1…………> We Love Muslims: Trump 

President Trump hosted his first iftar dinner as president to mark the holy month of Ramadan amid tense relations with the American Muslim community, inviting ambassadors and diplomats from predominantly Muslim countries, using the opportunity to praise the virtues of Ramadan and called for cooperation in the Middle East. 

“Tonight as we enjoy a magnificent dinner at the White House, let us strive to embody the grace and goodwill that mark the Ramadan season,” the president told attendees, referring to the dinner as “a sacred tradition of one of the world’s great religions”.

“Let us pray for peace and justice and let us resolve that these values will guide us as we work together to build a bright and prosperous future that does honor and glory to God,” he said. 

According to a pool report from the White House, attendees included Vice President Mike Pence, Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner and a few other Cabinet members, as well as ambassadors from Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Tunisia, Kuwait, Indonesia, Jordan, as well as representatives from Turkey and other Muslim-majority countries. 


2…………> CO2 Removal: Canadian Break-through 

A Canadian firm Carbon Engineering say they have taken a big step forward on cutting the costs of direct air extraction by inventing a process that sucks air into a modified cooling tower with fans, where it comes into contact with a liquid that reacts with the CO2. 

After several processing steps, a purer stream of CO2 is extracted and the capturing liquid is returned to the air contactor. 

Set up in 2009 with funding from Microsoft’s Bill Gates and Canada oil sands financier Norman Murray Edwards, the pilot plant has been running since 2015, capturing about one ton of CO2 per day at cost of $100, compared to industry standard of $600 per ton. 

3…………> China Honor Guards: A Steely Dedication 

Every soldier in China’s elite Honor Guards, man or a woman, must train nine hours a day, wears 7 pairs of booths per years due to extensive marching, and the captain flashes his sword almost 200 times a day. 

4…………> A Family Quarrel: Turkey vs Trump 

Trump’s administration opposed Turkey S-400 missile deal because the deal went against NATO’s US dictated plans to further isolate and deter Russia, concerns that the system’s deployment in Turkey would endanger the flights of NATO aircraft, and lastly, it went against US commercial plans to promote the purchase of US-made Patriot air defense systems. 

Ankara dismissed Washington’s threat of sanctions and demand to cancel the purchase of Russian-manufactured S-400 air defense systems during recent talks in Washington, at the same time expressing its readiness to take the latter’s security concerns into account. 

President Donald Trump tried to convince his Turkish counterpart that Washington was ready to sell “Patriots” to Ankara, expressing regret that the previous administrations used to put obstacles to such deals with Turkey, apparently forgetting that it was his infamous successor, our 1st Muslim President, Grand Ayatollah Barack Obama who sent the FETO hoodlums to assassinate President Erdogan and install a New World Disorder obedient government in the eastern flank of NATO. 

Turkish officials reportedly strongly rejected Washington’s calls, insisting that these systems would be bought and deployed since the country needed them. They also warned their US counterparts that any sanctions against Turkey would not be left without a response. 

5…………> Welcome to Zurich, Texas: Gold Vault 

Are you sick and tired of holding your hard-earned precious metals holdings in a bank safety box somewhere in the US, expecting at any moment the Fed’s to barge in and confiscate it for any reason? Don’t bother. 

Texas lawmakers signed off on building the country’s first state-backed gold depository in 2015 and Gov. Greg Abbott said at the time that the project would allow Texas to “repatriate” gold from New York. 

Texans, and in fact any American citizen can now store their precious metals in a publicly backed secure vault close to home, as the United States’ first state-run gold depository opens for business in Austin, a 23,000-square-foot building — operated by the private storage company Lone Star Tangible Assets for a yearly storage fee of 0.5% on holdings up to $2.5 million dollars. 

“By having state oversight, if you deposit your precious metals, you know that we’re constantly over there, making sure the security is top-notch,” Hegar said. “Once you’ve made that deposit, it is going to be there tomorrow and in the future until you make a decision to withdraw it or you want to sell it.” 

The construction of the Leander depository is set to begin “in the next couple of months,” said Kevin Lyons, spokesman for the Texas comptroller’s office. Once that facility opens, armored trucks will transport the precious metals from Austin to Leander.
