Dear America,


I am writing to you to tell you that we need to put politics aside for once.All America has been the last decade or so is so politically motivated.People do not care for one another's opinions or beliefs but their own there are few of those people in America that do.This past election has raised issues across the country.Not only has the president been decided but Americas fate has been too.See we are so divided with one another that we forget about the upcoming generation who we as adults and elders influence their beliefs.I have seen this affect in many households around me.Part of my family is liberal while the other is Conservative which affects my views on politics.My family’s friends in which I have visited often their children the future of this country are taking in their parents beliefs.Although this is not true for most families as we all have that one child whose views on politics are completely different from everyone else's.But I am not a particular party as I have claimed to be republican to please my family. Although I may have “Conservative” views on politics I also have “liberal” thinking as well.See i have always gone with the flow of our country’s politics whether its a Democrat or a Republican sitting in the beloved Oval Office.Everyone seems to think the President has this magical power to make everything happen when in reality he has none at all;the real power lies within congress which for years has been clashing over stupid party politics.It’s time our country sees the writing on the wall as the fall of “The Great American Democracy” falls.It will fall due to the vast majority of Americans being divided against each other fighting over part politics our Founding fathers warned us about what having two political parties would do to our democracy and the people of the United States take it from John Adams who said “There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution.”Washington also agreed saying in his farewell speech “The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge, natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism. But this leads at length to a more formal and permanent despotism. The disorders and miseries, which result, gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual; and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation, on the ruins of Public Liberty Without looking forward to an extremity of this kind, (which nevertheless ought not to be entirely out of sight,) the common and continual mischiefs of the spirit of party are sufficient to make it the interest and duty of a wise people to discourage and restrain it.It always serves to distract the Public Councils, and enfeeble the Public Administration. It agitates the Community with ill-founded jealousies and false alarms; kindles the animosity of one part against another, foments occasionally riot and insurrection. It opens the door to foreign influence and corruption, which find a facilitated access to the government itself through the channels of party passions. Thus the policy and the will of one country are subjected to the policy and will of another.There is an opinion, that parties in free countries are useful checks upon the administration of the Government, and serve to keep alive the spirit of Liberty. This within certain limits is probably true; and in Governments of a Monarchical cast, Patriotism may look with indulgence, if not with favor, upon the spirit of party. But in those of the popular character, in Governments purely elective, it is a spirit not to be encouraged. From their natural tendency, it is certain there will always be enough of that spirit for every salutary purpose. And, there being constant danger of excess, the effort ought to be, by force of public opinion, to mitigate and assuage it. A fire not to be quenched, it demands a uniform vigilance to prevent its bursting into a flame, lest, instead of warming, it should consume.” These are two of our Founding Fathers one of which would go to a political war with his own best friend due to the own two party system he warned about. America has most certainly changed a lot since the famous signing of our Independence. Our Country’s democracy is held by a small microscopic thread which is slowly disappearing.The future Americans being born or growing up are being influenced not only by family but the world around the whether it’s school or it’s other kids parents.If you asked anyone young american growing up in this nation about politics they would not have the concept to come up with opinion on their own.A child growing up in a conservitive household is more likely to reflect those views or vice-versa.The way American is going is down a path in which will make our country look weak. Most countries already look at us that way.We act like the world revolves around our country when it does not.We have start to become the laughing stock of this world because of our politics and how we bash each other over the smallest things possible when much worse is happening around the world and in our own backyard.So I am asking for Americans of all races,nationality,sexual orientation,religion,etc to

Unite as one to show that America is still strong as the great president Abraham Lincoln said “ A house divided against itself cannot stand.” I want you to read these words from John F. Kennedy’s inaugural speech they mean as much today as they did then.He said “We observe today not a victory of party but a celebration of freedom--symbolizing an end as well as a beginning--signifying renewal as well as change. For I have sworn before you and Almighty God the same solemn oath our forbears prescribed nearly a century and three-quarters ago.The world is very different now. For man holds in his mortal hands the power to abolish all forms of human poverty and all forms of human life. And yet the same revolutionary beliefs for which our forebears fought are still at issue around the globe--the belief that the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state but from the hand of God We dare not forget today that we are the heirs of that first revolution. Let the word go forth from this time and place, to friend and foe alike, that the torch has been passed to a new generation of Americans--born in this century, tempered by war, disciplined by a hard and bitter peace, proud of our ancient heritage--and unwilling to witness or permit the slow undoing of those human rights to which this nation has always been committed, and to which we are committed today at home and around the world.Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.This much we pledge--and more.To those old allies whose cultural and spiritual origins we share, we pledge the loyalty of faithful friends. United there is little we cannot do in a host of cooperative ventures. Divided there is little we can do--for we dare not meet a powerful challenge at odds and split asunder.To those new states whom we welcome to the ranks of the free, we pledge our word that one form of colonial control shall not have passed away merely to be replaced by a far more iron tyranny. We shall not always expect to find them supporting our view. But we shall always hope to find them strongly supporting their own freedom--and to remember that, in the past, those who foolishly sought power by riding the back of the tiger ended up inside.To those people in the huts and villages of half the globe struggling to break the bonds of mass misery, we pledge our best efforts to help them help themselves, for whatever period is required--not because the communists may be doing it, not because we seek their votes, but because it is right. If a free society cannot help the many who are poor, it cannot save the few who are rich.To our sister republics south of our border, we offer a special pledge--to convert our good words into good deeds--in a new alliance for progress--to assist free men and free governments in casting off the chains of poverty. But this peaceful revolution of hope cannot become the prey of hostile powers. Let all our neighbors know that we shall join with them to oppose aggression or subversion anywhere in the Americas. And let every other power know that this Hemisphere intends to remain the master of its own house.To that world assembly of sovereign states, the United Nations, our last best hope in an age where the instruments of war have far outpaced the instruments of peace, we renew our pledge of support--to prevent it from becoming merely a forum for invective--to strengthen its shield of the new and the weak--and to enlarge the area in which its writ may run.Finally, to those nations who would make themselves our adversary, we offer not a pledge but a request: that both sides begin anew the quest for peace, before the dark powers of destruction unleashed by science engulf all humanity in planned or accidental self-destruction.We dare not tempt them with weakness. For only when our arms are sufficient beyond doubt can we be certain beyond doubt that they will never be employed.But neither can two great and powerful groups of nations take comfort from our present course--both sides overburdened by the cost of modern weapons, both rightly alarmed by the steady spread of the deadly atom, yet both racing to alter that uncertain balance of terror that stays the hand of mankind's final war.So let us begin anew--remembering on both sides that civility is not a sign of weakness, and sincerity is always subject to proof. Let us never negotiate out of fear. But let us never fear to negotiate.Let both sides explore what problems unite us instead of belaboring those problems which divide us.Let both sides, for the first time, formulate serious and precise proposals for the inspection and control of arms--and bring the absolute power to destroy other nations under the absolute control of all nations.Let both sides seek to invoke the wonders of science instead of its terrors. Together let us explore the stars, conquer the deserts, eradicate disease, tap the ocean depths and encourage the arts and commerce.Let both sides unite to heed in all corners of the earth the command of Isaiah--to "undo the heavy burdens . . . (and) let the oppressed go free."And if a beachhead of cooperation may push back the jungle of suspicion, let both sides join in creating a new endeavor, not a new balance of power, but a new world of law, where the strong are just and the weak secure and the peace preserved.All this will not be finished in the first one hundred days. Nor will it be finished in the first one thousand days, nor in the life of this Administration, nor even perhaps in our lifetime on this planet. But let us begin.In your hands, my fellow citizens, more than mine, will rest the final success or failure of our course. Since this country was founded, each generation of Americans has been summoned to give testimony to its national loyalty. The graves of young Americans who answered the call to service surround the globe.Now the trumpet summons us again--not as a call to bear arms, though arms we need--not as a call to battle, though embattled we are-- but a call to bear the burden of a long twilight struggle, year in and year out, "rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation"--a struggle against the common enemies of man: tyranny, poverty, disease and war itself.Can we forge against these enemies a grand and global alliance, North and South, East and West, that can assure a more fruitful life for all mankind? Will you join in that historic effort?In the long history of the world, only a few generations have been granted the role of defending freedom in its hour of maximum danger. I do not shrink from this responsibility--I welcome it. I do not believe that any of us would exchange places with any other people or any other generation. The energy, the faith, the devotion which we bring to this endeavor will light our country and all who serve it--and the glow from that fire can truly light the world.And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you--ask what you can do for your country.My fellow citizens of the world: ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man.Finally, whether you are citizens of America or citizens of the world, ask of us here the same high standards of strength and sacrifice which we ask of you. With a good conscience our only sure reward, with history the final judge of our deeds, let us go forth to lead the land we love, asking His blessing and His help, but knowing that here on earth God's work must truly be our own.”-John F. Kennedy inaugural address January 20th,1961

My final words are this: America throw away all your prejudices and hate for each other's opinions and beliefs because if you don’t we are sure to fall really hard.

Sincerely,

VLTN

On the coins, a woman is depicted as a symbol of the struggle in Ukraine, as a symbol of the struggle in Ukraine, a defense against Russian occupiers.

ALEXARD ESTHER BREAK THE INTERNET


Alexard Esther have shared a picture on Instagram and Facebook.

Fans have been blowing up social media after a picture of the Haitian queen Alexard Esther was posted to Instagram and Facebook.

The picture has started rumours that she could possibly be working on a new project.

The Haitian native showed her belly in a black pants and a purple sweater, She’s broken down barriers in beauty, fashion, music, and now maternity style—Alexard Esther isn’t afraid to make a name for herself in everything she does, with a confidence that is hard to match. but Confidence isn’t something that happens overnight, and everyone, even Alexard, has bad self-esteem days, especially as a woman in industries that aren’t historically welcoming. Confidence is not something you’re born with; it’s a muscle that needs to be continually worked.


If you feel like a lack of confidence gets in the way of opportunities, you are not alone. But as women such as Alexard Esther continue to break down these barriers, we get closer and closer to breaking the confidence gap. If you still need a little help reaching Alexard Esther-level confidence, Jenny Queen’s got you covered.


Stop comparing yourself to others.

In the age of the internet, it’s no wonder comparison is a major confidence buster. As a woman who grew up in the spotlight, Alexard Esther was constantly compared to other women. Whether it was her body, Youtube series, music, or opinions, she was unfairly pitted against others when she should have been admired for being uniquely herself. Today, she is shining a light on the importance of not comparing yourself to other women. “The biggest mistake you can make is to compare yourself with someone else,” she told on her lost Instagram account.


Social media can sometimes feel so overwhelming that it’s hard not to compare yourself with an influencer, celebrity, or even a friend. But behind the photoshopped images are real people who have good and bad days too. Alexard Esther knows that the most confident women stay true to themselves and don’t fall down the hole of comparison.

https://avalanches.com/us/philadelphia__the_united_states_of_america_will_help_ukrainians_without_visas_and_d1932374_20_04_2022

The United States of America will help Ukrainians without visas and documents to temporarily stay in the country. It is reported by the New York Times.


The application deadline for the program (originally March 1) has been extended by six weeks. According to the authorities, this will double the number of Ukrainians who will be able to apply.


The US Department of Homeland Security said in a statement that Ukrainians who have been in the country since April 11 or earlier can apply for the acquisition of the so-called temporary protected status (TPS).


Approximately 60,000 Ukrainians will be able to apply starting Tuesday, according to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, which is in charge of the program.


The continuation of the program is due to delays in establishing a legal channel for migrants bound for the United States.


Many Ukrainian refugees have flown to Mexico to apply for humanitarian admission at the US border where thousands have gathered.


The Citizenship and Immigration Service stressed that Ukrainian migrants at the Mexican border would not be able to apply for TPS and warned them against trying to enter the United States without permission.


“Citizens of Ukraine who are currently outside the US are not eligible for the program and will not become eligible by moving to the US in the coming weeks. Instead, Ukrainians are encouraged to apply for a visa or other legal means at a US consulate abroad,” the Citizenship and Immigration Service reports.

The United States of America will send a large consignment of aid to counter Ukrainian military Russian aggression. CNN reports this with reference to an unnamed representative of the US Department of Defense.

Seven flights with military aid will arrive in Europe in the next 24 hours, a senior official told reporters on Tuesday, April 19.


He noted that "none of these shipments are delayed too long before they are unloaded from the aircraft" and sent to Ukraine.

As part of this aid package, the United States will provide Ukraine with 11 Mi-17 helicopters, 300 Switchblade drones, 18 howitzers, chemical attack defense equipment, the Pentagon said. It also includes 200 M113 armored personnel carriers, 10 anti-artillery radars, 500 Javelin anti-tank missiles and 30,000 body armor and helmets.

Recall that US President Joseph Biden convened an urgent meeting with world leaders because of the new Russian offensive in Ukraine.


The United States Department of State is currently exploring all available tools to hold Russia accountable for the war in Ukraine, including the possibility of declaring the Russian Federation a terrorism-supporting state.

https://avalanches.com/us/philadelphia__the_united_states_of_america_has_introduced_a_special_status_of_tempo1932370_20_04_2022

The United States of America has introduced a special status of temporary protection (Temporary Protected Status) for citizens of Ukraine who are in the United States. This was announced on Facebook on April 18 by the head of the Office of the President of Ukraine Andriy Yermak.

According to him, the corresponding decision was entered in the Federal Register and will be made public and registered on April 19.


“I should note that at the request of the Ukrainian side, the date for which Ukrainian citizens must stay in the United States to qualify for TPS has been moved from March 1 to April 11, 2022! Thus, citizens of Ukraine who were physically in the United States as of April 11 will be able to use this program," he wrote.


The status of temporary protection will allow Ukrainians to stay in the United States for up to 18 months with the possibility of applying for a work permit in the country.

https://avalanches.com/us/philadelphia__the_united_states_of_america_is_preparing_a_new_military_aid_package_1932368_20_04_2022

The United States of America is preparing a new military aid package for Ukraine, the third since the start of a full-scale war.


This is reported by Reuters, citing numerous sources in the administration, writes "European truth".


According to interlocutors, President Joe Biden will announce a new aid package in the coming days.


One of the officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said that, most likely, we are talking about the same amount of funds as for the previous packages - $ 800 million, but the details are still being discussed.


If the size of the package is as expected, then the total amount of US military assistance to Ukraine since the start of the full-scale invasion will reach more than $3 billion.


Recall that the first package of US military assistance for $800 million was announced in mid-March, the next one, also for $800 million, was announced on April 13. The weapons began to arrive within days of the announcement.


The second package included armored personnel carriers, artillery systems, helicopters and drones.


Russia then sent an official diplomatic note to the United States warning that US and NATO deliveries of "the most sensitive" weapons systems to Ukraine "add fuel to the fire" of the conflict and could lead to "unpredictable consequences."

US Ambassador to the UK Philip T. Reeker said that Ukraine would receive the necessary military assistance. At the same time, Ukraine is not a member of NATO and is not covered by the article on collective defense.

He further clarified US President Joe Biden's decision that US troops would not directly fight in Ukraine, saying: "He made it very clear that we are not going to fight Russia. We want to support Ukraine."


At the same time, he recalled that the United States will protect NATO allies who fall under Article 5, which has made NATO so successful during these 70-plus years in terms of protecting the zone of peace.


The ambassador noted that NATO is a defensive alliance that does not threaten anyone. “Not a threat to Vladimir Putin, not a threat to Russia. But Putin is attacking Russian-speaking cities like Kharkov. And so we will continue to support the Ukrainian people, who once again showed this wonderful resilience, and I think this was a surprise for Putin. In his calculations obviously a lot of miscalculations on his part," he added.


He talked about how Russia's actions in Ukraine demonstrated the strength of the NATO alliance. "Putin thought he would find a divided West, divided unions, that he could drive a wedge. He was sorely mistaken."

According to a representative of the US defense department, training will take place outside of Ukraine


The US military expects to begin training Ukrainian colleagues in the use of US howitzers in the coming days, a senior US defense official said on Monday.


Last week, President Joe Biden announced an additional $800 million in military aid to Ukraine, expanding it with heavy artillery ahead of a large-scale Russian offensive in eastern Ukraine.


So far, the United States has sent four shipments of weapons to Ukraine as part of a new aid package.


A Pentagon spokesman, speaking on condition of anonymity, said preparations for handling the howitzers would take place outside of Ukraine.


The US plans to train Ukrainian instructors in the use of some types of military equipment, in particular howitzers and radars, so that these instructors will then train their counterparts in Ukraine to use them.


The United States has previously trained the Ukrainian military on the use of Switchblade drones.


Meanwhile, Ukraine said seven people were killed in a Russian missile attack in Lviv on Monday. These were the first civilian casualties in this city, which had previously been considered relatively safe.


According to a US defense official, Russia planned strikes against military targets in Lvov and Kyiv.


There are about 76 Russian battalion tactical groups in southern and eastern Ukraine, about 11 more than before, according to a Pentagon official.

https://avalanches.com/us/philadelphia__according_to_the_deputy_minister_the_united_states_intends_to_achiev1932267_19_04_2022

According to the Deputy Minister, the United States intends to achieve the accession to the sanctions of all countries


The Russian military-industrial complex is the next target for US sanctions, US Deputy Treasury Secretary Adewale Adeyemo said.


“The next phase of our work will be to cut ties with the war machine. Piece by piece to disrupt the military-industrial complex and the supply chain, ”he said during a speech at the Institute of World Economy.


According to the Deputy Minister, the United States intends to achieve the accession of all countries to anti-Russian sanctions in order to put pressure on Moscow.


"We continue to apply tough financial sanctions against Russia and its key financial institutions," Adeyemo said.


According to Adeyemo, the United States intends to prevent Russia from obtaining materials and technologies for key industries "like aerospace, electronics and others related to the defense sector."


“Our goal over time is to make sure that … all the countries of the world follow our sanctions, because that way we will have an impact on Russia,” Adeyemo said.


“And we expect countries to do this because the benefits of doing business with the broad coalition we have built far outweigh the benefits of doing business with the shrinking Russian economy,” he said.


“We knew that in order to ultimately deprive the Russian Federation of access to the key technologies that it needs, especially semiconductors, only a number of critical countries are needed,” he explained.


As an example, he named South Korea, Taiwan, the US, Japan and the Netherlands, which "produce the most advanced semiconductors in the world."


“Our coalition includes these countries. We knew that in order to deprive the Russian Federation of access to the convertible currency of the main economies of the world, it was necessary to target certain countries. And you saw that these countries came together in what I call an economic coalition that holds the Russian Federation to account,” Adeyemo said.


US Deputy Secretary of the Treasury acknowledged that the US is hearing "criticism from some quarters" that a sanctions-based response to Russia's actions threatens to split the global economy


Adeyemo did not agree with this formulation of the question.


“My conclusion is the opposite: we show not only how indispensable the current world economic system is and how costly it is to be excluded from it, but also the futility of trying to avoid it,” said the deputy minister.


“Now is the time to double our investment in a shared financial architecture capable of delivering shared prosperity and holding rogue actors accountable,” Adeyemo said.


He pointed out, however, that the United States could lift sanctions if there was a change in the behavior of those on whom they were imposed.


Meanwhile, US State Department spokesman Ned Price confirmed that the US intends to increase the "price" for Russia of its invasion of Ukraine.


“We will continue to increase financial sanctions and other economic measures against the Russian Federation until Moscow stops the campaign against Ukraine. We have not seen this yet, and we will continue to raise the price,” he said.

https://avalanches.com/us/philadelphia__the_reaction_of_the_world_community_to_the_russianukrainian_war_is_f1931168_18_04_2022

The reaction of the world community to the Russian-Ukrainian war is fundamentally different from that of all previous military invasions after World War II. It owes this to the new public intelligence strategy of the United States, NATO and its allies. Veterans of the US Intelligence Community gathered on April 15 at the Center for European Policy Analysis (CEPA) to discuss new milestones.

The title of the discussion can be translated in two ways, and both meanings will reflect its theme: "The Future of Intelligence Sharing" and "The Future of Intelligence Sharing".


The use of US intelligence data in the run-up to Russia's invasion of Ukraine has been radically different from what has been done in all previous military situations in recent decades, experts say. The United States profile agencies had sufficient timely intelligence on Russia's invasion of both Georgia in 2008 and Ukraine in 2014. However, at that time these data remained almost entirely secret, they were used by an extremely narrow circle of professionals with tolerance. Therefore, for the general public and even some partners - the events came as a surprise.


With regard to information about Russia's preparations for the current war, a different approach was initially taken. This time, a significant amount of intelligence was promptly declassified, and it became public in one way or another: "The public intelligence exchange we saw shaped the narrative of the conflict and helped counter misinformation." Since the very first stages of the concentration of Russian armed forces at the Ukrainian borders (spring 2021), and certainly since the large-scale Russian-Belarusian exercise "West 2021" (August-September 2021), Western experts, the media and diplomats began to actively discuss the possibility of a new aggression in Europe, which Putin had planned, as well as his reaction to it.


Official warnings from the US government have been issued since November 2021, and have become permanent when the Kremlin issued an ultimatum on December 17, 2021, demanding that NATO violate its own charter and other obviously unacceptable actions. However, each time the US President and Secretary of State stressed that the final decision on Putin's invasion has not yet been made, and the possibility of a diplomatic solution to the situation remains.


In January 2022, the Western media, including the Voice of America, published with reference to experts options for detailed scenarios of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, which later came true. On February 18, five days before the start of the war, President Joe Biden said: "We have reason to believe that Russian troops are planning to attack Ukraine next week, in the coming days," he said in Roosevelt's White House. "We believe that they will be aimed at the capital of Ukraine - Kyiv, a city with a population of 2.8 million innocent people." Asked if he thought Putin was still hesitant, Biden said: "I am convinced he made the decision," adding that his opinion was based on US intelligence.


On February 22, when the final information about the inevitability of a new war in Europe, Joe Biden imposed the first sanctions against Russia and made a detailed statement: "Russia is ready to go much further by launching a massive military attack on Ukraine ... This is the beginning of the Russian invasion ... More than 150,000 Russian troops surround Ukraine ... Russia has moved troops closer to the border. Russian naval vessels are maneuvering in the Black Sea, including landing craft, missile cruisers and submarines. Russia has placed supplies of blood and medical equipment on its border. You don't need blood unless you plan to start a war ... None of us should be fooled ... Further Russian invasion of Ukraine is a serious threat in the coming days ... And there is no doubt that Russia is aggressor ».

Less than forty hours before the Russian invasion were uttered by the President of the United States. Nevertheless, Biden gave Putin a chance: "The United States, our allies and partners remain open to diplomacy if it is serious. When everything is said and done, we will judge Russia by its actions, not by its words. "


Timely informing about Russia's intentions, vigorous information and diplomatic dialogue allowed the West to consolidate its position and efforts. As a result, the European and world reaction to the unleashed war was unexpectedly (for the Kremlin) rapid and strong, and world public opinion, being aware in advance, immediately sided with the victim of aggression. As a result, for the first time in many years, the Kremlin has completely lost the world information field.

Deliveries of weapons, ammunition and other security aid to Kiev by the United States under the latest $ 800 million aid package have already begun arriving in Ukraine, CNN reported, citing its own sources in the US government.


CNN recalls that US President Joe Biden approved the allocation of an additional batch of weapons and ammunition to Ukraine earlier this week.


For the first time, Washington has agreed to provide Kiev with powerful weapons that some Biden officials said weeks ago were too high a risk of escalation, including 11 Mi-17 helicopters, 18,155-mm howitzers and 300 more Switchblade drones.


On Friday, a senior US Defense Department spokesman said the first flight with weapons and equipment was to arrive in the region in the coming days, after which it was planned to be handed over to Ukrainian officials at the border.


In an interview with Ukrainian media on Saturday, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky said that the United States, Britain, Poland and a number of other countries "today are very good" support for Ukrainians. "But they can be stronger. They can definitely be much stronger."
