BOOM! Neil Cavuto Just Busted MSM – Plays 2003 Interview with Trump Against Iraq War (VIDEO)

BOOM! Neil Cavuto Just Busted MSM – Plays 2003 Interview with Trump Against Iraq War (VIDEO)

NBC hack and presidential debate moderator accused Donald Trump of supporting the Iraq War back in 2003.
Trump brought up his interview with Neil Cavuto in his defense.
After the debate Neil Cavuto played his 2003 interview with Donald Trump from January 28th of 2003. Here is Trump –
Donald Trump: Well I’m starting to think that people are much more focused now on the economy. They’re getting a little bit tired of hearing we’re going in, we’re not going in.  You know, what happened to the days of Douglas MacArthur?  I mean he would go in and attack.  He wouldn’t talk.  I mean we have to, you know, it’s sort of like either do it or don’t do it….   Well, he’s [Bush] either got to do something or not do something perhaps.  Because perhaps he shouldn’t be doing it yet.  Perhaps we should be waiting for the United Nations.  You know, he’s under a lot of pressure.  He’s, you know I think he is doing a very good job but of course if you look at the polls a lot of people are getting a little tired.  I think the, the Iraqi situation is a problem and I think the economy is a much bigger problem.
Trump was right and Lester Holt lied.

Milan CEO lies. Got her job through her US Senator father, Joe Manchin. BTW she also lied about her MBA

Mylan CEO misrepresents EpiPen profits in testimony

Mylan Chief Executive Heather Bresch’s assertion last week that the company made only $50 in profit on each EpiPen was off the mark.
The actual profit was $83 per pen — 66 percent more than the drugmaker’s leader told a House Committee on Oversight.
Mylan conceded the mistake in a regulatory filing on Monday that included an EpiPen “profitability analysis,” blaming the error in Bresch’s testimony on its inclusion of a 37.5 percent tax rate.
The company told the Wall Street Journal, which forced Mylan’s retraction, that the inclusion of taxes was standard for profitability analyses like the one Bresch presented to Congress.
Yet even that seemed disingenuous, considering Mylan had a 7.4 percent corporate tax rate last year and a negative-effective tax rate in the US.
The ultra-low tax rates were largely a function of Mylan’s incorporating in the Netherlands last year, despite the company maintaining its headquarters in Canonsburg, Pa.
Mylan acquired EpiPen — an injector of potentially life-saving epinephrine to counter allergic reactions — in 2007. It has since taken the price for a two-pack from $100 to more than $600.
Mylan controls more than 90 percent of the market
Bresch made $18 million last year.

Heather Bresch (née Manchin, born circa 1969)[4] is an American business executive and the daughter of Democratic U.S. Senator Joe Manchin. In 1992 she started working as a clerk in a factory owned by Mylan, a pharmaceuticals company, a job her father found for her. In 2007 she was accused of inflating her resume by claiming an unearned MBA degree that was given to her by West Virginia University's president, Michael Garrison, a politician, a friend of her father and a former lobbyist for and consultant to Mylan. She became the Chief Executive Officer of Mylan in 2012. She was named one of Fortune Magazine's "50 Most Powerful Women In Business" in 2014. In 2016 Mylan became embroiled in controversy after having raised the price of one of its products, the EpiPen, by nearly 500 percent since 2009.[5]

Early life and education

Bresch grew up in Fairmont and Farmington, West Virginia in a Roman Catholic family of partial Italian descent.[6] Her father, Joe Manchin, was a prominent politician throughout her childhood and as of 2015 was the senior United States Senator from West Virginia.[4]
Bresch attended Fairmont Senior High School in Fairmont, West Virginia[7] and graduated from West Virginia University (WVU) in 1991 with a bachelor's degree in political science and international relations.[8]

MBA controversy

In 2007 there was a controversy over an unearned MBA degree that Bresch had been claiming on her resume at that time. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported that Bresch had claimed to have an MBA degree from West Virginia University, but the university disputed that.[9] The university subsequently awarded her an EMBA despite her having completed only 26 of the required 48 credits. Her father was governor of the state of West Virginia at the time.[10]
In the ensuing controversy, the university announced in April 2008 that it would rescind Bresch's degree. Michael Garrison, WVU President at the time, was reported to be "a family friend and former business associate of Bresch"[11] and a former consultant and lobbyist for Mylan.[9]After a faculty vote of no confidence, Garrison and several university officials subsequently resigned.[10][12]

More Democrat run government corruption. Here De Blasio's Deputy Mayor pulls the "I can't remember" schtick.

De Blasio deputy has amnesia when it comes to shady nursing home deal

First Deputy Mayor Tony Shorris suffered numerous memory lapses about the Rivington Street nursing-home fiasco, telling investigators more than two dozen times that he couldn’t recall incidents, ­emails or details, records show.
Mayor Bill de Blasio’s right-hand man claimed he couldn’t remember a meeting with Stacey Cumberbatch, a city commissioner, or the content of any conversations they had about Rivington in 2014.
His schedule showed a July 25, 2014, meeting with Cumberbatch, then head of the Department of Citywide Administrative Services, where the deal was on the agenda.
Shorris also said he believed his decision that the property should remain a nursing home — rather than be sold on the open market — was communicated to the agency.
But he couldn’t recall how.
“I’ve asked myself that question. I do not remember the exact mechanism. I just don’t,” he told investigators for city Comptroller Scott Stringer, according to a transcript of the July 27 interview obtained by The Post through public-disclosure laws.
Asked if he had met with Cumberbatch about Rivington in 2014, Shorris replied, “Probably. I can’t say I remember exactly.”

For decades, the Lower East Side nursing home had been preserved as a nonprofit health care facility under two deed restrictions imposed by the city.
City Hall got involved in the matter in 2014 after Local 1199 of SEIU, the biggest union backer of de Blasio’s 2013 mayoral run, expressed concern that a sale would cost jobs at the site.
In 2015, the property was sold to a for-profit health care firm, the Allure Group, and later that year, the city lifted both property restrictions in exchange for $16.1 million.
But the site was sold again in February 2016 to a luxury housing developer at a $72 million profit — resulting in four investigations of how things went awry.
The interview transcript shows investigators grilled Shorris about his claim that he didn’t learn about the February 2016 sale until after it happened, even though ­emails show members of his staff discussed the pending sale in December 2015.
When investigators tried to press Shorris over the two-month lapse, his lawyer, G. Michael Bellinger, repeatedly intervened.
”He already answered that question. Don’t answer it again,” Bellinger said. “I’m instructing him not to answer that question.”
A City Hall spokesman said Shorris will be testifying at a City Council hearing on the Rivington House deal Thursday.

Colombia Farc leader apologies to victims at peace signing. Well, isn't that just precious!

Colombia Farc leader apologises to victims at peace signing

The leader of the Farc rebel group has apologised to the victims of Colombia's armed conflict which ended with Monday's signing of a peace deal.
Colombian leader Juan Manuel Santos and the Farc rebel commander known as Timochenko signed the deal in an emotional ceremony on Monday evening. 
"I would like to ask for forgiveness for all the pain that we may have caused during this war," he said. 
The guests at the ceremony in Cartagena cheered when Timochenko apologised. 
Some shouted "Yes, we can!" while Farc members and heads of state from Latin America rose to their feet on the stage and applauded.
The ceremony which marks the end of 52 years of armed conflict was broadcast live and shown on giant screens in the capital, Bogota, and other large cities.
Farc rebels gathered in a number of camps also followed the broadcast.

There was so much symbolism in this historic signing - a pen made from a bullet to sign the peace deal, the singing of Beethoven's Ode to Joy, everyone dressed in white. 
President Santos said this historic moment was a message from Colombia to the world: no more war. "No more war," the crowd chanted in return.
This was the first time Timochenko addressed the nation live on TV. He promised the Farc would give up its guns, and more than that, he asked for forgiveness. 
It earned him a standing ovation. That would have been unthinkable not long ago. 
But after 50 years of war, many Colombians still aren't ready to forgive. As President Santos put it, the hard work of building peace now lies ahead.

'Welcome to democracy'

Under the deal, the Farc will now become a political party.
The rebels will take part in legislative elections in 2018, and - as part of the peace deal - they will be guaranteed a minimum of 10 seats in Congress for their first legislative period.
President Santos addressed the Farc rebels directly and praised their decision to lay down arms.

"Swapping bullets for votes and weapons for ideas is the bravest and most intelligent decision that any rebel group could take," he said. 
"When you begin your return to society (...) as head of state of the homeland that we all love, I welcome you to democracy." 
Timochenko said that the rebels would not take up arms anymore.
"War is over, we're starting to build peace," he said before his speech was interrupted by the sound of Colombian Air Force fighter jets flying over the venue.
Looking up startled, Timochenko's worried expression then turned into a smile and he joked: "Well, this time they came to pay their respects to peace and not to drop bombs."

Public vote

The peace deal was reached after four years of formal peace talks in the Cuban capital, Havana, which were preceded by two years of secret talks.

Image captionColombians will be asked to reject or accept the deal in a public vote on Sunday 2 October
But before it can come into force it will have to be approved by Colombians in a public vote scheduled for Sunday.
While recent polls suggest that a majority of Colombians back the deal, there has been vocal opposition to the agreement. 
Those in the "no" camp, which is led by former President Alvaro Uribe, say that they do not trust the Farc to stick to their promises. 
They are also angry that Farc leaders will be entering Congress without serving time in jail for crimes committed during the conflict. 
President Santos has stressed that there is "no Plan B". He said that if the Colombian people were to reject the peace deal, the country would face more conflict.
