Shutdown looms; blame game already in full swing

Fri, 19 Jan 2018 15:51:07 GMT2018-01-19T15:51:07Z

WASHINGTON (AP) - A bitterly divided Congress hurtled toward a government shutdown this weekend in a partisan stare-down over demands by Democrats for a solution on politically fraught legislation to protect about 700,000 younger immigrants from being deported. Democrats in the Senate have served notice they will filibuster a four-week, government-wide funding bill that cleared the House Thursday evening, seeking to shape a subsequent measure. That could expose them to charges that they are...

Shutdown? Terrible, say GOP, Dems. But both threatened it

Fri, 19 Jan 2018 12:25:10 GMT2018-01-19T12:25:10Z

WASHINGTON (AP) - Threatening to shutter the federal government unless demands are met - who would do that? Members of both parties, it turns out. And both sides have complained loudly when the other resorted to a shutdown threat. Some of the same Republicans who claim to abhor the bare-knuckle tactic now playing out in Washington have used it themselves. And some of the Democrats who refused to vote Thursday for federal funding without an immigration deal have decried such hostage-taking i...

Pope shocks Chile by accusing sex abuse victims of slander

Fri, 19 Jan 2018 12:44:31 GMT2018-01-19T12:44:31Z

SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) - Pope Francis accused victims of Chile's most notorious pedophile of slander Thursday, an astonishing end to a visit meant to help heal the wounds of a sex abuse scandal that has cost the Catholic Church its credibility in the country. Francis said that until he sees proof that Bishop Juan Barros was complicit in covering up the sex crimes of the Rev. Fernando Karadima, such accusations against Barros are "all calumny." The pope's re...

California DA says couple's abuse of 12 kids became torture

Fri, 19 Jan 2018 11:04:42 GMT2018-01-19T11:04:42Z

RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) - They were starved and shackled to their beds, sometimes for months. They were beaten and choked. They were given scant medical care, often denied use of a toilet and allowed to shower but once a year. They lived mostly at night, out of sight of neighbors, and knew virtually nothing of the outside world. And yet, some of the children of David and Louise Turpin hatched an escape plan. It took two years to carry out but last weekend a 17-year-old girl and her sister cl...

IOC: More initiatives coming to promote Korean unity

Fri, 19 Jan 2018 16:16:33 GMT2018-01-19T16:16:33Z

LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) - Olympics organizers on Friday welcomed an agreement between North and South Korea to unite athletes at the upcoming Winter Games in Pyeongchang, and promised that "much more exciting initiatives" promoting Korean unity will emerge this weekend. "Watch this space," International Olympic Committee presidential spokesman Mark Adams told The Associated Press in an interview, a day before a crucial meeting of Korean delegations at ...

APNewsBreak: Border wall models thwart US commandos in tests

Fri, 19 Jan 2018 14:54:27 GMT2018-01-19T14:54:27Z

SAN DIEGO (AP) - Recent assaults by tactical teams on prototypes of President Donald Trump's proposed wall with Mexico indicate their imposing heights should stop border crossers, a U.S. official with direct knowledge of the rigorous assessment told The Associated Press. Military special forces based in Florida and U.S. Customs and Border Protection special units spent three weeks trying to breach and scale the eight models in San Diego, using jackhammers, saws, torches and other t...

Thorny global issues abound a year into Trump presidency

Fri, 19 Jan 2018 15:12:42 GMT2018-01-19T15:12:42Z

With a sharp departure from years and sometimes decades of U.S. foreign policy, President Donald Trump has made a seismic global impact during his first year in office. It has been delivered with his own brand of bombast and occasional threats. Contentious issues have always existed, especially in conflict-ridden or volatile countries, but has he improved or worsened matters? Twelve months into his presidency, Associated Press correspondents take stock: RUSSIA Trump repeatedly declared in h...

Gold medalist to Nassar: I won't live as a victim any longer

Fri, 19 Jan 2018 16:23:12 GMT2018-01-19T16:23:12Z

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Olympic gold medalist Jordyn Wieber described herself in court Friday as one of 140 survivors of sexual assault by Larry Nassar, as Michigan State University called on the state's attorney general to investigate the school's handling of complaints against the disgraced former sports doctor. Wieber is the fourth member of the "Fierce Five" - the 2012 U.S. Olympic gymnastics team - to publicly tell of abuse by Nassar under the guise of...

Congestion pricing: Driving in Manhattan could cost $11.52

Fri, 19 Jan 2018 14:51:14 GMT2018-01-19T14:51:14Z

NEW YORK (AP) - Motorists would have to shell out $11.52 to drive into the busiest parts of Manhattan under a new proposal floated by Gov. Andrew Cuomo to ease traffic congestion and raise vital funds for mass transit. Trucks would pay even more - $25.34 - while taxi cabs, Uber rides and for-hire vehicles would be charged between $2 and $5 per ride. The pricing zone would cover Manhattan south of 60th Street. The idea, called "congestion pricing," involves using electronic...

Ex-employee: Michael Douglas fondled himself in front of her

Fri, 19 Jan 2018 16:00:20 GMT2018-01-19T16:00:20Z

NEW YORK (AP) - A woman who worked for Michael Douglas in the late 1980s says he fondled himself in front of her - an allegation the actor has vigorously denied. Susan Braudy appeared Friday on NBC's "Today" show. Braudy, a journalist and author, says the actor unbuckled his belt, put his hand into his trousers and fondled himself in her presence. She says a friend later cautioned her not to tell anyone. Douglas, a two-time Oscar winner, told Deadline earlier this...
