|Trump orders intelligence community to cooperate with review on Russia probe origins ||Lowe: How Golden State reclaimed its juggernaut style |
U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday ordered the intelligence community to cooperate with Attorney General William Barr's review of the events that prompted an investigation into links between the Trump campaign and Russia. The directive comes as the White House spars with congressional Democrats over the work of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who led a two-year investigation into whether Russia meddled in the 2016 U.S. election and if there were any ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.

|Theresa May Resigns after Failing to Secure Brexit Deal ||DT McCoy targeting contender: 'I want to win' |
British Prime Minister Theresa May announced on Friday that she will resign effective June 7, conceding that it was “in the best interest of the country” that her Conservative party choose a new leader to preside over Britain's scheduled October departure from the European Union.May's emotional announcement, made from the steps of No. 10 Downing Street, represents the culmination of six months of failed negotiations in which she proved unable to secure support among fellow conservatives for the soft Brexit deal she negotiated with Brussels.“I feel as certain today as I did three years ago that in a democracy, if you give people a choice you have a duty to implement what they decide. I have done my best to do that,” she said. “I have done everything I can to convince MPs to back that deal. Sadly, I have not been able to do so.”The substantial pressure on May to resign after a series of failed votes to ratify her Brexit deal increased yet again last month in response to a historically bad showing for her Conservative party at the polls, where they lost more than 1,300 local seats.A number of May's most vocal detractors, including hard-line Brexiteer Boris Johnson, praised her decision to step down and said it might serve as an opportunity for the government to finalize a Brexit deal.> A very dignified statement from @theresa_may. Thank you for your stoical service to our country and the Conservative Party. It is now time to follow her urgings: to come together and deliver Brexit.> > -- Boris Johnson (@BorisJohnson) May 24, 2019Johnson resigned from May's cabinet earlier this year in opposition to the terms of May's Brexit deal, which he argued betrayed the will of the British people by leaving the country too entangled with the EU.May's announcement comes days after Brexiteers and Remainers alike rejected a series of final changes to her Brexit deal, one of which set the stage for a possible second referendum. The Conservative party will hold a vote to determine her successor on June 10.

Why U.S. Engagement Policy Is The Correct One
Invariably, when one thinks of the efficacy of a nationâ€™s military, the mindâ€™s eye is drawn to the ability of that country to deliver a \"warhead onto the forehead\" of their enemies. Indeed, owing to the Pentagonâ€™s slick packaging of the First Gulf War, modern conflict, in the American mind, became synonymous with high-tech toys, grainy videos of successful missile shots, and a quick resolution of hostilities.
Living Wages Are A Global Problem
The recent protests for an increased minimum wage are part of a larger global protest. The purpose is the same for low wage earners all over the world; increase wages to match the cost of living, and allow workers to form unions if desired and needed. The global protest has gained media attention all over the world, but critics claim that is the only accomplishment the movement will have.
Ukraine: Not What It Seems
After tense days of fighting this week, people in Ukraine are mourning the dead and celebrating the removal of President Victor Yanukovych from power. The final struggle that began on February 18, was the bloodiest endured by the protesters of Euromaidan. By February 22 the fighting was over.
In a Five to Four Decision, Voting Just Got Harder
In a five to four decision along party lines, the Supreme Court ruled on the controversial Shelby County v. Holder case. The ruling, believed by many sets the nation back decades in Civil Rights, while others see it as the fault of Congress dropping the ball on updating the act when it should have years ago.
Coup Or Civil War In Egypt
The day after new protests erupted in Egypt the military in a show of support presented an ultimatum to Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood-led government. Morsi was to step down from power and meet all of the demands of the Egyptian people, or face being removed by the military on Wednesday. As the ultimatum deadline draws closer in Egypt, Morsi refuses to leave, insisting that parliamentary elections are needed before he should be removed, and that he doesn't have permission from the United States to remove himself from power. Most recently he stated he will pay with his life to preserve the sanctity of the ballot box.
