    President Trump just landed in Rome, the next destination on the president's four-nation, five-stop tour of the Middle East and Europe, after wrapping up a two-day visit to Israel.(snip) President Trump meets with Pope Francis at the Vatican on Wednesday. The White House said Mr. Trump will celebrate the Catholic religion, as well as the contributions of Catholics to the U.S., and the president said in his weekly address that he was looking forward to talking with the Pope about "how Christian teachings can help put the world on a path to justice, freedom, and peace."

  • Where to Buy Michelle Obama’s Trendy One-Shoulder Top (Barf alert - she's vacationing in Italy)

    The ever-polished Michelle Obama stepped out this weekend in Montalcino, Italy, and gave us the best inspiration for a vacation style to steal for the summer. The former First Lady wore a pink one-shoulder shirt from Teija, a Finnish designer who trained under Christoper Bailey at Burberry before creating her own label. The shirt added a playful note to Michelle’s post–White House wardrobe, which has largely consisted of tea-length dresses and cashmere cardigans. She complemented the look with cropped white jeans, simple flat sandals, and gold hoops. This chic top is the perfect piece to wear all summer: It...
  • Europe's Leaders: Shielding Themselves from Reality

    Gatestone Institute ^ | May 23, 2017 | Judith Bergman
    Shielding heads of state from seeing the consequences of the policies that they themselves have forced on the entire European continent represents a staggering new level of hypocrisy. Why do the citizens of Europe need to 'broaden their horizons,' while the people in power protect themselves from the reality they themselves imposed on everyone else? This attitude, far from democratic, borders on the atmosphere prevalent in Europe during the bygone days of Europe's absolute monarchs. While it is true that "everyone knows about our prosperity and lifestyle," the answer to that problem is not fatalistically to sit back and wait...

    The Obamas were spotted touring the city of Siena, Tuscany on Monday but it was the former first lady who grabbed everyone’s attention with her wardrobe. Michelle Obama’s off-duty look has apparently gone off the shoulder as she bared plenty of skin in a white strappy top with high-waisted pants. Her husband opted for a more polished shirt and pants as the couple stepped out of the Duomo di Siena, the Siena Cathedral, the Daily Mail reported.

    Italy’s Court of Cassation ruled on Monday that a Sikh man was not allowed to carry a knife considered sacred by his religion in public. Migrants have a duty to conform to local values in the society they choose to move to, the court said, even if those values are different from in their home country. The kirpan, a small knife or sword, is one of five religious articles many Sikhs carry with them at all times. But the legality of carrying the curved knife in public has been debated in several countries where Sikhs are a minority. Denmark became...

    The Italian government on Thursday dissolved four town councils due to evidence of mafia infiltration. The affected towns were Laureana di Borrello, Bova Marina, and Gioia Taura, all located in Reggio Calabria at the toe of Italy’s boot, as well as San Felice a Cancello in Caserta, Campania. […] Government-appointed commissions will take over council duties, the ministry said, and local elections scheduled for June 11th will no longer take place in two of the Sicilian towns. […] In 2016, the government disbanded the local council of Corleone because of suspected mafia infiltration of the Sicilian town which helped inspire...

    Europe’s establishment breathed a sigh of relief after the pro-European Union centrist Emmanuel Macron was elected French president this week. But another populist storm is brewing in Italy, where the euroskeptic 5 Star Movement has remained strong. Fueled by discontent with slow growth, high unemployment and disillusionment with mainstream politicians, 5-Star has won local elections in Rome, Turin and elsewhere, partly on the strength of its leaders’ call for a referendum on Italy’s use of the European single currency. Pollsters say about 30% of Italian voters support the movement founded by comedian Beppe Grillo, a level of popularity that has...

    It seems like Obama has taken a page out of Leonardo DiCaprio's book of “do as I say, not as I do” and took a private jet to Milan. Not only that, he had a 14 car convoy to get into the city, which also included protection from above with a helicopter.

    The refugee crisis worldwide has become the focus of many news reports. While some cover the humanitarian efforts, the underlying story often goes untold. Many areas that are flooded with refugees see a new and emerging crisis tied to an increase in violence and crime. One such event was caught live on the news and broadcast in real time. A news reporter in Rome, Italy was brutally attacked by a group of refugees while covering the need for humanitarian efforts for the group . Correspondent Francesca Parisella was doing a live news spot about the needs of refugees at the...

    Oct 13,2008 The Nation -- The elections in Iran are nearly a year away, but it's encouraging to see the emerging possibility of a new bid for the presidency by former President Mohammad Khatami. Last week, he hinted that he's considering running against Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the nutball whose support lies mainly in the paramilitary Basij force and elements of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps. Can Khatami ju-jitsu the all-powerful Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khamenei and his election-rigging Guardian Council? Can Khatami loom so large that even Khamenei might choose to support him over Ahmadinejad? Might Khamenei decide to back Khatami as...

    The New York Times recently reported that President Donald Trump is apparently “very upset” that Amanda Knox backed Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential race, since Trump had been a vocal defender of the Seattle native when she was imprisoned in Italy after being accused of murdering her roommate. And now, Knox is speaking out, writing in a new op-ed for the Los Angeles Times that she doesn’t owe him her loyalty. “Just as a person’s support of me should not be based upon my politics or identity, hinging instead on the fact of my innocence, so should my politics...

    General Motors' (GM.N) Venezuelan subsidiary has sent a message to almost 2,700 staff informing them that they are no longer employed by the company and had received severance pay in their bank accounts, according to two employees. A Venezuelan court last week ordered the seizure of the company's Valencia plant, ruling in favor of two dealers that had filed a case in 2000 against the subsidiary on grounds they had not complied with an agreed sale of 10,000 vehicles. Workers say that before the seizure was announced, GM had been dismantling the plant, which has not produced a car since...
