Protests in Washington, D.C., have remained peaceful for the past couple of weeks, and Monday night marked the first significant clashes between protesters and police since authorities used pepper spray to clear demonstrators from Lafayette Square earlier this month.
Specifically, Mr. Cuomo said that bar patrons in Manhattan and the Hamptons on Long Island had been flouting the rules, and warned that if local officials did not crack down on such behavior the state could be forced to suspend re-opening plans.
“There is a very real possibility that we would roll back the reopening in those areas,” he said, adding that if people didn’t abide social distancing rules, including wearing masks, a second wave of infections was almost inevitable. “It will come. And once it comes, it’s too late.”
Internet encyclopedia giant Wikipedia is censoring independent news websites by adding them to an official blacklist of taboo “deprecated” media outlets.
The Grayzone is among the news websites targeted by the censorship campaign. Others include leftist and anti-imperialist outlets like MintPress News and the Latin American news broadcaster Telesur, along with several prominent right-wing political sites, including the Daily Caller.
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) have deployed troops in Washington, D.C., officials announced Monday, as President Trump mobilized the military in the capital city to address the protests over George Floyd’s death.
CBP Acting Commissioner Mark Morgan posted on Twitter that the law enforcement’s personnel has been sent to the National Capital Region “to assist law enforcement partners.”
President Trump on Monday threatened to deploy federal troops if state and city leaders don’t act to quell acts of violence and looting amid the protests over the killing of George Floyd. Moments earlier, just outside the White House, federal authorities used rubber bullets, flash bangs and gas to clear peaceful protesters from the area. Then Trump, who walked across Lafayette Square to St. John’s Church, where a fire was set Sunday evening, held up a Bible and nodded to media cameras and posed for photos.
Reducing payroll taxes is an idea championed by conservatives with connections to the president. They argue that it could be a way to encourage people to work …

His comments came two days after the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Robert Redfield, agreed when questioned at a House hearing that it was „absolutely wrong and inappropriate“ to use such labels.
Redfield said the virus had now expanded beyond China to other parts of the world, particularly Iran, South Korea, Italy and „now all of Europe.“

Without any proof, The New York Times and Washington Post run “Russia helping Sanders” stories, and Sanders responds by bashing Russia, writes Joe Lauria.
„Wir unterstützen den Vorschlag des Europäischen Auswärtigen Dienstes, eine Ausweitung der Luftraumüberwachung vorzunehmen“, sagte Schallenberg der „Welt“. Das könne allerdings nur ein erster Schritt sein. „Vorbehaltlich der Zustimmung der Libyer könnten EU-Grenzbeamte die Durchsetzung des Waffenembargos vor Ort unterstützen. Österreich wäre bereit, sich dabei zu beteiligen“, zitierte das Blatt den Minister.
Speaking to BBC Radio 4’s Today Programme, Laura Kuenssberg claimed Michael Gove could be given the role to look after the last leg of the Brexit trade negotiations in Boris Johnson’s cabinet reshuffle today.
A Democratic super PAC is expected to release a new ad campaign Wednesday that targets Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and the heart attack that he suffered late last year.
The ad from Democratic Majority for Israel features six Iowa voters and argues Sanders would be unable to beat President Trump in November, The New York Times reported.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is leading a congressional delegation to Israel this week amid an intraparty debate over conditioning military aid to the close US ally and Democratic efforts to limit President Donald Trump’s ability to attack Iran.
“And no matter what our party — or wherever we are within our party — the fact that we have the shared values with Israel and that is one reason for our joy in the creation of Israel as a historical miracle, the greatest accomplishment of the [20th] century,” Pelosi said at a working lunch with Knesset members.
A group of pro-Israel Democrats who accompanied Pelosi on the trip — including House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel of New York and Middle East panel Chairman Ted Deutch of Florida — also expressed hope that Trump’s proposal could lead to direct negotiations between the Israelis and Palestinians to ultimately result in a two-state solution.
Der rechtskonservative Ministerpräsident Benjamin Netanjahu hatte bereits vor der vergangenen Wahl im September erklärt, im Falle eines Wahlsieges das Jordantal annektieren zu wollen. Im Dezember sprach er davon, „eine US-Anerkennung unserer Souveränität im Jordantal und allen Siedlungen in Judäa und Samaria (Westjordanland) (zu) erzielen“.
Up until recently, Kahol Lavan leader opposed publication of peace plan during campaign, calling it ‚outright intervention‘ in Israeli election
There was no immediate Israeli comment. Israel has carried out dozens of airstrikes on Syria over the past years but it rarely comments on what it targets.
Israel is widely believed to have been behind airstrikes mainly targeting Iranian and Hezbollah forces in Syria that have joined the country’s war fighting alongside the government.
The State Department warned that the U.S. could shut down Iraq’s access to the country’s central bank account held at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, a move that could jolt Iraq’s already shaky economy, the officials said.
Following the brief detention of Her Majesty’s Ambassador to Iran Rob Macaire, Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said:
The arrest of our Ambassador in Tehran without grounds or explanation is a flagrant violation of international law. The Iranian government is at a cross-roads moment. It can continue its march towards pariah status with all the political and economic isolation that entails, or take steps to deescalate tensions and engage in a diplomatic path forwards.“
Die US-Luftfahrtbehörde FAA sperrte nach den Angriffen für US-Fluggesellschaften vorübergehend den Luftraum über dem Irak, dem Iran, dem Persischen Golf und dem Golf von Oman.
Contrast this, Greenblatt wrote, to Sanders, who said that “right now, Israel is under the leadership of Netanyahu… who in my view, is a racist.”
„This slur on the leader of Israel echoes the anti-Semitic claims of Israel’s enemies, who falsely argue that Zionism itself – the movement supporting a Jewish homeland where Judaism was born more than 3,000 years ago – is a racist philosophy,“ Greenblatt charged.
Saagar Enjeti argues about the fakeness behind Left Twitter’s outrage over Senator Sanders endorsing Cenk Uygur.
Mr. Sanders had called Mr. Uygur, the founder and co-host of the online talk show “The Young Turks,” “a voice we desperately need in Congress” in a statement on Thursday.
“I know he will serve ordinary people, not powerful special interests,” Mr. Sanders said then.
But by Friday afternoon, he had reconsidered.
“Our movement is bigger than any one person,” he said. “I hear my grass roots supporters who were frustrated and understand their concerns. Cenk today said he is rejecting all endorsements for his campaign, and I retract my endorsement.”
The former Labor MK and protest leader says her yet-to-be-named party will “sit in any government that respects its values, include that of Likud,” she says, though she rejects teaming up with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
“I am calling for open primaries for the list, which would bring new energy to the camp and enable setting the list according to the will of the public and not a political deal among political hacks. I will continue to fight for our constituents who believed in our path to be represented in the Knesset.”
But just in case, Shaffir hired campaign staff in order to run independently as head of the Green Party, which would also include former Zionist Union MK Yael Cohen-Paran.
Pyongyang has promised to deliver a “Christmas gift” if there is no progress on easing up on sanctions. But any movement on that front seems nearly impossible at this stage considering talks with Washington have stalled and the North Korean regime is once again insulting Trump regularly. As tensions with North Korea increase, and especially if there is a test around the holidays, it would mark a huge blow to one of President Donald Trump’s major foreign policy initiatives. And it would happen right as he gears up for the presidential campaign.
The father of one of the London Bridge terror attack victims has accused Boris Johnson of using his son’s death as „an opportunity to score some points in the election“.
A victory for Jeremy Corbyn on Thursday would see the UK led by a „Hamas-backing, IRA-supporting, anti-Semitism condoning appeaser of the Kremlin,“ Boris Johnson has declared.
In his remarks made at a conference in Jerusalem, Gantz said that Netanyahu turned the annexation of the West Bank — a highly contentious issue — into a talking point, but did little for the people living there.
Blue and White, he said, would be just the opposite – the plans for annexing the Jordan Valley, set to be Israel’s ‚eastern wall‘, are ready, and standing at the helm the party will implement them.
In the statement, the ambassador, Kim Song, said the United States‘ pursuit of „sustained and substantial dialogue“ was a „time-saving trick“ to benefit a „domestic political agenda.“
„We do not need to have lengthy talks with the US now and the denuclearization is already gone out of the negotiation table,“ he said.
The U.N. bans North Korea from launching satellites because it is considered a forbidden test of long-range missile technology.
After repeated failures, North Korea successfully put a satellite into orbit for the first time in 2012 in a launch from the same site. North Korea had another successful satellite launch in 2016.
Scharfe Kritik übte die chinesische Regierung bereits an dem Entwurf für das Gesetz zu Menschenrechten und Demokratie in Hongkong. Fakten und Wahrheiten würden vernachlässigt, erklärte Außenamtssprecher Geng Shuang. Es handle sich um eine Einmischung in die Angelegenheiten Chinas und Hongkongs und einen ernsthaften Verstoß gegen das Völkerrecht.
“I want to live in a place where I can live freely,” Qasim told Rudaw, surrounded by tens of fellow ISIS detainees in a windowless room. “I want to go to any country that has more freedom like the European countries, for example, Germany or Sweden.”
The test launch was carried out to check the readiness and flight performance of the missile, the ministry said in a statement.

Barring Congresswoman would greatly damage Israel’s relations with Democratic party, Israeli diplomats warn ■ Trump tweets allowing their visit is ‚great show of weakness‘
The spokesman did not specify when the decision was made or who made the final decision, but the announcement comes shortly after US President Donald Trump said Israel would be showing „great weakness“ by allowing them to enter the country.
Mr Farage added: „I thought, ‚Dear, oh dear, oh dear‘. You realise, 48 hours on, it was genius because what’s happened is the Democrats gather round the Squad, which allows him to say, ‚Oh look, the Squad are the centre of the Democratic Party‘.
„He’s remarkably good at what he does.

Wenn die anderen Unterzeichnerstaaten das Abkommen nicht vollständig umsetzten, dann werde der Iran es auf die gleiche Weise nur unvollständig umsetzen. Details nannte Sarif nicht.
UNO-Resolutionen verbieten Nordkorea – das mehrfach Atomwaffen getestet hat – die Starts von ballistischen Raketen kurzer, mittlerer und langer Reichweite.
Es wird erwartet, dass Nordkorea vor Gesprächen mit den USA sein Säbelrasseln fortsetzen wird. Weitere Raketentests sind daher nicht ausgeschlossen.
Mr Davies was fined £1,500 and ordered to pay £2,500 towards legal costs, whilst also forced to carry out 50 hours of community service.
He was again chosen by the Tories to fight for the crucial Parliamentary seat after more than 10,000 constituents signed a petition to remove him.
Erst vor sechs Tagen hatte Nordkorea zwei ballistische Raketen des Typs KN-23 mit einer geschätzten Reichweite von 600 Kilometern ins Ostmeer gefeuert. Bei den Projektilen habe es sich um modifizierte russische Iskander-Raketen gehandelt.
Iran has reportedly test fired a ballistic missile amid escalating tensions with the US and UK in the Gulf.
The Shahab-3 missile travelled 1,000km, but did not pose a threat to shipping or US bases, according to a Pentagon official.
It seized documents and questioned the crew. The ten сrew members — all Russians — on the small oil-products carrier were later released, though the ship will remain, the Russian embassy in Kiev said, according to RIA Novosti. Ukrainian officials couldn’t immediately be reached to comment on that.
Nor, presumably, would they want the world to test their claim that they can shut off the Strait of Hormuz—when they make this threat, they are quick to add that they “don’t want to.” Closing the waterway through which a quarter of the world’s oil trade flows would not only harm the global economy and stick it to regional adversaries like Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, it would also deeply inconvenience Iran’s few friends and sympathizers.
It was entering the strait from the southern route, which is an exit path, increasing the risk of an accident.
Moreover, Stena Impero had not heeded any of the warnings from the Iranian Ports and Maritime Organization.
The UK oil tanker was also polluting the Persian Gulf water heavily by dumping crude oil residue.
„Trump’s trip to Panmunjom didn’t have its desired effect,“ Vipin Narang, an associate professor of political science at MIT told CNN. „There’s no date for working level talks. Instead, they’re still testing — Kim is touring potentially nuclear capable submarines and firing“ missiles.
Die zweite von den heute Morgen abgeschossenen nordkoreanischen Kurzstreckenraketen soll etwa 690 Kilometer weit geflogen sein.
Südkoreas Vereinigter Generalstab (JCS) teilte mit, dass Nordkorea in der Umgebung von Wonsan einen nicht näher identifizierten Flugkörper um 5.34 Uhr und einen weiteren um 5.57 Uhr in Richtung Ostmeer abgefeuert habe. Diese seien etwa 430 Kilometer weit geflogen.

Die strategischen Bomber des Typs Tu-95MS und zwei chinesische strategische Bomber des Typs H6-K seien eine geplante Route über neutralem Gewässer im Ostmeer und Ostchinesischen Meer abgeflogen, hieß es in einer Presseerklärung des Ministeriums.
Moscow and Beijing have been steadily ramping up what he described as a „quasi-alliance,“ said Artyom Lukin, an international relations scholar at Far Eastern Federal University in Vladivostok. He described the incident as one designed to showcase their shared power, „sending a message to Tokyo, Seoul and Washington.“
„Frankly speaking, I was surprised when I read this news,“ Lukin said. „I didn’t expect this action would be so bold and provocative.“
Das iranische Fernsehen veröffentlichte Aufnahmen, die CIA-Agenten zeigen sollen, die mit den mutmaßlichen Spionen in Kontakt waren. So soll ein Iraner in den Vereinigten Arabischen Emiraten von der CIA rekrutiert worden sein. Zunächst äußerten sich weder die CIA noch die US-Regierung zu der Darstellung.
„Defendants serving their sentences in prison mentioning tempting promises of CIA officers including emigration to USA, a proper job in America, and money,“ the Intelligence Ministry document said. It added that the spy mission was to collect classified information „from substantial centers as well as intelligence/technical operations.“
The Ministry said some of the 17 will be executed.
Iran-backed terrorist cells could be deployed to launch attacks in the UK if the crisis between London and Tehran deepens, intelligence sources have warned.
A Crowd in North Carolina chanted „Send her back!“ as Trump spent 3 minutes criticizing Rep. Ilhan Omar. He went on to further attacks on the rest of „The Squad.“
Ob die geplanten Razzien für die Regierung tatsächlich zu einem Erfolg werden, bezweifeln nun viele. Die Operation habe sich innerhalb den Communities herumgesprochen, außerdem kritisieren Beamte innerhalb des ICE, dass durch die Razzien Eltern und Kinder (die bisweilen amerikanische Staatsbürger sind) getrennt werden können. Das war denn offenbar auch der Hauptgrund, warum die Operation zu einem früheren Zeitpunkt nicht stattgefunden hat.
The ICE agents will target at least 2,000 immigrants whose deportations have already been ordered, a New York Times report said, citing one former and two current Department of Homeland Security officials.
Asked for comment, an ICE spokesman would not offer specific details, citing „law-enforcement sensitivities and the safety and security of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement personnel.“
As a natural-born American like Carlson, I hope no one groups us together and makes assumptions about me based on his views. I ask not to be judged for his words.
Beyond traditional fields like construction and energy, the two nations are seeking to increase the scope of cooperation into other sectors, including ICT, nuclear power and health care.
Dominic Raab has been branded a „dictator“ as his rivals for the Tory leadership condemned his refusal to rule out shutting down Parliament in order to deliver a no-deal Brexit.
The Queen may reject a Brexiteer Prime Minister’s demand to suspend Parliament to ram through a crash-out from the EU, a Whitehall grandee said today.
Lord Armstrong, who was Margaret Thatcher’s cabinet secretary, said the monarch could decide to consult Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, Speaker John Bercow and Lord Speaker Lord Fowler if she believed the Government was asking her to prorogue Parliament to neuter its “rights or duties”.
Brexiteer Sir Graham told BBC Radio 4’s Week in Westminster programme: “I’ve heard people suggest I would be an interim Prime Minister.
“My simple answer to that is I don’t think we need an interim Prime Minister.
“I don’t think the British people want people to be stepping in to do interim jobs. I think they’re be looking to chose someone for the long term.”
Ein Mitglied des parlamentarischen Verteidigungsausschusses teilte mit,
ihm liege die Information vor, dass Nordkorea ein Geschoss abgefeuert habe. Dieses soll etwa 420 Kilometer weit geflogen sein.
Nach Angaben des südkoreanischen Militärs könnte es sich dabei um Geschosse aus Mehrfachraketenwerfern mit einem Kaliber von 240 und 300 Millimeter und strategische Lenkwaffen neuen Typs gehandelt haben.
Now Iran’s leaders, by threatening the deal, are playing in to Trump’s hands and doing exactly what he wants them to do. They could also be giving Bolton exactly the excuse he is looking for.
Rouhani drohte zudem, man werde Uran wieder anreichern, falls binnen 60 Tagen keine neuen Bedingungen für das Atomabkommen vereinbart werden. In dieser Zeit müssten die verbliebenen Vertragspartner Deutschland, Frankreich, Großbritannien, Russland und China wie zugesichert dafür sorgen, dass die iranische Öl- und Finanzindustrie vor den Folgen der Sanktionen des Ex-Vertragsstaats USA geschützt werde.
In einem Schreiben wird Rouhani den Angaben zufolge erklären, dass der Iran bei der Umsetzung des Atomdeals sehr viel Geduld gezeigt habe. Da sich aber die Gegenseite nicht an Verpflichtungen gehalten habe, werde auch der Iran „schrittweise seine Verpflichtungen reduzieren.“ Eine erste Phase der Reduzierung soll schon in dieser Woche eingeleitet werden.
Tehran is likely to revive part of its halted nuclear programme on Wednesday in response to the U.S. move but does not plan to pull out of the agreement itself, state media has said.
Any decision taken by indicative votes would not compel the government into pursuing that course of action, but would show what Parliament wants and where the most votes lie.
