A Florida man was arrested after fleeing a traffic stop and then calling 911 to brag about not being caught yet. He was found with drugs in his vehicle and continued to brag about the incident.

Deputies said that 19-year-old Nicholas Carlmann Jones was pulled over in St. Augustine after he fled from a traffic stop. Nicholas was also wanted for a warrant out of the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office.

When he was pulled over, the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office said that they found a jar full of marijuana, THC wax, a small bag containing an unknown white powder, and a dish containing a pink tinted crystal substance. All these narcotics were in the driver's door pocket of the vehicle. Several pipes and dishes were also found.

The arrest affidavit said that the responding officer asked Nicholas why he ran from the traffic stop. Nicholas just smiled and said nothing. So, the officer asked why he would call 911. Nicholas then began to gloat about what he had just done. He smiled and said that "that cop had no right to stop me." He also said that "I saw him turn his lights and sirens on and was going to stop but I didn't want to."

Later in the conversation, the arrest affidavit stated that Nicholas ran because he thought it would be "fun." He said that he called 911 because he could not believe that after obtaining his tag, they could not find him. He even said on the call "what do we pay you guys for? Like I've driven past four cops."

Tom Hofeller wasn’t just an outsider who happened to push a narrative identical to the Trump administration’s.

Last week brought a bombshell revelation in the fight over a controversial question about citizenship status on the 2020 census: Despite the Trump administration’s insistence that it wants to add the question for better voting rights enforcement rather than political gain, key wording in its legal rationale matches memos written by Tom Hofeller, a Republican gerrymandering expert. Hofeller, who died last summer, wrote that if the 2020 census asked about the citizenship status of respondents, it “would clearly be a disadvantage to the Democrats” and “advantageous to Republicans and Non-Hispanic Whites.”

Republican Party financial filings with federal regulators add a twist to this backstory: The party’s main political apparatus paid Hofeller more than $2 million for his work. That suggests that Hofeller’s memos weren’t simply independent advocacy for a pet issue, but that he and his work were deeply embedded in the heart of the GOP’s strategic operations.

According to Republican National Committee filings with the Federal Election Commission, from June 2009 until just weeks before his death last August, the GOP’s main political apparatus paid Hofeller just over $2 million for “legal and compliance” work. In fact, from Trump’s inauguration until July 2018, Hofeller was paid $422,000, in what appear to be regular monthly payments of $22,247.

WASHINGTON — The deal to avert tariffs that President Trump announced with great fanfare on Friday night consists largely of actions that Mexico had already promised to take in prior discussions with the United States over the past several months, according to officials from both countries who are familiar with the negotiations.

Friday’s joint declaration says Mexico agreed to the “deployment of its National Guard throughout Mexico, giving priority to its southern border.” But the Mexican government had already pledged to do that in March during secret talks in Miami between Kirstjen Nielsen, then the secretary of homeland security, and Olga Sanchez, the Mexican secretary of the interior, the officials said.

The centerpiece of Mr. Trump’s deal was an expansion of a program to allow asylum-seekers to remain in Mexico while their legal cases proceed. But that arrangement was reached in December in a pair of painstakingly negotiated diplomatic notes that the two countries exchanged. Ms. Nielsen announced the Migrant Protection Protocols during a hearing of the House Judiciary Committee five days before Christmas.

And over the past week, negotiators failed to persuade Mexico to accept a “safe third country” treaty that would have given the United States the legal ability to reject asylum seekers if they had not sought refuge in Mexico first.

Mr. Trump hailed the agreement anyway on Saturday, writing on Twitter: “Everyone very excited about the new deal with Mexico!” He thanked the president of Mexico for “working so long and hard” on a plan to reduce the surge of migration into the United States.

>Want to secretly, legally send money to Jared Kushner? Here’s how to do it.

Imagine there was a completely secret, perfectly legal way to bribe a government official. Well, let’s not say “bribe”: Let’s imagine that you could channel money to this official — large amounts of money — and never have to reveal your name. Imagine that this official could accept this money, and then use it to make more money, without ever revealing that fact to the public.

Actually, there is no need to imagine such a thing, because it already exists. The thing is called an “opaque offshore vehicle.” Although that sounds like a motorboat with blackout curtains, this one is in fact a kind of bank account, based in the Cayman Islands, a tax haven where business deals are legally shrouded in secrecy. According to a report this week in the British newspaper the Guardian, Goldman Sachs, the investment bank, uses an account like this to funnel money from unnamed investors to a company called Cadre. Cadre, to oversimplify slightly, pools investments in real estate. One of Cadre’s co-founders is Jared Kushner; another co-founder is Kushner’s brother. Cadre’s headquarters are in a building in Manhattan owned by Kushner’s family real estate company.

>What is Article 13?

The European Union has passed a wide-reaching update to copyright laws, the first since 2001. Most of the changes in the EU Copyright Directive are uncontroversial, setting out how copyright contracts are managed and licensed, but Article 13 could have a huge impact on how material is shared online. Put simply, it makes websites responsible for ensuring that content uploaded to their platforms doesn’t breach copyright. The updates will become law once member states enshrine the rules in legislation in their own countries.

>OK, but what does that mean?

The EU says the directive is about making “copyright rules fit for the digital era”. To comply with Article 13, platforms such as YouTube and Soundcloud will need to ensure that any copyrighted material on their sites is licensed, guaranteeing the original artist receives payment for its use.

>Why do we need it?

Rightsholders say that the rules will put an end to the days of pirating music and video online, and ensure artists receive a fair payment for their work. Supporters of the directive include musicians Debbie Harry and Paul McCartney.

President Trump told aides to deny that his internal polling showed him trailing former Vice President Joe Biden in key states, according to a new report from The New York Times.
Later, when the polling in 17 states conducted by Tony Fabrizio leaked, Trump told aides to tell reporters that other data showed him doing better, according to the Times story written by Annie Karni and Maggie Haberman.

The polling reportedly showed Trump behind Biden in a number of the states he needs to take to win reelection, though the Times report did not identify them.
“No one has ever asked us to lie about anything," a Trump campaign official told The Hill in a statement on Tuesday. "The poll in question shows President Trump beating a defined Democrat opponent.”
Beyond Trump's internal polling, a series of recent surveys have shown the president trailing Biden in several important states.
Last week, a Quinnipiac University poll found Biden 4 points ahead of Trump in Texas, a state Democrats haven't won in the presidential election since 1976.
A different poll released last week found Trump trailing Biden and several other 2020 Democrats in Michigan, a state he narrowly won in 2016.
Trump was the first Republican presidential candidate to win Michigan and Pennsylvania since 1988. He also won Wisconsin, the first time a Republican had taken that state since 1984.
If Trump were to lose those three states in 2020 and the Democratic nominee held the other states carried by Democrat Hillary Clinton in 2016, Trump would lose the Electoral College.
Trump has been focused on Biden, who has been the front-runner in the Democratic campaign so far. He and Biden will both be campaigning on Tuesday in Iowa, which will host the first caucuses early next year.

https://gizmodo.com/google-no-of-course-were-not-slowly-killing-ad-block-1835495590

A few months ago, Google announced changes were coming to improve privacy, security, and performance with regard to Chrome extensions. In particular, one change didn’t sit well with ad blocker developers, who claimed Google was looking to diminish their efficacy. At the time, at least one company threatened to pursue filing an antitrust complaint.

Yesterday, Google hit back with a blog that basically says, “Nuh uh. We’re not trying to kill ad blockers, we just want to make them safer.” At the core of the issue is the Web Request API. Google announced it was replacing some parts of that particular API with what it calls the Declarative Net Request API. In Google’s words, the change means an extension “does not need access to all a user’s sensitive data in order to block content.” It goes on to explain the current Web Request API requires users to grant permission for Chrome to pass along all information in a network request, and that can include private data such as emails and photos. However, the company claims the new API will allow extensions to block content without requiring users to give access to private data.

“There’s been a lot of confusion and misconception around both the motivations and implications of this change, including speculation that these changes were designed to prevent or weaken ad blockers,” Google writes in a separate blog detailing the differences between the two APIs. “This is absolutely not the goal. In fact, this change is meant to give developers a way to create safer and more performant ad blockers.”

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-mideast-tanker/two-oil-tankers-struck-in-suspected-attacks-in-gulf-of-oman-shipping-firms-idUSKCN1TE0OI

DUBAI (Reuters) - Two oil tankers were hit in suspected attacks in the Gulf of Oman, shipping firms and industry sources said on Thursday, sending oil prices as much as 4% higher a month after four other tankers were damaged by limpet mines in the region.

One of the tankers, the Front Altair, carrying a cargo of petrochemical feedstock, was ablaze in waters between Gulf Arab states and Iran.

Iran’s state news agency said it had sunk, although the Norwegian owner had said it was afloat and its crew were safe. The other tanker was adrift without any crew.

The Bahrain-based U.S. Navy Fifth Fleet said it was assisting the tankers after receiving distress calls. The United Kingdom Maritime Trade Operations, part of Britain’s Royal Navy, said it was investigating with its partners.

Full details about Thursday’s incident were not immediately clear. The firm which chartered one of the vessels said it suspected a torpedo had hit the ship, while a source said the other might have been damaged by a magnetic mine.

An investigation blamed limpet mines for last month’s attacks on four tankers. Saudi Arabia and the United States blamed Iran for those attacks, a charge Tehran denies.

Oil prices surged as much as 4% after Thursday’s news. The region was already on edge following attacks in May on Gulf oil assets that occurred amid a dispute between Iran and the United States over Tehran’s nuclear program.

Hillary was one of many people who voted from the Iraq War because the Bush administration sold it on fabricated data and Congress was collectively too stupid to suspect that the executive branch was lying out their ass.

But you don't need to identify Hillary's views on Iraq to extrapolate to her views on Iran, because she's made her position clear: she supports the JCPOA.
>>
>>412558
Well, foreign policy isn't generally decided by one person, it tends to come out of think tanks. Now, while I'm sure that Trump is the sort to ignore a think tank full of experts more educated and informed on the subject than he is and go off and do "his own thang", there was more than one group hinting towards the idea of using the JCPOA as a stop-gap measure, to get inspectors on the ground and make sure Iran didn't pick up nukes, before the situation with ISIS, Syria, and Yemen could wind down, which they now have. It did prevent Iran from getting nukes and get us a free eye on the inside, but it didn't address the more fundamental problem of conflicts of interests between it, the US, Israel, and the Saudis, and the various resulting proxy wars and skirmishes.

Seems more likely he killed the treaty just to piss on Obama's legacy and galvanize his base (given that seems to be his motive for near everything he does), but if being approached by such a proposal was also part of it, and that was just icing on the cake, Hillary, being the cold pragmatic bitch she is, might have gone the sane route (though I suspect she'd at least find some way to accuse Iran of violating the treaty, and thus not lose the sanction group in the process - bitch be evil, but she knows her stuff.)

https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/2020-election/why-hasn-t-trump-campaign-paid-all-its-police-security-n1016791?cid=public-rss_20190614

This story was originally published by The Center for Public Integrity, a nonprofit, nonpartisan investigative news organization in Washington, D.C.

WASHINGTON — "Do we love law enforcement or what?" President Donald Trump asked a cheering crowd during his "Make America Great Again" political rally Oct. 12 in Lebanon, Ohio.

"Thank you, law enforcement!" the president later told officers, who he called "heroes."

But when Lebanon City Hall sent Trump's campaign a $16,191 invoice for police and other public safety costs associated with his event, Trump didn't respond. Trump's campaign likewise ignored Lebanon officials' follow-up reminders to cover the sum — one rich enough to fund the entire police force for nearly two days in this modest city of 21,000, between Dayton and Cincinnati.

The bill remains unpaid.

"There's a lot of benefit when a president comes here: economic benefits, more visibility for our community," Lebanon Mayor Amy Brewer said. "But I would hope and believe the Trump campaign would pay its bills. It's our taxpayer dollars."

https://spacenews.com/house-armed-services-committee-votes-to-create-a-u-s-space-corps/

WASHINGTON — The House Armed Services Committee voted to establish a United States Space Corps within the Department of the Air Force. The vote came in the overnight hours Thursday. The committee began its markup of the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act Wednesday morning. After a nearly 21-hour session, the committee passed the NDAA 33-24.

The Space Corps amendment was offered by the HASC Strategic Forces subcommittee leaders Chairman Jim Cooper (D-Tenn.) and Ranking Member Mike Rogers (R-Ala.). The proposal is similar to what the committee proposed in the 2018 NDAA, including the name of the new space service, U.S. Space Corps, rather than the Trump administration’s preferred name, U.S. Space Force.

Like the Marine Corps, the Space Corps would be led by a four-star Commandant who would be a member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

The HASC amendment will have to be reconciled with the language in the Senate Armed Services Committee’s version of the 2020 NDAA, which authorizes a U.S. Space Force led by a four-star Commander.
>>
>>412468
According to the Cooper-Rogers amendment:

• The Space Corps will have personnel and assets transferred by the Air Force but may not include the personnel or assets of the National Reconnaissance Office or the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency.

• The Space Corps will he organized, trained, and equipped to provide freedom of operation for the United States in, from and to space. The Space Corps will “protect the interests of the United States in space; deter aggression, from and to space and conduct space operations.”

• The secretary of the Air Force may establish a separate, alternative acquisition system for defense space acquisitions. The Deputy Secretary of Defense will submit the plan to the congressional defense committees. The alternative acquisition system will cover defense space acquisitions except those overseen by the intelligence community.

• The secretary of defense can transfer to the Space Corps “functions, assets and obligations of the space elements of the Air Force (including all property, records, installations, activities, facilities, agencies and projects). Personnel that can be transferred include commissioned officers and enlisted members of the space elements of the Air Force.

• While the SASC language sets a one-year transition period for the Space Force to figure out its organization, the HASC bill says the transition period begins on January 1, 2021; and ends not later than December 31, 2023.

• The secretary of defense shall submit to the congressional defense committees a report that includes a detailed plan for the organizational structure of the Space Corps, and how the Space Corps will coordinate with the United States Space Command, the Space Development Agency, and other space elements of the armed forces.

Trump muses about how he'd "probably" listen to dirt on an opponent if presented to him by foreigners... liberals spit and froth as usual about how that is indisputable proof he is compromised... JUST in time for Trump to expose how the Clinton campaign did exactly that!

I think I’d take it’: In exclusive interview, Trump says he would listen if foreigners offered dirt on opponents


President Trump said in an interview that he would accept foreign information on political opponents, saying “they all do it.”

Mr. Trump told George Stephanopoulos of ABC News that the origin of opposition research would not overly concern him and that he may or may not go to the FBI if such an offer came from abroad.

“Someone comes up and says ‘hey, I have information on your opponent.’ You call the FBI?” he said in a video clip posted Wednesday by ABC News. “Give me a break. Life doesn’t work like that.”

He denied Mr. Stephanopoulos’s claim that taking information from foreigners constitutes collusion with their interference in U.S. elections.

“It’s not an interference. They have information. I think I’d take it,” he said.

Sure is Boomer in that list. Apparently you can't separate opinion, editorialization, and news. It's mainly old farts that watch broadcast or cable television anymore.

Anyone who thinks Fox News is balanced are on some of the best drugs known to man. They prop up dummy Dems so that their far right pundits can “totally pwn the libs”. They are by far the most egregiously imbalanced networks on TV. How do I know this? Exactly zero democrats watch Fox News.

So the democratic opposition they do have on that network are controlled so that they come off as balanced but in reality are only there so that their slightly less brainwashed viewers are coddled into a sense of hearing the other side. And most of their Dems are castrated and ineffective.

Most of the time the network is pounding home insane far right bollycock for their mindless viewers. Not even CNN gets away with such outright fabrications of reality.

This accounts for the first 100 days of Trumps presidency, btw. Back when Rupert Murdoch wasn’t sure if Old trump would live up to his campaign of draining the swamp.

Now that it’s clear he’s one of the most grossly pro rich presidents since the 1800s, Murdoch has changed his assignment for the network.

Coverage of the president over 100 days = Complete political stance of a news agency that covers more than just this presidency?
Interesting.
