Sen. Brown sheds Franken cash; rival Mandel tweets on Moore

The Washingon Times + 59 other

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio Republican Senate candidate Josh Mandel (man-DEHL’) says Roy Moore should quit the Alabama Senate race if allegations of sexual misconduct involving teenage girls are true. The state treasurer after declining to comment for days tweeted Thursday: “I agree with Ivanka Trump. If these allegations are true, Roy Moore should step down.” Meanwhile, Sen. Sherrod Brown, the Democrat Mandel wants to unseat, says it will donate to charity $28,100 in contributions received since 2006 from Minnesota Democratic Sen. Al Franken and Franken’s PAC. The decision followed calls by Republicans to give back the money. Franken has apologized after a woman traveling with him on a 2006 USO tour accused him of forcibly kissing her then groping her for a photograph taken while she slept on a transport plane.

Palestinians threaten to suspend talks if U.S. closes PLO mission

NBC News + 6 other

WASHINGTON — The Palestinians threatened on Saturday to suspend all communication with the United States if the Trump administration follows through with plans to close their diplomatic office in Washington. The potential rupture in relations threatens to undermine President Donald Trump's bid for Mideast peace — a mission he has handed his son-in-law, Jared Kushner. Senior Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat said the U.S. decision was "very unfortunate and unacceptable," and accused Washington of bowing to pressure from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's government "at a time whe…

New York Post + 12 other

Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri is meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron in Paris after a tense stay in Saudi Arabia that unleashed fears of a new political crisis in Lebanon. Hariri arrived Saturday in France on Macron’s invitation, and pulled up to the Elysee Palace courtyard in a convoy before being greeted by the French leader on the steps. It’s Hariri’s first appearance outside Saudi Arabia since he made a strange resignation announcement Nov. 4 that some feared was Saudi-engineered. Hariri insisted that he was not a Saudi hostage. Lebanese state-run Nati…

Hatch. SEE ALSO: Republicans rally for a ‘comeback,’ push $1.4 trillion tax cut through House &#…

Voice of America, Argentina Intensifies Search for Navy Submarine With 44 Crew Members The Argentine navy said Saturday it has intensified its search for a submarine carrying 44 crew members that went missing Wednesday, but efforts are being hindered by strong winds and six-meter waves. The navy lost contact with the German-built diesel-electric submarine as it was returning from a routine mission from the naval base at Ushuaia, in Argentina's extreme south, to its base at Mar del Platamand. Despite the turbulent weather, base commander Admiral Gabriel Gonzalez said naval forces were increasing efforts above and below the water's surface and were preparing to comb the bottom…

The Washingon Times + 4 other

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Almost exactly one year ago, the Los Angeles Rams switched quarterbacks by making Case Keenum a backup again and jump-starting Jared Goff’s career. In the latest example of the NFL’s uncanny randomness, the former teammates Goff and Keenum will be pitted against each other on Sunday in Minnesota. Oh, and the Rams-Vikings matchup is widely considered the best game in the league this week. Not only are their teams thriving. So are they. “Just like everybody predicted: Case Keenum with the 7-2 Minnesota Vikings going up against the 7-2 Rams,” Keenum sai…

The Washingon Times + 12 other

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - The condition of a North Korean soldier severely wounded by gunfire while escaping to South Korea is gradually improving after two surgeries but it’s too early to tell whether he makes a recovery, hospital officials said Saturday While the soldier’s vital signs are stabilizing, he continues to remain unconscious and relying on a breathing machine. After consecutive surgeries to repair internal organ damage and other injuries, no further surgeries are planned as of yet, said Shin Mi-jeong, an official at the Ajou University Medical Center near Seoul.

CNBC + 13 other

Getty Images Elon Musk Tesla unveiled the Tesla Semi truck on Thursday. The truck can drive 500 miles on a single charge, which was higher than some analysts had expected. That may mean that, in terms of range, the vehicle could meet the needs of long haul truck drivers. Tesla CEO Elon Musk said the truck can beat a diesel truck in a straight line, up a 45 percent grade, and even without two of its four independent motors functioning. The truck can go from 0-60 in 5 seconds by itself, or in 20 seconds with an 80,000 pound load. And Musk said the truck will beat diesel t…

The Washingon Times + 4 other

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Jalen Hurts passed for 180 yards and three touchdowns in a little more than a quarter and No. 1 Alabama beat FCS team Mercer 56-0 on Saturday. The Crimson Tide (11-0, No. 1 CFP) raced to a 35-0 halftime lead in what amounted to a tuneup for the team’s biggest game. Now, Alabama heads to No. 6 Auburn with the winner of the Iron Bowl facing No. 7 Georgia in the Southeastern Conference championship game in Atlanta. The Bears (5-6) also lost to Auburn 24-10 early in the season, when the Tigers committed five turnovers. Hurts led Alabama to touchdowns on each of his f…

Trump administration updates demands as NAFTA talks continue

Los Angeles Times + 5 other

President Trump’s top trade official has issued new objectives for renegotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement — including some likely to irk Canada and Mexico, as well as the U.S. recording industry and other major business interests, as talks continue this weekend. There are few surprises in the 17-page document, given recent revelations and sharp words from NAFTA negotiators. But the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative, or USTR, made some notable additions and changes to the blueprint it initially outlined in July, a month before talks began, adding a fresh degree of uncerta…

CNBC + 5 other

Joshua Roberts | Reuters Donald Trump The Trump administration's reversal of a ban on the import of trophy hunted animals from Africa has driven a wedge between the White House and a powerful Republican committee chairman. On Friday, House Foreign Affairs Committee chair Rep. Ed Royce, R-Calif., slammed the decision by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, announced this week, to allow the importation of endangered African elephants killed for trophies in Zimbabwe and Zambia. "Elephants and other big game in Africa are blood currency for terrorist organizations, and th…

With Big Spill to Clean, Pipeline Owner Seeks Keystone XL Approval

The New York Times + 13 other

The images of South Dakota grassland blemished by 210,000 gallons of leaked Canadian crude oil could not have come at a worse time for the Keystone Pipeline’s operator, TransCanada, which on Monday will ask regulators in Nebraska to approve a different pipeline despite fierce opposition. This week’s leak was grimly familiar for Bob Banderet, a rancher on the Keystone route in North Dakota, about 20 miles north of the spill. In 2011, Mr. Banderet said he had spotted “a geyser of oil shooting straight up in the air” from a Keystone pumping station near his property. He found the response by Tran…

Judge declares mistrial in Menendez bribery case

NBC News + 10 other

NEWARK, N.J. — The bribery trial of New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez ended in a mistrial Thursday afternoon when jurors were again deadlocked in a case that threatened to end the Democratic lawmaker's political career. Jurors were unable to reach a unanimous verdict — the second time in four days — even though they reviewed evidence slowly and thoroughly of Menendez's relationship with a wealthy donor, defense attorney Abbe Lowell told U.S. District Judge William Walls. Lowell said jurors had a strong difference in viewpoints since deliberations began seven days ago. Senator Robert M…
