    The Transportation Security Administration screened 2.18 million people Monday, the close of the three-day holiday weekend, and four airports had wait times that exceeded 30 minutes, according to the agency.

In addition to airport screening glitches, the shutdown has also hurt airlines because almost all Federal Aviation Administration safety inspectors were off the job […]

    on January 22, 2019 at 3:47 pm

    Thousands of ships, including former dictator Saddam Hussein's yacht, have passed through the Iraqi shipyard's three docks, where a giant steam engine hauls them out of the water and up the century-old wooden tracks.

"They say they [the British] brought in the wood from Burma... we tried to drill a 1.5 inch nail into it once, we couldn't," said Jassim Hussain Sabour, the shipyard's […]

  • The Mueller Squirrel Cage
    on January 22, 2019 at 11:30 am

    Special Counsel Robert Mueller recently indicted yet another peripheral character in his Trump probe, Russian attorney Natalia V. Veselnitskaya, for alleged money laundering in a matter quite separate from Trump.

If Mueller was not a special counsel, and if he was not looking for anyone deemed […]

    Boys from a Catholic school in Kentucky were treated unfairly in a rush to judgment, President Donald Trump said on Monday after allegations the students had mocked a Native American elder.
