Finally tying aid to actually being cooperative and helping American interests.
Via Fox News:
The Trump administration has decided to withhold millions in military aid to Pakistan as the president accuses the Muslim-majority nation of harboring terrorists and telling “lies” to the United States.
“The United States does not plan to spend the $255 million in [Fiscal Year] 2016 Foreign Military Financing for Pakistan at this time,” a National Security Council official told Fox News on Monday.
The official added, “The president has made clear that the United States expects Pakistan to take decisive action against terrorists and militants on its soil, and that Pakistan’s actions in support of the South Asia Strategy will ultimately determine the trajectory of our relationship, including future security assistance.”
The Trump administration will continue to “review Pakistan’s level of cooperation,” the official said.

Should I Really Join Facebook? (Priceless)
When I bought my Blackberry, I thought about the 30-year business I ran with 1800 employees, all without a cell phone that plays music, takes videos, pictures and communicates with Facebook and Twitter.
I signed up, under duress, for Twitter and Facebook, so my seven kids, their spouses, my 13 grand kids and 2 great- grand-kids could communicate with me in the modern way. I figured I could handle something as simple as Twitter with only 140 characters of space.
My phone was beeping every three minutes with the details of everything except the bowel movements of the entire next generation.
I am not ready to live like this I keep my cell phone in the garage in my golf bag.
The kids bought me a GPS for my last birthday because they say I get lost every now and then going over to the grocery store or library. I keep that in a box under my tool bench with the Bluetooth [it’s red] phone I am supposed to use when I drive. I wore it once and was standing in line at Barnes and Noble talking to my wife and everyone in the nearest 50 yards was glaring at me. I had to take my hearing aid out to use it, and I got a little loud.
I mean, the GPS looked pretty smart on my dash board, but the lady inside that gadget was the most annoying, rudest person I had run into in a long time. Every 10 minutes, she would sarcastically say, “Re-calc-u-lating.” You would think that she could be nicer. It was like she could barely tolerate me. She would let go with a deep sigh and then tell me to make a U-turn at the next light. Then, if I made a right turn instead. Well, it was not a good relationship…
When I get really lost now, I call my wife and tell her the name of the cross streets and, while she is starting to develop the same tone as Gypsy, the GPS lady, at least she loves me
To be perfectly frank, I am still trying to learn how to use the cordless phones in our house. We have had them for 4 years, but I still haven’t figured out how I lose three phones all at once and have to run around digging under chair cushions, checking bathrooms, and the dirty laundry baskets when the phone rings.
The world is just getting too complex for me.
They even mess me up every time I go to the grocery store..
You would think they could settle on something themselves, but this sudden “Paper or Plastic?” Every time I check out, just knocks me for a loop. I bought some of those cloth reusable bags to avoid looking confused, but I never remember to take them with me.
Now I toss it back to them.
When they ask me, “Paper or plastic?” I just say, “Doesn’t matter to me. I am bi-sacksual.” Then it’s their turn to stare at me with a blank look.
I was recently asked if I tweet. I answered, no, but I do fart a lot.”
(P…S. I know some of you are not over 70. I sent it to you to allow you to forward it to those who are. I figured your sense of humor could handle it….)
We senior citizens don’t need any more gadgets. The TV remote and the garage door remote are about all we can handle safely.
If Indiana lawmaker Milo Smith has his way, the Indianapolis Colts will be forced to refund every single fan offended by players who kneeled during the Nation Anthem.
An Indiana lawmaker is filing legislation that would require the Indianapolis Colts to offer fans refunds if Colts players kneel during the national anthem at home games.
Rep. Milo Smith, R-Columbus, said his bill would allow fans who feel disrespected by the kneeling to ask for a refund during the first quarter.
Smith and his daughter were attending the Colts’ September game against the Cleveland Browns when a group of Colts players decided to kneel along with about 200 other NFL players across the country.
He was offended but stayed at the game.
“I’m pretty patriotic, and it didn’t sit right with me,” said Smith.
“To me when they take a knee during the national anthem, it’s not respecting the national anthem or our country,” Smith added.
“Our government isn’t perfect, but it’s still the best country in the world and I think we need to be respectful of it.”
The team came under fire on October 8th when Vice-President Pence walked out of the Indianapolis Colts-San Francisco 49ers game after nearly two dozen 49ers kneeled during the National Anthem.
Pence had this to say after exiting Lucas Oil Stadium.
“I left today’s Colts game because @POTUS and I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem. At a time when so many Americans are inspiring our nation with their courage, resolve, and resilience…While everyone is entitled to their own opinions, I don’t think it’s too much to ask NFL players to respect the Flag and our National Anthem. I stand with @POTUS Trump, I stand with our soldiers, and I will always stand for our Flag and our National Anthem.”

THIS IS DEFINITELY A “MUST SEE VIDEO…………Papa Mike
Rep. Trey Gowdy demanded House investigators receive access to key documents in connection with the salacious Trump-Russia dossier – including forms from FBI interviews – and called out irregularities in the Hillary Clinton email probe.
In a Fox News exclusive, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes went after the Department of Justice and the FBI for its “failure to fully produce” documents related to the dossier, saying “at this point it seems the DOJ and FBI need to be investigating themselves.”
Nunes demanded all records be provided by Jan. 3, emphasizing that subpoenas went out on Aug. 24.
Gowdy (R-S.C.), chairman of the Oversight Committee, stressed Thursday that an investigation is only as good as the access to documents and witnesses. He said lawmakers cannot interview FBI agents like Peter Strzok and Lisa Page without first getting the documents.
“This has taken longer than it should,” he said, adding that “almost everything” was done differently during the investigation into Clinton’s private server.
He conceded that the FBI had a “difficult year” since it had to investigate a candidate in the “throes of a presidential race” but he stressed the need for oversight and a full accounting of what occurred.
Gowdy questioned whether the decision was made not to prosecute Clinton months before it was announced by then-FBI Director James Comey.
“If you have made the decision not to charge someone in May of 2016 before you have interviewed two dozen witnesses, before you have interviewed the target of the investigation, then you’re going to have to explain how you reached that decision not to charge,” he said, adding that he believes the FBI and DOJ are “big enough to withstand those questions.”
