    Vice President Kamala Harris will lead a delegation to Japan for Shinzo Abe’s state funeral next week and travel to South Korea, holding leader meetings that will focus on threats to Taiwan, regional security, and economic cooperation. Harris will convene with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida on the eve of Abe’s funeral on Sept. 27 and meet with leaders from South Korea and Australia while in Tokyo. “You can assume that Taiwan will come up” during Harris’s meetings with Prime Ministers Anthony Albanese of Australia and Han Duck-soo of South Korea, a senior administration official told reporters.

    Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) received the endorsement of a longtime Democrat and Palm Beach County official on Tuesday, saying that "there is too much on the line" ahead of the November gubernatorial election. Dave Kerner is the county's Democratic commissioner, as well as the former two-term mayor. He is also a former City of Alachua law enforcement officer and served in Florida's House of Representatives as the ranking member of the Judiciary Committee for two terms. "Endorsing Gov. @RonDeSantisFL was the obvious choice this election cycle. Gov. DeSantis' Dem opponent has called for reallocation of resources away from law enforcement. FL cannot afford people like Charlie Crist who wants to defund the police & make our communities less safe," Kerner tweeted.

    Vladimir Putin’s defense minister sent a clear message to the people of Russia on Wednesday: their country is at war not just with Ukraine, but with the entirety of the West. “I cannot but emphasize the fact that today, we are at war not so much with Ukraine and the Ukrainian army as with the collective West,” Sergei Shoigu said in a televised speech, according to TASS. “At this point we are really at war with the collective West, with NATO,” Shoigu added. Shoigu’s warning comes as Putin announces that Russia will be running a “partial mobilization” to better tackle the war in Ukraine, days after a series of resounding defeats on the battlefield in Ukraine as Ukrainian forces have run successful counteroffensives in the south and northeast. In a speech announcing the move Wednesday morning, Putin suggested that the west had been considering using nuclear weapons against Russia and threatened nuclear weapons use in return—without providing any evidence of the west's supposed threats. “To those who allow themselves such statements regarding Russia, I want to remind you that our...
    A plan for the United States to supply Ukraine with new tanks is 'absolutely on the table,' according to a Department of Defense official. Ukraine has been utilizing Soviet-era tanks throughout its counter-offensive against Russia but has requested modern replacements. The US has previously advised European countries to supply Ukraine with more Soviet-era tanks if possible, as any tank provided by a NATO country would require extensive training to use. 'Tanks are absolutely on the table along with other areas,' the official told reporters in anonymity at the Pentagon. 'We're looking at the entirety of the Ukrainian armed forces and considering for the future … what capabilities they will need and how the US and our allies will be able to support Ukraine in building out those capabilities.' The US provided $25 billion in military aid to Ukraine between January 24 and August 3, 2022, according to Newsweek. Ukraine has been utilizing T-64 tanks in its efforts, which were first made in 1966 by Ukrainian tank designer Alexander Alexandrovich Morozov.  Ukraine has been utilizing Soviet-era tanks, the T-64, in its...
    A Las Vegas official who is accused of fatally stabbing a journalist who exposed his martial affair has been charged with murder and could lose his $130,000 salary.  Clark County Public Administrator Robert Telles, 45, was arraigned on Tuesday, officially being charged with the 'unlawful, heinous, senseless murder of [Las Vegas Review-Journal] reporter Jeff German.'   'The Clark County District Attorney, on behalf of the state of Nevada, has officially filed a criminal complaint charging you with a crime of murder,' Judge William D. Jansen said.  Telles, who has not publicly denied the murder, will be represented by a public defender. He will also continue to be held without bail.  German, 69, was found stabbed to death outside his home on September 3, a day after a straw hat-wearing suspect was found on surveillance footage near the journalist's home.  German - who worked in Sin City for most of his career - died of 'multiple sharp force injuries' in a homicide, the Clark County Office of the Coroner Medical Examiner said earlier this month.  His death came after a series of articles...
    Military veterans are killing themselves at more than twice the official government rate, mostly due to uncounted drug overdose suicides, says an alarming study about the real costs of wearing a uniform. Research by America's Warrior Partnership (AWP), a non-profit, found the actual suicide rate of veterans was ‘much higher’ than is reported by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). And those numbers climb higher still when you add drug overdose deaths.  Military suicide rates are alarmingly high and rising, often attributed to the trauma and stress of serving in post-9/11 anti-terror wars, head injuries, continued access to guns, and the difficulty of reintegrating into civilian life.  The study comes as veterans increasingly complain about poor support from the military, and as the Army faces its worst recruitment crisis in decades and a shortfall of as many as 15,000 troops this year. AWP president Jim Lorraine said the non-profit group’s interim study was a wake-up call about ‘inaccurate data’ on veteran deaths and called for faster ‘progress toward preventing former service member suicide’. America's Warrior Partnership (AWP), a non-profit, says...

    Much like Santa Claus himself, Louis “Satchmo” Armstrong devoted his life to “the cause of happiness,” as he once put it, bringing joy to audiences around the globe every time he put his trumpet to his lips or crooned with his instantly-recognizable, gravelly voice. Yet, while Satchmo’s holiday recordings have become standard yuletide fare, he never released a Christmas album during his lifetime.

    A new analysis is explaining how this time period may suggest the end is near for Russian President Vladamir Putin. According to Newsweek's William M. Arkin, the authoritarian president may be running out of options as he fights to maintain his grasp on the country. To support his arguments, Arkin included assessments from army and intelligence officials familiar with all of the events transpiring in Russia. READ MORE: Putin's private army at the center of disturbing reports about their mistreatment of moms on maternity ward: report "Putin's options for the future are bleak, particularly as he increasingly feels the heat of domestic opposition," the first intelligence official said. Per Arkin, the official also noted "the impact of 60,000-plus Russian casualties and as well as the bite of sanctions and the controls on travel as challenges to Putin." Another official also weighed in with what they are witnessing. "We're seeing more and more blaming of Western weapons," says the second official, "as if it is an excuse for why Russia is losing.

    The crest of the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) is seen at their headquarters in Washington, D.C., U.S., May 10, 2021.Andrew Kelly | Reuters Significant changes are coming to the ways federal prosecutors will handle white collar criminal cases, putting a greater emphasis on prosecuting individual executives who commit fraud, a senior official at the Department of Justice said Thursday. DOJ is changing the incentive structure for companies negotiating with the government over cases of corporate wrongdoing, according to the official. The government will give credit to companies that come forward with information and names of individual executives involved in criminal activity, the official said. "Timeliness for information about key individuals will be a key metric for prosecutors who are judging the credit companies get for their for their cooperation," the official said. "If the company comes forward, people may go to jail, and that is the intent here. But the company itself on behalf of its shareholders may avoid a guilty plea." The Department it will also make it much more difficult for companies to get successive...
    As Ukraine’s two-pronged offensive against the Russians continues, one great imponderable troubles U.S. policymakers. Can Vladimir Putin handle the truth? Speaking to one senior administration official this week, he wondered aloud whether and how Putin would respond to the massive blows being delivered against his army, especially if the Russians keep losing ground. Can Putin simply acknowledge what has happened, withdraw, and turn the page? Will he identify and possibly eliminate scapegoats—such as Russian Minister of Defense Sergei Shoigu and some generals? Will he lash out and lay waste to whatever parts of Ukraine he can strike? Or will he use tactical nuclear weapons? A related series of questions also are currently being evaluated by Western analysts. And those revolve around how will the three main groups surrounding Putin respond; the people of Russia, the business elites, and the security services. In the views of one official with whom I spoke, the X-factor is whether the security services will indefinitely tolerate the damage Putin’s catastrophic blunder in Ukraine is doing to Russia. “The people are likely to tolerate Putin’s...

    A senior State Department official said there was no evidence that an external cause lay behind so-called 'Havana Syndrome,' casting doubt on the claims of more than 1,000 spies and diplomats, some of whom are in line for six-figure compensation payments. It is the latest in a string of comments apparently debunking theories that diplomatic staff were targeted with mysterious energy weapons. But it will anger victims diagnosed with headaches, dizziness, vision problems, dizziness and brain fog, symptoms first identified among workers at the U.S. embassy in Havana. 'We have not identified any outside causality in any Anomalous Health Incidents,' Brian Nichols, assistant secretary of state for Western Hemisphere affairs, told Yahoo's Conspiracyland podcast. And he said it was a misnomer to refer to it as Havana Syndrome.  After first being reported in the Cuban capital in 2016, hundreds of people came forward to say they were suffering the same symptoms at U.S. facilities all around the world.  Symptoms, including nausea and debilitating migraines, were sometimes accompanied by descriptions of strange sounds, on some occasions resembling the chirping of cicadas.  'We have...

    This is the moment the King blasts a leaking pen that threatens to ruin his mood just hours after the new monarch was warmly embraced by the people of Belfast. King Charles, sitting inside the royal residence of Hillsborough Castle, Northern Ireland, appeared flustered by dripping ink as he tried signing a book towards the end of his visit. Charles complained about the pen he was using to sign his name, announcing he 'can't bear this bloody thing' as he appeared to furiously rub the ink from his fingers. The Queen Consort later suggested it was leaking and asked for a replacement, as the King briskly turned on his heels and left the room flanked by aides. The faulty instrument was swiftly removed and replaced by flustered courtiers before Camilla sat down to sign the book herself from inside the historic residence.  King Charles, sitting inside the royal residence of Hillsborough Castle, Northern Ireland, appeared frustrated by the dripping ink as he tried signing a book towards the end of his visit Charles complained about the pen he was using to...

    He came all the way from darkest Peru and charmed an entire country—even its queen—after being found in Paddington Station with a label attached to his collar: “Please look after this bear. Thank you.” But now that Queen Elizabeth has gone, Paddington Bear is no longer welcome. In fact, he’s a distinctly unwelcome bear. British authorities published a lengthy guidance document Wednesday advising the estimated three-quarters of a million people expected to queue up to see the late queen’s closed coffin as she lies in state in London’s Westminster Hall on what they should expect, how they should behave, and what they should and shouldn’t bring. And there on the pictogram of banned objects, alongside the hammers and padlocks and whistles and fireworks and folding chairs, is a rather sad-looking teddy bear.

    (CNN)Former President Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama will visit the White House on Wednesday for the unveiling of their official White House portraits -- marking the return of a Washington tradition last celebrated 10 years ago. The pieces, which will hang inside the White House for decades to come, are the first official portraits added to the White House Collection since then-President Obama held an emotional, bipartisan unveiling ceremony for George W. Bush and Laura Bush in 2012.Wednesday's ceremony in the East Room marks a rare occasion for a celebration among two presidential administrations inside 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, where President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden are expected to convene a who's who of administration officials past and present -- from the unique vantage point of having served in both. It was in the same room Obama awarded Biden a surprise Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2017, a teary ceremony that reflected the two men's deep mutual respect. While both like to play up their relationship in public, there are limits to their friendship, officials have...
    Footage from a security camera shows a Georgia election official, who is being investigated for posing as a fake elector for Donald Trump, leading two pro-Trump operatives into a county elections office on the same day last year that a voting machine was breached.  Details of the video emerged on Tuesday. And it sheds more light on to efforts taken by Trump-linked lawyers to find evidence of fraud in the 2020 election, often with the help of local officials. The Georgia breach is already being investigated by the Georgia Bureau Investigation and may form part of the wider criminal probe by the Fulton County District Attorney. The two operatives seen in the video, Scott Hall and Paul Maggio, have already admitted accessing a voting machine at the request of Sidney Powell, a lawyer who took on a leading role in Trump's attempt to overturn the election, according to CNN. The video shows them being escorted to Coffee County elections office on January 7, 2021, by local GOP chairwoman Cathy Latham.  CNN and the Washington Post obtained video of a Georgia...
    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's latest round of public engagements have been compared to a royal tour, with red carpets and photo walkabouts as the couple attend events that are close to their heart this week. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have both delivered speeches during the last two days, with Meghan, 41, opening the One Young World summit in Manchester yesterday, and Harry, 37, speaking at the Invictus Games one year to go event in Germany today. As the couple paid a flying visit to Dusseldorf today, they were invited to sign an official book and enjoy a boat cruise along the Rhine, with blockades put in place along the city's roads. The event had many of the hallmarks of a royal visit despite the couple being classed as private citizens rather than royals by German police — including meeting the crowds outside, some of whom were waving the British flag.  Critics have said that their list of engagements this week 'could have been plucked from their calendar' before they left the Firm.  With two events completed, their schedule...
    The ruling cited the 14th Amendment, which bars anyone who 'engaged in insurrection or rebellion' from holding state or federal office. A judge in New Mexico ordered that Otero County Commissioner Couy Griffin should be removed from office, effective immediately, as a result of Griffin's participation in the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection at the United States Capitol. Griffin is a former rodeo rider who cofounded the group Cowboys for Trump. In March, Griffin announced he would not seek reelection. Later that month, a federal judge convicted Griffin of illegally entering restricted U.S. Capitol grounds on the day of the riots led by supporters of former President Donald Trump. In June, Griffin was sentenced to 14 days in jail and was given a $3,000 fine for his role in the attack. On Tuesday, New Mexico district court judge Francis J. Mathew ruled that Griffin violated the 14th Amendment of the Constitution when he entered the restricted grounds of the Capitol to try to block the transition of power from Trump to President Joe Biden. The 14th Amendment states that anyone who has "engaged...

    Kellye SoRelle, a member of Lawyers for Trump and interim leader of the far-right Oath Keepers militia group, was arrested Thursday morning on conspiracy charges related to the Capitol riot, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for D.C. SoRelle, who attempted to sue every member of Congress, every governor, and every secretary of state in a lawsuit that justified overturning the election using Lord of the Rings logic, was arrested in Junction, Texas. She is expected to appear later Thursday at a courthouse in Austin. SoRelle was indicted Wednesday for conspiring and organizing to impede Congress’ certification of the 2020 presidential election on Jan. 6, 2021. She faces three felony charges, including conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding, obstruction and aiding and abetting of an official proceeding, and obstruction of justice for tampering with documents, including altering or destroying objects to make them unusable in a grand jury investigation, according to the indictment. The pro-Trump attorney faces an additional misdemeanor charge for remaining on Capitol grounds during the attack.
    President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden will host former President Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama to the White House next week for the long-delayed unveiling of their official portraits.  If he had followed tradition, former President Donald Trump would have invited the Obamas to the White House for the ceremony during the spring of 2020.  Trump did no such thing.  That means it's been more than a decade since a first-term president has invited his predecessor for the event, which takes place next Wednesday.  These portraits differ from the modernist pieces of the Obamas that were unveiled at the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery in 2019.  The portrait unveiling ceremony tradition goes back decades.  It originated as a first ladies event - with first lady Lady Bird Johnson inviting Eleanor Roosevelt and Bess Truman to the White House, along with family and friends, for East Room ceremonies.  The last portrait ceremony to happen at the White House was in May 2012 when President Barack Obama (left) and first lady Michelle Obama (right) invited President George W. Bush (center...
    The migration crisis will continue to get worse because there are 'no consequences' for illegal immigration under Joe Biden's policies, the president's top Border Patrol official claims. Raul Ortiz accused Biden of creating an environment that allowed for the unprecedented surge in migration at the southern border over the last nearly two years and said it will continue at an 'exponential' rate under current policies. 'In my experience, we have seen increases when there are no consequences,' the Border Patrol chief said under oath during a recorded deposition with the Florida Attorney General's office. He added in his questioning: 'There is an assumption that if migrant populations are told that there is a potential that they may be released, that, yes, you can see increases.' 'I do think it will increase, yeah,' he said when pressed on if illegal immigration will continue to surge. Despite the second straight month of decreased encounters at the southern border, the figures are still at record-breaking numbers under President Biden and DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas' leadership. Joe Biden's Border Patrol Chief Raul Ortiz said...
    Ukraine’s counteroffensive in the southern part of the country has begun as it looks to liberate areas held by Russian forces, according to an official from the country’s military command. Natalia Humeniuk, the spokeswoman for Ukraine’s Operational Command South, told Ukrainian media on Monday that troops “have started offensive actions in various directions,” specifically toward the city of Kherson, which is strategically located on the Dnieper River and the Black Sea. The counteroffensive has been anticipated for weeks. SEE IT: RUSSIAN FORCES SHIELD MILITARY VEHICLES INSIDE UKRAINIAN NUCLEAR PLANT She did not elaborate on specific targets the troops are looking to liberate, though she told CNN that more information will be provided “after the operation is fulfilled.” Most of the fighting throughout the course of the summer has focused in the eastern and southern parts of Ukraine, and Russia was able to make incremental gains, though at a disproportionately heavy expense. Ukrainian forces, however, have also begun targeting Russian supply lines to cut them off from their resources. Most recently, the international community’s attention has been focused on the Russian-held Zaporizhzhia power...
    Vote Democrat in November, or you may never vote get to vote again. That’s the warning from Colorado’s top election official. In an interview with The Guardian published Sunday, Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold argued that loyalists to former President Donald Trump could destroy American Democracy — should they win office this fall. “What we can expect from the extreme Republicans running across this country is to undermine free and fair elections for the American people, strip Americans of the right to vote, refuse to address security breaches and, unfortunately, be more beholden to Mar-a-Lago than the American people,” Griswold said. Should Democrats not prevail in the upcoming midterms, “the country could lose the right to vote in less than three months,” she said. Griswold herself is up for reelection in November. She is squaring off against a longtime local election official named Pam Anderson — who has spoken out against misinformation relating to the 2020 election and recently defeated extremist candidate Tina Peters in the state’s Republican primary. Anderson has pledged to keep politics out of election...

    Striking surveillance footage shows the dramatic moment a Russian puppet official who switched sides in Ukraine is assassinated by resistance forces. Askyar Laishev worked for Ukraine's internal security service (SBU) before joining the Moscow-backed Luhansk People's Republic as head of intelligence in 2014. But members of Ukraine's National Resistance in the war-torn Donbas, eastern Ukraine got revenge by bombing his car as he drove through the city on August 11. Laishev made his way out of the car after the explosion, the underground fighters said, but died days later in hospital. Askyar Laishev (left) defected to Russia in 2014. He was slain by resistance fighters this month It follows the similar killing of Putin official Ivan Sushko in Zaporizhzhia this week.  The National Resistance stated: 'We emphasize once again that collaborationism is harmful to your health, so every traitor has vain hopes that retribution will not come to him.' Newly released CCTV video shows Laishev's car explode on Shevchenko Street, Staroblisk in Russian-held Luhansk, which fell under Russian control in early July. The huge explosion is followed by the flaming...
    A former prosecutor who assisted in the Mueller investigation into Donald Trump says he believes the Department of Justice will prosecute the 45th president. On Friday, the Department of Justice released a heavily redacted affidavit that was used to obtain a search warrant of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate earlier this month. Agents retrieved boxes of official documents, including classified material that Trump was supposed to leave with the government when he left office. The government retrieved some official documents from Mar-a-Lago in January with the cooperation of Trump’s team. However, officials came to realize the former president had more material. The DOJ subpoenaed Trump to gather the remaining documents. In June, lawyers for Trump claimed he had no more official materials in his possession. That turned out not to be the case, as the FBI raid this month demonstrated. Andrew Weissman, who assisted in the Mueller prove and also served as the top lawyer for the FBI, said on Friday’s Deadline: White House that based on what he’s seen, including the redacted affidavit, signs point to a prosecution of Trump: I...
    (CNN)The Republican nominee to be the top elections official in Minnesota said changing the rules around voting following the 2020 "big rig" was "our 9/11," invoking the terrorist attacks when discussing proposed changes to election laws in the aftermath of former President Donald Trump's loss. Kim Crockett is one of the latest candidates to win the GOP nomination for a secretary of state position who has cast doubt on the outcome of the 2020 election, which she has previously described as "lawless" and "rigged." "We realize people are discouraged and this is still an exceptional nation," Crockett said during a previously unreported radio appearance in early September 2021. "We are still the American people and I'm betting on us. This is a challenge. Maybe we needed a wake-up call. This is our 9/11." CNN KFILE · Kim Crockett, Minnesota GOP secretary of state nominee, called changing voting rules 'our 9/11'In the interview, Crockett was criticizing voting reform legislation. She called the ultimately unsuccessful John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act "a massive threat," to Republicans, who had passed stricter voting...
