Israel will hold unprecedented second election after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu fails to form

BREAKING: Israel’s parliament voted to dissolve itself early Thursday after Netanyahu failed to form a government ahead of a midnight deadline, despite his Likud party winning the largest number of seats in April 9 elections. The move prevents Israel’s president from being able to call on an alternative candidate to attempt to form a government.

Bannon described Trump Organization as 'criminal enterprise', Michael Wolff book claims

The former White House adviser Steve Bannon has described the Trump Organization as a criminal entity and predicted that investigations into the president’s finances will lead to his political downfall, when he is revealed to be “not the billionaire he said he was, just another scumbag”.



The startling remarks are contained in Siege: Trump Under Fire, the author Michael Wolff’s forthcoming account of the second year of the Trump administration. The book, published on 4 June, is a sequel to Fire and Fury: Trump in the White House, which was a bestseller in 2018. The Guardian obtained a copy.

In a key passage, Bannon is reported as saying he believes investigations of Donald Trump’s financial history will provide proof of the underlying criminality of his eponymous company.Assessing the president’s exposure to various investigations, many seeded by the special counsel Robert Mueller during his investigation of Russian election interference, Wolff writes: “Trump was vulnerable because for 40 years he had run what increasingly seemed to resemble a semi-criminal enterprise.”He then quotes Bannon as saying: “I think we can drop the ‘semi’ part.”

In Siege, Wolff quotes Bannon saying investigations into Trump’s finances will cut adrift even his most ardent supporters: “This is where it isn’t a witch hunt – even for the hard core, this is where he turns into just a crooked business guy, and one worth $50m instead of $10bn.

“Not the billionaire he said he was, just another scumbag.”

Trump's hardcore supporters will still be singing his praises . They're completely deluded.

This is not okay. Airmen onboard the USS Wasp wearing patches with a likeness of Trump

Airmen onboard the USS WASP wearing patches on their jumpsuits that read “Make Aircrew Great Again.” The patches include an image in the center in the likeness of President Trump.

This is a violation of Article 134 of the UCMJ. This can’t be tolerated! When I swore my oath in 1975 it was to my country, not to a potus, and nothing has changed. Wearing patches or insignia in fealty to President is no different than showing fealty to a dictator. @tedlieu




Trump's visiting the USS Wasp today and the troops stationed in Japan.

Well, this is inappropriate. Literally, no separation of powers at all.

An unusual group on Air Force Two today: Vice President, Senate Majority Leader, and Chief Justice all on the plane. Rare to have that trio together, particularly on a flight.

An example of how important representation is to anyone not male and white

@JimMFelton Folks I’ve been staring at this picture of the people who voted to force women to give birth even in the case of rape and incest for about 10 minutes and I’m getting the weirdest feeling representation might be important.



@JimMFelton White man number 7 looks like he’s proud to be the most qualified in the vote on abortion because he once read about a vagina in a book


Two of the people who voted to ban abortion were called Greg. *Gregs* were better represented than women.


One of the men was named Randy. Fucking *Randies* were also better represented than women, because what I'm saying is there were zero women involved in the abortion vote.
