1…………> China Meddling: Trump


President Trump accused China of attempting to interfere with the upcoming United States congressional elections, and claimed opposition to his robust trade policy motivates its efforts, a charge China dismissed claims as rubbish and “nonsense.”

Mr. Trump pointed to a Chinese state media company’s four-page supplement in Iowa’s Sunday Des Moines Register promoting the mutual benefits of US-China trade as “propaganda.”

“China is placing propaganda ads in the Des Moines Register and other papers, made to look like news,” Mr. Trump said in a tweet.

“I love China. I think they’re great. But you don’t hear that so much anymore. You know who’s great now? We’re great now,” Mr. Trump said.

He added that he would describe Chinese President Xi Jinping as a friend, prompting a reporter to ask how that could be the case given the allegations of meddling.

“Maybe he’s not anymore, I’ll be honest with you,” Mr. Trump replied.

Aliens arrested during this operation are from the following eight countries: Columbia (1), Guatemala (6), Honduras (2), Mexico (68), Nicaragua (3), Russia (1), Thailand (1) and Vietnam (1).

More than half of the aliens arrested had prior criminal histories that included convictions for the following crimes.

4…………> A Hippie Melodrama: Pile Of Lies


The 51-year-old college professor named Christine Blasey Ford fought back the tears and said she was “terrified,” but wanted to share her experience “because I believe it is my civic duty to tell what happened to while Brett Kavanaugh and I were in high school” as she told a Senate committee about an alleged sexual assault by President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee when they were both teenagers in the 1980s.

Ford said Kavanaugh locked her in a bedroom during a social gathering and pinned her to the bed. “Brett groped me and tried to take off my clothes. He was having a hard time because he was inebriated… I believed he was going to rape me.”

The high-stakes hearing could determine Kavanaugh’s chances of securing the lifetime post on the country’s top court. Kavanaugh, who was to appear separately, was expected to tell senators he did not commit any of the crimes leveled against him.

Ford said her strongest memory from the alleged assault was that Kavanaugh and another boy were “drunkenly laughing during the attack…and they’re having fun at my expense.”
Ford said she suffered anxiety and PTSD-type symptoms, and struggled academically in the years after the incident.
