Losses deepen at Trump's Scotland properties, new financial reports show

https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/losses-deepen-at-trumps-scotland-properties-new-financial-reports-show/2019/10/08/08ddf890-e9d4-11e9-bafb-da248f8d5734_story.html

The Trump Organization’s two Scottish golf courses lost $14.3 million in 2018, extending a multiyear string of losses that have intensified since Donald Trump took office, according to annual financial reports released this month.

The results add further pressure to two of President Trump’s key overseas investments at a time when the company faces backlashes on many fronts, including customers who shun the president’s family business for political reasons and golf course neighbors upset by the company’s plans to build hundreds of new homes on bucolic farmland.

The losses at the two Scotland courses — the Turnberry resort along the southwestern coast and another seaside course near Aberdeen in the northeast — were detailed in documents filed by the Trump Organization with the British government and posted online in recent days.

Rwanda deports US pastor who called women "evil", objected to abortions/condoms

?ve=1&tl=1


Conservative Baptist missionary Gregg Schoof was deported after allegedly overstaying his work permit. He had been living in the country since 2003, the New Times reported on Tuesday, citing immigration authorities. Police arrested him for what they called an illegal meeting with journalists to criticize the government's shutdown of his local radio station and church.


He said his family is going to Uganda to start several radio stations, evangelism, and possibly start a church there. He said he hopes to one day go back to Rwanda to reopen the church.

"It's a very sad day but we try to make it very happy also," the pastor shared in the video. "Some of our church folks have decided to come just to wish us goodbye."


Schoof's Amazing Grace radio station was banned last year after authorities said it broadcast a sermon that described women as "evil."

The New Times report said Schoof released a statement on Monday criticizing Rwanda authorities for loosening restrictions on abortion and schools for handing out condoms.

'What century are we in!?': Teen turned away from homecoming dance for wearing jumpsuit

https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2019/10/07/jumpsuit-wearing-tampa-teen-turned-away-homecoming-dance-no-dress/






Before her homecoming dance, Darcy Krueger had done the near-impossible: Figuring out a semiformal look that was comfortable, stylish, and didn’t violate the event’s ban on plunging backs and low-cut dresses. After leaving a store empty-handed, the high school senior settled on a dressy black jumpsuit from her own closet, pairing it with strappy heels, a statement necklace and an elaborate hairstyle.

But when the 17-year-old showed up at the private dance for hundreds of home-schooled students in the Tampa area on Sept. 27, she was turned away at the door. The event’s organizer pointed to the dress code, which stated that young women were required to wear dresses.

“I thought there had to be a misunderstanding,” Darcy’s mother, Melissa Krueger, told Yahoo on Friday. “What century are we in!?”

Her confusion was understandable. Jumpsuits have exploded in popularity in recent years, becoming practically ubiquitous at weddings and other formal occasions. Once associated with the 1970s, the flattering one-piece garments are now a staple of the Oscars red carpet, and white jumpsuits have become a trendy alternative to bridal gowns. And while women have been dressing up in pantsuits and so-called menswear for decades, many of today’s teenagers are rejecting traditional gender norms altogether. Last month, Brandon Allen, a gay high school senior in Memphis, accepted the gender-neutral title of “Homecoming Royalty” in a floor-length gown, telling the Commercial Appeal, “I decided to wear a dress because I strongly believe in the fact that I’m a queen.”

Though Darcy received a refund on her $50 homecoming ticket, she and her mother were angered to learn that she wouldn’t be allowed to attend the dance unless she went home and changed first.

“The bigger question is, why can’t a girl wear something other than a dress?” Darcy’s mother told CNN. “This isn’t ‘Little House on the Prairie.’ ”

....to see. Importantly, Ambassador Sondland’s tweet, which few report, stated, “I believe you are incorrect about President Trump’s intentions. The President has been crystal clear: no quid pro quo’s of any kind.” That says it ALL!

trump repeats lie

TRUMP: "When I took over our military, we did not have ammunition. I was told by a top general, maybe the top of them all, 'Sir, I'm sorry sir, we don't have ammunition.' I said, I will never let that happen to another president."

"Donald Trump has issued a strange, rambling defence ..."

Donald Trump has issued a strange, rambling defence of his controversial decision to green light Turkey’s invasion of Syria, insisting he had consulted with everyone before acting and that Britain was among those parties “thrilled by the decision.

Just hours after the White House announced, in what represented a major policy shift in the Middle East, that it was withdrawing US troops from part of northern Syria ahead of a planned Turkish military operation, the president claimed more people supported the decision than disagreed.

He said the UK was among those parties who agreed with the policy shift, which critics say opens the door to Turkey to attack Kurdish forces previously backed by the West.

“A lot of people have their opinion. I could name many who are extremely thrilled that we’re coming home ,” he said at the White House.

“The UK is very thrilled at this decision. As you know, they have soldiers over there also. And others. But many people agree with it very strongly. I understand both sides of it very well.”
