U.S. will deploy 1,000 troops to Poland; Warsaw may call them 'Fort Trump'

U.S. will deploy 1,000 troops to Poland; Warsaw may call them 'Fort Trump'

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump pledged to Polish President Andrzej Duda on Wednesday that he will deploy 1,000 U.S. troops to Poland, a step sought by Warsaw to deter potential aggression from Russia.
Despite their strong show of unity, Trump disagreed with Duda’s attempt to force the retirement of some Polish Supreme Court judges, a decision last year that prompted protests. “No,” Trump said when asked if he supported the move.


Trump announced the troop deployment at a joint news conference with Duda in the White House Rose Garden shortly after the two leaders signed a joint declaration affirming defense cooperation and watched a U.S.-made F-35 fighter jet fly overhead.

Duda, who is considering naming the U.S. installation “Fort Trump,” said the new influx of troops was needed because of Moscow’s past aggression against Poland and to help solidify his country’s ties to the West.

Joe Biden Claims Were Going To Cure Cancer If Hes Elected President

Joe Biden Claims ‘We’re Going To Cure Cancer’ If He’s Elected President

https://www.huffpost.com/entry/joe-biden-cancer-cure-elected-president_n_5cfffb9de4b075510398e1d6

Former Vice President Joe Biden promised at a campaign event in Iowa on Tuesday that if he is elected president in 2020, the United States would cure cancer.

The presidential hopeful ― whose eldest son, Beau Biden, died from brain cancer in 2015 at the age of 46 ― was speaking at a campaign event in Ottumwa, one of several that he had scheduled in the state.

“I’ve worked so hard in my career that, I promise you, if I’m elected president, you’re going to see the single most important thing that changes America: We’re going to cure cancer,” he said.

Biden has long made bold claims about the fight against cancer, and he announced his “Cancer Moonshot” campaign during former President Barack Obama’s final State of the Union address.

As campaign promises go, the ambition of this one overlooks a lot of complexities of the disease — like, for example, the fact that “cancer” is actually more than 100 diseases and therefore not likely treatable with a single cure-all. In his prepared statements for another event, Biden prodded President Donald Trump over his previous comments about the disease, noting that Trump “thinks windmills cause cancer.”

Is there anything wrong with feeling on 10yo girls?

I would look at his possible motivation being his frustration at his inability to grow facial hair....

I would have thought creepy joe's break from being a perv would have lasted longer

So how long until the banks shut down that little shitbox company called Tesla?

or does someone cash heavy just buy it out? It sounds like a bad business plan when the more cars they sell, the more money they lose...

Trapped Nebraska farmer cuts off leg with pen knife

Trapped Nebraska farmer cuts off leg with pen knife

A Nebraska farmer has sawed off his own leg with a pen knife after becoming trapped in farming equipment.

Kurt "Stumpy" Kaser, 63, was moving grain from one silo to another when he was pulled into an auger - a tube with an interior shaped like a screw.

He was forced to cut off his lower leg with a 3in (7.6cm) pen knife and crawl to the nearest phone for help.

The farmer spent weeks in hospital and rehabilitation before returning home to Pender near the Iowa border on Friday.

The farmer was working alone on his 1,500-acre (607-hectare) property on 19 April when the accident occurred.

Unable to find his phone to call for help, Mr Kaser watched as the machine tore his foot off and mangled his lower leg as it pulled him further inside.

The farmer then took out his pen knife and cut off what remained of his limb below the knee.

Who will be the first dem to drop out of the race? N/T

I would create a poll but dont have a half hour to kill..

Jobs Are Booming in Trump Country, But Pay Lags

Jobs Are Booming in Trump Country, But Pay Lags
https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-05-07/trump-country-winning-on-job-growth-even-as-pay-gap-persists

Jobs are now growing at a faster rate in Trump country than they are in the Democratic-leaning urban and coastal areas that long had been a main driver of the U.S. economic expansion.

During the first 21 months of Donald Trump’s presidency, the 2,622 mostly rural and exurban counties he won in the 2016 election added jobs at twice the pace they did during the previous two years under the Obama administration and at a slightly higher rate than the 490 counties that supported Democrat Hillary Clinton.

Red America overtook Blue America last May in 12-month employment growth for the first time in seven years, according to a Brookings Institution analysis of county-level economic data for Bloomberg News.

Although Blue America still leads in pay and economic output, the uptick in Trump country is crucial to the president’s re-election chances in 2020. The White House and many down-ballot Republicans are counting on the economy to compensate for the churn of controversies in the administration and the president’s low approval ratings.

New Jobs Report Shows Record Unemployment Lows for Hispanics, Women

New Jobs Report Shows Record Unemployment Lows for Hispanics, Women

https://www.dailysignal.com/2019/05/03/new-jobs-report-shows-record-unemployment-lows-for-hispanics-women/

It’s time to celebrate: We have the lowest unemployment rate in 49 years, and wages continue to rise—especially for lower-wage workers.

On Friday, the Bureau of Labor statistics reported that in April, the economy created a whopping 263,000 jobs, and the U-3 unemployment rate—the one commonly cited—fell from 3.8% to 3.6%. The alternate measure for unemployment, the U-6, which includes those discouraged and underemployed as well, remained unchanged at 7.3%.

This is consistent with the larger pattern we’ve been seeing of the economy booming: Over the last year, our economy is averaging 213,000 jobs per month, and we now have 103 consecutive months of job creation.

At 4.2% the Hispanic unemployment rate is the lowest it has ever been, and at 3.1% the adult women unemployment rate reached its lowest since 1953.
