The daughter of Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) was paid nearly $70,000 by her mother's campaign during the 2016 election cycle. Karen Waters has been on the payroll of her mother's campaign committee, Citizens for Waters, since 2006. She has pulled in more than $600,000 for her services since that time. Karen is in charge of endorsement mailers, known as slate mailers, for her mother's campaign. The slate mailer operation has generated hundreds of thousands of dollars for Waters' federal campaign committee in recent years. In order to appear on a Waters' slate mailer, candidates for political office must pay Citizens for Waters from their own political committees. If a candidate does not directly pay Waters' campaign committee, they must credit their own campaigns with in-kind contributions from Waters. The mailers are sent to almost 200,000 constituents in the South Central Los Angeles area, where Waters holds considerable sway.

Trump’s NATO stancecontradicts what the American defense secretary said in his hearing in Washington only a few days ago,” Steinmeier complained. European leaders and officials differ on how to approach Trump and they disagree about what might unfold as the real-estate tycoon’s administration begins. Will his Tweets and off-the-cuff remarks be translated into policy? Wait-and-see strategy Some Europeans favor a wait-and-see strategy. The characteristically guarded German Chancellor Angela Merkel, for example, limited herself to a few terse comments about the interview, and did not respond directly to Trump's assertion that her refugee policy has been a disaster. The German leader has also ignored Trump’s endorsement of Brexit and his dismissal of the EU as just a “vehicle for Germany.” "When he is in office, and at the moment that's not the case, we will work with the new American government and see what kind of agreements we can reach,” she said.

Taking the call from Flynn, Cernovich hurried out onto his back patio, shut the sliding door to the living room and paced around for several minutes out back. The Flynns, father and son, are also big on #MAGA Twitter, and have become fans of Cernovich’s work there. The elder Flynn, who like his son regularly tweets out links to fake news stories, tweeted an endorsement of Cernovich’s Gorilla Mindset book; he has also called Yiannopoulos “one of the most brave people that I’ve ever met.” Cernovich declined to comment on his relationship with the Flynns, or with almost anyone else. He said he avoids knowing the names of people he communicates with, and tries to forget their names if they tell him, in case he is ever subpoenaed. He consciously models his approach to media and politics on “fourth-generation warfare”—that is, insurgency and counterinsurgency, which includes the use of fluid, ad hoc alliances.

Let's bring in our diplomatic editor, Dominic. Going out of his way to talk that special relationship -- to say that the special relationship between the US and UK on. He's talking about his optimism about a trade deal, though it is important to point out that Michael Gove said to him, we are in the front of the line now, aren't we? And he said, you are doing great, not the complete endorsement of the idea that Britain could be at the front of the queue in terms of a trade deal with America.

News Spicing up your life might just make it last longer facebook twitter pinterest Advertisement Nutrition Fans of spicy food take note, as well as scalding your taste buds, all those tongue-tingling chillies might also be helping you live longer. After analysing data on more than 16,000 Americans over a 23-year period, researchers at the Larner College of Medicine at the University of Vermont have found that eating hot red chilli peppers was linked with a lower risk of death. The study only showed a correlation between chillies and reduced mortality, rather than proving a causal link between the two, but the results were still striking. Over the period analysed, the total mortality of those who ate chilli peppers was 21.6%, compared to 33.6% amongst those who shunned spicy food, a difference of 12%. When adjusted for other factors, the research found the difference to be 13%, a glowing endorsement of the potential power of chillies.

Mr Speaker, I very readily and with some degree of pleasure nominate Arlene Foster to be the First Minister. Now, despite that endorsement from Lord Morrow, Arlene Foster needed Martin McGuinness to also be nominated so that she could take the job and it fell to the health Minister Michele O'Neil to stand up and make Sinn Fein's case clear.

The vice president-elect also weighed in on FBI Director James Comey, who has come under fire for his handling of reported Russian cyberattacks during the presidential campaign, with Pence refusing to give the director an endorsement by the incoming administration.

LONDON: Prime Minister Theresa May won endorsement from US President-elect Donald Trump over her Brexit course but sterling plunged on Monday on fears that Britain could be on a collision course with its EU allies. Trump said Britain leaving the EU would "end up as a great thing" and promised to work for a trade deal with post-Brexit Britain "quickly and done properly", speaking in an interview with The Times newspaper. Britain's foreign minister Boris Johnson hailed the comments as he arrived at a meeting of EU foreign ministers in Brussels on Monday. "I think it is very good news that the United States wants to do a good free trade deal with us and wants to do it very fast," he said. Trump's comments did little to reassure investors, however, following reports in British media over the weekend that May is planning to announce a hard line on Brexit in a major speech on Tuesday.

The Global Times, an influential state-run tabloid, echoed the China Daily, saying Beijing would take "strong countermeasures" against Trump's attempt to "impair" the One China principle. "The Chinese mainland will be prompted to speed up Taiwan reunification and mercilessly combat those who advocate Taiwan's independence," the paper said in an editorial. It said Trump's endorsement of Taiwan was merely a ploy to further his administration's short term interests, adding: "Taiwan may be sacrificed as a result of this despicable strategy". "If you do not beat them until they are bloody and bruised, then they will not retreat," Yang Yizhou, deputy head of the All-China Federation of Taiwan Compatriots, told an academic meeting on cross-straits relations in Beijing on Saturday. Taiwan independence must "pay a cost" for every step forward taken, "we must use bloodstained facts to show them that the road is blocked," Yang said, according to a Monday report on the meeting by the official People's Daily Overseas Edition.

But Donald Trump did not say yes, he just said a bland statement about it going quite well. So don't think that was a ringing endorsement, but he did seem to welcome Brexit as a good thing, whether that translates into policy and whether he also says the same things to Prime Minister when she visits him in the White House, that is of course the really important moment in our relationship with the US.

They therefore sent out multiple copies of a two-page summary on the assumption that at least one would find its way to the press. Even if Clapper & Co. took no position concerning the dossier’s contents, they knew that preparing and distributing such a summary amounted to a tacit endorsement. They also knew, presumably, that it would provide editors with an excuse to go public. If the CIA, FBI, and National Security Agency feel that Steele’s findings are worthy of attention, then why shouldnt the average reader have an opportunity to examine them as well? How did Clapper expect Trump to respond when presented with allegations that he was vulnerable to Russian blackmail and potentially under the Kremlin’s thumb? Did he expect him to hang his head in shame, break into great racking sobs, and admit that it was all true? If so, did Clapper \then plan to place a comforting hand on Trump’s shoulder and suggest, gently but firmly, that it was time to step aside and allow a trusted insider like Mike Pence to take the reins? Based on the sturm und drang of the last few days, the answer is very possibly yes.

0.” Trump’s victory, fortified by Republican majorities in both houses of Congress, has accelerated and deepened the change, taking Cruz from the country’s leading oppositionist and putting him in the unlikely role of facilitating Trump’s Senate agenda. Cruz’s legislative priorities are “very much the president-elect’s legislative priorities,” said a senior Trump transition aide. It’s no coincidence that Cruz’s new role will also help his 2018 reelection campaign. For months, the senator’s head-turning convention speech and grudging endorsement of Trump has fueled talk that he might face an aggressive primary challenge — and even that Trump himself might encourage one. The president-elect eliminated one potential adversary when he tapped former Texas Gov. Rick Perry to lead the Department of Energy, but Cruz’s newfound desire to cooperate with the incoming administration will also go far to win over the sorts of loyal Republicans who cast primary ballots and are eager to see the Trump administration get off to a smooth start.
