Millions Await The Release Of Samsung S8


Samsung has launched the Galaxy S8 and it might be the most beautiful smartphone ever made. It appears to be something a hyper-intelligent alien race accidentally dropped and we now get to study it. But under the microscope you’ll find it is clearly and frustratingly human, its perfection marred by series of bizarre and occasionally facepalm-worthy flaws.

Diane Sawyer 20/20 Interview With Caitlyn Jenner


There is “peace” in Caitlyn Jenner’s soul.

That’s the message she had for Diane Sawyer ― and the millions of people who tuned in for her second in-depth interview on ABC’s “20/20” to celebrate the anniversary of coming out as transgender in April 2015.

“I’ve grown into Caitlyn,” she told Sawyer on Friday night. “It’s tough to take 65 years of being Bruce and being male, and then like, overnight, everything changes. At first you don’t know how to handle it.”

But now? “All of that confusion has left me,” she said.

The interview, which comes just days before Jenner is set to release her highly anticipated memoir, The Secrets Of My Life, touched on a wide range of issues, from her transition to politics to her feelings about being a representative for the transgender community.

Surgeon General Murthy Replaced By President Trump


U.S. Surgeon General Vivek H. Murthy has been removed by the Trump administration and replaced temporarily by his deputy, Rear Adm. Sylvia Trent-Adams.

Murthy, a holdover from the Obama administration, was asked to resign, according to a statement released Friday night by the Department of Health and Human Services. The statement said that “after assisting in a smooth transition into the new Trump administration,” Murthy “has been relieved of his duties.” Trent-Adams, a 24-year veteran of the Public Health Service Commissioned Corps and a former chief nurse officer of the Public Health Service, will fill the role for now, the statement said.

In a post on Facebook, Murthy wrote that “for the grandson of a poor farmer from India to be asked by the President to look out for the health of an entire nation was a humbling and uniquely American story. I will always be grateful to our country for welcoming my immigrant family nearly 40 years ago and giving me this opportunity to serve.” His dismissal came on the eve of the March for Science, which drew thousands of demonstrators to the National Mall.

President Trump To Speak At NRA Meeting


President Donald Trump will be the first President to speak at the NRA Annual Meetings since Ronald Reagan did it in 1983.

He will speak to the NRA’s 2017 Leadership Forum in Atlanta on April 28.

Breitbart News reported that the NRA endorsed Trump on May 20, 2016, during the 2016 Annual Meetings in Louisville, Kentucky. Thereafter, the NRA campaigned for Trump, and Trump reminded voters again and again that he would work with the NRA to save the Second Amendment if elected.

Trump will now return to speak to the gun rights group that cheered him to victory last year. Bloomberg reports that this will make him “the first U.S. president to address the gun-rights group since Ronald Reagan in 1983.”

Isaiah Thomas' Sister Killed In Car Crash


Chyna Thomas, the 22-year-old sister of Celtics All-Star Isaiah Thomas, died in a one-car collision early Saturday in Thomas’s home state of Washington.

Chyna Thomas had been driving a 1998 Toyota Camry at 5am on southbound Interstate 5 with no apparent sign of trouble when the car began to drift onto the left shoulder, State Patrol spokesman Trooper Nick King told The News Tribune.

World's Oldest Person (117) Died Today


Emma Morano, at 117 the world’s oldest person who is also believed to have been the last surviving person born in the 1800s, died Saturday at her home in northern Italy, her physician said.

Dr. Carlo Bava told The Associated Press by phone that Morano’s caretaker had called him to say she had stopped breathing in the afternoon while sitting in an armchair at her home in Verbania, a town on Italy’s Lake Maggiore.

Bava said he had last seen his patient on Friday when “she thanked me and held my hand,” as she did every time he called on her. While Morano had been increasingly spending more time sleeping and less time speaking in recent weeks, she had eaten her daily raw egg and biscuits that day, he said.

The launch came near the city of Sinpo and one day after one of the biggest North Korean propaganda events of the year – celebrations of the 105th birthday of late North Korea found Kim Il Sunday.

“U.S. Pacific Command is fully committed to working closely with our allies in the Republic of Korea and in Japan to maintain security,” U.S. Pacific Command Cdr. Dave Benham said in a statement.

A U.S. official told Fox News that President Trump was notified of the failed launch.

Vice President Pence was also briefed on the launch and has been in contact with Trump. Pence is en route to Seoul, South Korea to kick off his Asian tour.

The missile failure comes a day after North Korea paraded its intercontinental ballistic missiles in a massive military display in central Pyongyang.

While Dr. Brantly is certainly not totally out of the woods yet, he is definitely on his way and that's great news for everyone.

Time To End ISIS Terror For Good

#hutchreport #terror #isis


Like many of you, I believe President Obama does not like military conflict and will almost certainly go out of his way to avoid it, if possible. However, there are times when U.S. military force should be used and that time is now when it comes to getting rid of ISIS. There is no way to reason with them and no way they can be rehabilitate, either. They must be killed or they will most certainly bring their murderous ideology to the United States of America.

If You Can't Beat Him, File A Lawsuit



You probably have heard by now that Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives John Boehner plans to file a lawsuit against President Barack Obama alleging he has not faithfully executed laws that were passed by Congress. Some people may think this move brilliant, but I think it's really stupid. Even if the Speaker is successful at bringing and winning a lawsuit against a sitting President of the United States, who would decide, if he really was enforcing the laws correctly and what judge would have the power to sanction him? This lawsuit is, plain and simple, a political stunt designed to drum up conservative votes in November. What a waste of a court's time and taxpayer money. If the Congress is serious about stopping illegal activity by President Obama, then they should impeach him.

IRS Broke The Law, Now What?



An archivist testifying before Congress this week said under oath that 'the IRS broke the law' when it did not notify his agency about computer crashes that allegedly destroyed emails. This whole IRS mess is really beginning to stink to high heaven and sadly most Americans and the mainstream media could care less. Many pundits on Fox News Channel and conservative talk radio do not understand why this story is being ignored. Could it be that most Americans and members of the media view this IRS story as purely a political witch hunt? Might be. However, what is at the root of the problem here is very serious and I believe a special prosecutor should be appointed to investigate this whole targeting issue. Another thing that is making many Americans choose to not be outraged by this story is the fact most folks do not think PACS should get tax exempt status in the first place. I have no problem with conservatives, liberals or any other group trying to persuade the American people to their way of thinking, but they should not be allowed to avoid taxes in the process. While Republicans continue to beat a dead horse with this IRS mess, the real story that most Americans are outraged about - the VA hospital scandal - is not getting the deserved coverage it should.

Watched World War Z On NetFlix



A few nights ago, I was excited to see that NetFlix had added a movie called 'World War Z' to it's lineup. I'm not a big fan of Zombie movies, but I decided to give it a look see since I have enjoyed watching Brad Pitt movies in the past. Well, I got about 15-minutes into the movie before I completely lost interest. I know many of you probably loved 'World War Z', but to me it seemed like a modern day version of 'Dawn of the Dead' from several decades ago. I know it's not fair to watch 15 to 20 minutes of a movie and make a snap judgement, so I will likely try to find the right time and mood to pick up where I left off. I sure do like that feature on NetFlix where you can stop watching a movie and even months later when you want to watch it again, the computer remembers exactly where you were when you stopped watching. I haven't looked yet to see if 'World War Z' made enough money to pay for it's likely high budget, but it wouldn't surprise me - if investors in the film did not have a huge payday.

Will Anything Really Change If GOP Takes Over Congress?



It appears that Republicans are poised to take over control of both the House of Representatives and the Senate in November when nationwide elections are held. This is a likelihood simply because President Barack Obama has lost favor with the American people and like other leaders before him, appears to have lost touch with the average citizen. The United States has been a two party nation since I was born back in the 1950's and even though many people and groups have tried to change that - nothing close to a successful third party has ever emerged. While there are sharp differences between Republicans and Democrats, for the most part they are interchangeable. The founding fathers were pretty wise when they wrote the U.S. Constitution, because they made it extremely difficult for one man or political party to become too powerful. The only real chance that real change will be coming our way after the November congressional elections would revolve around how many Libertarian Republicans are elected to office. Where things stand right now, I believe there is a growing number of voters who would consider voting for a Libertarian candidate - if that person is not too far out of the mainstream. There is an ever growing number of Republicans and Democrats who are looking for new ideas and it appears that they might start migrating to Libertarian ideas - if the right candidate(s) come along.

VA Hospital Scandal Making Obama Look Really Bad



What is happening right now at the VA is nothing less than a full fledge scandal and President Barack Obama is the one person taking most of the blame. There have been problems at the VA for decades, but recent issues where thousands of retired members of the military were turned away from even getting an appointment makes this an all time new low. To the President's credit, he does appear to be concerned with what is happening at the VA. However, will that concern turn into real action that can been seen and felt by our brave retired soldiers? I really do believe President Obama has a good heart, but I also believe he is completely helpless when it comes to getting anything in the U.S. government running at an acceptable pace. It really worries me that in 10-years or so, all hospitals in the United States will be run the same way those at the VA are run in 2014. Honestly, if President Obama was not such a well liked leader – this issue might have lead to his removal from office already. There are so many problems with government control over anything and it's really sad that billions of dollars per year are being spent on everything - except funding the medical care all American service men and women have been promise, because of their service, by our government.

With Obama Falling Part, GOP Self-Destruction Can't Be Far Away



It's pretty clear to reasonable folks, that the Obama administration is completely falling apart right now. I've watched politics for decades and each time it appears that a President is in terrible shape with the American public, the other party somehow finds a way to get over confident and self-destruct. If you ask any political expert they will tell you that the GOP should clean house on Election Day, when November rolls around. When it comes to President Obama, his self-destruction was a long time coming, but once it got started – it moved at a rapid pace. Republicans have a definite pattern of self-destructing around social issues and ones involving women. President Obama can't seem to make a good decision about foreign policy or the military. Both Republicans and Democrats self-destruct politically, because they each are so dominated by extremist from both sides of the political spectrum. This November, the GOP should totally dominate congressional elections, but I doubt if they will. There is a bunch of time between now and November and with President Obama messing up so much at the present time, overconfidence will lead a few in the Republican Party to find some seemingly impossible way to shoot themselves in the foot - right before the American people vote.

Major Heart Problems Diagnosed In Hillary Clinton?



The website 'Drudge Report' has published an exclusive story this morning providing excerpts from a new book written by Edward Klein called 'Blood Feud'. In these book passages released by Drudge, it is speculated that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is in poor health. In fact, she suffers from heart problems and even has a tendency to form blood clots according to the book. According to the author of 'Blood Feud', Hillary was so ill at one point when serving as Secretary of State – she collapsed in her office at the State Department. At her own insistence, she was not taken to a hospital to be checked out. However, later when former President Bill Clinton returned home and saw how serious her condition was – he convinced her to go to a New York hospital to be checked out. It's important to keep in mind that book authors usually have an agenda when they write books about current and former politicians – so I would wait until more of the media has a chance to check out these alleged medical problems, before believing they are absolute truth.

America's Got Talent AGT On Sunday Night



In about an hour, one of my favorite TV shows, America's Got Talent, will be shown on NBC. When Howard Stern first joined the show, I admit to being reluctant as to whether or not he would be a plus or a minus. After a couple of years, I definitely believe he has added to the show – especially since he replaced Piers Morgan who I thought was terrible. Each year, AGT searches the United States looking for people who have talents that might otherwise not be discovered. My favorite year of AGT was the one when Kevin Skinner won the title, even though his career went nowhere after winning such a notable award. There have also been some contestants who were treated very bad by the judges, who I thought were very talented. Usually, those mistakes happen early on – before the public has the chance to start voting. Better close for now, because AGT is coming on TV in about 45 minutes. Enjoy the show, I know I will.

If Republicans Win Big In November, Will They Impeach President Obama?



Right now, it appears to most observers that Republicans will win big in November's congressional elections. In recent days, I have begun to wonder to myself – if the GOP takes over Congress in a big way, will they attempt to impeach the President in 2015? Frankly, the answer to that question depends entirely on whether most of the fall election winners are regular Republicans or Tea Party ones. There is a growing dislike of President Obama with most Americans, but that dislike has been more like a hatred among Tea Party voters from the beginning. Americans who consider themselves Tea Party supporters are the most conservative folks seen by any nation in generations. We must remember that just because the GOP is looking strong going into this November's elections, it has been proven time and time again that they are experts at finding ways to self-destruct at the last possible minute. That said, if the GOP does not self-destruct between now and Election Day – I consider it very likely they will attempt to impeach President Obama next year. The next question would naturally be, if Republicans try to impeach Obama – will they ultimately be successful in removing him from office? It's hard to see how impeaching President Obama would serve the long-term goals of the Republican Party, but that does not mean they would not try to accomplish it.
