its economy as sanctions to stop its nuclear

North Korea has accused the United States of blocking the hermit state from importing frozen chicken and swimming flippers due to stringent economic sanctions. Pyongyang accused Donald Trump of attempting to ´suffocate´ its economy and claimed the nation´s nuclear ambitions were entirely legitimate and required to defend itself from the United States. The country´s foreign ministry said if testing or possessing nuclear weapons was wrong, then the US and other nuclear superpowers should be subjected to economic sanctions as well. The statement included a long list of non-military-use items that it says have been impacted by the trade bans, including frozen chicken,

Gee, that´s what I want to have for lunch. A scrawny, frozen, North Korean chicken.

Of course, a bucket of KFC would feed a North Korean family for a month. Or Lil Kim for a snack.

Well yes, Kim Un, the U.S. is turning the thumbscrews. And, as you know, U.S. special forces are making contingent plans to knock you off, just in case. Have a really nice day, Kim Un whatever.

A police officer, a songwriter and a surgeon who were blocked by on Twitter by Donald Trump are among a group suing the President. A lawsuit has been filed by seven Twitter users who have fallen foul of the commander-in-chief, plus the Knight First Amendment Institute at Columbia University. It has accused Trump of trying to ´suppress dissent´ after the seven criticized him on the social network. Legal papers state: ´In an effort to suppress dissent in this forum, Defendants have excluded—“blocked”—Twitter users who have criticized the President or his policies. ´This practice is unconstitutional, and this suit seeks to end it.´

Loretta Lynch, President Obama´s last attorney-general, used a secret email address for official business under the name Elizabeth Carlisle, it has been revealed. Lynch used the account to discuss her notorious meeting on a plane with Bill Clinton while his wife´s own email scandal was being investigated by the FBI. The disclosure is the latest blow to the reputation of the woman who had once been the country´s most senior law enforcement official. She had to step aside from deciding on whether to charge Hillary Clinton with breaking the law for having her secret server in alleged breach of national security law because

Sadiq Khan today tore into YouTube for refusing to take down four ´shocking´ videos boasting about gang violence which were reported to them by the police. The London Mayor warned that people could be killed needlessly unless more is done to take down material which encourages violence. The menacing videos, in which gang members wearing scarves and masks and brag about how they would murder their rivals, have been viewed over 356,000 times. The Metropolitan Police reported the clips to the internet giant in December, but despite having policies to remove threatening material, eight months on YouTube have

President Donald Trump said in morning tweets that his base is actually getting ´bigger & stronger´ in spite of polling that shows support for the Republican executive receding. A Quinnipiac University poll shows Republican optimism about Trump´s presidency dropping 12 points since January. His backing among other voters who were key to his victory has also been slipping. Trump launched an assault from his New Jersey golf club on ´fake news´ this morning in a flurry of tweets attacking the survey. His actions in office, he said, ´have driven the Trump base even closer together. Will never change!´ The tweets corresponded with Trump´s

NEW ORLEANS – Even after heavy rains stopped pouring down Saturday, many residents in areas of the city experienced rising water. Residents in Lakeview said hours after the rainfall stopped, water was rising inch-by-inch. However, city officials said during a press conference Sunday that rising water during drainage is a “normal occurrence.” “When you get that much rainfall it takes time for them to catch up,” said Ryan Berni, Deputy Mayor of External Affairs about the city´s drainage system. “Particularly lower lying areas, in the lowest parts of the city, water goes to those areas as the system takes time

The driver of a truck bearing a construction company´s name shown in a video speeding down a heavily flooded Mid-City street and pushing wakes of water onto inundated cars Saturday (Aug. 5) has been fired, according to a message posted to the company´s Facebook page. The video, which has garnered nearly 160,000 views on Facebook since being posted around 7 p.m. Saturday, catches a white pickup truck racing down Banks Street with water up to the truck´s bumper, then -- without slowing -- veer onto South Murat Street in Mid-City.

Two Atlantic low pressure systems continue their threat to develop into tropical storms, the National Hurricane Center reports. A system in the west central Caribbean sea seems to be quickly gaining momentum, with a 60 percent chance of developing into a tropical storm in the next two days and an 80 percent chance in the next five. Those odds are up from yesterday’s 30 percent chance of formation over two days and 50 percent chance over five. “You’ve got to watch this one a lot closer because it is surrounded by land in all four directions,” said Dennis Feltgen, spokesman

SYDNEY — U.S. military officials called off a search and rescue operation on Sunday for three U.S. Marines who were missing after their Osprey aircraft crashed into the sea off the east coast of Australia while trying to land. The U.S. Navy and Marine Corps suspended the rescue operation and launched a recovery effort instead, the Marine base Camp Butler in Japan said in a statement, essentially confirming the military does not expect to find the missing Marines alive. The Marines’ next of kin had been notified, and Australia’s defense force was assisting the Americans with the recovery effort, the statement said. The

Stone-throwing terrorists ambushed a civilian bus full of children leaving a protest rally on the ruins of the town of Sa-Nur in northern Samaria Thursday. Arutz Sheva spoke with Rochel, the mother of 10 year old Shmuel-David, who was struck in the head by a large rock when the bus was attacked. Shmuel-David remains in the hospital for further treatment following the discovery of minor internal bleeding in his head. "We were on our way to the center of the country.

Now we´re getting down to brass tacks. The UK is prepared to offer the EU £36 billion in payment of outstanding liabilities as we leave, according to the Sunday Telegraph. The figure seems to be well sourced and has a plausibility about it. Equivalent to 40 billion euros it is significantly less than the 100 billion euros some in the EU had mooted and is at least approaching the same ball park as the more commonly suggested 60 billion euros. Two things are particularly interesting here. Firstly, there has not been much outrage amongst Eurosceptics. Richard Tice, from the Leave Means Leave campaign

The war against ISIS has taken dramatic strides since Donald Trump became president, with the US and its allies reclaiming swathes of Iraq and Syria. In fact, of all the land reclaimed by the US-led coalition since 2014, nearly one third has been taken since Trump took office. That´s thanks to Trump´s decision to delegate decisions and engage in a ´campaign of annihilation,´ Brett McGurk, the State Department´s senior envoy to the anti-Islamic State coalition, told the Washington Post. Since its peak in early 2015, ISIS has lost 78 per cent of its occupied areas in Iraq and 58 per cent in

Former President Barack Obama’s National Security adviser, Susan Rice, wants President Donald Trump to accept North Korea as a nuclear power. “History shows that we can, if we must, tolerate nuclear weapons in North Korea — the same way we tolerated the far greater threat of thousands of Soviet nuclear weapons during the Cold War,” she wrote in a New York Times op-ed, criticizing the president’s “fire and fury” rhetoric in response to the escalating tensions between the two countries. Rice urged Gen. John Kelly, White House chief of staff, to stop Trump, and she pointedly attacked Dr. Sebastian Gorka,

Ruben Gallego (D-AZ) made it clear he has no intention to stop reminding people that President Trump is bigoted against Muslims. The congressman spoke with radio host and Mediaite contributor Dean Obeidallah, where they discussed the fallout from the recent bomb attack against a mosque in Minnesota. The Trump Administration has been noticeably reluctant to comment about the matter, and Gallego slammed the president for marginalizing Muslims around the country with his rhetoric instead of promising to protect them as citizens. “It’s disappointing that Trump doesn’t show any leadership – doesn’t even do attempt to do it on his own –

MARTHA’S VINEYARD, Mass.—Jamaicans and other foreign workers have long powered the summer economy in the upscale tourist haven of Martha’s Vineyard, cleaning hotel rooms, waiting tables and mixing fudge. This year, many local businesses had to come up with a Plan B. Facing a shortage of foreign laborers, local restaurants have reduced hours of operation and pared back menus. Managers are cleaning hotel rooms, laundry is piling up and at least one restaurant is using disposable cups to ease the dishwashers’ load. The problem is a scarcity of the H-2B visas used to bring foreign seasonal workers to the U.S.

Worried by the Trump administration’s delay in announcing a military strategy for the war in Afghanistan, Sen. John McCain said Thursday he’ll try to force the debate on Capitol Hill, offering his own plan that would force a troop increase. The Arizona Republican, who is also chairman of the Armed Services Committee, didn’t lay out a number in the legislation but said more U.S. counterterrorism forces should be deployed, and given independent authority to strike targets of the Taliban, al Qaeda or other terrorist groups. Mr. McCain also said the U.S should secure a long-term agreement with Afghanistan for an

A judge who could "decide Trump´s fate" previously served as senior counsel for Democratic Sen. Patrick Leahy (Vt.). The Daily Beast reported Wednesday that Beryl Howell, who was appointed as a federal judge by President Barack Obama in 2010, signed off Mueller´s request to form a grand jury that will seek to gather documents and question Trump associates. Howell´s role could become "far more active," the Daily Beast reported. The grand jury could potentially put together a report that could start impeachment proceedings that would have to be signed off by Howell before becoming available to Congress or the public.

Former President Obama will re-emerge on the national scene this fall, though Democrats expect him to do so with caution. One aide describes the beginning of a "delicate dance" that aims to put Obama in the Democratic fray, but prevent him from remaining the face of the party. Aides will huddle with Obama in the coming weeks to plot out what shape the former president´s fall schedule will take. Advisers close to him say that while he will play an active role in helping his party rebuild, much of his work will be behind the scenes. He is likely to
