The US President tweeted: “Big day planned on NATIONAL SECURITY tomorrow. Among many other things, we will build the wall!” President Donald Trump will begin rolling out executive actions on immigration Wednesday, beginning with steps to build his proposed wall along the US-Mexico border, according to two administration officials. He’s also expected to target so-called sanctuary cities and is reviewing proposals that would restrict the flow of refugees to the United States.

The president is expected to sign the first actions — including the measure to jumpstart construction of the wall — Wednesday during a trip to the Department of Homeland Security. Additional actions will be rolled out over the next few days, according to one official.

Trump is said to still be weighing the details of plans to restrict refugees coming to the U.S. The current proposal includes at least a four-month halt on all refugee admissions, as well as temporary ban on people coming from some Muslim majority countries, according to a representative of a public policy organization that monitors refugee issues.

The person was briefed on the details of that proposed action by a government official and outlined the expected steps for The Associated Press. The officials and the public policy organization’s representative insisted on anonymity in order to outline the plans ahead of Trump’s official announcements.

5 Benefits Of Cucumber For Belly Fat

Weight loss, especially around the belly, can be a daunting challenge for many. Cucumber can be your friend in this battle by combating possible underlying causes like bloating, water retention, constipation. Thanks to its high water and fiber content, zero fat, and low caloric content. Try it out as a raw snack or juice with lemon, ginger, and aloe vera as added ingredients. It’s no secret that losing belly fat isn’t easy. But what if cucumbers could help? These refreshing veggies are low in calories, making them a stellar detox treatment. And since they’re exceptionally filling, they might be just what you need to reach your weight-loss goals. Who knew?

A “Spare Tire” Problem

Belly fat (“spare tire”) gets a lot of attention thanks to its potential health risks. It’s been linked to cardiovascular disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, and even cancer.1 Thankfully, losing those extra inches doesn’t mean you need to lose your mind, too. To understand how to combat tummy fat, you need to know what you’re dealing with. Sometimes, the bulge around the belly may just be bloating or water retention. This can happen because of constipation, food intolerance, overeating, bacterial irritation, or irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), among other things.2

Other times, that “tire” may be exactly what it looks like – excess weight or fat. It tends to accumulate with age, as the metabolic rate for both men and women declines over time. And since belly fat has a sensitivity to hormonal balance, it can be especially tricky to lose until the underlying problem is fixed. Plus, for women, the body typically holds onto belly fat after pregnancy and during menopause. Talk about complicated! The average American lifestyle doesn’t help, either. It’s full of processed foods and chronic nutritional overload, marked by eating too much. These factors overwhelm the body, eventually slowing down metabolism.3 It’s basically a recipe for belly fat.

Roast Just 6 Of These and In 1 Day Your Body Will Be Healed

roasted-garlic-1

Garlic is one of the most amazing foods on Earth! Garlic has tons of health benefits and makes food taste great! Eating 6 garlic cloves can heal your body in just 24 hours! Garlic is pretty much a super food!

Being a close cousin to the onion, you can’t be surprised when it comes to the benefits of garlic. Onions, Garlic, and chives are all in the Allium family. Allium is the primary ingredient in all of these powerful foods. Allium gives these foods powerful disease-fighting properties and makes them taste good as well.

Garlic medicinal properties have been taken advantage of for centuries! You can trace medicinal garlic all the way back to ancient Egyptian times! Other ancient civilizations used it too, including Babylonians, Greeks, Romans, and the Chinese.

The garlic comes in the form of a bulb. Each bulb contains about 10-20 cloves. You can eat just 6 cloves to heal your body in 24 hours. However, most remedies use little amounts of garlic such as half a clove. The compound in Garlic is called Allicin. Allicin enters the body through the digestive tract and travels all throughout the body.

This happens within the first hour of eating the garlic. In 2-4 hours, the compounds in garlic start to destroy cancer cells! The National Cancer Institute states: “Protective (cancer) effects from garlic may arise from its anti-bacterial properties, or from its ability to block the formation of cancer-causing substances, halt the activation of cancer-causing substances, enhance DNA repair, reduce cell proliferation, or induce cell death.

Donald Trump – the first president who had never held political office or high military rank – promised to stir a “new national pride” and protect America from the “ravages” of countries he says have stolen U.S. jobs. President Donald Trump’s inaugural speech promised “America first” policy, but offered no specifics about America’s place in the world.

The billionaire businessman and reality television star – the first president who had never held political office or high military rank – promised to stir a “new national pride” and protect America from the “ravages” of countries he says have stolen U.S. jobs. “This American carnage stops right here,” Trump declared. In a warning to the world, he said, “From this day forward, a new vision will govern our land. From this moment on, it’s going to be America first.”

A look at some reactions from around the world:

AFGHANS DISAPPOINTED BUT HOPEFUL

Like many in the Afghan capital of Kabul, restaurant owner Mohammad Nahim watched the presidential inauguration ceremonies but was disappointed to not hear any mention of Afghanistan. “Trump did not mention a word about Afghanistan in his speech and the salaries of the Afghan army and police are paid by the U.S.,” he said. He added that if the U.S. stops helping Afghanistan, “our country will again become a sanctuary to terrorists. I hope Trump will not forget Afghanistan.”

Donald Trump warns journalists, calls them most dishonest human beings

The US President said that the media falsely reported the number of people attending his inauguration ceremony. Describing journalists as the most dishonest human beings on Earth, US President Donald Trump has said he has been “running a war” with the media and warned them of consequences for falsely reporting that less number of people attended his inauguration. “We had a massive field of people. You saw them. Packed. I get up this morning, I turn on one of the networks, and they show an empty field,” Trump said.

“I say, wait a minute, I made a speech. I looked out, it looked like a million, million and a half people. They showed a field where there were practically nobody standing there. They (media) said, Donald Trump did not draw well. I said, it was almost raining, the rain should have scared them away, but God looked down and he said, we’re not going to let it rain on your speech,” he said. “Then I walked off and it poured right after I left. It poured. But, we have something that’s amazing because, it looked like a million and a half people. Whatever it was, it was. But it went all the way back to the Washington Monument. And I turn on — and by mistake I get this network, and it showed an empty field. And it said we drew 250,000 people,” he said.

“Now, that’s not bad, but it’s a lie. We had 250,000 people literally around in the little bowl that we constructed. That was 250,000 people. The rest of the 20-block area, all the way back to the Washington Monument, was packed. So we caught them, and we caught them in a beauty. I think they’re going to pay a big price,” Trump warned. Trump was speaking at the CIA headquarters. He told his top spy agency that this is the reason for him visiting the CIA headquarters as the media has portrayed that he has differences with the intelligence community.

“The reason you’re my first stop is that, as you know, I have a running war with the media. They are among the most dishonest human beings on Earth,” Trump said amidst applause and laughter from the CIA officials attending his maiden address to them. “They sort of made it sound like I had a feud with the intelligence community. And I just want to let you know, the reason you’re the number-one stop is exactly the opposite. They understand that, too,” he said and then said that the crown strength of his inauguration was being accurately being written by the media.

Then Trump listed out another incident. So a reporter wrote that Trump took down the bust, of Martin Luther King. “It was right there. But there was a cameraman that was in front of it. So a reporter writes a story about I took down. I would never do that because I have great respect for Martin Luther King. But this is how dishonest the media is,” Trump alleged.

“I only like to say that because I love honesty. I like honest reporting. I will tell you, final time — when you let in your thousands of other people that have been trying to come in — because I am coming back — we’re going to have to get you a larger room,” Trump said indicating that he would have a bigger room for the White House press corps.

Meanwhile, in an unusual sharply worded remark, that took the White House press corps by surprise, new White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer blasted the media for what he considered “inaccurate and unfair” press coverage over the past 48 hours. Prominent among these included tweets about a Martin Luther King bust in the Oval Office, and the crowd size coverage during presidential inauguration on Friday. “The president is committed to unifying the country and that was the focus of his inaugural address. This kind of dishonesty in the media, the challenge of bringing about our nation together is making it more difficult,” Spicer said.

“There’s been a lot of talk in the media about the responsibility to hold Donald Trump accountable.And I am here to tell you that it goes two ways. We are going to hold the press accountable as well,” said the new White House Press Secretary. Spicer, did not took any question but said he would hold his first news conference on Monday. In an open display of anger and frustration against the media Spicer alleged photographs of the inaugural proceedings were intentionally framed in a way in one particular tweet to minimize the enormous support that it gathered on the National Mall.

“This was the first time in our nation’s history that floor coverings had been used the protect the grass in the mall. That had the affect of highlighting any areas where people were not standing while in years past the grass eliminated this visual,” he charged.

Spicer said this was also the first time that fencing and magnetometers went as far back on the mall preventing hundreds of thousands of people from being able to access the mall as quickly as they had in inaugurations past.

“Inaccurate numbers involving crowd size were also tweeted. No one had numbers because the National Park Service which controls the National Mall does not put any out,” he asserted.

Spicer said this applies to any attempts to try to count the number of protesters today in the same fashion.

“We do know a few things so let’s go through the facts. We know that from the platform where the president was sworn in to 4th Street holds about 250,000 people. From 4th street to the media tent is about another 220,000. And from media tent to the Washington Monument another 250,000 people,” he said.

“All of this space was full when the president took the oath of office. We know that 420,000 people used the DC metro public transit yesterday which actually compares to 317,000 that used it for President Obama’s last inaugural,” he said.

Spicer said this was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration. “Period. Both in person and around the globe,” he added.

Way forward as Trump turns America inward

India must prepare for his buy-American-hire-American protectionism. In a powerful appeal to American nationalism and a clarion call to put “America First,” the new President of the United States Donald J Trump has promised to upend America’s long standing commitments to economic globalisation, open borders and expansive internationalism.

As Trump’s America turns inward and redefines its role in the world, India must limit the many negative consequences to its current economic engagement with the United States. At the same time, it must seize the new opportunities for strategic cooperation with Washington by shedding past inhibitions.

Affirming America’s protectionist turn, Trump said: “We will bring back our jobs. We will bring back our borders.”

In a dramatic twist to the prolonged war on terror, Trump has reaffirmed the commitment to work with Russia and other civilised nations to wipe “radical Islamic terror” from the face of earth.”

None of these themes was a surprise from Trump. Through his presidential campaign during 2016, Trump had pounded away on these issues. Given the profound and entrenched opposition in Washington to Trump’s unorthodox views, many had hoped that Trump will moderate and finesse his positions. In choosing not to walk back, Trump has set himself on the ambitious course to change America’s economic and political trajectory after the Second World War.

Trump’s new vision for America would demand some serious rethinking of the approach to the US in India at the political as well as policy level. For long, the Indian elites have either criticised the US for forcing globalisation down the throat of other peoples and of intervening in the name of promoting political values like democracy. They will now have to deal with Trump who will have none of this.

Trump has delivered a stinging criticism of globalisation and the much cherished American leadership of the global order. Trump declared, “we’ve enriched foreign industry, subsidised the armies of other countries, while allowing for the sad depletion of our military. We’ve defended other nation’s borders while refusing to defend our own.”

Unveiling a new vision that is bound to send a chill down the spine of many chancelleries around the world, Trump said from now on, “every decision on trade, taxes, on immigration, on foreign affairs will be made to benefit American workers.We must protect our borders from the ravages of other countries making our products, stealing our companies and destroying our jobs.”

Trump identified two simple rules for the new America: “buy American, hire American.”

India must not only prepare for a more protectionist America, but also prepare for a United States that does not plan to mess around with other people’s affairs or squander blood and treasure in the name of promoting democratic values. “We do not seek to impose our way of life on any one, but rather to let it shine as an example.”

During the campaign and since, Trump had trashed America’s old alliances like the NATO. Tonight he said, “we will reinforce old alliances and form new ones and unite the civilised world against radical Islamic terrorism, which we will eradicate from the face of the Earth.” This is an extraordinary formulation that promises to transform US approach to friends and partners around the world.

Trump is not defining himself here as the leader of the “free world” or the “West.” Instead he is talking of uniting “the civilised world” and it quite clearly includes Russia. Trump has always insisted that Russia can be a partner in the fight against against ISIS and other extremist groups.

For eight years, Obama did not use the term “international terrorism.” His preference was for “violent extremism.” That terminological change alone underlines the prospects for a dramatic shift in the way Trump’s America might think about the nature of most important threats and the partnerships that are needed to counter them.

By any measure, Trump’s speech tonight marks a bold and unambiguous repudiation of the long standing beliefs in the American establishment about the United States and its role in the world. His questioning of the costs of globalisation, open borders and an interventionist foreign policy has struck a chord with a large number of voters.

There is indeed an outside chance that Trump might be able to reinvent America’s international engagement and reorder its domestic politics. He has room indeed to build a bipartisan coalition on limiting free trade, modernising America’s infrastructure and on pursuing more modest foreign policy goals.

To be sure, Trump’s vision will face enormous resistance from the establishment. But then Trump has presented himself as an outsider ready to fight the establishment to make things work for the American people. This, in turn, sets the stage for a vigorous political contestation for America’s future direction in the next four years.

For outsiders, there is probably only one guidance to understanding Trump’s America: the past is not a good guide for the future.
