The beginning of the latest editing we did, with explanations noted. Sent it to AP: Headline: Trump meeting with G-7 leaders after going on offensive By JONATHAN LEMIRE and JULIE PACE, Associated Press TAORMINA, Italy (AP) — In the Middle East, President Donald Trump [Note: Get to the meat. Avoid conjecture and opinion.] was feted with pageantry, the leaders of Saudi Arabia and Israel seemingly in competition to outdo the other with the warmth of their welcomes and the depth of their pledges of cooperation. [Note: No reason to inject opinion when the reporters could have used the space to report.] But in Europe, Trump has faced a far cooler reception and has been eager to go on the offensive. [Note: “Cajoled”? Really? “Scolding”? Really? Juxtaposing Article V with 9/11 without explaining the concerns hoe Article V might be misused? Really?] Cajoled on issues like climate change and NATO's defense pact, he's responded by scolding some of the United States' most loyal allies for not paying their fair share. He's also refused to explicitly back the mutual defense agreement that has been activated only once, during the darkest hours of September 2001. And now Trump is at the final stop of his maiden international trip, a [Note: Grueling for reporters or for Trump?] grueling nine-day, five-stop marathon. He will remain in Europe for theThe journey's last two days, this time inwill be spent at a picturesque coastal town in Sicily for a gathering of the G-7. …

rse, what dreck. These are not poor deluded people. They are malicious -- purposefully overlooking mainstream media manipulation. But, of course. Look at their funding sources. Didn’t see David Brock, but everyone else was there.

I’m going to vote with Ig on Hobbes putting little constraint on Leviathan government. He felt threatened during the English civil war.

My son says Arianna Grande has a wonderful voice with perfect pitch. Says she has matured. I suspect she matured yesterday.
Janet, Tom Brokaw is befuddled. “The roots” of Islamic terrorists arise of the fact they try kill those who choose different ways of life. The roots of why I would defend myself against radical Islamic terrorists arise from their desire to kill me.
I can see clearly now that the rain is gone.
More suspicious, Huma married a Chuck Schumer protege, destined to advance in Democrat politics. [Editor’s note: I declined to say up and coming]
the Coober Pedy on the other hand Drove there once with my wife and two friends. Didn’t see the bookstore. Did get a small but unusual color opal for a ring to match a necklace my brother made and gave to my wife. We were underground. When the dealer saw our stone he took us to a back room where the non-tourist opals were kept. Not worth a lot, but a very pretty stone.

Add Ben Rhodes and David Axelrod to the Democrat/MSM drumbeat, “Ignore the ISIS threat/What about human rights!”

AP’s Julie Pace following the narrative. sbwtweet: .@jpaceDC and @Acosta writing from the same script. Who wrote it? So much news from Saudi Arabia this trip--Had to go elsewhere to find it. Julie Pace‏Verified account @jpaceDC Trump lavishes praise on "magnificent" Saudi Arabia, but stays publicly silent on human rights

I just chastised the AP for filtering the substance out of Trump’s speech and for not linking to a transcript. Beitbart has one.

Marlene, Zuckerberg for president ain’t gonna save the Democrat Party. Usually, you refine your principles and then meet the public, not meet the public to define your principles. To paraphrase that great philosopher. You don’t like these principles? I got others.

We have wandered in the wilderness for more that 40 years Hadn’t thought about that. Stunningly true.

Yes, Ig, but an existential threat can lead to mutually useful alliances. And, sometimes it can lead to cultural change.

16s David! Nearly spit my coffee. Poor taste so funny and well done.
Ah, Clarice! Memories!
Judged a cursive writing contest for the school district -- 245 entries. From the article:Waters said that “to be sure I understood the difficulty” of the contest, he entered it himself and “judged myself.” He told students, “many of you beat me,” drawing chuckles from the audience. The judging criteria included several categories for the cursive writing appearance such as form, slant and spacing, plus the opinion writing such as the introduction, transitions between ideas, and the ending. Reading aloud from his essay in cursive writing titled “Why I write,” Waters said “....I write to know myself better. Words stick to the paper to help me think....The secret to writing is the same as for music, sports, and everything else. Practice, and the struggle gets easier to be smarter, wiser, stronger, better and happier....”
Get a load of this ridiculous article by Julie Pace of AP. MM, a day ending in ... well, you know. We didn’t even consider running that piece. This morning I blue-penciled the LeMire article on the ME/Europe trip before it was to be placed on the page. Then sent AP the original, marked up, and final edited copy. My intro to AP’s email: “It is fascinating and disappointing to see how the Associated Press weaves in its opinion.”
Do we know if Jenner is attracted to men or women? I don’t care. ’Sokay if you do.
What do you know about action.gop.com that is email soliciting contributions? I have a solicitation from the RNC returned with zero dollars that tells them I will contribute individually to compaigns until such time as McCain, Graham, Flake, Corker and the rest of the GOPe realize what is at stake.
For a future opinion piece: Unprofessional: The Associated Press White House correspondent Julie Pace taunted in a tweet, “President Donald Trump is facing a crisis he can’t manage with a tweet or a taunt.” She is the reporter AP depends upon for an accurate representation of Trump. Recently we published an article more accurate for removing, “furious”, “tumultuous”, “disastrous”, “bombshell”, beleaguered”, “struggling mightily” from the piece she and others filed.
