Trump comments on London attack draw rebuke from United Kingdom

Baby Trump rides againPresident Trump set off another spat with the United Kingdom on Friday with tweets that appeared to blame British security for a terrorist attack.

They drew a swift rebuke from Prime Minister Theresa May.

"I never think it's helpful for anybody to speculate on what is an ongoing investigation," May told reporters in London.

During an early-morning tweet barrage, Trump said security officials need to be more aggressive in thwarting terrorists.

TVNL Comment: For Heaven's sake, take the baby's toy away from him before he does irreparable harm.



Ex-cop Jason Stockley found not guilty in black man's death

Jason Stockley not guiltyA St. Louis judge on Friday found former police officer Jason Stockley not guilty of first-degree murder in the 2011 shooting death of black motorist Anthony Lamar Smith.

"This Court, in conscience, cannot say that the State has proven every element of murder beyond a reasonable doubt, or that the State has proven beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant did not act in self-defense," St. Louis Circuit Judge Timothy Wilson wrote in his ruling.
St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kimberly Gardner said she was "disappointed" with the judge's decision.


Florida governor remains unsure about climate change after Hurricane Irma

Rick ScottGov. Rick Scott is again weathering criticism over global warming in the wake of Hurricane Irma, and won't say if he believes man-made climate change is real.

“Clearly our environment changes all the time, and whether that’s cycles we’re going through or whether that’s man-made, I wouldn’t be able to tell you which one it is,” Scott said after twice touring the storm-ravaged Florida Keys this week. “But I can tell you this: We ought to go solve problems. I know we have beach renourishment issues. I know we have flood-mitigation issues.”


How Man-made Earthquakes Could Cripple the U.S. Economy

Oklahoma fracking earthquakeWhen Hurricane Harvey made landfall in Texas, U.S. oil refining plummeted to record lows. Now, nearly three weeks later, six key refineries remain shut down and an additional 11 are either struggling to come back on line or operating at a significantly reduced rate.

That slowdown, coupled with predictions of decreased demand in the wake of Hurricane Irma and the devastating earthquake that struck Mexico last week, has shifted oil pressures in other places, too. And none may be quite as vulnerable as the tank farms in Cushing, Oklahoma.

Senators Try To Rein In Saudi Arabia’s Brutal U.S.-Backed Campaign In Yemen

Senate wants to rein in Saudi war in Yemen

An influential bipartisan duo of lawmakers is using this week’s consideration of a must-pass defense spending bill to try to help millions of people in Yemen, where a Saudi-led, U.S.-backed coalition has killed thousands of civilians in a conflict that has created desperate new health and starvation crises.

Sens. Todd Young (R-Ind.) and Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) are rallying support for an amendment to the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act that would condition U.S. military support for Saudi Arabia on American officials guaranteeing that Riyadh is following international humanitarian law, particularly on permitting the delivery of American-bought cranes to unload ships filled with food at a major Yemeni port.
