UK foreign minister Hunt says cannot envisage joining U.S.-led war with IranBritain does not expect the United States to request that the United Kingdom joins a war with Iran and London would be unlikely to agree to join such a conflict, Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt said on Tuesday.

FedEx sues US government over shipment restrictions Sources: Mets front office making in-game moves

FedEx sues US government over shipment restrictionsAmerican logistics giant FedEx sued the US government on Monday, saying Washington's restrictions on exports and imports due to growing trade disputes and sanctions created an "impossible burden" for delivery firms. The announcement of the lawsuit comes as Beijing and Washington face off in a trade war that has seen both sides exchange steep tariffs on hundreds of billions in exports. A statement by the delivery firm said the restrictions placed "an unreasonable burden on FedEx to police the millions of shipments that transit our network every day" or face heavy fines.


At least some of the Mets' pitching moves during games have been dictated by the front office, multiple sources confirmed to ESPN's Buster Olney.
Oregon Republican Party mocks armed militia threat, despite capitol building being closed due to armed militia threat Trail Blazers trade Turner to Hawks for Bazemore

Oregon Republican Party mocks armed militia threat, despite capitol building being closed due to armed militia threatOregon's Republican Party appears to have made light of right-wing threats made against politicians in the state stemming from opposition to planned climate change legislation.Oregon’s state capitol was forced to close at the weekend due to a “possible militia threat” against legislators.On Sunday the Oregon GOP Twitter account posted a photograph of peaceful protesters at the building.“Heavily armed militia lays siege to Oregon’s Capitol as Senate Democrats cower in fear,” the party tweeted, apparently mocking the threats of harm to politicians.Democrats in the coastal state are hoping to pass landmark climate legislation which would dramatically reduce fossil fuel emissions in Oregon by 2050.But the bill has stalled after Republican lawmakers walked out of the legislature in an attempt to deny the Democrats, the majority party, enough votes to proceed.Several fled the state to avoid the vote, leading Kate Brown, the governor, to order police officers to track them down.Under the proposed law, Oregon would put an overall limit on greenhouse gas emissions and auction off pollution “allowances”.Those opposed to the plan say it would exacerbate a growing divide between the liberal and urban parts of Oregon.The state Democrats have a majority of 18 to 12, but require a quorum of 20 to proceed.The bill has already passed the state House.A group of local Republicans were set to protest inside the Capitol on 23 June when lawmakers were present, and anti-government groups threatened to join, prompting the statehouse shutdown.> Heavily armed militia lays siege to Oregon’s Capitol as Senate Democrats cower in fear. orpol orleg capkillsjobs hb2020 Oregon11 orcot pic.twitter.com/XQHCEb3D59> > — Oregon GOP (@Oregon_GOP) > > June 23, 2019“The Oregon State Police has recommended that the Capitol be closed tomorrow due to a possible militia threat,” a spokesperson for Senate president Peter Courtney said on Friday.The governors’ office also confirmed the threats.Lawmakers in Oregon have previously grappled with the danger of militias.One of the groups set to join Saturday’s protest, the Oregon Three Percenters, joined an armed takeover of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in 2016.Dozens of people occupied the remote Oregon refuge for more than a month to protest federal control of Western lands.The standoff began to unravel when authorities fatally shot the group’s spokesperson and arrested key leaders as they headed to a community meeting.The Oregon Republican Party’s tweet attracted outrage online, with many condemning the tone of the post.“Oregon GOP endorses domestic terrorism. There’s your headline,” wrote Tyler Huffman, a Twitter user, in reply to the post.“I have to think this tweet will be deleted when the grown-ups see it,” said Ben M Schorr, in another reply.Democrats planned to return to the capitol on Monday.It is unclear if the state Republicans will continue their walkout in an attempt to derail the climate change legislation.If passed the proposed legislative package would be only the second of its kind in the US, after California passed a similar bill in 2013.


Evan Turner is heading to Atlanta. The Blazers have traded the forward to the Hawks in exchange for Kent Bazemore.

Why U.S. Engagement Policy Is The Correct One

Invariably, when one thinks of the efficacy of a nation’s military, the mind’s eye is drawn to the ability of that country to deliver a \"warhead onto the forehead\" of their enemies. Indeed, owing to the Pentagon’s slick packaging of the First Gulf War, modern conflict, in the American mind, became synonymous with high-tech toys, grainy videos of successful missile shots, and a quick resolution of hostilities.

Living Wages Are A Global Problem

The recent protests for an increased minimum wage are part of a larger global protest. The purpose is the same for low wage earners all over the world; increase wages to match the cost of living, and allow workers to form unions if desired and needed. The global protest has gained media attention all over the world, but critics claim that is the only accomplishment the movement will have.

Ukraine: Not What It Seems

After tense days of fighting this week, people in Ukraine are mourning the dead and celebrating the removal of President Victor Yanukovych from power. The final struggle that began on February 18, was the bloodiest endured by the protesters of Euromaidan. By February 22 the fighting was over.

In a Five to Four Decision, Voting Just Got Harder

In a five to four decision along party lines, the Supreme Court ruled on the controversial Shelby County v. Holder case. The ruling, believed by many sets the nation back decades in Civil Rights, while others see it as the fault of Congress dropping the ball on updating the act when it should have years ago.

Coup Or Civil War In Egypt

The day after new protests erupted in Egypt the military in a show of support presented an ultimatum to Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood-led government. Morsi was to step down from power and meet all of the demands of the Egyptian people, or face being removed by the military on Wednesday. As the ultimatum deadline draws closer in Egypt, Morsi refuses to leave, insisting that parliamentary elections are needed before he should be removed, and that he doesn't have permission from the United States to remove himself from power. Most recently he stated he will pay with his life to preserve the sanctity of the ballot box.
