Senate Rejects Bipartisan Effort to End 9/11 Military Force Declaration

But so far Congress has balked, declining to take on the difficult issue even as lawmakers such as Mr. Kaine insist that the legislative branch should reclaim its constitutional duty to declare war.In the House, in another unlikely partnership, Representative Barbara Lee, the California Democrat who was the only member of the House to vote against the original resolution in 2001, paired up with Representative Scott Taylor, a freshman Virginia Republican and former Navy SEAL, over the summer to convince the Appropriations Committee to insert language repealing the original use of force declaration into a spending bill.“I just felt compelled to stand up and say, now it’s time to look at the AUMF,” Mr. Taylor said, using the acronym for the authorization for the use of military force. He said once he spoke up, other Republicans joined in to support him: “It’s an issue that I don’t think is going to go away.”But Republican leaders stripped the provision out of the spending measure; Speaker Paul D. Ryan said at the time that the move was a “mistake” and that such language was not appropriate for inclusion in a spending measure.“It was really shameful,” Ms. […]

How Hurricane Irma Became So Huge and Destructive

PhotoHurricane Irma as it moved toward Florida on Friday.Credit National Oceanic and Atmospheric AdministrationWASHINGTON — As Hurricane Irma barrels dangerously toward Florida, scientists say that a perfect mix of meteorological conditions has conspired over the past week to make the storm unusually large and powerful.“You need just the right ingredients for a hurricane of this magnitude to last for so long,” said Phil Klotzbach, an atmospheric scientist at Colorado State University. “And Irma has had them all.”Weather forecasters had already expected this summer to be an active hurricane season in the Atlantic Ocean because of warmer-than-average ocean surface temperatures, which provide fuel for hurricanes, as well as weaker-than-average wind shear, which can help to dissipate storms.But even in that context, Irma was special.Irma initially developed near Cape Verde off Africa’s coast on August 30, and a ridge of high pressure kept the storm from wandering off harmlessly into the cooler northern ocean. Instead, it was pushed inexorably westward, with plenty of time to intensify over the warm Atlantic waters.On its journey west, Irma underwent at least six cycles called “eyewall replacement,” when the eye of the hurricane naturally contracts. While storms can weaken during this process, they also can quickly intensify and expand in size once the cycle is complete. And Irma did not weaken — it just grew and grew.GraphicA ‘500-Year Flood’ Could Happen Again Sooner Than You Think. […]

Hurricane Irma Barrels Toward U.S., Threatening to Engulf Florida

People are not forced to leave if they do not want to go. “We let them know there will be no police or fire responding to you when the winds rise above 39 miles per hour,” said Elpido Garcia, a Miami Beach police officer.In Hollywood, Isaak Kaspler, 80, and his wife, Alexandra, 78, both Holocaust survivors, decided to stay put in their beachside building.

As White Nationalist in Charlottesville Fired, Police ‘Never Moved’

Officials have insisted that no “stand down” order was issued, and a state police spokeswoman said troopers did not hear the shot. But many people suspect the inaction was deliberate, because just a month earlier, the police were heavily criticized for responding harshly at a Ku Klux Klan rally where anti-Klan protesters were sprayed with tear gas and arrested.On the day of the “Unite the Right” rally, Aug. 12, only eight arrests were made, even with 125 local officers, hundreds of National Guard troops, the state police and neighboring police agencies present. Those arrested included James A. Fields, the driver who has been charged with murder in the death of Heather D. Heyer.Investigators are also close to making arrests in the case of DeAndre Harris, 20, a local teacher’s aide and African-American who was beaten with a metal pipe and slabs of wood in a parking garage just a few yards from Police Headquarters, the city manager, Maurice Jones, said.The police chief and mayor declined requests to be interviewed.Mr. Jones said the police had developed two “tactical mobile force contingency plans” that were to be used as “quick responders” to skirmishes and fights that were popping up throughout downtown. The officers were instructed to “respond to fights directly” and to make arrests in teams and squads, he said.“We saw plenty of video of officers stepping in to de-escalate situations,” Mr. Jones said.He stressed that the city had tried to prevent the rally, but that a federal judge had ordered the city to grant the permit. But even a member of the City Council asked the city manager and the police chief why there was an “apparent unwillingness of officers to directly intervene during overt assaults.”The city did not use a number of security measures recommended by the state police, said Brian Moran, Virginia’s secretary of public safety and homeland security, including a ban on weapons and sticks of all kinds.

Stephen Bannon Out at the White House After Turbulent Run

Mr. Bannon’s many critics bore down after the violence in Charlottesville. Outraged over Mr. Trump’s insistence that “both sides” were to blame for the violence that erupted at a white nationalist rally, leaving one woman dead, human rights activists demanded that the president fire so-called nationalists working in the West Wing. That group of hard-right populists in the White House is led by Mr. Bannon.Here Are the Top Officials in the Trump White House Who Have LeftWith the departure of Stephen K. Bannon, President Trump’s chief strategist, at least eight top officials are no longer in the White House.On Tuesday at Trump Tower in New York, Mr […]

Third Suspect Detained After Attacks in Spain

As the scope of the attacks began to emerge, perhaps the most troubling aspect was the apparent existence of a terrorist cell that coordinated the assailants’ actions that might, but for an accident while mixing chemicals for explosives, have been far more deadly.That mishap occurred just before midnight in the town of Alcanar, 120 miles southwest of Barcelona, and was first reported as a gas explosion. But as attacks unfolded in Barcelona Thursday afternoon and the resort town of Cambrils after midnight, the police soon made the connection to Alcanar.Continue reading the main storyThe attack in Cambrils, about 70 miles southwest of Barcelona, was halted by the police only after the driver of a compact Audi A3 rammed his vehicle into a group of pedestrians, the Catalan authorities said, according to news accounts. Seven people were injured.The Spanish newspaper La Vanguardia reported that the Audi had run through a security check at the entrance to the town, prompting a police chase. After driving into pedestrians, the five occupants emerged, wielding knives. […]

Fact Check: Trump Asks, ‘What About the Alt-Left?’ Here’s an Answer

But there is one stark difference between the violence on the two sides: The police said that James Alex Fields Jr. of Ohio drove his car into a crowd and killed at least one person, Heather Heyer.

J. MacNab, a fellow in the Program on Extremism at George Washington University. Similar episodes of extreme violence certainly exist on the left: the recent congressional baseball shooting in Virginia, or the bombing of the North Carolina Republican Party headquarters.But overall, far-right extremist plots have been far more deadly than far-left plots (and Islamist plots eclipsed both) in the past 25 years, according to a breakdown of two terrorism databases by Alex Nowrasteh, an analyst at the libertarian Cato Institute.White nationalists; militia movements; anti-Muslim attackers; I.R.S […]
