Resignation for good reason
News / UK and world by Press Association July 13, 2018, 5:11 pm FacebookTwitterLinkedInWhatsAppEmail Sign up to our Daily newsletter Britain should not be “rolling out the red carpet” for Donald Trump, Jeremy Corbyn said on day two of the US president’s controversial visit. The Labour leader said Mr Trump’s “strange” backing of recently-resigned foreign secretary Boris Johnson as prime minister material was “not his business”. He also branded criticism of London Mayor Sadiq Khan over his response to a series of terrorist attacks that plagued the capital last year “completely unacceptable”. Mr Corbyn made the remarks in his first sit-down interview since the president touched down. Speaking at Islington Town Hall, the Labour leader said: “Whatever the decision the Queen decides to take about whether to invite him to tea or not and what advice the Prime Minister gives on that is between them, I … [Read more...] about UK should not be rolling red carpet out for Trump – Corbyn
By Jason Green | [email protected] | Bay Area News Group June 2, 2018 at 2:15 pm SAN MATEO COUNTY — After 25 years of uncontested sheriff’s elections, San Mateo County residents on Tuesday will get to decide between an incumbent once swept up in a prostitution sting and a challenger with only small-town leadership experience. Running for the top cop position are Carlos Bolanos, who joined the sheriff’s office in 2007 as undersheriff and was appointed sheriff two years ago when Greg Munks stepped down for medical reasons, and Mark Melville, a deputy with a decade on the force. Neither candidate sees the other as much of a choice — and each is counting on voters to concur. The way Bolanos sees it, Melville lacks the necessary experience to lead the 800-person agency that polices unincorporated parts of San Mateo County and runs its correctional facilities. Melville says Bolanos is an embarrassment to the sheriff’s office and should have … [Read more...] about Veteran lawmen square off for San Mateo County sheriff

And for good reason. Mr. Trump is enjoying a modest increase in his approval ratings this year and, as important, is attacking Democrats rather than inciting the internecine feuds that could depress Republican turnout. The economy continues to grow, as demonstrated by Friday’s unexpectedly strong jobs report, while unemployment has fallen to levels unseen since 2000. Republicans, already on the offensive thanks to a Senate map that includes 10 Democratic-held seats in states Mr. Trump won, have seen … [Read more...] about Senate Republicans Are Newly Hopeful About the Midterms.

close Video Kurtz: Trump takes heat for promoting his doctor 'MediaBuzz' host Howard Kurtz weighs in on the media frenzy surrounding Trump replacing VA Secretary David Shulkin with his doctor Navy admiral Ronny Jackson. This is how the firing of the VA secretary could have been framed: David Shulkin had gotten himself in a heap of trouble. The inspector general had spanked him for a $120,000 trip to Europe, changing a pretext so his wife’s airfare would be covered, and improperly accepting Wimbledon tickets. What’s more, Shulkin had gone to war with some of his top deputies, was increasingly isolated at the department, and the president concluded he had to make a change. Now some of that information was included in the B matter of various stories, but the main media themes are: More chaos at the White House! And how dare Donald Trump replace him with his personal doctor? Shulkin, as the New York Times noted, also generated bad publicity when he tried to … [Read more...] about VA chief’s firing portrayed as chaotic, but Trump had some good reasons
