The U.S. Marines Might Be Souring on Amphibious Assault Ships. Here's Why.
The incoming commandant of the U.S. Marine Corps is backing away from the service's longstanding requirement for 38 dedicated amphibious assault ships.The move could signal the beginning of a new approach to amphibious warfare for the world's leading marine force.New commandant Gen. David Berger is "willing to shed some key tenets of the Marines' amphibious force-planning in recent years - including the demand for 38 amphibious warships to support a two Marine Expeditionary Brigade-sized forcible entry force," Megan Eckstein reported for the U.S. Naval Institute.Force-structure assessments in 2009 and 2016 affirmed the Marines' requirement for 38 assault ships including LHA and LHD big-deck vessels and small-deck LSDs and LPDs.The Navy in 2019 was short of the 38-amphib goal. The 32 ships currently in the fleet together can carry hundreds of jump jets, tiltrotors, helicopters, ACV armored vehicles, LCU landing craft and LCAC hovercraft as well as thousands of Marines."We will no longer use a ‘2.0 MEB requirement' as the foundation for our arguments regarding amphibious ship building, to determine the requisite capacity of vehicles or other capabilities, or as pertains to the Maritime Prepositioning Force,"  Berger wrote.

Tiger, rhinos flee to higher ground in India's flood-hit Assam
A tiger escaped from a wildlife park in India's flood-ravaged Assam and stretched out on a shophouse bed Thursday, startling residents and shining a spotlight on the plight of animals caught up in the deluge. The adult tiger -- weighing more than 200 pounds (90 kilogrammes) -- was like many other beasts in the World Heritage-listed Kaziranga National Park, trying to reach dry land as the reserve became submerged by heavy rains. More than 50 wild animals have died so far, including some in traffic accidents, as they tried to cross a busy highway outside the park and reach the nearby Karbi hills, local media reported.

Samantha Bee Shocked Kellyanne Conway Somehow Even ‘More Racist' Than Trump
TBSSamantha Bee didn't have time to cover all of President Trump's recent "racisms," instead choosing to zero in on his demand that four freshmen Congresswomen of color go back to the countries "from which they came." "Sadly, the only thing that should surprise anyone is that he wrote ‘from which they came' to avoid ending a sentence with a preposition," the Full Frontal host joked. "Way to go, Shakespeare, now return your head to the orifice from which it came." "Of course, it wasn't long before spokes-golem Kellyanne Conway leapt to his defense by somehow sounding more racist than her boss," Bee continued before playing the clip of the White House counselor literally responding to a reporter's question with, "What's your ethnicity?" "Fun fact," Bee said, "that's also how she answers the phone."  Seth Meyers Tears Into Cowardly Republicans Hiding from Racist Trump TweetsFrom there, she moved onto the resolution condemning Trump's remarks that passed the House with the support of only four Republican members. "So most House Republicans are A-OK with racism," Bee said, "which is great news if Biden is elected because at least he has a history of working with segregationists." The host spent the rest of her opening segment breaking down just how racist Trump's policies are, including his efforts to stop even legal immigration to the United States. "It's almost as if he doesn't like people from certain parts of the world or something," Bee said.

In a major break with a longtime ally, U.S. President Donald Trump's administration on Wednesday said Turkey is being kicked out of the F-35 program because it is buying the Russian S-400 air defense system.

‘I saw hate in his eyes': White security guard pulls gun on black police officer
Sheriff's deputy Alan Gaston thought they were on the same side.One man, Mr Gaston, was a high-ranking officer in the Lucas County, Ohio, sheriff's department with 34 years of experience.The other was a security guard contracted to protect an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) office in Toledo.But then the guard pulled his gun. He raised his voice. He put a hand on Mr Gaston's arm and rested his finger on the trigger.In a matter of seconds, what began with a routine errand at the IRS escalated into a frightening standoff between a white security guard and a black police officer, who said he heard hate in the guard's shouts and believed he would be shot."You don't expect to be ambushed by someone who you think is on the same team," Mr Gaston told The Washington Post."I feel there was definitely some racial overtones involved. And I'm not the type of person to throw the race card, I'm just telling you the facts. I looked in his eyes and I saw hate in his eyes."He had stopped by the IRS office during his shift on 31 May to ask a question about a letter the agency sent him.He was in full uniform, his badge and his firearm in clear view.The security guard, identified in court documents as Seth Eklund, asked Mr Gaston to leave his gun in his patrol car.When Mr Gaston replied he couldn't do that, he said Mr Eklund became hostile. Mr Eklund accused Mr Gaston of reaching for his weapon, shouting "get your hands off your gun", even though Mr Gaston said his hands were visible and nowhere near h

AOC Grills Facebook VP on Taking His Pay in Company Cryptocurrency
REUTERSRep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Wednesday grilled Facebook VP David Marcus during the second day of congressional hearings investigating the social network's intention to create a digital currency dubbed Libra. In June, Facebook announced that it would create a worldwide cryptocurrency, drawing backlash from a range of international lawmakers, including President Donald Trump. Marcus, CEO of the Facebook subsidiary Calibra, will oversee the company's efforts to create a cryptocurrency. He testified before the House Committee on Financial Services Wednesday. Ocasio-Cortez honed in on a remark Marcus made Tuesday in response to questions from the Senate Banking Committee. "You said yesterday you would be comfortable taking 100 percent of your pay in Libra. We have a term for taking your pay in corporate controlled currency in this country," she said. "Are you familiar with the term?" Marcus said he was not."It's called ‘scrip,'" she said, referring to the corporate practice of issuing a specific currency to pay employees and then and subsequently price-gouging their employees at company stores. "Do you think there's a risk in taking your pay this way?" Marcus did not answer the question; Ocasio-Cortez's allotted time had expired. Update: A Facebook representative reached out to The Daily Beast to say that the company has no plans to offer salaries in Libra at this time.The New York congresswoman also questioned the oversight of the cryptocurrency, pointing out that the 28 companies in the gove

Big Guns: Army Prototypes Range-Doubling New Artillery Weapon to Outgun Russia
The Army is building prototypes of a new artillery cannon that can more than double the range of existing weapons and vastly alter the strategic and tactical landscape shaping land war into the future.The Army program, called Extended Range Cannon Artillery, has been developing for several years; it is now entering a new phase through an Army deal with BAE Systems to build "Increment 1" prototypes."This prototype phase will address capability gaps in the Army's indirect fire systems and improve the rate and range of fire with the development of power distribution software and hardware integration solutions," a BAE Systems statement said.During testing thus far, the Army has successfully fired a 155mm artillery round 62 kilometers - marking a technical breakthrough in the realm of land-based weapons and progressing toward its stated goal of being able to outrange and outgun Russian and Chinese weapons.Currently, most land-fired artillery shot from an M777 Towed Howitzer or Self-Propelled Howitzer are able to pinpoint targets out to 30km - so hitting 62km dramatically changes Army offensive attack capability. As part of an effort to ensure the heavy M777 is sufficiently mobile, the Army completed a "mobility" demonstration of ERCA prototypes last year.

Epstein Says Friend Gave Him Fake Foreign Passport Used in 4 Countries
Jeffrey Epstein's lawyers said Thursday that the fake, foreign passport found in his safe was given to him by a friend and had already been used when he got it.Their claim, in a letter to the judge who will decide if Epstein gets bail, came in response to a prosecution filing that revealed the passport contained stamps from France, Spain, the United Kingdom, and Saudi Arabia.Prosecutors have cited the passport—which was issued in Austria but had a Saudi Arabia address, a fake name and Epstein's photo—as evidence that the accused sex trafficker is a flight risk.Jeffrey Epstein Had ‘Piles of Cash,' Diamonds, Austrian Passport in Safe"Epstein was given the passport at issue by a friend," defense lawyer Marc Fernich wrote."Some Jewish-Americans were informally advised at the time to carry identification bearing a non-Jewish name when traveling internationally in case of hijacking."He never used the document to travel internationally and never presented it to any immigration or customs authority. The passport stamps, predating his receipt of the document, do not reflect Mr. Epstein's entries or exits."The letter did not disclose who gave the passport to Epstein or why he still had the travel document, which was from the 1980s and had long expired.Also found in the safe was $70,000 in cash and 48 small diamonds that prosecutors contend are often kept on hand by someone who needs to make a quick getaway.U.S. District Judge Richard Berman is set to decide Thursday afternoon whether Epstein should

France turns down citizenship for immigrant nurse because she 'works too much'
France has rejected an immigrant nurse's application for citizenship on the grounds that she was working too many hours a week in breach of the statutory 35-hour week and strict limits on overtime. The nurse, whose name and nationality have not been made public, holds three jobs and averages 59 hours a week, which the authorities said placed her "in violation of regulations on working time in France". The 35-hour rule introduced under a Socialist government in 2000 gave France one of the world's shortest working weeks, but it has since been loosened and employees may be permitted to work up to 48 hours a week including overtime.  The Préfecture in Val-de Marne, near Paris, said in a letter to the nurse that it was "postponing" her naturalisation application for two years. The letter was posted on social media by one of her friends, Nicolas Delage. "I find this scandalous," Mr Delage told the online newspaper 20 Minutes. "One reason for granting [French] nationality is work. She is not stealing anyone's work." Sanjay Navy, a lawyer, said immigrants were often denied naturalisation for working too many hours. "I've seen similar cases before this. This is not an isolated decision." Mr Navy said he had seen a number of naturalisation applications by security guards turned down because they had multiple employers and worked too many hours. According to the most recent official figures, some 63,000 immigrants were granted French citizenship in 20

Iran's Foreign Minister Zarif: We Can't "Discount" Possibility of War
On Thursday, National Interest Editor Jacob Heilbrunn interviewed Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif in New York at the Ambassador's residence on the current state of U.S.-Iran relations. The transcript has been lightly edited for readability.Jacob Heilbrunn: With the American shooting down of an Iranian drone in the Strait of Hormuz today, are we on a path of escalation?Mohammed Javad Zarif: I checked with Tehran, and we do not have any information about having lost a drone today. So, we don't know, as of now what has happened. We have the president saying that they shot a drone. We don't know whose drone it is, but we don't have that information. But we are certainly moving in the wrong direction. The fact that the United States has an increased presence in the Persian Gulf doesn't help security or stability in the area—it's a tiny body of water and you cannot have such congested traffic there without something happening.Heilbrunn: A lot of the tension is also focused on the tanker that went missing. Is Iran responsible for that?Zarif: All the information we have is that we confiscated a small tanker that was only carrying a million liters of smuggled oil products—not oil—and that happens quite often in the Persian Gulf because of heavily subsidized prices in Iran of oil products. There is a lot of smuggling from both sea and land borders and we interdict them on a regular basis. So if that is the tanker they'r

Kremlin Opens Door to Changing Constitution as Succession Looms
(Bloomberg) -- The Kremlin raised the possibility of changing Russia's Constitution after a top lawmaker proposed bolstering parliament's powers, in a move that could help to extend President Vladimir Putin's rule.The idea of constitutional amendments, including allowing parliament a say in forming the government, received "a widespread response" and are "a matter for discussion," Putin's spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, told reporters on a conference call Wednesday.Putin in 2024 must step down as president to avoid violating a constitutional ban on more than two consecutive terms. While he's previously ruled out changing the constitution to remain as president, advisers are examining ways to effectively prolong his grip on power, which is already the longest since Soviet dictator Josef Stalin.The Kremlin is considering changing the electoral system in an effort to secure its lock on the lower house of parliament in 2021 elections amid a plunge in popularity of the ruling United Russia party, according to people familiar with the preparations. Keeping a strong hold on the legislature, known as the State Duma, would widen Putin's room for maneuver. It could potentially allow him to switch roles to retain power as head of the ruling party and prime minister with expanded constitutional authority at the expense of the presidency, according to two people close to the Kremlin and a ruling-party legislator.Selecting MembersState Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin, a key Putin ally, used an op-ed article Wednesday i

The announcement solved one mystery — the fate of the missing ship — but raised a host of other questions and heightened worries about the free flow of traffic in the Strait of Hormuz, one of the world's most critical petroleum shipping routes.

Jon Stewart Eviscerates Rand Paul for Blocking 9/11 Victim Funding: ‘It's an Abomination'
One month ago, former Daily Show host Jon Stewart went on Fox News to shame Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for failing to protect 9/11 first responders. Wednesday afternoon, he was back on that network to give the other Republican senator from Kentucky a piece of his mind. In an interview with Bret Baier, Stewart immediately took aim at Rand Paul who, along with Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT), blocked a Senate bill that would extend the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund, making the case that it should be offset by other spending cuts.  Responding directly to Paul, Stewart called his objection "absolutely outrageous," adding, "Pardon me if I'm not impressed in any way by Rand Paul's fiscal responsibility virtue signaling." Jon Stewart Fires Back at Mitch McConnell on ‘Colbert': Stop ‘Jacking Around' 9/11 First RespondersStewart went on to condemn Paul for supporting President Trump's $1.5 trillion tax cut that "added hundreds of billions of dollars to our deficit" and now trying to "balance the budget on the backs of the 9/11 first responder community." "Bret, this is about what kind of society we have," a clearly furious Stewart continued. "At some point, we have to stand up for the people who have always stood up for us, and at this moment in time maybe cannot stand up for themselves due to their illnesses and their injuries. And what Rand Paul did today on the floor of the Senate was outrageous." "He is a guy who put us in hundreds of billions of doll

Chappaquiddick 50 years on: The car crash that forever tarnished Ted Kennedy
He was the handsome young senator from an American political dynasty, widely tipped to win the White House. Heavily favoured to win the Democratic nomination for the presidency, Ted Kennedy looked set to square-off against Republican incumbent Richard Nixon at the 1972 election.But his hopes of emulating his older brother John F Kennedy were irreparably damaged 50 years ago.A car crash in Chappaquiddick would claim the life of a young female political campaigner and forever tarnish his reputation. Here The Independent examines the incident. What happened?On 18 July, 1969, Kennedy, aged 37 at the time, had been attending a party on Chappaquiddick Island, part of the affluent Massachusetts resort Martha's Vineyard.The Massachusetts senator had left the party with Mary Jo Kopechne, a 28-year-old political campaign specialist. He later testified at inquest that she had asked him to drop her back at a hotel.At around midnight, Kennedy's car swerved off a narrow, unlit bridge with no guardrails and plummeted into the Poucha Pond.He escaped the sinking saloon. Kopechne did not. Kennedy claimed he made several attempts to save her before giving up and returning to the party on foot.Later, he said he returned with two friends for another rescue attempt but that was foiled by the strong tide.Ten hours passed before the senator reported the incident to the police, minutes before Kopechne's body was recovered from the vehicle.

All the Secret Reasons Why the AR-500 Rifle Is so Deadly
The original AR-15 platform rifle fires the 5.56-millimeter round. Weighing between fifty-five and seventy-seven grains (.6 ounces), the 5.56 round is suitable for incapacitating man-sized targets.The endless adaptive nature of the AR-15 rifle platform has made it one of the most modifiable weapons in history. From buttstocks to barrels, the rifle can be customized in a variety of ways to improve power, functionality and appearance.(This first appeared in May 2019.)One major innovation in the field of power is the AR-500. The AR-500 fires a modified .500 Smith & Wesson bullet, the .500 Auto Max, resulting in a rifle that manufacturer Big Horn Armory claims can down "any dangerous game animal on Earth" and disable "any vehicle." The result is a weapon that appeals to big game hunters and tactical teams alike.The original AR-15 platform rifle fires the 5.56-millimeter round. Weighing between fifty-five and seventy-seven grains (.6 ounces), the 5.56 round is suitable for incapacitating man-sized targets. The 5.56-millimeter round is banned by many states however for hunting purposes, as it lacks the power to quickly take down deer-sized game. The 5.56 round is also ineffective at penetrating steel engine blocks, the quickest way to stop a moving vehicle.The AR-500 is an AR platform weapon designed to accommodate a modified version of the .500 Smith & Wesson bullet.

Lawyer: El Chapo was whisked away within hours of sentencing
Only hours after receiving a life sentence, convicted Mexican drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman was forced to make a sudden departure to the highest-security prison in the U.S. to serve the term, his lawyer said Thursday. A government helicopter whisked the narco, notorious for his daring jailbreaks, out of New York City on Wednesday after the sentencing in federal court in Brooklyn, said defense attorney Jeffrey Lichtman. For most defendants, there's a lag between sentencing and a decision by the Bureau of Prisons on where to house them.

Iran on Thursday offered to ratify a document prescribing more intrusive inspections of its nuclear program if the United States abandoned its economic sanctions, the Guardian newspaper reported on Thursday, in a proposal that drew U.S. skepticism. Iran could ratify the "Additional Protocol" that gives U.N. inspectors more tools to verify its nuclear program is peaceful immediately if Washington also abandoned the sanctions on Iran, the newspaper quoted Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif as telling reporters in New York.

US has shot down Iranian drone in Strait of Hormuz, says Trump
US  President Donald Trump said on Thursday that a US warship destroyed an Iranian drone in the Strait of Hormuz amid heightened tensions between the two countries. Mr Trump said the USS Boxer took defensive action after the drone closed to within 1,000 yards of the warship and ignored multiple calls to stand down. The president called it the latest "hostile" action by Iran and urged other countries to condemn what he says are Iran's attempts to disrupt the freedom of navigation and global commerce in the strategic waterway in the Persian Gulf region. He said the drone threatened the safety of the American ship and its crew. I want to apprise everyone of an incident in the Strait of Hormuz today, involving USSBoxer, a U.S. Navy amphibious assault ship.

Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 18, 2019 The Pentagon said in a statement that the USS Boxer, an amphibious assault ship, had taken "defensive action" against a drone, but did not mention if the aircraft was Iranian. The Pentagon said the incident happened at 10am local time on Thursday in international waters while the Boxer was transiting the waterway to enter the Persian Gulf. The Boxer is among several US Navy ships in the area, including the USS Abraham Lincoln, an aircraft carrier that has been operating in the nearby North Arabian Sea for weeks.

Trump Says U.S. Warship Shot Down Iranian Drone over Strait of Hormuz
President Trump announced Thursday that a U.S. warship has downed an Iranian drone flying in the Strait of Hormuz."The Boxer took defensive action against an Iranian drone, which had closed into a near distance, approximately 1000 yards, ignoring multiple calls to stand down, threatening [the] safety of [the] ship and ship's crew," Trump told reporters during a White House press conference.The drone was "immediately destroyed," according to the president.The confrontation comes four weeks after Iranian forces downed a U.S. drone that they claimed was flying in Iranian airspace, but which the Pentagon claimed was occupying international airspace over the Strait of Hormuz. It was also just hours after Iranian forces seized a foreign oil tanker traveling in the strait, a major thoroughfare through which one third of the world's oil supply flows. Iranian officials claimed the tanker was transporting roughly 1 million gallons of smuggled fuel."It's a small ship," Iranian foreign minister Javad Zarif said Thursday. "We do it every other day. These are people who are smuggling our fuel."President Trump noted the recent acts of aggression during his Thursday remarks, calling the drone's refusal to stand down "the latest of many provocative and hostile actions against vessels operating in international waters."The U.S. "reserves [the] right to defend our personnel, facilities, [and] condemn Iran's attempts to disrupt freedom of navigation and global commerce," he added.Trump signed an executive order imposi

Ex-University of Illinois PhD Candidate Sentenced to Life in Prison for Murder of Visiting Chinese Scholar
A federal jury sentenced the former University of Illinois physics doctoral student who kidnapped and murdered a visiting Chinese scholar to life in prison on Thursday.Brendt Christensen, 29, was found guilty last month during his trial at the U.S. District Court in Peoria, after his own defense team admitted that he was responsible for 26-year-old Yingying Zhang's death.Though Illinois no longer has capital punishment in state cases, Christensen could have been sentenced to death because he was convicted in federal court. As the jury, which deliberated for over eight hours, did not reach a unanimous vote on the death penalty, Christensen was automatically sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole on Thursday.He reportedly flashed a smile to his defense attorneys after the verdict was read. Christensen abducted Zhang in June 2017 from a bus stop in Urbana, about 140 miles southwest of Chicago, by posing as an undercover officer, prosecutors said. Once back at his apartment, authorities say he raped, choked, and stabbed Zhang, then beat her with a baseball bat and decapitated her.Zhang's body was never found.Body of Slain University of Utah Student Mackenzie Lueck Was Found Bound in Shallow GraveChristensen was implicated in the death when his then-girlfriend, Terra Bullis, wore an FBI wire to the vigil for Zhang's disappearance; Bullis recorded Christensen telling her about how he raped and killed Zh

Overall, about 70 percent of Americans feel that American dream could be grasped, the poll reported, while 29 percent disagree.The 38 percent of Democrats who said they did not believe they could achieve the American dream represented a sharp increase from a decade ago, when 29 percent of Democrats said the same.

Satellite images ‘show US military buildup in Saudi Arabia' amid Iran tensions
The United States is preparing to send hundreds of troops to Saudi Arabia where satellite images appear to show a build up of American forces on the ground. Up to 500 soldiers are to be sent to the Prince Sultan Airbase in the desert to the east of the capital Riyadh, two officials told CNN, speaking on condition of anonymity. Preparations are also reportedly underway for a large missile installation from which Patriot surface-to-air missiles can be launched to protect the base from incoming threats. The moves would likely strengthen the US' controversial relationship with Saudi Arabia, while also responding to rising tensions with Iran which escalated dramatically in recent months. After the US unilaterally withdrew from a landmark 2015 nuclear deal last year and reimposed tight sanctions, Iran announced in July that it had surpassed limits on enriched uranium imposed in the agreement. The country insists it is not trying to build nuclear weapons.A standoff has also ensued in the Gulf, with sabotage attacks on foreign tankers, blamed on Iran by the US. In the latest incident Tehran said it had seized a foreign-owned vessel suspected of being used for oil smuggling out of the country/ The Trump administration has long sought to base troops in the remote region, but the decision to send them to Saudi Arabia comes amid outrage over the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

America will roast for 4 days
Tens of millions of Americans will feel triple-digit heat between Thursday and Sunday. The National Weather Service (NWS) noted that 20 to 30 high temperature records could fall between the Rockies and the East Coast. There will be little relief even at night: The weather agency expects 123 records for the warmest daily low temperature to be either broken or tied this week. The Midwest will see many of the highest extremes on Thursday and Friday, while the East Coast will feel its most intense heat on Saturday.The NWS labeled this excessive heat as "scorching." On Saturday in Washington D.C., the confluence of humidity and air temperatures are forecast to produce a heat index (or feeling) of around 110 F. Meteorologist Michael Ventrice called these forecasted conditions "dangerously hot." Indeed, heat waves kill more Americans than any other weather event.Although climate change doesn't produce weather -- like sprawling fronts of unusually warm air, hurricanes, or wildfire conditions -- it does make these events worse. Any heat wave today, for example, is sitting atop boosted global temperatures. These elevated temperatures are responsible for June 2019 being the warmest June in 139 years of record-keeping, and 18 of the 19 warmest years on record occurring since 2001.This added heat means more record hot weather becoming not just possible, but occurring more frequently. "A barely noticeable shift in the mean temperature from global warming can end up turning a 'once-per-decade' heatwave into a 'once-per-year heatwave' pretty easily," Patrick Brown, an assistant professor in the Departmen

Russia considers joining EU payment system meant to save Iran nuclear deal
Russia has said it may join a European Union payment system aimed at salvaging the Iran nuclear deal if it is expanded to include oil purchases.  The system, called Instex, is designed to facilitate payments to Iran despite the US trade sanctions reimposed on the country after Donald Trump pulled out of the landmark agreement in 2018.  With its economy reeling from the US blockage of crucial oil exports, Iran said this month it would begin enriching more uranium than allowed by the "joint comprehensive plan of action". Tensions with the United States and United Kingdom have risen following several attacks on tankers in the Gulf. Iran said on Thursday it had seized a foreign oil tanker that was "smuggling fuel". In a not-so-subtle reference to the United States, Vladimir Putin's spokesman on Thursday called Instex an "important initiative" to protect European companies from "illegal attempts by third countries to limit their activities". He said Russia was watching to see how well it functioned. "With consideration of the initial experience using this system when it is activated, we can't exclude our cooperation in this," the spokesman said.  Foreign minister Sergei Lavrov, however, complained on Wednesday that Instex was only covering deliveries of food, medicine and other humanitarian aid, "which aren't banned by the Americans anyway". To bolster Iran's economy and ensure the survival of the deal, Instex would need to facilitate oil exports as well, he said.  "Payments of a few milli

Iran seizes oil tanker in Strait of Hormuz
Iranian Revolutionary Guards on Thursday said they had seized a foreign oil tanker in the Gulf, raising fears for maritime security in the Strait of Hormuz. The vessel, which was said to have been smuggling fuel to foreign customers, was intercepted south of Iran's Larak Island in the strategic Strait of Hormuz on Sunday and its 12 crew members arrested. "In a bid to identify and fight organised smuggling . . . the patrol boats of the Guards' naval forces in the Persian Gulf abruptly stopped one of the foreign vessels which carried 1 million litres of smuggled fuel," a statement by the Guards' naval forces said.   However, mystery surrounded the capture of what was thought to be the Panama-flagged MT Riah, which went missing over the weekend, as no country came forward to claim ownership. Hormuz: the strategic strait that may plunge US and Iran into war The MT Riah, which began her journey on July 5 near a port off the coast of Dubai in the United Arab Emirates, went missing on July 14.

Fox News Host: ‘I'd Grab My Wallet' if I Met ‘the Squad'
Fox News host Jesse Watters appeared to a make a racially insensitive joke about the Democratic representatives who are members of "the Squad" on Thursday. During a guest appearance on Fox & Friends, the anchor was asked by a member of the live audience what he would do if he had the chance to sit down with Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA)."First, I'd grab my wallet," Watters said, eliciting laughter from the audience.It's possible that Watters was referring to progressives' proposals to raise taxes on wealthy Americans, rather than suggesting one of them might be willing to pick-pocket him. But the comment seemed to highlight negative stereotypes of people of color, the morning after President Donald Trump elicited chants of "Send her back!" pointed at Rep. Omar at a widely condemned rally in North Carolina.Watters went on to explain that he didn't think he would "get along too well" with the four women.Trump attacked the four congresswomen in a series of tweets on Sunday, saying they could leave the U.S. and go back to where they're from even though all of the congresswomen are American citizens.

Ferrari's 812 Superfast could get Spider-ized
While details about this version of the model are virtually non-existent, considering that Spider-ized cars are simply drop-top renditions of the standard models, the specs are reasonably predictable -- we can expect them to line up relatively closely with the existing Superfast. With the Ferrari 812 Superfast having a starting MSRP of $363,730, the Spider version's price tag is expected to only go up.
