  • EU UK referendum: Who will cook your Indian curry?

    BBC ^ | 25 May 2016 | Nick Robinson
    Now, you may think you know the answer to where Indian chefs come from. If so think again.For decades your "Indian" - whether a chicken tikka masala or late night vindaloo - was almost certainly cooked by a chef from Bangladesh or, perhaps, someone whose father was. Not any more though. The voices you hear in a growing number of kitchens above the noise of the chopping and the sizzling are the voices of East Europeans - in particular Romanians.The reason is that tougher immigration rules mean it simply costs too much for most restaurants to bring new chefs over...
  • Turkey offers US joint Syria operation - without the Kurds

    Turkey is offering to "join forces" with Washington for a special operation inside Syria on condition it doesn't include a Syrian Kurdish militia blacklisted by Ankara but seen as an ally by the US, the foreign minister said. Washington's support of Kurdish fighters in Syria in the fight against Islamic State (ISIS) jihadists has angered Ankara, especially after AFP pictures last week revealed US commandos wearing patches of the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) outlawed by Turkey. "If we join forces, they (the US) have their own special forces and we have our special forces," Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu told...

    The Iranian nuclear deal was one of the main factors that influenced Donald Trump’s decision to run for president in 2016, his son, Eric Trump, said on Sunday. “I think, honestly, the Iran nuclear deal was one of the things that made him jump into the race,” Eric Trump told John Catsimatidis on the “Cats Roundtable” radio program on AM 970 in New York. “I think that was a game-changer for him.” “That is when he finally said, ‘Kids, I am going to it. I am going to give this a real shot,’” he added. In his campaign kickoff speech...

    A warning siren bellowed through the concrete bunker of a top-secret Naval facility where U.S. military engineers prepared to demonstrate a weapon for which there is little defense. Officials huddled at a video screen for a first look at a deadly new supergun that can fire a 25-pound projectile through seven steel plates and leave a 5-inch hole. The weapon is called a railgun and requires neither gunpowder nor explosive. It is powered by electromagnetic rails that accelerate a hardened projectile to staggering velocity—a battlefield meteorite with the power to one day transform military strategy, say supporters, and keep the...

    The Amish don’t read Donald Trump’s tweets and can’t watch his television appearances, and voting is practically against their religion. But that’s not stopping a group of Trump allies with ties to Ben Carson and Newt Gingrich from mounting a campaign to turn them out anyway. Amish PAC was started by an alum of a pro-Carson super PAC, an ex-Amish donor to that super PAC and an employee of Gingrich Productions. The group is planning to mount an old-fashioned, billboards-and-newspaper-ads effort this summer, designed to encourage Amish people in Pennsylvania and Ohio to turn out for Trump in November....

We also learned (or were reminded) that students at Oberlin, one of the most prestigious colleges in the country, are wee wailing babies who are having the all-day equivalent of night terrors. You can hardly speak to them without using “magic circles” to soothe them. These two trends aren’t coincidental: Millennials, and the generation following them, are reforming the country. What they’re creating amounts to the Childish States of America. If our national symbols were to...

    Thousands of Kurdish Peshmerga troops are involved in an offensive to regain formerly Kurdish villages near the ISIS-held town of Mosul, Kurdish officials say. The Peshmerga-led ground offensive, backed by international coalition air support, was launched early Sunday to retake several villages near Khazir, east of Mosul. The operation includes approximately 5,500 Peshmerga fighters. The move comes ahead of a joint offensive by Kurdish forces and Iraqi troops to retake Mosul, Kurdish media says. Kurdish media outlet Rudaw reported that the Peshmerga troops, accompanied by Zeravani Special Forces -- a Kurdish paramilitary outfit -- picked their way across ISIS-held territory,...

The Americans have been “pretending” all along, he continued. “It’s the intensity that is important. The US coalition pretended to bomb Daech for a year, but there are no results. If you do it in a much more efficient way, the results will be seen.” He added that in his view, 80...

    Donald Trump is not a conventional politician. And his path to the White House may not be very conventional either. He's hinting at a path to 270 electoral votes that would redraw the electoral map, taking him to victory through some states that haven't gone Republican since George H.W. Bush nearly swept the map in his 1988 bid. Presidential nominees typically focus on a handful of so-called battleground states, those that political observers and campaign strategists believe can tip either way in November. They largely take for granted that the rest of the map is predictable -- Texas for Republicans...

Police have now released surveillance footage of the shooting.

Conservative Review presents a two-part in-depth series from legal experts Hans von Spakovsky and Brad Schlozman that chronicles the administration’s unprecedented assault on local law enforcement.
