Trump FISA tweet puts Capitol Hill in a tizzy
(CNN)US President Donald Trump sparked outrage again Thursday when he reportedly expressed frustration with people coming to the US from “shithole countries,” the latest in a series of insensitive and offensive remarks about immigrants and refugees.“House votes on controversial FISA ACT today.” This is the act that may have been used, with the help of the discredited and phony Dossier, to so badly surveil and abuse the Trump Campaign by the previous administration and others?

Given the dangerous vulnerability of Seoul, there is no viable military option. North Korea’s regime clearly believes that it is in its national interest to have a nuclear shield. Sanctions will not work. As Russian President Vladimir Putin said recently, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un would rather have his people “ eat grass” than give up nukes. Nuclear deterrence worked throughout the Cold War despite some very close calls. Mr. Kim may be reckless and erratic, but he is not a madman. He must know that a nuclear strike against a U.S. city would trigger a catastrophic response.
Although Facebook prioritizes certain posts, like those new baby and engagement announcements that quickly draw Likes and comments, there are no hard and fast rules for what a user sees first. In that vein, it’s unclear for publishers how Facebook’s rules around “meaningful” content will affect them.Facebook is starting with a small batch of test markets. Those initial cities are New Orleans, Louisiana; Olympia, Washington; Billings, Montana; Binghamton, New York; Peoria, Illinois and Little Rock, Arkansas. Users in test markets will be able to access the feature through the bottom-right menu button (the three horizontal lines) in the core Facebook app.
