Hillary Clinton to Trump on a 2020 rerun: Dont tempt me. Do your job.
Responding to President Trumps sarcastic suggestion that Hillary Clinton should run for president again in 2020, Clinton tweeted back: Dont tempt me. The Trump administration has continued to pursue an investigation into her tenure as secretary of state and presidential campaign, stepping up its efforts as the 2020 election approaches contacting Clintons former aides and up to 130 current and former State Department officials, the Washington Post recently reported. Clinton, who lost the election although she received more votes than Trump, last week called the administration investigation into an election it already won an unfortunate diversion from the impeachment inquiry into Trump.

Chinas all-encompassing security crackdown in Xinjiang has turned the northwest region — home to most of the countrys ethnic Uighur population — into a place activists describe as an open air prison. Upwards of one million mostly Muslim ethnic minorities in the region are held in re-education camps, according to estimates cited by a UN panel in 2018. The United States blacklisted 28 Chinese entities this week over their alleged roles in rights violations in Xinjiang and said it would also curb visas for officials involved in detention or abuse of minorities.

As soon as Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced on Sept. 24 that House Democrats would begin an impeachment inquiry against Donald Trump, the president and his supporters started to put forth a slew of questionable arguments against it. Whereas Democrats see Trumps July 25 phone call to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, in which he solicited an investigation of former Vice President Joe Biden, as evidence that the president abused his power in an attempt to influence the outcome of the 2020 presidential election in his favor, the president and his allies describe the inquiry as a continuation of the endless witch hunt that began with the investigation into Russian attempts to influence the 2016 election.

Hong Kongs under-fire leader Carrie Lam on Tuesday said China intervening to end months of pro-democracy protests is an option following a particularly violent week of unrest that paralysed the city. The financial hub has been gripped by four months of rallies, and last weekend saw much of the city grind to a halt as masked demonstrators took to the streets in defiance of a controversial ban on face coverings. Lams decision last Friday to invoke colonial-era emergency powers — not used for half a century — to impose the ban sparked some of the most violent scenes since the crisis began, as hardcore protesters trashed dozens of subway stations, vandalised shops with mainland China ties, b…

Five civilian crewmen on board Card died, the explosion tore a huge hole in the engine-room compartment and a proud ship that had survived German U-boat attacks was on her way to the bottom the last aircraft carrier in U.S. military history to date sunk by enemy action. The sinking of the Card was stunning victory for the Viet Cong, yet little remembered today. It illustrated how vulnerable naval vessels can be even when faced with a low-tech enemy and how difficult maintaining port security can be in a war with no real front.

Guterres warns U.N. may not have enough money to pay staff next month
The United Nations may not have enough money for staff salaries next month if member states dont pay what they owe, U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres warned on Tuesday.

Elon Musk paid a convicted fraudster to smear a British diving hero who he baselessly called a paedophile, according to court documents. The billionaire technology entrepreneur allegedly orchestrated a malicious, false, and anonymous leak campaign in a bid to trash the reputation of Vernon Unsworth, who helped to rescue a schoolboy football team trapped in a cave in Thailand last year. The diver launched a defamation lawsuit last year after Mr Musk called him a peado guy and child rapist.

I woke up this morning to a little bit of a surprise, which is that the president of the United States was tweeting about our city and me as the mayor.

Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch is expected to be the deciding vote in a ruling over whether the Civil Rights Act of 1964 applies to LGBTQ people. Gorsuch, a conservative who has shown a propensity for carving out his own judicial path, said there are strong arguments favoring LGBTQ workers who were fired for their sexual orientation or transgender status, but he wasnt quite ready to rule in their favor, calling the cases really close. One of the things Gorsuch is considering is the aftermath of the ruling.

As evidenced by the EPAs recent work on interstate air pollution issues as well as analysis accompanying its rulemakings, Californias chronic air quality problems are not the result of cross-state air pollution or this Administrations regulatory reform efforts. In addition, the state of California represents a disproportionate share of the national list of backlogged State Implementation Plans, including roughly one-third of the EPAs overall SIP backlog. Californias total portion of the SIP backlog is more than 130 SIPs, with many dating back decades.

Individual pieces of pop culture, be it movies, TV or video games, dont turn empathetic people into murderers.
The message that well, of course he became a mass murderer, society gave him no choice! is dangerous on its own.
Despite suggestions that it is a call for incel vigilantism, Joker doesnt especially cleave to one political perspective.
