Leaving aside all the shocking lapses committed by the genius that we already know of, even the slavishly chauvinistic Republican Party is now expressing some concern over Trump’s admission that he would accept “dirt” on his opponents, if offered by foreign powers. Clearly, the idea of quid pro quo is lost on the “greatest president since Lincoln”, a man described by Republican activist Rick Wilson as a “moral and physical coward”. Perhaps dear old JC might like to reflect on this the next time he tries to defend the indefensible.
Phalang Pracharat, he said, had already submitted its ministerial candidates to Prime Minister General Prayut Chan-o-cha and is awaiting his approval. The list has also been submitted to the Cabinet Secretariat, so candidates’ qualifications can be checked, he said. The setting up of the Cabinet has taken such a long time because of horse-trading and disagreements among party MPs. Sontirat admitted that conflicts have occurred, but he said this is common given that Phalang Pracharat has more than 100 MPs. Sontirat refused to say if installing Prayut and Prawit in leadership positions would prove that Phalang Prachart was a means for the junta to retain power.
Recently he was telling us that he’s “pro-life”, yet it doesn’t bother him in the slightest that his hero Donald Trump, against the wishes of the senate and congress, is continuing to give military aid to Saudi Arabia to murder women and children in Yemen. But then, these “pro-life” people don’t care about what happens to children after they’re born. And while Wilcox goes into endless tirades against Muslims, his Saudi friends continue to sponsor terrorism. Of the 19 suicide bombers on 9/11, 15 were Saudi.
(Photo from Facebook @NangMweSanPage)A Myanmar model and doctor says she will appeal against a medical council decision to revoke her licence for posting photos of herself on Facebook in revealing outfits and bikinis. The Myanmar Medical Council suspended the medical licence of Nang Mwe San in a letter to her dated June 3, saying she dressed inappropriately. Mwe San has been a general physician for four years, but stopped practising two years ago to pursue a modelling career. “Did I dress in sexy outfits when I was meeting my patients? Never.”The Myanmar Medical Council did not respond to a request for comments.

However, as US-Iranian tensions soared, Trump dismissed previous threats by Tehran that in case of conflict it could block the Hormuz Strait -- a narrow seaway vital to the world's oil supplies. Speaking hours after the US military released grainy footage it said showed an Iranian patrol boat removing an "unexploded limpet mine" from one of the tankers, Trump said "Iran did do it." "You know they did it because you saw the boat," Trump told the "Fox and Friends" show. Doing so, would disrupt traffic of oil tankers between the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Oman, which leads to the Indian Ocean and global export routes. They've been told in very strong terms," Trump told Fox News.

(Bangkok Post photo)The Government Lottery Office (GLO) is offering a reward of 1,000 baht for information leading to the arrest and conviction of vendors selling overpriced lottery tickets. Solving the problem of overpriced lottery tickets was one of the first challenges Gen Prayut Chan-o-cha took on after he staged the coup in May 2014. Gen Prayut appointed Gen Apirat Kongsompong as the GLO chairman and a semblance of normality returned to lottery ticket pricing for a few months. But before long, the Byzantine network of agents and wholesalers began to assert itself and tickets priced above face value returned. A Bangkok Post staffer who visited Yaowarat this week reported seeing one vendor openly advertising 10 tickets for 1,000 baht and 15 tickets for 1,650 baht.

With tensions spiralling between Iran and the United States, the European Union called for "maximum restraint" and UN chief Antonio Guterres warned against a Gulf confrontation. But Iran labelled the attacks "suspicious," as its supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei rebuffed overtures by Abe to open talks with US President Donald Trump. "Everything is OK," said one of the vessel's "chief officers", presenting himself as Russian and thanking Iran for its "hospitality." "Taken as a whole, these unprovoked attacks present a clear threat to international peace and security," Pompeo said. The US called Thursday for the UN Security Council to confront the "clear threat" posed by Iran.
