All of us. President Lincoln, who sits here with us, I’m sure is smiling, knowing America will be saved by an honest and good man who will work for all the people, no matter their creed or color.” Trump and his family landed at Joint Base Andrews on Thursday afternoon on a Boeing 757, the president-elect’s first ride in a military aircraft. He spoke briefly inside the presidential ballroom of his new Washington hotel at what was billed as a leadership luncheon. “Where is this? This is a gorgeous room,” Trump said, lavishing praise at the beauty of the newly transformed Old Post Office that now bears his signature brand name. “A total genius must have built this place. Under budget and ahead of schedule.” The president-elect thanked attendees for their support, introduced his wife, Melania, and name-checked a number of GOP congressional leaders and his Cabinet nominees.

The full-length K70 RGB Rapidfire is also available in a tenkeyless version called the K65 RGB, which is easier to transport and slip into a bag to take to LAN parties. Like its larger sibling, the K70 has beautiful customizable RGB lighting. For too long there's been a divide between mechanical and membrane keys but now Razer has finally brought the two together with its 'Mecha-Membrane' Ornata keyboard. These new switches pull from everything Razer has learned over the years. The result is a grand typing experience with shorter keys, the tactile feel of the green switches from the Blackwidow X Chroma and a loud audible click. Just like its other products, the Ornata features a fully customizable, per-key backlight and it comes with a plush pleather wrist rest too. Billed as the fastest keyboard in the west (and the rest of the world for that matter), the Apex M800 feels different to type on than just about every other keyboard out there.

Mike Pompeo (R-Kan.), Trump’s pick to lead the CIA, both individuals with more traditional Republican views on foreign policy. Rather, it’s—still—the president-elect himself. “I was hopeful—although skeptical—but hopeful, once he was elected, he would rise to the office of the presidency; some of the things he did were merely campaign tactics, he would rise to the office and try to bring the country together,” said Mindy Finn, a longtime Republican strategist who ran for vice president as an independent alongside Evan McMullin. Instead, she went on, “he continued down the same path we saw in the campaign. I am deeply concerned about his presidency.” Still, she said she would probably watch the proceedings. Her former running mate, McMullin, is slated to speak at a conference hosted that day by the liberal-leaning Huffington Post as well as the women-focused site Bustle, an event billed as a non-partisan opportunity to “get organized.

Sterling rose on the news, but the plan has also been criticised. The BBC's Andy Moore reports. It was billed as the most important speech of her term in office. It was certainly the clearest exposition yet of what Britain wants from Brexit. Not partial membership of the European Union, associated membership of the European Union, or anything that leaves us half-in, half-out.

But if they misquote or misinterpret what I wrote, then I am most uncomfortable about it. Dimitri Alperovitch recently did an interview with the Spy Museum in Washington DC to push his case for Russian hackers and his company's expertise. They billed him as America's cyber-special-forces. At 19 minutes into the interview, he claims that Russia influenced and changed Ukraine's 2014 election results. Doesn't he know there was a coup and Petr Poroshenko was elected in the subsequent farce that followed? Poroshenko' government has been trying to get the US to invade Russia, but why confuse Dima with the facts. At 22 minutes, he claims the Russian hacks were to discredit the US elections. That much we all can agree on. At 29 minutes he reaffirms the hacking of Ukrainian artillery as the proof of Russians doing the DNC hack and at 29 minutes is the clincher.
