    The United States ran a merchandise trade deficit of $165.0623 billion in the first quarter of 2016, which was down slightly from the $165.7159 billion merchandise trade deficit the United States ran in the first quarter of 2015, according to data released Wednesday by the Census Bureau. The U.S. exported $347.5618 billion in goods during the quarter and imported $512.6241 billion. The bilateral merchandise trade deficit with China during the first quarter was $77.9461 billion—by far the largest with any nation.

  • Refugee Nightmare 2.0 — the EU’s 2nd Migration Tsunami Has Begun

    The New American ^ | 04 May 2016 | William F. Jasper
    The migration tsunami that swamped Europe with 1.5 million “refugees” in 2015 is roaring back with a tidal wave that may be double the size of last year’s deluge. In fact, most citizens of the European Union countries appear to be unaware that their unelected and unaccountable rulers at the European Commission, in their own European Economic Forecast report issued last fall, announced precisely that. That is, they projected (with apparent acceptance and approval) that three million refugees/migrants would arrive in Europe in 2016. The warming spring/summer weather along the Mediterranean now means calmer seas are returning, which means many...

    Billionaire refuses to walk back controversial policy Fresh off his massive victory in Indiana, presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump told MSNBC's Morning Joe earlier today that he would stick by his controversial policy on Muslim immigration because the migrant crisis is "destroying Europe". Trump's proposal to place a temporary halt on Muslim immigration to the United States was perhaps his most incendiary of the campaign, but the New York billionaire shows no signs of walking it back. Asked if he still believed "Muslims should be banned from entering the country until we can figure out what's going on," Trump said...

Instead of the Nazis, we have the militant extremists, the militant Islamists. Can't call 'em that, can't refer to them in any way that would be offensive or whatever.

    - The jury has begun deliberations in the murder trial of accused "Grim Sleeper" serial killer Lonnie Franklin, even as new information was disclosed Wednesday about the defendant's record out of the jury's presence. In a hearing held while the jury was behind closed doors, prosecutor Beth Silverman disclosed that Franklin has a conviction for a sex crime outside the United States on his record - a gang rape in Germany when he was in the Army. Silverman told the court that Franklin and two friends borrowed a car, drove to a nearby village, dragged a woman to the car...

    When the leader of Germany’s Jews spoke out against the flow of Muslim migrants to Europe, a rabbinical student denounced his views as racist — and ignited a debate over whether Jews are right to fear unprecedented levels of immigration from Muslim lands traditionally hostile to Israel. The student, Armin Langer, was kicked out of the Abraham Geiger College in Potsdam after he wrote that the leader of Germany’s Central Council of Jews was wrong to seek a cap on Muslim immigration. Langer, a founder of an inter-faith group called Salaam-Shalom committed to fostering dialogue between Muslims and Jews, said...

    The European Central Bank announced Wednesday that it will phase out the 500 euro banknote because of concerns that this banknote "could facilitate illicit activities" ... Europe's top law enforcement officials maintain that the 500 euro banknote (worth about $576) makes it easy for criminals to launder money since it's so easy to move around undetected. In a report last year, Europol said cash was still the "instrument of choice" for terrorists and 500 euro notes were in high demand, though they're not popular for everyday transactions. ...

    The European Commission will on Wednesday propose a mandatory relocation system for asylum seekers, and will make it expensive for those EU countries that refuse to take part, according to an internal Commission document seen by POLITICO. It’s part of a planned shake-up of the bloc’s asylum rules that aims to ease the pressure on the EU countries at the bloc’s external borders. If the proposal becomes law, the EU country in which migrants first set foot would in principle have to process their asylum claims, but that country would no longer be obliged to host all of the migrants...

With the two-state solution increasingly unlikely, there is concern that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu is “instrumentalizing” Germany’s friendship. […] “The perception has been growing in the German government that Netanyahu is instrumentalizing our friendship,” says Rolf Mützenich, deputy floor leader for the Social Democrats (SPD) in parliament. The SPD is Merkel’s junior coalition partner and Foreign Minister Steinmeier is a leading member of the party.

The new French request is specifically for an additional 200 Lockheed Martin AGM-114K1A Hellfire missiles, Hellfire missile conversion, blast fragmentation sleeves and installation kits, containers, and transportation. The total estimated cost of the deal is $30 million.

According to DB's Dominic Konstam, now that the benefits QE "have run their course", it is time for the next, and far more drastic step: "the ECB and BoJ should move more strongly toward penalizing savings via negative retail deposit rates or perhaps wealth taxes. With this stick would also come a carrot – for example, negative mortgage rates."

The party has no lawmakers in the federal parliament in Berlin but has members in half of Germany's 16 regional state assemblies. Opinion polls give AfD support of up to 14 percent, presenting a...

American officials have balked as their Israeli counterparts insisted on more generous terms for a new 10-year military aid package that could top $40 billion. The divide, which could have broad national security implications for both the United States and Israel, is exacerbated by the pent-up animosity between Mr. Obama and Mr. Netanyahu, which has been stoked by...
