Trump travel ban takes effect to minimal disruption

Trump travel ban takes effect to minimal disruption | 29 June 2017 | A scaled-down version of President Donald Trump’s travel ban took effect at 8 p.m. ET Thursday, with none of the dramatic scenes of protest and chaos that greeted the original version of Trump's executive order five months ago. The Departments of Homeland Security, State and Justice went ahead with the implementation after the Supreme Court partially restored the order earlier this week. The new rules tighten visa policies affecting citizens from six majority Muslim nations: Sudan, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, and Yemen. People from those countries who need new visas will now have to prove a close family relationship or an existing relationship with an entity like a school or business in the United States.

House set to vote on 'Kate's Law' --The administration is engaging in a full court press to support the bills | 29 June 2017 | The House Thursday is expected to pass bills that would hand President Donald Trump key pieces of his immigration agenda, especially efforts targeting sanctuary cities. The bills, "Kate's Law" and the No Sanctuary for Criminals Act, would install harsher penalties for repeat illegal entry to the US, and expand US law on sanctuary cities to pressure localities to cooperate with federal immigration enforcement...Kate's Law is named for Kate Steinle, a young woman in San Francisco who was murdered on a pier on the Embarcadero allegedly by an undocumented immigrant who was a repeat felon and was deported multiple times. Saturday is the two-year anniversary of her death.

'Petya' ransomware attack stems from NSA exploit - Snowden, security experts

'Petya' ransomware attack stems from NSA exploit - Snowden, security experts | 27 June 2017 | The Petya ransomware that spread across the globe Tuesday was made possible thanks to EternalBlue - a hacking tool used by the NSA to exploit a Windows vulnerability it left open for five years, Edward Snowden and security experts have said..."How many times does @NSAGov's development of digital weapons have to result in harm to civil infrastructure before there is accountability?" Snowden tweeted. The NSA's hacking team, Equation Group (or Tailored Access Operations), lost control of its trove of hacking exploits and, last August, a group calling themselves the Shadow Brokers announced it had access to those tools.

There is no evidence that any particularly sensitive or operational systems were breached [but we'll never know, since the corporations who own and operate US nuclear power plants own and operate US media]. The breach was first reported by E&E News, which covers the energy and environment sectors.

Authorities said there were no injuries from Tuesday's attack and that the area was still being surveyed for damages. Villegas said security forces were being deployed to apprehend Perez, who the government of President Nicolas Maduro accused of [and is] working under the instructions of the CIA and the U.S. Embassy in Caracas.

Vote Delayed as Republicans Struggle to Marshal Support for Health Care Bill

Vote Delayed as Republicans Struggle to Marshal Support for Health Care Bill | 27 June 2017 | Facing intransigent Republican opposition, Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the Republican leader, announced on Tuesday that he will delay a vote on his legislation to repeal the Affordable Care Act, dealing President Trump an embarrassing setback on a key part of his agenda. Republican leaders had hoped to take a page from the playbook used to get a bill over the line in the House, appeasing the most conservative members of their conference while pressuring moderates to fall in line with fewer concessions. But as opposition mounted in both camps, even against a vote just to take up the bill, Mr. McConnell decided he would delay consideration until after the Senate's week-long July 4 recess.

Senate Health Bill in Peril as C.B.O. Predicts 22 Million More Uninsured

Senate Health Bill in Peril as C.B.O. Predicts 22 Million More Uninsured | 26 June 2017 | The Senate bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act was edging toward collapse on Monday after the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office said it would increase the number of people without health insurance by 22 million by 2026. Two Republicans, Senators Susan Collins of Maine and Rand Paul of Kentucky, said Monday that they would vote against even debating the health care bill, joining Senator Dean Heller of Nevada, who made the same pledge on Friday. Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin hinted that he, too, would probably oppose taking up the bill on a procedural vote expected as early as Tuesday, meaning a collapse could be imminent. "It's worse to pass a bad bill than pass no bill," Mr. Paul told reporters.

'Possible active shooter' reported at Army's Redstone Arsenal | 27 June 2017 | A lockdown still is in effect for one Redstone Arsenal building where a possible shooter had been reported Tuesday morning, but an all-clear has been announced for everywhere else at the northern Alabama army post, facility spokeswoman Kim Hanson said.

3 CNN Journalists Resign After Retracted Story on Trump Ally

3 CNN Journalists Resign After Retracted Story on Trump Ally | 26 June 2017 | Three prominent journalists at CNN resigned on Monday after the cable news network was forced to retract and apologize for a story on its website involving a close ally of President Trump. The article -- linking Anthony Scaramucci, a hedge-fund manager and Trump confidant, to a Russian investment fund supposedly being investigated by the Senate -- was removed from CNN.com late last week after the network decided it could not fully stand by its reporting. The resignations are a black eye at a sensitive moment for the news organization, which has emerged as a regular target of Mr. Trump and his supporters. The president relishes dismissing the network’s coverage as “fake news" [which, of course, it is], and his closest advisers have accused the channel of harboring a bias against Mr. Trump.

Multiple U.S. and Japanese investigations are under way into how the guided missile destroyer USS Fitzgerald and the much larger ACX Crystal container ship collided in clear weather south of Tokyo Bay in the early hours of June 17. In the first detailed account from one of those directly involved, the cargo ship's captain said the ACX Crystal had signaled with flashing lights after the Fitzgerald "suddenly" steamed on to a course to cross its path.

Supreme Court revives Trump travel ban order

Supreme Court revives Trump travel ban order | 26 June 2017 | The Supreme Court on Monday handed a victory to President Donald Trump by allowing his temporary bans on travelers from six Muslim-majority countries and all refugees to go into effect for people with no connection to the United States while agreeing to hear his appeals in the closely watched legal fight. The court, which narrowed the scope of lower court rulings that had completely blocked his March 6 executive order, said it would hear arguments on the legality of one of Trump's signature policies in his first months as president in the court's next term, which starts in October. The justices granted parts of his administration's emergency request to put the order into effect immediately while the legal battle continues.

Durden, who is black, discussed a Memorial Day event held exclusively for black people hosted by a Black Lives Matter group in New York.

Koch network ramps up political spending while trying to push Trump team --Vice President Mike Pence met with Charles Koch the day before a Koch network summit. | 24 June 2017 | The leadership of the Koch brothers' [globalist sociopaths'] network is brushing off its occasionally chilly attitude toward President Donald Trump, trying to nudge the administration in its direction as the group's annual summit began Saturday just after Charles Koch met with Vice President Mike Pence. The network of conservative donors announced Saturday it plans to spend between $300 million and $400 million on politics and policy during the 2018 cycle. [Oh. I thought "Russia" was trying to influence US elections?] Pence has longstanding ties to the Koch network [which is why the media is working 24/7 to impeach Trump], while Charles Koch has been openly critical of the vice president’s boss since the early days of the Republican primary campaign. Through Pence, the group’s allies have established a beachhead in the administration.

The United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, will meet in the Canadian city of Ottawa next week, where they will discuss tactics to combat terrorism and border protection, two senior Australian ministers said. Australia has made it clear it wants tech companies to do much more to give intelligence and law enforcement agencies access to encrypted communications.

North Korea Denies Responsibility in Warmbier's Death, Slams Washington

North Korea Denies Responsibility in Warmbier's Death, Slams Washington | 23 June 2017 | North Korea has denied that it put deceased American student Otto Warmbier through cruel or torturous treatment during his 17-month detention in the country.

"The fact that Warmbier died suddenly in less than a week just after his return to the US in his normal state of health indicators is a mystery to us as well," he said.

How the Senate's Health-Care Bill Would Cause Financial Ruin for People With Preexisting Conditions

How the Senate's Health-Care Bill Would Cause Financial Ruin for People With Preexisting Conditions --This bill will take American healthcare back to the completely broken system before the Affordable Care Act. | 23 June 2017 | ...This is where the new Senate bill makes significant--and dangerous--changes. The bill drives straight through these carefully crafted guardrails. Today, to waive requirements like essential benefits, a state must show that the alternative insurance being provided is "comprehensive," and "will provide coverage and cost-sharing protections against excessive out-of-pocket spending." These careful conditions on quality are removed in the Senate bill, replaced with a bare-minimum requirement that the alternative doesn't increase the federal budget deficit. States will be able to easily waive the requirement to cover Essential Health Benefits, without any careful conditions to ensure the quality and affordability of coverage. As a result, insurers will offer skinny plans with less coverage that falls far short of the needs of those with serious health conditions.
