Why the Trump Time magazine cover is so powerfult

TIME coverTen days ago, at a press conference before leaving Singapore, President Donald Trump called on Time magazine reporter Brian Bennett. "Am I on the cover again this week?" Trump asked rhetorically. "Boy, have I -- so many covers."

Trump added another Time cover this week -- although he's not likely to hang this one on the walls of any of his properties anytime soon. If you haven't seen it, here it is.
The image, taken by photographer John Moore, showing a girl crying as her mother is searched has instantly become the touchstone of the family separation crisis. That scared little girl juxtaposed against the towering Trump --- looming over her in a black suit -- is a startling image.

Charles Krauthammer, conservative voice and Pulitzer Prize winner, dies at 68

Charles Krauthammer dead at 68Charles Krauthammer, the Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist and pundit who helped shape and occasionally dissented from the conservative movement as he evolved from "Great Society" Democrat to Iraq War cheerleader to denouncer of Donald Trump, died Thursday.

He was 68.  His death was announced by two organizations that employed him, Fox News Channel and The Washington Post.


Pentagon agrees to provide housing for 20,000 detained migrant children

Pentagon offers space for 20,000 migrant childrenA defense official says the Pentagon has agreed to provide housing on military bases for up to 20,000 migrant children detained after illegally crossing the U.S.-Mexico border.

The official says the Department Health and Human Services asked for the space and the Pentagon agreed to support it. The official had knowledge of the request and spoke on condition of anonymity because the arrangement has not yet been announced.

TVNL Comment: How many children have been siezed from their parents?  Where are they now?  Why do we need space for 20,000, when only 2,000+ have been reported taken away?  Just asking...


Melania Trump: ‘No Hidden Message’ in ‘I Really Don’t Care Do U?’ Jacket

Melania jacket: I don't care do you?While boarding a flight Thursday morning for a surprise visit to immigrant child detention facilities near the U.S.-Mexico border, First Lady Melania Trump was spotted wearing a jacket emblazoned with the phrase “I DON’T REALLY CARE DO U?” on its back.

The attire inevitably garnered outrage online, especially considering the casually indifferent tone of the jacket when juxtaposed with the potentially permanent separation of young children, including toddlers, from their parents upon being detained at the border. “It’s a jacket. There was no hidden message,” Melania’s spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham said in a statement. (She is technically correct: the message wasn’t hidden; it was printed in bold white font across the entire back.)

TVNL Comment: She doesn't care.  This was a photo op.  Melania is a model.  She is a good distraction.  This was about as dumb as you can get.


Supreme Court hands states a victory in tax case that may cost consumers

SCOTUS hands states a win

The Supreme Court on Thursday ruled that states can force out-of-state retailers to collect sales tax on purchases by their residents, sweeping away decades of precedent.

The decision means states are free to collect billions of dollars in extra revenue from online retailers, at a time when many state officials complain it's difficult to balance their budgets, and that many consumers may pay more for online purchases.


Nonprofit Execs Rake in Cash From Child Detention Center Funding

Nonprofit Execs Rake in Cash From Child Detention Center FundingThe intense scrutiny this week on immigration policies that have forced the separation of undocumented families at the U.S. border with Mexico has inevitably turned to the companies operating detention facilities where thousands of children are being housed.

Some of the names are familiar to the federal incarceration business, such as the GEO Group, a leading private-prison company that has seen its fair share of federal procurement dollars, even as human-rights groups fault the company for poor medical care that has resulted in numerous detainee deaths and inmates allege violations of a federal human-trafficking law.


Bolton headed to Moscow next week to broker Trump-Putin meeting

Bolton headed to Moscow

National security adviser John Bolton will visit Moscow next week to discuss a potential meeting between President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin, the White House said on Thursday morning.

“On June 25-27, U.S. National Security Advisor John Bolton will meet with U.S. allies in London and Rome to discuss national security issues, and travel to Moscow to discuss a potential meeting between Presidents Trump and Putin,” National Security Council spokesman Garrett Marquis said in a tweet.

The White House statement comes after Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov confirmed an Interfax news agency report that Bolton is coming to Moscow. Peskov declined to comment further, the Associated Press reported.


Meet the anti-abortion Trump appointee taking care of separated kids

Anti abortion appointee to care for separated children

President Donald Trump’s zero-tolerance border enforcement policy has thrust thousands of migrant children into the care of a single health agency led by an anti-abortion crusader with little background in refugee resettlement.

The separation strategy — which Trump moved to reverse Wednesday amid growing furor — is raising fresh questions about whether HHS’ Office of Refugee Resettlement has the leadership or resources to properly care for and reunify more than 2,300 children scattered in shelters across the nation.


Trump campaign data operation had stolen Clinton emails ‘more than a month’ before WikiLeaks: bombshell report

Trump campaign stole Clinton emails before Wikileak dropThe company that ran then-candidate Donald Trump’s data operation in 2016 reportedly obtained Hillary Clinton’s stolen emails more than a month before WikiLeaks published them.

In a column for the British magazine Spectator, BBC correspondent Paul Wood revealed that Cambridge Analytica, the now-defunct company which was in charge of microtargeting voters for the Trump campaign, was in possession of Clinton’s emails at least a month before WikiLeaks was known to have them.
