Melania Trump takes dim view of Ivana Trump’s comment

    Melania Trump had a message for US President Donald Trump’s first wife Ivana on Monday: Enough of the self serving comments. The US first lady was responding to Ivana Trump’s interview on ABC’s Good Morning America program in which she jokingly referred to herself as first lady while promoting her book, Raising Trump. I have the direct number to White House but I don’t really want to call him there because Melania is there, the Czech-American, who was married to Donald Trump from 1977 to 1992, told ABC. I don’t really want to cause any kind of jealousy or something like that because I’m basically first Trump wife, OK? I’m first lady, OK? Melania Trump’s spokeswoman issued a statement that mentioned her son with Donald Trump, Barron. Mrs. Trump has made the White House a ho...

Why US officials fear North Korea could launch missile today

    US Government officials say they fear North Korea could launch a missile today as the rogue nation celebrates a public holiday. October 10 in North Korea is celebrated as Party Foundation Day, the day the ruling party of North Korea - now known as the Workers' Party of Korea was formed in 1945. An official spoke to Reuters, on the condition of anonymity, saying there had been indications a missile launch could be scheduled, but couldn't reveal any further intelligence. That comes after a Russian lawmaker, who has just return from Pyongyang last week, said preparations were underway. They are preparing for new tests of a long-range missile, Anton Morozov told Russian media. They even gave us mathematical calculations that they believe prove that their missile can hit the we...

Russia accused US of pretending to fight Islamic State in Syria and Iraq

    Spokesman for the Russian Defence Ministry, Major-General Igor Konashenkov speaks during a news conference, dedicated to the crash of the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 plane operating flight MH17, in Moscow, Russia, September 26, 2016. Russia accused the United States on Tuesday of pretending to fight Islamic State and of deliberately reducing its air strikes in Iraq to allow the group’s militants to stream into Syria to slow the Russian-backed advance of the Syrian army. In the latest sign of rising tensions between Moscow and Washington, the Russian Defense Ministry said in a statement that the US-led coalition had sharply reduced its air strikes in Iraq in September when Syrian forces, backed by Russian air power, had started to retake Deir al-Zor Province. Everyone sees...

Brexit Backup threatens to clog this crucial artery to 17 Mile

    Every day as many as 10,000 trucks rumble through the Port of Dover, whose towering white cliffs face continental Europe across the narrowest stretch of the English Channel. Rigs loaded with French cheese, German car parts, and other European goods roll off ferries and onto British highways, while trucks hauling Scotch whisky and Welsh lamb bound for the Continent glide through passport checks in two minutes on average. Traffic through the facility amounts to almost a fifth of all the U.K.’s trade in goods, worth about £122 billion ($165 billion) annually. Brexit threatens to clog this crucial artery. Port officials warn that increasing the average time it takes trucks to clear customs by as little as two minutes could lead to 17-mile (27-kilometer) traffic jams. And with ...

British PM urged the public to prepare for no deal Brexit

    Theresa May has warned the British public to prepare for crashing out of the EU with no deal, setting out emergency plans to avoid border meltdown for businesses and travellers. As hopes of an agreement appeared to fade at home and abroad, the Prime Minister for the first time set out detailed steps to minimise disruption on Brexit day in 2019. They included plans for huge inland lorry parks to cope with the lengthy new customs checks that will be needed to avoid ports becoming traffic-choked. The move came as Ms May admitted she expected the deadlocked negotiations to drag on for another year before any possible breakthrough. At Westminster, Brexiteer Tories exploited the Prime Minister’s weakness after last week’s attempted coup to demand that Chancellor Philip Hammond, ...
