North Korea Warns Of 'Adding Fuel To Fire' Ahead Of US-South Korea Military Exercise
Just one day before the United States and South Korea are scheduled to engage in their annual military exercises, known as the Ulchi Freedom Guardian, North Korea issued its newest threat, stating that the U.S. will be "adding fuel to fire" by moving ahead with the planned war games. The military exercises have provoked North Korea in the past, and amid escalating tensions on the peninsula, North Korea’s official Rodong Sinmun newspaper said on Sunday the war games could "worsen the state" of the region, and lead into an "uncontrollable phase of a nuclear war," South Korea's Yonhap News Agency reported.  Fox
VOA VIEW: North Korea threats must be engaged.

Could The Human Remains Found In Aruba Be Natalee Holloway
Human remains recently found in Aruba during the latest search for clues in the disappearance of American student Natalee Holloway 12 years ago has many asking if her family might finally find closure. “It could be her remains, the definitive thing would be doing the DNA tests,” Dr. Michael Baden, former New York City chief medical examiner, told Fox News on Friday. Baden said initial analysis would have told forensics experts whether the remains match in terms of gender, age group, height, and weight, while the further DNA tests would confirm identity. And if the remains prove to be those of Holloway, who was 18 when she disappeared, they could give indications of how she died – and whether she was murdered. Fox

Spain Hunts For Suspected Driver, Two Others In Connection With Barcelona Attack
Spanish authorities on Sunday continued their hunt for a 22-year-old suspect and two others in the brutal vehicle attacks in Barcelona and a nearby coastal city late last week. A police official said the terrorist cell had planned a “much more serious attack” that was probably thwarted by an accidental explosion Wednesday. Authorities were looking for a fugitive they suspect may be Younes Abauyaaqoub, who may have been the driver of the van that plowed through crowds Thursday on Barcelona’s scenic Las Ramblas boulevard. The other two people whom police were seeking might have died Wednesday in the explosion. Washington Post

Bannon's War: How Trump's Alt-Right Hero And Former White House Strategist Plotted His Revenge
Former White House chief strategist Stephen K. Bannon has declared the Trump administration the most divided in history, as reports emerge that he's eyeing the launch of a populist right TV network to rival Fox News. Speaking to the Washington Post Saturday following his departure from the Trump administration, the populist firebrand described a White House divided. “No administration in history has been so divided among itself about the direction about where it should go,” Bannon said, adding that Trump’s base is frustrated by a congressional agenda that has pursued traditional Republican priorities than the agenda Trump championed.

Wreckage Of U.S.S. Indianapolis, Lost For 72 Years, Is Found In The Pacific
In the 72 years since the Indianapolis, a United States Navy cruiser, sank about 12 minutes after being torpedoed by a Japanese submarine, the disaster has inspired controversy, dozens of books, a play and a famous scene in “Jaws.” But the resting place of the Indianapolis had remained a mystery. That was until Saturday, when a team led by Paul G. Allen, the billionaire co-founder of Microsoft, announced that it had found unmistakable wreckage of the Indianapolis 18,000 feet deep in the Philippine Sea, rekindling memories of the Navy’s worst disaster at sea.

Trump Has 'Inside Information' On Who Protested In Charlottesville, Says Falwell Jr. In President's Defense
Evangelical Christian leader Jerry Falwell Jr. defended President Donald Trump's comment that there were "very fine people on both sides" in the Charlottesville protests, saying the president "had information I didn't have" about who participated in the demonstration against removal of a Confederate statue in the Virginia city. "He has inside information that I don't have," Falwell Jr. told ABC News Chief Global Affairs Correspondent Martha Raddatz on "This Week" Sunday. "I don't know if there were historical purists [at the protests] who were trying to preserve some statues. I don't know." The Liberty University president added of the president, "I think he saw videos of who was there. I think he was talking about what he had seen … He had information I didn’t have.”  ABC News

Protesters Flood Streets, And Trump Offers A Measure of Praise
Tens of thousands of demonstrators, emboldened and unnerved by the eruption of fatal violence in Virginia last weekend, surged into the nation’s streets and parks on Saturday to denounce racism, white supremacy and Nazism. Demonstrations were boisterous but broadly peaceful, even as tension and worry coursed through protests from Boston Common, the nation’s oldest public park, to Hot Springs, Ark., and to the bridges that cross the Willamette River in Portland, Ore. Other rallies played out in Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, Memphis and New Orleans, among other cities.  NY Times

No Powerball Winner, Lottery Jackpot Now $650 Million
No one won the $535 million Powerball jackpot in Wednesday's drawing. The winning numbers were 17-19-39-43-68, Powerball: 13, PowerPlay: 4X. No tickets matched all six numbers, so the jackpot is now $650 million -- the third largest in U.S. lottery history. The next drawing will be Wednesday night. But don't throw out your tickets yet: Some lotto players in New York still won smaller prizes totaling more than $1.9 million. Second prize: $1 million. Powerball players can win $1 million by matching all five numbers. Zero tickets in New York won the second prize; 8 were sold in California, Florida, Missouri, North Carolina, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Third prize: $50,000. 6 tickets in New York matched four numbers + the Powerball for a $50,000 prize. Syracuse.com

Why Wall Street Is So Fixated On Gary Cohn's Position In The White House
Markets tumbled on Thursday after rumors swirled that Gary Cohn, President Donald Trump's top economic adviser and formerly Goldman Sach's number two, was resigning. The S&P 500 slumped at around 10 a.m. ET, after the rumors began swirling on Twitter. Gold, a traditional safe haven trade, climbed as investors pulled into safety assets. The White House denied this was happening, and Cohn (as of the time this post was written) was still in. Still, Wall Street's jitteriness reflects fears that a Cohn departure would stifle some of the administration's business-friendly ideas. Business Insider
VOA VIEW: The liberals would like to see Cohn gone.

Alexa Finally Listens For Fire TV. It Was Worth The Wait
Amazon added Alexa to its popular TV-connected streaming devices, the Fire TV box and Fire TV stick, way back in 2015, but it wasn't the Alexa most people know and love. Instead of being able to say, "Alexa, what's the weather?" into thin air, you had to speak into the remote while holding a button, walkie-talkie style. It worked, but felt far less futuristic than "real" Alexa on an Echo speaker. Now, nearly two years later, Fire TV owners can finally command their devices with a simple "Alexa..." command, without having to use any remote. To do so, you have to own an Echo, Echo Dot or Echo Show speaker. So how does it work? In short: very well. I commanded the various currently compatible Fire TV devices -- a $40 Fire TV stick, a $90 Fire TV box and an Element Fire TV edition television (starting at $450) -- with just my voice, hands-free, and came away impressed.

Asian-American Doctor Says White Nationalists Refuse Her Care
Dr. Esther Choo is an Asian-American emergency room physician who has practiced medicine for more than a decade. Yet, she says, a few times a year, a patient will refuse to let her treat them. Solely because of her race. Choo, who works in Oregon, first shared her experience of dealing with racist patients who shun her care in a viral Twitter thread last Sunday.  CNN

Jared And Ivanka Are Failing A Basic Moral Test
I first heard the silence late Tuesday night, while pecking at my phone, waiting for Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump to denounce President Donald Trump's latest comments on neo-Nazis after the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, and the death and mayhem that resulted. After the President tried to compare neo-Nazis to what he described as the "alt-left," saying "I think there is blame on both sides," there was still no outcry from Jared or Ivanka. Slowly, as the hours ticked away, the silence descended. Many think of silence as the absence of noise, but that's only one type of silence. There is a different, darker variety, one Jews and African-Americans have gotten to know well over the centuries. This silence doesn't suppress sound -- it amplifies it. It is the boom of the MS St. Louis departing for Nazi-threatened Europe after being denied entry by port after port. It's the whisk-whisk of Southern belles fanning themselves at the slave auction. It's the presence of apathy amid injustice and horror. Google News

Preserving Ties With Trump Bigger Priority Than Denouncing Neo-Nazis
As anger mounted in Israel last week over President Donald Trump’s and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s response to the white supremacist violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, the country’s communications minister urged Israelis to prioritize their support for Trump over their denunciation of neo-Nazis. Speaking to The Jerusalem Post on Thursday, Ayoub Kara, who was handpicked for his ministerial role by Netanyahu in May, said that Israel must defend Trump, who he described as the “best U.S. leader Israel has ever had.” But Trump is the best U.S. leader Israel has ever had. His relations with the prime minister of Israel are wonderful, and after enduring the terrible years of Obama, Trump is the unquestioned leader of the free world, and we must not accept anyone harming him.” Huffington Post
VOA VIEW: The liberal media is wrong, again.

H.R. McMaster Endorsed Book That Advocates Quran-Kissing Apology Ceremonies
A book on terrorism endorsed and touted by H.R. McMaster, the embattled White House National Security Adviser, calls on the U.S. military to respond to any “desecrations” of the Quran by service members with an apology ceremony, and advocates kissing a new copy of the Quran before presenting the Islamic text to the local Muslim public. The book’s author further demanded that any American soldier who “desecrates” the Quran be ejected from the foreign country of deployment, relieved of duty and turned over to a military judge for “punishment.” “Desecration” of the Quran, according to the McMaster-endorsed book, includes such acts as “letting the Quran fall to the ground during a search, or more blatant instances.”  Breitbart

CNN’s Stelter Questions Trump’s Mental Fitness
Sunday on CNN’s “Reliable Sources,” host Brian Stelter asked if President Donald Trump was fit to serve as president of the United States. Stelter said, “People are questioning the president’s fitness.” He continued, “Questions that feel out of bounds, off limits, too hot for TV. Questions like these: Is the President of the United States a racist? Is he suffering from some kind of illness? Is he fit for office? And if he’s unfit, then what?” He added, “Since President Trump’s inauguration, there’s been a lot of tiptoeing going on. His actions have been described as unpresidential, unhinged and sometimes even crazy. That word crazy can be interpreted several different ways. It gets said more in private than it gets said on TV.” Breitbart
VOA VIEW: CNN and Stelter are very liberal and anti Trump.

Entertainment Legend Jerry Lewis Dead At Age 91 —
Entertainment legend Jerry Lewis has died at his home in Las Vegas. He was 91. His family confirmed his death Sunday morning: “Famed comedian, actor and legendary entertainer Jerry Lewis passed away peacefully today of natural causes at 91 at his home in Las Vegas with his family by his side.” According to the family, Lewis died at 9:15 a.m. He was the son of entertainers —Danny Levitch, a song-and-dance man, and Rae Levitch, a pianist, who performed with the surname Lewis when performing vaudeville acts. In 1946, Lewis co-starred in a nightclub act with Dean Martin, who would later become part of Las Vegas’ Rat Pack. In the act, Martin was calm, singing unflappably; Lewis was jittery, scampering manically. After pratfalls Lewis would utter his trademark, “Hey, lay-dee!” Las Vegas Review

Is Google Working With Liberal Groups To Snuff Out Conservative Websites?
Google revealed in a blog post that it is now using machine learning to document "hate crimes and events" in America. They've partnered with liberal groups like ProPublica, BuzzFeed News, and the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) to make information about "hate events" easily accessible to journalists. And now, there are troubling signs that this tool could be used to ferret out writers and websites that run afoul of the progressive orthodoxy. In the announcement, Simon Rogers, data editor of Google News Labs, wrote: Now, with ProPublica, we are launching a new machine learning tool to help journalists covering hate news leverage this data in their reporting. PJ Media
VOA VIEW: Google is too big.
