Pennsylvania Court Issues New Congressional Map

Pennsylvania Court Issues New Congressional Map | 19 Feb 2018 | The Pennsylvania Supreme Court is imposing a new congressional district map for the state's 2018 elections, meeting its deadline to do so and likely setting up a challenge from Republicans. Monday's order means a new map is to take effect in the May 15 primary. Republican lawmakers are expected to quickly challenge it in federal court, arguing legislatures and governors, not courts, have the constitutional responsibility to draw congressional maps. If it stands, the revised map is almost certain to improve Democrats' chances in more seats this year.

Called "March for our lives," the demonstration in Washington is to be on March 24, according to 11th-grader Cameron Kasky, and four of his classmates who were interviewed along with him. [Who is funding/backing these national protests?]

Labor Board Rules Google's Firing of James Damore Was Legal

Labor Board Rules Google's Firing of James Damore Was Legal | 16 Feb 2018 | Google did not violate federal labor law when it fired James Damore, a lawyer for the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) concluded in a lightly-redacted memo made public Thursday. The former senior software engineer was fired from Google in August after internally circulating a ten-page memo arguing in part that women are not as biologically suited for coding jobs as men. After he was terminated, Damore filed a complaint with the NLRB, arguing that Google had violated his right to participate in protected activity, namely addressing problems in his workplace...Damore dropped the NLRB complaint last month to instead focus on a class action lawsuit he and another former Google employee brought against the company accusing it of discriminating against white, male, and conservative employees.

Ex-CIA operative says US has long meddled in elections, but it's OK since they are 'good cops'

Ex-CIA operative says US has long meddled in elections, but it's OK since they are 'good cops' | 18 Feb 2018 | As Russians are indicted over "election meddling," former CIA officers say the US has been interfering in foreign elections for decades and "hopefully" will keep doing so because it has the moral high ground. In an article published in the New York Times on Saturday, former CIA officers and several researchers, who have been studying covert US intelligence operations for years, say that the while methods allegedly used by Russians to meddle into the US elections might slightly differ from the old school CIA operations overseas, there is nothing in the allegations against Russians that Americans haven't done themselves. "If you ask an intelligence officer, did the Russians break the rules or do something bizarre, the answer is no, not at all," retired CIA veteran Steven Hall told the NYT. Hall, who left his job as CIA Chief of Russian Operations in 2015 after 30 years of service, noted that the US has never shunned attempting to meddle in other countries' elections. Saying that the CIA had "absolutely" engaged in such operations in the past, Hall added that he hopes "we keep doing it."

Trump says FBI missed Florida shooter 'signals' spending 'too much time trying to prove Russian collusion'

Trump says FBI missed Florida shooter 'signals' spending 'too much time trying to prove Russian collusion' | 17 Feb 2018 | President Trump late Saturday suggested the FBI could have stopped the shooter who killed 17 people and injured 14 others at a High School this week if they spent less time working on the Russia investigation. "Very sad that the FBI missed all of the many signals sent out by the Florida school shooter. This is not acceptable. They are spending too much time trying to prove Russian collusion with the Trump campaign - there is no collusion. Get back to the basics and make us all proud!" Trump tweeted. His comment comes after the FBI said Friday that it had failed to follow "protocols" when it received a tip earlier this year about 19-year old Nikolas Cruz, the alleged shooter who went on a rampage at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla on Wednesday.

"Under established protocols, the information provided by the caller should have been assessed as a potential threat to life," the FBI statement said. "We have determined that these protocols were not followed for the information received by the PAL on Jan. 5."

'Absurd' meddling claims and indictment of Russians show new US policy - Russian FM spokesperson

'Absurd' meddling claims and indictment of Russians show new US policy - Russian FM spokesperson | 16 Feb 2018 | US indictment of 13 Russian nationals and three entities over alleged meddling in American elections in 2016 has been labelled absurd by the Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson, Maria Zakharova. "Turns out, there've been 13 people, in the opinion of the US Justice Department. 13 people interfered in the US elections? 13 against billions budgets of special agencies? Against intelligence and counterespionage, against the newest technologies? Absurd? - Yes." Zakharova said in a Facebook post. The indictment, however, is the "modern American political reality," Zakharova added, jokingly suggesting that the number 13 was picked due to its negative associations.

US indicts 13 Russians for 2016 election meddling, but 'no allegations' they influenced outcome | 16 Feb 2018 | A US federal grand jury has indicted 13 Russian nationals and three Russian entities accused of interfering with US elections and political processes. However, there are "no allegations" they influenced the 2016 election. The indictment accuses the defendants of "supporting the presidential campaign of then-candidate Donald J. Trump...and disparaging Hillary Clinton." It also claims the defendants staged political rallies and bought political advertising while posing as grassroots entities. The document says an organization known as the Internet Research Agency "sought, in part, to conduct what it called 'information warfare against the United States of America' through fictitious US personas on social media platforms and other Internet-based media."

Did all of the cameras 'malfunction,' as they did during the 7/7 Tube attacks in London?]

Court rules Energy Dept. must implement Obama efficiency rules

Court rules Energy Dept. must implement Obama efficiency rules | 15 Feb 2018 | The Trump administration must carry out the implementation of four energy efficiency regulations that it has delayed for more than a year, a federal court ruled Thursday. The Department of Energy (DOE) wrote the rules and made them public in December 2016, under the Obama administration. But when President Trump took office Jan. 20, 2017, his administration took advantage of a 45-day window for error corrections to review the rules and potentially scuttle them. The DOE still has not published the rules in the Federal Register, the final step to implement them.

 

Parkland student: 'Secret Service was present, changed school security policy, several weeks before shooting'

Parkland student: 'Secret Service was present, changed school security policy, several weeks before shooting' | 15 Feb 2018 | According to a senior at Stoneman Douglas High School who appeared on a radio program Thursday, United States Secret Service personnel were on the ground at the school several weeks before the shooting to change security protocols. Jalen Martin [a senior at Stoneman Douglas High School] told the Texas talk show host that a teacher of his had confirmed that indeed the Secret Service was present at the school a few weeks prior. The student's testimony dovetails with buried reports that a fire drill and an active shooter drill were, in fact, already scheduled for Valentine's Day. Martin said there had already been one fire drill earlier Wednesday morning before the alarm went off for a second time which prompted the principal to announce over the loudspeaker for all students to evacuate.

Florida High School Shooting

Florida High School Shooting | 15 Feb 2018 | When students were evacuated from the Parkland Florida high school, some thought it was part of the day's drill. Youths interviewed after the incident appeared older than high school students. They repeated the same talking points. Before and during the shooting, fire alarms occurred. Students said they were prepped for this type incident weeks earlier. Why? Two ambulances on the scene had no bodies in them. An unverified video showed men loading weapons on a truck near the school. Most disturbing, one student said she was speaking to [suspect Nikolas] Cruz when she heard gunshots elsewhere in the school. She didn't see a gun in Cruz's possession. He was accused of using an AR-15 semiautomatic rifle with multiple magazines - not easily concealed beneath clothing...

Second judge rules against Trump administration on ending DACA

Second judge rules against Trump administration on ending DACA | 13 Feb 2018 | For the second time in as many months, a federal judge has barred the Trump administration from ending the Obama-era DACA program next month.

Last month, U.S. District Judge William Alsup in San Francisco ruled that DACA must remain in place while litigation surrounding the program is ongoing. The U.S. Supreme Court is currently considering whether to take up the Trump administration's appeal of that ruling.
