4 Pieces of the Orlando Shooting Narrative that Don’t Add Up

Waking Times

The truth does indeed matter in a time of universal deceit. When events as tragic and momentous as public massacre and terrorism occur in our open societies, we are immediately expected to acquiesce to public policy changes and new laws. To base such important decisions on phony, incomplete or biased interpretations of events is dangerous.

The Dalai Lama Speaks the Uncomfortable Truth about Immigration

Waking Times

When a refugee crisis of such magnitude as the mass exodus from Syria occurs, it tends to draw out both the best and worst qualities of people. The progressive, humanitarian angle on a situation like this is to take the high of road of offering solace and aid to as many suffering people as possible. An understandable expression of human compassion, however, on the other hand, as a means of protecting and preserving their individual customs and culture, nationalistic movements come out swinging for an end to such destructive immigration policies.

The Tragedy of Turkish Treachery

The actual text of the agreement has not filtered into mainstream circulation however the terms contained therein are gradually surfacing. An extensive exposé emerged in the leading Israel publication Haaretz which painted a shocking picture of the deal. There is not a shadow of doubt that one of the crucial motivators behind this deal was economics. Israel’s Netanyahu alluded to this crucial aspect on the 27th June 2016 stating that the deal has “immense implications for the Israeli economy”. Haaretz ventures to shed further light on the matter by alluding to a gas pipeline deal between Turkey and Israel. Turkey is viewed as the gateway to Europe and the portrayal of Turkey is a lucrative incentive for both countries.

General David Shoup

After Kennedy was murdered they got rid of General Shoup. One of the greatest US Marines in the history of the Corps.

It has been said that "Old men start wars and young men fight them." To the extent that foreign policies are developed by politicians and then enforced by men and women of the military this is certainly true.

Such dissent is not specific to the young; in every war a small minority in older generations has risen in opposition to war as well.

"I believe that if we had and would keep our dirty, bloody, dollar-crocked fingers out of the business of these nations so full of depressed, exploited people, they will arrive at a solution of their own. That they design and want. That they fight and work for."

'Brussels hasn't heard the wake up call' Outrage as EU pushes forward with Turkey talks

THE EU has not learnt from the "wake up call" of a Brexit vote as Brussels has pushed forward with talks on Turkey's controversial membership bid.

The fresh discussions come after Turkey demanded an acceleration on its application in return for taking back migrants seeking asylum in Europe.

But members of Germany's conservative Christian Social Union party are appalled and have called for the negotiations to be halted immediately.

CSU general secretary Andreas Scheuer said: "Apparently Brussels hasn't heard the wake up call.

"London is threatening to leave and Ankara is courting - this cannot be Europe's future."

Facebook CAN track you offline: Site wins Belgian privacy case over following logged out users

The social media site has won a legal battle against the Belgian data protection authority over tracking its users while they are not logged into Facebook.

Originally, the regulator had won its case and ordered the social network to stop tracking non-members when they visited publicly available Facebook pages.

But the Brussels Appeals Court dismissed the case, on the grounds that the regulator has no jurisdiction over Facebook Inc, which has its European headquarters in Ireland.

Will it be Czech-out or Czech-in? After Brexit, Czech President Milos Zeman calls for a referendum on exiting the European Union

Nearly 50 per cent of Czechs support staying in the EU, while 34 per cent are in favour of leaving, according to a June poll by the Median agency.

Zeman insisted he himself would vote against leaving when he spoke with voters in a small Czech town on Thursday, Czech Radio said on its website.

'I disagree with those who are in favour of leaving the EU,' the 71-year-old outspoken leftist said.

'But I'll do my best to have a referendum so they can express themselves. The same goes for a NATO exit.'

The Czech Republic, which joined the NATO Western defence alliance in 1999 and the EU in 2004, does not have a referendum law.

A former Goldman Sachs broker himself, Mezvinsky formed Eaglevale Management with two ex-Goldman Sachs partners in October 2011. As a “global macro” firm, Eaglevale’s strategy is to seek profit opportunities in politically volatile situations. Mezvinsky set up several funds in the Cayman Islands, a secretive tax haven, with Goldman Sachs serving as Eaglevale’s prime broker and banker. The giant brokerage firm has a checkered history of manipulating the value of Greek debt to the detriment of Greece.

Old Men Start Wars, Young Men Die In Them

“OLDER MEN START WARS, BUT YOUNGER MEN FIGHT THEM.” ~ ALBERT EINSTEIN

“OLDER MEN DECLARE WAR. BUT IT IS THE YOUTH THAT MUST FIGHT AND DIE.” ~ HERBERT HOOVER

“I’M FED UP TO THE EARS WITH OLD MEN DREAMING UP WARS FOR YOUNG MEN TO DIE IN.” ~ GEORGE S. MCGOVERN

One hundred years ago today—on July 1, 1916—thousands of young men died after older men decided, again, to send them to war. On the first day of the Battle of the Somme, the British army suffered 57,470 casualties, of which 19,240 were deaths, the French had 1,590 casualties, and the Germans had over 10,000. It was the single greatest day for casualties in British military history. By the time the Battle of the Somme ended in November, the British had around 420,000 casualties, the French about 200,000, and the Germans about 500,000.

A Brazilian judge has blocked $6 million in Facebook funds, says report

More fallout from WhatsApp's legal fight

A Brazilian judge has ordered a block on 19.5 million real (roughly $6 million) owned by Facebook, according to a new report by O Globo’s G1 news service. It’s the latest move in an ongoing legal fight with WhatsApp, which saw days-long telecom blackouts of the service in both May and December.

Brazilian courts have repeatedly ordered WhatsApp to turn over messages and data related to a drug case. WhatsApp’s end-to-end encryption means that data is inaccessible even to WhatsApp’s own employees, making it impossible for the company to comply with the order. The result has been a standoff between WhatsApp and the Brazilian judiciary, which has significantly hampered the company’s ability to operate.

We really have reached a point of such insanity across human civilization that governments have become the terrorists who actively seek to harm and kill off the people. The latest example demonstrating this very point is the fact that the EPA just announced its plan to allow gigantic increases in the allowable radioactivity in drinking water... increasing it by over 3,000 times in the case of radioactive Iodine-131... while calling it "safe" to drink even though it's almost certain to give you cancer.

Native Activist Leonard Peltier Calls for Clemency Support

By Derrick Broze

On the 40th anniversary of the gunfight at the Pine Ridge Reservation, imprisoned Native American activist Leonard Peltier is calling on President Obama to grant him clemency before the end of his presidency.

On June 26, 1975, members of the American Indian Movement (AIM) were involved in a gun fight with agents of the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. When the exchange of gunfire was finished three men were dead – Special Agents Jack R. Coler and Ronald A. Williams of the FBI and Joe Stuntz, a member of AIM.

On February 6, 1976, AIM member Leonard Peltier would be arrested and extradited from Canada after being accused of being the one who fired the shots that killed Coler and Williams...

And it happened just five minutes before President Biden was due to arrive.

Chaos erupted at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland on Thursday morning after an active shooter drill prompt reports of a ‘real world’ shooter.

Homeless count up: Report shows Hawaii Island increased by 153

The Hawaii Point-In-Time Count, an annual survey of the state’s homeless population, was released Wednesday, and the results were a mixed bag of both encouraging and disconcerting numbers.

The homeless tally statewide increased from 7,620 to 7,921, a jump of 301 homeless individuals, or a total increase of 4 percent. That movement is moderate, however, when compared to leaps made in the previous two years. The homeless population rose by 583 individuals (9.2 percent) between 2013-14 and by 702 individuals (10.1 percent) between 2014-15.

Whether the inflated numbers can or should be spun as a positive simply because they’re expanding more gradually than before is open to discussion.

US Informs Moscow of New Sanctions Against Russian Entities - DoS

The US authorities have informed Russia of imposing sanctions on a number of the country’s entities over breaching the Iran, North Korea, and Syria Nonproliferation Act, a US Department of State spokesperson told Sputnik on Friday.

The State Department said the United States imposed sanctions on 38 foreign entities and individuals from ten countries on June 28, 2016. The measures will remain in effect for a period of two years.

"These entities and individuals were sanctioned as a result of a determination that there was credible information indicating they had transferred to, or acquired from, Iran, North Korea, or Syria goods, services, or technology," the spokesperson added.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hey, smooth move, US State Department; you have well and truly joined Russia to China at the hip, economically, and militarily, by creating these sanctions.

And if there is alleged "credible evidence" that goods, services, or technologies had been transferred by Russian companies to these countries, where is it, please?!?

European Crisis Explodes: Italy Bank Bailout Aims to Avoid “Panic, Run On Deposits”

Italy Granted “Extraordinary ” €150BN Bank Bailout Program To Prevent “Panic, Run On Deposits”

by Tyler Durden

As we noted today, the rumors of an Italian bank bailout, which started on Monday morning, and were promptly shot down by Merkel the next day, got louder after a Reuters report that the Italian government is considering more creative ways to inject liquidity into Italy’s banks. However that was just an appetizer to a main course, which came later today when as the WSJ reported citing a spokeswoman for the European Union’s executive arm that the “European Commission has authorized Italy to use government guarantees to create a precautionary liquidity support program for their banks.”

How did this happen so quietly under the table and without Merkel’s blessing? WSJ says that the program was approved under the bloc’s “extraordinary crisis rules for state aid.”

And here we thought that Italy’s banks are actually doing so very well. Oh wait, no we didn’t.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This financial contagion wil not stop with Italy.

With the pressures on Deutsche Bank right now, it is a question of when that financial institution is also on the skids. As reported yesterday at the wsj.com :

drops after German bank fails Fed stress test and IMF says it’s the riskiest lender in the world It’s a superlative Deutsche Bank AG could have done without. The International Monetary Fund called the German bank the riskiest financial institution in the world as a potential source of external shocks to the financial system. That labeling came right after a U.S. banking unit of Deutsche Bank was one of just two banks to fail the Federal Reserve’s “stress test,” an exercise measuring how 33 banks would fare in the event of another financial crisis. The IMF report helped send the bank’s stock Thursday to its lowest price in more than 30 years, as shares already were reeling from the U.K.’s vote to leave the European Union. Deutsche Bank, Germany’s biggest lender, is struggling to return to full-year profitability amid an overhaul to boost capital cushions and cut jobs and expenses. The potential financial and economic upheaval from the Brexit vote could further complicate the bank’s efforts to sell assets and stabilize its core businesses. Deutsche Bank shares closed down at €12.32, and are now down about 45% this year. Deutsche Bank and other banking shares had plummeted Friday and Monday in the aftermath of the U.K. referendum to leave the EU. The IMF said that “among the [globally systemically important banks], Deutsche Bank appears to be the most important net contributor to systemic risks, followed by HSBC and Credit Suisse.”

Clinton sought secret info on EU bailout plans as son-in-law's doomed hedge fund gambled on Greece

Hedge fund manager Marc Mezvinsky had friends in high places when he bet big on a Greek economic recovery, but even the keen interest of his mother-in-law, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, wasn't enough to spare him and his investors from financial tragedy.

In 2012, Mezvinski, the husband of Chelsea Clinton, created a $325 million basket of offshore funds under the Eaglevale Partners banner through a special arrangement with investment bank Goldman Sachs. The funds have lost tens of millions of dollars predicting that bailouts of the Greek banking system would pump up the value of the country’s distressed bonds. One fund, exclusively dedicated to Greek debt, suffered near-total losses.

Disabled woman beaten bloody by TSA agents after becoming confused and afraid at security checkpoint

Disabled woman was beaten bloody by federal agents during an airport security screening while on her way to undergo treatment for a brain tumor.

Hannah Cohen set off the metal detector at a security checkpoint at the Memphis International Airport, and she was led away for additional screening, reported WREG-TV.

“They wanted to do further scanning, (but) she was reluctant — she didn’t understand what they were about to do,” said her mother, Shirley Cohen.

Cohen said she tried to tell agents with the Transportation Security Administration that her 19-year-old daughter is partially deaf, blind in one eye, paralyzed and easily confused — but she said police kept her away from the security agents.

The confused and terrified young woman tried to run away, her mother said, and agents violently took her to the ground.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, this is how the TSA and the cops in Memphis interpret "to protect and serve"; by beating up a developmentally and physically challenged young woman, fighting a brain tumor.

I hope this lawsuit gets everyone who was a part of this fired, and that the compensation claims are huge.

TSA needs to be sued out of existence.

US And Iceland Sign Joint Defence Agreement

e US Department of Defence and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs have signed an agreement regarding the continued American military presence in Iceland.

The agreement, posted on the official site of Iceland’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, reaffirms a number of existing points regarding joint efforts between the US and Iceland to defend the island nation that were established in the 1951 Defence Agreement and the 2006 Joint Understanding. The latter agreement was ratified in the wake of the NATO base in Keflavík drastically scaling down operations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is not about the "....defense of Iceland by military means...."

This appears to be a prepositioning of American military hardware in advance of a war against Russia.

Ukrainian NGOs Lobbied US Congress for Anti-Russian Sanctions

Lifenews has succeeded to discover that behind the lobbying of anti-Russian sanctions and resolutions in the United States stood the non-profit organization "European Center of Modern Ukraine" (ECFMU). This NGO in 2014 transferred $120,000 to US lobbying firm Mercury for the promotion of a number of legislative acts in Congress.

In early 2014, the European Center of Modern Ukraine transferred $70,000 dollars to the account of Mercury. These funds, under the mediation of a specialist organization Max Sandlin, were aimed at lobbying for several resolutions of Congress, including a resolution "condemning the illegal Russian aggression in Ukraine" (S. Res. 378 - adopted by Senate), a resolution supporting the "territorial integrity of Ukraine and condemning Russian military aggression in Ukraine" (S. Res. 370 - was discussed in the Committee on International Relations), and a number of other acts of Congress, in the interests of post-revolutionary Ukraine.

Despite the fact that parliaments and leaders across the EU, including prominent politicians in her own country, oppose the policy, Merkel continues to insist anti-Russia sanctions be renewed. The fact that the German chancellor is so easily getting her way, without any tangible results, tells us much about how the EU works these days.

MONSANTO SUED OVER CLAIMS WEED KILLER GAVE 30 PEOPLE CANCER

According to Yolanda Mendoza, the use of Monsanto’s “Roundup” weed killer nearly killed her.

Mendoza used the weed killer once a week on her one-acre property, which she says gave her non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.

Cbsnews.com reports:

During her five-month battle with the disease, her children were only allowed to visit once a week. There were moments when she didn’t think she’d make it, but Mendoza said her kids helped her through them, and the most difficult part was “not being there for them.”

After intense chemotherapy, her cancer is now in remission, but Mendoza is fighting a battle against the product she says made her sick – the popular weed killer “Roundup.” She used the backpack sprayer once a week on her one-acre property.

“I would strap it on and I would walk around spraying,” Mendoza said.

US ONLY COUNTRY TO OPPOSE UN HOLDING ISRAEL ACCOUNTABLE FOR WAR CRIMES, YET AGAIN – MONDOWEISS

The US was the only country in the world to oppose a resolution calling for Israel to be held accountable for war crimes, at the 29th regular session of the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC), held from 15 June to 3 July 2015.

The US voted against “ensuring accountability and justice for all violations of international law in” the Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT).

US vote against “ensuring accountability and justice for all violations of international law in” the Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT).

41 nations voted for the measure, including Germany, France, Japan, Brazil, China, and more. Just five nations abstained—the most high-profile of which was India, which is presently run by a right-wing Hindu nationalist government that spends billions on Israeli weapons.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

With the US military bombing innocent civilians all over the world, and the common acceptance of Israeli money through AIPAC, members of the US government have absolutely no problem seeing Palestinians as simply irrelevant "collateral damage" for the Israeli government, and deserving of no human rights whatsoever.

“YOU DON’T MURDER A SLEEPING CHILD FOR PEACE”

We mourn with the family of Hallel-Yaffa Ariel. Her murder was senseless and will only lead to more zionist terror.

You don’t murder a sleeping child for peace. We will not let barbarism defeat humanity.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY CANADA ! – BONNE FÊTE DU CANADA

July 1st has always been a special day for me. Forty nine years ago today I left the United States and applied for Landed Immigrant Status in Canada. My wife and I picked this date as it was a National Holiday and we figured there would be less security at the Toronto Airport…. and less questions. It was a special day in Canada, it was the 100th anniversary of Confederation.

PBS DONATIONS ARE SECRETLY BEING USED BY POLICE TO SPY ON AMERICANS

DHS and the First Responders Group (FRG) have created a way to transmit encrypted live video and data using broadcast television signals, It’s called ‘datacasting‘. (The FRG is part of DHS)

“When broadcast television transitioned from analog to digital broadcast transmissions, it created the opportunity to allocate the television spectrum in new ways. Datacasting takes advantage of a portion of the public broadcasting station’s bandwidth normally used for television programming”

Police are secretly using PBS television stations to spy on Americans

DHS is using Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) television stations to send videos and messages to law enforcement across the country.

Music Legend Kris Kristofferson Misdiagnosed With Alzheimer’s, Goes Public With Lyme

By Brandon Turbeville

For years Kris Kristofferson was told he was suffering from dementia and Alzheimer’s disease and would simply have to get used to a failing memory that would only continue to get worse.

Kristofferson had been having trouble with his short-term memory for quite some time and even had problems recounting the past, losing his grasp on memories that even many of his fans could recall, having read biographies and watched documentaries about his life...

CIA PRESS CONFERENCE LOOKS LIKE SNL SKIT AS OFFICIAL REFUSES TO ANSWER QUESTIONS ON STOLEN ARMS

After coming into the White House with statements about being the most transparent administration in history, the Obama administration has done anything but operate with transparency.

The CIA has been operating a covert weapons program in Syria, buying Kalashnikov assault rifles, mortars and rocket-propelled grenades in Eastern Europe for delivery to “moderate” Syrian rebels, with the ultimate intent of toppling the Assad government. It was recently revealed that truckloads of these weapons have been systematically stolen in route to the rebels by Jordanian intelligence officers.

According to a report by Reuters:

Weapons shipped into Jordan for Syrian rebels by the Central Intelligence Agency and Saudi Arabia were stolen by Jordanian intelligence operatives and sold to arms merchants on the black market, the New York Times reported, citing American and Jordanian officials.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why are these people even bothering with attending a press conference, when they know they are being lied to, and information will is guaranteed to be obfuscated in the extreme?!?

When invited, everyone should say, "Thank you, no; you won't answer our questions or tell us the truth; there is utterly nothing you will give us which is not another lie."

MURDER BY DRONE: OBAMA TO ANNOUNCE CIVILIAN DEATH TOLL NUMBERS, BUT THERE'S A CATCH

President Barack Obama is expected to announce the number of civilians killed by "illegal" US drone strikes Friday, but only in countries where the world's biggest military hasn't officially declared war.

Several news outlets reported, citing leaks from US officials, that the number is expected to be just 100, a tiny fraction of those estimated by investigative journalists and human rights groups who track the "violations of international law."

The White House will only reveal civilian casualties in countries that are technically not at a US battlefield, like Libya, Pakistan, Somalia and Yemen.

Those killed by US drone strikes in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Syria will not be featured in the total. The US has deployed thousands of drones in these countries.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is somewhat akin to touching up an x-ray when someone has cancer, and making it appear, cosmetically, as "not that big a deal."

But ALL extrajudicial assassinations ARE...a big deal, and have absolutely no place in American jurisprudence, period, end of discussion.

And the only thing these murders do is create a willingness in more people to commit jihad against Americans, or American interests; or has that been the plan all along, in order to groom Americans for perpetual war?!?

This totally out-of-control government has lost its ability to rationally, reasonably negotiate in good faith and create win/win treaties. When a kid has a hammer, everything becomes a nail, to be hammered; but instead of a hammer, what the US government has are drone planes, which drop bombs, and murder, with absolutely zero due process.

I won't even bother reading the report; everything this administration says is a complete, utter lie, and this will be no different.

New Tennessee Law Sets Stage to Reject International Gun Control

By Mike Maharrey

Today, a new Tennessee law setting the foundation to stop enforcement of gun control imposed by international law or treaty goes into effect.

House Bill 2389 (HB2389) was introduced by Rep. John Windle (D-Livingston) in January. It prohibits law enforcement officers from enforcing provisions of international law and treaties that limit gun rights as specified in Article I, Section 26 of the Tennessee State Constitution...

CHARLES KOCH'S PLOT TO HIJACK US UNIVERSITIES AND SPREAD HIS RADICAL "FREE-MARKET" PROPAGANDA

The public is starting to catch up with the reality that Charles Koch is not only a major spender on building his own ideological institutions. Over the past decade, Koch has funded colleges and universities to bend them in his direction, often funding "free-market" academic centers. Mostly through his personal foundation, Koch gave $108 million to 366 colleges and universities from 2005 to 2014 and still more since then: for example, $10 million for George Mason University's School of Law, which will be renamed after late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia; $2 million to Western Carolina University to establish a free-market center; and over $4.1 million approved for future payment to several schools according to the foundation's 2014 990 tax form.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Koch brothers aren't doing anything most of the rest of major corporations are doing; but in looking to cement their business practices by hijacking academia to applaud, and agree with, and teach their way of doing business, there is something sinisterly visionary about this ploy.

US Ratchets Up Tension South China Sea

By Tony Cartalucci

The United States, as part of its stated agenda of raising tensions in the South China Sea to encourage cooperation across Southeast Asia with the US in encircling and containing Beijing’s regional and global rise, has included several high-profile naval and aviation incidents. However, there is a legal battle lurking just behind these more spectacular headlines, and once again the United Nations is being brought in and undermined in the process...

Lynch to Remove Herself From Decision Over Clinton Emails, Official Says

Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch plans to announce on Friday that she will accept whatever recommendation career prosecutors and the F.B.I.director make about whether to bring charges related to Hillary Clinton’s personal email server, a Justice Department official said.

Patrick Henry's "Give Me Liberty" Speech

It is in vain, Sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace!---but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the North will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our breathren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that Gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery! Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!

CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE by Henry David Thoreau

I heartily accept the motto, "That government is best
which governs least"; and I should like to see it acted up
to more rapidly and systematically. Carried out, it finally
amounts to this, which also I believe--"That government is
best which governs not at all"; and when men are prepared
for it, that will be the kind of government which the will
have. Government is at best but an expedient; but most
governments are usually, and all governments are sometimes,
inexpedient. The objections which have been brought against
a standing army, and they are many and weighty, and deserve
to prevail, may also at last be brought against a standing
government. The standing army is only an arm of the
standing government. The government itself, which is only
the mode which the people have chosen to execute their will,
is equally liable to be abused and perverted before the

COMMON SENSE by Thomas Paine

Society in every state is a blessing, but government even in its best
state is but a necessary evil; in its worst state an intolerable one;
for when we suffer, or are exposed to the same miseries BY A GOVERNMENT,
which we might expect in a country WITHOUT GOVERNMENT, our calamity
is heightened by reflecting that we furnish the means by which we suffer.
Government, like dress, is the badge of lost innocence; the palaces of kings
are built on the ruins of the bowers of paradise. For were the impulses
of conscience clear, uniform, and irresistibly obeyed, man would need
no other lawgiver; but that not being the case, he finds it necessary
to surrender up a part of his property to furnish means for the protection
of the rest; and this he is induced to do by the same prudence which in every
other case advises him out of two evils to choose the least. WHEREFORE,
security being the true design and end of government, it unanswerably follows,

Under fire after secret meeting, Lynch to step back from Clinton probe

Under bipartisan fire following a private meeting with former President Clinton even as her Justice Department investigates Hillary Clinton over her secret email server, Attorney General Loretta Lynch will announce on Friday that she will defer to non-political subordinates on whether to bring charges against the likely Democratic presidential nominee.

The Justice Department had been planning on such a course for months, The New York Times reported, but reports that Lynch met with the former president on her government plane at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport have sealed the decision.

Florida: First Person Killed in a Tesla Car in Self-Drive Mode Was a Former Navy SEAL

The U.S. announced Thursday the first fatality in a wreck involving a car in self-driving mode, the 40-year-old owner of a technology company who nicknamed his vehicle “Tessy” and had praised its sophisticated “Autopilot” system just one month earlier for preventing a collision on an interstate. The government said it is investigating the design and performance of the system aboard the Tesla Model S sedan. Joshua D. Brown, of Canton, Ohio, died in the accident May 7 in Williston, Florida, when his car’s cameras failed to distinguish the white side of a turning tractor-trailer from a brightly lit sky and didn’t automatically activate its brakes, according to government records obtained Thursday.

Cameron’s controversial £2.8bn Saudi Arabia arms deal investigated

Saudi Arabia has been part of a massive bombing campaign in Yemen in a bid to quash a rebellion. Thousands of civilians are thought to have been killed in the raids, including one using British-made cluster bombs last May.

On Wednesday, High Court judge Mr. Justice Gilbart said there was “abundant evidence of breaches of international humanitarian law” by Saudi Arabia and the arms deal with Britain must be investigated.

Osborne blames Brexit for not balancing UK books - despite already being on track to FAIL

As part of the Tory's promises, George Osborne vowed the state would run a surplus - spending no more than it gets in taxes - by 2020.

But just two weeks ago, it was revealed the Government had been forced to borrow a staggering £17.9billion in the two months since the start of the financial year in April.

It meant Mr Osborne was extremely unlikely to meet his borrowing targets this year - and increasingly unlikely to reach his goal over the next four years.

Today the Chancellor has admitted he will have to abandon his promise to run a surplus by 2020.

Yet he blamed the vote to Leave for a downturn in economic conditions, which have not even materialised, for the change of tact.
