Boeing shuts 787 plant in South Carolina as hurricane approaches

Boeing shuts 787 plant in South Carolina as hurricane approachesIn advance of workers evacuating the facility, Boeing flew several 787 Dreamliners from the South Carolina factory across the country to an airport near Boeing’s widebody plant in Everett, Washington, north of Seattle, Boeing spokeswoman Libba Holland said. Hurricane Florence grew on Tuesday and was expected to bring days of rain, deadly flooding and power outages lasting weeks after it slams into the U.S. Southeast coast this week. Winds of up to 130 miles per hour (215 km per hour) and massive waves will pound coastal North and South Carolina when Florence makes landfall on Friday, and its rains will take a heavy toll for miles inland, the National Hurricane Center said.


Lindsey Graham urged Donald Trump to support assassinating Kim Jong Un, Woodward book says

Lindsey Graham urged Donald Trump to support assassinating Kim Jong Un, Woodward book saysAt one point not too long ago in American history — as in, last year — it appeared as though increasing tensions with North Korea could escalate into a full-blown conflict. Under Kim Jong Un’s regime, the hermit kingdom was testing intercontinental ballistic missiles at an unprecedented rate, while Donald Trump was attacking the dictator as “Rocket Man” in tweets and a major speech at the United Nations, in which he threatened to “totally destroy” North Korea if further provoked. According to journalist Bob Woodward’s new book Fear: Trump in the White House, Lindsey Graham offered a bizarre solution to the chaos during a national security meeting the president had assembled in 2017: urge the Chinese government to assassinate the North Korean leader, and instead install a military general who “they control”.
