Barr Forms Team to Review FBI's Actions in Trump Probe

Barr Forms Team to Review FBI's Actions in Trump Probe --Inquiry comes as House GOP pushes claims of anti-Trump bias | 09 April 2019 | Attorney General William Barr has assembled a team to review controversial counterintelligence decisions made by Justice Department and FBI officials, including actions taken during the probe of the Trump campaign in the summer of 2016, according to a person familiar with the matter. This indicates that Barr is looking into allegations that Republican lawmakers have been pursuing for more than a year -- that the investigation into President Donald Trump and possible collusion with Russia was tainted at the start by anti-Trump bias in the FBI and Justice Department. Barr's inquiry is separate from a long-running investigation by the Justice Department's inspector general, said the person, who asked not to be identified discussing sensitive matters.

Federal judge blocks Trump administration's 'remain in Mexico' policy

Federal judge blocks Trump administration's 'remain in Mexico' policy | 09 April 2019 | A judge for the US District Court for the Northern District of California granted a preliminary injunction Monday to halt the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) that were sending certain asylum seekers back across the Mexico border while they await a court determination. The policy was intended to reduce the flood of immigrants. The plaintiffs in the case, 11 asylum seekers who were sent back across the border, argued the policies are "wholly inadequate for ensuring that those who face persecution, torture, or death in Mexico will not be erroneously returned." They also argued that remaining in Mexico denied them the opportunity to adequately prepare their case.

NYC's de Blasio deploys 'disease detectives' after declaring a health emergency; issues mandatory vaccination orders for parts of Brooklyn --NYC's 'Disease detectives' will trace those who show symptoms of measles --Individuals who don't get vaccinated will face $1,000 fine (WABC)

Measles Outbreak: New York City Orders Mandatory Vaccinations in Parts of Brooklyn --Public health emergency decree also imposes fines for noncompliance | 09 April 2019 | New York City officials declared a public health emergency Tuesday in parts of Brooklyn in response to a measles outbreak in the Orthodox Jewish community, calling for mandatory measles-mumps-rubella vaccinations in certain ZIP Codes and imposing fines for noncompliance. The move is the first time the city has required mandatory vaccinations...

New York City orders mandatory vaccines for parts of Brooklyn (Williamsburg, Brooklyn) New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio declared a public health emergency Tuesday in the ongoing measles outbreak affecting the Orthodox Jewish community and ordered mandatory vaccinations in several neighborhoods. The order applies to anyone living, working or going to school in four zip codes in Williamsburg and requires all non-vaccinated people who may have been exposed receive the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine, including all children over 6 months old. Those zip codes are 11205, 11206, 11221 and 11249. Under the mandatory vaccinations, members of the city's Department of Health and Mental Hygiene will check the vaccination records of any person who may have been in contact with infected patients.

Medical tyranny: If you question vaccines in Australia, you could be thrown in prison for ten years

Medical tyranny: If you question vaccines in Australia, you could be thrown in prison for ten years | 09 April 2019 | Freedom of speech has taken another major hit Down Under, as government authorities in Australia recently decreed that any medical professional who dares to express skepticism about the safety or effectiveness of vaccines will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law, including a potential prison sentence of up to ten years. Nurses and midwives who try to explain to pregnant women that some vaccines contain neurotoxic mercury (thimerosal), for instance...will now face the ire of Australia's medical police state, which insists that all vaccines are 100 percent safe and effective. The Australian government has also set up a snitch program for medical "offenders" to be reported by their "friends," colleagues, or others who suspect that they might be in violation of this new speech code -- like some kind of deep state spying and surveillance scheme contrived from the dystopian novel 1984.

William Barr Says Mueller Report Will Be Public 'Within a Week'

William Barr Says Mueller Report Will Be Public 'Within a Week' | 09 April 2019 | Updates: Attorney General William P. Barr said he will deliver the Mueller report to Congress and the public within a week, reiterating his earlier promise to release it by mid-April. Testifying before the House Appropriations Committee on Tuesday, Mr. Barr said he would be transparent about redactions in the report. But he demurred when asked whether he has briefed the White House on it. The Justice Department inspector general expects to finish an examination of aspects of the Russia investigation by May or June, Mr. Barr revealed. Mr. Barr has tried to keep the appropriations hearing focused on the department's proposed $29.2 billion budget, which includes money for 100 new immigration judges as President Trump hardens his stance on immigration along the southwestern border.

US forces: 3 US troops killed, Afghan contractor wounded

US forces: 3 US troops killed, Afghan contractor wounded | 09 April 2019 | U.S. forces in Afghanistan revised on Tuesday the death toll from a Taliban attack the previous day near the main American base in the country, saying two U.S. soldiers and a Marine were killed but not a contractor who was initially reported among the fatalities. The U.S. and NATO Resolute Support mission issued a statement "to clarify initial reporting" about Monday's roadside bombing of an American convoy near the main U.S. base. The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack.

Israel Election 2019: Gantz and Netanyahu Tied; No Clear Path to Premiership for Either - Exit Polls

Israel Election 2019: Gantz and Netanyahu Tied; No Clear Path to Premiership for Either - Exit Polls --Netanyahu's party places 1,200 hidden cameras in Arab polling sites --6.3 million people eligible to vote | Apr 09, 2019 10:10 PM | Shocking exit polls destroyed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's hopes of an easy victory in the Israeli election Tuesday night. The exit polls published immediately after voting ended were contradictory: in some, Netanyahu's rival for the premiership, Benny Gantz, held a clear lead, while others showed the two candidates virtually tied. Most importantly, however, after the number of Knesset seats among the numerous small parties in the race were counted, it was clear that neither leader would be able to easily assemble a majority sufficient for a ruling coalition among the right- and left-wing blocs.

Unclear debris map casts shadow over decommissioning of Fukushima plant

Unclear debris map casts shadow over decommissioning of Fukushima plant | 09 April 2019 | The government and Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) are set to launch full-scale probes of the inside of the No. 1 through No. 3 reactors at the disaster-stricken Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station this fiscal year, in an attempt to determine which reactor to work on first to remove [radioactive] fuel debris -- a critical step for decommissioning the facility... The radiation level of the material, measured at a distance of some 30 centimeters, was 7.6 sieverts per hour, far less than anticipated. If the sediment contained a good portion of nuclear fuel, the radiation doses ought to have been several hundred sieverts per hour, even eight years after the 2011 nuclear meltdowns. This finding suggested that the sediment that TEPCO came in contact with in the survey was not the main nuclear fuel debris it was looking for...The question now is whether fuel debris exists beneath the surface of the sediment or if nuclear fuel still remains within the reactor pressure vessel, or even somewhere else. There are currently no prospects for TEPCO to ascertain an accurate distributions of debris.

Your car is watching you. Who owns the data?

Your car is watching you. Who owns the data? --Computers on wheels raise thorny questions about data privacy | 09 April 2019 | If you're driving a late model car or truck, chances are that the vehicle is mostly computers on wheels, collecting and wirelessly transmitting vast quantities of data to the car manufacturer not just on vehicle performance but personal information, too, such as your weight, the restaurants you visit, your music tastes and places you go. A car can generate about 25 gigabytes of data every hour and as much as 4,000 gigabytes a day, according to some estimates. The data trove in the hands of car makers could be worth as much as $750 billion by 2030, the consulting firm McKinsey has estimated. But consumer groups, aftermarket repair shops and privacy advocates say the data belongs to the car's owners and the information should be subject to data privacy laws.

Judge rules new York County can't ban unvaccinated children from schools, parks | 06 April 2019 | Ten days after a new York county banned unvaccinated children from public places, a state judge put the injunction on hold. "Children are hereby permitted to return to their respective schools forthwith and otherwise to assemble in public places," judge Rolf Thorsen wrote in his Friday decision. The controversial ban, announced by a spokesman for Rockland County Executive Ed Day, was an effort to address an outbreak in Rockland County, where 167 confirmed cases of measles had been reported as of Friday. [Why are those who got the measles vaccine getting the measles? No one ever asks this question...]

N.Y. man charged for making death threats against Rep. Ilhan Omar | 05 April 2019 | A man from upstate New York has been charged with threatening to assault and murder U.S. Rep.

Cory Booker introduces Senate bill on slavery reparations | 08 April 2019 | Sen. Cory Booker on Monday introduced a bill that would study the possibility of reparations for descendants of slaves, embracing a push that recently has caught the interest of fellow 2020 Democratic presidential candidates. The measure is a Senate companion to a bill introduced in the House of Representatives in January by Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas, which if passed into law would set up a commission to study the impact of slavery and continued discrimination against black Americans and make recommendations on reparation proposals for the descendants of slaves. The legislation was first introduced 30 years ago by then-Rep. John Conyers of Michigan.

US designates Iran's Revolutionary Guards as terrorist organization - Trump | 08 April 2019 | The US has designated Iran's Revolutionary Guards as a "terrorist organization," accusing the elite force of financing and promoting terrorism in the region. Tehran is now eyeing a mirror response for the American military. The move marks the first time the US has ever designated part of another government as a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO). Any support or business with the unit will amount to "bankrolling terrorism," the statement reads further. In a direct response, the Iranian Supreme Security Council branded the US "a terrorist government" and labeled the US Central Command (CENTCOM) and "all its affiliates" as a terrorist group.

Amazon Is on a Digital Book Burning Spree

Amazon Is on a Digital Book Burning Spree | 08 April 2019 | Under pressure from left-wing journalists and activists, Amazon is purging right-wing authors from its store, including a book co-authored by English Islam critic and independent commentator Tommy Robinson. The web retail giant has become the dominant market player in book sales, accounting for nearly 50 percent of physical and 83 percent of e-book sales in the U.S. As such, Amazon has the power to effectively cut an author off from the vast majority of the books market...In 2010, Amazon refused to take down a book defending pedophilia on first amendment grounds. "Amazon believes it is censorship not sell certain books simply because we or others believe their message is objectionable," an Amazon representative told CNBC at the time.

Ukrainian to US prosecutors: Why don't you want our evidence on Democrats? | 07 April 2019 | Ukrainian law enforcement officials believe they have evidence of wrongdoing by American Democrats and their allies in Kiev, ranging from 2016 election interference to obstructing criminal probes. But, they say, they've been thwarted in trying to get the Trump Justice Department to act.

Nils Melzer, UN special rapporteur on torture, voiced concern that Assange's health was in "serious decline" and that, if he were expelled, he was likely to be arrested by British authorities and extradited to the United States.

Joe Biden's 2020 Ukrainian nightmare: A closed probe is revived

Joe Biden's 2020 Ukrainian nightmare: A closed probe is revived | 01 April 2019 | Two years after leaving office, Joe Biden couldn’t resist the temptation last year to brag to an audience of foreign policy specialists about the time as vice president that he strong-armed Ukraine into firing its top prosecutor. In his own words, with video cameras rolling, Biden described how he threatened Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko in March 2016 that the Obama administration would pull $1 billion in U.S. loan guarantees, sending the former Soviet republic toward insolvency, if it didn't immediately fire Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin...But Ukrainian officials tell me [John Solomon] there was one crucial piece of information that Biden must have known but didn’t mention to his audience: The prosecutor he got fired was leading a wide-ranging corruption probe into the natural gas firm Burisma Holdings that employed Biden's younger son, Hunter, as a board member. U.S. banking records show Hunter Biden's American-based firm, Rosemont Seneca Partners LLC, received regular transfers into one of its accounts -- usually more than $166,000 a month -- from Burisma from spring 2014 through fall 2015, during a period when Vice President Biden was the main U.S. official dealing with Ukraine and its tense relations with Russia.
