    The British Royal House will “likely” send a member of the family to Israel on an official visit, senior diplomats said, indicating a decision to end a decades-long silent boycott of the Jewish state. British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson told Israeli President Reuven Rivlin he would ask the Royal House to arrange a visit this year during Johnson’s visit to Israel this week, The Times of London reported Thursday. Senior diplomats then told the Daily Express such a visit was “likely” to occur this year, the centennial anniversary of the Balfour Declaration. …

    Kuwait hanged seven prisoners in a mass execution on Wednesday, including a royal family member and a woman convicted of killing 58 women and children when she set fire to a wedding tent — the first death sentences carried out in several years in the oil-rich emirate. Those executed included a Bangladeshi, a Filipina, an Ethiopian, two Kuwaitis and two Egyptians, according to a statement carried on the state-run KUNA news agency. KUNA said that all had been convicted of murder except the Bangladeshi man, who was convicted of rape, kidnapping and theft. Kuwait's ruler, Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al...
  • Did US Ally Qatar Free Imprisoned Americans in Exchange for Al Qaeda Terrorist?

    Problematic, in a very big way even if the offer was made.Qatar’s ties to Al Qaeda and ISIS aren’t news. They’ve effectively served as intermediaries in everything from ransom exchanges for hostages to Taliban negotiations. But actually trying to secure terrorist swaps for prisoners on their own behalf would have been a new frontier. Before he was released from a U.S. maximum-security prison last week, a confessed al Qaeda sleeper agent was offered up in a potential prisoner swap that would have freed two Americans held abroad.According to two individuals with direct knowledge of the case, the proposition was...

    Moscow, Fabruary 2, Interfax - Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia has said the inquiry into the killing of the family of Nicholas II will be completed once the truth is found. "I have received highest-level reassurances that there will be no hurry and no tying down of the end of the inquiry to any particular date. The inquiry will last as long as is necessary in order establish the truth," the patriarch said at the current Bishops' Council in Moscow on Tuesday. Unlike the situation in the 1990s, the state has given representatives of the Church - archbishops,...

    The construction of a church in honour of Tsar Nicholas II and his family has been completed in Moscow. The ground breaking and initial construction began three years ago, in March of 2012. On March 8, 2013 the Head of the Russian Imperial House, HIH Grand Duchess Maria Vladimirovna visited the site of the new church during an official visit to Moscow. The grand duchess lit a candle in memory of the Holy Royal Martyrs, and then took the time to speak and have tea with local parishers. The first liturgy was held on July 17, 2014 in a temporary...

    Oh, good grief! Karl Rove believes Jeb Bush is “the biggest thinker” in the Republican party today. Rove was asked today if Jeb Bush was going to run for president. “If I were betting I’d say yes. But, here’s the thing. He’s a very deliberate thoughtful guy. He’s the biggest thinker on our side. I’m glad he’s thinking about doing it.” Via FOX News Sunday: (VIDEO-AT-LINK) Here are a few examples of Jeb Bush’s big thinking ideas: ** Illegal immigrants come to US in an “act of love” ** Illegal immigrants are “risk takers” ** Ted Cruz needs to have...

    Michelle Obama and her daughters, Sasha and Malia, are in China to promote family, a U.S.-China diplomacy, and they are doing it in style. Obama wore a leather-and-suede patchwork Derek Lam dress. She paired it with thigh high boots, and seemed to be dressed for slightly chilly weather. Sasha and Malia were equally as chic. The sisters wore complementary outfits, as they are known to do. Sasha wore a velvet red skirt, a black top and tights. Malia wore a shiny silver pleated skirt and a brown shirt. The Obamas were invited by another stylish lady, Chinese First Lady Peng...

    Welsh schoolteacher Norma Walmsley has opened up on her time when she worked for one of the richest families on the planet - the Brunei Royal Family.It's a tale straight out of Oscar Hammerstein’s classic musical The King and I. Former Holywell schoolteacher Norma Walmsley has lifted the lid on her time as a governess to the Brunei Royal Family, who have ruled the country for more than 600 years. She tutored their 12 children for 10 years after being personally head- hunted by the Sultan of Brunei himself. Now 73 and settled in Pantsasaph, near Holywell, Norma’s life now...
  • Buckingham Palace Security Guards Mistook Prince Andrew for Just Some Guy

    On Monday, Buckingham Palace had its biggest security breach in 30 years — a man scaled a 12-foot fence and meandered into the State Rooms before he was noticed — and it seems the security guards there were still on high alert on Wednesday. So, when two officers spotted a man they didn't recognize wandering the palace garden, they rushed over to demand identification and ordered him to "put your hands up and get on the ground." While that's generally good, if forceful, practice when it comes to palace guarding, the man they confronted turned out be Queen Elizabeth's other...
  • Who Cares About The Royal Family? (Seriously, a Monarchy in 2013?)

    Clash Daily ^ | 8-8-13 | Patrick Kane
    Heartbreakingly, the headlines and hashtags of the world over the past few days have been devoted to the royal family’s newest branch on the sordid family tree. This instead of the sickening fact that monarchy still exists in the twenty-first century. It is a tragedy that the idea of monarchy was not banished to out of print dictionaries centuries ago, to serve only as a musty reminder of a barbaric and puerile step in the history of humankind. While I harbor no resentment for the young George Alexander Louis, I find it impossible to muster up even a scrap of...

    Just over a month ago, we chronicled the efforts of the North Carolina House and Senate to reform the states uncompetitive tax code and move towards a pro-growth tax system. At that point, the House and Senate had two competing bills and were attempting to broker a compromise that also had the approval of the North Carolina’s Governor, Pat McCrory. Last week, an agreement was reached and both the House and the Senate passed an outstanding tax reform package designed to super charge the economy. The Governor has signed that bill this afternoon, ushering in a game changing tax reform...

    LONDON — After months of ever more frenetic anticipation and speculation in Britain and around the world, the Duchess of Cambridge, the former Kate Middleton, entered St. Mary’s Hospital in the Paddington district of London on Monday to prepare for the birth of her first child and was “in the early stages of labor,” the royal family announced. A brief message on Twitter was the first of a series of carefully scripted disclosures set to culminate in the announcement of an event that seems certain to draw unparalleled media coverage, even in the annals of Britain’s headline-making royal family. Because...

    It's one of the more interesting what-ifs of the past few decades. What would have happened if both George W. and Jeb Bush had won their gubernatorial bids in 1994? Which brother would have run for President in 2000 against Al Gore? Late in George W. Bush's second presidential term, I asked his father this question. The senior Bush shrugged, waving off the hypothetical. "Who knows?" he replied. "Didn't happen." Then, after the briefest of pauses, the 41st President added, "If Jeb wants his shot, he should have it. He's done the work, been a governor--a very fine governor, I...

    In an exclusive sit-down interview with The Brody File, Jeb Bush began to sketch out his case for President of the United States if he decides to run next year. “It will be based on my record. And that record was one of solving problems from completely from a conservative perspective. I cut taxes every year, I shrunk the size of government,” Jeb Bush tells The Brody File. And as for his critics who say he’s too mainstream establishment he offers this: “I will be able to, I think, manage my way through all the chirpers out there.” We sat...

    Something has become very apparent in this country. The rules are always different if you are a Democrat. That’s whether its a Congressman whose boyfriend runs a prostitution ring from their shared apartment, which doesn't reflect negatively for the Congressman, or a Treasury Secretary who won't pay his own taxes, or an Attorney General who funnels firearms to Mexican drug traffickers, and can't get fired for that. The list is endless. A recent article on a very liberal web site several days ago bashed Mitt Romney after he gave a campaign worker what it called a “Handful of cash,” when...
