Iraqi Parliament Elects Kurdish Moderate Barham Salih As New President – Deutsche Welle
.

.
Iraq’s parliament on Tuesday elected a new president despite a bitter dispute between the two main Kurdish parties, who for the first time put forward competing candidates. In Iraq, a Kurd holds the presidency – which is a largely ceremonial role – while the prime minister post is reserved for a Shiite and the speaker of parliament a Sunni.

In Baghdad, parliament voted for Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) candidate Barham Salih, who previously served as the prime minister of the autonomous Kurdistan region and deputy prime minister of Iraq. Salih is considered a moderate, non-sectarian reformer with good ties with the West and neighboring Iran and Turkey.

Born in Sulaimani in the Kurdish region, the 58-year-old speaks fluent English, Kurdish and Arabic…

Christine Blasey Ford’s Friend Leland Keyser Meets With FBI, Doesn’t Back Her Story About Kavanaugh – Washington Times

Leland Keyser, the high school friend Christine Blasey Ford counted on to corroborate her sexual assault charges, has told the FBI she has no knowledge of the supposed 1982 party or the accused, Brett Kavanaugh.

Howard J. Walsh III, her attorney, told The Washington Times that she met with the FBI on Saturday. Asked if she had repeated the same two statements she provided the Senate Judiciary Committee, the lawyer answered, “yes.”

Ms. Ford accuses Supreme Court nominee Judge Kavanaugh, and his friend, Mark Judge, of trying to rape her at a home in Montgomery County near the Columbia Country Club. They both deny the charge. Patrick Smyth, a third party-goer identified by Ms. Ford, also denies he attended any such party.

That left Ms. Keyser, Ms. Ford’s best friend at Holton-Arms school, as the remaining witness of the five people who supposedly attended…

Winning: Private Payrolls Soar By 230,000 In September – Breitbart
.

.
Job growth exploded higher in September, according to a report released Wednesday by ADP and Moody’s Analytics. Private companies added 230,000 more positions for the month, far more than the 185,000 forecast by economists. In August, companies added 168,000, revised up 5,000 from an earlier estimate.

On Tuesday, Amazon announced that it was raising its minimum wage to $15 an hour. Companies raise wages when demand is high and they need to compete with each other to hire or retain workers.

The private payroll figure comes two days ahead of the government’s report for jobs in September. Economists expect the economy added 185,000 jobs last month…

Christine Blasey Ford’s Long-Time Former Boyfriend Submits Letter To Judiciary Committee Contradicting Her Sworn Testimony On Several Counts – Fox News

In a written declaration released Tuesday and obtained by Fox News, an ex-boyfriend of Christine Blasey Ford, the California professor accusing Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, directly contradicts her testimony under oath last week that she had never helped anyone prepare for a polygraph examination.

The former boyfriend, whose name was redacted in the declaration, also said Ford neither mentioned Kavanaugh nor mentioned she was a victim of sexual misconduct during the time they were dating from about 1992 to 1998.

He said he saw Ford going to great lengths to help a woman he believed was her “life-long best friend” prepare for a potential polygraph test. He added that the woman, Monica McLean, had been interviewing for jobs with the FBI and U.S. Attorney’s office.

He further claimed that Ford never voiced any fear of flying (even while aboard a propeller plane) and seemingly had no problem living in a “very small,” 500 sq. ft. apartment with one door…

The Trump administration admitted a total of 22,491 refugees into the United States during fiscal year 2018 – by a sizeable margin the lowest number in the history of the 38-year-old modern refugee resettlement program.

The next smallest number of refugees resettled since passage of the Refugee Act in 1980 was 27,131 in FY 2002, the financial year that began just weeks after the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

A majority of the 22,491 refugees admitted in FY 2018 – 16,023, or 71.2 percent – were Christians of various denominations, including Catholics, Baptists, Pentecostalists and evangelicals.

Muslims, including Sunnis, Shi’ites and Ahmadis, accounted for 3,495, or 15.5 percent of the total, while the remainder included 1,139 Buddhists (5.0 percent), 672 Hindus (2.9 percent), 425 Kiratis (1.8 percent), 119 Jews (0.5 percent) and smaller numbers of Yazidis, Baha’i, animists, atheists and others…

Report: FBI To Complete Kavanaugh Inquiry Wednesday With Vote Coming This Week – True Pundit

The F.B.I. is expected to complete its investigation into allegations of sexual assault against Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh and deliver the results to the Senate as early as Wednesday, and Republican leaders said Tuesday that they expect to vote on the nomination this week.

“We’ll have an F.B.I. report this week, and we’ll have a vote this week,” Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the majority leader, told reporters after the Republicans’ weekly policy luncheon on Tuesday. But Mr. McConnell would not say whether that would be a final vote, or a procedural vote allowing the Senate to begin debate.

Once the investigation is completed, the F.B.I. will send reports about its interviews to the Senate, where members will have a chance to review them. Several Republicans – including Senator John Cornyn of Texas, the No. 2 Republican – said Tuesday that they would like to see the findings made public in some form.

“People are not going to be satisfied until some public statement about what the F.B.I. supplemental background investigation shows,” Mr. Cornyn said…

364 Guns Stolen From Memphis UPS Facility Intercepted On Way To Chicago – WREG

Approximately 364 of the guns stolen from an UPS facility in Memphis have been recovered en route to Chicago.

Federal ATF agents are still looking for one of the suspects, 24-year-old Roland Jackson, and offered a reward up to $5,000 for information leading to his arrest and conviction. Taveyan Turnbo, 18, is in custody.

According to a federal criminal complaint, the UPS facility received a shipment from the Ruger factory in North Carolina on Sept. 28. The 16 pallets of firearms were scheduled to leave two days later for Dallas, Texas.

Before they could be shipped, two men entered the Brooks Road facility in Memphis, loaded three pallets into a U-Haul van and sped away.

Authorities said there were roughly 367 guns in those pallets. All of the weapons were either .22 caliber or .380 caliber firearms, authorities said…

Scientists have discovered yet another marker on the trail toward the putative Planet Nine.

That clue is 2015 TG387, a newfound object in the far outer solar system, way beyond Pluto. The orbit of 2015 TG387 shares peculiarities with those of other extremely far-flung bodies, which appear to have been shaped by the gravity of a very large object in that distant, frigid realm – the hypothesized Planet Nine, also known as Planet X.

Secretary Of State Pompeo To Meet With Kim Jong Un On Sunday – The Hill

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is set to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un next week as part of his upcoming trip to Asia, the State Department announced on Tuesday.

State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said Pompeo will meet with Kim in Pyongyang on Oct. 7. Nauert didn’t provide specific details of what Pompeo plans to discuss with the North Korean leader, but she said the meeting will focus on Pyongyang’s nuclear capabilities.

Pompeo and Kim will also likely discuss a second summit between Kim and President Trump, which the White House said was in the works earlier last month.

“After being spurned over, and over, and over again, short-changed on healthcare, short-changed on criminal justice, short-changed on education, there’s a lot of folks who don’t want to believe anymore,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “And that’s why what we have accomplished is such an immense responsibility. It is a responsibility.”

Trump Pushing International Inspectors To Investigate Secret Iran Nuclear Sites – Washington Free Beacon

The Trump administration is pushing international nuclear inspectors to launch a new investigation into evidence Iran has been stockpiling nuclear weapons technology and materials at a secret undisclosed site, according to U.S. officials who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon.

Evidence of this previously unknown nuclear site was presented last week by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during an address before the United Nations General Assembly.

The disclosure sent shockwaves through the international community and prompted the Trump administration to push for a renewed investigation into the claims by the IAEA, or International Atomic Energy Agency, the U.N. body tasked with performing oversight on the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program.

The United States is expected to spearhead efforts to further expose what Netanyahu described as a massive atomic warehouse in Iran…

Nearly 100 students at the University of Southern California attended a rally at noon on Monday demanding a tenured professor be fired after he sent a reply-all email last Thursday to the student body noting that “accusers sometimes lie.”

“If the day comes you are accused of some crime or tort of which you are not guilty, and you find your peers automatically believing your accuser, I expect you find yourself a stronger proponent of due process than you are now,” emailed Professor James Moore.

Online Sales Taxes Take Effect In 10 States – Fox Business

New taxes on e-commerce sales went into effect Monday in 10 states, making online shopping a little more costly for many consumers.

A Supreme Court ruling in June gave states the green light to impose sales taxes on e-commerce companies, even if they don’t have stores or warehouses within the state’s borders. The case, South Dakota vs. Wayfair, made it likely that consumers would pay more for online purchases from out-of-state retailers.

Several states, including Hawaii, Tennessee and Vermont, began collecting online sales taxes in July, according to the Tax Foundation Opens a New Window. Mississippi’s taxes took effect in September.

On Oct. 1, online sales taxes arrived in 10 more states: Alabama, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, North Dakota, Washington and Wisconsin. Colorado announced last month that it will begin requiring e-commerce businesses to collect sales taxes on Nov. 1…

Uranium One: FBI Refuses To Release Three-Dozen Secret Memos Involving Clintons, Russia And Obama – Zero Hedge

The FBI has refused to declassify 37 pages of materials related to the Uranium One deal, citing national security and the privacy issues, reports The Hill’s John Solomon.

The documents are thought to contain information regarding then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s involvement, as well as the Obama administration’s knowledge of the controversial deal.

The existence of the documents became known after a recent Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) release of related material contained an entry entitled “Uranium One Transaction.”

The publicly available portion includes benign material, such as public letters from members of Congress who demanded information on the Uranium One approval.

Perhaps the FBI’s unexpected “release” – and I use that word loosely, since they gave up no public information of importance – in the FOIA vault was a warning flare designed to remind America there might be evidence worth looking at…

Lindsey Graham: If Kavanaugh Vote Fails, Trump Should Re-Nominate Him Before Midterms, ‘Appeal The Case To The American People’ – Fox News

Even if the nomination of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh ultimately fails in the Senate, President Trump should re-nominate the judge ahead of the midterm elections and let the voters decide if they want him on the court, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., told Fox News on Monday night.

“Here’s what I would tell the president: I would appeal the verdict of the Senate to the ballot box,” Graham said on “Hannity.”

“This good man should not be destroyed. If you legitimize this process by one vote short, we’ll be on to the next person. I’d hate to be the next person nominated. I would feel horrible that we destroyed Kavanaugh.

“So what would I do? I would re-nominate him and I would take this case to the American people and I’d ask voters in Indiana, in Missouri, in North Dakota and other places where Trump won – saying who he would nominate if he got to be president – and see if the voters want to appeal the verdict of their senator.”…
