via Sarah Huckabee Sanders says Nancy Pelosi ‘should smile’ more – AOL News

Just grin and bear it, Nancy.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders during an appearance on CNN took a swipe at House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s seemingly sour expression during President Trump’s first State of the Union address — and she used one the internet’s most widely hated phrases to do it.

“The room last night was grossly divided, I’ve never seen Nancy Pelosi’s face like that,” host Chris Cuomo said.

In a rare contribution by an Israeli official to Arab media, IDF spokesman Brig. Gen. Ronen Manelis warned in a op-ed on a Lebanese opposition website that a war could break out between the two countries if Iran and Hezbollah’s presences in the country continue to grow.

“Lebanon has become — both by its own actions and omissions and by a blind eye from many members of the international community — one large missile factory,” Manelis wrote for the Lebanese website Ahewar.

via How Can It Be Right To Kill 20-Week-Old Babies In The Womb?

It is almost unimaginable that 46 senators would vote against the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. But that’s just what happened yesterday, with two Republicans joining 44 Democrats to cast their truly vile vote.

We’re talking about outlawing abortions for babies 20 weeks old or more, and even then, with exceptions for abortions deemed necessary “to save the life of the pregnant woman, or . . . when the pregnancy is the result of rape or incest.”

How could 46 senators (including all but two Democrats) vote against this humane act?

via North Korea hits back at US, calls Trump administration ‘racist’ following State of the Union – AOL News

GENEVA, Jan 31 (Reuters) – North Korea struck back at the United States on Wednesday, accusing the Trump administration of being a billionaires’ club that harbors a “policy of racism” while denying freedom of the press and health coverage to citizens.

The “White Paper on Human Rights Violations in the U.S. in 2017,” was issued by the Institute of International Studies in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) and circulated by its diplomatic mission in Geneva.

It did not refer to the row between North Korea and the United States and its allies over Pyongyang’s nuclear and missile programs, or to the international sanctions imposed against it.

Democrats booed President Donald Trump, with at least one member of Congress shouting “that’s not true,” when the president outlined his proposed cuts to legal immigration.
