Graham declines to condemn racist Trump tweets and calls Democratic congresswomen ‘a bunch of communists’ – CNNPolitics

Washington (CNN)Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, one of President Donald Trump’s strongest allies on Capitol Hill, declined on Monday to condemn the President over his racist tweets against several minority members of Congress, instead calling them a “bunch of communists.”

Graham’s comments, which were later tweeted out by Trump, are the latest example of congressional Republican alignment with Trump in the face of fierce controversy.
“Well, we all know that (New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez) and this crowd are a bunch of communists, they hate Israel, they hate our own country,” Graham said during an appearance on “Fox and Friends.” “They’re calling the guards along our border, the border patrol agents, ‘concentration camp guards.’ They accuse people who support Israel of doing it for the Benjamins. They’re anti-Semitic. They’re anti-America.”

(Politico) – The deployment will bring the total force on the border mission to 6,600.

The new active-duty troops will arrive “in the next several weeks” and will provide “aerial surveillance, operational, logistical, and administrative support” to Customs and Border Patrol, Pentagon spokesperson Maj. Chris Mitchell said in a statement.

The increase in active-duty forces is required due to a “shortfall in volunteer National Guard personnel” conducting the same missions, Mitchell said.

Mayor under fire for last-minute cancellation of LGBTQ pride event

Reading, Pennsylvania, Mayor Wally Scott said he axed the event because the rainbow pride flag — which was set to fly over City Hall — is a political symbol.

Dozens of Pennsylvanians were geared to make history Monday evening by raising the pride flag for the first time over Reading City Hall. Yet minutes before the event was slated to begin, the city’s mayor, Wally Scott, prohibited council members and city employees via text message from hanging the flag.

“People were disappointed at first, then they just became angry,” Ben Renkus, president of the Reading Pride Celebration, the group that planned the event, told NBC News. “The event was at 4:45 p.m. and many people had to leave work early to attend.”

Hottest weather of season on tap for Northeast as record-challenging heat wave builds

As a heat wave expands over much of the eastern two-thirds of the nation, the northeastern United States will share in the summer swelter with record highs, the hottest weather so far in 2019, and AccuWeather RealFeel® Temperatures well above 100 F.

While temperatures may be briefly held back in areas that receive a thorough drenching as Barry moves through into Thursday, intense July sunshine, combined with a northward retreat of the jet stream will allow an impressive heat wave to build even for midsummer standards.

In the northern U.S., a heat wave is generally that which brings three or more days in a row with highs of 90 F.

“The combination of sunshine, temperature, humidity levels and other factors will push AccuWeather RealFeel® Temperatures well into the danger level past 105 degrees during the late morning and afternoon hours,” according to AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Brett Anderson.
