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

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

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

Robert Mueller to testify publicly to Congress over Russian probe
Robert Mueller, the US Special Counsel who issued a report in April on Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, has agreed to testify publicly next month after two House panels issued subpoenas to him. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff said in a joint statement that the special counsel has agreed to testify about the report he issued in April about possible Russian connections to Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign. The Justice Department declined to comment. Mr Schiff told reporters shortly after the announcement that Mr Mueller was reluctant to testify but agreed to honour the subpoenas. He said there would be two hearings on July 17 "back to back," one for each committee, and they will also meet with him in closed session afterwards. The committees have been in negotiations with Mr Mueller for more than two months about his testimony. But he has been hesitant to testify and speak about the investigation beyond a public statement he issued last month. In a letter to Mr Mueller accompanying the subpoenas, the committee chairmen said "the American public deserves to hear directly from you about your investigation and conclusions."

President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, a leftist who took office in December vowing to protect migrants' rights, has come under fire over an AFP journalist's images last week of heavily armed National Guardsmen forcibly detaining two women and a girl at the Rio Grande river, across from El Paso, Texas. International law protects the right of undocumented migrants to cross borders to seek asylum, and Mexico had not typically stopped them from doing so at its northern border.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Venezuelan president Nicolas Maduro's ex-spy chief reveals new details of plot topple him
The former spy chief to embattled Venezuelan president Nicolas Maduro has revealed new details of the plot to oust him including code names, secret meetings and a back channel to the Americans.  Gen. Manuel Ricardo Cristopher Figuera, who fled the country after the plot collapsed in May, laid bare the full scale of the plan during an interview with The Washington Post.  Mr Figuera was head of the Venezuelan intelligence police force SEBIN but became disillusioned with Mr Maduro's leadership as the country spiraled into economic and political chaos this year.  The decision by Juan Guaido, an opposition politician and leader of the National Assembly, to declare himself interim president in January triggered months of turmoil, splitting the international community.  Mr Figuera said that while in post he was taken aback by Mr Maduro's apparent reliance on Raul Castro, the former brother of Fidel Castro who until last year was the Cuban president.  He said that once Mr Maduro interrupted a meeting when Mr Castro called and said after the conversation that a team of Cuban technicians would be dispatched to help stop power outages.  "Raul Castro was like an adviser for Maduro," Mr Figuera said. The comments add to US claims that Cuba as well as Russia is helping prop up Mr Maduro's regime.  Mr Figuera also made allegations against Iris Varela, Mr Maduro's prisons minister, claiming she demanded 30,000 rifles to arm male prisoners she had trained up.  The al

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." Mr Trump signed an executive order imposing financial sanctions on Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran's head of state, and several senior military commanders on Monday in retaliation for the downing of a US surveillance drone last week. Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei ws placed under fresh US sanctions on Monday US officials said they expected to sanction Javad Zarif, the foreign minister, in the near future. Mike Pompeo, the US Secretary of State, simultaneously said the US was ready for talks with Iran without pre-conditions.  Hassan Rouhani, the president of Iran, said in a televised address on Tuesday that the mixed messages showed the White House had "lost its mind."

Stephanie Grisham named new White House press secretary
Melania Trump's spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham has been appointed as the next White House press secretary and communications director.  Ms Grisham, who has been the First Lady's communications director since March 2017, will take over from the president's current spokeswoman Sarah Sanders in July. The appointment combines the job with the more strategic role of communications director, which has been vacant since March.  She takes on the role at a crucial period for Donald Trump, the US president, who formally launched his re-election campaign last week. The president is known to place a high value on staff loyalty and Ms Grisham is one of a dwindling number of original staff from the 2016 election campaign to have remained in the White House. Mr Trump fuelled speculation he was considering her for the post, describing her as "terrific" when discussing potential candidates.  Ms Grisham was part of the Trump campaign's communications team and originally served in the West Wing before she took over Mrs Trump's press team. She has been a more frequent presence at the president's recent events, including ones the First Lady has not attended. It remains to be seen whether Ms Grisham will resume the traditional White House press briefings, which have been few and far between under Mrs Sanders.

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

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.

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.

The Trump administration on Nov. 5 asked the conservative-majority court to throw out three lower court rulings that blocked the Republican president's 2017 plan to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program implemented in 2012 by his Democratic predecessor Barack Obama. In the meantime, the DACA program remains in effect despite Trump's efforts to terminate it, part of his hard-line immigration policies that have become a hallmark of his presidency and his 2020 re-election campaign.

Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade on Tuesday downplayed concerns about the squalid and appalling conditions within border immigration detention centers, saying that migrant children were "never going to have a Hyatt at the border."Amid reports that hundreds of immigrant children were recently removed from an overcrowded and filthy Texas border facility in which they'd been detained without soap, toothpaste or clean clothes, the Fox News morning show welcomed on acting ICE Director Mark Morgan to discuss the growing humanitarian crisis—a crisis Kilmeade has likened to the 9/11 terrorist attacks.Noting that "one of the concerns" is over the conditions migrant children are being detained in, co-host Jedediah Bila asked Morgan how accurate the reports were about how unsanitary the detention centers are."So they're absolutely some truth to that and that's why we've been asking Congress for a very long time to pass this supplement," Morgan replied. "Again, the border patrol stations, they were designed for adults to—only for a few hours and be removed."After Morgan claimed the Trump administration doesn't want children to suffer through these conditions either—before once again saying it was up to Congress—Kilmeade then rallied to his guest's defense."Mark, you're never going to have a Hyatt at the border," the pro-Trump host declared.

Hackers linked to China stole private data from wireless telcos around the world
For a few years now, high-ranking US intelligence officials warned that Huawei is a security threat for America and its allies.

However, these security concerns are the basis of the recent bans against the Chinese conglomerate. The company can't do business with US companies, and it can't provide telecom equipment in the US. Add to that the complex US-China trade war, and it's easy to see why Huawei has been in the spotlight lately.But just as Huawei is trying to fix these issues and improve its image in dealings with other countries, a scathing report from a cybersecurity company tells us that a group of hackers tied to the Chinese government has been hacking more than a dozen global telecommunication companies for years, and stealing large amounts of personal and corporate data. The report doesn't implicate Huawei in any way but makes it clear that a nation-state is responsible for the cyber heist, with China being the likeliest candidate.Cybereason says the attackers compromised companies in more than 30 countries over the past few years with sophisticated attacks that were aimed at obtaining permanent access to data, copying personal data, and avoiding detection, Reuters reports. These attacks occurred in stages, with the hackers changing strategies for different missions and adapting to avoid being discovered by cybersecurity
