Major U.S. airline CEOs warn 5G could ground some planes, wreak havoc

Major 5G ctastrophe for aviation warnerdThe chief executives of major U.S. passenger and cargo carriers on Monday warned of an impending "catastrophic" aviation crisis in less than 36 hours, when AT&T (T.N) and Verizon (VZ.N) are set to deploy new 5G service.

The airlines warned the new C-Band 5G service set to begin on Wednesday could render a significant number of widebody aircraft unusable, "could potentially strand tens of thousands of Americans overseas" and cause "chaos" for U.S. flights.

"Unless our major hubs are cleared to fly, the vast majority of the traveling and shipping public will essentially be grounded," wrote the chief executives of American Airlines (AAL.O), Delta Air Lines (DAL.N), United Airlines , Southwest Airlines (LUV.N) and others in a letter first reported by Reuters.



Liz Cheney’s Wyoming Nemesis Is an Oath Keeper Who Was at Capitol Rally

Cheney nemisis an oath Keeper

When the Department of Justice indicted members of the Oath Keepers last week for their role in the Jan. 6 insurrection, one Republican official might have taken more notice of the arrests than others.

Frank Eathorne, who was revealed in a leak last year to be one of 191 Wyoming-based members of the far-right militia group, was in Washington for protests on Jan. 6. But Eathorne is no rank-and-file fringe crank. He is the sitting chairman of the Wyoming Republican Party.

That role has made him one of the more influential Republican officials in the country. Eathorne is presiding over what is perhaps the GOP’s highest-profile primary battle of the 2022 election: the MAGA-fueled campaign to unseat Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) for her unrelenting criticism of former President Donald Trump’s lies about the 2020 election.


Rabbi threw chair at Texas synagogue gunman before escaping; FBI casts standoff as terrorism

Rabbi Charlie Citron-WalkerA rabbi who endured a tense, 10-hour standoff at a Texas synagogue said Monday that he and the other hostages fled after he threw a chair at the assailant.

Rabbi Charlie Cytron-Walker spoke to "CBS Mornings" hours after the FBI released a statement calling the standoff a "terrorism-related matter in which the Jewish community was targeted."

Cytron-Walker said that in the last hour of Saturday's standoff, it appeared the assailant, British national Malik Faisal Akram, "wasn't getting what he wanted."

"It didn't look good, it didn't sound good," Cytron-Walker said. "We were terrified."

N. Korea fires 2 more missilesNorth Korea fired two suspected short-range ballistic missiles (SRBM) on Monday from an airport in its capital city of Pyongyang, South Korea's military reported, the fourth test this month to demonstrate its expanding missile arsenal.

Japan also reported the launch, with chief cabinet secretary Hirokazu Matsuno condemning it as a threat to peace and security while China urged all sides to preserve for stability.

"We call on relevant sides to keep in mind the overall peace and stability on the peninsula," Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian told a daily briefing in Beijing when asked about the suspected launch.


Celebrated Tuskegee Airman Charles McGee dies at 102

Tuskegee airman dies at 102

Charles McGee, a Tuskegee Airman who flew 409 fighter combat missions over three wars, has died. He was 102.

Vice President Kamala Harris and Secretary of Defense Lloyd J. Austin III on Sunday announced his death on Twitter, both of them calling McGee an American hero.

"While I am saddened by his loss, I'm also incredibly grateful for his sacrifice, his legacy, and his character. Rest in peace, General," wrote Austin, who did not specify where McGee died.

The Tuskegee Airmen is the nickname of the first African American unit to fly combat airplanes in World War II.


Robert Reich: Corporate sedition is more damaging to America than the Capitol attack

Robert ReichCapitalism and democracy are compatible only if democracy is in the driver’s seat.

That’s why I took some comfort just after the attack on the Capitol when many big corporations solemnly pledged they’d no longer finance the campaigns of the 147 lawmakers who voted to overturn election results.

Well, those days are over. Turns out they were over the moment the public stopped paying attention.

A report published last week by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington shows that over the past year, 717 companies and industry groups have donated more than $18m to 143 of those seditious lawmakers. Businesses that pledged to stop or pause their donations have given nearly $2.4m directly to their campaigns or political action committees (Pacs).


Benjamin Netanyahu ‘near to plea bargain’ in corruption trial

Netanyahu to plea bargain

The former Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu is reportedly close to reaching a plea bargain in his corruption trial, a development that could mean an unexpectedly swift end to his turbulent political career and once again upend Israeli politics.

Israeli media were dominated on Sunday by the news that Netanyahu, the chair of the Likud party and leader of the opposition since being ousted last year from a 12-year-stint in government, has reached advanced talks with the state attorney’s office.

In the reported agreement, Netanyahu will admit to two counts of breach of trust, resulting in a suspended prison sentence and a few months of prison time that will be converted to community service.


Florida Gay Rights Activist Found Dead In Landfill, Prompting Homicide Probe

Florida Gay Rights Activist Found Dead

A gay rights activist whose participation in a 2014 legal fight led to a landmark same-sex marriage victory in Florida has been found dead. His death has been ruled a homicide, police said.

Jorge Diaz-Johnston, 54, had not been seen since Jan. 3 when his body was found at a Jackson County landfill on Jan. 8, roughly 90 miles west of where he was last seen in Tallahassee, authorities said.

The trash had initially been collected from another nearby landfill, which is accessible to the public, according to the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office, which said an autopsy will determine a cause of death.

Diaz-Johnston ― whose brother is Manny Diaz, the chair of the Florida Democratic Party and the former mayor of Miami ― had been living in Tallahassee at the time of his disappearance.


2 Teens Arrested In UK In Connection With Hostage Taking At Texas Synagogue

Congregation Beth El in TexasPolice in England said Sunday they had arrested two teenagers in their investigation into an armed British national holding four people hostage during a 10-hour standoff at a Texas synagogue.

The Greater Manchester Police did not name the suspects or whether they faced any charges. They described them as teenagers who were in custody for questioning.

A rabbi who was among four people held hostage at a Texas synagogue said Sunday that their armed captor grew “increasingly belligerent and threatening” toward the end of the 10-hour standoff, which ended with an FBI SWAT team rushing into the building and the captor’s death.
