Russia must boost its combat readiness in response to NATO’s “aggressive actions” near Russia’s borders, President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday. Addressing parliament on the 75th anniversary of Nazi Germany’s attack on the Soviet Union, Putin berated the West for being unwilling to build “a modern, non-bloc collective security system” with Russia. “Russia is open to discuss this crucial issue and has more than once shown its readiness for dialogue,” he said. “But, just as it happened on the eve of World War Two, we do not see a positive reaction in response.” “On the contrary, NATO is strengthening its…

Gains against Islamic State not yet enough, could backfire: U.S. officials

Smoke rises from clashes with Islamic State militants in Falluja, Iraq, June 10, 2016. REUTERS/ALAA AL-MARJANI President Barack Obama and some administration officials have hailed recent military gains against Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, but other U.S. officials and outside experts warn that the U.S.-backed air and ground campaign is far from eradicating the radical Islamic group, and could even backfire. While Islamic State’s defeats in Iraq and Syria have erased its image of invincibility, they threaten to give it greater legitimacy in the eyes of disaffected Sunni Muslims because Shi’ite and Kurdish fighters are a major part of the…

From cash woes to digital #fails, Trump’s campaign is ‘worst of all possible worlds’

The Guardian

Judging by the headlines, Donald Trump’s presidential campaign is in meltdown. He sacked his campaign manager, raised a historically low amount of cash, and is tanking in opinion polls in key swing states. That’s just the start of it. Behind the scenes, in the largely invisible world of digital organizing on which modern presidential campaigns increasingly depend, Trump is not merely lagging behind – he’s not on the map. Technology is a key battleground in any election, and increasingly so. Trump may rule Twitter, yet there is no evidence that the real estate billionaire is doing anything to build the…

Trump’s ‘playbooks’ offer glimpse of ruthless business practices

Fox News

A federal judge has given the world an unprecedented glimpse into the ruthless business practices Donald Trump used to build his business empire. US district court judge Gonzalo Curiel on Tuesday made public more than 400 pages of Trump University “playbooks” describing how Trump staff should target prospective students’ weaknesses to encourage them to sign up for a $34,995 Gold Elite three-day package. Trump University staff were instructed to get people to pile on credit card debt and to target their financial weaknesses in an attempt to sell them the high-priced real estate courses. The documents contained an undated “personal…

Photograph: Andres Martinez Casares/Reuters The United Nations is showing the first signs of compromise over the Haiti cholera epidemic, after more than five years in which it has consistently refused to accept responsibility for a disaster that has claimed tens of thousands of lives.

Dems to Clinton: Ignore Trump on past scandals

The Hill

Democrats are offering a piece of straightforward advice for Hillary Clinton as Donald Trumpthreatens to dig up scandals from the 1990s: Ignore him. Clinton’s supporters shrug off concerns that the Trump attacks could stick. They say most voters will see Trump as dredging up rumors as part of an anything-goes strategy to win the White House. And they think it will backfire on the presumptive GOP nominee, especially if Clinton responds with arguments about how she wants to solve the nation’s problems. “You hear one presidential candidate talking about something 30 years ago, blaming her for his actions and blaming…

Brazil’s ousted House speaker flexes muscle, faces ethics panel

Brazil’s suspended House speaker, Eduardo Cunha, defended himself before an ethics committee on Thursday, a day after the appointment of his ally as leader of the government coalition in the chamber showed the veteran lawmaker’s enduring political sway. The Supreme Court indefinitely suspended Eduardo Cunha this month on charges of obstructing a corruption investigation, just weeks after he orchestrated the approval of impeachment proceedings against President Dilma Rousseff in the lower house. The Senate voted last week to suspend Rousseff and put her on trial for breaking budget rules. Yet Cunha’s continued support from an array of minor parties and…
