U.S., Iran held indirect talks this week on avoiding more attacks
  • Negotiating with enemies is actually a good thing. Maybe they saw Israel's precise targeting vs their failed barrage of rockets that got shot down and figured that the threat of war with the west isn't all what they make it out to be.

    US confirms first aid trucks arrive via Gaza pier
  • This is a difficult area to build a pier (currents and weather-wise). There's a reason there wasn't one in the first place.

    Will this placate anyone? Probably not.

    But, it sure will come in handy as time goes on.

  • Rev. Billy Graham statue unveiled at US Capitol
  • With his close friend Richard Nixon's ascendance to the presidency, Graham advised that Vietnamization was the key to victory in his "Confidential Missionary Plan for Ending the Vietnam War." In addition, while he publicly gave lip service to being apolitical, Graham organized massive events that provided veiled support for Nixon and the war in Vietnam.

    www.nytimes.com Republicans Flock to Trump’s Trial, Risking Control of the House Floor

    On Thursday, an entourage of about 20 accompanied the former president to court. Among them were many lawmakers.

    Republicans Flock to Trump’s Trial, Risking Control of the House Floor

    "The House was in session at the Capitol on Thursday, but thanks to the latest procession of Republicans reporting for duty in front of a Manhattan criminal courthouse to show support for former President Donald J. Trump at his trial, the party risked ceding its control of the floor,” the New York Times reports.

    “Almost a dozen House Republicans showed up at the courthouse on Thursday…”

    “Republicans control the House by such a slim margin, 217-213, that just two defections can sink legislation if all members are present and voting — and just a few absences can erase their majority altogether. The show of support for Mr. Trump from such a large group of members meant that for much of Thursday, the G.O.P. may have handed the floor over to Democrats, leaving themselves exposed on the House floor.”
