Donald J Trump

Craig Deare, a Donald Trump white house senior official appointee have been fired just a month after he was appointed to head the National Security Council’s Western Hemisphere division. Craig was fired because of his criticism of the Trump's administration about the rocky start with Mexico.

Craig was escorted out of the Executive building where he worked in Washington.

               

According to a White House official, Mr Craig is no longer with the NSC, and will return to his previously held position at the National Defence University. 

The White House official pleaded anonymity, as the matter is not to be public, but according to current and former administration officials, his termination was linked to a speech on Wednesday the the Wilson centre, a Washington think tank.

Craig in the supposedly private speech criticised the Trump administration about his policies on Mexico, and their Latin America counterpart. Craig was frustrated as the current administration handles policies, and said that he was never consulted before the executive orders were signed. 

Craig said that Donald Trump inner circle consisting of Steve Bannon, and his son-in-law did not consult with the NSC directorates to formulates its policies.

Craig Deare is not the only one outside of the loop, staffers at the state department have also expressed their frustration about how Trump inner circles take on diplomacy, with the current state visit of the Israeli prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu.

Nobody from the state department was involved in the talks, except Jared Kushner, who had little or no diplomatic experience, and also had more responsibilities than the secretary of state, Rex Tillerson.

Craig allegedly also praised the daughter of the President, Ivanka Trump's look.

Craig Deare is the second senior official of the NSC to leave office under a week. Trump National security adviser also left his position after he was exposed to be discussing sanction with Russia, and lied about it to the Vice-president, Mike Pence.

The French far-right presidential hopeful, Marie Le Pen has quietly pledged to end same-sex marriage when elected. The policy by the presidential hopeful was quietly buried in a 144-page policy document released last week.

                    

In number 87 of the document, Le Pen document says that she will create an "improved"form of civil union in the country to "replace" the equal marriage law that is put in place by the current socialist government since 2013.

The policy specifies that the new changes "would not be retroactive", but the replacement plan would not allow new same-sex couples, which means couple would only be allowed to enter into civil partnerships. This would allow gays to enter a contractual form of civil union (PACS) from 1999 until 2013.

          

The new Marie Le Pen policy would not only affect marriage equality, the plan also outlines the restriction on fertility services, which would end assistance for gay couples wanting to have children.

Marie Le Pen is confident she would win the election after the recent shift in voters' decisions in electing leader like Donald Trump, and also the UK Brexit vote. 

Le Pen also won the first-round poll, but she will face competition centrist candidate Emmanuel Macron or Republicans right-winger Francois Fillon in the May run-off election.

The National Security adviser, Micheal Flynn has resigned from the Trump's administration. The resignation comes after reports that Flynn has been talking to the Russian ambassador after they were sanctioned, and assuring them that the sanction would be lifted during the Trump's administration.

                   

The revelation was made known by former acting attorney general Sally Yates, who had reported to the White House that Flynn was misleading about the interactions with the ambassador. 

Flynn then told the Vice-president, he had not discussed the sanction by Obama administration with the Russians, making Mike Pence go on air to defends Flynn, and also Kellyanne Conway defending him that the president had total respect for Flynn.

The resignation letter of Flynn did not say he lied to Mike Pence, instead he said he had briefed the VP of "incomplete information"

Flynn Resignation Letter

February 13, 2017

In the course of my duties as the incoming National Security Advisor, I held numerous phone calls with foreign counterparts, ministers, and ambassadors. These calls were to facilitate a smooth transition and begin to build the necessary relationships between the President, his advisors and foreign leaders. Such calls are standard practice in any transition of this magnitude.

Unfortunately, because of the fast pace of events, I inadvertently briefed the Vice President Elect and others with incomplete information regarding my phone calls with the Russian Ambassador. I have sincerely apologized to the President and the Vice President, and they have accepted my apology.

Throughout my over thirty three years of honorable military service, and my tenure as the National Security Advisor, I have always performed my duties with the utmost of integrity and honesty to those I have served, to include the President of the United States.

I am tendering my resignation, honored to have served our nation and the American people in such a distinguished way.

I am also extremely honored to have served President Trump, who in just three weeks, has reoriented American foreign policy in fundamental ways to restore America’s leadership position in the world.

As I step away once again from serving my nation in this current capacity, I wish to thank President Trump for his personal loyalty, the friendship of those who I worked with throughout the hard fought campaign, the challenging period of transition, and during the early days of his presidency.

I know with the strong leadership of President Donald J. Trump and Vice President Mike Pence and the superb team they are assembling, this team will go down in history as one of the greatest presidencies in U.S. history, and I firmly believe the American people will be well served as they all work together to help Make America Great Again.

Michael T. Flynn, LTG (Ret)

          Donald Trump reacting to the court ruling on his Travel Bannon

Justice Department lawyers argued that the President within his constituted authority can ban entry to the United States, and the courts cannot second-guess his determination, as the step the president had taken was a prevention of terrorism from entering the United States.

The court also believes that Trump ban was based on religion, citing his campaign promise to ban all Muslims. The court said that the ban had hurt businesses, institutions and universities.

The arguments from both sides was done on Telephone, and broadcasted on cable networks, social media, and newspaper websites.

The decision by the court  have led to tearful reunion at the airport after the individuals from the seven countries, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen are now given the freeway again to enter the United States.

The president, clearly not happy with the hearing from court took to Twitter and wrote, See you in court, the security of our nation is at stake!

The organizers of the event removed Milo from the venue of the event after a some unknown 150 masked agitators came around and disrupt the already peaceful protest.

The University blamed the black-clad protesters for the disruption, as they threw, rocks, commercial-grade fireworks and Molotov cocktails at the police. The protesters also broke the glass of the Student Union building, UC Berkeley, where the event was supposed to hold.

                    

                                   Milo Yiannopoulos

More than 1,500 had gathered at the venue with their different signs and chanting, "No safe space for racists" and "This is war.", but when violent protesters arrived at the scene, they tore down the barrier, damaged the construction of a new dorm and set fire new the campus bookstore. 

A woman wearing the Donald Trump hat was pepper-sprayed in the face while she was being interviewed, but she let everybody know she was Ok. At least six people were injured in the protest.

Police later issued warning to protesters and ask them to disperse from the scene. Police later issue lockdown of the campus building.

In a statement released by UC Berkeley;

We condemn in the strongest possible terms the violence and unlawful behavior that was on display and deeply regret that those tactics will now overshadow the efforts to engage in legitimate and lawful protest against the performer's presence and perspectives.

While Yiannopoulos' views, tactics and rhetoric are profoundly contrary to our own, we are bound by the Constitution, the law, our values and the campus's Principles of Community to enable free expression across the full spectrum of opinion and perspective.

After the groups were dispersed away from the building campus, some of the protesters went downtown and smashed windows at several local banks.

The editor of Breitbart, which because of him the protest erupted in the first place went to Facebook and he says;

In the news that we published yesterday, Mike had said he had gone to Iraq with his mother with some of the their relatives, but while coming, his sick mother, niece and two nephews was blocked from flying to the United States, and he was only allowed because he was a citizen, while his mother and family members only had a green card.

     

After the news was posted, according to FOX 2Imam Al-Hussainy called the station and told them that the mother of Mike had died five days earlier before the executive order was signed. The Imam said;

That's true. The 22nd of January, his mom died, She did die but that was a couple weeks ago - before the ban.

Mike had contacted the Imam on January 19th, and told him he was going to meet his very sick mother, that had kidney diseases. She died there and on January 22nd, another mosque in the Detroit area had a prayer session for her.

                     

A facebook post of Mike Hager also showed that he had posted about his mom death on Facebook, but his appearance on TV deleted the Facebook post, and won't pick up his home or work phone.

The Imam also said he had voted for Donald Trump, and approved of the travel plan, and said if that is what would make the country safer, the people should allowed him do it. 

The Imam called for peace and patience.
