    Jordan’s King Abdullah warned on Monday that any unilateral Israeli moves to annex territory in the occupied West Bank would fuel instability and dim hopes of a final settlement of the decades-old Arab-Israeli conflict. The monarch told British lawmakers the only path to a comprehensive and lasting Middle East peace was the establishment of an independent Palestinian state based on land captured by Israel in the 1967 war, and with East Jerusalem as its capital. “Any unilateral Israeli measure to annex lands in the West Bank is unacceptable, as it would undermine the prospects of achieving peace and stability in...

    Greater New York Black Lives Matter president Hawk Newsome joined "The Story" Wednesday to discuss the direction of the movement in the wake of George Floyd's death in police custody and the subsequent demonstrations across the country, many of which have sparked destruction and violence. "You ... have said that violence is sometimes necessary in these situations," host Martha MacCallum told Newsome. "What exactly is it that you hope to achieve through violence?" "Wow, it's interesting that you would pose that question like that," Newsome responded, "because this country is built upon violence. What was the American Revolution, what's our...

    BERLIN—American and Russian negotiators have concluded a round of nuclear arms control talks in Vienna, aimed at producing a new agreement to replace the New START treaty that expires in February—the last remaining pact constraining the arsenals of the world’s two major nuclear powers.U.S. negotiator Marshall Billingslea told reporters on June 23 that a day of high-level “marathon discussions” ended late Monday night and had been productive enough to conclude with the establishment of several technical working groups to delve deeper into the issues with the idea of paving the way for a second round of talks by late...

    WASHINGTON—The U.S. labor market made a stunning comeback in May, beating expectations by 10 million jobs. As states begin to reopen, business owners are turning more optimistic about the future, signaling that the pandemic-induced recession may be short-lived. The U.S. economy added 2.5 million jobs last month as states started to ease lockdown restrictions. The strong employment numbers shocked economists who had forecast nearly 8 million job losses in May. The jobless rate dropped from 14.7 percent in April to 13.3 percent, well below the consensus estimate of nearly 20 percent. The significant upswing in employment suggests that the U.S....

    THE UNITED STATES announced that it has sent 2 million doses of the anti-malaria drug touted as a coronavirus treatment by President Donald Trump to Brazil. In a joint statement Sunday, the U.S. and Brazil said the hydroxychloroquine will be used as a prophylactic to defend health care workers in Brazil against the virus, as well as a treatment to help Brazilians who become infected. The U.S. is also sending 1,000 ventilators to Brazil, which has the second most cases of COVID-19 in the world. Globally, health officials report more than 6.18 million cases of the coronavirus and more than...

    In April something was bugging me… a familiarity amid the COVID lock-down status & another time… I couldn’t quite put my finger on it until a dear friend reminded me.Many U.S. states are acting like the early 1980’s and the imposition of Martial law in Poland to target the Solidarity movement.  Subsequently I wrote about it on a Twitter thread, because the parallels were really quite remarkable.Both Poland circa 1980 and the U.S. friction in 2020, center around fragile economic issues. Both were an outcome of state control; and the key connection is government targeting control over the workers.In both...

    Dozens of Chinese “propaganda” centers still operate across the United States, even as U.S. lawmakers debate how to hold the communist country accountable for withholding information about the coronavirus, which originated in China’s Wuhan province.For years, Campus Reform has reported on the number of Confucius Institutes on U.S. college campuses. Funded by the communist regime, these centers are marketed as Chinese language and culture centers. However, U.S. intelligence officials have warned that these centers are little more than “propaganda” arms of the communist country.Even the former Chinese propaganda minister,  Liu Yushan, wrote in a 2010 article for Chinese-state media:“With regard to key...

    BRUSSELS (Reuters) - World leaders and organisations pledged $8 billion to research, manufacture and distribute a possible vaccine and treatments for COVID-19 on Monday, but the United States refused to contribute to the global effort. Organisers included the European Union and non-EU countries Britain, Norway and Saudi Arabia. Leaders from Japan, Canada, South Africa and dozens of other countries joined the virtual event, while China, where the virus is believed to have originated, was only represented by its ambassador to the European Union. Governments aim to continue raising funds for several weeks or months, building on efforts by the World...
  • China Warns Of Possible Armed Conflict With US Over Coronavirus Backlash

    An internal report presented to Chinese President Xi Jinping and other top leaders concludes that global anti-China sentiment is at a level not seen since the 1989 Tiananmen Square crackdown, and recommends preparing for a worst-case scenario of armed conflict with the United States, according to Reuters, citing people familiar with the content of the document. The report, created by the China Institutes of Contemporary Internal Relations (CICIR) – which is affiliated with the Ministry of State Security – suggests that the wave of anti-China sentiment is led by the United States, which sees China’s rise as a global superpower...

    A seething woman wearing USA gear is leaning out of a pickup truck in Denver, Colorado. She points at her sign - “Land of the Free” - while around her, vehicles blare their horns. Facing the metal mass are a pair of health care workers clad in teal scrubs. They’re serene, blocking the crosswalk with crossed arms. In San Francisco, a line of cars creeps through downtown, sleeping bags and tents lashed on their roofs. The drivers blare their horns, signs posted on their windows demand “#HotelRoomsNotHospitalBeds” and “Test us now! We need to know!” On the sidewalk, advocates wearing...

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) on Wednesday ordered that all New York City subway cars be cleaned every night by Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) workers to ensure the safety of essential personnel during the coronavirus pandemic. “Any essential worker who shows up and gets on a train should know that that train was disinfected the night before,” Cuomo told reporters at his daily coronavirus press briefing. “Letting them endanger their own life and endanger the lives of others is not helping anyone,” Cuomo said. The governor said that he wants the MTA to present to him a plan for...

    Millions of Americans who have been thrown out of work during the coronavirus pandemic have been unable to register for unemployment benefits since the U.S. economy entered a free fall, according to a poll released on Tuesday (April 28). The left-leaning Economic Policy Institute found in an online poll that for every 10 people who have successfully filed unemployment claims, three or four people have been unable to register and another two people have not tried to apply at a time of acute economic crisis. **SNIP** EPI's survey indicates that an additional 8.9 million to 13.9 million people have been...

    Hackers are trying to infect organizations throughout the world with a popular strain of malware by sending emails that appear to be from an Egyptian oil company. In research published Tuesday, Romanian antivirus company BitDefender noted a surge in attempted phishing attacks that try to trick users into downloading malware by masquerading as Enppi, an oil company owned by the Egyptian government. The malware, known as Agent Tesla, is a spyware tool which enables hackers to monitor keystrokes, steal data about file downloads and collect username and password credentials from internet browsers, among other capabilities. The number of attacks spiked...

    With the unwinding of the U.S.-Philippines Visiting Forces Agreement (VFA), the utility of Washington’s oldest alliance in the Indo-Pacific hangs in the balance.In February, Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte ordered the termination of a 1998 Visiting Forces Agreement (VFA) with the United States, accusing Washington of “neocolonial” interference in his country’s domestic affairs. As political disagreements continue to fester, recent Chinese actions in the South China Sea underscore the need for a functioning U.S.-Philippines alliance. Richard Haass of the Council on Foreign Relations, writing in Foreign Affairs earlier this month, warned that declining U.S. leadership and mounting global discord, coupled with...

Learn more about the financial and staffing nexus between Soros’ Open Society Foundations (OSF) and the U.S. government in a Judicial Watch special report.

    Many times, when Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar talk, it’s their lips that move but the voice of Karl Marx that comes pouring out. In videos posted Thursday night by The Hill, Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and Omar, D-Minn., suggested a radical transformation of significant parts of the American economy that are essential for fighting the effects of the coronavirus. After complaining that America’s “systemic priorities” are all wrong, AOC said, “We have to start demanding and organizing from the bottom up - from grassroots movements, from nurses to warehouse workers to grocery store employees to the halls of Congress, demanding...
