NYC bans terms including 'illegal alien,' criticizing those who have 'limited English proficiency' - will impose fines of up to $250K

NYC bans terms including 'illegal alien,' criticizing those who have 'limited English proficiency' - will impose fines of up to $250K | 28 Sept 2019 | New York City's Commission on Human Rights announced on Thursday that residents could face up to $250,000 in fines if they use terms such as "illegal alien ... with intent to demean, humiliate or harass a person." The city's announcement ticked off a list of offensive ways to address immigrants -- including threatening to call Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), or harassing someone for their "limited English proficiency." "Threatening to call ICE when motivated by discrimination, derogatory use of the term 'illegal alien,' and discrimination based on limited English proficiency are unlawful discriminatory treatment under the NYC Human Rights Law," the announcement read. It clarified that calling ICE with a "discriminatory motive" was a violation. It was not immediately clear what New York City would consider a call to ICE lacking in "discriminatory motive."

These once-secret memos cast doubt on Joe Biden's Ukraine story

These once-secret memos cast doubt on Joe Biden's Ukraine story | 26 Sept 2019 | Former Vice President Joe Biden, now a 2020 Democratic presidential contender, has locked into a specific story about the controversy in Ukraine. He insists that, in spring 2016, he strong-armed Ukraine to fire its chief prosecutor solely because Biden believed that official was corrupt and inept, not because the Ukrainian was investigating a natural gas company, Burisma Holdings, that hired Biden's son, Hunter, into a lucrative job. There’s just one problem. Hundreds of pages of never-released memos and documents -- many from inside the American team helping Burisma to stave off its legal troubles -- conflict with Biden's narrative. And they raise the troubling prospect that U.S. officials may have painted a false picture in Ukraine that helped ease Burisma's legal troubles and stop prosecutors' plans to interview Hunter Biden during the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

It showed Trump sought a probe into Biden family dealings in the country, though it did not show Trump explicitly linking the request to U.S. aid, as some have suggested.

Social Credit Will Shift Law in the West 'From Constitution...to Analytics and Algorithm' - Penn State Professor

Social Credit Will Shift Law in the West 'From Constitution...to Analytics and Algorithm' - Penn State Professor | 22 Sept 2019 | A.I. driven social scores to supplant constitution? Professor Larry Backer of Penn State University writes in a 2018 paper that resistance to social credit systems in the west could be dissolved when the masses are "socialized… as a collective" and "…the great culture management machinery of Western society develop a narrative in which such activity is naturalized within Western culture." A 2018 paper written by prominent law professor Larry Backer of Penn State discussed the ways in which a social credit system could be implemented in the west. Backer writes that the shift in law with this system will "…change the focus of public law from constitution and rule of law to analytics and algorithm…" In the paper, titled "Next Generation Law: Data Driven Governance and Accountability Based Regulatory Systems in the West, and Social Credit Regimes in China," Backer describes moves to social credit in the West as "fractured," but gives guidance on how societal norms could be steadily pushed to accept this system.

WH to release document showing intel community watchdog found whistle-blower had 'political bias,' official says | 24 Sept 2019| A senior Trump administration official told Fox News late Tuesday that the administration will release a document showing the intelligence community inspector general found the whistle-blower [sic] who leveled an explosive accusation against President Trump concerning his talks with Ukraine had "political bias" in favor of "a rival candidate" of the president.

The comments, part of the President's address to world leaders at the UN's General Assembly, were part of a series of mixed messages on Iran, as French President Emmanuel Macron and other American allies pushed hard for the Trump administration and Iran to engage in dialogue...Later in the day, Trump told reporters that Iran "would like to negotiate. We haven't really worked that out. They're here. We're here...it certainly makes sense, but we haven't agreed to that yet."

They're big, furry and Congress might help California kill them all to save the Delta | 23 Sept 2019 | A rookie California lawmaker plans to haul a 20-pound rodent carcass into Congress on Tuesday to press his colleagues for money to fight an invasive species wreaking havoc on his district.

Nutria, a large South American rodent, were found in Merced County two years ago, alarming California wildlife officials because of the rodents' potential to harm infrastructure that moves waters to Central Valley farms and Southern California cities.

Even Saudis don't believe fiction of Iranian attacks on oil plants - Zarif

Even Saudis don't believe fiction of Iranian attacks on oil plants - Zarif | 21 Sept 2019 | Saudi Arabia may have joined the US in blaming Iran for last week's attack on its oil facilities, but the kingdom's response clearly shows it doesn't believe it to be true, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has said. "Since the Saudi regime has blamed Iran - baseless as that is - for the attacks on its oil facilities, curious that they retaliated against Hodaideh in Yemen today - breaking a UN ceasefire," Zarif wrote on Twitter...The US is also set to impose additional sanctions on the Iranian banking system in retaliation. Washington framed these as measures necessary to stop the funding of terrorism by Tehran, but Zarif said the US wants to stifle Iran's foreign trade and "its access to food and medicine."

What the uncanceling of Pepe the Frog - just for HK protests, though - tells us about US media

What the uncanceling of Pepe the Frog - just for HK protests, though - tells us about US media --'The difference in the coverage, depending on the narrative, is stunning.' | 21 Sept 2019 | Having written hundreds of articles demonizing the amphibian meme as inherently sinister, news outlets have had to perform a quick 180 now that he has been adopted as the mascot of the Hong Kong protest movement. Pepe the Frog has been everywhere during the past six months of anti-government demonstrations in the Chinese city -- as a flash graffiti drawn on and washed off walls...in user-made pictures and cartoons circulated on social media and in organizers' WhatsApp and Telegram groups...Is this not the same Pepe whose alternately self-satisfied and downbeat visage was used as a vehicle for alt-right talking points prior to the 2016 election? The one that candidate Hillary Clinton dedicated a special warning to on her website, saying he had been "almost entirely co-opted by white supremacists?"

A stark call for change before it’s too late."

US to deploy additional troops, military equipment to Saudi Arabia, UAE | 20 Sept 2019 | The Pentagon on Friday announced it will deploy additional U.S. troops and missile defense equipment to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, as President Donald Trump has at least for now put off any immediate military strike on Iran in response to the attack on the Saudi oil industry.

Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said more details about the deployment will be determined in the coming days, but it would not involve thousands of U.S. troops. Other officials said the U.S. deployment would likely be in the hundreds and the defensive equipment heading to the Middle East would probably include Patriot missile batteries and possibly enhanced radars.

Joseph Dunford, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, described the deployment as "moderate" and said the number of troops would likely not exceed 1,000.

Facebook plans launch of its own 'Supreme Court' for handling takedown appeals

Facebook plans launch of its own 'Supreme Court' for handling takedown appeals | 18 Sept 2019 | Facebook, which has managed to transcend geographic borders to draw in a population equal to roughly a third of all human life on Earth, has made its final charter for a "Supreme Court" of Facebook public. The company pledges to launch this initiative by November of next year. The new Oversight Board will have five key powers, according to a charter Facebook released yesterday.

American Airlines mechanic accused of sabotaging jet may have terrorist ties, feds say

American Airlines mechanic accused of sabotaging jet may have terrorist ties, feds say | 19 Sept 2019 | An American Airlines mechanic accused of sabotaging a navigation system on a flight with 150 people aboard at Miami International Airport was denied bond by a federal judge on Wednesday after prosecutors suggested he may have links to a Middle East terrorist organization. Abdul-Majeed Marouf Ahmed Alani, a 60-year-old veteran employee, told investigators after his arrest earlier this month that he disabled the system because he was upset over stalled union contract negotiations with the airline and wanted to generate some overtime for maintenance on the plane. He said he meant no harm to anyone, and the July 17 flight was aborted before takeoff after an error alert appeared on the navigation system. But federal prosecutors revealed new information about possible motives that prompted Magistrate Judge Chris McAliley to keep Alani behind bars, ruling that he posed a danger to the community and a flight risk.
