    This win needs to be sipped slowly for maximum enjoyment. First, we would draw your attention to May 23rd, when President Trump announced an instruction to Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross to begin a Section 301 review of the auto industry a week prior to the implementation of the Steel and Aluminum tariffs. At the time when all media were discussing other ‘matters’ CTH pointed out the strategy that was visible in the Auto-Sector. China, the EU (specifically Germany), and Canada were the strategic trade targets in the approach. About a week later, Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland snarkily announced her...

    In recent days (Monday June 18th) Tommy Robinson has received a family visit at his prison (Onley) in the Midlands of England. Family members found Tommy to be losing weight in his solitary confinement cell. He is unable to buy any extra food beyond his "hole" diet. Tommy is unable to get a razor in solitary and is growing a beard. Tommy Robinson was forced to have his warders put him in solitary when he was transferred to HMP Onley last week because other inmates were calling out his name, yelling out threats and beating on the walls of the...

    Bruce Thornton is a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center. In Shakespeare’s Henry IV, Part 1, when the Welsh magus Glendower boasts, “I can call spirits from the vasty deep,” the sceptic Hotspur retorts, “Why, so can I, or so can any man; But will they come when you do call for them?” For seven decades the West’s foreign policy establishment has been trying to call Middle East peace from depths of endless summits and conferences and agreements with ritualistic chants of “land for peace” and “two-state solution.” But all they’ve managed to produce is war, terrorism,...
  • EU Court of Justice: All EU nations must welcome same-sex ‘spouses’

    Homosexual rights got a boost from a groundbreaking judgment of the European Court of Justice that forces all EU member states to welcome the same-sex "spouses" of EU citizens, even when they are not EU nationals. The European Court of Justice fell short of imposing an obligation on EU member states to recognize homosexual marriages but opened another avenue for homosexual marriage in Europe by declaring a "derived right of residence" in EU states for same-sex spouses of EU nationals who are non-EU citizen. The Court recognized that homosexual marriage may not be a human right but held that homosexual...

    ROME, June 14, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) — Nearly 500 British priests have issued a statement upholding Humanae Vitae and proposing it as the key to healing society, amid reports of moves within the Vatican to water down its teaching and accommodate the Church to modern trends. In a letter released to the Catholic press on June 14 (see full letter below), the group of priests from Great Britain state that the Church’s perennial teaching on human sexuality should be at the forefront in re-building a culture of life, and stress its importance for Catholics and non-Catholics alike. The initiative, called “Humanae...

    TWICKENHAM, England, June 12, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) -- There is a large house on the southwestern outskirts of London. It is an impressive building set back from the road and towering over those who stand in front of it or those who enter. Today, it is an abortion center run by the British Pregnancy Advisory Service. This house, in a residential quarter of suburban London, is yet another monument to Britain’s culture of death. It was not always so. At one time, this building was a convent run by a Catholic order of nuns, the Daughters of the Immaculate. In the...

    Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the president of Turkey, announced that he’s expelling Uber from Turkey, a result of pressure from Istanbul's taxi industry. Istanbul taxi drivers, numbering more than 17,000, claimed Uber was providing an illegal service and that it needs to be banned. Ever since Uber began its service in Turkey in 2014, it's caused dissension among the country's taxi drivers, not unlike what's happening elsewhere. In a speech on Friday, Erdogan said, “This thing called Uber emerged. That business is finished. That does not exist anymore. We have our taxi system.... Where does this come from? It is used...

    Omar Mohamad travelled from Reading to march against the EDL leader and left Sergeant Guy Rooney with a severely bruised face. The 62-year-old joined the Hyde Park event led by the controversial leader with a group of men. During the rally he scuffled with the officer and struck him with a walking stick. Sergeant Rooney suffered from post traumatic stress and his bruising was so bad his children wouldn't walk to school with him. Passing a 26 week suspended sentence, District Judge Richard Blake said the rally was held "to express views that were adverse to the Muslim community in...

    Immigration is now seen as the most important issue facing the European Union (EU) by people in every member state apart from seven countries, where the top concern is terrorism, an official survey has found. The revelation comes from the Eurobarometer, a series of public opinion surveys conducted for the European Commission, the bloc’s executive branch, and corroborates the results of a YouGov survey from May. As recently as 2014, immigration and terror were perceived as less of a concern for the bloc than the economic situation, member states’ public finances, and unemployment. When people were asked this year what...

    GENEVA (Reuters) - Talks with the United States over how to reform the main U.N. rights body have failed to meet Washington’s demands, activists and diplomats say, suggesting that the Trump administration will quit the Geneva forum whose session opens on Monday. A U.S. source, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Reuters the withdrawal appeared to be “imminent” but had no details. Diplomatic sources said it was not a question of if but of when the United States retreats from the Human Rights Council, which is holding a three-week session through July 6. A separate U.S. official in Geneva had...

    For the umpteenth time, the United Nations General Assembly has voted to condemn Israel for defending itself. By a tally of 120 to 8, the members declared that Israel was guilty of “excessive use of force” against Palestinians who were protesting the opening of the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem. The resolution also requested recommendations to protect Palestinians. For 10 weeks now, the two sides have clashed at the border, resulting in 120 Palestinian deaths. Israeli Defense Forces warned protesters not to approach the Israeli-Gaza border on May 14, the day of the embassy opening. They did anyway - some armed...

    German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer has invited Italian populist leader Matteo Salvini to Berlin in order to discuss Europe’s border crisis.

Mr Salvini serves as Italy’s Deputy Prime Minister and Minister...

The comments paint an unyielding stance on trade as the president prepares to meet...
