US' Kushner backs Netanyahu-Gantz unity government

Jared Kushner, adviser to and son-in-law of US President Donald Trump, has told Israeli television that he hopes to see Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Blue and White chair Benny Gantz form a new coalition government.

Omar and Johnson voted "present" on today's House vote to recognize the Armenian Genocide.

The complete list wasn't available when I posted last night. I now edited the OP. They all should have to explain themselves. The reason I find her vote especially troubling is her comment on wanting a debate on academic consensus on this issue.

Trump had nothing to do with The raid and killing of Baghdadi.

Quote: 'Trump’s abrupt decision to withdraw American forces from northern Syria disrupted the meticulous planning and forced Pentagon officials to press ahead with a risky night raid... al-Baghdadi’s death occurred largely in spite of Trump’s actions'

This is why The Hill has gone to hell lately.

This whole twitter thread is very interesting.

Trump/Gabbard2020

That is the only scenario I would be worried about. She doesn't have enough democrats who would vote for her. Maybe the angry crack pot independents but they won't vote for dems anyway.

Fighting in Kurdish-held Syrian town despite cease-fire

ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — Associated Press journalists are seeing continued fighting in a Syrian town at the center of the fight between Turkey and Kurdish forces, despite a U.S.-brokered cease-fire.

Shelling and smoke could be seen around Ras al-Ayn on Friday morning, a day after Turkey and the U.S. agreed to a five-day cease-fire in Turkey’s offensive.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a war monitor, reports intermittent clashes in Ras al-Ayn, but relative calm elsewhere since the cease-fire.

The agreement requires the Kurdish fighters to vacate a swath of territory in Syria along the Turkish border, largely solidifying Turkey’s position.

BREAKING: SDNY charges Turkish state-run bank

BREAKING: SDNY charges Turkish state-run bank Halkbank in sanctions violations in connection with the record-breaking money-laundering scheme to Iran executed by gold trader Reza Zarrab.

Zarrab was the client whose release Giuliani pushed for between Trump and Erdogan.

Is Barr in charge of SDNY?

I'm wondering if anyone knows if Barr had to sign off on the warrants of Rudy's friends. If he is in charge, I have no hope of anything coming out of this.

My wife thinks Joe Biden is a man of integrity

A man who knows how to show people how much he cares about folks. A man who has the gift of healing, who can heal this nation which is what we are going to need. My wife won't let republican smears work in trying to pick our nominee.
