‘We just pulled it,’ Trump tells The Post amid GOP revolt
The move came as House Speaker Paul Ryan struggled to win support for the health-care bill and moments before the scheduled House vote. It was a dramatic acknowledgment that Republicans are so far unable to repeal the Affordable Care Act. The decision came a day after President Trump delivered an ultimatum to lawmakers — and the defeat represented multiple failures for the new president and the House speaker.

The Incredible Power Of Thought

Road To The Riches


Thoughts are the windows of future. It’s the obvious reason for every success. A man is, but the product of his thoughts – what he thinks, he becomes.
Mahatma Gandhi

Since the power of thought is a very potent form of energy that penetrates all time and space we need to be aware of what we think.

Fortunate for the human race we are able to control our thoughts. We can use our mind and practice the process of thinking. We can make ourselves think thoughts of what we want to be or have.

A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty”

On the face of it, the Israeli claim lacks credibility since Palmyra is twice removed from the Syrian-Lebanon border in terms of geographical proximity. Possibly, Syrian government has a point that the Israelis were deliberately targeting its forces. This explains why Russian Foreign Ministry called in the Israeli ambassador in Moscow on the same day and sought explanation.
