'Russian situation is completely overblown' - new WH communications director | 23 July 2017 | The scandal around the US officials allegedly colluding with the Russian government has been "overblown" and serves to "to take the president off his agenda," Donald Trump's new communications director, Anthony Scaramucci has said ... On Sunday, the newly appointed White House communications director appeared on CNN's 'State of the Union' program addressing questions on alleged Trump-Russia interactions ... "I was there early on in the campaign. I didn't have any interactivity with the Russians. I didn't see anybody have interactivity with the Russians. It is a completely bogus and nonsensical thing," Scaramucci said. "You guys have to manufacture these scandals to take the president off his agenda," he added.

Temperatures outside the vehicle topped 100 degrees F (37.8 C).

EU concerned over US bill on Russia sanctions, warns of 'unintended consequences'

EU concerned over US bill on Russia sanctions, warns of 'unintended consequences' | 23 July 2017 | Brussels has urged US lawmakers to coordinate their anti-Russia actions with European partners, as Washington steams ahead with a new bill to expand sanctions against Moscow. "Unilateral measures" could undermine transatlantic unity and have "unintended consequences," the EU warned. On Saturday, US Republicans and Democrats reached agreement to clear any further hurdles for proposed legislation which seeks to apply additional sanctions on Russia. The measure, if signed into law, will also give Congress veto powers to block any easing of Russian sanctions by the president.

Interpol circulates list of 173 suspected members of Isis suicide brigade

Interpol circulates list of 173 suspected members of Isis suicide brigade --Agency believes the fighters could have been trained to bomb Europe as revenge for military defeats in Middle East | 21 July 2017 | Interpol has circulated a list of 173 Islamic State fighters it believes could have been trained to mount suicide attacks in Europe in revenge for the group's military defeats in the Middle East. The global crime fighting agency's list was drawn up by US intelligence from information captured during the assault on Isis territories in Syria and Iraq. European counter-terror networks are concerned that as the Isis "caliphate" collapses, there is an increasing risk of determined suicide bombers seeking to come to Europe, probably operating alone.

Protests erupt at Minneapolis mayor's press conference announcing police chief resignation | 21 July 2017 | In a raucous press conference on Friday evening Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges announced the resignation of Minneapolis Police Chief Jane Harteau. The resignation came in the wake of the fatal shooting of an Australian woman by a police officer on July 15. "We need new leadership at MPD," Hodges said. "I asked Chief Harteau for her resignation, she tendered it and I accepted it." The presser quickly turned into a back and forth debate with a protester who was in attendance.

US contributed to creation of ISIS, now tries to claim victory over it - Iraqi VP

US contributed to creation of ISIS, now tries to claim victory over it - Iraqi VP | 22 July 2017 The recapture of Mosul is an achievement of the Iraqi people while the US is trying to highjack it and claims it was them who "led that war," Iraq's Vice President Nouri al-Maliki has told the RIA Novosti news agency. "Yes, they supported us with aviation, but the main credit goes to the Iraqi soldiers, people's militia, Iraqi air force," al-Maliki stated in his interview with the Russian news agency. He added that he "regrets and denies [Americans] claiming the victory [in Mosul] is their achievement."...While the US has provided support to the Iraqi army and allied forces, it has contributed to the emergence of IS in the first place, al-Maliki claimed, adding that Washington now seeks to establish military bases on Iraqi territory in order to maintain influence in the region. "IS resembles the Taliban which was created by the US administration to counter the USSR in Afghanistan. The same way, IS was created to counter the Iraqi stance, which did not agree to blockade Syria, was against no-fly zones in Syria and against American military bases," he stated.

U.S. Lawmakers Seek to Criminally Outlaw Support for Boycott Campaign Against Israel

U.S. Lawmakers Seek to Criminally Outlaw Support for Boycott Campaign Against Israel | 19 July 2017 | A group of 43 senators -- 29 Republicans and 14 Democrats -- wants to implement a law that would make it a felony for Americans to support the international boycott against Israel, which was launched in protest of that country's decades-old occupation of Palestine. The two primary sponsors of the bill are Democrat Ben Cardin of Maryland and Republican Rob Portman of Ohio. Perhaps the most shocking aspect is the punishment: Anyone guilty of violating the prohibitions will face a minimum civil penalty of $250,000 and a maximum criminal penalty of $1 million and 20 years in prison. The proposed measure, called the Israel Anti-Boycott Act (S. 720), was introduced by Cardin on March 23. The Jewish Telegraphic Agency reports that the bill "was drafted with the assistance of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee."

New York Times reporter accuses white women of racism on city sidewalks for not making space for him when walking

New York Times reporter accuses white women of racism on city sidewalks for not making space for him when walking --Greg Howard said white women are the only group who don't courteously move --Howard theorizes that it's because white women have 'been taught that they should fear black men' | 22 July 2017 | A New York Times reporter is facing blowback after an article in which he accused white women of racism for not yielding to him on city sidewalks. Greg Howard, a writer for the Sunday Metropolitan Section, in a Wednesday essay titled Was That Racist?, said white women in particular will not make space for him when he's walking down the street. He also added that there are times when he's had to step off the sidewalk and into the road, making him 'feel small'.

Feds Say FPL Can Store Nuclear Waste Below Miami's Drinking Water Because It's 'Not Likely' to Leak

Feds Say FPL Can Store Nuclear Waste Below Miami's Drinking Water Because It's 'Not Likely' to Leak | 21 July 2017 | Florida Power & Light's Turkey Point Nuclear Generating Station is already leaking dangerous salt water into the aquifers that are Miami's largest source of drinking water. Despite that alarming fact, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) recently ruled that FPL can move forward with a plan to build two new nuclear reactors and store nuclear waste -- including radioactive material -- in an area just below those same aquifers. Environmentalists warn a leak would threaten the water supply of 2.7 million people, but the feds last week ruled that such a leak is "not likely," and that even if one were to occur, it "would likely be detected and resolved prior to any significant release to the Upper Floridan Aquifer," one of Miami-Dade County's two water stores.

Tepco Spots Possible Nuclear Fuel Debris at Another Fukushima Reactor - Kyodo

Tepco Spots Possible Nuclear Fuel Debris at Another Fukushima Reactor - Kyodo | 21 July 2017 | Tokyo Electric Power (Tepco), the operator of Japan's wrecked Fukushima nuclear plant, may have found nuclear fuel debris below the damaged No. 3 reactor, one of three that had meltdowns in the 2011 disaster, Kyodo News reported on Friday. Tepco detected black-colored material that dangled like icicles that could be nuclear debris near the bottom of the reactor's pressure vessel that contained the highly radioactive melted fuel rods, the report said, citing unnamed sources...The company in January spotted possible nuclear fuel debris below the damaged No. 2 reactor at the plant.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders Named White House Press Secretary

Sarah Huckabee Sanders named new White House press secretary | 21 July 2017 | Sarah Huckabee Sanders was named the new White House press secretary Friday afternoon following the resignation of Sean Spicer. Spicer resigned Friday after President Donald Trump appointed New York financier Anthony Scaramucci to communications director. In a tweet, Spicer said he would continue in his role until August. Sanders, as Spicer's deputy, had recently taken more of a prominent role in the White House communications as she took over the daily briefings and turned them into off-camera events. Scaramucci told reporters Friday that Trump thought Sanders does a "phenomenal job."

Spicer resigns as White House press secretary; Scaramucci to be communications director

Spicer resigns as White House press secretary; Scaramucci to be communications director | 21 July 2017 | White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer resigned Friday in a move apparently tied to the hiring of a new top communications aide, marking a major shakeup in the president's press shop at an already tumultuous time. Spicer's departure was confirmed just moments after President Trump met with the man being tapped for White House communications director, Wall Street financier Anthony Scaramucci. Speculation about Spicer's status with the White House has run rampant for months, but the appointment of Scaramucci was seen as a deciding factor in his resignation.

Class and Race Profiling in the Vaccine Culture War

Class and Race Profiling in the Vaccine Culture War | 17 July 2017 | The Vaccine Culture War is heating up. Ground zero is America, Europe and other economically developed countries, where the pharmaceutical industrial complex is raising an iron fist to protect multi-billion dollar profits by disempowering the people. In America, professors and doctors in academia and government are profiling parents by class and race to shame and discredit those challenging vaccine orthodoxy...That "punish the mothers" Op Ed was preceded by a May 8 Boston Herald editorial revealing just how far the persecution of people advocating for vaccine safety and informed consent has gone. The Boston Herald editorial staff called for the execution of individuals who exercise free speech about vaccine risks and failures. As in, it should be "a hanging offense" to inform parents (especially to inform parents in "immigrant communities") that vaccines carry an unpredictable risk of injury or death and often fail to work as advertised.

Thousands of extra IDF troops put on call in West Bank amid Temple Mount tensions

Thousands of extra IDF troops put on call in West Bank amid Temple Mount tensions | 20 July 2017 | The Israeli army will put thousands of extra troops on alert in the West Bank ahead of Friday prayers at Jerusalem's Temple Mount, fearing that clashes over security measures implemented at the holy site will spread. The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) announced on Thursday that it would be putting five extra battalions on call in the West Bank, adding that they could be deployed if backup is needed, the Jerusalem Post reported. The army fears that clashes could erupt on Friday, as Muslims make their way to the Temple Mount for prayers. Jerusalem police will also be reinforced by thousands of special police forces, according to Haaretz.

A Critique of 'Social Justice' Ideology: Thinking through Marx and Nietzsche

CLG Exclusive: A Critique of 'Social Justice' Ideology: Thinking through Marx and Nietzsche --By Michael Rectenwald 20/07/2017

To date, I have yet to examine the philosophical premises of the social justice creed, or formally to offer a theoretical framework or set of frameworks for critiquing and refuting it. This essay represents a first effort at doing both...
First, I will briefly trace a Soviet and a few postmodernist contributions to social justice ideology. Then, I will turn my attention to two major thinkers: Karl Marx and Friedrich Nietzsche – in order to find ways that the two thinkers may be adduced to provide resources for understanding and critically assessing the social justice ideology.

Moderately strong earthquake hits off Japan's Fukushima

Moderately strong earthquake hits off Japan's Fukushima | 20 July 2017 | A moderately strong earthquake struck off the coast of Japan's Fukushima on Thursday but no fresh damage to the crippled nuclear power plant there was reported and there was no risk of a tsunami, officials said. The 5.8-magnitude quake hit at 9:11 am local time off Fukushima prefecture in the Pacific Ocean with the epicentre located 34 kilometres under the sea, according to the US Geological Survey. "We have found no (new) abnormality so far" at the Fukushima Daiichi plant, said a spokesman at Tokyo Electric Power Co., the operator.

Supreme Court allows Trump refugee ban but backs broader exemptions for relatives

Supreme Court allows Trump refugee ban but backs broader exemptions for relatives | 19 July 2017 | The Supreme Court on Wednesday brokered a new compromise over President Trump’s travel ban, saying the government for now may enforce tight restrictions on refugees but also must make it easier for people from six mostly Muslim countries to enter the United States. The court's terse order means the administration cannot impose a blanket prohibition on people from those countries who have grandparents, aunts, uncles and other relatives in the United States. The Trump administration has advanced a stricter interpretation of what kind of family relationships could entitle a person to receive a U.S. visa, but a lower court in Hawaii ruled that the criteria were too tight.

Australian woman shot in Minneapolis called twice to report an assault

Australian woman shot in Minneapolis called twice to report an assault | 19 July 2017 | Shortly before she was fatally shot by a Minneapolis police officer, Justine Damond made two 911 calls to help a nearby woman she thought was possibly being sexually assaulted, according to transcripts released on Wednesday by police. The death of Australian native Damond from a single gunshot has sparked outrage among family members and the public, and led Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull to call it "shocking" and "inexplicable." In the 911 calls, Damond reported hearing sounds of a woman screaming.

Sen. John McCain has brain cancer, aggressive tumor surgically removed | 19 July 2017 | Sen. John McCain, 80, has been diagnosed with a primary glioblastoma, a type of brain tumor, Mayo Clinic doctors directly involved in the senator's care told CNN exclusively. The senator underwent surgery to remove a blood clot on Friday at Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix. Lab results from that surgery confirmed the presence of brain cancer associated with the blood clot. Glioblastoma is a particularly aggressive tumor that forms in the tissue of the brain and spinal cord, according to the American Brain Tumor Association.

Donald Trump Jr., Paul Manafort called to testify before Senate Judiciary Committee

Donald Trump Jr., Paul Manafort called to testify before Senate Judiciary Committee | 19 July 2017 | Donald Trump Jr. has been called to testify next week before the Senate Judiciary Committee about Russia's [alleged] attempted meddling in the presidential race, according to an advisory from the committee. The president's son has been in the [fake] news over his June 2016 meeting with a Russian attorney over possible damaging information on Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Trump ends covert CIA program to arm anti-Assad 'rebels' in Syria

Trump ends covert CIA program to arm anti-Assad 'rebels' in Syria | 19 July 2017 | President Trump has decided to end the CIA's covert program to arm and train moderate Syrian rebels terrorists battling the government of Bashar al-Assad, a move long sought by Russia, according to U.S. officials. The program was a central plank of a [disastrous] policy begun by the Obama administration in 2013 to put pressure on Assad to step aside, but even its backers have questioned its efficacy since Russia deployed forces in Syria two years later. Officials said the phasing out of the secret program reflects Trump's interest in finding ways to work with Russia, which saw the anti-Assad program as an assault on its interests. The shuttering of the program is also an acknowledgment of Washington's limited leverage and desire to remove Assad from power.

Student who graded his ex-girlfriend's misspelled apology note a D then tweeted it is suspended for cyber bullying

Student who graded his ex-girlfriend's misspelled apology note a D then tweeted it is suspended for cyber bullying - even though she is NOT studying at the same college | 19 July 2017 | A University of Central Florida student who graded his ex's misspelled apology note then tweeted it, has been suspended for cyber bullying. Nick Lutz received the letter from his former flame earlier this year, apologizing for her behaviour during the relationship. But he took the ultimate revenge by picking up on the mistakes in the letter in red pen and sharing it on Twitter. The tweets of the note, which he graded as a D for repetition and bad handwriting, quickly went viral, prompting his ex to file cyberbullying claim. While prosecutors never pursued the charges, Lutz says he has been suspended from his school - despite the fact that his former girlfriend is not a student there.

GOP effort to repeal ObamaCare is already dead

GOP effort to repeal ObamaCare is already dead | 18 July 2017 | A last-ditch plan by Senate Republicans to repeal ObamaCare with a two-year delay in implementing a replacement now appears dead. Three GOP senators -- Susan Collins of Maine, Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska -- said Tuesday they won't support any plan that gets rid of ObamaCare without a replacement in place. The repeal-only strategy was the latest attempt by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to roll back President Barack Obama's health care plan.

Trump to nominate Jon Huntsman as Russia ambassador

Trump to nominate Jon Huntsman as Russia ambassador | 18 July 2017 | President Donald Trump will nominate [useless eater] Jon Huntsman, an envoy to China under former Democratic President Barack Obama, as U.S. ambassador to Russia in an announcement expected later on Tuesday, the White House said. The job requires confirmation by the U.S. Senate...Reports in March that Huntsman would get the Moscow envoy post were greeted with mixed reviews in Moscow, with one politician saying he was "not a dove" and the Kremlin saying it would welcome anyone who was a "convinced proponent" of establishing a dialogue with Russia.

Heartwarming video shows the moment kind lobstermen free a helpless seal pup trapped in fishing nets off Maine coast

Heartwarming video shows the moment kind lobstermen free a helpless seal pup trapped in fishing nets off the coast of Maine | 18 July 2017 | Two lobstermen in Maine earned a name for themselves as harbor heroes after a video was posted to social media showing the pair rescuing a baby seal tangled in a rope of plastic fishing nets. Jeremy Willey and Jeffrey Door spotted the marine mammal offshore over the weekend roughly 10-12 miles beneath Matinicus Rock and 25 miles from Owls Head, according to WCSH-TV. The men hauled the pup aboard the boat shortly after, where they began cutting apart the nets with a knife.

Cop who killed Justine Damond was already under investigation for 'assault and battery' of another woman

Cop who killed Justine Damond was already under investigation for 'assault and battery' of another woman - as chilling audio captures Australian victim's last moments | 17 July 2017 | A rookie police officer who shot dead an Australian woman outside of her Minnesota home was already under investigation for 'violently' forcing a woman to hospital, court documents allege. Mohamed Noor reached over and shot [holistic doctor] Justine Damond, 40, multiple times from the passenger seat of his squad car while she spoke to his colleague on the drivers side in a back alley behind her upscale Minneapolis home. Both officers' bodycams were off and the squad car camera not recording, but an audio exchange between dispatch and the officers involved captures the chilling moments directly after she was killed at around 11.30pm on Saturday...Noor, who joined the Minneapolis Police in March 2015, has reportedly had three complaints made against him in two years - including a lawsuit. Two are from 2017 and one from 2016 is closed and according to Lou Raguse of Kare 11 is marked 'not to be made public'. The lawsuit stems from a police call on May 25, 2017, when Noor and two other officers took a woman to hospital and she claimed that they carried out false imprisonment, assault and battery.

Holistic healer, Dr. Justine Damond, killed by police in Minneapolis

'Holistic Healers Death Toll' surpasses 60: Holistic healer, Dr. Justine Damond, killed by police in Minneapolis | 16 July 2017 | On Saturday night, Dr. Justine Damond, 40, a well known Australian healer and former veterinarian from Sydney, was shot 3 times by police from their car with a rolled down window (some say right through the door) while standing outside at her own home in her pajamas. The police were there because she had just called 911 to report a disturbance she heard in the alley way out back. The alley was WELL LIT with a combination of lights from neighbors' garages and city lighting so she could be seen clearly, say residents...The police who arrived (including the one who shot her) had their cameras turned off. Political leaders are asking why...We've lost so many holistic healers and doctors in just two short years.
