Body language experts have hilarious takes on the 'distant pained' marriage of the Trumps

31 DEC 2018 AT 15:42 ET

Experts in body movement and language and it’s subtle revelations on the psychology of an individual have been watching the Trump family and have some hilarious observations.

Social News Daily collected commentaries about President Donald Trump and first lady Melania to gain some insight into their relationship behind the scenes.

Beltway rumors have been that the Trumps are on the rocks after it was revealed the president cheated on his wife when she was recovering from giving birth to their son. To make matters worse, Trump’s series of mistresses revealed a great deal of humiliating information about him.

The first indication something wasn’t working out were the infamous “hand swatting” incidents from early in the Trump term. It doesn’t take an expert to know something was afoot.


'Very unfair': Trump whines about Senate not approving his ambassador picks in New Year's Eve attack

31 DEC 2018 AT 15:15 ET

President Donald Trump closed out 2018 with a Twitter rant against Democrats for not approving his nominees to be ambassadors.

Specifically, Trump attacked the minority leader in the Senate, Democrat Chuck Schumer, despite the fact Republicans, led by Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY), control the chamber.

“Heads of countries are calling wanting to know why Senator Schumer is not approving their otherwise approved Ambassadors!?” Trump claimed. “Likewise in Government lawyers and others are being delayed at a record pace!”

Trump said “360 great and hardworking people” were “waiting for approval from Senator Schumer.”

“These are people who have been approved by committees and all others, yet Schumer continues to hold them back from serving their Country!” he claimed.


.........he really is deflecting malignant narcissistic psychopathic POS, you caused this asshole, here lets run the tape...........the full sixteen minutes.........................you own this asshole, all 100% of this shit...........

BUSTED: Reporter catches Trump in a bald-faced lie about being in the Oval Office

31 DEC 2018 AT 10:49 ET

President Donald Trump on Monday morning claimed that he was sitting inside the Oval Office waiting for Democrats to come to him with a deal for funding his proposed border wall.

“I’m in the Oval Office,” the president wrote. “Democrats, come back from vacation now and give us the votes necessary for Border Security, including the Wall.”

However, Playboy White House correspondent Brian Karem was at the White House on Monday and he caught the president blatantly lying about being in the Oval Office.

Specifically, Karem noticed that there is currently no Marine standing guard outside the Oval Office door, which means that Trump is simply not where he said he was.

“No marine there so that’s another lie,” Karem remarked.


This asshole does not pay attention to "details"..................there is no Marine's standing at the doors........what a fucking idiot..........

Alabama sheriff pocketed millions of dollars allocated for food for inmates

But Todd Entrekin claims he did nothing wrong.

DEC 31, 2018, 11:17 AM

A series of investigations from AL.com have revealed that Todd Entrekin, the sheriff in Alabama’s Etowah County, personally pocketed over a million dollars that had been allocated to feeding inmates at the Etowah County Detention Center.

But Entrekin has claimed he did nothing wrong, and was simply following the letter of the law.

As the investigations revealed, Entrekin oversees the detention center, an imposing gray building in Gadsden, Alabama. The prison currently has a contract with the federal government to house hundreds of undocumented immigrants.

Some of that money is budgeted for feeding the inmates — but not all of it is spent on the detainees. Instead, citing an arcane Alabama statute that allows sheriffs to keep money not spent on inmate food, Entrekin personally pocketed a significant amount of the money that wasn’t spent on the inmates.



The operation, as Entrekin said, was his own “private business.”

Somewhere along the line the taxpayers in this country paid for this shit.................because the ICE people came in...............where is Trumps "guy" Whitaker DOJ on this issue................

US citizen has been arrested in Moscow by Russian security service agents
Paul Nicholas Whelan is accused by Russia of 'carrying out an act of espionage'
A criminal investigation into espionage has been opened, the FSB said
US State Department has been notified of arrest and requests consular access

Kremlin foe Bill Browder, who calls himself Vladimir Putin's 'Enemy Number One', has raised suspicion after an American was arrested for espionage in Russia.

Browder, an American-born British financier who spearhead the Magnitsky Act - which punishes Russian human rights violators - took to Twitter to express his concerns on Monday morning following the arrest of Paul Nicholas Whelan.

'Russia Detains US Citizen in Moscow on Suspicion of Espionage. Looks like Putin wants a hostage for leverage purposes,' he wrote.

'Generally countries kick out suspected foreign spies, not arrest them.'


So what is the traitor doing in the white house on this issue anyone hear a peep from him......................nope
Probably trying to make a back room deal on the Butina woman, after all he is the "Art of the Deal".
I wouldn't be surprised if he helped set this all up..............

Moscow announces arrest of American on espionage charges

Source: Think Progress

The move comes amidst new tensions over the fate of Maria Butina.

On Friday, one of Russia’s primary intelligence agencies announced that it had arrested an American for espionage.

According to a statement from the FSB, Russia’s successor to the Soviet-era KGB, Russian authorities arrested Paul Whelan in Moscow “during an act of espionage.”

The details offered by the FSB’s announcement were scant, and it’s still unclear where Whelan is being held or what exactly he was arrested for. The U.S. Embassy has yet to issue a statement, but the State Department told Newsweek that they have requested consular access. “We have requested this access and expect Russian authorities to provide it,” a State Department spokesperson said.

Charges of espionage carry sentences of up to 20 years in Russia.

Putin also fielded a question hinting that Russia should follow China’s recent precedent. China has recently begun arresting and holding Canadian citizens, apparently as retaliation for Canada’s arrest of a Huawei executive accused of breaching Iranian sanctions.

In response, Putin said, “This is a very sensitive area, and we will not act according to the laws of the Code of Hammurabi here. The law of retaliation states, ‘An eye for an eye or a tooth for a tooth.’ We need to act very cautiously here, and we need to be real.”

This story has been updated to include a statement by the State Department.

Anyone hear from the malignant narcissistic psychopath in the white house...................nope, not one word................

And now the blackmailing can begin......................Putin is full of shit..............quote:.it is an eye for and eye, and he wants his hands on Butina.....................he is a fucking KGB operative and as for China.................they are just as corrupt as Russia.........and he (Putin) is invoking the Code of Hammurabi...................he also is some fucking psychopath.....................


From 'rice bunny' to 'back up the car': China's year of censorship

Online freedom has come under sustained assault from Beijing in 2018, with references to Xi Jinping’s new powers among the prohibited phrases

China stepped up its campaign in 2018 to control what news and information its citizens can see.

While censors continued heavyhanded control for any content deemed dangerous for social stability, including Peppa Pig videos and the letter “n”, regulators also deployed more sophisticated methods, going beyond Chinese social media and working harder to curate and shape what Chinese residents consume.

Authorities have been forcing activists on Twitter to delete their accounts and shutting down the social media accounts of university professors. Apolitical content is coming under more scrutiny. In October, almost 10,000 social media accounts for outlets publishing entertainment and celebrity news were closed.

The country’s largest internet companies have also stepped up self-censorship. The messaging platform WeChat issued a statement in November, promising to step up its policing of “politically harmful information” while in April, the boss of Jinri Toutiao, a content aggregator, issued a public apology more similar to self-criticisms in Mao Zedong’s era.



‘Quangong carbon leakage’

In November, officials in Quanggang in the southern Fujian province reported a spillage of C9, a crude oil that is toxic to humans, off the coast of Fujian.

Local residents posted photos and accounts online of residents being sent to the hospital, arguing that the leak was more serious than officials claimed. Internet searches for “Xiamen Quangong carbon leakage” were blocked and video and posts related to the spill were deleted.

Officials initially reported that only seven tonnes of the chemical were dumped into the water. At a press conference later that month authorities admitted that almost 70 tonnes had been spilled.

So to everyone that supports to put plants such as Airplane manufacturing, and have a country attack unions and its people--------------------greed is good huh, so keep turning that blind eye, because after all toxic sludge from oil is not a problem, it does not vanish and one of the biggest polluters in the world thinks everyone is expendable to the communist cause, even if you don't live on the Fujian coast....................

New Horizons heads for flyby of space rock 4bn miles from Earth

Probe could get as close as 2,200 miles from Ultima Thule before beaming back images

A Nasa probe will perform the most distant flyby in history in the early hours of New Year’s Day when it barrels past a space rock called Ultima Thule on the outer edge of the solar system.

Unless gremlins intervene, the New Horizons spacecraft will zoom by the cosmic body at 5.33am GMT and snap thousands of photographs of the dark, icy body as it speeds on into the void.

Ultima Thule lies 4bn miles from Earth in the Kuiper belt, a band of dwarf planets, space rocks and icy debris left over from the formation of the solar system 4.6bn years ago.

New Horizons is so distant that mission scientists have no way of helping out if any last-minute glitches arise. Instead, any final troubleshooting must be handled by the probe’s onboard software.

“It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” said Hal Weaver, a research professor at Johns Hopkins University in Maryland and a project scientist on the New Horizons mission. “This is another great step in the exploration of our solar system.”


How Nancy Pelosi signaled the end of Donald Trump's easy ride

In one deft performance the top Democrat in the House owned the president, having faced down Republicans’ scare tactics and attacks from her own side

Nancy Pelosi was perched on the end of a sofa in the Oval Office when the balance of power in Donald Trump’s Washington decisively shifted in her favour.

The event in early December began as a simple photo call with Trump – the first attempt at bipartisan dialogue after the midterm elections saw Democrats take back control of the House of Representatives.

The president was in domineering form, making demands about funding for his stalled border wall and contemplating shutting down the government if a budget was not passed giving him $5bn for his unfulfilled promise.

“I think the American people recognise that we must keep government open, that a shutdown is not worth anything,” said Pelosi as Trump nodded. “And that we should not have a Trump shutdown.”

The president looked up and said: “A what? Did you say a Trump – ?”


The (he is not president) looks up and said: "A what? Did you say a Trump -?

How does it feel to be checkmated asshole..................you still can't comprehend that it is the year of the WOMAN.............

French Resistance hero who saved hundreds of Jewish children dies aged 108

Georges Loinger escaped from German camp and spent rest of the war helping children cross Swiss border

A French Resistance hero who used his ingenuity and athleticism to save the lives of hundreds of Jewish children during the second world war has died at the age of 108.

Georges Loinger, a talented athlete and cousin of the famous mime artist and fellow Resistance member Marcel Marceau, smuggled small groups of children across the Swiss border by throwing a ball and telling them to run after it.

Another ruse involved dressing children up as mourners and taking them to a cemetery whose wall abutted the French side of the border. With the help of a gravedigger’s ladder, the “mourners” clambered over the wall and headed for the border just feet away.

The children he saved, whose parents had been killed or sent to Nazi concentration camps, were under the responsibility of the Oeuvre de Secours aux Enfants, (OSE) a Jewish children’s aid society founded in St Petersburg in 1912.

France’s Holocaust Memorial Foundation said Loinger died on Friday. It described him as an “exceptional man”.
