Fed-Up Farmer’s Message To Trump: I Wouldn’t Vote For You If You Walked On Water . https://www.yahoo.com/news/gop-soybean-farmer-turns-on-trump-052526651.html
The former county chair for the Republican Party in Shelby County, Ohio says he’s done with President Donald Trump due to the trade war with China.
“I’m not going to vote for the president, and I’m on record as saying that,” Christopher Gibbs, who’s also a soybean farmer that backed Trump in 2016, told CNBC on Monday.
Gibbs said he doesn’t believe Trump’s claims he made a deal for China to buy up to $50 billion in U.S. agriculture given that the president made similar claims before that have never materialized, including claims of deals with Mexico and the European Union.
Indeed, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin admitted that the deal with China announced by Trump wasn’t actually a deal quite yet.
“There are still some issues that need to be worked out in wording,” Mnuchin said, per The Hill. “But I would say we have every expectation that phase one will close.”

agent orange figured out how to let lindsay save face without doing anything. https://www.cnbc.com/2019/10/15/turkish-lira-up-as-trump-tariff-threats-are-less-serious-than-expected.html
The dollar was down 1% against the lira for the session, with the Turkish currency trading at 5.8628 per dollar at 8 a.m. London time on Tuesday.
Trump has been threatening to “totally obliterate” Turkey’s fragile economy over President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s military offensive into northern Syria against U.S.-backed Kurdish forces.
“These appear to be relatively light sanctions — meant to appease Congress without sundering Trump’s relations with Erdogan,” Charlie Roberston, global chief economist at Renaissance Capital, told CNBC.
DUBAI — Turkish assets are breathing a sigh of relief after tariffs threatened by President Donald Trump over Ankara’s military offensive in Syria came up less serious than markets had expected.
Turkey’s lira rose in Tuesday morning trading on the back of a statement by Trump promising a 50% tariff on Turkish steel imports and a halt to trade negotiations between Ankara and Washington — penalties that analysts are calling “window dressing.”

Fact check: Trump says again that Americans need ID to buy groceries. They still don'thttps://www.cnn.com/2019/10/14/politics/fact-check-trump-groceries-id-voter-fraud/index.html
Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump said again on Friday that Americans need identification to buy groceries, which remains not true.
"You know, if you want to go out and buy groceries, you need identification. If you want to do almost anything you need identification. The only thing you don't need identification for is to vote, the most important single thing you're doing -- to vote," Trump said at a campaign rally in Lake Charles, Louisiana.
Trump added: "You know why? Because they cheat like hell, that's why." Voter fraud is exceedingly rare, and there is no evidence of mass cheating by Democrats.
Friday wasn't the first time that Trump claimed Americans need identification for their grocery purchases. He said the same at a Florida rally in July 2018.
The day after the Florida rally, his then-press secretary, Sarah Sanders, told reporters that Trump was referring to purchases of "beer or wine." But three months after that, Trump told the conservative Daily Caller that ID is required "if you buy, you know, a box of cereal."

At the peak of this era, there were more than 350 government-funded, and often church-run, Native American boarding schools across the US.https://www.cnbc.com/2019/10/14/trump-condemns-video-showing-him-killing-media-outlets.html
President Donald Trump “strongly condemns” a doctored video that was shown at a conference for his supporters which depicts him killing and otherwise violently assaulting media outlets, President Barack Obama, the late Sen. John McCain, Black Lives Matter and other political opponents, his spokeswoman said.
The video was shown in a conference room during a three-day conference sponsored by the Trump-backing group American Priority at Trump National Doral Miami.
White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said that while Trump had not seen the video as of Monday morning, “he will see it shortly.”

How the US stole thousands of Native American childrenhttps://www.vox.com/2019/10/14/20913408/us-stole-thousands-of-native-american-children
The long and brutal history of the US trying to “kill the Indian and save the man.”
For decades, the US took thousands of Native American children and enrolled them in off-reservation boarding schools. Students were systematically stripped of their languages, customs, and culture. And even though there were accounts of neglect, abuse, and death at these schools, they became a blueprint for how the US government could forcibly assimilate native people into white America.
At the peak of this era, there were more than 350 government-funded, and often church-run, Native American boarding schools across the US.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s bill to lower prescription drug prices would save Medicare $345 billion over 10 years, according to a preliminary analysis from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office.
The savings wouldn’t begin until 2023, assuming the bill gets passed by both the House and Senate and signed by President Donald Trump before the end of this year, the CBO said in the report released late Friday. The greatest savings would come in 2028 at $93 billion, according to the CBO, an independent agency that reviews congressional spending.

Fox News alum Carl Cameron worried Shepard Smith's exit could turn channel into 'propaganda'

Carl Cameron, a former Fox News reporter who was with the channel for more than 20 years, is voicing his concerns after Shepard Smith shocked by announcing his departure Friday.
Cameron, who says his "Campaign Carl" moniker came courtesy of Smith, appeared on CNN's "Reliable Sources" Sunday to discuss the impact his former colleague's exit may have on the channel.
"There are an awful lot of really good journalists at Fox News Channel. It's just that they're vastly outnumbered by the opinion makers, and the opinion makers are more interested in playing to people's bias than anything else," said Cameron. "And it makes it very difficult for journalists to actually give people honest facts when the air time is shrinking constantly."

Trump's Botched Attempt to Hire Gowdyhttps://www.yahoo.com/news/trumps-botched-attempt-hire-gowdy-121751878.html
Trump's Botched Attempt to Hire Gowdy

For 24 hours last week, Trey Gowdy, the former South Carolina congressman best known for leading congressional investigations of Hillary Clinton, was the new face of President Donald Trump’s outside legal defense and a symbol of a streamlined effort to respond to a fast-moving impeachment inquiry.
A day later, the arrangement fell apart, with lobbying rules prohibiting Gowdy from starting until January, possibly after the inquiry is over. Now, according to two people familiar with events, Gowdy is never expected to join the team. And Trump advisers are back to square one, searching for a different lawyer.
How a celebrated announcement quickly ended in disarray offers a rare public glimpse into the internal posturing — and undercutting of colleagues — that has been playing out in the West Wing on a daily basis since House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced a formal impeachment inquiry last month. Even as the White House confronts a deepening threat to Trump’s presidency, it has struggled to decide how to respond, and who should lead that response.

The war against ISIS was all a waste . https://www.cnn.com/2019/10/14/middleeast/isis-battle-wasted-gains-intl/index.html
(CNN)Earlier this year I spent almost two months in northeast Syria covering what we thought was the final battle against ISIS. The so-called caliphate that stretched from the outskirts of Baghdad to western Syria, that ruled over more than ten million people, had been reduced to the remote town of Baghouz on the banks of the Euphrates.
In the end the "caliphate" was little more than a sprawling expanse of rubble and mangled cars, strewn with the corpses of ISIS fighters.
But it wasn't the final battle. We were wrong.
Thousands of ISIS fighters surrendered, and many thousands more -- their widows and orphans, their wives and children -- ended up in SDF-run prisons and detention camps.

Atatiana Jefferson had moved in with her mom to take care of her. Police shot her through a bedroom window . https://www.cnn.com/2019/10/14/us/atatiana-jefferson-profile-fort-worth-woman-shot-by-police/index.html
(CNN)In her final months, Atatiana Jefferson moved to another city to take care of her ailing mother.
In her final minutes, the 28-year-old was playing video games with her nephew while his grandmother was in the hospital.
But in the seconds leading up to Jefferson's death, a Fort Worth police officer shot into her bedroom, killing her near her 8-year-old nephew.
"It's senseless," her father Marquis Jefferson told CNN affiliate KTVT. "You have to know that was somebody's daughter ... Somebody loved her, and there was a better way. It didn't have to be like that."
Outrage spread across the country as yet another black person was killed at home by a a white police officer. Just 30 miles to east, Botham Jean was killed in his apartment last year by a Dallas police officer who mistook his apartment for her own.
