Russia denies apologising to South Korea as tensions continue over aerial showdown

Wed, 07/24/2019 - 12:23

Moscow has denied that it apologised to Seoul as tensions continue to rise after South Korean fighter jets fired hundreds of warning shots at a Russian military plane.  On Wednesday a South Korean presidential spokesman said a Russian official had expressed “deep regret” that an A-50 observation plane had violated its airspace the day before near the disputed Dokdo islands. The aircraft had been accompanying four strategic bombers in Russia and China's first ever joint bomber flight over the Sea of Japan.  The Russian official had blamed the intrusion on a “technical glitch” and promised it would be investigated, the spokesman added. But the Russian embassy to South Korea said these statements “did not correspond to reality”.  “The Russian side has not made any official apologies,” it said.  The South Korean spokesman later said Russia had “altered” its account, sending a document that said its planes had not violated any country's airspace and would retaliate if confronted again. China has made similar denials.  On Tuesday, Moscow gave a note to South Korea's military attache protesting the Korean pilots' "aerial hooliganism". Seoul's defence ministry has accused Moscow of “distorting the truth”. Reuters reported that the two sides could hold working-level talks in Seoul on Thursday.  John Bolton speaks with South Korean Defence Minister Jeong Kyeong-doo in Seoul on Wednesday Credit: Handout via Reuters South Korean jets had to fire 360 machine gun rounds and 20 flares to drive off the Russian A-50 that twice violated its airspace, according to Seoul.  The incursion came hours before Donald Trump's security advisor John Bolton arrived in Seoul to try to mend South Korea's relations with Japan, which also claims the Dokdo islands. He and his South Korean counterpart said they would hold close consultations on any further such confrontations. The incident highlighted growing military ties between China and Russia, which held their latest joint naval and aerial exercises in the East China and Yellow seas in May, as well as their more assertive defiance of the United States and its allies in the region.  A Chinese defence ministry white paper on Wednesday accused the United States of “undermining the regional strategic balance” by deploying the THAAD missile defence system to South Korea.  China boycotted South Korea tourism in 2017 in response to Seoul's decision to allow the US to deploy the system.  The white paper also said China was “ready to go to war” to prevent the independence of Taiwan, which receives weapons from Washington. Meanwhile, South Korea is planning to launch its first light aircraft carrier by the late 2020s so as not to fall behind China and Japan's strides in naval aviation. The vessel will reportedly deploy US-made vertical-landing F-35B stealth fighters. South Korea has tried to placate both its security ally, the US, and top trading partner, China. As China amasses economic and military power, it has challenged American dominance in other parts of Asia, offering investment to allies and economic punishment to political foes.

Rep. Tlaib Compares BDS Movement Against Israel To U.S. Boycotting Nazi Germany

Wed, 07/24/2019 - 12:08

Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib compared the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel to Americans’ boycott of Nazi Germany during a Tuesday floor speech.The Michigan congresswoman was speaking against a House resolution passed Wednesday that opposes the movement because it “does not favor a two-state solution and that seeks to exclude the State of Israel and the Israeli people from the economic, cultural, and academic life of the rest of the world,” the text of HR 246 states.Tlaib started by saying she would not allow Congress to attack the right to “boycott the racist policies of the government and state of Israel.”“The right to boycott is deeply rooted in the fabric of our country,” Tlaib said. “What was the Boston Tea Party but a boycott? Where would we be now without the boycott led by civil rights activists in the 1950s and ’60s, like the Montgomery bus boycott and the United Farm Workers grape boycott?”She continued that some of the country’s “most important advances in racial equality and equity and workers’ rights” have been achieved through constitutional, collective action.

Mueller Says Trump Could Be Charged with Obstruction after He Leaves Office

Wed, 07/24/2019 - 12:07

During Wednesday congressional testimony, former special counsel Robert Mueller told lawmakers that President Trump could in fact be charged with obstruction of justice, but only after he leaves office."Could you charge the president with a crime after he left office?" Republican representative Ken Buck asked Mueller during the latter's appearance before the House Judiciary Committee."Yes," Mueller responded simply."You believe you could charge the president of the United States with obstruction of justice after he left office?" the Colorado Republican asked."Yes," Mueller answered. "The OLC [Office of Legal Counsel] opinion says that the prosecutor, while he cannot bring a charge against a sitting president, nonetheless can continue the investigation to see if there are any other persons who might be drawn into the conspiracy."> "Could you charge the president with a crime after he left office?"> > Robert Mueller: "Yes."> > "You could charge the president of the United States with obstruction of justice after he left office?"> > "Yes." MuellerHearings> > -- ABC News (@ABC) July 24, 2019The report describing the results of the nearly two-year probe stated that Mueller's team did not establish a criminal conspiracy between the Trump team and the Kremlin, but left open the question of whether the president had obstructed justice during the investigation. Attorney General William Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein later concluded that there was not enough evidence to charge Trump with obstruction.The special counsel's decision not to reach a conclusion in the report on the obstruction issue has roiled both Republicans and Democrats, with the former accusing Mueller of leaving the door open to speculation on the matter while the latter seeming unsatisfied letting the Trump administration's Justice Department have the final say.Mueller is scheduled to appear before the House Intelligence Committee later in the day for further questioning.

Wed, 07/24/2019 - 11:36

The Swedish company that owns the UK-flagged oil tanker seized by Iran said Wednesday it had finally been able to contact its crew being held on board and they declared themselves "safe". Stena Bulk said in a statement that the ship's captain "advised that everyone was safe with good cooperation with the Iranian personnel onboard".

A 6.4L Hemi Dropped In A Jeep Wrangler Is Awesome

Wed, 07/24/2019 - 10:20

You can thank the mad geniuses at Petty’s Garage for this completely awesome build. There’s little doubt that the Jeep Wrangler is a hot vehicle these days. At a time when an increasing number of SUVs are growing soft, this famous off-roader has kept its rough-and-tumble image by placing capabilities first. Petty’s Garage has found a way to pump things up to the next level by dropping a 6.4-liter Hemi V8 under the hood. While you might not have considered the possibility of racing your Jeep, this build opens all kinds of new horizons.This most definitely is not your average JK. That engine produces a whopping 485-horsepower and 475 lb.-ft. of torque, blowing away anything offered in any production Wrangler. With great power comes the need for excellent grip. That’s where the 35-inch General Grabber X3 tires come in, using big lugs and deep voids to really dig into any surface. The Mopar beadlock wheels allow you to air down the tires so you can ride on sand, mud, or other soft surfaces without compromising grip. Teraflex Falcon Shocks help with managing rough terrain and keeping the wheels from hopping while accelerating hard.Just like any Jeep build, this one comes with some nice accessories to enhance this crazy setup. The fender flairs accommodate the wider and larger tires, keeping rocks from hitting the body and glass. Rugged Ridge short bumpers don’t get in the way of the tires, plus the front one houses fog lights for driving in particularly bad weather. Cube lights are mounted to the top of the front bumper and in front of both A-pillars, which are great for better visibility on a trail at night. There are also AMP Research power side steps, so you get that assistance without having something hanging down and getting caught on trail obstacles.On the aesthetic side of things, Petty’s Garage goes for the sinister black for the Wrangler’s body, wheels, and most accessories. To keep things from getting too heavy, a nice blue is used for Petty’s body graphics, D-rings on the bumpers, and the brake calipers, which adds a nice touch.Petty’s Garage has quite the reputation for building all kinds of vehicles, so no matter your taste you can find something you like.

Poll: Democrats Increasingly Think DOJ Meddled in Mueller Probe

Wed, 07/24/2019 - 08:35

Democrats have become increasingly suspicious that the special counsel's investigation into Russia's influence on the 2016 election was seriously hampered by the Trump administration's Justice Department since the final report on the probe was released in April, according to a new poll.Overall, about 37 percent of voters said they have confidence that Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe was conducted "very fairly" or "somewhat fairly," while 42 said the investigation was conducted “not too fairly” or “not fairly at all," according to the most recent Politico/Morning Consult poll.Those numbers reflect more suspicion about the probe than in April when Mueller's final report was first released to lawmakers and the public. At that point, 46 percent of voters considered the investigation fair, while 29 percent thought it had been carried out unfairly.Since then the number of Democratic voters who think the investigation was compromised spiked 15 percentage points, while the number who think the probe was conducted fairly sank 9 points. Republicans have also grown slightly more skeptical of the investigation, 6 percent more saying they have less faith in it now.The poll also found that voters are split on whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russians during the 2016 election, 42 percent saying the campaign did collude and 41 percent disagreeing. A large majority of Democrats, 72 percent, said they think the campaign did indeed engage in collusion.Mueller is set to testify on the investigation and his report before the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees Wednesday morning.The poll surveyed 1992 voters between July 19 and 21.

South Korea scrambled fighter jets, which fired nearly 400 warning shots at the alleged intruder.

Black man trying to propose to his girlfriend interrupted by security guard accusing him of shoplifting

Wed, 07/24/2019 - 03:21

Cathy-Marie Hamlet started her Facebook post with the good news: She'd gotten engaged.But her fiance kept getting interrupted, she said, as he proposed from the lawn of hard cider company Angry Orchard's tree-filled, 60-acre property in New York's Hudson Valley.Security intruded on the couple's happy moment three times to accuse Ms Hamlet's boyfriend of stealing a T-shirt, including once while he popped the question.Staffers followed Ms Hamlet and her fiance, who are black, to the parking lot as they left, the 32-year-old wrote in her post, which had been shared more than 5,000 times Tuesday afternoon. She believes they were racially profiled."I have never been so humiliated in my life," she said. "[M]yself and some of my friends left Angry Orchard in tears."Angry Orchard has replaced members of the security team involved and removed the manager who was on duty, Jessica Paar, a spokeswoman for Boston Beer Co. – Angry Orchard's owner – told The Washington Post in a statement on Tuesday.The company is also launching new, mandatory training on "security awareness and unconscious bias" for the staff."We badly mishandled the situation and our team overreacted," Ms Paar said, adding, "The situation doesn't reflect our values of respect for all and creating a welcoming environment for all our guests."Ms Paar did not immediately respond to questions clarifying the company's actions against the employees involved.Ms Hamlet wrote on Facebook that she and her fiance, identified by NBC News as Clyde Jackson, had left New York City on Sunday for Angry Orchard's farm in Walden. The occasion: Mr Jackson's 40th birthday. Six friends came along.A woman from security at the cider company approached the couple before they'd sat down at a table outside, Ms Hamlet said. The employee apologised and said she'd have to check Mr Jackson's back pocket, explaining that someone told her Mr Jackson stole a shirt from the gift store.Mr Jackson emptied out his pockets while trying to hide the ring he was about to propose with, Ms Hamlet recalled. No T-shirt was found.Mr Jackson launched into his proposal, she said, but before he could finish, the employee was back – this time saying she needed to check Ms Hamlet's bag because someone told her Mr Jackson gave her the stolen item.Ms Hamlet said she did as asked, even though her bag was too small to fit a shirt. But she questioned the woman's motives: "I know you're just doing your job, but I can't help but wonder if this is because we're Black," her Facebook post said. "We're the only Black people here at your establishment."The woman denied that race was a factor and went away, Ms Hamlet said, leaving Mr Jackson to finish his proposal – and her to accept. People cheered. The friends who accompanied the couple to the farm joined them, hugging and congratulating the newly engaged couple.That's when the Angry Orchard employee came back a third time, Ms Hamlet said. The security woman said that she hadn't realised the friends were a group and that now she'd need to check all of their purses and pockets. More security workers came over, and Ms Hamlet says she found her party facing six employees who claimed patrons, too, had witnessed Mr Jackson stealing a T-shirt."I felt humiliated, especially after one of my white friends made a point of asking them to check her bag for the T-shirt, but they refused to do so," Ms Hamlet told NBC."Call the police! I saw you steal it," Ms Hamlet said one of the security people shouted to another.When Ms Hamlet told the employees to check their security cameras – which the staff said existed – the employees started filming the group and took a picture of Ms Hamlet's license plate, according to Hamlet. Asked whether Angry Orchard had reviewed security footage, Ms Paar said she would have to look into it.With the dispute escalating, the couple and their friends "decided to leave rather than be attacked," Ms Hamlet wrote online, saying she has "no reason to steal a $28 T-shirt."She vowed not to drink Angry Orchard again.Angry Orchard said in a statement tweeted out Tuesday that it began investigating the incident Ms Hamlet described as soon as it learned about the events. The security team involved "approached a group of guests based on what they thought was credible information at the time," Angry Orchard said in an earlier statement to People magazine.Ms Paar said she reached out to Ms Hamlet on Monday and spoke with her on the phone to apologise.Ms Hamlet did not respond to a request for a comment, and Mr Jackson could not be reached.Angry Orchard was the latest company to scramble to address stories of employees singling out black customers. Starbucks faced accusations of racial profiling last year after a store manager called the police on two black men as they waited for a meeting.The incident led the coffee chain to close more than 8,000 US stores for a day-long staff training on racial bias. Companies like Sephora, Saks Fifth Avenue, Old Navy and Walmart have grappled with similar scandals, responding with investigations, new training and firings amid outrage.Eric Yaverbaum, chairman at public relations firm Ericho Communications, said he thinks Ms Hamlet's story should prompt other companies to think more proactively about addressing racial profiling with their employees – to prevent incidents, rather than apologise afterward."The worst time to prepare is when the tide's rising," he added. "The tide's rising on this issue, period ... Address that in your workplace before it becomes a problem."Ms Hamlet's dismay at Angry Orchard was about more than the spoiling of a joyful day, and she closed her Facebook post by telling the company that if they didn't want black patrons, it should "put a sign on the door so that we know we are not welcome."She told NBC: "It's sad that in 2019 we still need to have these conversations."The Washington Post

Governor: Telescope protests about treatment of Hawaiians

Tue, 07/23/2019 - 21:02

The governor of Hawaii acknowledged Tuesday that an ongoing protest about a telescope planned atop the state's highest mountain is also about addressing the treatment of Native Hawaiians going back more than a century. Gov. David Ige said he would ask Hawaii County's mayor to lead efforts to find common ground with Native Hawaiian protesters blocking construction of the Thirty Meter Telescope at the summit of Mauna Kea, a site considered sacred by many of the protesters. About 1,000 activists gathered Tuesday halfway up Mauna Kea in opposition to the $1.4 billion telescope, marking the ninth day of the protest.

Gambia's ex-president accused of ordering migrant slaughter

Tue, 07/23/2019 - 20:32

Gambia's former president Yahya Jammeh ordered the massacre of some 30 migrants he said were "mercenaries" sent to topple him in 2005, a member of the former strongman's hit squad told a truth commission on Tuesday. The testimony comes a day after another army officer accused Jammeh of ordering the murder of a leading journalist who worked for an independent newspaper and wrote articles about corruption that marked Jammeh's iron-fisted rule for 22 years. Omar Jallow, a former officer in the Presidential Guard, said about 45 Europe-bound migrants comprising nationals from Ghana, Nigeria, Senegal and Togo, were arrested on a beach while trying to get to Europe.

The Curious Case of a Black Man Wanted for Murdering a White Child in Small-Town America

Tue, 07/23/2019 - 20:00

HBOOral “Nick” Hillary is a military veteran and All-American collegiate soccer player (and Division III national champion) who, in 2011, became the prime suspect in the murder of his former girlfriend Tandy Cyrus’ older son, 12-year-old Garrett Phillips. There was no physical evidence linking him to the crime, nor any rational motive, but police zeroed in on him almost exclusively from the start. In the tiny upstate New York town of Potsdam, Nick soon became notorious for supposedly committing this heinous slaying. Almost three years later, on February 2, 2015, he was indicted for the crime, this despite the case against him being completely circumstantial.Nick, by the way, is black. And the Potsdam community is predominantly white.Race is the prime factor of Liz Garbus’ excellent new two-part HBO documentary Who Killed Garrett Phillips? (premiering July 23 and 24), since numerous elements of its story suggest that the color of Nick’s skin played a big part in his eventual prosecution. Yet while the latest from director Garbus (What Happened, Miss Simone?) is, first and foremost, a saga about criminal justice system inequity, it’s also something more: an unsolved mystery about the death of a young boy that’s woefully short on concrete answers.What’s known for certain is that on the afternoon of Monday, Oct. 24, 2011, between approximately 4:55 p.m. and 5:08 p.m., Garrett Phillips was fatally strangled and suffocated in his apartment at 100 Market Street (he passed away from his injuries approximately two hours later at the hospital). Hearing disquieting noises from Garrett’s place, neighbors called the police. The responding officer thought he heard sounds coming from inside. Once he gained entry, however, all he found was Garrett, as well as signs that the perpetrator had jumped out a rear window to the street below.‘Behind Closed Doors’: How a 13-Year-Old Girl’s Murder Ignited Class WarfareThe Wildly Popular TV Host Accused of Killing People to Boost His RatingsThere were no eyewitnesses, but trace amounts of DNA were discovered beneath Garrett’s fingernails. After speaking to the Phillips family, detectives quickly focused on Nick, a father of five who’d begun dating Tandy after meeting her at a bar, and whose relationship with her had ended over reported tensions between him and Tandy’s two boys. Nick had an alibi (he was at home with his eldest daughter, and then beginning at 5:21 p.m., with his friend/colleague Ian), and his DNA didn’t match what was found on Garrett. He also had no reason to commit murder, unless one believed that he wanted revenge against Garrett because he blamed the boy for his split with Tandy.Nonetheless, rather than chasing any other leads or considering other possible suspects, the Potsdam cops made Nick their sole target. In damning video presented by Who Killed Garrett Phillips?, local and state police officers call Nick in for an interview under false pretenses, then grill him on his culpability, and finally physically bar him from leaving—and, shortly thereafter, force him to strip nude for photos. They do this to see if he has injuries consistent with a scuffle with Garrett or a fall from a tall window. But given that cops later testify that such a practice was never used before, it reeks of demonizing intimidation. The fix is in, it seems, and that impression only mounts when District Attorney Nicole Duvé decides to not arrest Nick (due to lack of evidence)—and, as a result, loses an election to new DA Mary Rains, who campaigned on the promise of bringing Nick to justice.That it takes nearly 30 months to indict Nick—this after a first indictment is thrown out because Rains harassed Nick’s daughter during a deposition—is merely one of many signs that something crooked is being perpetrated in Potsdam. Guided by interviews with nearly all of the principals involved (save for Tandy), Who Killed Garrett Phillips? is a real-time portrait of a racially charged railroading. The DA’s office refuses to recognize the flimsiness of their circumstantial case, which is almost wholly predicated on security camera footage of Garrett skateboarding in the school parking lot minutes before his death, and Nick leaving the same area moments later in his car. Their central argument: because Nick turned left out of the lot, in the direction of Garrett, rather than turning right to return directly home (which is where he claimed he went), he was clearly “hunting” the boy minutes before the murder.Nick’s inability to properly explain this behavior/discrepancy is certainly suspicious. As Garbus’ film elucidates, though, it’s the only thing that casts doubt on his innocence; even a late DNA test that links him to the homicide (after numerous prior exculpatory ones) proves inadmissible in court. Consequently, reasonable doubt is pervasive, and that’s underscored by numerous scenes, shot over years, of Nick caring for his kids with devotion and compassion, even in the face of enormous community vilification.Nick Hillary, one of the subjects of the HBO documentary Who Killed Garrett Phillips? HBOWho Killed Garrett Phillips?’s access to Nick, his lawyers, Garrett’s relatives, news reporters and the trial itself is comprehensive, and its timeline-centric storytelling is lucid and nerve-wracking. If the film feels like it sides with Nick’s position, it’s because of both the time it gets to spend with him, and his persuasive declarations of innocence. No matter how often police officers and prosecutors contend that Nick is a cold-blooded murderer, the person seen through Garbus’ lens comes across as a Wronged Man. Which means, per The New York Times’ Albany Bureau Chief Jesse McKinley, that either Nick is a pathological fiend, or there’s still a killer on the loose—two options that are equally chilling.Like many recent true-crime series, Who Killed Garrett Phillips? is a tale without a definitive conclusion. Still, there’s no escaping the fact that, in this instance, police bias seems to have heavily influenced the circus that erupted in and around Potsdam. Nowhere is that more evident than with regard to John Jones, a sheriff’s deputy who had dated Tandy until she left him for Nick, and whose role in immediate post-murder events—calling dispatchers to get intel on what was happening; staying with Tandy overnight and then accompanying her, hand in hand, to police interviews—was more than a bit fishy. Jones had a clear motive to both kill Garrett and frame Nick—namely, his furious resentment at having been replaced by a black man—but he barely registered on his fellow cops’ radar. And when Jones was photographed by cops, you won’t be surprised to hear, he was allowed to keep his clothes on.Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.
