Report: Israeli leader turned down regional peace initiative

JERUSALEM (AP) — An Israeli newspaper reported Sunday that Prime Netanyahu reportedly rejected the offer, saying he would not be able to garner enough support for it in his hard-line coalition government.

The initiative was also reportedly the basis of short-lived talks with opposition leader Isaac Herzog to join the government, a plan that quickly unraveled when Netanyahu chose to bring in nationalist leader Avigdor Lieberman instead and appoint him defense minister.Minister Benjamin Netanyahu turned down a regional peace initiative last year that was brokered by then-American Secretary of State John Kerry, in apparent contradiction to his stated goal of involving regional powers in resolving Israel's conflict with the Palestinians.

Haaretz reported that Netanyahu took part in a secret summit that Kerry organized in the southern Jordanian port city of Aqaba last February and included Jordan's King Abdullah II and Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sissi. According to the report, which cited anonymous Obama administration officials, Kerry proposed regional recognition of Israel as a Jewish state — a key Netanyahu demand — alongside a renewal of peace talks with the Palestinians with the support of the Arab countries. Netanyahu reportedly rejected the offer, saying he would not be able to garner enough support for it in his hard-line coalition government.

Arpaio successor pulls back on immigration holds in jails

It may violate a state law requiring law enforcement agencies to cooperate Arpaio's immigration raids and sweeps generated the most controversy during his time as sheriff, but his opponents also took him to task for how immigrants were treated in his jail system. That includes the presence of immigration officers at the jails and the "courtesy holds" that Penzone eliminated. An activist arrested during a protest against Trump and Arpaio last year sued the sheriff late last year and accused the office of unlawfully holding her overnight for a federal immigration check even though she is a U.S. citizen. Jacinta Gonzalez Goodman and others blocked off a road leading to a protest at a Trump rally in Fountain Hills during his presidential campaign.

with ICE on immigration matters to the fullest extent of the law, opening the door for sanctions against the county if the move isn't rescinded,

Kavanagh said.

The new rules come as President Donald Trump has issued executive orders demanding a tougher stance on immigration, carrying through on promises that were a centerpiece of the celebrity businessman's campaign.

Immigration officers have arrested hundreds of immigrants in the country illegally in the last week, including gang members, sex offenders and drug traffickers.

Immigrants say agents are also sweeping up people wanted on lesser offenses and tearing apart families.

The government says the actions are a continuation of policies during the presidency of Barack Obama, whose administration deported a record number of immigrants.

The actions and ensuing controversy are a replay of sorts from what happened in Phoenix over the last decade under Arpaio, who campaigned alongside Trump on several occasions.

 

 

 

 

 

Barcelona protest to support refugees draws thousands

Some 160,000 people have demonstrated in Barcelona to demand the The route took them from the Barcelona city centre to the Mediterranean coast - an end-point seen as highly symbolic given the fact that about 5,000 refugees are estimated to have perished in the sea in 2016.government allow more refugees into Spain from war-hit areas such as Syria. Marchers carrying placards and banners- many in

the Catalan language - accused the Madrid government of dragging its feet over the issue.

They say it has not honoured its pledge made in 2015 to allow more than 17,000 refugees into Spain within two years.

Over that time, Spain has accepted only about 1,100 refugees.

Police gave the estimate of the turnout at Saturday's protest in the capital of Catalonia,

organised by the Our Home is Your Home group, with many denouncing the government for not living up to its promises. Protest organisers quoted

by local media said that as many as 300,000 people took part.

What's next after one month of Trump drama

Four weeks. Twenty-eight days. It feels like 280 days. I feel 280. If 9/11 was far more serious and scary, and the ramifications lasted far beyond that fateful morning. But in a way it was a more conventional (though nonetheless horrifying) story of geopolitics and ideology. We journalists knew how to cover them both. Donald Trump is exhausting even the news-hungry political journalists, I wonder what he is doing to the rest of

the world.

For the first three weeks I started the day repeating a mantra, "watch what he does, not what he says."

I've discarded that notion.

What Mr Trump says and how he says it is an important part of his presidency.

His rhetoric, both in person and Twitter, appeals to his supporters.

It's new and fresh and irreverent.

But one day it could also be his undoing. He is increasingly losing respect among key Republicans,

and he needs them to govern

effectively.

This is my fourth American administration

and we've never seen anything like it for sheer non-stop drama. Lewinsky was a daily feast of slightly prudish titillation, but it was one story line, and in the end it was just sex.

 

 

 

 

 

China piles pressure on North Korea by banning coal imports

China is suspending all imports of coal from North Korea as part of efforts to increase pressure on the country over its latest missile test. China's commerce ministry said the ban would operate until the end of 2017. It follows reports last week that China had rejected a shipment of North Korean coal worth $1m (£806,000; €942,100). The ban brings China, North Korea's only ally, closer to fully implementing tough sanctions aimed at stopping Pyongyang's nuclear weapons programme. Coal is North Korea's biggest export, with its shipments to China a mainstay of the country's fragile economy.

The latest development comes just days after the suspicious killing of the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's half brother, Kim Jong-nam, at an airport in Malaysia. Kim, who was largely estranged from his family, had spent much of his time overseas in the Chinese territory of Macau, where he was seen to have had the protection of China.

In an October op-ed for The Hill, Republican consultant Shermichael Singleton said Trump was taking the Republican Party to a "new moral low."

"We allowed that hostile takeover to happen on our watch," he wrote. "This individual recognized a moment of great disparity in the

Republican base and, like cancer, attacked and spread, consuming everything in his path."

Singleton's piece criticized Trump's rhetoric about African Americans during the campaign.

After the election, the 26-year-old worked with Ben Carson during his confirmation process to become HUD secretary. Singleton, who is African American, then joined the department as a senior adviser.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Congress Goes Home, and Constituents Fired-Up Over Health Care Are Waiting

As Republican lawmakers prepare to leave Washington for a weeklong In email alerts, MoveOn.org is mobilizing members to attend town-hall-style meetings across the country, and it has set up a website, ResistanceRecess.com, to help people find them. The site includes a guide to “health care recess messaging.” (“The best and most impactful questions are ones where someone shares their story about what the Affordable Care Act has meant to them or their family,” it instructs.)

congressional recess, liberal groups and Democratic Party organizers are hoping to make their homecoming as noisy and uncomfortable as possible.

But national organizers concede they are playing catch-up to a “dam-bursting level” of grass-roots activism that has bubbled up from street protests and the small groups that have swelled into crowds outside local congressional offices.

Protests against the Republican agenda have become routine since President Trump took office,

with momentum building through widely shared videos of lawmakers being confronted by constituents angry over efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Now, national groups see the recess as the chance to capitalize on that local activism, with a show of might aimed at declaring the arrival of a new, and sustainable, political force — barely three months after their humiliating defeat in November.

 

 

 

 

 

 

China grants Trump a trademark he's been seeking for a decade

The Chinese government has granted President Trump and his business something they had been seeking for more than a decade: trademark protection for the use of the Trump name in the construction industry.

Trump fought unsuccessfully in Chinese courts for years to try to gain control of the trademark, but his fortunes changed suddenly last year during the latter stages of his campaign for the White House.

China's trademark review board announced in September it had invalidated a rival claim for the Trump trademark, clearing the way for Trump to move in. In November, soon after the election, it awarded the trademark to the Trump Organization.

The trademark was officially registered this week after a three-month notice period for objections expired.

The sequence of events makes some ethics experts uncomfortable: Chinese authorities reversed their position as Trump's political star rose.

White House addresses Bannon's views on Islam

Guilt by Association... is a legitimate position

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer on Wednesday addressed President Donald Trump’s views on Islam following media coverage of comments made by top advisor Steve Bannon.

HOF QB Dan Fouts says Terrell Owens got 'fair evaluation'

Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Fouts was a member of the Hall of Fame selection committee for the first time in Houston, and said he believes receiver Terrell Owens got a fair shake before his case didn't advance.

"I think his numbers are very worthy, but again on the other side of it, I think his actions on and off the field, on the sidelines, in the locker room, and the fact he played for so many teams and was such a great player, the question that comes back to me is if he was such a great player, why did so many of those teams get rid of him?" Fouts said in a visit with The Midday 180 in Nashville. "And I think we all know the answers."

$1 million wager placed on underdog Falcons

LAS VEGAS -- Big Super Bowl bets began trickling in at sportsbooks Friday, including a $1 million wager on the underdog Atlanta Falcons. The New England Patriots remain consensus 3-point favorites in Super Bowl LI and were attracting the majority of the money at most shops. But overall the action was generally balanced, leaving the sportsbooks in a comfortable position heading into the weekend.

Sportsbook operator CG Technology, which took the $1 million bet on the Falcons +3 on Friday, had slightly more money on Atlanta, even with 61 percent of the point spread bets being on the Patriots.

Why Trump wants you to hate the media
(CNN)If you watched President Trump's astonishing press conference on Thursday, you might be forgiven for concluding that the most urgent problem facing America is that the media "is out of control." Some media "is fantastic," the president allowed. But on the whole, journalism is plagued by "false, horrible, fake reporting."

Trump White House Faces Flurry of Probes After Flynn Resigns

Who's really surprised by this "Debacle"?

Chaos, Chaotic, Fragmented, Unstable, Un-trust Worthy

Senate Foreign Relations Chairman Bob Corker led the way, saying it’s time for Congress to launch a more comprehensive probe into Russian contacts with Trump allies, while Republican Roy Blunt of Missouri, who sits on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said it’s "likely" that Flynn will be called to testify before the panel. 

Blunt’s committee is already looking into the election-meddling allegations against Russia. Senate Armed Services Chairman John McCain of Arizona and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina also said Tuesday that Flynn’s resignation is a critical turning point. 

The world of Donald Trump, described by the daily life of a man that does nothing but rub people the wrong way,

promoted to the greatest and most powerful seat on earth by people who appreciate a man that is anything opposite of the stiffs that stink up the halls of the house of representatives with such a repugnant odor that even acts of treason has gone un punished by those who are supposed to charge members with treason when appropriate.

Citizens of clean conscious have been dragged kicking and screening, along a dark road of broken glass, leaving scraped off peaces of flesh along the way.

It now is to late to change this current direction because of the 500 plus years of systematically designed upper echelon corruption

that is so good that members of congress and the senate work 10 hours a week, while being paid better that 99% of Americans, with a health plan so good that Jesus would be jealous, while they demand that Obamacare be removed for millions.....

and believe it or not, some of the still working crooks, actually have written rules that allow them to collect "Retirement Pay"

while they are currently still working for the house.

So....

Smile because we are all being raped.

Senate Confirms Jeff Sessions As Attorney General

Racist History, welcomed with Open Arms

American Hidden Racism has yet to be totally realized by the entire During the past month, Democrats have brought up the past allegations of racism against Sessions, 

which sank his nomination by President Ronald Reagan three decades ago to be a federal judge. 

The then-U.S. attorney admitted he had made insensitive remarks and called some top civil rights groups such as the ACLU "un-American."American citizenship... because the "in-humane and barbaric"

act and actions by, not just those members of the many racist groups..., that have remained protected from view..., it is the supporting and cheering crowds of entire family members... in support of the beating or lynching of blacks, that were protected and hidden from public and media view.

In fact..., it wasn't until the mid 60s, via the use of the television camera's, capturing and broadcasting recordings of the civil rights marchers being beaten with clubs, attacked with police dogs, and the use of powerful water hoses used as projectiles against human flesh, did any sign of refuting of the racist America...

take place.

Today, Jeff Sessions, refused as a federal judge years ago, specifically due to his racist past, have been anointed as the top federal power wielder in these United States of America.

Perhaps a gift to the world, because now, every act and action by Jeff Sessions, provides a reasoning for all of those who publish their own perspective via a website, will begin to peal back the hidden racist acts of Jeff Session's past, thereby providing the world with the facts of his racist ways

that have been taking place for 60 plus years.

Teens sentenced to read diverse books for vandalism charges

This is evidence of "Failed Parenting"

Judge Avelina Jacob, of the Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court, handed down the sentence earlier this month. It requires the teens to read one book per month for the next 12 months from a list including titles like Harper Lee's "To Kill a Mockingbird," Elie Wiesel's "Night" and Chinua Achebe's "Things Fall Apart," Deputy Commonwealth's Attorney Alex Rueda said.

The boys, all age 16 or 17, were sentenced for destruction of private property and unlawful entry after they vandalized the Ashburn Colored School on September 30, said Rueda, who recommended the sentence to the judge. 

The Ashburn Colored School was established in 1892 to provide local African-American children who belonged to an adjacent church an education, said Deep Sran, the founder of Loudoun School for the Gifted, which owns the property the Ashburn Colored School is on.The responsibility as a parent, is to provide quality decision making, and continued guidance of conscientious awareness that would ensure that the children, are aware of their daily acts and actions, such that the child recognizes, how his/her words and actions, negatively, or positively, affects others.

A Failed Parent is validated by the decisions and the daily poor acts and actions of his/her child/children.

These children validate the failure of their parents in these actions of "racism" that has now been viewed by the entire world, yet, the weight of these children actions will negatively affect them more because they will be identified as

"the ones" who are racist and raised to be racist.

Perhaps these children maybe able to change for the good, but, one has to point the eye of judgment on the parents, more so than the children because it is the parents who have failed.

Pakistan says it has killed more than 100 militants in a security crackdown following Thursday's attack on a shrine that left at least 80 people dead.

A suicide bomber blew himself up among devotees at the Sufi shrine in the town of Sehwan.

So-called Islamic State said it had carried out the attack.

It was the latest in a string of bombings by the jihadist group.

In response, some 18 militants were killed in southern Sindh province, where the Sufi shrine is located, and another 13 in the north-west, officials said. It is unclear where the other alleged terrorists were killed.

Border crossings with Afghanistan have been closed and rockets have been fired into two Afghan provinces.

Funerals for victims have been taking place on Friday and the Sindh provincial government has announced three days of mourning.

Some 250 people were also wounded in the attack.

for next season, as the star quarterback reportedly expects the Dallas Cowboys to release him. While there have been plenty of rumblings about the Cowboys exploring trades for Romo, ESPN’s Ed Werder reports that Romo is of the belief that the team will cut him.
