Roy Moore promises ‘revelations’ on ‘motivations’ of sexual misconduct allegations

Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore on Saturday again adamantly denied sexual misconduct allegations and promised that “revelations about the motivations” behind the news report of his alleged behavior will come out in a few days. Speaking at a Veterans Day event in the Birmingham area, the Alabama Senate hopeful also questioned why allegations about his behavior 40 years ago are coming out at this time. He said it was politically motivated “fake news.” “Why now?” Moore said. “For 40 years I have been closely scrutinized in the press and the public media.” The answer, he suggested, is that “Democrats and the Republican establishment know the importance of this election. In fact, most people in America know the importance of this election. T...

Fact check: President’s overreach on VA, trade, economy

© The Associated Press President Trump speaks on the final day of the APEC CEO Summit in the central Vietnamese city of Da Nang on Friday. WASHINGTON — Veterans Day prompted President Donald Trump and his administration to take stock of what’s been done to fix health care for those in uniform. They claimed more progress than has been made. That tendency to overreach extended to trade and the economy as Trump visited Japan, South Korea, Japan and then Vietnam, where he told U.S. veterans of the Vietnam War that the Department of Veterans Affairs has made “amazing” strides and already “is a whole new place.” His remarks and a White House account of progress at the VA did not acknowledge old problems that persist. For example, a key effort to improve waiting time...

‘Ellie’ is getting veterans to talk about PTSD

© Provided by CNBC Between 11 percent and 20 percent of veterans suffer from PTSD. PTSD is much higher among Vietnam War vets. New technology is encouraging veterans to talk about PTSD and is allowing their PTSD triggers and treatment progress to be monitored in real time. It turns out that military veterans are willing to talk about stress. They just haven’t been getting access to the right confidantes and a comfortable setting. Ellie is an example. Her ability to press veteran interview subjects to reveal information about their feelings and mental state worked better than the primary method used by the Department of Veteran Affairs. Her secret? Ellie isn’t a bland questionnaire. She isn’t a human, either. Veterans Day in pictures Photo gallery by photo services Develop...

Number of Homeless Veterans Down 40%

Veterans Day in pictures Photo gallery by photo services Efforts to fight homelessness among the veteran community appear to be paying off: The number of homeless veterans was down 40% in 2016 from five years ago, according to the most recent data from Housing and Urban Development. As of January 2016, 39,471 veterans are still homeless. Of these, 13,067 homeless veterans are also unsheltered – living on the streets, in abandoned buildings and cars. While the latest data from HUD won’t be available until the end of the year, preliminary analysis from the Department of Veterans Affairs indicates that 53 communities, including three states — Virginia, Connecticut and Delaware — have “effectively ended” homelessness among the veteran population. © FREDERIC J.

Putin defends Trump, calls collusion suspicion ’empty chatter’

Russian President Vladimir Putin said Saturday that his country is ready to turn the page and “look to the future” in its dealings with the United States. The Russian leader said the fact that he and President Donald Trump didn’t have a full sit-down meeting at a summit in Vietnam as planned shows that the two countries’ relationship is still in a “state of crisis”. But, Putin said at a news conference in Vietnam, Russia is eager to put an end to the prolonged troubled period between the two countries. “We are ready to turn over this page and go further, look to the future, solve problems, which are in the interests of the US people and Russian people.” Trump and Putin had been expected to have a full meeting at the Asia-Pacific Economic Conference (APEC) summit in ...
