‘One reliable way to know that Donald Trump has reversed himself on an issue is if he denies having done any such thing.

The pattern repeats itself: his Administration is dealt a major setback—the courts blocking his travel bans, the G.O.P. health-care bill dying in the House—and Trump responds by decreeing that “great progress” is being made and the media is neglecting to cover it.

It’s easy to become inured to how bizarre this is: America has a President who denies observable reality and uses his social-media accounts to feed his supporters an alternate version of the truth. All politicians spin. Trump lies, regularly and brazenly.

‘The Grooming of a President for France has been in the making for a number of years. With Hollande’s approval consistently tanking, the shadows knew they needed to find someone younger, charismatic, a Socialist, someone whose greed and lust for power could easily be bought. And they found Emmanuel Macron.

He attended one of France’s most elite schools where he was trained in Civil Service, graduating in 2004. His biography states that in 2007, he served as deputy rapporteur for the Commission to improve French growth headed by Jacques Attali, Macron was 29. But the Commission wasn’t formed until 2008.  Obviously he is a bit ‘math challenged’.  The  Commission report was heavily criticized for its proposal to ‘relaunch immigration’ and ‘open borders’… Attali was ridiculed and called a ‘globalist’.’

‘Nicola Sturgeon admitted today her plan to press ahead with a new independence referendum would have to be postponed until after the election.

The SNP leader had vowed to outline the ‘next steps’ to force a re-run of the 2014 poll when Theresa May rejected official pleas to call one.

The threat was widely seen as signalling SNP plans to hold an unofficial referendum in defiance of Westminster.

But today Ms Sturgeon admitted her plot would have to wait, prompting scorn from Scottish Tory leader Ruth Davidson.

The concession came after a bombshell poll showed support for independence has slumped to 40 per cent.’

Julian Assange said Pompeo was wrong when he said the WikiLeaks publisher has no First Amendment rights because he is not an American citizen.

“It underscores just how dangerous it is for an unelected official whose agency’s work is rooted in lying and misdirection to be the sole arbiter of the truth and the interpreter of the Constitution,” Assange said.’
