    The Atlantic ^ | 09/15/2017 | David Graham
    or the second time in a month, President Trump has rushed to condemn a terrorist attack abroad as the work of Islamist terrorists, speaking out before the facts are known even to local officials. Trump’s remarks came just a day after he once again insisted he was right to cast blame on both sides after violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, in August. And they renew the question of why he is so quick to speak with such clarity in cases involving Islamist terrorism and yet so deliberate and equivocating in a clash involving white supremacists. Within hours of an apparent attack...

    British Prime Minister Theresa May lashed out at President Trump for suggesting in a tweet that Friday’s London subway terrorist had been known to police. May said that his assertion was not “helpful” and that authorities were still investigating the “full circumstances” surrounding the attack, which injured at least 22 people. In his tweetstorm, Trump referred to the attacker as a “loser terrorist.” “These are sick and demented people who were in the sights of Scotland Yard. Must be proactive!” he said. “Loser terrorists must be dealt with in a much tougher manner. The internet is their main recruitment tool...

    Here we go again. Mass panic in a smoky, crowded space. Police cars and ambulances crowded into a taped-off city street. Men in body armor carrying automatic weapons. Dazed, bandaged civilians walking down the sidewalk. Declarations of resolve by political leaders who are determined not to give in to “terror”. The allahu akbarriers, Merkel legos, and Koran blocks are all in place, so this time the mujahideen abandoned their vehicles and returned to their perennial favorite, the subway bomb: During rush hour this morning a bucket bomb exploded on the Tube in London.

    The food and drink are on another level, from the signature drink, Fizu, upon arrival (sparkling sake, cucumber, and lemon oil), to my personal favourite, the Original Chang’s Chicken Lettuce Wraps and Dynamite Shrimp. It is a little spicy but maintains a perfect balance. I also had the zingy Orange Peel Lamb Chop. There is a great dessert selection for those with a sweet tooth like myself. The Gorgonzola Cheesecake is topped with sour cream and gorgonzola crumb which gives it a slight tang but is nicely balanced out with candied walnuts and a delicious mascarpone filled port poached pear....

    Ken Livingstone, a former mayor of London, has blamed the turmoil in Venezuela on Hugo Chávez’s unwillingness to execute “oligarchs” after he came to power. ... “One of the things that Chávez did when he came to power, he didn’t kill all the oligarchs. There was about 200 families who controlled about 80% of the wealth in Venezuela,” Livingstone told Talk Radio. “He allowed them to live, to carry on. I suspect a lot of them are using their power and control over imports and exports to make it difficult and to undermine Maduro.”
