Trump vows to help Charlie Gard, the terminally ill infant at center of British legal battle

President Trump and the Vatican have spoken in support of Charlie Gard, a British baby ended whose case attracted worldwide attention after European courts have decided that he could be removed from life support against the wishes of his parents.

Francisco said on Twitter that “they defend human life, especially when it is harmed by disease, it is a duty of love that God gives to all.”

Italian news agency ANSA reported on Monday that officials of an Italian hospital belonging to the Vatican asking their counterparts from Great Ormond Street Hospital in London Charlie is 10 months old can be transferred from Rome to Rome.
Helen Aguirre Ferré, director of media affairs at the White House on Monday, said that “learning” Charlie’s case, the president “has offered to help the family in this heartbreaking situation.”

It is not at all clear how the United States government could help. During a harrowing legal struggle in Europe, Charlie’s parents argued that there was no experimental treatment in the United States they had not tried.

However, the courts decided that the therapy would not help and extend the treatment that Charlie would probably cause more harm to the child.
Trump did not speak directly to the family, said Aguirre Ferré, but administration officials have given in to the British government.

“The president trying to be useful, if possible,” he said.

As for the possible treatment in Rome, the president of the Bambino Gesù hospital, Mariella Enoc, said on Monday: “We know it is a lost case and there are no effective therapies.” According to ANSA, Enoc added: “We are close relatives and prayer, if it is your desire, ready to carry your child during the time he has left of life.”

Vatican spokesman Greg Burke, who responded to the pope’s remarks with the hashtag #CharlieGard, said in a statement that Francis had called Charlie’s parents to deal with him until his death.

“The Holy Father follows with affection and emotion the case of little Charlie Gard and expresses his closeness to his parents,” the statement said, according to Vatican Radio. “For them, pray, hoping that their desire to support and care for their own child in the end is not overlooked.”

D.C. federal appeals court blocks Environmental Protection Agency’s effort to suspend Obama-era methane pollution rule

D.C. federal appeals court blocks Environmental Protection Agency’s effort to suspend Obama-era methane pollution rule

WASHINGTON – A federal appeals court in Washington ruled Monday that the head of the Environmental Protection Agency exceeded its authority by trying to delay implementation of a new rule requiring oil and gas companies to control and reduce methane leaks .

In a split decision – the first major legal defeat for Scott Pruitt, the EPA Administrator – the three-judge court of the US District Court Circuit Court of the United States ordered the Environment Agency to proceed with the A requirement of the Obama era, which aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from oil and gas operations.

The decision indicates that President Donald Trump’s plans to erase the environmental record of his predecessor will have to face a tough battle in court.

M. Pruitt announced in April that it would delay for 90 days the deadline for oil and gas companies to follow the new rule for the agency to reconsider the measure.

The American Petroleum Institute, the Texas Oil and Gas Association and other industry groups had asked Mr. Pruitt to remove the requirement, which was due to come into force in June.

Last month, M. Pruitt announced his intention to extend the 90-day stay for two years. A coalition of six environmental groups opposed the delay in court, prompting appeals judges to block Mr Pruitt’s decision.

In a recent interview with The Washington Post, M. Pruitt said, “The fact that you anticipate a delay in implementation or compliance no longer necessarily means that you are going to reverse or redirect the rule.”

In a detailed decision of 31 pages that could jeopardize the comprehensive legal strategy Trump administration to trace the rules of the Obama era, the court did not agree with the assertion of M. Pruitt that the industry groups had not had enough Opportunity to comment before the adoption of the 2016 standard.

The judges also said that Mr. Pruitt lacked the legal authority under the Clean Air Act to prevent the rule from coming into effect with the “unreasonable” “arbitrary” and “capricious” decision.

“The EPA’s stay, in other words, is essentially an order to delay the effective date of the standard, this court held that these orders equivalent to modify or revoke a rule,” said Judges David Tatel and Robert Wilkins. They rejected the “degradation” of the claim that regulated EPA entities did not have the opportunity to comment “on an aspect of the standard that limits methane and pollutants to form smoke emitted by oil and gas sinks.

The third member of the three-judge panel, Janice Rogers Brown, disagreed.

The Monday decision does not mean that the rule imposing the first federal limits on methane leaks can not be reversed. But for this, the judges said that the agency should initiate a new regulatory process to cancel the regulation and respect the state of the meantime was Obama.

Forty-one states have refused Kobach's request for voter information

Forty-one states have refused Kobach’s request for voter information

Washington, DC (CNN) Forty-one states have questioned the Trump administration’s request for private voter information, according to a 50-state CNN poll.

State leaders and polling stations across the country responded to the letter with varying degrees of cooperation – to totally reject the request to express readiness to provide public information.

Secretary of State Kris Kobach, the vice president of the Presidential Advisory Commission for Integrity of Elections that President Donald Trump created by executive order in May, sent a letter to all 50 states on Wednesday asking for a multitude of election data That the notes were made available to the public.

The order came months after Trump has stated without evidence that millions had voted illegally during the 2016 presidential election when states began expressing concerns about the legality of their administration’s efforts to investigate fraud voters, Trump has Called Saturday on Twitter in question if they were hiding something.

The information requested by the Committee includes the full names of registrants, addresses, dates of birth, political parties, the last four digits of their Social Security number, a list of elections voted since 2006, information on Serious convictions, information about them being registered to vote in other states, their military status and whether they lived abroad.

The letter from the vice president twice only asks for “public” publicity information and Kobach clarified the details of his application Friday: “Each state receives the same letter, but do not ask if he is not available the public,” said the star of Kansas City.

But the commission, chaired by Vice President Mike Pence, did not seem to understand the laws that protect voter rights across the country. Each state that answered said they could not provide Social Security numbers, for example. Others said they considered information such as birth dates and party affiliations were private.

On the other hand, Kobach asked the States to provide information through an online portal. Many states have rejected this specific request, noting that the Commission must submit a request for information to voters through established state websites, as any other party would.

On Monday afternoon, three states – Florida, Idaho and Nebraska – still review the commission’s request. Three other states – Hawaii, New Jersey and Wyoming – did not return CNN’s request for comment.

And while seven states are still waiting for a letter from the Commission, four of them – New Mexico, Michigan, South Carolina and West Virginia – have already vowed not to provide private voter information.

Only three states – Colorado, Missouri and Tennessee – have welcomed Kobach’s attempt to investigate electoral fraud in their respective states.

“We are happy to request information before making decisions,” said Colorado Secretary of State Wayne Williams, a Republican. “I hope other federal agencies are asking people for their input and information before making decisions.”

Chris Christie flew close to the sun. Now, he sits under it, defiantly.

Chris Christie flew close to the sun. Now, he sits under it, defiantly.

Legend of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie in National Republican politics was forged on New Jersey’s coast, where recordings that were candy cottons were hoisted for the Republican base and for journalists.

“Get off the beach!” Christie barked in 2011, when Hurricane Irene is rapidly approaching the coast. A year later, while holding an ice cream cone, he met a person who interrupts Seaside Heights as a result of a conservative fiscal policy that plagued activists and donors.

But these electric days now seem like the old days for long Christie watchers. Its prominent profile simply stems from years of defeats and humiliations – punctuated this week by aerial imagery of one sitting on an isolated stretch of sand, flowing in a new cable loop.

Sporting flexible sandals and a baseball cap, Christie broke worry-free loose in the sun with his family at a beach house property in the middle of a statewide closure of government where he opened these beaches to the public.

The scene – captured in photographs from the air by the state’s largest newspaper, the Newark Star-Ledger – revealed elevated indifferent new challenge and hindered Christie’s political career.

This attitude led him to fame and the outside – and in the inner circle of President Trump, then aboard.

For those familiar with Christie – who is the country’s most unpopular governor, according to surveys – pictures of him among the dunes on Beach Island State Park were a reflection of what he always was: a flawed address that delights downtown Attention and deliberately ignore decorum.

“That tells me nothing I’ve known for a long time. He’s a paternal, a tyrant, and his nature is to fight, to fight, to fight,” New Jersey Sen. Richard J. Codey, a Democrat, said on Monday. Interim governor from 2004 to 2006. “I get along well with all former governors, but not with him.”
Former Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele said Christie was “Trump Trump before.”

“From the moment I met him at our first meeting in 2009 at the press conference on Monday, he was someone who is incredibly comfortable in his skin. He does what he wants to do and his success can be attributed to him,” said Steele . “But there are consequences, of course, when you work this way.”
Similar stories of his fanfare are Legion. Christie was used to take a helicopter from the 55-foot-long state police and his son’s baseball games.

He was invited to give the opening speech of the Republican National Convention in 2012, but has only a few words from the party’s spokesman, Mitt Romney. The Christie flavor for luxury travel was funded by foreign leaders and casino mogul. And his passing by the owner of the booth clapping his beloved Dallas Cowboys sparked a wave of ethical questions.

But Christie was not humiliated by his dwindling support or tends to maintain a lower profile in recent months. Instead, he was also dismissive and as firm as ever.

“He got the 15% approval rate, so he gives a giant middle finger to the people of New Jersey, sitting on this beach,” said Bob Ingle, a Christie biographer, in reference to the latest polls. “He’s so stubborn, so thin and he blames everyone but himself for what happened.”

North Korea tests missile it claims can reach 'anywhere in the world'

North Korea tests missile it claims can reach ‘anywhere in the world’

North Korea tests missile it claims can reach ‘anywhere in the world’

(CNN) North Korea claims to have conducted its first successful test of a long-range missile, which can “reach anywhere in the world.”

The missile test Tuesday morning, conducted under the orders of country leader Kim Jong Un, has reached a height of 2802 kilometers (1741 miles), according to state broadcaster, Korean Central Television (KCTV) ).

It is the highest altitude ever reached by a missile from North Korea, and lead the United States to believe that Pyongyang could potentially hit the Americas.

The regime appears to have scheduled the launch for the possible political effect, give the order to shoot on the eve of the July 4 party, a few days after US President Donald Trump spoke with the leaders of Japan and China to the threat Of North Korea and ahead of the G-20 meeting this week.

The fear is that North Korea could one day develop the technology to mount a miniature nuclear warhead on a long-range missile, which analysts believe they have already achieved.

What is the demand?
Euan Graham, director of the international security program at the Lowy Institute in Sydney, said that a seemingly successful test does not necessarily mean that North Korea had claimed global capability.

“If the North Koreans say they can launch an intercontinental ballistic missile anywhere in the world to be considered from a technical perspective,” he said, using the acronym for intercontinental ballistic missile.

“A successful test does not transmit on the bar, they say more than they can offer at this time.”

The most successful test
The missile, called the Hwasong-14 on state-owned television, flew into the waters east of the Korean peninsula and may have landed in Japan’s exclusive economic zone, which stretches 200 nautical miles off its coast, according to one Japanese defense official.

The United States Pacific Command said the missile continued for 37 minutes and described it as a “mid-range ballistic missile land.” Japan indicated that its flight time was 40 minutes.

It was launched from Panghyon in North Pyongan province and traveled more than 930 kilometers (578 miles) according to the South Korean army – More than one missile launch on May 14 that analysts have called try the most successful .

This launch reached a height of about 2,100 km (1300 miles).

Bruce Bennett, RAND Corporation’s principal / international defense investigator, said North Korea had tried to limit the distance and avoid an international incident.

“You can not fire a missile in North Korea, which has a range of one thousand kilometers without being in the exclusive economic zone of someone. In the end, they flew to the same one that can test the scope of the missile If they were going to shoot in A normal trajectory, will probably leave 6000 km. By definition, all that refers to more than 5 500 km is an intercontinental ballistic missile, “he said.

This is the North Korean missile test of 11 of this year and only grows the frustration Trump by the lack of advances in the fight against the programs of ballistic missiles and ballistic of Pyongyang.

Shortly after the launch, but before North Korea has announced its unprecedented height, said the United States president on Twitter.

“North Korea has launched another missile. Is this guy got anything better to do with his life?” He asked, referring to Kim.

“It is difficult to believe that South Korea and Japan to put in place much longer. Maybe China, will make a big step in North Korea and this absurd, once and for all!”

ICJ order diplomatic victory for India but Kulbhushan Jadhav’s life still under threat in Pakistan

ICJ order diplomatic victory for India but Kulbhushan Jadhav’s life still under threat in Pakistan

Relief and diplomatic victory are great ways for India’s interim order of an international court on Thursday’s ban on Pakistan to execute an alleged Indian spy until the verdict is reached.
In addition, it is likely to strengthen the position of the Narendra Modi government that will do everything possible to secure the release of former Indian Navy officer Kulbhushan Jadhav the intervention of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) The Hague.
The 46-year-old man was arrested in Balochistan in March 2016 and a Pakistani military court convicted of espionage and sabotage in April. India has warned that it would be considered premeditated murder if Pakistan was to be an innocent man.
“The ICJ order was a great relief to the Kulbhushan Jadhav family and the people of India,” Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj said. India marked the diplomatic point against its rivals, but the danger to life Jadhav has not diminished, while Pakistan could reject the order of the court of the UN.
Pakistan remained defiant and is likely to challenge the ICC’s national security competence.
“As for Pakistan, the decision not to change the status of the Jadhav case in any way,” said the country’s attorney general.
Jadhav was sentenced to death for “espionage and terrorism” and has enough time to “ask for clemency”. “We are determined to insist on this matter to its logical end,” he said.
There is a fear that Pakistan may suspend Jadhav before the ICJ pronounces its verdict, although Indian Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesman Gopal Baglay said the international court order was “legally binding.”
“The order of the ICJ is clear and unequivocal positive,” he said.

NIA launches probe against Hurriyat leaders for receiving money from Pakistan

NIA launches probe against Hurriyat leaders for receiving money from Pakistan

Key Kashmir separatists are likely to be under investigation for allegedly receiving funds from Pakistan to foment violence in the Jammu and Kashmir region.
The National Research Agency (NIA) will meet to be questioned Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Naeem Khan, Javed Gazi Baba and Farooq Ahmed Dar alias Bitta Karate – four leading Hurriyat leaders he named in a preliminary investigation (PE).
PE is a precursor to a FIR (First Information Report), the first stage of an investigation.
The four people suspected of having received funds to pay people who committed violent protests and fires in the valley, where more than a hundred civilians have died since July last year.
“We suspect the money was distributed in the valley for various violent activities such as rock gliding and schools and government buildings of the torch,” said a high NIA, insisting on being identified because it was not authorised to speak about it.
Money, officials believe NIA, was moved by hawala – a system of money transfer across borders, which is banned in India. It is believed that the payment comes from the militant group Lashkar-e Tayyeba (LET) and strangers in Pakistan.
The NIA also check the allegations in an attack operation against some Hurriyat leaders led by the Indian news channel. The channel broadcast footage showing separatist seen talking to receiving money from Hafiz Saeed, the head of LeT and other Pakistani individuals.
“We issued an opinion on the information chain to provide memory devices and cameras used in the covert operation to check the content,” said the official.
The EP contends that the hawala route used to send money to Pakistan to sit agents in the Ballimaran and Chandni Chowk area in Old Delhi before being taken to the valley.
Violence in the Kashmir valley peaked after the assassination of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani in July.
Kashmir is sought as a territory of Pakistan, a conflict that sparked the last war that the two nuclear powers have fought in 1999.
