Australian woman shot in Minneapolis called twice to report an assault

Australian woman shot in Minneapolis called twice to report an assault | 19 July 2017 | Shortly before she was fatally shot by a Minneapolis police officer, Justine Damond made two 911 calls to help a nearby woman she thought was possibly being sexually assaulted, according to transcripts released on Wednesday by police. The death of Australian native Damond from a single gunshot has sparked outrage among family members and the public, and led Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull to call it "shocking" and "inexplicable." In the 911 calls, Damond reported hearing sounds of a woman screaming.

Sen. John McCain has brain cancer, aggressive tumor surgically removed | 19 July 2017 | Sen. John McCain, 80, has been diagnosed with a primary glioblastoma, a type of brain tumor, Mayo Clinic doctors directly involved in the senator's care told CNN exclusively. The senator underwent surgery to remove a blood clot on Friday at Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix. Lab results from that surgery confirmed the presence of brain cancer associated with the blood clot. Glioblastoma is a particularly aggressive tumor that forms in the tissue of the brain and spinal cord, according to the American Brain Tumor Association.

Donald Trump Jr., Paul Manafort called to testify before Senate Judiciary Committee

Donald Trump Jr., Paul Manafort called to testify before Senate Judiciary Committee | 19 July 2017 | Donald Trump Jr. has been called to testify next week before the Senate Judiciary Committee about Russia's [alleged] attempted meddling in the presidential race, according to an advisory from the committee. The president's son has been in the [fake] news over his June 2016 meeting with a Russian attorney over possible damaging information on Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Democrats have pointed to the meeting to argue collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. The Trump campaign has denied the accusation.

Trump ends covert CIA program to arm anti-Assad 'rebels' in Syria

Trump ends covert CIA program to arm anti-Assad 'rebels' in Syria | 19 July 2017 | President Trump has decided to end the CIA's covert program to arm and train moderate Syrian rebels terrorists battling the government of Bashar al-Assad, a move long sought by Russia, according to U.S. officials. The program was a central plank of a [disastrous] policy begun by the Obama administration in 2013 to put pressure on Assad to step aside, but even its backers have questioned its efficacy since Russia deployed forces in Syria two years later. Officials said the phasing out of the secret program reflects Trump's interest in finding ways to work with Russia, which saw the anti-Assad program as an assault on its interests. The shuttering of the program is also an acknowledgment of Washington's limited leverage and desire to remove Assad from power.

Student who graded his ex-girlfriend's misspelled apology note a D then tweeted it is suspended for cyber bullying

Student who graded his ex-girlfriend's misspelled apology note a D then tweeted it is suspended for cyber bullying - even though she is NOT studying at the same college | 19 July 2017 | A University of Central Florida student who graded his ex's misspelled apology note then tweeted it, has been suspended for cyber bullying. Nick Lutz received the letter from his former flame earlier this year, apologizing for her behaviour during the relationship. But he took the ultimate revenge by picking up on the mistakes in the letter in red pen and sharing it on Twitter. The tweets of the note, which he graded as a D for repetition and bad handwriting, quickly went viral, prompting his ex to file cyberbullying claim. While prosecutors never pursued the charges, Lutz says he has been suspended from his school - despite the fact that his former girlfriend is not a student there.

GOP effort to repeal ObamaCare is already dead

GOP effort to repeal ObamaCare is already dead | 18 July 2017 | A last-ditch plan by Senate Republicans to repeal ObamaCare with a two-year delay in implementing a replacement now appears dead. Three GOP senators -- Susan Collins of Maine, Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska -- said Tuesday they won't support any plan that gets rid of ObamaCare without a replacement in place. The repeal-only strategy was the latest attempt by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to roll back President Barack Obama's health care plan.

Trump to nominate Jon Huntsman as Russia ambassador

Trump to nominate Jon Huntsman as Russia ambassador | 18 July 2017 | President Donald Trump will nominate [useless eater] Jon Huntsman, an envoy to China under former Democratic President Barack Obama, as U.S. ambassador to Russia in an announcement expected later on Tuesday, the White House said. The job requires confirmation by the U.S. Senate...Reports in March that Huntsman would get the Moscow envoy post were greeted with mixed reviews in Moscow, with one politician saying he was "not a dove" and the Kremlin saying it would welcome anyone who was a "convinced proponent" of establishing a dialogue with Russia.

Heartwarming video shows the moment kind lobstermen free a helpless seal pup trapped in fishing nets off Maine coast

Heartwarming video shows the moment kind lobstermen free a helpless seal pup trapped in fishing nets off the coast of Maine | 18 July 2017 | Two lobstermen in Maine earned a name for themselves as harbor heroes after a video was posted to social media showing the pair rescuing a baby seal tangled in a rope of plastic fishing nets. Jeremy Willey and Jeffrey Door spotted the marine mammal offshore over the weekend roughly 10-12 miles beneath Matinicus Rock and 25 miles from Owls Head, according to WCSH-TV. The men hauled the pup aboard the boat shortly after, where they began cutting apart the nets with a knife.

Cop who killed Justine Damond was already under investigation for 'assault and battery' of another woman

Cop who killed Justine Damond was already under investigation for 'assault and battery' of another woman - as chilling audio captures Australian victim's last moments | 17 July 2017 | A rookie police officer who shot dead an Australian woman outside of her Minnesota home was already under investigation for 'violently' forcing a woman to hospital, court documents allege. Mohamed Noor reached over and shot [holistic doctor] Justine Damond, 40, multiple times from the passenger seat of his squad car while she spoke to his colleague on the drivers side in a back alley behind her upscale Minneapolis home. Both officers' bodycams were off and the squad car camera not recording, but an audio exchange between dispatch and the officers involved captures the chilling moments directly after she was killed at around 11.30pm on Saturday...Noor, who joined the Minneapolis Police in March 2015, has reportedly had three complaints made against him in two years - including a lawsuit. Two are from 2017 and one from 2016 is closed and according to Lou Raguse of Kare 11 is marked 'not to be made public'. The lawsuit stems from a police call on May 25, 2017, when Noor and two other officers took a woman to hospital and she claimed that they carried out false imprisonment, assault and battery.

Holistic healer, Dr. Justine Damond, killed by police in Minneapolis

'Holistic Healers Death Toll' surpasses 60: Holistic healer, Dr. Justine Damond, killed by police in Minneapolis | 16 July 2017 | On Saturday night, Dr. Justine Damond, 40, a well known Australian healer and former veterinarian from Sydney, was shot 3 times by police from their car with a rolled down window (some say right through the door) while standing outside at her own home in her pajamas. The police were there because she had just called 911 to report a disturbance she heard in the alley way out back. The alley was WELL LIT with a combination of lights from neighbors' garages and city lighting so she could be seen clearly, say residents...The police who arrived (including the one who shot her) had their cameras turned off. Political leaders are asking why...We've lost so many holistic healers and doctors in just two short years.

2 more senators oppose health bill in apparent body blow to GOP effort to replace Obamacare

2 more senators oppose health bill in apparent body blow to GOP effort to replace Obamacare | 17 July 2017 | Two more Republican senators announced their opposition to the GOP health care bill Monday night, leaving the party leadership in the Senate short of votes to bring the legislation to the floor for a vote. In a pair of identical tweets, Sens. Jerry Moran of Kansas and Mike Lee of Utah announced they would vote against a procedural measure needed to advance the health care bill to the floor for consideration. Lee and Moran's simultaneous announcements delivered a apparent body blow to the bill, which would have required the support of at least 50 of the Senate's 52 Republicans. Two other Republicans, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Susan Collins (R-Me.) had already announced their opposition.

Radioactive waste from Fukushima nuclear power plant disaster to be dumped in sea

Radioactive waste from Fukushima nuclear power plant disaster to be dumped in sea | 15 July 2017 | Water tainted with tritium, a radioactive form of hydrogen, is to be released into the Pacific Ocean, says the head of the company responsible for the Fukushima clean-up operation. There are around 580 of barrels containing the radioactive water which was used to cool the nuclear plant's damaged reactors. Local residents are furious at plans to release the radioactive tritium from the 2011 Fukushima nuclear plant, which suffered a triple meltdown, into the sea. "The decision has already been made," said Takashi Kawamura, chairman of the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO).

McCain's Surgery May Be More Serious Than Thought, Experts Say

McCain's Surgery May Be More Serious Than Thought, Experts Say | 16 July 2017 | The condition for which Senator John McCain had surgery on Friday may be more serious than initial descriptions have implied, and it may delay his return to Washington by at least a week or two, medical experts said on Sunday. The Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, has already announced that votes on a bill to dismantle the Affordable Care Act will not begin until Mr. McCain's return. A statement released by Mr. McCain's office on Saturday had suggested that he would be in Arizona recovering for just this week, but neurosurgeons interviewed said the typical recovery period could be longer.

Six countries demand Fifa strips 'base of terrorism' Qatar of 2022 World Cup

Six countries demand Fifa strips 'base of terrorism' Qatar of 2022 World Cup | 15 July 2017 | The six Arab countries who last month cut ties with Qatar are reported to have written to world soccer's governing body Fifa to demand it be stripped of hosting the 2022 World Cup because they consider the Gulf state to be a "base of terrorism". Fifa president Gianni Infantino told Swiss website The Local that Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Mauritania, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt had collectively written to Fifa asking it to remove Qatar as hosts under Article 85 of the Fifa Code, which allows for such action in the case of emergency. "The countries warned Fifa of the risks threatening fan and player security in a country that is 'the base and the castle of terrorism'," The Local quoted Infantino as saying.

U.S. cities on alert for vehicles as weapons of terrorism

U.S. cities on alert for vehicles as weapons of terrorism | 14 July 2017 | Last month, attackers using a vehicle and knives killed eight people and wounded dozens more on London Bridge...And in May, a man driving in New York's Times Square plowed into a crowd during lunchtime, killing one person and injuring 22. While authorities said the incident was not terrorism, Islamic State, inspired by the crash, used it to warn that more attacks on the nation's largest city and popular tourist destination would follow. As terrorists overseas increasingly turn to vehicles as weapons, cities across the United States, concerned such attacks could happen here, are ramping up security in public spaces to protect areas with heavy pedestrian traffic.

Trump asks Supreme Court to block travel ban ruling

Trump asks Supreme Court to block travel ban ruling | 14 July 2017 | The U.S. Justice Department on Friday asked the Supreme Court to block a judge's ruling that prevented President Donald Trump's travel ban from being applied to grandparents of U.S. citizens and refugees already being processed by resettlement agencies. In a court filing, the administration asked the justices to overturn Thursday's decision by a U.S. district judge in Hawaii, which limited the scope of the administration's temporary ban on refugees and travelers from six Muslim-majority countries.

Sen. Joe Donnelly (D-IN) sells stock in family company after outsourcing criticism

Sen. Joe Donnelly (D-IN) sells stock in family company after outsourcing criticism | 14 July 2017 | Sen. Joe Donnelly (D-IN) is selling his stock in a family business amid criticism that he profits from Mexican labor, something he frequently rails against. An Associated Press story published Thursday revealed that an arts and crafts business Donnelly's family has owned for generations capitalizes on low-paid foreign labor. For more than a year, Stewart Superior Corp. and its subsidiaries have been shipping thousands of pounds of raw materials to Mexico, where the company has a factory that produces ink pads and other supplies, according to customs records from Panjiva Inc., which tracks American imports and exports. The finished products are then transported back to a company facility in California, the records show.

Lawyer for U.S. Army sergeant accused of terrorism suggests entrapment

Lawyer for U.S. Army sergeant accused of terrorism suggests entrapment | 14 July 2017 | The lawyer for a U.S. Army sergeant charged in Hawaii with trying to provide material support to Islamic State extremists said on Thursday his client suffers from mental illness that FBI agents exploited in a "sting" operation leading to his arrest. Questions about Ikaika Erik Kang's state of mind and the possibility of entrapment were raised by defense lawyer Birney Bervar in remarks to reporters after his client was ordered to remain in jail without bond. Bervar said he believed Kang was suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder or some other mental problem that the Army failed to address properly after Kang returned from deployments to Iraq in 2011 and Afghanistan in 2014.

TEPCO set to release radioactive tritium from Fukushima nuclear plant into Pacific Ocean

TEPCO set to release radioactive tritium from Fukushima nuclear plant into Pacific Ocean | 14 July 2017 | Local residents and environmental groups have condemned a[n insane] plan by Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) to release radioactive tritium from the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant into the Pacific Ocean...The tritium is building up in water that has been used to cool three reactors that suffered fuel melt-downs after cooling equipment was destroyed in March 2011. Around 770,000 tons of highly radioactive water is being stored in 580 tanks at the site. Fishermen who operate in waters off the plant say any release of radioactive material will devastate an industry that is still struggling to recover from the initial nuclear disaster.

New Senate GOP health care bill teeters on the brink

New Senate GOP health care bill teeters on the brink | 13 July 2017 | Republican leaders unveiled a new health care bill Thursday in their increasingly desperate effort to deliver on seven years of promises to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, aslo called Obamacare. They immediately lost two key Senate votes, leaving none to spare as the party's own divisions put its top campaign pledge in serious jeopardy. The reworked bill McConnell presented to fellow Republicans aims to win conservatives' support by letting insurers sell low-cost, skimpy policies. At the same time, he seeks to placate hesitant moderates by adding billions to combat opioid abuse and help consumers with skyrocketing insurance costs.

Peter W. Smith, GOP operative who sought Clinton's emails from hackers, has 'committed suicide'

Peter W. Smith, GOP operative who sought Clinton's emails from hackers, has 'committed suicide,' records show | 13 July 2017 | Republican donor and operative from Chicago's North Shore who said he had tried to obtain Hillary Clinton's missing emails from Russian hackers [allegedly] killed himself in a Minnesota hotel room days after talking to The Wall Street Journal about his efforts, public records show. In a room at a Rochester hotel used almost exclusively by Mayo Clinic patients and relatives, Peter W. Smith, 81, left a carefully prepared file of documents, which includes a statement police called a suicide note in which he said he was in ill health and a life insurance policy was expiring...At the time, the newspaper reported Smith's May 14 death came about 10 days after he granted the interview. Mystery shrouded how and where he had died, but the lead reporter on the stories said on a podcast he had no reason to believe the death was the result of foul play and that Smith likely had died of natural causes.

Ex-DNC chair Wasserman Schulz launches bid to strip Jared of security clearance after leaving Dem servers open to hacking (and rigging primary)

Ex-DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schulz launches bid to strip Jared of security clearance after leaving the Democratic servers open to hacking (and rigging primary) | 13 July 2017 | Former Democratic National Committee chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz introduced amendments that would seek to strip Donald Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner of his security clearance. The former DNC chair and Florida Democrat ran the organization when it got hacked in an intrusion that the intelligence community concluded was [allegedly] orchestrated by the Kremlin. The disclosures that ensued proved embarrassing to Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, and ultimately led to Wasserman Schultz stepping down from her post. In the aftermath of the election, it was revealed that the DNC turned down offers of assistance form the FBI and the Homeland Security Department.

Jimmy Carter hospitalized for dehydration during Habitat build | 13 July 2017 | Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter was hospitalized Thursday in Canada after suffering dehydration while working at a build site for Habitat for Humanity.

Several of the evacuees are tearful children who were staying on campus for summer camp programs.

Obama DOJ let Russian lawyer into US before she met with Trump team

Obama DOJ let Russian lawyer into US before she met with Trump team | 12 July 2017 | The Russian lawyer who penetrated Donald Trump’s inner circle was initially cleared into the United States by the Justice Department under "extraordinary circumstances" before she embarked on a lobbying campaign last year that ensnared the president's eldest son, members of Congress, journalists and State Department officials, according to court and Justice Department documents and interviews. This revelation means it was the Obama Justice Department that enabled the newest and most intriguing figure in the Russia-Trump investigation to enter the country without a visa. Later, a series of events between an intermediary for the attorney and the Trump campaign ultimately led to the controversy surrounding the president's eldest son.

DNC coordinated with Ukraine, White House says, amid Trump-Russia collusion claims

DNC coordinated with Ukraine, White House says, amid Trump-Russia collusion claims | 12 July 2017 | As Russian collusion accusations continue to surround the Trump administration, White House deputy press secretary Sarah Sanders says the Democratic National Committee (DNC) is actually the guilty party because it coordinated with [the Nazis, terrorists, and sociopaths armed and funded by the US government running] Ukraine. During a Monday press briefing, Sanders was asked whether President Donald Trump was concerned that his son, Donald Trump Jr., held a meeting with a Russian lawyer during the campaign. In response, Sanders said that "Don. Jr. took a very short meeting from which there was absolutely no follow-up," before suggesting that the Democrats were actually the ones who coordinated with a foreign government. "Frankly, I think something that may make sense is looking at the Democrat [sic] National Committee coordinated opposition research directly with the Ukrainian embassy," she said.

Evergreen State College Faculty Demand Resignation of Professor Weinstein for Appearing on 'Tucker Carlson'

Evergreen State College Faculty Demand Resignation of Professor Weinstein for Appearing on 'Tucker Carlson' --"By appearing on Tucker Carlson's Alt-Right TV program, you endangered our students..." --Faculty colleague [nut-job] | 10 July 2017 | Three and a half days after a horde of angry students descended on his classroom berating him and calling for him to be fired, Professor Bret Weinstein found himself in a Seattle television studio being interviewed by Tucker Carlson...And then the call came from Tucker Carlson asking if he would appear on his show as part of a story that was going to be run on the Evergreen situation. Weinstein agreed and the campus rhetoric against him increased exponentially. Now, instead of students calling for him to be fired, many of his faculty colleagues issued heated demands for him to resign.

Iceberg four times the size of London breaks off from Antarctica ice shelf

Iceberg four times the size of London breaks off from Antarctica ice shelf | 12 July 2017 | A trillion-tonne iceberg - one of the largest on record - has broken away from an ice shelf in Antarctica. Researchers have been monitoring a huge crack in the Larsen C Ice Shelf, which had left a vast iceberg more than four times the size of London or a quarter the size of Wales "hanging by a thread". Scientists announced on Wednesday that the rift had finally completed its path through the ice, causing the 2,200 square mile (5,800 square kilometre) iceberg to snap off.

Trump administration picks pro-vaccine CDC director

Trump administration picks pro-vaccine CDC director | 07 July 2017 | After backing candidate Donald Trump last year, anti-vaccine activists may feel betrayed in his administration's latest move to name vaccine advocate Brenda Fitzgerald to run the CDC...Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price named Fitzgerald to the critical post Friday. In numerous public statements, Fitzgerald has supported vaccination. Ahead of the nomination, anti-vaccine group Autism Investigated posted an open letter to President Trump urging him to "withdraw any consideration" for Fitzgerald due to her vaccine stance. In the letter, the website's editor Jake Crosby brought up Trump's campaign promises to look into vaccine safety and pointed out that "many people voted for you this past election" because of those promises. [Not exactly a 'swamp-draining' move, is it? This selection is almost as insane as appointing warmongering sociopath Nikki Haley to be the United States ambassador to the UN.]

'Wild and overblown': Lavrov blasts media hype over Trump Jr. meeting with Russian lawyer

'Wild and overblown': Lavrov blasts media hype over Trump Jr. meeting with Russian lawyer | 12 July 2017 | Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov says he was astonished to learn the US president’s son has been slammed for talking to a Russian lawyer. The minister has lampooned the accusations, saying they were "wild" and making a mountain out of a molehill. "I was amazed to find out that Trump's son is accused of talking to her [Natalia Veselnitskaya]. For me it's basically wild, because when a person talks to a lawyer, what is the threat to anyone?" the top Russian diplomat said. "It is amazing how serious people are making an elephant out of a fly," the minister added while speaking at a news conference with his Belgian counterpart, Didier Deynders, on Wednesday.
