China’s Xi says he wants to work out initial trade deal with U.S. – Reuters

Economists warn that a prolonged trade dispute between the world’s two largest economies is elevating risks to the global economy by disrupting supply chains, curtailing investment and curbing business confidence.

Completion of a phase one deal could slide into next year, trade experts and people close to the White House have told Reuters, with Beijing asking for more extensive tariff rollbacks and Washington countering with increased demands of its own.

“We want to work for a ‘phase one’ agreement on the basis of mutual respect and equality,” Xi told representatives of an international forum, according to a pool report.

Former Fox Anchor Shepard Smith Donates Half a Million to Press Freedom Group

Former Fox News anchor Shepard Smith made a surprise donation of $500,000 to the nonprofit Committee to Protect Journalists during a speech Thursday night in which he did not mention Donald Trump by name, but alluded to him on multiple occasions. “Intimidation and vilification of the press is now a global phenomenon,” Smith said. “We don’t have to look far for evidence of that.” The speech at the International Press Freedom Awards dinner was the first public appearance for Smith since he abruptly left the channel last month. “We know that journalists are sometimes wary of being perceived as activists for some cause,” he said. “But press freedom is not the preserve of one political group or one political party. It’s a value embedded in our very foundational documents. Journalists need to join hands to defend it.” Smith was a founding staffer of Fox News, where he worked for the last 23 years.

Utah Woman Charged With Lewdness After Being Topless In Her Own Home : NPR

The case is the latest legal battle amid a broader “free the nipple” campaign that seeks to normalize the exposure of female nipples.

A Utah woman has been charged with lewdness in her own home after her stepchildren walked into the room and saw her bare chest.

Attorneys for the American Civil Liberties Union of Utah argued this week that the statute under which Tilli Buchanan, 27, was charged is unconstitutional, and they have asked a judge to drop the charges against her and change the state law.

Buchanan and her husband had been installing drywall in the garage and had taken off their shirts that were itchy from the fibers, she told The Salt Lake Tribune.

When her stepchildren, aged 9, 10 and 13, walked in, she “explained she considers herself a feminist and wanted to make a point that everybody should be fine with walking around their house or elsewhere with skin showing,” her lawyers wrote in court documents, The Associated Press reports.

FBI seeks interview with whistleblower who triggered impeachment inquiry

The FBI is seeking an interview with a CIA whistleblower whose complaint led to an impeachment inquiry into whether President Trump abused his office in his dealings with the Ukrainian president, according to three people familiar with the matter.

A special agent with the bureau’s Washington Field Office contacted one of the whistleblower’s lawyers last month, and the FBI and the legal team have traded messages since, said two of the individuals, all of whom spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss a sensitive matter.

No date for an interview has been set, and it is not clear whether one will be, the people said.

Senate sends fight over Pennsylvania’s minimum wage to House | WTAJ – www.wearecentralpa.com

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Legislation to raise Pennsylvania’s minimum wage for the first time since 2009 is headed to the state House of Representatives, passed in the Senate against a deadline to stall Gov. Tom Wolf’s regulatory package to substantially expand overtime pay eligibility.

The Republican-controlled Senate approved the bill Wednesday, 42-7, to raise Pennsylvania’s minimum wage in four steps to $9.50 in 2022.

Pennsylvania’s current minimum wage is the federal minimum of $7.25, which lags each of its neighbors and most other states.

The candidates will take the stage in Atlanta after the latest Iowa caucus poll showed Pete Buttigieg as a front-runner with Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden tied for second place.

The fifth Democratic primary debate convenes 10 candidates on stage Wednesday night in Georgia, a state trending more purple due in part to shifting demographics, as the splintered field struggles to confront the party’s mounting concerns over defeating President Donald Trump and more Democrats both formally and potentially join the fold.

Devin Nunes’ opening remarks at November 20 public impeachment hearing – CNNPolitics

Nune’s Remarks:

As I’ve noted before, the Democrats on this committee spent three years accusing President Trump of being a Russian agent. In March 2018, after a year-long investigation, Committee Republicans issued a 240-page report describing in detail how the Russians meddled in the 2016 elections and making specific recommendations to improve our election security.
Denouncing the report as a whitewash and accusing Republicans of “subverting” the investigation, the Democrats issued their own report focusing on their now-debunked conspiracy theory that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to hack the elections.
Notably, the Democrats vowed to present a further “comprehensive report” after they finished their investigation into Trump’s treasonous collusion with Russia. For some completely inexplicable reason, after the implosion of their Russia hoax, the Democrats failed to issue that comprehensive report.
This episode shows how the Democrats have exploited the Intelligence Committee for political purposes for three years, culminating in these impeaching hearings. In their mania to attack the President, no conspiracy theory is too outlandish for the Democrats.
Time and again, they floated the possibility of some far-fetched malfeasance by Trump, declared the dire need to investigate it, and then suddenly dropped the issue and moved on to their next asinine theory.

VEGAN SUES BURGER KING

A Georgia man who is vegan has sued Burger King for false advertising, alleging the burger chain “duped” customers into eating Impossible Whoppers by not adequately disclosing that the plant-based patties are cooked with beef fat. The lawsuit is seeking class-action status.

According to the complaint filed in a federal court in Florida on Monday, Phillip Williams of Georgia said he visited an Atlanta Burger King in August and ordered an Impossible Whopper, which, when prepared without mayonnaise, he believed conformed to his “strict vegan diet.” Williams was unaware that Impossible Whoppers are by default “cooked on the same grills as its traditional meat-based products, creating a meat-free patty that is in fact covered in meat by-product,” the lawsuit alleges.
