#1 ‘OBAMA KEPT THEM IN CAGES, WRAPPED THEM IN FOIL’: Trump hits back at critics with images of children in Obama-era holding centers and criticizes Nancy and Chuck for caring more for immigrants than citizens

President Trump tried to deflect criticism of his migrant family separation policy on Saturday by tweeting a link to photos showing children lying in Obama-era holding centers complete with cages and foil bed sheets.

Quoting a Drudge Report headline, Trump wrote: ''OBAMA KEPT THEM IN CAGES, WRAPPED THEM IN FOIL'' We do a much better job while at the same time maintaining a MUCH stronger Border! Mainstream Fake Media hates this story.'

The Daily Caller article linked by the news aggregation site contained numerous photos of children pictured in 2014 at Obama-era holding centers for unaccompanied young migrants in Brownsville, Texas, and Nogales, Arizona.

Trump followed up the first tweet with a barb at Democratic rivals Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, who he accused of caring more for immigrants than US citizens.

'It’s very sad that Nancy Pelosi and her sidekick, Cryin’ Chuck Schumer, want to protect illegal immigrants far more than the citizens of our country,' he tweeted. 'The United States cannot stand for this. We wants [sic] safety and security at our borders!'

#4 Student in trouble on Alaska trek finds a husky is her guardian angel

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Her mother was home in Chattanooga, Tennessee, watching on her computer screen late Wednesday night as a GPS tracker beamed a cluster of little dots showing that 21-year-old Amelia Milling could be in a cold river near Anchorage, Alaska.

“The feeling was sheer terror,” Sharon Milling recalled Saturday. “I did not know if she had fallen and broken something and couldn’t get out of the water.”

Amelia Milling was on the bank of the Eagle River, huddled in a sleeping bag as a husky that had arrived out of nowhere after Milling fell the day before insistently licked her face.

Sharon Milling learned all that a few hours later in a video call, after Amelia had hit the SOS on her satellite messenger and a helicopter crew took her to safety.

“As dramas go, it was about 2 ½ hours,” her mother said of the time she spent staring at the computer. “It wasn’t that long. It felt like an eternity.”

#5 US Navy IDs pilot killed in crash at New Mexico Air Force base

The U.S. Navy has identified the pilot who died Friday when the aircraft he was flying crashed at an Air Force base in New Mexico.

Navy Lt. Christopher Carey Short, of Canandaigua, N.Y., was piloting the A-29 Super Tucano jet when it crashed around 11:30 a.m. local time over the Red Rio Bombing Range, part of White Sands Missile Range, just 65 miles north of Holloman Air Force Base.

Short was participating in a training flight "as a part of the Air Force’s Light Attack Experiment,” U.S. military officials said.

"There's no way to describe the shock of this loss and the sadness we feel for his family," Air Force Col. Houston Cantwell, commander of Holloman's 49th Wing, said in a statement. "He did pioneering work in aviation that will help shape American air power for years to come. We're thankful to have known him and grateful for his devotion to duty."

#6 How the GOP morphed from the party of Reagan to the party of Trump

Donald Trump

After the Trump administration attacked Canada's prime minister over trade policy, dissident Sen. Jeff Flake beseeched fellow Republicans: "This is not who we are. This cannot be our party."

With similar language, other Republicans objected to President Donald Trump's hard-line policies separating children from their illegal immigrant parents. Yet before Trump backed down through executive order Wednesday, the GOP Congress had not blocked him on either front — despite worldwide condemnation layered on top of financial market turmoil over trade.

The reason is one Republicans like Flake won't find reassuring. Within the GOP, "who we are" is not "who we were."

#7 Jared Kushner Criticizes Abbas, Questioning His Ability to Make Peace

JERUSALEM — Jared Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law and top adviser on the Middle East, said the Palestinian president, Mahmoud Abbas, was afraid to make peace with Israel, bore responsibility for the deteriorating situation in Gaza and was prioritizing his own political survival at the expense of his people’s needs.

Mr. Kushner, who is on a multination trip to the Middle East, made his comments in an interview published early Sunday by the Palestinian newspaper Al-Quds. He said the Trump administration was “almost done” preparing its peace plan and would roll it out soon.

He appeared to be attempting to goad Mr. Abbas into talks the leader has vowed to boycott, while doing considerable pre-emptive damage control in the event that Mr. Abbas does not relent.

[Read the White House’s transcript of Jared Kushner’s interview.]

But Mr. Kushner offered little in the way of enticements to Mr. Abbas. Asked what the leaders of other Arab nations wanted to see in an Israel-Palestinian settlement, the White House aide mentioned nothing about a sovereign Palestinian state or of Palestinian refugees.

If anyone is interested I am Top40 online. In the real world my name is David Russell Ellenberger. I am a SWM 57 and live in Louisville, Ky. I started about 4 years ago. I wasn't exactly sure what I wanted the website to be about but I liked the idea of people voting on items in ranked lists. The voting on these ranked lists will move the items up or down in the rankings you vote by clicking the + or - buttons below or next to the item in a list, refresh the page and the item will then appear in it's new ranking. IMHO voting really is one of the most important things you can do. Your vote is literally worth millions of dollars and that's one thing the politicians want you to do but don't want you to think about in that way. In other words vote for me I'm the best and I'm for this I'm for that I am for all the things that you want and that's why should vote for me. In reality what its about is control over you and money. So next time you vote you should demand to get paid. But I digress that's voting on items is just one of the reasons I started I also wanted to get my point out to the people and hopefully other people will want to use my website to get their point out or at least create their own lists. I had hoped for this to be another social media website. That hasn't really happened and I have been online for almost 5 years now. More about that later.


Everyone thinks just put your website up and they will come but that's not really the case. Part of the problem is search engines like Google have almost complete control of the web and all the traffic on it and they want you to pay. They also don't like other social media sites or search engine type sites they are what's known in the business as viral sites or sites that mostly contain links and not much original content which is exactly what Google is. But I maintain that links are part of the branding and the way you show your links to the world is an original aspect of any website and part of the branding and is orginal content in and of itself. But Google doesn't think so, Because that's what they are and they of course want complete control and they have it and no one seems to care. I didn't care until I started this website. But again I digress.


Back to the point. Why I started this website. Well another reason was to make money you can sell things or you can put advertising on your website. You can go out and sell advertising yourself or simply sign up for advertising services that have already sold the advertising and put the ads on your website for you. Services like this from Google and it's advertising service called adsense. If you read up on the internet how to make money with a website You will eventually find Adsense and various websites will tell you you can make tens of thousands with website adverting its so easy. And that may be true just from a numbers point of view but then reality sets in. More coming in a few days. Thanks for reading....
