Attack on Saudi Arabia oil field would likely not have been stopped by any country: expert

Saudi Arabia defended itself as well as possible from the recent massive attack on its oil facilities — an attack that the U.S. has blamed on Iran, a military expert said.

“I don’t think there is any country that could have defended any better than Saudi Arabia did, and that includes the United States,” Peter Roberts, director of military sciences at the Royal United Services Institute, told The New York Times.

Eighteen drones and seven cruise missiles bombarded the facilities in an asault described as a “Pearl Harbor-type” attack. Defending against swarms of sophisticated unmanned drones has been an ongoing concern for militaries.

But even though Riyadh has a capable military with air defense systems, its forces could do little to stop the onslaught, Roberts told the Times.

The Guardian, in an article titled,  “Middle East Drones Signal End to Era of  Fast Jet Air Supremacy,” called Sunday’s attack “the first full-blown drone attack on a strategic site of global significance.”

Countries are investing in laser technology to defend against drones. Companies like Boeing and Lockheed Martin are more than 10 years away from the technology, according to MarketWatch.

The U.S. and Saudi Arabia both placed blame on Iran for carrying out the attack. Iran denied responsibility. Yemen’s Houthi fighters claimed they were behind the attack. Military drone use in the region is not uncommon. Israel has employed them in Syria and Iran has a fleet.

“The bottom line is that we are likely to see many more of these sorts of attacks, and in particular, coordinated attacks on multiple targets are likely, possibly in tandem with a cyber attack component,” Milena Rodban, an independent risk consultant in Washington, told The Sydney Morning Herald.

At least one person was killed and five injured Thursday night when gunfire erupted in the Columbia Heights section of Washington, D.C., prompting a major police response and a search for the suspects.

Two of the victims were listed in critical condition, but they were expected to survive. Washington’s WRC-TV reported that officials were looking for two men who were inside a light-colored car with an “AK style” rifle.

Police said they were working to determine a motive and will interview witnesses and check security-camera footage from the location, at the 1300 block of Columbia Road NW, about two miles from the White House. FOX 5 DC reported that three others were shot at a different location in a separate shooting in the city.

He couldn’t believe his eyes.

Robert Wilson Barnes bought a sandwich at a Jimmy John’s restaurant recently for himself and his wife and just before they were about to dig in, he noticed black writing on the wrapper: ‘B**CH.”

Intent on defending his wife’s honor, Barnes said on Facebook that he returned to the store (while fuming) and asked to speak to the manager.

“He looked confused, so I pointed at the writing on the sandwich and demanded that he tells me why someone felt the need to write it on my wife’s sandwich,” he posted.

He said the manager told him that his wife ordered a BLT with cheese.

Trump says border initiatives working, cites drop in illegal crossings

President Trump, in an exclusive interview airing on “Fox & Friends,” on Thursday morning, said maneuvers taken by his administration to secure the U.S.-Mexico border have resulted in a major drop in illegal crossings and a safer working environment for Border Patrol agents.

“We wish we had help from the Democrats in Congress, but they said they want open borders,” the president said during the wide-ranging interview with Fox News’ Ed Henry. “They don’t want this. They want criminals to come in.”

“We wish we had help from the Democrats in Congress, but they said they want open borders. They don’t want this. They want criminals to come in.”

— President Trump

Illegal immigration has been a key topic at recent Democratic debates and the difference between Trump’s vision and the Democratic field could not be clearer. Some Democratic candidates want to eliminate the law that makes it illegal to enter into the U.S. without permission. They include Sen. Elizabeth Warren and South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

Trump’s claim that illegal border crossings are down could be based off preliminary government figures obtained by Politico earlier this month that said the numbers are down 60 percent since the peak in May.

Much of the credit for the drop was given to Trump’s agreement with the Mexican government in June that resulted in the country intercepting migrants from Central America before reaching the border.

“I think that they are getting exactly what they said they would get, by forcing the hand of Mexico,” one immigration expert from a pro-migrant group told Politico. “But the question is, ‘Is it sustainable?’”

Major Democratic donor Ed Buck arrested, charged with running drug den

Ed Buck, the California Democratic megadonor, was arrested Tuesday and charged with operating a drug house after a third man reportedly suffered an overdose inside his West Hollywood home last week and survived.

Buck has faced public scrutiny after two black men died from overdoses 18 months apart inside his home. He was not charged in those cases.

Buck was charged with three counts of battery and is accused of injecting the alleged third victim with methamphetamine on Sept. 11, The Los Angeles Times reported.

Prosecutors wrote in court papers obtained by the Times that Buck used his position of power to manipulate his victims into participating in his sexual fetishes.

“These fetishes include supplying and personally administering dangerously large doses of narcotics to his victims,” the prosecutors wrote, according to the Times.

Seymour Amster, Buck’s attorney, told Fox News that he would not comment on the arrest and said he is dealing with the issue. Amster has in the past defended his client and insisted that he did nothing wrong.

In July 2017, a young black man, Gemmel Moore, was found dead of a drug overdose in Buck’s apartment. Buck, who is white, was not charged.

An autopsy report said Moore, 26, died of a methamphetamine overdose. He was found naked on a mattress in the living room, which was littered with drug paraphernalia.

Eighteen months later,  55-year-old Timothy Dean also suffered a methamphetamine overdose. Prosecutors didn’t file criminal charges, citing insufficient evidence. Activists, however, have called for his arrest.

Prosecutors are reportedly seeking bail of $4 million. KABC-TV of Los Angeles reported that he faces up to five years and eight months in state prison if convicted. He is due in court Wednesday.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Durbin asked about prospects of Kavanaugh impeachment, says ‘get real’

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_5804029833001_5804059417001-vs Durbin asked about prospects of Kavanaugh impeachment, says ‘get real’ fox news fnc/politics fnc Edmund DeMarche article a0c9ea45-cb5d-5e9e-ae11-ab902baddebb

Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., was asked Monday about the prospects of Democrats taking up an effort to impeach Brett Kavanaugh from the Supreme Court and responded, “Get real,” according to a report.

Calls to impeach Kavanaugh came after an essay in the New York Times brought to light separate sexual misconduct allegations against him dating back to his time at Yale. The Times reported that the FBI did not investigate the claim.

The paper was forced to run an editor’s note and revised the essay after it was revealed that it left out that the accuser declined to be interviewed and her friends said she doesn’t recall the incident.

The report prompted 2020 Democrats to call for Kavanaugh’s ouster. The new push to impeach Kavanaugh appeared to divide Democrats still eyeing an effort to impeach President Trump.

“We’ve got to get beyond this ‘impeachment is the answer to every problem,” Durbin said, according to Politico. “It’s not realistic. If that’s how we are identified in Congress, as the impeachment Congress, we run the risk that people will feel we’re ignoring the issues that mean a lot to them as families.”

Rep. Jerry Nadler, the New York Democrat and chair of the House Judiciary Committee, said the committee will ask Christopher Wray, the FBI director, about the investigation during a later hearing. Nadler stressed that his focus is on impeaching Trump.

A Kavanaugh impeachment would require a majority vote in the Democratic-controlled House, and two-thirds vote in the GOP-majority Senate.

Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., will reportedly file an impeachment resolution on Tuesday. She said he must be “held accountable for his actions.”

US shares info with Saudi Arabia that blames Iran for oil field attack: report

Iran was the staging ground for the weekend attacks on the massive Saudi Arabia oil field, according to U.S. intelligence that was shared with the kingdom, a report said.

The Wall Street Journal, citing unnamed sources, reported that the intelligence report—that was not shared publicly—indicated that Iran raided the massive oil field with at least a dozen missiles and 20 drones.

The State Department did not immediately respond to an after-hours email from Fox News on Tuesday morning. The Journal’s report said that a Saudi official indicated that the U.S. intelligence was not definitive. The official told the paper that the U.S. did not provide enough evidence to prove without a doubt that Tehran’s hand was involved.

President Trump has said the U.S. is “locked and loaded” and able to respond to the threat but also said he wants to avoid war. Iran has denied any involvement in the attack. Ahead of UN meeting, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said “there will be no talks with the US at any level,” the Associated Press reported.

Yemen’s Iran-backed Houthi rebels claimed responsibility for the attack on Saturday, sparking huge fires and halting about half of the supplies from the world’s largest exporter of oil. The attack was seen by some analysts as a Pearl Harbor-like event.

The fires led to the interruption of an estimated 5.7 million barrels in crude supplies, as Saudi officials said part of that would be offset with stockpiles.

Thar she blows!

A father and son who were on a fishing trip off the coast of New Jersey last week managed to grab a once-in-a-lifetime video of a massive humpback whale breaching the water just feet from their boat.

The thrilling video was taken on Sept. 12, according to ABC 6.

IS THIS A FISH OR A DINOSAUR?

Mark Bevevino and his son Frank, both from Pennsylvania, told the station that something didn’t seem right while they were fishing for bunker– a baitfish that commonly swim in schools. The two thought they heard a whale surface but did not see any evidence.

Bevevino got his iPhone ready, just in case. His instincts proved to be right and he managed to grab a video of the massive whale surface.

“It was just luck I caught it on my iPhone,” he told the station. “I was just hoping to see him come up for air in the distance.”

A veteran police officer in Tuscaloosa, Ala., was shot and killed Monday after a shootout with a suspect who authorities said ran into a home and opened fire.

The slain officer was identified as Dornell Cousette, 40. He leaves behind two children and was engaged. The suspect, who was not identified in reports, was “no longer a threat.” Reports said he was arrested and was taken to a nearby hospital.

“Hero’s come in many different forms,” Walt Maddox, the city’s mayor, said, according to AL.com. “Tonight one of our heroes has died in the line of duty.”

Shootout mile from Democratic debate; suspect dead, officer seriously wounded

A Houston police officer was seriously wounded Thursday after being shot multiple times by one of four suspects who allegedly stole a car at gunpoint and later beat up a priest.

The shooting occurred about a mile south of the Democratic presidential debate at Texas Southern University in Houston. One of the debate’s key topics was gun control.

Chief Art Acevedo asked for prayers for the unidentified 29-year-old officer, who he said was in guarded condition. He said one of the suspects was shot and killed in the exchange of fire, two other men were in custody and police were searching for the fourth.

Acevedo said the chaotic evening of violence began about 9:56 p.m. Thursday with the carjacking, but the vehicle soon ran out of gas and the suspects fled.

Police believe the men then assaulted a priest and stole his cell phone. The firefight took place about 15 minutes later. At least one officer, potentially two, exchanged gunfire with the armed suspect. He was shot and killed, Fox 26 reported.

The wounded police officer is a five-year veteran on the force. KHOU11 reported that he was shot three times and the bullets hit him just below the vest. He was awake and talking while he was rushed to Memorial Hermann Hospital.
