Supreme Court Rebuffs Businesses, Won't Topple Regulation Precedent
(Bloomberg) -- A divided U.S. Supreme Court rejected calls by business groups to overturn two decades-old rulings that have given federal agencies broad power to interpret their own regulations.Voting 5-4 on the central issues, the court on Wednesday reaffirmed rulings from 1945 and 1997 that require judges to defer to an agency on ambiguous regulations as long as its approach is reasonable.Chief Justice John Roberts joined the court's liberals in the majority. Writing for the court, Justice Elena Kagan rejected contentions that federal agencies have grown too powerful and that judges should have the primary responsibility for interpreting unclear regulations."It is no answer to the growth of agencies for courts to take over their expertise-based, policymaking functions," Kagan wrote. Her opinion laid out new guidelines for when courts should yield to agencies.Business groups said deference to agencies on the meaning of regulations leads to onerous and unpredictable rules and leaves companies vulnerable to penalties when an agency shifts its thinking. Trade groups representing the oil, mining, farming and manufacturing industries were among those urging the court to jettison the prior rulings.Defenders of the earlier rulings said they give agencies flexibility to account for changing circumstances.The ruling came on the penultimate opinion day of the court's nine-month term. The court will issue its final opinions Thursday and is expected to rule on partisan gerrymandering and the Trump administration's bid to include a citizenship question on the 2020 census form. The case is Kisor v. Wilkie, 18-15.(Updates with excerpts from opinion in fourth paragraph.)To contact t

Trump news - LIVE: President castigates Japan and claims he's 'hotter than before' in wild Fox interview, as son laments being spat on in bar
Donald Trump has given a wild interview to Maria Bartiromo on Fox Business, declaring, "Almost all countries in this world take tremendous advantage of the United States, it's unbelievable!" The president claimed Japan would watch a Third World War "at home on a Sony TV" rather than come to America's aid (ahead of a trip there for the G20 summit), attacked Twitter, accused retired FBI special counsel Robert Mueller of deleting incriminating text messages and said Iran "does not have smart leadership" and is "going down the tubes". On Capitol Hill, the House of Representatives passed an emergency spending bill securing $4.5bn (£3.6bn) to address the humanitarian crisis at the US-Mexico border, as a horrific picture of a drowned migrant father and daughter emerged provoking new public anger.It emerged meanwhile that Mr Trump's son Eric had been spat on in public.Please allow a moment for our liveblog to load

U.A.E. Splits With U.S. Over Blame for Oil Tanker Attack in May
(Bloomberg) -- The United Arab Emirates appeared to distance itself from U.S. claims that pinned attacks on oil tankers near the Strait of Hormuz on Iran."Honestly we can't point the blame at any country because we don't have evidence," Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah Bin Zayed Al Nahyan said on Wednesday in Moscow. "If there is a country that has the evidence, then I'm convinced that the international community will listen to it. But we need to make sure the evidence is precise and convincing."While an investigation by the U.A.E., Norway and Saudi Arabia concluded that a "state actor" was most likely behind the incident in May, no nation was singled out. Still, U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton has said that Iran was almost certainly responsible.The attack predated the pair of strikes in the Gulf of Oman this month that the U.S. has also blamed on Iran. Vessels were targeted off the U.A.E. coast in May as they made their way toward the Strait of Hormuz, the world's foremost oil shipping chokepoint.Iran's foreign minister has labeled Bolton and the leaders of the U.A.E., Israel and Saudi Arabia as the "B-team" that's prodding President Donald Trump into going to war with the Islamic Republic. Trump slapped new sanctions on Tehran this week.With tensions on the rise across the Middle East, the U.A.E.'s top diplomat tried to change tack after talks in Moscow with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov."We are in a region that is tense and important for the world and we don't want more tension," said Sheikh Abdulla

This is what 2019's perfect smartphone design will look like - and it's not the iPhone 11
The Galaxy S8 and iPhone X brought us the first popular all-screen phones in 2017, but these devices were hardly perfect. The S8 had big top and bottom bezels, and the iPhone X had a wide notch at the top of the display. The iPhone X was then copied by almost every company in the business in the first half of 2018 until smartphone makers started coming up with new designs of their own to increase the size of the screen. We saw all-screen phones with pop-up cameras, slider phones, as well as devices with front and rear displays so a selfie camera wasn't necessary. Samsung, which stayed away from copying the notch last year, came out with the Infinity-O hole-punch display for the Galaxy S10.All these designs are stopgap solutions until display makers can make screens that can go transparent to accommodate a camera underneath. And as it turns out, the world's first perfect all-screen phone is coming a lot sooner than we expected.A few weeks ago, we saw the first teasers from Chinese smartphone makers Oppo and Xiaomi, which were first to show smartphones featuring under-display cameras, the holy grail of smartphone design right now. Soon after that, Oppo shared teasers for an MWC 2019 Shanghai press event where this novel type of phone will be introduced. And now we have a full version of the video that Oppo shared online, according to SparrowNews:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZPMA50dWhEAThe video shows the evolution of the smartphone selfie cam

Supreme Court Strikes Down Federal Ban on ‘Scandalous' Trademarks
The Supreme Court ruled Monday that a federal law prohibiting "immoral" or "scandalous" trademarks from being registered constitutes a violation of the First Amendment.By a 6-3 vote, the justices ruled in favor of a Los Angeles clothing line whose founder wishes to trademark the name "FUCT." The government had argued that the brand's name is "the equivalent of the past participle form of the paradigmatic profane word in our culture."The brand is "pronounced as four letters, one after the other: F-U-C-T," Justice Elena Kagan wrote for the majority. "But you might read it differently and, if so, you would hardly be alone."However, Kagan continued, the federal law prohibiting "scandalous" trademarks "infringes the First Amendment" because it "disfavors certain ideas.""Our decision is not based on moral relativism but on the recognition that a law banning speech deemed by government officials to be 'immoral' or 'scandalous' can easily be exploited for illegitimate ends," Justice Samuel Alito wrote in a concurring opinion.Justices Kagan and Alito were joined by Justices Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, Clarence Thomas, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg in the majority. Chief Justice John Roberts, joined by Justices Stephen Breyer and Sonia Sotomayor, wrote for the minority."The First Amendment protects the freedom of speech," Roberts wrote in his diss

Apple was right again: Here's why a Galaxy Note 10 without a microSD slot isn't a big deal
Like its predecessors, the Galaxy Note 10 is hardly a well-kept secret. We already have renders based on leaked designs and we know almost everything there is to know about the handset. For example, the phone will feature Sound-on-Display technology, which means the entire screen works as a front speaker, but it won't have a headphone jack. The top speaker, 3.5mm port, and Bixby buttons aren't the only things Samsung removed from the phone, though. A brand new Note 10 rumor says the entry-level version of the handset will lack a microSD slot as well. This would be such a massive deal if it were to happen back in August 2015. But the Note 10 is hardly the Note 5, and expandable storage on a high-end Android phone shouldn't be considered a must-have feature anymore.Max Weinbach from xda-developers took to Twitter to post a few things he had learned from a source with access to the Note 10 and Note 10 Pro, and that's where the news comes from:https://twitter.com/mweinbachXDA/status/1142181764695281665As you can see in these tweets, he seems to have confirmed many of the current Note 10 leaks out there aside from the headphone jack, which may actually still be in the picture.https://twitter.com/mweinbachXDA/status/1142182209002102784Weinbach says the Note 10 Pro will have expandable storage, whereas the Note 10 will not.

Are these your ‘animals', Mr Trump? Photo of drowned father and daughter at US border illustrates ultimate human cost of president's attitude towards families desperately seeking a better life
A 23-month-old girl lies face down in the waters of the Rio Grande, tucked into her father's black t-shirt. Her arm is draped around his neck, suggesting she died clutching his body.The image of the bodies of Oscar Alberto Martinez Ramirez and his daughter Valeria have prompted outrage across Mexico and the US, further highlighting the plight faced by Central American migrants hoping to claim asylum in America.Mr Ramirez crossed the river which separates the neighbouring on Sunday, carrying his child, according to La Jornada, a Mexican newspaper.The 26-year-old placed the girl on the US bank of the river and started to return to the other side, to fetch his wife, when his daughter jumped after him.Mr Martinez caught hold of Valeria, but both were swept away by the current. The pair were found dead shortly afterwards.Amid tears and screams, Tania Vanessa Avalos, Mr Ramirez's wife, reportedly described the drowning to police officers at the scene.The family fled their home in El Salvador on 3 April and lived for around two months in a shelter in Tapachula, near Mexico's border with Guatemala.Mr Ramirez decided to swim across the river after reportedly growing frustrated over the family's inability to present themselves to US border authorities and formally requ

Iran drone downing highlights limitations of US unmanned aircraft
US drones have been a key tool in conflicts against insurgent organizations such as the Taliban and the Islamic State group, but Iran's downing of one of the aircraft highlights their limitations against more sophisticated adversaries. While drones offer the significant attraction of not putting American lives at risk and can stay aloft for more than a day, allowing for extended surveillance missions, they can be vulnerable to air defenses, are often expensive, and their loss can lead to sensitive hardware falling into the wrong hands. "I believe sophisticated air defenses will continue to have good chances to shoot down an aircraft like an RQ-4 whenever it is in position to do meaningful surveillance of their territories or other assets," he said, referring to the type of drone brought down by Iran last week near the strategic Strait of Hormuz.

Iran Says New U.S. Sanctions Mark ‘Permanent Closure' of Diplomacy
Iranian officials said Tuesday that new U.S. sanctions mean "closing the doors of diplomacy" between the two countries amid increasingly acrimonious relations.The sanctions, which target the country's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, and other top Iranian officials, are "outrageous and idiotic," President Hassan Rouhani said."You sanction the foreign minister simultaneously with a request for talks," Rouhani complained, before calling the White House "mentally retarded.""Trump's government is annihilating all the established international mechanisms for keeping peace and security in the world," Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi wrote on Twitter, calling the Trump administration "desperate."In response, President Trump issued a warning that attacking American targets will result in disaster for Iran."The wonderful Iranian people are suffering, and for no reason at all. Their leadership spends all of its money on Terror, and little on anything else," Trump wrote Tuesday on Twitter. "Iran's very ignorant and insulting statement, put out today, only shows that they do not understand reality. Any attack by Iran on anything American will be met with great and overwhelming force. In some areas, overwhelming will mean obliteration."Last week, Trump called off airstrikes planned as retaliation for Iran's downing of an unmanned American drone with just minutes to spare.

Knock Knock, Who's There? A 1969 Chevrolet Camaro SS
Orange you glad it's for sale?This 1969 Chevrolet Camaro SS in Hugger Orange is no joke, though. It's for sale right now through Sports Car Digest (SCD) Garage in Charlotte, North Carolina with just 40,000 original miles on the odometer. The Hugger Orange paint code is GMs version of the classic racing orange found on the Z28s, Corvettes and several other ‘60s and ‘70s classic muscle cars. The "Hugger" nickname was used when marketing the vehicle in magazine ads and commercials. The term was a direct nod to the Camaro's impressive cornering abilities.Apart from its desirable color, this 1969 Chevy Camaro SS is a prized possession in and of itself. The first-gen Camaros are especially sought after for their classic appeal and historical value. This Hugger Orange example features a stunning black houndstooth interior that elevates the cabin to new levels. The interior appears to be in excellent condition with no unusual wear and tear. The car was clearly well taken care of and that translates through the photos.This bad boy is powered by Chevy's 350 cubic-inch V8 engine mated to a Muncie four-speed manual transmission. It includes an electronic ignition with power steering and power brakes. This SS has a front disc brake conversion and is equipped with long-tube headers. The V8 fires up on the first crank and settles into a lopey idle. Once you put the Hurst shifter in first gear, the transmission effortlessly shifts through all four speeds with no grinding or issues.

Extending the strike range of attack aircraft such as an F-15, F-35 or F-22 brings great tactical significance in a modern threat environment wherein long range strike weapons used by potential adversaries could make it challenging for the Air Force to base and launch fighters within the proper striking proximity. The first new, high-tech next-generation KC-46A aerial refueling tanker will be delivered to the service later this year, marking the beginning of a long-sought after effort to replace the current aging fleet and better enable attack and ISR missions around the globe, service officials say.(This first appeared last year.)A new tanker, which will of course modernize and sustain the refueling mission for the Air Force, is fundamental to the service's air superiority and rapid deployability priorities.The new KC-46A tanker will build upon the mission current tankers currently serve, meaning it will be forward- stationed at strategically vital locations around the globe to increase mission length and effectiveness, as needed, for a wide-range of aircraft, Air Force developers said.Extending the strike range of attack aircraft such as an F-15, F-35 or F-22 brings great tactical significance in a modern threat environment wherein long range strike weapons used by potential adversaries could make it challenging for the Air Force to base and launch fighters within the proper striking proximity.

NRA shuts down production at TV channel amid leadership coup attempt and legal troubles
The National Rifle Association has shut down production at NRA TV.The NRA on Tuesday also severed all business with its estranged advertising firm, Ackerman McQueen, which operates NRA TV, the NRA's live broadcasting media arm, according to interviews and documents reviewed by The New York Times.While NRA TV may continue to air past content, its live broadcasting will end and its on-air personalities - Ackerman employees who included Dana Loesch — will no longer be the public faces of the NRA.It remained unclear whether the NRA might try to hire some of those employees, but there was no indication it was negotiating to do so.The move comes amid a flurry of lawsuits between the NRA and Ackerman, and increasing acrimony that surfaced after two prominent NRA board members first criticised NRA TV in an article in The Times in March. The separation had become inevitable: The two sides said last month that they were ending their three-decade-plus partnership."Many members expressed concern about the messaging on NRA TV becoming too far removed from our core mission: defending the Second Amendment," Wayne LaPierre, the NRA's longtime chief executive, wrote in a message to members that was expected to be sent out by Wednesday."So, after careful consideration, I am announcing that starting today, we are undergoing a significant change in our communications strategy. We are no longer airing ‘live TV' programming."In a notice to Ackerman's chief executive, Revan McQueen, sent

Bernie Sanders has a radical plan to wipe out undergraduate and graduate debt for all Americans. Here is what's at stakeThe Democratic lawmakers Ilhan Omar, Bernie Sanders and Pramila Jayapal listen as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez joins them in a call for legislation to cancel all student debt. Photograph: J Scott Applewhite/AP What is student debt?Going to university in the US is expensive - costing an average of over $34,000 a year in tuition and fees at private universities - which means for most Americans, the only way of viably pursuing higher education is to take out a student loan.The figures are staggering. An estimated 45 million Americans have student loans, contributing to an overall national student debt of $1.6tn. What student loans are available?The two main options for prospective students are a government-funded federal loan or a private loan from a provider such as a bank, university or state agency. Both are paid back with interest (interest on federal loans is fixed and normally lower than on private loans, which can be expensive and risky and comprise just 14% of student loans).Federal loans come in various forms - including direct subsidized, direct unsubsidized and direct plus for graduates and professionals. There's also Direct Plus for parents, where, as the name suggests, the student's guardians take the full burden.Depending on year and dependency status, undergrads can borrow between $5,500 and $12,500 a year in federal loans; professionals and graduate students have a

Images of drowned Salvadoran migrant and 2-year-old child stir outrage
Shocking images of a drowned Salvadoran migrant and his two-year-old daughter who died while trying to cross the Rio Grande river from Mexico to the United States have sparked outrage, underscoring the dangers faced by asylum-seekers. Twenty-five-year-old Oscar Martinez Ramirez fled El Salvador with his 21-year-old wife and their daughter and decided to make the risky crossing from Mexico to the US on Sunday afternoon, according to a Mexican court report seen by AFP. A series of haunting photographs showing the young father and child lying face-down in water have stirred anger in El Salvador and Mexico, where the government had faced sharp criticism for its treatment of migrants.

Hannity on Mueller Testimony: ‘They Are Harassing the Office of the President!'
Moments after news broke late Tuesday that Special Counsel Robert Mueller agreed to testify before Congress next month in an open session, Fox News host Sean Hannity claimed the testimony was nothing short of harassment of the President of the United States.In a joint statement on Tuesday night, the House Intelligence and House Judiciary Committees announced that Mueller would publicly testify before the House on July 17. The two committees issued a subpoena to compel Mueller's testimony, marking the first time anyone from the special counsel's office will have appeared before Congress to discuss the Russia investigation.The pro-Trump Hannity, who has spent more than two years discrediting the special counsel, devoted much of his program Tuesday night to downplaying the significance of Mueller's upcoming testimony. During a discussion with Fox News personalities Dan Bongino and Geraldo Rivera, the primetime star claimed Mueller's appearance was all just a way for Democrats to take another swing at collusion—something Mueller deliberately did not address in his report."Mueller was clear, [Attorney General William Barr] was clear, Mueller's report on the issue of collusion, conspiracy — that was the fourth time we heard no," Hannity declared. "Now the Democrats want a fifth bite at the apple."Hannity went on to complain that the special counsel speaking publicly for just the second time in more than two years was akin to presidential harassment by the Democrats."Now th

Fox's Shep Smith Torches Trump: We Treat Migrant Children Worse Than Prisoners of War
Fox News anchor Shepard Smith on Tuesday strongly objected to President Donald Trump's assertion that migrant children detained in border detention centers are being treated "very well," pointing out that the conditions these children face would be in violation of the Geneva Convention.After his acting Customs and Border Protection chief John Sanders revealed he resigned from his position amid furor over reports of squalid and filthy conditions at overcrowded detention camps, the president insisted to reporters that he is "very concerned" with the issue. At the same time, he claimed the conditions were "much better than they were under President Obama."Shortly after Trump made his comments, Smith told Fox News viewers that because Trump said "we're treating the children very well," he was going to provide actual reporting on "how those children are being treated."Highlighting the "horrendous conditions" at a detention facility in Clint, Texas, the Fox News anchor noted that one lawyer said children less than 10 years of age were taking care of infants and toddlers."Their clothes covered in snot," Smith added. "No access to toothbrushes or toothpaste or soap. Basic necessities for any of us and all the more so for children."Referencing a segment from his Monday broadcast, Smith went on to highlight just how awful these kids' living conditions were."We reported accurately here yesterday that were these prisoners of war instead of innocent children, those withholding of t

Apple reportedly canceled quantum dot camera technology for the iPhone 11
The iPhones arriving this September will feature more cameras than ever, according to various leaks from the past few months. Apple is said to be bringing triple-lens cameras to the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Max, while the iPhone XR successor will get a dual-lens shooter. Apple will likely bake a bunch of extra camera features into iOS 13 to take advantage of the additional lens, but these have yet to leak.A new story from the UK, meanwhile, does mention a camera feature that Apple has abandoned because of costs.Apple is believed to be the major Nanoco client that canceled a multi-million dollar deal, per The Telegraph, which crashed its stock by 74%. If this kind of stock behavior sounds familiar, it's because it happened in the past with UK companies that lost lucrative supply deals with Apple.Nanoco would not confirm the identity of the customer, but the company did announce a contract with a "large undisclosed US listed corporation" in 2018 valued at £17.1 million ($21.75 million) over two years, which amounted to more than half its revenues. The Telegraph believes that company to be Apple.The two parties were working on advanced image sensors that should have been featured in this year's iPhones, but Apple apparently abandoned Nanoco's quantum dot technology in favor of an alternative.Quantum dot technology allows for "precise control of light that allows for higher-quality digital camera sensors than the silicon ones in today's smartphones," the report notes, adding that quantum dot t

Is Trump Really Headed to War With Iran? Here is What Two Experts Think
America's policy of maximum pressure on Iran continues, with the U.S. Department of the Treasury announcing new sanctions on eight Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) Commanders. That directive was tweeted during a luncheon event on Iran at the Center for the National Interest, which was moderated by Geoffrey Kemp, the Senior Director of Regional Security Programs at CFTNI who also served in the White House during the first Reagan administration as Special Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs and Senior Director for Near East and South Asian Affairs on the National Security Council Staff. The discussion focused on the ongoing crisis, Iran and America's interests, and whether war could be avoided."[Donald] Trump's approach is self-defeating," declared panelist Kenneth Pollack, Resident Scholar for Middle Eastern Political-Military Affairs at the American Enterprise Institute, and both a former Director for Near East and South Asian Affairs and a former Director for Persian Gulf Affairs at the National Security Council. Pollack explained that the hardliners keep claiming vindication, noting that they had warned that the United States might tear up the Iran deal. Pollack emphasized that Iran's Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei started in the moderate camp but has drifted steadily toward a hardline position.At the time of the Iran Deal in 2015, there was a debate between "the pragmatists led by Rouhani" and "the hardliners led by the IRGC."

US border chief resigns amid outcry over treatment of migrant children
The acting commissioner of the US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency, John Sanders, is resigning and will leave his post on July 5, amid an outcry over the treatment of detained migrant children. His departure comes amid mounting public backlash over alarmingly unsanitary conditions at an overcrowded migrant facility in Clint, Texas where the discovery of poor care and lack of access to showers or clean clothing prompted the relocation of 250 detained children. The situation has led immigration activists and Democrats to step up criticism of President Donald Trump's hard-line immigration policies. Mr Sanders, whose resignation was first reported by The New York Times, has led the agency since April, when Mr Trump reshuffled the management of US immigration agencies under the Department of Homeland Security. Before taking over CBP, he was the agency's chief operating officer and had also been the Transportation Security Administration's chief technology officer. A temporary detention facility in Clint, Texas Credit: AFP Mr Trump said he had not ask for Mr Sanders to quit, calling him a good man and saying he did not know why he decided to resign. Dealing with a surge of migrants at the US -Mexico border has been a priority for Mr Trump - but the president has proven unable to push most of his goals through Congress.

Rothmans Replica: 1983 Porsche 911 SC Safari
While it may be a replica of the real deal, this 911 SC is ready for rallying.One of the coolest things about the 1980s was production-based racecars, which were born in order to satisfy motorsport homologation requirements. Nowadays, these vehicles are extremely valuable, due to the fact that many of them were purposefully used and driven hard.Porsche's iconic 911 is one of these vehicles where ownership is expensive, with many examples being restoration items that are usually reserved for collectors. However, this 1983 Porsche 911 SC is both restored and ready for hard driving, as it is a replica of the Rothman East African Safari 911SCRS racecar.Trissl Sports Cars in Florence, Alabama offers this unique Porsche for sale. When the car arrived with them, it needed a full restoration after sitting in a field for 20 years. At that point, they decided to pay tribute to one of their favorite racecars of all time.Martin's Classic Cars in Huntsville, AL rebuilt the 3.0-liter engine, and it features upgrades such as ported and polished heads from Ollie's Engineering, an improved carburetor, Dougherty Camshafts, and race cams. Additionally, the transmission received a reseal and it utilizes a lightweight clutch kit. Trissl believes that there are around 100 miles on the engine build, but they do not have sufficient documentation to prove this, so the vehicle is sold with the true miles unknown.Vintage Auto Craft in Nashville, TN handled the paint on this Porsche, using pictures and measurements from the original Rothmans car to perfect its look.

Here's what Samsung's Galaxy Fold 2 could look like
If you rewind the clock back a bit to before Samsung's disastrous aborted launch of its Galaxy Fold smartphone that was supposed to have been in April, you may recall the company's lofty ambitious that looked beyond the first iteration of this new device. We were hearing estimates last year that Samsung wanted to start the Galaxy Fold's initial production run at a minimum of 1 million units and that the Fold also wouldn't be a one-off. That the company, in other words, was hoping to release a new version of the foldable phone every year, the same way it does with its Galaxy flagship devices.Fast forward to today. We still don't know when Samsung will try again for a release the Galaxy Fold, but it does appear the company is still thinking beyond it, in terms of other foldable devices.A new report out of Korea sheds light on future Samsung foldable smartphones, noting that at least two new foldables are currently in the works.In terms of the design, one of them -- perhaps the Galaxy Fold 2 -- is mentioned as folding vertically, with a sort of clamshell form factor and sporting a 6.7-inch OLED display. It's rumored to be set for a 2020 launch, which of course should be taken with a grain of salt since we still don't have Samsung's first try at this new kind of device yet.According to the report, this next foldable will be differentiated from what Samsung was trying to do with the original Galaxy Fold, which was an attempt to combine elements of a smartphone and tablet. The focus this next time around will supposedly be on "portability," and it

Jeremy Hunt rules Britain out of US-Iran war as Donald Trump and Hassan Rouhani exchange insults
Donald Trump threatened Iran with "obliteration" after the country's president questioned his mental health for imposing sanctions against the Islamic Republic's supreme leader.  The exchange of insults came as Britain ruled itself out of a potential war between the two sides.  Jeremy Hunt, the foreign secretary, told the Commons on Tuesday: "The US is our closest ally, we talk to them the whole time, we consider any requests that they say carefully, but I cannot envisage any situation where they request or we agree to any moves to go to war. "The message we are sending with our partners in the European Union particularly the French and the Germans is that with respect to Iran's nuclear programme, this is a crucial week."

Boris Johnson fails to answer questions on private quarrel
Boris Johnson failed to shut down questions about his private life Tuesday as a round of media appearances served only to bog him down further in questions about character and trust. Johnson, who is running to be the next leader for both the Conservative Party and the nation, has refused to address personal questions despite an ongoing clamor to face public scrutiny after a reported quarrel with his girlfriend last week prompted a police visit. In break from his previous strategy, the front-runner took part in three interviews in less than 24 hours, responding to challenger Jeremy Hunt's criticism that he was a "coward" and needed to face greater public scrutiny if he is to become prime minister.

Acting CBP Chief to Resign amid Backlash over Treatment of Detained Migrants
John Sanders, the acting commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, will resign in the coming weeks as the public outcry over the treatment of detained migrants at the southern border continues to escalate, the New York Times reported Tuesday.Sanders has served as CBP commissioner since President Trump appointed Kevin McAleenan to serve as acting secretary of homeland security following the departure of Kirstjen Nielsen in April.News of the resignation comes as harrowing reports of unsanitary conditions at CBP holding facilities continue to emerge.More than 300 children were removed from a CBP holding facility outside El Paso, Texas on Tuesday after a group of lawyers visiting the facility said children there hadn't been bathed in days and often went to bed hungry, the Associated Press reported.The attorneys' reports added increased urgency to administration officials' requests for additional funding to adequately shelter and provide medical care to the record 144,000 asylum-seekers who arrived at the border in the month of May, and those who continue to arrive each day.In response to those calls, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has announced that the Senate will vote this week on a $4.5 billion aid package designed to allocate more resources to CBP and the Department of Health and Human Services, which assumes responsibility for detained migrants after they are processed by CBP.If passed, the funding will go toward increased manpower, medical care, and courtroom spac

Here's Your Chance To Own A Very Rare Factory 1969 Z28 Camaro
You'll be hard pressed to find a first-generation Camaro is this close to original condition! Representing the last year run of the first-generation of the F-Body platform, this 1969 Chevy Camaro Z28 is a numbers matching car with a lot of important things to note about it. Outside of being from one of the most desirable eras of the nameplate, it's also sporting a rare color and low mileage. The best thing about this car is that it's ready for a new home from Sunnyside Classics. This Camaro has a mere 17,800 miles on the clock since new, and has plenty of life left in it as a street machine, or a show car. Tagged with the original X33, D80  Z28 callouts, this original Z28 has never been messed with. Of the approximate 165,000 Camaros made in 1969, only 20,302 were produced as Z28s, and who knows how many are even left on the road, and even less than that would be in this mileage and condition. More to Read...First Battle Of The Builders Champ 1969 CamaroNow's Your Chance To Own A 2019 Petty's Garage Warrior MustangAdding to the rarity of this being a 1968 Camaro Z28 trim, is the fact that the car is also a 10 Black Paint coded car with hounds tooth interior - making this a very rare gem. According to the ad, and sourced by Camaro Research Group, only about 2-percent of the Z28s that left the factory in 1969 were black, so we're done to around 400 ever made like this. Otherwise, the car is in excellent condition as it sits, with only one repaint done, and completely solid panels. The engine is correct to the factory st
