IMO, Omarosa is a bullshit artist.  Note she doesn't say that she has the tapes, or that she has even seen them.

She's got a book to sell.  She was in this for the money from the start, she did nothing while she was actually at the White House and now she's cashing in.  Book releases on Wednesday, so she's doing whatever she can to stay in the headlines until then.

Not that I don't believe Trump is not, in fact, horrifically racist or at the very least comfortable with horrific racism.  I just don't think Omarosa has any proof of anything she is saying, and her credibility is pretty questionable, to put it mildly.

Trump's latest Twitter tantrum on this topic is hilarious btw.

He admits that

1) Omarosa was unqualified (supririsng exactly no-one), and once in office she was actually terrible at her job
2) That she only got the job beacause she praised him (again, no surprises)
3) That Trump was not even aware that she was fired.

I mean, it's damning stuff.  You can see why Trump's lawyers don't want him to meet with Mueller.  Trump always looks for the tactical, short-term advantage, and when he does so, it' often at his own expense, because he's a shameless liar and whatever story he spins undermines any larger narratives about him ("the best people", anyone?)

Why is even physics?  Time travellers will only use it against us.

Make as much money as possible while paying as few people as possible, as little as possible.

So, yeah.  Abject failure.

My guess is they are planning on unloading the contract or business onto some sucker, very soon.  With 9 months.

There may not even be a business in 9 months.  Brexit is coming, and no-one has a fucking clue how badly it might bugger up EU student numbers.

Turkey financially supports the rebels in Syria.

With Turkish money being worth less, now the rebel fighters have less, and Ankara is less inclined to spend their remaining currency on them.  This will ultimately make it easier for the Assad regime and its Russian backers to defeat them.

I'm not saying Trump is a puppet with Putin' hand up his arse, but it is amazing how he keeps doing these things which help Russia's foreign policy objectives.

So, it's finally happened.  Management are restructuring the department.  Among the highlights of our new deal:

- A £4k pay cut
- Reduction of staff to a single person per shift
- Rota changes that will involve working 4 nights a week and, once a month, 7 days or nights in a row.
- That we still do all our existing duties except those with regard to safeguarding
- That staff on-site will have to move out
- That we will be effectively demoted to "residential assistant" roles from our current roles.
- 3 people will be made redundant due to lower staffing needs

As a federal judge heard arguments on Thursday seeking to halt the deportations of several Central American women requesting asylum, he learned that a woman and her daughter at the center of the case had been ushered from a Texas shelter, driven to an airport and put on a plane to El Salvador. The judge ordered the government to bring the two back immediately.

The judge, Emmet G. Sullivan of the District of Columbia, criticized the government for deporting the pair just as they were seeking justice in court. In ordering the government to undo the deportation, he threatened to hold government officials, from Attorney General Jeff Sessions on down, in contempt, said a lawyer for the plaintiffs.

According to the A.C.L.U., Carmenís husband had regularly raped, stalked and threatened to kill her for two decades. But she never reported him to the police in El Salvador, having seen other women do so only to be killed by their husbands in retaliation. After she left her husband, taking her daughter with her, she claimed gang members in town targeted her as a single mother, threatening to kill her and her daughter unless she paid them a monthly sum.

Meanwhile, the EU has said there will be penalties for those companies which abide by the new US sanctions.

It's basically turning into a trade war.  Another trade war.

I have no real thoughts on the primary results, but I thought I'd pop in just to remind everyone that:

a) there has been no action at the Federal level to counteract any possible hacking during this election, and
b) the Democrats will need, on average, to get 10% more votes than the Republicans to take Congress, due to gerrymandering

Another member of the Trump transition team who is so crooked they need a corkscrew to be able to sit down.  Who could've guessed? This investigation also implicates Tom Price, the Secretary of HHS until last September.

No-one wants to believe it can really be that bad.  Everyone right now, with the exception of certain mid-tier civil servants, people with experience in customs and ports and people who handle anything that has to do with European based supply chains, is completely deluding themselves.
