    Former US President Barack Obama is set to visit Chinese Leader Xi Jinping this Tuesday while on a five-day trip to China, India and France. A statement from Washington's spokeswoman has told CNN that former President Barack Obama is set to meet with his former counterparts during his trip, including Chinese President Xi Jinping. Obama, who will be arriving in Shanghai to deliver remarks at the Global Alliance of SMEs Summit, will meet with Xi for the first time since September 2016, when both leaders ratified the Paris climate agreement in their respective countries. Just recently, current US President Donald...

    Some days, it can seem as if half the country has come down with rabies. A lot of people seem willing to tear your head off over the smallest thing.Part of it probably comes from the disinhibiting effect of social media—where the lack of filters or personal contact makes it easy to fire off a nasty personal attack in the heat of the moment... which only encourages people to respond in kind.Part of it probably comes from the fact that Americans increasingly sort themselves into like-minded communities. That means they're less apt to get to know people who think...

    The Civil Administration Higher Planning Committee is slated to meet next week and give final approval to nearly 4,000 new housing units across Judea and Samaria, including the first new construction in the Jewish community in Hevron in some four decades. On Sunday night, Channel 2 reported that the Netanyahu government has okayed the move, following delays by the Higher Planning Committee, which had originally been scheduled to approve the projects in September. The new wave of construction, totaling 3,829 homes, includes building in communities outside of the so-called “major settlement blocs”, a significant shift from the limits imposed on...

    Syria’s Foreign Minister Walid al-Moualem on Monday said there had been an apparent change of attitude towards Syria by the US administration following the Russian plan for “de-escalation” zones. “It seems the United States, where (President Donald) Trump has said the Syrian crisis has dragged on too long, might have come to the conclusion that there must be an understanding with Russia on a solution.” Asked about US backing for Kurdish groups fighting Islamic State in northeast Syria, Moualem said that what Syrian Kurds were doing against the jihadist group was “legitimate” at this stage and fell within the framework...

    The existence of the Russian army units in the Cindy's of the Ephrin Canton was the result of an agreement made between our forces and the Russian army. The agreement was based on the fight against terrorism and on the basis of military training of the Russian army's warriors. We have direct relations with Russia. This step is a positive and good step in the fight against terrorism in Syria. After our forces prove themselves against terrorism, many forces are willing to help us and make a deal with us.
  • Reince Priebus Suggests Clinton Campaign Backing Off Election-Night Agreement to Concede

    (AP) Donald Trump’s incoming chief of staff suggests Hillary Clinton is backing away from a deal worked out between the two presidential campaigns on how the loser would concede to the winner. Reince Priebus tells “Fox News Sunday” that Clinton’s team “cut a deal” with Trump’s team specifying that once The Associated Press called the race in favor of one candidate, the other would call within 15 minutes to concede. Priebus says that’s just what happened election night. But now he’s questioning whether Clinton campaign lawyer Marc Elias is backing down from that deal by announcing Clinton will participate in...
  • Trump considers last-minute meeting in Mexico with the country’s president

    08/30/2016 5:58:20 PM PDT · by springwater13 · 149 replies
    Donald Trump is considering jetting to Mexico City on Wednesday for a meeting with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, just hours before he delivers a high-stakes speech in Arizona to clarify his views on immigration policy, according to people in the United States and Mexico familiar with the discussions. The possibility, which was hatched in recent days by Trump and his campaign advisers, comes after Trump has wavered for weeks on whether he would continue to hold his hard-line positions on the central and incendiary issue of his campaign, in particular his call to deport an estimated 11 million immigrants...

    Not sure how this will turn out. This was something I saw earlier today that I thought was important. When I went back through threads, I couldn't find it. When I searched online and found this image, it said Free Republic had removed it. What I need to know is - was it removed because it was proven false, or because it was a Getty image or some other copyright issue? Very important to know. Thank you.

    A top Israeli official has released an official response to US President Barack Obama on Wednesday night, after he attacked Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and his opposition to the deal struck between the West and Iran during a jab-laden speech. "Israel does not doubt the sincerity of President Obama, but disagrees with his position," the official stated to Arutz Sheva on condition of anonymity. "This agreement does not prevent war, but brings it closer, because it gives international legitimacy to Iran to build the infrastructure to create an arsenal of nuclear bombs, and is financing the terrorist machine and its...

    The Jewish Journal of Los Angeles, just published an article by Rabbi John Rosove titled Many Israeli Experts Believe the Iran Deal is a Supportable Deal Despite its Flaws. He is self-described as a progressive Reform Zionist and national co-Chair of the Rabbinic Cabinet of J Street. Remember that J Street just announced a multi-million campaign to endorse the Iran Deal. This article is surely part of that campaign. In reviewing the quotes from these experts which he lists to make his case, it is clear that they appear to be making the assumption that the deal will be honored...

    ime and again, President Barack Obama and his indefatigable secretary of state promised that they and their P5+1 negotiating partners would not sign a bad deal with Iran on its nuclear weapons program. They didn’t sign a bad framework deal in Lausanne, Switzerland, last week. They just agreed on one in principle, and left it unsigned, allowing for multiple conflicting interpretations. It was immediately plain that the US-led negotiators had mislaid their moral compass, and indeed any clear sight of their own self-interest, when they agreed to conduct the negotiations as scheduled even as Iran’s ruthless, arrogant leader Ali Khamenei...

The Apostolic Commissioner has changed his mind and withdrew his signature on the agreement with the family of FFI Founder Father Stefano Maria Manelli. This past February 12 Commissioner Volpi and the family Manelli had agreed following a mediation in civil matters (mediazione civile).
