    The United Nations has called on Israel to back down after it advanced the construction of more than 2,300 housing units for Judea and Samaria communities. “The expansion of settlements has no legal effect and constitutes a flagrant violation of international law,” United Nations Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process Nickolay Mladenov said in a statement Wednesday. “By advancing the effective annexation of the West Bank, it undermines the chances for establishing a Palestinian state based on relevant UN resolutions, as part of a negotiated two-state solution.” Israeli construction “must cease immediately and completely,” he demanded. The plan...

The announcement, which Mr. Trump made on his Twitter feed, said the tariffs would be in place “until such time as illegal migrants coming...

    Quick question to law enforcement FReepers. I'm writing a novel, sci fi romance yada yada, and I have a scene I'm trying to write where the hero is borrowing a motorcycle to meet a friend, and on the way back from the secret meeting, an officer pulls him over for speeding.

Now, the hero here is a fish out of water. He's a time traveler from ancient...
