The tree was a major part of the native tribe's cultural landscape, countless generations of natives having witnessed the long duration of the tree and having included it in their own culture.

"This is an extremely dangerous and life-threatening situation."

11 Deaths: At Florida Nursing Home, Many Calls for Help, but None That Made a Difference | 23 Sept 2017 | Eight residents of the nursing home [Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills] were dead by the end of that day, Sept. 13, and three who were among the 140 evacuated have died since. The Hollywood police have opened a criminal investigation, while the state has all but shut down the residence. That same day, about 160 other nursing homes across Florida had no electricity, and most of those, like Hollywood Hills, had no generator capable of powering air-conditioning. But of all those places, the only one where a power loss is known to have caused multiple deaths was the home that advertised being "directly across the street from Hollywood’s Memorial Regional Hospital -- so patients receive the finest health care day and night."

Pentagon Caught Falsifying Paperwork on $2.2 Billion Weapons Funnel to Syrian Opposition --Pentagon is running massive weapons trafficking pipeline which originates in the Balkans and Caucuses and ends in Syria and Iraq | 14 Sept 2017 | A new bombshell joint report issued by two international weapons monitoring groups Tuesday confirms that the Pentagon continues to ship record breaking amounts of weaponry into Syria and that the Department of Defense is scrubbing its own paper trail. On Tuesday the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) and the Balkan Investigative Reporting Network (BIRN) produced conclusive evidence that not only is the Pentagon currently involved in shipping up to $2.2 billion worth of weapons from a shady network of private dealers to allied partners in Syria - mostly old Soviet weaponry - but is actually manipulating paperwork such as end-user certificates, presumably in order to hide US involvement.

US set to ease curbs on drone strikes

US set to ease curbs on drone strikes | 22 Sept 2017 | Donald Trump's administration is ready to lift restrictions on military drone strikes, according to reports in the US. The New York Times reports that senior officials are preparing to scrap curbs which were put in place by the Obama administration. Under the proposed changes drone strikes would not be limited to taking out "high level" militants who are considered to pose a threat to Americans. The change in policy is likely to see an escalation in the use of drones, a policy which was heralded by Donald Trump in a speech last month.

Latest Obamacare Repeal Effort Is Most Far-Reaching | 21 Sept 2017 | The bill that Senate Republican leaders have vowed to bring to a vote next week...dismantles the Medicaid expansion and the system of subsidies to help people afford insurance.

And it removes the guaranteed safety net that has insured the country's poorest citizens for more than half a century. The White House and Senate leaders are now in an intensive final push to repeal the Affordable Care Act by September 30.

Samantha Power sought to unmask Americans on almost daily basis, sources say | 20 Sept 2017 | Samantha Power, the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, was 'unmasking' at such a rapid pace in the final months of the Obama administration that she averaged more than one request for every working day in 2016 - and even sought information in the days leading up to President Trump's inauguration, multiple sources close to the matter told Fox News. Two sources, who were not authorized to speak on the record, said the requests to identify Americans whose names surfaced in foreign intelligence reporting, known as unmasking, exceeded 260 last year. One source indicated this occurred in the final days of the Obama White House.

'It's destroyed everything in its path': Puerto Rico in total darkness after Hurricane Maria knocks out 100% of island's power

'It's destroyed everything in its path': Puerto Rico in total darkness after Hurricane Maria knocks out 100% of the island's power while nearly two feet of rain turns roads into rivers of mud --Maria made landfall on Puerto Rico Wednesday morning as a Cat. 4 hurricane with 155 mph winds --Forecasters say it could regain strength and Maria could again become a major hurricane by Thursday | 20 Sept 2017 | Puerto Rico may be without power for months after Hurricane Maria hit the U.S. territory with powerful winds that downed trees, ripped the roofs off homes and turned roads into rivers with flash flooding. Gov. Ricardo Rosselló told CNN late Wednesday night that it may take months to restore power to the entire island. He said that as a result of the powerful Category 4 hurricane, no one on the island has power from utilities since the power grid is 'a little bit old, mishandled and weak'. More than 10,000 remained in shelters Wednesday night as the governor has imposed a curfew on the island from 6pm to 6am beginning Wednesday and ending on Saturday morning.

 

Shocking emails reveal editor of food science journal was on Monsanto's payroll at $400 per hour

Shocking emails reveal editor of food science journal was on Monsanto's payroll at $400 per hour | 20 Sept 2017 | Recently released court documents reveal what many people have long suspected: Monsanto [terrorist group and Obama's best buds] had a hand in the retraction of a groundbreaking study that left little doubt about the dangers of glyphosate in a prominent food science journal. Monsanto will do anything to protect the reputation of Roundup and its other herbicide products – which earned them $1.9 billion in gross profits in 2015 alone - and that includes silencing their detractors. It has now emerged that the Editor in Chief of the journal Food and Chemical Toxicology who oversaw the famous study's retraction was on Monsanto's payroll. This is a conflict of interest at best, and possibly something far more underhanded, and they might have gotten away with it had their lawyers succeeded in preventing their internal documents from being released in a class action lawsuit filed against the firm by cancer patients.

Utilities meant to hide report on nuclear project - attorney

Utilities meant to hide report on nuclear project - attorney | 19 Sept 2017 | For at least two years before a South Carolina nuclear power construction project was abandoned, its owners had a report that they intended to keep secret showing the reactors couldn't be completed as planned, an attorney for a legislative panel investigating the debacle said Friday. "The report is very, very troubling," said Scott Elliott, hired by the House for the hearings. "It was designed to never see the light of day." ...The utilities abandoned the project July 31 after jointly spending nearly $10 billion, leaving nearly 6,000 people jobless. A[n insane] 2007 state law allows South Carolina Electric & Gas (SCE&G) to recoup its debt from customers if state regulators determine money was spent prudently.

Over 3,000 new US troops headed to Afghanistan - Pentagon | 18 Sept 2017 | US Defense Secretary James Mattis confirmed that over 3,000 new US troops will be headed to Afghanistan as part of President Donald Trump’s new strategy to win the war that has dragged on for almost 16 years.

Earlier in the day, Senator David Perdue (R-Georgia) referred to "3,500 more troops" in an article published by Defense One.

House goes to court to protect secrecy of records --An effort to fight a FOIA lawsuit for proposals on health care reform wins bipartisan backing. | 15 Sept 2017 | The House of Representatives is taking legal action to make sure that federal agencies don’t release congressional records to the public through the Freedom of Information Act. The move, which came Friday evening in a lawsuit demanding access to discussions about health care reform between the Trump administration and Congress, threatens to cut off a mechanism liberal watchdog groups were using to gain insight into closed-door negotiations on a variety of policy issues. In legal papers filed in U.S. District Court in Washington, House General Counsel Thomas Hungar said the move to protect congressional correspondence was authorized by a House body known as the Bipartisan Legal Advisory Group.

The 'deplorable professor' is back and going off on one of his colleagues

The 'deplorable professor' is back and going off on one of his colleagues [whom I'd never even had the displeasure of meeting] --Comments by MDR | 18 Sept 2017 | Last year, Michael Rechtenwald [sic - Rectenwald. This 'article' is so factually errant that even the subject's name is misspelled.] - now a Liberal Studies Professor at NYU [He's been a liberal studies professor for over nine years!] - revealed that he was the man behind the Twitter handle @antipcnyuprof, an account under which he has previously rallied [I think you mean "railed."] against politically correct culture, safe spaces and trigger warnings [as well as bias reporting hotlines and the no-platforming of speakers. Reading is fun. You should try it sometime.]. Now teaching at NYU full-time [He was always full-time at NYU. He was promoted from Assistant to Full Professor, the highest rank available. Get your facts straight before pretending to be a reporter.], Rectenwald continues to use this twitter [And you're suggesting that he shouldn't? Why?] and yesterday used the account to go after his NYU colleague Michael Isaacson [Isaacson is not my "colleague." He once taught in Liberal Studies at NYU, as yet another unqualified hack, but does not any longer. Thank goodness there's no longer an avowed Antifa member on faculty, I hope. Isaacson is a hack with no Ph.D., zero credible publications, and no business setting foot in the front of any classroom. He's utterly unhinged as well.], who he claims is an "open Antifa member" [He is. Read the Twitter account. He's a dangerous clown who threatened to kill his own students in the future if they become cops.]. In the tweets issued yesterday afternoon, Rectenwald called out 'notorious Antifa member' Isaacson for coming after him in emails sent over the NYU list-serves, emails in which Isaacson reportedly called Rectenwald an asshole "four times in the space of four lines." [Isaacson should be fired from John Jay, and this "reporter" should be fired from whatever rag that he "writes" for. Both are incompetent. Isaacson couldn't make an argument against my views, so resorted to vulgarity, just as this reporter resorted to insinuation and stupidity.]
