@blatham,
What is shocking or significant about it?

I was not even aware that Mr. Trump had denied it in the past -- although perhaps I should not trust the veracity of a CNN headline writer.

Who even cares whether or not Mr. Trump sent Mr. Giuliani to Ukraine?

He's been up to his usual tricks.

An artwork that appeared on the side of a house in Bristol has been confirmed as the work of street artist Banksy.

The piece features a stencil of a girl firing red flowers made with spray-painted ivy from a catapult.

Banksy published a picture of the work on his Instagram page at midnight on Valentine's Day.

Kelly Woodruff, whose father owns the property in Barton Hill, said they now wanted to protect the "special" work from the approaching Storm Dennis.

"As it's Valentine's Day, it's really special and to have it in 3D with the flowers is incredible," said 37-year-old Ms Woodruff.

"There's so many people coming and enjoying it, taking pictures, it's fantastic.

"There's been a lot of debate if it is a Banksy or not. Most people I've spoken to think it 100% is, and they're naming it the Valentine's Banksy.

"It's incredible and beautiful."

Flowers placed on the road sign as part of the artwork had already been stolen, said Ms Woodruff, and the protective plastic screen they placed over it on Thursday evening had been vandalised.

Ms Woodruff said her family had contacted Bristol City Council's street maintenance department.

The council said it has recommended the family get in touch with the International Fine Art Conservation Studios (IFACS) in Bristol for advice.

The Bristol Somali Community Association, based in Barton Hill, tweeted about the artwork after it was spotted.

Co-founder Saed Ali wrote: "We hope it's Banksy's work.

"Come and have a look yourself. Whoever painted, it's worth admiring their creativity."

The Morning Briefing: Media Is Complicit in Leftist Violence Against Trump Supporters

Quote:
Leftists have been rationalizing violence for a very long time, long before Donald Trump ascended to the presidency. The unhinged cancer has metastasized these past three years, and will not be going into remission anytime soon.

The media’s role in letting the leftist violence get out of hand cannot be understated. There are both errors of commission and errors of omission.

Errors of commission happen when they do things like lie and insist that Antifa is a reasonable “anti-fascist” group of peaceful protesters.

Errors of omission occur when virtually no one in the mainstream media can work up any outrage for acts of physical violence committed against Trump supporters. The stories get a few minutes of daylight, then it’s off to the memory hole.

By contrast, these very same people refer to every verbal dig against reporters as “attacks” that are endangering their lives.

The media are enabling the riotous, violent behavior of the anti-Trump people. They keep the denigration of the president at a fever pitch and, when it spills over and manifests as violent behavior, turn a mostly blind eye.

It is so obvious and so sad that the lack of honesty is lauded by some as journalism.

Voting the post above down is a vote for violence. Interesting to see where some people are coming from.

Leftist thuggery: Political violence accelerates against Trump supporters

More examples of violence against Trump supporters. How can Trump be called a fascist when tactics are used by his political rivals supporters? He can't. Who here has the guts to admit it? Not going to hold my breath but this is the side so many are taking. They are ignoring violence and condoning it by their silence.

Quote:

EUREKA, Calif. — A man arrested on a slew of charges, including attempted arson of the Republican Party of Humboldt headquarters, is back out on the street after spending only a day in jail before posting bail.

On Saturday Feb. 8, at about 4:53 a.m., officers with the Eureka Police Department responded to the office on 5th Street for the report of a man smashing the windows. The witness gave a description of the suspect and said he was last seen riding a bicycle toward the bay.

Meanwhile, two weeks ago, another Sanders supporter rammed through checkpoints to barrel through to President Trump's Mar a Lago estate, using her car as a weapon:

[Hana] Roemhild's act represented some kind of derangement at work, possibly drug derangement, but also Trump derangement. Her still-open Facebook page is loaded with pictures of pink pussy hats, "not my president" drivel, anti-Trump caricatures, and the pro-Bernie posts.

These are factual incidents not manufactured propaganda.

@izzythepush,
Wow! Thank you very much. It's beautiful. Perhaps, for the betterment of my own soul, I ought to get out of all this political bullshit and take up street art.

You can do both. In Southampton we've got a street artist called Slave Nation.

On a more whimsical level we've got Will Rosie who puts his mosaics up around the city.

White House Memo Justifying Suleimani Strike Cites No Imminent Threat

Quote:
A new report sent to Congress about the drone strike that killed Iran’s top general contradicted the original justification the administration provided.

WASHINGTON — The White House told Congress on Friday that President Trump authorized the strike last month that killed Iran’s most important general to respond to attacks that had already taken place and deter future ones, contradicting the president’s claim that he acted in response to an imminent threat.

In a legally mandated, two-page unclassified memo to lawmakers, the White House asserted that the strike that killed Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani was “in response to an escalating series of attacks in preceding months” by Iran and Iran-backed militias.

“The purposes of this action were to protect United States personnel, to deter Iran from conducting or supporting further attacks against United States forces and interests, to degrade Iran’s and Quds Force-backed militias’s ability to conduct attacks, and to end Iran’s strategic escalation of attacks,” said the report, which was transmitted on Friday to the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

The document confirmed what lawmakers had privately suspected as the Trump administration has offered a shifting set of justifications for the strike against General Suleimani in Baghdad — taken with no congressional consultation — which brought the United States and Iran to the brink of war.

He certainly is and with a few others. I guess Walter thinks if terrorists take a few days off there is no reason to kill them. I think Walter is wrong. Terrorists count on people that think that way.

He seems like the perfect guy to head up the Presidential Personnel Office which is in charge of all vetting and hiring for the WH
Quote:
McEntee’s name may sound familiar to hard-core White House–personnel watchers. He was fired back in May 2018 and suddenly escorted from the White House at the order of then–chief of staff John Kelly, after a federal investigation revealed that McEntee had committed “serious financial crimes.” The Wall Street Journal reported at the time that he had a serious gambling problem and issues with his taxes. McEntee had also been working without a permanent security clearance because he was unable to pass a background check. But those small blemishes on his record were hardly enough for the Trump administration to stay away. Less than a day later, the Trump 2020 campaign hired him as a senior adviser for campaign operations.

Your article says his job is with the campaign not hiring for the WH. Why are you lying besides it being what you do?

@coldjoint,
If you took a moment to research the matter, you'd soon realize that McEntee is scheduled for a return and to head up White House Personnel.
