Justice Anthony Kennedy to Retire From Supreme Court

Breaking: Justice Anthony Kennedy to Retire From Supreme Court | 27 June 2018 | Justice Anthony M. Kennedy announced on Wednesday that he would retire, setting the stage for a furious fight over the future direction of the Supreme Court. Justice Kennedy, 81, has long been the decisive vote in many closely divided cases. His retirement gives President Trump the opportunity to fundamentally change the course of the Supreme Court. A Trump appointee would very likely create a solid five-member conservative majority that could imperil abortion rights and expand gun rights...Justice Kennedy wrote the majority opinion in Citizens United, which allowed unlimited campaign spending by corporations and unions [aka Deep State], and he joined the majority in Bush v. Gore, which handed the 2000 presidential election [aka coup d'etat] to George W. Bush.

White House, Kremlin agree on time and place for Trump-Putin summit

White House, Kremlin agree on time and place for Trump-Putin summit | 27 June 2018 | The White House and the Kremlin have agreed on a time and place for a summit meeting between President Trump and Vladi­mir Putin, a Russian official said Wednesday after talks here between the Russian president and national security adviser John Bolton. The details of the much-anticipated meeting will be announced Thursday, the official, Kremlin foreign policy adviser Yuri Ushakov, told reporters. The meeting is expected to take place in mid-July, when Trump will be in Europe for previously scheduled visits to Belgium and Britain..."Your visit here to Moscow inspires hope that we will be able to take first steps to restore full-fledged relations between Russia and the United States," Putin said.

US seeks to install $1bn radar in Hawaii to detect ballistic missiles; installation mandated by NDAA under Obama

Obama's Deep State defense industry giveaway: US seeks to install $1bn radar in Hawaii to detect ballistic missiles; installation mandated by NDAA under Obama | 27 June 2018 | The Pentagon wants to spend $1 billion to install missile defense radar in Hawaii to [allegedly] track ballistic threats coming from North Korea or elsewhere, according to officials. The flat-face surface radar would "counter evolving missile threats in the Pacific Region", the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) says. Although the timing of the radar's construction seems curious given current efforts at rapprochement with North Korea, plans for the military installation actually predate the Trump administration. The radar system was [insanely] mandated by the 2017 National Defense Authorization Act, which was signed into law by Barack Obama in December 2016.

Trump-backed South Carolina Gov. McMaster wins GOP runoff

Trump-backed South Carolina Gov. McMaster wins GOP runoff | 26 June 2018 | One of President Donald Trump's earliest and most loyal supporters won a key runoff Tuesday, as South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster fended off a challenge from a self-made millionaire to secure the Republican gubernatorial nomination. The vote tested the heft of Trump's endorsement in South Carolina, where McMaster, 71, was elevated to the governorship he’d long sought early last year following the departure of Nikki Haley to serve as U.N. ambassador. As lieutenant governor, McMaster was the nation’s first statewide elected official to back Trump, ahead of South Carolina’s early presidential primary.

Supreme Court rules non-union workers cannot be forced to pay fees to public sector unions

Breaking: Supreme Court rules non-union workers cannot be forced to pay fees to public sector unions --Experts said that a holding in favor of Janus would be the most significant court decision affecting collective bargaining rights in decades. | 27 June 2018 | The Supreme Court ruled 5-4 Wednesday that non-union workers cannot be forced to pay fees to public sector unions. The case, one of the most hotly anticipated of the term, concerned whether public employees can be forced to pay fees that fund the work of public sector unions. Mark Janus, an employee at the Illinois Department of Healthcare and Human Services, asked the court last summer to overrule a 40-year-old Supreme Court decision. It found that public sector unions could require employees affected by their negotiations to pay so-called "agency fees," which have also been called "fair share fees."

NYT Op-Ed: Conservatives Have 'No Right to an Audience'

NYT Op-Ed: Conservatives Have 'No Right to an Audience' | 26 June 2018 | On Monday, The New York Times ran an [a poorly written] op-ed from Bryan W. Van Norden, professor of philosophy at Wuhan University, Yale-NUS College and Vassar College, calling for de-platforming of all conservative dissenters...To open, Norden juxtaposes worthwhile opinions with non-worthwhile opinions. Worthwhile opinions include "historically informed argument from Ta-Nehisi Coates that structural racism makes the American dream possible" and "the nuanced thoughts of Kate Manne, a professor of philosophy at Cornell University, about the role of 'himpathy' in supporting misogyny." ...But let's be clear: Norden isn't just recommending that his political preferences be implemented by media institutions. If he had his way, the government would get into the business of de-platforming.

Supreme Court upholds travel ban, handing Trump major victory

In a 5-4 ruling, the court's conservative wing said Trump has broad discretion under immigration law to suspend the entry of people into the United States. "The president lawfully exercised that discretion based on his findings -- following a worldwide, multi-agency review -- that entry of the covered aliens would be detrimental to the national interest," Chief Justice John Roberts wrote in the opinion.

Democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ousts Joe Crowley in New York stunner

Democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ousts Joe Crowley in New York stunner | 26 June 2018 | Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a 28-year-old Latina running her first campaign, ousted 10-term incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley in New York's 14th congressional district, CNN projects, in the most shocking upset of a rollicking political season. Ocasio-Cortez, an activist and member of the Democratic Socialists of America, won over voters in the minority-majority district with a ruthlessly efficient grassroots bid, even as Crowley -- the fourth-ranked Democrat in the House -- outraised her by a 10-to-1 margin. This was the first time in 14 years a Democrat has attempted unseat Crowley, who chairs the Queens County Democrats.

Supreme Court won't take case of florist who refused service for same-sex couple

Supreme Court won't take case of florist who refused service for same-sex couple | 25 June 2018 | Just back after ruling in favor of a cake baker who refused to make a cake for a wedding celebration of a same-sex couple, the Supreme Court on Monday wiped away an opinion that went against a florist who declined to make an arrangement for a same-sex couple's marriage. In an unsigned order, the court sent the case back down to a lower court and asked it to revisit the florist's case in light of the ruling in Masterpiece Cakeshop. The court's order suggests that while the justices want the lower court to take another look at the case given the court's most recent ruling, the justices themselves aren't ready to jump into the contentious debate for now.

Landmark lawsuit claims Monsanto hid cancer danger of weedkiller for decades | 22 May 2018 | With cancer spread through most of his body, doctors say DeWayne Johnson probably has just months to live. Johnson, a husband and father of three in California, hopes to survive long enough to make Monsanto take the blame for his fate. On 18 June, Johnson, 46, will become the first person to take the global seed and chemical company to trial on allegations that it has spent decades hiding the cancer-causing dangers of its popular Roundup herbicide products -- and his case has just received a major boost.
