Manafort prosecutors, Judge Ellis engage in 10-minute courtroom spat

Manafort prosecutors, Judge Ellis engage in 10-minute courtroom spat | 06 Aug 2018 | After jurors were dismissed Monday in the Paul Manafort trial Monday, the federal judge overseeing the case and prosecutors trying the former Trump campaign chairman got into an extended verbal debate -- lasting about 10 minutes -- over the merits of the prosecution, the length of the case and even the eye contact of prosecutor Greg Andres. U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III specifically pushed Andres on why the prosecution was moving slowly with Rick Gates -- the former Manafort business partner who testified on Monday -- and specifically to describe the link between wealthy Ukrainian politicos and Manafort. Ellis argued that the connection was not the basis of the case. "What matters are the allegations that he made money from them and didn't report it," Ellis said. "You don't need to throw mud at these people."

Primary one children in Scotland will be told 'your gender is what you decide' --Guidelines set to come into effect in 2019 | 06 Aug 2018 | Children from the age of five could be taught in school that they should "decide" their gender.

Under the draft guidelines created by Education Scotland, NHS boards and the Scottish Government, children will be told in classrooms that "Your gender is what you decide." But politicians and experts have warned that the plans risk confusing young children before they are ready to understand gender and identity.

"They purposely cause great division & distrust," he added. "They can also cause War! They are very dangerous & sick!" [Exactly. Remember when Dick Cheney pimped out Deep State dirt-bag Judy Miller to spread 'Iraq has WMDs' stories on every Sunday talk show and through The New York Times?]

Sea water used to cool Finland's Loviisa nuclear reactors has become too warm

Sea water used to cool Finland's Loviisa nuclear reactors has become too warm | 25 July 2018 | Finland’s Loviisa power plant, consisting of two reactors with a combined capacity of 1 gigawatt, had to reduce power by 170 megawatts on Wednesday as the sea water that is used to cool the reactors had become too warm, operator Fortum said. Because of the very warm temperatures the Nordic region is currently experiencing, the sea water that is collected to cool the Loviisa reactors is warmer and the water released is also warmer, at 32 degrees Celsius on Wednesday. Releasing hot water back to the sea after cooling the reactors could be a hazard and if it exceeds 34 degrees Fortum said the reactors must be shut down due to regulations.

DACA program should be fully restarted, federal judge rules | 03 Aug 2018 | A federal judge on Friday ordered a total restart of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, in a hit to the Trump administration. The administration last year announced its plan to phase out the program, which provides a level of amnesty to certain illegal immigrants, many of whom came to the U.S. as children. The order is not set to kick in right away, according to Politico, which notes that the government has until Aug. 23 to file a motion to appeal the ruling by U.S. District Judge John Bates. However, the judge denied a motion by the government to revise its earlier decision in April -- which determined that the Department of Homeland Security's decision to rescind DACA was "unlawful," according to court documents.

Obstruction of justice bombshell will explode before midterms | 03 Aug 2018 | ...The odds are very high that special counsel Robert Mueller will offer a declarative public statement before the midterm elections, and very likely before Labor Day, that President Trump is guilty of obstruction of justice.
