    WASHINGTON -- The top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee charged that President Trump's United Nations speech ripping the "embarrassment" Iran deal could have killed any chance for a peaceful solution with North Korea over its nuclear weapons program. "The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea. Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime," Trump declared in his first address to the world body in New York. Trump, who said Monday...

    IBM CEO Ginni Rometty is in D.C. urging Congress to save DACA Two weeks after President Donald Trump moved to eliminate a program that protects some young immigrants from deportation, IBM chief executive Ginni Rometty is visiting Capitol Hill to urge lawmakers to save it. As part of a swing through Washington, D.C., this week, Rometty has met with Senate Democrats and Republicans in a bid to get them to preserve Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, from phasing out beginning in March. The initiative, implemented in 2012, had allowed children brought to the United States illegally to obtain...

    A Palestinian convicted terrorist with a decades-old record of bombings in Jerusalem will be deported from Chicago to Jordan on Tuesday, her spokesman said. Supporters and community activists plan to gather at O’Hare Airport’s international terminal before Rasmea Odeh, 70, departs for Jordan, said Hatem Abudayyeh, coordinator of her defense committee. Odeh pleaded guilty in April to concealing her convictions when she applied for US citizenship in Detroit in 2004. Her record would have disqualified her from entering the US a decade earlier. In 1970, Odeh was convicted of two bombings in Jerusalem, including one that killed two young men...

    ....What happens when you deport people who spent their formative years in the United States? Scholars who have documented the consequences of deporting people who grew up in the United States compare the pratice to “violent dismemberment,” calling it “destructive and inhumane” and “tragic.” Deportees who grew up in the United States experience their arrival to Mexico as such a profound loss that they often compare it to death. Thoughts of suicide are markedly higher among deportees with strong ties to the U.S. than among the rest of the deported population. Deported Dreamers also face social stigma in Mexico. They...

    Making American great again, in the view of the man who made that phrase a campaign slogan, means making the world understand that America is redefining the way it is seeking out that greatness. That means absorbing the boasts, name-calling, and contradictions embedded in President Trump’s first address to the United Nations. In a speech aimed at his own base as much as anything else, Trump delivered harsh warnings as well as complaints aimed at Iran, Syria, Venezuela, Cuba and Islamic terrorists. What the United Nations has not been about is such explicit tough-guy talk, reminiscent of Trump campaign rallies...

    'Why they did not kill me, why they didn't tie my hands, I don't know,' he said. Describing his 18-month ordeal, Father Tom Uzhannalil told reporters in Rome he still did not know why he was not killed. Using the only Arabic he knew, the priest said he told his captors: 'Ana hindiin' ("I am Indian").' He said: 'Perhaps they wanted some ransom or whatever it is. I only believe that maybe God had put that into their heads when I said, "I am Indian" and they made me sit there while they killed the others, the Sisters.' Father Tom...

    That news you read about Donald Trump ordering his steak doused in ketchup—that’s fake news. Or at least that’s what David Burke, the New York chef who runs BLT Prime inside the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., says. While the president does in fact prefer his steak well-done, Burke says that ketchup was “probably for a side of French fries,” not his dry-aged New York strip... Q: Let’s talk about the steak order heard around the world. In February, President Trump came here and ordered his steak well-done and with ketchup. What was your reaction? Well, first off he...

    This morning Ed wrote about the anticipated (and delivered) crash and burn of the ratings for last night’s Emmys. I suppose I contributed to that in a small way since I was watching football. In my Twitter feed, I only saw two of the conservatives I follow commenting on the show so that seemed to be a fairly common practice among our tribe. The initial scoring put them in position to be one of the worst rated Emmys outings of the modern era. This led a few timid voices to meekly suggest this morning that just perhaps the show needs...

    Hidden Americans ^ | 09/19/2017 | Richard Saunders
    A new Obamacare repeal bill written by Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham (S.C.) and Bill Cassidy (La.) has until the end of the month to pass in the senate. The bill would block grant about $500 billion of federal spending to the states over 10 years to either repeal, repair or keep their ObamaCare programs. The senators see the bill as a way to bridge the divide as they try to put together a bill that can muster 50 votes in the senate. The bill would repeal ObamaCare's individual and employer mandates, but keep insurer regulations protecting people with pre-existing conditions....

    The Federalist ^ | September 19, 2017 | By David Harsanyi
    Journalism is in crisis. After some much-needed self-examination, however, reporters are finally beginning to figure out why many Americans are souring on their industry: They’ve been too critical of the Democratic Party. The trend was evident in 2016, when media outlets decided to focus on Hillary Clinton’s corruption, favor trading, and subsequent cover-up attempts. As any journalism professor could tell you, the purpose of reporting is to answer basic questions, like Who? What? When? Where? Why? And does this story help bolster the chances of the Democratic Party’s candidate or not? New York Times reporter Amy Chozick, who covered Clinton...

    Authorities in Bilbao are under fire for distributing advice on how to safely snort cocaine.The cards were distributed to people singled out as users or potential users during week-long festivities last month, a spokesman for the department told AFP. "We didn't hand them out to just anyone," he said, adding that each recipient was warned about the dangers of drugs. News of the controversial campaign emerged this week, sparking criticism from the conservative Popular Party in Bilbao.
