Politico Cuts Live Feed as Protester with Handcuffs Tries to Arrest Dick Cheney

Source: Raw Story

Politico’s live stream of an interview with Dick Cheney and his family cut to black on Monday just as a protester with handcuffs accused the former vice president of being a war criminal.

Host Mike Allen began the “Politico Playbook” event by asking Dick Cheney, his wife Lynne, and his daughter Liz if they talked about politics at home.

After Lynne Cheney took a jab at Hillary Clinton by saying that she was not “dead broke” when her husband was nominated for vice president in 2000, Liz Cheney complimented her parents for involving their children in politics from an early age.

About that time, someone in the audience began to yell that Dick Cheney was a “war criminal,” which caused Lynne Cheney to chuckle.

“Four more years! Four more years!” Liz Cheney shouted.

Man arrested in Utah bomb plot wanted anti-gov't uprising

Jul 11, 2014 9:23 PM EDT

TREMONTON, Utah - Authorities have arrested a 47-year-old Utah man they say wanted to kill police officers and blow up a police department with the hope it would cause an uprising against the government.

The U.S. Attorney's Office in Utah said in a statement late Friday that FBI agents and police in Tremonton arrested John Huggins on Thursday.

FBI Special Agent Steven Cadiz says in court documents that Huggins built an improvised explosive device and possessed explosive materials and instructions for making bombs.

U.S. Attorney's Office spokeswoman Melodie Rydalch says Huggins appeared on a charge of possessing an unregistered destructive device Friday afternoon and will remain in custody until a hearing Tuesday.

Trade Gap in U.S. Shrinks More Than Forecast on Record Exports

By Jeanna Smialek
July 03, 2014 8:30 AM EDT

The trade deficit in the U.S. narrowed more than forecast in May on record exports, signaling a pickup in global growth that will boost American manufacturers.

The gap shrank by 5.6 percent, the biggest drop since November, to $44.4 billion from the prior month’s $47 billion, Commerce Department figures showed today in Washington. The median forecast in a Bloomberg survey of 69 economists called for a contraction to $45 billion. Sales to foreign customers climbed 1 percent on growing demand for autos and parts, petroleum products and aircraft engines.

Economic expansions abroad that are gaining traction will probably continue to invigorate demand for American goods. A narrowing deficit would mean trade becomes less of a drag on gross domestic product in the second quarter after the world’s largest economy contracted in the first three months of 2014.
