President Donald Trump Welcomes Home Three Americans Imprisoned in North Korea Back to the USA (VIDEO)
President Donald Trump shook hands with former three detainees Kim Dong-chul, Kim Hak-song and Tony Kim as he welcomed them home after their imprisonment in North Korea. The visuals below in the videos are amazing. You can witness the emotion from these three men and their new found freedom and what freedom truly looks like when it is taken away. Thank you President Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. One never expects good things to happen at 3 AM in the morning; however, these are the types of stories that makes it proud to make you an America.
Even CNN had to acknowledge President Donald Trump’s amazing accomplishments, History in the making as Trump welcomes prisoners home.
Just maybe, the extraordinary scene that unfolded in the dead of night on an airfield outside Washington early Thursday is the start of something truly historic.
President Donald Trump welcomed home three American prisoners from North Korea, citing their release as proof that his diplomacy with the isolated state is delivering. In what must have been a surreal experience, Kim Dong Chul, Kim Hak-song and Kim Sang Duk — who were only released from custody on Wednesday — were suddenly plunged into a media circus.
“I think you probably broke the all-time in history television rating for 3 o’clock in the morning,” Trump told reporters at Joint Base Andrews as he stood alongside the freed prisoners.
In extraordinary scenes, Trump and the first lady clapped and cheered as the men walked down the steps with their arms in the air and giving triumphant ‘V’ signs signifying both peace and victory.
Their first steps back on American soil came hours earlier, in Alaska, when the plane carrying them home stopped to refuel.
On the tarmac in suburban Maryland, Trump said: ‘These are great people. Frankly, we didn’t think this was going to happen, but it did. It was important to get these people out. This is a special night for these three really great people.’

Trump also thanked Kim Jong-un for freeing ‘the folks early.’ calling it ‘a wonderful thing’ and adding he believes the North Korean despot ‘really wants to do something’ and bring the hermit kingdom ‘into the real world.’
He said: ‘We’re starting off on a new footing. I really think we have a very good chance of doing something very meaningful, and if anybody would’ve said that five years ago, 10 years ago, even a year ago, you would’ve said, ‘That’s not possible.’
‘My proudest achievement will be when we denuclearize that entire [Korean] peninsula,’ he added.

#HIM TOO: Four Women Accuse New York’s Attorney General Eric Schneiderman of Physical Abuse & Assault … Schneiderman Denies … Schneiderman Resigns From Office
WOW, THAT WAS FAST … #HIM TOO!!!
Last night The New Yorker dropped the bombshell that New York’s attorney general Eric Schneiderman was being accused by four women of physical abuse. Two of the women remained anonymous, while two others made their name’s public. The women allege that Schneiderman repeatedly hit them, often after drinking, frequently in bed and never with their consent. Manning Barish and Selvaratnam categorize the abuse he inflicted on them as “assault.” Following the allegations in a statement, Schneiderman said, “In the privacy of intimate relationships, I have engaged in role-playing and other consensual sexual activity. I have not assaulted anyone. I have never engaged in nonconsensual sex, which is a line I would not cross.” But one woman stated that State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman called his Sri Lankan girlfriend his “brown slave” and wanted her to refer to him as “Master.” Whether this be role play or not, some how I double whether this is considered acceptable behavior or word choice in this day and age.
Eric Schneiderman, New York’s attorney general, has long been a liberal Democratic champion of women’s rights, and recently he has become an outspoken figure in the #MeToo movement against sexual harassment. As New York State’s highest-ranking law-enforcement officer, Schneiderman, who is sixty-three, has used his authority to take legal action against the disgraced film mogul Harvey Weinstein, and to demand greater compensation for the victims of Weinstein’s alleged sexual crimes. Last month, when the Times and this magazine were awarded a joint Pulitzer Prize for coverage of sexual harassment, Schneiderman issued a congratulatory tweet, praising “the brave women and men who spoke up about the sexual harassment they had endured at the hands of powerful men.” Without these women, he noted, “there would not be the critical national reckoning under way.”
Now Schneiderman is facing a reckoning of his own. As his prominence as a voice against sexual misconduct has risen, so, too, has the distress of four women with whom he has had romantic relationships or encounters. They accuse Schneiderman of having subjected them to nonconsensual physical violence. All have been reluctant to speak out, fearing reprisal. But two of the women, Michelle Manning Barish and Tanya Selvaratnam, have talked to The New Yorker on the record, because they feel that doing so could protect other women. They allege that he repeatedly hit them, often after drinking, frequently in bed and never with their consent. Manning Barish and Selvaratnam categorize the abuse he inflicted on them as “assault.” They did not report their allegations to the police at the time, but both say that they eventually sought medical attention after having been slapped hard across the ear and face, and also choked. Selvaratnam says that Schneiderman warned her he could have her followed and her phones tapped, and both say that he threatened to kill them if they broke up with him. (Schneiderman’s spokesperson said that he “never made any of these threats.”)
State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman called his Sri Lankan girlfriend his “brown slave” and wanted her to refer to him as “Master,” the woman says.
Harvard-educated activist writer Tanya Selvaratnam told the New Yorker magazine that her yearlong affair with Schneiderman “was a fairytale that became a nightmare” — and quickly escalated into violence in the bedroom, even as he begged for threesomes.
“Sometimes, he’d tell me to call him Master, and he’d slap me until I did,” Selvaratnam said.
“He started calling me his ‘brown slave’ and demanding that I repeat that I was ‘his property.’
New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has resigned following the stunning New Yorker report on four women accusing him of physical violence.
In response to the report, Schneiderman denied he engaged in any non-consensual behavior and said he had been “role-playing.” Governor Andrew Cuomo and Senator Kirsten Gillibrand had called on him to resign earlier tonight.
And then, just hours after the report was released, Schneiderman put out a statement announcing his resignation.
“It’s been my great honor and privilege to serve as attorney general for the people of the State of New York,” Schneiderman said. “In the last several hours, serious allegations, which I strongly contest, have been made against me.”
“While these allegations are unrelated to my professional conduct or the operations of the office, they will effectively prevent me from leading the office’s work at this critical time. I therefore resign my office, effective at the close of business on May 8, 2018.”
Lost in this story of abuse, assault and sick perversion is that Eric Schneiderman was a long time Trump nemesis where Trump tweeted in 2013 … Just as Trump predicted in 2013 tweet: “Weiner is gone, Spitzer is gone – next will be lightweight A.G. Eric Schneiderman… Wait and see, worse than Spitzer or Weiner” Wow, does Trump want to pick the next Lottery numbers? It makes one wonder what did people know about Eric Schneiderman and namely, what did Democrat New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo know?

GOP Representatives Refer James Comey, Hillary Clinton, McCabe & ex-AG Lynch for Criminal Investigation
Does Attorney General Jeff Sessions have the guts to do the right thing?
From FOX News, nearly a dozen Republican members of Congress have sent a criminal referral to the Justice Department and FBI seeking an investigation of former bureau boss James Comey, his deputy Andrew McCabe, ex-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Hillary Clinton in connection with 2016 campaign controversies. If Trump is going to be investigated, why shouldn’t Clinton, Comey, McCabe and Lynch also treated in a similar manner? Or do we have two sets of standards?
Attorney General Jeff Sessions already announced last month he had assigned a federal prosecutor to review some of those broader issues, while resisting calls for a second special counsel. But the referral represents an escalation of Republican pressure to probe top Democrats and Trump critics.
Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., and 10 other House lawmakers want an investigation into potential violations that cover everything from the handling of the Clinton email probe to the anti-Trump dossier’s funding to the Uranium One controversy. They made their case in a letter sent Wednesday to Sessions, FBI Director Christopher Wray, and U.S. Attorney John Huber, whom Sessions named to lead the previously announced evaluation.
Complaining about “dissimilar degrees of zealousness” in the investigations into Clinton and Trump campaign associates, they wrote:
“Because we believe that those in positions of high authority should be treated the same as every other American, we want to be sure that the potential violations of law outlined below are vetted appropriately.”
They named Comey, Clinton, Lynch, McCabe, FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page and several others as figures who should be investigated.
AND THE OSCAR FOR THE WORST EVER TV RATINGS ACADEMY AWARD SHOW GOES TO …
According to the The Hollywood Reporter, the 2018 Oscar TV ratings fell to an all-time low. Hosted by the smug and self-righteous Jimmy Kimmel, the Academy Award telecast dropped 19% from 2017. But what did anyone expect? Hollywood produced less than stellar movies and a bunch of individuals who live in glass house preaching to us. The American public has grown weary of the liberal political rallies that masquerade as an award show.
These are the people who have looked the other way as members in their ivory tower community have sexually exploited, assaulted and raped. They now jump on the “#me too” bandwagon and look to throw accusations at anyone and justify that rape and a casual comment is the same. The cesspool of Hollywood is imploding and these individuals still look to point the fingers at others. Keep it Hollywood, there is always next year and your ratings can go even lower.
The telecast stumbles an unfortunate 19 percent from 2017.
A comparatively uneventful Oscar telecast led the way on TV Sunday night — though updated numbers have the telecast somewhat predictably stumbling to an all-time low.
The kudocast, nearly four hours long, stumbled 19 percent from the previous year to 26.5 million viewers. That’s easily the least-watched Oscars in history, trailing 2008 by more than 5 million. Overnight returns had the lengthy ABC broadcast averaging a 18.9 rating among households between 8 and 11 p.m. ET. Compared to the same stat for 2017, the night the wrong best picture winner was named, that was down a more modest 16 percent.
Last year’s Academy Awards, which earned a 22.4 overnight rating, ultimately fetched 32.9 million viewers for ABC, as well as a handsome 9.1 rating among adults 18-49. Still, those numbers reflected the second-lowest in Academy history. (ABC did not immediately report the adults 18-49 rating for Sunday’s Oscars, and Nielsen won’t widely distribute that information until Tuesday.)
Flashback … remember in 2003 when Hollywood gave convicted child rapist Roman Polanki Best Director and all the stars stood and cheered, including Meryl Streep. I think that is all we need to know about the hypocrites in Hollywood.
