U.S. no longer considers Hong Kong autonomous from China, Pompeo announces

The U.S. State Department has determined Hong Kong no longer holds autonomy under Chinese rule, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced Wednesday. "No reasonable person can assert today that Hong Kong maintains a high degree of autonomy from China, given facts on the ground," Pompeo said in a Wednesday statement. Pompeo informed Congress of the department's decision on Tuesday, and there's a strong chance the move will change Hong Kong's trade relationship with the U.S., CNBC reports. "While the United States once hoped that free and prosperous Hong Kong would provide a model for authoritarian China, it is now clear that China is modeling Hong Kong after itself," Pompeo said. America's economic and trade relationship with Hong Kong is separate of that with China, largely exempting Hong Kong from the tariff war between the two nations. But with the U.S. now considering Hong Kong to be more closely tied with the mainland, the region will now likely be subject to America's heavy trade restrictions. The announcement…

NEW DELHI, May 26: Union Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday held a long security review meeting with Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) General Bipin Rawat and the three Services Chiefs amid the border standoff with China in Ladakh.The meeting was the latest in a series of such consultations held in the last two weeks as India weighs its options to respond to the latest provocation by China at the border.Singh was briefed by Army Chief General MM Naravane about the situation at the Line of Actual Control (LAC), the de-facto border between the two countries, two days ago after his return from Leh to take stock of the matter.Six rounds of talks between Indian and Chinese troops since the first border skirmish on May 5 have failed to de-escalate tensions as the two sides have maintained aggressive posturing in the disputed border areas.Sources say China has put forward the condition that India stop building infrastructure even on its own side of the LAC, a condition that will remain unacceptable to New Delhi.

Why the Cummings crisis is now all about how Johnson governs

Danny Kruger, the young Tory MP who is an old friend of Dominic Cummings and his spouse, got it right last night. The “affaire Cummings” - as the French would put it - is no longer about the most powerful aide to the prime minister and the minutiae of how he interpreted coronavirus quarantine rules differently from most of the country. Kruger argued that attacks on Cummings are attacks on Boris Johnson, because the PM has so conspicuously become Cummings’s human shield. So as another Tory MP told me - a grandee no less - this is now all about the PM himself and how he governs. It is about why Boris Johnson rates Cummings so highly, and why he needs him at the centre of his government.

Trump's press secretary says there are 'real concerns' with mail-in voting. She's voted by mail 11 times.

Do as I say, not as I have done for the last decade. White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany has voted by mail 11 times in the past 10 years, sending in a ballot for every Florida election she's participated in since 2010, The Tampa Bay Times reports. She reportedly last voted by mail in Florida's primary just two months ago, shortly before she told reporters there is supposed "bipartisan consensus on the fact that mass mail-in voting can lead to fraud." McEnany's voting history is similar to that of her boss, President Trump, who has routinely voted by mail while making a stink over others who do the same. "The president is, after all, the president, which means he's here in Washington. He's unable to cast his vote down in Florida, his state of residence," McEnany said last week about the president's voting decisions. McEnany's defense of Trump came after he incorrectly asserted that Michigan illegally distributed millions of absentee ballot applications to its residents and threatened to withhold funding…

BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 A.M.) – According to a new report, there are diplomatic efforts made in secret by Tehran to change its policies towards Iraq after the assassination of the Iranian General Qassem Soleimani during a U.S. raid near Baghdad International Airport. Citing unnamed sources, Reuters reported that the goal of the new methods pursued by Iran is to break the political deadlock in Baghdad, and to accelerate the departure of nearly 5,000 US soldiers from Iraq, according to three senior Iranian officials involved in the process. “Sometimes you should take a step back, monitor and plan based on the facts on the ground,” said a senior Iranian official, who asked not to be named. He added: “We want the Americans to leave the region. If there is chaos in Iraq … the Americans will use it as an excuse to extend their stay.” According to the report, since the killing of Soleimani, Iranian officials had held “serious talks” with Iraqi President Barham Saleh for the first time in years to build confidence and…

The Trump-Russia collusion hoax was exposed even further under Grenell, who served as Ambassador to Germany prior to his brief stint as acting DNI. John Ratcliffe has now taken his spot full-term and Grenell is now off to work for the Trump campaign, says Politico. Except that he’s not. I mean it’s been denied by Grenell and Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale. It isn’t happening and both men slapped down the article as another piece of fake news (via Fox News):

Biden suggests many COVID-19 deaths were avoidable but for Trump's 'lack of attention and ego'

Former Vice President Joe Biden said on Tuesday that President Trump is "supposed to lead by example" when it comes to wearing a mask and social distancing during the coronavirus pandemic, but has failed at that and also keeping the death toll down. The U.S. is close to reaching the grim milestone of 100,000 confirmed coronavirus deaths. In an interview with CNN's Dana Bash, Biden said it is as important as ever to stay safe by social distancing and wearing a face covering, as the COVID-19 threat is "not over." Biden then appeared to reference a recent report by Columbia University researchers who found that enacting federal social distancing measures nationwide just one week earlier in March would have prevented about 36,000 coronavirus deaths, with thousands more deaths averted under earlier closures. The first imported case of COVID-19 in the U.S. was reported on Jan. 20, with community transmission following a few weeks later. "One hundred thousand deaths and at least 35,000 to 50,000 were avoidable, but…

Pakistan Condemns commencement of construction of Mandir at Babri Masjid site

Islamabad, Pakistan: While the world is grappling with the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic, the RSS-BJP combine in India is busy unabashedly advancing the “Hindutva” agenda. The commencement of construction of a Mandir at the site of the historic Babri Masjid in Ayodhya on 26 May 2020 is another step in this direction and the Government and people of Pakistan condemn it in the strongest terms. In a press statement issued on Wednesday evening, Pakistan Foreign Office said that the commencement of the Mandir’s construction is a sequel to the controversial decision given by the Indian Supreme Court on 9 November 2019, which completely failed to uphold the demands of justice. The Supreme Court’s verdict shredded the veneer of so-called ‘secularism’ of India by making clear that the minorities are not safe in India and that they have to fear for their lives, beliefs and places of worship. The developments relating to the Babri Masjid, the discriminatory Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), initiation of the National Register…

White House press secretary says 'it's Joe Scarborough that has to answer' for Trump's false murder allegations

When your criticism-sensitive boss falsely accuses a prominent critic of murder, then doubles down after the dead woman's husband publicly pleads for him to stop spreading these "horrifying lies" and "filth," you may not have great options when asked to respond. And White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany chose some bad responses at Tuesday's press briefing. There is no "cold case" involving the 2001 death of Lori Klausutis, a constituent services staffer in a Florida congressional office of MSNBC host Joe Scarborough, then a Republican congressman. The authorities never had any doubt her death was an accident. "The President of the United States has taken something that does not belong him — the memory of my dead wife — and perverted it for perceived political gain," her widower, Timothy Klausutis, wrote in an open letter to Twitter on Tuesday. "My wife deserves better." Most of the Scarborough-related questions McEnany fielded Tuesday were some variation on why Trump continues to falsely accuse him of…

It only took two hours for Trump's administration to contradict his threat to shut down Twitter

President Trump took to his favorite social media platform to attack social media platforms on Wednesday morning, and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo certainly didn't do anything to help his boss' case. Shortly after Trump claimed on Twitter he would "strongly regulate" or "close down" social media platforms that are allegedly silencing "conservative voices," Pompeo sent out a tweet saying the U.S. "will not tolerate" government-imposed censorship or shutdowns. Pompeo's tweet isn't in response to Trump, exactly — it references the Freedom Online Coalition, a partnership of 31 governments seeking to improve Internet freedom. The group has been vocal about combating any attempts to limit freedom of expression or increase Internet surveillance as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. Trump's social media threats came after Twitter labeled two of his tweets as misleading on Tuesday, the first time that distinction was given to the president on the platform. Seeing as Pompeo specifically boosted the FOC's statement…

Jerry Falwell Jr. says he'll only wear a mask featuring Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam's blackface yearbook photo

Jerry Falwell Jr. is conceding to Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam's (D) coronavirus-fighting demands with a mask that's almost certain to backfire. Northam's recent order mandating everyone in the state wear a mask when they're in public has seemingly made Falwell pretty mad about preserving public health. So on Wednesday, the Liberty University president and influential conservative figure, revealed he'd ordered a mask printed with the blackface photo found on Northam's college yearbook page — something anyone who sees Falwell wearing the mask will likely not know. It's been more than a year since it was revealed Northam's 1984 yearbook page featured a photo of a person in blackface standing beside a person in KKK robes. While Northam said he had worn blackface before, he maintained that he wasn't either of the men in the photo, and a three-month investigation couldn't prove it was or wasn't him. That photo is on Falwell's new mask, though without any context or explanation, those unfamiliar with Northam's scandal…

George Floyd, Killed By Minneapolis Police, Was Houston Rapper & DJ Screw Collaborator

Two days ago, an onlooker captured cell-phone video of Minneapolis police forcefully restraining an unarmed black man, 46-year-old George Floyd, at a bus stop. One white officer knelt on top of Floyd, pressing his knee against Floyd's neck for seven minutes. Floyd said that he couldn't breathe, and then his body went limp. Onlookers pleaded for the officer to get off of him. Later, at a hospital, Floyd was pronounced dead. Since then, four police officers have been fired, and police have used tear gas, smoke bombs, flash grenades, and rubber bullets against protesters. As it turns out, Floyd was once a part of one of America's most vital rap scenes. The Houston Chronicle reports that Floyd was born in North Carolina, but he grew up in Houston and became star high-school athlete, getting into Florida State University on a basketball scholarship. Floyd didn't finish college; instead, he returned to Houston and started making music under the name Big Floyd. In the '90s, Floyd rapped on
