Trump questions why migrants wave home country flags if they want asylum in US
When constructing a Trojan Horse one does not place an "Enemy Hiding Here" sign on the hidden door!

Fact-checking the NY Times’ Fact-checking
Fire mixed with Trump has addled the minds of the NYT Democratic Party PR staff. Dude, we know, Orange Man Bad! We get it!
But reality intrudes. The destruction to homes and businesses these fires cause is less due to forestry management and more due to local and state zoning, and building regulations. Yes, it is bad forest management practices which create the forest fire problems, but those living in the wildland-urban interface are hamstrung by codes and regulations which do not allow them to reduce the fire risk on and around their properties. Often this it is even worse than that since the local governments have regulations which penalize individuals when they mitigate fire risk on their property.
We already know what works to protect communities from firestorms, but we do not implement these policies.
Shelter in Place Works! The Real Answer to Fire
"This morning’s post on fire mentioned “shelter in place,” in which homes are made sufficiently firewise that people can safely remain in the homes during a firestorm. Five neighborhoods in the San Diego area were approved as shelter-in-place communities. The fires touched those neighborhoods, but not a single home was scorched.
Despite this success, some people still question the practice, partly for liability reasons. Considering the chaos that often accompanies mass evacuations, I think shelter in place is very sensible. The next step is shelter and defend, in which able-bodied residents are given a bit of training to allow them to put out spot fires after the main firestorm has passed through their community."
This article shows the problems facing those who want to promote Shelter-in-place standards.
CBS News Doesn’t Get It
These articles were written in 2007, eleven years ago. Even so, buildings, homes, and people in progressive states like California are still being lost to fires which cross from the forest to the wildland-urban interface and burn entire cities. Perhaps it is time to criminalize this political malfeasance?
The problem is less where people choose to live and more whether they are allowed to appropriately use shelter-in-place techniques to protect their homes, property, businesses, and lives.
The politicians in California have much to answer for.
The NY Times underwhelms with its nonsensical hooting.
She is a corrupt machine politician, answering questions will be difficult if she wishes to stay out of prison!

De Blasio passes the buck on city’s snowstorm chaos
"Facing a blizzard of criticism, Mayor Bill de Blasio admitted Friday that he knew Thursday morning the city would be blanketed with up to 5 inches of snow — but still pointed the finger everywhere except at City Hall for the chaotic evening commute.
Responding to an angry “George in the Bronx” on WNYC’s “Brian Lehrer Show,” who was stuck in the snow for four hours on Gun Hill Road, Hizzoner offered a lengthy reply that stopped short of a mea culpa."
The incompetent cannot accept their incompetence if they do they will spend the rest of their lives apologizing for their endless failures. De Blasio has been a disaster for New York. A disaster New Yorkers were determined to bring upon themselves.
EU, Iran Push for Non-Dollar Trade, Defy US Sanctions
And If the EU thinks Trump will not hammer them with tariffs over this, they are crazy. The only remaining engine in the EU economy is Germany, an export economy. If Germany cannot export, the entire EU will face depression, not just the southern EU nations!

... if I might make a suggestion, a tent with old tube TV monitors located at Atlantic St SE/4th St SE would be the optimum relocation site. Let the Press Secretary hold the conference from the White House but only allow the press to watch via the monitors and ask questions via written interrogatory. There should be no outbound link at the Atlantic and 4th location. No security should be provided by the federal government.
Come one, come all, to the new press pool conference location.
Then publish the feed via YouTube, Facebook, Presidential Blog, and other alternative media.
Hold press conferences randomly, and with little notice.
