Homicides in Mexico fall again, government says, despite spectacular attacks


Homicides in Mexico fall again, government says, despite spectacular attacks The number of homicides in Mexico fell for the third month running in September, official data shows, despite a spate of mass killings and shootouts. President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has struggled to live up to his campaign pledge to reduce gang violence that has plagued Mexico for well over a decade. This month, Mexico has been roiled by a series of violent events, including the massacre of 13 police officers last Monday, the death of 15 people in a shootout a day later, and a major gunfight in the city of Culiacan on Thursday.

‘It’s too much’: Democrats shudder at Trump’s money machine


‘It’s too much’: Democrats shudder at Trump’s money machine Donald Trump and the Republican National Committee have raised more than $300 million this year for his reelection — more than any other sitting president in history at this point in the campaign. Trump has nearly twice as much cash on hand — $158 million, between his campaign account and the RNC — as Barack Obama and the Democratic National Committee had at this time in his successful re-election run. Already this year, Trump’s campaign operation has spent close to $23 million on TV and digital advertising, more than 10 times the amount that the lone major Democratic super PAC spending against him, Priorities USA, has laid out so far in its online-only spending campaign.

Outcry in Ukraine over song mocking ex-central bank chief


Outcry in Ukraine over song mocking ex-central bank chief Ukrainian officials on Monday lashed out at a comedy show that targeted the former central bank chief by joking about a recent arson attack on her home. Kvartal 95 is arguably the country's most beloved comedy show and was led by Volodymyr Zelenskiy before he was elected president in April this year. Valeria Gontareva's house in Kyiv was firebombed last month in an attack that many said was retribution over her leadership in nationalizing PrivatBank in 2016 from its oligarch owner Ihor Kolomoyskyi.

Betrayal, Jealousy and Cliff Edges: Johnson’s Brexit Minefield


Betrayal, Jealousy and Cliff Edges: Johnson’s Brexit Minefield (Bloomberg) -- Boris Johnson is giving members of Parliament only a few days to debate the most important change to Britain’s constitution in almost 50 years. The outcome will decide the fate of Brexit and potentially his own future.Unlike his predecessor, Theresa May, the prime minister wants Britain to have far looser ties with the European Union after leaving, which means withdrawing in full from the bloc’s customs union. That decision may have helped him to pacify the Tory right, which torpedoed May’s proposals three times, but it leaves him facing opposition on multiple fronts. The opposition Labour party, for starters, wants to remain in the EU customs union.With the voting in Parliament on whether to back his deal too close to call, here are some of the key issues that Johnson has to navigate.Northern IrelandThe Democratic Unionist Party has refused to back his deal because it would see Northern Ireland being treated differently for customs purposes to the rest of the U.K. The grouping is also unhappy that it won’t be able to exercise a veto on the arrangements, after Johnson diluted it in an effort to secure the EU’s backing for his plans.The DUP’s view matters because the opposition of the party’s 10 MPs contributed to Johnson losing a key Brexit vote on Saturday. Can he win them over? Unlikely, as my colleague Dara Doyle has explained here.Johnson Has a Big Brexit Problem: His Northern Irish FriendsScotlandIf they can have it, why can’t we? Voters in Scotland, who overwhelming wanted to remain in the EU, are unlikely to relish the idea that Johnson’s deal will give Northern Ireland special treatment. The province will be closely aligned with the EU’s customs rules, potentially giving companies in the region an advantage over their Scottish peers.The Scottish National Party will almost certainly ramp up pressure for a second independence referendum after Brexit. Will Johnson be able to avoid the breakup of the U.K.?2020 Cliff EdgeAs the U.K. has frittered away a year of its two-year transition period already, the Withdrawal Agreement Bill creates a new cliff edge: If a free trade agreement hasn’t been reached with the EU by the end of 2020, then we are back to leaving without a deal. When Conservative MP John Baron pointed this out in a BBC interview, waverers took it to mean that Johnson isn’t serious about leaving with a divorce agreement.The Not-So-Level Playing FieldThe prime minister moved the U.K.’s commitments to abide by EU standards on tax, labor protections and environmental standards from the Withdrawal Agreement into the Political Declaration -- which, crucially, isn’t legally binding.Johnson has pledged to protect labor rights, but opposition Labour politicians are deeply skeptical he really means it. He will need to convince at least a few to believe him if he is to get his deal through Parliament.Second Referendum?Labour is backing an amendment to put Johnson’s Brexit deal to hold another referendum -- something the government has so far resisted.To contact the reporter on this story: Edward Evans in London at eevans3@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Tim Ross at tross54@bloomberg.net, Stuart BiggsFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

U.S. Supreme Court tosses challenge to Republican-drawn Michigan electoral maps


U.S. Supreme Court tosses challenge to Republican-drawn Michigan electoral maps The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday threw out a challenge to Republican-drawn electoral districts in Michigan that Democrats said were illegally configured to dilute their voting power, an action taken in the aftermath of major rulings by the justices in June prohibiting federal courts from hearing such claims. The Supreme Court's action voided an order in April by a three-judge panel to rework 34 districts in the state legislature and U.S. House of Representatives whose boundaries were crafted purely to advantage Republicans, a practice known as partisan gerrymandering. In a blow to election reformers, the justices found that federal courts have no role to play in reining in electoral map manipulation by politicians aimed at entrenching one party in power.

Philippine police recommend drug charges against ex-chief


Philippine police recommend drug charges against ex-chief Philippine police recommended graft and drug charges against its former chief on Monday over a new scandal that has put President Rodrigo Duterte's anti-narcotics crackdown under the spotlight. The police face allegations some officers are involved in the illegal drugs trade and that they had the protection of former chief Oscar Albayalde. It is the latest controversy to engulf the Philippine police force, which is waging a drug war launched by President Duterte in 2016. Číst dále >>> Přeložit do en

It’s Not Just Ronan Farrow: NBC News Killed My Rape-Allegation Story Too


It’s Not Just Ronan Farrow: NBC News Killed My Rape-Allegation Story Too Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast/Photos GettyIn the days leading up to the publication of Catch & Kill, Ronan Farrow’s blockbuster account of his dealings with NBC News, I have been struck by the company’s insistence that Ronan didn’t have the Harvey Weinstein story in the bag. I don’t believe a word of what it says because in 2018, the network killed my MeToo story that was being reported by MSNBC host Joy-Ann Reid. Incredibly, a year after NBC botched Farrow’s reporting on Harvey Weinstein, they had the audacity to do it again. In November 2017, I told Joy about my experience of being raped by Russell Simmons in 1994. I also shared that in 2006, former Extra co-host A.J. Calloway sexually assaulted me in his car and was subsequently arrested for his crime. When Joy and I first spoke, Russell had already been accused of rape by Keri Claussen Khalighi. In fact, she appeared as a guest on the now-defunct NBC show, Megyn Kelly Today. However, I would be the first woman to allege they had been sexually assaulted by Calloway. When NBC chose to squash my story, it not only abdicated its obligation to report news, it provided cover for a man who would later be accused of serial rape and sexual assault when my story was eventually published by The Hollywood Reporter the following summer. When I approached Joy, I had no idea that NBC had a reputation for not breaking news about men accused of sexual assault. Therefore, I had no reason to believe my story would be derailed by the network. After going through a thorough vetting process, an on-camera interview with Joy was taped on Jan. 7, 2018. While she’s a host on MSNBC, I was told that NBC was not taping it for the cable network but NBC itself, in order to get it a larger audience beyond Joy’s weekend show; also, it was to be paired with a lengthy print piece written by Joy for New York magazine. I was told the TV portion was scheduled to air on Jan. 13, 2018, but I received an email the day before from Joy asking me to reach out to her. When we spoke a few hours later, she informed me that Russell Simmons’ attorney had gone ballistic and NBC was not going to air the segment, and the New York magazine story was also on hold since they were paired. She assured me the story wasn’t dead, but that NBC simply needed more vetting done in order to feel comfortable with moving forward. I was disappointed, but still hopeful. As I would come to learn, my optimism was profoundly naive.Over the next several months, NBC put me through an elaborate and bizarre vetting process. I provided legal documentation, hospital bills, and over a dozen corroborating witnesses. Still, they stonewalled. I asked Joy repeatedly if NBC was going to do to her what it did to Ronan, and she said that she didn’t think so. We both agreed that it would reflect very poorly if word got out that the network had suppressed yet another story of alleged sexual assault.To expedite the increasingly expansive vetting process, Joy’s piece was assigned to an investigative unit that was supposed to help her clear the hurdles that NBC kept throwing in front of her about my story. In mid-February, she emailed me an explanation about why it was taking NBC so long to pull the trigger:“So basically the story got caught up in a couple of vices: the struggle to get comments from the principles (now mostly alleviated), threats from Russell’s lawyer that spooked NBC,” Joy told me via email. “So now NBC… is demanding that I do all of this additional reporting to meet a legal and standards review.”  Joy then said all that was left was for her to seek comment from people in Simmons’ camp who were aware of the assault, and corroboration of Calloway’s arrest. ‘Women Are Furious’: NBC Roiled by Farrow Book AccusationsNBC News Chief Noah Oppenheim’s Harvard Writings on Women and Sexual Assault Horrify StaffersI responded to her email by thanking her for the update. I added, “Still not clear why NBC is demanding more corroboration regarding A.J. [arrest]... his lawyer already confirmed the case, but I know this isn’t about you.”Almost two weeks went by before Joy contacted me with an update. “My team and I, my PA and senior producer helping me with the story met with the standards department rep today just to figure out what the heck’s going on,” she told me by phone. “I just have to get my company to have the guts to do the story,” she conceded. “I’ve never done a story that has this much evidence before. I have more evidence than the LA Times and The Ne Číst dále >>> Přeložit do en

Buttigieg Surge Makes Iowa a Three-Way Race: Campaign Update


Buttigieg Surge Makes Iowa a Three-Way Race: Campaign Update (Bloomberg) -- Pete Buttigieg’s support in Iowa has swelled and put him within striking distance of front-runners Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren, according to a new USA Today/Suffolk University poll released Monday.The poll, taken Oct. 16-18, found the South Bend mayor with 13% support among 500 Democrats likely to attend the first-in-the-nation caucuses. Buttigieg trails former Vice President Biden at 18% and Massachusetts Senator Warren at 17%.The results show Buttigieg has surged by 7 percentage points since the a USA Today/Suffolk poll conducted at the end of June, when he only had support from 6% of respondents and Biden led Warren by double digits. The new poll has a margin of error of plus-or-minus 4.4 percentage points.The biggest loser during that time frame has been California Senator Kamala Harris, who vaulted to second place after a strong showing in the first Democratic debate in June but has fallen 13 percentage points and is now in a three-way tie for sixth place.COMING UPCory Booker is scheduled to speak at the National Press Club in Washington at 1 p.m. on Wednesday.Julian Castro, Beto O’Rourke and Bernie Sanders are to attend a town hall hosted by the League of United Latin American Citizens on Thursday from 7-9 p.m. local time.Biden, Booker, Buttigieg, Castro, Harris, Amy Klobuchar, Sanders and Warren are set to attend a forum hosted by the Bipartisan Justice Center in Columbia, S.C., Oct. 25-27.(Updates with poll margin of error in third paragraph.
