    Reaction to the plan was generally favorable, with some pro-American border security advocates taking a more negative approach. Mark Krikorian, Executive Director of the Center for Immigration Studies, expressed a nuanced approach towards the deal, stating he’d wait to read detailed language on the proposal before declaring support. I hate to disappoint, but (assuming the details are what the president laid out) this is not a terrible deal. No expansion of amnesty for illegals who don't already have it in exch. for more imm. judges, more agents, more tech, more wall. But I'll wait to see the actual language. — Mark Krikorian (@MarkSKrikorian) January 19, 2019 More at: https://bigleaguepolitics.com/inside-president-trumps-wall-deal-to-end-the-shutdown/

    After notching its longest streak of declining prices since at least 2016, what was formerly the world's hottest housing market has officially entered correction territory, as a single interest rate hike by monetary authorities (which prompted HSBC, one of the most active banks in the region, to raise its prime lending rate) has gone a long way toward offering some badly needed relief for prospective homebuyers in the city's middle class. According to Bloomberg, secondary home prices in Hong Kong have shed 9.8% from their August peak to hit their lowest level since February 2018. Though one broker quoted by Bloomberg carefully insisted that, while "correction" was an appropriate word to describe what is happening in the market, calling it a "collapse" would be a bridge too far. "You can say it’s a correction with a 10 percent drop in prices, though it’s not a collapse," said Patrick Wong, a real estate analyst with Bloomberg Intelligence. Particularly because a looming vacancy tax trade-war related volatility suggest that the market still has another 5% to 10% to go until it bottoms out (then again, considering that Hong Kong is the world's most expensive housing market, a chasm between bids and asks could push it even lower, particularly as anxious government officials actively try to pull the rug out from under robust prices.

    The ongoing “Yellow Vest” protests in Paris have increasing royalist support. Several groups from different fractions of the French monarchist movement have demonstrated against the current government. During the early demonstrations, a royalist flag was spotted, and many called out for the restoration of the French monarchy. French media and the International Monarchist Conference reported that a fraction of 200 royalists attended the protests early in December, and the number has increased over the last weeks. In addition, several Catholic groups have attended the demonstrations. Through the last weeks of demonstrations, more and more royalist symbols have been spotted in the demonstrations, mostly the flag with the Fleur-de-lis. The Fleur-de-lis was the symbol of the French monarchy during the reign until the Bonaparte dynasty. In addition, the Count of Paris, Henry of Orleans has, on Twitter, published several statements regarding the protests. Early in December, the Count of Paris called everyone to calm and reason themselves. A week later, the Count visited the “Arc de Triomphe” to rekindle the flame of the Unknown Soldier following the request of French General Bruno Dary. Henri, Count of Paris, Duke of France is head of the House of Orléans, and one of the current pretenders to the defunct French crown as Henry VII. A descendant in the male-line of France’s “Citizen-King” Louis-Philippe d’Orléans (ruled 1830–1848), he is also recognised as the legitimate claimant to the throne by those French royalists, called Unionists. Also, the Bonapartist has had an active role in the ongoing drama in France. On 3 December, French Bonapartist held a ceremony in front of the “Arc de Triomphe” which suffered major damage during the riots. The ceremony was held to commemorate the 213th anniversary of the Victory of Austerlitz. French and international media have pointed out that there are parallels between the unpopular French President Emmanuel Macron and King Louis XVI who was killed by a revolution that ended the monarchy for a short time in France. Many believe now, and hope, that a new revolution will now be able to bring down the republic and bring back the monarchy. If France would return the monarchy, there would still be the difficult task of choosing their new regent. Should France be an Empire or Kingdom? Would they have Emperor or King? This is because there is a total of four families that claim the French throne today:

    Tell that to every country that was disarmed by a dictator before the real tyranny began. There is a reason they want to disarm us so badly.

    There is plenty of time left for him to declare an emergency and build the wall but he is making the Demoncrats look insane and unreasonable right now, he needs to drive moderates away from the Demoncrats in addition to pleasing his base. There will be no deal but now everyone knows whose fault that is.

    I agree except that Coulter and everyone else should make it clear that this deal is unacceptable in case the Demoncrats were to try and call Trump's bluff, he needs the excuse to back out of the offer and the Republicans need to be motivated to make sure it never reaches his desk.

    Syria now has a good opportunity to reach a political solution to its devastating eight-year war as ceasefires have brought calm to many areas of the country, Syria's chief opposition negotiator said on Saturday."I think now that we have an opportunity, because nearly in Syria we have a ceasefire now, in the northeast of Syria and the north of Syria, and the efforts of fighting terrorism has achieved good results," Nasr Hariri told Reuters in an interview in the Saudi Arabian capital Riyadh, where he is based. Hariri, the opposition's chief negotiator in U.N. peace talks, met with the newly appointed United Nations Special Envoy to Syria Geir Pedersen on Friday. "Now it is time to invest all of these developments: the ceasefire, fighting terrorism, the belief of the majority of the Syrian people that the only solution to the Syrian crisis is the political solution," Hariri added.

    Intel has insisted its leadership team is more united than ever in the wake of chief executive Brian Krzanich's resignation last year, even as it continues its hunt for a replacement. Gregory Bryant, senior vice president and general manager of Intel's Client Computing Group, said: “Obviously you don't lose a CEO and you don't notice anything has changed, that would be silly. “But I would say the leadership team at Intel, we've really pulled together as a whole group to execute the strategy. We fundamentally believe the strategy we have is working, and the board is going through its process . They need to take the time to do a great job, it's an important job and we've said take the time you need. “I feel like sometimes when the leader steps away and you're going through change, actually the team pulls closer together because you're supporting each other through the transition.” Rumours have been circling over the past week that Intel could be readying to name Apple's Johny Srouji as its new boss, ahead of its earnings call later this month. However, no decisions are thought to have yet been made, almost seven months after Mr Krzanich left the company following a “consensual relationship” with an employee. At the time, Intel had said it had launched an investigation into a violation of its non-fraternisation policy, which it said applied to all managers, after having been informed of the past relationship. Reports had suggested that relationship had started before Mr Krzanich became CEO and had ended a number of years ago. However, Mr Krzanich has not been the only key executive to step down from the company. Earlier this month strategy chief Aicha Evans announced her resignation to join driverless car start-up Zoox. Since 2017, it has also lost its chief financial officer, chief operating officer and senior vice president of its manufacturing unit.

    Washington, D.C., restaurant Cuba Libre has been hit with a $7,000 fine after questioning a transgender activist who used its women's restroom and a manager tried to insist the patron show identification proving to be female. On June 22, Charlotte Clymer went to the restaurant to attend a bachelorette party for a friend. Clymer identifies as a woman and made the transition from being a man in November 2017. According to Clymer's account of the June incident to MetroWeekly, when she went to use the women's restroom at Cuba Libre, an employee stopped her and asked for her to show identification. Clymer refused and used the women's facility. Upon exiting, she was approached by the same employee and a manager who insisted that, according to D.C. law, a person must be designated as a "female" on their ID in order to use a women's restroom in the city. Clymer — who works in communications for the LGBT advocacy group Human Rights Campaign — argued that she was, indeed, protected under D.C. law and pulled the legislation up on her phone. The next day, Clymer claimed via social media that she had been "forcibly removed from the restaurant." Clymer used her Twitter platform to stress the alleged hostility of the Cuba Libre manager and explained that she felt compelled to expose the "violent nature" of the incident in hopes that it would prevent discrimination against other transgender individuals who might not have her level of privilege. I cannot stress enough the intentionality of this incident. The manager was hostile, condescending, and hateful. And my biggest fear is that this will happen again to someone without my privilege. Someone who's not white, doesn't have a wide network, doesn't know the law, etc. — Charlotte Clymer🏳️🌈 (@cmclymer) June 24, 2018 So, this weekend, I have tried my best to articulate this story and communicate the violent nature of what took place on Friday night while also trying to be present for my friends and what was meant to be a celebratory weekend with girlfriends. — Charlotte Clymer🏳️🌈 (@cmclymer) June 24, 2018 Clymer hired a law firm to represent her in filing a civil rights complaint against the restaurant, prompting an investigation from D.C.'s office of the attorney general.

    US President Donald Trump on Saturday lashed out at Mexico for staying idle while a third caravan of Central American migrants is approaching the southern US border.“Mexico is doing NOTHING to stop the Caravan which is now fully formed and heading to the United States,” Trump tweeted. Mexico is doing NOTHING to stop the Caravan which is now fully formed and heading to the United States. We stopped the last two – many are still in Mexico but can’t get through our Wall, but it takes a lot of Border Agents if there is no Wall. Not easy! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 19, 2019 The caravan reportedly began arriving at the Mexican border with Guatemala on Friday. Fox News said around a 1,000 marched through the border gates after they were left open. Trump has repeatedly slammed Mexico for ignoring big crowds that have been trekking north to start a new life in the United States, warning there were criminals mixed in. “We stopped the last two — many are still in Mexico but can’t get through our Wall, but it takes a lot of Border Agents if there is no Wall. Not easy!” the president stressed. More at: https://www.infowars.com/trump-mexico-doing-nothing-to-stop-new-migrant-caravan/
