QUITO/LONDON - WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was “naturalized” as an Ecuadorean in December, at his request, Ecuador’s foreign minister said on Thursday, adding that she was seeking a “dignified and just” solution to his situation with Britain. Britain said earlier on Thursday it had refused a request by Ecuador for Assange to be given diplomatic status, a spokesman for Britain’s Foreign Office said. Assange has been holed up for more than five years in the Ecuadorean embassy in London where he was granted asylum in 2012 to avoid extradition to Sweden over rape allegations. Assange, who denies the allegations, feared

The UK has been playing rope a dope with Assange now for 5 years. Besides obtaining and releasing all sorts of US classified information, it appears that he did the same with UK classified information. Assange knows that once he leaves that Embassy that the UK is going grab him and either prosecute him, or put him on an aircraft bound for the USA. He has a big time problem.

Trump ´sold Israel down the river´

There is anger among Israel´s supporters in the US after the administration reportedly caved in to European demands, and decided to allow Iran to continue to hold medium range ballistic missiles. According to a report by Adam Kredo in the Washington Free Beacon, the Trump administration is "poised to legitimize Iran´s ballistic missile program, granting the Islamic Republic the ability to produce and test a series of missiles capable of striking Israel." The report says European countries have been pressuring the Trump administration for weeks on the matter, and the senior officials handling the talks are "said to have conceded to a

Hillary Clinton went on a profanity-ridden rant about presidential opponent Donald Trump while speaking somewhat privately to aides during a debate preparation back in 2016. In the book, ´Chasing Hillary: Ten Years, Two Presidential Campaigns, and One Intact Glass Ceiling,´ released on Tuesday, New York Times writer Amy Chozick recounts her time following the former Democratic candidate during the election. Chozick writes in the words of Clinton: ´You want authentic, here it is!´ she´d yelled in one prep session, followed by a f***-laced fusillade about what a "disgusting" human being Trump was and how he didn´t deserve to even be in the

US Winter Olympians who competed in PyeongChang are heading to the White House this week, but some of the most notable names are skipping the prestigious event. The 2018 Winter Olympics were, at times, used by athletes to vocalize their dissatisfaction with the Trump administration. Alpine skier Lindsey Vonn, figure skater Adam Rippon and freestyle skier Gus Kenworthy have all spoke out against the administration. They are among a large swath of about 60 Olympians who will not attend the White House reception this year.

Trump´s revenge: US crude oil

Daily Express [UK], by Darius McQuaid    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 4/24/2018 6:54:11     Post Reply
THE United States is flooding the European markets with record amounts crude oil as US producers seize on Russia and the Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) pact to cut output resulting in soaring oil prices. US crude oil is seen as the cheaper option as the OPEC and Russia pact begins to bite after agreeing jointly to oil output jointly by 1.8million barrels per day (bpd) help rebalance the market and to help elevate the benchmark Brent prices. Now, the relatively high prices brought about by that pact, coupled with surging US output, are making it harder to

President Trump parroted two Wall Street Journal writers in a Sunday tweet as he again waged war against former FBI Director James Comey. ´Kim Strassel of the WSJ just said, after reviewing the dumb Comey Memos, "you got to ask, what was the purpose of the Special Counsel? There’s no there there." Dan Henninger of the WSJ said Memos would show that this would be one of the weakest obstruction cases ever brought!´ Trump wrote. The president is trying anything and everything to discredit Comey, who has been on a media blitz promoting his new book, ´A Higher Loyalty.´ On Saturday Trump insisted

Somewhere in his latest book, British novelist Martin Amis writes about America that it is more like a world than a country. I take it then, that diverse as we are, we act like one big family so tight that we don’t much care what they are doing, say, in Britain. Let them play cricket. We’ll stick to baseball …and please keep your anti-Semitism to yourselves. By way of saying Jeremy Corbyn, Leader of Britain’s Labour Party, or as some would say, leader of Her Majesty’s Opposition. Or…as others have it – Jeremy Corbyn, the face of British anti-Semitism. But what do

Interior Ministry spokesman Najib Danesh said a bomber on foot approached the center where officials had been issuing identity cards as part of the registration process for voters

IT WAS one of the best kept secrets of the Second World War, a covert operation on the railways which allowed Eisenhower and Churchill to travel across the country plotting the defeat of Hitler. Now the fascinating true story behind a diesel locomotive codenamed Train Alive can be told for the first time after the family of the lowly soldier who was put in charge discovered a cache of documents revealing how it was used.

Perhaps the most enduring puzzlement about Donald Trump the president and candidate is his ability, if that’s what it is, to attract a faithful political base founded on fervent evangelical Christians, despite his frequently reinforced reputation for less than righteous acts and statements. During the 2015-16 campaign, each emerging example of Trump misbehavior, from off-color references to women and allegations of affairs, convinced Eastern elites and media to believe the billionaire’s upstart political rebellion was doomed any day. [Snip] Among allegedly conservative Republicans, Trump approval has climbed into the mid-80 percent range. All this despite continued stormy allegations by a

WASHINGTON – Former Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-R.I.) urged Congress not to legalize marijuana, breaking with other members of his party such as Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.). Schumer announced today for the 4/20 cannabis holiday his plan to decriminalize marijuana at the federal level, writing that he had evolved on the issue along with the electorate. Kennedy argued lawmakers should oppose legalization of marijuana, in part because it would worsen the crisis of addiction in America. “The biggest issue here is denial in our lives, those of us who come from homes with alcoholism and addiction, who live with it in our

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is set to announce a federal jobs proposal that would guarantee a job with at least a $15-per-hour wage and health benefits to every adult American “who wants or needs one,” The Washington Post reports. The senator is still in the early stages of crafting the plan, according to the Post, which would provide a job or required training for any American. Sanders´s office has yet to release the details of the plan´s funding, but previous large-scale projects proposed by the Vermont progressive have involved ending tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans and large corporations.

Representatives of the Grandview Golf Club in York told the group at the second hole they were playing too slowly Saturday, said Sandra Harrison. After the ninth hole, an hour-and-a-half later, the group of white men told them they took too long a break and needed to leave.

On the domestic and foreign fronts, the Trump administration has prompted economic growth and restored U.S. deterrence. Polls show increased consumer confidence, and in some, Trump himself has gained ground. Yet good news is bad news to the Resistance and its strange continued efforts to stop an elected president in a way it failed to do in the 2016 election. Indeed, the aim of the so-called Resistance to Donald J. Trump is ending Trump’s presidency by any means necessary before the 2020 election. Or, barring that, it seeks to so delegitimize him that he becomes presidentially impotent. It has been only

Planned Parenthood is once again proving its hunger for powerful allies in government positions. GOP control of the Senate is narrow, and with the upcoming Senate races, the power balance could tip in favor of Democrat, pro-abortion advocates. Planned Parenthood knows this, of course, and will be pouring a reported $30 million into abortion advocacy through its political arm. This money will be spent on Senate and gubernatorial races in a number of states, including Arizona, Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, and will be used to fund TV and digital ads, direct-mail campaigns, and even advocacy in the public square.
