As expected, Retired General John Kelly, the incoming White House Chief of Staff had Anthony Scaramucci removed from his newly appointed position as Communications Director. Last week, Scaramucci removed Sean Spicer from his position as Press Secretary and had Reince Priebus resign as Chief of Staff. Five days later Scaramucci is out at the request of the new Chief of Staff. Makes you wonder if Scaramucci regrets having Spicer and Priebus replaced now that Priebus replacement, John Kelly, caused him to be removed from his new job as Communications Director.Read more
While some criminals are murderous thugs, in the USA you’re still innocent until proven guilty. Police are not judge and juror, their only job is to protect and serve the public by enforcing the laws and arresting anyone suspected of breaking the laws. Of course not everyone is arrested for breaking a law, it depends what law was broken and the severity of the crime.

An upcoming court case against Trump will rule specifically on whether Trump can block his critics, but this Virginia court ruling sets a precedent in favor of the first amendment and Trump’s critics.Read more
After months of fighting to keep their baby alive, Charlie Gard has died. The parents of Charlie Gard announced earlier this week that they would not be able to continue the legal fight to keep their nearly one year old son alive. Following examination by US doctors recently, the parents had hope Charlie could be saved by experimental treatment that would give him a 10%-56% chance of improvement. But sadly, after the most recent MRI scan didn’t show the hope they thought they had, Charlie’s parents were left with making the decision to end their legal battle against the UK hospital and courts who felt Charlie had no hope of survival and would not have quality of life. Unfortunately, after months of stalling due to the legal fight, too much time passed to save Charlie’s life. If the hospital and courts would have given the parents a chance to save Charlie back in November 2016, Charlie may still be alive and on his way to a full recovery.Read more
