The Saudis are in the midst of political turmoil. An anti-corruption purge took place this past weekend, resulting in many arrests: [emphasis added to quotes]

President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump arrived in Saudi Arabia today.
Melania struck a blow for female equality by not wearing a veil, by wearing pants, and by shaking hands with the Saudi king! Isn’t she lovely?
Recently Donald Trump sat for an interview with reporters from the New York Times. The entire interview is well worth reading, for those who are not yet familiar with Trump’s foreign policy positions. It’s recommended that you read the transcript rather than the interpretation of “journalists”.
What’s especially notable is Trump’s insistence upon putting THIS COUNTRY first. It’s about time that we had a candidate for the presidency who loves his country above all others and wants what’s best for the United States before considering what’s good for other nations.
Some states intend to “explore” ways to block those on terror watch lists from buying guns. Already, according to this story, the state of New Jersey blocks people on the list from purchasing guns, something which would seem to be unconstitutional. Consider the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution:
A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.
Owning a gun is a Constitutional right, not just a privilege, like driving a car. In addition, the Constitution requires “due process”, which is not something that occurs when someone is added to terror watch lists by anonymous bureaucrats.

And so it begins. How shall it end?
When he’s not dropping groundhogs, the new mayor of New York City,
Warren Wilhelm Jr. * Bill de Blasio, is thinking up new ways to celebrate diversity, as should be expected from a progressive mayor.

Now we hear that Obama is “pivoting” away from the debacle that is Obamacare as well as the many scandals in his administration. One issue to which he plans to pivot is “immigration reform”. In other words, amnesty–preferably for all “undocumented immigrants”, preferably with citizenship included so that all former illegal aliens can vote, preferably without having to secure the border, so that more and more potential voters can invade our country and turn the whole place “blue”. You might wonder what that photo up there has to do with “immigration reform”. Well, I’ll tell you:

Is it This Man?
Vladimir Putin, Russia's Prime Minister
Coming on the heals of Wikileaks’ document dump, and its suspiciously cherry-picked information, especially targeting Hillary Clinton and her diplomatic spy corps, it is noted that there was no information disparaging Obama. It is as though the little quips were embarrassing, but most wouldn’t cause a diplomatic incident unless those exposed were “thin skinned.” After all, most characterizations or suspected government activities have been written previously by one or several journalists. There were very few surprises in the contents of the diplomatic correspondence.
