The US media is too focused on Trump to report any news anymore, much less international news. That’s why I have to go to places like this to get my US and international news now, along with European news sites.

You need to check your news source. Apparently whatever source you have is quite biased. What the senator actually said was “Unless there's something more, no I'm not going to ruin Judge Kavanaugh's life over this.”

Sounds to me that yes, he is sceptical, but is open to hearing and Ford’s testimony. Remember, innocent until PROVEN guilty. Sounds like you’ve made up your mind prior to any testimony, which shows your clear bias.

I’ve tired of watching these millionaire actors slapping each other on the back while spouting their political beliefs. No more for me!

Sad to hear of his passing. He was one of the few centrists left of either party.

It was a kind gesture, repeated, to return both flags to the family.

They need to find something other than cars to talk about. Even most Americans don’t want American cars!

@ Yuri Otani

Your answer is zero. President Trump hasn’t broken any treaties. The Iran deal was never an official treaty because President Obama never had it ratified by congress, which is why Trump could just wipe the deal out with a stroke of a pen. TPP was never completed either, which meant Trump could just decide not to be a signatory. He’s renegotiating the NAFTA treaty, but still abiding by the current treaty.

So to reiterate the point, Trump has honored all treaties while not agreeing to new ones and attempting to renegotiate others. That’s what a leader does, lead. Whether you or I agree with him or not he’s leading. It was disappointing to see our last president make such weak, easily undone agreements.

Posted in: 2 years on, Brexit vote has taken a toll on UK economy See in context

Seems the largest problem with Brexit is May’s foot dragging, leaving everything uncertain for the future of the U.K. Businesses don’t know what to expect and are rightly hesitant to make new investments until there is some sort of clear vision of the future. Get on with it Ms May or step asside and let someone with the will and vision to do it move past this period of uncertainty and stagnation!

Charcoal eh? I wonder if she was a fan of Erased. She clearly isn’t very intelligent though.

Posted in: Trump rebukes Japan over nontariff barriers against American cars See in context

Why would anyone in Japan WANT to buy an American car?? I'm an American and I never buy American cars. They are horrible. I have always owned Japanese cars because they are reasonably priced for what you get. They are reliable and are driver-centric. American cars are big beasts with everything looking tacked on. Japanese cars last for decades, American cars last for a few years. Not only that, but most Japanese car makers are now making cars in America that are more American by content that supposed American cars. I've ben telling people for years, buy American, that means a Japanese car!
