The settlement with the psychologists, came after a judge last month urged resolving the case before it headed to a jury trial in early September.

Lawyers for the three plaintiffs in the suit – filed in 2015 in Federal District Court in Spokane, Wash. – said the former prisoners were tortured at secret C.I.A. detention sites.

We Must Act Now To Lock Down Our Constitutional Rights

The individual rights guaranteed by the 1st and 2nd Amendments of our Constitution are under attack. A dangerous new movement has emerged in American politics, one that seeks to upend the 225-year tradition that in America laws are made only with the consent of the governed. Many so-called progressives believe that when, sooner or later, they regain control of the White House they can erode and weaken the 1st Amendment rights like free speech and religious freedom as well as the 2nd Amendment's guarantee of the right to bear arms, not by passing legislation, but, through regulations dictated by the President's un-elected bureaucrats in Washington.

Federal Judge Smacks Down DOJ Lawyers Protecting Hillary – Will Review Redacted Clinton Emails

Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch announced Thursday that a federal judge will personally review, on camera, redacted material from Hillary Clinton’s emails during her time as Secretary of State.

Judicial Watch announced today that a federal judge will personally review, in camera, redacted material from emails discussing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of iPads and iPhones during her tenure at the State Department. Judge Kollar-Kotelly also ordered the State Department to file an affidavit addressing why it should not have to search new Clinton emails recovered. In taking these steps, the court rejected arguments by the Tillerson State Department and its lawyers at the Sessions Justice Department.

If North Korea Fires an ICBM, the US Might Have to Shoot It Down Over Russia

Missile-defense physics may require interceptors to fly into ‘the teeth of the Russian early warning net.’

If Pyongyang fires a missile at the United States, its most-likely trajectory would take it over the North Pole. A U.S. attempt to shoot down that missile would probably occur within Russian radar space — and possibly over Russia itself. “It’s something we’re aware of,” Gen. Lori Robinson, who leads both U.S. Northern Command and the North American Aerospace Defense Command, or NORAD, said Wednesday. “It’s something we work our way through.”

By year’s end, the U.S. will have deployed 44 ground-based interceptors, or GBIs: 40 at Fort Greeley, Alaska, and four at Vandenberg Air Force Base, California. If deterrence fails, those interceptors would be the last line of defense against a North Korean missile. Each incoming ICBM might be met with four or more GBIs.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Can someone please tell me, with an absolutely straight face, how such a missile strike is NOT going to be perceived as an act of war against Russia instead?!?

The Prof's math calcs may be "surgically correct"; but the potential optics, and intimations of a US generated war against Russia with such a stunt; holy crud and a half!!

More reason to be a prepper: Aid is arriving by the ton in Puerto Rico, but it’s NOT getting to the people because the logistics chain has been destroyed

Food, fresh water, and basic supplies are arriving by the ton. Thousands of shipping containers brought in by scores of cargo ships are piling up on the docks of Puerto Rico’s main ports, which have been reopening steadily as workers cleared storm debris in Maria’s aftermath.

The problem is that the logistical chain has been destroyed; there’s no way to quickly distribute the tons of food and supplies that are being shipped in, and it’s not clear that food and water will be distributed quickly enough before people start dying.

flashback:12/18/2016: THE ODDS OF LEGALIZED SPORTS BETTING IN DONALD TRUMP'S AMERICA

***
The four major professional sports leagues – the NFL, NBA, Major League Baseball and the NHL – along with the behemoth NCAA, have been the biggest obstacles to sports betting expansion, all often working in concert to wield PASPA as the weapon against such expansion. As Wallach smartly points out, though, the law itself notes that a sports organization can only seek injunctive relief for PASPA violations when that specific organization’s games are the basis of the violation.

In other words, the NFL does not have standing under PASPA to say, “Hey, New Jersey can’t bet on the NBA.” That’s up to the discretion of the NBA, though again, so far, the major sports organizations have played ball together to stifle legalized sports betting –>>>

Government vs. NFL: Organization May Be Forced to Return Paid Patriotism Funds Again

By Aaron Kesel

Amid the kneeling protest during the national anthem, the NFL may be forced to return taxpayers’ funds. Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) on Tuesday called for an end to all federal government support of the NFL.

“I believe we ought to terminate all federal government support of the NFL,” Brooks told Breitbart News.

“That would include the termination of any and all advertising that is done on behalf of the federal government — military and nonmilitary — to the extent we do any.”...

Zuckerberg Fires Back At Trump, Admits "Russian Ads" Were Meaningless

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has responded to a Trump tweet from earlier this morning which suggested that Facebook, among other media outlets, were "always anti-Trump" from the beginning (we noted the Trump tweets here).

In his response, Zuckerberg finally managed to interject some logic into the Left's latest, and most entertaining "Russian collusion" narrative which continues to allege that $100,000 (one hundred thousand) worth of ad buys on Facebook managed to sway the outcome of the entire U.S. election.

After acknowledging that he has recently found himself in the uncomfortable position of coming under attack by both the Left and Right for "helping" the other side, Zuckerberg pointed out, as have we on numerous occasions, that "campaigns spent hundreds of millions advertising online" which was "1000x more than any problematic ads we've found."

BRIAN COX ON NIBIRU: TV scientist breaks silence over Planet X end of the world prophecy

On September 21 he tweeted: "I consider this an experiment. If we're still here on 24th, we can conclude that all doomsday prophesy is b******s."

He then took a further swipe at Planet X believers, tweeting: "I think the Nibru Nobbers is a great name for a band."

After the world woke up safely on September 24, Mr Cox tweeted: "Apparently the Nibiru Cataclysm has been delayed for around two years."

Mr Cox had not tweeted about the Nibiru claims for five years since a former doomsday day in 2012 was given.

At the time he said: "If anyone else asks me about 'Nibiru' the imaginary bulls**t planet I will slap them around their irrational heads with Newton's Principia."

US Promises to Deploy ‘Strategic’ Military Assets Near Korean Peninsula

South Korean National Security Office chief Chung Eui-yong says that the US has committed to deploying more “strategic” military assets around the Korean Peninsula. Such deployments are to start later this year.

Details are scant, but Chung suggested the deployment was meant to show that there wasn’t “any crack” between the US and the South Korean government amid mounting US tensions with North Korea.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in has insisted that he will not allow any US deployments of nuclear weapons into South Korea. This likely rules out a lot of such assets, though “strategic” assets could still include aircraft carriers and heavy bombers.

The caveat that the deployments will be “near” the Korean Peninsula could mean the US is planning buildups in Guam and Japan as well.

Iraqi PM Demands Kurds ‘Cancel’ Referendum Result

The results of the Iraqi Kurdistan referendum on secession are in, with over 92% of the voters in favor of seceding from Iraq. Iraq’s Prime Minister Hayder Abadi has threatened military action in retaliation.

In fact, Abadi is now demanding that the Kurds totally cancel the vote, even though it’s already taken place and the results are already in, saying he will “never discuss” the results of the referendum because Iraq’s parliament didn’t give them permission for it.

Iraqi officials seem to be throwing everything at the situation in Kurdistan now and seeing what sticks. Demands for the Kurds to surrender their airports have been spurned, and Kurdish officials had ruled out returning to Baghdad’s rule before Abadi’s latest demands were even made.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Iraqi Prime Minister Abadi, a word, please; in a terse statement my late grandmother frequently used to illustrate the reality that it was past time to actually fix something, she would say: "The horse is already out of the barn."

The Iraqi Kurdish people have spoken, and with one voice; how you deal with it will, ultimately, be in one of two ways; either a Turkish-assisted genocide of the Iraqi Kurds, or a political accomodation which requires no bloodshed.

The choice is both yours, and that of the Iraqi government.

But I can assure you, that the entire world is watching.

As a member of the UN, and represented by Permanent Representative of Iraq to the United Nations, Mohammed al – Hakim, you must understand that peaceful self-determination is enshrined in the UN charter, to which Iraq is a signatory.

So you have the choice; genocide; or accomodation.

Which will it be, Prime Minister Abadi, with the entire world watching and collectively holding its breath?!?

Sweden Facing New Challenges as Acid Throwing Plague Reaches Scandinavia

The UK has recently achieved the dubious honor of becoming the "world capital of acid attacks," which have more than tripled in six years. Now, this deadly trend appears to have reached Scandinavia, as two people were attacked with a caustic liquid in Greater Stockholm earlier this week.
Two people were taken to hospital in Upplands Väsby north of Stockholm after being attacked with some sort of caustic liquid. The offender is believed to have escaped in a car after spilling the noxious liquid into his victim's faces.

"A person, a man, left the scene in a car and is currently wanted by the authorities," Anna Westberg of the Stockholm Police told the Swedish newspaper Expressen.

While the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet reported the liquid to be ammonia, the police have not commented on the incident.

"I cannot say exactly what kind of liquid it was," Anna Westberg told Expressen.

THE LETHAL FOREIGN POLICY OF MILITARY EXPERTS

Libya was bombed by the US government yesterday, but you wouldn’t know it because the media have been obsessed with the #TakeAKnee dispute between the president and the NFL. Trump may not even be aware that Libya was bombed under his authority, because he has put his trusty “Mad Dog” on a very long leash, in the hopes that he’ll be able to figure out how to clean up the mess in the Middle East.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is rather unfortunate, at this point in President Trump's tenure as President, that his unholy triumverate of "president whisperers", Mattis, Kelly, and Mc Master, appear to believe that the only anwser to any geopolitical issue in which the Occupied, Unhinged, Surveilled States of Amerika is involved appears to be... yet more war.

ISRAELI MINISTER COMES CLEAN ABOUT TEL AVIV’S ‘ASSAD CAN SORT OF STAY’ NARRATIVE

The new phase of Israel aggression against Syria revolves around the targeting of a comparatively small group of Iranian military advisors who are in the country. In the Israeli lexicon, targeting ‘Iran’ is also a code word for targeting the Lebanese Arab party Hezbollah whose volunteers are cooperating with the government of the Syrian Arab Republic against jihadist terrorists. Thus far, Israel has struck Syrian and Hezbollah targets in Syria, but the Israeli regime has not killed any actual Iranians in Syria.

Now, a prominent minister in the Likud regime, Ze’ev Elkin, has given an interview with the ultra-liberal Russian radio station Echo of Moscow and has said the following,

“I do not think we should interfere in this issue. Usually, our attempts to interfere in our neighbours”.

U.S. CONDUCTS FIRST AIRSTRIKE IN LIBYA UNDER TRUMP ADMINISTRATION

On 22 September, the US conducted an airstrike on an ISIS camp in the desert valleys about 150 miles south-east of Sirte, reportedly killing 17 ISIS fighters and destroying 3 vehicles. US Africa Command (Africom) said the strikes were carried out by armed Reaper drones flying from a base in Sicily. Reda Eissa, a spokesman for the Government of National Accord’s (GNA) Misrata-led al-Bunyan al-Marsus (BM) coalition said he had no information about the airstrikes. Interestingly, the Libyan National Army (LNA) also said that it conducted airstrikes against ISIS targets near Sadada, west of Sirte, on the same day.

TURKEY, IRAQ, AND IRAN CONSIDER JOINT MILITARY ACTION AGAINST THE KURDS

Turkey’s Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu today warned that every option is on the table for dealing with Iraqi Kurdistan’s independence bid, and that they are considering a joint military operation with the Iraqi central government against the Kurds.

Iran chimed in shortly thereafter, saying they’re eager to stand with both Iraq and Turkey to rule out any possible secession of the Kurds. Top Khamenei adviser Ali Akbar Velayati termed the big “an abhorrent deviation,” adding that the region would “not allow the creation of a second Israel.”

Iraqi officials haven’t directly addressed the possibility of military action against the Kurds, though the Iraqi parliament has approved the deployment of the military into areas contested by the Kurdistan Regional Government.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, the sense I get here, is that we are looking at ethnic cleansing of Iraqi Kurds, and happening quickly.

Turkey, historically, is very comfortable with the concept of genocide:

The first genocide of the 20th Century occurred when two million Armenians living in Turkey were eliminated from their historic homeland through forced deportations and massacres.

As the Turkish government considers much of its own Kurdish population to be "terrorists", belonging to, or adhering to the principals of the PKK (even though many are completely innocent of any violence, and just requesting more rights and freedoms as an ethnic minority in Turkey), They will not hesitate to ethnically cleanse Iraq of its Kurdish population in a heartbeat, given the opportunity.

FOIA: How Police Convinced the FAA to Put a No Fly Zone Over Standing Rock

"We need to ensure the movement of law enforcement trying to protect the innocent is not being broadcast live by the use of drones."

When last year's Dakota Access pipeline (DAPL) protests came to a head, disturbing footage shot by Indigenous drone pilots revealed the extreme brutality of Morton County police.

Using drones, peaceful demonstrators, also called "water protectors," filmed an armored vehicle launching percussion grenades into the crowd; water cannons being fired at civilians; and continued pipeline construction after dark. Their footage helped to expose the military-style tactics used by local law enforcement to suppress dissent—excessive force that is now the subject of a class-action lawsuit filed against Morton County by on behalf of those injured at the Standing Rock protest camp.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable, but thoroughly predictable as orders from the monied to their alleged serfs.

IRAQ AUTHORISES TROOP DEPLOYMENT IN KIRKUK

Of the many controversial elements surrounding this week’s Kurdish separatist referendum in Iraq, the inclusion of the oil rich region of Kirkuk was among the most controversial.

Kirkuk has never been a part of autonomous Kurdish regions in Iraq, but in spite of this, the secessionist Kurdish leaders included Kirkuk in areas where Kurds voted to secede from Iraq. Crucially, the referendum was boycotted by Kirkuk’s non-Kurdish populations, including Iraqi Arabs.

After giving secessionist leaders a three day ultimatum to handover regional airports to Iraqi authorities, Iraq’s Prime Minister Haider Abadi now has a parliamentary mandate to send Iraqi troops into Kirkuk to police the general security against secessionist activities.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This may well get very bloody, and quickly.

What the Kurdish political leaders fully expected from the US, after being their proxy in Syria, was an independent Kurdistan, but it looks as though the Occupied Unhinged Surveilled States of Amerika is walking back on this.

So now that the referendum has passed, overwhelmingly, just how are those in the Bowels of Power in this country going to play this?!? By supporting the Iraqi government, and betraying the Kurds, or by supporting the Kurds, and betraying the Iraqi government?!?

The US government cannot have this both ways.

Why The United States Is the Fourth Reich

US President Trump’s declaration last week before the UN to “totally destroy” North Korea and his general ranting about American military might is on par with the Nazi Third Reich’s invocation of “Total War”.

The ease with which Trump and his senior officials talk about “military options” towards North Korea, and any other defiant nation, is arguably not just a violation of the UN Charter but also the principles of international law established at the Nuremberg Trials of Nazi leaders. Any use or threat of war that is not a clear act of self-defense is “aggression”.

***
Sooner or later it will dawn on the Russian government that Washington is not a rational government with which diplomacy can be practiced, peace pursued, and agreements reached. Sooner or later it will dawn on the Russian government that far from being rational, Washington is a criminally insane collection of psychopaths in thrall to the military/security complex which, in turn, is in thrall to its massive profits.

In other words, for the powerful interest groups that control the US government, war is a profit center. No amount of Russian diplomacy can do anything about this fact.

US May Push Iran Into Becoming Next Nuclear Crisis

It’s no secret that the Trump administration is busily building a case to have the United States repudiate the P5+1 nuclear agreement with Iran. Even when the president grudgingly conceded that Tehran was complying with the explicit terms of the accord, he groused that Iranian leaders were violating “the spirit” of the document.

Unfortunately, administration officials and a vocal flock of hawks in the United States seem determined to sabotage the accord. The latest salvo was the speech that U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley delivered to the ultra-hawkish American Enterprise Institute on September 5.

Raimondo: Propaganda and the Catalonian Referendum

The laziness of journalists is legendary. Especially these days, when the line between journalist and propagandist has been blurred, the many ways in which these scribblers take shortcuts and otherwise seek to make their jobs less strenuous have been greatly increased. While outright plagiarism used to be the favored method, with the advance of technology this has become much easier to detect, and so the self-indulgent scribe has moved on other, less obvious shortcuts. The substitution of opinion for the reporting of facts is one way to fill up a page, and, in tandem with this, the adoption of a formula is now a mainstay of “mainstream” journalism. This is unashamedly borrowed from those writers of pure fiction who labor in the fields of various sub-literate genres – say, pornography – and must churn out large quantities of product in order to pay the rent. >>>

The Militarization of the NFL

Professional sports should stop shilling for the warfare state.

Before 2009, Colin Kaepernick would have had to find some other way to protest racism against African Americans. That’s because until the height of the Iraq War, NFL football players weren’t even required to leave the locker room for the national anthem, much less stand for it.

(*Everybody's Mad As Hell at The Pitsburgh Steelers for reverting to that old NFL policy
That seems like the simplest solution .
Before the knee protests players didn't exactly stand at attention while the anthem was performed
. you'd see them doing stand in place Calisthenics , toe raises , trunk twists , bouncing from one foot to the other , grasping a towel that's hanging around the neck , etc.
They're there to play football , not to praise ceaser I MEAN TRUMP , and they're not members of the armed forces . )

How to Bring Down the Elephant in the Room

First, a painful, but needed, clarification:

For some this bumping will happen earlier in the list, for others a little later down the list, but the list will be more or less the same for everybody. Proper etiquette, atleast in the West, would want to make us run away from this topic. I won’t. Why? Well, for one thing I am constantly accused of not discussing this elephant. Furthermore, I am afraid that the role this elephant is playing is particularly toxic right now. So let me try to deal with this beast, but first I have to begin with some caveats.

British filmmaker Ken Loach is in hot water this afternoon. He told the BBC’s Daily Politics presenter Jo Coburn that: “All history is our common heritage to discuss and analyse. The founding of the state of Israel, for example, based on ethnic cleansing is there for us all to discuss.”
Note: For that he is anti-Semitic!

Because the Beech-Nut Packing Company told you to, that's why. But don't take it from me, take it from the man who engineered the campaign himself, Edward Bernays. So what other ideas have been woven so thoroughly into the fabric of our society that we no longer even stop to think about them?

This Chart Defines The 21st Century Economy

Policy tweaks such as tax reform are mere public relations ploys. The cancer eating away at our economy and society arises from the Federal Reserve and the structure of our financial system, and the the degradation of our representative democracy into a pay-to-play auction to the highest bidder.

Illegals costing Americans RECORD $135 billion a year…

The swelling population of illegal immigrants and their kids is costing American taxpayers $135 billion a year, the highest ever, driven by free medical care, education and a huge law enforcement bill, according to the the most authoritative report on the issue yet.... And despite claims from pro-illegal immigration advocates that the aliens pay significant off-setting taxes back to federal, state and local treasuries, the Federation for American Immigration Reform report tallied just $19 billion, making the final hit to taxpayers about $116 billion.

FEMA Director Urges Americans to Develop “a true culture of preparedness” But No One Is Listening

It looks like preppers aren’t that crazy after all. FEMA’s new director, Brock Long, has repeatedly said that Americans do not have a “culture of preparedness,” something that is much-needed with the startling uptick in natural disasters. Long has only been the director of FEMA since June 20 of this year and already has had to deal with a historic number of disasters in this short period of time. Perhaps this reality is why Mr. Long is so adamant that Americans need to get prepared to take care of themselves and that we need to raise our children to understand this too. That’s not the warm fuzzy thing that people who refuse to prepare want to hear, so the mainstream media gives his advice little attention. A culture of preparedness is indeed the answer, and preppers have known this for a very long time.

Close to 50 percent of the 1,500 people polled in the latest Economist/YouGov survey believed Trump “actually means to attack North Korea” while 45 percent believe Kim intends to do the same to the United States.

The real U.S. Constitution, which was scrapped long ago, does not permit judges to be its final interpreters, executive orders, coercion of the people of a State by the federal government, delegation of control of the currency to a private banking cartel, the subsidy of private corporations, or calling the militia to active service except in case of invasion or rebellion and at the request of the State.

Trump's Big Problem: He Talks Too Much

President Trump's speech in Alabama Friday night lasted one hour and 23 minutes. A transcript of his remarks runs to just over 12,000 words.
***
What is striking is that the football remarks, which set off another media/political firestorm for Trump, are in the simplest sense a result of the president just talking too much.
***
"Reagan said to me one day, 'How long do you think I can hold an audience?'" Rollins recalled in a conversation Monday.

When Rollins said he did not know, Reagan explained, "Here's what I do. I pick someone in the audience. I watch them. I watch their reaction, every so often look across the room."

"I can hold an audience for about 20, 23 minutes >>>

"Songbird" McCain Betrays the United States - Again

He didn't just betray his country. He betrayed the voters of AZ who put him in office based on his lies. He betrayed the donors who paid for his campaign because they believed he was an honorable man. And he betrayed his colleagues in the Senate who supported him through his scandals.
Yes, he is a veteran. And yes, he has cancer. But neither gives him the excuse to call himself a Republican

(*So just Dish Him Off as a Democrat !)

‘Interactive' sex doll breaks down after huge number customers try it out at Austrian electronics fair

The £3,000 sex robot which was the star attraction at a big electronics fair in Austria this month, has broken down after a large number of visitors got overexcited.

Samantha the Sex Doll had been showing off her 'skills', which include reacting to touch, hugging and moaning - and remembering individuals she has 'interacted' with, at the Arts Electronica Festival in Linz.

However, Samantha's creators have now been forced to send her to be repaired, after visitors left the robot 'heavily soiled' and with broken limbs.

Netanyahu convenes security cabinet to discuss Iran missile threat

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday called a special meeting of his security cabinet following Iran’s testing of a ballistic missile that can reach Israel over the weekend.

The missile test, along with efforts to get world powers to cancel or fix the Iran nuclear deal, were the top priorities at the meeting, Israel Radio reported.

Netanyahu also planned to brief the body on his meetings last week in New York during which he held discussions with US President Donald Trump and separately with Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears that Iran gave Netanyahu a gift with this missile test; now, he has something else to talk about other than the corruption trial, coming up soon!!

WORLD NEWSSpanish Police to Take Over Catalan Polling Stations to Thwart Independence Vote

Spain's government said on Tuesday police would take control of voting booths in Catalonia to help thwart the region's planned independence referendum that Madrid has declared illegal.

The dispute has plunged Spain into one of its biggest political crises since the restoration of democracy in the 1970s after decades of military dictatorship.

Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy has said the referendum is against the law and the constitutional court has ordered it be halted while its legality is determined. Catalonia's separatist government, however, remains committed to holding it on Sunday.

Rajoy, speaking on Tuesday alongside U.S. President Donald Trump in Washington, said it would be "ridiculous" if the affluent northeastern region declared independence from Spain.

Trump said he opposed the referendum and wanted a united Spain. "I really think the people of Catalonia would stay with Spain. I think it would be foolish not to," he told reporters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, a word, please; as a country which is a signatory to the UN, for which the concept of peaceful self-determination is enshrined in its charter, does the Spanish government have any possible clue about how geopolitically lousy the optics are of these moves against the Catalonian referendum?!?

I am having a double Picard facepalm, at warp speed, upon reading this!!!

Not allowing this referendum may well place Spain in the peril of having a civil war; and that, sir, is something no sane Spaniard would want to see happen!!!

WAS FACEBOOK PRESSURED INTO FINDING ‘SOMETHING’ TO IMPLICATE RUSSIA?

Robert Parry of Consortium News just published an extremely important article picking apart The Washington Post’s latest attempt to convince readers that Russia influenced the 2016 U.S. election. In this case, by purchasing a measly $100,000 of Facebook ads.

The Washington Post, which has a history of falsely claiming certain alternative media websites work for the Kremlin, is owned by billionaire Jeff Bezos, founder and CEO of Amazon, which has a $600 million contract with the CIA. When it comes to Russia hysteria, the paper is in a class of its own.

What follows are some key excerpts from Parry’s piece, WPost Pushes More Dubious Russia-bashing. You should read the entire thing and share.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why am I completely unsurprised by these revelations?!?

Folks, this was desperation on the cusp of madness, and there is no "there" there!!

As Predicted, Supreme Court Kicks Can on Trump’s Travel Ban

***
To recap, the temporary restrictions initially announced during President Trump’s first week in office applied to seven Muslim-majority countries: Iran, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Yemen, Somalia, and Sudan. Iraq was removed when the restrictions were revised on March 6. The new order issued Sunday (September 24), announces an indefinite travel ban. It drops Sudan from the list, but adds Chad, North Korea, and Venezuela.

Trump did not come up with the original seven countries on his own. They were cited in legislation signed by President Obama that related to the Visa Waiver Program (section 1187(a)(12) of federal immigration law). Nevertheless, because of Trump’s campaign rhetoric against radical Islam — which, Trump being Trump, was colorably alleged to be anti-Islam — critics attacked the travel restrictions as the product of bias against Muslims.

U.S. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP QUIETLY SIGNS LAW TO ALLOW WARRANTLESS SEARCHES IN PARTS OF VA, DC AND MD

As former White House chief of staff and current Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has said: “You never let a serious crisis go to waste.” While everyone was worried about the hurricanes, U.S. President Donald Trump signed away the Fourth Amendment buried in a new bill. He set a precedent by empowering the police state to allow warrantless searches in parts of VA, MD and D.C. near the Metro train system.

The new safety commission will take over from the current Federal Transit Agency (FTA), which has been in charge of safety oversight for the Washington Metropolitan Area Interstate Compact (WMATA) since October 2015.

“We’ll set this up and get the FTA out of Metro. They are happy to get out, and we’re happy to get them out,” Metro Board of Directors Chair Jack Evans told Bloomberg BNA. “I’m glad we got this thing. If nothing else, we’ll get our money.”

THE "RUSSIAN INFLUENCE" STORY FALLS APART - A NEW FAIRY TALE IS NEEDED

The Obama White House and some Democratic officials pressed Facebook to find evidence for alleged "Russian interference" in the U.S. election. When Facebook found none, the pressure increased. Facebook went back, again found nothing and political pressure increase further. Congress threatened to investigate. Senator Warner flew to California and demanded the "right" results. Eventually Facebook gave in:

By early August, Facebook had identified more than 3,000 ads addressing social and political issues that ran in the United States between 2015 and 2017 and that appear to have come from accounts associated with the Internet Research Agency.

All hailed Facebook - finally there was something they could build their anti-Russian campaign on.

More importantly, Gen. Dunford warned that a US move to unilaterally withdraw from the deal would have huge ramifications internationally, raising global questions about America’s treaty obligations, and reliability as a partner in future negotiations.
