    The fall in traffic could signal a permanent shift in the fundamentals driving globalisation. The Port of Charleston spent most of the early 2000s enjoying double-digit growth as an accelerating wave of globalisation — fuelled by a rising China and a US consumer boom — brought robust volumes of cargo into the seaport. But those days are long gone. Jim Newsome, chief executive of the South Carolina Ports Authority, says he would be happy with 3 per cent growth in Charleston this year, a goal he concedes may be too ambitious. In January, container traffic at the port fell 5.1...

    The oceans are rising faster than at any point in the last 28 centuries, and human emissions of greenhouse gases are primarily responsible, scientists reported Monday. They added that the flooding that is starting to make life miserable in many coastal towns - like Miami Beach; Norfolk, Va.; and Charleston, S.C. - was largely a consequence of those emissions, and that it is likely to grow worse in coming years. The ocean could rise as much as three or four feet by 2100, as ocean water expands and the great ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica begin to collapse. Experts...

    U.S. President Barack Obama pulls up his collar as he arrives in the rain with first lady Michelle Obama to attend the Republic Day parade in New Delhi January 26, 2015. REUTERS/Jim Bourg The White House announced on Wednesday that neither President Barack Obama or first lady Michelle Obama will be attending the funeral of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. While Justice Scalia’s funeral apparently doesn’t warrant Obama’s presence, here are six funerals that did. Senator Daniel Inouye (D-HI) Less than two months before the 2012 election, both Obamas took time out of their schedule to attend the...

    A journalist who "reported" last year that Dylann Roof shot and killed nine African-American churchgoers in Charleston, S.C., because his love interest chose a black man over him has been revealed to be a serial fabricator and plagiarist. Former Intercept reporter Juan Thompson, who is black, wrote in June 2015 that Roof's cousin, Scott, told him in an interview that the shooter "kind of went over the edge when a girl he liked starting dating a black guy two years back." Newsrooms, including the New York Daily News, the Root, the Independent, the Daily Mail and Radar Online, pounced on...

    Agema said he has asked the Republican National Committee to pass a resolution at its winter meetings later this month in Charleston, South Carolina, urging Congress to act on about 50 articles of impeachment drafted by the North American Law Center. The articles accuse Obama of criminal identity fraud, helping U.S. enemies, for example, by not enforcing immigration law and overstepping the bounds of his authority, for example, by ordering military action without congressional support.

    On Monday, when he announced that a grand jury had declined to indict two Cleveland police officers in the 2014 shooting death of 12-year-old Tamir Rice, Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Timothy McGinty said enhanced video of the incident showed the boy was drawing what looked like a gun from his waistband. Although the object was actually an Airsoft pellet pistol, McGinty said, Timothy Loehmann, the officer who killed Tamir within two seconds of arriving at the scene, had no way of knowing that. Even if we accept this account, it does not explain why Frank Garmback, Loehmann's partner, drove right...

    When Governor Nikki Haley – in the wake of the shooting that claimed the lives of nine churchgoers in Charleston – called for the removal of the Confederate battle flag from the South Carolina State Capitol, it marked a significant shift. Across the South, symbols of the Confederacy have been taken off of store shelves and monuments to Confederate generals and leaders are being taken down even in 300-year-old cities like New Orleans. In one city in the Deep South, the name chosen to replace Old Dixie Highway, as WPTV reports, is a sign of the extent of the cultural...

    Hillary Clinton accused of race smear against Bernie Sanders by hinting he is calling gun violence a 'black problem' Hillary Clinton seems to have a new critique of Bernie Sanders' gun stance. While not naming her Democratic rival directly, Clinton said before the Charleston, South Carolina, branch of the NAACP Friday that talking about 'urban' gun violence, as Sanders did at the first debate, was simply code for 'black.' 'There are some who say that it is an urban problem,' Clinton stated. 'Sometimes what they mean by that is: It's a black problem. But it's not. It's not black. It's...

That comes to $3.2 million per family. Where in the Constitution does it say the president can or should do this? This looks like theft.

    For more than a century, the CSS Hunley rested at the bottom of the ocean just outside Charleston harbor, its crew entombed, its hull gradually encased in hardening encrustations. When it was raised 15 years ago off South Carolina, it looked more like a barnacled sea monster than the world's first operational submarine, sunk in battle during the winter of 1864. The remains of its eight sailors were removed in 2001, but research has continued, and Thursday, a conservation team announced that experts have now removed more than half a ton of the encrustations. The result: the Hunley has...

    PRINCETON, N.J. -- Despite the significant public attention on confrontations between black citizens and police in Missouri, Maryland and New York over the past year, blacks in 2015 express virtually the same opinions about being mistreated by police as they did in 2013. This year, 18% of adult blacks say there has been an occasion the last 30 days when they personally felt they were treated unfairly in dealings with police, which is virtually the same as the 17% recorded in 2013. This is down from as high as 25% in 2004.

They occurred in the same time period as the trial of the Colorado theater killer with its national publicity. I didnt catch the mans name, but a recent newscast included a comment by the relative...

If the background check has not been completed within three days, the dealer has discretion to sell the firearm. The rule allowed Dylann Roof, the alleged killer of nine people at a...

    Bucking a nationwide trend, the tri-county Charleston metro areas population was just as white in 2014 as it was in 2000, according to recently-released estimates. Non-Hispanic white residents accounted for 64 percent of the population in Berkeley, Charleston and Dorchester counties last year, as was the case 14 years earlier.
  • A Showdown Between the KKK and the Black Panthers Is Brewing in Charleston

    The New Black Panther Party and the Ku Klux Klan both scheduled hate rallies at the South Carolina state Capitol on the same day, July 18, and neither side appeared to be willing to consider rescheduling. According to Black Educators for Justice member James Mohammed, the NBPP would be out in full force at its rally. Likewise, USA Today reported earlier this week that the KKK left the following message on its answering machine: We will be at the statehouse in Columbia, S.C., standing up for our Confederate history and all the southerners who fought and died against federal tyranny....

    A University of Michigan history professor is blaming the Charleston church shooting on Islamophobia being spread by right wing Jews such as Pamela Geller and Daniel Pipes. Professor Juan Cole argues in his blog, Informed Comment, that far right wing Jews like Daniel Pipes and Pamela Geller, French politician Marine LePen and Dutch politician Geert Wilders, and the whole Islamophobic Network were a key influence in Dylann Roofs shooting of nine people in a black church in Charleston, South Carolina, on June 17, reported Campus Reform. Cole cites Roofs comments against European immigrants in a manifesto published in the wake...

    Washington (CNN)Bombastic GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump offered a rare spot of praise for President Barack Obama on Wednesday, in an interview with CNN's Don Lemon. He also said improving race relations would be a priority for him if elected president. The hotel developer shared his views on CNN Tonight with Don Lemon while reflecting on the Charleston Massacre, where nine African-Americans were killed in a church earlier this month by a white man who said he wanted to start a race war. Trump, a staunch critic of Obama, spoke highly of the eulogy the President gave at the funeral...

    After sidestepping questions about the issue over the weekend, Gov. Scott Walker on Monday said he supports South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley's call to remove the Confederate flag from the state Capitol. "I am glad @nikkihaley is calling for the Confederate flag to come down. I support her decision - SKW," Walker tweeted from his political account shortly after Haley called for the flag to be taken down. The push to remove the flag comes in the wake of the racially-motivated killing of nine black worshippers in a historic Charleston church last week. Dylann Roof, a white 21-year-old man, has...

    The nation's demagogues and constitutionally ignorant are using the Charleston, South Carolina, AME church shooting to attack the Second Amendment's "right of the people to keep and bear Arms." A couple of years ago, President Barack Obama said, "I have a profound respect for the traditions of hunting that trace back in this country for generations." That's a vision shared by many Americans, namely that the Constitution's framers gave us the Second Amendment to protect our rights to go deer and duck hunting, do a bit of skeet shooting, and protect ourselves against criminals. That this vision is so widely...

    WEST COLUMBIA, S.C. Nearly two weeks after canceling a campaign event scheduled the morning after the deadly attack on a South Carolina church, Jeb Bush on Monday called the Confederate battle flag a racist symbol, reflecting the new Republican normal in a Southern primary state vastly altered by the racially motivated killings. The flag was one of the symbols that have divided the South in many ways, the symbols that were used in most recent modern history, perhaps not at the beginning of the time, but the symbols were racist, Mr. Bush told an interracial crowd of about 200...

    Jeb Bush said Monday that the Confederate flag has become a "racist" symbol and applauded efforts to remove the flag outside the South Carolina State Capitol after a racially motivated church shooting. In his first campaign stop in South Carolina since the deadly shooting that killed nine at AME Emanuel Church in Charleston, Bush recalled how he "decided to do something politically incorrect" and removed the flags outside the Florida state house when he was governor in 2001. "The symbols were racist," the Republican presidential candidate said during a campaign stop at a pharmaceutical manufacturing plant.
