Ohio student suspended for staying in class during walkouts | 16 March 2018 | An Ohio high school student says he tried to remain nonpolitical during [the U.S. Deep State/corporate-funded] school walkouts over gun violence and was suspended for a day because he stayed in a classroom instead of joining protests or the alternative, a study hall. Hilliard senior Jacob Shoemaker says school isn't the place for politics, and he wasn't taking sides Wednesday...Scott Shoemaker says some people thought his son was suspended for walking out, and angry comments accumulated, including some that mistook Scott for the principal. He says he also got a couple death threats and had to consider switching phone numbers.

Paul Manafort asks judge to dismiss criminal charges against him

Paul Manafort asks judge to dismiss criminal charges against him | 15 March 2018 | Paul Manafort has asked a federal judge in DC to dismiss the five criminal charges against him, arguing that special counsel Robert Mueller had no right to indict him for work done before he joined the Trump campaign as chairman in 2016. "Those issues simply have no connection to the alleged coordination with the Russian government or the 2016 presidential election," Manafort's lawyer wrote in a motion to dismiss the case filed Wednesday. Though Manafort's team acknowledged that the Justice Department had told Mueller to prosecute any criminal action he discovers while investigating possible Russian collusion, "It is a blank check the special counsel has cashed, repeatedly," Manafort's filing said.

Now Inclusion Means Exclusion

Now Inclusion Means Exclusion | 14 March 2018 | Inclusion is merely the new soft, cottony term for marginalizing, shutting down, and kicking out the disfavored...The question on everyone's mind was: How can it be that "free speech" and "inclusion" are opposites? The whole point of the First Amendment, in its clauses on both religion and expression, is to protect the right to think and express unpopular, minority, even radical views...All over the country, especially at schools, "inclusion" is being used to push people and ideas out the door. At NYU, after professor of liberal studies [CLG Founder] Michael Rectenwald mocked hypersensitivity about Halloween costumes, he was castigated by the department's Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Working Group, then pushed the same day to go on sudden leave in mid-semester.

The walkouts, which came 10 days before a march on Washington that could draw hundreds of thousands of students to the nation's capital, are unprecedented in recent American history, not seen in size or scope since student protests of the Vietnam War in the late 1960s. [Yes, the difference being the students in the 1960s were protesting the U.S. Deep State/corporate war machine; the snowflakes in the 2010s are protesting at the behest of the U.S. Deep State/corporate war machine. --LRP]

Mueller witness is convicted pedophile - AP

Mueller witness is convicted pedophile - AP | 15 March 2018 | How did George Nader -- Lebanese-American businessman, globe-trotting "fixer," convicted child molester -- get caught up in special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation? The answer, it seems, can be found in the shadows, where Nader has long operated. His long history included intrepid back-channel mediation between Israel and Arab countries -- and a 15-year-old pedophilia conviction in Europe that has not been previously reported.

UK blocks Russia's draft UN Security Council statement on Skripal poisoning case

UK blocks Russia's draft UN Security Council statement on Skripal poisoning case | 15 March 2018 | The UK has blocked a UN Security Council statement drafted by Russia, which called for an "urgent and civilized" investigation into the poisoning of former double agent Sergei Skripal in Salisbury. "The Russia-proposed March 14 project of a short and fact-based UNSC press statement calling for an urgent and civilized investigation into a resonant chemical incident in Britain in line with OPCW standards was crudely blocked by this country's representatives under a politicized pretext," Russian UN mission spokesman Fedor Strzhizhovskiy said. The proposed draft, unlike earlier statements by the UK and the US, did not assign blame for the incident, instead, it urged "all member states concerned to consult and cooperate" in the investigation as prescribed by the Chemical Weapons Convention.

Russian envoy to UN asks about Salisbury case, says Moscow ready for open probe

Russian envoy to UN asks about Salisbury case, says Moscow ready for open probe | 14 March 2018 | Russia's envoy to the UN has demanded proof of Russia's involvement in the incident in Salisbury. He also asked members of UNSC to think who would benefit from these accusations. Vasily Nebenzya said the UK dragged this case to the UN rather than addressing a relevant international body in the Hague because it is scared of a professional probe...He said that the letter from Theresa May included unjustified accusations that Moscow had something to do with the use of toxic agents in Salisbury. "We were given 24 hours to confess to a crime," he said. "We do not speak the language of ultimatums."

FBI disciplinary office recommends firing former deputy director Andrew McCabe

FBI disciplinary office recommends firing former deputy director Andrew McCabe | 14 March 2018 | The FBI office that handles employee discipline has recommended firing the bureau's former deputy director over allegations that he authorized the disclosure of sensitive information to a reporter and misled investigators when asked about it -- though Justice Department officials are still reviewing the matter and have not come to a final decision, a person familiar with the case said. The recommendation from the FBI's Office of Professional Responsibility is likely to add fuel to the political fire surrounding former deputy director Andrew McCabe, who abruptly stepped down from his post earlier this year but technically remained an FBI employee. McCabe was hoping to retire in days, when he becomes eligible for his full benefits...President Trump has long made McCabe a particular target of his ire, and the recommendation to fire the former No. 2 FBI official could give him new ammunition.

US Appeals Court Upholds Texas's Ban on 'Sanctuary Cities'

US Appeals Court Upholds Texas's Ban on 'Sanctuary Cities' | 13 March 2018 | A federal appeals court Tuesday upheld the bulk of Texas's crackdown on "sanctuary cities" in a victory for the Trump administration as part of its aggressive fight against measures seen as protecting immigrants who are in the U.S. illegally. The ruling by a three-judge panel of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans allows Texas to enforce what critics call the toughest state-level immigration measure since Arizona passed what critics called a "Show Me Your Papers" law in 2010. The law allows police officers to ask people during routine stops whether they're in the U.S. legally and threatens sheriffs with jail time for not cooperating with federal immigration authorities.

Trump's pick for new CIA chief dogged by secret prisons

Trump's pick for new CIA chief dogged by secret prisons | 13 March 2018 | Gina Haspel, the veteran CIA undercover officer President Donald Trump picked on Tuesday to head the agency, is supported by many in the U.S. intelligence community but has faced criticism for overseeing a secret CIA prison in Thailand where detainees were tortured. Intelligence officers who served with her, and congressional officials said that in 2002, during Republican President [sic] George W. Bush's administration, she was responsible for the secret prison code-named "Cat's Eye." Two suspected members of the al Qaeda militant group were subjected to waterboarding and other harsh interrogation techniques at the facility. Three years later, still during Bush's presidency, she carried out an order to destroy videotapes of the waterboarding, which simulates drowning and is considered a form of torture, according to those people.

Volkswagen ordered to rehire employee suspected of trying to join ISIS

Volkswagen ordered to rehire employee suspected of trying to join ISIS | 13 March 2018 | A German court has ruled that Volkswagen should reinstate an employee that was fired on suspicion of terrorism-related activities. The company failed to prove that he poses a genuine threat...a regional labor court in the state of Lower Saxony ruled on Monday. The person in question is a German citizen of Algerian descent, identified only as Samir B. He worked as an assembly worker at one of the Volkswagen plants in the city of Wolfsburg, located around 90 km (55.9 miles) east of Hannover. Volkswagen's lawyers argued that the man issued threats against his colleagues, reportedly telling them they "will all die." They also told the court that they believed he could potentially stage a terrorist attack at the plant...All these facts appeared to carry insufficient weight for the Lower Saxony court, however, which deemed his dismissal invalid.

Rex Tillerson Out as Trump's Secretary of State, Replaced by Mike Pompeo | 13 March 2018 | President Trump on Tuesday ousted his secretary of state, Rex W. Tillerson, extending a shake-up of his administration, 14 months into his tumultuous presidency, and potentially transforming the nation's economic and foreign policy. Mr. Trump announced he would replace Mr. Tillerson with Mike Pompeo, the C.I.A. director and former Tea Party congressman, who forged a close relationship with the president and is viewed as being more in sync with Mr. Trump's America First credo. "We were not really thinking the same," Mr. Trump told reporters at the White House, explaining his decision to replace Mr. Tillerson.

Russia won't respond to UK ultimatum until samples of alleged chemical weapon received - Lavrov | 13 March 2018 | Moscow will not respond to the British request about a clandestine Soviet chemical weapon allegedly used in an ex-double agent's poisoning until a sample of the agent is provided, the Russian foreign minister said. On Monday, British Prime Minister Theresa May said a chemical weapon developed under a secret Soviet program dubbed Novichok was used in the poisoning of Sergei Skripal. May demanded that Russia provide details of the program, saying otherwise London would consider the poisoning an attack directed by the Russian government.

Pentagon to Congress: You Can't Stop Us from Fueling Saudi Arabia's War in Yemen

Pentagon to Congress: You Can't Stop Us from Fueling Saudi Arabia's War in Yemen | 09 March 2018 | On February 28, Senators Mike Lee (R-UT), Chris Murphy (D-CT), and Bernie Sanders (I-VT) introduced Senate Joint Resolution 54, a resolution that seeks to end U.S. support for Saudi Arabia's war in on Yemen. Even before the resolution was introduced, the Department of Defense responded with the extraordinary claim that Congress lacked the legal authority to "override the President's determination as Commander in Chief" and end the United States involvement in the conflict...The Pentagon's claim that Congress lacks the power to limit U.S. involvement in the Yemeni civil war is an even more serious encroachment on Congress's constitutional authority over the military.

May told parliament that either the Russian state was directly responsible for the poisoning or it had allowed the nerve agent to get into the hands of others. London has given Russia until the end of Tuesday to explain its use.
