Yesterday the sad news broke that a secret service agent in charge of protecting the President and Melania Trump during the European trip had passed away of a stroke. Special Agent Nole Edward Remagen who was married and a father of two children had faithfully served with the Secret Service for 19 years. The Secret Service released a statement saying “with great sadness and regret” to confirm that he had died. They also added that he had passed on while surrounded by his loving family and his “extended Secret Service family.”
In Remembrance: Special Agent Nole E. Remagen. This week the U.S. Secret Service lost one of America’s finest. We ask for your thoughts and prayers for his family, friends and colleagues. Forever Worthy of Trust and Confidence. More: https://t.co/bv2V4XKZFs pic.twitter.com/ykAVxsRaN7

Here is a link to Remagen Family GoFundMe page.
Right after Agent Remagen passed away President Trump issued a statement of his own.
“Our hearts are filled with sadness over the loss of a beloved and devoted Special Agent, husband, and father. Our prayers are with Special Agent Remagen’s loved ones, including his wife and two young children. We grieve with them and with his Secret Agent colleagues, who have lost a friend and brother,” President Trump continued. The president went on to call the late agent “an elite hero,” and added that he and Melania were “deeply grateful” for his service to his country. He also expressed his gratitude for all Secret Service agents for their “extraordinary skill, devotion, and courage.”
But what perhaps is the most showing of who our First Lady really is is what she herself tweeted out in gratitude and condolences. A tweet where she puts emphasis on all the Secret Service does for the first family behind the scenes.
The dedicated @SecretService work tirelessly & often behind the scenes to keep our family safe. @POTUS & I thank you for your service & all that you do. Our deepest condolences go out to the family of Special Agent Nole Edward Remagen.

Even though they just got back from a trip to Europe they still took the time to mourn a fallen Secret Service Agent. Makes you wonder if someone like Hillary Clinton would have done the same.
Here is more on Special Agent Nole Remagen via Heavy:
“Nole Remagen, a Special Agent with the Secret Service, died last week after suffering a stroke during President Donald Trump’s trip to Belgium, the United Kingdom, Scotland and Finland. The 19-year veteran died in Scotland on Tuesday, surrounded by immediate family and Secret Service colleagues.
According to a press release issued by the Department of Homeland Security, Remagen’s body will arrive today at 1:30 pm, via U.S. Air Force military airlift to Joint Base Andrews, Maryland. The president and First Lady Melania Trump will meet the casket on Wednesday just outside Washington, D.C.
Here’s what you need to know about Special Agent Remagen’s death:
1. The Secret Service Remembered Remagen as “One of America’s Finest” & Thanked the US & Scottish Medical Community for Assisting Remagen In His Time of Need
Remagen was remembered by his fellow agents and colleagues on Twitter with a tribute to the veteran. “This week the U.S. Secret Service lost one of America’s finest,” the post read. “We ask for your thoughts and prayers for his family, friends and colleagues. Forever Worthy of Trust and Confidence.”
A press release issued by the Department of Homeland Security stated that Remagen’s body will return to the United States Wednesday afternoon, and thanked the United States and Scotland’s military, law enforcement and medical communities for their assistance with Remagen’s health.
“The Secret Service extends our heartfelt appreciation for the support received from all of our partners in the military, law enforcement, and medical communities, here in the United States and in Scotland. You have all treated Special Agent Remagen as one of your own, and for that we are eternally grateful.”
2. President Trump Released a Heartfelt Statement Paying Tribute to Remagen & His Years of Service
Trump met last week with NATO allies, traveled to the U.K. to meet with British Prime Minister Theresa May and, on Monday, held a series of meetings with Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to USA Today.
While Trump was visiting his golf resort Trump Turnberry in Scotland, Remagen suffered a stroke and was rushed to a Scottish hospital, where he later died. Trump released a tribute to the special agent and the Secret Service, stating that “we are forever in their debt.”
“Our hearts are filled with sadness over the loss of a beloved and devoted Special Agent, husband, and father,” Trump said in a statement honoring the agent. “Our prayers are with Special Agent Remagen’s loved ones, including his wife and two young children.

We are all forever grateful for the service and sacrifice of the men and women of the United States Secret Service, some of the greatest and bravest people in the country. We are sorry for your loss and are grieving with you.”

Elected Republican Majority Whip Just Announced – Will Shake Up The Senate
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by: Daily Caller
South Dakota Sen. John Thune was elected to serve as the Republican Majority Whip Wednesday.
Thune was nominated by former whip, Texas Sen. John Cornyn. This comes as Cornyn met his three-term limit in the position. The majority whip is the second-ranking position in Senate leadership.
Republicans voted for other leadership positions Wednesday, making Missouri Republican Sen. Roy Blunt the Policy Committee chairman, Iowa Republican Sen. Joni Ernst was voted in as vice chairwoman of the GOP conference and Wyoming Republican Sen. John Barrasso will serve as Senate Republican Conference chairman, according to The Hill.
Thune has served as chairman of the Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee since 2015. He will now have to step down as chairman, after taking his new job as majority whip.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell praised Cornyn Wednesday, giving him a Louisville slugger baseball bat with “To John Cornyn – The Best Whip Ever,” written on it.

Meanwhile, The Hill has more on Joni Ernst elected to serve as vice chairwoman of the Senate Republican Conference:
Sen. Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) has been elected to serve as vice chairwoman of the Senate Republican Conference, becoming the first woman to be elected to a Senate GOP leadership position since 2010.
Ernst, a veteran of the Iraq War who served a total of 23 years in the military, is considered a rising star among her colleagues.
She defeated Sen. Deb Fischer (R-Neb.) in the only contested Senate Republican leadership race after months of quiet campaigning in the conference.
Senate Republicans saw Ernst as someone who might be a better communicator for the conference on television, while Fischer garnered praise as someone who worked diligently behind the scenes to build relationships with members of GOP leadership.
Ernst emerged as the winner after Senate Republicans met in the Old Senate Chamber on Wednesday morning to vote on the new leadership team for the 116th Congress.
McConnell was reelected as Senate majority leader, Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.) was elected as majority whip, Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) was elected as Senate Republican Conference chairman and Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) was elected as Senate Republican Policy Committee chairman.
Ernst burst onto the national scene in 2014 with an ad recounting her upbringing on a farm where she castrated hogs and pledging that she would “make ‘em squeal” in Washington by cutting pork.
Senate Republicans say McConnell has been eager to add a woman to his elected leadership team after he came under criticism in 2017 for not appointing a woman to a special health-care working group he created.
A woman has not served as a member of the elected Senate GOP leadership since 2010, when Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) stepped down as vice chairwoman of the GOP conference after losing her primary race to conservative challenger Joe Miller.
Former Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Texas) served as chairman of the Republican Policy Committee from 2007 to 2009, the highest-ranking position a woman has held in the Senate GOP leadership since Sen. Margaret Chase Smith (R-Maine) chaired the Senate Republican Conference in the early 1970s.
Fischer and Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) already serve as informal counselors on McConnell’s leadership team.
Senate Republicans also came under scrutiny during Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation hearings over the all-male GOP membership of the Judiciary Committee.
McConnell says one of his priorities is to recruit more women to the Judiciary panel.
Facebook Illegally Obtained Your Medical Records – Major Lawsuit Underway
Facebook has been getting quite a bit of bad press lately, with the Cambridge Analytica debacle, the data breach that affected 50 million users, and most recently, taking down the pages of a triple-amputee vet who paid the social media giant over $300,000 for advertising.
Now, according to the Sokolove law firm, Facebook was given the medical records of many Americans by hospitals & healthcare facilities. That is illegal & is a violation of state privacy laws!
Earlier this year, Facebook was in fact in discussions with major hospitals and asked them for the medical data of their patients. Facebook wanted to combine the medical data with the data they had collected about their users so they could “help” people. Apparently, Facebook cares about our well-being now, or it was just about doing whatever it takes, including breaking the law to make money!
Mainstream media covered the story, although, Facebook told reporters that the project never got past the planning stages. But Sokolove Law begs to differ.
According to CNBC:
“Facebook has asked several major U.S. hospitals to share anonymized data about their patients, such as illnesses and prescription info, for a proposed research project. Facebook was intending to match it up with user data it had collected, and help the hospitals figure out which patients might need special care or treatment.
“This work has not progressed past the planning phase, and we have not received, shared, or analyzed anyone’s data,” a Facebook spokesperson told CNBC.
But as recently as last month, the company was talking to several health organizations, including Stanford Medical School and American College of Cardiology, about signing the data-sharing agreement.
The issue of patient consent did not come up in the early discussions, one of the people said. Critics have attacked Facebook in the past for doing research on users without their permission. Notably, in 2014, Facebook manipulated hundreds of thousands of people’s news feeds to study whether certain types of content made people happier or sadder. Facebook later apologized for the study.
Health policy experts say that this health initiative would be problematic if Facebook did not think through the privacy implications.
“Consumers wouldn’t have assumed their data would be used in this way,” said Aneesh Chopra, president of a health software company specializing in patient data called CareJourney and the former White House chief technology officer.”
Now, you see, Facebook said they received no data from the healthcare facilities, yet, the Sokolove Law firm just sent letters to their clients & others stating that Facebook had, in fact, come into possession of medical records. That means Facebook would have come into possession of the data illegally.
Here is a photo of one of the letters that a reader sent to us. We blurred out the reader’s personal info & the case number.
As you can see, the letter states there were privacy “breaches” at the healthcare facilities. It also states that Facebook received “patient’s personally identifiable information,” and that the sharing of that information is illegal! Facebook didn’t know they weren’t supposed to receive the data? Really? Or they knew & took it anyway? They broke the law! That is for sure!
Facebook stated that they had not received any medical records. Here’s the company’s statement to CNBC:
“Last year Facebook began discussions with leading medical institutions, including the American College of Cardiology and the Stanford University School of Medicine, to explore whether scientific research using anonymized Facebook data could help the medical community advance our understanding in this area. This work has not progressed past the planning phase, and we have not received, shared, or analyzed anyone’s data.”
“Last month we decided that we should pause these discussions so we can focus on other important work, including doing a better job of protecting people’s data and being clearer with them about how that data is used in our products and services.”
Now, we see, according to Sokolove Law, Facebook is either mistaken or lying outright. I guess we’ll find out which when they are in court! Break the law, pay the price!
