Northern Ireland Needs Jeremy Corbyn More Than It Realises

Jeremy Corbyn could be Northern Ireland’s best hope. But so far, we are unable to have a conversation about it because any discussion of the Labour party and Northern Ireland has led to a tiresome and endless debate about what Jeremy Corbyn and John McDonnell may or may not have said about Irish republicanism in the past.

It's getting tougher for Trump to find new lawyers to defend him in the Russia investigation

businessinsider.com/lawyers-reject-trumps-offer-to-join-russia-legal-team-2018-3

President Donald Trump has reportedly been turned down by a new set of attorneys as he seeks to bolster his legal-defense team in the Russia investigation.

The lawyers, Tom Buchanan and Dan Webb, of the law firm Winston & Strawn declined Trump's invitation, citing "business conflicts," multiple news outlets reported on Monday night.

A spokeswoman for the firm said in a statement that Buchanan and Webb consider the opportunity to represent the president "the highest honor and they sincerely regret that they cannot do so."

The statement continued: "They wish the president the best and believe he has excellent representation in Ty Cobb and Jay Sekulow," the primary attorneys on Trump's current legal team.

Trump lost his top attorney in the Russia probe last week. The lawyer, John Dowd, had only days earlier called for special counsel Robert Mueller to end the investigation into Russia's meddling in the 2016 US election. Shortly after he resigned, Dowd said he wants Mueller to interview him.

Experts have suggested that Trump is a difficult client, who has a tendency to go his own way and speak freely about legal matters.

Lawyers don't want to touch Trump with a ten foot pole.

That upcoming Mueller Interview is going to be hilarious.

reportedly

also the Muller interview will last less than five minutes because Mueller will just ask Trump if he'll sign whatever new laws he proposes, and Trump will answer yes. Mission Accomplished as far as Mueller is concerned.

I hope Trump calls their bluff and fires Mueller. Their only recourse is impeachment and they're too incompetent to pull that off.

Trump privately proposed military funding for his border wall, report says

cnbc.com/2018/03/27/trump-privately-proposed-military-funding-for-border-wall-report.html

President Donald Trump has privately said his proposed wall on the U.S.-Mexico border should be funded through the United States military, The Washington Post reported Tuesday.

The president made the suggestion to "several advisors" and House Speaker Paul Ryan last week, the newspaper said, citing three people familiar with a meeting between Trump and Ryan. Trump thinks the Defense Department could bankroll the barrier, a key campaign proposal for the president, because immigration poses a national security risk, the Post reported.

A congressional source familiar with the matter told CNBC the Washington Post report is accurate.

Just in case you thought Trump was joking about the "the military will pay for the WALL" stuff.

not really, but "border security" is a part of the patriot act

Jose Long

And Congress already doled out $1.6 billion for that.

Trump will have to convince the Pentagon that his ridiculous Wall is more important than upgrading US military forces, which is ridiculous.

On a separate note, this bullshit is a good example of Trump's selfish nature. He absolutely cannot stand money being spent on things that don't directly benefit him. It's okay that he's going to waste $50 million dollars on a military parade glorifying himself, but fuck spending any money on infrastructure.
