South Carolina Senate Backs Bill To Remove Confederate Flag From Statehouse Grounds
South Carolina Senate Backs Bill To Remove Confederate Flag From Statehouse Grounds
July 7, 2015

South Carolina lawmakers took a major step on Monday toward passing legislation to remove the Confederate battle flag that flies at the state capitol in Columbia and has long been denounced by critics as a symbol of slavery.

The bill passed a crucial second reading by a 37-3 vote in the state Senate where it faces one more vote on Tuesday before the bill is taken up by the lower House of Representatives.

The political discussion comes after numerous elected officials, including Republican Governor Nikki Haley, called for the flag's removal after the June 17 massacre of nine African-American churchgoers at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal church in Charleston.

Officials: US jets scramble to intercept Russian bombers off California, Alaska coasts on July 4
Officials: US jets scramble to intercept Russian bombers off California, Alaska coasts on July 4
July 7, 2015

While the United States celebrated Independence Day, two pairs of Russian bombers flew off the coast of California and Alaska -- forcing the Air Force to scramble fighter jets to intercept both flights, two senior defense officials tell Fox News.

The first incident occurred at 10:30 a.m. ET on July 4 off the coast of Alaska, Fox News is told. Two U.S. Air Force F-22 jets were scrambled from their base in Alaska to intercept two Tupolev Tu-95 long-range strategic bombers, capable of carrying nuclear weapons.

The second incident occurred at 11:00 a.m. ET also on July 4, off the central coast of California. Two F-15s from an undisclosed location were scrambled to intercept another pair of Tu-95 Bear bombers.

A spokesman for NORAD would not confirm if either pair of bombers was armed.

At no time did either pair of bombers enter U.S. airspace, 12 nautical miles off the coast, according to one defense official. Neither official would reveal just how close the bombers came to U.S. shores.

At the same time the bombers were in the air probing the West Coast of the United States, Russian President Vladimir Putin called President Obama to wish him a happy July 4th.

"These are not unprecedented flights, but we are postured to respond whether Alaska or California," NORAD spokesman Michael Kucharek said. "At no time did the bombers enter North American sovereign airspace."

A similar incident took place on July 4, 2013.

Bill Cosby said in 2005 that he got sedative to give women for sex
Bill Cosby said in 2005 that he got sedative to give women for sex
July 7, 2015

Bill Cosby admitted under oath that he got a sort of sedative for the purpose of giving the drug to young women with whom he wanted to have sex, newly released documents show.

The documents date back to 2005, and they stem from a lawsuit filed by one of the many women who have publicly accused the comedian of sexual assault. The records were made public Monday after The Associated Press went to court to compel their release.

According to the documents, Cosby was asked by attorney Dolores Troiani: "When you got the quaaludes, was it in your mind that you were going to use these quaaludes for young women that you wanted to have sex with?"

Cosby answered yes.

Embattled Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis resigns
Embattled Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis resigns
July 6, 2015

Yanis Varoufakis, Greece's embattled finance minister, has resigned his post, saying the move could help Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras reach an agreement with creditors.

"I was made aware of a certain preference by some Eurogroup participants, and assorted 'partners', for my ... 'absence' from its meetings; an idea that the Prime Minister judged to be potentially helpful to him in reaching an agreement," Varoufakis wrote in a blog post early Monday.

"For this reason I am leaving the Ministry of Finance today," he continued. "I shall wear the creditors' loathing with pride."

Greece's Ministry of Finance confirmed his departure in a separate statement.

During his time in government, Varoufakis refused to adopt the mannerisms of a conventional European politician. Instead, he dressed informally and loudly. He frequently appeared in media, launching biting rhetorical attacks against rival negotiators and governments.

While it may have appealed to populists, critics said his style failed to win many fans in the negotiating room.

The resignation comes just hours after Greece voted on against Europe's latest bailout offer, raising the prospect that the country could now suffer a worse economic disaster and lose its place in the euro.

More than 60% heeded left-wing Tsipras' call to vote "no." He hopes to force Europe to hand over more money with less austerity attached, and cancel some of Greece's enormous debt.

Thousands of Greeks celebrated in the streets of Athens after the vote on Sunday. But the result sets Greece on an uncertain path that could force it to abandon the euro and print its own currency -- with huge damage to the economy.

Women's World Cup: U.S. defeats Japan, 5-2, wins tournament for first time since 1999
Women's World Cup: U.S. defeats Japan, 5-2, wins tournament for first time since 1999
July 6, 2015

In a remarkable contest, the U.S. defeated Japan, 5-2, to win its first World Cup since 1999. It was sweet revenge for the USWNT, which lost Japan in the 2011 final on penalty kicks, and Abby Wambach was able to cap her career with the one major title that had eluded her.

Carli Lloyd notched a hat trick just 16 minutes into the game, and her final goal - an eye-popping strike from midfield - actually gave the U.S. a 4-0 lead, because Lauren Holiday had added her own tally in the 14th minute. Japan fight back and made the score 4-2 shortly into the second half, but Tobin Heath iced things with a goal in the 54th minute, giving U.S. Coach Jill Ellis plenty of time to think about who to send into the game, and when, in order to properly savor the victory.

Final match statistics from FIFA had Japan with an edge in possession percentage, 52-48, plus free kicks, 15-12, but there was no doubt which was the better side. The U.S. jumped all over the defending champs, winding up with advantages in shots (15-12), on-target shots (7-4) and corners (7-3).

The U.S. became the first team to win three women's World Cups. Hope Solo won the tournament's Golden Glove award for her stellar goalkeeping efforts, and Carli Lloyd won the Golden Ball after tying Germany's Celia Sacic for the overall lead in goals at six, with all six coming in the knockout rounds, three in the final. Lloyd became the first American to win the Golden Ball since Carin Jennings in 1991, the inaugural year of the tournament.

Donald Trump Deserted By Partners as Immigrant Furor Grows
Donald Trump Deserted By Partners as Immigrant Furor Grows
July 3, 2015

More partners of Donald Trump have distanced themselves from the billionaire, as he doubled down on remarks Wednesday about Mexican immigrants being "rapists" during an interview on CNN Tonight with Don Lemon.

New York City has vowed to review its contracts, which include an ice-skating rink and golf course, with the mogul while four leading golf organizations distanced themselves from him. "Donald Trump's remarks were disgusting and offensive, and this hateful language has no place in our city," said the city's mayor, Bill de Blasio, in a statement on Wednesday.

Trump had said in an interview with the Golf Channel that the golfing world was in agreement with him on immigration. But the PGA Tour, LPGA Tour, USGA and PGA of America issued a joint statement to counter that assumption. "In response to Mr. Trump's comments about the golf industry 'knowing he is right' in regards to his recent statements about Mexican immigrants, we feel compelled to clarify that those remarks do not reflect the views of our organizations," it said.

The billionaire first stirred up controversy in a speech last week where he described undocumented Mexicans as "rapists" and "killers". The fall-out from his comments saw major business partners like Macy's, Univision and Comcast's NBCUniversal sever ties with him.

Trump seemed unwilling to back down from his remarks Wednesday evening, telling CNN's Don Lemon in an interview that the statistics about immigration were "mind-boggling."

"It's unbelievable when you look at what's going on. So all I'm doing is telling the truth," Trump said. He has also sued the Spanish-language network, Univision, for $500 million when it cut ties with his Miss USA Pageant.

Top ISIS Leader Killed by US Drone Strike in Syria
Top ISIS Leader Killed by US Drone Strike in Syria
July 3, 2015

A U.S. drone strike has killed a top ISIS leader in charge of the terror group's foreign fighter operations and moving people and supplies into Syria and Iraq.

The Pentagon confirmed Thursday that Tariq bin Tahar-Al-Awni-al-Harzi was killed in an airstrike in Syria on June 16, the day after his brother Ali was killed in another drone strike in Mosul, Iraq.

Ali bin Tahar-Al Awni-al Harzi was not only a top ISIS leader himself, but also a person of interest in the deadly 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

"His death will impact ISIL's ability to integrate foreign terrorist fighters into the Syrian and Iraqi fight as well as to move people and equipment across the border between Syria and Iraq," said Pentagon spokesman Capt. Jeff Davis in a statement. ISIL is another name used to describe ISIS.

A U.S. official told ABC News that the Tunisian al-Harzi was killed by a U.S. military drone strike.
