Trump confirms meeting with Kim after seeing top Pyongyang aide at Oval Office | 01 June 2018 | A meeting between leaders of the US and North Korea will take place in Singapore on June 12, US President Donald Trump confirmed after receiving a senior official from Pyongyang at the White House.

He confirmed that the scheduled meeting, which had earlier appeared to be in jeopardy, will take place.

Trump says summit with North Korea will take place on June 12 | 01 June 2018 | President Trump said Friday that his meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will take place as scheduled on June 12, ending a week of uncertainty about the historic summit. Trump made the announcement after an 80-minute meeting in the Oval Office with top North Korea official Kim Yong Chol, who hand-delivered a personal letter from Kim Jong Un -- a symbolic gesture aimed at easing tensions that led Trump last week to scrap the summit. "We're going to be June 12 -- we'll be in Singapore. It'll be a beginning," Trump told reporters on the South Lawn, adding, "I think we're going to have a very positive result in the end."

We Ran Out of Words to Describe How Good the Jobs Numbers Are

We Ran Out of Words to Describe How Good the Jobs Numbers Are --The economy is in a sweet spot, with steady growth and broad improvement in the labor market. | 01 June 2018 | The real question in analyzing the May jobs numbers released Friday is whether there are enough synonyms for "good" in an online thesaurus to describe them adequately. So, for example, "splendid" and "excellent" fit the bill. Those are the kinds of terms that are appropriate when the United States economy adds 223,000 jobs in a month, despite being nine years into an expansion, and when the unemployment rate falls to 3.8 percent, a new 18-year low. "Salubrious," "salutary" and "healthy" work as words to describe the 0.3 percent rise in average hourly earnings, which are up 2.7 percent over the last year...And a broader definition of unemployment, which includes people who have given up looking for a job out of frustration, fell to 7.6 percent. The jobless rate for African-Americans fell to 5.9 percent, the lowest on record, which we would count as "great."

He was leaving his office when witnesses say they heard a loud argument then gunfire as he was shot on Thursday...Pitt also consulted in the 1999 Columbine High School shooting.

Trump considering clemency for Blagojevich, Stewart

Trump considering clemency for Blagojevich, Stewart | 31 May 2018 | President Trump on Thursday said he is considering commuting the sentence of former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich (D) and pardoning TV personality Martha Stewart. Trump's comments come hours after he pardoned conservative commentator Dinesh D'Souza, who pleaded guilty to a felony campaign finance violation. Last week, the president offered a posthumous pardon for the boxer Jack Johnson. Trump told reporters in his private cabin aboard Air Force One he believes Blagojevich was "being stupid" but added that "every other politician" has done it and that his sentence is excessive.

Prosecutors interview Comey as they investigate whether McCabe should be charged | 31 May 2018 | Investigators from the D.C. U.S. Attorney's Office recently interviewed former FBI director James B. Comey as part of a probe into whether his deputy, Andrew McCabe, broke the law by lying to federal agents -- an indication the office is seriously considering whether McCabe should be charged with a crime, a person familiar with the matter said. Justice Department Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz accused McCabe in April of misleading investigators and Comey four times -- three of them under oath -- about authorizing a disclosure to the media. Horowitz referred the findings to the D.C. U.S. Attorney's Office to determine whether criminal charges are warranted. Lying to federal investigators can carry a five-year prison sentence, though McCabe disputes that he intentionally misled anyone.

Samantha Bee insults Ivanka Trump with obscene phrase

Samantha Bee insults Ivanka Trump with obscene phrase | 31 May 2018 | Comedian Samantha Bee has apologised after insulting Ivanka Trump with an obscene phrase on her television show. Bee was lambasting the White House adviser and US first daughter over the immigration policy of her father President Donald Trump. Conservatives demanded Bee be fired like Roseanne Barr, whose sitcom was cancelled this week after she posted a racist tweet..."You know, Ivanka, that's a beautiful photo of you and your child, but let me just say, one mother to another, do something about your dad's immigration practices," Bee said. She then called Ms Trump a "feckless [c---]". The term she used is widely viewed as the most offensive epithet to call a woman. Bee urged the first daughter to confront her father about [immigration] policy. "He listens to you," she said. "Put on something tight and low-cut and tell your father to [f---ing] stop it."

"You can lock secret things here," the top Russian diplomat said with a smile as he gave the North's leader a key to it.

New Bipartisan Bill Could Give Any President the Power to Imprison U.S. Citizens in Military Detention Forever

New Bipartisan Bill Could Give Any President the Power to Imprison U.S. Citizens in Military Detention Forever | 01 May 2018 | One of the most outrageous acts of Barack Obama's presidency was his failure to veto the National Defense Authorization Act for fiscal year 2012. The fiscal year 2012 NDAA included provisions that appeared to both codify and expand a power the executive branch had previously claimed to possess -- namely, the power to hold individuals, including U.S. citizens, in military detention indefinitely -- based on the Authorization to Use Military Force passed by Congress three days after 9/11... Not surprisingly, Obama's decision generated enormous outcry across the political spectrum, from Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, on the right to Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., on the left. ...[N]ow, incredibly enough, a bipartisan group of six lawmakers, led by Sens. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., and Tim Kaine, D-Va., is proposing a new AUMF that would greatly expand who the president can place in indefinite military detention, all in the name of restricting presidential power. If the Corker-Kaine bill becomes law as currently written, any president, including Donald Trump, could plausibly claim extraordinarily broad power to order the military to imprison any U.S. citizen, captured in America or not, and hold them without charges essentially forever.

After reports of Babchenko's killing, some Ukrainian officials rushed to accuse Russian intelligence services of masterminding the assassination...

Missouri governor resigns amid widening investigations

Missouri governor resigns amid widening investigations | 29 May 2018 | Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens, a sometimes brash political outsider whose unconventional resume as a Rhodes scholar and Navy SEAL officer made him a rising star in the Republican Party, resigned Tuesday amid a widening investigation that arose from an affair with his former hairdresser.

The probes into his conduct by prosecutors and lawmakers began with allegations stemming from the affair and expanded to include questions about whether he violated campaign-finance laws. Greitens said his resignation would take effect Friday.

However, Sessions declined to walk back his decision.

Is There a Link Between Vaccines and the Rise in Pediatric Cancer?

Is There a Link Between Vaccines and the Rise in Pediatric Cancer? | 28 May 2018 | According to the American Cancer Society, after accidents, cancer is the second leading cause of death in children between the ages of one and four. Although pediatrics cancers account for less than one percent of all cancers diagnosed each year, the number of children diagnosed with cancer has been rising steadily over the last few decades... In the United States, the number of vaccines government health officials' direct pediatricians to give to children has almost quadrupled in the last 60 years...The CDC's 2018 childhood vaccine schedule recommends 50 doses of 14 vaccines [!] before the age of six. Coinciding with the significant increase in the number of vaccines is a simultaneous increase in chronic neurological and autoimmune disorders in children, including pediatric cancer. Most vaccine package inserts include a statement along the lines of, "This vaccine has not been evaluated for its carcinogenic or mutagenic potentials or impairment of fertility," which suggests that the potential link between cancer and vaccines has not been thoroughly studied. In fact, some vaccine ingredients, such as formaldehyde are known carcinogens.
