House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff said impeachment “may be the only remedy” if President Trump pressured Ukraine to investigate one of his 2020 opponents, Democratic presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden. “If the president is essentially withholding military aid at the same time that he is trying to browbeat a foreign leader into doing something illicit that is providing dirt on his opponent during a presidential campaign, then that may be the only remedy that is coequal to the evil that conduct represents,” said Schiff, D-Calif., on CNN's “State of the Union” Sunday. Days after news broke about an anonymous intelligence official who filed a whistleblower complaint involving a July 25 conversation between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, the Wall Street Journal reported that Trump urged Zelensky about eight times to investigate Biden's son Hunter, who sat on the board of a Ukrainian gas company when Biden served as vice president.
Skies over Indonesia turned a shade of blood red this weekend, leaving some locals frightened by their surroundings. The phenomenon, which occurred mainly in the nation's Jambi province, was caused by the ongoing forest fires that have endangered large parts of the country. Rayleigh scattering is the reason the sky usually appears blue, but in this case, particles released by the fires turned everything a deep, dark red.

French President Emmanuel Macron has annoyed Poland and irritated France's climate activists by urging them to move their protests from Paris to Poland, a European Union nation that is heavily dependent on coal.

The country has a long tradition of coal mining, a major employer that offers tens of thousands of jobs in the southern Silesia region.
Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador on Monday praised a historian whose comments about the killers of a prominent industrialist in the 1970s sparked an angry response from a top business lobby and other corporate leaders. Last week, Pedro Salmeron, head of the National Institute of Historical Studies of the Revolutions of Mexico (INEHRM), described the left-wing guerrillas who fatally shot Eugenio Garza Sada in 1973 as "courageous youths" in a blog post. Garza, an 81-year-old businessman from the northern city of Monterrey, was killed along with several others when resisting a failed kidnapping attempt by members of a group known as the Liga Comunista 23 de Septiembre (September 23 Communist League).

Appearing Monday on the Fox Business Network, Napolitano—who warned in June that Trump was “prepared to commit a felony to get re-elected—was asked by host David Asman about the ongoing controversy surrounding a whistleblower's complaint surrounding Trump's communications with Ukraine. “Who is in more trouble here,” Asman declared.
The US and Saudi Arabia are searching for a "smoking gun" among the wreckage of weapons that they hope will definitively link Iran to the weapons used in the attack last weekend on Saudi oil facilities, The Wall Street Journal reported Sunday. Inspectors and weapons experts are reportedly looking over recovered GPS technology with the goal of obtaining critical information on the flight paths and origins of the drones and missiles used to carry out the attacks. The US has publicly blamed Iran, and Saudi Arabia has said the attacks were "unquestionably sponsored by Iran." More may be needed, however, to build an international coalition against Iran, something that has been a US priority for months now.
Large-deck, nuclear-powered aircraft carriers are the signature expression of American military power. No other combat system available to U.S. warfighters comes close to delivering so much offensive punch for months at a time without requiring land bases near the action. As a result, the ten carriers in the current fleet are in continuous demand from regional commanders -- so much so that extended overseas combat tours are becoming the norm. Nobody really doubts the utility of large-deck carriers. There's nothing else like them, and the United States is the only nation that operates a fleet big enough to keep three or more carriers continuously deployed at all times. However, two issues have come up over and over again since the Cold War ended that have led at least some observers to question why carriers are the centerpiece of America's naval fleet. One concern is that they cost too much. The other is that they are vulnerable to attack.
For more than a century, motorised vehicles have been banned from Mackinac Island in Michigan - giving the former Revolutionary War battle site a unique charm and turning it into a tourist haven. The ban is so strictly enforced that when President Gerald Ford visited in 1975, he and first lady Betty Ford travelled by horse-drawn carriage. Mr Pence was on the island to speak at the Michigan Republican Party's leadership conference, the first ever sitting vice president to address it in its 60-year history.
