#MeToo Movement Gives Pass To Dems Running For California Governor
Gavin Newsom had an inappropriate affair with his employee. Antonio Villaraigosa cheated on his wife with a reporter assigned to cover him. Yet the #MeToo movement, which has urged women to speak up about sexual misconduct allegations, has remained visibly silent about the sexual conduct of two prominent Democrats running for governor in California. Some are calling it outright hypocrisy. Fox
VOA VIEW: Left wing hypocrisy.

Dinesh D'Souza: A Behind The Scenes Look At My Presidential Pardon
On Wednesday I was working in my office when the phone rang and the operator announced: “Please hold for the president of the United States.” I resisted the impulse to make a joke: “I’m in the middle of something. Can you let him know I’ll call him right back?” President Trump came on, and told me he was sitting in the Oval Office with White House Chief of Staff John Kelly. “You know John, don’t you?” the president said. I sheepishly said I didn’t, but of course I knew who he was. President Trump said I was a great voice for freedom and for America.  Fox

How A 'Nobody' Ex Con Pushed Avenatti Law Firm Into Bankruptcy
Even before he became famous as the fast-talking, trash-talking, in-your-face attorney representing Stormy Daniels in her sexually-charged lawsuit against the President, Michael J. Avenatti had achieved an enviable degree of success and notoriety. His law firm, Eagan Avenatti LLP, had hauled in more than $400 million in verdicts and settlements. His cases were featured on CNN, "60 Minutes" and in the pages of the New York Times and Wall Street Journal. CNN
VOA VIEW: CNN and the NYT are just as phony as Avenatti.

Trump Says Singapore Summit With Kim Back On
"I think we're over that, totally over that, and now we're going to deal and we're going to really start a process," Trump said on the South Lawn after meeting with the North Korean envoy, Kim Yong Chol, for more than an hour in the Oval Office. "We're meeting with the chairman on June 12 and I think it's probably going to be a very successful -- ultimately a successful process," Trump said. CNN

Trudeau: Trump's Tariffs Are 'Insulting And Unacceptable'
Canadian Prime Minster Justin Trudeau on Friday slammed the White House claim that it was imposing new tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum to protect American national security interests. "Our soldiers who had fought and died together on the beaches of World War II...and the mountains of Afghanistan, and have stood shoulder to shoulder in some of the most difficult places in the world, that are always there for each other, somehow — this is insulting to them," Trudeau said in an exclusive interview with "Meet the Press" moderator Chuck Todd. NBC
VOA VIEW: Nothing stated gives Canada the right to take advantage of the US.

President Trump Misses LGBTQ Pride Month-Again
This year alone, President Donald Trump has recognized January as National Mentoring Month, March as National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month and April as Second Chance Month. He has already declared the month of June to be National Homeownership Month, National Ocean Month, Great Outdoors Month and National Caribbean-American Heritage Month. But one proclamation is — once again — conspicuously absent from the White House website: LGBTQ Pride Month. NBC

Israel Army Kills Palestinian Nurse In Gaza Border Protest
Israeli forces killed a Palestinian nurse on Friday as she tried to help a wounded protester at the Gaza border, according to health officials and a witness, while Israel said militants had attacked its troops with gunfire and a grenade. Razan Al-Najar’s death brought to 119 the number of Palestinians killed in weekly demonstrations launched on March 30 in the Gaza Strip, an enclave controlled by the Islamist group Hamas and long subject to grinding Israeli and Egyptian embargoes.

Google Labels Trump Supporter, Republican State Senator As Bigot
Trudy Wade is a Republican state senator from North Carolina and an enthusiastic supporter of President Trump. But if you search “Trudy Wade” on Google, the search giant displays an old photo in the “knowledge panel” of its search results with “BIGOT” superimposed in big red letters. It's just the latest example of Google not vetting the information that gets pulled into its “knowledge panels,” which are meant to give users quick information without them having to click through search results (often on other, non-Google websites). Vice

EU Lawmakres From Italy's Coalition Supported A Failed EU Motion On Funds To Quit Euro
European Union lawmakers from the two parties forming Italy’s new government coalition backed this week a rejected proposal to set up EU funds to help countries quit the euro, a sign of the Italian leadership’s ambivalent position on the common currency. Their vote came as the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement and far-right League were finalizing a deal to form an executive in Rome, under pledges that leaving the euro was not in their government program.

Hey Sessions, Arrest Obama Already!
The attorney general and the dirty DOJ probably already have enough to arrest, try, and convict Barack Obama, but since they won’t, you can join nearly 8,000 Americans who have signed the White House petition to fire Jefferson Beauregard Sessions “for all the obvious reasons” by clicking here. First, let’s clear up some common misconceptions. Former President Barack H. Obama no longer has presidential immunity since that only protected him while he was in office. On the other hand,current President Donald J. Trump does have immunity. Further, as a matter of law, the immunity which Obama previously enjoyed from the time of his inauguration on January 20, 2009 until he left office on January 20, 2017 does not stop the DOJ from prosecuting now for crimes in which he may have taken part during his administration. Nor would it stop a local DA from pursuing state/local charges against him. InfoWars
VOA VIEW: Obama and many in the DOJ and FBI need to be prosecuted.

US In Early Talks For Summit Between Trump And Putin
The White House and Kremlin are in early talks for a face-to-face meeting between President Trump and Russian strongman Vladimir Putin, according to a report published on Friday night. The Wall Street Journal cited multiple unnamed sources who claimed such a summit is in the works, which could bring two of the world’s most powerful men onto a single stage. Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman, now the US ambassador to Russia, has been on the front end of talks to bring the world leaders together, an official said. NY Post

Puerto Rico Sues To Obtain Data On Deaths From Hurricane Maria

Teens Are Abandoning Facebook In Dramatic Numbers
Teenagers have abandoned Facebook in favour of other social media platforms such as Snapchat and Instagram, according to a study from the Pew Research Center. Just 51% of US individuals aged 13 to 17 say they use Facebook – a dramatic plunge from the 71% who said they used the social network in Pew’s previous study in 2015, when it was the dominant online platform.

The Spies Have A Leading Role In The North Korea Summit
When Mike Pompeo became CIA director last year, he immediately set his sights on North Korea and its opaque nuclear program. "Within weeks of me coming here, I created a Korea Mission Center, stood it up with a senior leader who had just retired, brought him back to run the organization," Pompeo said in January. He didn't name that senior leader, but was referring to Andrew Kim, a Korean-American who grew up in South Korea. NPR

President Trump Orders Help For Coal And Nuclear Plants
President Trump has ordered Energy Secretary Rick Perry to take immediate steps to help financially troubled coal and nuclear power plants. A draft plan marked "confidential" is being circulated around Washington. No one from the Trump administration has confirmed to NPR that the draft is an official document. Still, the White House issued a statement in response to news reports about the plan, saying the U.S. electric grid is at risk because of coal and nuclear plant shutdowns — called "retirements" in the industry.

Busboy Who Held Dying Robert F. Kennedy Shares Senator's Last Words
Juan Romero, who was 17 at the time of the 1968 slaying in Los Angeles, was working on that early June night when the presidential hopeful made remarks at the Ambassador Hotel, he recalled in an interview with StoryCorps, according to NPR. After Kennedy spoke to supporters, following his victory in that day's California Democratic presidential primary, he was reportedly ushered through the hotel’s kitchen, where he paused to greet employees, including Romero.

Costruction On San Diego Section Of US Border Wall Begins
Roughly 14 miles of the eight-to-10-foot-high barrier made out of scrap metal will be replaced with a "bollard-style wall" more than twice as tall, a CBP news release said. The new wall will also include an anti-climbing plate, according to the agency. “The San Diego Sector wall construction is one of Border Patrol’s top priority projects,” the statement said. Fox

Avenatti Alleges Michael Cohen Recorded 'Inappropriate' Conversations
Michael Avenatti, the lawyer representing adult film actress Stormy Daniels, alleged in an interview with CNN's Jake Tapper on Wednesday that Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's longtime personal attorney, had recorded "inappropriate" conversations. In the same interview, Avenatti also alleged Trump is among the people on the recordings. Earlier on Wednesday, Avenatti dropped his request to participate in the court battle tied to the FBI raid of Cohen's hotel and office after a federal judge said that in order to be admitted into the New York proceedings, he would need to "stop your publicity tour." CNN
VOA VIEW: The facts are questionable by CNN and Avenatti.

US Trying To Figure Out A Discreet Way Of Paying For Kim Jong Un's Hotel During Summit
At an island resort off the coast of Singapore, U.S. event planners are working day and night with their North Korean counterparts to set up a summit designed to bring an end to Pyongyang’s nuclear weapons program. But a particularly awkward logistical issue remains unresolved, according to two people familiar with the talks. Who’s going to pay for Kim Jong Un’s hotel stay? The prideful but cash-poor pariah state requires that a foreign country foot the bill at its preferred lodging: the Fullerton, a magnificent neoclassical hotel near the mouth of the Singapore River, where just one presidential suite costs more than $6,000 per night.

US Economy Suddenly Looks Unstoppable
In the face of persistent fears that the world could be facing a trade war and a synchronized slowdown, the U.S. economy enters June with a good deal of momentum. Friday's data provided convincing evidence that domestic growth remains intact even if other developed economies are slowing. A better-than-expected nonfarm payrolls report coupled with a convincing uptick in manufacturing and construction activity showed that the second half approaches with a tail wind blowing. CNBC

Sour Pelosi Poo Poos Booming Economy
The May unemployment rate was a stunningly low 3.8 percent, according to the Wall Street Journal. Black unemployment is the lowest ever: 5.9 percent, the Washington Examiner reports. But instead of celebrating the incredible economic activity, the House Speaker wannabe shrugged. “May’s jobs report shows that strong employment numbers mean little to the families hit with soaring new costs under the Republicans’ watch,” the House Minority Leader said in a statement.

'We Found Russian Hit List Of 47 People', Ukraine Tells Allies
The Kiev authorities drew both praise and consternation this week for staging the fake shooting of Arkady Babchenko, an exiled journalist, which they said was necessary to protect him and dozens of others who were targeted in a genuine Russian plot. Russia has poured scorn on Ukraine’s allegations while some organizations and commentators criticized Kiev for the kind of trickery which Ukraine routinely accuses Russia of using. Ukraine’s credibility matters as it counts on Western financial support and sanctions on Moscow in its standoff with Russia over the annexation of Crimea in 2014 and a Russian-backed separatist conflict in which more than 10,000 people have been killed.

MSNBC Pushes Conspiracy Threories Over Trump's Tweet
A panel of MSNBC commentators were sent into a conspiracy theory spell over Trump's tweet regarding the incoming jobs report. On Friday morning, ahead of the positive U.S. jobs report which showed that 223,000 new jobs were created in May, President Trump tweeted, "Looking forward to seeing the employment numbers at 8:30 this morning." The one lined tweet sent heads rolling on the MSNBC's Morning Joe where panelists diverted from the positive report and instead jumped into conspiracies of insider trading. News Wars

Deadbeat Son Calls Cops On Dad Before Finally Moving Out
Michael Rotondo finally left his parents’ nest Friday, but not before delivering one last parting shot at them — by siccing the cops on his dad over some missing Legos. The infamous 30-year-old freeloader — whose parents won a court order to evict him from their suburban Syracuse house — called 911 reporting that his dad, Mark, wouldn’t let him into the home’s basement to search for his 8-year-old son’s Legos. The 61-year-old father offered to look for the toys and other items Rotondo wanted to take with him, but the layabout still whined like a baby. NY Post

Is President Trump Hurting Or Helping The GOP Brand?
Is it time to stop calling young conservatives unable to fully wrap their minds around the idea of a President Trump “Never Trumpers”? Has the epithet outlived its usefulness because it has come to describe futility, especially on the right? Mr. Trump owns the contemporary GOP. “Nevering” (to coin a verb) behavior is past its prime and has become tiresome and ineffectual. And to be fair, many of these young (anyone under age forty in my book) skeptics are often willing to acknowledge select Trump’s accomplishments, so the qualifier “never” doesn’t really apply.

Joy Reid: "It Was A Hell Of An Idea To Send Laura Ingraham And Ann Coulter To Iraq, Put Them In Public Square And Leave Them There"
Newly revealed blog posts from MSNBC host Joy Reid show that she once promoted a disgusting attack on Laura Ingraham and Ann Coulter. In a vicious post going after Ann Coulter titled, “Dear Mr. Coulter,” she ended the post by saying “And finally, here’s one hell of an idea.” The “one hell of an idea” line is hyperlinked to another post from the blog “Brilliant at Breakfast” titled, “Can we send Laura Ingraham and Ann Coulter to Iraq, put them in a public square and just leave them there?” Daily Caller

MSNBC Panel Puts Negative Spin On Excellent May Job Numbers
An MSNBC panel on Friday worked overtime to put a negative spin on the excellent May jobs report that showed better-than-expected job growth and low unemployment.

Harvey Weinstein Is Facing Yet Another Class-Action Lawsuit
Harvey Weinstein has been named as a defendant in another class action lawsuit. In a suit filed Friday morning at the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, three plaintiffs accused the former Hollywood producer — who has just been indicted on rape charges — of sexual assault. Caitlin Dulany, Larissa Gomes, and Melissa Thompson were actresses who met with Weinstein to discuss business, and were allegedly met with his sexual advances.

MSNBC Stands By Joy Reid After New Apology For Controversial Blog Posts
MSNBC host Joy Reid apologized - again - for a series of old blog posts that questioned Israel's sovereignty, suggested the government was behind the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and had the head of Sen.

Reid's statement, issued Friday, appeared to be an effort to head off critics who called for NBC News fire her after more of her decade-old posts came to light this week. LMT Online

ICE Deports Man Whose Family Died In Crash While Fleeing Immigration Agents
More than a month ago, a Delano couple died when they crashed their truck while fleeing from immigration agents. The man and woman, who were in the country illegally, had not been the intended target of Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents. Officials later said that the agents were trying to arrest another man and that Santos Hilario Garcia, who died in the crash, matched the description of their target. On Wednesday, ICE arrested and deported the person they had been after: the dead man’s brother, Celestino Hilario Garcia. KTLA

He Fixes The Worst PR Crises Imaginable. Then Came Harvey Weinstein.
Michael Sitrick couldn’t comment on Harvey Weinstein. Until a few weeks earlier, Mr. Sitrick’s crisis management firm, Sitrick and Company, had been managing Mr. Weinstein’s unprecedented crisis. Mr. Sitrick had dropped Mr. Weinstein, but he couldn’t say why. He couldn’t confirm if it was because Mr. Weinstein had stopped paying his bills, though he could confirm it was true that Mr. Weinstein had stopped paying his bills, and that the two parties were in arbitration.

Dems Selectively Outraged Over D'Souza Pardon
Democrats were outraged when president Trump pardoned conservative author, documentarian, and commentator Dinesh D’Souza for campaign finance fraud.
