    President Biden called off a scheduled trip to Chicago late Tuesday as Democratic divisions over the fate of two massive bills worth a total of $4.7 trillion threatened to torpedo the president’s domestic agenda. Biden was scheduled to hit the Windy City Wednesday to give remarks on COVID-19 vaccine mandates for businesses. However, a White House official said that the visit would be postponed so the president can help push both pieces of legislation over the finish line in the House of Representative

    Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) said on Sunday that “not much was accomplished, but no damage was done” during President Biden’s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday. Christie said on ABC's “This Week” that while he didn't believe Biden accomplished much, the president avoided any major mistakes. “I think the bar was low because he didn't get in conflicts with anybody. There wasn't any kind of difficult moments except for the one with Kaitlan Collins,” Christie said, referring to a heated exchange when the CNN White House reporter asked Biden why he was confident Putin would...

    A Jewish college student, Jordyn Wright who is attending McGill University in Montreal, Canada, who also happens to be on the school’s student government was given a rather hateful ultimatum that resounds with anti-Semitism. She was told that she needed to cancel her trip to Israel or get booted off the student government. A non-Jewish member of the student government on the same trip wasn’t given the ultimatum. The College Fix explained: Wright told The College Fix the trip is scheduled for Dec. 29 to Jan. 8 and she is still going. She describes it online as “visiting Israel and...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — who’s waged war against the wealthy with a 70 percent tax rate proposal — shelled out more than $250 on a recent trip to the hair salon, according to a new report. The socialist darling dropped big bucks — $80 on a haircut and $180 for lowlights — last month at Last Tangle Salon in downtown Washington, DC, the Washington Times reported, citing sources. The outlet noted that a 20 percent tip, or $52, would bring the total to just over $312, while suggesting she could’ve saved about $100 for a chop at the “government-subsidized” Capitol...

    .............The broad outlines of Bernie’s long-running infatuation with all things Soviet Russian are available to diligent researchers. We know Bernie went to Moscow for his honeymoon. This is sort of passed over and laughed off by his supporters, but it should not be. It that era it was considered a signature event in the life of a dedicated American communist. Something many American communists looked forward to as a culmination of their connections with the movement. This was frequently accompanies by other highly symbolic gestures, like getting married in a Red Dress, or having the wedding ceremony itself in the...

    Mayor Bill de Blasio will bundle up and head to Iowa this weekend in his long-shot quest for the White House, The Post has learned. The mayor will arrive in Iowa on Saturday afternoon and depart Sunday afternoon. He expects to have events in Des Moines and Sioux City, though final details are still being worked out, according to a person familiar with the arrangements. The travel comes just a week after de Blasio canceled a scheduled trip to another early presidential primary state, New Hampshire, following the tragic friendly-fire death of New York City police Detective Brian Simonsen.

    Vi and I have just returned from Chengdu, a Chinese village of seventeen million and the gateway to Tibet. Since China is of some interest to the US these days, I thought a description of sorts, actually more in the nature of a disordered travelog,  might be of interest. I hadn’t been to the country for twelve years and, before that, not since living in Taiwan in the mid-Seventies. Each time, the changes were astonishing. Herewith some notes:A caveat: we never got more than three hundred miles from the city and do not pretend to describe the country beyond what...

    Contrary to what has been said in the pro-government media in Turkey, President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s three-day official visit to Britain this week has turned out to be counterproductive, London-based journalist Firdevs Robison said on her website. She said that apart from supportive lead articles in the conservative Times and the Daily Telegraph newspapers, British Prime Minister Theresa May and her government were intensely criticised for inviting Erdoğan in the run-up to Turkish presidential and parliamentary on June 24.  Human rights and press freedom organisations meanwhile urged May to publicly call for the release of more than 100 journalists jailed in...

    In US President Donald Trump's final speech in Israel on Tuesday, he praised Jerusalem's diversity and vowed to stand with Israel in the global war on terror. ... "I make this promise to you: My administration will always stand with Israel." This remark earned an additional handshake from Netanyahu. After reiterating that civilized nations must band together against terror, he said, "Israelis are murdered by terrorists wielding knives... Hamas and Hezbollah launch rockets into Israeli communities where school children... must run to the bomb shelters with fear but with speed.

    President Obama will depart Monday on his final foreign trip of his presidency — and the main topic of the three-country tour is expected to be President-elect Donald Trump. “We certainly expect that the election will be the primary topic on people’s minds everywhere we go,” deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes told reporters, the Wall Street Journal reported. The president will travel to Athens on Monday, then to Berlin on Wednesday and finally Lima, Peru, on Friday. He’s expected to return to Washington, DC, on Sunday. In addition to meeting Greek and German leaders, Obama will meet with President...

    The repeated use of the term "dialogue" was irritating. It's a buzzword among today's technocrats. They use it as a softening word, one that signals that they're are not coming to dominate us, but instead to "listen" and play the role of "honest brokers." At the end of the speech, Francis appealed to a spirit of solicitude for the well being of the family. But, again, he steered clear of specifics, making no mention of no-fault divorce or same-sex marriage. He called for the abolition of the death penalty. This has been a priority for the Church going back to...

    Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is urging President Barack Obama to cancel a planned visit to Nike’s headquarters over the low wages it pays foreign workers. Obama is scheduled to travel to the sneaker giant’s Beaverton, Ore., headquarters Friday, part of the president’s effort to galvanize support for the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a multinational trade deal between the United States and 11 other countries, including Vietnam — where Nike manufactures most of its shoes. “Given Nike’s legacy of offshoring American jobs and exploiting low-wage workers, I would strongly encourage you to cancel this meeting,” Sanders wrote in a letter to Obama Wednesday....

    At his weekly Cabinet meeting Sunday, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu focused primarily on international issues including the Iran nuclear agreement, the struggle with Islamic State, and global anti-Semitism. "In the coming weeks, the major powers are liable to reach a framework agreement with Iran, an agreement that is liable to leave Iran as a nuclear threshold state, which would endanger - first and foremost - the existence of the State of Israel," Netanyahu warned as he began the meeting. "This is the same Iran that has taken over Lebanon and Syria and is now taking over Yemen and Iraq. This...

    U.S. Rep. Eric Cantor, R-7th, is portraying himself as a bastion against illegal immigration in fending off a June 10 primary challenge from Dave Brat, a professor at Randolph-Macon College. "Just yesterday, a liberal pro-amnesty group held a rally and encouraged their supporters to vote in our election for our opponent because Congressman Cantor is standing up to Obama on illegal immigration," Cantor’s campaign said in a May 29 email to supporters. The statement caught PolitiFact’s attention because we attended the May 28 rally at the state Capitol held by Casa de Virginia, a group that supports immigration reform.

    President Barack Obama’s two day trip to South Africa in June cost taxpayers more than $2.2 million on hotel room and rental car costs alone, according to documents released by the State Department on Sunday. All told, the trip cost as much as $100 million according to a pair of Republican House members. The first family’s trip to sub-Saharan Africa was criticized by Reps. Mark Meadows (R., N.C.) and Steve Stockman (R., Texas) in June for its high price tag in the wake of budget cuts due to sequestration, though the visit went on as planned. The president’s “VIP visit”...

    With the prospects growing of a government shutdown on Tuesday, the White House said Thursday that President Obama has no intention of postponing a week-long trip to Asia that begins Oct. 6. “Our schedule remains as planned,” said White House press secretary Jay Carney. He said one of the president’s jobs is to ensure that promising economic markets “are exploited” for the benefit of Americans. “That’s one of his responsibilities. He’s going to fulfill it,” Mr. Carney said. The president will visit Indonesia, where he grew up as a boy, and the Philippines as part of a trip that will...
