May Loses Brexit Vote in Landslide, Faces Confidence Vote

May Loses Brexit Vote in Landslide, Faces Confidence Vote Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit deal was rejected by Parliament in a humiliating defeat, her plan for leaving the European Union all but dead.

Two Republicans Push ‘Border Bonds’ to Let Americans Finance a Wall

Two Republicans Push ‘Border Bonds’ to Let Americans Finance a Wall Representatives Steven Palazzo of Mississippi and Andy Harris of Maryland, both members of the House Appropriations Committee, introduced the Border Bonds for America Act of 2019 -- a law that would allow Americans to buy such securities from the U.S. The money would be put in a trust fund and used just to build a wall along the nearly 2,000 mile (3,200 kilometer) border. The tactic echoes the Liberty Bond program, which appealed to Americans’ sense of patriotism to raise funds during World War I.


Kenya Hunts Gunmen in Fatal Hotel Attack Claimed by Al-Qaeda

Kenya Hunts Gunmen in Fatal Hotel Attack Claimed by Al-Qaeda The attack on 14 Riverside Drive in Nairobi began with an explosion targeting three vehicles in the parking lot and then a suicide-bombing in the foyer of a Dusit Hotels & Resorts Co. outlet, police Inspector-General Joseph Boinnet said Tuesday in a televised briefing. Al-Shabaab, an affiliate of al-Qaeda based in neighboring Somalia, said it killed 47 people in the attack, according to Radio Andalus, a broadcaster that supports its insurgency. The group didn’t say how it obtained the figure, but if its involvement was confirmed it would be the Islamists’ first significant assault in Kenya since a raid on a university campus in Garissa county in April 2015 that killed at least 147 people.

PG&E, utility tied to California wildfires, to file for bankruptcy

PG&E, utility tied to California wildfires, to file for bankruptcy Pacific Gas and Electric, the utility company that has been tied to deadly wildfires in California, said Monday it plans to file for bankruptcy protection at the end of the month.

The utility has also been sued over blazes in 2017 that devastated the wine region in Northern California and left more than 40 people dead.


Venezuela's Maduro offers few fresh ideas as economy circles drain

Venezuela's Maduro offers few fresh ideas as economy circles drain After promising ambitious economic measures ahead of Monday's speech, Maduro's proposals included a 300 percent minimum wage hike, dialogue with business leaders, and increased use of an inexistent state-backed cryptocurrency. There is nothing there that allows one to think that Venezuela will exit the deep crisis it's experiencing," said Asdrubal Oliveros, director of Caracas-based consultancy Ecoanalitica, on Twitter. The socialist government, they say, funds wage hikes by increasing the country's monetary supply, causing inflation to accelerate and negating any benefit an increase in the minimum wage could bring for Venezuelans.
