Two Pruitt Aides Resign as E.P.A. Ethics Questions Continue – The New York Times Should have been Sec. of Transportation – good at throwing aides under the bus!

Before joining the agency, both Ms. Hupp and Ms. Greenwalt worked for Mr. Pruitt in Oklahoma, where he served as attorney general.

This is really scandalous!

While Israel kills a Palestinian young man in the village of Nabi Saleh, not far from Ramallah. The PA forces arrest around thirty people sitting in a cafe in the city center of Ramallah. Not only were the detainees accused of not fasting, but also with gambling.
