    In a late night vote, Israel's Parliament passed the 'nation-state' bill also called the Nationality Law by a 62-55 vote. The bill allows the state of Israel to encourage the establishment of Jewish only communities. It was hailed by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who said after the passage: "This is a defining moment, long live the stat of Israel!". The former British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson spoke from the back benches of the House of Commons in what was dubbed his farewell speech today. Johnson said Prime Minister Theresa May was "dithering" about Brexit, but it is "not too late...

    Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz has made clear his strong stance on unlimited mass migration after he refused to take part in an EU-wide effort to distribute the migrants of a fishing boat that landed on an Italian island Monday. Calling on the nations of Europe to work harder to prevent illegal migration to the continent, Kurz also pointed to the fact that migrant ships could be sent to countries outside of the European Union to disembark their human cargo. The comments came after 450 migrants were picked up from a wooden fishing boat on Saturday, and brought to Sicily to...

    Times of Israel ^ | 15 July 2018, 10:15 pm | TOI Staff
    The archive of Iranian nuclear documents seized by the Israeli Mossad from a Tehran warehouse in January shows that Iran’s program to build nuclear weapons “was almost certainly larger, more sophisticated and better organized” than was suspected, unnamed nuclear experts were quoted as saying in the New York Times on Sunday, after being shown selected documents from the haul by US reporters. One of the Iranian documents specifies plans to build a first “batch of five weapons” and discusses sites for possible underground nuclear tests, the Times reported, after one of its reporters was given limited access to the haul...
  • Germans fear Donald Trump more than Vladimir Putin, poll finds [YouGov; gefälschte nachrichten]

    Deutsche Welle ^ | 07.15.2018 | Jefferson Chase
    When asked which world leader was the greater threat to world security, 64 percent of respondents chose US President Donald Trump over his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin. That’s according to a YouGov poll published on the eve of Trump’s meeting with Putin in Helsinki. And the German antipathy toward Trump doesn’t end there: 56 percent of respondents thought that Putin was more competent than Trump, with only 5 percent preferring the latter on that score. Thirty-six percent of Germans find Putin more likable than Trump, while 6 percent say the opposite — although most respondents refused to indicate a preference...
  • Obama's sister releases memoir

    Politico ^ | April 30, 2012 | DONOVAN SLACK
    Adding to the growing list of books about President Barack Obama and his family is a new memoir by his sister who was raised in Africa. Auma Obama, who now works at CARE International in Nairobi, didn't meet Barack until the 1980s and it's unclear how much new ground the book breaks. But she did have an interesting vantage point: that of the Obama family in Africa and how her brother's political career impacted it. In published excerpts of "And Then Life Happens," she wrote about meeting Hillary Clinton after the nasty primary race in 2008 and the media frenzy...
  • Indiana Jones Isn’t Wrong—The Nazis’ Fascination With The Occult Was Very Real

    The Federalist ^ | 07/14/2018 | Nathanael Blake
    The Nazi fascination with fantastical science and the occult has long made for spectacular entertainment. From Indiana Jones trying to save the Holy Grail and the Ark of the Covenant from the Nazis, to comic-book super-soldier serums, to the reoccurring use of supernatural charlatanism to dupe the Germans in Hogan’s Heroes, pop culture has propagated the idea of the Nazis as obsessed with mysticism and mad science. And pop historians have eagerly provided background for these tales.How much of it is true?Quite a lot, it turns out. Recently released in paperback by Yale University Press, Eric Kurlander’s book Hitler’s...

    Donald Trump apologised to Theresa May over an incendiary interview criticising her premiership, and hailed UK-US relations as the “highest level of special”. After intensive talks at Chequers, an emollient US president showered praise on the “incredible” Prime Minister and said she was “doing a fantastic job”.

  • German Dioceses Respond to ‘Give Protestants Communion’ Guidelines. It’s Not Good.

    One Peter Five ^ | July 12, 2018 | Maike Hickson
    At an astonishing pace, one third of the 27 German dioceses have already now come out with statements concerning the recently published controversial intercommunion guide of the German Bishops’ Conference. Only one diocese has, so far, declared that it will hold back on implementing the new guide allowing, in individual cases, Protestant spouses of Catholics to receive Holy Communion on a regular basis, and without converting to the Catholic Faith, and even without a prior sacramental confession. The most troubling message came out just last week from the bishop of Würzburg, Franz Jung, who invited, for the weekend of 5...

You’re just been Trumped.Up till now every time NATO threw a party the US was asked to bring the Porterhouse steaks, tenderloins, baked potatoes, baked beans and adult beverages while Belgium contributed chocolates, France, cheese and Britain, tea. Yesterday our VSGPDT filed his second formal complaint to the laggards, letting them know that if they expected the US to keep attending these annual picnics they would have to start bringing more to the table.And quelle surprise!

    Fox News ^ | July 11,2018 | By Raheem Kassam
    America is a nation obsessed with political approval ratings like no other. But the U.S. media seems ignorant to the fact that President Trump is currently one of the most popular leaders of a major Western nation in the world today. Guffaw if you like, but those who are both regarded and regard themselves as “better” leaders have lower numbers than the American president — and while his are trending up, some of theirs are in free fall. When Barack Obama left the world stage, having commanded a mid-40s average approval rating over the course of his presidency, the New...

    American Thinker ^ | July 11,2018 | Tiberiu Dianu
    President Donald Trump exposed in a spectacular way, in front of millions of home viewers, how the Europeans milk money from the United States for “protection against Russia,” while they give millions of dollars for getting supplied with oil and gas from the same, supposedly “enemy,” country. Trump is not the first U.S. president who brings this up to the European allies. But he will be the first U.S. president who will definitely do something to fix this decade-long anomaly. Thomas Lifson adds: Trump's critics that contend he is in Putin's pocket have some explaining to do how this fits...

    After a day filled with tension and fissures in the powerful NATO military alliance, President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump gabbed with their counterparts at a cocktail party with a jazz band. The pair arrived at a cocktail party with fellow world leaders and spouses at Cinquantenaire, a park designed in the 19th century. The first lady wore a $7,450 Elie Saab white patterned dress, changing out of a navy blue dress by Belgian designer Raf Simmons for Calvin Klein.

    Polish people love America Poland wouldn't mind seeing Trump as the advocate of Eastern European interests in Brussels. It's not just about a stronger NATO presence, but also about history and shared values. Many Poles see it as a given that the US should be responsible for their security, as the country suffered at the hands of neighboring Germany and Russia in the past and feels cheated by other European states. The PiS government agrees wholeheartedly with Trump's climate and migration policies, as well as criticism of the German-Russian Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project. And there are concrete economic...

    Angela Merkel appeared to hit back at US President Donald Trump's claim that "Germany is a captive of Russia" by drawing on her own upbringing in Soviet-controlled East Germany. "I wanted to say that, because of current events, I have witnessed this myself, that a part of Germany was controlled by the Soviet Union. And I am very happy that we are today unified in freedom as the Federal Republic of Germany," she said in an arrival statement at the NATO Summit Wednesday. Merkel, who was born in Hamburg in 1954, has spoken on numerous occasions about her upbringing under...

    “Germany is totally controlled by Russia … They will be getting between 60 and 70 percent of their energy from Russia and a new pipeline, and you tell me if that is appropriate because I think its not,” Trump said. The U.S. president was speaking at a press conference in front of NATO representatives ahead of a two-day summit. The Trump administration’s policies indicate it views security and trade as intimately linked. And when it comes to the trade balance, no ally will be spared. Speaking in Brussels, Belgium on the first leg of his European trip, the U.S. president...
