          Out Mayor Pete Buttigieg Gets Some Traction Following CNN Town Hall      Cache   Translate Page      

Openly gay Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana, appears to be building some momentum in his bid to become the Democratic candidate for president in 2020.

This past weekend, Buttigieg took part in a CNN town hall at the South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas.

Also taking solo turns on the stage were Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii and former Rep. John Delaney of Maryland.

But by many accounts, it was Mayor Pete who found the most traction.

While he isn't out-polling former Vice President Joe Biden or Sen. Bernie Sanders, Buttigieg showed he knew how to make the most of an opportunity.

Veteran political expert and chief strategist for the Obama campaigns, David Axelrod, gave Buttigieg high marks and predicted an uptick in his standing among the other candidates.

 

 

During his hour onstage, the 37-year-old displayed impressive poise and composure while throwing some shade on the Trump/Pence administration, including his now infamous “cheerleader for the porn star presidency” description of Vice President Mike Pence.

The former Navy intelligence officer and Afghanistan war veteran also took aim at Donald Trump’s National Security Advisor, John Bolton, who has defended the invasion of Iraq for years.

Referencing Bolton’s suggestion that the U.S. use military force in the current conflict in Venezuela, Buttigieg replied, “I don’t understand how somebody leading us into the Iraq War is allowed near that situation.”

He also addressed some issues specific to the LGBTQ community.

The two-term mayor reaffirmed his support for the Equality Act, which would bring uniform civil rights protections to LGBTQs across the nation by adding sexual orientation and gender identity to existing civil righs laws.

He also called for an end to the “war on trans Americans.”

“For a transgender teen to get the signal from the White House that the highest officials in the land can’t tell the difference between her and a predator and make it harder for her to go to the bathroom shows you just how out of whack the climate is in our country right now. We've got to end the war on trans Americans and we need a federal Equality Act that would say that you cannot be fired just because of who you are or just because you love.”

 

There was also a fairly innocuous but human moment that occurred when CNN’s Jake Tapper tried to clarify how to pronounce the mayor’s last name.

Noting that Buttigieg’s husband has indicated a slightly different pronunciation (“I don’t want to get in the middle of a marital squabble, but…”), Tapper asked the mayor for the definitive answer.

Buttigieg said his name quickly (which sounded like ‘Booda-judge’) but added that either option worked, and at home, he just goes by "Mayor Pete."

The day when reporters blithely ask a presidential candidate about daily interactions with his husband has come.

 

Clearly sensing the appearance had gone well, Buttigieg was the only participant in the town hall to make a direct appeal from the stage for donations to his campaign.

According to CNN, Buttigieg had the single biggest fundraising day of his 2020 campaign after his appearance raising more than $600,000 from over 22,200 donations in the 24 hours after the event televised on CNN.

Dem congressman John Yarmuth of Kentucky, who is the one and only Democrat from Kentucky in Congress, breaks with Pelosi on Impeachment. The lib congressman tells CNN that it's only a matter of time until articles of impeachment are brought against Donald Trump.

I fully understand where speaker Pelosi is coming from. She makes valid points," Yarmuth said on CNN's "New Day."
"In my opinion if impeachment is to mean anything, and it’s in the Constitution for a reason, it's because when we see evidence of impeachable offenses we need to start the process to remove the president from office,"

"I don't think right now there’s any way that we could 218 votes on the floor of the House for an impeachment resolution, but I think that’s not a matter of whether it’s a matter of when"

          Man tweets that his dad's new donut shop has no customers, response is overwhelmimg      Cache   Translate Page      

"My dad is sad cause no one is coming to his new donut shop 😭," tweeted the son of the proprietor of Billy's Donuts in Missouri City, Texas. The brilliant marketing move resulted in a sell-out of donuts and kolaches.

From Houstonia:

By Sunday afternoon his tweet was retweeted more than 150,000 times. By Monday morning? More than 260,000 times. To put that in perspective, the 30th most retweeted tweet in Twitter history (by South Korean boy band BTS) has about 630,000 retweets.

...

On Monday morning, Billy was being interviewed by other local news stations and working on a potential CNN spot, while representatives from Twitter were on hand greeting customers. Yes, Twitter. They bought out the store for the morning, meaning everyone’s order was on them. (Representatives wouldn’t comment on the record about their presence at the shop.) And while Billy played gracious host, Satharith kept busy in the back, and an aunt worked the cash register. It all seemed surreal that within 48 hours, this family-owned Cambodian donut shop in Missouri City had become something of an epicenter of social media

Stormy Daniels’ new attorney, Clark Brewster, is known for defending Oklahoma cops in civil rights lawsuits, and representing a wealthy volunteer deputy whose fatal shooting of an unarmed black suspect put the national spotlight on the Tulsa sheriff’s office.

On April 2, 2015, 73-year-old Bob Bates joined Tulsa County deputies on a gun-buy sting operation. While officers handcuffed Eric Harris, 44, Bates fired his gun and could be heard on body camera footage saying, “Oh! I shot him! I’m sorry!” The volunteer deputy said he meant to fire his taser when he aimed at Harris.

Days later, when Bates was charged with second-degree manslaughter, Brewster went on CNN to justify the incident, which was one of several police-involved shootings that gained media attention amid Black Lives Matter protests.

          Bernie Sanders, Where Are Your Taxes?      Cache   Translate Page      
During the 2016 election, Bernie Sanders refused to release his tax returns. Not only did he refuse to release his tax returns in full, but he lied about having released them.

Now he's running for president again, and he still hasn't released his tax returns, using the same old excuse that his wife does their taxes, they've been very busy with other things, but they'll definitely totally for sure release them very soon, he promises.

Yesterday on a call with reporters, Sanders' campaign manager Faiz Shakir said that Sanders will "soon#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000" release his tax returns: "We're working on it. Stay tuned."

"Soon" was the same answer Sanders gave two weeks ago to CNN when he was asked when he'll release his tax returns: "Soon. We have to just do a few more little things, to check them out. They're ready."

At this point, Sanders' refusal to release his tax returns is not just ridiculous; it's suspicious. What could possibly be taking so long?

And I will readily admit that I am increasingly skeptical of Sanders' motives in concealing his taxes. The longer he takes, the more it seems like there's something in those taxes that he doesn't want the public to see.

He could easily shut me the fuck up by releasing them.

In the meantime, he and his supporters can't be too surprised if people assume that there's something problematic in there that needs "fixing" or some carefully prepared (and focus-group tested) explanations, because it's tough to understand what could be causing such a dramatic hold-up.

I guess we'll find out "soon."

          Cardinal Pell sentenced to 6 years in prison for child sex abuse      Cache   Translate Page      

Cardinal George Pell, the most senior Vatican official to be convicted of sex abuse to date, has been sentenced to six years in prison for the "callous" assault of two choirboys in the late 1990s.

A former senior adviser to Pope Francis, Pell showed no reaction when Chief Judge Peter Kidd handed down his sentence in a hearing broadcast live worldwide on Wednesday from Victoria's County Court in central Melbourne.

Pell, 77, was found guilty of one count of sexual penetration of a child and four counts of committing an indecent act with a child last December after a secret five-week trial.

Reporting of the trial and verdict was suppressed by the court to avoid prejudicing a second trial, which crown prosecutors abandoned in February after the judge ruled some prosecution evidence couldn't be submitted.

On Wednesday, Judge Kidd said Pell's attack on the victims was "breathtakingly arrogant" adding that the cardinal had assaulted the boys with "callous indifference to the victims' distress."

But the judge said Pell was "not to be made a scapegoat for any failings or perceived failings of the Catholic Church."

Outside the court, survivors of Catholic sex abuse who had attended the hearing were divided on the sentence. Some felt it was too light, while others were happy to see justice being done. "I would have been happy with one month, one week," one said.

In a statement after the sentencing, the surviving victim said it was hard for him "to take comfort in this outcome."

"There is no rest for me," he said through his lawyer, Vivian Waller. "I'm doing my best to hold myself and my family together."

Until last month Pell held the role of Vatican treasurer, considered by many to be the third most senior position within the Roman Catholic church.

Pell's legal team has previously announced it will appeal his conviction on three grounds, including that the jury's verdict on all five charges was unreasonable, based on the evidence submitted. The Court of Appeal is due to hear submissions in early June.

The sentencing

Pell has spent the past two weeks in custody and was brought into the court from the Melbourne Assessment Prison (MAP) via an internal entrance, avoiding rows of cameras set up outside the court in central Melbourne.

More than 150 people crammed into the courtroom, which had been fitted with extra seats to cope with the demand from those who wanted to be there in person to hear how he'd be punished.

Pell sat in the back of the courtroom, surrounded by security officers but uncuffed, as Judge Kidd delivered a detailed explanation of the crimes the cardinal had committed and the reasons for the sentence.

After mass one Sunday in the late 1990s, Judge Kidd recounted, Pell caught two choirboys drinking communion wine in the priest's sacristy and one by one forced them to engage in sex acts, despite their sobs and pleas for him to let them go.

The first choirboy told how he was forced to perform oral sex on the cardinal, who at the time was Archbishop of Melbourne and a revered figure within the Catholic Church.

The boy didn't tell anyone what had happened for years, before finally approached Victoria Police in 2015, almost 20 years after the crime. His statement led to an investigation and a number of historical sex abuse charges being filed against the then-Vatican treasurer.

After his conviction, the Vatican launched its own investigation into Pell, which could lead to the cardinal losing his clerical status or being "defrocked," a severe punishment imposed by the Pope and not subject to appeal.

The victims

In his ruling, Judge Kidd was careful not to name the two victims, one of whom gave taped evidence against Pell on a video that was seen only by the jury during the trial. Under Australian law it's illegal to identify sex abuse victims or reveal information that could expose who they are.

The first victim has declined to comment publicly but said in a statement released by his lawyer after the ruling that since the attack he had experienced "shame, loneliness (and) depression."

He asked that he be left alone and given time to cope with the ongoing criminal process. "The process has been stressful and is not over yet," he said.

The second victim died of a heroin overdose a few years ago.

The deceased victim's father told CNN that his son had been an outgoing child who played sport and liked singing, a talent that earned him a scholarship to the prestigious boys' school and ultimately an invitation to sing in St. Patrick's Cathedral where the attack took place.

Around one year after the assault, he said his son was kicked out of the choir, lost his scholarship and started injecting heroin.

"He was trying to mask something that had happened to him. He was trying to cover up something that had happened to him, so heinous and so horrible," said his father, who is considering filing a civil case against the church.

Pell's supporters

Pell's defense team had submitted 10 references that attested to Pell's good character. They included one from former Prime Minister John Howard who wrote that Pell, his friend for approximately 30 years, was a person of "high intelligence and exemplary character."

Howard said he was aware of Pell's conviction and pending appeal but that "none of these matters alter my opinion of the Cardinal."

Several of Pell's other high-profile friends in Australia have leaped to his defense, questioning the jury's verdict and predicting the cardinal would be exonerated on appeal.

The depiction of Pell as a man wronged has infuriated survivors of church sex abuse who say that casting victims as liars and priests as beyond reproach perpetuates a culture that allowed abuse to thrive within the Catholic Church for decades.

Statistics released in 2017 by Australia's Royal Commission into Responses to Institutional Child Sex Abuse stated that 7% of all Catholic priests in the country had abused children over the past six decades.

Judge Kidd addressed the current climate of anger with the Catholic Church at Pell's February hearing when he said, "The Catholic Church is not on trial and I'm not imposing a sentence on the Catholic Church. I'm imposing a sentence on Cardinal Pell for what he did."

As Judge Kidd handed down his sentence Wednesday, no sounds could be heard in the court.

The judge sent him to jail with the words: "Can Cardinal Pell be taken away please?"


          Favorite TV moms embroiled in alleged college admissions scandal      Cache   Translate Page      

Two top actresses who rose to fame playing popular TV moms now find themselves at the center of an alleged college admissions scam that reads like a Hollywood plot.

Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin are among 50 individuals facing federal charges in what investigators dubbed "Operation Varsity Blues" -- a scheme in which wealthy parents allegedly cheated to help their children gain admittance to prestigious schools.

Aunt Becky

Loughlin is best known for playing the beloved Rebecca Katsopolis (a.k.a. Aunt Becky) on the family-friendly sitcom, "Full House," which ran on ABC from 1987 to 1995. Loughlin reprised the role in 2016 on the Netflix spinoff, "Fuller House." The series was recently renewed for a fifth and final season. She also stars on Hallmark's "Garage Sale Mystery" and "When Calls the Heart."

Mossimo Giannulli, Loughlin's husband of 20 years and the founder of American clothing company Mossimo, is also named in the indictment. The two are charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud. Giannulli allegedly paid bribes up to $500,000 in exchange for their two daughters to be designated as recruits to the USC crew team, though they did not participate in crew, according to court filings obtained by CNN.

Related: Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin among dozens charged in alleged college cheating scam

Giannulli and Loughlin were recorded on calls with a cooperating witness stating that if they were ever caught they would say they made a donation to the foundation, the indictment stated.

Giannulli appeared in federal court in Los Angeles Tuesday afternoon, where the government and defense attorneys agreed to a $1 million secured bond. Similar conditions were requested for Loughlin, who was not present in court.

CNN has reached out to representatives for the couple.

'Desperate Housewives'

Huffman, a best actress Oscar-nominee for the 2005 film "Transamerica," was arrested in Los Angeles Tuesday on charges of felony conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud. She also appeared in federal court Tuesday, where the judge imposed a $250,000 bond.

Huffman is accused of paying $15,000 to an organization that allegedly facilitated additional time and corrected answers on their daughter's SAT exam. Huffman, like Loughlin, was recorded on a phone call with a cooperating witness, according to the indictment. Huffman's husband, actor William H. Macy, was not indicted.

Huffman became a household name playing mom-of-four Lynette Scavo on the series "Desperate Housewives," which ran from 2004 to 2012. She also starred on the ABC drama "American Crime."

Between the two shows she has been nominated for five Emmys, winning for "Housewives" in 2005.

Huffman's upcoming projects include the web series, "When They See Us," from director Ava DuVernay, and the Netflix film, "Otherhood," set for release next month. Macy -- who she married in 1997 -- continues to star in the Showtime series "Shameless."

In a recent interview with Parade magazine, Macy talked about the college admissions process for his eldest daughter.

"We're right now in the thick of college application time, which is so stressful," Macy is quoted saying. "I am voting that once she gets accepted, she maybe takes a year off. God doesn't let you be 18 twice."

Macy declined to comment as he passed reporters outside court Tuesday.

CNN has contacted a representatives for Huffman.

According to NBC's chief Pentagon correspondent, former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said that his "interest is to hit Saddam Hussein" just hours after the attacks on September 11, 2001, "even though all indications pointed at al-Qaida as the guilty party," a Rhode Island newspaper reports.
At the annual Business Expo at the Rhode Island Convention Center Tuesday, NBC's Jim Miklaszewski "advanced a theme garnering attention since former CIA director George J. Tenet made his public revelations last week," writes Tom Mooney for the Providence Journal.
"Some things are right on the mark, when he says the Bush administration appeared predisposed to attack Iraq," Miklaszewski says of Tenet's book At the Center of the Storm.”


Quote from Dick Cheney from RightWeb  - “During the lead up to the invasion of Iraq, for example, he said that there was “no doubt” that the Saddam Hussein regime had “weapons of mass destruction” and predicted that Iraqis would greet U.S. troops as “liberators.” In 2005, Cheney insisted that the Iraqi insurgency was in its final stages. Faced with criticism for his mistaken views, Cheney has been unrepentant, arguing in July 2014: “I look back on it now, [the invasion of Iraq] was absolutely the right thing to do.”[1]

What did the Vice-President do for Halliburton?
By Jane Mayer
The list of cronies and how they used war for their own benefit is frightening.  The asserted, self-serving meme that America is, according to daughter, Elizabeth Cheney, “We know that America is the exceptional nation, and that there is no substitute for American leadership around the world.”[4]  is a chilling reminder of the  constructed reality these people have built, which allows them to ignore the swimming pools of blood draining from their victims.

The interview was translated into English by the BBC World Monitoring Service and made public on September 29, 2001. 

During the interview ben Laden said, “I have already said that I am not involved in the 11 September attacks in the United States. As a Muslim, I try my best to avoid telling a lie. I had no knowledge of these attacks, nor do I consider the killing of innocent women, children, and other humans as an appreciable act. Islam strictly forbids causing harm to innocent women, children, and other people.  From: Global Research

Such a practice is forbidden ever in the course of a battle.

November 8, 2002 - The U.N. Security Council passes Resolution 1441. CNN

November 9, 2002 – An ordinary American becomes aware of events which point to a conspiracy for invasion.  “Articles appeared from NBCNewsthrough Associated Press, in the Daily Mail, and Washington Post,  reporting offers from Saddam Hussein to leave Iraq before the invasion began either weeks before the date of the invasion or within days of the beginning of hostilities. This is followed by a demand issued by George Bush that Saddam and his sons leave within 48 hours before the scheduled invasion. A letter to this effect was issued from the White House and remains online today.
If Saddam was willing to leave and be paid to do so we should have let him or just left him alone.  One Billion dollars is much less than we are in the hole for today. 
War is expensive in every way imaginable. Paying Saddam to leave struck me as the better choice. Then no war would be necessary and we could return to focusing on our own country and the many problems confronting us. Then,  I trusted the good judgement of those in government to see this. 
Saddam Hussein would leave, being paid as he exited. But I also expected an announcement which never came. This was an investigation of Bill and Hillary Clinton for entering into a dialog with Saddam the previous November and telling him no invasion was seriously planned. It was clear we were getting ready for war – why would the Clintons lie?
I saw the correspondence between Saddam and the Clintons only partially, but these included one or two of the ongoing emails between traveling from Sidney Blumenthal, to his son Max, and then to Uday Hussein. I was told by the person who had hacked Blumenthal's computer the previous summer that Saddam was negotiating through this backdoor so he could leave Iraq and be paid for doing so. The hacker was my daughter.  I found out when she forwarded me a draft chapter of the book Blumenthal was then writing.  I advised her to stop - but she felt justified because Blumenthal had done the same to her earlier.  To told her to stop sending me his correspondence and the draft chapters of Sidney's book, "Clinton's War."
As for Saddam, leaving sounded like his best option.  But why would the Clintons tell him no invasion was imminent? You could tell it was going to happen.
As soon as I had realized what was happening, that shocking day in November, 2002, I informed someone well known to me at the CIA expecting any necessary action would be taken. The Clintons with Blumenthal, I believed, were acting without the knowledge of the White House.
Now, it appeared I had been very mistaken in trusting anyone within the U.S. Government.
It now appears this unexpected breech in a confidential back door had revealed information already well known to the Bush Administration. The assurances delivered by the Clinton via the Blumenthals, father and son, were orchestrated to lull Saddam into believing a deal had been cut, apparently. The only problem was the existence of a few people who had blundered into the scene playing out. That would be myself, the hacker-daughter, and two other people we had trusted with the information.
Now, we know the Bushes and Clintons were friendly after the end of the Clinton Administration. Hillary was receiving generous donations from Bush's 'Associates,'   If Saddam thought they had the power to negotiate he probably had reasons for believing this was authorized.
The stories about Saddam leaving and being paid were cover to stall any statement by Saddam, inconvenient to the Bush Administration and overwhelm any possible action on his part before the invasion began.
This is why these four additional names are included.  If they helped Bush they are also guilty.”

          CNN Iowa poll analysis: Biden strong, Harris gains ground, red flags for Gillibrand and Sanders.      Cache   Translate Page      

It’s been nigh unto four months since the last election ended...so we haven’t had any polls to analyze and I think I was going into withdrawal, ha. But owing to the perpetual elections of American politics, THE POLLS ARE BACK, BABY. The most recent release of the CNN/Des Moines Register/Mediacom Iowa poll is out. 

To be sure, it’s waaaaaaaay too early to look at vote share totals, so I’ll largely ignore those. But we now have two in this polling series...what can we divine from the data?

Here are my takeaways.

1. Biden is a force to reckon with...but polls are kinda useless until we know if he’s in.

VP Biden is the strongest candidate in the poll hands-down, with an astronomical favorability amongst Iowa Dems (Net fav +66!) If he runs, his name recognition and favorables would offer a huge head start. The one possible small warning sign for him is that 31% of respondents said “his time has passed and he shouldn’t be in the race.” But 64% said he should be in owing to experience. He should be okay as long as this metric doesn’t drop considerably for him. 

Biden’s results in this poll indicate that the race will be vastly different whether he’s in or out. I don’t think we can predict what the poll would look like if he wasn’t included...he’s such a force in the results that a poll taken if he doesn’t run would be dramatically different from this one. For that matter, I’m not sure that his status as unannounced isn’t affecting this poll in one direction or another. 

So until he decides, the shape of this race is pretty undetermined. Iowans seem to think he’s in.

2. Harris’ favorables stand out

Sen. Harris improved both her favorable and unfavorable rating over the December version of this poll. She managed to increase her favorable to 58% from 49%, while decreasing unfavorable from 10% to 9%. She’s also reduced “not sure” from 41 to 33, so these seem like indicators that the campaign is doing their job on the ground in Iowa.

Julián Castro was the only other candidate to improve both metrics, moving from 27/10 to 33/8...but 58% of respondents are still unsure about him, so he has work to do in the state. 

Klobuchar (from 38/8 to 43/15) and Booker (from 49/12 to 53/14) both saw increases to both favorable and unfavorable. Klobuchar’s spike in unfavorable responses seems like a concern, particularly in this state, which I think she needs to do well in.  

Gillibrand and Sanders both lost ground, with net favorable dropping 6 points for either. I’d call Gillibrand’s performance a red flag for her campaign — she went from 35/10 to 35/16. A six point jump in unfavorable while gaining no ground seems notable. 

As it stands, the top five performers in net favorable in this poll are:

1. Biden: +66 (again, wow)

2. Harris: +49

3. Sanders: +46

4. Warren: +43

5. Beto: +40 

3. Warning signs for Sanders in the data

I think that Iowa is more crucial for Sanders, Warren and Klobuchar than some of the other contenders, under the theory that this is where they have potential to offset potential losses elsewhere in the initial primaries. South Carolina and Nevada’s more diverse electorates could easily drive the narrative coming out of the first month of voting as we head into Super Tuesday, where the voters look a lot more like SC and NV than IA. 

Sanders remains strong in the polling, but I do see a couple of warning signs. First, his net favorability dropped by six points. That seems significant, particularly since the changes don’t represent voters moving from unsure...the fluctuation shows voters changing their minds and migrating less favorable. 

A second warning sign is that 43% of respondents state that Sanders’ “Time as a candidate has passed, and he should not be in the race.” That’s 12 points higher than the response to that question for Biden. I’d call this a “yellow flag”, because I suspect these respondents aren’t from his voting bloc, and he can still perform well in a large field even with this response. 

But the result that feels like a definitive red flag is a question over whether the candidates are too liberal, about right or too conservative. Sanders scores off the charts from the others in too liberal responses, at 44%. Warren is next highest at 23%, Harris is third at 12%. This is a 20 point swing in a negative direction for Sanders over this poll in 2016, and at a +4 net “about right” ideology metric, he is by far the lowest performer on this question. What draws my attention most is that Warren is +31 net about right. Why is that? Why does she perform so much better than Sanders? I’m not sure, which is why I think this question is a red flag for Sanders. 

4. Healthcare is king, but…

When asked what Dem voters want to hear the candidates speak about, healthcare remains the top priority, with 81% of respondents saying they want candidates to speak about the issue “a lot.” 

But what's super interesting is that climate change has risen in the ranks for these sort of issue questions, and 80% of respondents want to hear the candidate speak about this issue a lot. I did my wonk due diligence and pulled up ten Iowa polls from before the 2016 caucus, and I could not find this question asked in similar fashion for comparison. The closes I could find is a CNN poll asking whether issues were “very important,” and health care was the top response...but climate change wasn’t even on the list. 

This response, plus a 91% positive response toward the Green New Deal, are signs that climate change may play a larger role in this election than any previous cycle. Which seems intuitive, but the data is bearing this out. 

5. The race is wide open, and Iowa is boring.

The data indicate that, as we might expect, there’s no clear favorite. Too many moving parts and too many unknowns. As of today, the polling makes it look like Iowa would spread delegates around so that no one would emerge with too much of a lead. So I suspect that we will talk and talk about Iowa, then the second it’s over we will be looking at a 5 delegate advantage for someone or other, and all forget about Iowa for another four years. 

What the data doesn’t indicate is that Iowa is boring — that part is just my opinion. But as a liberal I feel entitled to gripe. They are still using a caucus, which is a stupid system, and it’s still going to have its stupid mechanisms like the 2016 coin toss debacle. It’s still a 91% white state with an utter lack of economic diversity. And they still use their self-importance, which is only a result from calendar placement, to make us all watch the candidates and journalists curry favor by shoving the filth that Iowans call food into their faces. I swear to god, every four years we get to the god damned Iowa State Fair and I always vomit at least once at the greasy slop that is passed off as something humans should actually consume. Iowa should be moved to June just so that we don’t have to watch that horror show. 

(I’m being silly, obviously, but I’m still haunted by a segment in which Chuck Todd saw how much fried food he could buy with $50 in a half hour, and sampled it all. That did make me physically ill, lol.)

There are 601 days until we get to hold a revolution at the ballot box and tell the GOP what we think of them.

          हिजाब गर्ल ज़ारा ‘आइस प्रिंसेस’ के नाम से दुनिया भर में है मशहूर      Cache   Translate Page      
नई दिल्ली। संयुक्त अरब अमीरात (UAE) की 22 वर्षीय ज़ारा लारी जिन्हें दुनिया भर में ‘आइस प्रिंसेस’ के नाम से जाना जाता है। ज़ारा खाड़ी देशों की पहले महिला स्केटर है जिन्होंनेअंतर्राष्ट्रीय स्केटिंग प्रतियोगिताओं में जीत हासिल की है. उनकी सबसे बड़ी ख़ास बात ये है कि वे हिजाब पहन कर स्केटिंग करती है.

CNN से बातचीत में उन्होंने हिजाब को लेकर कहा कि उनके साथ हिजाब को जोड़ना एक मामूली बात है. क्योंकि दुनिया भर में कई मशहूर हस्तियां है जिनकी पोशाक का एक अहम हिस्सा हिजाब है.

हालांकि स्केटिंग मेंहि जाब पहनना असामान्य तौर पर देखा जा सकता है. उन्होंने बताया कि 10 साल पहले अमीरात में आबू धाबी के अपने घर से स्केटिंग करना शुरू किया था. उन्होंने डिज्नी फिल्म की ‘आइस प्रिंसेस’ देखने के बाद स्केटिंग करने का फैसला लिया था.

उन्होंने बताया जिस समय वह एक छात्रा थी तब स्कूल जाने से पहले ट्रेन के लिए उन्हें 4.30 बजे जागना पड़ता था और फिर दोपहर में अभ्यास किया करती थी. उन्होंने अबू धाबी की जैद स्पोर्ट्स सिटी में स्थित एकमात्र रिंग में प्रशिक्षिण लिया है.

          Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is better-known by Americans than the highest-ranking House Republican and some of Trump's most important cabinet members      Cache   Translate Page      

New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

  • New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is better-known than most of the highest-ranking lawmakers and most powerful cabinet secretaries in Washington, according to a new INSIDER poll. 
  • After just over two months in office, Ocasio-Cortez is more than 15 times as well-known as the longest-serving congressional Republican, Rep. Don Young. 
  • Among top lawmakers in Washington polled by INSIDER, just three — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell — are more well-known than Ocasio-Cortez. 

New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is better-known than some of the highest-ranking lawmakers and most powerful cabinet secretaries in Washington, according to a new INSIDER poll conducted on SurveyMonkey audience this past weekend.

Nearly 53% of Americans said they're familiar with the 29-year-old democratic socialist — more than twice the number who are familiar with House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, the top-ranking House Republican. 

After just over two months in office, Ocasio-Cortez is also more than twice as well-known as Vermont Sen. Patrick Leahy, the longest-serving Democrat in Congress, and more than 15 times as well-known as the longest-serving Republican in Congress, Alaska Rep. Don Young. 

Meanwhile, the Bronx native is better known than four of the most powerful cabinet secretaries. 

About 47% of Americans are familiar with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, about 26% are aware of Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, about 10% are familiar with acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan, and just under 5% are familiar with Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar. Overall, those four individuals oversee some of the largest bureaucracies in the US government.

Of the people included on the survey, just three top lawmakers in Washington — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer  — are better known than Ocasio-Cortez.

Pelosi is best known — around three-quarters of Americans are familiar with her, while about 58% know who McConnell is and 56% are familiar with Schumer.

13% of Americans said they did not recognize any of the names on INSIDER's list.

Ocasio-Cortez became an overnight celebrity when she stunned the political world last June by beating veteran Rep. Joe Crowley in the Democratic primary. The millennial political newcomer continued to build her fame with her active social media presence. Her Twitter following has ballooned from 60,000 on the day of her June 26 primary to 3.5 million by early March.

A mural depicting the face of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is displayed on a wall in the Lower East Side neighborhood of Manhattan in February 2019.

The freshman lawmaker's name recognition is likely also a result of the outsize attention she's received from the media. In particular, Ocasio-Cortez has quickly caught up to Pelosi as one of the main subjects of articles from conservative media outlets, including Fox News and the Daily Caller. 

Other polling this year found similar results concerning Ocasio-Cortez's name recognition. 

An early February CNN poll found that nearly 60% of Americans had an opinion about Ocasio-Cortez — 27% viewed her positively while 32% viewed her negatively.

And a January Morning Consult/Politico survey found that Ocasio-Cortez was better known than several likely 2020 presidential candidates, including Sens. Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, and Amy Klobuchar, and former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke. The poll found that conservatives formed opinions about Ocasio-Cortez more quickly than Democrats and independents did. 

In order to get a sense of Ocasio-Cortez's relative popularity, INSIDER asked Americans whether they had heard of a handful of high-ranking politicians and cabinet members. The list included the House and Senate leaderships for both parties, the longest-serving member in each chamber, and four of President Donald Trump's cabinet members who oversee large parts of the federal bureaucracy.

For comparison, we also included Rep. Jim Jordan, an outspoken Republican who helps lead the ultra-conservative House Freedom Caucus and recently drew headlines during former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen's hearing. 15% of those surveyed said they were familiar with Jordan.

SurveyMonkey Audience polls from a national sample balanced by census data of age and gender. Respondents are incentivized to complete surveys through charitable contributions. Generally speaking, digital polling tends to skew toward people with access to the internet. SurveyMonkey Audience doesn't try to weight its sample based on race or income. Total 1,082 respondents collected March 10, 2019, a margin of error plus or minus 3.12 percentage points with a 95% confidence level.

NOW WATCH: The top 15 presidents, according to historians


          Dear Jewish-American Leftists: It’s Time For a Talk      Cache   Translate Page      

From one Jew to another. From one parent/grandparent to another. From one who utters “Never Again!” to another. From one witnessing the vile anti-Semitic floats in Belgian parades to another. From one in horror watching the U.K. descend into 100 monthly anti-Semitic incidents to another. And from one seeing, in disbelief, the rise of anti-Semitism in the U.S. to another. We may not agree on much else, but this outrage we have in common.

You are the resounding 72-74% majority of the 5.4 Million American Jewry who have backed the Democratic Party since the sun has risen in the East. We get it; you’re for minority rights because you will forever identify as a minority. You’re forever for JFK , even though his brand of liberalism is long gone and has actually morphed into modern conservatism. You’re forever for FDR, even though it was the Republican Ronald Reagan who delivered approximately 3,000,000 Soviet Jews from bondage of Anti-Semitic leftist oppression.

The Democratic Party of the 1950s was the party of the underdog, and you’re forever the underdog, in your mind, in your memory and by virtue of our tiny demographic. Your parents and grandparents have been married to the Democratic party since before you were born, and you can’t let go of what has been engrained in you with mother’s milk. Understandable.

Today is 2019, not the 1950s. And after the devastating failure of your Party to stand with you (as Jews) unequivocally against the rabid Nazi-era anti-Semitism of Democratic Congresswoman Omar, you stand in the final hour of a critical decision, depleted of all excuses for your political loyalty. And you know it.

We’re in the Situation Room of the 11th hour. Let’s connect all the dots together.

First, your history:

• At the UN, your favorite President Barack Obama, famously called for Israel to return to 1967 Borders. You said nothing and continued to exalt his virtue. 
• The same man orchestrated UN’s resolution #2334, de facto proclaiming most of Israel illegitimate in Jewish hands. You said nothing and continued to exalt his virtue. 
• On his way out of office, the same Democratic POTUS released a whopping $150 Billion to the mullahs of Iran who have a single clearly stated goal; washing Israel out to sea with their nukes. You said nothing and continued to sing the 44th praises. 
• You watched as Obama whispered to French President Sarkozy “…You are sick of him, but I have to work with him every day.”, mocking PM Benjamin Netenyahu of Israel. You said nothing and continued to applaud Obama. 
• You watched the spiraling souring of America-Israel relations under Obama’s leadership. You said nothing and continued the love affair with Obama. 
• You knew of Obama’s $350,000 interference in Israel’s national election to subvert the democratic process. You looked the other way and said nothing. 
• You never once heard the word “Jihad” leave Obama’s lips when describing Islamic terror attacks against Jews in France. You said nothing and continued to praise him in your liberal synagogues.

…Because Obama is your guy. Because he had the visible color of the underdog. Because the Democratic party is the perceived home of your ancestors.

Those ancestors are dead, but here is your record:

• President Donald Trump, by virtue of the American Embassy move, underscores Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel. You instantly end your supine silence and find your voice in loud opposition to the most logical, lawful, courageous and Israel-loving politic. With trembling knees, you proclaim “he’s angering the Arabs” in your posturing speeches on Shul Bimahs, in schools, social media and in endless editorials. When WW3 failed to occur, you retreat back to your silence, having sufficiently defamed the President. 
• President Trump reaffirms a record-setting annual budget of $4 Billion to Israel, including a $200M increase in 2019, for the next 10 years for a total of $40 Billion. What do you do? You bash the President in choir with CNN. 
• President Trump defunds Israel-denying UNRWA. You continue to bash the President.
• President Trump defunds murderous Mahmoud Abbas to the tune of $250 Million per year. You continue to bash the President. 
• You watch Trump’s appointee Nikki Haley staunchly defend Israel at the UN, time and time again. Speaking against UN’s anti-Israel biases & infinite resolutions of condemnation, like no one has ever before, Trump’s envoy to the UN stuns the world with her courage. Yet you continue to bash the President. 
• President Trump stands alone against feckless Europe in ending the disastrous Obama era of Nuclear Appeasement with Iran, undoing the damage done by the your favorite ex-President. Ignoring this courageous unpopular move and Iran’s devotion to the annihilation of the Jewish people as its number one cause, you continue to bash the President. 
• In every State of the Union and UN address, you hear President Trump exalt Israel, condemn the Holocaust, and explicitdly exclaim the non-negotiated American support for Israel under his administration. Backed not by his words, but by his deeds! ….You? You continue to bash the President. 
Holocaust Survivors and American religious Jewry unreservedly embrace the President with warm support and voter presence. Speaking at Trump’s commemorations of Jewish events & important dates, celebrating Hannukah with singing and candle lighting by Trump grandchildren and children, in full view to the world from the White House. First occurrences ever in history! And you? You continue to bash the President. 
• You know of Trump Family long-standing personal financial support for Israel, Fred Trump’s designation of NY buildings for subsidization of Post-Holocaust Jews, complete with a funded synagogue inside. But you continue to bash the President. 
• In August of 2015, Donald Trump's own private jet carried a critically ill 3-year-old Jewish boy from California to New York for medical treatment, when commercial airline refused to fly him. You? You continue to bash the President. 
• You’ve even watched the First Daughter, The First observantly Jewish Daughter of the Oval Office (another first in history!) pray at Jerusalem’s Wailing Wall, along with her father, the grandfather of this, de facto, First Jewish Family that every Friday night observes Shabbat. Amazingly, you continue to bash the President to the sound of the CNN drum. 
• You, the liberal Jews of America, continue to bash the man who has never once said, let alone done, anything remotely anti-Semitic. You go as far as partaking in discussions and events that compare Trump to Hitler and the KKK. You sign petitions and you echo the cherry-picked sound-bytes of MSNBC’s three-year smear campaign.

How you vote and what you do:

• You vote for the party of Louis Farrakhan, who only months ago called you “termites”! 
• You vote for the party whose elected politicians announce that you have duel loyalty, the oldest most vilifying anti-Semitic charge of genocidal racism.
• You vote for the party that can’t remove a repeatedly outspoken rabid anti-Semite from membership in the Foreign Affairs Committee, which sets policy with Israel and its friendly neighbors. 
• You vote for the party that dilutes and shoves its unhinged pre-Holocaust brand of anti-Semitism under the table, unable to pass a simple resolution against their hate of YOU. 
• While chanting anti-Trump slogans, you march with anti-Israel activitist Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory, women who rub shoulders with Farakkhan & Al Sharpton, men who proclaim your children to be “Satanic Jews”. 
• You vote for the party of Bernie Sanders, the man who defends Omar’s anti-Semitism and Palestinian militancy against Israel’s citizens. The same Socialist Sanders who once falsely accused Israel of a 10,000 dead-Palestinians genocide. The same Sanders who thinks your children “standing in queues for food is a good idea”. 
• Astonishingly, you lend your vote to the party of BDS advocacy against Israel...!
• You stand shoulder to shoulder with the likes of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who praises Jeremy Corbyn, accuses Israel of occupation, and now stands in official support of Congresswoman Omar. 
• You even vote for the party whose elected officials tell you (the Jews) that you and your ilk have “hypnotized the world”...! 
• You vote with the party whose elected official may be in violation of a federal statute for fundraising for two Muslim Brotherhood charities and its affiliates. Same officials who participate as keynote speakers at events for the Muslim Brotherhood affiliated groups IRUSA and CAIR. 
• You vote for the party whose loyal College Campus Academia ubiquitously advances anti-Israel positions & Israel Apartheid weeks, and writes endless editorial pages against Israel’s “aggression”. The piously liberal Academia that prevents Israeli speakers from speaking on campuses. The Academia that poisonously convinced your children that bashing Israel does not amount to anti-Semitism. 
• You vote for the party that morally equates Israel to terror groups and Islamic countries of horrendous human rights abuses. 
• You vote for the party whose right arm, the media, exalts the Palestinian cause vis-à-vis Hamas terror on Israeli borders and streets. 
• You vote “democrat” alongside anti-Israel groups like Jewish Voices for Peace, J-Street and George Soros. 
• You vote for the party, whose members tried to shamelessly tie the Pittsburgh murders to President Trump and even tried to prevent him from visiting the aftermath. 
• You voted for Hillary Clinton, Democratic Presidential for 2016, who by her own admission, was mentored by KKK member Senator Byrd. Photographed and videoed kissing the man while he was alive and proudly eulogizing him at his funeral. 
• You vote for the party that gave us the KKK, David Duke and white supremacy. All the while, relentlessly brainwashing the public to tie this Democrat evil to the Republicans. 
• You vote for the party that continues to ridicule and defame President Trump in order to keep the hate in you alive. 
• You vote for the party that unanimously voted against Lincoln’s abolishment of slavery, championed by the Republicans. 
• You vote for the party that stood against the 1964 Act for Civil Rights aimed to benefit American blacks. 
• You vote against the party (GOP) who elected first ever African American Senators. 
• You vote against the Republican Party that just championed and passed the anti-BDS measure with notable Democrats in dissent.

Going back to its Ku Klux Klan and Jim Crow days, the beloved Democrat Party of your ancestors has always been a hotbed of antisemitism — a party that has, for decades, tolerated and feted Louis Farrakhan while embracing Rev. Al Sharpton. A Party that is now in the firm grip of Congresswomen Tlaib, Omar and AOC. A party that is breaking free from the hiding of its genetic antisemitism.

So it isn’t the disenfranchised, marginalized-by-all 10,000 white supremacists (your party’s own embryo) you should be worried about. It’s the sweeping reach of the politically “correct” anti-Semitic Democratic Party into our collective psyche, our culture, our schools, our social norms, and our public opinion you should be disturbed about. Millions of malleable minds ingesting normalized anti-Semitism is a far greater threat to your children’s future than a one-time march of a unanimously hated group of thugs.

Your Party has failed you. It failed everyone it pretends to champion with its empty but loud rhetoric: the middle class, the minorities and the poor. It has conditioned you to see yourself not as proud Jews, but as underdogs only, indoctrinated to believe in the Democratic Party’s deliverance, irrespective of its dismal track record. Like you, this is the brainwash much of Soviet Jewish citizenry under the Proletariat of the old Soviet Union bought into, only a few decades earlier.

“Divisive” is not the work of the most Jewish President U.S. of A. has ever elected, but the push of Democratic Party’s agenda that thrives on three wings of hate: “Blame it on the Evangelicals”, “Blame it on the Russians” and “Blame it on Trump”. The party which now officially and proudly adds the 4th wing of hate to their platform, the one that you can’t run from or double-talk against; “Blame it on the Jews”.

Your visceral hate has been meticulously cultivated by the daily brainwash of the Democratic Party’s liberal media. In 2016, the Democratic Party received a total donation of $1,020,816, given by 1,160 employees of the three major broadcast television networks (NBC, CBS, ABC), while the Republican Party received only $142,863 via 193 donations from employees of these same organizations. And that's before we mention CNN and its boss who is toying with the idea of running for Democratic leadership. Are we tying the dots yet?

You stand with the party that has exhumed every hatred & division across racial & identity lines known to man. All to secure your loyalty and obedience as the perpetual underdog.

Today, in March 2019, you stand with the party that’s incapable of taking the smallest symbolic stand against anti-Semitism, let alone eradicate it from its ranks.

You stand with the party that stands against you.

You stand with the party that continues to elect Islamic and anti-Semitic politicians who propagate anti-Semitism proudly, even though your voter ballots are too few to matter to them in any election.

Yet, you stand against the party who takes up your cause and shows unequivocal support for Israel, and whose President wakes up to daily abuse for his pro-Israel, pro-Jewish stance, all despite your hate of him and your utterly insignificant voter power.

You’ve been duped. But believing a lie is easier than admitting you’ve been lied to. There’s no longer any ambiguity or defensibility of the Democratic Party and we all know it. They have sold you out, because your numbers are insignificant in the voting booth. And because another minority they can’t upset provides them with a much bigger voting block. You have a choice to continue on this path of self-desecration, dragging the rest of us to 1930s Germany with you, or you can walk away now, before the next election.

Your other option, to comfortably retreat right back into the lazy boy of your trembling Jewish knees and once again vote Democrat in 2020, still remains. Telling yourself the same old lie “Everyone is anti-Semitic. Why change?”

Just remember this; When you’re no longer at the dinner table, you’re on the menu. And you’re certainly no longer at the dinner table with the Democratic Party, Islam is.

What legacy are you leaving your grandchildren? The legacy of the new but all-too-familiar German Jews with heads in the sand? Or the legacy of the 21st Century American Maccabees? Your clock is running out.

As the majority block of the collective American Jewish vote, you have the power to determine how history and all our children judge us. Make the right choice.


          Trump and Nixon      Cache   Translate Page      
In Defying the Odds, we discuss Trump's character, involvement in scandal, and approach to the media -- which all suggests parallels to Nixon.  The update  -- just published --includes a chapter on the 2018 midterms.

From CNN:
Programming note: CNN Original Series “Tricky Dick” explores Richard Nixon’s political rise and fall, with never-before-seen footage, starting Sunday, March 17, at 9p ET/PT.
Washington (CNN) -- President Donald Trump’s rhetoric about the Russia investigation might seem unprecedented, including his blistering attacks on investigators and pushback against the press. But history presents another strong example. More than 40 years ago, President Richard Nixon grappled with Watergate and hit many of the same points as the scandal unfolded.
In both cases, the President and his White House were enveloped by a sprawling Justice Departmentinvestigation. Both times, this led to the departure of senior officials, a slew of criminal charges against people close to the President, and allegations of a cover-up. Nixon and Trump both relished opportunities to proclaim their innocence and go after their opponents.
There are parallels, but there are also some differences. Watergate forced Nixon from office in August 1974 after Republicans in Congress withdrew their support. Trump has maintained the backing of GOP lawmakers and voters alike. Indeed, many Trump supporters have embraced his narrative that he is the victim of a “witch hunt” and the investigation itself is the problem.
As special counsel Robert Mueller nears the end of his investigation and Democrats on Capitol Hill ramp up their own probes, here are a dozen ways Nixon and Trump struck similar tones.

El autor de 'Jony Ive: el genio' publica una biografía de Tim Cook basada en

En varias oportunidades hemos mencionado el libro 'Jony Ive: el genio detrás de Apple', escrito por Leander Kahney, quien recopila información desde los primeros años del ejecutivo de la compañía de la manzana. Pues bien, hoy le tenemos buenas noticias a todos aquellos que gozan leyendo las historias que hay detrás de la firma de Cupertino.

De acuerdo a 9to5Mac, un nuevo libro de los ejecutivos de Apple llegará a las liberías el próximo mes. Leander Kahney ahora tiene su mirada puesta en el CEO de Apple, de quien publicará una biografía casi cinco años después de la publicación del libro de Jony Ive.

Un adelanto de la biografía

Cook

Aunque el libro que resume la vida de Tim Cook no estará disponible sino hasa el 16 de abril, en Amazon podemos encontrar su descripción oficial:

"La muerte de Steve Jobs dejó un vacío enorme en una de las compañías más innovadoras de todos los tiempos. Jobs no era simplemente el icónico fundador y CEO de Apple; Él era la encarnación viva de un megabrand global. Era difícil imaginar que alguien pudiera llenar sus zapatos, especialmente Tim Cook, el ejecutivo intensamente privado que muchos consideraron como el "avión de operaciones" de Apple, indica el texto.

Según 9to5Mac, Kahney cuenta la historia inspiradora de cómo un hombre intentó reemplazar a alguien insustituible y, a través de un liderazgo fuerte y humano, su conocimiento de la cadena de suministro y su compromiso con los valores, tuvo más éxito de lo que nadie hubiera creído posible.

El libro tocará temas como la batalla de Apple con el FBI por el iPhone del asesino de San Bernardino, la sólida posición de Tim Cook en la privacidad, y el esfuerzo del ejecutivo por cambiar el efecto de Apple en el medio ambiente. Incluso, mostrará como las capacidades del actual CEO de la firma de Cupertino llevaron a la compañía a ser el primer negocio valuado en un billón de dólares,. Para poder construir esta historia, el escritor se basó en información privilegiada de Apple.

La biografía de 'Tim Cook: el genio que llevó a Apple al siguiente nivel' está ya disponible en preventa en Amazon por 11,86 euros y se enviará a partir del 4 de abril a quienes lo compren ahora.

          Fox's week from hell      Cache   Translate Page      


Melissa Joskow / Media Matters

Madison Avenue advertising executives are scheduled to visit Fox News’ studio on Wednesday for an event unique in the right-wing network’s history: an emergency pitch to major media buyers that they should not abandon the network. It’s been a brutal few years for Fox’s advertiser relations, as numerous blue-chip companies have pulled their ads from the programs of star hosts Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, and Laura Ingraham in light of their bigoted and unhinged commentary. Fox’s executives have responded by trying to stem these losses with a public relations effort refocusing attention on the network’s “news” side anchors like Chris Wallace and Bret Baier, whom they argue are adept journalists. This week’s sit-down will make that case to the advertising industry, with Fox arguing that its controversies are behind it and media buyers shouldn't be afraid to advertise on the network, particularly on Fox's "news" programs.

This argument is deeply flawed. Fox's business model is built around its vitriolic right-wing hosts, who use rage and fear to stir up their audience and keep them coming back for more. As long as that is the case, the network's advertisers will find themselves in the center of a constant stream of controversies whenever the extremism and bigotry of Fox stars become apparent to anyone outside of their viewers. And Fox can't cordon off its "news" side from its "opinion" stars -- the former play a key role in bolstering the propaganda machine built around the latter.

Given that Fox is asking the advertising industry to kindly ignore the bile coming out of the mouths of the network’s most famous personalities, Fox's executives were likely hoping for at least a quiet PR week leading into the meeting to help them make their case. It hasn’t worked out that way. Instead, Fox has suffered the week from hell, with its propaganda and bigotry triggering an escalating series of brutal headlines that lay bare the rot at the heart of the network. And the network’s fumbling efforts to staunch its nightmarish, self-inflicted wounds only make the situation worse.

The week began with an 11,000-word reported piece in the nation’s pre-eminent news magazine by one of its most celebrated reporters detailing the network’s effective merger with President Donald Trump’s White House and its emergence as a “state TV” apparatus supporting his administration. Jane Mayer’s New Yorker piece wedded damning new details of journalistic malfeasance to first-rate storytelling, providing readers with a horrifying picture of Fox operations diametrically opposed to the one that the network’s executives try to paint.

Mayer’s story had legs. For several days, the story was a major topic of debate throughout the media. On Thursday, Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez cited it in announcing that the party would not partner with Fox for a presidential primary debate, preventing Fox executives from being able to crow that its “news” side is considered as credible as any other, rather than an essential cog in a corrupt machine. By Saturday, CNN President Jeff Zucker was openly describing Fox as “propaganda” and arguing that its journalists “work at a place that has done tremendous damage to this country.”

In its effort to shape Mayer’s story and its response to criticism following the article’s publication, Fox’s PR team sought to focus attention on the efforts of its news side. After the DNC severely damaged that argument by rejecting the network’s pitch for a primary debate, some of those very same news-side personalities went on the attack, accusing critics of “Fox derangement syndrome.”

The weekend brought no respite for Fox.

On Saturday night, Fox host Jeanine Pirro responded to the controversy surrounding Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) use of anti-Semitic tropes with a monologue steeped in unhinged Islamophobic bigotry. Pirro suggested that Omar’s comments were rooted in her identity as a practicing Muslim. “Think about it: Omar wears a hijab," Pirro said. "Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?” Pirro’s remarks triggered an immediate outcry, with commentators on the right and left pointing out that they were disgraceful and un-American.

More than 24 hours later, Fox finally responded, issuing a statement with no name attached saying that the network “strongly condemn[s]” the comments and that “we have addressed the matter with [Pirro] directly.” The network has repeatedly used the “addressed the matter” construction over the years when trying to make problematic stories go away. Fox made no mention of any other sanctions against its host, and if she received any sort of stern talking-to, it obviously had no effect, as Fox’s release also included a statement from Pirro in which she did not apologize, express remorse, or say that it wouldn’t happen again.

By the time Fox’s PR team finally got around to acknowledging their Pirro problem, they were already fielding questions about an impending Carlson crisis. On Sunday night, Media Matters released a series of clips featuring the Fox host using sexist, misogynistic, and perverted language about women and young girls -- including defenses of statutory rape -- during regular appearances on a shock jock’s radio show between 2006 and 2011 (Fox hired Carlson in 2009). Carlson’s show hemorrhaged advertisers last year due to his frequent use of white nationalist rhetoric.

Carlson’s remarks are disgusting. But as The Washington Post’s Erik Wemple points out, Fox can’t express shock over them because they are also entirely consistent with Carlson’s commentary, before and after he joined Fox, on its airwaves and off of them. 

And so far, Fox is publicly expressing … nothing. The network has not commented at all despite a burgeoning firestorm in response to Carlson’s remarks. So far, the network has let its host speak for himself, allowing Carlson to issue a statement on Sunday night in which he lied about what he did and sneered at the notion that he might “express the usual ritual contrition.” Then on Monday night, he devoted his opening monologue to lashing out at the "outrage machine" of his critics and declaring that "we will never bow to the mob." Perhaps boxing in his employer, he also claimed that "Fox News is behind us" (Wemple subsequently confirmed with Fox PR that was the case). Minutes later, Media Matters released a second set of clips from Carlson's shock jock interviews, these dealing with Carlson's racist commentary, including references to Iraqis as "semiliterate primitive monkeys” who “don’t use toilet paper or forks.”  

Those are just the major stories that have battered Fox over the last week. Then there are the ones that might cause a PR crisis somewhere else, but are sadly typical for the network: The host who mixes up two Black interviewers; the regular guest who calls for Trump to use the National Guard to break up protests on college campuses; the network personality’s report that she was sexually harassed by Fox founder Roger Ailes; our Fox-obsessed president tweeting misquotes from the network’s programming to burnish his economic record; a host using the language of white nationalists to criticize Democrats about immigration; a former network co-president, still drawing a salary from the network, forced to resign from his job overseeing Trump’s communications.

Some of these stories were shocking. But if you’ve been paying attention to Fox in recent years, none of them was surprising. Pro-Trump propaganda, anti-Muslim hate, and misogynistic commentary have all been not just tolerated but rewarded by the network for years. And that’s the danger for Fox advertisers and media buyers who recommend placing ads on the network -- they have no plausible deniability whatsoever. A new round of headlines just as bad, about conduct just as deplorable, is always just around the corner.

What may prove particularly unnerving for advertisers is Fox’s unwillingness to take real action in response to these rolling PR crises. And this shows the connection between the three major stories that hit the network over the past week: Pirro and Carlson are effectively protected by Fox’s status as a pro-Trump propaganda outlet. Fox executives may issue an unsigned statement criticizing Pirro’s remarks, but it’s difficult to imagine them pushing for accountability from a close friend and sometime adviser to a president who watches her show each week. The same goes for Carlson, whose commentary Trump loves and whose show the president often tweets about. And again, this sort of unhinged and extreme rhetoric is what keeps Fox's audience loyal.

Fox is desperately trying to shore up its relationships with advertisers precisely because of this dynamic. At any other news organization, one could expect this level of vitriol to trigger some type of accountability. But at Fox, with few exceptions that almost always feature low-profile commentators, this simply does not happen.

And with Fox unwilling to act, activists who hope to actually impact the network’s programming have little recourse except to the network’s advertisers, creating the blowback that Fox’s Wednesday meeting seeks to heal.

          'Bomb cyclone' to bring snow, hail, rain to central US      Cache   Translate Page      

An intense and ferocious winter storm -- a "bomb cyclone" -- is expected to bring hurricane-force wind gusts, blizzard conditions and a flood threat across a swath of the US heartland Wednesday.

A bomb cyclone occurs when there is a rapid pressure drop, falling at least 24 millibars (which measures atmospheric pressure) over 24 hours known as bombogenesis.

The massive storm is expected to wallop areas including the Rockies, Central/Northern Plains to the Upper Midwest with blizzard conditions and winds that could blow from 50 to 70 miles per hour. Other hazards include heavy snow and severe storms with possible tornadoes and flooding.

Blizzard and winter storm warnings are in effect for portions of Colorado, Wyoming, Nebraska and South Dakota. Heavy snow is expected in portions of the Rockies and northern Plains, including Denver into Thursday.

Travel will be dangerous, if not impossible, at times, across the front range where the blizzard warning has been issued. Severe storms capable of producing damaging winds, hail, and tornadoes is forecast from the southern Plains and into the Mississippi River Valley. More than 45 people million are under a high wind threat; more than 10 million are under winter storm threats; and more than 15 million are under a flood threat

See and compare more forecast maps >>>

The National Weather Service in Boulder, Colorado, issued a blunt message Tuesday: "Please cancel any travel plans Wednesday afternoon and evening especially east of I-25, and stay tuned for further updates!"

It warned of icy roads, whiteout conditions and strong winds.

"The heavy snow and visibility near zero will create extremely dangerous travel conditions, and power outages are also possible," according to the National Weather Service.

Travel and schools affected

More than 1,000 flights have been canceled Wednesday, according to FlightAware. The majority of those cancellations are at Denver International Airport (DIA), where a blizzard warning is in effect. Southwest, Frontier and United have canceled flights and more cancellations and delays are possible, DIA said.

Multiple Colorado school districts, including the Denver Public Schools are closed Wednesday "due to severe weather and road conditions," the district announced Tuesday.

All school-related events and activities that were scheduled for Wednesday are also canceled. Denver is under a blizzard warning, and snow accumulations of five to eight inches are expected.

Thunderstorms across portions of the southern Plains will make way on Wednesday for sustained winds of 35 to 45 mph, akin to the strength of a low-end tropical storm. NWS has issued high wind watches for more than 8 million people.

Gusts up to 100 mph

Wind gusts of 50 to 70 mph are expected Wednesday afternoon through Thursday morning across Colorado, New Mexico, Texas and Oklahoma, CNN meteorologist Monica Garrett said. Some areas could see gusts as strong as 100 mph, which is equivalent to the wind speed of a Category 2 hurricane.

The storm is forecast to rapidly intensify overnight Wednesday east of the Colorado Rockies and trek slowly northeast through Thursday, delivering a variety of extreme weather from New Mexico to the Midwest. Snow is expected to taper off by midday Thursday, but strong winds may persist through the evening.

In addition, flood watches have been issued across the Midwest and Great Plains amid concerns that heavy rains will melt snowpack and trigger significant flooding. Flash flooding is possible if ice jams clog rivers and streams, the weather service noted.

          First person on Mars likely to be a woman: NASA      Cache   Translate Page      

Washington:The first person on Mars is 'likely to be a woman', NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine has said.

"It's likely to be a woman, the first next person on the Moon. It's also true that the first person on Mars is likely to be a woman," CNN cited Bridenstine as saying on a science and technology radio talk show "Science Friday".

The NASA administrator did not identify a specific person but said women are at the forefront of the agency's upcoming plans.

NASA will also have its first all-female spacewalk at the end of the month, when astronauts Anne McClain and Christina Koch will get to float around in space. The spacewalk will last about seven hours, according to the US space agency.

"So these are great days. We have the first all-female spacewalk happening this month at the end of March, which is of course, National Women's Month," Bridenstine said.

Both McClain and Koch were part of the 2013 astronaut class, half of which were women. They came from the second largest applicant pool NASA has ever received -- more than 6,100. The most recent class of flight directors was also 50 per cent women, NASA said.

NASA has come a long way since 1978, when the first six women joined NASA's astronaut corps. Currently, women comprise 34 per cent of its active astronauts, according to the agency.

"NASA is committed to making sure we have a broad and diverse set of talent and we're looking forward to the first woman on the moon," Bridenstine said.

          US threatens Germany against using Huawei 5G tech      Cache   Translate Page      

Washington: US Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell has sent a letter to the German government threatening to curtail access to American intelligence if Berlin decides to issue contracts to Chinese tech giant Huawei to build their 5G communications networks, the media reported.

"The Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Energy has indeed received a letter; there is no comment on its content from their side. There will be a quick reply," CNN quoted Matthias Wehler, spokesperson at the German embassy in Washington D.C., as saying on Monday.

Germany announced on March 7 that it wouldn't ban any company from bidding on 5G contracts.

The State Department has not commented on Grenell's letter, but Garrett Marquis, a National Security Council spokesperson, outlined how Huawei's 5G networks could pose a constantly evolving and shifting threat.

"Because 5G networks are largely software-defined, updates pushed to the network by the manufacturer can radically change how they operate," Marquis told CNN.

"The 5G networks our allies buy won't be the networks that they eventually operate, as the software could be changed on a moment-to-moment basis by the manufacturer."

The letter follows similar warnings by President Donald Trump's administration urging allies to ban or restrict Huawei products from their 5G networks due to its ability to compromise national security by selling equipment with "backdoors" that could allow for unauthorised surveillance.

China and Huawei have vigorously pushed back on the US charges and the telecom giant last week filed a suit against Washington over the 2019 National Defence Authorization Act, which bans American federal agencies from buying Huawei products.

The lawsuit is Huawei's most aggressive move yet to fight back against US claims.

Germany's March 7 announcement follows a similar decision by the UK. Both countries argue they can mitigate any risks and their decisions could make it harder for Washington to convince smaller countries to follow suit.

Security concerns have led Australia to completely ban the company's technology and New Zealand has moved to partially restrict it.

The 5G network is the next generation of wireless networks that promises to be 100 times faster and more reliable than current technology.

It is a market that will be worth billions, as 5G will require compatible new phones and communications equipment.

          IN SEARCH OF WHAT TRUMP ACTUALLY SAID: A storm of critical paraphrase!      Cache   Translate Page      
TUESDAY, MARCH 12, 2019

Assessing what journalists said:
Last week, Rep. Ilhan touched off a firestorm with her remarks about—well, with her remarks about whatever her remarks were about.

We won't be discussing Rep. Omar's remarks this week. We'll be discussing one part of the mainstream press corps's reaction to the ensuing storm.

As part of that ensuing storm, Donald J. Trump began to declaim about the alleged anti-Semitism of Those People, the ones in the Democratic Party, the bad people found Over There.

This involved typical bullsh*t from Trump, and mainstream reaction was swift. Especially on CNN, cable hosts and cable pundits began assailing Donald J. Trump for his own alleged anti-Semitism.

Especially on CNN, hosts and pundits referred to some of Trump's remarks in the wake of the "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville in August 2017. Trump had betrayed his true colors at that time, these hosts and pundits said. For one example, consider a presentation on Anderson Cooper's CNN show during last Friday's 9 PM hour.

Max Boot, an anti-Trump conservative, declared that Omar had engaged in "textbook anti-Semitism." He then criticized Democrats for "hesitating to call out one of their own."

You can assess that view as you wish. After Boot had had his say, Cooper proceeded to talk about Donald J. Trump:
BOOT (3/8/19, 9 PM hour): Well what Congresswoman Omar said, Anderson, is really, to my mind, textbook anti-Semitism, because she was saying that people who support Israel are pledging loyalty to a foreign country.

[...]

Unfortunately, Democrats are being just as tribalistic as Republicans and they're hesitating to call out one of their own.

COOPER: And in fact, giving President Trump an opportunity to turn the tables and be the voice calling out anti-Semitism, which is obviously—I don't know if "ironic" is even the right word, but obviously stands in stark contrast to what he said after Charlottesville about there being good people "on both sides," talking about neo-Nazis.

BOOT: Exactly, the Democrats are giving Donald Trump, of all people, an opportunity to posture as an enemy of bigotry. Which is ridiculous because, as you were pointing out, the Charlottesville marchers who were saying "Jews will not replace us," those are the people that Donald Trump was praising as "some very fine people."
It couldn't be starker than that! According to Boot, Trump had explicitly said that there were "some very fine people" among the Charlottesville marchers who have been widely seen on videotape chanting, "Jews will not replace us."

Meanwhile, according to Cooper, Trump was explicitly talking about "neo-Nazis" when he made his widely-quoted statement about there being good people "on both sides."

It couldn't be much more explicit than that! Trump had said there were "some very fine people" among the pitiful, crackpot neo-Nazis who staged a pitiful, crackpot march through the campus of UVa, chanting their crackpot slogan.

This march was held on the evening of Friday, August 11. The marchers have been widely seen on videotape chanting their pitiful crackpot slogan. According to Cooper and Boot, Donald J. Trump had then gone out and said there were fine people among them.

It couldn't be much starker than that—but did Donald J. Trump really say that? Did he really say that there were "very fine people" among the people who marched through the UVa campus chanting that idiot slogan?

We'll be trying to answer that question all week. That said, the claim was widely voiced last week, on CNN and PBS though not, it would seem, on MSNBC.

Indeed, Cooper had advanced a version of the claim at the start of last Friday's 8 PM hour, one hour before his session with Boot. On this occasion, Cooper had actually played the videotape of the slogan-chanting marchers, then moved to his stark assessment of what Trump had said:
COOPER (3/8/19, 8 PM hour): There's plenty to criticize about the Democrats' response to one of their own member's comments, and we're going to get into that shortly. But, Keeping Them Honest, it is more than a little rich to see the president criticize anyone for not condemning anti-Semitism when he had such a hard time condemning this:

CHARLOTTESVILLE MARCHERS (videotape): Jews will not replace us! Jews will not replace us! Jews will not—

COOPER: White nationalists and neo-Nazis, in public, marching in Charlottesville, chanting that and other Nazi-era slogans, "Jews will not replace us," at a weekend of protests that ended with a white supremacist ramming his car to a crowd of counter-protesters and killing a young woman.

TRUMP (videotape) You also had people that were very fine people, on both sides. You had people in that group, excuse me. Excuse me. I saw the same pictures as you did.

COOPER: "Very fine people on both sides." Which could mean he needs glasses. That's one possibility. The other is, maybe anti-Semitism doesn't really move the needle for him unless he's attacking political points.
To watch this segment, click here.

Cooper seemed to say, rather directly, that Trump had said that there were "very fine people" among those neo-Nazi anti-Semites. He played the tape of the neo-Nazi march and said Trump had spoken well of some of them.

Did Trump really say that there were fine people among those crackpot marchers? CNN's Erin Burnett had said the same thing the night before, even more explicitly. She too played the videotape of the slogan-chanting marchers:
BURNETT (3/7/19): President Trump slamming House Democrats for not officially condemning Congresswoman Ilhan Omar over her criticism of Israel that has been widely condemned as anti-Semitic...

OK, now, there is a point, but there is also this point. That comment is coming from a person who said there were good people in this group.

CHARLOTTESVILLE MARCHERS (videotape): Jews will not replace us! Jews will not replace us! Jews will not replace us!

BURNETT: So presumably some of those are good people. Joining me now are Alice Stewart, Van Jones, and Max Boot, author of "The Corrosion of Conservatism: Why I Left the Right."

Perhaps that was among the reasons, Max.

BOOT: That was a big one.

BURNETT: Right, I know, Charlottesville. Van, look, (INAUDIBLE) is not always the best way to look at the world. However, we just saw what was said there. The president said there were good people on both sides.
According to Burnett, Trump had explicitly said that there were good people among the blatantly anti-Semitic (and idiotic) marchers.

Variants of this claim were all over CNN by the end of last week. And sure enough! By yesterday afternoon, a variant of the claim was presented to Sarah Huckabee Sanders—presented by a journalist who, as our "journalists" may tend to do, was relying on memory alone:
ACOSTA (3/11/19): The president, after Charlottesville, saying that there are very fine people on both sides in Charlottesville, essentially suggesting that there are very fine people in the Nazis.

SANDERS: That's not at all what the president was stating, not—not then, not at any point. The president has been incredibly clear and consistently and repeatedly condemned hatred, bigotry, racism in all of its forms, whether it's in America or anyone else, and to say otherwise is simply untrue. April?

RYAN: ...That's kind of along what I was asking. Since the president did say that in Charlottesville, "some very fine people on both sides," has he, in your opinion, or has he or us, cause I don't remember it, condemned the neo-Nazis in Charlottesville for their actions against the Jewish Americans there?
To watch the full presser, click here. This exchange comes near the end, at the 29-minute mark.

CNN reporter Jim Acosta said that Trump "essentially suggested," by his remarks, that there are very fine people "in the Nazis." Working from memory rather than transcripts, CNN contributor April Ryan then said much the same thing. She left it to others to check the transcripts to see what Trump had said.

Tomorrow, we'll start by noting what Sanders said in reply to Ryan. And all week long, we'll examine the question of what Donald J. Trump really said.

Before closing for the day, let's get clear on what we won't be doing this week:
:
We won't be judging the adequacy of Donald J. Trump's remarks in the wake of Charlottesville. Believe it or not, we won't be assessing Donald J. Trump at all! (Nor will we be guessing at the possible length of Manafort's upcoming sentence.)

Instead, we'll be assessing the performances of Cooper and Burnett, and of Acosta and Ryan, not to mention Mark Shields' performance on last Friday's NewsHour. In short, we'll be assessing the journalists, as we've done at this site for the past twenty years.

We'll be asking if our journalists have been making accurate statements about what Donald Trump said. As we do, we'll ponder this related anthropological point:

In the end, especially at times which are fraught, how rational are we "rational animals," including those found Over Here?

Tomorrow: As stated by Mark Shields

          Student suing CNN, WashPost plans more suits, eyes Maher coverage      Cache   Translate Page      

CNN became the second news outlet sued by Nicholas Sandmann's representatives over their coverage of his January encounter with a Native American elder in Washington, D.C. And the Covington Catholic student's lawyer told Fox News’ "The Story with Martha MacCallum" Tuesday night they plan to file more lawsuits.


What they're saying: "We plan to file a suit every few weeks or month," Todd McMurtry told MacCallum Tuesday night. "At least 10 top targets in the media and individuals ... Certainly we’re looking very closely at NBC, we’re looking very closely at AP, we’re looking very closely at HBO for the conduct of Bill Maher, and we’re looking at some of the people like Kathy Griffin who sent out these horrible tweets that are called doxing."

Details: Sandmann's lawyers filed a defamation lawsuit last month against The Washington Post for $250 million, accusing the news outlet of falsely characterizing him as racist and intending to harm him because he's a "white, Catholic boy wearing a MAGA hat. On Tuesday, Sandmann's lawyers filed a $275 million defamation suit against CNN in the U.S. District Court of Kentucky. They allege CNN falsely conveyed to viewers that he was the "face of an unruly hate mob" and that the network "elevated false, heinous accusations of racist conduct" against the student.

The big picture: The viral video Sandmann appeared in sparked widespread media coverage and commentary that continued after evidence emerged that suggested the footage may have been misinterpreted.


          Αναστέλλονται και στην Ελλάδα με απόφαση του ΕΑSA πτήσεις των Boeing 737 Max      Cache   Translate Page      

Αναστέλλονται όλες οι πτήσεις των Boeing 737 Μax 8 και 9 και στα ελληνικά αεροδρόμια μετά τη χθεσινή απόφαση του Ευρωπαϊκού Οργανισμού Ασφάλειας της Αεροπορίας (EASA) να αναστείλει όλες τις πτήσεις των δυο παραπάνω μοντέλων στον ευρωπαϊκό εναέριο χώρο, με αφορμή τη συντριβή του αεροσκάφους της Ethiopian Airlines.

Οπως δήλωσε στο ΑΠΕ ΜΠΕ ο διοικητής της Υπηρεσίας Πολιτικής Αεροπορίας, Κωνσταντίνος Λιντζεράκος, από χθες το απόγευμα δόθηκε εντολή σε όλα τα αεροδρόμια για απαγόρευση πτήσεων των συγκεκριμένων αεροσκαφών στον ελληνικό εναέριο χώρο.

Αιθιοπία: Τα μαύρα κουτιά θα μεταφερθούν στο εξωτερικό, για να εξεταστούν

Τα μαύρα κουτιά από το αεροσκάφος της Ethiopian Airlines, το οποίο συνετρίβη την Κυριακή, θα σταλούν στο εξωτερικό για να εξεταστούν γιατί δεν υπάρχει δυνατότητα για κάτι τέτοιο στην Αιθιοπία, ανακοίνωσε σήμερα ένας εκπρόσωπος της αεροπορικής εταιρείας και διευκρίνισε ότι "η ομάδα των ερευνητών θα αποφασίσει το πού".

"Δεν υπάρχει δυνατότητα εδώ, επομένως τα μαύρα κουτιά θα σταλούν αλλού για να εξεταστούν", είπε ο εκπρόσωπος.

Τα μαύρα κουτιά --ο καταγραφέας συνομιλιών του πιλοτηρίου και ο καταγραφέας δεδομένων πτήσης-- ανασύρθηκαν από τον τόπο του δυστυχήματος την Δευτέρα σε απόσταση 60 χλμ από την πρωτεύουσα της Αιθιοπίας Αντίς Αμπέμπα.

Όπως δήλωσε ο επικεφαλής της Ethiopian Airlines στο CNN σήμερα, τα μαύρα κουτιά πιθανόν να μεταφερθούν "σε μια πιο κοντινή χώρα στην Ευρώπη" αντί στις ΗΠΑ.

Ερωτηθείς αν τα μαύρα κουτιά από την πτήση ET 302 που στοίχισε τη ζωή σε 157 ανθρώπους θα μεταφερθούν στις ΗΠΑ, ο διευθύνων σύμβουλος της Ethiopian Airlines Τιγουόλντε Γκέμπρε Μάριαμ απάντησε ότι δεν έχει αποφασιστεί ακόμη.

Ο ίδιος πρόσθεσε: "Μπορεί να μεταφερθούν σε μια πιο κοντινή χώρα στην Ευρώπη με κριτήριο την εγγύτητα και την ταχύτητα", απάντησε.

          Pentagon begins developing missiles after exiting INF Treaty with Russia      Cache   Translate Page      

[USA], Mar 13 (ANI): The United States has begun work on new missiles following the decision to suspend the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty with Russia.

CNN quoted Pentagon spokesperson Lt. Col. Michelle Baldanza as saying, "We will commence fabrication activities on components to support developmental testing of conventional, ground-launched missiles."

Baldanza noted that prior to Trump administration's decision, developing of these missiles would have been "inconsistent with our obligations under the Treaty". She, however, asserted that the missile under work was non-nuclear.

"This research and development is designed to be reversible, should Russia return to full and verifiable compliance before we withdraw from the Treaty in August 2019," she added.

US President Donald Trump suspended the historic INF Treaty, a 1987 arms-control agreement, stating that the US plans to pull out of the pact due to Russian violations.

Earlier this month, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed an order suspending Russia’s compliance with the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty with immediate effect.

The text of the order published on the Kremlin website read, “In accordance with Item 4 of Article 37 of the Federal Law No. 101-FZ dated July 15, 1995, On International Treaties of the Russian Federation, to suspend the implementation of the Treaty Between the United States of America and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics on the Elimination of Their Intermediate-Range and Shorter-Range Missiles of December 8, 1987, until the United States of America rectifies its violations of the said Treaty or until it expires.” (ANI)

          Documentary 'Apollo 11' Brings the Moon Mission to Life With Lost NASA Footage      Cache   Translate Page      
Whenever I see footage of a rocket launch with a close-up of that sudden, thunderous inferno blasting from its base, I'm filled with wonder. I wonder what somebody could have said to talk a cameraman into getting that shot. Did they draw straws? Was it always the new guy? And this was pre-sunscreen, remember. The takeoff sequence in Todd Douglas Miller's amazingly immersive Apollo 11 easily ranks as movie history's most wondrous. It's preceded, believe it or not, by an equally mind-boggling sight: never-before-viewed video of that Saturn V spacecraft rumbling toward the pad atop a crawler-transport, a quarter-acre platform on tank treads that dwarfs the NASA workers escorting it. It's the closest thing to a giant, monster or god treading the Earth you'll ever see. The things we once imagined and made. Our first sight of Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins suiting up while clearly thinking pretty deep thoughts backstage at the Kennedy Space Center is indisputably cool, too. To be honest, though, nothing holds a candle to that instant of ignition. If you've never had a front-row seat to the spectacle of five F-1 engines burning 5,700 pounds of kerosene and liquid oxygen per second to push 6,000 tons of steel, wire and human cargo slowly heavenward, you need to see this. And you've never had such a seat. Nobody has. That's because just about all the footage of awesome stuff that took place in the course of the first mission to the moon comes from a trove of miraculously preserved 70mm Panavision film unearthed by accident in the U.S. National Archives. Someone at NASA failed to file it properly way back when, and its existence wasn't discovered until 2017. Talk about found footage. How 100-plus reels of Todd-AO celluloid (the format used in wide-screen Hollywood spectacles like Cleopatra and The Sound of Music) and more than 11,000 hours of un-catalogued mission control recordings happened to land in the filmmaker's lap is a story nearly as remarkable as that of the voyage itself. And nearly as complicated. So I will leave you with a link to it. Unlike that visited by those three astronauts, my space isn't infinite. When Miller began work on the project in 2016, he had none of that priceless material. All he had was a green light from CNN Films to come up with something to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the…

I'm good with all of this. 1. It keeps their liberal spawn in a liberal atmosphere that is less likely to have an opportunity of influencing a conservative student. 2.

Thus exposing more liberal hypocrisy. 4. As Mr. Redfield pointed out; this explains how AOC probably got into and completed the curriculum at BC. This puts a searing spotlight on liberal hypocrisy that even CNN is being forced to cover. Though they're using 'allegedly' to report the story. Hmm, that exposes more hypocrisy, doesn't it?
          NO MATTER HOW MUCH THEY CONTROL, CONSERVATIVES ALWAYS BELIEVE LIBERALS HAVE ALL THE POWER      Cache   Translate Page      
The opening monologue from Tucker Carlson's show last night appears on the Fox News website under this headline:
Tucker Carlson: We're becoming an authoritarian society - and the group in charge is coming after Fox News
Savor that for a moment. Republicans control the White House, the Senate, the federal court system including the Supreme Court, and, even after the 2018 midterms, most state houses and state legislative chambers -- yet "the group in charge" of our society is an enemy of conservatism and is "coming after" Carlson and Fox News.

Who's "in charge" of American society, if it's not the mostly Republican government? According to Carlson, it's the people who make dissenters disappear:
Ever notice how certain people have started to disappear? Not vagrants or runaways, the usual missing persons. But fairly prominent, well-educated people with dissenting political opinions. One day you’re watching or reading them online. The next time you check, they’re gone. You can’t find their videos. They’re not showing up in your Facebook feed. Suddenly you can’t buy their books on Amazon.

You Google them to find out what happened and discover they’ve been banned. They’re being called dangerous extremists, bigots and Nazis. For the public good, they’ve been shut down. Disappeared.

You’re a little surprised to hear this. They didn’t seem evil or radical to you. They were just free thinkers, saying something a little different from the party line on CNN. You don’t complain about it, though. You don’t want anyone to know you were watching forbidden videos. There’s a penalty for that.
Who's he talking about? Milo Yiannopoulos? He was dumped by right-wing groups. A mainstream publisher also 86'd his book, but Yiannopoulos was free to publish it himself, which he did. It made the New York Times bestseller list. Want to buy it on Amazon? Here's the link.

Who else? Roseanne Barr? She was on TV, then she published something controversial, and now she's not on TV. No, wait -- that was Kathy Griffin. Actually it was both, wasn't it?

Go on, Tucker.
... It was only a matter of time before they came for Fox News. Of the top dozen news networks in the United States, only Fox has an alternative view. The other channels speak with one voice. They are united on every issue, every time. They’re in almost perfect sync with the priorities of the Democratic Party.
Which is why they loathe half the Democratic presidential candidates and most fresh ideas articulated by Democrats.
Fox News stands apart. The opinion shows on this channel have another perspective. You might consider that valuable diversity, something different in a sea of sameness. The left does not think that. They would like Fox News shut down tomorrow. The other news channels agree. They would like that too. They are trying to do it now.
I wish.
It’s worth explaining how the process of banning ideas works, the means by which so many voices have already been silenced. The first step is defining political disagreement as a mortal threat to the country. Something that’s dangerous. That’s the job of a group called the Southern Poverty Law Center, an organization whose name intentionally masks its role as an enforcer for the Democratic establishment.
There's the big reveal. The group that's "in charge of" America isn't the GOP or the Federalist Society or the Koch network -- it's the SPLC! The SPLC is America's secret government.
Groups or individuals who challenge the official story on virtually any subject find themselves designated as a “hate group” by the SPLC. This is a handy way to crush your political enemies. By definition, hate groups don’t have legitimate ideas or positions. They spew only hate. You don’t have to listen to them or debate their claims. You can ignore everything they say. Your only duty is to suppress them. That’s the beauty of the SPLC: Once they call the people you disagree with a “hate group,” you can immediately move to shut them up by force. That’s what they do.
The SPLC hasn't designated Fox a hate group, but whatever.

Also:
That’s where Media Matters comes in. Media Matters is a George Soros-funded lobbying organization...
George Soros! Drink!
... whose sole mission is to punish critics of the Democratic Party. Media Matters often uses propaganda from the Southern Poverty Law Center to bully corporations, news executives and tech companies into punishing people it doesn’t like. Not surprisingly, the media love Media Matters.
So the SPLC and (((Soros)))-controlled Media Matters tell all the news organizations what to write and they all just write exactly what they're told, and...
This is the face of state media.
Yes, there it is. Fox News is a 24/7 propaganda channel for the president of the United States, but what power does that guy have? Surely not as much as the Southern Poverty Law Center and (((Soros))-funded Media Matters!

This is the worldview of the right. We could someday have a full-on fascist dictator in America, one who was suspending all civil liberties and putting people in camps, and the dictator's supporters would still be claiming to be weak and embattled, insisting that the terrorized, shackled, literally disappeared opponents of the regime were the ones with real power.

Carlson will survive -- hell, he's not even a top news story anymore, what with the college scandal and the questions about that Boeing plane. The careers of Dan Rather and Brian Williams suffered far more than Carlson's will. Fox as a corporate entity has never been attacked the government the way CNN has. But Fox and Carlson claim to be the real victims -- and every rank-and-file conservative in America believes that's true.

I had no starry-eyed illusions about raising children--because I was a selfish creature, I assumed any offspring I produced would be selfish as well, and would thus require something I really did not want to give...my effort and  energy, and quite possibly, the putting aside of certain dreams and ambitions. This was something I understood as a teenager.

As a young married adult, I sensed that God was changing my heart about motherhood. By changing my heart, I do not mean that I suddenly grew rose-colored glasses. He softened me to the idea that perhaps what I wanted so badly--a career--was not His best for me. He had a deeper, richer future for me as a wife and mom first, career second.   

This was not an easy change for me. Nor was it a one-time decision. There were several times where I doubted my abilities to parent well, or struggled with leaving the career-track. Sometimes, the idea of taking a long vacation from parenting seemed really tempting--but since I missed my children when  away just one night, ditching them long term was never going to happen. And after a short season of restlessness, God would always give me an event or sweet reminder that I was chosen to be the loving mom to three precious lives. I was on the right path, even though it was not always smooth.

So, the other day I read--with probably not a little judgment-- about grown women increasingly choosing to shirk motherhood because the choice they originally made is “not a fit” for them. These include women with college degrees, many who were no doubt proclaimed to be among the best and the brightest.  I was barely out of puberty when I could see the writing on the wall of the childbearing years, and these mothers are surprised by the work and sacrifice of parenthood? The real challenge these women face, of course, is not motherhood: it is the self. She looks in the mirror and sees the One Who Truly Matters. Narcissism is the plague of our times. 

Peggy Drexler wrote on CNN.com about mothers leaving children permanently in the care of fathers or other caregivers, describing the phenomenon as if it were some kind of emotionally detached science experiment: “American culture ... is still conditioned--through the media and pop culture--to believe that many women’s greatest desire is to have a baby. When mothers abandon their children, it’s seen as unnatural.”

What can be “natural” about leaving your child? It is not the same as changing a career or moving to a more desirable location. Children are not things, they are complex, feeling little beings deeply attached to their parents. An absent parent--be it mother or father--leaves a void. The CNN piece, by the way, ignored the fact bad fathering even exists: if the mother willingly leaves her children, the writer seems to assume, it must mean the father is the better care-giver, and therefore the child will be okay.

According to writer Deborah Moskovitch, “a parent's rejection of a child or a parent's inconsistent presence could drastically affect a child's self esteem ... [but] one good parent who is loving and nurturing can overcome the negative affects of losing the relationship with the other parent.” 
This assumes there is a good parent or caregiver left behind as well.

Motherhood is a gift. Just ask any woman yearning to have a child. A gift can be returned if it doesn’t fit, or if you already have one like it. But parenthood should have a no-return policy. Our children need us. If you are struggling as a parent, get help. Join a support group, surround yourself with emotionally healthy people who care about your family, communicate honestly with your spouse about your struggles, speak with a trusted counselor. You are a gift to your children, one they would not choose to return.

"I’ve told you these things for a purpose: that my joy might be your joy, and your joy wholly mature. This is my command: Love one another the way I loved you. This is the very best way to love. Put your life on the line for your friends." John 15:13.

          Así es la lucha diaria de una religiosa por los ancianos más pobres de Venezuela      Cache   Translate Page      
REDACCIÓN CENTRAL, 13 Mar. 19 (ACI Prensa).- La Madre Emilia Rivero, encargada de la Fundación Asilo La Providencia en Caracas, relató cómo es su lucha cotidiana para poder atender a los ancianos abandonados que viven en ese lugar que también sufre las grave crisis de Venezuela, marcada principalmente por la falta de alimentos, medicina y agua.

“Este es nuestro carisma, nuestro trabajo, atenderlos a ellos, cuidarlos, procurar que tengan su alimento, que estén vestiditos, que tengan la ropa limpia, que tengan agua, algo con lo que ha habido tanto problema”, dijo la religiosa a Sky News el sábado 2 de marzo.

Los ancianos son uno de los grupos que más sufre la crisis en Venezuela, una situación que hace que sus familiares se vean obligados a dejar el país y que, a veces, los dejen a su suerte en el país.

Con un pésimo sistema de salud, que ha empeorado con el apagón masivo que vive el país desde el 7 de marzo, se calcula que aproximadamente el 60% de la población depende de la caridad, liderada por la Iglesia Católica, para sobrevivir.

La Madre Rivero dice además que muchas de las cosas en su cocina, por ejemplo, ya no sirven y que aún tienen problemas para conseguir agua, algo que se ha agravado con el apagón que sufre el país.

Sky News señala que el asilo donde sirve la Madre Rivero podría atender a 100 personas, pero ahora debido a la crisis solo puede acoger a 40.

En declaraciones a Aporrea TV en diciembre de 2018, la religiosa aclaró además algunos rumores sobre la muerte de los ancianos en el asilo. “Algunas personas han dicho por ahí que aquí los ancianos se están muriendo de hambre. Gracias a varias personas, ellos pueden recibir sus tres comidas y reciben también a personas que los animan y les traen meriendas”, dijo.

“Tenemos aquí en el asilo a 40 personas, también recibimos en el almuerzo a otras 15 personas, otros más llegan en la cena”, agregó.

“Nosotros no tenemos ayuda de ninguna institución del gobierno” y tampoco “recibimos dinero porque ellos retiraron todas las ayudas”, lamentó la religiosa.

La Madre Rivero dijo además que el asilo a su cargo se sostiene gracias a las donaciones de distintas personas e instituciones.

Según informa CNN en Español, Venezuela ha sufrido apagones de varias horas desde hace una semana. Mientras el gobierno de Nicolás Maduro dice que esto se debe a un ataque cibernético de Estados Unidos, el gobierno norteamericano responsabiliza a la negligencia del régimen de Maduro.

Por su parte, Juan Guaidó, quien se declaró presidente interino de Venezuela, dijo que 16 estados en Venezuela continúan completamente sin energía eléctrica, mientras que seis cuentan con el servicio de manera parcial.

Guaidó indicó que el sector privado ha perdido al menos 400 millones de dólares por los cortes de energía que vienen afectando a Venezuela.

La falta de energía eléctrica ha dejado además, según algunos medios, el trágico saldo de 24 muertos en los centros de salud del país.

Los apagones han hecho además que la población no cuente con agua y que se haya visto obligada a recurrir a aguas servidas.

          IN SEARCH OF WHAT TRUMP ACTUALLY SAID: Mark Shields reports what Donald Trump said!      Cache   Translate Page      
WEDNESDAY, MARCH 13, 2019

Huckabee Sanders says different:
What in the world did Donald Trump say about those neo-Nazis? About those white supremacists, the ones who chanted those anti-Semitic slogans?

What in the world did Donald Trump say? Last Friday night, on the PBS NewsHour, Mark Shields offered his account. For the tape and the transcript, click here.

Michael Gerson had already criticized the way House Democrats responded to remarks by Rep. Ilhan Omar—remarks which many people had described as anti-Semitic.

Shields agreed, in part. "I'm not in any way defending or rationalizing what I think the congresswoman from Minnesota has said rashly," the genial, highly-paid journalist said. Soon after, he added this:
SHIELDS (3/8/19): The Democrats had to confront [Omar's remarks]. There's no question about it. But, I mean, we're talking about a president, Judy—let's be very blunt about it—who, >when the white supremacists marched through the streets of Charlottesville with torches, saying, "Jews will not replace us," said there's good people on both sides.

I mean, so this is— If you want to see anti-Semitism—

GERSON: And we should condemn him too. I'm for that.
That was Shields' account of what Trump said. In Shields' account, when the white supremacists marched through the streets of Charlottesville with torches, saying, "Jews will not replace us," Trump said there were good people on both sides.

"If you want to see anti-Semitism," there it was! So Shields rather plainly said.

At this point, it might be wise to establish a small bit of chronology. The ludicrous people who marched through the UVa campus emitting the ludicrous chant quoted by Shields did so on Friday evening, August 11, 2017.

The statement by Trump which Shields slightly misquoted was made four days later, on Tuesday, August 15.

Trump's remarks that day were made during a 23-minute presser by Trump in the lobby of Trump Tower. This constituted Trump's second live statement about the events in Charlottesville. Beyond that, the White House had already issued two other written statements in Trump's name.

"You also had people that were very fine people, on both sides," Trump said at one point during the August 15 presser. This statement has been quoted, or shown on tape, again and again in the past week, with reference to his typically demagogic claims about alleged anti-Semitism on the part of Democrats.

"You also had people that were very fine people, on both sides," Trump said on August 15. For people who want to be fair and even reasonable in their assessments of what Trump said, the question would be this:

Were the white supremacist neo-Nazis one of the two "sides" to which Trump referred in that statement? Was he saying that there were "very fine people" within that group?

That would be the obvious question. Is that what Trump said and meant?

To Shields, the answer rather plainly seemed to be yes, and Gerson rushed to agree. Then too, we had Jim Acosta and April Ryan, carrying the banner of CNN in Monday's "quarterly briefing" by Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

In yesterday's report, we showed you the bulk of that exchange. We'll post the basic transcript again, this time including Sanders' response to Ryan:
ACOSTA (3/11/19): The president, after Charlottesville, saying that there are "very fine people on both sides" in Charlottesville, essentially suggesting that there are very fine people in the Nazis.

HUCKABEE SANDERS: That's not at all what the president was stating, not—not then, not at any point. The president has been incredibly clear and consistently and repeatedly condemned hatred, bigotry, racism in all of its forms, whether it's in America or anyone else, and to say otherwise is simply untrue. April?

RYAN: ...That's kind of along what I was asking. Since the president did say that in Charlottesville, some "very fine people on both sides," has he, in your opinion, or has he or us [sic], cause I don't remember it, condemned the neo-Nazis in Charlottesville for their actions against the Jewish Americans there?

HUCKABEE SANDERS: The president has condemned neo-Nazis and called them by name, which is what we are asking Democrats to do when they see this same type of hatred.
Acosta and Ryan each quoted from Trump's August 15 presser, in which he made the statement about "very fine people on both sides."

According to Acosta, Trump was "essentially suggesting that there are very fine people in the Nazis" when he made that widely-cited remark.

"That's not at all what the president was stating," Huckabee Sanders said.

Ryan, who only works from memory, eschewing the use of transcripts or tape, then asked Huckabee Sanders if Trump has ever "condemned the neo-Nazis in Charlottesville" for their conduct there.

According to Huckabee Sanders, yes he has! "The president has condemned neo-Nazis and called them by name," she said.

Ryan, who only works from memory, has no recollection of any such statement. But is it possible that Huckabee Sanders' statement could be right?

Tomorrow, we'll start assessing that question. That said, we want you to remember what we are, and what we aren't, trying to do this week.

We aren't trying to evaluate President Donald J. Trump. We aren't trying to decide if his remarks about Charlottesville were as perfect as our remarks were. We aren't even trying to say if his remarks were adequate.

We won't be evaluating Donald J. Trump in what follows. Instead, we'll be evaluating the nation's upper-end journalists, as we've done for twenty years at his site.

We'll be evaluating the statements made by Shields and Acosta and Ryan. Also, by Anderson Cooper and Erin Burnett, whose accounts of What Trump Said we reviewed in yesterday's report.

We'll also evaluate the NewsHour's Nick Schifrin, who spoke on last Thursday night's program. Hosting a segment about this recent firestorm, Schifrrin said this about that:
SCHIFRIN (3/7/19): Jeremy Ben-Ami, I want to bring up President Trump. You mentioned him before.

[...]

In Charlottesville, when white supremacists chanted "Death to Jews" there, the president said there were "fine people on both sides," and more recently suggested activist George Soros, who's Jewish, might have funded the campaign—or the caravan, rather—coming up from Mexico.

Is that accelerating anti-Semitism?
Rather plainly, Schifrin seemed to say that Trump was referring to white supremacists when he made his remark about "fine people on both sides." Is that a fair and reasonable assessment of what Trump said and meant?

Did Donald Trump say there were very fine people among the white supremacists who marched in Charlottesville? Did he say there were very fine people among the Nazis and/or neo-Nazis there?

In the course of the past week, the airwaves have spilled with well-known journalists saying that that's what Donald Trump said. In fairness, though, we've seen these people engage in group misquotation before.

We've seen such tribal behavior before. Has this familiar type of group misstatement occurred again this time?

Tomorrow: One brave pol was willing to denounce neo-Nazis by name!

          CNN's Begala Calls Ivanka and Jared 'Cockroaches,' President Trump a 'Criminal'      Cache   Translate Page      
Tuesday's edition of The Lead ended with a discussion about a new book that alleges that President Trump wanted his daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared fired from their positions as senior advisors in his administration. When asked by host Jake Tapper if the book was a sign that “loyalty is preeminent with the Trumps," Democratic Strategist and CNN Political Commentator Paul Begala responded: "I don't think so...I think mediocrity is. And when you're too mediocre even for Donald Trump, you really got a problem. And of course they survived. I mean, cockroaches are going to survive a nuclear war." When pressed by Tapper if he was calling the Kushners cockroaches, he assured Tapper and the audience that he was "talking about a separate class of species." Considering the wide debate about anti-Semitism in the Democratic Party and the nation as a whole, Begala's comments could be interpreted as anti-Semitic since Kushner is Jewish and Ivanka is a convert to Judaism. Begala went even further off the rails when attempting to psychoanalyze the Kushners: "I know they both had difficult fathers, right, that's part of the book...one, a criminal, the other, Charlie Kushner, the New Jersey real estate developer."  A member of the "Facts First" network should know that the word "criminal" applies to Charles Kushner, who served time in prison for tax evasion and witness tampering, not President Trump. Begala did not face any pushback for calling the President of the United States a criminal.

          $2 Billion in Sight: US Lottery Breaks Record      Cache   Translate Page      
theLotter.com: “Estimated $1.6 billion US Mega Millions jackpot likely to be adjusted upwards due to unprecedented international sales.” Industry insiders widely expect this week’s record-breaking $1.6 billion jackpot in the US Mega Millions to break through the spellbinding $2 billion threshold before the draw takes place. One of the main factors driving the landmark prize up even further is the colossal number of overseas players participating in the US lottery. theLotter.com has long been one of the main lottery ticket messengers for players from outside of the US. TheLotter’s spokesman Austin Weaver said: “As the original pioneer we’ve seen the online landscape change rapidly in recent years, with more and more companies seemingly offering US lotteries online, but ‘the proof is in the pudding’: We’re unique as we actually provide paper tickets instead of mere bets, and with winners from Europe, Australia, Canada, Iraq and Latin America, we have proven to be reliable.” Weaver continues: “We’ve been growing steadily for 15 years, but sales really accelerated in 2016 when Powerball reached $1.58 billion and media outlets from CNN to CBS reported on theLotter’s services. What we’re experiencing right now though, is unheard of. The current Mega Millions jackpot is spurring on more sales from places in Europe than in 2016.” “With so much money at stake, overseas players tend to turn to theLotter, as we physically purchase tickets as opposed to offering a chance to bet on the draw like our competitors. There’s simply no guarantee at these sort of jackpot levels that a bet is even fully covered by insurance, so how these betting companies will come up with billions in prize money if one of their punters wins remains to be seen. Our paper ticket model may seem old school in the digital age, but there is no risk to players. When one of our customers wins they are flown out to the US to personally claim their prize, ticket in hand. It’s legal, we’ve done it for more than a decade and it’s secure.” “The current $1.6 billion Mega Millions jackpot is the biggest prize in lottery history. Now it is just a matter of time before we celebrate the first lottery billionaire. The question is: will it be an American?” Contact: theLotter Media Tel: +44-20-3150-0476 Email: media@thelotter.com
          Former Little Rock ICE officer reveals forgery on warrants for detained immigrants      Cache   Translate Page      
CNN reports today on the discovery by a former Immigration and Customs Enforcement deportation officer in Little Rock of a widespread practice of forging arrest warrants for suspected unauthorized immigrants.

Brent Oxley was fired for forging his supervisor's signature on arrest warrants for undocumented immigrants. He believed he was not alone in the practice because supervisors sometimes couldn't be found in time to get signatures before a 48-hour holding period for detainees expired. Said CNN:

Unlike Oxley, who outright forged his supervisor's signature, the other officers generally signed for their supervisors after getting their permission via text or phone. But in such cases — or when officers were given blank, pre-signed warrants — it's unclear how closely or even whether a supervisor would have reviewed an individual case.

Legally, the signature on a warrant attests that an authorized supervisor reviewed it and determined that there was probable cause to believe the person named was deportable. The Immigration and Naturalization Act doesn't offer the option of letting unauthorized officers sign for supervisors.

Internal emails and other ICE documents he obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request, since reviewed by CNN, show that other officers across the five-state region where Oxley worked had improperly signed warrants on behalf of their supervisors — especially on evenings or weekends. Some supervisors even gave their officers pre-signed blank warrants — in effect, illegally handing them the authority to begin the deportation process.


          Millions of Tickets Sold Overseas for $1.6 Billion US Lottery      Cache   Translate Page      
heLotter.com: “Increased demand for US Mega Millions lottery tickets pushes its rival Powerball jackpot to $750 million.” The worldwide buzz concerning US lotteries continues. One day after a singular player from South Carolina won $1.6 billion in the Mega Millions, the other big American lottery, the US Powerball, follows in Mega Millions’ slipstream with an eye-watering $750 million jackpot. Millions of Europeans, Australians and Latin Americans are ordering tickets for the $750 million US Powerball on Saturday. TheLotter’s spokesman Austin Weaver: “These jackpots are drawing in people from all over the world. And no wonder: the amounts at stake are unbelievable. This week’s winner of the $1.6 billion Mega Millions will be able to buy Juventus, Tottenham Hotspur, Paris St. Germain or Borussia Dortmund outright. He or she possesses more capital than Tom Hanks, Tom Cruise and Johnny Depp put together. It’s borderline insane.” “We don’t yet know the name of the winner of the $1.6 billion Mega Millions jackpot, and, in fact, we may never find out, because South Carolina is one of a handful of states where winners can remain anonymous to protect them against risks associated with this kind of wealth.” Weaver continues: “In the past week alone, theLotter has been in the media from CNN to the BBC, to Bild in Germany, as we’re one of the few trustworthy operators. We physically purchase US lottery tickets on behalf of overseas players. And this is allowed. The official Powerball rules state that “You do not have to be a citizen or a resident to play the game”. To collect any prize, however, a ticket must stay in the US. The US Immoral Acts Law states that you “are prohibited from importing any lottery ticket.” “That is why we keep tickets inside a safe and send a scan of the paper ticket to the customer. Winners fly out to the US and claim their jackpot in person. Our past winners from Europe, Australia, Canada, Iraq and Latin America have all been checked thoroughly by federal and state agencies and stakeholders and each time these authorities have concluded that we and the winners acted in an appropriate manner under the rules of the lottery and all applicable US laws.” Contact: theLotter Media Tel: +44-20-3150-0476 Email: media@thelotter.com
          Sons buy billboard asking for wishes for father's birthday      Cache   Translate Page      

When CNN attempted to reach Chris Ferry, his voice mail was full.

The New Jersey man's phone has been inundated with texts and calls from well-wishers ever since his sons bought him a billboard near Atlantic City.

The sign reads, "Wish my dad a happy birthday" and includes Ferry's photo and phone number.

The billboard went up on March 6, and Ferry has already received more than 15,000 messages from all over the world wishing him a happy 62nd birthday -- even though the actual day isn't until March 16.

Soon after the billboard went live, Ferry received a happy birthday text from a stranger named Nick. When Ferry thanked him and asked how they knew each other, Nick said he had seen a billboard while driving.

"(My dad) drove immediately to the sign and took a picture with it," said Ferry's son -- also named Chris.

Continuing a tradition of humor

Ferry's two sons, Michael and Chris, were stumped on what to get their dad for his birthday this year.

When they were young, they used to tell waiters at restaurants that it was their dad's birthday to pull his leg and maybe get free dessert, the younger Chris Ferry said.

So they decided to continue to honor his dad in a funny way. The younger Chris Ferry had recently purchased a billboard outside Atlantic City for his addiction recovery center, and he became inspired to get one for his dad as well.

"I called my brother (Michael) and said, 'What if we put dad's picture right on the billboard and say wish him a happy birthday?' The prankster in me came out," Chris Ferry said. "My brother said he loved it -- he was dying laughing."

He added, "It's go big or go home."

The two sons never expected so many people to reach out to their dad.

"We thought people in the local area and his buddies would call in, and this would be a fun memory," the younger Chris Ferry said. "We did not know that it was going to be like this."

          Why the Church Must Get Its Financial House in Order      Cache   Translate Page      

If church services were athletic events, pastoring would be considered a full-contact sport. Pastoring is complex and multifaceted. There is no area of human life which we are not called to address, and there is almost no detail or task in the church for which we're not held responsible.

To minister effectively to people, we must master the entirety of the human experience from cradle to grave. If that sounds daunting, it's because it is—and that's just the beginning.

We must also manage the organization where people gather to worship, giving due attention to things like human resources, marketing, building permits, easements, fundraising, tax law and corporation regulations, to name a few. With such an enormous workload and such high stakes, every pastor needs help. Every pastor.

In the Hispanic community, for example, I'm often asked, "What is the most pressing area of need in the church today hindering growth?" My answer is always the same: finances—namely, church leaders lacking the understanding of financial administration at a corporate, operational level.

As just one example from a community I'm deeply connected to, Hispanic churches likely account for over half of all new Christian conversions in America. These passionate new Christ worshippers—many of whom are also first- and second-generation Americans—don't just need spiritual training but also support in building and sustaining their church organizations as well. The crushing load of details are completely new to many in leadership, and there often aren't professionals in the pews who can lend a hand. Where do they turn?

While this may be especially true in the Hispanic community, the burdens and challenges are universal across all backgrounds and subsets. All pastors want our churches to thrive, and we want them to thrive for generations. We want a faith that is passed from fathers and mothers to their children and to their children's children. After all, we worship the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. God is a God of generations. Without good stewardship, our churches will never grow, nor could they sustain growth.

Let me state this as loudly and as clearly as I can—passion for the gospel of Jesus Christ does not preclude us from good stewardship.

Consider for a moment that half of Jesus' parables, and many of his teachings and actions, reference money. We cannot naively gather our people, enjoy sweet fellowship, raise the rafters with our worship, preach until the altars are full, and yet not put our financial house in order. The foundation of our churches must be so firm that any financial, legal or catastrophic storm cannot shake us.

The late Christian leader Ed Cole said, "The characteristics of the kingdom emanate from the character of the King." This same principle applies to how we handle money.

When the pastor of a church exercises good stewardship, the congregation sees that example and will do the same. As it's been said, faith is caught, not taught. As ministry leaders model financial stewardship, those who follow us will "catch" the vision of financial health and begin implementing it in their own homes and communities. As one generation watches and learns from the one before it, our churches can be sustained, multiply and grow as each new set of leaders steps up to the challenge.

But what exactly does this look like in real life?

Let's start with the twin pillars of any financial stewardship plan. First is giving. We must ask ourselves, is our church giving to others, providing for widows and orphans, doing the kinds of ministry outreach needed in our communities?

Second is spending. Are we buying our wants and then begging our needs? Are we repeatedly running our bank accounts into the red or leaving bills unpaid? Or are we taking care to spend only what is within our means, leaving some left over in reserve?

For some of us, mastering these two pillars might seem like an impossible, painful task. This is why pastors, just like all leaders, need to call for help. No pastor I know would jump on a bulldozer in the middle of a field to start constructing a church building. We would consult the pros and make a plan. In the same way, when it comes to building the twin pillars of financial stewardship, those of us in church leadership need to be humble and teachable, leaning on the experts.

There are actually people and organizations in this world who absolutely love helping you manage money and invest in your ministry. If you're like me and can barely balance a checkbook, that fact alone nears the miraculous! It was a personal revelation for me when I was introduced to my own team at Church Extension Plan who finally walked me through the intricacies and nuances of leveraging financial resources to grow and sustain our church ministry. Whatever you do, and whomever you work with, the big idea I hope you take from this is simple—do not go it alone.

Once you put the right team in place and commit to a disciplined process, your congregation is officially on the road to financial health. You'll probably soon discover you have growing reserves of money. When you get to this stage, it's important to once again call in the professionals for help. Remember the proverb: "Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed" (Prov. 15:22, NIV).

Should we use this as a down payment, take out a loan and build a new building? Should we put it in an investment account to earn a return? How much risk is appropriate to assume with church money? All of these are questions best answered with the help of trusted advisers.

Admittedly, it is intimidating to begin the process of putting our financial house in order, and we in the church don't talk about it nearly enough. But it is much easier to open our bank accounts voluntarily to kind professionals who want to empower growth in our churches than to do so involuntarily when creditors, courts and government agencies begin calling.

God only asks us to get started.

Drag out the bank statements. Make the phone call. Set the appointment. Face your fears. Decide on a legacy that will empower your faith to flow to generations after you. When we do our part, we can trust God to do His—and provide the increase. {eoa}

          Marcelo Tinelli recibió a Roberto Lavagna en su casa      Cache   Translate Page      
Luego de un fin de semana repleto de rumores y versiones, Marcelo Tinelli y Roberto Lavagna almorzaron este mediodía. 

La comida fue en la casa del conductor de televisión, en una de las torres del complejo Le Parc de Palermo.

“Sí, nos reunimos, era una charla que teníamos pautada desde diciembre, cuando compartimos un desayuno “, aseguró el vicepresidente de San Lorenzo en la puerta del edificio en el que vive ante periodistas.

Y agregó: “Tenemos coincidencias sobre la situación del país, no hablamos de nada puntual, la reunión fue muy buena”.

Uno de los dirigentes que facilitó el acercamiento entre ambos fue Eduardo “Bali” Bucca, intendente de la Bolívar natal de Tinelli y de relación fluida con el diputado nacional Marco Lavagna, hijo del ex ministro Economía de Néstor Kirchner.

Fuentes cercanas a los protagonistas de la reunión contaron que durante la charla hubo coincidencia sobre la situación que atraviesa el país.

El almuerzo comenzó con burrata y jamón crudo, vino “Fede” de la bodega del anfitrión, y una charla sobre los errores que cometió el gobierno en donde ambos coincidieron. 

El conductor manifestó que sentía que Cambiemos se equivocó en “cerrarse en todo, en no buscar consensos y en aplicar un plan de ajuste”. A la hora del primer plato -pasta con tuco, albahaca y carne-, Tinelli puso sobre la mesa el tema de la preocupante inflación, el aumento del desempleo, las tasas que “están por las nubes”, el índice de pobreza y la falta de inversiones genuinas. “No veo una apuesta en cultura, educación y ciencia. 

 Todo es achique y más achique”, cerró la figura de El Trece. Lavagna asintió y aportó números que grafican el escenario complejo que tiene el gobierno nacional por delante.

Pese a haber levantado el perfil en las últimas semanas con sus apariciones públicas,Tinelli repite ante su círculo de confianza que está más preocupado por el comienzo de su programa de televisión (previsto para el 22 o el 29 de abril) que por su posible desembarco en la política.

El ex ministro de Economía y una de las figuras más importantes de Canal 13 se comprometieron a volver a reunirse en las próximas semanas. A Tinelli le atrae la visión política y económica de Lavagna. “Es una persona de consenso que quiere salir de la grieta-valoró el fin de semana ante un grupo de amigos-. Mauricio Macri y Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, en cambio la fomentan”, concluyó.

¿Estaría dispuesto a acompañarlo en una eventual candidatura? Hoy esa posibilidad ni siquiera se está discutiendo. En el almuerzo de este lunes, se habló mucho sobre los problemas que tiene la Argentina pero nada sobre un armado conjunto para competir en agosto.

La decisión no es fácil. Un salto a la política significa mucho para Tinelli, tanto desde el punto de vista personal como empresarial. Hoy tiene un contrato firmado por dos años más con Canal 13 y su productora -LaFlia-se encuentra en pleno crecimiento.

En el caso de Lavagna, el camino hacia una boleta electoral tampoco es simple. Continúa con la misma idea que desarrolló en los escasos contactos que mantuvo este año con periodistas: está dispuesto a competir siempre y cuando haya un consenso amplio detrás de su figura.

En diálogo con Luis Majul en CNN Radio, el conductor opinó que el ex ministro “puede ser una buena alternativa” para la presidencia: “El tema es que él decida ser candidato a presidente. Está trabajando, está armando, se está moviendo. Me parece que es una persona que lo puede hacer perfectamente, puede ser un gran candidato a presidente”.

Asimismo, ratificó su visión de que tanto Mauricio Macri como Cristina Kirchner “tienen el boleto picado” pero aclaró que nunca los dio por derrotados en las próximas elecciones: “Cómo voy a minimizar lo que puede ser la figura del presidente Macri. 

No sé cómo se lo contaron a ellos ni me importa mucho. Si tengo que ser crítico lo seré y si tengo que ser elogioso también. 

Esta grieta nos metió a todos, le sirve a muy pocos -a dos personas- y el país está inmerso en una crisis económica social y política muy fuerte, no hay consensos y cada vez nos encerramos más. 

Si las personas que hablan -las de consenso de ambos lados- de esos dos sectores son las más corridas y aparece como solamente una vocación electoral de ambos lados, yo me preocupo”.

Relacionado a esto, sostuvo que la estrategia de ambos para octubre es “llegar dos y entre uno y otro decidir entre esos dos” y advirtió que ambos “tienen la posibilidad de seguir adelante”.

“Cristina, más allá de no hablar yo y no tener relación personal, me parece que es una mina que es la líder opositora. 

Líder por naturaleza. Te puede gustar o no, corrupción, no corrupción, las causas… Pero independientemente de eso es la líder opositora. Uno no puede subestimar eso”, completó.-

          US scare tactics will frighten off investors: Huawei CEO      Cache   Translate Page      

[China], Mar 13 (ANI): Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei said on Wednesday that the US government's campaign to isolate Chinese tech companies risks damaging America's international reputation.

“If this US administration always treats other countries, companies or individuals in a ferocious way, then no one would dare invest in the United States,” he told CNN in an interview five days after Huawei filed a lawsuit against the US government. 

The matter pertains to the US government alleging that Huawei’s products could be used by Chinese intelligence agencies, and hence posed a risk to national security.

Last year, US President Donald Trump signed the National Defence Authorisation Act (NDAA), which prohibits federal agencies and its contractors from buying telecommunications and video surveillance equipment from Huawei, and other Chinese companies including ZTE.

Calling the prohibition ‘unconstitutional,’ Huawei on March 8 filed a lawsuit against the US government.

“His (Donald Trump) tactics are all wrong,” Zhengfei said in the interview to CNN. “If he intimidates a country today, threatens a company tomorrow or wantonly arrests someone, then no one would dare invest in the United States.”

"Trump should be more open-minded and willing to accept all types of investment. If he becomes more tolerant of the world, then all the US-bound investments would ensure another century of American prosperity," Zhengfai added.

          Acosta Derangement Syndrome Watch, MRC Edition      Cache   Translate Page      

The Media Research Center is not satisfied with merely criticizing CNN's Jim Acosta (though it absolutely loves doing that); the MRC feels it must dunk on Acosta at every opportunity, and doubly so if he gets something not quite right.

For chief MRC Acosta-hater Curtis Houck, it wasn't enough for him to try and correct Acosta for something he thinks the reporter got wrong. He went into full insult mode in a Feb. 28 post, ranting that "carnival barker" Acosta "appeared in need of a safe space following President Trump’s Hanoi press conference" because he noted that Trump gave relatively little attention to American reporters. Houck went on to huff:

Now, here’s the facts. Along with New York Times national security correspondent David Sanger, here were at least six members of the White House press corps from American outlets that were called on: Major Garrett (CBS), Jonathan Karl (ABC), David Nakamura (The Washington Post), Ayesha Rascoe (NPR), John Roberts (Fox News), and Margaret Talev (Bloomberg). 

To quote CNN’s snarky motto: Facts First!

But Houck did not provide the total number of journalists Trump called on at the press conference, meaning he offers no context as to whether or not six American journalists is or is not a sufficient number relevant to the number of foreign journalists -- and, to Acosta's point, the number of foreign journalists working for state-run outlets in authoritarian countries like Russia and China -- that were called on.

Nevertheless, by the next day, the MRC's Tim Graham declared that Acosta's not-quite-proven-wrong statement was a "flat-out lie" --  apparently, Graham can read Acosta's mind now -- citing Houck's post to claim "Acosta was 'Pants on Fire' when he complained the White House press corps was ignored" (which was not what Acosta said). Graham went on to cheer right-wing Fox News host Laura Ingraham for taking shots at Acosta.

Houck, by the way, wasn't done insulting Acosta. The same day as the above rant, he unleashed another one complaining about "another long-winded, gloat-filled diatribe against the President" from Acosta and that "Acosta couldn’t help but make a juvenile slap toward the President." Well, Houck knows all about making juvenile slaps, doesn't he?

Houck expressed his Acosta derangement once more in a March 11 post (under the leaden snark of a "Dear Diary" headline):

After what must have been an insanely painful 42 days for the White House press corps, Monday afternoon featured a White House press briefing and, needless to say, carnival barker, CNN chief White House correspondent, and infamous newsman Jim Acosta made sure to make this briefing count.

Acosta used his allotted two minutes as best he could, tussling with Press Secretary Sarah Sanders over the Democratic Party’s issues with Jewish people and the President’s rhetoric as a source of what ills America.

[...]

Afterward, on CNN Newsroom, Acosta uncorked another long-winded, uninterrupted lecture about his dismay for what comes out of the White House. 

It's telling that Houck is more concerned that Houck is allowed to say anything at a White House press conference than the fact that the Trump administration went 42 days without holding one.

          Former Little Rock ICE officer reveals forgery on warrants for detained immigrants      Cache   Translate Page      
CNN reports today on the discovery by a former Immigration and Customs Enforcement deportation officer in Little Rock of a widespread practice of forging arrest warrants for suspected unauthorized immigrants.

Brent Oxley was fired for forging his supervisor's signature on arrest warrants for undocumented immigrants. He believed he was not alone in the practice because supervisors sometimes couldn't be found in time to get signatures before a 48-hour holding period for detainees expired. Said CNN:

Unlike Oxley, who outright forged his supervisor's signature, the other officers generally signed for their supervisors after getting their permission via text or phone. But in such cases — or when officers were given blank, pre-signed warrants — it's unclear how closely or even whether a supervisor would have reviewed an individual case.

Legally, the signature on a warrant attests that an authorized supervisor reviewed it and determined that there was probable cause to believe the person named was deportable. The Immigration and Naturalization Act doesn't offer the option of letting unauthorized officers sign for supervisors.

Internal emails and other ICE documents he obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request, since reviewed by CNN, show that other officers across the five-state region where Oxley worked had improperly signed warrants on behalf of their supervisors — especially on evenings or weekends. Some supervisors even gave their officers pre-signed blank warrants — in effect, illegally handing them the authority to begin the deportation process.

          Metaphors flow as Britain screws up Brexit, again      Cache   Translate Page      

Yesterday, after British Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit deal went up in flames (again), The New York Times accidentally published pre-prepared copy outlining both, opposing outcomes of the latest Brexit vote, as if both had actually happened. Successive paragraphs—separated by the word “or” on a line of its own—referred, respectively to “Parliament’s second rejection of the plan” and its “surprise approval.” Clearly, someone forgot to delete the latter. Scott Bryan, the British journalist who spotted the flub and put it on Twitter, asked: “What if the world just split in two and we are now living in two dimensions?”

The Times’s choose-your-own-Brexit-adventure moment is a convenient metaphor for a process that could still plausibly go in any number of totally contradictory directions before Britain leaves the European Union—or doesn’t—in 16 days. After months of legislative gridlock, journalists covering Brexit are running out of new things to say and trite ways to say them. “In previous Theresa May stories we’ve already used Groundhog Day, high noon, crunch time, cliff edge, cockroach/nuclear winter, Maybot, dead woman walking, wounded she-elephant,” the Times’s Ellen Barry tweeted. “Running out of metaphors. Will pay cash.” Robert Peston, the political editor of Britain’s ITV, went with a Game of Thrones comparison—that, too, felt tired. May herself offered up a metaphor by losing her voice and addressing Parliament in a hoarse whisper yesterday. Many outlets prominently mentioned it; The Sun, a well-read British tabloid, this morning splashed the headline “CROAKY HORROR SHOW.” It wasn’t a good pun, or a new reference. In 2017, May famously coughed her way through an excruciating speech.

ICYMI: An odd trend being adopted by CNN, NYT, and Politico

May’s lost voice symbolized her loss of control over the Brexit process, which is now more or less in the hands of Parliament. In the UK, several major newspapers spelled that out. The Guardian hailed “The day May lost control”; The Financial Times and the i used similar wording in front-page headlines. Many US outlets took uncertainty as their lead theme. The Times’s Stephen Castle described Britain “hurtling into unknown political territory.” An AP article by Jill Lawless and Raf Casert painted a picture of “chaos and doubt.” Its headline? “May Day.”

What happens next? As Jack Blanchard, who writes Politico’s daily UK newsletter, wrote this morning: “We don’t know. I don’t know, you don’t know, they don’t know. She [May] definitely doesn’t know. Seriously, nobody knows. We just don’t know.” Blanchard, to his credit, gamely outlined how the next few days could pan out. British lawmakers will vote today to rule out—or not—the prospect of quitting the EU without a transition deal. (Confusingly, May seems to be asking her colleagues to both oppose no deal and leave it on the table for future leverage; perhaps she took a leaf from the Times’s book.) If no deal is ruled out, lawmakers will vote tomorrow on the terms of an extension to the Brexit process. An extension, however, is not entirely in Britain’s control—it would need to be approved by all 27 other EU member states. That outcome, itself, is hard to predict: a CNN flowchart mapping out possible ways forward peters out into question marks.

So far today, British Brexit headlines are trading in ifs, expected to’s, and would-be’s. Early this morning, the government confirmed that it would, in the event of a no-deal Brexit, temporarily stop checking goods crossing between Northern Ireland (part of the UK) and the Republic of Ireland (part of the EU)—a key sticking point in the Brexit deadlock. That eventuality would, officials conceded, give smugglers free rein. The announcement saw journalists reach, once again, for the metaphors; it would, they wrote, effectively amount to a customs “honesty box” (an honor system). Metaphors, increasingly, are all we have to go on.

Below, more on Brexit:

  • How we got here: If, for some reason, you want to revisit coverage of previous Brexit false dawns, I wrote about UK media reaction after May first struck her deal, in November, and US media reaction after she canceled a vote on it, in December.
  • Stupid people and journalists: Before yesterday’s vote, Geoffrey Cox, Britain’s attorney general, stood up in Parliament to offer legal advice on the last-minute tweaks to May’s deal. While Cox voted for the deal, his advice helped kill it among his colleagues. A government minister told the Financial Times’s George Parker and Sebastian Payne that Cox erred by putting a criticism of the deal right at the end of his advice, where “stupid people and journalists would easily see it.”
  • Backstop to the future: Cox’s advice concerned the “backstop,” a controversial mechanism in May’s deal that would prevent a “hard border” on the island of Ireland, whatever happens with Brexit. If you’ve seen the term but don’t know what it means, the AP has an explainer.
  • What is Labour’s stance? Britain’s opposition Labour Party seems to change course from one day to the next. Under pressure from many rank-and-file members, the party’s leadership recently backed a second referendum on Brexit. As BuzzFeed’s Mark Di Stefano notes, that story was Sky News’s most viral political story of the past six months. But Jeremy Corbyn, Labour’s leader, did not mention a second vote in his rebuttal of May yesterday, and a party spokesperson this morning suggested pushing for one is not a top priority.


Other notable stories:

  • For The Atlantic, Hannah Giorgis writes that coverage of the Ethiopian Airlines crash has been another example of Western news outlets erasing African tragedy. Many of them “reported the news with unevenly rationed compassion,” she writes. “Some stoked unfounded suspicions about the caliber of the airline itself. Others stripped their reporting of emphasis on Africa almost entirely, framing the tragedy chiefly in terms of its impact on non-African passengers and organizations.”
  • Yesterday, news outlets continued to unearth incriminating old comments by Tucker Carlson: according to The Intercept’s Aída Chávez, he previously said he was “100 percent” Rupert Murdoch’s “bitch.” As Carlson continued to rail against such reporting on his show, many big advertisers stayed away. Neither Carlson nor Fox has said sorry; neither has Jeanine Pirro, for her weekend comments on Ilhan Omar. The Post’s Paul Farhi and Sarah Ellison ask: “Why can’t Fox apologize?”
  • In other Fox-silence news, The Daily Beast’s Maxwell Tani and Andrew Kirell note that in his 27 appearances on the network since November, attorney Alan Dershowitz has yet to be asked about an explosive Miami Herald report outlining the illegal plea deal scored, in 2008, by Jeffrey Epstein, Dershowitz’s pedophile client. “Dershowitz said he never requested that Fox News keep him out of their Epstein coverage,” Tani and Kirell write. “In fact, the lawyer said, he has brought up on Fox the allegations that he participated in the billionaire pedophile’s sex-trafficking ring.”
  • For CJR, Gabe Schneider takes a look at the East Bay Express, a storied California alt-weekly that now has no full-time staff writers and depends entirely on freelancers for copy. Robert Gammon—the former editor of the Express whose recent departure left the paper in the hands of its publisher—tells Schneider: “Journalists are really important. But with an advertising-based news model, the advertising staff are more important.”
  • On Monday, authorities in Venezuela detained Luis Carlos Díaz, an independent journalist, and accused him of plotting to cause a nationwide blackout. Díaz was released yesterday, but must now appear before a court every eight days, Bloomberg’s Patricia Laya and Jose Orozco report. Earlier this month, Isaac Lee explained Venezuela’s appalling press-freedom climate for CJR.
  • Vox’s Carlos Maza takes issue with TV news’s “tactical framing” of the Green New Deal. “I have watched hours of segments about the Green New Deal, and none of them explained how it might work,” he said. “Instead, they focused on the politics: Is it going to pass? Does Pelosi like it? What did Trump tweet about it? Everything, except, is it a good idea?” Last week, I wrote about Green New Deal coverage for CJR.
  • According to Jared Holt of Right Wing Watch, the Associated Press published at least three press releases containing misinformation and partisan propaganda, including one claiming that measles vaccines cause autism. As of late February, Holt writes, the AP has added visual markers to make it easier to differentiate PR posts from news.
  • And for CJR, Susan Schmidt, who spent 25 years at the Post, explores that paper’s response to the recent controversy involving its owner, Jeff Bezos, and The National Enquirer. “Longtime Post journalists say they were proud of the paper’s arms-length handling of the story, but annoyed that the paper was being dragged into it at all.”

Three weeks later, before WaPo lawyers showed up in court, before even the judge ruled on the three Atlanta-based lawyers speaking in court, the Sandmanns filed another suit against CNN for $275 million -- $25 million more in compensatory damages and an identical demand for "not less than" $200 million in "punitive damages". Same Eastern District of Kentucky, Same five lawyers out of GA and KY, Different judges (for now). At least there is no parallel construction to the odious paragraph 19 of the WaPo complaint, where the $250 million figure is tied to how much Jeff Bezos "the world's richest man" paid for the Washington Post. But the CNN Complaint does make the truth value of the President's claim that CNN is "fake news" an issue for discovery -- deposition time! This is curious, if CNN is Fake News how does that help the lawsuit? Similarly it claims Nick Sandmann never sought the ear of the public, yet I thought he had volunteered to a school-based anti-abortion protest. https www cincinnati com /story/news/2019/01/22/covington-catholic-why-march-life-isnt-like-most-field-trips-dicier-proposition-today-no-vacation/2643814002/

          Book Haul~New Stash and Recently Received      Cache   Translate Page      
Here's a new crop of books that have come in recently from publishers, and a couple that I've ordered for myself.  Things have slowed down with the publishers since I took a hiatus with my illness, but now that I'm back reviewing...are picking up again.  I'm delighted to be back and able to read again.
There's a mixed bag here as you'll see.


One I just ordered that came in this week!  I may have already told you about it, but it bears telling again.  It's fantastic.  Published by Orbit.  Here's a summary:

The Girl With All the Gifts is a groundbreaking thriller, emotionally charged and gripping from beginning to end.
Every morning, Melanie waits in her cell to be collected for class.
When they come for her, Sergeant keeps his gun pointing at her while two of his people strap her into the wheelchair. She thinks they don't like her. She jokes that she won't bite, but they don't laugh.
Melanie is a very special girl.



A new book ( #2 ) in the Flavia Albia series!  Thanks to St. Martin's Press.

SUMMARY :

"There are rules for private informers accepting a new case. Never take on clients who cannot pay you. Never do favours for friends. Don’t work with relatives. If, like me, you are a woman, keep clear of men you find attractive. 
“Will I never learn?”
 In Ancient Rome, the number of slaves was far greater than that of free citizens. As a result, often the people Romans feared most were the “enemies at home,” the slaves under their own roofs. Because of this, Roman law decreed that if the head of a household was murdered at home, and the culprit wasn’t quickly discovered, his slaves—all of them, guilty or not—were presumed responsible and were put to death. Without exception.
When a couple is found dead in their own bedroom and their house burglarized, some of their household slaves know what is about to happen to them.  They flee to the Temple of Ceres, which by tradition is respected as a haven for refugees. This is where Flavia Albia comes in. The authorities, under pressure from all sides, need a solution. Albia, a private informer just like her father, Marcus Didius Falco, is asked to solve the murders, in this mystery from Lindsey Davis.



Another Elin Hilderbrand...I love her stories, as I've said.  This is one I just bought at Target on a whim.  Don't you love the cover?  It's published by Little, Brown & Co.

SUMMARY :

A summer wedding stirs up trouble on both sides of the family in the newest bestseller from "the queen of the summer novel" (People)

The Carmichaels and the Grahams have gathered on Nantucket for a happy occasion: a wedding that will unite their two families. Plans are being made according to the wishes of the bride's late mother, who left behind The Notebook: specific instructions for every detail of her youngest daughter's future nuptials. Everything should be falling into place for the beautiful event -- but in reality, things are falling apart.
While the couple-to-be are quite happy, their loved ones find their lives crumbling. In the days leading up to the wedding, love will be questioned, scandals will arise, and hearts will be broken and healed. Elin Hilderbrand takes readers on a touching journey in BEAUTIFUL DAY -- into the heart of marriage, what it means to be faithful, and how we choose to honor our commitments.


This is an unusual memoir sent to me by Skyhorse Publishing.  It harkens back to the times when the Soviet Union was closed and at its worst where human rights was concerned.  I'm interested to give it a try...

SUMMARY :

There is always some part of the world where human rights are trampled and oppression quashes the human spirit. In the 1980s, it was the Soviet Union. In Swimming in the Daylight, Lisa Paul, a Catholic-American student living in Moscow in the early ’80s, details how she grew to understand the perverse reality of the pre-Gorbachev Soviet regime as her friendship with her Russian-language tutor, Inna Kitrosskaya Meiman, blossomed. Inna, a Soviet-Jewish dissident and refusenik, was repeatedly denied a visa to receive life-saving cancer treatment abroad. The refusal was an apparent punishment imposed on both her and her Jewish husband, Naum, for his participation in the Moscow Helsinki Watch Group—the lone group fighting for human rights in the U.S.S.R.
Before Lisa returned to the United States, she promised Inna she would do all she could to get her out of Moscow. But Lisa was one person, what could she possibly do that would make a difference? Inspired by her faith and rights as an American, Lisa staged a hunger strike, held press conferences, and galvanized American politicians to demand Inna’s immediate release.
In this heartfelt, compassionate, and inspiring narrative, Lisa brings the reader along with her as she learns indelible lessons from her heroic teacher. Inna’s greatest lesson—that it is possible to swim through treacherous waters, in daylight, not in despair—is as relevant today as it was during the final years of the Soviet regime. At a time when international strife seems insurmountable and worries at home seem to paralyze, this story will teach people everywhere that it is the courage inside, not the chaos outside, that defines us.

Louise Penny is a new author for me.  I've listened to one of her books on tape and enjoyed it, and look forward to an actual read.  I know she has a tremendous group of followers.  This was sent very nicely by St. Martin's Press.

SUMMARY :

Happily retired in the village of Three Pines, Armand Gamache, former Chief Inspector of Homicide with the Sûreté du Québec, has found a peace he’d only imagined possible. On warm summer mornings he sits on a bench holding a small book, The Balm in Gilead, in his large hands. “There is a balm in Gilead,” his neighbor Clara Morrow reads from the dust jacket, “to make the wounded whole.”
While Gamache doesn’t talk about his wounds and his balm, Clara tells him about hers. Peter, her artist husband, has failed to come home. Failed to show up as promised on the first anniversary of their separation. She wants Gamache’s help to find him. Having finally found sanctuary, Gamache feels a near revulsion at the thought of leaving Three Pines. “There’s power enough in Heaven,” he finishes the quote as he contemplates the quiet village, “to cure a sin-sick soul.” And then he gets up. And joins her.
Together with his former second-in-command, Jean-Guy Beauvoir, and Myrna Landers, they journey deeper and deeper into Québec. And deeper and deeper into the soul of Peter Morrow. A man so desperate to recapture his fame as an artist, he would sell that soul. And may have. The journey takes them further and further from Three Pines, to the very mouth of the great St. Lawrence river.  To an area so desolate, so damned, the first mariners called it The land God gave to Cain. And there they discover the terrible damage done by a sin-sick soul.  


Very kindly sent to me by Kensington Press, this is of course a historical fiction about Jack the Ripper and his wife.  Brandy Purdy is known for her fiction having to do with kings and queens of England.  I look forward to reading this new approach of hers!


I am so looking forward to starting this one sent by Tom Doherty Associates.  It looks awesome.  I love this type of thriller.  Read the summary below:

The Ark Storm is coming—a catastrophic weather event that will unleash massive floods and wreak more damage on California than the feared “Big One.” One man wants to profit from it. Another wants to harness it to wage jihad on American soil. One woman stands in their way: Dr. Gwen Boudain, a brave and brilliant meteorologist. 
When Boudain notices that her climate readings are off the charts, she turns to Gabriel Messenger for research funding. Messenger’s company is working on a program that ionizes water molecules to bring rain on command. Meanwhile, Wall Street suits notice that someone is placing six-month bets on the prospect of an utter apocalypse and begin to investigate. Standing in the shadows is journalist Dan Jacobsen, a former Navy SEAL. War hardened, cynical, and handsome, Jacobsen is a man with his own hidden agenda.
Linda Davies's Ark Storm brings together the worlds of finance, scientific innovation, and terrorism in a fast-paced thrill ride that will leave readers gasping.

 
A techno thriller sent kindly by Tom Doherty Associates, as well.  This one sounds like it could be a modern-day happening!  It's a follow up to another book, but, hopefully easy to catch up on.

SUMMARY :

A trip to an island off the New England coast—and away from the demands of police work—might be just what is needed to jumpstart Detective Doyle Carrick and Nola Watkins’ stalled relationship. But a mysterious plague is killing the island’s bees. Nola takes a job at an organic farm hit hard by the disease, working for the rich, handsome, and annoying Teddy, with whom she quickly becomes a little too friendly for Doyle’s liking. When Teddy’s estranged father offers Doyle a big payday to keep his son out of trouble until he can close a big government contract—and when Doyle meets Annalisa, a beautiful researcher studying the bees—Doyle decides to stick around.
Stoma Corporation, a giant biotech company, moves in with genetically modified super bees that supposedly are the answer to the world’s bee crisis. As tension grows between protestors and a private army of thugs, Doyle realizes that bees aren’t the only thing being modified. Annalisa’s coworkers start to go missing, and she and Doyle uncover a dark, deadly, and terrifying secret. Things spin violently out of control on the tiny island, and when Doyle closes in on what Stoma Corporation is really up to, he must race to stop them before their plot succeeds, and spreads to the mainland and the world.
Deadout is thrilling follow-up to McGoran’s highly acclaimed novel, Drift.



A mystery and crime novel also generously sent by Tom Doherty Associates.  This one is a Sonya Iverson series book.  Has been compared to Barbara Taylor Bradford in its storyline.

SUMMARY :

Elsa Klensch, host of the groundbreaking CNN news magazine, Style with Elsa Klensch, is the author of the New York Times bestseller, Style with Elsa Klensch. When she retired from television, Elsa took with her many secrets, stories she'd never been able to tell...until now in The Third Sin.
Television producer Sonya Iverson has a habit of stumbling over dead bodies. Wade Bruckheimer decides to sell a fabulous diamond that once belonged to his late mother. He needs money, and selling the Braganza seems the best way of getting it. His stepmother, Irina, is furious—that diamond is her ticket to every A-list party in New York. A few days before the sale, Wade is found dead in his luxurious apartment.
Sonya was already working on a story about the diamond and immediately begins to cover the murder, to the dismay of her boyfriend, who fears that Sonya is putting herself in danger. Irina Bruckheimer is the first, but not the last, suspect. Esperanza’s family want the Braganza back. There are long-standing rumors that Wade’s high-maintenance wife is having an affair. Only Sonya, with her outsider’s viewpoint, can sort through Wade Bruckheimer’s life and find his killer.
 

Beautiful cover...this one is an ancient Ireland mystery which is Peter Tremayne's forte'.  I love this time period and a good mystery.  This one should be a fun read.  Many thanks to St. Martin's Press for thinking of me with this one.

SUMMARY :

Winter, 670 AD. King Colgú has invited the leading nobles and chieftains of his kingdom to a feast day. Fidelma and her companion Eadulf are finally home for an extended stay, and have promised their son, Alchú, that they’ll be able to spend some time together after months of being on the road, investigating crimes. Fidelma and Eadulf are enjoying the feast when it is interrupted by the entrance of a religieux, who claims he has an important message for the King. He approaches the throne and shouts ‘Remember Liamuin!’ and then stabs King Colgú. The assassin is slain, but does enough damage to take out Colgú’s bodyguard, and to put the king himself on the verge of death.

As King Colgú lies in recovery, Fidelma, Eadulf, and bodyguard Gormán are tasked with discovering who is behind the assassination attempt, and who Liamuin is. They must journey into the territory of their arch-enemies, the Uí Fidgente, to uncover the secrets in the Abbey of Mungairit, and then venture into the threatening mountain territory ruled by a godless tyrant. Danger and violence are their constant companions until the final devastating revelation.
 
Atonement of Blood is a mystery of Ancient Ireland from Peter Tremayne.


On another note:

I'm reading "Outlander," "Me Before You," and "A Game of Thrones" presently.  Also have started "The Girl with all the Gifts," which I've said is excellent!

Hope you are enjoying your new reads.  Check back with me soon...

Highly misleading headline.
          Cohen gives Congress emails he says shows Trump legal team dangled a pardon after FBI raid      Cache   Translate Page      

Michael Cohen has shared with Congress documents he says shows President Trump's legal team dangled the possibility of a pardon.

CNN on Wednesday published emails between Robert Costello, an associate of Trump's personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, and Cohen, from April 2018, a few weeks after Cohen's home and office were raided by the FBI. Costello, who was considering representing Cohen, said in the emails he had just spoken with Giuliani and that the conservation was "very very positive" and "they are in our corner."

While not mentioning a pardon specifically, Costello went on to tell Cohen he should "sleep well tonight" because "you have friends in high places." Cohen, CNN reports, has provided Congress with these emails as evidence that Trump's circle had dangled a pardon; Trump has accused Cohen of lying in his testimony when he said he never asked for a pardon. Cohen later said through his lawyer that he did ask about it but didn't request a pardon from Trump personally.

Costello told CNN that the idea that these emails represent a pardon being dangled is "utter nonsense," saying he raised the issue with Giuliani briefly at Cohen's request and that Giuliani said Trump wouldn't discuss it. "If that's dangling it, that's dangling it for about 15 seconds," said Costello. Giuliani also told CNN this email was simply about reassuring Cohen that "the president was not mad" because "it wasn't long after the raid and the president felt bad for him," while Costello similarly said Cohen "wanted to make sure that Trump knew that he didn't hate Trump."

          Manafort's lawyer essentially asks Trump for a pardon right before he's hit with pardon-proof charges      Cache   Translate Page      

After his Wednesday sentencing, former Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort was looking at possibly spending less than six years in prison or having his crimes pardoned by President Trump. Now, he's facing decades behind bars — and President Trump can't do anything about it.

Manafort was sentenced to an additional 43 months in prison. This adds on to the 47 months he previously received, but considering he has already served nine months, and assuming he gets out early due to good behavior, that would add up to about 68 months behind bars, meaning he'd be released in November 2024, CNN analyst and former prosecutor Elie Honig noted.

Of course, there's still a chance Manafort won't need to serve this sentence and Trump could pardon him, and Manafort's lawyer essentially pleaded for the president to do so. After the sentencing, attorney Kevin Downing falsely stated that after Judge Amy Berman Jackson's decision, "two courts have ruled no evidence of any collusion with any Russians." In fact, Berman Jackson said that this case had nothing to do with collusion one way or the other, and she said the "'no collusion' mantra is simply a non sequitur." But Downing's statement, which fits Trump's favored narrative, was widely seen as part of an ongoing effort to obtain a pardon, with The Washington Post's Aaron Blake writing that Manafort's lawyers have "completely played into Trump's messaging."

A pardon might not be of much help anymore, though, as minutes later, Manafort was indicted on 16 counts in New York related to mortgage fraud, conspiracy, and falsifying business records. Because they're state charges, Trump cannot pardon Manafort for them. If convicted, Manafort could face up to 25 years in prison, The New York Times reports, meaning he is looking at potentially spending the rest of his life behind bars regardless of a pardon.


          Paul Manafort sentenced to another 3 1/2 years in prison for conspiracy charges      Cache   Translate Page      

Paul Manafort was sentenced to 73 months in prison on Wednesday in the former Trump campaign chair's second of two federal criminal cases.

The Wednesday sentence, issued by U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson in Washington, D.C., came in response to Manafort's guilty plea to witness tampering and unregistered lobbying. It also comes after Manafort was sentenced to 47 months in prison last week, receiving nine months credit for time already served.

Manafort's first case ran through an Alexandria, Virginia courthouse, where he was found guilty of eight criminal counts related to bank and tax fraud. Jackson decided Manafort will serve 30 months of his Wednesday sentence concurrently with the 47-month sentence, giving him a total of 81 months, or about seven years, in prison after time served.

Manafort faced up to 10 years in prison at his second sentencing on Wednesday. Like in his first trial, Manafort's lawyers asked for leniency after the GOP operative suffered apparent health issues while waiting for his trial and sentencing in prison. His friends and family also wrote letters to Berman Jackson, asking that he be credited for "promoting American democratic values" around the world, CNN details. Jackson rejected that plea, saying there is "there is no good explanation that would warrant the leniency requested." She did thank Manafort's family for the letters.

In his first case, Manafort was facing up to 24 years in prison. If he had received both maximum sentences served consecutively, it could've been an effective life sentence for the 69-year-old.

          Openly Gay Mayor Pete Buttigieg Definitely Impressed During CNN Town Hall      Cache   Translate Page      
Mayor Pete Buttigieg speaks at CNN Town Hall in Austin, TX

Openly gay Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana, appears to be building some momentum in his bid to become the Democratic candidate for president in 2020.

This past weekend, Buttigieg took part in a CNN town hall at the South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas.

Also taking solo turns on the stage were Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii and former Rep. John Delaney of Maryland.

But by many accounts, it was Mayor Pete who found the most traction.

While he isn't out-polling former Vice President Joe Biden or Sen. Bernie Sanders, Buttigieg showed he knew how to make the most of an opportunity.

Veteran political expert and chief strategist for the Obama campaigns, David Axelrod, gave Buttigieg high marks and predicted an uptick in his standing among the other candidates.



During his hour onstage, the 37-year-old displayed impressive poise and composure while throwing some shade on the Trump/Pence administration, including his now infamous “cheerleader for the porn star presidency” description of Vice President Mike Pence.

The former Navy intelligence officer and Afghanistan war veteran also took aim at Donald Trump’s National Security Advisor, John Bolton, who has defended the invasion of Iraq for years.

Referencing Bolton’s suggestion that the U.S. use military force in the current conflict in Venezuela, Buttigieg replied, “I don’t understand how somebody leading us into the Iraq War is allowed near that situation.”

He also addressed some issues specific to the LGBTQ community.

The two-term mayor reaffirmed his support for the Equality Act, which would bring uniform civil rights protections to LGBTQs across the nation by adding sexual orientation and gender identity to existing civil righs laws.

He also called for an end to the “war on trans Americans.”

“For a transgender teen to get the signal from the White House that the highest officials in the land can’t tell the difference between her and a predator and make it harder for her to go to the bathroom shows you just how out of whack the climate is in our country right now. We've got to end the war on trans Americans and we need a federal Equality Act that would say that you cannot be fired just because of who you are or just because you love.”



There was also a fairly innocuous but human moment that occurred when CNN’s Jake Tapper tried to clarify how to pronounce the mayor’s last name.

Noting that Buttigieg’s husband has indicated a slightly different pronunciation (“I don’t want to get in the middle of a marital squabble, but…”), Tapper asked the mayor for the definitive answer.

Buttigieg said his name quickly (which sounded like ‘Booda-judge’) but added that either option worked, and at home, he just goes by "Mayor Pete."

The day when reporters blithely ask a presidential candidate about daily interactions with his husband has come.



Clearly sensing the appearance had gone well, Buttigieg was the only participant in the town hall to make a direct appeal from the stage for donations to his campaign.

According to CNN, Buttigieg had the single biggest fundraising day of his 2020 campaign after his appearance raising more than $600,000 from over 22,200 donations in the 24 hours after the event.

Das „All" in „All-Inclusive" hat möglicherweise mehr Ausnahmen, als ihr denkt. Getränke, Wlan und Strandaktivitäten sind nur einige Beispiele dafür, wie sich versteckte Gebühren in Urlaubspakete einschleichen können.

Das All-Inclusive-Modell, das in den 1950er-Jahren von der Club-Med-Hotelkette konzipiert wurde, gilt jetzt sowohl für Skigebiete in den Bergen als auch für Inselziele. Darüber hinaus bringen Kreuzfahrtschiffe häufig Passagiere zu tropischen Standorten und bieten selbst All-Inclusive-Pakete an.

Während einige Luxusorte Pakete anbieten, die auf die individuellen Interessen ihrer Gäste zugeschnitten sind, ist es normalerweise günstiger, den niedrigsten Zimmerpreis zu buchen und für das eigene Abendessen zu zahlen. Ein Undercover-Test von NBC News Today zeigte, dass die Gäste mit der Pay-as-you-go-Praxis mehr als 450 Euro einsparen konnten.

Klickt euch durch die Slideshow, um zu sehen, in welchen All-Inclusive-Resorts euch lange Warteschlangen vor karibischen Buffets oder Skiliften den Urlaub vermiesen können.
