    In a disclosure that the New York Times said showed "a previously undisclosed level of hostility among top Iranian officials toward President Trump", the paper reported Thursday that Iran had rejected eight requests from the White House for a meeting between Trump and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani during the United Nations General Assembly last year. White House and State Department officials haven't responded to Iran's claim, made by Rouhani’s chief of staff, Mahmoud Vaezi, at a cabinet meeting. Reports of the remark first surfaced in Iranian state media. Iran’s Foreign Ministry has previously claimed that it denied a request for a meeting between the two leaders. "Trump asked the Iranian delegation eight times to have a meeting with the president," Mr. Vaezi said. Since then, Trump has withdrawn the US from the 2015 Iran deal and restored sanctions against the country in defiance of the wishes of Russia, China and our European partners. Iran was also included in Trump's travel ban, which was recently upheld by the Supreme Court. Despite this, Trump has also expressed a willingness to engage Iran and negotiate, though the two sides haven't had much, if any, contact. "The biggest obstacle to a U.S.-Iran dialogue is not Trump but Khamenei," said Karim Sadjadpour, a senior fellow in the Middle East program at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. "Trump flew halfway around the world to meet with Kim Jong-un. Khamenei hasn’t left Iran since 1989." Obama and Mr. Rouhani spoke on the phone at the end of the 2013 General Assembly as the Iranian leader headed home. That was the first time an Iranian leader had spoken with a US President since the revolution. Iranian officials also have threatened to renounce the nuclear accord if its European partners cannot find ways to bypass the American sanctions, which threaten penalties on all countries that engage economically with Iran. Hostilities have endured, and though Iran has expressed openness to engaging with the European Union and the accord's other partners, many fear it will soon collapse. But regardless of what happens, it doesn't appear the Iranians will be "engaging" with the Trump administration any time soon. https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-07-19/white-house-asked-8-times-trump-rouhani-meeting-iran-says

    Immigrants coming to the United States would generally fail this new rewritten test if they had a medical condition and no source of subsidized health insurance. The test also places a premium on an applicant’s income and assets. Applicants must make at least 250 percent of the federal poverty guidelines, which, in 2018, means $30,350 for a one-person household and $62,750 for a four-person household. The rewritten Trump test would treat perfectly employed individuals as “public charges” by expanding the test to include additional benefits working-class Americans have access to if they meet a certain threshold. That includes the earned income tax credit (EITC), Medicare, and Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) The Trump test also focuses on whether the applicant would be a “public charge” by determining whether they have a medical condition with no form of health insurance, are currently receiving any government assistance, have recently received government assistance, or are currently not working or enrolled in school full-time. It gives the administration the authority to take into consideration any other factors “in the discretion of DHS,” essentially giving the government carte blanche to decide whether to pass or fail an applicant. If an applicant “fails” a test, the administration could allow immigration officials to admit them to the country on the condition of a “public charge bond,” set at a minimum of $10,000.

    The Pew Research Center released the results yesterday of a new national survey. A week after Donald Trump nominated Brett Kavanaugh to fill Justice Anthony Kennedy’s seat on the U.S. Supreme Court, the public is split in its early views of the nomination. Overall, 41% think the Senate should confirm Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, while about as many (36%) say they should not; 23% do not offer a view on the question. Public is split on Kavanaugh’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court In February 2017, views of Neil Gorsuch’s nomination were similar, though the balance of opinion was more positive. At that time, 44% said the Senate should confirm Gorsuch to fill the seated vacated by the late Justice Antonin Scalia; fewer (32%) said it should not. And most previous nominees to the court during the presidencies of Barack Obama and George W. Bush were initially viewed more positively than negatively. Note, for example, that in 2005, 27% of Americans said Harriet Miers shouldn’t be confirmed to the Supreme Court, less than the 36% who now say the same about Kavanaugh, and Miers’ nomination was kind of ridiculous. The results were nearly identical to those released yesterday by Gallup, which found a narrow plurality of 41% of Americans want to see Kavanaugh confirmed, while 37% do not. The report added, “This four-percentage-point margin is slimmer than any Gallup has measured in its initial read on 10 prior nominees since 1987.” More at: http://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-show/trumps-new-supreme-court-nominee-fails-garner-broad-public-support

    Vladimir Putin told Russian diplomats that he made a proposal to Donald Trump at their summit this week to hold a referendum to help resolve the conflict in eastern Ukraine, but agreed not to disclose the plan publicly so the U.S. president could consider it, according to two people who attended Putin’s closed-door speech on Thursday. White House officials didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. If Putin’s account of Trump’s reaction is accurate, it would suggest a more flexible approach than the U.S. has shown to date on the issue. Putin gave his latest account of the meeting during at a conference with top Russian ambassadors and officials at the Foreign Ministry in Moscow, the people said, asking not to be identified discussing the president’s comments to the part of the session that was closed to the public. One of the people said that Trump had requested Putin not discuss the referendum idea at the press conference after the summit in order to give the U.S. leader time to mull it. Putin’s proposal would call for a vote conducted under international auspices by the residents of the separatist territories on their status, the people said. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov declined to comment on the details of what Putin said about Ukraine at the summit, saying only, “Some new ideas were discussed. They will be worked on.” On Twitter Thursday, Trump called the summit “a great success” and cited Ukraine among the areas discussed, without providing details. Putin’s proposal will alarm Ukrainian officials after Trump last week appeared to leave open the possibility of recognizing Russia’s 2014 annexation of Crimea, which triggered the crisis that led to fighting in eastern Ukraine’s Donetsk and Luhansk regions. Ukraine has offered the areas autonomy under its rule and backs the deployment of international peacekeepers in the region.

    Eating plans like the keto diet have educated us all on the whole "good fat" thing, but people still tend to absent-mindedly reach forskim milk, fat-free yogurt, "light" cream cheese, low-fat cheese, and so on. But some genius scientists just published a new study that suggests saturated dairy fat isn't as harmful as we have come to believe.The new research, conducted by the University of Texas' School of Public Health, was published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. The study shows that consuming saturated dairy fat has no significant link to cardiovascular health. The scientists followed 2,907 65-and-older American adults with no cardiovascular issues for a period of 22 years, tracking their saturated fat consumption over time. The study took blood samples from participants, which were used to measure their fatty acid levels. Those served as an indicator of risk for cardiovascular disease and strokes. By identifying dairy-specific fatty acids, researchers were able to study the relationship between dairy fat consumption and health outcomes. "Overall, our findings do not support harmful associations of dairy fat consumption for incident CVD events later in life," says Marcia Otto, lead author and assistant professor of epidemiology, human genetics, and environmental sciences at UT's School of Public Health.

    It was not on his itinerary. I would guess that over 90% of Christian tourists (at least faithful ones) make sure to visit it when they visit Jerusalem, considering it is the traditional site of Christ’s resurrection. Was shocked to learn Rand did not go.

    Senator Paul, on your visit to Jerusalem, why did you visit the Wailing Wall, but not visit the Church of the Resurrection which houses the Holy Sepulchre (the Tomb of Christ) and is considered by Christians from the earliest centuries to be the holiest and most revered place on earth? Incidentally, Trump did visit it. The first sitting President to do so.

    The European Commission has launched an infringement procedure against Hungary over its recently passed “Stop Soros” package of laws. EC spokesperson Mina Andreeva told a press briefing on Thursday that the commission has sent the Hungarian government a letter of formal notice concerning the “Stop Soros” laws and related constitutional amendments. The EC gave the Hungarian authorities two months to respond to its concerns. The Venice Commission of the Council of Europe earlier criticised some passages in the new legislation, arguing that they would seriously hinder the operation of legitimate civil groups. Also on Thursday, the EC said it will take Hungary to the Court of Justice of the European Union over the country’s asylum law, initiating the third phase of the ongoing infringement procedure against Hungary over the law. The infringement procedure was launched in December 2015. Ruling Fidesz said in reaction that the latest infringement procedure confirmed that Brussels supported migration and “is protecting the Soros organizations.” “The Stop Soros law and the constitutional amendment prohibiting the settlement of migrants in Hungary stand in their way, this is why they launched the procedure,” the party said in a statement. “As long as the Fidesz-Christian Democrat alliance is in government, Stop Soros and the constitutional amendment will remain intact, because the Hungarian people have made it clear that they do not want Hungary to be made into a country of immigrants,” they added. The strongest opposition party Jobbik – who voted in favor of the “Stop Soros” package and the constitutional amendment too – called the procedure “unacceptable” and said that Hungary had not enacted any measures incompatible with its duty to protect the European Union’s external borders. Jobbik added, at the same time, that the “Stop Soros” law alone would not be enough to curb migration. Migration can only be combatted by enacting strict measures at a national level, Jobbik said, adding that this was why they have proposed the establishment of an independent border guard.

    There's just one problem with the Democrats' unending focus on Russia and the media's constant collusion chatter: few Americans care, because - drumroll - they have real lives in the real economy to worry about. As the latest survey from Gallup shows: when asked what the most important problem facing the nation is, Russia did not even warrant a 1% - and worse still, it is declining in importance from there. Source: Gallup As David Sirota noted, "Gallup recently did a poll of what Americans say is the most important problem facing the country. One finding: the percentage of Americans saying “Situation with Russia” is the most important problem is literally too small to represent with a number. " So with all that energy expended on pinning the Russia collusion tail on Trump's campaign donkey, let alone former FBI Director Comey's insistence that 'anyone voting Republican is anti-American', we are reminded of the blinkered view of the world so many suffer from and what Steve Bannon said yesterday at CNBC's "Delivering Alpha" conference: The Democrats abandoned the American worker. The meddling was on the margin, and the Democrats need to accept this. The collusion - they haven't found one shred of evidence. The Democrats have yet to embrace why they lost... have wanted a do-over since 2:30 am on Nov. 9 - and they've lied and they've bitched and in November they'll get their do-over...but on November 6, the deplorables will be plenty jacked up. But in November, voters will render their decision, and whatever they decide it'll be on Trump's platform of economic nationalism, which has boosted economic growth and created jobs. "It's an up or down vote, the economy, the tax cuts the whole package. I think the Fed's going to say in the second quarter it's at 4%...because of economic nationalism."

    The environmental group "The Sierra Club", which was the most prominent name to defend Elon Musk on Twitter after it was reported that he was a top donor to a GOP PAC,tweeted in his defense because they were personally asked by Elon Musk himself, Bloomberg reports. To do that, Musk reportedly told the Sierra Club to make public $6 million in donations that he had previously donated anonymously, as an attempt to deflect public anger from his support for the GOP. Musk's request for a "favor" also apparently set off civil unrest between the head of The Sierra Club and its staff, some of whom did not want the Sierra Club to defend Musk publicly because of his GOP donation and stance on unions. Perhaps the only saving grace on Saturday night - when countless liberals unleashed on Musk, vowing they would never buy a Tesla or would return the car they had purchased - was when the Sierra Club jumped to his defense on Twitter, urging to people that "There have got to be better topics of debate than whether is committed to climate action." The tweet continued, "He has dedicated his career to the mission of replacing fossil fuels with clean energy & has strongly backed the Sierra Club's advocacy work. We are proud to have his support." Musk quickly retweeted their defense with his own comments and pinned the Tweet to be at the top of his Twitter timeline. At the time of the tweet, some joked cynically that Musk was getting a perfunctory defense from The Sierra Club because he was likely a large donor. Few however, guessed that Elon Musk personally called the Sierra Club's executive director on Saturday, and asked him to tweet out something in his defense. And, in what was the biggest surprise of Musk's shallow response, the billionaire asked that the Sierra Club make the amount of his donations – which were previously anonymous, public. From Bloomberg: Elon Musk personally dialed up the head of the environmental group the Sierra Club and asked for help with deflecting criticism over donations that the chairman of Tesla Inc. made to Republicans, according to an email that the head of the nonprofit sent to his staff. Musk on Saturday called Michael Brune, the Sierra Club’s executive director, and asked that he make public more than $6 million in contributions to the group that had been anonymous, Brune wrote in the email. Musk also enlisted Brune to vouch for him on Twitter to quell a firestorm over the billionaire’s $38,900 contribution to a committee that benefits congressional Republicans including House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy.
