Kali Uchis announces In Your Dreams North American fall tour

Latin crossover singer Kali Uchis has announced a run of North American headlining concert dates set for this fall to help promote her recently released sophomore album, Isolation. The run of headlining concerts are scheduled to begin on Sept. 13 at Showbox SoDo in Seattle, and carries on throughout the rest of the month and well into October before coming to an end with a gig at Minneapolis’ First Avenue on Oct. 23.

Scheduled stops on the fall trek include shows at San Francisco’s Warfield Theatre, Los Angeles’ Shrine Exposition Hall and New York City’s Terminal 5. Uchis will be joined throughout the tour on select shows by multi-instrumentalist Gabriel Garzón-Montano and Cuco. Tickets for select shows on the tour will be going on sale to the public starting this Friday (June 22) at 10 a.m. local time, and can be purchased by clicking here.

Uchis released Isolation back on April 6, which included cameos and contributions from a wide range of pop and adult contemporary artists such as Thundercat, Gorillaz’s Damon Albarn, Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker, Bootsy Collins and Tyler, The Creator, just to name a few. Uchis was also notably the only female artist to be featured on Gorillaz’s 2017 Humanz album. The early spring arrival of Isolation also provided Uchis’ stock within the mainstream realm a well-deserved boost, in addition to some new music to perform at both weekends of Coachella. Prior to the upcoming tour, fans can also catch Uchis when she takes the stage at Chicago’s Lollapalooza in early August.

He was once a leading Trump supporter. Now this Mexican-American lawyer denounces his policy on migrant children

Jake Monty, a former member of President Trump’s National Hispanic Advisory Council, once argued the “Latino case” for supporting the billionaire mogul’s presidential campaign but jumped ship in the middle of the 2016 campaign when Trump’s immigration proposals hardened in the mold of his nationalist advisers.

Yahoo News reached out to Monty to see what he thinks now about Trump’s immigration policies, particularly the internment of undocumented children. He said it’s troubling to see the administration let the fate of undocumented immigrants be determined by a political agenda.

“The brinkmanship he is playing on this issue is scary,” he said.

Monty, a third-generation Mexican-American whose wife was born in Mexico, has spent most of his career advocating for immigrant rights as a lawyer in Texas. He was unusual in supporting a candidate who notoriously launched his campaign with a speech calling Mexican immigrants drug smugglers and rapists. But Monty, a conservative Republican, was willing to give the businessman the benefit of the doubt over Hillary Clinton, who he said had played “a cynical game with immigrant lives” as senator and whose husband’s crackdown on undocumented workers was draconian.

In June 2016, five months before the presidential election, Monty held a fundraiser for Trump and penned an op-ed for the Daily Caller titled, “A Latino’s Case for Trump.”

But the Trump administration is separating children from their parents when they illegally cross the border into the United States. It ended the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which gave temporary legal status to the children of undocumented immigrants.

“In addition to the child-separation policy, which is mean-spirited, misguided and actually makes the problem worse, I think there are other issues that are very concerning as well,” Monty told Yahoo News. “The DACA problem has not been solved. This is a problem that he’s made worse because he’s the one who abrogated DACA. If any kids fall out of status or get deported, it’s going to be on his watch.”

Monty gave credit to Trump for condemning MS-13, which he has done consistently since becoming president, as a scourge on the immigrant community, but thinks the Trump administration’s overall nativism is harmful to the Latino community.

Of course, he said, Hispanic and Latino people care about issues other than immigration. But it’s hard to get beyond words like “animals” or “illegals” used in reference to humans. Just last month, Trump said, “We’re taking people out of the country. You wouldn’t believe how bad these people are. These aren’t people. These are animals.

Monty said rhetoric like this has severely damaged the Republican Party’s reputation among Hispanics.

“At the back of your mind you’re thinking, ‘Wow, this is the same party that referred to them as animals. If I weren’t in a suit and $3,000 cowboy boots, would they think that I’m illegal too or that I’m a ‘wetback’? That is the problem,” he said.

“Wetback” is a slur on Mexican immigrants who entered the United States by crossing the Rio Grande.

On Aug. 20, 2016, Monty attended a meeting of Trump’s National Hispanic Advisory Council, made up of business, civic and religious leaders. Trump reportedly told the council he’d be more moderate in office than his campaign rhetoric was signaling. Afterward, Trump held a rally in Austin where he floated the idea of letting undocumented immigrants without a criminal record and with longstanding ties to America stay in the U.S. There were reports that Trump would announce a major change to his immigration policy in a speech in Colorado, a moderate purple state.

At first, Monty said, it seemed that everything the campaign had told him (and that he predicted in his op-ed piece) was coming to fruition. But that glimmer of hope faded quickly. First, the announcement was scheduled for Aug. 31 in Arizona, a red state.

“Then the Hispanic council wasn’t invited to that speech, lo and behold,” Monty said. “There was nothing resembling what he talked about to us at Trump Tower in that speech.”

“Anyone who has entered the United States illegally is subject to deportation,” Trump declared. Monty resigned from Trump’s council the next day.

“It was a great group of people. I know some of the people who stayed on. Others resigned,” Monty said. “I was proud to serve on it before the Aug. 31 speech in Phoenix. But after that speech, there was no way I could stay on.”

The National Hispanic Advisory Council had roughly two dozen members at the time. There were conflicting reports on just how many left alongside Monty. The RNC told BuzzFeed News at the time that only two left. Monty said the council continues to exist — hosting events and conducting outreach to the Hispanic community — but has struggled to find additional Hispanic advisers who want to be affiliated with the administration.

Monty blames Attorney General Jeff Sessions and senior Trump adviser Stephen Miller for the administration’s draconian measures against undocumented families at the border. He was glad to see right-wing political strategist Steve Bannon leave the White House. Nevertheless, he said Trump cannot escape responsibility for having empowered them.

Monty still hopes that the more moderate Donald Trump he thought he once knew will show up again.

“Which Donald Trump will it be? The businessman, the dealmaker, the guy who has reached across the aisle to make deals with Democrats on budget issues? Or will it be the leader of the mob who wants to score points with his base and keep people riled up? I’m certainly hoping it’s the former and not the latter.”

American Medical Association goes all-in for gun control, turning doctors into police state enforcers

The American Medical Association (AMA) is a powerful organization that defines medical education and medical practice in the U.S. The organization creates policies for all physicians to follow and they can threaten a doctor’s medical license if they do not follow along. In 2018, the AMA has decided to support gun control as a public health issue.

First established in 1845, the AMA determined, most importantly, medical ethics. This includes protecting a patient’s right to informed consent before any medical treatment or procedure takes place. Today, the AMA fails to enforce its informed consent policy, allowing pediatricians to get away with vaccinating kids without providing the vaccine insert to parents. If informed consent was enforced, then parents would see the lack of safety data for vaccines. Parents would see exactly what vaccines are doing to their sons and daughters, and doctors would honor parents’ questions, concerns, and decisions not to vaccinate.

Over the years, the AMA established rules for what constitutes a medical education. AMA policy makers soon dictated what medicine was, establishing chemical interventions as the only model of “evidence-based” medicine. The AMA has a dark history of suppressing effective herbal medicine, chiropractic care, homeopathy, cancer cures, and alternative therapies for healing. It’s not surprising that the AMA is all in for the current CDC vaccine schedule, advocating dozens of vaccine doses for children, even though reports of vaccine damage continue to pour in to the VAERS reporting system. (Related: More children harmed by vaccines than from gunshots, government statistics reveal.)

If public health continues to decline due to the AMA’s inane vaccine policies, why would anyone trust that they know what they are talking about when it comes to curbing gun violence? Even worse, why would the AMA spend resources instructing doctors to push for gun control policies, when children’s brains are being altered by the psychiatric drugs that the AMA pushes?

AMA’s new gun control push turns doctors against patients

Many physicians aren’t going to follow suit with this insidious gun control agenda, because many doctors are gun owners too, and they want to respect the privacy of their patients. Many physicians aren’t going to be a police state enforcer, turning in their patients because they own a scary-looking rifle or a 14 round “high capacity” magazine. Physicians should be smart enough to know that “assault” is an action, not an object. Naming a class of firearms as “assault weapons” doesn’t make these objects more dangerous.

Notwithstanding, there will still be those doctors who bow down to the AMA and become snitches for the Marxist gun control agenda. Claiming that they are “improving public health” by removing firearms from the streets, these lackey doctors will do the “heroic” work of turning in their “high risk” patients who own firearms. All the while, these doctors will prescribe psychiatric drugs that provably cause violent behavior and suicide. Then they will turn around and inject children with brain-damaging aluminum and pump them full of antibiotics which cause gut dysbiosis and ultimately changes brain chemicals.

AMA President Dr. David O. Barbe spoke to association members at a recent meeting, decrying that physicians “must not back down from addressing gun violence.” Among their policies for “addressing gun violence,” the AMA calls for ensuring that schools remain “gun free zones” with no actionable plan to protect students from attacks. Not surprisingly, the AMA is also opposed to conceal and carry reciprocity, where private, well trained individuals carry concealed handguns for personal and public protection.

The AMA also supports gun confiscation through gun buy-back programs and wants physicians to identify “high risk” individuals, so these individuals can be barred from owning a firearm or have their guns taken away immediately. Crime prevention sounds noble, but one physician’s definition of “high risk” will differ from another’s. Individuals who have not committed a crime could be declared “high risk” by a paranoid, gun-illiterate physician. The doctor could have the individual’s guns confiscated by law enforcement, without due process of law and all based on his biased suspicion. Which beliefs and attitudes make a person “high risk?” Are doctors who push pills even capable of making that judgment?

Dr. Barbe believes that “high capacity” magazines, which are defined as having more than 10 rounds of ammunition, are part of the problem. The AMA also calls on Congress to ban “assault-style” rifles, such as the Armalite-15. According to Dr. Barbe, only government officials and military service people are allowed to possess magazines with more than ten rounds. Only authority can carry rifles that can be fired semi-automatically.

Why won’t the AMA focus on the real triggers that lead to violence?

“Every day, physicians are treating suicide victims, victims of domestic partner violence, and men and women simply in the wrong place at the wrong time,” Barbe said. “It doesn’t have to be this way, and we urge lawmakers to act.”

While Dr. Barbe seems well-intentioned, targeting the tool and the innocent owner is no way to reduce violence. Just because suicide and domestic violence incidences are going up, doesn’t mean we should start blaming an inanimate object and an innocent population that abides by the law. If Dr. Barbe really cared, the AMA would investigate what actually triggers people to commit violence against themselves and others. The AMA should be focusing on the issues of the human heart and the circumstances that lead people to commit acts of violence. Blaming law abiding people (who can help protect against violence) is no way to address the problem. The AMA should investigate the brain damage that occurs after vaccination, following aluminum uptake into the brain. The AMA should investigate gut dysbiosis, a modern day health problem that triggers changes in the human brain. The AMA should investigate their own blind support for psychiatric medications, which have a track record of exacerbating violent or erratic behavior in certain people.

Black Supremacist Cults are Behind Black American Culture

Most of these groups can be traced back to the “prophet” Timothy Drew, left, (January 8, 1886 – July 20, 1929), better known as Noble Drew Ali, founder of the Moorish Science Temple of America.  According to Wikipedia “Drew Ali reported that during his travels in Egypt, he met a high priest of Egyptian magic. In one version of Drew Ali’s biography, the leader saw him as a reincarnation of the founder.[6] In others, he claims that the priest considered him a reincarnation of Jesus, the Buddha, Muhammad and other religious prophets.[6]

Insane Border Patrol car chase demonstrates how illegals put American citizens at risk on public roads


Image: Insane Border Patrol car chase demonstrates how illegals put American citizens at risk on public roads

(Natural News)
Another tragedy involving illegal aliens has occurred in Texas that not only serves to highlight the inadequacies of our current level of border security but also how dangerous it can be for American citizens caught up in the political posturing over the issue.

As reported by News4 San Antonio, an SUV packed with 14 people — 12 of them in the country illegally — tried to outrun U.S. Border Patrol agents who attempted to stop the vehicle over suspicions of human smuggling.

During the ensuing chase, vehicles reached speeds of 100 miles per hour or more. At one point the driver of the SUV lost control of the vehicle and it rolled over several times, ejecting several people.

Four illegal aliens were pronounced dead at the scene; a fifth died later at a San Antonio hospital, while a sixth was said to be in critical condition.

In all, nine people were flown or transported from the scene for medical care. News4 San Antonio reported that the two smugglers, believed to be American citizens, are in custody. 

The station reported further:

A border patrol agent observed three vehicles traveling one behind the other on FM 2664 and suspected a smuggling attempt was happening, the agency said in a statement. The agent was able to stop one of the vehicle [sic] and called out a description of the other two. A second border patrol agent was able to pull over the second vehicle but the third refused to stop. The agency said multiple arrest [sic] were made in both vehicles.

Dimmit County Sheriff Marion Boyd, said, “What we could tell, the vehicle ran off the road and caught gravel.” 

Regarding the conditions surrounding the chase — illegal immigration — he said, “It’s a problem. This is, what I think, a perfect example of why our borders need to be secure.”

Boyd also noted that the accident, as bad as it was, could have been a lot worse — for the county and its residents. 

“It endangers American lives as well as those of…people from Mexico and other countries coming here to…for whatever reason, they’re coming. So it is a major problem.” 

His solution? He agrees with President Donald Trump: In places where it can be feasibly built, the U.S. needs a border wall — because it’s obvious that Mexico isn’t interested in any solution that makes it more difficult to export its poverty and criminal element to its northern neighbor.

The cost of illegal immigration is multi-faceted

But the problem of illegal immigration encompasses more than just physical endangerment of American citizens, though that’s serious in and of itself. (Related: Citing chaos in Europe, Trump VOWS America ‘won’t become a migrant camp’ on HIS watch.)

Hordes of migrants pouring into the country from impoverished third-world nations is a massive financial drain not just on the U.S. Treasury but local communities as well who are increasingly responsible for taking care of them.

Think for a moment what city, county, and state taxpayers in Texas are going to have to shell out just to care for the migrants injured in this horrific crash; their care is liable to run into the hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars, they are so serious. 

Communities also pay for illegal immigration in other ways. ‘Undocumented’ migrants very often work for lower wages, thereby depressing them for American citizens. 

Local schools are required by law to provide educational services to migrant children — services that not only include regular classes but also school-supplied meals, after-hours care, and other amenities.

Many counties close to the border must spend scarce resources on extra policing due to increased migrant crime.

And of course, Democrats and RINOs complaining the loudest about Trump administration immigration law enforcement policies don’t live in areas most affected by illegal immigration.

What happened in Big Wells, Texas, this week is a tragedy, for certain, but it goes far beyond just the loss of life.

American Medical Association Calls for Nationwide Ban of All Assault Rifles and High Capacity Guns

gunsguns

In an unusual departure from its historical focus on health and medicine, the American Medical Association (AMA) is now calling for bans, confiscation, and forced registration of guns. Arguably political, the AMA’s proclamation mirrors the strict gun control measures found throughout the United Kingdom, which critics say are blatantly unconstitutional in the United States.

The AMA is not alone in the fight to wrangle guns from the hands of citizens. Representatives Ted Deutch (D – Fla), Jim Langevin (D – R.I.), and Gwen Moore (D – Wis.) recently proposed legislation weaponizing the Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) to go after gun dealers. The lawmakers have proposed the Keeping Gun Dealers Honest Act, known in the House as House Bill 6075. Their proposal seeks to:

  1. Authorize increased ATF inspections of gun dealers to ensure compliance standards are met.
  2. Strengthen penalties for falsifying gun sales records, including longer prison sentences for violators.
  3. Add new types of civil sanctions for gun dealers who violate ATF regulations.
  4. Permit ATF discretion in issuing gun licenses.
  5. Allow ATF to require dealers to conduct physical inventories if more than ten crime guns are traced back to them.

The AMA now wants to expand existing gun confiscation programs already in effect in some states by having the federal government create an “instant” background check database, which would include anyone and everyone who has ever had a restraining order placed on them. Such restraining orders bypass due process as neither a judge nor a jury has decided whether or not the individual poses a threat or is simply the victim of someone with a vendetta or civil case against them.

The AMA now wants all domestic violence restraining orders, including ex-boyfriends/girlfriends to be added to the instant background check database to be run by the federal government. The medical association also wants to keep schools gun-free—negating propositions to arm teachers—and it is presenting specific instructions on how it wants guns to be regulated.

The association used gun death statistics as an impetus to call for the ban on “the sale and ownership to the public of all assault-type weapons, bump stocks and related devices, high-capacity magazines, and armor-piercing bullets.” Such guns are currently being used to eradicate the wild boar infestation throughout the United States, but never mind that fact, they look scary to non-gun folks and therefore, presumably, must be banned. Additionally, the AMA wants guns to stay out of the hands of anyone younger than 21—military excluded, of course—detailed in the following manner:

  1. Support banning the possession and use of firearms and ammunition by unsupervised youths under the age of 21.
  2. Support banning the sales of firearms and ammunition from licensed and unlicensed dealers to those under the age of 21—excluding certain categories of individuals, such as military and law enforcement personnel.
  3. Oppose “concealed carry reciprocity” federal legislation that would require all states to recognize concealed-carry firearm permits granted by other states and that would allow citizens with concealed gun carry permits in one state to carry guns across state lines into states that have stricter laws.

While all of the proposals are written to ostensibly sound like “common sense gun measures,” law-abiding Americans currently enjoy hunting, sometimes alone, and they are under 21. Some kids have grown up hunting, know how to handle a firearm, and shouldn’t be forced to wait until they are 21 to hunt by themselves unsupervised.

Private gun sales take place all of the time without forcing law-abiding citizens to get permission from their sheriff to do so. Selling grandpa’s shotgun under the new proposals would be impossible. Adding to the lunacy of the proposals is the fact that Americans cannot defend themselves when they travel across state lines.

For example, a law-abiding Arizonan currently cannot take their handgun to California to keep their families safe while traveling. A national right-to-carry permit is what is needed to ensure law-abiding citizens do not instantly become felons when going on vacation. Such freedoms are under threat if the AMA and gun-grabbing, gun-hating lawmakers have their way.

With the AMA now calling for the most restrictive gun control measures the country has ever seen, and proposals empowering the ATF to go after gun dealers, in the very near future, few Americans could hardly expect to be able to waltz into a local Walmart, buy a shotgun, and put deer meat on the dinner table. Unless, of course, they wish to be subjected to a national watch list, having their criminal, health, psychological, and social backgrounds scrutinized, and the decision of whether or not they can buy a gun be approved by artificial intelligence—hypothetically speaking, of course. In other words, the AMA and members of the government want more control over your already afforded constitutional rights.

The slow and steady methodical chipping away at constitutional rights is taking place all across the country with disastrous results in gun-free-zones, such as Chicago. Guns are banned there already, yet criminals enjoy freely killing, maiming, and injuring law-abiding citizens at will. Why? Because law-abiding Americans are defenseless against criminals with guns. Such propositions by lawmakers and a medical association—which should be more focused on expunging antidepressants and other psychotropics known to cause gun violence, mass murder, and suicides—are further proof that, as The Free Thought Project has reported, “They are coming for your guns.”

DASH cryptocurrency and The Free Thought Project have formed a partnership that will continue to spread the ideas of peace and freedom while simultaneously teaching people how to operate outside of the establishment systems of control like using cryptocurrency instead of dollars. Winning this battle is as simple as choosing to abstain from the violent corrupt old system and participating in the new and peaceful system that hands the power back to the people. DASH is this system.

DASH digital cash takes the control the banking elite has over money and gives it back to the people. It is the ultimate weapon in the battle against the money changers and information controllers.

If you’d like to start your own DASH wallet and be a part of this change and battle for peace and freedom, you can start right here. DASH is already accepted by vendors all across the world so you can begin using it immediately.

American Medical Association sliding toward support of physician-assisted suicide… here come the death panels


Image: American Medical Association sliding toward support of physician-assisted suicide… here come the death panels

(Natural News)
Will the American Medical Association soon be in favor of physician-assisted suicide? In early June, the AMA decided not to reaffirm its position against assisted suicide – a decision which has shocked many. But indeed, the AMA has gone against its own Council on Ethical and Judicial Affairs, which recommended the AMA maintain its opposition of euthanasia for humans.

Advocates for assisted suicide have been very successful at opening doors for euthanasia in medicine. In some states, affiliate groups have already taken a more neutral stance on this issue, paving the way for legislators to approve the legalization of doctor-assisted suicide. While proponents of euthanasia say that their cause gives patients the right to a dignified death, the issue isn’t really that cut and dry. There are substantial concerns about the potential for abuse and coercion. Inevitably, this could give rise to an untold number of citizens quietly being put to death against their will – while no one will be the wiser.

Experts warn against assisted suicide

Matt Vallière, the Executive Director of Patients Rights Action Fund, told Life News that he, and other advocates for patients’ rights, are very concerned about the AMA’s sudden change of heart.

“The American Medical Association’s decision to not confirm their own Council on Ethical and Judicial Affairs’ recommendation – namely that they maintain their opposition to assisted suicide – does not take into account that this bad public policy puts vulnerable patients at high risk for coercion, mistakes and even abuse. Although the AMA’s opposition position still stands for now, a referral back to CEJA is a lost opportunity and a failure to stand against a policy that has grave consequences for everyone, but especially persons living with illness, disabilities, or socio-economic disadvantage. Assisted suicide is not medical care,” Vallière stated.

Further, he noted, the AMA’s Council on Ethical and Judicial Affairs spent two years poring over research on assisted suicide before making their recommendation. The Council is an internationally respected panel of experts, and the AMA has basically ignored the panel’s statements on euthanasia in entirety, declaring that the issue needs “further study.”

In their conclusion, the Council stated, “Physician-assisted suicide is fundamentally incompatible with the physician’s role as healer, would be difficult or impossible to control, and would pose serious societal risks.”

The dangers of euthanasia

The American College of Physicians (ACP) reaffirmed their stance against assisted suicide last year, noting that: “The power to prescribe assisted suicide carries a profound potential for misuse and abuse.” In their statement, the ACP noted that in a time when the cost of care is on everyone’s mind, the rising demand for euthanasia is alarming. And indeed it is; after all, killing off the “sick enough” would inevitably prove to be the best way to save money – how long will it take for that to become a platform?

As Dr. Bernat, hailing from Dartmouth Medical School, wrote in 1997, there are several issues with assisted suicide. In addition to harming patient-professional relationships and damaging the practice of palliative care, the legalization of euthanasia will lead to more death. Dr. Bernat surmises that once physician-assisted suicides are legal, it will only be a matter of time before two things happen: Voluntary euthanasia will become legal, and soon after that, involuntary euthanasia will follow.

Proponents of assisted suicide may scoff at that last contention – but look no further than the killing of a 29-year-old mentally ill woman in the Netherlands for proof that involuntary euthanasia is already reality. Can someone struggling with a mental illness make a rational choice in this situation, especially in a society that is basically telling them their life is not worth living?

In the Netherlands, infants who are disabled and unable to consent to assisted suicide are regularly euthanized under what’s known as the “Groningen Protocol.” Studies have shown that staggeringly few infant euthanasia cases are reported on – even though estimates indicate 20 Netherlands babies are intentionally killed by their doctors every year.

Studies from Belgium, where euthanasia is also legal, show that 30 percent of those euthanized are actually being killed without consent. Where do we draw the line?

'Delta Hill Riders': African-American cowboy culture in the Mississippi Delta

Rory Doyle’s ongoing personal project shares the story of African-American cowboy culture in the rural Mississippi Delta, challenging the Hollywood portrayal of the American cowboy. The work highlights the black cowboys and cowgirls in the Delta as a proud group existing beyond the movie image of the American West.

The project began in early 2017 when Doyle attended a rodeo celebrating black cowboy heritage in the region. Over the past year, he’s documented this band of horse riders in a place not typically known for its cowboys. 

A recent article from Smithsonian magazine estimated that one in four cowboys was African-American following the Civil War, yet this population was drastically underrepresented in popular accounts. “Delta Hill Riders” sheds light on a prominent subculture historically overlooked, even in the Mississippi Delta.

Born in 1983, Maine native Doyle is currently based in Cleveland, Miss., the heart of the Delta. Doyle’s editorial work highlights populations in the region that are often unnoticed or underserved. Along with his series about African-American Delta cowboys, he has documented the growing Latino population in an area most known for its black and white history. Doyle’s publication list includes the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Atlantic, ESPN’s “The Undefeated,” Getty Images, Vox Media and the Financial Times. He also provides marketing imagery for Delta State University.

Doyle has twice assisted Ron Haviv, photographer and co-founder of VII, while he instructed the documentary photography course for Barefoot Workshops in Clarksdale, Miss.

An exhibition opening and talk for “Delta Hill Riders” by Rory Doyle is on Tuesday, June 19, 2018, at 7 p.m. at the Half King Photography Series in New York City. It will be led by Anna Van Lenten, curator of the Half King Photography Series. The exhibition will run until Aug. 6. A concurrent show at Tikhonova Gallery in Harlem will have an opening reception Sunday, June 17, 2018, from 2 to 5 p.m. with an artist talk at 4 p.m. and runs through July 29, 2018.

Trade War? India to tax 30 American products in ‘equivalent’ retaliation for US tariffs hike

India will suspend trade concessions and raise import duties on 30 products from the United States by up to 50 percent, in a mirror response to Washington’s impetuous move to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports.

New Delhi has drawn up a list of 30 American products it now wants to target with increased import duties. The new measures will see a 50 percent tariff increase on motorcycles with engine capacities of over 800cc, while apple imports would be charged with a 25 percent levy. Imports of almonds and walnuts would see a 20 percent levy.

Earlier this week, New Delhi sent a letter to the World Trade Organization notifying the body of its intention. The total tariff increase on all products in the list will amount to an estimated additional $240 million in import fees. The sum is roughly equivalent to the damage India would suffer from Donald Trump’s protectionist measures.

“The proposed suspension of concessions or other obligations takes the form of an increase in tariffs on selected products originating in the United States, based on the measures of the United States,” New Delhi wrote to the WTO on June 13. “India wishes to clarify that suspension of concessions shall be equivalent to the amount of trade affected by the United States’ measures.”

“India reserves its right to further suspend substantially equivalent concessions and other obligations based on the trade impact resulting from the application of the measures of the United States,” the notification added.

In March, President Trump announced 25 and 10 percent tariffs on all foreign steel and aluminum entering the United States. While some countries were granted exemptions, India wasn’t. New Delhi made representations to the WTO in May, threatening to raise duties by up to 100 percent on 20 products imported from the United States. This week, the government has finalized its list and figures. Earlier, India said it will go ahead with retaliatory measures on 21 June, unless the US reconsiders its import fees.

New Delhi notified the WTO just as Commerce Minister Suresh Prabhu was wrapping up his trip to Washington, where he held discussions with US Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, to find ways to avoid an all-out trade war.

Last week, speaking at the G7 gathering in Canada, Donald Trump lashed out against “unfair” foreign trade relations, this time between the United States and India. “I mean, we have India, where some of the tariffs are 100 percent. A hundred percent. And we charge nothing. We can’t do that,” Trump said last week. “We’re like the piggybank that everybody is robbing.”
