Standoff at Honolulu hotel ends as armed man kills himself, police say – CNN

In news from Hawaii, a standoff at a hotel is over after an armed man barricaded inside killed himself following a 10-hour lockdown, Honolulu police said.

Honolulu police said SWAT teams entered the room at the Kahala Hotel and Resort where the man was holed up at 3:30 a.m.  Sunday and found him dead with self-inflicted wounds, according to CNN affiliate KITV.
No other injuries were reported, KITV said.
The initial call about shots fired at the hotel first came around 5:40 p.m. local time Saturday, Honolulu police Capt. Brian Lynch told KITV.
About five shots were fired from inside a guest room on the 4th floor, Lynch told KITV. The gunman shot through the door of one of the rooms when hotel security responded.
Police negotiators had tried communicating with the man, Lynch told KITV.
The suspect might have family members staying at the resort, but he was alone in the room when police entered Sunday, Lynch said. The hotel and immediate area had been evacuated during the standoff, the Kahala Hotel and Resort said in a statement.
“We are deeply saddened by the tragedy that occurred last night on our property and we are focused on supporting our guests and employees at this time,” the hotel said.
The hotel said staff are working with law enforcement as they conduct their investigation.

Israel appears to confirm it carried out cyberattack on Iran nuclear facility | Iran | The Guardian

Israel appeared to confirm claims that it was behind a cyber-attack on Iran’s main nuclear facility on Sunday, which Tehran’s nuclear energy chief described as an act of terrorism that warranted a response against its perpetrators.

The apparent attack took place hours after officials at the Natanz reactor restarted spinning advanced centrifuges that could speed up the production of enriched uranium, in what had been billed as a pivotal moment in the country’s nuclear program.

The shutdown happened hours after Natanz reactor’s new centrifuges were started

Republicans slam Biden plan to send cash payments to Central America: ‘This is madness’ | Fox News

Republicans are reacting with anger and disbelief to a proposal by the Biden administration to send cash payments to Central America as a way to combat the migrant crisis — describing the plan as “madness.”

Reuters reported Friday that the U.S. is considering a “conditional cash transfer program” to address what the White House believes are the economic woes that lead migrants to make the journey to the U.S. southern border. The plan also involves sending COVID-19 vaccines to the countries in Central  America.

If it ain’t broke, Joe Biden will break it: Goodwin

The sage advice that “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” is older than Joe Biden, but apparently he never heard of it. Or doesn’t think much of it.

The president is on a tear, as in tearing up arrangements that were achieving their objectives. His early results are disastrous.

In an act of astonishing foolishness, Biden created a humanitarian and public safety crisis on our southern border by dismantling a successful policy structure that took years to achieve. In the Mideast, he looks determined to undo the Arab-Israeli alliance Donald Trump forged by returning to the failed policies Biden helped to implement in the Obama-Biden administration.

If that were all, it would be more than enough. But it’s not all.

Biden also wants to end the Senate filibuster and took the first step toward packing the Supreme Court. Those two moves are so destructive that even Sen. Mitt Romney, who usually saves his criticism for fellow Republicans, drew the line.

Ramsey Clark, attorney general under Johnson, dies at 93 – POLITICO

NEW YORK — Ramsey Clark, the attorney general in the Johnson administration who became an outspoken activist for unpopular causes and a harsh critic of U.S. policy, has died. He was 93.

Clark, whose father, Tom Clark, was attorney general and U.S. Supreme Court justice, died on Friday at his Manhattan home, a family member, Sharon Welch, announced to media outlets including The New York Times and The Washington Post.

After serving in President Lyndon Johnson’s Cabinet in 1967 and ’68, Clark set up a private law practice in New York in which he championed civil rights, fought racism and the death penalty, and represented declared foes of the United States including former Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic and Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman. He also defended former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein.

New York civil rights attorney Ron Kuby, who worked with Clark on numerous cases, called the death “very, very sad in a season of losses.”

“The progressive legal community has lost its elder dean and statesman,” Kuby said. “Over many generations, Ramsey Clark was a principled voice, conscience and a fighter for civil and human rights.”
