US Military Options On North Korea ‘Very Ugly’:

Despite new threats from the Trump administration, the US still has no real, practical military option on North Korea, analysts say.

After Pyongyang tested a nuclear weapon Sunday, US Defense Secretary James Mattis said the US has “many military options” on North Korea and threatened Pyongyang with “a massive military response” if a US territory or US allies are targeted.
But any US military action puts millions of civilians in the South Korean capital of Seoul at risk, analysts say, and is therefore very unlikely to happen.
“We always have military options, but they’re very ugly,” said Mark Hertling, a retired US Army general and CNN military analyst.

Tax Reform Near The Top Of Congress’ Lengthy To-Do List:

When lawmakers return this week from the August recess, they’ll face a bevy of must-do tasks, but chief among them is a long-held Republican agenda item: comprehensive tax reform.

Enthusiasm levels are high for the mountainous challenge, as tax reform is a widely popular idea, and Republicans are desperate for a major legislative accomplishment they can tout in next year’s midterm elections. And it would be major: The last time Congress successfully passed a comprehensive tax overhaul was in 1986.

Hurricane Irma is churning west across the Atlantic, putting parts of the Caribbean on watch and prompting warnings for the US mainland to be prepared should the storm head that way.

Sunday evening Irma was traversing the ocean as Category 3 hurricane, with winds of 115 mph (185 kmh). It is expected to pick up strength over the next 48 hours, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) said.
Irma’s center was about 625 miles east of the Leeward Islands, a group of islands in the West Indies that start east of Puerto Rico, the NHC said.

Ivanka Trump’s Doublespeak On Equal Pay Is Selling Out women:

The White House announced this week it will no longer require businesses with more than 100 employees to collect data on salaries by race, ethnicity and gender. The administration issued a statement by Ivanka Trump, claiming that the rule implemented by the Obama administration “would not yield the intended results.”

“We look forward to continuing to work with the (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission), (Office of Management and Budget), Congress and all relevant stakeholders on robust policies aimed at eliminating the gender wage gap,” the first daughter said.
But she didn’t explain why she thinks the rule wouldn’t work.
