There are new details about the president’s alleged relationship with adult-film star Stormy Daniels. According to a report by Mother Jones, Daniels once claimed that the president made her spank him with an issue of Forbes magazine.
The information came from an email exchange between two campaign consultants who worked with Daniels back in 2009, when she was considering running for Senator of Louisiana (one of her potential campaign slogans was "Stormy Daniels: Screwing people honestly.")
When one consultant, Andrea Dubé, expressed surprise that Donald Trump was listed as one of Daniel’s possible campaign contributors, the other consultant replied:
"Yep. She says one time he made her sit with him for three hours watching "shark week." Another time he had her spank him with a Forbes magazine." Had it been 0bumhole, it would probably have been an old issue of Sesame Street.
None of Daniels’ reps have commented on the story, nor has Trump’s lawyer, Michael Cohen.
As for Trump, it is unclear how he feels about spanking, but his feelings about sharks are clear.
Time to update libel laws. The 14th Amendment has been grossly abused by SCOTUS to implement the failed Equal Rights Amendment. However, if they really want 'equal' rights there should never be two standards of libel, one for public and another for private citizens. There should only be one.
[AlAhram] Following a delay accompanied by much speculation US Vice President Mike Pence is now scheduled to arrive in the Middle East for a three-leg visit, beginning in Egypt on 20 January and then taking in Jordan and Israel.
He is expected to meet al-Sissi for a few hours in al-Ittahidiya Palace.
The Pence visit, originally scheduled for 20 December, was delayed following US President Donald Trump

Should have kicked Turkey out of NATO when they refused to even provide bases during the invasion of Iraq. That was a clear sign that the mission to defend against the Soviets was long gone and the alliance had no real purpose anymore.
[Armed&Dangerous] This is an expanded version of a comment I left on Megan McArdle’s post
Listen to the ’Bad Feminists’ in which she muses on the "Grace"-vs.-Aziz-Ansari scandalette and wonders why younger women report feeling so powerless and used.
It’s not complicated, Megan. You actually got most of it already, but I don’t think you quite grasp how comprehensive the trap is yet. Younger women feel powerless because they live in a dating environment where sexual license has gone from an option to a minimum bid.
The leading edge of the sexual revolution give women options they didn’t have before; its completion has taken away many of the choices they used to have by trapping them in a sexual-competition race for the bottom.
A little more than a year into President Donald Trump’s term and much remains the same. Liberals still claim he is the modern incarnation of Hitler or Satan. Never-Trumpers continue to wait for the Administration to implode. Even so, if you look beneath the surface of rhetoric and denial, it quickly becomes clear the President Trump has become the "un-Obama", acting "to reduce government employment, deregulate, sanction radical expansion of fossil-fuel production, question the economic effects of globalization on Americans between the coasts, address deindustrialization, recalibrate the tax code, rein in the EPA, secure the border, reduce illegal immigration, or question transnational organizations."
According to the National Review, Obama was the first modern president to figure out how to prevent the national economy from growing 3% in a single year. He did so through "the efforts of a 24/7 redistributionist agenda of tax increases, federalizing health care, massive new debt, layers of more regulation, zero-interest rates, neo-socialist regulatory appointments, expansionary eligibility for entitlements, and constant anti-free-market jawboning that created a psychological atmosphere conducive to real retrenchment, mental holding patterns, and legitimate fears over discernable success." Add to that the militarization of agencies like the IRS and the DOJ, not to mention the EPA. Is it any wonder so many look at the Feds with suspicion and fear these days?
..."One would have thought that all Republican presidents and presidential candidate would be something like the antitheses to progressivism. In truth, few really were. So given the lateness of the national hour, a President Nobama could prove to be quite a change," writes Victor Hanson Davis. As I said before, lets hope that Obama's era was peak stupidity in USA, and hence the World's, affairs.
[Aljazeera] Accra, Ghana - They have come from the big cities of San Francisco, Chicago, and New York. Thousands of them. And many refuse to return. Thousands I tell you, thousands!
A new wave of African Americans is escaping the incessant racism and prejudice in the United States. From Senegal and Ghana to The Gambia, communities are emerging in defiance of conventional wisdom that Africa is a continent everyone is trying to leave.
It is estimated that between 3,000 and 5,000 African Americans live in Accra, the Ghanaian capital. They are teachers in small towns in the west or entrepreneurs in the capital and say they that even though living in Ghana is not always easy, they feel free and safe. No phones, running water, or indoor plumbing.... does take some getting used to.
Take Muhammida el-Muhajir, a digital marketer from New York City, who left her job to move to Accra.
She says she moved, because despite her education and experience, she was always made to feel like a second-class citizen. Moving was an opportunity to fulfil her potential and avoid being targeted by racial violence. Digital Marketer moves to Ghana? At least she'll have more free time.
She told Al Jazeera her story:
On life as a second-class citizen in the US... "I grew up in Philadelphia and then New York. I went to Howard, which is a historically black university. I tell people that Ghana is like Howard in real life. It felt like a microcosm of the world. At university, they tell us the world isn't black, but there are places where this is the real world. Howard prepares you for a world where black people are in charge, which is a completely different experience compared to people who have gone to predominantly white universities." Emphasis added.
#2 You are so correct. This has got to be fake news. Africans have no desire to allow America Blacks in their countries because they have no respect for them. In Africa how dark you are is what differentiates one group from another. Americans suffer an added liability because their views are so alien there. When in America blacks I have found see the Blacks here as too full of hate and full of race issues. Drugs, crime and family breakdown are no badges of honor. Yes, they have their crime there so why import more.
"I went to Howard, which is a historically black university". Yes, founded by white people for minorities. Not just for Black people. In the main hall lobby you will see the many oil paintings of the founders and as I recall they are all white.
[NYPost] This week we saw a few perfect examples of why liberal coastal elites are so resentful of middle America: It’s because the supposed rubes and rednecks aren’t more resentful of the elites ‐ or, more specifically, the elites’ "success."
They don’t aspire to be like their self-appointed betters.
Some Americans just don’t need much; they don’t think there’s anything wrong with wanting to have a 1,500-square-foot house, watch football and go to church on Sunday. They don’t want to leave their hometowns to come to Silicon Valley or Washington, DC, or Manhattan. They place great value on community and living near family and carrying out family traditions.
That’s not hate, that’s not stupidity, that’s not racism ‐ it’s their own version of the American dream. Continues.
Just for fun, word search "Melinda Byerley" and read what the li'l darlin' said about me and, presumably, you.
I proudly fly my flag in my NATIVE San Diego. I know it's easier to disparage all Californians, but that cheap slander. You might want to take a higher road and support the patriotic sane Californians. San Diego County military stations would beat most nations in a war

Because? We refuse to be ruled. We refuse to be forced into things "for our own good" by the government.
And only partially can we be governed, and even then, only by our peers who know better than try to control us.
They hate us because we will not obey them mindlessly like the Progressive fodder they have created in the universities and urban areas.
