“The era of empty talk is over. It’s over,” Trump said at CPAC, testing out some potential themes of the congressional speech. “Now is the time for action.” But Trump will step onto the dais Tuesday night with historically weak approval ratings for a new president, battling leaks both from within and about the White House and a heavy chip on his shoulder about media coverage of his early presidency that he has decried repeatedly as “fake news.” Trump’s team is keenly aware that the president was lifted into office by a wave of voters disillusioned by a political system that they believe had failed them. They want to be seen as delivering for those voters — and fast. “How unacceptably jaded have we become by our politicians that people are shocked when one of them actually does what he said he would do?” Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., tweeted last week.

Autism instances have risen significantly over the last 40 years. In 1975, 1 in every 5,000 people developed the disorder, but today it's 1 in every 68 . Research continues to indicate that autism is more than just a genetic issue , but rather one closely related to environmental toxins, prescriptions drugs, and more. In fact, one of the biggest topics at hand regarding autism is how vaccinations may play a part. The appointment of Robert F. Kennedy Jr, known for his skepticism of vaccine safety, as chairman of a commission tasked with studying the effectiveness, safety, and necessity of vaccines, has been important, despite intense controversy, because of public fears that research into vaccine safety is subject to major cover-ups and conflicts of interest. Simply put, the public deserves honest information and science about the topic. With a controversial presidency already underway, President Donald Trump faces a lot of scrutiny from the American public, including his take on vaccines.

An airport spokesman referred questions on Saturday to customs and border protection officials. During his detention, Ali Jr. was asked repeatedly about his lineage and his name, as if that was a pre-programmed question that was part of a profile, Mancini said. Ali Jr. and his mother have been frequent global travelers. The family connects their treatment to President Donald Trump's efforts to restrict immigration after calling during his campaign for a ban on Muslims entering the U.S. This has never happened to them before, Mancini said. They're asked specifically about their Arabic names. Where they got their names from and whether they're Muslims. It doesn't take much to connect those dots to what Trump is doing. Camacho Ali and Ali Jr. live in Florida. They have not traveled abroad since, and are considering filing a federal lawsuit, he said.

The appeals judges appeared to accept the government's claim that the decision to require hearings could create problems for federal agencies. However, the court did not indicate that the feds were likely to prevail in the end. We do not suggest a conclusion as to the merits of the appeal. Given a sufficient showing of irreparable harm, a stay is appropriate when an appeal presents 'serious legal questions,' Judges William Canby Jr., Richard Clifton and Michelle Friedland said in a joint order. The same panel of appeals judges who granted the stay to the Trump administration in the case about immigrant kids denied the government a stay earlier this month in the much higher profile case involving President Donald Trump's travel ban executive order. A lawyer for the immigrant children, Holly Cooper, declined to comment on the 9th Circuit's action Friday.

From The American Interest : Sater has also testified under oath that he had escorted Donald Trump, Jr. and Ivanka Trump around Moscow in 2006, had met frequently with Donald over several years, and had once flown with him to Colorado. As for the man Sater stabbed in the face with the broken margarita glass in 1991? Wikipedia says Sater "stabbed the man's cheek and neck with the stem of a margarita glass, breaking his jaw, lacerating his face, and severing nerves. Sater was convicted of first degree assault in 1993 and served a year in prison." To quote Trump from his 1990 book, Surviving at the Top , "I’ve always been blessed with a kind of intuition about people that allows me to sense who the sleazy guys are, and I stay far away.”

US President Donald Trump stated that the US must work to "root out hate and prejudice and evil" at a visit to the National Museum of African American History and Culture, focusing specifically on anti-Semitism in Washington DC, Tuesday, saying that “we have to fight bigotry, intolerance and hatred in all of its very ugly forms." Trump quoted Reverend Martin Luther King Jr.’s words; “We are determined to work and fight until justice runs down like water and righteousness like a mighty stream,” before expressing his hopes for nationwide unity. The president stated that "we have a divided country, it's been divided for many, many years but we're going to bring it together, I hope every day of my presidency we will be honouring the determination and work toward a very worthy goal."

Trump said the two were only discussing details of what to say at a press conference on the missile test, but critics say they should have retreated to a secure room out of sight. So far, however, Chaffetz has rebuffed calls by Democrats for a wholesale investigation of Trump's vast business links across the globe and the potential for conflicts with his presidential actions. Even as he has retained ownership of hotels, resorts, golf courses and consumer product ventures, the new president has turned over control of the businesses to his adult sons, Eric and Donald Trump Jr. Trump International Hotel Chaffetz has asked the government's building management agency for an explanation of Trump's lease of the Old Post Office Building in Washington, just blocks from the White House, which he turned into a luxury hotel. U.S. regulations prohibit elected officials from holding leases on government property.

Martin Luther King. Jr.; and South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott. The president noted to reporters that he plans to visit the Holocaust Museum. “I will be doing it soon,” he said, when asked about a potential trip. “Very important. Very important for me.” Trump’s attempt Tuesday morning to calm the waters came after the president and his White House has alarmed many in the Jewish community and anti-discrimination groups. His long-awaited remarks come weeks after omitting the slaughtering of 6 million Jews in a Holocaust remembrance statement and days after refusing to directly condemn anti-Semitism when confronted by reporters at press conferences on back-to-back days. But it didnt appease some Democrats. “It’s not hard to see a connection between the rhetoric used by the white nationalists given a platform by President Donald Trump’s campaign and the increase in threats against the Jewish people,” House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley said in a statement.

Actor Seth Rogen found that Donald Trump Jr. follows him on Twitter and sent the president's son several messages on Thursday, including one requesting Trump Jr. ask his father "to resign before he destroys the planet." "I noticed you follow me on Twitter," Rogen wrote to President Trump's eldest son. "Please ask your dad to resign before he destroys the planet. Thanks dude."

I noticed you follow me on Twitter. Please ask your dad to resign before he destroys the planet. Thanks dude. — Seth Rogen (@Sethrogen) February 16, 2017 "Your father is trying to discredit our media, collude with Russia, and destroy the environment," Rogen said in a direct message that he posted to his Twitter timeline.
