Balor wasn't part of that bout, as he instead was victorious against former Bullet Club brother Karl Anderson. Prior to The Demon's clash with Anderson, he was addressed by Paul Heyman, as Lesnar's advocate made a surprise appearance. According to WWE Universe on Twitter, Heyman paid the first-ever universal champion a massive compliment: Although he was an important part of the show, Balor asked Angle to allow him to mix it up with the other Fatal 5-Way participants. The Olympic gold medalist honored Balor's request and booked a match that could have major implications for Extreme Rules. Since a Triple Threat and a Fatal 5-Way are similar aside from the number of competitors involved, Monday's bout served as a measuring stick for Joe, Wyatt and Balor in terms of gauging how prepared they are. None of the three Superstars has ever had a singles match against The Beast Incarnate, but they would all make for intriguing opponents at Great Balls of Fire.

C. at the capitol. Since the anti-war idea was something McCarthy was pushing heavily as part of his campaign, he was likely in the area during these protests and therefor, so were the Podestas. November 13th 1969 Anti-War Protest/March November 21st 1969 McCarthy types up a letter to a banker, the letter is addressed from the Senate in Washington D.C. Source John and Tony Podesta were helping him with his campaign so I’m assuming they followed McCarthy wherever he went. This I learned from the television show ‘Scandal’ where the volunteers followed the candidate around in every state to help with various activities: “In 1971, he [John Podesta] graduated from Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois , where he had served as a volunteer for the presidential candidacy of Eugene McCarthy .” “While studying at MIT in 1968, [Tony] Podesta left to work on the presidential campaign of Senator Eugene McCarthy , for whom he did field work and ran the scheduling advance operation in California and other states.

On Trump’s foreign tour, Spicer conducted only one briefing, an informal gaggle with the small, traveling press pool. Otherwise, he served more as an emcee, introducing other senior administration officials at more formal briefings. On Saturday, it was Gary Cohn, the National Economic Council director, and McMaster who headlined the U.S. news conference at the conclusion of the Group of Seven summit in Taormina, Italy. Spicer introduced them and then retired to the corner of the room to watch McMaster and Cohn parry questions from journalists. Another new detail: Trump's inspiration for a war room comes from Bill Clinton. Conversations about what some are calling a “war room” have focused on a model similar to what emerged during President Bill Clinton’s tenure to cope with the Monica Lewinsky scandal and other crises. Clinton pulled together a team of lawyers and communication and political aides to deal with those issues apart from the regular White House structure, with the aim of letting other business proceed as normally as possible.

It's easy to search for every possible excuse as to why a man who was recently involved in a lighthearted feud with Rob Gronkowski is now the most important person on SmackDown Live, but at the end of the day, he worked hard and WWE is building around him as a result. Mahal's suit-wearing, cheat-to-win bona fides make him an evolved version of the Iron Sheik, who made his imprint as one of the most memorable villain prototypes in any genre of entertainment. Sheik served as a foil for Hulk Hogan , who helped rocket WWE to mainstream relevance during the 1980s. And as pro wrestling eras have come and gone to varying degrees of success, the legendary career of John Cena harkens back to that of the cookie-cutter bona fides of Hogan. Cena, who is away filming big studio movies as his second foot moves ever so closely toward the door, is being advertised by the Talking Stick Resort Arena (h/t Wrestling Inc ) for a July 4 return to SmackDown Live.

Remembering JFK. Ron, I wanted to ask you before we go as an American who covers American politics and a Republican who has served in the White House, the building behind you, what does JFK mean to you? He means a lot to me. He means so much when you look at the Civil Rights act of 1964 and a voting rights act.

RPV away, off the stern of the USS Iowa in 1987. (credit: US Navy photo) Today is Memorial Day in the US, and we wanted to recognize the Ars readers and staff who've served by resurfacing another military memory from our resident Navy man, Sean Gallagher. Sean served aboard the USS Iowa , and here he recalls how he contributed to drone warfare with chocolate chip cookies (seriously). This piece originally ran in May 2015. Two weeks ago, I made a pilgrimage to the Port of Los Angeles to visit the ship that played a central part in setting me on the path that put me where I am today—the battleship USS Iowa . And as I walked toward the Big Stick at its new home in San Pedro, a ship's boat sitting on the pier alongside her triggered a recollection of one of the most memorable episodes in my tour aboard Iowa: a night in late September of 1987 when I left my somewhat minor mark on the history of drone warfare with a box of chocolate chip cookies.

Hezbollah’s victory also served as a source of inspiration for the Palestinians, who launched their second anti-Israel uprising, known as al-Aqsa Intifada, in the occupied territories only four months after Tel Aviv’s withdrawal from southern Lebanon. Addressing the Lebanese nation from the southern city of Hermel on Thursday, Nasrallah said when southern Lebanon was occupied by Israel, no country in the world except Iran and Syria helped end the occupation. He added that the resistance has grown strong enough not to wait for support from the rest of the world or from inside or outside the country.

Trump praised his son-in-law and the work he has done in the White House. ‘Jared is doing a great job for the country,’ he said. ‘I have total confidence in him. He is respected by virtually everyone and is working on programs that will save our country billions of dollars. In addition to that, and perhaps more importantly, he is a very good person.’ ... [I]n recent weeks, the Trump-Kushner relationship, the most stable partnership in an often unstable West Wing, is showing unmistakable signs of strain. … It has been duly noted in the White House that Mr. Trump, who feels that he has been ill served by his staff, has increasingly included Mr. Kushner when he dresses down aides and officials, a rarity earlier in his administration and during the campaign. “The most serious point of contention between the president and his son-in-law ... was a video clip this month of Mr.

"This has all been engineered to criminalize the clerics," said Novel Bamukmin, head of the FPI's Jakarta chapter. "The police need to investigate who really produced and distributed that transcript," he said. Rizieq served prison terms in 2003 and 2008 for violence and disrupting public order.

S. in ways that could prove risky. Like Clinton when faced with Trump, May has chosen to turn the contest into a referendum on her opponent, the hard-left Corbyn, whose views are far outside the British mainstream and whose party members in parliament voted 80 percent in favor of dumping him as their leader. As a top May adviser put it to me, “Any day we’re talking about May versus Corbyn, we’re winning. Anything else, and we are not.” But many days lately they have not been talking about Corbyn—or even much about the future of Britain at all. “It was going to be ‘the Brexit Election’ but it seems that other concerns were dominating,” says Steve Hilton, who served as the Conservativestop strategist in the last British general election before falling out with his close friend, May’s predecessor David Cameron, over Brexit.

" In theory, yes. But in reality, the idea soon fell apart. Price's left arm, which is valued at $217 million, started barking in late February and remains a question going into his season debut on Monday. For one, he's a 31-year-old with over 1,700 major league innings on his arm. For two, said arm had already been showing signs of decline in the form of reduced velocity and mediocre results in 2016. For three, he got lit up in both of the rehab starts he made for Triple-A Pawtucket . "There's some question, given the reviews of talent evaluators who saw him pitch Wednesday night, of whether Price is being rushed back to the mound," wrote ESPN.com's Scott Lauber . In the meantime, Porcello has reverted from an ace back to his old mid-rotation self. He has a 4.21 ERA through 11 starts, in which he's served up an MLB-high 88 hits. There is some evidence that he's been bitten by bad luck.

Over the years, Belhadj was incarcerated and turned loose back into the field after being rendered by the CIA and British security services . So naturally when it was revealed that Ramadan Abedi , the father of the purported Manchester suicide bomber was also a member of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) and was believed to have been a part of LIFG during the NATO-backed regime change operation in Libya in 2011 it only raised more questions . Here's RT discussing the matter... The UK's Metro reported the following details regarding the elder Abedi: The elder Abedi fled to Britain before returning to Libya in 2011 for the uprising that ended the Gaddafi regime, and later served in the Tripoli police department, a spokesman said. It's important to remember the chain of events following various global and terror operations.
