    ‘It seems like a serious obsession’: Ilhan Omar on Trump, and her unapologetic support for Bernie Sanders

    At the same time, Omar, who was in New Hampshire campaigning for presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt. said she is not surprised to have Trump's attention. This has been a president that has used his energy in the most xenophobic, racist ways to mobilize a base that is understandably frightened about the kind of America they might have if we continue to build the kind of connected communities we're all excited about,” she said.

    Ex-Gov. Matt Bevin defends flurry of pardons as Kentucky lawmakers call for investigation

    Former Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin attacked the "highly offensive and entirely false" reports that financial or political considerations played a part in his pardon decision-making in a blast of 20 tweets late Friday afternoon. The more than 400 pardons and commutations, issued after his loss in November to Democrat Andy Beshear, included low-level drug offenders, as well as a man who was convicted of raping a 9-year-old in Kenton County, another who hired a hit man to kill his business partner, a man who killed his parents and a man who beheaded a woman before stuffing her in a barrel.

    2 children dead after being swept away in Arizona floodwaters

    Two children are dead and another is still missing after the vehicle they were traveling in was swept away in floodwaters in Arizona's Tonto Basin, the Gila County Sheriff's Office said Saturday.

    75 years on, Battle of the Bulge memories bond people

    THIMISTER-CLERMONT, Belgium (AP) — As a schoolboy three quarters of a century ago, Marcel Schmetz would regularly see open trucks rumble past to a makeshift American cemetery — filled with bodies, some headless, some limbless, blood seeping from the vehicles onto the roads that the U.S. soldiers had given their lives to liberate. Sometimes, Schmetz said, there were over 200bodies a day, casualties of one of the bloodiest and most important battles in World War II: The Battle of the Bulge which started 75 years ago on Monday and effectively sealed the defeat of Nazi Germany. ”It gave me nightmares," Schmetz said.

    Operation Plunder: How 1 Hellish Battle Slowed The Allies' Capture Of Nazi Germany

    January 1945—with World War II in its sixth year—found the Allied armies going on the offensive after the Battle of the Bulge, but they were still west of the Rhine and six weeks behind schedule in their advance toward Germany. Although U.S. and French units of Lt. Gen. Jacob L. Devers' Sixth Army Group had reached the western bank around Strasbourg in late 1944, the river proved too difficult to cross. The key to eventual victory lay in the central and northern Rhineland, but three factors delayed an advance: the failure of Operation Market Garden, the British-American airborne invasion of Holland, the onset of an extremely wet autumn and harsh winter, and the unexpectedly rapid recovery of the German Army in the wake of recent Allied advances.

    Bolivia's interim leader says arrest warrant to be issued against Morales

    Bolivia will issue an arrest warrant in the coming days against former leftist President Evo Morales, accusing him of sedition, interim Bolivian President Jeanine Anez said on Saturday. Morales is in Argentina, granted refugee status this week just days after the inauguration of new President Alberto Fernandez. Peronist Fernandez succeeded outgoing conservative Argentine leader Mauricio Macri, who lost his bid for re-election in October.

    Kamala Harris flames out: Black people didn't trust her, and they were wise not to

    Even though Barack Obama surprisingly won Iowa in 2008, Harris struggled to gain support in the small, mostly white state whose African American population is a whopping 3.8%. All that may be true, but it misses the most important part of the story. It was one thing for Harris to receive little to no support from whites in Iowa, but how could the fact that blacks in South Carolina (and beyond) weren't excited about her either be explained?

    Decades on, Soviet bombs still killing people in Afghanistan

    Gholam Mahaiuddin sighs softly as he thinks of his 14-year-old son, who was killed in the spring by a bomb dropped last century in the hills of Bamiyan province in central Afghanistan. "We knew the mountain was dangerous," said Mahaiuddin, who found his son's remains after he didn't come home one day. Forty years after the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan -- and three decades since the conflict ended -- the war's legacy continues to claim lives across the country.

    Italian city evacuated as World War Two-era British bomb is defused

    Italian authorities ordered the biggest peacetime evacuation in the country since World War Two on Sunday to defuse a massive unexploded British bomb that was partially damaged when discovered in the southern city of Brindisi. The historic evacuation displaced some 53,000 residents  —more than half — of the coastal city on the Adriatic,  due to the high risk that the 440-pound ordnance containing 40 kilograms of dynamite could explode. The bomb is believed to have been dropped on the city in a 1941 air raid, during the period of World War Two when Italy was still allied with Germany and Royal Air Force  bombers based in Malta were targeting Naples, Brindisi and Bari in order to disrupt Axis shipping lanes.

    McConnell, Coordinating With White House, Lays Plans for Impeachment Trial

    With the House headed to a vote to impeach President Donald Trump next week, Sen. Mitch McConnell was working hand in hand with the White House to make plans for a Senate trial, a proceeding steeped in tradition and rules, but one fraught with political peril for vulnerable Republicans. McConnell, R-Ky., the majority leader, has resisted that idea in favor of a shorter, more dignified event. Outraged Democrats, meanwhile, accused McConnell on Friday of abandoning his duty to render “impartial justice” in an impeachment trial — a response to a television interview in which McConnell dismissed House Democrats' articles of impeachment as “so darn weak.” He added that he was “taking my cues” from the White House in shaping the trial.

    Supreme Court to decide Native American land dispute in Oklahoma

    WASHINGTON – The Supreme Court agreed for the second time Friday to decide whether much of Oklahoma remains Native American territory, a ruling that could plunge the state into what it has called "civil, criminal and regulatory turmoil." The justices will hear an appeal from Jimcy McGirt, a member of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation, who claims his state rape conviction from 1997 should be overturned because of the jurisdictional dispute. His case is similar to one the high court heard last term but failed to decide – presumably because the justices were deadlocked, 4-4, without Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch's participation.

    Shooting shows New Jersey's gun laws aren't stopping imports

    Officials from states with strong gun restrictions have called for stricter firearm control in places with weaker laws to thwart traffickers, but the fatal attack on a Jewish market in New Jersey shows how fruitless those efforts can be. Three civilians and a police officer were gunned down Tuesday by two killers with anti-Semitic and anti-law enforcement beliefs, the state's attorney general said. The attackers carried five firearms and a pipe bomb in the U-Haul van they drove to the Jersey City Jewish market before opening fire, officials said.

    Is Congress Set to Open U.S. Banks to Drug Cartels?

    Last month, the House of Representatives passed a bill known as the SAFE Banking Act, a seemingly innocuous bill offering the nascent, state-legal marijuana industry access to banks. Interestingly, many House Republicans who claim to oppose marijuana legalization voted in support of the bill. Whatever their excuse may be, some House Republicans were hoodwinked in supporting this policy, and drug traffickers and cartel bosses naturally rejoiced.

    Zimbabwean authorities arrested the wife of Vice President Constantino Chiwenga on charges of money laundering, fraud and violating exchange control regulations, the country's anti Corruption Commission (ZACC) said on Sunday. Marry Mubaiwa was arrested on Saturday evening and will likely appear in court on Monday, ZACC spokesman John Makamure said. Appointed by President Emmerson Mnangagwa this year, ZACC is under pressure to show that it can tackle high-level graft, which watchdog Transparency International estimates is costing the country $1 billion annually.

    New Zealand eruption death toll rises to 18

    The death toll from New Zealand's White Island volcano eruption rose to 18 Sunday, including two people whose bodies have not been recovered, police said. A land search Sunday failed to find any sign of the missing pair and divers returned to the sea in the afternoon amid increasing speculation both could be in the water. Deputy police commissioner Mike Clement said there was "every chance" the bodies had been washed into the sea from the stream where they were last seen Monday.

    Pawn shop operator Ahmed A-Hady arrested as Jersey City shooting investigation expands

    KEYPORT, N.J. – A pawn shop operator here was arrested on a weapons charge and a van was seized in a town 30 miles away as authorities expanded their investigation into last week's Jersey City shooting rampage now viewed as an act of domestic terrorism. The white van recovered in the New Jersey city of Orange, 10 miles northwest of Jersey City, was being examined for evidence related to the attack that left six people dead, including the shooters, the FBI said. Also Saturday, Ahmed A-Hady, 35, was arrested on one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm. U.S. Attorney Craig Carpenito said in a statement that the FBI seized several weapons and over 400 rounds of ammunition during searches of the Buy N Sell City and A-Hady's home.

    Iran Demands $6 Billion Oil Payment From South Korea: Chosun

    Iran's Foreign Ministry called in the South Korean ambassador last month to demand payment of 7 trillion won ($6 billion) for oil it sold to the Asian country, Chosun Ilbo reported, citing officials it didn't identify. Iran expressed “strong regret” over Seoul's failure to complete the payment, which has been deposited at two South Korean banks without being transferred to Iran's central bank for years due to U.S. sanctions against the Middle Eastern country, the newspaper said. It added that other Iranian authorities including the central bank also complained.

    Purdue Pharma’s foreign affiliate now selling overdose cure

    Some conference attendees were stunned when they saw the company logo: Mundipharma, the international affiliate of Purdue Pharma — the maker of the blockbuster opioid, OxyContin, widely blamed for unleashing the American overdose epidemic. “You're in the business of selling medicine that causes addiction and overdoses, and now you're in the business of selling medicine that treats addiction and overdoses?” asked Dr. Andrew Kolodny, an outspoken critic of Purdue who has testified against the company in court. As Purdue Pharma buckles under a mountain of litigation and public protest in the United States, its foreign affiliate, Mundipharma, has expanded abroad, using some of the same tactics to sell the addictive opioids that made its owners, the Sackler family, among the richest in the world.

    Key Point: Internal documents reveal the mindset of the PLA is offensive, specifically against the U.S. In December 2017, the U.S. Government published a new National Security Strategy. This remarkable document referred to the People's Republic of China (PRC) as a "revisionist power" that sought "to shape a world antithetical to U.S. values and interests." One month later, in January 2018, the Pentagon released the unclassified version of its National Defense Strategy, which stated that "China is a strategic competitor." Thanks to these documents, we now know how the American military―and the broader national security community―officially views China.

    Joe Biden gets boost in polls ahead of next Democratic primary debate

    Joe Biden remains a clear frontrunner in the Democratic presidential primaries, after the former vice president received a welcome boost ahead of the party's sixth primary debate. Mr Biden has meanwhile regained his lead against Mr Buttigieg and Ms Warren in Iowa, surpassing the 37-year-old mayor — who was previously the top contender in the state — by a point in the latest Emerson College poll released last week. While he appears to be the frontrunner in virtually all national polls conducted in December, he could face declining support in key states like South Carolina, where Bernie Sanders has gained momentum in recent weeks and is now in second place, as The Hill noted on Sunday.

    China suspends planned tariffs scheduled for Dec. 15 on some U.S. goods

    China has suspended additional tariffs on some U.S. goods that were meant to be implemented on Dec. 15, the State Council's customs tariff commission said on Sunday, after the world's two largest economies agreed a "phase one" trade deal on Friday. The deal, rumours and leaks over which have gyrated world markets for months, reduces some U.S. tariffs in exchange for what U.S. officials said would be a big jump in Chinese purchases of American farm products and other goods. China's retaliatory tariffs, which were due to take effect on Dec. 15, were meant to target goods ranging from corn and wheat to U.S. made vehicles and auto parts.
