    Pretty dramatic change: Republicans abandon tax cut message in Pa. special election It’s a sign they think the issue isn’t resonating — potentially a big problem in the midterms. By KEVIN ROBILLARD 03/13/2018 Republicans backed away from their signature tax-cut law in the final days of a closely watched special House election in the Pittsburgh suburbs — even though it's the very accomplishment on which they had banked their midterm election hopes.

    2 New York City Firefighters Killed in Iraq Helicopter Crash By AL BAKER and THOMAS GIBBONS-NEFFMARCH 16, 2018 Christopher J. Raguso A day after a United States military helicopter crashed during a troop transport mission in western Iraq, the grim news traveled nearly 6,000 miles west, back to New York: Two city firefighters were among the service members killed. Fire officials spent the day working to gather details of the deaths — the first of New York City firefighters serving in a war zone since Christian P. Engeldrum, 39, was killed in November 2004, when a roadside bomb detonated near his convoy outside Baghdad. In Thursday’s crash, American officials could not immediately say why the aircraft, an HH-60 Pave Hawk, went down near the city of Qaim, killing all seven service members aboard, although enemy fire was not believed to be the cause. Officials did not immediately identify the dead. But in conversations among firefighters, in military circles and on social media, it became clear that the casualties had struck hard a band of colleagues attached to the New York Air National Guard 106th Rescue Wing, which is stationed in Westhampton Beach, N.Y., on Long Island’s East End. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/03/16/nyregion/new-york-firefighters-iraq-helicopter-crash.html

    As US drone strikes with aim to defend our freedom, racial equality values are notorious for killing/maiming many innocent childrens of other countries as well, a very media image conscious POTUS would never allow any policy that could produce a very negative publicity worldwide headline like "A child named Trump killed/maimed by US freedom drone strike". These Afghan parents might be far more clever than generally assumed, they seem to have quickly figured out what drives current POTUS. They mght not be ready to build Trump Plazas in their villages yet but still they are not completely ignorant about branding value. Afghan toddler named after US President Trump Little Donald's father is a fan of the US leader's books and leadership style but Donald's grandparents are not as keen. 05:14, UK, Thursday 15 March 2018

    While there are tons of top headlines and in depth analysis in media these days about Stormy Daniel sex scandal, only saw brief reports on this if was covered at all by various outlets: U.S. Military Helicopter Crashes in Iraq-Syria Border, Pentagon Confirms By Tom O'Connor On 3/15/18 Updated | A U.S. military helicopter has crashed in western Iraq, killing all seven personnel on board. The Defense Department confirmed to Newsweek on Thursday that an "incident" occurred involving one of its helicopters in Iraq, as reports emerged that an HH-60 Pave Hawk helicopter crashed in the Al-Qaim region near the country's border with Syria. As more information surfaced in ABC News and CNN reports that identified the aircraft and potential fatalaties, the U.S. coalition elaborated. "All personnel aboard were killed in the crash," Brigadier General Jonathan P. Braga, director of operations for the coalition said in the statement. "This tragedy reminds us of the risks our men and women face every day in service of our nations. We are thinking of the loved ones of these service members today."

    While many top media headlines are about Stormy Daniel sex scandal, don't recall news like this making top headline in recent weeks/months in US media owners programming: Civilian Casualties Soared in Iraq and Syria in 2017. Was Trump’s Bloodthirsty Rhetoric to Blame? After three years of brutal fighting, the U.S.-led war against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria is winding down, the U.S. military announced on Thursday, saying the coalition has “liberated” more than 98 percent of the area formerly controlled by ISIS, or Daesh, freeing “7.7 million Iraqis and Syrians once held under brutal Daesh rule.” By all accounts, this victory has come at a huge cost to civilians, but how huge depends on who you ask. The U.S.-led coalition says it conducted 29,070 strikes between August 2014 and January 2018, killing “at least 841civilians.” But that figure is much lower than independent estimates, raising questions about the conduct of the war and its disproportionate impact on Iraqi and Syrian civilians. According to reporting by the nonpartisan monitoring group Airwars, between 6,136 and 9,315 civilians have died in coalition strikes since 2014, with death tolls spiking sharply in 2017. A recent New York Times investigation on airstrikes in Iraq also found drastic underreporting of civilian casualties in official statistics, with thousands of civilian casualties undocumented by official figures.

    Agree, it can not continue without a major correction. What it proves? In and of itself, not much. Its the overall trend of many stores from many different companies that needs to be observed. Im sure a lot of the stuff sold in Toys R Us is not made in the US. If the Tariff Trends continue, this could be bad for those overseas manufacturers, which could be good for us. Not sure on that either. Thing is, thats 33,000 jobs (according to the article) which is a good chunk of "new jobs created every month" that now have to be "created" to handle the people that lost their jobs. Not that they were great jobs to begin with, but they were jobs. That, in and of itself is something that the country can handle. But like I said, its the overall trend to watch, not just one chain. Lose 10 chain stores like Toys R Us, roughly equal in size, and thats 330,000 jobs that go bye bye. That is more jobs than the US "creates" every month. A major economic downturn wont hit only one chain, or a limited number of chains. It will hit EVERY business in the US. Again, watch the Trend. A severe major economic downturn or correction will hit hundreds and even thousands of businesses, and tens of thousands of individual stores. If we dont want to look at Toys R Us as the small sample, but bigger picture, try watching this related thread: The retail apocalypse has officially descended on America http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread.php?508915-The-retail-apocalypse-has-officially-descended-on-America

    Wow, in that case a major apology from WaPo, NBC and all MSM outlets publishing this report is warranted. This would also disprove controversial narratives emerging of late that current leader in chief was a puppet of zionist lobbies with deep pockets. Maybe these lobbies are not as powerful as sometimes claimed by critics. On related note, if zionist lobbies can't get General McMaster pushed out, it means they can't touch General John Kelly either and rumors about his exit are also fakenews?

    Not sure. If all the tariffs that Trump is putting down causes these things to be made over here again, it could be a good thing. Honestly what worries me more than anything else is a flat out repeat of 2008 where its our jobs that are going away, and really still havent come back. Im sure Zippy will be in shortly to say otherwise as he always does. Overall, this does make me think there is a possibility that another economic downturn is right around the corner. One thing is for sure, if the economy does have a major downturn again (as happens every 7 years and we are overdue for our next), they will try to pin the entire thing on Trump. Not that I actually trust him to not have his own agenda either...
