Trump Orders More Sanctions on Iran After Attack on Saudi Arabia
(Bloomberg) -- U.S. President Donald Trump ordered tighter sanctions on Iran days after strikes on Saudi Arabia's biggest oil installation rattled energy markets and raised the specter of a slide toward regional war."I have just instructed the Secretary of the Treasury to substantially increase Sanctions on the country of Iran!" Trump said in tweet.Trump didn't say what the new measures may involve. The U.S. has already imposed sweeping sanctions on much of Iran's economy -- especially its oil sales -- since exiting the landmark 2015 nuclear deal last year in an effort to curtail Tehran's regional influence and military capabilities. Tightening U.S. penalties have battered the Iranian currency, driving up prices and causing shortages. Iran is gradually scaling back its commitments under the deal and has said it won't reopen talks without sanctions relief.The confrontation has sporadically convulsed the Gulf, with the strikes on oil tankers, an American drone and a key pipeline pushing the region to the brink of open conflict. Saturday's attack on the heart of the Saudi oil industry drove tensions to new heights.Trump's announcement comes hours before Saudi Arabia unveils what it says is evidence of Iran's involvement in the attack, which shook crude markets and slashed output at OPEC's largest producer. U.S. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo is also due to arrive in the kingdom on Wednesday.While Trump hasn't directly blamed Iran for the attacks, Pompeo has, and U.S. officials have said the location of the dama

Trump gives California grief - but also takes its money
President Donald Trump rarely passes up the chance to throw a sharp elbow at left-leaning California, but he showed Tuesday he's more than happy to cash in there with a lunch-dinner-breakfast-lunch fundraising blitz expected to scoop up $15 million from wealthy Republicans in two days. "There's not been a president in living history that is as unpopular in the state of California as Trump," said Mike Madrid, a GOP political consultant who is an outspoken Trump critic. With protesters not far away, Trump kicked off his moneymaking Tuesday with a $3 million Bay Area luncheon, to be followed by a $5 million Beverly Hills dinner at the home of real estate developer Geoffrey Palmer.

Israeli Exit Polls Show Netanyahu's Election-Redo Gambit Failed
(Bloomberg) -- Israel's election do-over looked set to produce a dramatic deadlock between legally embattled Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his political opponents, with no clear sign who will form the country's next government.The lack of a decisive victory would be a stunning setback for Israel's longest-serving leader, who gambled on a revote to strengthen his political hand -- and possibly keep himself out of jail -- after a disappointing result in April. It would also thrust Israel into further political turmoil and drag out policy paralysis at a time when diplomatic and regional security challenges are mounting.Netanyahu's nationalist Likud and former military chief Benny Gantz's centrist Blue and White are running neck and neck, the exit polls indicated. But each would need to bring in governing partners, and neither has the support of 61 of parliament's 120 lawmakers, the polls showed. The political horsetrading will be hot and heavy in the coming days as Netanyahu, who is battling corruption charges, and Gantz each try to line up the most support. There's also pressure to yoke their parties in a national unity government, a move that might require Netanyahu to step aside -- or be forced out.While the exit surveys suggest Netanyahu, popularly known as Bibi, may lose his grip on power, it's too early to eulogize him. Netanyahu is known as "the magician" for his deft political maneuvering, and he's likely to try to peel off some backing from the opposing center-left camp."The results here are

‘Wicked' Sets 2021 Release Date; Here's Everything We Know
Somewhere, over the next few years, a movie of Wicked will finally be made. Universal Pictures has long held the rights for an adaptation of the hit Broadway show, which itself is based on the popular novel of the same name that revises the story and characters from The Wizard of Oz. The studio has set a few different release dates throughout this decade, but now the screen version is aiming for a late 2021 opening.  That gives Universal a couple years to still finalize the details and get the movie into production, but in the meantime here's everything we know about Wicked: What is the movie about? Wicked is a prequel to The Wizard of Oz (L. Frank Baum's original book and the popular 1939 movie) focused on the origin of Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the West...
