Trump is reportedly set to relax U.S. ban on land mines

President Trump will announce as early as Friday that he will undo restrictions on using or acquiring land mines enacted by former President Barack Obama in 2014, two U.S. officials tell Reuters. Obama had moved to stop all U.S. production and acquisition of anti-personnel mines, including to replace degraded stockpiles. The U.S. is not among the more than 160 signatories to the 1997 Mine Ban Treaty, but it adheres to many of its provisions and prohibits the use of anti-personnel mines outside of the Korean peninsula, Reuters says. "The resumption of the use of anti-personnel land mines and continued stockpiling and production of these indiscriminate weapons is militarily unnecessary and dangerous," said Daryl Kimball at the Arms Control Association. The U.S. hasn't used land mines since a single anti-personnel mine in Afghanistan in 2002, Kimball's group says, and the last time the U.S. military used mines in any significant way was in the 1991 Gulf War.

Yesterdaze: NZ’s heroes of hot air

James Elliott explains how Winston is a rooster, Simon a duck, and Jacinda a lamb in a sprawling analogy highlighting the significance of NZ's election date, announced this week.  This week, PM Jacinda Ardern announced we’re having a general election on September 19. Commentators were quick to point out that September 19 will be the 127th anniversary of women’s suffrage in New Zealand. However, given that election day will be preceded by weeks of political pledges and puffery, we shouldn’t forget that September 19 also marks the 247th anniversary of the first-ever hot air balloon flight which took place at Versailles in front of the French King Louis XVI on September 19, 1783. And the symbolic relevance of that momentous day to our general election doesn’t end there. When the Montgolfier brothers’ hot air balloon returned safely to earth king Louis declared its occupants to be “heroes of the air”. However, it turns out that those heroic balloonists were in fact a sheep, a rooster and a duck, the Montgolfier brothers…

Britain celebrates and mourns on Brexit Day, its final day of EU membership

Three and a half years after narrowly voting to leave the European Union, the United Kingdom is celebrating and mourning its final day of EU membership Friday before leaving the union at 11 p.m., or midnight in Brussels. Prime Minister Boris Johnson will address the nation at 10 p.m. to inaugurate what he will call "a moment of real national renewal and change." Britain and the EU have agreed that the U.K. will retain all EU rules for 11 months while the two sides try to hammer out a new trade relationship and other guidelines for their new relationship. But Britain remains sharply divided on Brexit, with larger cities, Northern Ireland, and especially Scotland still in favor of remaining in the EU. In Edinburgh, where the EU flag will remain raised outside the Scottish Parliament on Friday night and the EU colors blue and yellow will light up two government buildings, Scottish Brexit Secretary Mike Russell urged the EU to "leave a light on for Scotland" so it could return, presumably as an independent country.…

Sen. Lamar Alexander's Democratic colleagues are 'disappointed' with his no-witnesses vote, see a silver lining

Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) announced Thursday night that he will vote against calling new witnesses in President Trump's impeachment trial, but he also said Trump's actions were "inappropriate." His decision means there will likely be at most 50 votes for witnesses, and since few people think Chief Justice John Roberts would break a tie, Trump's trial is expected to come to a swift end. Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.) told CNN's Anderson Cooper he's "very disappointed" in Alexander's decision, though it appears the GOP senator "essentially said that the House case has been proven but it doesn't rise to the level of impeachment." Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.) told CNN's Chris Cuomo that he's also "deeply disappointed" in Alexander's decision to allow "the first impeachment trial in history that has no witnesses at all, and it's hard to imagine that this is a fair trial under those circumstances." On the other hand, he said, it's "refreshing to hear somebody on the other side describe it as inappropriate." Democratic…

'Campus carry' bill won't get far, GOP leaders say

Republican leadership in the Oklahoma Legislature have assured Oklahoma City's business community that a proposed campus carry bill won't make it far this year. Senate Bill 1567 would allow anyone with a valid handgun license to carry a concealed handgun while on a university, college or CareerTech campus. The bill would allow schools to prohibit concealed handguns at events, including sports games. State Rep. Jon Echols, the Republican who controls the flow of bills and the House daily agenda, expressed clear opposition Thursday during a panel discussion for the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber of Commerce. "As long as I'm floor leader, we will not have the guns on campus bill hit the floor of the Oklahoma House of

A man accused in a drive-by shooting did not help his case by yelling profanities at a judge, who found him in direct contempt and sentenced him to six months in jail. Juvenal Garcia is charged in Oklahoma County District Court with two felonies, including one count of using a vehicle to facilitate the intentional discharge of a firearm.

Bernie Sanders jumps past Joe Biden in new national poll

Days ahead of the Iowa caucuses, a new poll finds Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) jumping to the front of the 2020 pack nationally. A Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey released Friday found Sanders leading with the support of 27 percent of Democratic primary voters, statistically tying former Vice President Joe Biden, who received 26 percent support. Sen Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) placed third with 15 percent support, while former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg placed fourth with nine percent support. This is the first time Sanders has had the lead in The Wall Street Journal/NBC News' primary poll, which always previously showed Biden ahead. The Vermont senator rose six points since December, while Biden's support declined two percent and Warren's declined three percent since last month. Friday's poll found that Sanders "has gained support by drawing voters from" Warren, the Wall Street Journal writes, while Sanders also has his biggest lead yet over Biden among voters under 50 with an advantage of almost…
