Myanmar's government won a landslide victory in 2015. It may not be so lucky next time

Myanmar’s de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi led her political party to a landslide victory three years ago, ending decades of military-backed rule and raising hopes for democracy. Today, the dominance of her ruling party — the National League for Democracy — is gradually eroding ahead of the country’s next election in 2020.

Suu Kyi, who is officially barred from the presidency but still rules as State Counselor through trusted proxies, has experienced a stunning fall from grace over her mishandling of minority and indigenous groups. Myanmar is dominated by Buddhist-majority Bamars who have long clashed with smaller factions such as the Kachin people, who are mostly Christian, and the Rohingya,a predominantly Muslim community.

Suu Kyi, a Nobel Peace Prize laureate, has been accused of turning a blind eye to the military’s violent persecution against the Rohingya in the state of Rakhine that escalated in August 2017. The state’s brutal crackdown has displaced thousands, triggering a mass exodus of Rohingya refugees to neighboring Bangladesh.

CIA reportedly determines Saudi crown prince ordered Khashoggi's death

The CIA has determined that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ordered the assassination of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, NBC News reported Friday, citing a person briefed on the CIA’s assessment.

The CIA declined NBC News’ request for comment Friday night.

The Washington Post, which first reported the CIA findings, said the U.S. intelligence agency has high confidence in its findings. Khashoggi was a resident of the United States from Saudi Arabia, and he was a columnist for the Washington Post.

The Saudi Embassy in Washington denied the report.

“The claims in this purported assessment are false,” the embassy said in a statement. “We have and continue to hear various theories without seeing the primary basis for these speculations.”

Khashoggi died after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, on Oct. 2. Saudi Arabia has said that Khashoggi died in an altercation at the consulate, but its explanations around the journalist’s death have changed more than once.

Trump directly attacks Fed Chairman Powell, saying ‘Obama had zero’ interest rates

President Donald Trump directly accused Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell of endangering the U.S. economy by raising interest rates, according to The Wall Street Journal. “I’m just saying this: I’m very unhappy with the Fed because Obama had zero interest rates,” Trump told the Journal on Tuesday. “Every time we do something great, he raises the interest rates.” The president said Powell “almost looks like he’s happy raising interest rates,” but declined to elaborate, according to the Journ

Trump directly attacks Fed Chairman Powell, saying 'Obama had zero' interest rates

President Donald Trump directly accused Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell of endangering the U.S. economy by raising interest rates, according to The Wall Street Journal.

“I’m just saying this: I’m very unhappy with the Fed because Obama had zero interest rates,” Trump told the Journal on Tuesday. “Every time we do something great, he raises the interest rates.”

The president said Powell “almost looks like he’s happy raising interest rates,” but declined to elaborate, according to the Journal.

Trump acknowledged that the Fed is traditionally independent of political influence, the Journal reported, but he still pressed his attacks and appears to view the United States’ current economic performance as a competition between himself and President Barack Obama.

Pressure on Saudi Arabia over Jamal Khashoggi may escalate, bring pain

With Saudi Arabia denying a role in the sudden disappearance of a prominent journalist — and vowing to push back against any effort at international retribution — the chances are growing that the crisis could escalate, and ricochet across the global economy.

On Sunday, the world reacted to last week’s vanishing of Jamal Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist and critic of the Saudi Government. The West has threatened consequences for the kingdom, which is suspected of having captured the journalist at a Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

The governments of the United Kingdom, France and Germany on Sunday called for a “credible investigation to establish the truth about what happened, and — if relevant — to identify those bearing responsibility for the disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi, and ensure that they are held to account.”

Although Saudi Arabia has fiercely denied any involvement, reports suggest Riyadh may been behind Khashoggi’s disappearance, with Turkey airing suspicions that the journalist may have been killed by Saudi operatives.

'I would not associate Jay Powell with craziness,' says IMF's Christine Lagarde

International Monetary Fund managing director Christine Lagarde said Thursday she “would not associate” U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell “with craziness.”

“I would not associate Jay Powell with craziness. No, no, he comes across, and members of his board, as extremely serious, solid and certainly keen to base their decisions on actual information, and decide to communicate that properly,” she said, speaking to CNBC at the IMF and World Bank annual meetings in Bali, Indonesia.

Lagarde made the comment in response to a question from CNBC’s Geoff Cutmore about U.S. President Donald Trump. The American leader knocked the Fed on Wednesday for continuing to raise interest rates despite some recent market turbulence.

“I think the Fed is making a mistake. They are so tight. I think the Fed has gone crazy,” the president said after walking off Air Force One in Erie, Pennsylvania for a rally.

Lagarde added: “All over the world, it is certainly a good principle to have independence of the central banks and of the central bank governors. Certainly we have advocated that in all countries, and I think that the Fed is no exception.”

The founder of Salesforce, Marc Benioff and his wife Lynne Benioff, have agreed to buy Time magazine for $190 million in cash from media and marketing company, Meredith Corporation. The deal is expected to be completed within 30 days, according to a press release by Meredith. “The Benioffs are purchasing TIME personally and the transaction is unrelated to Salesforce.com, where Mr. Benioff is Chairman, co-CEO and founder,” according to the release.

Salesforce Founder Marc Benioff makes deal to buy Time Magazine for $190 million

The founder of Salesforce, Marc Benioff and his wife Lynne Benioff, have agreed to buy Time magazine for $190 million in cash from media and marketing company, Meredith Corporation.

The deal is expected to be completed within 30 days, according to a press release by Meredith.

“The Benioffs are purchasing TIME personally and the transaction is unrelated to Salesforce.com, where Mr. Benioff is Chairman, co-CEO and founder,” according to the release.

The Benioffs “will not be involved in the day-to-day operations or journalistic decisions, which will continue to be led by TIME’s current executive leadership team,” the release said.

“The power of Time has always been in its unique storytelling of the people & issues that affect us all & connect us all,” Benioff tweeted on Sunday. “A treasure trove of our history & culture. We have deep respect for their organization & honored to be stewards of this iconic brand,” he said on Twitter.

Another high-profile technology CEO, Jeff Bezos of Amazon, acquired the Washington Post in 2013. U.S. President Donald Trump has made the newspaper a frequent target of angry twitter outbursts.

Benioff says he is neither a Democrat nor a Republican, though he publicly supported Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election.

Meredith completed its purchase of Time at the end of January 2018. Soon after its completion, Meredith said it was selling Time’s news and sports brands to focus on other brands that served its core target audience: American women.

“On behalf of the entire TIME team, we are very excited to begin this next chapter in our history,” said Time Editor-in-Chief Edward Felsenthal. “We can’t imagine better stewards for TIME than Marc and Lynne Benioff.”

Cohen is willing to make that assertion to special counsel Robert Mueller, NBC said. Mueller is investigating whether the Trump campaign colluded with the Kremlin during the U.S. presidential election.

U.S. intelligence services are in broad agreement that Russia directly interfered with the election.

Two nominees are now Trump's greatest focus for top court, NBC News says

None of the four contenders being considered as President Donald Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court has been excluded, but the greatest focus has fallen on two candidates: Brett Kavanaugh and Thomas Hardiman, a source with first-hand knowledge of the process told NBC News.

Kavanaugh sits on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals. Hardiman is a judge on the 3rd Circuit of Appeals.

The other two front-runners are Amy Coney Barrett Barrett of the 7th Circuit of Appeals and Raymond Kethledge of the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals.

CNBC reported last week that Trump privately indicated to a small group that he had settled on a nominee to succeed Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court, according to a person with direct knowledge of the matter.

During the July 4 picnic at the White House, Trump suggested to friends and some external advisors that he had already made up his mind about whom he will pick to join the high court, the person said on the condition of anonymity due to the sensitive nature of the ongoing deliberations.

That source, along with another person familiar with the negotiations, said the president gave strong indications that he prefers Kavanaugh.

US economic advisor Larry Kudlow in good condition following heart attack, White House says

White House economic advisor Larry Kudlow, an important voice in U.S. trade policy, suffered a heart attack and is in good condition at Walter Reed Medical Center.

“Earlier today National Economic Council Director and Assistant to the President Larry Kudlow, experienced what his doctors say was a very mild heart attack,” Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters on Monday evening.

“Larry is currently in good condition at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, and his doctors expect he will make a full and speedy recovery. The President and his Administration send their thoughts and prayers to Larry and his family,” she said.

U.S. President Donald Trump tweeted the news earlier on Monday evening ET, literally only minutes before a historic meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un:

Kudlow, a former CNBC contributor and Wall Street economist, has played a leading role in crafting policy toward America’s major trade partners, including China.

Just last weekend, Kudlow accused Canada of directing “polarizing” comments toward the United States following a fractious G-7 meeting of advanced economies. The conclave in Quebec pitted the United States against most of its traditional allies, which are trying to head off a full-blown trade war.

“Here’s the thing,” he told CNN, speaking of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. “He really kind of stabbed us in the back.”

But personal health concerns for Kudlow are unlikely to alter ongoing talks between the United States its global commerce partners, said Vishnu Varathan, head of economics and strategy at Mizuho Bank.

“I probably would venture to answer that it wouldn’t materially affect anything around the trade talks,” Varathan said. The U.S. is negotiating trade disagreements with the European Union, China and NAFTA partners including Mexico, among others.

“A lot of the trade thoughts and the trade motivations were formed long before Larry Kudlow joined the team,” Varathan said. “They were already formed. You’ve got people like (trade advisor) Peter Navarro and all — hawkish views on trade.”

In a series of Twitter posts late Tuesday evening and early Wednesday, Roseanne Barr apologized for a racist tweet that led to the cancellation of her hit television show.

The comedian then retweeted messages from supporters who defend the tweet that got her show canceled.

Barr tweeted: “hey guys, don’t defend me, it’s sweet of you 2 try, but…losing my show is 0 compared 2 being labelled a racist over one tweet-that I regret even more.”

But that sentiment contrasted with many retweets from the comedian. Her Twitter timeline shows that, before and after asking fans not to defend her, she retweeted messages suggesting Barr’s critics are hypocritical or otherwise defending her original, racist remarks.

Barr also retweeted a post from a user who said her “apology is not sincere.”
