Heads Will Roll: 3 Anti-Trump Leakers Found In WH, Face Prosecution. At least three people inside the White House have been identified as serial leakers of classified information and are expected to be fired by President Trump before the long holiday weekend ends, according to two news organizations.
Hillary Clinton has claimed in a new interview in New York she defeated Donald Trump in last year's presidential election. Clinton, who received almost three million more votes than her reality television host opponent, was denied the presidency because she lost the electoral college count 304 to 227. She dismissed the notion the election was won because of anger, which both Trump and Bernie Sanders, her opponent in the Democratic primary, tapped into. 'I beat both of them,' Clinton said, after saying anger is not 'a good strategy for most people'.
During the presidential campaign, President Trump famously suggested going after the families of terrorists. That would be strong persuasion. The downside is that it is also a war crime. So Trump backed off on “going after the families.”
Or did he?
On his overseas trip, Trump demanded that the Palestinians stop paying the families of dead terrorists. The president is literally “going after the families” without firing a shot.
In contrast to the melting pot approach of days gone by, multiculturalism means our own culture gets incrementally erased, in accordance with cultural Marxist objectives. Steps in that direction have been taken in the Muslim colony Dearborn:
A Muslim man is suing Little Caesars for $100 million after he says he was served and then accidentally ate pepperoni made with pork, a food prohibited by Islamic law.
$100 million for putting normal pepperoni on a pizza. I wonder how much he will demand if he finds bacon in his BLT.
