    They are just pictures that are out there . . . with the Hillary/Chelsea photo in the comments of the Le Pen visit to Lebanon tweet. And comments also include : "Le Pen has more balls than most other politicians" It is up to French voters to decide what it all means, just like the newly reported Russian hacking of Marcon *sigh*

    US imposes 'sweeping' Syria sanctions over 'chemical' attack The treasury department ordered a freeze on all assets in the US of 271 employees of the Syrian Scientific Studies and Research Centre (SSRC). The US believes SSRC made the nerve agent that killed more than 80 people in the rebel-held town of Khan Sheikhoun. The sanctions mean that American citizens will be forbidden from having any dealings with them. http://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-39699377

    UN Commission proved that it was the rebels in Syria that used sarin before, in 2013, btw False Flag: UN Confirmed Syrian Rebels, Not Assad, Were Using Sarin The UN report from 2013 refutes Washington’s allegations that the government of Bashar al-Assad was using chemical weapons against his own people. The history of chemical weapons usage in Syria lies solely with rebels. What the UN mission findings confirm is that the US sponsored opposition “rebels” largely composed of Al Qaeda affiliated groups, financed and supported by the Western military alliance were responsible for these 2013 chemical weapons attacks.

    The View From Khan Shaykhun: A Syrian Describes The Attack's Aftermath "Before reaching the town, just a few miles away, it became clear this was no ordinary strike. Fellow activists in Khan Shaykhun, communicating via walkie-talkie, warned them that the bombs had released chemicals. They heard the word "sarin" — a toxic nerve gas — and pulled over. "We were afraid of inhaling the smoke. We didn't want to die, to be honest," he told NPR in a conversation over the WhatsApp messaging app. They waited for about 15 minutes, until they saw the flood of victims being evacuated past them. Then they decided to venture in.

    Trump Is Said to Seek Cutting Corporate Tax Rate to 15 Percent WASHINGTON — President Trump has instructed his advisers to make cutting the corporate tax rate to 15 percent a centerpiece of his tax-cut blueprint to be unveiled this week, according to people with knowledge of his plans. The White House is planning to formally roll out its tax plan on Wednesday, ending months of speculation about the president’s intentions for rewriting the tax code. The people who described Mr. Trump’s corporate tax cut target, first reported by The Wall Street Journal on Monday, did so on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss it before an official announcement.

    "They were told their son hurt himself in the back of a Mesquite police car — so severely that the 18-year-old's injuries left him brain dead and eventually killed him. Police also told them Graham had been high on LSD and had bitten an officer while being taken into custody after officers responded to a 911 call that three men were seen in front of a middle school. Lawyers for the department explained that according to Texas law, they didn’t have to release those records. This launched the Dyers into a two-year search for a way around the system to uncover the details of their son’s final hours. They learned that the FBI will investigate citizen complaints of civil rights abuses, but the agency responded to their written request

    "Centrist Emmanuel Macron and far-right leader Marine Le Pen are set to face each other in a May 7 runoff for the French presidency after coming first and second in Sunday's first round of voting, early projections have indicated. In a race that was too close to call up to the last minute, Mr Macron, a pro-European Union ex-banker and economy minister who founded his own party only a year ago, was projected to get 24 percent. Ms Le Pen, leader of the anti-immigration and anti-EU National Front, was given 22 percent by early pollsters." Pollster Harris gave both Mr Fillon and far-left contender Jean-Luc Melenchon 20 percent, which will mean their elimination from the race.

An opinion poll released Friday shows her nearly neck-and-neck with centrist candidate Emmanuel Macron, a jump in the past week.
