"Over the past decade, the Taliban delegations have visited Tehran many times, but the Iran-Taliban consultations...

    San Francisco (CNN Business)TikTok is up for grabs. But while the popular short-form video app likely won't lack for suitors, President Donald Trump says the US government needs to get a "substantial amount of money" as part of any deal.It's a demand that experts say is far outside the norm at best, and if it were to be met could set a dangerous precedent. "It's really not for the President to say that a deal can go through or a deal can't go through, or that a company must pay a ransom to the United States government or get a deal done by a particular deadline," said Avery Gardiner, general counsel and senior fellow for competition, data and power at...
    Cody Fenwick August 5, 2020 9:06AM (UTC) This article originally appeared on AlterNet. A new interview of President Donald Trump with Axios' Jonathan Swan garnered much attention and acclaim for the reporter on Tuesday, with many stunned at the level of ignorance, incompetence, and callousness on display in the White House. But to be frank, while Swan put up some resistance to Trump and fact-checked him at key moments, he actually let the president get away with a lot of lying and dishonest spinning. Of course, this is what the president does — he spews disinformation and tries to bulldoze anyone who challenges him — which makes him difficult to interview. Much of it made Trump look ridiculous and...

He began, “So just to put this into context for myself, to those who accuse the United States of being a totalitarian state, I don’t buy it, because I don’t remember many hearings like this in Germany, where you call the Gestapo...

The controversy centers on her praise of murderous communist dictator Fidel Castro. Rubio said during a conference call that Bass would be “the highest-ranking Castro sympathizer in the history of the United States government” if Biden picks her. “This is something that she will now want to deflect from, but I don’t believe in the last six decades that there has ever been anyone considered for the vice presidency … with this level of sympathy towards a Marxist regime,” Rubio said, and later added that Bass’s attempt to...

    “The family first, then the money.” Messages like this happen in American sport to explain the resignation of its professionals to participate in the return of the major leagues by Covid-19. The domain was launched for several weeks and does not stop. A similar phenomenon has not occurred in Spain. Fali, Cdiz’s defense, threatened not to play again, but his intention was diluted with the passage of days. In the ACB there were players who did not return to Spain, as happened to Bara with Delaney. Baseball, with its MLB League, seemed the manager to give confidence to the United States by being the first to return. It has been the other way around. Four days after restarting the games,...
    It is more likely that you know an Alex Jones true believer in 2020 than might have been the case in 2016. The really scary part is, that person might not even consider him or herself a Jones fan despite believing in a lie, or several, that Jones is responsible for hurling into the larger public sphere. But thanks to Jones and people like him, large portions of the public refuse to believe in basic facts. They will, however, believe him and the people who parrot his lies and illogic, including our country’s current president and his political enablers. A Pew Research Center survey conducted from March 10-16, 2020, backs this up: nearly 30% of Americans believe the novel coronavirus that causes...

    Donald Trump wants at all costs to reopen schools, while the situation is worsening in twenty states. With a total of more than 3 million cases and some 135,000 deaths, America is sinking into crisis.

    Donald Trump campaigned on the claim that the United States was not respected in the world. That it was being laughed at.

In the remarks, Barr also accuses Democratic members of the House Judiciary committee of trying to "discredit" him.
