By MATTHEW LEE and DEB RIECHMANN JERUSALEM — President Donald Trump said Thursday that it’s time for the United States to recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the disputed Golan Heights, an announcement that signals a shift in U.S. policy and comes ahead of the Israeli prime minister’s planned visit next week to the White House.

Q&A: Waiting for the final Mueller report and what happens next

By CHAD DAY and ERIC TUCKER WASHINGTON  — America is waiting for special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.

Federal judge casts doubt on Trump’s drilling plans because they ignore climate change

By JULIET EILPERIN WASHINGTON – A federal judge ruled late Tuesday that the Interior Department violated federal law by failing to take into account the climate impact of its oil and gas leasing in the West. The decision by U.S. District Judge Rudolph Contreras of Washington marks the first time the Trump administration has been held to account for the climate impact of its energy-dominance agenda, and it could have sweeping implications for the president’s plan to boost fossil fuel production a...

How Rick Singer started the college admissions cheating scandal? It began with a reality TV audition

Rick Singer looks straight into the camera, auditioning for his own reality show about the cutthroat world of college admissions. Wearing a light blue sweater vest, he pitches himself as a “life-coach” for families desperate to get their kids into Stanford, Yale and USC. He has the look of a tennis pro and a voice that could pass for New York “fixer” Michael Cohen. “This is a game,’’ he says on the production company video submitted to a network in 2010 and unearthed last week by TMZ . “Just rea...

New Zealand massacre shines light on threat of far right extremism worldwide

The mass shooting in Christchurch, New Zealand, which left 49 dead and many others injured, is a reminder that far-right, white supremacist ideology — which was linked to an overwhelming majority of violent extremist murders in the United States in 2017 — is the “most prominent and ascendant threat not just in the United States, but around the world,” a Southern California expert who studies hate and extremism said Friday. A 74-page manifesto posted online by the 28-year-old man charged with the...

Trump issues first veto after rebuke of border emergency order

By JILL COLVIN and ZEKE MILLER WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump issued the first veto of his presidency on Friday, overruling Congress to protect his emergency declaration for border wall funding.

By ALAN FRAM, LISA MASCARO and CATHERINE LUCEY WASHINGTON — The Republican-run Senate rejected President Donald Trump’s declaration of a national emergency at the southwest border on Thursday, setting up a veto fight and dealing him a conspicuous rebuke as he tested how boldly he could ignore Congress in pursuit of his highest-profile goal.

Gov. Gavin Newsom’s death penalty moratorium lauded and lambasted

As workers dismantled California’s apple-green execution chamber Wednesday, Gov. Gavin Newsom’s death penalty moratorium was criticized as a slap in the face to voters and praised as a strike for humanity. Newsom’s executive order, blocking execution for 737 prisoners on death row at San Quentin State Prison, came just as efforts to hasten executions were beginning to pick up steam in the aftermath of a 2016 ballot measure approved by voters. There has not been an execution in the state since 20...

Question of the Week: Do you consider gender when evaluating presidential candidates?

If a political candidate happens to be a woman, does that make a difference to you? Perhaps more specifically, if a candidate for president is a woman, does that make you more inclined to vote for her? That’s our Question of the Week for readers. Other democracies — including one, India, even larger than our own, with Indira Gandhi — have had national leaders who are women for generations. No world politician loomed larger on the late 20th-century stage than Britain’s Margaret Thatcher, and Ther...

For a growing number of Americans, socialism is OK

You wouldn’t expect democratic socialists to hit the brakes when it comes to social justice. But in late February members of Inland Empire Democratic Socialists of America learned how to fix brake lights so they could offer that bit of auto repair service, for free, at an upcoming community event. Working tail lights, they reasoned, would mean fewer police traffic stops and, possibly, fewer fatal outcomes for people of color. Auto repair is just one part of the chapter’s public outreach about an...
