    Police say a man faked his own murder using a gun and a weather balloon

    A murder investigation in a peaceful golf community in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, has come to a bizarre conclusion. Now, police say a 71-year-old man who was found shot to death in the community in late January wasn't killed at all. He actually killed himself -- in a very unusual way.

    US lawmakers slam Donald Trump as 'weak' in Russia summit; some push new sanctions

    Leading U.S. lawmakers, including numerous Republicans, criticized President Donald Trump on Monday for failing to confront Russian President Vladimir Putin over Moscow's meddling in the 2016 U.S. election as the two heads of nuclear powers stood side-by-side at a joint news conference. Trump, speaking in Helsinki after his first summit with Putin, said he saw no reason to believe his own country's intelligence agencies over the Kremlin leader's assurances that Russia did not interfere...

    A 10-year-old girl was shot dead when four masked gunmen opened fire in Washington, D.C. on Monday night, and now "outraged" police officers are urging the public to help bring the unknown shooters to justice.

    Germany: We Can’t Trust the Whack Job in the White House

    When Donald Trump shocked the world and won the presidential election (with a little help from his Russian friends), leaders around the globe immediately sprang into action in an attempt to figure out how to interact with a guy who had spent most of his campaign flaming global alliances. Justin Trudeau whisked the president’s favorite child off to the theater. Emmanuel Macron rolled out the red carpet and presented Trump with an array of shiny objects, including a military parade. Angela Merkel held Trump’s hand and attempted to explain complex concepts in a way she thought his small brain could understand.

    Investment in energy fell again in 2017, raising fresh concerns about security and climate change

    The amount of money flowing into the energy sector fell for a third straight year in 2017, raising concerns about the world's ability to provide enough power and tackle climate change, the International Energy Agency reported Tuesday. On the whole, governments and businesses plowed $1.8 trillion into the infrastructure, equipment and resources that keep the world running. That means global energy investment fell by 2 percent from 2016 after adjusting for inflation, and the IEA warned the trend does not appear to be reversing.

    Trump surprised at fierce criticism of Putin news conference

    President Donald Trump was upbeat immediately after his news conference with Vladimir Putin in Finland, but by the time he returned stateside on Monday evening, his mood had soured considerably amid sustained fury at his extraordinary embrace of the Russian leader. Now, his aides are wondering how he'll respond to anger from even his staunchest supporters after he sided with Putin over US intelligence agencies investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election.

    Trump said he'd bring up election meddling. He gave Putin a wink instead.

    U.S. President Donald Trump failed to mention Russia’s attack on the 2016 presidential election during his opening exchange with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki Monday, prefering to give the autocrat a wink and a line of flattery about hosting the World Cup. The leaders finally shook hands shortly after 2 p.m. local time (7 a.m. ET) — the handshake lasting just three seconds, accompanied by stern expressions from across the table.

    Wave of condemnation hits Trump after summit with Putin

    That’s the swift and sweeping condemnation directed at President Donald Trump on Monday after he sided with Russian President Vladimir Putin during a stunning appearance in Helsinki — and that’s just from the Republicans. Lawmakers in both major parties and former intelligence officials appeared shocked, dismayed and uneasy with Trump’s suggestion that he believes Putin’s denial of interfering in the 2016 elections. It was a remarkable break with U.S. intelligence officials and the Justice Department. And just as alarming for some, Trump also put the two countries on the same footing when casting blame for their strained relations.

    Trump made a mess, but it wasn’t an accident — and he won’t clean it up

    President Donald Trump blew it for the U.S. and its allies, but there’s little chance he’ll clean up the mess he made. Sure, he’s taking criticism, even from some loyalists, for cozying up to Russian President Vladimir Putin, choosing not to hold Putin accountable for Russia’s attacks in its backyard and in the West, and generally telling NATO countries to go defend themselves. No U.S. president ever returned home from a foreign trip having so aggressively departed from the advice of the bipartisan foreign policy establishment, and even his own advisers.

    It started out as a civil rights battle in a Tampa courtroom, and now a cell phone password might be a defendant’s key to freedom. A judge threw William Montanez behind bars for failing to unlock his phones Thursday, which wasn’t how Montanez or his attorney expected their day in court to end. "Basically, my client has been denied his liberty today without due process," said attorney Patrick Leduc. To understand how Montanez got here, we go back to June 21. Montanez was on the road when suddenly he got pulled over for not properly yielding.

    Ex-President Jimmy Carter unloads on 'cruel' Trump: US government is now 'worse than it has been before'

    Pardoned Oregon rancher to focus on putting God in public schools

    Last year, Western land activists and other conservatives had been lobbying President Donald Trump to pardon rancher Cliven Bundy, who in 2014 had engaged in an armed standoff with federal officials trying to confiscate his cattle that were trespassing on public property. But earlier this year, a federal judge dropped all the charges against Bundy thanks to misconduct by prosecutors, and there was no longer any need for Trump to pardon him. So Trump last week did the next best thing...

Their task, according to documents and interviews, was to ensure that the radioactive materials did not fall into the wrong hands on the way back to Idaho, where the government maintains a stockpile of nuclear explosive materials for the military and others.

While many public commentators, like Ta-Nehisi Coates, have underlined the enduring character of racism in America, and the ways in which America's racial divide has exacted a particular kind of toll on black men and boys, there is today, unheralded, good news about African-American men.

It is good that we are independent today,” said Merkel, who grew up in East Germany, a former satellite state of the Soviet Union.

Authorities say John Miller of Grabill agreed to speak with police Sunday in Fort Wayne and made incriminating statements about abducting, assaulting and killing April Tinsley. An affidavit released by the Allen County prosecutor says investigators have DNA evidence linking Miller to the girl. A recent search of Miller's trash helped police make a DNA match. Charges could be formally filed this week. It wasn't immediately known if Miller has a lawyer who could comment on the arrest.

Speaking alongside her at Chequers, the president said: “I didn’t criticise the prime minister, I have a lot of respect for the prime minister.” Mr Trump also stepped back from his warning, in The Sun, that her Brexit plan would “kill” any trade deal – as long as there were no “restrictions”.
