POLITICS 09/07/2018 12:23 pm ET The president claimed he'd never have been elected if he spoke the way he's quoted in Bob Woodward's new book, "Fear." By David Moye Yep, this is another story about President Donald Trump tweeting something stupid, asinine or bizarre. But, trust us, this one’s worth it. On Friday morning, the president must have been stewing about the September release of Bob Woodward’s new book, Fear: Trump in the White House, judging from what he posted on Twitter. The Woodward book is a scam. I don’t talk the way I am quoted. If I did I would not have been elected President. These quotes were made up. The author uses every trick in the book to demean and belittle. I wish the people could see the real facts - and our country is doing GREAT!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 7, 2018 The idea that Trump doesn’t talk the way he’s quoted is false as anyone who has ever heard Trump speak knows. … [Read more...] about Trump Insists ‘I Don’t Talk The Way I Am Quoted.’ Twitter Users Disagree.

We have attitude surveys by the Levada Centre which is the one independent polling agency in Russia, and their findings are strikingly consistent. Every year since 2014, two thirds of the Russian population have had a positive or very positive view of Sweden. It's varied between 63 and 67 percent [the survey has not yet been published for 2018, but last year the figure was 64 percent], so remarkably stable considering that in 2014 there was [the Russian annexation of] Crimea and Sweden was very vocal about that, then in 2015 we had the refugee crisis and quite frankly Russian TV in particular is basically all government-controlled, so the picture painted of Sweden was that we were 'swamped', 'it's ruining the economy', 'the crime rate is up', 'we're on the verge of a civil war', et … [Read more...] about ‘I believe we have a lot to teach Russia in terms of free speech’
Burnell Brown can’t seem to escape the hundreds of hollow auto batteries encased in his basement. Or outside, in his retaining walls. All along the lakeshore of his White Bear Lake property. He’d noticed them decades ago. Worked close to them. Never in his wildest nightmares did the 72-year-old retired collectibles dealer believe they would essentially chain him to his home and threaten him with bankruptcy — unable to clean it up, unwilling to sell to a sucker, and unable to move. And that’s not mentioning the 61 radiation treatments and two surgeries for esophageal cancer. His family can’t help but wonder if there’s a link, after Brown’s four years of basement remodeling. The lead in those casings is a pollutant Brown believes the city knew about, even as they signed off on construction permits. City officials say they are still reviewing the details of those years-old interactions. And the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency says there’s … [Read more...] about White Bear Lake man believes old batteries robbed him of health and home
Executive vice president John Paxson mandated the move toward player development — or pingpong-ball combination enhancement — that defined the Bulls’ 7-18 record after the All-Star break.It’s the same Paxson who developed a reputation as a hothead competitor as a player, prone to tenacity and technical fouls — and the occasional NBA Finals-clinching jumper.So it shouldn’t surprise to hear Paxson’s answer when asked what the Bulls’ focus will be in 2018-19. The short answer is winning, not draft lottery pingpong balls.“We did this year what we felt was in the long-term best interests of the Bulls,” Paxson said. “It’s not a situation that any of us want to ever be in again. It goes against everything as a competitive person that you believe in. But it’s the way the system is set up.”That system will produce a top-10 pick once the May 15 draft lottery is held in Chicago. The highest odds place the Bulls … [Read more...] about John Paxson believes in Bulls’ direction
World Holocaust Remembrance Day, also known by its Hebrew name Yom HaShoah, is on Thursday and is a time meant for reflection of the events of the Holocaust, which killed millions of Jews in systematic and cruel ways. Under the direction of German Führer Adolf Hitler, the Nazis controlled large sections of Europe during World War II and operated numerous death camps. Six million Jews were methodically murdered, as well as hundreds of thousands of Roma, homosexuals, disabled people, political opponents and other victims. These people were shot, starved, gassed and tortured. Yom HaShoah typically falls on the Hebrew calendar on the 27th of the month Nisan, which this year translates to April 12. Like many Jewish holidays, the day of remembrance begins at sunset on the evening before. To remember those who were lost, here are some quotes about the Holocaust, from victims, survivors and observers of the horrors.
