    It must be weird for the ordinary person around the world to view U.S. politics through the prism of the American MSM lügenpresse.  We’re often left wondering if international observers realize how much deception and fraud exists in media broadcasts of President Trump. However, that said, a few days ago CTH predicted via twitter that Friday would bring a “breaking news” revelation that President Trump’s administration had been in ongoing negotiations with North Korea.  Today, exactly that happened. [...] These back-channel discussions were/are entirely predictable because negotiation is the forté of President Trump’s entire life’s repertoire.  It’s just how he rolls.  Negotiation is what gets Donald Trump’s autonomic...
  • Brexit Negotiations Finally Begin – But Will the “Two-Year Parliament” Destroy the Whole Process

    It has taken almost exactly one year from when the British people voted to leave the European Union to start the negotiations which began today. During the June 8th election, more than 80% of the voting public voted for parties that said “we will leave the European Union and the Single Market”, and according to polls, the “Die-Hard Remainers” now only number 20-25%. But this has never been about what the actual People want, it has always been about what the Globalists are willing to accept. Minister for Exiting the EU, David Davis, a staunch Brexiteer, has begun the process...

    EP Turkey rapporteur Kati Piri answered Turkish President Erdoğan’s comments of “If new chapters with the EU are not opened we will say goodbye” and stated that the negotiations should stop. Erdoğan spoke after he rejoined AKP yesterday and, calling the EU out, said: “The European Union has no option but to open new chapters for the negotiations. And if you don’t, then bye bye.” Erdoğan’s comments received a response from the EU. “If Turkey was truly interested in membership, Ankara should have shown this,” said European Parliament Turkey Rapporteur Kati Piri and added that opening a new chapter is...

    Lots more nukes? 10 percent tariffs? Remember how the guy operates before you wet yourself Public statements affect different people in different ways. Since the news media think the world revolves around them - since how they react to something is obviously more important than anything else under the sun - they get quite exorcised whenever someone makes a public statement that strikes them as ill-considered. Donald Trump does that a lot. He talks (or more often, tweets) about halting immigration by Muslims. And about imposing tarrifs on foreign goods. This past week, if you listen to the media, Trump...
  • Battle of wills in Brussels: Brexit negotiations given boost as EU chiefs snub Juncker

    BRITAIN is likely to deal with Europe’s member states and not the European Commission when thrashing out the Brexit deal, the European Council has indicated. It would signal a victory for Britain’s negotiators following a battle of wills between the Council and Jean-Claude Juncker’s EU Commission, which had hoped to play a central role. It was feared that Commission president Mr Juncker would try to apply pressure for the UK to exit Europe before working out an alternative deal. One senior EU official said: “Juncker wanted Britain to leave the parking lot before programming the sat nav.” However, during a...

    Taysir Kubaa, deputy head of the Palestinian National Council, on Thursday called on the Palestinian Authority (PA) to abandon the path of negotiations with Israel which, he said, does not lead to success for the Palestinians. Speaking in an interview with Hamas's Palestine newspaper, Kubaa said that the Palestinian reliance on false negotiations is wrong, since negotiations are “worthless”, as he put it, and “the only option we face is a return to national unity and enlisting our people to the forces of the struggle.” Referring to the French peace initiative which calls for an international conference to renew peace...

    In case you missed it over the weekend, National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes admitted in a lengthy New York Times Magazine profile that the Obama administration used the media to manipulate and lie to the American people about the nuclear deal with Iran. Here is one of the lies pushed by the administration, which David Reaboi highlighted yesterday at The Federalist. First, the lies and the denials about the negotiations. It took months before a few dogged journalists started to ask questions about the talks Obama officials were engaged in with Ahmadinejad’s regime. In February 2013, then-State Department Spokesperson Victoria Nuland...

    In an unprecedented statement Palestinian Authority (PA) Foreign Minister Riyad al-Malki explicitly rejected the possibility of renewed direct negotiations with Israel - ever. While visiting Japan on Monday, Malki pledged to never again engage with Israel in direct negotiations towards a final settlement. “We will never go back and sit again in direct Israeli-Palestinian negotiations.” In what may have been a response to Israeli President Reuven Rivlin’s statements on Monday to US Ambassador to the UN Samantha Power calling for a resumption of direct talks with the PA, Malki both rejected the idea of an invitation to return to the...

    The ink is not even dry on Obama’s ill-conceived executive agreement with Iran and already observers have found potentially unlawful stipulations baked into the agreement. A predictable development, to be sure, but it seems last minute. The administration has already ignored other judicial pronouncements through the course of negotiations without much fanfare. As the debate now inevitably plunges into squabbles over illegalities, it is time to address the outstanding judgment still haunting grieving victims of Iran’s terrorism. The Islamic Republic still owes billions in settlements to its American victims and the White House refused demand payment as part of the...

    Trump called both the deal and the Americans who negotiated it, "incompetent.""We will have so much winning if I get elected, that you may get bored with winning," said Trump at the rally. "Believe me. I agree, you'll never get bored with winning. We never get bored."When I asked Trump what he'll demand in the deal that isn't already there, he told me: "You're going to have to watch.""I don't want to say things that the other side is going to learn everything about me," Trump added. "Do you understand that? That's part of the problem. Everything is talk...

    The Palestinian Authority responded unenthusiastically Thursday to offers by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to come to Ramallah and renew peace talks unconditionally with the Palestinian Authority (PA). According to Kol Yisrael radio, Palestinian “prime minister” Rami Hamdallah said that the Palestinians are interested in a new framework for talks. He explained that the talks would not be renewed if a date is not set for ending them, and if the problem of borders is not discussed. Another senior PA official, top Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat, said that the idea of returning to the unconditional negotiations is “a trap.” He said...

    Iranian officials recently began to reveal details from the nuclear negotiations with the U.S. since their early stages. Their statements indicate that the U.S. initiated secret negotiations with Iran not after President Hassan Rohani, of the pragmatic camp, was elected in 2013, but rather in 2011-2012, in the era of radical president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.[1] The disclosures also indicate that, already at that time, Iran received from the U.S. administration a letter recognizing its right to enrich uranium on its own soil. Hossein Sheikh Al-Islam, an advisor to the Majlis speaker, specified that the letter had come from John Kerry, then...

    Over the past three years, the Obama administration has delineated the criteria that any final nuclear agreement between the P5+1 and Iran must meet. In speeches, congressional testimony, press conferences, and media interviews, administration officials have also articulated their expectations from Tehran with repeated declarations: “No deal is better than a bad deal.” This FPI Analysis, which updates an earlier publication from January 2015, compiles many of the administration’s own statements on nuclear negotiations with Iran over the past three years, and compares them with current U.S. positions. It also examines U.S. statements on a range of other issues related...

    Iranian nuclear fuel stockpiles grew by a massive 20% over the past 18 months of negotiations between Iran and world powers, a report last month by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has revealed. The report comes just one month ahead of the June 30 deadline set for the P5+1 powers and Iran to finalize a deal over Tehran's nuclear program. News that Iran has been busily expanding its stockpiles contradicts claims by US President Barack Obama that the Islamic Republic had "frozen" its nuclear program during the last year and a half of negotiations. Despite that, western leaders appear...

    Amidst the various twists and turns of our nation’s negotiation with Iran on a nuclear deal, one thing is clear: the American people are skeptical. Americans know that a nuclear Iran is a threat to every nation. Our concern is not just Iran in possession of a nuclear bomb; we all know that the leadership of Iran continues to threaten its neighbors and the World. Iran is the world’s largest state-sponsor of terrorism and there is little doubt that if they had nuclear weapons, they could transfer those weapons or nuclear material to their global terror proxies. This week, the...

    Emerging details of a possible nuclear deal with Iran have drawn sharp criticism from congressional lawmakers on both sides of the aisle, who say the U.S. and its international partners may be ceding too much as a key deadline nears. If reports are true, "then we are not inching closer to Iran’s negotiating position, but leaping toward it with both feet,” charged Sen. Robert Menendez, D-N.J., top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and a vocal critic of the direction of the talks. “My fear is that we are no longer guided by the principle that ‘no deal is...

    North Korea on Wednesday appeared to rule out any resumption of dialogue with the United States, threatening to react to any US "war of aggression" with nuclear strikes and cyber warfare. The statement from the country's top military body, the National Defence Commission (NDC), came after reported moves by Washington and Pyongyang to revive long-stalled six-nation talks on denuclearisation. The NDC said recent comments from President Barack Obama had revealed that the United States' goal was to "bring down" North Korea. The statement was an apparent reaction to an interview Obama gave on January 22 in which he spoke of...

    DISH FAQS Posted: Dec 19, 2014 1:50 PM CST 1. What is happening? By law, WBOC and FOX21 must negotiate carriage agreements with satellite companies like DISH. Usually, these deals are reached without any disruption to your service. In fact, our company has negotiated dozens of agreements. Unfortunately, so far, DISH has refused to reach a fair, market-based deal to carry WBOC and FOX21. Our existing agreement with DISH expires at midnight on Dec. 31, 2014. If no deal is reached before that date, you will lose live access to the shows, sports and local news on WBOC and FOX21,...
