Miami police arrest Panama’s ex-president on charges of wiretapping

Police in the United States have arrested Panama’s former president Ricardo Martinelli, who is wanted in the Central American country on charges of using state resources to spy on his political opponents and business rivals. The center-right US-educated businessman won the 2009 presidential election in the country with a landslide, receiving over 60 percent of the national vote. His election prompted positive comments from Washington, because it marked a rare ascent to power of a conservative Latin American leader in a sea of socialist heads of state. But the euphoria did not last long. In 2014, Martinelli was succeeded in the presidency by his Vice President, Juan Carlos Varela. Varela promptly launched nearly 200 criminal investigations against his former political partner on issues ranging from embezzlement of state funds to political espionage.

UK Election Proved the Death of Neoliberalism Is Finally Here

Just last week, prominent U.K. newspaper the Telegraph ran an article entitled “Jeremy Corbyn the mime artist: Don’t vote for the man with no answers.” The opening line – the one line most likely to be read beyond its overly biased title – reads “Jeremy Corbyn is one of the most radical prospective Prime Ministers this country has ever seen.” The same day, this same newspaper ran another article entitled “Jeremy Corbyn is a danger to this nation. At MI6, which I once led, he wouldn’t clear the security vetting.”

Sessions Is Using the Opiate Crisis as an Excuse to Disrupt Medical Marijuana

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has been vocal about his archaic opposition to cannabis. Before and after becoming the nation’s top cop, he expressed his ill-advised distaste for the plant, suggesting “good people don’t smoke marijuana” and bemoaning the possibility that cannabis shops could soon populate grocery stores around the country. Still, earlier this year, Politico reported that he privately told members of Congress he would not be going after states with legal cannabis. This was surprising in light of his past rhetoric, though ultimately predictable considering Congress has been mounting protections for these users for years, and even more bills have been introduced in the legislature since President Trump — and consequently, Sessions — took office.

Qatar Is Running Out Of Dollars

While the Saudi-led campaign to starve Qatar's citizens may end up short of the target, with both Turkey and Iran volunteering to provide needed staples to the isolated Gulf nation while local entrepreneurs have started a cow paradropping campaign to offset the decline in milk imports, a more pressing problem has emerged: Qatar's financial system is running out of dollars. As Bloomberg reports, several Qatari banks have boosted interest rates on dollar deposits to shore up liquidity as the Saudi-led campaign to isolate the gas-rich Arab state intensifies.
