|Grown man Ben Carson blames his wife for the $31,000 dining room set|
|Tue, 20 Mar 2018 15:01:42 -0400|
One of the most powerful men in government, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson, is terrified of desks. Carson disclosed his highly un-understandable anxiety in a House Appropriations Committee hearing on Tuesday. The Secretary was asked to speak about the $31,000 dining set he recently tried to purchase for his office. Carson then used the opportunity to pass the buck. First, he blamed formidable desks. Then, he blamed his wife, who... does not serve in government. SEE ALSO: Donald Trump's 'pee tape' controversy, explained Here's Carson's version of events: "People were being stuck by nails, a chair had collapsed with somebody sitting in it," Carson told the committee. I'm not sure why Carson's HUD Secretary office sounds like it was firebombed in Afghanistan, but either way, Carson decided to go along with a renovation. He allegedly put his wife Candy in charge: "I left it with my wife," Carson said. "The next thing that I, quite frankly, heard about it was that this $31,000 table had been bought."

Because he just publicly threw his wife under the bus. Have some spine @SecretaryCarson and take responsibility. You are the head of a major federal agency. Act like it. https://t.co/RuW0WFjGi4 — Ted Lieu (@tedlieu) March 20, 2018 Carson says he immediately rescinded the order for the table only after he heard about it from news headlines. He said it was on the grounds that he couldn't justify such a lavish purchase as he prepared massive budget cutbacks to his agency. HUD spokespeople initially denied that Carson and his wife had anything to do with the table's purchase, though later internal emails revealed that Candy was actively involved in the purchase. Whoops. The story has eerie parallels to Candy's account of her son's birth. In her book, A Doctor in the House, Candy details how Ben, hands full of placenta, forced her to go downstairs to find something to cut off her own umbilical cord. HUD Secretary Ben Carson, always throwing his wife under the bus. It should be noted that Ben could've found a perfectly adequate dining room set from West Elm, or even CB2. We're not asking him to go all the way down to IKEA. The Price is Not Right, Ben. Neither is blaming your wife for your department's decisions.

|300,000 Troops Will Soon Train for War With North Korea (But There's A Big Catch)|
|Tue, 20 Mar 2018 09:46:00 -0400|
Washington and Seoul have announced that their annual joint military drills will commence from April 1, while a massive diplomat effort is underway to lay the foundations for two summits designed to resolve issues on the troubled peninsula. The military drills, involving over 300,000 troops, were delayed because of the 2018 Winter Olympiad, which finished when the Paralympics concluded on March 18. An intensive inter-Korean dialog on the sidelines of the Games resulted in plans for an inter-Korean summit and – according to a South Korean delegation which went to Pyongyang – a promise from North Korean leader Kim Jong-un to suspend nuclear and missile tests and to convene a summit with US President Donald Trump.
|Trump reportedly received note saying 'do not congratulate' Putin - which he ignored|
|Wed, 21 Mar 2018 06:51:55 -0400|
President Donald Trump did not follow specific warnings from his national security advisers when he congratulated Russian President Vladimir Putin Tuesday on his re-election, including a section in his briefing materials in all-capital letters stating "DO NOT CONGRATULATE," according to officials familiar with the call. Mr Trump also chose not to heed talking points from aides instructing him to condemn Putin about the recent poisoning of a former Russian spy in the United Kingdom with a powerful nerve agent, a case that both the British and US governments have blamed on Moscow. The President's conversation with Putin, which Mr Trump called a "very good call," prompted fresh criticism of his muted tone towards one of the United States' biggest geopolitical rivals amid the ongoing special counsel investigation into Russia's election interference and the Trump campaign's contacts with Russian officials.

|Fifth Texas parcel bomb blast leaves U.S. investigators baffled|

By Jon Herskovitz and Jim Forsyth AUSTIN/SCHERTZ, Texas (Reuters) - A package bomb blew up at a FedEx distribution center near San Antonio on Tuesday, the fifth in a series of attacks that have rocked Texas this month and left baffled investigators searching for what they suspect is a serial bomber. The package filled with nails and metal shrapnel was mailed from Austin to another address in Austin and passed through a sorting center in Schertz, about 65 miles (105 km) away, when it exploded on a conveyer belt, knocking a female employee off her feet, officials said. It was the fifth of a series in explosions in Texas in the past 18 days that have killed two people, injured others, and left hundreds of federal and local investigators scrambling to find the perpetrator and a motive.
