Rear Adm. Collin Green's retirement follows the controversial court-martial of Special Warfare Operator Chief Eddie Gallagher. President Donald Trump, who supported Gallagher, disagreed with Green's pursuit of a peer review for Gallagher's case...
Trump’s latest approval bump appears to have been driven by higher ratings among Republicans (94 percent, up 6 percentage points from the previous poll) and independents (42 percent, up 5 points). It also probably reflects Americans’ confidence in the economy, which according to Gallup is higher than at any point in the past two decades. Additionally, Gallup’s pollsters noted that more Americans approved (53 percent) than disapproved (45 percent) of Trump’s controversial decision to launch the U.S. drone strike that killed Gen. Qassem Soleimani, a top Iranian military commander.
The poll was conducted Jan. 16-29, during the president’s Senate impeachment trial...
Speaking to the BBC’s Andrew Marr, Mr Varadkar told viewers: “Let’s not repeat some of the errors that we’ve made in the past two and a half years. Let’s not set such rigid red lines that it makes it hard to come to an agreement, and let’s tone down the kind of nationalistic rhetoric.”...
The finding was confirmed by China's Health Commission, which said on Monday that the coronavirus can survive for five days maximum on smooth surfaces under suitable circumstances. That would mean that mobile phone screens, computer keyboards, faucets and other household objects may indirectly transmit the virus, experts said... Over the weekend, some experts warned that the novel coronavirus could be transmitted through the digestive system as they found 2019-nCoV nucleic acids in patients' stool and rectal swabs, and health authorities had suggested the central air conditioning system be discontinued if coronavirus patients are found.

The action is in response to a complaint filed by the district attorneys of Alameda and Santa Clara counties that alleges Kim Thien Le worked as a pharmacist in multiple Walgreens locations in the Bay Area for more than 10 years though she was not licensed by the Board of Pharmacy. While working as a pharmacist, Le participated in filling more than 745,000 prescriptions, including more than 100,000 for controlled substances...
Caucusgoers gathered Monday at nearly 1,700 sites across Iowa to tally support for their preferred candidates — only for the night to be thrown into disarray when what the Iowa Democratic Party called "inconsistencies" delayed the reporting of results... Results in the Iowa caucuses will be released later Tuesday, Troy Price, chair of the Iowa Democratic Party, said... he said that the party is manually verifying precinct reports, which is taking longer than expected. He reiterated that the issue is a reporting one, not a hack, and did not give timeline for when to expect tallies.
According to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the shipment of dried fins were found in 18 boxes at the Miami Port of Entry on January 24. Officials believe the shipment originated in South America and was likely headed to Asia, where shark fins are sought after for use in soup and traditional medicine...
[Iowa’s Republican and Democratic Parties] and their app and web development vendors partnered last fall with Harvard’s Defending Digital Democracy Project to develop strategies and systems to protect results and deal with any misinformation that's reported on caucus night. They worked with campaign experts Robby Mook and Matt Rhodes — as well as experts in cybersecurity, national security, technology and election administration — and simulated the different ways that things could go wrong on caucus night. Mook, 2016 campaign manager for Hillary Clinton, and Rhodes, Mitt Romney's 2012 campaign manager, helped develop a public-service video to alert campaigns to the warning signs of hacking and misinformation.
If much of industrial China remains on lockdown for the next few weeks, a very real possibility, Western retailers, auto companies and manufacturers that depend on Chinese imports will start to run out of the goods they depend on. In order to meet deadlines for summer goods, retail experts say that Chinese factories would need to start ramping up production by March 15. If Chinese factories were instead to remain idle through May 1, it would likely cripple retailers' crucial back-to-school and fall seasons.
Mike Bloomberg tells me he'd support Bernie Sanders over Donald Trump if those were his two options, but that people should understand Sanders at this moment is "so far to the left it's not practical" and that "what he wants to do would never get through Congress"... "I don't agree with him on virtually anything," Bloomberg said of Sanders in an interview Monday at a campaign stop in Compton, Calif. "But I have committed to support the Democratic candidate because I find Trump so unsuited for the job."
Judiciary spokesman Gholamhossein Esmaili identified the purported spy as Amir Rahimpour and said he would be executed soon. Esmaili did not elaborate on what Rahimpour was accused of doing, nor on his age or background. State media did not immediately name Rahimpour’s lawyer. However, a report by the state-run IRNA news agency alleged that Rahimpour received money from the CIA to share details of Iran’s nuclear program.
President Trump easily defeated his primary rivals in Monday’s Iowa Republican caucuses, in the first indication that those attempting to take on the president inside his own party stand a slim chance of making headway against the incumbent. Iowa results showed the president winning with roughly 97 percent of the vote over former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld and former Illinois congressman Joe Walsh. The primary challengers walked away with about 1 percent each.
According to data provided by a major Fox News resource, citing Pentagon sources, numerous S-400 RF systems have appeared in Cuba, so the entire sky over the United States will continue to be controlled. Despite the fact that experts believe that the US military will face big troubles due to the installed Russian weapons right at the country’s borders, the Western partners themselves have a different opinion...
