Should I stay or should I run? Pompeo under pressure over U.S. Senate seat

Should I stay or should I run? Pompeo under pressure over U.S. Senate seatRepublican pressure on Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to run for the U.S. Senate next year to help keep the party’s majority intact is coming up against President Donald Trump’s hope of keeping one of his most trusted aides in his administration. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and other Senate Republicans believe the former U.S. congressman from Kansas would be a strong candidate should he decide to run for one of the state’s Senate seats in 2020. “Secretary Pompeo would clear the field and guarantee the Senate stays Republican,” said Scott Reed, senior political strategist at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

US to pull out thousands of troops under Taliban deal

US to pull out thousands of troops under Taliban dealAmerica could withdraw thousands of troops from Afghanistan in the coming months as part of an initial peace agreement with the Taliban. American and militant envoys meeting in Qatar's capital said they were optimistic of soon clinching a deal to end America's 18-year-old conflict. An initial deal would see US troop numbers fall to as low as 8,000 from their current level of 14,000, the Washington Post reported. In return the Taliban would have to give guarantees Afghan soil would not become a launchpad for transnational terrorist groups like al-Qaeda. They would also begin negotiating with the Afghan government to find a wider political settlement to the world's deadliest conflict. "I would say that they are 80 or 90 percent of the way there," one official told the paper. "But there is still a long way to go on that last 10 or 20 percent." Sources familiar with the talks said argument among the Taliban may still scupper a deal. The militants have until now demanded a full US withdrawal before they talk to Ashraf Ghani's government and it is unclear if hardliners will accept a partial withdrawal to start. Details of how and agreement might be monitored or verified were also still being hammered out. The conflict is now the deadliest in the world Credit: Reuters “Dissension in the Taliban ranks may yet throw spanners in the works. But overall it's positive,” said one official. It was not immediately clear if there was progress on the other element of talks, the Taliban's agreement to a ceasefire. Zalmay Khalilzad, Donald Trump's peace envoy, has said until now that a deal cannot be finalised until all the elements, including a truce, are agreed. Casualties have continued to mount steeply as sides in the conflict have continued to fight while negotiating. Mr Khalilzad is under intense pressure to find Mr Trump a way out of the war, which the US president has dismissed as a costly failure. The talks are also overshadowing campaigning for September's the Afghan presidential elections, with candidates unsure whether an election will even be held in the event of a deal.

Joe Biden ‘Never Heard’ Julian Castro’s Border Ideas When They Served Under Obama

Joe Biden ‘Never Heard’ Julian Castro’s Border Ideas When They Served Under ObamaJim Watson/AFP/GettyDuring Wednesday night’s CNN debate showdown, former Vice President Joe Biden jousted with one of Obama’s Cabinet members over the president’s legacy. It came when former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro called for ending the criminalization of unauthorized border crossings. Then moderator Don Lemon noted that the Obama administration deported almost 800,000 people in the first two years of his presidency. Would deportation numbers go up under Biden?“Absolutely not,” Biden retorted. “I found that the secretary, we sat together in many meetings, I never heard him talk about any of this when he was the secretary.”Then protests broke out, and Biden grinned in silence for a few moments until things calmed down.“We’re in a circumstance where if you say you can just cross the border, what do you say to all of those people around the world who want the same thing, to come to the United States, and make the case that they have to wait in line?” Biden continued. “The fact of the matter is, you should be able to—if you cross the border illegally, you should be able—it’s a crime.”“People should have to get in line,” Biden added. “That’s the problem.”Castro didn’t let the topic drop. “First, Mr. Vice President, it looks like one of us has learned the lessons of the past administration, and one of us hasn’t,” he said. And to be sure, Castro did criticize the Obama administration’s immigration stance during Obama’s presidency. Then New York Mayor Bill de Blasio joined the pile-on.“I didn’t hear whether you tried to stop them or not using your power in the White House,” he said. “Did you think it was a good idea or something that needed to be stopped?”Biden then pointed to Obama’s move to offer temporary deportation relief—known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA—to undocumented people who came to the U.S. as children. And he snapped at de Blasio for comparing President Trump and Obama. “I think it is absolutely bizarre,” the former vice president said. The immigration tiff culminated with New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker taking a final shot at the ex-V.P.“First of all, you can’t have it both ways,” he said. “You invoke President Obama more than anybody in this campaign. You can’t do it when it’s convenient and dodge it when it’s not.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip? Send it to The Daily Beast hereGet our top stories in your inbox every day.

Woman, 65, tasered by police after fleeing then kicking officer who stopped her over broken light: 'You're not placing me under no arrest'A 65-year-old woman was tasered after fleeing then kicking out at a police officer who stopped her over a broken light. Debra Hamil, from Oklahoma, has been charged after body camera footage showed her resisting arrest during the confrontation in the town of Cashion last month. “I don’t think that I deserve to pay $ 80 for something that is fixable and I can fix it,” Ms Hamil is heard telling the officer after he issues her a ticket for a broken tail light.After being asked to step out of her pick-up truck, she repeatedly refuses and eventually drives away, prompting a brief pursuit. After pulling over in a car park, the officer approaches her with his gun pulled and drags her out of the vehicle when she again refuses to step out.Following a brief struggle in which Ms Hamil kicks out, the officer fires his stun gun at her and places her under arrest. "Do you realise you just got yourself in a whole lot more trouble?" the officer says.Ms Hamil replies: "Yeah, I tried to kick you because I'm a country girl.” Local media reported Ms Hamil was taken to hospital for a medical assessment despite refusing treatment. She was subsequently charged with one count of assault against a police officer and one misdemeanour for resisting arrest.
