* Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu: I will name community after President Trump
WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump’s name sits atop buildings, on clothing labels and (for a short time) even on porterhouse steaks. Now, he could have a community in the Middle East named after him.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu toured the Golan Heights, disputed territory near Israel’s northern border that was seized from Syria during the Six Day war in 1967, and applauded Trump’s controversial decision last month that the U.S. would recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the area.
Netanyahu announced that to reward Trump’s decision, he would be introducing a resolution calling for a new community to be named after Trump.
Beautiful Quotes of Thomas Paine:
* Every science has for its basis a system of principles as fixed and unalterable as those by which the universe is regulated and governed. Man cannot make principles; he can only discover them.
* I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. ‘Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death.
* He that would make his own liberty secure, must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty, he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself.
* It is not a God, just and good, but a devil, under the name of God, that the Bible describes.

Kim Jong Un’s 12 bodyguards, who seamlessly jog in formation around his official Mercedes, have made the journey to Vietnam for Wednesday’s US-North Korea summit.
The suited guards shot to fame eight months ago when they jogged in formation around Kim’s car as it passed through Singapore during the first summit between Donald Trump and Kim, the first top-level meeting between the US and North Korea.

This year’s festivities — which includes a weekly parade of large, elaborate paper-mâché floats that often have a political message — mark the 146th year of the event. It attracts more than 600,000 spectators each year, according to the official parade website.
The Trump float is called “The Master-Drone” and was created by artist Fabrizio Galli. Galli has made similar sculptures that satirize political figures in the past, including North Korea’s Kim Jong-un and Russian President Vladimir Putin
“The Master-Drone” shows the president in golden battle armor, including a sword covered in blue birds fashioned after the Twitter logo and a gold crown. He also has a large clawed hand.
On the float, an American eagle can be seen on one of Trump’s shoulders while Putin’s head rests on the other. The Statue of Liberty appears on one of his knees.
