The man depicted as a Nazi in the flyer, who allegedly works as a cook at Dev's, faced charges in 2015 for allegedly yelling obscenities and anti-Semitic remarks at a member of Congregation Beth El. Police were called to the restaurant shortly after 6 p.m. for reports of a disturbance. One of the protesters, Christopher Garaffa, 33, of New Haven, was charged with breach of peace in an altercation with one of Dev's employees.

Manafort Assistant Gave FBI Access to Storage Locker - Testimony

Manafort Assistant Gave FBI Access to Storage Locker - Testimony | 29 June 2018 | A personal assistant to Paul Manafort granted the FBI access to a storage locker, allowing the government to secure evidence that President Donald Trump's former campaign manager is trying to suppress, according to testimony on Friday in a federal court hearing in Virginia. FBI special agent Jeff Pfeiffer made the disclosure at a hearing to consider whether evidence from the locker and a separate search of Manafort's home, both in the Washington, D.C., suburb of Alexandria, could be used in a Manafort trial set for July. Manafort's lawyers have sought to suppress the searches as part of a broader attempt to discredit the investigation of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is probing whether Trump's campaign worked with Russia to sway the election. Manafort, who is now in jail, has been charged mainly for financial crimes not related to the campaign.

Supreme Court deals major blow to public sector unions

Supreme Court deals major blow to public sector unions | 27 June 2018 | The Supreme Court dealt a major blow to public sector unions on Wednesday in a case that could shake their financial structure and undermine their future stability. The justices struck down an Illinois law that required non-union workers to pay fees that go to collective bargaining and overturned a 1977 law that required employees to pay so-called "fair share" fees. The ruling was 5-4 along familiar ideological lines...Wednesday is the second time in recent weeks where a 5-4 court has infuriated advocates for workers' rights. The court ruled in May that employers could require employees to sign class action waivers in employment arbitration agreements that bar them from banding together to fight legal disputes.

Trump begins Supreme Court search to replace Anthony Kennedy

Trump begins Supreme Court search to replace Anthony Kennedy | 28 June 2018 | US President Donald Trump has said the search for a replacement for retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy will "begin immediately". "We have to pick one that's going to be there for 40 years, 45 years," Mr Trump said at a rally in North Dakota. The retirement of Mr Kennedy, a conservative who sided with liberals on many votes, gives Mr Trump the chance to shift the balance of the top court further to the right for decades to come. The judge, 81, will retire on 31 July.

Supreme Court rules for Texas in redistricting case

Supreme Court rules for Texas in redistricting case | 25 June 2018 | The Supreme Court on Monday largely ruled in favor of Texas, reviving congressional and legislative districts that were struck down by a lower court for diluting the votes of black and Hispanic voters. In a 5-4 decision, the justices said there isn't enough evidence to prove that state Republicans acted in bad faith and engaged in intentional discrimination when it adopted new maps in 2013 for two congressional districts and several legislative districts. But the court said the lower court was correct in ruling that one legislative district was a racial gerrymander.

Judge rejects Manafort's challenge to Mueller's legitimacy

Judge rejects Manafort's challenge to Mueller's legitimacy | 26 June 2018 | A federal judge on Tuesday rejected former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort's challenge to the authority of special counsel Robert Mueller. The ruling from U.S. District Court Judge T.S. Ellis III dashes the hopes of many allies of President Donald Trump's that Ellis would deliver a crippling blow to Mueller's office and undermine the legal legitimacy of his appointment. During oral arguments last month relating to bank and tax fraud charges against Manafort, Ellis skewered the special prosecutor's team, suggesting they were on a crusade aimed at impeaching Trump. Ellis's 31-page written opinion is rife with skepticism about the special counsel mechanism and about Mueller's pursuit of fraud charges against Manafort. But the judge ultimately concluded that Manafort's attorneys had not made a sufficient legal case to justify tossing out his indictment.

House immigration bill will not include mandate on checking employees' legal status

House immigration bill will not include mandate on checking employees' legal status [Ergo, it is *useless* - except to its corporate benefactors.] | 26 June 2018 ] In effort to mandate that every employer use a system to check that their employees are working in the country legally was rejected by House leaders Tuesday -- a strong signal that those pushing immigration reform do not believe it has enough support to be passed as part of a comprehensive immigration bill. The failure of the E-Verify plan -- which was eagerly sought by conservatives wary of the bill -- means the House will instead vote on a plan that still includes a path to citizenship for 1.8 million Dreamers, people brought to the country illegally as children. Farm groups Agribusiness strongly opposed the defeated employee verification system.

Strzok was questioned for hours before the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday. Members of the committee sat in for a confidential briefing with Strzok, firing off questions about the start of the Russia investigation and questions on the Clinton email investigation.

Chris Matthews: Dems Should Boycott Trump Court Nominee

Chris Matthews: Dems Should Boycott Trump Court Nominee | 27 June 2018 | MSNBC's Chris Matthews called on Democrats to obstruct the nomination of Justice Anthony Kennedy’s replacement to the Supreme Court Wednesday, minutes after Kennedy announced his retirement. "I don't think the Democrats should allow even meetings to occur for Trump's nominee to fill this vacancy by Justice Kennedy,” Matthews said on MSNBC's Hardball. "I think they have to fight eye for an eye for what happened in ’16, where the Republicans led by Mitch McConnell refused to even consider or meet with Merrick Garland. I think if the Democratic leadership under Schumer allows this to go forward, they’re going to have a huge problem with the Democratic base."

House Rejects Immigration Bill After GOP Fails to Reach Agreement

House Rejects Immigration Bill After GOP Fails to Reach Agreement --Border wall left unfunded | 27 June 2018 | House Republicans fell far short on their second attempt to pass a GOP-only immigration bill, notching one more failure on President Donald Trump's signature issue just months before they try to defend their majority in midterm elections. The attempt to come up with legislation that would appeal to moderate and conservative Republicans failed, 121 to 301. The defeat of the bill, which even its backers anticipated, capped more than a month of intense GOP negotiations...

DNC fight over superdelegates nears resolution

DNC fight over superdelegates nears resolution | 27 June 2018 | Democratic National Committee officials on Wednesday moved forward with a proposal to reduce the influence of superdelegates in the party's presidential nomination process, edging closer to resolving a long-simmering dispute between supporters of Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. The rule change, approved in concept by the DNC's Rules and Bylaws Committee, would prohibit superdelegates from voting on the first presidential nominating ballot at a contested national convention. Only if a candidate had earned enough pledged delegates from state parties and caucuses to win the nomination would superdelegates be allowed to vote on the first ballot.

Judge orders US to reunite families separated at border within 30 days; sooner for under 5

Judge orders US to reunite families separated at border within 30 days; sooner for under 5 | 27 June 2018 | A judge in California on Tuesday ordered U.S. border authorities to reunite separated families within 30 days, setting a hard deadline in a process that has so far yielded uncertainty about when children might again see their parents. If children are younger than 5, they must be reunified within 14 days of the order issued Tuesday by U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw in San Diego. Sabraw, an appointee of President [sic] George W. Bush, also issued a nationwide injunction on future family separations, unless the parent is deemed unfit or doesn't want to be with the child. He also requires the government provide phone contact between parents and their children within 10 days.

Justice Anthony Kennedy to Retire From Supreme Court

Breaking: Justice Anthony Kennedy to Retire From Supreme Court | 27 June 2018 | Justice Anthony M. Kennedy announced on Wednesday that he would retire, setting the stage for a furious fight over the future direction of the Supreme Court. Justice Kennedy, 81, has long been the decisive vote in many closely divided cases. His retirement gives President Trump the opportunity to fundamentally change the course of the Supreme Court. A Trump appointee would very likely create a solid five-member conservative majority that could imperil abortion rights and expand gun rights...Justice Kennedy wrote the majority opinion in Citizens United, which allowed unlimited campaign spending by corporations and unions [aka Deep State], and he joined the majority in Bush v. Gore, which handed the 2000 presidential election [aka coup d'etat] to George W. Bush.

White House, Kremlin agree on time and place for Trump-Putin summit | 27 June 2018 | The White House and the Kremlin have agreed on a time and place for a summit meeting between President Trump and Vladi­mir Putin, a Russian official said Wednesday after talks here between the Russian president and national security adviser John Bolton. The details of the much-anticipated meeting will be announced Thursday, the official, Kremlin foreign policy adviser Yuri Ushakov, told reporters. The meeting is expected to take place in mid-July, when Trump will be in Europe for previously scheduled visits to Belgium and Britain..."Your visit here to Moscow inspires hope that we will be able to take first steps to restore full-fledged relations between Russia and the United States," Putin said.

US seeks to install $1bn radar in Hawaii to detect ballistic missiles; installation mandated by NDAA under Obama

Obama's Deep State defense industry giveaway: US seeks to install $1bn radar in Hawaii to detect ballistic missiles; installation mandated by NDAA under Obama | 27 June 2018 | The Pentagon wants to spend $1 billion to install missile defense radar in Hawaii to [allegedly] track ballistic threats coming from North Korea or elsewhere, according to officials. The flat-face surface radar would "counter evolving missile threats in the Pacific Region", the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) says. Although the timing of the radar's construction seems curious given current efforts at rapprochement with North Korea, plans for the military installation actually predate the Trump administration. The radar system was [insanely] mandated by the 2017 National Defense Authorization Act, which was signed into law by Barack Obama in December 2016.
