New Jersey attackers linked to anti-Semitic fringe movement

Inquirer Breaking News - Fri, 12/13/2019 - 07:37
The deadly shooting rampage at a New Jersey kosher market has cast a spotlight on a fringe movement known for its anti-Semitic strain of street preaching and its role in a viral-video confrontation at the Lincoln Memorial this year.     Investigators believe that the man and woman who killed three people at the Jersey City grocery Tuesday in addition to gunning down a police officer at a cemetery hated Jews and law enforcement and had expressed interest in the Black Hebrew Israelites movement, New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal said Thursday.   "But we have not definitively established any formal links to that organization or to any other group," ...

House panel presses toward historic Trump impeachment vote

Inquirer Breaking News - Fri, 12/13/2019 - 07:23
WASHINGTON - The House Judiciary Committee pushed deliberately toward a historic vote Thursday to approve articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, split sharply along party lines.     The daylong session was expected to end with charges being sent to the full House for action next week, before the holidays.   The committee, made up of some of the most strident Democrats and Republicans in Congress, clashed for hours in pointed and at times emotional debate, drawing on history and the Constitution to argue over the two charges.   Trump is accused, in the first article, of abusing his presidential power by asking Ukraine to invest...

US and China near deal that would suspend planned tariffs

Inquirer Breaking News - Fri, 12/13/2019 - 07:17
WASHINGTON - The Trump administration and China are close to finalizing a modest trade agreement that would suspend tariffs that are set to kick in Sunday, de-escalating their 17-month trade war.     "We're close to a deal,'' said Myron Brilliant, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's head of international affairs, who has been briefed by both sides.   Brilliant said the administration has agreed to suspend Trump's plans to impose tariffs on $160 billion in Chinese imports Sunday and to reduce existing tariffs, though it wasn't clear by how much.   In return, Beijing would buy more U.S. farm products, increase Americans companies' access to the Chine...

UK exit poll suggests majority for Johnson’s Conservatives

Inquirer Breaking News - Fri, 12/13/2019 - 07:12
LONDON - An exit poll in Britain's election projected Thursday that Prime Minister Boris Johnson's Conservative Party would likely win a solid majority of seats in Parliament, a decisive outcome that should allow Johnson to fulfill his plan to take the U.K. out of the European Union next month.   The survey, released just after polls closed, predicted the Conservatives would get 368 of the 650 House of Commons seats and the Labour Party 191.   That would be the biggest Tory majority for several decades, and a major setback for Labour.     Based on interviews with voters leaving 144 polling stations across the country, the poll is conducted for...

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. - Boeing's Starliner crew capsule finally has a launch date for its first test flight to the International Space Station.     After an intensive review Thursday, NASA and Boeing managers agreed to a Dec. 20 liftoff.   "Hopefully, we should all be getting an early Christmas present this year," said Phil McAlister, director of NASA's commercial spaceflight development.   Just a few technical issues remain to be completed, he noted.   No one will be aboard, just a mannequin named Rosie.

S&P 500, Nasdaq at records as hopes build for a trade deal

Inquirer Breaking News - Fri, 12/13/2019 - 07:02
The S&P 500 and Nasdaq closed at all-time highs Thursday on renewed optimism that the U.S. and China are close to reaching a deal in their costly trade war.   Financial, technology and health care stocks powered much of the rally, which gave the S&P 500 its second straight gain and erased its losses from earlier in the week.   Bond yields surged and real estate companies, utilities stocks and household goods makers fell as investors shifted money away from safe-play investments.   The market has been quick to react to headlines and remarks out of the Trump administration about the 16-month trade war, and Thursday was no different.   ...
