Palestinian attendance unclear at White House Gaza conference

The White House will hold a conference on the humanitarian situation in Gaza on Tuesday, but it is unclear whether any Palestinian officials will attend.

 

President Donald Trump’s “administration believes that deteriorating humanitarian conditions in Gaza require immediate attention,” US special envoy Jason Greenblatt said in a statement announcing the conference.

 

The meeting is expected to include top White House aide Jared Kushner, National Security Council staff and “many of the relevant parties,” according to Greenblatt.

 

It is unclear whether Palestinians officials will break their de facto boycott of US officials to attend.

 

The Palestinians were enraged by President Donald Trump’s decision to break with long-standing US policy by recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

Munich Conference: “For The First Time In Decades We Are Facing Threat Of Nuclear Conflict”

Munich Conference: “For The First Time In Decades We Are Facing Threat Of Nuclear Conflict”

Over the past fifty years, the Munich Security Conference (MSC) has traditionally reflected the current state of world military affairs. Each February, more than 450 senior decision-makers from around the globe descend into Munich, Germany, to discuss current and future security challenges.

And while there have been times in recent years when the MSC demonstrated signs of hope and optimism, none of that was evident this year. This year’s motto “To the Brink – and Back?”– which seems to be an accurate portrayal of the current geopolitical situations in most regions. After several days of senior decision-makers bickering back and forth, the negativity in the atmosphere only means one thing: A global conflict between nuclear superpowers is lingering.

“I was hoping when I opened this conference on Friday that, in concluding the conference, I would be able to say we can delete the question mark. In other words: ‘We are back from the brink,’” former German diplomat Wolfgang Ischinger said in (more…)

People hoping to attend an upcoming conference dedicated to cryptocurrencies have been told they must pay for their tickets in regular old dollars because using crypto is too slow and expensive.

The North American Bitcoin Conference (TNABC), which will be held in Miami next week, said on its website that it has closed payments using bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies due to network congestion and manual processing.

“Due to the manual inputting of data in our ticketing platforms when paid in cryptocurrencies, we decided to shut down bitcoin payments for last minute sales due to print deadlines,” the organizers said.

“Hopefully, next year there will be more unity in the community about scaling and global adoption becomes reality.”

Rising transaction fees and lengthy processing times have been a big bone of contention in the crypto community in recent times and organizer Moe Levin told Bitcoin.com that they also made it difficult for the conference to accept digital currency.

According to Blockchain.info it currently takes more than 50 minutes to confirm a bitcoin transaction.

Trump to Hold Major Press Conference on Leaving Business to Focus on Presidency

“I will be holding a major news conference in New York City with my children on December 15 to discuss the fact that I will be leaving my great business in total in order to fully focus on running the country in order to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN! While I am not mandated to do this under the law, I feel it is visually important, as President, to in no way have a conflict of interest with my various businesses,” Trump wrote on his Twitter account.

“Hence, legal documents are being crafted which take me completely out of business operations. The Presidency is a far more important task,” he added.

Reporters: Trump’s media conference was a ‘f—ing firing squad’

Reporters: Trump’s media conference was a ‘f—ing firing squad’

Donald Trump scolded media big shots during an off-the-record Trump Tower sitdown on Monday, sources told The Post. “It was like a f−−−ing firing squad,” one source said of the encounter.

“Trump started with [CNN chief] Jeff Zucker and said, ‘I hate your network, everyone at CNN is a liar and you should be ashamed,’ ” the source said.

“The meeting was a total disaster. The TV execs and anchors went in there thinking they would be discussing the access they would get to the Trump administration, but instead they got a Trump-style dressing-down,” the source added.

A second source confirmed the fireworks. “The meeting took place in a big boardroom and there were about 30 or 40 people, including the big news anchors from all the networks,” the other source said.

“Trump kept saying, ‘We’re in a room of liars, the deceitful, dishonest media who got it all wrong.’ He addressed everyone in the room, calling the media dishonest, deceitful liars. He called out Jeff Zucker by name and said everyone at CNN was a liar, and CNN was [a] network of liars,” the source said.

No revelations at Assange Berlin conference

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange exploded the bubble of widely anticipated leaks for upending the US election at his videoconference in Berlin Tuesday, Oct. 4, leaving an atmosphere of high suspense.  He said: There’s an enormous expectation in the United States – part of that expectation will be answered… but we won’t do it at 3am.’  He went on to deny the intention of destroying Hillary Clinton as “false,” but he also promised to publish US election leaks very week over the next ten weeks and in the run-up to the November presidential election.
