The American Civil Liberties Union is condemning the threats that forced Ann Coulter to cancel her speech at the University of California, Berkeley. “The unacceptable threats of violence that have led to the ‘hecklers’ veto’ of Ann Coulter’s speech at Berkeley are inconsistent with free speech principles that protect us all from government overreach,” David Cole, the ACLU’s national legal director, said in a statement Wednesday after Coulter canceled her appearance, which had been scheduled for Thursday. “Hateful speech has consequences, particularly for people of color, LGBTQ people, immigrants, and others who have been historically marginalized,” Cole continued.
White House press secretary Sean Spicer attempted Thursday to shift blame to the Obama administration for its role in vetting retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, the national security adviser dismissed by President Trump. Spicer argued that the Trump transition team didn’t vet Flynn’s appointment because he already held a security clearance at the time. “My only point is that when Gen. Flynn came into the White House, he had an active security clearance that was issued during the Obama administration with all the information that’s being discussed that occurred in 2015,” Spicer said at the daily press briefing.

By Alexandra Ulmer CARACAS (Reuters) - The son of Venezuela's pro-government human rights ombudsman has surprised the country amid major protests against the leftist administration by publicly urging his father to "end the injustice." The opposition has accused ombudsman Tarek Saab, whose title is "defender of the people," of turning a blind eye to human rights abuses and a lurch into dictatorship by Venezuela's unpopular President Nicolas Maduro. In many of the vast street protests in Caracas in recent days, marchers aimed to converge on his office, but security forces firing tear gas and water cannons blocked the crowds.

Eleven current and former Fox News employees have filed a lawsuit alleging that Fox employees engaged in “abhorrent, intolerable, unlawful and hostile racial discrimination” and created a workplace “more akin to Plantation-style management than a modern-day work environment". The case, which started with two former payroll employees, made headlines this week with the addition of former Fox and Friends co-host Kelly Williams.

Syria's military said Israel struck a military installation southwest of Damascus International Airport before dawn Thursday, setting off a series of explosions and raising tensions further between the two neighbors. Apparently seeking to interrupt weapons transfers to the Hezbollah group in Lebanon, Israel has struck inside Syria with increasing frequency in recent weeks, making the war-torn country a proxy theater for Israel's wider war with Iran. The increasing tempo of attacks risks inflaming a highly combustible situation drawing in Israel, Syria and the Iranian-backed Hezbollah, a staunch ally of President Bashar Assad's government with thousands of fighters in Syria.
Until recently, it seemed that we would be able to manage global warming-induced sea level rise through the end of the century. This has scientists increasingly worried that the consensus sea level rise estimates are too conservative. With sea level rise, as with other climate impacts, the uncertainties tend to skew toward the more severe end of the scale.
