Following last Saturday’s (Jan 19) Telegraph magazine cover story “The mystery of Melania”, we have been asked to make clear that the article contained a number of false statements which we accept should not have been published. Mrs Trump’s father was not a fearsome presence and did not control the family. Mrs Trump did not leave her Design and Architecture course at University relating to the completion of an exam, as alleged in the article, but rather because she wanted to pursue a successful career as a professional model. Mrs Trump was not struggling in her modelling career before she met Mr Trump, and she did not advance in her career due to the assistance of Mr Trump.
We accept that Mrs Trump was a successful professional model in her own right before she met her husband and obtained her own modelling work without his assistance. Mrs Trump met Mr Trump in 1998, not in 1996 as stated in the article. The article also wrongly claimed that Mrs Trump’s mother, father and sister relocated to New York in 2005 to live in buildings owned by Mr Trump. They did not. The claim that Mrs Trump cried on election night is also false.
We apologise unreservedly to The First Lady and her family for any embarrassment caused by our publication of these allegations. As a mark of our regret we have agreed to pay Mrs Trump substantial damages as well as her legal costs.

U.S.—The increasingly secular nation has replaced its outdated religious ideas with more advanced, enlightened ideas, like telling you what behavior is immoral and predicting when the world is going to end.
Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has just predicted that the world will end in 12 years if you do not give the government more power over your life. Leftists across the country agreed this is a big improvement on outlandish religious claims that the world will end and you will be judged for your sin one day soon.
In addition, Lady Gaga pronounced Mike Pence’s Christianity as lacking morality, a claim immediately praised by the same people who agree that morality is relative and that you can’t judge people based on who they are or what they do. Continue reading
TO SOTU OR NOT TO SOTU: That is the question — President Donald Trump sent a letter to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi saying that, since there are no security concerns regarding the State of the Union speech, he would be “honoring” Pelosi’s earlier invitation to deliver the speech as scheduled on January 29. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi just responded with a letter saying he will not be allowed to deliver a State of the Union speech from the House floor until after the government has reopened.
I hope and pray this debacle wiggles a brain splinter of skepticism into the minds of those good-hearted, if sadly delusional Americans who still trust the Left Stream Media and who still proudly self-identify as Democrats.
This is way more than you needed to know or wanted to read/view. Just scan through and pick what catches your attention. I admit to having been fascinated by this. Maybe it’s because I’m a mom. Tucker does his usual excellent job, so I put that one first.
TEA: I just learned something useful. After my kidneys failed in 2016 (they’re doing much better now, thank you!), I switched from coffee to tea. Lately, I’ve been trying to cut down on the caffeine by alternating my favorite black tea with a variety of herbals. I’ve discovered I ❤ rooibos (aka, red bush) tea, which is the preferred beverage of Precious Ramotswe, one of my favorite female detectives.
Recently, I purchased some jasmine tea, which I thought would be a gourmet treat, but the first time I made it, it tasted unpleasantly bitter. But then I was reading a new series of murder mysteries that are set in a tea shop. The master brewer was giving a lesson and mentioned that delicate teas like jasmine should not be brewed for more than 2 minutes tops. He also explained that the right time to pour the boiling water is when the tiny bubbles are starting to give way to big bubbles. Continue reading
