Кейт Миддлтон стала любимым членом королевской семьи у жителей Британии


Это сделало Кейт Миддлтон самым популярным членом королевской семьи в глазах общественности. Изменение в предпочтениях британцев стало заметным, поскольку ранее лидерство в этом рейтинге долгое время удерживал принц Уильям.

Принц Уильям, муж Кейт Миддлтон, оказался на втором месте в опросе, получив поддержку 62% участников. В то же время принц Гарри и герцогиня Меган Маркл значительно отстали от лидеров. Только 29% опрошенных признали Гарри «положительным», а за Меган проголосовали 28% респондентов. Самым нелюбимым членом королевской семьи в данном опросе стал принц Эндрю, на которого положительно отнеслись всего лишь 14% участников.

Популярность Кейт Миддлтон среди британцев, по мнению издания, может быть связана с откровениями о ее борьбе с раком. Принцесса открыла публике о своем заболевании месяц назад, что вызвало волну сочувствия и поддержки со стороны общественности.

Также стоит отметить мнение астролога Дебби Фрэнк, который назвал принца Луи, младшего сына Кейт и Уильяма, самым сложным ребенком в королевской семье. По словам специалиста, игривость и дерзость Луи прописаны в его гороскопе, что создает определенные трудности в его отношениях с матерью. Луи, родившийся под знаком Тельца, не всегда соответствует стереотипам этого знака и склонен к эксцентричному поведению, что вызывает раздражение у дисциплинированной Кейт Миддлтон.

Предпочтения британцев в отношении членов королевской семьи могут меняться под воздействием различных факторов, включая личные качества и события из жизни роялей. В то же время астрологические аспекты также могут играть свою роль в сложности взаимоотношений внутри семьи.

Israel Moves to Kick Out Al Jazeera, Calling Qatari News Network an ‘Incitement Machine’


ISRAEL-MEDIA-JAZEERA

TEL AVIV, Israel — Israel ordered the local offices of Qatar’s Al Jazeera satellite news network to close Sunday, escalating a long-running feud between the broadcaster and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s hard-line government as Doha-mediated cease-fire negotiations with Hamas hang in the balance.

The extraordinary order, which includes confiscating broadcast equipment, preventing the broadcast of the channel’s reports and blocking its websites, is believed to be the first time Israel has ever shuttered a foreign news outlet operating in the country.

[time-brightcove not-tgx=”true”]

Al Jazeera went off Israel’s main cable and satellite providers in the hours after the order. However, its website and multiple online streaming links still operated Sunday.

The network has reported the Israeli-Hamas war nonstop since the militants’ initial cross-border attack Oct. 7 and has maintained 24-hour coverage in the Gaza Strip amid Israel’s grinding ground offensive that has killed and wounded members of its staff. While including on-the-ground reporting of the war’s casualties, its Arabic arm often publishes verbatim video statements from Hamas and other regional militant groups.

“Al Jazeera reporters harmed Israel’s security and incited against soldiers,” Netanyahu said in a statement. “It’s time to remove the Hamas mouthpiece from our country.”

Al Jazeera issued a statement vowing it will “pursue all available legal channels through international legal institutions in its quest to protect both its rights and journalists, as well as the public’s right to information.”

“Israel’s ongoing suppression of the free press, seen as an effort to conceal its actions in the Gaza Strip, stands in contravention of international and humanitarian law,” the network said. “Israel’s direct targeting and killing of journalists, arrests, intimidation and threats will not deter Al Jazeera.”

The Israeli government has taken action against individual reporters over the decades since its founding in 1948, but broadly allows for a rambunctious media scene that includes foreign bureaus from around the world, even from Arab nations. It also blocked the foreign broadcasts of the Hezbollah-affiliated, Beirut-based Al Mayadeen news channel at the start of the war.

A law passed last month allows the government to take action against Al Jazeera, Netanyahu’s office said.

Israeli Communication Minister Shlomo Karhi later published footage online of authorities raiding a hotel room Al Jazeera had been broadcasting from in east Jerusalem, which the Palestinians hope to one day have for their future state. He said officials seized some of the channel’s equipment there.

“We finally are able to stop Al Jazeera’s well-oiled incitement machine that harms the security of the country,” Karhi said. His office said it would bar Al Jazeera from operating in Israel for at least 45 days, a measure that can be renewed.

The ban did not appear to affect the channel’s operations in the occupied West Bank or Gaza Strip, where Israel wields control but which are not sovereign Israeli territory.

The decision threatens to heighten tensions with Qatar at a time when the Doha government is playing a key role in mediation efforts to halt the war in Gaza, along with Egypt and the United States.

Qatar has had strained ties with Netanyahu in particular since he made comments suggesting that Qatar is not exerting enough pressure on Hamas to prompt it to relent in its terms for a truce deal. Qatar hosts Hamas leaders in exile in Doha.

The sides appear to be close to striking a deal, but multiple previous rounds of talks have ended with no agreement.

In a statement Sunday, Hamas condemned the Israeli government order, calling on international organizations to take measures against Israel.

The Foreign Press Association in Israel criticized the order.

“With this decision, Israel joins a dubious club of authoritarian governments to ban the station,” it said. “This is a dark day for the media.” The New York-based Committee to Project Journalists similarly warned the move represented an “extremely alarming precedent for restricting international media outlets working in Israel.”

Omar Shakir, Human Rights Watch’s Israel and Palestine director, criticized the Israeli order as “an assault on freedom of the press.”

“Rather than trying to silence reporting on its atrocities in Gaza, the Israeli government should stop committing them,” he added.

Israel has long had a rocky relationship with Al Jazeera, accusing it of bias. Relations took a major downturn nearly two years ago when Al Jazeera correspondent Shireen Abu Akleh was killed during an Israeli military raid in the occupied West Bank.

Those relations further deteriorated following the outbreak of Israel’s war against Hamas on Oct. 7, when the militant group carried out a cross-border attack in southern Israel that killed 1,200 people and took 250 others hostage. Since then, the Israeli military campaign in Gaza has killed over 34,000 people, according to local health officials there, who don’t break figures down into civilians and combatants.

Israeli media largely has avoided the plight of those in the Gaza Strip, instead focusing on the Oct. 7 attack, the hostages held there and tales of Israeli military heroism.

Meanwhile in December, an Israeli strike killed an Al Jazeera cameraman as he reported on the war in southern Gaza. The channel’s bureau chief in Gaza, Wael Dahdouh, was wounded in the same attack. Dahdouh, a correspondent well-known to Palestinians during many wars, later evacuated Gaza but only after Israeli strikes killed his wife, three of his children and a grandson.

Al Jazeera is one of the few international media outlets to remain in Gaza throughout the war, broadcasting bloody scenes of airstrikes and overcrowded hospitals and accusing Israel of massacres.

Criticism of the channel is not new, however. The U.S. government singled out the broadcaster during America’s occupation of Iraq after its 2003 invasion toppled dictator Saddam Hussein and for airing videos of the late al-Qaida chief Osama bin Laden.

Al Jazeera has been closed or blocked by other Mideast governments.

Most notably in 2013, Egyptian authorities raided a luxury hotel used by Al Jazeera as an operating base after the military takeover that followed mass protests against President Mohammed Morsi. Three Al Jazeera staff members received 10-year prison sentences, but were released in 2015 following widespread international criticism.

Israel raids the offices of Al Jazeera after ordering it to cease operations


Israel raids the offices of Al Jazeera after ordering the local offices of Qatar’s satellite news network to close Sunday. We talk to Professor Joseph Russomanno from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication journalism at Arizona State University. The latest round of Gaza cease-fire talks ended in Cairo after “in-depth and serious discussions,” the Hamas militant group said Sunday, reiterating key demands that Israel again rejected. Earlier signs of progress dimmed as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed to resist international pressure to halt the war.

This weekend a top attorney for the Republican National Committee resigned over what Trump is trying to do to the RNC. This isn’t just a one off of course. Rick Wilson coined the phrase “Everything Trump Touches Dies” for a reason. Now Marc Elias, the election attorney who keeps defeating the RNC, is pointing out a remarkable pattern:

.


In March the RNC hired three new lawyers. At the time I wrote: “If history is a guide, they will end up ethically and perhaps legally compromised.”

Let’s check in on them.

Christina Bobb – Indicted for election fraud.
Charlie Spies – Forced out by team Trump.
Bill McGinley – ?

That right, two out of the three of them have already taken a fall. And let’s not forget that Christina Bobb isn’t just an RNC lawyer, she’s also a longtime Donald Trump lawyer. Now she’s set to go on criminal trial to determine whether she goes to prison.

Taylor Greene vows to advance effort to oust Speaker Mike Johnson


(NewsNation) — Despite her own party members calling it a waste of time, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene plans to move ahead with her effort to oust House Speaker Mike Johnson.

The Georgia Republican filed her “motion to vacate” a month ago and said she intends to bring it to the House floor on Monday.

“It’s a horrible idea,” Sen. Roger Marshall, R-Kan., told The Hill. “Moses could not do a better job than what Mike Johnson is doing right now.”

Virginia Republican Bob Good agrees. “She’s not acting in the best interests of President Trump,” he told The Hill on Sunday. “I don’t think this is a good move six months before an election. She’s always been about herself primarily.”

Johnson, himself, has dismissed Greene’s effort, saying he does not consider her a serious lawmaker.

“I don’t think she is proving to be. No. I don’t spend a lot of time thinking about her. I gotta do my job. We do the right thing and we let the chips fall where they may,” Johnson said.

Adding to Greene’s challenge: only two fellow House Republicans have said they’ll back her move. And the Democratic leader, Hakeem Jeffries, said he’ll help kill the motion.

“The time has come to turn the page on this chapter of Pro-Putin Republican obstruction,” Jeffries said earlier this month. “House Democrats have aggressively pushed back against MAGA extremism. We will continue to do just that,” he added.

Greene has blasted Johnson’s cooperation with Democrats to pass a spending bill and the trio of supplemental foreign aid bills benefiting Israel, Taiwan and Ukraine. She also opposed the reauthorization of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

Greene’s move is allowed thanks to a rule change that lets a single member raise a “privileged motion.” Before that, a House member had to have the backing of their party or caucus to file a motion to vacate. Then-Speaker Kevin McCarthy agreed to the change to win the votes needed to become Speaker.

On the days that Donald Trump’s trial is taking place, I put on MSNBC and CNN in the background on mute in case they happen to break news about the trial before any of the courtroom reporters are able post it online.

While MSNBC was on this past week, I noticed a chyron claiming that Trump’s poll numbers were improving since the trial had started. So I chuckled, looked up the polling averages, and confirmed that it wasn’t true. Cable news isn’t always lying, but they’re somehow always lying about the polls.

The funny part is that back in the real world, two major new polls — one from ABC and one from NPR – show President Biden having opened a four to five point lead since Trump’s trial started.


. . .



Most polls still show a much closer contest, and yes, some polls still show Trump ahead. And no, polls don’t win elections, campaign volunteers like you do. But it’s nonetheless hilarious that as Trump’s poll numbers are getting worse as a result of his trial, cable news wants us to believe the opposite is happening, in order to generate suspense. But in reality, anyone can look these numbers up. They just seem to be counting on you being too paralyzed from staring at your screen to bother looking them up.
