Paramedics asked six times to enter Parkland school where kids were dying; Broward Sheriff's Office said no

Paramedics asked six times to enter Parkland school where kids were dying; Broward Sheriff's Office said no | 01 June 2018 | During the Parkland school shooting, paramedics from Coral Springs-Parkland Fire Department were desperate to go inside the building where students were wounded and dying. Michael McNally, deputy chief for Coral Springs fire-rescue, asked six times for permission to send in specialized teams of police officers and paramedics, according to an incident report he filed after the Feb. 14 Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting that left 17 people dead. But every time McNally asked to deploy the two Rescue Task Force teams -- each made up of three paramedics and three to four law enforcement officers -- the Broward Sheriff's Office captain in charge of the scene, Jan Jordan, said no...Even after the [alleged] shooter had been arrested, the answer remained the same. [And, we know the deputies were told to stand down, as well. Now, am I deemed a 'conspiracy theorist' for asserting that it seems as if certain individuals/some agency wanted this shooting to proceed, with the goal of a maximum tragic outcome? Sorry, but I see no other logical conclusion.  --LRP]

The planning is still at an early stage, the official said, with the two nations needing to agree on a date and location.

Trump pushes ahead with metals tariffs against EU, Canada and Mexico

Trump pushes ahead with metals tariffs against EU, Canada and Mexico | 31 May 2018 | The United States on Thursday said it was pushing ahead with tariffs on aluminum and steel imports from Canada, Mexico and the European Union, setting the stage for a possible trade war with some of America's top allies. [Too bad about them! Americans need jobs.] Trump in March announced global tariffs of 25 percent on imports of steel, and 10 percent on aluminum, citing national security concerns, but has delayed enacting them for some countries, giving them time to offer concessions. US Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross told reporters in a telephone briefing that the tariffs would go into effect at midnight.

U.S. adds 223,000 new jobs as unemployment falls to 18-year low in May | 31 May 2018 | The numbers: The U.S. created a robust 223,000 new jobs in May to push unemployment down to an 18-year low of 3.8%, signaling that a nine-year-old economic expansion still has plenty of steam despite being one of the oldest ever. The increase in hiring -- the biggest in three months -- exceeded the 200,000 forecast of economists polled by MarketWatch. The unemployment rate fell again to the lowest level since April 2000 as more people found work. The last time the jobless rate was even lower was in 1969.

Feds reportedly find surveillance tech near White House

Feds reportedly find surveillance tech near White House | 01 June 2018 | The feds discovered sophisticated surveillance devices that intercept cellphones near the White House and other sensitive locations in the DC area last year, a new report said Friday. A Department of Homeland Security probe discovered evidence of the surveillance devices, called IMSI catchers, as part of federal testing last year, according to a letter from DHS to Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) on May 22, the Washington Post reported. DHS didn't say who was behind the cyber-snooping, but the discovery backs up a body of research that foreign intelligence agencies use sophisticated interception technology to spy on US officials.

Hawaii's Kilauea has destroyed more than 80 homes --Residents told to evacuate | 02 June 2018 | More than 80 homes have been destroyed by the Kilauea volcano eruption in Hawaii in the four weeks since lava began flowing, Hawaii Civil Defense spokesman Talmadge Mango said Friday. The number of homes swallowed by the lava flowing from fissures has jumped to at least 87, up the from the 77 reported destroyed Thursday.

London 'bridges' falling down: Curious origins of FBI's Trump-Russia probe

London 'bridges' falling down: Curious origins of FBI's Trump-Russia probe | 01 June 2018 | The bridge to the Russia investigation wasn't erected in Moscow during the summer of the 2016 election. It originated earlier, 1,700 miles away in London, where foreign figures contacted Trump campaign advisers and provided the FBI with hearsay allegations of Trump-Russia collusion, bureau documents and interviews of government insiders reveal. These contacts in spring 2016 -- some from trusted intelligence sources, others from Hillary Clinton supporters -- occurred well before FBI headquarters authorized an official counterintelligence investigation on July 31, 2016. The new timeline makes one wonder: Did the FBI follow its rules governing informants?

White House releases photos of Trump accepting Kim Jong Un's letter | 01 June 2018 | The White House unveiled a photo on Friday of President Trump receiving a letter authored by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un from a top envoy from Pyongyang. The photo was released hours after Trump met with Kim Yong Chol, North Korea's former intelligence chief and a top aide to Kim Jong Un, at the White House. Kim Yong Chol's visit marked Pyongyang's most senior-level official visit to the U.S. since 2000.

'Deliberate war crime': Palestinians decry murder of 21yo female paramedic at Gaza border

'Deliberate war crime': Palestinians decry murder of 21yo female paramedic at Gaza border | 02 June 2018 | The killing of a 21-year-old female medical worker during the Great March of Return at the Gaza border is nothing short of a war crime, Palestinian officials said, calling on the international community to hold Israel responsible. The murder of 21-year-old medical volunteer, Razan Al-Najar, is a direct violation of all "international treaties and conventions" that ensure the protection of the medical staff in the conflict zones, Palestinian Minister of Health, Jawad Awwad, said late Friday, noting that the shooting of the paramedic must have been "deliberate" and amounted to a "war crime." The volunteer was shot in the chest by the Israeli Defense Forces on Friday near the border fence east of Khan Younes, in the southern Gaza Strip, while she was helping wounded Palestinians.

After the meeting in the Oval Office, Trump walked Kim and his delegation to their car, an honor usually reserved for a select few foreign dignitaries. He confirmed that the scheduled meeting, which had earlier appeared to be in jeopardy, will take place.

Trump says summit with North Korea will take place on June 12 | 01 June 2018 | President Trump said Friday that his meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will take place as scheduled on June 12, ending a week of uncertainty about the historic summit. Trump made the announcement after an 80-minute meeting in the Oval Office with top North Korea official Kim Yong Chol, who hand-delivered a personal letter from Kim Jong Un -- a symbolic gesture aimed at easing tensions that led Trump last week to scrap the summit. "We're going to be June 12 -- we'll be in Singapore. It'll be a beginning," Trump told reporters on the South Lawn, adding, "I think we're going to have a very positive result in the end."

We Ran Out of Words to Describe How Good the Jobs Numbers Are

We Ran Out of Words to Describe How Good the Jobs Numbers Are --The economy is in a sweet spot, with steady growth and broad improvement in the labor market. | 01 June 2018 | The real question in analyzing the May jobs numbers released Friday is whether there are enough synonyms for "good" in an online thesaurus to describe them adequately. So, for example, "splendid" and "excellent" fit the bill. Those are the kinds of terms that are appropriate when the United States economy adds 223,000 jobs in a month, despite being nine years into an expansion, and when the unemployment rate falls to 3.8 percent, a new 18-year low. "Salubrious," "salutary" and "healthy" work as words to describe the 0.3 percent rise in average hourly earnings, which are up 2.7 percent over the last year...And a broader definition of unemployment, which includes people who have given up looking for a job out of frustration, fell to 7.6 percent. The jobless rate for African-Americans fell to 5.9 percent, the lowest on record, which we would count as "great."

Dr. Steven Pitt, 59, helped investigate the high profile 1996 murder case as well as a string of other killings in the Phoenix area more than a decade ago. In JonBenet's case Pitt believed the pineapple found in the six-year-old’s digestive tract, which her mother denied she ate, was proof of a family cover up. He was leaving his office when witnesses say they heard a loud argument then gunfire as he was shot on Thursday...Pitt also consulted in the 1999 Columbine High School shooting.

Trump considering clemency for Blagojevich, Stewart

Trump considering clemency for Blagojevich, Stewart | 31 May 2018 | President Trump on Thursday said he is considering commuting the sentence of former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich (D) and pardoning TV personality Martha Stewart. Trump's comments come hours after he pardoned conservative commentator Dinesh D'Souza, who pleaded guilty to a felony campaign finance violation. Last week, the president offered a posthumous pardon for the boxer Jack Johnson. Trump told reporters in his private cabin aboard Air Force One he believes Blagojevich was "being stupid" but added that "every other politician" has done it and that his sentence is excessive. [Exactly.]

Prosecutors interview Comey as they investigate whether McCabe should be charged | 31 May 2018 | Investigators from the D.C. U.S. Attorney's Office recently interviewed former FBI director James B. Comey as part of a probe into whether his deputy, Andrew McCabe, broke the law by lying to federal agents -- an indication the office is seriously considering whether McCabe should be charged with a crime, a person familiar with the matter said. Justice Department Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz accused McCabe in April of misleading investigators and Comey four times -- three of them under oath -- about authorizing a disclosure to the media. Horowitz referred the findings to the D.C. U.S. Attorney's Office to determine whether criminal charges are warranted. Lying to federal investigators can carry a five-year prison sentence, though McCabe disputes that he intentionally misled anyone.

Samantha Bee insults Ivanka Trump with obscene phrase

Samantha Bee insults Ivanka Trump with obscene phrase | 31 May 2018 | Comedian Samantha Bee has apologised after insulting Ivanka Trump with an obscene phrase on her television show. Bee was lambasting the White House adviser and US first daughter over the immigration policy of her father President Donald Trump. Conservatives demanded Bee be fired like Roseanne Barr, whose sitcom was cancelled this week after she posted a racist tweet..."You know, Ivanka, that's a beautiful photo of you and your child, but let me just say, one mother to another, do something about your dad's immigration practices," Bee said. She then called Ms Trump a "feckless [c---]". The term she used is widely viewed as the most offensive epithet to call a woman. Bee urged the first daughter to confront her father about [immigration] policy. "He listens to you," she said. "Put on something tight and low-cut and tell your father to [f---ing] stop it."

New Bipartisan Bill Could Give Any President the Power to Imprison U.S. Citizens in Military Detention Forever

New Bipartisan Bill Could Give Any President the Power to Imprison U.S. Citizens in Military Detention Forever | 01 May 2018 | One of the most outrageous acts of Barack Obama's presidency was his failure to veto the National Defense Authorization Act for fiscal year 2012. The fiscal year 2012 NDAA included provisions that appeared to both codify and expand a power the executive branch had previously claimed to possess -- namely, the power to hold individuals, including U.S. citizens, in military detention indefinitely -- based on the Authorization to Use Military Force passed by Congress three days after 9/11... Not surprisingly, Obama's decision generated enormous outcry across the political spectrum, from Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, on the right to Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., on the left. ...[N]ow, incredibly enough, a bipartisan group of six lawmakers, led by Sens. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., and Tim Kaine, D-Va., is proposing a new AUMF that would greatly expand who the president can place in indefinite military detention, all in the name of restricting presidential power. If the Corker-Kaine bill becomes law as currently written, any president, including Donald Trump, could plausibly claim extraordinarily broad power to order the military to imprison any U.S. citizen, captured in America or not, and hold them without charges essentially forever.

'Assassinated' journalist Babchenko alive, Kiev accuses Russian intelligence of murder plot

'Assassinated' journalist Babchenko alive, Kiev accuses Russian intelligence of murder plot | 30 May 2018 | The reported killing of Russian journalist Arkady Babchenko on Tuesday in Kiev was actually a ruse played by the Ukrainian law enforcement to prevent a planned hit, the Ukrainian authorities said. Reporting on the high profile case on Wednesday, the head of the SBU, Ukraine's national security service, Sergey Gritsak said Babchenko was alive and unhurt. After reports of Babchenko's killing, some Ukrainian officials rushed to accuse Russian intelligence services of masterminding the assassination... The change of Babchenko's status from murder victim to SBU agent didn't stop Kiev from making accusations against Moscow.

Missouri governor resigns amid widening investigations

Missouri governor resigns amid widening investigations | 29 May 2018 | Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens, a sometimes brash political outsider whose unconventional resume as a Rhodes scholar and Navy SEAL officer made him a rising star in the Republican Party, resigned Tuesday amid a widening investigation that arose from an affair with his former hairdresser. The 44-year-old governor spent nearly six months fighting to stay in office after the affair became public in January in a television news report that aired immediately following his State of the State address. The probes into his conduct by prosecutors and lawmakers began with allegations stemming from the affair and expanded to include questions about whether he violated campaign-finance laws. Greitens said his resignation would take effect Friday.

However, Sessions declined to walk back his decision.

Tommy Robinson jailed for 13 months after breaking contempt of court laws

Tommy Robinson jailed for 13 months after breaking contempt of court laws | 29 May 2018 | EDL leader-turned independent journalist Tommy Robinson was jailed for 13 months for contempt of court. Leeds Crown Court blocked the media from publishing anything about Robinson's imprisonment via reporting restrictions. Robinson was on a suspended sentence, as he had previously been arrested for contempt of court after filming outside Canterbury Crown Court in May. The reporting restriction had prevented the publication of any content to do with Robinson's arrest and subsequent imprisonment. The Independent and Leeds Live, however, successfully challenged the reporting restriction on Tuesday.
