WASHINGTON — Sarah Huckabee Sanders does not want you to read this story. When Yahoo News asked the White House’s principal deputy press secretary if she was willing to be interviewed for an article about her life and increasingly high-profile role in the administration of President Trump, she declined and said she’d prefer it wasn’t written at all. Any profile should be on him,” Sanders said.
Of the 3,800 residents of El Cenizo, about 20 percent are undocumented. The town made national headlines this month when its mayor filed a lawsuit against the state to block a new law that bans so-called “sanctuary cities.”

Police say an Aeromexico plane taxiing toward a gate at Los Angeles International Airport was crossing a service road when it struck a supply truck, causing the vehicle to overturn and resulting in eight injuries. Airport police Officer Rob Pedregon says the right wing of the Boeing 737 "acted like a hook," lifting the rear top of the high-profile truck and causing it to tip over. The city Fire Department says two people in the truck were seriously injured and six others had minor injuries.
Dr. Roland Yearwood was nearing the peak of Mount Everest when he died Sunday in the so-called "death zone" where air becomes perilously thin. The first time, Yearwood managed to skirt tragedy when he lived through an avalanche that killed 18 there in 2015. It is not clear if Yearwood fulfilled his dream of reaching the Everest summit before he died.
Conspiracy theories surrounding Democratic National Committee (DNC) staffer Seth Rich's death July last year re-emerged over the weekend after hacker Kim Dotcom said the former was Wikileaks source. In his tweets, Dotcom offered to give Congress "written testimony with evidence that Seth Rich was Wikileaks source" — if Congress agrees to include the Seth Rich case in their Russia probe. Rich, who worked as a voter expansion data director at the DNC, was shot twice in the back while walking home in Bloomingdale neighborhood of Northwest Washington, D.C., last year.

Arriving from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on Monday, the president also said he saw a growing consensus among Muslim-majority nations that they share a “common cause” with Israel in fighting both Islamic extremism and Iranian influence. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and dozens more members of the coalition government greeted Mr Trump in a short ceremony as Air Force One landed at Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion airport at lunchtime on Monday. A helicopter then delivered the visiting president to Jerusalem, where he met with President Reuven Rivlin, visiting both the Western Wall – Judaism's holiest site – and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, believed to be where Jesus's tomb is located.
Theunis Botha, a trophy hunter, died Friday in Zimbabwe.
President Donald Trump's trip to Saudi Arabia over the weekend went largely as planned. Last, but not least, he touched The Orb. The Orb, of course, has existed long before the United States and even the concept of democracy, government, or even society.
“We are, forevermore, the Greatest Show on Earth,” boomed Johnathan Lee Iverson, who has been the ringmaster since 1999. It was an emotional 2 1/2 hours for those who worked on the circus. Many of Ringling’s employees are second, third and even fourth-generation circus performers, while others met their spouses while touring.
Beijing systematically dismantled CIA spying efforts in China beginning in 2010, killing or jailing more than a dozen covert sources, in a deep setback to US intelligence there, The New York Times reported Sunday. The Times, quoting 10 current and former American officials who spoke on condition of anonymity, described the intelligence breach as one of the worst in decades. It said that even now intelligence officials are unsure whether the US was betrayed by a mole within the CIA or whether the Chinese hacked a covert system used by the CIA to communicate with foreign sources.
A man told police he killed his two roommates because they were neo-Nazis who disrespected his recent conversion to Islam, and investigators found bomb-making materials and Nazi propaganda after he led them to the bodies. Devon Arthurs, 18, told police he had until recently shared his roommates' neo-Nazi beliefs, but that he converted to Islam, according to court documents and a statement the Tampa Police Department released Monday.
As a little girl sat by the edge of a dock in Steveston, Canada, Saturday, a sea lion suddenly snatched her and dragged her into the water. The little girl was very close to the edge as the sea lion lunged playfully at her. “When I saw the grandfather jump in to save the girl, I immediately thought, ‘Okay, now I have to help them.’ I pulled the girl in first,” he said.
This article originally appeared on the Motley Fool. More and more often, American defense contractors are finding some of their biggest defense markets lie halfway around the world, in the Middle East. The UAE, you see -- already a big fan of the Patriot air defense system manufactured by Raytheon (NYSE:RTN) and Lockheed Martin (NYSE:LMT) -- is making a $2 billion investment to upgrade its arsenal.
Egyptian authorities say they caught looters digging up an ancient stone block carved with an image of a pharaoh. In the city of Abydos, antiquities authorities say they were inspecting an old two-story, mud-brick house when they found that the owner had excavated a hole in the floor.

By Bozorgmehr Sharafedin LONDON (Reuters) - Iranian hardliners indignant at President Hassan Rouhani's re-election vowed on Sunday to press their conservative agenda, with some saying his caustic campaign trail attacks on their candidate would bring a backlash. Rouhani won decisively with 57 percent of the vote on Friday, with promises of more engagement with the outside world, more economic opportunities for Iran’s youth, as well as social justice, individual freedoms and political tolerance. The president, known for decades as a conciliatory figure, remade himself on the campaign trail as a reformist political street fighter, accusing hardliners of brutality and corruption in language that frequently strained at the boundaries of what is permitted in Iran.
Frankly, after driving the car with the 316 horsepower twin-charged powertrain (T6), I don't see a flaw in their plan. Volvo was careful not to use the word "smaller" in any case, but frankly, the XC60 is a five-seater, not a luxury people hauler for seven. Design chief Thomas Ingenlath told me the 60 series (which Volvo internally calls the "60 cluster") are more about the sculpture and the muscle fully modeled out of the available volume, with a look that still feels natural.
Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has accused opposition protesters of setting a pro-government supporter on fire on the 50th day of the wave of protests, which has gripped the country. Footage of the man being set alight was broadcasted on state television and the man, identified as Orlando Figuera, 21, has been treated in hospital for severe burns and several stab wounds. According to reports, about 100 people, who were participating in anti-Maduro protests in Caracas, surrounded Mr Figuera, doused him in gasoline and set him alight in Plaza Altamira in the east of the country’s capital.
Even for non-aficionados, Shelby revealing a new wide-body Super Snake version of the current Mustang probably wouldn't come as too much of a surprise. After all, Shelby is wholly synonymous with the legendary Mustang. However, that model is merely a
It was just a coincidence, but a telling one, that Roger Ailes died on May 18 just as the television powerhouse that he created, the Fox News Channel, was propagating a conspiracy theory involving a Democratic National Committee staffer named Seth Rich, whose murder in Washington, D.C., last summer remains unsolved. If you don’t watch Fox News, read Breitbart or the Drudge Report, or listen to Rush Limbaugh, you likely don’t have any idea who Seth Rich was. If, however, you are a devotee of those dubious news sources, you have been fed a grab bag of unsubstantiated allegations designed to make you think that Rich was murdered by some kind of Democratic Party cabal for having revealed the party’s secrets to WikiLeaks.
Authorities said they have found the body of a Duke University student who had been missing for nearly a week.
Stefanie Fry had finished her lunch break at home and was getting ready to drive back to work in February when she saw two people run by in her rearview mirror. When she turned around, she saw a white police officer slam a black man to the ground, yelling at the man to stop and put his hands up. The officer tried to kick the gun away, Fry told investigators, but the man grabbed the gun and ran again.
A mother of two children who sought sanctuary at a Quaker meeting house in Denver to avoid U.S. immigration authorities has been granted a temporary stay from deportation.
