      It is a constant source of puzzlement why people are against the expulsion of illegal aliens.  One assumes the same people would not be opposed to the incarceration of illegal bank robbers.

      Of course, it would be nice if there were some consistent treatment.  Punishment for anyone who employed an illegal alien would have been a good idea.  It might be a bit late now.

      Do some people just wake up one morning and decide they want to be an illegal alien ?

      Fresh strawberries are a luxury.

      They weren't banned.  They were blocked because they were not invited!  They weren't on the list of the press pool. This was just a gaggle.

      A press gaggle (as distinct from a press conference or press briefing) is an informal briefing by the White House Press Secretary which (as used by press secretaries for the George W. Bush administration) is on the record, but disallows videography. The term can also be used to refer to the informal interactions between the press and the press secretary that occur before a videotaped press briefing.[1]

      One former member of the White House press corps provided the following historical context:[2]

      "Gaggles" historically refer to informal briefings the press secretary conducts with the press pool rather than the entire press corps.

      Take note of what happened to Fox News during the Obama admin.

       

      Quote

      So far, none of the four other major networks has given any indication that they wish to disinvite Fox News from the White House pool -- the rotation through which the networks share the costs and duties of White House coverage and the most significant interaction among the news channels.

      I suppose major networks has a say on the press pool.....and the major networks didn't mind at all that CNN and others, weren't on the list.  Hahahaha :lol:  They must be tired too, of CNN's being disruptive with all its repetitive questions! :D

  14. William, George "Billy" Barker: Canada's most decorated ace. While returning his new "high tech" Sopwith Snipe to the reserve depot, Billy was bounced by up to 60 Fokker D-VIIs (Germany's best aircraft of WW1). He shot down 4 Germans and escaped...though wounded.

      For sure some luck but Barker was one of the top aces of the war. One needs a certain amount of luck to win a VC and survive to wear it. Like Bishop and Beurling in WW2, Barker was an extraordinary shot.

      The Snipe didn't see enough service to see how it really stacked up against the DVII but it would have least put the Brits back on equal terms.

    55% disapprove of his performance
    55% say he is not honest, lacks leadership skills
    60% say he does not share their values
    90% think it is important that journalists hold public officials accountable
    61% disapprove how he portrayed the media
    58% say his actions are dividing the country

      he Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows that 51% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-nine percent (49%) disapprove.

      The latest figures include 37% who Strongly Approve of the way Trump is performing and 39% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -2. (see trends).

      Regular updates are posted Monday through Friday at 9:30 a.m. Eastern (sign up for free daily e-mail update).

      Following numerous leaks of secret information to the news media intended to embarrass the president, most voters think the leakers should be punished. 

      Fifty-three percent (53%) of Republicans and 50% of voters not affiliated with either major political party feel U.S. intelligence agencies have their own political agenda. Just 39% of Democrats agree.

      You forgot Torx, the opposite to Phillips. Phillips is designed to cam out the screwdriver to prevent over tightening, where torx is designed prevent it. When used with torque limiting screwdrivers, it helps achieve consistent torque.
