The airplane was hired by the Trump reelection campaign in what is likely a preview of how the president will treat his eventual opponent: as a leftist dangerous to ordinary Americans. Democrats were certainly aware of Trump's gaze. I have a few words for Donald Trump, who we all know is watching,” Sen. Kamala Harris of California said in her opening statement.
With the United States developing a new generation of cruise missiles in response to alleged Russian arms control violations, a response from Moscow was inevitable. The Pentagon has already tested a new ground-launched cruise missile with a range of 500 kilometers (311 miles), which exceeds INF Treaty limits. “Russia has legal grounds, in response to the emergence of new weapons from the USA after leaving the INF Treaty, to deploy their submarines and ships with medium and shorter-range missiles in relative proximity to the U.S. borders,” Major General Vladimir Bogatyrev, a reservist and chairman of the National Association of Reserve Officers, told Russian newspaper Nezavisimaya Gazeta.

Fox Nation host Tomi Lahren declared on Friday that Americans need guns in order to potentially fight off unlimited immigrants coming into the United States, adding that citizens need the ability to “defend ourselves” because “we don't know” who is coming into the country. Appearing on Fox Business Network's Varney and Co., the conservative firebrand reacted to Democrats' calls for stricter gun control in the wake of several mass shootings. “I would also remind those that might not have a use for a gun or don't feel they have a use for a gun, many Americans do,” Lahren told Fox Business anchor Stuart Varney.
Actress Felicity Huffman has been accused of benefiting from “white privilege” after getting just a two-week jail sentence over paying to inflate her daughter's exam results. US congressman Hakeem Jeffries, chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, and Martina Navratilova, the tennis player, were among those who took to Twitter to suggest Ms Huffman had got off lightly given her background. There was also criticism of the minimum-security prison she will be incarcerated in, which reportedly has the nickname “Club Fed” because of its cushy conditions.
A pair Confederate statues will remain standing in the city of Virginian city Charlottesville where clashes over their removal left a young woman dead. After city officials decided to remove statues of Confederate American Civil War generals Robert E Lee and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson, one resident filed a lawsuit to prevent this.

Tesla's automated emergency braking (AEB) system, which was first introduced in 2017, has improved markedly in a relatively short amount of time. Just a few weeks ago, for example, Tesla demonstrated its next-gen AEB system which can more ably apply the brakes when a pedestrian or cyclist is detected. With that said, we recently stumbled across a new video which shows a Tesla Model 3 abruptly hit the brakes when a police officer on a motorcycle runs a red light and turns left into oncoming traffic.

Trump's tweet was in response to a vote Thursday in the House Judiciary Committee to establish rules for eventual hearings that could, in theory, lead to the president's possible impeachment and ultimately his potential removal from office. This is, clearly, a hypothetical scenario. But while Democrats remain divided on whether to pursue impeachment ahead of the 2020 election, Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y.
Key point: Israel's adversaries have taken notice, and Middle Eastern states are not reacting kindly to Israeli airstrikes on their territories. Israel's F-35 stealth fighters are positively supernatural: here, there and everywhere. In 2018, the Israeli Air Force claimed its new F-35s had attacked Iranian targets in Syria.
Students at Liberty University in Virginia gathered Friday to protest in the wake of news reports containing allegations that school president Jerry Falwell Jr. improperly benefited from the institution and disparaged students in emails. Students joined together at the private evangelical university known for being an influential hub in conservative politics and held up signs calling for accountability and an investigation. Elizabeth Brooks, a junior majoring in politics and policy, told The Associated Press by phone that a recent Politico Magazine story as well as a Reuters report prompted the protest at the school in Lynchburg.
ROME—In 2009, the straight world swooned when archaeologists discovered two ancient skeletons from between the fourth and sixth centuries A.D. holding hands in a grave in Modena, Italy. When they were discovered, archeologists said the bones were in such a state of decay that the usual genetic-based methods used in confirming the biological sex of ancient remains was of no use. The individuals did not die in situ—their hands were placed holding each other's by whoever buried them, most likely to represent a relationship between the two people.
Steve Pankey, 68, told the Idaho Statesman on Thursday that authorities in Twin Falls, Idaho, served him a search warrant last week saying investigators had probable cause to believe he kidnapped and killed 12-year-old Jonelle Matthews, who went missing from her Greeley home on Dec. 20, 1984, after a Christmas choir concert. The Greeley Police Department did not respond to the Coloradoan's requests for comment Friday. The department said in a prepared statement Friday that law enforcement officers have never made a request to obtain Pankey's DNA.

Dr Moore-Gilbert, who was working as a lecturer and researcher for Melbourne University's Asia Institute and has published work on authoritarian governance and activism in the Middle East, was jailed in October 2018. However, her detention had not been reported in case it harmed the prospects of her release.
Each candidate said they wanted to expand health insurance to the vast majority of Americans, for example, but Mr Biden and Ms Harris expressed support for a public option while Mr Sanders and Ms Warren took on a Medicare-for-All stance (Mr Buttigieg falls somewhere in between with a “Medicare-for-All who want it” plan, as he described it). Reducing carbon emissions, lowering prescription drug prices, achieving universal access to a quality education, ending the president's trade wars: these are all staples of every Democratic presidential platform.
Tropical Storm Humberto lashed the Bahamas with rain and wind on Saturday, possibly slowing down relief efforts in the wake of the devastation wrought less than two weeks ago by Hurricane Dorian. The US National Hurricane Center said the center of the storm, packing maximum sustained winds of 60 miles (95 kilometers) per hour, was passing Saturday evening about 85 miles north of Great Abaco Island, one of the areas hardest hit by Dorian. Humberto was moving away from the Bahamas on a path taking it well off the east coast of Florida this weekend and early next week, the NHC said.

Chris Van Hollen, D-Md. and 19 other prominent Democrats express concern about “likely efforts by the Trump administration to circumvent congressional intent in funding decisions for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in Fiscal Year 2020.

PROSPECT PARK, N.J. – Muslim Americans say they've been singled out, detained and interrogated at airports – and elected officials are no exception. Mohamed Khairullah, the longtime mayor of Prospect Park, said he was held for three hours at JFK International Airport in New York last month, questioned about whether he knew any terrorists and forced to hand over his phone. “It was definitely a hurtful moment where I'm thinking in my mind that this is not the America that I know,” said Khairullah, a public school administrator.
