Rusty shipping container full of nuclear refuse leaks at Westinghouse fuel plant

Rusty shipping container full of nuclear refuse leaks at Westinghouse fuel plant | 26 July 2019 | When nuclear plant workers looked in a huge, 40-foot long shipping container at an atomic fuel factory two months ago, they discovered a hole in the roof that allowed rainwater to leak inside, where barrels full of radioactive trash were stacked. Then, the workers discovered water had dripped onto some of the drums, causing uranium to trickle out and into the soil below the Westinghouse atomic fuel rod plant [Bluff Road plant] southeast of Columbia, according to state and federal regulatory agencies. The leaking roof is the latest problem to surface at the 50-year-old fuel factory, where recent troubles have focused the spotlight on nuclear safety and operating practices...The problem was discovered May 31, according to DHEC.

Troubled nuclear fuel plant in S. Carolina kept radioactive trash in leaky and rusty container

Troubled nuclear fuel plant in S. Carolina kept radioactive trash in leaky and rusty container | 27 July 2019 | A rusty shipping container full of uranium-tainted trash was found to be seeping contaminated sludge into the soil at Westinghouse fuel rod factory in S. Carolina, adding another radiation spike to the facility's list of troubles. Uranium levels in the ground at one spot underneath the container are nearly double the 11ppm safety standard, the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) reported on Friday, blaming the facility's egregious waste storage protocol for the contamination. Rain entered through a hole in the 40-foot container's roof, dousing the barrels full of radioactive trash stashed within, and the uranium-tainted water eventually trickled into the soil.

Trump considering labeling antifa a terrorist organization

Trump considering labeling antifa a terrorist organization | 27 July 2019 | President Trump declared Saturday he is considering labeling the militant anti-fascist movement antifa a terrorist organization. "Consideration is being given to declaring ANTIFA, the gutless Radical Left Wack Jobs who go around hitting (only non-fighters) people over the heads with baseball bats, a major Organization of Terror (along with MS-13 & others)," Trump tweeted Saturday. "Would make it easier for police to do their job!" Trump's announcement comes just days after GOP Sens. Bill Cassidy (La.) and Ted Cruz (Texas) introduced a nonbinding resolution that would label antifa activists as "domestic terrorists."

Supreme Court paves way for Trump administration to use military funds for border wall | 26 July 2019 | The Supreme Court sided with the Trump administration on Friday in lifting a freeze backed by a lower court that had halted plans to use $2.5 billion in Pentagon funds for border wall construction. The decision, which split the bench along ideological lines, allows the administration to move ahead with plans to use military funds to replace existing fencing in California, Arizona and New Mexico. The conservative justices on the court ruled in favor of the administration.

Trump announces 'landmark agreement' with Guatemala to restrict asylum claims

Trump announces 'landmark agreement' with Guatemala to restrict asylum claims | 26 July 2019 | President Trump on Friday announced a so-called "safe third country" deal with Guatemala to restrict asylum claims to the United States from Central America, calling it a "landmark agreement" and arguing it "will put the coyotes and smugglers out of business." "We've long been working with Guatemala and now we can do it the right way," Trump told reporters in the Oval Office, with Guatemalan interior minister Enrique Degenhart at his side...The agreement would require migrants, including Salvadorans and Hondurans, who cross into Guatemala on their way to the U.S. to apply for protections in Guatemala instead of at the U.S. border.

Judge dismisses Covington student's defamation suit against Washington Post

Judge dismisses Covington student's defamation suit against Washington Post | 26 July 2019 | A federal judge in Kentucky Friday threw out a defamation lawsuit filed against The Washington Post by Covington Catholic High School student Nicholas Sandmann and his family over the paper's reporting of an incident between the young man and a Native American man this past January in Washington. The lawsuit, which was filed in February, sought $250 million in damages and accused the Post of practicing "a modern-day form of McCarthyism" by targeting Sandmann and "using its vast financial resources to enter the bully pulpit by publishing a series of false and defamatory print and online articles...to smear a young boy who was in its view an acceptable casualty in their war against the president."

DOJ looking at why 'exculpatory' material was not presented in applications for surveillance warrants - sources

DOJ looking at why 'exculpatory' material was not presented in applications for surveillance warrants - sources | 26 July 2019 | The Justice Department's internal review of the Russia investigation is zeroing in on transcripts of recordings made by at least one government source who met with former Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos overseas in 2016, specifically looking at why certain "exculpatory" material from them was not presented in subsequent applications for surveillance warrants, according to two sources familiar with the review. The sources also said the review is taking a closer look at the actual start date of the original FBI investigation into potential collusion between members of the Trump campaign and the Russians, as some allege the probe began earlier than thought. Both components are considered key in the review currently being led by Attorney General Bill Barr and U.S. Attorney from Connecticut John Durham -- an effort sure to draw more attention in the coming weeks and months now that Robert Mueller's testimony is in the rearview.

Barr directs federal government to reinstate death penalty, schedule the execution of 5 death row inmates | 25 July 2019 | The federal government has ordered the death penalty to be reinstated for the first time in nearly two decades, as Attorney General William Barr directed the Bureau of Prisons to schedule the execution of five inmates after adopting an updated execution protocol. After 16 years without an execution, Barr has directed the head of the Bureau of Prisons to execute "five death-row inmates convicted of murdering, and in some cases torturing and raping, the most vulnerable in our society -- children and the elderly" in December and January, according to a statement from the Department of Justice.

Tulsi Gabbard sues Google over censorship claims --"With this lawsuit, Tulsi seeks to stop Google from further inter-meddling in the 2020 United States Presidential Election," the complaint reads. | 25 July 2019 | Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii), a 2020 presidential contender, is suing Google over claims that the tech behemoth [Deep State terrorists] violated her right to "free speech." In a complaint filed Thursday with the central California federal court, Gabbard alleged Google censored her presidential campaign when it suspended their advertising account for several hours last month. Gabbard's lawsuit marks the first time a presidential contender has sued a large technology company over similar claims. The Hawaii Democrat's principal campaign committee, Tulsi Now, Inc., is suing Google for violating her First Amendment rights along with a litany of violations under California law. [Go Tulsi, go!]

Robert Mueller deflected lawmakers' questions 198 times during his testimony on the Russia probe

Robert Mueller deflected lawmakers' questions 198 times during his testimony on the Russia probe --Fed up Ohio Republican Rep. Jim Jordan said, 'A lot of things you can't get into' after Mueller gave six 'I can't get into that' responses --Mueller said his investigation did not exonerate Trump of wrongdoing and he could still be charged when he leaves office | 24 July 2019 | Despite the high stakes and anticipation ahead of Robert Mueller's testimony on Wednesday, he gave a flat, lackluster performance before lawmakers and dodged probe questions nearly 200 times. Mueller took to the stand to provide insight into his two-year investigation into [alleged] Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, but refused to provide any additional details beyond the 448-page report he published in April...The former Special Counsel asked lawmakers to repeat their questions 30 times, asked lawmakers to refer to his report 34 times, and excused himself from answering questions saying they were outside of his 'purview' 10 times, according to Politico. He also dodged questions saying he 'can't' or 'won't' get into the substance of the inquiry a total of 99 times during his testimony. In total he deflected answering questions a whopping 198 times, according to an NBC tally.

Puerto Rico governor resigns after weeks of mass protests

Puerto Rico governor resigns after weeks of mass protests | 25 July 2019 | Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rosselló on Wednesday said he would resign after almost two weeks of protests calling for him to step down over a scandal involving offensive chat messages and government corruption that rocked the bankrupt [despite getting $92B in aid] island. Rosselló said in a televised speech he would stay in his position until Aug. 2 when Puerto Rico Secretary of Justice Wanda Vazquez would take over as governor. The first-term governor announced his resignation three days after he failed on Sunday to soothe critics' concerns by vowing not to seek re-election next year and giving up the leadership of his political party.

DOJ won't charge William Barr, Wilbur Ross after contempt vote

DOJ won't charge William Barr, Wilbur Ross after contempt vote | 24 July 2019 | The Justice Department will not bring criminal charges against Attorney General William Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross after the Democrat-led House voted last week to hold them in contempt. In a letter to Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday, Deputy Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen said the Cabinet officials' defiance of congressional subpoenas seeking information about the 2020 census "did not constitute a crime." Lawmakers never expected the Justice Department to prosecute its own leader and another cabinet official, but Rosen's letter represented the department’s formal response to a House vote that, in effect, referred Barr and Ross for criminal prosecution.

Federal judge blocks Trump restrictions on asylum at U.S.-Mexico border | 24 July 2019 | A federal judge Wednesday blocked the Trump administration from enforcing a new rule that bars asylum for the vast majority of migrants trying to enter the U.S. at the southern border. U.S. District Judge Jon S. Tigar, an Obama appointee, issued a nationwide preliminary injunction against the 10-day-old rule that made migrants ineligible for asylum if they passed through another country en route to the U.S. and failed to apply for protection in that country. Most asylum seekers come from Central America.

Mexico says no to safe third-country asylum discussion with U.S. | 22 July 2019 | Mexico will not agree to further discussion of safe third country status for asylum seekers, the foreign minister said, adding it was not clear what the Trump administration’s stance was on the issue despite a deadline reached on Monday. Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard said that in weekend talks, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo did not address an earlier deal that the two countries look at making asylum seekers apply for refuge in Mexico if migration flows were not significantly lower by July 22. However, Ebrard said he told Pompeo in Mexico City on Sunday that Mexico's view was that the proposal was unnecessary, after it helped reduce apprehensions at the U.S. southern border by a about a third last month.

New Pentagon chief attacks water contamination linked to cancers on his first day

New Pentagon chief attacks water contamination linked to cancers on his first day | 24 July 2019 | The Pentagon is launching a task force to look at the potential impact and dangers that chemical compounds used in military firefighting foam have had on military bases and the families who live there, Defense Secretary Mark Esper announced on his first day in office. Per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances, known as PFAS, are compounds found in everyday plastics and household products, but are concentrated in firefighting foam which the military has used for decades. That foam has seeped into the groundwater and well water surrounding military bases and has been found in drinking water sources. Last year the Pentagon published a list of hundreds of contaminated private and public water sources on military bases and in the communities surrounding those installations.

Officials said notices won't stop there and will continue to be rolled out across the 50 states and Puerto Rico.

In June 2019, we were informed by the FTC that it had opened an antitrust investigation of our company," Facebook said in an earnings release. The revelation comes a day after the Justice Department separately announced that it was launching an investigation into whether major tech companies have stifled competition or harmed consumers.

Fusion who? Mueller doesn't seem to know the name of firm that compiled infamous 'Steele Dossier'

Fusion who? Mueller doesn't seem to know the name of firm that compiled infamous 'Steele Dossier' | 24 July 2019 | With Republicans questioning the origins of former special counsel Robert Mueller's 'Russiagate' investigation, Mueller claimed he was not familiar with one of the key players behind the whole affair: Fusion GPS. Fusion GPS is an opposition research firm that was hired by the Hillary Clinton election campaign to dig up 'dirt' on then-Candidate Donald Trump in 2016. The firm hired Christopher Steele, a former British spy, to compile a dossier on Trump, which was then used by the FBI to obtain a surveillance warrant against former Trump aide Carter Page, despite being completely unverified and loaded with salacious gossip. Steele and his dossier were mentioned in Mueller's final report, as was "the firm that produced the Steele reporting." However, when pressed on the dossier by Rep. Steve Chabot (R-Ohio), Mueller seemingly admitted that he didn't even know Fusion GPS by name.

Jim Jordan grills Mueller during tense hearing: Bill Barr will 'get to bottom' of false accusations | 24 July 2019 | Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, grilled former special counsel Robert Mueller on Capitol Hill Wednesday, accusing him of selective prosecution methods and promising Attorney General Bill Barr would get to the truth. ..."Maybe a better course of action is to figure out how the false accusations started. Maybe's it's to go back and actually figure out why Joseph Mifsud was lying to the FBI and...that's exactly what Bill Barr's doing. And thank goodness for that. That's exactly what the attorney general is doing...and they're going to find out whey we went through this three-year saga and get to the bottom of it." Jordan also asked why informant Joseph Mifsud had not been charged with any crimes, despite lying to the FBI and posing as a Cambridge University professor, in an attempt to pump George Papadopoulos for confidential campaign information. "He lied three times you pointed out in the report, why didn't you charge him with a crime?" Jordan asked. "I can't get into internal deliberations with regard to who would or would not be [charged]," Mueller replied.

Mueller declines to answer dozens of questions from lawmakers

Mueller declines to answer dozens of questions from lawmakers | 24 July 2019 | Former special counsel Robert Mueller on Wednesday avoided answering dozens of questions over the course of two separate House hearings, declining repeatedly to engage with lawmakers on subjects beyond the scope of his public report. Mueller's testimony before the House Judiciary Committee and House Intelligence Committee marked his first time answering questions about the findings of the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

The new antitrust inquiry under Attorney General William Barr could ratchet up the already considerable regulatory pressures facing the top U.S. tech firms. The review is designed to go above and beyond recent plans for scrutinizing the tech sector that were crafted by the department and the Federal Trade Commission.

Freedom Caucus formally opposes Trump's budget deal

Freedom Caucus formally opposes Trump's budget deal | 23 July 2019 | The House Freedom Caucus took an official position Tuesday not to back President Trump's spending deal and agreement to lift the debt ceiling, citing concerns with its impact on the national debt.

Robert Mueller soon may be exposed as the 'magician of omission' on Russia

Robert Mueller soon may be exposed as the 'magician of omission' on Russia | 23 July 2019 | While most of the political world focused its attention elsewhere, special prosecutor John Durham's team quietly reached out this summer to a lawyer representing European academic Joseph Mifsud, one of the earliest and most mysterious figures in the now closed Russia-collusion case. An investigator told Swiss attorney Stephan Roh that Durham's team wanted to interview Mifsud, or at the very least review a recorded deposition the professor gave in summer 2018 about his role in the drama involving Donald Trump, Russia and the 2016 election...Mifsud was a "longtime cooperator of western intel" who was asked specifically by his contacts at Link University in Rome and the London Center of International Law Practice (LCILP) -- two academic groups with ties to Western diplomacy and intelligence -- to meet with [Trump campaign adviser George] Papadopoulos at a dinner in Rome in mid-March 2016, Roh told me. A May 2019 letter from Nunes to U.S. intelligence officials corroborates some of Roh's account, revealing photos showing that the FBI conducted training at Link in fall 2016 and that Mifsud and other Link officials met regularly with world leaders, including Boris Johnson, elected today as Britain's new prime minister.

Barr says Mueller asked DOJ to send letter limiting testimony to 'boundaries' of report

Barr says Mueller asked DOJ to send letter limiting testimony to 'boundaries' of report | 23 July 2019 | Attorney General Bill Barr told Fox News on Tuesday that it was former Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team who asked the Justice Department to send Mueller a letter telling him to keep his upcoming testimony to House lawmakers "within the boundaries" of the public version of his Russia probe report. The letter provoked criticism from Democrats ahead of Wednesday’s highly anticipated hearing...Asked by Fox News why the Monday letter was sent, Barr said Mueller's staff asked the department for guidance ahead of the hearing.

Senate confirms Esper as new Secretary of Defense in 90-8 vote | 23 July 2019 | The Senate confirmed former Army Lt. Col. Mark Esper as Secretary of Defense Tuesday, making him the first permanent Pentagon boss since James Mattis resigned last December.

The vote was not close, with the Senate confirming Esper by a vote of 90-8.
