Trump Puts Best Face on Border Deal, as Aides Try to Assuage an Angry Right

In pursuit of a wall, President Trump ran into one. A single-minded drive to force Congress to finance his signature campaign promise has left Mr. Trump right back where he started, this time seeking a way to climb over the political barrier in his way after trying to charge through it did not work.

As he inched closer to reluctantly accepting a bipartisan spending compromise without the money he demanded for his border wall, Mr. Trump offered no acknowledgment on Wednesday that his pressure tactics had failed even as aides sought to minimize the damage by tamping down criticism on the right.

One call was made to Lou Dobbs, a favorite of Mr. Trump’s whose Fox Business Network show he often tries to catch live. Another was placed to Sean Hannity, the Fox host who regularly talks with the president. The message: Mr. Trump deserved support because he still forced concessions that he would never have gotten without a five-week partial government shutdown.

DOJ Considered Recruiting Mike Pence to Remove Trump from Office

Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe just dropped a bombshell revelation in his new book: the DOJ talked about recruiting Mike Pence to remove Trump from the presidency.

The Department of Justice reportedly held meetings discussing the possibility of having Mike Pence replace Trump as the president, justifying the de facto coup by invoking the 25th Amendment.

The discussions reportedly occurred following James Comey’s unceremonious ousting as director of the FBI. Rod Rosenstein, the current Deputy Attorney General, was a part of these discussions. It was reported last year that Rosenstein actually suggested removing Trump via the 25th Amemdment, comments he later described as not serious.

The International Court of Justice rules Iran has legal claim to $2bn in assets frozen by US

Tehran says it owns $2bn in frozen assets, but US court ruled cash must be given to victims of attacks blamed on Iran.

The International Court of Justice (ICJ) has ruled that Iran has the right to recover two billion dollars in frozen assets in the United States.

In a ruling issued on Wednesday, the 15-member court in The Hague said Tehran can proceed with a bid to recover the assets, which Washington says must go to victims of attacks blamed on Iran.

Judges rejected US claims the case should be thrown out because Iran had "unclean hands" from alleged links to "terrorism">>>

Trump repeatedly suggested Venezuela invasion, stunning top aides – report

Donald Trump repeatedly raised the possibility of invading Venezuela in talks with his top aides at the White House, according to a new report.

Trump brought up the subject of an invasion in public in August last year, saying: “We have many options for Venezuela, including a possible military option, if necessary.” But the president’s musings about the possibility of a US invasion were more extensive and persistent than that public declaration, according to the Associated Press.

The previous day Trump reportedly took his top officials by surprise in an Oval Office meeting, asking why the US could not intervene to remove the government of Nicolás Maduro on the grounds that Venezuela’s political and economic unraveling represented a threat to the region.

Andrew Cuomo Demands White House Meeting on Tax Reform, Trump Turns It Into Lecture on Abortion

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo requested a meeting with President Trump over tax reform that he claims is hurting his state’s revenue, but it quickly turned into a lecture on fracking and late-term abortion.

The meeting, which Law 360 described as “Cuomo return(ing) empty-handed,” did not go as planned by the extremist Democrat. The sole intent of the meeting was to discuss a$10,000 cap on federal deduction for state and local taxes (SALT). Cuomo is citing the provision for a drop in over $2 billion in tax revenue.

“I told the president myself today: SALT repeal is hurting us. And if you hurt New York, you’re harming the economic engine of the nation,” he bragged after the meeting.

White House notes suggest a different story. While the President and Cuomo did discuss the matter, Trump turned the tables and reminded the Governor that exorbitantly high taxes in his state might actually be the problem.

CNN's Chris Cuomo: Trump treats Ilhan Omar's bigotry differently because she's Muslim

CNN anchor Chris Cuomo blasted President Donald Trump for his swift condemnation of Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn while keeping “silent” on Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa.

On Tuesday, the president called on Omar to resign after she suggested on Twitter that Republicans who support Israel are bought by groups like AIPAC.

Cuomo criticized Omar’s tweets and called the question whether House Democrats should do more to punish the freshman congresswoman a “legit question.” He then dismissed the “futile” comparison of her remarks versus King’s, who was stripped from his committees after he defended the terms “white supremacist” and “white nationalist.”

Trump orders government to prioritize artificial intelligence

President Donald Trump on Monday ordered the US administration to give greater priority to artificial intelligence, a move seen as firing up a battle for leadership with China.

The American AI Initiative executive order calls for the administration to "devote the full resources of the federal government" to help fuel AI innovation.

"Americans have profited tremendously from being the early developers and international leaders in AI," a White House statement said.

"However, as the pace of AI innovation increases around the world, we cannot sit idly by and presume that our leadership is guaranteed."

Hands off ‘our hemisphere’ or Venezuela pays the price: US Senator warns Russia

“I think that it could happen,” Inhofe (R-Oklahoma) told a group of reporters on Tuesday. “You’ve got a guy down there that is killing everybody. You could have him put together a base that Russia would have on our hemisphere. And if those things happen, it may be to the point where we’ll have to intervene with troops and respond.”

ICJ to rule on Iran's legal claim to recover $2bn frozen in US

Tehran says it owns $2bn in frozen assets, but US court ruled cash must be given to victims of attacks blamed on Iran.

On Wednesday, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) is set to decide reach a verdict on a bid by Iran to recover $2bn in frozen assets that the United States says must be paid to victims of attacks it blamed on Tehran.

The ruling threatens to further escalate the dispute between the two former allies and comes after a decision in October when the same court ordered the US to lift sanctions on humanitarian goods for Iran.

Tensions between Tehran and Washington are already high around the anniversary of the 40th anniversary of the Islamic Republic revolution as well as Wednesday's Middle East summit in Poland, which observers say is aimed at isolating Iran.

Trump Calls on Rep. Ilhan Omar to Resign Over Anti-Semitic Tweets

President Donald Trump slammed Rep. Ilhan Omar’s apology for publishing anti-Semitic tweets, saying it was “lame” and called on her to resign from Congress.

Omar went on an anti-Semitic twitter rant over the weekend, prompting a backlash from prominent politicians on both sides of the political aisle. She used a stereotype about Jews being motivated by money, then accused a prominent lobbying group, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), of paying members of Congress to support Israel.

Upon getting heat from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi over the remarks, Omar issued an apology that amounted to ‘sorry, not sorry.’

Adam Schiff Is Trying To Delegitimize Trump by Investigating His Finances

On a Sunday morning talk show, Rep. Adam Schiff, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, vowed to continue investigating President Trump’s finances and foreign connections for as long as it takes.

So, let me get this right: Hillary Clinton, a politician, or to be more specific, a former secretary of State, can sell the Russians our uranium but Donald Trump, a businessman, cannot conduct business in a foreign country, like any other American entrepreneur?

It is evident that the left will not be satisfied until Trump is gone. They must be worried he will win in 2020. How anyone can not see their motivation for launching intensive investigation after investigation is beyond me.

Making Globalism Great Again - Did Trump Fold To The Deep State?

Maybe Donald Trump isn’t as stupid as I thought. I’d hate to have to admit that publicly, but it does kind of seem like he has put one over on the liberal corporate media this time. Scanning the recent Trump-related news, I couldn’t help but notice a significant decline in the number of references to Weimar, Germany, Adolf Hitler, and “the brink of fascism” that America has supposedly been teetering on since Hillary Clinton lost the election. I googled around pretty well, I think, but I couldn’t find a single editorial warning that Trump is about to summarily cancel the U.S. Constitution, dissolve Congress, and proclaim himself Führer. Nor did I see any mention of Auschwitz, or any other Nazi stuff … which is weird, considering that the Hitler hysteria has been a standard feature of the official narrative we’ve been subjected to for the last two years.

Tehran 'Will Raze Tel Aviv, Haifa' if US Attacks - Iranian Islamic Guard Comdr.

On Monday, hundreds of thousands of Iranians held nation-wide rallies to mark the 40th anniversary of the fall of the Shah and the triumph of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the Shiite cleric who led an Islamic Revolution that rattles the West to this day.

Tehran "will raze Tel Aviv and Haifa" to the ground if Washington attacks Iran, the IRNA news agency cited an Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) commander as saying on Monday.

"The United States does not have the courage to shoot a single bullet at us despite all its defensive and military assets. But if they attack us, we will raze Tel Aviv and Haifa to the ground," Yadollah Javani, the Guards' deputy head for political affairs said during a rally celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Islamic revolution.

‘Russians at the doorstep’: US says Germany must ‘use its leverage’ to keep Kremlin in line

The US ambassador to Germany says Berlin needs to escalate its stand-off with Russia by investing more in weapons, and pressuring it over energy links. Moscow believes that Germany won't submit to American "blackmail.”

“The Germans have the leverage with Russia. Imagine if Chancellor Merkel stood up and said: Because of the Russian behavior, because of the malign activity in the increased offense, we cannot give you more influence by buying your energy,” Richard Grenell, a career diplomat who was assigned to Germany last year, told Welt am Sonntag newspaper.

The current White House administration has persistently urged Angela Merkel’s government to restrict or halt the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project, which is due to be completed later this year.

Capitol Hill Cowards: Why Congress Is Trying to Undermine Trump’s Troop Withdrawal Plan

Afghanistan is America’s longest war, at seventeen years and counting. It has run longer than the Mexican-American War, Civil War, Spanish-American War, World War I, World War II, and Korean War combined. Yet Congress has conducted minimal oversight and done nothing as the executive branch’s aim devolved into pushing failure onto the next administration.

In Syria Washington chose to enter a civil war of minimal security concern to America. Syria was allied with the Soviet Union during the Cold War. Washington’s previous forays in similarly imploding Middle Eastern nations—Lebanon and Libya—turned out badly. The executive branch concocted ever more outlandish duties for American military personnel: extirpate ISIS, exclude Iran, confront Russia, pacify Turkey, protect Kurds, and pressure Damascus. Yet Congress never voted on the continual usurpation of legislative power.

US Blockade on Venezuela Has Cost US$350 Billion

According to the study, these economic and financial attacks "are usually the prelude to military intervention."

The Economic Debates Unit of the Latin American Geopolitical Strategic Center (CELAG) released a report on "the economic consequences of the boycott against Venezuela," on Friday, in which it is proved that the "international financial blockade to Venezuela since 2013 is the main responsible for the economic crisis."

According to CELAG's report, the financial and economic blockade that was mainly promoted by the United States, and enforced by its allies, would have cost Venezuela around US$350 billion "in the production of goods and services between 2013 and 2017."

Blocking a country financially is paramount when trying to asphyxiate the national economy. The external attacks are able to undermine the economic and productive capacity of the country, and therefore, destroy the economy. According to the study, these economic and financial attacks "are usually the prelude to military intervention."

Some were deported, others feel safer in Afghan jail than home and little is known about a US-accused Egyptian prisoner.

But when the US relinquished control of the prison, now called Parwan Detention Facility, to Afghan security forces in December 2014, Washington renounced responsibility for the men once held there.

"The US aims at breaking down the architecture of arms control which has been built for many years between our two countries," Antonov told TASS in an interview ahead of the Diplomats' Day.

Venezuela moves to replace US executives on Citgo board

Citgo is facing unprecedented challenges to its finances and management after the US government imposed sanctions.

Venezuela's state-run oil company Petroleos de Venezuela (PDVSA) is taking steps to remove at least two American executives from the board of directors of its United States's refining subsidiary, Citgo Petroleum Corp, according to people close to the matter.

Citgo is facing unprecedented challenges to its finances and management after the US government last week imposed tough sanctions on PDVSA designed to prevent oil revenue from going to leftist President Nicolas Maduro.

The US and dozens of other nations have refused to recognise Maduro, viewing his re-election last year to another six-year term as fraudulent.

Venezuelan's self-proclaimed president Juan Guaido is setting up bank accounts with US help that would take income accrued by Citgo, Venezuela's top foreign asset, to finance an interim government

KEEPING UP WITH THE KIMS

NORTH KOREA’S LEADER HAS CHARMED TRUMP, XI AND MOON. BUT ARE THEY ALL JUST KEEPING UP WITH THE KIMS?

When Kim Jong-un delivered his annual New Year’s address last month, the scene was unrecognisable from his first speech as leader of North Korea six years prior. Gone were the Maoist suit and lapel pin featuring the images of his father, previous ruler Kim Jong-il, and grandfather Kim Il-sung, who founded the country.

In their place was a suit and tie that would be at home in any office in London or New York. Rather than sheltering behind a podium in an austere auditorium, his voice faltering intermittently as it had before, Kim sat composed in an armchair in a wood-panelled office.
***
Kim’s 30-minute address focused heavily on the economy, but he found time to say that North Korea was willing to continue denuclearisation talks with the United States – and to warn that the hermit kingdom would take a “new path” if Washington did not ease its pressure against it.

Mind you, when I say that these are dangerous times, it is not because of violent crime, which remains at an all-time low, or because of terrorism, which is statistically rare, or because our borders are being invaded by armies, which data reports from the Department of Homeland Security refute.

No, the real danger that we face comes from none other than the U.S. government and the powers it has granted to its standing army to steal, cheat, harass, detain, brutalize, terrorize, torture and kill.

Washington’s Perilous Regime Change in Venezuela Won’t Work Out as Planned

The United States government led by President Donald Trump has entered a dangerous moral universe.

As the cult of regime change in Washington walks farther and farther down a destructive path where they see one another only, and as their new adventure in Venezuela points for yet another geopolitical and humanitarian disaster, just like what happened in Syria and Yemen, they will end up having abandoned some of their self-styled fundamental claims about morality, human rights, respect for fundamental norms of international law.

In making their pitch, they have forced more than a dozen European countries to recognize the head of Venezuela’s National Assembly, Juan Guaidó, as the country’s legitimate president. In lockstep with the US, Guaidó has asserted that the time for dialogue is over. His intransigent opposition to negotiations is perhaps another reason to question his motives. This comes despite continued United Nations, Chinese and Russian support for Nicolás Maduro’s government and national dialogue.

There is no question that Venezuelans are suffering and some even want to see a change in governance. But that has to come through national dialogue and democratic means and not foreign-instigated regime change>>>

Pussy John Bolton and His Codpiece Mustache: Examining the Freak Show

American government has become a collection of sordid and dangerous clowns. It was not always thus. Until Bush II, those governing were never lunatics. Eisenhower, Truman, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Obama, Clinton had their defects, were sometimes corrupt, and could be disagreed with on many grounds. They weren’t crazy. Today’s administration would seem unwholesome in a New York bus station at three in the morning. They are not normal American politicians.

In particular they seem to be pushing for war with Iran, China, Russia, and Venezuela. And–this is important–their behavior is not a matter of liberals catfighting with conservatives. All former presidents carefully avoided war with the Soviet Union, which carefully avoided war with America.

Trump's mixed messages on the Middle East

President Trump's State of the Union address revealed no clear foreign policy vision or coherent Middle East strategy

Although President Donald Trump did not spend a lot of time on the Middle East issues in his largely self-congratulatory State of the Union address before Congress on February 6, what he did say on these matters was a mix of positions reflecting isolationist strands of his "America first" approach on the one hand, and some neo-conservative positions on the other.

By Threats, Sanctions, and War, Washington Rules the World

One of the most disturbing aspects of the past two years of Donald Trump foreign policy has been the assumption that decisions made by the United States are binding on the rest of the world. Apart from time of war, no other nation has ever sought to prevent other nations from trading with each other. And the United States has also uniquely sought to penalize other countries for alleged crimes that did not occur in the US and that did not involve American citizens, while also insisting that all nations must comply with whatever penalties are meted out by Washington.

Venezuela: Another US Manufactured Attempted Coup

If you don’t like the country’s president, just find a new one. That’s the meaning of Donald Trump’s intervention in Venezuela last week. The US agreed to back one of the opposition leaders, Juan Guaido, who dramatically swore himself in as president at a demonstration and is now receiving the backing not just of the US, but Canada, Brazil, the UK, a number of neighbouring countries, as the legitimate leader.

US Congresswoman: Trump Supporting Al-Qaeda, Saudis Main Sponsors of Terrorism

US Democrat Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard strongly criticized President Donald Trump for supporting Al-Qaeda terrorist group, and said the Riyadh government is the main state supporter of terrorism in the region.

"Trump says he is going to focus on counter-terrorism while simultaneously supporting/helping al-Qaeda and partnering with the Saudis, the actual leading state sponsors of terror, who spread the extremist ideology that fuels the likes of ISIS (ISIL) and al-Qaeda," Gabbard wrote on his Twitter account while referring to a recent report by CNN on Saudi Arabia's support for terrorist groups, specially al-Qaeda.

A new report by CNN found that Saudi Arabia gave US-made weapons to al-Qaeda-linked fighters in Yemen, in violation of a US-Saudi arms deal.

Appetite for Destruction: US Wants to Remove Venezuela From the Playing Field
The Trump Administration has ruled out any dialogue with Venezuelan President Maduro.

The regime change cult on the Capitol Hill has further dismissed the idea of mediation within Venezuela. It’s appetite for destruction and it’s happening again right in front of our eyes:

- Efforts by the United Nations and Latin American leaders to resolve the Venezuela crisis with diplomacy and mediation has gone nowhere, as the US is against such efforts, saying the world needs to unite behind a demand for unconditional regime change.

- The new sheriff in Washington has declared the “time for dialogue with Maduro has long passed,” and that the US now wants everyone to accept Juan Guaido as his replacement.>>>

Pinkerton: Cuomo & Northam vs. Trump — the Democrats’ Abortion Extremism Brought the Life Issue Back to Life

To put it mildly, throughout his public career, Donald Trump has not always been seen as a champion of the pro-life cause. However, his career is not over yet—and in fact, a sudden cascade of events is making him into a pro-life stalwart, as the Right to Life movement makes its biggest comeback in decades.

Ironically, the renewed prominence of the anti-abortion cause has been the doing of pro-abortion Democrats. On January 22, New York governor Andrew Cuomo signed into law the Reproductive Health Act, which fully allows for abortions after 24 weeks of pregnancy; that is, right up to the moment of birth. Critics dubbed the bill “infanticide,” recalling the words of former New York’s former Democratic senator, Daniel Patrick Moynihan, who, back in the 1990s, said that such a procedure “is as close to infanticide as anything I have come upon.”

Secret Service ‘Aware’ of Former ESPN Host Jemele Hill’s Assassination Tweet

On Tuesday night, former ESPN host and current Atlantic writer Jemele Hill, tweeted an assassination reference during President Trump’s State of the Union Address. On Wednesday, we found out the Secret Service is “aware” of Hill’s tweet, and stands by their obligation to “investigate all threats related to our protectees.”

“While the Secret Service is aware of the subject’s comments, we cannot confirm or comment on the absence or existence of specific investigations. We can say, however, the Secret Service investigates all threats related to our protectees,” the Secret Service told the Washington Examiner in an email.

The trouble began when Hill responded to remarks from another Twitter user during the SOTU.

Trump’s at War with U.S. Intelligence – and (for Once) He’s Right

In the TV show Designated Survivor, Kiefer Sutherland plays a neophyte president, Tom Kirkman, who tries to bring decency and common sense to the Oval Office after a terrorist attack has wiped out most of the US government.

In one episode in the second season, President Kirkman is dealing with the loss of someone close to him. As a result, he has become distracted and indecisive. After a rebel force seizes a US trade delegation in a foreign country, the president vacillates about using military force to free the hostages. He decides, against the recommendations of all his advisors, to pay a ransom to get the Americans released.

“The old Tom Kirkman would have advocated military force,” one of his advisors says. “In the last six months, he’s withdrawn 50 percent of our troops from Iraq and Syria. He’s introduced a bill to double the budget for Homeland Security. And now ransom.”

“There will not be another shutdown,” she insisted. “No, it’s not going to happen.”

US Plans to Approach Iranian Borders in Cooperation with ISIL

Hashd Al-Shaabi Commander: US Plans to Approach Iranian Borders in Cooperation with ISIL
A senior commander of Hashd al-Shaabi (Iraqi popular forces) warned that the US in collaboration with the ISIL terrorists has hatched plots to approach the strategic bordering regions with Iran.

***
Al-Ma'amouri said that the ISIL has increased efforts to infiltrate into regions near Khaneqein at the Iraqi-Iranian borders after Trump declared withdrawal of forces from Syria, adding that the US forces want to find a foothold in certain parts of Hawz Hamrin by creating tensions in the region.

He stated that all Iraqi groups have voiced opposition to this measure, noting that Hashd al-Shaabi will not allow the US to deploy in Diyali and Cobra base.

In relevant remarks last month, a senior commander of Hashd al-Shaabi in al-Anbar province warned that the US forces are attempting to provoke the Iraqi popular forces into starting war against them.

A second career employee detailed to the Trump White House is also considering joining Schiff’s staff, according to people familiar with the matter. They didn’t identify the person.

‘Neo-con wine in an America First bottle’: Foreign policy analysts rail against Trump’s SOTU address

Donald Trump’s State of the Union speech sent mixed messages about where the president stands on foreign policy, analysts told RT, as his anti-intervention views clash with his threats against Iran and Venezuela.

While the commander-in-chief praised US troops serving in Afghanistan and Syria as having “fought with valor,” he gave little indication of a timeline for a possible pull-out from the region, despite previous sentiments to the contrary. The omission did not sit well with analysts.

Michael Maloof, a former Pentagon official, told RT that Trump’s failure to provide specifics about a withdrawal timeline from the warzones was disappointing – especially because the president had earlier indicated that troops would be returning home in the near future.

US blocks UN statement criticising Israeli expulsion of monitors from Hebron

The United States has blocked a draft United Nations Security Council statement on Wednesday that would have expressed regret at Israel's decision to eject a foreign observer force from the Palestinian city of Hebron, diplomats said.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said last week he would not renew the mandate of the Temporary International Presence in Hebron (TIPH), accusing the observers of unspecified anti-Israel activity.

Norway, which has headed the multi-country observer mission for the past 22 years, said: "The one-sided Israeli decision can mean that the implementation of an important part of the Oslo accords is discontinued."

The Hill's Morning Report - House Dems prepare to swamp Trump with investigations

As one investigation around President Trump appears to be winding down, others are ramping up, all but ensuring that a cloud of investigations will hang over the administration for the entirety of Trump’s first term in office.

CNN reports that criminal prosecutor Scott Meisler is departing special counsel Robert Mueller’s team, the latest sign that “the special counsel is winding down the investigation,” although speculation is swirling around several “uncharged individuals” referenced in court filings (CNN).

Over the past two weeks, acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker and Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), who was closely tied into the investigations as chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee in the last Congress, have indicated that a final report from Mueller could be coming soon.

Enter Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the new chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, who has been staffing up with lawyers and investigators.

Israel paper: US interfering in polls to help Netanyahu?

An Israeli paper speculates that the administration of US President Donald Trump could be meddling in Israel’s elections to help secure a win for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

In a report on Tuesday, The Jerusalem Post raised the suspicion after Trump shared a photo directly from Netanyahu’s Instagram account, which showed an election poster made by Netanyahu’s ruling Likud party of the two shaking hands and smiling.

The advertisement captioned “Netanyahu: In a different league” prompted similar criticism after first showing up in Tel Aviv.

It has now turned up elsewhere across streets in the Israeli-occupied territories, said Arutz Sheva on its website.

The Jerusalem Post further pointed to the large numbers of likes and comments under Trump’s share, saying this raised “concerns about election interference.”

Trump’s Absurd Claim that Americans Are Free from Government Coercion

By James Bovard

In his State of the Union address Tuesday night, President Trump received rapturous applause from Republicans for his declaration: “America was founded on liberty and independence — not government coercion, domination, and control. We are born free, and we will stay free.” But this uplifting sentiment cannot survive even a brief glance at the federal statute book or the heavy-handed enforcement tactics by federal, state, and local bureaucracies across the nation.

In reality, the threat of government punishment permeates Americans’ daily lives more than ever before...

Speaker Nancy Pelosi was visibly unamused during President Donald Trump's State of the Union speech Tuesday night, frowning, biting her cheeks, rolling her eyes and pursing her lips throughout the night when he mentioned ideas her party disagrees with.

At other times she read along with the president's remarks, holding up her print out of his speech in view behind him as he spoke on the dais before her.

She smiled at times as she read along but also kept her poker face firmly in place at others. Her jaw shift multiple times during the night as her eyes darted around the House chamber instead of focusing on the president before her.

White House Sees No Need to Balance Pro-Israel Bias on Peace Plan

While the details of President Trump’s “deal of the century” peace plan for Israel and the Palestinians are still secret, officials offered some spoiler alerts, saying that the White House feels no need to try to offer a balanced plan, or do anything to show themselves to be honest brokers.

Instead, they say the administration wants to underscore that it is “proudly supportive of Israel,” and feels no need to balance the peace proposal with anything that the Palestinians might want, because they don’t see an “equivalency” between the two.

Trump SOTU Post-Mortem: "Tonight, I Ask You To Choose Greatness"

As expected, his tone has been largely conciliatory, despite delivering the speech to a divided Congress for the first time since his inauguration. And the bonhomie could be felt across the aisle, as lawmakers from both parties stood and delivered a standing ovation to the president as he walked up to the House rostrum. For roughly one-third of the lawmakers in attendance, this is the first SOTU they have ever attended.

Trump started his speech by saying he stood ready to work with both parties to fulfill our nation's "unlimited potential", and that he hoped "we can work together not as two parties, but as one nation." As telegraphed ahead of the speech, Trump described his agenda "not as a Republican agenda, or a Democrat agenda, but as an agenda for the American people."

And that agenda is...

Reduce the costs of health care and price of prescription drugs.
Immigration that is safe lawful and secure
And pursue a foreign policy that puts Americans first.

Trump’s State of the Union Earned Monster Positive Reviews

It’s not often we get to say President Donald Trump earned rave reviews for anything – but Trump earned near-universal praise for his State of the Union speech Tuesday evening.

Despite a media that will no doubt quibble over every word and phrase, and even revise their take and the general feeling of the American people days afterward, Trump earned high marks for the speech before Congress.

The address earned ovation after ovation from his Republican colleagues but was probably most notable for actually getting Nancy Pelosi to applaud several times, for Democrat women standing up and celebrating the successes of their gender under this administration, and even an off-script moment where the entire chamber sang Happy Birthday to a Holocaust survivor, conducted by the President himself.

“Iranians – including our Jewish compatriots – are commemorating 40 years of progress despite US pressure, just as Donald Trump again makes accusations against us,” Mohammad Javad Zarif told his Twitter followers, referring to the US president’s attacks on Iran in his 2019 State of the Union address.

Takeaways From Trump’s 2019 State of the Union Address

For more than a month, Mr. Trump has threatened to invoke a state of emergency along the southern border with Mexico, in an attempt to circumvent Congress, which has refused to give him $5.7 billion for a border wall.

But it was not until this week that Senate Republicans — many of whom vehemently oppose the idea on the grounds that it tramples legislative prerogative — made it clear that diverting funding from other projects for a wall, in the name of a national emergency, was a nonstarter.

For the moment, Mr. Trump heeded their wishes. The emergency declaration was not among his demands for increased border security.

It was, to a significant degree, an act of political self-protection.

About 10 Democrats have already launched campaigns to challenge Trump, and a dozen more could enter the race for their party`s nomination. US Senator Cory Booker, who announced his own bid last Friday, said Trump`s call for unity on Tuesday was hollow.
