Senate fails to override Trump veto on Saudi arms sale

Senate fails to override Trump veto on Saudi arms sale | 29 July 2019 | The Senate on Monday failed to override President Trump's vetoes of resolutions blocking his arms deal with Saudi Arabia, marking the latest setback for critics of Riyadh. Senators voted 45-40, 45-39 and 46-41 on the override attempts, falling well short of the two-thirds majority needed to nix Trump's veto. GOP Sens. Susan Collins (Maine), Mike Lee (Utah), Jerry Moran (Kansas), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) and Todd Young (Ind.) voted with Democrats to override each of the three vetoes. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), who missed the first two votes, joined them to support overriding the third. The Senate's votes come after Trump vetoed the arms sale resolutions last week...

Expert, Hillary supporter warns Congress Google manipulated millions of votes for Dems in 2016, will 'go all out' in 2020 | 29 July 2019 | Dr. Robert Epstein, a liberal professor and self-avowed "strong public supporter of Hillary Clinton," testified recently before the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution and gave a startling assessment of voter manipulation in the 2016 election. Manipulation not by Russia, but by Google and, to a lesser extent, Facebook. "You testified before this committee that Google's manipulation of votes gave at least 2.6 million additional votes to Hillary Clinton in the year 2016, is that correct?" asked Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) at the hearing. "That's correct," replied Epstein, the former editor-in-chief of Psychology Today.

Warren targets corporate power with plan to overhaul trade policy --Warren argued U.S trade policy has ceded too much power to international corporations, squandering the country's ability to defend its manufacturers, farmers and laborers. | 29 July 2019 | Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) on Monday released a plan to use trade policy as a tool to create stronger safeguards for labor, the environment and regions of the country harmed by globalization. Warren's plan would overhaul the process by which the U.S. proposes, writes, finalizes and enforces trade deals while imposing strict standards for any nation seeking or currently in a free trade deal with the U.S. In a Medium post outlining the extensive trade proposal, Warren said her approach to trade is centered on using the United States' immense leverage to protect domestic industries and workers.

Fear behind fury: As DNI, Ratcliffe could expose FISA files that Russiagaters hope stay buried

Fear behind fury: As DNI, Ratcliffe could expose FISA files that Russiagaters hope stay buried | 29 July 2019 | The prospect of John Ratcliffe as the new US director of national intelligence has Democrats and the media alarmed far more so than usual, perhaps because as DNI he could expose things they would prefer to stay hidden. US President Donald Trump announced on Saturday that he would nominate Congressman Ratcliffe (R-Texas) to head the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), to replace Daniel Coats after he leaves on August 15. Ratcliffe has accepted Trump's nomination, and now faces the Senate confirmation process...Few remembered that the Texas congressman was one of the two Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee who actually saw the classified FISA documents that were used to get a warrant for spying on the Trump campaign. He did so as part of the House Intelligence Committee probe into the entire unsavory affair, back in late 2017, which resulted in the 'Nunes Memo' in February 2018.

Border Patrol agents sickened by toxic raw sewage flowing in from Mexico

Border Patrol agents sickened by toxic raw sewage flowing in from Mexico | 28 July 2019 | (Imperial Beach, CA) Raw sewage teeming with toxic chemicals dumped in Mexico's northern border city of Tijuana has been flowing for decades into the United States while local, state, and federal authorities in both countries have failed to prevent it. Now, those on the front lines of this crisis are saying enough is enough. Unrestrained run-offs of ugly green and brown liquids have caused both figurative and literal headaches for U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the Tijuana River Valley, a stretch of land south of San Diego from where the Tijuana River flows north from downtown Tijuana into California and then west to the Pacific Ocean.

Rusty shipping container full of nuclear refuse leaks at Westinghouse fuel plant

Rusty shipping container full of nuclear refuse leaks at Westinghouse fuel plant | 26 July 2019 | When nuclear plant workers looked in a huge, 40-foot long shipping container at an atomic fuel factory two months ago, they discovered a hole in the roof that allowed rainwater to leak inside, where barrels full of radioactive trash were stacked. Then, the workers discovered water had dripped onto some of the drums, causing uranium to trickle out and into the soil below the Westinghouse atomic fuel rod plant [Bluff Road plant] southeast of Columbia, according to state and federal regulatory agencies. The leaking roof is the latest problem to surface at the 50-year-old fuel factory, where recent troubles have focused the spotlight on nuclear safety and operating practices...The problem was discovered May 31, according to DHEC.

Troubled nuclear fuel plant in S. Carolina kept radioactive trash in leaky and rusty container

Troubled nuclear fuel plant in S. Carolina kept radioactive trash in leaky and rusty container | 27 July 2019 | A rusty shipping container full of uranium-tainted trash was found to be seeping contaminated sludge into the soil at Westinghouse fuel rod factory in S. Carolina, adding another radiation spike to the facility's list of troubles. Uranium levels in the ground at one spot underneath the container are nearly double the 11ppm safety standard, the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) reported on Friday, blaming the facility's egregious waste storage protocol for the contamination. Rain entered through a hole in the 40-foot container's roof, dousing the barrels full of radioactive trash stashed within, and the uranium-tainted water eventually trickled into the soil.

Trump considering labeling antifa a terrorist organization

Trump considering labeling antifa a terrorist organization | 27 July 2019 | President Trump declared Saturday he is considering labeling the militant anti-fascist movement antifa a terrorist organization. "Consideration is being given to declaring ANTIFA, the gutless Radical Left Wack Jobs who go around hitting (only non-fighters) people over the heads with baseball bats, a major Organization of Terror (along with MS-13 & others)," Trump tweeted Saturday. "Would make it easier for police to do their job!" Trump's announcement comes just days after GOP Sens. Bill Cassidy (La.) and Ted Cruz (Texas) introduced a nonbinding resolution that would label antifa activists as "domestic terrorists."

Supreme Court paves way for Trump administration to use military funds for border wall | 26 July 2019 | The Supreme Court sided with the Trump administration on Friday in lifting a freeze backed by a lower court that had halted plans to use $2.5 billion in Pentagon funds for border wall construction. The decision, which split the bench along ideological lines, allows the administration to move ahead with plans to use military funds to replace existing fencing in California, Arizona and New Mexico. The conservative justices on the court ruled in favor of the administration.

Trump announces 'landmark agreement' with Guatemala to restrict asylum claims | 26 July 2019 | President Trump on Friday announced a so-called "safe third country" deal with Guatemala to restrict asylum claims to the United States from Central America, calling it a "landmark agreement" and arguing it "will put the coyotes and smugglers out of business." "We've long been working with Guatemala and now we can do it the right way," Trump told reporters in the Oval Office, with Guatemalan interior minister Enrique Degenhart at his side...The agreement would require migrants, including Salvadorans and Hondurans, who cross into Guatemala on their way to the U.S. to apply for protections in Guatemala instead of at the U.S. border.

Judge dismisses Covington student's defamation suit against Washington Post

Judge dismisses Covington student's defamation suit against Washington Post | 26 July 2019 | A federal judge in Kentucky Friday threw out a defamation lawsuit filed against The Washington Post by Covington Catholic High School student Nicholas Sandmann and his family over the paper's reporting of an incident between the young man and a Native American man this past January in Washington. The lawsuit, which was filed in February, sought $250 million in damages and accused the Post of practicing "a modern-day form of McCarthyism" by targeting Sandmann and "using its vast financial resources to enter the bully pulpit by publishing a series of false and defamatory print and online articles...to smear a young boy who was in its view an acceptable casualty in their war against the president."

DOJ looking at why 'exculpatory' material was not presented in applications for surveillance warrants - sources

DOJ looking at why 'exculpatory' material was not presented in applications for surveillance warrants - sources | 26 July 2019 | The Justice Department's internal review of the Russia investigation is zeroing in on transcripts of recordings made by at least one government source who met with former Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos overseas in 2016, specifically looking at why certain "exculpatory" material from them was not presented in subsequent applications for surveillance warrants, according to two sources familiar with the review. The sources also said the review is taking a closer look at the actual start date of the original FBI investigation into potential collusion between members of the Trump campaign and the Russians, as some allege the probe began earlier than thought. Both components are considered key in the review currently being led by Attorney General Bill Barr and U.S. Attorney from Connecticut John Durham -- an effort sure to draw more attention in the coming weeks and months now that Robert Mueller's testimony is in the rearview.

Barr directs federal government to reinstate death penalty, schedule the execution of 5 death row inmates | 25 July 2019 | The federal government has ordered the death penalty to be reinstated for the first time in nearly two decades, as Attorney General William Barr directed the Bureau of Prisons to schedule the execution of five inmates after adopting an updated execution protocol. After 16 years without an execution, Barr has directed the head of the Bureau of Prisons to execute "five death-row inmates convicted of murdering, and in some cases torturing and raping, the most vulnerable in our society -- children and the elderly" in December and January, according to a statement from the Department of Justice.

Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii), a 2020 presidential contender, is suing Google over claims that the tech behemoth [Deep State terrorists] violated her right to "free speech." In a complaint filed Thursday with the central California federal court, Gabbard alleged Google censored her presidential campaign when it suspended their advertising account for several hours last month. Gabbard's lawsuit marks the first time a presidential contender has sued a large technology company over similar claims. The Hawaii Democrat's principal campaign committee, Tulsi Now, Inc., is suing Google for violating her First Amendment rights along with a litany of violations under California law. [Go Tulsi, go!]

Robert Mueller deflected lawmakers' questions 198 times during his testimony on the Russia probe --Fed up Ohio Republican Rep. Jim Jordan said, 'A lot of things you can't get into' after Mueller gave six 'I can't get into that' responses --Mueller said his investigation did not exonerate Trump of wrongdoing and he could still be charged when he leaves office | 24 July 2019 | Despite the high stakes and anticipation ahead of Robert Mueller's testimony on Wednesday, he gave a flat, lackluster performance before lawmakers and dodged probe questions nearly 200 times. Mueller took to the stand to provide insight into his two-year investigation into [alleged] Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, but refused to provide any additional details beyond the 448-page report he published in April...The former Special Counsel asked lawmakers to repeat their questions 30 times, asked lawmakers to refer to his report 34 times, and excused himself from answering questions saying they were outside of his 'purview' 10 times, according to Politico. He also dodged questions saying he 'can't' or 'won't' get into the substance of the inquiry a total of 99 times during his testimony. In total he deflected answering questions a whopping 198 times, according to an NBC tally.

Puerto Rico governor resigns after weeks of mass protests | 25 July 2019 | Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rosselló on Wednesday said he would resign after almost two weeks of protests calling for him to step down over a scandal involving offensive chat messages and government corruption that rocked the bankrupt [despite getting $92B in aid] island. Rosselló said in a televised speech he would stay in his position until Aug. 2 when Puerto Rico Secretary of Justice Wanda Vazquez would take over as governor. The first-term governor announced his resignation three days after he failed on Sunday to soothe critics' concerns by vowing not to seek re-election next year and giving up the leadership of his political party.

DOJ won't charge William Barr, Wilbur Ross after contempt vote

DOJ won't charge William Barr, Wilbur Ross after contempt vote | 24 July 2019 | The Justice Department will not bring criminal charges against Attorney General William Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross after the Democrat-led House voted last week to hold them in contempt. In a letter to Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday, Deputy Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen said the Cabinet officials' defiance of congressional subpoenas seeking information about the 2020 census "did not constitute a crime." Lawmakers never expected the Justice Department to prosecute its own leader and another cabinet official, but Rosen's letter represented the department’s formal response to a House vote that, in effect, referred Barr and Ross for criminal prosecution.

Federal judge blocks Trump restrictions on asylum at U.S.-Mexico border

Federal judge blocks Trump restrictions on asylum at U.S.-Mexico border | 24 July 2019 | A federal judge Wednesday blocked the Trump administration from enforcing a new rule that bars asylum for the vast majority of migrants trying to enter the U.S. at the southern border. U.S. District Judge Jon S. Tigar, an Obama appointee, issued a nationwide preliminary injunction against the 10-day-old rule that made migrants ineligible for asylum if they passed through another country en route to the U.S. and failed to apply for protection in that country. Most asylum seekers come from Central America.

However, Ebrard said he told Pompeo in Mexico City on Sunday that Mexico's view was that the proposal was unnecessary, after it helped reduce apprehensions at the U.S. southern border by a about a third last month.

New Pentagon chief attacks water contamination linked to cancers on his first day

New Pentagon chief attacks water contamination linked to cancers on his first day | 24 July 2019 | The Pentagon is launching a task force to look at the potential impact and dangers that chemical compounds used in military firefighting foam have had on military bases and the families who live there, Defense Secretary Mark Esper announced on his first day in office. Per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances, known as PFAS, are compounds found in everyday plastics and household products, but are concentrated in firefighting foam which the military has used for decades. That foam has seeped into the groundwater and well water surrounding military bases and has been found in drinking water sources. Last year the Pentagon published a list of hundreds of contaminated private and public water sources on military bases and in the communities surrounding those installations.

Officials said notices won't stop there and will continue to be rolled out across the 50 states and Puerto Rico.
