Trump's executive order immigration ban causes chaos.

Protesters didn't care when Obama was bombing and killing the families, friends and neighbors of those refugees. There's not such thing as the antiwar left. It's just anti-right.

All-corn diet turns hamsters into cannibals.
"Researchers in France have discovered that a monotonous diet of corn causes hamsters to exhibit some unusual behavior -- cannibalism. âoeImproperly cooked maize-based diets have been associated with higher rates of homicide, suicide and cannibalism in humans," the researchers point out, and they believe it's the absence of vitamin B3 which is affecting the hamsters' nervous system and triggering dementia-like behavior."
Eat your B3.

Foreign Policy

Trump's feud with Mexico has caused the peso to plummet.

Media

Mainstream Hollywood and the mainstream media are enemies of freedom.

War

Blocking Syrian refuges, Trump's safe zones in Syria requires an escalation of US in the Syrian war.
"This idea is a disaster waiting to happen, and could augur the unraveling of the President’s “America First” foreign policy, which supposedly abjures regime change operations in the Middle East and elsewhere. In 2013 testimony submitted to Congress by then chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Martin Dempsey, the reality of what this would have to mean was outlined:
“Thousands of U.S. ground forces would be needed, even if positioned outside Syria, to support those physically defending the zones. A limited no-fly zone coupled with US ground forces would push the costs over one billion dollars per month.”
John Kerry, citing Department of Defense estimates, testified that “safe zones” would require up to 30,000 troops on the ground." 
More casualties to come.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention "basically reported that there was nothing in our medicine cabinet to treat this lady," report co-author Dr. Randall Todd told the Reno Gazette-Journal."

 "The U.S. dropped 26,171 bombs last year, 3,027 more than 2015.
According to an analysis of Defense Department data from the Council on Foreign Relations, a non-partisan think tank, the majority of the bombs were dropped in Iraq and Syria. The U.S. leads an international coalition fighting the Islamic State group in both countries and has carried out air operations in attempt to reduce the area controlled by the terrorist organization.
Nearly the same amount of bombs were dropped in Syria (12,192) and Iraq (12,095) last year."
