Donald Trump's holiday spoiled a surprise for hundreds of New Jersey campers.

President Donald Trump’s “working vacation” appears to have interrupted the actual vacations of some 250 children in Randolph, New Jersey.

Counsellors at Tamarack Day Camp were orchestrating a massive surprise for the beginning of their annual camp “colour wars” – a friendly competition between the campers. They planned for months to have skydivers dressed as superheroes swoop down and “rescue” the campers from a group of hired bikers, according to Tamarack Day assistant director Jessica Grannum.

But the camp happens to reside one-tenth of a mile inside the no-fly zone that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) established during Mr Trump’s trip to New Jersey. The zone bans all flights within a 10-mile radius of Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster for the President’s entire 17-day stay.

The camp claims they had received permission from the FAA to carry out the surprise anyway, but were shut down by the Secret Service at the last minute.

"This morning, we had the FAA clearance, the sky divers were ready on the plane and then the Secret Service shut us down for the no-fly zone," Ms Grannum told BuzzFeed News. "Which was really sad."

Ms Grannum said the Secret Service, the FAA, and the skydiving company – SkyDive Sussex – all discussed the situation in a conference call on Wednesday morning. While the FAA reportedly pushed for the camp to be granted clearance, the Secret Service held firm.

In a series of tweets, the summer camp pleaded with Mr Trump to allow the event to proceed.

“Mr. President, Please ask the Secret Service to allow our Sky Divers to fly to Randolph, NJ..to break our Color War..lots of kids,” reads a tweet from the Tamarack Day Twitter account.

When no one responded to the pleas, the camp was forced to resort to Plan B: Driving counsellors in on fire trucks to “save” the campers. Ms Grannum said the counsellors had to hastily assemble make-shift superhero costumes, as the original outfits were still in possession of the skydivers.

The Secret Service said they strive to “provide a balance between commercial aviation, general aviation, public access and security” when reviewing temporary flight restrictions (TFRs).

“The primary responsibility of the Secret Service is to provide a safe environment for the President,” spokesman Mason Brayman told The Independent in a statement. “Regardless of location, establishing TFRs will present the unique challenge of achieving our stated goal of balancing security with access.”

He added that skydiving is expressly prohibited under the TFR.

The FAA directed requests for comment to the Secret Service.

Other businesses have also complained about Mr Trump’s visit to the small, New Jersey town where his golf course is located.

Thor Solberg, Jr, who runs Solberg Airport in Readington Township, told NJ.com that his airport conducts 60 per cent of its business in the summer months. The Secret Service, he said, has been unrelenting in grounding all of the airport's flights during the President's visits.

Jodi DiPane-Saleem, who operates Central Jersey Airport in Hillsborough, said she is worried about her annual Armed Forces Appreciation Day event.

"It's a big event,” she told NJ.com. “If [the planes] can't get in when Trump's here, my event is shot.”

Donald Trump's comments on diplomat expulsions from Russia branded 'grotesque'

Members of the US State Department were reportedly shocked by Donald Trump on Thursday after he thanked Vladimir Putin for ordering the US to slash its diplomatic staff in Russia.

Breaking nearly two weeks of silence on the Russian leader's July 30 order cutting US embassy and consulate staff by nearly two thirds, the President said: "I'm very thankful that he let go of a large number of people because now we have a smaller payroll."

Mr Trump said "there’s no real reason for them to go back" and "we're going to save a lot of money," in response to Mr Putin's Cold War-style move, differing from the reactions of other presidents in similar circumstances in the past.

Trump suggests Senate GOP leader must deliver or step aside.

President Donald Trump escalated a stunning feud against his top Senate partner Thursday, suggesting Majority Leader Mitch McConnell might have to think about stepping aside if he doesn't deliver on the president's agenda of health care, taxes and infrastructure.

Trump called McConnell's failure to pass an "Obamacare" repeal last month "a disgrace." Asked if McConnell should consider stepping aside or retiring, an outcome some conservatives are openly clamoring for, the president's response was far from a vote of confidence.

"Well I tell you what, if he doesn't get repeal and replace done and if he doesn't get taxes done, meaning cuts and reform, and if he doesn't get a very easy one to get done, infrastructure, if he doesn't get them done, then you can ask me that question," the president told reporters in Bedminster, New Jersery, where he is in the midst of a 17-day break from Washington.

Trump later added that he is "very disappointed in Mitch" but would be the first to praise him if legislation begins moving, once again presenting himself as a passive observer in the process rather than a dealmaker with the presidential pulpit.

There was no immediate response from McConnell's office.

Trump says US military 'locked and loaded' on N.Korea.

President Donald Trump on Friday turned up the heat on North Korea, warning Pyongyang that the US military is "locked and loaded" in the event of a misstep by the totalitarian state, despite mounting international calls for restraint.

Trump launched another salvo at the regime of Kim Jong-Un to keep its nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs in check, as the North's official news agency accused the US of driving the situation "to the brink" of war.

The latest Twitter threat from the Republican billionaire leader came as concerns swelled worldwide that a miscalculation by either side could trigger a catastrophic conflict on the Korean peninsula.

"Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely. Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!" Trump wrote from his golf club retreat in New Jersey, where he is spending two weeks.

The official KCNA news service countered in an editorial that "Trump is driving the situation on the Korean peninsula to the brink of a nuclear war," calling the US "the mastermind of nuclear threat, the heinous nuclear war fanatic."

Earlier Friday in Beijing, China -- Pyongyang's main diplomatic ally -- had urged Trump and Kim to tone down the saber-rattling.

Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang called on both sides to avoid "going down the old path of alternately showing strength and continuously escalating the situation."

"We call on the relevant parties to be cautious with their words and actions, and contribute more toward easing tensions and enhancing mutual trust," Geng said in a statement.

Russia's Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Moscow was "very alarmed" at Trump's tough talk, saying Washington should take the first step toward cooling tensions.

"When a fight has nearly broken out, the first step away from the dangerous threshold should be taken by the side that is stronger and smarter," Lavrov said.

Beijing has repeatedly pushed resuming long-dormant six-party talks to peacefully resolve the mounting tensions, but its position has been overshadowed by Trump and Kim's emerging game of brinkmanship.

China's proposal for North Korea to halt its weapons programs in exchange for a suspension of military drills by the United States and South Korea -- seen by Pyongyang as provocative -- has essentially been ignored.

Trump has progressively ramped up the tone throughout the week -- after brandishing a threat of unleashing "fire and fury" on North Korea, he said Thursday maybe that statement "wasn't tough enough."

He warned Pyongyang it should be "very, very nervous" of the consequences if it even thinks of attacking US soil, after Kim's regime said it was readying plans to launch missiles towards the US Pacific territory of Guam.

Trump also called on China to "do a lot more" to heap pressure on Kim.

http://news.sky.com/story/trump-threatens-venezuela-with-military-action-10984503

US President Donald Trump has taken a break from his war of words with North Korea to threaten yet another country with the "military option".

Venezuela has become more unstable since its president Nicolas Maduro won a controversial election giving him new constitutional powers to bring forth what Washington describes as his "dictatorship".

More than 120 people have been killed and thousands of people, including opposition activists, have been arrested during the past four months.

Mr Trump described the situation in Venezuela as a "very dangerous mess".

He said: "We have troops all over the world in places that are very far away.

"Venezuela is not very far away and the people are suffering and they're dying.

"We have many options for Venezuela, including a possible military option if necessary."
...etc.


Excuse me? This is the much-vaunted US military that can't even beat terrorists in flip-flops, and is now considering using MERCENARIES in Afghanistan?

Oh, and sending foreign troops into Venezuela to meddle in a domestic matter is a guaranteed way of providing Maduro with an external enemy and uniting the country behind him.

Nowadays, the entire globe knows what happens to sovereign states when the US decides to Freedumb them.

Trump spat with Senate leader complicates tough agenda.

WASHINGTON — Donald Trump's attacks on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell come at the worst possible time, if the president's goal is actually to accomplish the agenda on health care, infrastructure and taxes he's goading his GOP ally to pass.

Congress, now on its August recess, will return to confront a brutal September workload including two absolute must-do items: funding the government to head off a shutdown, and raising the federal borrowing limit to avert a potentially catastrophic first-ever default on U.S. obligations.

Both will require bipartisan cooperation, something that's been in short supply on Capitol Hill this year. And that's all apart from the legislation Trump wants to see, including a rewrite of the tax code to lower rates, a sweeping infrastructure bill, and renewed efforts to repeal Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act after McConnell tried and failed last month — an outcome Trump called "a disgrace."

So the president's rhetoric this past week has fueled divisions at a moment when his party should be working together toward shared goals, not tearing each other apart. And his agenda only can pass if McConnell navigates it through the Senate, something the veteran lawmaker may not feel more motivated to do with his president working against him instead of for him.

"Virtually any substantial goals that the president intends to achieve, whether it's tax reform or more infrastructure, requires the active assistance of the Senate majority leader," said Michael Steel, who served as spokesman to John Boehner when the Ohio Republican was House speaker.

McConnell allies say that Trump's frustration over the failure on health care is shared by the majority leader. And campaign operatives on the political side say it's crucial that the next item on the agenda — overhauling the tax code — not collapse in a similar fashion. Otherwise Republicans will have a tough time making the case to voters during next year's midterms that they should continue to control both chambers of Congress and the White House.

"Tax reform is a must-do issue in our view," Steven Law, head of the McConnell-aligned super PAC Senate Leadership Fund, said Friday in an interview for C-SPAN's "Newsmakers" program. "I think if we fail to get action on that, I think people will start to wonder why Republicans are in charge of everything and what they're accomplishing."

Yet instead of linking arms with McConnell on the issue and working Capitol Hill, like Republican President George W. Bush did when he got his big tax cuts through in 2001, the White House may already be at cross-purposes with the majority leader.

The president's team has raised expectations for fast action on taxes, with White House legislative director Marc Short recently suggesting a bill could be completed by the end of the year. That's a tall order for Republicans who have yet to meet a single major legislative deadline. At the same time, Congress has made virtually no progress on infrastructure or the budget, with the unfinished work piling up.

And unlike health care, the upcoming agenda — outside of tax reform and Trump nominations — requires Democratic votes. That's sure to be another sore point between Trump and McConnell, since Trump wants the Senate to eliminate the filibuster. McConnell, along with most Senate veterans, are resolutely opposed.

McConnell dinged Trump this week for "excessive expectations" about what can happen in Congress, which didn't sit well with the president, who lashed out against the majority leader.

Even as Senate Republicans rushed to the majority leader's defense Friday following Trump's attacks, McConnell's allies tried to soothe the waters, with some noting that McConnell, while repeatedly expressing his displeasure with Trump's tweeting habits, has nonetheless proceeded forward despite them.

"The most important thing Leader McConnell said this week is that this Congress will be judged in its totality, not in a snapshot, which is exactly right," said Brian McGuire, McConnell's former chief of staff. "He and the president share a common set of legislative goals, and there's no reason whatsoever to believe those shared goals won't continue to be a unifying force in the months and years ahead."

A top priority for Trump is U.S. taxpayer money for a wall along the Mexico border despite his repeated campaign promises that Mexico would finance it. McConnell may be hard-pressed to deliver as funds for the border wall are certain to face strong Democratic opposition and some Republican foes.

"We have announced publicly, 'No wall. Never,'" said No. 2 Senate Democrat Dick Durbin of Illinois. "Don't put that on the table. It's just a nonstarter with our caucus."

The administration is signaling that Trump is so determined to win money for the wall that it may be open to a budget deal that would increase defense spending and boost funds for domestic programs favored by Democrats. Trump reluctantly relented on the wall this spring — only to turn to Twitter to threaten a shutdown if he didn't get a better deal this fall.

But adding the contentious wall issue to the already volatile mix of the September agenda could be too risky.

Trump Tells Guam Governor Nuclear Tensions Will Mean More Tourism.

President Donald Trump called the governor of Guam on Friday to reassure him of theisland’s safety as nuclear tensions grow between the United States and North Korea.

Guam Governor Eddie Calvo (R) posted a video of the call on YouTube, in which Trump can be heard telling Calvo that the U.S. is “with you 1,000 percent.” In the candid call, Trump asserted that the U.S. Pacific island territory was safe and called Calvo “a helluva guy.”

The U.S. president also contended that increased media attention around Guam — a result of North Korea threatening to fire intermediate-range missiles that would land near Guam — would bring a boom of tourism.

“Eddie, I have to tell you, you’ve become extremely famous,” Trump can be heard saying in the video. “All over the world, they’re talking about Guam, and they’re talking about you, and I think you’re going to get tourism. I can say this, your tourism, you’re going to go up like tenfold with the expenditure of no money, so I congratulate you.”

His logic was that with images of the “beautiful” Guam being all over the news, people would be more interested in going there.

DANDONG, China (Reuters) - Undeterred by escalating tensions between Pyongyang and Washington rattling nerves globally, a steady stream of tourists from China each morning passes through the immigration checkpoint at the border trading hub of Dandong.

Greeting them on the North Korean side are dozens of tour buses, collecting them for itineraries ranging from a day in neighboring Sinijiu to a week visiting North Korea's main cities, including the capital Pyongyang.

"We're curious. We want to see how they live," Xu Juan said on Thursday before crossing the Yalu River, which marks the border between the two countries. Xu was traveling with friends and family from Hangzhou, in eastern China.

"I just want the sense of nostalgia, to see a country that is poor, like (China was) when I was young," said a man in his early 50s, from Jilin province, declining to give his name.

Oh, and just to make the US's slide into 'banana republic' status complete, there is currently a HUGE brawl under way in Virginia between assorted armed, violent nutjobs of the Left and Right in progress over, as far as I can make out, a statue of Robert E. Lee:

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/08/12/emergency-declared-ahead-unite-right-rally-in-virginia.html

Gov. Terry McAuliffe declared the state of emergency after rally supporters and counter-protesters screamed, chanted, threw punches, hurled water bottles and unleashed chemical sprays on each other Saturday morning.

City officials said the declaration allows them to request additional resources to respond to the clashes expected between hundreds of white supremacists and those opposing them.

Right-wing blogger Jason Kessler planned what he called a "pro-white" rally to protest Charlottesville's decision to remove a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee from a city park.

The Virginia State Police tweeted that officers had made arrests following the unlawful assembly declaration. The National Guard has also been deployed.
......etc.

Donald Trump accused of inflaming racial tensions amid violent clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Donald Trump has been blamed for the violent clashes between white supremacists and opposing groups and police in Virginia by the Mayor of Charlottesville.

Mayor Michael Signer said he was disappointed the white nationalists had descended on his town and said responsibility lay with Mr Trump for inflaming racial prejudices during his presidential campaign last year.

He said: "I'm not going to make any bones about it. I place the blame for a lot of what you're seeing in America today right at the doorstep of the White House and the people around the President." More at link.

I doubt if any of them would be much loss to society if law enforcement pulled back and left them to kill each other, they're all horrible. Hide

US debate on arming Ukraine puts pressure on Russia, Trump.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Trump administration has reopened consideration of long-rejected plans to give Ukraine lethal weapons. Yet doing that would plunge the United States more deeply into the former Soviet republic's conflict.

The debate is putting pressure on President Donald Trump. He's fighting perceptions he's soft on the Kremlin — amid investigations into whether his campaign colluded with Moscow to interfere in last year's U.S. election.

The weapons proposal is endorsed by the Pentagon and the State Department. It reflects the administration's growing frustration with Russian intransigence on Ukraine and a broader deterioration in U.S.-Russian ties.

Donald Trump is 'dangerous and sick of mind' and should be removed from office, says former Republican senator.

Donald Trump should be removed from office because he is mentally ill, a former Republican senator has said.

Gordon Humphrey, who represented New Hampshire between 1979 and 1990, said the US President is “sick of mind” and called for members of Congress to force him out.

In a letter sent to several New Hampshire Democrat senators and representatives, Mr Humphrey said Mr Trump is “dangerous”, “seriously sick” and could cause the deaths of millions of people.

“Donald Trump is impaired by a seriously sick psyche,” he wrote in the letter, which was shared with WMUR. “His sick mind and reckless conduct could consume the lives of millions. The threat of nuclear war is steeply on the rise."

Claiming the Commander-in-Chief is “sick of mind, impetuous, arrogant, belligerent and dangerous”, he added: "Donald Trump should be relieved of the powers of the presidency at the earliest date."

“Serious crises are bearing down on us. We cannot leave our national security and our families’ safety in the hands of a President whose poor judgement, belligerence, vindictiveness and reckless impetuosity constitute an indictment of his mental health.

“Donald Trump is seriously sick. He is dangerous. As a citizen, a former US Senator and 12-year member of the (Senate) Armed Services Committee, I urge you to act at once. This is an emergency.”

The claims come amid widespread criticism of Mr Trump over his response to threats made by North Korea.

As tensions continued to mount, the President ratcheted up his rhetoric by vowing to inflict “fire and fury the like of which the world has never seen” on the communist state if it does not back down.

"President Trump's threat to rain down 'fire and fury' on North Korea is like pouring gasoline on a fire," Mr Humphrey wrote. "It's crazy."

The former senator asked New Hampshire’s representatives to support a bill, tabled by Democrats in the House of Representatives, that would make it easier to remove a sitting US president if they are deemed to be mentally unfit for office.

The legislation would establish an Oversight Commission on Presidential Capacity with responsibility for investigating whether a president "is temporarily or permanently impaired by physical illness or disability, mental illness, mental deficiency, or alcohol or drug use to the extent that the person lacks sufficient understanding or capacity to execute the powers and duties of the office”.

The proposal currently has the backing of almost 30 representatives.

Mr Humphrey is a longstanding critic of Mr Trump. Last year he called the billionaire businessman a “sociopath” with a “severe personality disorder”.

Trump aides predicting 'brutal' September.

Aides hope to use meetings in New York this week to figure out their plans for the debt ceiling, 2018 budget, tax reform, infrastructure spending and perhaps another stab at repealing Obamacare.

Inside President Donald Trump’s White House, no one seems to be looking forward to September.

Senior officials have described the coming month as "brutal," “bad” or “really tough” because of the confluence of complicated issues — but they also say it’s pivotal to getting the presidency back on course.

Aides hope to have a better blueprint for how the president wants to proceed on a series of thorny issues — the nation’s debt ceiling, the 2018 federal budget, tax reform, infrastructure spending and perhaps another stab at repealing Obamacare — after a series of meetings in New York this week.

Their goal is to partially temper Trump’s expectations, hammer out some compromises and get a competing band of aides on the same page. The month has taken on outsize importance among some top aides and outside advisers, who view it as key to getting the presidency on a better track.

“The stakes are very high in September,” said Jenny Beth Martin, who leads the Tea Party Patriots, a conservative grass-roots group. “There is a lot to do in a very short period of time.”

Trump, who is impatient, wants it all done immediately, said people close to the president — and he has ratcheted up pressure on aides in recent weeks, even though he doesn't always engage with the substance of issues.

What makes the month harder is that many of the fights are in Congress, where the president and his team have little control.

"The president has made clear his commitment to getting health care, tax reform and infrastructure passed in Congress. There shouldn't have to be a choice," said Kelly Love, a White House spokeswoman.

Trump’s aides have prepared lengthy memos and presentations on the legislative calendar for Trump in New York and Washington next week to see how he wants to handle the policy debates.

Ex-KKK Leader David Duke Says Racist Rally Represents Trump's Promises.

As the official start of the “Unite the Right” rally kicked off in Charlottesville, Virginia, former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke said the gathering of white supremacists, neo-Nazis and far-right individuals pointed to a future fulfillment of President Donald Trump’s “promises.”

“This represents a turning point for the people of this country,” said Duke in video uploaded to Twitter by Indianapolis Star photojournalist Mykal McEldowney. “We are determined to take our country back. We are going to fulfill the promises of Donald Trump. That’s what we believed in, that’s why we voted for Donald Trump. Because he said he’s going to take our country back. That’s what we gotta do.”

Trump condemned “hate” and “violence” in response to clashes at the rally on Saturday, though he did not call out white supremacists in particular.

Duke, a former KKK Grand Wizard, has long connected his message of white supremacy to ideas espoused by the president.

During the presidential campaign, Duke stated that he and Trump had similar messages, pointing to Trump proposing policies like a border wall or Muslim ban.

“Donald Trump is talking implicitly. I’m talking explicitly,” Duke said last year, according to Time.

Duke supported Trump’s campaign and publicly celebrated his lead on election night.  Trump disavowed Duke and the KKK, but only after initially declining to do so, claiming he didn’t “know anything about” him.   More at link.

John Oliver is also confused why Trump won't disavow the love from Nazis after Charlottesville.

John Oliver began Sunday's Last Week Tonight, sadly but predictably, with the weekend's violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, where an apparent Nazi sympathizer killed one anti-racism protester and wounded scores more during a march by white separatists. Specifically, Oliver puzzled over Trump's condemnation of the violence "on many sides," without singling out the well-armed and organized group that came to Charlottesville looking for a fight and ending, collectively, with a murder.

"On many sides?" Oliver asked. "This was a white nationalist rally, you have to call that out by name. There aren't many instances in modern American politics where you can honestly think, 'That guy really should have mentioned the Nazis,' but this is emphatically one of them. It's like a reverse Godwin's Law: if you fail to mention Nazism, you lose the argument."    More at link.
