    TCM Premieres

    Wed., 4-9 under "Fan Programmers" (picked by Glenn Taranto) 12:00 AM (times ET) 93 min war Went the Day Well? (1942) An English village is occupied by disguised German paratroopers as an advance post for a planned invasion. Dir: [Alberto] Cavalcanti LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW: D: Alberto Cavalcanti. Cast: Leslie Banks, Elizabeth Allan, Frank Lawton, Mervyn Johns, Basil Sydney, David Farrar, Marie Lohr, C.V. France, Thora Hird. "Wartime melodrama laced with humor about Germans invading a rural British community. Too sly and well written to be dismissed as mere propaganda; a most intriguing time capsule. Screenplay by John Dighton, Angus MacPhail, and Diana Morgan from a Graham Greene story. And remember: this story, told as a flashback at the end of WW2, was actually made at its peak, when the outcome was far from certain." Article here:

  10. 7 Questions We Would Have Asked Donald Trump At His Canceled Press Conference- President-elect Donald Trump promised a press conference Thursday to clarify the role he would have with his international business entanglements after he becomes president. He canceled. The transition team said Monday that Trump is delaying his "announcement" until January. Later that night, Trump took to his favorite medium to go around the filter — Twitter — and made some news about his plans: It’s been 140 days since Donald Trump’s last press conference. In the meantime, he’s tweeted 1,461 times. Why does this matter?Unlike other ways of getting messages out, press conferences hold public officials more accountable to the American people because they have to answer questions in an uncontrolled environment.....

    Israel passes controversial 'Jewish nation-state' law Law defines the country as Jewish homeland, further marginalising 1.8 million Palestinian citizens of Israel. "......The legislation, adopted by 62 votes to 55, makes Hebrew the country's national language and defines the establishment of Jewish communities as being in the national interest. The bill also strips Arabic of its designation as an official language, downgrading it to a "special status" that enables its continued use within Israeli institutions. Highlights Self-determination is "exclusive" to the Jewish people/Israel is the Jewish nation's historical homeland Views the establishment of Jewish-only settlements as being in the national interest Arabic will be demoted from official language to a "special" status Calls the "undivided" city of Jerusalem Israel's capital National symbols include the Israeli flag, menorah, Jewish holidays, Hatikva anthem, the Hebrew calendar, and Israel's Independence Day It stipulates that "Israel is the historic homeland of the Jewish people and they have an exclusive right to national self-determination in it". It also states that an undivided Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. "This is a defining moment in the annals of Zionism and the history of the state of Israel,"........... ....the Legal Center for Arab Minority Rights in Israel, called the law a bid to advance "ethnic superiority by promoting racist policies". "The Jewish nation-state law features key elements of apartheid, which is not only immoral but also absolutely prohibited under international law," said Hassan Jabareen, general director of Adalah. "By defining sovereignty and democratic self-rule as belonging solely to the Jewish people - wherever they live around the world - Israel has made discrimination a constitutional value and has professed its commitment to favouring Jewish supremacy as the bedrock of institutions."........

    Democratic Senators Slam Trump's Pick To Run Consumer Financial Protection Bureau .....Democrats say she has no financial industry regulation experience. And they say she's been involved in some of the worst debacles of the Trump administration, including the response to Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico and the White House's zero-tolerance policy which resulted in the detention and separation of immigrant children and parents at the border. ........Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J., said he has obtained emails showing that Kraninger was an architect of the administration's "botched" response to hurricane damage in Puerto Rico. "Three and a half million American citizens who just happen to call Puerto Rico their home, but they are American citizens like you and I are, faced their darkest hour," he said. "And instead of turning to help them you pinched pennies. And worst of all, I think you treated them as second-class citizens. "That does not give me the faith that when you have to stand up for seniors, service members, students, homeowners against some of the biggest financial institutions in this country that you'll do that.....

    Lloyd 👍‏ @lloydleefrancis 8h8 hours ago Putin’s endgame isn’t keeping Trump. It’s the damage Trump has inflicted to America’s democracy & the destabilisation/ fraction of American society. Not to mention U.S international isolation; alienating its closest allies/NATO. The U.S is no longer the leader of the free world.

    The Trump and Putin Show

    Guilty: Donald Trump betrayed his country in Helsinki. It wasn’t the first time- Trump asked for Russia’s help to get elected, and Putin confirmed it while standing right next to him ".....We know what the Russians did and how they did it. And we know that Trump is guilty. We saw it for months during the campaign. We’ve seen it daily since he’s been president. And we saw it again on Monday in Helsinki. He’s guilty of lying over and over and over again about the connections between himself and his campaign and Russians. And now we know why it was so necessary for him to lie about his contacts with Russians: Agents of the GRU, the Russian military intelligence agency, were actively aiding his campaign for president on the orders of Vladimir Putin, because Russian intelligence agents don’t do a single thing unless it’s on orders from Putin himself. Putin practically came out and admitted it at the press conference in Helsinki. It's incredible, isn't it, to think how far this country has fallen, that we have a president who was elected with the assistance of the intelligence service of a hostile foreign power, literally a Manchurian President?......... (good summing up)

    The New York Times‏Verified account @nytimes 18h18 hours ago From the Start, Trump Has Muddied a Clear Message: Putin Interfered In January 2017, Donald Trump was shown evidence that Vladimir Putin personally ordered pre-election hacking. He has since publicly questioned it. ------------------------------------------------------- "....... In the run-up to this week’s ducking and weaving, Mr. Trump has done all he can to suggest other possible explanations for the hacks into the American political system. His fear, according to one of his closest aides who spoke on the condition of anonymity, is that any admission of even an unsuccessful Russian attempt to influence the 2016 vote raises questions about the legitimacy of his presidency. .......... Intelligence officials have described it to Congress as a chief threat to American security. Just last week, Mr. Coats said that current cyberthreats were “blinking red” and called Russia the “most aggressive foreign actor, no question.” “And they continue their efforts to undermine our democracy,” he said. Christopher A. Wray, the F.B.I. director, also stood firm...... Almost as soon as he took office, Mr. Trump began casting doubts on the intelligence on Russia’s election interference, though never taking issue with its specifics. He dismissed it broadly as a fabrication by Democrats and part of a “witch hunt” against him. He raised unrelated issues, including the state of investigations into Mrs. Clinton’s home computer server, to distract attention from the central question of Russia’s role — and who, if anyone, in Mr. Trump’s immediate orbit may have worked with them......

    Where Is Barack Obama?

    Michelle Obama wades into the midterms w/ voter registration initiative- The new initiative will be nonpartisan, frustrating some Democrats who’d like the former first lady to hit the campaign trail for candidates. .......The first PSA will go out Thursday, with more in the process of being lined up, featuring other prominent activists and players. The group will be incorporated as a nonprofit, separate from the Obama Foundation, the personal offices of Barack and Michelle Obama, and Citizen 44, the LLC that the former president himself pays for to handle his own political involvement. Named “When We All Vote,” it will be stocked with prominent Obama alumni,..... the former first lady, though, the voter registration drive is the best way to take on a prominent role without engaging directly in electoral politics, which she has little affinity for. And it fits with a larger theory about political engagement that she shares with her husband: The more people who vote, they believe, the better it will be for Democrats overall. Obama will hit the campaign trail for candidates, but he also has been stressing nonpartisan engagement ....
