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 | 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,' 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 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.

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' --"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 | 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.

"No portion of this fee is optional as students are required to participate in all aspects of the program."

Korea tested mid-range missile, not ICBM | 09 July 2017 | Russia has provided evidence to the United Nations indicating that North Korea's latest missile launch on July 4th tested an intermediate range rocket, despite US insistence that it was an intercontinental ballistic missile.

Federal judge strikes down Utah's 'ag-gag' law as unconstitutional | 08 July 2017 | A federal judge on Friday struck down Utah's "ag-gag" law, siding with animal-rights activists that the statute -- which prohibits unauthorized filming of agricultural operations -- violates free-speech rights.
