Trump: Bernie Sanders is 'history'

No.400518 ViewReplyOriginalReport
President Trump declared Monday that his possible 2020 opponent Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is "history" and former Vice President Joe Biden is "pulling ahead" in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination.

"Looks like Bernie Sanders is history. Sleepy Joe Biden is pulling ahead and think about it, I'm only here because of Sleepy Joe and the man who took him off the 1% trash heap, President O! China wants Sleepy Joe BADLY!" Trump tweeted.

Biden leads Sanders by nearly 20 percentage points in the Democratic primary race, according to the RealClearPolitics polling average.

Trump's message came hours before he is scheduled to headline a campaign rally in Pennsylvania, a state he won in 2016 but where Biden, who was born in Scranton, is making a strong push.

The president has repeatedly targeted the former vice president, whom his political team views as a serious contender even as he has downplayed the threat he poses in the 2020 race.

Secy of State Mike Pompeo: "Iran is the major destabilizing influence ... and we aim to fix that"

No.396696 ViewReplyOriginalReport
"Iran is the major destabilizing influence in the Middle East, and we aim to fix that," U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told CNBC on Saturday. "What we've seen from the Iranians is increased threats... it's real... and it appears to be current."

Earlier on Saturday, Iran's state Press TV headlined President Hassan Rouhani's claims that the country is "facing all-out-war," with its leadership rallying the population as tensions escalate. "Rouhani," reported Press TV, "said the current wave of pressure on Iran is even more difficult than the one experienced during the Iran-Iraq war period," and the country "needs unity and cohesiveness at the time of increased political and economic pressure, which he described as unprecedented in the history of the country since the Islamic revolution of 1979."

A day earlier, on Friday, Ayatollah Yousef Tabatabai Nejad was reported by Iran's ISNA news agency as taunting the dispatch of the U.S. carrier group. "Their billion-dollar fleet can be destroyed with one missile," he said during Friday prayers. "If they attempt any move, they will [see] dozens of missiles because at that time officials won’t be in charge to act cautiously, but instead things will be in the hands of our beloved leader."

The same day, the IRGC’s deputy head for political affairs Yadollah Javani was equally provocative, quoted by the Tasnim news agency as saying that "no talks will be held with the Americans and the Americans will not dare take military action against us," in response to President Trump's public call for talks and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's assurance of a swift and decisive response to any attack by Iran.

Pre-monsoon rainfall 22% lower than usual across India, says IMD

No.400710 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Pre-monsoon rainfall from March to May, which is a phenomenon vital to agriculture in several parts of the country, has recorded a deficiency of 22 percent, according to India Meteorological Department (IMD) data.

The IMD recorded 75.9 millimetres of rainfall from 1 March to 15 May against the normal rainfall of 96.8 millimetres, which comes to around minus 22 percent. From 1 March to 24 April, the IMD recorded a deficiency of 27 percent. The deficiency this week seems to have fallen over the last fortnight due to rains over east and northeast India.

Meanwhile, the southwest monsoon has advanced into the South Andaman Sea and conditions are favourable for it to reach the North Andaman Sea and the Andaman Islands in the next two to three days, the IMD said.

The Republic of China legalises gay marriage

No.399482 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Taiwan's parliament has become the first in Asia to legalise same-sex marriage following a vote on Friday.

In 2017, the island's constitutional court ruled that same-sex couples had the right to legally marry.

Parliament was given a two-year deadline and was required to pass the changes by 24 May.

Lawmakers debated three different bills to legalise same-sex unions and the government's bill, the most progressive of the three, was passed.

Thousands of gay rights supporters gathered in the rain outside the parliament building in the capital, Taipei, to await the landmark ruling.

There were shouts of joy and some tearful embraces as the result was announced.

However, conservative opponents were angered by the vote.

CNN guest: 'When a woman is pregnant, that is not a human being inside of her'

Debate on CNN's "Cuomo Prime Time" caught fire Monday night after a guest proclaimed that a fetus is not a human being.

When host Chris Cuomo gave Christine Quinn, the former speaker of the New York City Council, the last word, she said a fetus is effectively a body part. Her comments drew Cuomo, Quinn, and guest Rick Santorum into a heavy debate over Democratic Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam's comments about whether a newborn baby should be permitted to live and New York's new late-term abortion laws.

"When a woman gets pregnant, that is not a human being inside of her. It is part of her body, and this is about a woman having full agency and control of her body and making decisions about her body and what is part of her body with medical professionals," Quinn said. "Those are the facts and that is the law."

Santorum replied: "So the baby is their property and they can do whatever they want to it. They can maim the baby or torture the baby."

Santorum has a point. If you can kill it because it's not a human being, if you're blind why can't you pluck out its eyes in the womb? Why can't you take off the arms and legs?
