FAA confronts Boeing over internal messages revealing flaws

A Boeing pilot told a co-worker that he unknowingly misled safety regulators about a flight-control system on the now-grounded 737 MAX, according to the transcript of instant messages that the company belatedly turned over to federal officials. The pilot, Mark Forkner, told another Boeing employee about problems with the flight system, known as MCAS, during a session in a flight simulator. "So I basically lied to the regulators (unknowingly)," Forkner wrote in a message from 2016.

Trump Administration Gets High Court Review on Quick Deportation

(Bloomberg) -- The U.S. Supreme Court agreed to hear a Trump administration appeal that could bolster the government's ability to deport undocumented immigrants quickly after their asylum bids are rejected.Taking up a politically charged issue, the justices said they'll review a lower court's conclusion that people who enter the country illegally have a broad right under the Constitution to make their case to a federal judge before being deported.The case centers on "expedited removal," a streamlined deportation process set up by Congress in 1996. Right now, those eligible include thousands of people who every year are arrested within 100 miles of the border less than two weeks after...

Democrats Think They Can Win without You
Democrats Think They Can Win without You

A  few days ago, Ericka Anderson, an old friend of National Review, popped up in the pages of the New York Times lamenting that "the Democratic presidential field neglects abundant pools of potential Democrat converts, leaving persuadable audiences - like independents and Trump-averse, anti-abortion Christians (some of whom are white evangelicals) - without options."It's not fair to expect the Democratic party to re-tailor its positions to appeal to conservatives disgruntled with Trump. When a Democrat and a Republican get into a bidding war for the vote of a conservative, the Republican is almost always going to win. And Democrats could reasonably argue that depending on how strictly or...

Fox News attempted to help "acting" White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney clean up his admission of a "quid pro quo" with Ukraine, but Fox & Friends Weekend host and reporter Ed Henry wasn't quite ready to let him off the hook.After telling the press corp on Thursday that there is "going to be political influence in foreign policy" and that they should just "get over it," Mulvaney released a statement later in the day that walked back his comments and blamed the media for supposedly twisting his words."Once again, the media has decided to misconstrue my comments to advance a biased and political witch hunt against President Trump," Mulvaney said.

Cartel gunmen terrorize Mexican city, free El Chapo's son

Heavily armed fighters surrounded security forces in a Mexican city on Thursday and made them free one of drug lord Joaquin 'El Chapo' Guzman's sons, after his capture triggered gunbattles and a prison break that sent civilians scurrying for cover.

He said he "believes" that compliance will be forthcoming.If I really need to engage with this nonsense, I'll go ahead and note that the American people don't support gun confiscation - even in polls where they endorse banning sales of new assault weapons; that compliance with gun bans is low...

Cathay woes pile up as passenger figures dip again in September

Cathay Pacific cut its economic outlook on Friday following a second successive drop in monthly passenger traffic after the airline faced a backlash from Beijing over Hong Kong's heated pro-democracy protests. The marquee brand has had a torrid few months, coming under fire from Chinese state media and authorities because some of its 27,000 employees took part in -- or were sympathetic to -- the anti-government demonstrations. Overall passenger traffic fell 7.1 percent in September, the airline said, with inbound traffic into its Hong Kong hub plunging 38 percent for the second month running.

Trump's former personal lawyer says Rudy Giuliani has 'gone off the rails,' has a secret Ukraine ledger

Jay Goldberg, President Trump's personal lawyer for 15 years, told MSNBC's Ari Melber on Thursday night that he warned Trump not to hire his current personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani."I think he's gone off the rails," Goldberg said of Giuliani, now being scrutinized by federal prosecutors in Manhattan for his work in Ukraine. "I think he will have legal liability." When Trump asked him last March if he should retain Giuliani's legal services, "I said despite his background, which as extraordinarily good, Giuliani would not make a good defense-type lawyer," Goldberg said, because "he had spent too much time as a prosecutor; prosecutors can generally go...

Think young people are hostile to capitalism now? Just wait for the next recession.

Though the panic that erupted during the summer months about a potential recession has cooled somewhat since, especially with the impeachment drama taking up most of our collective attention, signs of a looming economic downturn nevertheless remain. Job growth has slowed, levels of corporate and consumer debt have both reached all-time highs (surpassing levels last seen before the Great Recession), and the yield curve measuring the difference between 10-year and 3-month Treasury bond yields has been "inverted" for months. The economist Campbell Harvey, whose research showed that the inverted yield curve accurately predicted the last seven recessions, recently said that the...

Russian Cyber Unit That Went Dark After Hacking DNC Is Still Spying

JACK GUEZA stealthy Russian cyber espionage ring known as "The Dukes" is back on security experts' radar nearly three years after vanishing without a trace. One clue that they were operating came in the form of a cryptic Reddit post that turned out to be a secret signaling mechanism for the spies' malware.Also called "Cozy Bear" and "APT29,"  the Dukes have been linked to Russia's Foreign Intelligence Service, the SVR. They're stealthy, sophisticated operators best known as the other Russian hackers in the DNC's network-the ones who lurked quietly, undetected by the Democrats, for nearly a year before the GRU's hackers barged in to carry out Putin's 2016 election interference plan. In...

Japan typhoon death toll rises to 58 as hopes for missing fade

The death toll in the worst typhoon to hit Japan for decades climbed to 58 on Tuesday as rescuers slogged through mud and debris in an increasingly grim search for the missing and as thousands of homes remained without power or water.

Ted Cruz urges Hong Kong protesters to shun violence, accuses Carrie Lam of 'weakness'

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) wasn't able to make any inroads with Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam during his visit to the city Saturday, but he did get a chance to meet with a few pro-democracy protesters.Cruz was supposed to meet with Lam, but he was informed upon landing that the meeting was canceled. Cruz said Lam's office had asked that the details of their meeting remain secret and requested Cruz not speak to the press about it.

Taliban commanders released as hopes rise for resumption of US peace negotiations

Hopes are rising for the resumption of the abandoned Taliban and US peace talks after eleven senior Taliban members were freed from prison in an exchange with three kidnapped Indian engineers.
