Election analyst flips 11 states toward Democrats due to Trump

Getty

The nonpartisan Cook Political Report has shifted 11 states on its election scorecard toward Democrats since Donald Trump became the presumptive Republican presidential nominee. “This has been an exceedingly unpredictable year,” the analyst said. “Although we remain convinced that Hillary Clinton is very vulnerable and would probably lose to most other Republicans, Donald Trump’s historic unpopularity with wide swaths of the electorate — women, millennials, independents and Latinos — make him the initial November underdog.” Colorado, Florida, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin were all shifted from toss-up states to leaning Democratic. The “solid Republican” states Missouri and Indiana were downgraded to…

Russia’s Mariinsky Theatre staged a surprise concert in the amphitheatre of the Syrian city of Palmyra on Thursday, in what looked like an attempt by the Kremlin to win hearts and minds and remind the world of its role in the city’s recapture. The concert, held just over a month after Russian air strikes helped push Islamic State militants out of Palmyra, saw Valery Gergiev, a close associate of President Vladimir Putin, conduct the Mariinsky orchestra. Sergei Roldugin, a cellist friend of Putin’s named in the Panama Paper leaks as owning a network of offshore firms that have handled billions…

Former Republican presidents will not endorse Trump

BBC

Former US presidents George H W Bush and George W Bush will not endorse Donald Trump’s candidacy for president, aides have told local media. This marks a first for the 91-year-old former president Bush, who had endorsed Republicans in the past five elections. Republican politicians are struggling to define their support, or lack thereof, for Donald Trump. Mr Trump’s remaining opponents dropped out earlier this week leaving him as the presumptive Republican nominee. Both Bush men had previously campaigned this year for former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, who exited the race in February. They had each supported past Republican presidential…

GOP urged to confirm Supreme Court nominee after Trump win

Greg Nash, The Hill

A top conservative blog is urging Senate Republicans to confirm President Obama’s Supreme Court pick after Donald Trump’s win in Indiana’s GOP presidential primary. “Now that Donald Trump is the presumptive nominee, this is not even a close call. There is absolutely no reason to drag this out any longer. [Merrick] Garland is not a great choice, but he is not a terrible one, either,” Leon H. Wolf, the managing editor of the conservative website RedState, wrote Wednesday. The comments come after Trump victory Tuesday night, forcing Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) out of the GOP race and securing a spot…

Breast cancer: Scientists hail ‘milestone’ genetic find

SPL

Scientists say they now have a near-perfect picture of the genetic events that cause breast cancer. The study, published in Nature, has been described as a “milestone” moment that could help unlock new ways of treating and preventing the disease. The largest study of its kind unpicked practically all the errors that cause healthy breast tissue to go rogue. Cancer Research UK said the findings were an important stepping-stone to new drugs for treating cancer. To understand the causes of the disease, scientists have to understand what goes wrong in our DNA that makes healthy tissue turn cancerous. The international…

The Trump effect: Koch-linked groups abandon GOP primary for Senate races

Billionaire Charles Koch said earlier this year he was unimpressed with the anti-Muslim rhetoric used by Donald Trump. Photograph: Paul Sancya/AP   Key conservative groups backed by the billionaire Koch brothers and their network of rich allies are plowing millions into Senate races after becoming frustrated by the overheated rhetoric and policies of leading Republican presidential candidates – especially frontrunner Donald Trump – and opting to stay out of the primaries. Three leading groups – Americans for Prosperity, Freedom Partners Chamber of Commerce, and Concerned Veterans for America – supported by the Koch donor network spent almost $4m on ads in just…

Britain under pressure to end opposition to tax haven blacklist

 Pierre Moscovici has been leading EU efforts on tax transparency. Photograph: Laurent Dubrule/EPA Britain is under growing pressure to end its opposition to an EU blacklist of tax havens, as the European commission vowed to step up action on tax transparency following the leak of the Panama Papers. Pierre Moscovici, the European commissioner in charge of tax policy, said he was outraged by the revelations in the leak of 11.5m files from the Panama-based law firm Mossack Fonseca. The extent of illegal activity was unclear, he told journalists in Brussels, but much of it was “clearly immoral, unethical and simply unacceptable”….
