Trump administration to change transgender student bathroom rules

International Affairs
The Trump administration is poised to issue new guidance outlining which to change transgender student bathroom rules, restrooms transgender students can use, potentially sowing confusion in schools, angering LGBTQ rights groups and adding uncertainty to a widely discussed case due to come before the U.S. Supreme Court next month. Speaking to reporters Tuesday, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said President Donald Trump “has maintained for a long time that this is a states’ rights issue and not one for the federal government.” Spicer announced that there would be “further guidance” coming soon on the issue from the administration. He offered no timeline, and the U.S. Department of Education did not immediately reply to a request for more information. The Obama administrati

Thousands expected at ‘Not My Presidents Day’ rallies Monday

International Affairs
Anti-Trump activists have seized on Monday’s federal holiday to organize “Not My Presidents Day” rallies in cities around the country. Protest leaders say they expect thousands to take to the streets in Los Angeles, Chicago, New York and as many as two dozen other communities in the latest round of demonstrations to oppose the policies of President Donald Trump. Some 13,000 Facebook users, for instance, say they plan to join a noon protest Monday near Manhattan’s Central Park. “While we acknowledge that Donald Trump holds the current title, the policies he’s trying to put in place are not the beliefs shared by the majority of the people,” said Nova Calise, a television production manager and one of the organizers of New York event. “We do not accept Donald Trump as our pres

Donald Trump Explains Sweden Terror Comment That Baffled a Nation

International Affairs
After bewildering residents and officials of Sweden by suggesting Saturday that a terror-related incident had occurred over the weekend in the small Nordic nation, President Donald Trump attributed his comment to a Fox News interview with a conservative filmmaker. "We've got to keep our country safe. You look at what's happening in Germany, you look at what's happening last night in Sweden," Trump told the crowd at his campaign-like rally in Florida on Saturday, critiquing Europe's refugee policies and complaining that his travel ban had suffered setbacks in court. "Sweden, who would believe this?" It was unclear following the rally what could have occurred in Sweden to draw the president's attention, and the Swedish Embassy asked for clarity. Trump took to his Twitter account...
Three Ways New EPA Head Scott Pruitt Will Dismantle Environmental Protection

Three Ways New EPA Head Scott Pruitt Will Dismantle Environmental Protection

International Affairs
Despite extraordinary backlash, former Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt has just been named to head the Environmental Protection Agency for the Trump administration. The vote came one day after a judge ruled Pruitt has until Tuesday to release 3000 emails between himself and executive members of the fossil fuel industry. It's a highly controversial appointment celebrated by many in the fossil fuel industry, and dreaded by a number of environmental scientists, some of whom now work for him. To recap: Pruitt, who has sued the EPA 14 times as Oklahoma Attorney General, and wouldn't promise to recuse himself from ongoing suits once he was confirmed, once described himself as the "leading advocate against the EPA's activist agenda". He is on the record saying that the "[climate change]...

Has the Process to Impeach Donald Trump Begun?

International Affairs
On 15 February 2017, left-of-center web site BipartisanReport.com posted a story with a misleading clickbait headline: “Donald Trump Impeachment Process Begins – FEC Paperwork Filed – Tantrum Imminent.” The story then went on to report that a California Democrat, Boyd Roberts of Laguna Beach, had announced plans to challenge the sitting Republican, Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, and has simultaneously launched a political action committee called “Impeach Trump”: Boyd Roberts, a Democrat in California, has officially registered with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) to run gainst Rohrabacher, and he has an interesting plan to do so. Roberts has submitted the required paperwork to the FEC to establish an “Impeach Trump” leadership political action committee (PAC). The PAC is meant to raise m

Rosie O’Donnell hints at Steve Bannon portrayal

International Affairs
OK let me set up the scenario. You are going to race Rosie O'Donnell in a 50 yard sprint with a Snickers Bar at the finish line. Who would win? My guess is you could not. Neither could I, but our speed is not the reason why. The reason why is she wants it worse than we do. This may or may not be true, but let's analyze this from an Internet marketing standpoint. When it comes to building your Internet business how fast are you? An even better way to look at this is how bad do you want a successful Internet business? If I was to compete against you at building an Internet business I am willing to bet I would win. The reason very simply put is I want it worse than you do!
