Hurricane Deployments Stretch US Military Thin
The extended deployment of military cargo jets and Navy ships to help with Hurricane Maria and Hurricane Irma relief efforts is causing military planners to scramble and recalculate future deployments all the way from Afghanistan to the Korean Peninsula, according to several defense officials familiar with discussions underway inside the Defense Department. Due to security concerns, officials refused to discuss specific changes in deployment timelines or the units involved, but sketched out how they could impact overseas deployments into 2018. Defense Secretary James Mattis spoke about the challenge publicly for the first time Tuesday, testifying before the Senate Armed Services Committee that the military will stay in Puerto Rico as long as needed:  CNN

Tropical Storm Nate: New Orleans Mayor Plans To Impose Curfew Amid Evacuation Orders
After declaring a state of emergency for New Orleans earlier this week, the city’s mayor announced plans on Friday to impose a curfew in the city this weekend amid a threat from Tropical Storm Nate. Nate has already been blamed for 22 deaths in Nicaragua and Costa Rica. The city’s mayor, Mitch Landrieu, said residents who live outside the city’s levee system or in low-lying areas should move to higher ground. “There is no need to panic,” he tweeted. “Be ready and prepare. Get a plan. Prepare to protect your personal property.” Evacuations were ordered Thursday for parts of Louisiana, including St. Bernard Parish east of New Orleans. Fox

Tillerson chaos lays bare Kelly's struggle to manage White House
As early morning news headlines blared Wednesday that President Donald Trump's top diplomat had insulted the President's intelligence, the man hired by Trump to rein in West Wing chaos found himself caught between his boss and his ally. The President was so furious at the situation, multiple sources told CNN, that chief of staff John Kelly was forced to navigate between two men who are, at this point, fed up with each other. Kelly suggested to the President in a nuanced way that if Secretary of State Rex Tillerson left, the retired general's own ability to do his job properly could be at risk, sources familiar with the conversation said.

Chicago Woman's Freezer Death An Accident, Coroner Rules
A young Chicago woman whose body was found in a hotel's walk-in freezer last month died accidentally, a coroner has ruled.

Topiramate is prescribed for a range of conditions, but is most commonly used to treat epilepsy and migraines. Jenkins, 19, was last seen early Saturday, September 9, at a party at the Crowne Plaza Chicago O'Hare Hotel. Her family reported her missing later that day, and Jenkins' body was found in the walk-in freezer at the hotel shortly before 1 a.m. on Sunday, September 10. CNN

European Ambassadors Go To Capitol Hill To Try To Save Iran Deal
A group of European ambassadors trying to save the Iran Deal made a pilgrimage to Capitol Hill to make their case before Congress that the agreement to curb and track Iran's nuclear program should be kept in place. The ambassadors from the U.K., E.U., France and Germany met with at least 30 senators to lay out the case and said that there is a "lot of misunderstanding" about the deal on the Hill. They felt they had made a convincing argument for preserving the agreement. CBS News

ATF Unlikely To Crack Down On Rapid-Fire Bump Stocks
Did the National Rifle Association just shake lose the partisan logjam on guns or send the debate to an eventual dead end? As momentum grows on Capitol Hill to ban bump stocks, the rapid-fire gun modifications tied to the Las Vegas shooting, lawmakers are facing two paths to action — regulation or legislation. The future of bump stocks may be decided by which course officials take. The NRA is hoping to head off new legislation by calling on the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to strengthen regulations on bump stocks through "the existing federal gun laws," as the NRA's chief executive, Wayne LaPierre, said on Fox News Thursday night.

Still No Clear Motive For Las Vegas Attack
The gunman who opened fire on a country music festival in Las Vegas did not have help from a second attacker, officials said Friday, but it remains unclear whether he made anyone else aware of his plans in advance. Police investigators and more than 100 Federal Bureau of Investigation agents have combed through hundreds of leads and hours of video from the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino to determine why Stephen Paddock, 64, opened fire on the Route 91 Harvest Festival, leaving 58 people dead and nearly 500 others injured.

Trump Proclaims Columbus Day, Without Obama's Qualms
President Donald Trump is proclaiming Monday as Columbus Day — without any of his predecessor's qualms.

Religious Right Claims 2 Victories
In aone-two punch elating religious conservatives, President Trump’s administration is allowing more employers to opt out of no-cost birth control for workers and issuing sweeping religious-freedom directions that could override many antidiscrimination protections for LGBT people and others. At a time when Trump finds himself embattled on many fronts, the two directives — issued almost simultaneously on Friday — demonstrated the president’s eagerness to retain the loyalty of social conservatives who make up a key part of his base. Leaders of that constituency were exultant. Philadelphia Inquirer

New Orleans Starts Evacuations As Deadly Storm Nate Approaches
New Orleans evacuated some residents from areas outside its levee system as Tropical Storm Nate swirled toward the U.S. Gulf Coast on Friday after killing at least 25 people in Central America.

The greatest threat from this particular storm is not rain, but strong winds and storm surge, Landrieu said.  NY Post

Trump Advisers Float CIA Director Pompeo To Replace Tillerson
White House advisers are floating the idea of replacing Secretary of State Rex Tillerson — whose prickly relationship with President Trump came to a head this week — with CIA Director Mike Pompeo, according to a report. Axios reported that Pompeo is one of the few people Trump spends a lot of time with on a daily basis and is one of the few people in the administration who can deliver tough news to the president. Pompeo also would have credibility with world leaders because he is firmly ensconced in Trump’s inner circle — something that can’t be said about Tillerson, according to the news site. NY Post

Hurricanes Harvey and Irma are long gone, and despite dire predictions, they did not dampen the September jobs report in most key areas.

Trump Undermines U.S. Birth Control Coverage Requirement
President Donald Trump’s administration on Friday undermined requirements under the Obamacare law that employers provide insurance to cover women’s birth control, keeping a campaign pledge that pleased his conservative Christian supporters.

The Horrifying Cost Of A North Korea Nuke Attack
One single reliable warhead fired by North Korea could destroy densely populated cities, killing millions. Those who aren’t killed in a nuclear blast would be left with devastating injuries while their cities would be flattened. A detailed analysis by 38 North, at the US-Korea Institute at Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies, has revealed what would happen if Kim Jong Un did the unthinkable and actually fired a nuclear weapon. In “A Hypothetical Nuclear Attack on Seoul and Tokyo: The Human Cost of War on the Korean Peninsula,” Michael J. Zagurek paints a terrifying picture of the damage it could cause. NY Post

Hurricanes Batter Jobs Numbers As Employers Drop 33,000 Positions
For the first time in seven years, the U.S. economy didn't create any jobs last month. In fact, it lost 33,000 of them. A new employment report published Friday fell well short of expectations, as American businesses shed payrolls for the first time since Sept. 2010, when the labor market was still crawling out of the Great Recession. Almost all of the losses, however, were concentrated in the leisure and hospitality sector, leading many to believe the impact of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria are to blame. Leisure and hospitality employment dropped by 111,000 last month, more than offsetting positive jobs performance in other sectors. US News & World Report

Disgraced Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who abandoned his post in Afghanistan and was held prisoner by the Taliban for five years, is expected to plead guilty to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy.

A mother in the US state of Michigan has been sentenced to seven days in jail after she refused a judge's order to have her son vaccinated.
