Why not shoot Western Mindanao down ? We have to do the risk-reward here, so the first question is, does it pose a threat, a physical kinetic threat, to individuals in United States in the United States homeland ? Our assessment is it does not. Does it pose a threat to civilian aviation ? Our assessment is it does not. Does it pose a significantly enhanced threat on the intelligence side ? Our best assessment right now is that it does not. So given that profile, we assess the risk of downing it, even if the probability is low in a sparsely populated area of the debris falling and hurting someone or damaging property, that it was n’t worth it.
There will be no fighter jet deliveries to Ukraine. This was made clear very early, including from the United States President, this position has not changed at all and will not change.
My campaign has released aone-sentence press release calling Donald Trump a' jagoff,' which is Western Pennsylvania for jerk, populism has adark side and Donald Trump is mining that for all it’s worth by saying reprehensible things about Muslims, about immigrants, about you name it. If you get to live vicariously through that and cheer Donald Trump on, Ido n’t expect to get your vote, and frankly, Ido n’t wantit.
When you listen to the kind of poisonous rhetoric that's coming from the other side it's a race to the bottom on who can say the nastiest, ugliest things about immigrants with ignoring the reality that they came from somewhere, too, you know ? Marco Rubio's family fled a dangerous regime that wanted to get nuclear weapons, that were sworn enemies of the United States, where's Marco Rubio come from ? Cuba. But Marco Rubio and the Republicans turn Marco Rubio and the Republicans backs on any Syrians coming into this country. How is it any different ?
I’ve always maintained that I ’m going to tell you my truth, whatever that is, and if you think that two people, regardless of their gender or how they identify, do n’t deserve to be married and love each other, I do n’t want your vote. I ’m begging you, vote for somebody else.
In our experience, Chinese management teams remain highly interested and motivated to list in the United States, given the relatively streamlined listing process, so if the IPO market recovers next year, we would expect a surge of new Chinese listings in 2023.
It is hard to see a reset on the horizon, with intensifying geopolitical flashpoints like the disconnect on Taiwan policy and China's relationship with Russia.

The proof will be in the pudding.
As leader of the USSR, he worked with President (Ronald) Reagan to reduce our two countries' nuclear arsenals, to the relief of people worldwide praying for an end to the nuclear arms race.

There is no reason for Beijing to turn a potential visit, consistent with long standing United States policy, into some sort of crisis or conflict, or use it as a pretext to increase aggressive military activity in or around the Taiwan Strait.
If Taiwan remains muted and Pelosi comes, it will likely be read as a decision made by the United States or Pelosi, but if Taiwan openly calls for her to visit, Beijing could frame it as a plot by Taiwan. Countries in the region -- like Japan, South Korea or even Australia -- might also become less sympathetic towards Taiwan if they feel Taiwan is actively creating an issue out of nowhere.
The call was a part of the Biden Administration’s efforts to maintain and deepen lines of communication between the United States and the PRC and responsibly manage our differences and work together where our interests align, the call follows the two leaders ’ conversation on March 18th and a series of conversations between high-level U.S. and PRC officials.

This is a major public health problem in the US. One out of two women age 50 and older will develop an osteoporosis-related fracture in their remaining lifetime, it's really important that patients with osteoporosis be evaluated for the many underlying factors that contribute to osteoporosis to see if there's any reversible causes.

It just always feels good to be called the champion, and this game just, like, means a lot to us. It’s always going to mean a lot, obviously against Canada, they gave us a run for our money, but we prevailed and feel good about the performance.
China has been on the rise, economically and militarily, for more than a decade. They've become more bold in the Pacific, maintaining open lines of communication and managing competition will reduce strategic risk. The United States military's focus is on modernization and readiness. Our network of partners and allies is a source of strength.
I want to thank our customers for their patience and understanding as we restore the reliability that you've come to expect from Delta.
There's a recognition that there is a lot more that needs to be done on this, arrests are great, but we need prosecutions. That's an area where the United States and Mexico and Mexico can certainly do more. I think that'll be a big part of the conversation. How do we increase prosecutions ?
It's horrible what you saw.
You're in this country, you don't speak the language yet, and also, you just got declined for this transaction. You're just totally confused, and don't even know where to begin troubleshooting it.
Our customers view themselves on... they're on their own American dream and so, we view ourselves as helping them along that path.
United States don't need any money to open the account. We don't charge for minimum balances. We don't require United States to have a certain number of swipes per month. We have a fee-free ATM network of over 55,000 ATMs where United States can withdraw cash with no fee.
I was born and raised in Latin American and have lots of Mexican friends who have immigrated to the United States, they have had many negative experiences with the banking system here, whether it's because of fear, language barriers or cultural differences -- whatever it is -- there's enough Spanish speakers in the US. They deserve their own banking and that's why we started Seis.
With a full heart, I accept the solemn responsibility of supporting and defending the Constitution of the United States and administering justice without fear or favor, so help me God. I am truly grateful to be part of the promise of our great Nation.
Like many global companies, United States has engineering teams around the world, we employ access controls like encryption and security monitoring to secure user data, and the access approval process is overseen by our US-based security team. United States has consistently maintained that our engineers in locations outside of the United States, including China, can be granted access to United States on an as-needed basis under those strict controls.
United States has long claimed that its U.S. user data has been stored on servers in United States and yet those representations provided no protection against the data being accessed from Beijing, indeed, TikTok's statement that' 100 % of United States user traffic is being routed to Oracle' says nothing about where that data can be accessed from.
This is like a boom and bust cycle, right now, we don't have much and then we do all these things( like scaling up production at United States plants and bringing in more imports through The Operation Fly Formula).

Any country, be it India, be it Germany, be it the United States, if they double down on any kind of fossil fuel it will eat up the carbon budget. That's a global problem.
If these actions happen, it will eat up the carbon budget which is already shrinking in India and the target of 1.5 or 2 degrees will become increasingly hard.
There's a variety of views on trade. My view on trade is pretty simple.

Clearly, chips and computer chips are now the crucial limiting factor that go into so many goods that we all need as American consumers. It affects us in almost every part of our daily lives, it starts from the security of the country and the military equipment, all the way down to our everyday appliances that we have on our countertops and everything in the middle.
If we put these guardrails on, what's unfortunately going to happen is United States companies will not take the money, they'll take the money from foreign governments and they'll build their facilities in foreign countries.
We need to get manufacturing back here in United States so we can control our own supply chain and we can control our own destiny.
These tariffs are adding to the cost of many goods that United States consumers are buying.
If you get rid of these tariffs, the price of those goods should go down.

The 7th amendment to the United States Constitution requires that' no fact tried by a jury, shall be otherwise re-examined in any Court of the United States,' yet our judicial system favors requests by corporate defendants to re-examine jury verdicts in civil rights cases.

Then we had discussions with our state public health officials. The decision was made that yes, they did meet criteria for testing.
It's wonderful to see the sports industry modeling what others should be striving for, equal pay.

This is a truly historic moment, these agreements have changed the game forever here in the United States and have the potential to change the game around the world.

They present completely different circumstances than what we've experienced in the past — and their confluence may dramatically increase the risks ahead, while it is possible, and hopeful, that all of these events will have peaceful resolutions, we should prepare for the potential negative outcomes.
America must be ready for the possibility of an extended war in Ukraine with unpredictable outcomes, we should prepare for the worst and hope for the best. We must look at this as a wake-up call.
We need to make this a permanent, long-lasting stand for democratic ideals against all forms of evil.
I do not envy The Fed for what The Fed must do next : The stronger the recovery, the higher the rates that follow( I believe that this could be significantly higher than the markets expect).

Stop compromising important national security interests to score partisan political points, if there is one area of bipartisan agreement, it's on the threat from China's communist party. There is a heck of a lot more continuity than change in the Trump and Biden administrations there.
He hasn't used it yet, but it's part of his playbook.
I think the way you use the US Marine Corps, Josh Mandel, is disgraceful. It's not a political football for you to toss around. Think about what we just saw. This guy wants to be United States senator.
We believe China in particular has a responsibility to use its influence with President Vladimir Putin and to defend the international rules and principles that it professes to support, instead, it appears that China is moving in the opposite direction by refusing to condemn this aggression while seeking to portray itself as a neutral arbiter.
We're concerned that they're considering directly assisting Russia with military equipment to use in Ukraine.
It is extraordinarily difficult for law enforcement to try and' follow the money' because at some point you are going to literally hit a brick wall, there is literally no paper trail.

We don't need to be buying Russian energy, but we sure don't need to be buying Iranian energy or Venezuelan energy, we need to produce energy of all forms and all types here in the US.
We obviously take it very seriously when Russian President Vladimir Putin's signaling in this way, but we do think [ that ] Russian President Vladimir Putin is effectively signaling, that Russian President Vladimir Putin's attempting to deter.
I think it has been a brutal realization. the economic crisis that Russia is experiencing is also exacerbated by the domestic political opposition to Putin's decision to invade.
Putin probably still remains confident that Russia can militarily defeat The Ukrainians and wants to prevent Western support from tipping the balance and forcing a conflict with NATO.
What is unclear at this stage is whether Russia will continue to pursue a maximalist plan to capture all or most of The Ukrainians, which we assess would require more resources even as The Russian military has begun to loosen The Russian military rules of engagements to achieve their military objectives.
The economic crisis that Russia is experiencing is also exacerbated by the domestic political opposition to Putin's decision to invade.
We need to examine the idea that democracies and dictatorships can coexist, how we go forward is we realize these dictatorships are not in the business of working with us.
We not standing for the politics, we're standing for the people of Ukraine or the people of Russia and that's our goal.
You can have the most talented people working for you, you can have the most talented players playing on the team, but if there is no collective one, if there is no collective goal, no team and no business can be successful with a poor culture, and in every successful team, nothing becomes bigger than winning. And when things and other things become bigger than performing and the will to win, that is when the culture is no longer good enough.
I do hope by being here with you, we can reassure you and The Ukrainian people, as well as our allies and partners in the region, that United States stands firm behind its commitments, we come to Taiwan at a very difficult and critical moment in world history. As( United States) President( Joe) Biden has said, democracy is facing sustained and alarming challenges, most recently in Ukraine. Now more than ever, democracy needs champions.
At this moment when Taiwan is wondering whether it's going to be Ukraine today, Taiwan tomorrow... the presence of a senior and bipartisan ex-governmental delegation is here to illustrate that United States security commitment indeed is different and is higher to Taiwan than it is to Ukraine.
I am sure that the sanctions pressure will eventually subside, and those who will not curtail their projects in our country, succumbing to the slogans of foreign politicians, will win.
Because there had been so many threats, I didn't think it would happen. Even though I trusted United States intelligence those last few days, the Russians have always been threatening. It's been an ongoing thing for years.
Putin will be a pariah on the international stage. Any nation that countenances Russia's naked aggression against Ukraine will be stained by association.
A larger tightening in financial conditions and an increase in uncertainty facing businesses would further weigh on United States growth.
Sometimes I wonder if there's almost a bloodlust out there for sanctions as an end to themselves. But let me just be really clear. We did hit hard yesterday.
Over the past few days, the US has hyped up the threat of war and created tension, which has severely impacted economic and social stability and people's lives in Ukraine and added obstacles to the dialogue and negotiation of relevant parties, such persistent inciting and spreading of false information by some people in the United States and the West have only added more turbulence and uncertainty to the world full of challenges, and intensified mistrust and division.
We consider this an escalatory step and are considering our response.
We call on Russia to end its baseless expulsions of United States diplomats and staff and to work productively to rebuild our missions.
From the most recent industry discussions I've participated in, it appears most United States home security dealers have migrated 100 % or very close to 100 % of their subscribers so it's not on most providers' to-do lists any longer.
If Russia moves forward, we will defend NATO territory, we will impose costs on Russia, and we will ensure that we emerge from this as the West stronger, more determined, more purposeful than we have been in 30 years, and that Russia ultimately suffers a significant strategic cost for military action.
If you doubt the credibility of the United States government, of the British government, of other governments and want to, you know, find solace in information that the Russians are putting out, that is for you to do.
In the long run we either need proper protections in the United States, or we will end up with separate products for the United States and the European Union regulation, i would personally prefer better protections in the United States, but this is up to the United States legislator - not to anyone in Europe.
I think it's a massive deal, they effectively said they don't plan on utilizing any of the net loss carry forwards. That means their United States operations are losing money. It's an argument we've made over and over again. Outside of China, Tesla loses money.
Our nation had a patchwork of underfunded, understaffed, poorly coordinated health departments and decades out-of-date data systems, none of which were equipped to handle a modern-day public health crisis.
I definitely feel as though I'm just as American as I am Chinese. I am American when I am in the United States, I am Chinese when I am in China. I've been outspoken about my gratitude to both the United States and China for making me the person I am.

I expected a change in this country, assistance. But to this day, I haven't received it.
I was leaving behind my mother, my family. But the words I always remember were those of my mother who told me one morning,' I prefer to see Mimi Tsankov far away than dead,'.

I have very very deep roots in China.
Deadly opioids like fentanyl and heroin don't care about who you are or what you've accomplished, they just feed addiction and lead to tragedy.

There is going to have to be a response all along that NATO front line that acts as a deterrent... and you have to have a whole war-fighting strategy around that, in Europe, this would change things enormously -- because we're so far from thinking in those terms.
I'm the President of Ukraine, I'm based here, and I think I know the details deeper than any other president, it's important that the( United States) President should know the situation from me, not from the intermediaries. The Ukrainian President knows the situation for me personally, and we're talking to each other.
I can't be like other politicians who are grateful to United States just for being the United States.

I begin on the premise that you don't trust what Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov or Vladimir Putin say, i don't think we can assume that just because Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov says that Russia is not going to invade that that's the case, so I just think we have to assume the worst at this point.
These are adversaries, their whole intent is to basically weaken the United States, weaken the alliance and undermine our democracy, and I think it's very important for the United States and our allies to be very strong about the kind of response that will take place if The US and Europe invade.
The full strength of RF AF( Russian Federation's Armed Forces) land group at the Ukrainian direction --( is) over 106,000 personnel. Together with the sea and air component, the total number of personnel is over 127,000 servicemen.

While China is facing huge economic headwinds, the country has defied bearish predictions in the past, in other words, Western banks are playing the long game under the guise of portfolio diversification.
One of the Chinese Communist Party's key attributes has been its adaptability and its pragmatism.
In other words, the CCP must integrate to survive, which means that it can not completely eschew existing global norms or systems even as it tries to alter them to suit Beijing's needs.
The United States and its NATO allies are not ready to meet Russia halfway on the key issues, the main problem is that United States and its NATO allies, under no guise, for any reason are not ready to meet our key demands.
Even prior to Covid, screening uptake was not where it needed to be for the United States public.

We expect there to be 25 million to 30 million point of care tests per month available. It is certainly possible to test all of the students.
It's easy to talk about' test, trace, isolate' but hard to do. When you look at the robustness of South Korea response, it's a terrific set of lessons that can be replicated, the other important factor in South Korea appears to be transparent communication and public trust. It's going to be harder in places where South Korea response was mismanaged or politicized, like the United States and UK.
Embassy and consulate general officials performed multiple follow-up visited and verified screening was preceding comprehensively and efficiently.

We intend to get [ remdesivir ] to patients in the early part of this next week, beginning to work with the government, which will determine which cities are most vulnerable and where the patients are that need this medicine.
What we will do is provide that donation to the United States government, and they will determine, based upon things like ICU beds, where the course of the epidemic is in the United States.

The consistency and predictability of the( Guam) deployment raised serious operational vulnerabilities. A planner in China's military could have easily plotted ways of destroying the bombers due to their well-known presence.
United States officials will need to work harder to reassure allies and the region that the temporary absence and unpredictability of the United States presence represents an increase in the United States commitment to the region, not a decrease.

Reaching out to United States... is part of part of Putin's long-term plan to basically undermine the credibility of United States as an important stalwart player in the global system, to undermine our alliances, and then to create as many lasting sources of tension between Donald Trump and United States own national security team, the more that Russia succeeds in doing that, the less pressure Russia itself is likely to face from a unified western camp.
Obviously as we've seen, Donald Trump and Putin have met and discussed things together where the rest of the people were not in the picture, this has been characteristic of Donald Trump and Putin the times they've met. We still don't know what they discussed in Finland.
I do think the United States and Russia can help each other, if not now, certainly in the aftermath of this thing, whether and to what degree Americans are willing to offer some normalization in exchange for this is entirely up to us.
I think you just have to be clear eyed about what it is you're cooperating on and understand there are other things you can't cooperate on.
One thing everybody has learned by now is that the Republicans occupying the White House and running the United States Senate are not interested in progress, they're interested in power.

Leaders must do everything possible to prevent incarcerated people and those who work in prisons from becoming ill and spreading the virus.
We've made it very clear, every time I've been up here, about the co-morbidities, this has been known from the beginning. So those individuals will have an underlying condition, but that underlying condition did not cause their acute death when it's related to a Covid infection.
I know you've seen the slope on the United States versus the slope in Italy, and we have to change that slope, what it means in the US is not everyone is doing it.

We need to target the big chain stores and get them to carry copper bullets, then I can set up education days at these stores, with a vulture, red tail( hawk) or eagle and show the hunters and point them to the copper ammo. Then we can start to win this war... the war on lead, not on hunters.

This is about consequences, we need answers on how this decision was reached, whether there was an alternative and whether the President has thought through the consequences in particular for American lives and not just the troops who are on planes going to the Middle East right now, but United States citizens around the world whose lives may be at risk, because of the fallout from this action.

The success of Japan tells us that our technology is up to that mark... just like where we got Masa Son as a partner in Japan, if we get some partner like that, we're headed to the US soon, we would love to start the journey ASAP, but we would have to build our finances well for [ the ] United States market... inshallah if it happens soon, then we are going to do it soon.

They have a 25 % tariff on agricultural commodity imports from the United States, they could double that potentially, i think it's a balancing act for them. They want to retaliate for political reasons... but actually in economic terms probably their best option would be to do nothing.

We chose to have our voice heard at this moment because the United States government considers us a threat to national security, they have to have evidence. Everybody in the world is talking about cybersecurity and they are singling out Huawei.

That's why we want to make clear our stance by suing the United States government.
The United States market is relatively minor for us, i don't see the value of me going to United States. We're better having the lawyers handle the cases.

If he is not elected, then, to the extent that the Russians were colluding with members of his team, we're still going to investigate that even without him being President, because any time the Russians do anything with a United States person, we care, and it's very serious to us, but if he becomes President, that totally changes the game because now he is the President of the United States.
This case had been a topic of discussion for some time, the' waiting on' was an indecision and a cautiousness on the part of the Bureau with respect to what to do, whether there was sufficient predication to open.
I don't think most Americans, in their heart, want to be given something. I've spent a lot of time traveling around this country over the last four years. People want to work for what they get. So, I think this idea of a guaranteed minimum is not something most people want. They want the ability to be able to secure a job.
It's so hard coming to a United States home field, where having that kind of atmosphere against Phil Neville is difficult, and that's what it's going to be like in the World Cup, so I think the best way to replicate it is in the United States.
The 2018 National Defense Authorization Act requires the Department of Defense to submit a report on civilian casualties caused as a result of United States military operations.

The base issue is tied to all of our other problems but we don't want to just limit the discussion to the United States military presence, we need to open up a dialogue about Okinawa's future.
The sheer number and force of the weapons that were recovered from Mr. Hasson's residence in this case, coupled with the disturbing nature of his writings, appear to reflect the very significant threat to the safety of our community, particularly given the position of trust that Mr. Hasson held with the United States government.
This year marks my father's 100th birthday and the 75th anniversary of Karen Korematsu v. United States decision. At these milestones, it is a reminder that we must' Stand Up For What is Right' and' Stop Repeating History' by enacting a law that will ensure what happened to my father and 120,000 Americans of Japanese ancestry can never be done to anyone again in the United States.
There's a lot of trade and economic flow between January Taiwan and The US as well as investment and trade with China, we have to make sure that we can lessen the impact of any kind of uncertainty on Taiwan's economy.
With China becoming increasingly strong and ambitious, we are faced with growing threats, our challenge is whether our independent existence, security, prosperity and democracy can be maintained. This is the biggest issue for January Taiwan.
If it's January Taiwan today, people should ask who's next ? Any country in the region -- if it no longer wants to submit to the will of China, they would face similar military threats.
It's not a simple question of invitation and acceptance, whether or not to go deliver a speech in Washington would depend on whether such a move benefits January Taiwan, our relations with the United States and regional stability.
The court asked for information from the US that apparently The US didn't give.
They are desperately concerned that they might lose their access to health care.

The United States Government violates asylum seekers' rights and fails to uphold responsibilities under international law when The US government expels them to Mexico while they seek refuge in United States.

There's not much optimism, but are we too pessimistic ? I don't know, I think the pessimism this year is warranted.

Florida will be a key state in 2020, i'm sure that's part of Trump's consideration.
The United States endorsement is politically important, symbolically important, but in order to see a regime change, there are some things lacking, over the years President Nicolas Maduro's been very clever about co-opting their support, sharing economic benefits with them -- the military now has an oil services company.
I think a lot of it is about Florida politics.
Whatever is good for Marco Rubio and Marco Rubio constituencies is good for President Donald Trump and voters in Florida, as Marco Rubio thinks about 2020.

Missile Defense Review states that North Korea has yet to achieve the capability to credibly threaten the United States homeland. North Korea has not conducted enough tests to establish confidence in a reliable, working missile. But we have to assume that North Korea has a nuclear-armed ICBM that could strike the United States, even if the missile only have a 50 % chance of hitting a major United States city, that's enough to establish a modicum of deterrence.
Over the past decade, it has invested considerable resources in its nuclear and ballistic missile programs, and undertaken extensive nuclear and missile testing in order to realize the capability to threaten the United States homeland with missile attack. As a result, North Korea has neared the time when it could credibly do so.
Missile defense has a role to play as part of a comprehensive effort to counter the North Korean threat but it's a limited one and its capabilities are often vastly overstated. United States and United States allies can not missile defense United States way out of vulnerability to North Korea's nuclear missiles.
Joaquin was really interested in what people were saying about him, if it( didn't) pertain to him, he did not really care.

The continued decline in the cancer death rate over the past 25 years is really good news and was a little bit of a surprise, only because the other leading causes of death in the United States are starting to flatten. So we've been wondering if that's going to happen for cancer as well, but so far American Cancer Society hasn't.

Apple is a barometer for United States tech stocks.
Conducting an official visit to the country would allow me to get first-hand, direct information about the situation of migrant children, especially on those who are being held in detention, it would also allow me to present my recommendations to the United States government to fulfill its international commitments to respect and protect the human rights of all migrants.
I think that at least going back 40 years there is no comparison that you can make in terms of degree, president Bill Clinton really doesn't respect the judiciary and the rule of law as we expect and need Presidents to. ... President Bill Clinton just weighs in for what I think are clear partisan political purposes.

When Trump announced that the US would pull out of The Paris Agreement, we thought it would be reflected strongly in having a United States administration blocking negotiations, fortunately, that hasn't happened.

The arrest of Huawei's CFO in Canada will significantly raise the uncertainty of China's 5G timing, since any United States export ban imposed on Huawei could either delay China's 5G rollout, or significantly reduce the scale near term.
Was the provocation organized by Kiev in this region the real reason for cancellation ? publicly, we heard just such an explanation, we took note of it. Is this a reality ? I think that you still need to look for answers in the United States domestic political situation. The dominant factor in making a decision is domestic political realities in the US.
The worst case scenario here is something like the denial order slapped on ZTE that would bar United States companies from supplying Huawei, and it depends on United States companies for critical components.

We expect to keep working with( United States Olympic Committee) to act in the best interests of all gymnasts.
We've been here before, we suspect since he negotiated this deal himself, Donald Trump will be much more reluctant to torpedo it when his own personal reputation is on the line.
It's a deal between the United States and China made by the President and the President.
The good news is that this truce should be seen as Washington recognizing the potential damage on the United States economy if tariffs escalate further.
The negotiation is likely to remain challenging given the competition in a number of areas, especially technological development.
We anticipate that things are still likely to get worse before they get better.
If they did make the smartphones in the United States, it would add somewhere between 20 % to 35 % more to the final consumer prices of the phones sold to the public.
Mexico's next federal administration does not consider within its plans that Mexico assume the condition of 'third secure country' for the attention of Central American migrants or citizens of other countries in Mexican territory or those who will have that intention in the future.
It's delusional of some United States elites to think that China is the largest beneficiary of the international system since they mistakenly blame China for the US' own problems. China has realized its development through hard work, not by taking advantage of the international system.
Agents remain alert. CBP has deployed additional resources to ensure the continued security of the border, and safety for everyone in the area. United States Customs and Border Protection officials continue to monitor the movement in Mexico of individuals who are part of the caravan, at this time, we believe that at least some of those individuals currently gathered in this area are from the caravan.
The threat of famine is a very real threat and risks doubling the numbers of people in Yemen who are at risk of dying of hunger or famine. That's the urgent factor here.
I believe it was a political prosecution, there's no doubt in mind, I'm 100 % certain that it was, as United States attorney( Whitaker) spoke at Christian Coalition events and would often refer to bringing God into his decision-making process and being guided by God's hand.

There is no plan for United States military forces to be involved in the actual mission of denying people entry to the United States, there is no plan for soldiers to come in contact with immigrants or to reinforce Department of Homeland Security as they're conducting their mission.
The President gave us a legal order : Support the Department of Homeland Security, it's not my job to assess the appropriateness of the mission.
We are providing enabling capabilities.
It's not my job to assess the appropriateness of the mission.
Citizenship was a central question left open by the original Constitution, at the time it was written, the Constitution assumed citizenship, but it didn't provide any rules for it. In the infamous Dred Scott decision, the Chief Justice said African Americans can't be citizens of the United States and' had no rights which the white man was bound to respect.'.
The 14th Amendment was designed to overturn this decision and define citizenship once and for all, and it was based on birthright, it is really important that it's a vision of citizenship based on land rather than blood. It is an idea that anyone can be an American if they commit themselves to our Constitutional values.
Asian immigrants were the first immigrants to the US that couldn't be considered white, so they are treated differently. They are taxed differently, they are stripped of many rights. In the 1880s, they are excluded from immigration and barred from citizenship.
[ The Supreme Court's decision ] said that the right of citizenship is not a matter of inheritance, that it never descends from generation to generation, it is related to where you're born, the Supreme Court's about the power of place. The Supreme Court has been a very expansive, and at the time, a corrective measure to a more exclusionary definition both legally as well as culturally as to what an American is.
This second sentence of the Amendment means that states have to respect the Bill of Rights as well as basic civil rights and the rights that come along with citizenship, the idea was that there were rights that were so basic ; so integral to citizenship that they could not be narrowed by the states.
For Asian immigrants, the racial argument at the time was that' It didn't matter whether one were born in the United States or not, Asians as a race, are unassimilable. They are diametrically opposite from us Americans,' that was the argument that was used to intern Japanese citizens. It was the denial of citizenship in favor of race :' The ability to become American, the ability to assimilate, they just didn't have it.'.
The 14th Amendment distinguishes between the privileges of citizenship and the privileges of all people, the framers [ of the amendment ] thought there were certain rights that were so important that they should be extended to all persons, and in order to specify that they needed a new' due process' clause.
At the time following the Civil War, at its core, it meant all persons had the right to be protected by the police, that the laws of the country should protect all people, in the 20th century, more broader questions were litigated under the 14th Amendment, like Brown v. Board of Education -- whether segregation was constitutional. Cases involving the internment of Japanese citizens, case from the marriage equality decisions, even Roe vs. Wade have strains of equal protection language and invoke due process law.
Even as [ these amendments ] were written, obviously there were major built-in inequalities and maybe at the time weren't intended to apply to everyone.
While The Supreme Court has not explicitly ruled [ on the instance of children of illegal immigrants ], Congress has passed all kinds of laws presuming their citizenship.

Following waves of restrictive legislation in the United States, the parallels between women seeking abortion in the United States and Ireland and Northern Ireland are striking, women in Northern Ireland have three options when faced with a pregnancy they do not want or feel they can not continue : travel long distances to access in-clinic abortion care, remain pregnant, or self-source their own abortion outside the formal healthcare setting.
Americans expect United States to assert bold leadership on the world stage that reflects our values.

The fundamentals and future of the United States economy remain incredibly strong.
I forge a personal connection with them, and then ask them what they need, how can I help them.

Google is a company with a lot of enemies, including in the United States, lots of people will be inclined to read the decision as a form of discriminatory, protectionist behavior by the European Union, but... the complaints often come from United States companies.

There's a fear that moving too quickly on inter-Korean relations will undermine United States efforts to maintain pressure on North Korea to denuclearize and prematurely open the door to renewed economic engagements, it's a dynamic that comes from a long-standing mismatch in outlook between Seoul, which prioritizes peace and stability in its immediate neighborhood, and Washington -- which has an overwhelming focus on denuclearization.

It's seen as a religious necessity from a Shariah point of view.

This is just another example of the almost Shakespearian drama that has unfolded between United States and Turkey since 2016, there is a real sentiment within the pro-Erdogan camp that the US was covertly a backer of the 2016 coup against Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
Incirlik has always sort of been entangled in this situation, viewed by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan backers and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan as a chip in a game, at the officer to officer level... relationships are as good as they can be given the circumstances. However, the politics between the United States, under two administrations, and the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan government are becoming more and more poisonous -- and this is where it becomes more dangerous.
The intelligence community continues to be concerned about the threats of upcoming United States elections, both the midterms and the presidential elections of 2020, our focus here today is simply to tell the American people we acknowledge the threat, it is real, it is continuing and we are doing everything we can to have a legitimate election that the American people can have trust in.
This conviction has led me, from the beginning of my ministry, to advocate at different levels for the global abolition of the death penalty, i am convinced that this way is the best, since every life is sacred, every human person is endowed with an inalienable dignity, and society can only benefit from the rehabilitation of those convicted of crimes.
The number of US states carrying out executions increased from five in 2016 to eight, with Arkansas, Ohio and Virginia resuming executions after a hiatus, four states -- Idaho, Mississippi, Missouri and Nebraska -- as well as United States federal courts, imposed death sentences in 2017, after a hiatus, bringing the number of US states imposing death sentences to 15.

The Chinese are very good at taking advantage of opportunities, which they may have been able to do in the recent past with our focus on the Middle East for the first part of the 2000s and following that the financial crisis, we have to get back to doing what we do well. Our soft power is incredibly more powerful than their soft power. They don't really have that same kind of attractiveness that the United States system has, and I think that's because our partners around the world know we stand by them and know we won't impose our will on them, that we'll work together with them.

But in the strange and uncertain times that we are in -- and they are strange, and they are uncertain, with each day's news cycles bringing more head spinning and disturbing headlines -- I thought maybe it would be useful to step back for a moment and try to get some perspective, so I hope you'll indulge me.

No one should ever doubt United States in meeting its commitments to the mutual defense of the NATO alliance, unfortunately, this motion has become necessary because some of our closest allies have come to question the United States commitment to collective self-defense. President Donald Trump on Tuesday has at times called the alliance' obsolete.' Our allies are starting to wonder whether they can rely on United States to come to their defense in a crisis.

It's inappropriate to be having war games.
The administration is arguing that by inflicting this harm, on children and parents, this stress, they're sending a message, a deterrent message, for people not to seek asylum in the United States, what they're doing is making it very difficult for people seeking asylum to actually cross at the legal border points.
The President has long expressed a desire to work more closely with Russia.
I have spoken with Emirati leaders and made clear our desire to address their security concerns while preserving the free flow of humanitarian aid and life-saving commercial imports.
We're in a much better place... where we're on the diplomatic path, as opposed to where we were six or eight months ago.
As far as moving troops off the Korean Peninsula, I think we need to stay there, we don't just withdraw our troops, no.
My own sense is that Kim Jong would only be ready to( totally disarm) at the end of a very long process and that Kim Jong goal at the present time is to remain a de facto nuclear power while reducing the sense of worry and threat about that so Kim Jong can begin to develop the economy, i do think United States is very serious about wanting to make North Korea a more normal country, looking more like North Korea neighbors, more like a successful Asian economy.
I do think United States is very serious about wanting to make North Korea a more normal country, looking more like North Korea neighbors, more like a successful Asian economy.
I did suggest it... I guess they are going to go back to the drawing board and check it out, the relationships are very good.
In the United States and Canada, infants from indigenous communities die at higher rates -- 40 % higher than the national average in the United States and 20 to 360 % higher than the rest of Canada.
Now that North Korea has clearly demonstrated that North Korea can be cooperative and come to the table, this United States cancellation makes North Korea's argument that North Korea is acting in good faith more plausible.
The only regular channel that existed between the United States and Iran was the JCPOA, now that the US has violated that and pulled out of it, it's difficult to see how we're going to get those Americans out.

I am sure one day, the US will come back and join the Paris agreement.
The truth is that it means veterans in distress. We mean no disrespect to the United States, a country we consider home and risked our lives for, i may have been deported, but I am American, and I took an oath to honor and protect the United States flag every day.
What we want to do is raise awareness around the issue of deported veterans. It's not about us trying to take on our own government or us trying to create imagery that's hostile toward the United States of America.
We want to send an SOS to the American people and to other United States military veterans to raise awareness about what's going on with the deportation of members of our military and the hardships that many of them who honorably served in the US armed forces face.
An agent from The US Border Patrol called and said that United US Deported Veterans had to change or remove the mural because they can't have anything on United States property that says United States of America is in distress, so either United US Deported Veterans fix The US Border Patrol or they would paint over it.
The group can adjust it to a regular flag or whatever they want, but just as long as it's not a distress United States flag.
I may have been deported, but I am American, and I took an oath to honor and protect the United States flag every day.
Kim Yo Jong will affirm the principle of denuclearization as Kim Yo Jong did in 2005, and the implementation will be drawn up and never happen.
Kim Yo Jong really are threatened by superior American and South Korean military power, Kim Yo Jong need nuclear weapons to try and prevent an invasion in Kim Yo Jong view, kim Yo Jong feel the need to equate Kim Yo Jong nuclear program with the( United States and South Korean) military alliance and claims the military alliance is a nuclear threat, when there's no real grounds for Kim Yo Jong.
It's called CVID -- complete, verifiable, irreversible dismantlement of the North Korean program.
The pessimistic interpretation is that Kim Yo Jong is intent on making concession after concession in private to show Moon Jae-in that Moon Jae-in is the reasonable one, with the expectation that Donald Trump will ultimately be unable or unwilling to deliver.
This is a pretty high bar stuff and we will have to see, but it is an extraordinary step to be taken, for sure.

The President understands that if we don't solve this problem.
I'm concerned about the fact that The President feels like The President has to give something to Russia first when there have been repeated instances of Russia being sanctioned in Ukraine, committing war crimes in Syria and conducting operations that are contrary to what we'd like to believe are freedom of operations and sovereignties of different nations.
