Pence denies discussing invoking 25th Amendment against Trump | 08 Sept 2018 | Vice President Pence denied that any discussions have taken place in the White House about the possibility of removing President Trump by invoking the 25th Amendment in a new interview with CBS News set to air Sunday. Asked whether any such discussions had taken place between members of Trump's Cabinet, Pence was adamant that none had occurred. "No, never. And why would we be, Margaret?" Pence asked CBS's Margaret Brennan on "Face the Nation."

Kennedy International Airport in New York after they were told that more than 100 passengers aboard an Emirates airlines flight from Dubai were experiencing flu-like symptoms. Dr. Martin Cetron, director for the division of Global Migration and Quarantine at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, told Reuters in a telephone interview that health officials evaluated nearly 549 passengers at the airport, and sent a total of 11 people to a local hospital for more testing.

I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration

Fri, 09/07/2018 - 03:46

NYT Anonymous Op-Ed aka Coup Advertorial: I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration | 05 Sept 2018 | President Trump is facing a test to his presidency unlike any faced by a modern American leader. It's not just that the special counsel looms large. Or that the country is bitterly divided over Mr. Trump's leadership... The dilemma -- which he does not fully grasp -- is that many of the senior officials in his own administration are working diligently from within to frustrate parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations... Given the instability many witnessed, there were early whispers within the cabinet of invoking the 25th Amendment, which would start a complex process for removing the president. But no one wanted to precipitate a constitutional crisis. So we will do what we can to steer the administration in the right direction until -- one way or another -- it's over.

Twitter bans Alex Jones and InfoWars

Thu, 09/06/2018 - 22:17

Twitter bans Alex Jones and InfoWars | 06 Sept 2018 | Twitter banned right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and his website InfoWars from its platform Thursday afternoon, a month after several of its Silicon Valley counterparts did so. Jones was suspended from Twitter for one week last month after he posted a video in which he said, "Now is time to act on the enemy before they do a false flag." But Twitter did not ban him from its platform then, even after YouTube, Apple and Facebook each kicked him off. Twitter also said that it "will take action" if in the future it discovers other accounts being used to get around the ban of Jones and InfoWars. The company made its decision a day after Jones accosted a CNN reporter, Oliver Darcy, on Capitol Hill, and livestreamed the encounter through Periscope, which Twitter owns.
