  • Ban­non v Kush­n­er pow­er strug­gle makes Fri­days inter­est­ing at W.H. — “A well-placed D.C. source says it’s no coin­ci­dence that Pres­i­dent Trump’s anti-Mus­lim “trav­el ban” broke last Fri­day after senior pres­i­den­tial advis­er Jared Kush­n­er, an obser­vant Jew, had checked out for the day. The sit­u­a­tion is described by our spy as “a pow­er strug­gle between two senior advis­ers” Kush­n­er and for­mer Bre­it­bart chief, Steve Ban­non.
    “Every­one is work­ing 24/7, but Jared, because of his reli­gious views, not only can’t be in the White House, but can’t be on his phone, can’t dri­ve his car, can’t lis­ten to the radio — he can’t be reached,” says our whistle­blow­er. Obser­vant Jews are pro­hib­it­ed from work­ing between sun­set Fri­day and sun­set Sat­ur­day.”
  • For Ger­many, Trump Pos­es a Prob­lem With No Clear Solu­tion — “We still don’t real­ly have a clue who we are in the world and who we want to be,” said Jana Puglierin of the Ger­man Coun­cil on For­eign Rela­tions. That makes it dif­fi­cult to face increas­ing­ly urgent ques­tions, she said, over “what role we should play, who Ger­many is, how dom­i­nant do we want to be.”
