Column: An apology to Donald Trump, from the 'fake news' media

As a fake news media member in good standing, I would like to sincerely apologize for forcing you to hold a campaign rally eight months into your first term as president.
I'm sorry that in the course of that rally I forced you to misquote yourself and to devote one reference to Heather Heyer, the woman killed during the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, versus an inordinate number of references to the journalists who cover you and your administration.
I definitely should not have made you fail to mention the 10 American sailors who died or are missing from the Navy destroyer USS John S. McCain after it collided with an oil tanker Monday.
That was callous of me, and I am deeply sorry.

Theres an Unprecedented Wildfire in Greenland. Thats Bad News for the Arctic.

This is going to sound weird, but there’s a wildfire right now in west Greenland. You know, that huge island of mostly ice? Part of it is on fire.

There’s been nothing even close to this since reliable satellite-based fire detection records began in Greenland in 2000. Very small wildfires can evade satellite detection, and old-timer scientists who have worked in Greenland for decades say that micro-fires there aren’t necessarily uncommon.

This week’s fire, however, is on another level


But global warming is just a vast conspiracy by left-wingers.

8 German Exchange Students Denied Entry at Denver Airport

The eight German students who arrived at Denver International Airport Friday to begin four weeks learning English with host families in Salida instead received a lesson in U.S. immigration policies.
U.S. Customs and Border Patrol and Customs officers determined while questioning the students that they did not have the proper visas to enter the U.S., said agency spokesperson Jamie Ruiz.
Immigration officials decided the students would have to return to Germany on the next available flight on the same airline by which they arrived, which was at 5:15 p.m. Saturday. Customs and Border Patrol held the students in a room at the airport until they boarded that flight.
The debacle left the students exhausted and resulted from immigration officials applying regulations differently than they had in the past, said Salida resident Susan Masterson, who has coordinated the exchange program, Rocky Mountain Language Adventure, since 2012.
The students applied for and received traveler visa waivers to participate in the exchange program, just as other German students in the program have for the past five years.


No one is welcome in Trump's America

Trump Removes Anthony Scaramucci From Communications Director Role

Source: MSN

President Trump has decided to remove Anthony Scaramucci from his position as communications director, three people close to the decision said Monday, relieving him just days after Mr. Scaramucci unloaded a crude verbal tirade against other senior members of the president’s senior staff.

It was not clear whether Mr. Scaramucci will remain employed at the White House in another position or will leave altogether.

Donald Trump has been asked to make a 'dummy run' visit to Britain

Donald Trump has been asked to make a ‘dummy’ State visit to Britain this year to show he can avoid embarrassing the Queen.

He has been invited to come for brief talks with Theresa May – but with none of the Royal pomp and circumstance he wanted.

The decision will be hailed as a victory by nearly two million people who signed a petition calling for the trip to be downgraded to spare the Queen’s blushes because of Trump’s ‘misogyny and vulgarity’.


Do you think he would consider this an honor because he gets to go twice?

Iowa to LOWER minimum wage

Heartless In The Heartland

In an appalling move to keep low-wage workers locked in poverty, the Iowa legislature this week gave final approval to a bill that reverses local minimum wage increases already approved in several counties and bans cities and counties from setting any wage and benefit standards. It is the first time that a state has nullified local minimum wage ordinances that had already taken effect and forced jurisdictions to lower minimum wage rates that had previously been raised.

On a vote of 29-21, Republicans in the Iowa Senate voted unanimously for the bill, which passed the House earlier. After signing it today, Governor Terry Branstad will forever be known as the governor who robbed tens of thousands of Iowa’s lowest-paid workers of their pay raises.
