    It’s no secret that tensions between Washington and Tehran have been tense since Trump’s inauguration in 2016, recent developments indicate that a potential joint Israel/US strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities could be closer than we realize. WHY TRUMP TERMINATED ESPER US President Donald Trump has fired his defense secretary, Mark Esper earlier this week. And while many speculate that the reason is because Esper was at odds with his boss over deploying US troops into cities during violent Black Lives Matter protests, there could have been another reason for the move that many seem to be overlooking.

    With Biden projected to win the US presidency, many world leaders hastened to congratulate him. But some have been conspicuous in their absence. Some have gone further, backing unsubstantiated Trump made about voter fraud. Russian President Vladimir Putin Four years ago Mr Putin was among the first to congratulate Trump on his election victory, but there has been no message to Biden this time. Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said the reason was the legal challenges being launched by the Trump campaign. Slovenian Prime Minister Janez Jansa Mr Jansa has repeated allegations of voter fraud carried out by Democrats. Mr Trump's wife...

  • The friendship between George H.W. Bush and James Baker shaped the U.S. and the world

    There have been many political power players in Washington over the years. Some are spouses, like Bill and Hillary Clinton. Others are tenacious political ideologues, like Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld. Yet few, if any, can claim a bond like the one shared by George Herbert Walker Bush and James A. Baker, III. Bush had been in Texas just over ten years, starting in Odessa in 1948 before eventually moving to Houston in 1959, before that fateful day when he and Baker were paired to play men’s doubles at the same country club. Their families spent many weekends together, hosting...

    A major U.S. hospital system was hit with a cyberattack, one of the largest attacks on medical data in history, according to a report. The computer systems for Universal Health Services failed over the weekend and have resulted in some locations filing patient information with pen and paper, according to NBC News. Universal Health Services has more than 400 locations, mostly in the U.S., and treats millions of patients a year. The company operates in the United Kingdom, too. The company said it was dealing with “an IT security issue” but reports indicate the hospital chain is experiencing a ransomeware...

    With the global coronavirus death toll topping 1 million, Dr. Anthony Fauci gave a grim assessment of the pandemic’s impact in the US — which he said “is not in a good place” with more than 205,000 lives lost, according to a report. Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has warned repeatedly that the country is reporting more than 40,000 new cases each day, an “unacceptably high” number that should be below 10,000 at this point, CNBC reported.

    A population explosion among wild boars in the US has led experts to warn that a “feral swine bomb,” if left unchecked, could wreak havoc on large swaths of the country. Undark Magazine reported on the explosion of the pig population, which has caused an estimated $2.5bn worth of damages every year. Feral hogs trample and tear-up crops, attack livestock, and can destroy sensitive habitats. The pigs also act as disease carriers. They can host more than 30 viral and bacterial diseases as well as scores of parasites. here are approximately 9 million feral hogs in the US, and their...

    With the hope of preventing another virus surge, California Gov. Gavin Newsom announced a new process Friday for reopening businesses that's more gradual than the first attempt that eventually led him to close many businesses soon after they reopened. “Simple, also slow," is how the Democratic governor described the new rules, which take effect Monday. The four-tiered, color-coded system ranks counties based on the number of virus cases and infection rates. “We don’t put a green (tier) because we don’t believe that there’s a green light that says go back to the way things were or back to a pre-pandemic...

    Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, delivered some blunt messages to the public during an online video interview. There are three key reasons why many island nations and Asian countries, such as New Zealand, Singapore and South Korea, have managed to control the coronavirus, he said. Aside from social distancing and masks, he said these countries took many correct approaches to deal with their respective outbreaks and, as a result, have created the right environment to begin opening up their economies again. Public health and economic health are not mutually exclusive, he added,...

    Like it or not, the U.S. is already fighting an economic and technological cold war against China. While we should aim to eventually return to the optimism and promise of a broad China/U.S. partnership, the time for that is not now. This is a major challenge to our country, and we must do everything we can to avoid losing our economic leadership. By now, we all know the rivalry in 5G and AI, part of China’s $1.4 trillion technology commitment. Less attention has been given to an equally consequential struggle: who will control our future global financial systems. The power...

    Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan vowed on Wednesday not to yield to "pirates" and to keep searching for energy in disputed eastern Mediterranean waters despite EU pressure to stop. Long-seated suspicions between regional powers resurfaced when Turkey sent a research vessel accompanied by warships off the Greek island of Kastellorizo last week. The European Union urged Turkey to "immediately" halt on Sunday and NATO said Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg expressed his "concern" in a call with Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu on Wednesday. But Erdogan sounded undeterred. "We're 100 percent right on this issue," the Turkish leader said on a...

Donald Trump says we’re leading the world — well, we are the only major industrial economy to have its unemployment rate tripled,” former President Bill Clinton said in a video broadcast Tuesday night during the Democrat’s virtual national convention.

    White House coronavirus task force coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx said that she wished Americans had been forced into a total lockdown the way Italy was early in the pandemic. Speaking with the media Monday, Dr. Birx said: 'I wish that when we went into lockdown, we looked like Italy.' Italy's Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte imposed a nationwide quarantine on March 9, closing all non-essential businesses. The quarantine did not begin to loosen until the middle of April, with 'Phase 2' re-opening beginning in early May, although travel restrictions were still in effect.
