Add-ons in the Republican tax bill

Add-ons in the Republican tax bill | 02 Dec 2017 | The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act passed in the Senate in the early hours of Saturday now has to be combined with the House version passed in November to make a final law... Drilling the Alaska National Wildlife Refuge: A very non-tax related addition to the Senate bill was squeezed in that would open the Alaska National Wildlife Refuge to drilling. This is a[n insane] goal of Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski, who may have promised her vote for the addition of the provision. Private jet tax break: Possibly the most unappetizing aspect of the bill is the tax break for private jet owners. The provision would exempt aircraft owners from taxes on the "maintenance and support of the aircraft owner's aircraft or flights on the aircraft owner's aircraft." Bad news for Gulf Airlines Foreign airlines such as Qatar Airways, Etihad and Emirates will face corporate tax for landing in US airspace [Good!], ending a tax exemption for the airlines.

Why Flynn's plea is a dead end for 'Russiagate' conspiracy

Why Flynn's plea is a dead end for 'Russiagate' conspiracy | 01 Dec 2017 | President Donald Trump's short-lived national security adviser, Michael Flynn, pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI. Most US media jumped on the plea as proof of Trump's collusion with Russia. Actual documents, however, tell a different story. A court document signed by special counsel Robert Mueller, dated Thursday, specifies two instances of Flynn telling FBI investigators things that were not true. They relate to two conversations he had with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, in December 2016. In the Statement of Offense [!?!] signed by Flynn at his court appearance on Friday, he admitted to acting on instructions from a senior "Presidential Transition Team" (PTT) official, prompting breathless speculation if that was Trump himself, his son-in-law Jared Kushner, or someone else altogether. The one question nobody seems to be asking is, "So what?" [Oh, believe me, I'm asking it!]

Michael Flynn pleads guilty to lying to FBI in Mueller['s deep-state] probe

Michael Flynn pleads guilty to lying to FBI in Mueller['s deep-state] probe | 01 Dec 2017 | Former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn pleaded guilty on Friday in federal court to a charge of making false statements to the FBI about his communications with Russia. A two-page charging document filed Thursday lists two false statements Flynn made about his interactions with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak in late December 2016. It says Flynn falsely claimed that he had not asked Kislyak on Dec. 29 "to refrain from escalating the situation in response to sanctions that the U.S. had imposed against Russia," and that he didn't recall Kislyak telling him Russia had decided to moderate its response as a result of his request. [Why wasn't (unindicted 9/11 co-conspirator) James Comey prosecuted for leaking to the media? General Flynn had a meeting - *so what?*]

Pentagon tried to block independent report on child sex among Afghan forces, Senate office says

Pentagon tried to block independent report on child sex among Afghan forces, Senate office says | 26 Nov 2017 | The Pentagon tried to block an independent assessment of child sex abuse crimes committed by [US-funded] Afghan soldiers and police, instead insisting on the creation of its own report offering a far less authoritative review of human rights violations perpetrated by U.S. allies, according to an aide to Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.). Although the report released Nov. 16 by the Defense Department Inspector General's office (DODIG) reached the grim conclusion that, for years, U.S. personnel have been inadequately trained to report such crimes, a parallel investigation by the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) is thought to contain a much more detailed accounting of the problem's severity. But the results of SIGAR's unreleased inquiry, which was requested by 93 members of Congress in 2015, remains classified at the Pentagon's direction, raising questions about the military's transparency and the extent to which it is complying with laws meant to curb such abuse.

ICE seeks to deport immigrant acquitted in Kate Steinle case

ICE seeks to deport immigrant acquitted in Kate Steinle case | 30 Nov 2017 | U.S. immigration officials announced Thursday that they will seek to deport Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, the undocumented immigrant acquitted earlier in the day of murder in the 2015 shooting death of 32-year-old Kate Steinle in San Francisco. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) released a statement Thursday night blasting San Francisco for not cooperating with federal immigration authorities before the deadly shooting, arguing the city could have prevented Steinle's death. "San Francisco's policy of refusing to honor ICE detainers is a blatant threat to public safety and undermines the rule of law," ICE Deputy Director Tom Homan said in the statement. "This tragedy could have been prevented if San Francisco had simply turned the alien over to ICE, as we requested, instead of releasing him back onto the streets."

Undocumented immigrant acquitted in Kate Steinle murder trial

Undocumented immigrant acquitted in Kate Steinle murder trial | 30 Nov 2017 | A San Francisco jury has acquitted an undocumented immigrant who was charged with the murder of Kate Steinle. Jose Ines Garcia Zarate was acquitted of the murder charge following the 2015 shooting, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. Steinle was fatally wounded while walking the San Francisco waterfront in 2015 by Zarate, who had been deported to Mexico on five previous occasions. She was 32 years old.

US-led coalition acknowledges killing 800+ civilians in Iraq and Syria airstrikes

US-led coalition acknowledges killing 800+ civilians in Iraq and Syria airstrikes | 30 Nov 2017 | At least 800 civilians have been killed by US-led coalition airstrikes in Iraq and Syria since 2014, a coalition report says. It adds that the group holds itself accountable for "unintentional injury or death to civilians." "To date, based on information available, [the coalition] assesses at least 801 civilians have been unintentionally killed by Coalition strikes since the start of Operation Inherent Resolve [in 2014]," Combined Joint Task Force Operation Inherent Resolve (CJTF–OIR) said in statement on Thursday.

5.2 million seniors could see taxes increased by GOP bill - AARP

5.2 million seniors could see taxes increased by GOP bill - AARP | 29 Nov 2017 | Millions of senior citizens could see tax increases under the Senate version of the GOP's tax-reform plan, according to an analysis from the AARP. In an article published Wednesday on the group's website, the AARP's vice president and policy director argue that 1 in 5 seniors, about 6.3 million taxpayers, will see either no change or a tax increase in 2019 under the plan passed by the Senate Budget Committee. Of those individuals, 1.2 million people would get a tax hike. The authors argue that number will jump "more than four times" by 2027 to 5.2 million seniors "as a result of sunsetting the middle-class tax cuts."

House votes to mandate sexual harassment training for members and staff

House votes to mandate sexual harassment training for members and staff | 29 Nov 2017 | The House on Wednesday voted to require annual sexual harassment awareness training for all members and staff amid a push to reform the culture on Capitol Hill. A resolution authored by Rep. Barbara Comstock (R-Va.) passed easily by voice vote, though its passage will not be the hard part for lawmakers seeking to reform the policies to protect Capitol Hill employees from sexual harassment. Comstock's measure requires members and staff to undergo anti-harassment and anti-discrimination training during each session of Congress. Interns and fellows would also have to take the training.

Republicans Clear Major Hurdle as Tax Bill Advances

Republicans Clear Major Hurdle as Tax Bill Advances | 28 Nov 2017 | Senate Republicans took a significant step toward passing a sweeping tax overhaul on Tuesday, with a key panel giving its approval and several wavering senators indicating they would support the tax package, helping clear the way for full Senate consideration later this week. Passage of the tax overhaul, which seemed uncertain on Monday, strengthened considerably on Tuesday after the Senate Budget Committee voted along party lines to advance the plan...Many Republican senators left after protesters disrupted the meeting, chanting, "Kill the bill."

Cancer Researcher Found Dead Following 'Breakthrough' Discovery

Cancer Researcher Found Dead Following 'Breakthrough' Discovery | 28 Nov 2017 | A medical researcher has been found dead after reporting a "breakthrough" discovery in the cure for cancer. 40-year-old Dr. Miguel Crespo's body was found in the bathroom of the Weill Cornell Medical Center on the Upper East Side in New York where he worked after going missing for several hours. Police investigators say they are still trying to piece together how the young doctor had died but say that he most likely committed suicide [Yeah, right!] by taking a drug overdose after they found vomit next to his body in the 8th-floor bathroom and said he had been "foaming at the mouth."

Drones will soon release swarms of sterile male mosquitoes to 'fight' Zika and malaria

Drones will soon release swarms of sterile male mosquitoes to 'fight' Zika and malaria | 27 Nov 2017 | Drones will soon be used in the 'battle against' malaria and other mosquito-borne diseases like Zika. In an experiment to try and crowd out mosquito populations by using sterile male insects that cannot reproduce, researchers are hoping to bring down their reproduction in Latin America. Large swarms of mosquitoes can be dropped from drones, strategically crowding out the other males. When female mosquitoes mate with them, they will not reproduce, eventually bringing down their population, in the process [allegedly] reducing diseases that they spread, the BBC reports. The drones will be developed by WeRobotics and the experiment will be conducted in 2018. [Yes, why not experiment on *yourselves* instead of the public?]

North Korea fires intercontinental ballistic missile

North Korea fires intercontinental ballistic missile | 29 Nov 2017 | North Korea has fired an intercontinental ballistic missile, US military sources have confirmed. The ICBM appears to have been launched from Pyongsong, according to South Korea's joint chiefs of staff, over the sea between South Korea and Japan. President Donald Trump said "we will take care of it" when questioned about the missile launch. A US government source confirmed the launch, which was detected at 6.30pm GMT. The Pentagon says there is no threat to the USA or its allies.

The decision comes in spite of long-running opposition to atomic activity in the country.

Senate Intel chief sees warrantless surveillance powers in must-pass legislation

Senate Intel chief sees warrantless surveillance powers in must-pass legislation | 28 Nov 2017 | A bill renewing a powerful surveillance authority will "likely" be rolled into must-pass legislation at the end of the year, rather than voted on as a stand-alone measure, Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr said Tuesday. The North Carolina Republican, whose committee advanced the bill 12-3 in October, did not specify what the vehicle could be, though Congress must approve legislation by Dec. 8 to keep the government open...Known as Section 702 of a package of foreign intelligence amendments passed in 2008, it allows the National Security Agency (NSA) to collect the texts and emails of foreigners abroad without an individualized warrant -- even when the subjects communicate with Americans in the U.S. Federal investigators can then search those communications -- again without a warrant -- in what critics say is a violation of Americans' Fourth Amendment protections.

North Korea fires ballistic missile - report

North Korea fires ballistic missile - report | 28 Nov 2017 | North Korea has fired a ballistic missile, according to South Korean news agency and a US government source. "North Korea launched an unidentified ballistic missile eastward from the vicinity of Pyongsong, South Pyongan Province, at dawn today," the Joint Chiefs of Staff said, as cited by Yonhap news agency. South Korea and the US were analysing the missile's trajectory, it added. A US government source has confirmed the North Korean missile launch to Reuters without providing any further details.

Russian official warns of potential 'apocalyptic' outcome from North Korea | 28 Nov 2017 | One senior Russian official warns of an "apocalyptic" scenario that is taking form on the Korean Peninsula. On Monday, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Igor Morgulov said, in the hope of a peaceful resolution, "I hope that a common sense, pragmatism and an instinct of self-preservation would prevail among our partners to exclude such negative scenario," according to Russian state-run [as opposed to globalist-run aka 99% of US 'news' agencies] news agency Tass.

Senate GOP tax bill hurts the poor more than originally thought, CBO finds | 26 Nov 2017 |The Senate Republican tax plan gives substantial tax cuts and benefits to Americans earning more than $100,000 a year, while the nation's poorest would be worse off, according to report released Sunday by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office. Republicans are aiming to have the full Senate vote on the tax plan as early as this week, but the new CBO analysis showing large, harmful effects on the poor may complicate those plans...By 2019, Americans earning less than $30,000 a year would be worse off under the Senate bill, CBO found. By 2021, Americans earning $40,000 or less would be net losers, and by 2027, most people earning less than $75,000 a year would be worse off.

In a speech Emmanuel Macron said it was unacceptable for France to be "one of those countries where women live in fear" of "verbal violence against women". “Gender-based insults will be punishable by law. Offenders will face a deterrent fine,” Mr Macron said. [Macron: Why is France an ally of Saudi Arabia, you hypocritical sack of globalist sh*t?]

Japan is poised to flood the Pacific Ocean with one million tons of radioactive water contaminated by the Fukushima nuclear power plant

Japan is poised to flood the Pacific Ocean with one million tons of radioactive water contaminated by the Fukushima nuclear power plant --The amount of radioactive water at Fukushima is still growing, by 150 tons a day. | 26 Nov 2017 | The Japanese government is being urged by experts to gradually release radioactive water in to the Pacific Ocean more than six years after a tsunami overwhelmed the Fukushima nuclear power plant. The water is stored on site in around 900 large and densely packed tanks and could spill should another major disaster strike. The government has been urged to release the water into the ocean as all the radioactive elements of the water except tritium have [*allegedly*] been removed through treatment. But if the tank breaks, the contents may not be able to be controlled.

They positioned themselves at the building's entrances and the front of the mosque shortly before the massive gunfire and loud explosions rang out.

They barged in carrying automatic weapons and the Islamic State flag.

Church of Sweden to stop referring to God as 'he' or 'Lord'

Church of Sweden to stop referring to God as 'he' or 'Lord' --Head of largest Swedish Christian church says God is beyond human gender determination | 24 Nov 2017 | The Church of Sweden is urging its clergy to use gender-neutral language when referring to the supreme deity, refraining from using terms such as "Lord" and "he" in favour of the less specific "God." The move is one of several taken by the national Evangelical Lutheran church in updating a 31-year-old handbook setting out how services should be conducted in terms of language, liturgy, hymns and other aspects...The change was met with criticism, however. Christer Pahlmblad, an associate theology professor at Sweden's Lund University, told the Kristeligt Dagblad newspaper in Denmark that the move was "undermining the doctrine of the Trinity and the community with the other Christian churches".
