President Trump said former President Obama “had to know about” what he believes was a “setup” to prevent Trump from becoming president. “There was no crime. There was no collusion. The big thing’s collusion,” Trump said to George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s “This Week.” “Now there’s no collusion. That means they set — it was a setup, in my opinion, and I think it’s gonna come out.” “You clearly believe there was a group of people working against you,” Stephanopoulos said. “Do you think President Obama was behind it?” “I would say that he certainly must have known about it because it went very high up in the chain, but you’re gonna find that out. I’m not gonna ...
President Trump ramped up his attacks against The New York Times, accusing the newspaper of committing “a virtual act of Treason” over its report about the U.S. increasing cyberattacks on Russia’s electric power grid. “Do you believe that the Failing New York Times just did a story stating that the United States is substantially increasing Cyber Attacks on Russia,” Trump tweeted. “This is a virtual act of Treason by a once great paper so desperate for a story, any story, even if bad for our Country.” “Anything goes with our Corrupt News Media today,” he added. “They will do, or say, whatever it takes, with not even the slightest thought of consequence! These are true cowards and without doubt, THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE!” Re...

Buenos Aires - The president of the Center for the Study of Energy Regulatory Activity in Argentina says that a massive blackout that left millions without electricity “has never happened” in the country. Raúl Bertero is a professor at the University of Buenos Aires. He said Sunday that systemic operational and design errors played a role in the power grid’s collapse. “A localized failure like the one that occurred should be isolated by the same system,” he said. “The problem is known and there is technology and studies that (work to) avoid it.” He also said that independent experts should be asked to determine what happened. The failure left many in Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay without electricity for hours.

In her first Sunday morning show appearance since taking office in January, New York Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez warned that there is "very real risk" President Trump will win re-election in 2020, and acknowledged that progressive frustration with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is also "quite real." The comments struck an unusually defensive tone for the 29-year-old progressive firebrand, as Democrats seek to winnow their large list of 23 presidential contenders. Ocasio-Cortez also spoke bluntly on her initiative to repeal the Hyde Amendment, which bars most federal funding for abortion -- and 2020 Democrat frontrunner Joe Biden's abrupt reversal on the issue earlier this month. "I think that we have a very real risk of losing the presidency...

Argentina -  A massive blackout left more than 44 million people without electricity in Argentina and Uruguay on Sunday after an unexplained failure in the neighboring countries’ interconnected power grid. Authorities were working frantically to restore power but only about a half a million in Argentina had electricity back by early afternoon. Voters cast ballots by the light of cell phones in gubernatorial elections in Argentina. Public transportation halted, shops closed and patients dependent on home medical equipment were urged to go to hospitals with generators. “I was just on my way to eat with a friend, but we had to cancel everything. There’s no subway, nothing is working,” said Lucas Acosta, a 24-year-old Buenos Aires resident. “What’s wo...
Sullivan County, NY -  The battle to contain the worst U.S. measles outbreak in 27 years has a new front: summer camp. Vaccinations have been made mandatory this summer for campers and staff in several counties north of New York City that annually fill up with kids from the Orthodox Jewish communities that have been hit hardest by measles. Ulster County took the extra step of mandating the measles vaccine or proof of immunity at all day camps and overnight camps, becoming the latest county in the area to issue immunization requirements. Rockland County announced a similar order this month, following mandates from Sullivan and Orange counties. “We have to make sure our t’s are crossed and our i’s are dotted in making sure all these vaccination records are in and ha...

Washington (AFP) - A nationwide Fox News poll released Sunday shows President Donald Trump trailing former vice president Joe Biden and no fewer than four other Democratic contenders as early campaigning for the 2020 election begins to gain steam. A separate survey of battleground states, by CBS, shows Democrats strongly favor Biden as the candidate most likely to beat Trump in next year's elections. The Fox poll showed Biden leading Trump by 49 percent to 39 percent among all registered voters nationwide, while Senator Bernie Sanders held nearly the same advantage over the president, at 49 percent to 40 percent. Holding edges of 1 or 2 points over Trump -- albeit within the poll's 3-point margin of error -- were Senators Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris, as well as Mayor Pe...

Jerusalem - He actively demonstrated against the State of Israel as a child, burning Israeli flags and criticizing the IDF, but today Zalman Schwartz is a 22 year old member of the Israel Border Police who has successfully foiled a terror attack. In an interview with Yediot Aharonot (http://bit.ly/2KlUk3c), the 22 year old Schwartz said that he grew up in Monsey as a member of the Neturei Karta community.  He and his friends were educated to be anti-Israel, and told that it was forbidden to Jews to live in Israel or for the IDF to even exist. While Schwartz said that he had a happy childhood, he felt that like a stranger in his own community.  By age 14 he took his first steps towards the outside world, eventually abandoning his religiosity as well.  Five years later, Schw...
Washington -  It was the escalator ride that would change history. Four years ago on Sunday, Donald Trump descended through the pink marble and brass atrium of Trump Tower to announce his candidacy for president , the first step on a journey few believed would take him all the way to the White House. It turns out the 2015 event might not have happened, at least not on June 16. And the over-the-top staging that featured a crowd including paid actors could have been even more theatrical if one early idea hadn’t been scrapped. (Trump nixed suggestions to feature a live elephant. “Too political,” he decided.) Now, the president who loves to reminisce about that “famous” Trump Tower moment is trying to recreate the magic as he formally launches his re-elec...

President Rivlin: "Moderation – religious, nationalist and cultural – are the true way to reach the hearts of people. That is the right way to live." Imam Chalgoumi: "Religion itself is not the problem, rather political Islam that tries to create conflict between Jews and Muslims.
