    House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) threatened to hold former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski in contempt of Congress because of his "refusal to answer questions" relating to the Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report. "Mr. Lewandowski, your behavior in this hearing room has been completely unacceptable. It is part of a pattern of a White House desperate for the American people not to hear the truth," Nadler said. “I’ve been asked several times today whether the Committee will hold you in contempt. It is certainly under consideration." "There is a far more troubling level of contempt on display here...

    Putin offers to sell Saudi Arabia its missile defense systems in the wake of the attack on its oil facilities. We are ready to help Saudi Arabia so that she can protect her territory, he says. She can do so in the same way that Iran has already done in buying the S-300 Russian missile system and the same way that Turkey has already done in buying the S-400 Russian missile system, Putin adds at a press conference in Ankara, alongside the Turkish and Iranian leaders. The US has blamed Iran for the attack on the Saudi oil facilities.

    A weekend drone attack on Saudi Arabia that cut into global energy supplies and halved the kingdoms oil production threatened Sunday to fuel a regional crisis, as the U.S. released new evidence to back up its allegation that Iran was responsible for the assault amid heightened tensions over Tehrans collapsing nuclear deal. President Donald Trump said the U.S. had reason to believe it knew who was behind the attack his secretary of state had blamed Iran the previous day and assured his Twitter followers that we are ... locked and loaded depending on verification and were waiting to...

    (Moderator, if I can't excerpt the BBC, please note) Drone attacks have set alight two major oil facilities run by the state-owned company Aramco in Saudi Arabia, state media say. Footage showed a huge blaze at Abqaiq, site of Aramco's largest oil processing plant, while a second drone attack started fires in the Khurais oilfield. The fires are now under control at both facilities, state media said. A spokesman for the Iran-aligned Houthi group in Yemen said it had deployed 10 drones in the attacks. The military spokesman, Yahya Sarea, told al-Masirah TV, which is owned by the Houthi movement...
  • Kamala Harris: My EO Seizing Assault Weapons Would Be Constitutional Because "Yes We Can"

    Joe Biden had attempted to inject some sanity in the Democratic debate over gun control by noting that presidents dont have the authority in the Constitution to order seizures of firearms and banning guns. Harris, a former AG, literally laughed off that concern when ABC News anchor David Muir asked her about it Kamala Harris replied to Biden's claim that her proposed exec order would be unconstitutional by *laughing* and blithely saying "instead of saying no we can't, how about yes we can". HARRIS: Well, I mean, I would just say, hey, Joe, instead of saying, no, we cant, lets...

    Joe Biden once again took the germ of a good idea and botched it by reductioing his own absurdum. ABC News correspondent Linsey Davis challenged Biden on his criminal justice reform plans to release inmates convicted of drug use, referring to criticisms from Cory Booker that Bidens plan wont go far enough. Oh yeah, Biden seemed to say? He began expanding his vision of reform until it reached the stage where nobody should be in jail for a nonviolent crime.

    McCabe has indicated that, if charged, he would claim the Justice Department was under pressure from the White House. Federal prosecutors in Washington have recommended that criminal charges be filed against Andrew McCabe, the FBIs former deputy director, and the Justice Department has rejected a last-ditch appeal by McCabes lawyers, according to a report on Thursday by Fox News. This clears the way for what appears to be McCabes imminent indictment.

    Many years ago, the then chief of a very major US business shared his thoughts with me in respect of the British Establishment. He said that a major problem with the UK is that it is still controlled by holders of assets, in particular land, at inflated prices and that the economy was run accordingly. As a consequence, the incentives to be enterprising and to work hard were diminished. He was particularly struck by how successful the British Establishment had been at keeping a grip on their privilege. A week after I resigned as head of the British Chambers of...
