The Prime Minister will formally notify Brussels of the UK´s exit in nine days time, beginning the two-year countdown until Brexit is complete. It will also kick off the timetable for formal talks on Britain´s exit, with the 27 remaining EU member states set to outline their negotiating position in the next few weeks. Britain´s ambassador to the EU Sir Tim Barrow this morning informed the office of European Council President Donald Tusk of the UK’s intention to invoke Article 50 next

Being dragged to the finish line kicking and screaming. I suspect she will come up with something else to delay it.

THIS is the moment history was made as the Government finally triggered Article 50 and provided official confirmation that Britain will leave the European Union. UK ambassador Sir Tim Barrow hand delivered a letter, signed personally by Theresa May, outlining the country’s desire to start divorce proceedings with the bloc immediately. At a carefully stage managed meeting in Brussels, from which the television cameras were banned, the PM’s top diplomat finally delivered the long-awaited notification to EU Council chief Donald Tusk. Sir Tim, carrying the all-important letter in a vintage attache case, smiled for the cameras but did not say anything as

Former Knesset Member Yoni Chetboun tells in an interview to Arutz Sheva about the purpose of his visit to the United States, where he is participating in the AIPAC conference. Asked whether his presence at the conference hints at political intentions, he replied that the goals of his visit and his participation have to do with security, and less so politics. When the cameras shut down in the closed rooms, things are said differently. There one hears "both official representatives in US politics and Israeli representatives, and you see how everything moves to the right. "You hear how the idea

Russian troops are within ´hand-grenade range´ of American forces in parts of Syria, sparking fears of escalated tension in the region. The two nations are working together with Kurdish YPG fighters in the country to combat ISIS in Syria and neighboring Iraq. Though the countries´ commanders are in contact, the Pentagon stopped military-to-military cooperation following Russia´s annexation of the Crimean Peninsula. Recently the forces ´have converged literally within hand-grenade range of one another´, warned Army Lt. Gen.

How Trump got elected remains a mystery to me. Everywhere I go there’s nothing but Liberals. I have yet to meet a Conservative or anyone who voted for Trump. At least I never meet them face to face out in the open. Nothing but Liberals and they…no they are not afraid to speak up Like at the drug store this morning where I went to pick up my prescriptions. This couple, man and wife recognized me. They had complaints. My picture appears in Arutz Sheva and on my books and it’s not my picture that bothers Liberals so much, it’s what I’m

Hamas develops new ´high-powered´

Hamas has recently developed a new high-powered rocket of which it has already produced several dozen, Army Radio reported on Tuesday. According to the report, the rocket is short-range and can carry a relatively heavy explosive load. In the event of a future conflict between Israel and Hamas, the new rocket would have the most effect on the Israeli communities bordering the Gaza Strip. The report described the rocket as "completely different than any weaponry we know from the direction of the Strip - as concerns the weight of the explosive carried in the head of the rocket." While Hezbollah has similar rockets,

PETER BONE has launched an angry tirade at the BBC, accusing the broadcaster of being “totally biased” against Brexit. The veteran Brexiteer said he often found himself “shouting at the television” in disgust at the broadcaster’s gloom-ridden coverage in the lead up to triggering of Article 50. Mr Bone claimed the BBC “doesn’t understand” why Project Fear’s negative forecasts for post-Brexit Britain haven’t come to fruition. Discussing media bias on Brexit, the MP for Wellingborough, told Sky News the BBC had denied favouring an anti-Brexit approach to news because it is “institutionally biased”. “The media is biased – we know




Fresh misery for Corbyn with poll
showing his approval rating among
Britons is lower than Donald Trump’s

Jeremy Corbyn has a lower approval rating among Britons than Donald Trump, according to a poll. Just 17 per cent of the public believe the Labour leader is performing well, the research by GfK found. By contrast 18 per cent think the US president is doing a good job. There was a crumb of comfort in that his disapproval rating was marginally lower than Mr Trump´s, at 58 per cent to 60 per cent. But the result underlines the scale of the task Mr Corbyn faces in order to turn around Labour´s fortunes.

Sixty one per cent of French people believe Islam is incompatible with their society, according to a new poll. That figure had been falling sharply until the Charlie Hebdo attacks in January 2015, and has been steadily growing ever since, an Ipsos survey found. That is compared with six per cent of people who believe Catholicism is incompatible and 17 per cent who believe Judaism is incompatible. A further 79 per cent of French people supported banning headscarves on university campuses, while another 77 per cent want to see the burkini banned. France already has a nationwide law banning anyone from wearing a full-face

What can be done about Iran? In Israel, a dispute is reportedly raging between the IDF and the Mossad about the greatest threat facing Israel. IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Gadi Eisenkot thinks that Hezbollah is the greatest threat facing Israel. Mossad Director Yossi Cohen thinks Iran’s nuclear program is the greatest danger facing the Jewish state. While the media highlight the two men’s disagreement, the underlying truth about their concerns has been ignored. Hezbollah and Iran’s nuclear program are two aspects of the same threat: the regime in Tehran. Hezbollah is a wholly owned subsidiary of the regime.

FEARS over Donald Trump´s presidency has gripped global markets amid signs a huge stock bubble is about to burst and wreak financial chaos. Britain´s top share index the FTSE 100 shed billions of pounds of value on Monday morning, to sit at its lowest level in almost a month after adding to last week´s losses. It follows overnight sell-offs in Asia, while US stock indices the Dow Jones and S&P 500 are also tipped to tumble when they open later today. The panic has been triggered by US lawmakers´ rejection of Mr Trump´s healthcare bill on Friday. Investors are now concerned the President

DONALD Trump allegedly handed over a £300billion bill to Angela Merkel for unpaid defence contributions to Nato. The billionaire is said to have instructed his aides to work out Germany’s debt to the organisation following their meeting earlier this month. With member countries pledging to contribute two per cent of their GDP to defence in 2014, something only a handful do, Mr Trump has been critical of those who he deems are not paying their fair share. The bill is said to take into account how much Germany underspent by since 2002, when Chancellor Merkel’s predecessor, Gerhard Schröder, pledged to

THE EUROPEAN Union “shafted” Ireland and will pay the price with a shock ‘Irexit’, a think tank has warned. Dublin-based Hibernia Forum said the Republic could leave the bloc as revenge for its treatment by Brussels during the financial crisis. Co-founder Keith Redmond said the country had been “quarantined” and forced to take on “toxic banking debt”. Mr Redmond, who is also a councillor on the Fingal County Council, told Express.co.uk other factors, such as a growing loss of sovereignty, could lead to an Irish EU exit. When asked whether euroscepticism was growing on the island, he said: “For sure.

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Monday stepped up his criticism of House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes, calling on House Speaker Paul Ryan to replace him. "Without further ado, Speaker Ryan should replace Chairman Nunes," the Senate minority leader said from the floor. "If Speaker Ryan wants the House to have a credible investigation, he needs to replace Chairman Nunes." Nunes caused an uproar last week when he told the press that he had seen intelligence showing that members of President Trump´s transition team had been caught up in surveillance operations — without first discussing the information with fellow committee members.

With the words "credibility questioned" prominent on the screen, Scott Pelley once again is doing what network evening-news anchors generally don´t do: abandoning careful neutrality in favor of pointed truth-telling. He is talking Thursday night about President Trump. And here are some of the words he is using: "his boasting and tendency to believe conspiracy theories." It´s nothing new. Pelley, of CBS Evening News, has set himself apart — especially in recent weeks — with a spate of such assessments, night after night. Perhaps the most notable one, on Feb. 7, went like this: "It has been a busy day

Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., caused a scene at a Manhattan restaurant when he began yelling at a wealthy and well-connected Donald Trump supporter that the POTUS is “a liar.” Schumer, the top Senate Democrat, lost his cool on Sunday night at Upper East Side restaurant Sette Mezzo, according to witnesses. He was dining with friends when he encountered Joseph A. Califano Jr. — the former U.S. secretary of health, education and welfare under President Jimmy Carter and domestic policy adviser to President Lyndon B. Johnson — and his wife, Hilary, who were having a quiet dinner. Onlookers said Schumer was incensed that Hilary

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Monday he’ll begin punishing sanctuary cities, withholding potentially billions of dollars in federal money — and even clawing back funds that had been doled out in the past. Speaking at the White House, Mr. Sessions said his department is preparing to dole out more than $4 billion in funds this year, but will try prevent any of it from going to sanctuaries. “Countless Americans would be alive today … if these policies of sanctuary cities were ended,” Mr. Sessions said. He said he’s carrying out a policy laid out by the Obama administration last year,

Mental genius Chelsea Clinton made a complete a** of herself once again this past weekend. Someone really needs to keep her away from the computers without supervision. Via Newsbusters— The Republican Party of Palm Beach County put President Lincoln in a #MAGA hat this year for its Lincoln Day Dinner. (Snip) An alarmed Chelsea Clinton, a graduate of Oxford University, asked her followers if the image was photoshopped! What a dunce. The responses to Chelsea’s tweets were EPIC! “No, this is the exact hat Lincoln was wearing when he signed the Emancipation Proclamation. People forget that.” “Nope, Lincoln was wearing that exact hat at the Theater.” “Nope,

New market data has somehow managed to make Whole Foods’ beleaguered lot look even worse. On top of reports last week that rival Albertsons was sniffing around Sprouts Farmers Market, an upstart organic grocer and wellness store whose prices are about 19 percent cheaper on average than Whole Foods, there are now some new numbers suggesting the high-end grocery chain is also still hemorrhaging shoppers. Foot traffic has dipped once again, Barclays analysts note, straight-up describing the magnitude this time as “staggering.” Technically, it’s 3 percent, which can make “staggering” seem a little far-fetched — until you consider it translates

Less than a week after the failed attempt to repeal Obamacare, President Trump will sign an executive order that could spell the end of Obama-era environmental policy. The order will curb the enforcement of a number of climate regulations, in an effort, the Trump administration says, to prioritize American jobs above addressing climate change. According to Mark Lynas, a British author, journalist and environmental activist who focuses on climate change, the order "is intended to make coal competitive again in the US economy, by refossilizing the US power sector and demonstrably increasing carbon emissions."

As they investigate the forces behind the party’s stunning losses in November, Democrats are coming to a troubling conclusion. The party didn’t just lose among rural white voters on Election Day, it may have failed to capture them in its pre-election polling as well. Many pollsters and strategists believe that rural white voters, particularly those without college degrees, eluded the party’s polling altogether — and their absence from poll results may have been both a cause and a symptom of Donald Trump’s upset victory over Hillary Clinton in several states. Determining what exactly happened is one of the most pressing problems facing

On the same day that the House of Representatives canceled its vote on Ryancare, Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks filed a simple one-line bill to repeal Obama’s signature health care law. The Huntsville Republican titled the bill ‘Obamacare Repeal Act.” It is short and to the point, AI.com reported. “Effective as of Dec. 31, 2017, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is repealed, and the provisions of law amended or repealed by such Act are restored or revived as if such Act had not been enacted,” the bill reads. Brooks, a member of the House Freedom Caucus, told constituents last week that he

Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch’s path to 60 votes is rapidly closing — setting the stage for a nuclear showdown in the Senate as soon as next week. Senior Democratic sources are now increasingly confident that Gorsuch can’t clear a filibuster, saying his ceiling is likely mid- to upper-50s on the key procedural vote. That would mark the first successful filibuster of a Supreme Court nominee since Abe Fortas for chief justice in the 1960s. In the latest ominous sign for the federal judge from Colorado, Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) said Monday he’ll oppose Gorsuch on the cloture vote, which is expected
