By all means, Humbly.” Israel’s settlement policy is un-American, undemocratic, unjust and an obstacle to peace. As stated by Martin Luther King, Jr., ”There can be no justice without peace and there can be no peace without justice.” I urge the committee to vote in favor of this resolution. Jeff Klein: Dear DSC Member, As you probably know, a resolution on “Peace And Security For Israelis And Palestinians” has been submitted to the DSC. Rather than rely on the characterization of its opponents as “one-sided,” I urge that you read the actual resolution, accessible on-line here . The resolution deplores violence and incitement against civilians from both sides;, says that Israelis and Palestinians deserve to live in peace and security; and supports a negotiated settlement in conformance with international law. It doesnt pretend to address every aspect of the conflict but affirms that Israeli settlements are obstacles to peace – long-standing US policy under every US President (except Donald Trump!) since Lyndon Johnson.

First Lady Melania Trump just celebrated her 47th birthday and Seth Meyers took a satiric look at the well wishing taking place on her Facebook wall. Everyone on the internet knows that the best part of Facebook comes on your birthday when everyone from your kindergarten best friend to your ex boss to that random person you met a conference in Boca writes their birthday wishes on your Facebook wall. Those birthday wishes are even more effusive and heartfelt when youre the First Lady of the United States of America, as Meyers pointed out on Late Night on Thursday. All the messages were totally comedic fake news from the likes of Donald Trump Jr., Vice President Mike Pence, and Ivanka Trump.

Now I know we think of crimes against humanity as genocide, but recently the International Criminal Court has prioritized crimes against the environment, which would certainly include climate change, and in 2009 a group of businessmen signed a letter to President Obama saying the science is irrefutable that unless we take strong action on climate change the consequences will be catastrophic for the planet. I'm paraphrasing. Jeff Schechtman : Uh-huh (affirmative). Allan Lichtman : Guess who signed that? Donald Trump, Eric Trump, Donald Jr., and Ivanka Trump. What's changed in eight years? Only Trump's political calculations, because the science is stronger and the dangers are worse, and he's not only stopped progress on fighting climate change, he's thrown it into reverse so far with his policies. We're not signatories to the Rome Accords that established the ICC, but anyone in the world could make a complaint because climate change is universal.

His daughter and son-in-law, both White House advisers, are also holding onto significant business assets. And Trump's adult sons run his Trump Organization. Trump officials have offered varying explanations for why the president does not disclosure his returns. White House senior counselor Kellyanne Conway said in a television interview in January that the fact that he won the election without putting out the information shows that “people didn't care” about it. Trump's sons Eric and Donald Trump Jr. have made similar points in various interviews, though recent polling suggests otherwise. ‘A waste of timeThere's evidence the president has been thinking about the issue in recent weeks. He asked his friend and Las Vegas business partner Phil Ruffin, a fellow billionaire, whether he should put out the returns, Ruffin said. “I advised him not to,” Ruffin said.

Another big challenge in protecting TrumpcodenamedMogul” to commemorate his billionaire business backgroundstarts with the way he’s been traveling around the country. While the president has managed to keep hotel costs down by spending all his nights since inauguration at either the White House or his South Florida seaside retreat, it’s the recurring weekend trips to his private Mar-a-Lago club that are giving current and former Secret Service agents some pause. “I used to joke if we dont know where we’re going then the jackal doesnt either,” Bongino said. “Patterns always hurt.” The Secret Servicebattered by years of bad public relations tied to fence jumpers, prostitutes and the lowest morale of any government sub-agency — is also spread painfully thin as it acclimates to the Trump era. A third of the New York field office’s 200-plus staffers are being pulled on any given day from their regular duties, including criminal investigations, to protect the Trump family members based in Manhattan, including Melania Trump and 11-year old Barron Trump in Trump Tower, and adult sons Eric and Donald Trump Jr.

Super-Human Abilities It’s fascinating to consider just how many ancient teachings tell us that humans have the capacity to gain extraordinary powers through various techniques. Some of these techniques, known as siddhis in the yoga tradition (from the Sanskrit, meaningperfection”), include meditation, static dancing, drumming, praying, fasting, psychedelics, and more. In Buddhism, for example, the existence of advanced powers is readily acknowledged; in fact, Buddha expected his disciples to be able to attain these abilities, but also to not become distracted by them. A professor of Buddhist and Tibetan Studies at the University of Michigan, Donald Lopez Jr., describes the many abilities ascribed to Buddha: With this enlightenment, he was believed to possess all manner of supernormal powers, including full knowledge of each of his own past lives and those of other beings, the ability to know others’ thoughts, the ability to create doubles of himself, the ability to rise into the air and simultaneously shoot fire and water from his body.

Ivanka Trump on Tuesday downplayed her brother’s characterization of her influence on President Donald Trump’s decision to order missile strikes in Syria earlier this month. Eric Trump, who alongside his brother, Donald Trump Jr., runs the Trump Organization, told The Daily Telegraph he was confident that his sister used her influence with the president to compel him to respond to the Syrian regime’s chemical weapons attack on civilians. “Ivanka is a mother of three kids and she has influence. I’m sure she said: ‘Listen, this is horrible stuff,’ Eric Trump said during the interview. “That would be a flawed interpretation,” Ivanka Trump told reporters in Berlin on Tuesday, pointing to a New York Times report detailing, in the first daughter’s words, “how the decision process was managed.” “It was informed at the highest levels of military and state,” the unpaid White House adviser and special assistant to the president continued.

WASHINGTON President Donald Trump has long perpetuated the debunked theory that vaccines cause autism. In January, while still president-elect, he went as far as to request that Robert F. Kennedy Jr., a fellow vaccine skeptic, lead a commission to investigate vaccine safety . This disregard for science is among the reasons Sabrina Solouk i, a second-year Ph.D. student in immunology and infectious disease at Cornell University, made a pilgrimage to Washington, D.C., on Saturday for the March for Science , a mass protest to rally scientists against what they see as Trumps backward policies. The administration, by forming this safety commission, isnt really doing a good job of listening to science of science-informed policy, she told The Huffington Post. Solouki also wants to unite the scientific community, to push for it to do a better job of engaging with the public at large, and to send a clear message that scientists are against Trumps proposed cuts to science.

Trump is maintaining ownership of his company while serving as president, though day-to-day operations are handled by his adult sons, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric, and longtime Trump Organization executives. It’s a controversial arrangement – the president’s critics say he should donate entire payments and not just profits to the Treasury – and there are also lawsuits challenging the setup in federal court. It’s hard to calculate the full extent of the foreign business of Trump’s companies because they are private entities, and Trump has not released his tax returns. Nonetheless, POLITICO in February reported that a lobbying firm working for Saudi Arabia paid for a room at Trump’s new Washington D.C. hotel shortly after his inauguration, marking the first publicly known payment on behalf of a foreign government since Trump became president. Trump’s attorneys and the Trump Organization didnt immediately respond to requests for comment on the lawmakersletter.
