Hey Hey, Donald J, how many kids did you kill today?

Feds say a sixth migrant child died while in the care of authorities in September

By Dianne Gallagher and Kate Sullivan, CNN

May 22, 2019

(CNN) - A 10-year-old migrant child died while in the care of the Department of Health and Human Services' Office of Refugee Resettlement in September of last year, according to department spokesman Mark Weber.

The girl, whose death was not reported publicly for nearly eight months, is now the sixth migrant child known to have recently died after journeying to the US and being apprehended by federal authorities. Her death predates the five children known to have died.

In a statement, Weber said the 10-year-old girl entered the office's care in San Antonio in March 2018. She had a history of congenital heart defects.
He said the child had surgery complications that left her in a comatose state. She was transported to a nursing facility in Phoenix and later transported to Children's Hospital in Omaha, Nebraska, where she died due to fever and respiratory distress on September 29, according to Weber.

When asked by CNN why HHS did not announce the death of the 10-year-old girl at the time, Weber said they had prepared a statement at the time of her death but reporting requirements include notifying "appropriate officials" and "media is not part of the list."

The girl's death appears to be different from those of the other children who have died after being apprehended by federal authorities in that she had a history of medical problems before coming into custody.

CBS first reported the child's death.

Since December, five children are known to have died after arriving at the US border from Guatemala. Two young children died weeks apart in December in government custody, spurring congressional hearings on the matter.

Seven-year-old Jakelin Caal Maquin died of sepsis, a bacterial infection, in an El Paso, Texas, hospital in December, two days after she had been detained with her father. Weeks later, 8-year-old Felipe Gómez Alonzo died of the flu complicated by sepsis while in Customs and Border Protection custody.

Homeland Security and CBP officials announced a series of new procedures following the deaths of the two children, including secondary medical checks on all children with a focus those under age 10.

Earlier this week, a 16-year-old Guatemalan boy died in government custody, according to CBP.

Carlos Gregorio Hernandez Vasquez was apprehended and processed near Hidalgo, Texas, on May 13 before being transferred to the Weslaco Border Patrol Station Sunday, the agency said in a statement. He was found unresponsive Monday morning, the agency said, and the cause of death is unknown.

Last week, a 2-year-old boy from Guatemala died at a hospital in El Paso. The boy had suffered from complications of pneumonia, and was not identified and not in US custody at the time of his death, Tekandi Paniagua, the Guatemalan consul general in Del Rio, Texas, told CNN. He had previously been in US custody.

Last month, 16-year-old Juan de León Gutiérrez died in a Texas children's hospital days after arriving at an Office of Refugee Resettlement shelter. The cause of his death hasn't been reported. A source close to the situation said at the time that the youth had shown showed signs of distress the day after he arrived in Brownsville, Texas.

Oscar winner calls Trump the greatest president since Lincoln

That is actor Jon Voight.

I'm not talking about what Voight said because for me that's not the point. The point is I don't understand is why news media always seems to want to publicize what some celebrity says, whether it's a movie star, a sports figure, or whatever. Why is what a celebrity says, pro or con, more important than what the guy who lives down the street says? Unless he's running for office, why would anybody care? I certainly don't.

If Trump really wants to lock up Hillary, I know how he can easily do it. Just hire her. Look how many other big names he's hired got locked up . . .

Trump attacks Nasa and claims the moon is 'a part' of Mars

President tweeted Nasa should focus on ‘Mars (of which the Moon is a part)’ over going to the moon, a reversal of previous remarks

June 7, 2019

Followers of astronomy were in for a surprise on Friday, when Donald Trump announced that the moon is part of Mars.

In a tweet, apparently commenting on his own administration’s space policy, the president said: “For all of the money we are spending, NASA should NOT be talking about going to the Moon - We did that 50 years ago.”

He added: “They should be focused on the much bigger things we are doing, including Mars (of which the Moon is a part), Defense and Science!”

Trump’s declaration shocked many space enthusiasts, because the moon has not traditionally been regarded as part of Mars.

The leading theory is that a collision between Earth and a planet-sized entity, many years ago, resulted in debris that eventually became the moon. On average Mars is 140m miles from the moon. Nasa did not immediately respond to a question from the Guardian asking if the moon is part of Mars.

Irrespective of whether the moon is part of Mars (it isn’t), Trump’s announcement was doubly surprising given his previous enthusiasm for a moon trip. His criticism of Nasa for “talking about going to the moon” came just three weeks after Trump championed the idea of a lunar visit.

On 13 May Trump said in a tweet: “We are going back to the moon,” while in March Nasa administrator Jim Bridenstine, who was appointed by Trump, announced plans to send US astronauts to the moon by 2024. In October Mike Pence, the vice-president, said: “Our determination is to see Americans back on the moon in the very near future.”

There is a possibility ​Trump’s tweet was a comment on Nasa’s broader plan to eventually travel to Mars from the moon, but either way it soon emerged that Trump’s moon reversal may have been provoked by the Fox Business TV channel.​ One hour before the president offered his take on the moon’s origin and his criticism of Nasa, Fox guest Neil Cavuto had expressed scepticism over a moon trip.

Cavuto reportedly told the TV cable network that Nasa is “refocusing on the moon, the next sort of quest, if you will, but didn’t we do this moon thing quite a few decades ago?”

The White House did not immediately respond to a Guardian question about whether Trump’s statement should be considered official guidance. In ancient times the moon was worshipped as a god, while more recently some children’s stories have speculated that it is made of cheese.
