Kremlin-backed media turns on Trump

Kremlin backed media turn on TrumpKremlin-controlled news outlets used to root for Donald Trump’s election. Now they’re reveling in the chaos and division of his early presidency.

“Sessions Scandal: ‘U.S Headed to Constitutional Crisis,’” reads a March 3 headline on the website of the Kremlin-funded English-language network RT.

“Immigrants See American Dream Fade in Wake of Surge in Hate Crimes,” Sputnik News, another English language outlet bankrolled by the Kremlin, reported the same day.

US seventh best countryIt may be too early to expect President Donald Trump to fulfill his campaign promise of “making America great again,” but it's clear that he has his work cut out for him. A new ranking of the best countries shows America has fallen three spots to seventh place.

Park service inauguration photos show Obama's was bigger

Obama inauguration crowd larger than TrumpThe National Park Service released dozens of photos Monday from President Trump's inauguration that appear to refute the president's claim that the "dishonest media" downplayed the inaugural crowd size, which he estimated at 1.5 million people.

Donald Trump’s Worst Deal

Baku Tower - Ivanka

The President helped build a hotel in Azerbaijan that appears to be a corrupt operation engineered by oligarchs tied to Iran’s Revolutionary Guard.

Heydar Aliyev Prospekti, a broad avenue in Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan, connects the airport to the city. The road is meant to highlight Baku’s recent modernization, and it is lined with sleek new buildings. The Heydar Aliyev Center, an undulating wave of concrete and glass, was designed by Zaha Hadid.

The state oil company is housed in a twisting glass tower, and the headquarters of the state water company looks like a giant water droplet. “It’s like Potemkin,” my translator told me. “It’s only the buildings right next to the road.” Behind the gleaming structures stand decaying Soviet-era apartment blocks, with clothes hanging out of windows and wallboards exposed by fallen brickwork.

Ben Carson: ‘Slave Ships’ Held ‘Immigrants’

Ben CarsonWhile speaking with his employees on Monday, Ben Carson made a baffling claim that seemingly likened slaves to immigrants.

Calling the United States a “land of dreams and opportunity,” the newly confirmed housing and urban development secretary said, “There were other immigrants who came here in the bottom of slave ships, worked even longer, even harder for less.”

TVNL Comment:  This moron does not know the difference between those who 'came here' and those who were chained and dragged here against there will and sold at slave markets.  There was no United States when slavery began, but slavery was legal here until the end of the Civil War. No one in the hold of a slave ship ever dreamed of the glorious life his or her children would have in the hands of their new masters.
