New poll: Netanyahu's Likud down to 20 seats

The two final polls published before Israel's election predict that Zionist Union will have a four-seat margin over the prime minister's Likud.

A Channel 10 poll published on Friday, just three days before next week's Knesset election, has given only 20 seats to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's Likud party - the lowest the party has polled since the leadup to the vote.

n another poll published Friday evening by Channel 2, Likud got 22 seats, while Zionist Union got 26.

This four-seat gap between the two main parties reflects the results of most of the polls conducted over the past week.

Still the right-wing bloc was ahead of the center-left. In Channel 10's poll, the Arab Joint List got 13 seats, while Yesh Atid and Habayit Hayehudi both polled at 12 seats and Kulanu polled at 10. Shas stayed on seven seats, United Torah Judaism polled at six seats, and Yisrael Beiteinu, Yahad and Meretz all got five seats.

Will the 47 Diplomacy Saboteurs Have Democratic Enablers?

Republicans ostentatiously trying to blow up negotiations with Iran with their "open letter" to Iranian leaders - essentially begging Iranian hardliners to blow up the talks on the Republicans' behalf. Senate historians could find no precedent for the party opposed to the president in Congress trying to blow up an international negotiation involving the United States in this way.

But in terms of practical outcomes, the main drama still lies ahead. The main drama in terms of practical consequences is still all about Senate Democrats, not about Senate Republicans. Without at least six Senate Democrats supporting them, Republicans cannot pass anti-diplomacy legislation in the Senate. Without at least 13 Senate Democrats supporting them, Republicans cannot override a presidential veto of anti-diplomacy legislation. Without the support of a substantial group of Senate Democrats, Republicans cannot blow up the talks. The key question in the wake of the unprecedented controversy around the Netanyahu anti-diplomacy speech to Congress and the Republicans' open letter to Iran is: Which Senate Democrats will reward the Republicans who did these things by helping them try to blow up diplomacy?

Is It Time to Disband the Republican Party?

Unfortunately, the days of Eisenhowers, Roosevelts and Lincolns in the Republican Party are long gone, and so too are that party's progressive beginnings.

What started out as a good idea in Ripon, Wisconsin and Jackson, Michigan has turned into a nightmare for the US and for "We The People."

Today's Republican Party, the modern-day Republican Party, hasn't done a single positive thing for "We The People" in nearly 100 years.

Instead, that party consistently does things that hurt our economy, hurt our society and hurt our country.

Today's Republican Party has sold out to the wealthy elite, and only cares about helping the rich get richer.

They take millions of dollars in donations from lobbyists and mega-donors, all the while corrupting our democracy and electoral process.

Republicans today are in bed with the likes of Big Oil, ensuring that Big Oil can get even bigger, while our planet slowly gets destroyed.

Republicans today support policies that have destroyed a once flourishing working-class.

It is not the first time in recent days that fighting between Myanmar’s military and ethnic rebels near China’s border has spilled over into Chinese territory.

Earlier in the week, China’s Foreign Ministry said a house in Yunnan had been hit by shelling from across the border. And according to the Communist Party-backed Global Times newspaper, a Myanmar fighter jet crashed in Chinese territory Thursday after dropping two bombs.

Kiev junta cleaning the field? Seven high-profile suicides in Ukraine in one month

In the seventh "suicide" in one month, Ukraine lost another former member of the "Party of Regions".

Ed Note: While the Western establishment media were (and still are) all over the murder of Nemtsov like a bad rash, they are curiously silent about all these former Ukrainian politicians who are dying in highly suspicious circumstances on a weekly basis.

How to Speak Cottonese: The New Hawk in Washington

The gods destroy those they call promising. In this case, there may well be a firming agenda from various circles of praise that seem to be haloing the new, hip shooting Arkansas Senator. Much of this admiration stems from the simplicity of it all – Tom Cotton, for one, doesn’t want the implications of international diplomacy to be too troubling for US interests. For that reason, he has left his diplomacy text books at home. Embrace the inner brute, and feel more comfortable with things.

The Raiding of Ukraine’s Gold

At present, Ukraine is teetering on the brink of a default. Its rapidly dwindling gold and foreign exchange reserves are an indication of the country’s catastrophic financial situation. According to official data, on 1 February 2015 Ukraine’s international reserves amounted to $6,419.7 million. This is a triflingly small amount for a country like Ukraine. Given that the country’s average monthly imports last year were at the $5 billion level, Ukraine only has enough gold and foreign exchange reserves to cover imports for a little more than a month (in line with IMF recommendations, a country should have a minimum reserve equivalent to three months of imports).

Christopher Bollyn 2015 “Solving 911 Ends the War”

In the name of 9/11, “wars have been waged, governments overthrown, and an untold number of lives sacrificed.” Yet 9/11 is an unsolved crime of terrorism and mass murder, with no trial and no serious investigation. This elaborately planned criminal deception was carried out “with the intention that the public would be deceived with a false explanation blaming the atrocity on Osama Bin Laden and Al Quaida....”

Christopher Bollyn states he has written “Solving 9-11: the Deception that Changed the World” because he could not remain indifferent and silent...”as the lies about 9/11 were used to wage wars of aggression and transform American into a police state.”

US says UN will approve final nuclear deal between Iran, P5+1

US State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki has said that the United Nations Security Council would endorse any final nuclear agreement between Iran and the P5+1 group.

"We would anticipate that, if we're able to reach a joint comprehensive Plan of Action between the P5+1 and Iran, an endorsement vote would be held by the UN Security Council," Psaki told reporters on Friday.

She added that Washington’s unilateral restrictions imposed against Tehran would be in place, even if the UN Security Council decides to ease its sanctions on the country.

Iran and the P5+1 group -- the US, Britain, France, China, Russia, and Germany -- are currently working to complete the outlines of a nuclear deal by the end of March after they reached an interim agreement in November 2013.

The two sides have by the end of June to clinch a final agreement.
