Churchill Bust returned back to the Oval Office …
MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN AND TREATING OUR FRIENDS WITH RESPECT … President Donald J. Trump has returned the bust of former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill in the Oval Office. The era of insulting American allies is over, Obama is gone. The agitator in Chief Obama had removed the bust from the office in 2009 which sparked outrage on both sides of the Atlantic. But that is was a community agitator does and thankfully those days are now over. Is it any wonder why, from the quote below from Churchill why Obama would have removed the bust. Thankfully, the days of Obama are over and its back to the United States treating their allies with respect and their enemies with disdain.
Just one of the many things that Trump will have to undo of the 8 horrible years of Obama.
President Trump has reinstalled a bust of former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill in the Oval Office.
The bust was removed from the office in 2009 under former President Barack Obama, a move that sparked conservative ire early in his administration.
The bust was spotted by reporters in the Oval Office while Trump signed a series of executive orders, some of his first official acts as president.
Obama moved the bust out of the office up to the White House residence.
The Obama White House said the bust was removed to make room for one of former President Abraham Lincoln and another of Martin Luther King Jr.
Some Republicans and conservatives interpreted Obama’s move as a snub to the United Kingdom, one of the U.S.’s closest allies.
ASSANGE CLAIMS RUSSIANS NOT THE SOURCE OF WIKILEAKS PODESTA HACKED EMAILS …
In an exclusive interview with FOX News Channel’s Sean Hannity, the founder of WikiLeaks Julian Assange said that Russia was not the source for the DNC and John Podesta hacked emails. Barack Obama and Democrats have blamed Russia for interfering in US elections with the hacks. Or is it that Democrats are looking to shift blame from themselves and Hillary Clinton’s embarrassing 2016 presidential election loss to Donald Trump? The WikiLeaks founder said that the Obama administration trying to ‘delegitimize’ Trump and his electoral landslide victory.
“They’re trying to delegitimize the Trump administration as it goes into the White House,” Assange said during an interview with Fox News’s Sean Hannity airing Tuesday night, according to a transcript of excerpts from the network.
“They are trying to say that President-elect Trump is not a legitimate president,” Assange said during the interview, which was conducted at the Ecuadorian embassy in London where he has been staying.
HANNITY: Can you say to the American people, unequivocally, that you did not get this information about the DNC, John Podesta’s emails, can you tell the American people 1,000 percent that you did not get it from Russia or anybody associated with Russia?
JULIAN ASSANGE: Yes. We can say, we have said, repeatedly that over the last two months that our source is not the Russian government and it is not a state party.
ASSANGE: Our publications had wide uptake by the American people, they’re all true. But that’s not the allegation that’s being presented by the Obama White House. So, why such a dramatic response? Well, the reason is obvious. They’re trying to delegitimize the Trump administration as it goes into the White House. They are trying to say that President-elect Trump is not a legitimate President…
ASSANGE: Our source is not a state party, so the answer for our interactions is no. But if we look at our most recent statement from the US government, which is on the 29th of December, OK, we had five different branches of government, Treasury, DHS, FBI, White House presenting their accusations to underpin Obama’s throwing out 29 Russian diplomats. What was missing from all of those statements? The word WikiLeaks. It’s very strange.

The horrific massacre took place as at least 700 nightclub-goers were celebrating New Years Eve in Istanbul, Turkey, when the terrorist struck. According to reports. it was a lone terrorist gunman who reportedly shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ before opening fire, armed with an AK-47.

Suleyman Soylu said efforts were continuing to find the attacker, who was believed to have acted alone.
At least 69 people were being treated in hospital, the minister added. Four were said to be in a serious condition.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said the attackers were trying to “create chaos” and pledged to “fight to the end” against terrorism.
Addressing reporters early on Sunday, Mr Soylu said: “This was a massacre, a truly inhuman savagery.”
“A manhunt for the terrorist is under way. Police have launched operations. We hope the attacker will be captured soon.”
HOW’S THAT OBAMA-CLINTON RUSSIAN RESET GOING?
Reuters is reporting that the United States expelled 35 Russian diplomats and closed two Russian compounds in New York and Maryland. Hmm, so this is how Obama strikes back at Russia for election hacking, eh? So just curious, would Obama had done this if Hillary Clinton was elected president? Of course no is the answer. It is yet just one more vindictive, 11th hour, out the door temper tantrum by a failed president. Barack Obama knew about this hacking for months and did nothing. But the coward and chief manages to muster up the CO-JONES on his way out the door. Honestly, Obama can’t leave soon enough.
The United States expelled 35 Russian diplomats and closed two Russian compounds in New York and Maryland in response to a campaign of harassment against American diplomats in Moscow, a senior U.S. official said on Thursday.
The move against the diplomats from the Russian embassy in Washington and consulate in San Francisco is part of a series of actions announced on Thursday to punish Russia for a campaign of intimidation of American diplomats in Moscow and interference in the U.S. election.
The Obama administration was also announcing on Thursday a series of retaliatory measures against Russia for hacking into U.S. political institutions and individuals and leaking information to help President-elect Donald Trump and other Republican candidates, two U.S. officials said.
Trump, who takes office on Jan. 20, has called for better relations with Russia. It was not clear if he will be able to immediately overturn the measures announced on Thursday.
The Russian diplomats would have 72 hours to leave the United States, the official said. Access to the two compounds, which are used by Russian officials for intelligence gathering, will be denied to all Russian officials as of noon on Friday, the senior U.S. official added.
“These actions were taken to respond to Russian harassment of American diplomats and actions by the diplomats that we have assessed to be not consistent with diplomatic practice,” the official said.
The Obama administration struck back at Russia on Thursday for its efforts to influence the 2016 election, ejecting 35 Russian intelligence operatives from the United States and imposing sanctions on Russia’s two leading intelligence services, including four top officers of the military intelligence unit the White House believes ordered the attacks on the Democratic National Committee and other political organizations.
In a sweeping set of announcements, the United States was also expected to release evidence linking the cyberattacks to computer systems used by Russian intelligence. Taken together, the actions would amount to the strongest American response ever taken to a state-sponsored cyberattack aimed at the United States.
THE MANHUNT IS OVER … ISLAMIST TERRORIST RESPONSIBLE FOR BERLIN CHRISTMAS MARKET ATTACK IS KILLED!!!
Anis Amri, the 24-year-old Tunisian has been shot and killed by police in Milan, Italy. The terrorist suspect responsible for the deadly Berlin Christmas market attack has been soot dead in the Sesto San Giovanni district of the northern Italian city.
The terrorist behind Monday’s deadly attack on a Berlin Christmas market swore allegiance to ISIS before dying in a wee-hours shootout with police in Milan Friday, some some 675 miles from the scene of Monday’s carnage.
Anis Amri, the 24-year-old Tunisian whose monstrous attack sparked a 72-hour manhunt and raised questions about Germany’s inability to come to grips with radicals among its burgeoning refugee population, was killed in the Sesto San Giovanni district of the northern Italian city, police said.
Before his death, Amri pledged his allegiance to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and called for jihadists to take revenge on “crusaders” bombing Muslims, a video posted on Islamic State’s Amaq news agency showed. It was not clear if the video was made before or after the Berlin attack.
Video released of the Berlin Christmas market terrorist suspect Anis Amri pledging allegiance to ISIS.
Video has emerged of the Berlin Christmas market attack suspect Anis Amri pledging allegiance to ISIS. The footage emerged hours after he was killed in an early-morning shootout in Milan on Friday morning.
The Tunisian man, who has been the subject of a Europe-wide manhunt since Monday’s market attack in which 12 people were killed, was stopped in Sesto San Giovanni — a district in the northeastern part of Milan — just after 3am local time, Italian police said on Twitter.
A video released Friday on ISIS-affiliated website, Amaq, shows Amri pledging allegiance to the group’s leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. He does not refer to Monday’s attack.
When the man was asked for his papers by Italian police, he pulled a .22 calibre gun out of his backpack and fired at them.
