  • Israeli Settler Leaders Will Flock to Trump Inauguration

    The Jewish Forward ^ | January 16, 2017 | Naomi Zeveloff
    Israeli settlers and their American evangelical supporters are among the invitees to Donald Trump’s presidential inauguration on January 20. Yehuda Glick, a Brooklyn-born rabbi and member of the Israeli parliament’s ruling Likud party confirmed that he will be attending the inauguration with fellow Likud lawmaker Sharren Haskel. They will be joined by Atlanta-born Israeli rabbi Jeremy Gimpel, who spoke about his intention to attend on a radio show on the Land of Israel Network. Gimpel is bringing his teenage son, a Trump fan, as a present for his bar mitzvah trip. Glick is a well-known agitator for Jewish prayer at...

    With just days to go until Donald Trump is inaugurated as the 45th president of the United States of America, we want to hear from Irish readers living there about how they feel now about him entering the White House. On the day of the election result, we were inundated with reaction, with the majority expressing shock and dismay. Have your opinions or expectations changed in the months since? What did you think of Mr Trump’s press conference this week? What is the mood like where you live? How do you think his presidency could affect the Irish community in...

    Article V Blog ^ | January 16th 2017 | Rodney Dodsworth
    As Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army, George Washington knew like no other man of the shortcomings of the Articles of Confederation (AC). From the despair at Valley Forge in 1777-78, and a congressional recommendation that he plunder the Pennsylvania countryside for supplies, George Washington and his men felt the full measure of inadequate government. On March 15th 1783, Washington prevented a mutiny of his army encamped at Newburgh NY that would have changed the course of American history. The Revolutionary War did not end with victory at Yorktown; British troops still held New York, Charleston, Savannah, and western outposts. Ironically,...

    Exclusive: The U.S. intelligence community’s unprecedented assault on an incoming U.S. president – now including spreading salacious rumors – raises questions about how long Donald Trump can hold the White House, says Daniel Lazare. Is a military coup in the works? Or are U.S. intelligence agencies laying the political groundwork for forcing Donald Trump from the presidency because they can’t abide his rejection of a new cold war with Russia? Not long ago, even asking such questions would have marked one as the sort of paranoid nut who believes that lizard people run the government. But no longer. Thanks to...

    The American Spectator ^ | January 16, 2017 | Maia Szalavitz
    Research shows that unemployment and low socioeconomic status are linked with higher risk for addiction, compared to having a job and being in the middle class. Although the media has focused on heroin and prescription opioid misuse these days as being a “middle class” problem, the risk of addiction is more than three times higher for people making less than $20,000 compared to those who make over $50,000. These facts make President Trump’s promises to increase employment — perhaps through an infrastructure program — critical if he wants to deal with the opioid epidemic in the long run. Meaningful work...

    President Obama says President-elect Donald Trump was an “unconventional candidate” who ran an “improvisational campaign.” But he doesn’t think that approach will work in the White House. In an interview that aired on “60 Minutes” Sunday, Obama was asked if it’s possible for Trump to run “an improvisational presidency.” “I don’t think so,” Obama said. “And so now he’s in the process of building up an organization. And we’ll have to see how that works. And it’ll be a test, I think, for him and the people that he’s designated to be able to execute on his vision.” But Obama...

    Incoming first lady Melania Trump has yet to publicly name her senior White House staff, raising questions about whether the positions have been filled amid uncertainty about the Trump family’s role in the administration. The lack of announcements from the president-elect’s transition team is notable given that Melania Trump is not moving to Washington, D.C., right away and speculation abounds about the role Ivanka Trump will play in her father’s White House. There has been no chief of staff, communications director or social secretary named for the East Wing. And the chief of staff and social secretary positions are particularly...

    The Society of Classical Poets today published their poem for the inauguration of the 45th President of the United States. Donald J. Trump. The poem draws on Trump’s noble Scottish roots and is written by New Mexican native and decorated poet Joseph Charles MacKenzie. The inspiration behind the poem is to touch on the classical poetry existing throughout American history, and the inauguration poem marks important moments in US political history. Traditionally, the poem began with President John F. Kennedy’s inauguration in January, 1961, the inaugural poem and has, until now been a purely Democratic Party tradition. “ The Society’s...

For generations they have been ceremonial supports for the peaceful transition of power, and the peaceful resolution of partisan conflicts. Not this election year. There will be no honeymoon....

"He helped this country like no president I've seen in my lifetime. We should thank God we lived in the age of Obama." Sharpton said Americans must be "concerned" about the future of the country when President-elect Donald Trump is inaugurated next week.

She’s been systematically abused by the U.S. government, held in conditions that the UN considers to be torture, and has attempted suicide twice during her 7 years behind bars. But now there’s hope. NBC reports that she is on President Obama’s “short list” for commutation. The news has sparked a groundswell of support for Chelsea online. Hundreds of thousands of people have already taken action to support her, but now the message is simpler than ever. But now...

Although Donald J. Trump won thirty of the fifty states and more individual counties than any other U.S. president since President Reagan, Lewis has been unable to accept his party's defeat. Accepting an uncomfortable loss is a life experience that escapes John R. Lewis, a man of 76 years of age.

    President-elect Donald Trump surprised many when he chose one of President Obama’s appointees to run the Department of Veterans Affairs after pledging to overhaul the department during the campaign. But the nominee, current under secretary of health David Shulkin, has a long history in the private sector turning around struggling hospitals. Veterans groups called the choice a pleasant surprise, as they say Shulkin has overseen a turnaround in the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) and resisted calls for privatizing the federal system. “While our membership has been clear in its preference to have a veteran leading the VA, I am heartened...

If the plan is adopted, one official told Esquire, the media will be removed from the White House press room, where it has been located since Richard Nixon was president. They would be relocated either to the White House Conference Center or to a space in the Old Executive Office building, located next door to the White House.

    As we pointed out last year in our social media series, the neutralization of non-leftist perspectives by the gatekeepers of the world’s most popular websites is rapidly shrinking the sphere of acceptable public debate. While European countries-as well as Canada-are using the state itself to suppressing dissenting views, there is also parallel effort by these site’s owners-and in the case of Wikipedia, its users-to erase inconvenient truths. A concrete illustration of this phenomenon occurred recently, when The People’s Cube-a satirical conservative website-had its Wikipedia entry deleted. The fact that it had received extensive national coverage over the course of its...

This is not a top priority of mine. Although ObamaCare is collapsing, if we don’t fix a few other things first, we’ll never need a sophisticated, complicated health care system – because there won’t be a system – or a civilization – to collapse. I wish I didn’t have to give this a “Low Priority” because it’s more important than that, but there is no other choice with this poorly-designed survey.

With a median household income of $40,581, millennials earn 20 percent less than boomers did at the same stage of life, despite being better educated, according to a new analysis of Federal Reserve data by the advocacy group Young Invincibles. The analysis being released Friday gives concrete details about a troubling generational divide that helps to explain much of the anxiety that defined the 2016 election. Millennials have half the net worth of boomers. Their home ownership rate is lower, while their student debt is drastically higher. The generational gap...

    Yesterday ConocoPhillips' (NYSE:COP) Alaskan unit announced a big discovery in Alaska. The Willow discovery lies in the COP's Greater Mooses Tooth ("GMT") unit and consists of two wells which encountered 72 feet and 42 feet of net pay. 3-D seismic appraisal work will start this month, however initial estimates indicate the discovery could contain a recoverable oil potential of 300 million barrels of oil. As a result, Willow could produce up to 100,000 bpd of oil and first oil could come by 2023. ConocoPhillips has a 78% working interest in the play while Anadarko Petroleum (NYSE:APC) holds a 22% interest....

    Wal-Mart is reorganizing its e-commerce team and upgrading executives from its recent Jet.com acquisition to compete with Amazon with higher selectivity and lower prices. The changes are aimed at making Wal-Mart more customer-focused, Jet founder Marc Lore, who is now the Executive Chairman of Wal-Mart's e-commerce operation, said on Friday in a memo Bloomberg had access. Wal-Mart bought Jet in September for about $ 3.3 billion and is appealing to the startup to push for an online operation that has lagged behind Amazon. "We've talked a lot about becoming a more customer-centric organization," Lore said. "Our strategy is to offer...

    THE ECONOMIC COLLAPSE BLOG ^ | JANUARY 12TH, 2017 | MICHAEL SNYDER
    January 20th cannot come soon enough. Instead of stepping back and trying to ensure a smooth transition for Donald Trump, Barack Obama has decided to go hog wild and use every ounce of presidential power still available to him. He has been establishing a bunch of new national monuments, he just stabbed Israel in the back at the United Nations, and on Thursday he even took time to give Joe Biden a Presidential Medal of Freedom. But one of the things that has people the most concerned is his endless provoking of Russia. Every few days it seems like Obama...

    [Note: The Divine Service at St. Matthew Lutheran Church in Bonne Terre, Missouri, for January 15, 2017, has been iced out. So I am posting the sermon for the equivalent Sunday, the Second Sunday after the Epiphany, Series A, from January 20, 2008. CH]“Three Evangelism Pointers: Point, Invite, and Find” (John 1:29-42a) The Epiphany season traditionally is a time for emphasizing the church’s work of evangelism and missions. Why is that? Well, think of the event celebrated on the Epiphany festival: Wise men from the east, being led by a star to find the Christ child--in other words, the spread...

    A draft of the summary statement that will be released at the conclusion of the 70 nation conference in Paris on Sunday has been leaked. As you will see below, this communique is going to call for the division of the land of Israel, for the establishment of a Palestinian state, for the 1967 borders to serve as the basis for final negotiations between the Israelis and the Palestinians, and for the condemnation of any officials that refuse to support a two state solution. Of course this comes on the heels of UN Security Council Resolution 2334, which many believe...

    Citing “an active danger to health and safety” a California Episcopal parish has ceased to pray for the President of the United States by name. Episcopalians and other Anglicans regularly pray for their bishops and others in authority during the course of a normal Sunday liturgy, including the President of the United States. It is also common to pray, by name, for the President-elect during the window of time between the election and the inauguration. Mike Kinman, Rector of All Saints Episcopal Church in Pasadena, California, blogged this week: “If you come to All Saints this Sunday, you’ll notice that...
