Modi urges India to reject violence in name of religion

NEW DELHI (Reuters) – Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday urged India to reject religious violence, after a series of attacks on minorities has sparked a debate over whether an outbreak of Hindu nationalism would undermine the country’s secular ideals.

In a speech from the Red Fort walls of Delhi marking the 70th anniversary of India’s independence, Modi has also listed his government’s achievements, including the fight against corruption.

The speech was the light in foreign policy, not to mention the rival Archipelago Pakistan or China. India has practiced for almost two months, hundreds of soldiers along its northern border with China due to a territorial dispute.

Modi spoke out against Hindu right-wing attacks, many claim his Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) against minority Muslims and low caste Hindus accused of killing cows, considered sacred by the majority Hindus.

But the establishment of his complaint of violence Tuesday was significant.

“We do not tolerate violence in the name of faith,” Modi told a crowded crowd at the fort and a large television audience.

Modi has made much of the progress made by India since independence from British rule in 1947.

But it also expresses the grief over the deaths of 60 children in a state hospital last week amid a shortage of supplies – a reminder to be made in India’s journey to development.

Since coming to power in 2014, Modi has struggled to balance the demands of his Hindu groups with the nationalist base base and the Indians who were trying to build a modern, secular country that matches their growing economic influence.

Manoj Joshi, a colleague of the Observer Research Foundation’s expert group says that he played Modi “good cop, bad cop” who condemns community violence, but doing little to contain the elements of his party in power.

“There’s a clear difference between the slogan and the application. It’s a deliberate breach and that’s just for the record,” he said.

Modi also spoke at length about the publication of a “new India” by 2022, underlining his confidence in winning the next general election scheduled for 2019.

Strong growth and economic reforms have strengthened the popularity of Modi and his party helped sweep the states elections in recent years, which prevented the opposition to weaken.

However, to meet the needs of the 1.3 billion people in India, the government must create millions of additional jobs per year, it is difficult to do.

“A certain level of complacency … brought Modi into power,” analyst Ajai Shukla told NDTV. “Now he realizes that people are waiting for answers. He felt the need to convey an aura of progress.”

New Trump-Russia emails could establish a ‘devastating’ legal entanglement for Paul Manafort

Paul Manafort, the campaign’s chief of triumph over time and a topical issue in Russia’s survey, also expressed concern over the proposal and rejected Papadopoulos’s request for a Trump-Putin meeting in 2016 May.

Rejecting Manafort is opposed to his willingness to take an appointment with a Russian lawyer a few weeks later, in June, a point Renato Mariotti, a former federal prosecutor, raised after breaking the story.

Mariotti wrote that perhaps the most important consequence of the new era was that “everyone in the emails was aware of the concerns expressed in the emails regarding the meetings with the Russians, including the concern of the Admiral in Kubic legality to comply With the Russians. ”

“If any of these emails later met Russian or they accepted their help,” said M. Mariotti, “previous emails about concerns could be used to indicate that they knew the meeting was problematic and potentially illegal , But nevertheless persisted. ”

The meeting held by Manafort in June did not include Trump, but Trump included the son, Donald Jr., his son and chief adviser Jared Kushner. Also present were Veselnitskaya Natalia, a Russian lawyer who has made a great effort against 2012

Some law and Magnitsky tied to the Kremlin; Akhmetshin Rinat, Russian pressure group and former Soviet military intelligence officer; Samachornov Anatoly Russian; And the British music publisher Rob Goldstone, who arranged the meeting at the request of Aras and Emin Agalarov, a rich Russian family.

Trump Putin
“The legal problems are very similar, if not the same”
One of the main differences between the two meetings that might explain the rejection of one Manafort and the acceptance of the other is that the meeting was Papadapoulos “organized as a meeting at the Trump,” said Andrew Wright, associate professor at the Faculty of Law Of Savannah.

In an email sent to former campaign chief Corey Lewandowki Trump in April 2016, Papadopoulos said he received “a lot of calls in the last month” for what “Putin wants to host the Trump team when the time comes.

Australia Official Accuses New Zealand Party of Undermining Its Government

The main diplomatic ustralia today criticized New Zealand’s main opposition party, accusing it of trying to “undermine the Australian government” by exposing the details of the citizenship status of a great Australian politician.

Julie Bishop, the Australian chancellor and deputy leader of the right-wing Liberal Party, made the comments a day after the revelations have revealed that Australia’s Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce was New Zealand by descent.

The citizenship of M. Joyce is involved because the Australian Constitution does not allow dual citizens to be lawmakers.

His case will be decided by the Supreme Court of Australia and, if he is removed from office, the government will lose its majority in a vote in the lower house of Parliament and will have difficulty approving legislation.

The claim that an opposition party in New Zealand conspires to overthrow the Australian government is an incredible turning point in relations between the two countries, which have warm and long-term collegiate relationships despite the much broader influence of Australia in the World stage.

Population of about 24 million Australia is six times higher than that of New Zealand and the Australian economy is nearly 10 times greater than that of New Zealand.

Four other Australian politicians in recent weeks have resigned or been heavily scrutinized because of their citizenship, but as the second second elected official in the country, M. Joyce is the most important for citizenship is questioned. In addition to being the Prime Minister, M. Joyce is head of the National Law Party and former senator.
A New Zealand Labor Party politician also raised issues that need to be addressed later this week in the New Zealand Parliament, Australians have New Zealand nationality.

The politician, Chris Hipkins, acknowledged that a member of the Australian Labor Party had suggested increasing the questions.

Ms Bishop accused the Australian Labor Party of contacting the New Zealand Labor Party – two leftist opposition parties – to suggest an investigation into the citizenship of M. Joyce.

Ms Bishop specifically pointed out to Bill Shorten, the leader of the Australian Labor Party, saying she uses the New Zealand Labor Party to “ask questions in a foreign parliament deliberately designed to undermine confidence in the Australian government.”

New Zealand has a general election on September 23 and the Bishop said her government would have difficulty working with the New Zealand Labor Party won. He said that leftist parties in the two countries have endangered relations between Australia and New Zealand.

“I think it would be very difficult to trust the members of a political party that had been used by the Australian Labor Party to try to weaken the Australian government,” he said.

The new party head New Zealand Jacinda Ardern, called Mrs. Bishop false accusations.

Brexit: UK suggests ‘untested’ customs system with EU

The model, one of the two offered in a recently published document would mean no customs control on the borders between the UK and the European Union.

The UK’s alternative proposal – a more effective border control system – means “an increase in administration,” he admits.

A key EU figure said the idea of ​​”invisible boundaries” was a “fantasy”.
On Twitter, Guy Verhofstadt, the European Parliament’s negotiator, added that other issues need to be agreed before trade negotiations can begin – views exchanged by Michel Barnier, the leading negotiator in EU leader.

The UK has already said it would leave the Customs Union – duty free trade zone in the EU – then Brexit and companies have asked for clarification on what the substitution system will entail.

The UK proposals, which are detailed in what he calls a “future partnership document” also include the possibility of a “temporary customs union” after the UK left the EU in March 2019 avoid “precipice” For companies as they adapt to new arrangements.

Each country of the Union takes the same tariffs on imports from abroad.
For example, a tariff of 10% is imposed on certain vehicles imported from outside the customs union, while 7.5% is imposed on roasted coffee.
Other products like soap – or chalkboard – do not have the rates.

The departure of the EU customs union for the United Kingdom was confirmed at the weekend in a joint article Chancellor Philip Hammond and Liam Fox Secretary of Commerce.

Or without border?
According to the new document, the UK could ask Brussels to establish a “temporary customs union” after leaving the EU in March 2019.

However, during this period, it is also expected to negotiate its own international trade agreements – something it can not do as a member of the EU customs union.

Once this deadline expires, the UK will try to accept either a “highly aerodynamic” border with the EU, a new “partnership” without slippery customs.

The “partnership” agreement would be an “innovative and untested approach” that will eliminate the need to carry out customs controls between the UK and the European Union.

This would be because the UK regime “precisely aligned” with the EU, for goods to be consumed in the EU.

However, the UK would continue to operate its own controls on products from outside the EU – and the government said that security measures would be needed to prevent products from entering the European Union which did not respect its rules.

Another scenario proposed by the government would mean that the UK will extend customs controls on EU arrivals – but as part of a “highly optimized agreement” to minimize disruptions at ports and airports.

He said he would try to make the existing customs control system “more efficient”, for example by using the technology of license plate recognition in ports, which could be related to customs declarations for this that carry the Vehicles, which means that vehicles should not be stopped and manually checked.

Trump arrives home in New York, but protesters don’t see him

NEW YORK – President Donald Trump went to Trump Tower on Monday for the first time since its inauguration, with a crowd of chanting protesters waiting but never seen.

Thousands of protesters shouted “shame, shame, shame” and “not my president!” Looking at Trump’s body along Fifth Avenue in Manhattan, but finally came from another direction. A much smaller crowd of supporters Trump also hopes.

Viewers who viewed the caravan welcomed him with cell phone cameras and some obscene gestures.

Nearby, an inflatable and failed Trump caricature was near the square.

Adam Vazquez protested at Trump Tower on election night and said he had returned because he thought the country had reached a “focal point,” especially after the White supremacist demonstration, which entered into violence on Saturday in Charlottesville, Virginia.

The Republican president’s initial condemnation of intolerance and violence “from various sides, from many sides” spurred two days of pressure to specifically denounce white supremacist groups, which he did on Monday.

“This shows that the President, in times of crisis, could not walk,” said Vazquez, a producer of video content and 26. “It’s something we have to take note, go out tonight and prove that this is not correct.”

Police parked sanitation trucks filled with sand as barriers around the Trump skyscraper signatures barricades and metal police layers around the main entrance.

White nationalists, neo-Nazis and other extremist groups had planned to hold a rally in the “white” lives of Texas A & M September 11.
The school canceled the demonstration Monday night “because of concerns about the safety of its students, their teachers, staff and the public.”

One woman was killed and dozens injured when police said a man with good views of the neo-Nazis deliberately drove his car into a crowd.

Spencer headed to Texas A & M University in December, prompting outrage and protests on campus. The school eventually changed its campus teaching policy because of the controversy over its appearance.

“At the end of the day, the United States belongs to white men,” he said at that time.
Blocking the view

The students had “planned a number of different events [Counter],” Josh McCormack, editor of the battalion, told CNN. “The most popular events seem to be a recreation of the” brown wall “.

The brown wall is essentially a human chain, McCormack said. In July 2012, members of the controversial Westboro Baptist Church came to the area to protest the funeral of a soldier at a local church. When they appeared, they were greeted by hundreds of students who have joined forces to block their vision.

Trump says he’s considering pardon for Joe Arpaio

President Trump told Fox News he was seriously considering pardoning for former Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio, who was convicted last month of criminal contempt for ignoring a judge’s order to stop arrest because the suspects of being immigrants Undocumented immigrants.

Trump said the conference during a conversation in Bedminster, New Jersey, that forgiveness could come soon, perhaps in a matter of days. The media reported the conversation on its website on Monday.

“I could do it right away, maybe earlier in the week. I seriously think about it,” Trump said, according to Fox News. Arpaio said he was a “great American patriot” who had “done much in the fight against illegal immigration.”

“Is there anyone in the local law enforcement who did more to curb illegal immigration than Sheriff Joe? ‘” Trump said, according to Fox News. “He protected people from crimes and saved lives. He does not deserve to be treated this way.”

Arpaio, whose position and extreme tactics on illegal immigration made him a household name, was convicted of criminal contempt last month by a federal judge in Arizona.

He was sentenced to six months in prison for his conviction, scheduled for 5 October. Jack Wilenchik, Avocado Arpaio said qu’Arpaio was convicted the former bailiff would appeal to a jury trial and the judge’s ruling was “contrary to any witness stated in matter.”

It would nullify a conviction secured by his career attorneys at the Department of Justice. Make no mistake: this would be an official endorsement of racism by the president. “

Durham’s Confederate Statue Comes Down

Durham's Confederate Statue Comes Down

Durham’s Confederate Statue Comes Down

DURHAM, NC – It could be argued that the civil war effectively ended in the city of North Carolina. Although Robert E.

The most famous Lee appointment took place at Appomattox Court in Virginia, the sale of General Joseph Johnston Confederal to William T. Sherman in two weeks instead of Bennett, a farm on the outskirts of town, was larger and put End the war in the east.

It could also be said that, as in the May places to the south, the war was never completely finished here. Durham has been the scene of major battles over segregation and the leaders of the Klan House, and a commemorative statue of “boys who have the GRAY” remained outside the former county courthouse on Main Street.

Until Monday night.

At around 7 pm Monday, a group of demonstrators, inspired by violent riots in the removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee in Charlottesville, Virginia, decided that if Durham County was not in a hurry to pick up the rebel soldier, They would do it themselves.

As Durham County commissioners gathered inside the building, which now houses the county offices, a group of protesters tied a yellow rope around the statue and fired.

In what may seem a resounding metaphor for the fate of Confederate symbols in progressive South cities like Durham, the statue broke with little effort, mocking the feet of the imposing granite pedestal. (Although the icon has been made in bronze, it is doubtful.)

The statue stood on the well-kept court lawn since 1924, when States Daughters of the Confederacy have erected. At that time, there were 59 years of civil war was over.

The smell of tobacco stores and factories overflowing, and throughout the city of Durham, and a mile and a half off the main street, little Trinity College had not yet changed its name to Duke University.

For 83 years, the Confederate picket monitors everyone who entered the building. Then, in a matter of seconds, she was gone, irrevocably destroyed by her fall: her carabiner eaten, her legs bent forward and a great anguish in her head against a group of zealous demonstrators.
By the time I arrived less than an hour after the fall of the statue, the street was blocked by the sheriffs’ cars. Demonstrators marched just a few blocks off Main Street, where the Durham Police Department built a controversial new headquarters.

A mixture of young and old, black and white, gray-haired hippies and black-clad anarchists, shouted “Fuck Trump” and held signs saying “black lives matter” and “The whole damn system is guilty as Hell.” “Street doctors” standing to the list, if someone was injured. One man made a guitar, apparently as one instrument per instrument.
