Megyn Kelly recalls a tense encounter with Charlie Rose, the broadcaster who has been accused of sexual misconduct by eight women.'The only way forward' for women in the future »
President Trump announced Monday that his administration is putting North Korea back on a U.S. list of state sponsors of terrorism, a mostly symbolic blow meant to deepen the diplomatic isolation of Kim Jong Un’s regime in Pyongyang. Speaking to reporters as he opened a meeting with his Cabinet, Trump said the designation would trigger “further sanctions and penalties” and that it “supports our maximum pressure campaign to isolate the murderous regime.” The president added that the Treasury Department on Tuesday would announce additional punitive measures, part of a campaign “over the next two weeks” to tighten the economic and diplomatic vise on North Korea. It was unclear what new sanctions the designation would unlock: The kinds of unilateral steps that it triggers, like a ban on U.S. economic aid or U.S. arms sales, are mostly irrelevant because North Korea already does not benefit from such assistance.
A Canadian woman found guilty of her 7-year-old son's death after failing to seek medical treatment for his severe strep infection has been sentenced to prison for three years.

A U.S. border agent has died following what government officials described as an “attack” in West Texas on Sunday morning that left a second agent seriously injured. Rogelio Martinez, 36, was on patrol near Van Horn, Texas, roughly 90 miles east of El Paso, when his partner reported that they were injured and in need of assistance, according to a statement released by U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott on Monday announced a reward of up to $20,000 for information leading to arrest of those responsible for the agent’s death.
Hidden footage from 2014 shows the disturbing moment a group of nurses laughed as a World War II veteran repeatedly called for help and died. The family of 89-year-old James Dempsey of Woodstock, Georgia, installed a hidden camera in his room at the Northeast Atlanta Health and Rehabilitation Center when he first moved in, fearing mistreatment. The video showed Dempsey calling for help, even telling the nurses that he couldn't breathe at one point.
HUNTSVILLE, Ala. ― At the monthly meeting of the Madison County Republican Men’s Club here on Saturday, the subject at hand was Judge Roy Moore. You could tell from the way people kept talking about anyone and anything else, such as Sen. Al Franken.

Experts ruled out Monday the possibility that noise detected at sea could have come from an Argentine submarine missing with 44 people aboard, in the latest bad news to hit their relatives. "The sound footprint could not correspond to a sub's... it may have been a noise from a living thing," said navy spokesman Enrique Balbi. "The search continues," he added, noting that there are 14 vessels and 10 aircraft scouring area 24 hours a day in the midst of a storm front in the South Atlantic that is expected to ease on Tuesday.

Both Drumstick and Wishbone, the National Thanksgiving Turkey and its alternate “wingman,” will reside at their new home, Gobbler’s Rest, at Virginia Tech.
Charles Manson has been called many things over the years. With the focus almost always on Manson as a persona — instead of the crimes he helped to carry out — it’s easy to forget, given the passage of nearly five decades, that it was a string of brutal murders by Manson and his followers that earned the convicted killer his nicknames and an infamous page in the history books. Hospital staff initially referred to him as "no name Maddox" until his mother gave him the name Charles Milles Maddox.

The Thanksgiving holiday spirit took a bit of a strident twist during Monday’s press briefing by White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. “If you want to ask a question, I think it’s only fair, since I’ve shared what I’m thankful for, that you start off with what you’re thankful for. Huckabee Sanders noted that she was “clearly very thankful for all of you here in the room — I think that goes without saying,” to laughter.

Joe Biden may be another year older, but these memes never get old. Former President Barack Obama celebrated the 75th birthday of the former vice president Monday by tweeting a meme that seemed to capture their friendship over the years in a nutshell. The meme, in theme with past ones created for and by the iconic pair, shows a serious Obama giving his 2014 State of the Union address before Congress as Biden hilariously grins and points in the background.

Charlie Rose, one of America's most respected broadcasters, an award-winning television host and interviewer, was suspended Monday after eight women accused him of years of sexual harassment and unwanted advances. A bombshell Washington Post report said the women were employees or aspired to work on the "Charlie Rose" show and were in their 20s and 30s when the alleged harassment took place from the 1990s to as recently as 2011. The report makes Rose, now 75, the latest senior male journalist accused of misconduct in the wake of the downfall of Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, which opened the floodgates of sexual assault and harassment accusations in many industries.
The American mother who spent five years as a hostage of the Taliban broke her cheekbone and her hand while trying to stop her captors from attacking her three children, all who were born in captivity, she and her husband said in a new interview Monday. Caitlan Coleman Boyle, 31, of Pennsylvania told ABC News some of her captors “actively hated children” and would sometimes strike her and her children with sticks. A Taliban-linked group captured Coleman Boyle and her husband Joshua Boyle in 2012 while the couple was traveling in Afghanistan.
Many have believed the accusations against Roy Moore of sexual assault and harassment against teen girls to be massively hypocritical since for years he’s presented himself as a hardcore evangelical man of faith, and he has a loyal white Christian evangelical following. Moore in fact represents an extremist wing of an already theocratic-leaning base of the GOP that believes all women must be subservient and submit ― as Mike Huckabee, who hasn’t pulled his full-throated endorsement of Moore, infamously once said of women with regard to their husbands, expressing his own “Handmaid’s Tale” dream come true ― and that would no doubt include young women such as teen girls. After all, as one of Moore’s defenders in the Alabama GOP said in dismissing the allegations, “Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult carpenter.
A white former police officer in Tulsa, Oklahoma, has been sentenced to 15 years behind bars for fatally shooting his daughter’s 19-year-old black boyfriend in 2014.

At the jury’s recommendation, Tulsa County District Court Judge Sharon Holmes sentenced Kepler to a 15-year prison term on Monday.
A 102-year-old Polish man who believed his entire family had died in the Holocaust was reduced to tears this week when he met a nephew that he didn't know he had. Eliahu Pietruszka was just 24 years old when he fled Warsaw in 1939 during World War II, according to the Associated Press. Both of his parents and Zelig were later transported from the Warsaw Ghetto to a Nazi death camp where they were killed, but Volf somehow managed to escape to the Soviet Union as well.
British naval tactics dating from the Napoleonic Wars of the early 1800s should be applied to isolate North Korea, according to a former United States Navy officer who has also served as an advisor to senior US politicians. A multinational blockade would increase the pressure on Kim Jong-un and force the North Korean dictator to abandon its development of nuclear weapons and intercontinental ballistic missiles, Gregory Keeley, a retired lieutenant commander with the US Navy, wrote in an opinion article in The Hill. Lt Cmdr Keeley said that President Donald Trump has two potential ways of dealing with North Korea - although "direct kinetic military action" and learning to live with a despotic, nuclear-armed nation, are equally bad, he said.
State media quoted Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Ghasemi as calling on Saudi Arabia to stop its "barbaric attacks" on Yemen, where a Saudi-led coalition has been at war with Tehran-backed rebels since March 2015.

Security Council.
