Trump: Clinton's Guards Should ‘Disarm’

TrumpDuring a much looser rally in Miami on Friday night, Donald Trump, veering way off his scripted remarks, seemed to make another veiled threat against his opponent Hillary Clinton.

In a long exchange about Second Amendment rights, which he falsely claims Clinton will take away, Trump repeated a past suggestion that the candidate lose her Secret Service protection (he has the exact same service).

"I think her bodyguards should drop all weapons," Trump said. "They should disarm immediately. Take their guns away, let's see what happens to her."


Playwright Edward Albee Dies at 88

Edward AlbeeThree-time Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Edward Albee, who challenged theatrical convention in masterworks such as "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" and "A Delicate Balance," died Friday, his personal assistant said. He was 88.

He died at his home in Montauk, east of New York, assistant Jackob Holder said. No cause of death was immediately given, although he had suffered from diabetes. With the deaths of Arthur Miller and August Wilson in 2005, he was arguably America's greatest living playwright.


How Donald Trump Perpetuated the 'Birther' Movement for Years

Trump bortherRepublican presidential nominee Donald Trump acknowledged for the first time today that President Obama was born in the United States -- after years of leading the "birther" movement, casting doubt on the president's birthplace and fueling a raft of conspiracy theories.

Trump, in fact, refused to acknowledge that Obama was born in Hawaii even yesterday in an interview published in the Washington Post, more than five years after the president released his long-form birth certificate.

Pakistan mosque bombingA suicide bombing killed more than two dozen people at a mosque during Friday prayers in Pakistan's Mohmand tribal area near the Afghan border, officials said.

More than 30 others were injured in the attack.

The Taliban splinter group Jamaat-ul-Ahrar claimed credit for the attack. The group claimed that the attack targeted members of a resistant tribal militia. It warned members of such militias to "stop opposing Islam and jihad," the Wall Street Journal reported.

The Mohmand area, near the Afghanistan border, is known to have bases for the Taliban and other militant groups.

Japan court clears way for US Okinawa base relocation

Okinawa military baseA Japanese court has approved plans to relocate a US military base on the island of Okinawa, in a decision likely to anger locals who want to see American military presence removed altogether.

Tokyo wants to move the unpopular Futenma marine airbase from a crowded residential district to a sparsely populated area in the northern part of the island, but the plan has been opposed by many locals, including Okinawan governor Takeshi Onaga.


Deutsche Bank faces new blow as Justice Department demands record $14B

Deutche bankDeutsche Bank faces the prospect of having to tap shareholders for more cash after the U.S. Department of Justice asked Germany’s flagship lender to pay $14 billion to settle an investigation into alleged mis-selling of mortgage-backed securities. The record fine marks the latest blow to the bank, which has run a gauntlet of setbacks since the 2008 financial crisis.

The Department of Justice move was only the first salvo in what could be a lengthy negotiation over the size of the fine, but it raised fears the final penalty will be far greater than expected. Deutsche Bank said on Friday it has “no intent” to settle the issue at “anywhere near the number cited.”

The negotiations are only just beginning. The bank expects that they will lead to an outcome similar to those of peer banks which have settled at materially lower amounts.

But this study, published in science journal “The Cryosphere” Wednesday, is an important landmark in that it’s “polar bear-centric,” researcher Kristin Laidre of the UW’s Polar Science Center told The Huffington Post.
