I have nothing to hide. I have done nothing wrong.”</p><p>Last month, Conway was cited by the U.S. Office of Special Counsel, the federal agency that oversees Hatch Act compliance, for multiple violations of the 1939 law that prohibits government employees from participating in political speech while performing their official duties. Conway was cited for speaking in her official capacity about both the 2020 election and 2017’s special Senate election in Alabama. </p><p>In an official OSC report, head Henry Kerner recommended Conway’s firing, a measure both Conway and Trump have categorically rejected. </p><p>In a letter to House Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings on Monday, White House counsel Pat Cipollone said Conway would be skipping the hearing. The Justice Department “has advised me that Ms. Conway is absolutely immune from compelled congressional testimony with respect to matters related to her service as a senior adviser” to Trump, he told the committee. </p><p>Conway echoed that explanation in her interview with Fox. </p><p>“The chairman knows and everyone knows there is a long-standing bipartisan precedent, both parties have invoked it, that you claim immunity for the president's senior advisers,” she argued, adding, “I obviously qualify as one.”</p><p>On Tuesday, Conway continued to insist she’d done nothing wrong, dismissing Kerner’s office as the “poor man’s Office of Special Counsel” being weaponized after former special counsel Robert Mueller — whose office is separate from Kerner’s — failed to bring her down. </p><p> “This is about me going on TV and stating facts,” she said. “Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders are old, they are white, they are male, they are career politicians. Joe Biden got elected to the Senate 49 years ago. That qualifies as a career politician.” </p><p>“I would love to go testify, but I'm taking one for the team here because there's long-standing tradition to claim immunity and not have people like me testify,” she claimed. </p><p>The rejection prompted Cummings to threaten to hold Conway in contempt of Congress if she did not honor the subpoena before July 25.</p><p>Conway is only the latest member of the Trump administration targeted by Democrats. The House is set to vote later this week to hold Attorney General William Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in contempt of Congress over a separate issue. </p><p>Cummings on Monday took issue with the White House’s assertion, calling the Conway matter “a clear-cut case.” </p><p>‘We are not requiring her to testify about advice she gave the president or about the White House’s policy decisions,” Cummings said during the hearing. “We are requiring her to testify before Congress about her multiple violations of federal law, her waste of taxpayer funds, and her actions that compromise public confidence in the integrity of the federal government.” <br /></p><br><p>Article originally published on <a href="http://www.politico.com/magazine/">POLITICO Magazine</a></p> coprysko@politico.com (Caitlin Oprysko) Trump says Turkey situation complex, is talking to Turkish officials https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-turkey-trump/trump-says-turkey-situation-complex-is-talking-to-turkish-officials-idUSKCN1UB27J?feedType=RSS&feedName=worldNews Reuters: International urn:uuid:d1373c2b-3cae-1a90-6502-e24d637796c8 Tue, 16 Jul 2019 13:26:52 -0400 U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday said the situation with Turkey is very complex and tough, and that he is talking to officials in Ankara.<div class="feedflare"> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/Reuters/worldNews?a=Nw5qfl1gzbg:8lYIVwtdh6Q:yIl2AUoC8zA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/Reuters/worldNews?d=yIl2AUoC8zA" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/Reuters/worldNews?a=Nw5qfl1gzbg:8lYIVwtdh6Q:F7zBnMyn0Lo"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/Reuters/worldNews?i=Nw5qfl1gzbg:8lYIVwtdh6Q:F7zBnMyn0Lo" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/Reuters/worldNews?a=Nw5qfl1gzbg:8lYIVwtdh6Q:V_sGLiPBpWU"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/Reuters/worldNews?i=Nw5qfl1gzbg:8lYIVwtdh6Q:V_sGLiPBpWU" border="0"></img></a> </div><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/Reuters/worldNews/~4/Nw5qfl1gzbg" height="1" width="1" alt=""/> worldNews Warren rips Defense secretary nominee over his Raytheon ties https://www.politico.com/story/2019/07/16/elizabeth-warren-defense-secretary-nominee-1594110 Top Stories urn:uuid:dc82e90f-9248-4856-b068-e7832a1dfa88 Tue, 16 Jul 2019 13:26:02 -0400 <img src="https://static.politico.com/1a/8f/6847790e4ecc84108193e3862dda/190716-elizabeth-warren-ap-773.jpg"/><br><p>Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Tuesday slammed President Donald Trump’s pick to be Defense secretary, Mark Esper, for his ties to defense contractor Raytheon.</p><p>In a heated exchange at a Senate Armed Services confirmation hearing, Warren — a Democratic presidential contender — criticized Esper for not committing to extend for his entire tenure at the Pentagon his recusal from issues involving Raytheon, where he worked as a top lobbyist.</p><p>Warren cited former acting Secretary Pat Shanahan, a former vice president with Boeing, who extended his recusal permanently amid questions about his ties to the aerospace company. She also pressed Esper to commit to never seek a waiver from his recusal and not seek defense industry employment for four years after leaving government, which he declined to do.</p><p>“Let me get this straight. You’re still due to get at least a million-dollar payout from when you lobbied for Raytheon. You won’t commit to recuse yourself,” Warren said. “You insist on being free to seek a waiver that would let you make decisions affecting Raytheon’s bottom line and your remaining financial interest. And you won’t rule out taking a trip right back through the revolving door on your way out of government service.”</p><p>“You can’t make those commitments to this committee, that means you should not be confirmed as secretary of defense,” the Massachusetts Democrat said.</p><p>The pair sparred over his ties to Raytheon during his 2017 confirmation hearing to be Army secretary. Warren was one of just six senators to vote against his confirmation then.</p><br><p>Esper, who is now being promoted to Defense secretary, jabbed back at Tuesday’s hearing, arguing he hadn’t sought a waiver and had abided by all his ethics obligations. And he pointed to former President Barack Obama’s selection of Bill Lynn, also a top lobbyist for Raytheon, as deputy secretary.</p><p>“I went to war for this country. I served overseas for this country. I’ve stepped down from jobs that paid me well more than [government],” Esper said. “And each time, it was to serve the public good and to serve the young men and women of our armed services.”</p><p>“I think the presumption is, for some reason, anybody who comes from the business or the corporate world is corrupt,” he said.</p><p>Warren telegraphed her tough line of questioning ahead of the hearing last week when she criticized Esper in a letter for not committing to extend his recusal, which expires in November. Warren called on him to extend his recusal for his entire tenure at the Pentagon and expand its scope.</p><p>She said Tuesday the possibility of Esper seeking a waiver “smacks of corruption, plain and simple.”</p><p>After a lengthy, and testy, exchange that ran over her allotted time, Senate Armed Services Chairman Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) gaveled Warren down.</p><p>“This is outrageous,” Warren said of Esper’s testimony.</p><p>A West Point graduate, Esper took over as acting Defense secretary in June when Shanahan stepped down amid questions about his personal life.</p><p>Esper would be the first Senate-confirmed Pentagon chief since Jim Mattis resigned in December. Inhofe said he aims to secure Esper's confirmation before the long August congressional recess. </p><p>Several of the panel’s Republicans came to the defense of Esper, who has maintained strong ties with both parties on Capitol Hill as Army secretary.</p><p>Inhofe apologized to Esper for the exchange.</p><p>“It was unfair and you handled it beautifully,” Inhofe said.</p><p>“I’m very disappointed that Senator Warren would demonize you after your decades of service simply because you served in the private sector,” added Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.). “I guess she just needed a moment for her presidential campaign.”</p><br><p>Article originally published on <a href="http://www.politico.com/magazine/">POLITICO Magazine</a></p> cobrien@politico.com (Connor O’Brien) ‘Chatgate’ scandal throws Puerto Rico’s governor into crisis https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/the_americas/chatgate-scandal-throws-puerto-rico-governor-into-crisis/2019/07/15/c627239a-a762-11e9-8733-48c87235f396_story.html World: World News, International News, Foreign Reporting - The Washington Post urn:uuid:de341f51-c788-119d-c8e5-cf5e0710f582 Tue, 16 Jul 2019 13:25:50 -0400 Profanity-laced online chat throws Puerto Rico’s governor into crisis Michael Weissenstein and Joel Colon | AP Bachelorette star sends contestant home after sex before marriage spat, feud spills into Twitter - Fox News https://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/bachelorette-hannah-luke-sex-twitter-instagram-home Google News - Top Stories urn:uuid:2fdd0af7-772a-2895-7fee-43414308d9a8 Tue, 16 Jul 2019 13:25:46 -0400 <ol><li><a href="https://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/bachelorette-hannah-luke-sex-twitter-instagram-home" target="_blank">Bachelorette star sends contestant home after sex before marriage spat, feud spills into Twitter</a>&nbsp;&nbsp;<font color="#6f6f6f">Fox News</font></li><li><a href="https://www.cnn.com/2019/07/16/entertainment/hannah-brown-bachelorette-sex/index.html" target="_blank">'The Bachelorette' sex argument people are talking about</a>&nbsp;&nbsp;<font color="#6f6f6f">CNN</font></li><li><a href="https://people.com/tv/hannah-brown-bachelorette-fantasy-suites-recap/" target="_blank">Bachelorette Hannah Finally Sends Luke Home After Argument About Sex: 'I Don’t Owe You Anything'</a>&nbsp;&nbsp;<font color="#6f6f6f">PEOPLE.com</font></li><li><a href="https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/apos-bachelorette-apos-hannah-brown-020249632.html" target="_blank">'Bachelorette' Hannah Brown Slays Luke Parker With Windmill Reveal: Everything She Said to Him</a>&nbsp;&nbsp;<font color="#6f6f6f">Yahoo Entertainment</font></li><li><a href="https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/2019/07/16/i-have-had-sex-jesus-still-loves-me-how-bachelorette-had-rare-moment-sex-positivity/" target="_blank">'I have had sex ... and Jesus still loves me': How 'The Bachelorette' had a rare moment of sex-positivity</a>&nbsp;&nbsp;<font color="#6f6f6f">The Washington Post</font></li><li><strong><a href="https://news.google.com/stories/CAAqOQgKIjNDQklTSURvSmMzUnZjbmt0TXpZd1NoTUtFUWp0ajk2SGpvQU1FV00wZzNlSXFLSkdLQUFQAQ?oc=5" target="_blank">View full coverage on Google News</a></strong></li></ol> Family members, demonstrators protest decision not to press federal charges in Eric Garner case https://video.foxnews.com/v/6059877560001/ Latest News urn:uuid:5beb2cc2-8dc5-4091-1ffe-5416ec87711f Tue, 16 Jul 2019 13:25:21 -0400 <img style="padding-right:3px;float:left;" src="https://a57.foxnews.com/media2.foxnews.com/BrightCove/694940094001/2019/07/16/121/68/694940094001_6059889606001_6059877560001-vs.jpg" alt="Family members, demonstrators protest decision not to press federal charges in Eric Garner case" /><p>Federal charges will not be filed against NYPD officer Daniel Pantaleo in Eric Garner's death; David Lee Miller reports from New York City,</p> Iran Willing to Talk with US if Trump Lifts Sanctions https://www.voanews.com/middle-east/iran-willing-talk-us-if-trump-lifts-sanctions Voice of America urn:uuid:3700ef1a-87b5-ad30-3b9a-76dc063f2012 Tue, 16 Jul 2019 13:25:07 -0400 Tehran has threatened to revert its nuclear program to pre-2015 levels <div>Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif says his country is willing to negotiate with the U.S., but only if it lifts harsh economic sanctions against the Islamic Republic.<br /><br /> The U.S. imposed sanctions on Iran in 2017 before withdrawing from a 2015 nuclear deal last year that requires Iran to slash its uranium enrichment in exchange for sanctions relief.  <br /><br /> "Once those sanctions are lifted ... the room for negotiation is wide open," Zarif said in an NBC News interview that aired Monday.<br /><br />  Zarif, who is in New York for meetings at the United Nations, said the U.S. abandoned a diplomatic approach when it pulled out of the deal.<br /><br /> Zarif accused the U.S. of further escalating Middle East tensions by selling billions of dollars of weapons to regional rivals Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, threatening his country's ballistic missile program.<br /><br /> "These are American weaponry that is going into our region, making our regional ready to explode," he said.

Britain, China, France, Germany, and Russia were the other signatories to the accord.<br /><br /> Iran has already withdrawn from parts of the agreement and threatens to back away even further unless the remaining countries help its sanctions-battered economy.  <br /><br /> Iran has already exceeded the size of the uranium stockpile permitted under the deal and increased the uranium enrichment level, although it is still nowhere near what is needed to build a nuclear weapon.<br /><br /> But Iran's foreign ministry said it would stay committed to the accord at the same level as the other signatories stay committed to it.<br /><br /> British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt said Monday the 2015 deal “isn't dead yet," and that while the opportunity to find a resolution to the current crisis surrounding the agreement is closing, it is still possible to keep it alive.</div> Tehran has threatened to revert its nuclear program to pre-2015 levels Fintechs are best at improving their finances https://www.ft.com/content/97736e1c-a7e6-11e9-984c-fac8325aaa04 FT.com - World urn:uuid:c69aa661-3d93-6727-4000-3a51626fa485 Tue, 16 Jul 2019 13:23:57 -0400 Google activist quits, Gaia’s Lovelock on AI at 100, Nobe’s three-wheel EV Powell says 'uncertainties' have increased chances of a rate cut - CNBC https://www.cnbc.com/2019/07/16/feds-powell-says-uncertainties-have-increased-chances-of-a-rate-cut.html Google News - Top Stories urn:uuid:bc58f17e-e329-36c6-c3f3-8937bc4e12e3 Tue, 16 Jul 2019 13:23:23 -0400 <ol><li><a href="https://www.cnbc.com/2019/07/16/feds-powell-says-uncertainties-have-increased-chances-of-a-rate-cut.html" target="_blank">Powell says 'uncertainties' have increased chances of a rate cut</a>&nbsp;&nbsp;<font color="#6f6f6f">CNBC</font></li><li><a href="https://www.marketwatch.com/story/rate-cut-with-stock-market-at-all-time-highs-its-been-done-before-2019-07-15" target="_blank">Rate cut with stock market at all-time highs?

Justice will not bring criminal civil rights charges against the police officer accused of killing Eric Garner, a Staten Island man whose death five years ago sparked nationwide outrage and helped fuel the Black Lives Matter movement.</p><p>The decision by prosecutors in Brooklyn means that Daniel Pantaleo will never face criminal prosecution for Garner’s death in an apparent chokehold.</p><p>Federal prosecutors broke the news to Garner’s devastated family in a meeting at the U.S. attorney’s office shortly before announcing their decision publicly.</p><p>“This is an outrage, an insult to injury. You killed my son,” Gwen Carr, Garner’s mother, said outside the U.S. attorney's office after meeting with officials . “Five years ago my son said, ‘I can’t breathe’ 11 times. And today we can’t breathe because they have let us down.”</p><p>Garner’s arrest, caught on video and quickly spread on social media, roiled New York City, spurred months of protest and launched his dying cry of “I can’t breathe” into a rallying call for activists fighting police brutality across the nation. The decision was announced a day before the five-year anniversary of Garner’s death, when the statute of limitation for certain charges expires.</p><p>Richard Donoghue, the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, said the Justice Department concluded there was not enough evidence to prove Pantaleo violated civil rights law, which would have required proving both that he used unreasonable force and that he willfully broke the law.</p><p>“Mr. Garner’s death was a terrible tragedy. But having thoroughly investigated the surrounding circumstances, the Department has concluded that the available evidence would not support federal civil rights charges against any officer,” he told reporters at his Brooklyn office. “We know and understand that some will be disappointed by this decision, but it is the conclusion that is compelled by the evidence and the law.”</p><p>A Staten Island grand jury declined in 2014 to bring local criminal charges against Pantaleo, but his family and supporters clung to the possibility that he might still face prosecution on federal charges.</p><p>“This man choked my father outside on the street, choked him with no remorse,” said Emerald Snipes, Garner’s daughter.</p><p>“Don’t apologize to me. Fire the officer,” she said. “Don’t give me your condolences. I heard that five years ago. We want justice and we want it today.”</p><p>The federal decision dragged out for years amid an apparent divide inside President Donald Trump’s Justice Department between prosecutors in the Civil Rights Division and top agency officials. Donoghue apologized for the delay Tuesday. “This should never have taken as long as it did,” he said.</p><p>Pantaleo was attempting to arrest Garner on suspicion of selling illegal cigarettes before the confrontation that was captured on video.</p><p>Prosecutors concluded that the officer did effectively apply a chokehold, and held Garner in it for about seven seconds, Donoghue said. Although the city medical examiner ruled the death a homicide caused by the chokehold, he said there was some doubt as to whether the maneuver killed him or whether his underlying medical conditions did.</p><p>Attorney General William Barr made the final decision not to bring charges himself, the U.S. attorney said. He said it was a “difficult” call to make.</p><p>Pantaleo, who has remained on the force but assigned to desk duty, faced a New York Police Department disciplinary trial that concluded last month, and the NYPD must now decide whether to fire him.</p><p>Mayor Bill de Blasio insisted for years that the city had to wait for the Justice Department to conclude its investigation before moving forward with the disciplinary case — but said Tuesday that was the wrong call.</p><p>“We put our faith in the federal government to act. We won’t make that mistake again,” he said.</p><p>Garner’s family and activists called on de Blasio to fire the officer at once.</p><p>Rev. Al Sharpton said the federal decision was a “moral disgrace and judicial malpractice,” and said the city must terminate Pantaleo immediately rather than giving him the chance to resign.</p><p>“Show you’re better than the Trump administration. Don’t let this man continue to be on the public payroll,” he said.</p><p>The federal decision will not affect the NYPD’s disciplinary process, said spokesperson Phil Walzak. Commissioner James O’Neill is awaiting a recommendation from the deputy commissioner of trials before making a final decision on Pantaleo’s fate, he said.</p><p>The Police Benevolent Association welcomed the decision not to charge the officer. </p><p>“Scapegoating a good and honorable officer, who was doing his job in the manner he was taught, will not heal the wounds this case has caused for our entire city,” said PBA president Pat Lynch.</p><br><p>Article originally published on <a href="http://www.politico.com/magazine/">POLITICO Magazine</a></p> Erin Durkin Two Russian boxers competed despite doping bans https://www.reuters.com/article/us-sport-doping-russia-boxing-exclusive/two-russian-boxers-competed-despite-doping-bans-idUSKCN1UB1TR?feedType=RSS&feedName=worldNews Reuters: International urn:uuid:342ed95f-6073-d3c2-9244-67550ac31c9c Tue, 16 Jul 2019 13:05:59 -0400 Two Russian boxers serving doping suspensions have competed while banned, Reuters has found, highlighting inconsistencies in Russia's efforts to reform its anti-doping practices.<div class="feedflare"> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/Reuters/worldNews?a=gTqqFxj1vyY:xyZXyPUhnRE:yIl2AUoC8zA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/Reuters/worldNews?d=yIl2AUoC8zA" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/Reuters/worldNews?a=gTqqFxj1vyY:xyZXyPUhnRE:F7zBnMyn0Lo"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/Reuters/worldNews?i=gTqqFxj1vyY:xyZXyPUhnRE:F7zBnMyn0Lo" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/Reuters/worldNews?a=gTqqFxj1vyY:xyZXyPUhnRE:V_sGLiPBpWU"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/Reuters/worldNews?i=gTqqFxj1vyY:xyZXyPUhnRE:V_sGLiPBpWU" border="0"></img></a> </div><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/Reuters/worldNews/~4/gTqqFxj1vyY" height="1" width="1" alt=""/> worldNews Judge considers whether to punish Roger Stone for social media posts https://www.cnn.com/2019/07/16/politics/roger-stone-social-media-posts/index.html CNN.com urn:uuid:b22e00b1-678b-048f-efb2-2a0b4d788b5e Tue, 16 Jul 2019 13:05:06 -0400 A federal judge Tuesday is considering whether to punish Roger Stone for social media posts and whether they are in violation of a strict gag order she imposed on him.<div class="feedflare"> <a href="http://rss.cnn.com/~ff/rss/cnn_topstories?a=u_skLreZa4c:27G6LykmTBs:yIl2AUoC8zA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/rss/cnn_topstories?d=yIl2AUoC8zA" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://rss.cnn.com/~ff/rss/cnn_topstories?a=u_skLreZa4c:27G6LykmTBs:7Q72WNTAKBA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/rss/cnn_topstories?d=7Q72WNTAKBA" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://rss.cnn.com/~ff/rss/cnn_topstories?a=u_skLreZa4c:27G6LykmTBs:V_sGLiPBpWU"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/rss/cnn_topstories?i=u_skLreZa4c:27G6LykmTBs:V_sGLiPBpWU" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://rss.cnn.com/~ff/rss/cnn_topstories?a=u_skLreZa4c:27G6LykmTBs:qj6IDK7rITs"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/rss/cnn_topstories?d=qj6IDK7rITs" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://rss.cnn.com/~ff/rss/cnn_topstories?a=u_skLreZa4c:27G6LykmTBs:gIN9vFwOqvQ"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/rss/cnn_topstories?i=u_skLreZa4c:27G6LykmTBs:gIN9vFwOqvQ" border="0"></img></a> </div><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/rss/cnn_topstories/~4/u_skLreZa4c" height="1" width="1" alt=""/> Israeli minister accuses UK's Corbyn of Jew-hatred https://www.reuters.com/article/us-britain-politics-labour-israel/israeli-minister-accuses-uks-corbyn-of-jew-hatred-idUSKCN1UB260?feedType=RSS&feedName=worldNews Reuters: International urn:uuid:dbaefa6d-0c9f-4ec3-507b-25d0d2114be0 Tue, 16 Jul 2019 13:04:45 -0400 An Israeli official close to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accused British Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn of Jew-hatred on Tuesday, remarks likely to fuel acrimony in and around the opposition party as it struggles with anti-Semitism probes.<div class="feedflare"> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/Reuters/worldNews?a=f4Ort3am5vY:PruUS_MMDto:yIl2AUoC8zA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/Reuters/worldNews?d=yIl2AUoC8zA" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/Reuters/worldNews?a=f4Ort3am5vY:PruUS_MMDto:F7zBnMyn0Lo"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/Reuters/worldNews?i=f4Ort3am5vY:PruUS_MMDto:F7zBnMyn0Lo" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/Reuters/worldNews?a=f4Ort3am5vY:PruUS_MMDto:V_sGLiPBpWU"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/Reuters/worldNews?i=f4Ort3am5vY:PruUS_MMDto:V_sGLiPBpWU" border="0"></img></a> </div><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/Reuters/worldNews/~4/f4Ort3am5vY" height="1" width="1" alt=""/> worldNews Alligator in Chicago’s Humboldt Park Lagoon caught overnight -

Al Green (D-Texas) will seek Trump’s immediate impeachment or simply the launch of an inquiry. But he has promised to force a floor vote on the matter before the House departs for its August recess — either before or after special counsel Robert Mueller’s hotly-anticipated testimony on July 24.</p> <p> Many of the Democrats backing impeachment proceedings have viewed Mueller’s appearance on Capitol Hill as a potential inflection point that could jumpstart their efforts. Green’s decision could undermine their plans, forcing lawmakers to take a position they may not have been prepared to take.</p> <p> “It won’t be [productive], but it’s his right to do it,” said Rep. Jared Huffman (D-Calif.), who supports an impeachment inquiry and said he would ultimately vote for Green’s measure if it hit the floor. “I don’t expect this to actually be the mechanism that starts an impeachment inquiry.”</p> <p> More than 80 House Democrats support launching a formal impeachment inquiry, and lawmakers expect that number to grow after Mueller testifies before the Judiciary and Intelligence committees.</p> <p> But Speaker Nancy Pelosi still opposes an impeachment inquiry, arguing that it’s too politically divisive and would never lead to conviction and removal in a Republican-controlled Senate.</p> <br><p> Green’s vote might also undercut momentum for the impeachment effort after it almost certainly fails on the floor, with a majority of Democrats likely to join all Republicans in opposition.</p> <p> Like other pro-impeachment Democrats, Huffman has grown exasperated with the glacial pace of the House’s various investigations, subpoena fights and court battles, as the Trump administration continues to resist those probes and stonewall requests for documents and testimony.</p> <p> “I share the frustration that [Green] and other members have,” Huffman added. “Things are moving far too slowly. There’s not enough tangible accountability for this president at this point. So I can’t fault anyone for being extremely frustrated right now.”</p> <p> Green indicated on Tuesday that he is dead-set on forcing a vote on impeachment before lawmakers leave Washington for the month-long August recess, saying in an interview that efforts to dissuade him would be “fruitless.”</p> <p> “When you’re doing the right thing, you understand there may be those who are critical,” Green said. “But Dr. King reminds us that there are times that you have to do that which is neither safe nor politic nor popular. You do them because they are right.”</p> <p> Green has previously forced two impeachment votes, but not since Democrats seized the House majority last year.</p> <p> The language of Green’s impeachment resolutions have focused on Trump’s racially charged rhetoric, rather than the obstruction of justice allegations against the president as outlined in Mueller’s report on Russian interference in the 2016 election.</p> <p> Green said he was renewing his push because of Trump’s racist tweets over the weekend, in which he told four progressive Democratic women of color to “go back” to their countries of origin. The House is voting later Tuesday on a <a href="https://www.politico.com/story/2019/07/16/house-democrats-trump-resolution-1416782" target="_blank">resolution</a> to formally condemn Trump’s comments, which have drawn rebukes from few Republicans.</p> <p> “A racist, bigoted president should not occupy the White House in the United States of America,” Green said.</p> <p> Other Democrats who support impeachment proceedings expressed concern on Tuesday that Green’s effort would circumvent the Judiciary Committee, which has the power to launch a formal inquiry.</p> <p> “It is my hope that if there’s going to be an opening of impeachment that it’s initiated by the committee of jurisdiction,” said Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.), who sits on the Judiciary panel.</p> <p> It’s unclear whether Pelosi will try to thwart Green’s effort. The Texas Democrat plans to use a procedural mechanism that allows him to subvert leadership, which usually controls what measures come to the floor.</p> <p> But Democratic leaders are treading carefully and appear resigned to Green’s intent to push ahead on his own terms.</p> <p> “I’m not going to try to discourage him,” House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) said. “He has to do what he thinks is right.”</p><p><i>Sarah Ferris contributed to this report.</i><br /></p> <br><p>Article originally published on <a href="http://www.politico.com/magazine/">POLITICO Magazine</a></p> Andrew

Special counsel Robert Mueller indicted Stone in January for lying to Congress, obstruction and witness tampering. His trial is expected to begin in November.</p><p>Specifically, Jackson told Stone he may no longer use Instagram, Twitter or Facebook to comment not just on his case but also on any other topic — political or apolitical.</p><p>During a contentious Tuesday hearing, she addressed about a dozen social media posts and other comments Stone has made dating back to February that government prosecutor Jonathan Kravis in court argued &quot;clearly violate&quot; the gag order.</p><p>“What am I supposed to do with you?” Jackson asked Stone after ruling he had repeatedly broken her prohibition that he shouldn't be commenting about the case at all. She likened his situation as “more to do with middle school than a court of law.”</p><p>While Kravis refrained from recommending Jackson find Stone in criminal or civil contempt over the gag order violations — which could have involved fines or jail time — he did suggest a complete social media ban. And after taking an hour-long recess, Jackson said she agreed with the government that a contempt hearing was “not a good use of the court’s resources” and she was “not inclined to revoke bond at this time.”</p><p>Jackson criticized Stone for trying to gin up publicity in his case with his social media posts. </p><p>“It seems he's determined to make himself the subject of the story,” she said. And she challenged the longtime GOP operative for offering explanations about his commentary that required his lawyer “to twist himself into a pretzel.”</p><br><p>The judge, an appointee of President Barack Obama, initially allowed Stone the ability to talk about his case so long as he didn’t comment in the vicinity of the Washington, D.C., courtroom where he’s scheduled to go on trial. But she added new limits in February after Stone delivered a courtroom apology for posing a photo of what looked like gun-sight crosshairs above a picture of the judge.</p><p>Tuesday’s updated restrictions, Jackson said, will cover Stone’s use of all the major social media networks, though Twitter already banned him in October 2017 for a series of expletive-laden posts about CNN. Stone is also under a previous gag order talking about his case that still stands.</p><p>During the hearing, Jackson handed copies of Stone’s posts to his lawyer, Bruce Rogow, who then conferred with Stone before offering arguments for why they did not violate the gag order. Notably, Rogow didn't dispute that Stone had posted any of the messages. </p><p>But his answers parsed whether they had crossed any lines.</p><p>Regarding a message Stone sent to Buzzfeed offering a comment about the validity of testimony that former Trump attorney Michael Cohen had just delivered to Congress, Rogow argued the remarks had nothing to do with Stone's own case.</p><p>Rogow said that another Stone post — with the words &quot;Who framed Roger Stone?&quot; — was &quot;simply a comment on his situation that he's in court, that he's subject to some action in court.&quot;</p><p>Jackson also read aloud a Stone Instagram post from May, in which he took issue with a POLITICO story about her decision to see unredacted portions of Mueller's final report.

Also on the agenda is a French push for fairer levies benefiting poorer countries.</p><p>The G-7 finance meeting is being held in the town of Chantilly — home to a historic chateau and France's famous whipped cream. But the talks among representatives from some of the world's richest nations target more weighty issues. Among them: U.S.-China trade war, fears of an economic slowdown and controversial plans by Facebook to launch a virtual currency called Libra. Potentially dominating the agenda is new and controversial French legislation to tax multinational tech giants like Google and Amazon. The UK has drafted a similar proposal.</p><p>The Trump administration has launched a probe into the French legislation, which could lead to retaliatory tariffs. Washington claims the bill unfairly targets American companies. France says it will repeal the tax once the nations reach agreement on a global digital tax plan.</p><p>French Economy Minister Bruno Le Maire said threats are not the right way for allies to resolve differences, noting France makes its taxing decisions as a sovereign nation. The Chantilly meeting, he said, can be an opportunity to find common ground.</p><p>The finance meeting also will address rising inequality, a priority of France's G-7 presidency this year that covers areas like health, education, jobs and climate change. On the finance side, Paris wants the group to discuss ways to build a fairer international tax system.</p><p>Quentin Parrinello, tax justice officer for Oxfam France, says tax evasions by large multinational corporations costs developing countries an estimated $100 billion a year.</p><p>"We are at a turning point right now, because the options on the table can be transformative," he said. "France is being very good at big statements, but what Oxfam is expecting from France is turning words into action."</p><p>The finance ministers' meeting is the last big G-7 gathering before next month's summit in the southwestern French town of Biarritz.</p> Potentially dominating the agenda is new and controversial French legislation to tax multinational tech giants like Google and Amazon House GOP defends Trump's racist tweets https://www.cnn.com/politics/live-news/trump-racist-tweet-immigration-july-2019/h_733eb0dea854b198e786f23ecd4d4b33 CNN.com urn:uuid:51063c18-051e-734b-91b6-64cd59685587 Tue, 16 Jul 2019 12:16:35 -0400 <div class="feedflare"> <a href="http://rss.cnn.com/~ff/rss/cnn_topstories?a=fde6_9JyIVY:pFImHSXg5qU:yIl2AUoC8zA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/rss/cnn_topstories?d=yIl2AUoC8zA" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://rss.cnn.com/~ff/rss/cnn_topstories?a=fde6_9JyIVY:pFImHSXg5qU:7Q72WNTAKBA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/rss/cnn_topstories?d=7Q72WNTAKBA" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://rss.cnn.com/~ff/rss/cnn_topstories?a=fde6_9JyIVY:pFImHSXg5qU:V_sGLiPBpWU"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/rss/cnn_topstories?i=fde6_9JyIVY:pFImHSXg5qU:V_sGLiPBpWU" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://rss.cnn.com/~ff/rss/cnn_topstories?a=fde6_9JyIVY:pFImHSXg5qU:qj6IDK7rITs"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/rss/cnn_topstories?d=qj6IDK7rITs" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://rss.cnn.com/~ff/rss/cnn_topstories?a=fde6_9JyIVY:pFImHSXg5qU:gIN9vFwOqvQ"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/rss/cnn_topstories?i=fde6_9JyIVY:pFImHSXg5qU:gIN9vFwOqvQ" border="0"></img></a> </div><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/rss/cnn_topstories/~4/fde6_9JyIVY" height="1" width="1" alt=""/> Facebook's Libra cryptocurrency stirs criticism, privacy concerns https://www.dw.com/en/facebook-s-libra-cryptocurrency-stirs-criticism-privacy-concerns/a-49612233?maca=en-rss-en-top-1022-rdf Deutsche Welle: DW-WORLD.DE - Top Stories urn:uuid:5a68e795-e0b1-0d9c-753e-b4451de9c1e2 Tue, 16 Jul 2019 12:16:00 -0400 US lawmakers have grilled Facebook on its ambitious plan to create a financial ecosystem based on a digital currency called Libra.

Johnson was the <a href="https://www.politicshome.com/news/uk/politics/opinion-polls/news/105113/boris-johnson-set-landslide-victory-he-overwhelms-jeremy" target="_blank">clear favorite</a> among the Conservative Party members who will decide the contest when the starting gun was fired last month, and remains ahead coming out of the race.<br /> <div class="article-video ad_brightcove_video right-rail-adjacent"><div id="ad_brightcove" class="ad_brightcove_video-wrapper"></div></div></p> <p>By the end of Monday evening, the pair were joking with the audience, and one another. &ldquo;I don&rsquo;t think [the debate] changed very much from what we already knew,&rdquo; Johnson told TIME moments after the event.</p> <p>But while the leadership contest appears to be a foregone conclusion, its final weeks have been bruising for Johnson. Newspapers scrutinizing his past as a journalist and author have unearthed examples of <a href="https://time.com/5627270/boris-johnson-islam-muslim-world/" >past Islamophobic comments.</a> They haven&#8217;t had to look far; in 2018, he likened Muslim women who wear the full-face veil to &ldquo;bank robbers&rdquo; and &ldquo;letterboxes,&rdquo; comments that prompted the Muslim Council of Britain to accuse him of pandering to the far-right. On Monday, the <em>Guardian</em> published excerpts from a 2006 book in which he had written that Islam &ldquo;inherently inhibits the path to progress and freedom.&rdquo;</p> <p>And when, on Monday evening, Johnson was quizzed over a column in which he referred to gay men as &#8220;tank-topped bumboys,&#8221; he dismissed concerns over his past remarks. &#8220;If you&#8217;re going to excavate and disinter every single quotation from the millions of words I have written, you can of course try to twist things one way or the other,&#8221; he said.</p> <p>That explanation might placate the roughly 124,000 Conservative Party members who have a vote in the ongoing leadership contest, but the wider public are yet to be convinced he is the right man for this job. In a May <a href="https://yougov.co.uk/topics/politics/articles-reports/2019/05/24/mays-resignation-has-sparked-long-awaited-tory-lea" target="_blank">poll</a> by YouGov, just 28% of U.K. adults surveyed said he would make a good Prime Minister, compared to 54% who said he would do badly.</p> <p>That should be a cause for concern even if he does become leader. His ruling Conservative party has a parliamentary majority of just three votes, which could shrink even further if lawmakers abandon ship over his approach to Brexit. If that ends up forcing a general election later this year, Johnson would have to convince the entire electorate to put their trust in him as a leader.</p> <p>So far, the contest to be Britain&#8217;s next Prime Minister has been fought on what appeals to Conservative party members, rather than the public as a whole. When Johnson eventually does go to the country, his past comments may come back to haunt him once again.</p> <img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/time/world/~4/GF1ZzMaGrqk" height="1" width="1" alt=""/> Uncategorized United Kingdom Billy Perrigo Conservative Leadership Race Is Down To Final Two Christine Lagarde, IMF managing director, resigns in advance of ECB post https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2019/jul/16/imf-managing-director-lagarde-resigns-in-advance-o/?utm_source=RSS_Feed&utm_medium=RSS stories: World urn:uuid:b0524b43-a634-3174-4c8d-0b805da7ece5 Tue, 16 Jul 2019 12:14:22 -0400 <p>WASHINGTON (AP) &mdash; Christine Lagarde is resigning as managing director of the International Monetary Fund in light of her nomination to be the next president of the European Central Bank.</p> <p>Lagarde has already given up her day-to-day duties as head of the IMF, and the international lending agency has named ...

The person was not authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity.</p><p>Garner was black, Pantaleo is white. Garner's words “I can't breathe” became a rallying cry for police reform activists, coming amid a stretch of other deaths of black men at the hands of white officers. Protests erupted around the country erupted, and police reform became a national discussion.</p><p>Some lawmakers and activists decried the decision.</p><p>“The Garner family has suffered too much. This decision pains me,” said Sen. Bernie Sanders, a Vermont independent running for president as a Democrat. “It is not just, and we will not have real justice for black Americans until there is serious reform of our racist criminal justice system.”</p><p>Officers were attempting to arrest Garner on charges he sold loose, untaxed cigarettes outside a Staten Island convenience store.

When Garner resisted, asking officers not to touch him, they restrained him. Garner died after police put him in an apparent chokehold, which the NYPD has banned.</p><p>The federal government had until Wednesday to file charges against Daniel Pantaleo, the officer accused of killing Garner, and any of the other New York City police officers involved in the arrest. The statute of limitations on the case expires July 17, the five-year anniversary of his death.</p><p>Prosecutors said there wasn’t enough information to pursue the case. They were scheduled to meet with Garner’s family Tuesday morning, including his mother, Gwen Carr, and widow, Esaw Snipes. The family received a $5.9 million settlement from New York City in 2015.</p><p>Though Garner’s death was ruled a homicide, a Staten Island grand jury declined to indict Pantaleo on criminal charges in 2014. A federal investigation, fraught with infighting, is ongoing, but hasn’t released any updates.</p><p>Results have not been released for an administrative trial of Pantaleo that ended last month. The penalties in that case range from Pantaleo losing vacation days to being terminated. Though Pantaleo was stripped of his badge and gun after Garner’s death, he has remained on desk duty.</p><p><strong>Activists respond</strong></p><p>“This city and country must feel the power of black organizers,” read a Facebook post by Black Lives Matter of Greater New York, which hosted a rally Monday in front of the Department of Justice headquarters in Washington Monday, in support of Garner. The statement echoed Chairman Hawk Newsome, who said at the rally that the group would “shut down New York City” if the DOJ declined to charge Pantaleo.</p><p>Activists online decried the DOJ’s response, which was widely expected. At Monday’s rally, they denounced an insensitive media cycle and opportunist politicians for disregarding Garner, as well as other black men killed by police.</p><p>“Where are the elected officials? The people we voted in office that we voted in office to represent us?” asked Nupol Kiazolu, the organization’s 19-year-old president.</p><p>She called out Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar, both freshman Democratic Congresswomen, as well as presidential candidates Senator Kamala Harris and former Vice President Joe Biden.</p><p>“All these people that are running for president of the United States, that are pandering for black votes right now, where the hell are you?” Kiazolu asked.</p><p><strong>Video goes viral</strong></p><p>A video of Garner, with Pantaleo’s arm around his neck and three other officers holding him down, went viral. His death sparked waves of protests against police brutality, his last words plastered across T-shirts and strewn through news articles.</p><p>“Since [the video], Eric has died a million times over. America has watched Eric Garner die a million times over,” said Newsome.</p><p>Prosecutors in the administrative trial argued that Pantaleo’s alleged chokehold, which the NYPD has banned completely since the 1990s, killed Garner. A lack of oxygen triggered an asthma attack, which caused the cardiac arrest that killed him, the medical examiner who performed Garner’s autopsy said.</p><p>The defense said Pantaleo was actually attempting a “seatbelt” hold, which puts an officer’s arms around the subject’s torso and shoulder. Defense lawyer Stuart London said that what killed Garner instead was his own poor health, which included obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes and asthma.</p><p><strong>Black men killed</strong></p><p>Police killings of black men and boys have been a flashpoint in police-community relations for years.</p><p>A <em>Washington Post</em><a href="https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/2019/national/police-shootings-2019/?utm_term=.d672c588f824">database</a> reports 102 black people have been shot and killed by police in 2019, out of 487 total cases.</p><p>Eric Logan, 54, of South Bend, Indiana, was <a href="https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/2020-election/eric-logan-shooting-stirs-anger-over-racial-injustice-pete-buttigieg-n1021711">killed</a> in late June, prompting presidential candidate and Mayor Pete Buttigieg to take time away from the campaign trail to hold a local town hall to listen to community members.</p><p>Sgt.

He says they are struggling after the destruction of their ancestral lands by Islamic State militants and the growing encroachment by Shi'ite militias linked to Iran, on their towns.<br />  <br /> Patriarch Louis Sako’s Chaldean Catholic Church represents about two-thirds of Iraq’s Christian community. The once-thriving community was found throughout the country and numbered around 2 million before the 2003 U.S.-led invasion.  But it has dwindled dramatically over the past decade to about 200,000, decimated by sectarian violence and driven out of its ancestral homeland of the past 14 centuries by Islamic State, also known as ISIS.<br />  <br /> Louis Sako is not optimistic about the future.<br />  <br /> “The ideology of ISIS is so strong, even among simple people because of the speech in the mosques," he said. "This is bad, it’s against human nature and religion. Fundamentalism is the biggest challenge today.  The Iraqi government is not so strong, maybe another edition of ISIS will come out.”</p><figure role="group" class="embedded-entity div"><div><figure class="media media--type-image media--view-mode-" itemscope="" itemtype="http://schema.org/ImageObject"><a data-size="3996x2883" href="https://media.voltron.voanews.com/Drupal/01live-166/styles/sourced/s3/2019-07/ap_chaldeans.jpg?itok=psWayyAQ"><div><img alt="Iraqi Catholics pray during Mass at Mar Youssif Chaldean church, in Baghdad, Iraq, Dec. 25, 2018." height="2883" layout="responsive" src="https://media.voltron.voanews.com/Drupal/01live-166/styles/sourced/s3/2019-07/ap_chaldeans.jpg?itok=psWayyAQ" width="3996" /></div></a></figure></div><figcaption>FILE - Iraqi Catholics pray during Mass at Mar Youssif Chaldean church, in Baghdad, Iraq, Dec. 25, 2018.</figcaption></figure><p> The U.S. government, the Catholic Church and aid groups have helped rebuild portions of Christian and Yazidi towns overrun and destroyed by IS militants in the Ninevah Plain and Sinjar, but Louis Sako says much more reconstruction is needed to encourage former occupants to return.</p><p>“Many houses have been restored but many houses have been burnt, destroyed totally. We need money to rebuild them, and churches. We have as Chaldeans more than 15 churches in Mosul destroyed totally. All churches from the 5th up to the 10th century are no more. Who will rebuild them?”</p><p>Another challenge is the Shi'ite militias, linked to Iran, which helped to liberate Christian and Yazidi areas once under IS control. Louis Sako pointed to the growth of Shi'ite militia influence and presence in towns that were predominately, if not entirely, Christian before the IS invasion in 2014 as another worrying problem.</p><p>“There is a strategy for changing the demography of the Ninevah Plain. Now the militias are looking to have a headquarters in Bartella, which was totally Christian," he said. "Also, on the border of Syria, Yazidi Sinjar, many Christians and Yazidis were forced to leave their houses, and are now living in Europe, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, and Turkey. They need money to survive, so they are selling their houses. The militias have money because they are supported by their parties, and certain countries, so they are buying [up property].”</p><figure role="group" class="embedded-entity div"><div><figure class="media media--type-image media--view-mode-" itemscope="" itemtype="http://schema.org/ImageObject"><a data-size="5760x3840" href="https://media.voltron.voanews.com/Drupal/01live-166/styles/sourced/s3/2019-07/ap_iraq_church_destroyed.jpg?itok=RVLvgM1X"><div><img alt="Remnants of an altar are seen in a Catholic church that was gutted by Islamic State militants, in Hamdaniya, Iraq, Dec. 5, 2016.

Here's a look at it:</p><p><strong>A royal history</strong></p><p>The farm officially started in 1579, when Emperor Rudolf II of the House of Habsburg gave an imperial status to an original stud established by his father, Emperor Maximilian II. The famed regular visitors to the site, which also has a small chateau and a church, included Emperor Franz Joseph I and his wife Elisabeth of Bavaria.</p><p>The stud farm survived wars and a devastating 18th-century fire until the end of the Austro-Hungarian Empire in 1918, when the newly established Czechoslovak state took over. That threatened its existence, since anything linked to the former empire was unpopular in Czechoslovakia. Yet somehow the horse breeding tradition weathered both that shift and 40 later years of communist rule.</p><p>In 2015, the whole site underwent a major renovation with European Union funds.</p><p><strong>Making the UNESCO list</strong></p><p>The Kladruby site occupies 1,310 hectares (3,240 acres), about the same size since the 16th century. Located on flat, sandy land near the Elbe River, it contains fields and forests along with its classic stables, indoor and outdoor training grounds and a symmetrical network of roads.</p><p>UNESCO describes it as “one of Europe's leading horse-breeding institutions, developed at a time when horses played vital roles in transport, agriculture, military support and aristocratic representation.”</p><p>Kladruby director Jiri Machek said UNESCO's recognition is the confirmation of “the global uniqueness of this place.”</p><p>”There are three unique aspects about it,” Machek told The Associated Press. “It's not only about a tangible heritage, it is also the breeding of unique Kladruber horses, which means the landscape still serves its original purpose. And the third, unique thing — which is not mentioned so often _ is the intangible heritage, the traditional way of doing things, that is we have been trying to operate the stud in a traditional way.”</p><p><strong>One of the world's oldest horse breeds</strong></p><p>Kladruby is the home of the Kladruber horse, a rare breed that is one of the oldest in the world with a population of only 1,200.</p><p>Kladrubers were bred to serve as ceremonial carriage horses at the Habsburg courts in Vienna and Prague. A warm-blooded breed based on Spanish and Italian horses, a convex head with a Roman nose is among their significant features.</p><p>Since the late 18th century, the Kladrubers have come in two colors, grey and black. The grey ones were used for royal ceremonies while the black ones served high-ranked clergy.  </p><p>Today, they still do the same at the Danish court, while others are used by the trumpeters from the Swedish Royal Mounted Guard. Some carry police officers in the Czech Republic and the Netherlands.</p><p>The breed's peaceful nature also makes them a popular riding horse among private owners around the globe, and some compete in international carriage driving events.</p><p><strong>If you go:</strong> Kladruby is easily accessible by car or bus. You can choose from four different guided tours with prices up to 7 euros ($7.90). Three take 45 minutes, one is 30 minutes. Discounts for children, students, retirees and families.  </p><p>Groups and tours in foreign languages (English, German) have to be booked in advance at: pruvodci@nhkladruby.cz. For individual visits, use the electronic booking system. The farm is open Tuesday to Sunday in April, May, September and October and seven days a week in June, July and August.</p><p>More information at https://www.nhkladruby.cz/en including a 3D tour.</p> The farm, UNESCO's first, officially started in 1579, is home to the Kladruber horse, a rare breed that is one of the oldest in the world
