WASHINGTON (AP) — An 11-year-old boy in khaki shorts and a red polo shirt got the lawn-mowing gig of a lifetime Friday when President Donald Trump put him to work in the Rose Garden.
Frank Giaccio, who goes by the initials FX, was so focused on doing his job that he didn’t even notice when Trump emerged from the White House to check out his work.
FX, who lives in the Washington suburb of Falls Church, Virginia, kept right on pushing the mower in a long, straight row as Trump walked alongside him… read more
About two dozen evangelical leaders spontaneously prayed with President Trump in the Oval Office Monday during a day-long “listening session” with the Office of Public Liaison.
Johnnie Moore, a former senior vice-president at Liberty University, posted pictures of the prayer time Tuesday night on social media but emphasized that it was more than just a photo op.
“It shows a substantive relationship between the evangelical community and this administration,” he told CBN News.
Moore said faith leaders are enjoying frequent access to officials throughout the Trump administration and explained: “We enjoy an open door, not just in the Eisenhower Building, but in the West Wing.”<!–more–>
opinion: What a breath of fresh air to see our president praying unto our Lord Jesus the Christ. God heard our prayers concerning a new president and he answered by placing Trump in that position. With that position comes an enormous amount of responsibility. With that being said remember evil has not sat down and shut-up. It is being as LOUD as it can possibly be, however do you see that we are being given 4 years of a reprieve.
Joel 2:14 NLT Who knows? Perhaps he will give you a reprieve, sending you a blessing instead of this curse. Perhaps you will be able to offer grain and wine to the LORD your God as before.
What will you do during this time?
Barack Obama, whose father was Muslim, enjoyed celebrating his Iftar dinner each year.
President Trump just ended a longtime White House tradition and skipped the Ramadan celebration this year.
For the first time in two decades the White House will not celebrate an Iftar Dinner on its grounds. Allahu Akbar. The Washington Post reported:
Ramadan, which falls on the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar, started on May 27 this year and ends at sundown Saturday. Muslims around the world will mark the end of the holy month by celebrating the holiday Eid al-Fitr, the “feast of breaking of the fast.”
For the first time in nearly two decades, Ramadan has come and gone without the White House recognizing it with an iftar or Eid celebration, as had taken place each year under the Clinton, Bush and Obama administrations. In recent weeks, several former White House staff members told The Post they would usually begin planning an iftar “months in advance” and didn’t anticipate the Trump White House could pull something off before the end of Ramadan…. read more
WASHINGTON — House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, two law enforcement officers and several other people were among those shot at a Congressional baseball practice Wednesday morning in the Alexandria, Virginia neighborhood of Del Ray.
WHERE DID IT HAPPEN?
Alexandria Police were called to the 400 block of East Monroe Avenue, near Dewitt Avenue, after reports of multiple shootings. Officials said several people were injured, and victims were being transported to hospitals.
The ballfield is near a dog park, an Aldi and the YMCA on Monroe Avenue, off of busy U.S. 1. Police have shut down many of the roads surrounding the baseball diamond…. read more
In March, President Donald Trump accused the ex-“president” of wire-tapping his campaign, setting off a barrage of sanctimonious denials from Democrats and the ex “president.”
The ex-“president’s” spokesman Kevin Lewis said, “A cardinal rule of the [sic] Administration was that no White House official ever interfered with any independent investigation led by the Department of Justice. As part of that practice, neither the [sic] ‘president’ nor any White House official ever ordered surveillance on any U.S. citizen. Any suggestion otherwise is simply false.” Lewis lied.
The Obama White House had routinely ordered surveillance on U.S. citizens. This is now confirmed by a secret U.S. court’s investigation into the spying…. read more
….The report quoted Israeli sources in charge of Trump’s visit as saying that “this is Trump’s show, all the rest are extras, including Prime Minister Netanyahu … The statement that the Western Wall is territory in the West Bank was received with astonishment … Israel is convinced that this statement is contrary to President Trump’s policy, as it was expressed in his behavior and his fierce opposition to the last Security Council resolution.”
The White House later disassociated itself from the diplomat’s remarks.
“These comments, if true, were not authorized by the White House. They do not reflect the U.S. position, and certainly not the President’s position,” a White House spokesman told Haaretz.
The diplomat who made the offensive remarks about one of the holiest sites in Judaism was named in a television report Tuesday as David Berns, the political counselor at the US Consulate in Jerusalem…. read more

President Trump announced Monday that he’ll light the White House blue to honor police officers for Monday’s Peace Officer Memorial Day.
The president signed a proclamation Monday declaring the day “Peace Officer Memorial Day” and the upcoming week “Police Week.” At the signing ceremony, Trump said that he would also request that American flags fly at half-mast to memorialize fallen officers, according to a pool report.
“During Peace Officers Memorial Day and Police Week, we honor the men and women of law enforcement who have been killed or disabled in the course of serving our communities. Police officers are the thin blue line whose sacrifices protect and serve us every day, and we pledge to support them as they risk their lives to safeguard ours,” Trump said in the text of the proclamation…. read more
Before leaving office, President Obama did what many feared he would do and what the White House had implied it might do one day—instruct America’s ambassador to the United Nations to abandon Israel.
The context of the U.N. resolution was to condemn the Jewish state. U.N. resolutions condemning Israel are nothing new. In fact, of all the nations in the world including dictator states, terrorist states and states given to mass murder of its own citizens, it is the tiny democratic nation of Israel that has been condemned by the United Nations more than any other nation.
What was unique about that particular resolution was its extremity. It began by claiming that Israel had no right to Jerusalem, but it went further. It declared that Jerusalem was “Palestinian territory.” Beyond that, it alleged that Israel was an “occupying power.”… read more
