'Super Polluting' Trucks Receive Loophole on Pruitt's Last Day at EPA

'Super Polluting' Trucks Receive Loophole on Pruitt's Last Day at EPA | 06 July 2018 | In the final hours of Scott Pruitt's tenure as administrator, the Environmental Protection Agency moved on Friday to effectively grant a loophole that will allow a major increase in the manufacturing of a diesel freight truck that produces as much as 55 times the air pollution as trucks that have modern emissions controls. The move by the E.P.A. came after intense lobbying by a small set of manufacturers that sell glider trucks, which use old engines built before new technologies significantly reduced emissions of particulates and nitrogen oxide that are blamed for asthma, lung cancer and other ailments... Agency officials confirmed to The New York Times that, through the end of 2019, the E.P.A. will not enforce an annual cap of 300 gliders per manufacturer that had been imposed in January.

Memos detail FBI's 'Hurry the F up pressure' to probe Trump campaign

Memos detail FBI's 'Hurry the F up pressure' to probe Trump campaign | 06 July 2018 | Investigators already have unearthed troubling internal [FBI] communications long withheld from public view. We already know from FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok's now-infamous text messages with his fellow agent and reported lover, Lisa Page, that Strzok -- the man driving that Russia collusion investigation -- disdained Donald Trump and expressed willingness to use his law enforcement powers to "stop" the Republican from becoming president. Memos the FBI is producing to the Department of Justice (DOJ) inspector general and multiple Senate and House committees offer what sources involved in the production, review or investigation describe to me as "damning" or "troubling" evidence. They show Strzok and his counterintelligence team rushing in the fall of 2016 to find "derogatory" information from informants or a "pretext" to accelerate the probe and get a surveillance warrant on figures tied to the future president.

Fuel removal from Fukushima reactor may be delayed

Fuel removal from Fukushima reactor may be delayed | 28 June 2018 | The operator of the damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant says work to remove spent nuclear fuel from a cooling pool at one of its reactors may be delayed.

Tokyo Electric Power Company, or TEPCO, planned to start removing the fuel as early as this autumn, as part of the decommissioning of the nuclear complex. But on Thursday, TEPCO revealed the control board of a crane used in the removal malfunctioned during a test run last month.

Richard Spencer stopped by authorities while traveling in Europe - report | 05 July 2018 | White nationalist leader Richard Spencer was reportedly stopped by authorities in Europe this week while attempting to travel to address young white nationalists. Spencer seemingly confirmed the incident Thursday on Twitter, sharing a Swedish-language tweet from another "alt-right" supporter saying that Spencer had been banned in Europe because of his views...ThinkProgress, citing Swedish media, reported earlier Thursday that Spencer attempted to travel to Sweden to make a surprise appearance at a conference for young white nationalists when he was stopped by Polish authorities during a layover in the country, who told him to return to the U.S. The Associated Press reported last year that Spencer had been banned from entering 26 European countries.

Under fire for ethics scandals, EPA chief Pruitt resigns

Under fire for ethics scandals, EPA chief Pruitt resigns | 05 July 2018 | U.S. Environmental Protection Agency chief [swamp rat] Scott Pruitt, who pleased President Donald Trump by rolling back environmental regulations but came under heavy fire in a series of ethics controversies, has resigned, Trump said on Thursday. Pruitt was under scrutiny for months over first-class travel at taxpayer expense, security spending, connections with lobbyists and industry groups, accusations of using his office for favors, a $43,000 soundproof phone booth for his office and his rental of a high-end condo from an energy lobbyist's wife. Numerous Democratic lawmakers and even some fellow Republicans had called for his resignation.

Former MSNBC host Ed Schultz dies

Former MSNBC host Ed Schultz dies | 05 July 2018 | Liberal commentator Ed Schultz died at his lake home in Minnesota, according to a report on Thursday. WDAY in Fargo, N.D., reported that the longtime broadcaster died of natural causes. He was 64. Schultz started his career in Fargo before eventually working as a commentator and host at MSNBC. Fans praised his focus on middle-class issues on his TV show "The Ed Show," which was broadcast weekday afternoons. Schultz's MSNBC show was canceled in 2015 [after he spoke against the TPP - the Deep State scum-bags at MSNBC didn't like that very much], and in January 2016 he joined RT America, the English-language Russian news channel.

CIA Teams With Defense Industry to Undermine Korea Negotiations

CIA Teams With Defense Industry to Undermine Korea Negotiations | 30 June 2018 | Factions within the CIA attempted for the second time in just over a month to undermine President Donald Trump's peace overtures towards North Korea by leaking information calculated to decrease confidence in Kim Jong Un's willingness to earnestly negotiate. On June 29, 2018, NBC News released a report quoting anonymous CIA officials who claimed that North Korea was increasing nuclear production at "secret sites" without providing any actual evidence for such claims. The report's credibility is further weakened by the fact that it also cited reports from a think tank which has strong connections to the defense industry and other private special interests. In disseminating their report, the CIA used NBC reporter [sic] Ken Dilanian as an outlet for leaks. As Disobedient Media previously reported, Dilanian was outed by the Intercept in 2014 as a CIA asset.

Trump administration set to scrap Obama-era guidelines for diversity in university admissions | 03 July 2018 | President Donald Trump's administration is set to scrap guidelines designed to promote diversity in university admissions, US media reported. The policies were introduced by Mr Trump's predecessor, Barack Obama, and outlined legal recommendations for institutions looking to consider race in applications as a way to boost diversity on campuses.

American border patrol agents stopping and boarding Canadian vessels - spokesman | 04 July 2018 | A little-known cross-border dispute that has simmered between Canada and the United States since the late 1700s is now approaching the boiling point. In the past two weeks, at least 10 Canadian fishing boats from New Brunswick have been intercepted by U.S. Border Patrol agents while fishing in the disputed waters around Machias Seal Island, a spokesman for the fishermen says. Laurence Cook, chairman of the advisory board for Lobster Fishing Area 38, said Wednesday that some Canadian vessels were boarded by American agents who asked about possible illegal immigrants.

That appearance was the first congressional appearance by Strzok following revelations of anti-Trump messages he exchanged with colleague Lisa Page.

Wolfgang Halbig has stunning evidence that Sandy Hook Elementary School was closed months before 'massacre'

Wolfgang Halbig has stunning evidence that Sandy Hook Elementary School was closed months before 'massacre' | 18 June 2018 | We are told that on December 14, 2012, a lone gunman, Adam Lanza, went to Sandy Hook Elementary School (SHES) in Newtown, Connecticut, where in the space of 11 minutes, shot and killed 20 first-graders and 6 adults. We are also told that after the massacre, SHES relocated to an empty school in neighboring Monroe, CT -- Chalk Hill Middle School at 375 Fan Hill Rd. -- until a new swanky SHES was rebuilt with the $50 million from the state of Connecticut as a result of the shooting massacre. It turns out that SHES had moved to Chalk Hill months before the alleged massacre, which leads to this question: Since SHES had moved to Monroe, who, then, were the students and teachers whom Lanza shot to death at SHES on December 14, 2012? ...[Other 'oddities':] Years before the "massacre," the school was reported to be in disrepair and contaminated with environmental toxins, including the deadly asbestos. --Absence of legally-required designated handicapped parking spaces and signage in the many aerial photographic and video images of the school’s parking lot taken by news media on the day of the "massacre". --Testimony from the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine of the school's lack of Internet activity from the beginning of 2008 through all of 2012.

Mexico's leftist Lopez Obrador wins largest landslide in country's recent history | 02 July 2018 | Veteran Leftist Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has been elected president of Mexico, winning the largest landslide in his country's recent history in a remarkable routing of what he terms "the mafia of power".

Donald Trump, the US president, was quick to congratulate the 64-year-old, who has charted a careful course of not antagonising his northern neighbour, but vowing to put Mexico first. "I look very much forward to working with him," said Mr Trump.

Manafort Assistant Gave FBI Access to Storage Locker - Testimony

Manafort Assistant Gave FBI Access to Storage Locker - Testimony | 29 June 2018 | A personal assistant to Paul Manafort granted the FBI access to a storage locker, allowing the government to secure evidence that President Donald Trump's former campaign manager is trying to suppress, according to testimony on Friday in a federal court hearing in Virginia.

Manafort's lawyers have sought to suppress the searches as part of a broader attempt to discredit the investigation of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is probing whether Trump's campaign worked with Russia to sway the election. Manafort, who is now in jail, has been charged mainly for financial crimes not related to the campaign.
