One of the founding members of the House Freedom Caucus has resigned in protest of the hard-line conservative group’s opposition to the Republican bill to repeal and replace Obamacare. Rep. Ted Poe, R-Texas, said that both President Trump and House Speaker Paul Ryan reached out to the caucus and made changes to the GOP health care proposal several times. “No matter what changes were made, the goalposts kept getting moved,” Poe said on “Fox & Friends” on Monday.

Jeb Bush says President Trump’s evidence-free claims are kneecapping his first 100 days in the White House. “He should stop saying things that aren’t true, that are distractions from the task at hand,” Bush said in an interview that aired Sunday on Miami’s WFOR-TV. During the bruising campaign, Bush was a prominent critic of Trump — who in turn relentlessly mocked the former Florida governor.

The year 2017 has already seen the launch of LG's high-end flagship, the G6, the Samsung Galaxy S8 launches Wednesday and the iPhone 8 is expected to launch in the fall. Two other flagships, equally worthy of attention, are expected launch later in the year — Samsung’s foldable device, the Samsung Galaxy X, and Google’s Pixel successor, the Pixel 2. While Google confirmed March 3 that a Pixel 2 device is in the works, the existence of a Samsung Galaxy X is largely supported by rumors and Samsung’s recent patents.
The tense Donald Trump-Angela Merkel meeting this month may have been even tenser behind the scenes. Not because of awkward attempts to rebuff a handshake, or poorly-fashioned surveillance jokes, but because of a fake invoice for NATO payments. German officials told the Sunday Times the U.S. President handed the German Chancellor a “bill” reportedly amounting to over $376 billion to reflect Germany’s shortfall in defense spending since 2002 as a NATO alliance member.

By Tom Westbrook SYDNEY (Reuters) - Thousands of Australians fled their homes on Monday as a powerful cyclone bore down on coastal towns in Queensland, where authorities urged 30,000 people to evacuate low lying areas most at risk from tidal surges and winds of up to 300 km per hour (185 mph). Cyclone Debbie is expected to gather strength before making landfall in the northeast state early on Tuesday, with the Australian Bureau of Meteorology forecasting a category four storm, just one rung below the most dangerous wind speed level. The growing alarm persuaded the state government on Monday to warn some 25,000 people living in parts of Mackay, a city 950 kilometers (590 miles) north of the state capital Brisbane, to head south to higher ground.

Official results showed GERB will hold 95 of 240 parliamentary seats -- 11 more than in the outgoing administration. The burly Borisov, a former firefighter and bodyguard, saw off a stiff challenge from the Moscow-friendly Socialist Party (BSP), which garnered 27 percent and more than doubled their MPs to 80.
Choosing where to buy a new iPhone isn’t as simple as it might seem. Third-party stores or carriers might give you a better monetary deal than buying an iPhone from the Apple Store, but you’re also going to have to deal with yearly contracts, bill credits, or the hassle of unlocking the device if you switch networks. As of right now, if you buy an iPhone on T-Mobile and opt for extra device insurance, you’ll also get AppleCare included in the price.
American military commanders are conducting multiple investigations into a series of airstrikes in Iraq and Syria over the past two weeks that allegedly caused dozens – if not hundreds – of civilian casualties. The rash of new reports of civilian deaths in the U.S.-led air war on the Islamic State comes at a time of intensifying air strikes as the battle for Mosul rages, and U.S.-backed militias move closer to Raqqa to assault the Islamic State’s de facto capital. The largest of the strikes occurred on March 17 in Mosul, Iraq, where Iraqi forces battling ISIS militants in the densely-packed western half of the city called in a strike on what they had identified as an ISIS position.
