Tech giants rally behind Apple in FBI fight

The Hill

Getty Images By Julian Hattem – 02/26/16 09:06 AM EST Major tech companies including Microsoft, Yahoo, Twitter and Facebook are coming to Apple’s aid in what could be a landmark legal battle against the FBI. The companies are preparing to file friend-of-the-court briefs in the case, which they have described as a line in the sand against the U.S. government. On Thursday, Microsoft president Brad Smith said Congress should decide the scope of American law enforcement powers — not a federal court. “The real concern here is actually the law and the implications for the future,” he said, pledging to file a brief in the…

The United States Needs to Focus on Its Own Hemisphere

The National Interest

The United States remains the leading power in the Western Hemisphere by a wide margin. Much of the speculation, so prevalent a few years ago, about the rise of new major powers in the world as diplomatic, economic and even strategic competitors to Washington has justifiably faded. That is especially true of the so-called BRICS nations—Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa—that were supposedly poised to become decisive economic and diplomatic actors. Speculation about Brazil’s new status and role especially proved to be both premature and excessive. That country, along with the other BRICS, encountered a variety of domestic limitations…

Poll: Clinton 50 points ahead of Sanders in SC

Getty mages

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has a massive lead over Bernie Sanders in South Carolina, according to a new poll. Clinton has 64 percent support in the Palmetto State, with Sanders at 14 percent, a Clemson University survey found Thursday. The state’s Democratic primary is Saturday. “After a razor-thin victory by Clinton in Iowa, a blowout by Sanders in the New Hampshire primary and a small margin by Clinton in the Nevada caucuses, Clinton is perched on the cusp of her own significant primary victory in the Palmetto State,” Bruce Ransom, a Clemson political science professor, said in a statement. Clinton has maintained huge leads in the…

Top US commander: Russia wants to ‘rewrite’ international order

Getty Images

By Rebecca Kheel – 02/25/16 04:10 PM EST The era of trying to work with Russia is over, the top U.S. commander in Europe said Thursday while arguing for the rebuilding of U.S. forces in that region. “Russia does not want to challenge the agreed rules of the international order,” Gen. Philip Breedlove told the House Armed Services Committee. “It wants to rewrite them.” Breedlove was on Capitol Hill defending the Pentagon’s budget request for fiscal 2017, which includes a fourfold increase in funding for the European Reassurance Initiative (ERI) to deter an aggressive Russia.The increase would bring the initiative’s funding to $3.4 billion.

Former Israeli PM Olmert insists on innocence as jail term begins

File picture shows former Israeli Prime Minister Olmert leaving the Tel Aviv District Court

Former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert released a video statement insisting on his innocence on Monday, before arriving at prison in a motorcade to begin a 19-month sentence for corruption. Olmert is the first former head of government in Israel to go to prison. During his premiership from 2006 to 2009, he was internationally credited with working toward a peace accord with the Palestinians, until graft scandals forced him to step down. “As prime minister I was charged with the highest responsibility of safeguarding Israel’s citizens. Today I am the one to be locked behind bars,” he said in a…

Why Assad’s Army Has Not Defected

The National Interest

Four years ago, Turkey’s then Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said that within in a few weeks he would be praying in Damascus’s Umayyad Mosque, as Assad was about to fall. Similarly, Israel’s most decorated soldier, former Defense Minister Ehud Barak, predicted that Assad and his military would be toppled within weeks. That was at the beginning of 2012, when there were no Iranian soldiers on the ground or Russian planes in the skies. As another round of Geneva peace talks collapses and the world wonders what’s next for Syria, it is time to begin with the warnings of Henry Kissinger and Zbignew Brzezinski. Kissinger and…

Obama unveils $4.1T election-year budget proposal

Getty Images

By Sarah Ferris and Jordan Fabian – 02/09/16 11:00 AM EST President Obama on Tuesday unveiled the last budget of his presidency, a $4.1 trillion plan that reflects his desire to set the agenda for his final months in office and beyond. The proposal, Obama’s costliest to date, includes a litany of long-shot progressive ideas that have little chance of becoming law in the Republican-controlled Congress. Leaders of the House and Senate budget panels have already said they will not even give the document a hearing. Obama’s final budget is also a political document unveiled on the same day as the New Hampshire primary. The…

US President Obama signs Africa electricity plan into law

AFP

US President Barack Obama has signed into law an initiative aimed at bringing electricity to 50 million people in sub-Saharan Africa by 2020. The Electrify Africa Act of 2015 will give legal backing to Mr Obama’s flagship Power Africa scheme, which is trying to improve access to electricity through public-private partnerships. It took nearly two years to be passed in both houses of the US Congress. About two-thirds of people in Africa do not have access to reliable power. Africa Live: BBC News updates Observers say the new legislation is likely to ensure that the scheme continues even after Mr…

Kissinger’s Vision for U.S.-Russia Relations

HenryKissinger

From 2007 into 2009, Evgeny Primakov and I chaired a group composed of retired senior ministers, high officials and military leaders from Russia and the United States, including some of you present here today. Its purpose was to ease the adversarial aspects of the U.S.-Russian relationship and to consider opportunities for cooperative approaches. In America, it was described as a Track II group, which meant it was bipartisan and encouraged by the White House to explore but not negotiate on its behalf. We alternated meetings in each other’s country. President Putin received the group in Moscow in 2007, and President…

Vanga: Syria will fall to rescue mankind

Pravda

Vanga is known as one of the most reputable clairvoyants of the past century. Some of her prophecies have come true exactly as Vanga formulated them, whereas some others were misunderstood by people. One of Vanga’s prophecies says that a new teaching will dramatically change mankind after the fall of Syria. People were able to understand the meaning of some of Vanga’s prophecies only after the predicted events took place. In one of them, Vanga predicted: “Kursk will go under water, and the whole world will mourn it!” Everyone thought that the prophecy was about the city of Kursk in Russia. In reality, though,…
