The bipartisan debt-limit deal, brokered between the White House and House Republican leadership, is progressing. The House Rules Committee has voted 7-6 to advance the bill towards a full House vote on Wednesday evening. #DebtLimit #USCongress Image
However, the deal did not go unopposed. All Democrats on the committee voted against the advance. Two conservative Republicans, Reps. Chip Roy of Texas and Ralph Norman of South Carolina, also opposed. Both are members of the House Freedom Caucus, which has criticized the…… Image
The pressure is high as Congress races to pass the deal to suspend the debt ceiling before June 5. If not, the US could default on its obligations. Leaders from both parties face opposition from members critical of the concessions made in the compromise. #DebtCeiling…… Image

@JeffPrescott46 @USAmbUN @POTUS Okay, we’ve heard the words. But, where’s the action? NB: if #Russia had been excluded from #UNSC at start of #UkraineWar we wouldn’t have to put any thought or effort into fighting #Russia’s continued efforts to pervert Security Council’s actions via a disinformation campaign.
@JeffPrescott46 @USAmbUN @POTUS Instead, if at least #Russia had immediately been stripped of its veto powers, @USAmbUN could have put her efforts FAR MORE POSITIVELY into assuring #USA, #France & the #UK are made to stand-by & enforce their commitments made to #Ukraine in 1994 in the #BudapestMemorandum !
@JeffPrescott46 @USAmbUN @POTUS You might not see it from where you stand but it’s already quite obvious to rest of us that the actions of #Putin and in fact far more positively & profoundly of @ZelenskyyUa & his People have irreversibly altered the up to now current #WorldOrder.

Indeed! @ZelenskyyUa has not forgotten the #BudapestMemorandum and the tragically deadly cost its mere non-legally binding memorandum nature is now levying against his country and his citizens.
@POTUS @BorisJohnson @EmmanuelMacron @OlafScholz @vonderleyen @eucopresident @jensstoltenberg A new and legally binding international agreement is required that defines and defends any status #Ukraine manages to negotiate for itself with #Putin
and states clearly what each signatory will do and what they will do together should Russia or any other neighbouring countries ever attack again. Having let #Ukraine renounce its nuclear weapons whilst at the same time not having guaranteed its physical safety

Tuesday is #Russia! A leap in the dark: #Baerbock will meet Zelensky on Monday & Lavrov on Tuesday. Baerbock will attempt to revive the #Normandy during her visit. Baerbock would represent not only #German but also the #European position.
#Mythread 1/1…
#USCongress - no mandatory sanctions against #NordStream2. #FriedrichMerz, not that he has too much power, #CDU chairman, said that the exclusion of #Russia from the Swift payment system would constitute a nuclear bomb for capital markets. Let's see if #Scholz will agree 1/2
Let's be honest! Some hypocrisy here switching to the need for a common #European answer. The deal btw #Merkel and #Biden says that #NordStream2 cannot be opened if #Putin were using the pipeline for geopolitical purpose. An invasion of #Ukraine is trigger of that clause.1/2

Para tener un poco de contexto: el #TPS está cancelado, la última extensión vence en octubre 2021. El rol del embajador León en los 90 y las gestiones del gob. de #ElSalvador ,de entonces, lograron que el #USCongress estableciera este beneficio migratorio para los #Salvadoreños
Las extensiones hechas para los salvadoreños entre los 90 y 2017 dependieron de la gestión y el lobby de los gob. y los embajadores de #ElSalvador Desde 2016 esta gestión las realizan en gran medida los mismos tepesianos agrupados en la @TPS_Alliance
Cuando 2017 la Administración #Trump canceló el programa, el gob. de #ElSalvador dirigido por Bukele y representado por la canciller Hill en #USA aceptaron el término del programa con una pequeña extensión, a cambio de firmar acuerdos de agenda anti inmigrante

At a time the #USCongress is vigorously debating another #fiscal rescue package to support households and businesses into year end, it’s vital to think hard about the intersection between #Fed monetary policy/fiscal support and what it means for #markets: Image
In fact, the #CovidCrisis forced an evolution in policy coordination, whereby for the first time since WWII, U.S. policymakers married monetary and fiscal policy, with the #Fed and @USTreasury working together to inject cash from the #Fed’s #QE programs into the private sector…
That has been game changing for #liquidity near-term and should continue to help combat the #economic fallout from the #pandemic.

Kurdish Human right activist & The secretary-general of the Future Syria Party,Ms #Hervin_Khalaf ,has been raped & then stoned to death by #Turkey backed Jihadists near #Hasakah during Turkey's ethnic cleansing operation against #Kurds in Syria. @brett_mcgurk #amnesty
@brett_mcgurk "This happened almost precisely 3 years ago:Kurdish forces raised the US flag in Tal Abyad, while US soldiers were threatened by Turkish-backed rebels.

The President
could learn something about honour & loyalty from these fine men & women"
via @MsJulieLenarz
@brett_mcgurk @realDonaldTrump @MsJulieLenarz On Fox News:
No nation will ever have a reason to trust America or turn to US for support since they are abandoning the Kurds. Kurds done hard fight against ISIS but now they feel betrayed. US government will bury human rights if they have a deal with Islamic Republic dictators.
