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.
Mind you, neither the Times nor the Post claims to have been told by any grand jurors that they declined to indict McCabe; nor do they report hearing from any knowledgeable government official that a no true bill was voted. Nevertheless, McCabe's legal team is demanding that the Justice Department disclose whether an indictment was declined and refrain from seeking an indictment in the future. This gambit, of course, floats the narrative that the case against McCabe must be crumbling — the media reports spur the Bromwich letter, which spur more media reports, rinse and repeat.
US officials have warned that feral hogs heading across the border from Canada may pose a danger to the local environment. The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) reported that sightings of the feral animals on the US-Canadian border have increased in recent years. At least eight of the wild animals have been sighted just north of Lincoln County, Montana, this summer, officials said.
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.

The White House announced Saturday that Hamza bin Laden , the son of the late al-Qaida leader who had become an increasingly prominent figure in the terrorist organization, was killed in a U.S. counterterrorism operation in the Afghanistan-Pakistan region. A statement issued in President Donald Trump's name gave no further details, such as when Hamza bin Laden was killed or how the United States had confirmed his death. Administration officials would provide no more information beyond the three-sentence statement from the White House.
The El Paso native has fought President Trump's negative portrayal of the border city, but what do residents really think of their hometown presidential hopeful?
A federal appeals court on Friday revived a lawsuit against Fox News brought by the parents of slain Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich, concluding there are plausible claims that the conservative cable network was party to a “campaign of emotional torture. The long-awaited opinion by a three-judge panel in New York, reversing a lower court ruling, opens the door for the lawyers representing Seth Rich's parents, Joel and Mary Rich, to obtain internal documents and depose top Fox News executives about a May 16, 2017, story falsely alleging that the DNC staff member had leaked internal party emails to WikiLeaks prior to his murder.
It came after Thursday's third primary debate on national TV when rival nominee Julian Castro, 44, appeared to play the age card by suggesting Mr Biden – who would be 78 when he took office – was confused about his own health care proposals. "Are you forgetting what you said two minutes ago?" Mr Castro asked repeatedly while accusing Mr Biden – wrongly – of becoming mixed up about his own health insurance proposals. Cory Booker, another younger nominee at 50, went on record after the debate to say there were "a lot of people who are concerned about Joe Biden's ability to carry the ball all the way across the end line without fumbling".
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.
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.
The Justice Department on Friday flatly rejected House Democrats' claim that they're in the midst of an “impeachment investigation” into President Donald Trump, pointing to the scattershot messaging by Democratic leaders in recent days — even citing Speaker Nancy Pelosi's reluctance to use the term at a news conference just a day ago. In a new court filing on Friday, Justice Department lawyers argued that the House Judiciary Committee's effort to obtain former special counsel Robert Mueller's most sensitive secrets — evidence and testimony collected by a grand jury — should be denied, in part because House Democrats can't agree on what to call their investigation. “Most prominently, the speaker of the House has been emphatic that the investigation is not a true impeachment proceeding,” the lawyers wrote, citing Pelosi's June statement that Democrats were “not even close” to such a move.
A British-Australian woman who has been sentenced to 10 years in a notorious Iranian prison has been identified as Dr Kylie Moore-Gilbert, a Cambridge-educated academic specialising in Middle Eastern politics. 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.
South Africa's President Cyril Ramaphosa was jeered and whistled at on Saturday during his speech at Zimbabwe ex-leader Robert Mugabe's funeral before he apologised for recent xenophobic attacks. At least 12 people have been killed this month in a surge in violence and mob attacks against foreign-owned businesses in and around Johannesburg, South Africa's largest city. A wave of jeers, boos and whistles interrupted Ramaphosa at the Harare national stadium as he started his eulogy at the state funeral for Mugabe, who died age 95 last week.
WICHITA, Kan. (AP) An Ohio gamer upset about a $1.50 bet while playing Call of Duty: WWII online was sentenced Friday to 15 months in prison for recruiting a prankster to make a bogus emergency call that resulted in the fatal shooting of a Kansas man by police. Casey Viner, 19, of North College Hill, Ohio, also is restricted from gaming activity for two years while he is on supervised release after serving his prison term, U.S. District Judge Eric Melgren said in announcing the sentence. Viner repeatedly gulped and appeared crestfallen as the judge announced his sentencing decision.
Conservative commentator and Fox Nation host Tomi Lahren apologized on Twitter for remarks she made after a Democratic presidential candidate called her out. "Disgusting, anti-immigrant rhetoric from @TomiLahren in the wake of El Paso," tweeted Julián Castro, who is a former Obama cabinet official. Castro, a Texas native, was referring to comments Lahren made on the topic of gun control on Fox Business Network, implying that armed Americans would have to shoot people coming across the border.
Turkey has ordered the arrest of 223 serving military personnel across the country and in the breakaway state of Northern Cyprus over suspected links to a network Ankara accuses of organizing an attempted coup in 2016, state media said on Saturday. Authorities are seeking the suspects across 49 provinces in Turkey and in Northern Cyprus, state broadcaster TRT Haber said. Ankara blames U.S.-based Muslim cleric Fethullah Gulen, who has lived in self-imposed exile in Pennsylvania since 1999, of masterminding the failed putsch on July 15, 2016.
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. It was submitted months before August 2017's “Unite the Right” rally, which saw hundreds of white supremacists descend on the city.
Well what do we have here, bargain hunters? There was a time not too long ago when Apple products almost never went on sale, let alone brand new Apple products. Head over to Amazon and you'll find the new 7th-Generation Apple iPad with 128GB of storage on sale for $399.99, a healthy $30 discount from the $430 you'll pay if you preorder it from Apple.
About last night In a likely preview of Republican messaging for the 2020 election, an ad from a GOP PAC that aired during Thursday night's Democratic debate showed a photograph of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. with her face engulfed in flames. The ad from the New Faces PAC, a group with the self-described mission of broadening the GOP's appeal to youth, minorities and women, is narrated by Elizabeth Heng, a Republican who lost a California congressional race in 2018.
Gibraltar's leader attempted to deescalate the crisis with Iran over the fate of an oil tanker on Friday, saying it was “difficult to see” whether Tehran breached an agreement not to sell its oil to Syria. Iran made assurances to a court in Gibraltar that it would not deliver the seized supertanker's two million barrels of crude oil to the Syrian regime in order to secure its release. After it was freed on Aug 18, the renamed Adrian Darya 1 sailed around the eastern Mediterranean for over a week before heading towards the Syrian coast and turning off its transponder on Sept 2. Iran claims it sold the oil to an unnamed private company.
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.
