Authorities in Puerto Rico have issued a search warrant against the US territory's governor and 11 other men who exchanged derogatory chat messages mocking gays, hurricane victims and others, officials said Tuesday -- the latest twist in a scandal engulfing the island's leadership. The release of those chats two weeks ago helped trigger huge demonstrations demanding the resignation of Governor Ricardo Rossello, with hundreds of thousands taking to the streets of San Juan. The search warrant was issued Monday, said Kelvin Carrasco of the Puerto Rico Justice Department.
A group of U.S. House Democrats on Tuesday unveiled a climate change plan they said featured a "more realistic" goal to cut carbon emissions to net zero by 2050 rather than by 2030 as envisioned under the Green New Deal introduced early this year. Solar and wind companies have criticized the Green New Deal, introduced by Democratic Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Senator Edward Markey in February, as unrealistic and politically divisive. Representatives Frank Pallone, Paul Tonko, Bobby Rush and others said on Tuesday they would draw up legislation late this year that aimed to avoid the worst effects of climate change including intense droughts, storms and floods.
Hong Kong police say they've arrested six men, some with links to triad gangs, following a violent attack on pro-democracy protesters at a subway station over the weekend that saw dozens injured. Senior police official Chan Tin-chu said the men, aged 24-54, were held for "unlawful assembly" and are being investigated for taking part in the attack late Sunday night. Police are still investigating the motive for the attack, Chan said, without providing further details on the alleged links to the triads, which refer to powerful organized crime syndicates in Hong Kong.
But on a recent submarine dive shark expert Gavin Naylor caught amazing footage of one on camera cozying up to his research vessel, seeming to almost flirt and play with the vessel. "I'm literally nose to nose with this animal," Naylor, who does research at the Florida Museum of Natural History, told Live Science, referring to his trip in a submersible. Bluntnose sixgills are the oldest living shark lineage, said Dean Grubbs, a deep-sea ecologist at the Florida Museum of Natural History.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders made an appearance Sunday at an exclusive Republican Governors Association-hosted retreat, further stoking anticipation that the former White House press secretary may pursue a bid for statewide office. Sanders, who is seen as a possible 2022 Arkansas gubernatorial candidate, attended a dinner hosted by the family of the late Fred Malek, a major GOP donor and former RGA finance chairman who died in March. The dinner kicked off a two-day retreat the RGA is hosting in Aspen, Colo., which is expected to draw an array of GOP governors and donors.
The “MAGA Bomber” who mailed explosives to President Donald Trump's critics turned violent on a steady diet of Fox News, Trump tweets, and Facebook, his lawyers claim. Cesar Sayoc, 57, previously pleaded guilty to sending 16 pipe bombs to news outlets and public figures in October. On social media, Sayoc promoted far-right conspiracy theories and threatened people who were critical of Trump.
North Korea released a number of images of Kim Jong-un inspecting a new submarine. The images show the North Korean leader touring what appears to be a submarine in drydock, under construction.

University of Pennsylvania law professor Amy Wax sparked a backlash last week when she claimed the United States should favor Western immigrants over non-Western immigrants in comments at a conservative conference. The claims were quickly described as racist by critics, with alumni urging the Ivy League law school to fire the tenured professor. “Embracing cultural distance, cultural distance nationalism, means in effect taking the position that our country will be better off with more whites than non-whites,” BuzzFeed News reported Wax saying.
Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders's campaign staffers are demanding wages of at least $15 hourly, but a campaign strategist is calling that prospect “ridiculous,” saying productivity would have to be cut to stay within budget. “I'm very proud to be the first presidential candidate to recognize a union and negotiate a union contract,” he told the Des Moines Register on Friday.
Two Australian clubbers arrested in Bali for cocaine possession were paraded in front of local media Tuesday as they faced a possible 12-year jail term, police said.

Police said they found a bag with 1.1 grams of cocaine in Cabantog's trousers during the raid.
What we previously spied (and thought was the Escalade) is probably the next GMC Yukon's interior. Last month, we brought you what we thought were spy photos of the upcoming next-gen Cadillac Escalade's interior. While almost everything is covered up, we can see a large curved screen that seems to be part of one giant piece that also includes the digital gauge cluster in front of the driver.
Iran has threatened to cut its imports from Brazil unless it allows the refueling of at least two Iranian ships stranded off the Brazilian coast, in a sign of the global repercussions of U.S. sanctions on the Islamic republic. Iran's ambassador in Brasilia, Seyed Ali Saghaeyan, told Brazilian officials on Tuesday that his country could easily find new suppliers of corn, soybeans and meat if the South American country refuses to permit the refueling of the vessels. Brazil exports around $2 billion to Iran a year, mostly commodities like corn, meat and sugar.
One of the most beautiful, under-the-radar things I have seen in the passing political frenzies of the summer thus far was one doctor's response to the upheaval at Planned Parenthood: “I am an Obgyn like you, and I just wanted to say how sorry I am for your loss. Dr. Monique Ruberu reached out to Dr. Leana Wen after news hit that Wen was no longer the president of Planned Parenthood. The news came not too long after Wen had an op-ed published by the Washington Post explaining that her recent miscarriage made her more committed to her Planned Parenthood work.
"This would be one of the easiest drugs busts the New South Wales Police has ever made," a police official said.

A day before Robert Mueller's eagerly anticipated congressional testimony, a senior Democratic U.S. lawmaker on Tuesday accused President Donald Trump's Justice Department of arrogance in instructing the former special counsel to limit the scope of his remarks and said it lacked the authority for such a directive. On Wednesday, Mueller is scheduled to appear at back-to-back hearings before the Democratic-led House of Representatives Judiciary and Intelligence committees to discuss his inquiry into Russia's role in the 2016 U.S. election, contacts between the Trump campaign and Moscow, and the Republican president's efforts to impede the investigation.
The wreckage of a French submarine missing for more than 50 years has been discovered almost 30 miles from the vessel's home port of Toulon, the country's defense minister said Monday.

Search crews failed to find the sub immediately after it went missing.

Chris White Climate, Could it work? House Democrats rolled out a climate agenda Tuesday as their caucus attempts to draw a distinction between New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's approach to tackling global warming and a more moderate plan. Democrats on the Energy and Commerce Committee announced they would pursue legislation calling for net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, a far less ambitious plan than the Green New Deal, which aims to complete the emissions target by 2030.
The savage beating of Hong Kong protesters by a mob of triad gangsters has deepened fears about the city's notorious criminal gangs and the use of shadowy hired muscle to defend China's interests. At least 45 people were hospitalised after Sunday's attack when men armed with poles and rods assaulted anti-government protesters in the rural town of Yuen Long as they returned from another huge rally. For seasoned watchers of Hong Kong and its shadowy nexus of organised crime, the brazen beatings came as little surprise.
Russia wants an investigation into a South Korean announcement that one of its military planes violated South Korea's airspace, a senior lawmaker said Wednesday citing, Russia's acting ambassador. Seoul said South Korean fighter jets fired 360 rounds of warning shots to drive away the Russian reconnaissance plane that entered its airspace off South Korea's east coast twice Tuesday during a joint patrol with Chinese bombers. Yoon Sang-hyun, chairman of the South Korean parliament's Foreign Affairs Committee, quoted Russia's Acting Ambassador Maxim Volkov as telling him that Russia feels "regrettable" over the incident.
