President Barack Obama said Tuesday, the United States is preparing to boost its military presence in Europe and at a cost of up to $1 billion, as tensions in the region simmer over Russia's aggressive actions in Ukraine. Standing with Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski, Obama said the U.S. plans to send more military equipment and rotate additional American troops into the region. He called on lawmakers in Washington to provide the funding to sustain the effort. Obama's announcement marks a significant departure from a two-decade trend toward a smaller U.S. military presence in Europe amid a shift by the Obama administration to a more visible and active naval and air power presence in the Asia-Pacific region.
Just days after Jeb Bush downplayed the need for stricter gun control following the tragic Oregon shooting by stating "Stuff happens," Donald Trump also made some questionable comments regarding Second Amendment rights during a rally Saturday in Nashville. Trump said. The real estate mogul also criticized the "gun-free zone" at Roseburg, Oregon's Umpqua Community College, saying the slaying that left 10 people dead including the shooter could have been avoided if instructors and even students were armed, The Guardian writes. "It's not politically correct to say that, but you're going to have difficulty, and that will be for the next million years, there's going to be difficulty and people are going to slip through the cracks," Trump said. "I have a license to carry in New York, can you believe that?" Trump said. "Somebody attacks me, they're gonna be shocked." The Republican frontrunner then proclaimed his love of the 1974 vigilante film Death Wish, which stars Charles Bronson as an architect hell-bent on avenging the murder of his wife. "Today you can't make that movie because it's not politically correct."
CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — Flooding from days of record-setting rain along the heavily populated East Coast washed out bridges and homes, and forecasters warned wind gusts topping 35 mph could down trees and power lines across the Carolinas and Virginia in the coming hours. At least five weather-related deaths have been reported since rains began spreading over the Eastern Seaboard, which has appeared to dodge the full fury of Hurricane Joaquin churning hundreds of miles out in the Atlantic. President Barack Obama declared a state of emergency in South Carolina and ordered federal aid to bolster state and local efforts as flood warnings remained in effect for many parts of the East Coast through Sunday.
Persistent torrential rainfall in South Carolina caused major flooding on Sunday, turning some suburbs of the city of Charleston into lakes and forcing hundreds of rescues across the state. Charleston Mayor Joe Riley, who is in his 40th and last year as mayor, told reporters on Sunday morning, "This is record. There's never been a rainfall like this in the city's history," The National Weather Service said, overnight rains flooded highways along the South Carolina coast between Charleston and Georgetown.
Carly Fiorina has emerged as the Republican candidate of the moment in conservative fundraising circles, drawing the notice of the billionaire Koch brothers and other wealthy donors who could instantly remake her shoestring presidential campaign. Fiorina’s show-stealing performance in the second Republican presidential debate last month, and her subsequent surge in the polls, has prompted industrialists Charles and David Koch to take a “serious look” at the former Hewlett-Packard chief executive, according to three sources close to the brothers. She has now moved to the short list of candidates the Kochs may support with their reported $1bn war chest, the sources said, adding that Florida senator Marco Rubio is among those on the coveted list.
