Adolf Hitler thought he was going to win. The Nazis didn’t just take battle plans and explosives into World War II; they had plans for a whole new world order. When the fighting and the bloodshed were done, they were going to build a new fascist empire over the ruins of Europe. The Nazis already had already written up the blueprints for their new order.

A mere 24 hours after his latest attempt at a campaign reset with an economic policy speech, Donald Trump made an offhand comment related to gun rights that immediately had listeners wondering if he had called for the assassination of his rival, Democrat Hillary Clinton. Speaking at a rally in Wilmington, North Carolina, on Tuesday, Trump promised to defend the Second Amendment as president, and claimed, as he often does, that Clinton wants to take away Americans' guns. "Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don't know," he said. "But I'll tell you what, that will be a horrible day. If, if Hillary gets to put her judges - right now we're tied. You see what's going on. We're
Ten US sailors were missing after a US destroyer collided with a merchant vessel in southeast Asia, the second serious accident involving American Navy ships in the region in little more than two months. Search and rescue efforts were launched after the USS John S McCain was involved in a collision with the Alnic MC east of Singapore and the Strait of Malacca, the US 7th Fleet said in a statement. The collision with the tanker happened at 5.24am local time as the guided-missile destroyer was heading to Singapore for a routine visit. "There are currently 10 Sailors missing and five injured," the Japan-based 7th Fleet said. In addition to US Navy aircraft, Singaporean ships, helicopters and tug boats were in the area to help conduct search and rescue efforts after the warship suffered damage the port side aft, it said.

The destroyer was currently sailing under its own power and heading to port. Senator John McCain, a war hero who is now being treated for brain cancer, tweeted: "Cindy & I are keeping America's sailors aboard the USS John S McCain in our prayers tonight - appreciate the work of search & rescue crews." The vessel was named in honour of the senator's grandfather and father, who were US admirals. Based at the fleet's homeport of Yokosuka, Japan, the USS John S McCain has a crew of 23 officers, 24 chief petty officers and 291 enlisted sailors, according the Navy's website. The USS John S. McCain is a guided missile destroyer Credit: AP The ship it hit, the Liberian-flagged Alnic MC, is a 183 metre long chemical or oil tanker with a deadweight of more than 50,000 tonnes, according to the Marine Traffic website. Shipping data showed it last sent a transponder signal at 2258 GMT on Sunday and has since come to a halt 6-12 miles off the east coast of the Pengerang peninsula in Johor, southern Malaysia. The ship data showed it was "ballasting", meaning that it was not loaded full of oil for cargo. A family assistance centre has been established to help family members of sailors on board the USS McCain. #USSJohnSMcCain: Family Assistance Center established for family members.

The accident comes two months after seven US sailors died when a US destroyer collided with a merchant ship off the Japanese coast. The Fitzgerald's captain was relieved of command and other sailors would be punished after the Navy found poor seamanship and flaws in keeping watch contributed to the collision, the Navy announced last week. An investigation into how and why the Fitzgerald collided with the other ship was not finished, but enough details were known to take those actions, the Navy said. Seven missing sailors found dead onboard USS Fitzgerald 01:05 The USS Fitzgerald and USS John S. McCain are both ballistic missile defence (BMD) capable ships and part of the same Japan-based destroyer squadron. The Seventh Fleet has six ships assigned to BMD patrols, with half of those out on patrol at any one time. Asked whether the US Navy would need to bring forward other ships to maintain its strength, a spokesman for the Seventh Fleet told Reuters it was "way too early to know". More to come.
