Sometime, people will get the sense that others are trying to have them killed off, all while making them pay someone else more "connected" than you for the privilege of doing so:

U.S. TREASURY SECRETARY SAYS LOOKING AT U.S. SANCTIONS ON TURKISH PURCHASE OF S-400S FROM RUSSIA BUT NO DECISION YET

This is an appropriate response to Erdogan demanding more foreign aid.

MM, thanks for the article. I don't think an 80% agreement is enough at his point. It's capitulation on every thing, or no deal.

Melinda, that's really stupid. I don't think I need to tell you that, but gas heating and cooking is more efficient than electric heating and cooking.

Due to electric transmission loss, gas burned at a power plant is less effective than gas burned at the end source.

Great news that an activist investor is now involved with AT&T. As the owner of VERY LOW RATINGS @CNN
, perhaps they will now put a stop to all of the Fake News emanating from its non-credible “anchors.” Also, I hear that, because of its bad ratings, it is losing a fortune.....

..But most importantly, @CNN
is bad for the USA. Their International Division spews bad information & Fake News all over the globe. This is why foreign leaders are always asking me, “Why does the Media hate the U.S. sooo much?” It is a fraudulent shame, & all comes from the top!

As bad as @CNN
is, Comcast MSNBC is worse. Their ratings are also way down because they have lost all credibility. I believe their stories about me are not 93% negative, but actually 100% negative. They are incapable of saying anything positive, despite all of the great things...

..that this Administration has done. They don’t talk about the great economy, the big tax and regulation cuts, the rebuilding of the Military, “Choice” at our VA, our Vets, Judges and Supreme Court Justices, the Border Wall going up, lowest crime numbers, 2nd A, and so much more!

The Trump Administrations has achieved more in the first 2 1/2 years of its existence than perhaps any administration in the history of our Country. We get ZERO media credit for what we have done, and are doing, but the people know, and that’s all that is important!

Still waiting for the punchline.

Jim Eagle

Cathyf,

The Turnberry Golf Club, which is in The Open rota, is a Trump-owned resort hotel. Supposedly, a US Air Force aircraft landed near there and the crew is being put up at the Trump hotel.....more emolument ammunition for the Nadler's of the world.

MissMarple2

Turnberry:

It was discovered that Air Force planes were stopping to refuel at the airport near Turnberry (which I believe is Gatwick but I am not positive) and then staying at Turnberry.

They have been doing this for years, as the airport is less busy than places like Edinburgh or Glasgow.

The press discovered this, and made it seem like Trump was ORDERING them to go there and stay at his hotel. EMOLUMENTS! The scandal of the day.

Perhaps it will turn out that as a patriotic duty he was comping the servicemen at the hotel, and the government wasn't being charged anything. I would laugh myself silly if that were the case!

matt - deplore me if you must

The airport near Turnberry is Prestwick. I thought so. I had a customer many years ago just car the airport.

I think I may had a very odd stopover at Prestwick many years ago. I was taking Laker Airways out of Manchester and I think we stopped at prestwick to pick up more passengers. Tinly little terminal at the time.

USAF has used Prestwick for many years. I think we may have also run sub hunters out of there at one point.

Someone else is going to have to keep track of President Trump's tweets this afternoon.

I have to go down to see a Prudential insurance agent because I discovered a small insurance policy which I didn't realize I had and on which my ex-husband is still listed as the beneficiary. I have to go to his office to change it. Then I am meeting a friend for a late lunch.

Your word of the day is "prorogue".

Boris Johnson will prorogue Parliament at the close of play today as he confirmed he would not request a delay to Article 50.

The Prime Minister had met the Queen at Balmoral in August and asked Her Majesty to suspend Parliament, seeking "an end to the current parliamentary session in the second sitting week in September". A new session of Parliament will begin with a Queen's Speech on October 14.

The Prime Minister's official spokesman reiterated that Mr. Johnson would not "seek an extension" to Article 50.

"If MPs want to resolve this there is an easy way - vote for an election today and let the public decide," he said.

The suspension means there will be no election until the end of November...

Melinda

cathyf-

The punchline dropped!!

Looks like the reason the Air Force lands & refuels at Turnberry is from a 3yr deal the iBama signed in October, 2016.

Looks like another one of those "Chicago Coincidences" that would've propped up the "Emoluments!!11!" argument, but instead looks suspiciously timed, all the way around.

I hate it when that happens....

We have used Prestwick since WW2. Just like Gander. Not a base or field but rather a refueling and layover. I flew in several times during my reserve time. Didn’t get the 5 star reatment like ANG crew got at Turnberry just a small hotel in Glasgow.
