>Colorado store closing after removing Nike merchandise over Kaepernick ad
A store in Colorado will be closing down after more than 20 years in business after its decision to stop selling Nike merchandise.

The store, Prime Time Sports, first made headlines in September when it announced it would pull Nike merchandise to protest the company's decision to feature former NFL player Colin Kaepernick as the face of its ad campaign.

Stephen Martin, Prime Time's owner, told a local NBC station that he made the decision to close the store permanently on Sunday night, saying he “can’t keep the doors open anymore.”

“Being a sports store without Nike is kind of like being a milk store without milk or a gas station without gas. How do you do it? They have a monopoly on jerseys,” Martin told the station.

Martin said he realized last year that he could go out of business over the decision to remove Nike merchandise, given that a sizable chunk of his inventory was NFL jerseys that are exclusive to Nike.

Martin, at the time, called the brand was "the mother of all harlots." Martin added that although Kaepernick "sacrificed a salary," nothing "compared to what every soul on our 'Honor the Flag' memorial wall that was built a few years ago has suffered and died for. "

He told KOAA News 5 this week that he canceled an autograph session at his store with former Denver Broncos player Brandon Marshall in 2016 to protest the athlete’s decision to take a knee during the national anthem.

In an excerpt of the full interview, which is set to air on Sunday, McCabe described how he quickly moved to start the Russia probe a day after meeting with Trump in May 2017 in the days after James Comey's firing, over fears that he would soon be fired. After authorizing the investigation into Trump's Russia ties, McCabe sought to ensure that the investigation - which was eventually rolled into the probe eventually taken over by Special Counsel Robert Mueller - would be on "solid ground" even if he was booted from the FBI.


McCabe, whose wife took a truckload of campaign cash from a top Clinton donor and confidant, colluded with Clinton campaign contractors and the foreign bagman of a sanctioned Russian oligarch to try and take down a duly elected U.S. president.

Put in the context of FBI agents vowing to be the last line of defense vs our own president, the McCabe revelations are troubling evidence the FBI was engaging in a low-energy #Coup.

In other words the head of the @FBI is confessing publicly he assumed Trump was guilty without any evidence and started an investigation for no reason but partisan hackery ...... and saw nothing Hillary did as suspicious

>A group of students, who the Student Association says were at the party where they say the assault happened, released a statement in part saying:

>"Three of our fellow students of color were assaulted by a group of three Caucasian males and one Causcasian female wielding a weapon."

>It goes on to say a racial slur was made and one of the victims was hit in the face, and others were hit in the head with a silver metal pistol.

>"You just don't call somebody a slur and attack them then it's not related, so just for them to automatically rule this out as a hate crime is just unacceptable," said Payton-Jackson.

There seems to be a large discrepancy in what's being reported

I know some pretty fucked up college kids, but I highly doubt these people "had no connection" or were doing it because the people were black. The fact that the female was pistol whipping guys makes it even more suspect, given how the adrenal system of guys can make them do berserk shit when pushed to the limit. Lastly, I highly doubt that these people were trying to get into the house. 4 vs. +10 is not winning odds by anyone's standards, and if they were gonna go in with the intention of shooting, what was stopping the female from just shooting in the first place instead of pistol whipping?

>NEW YORK/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort breached his plea agreement with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office by lying to prosecutors about matters which are material to its Russia probe, a judge ruled on Wednesday.

>The ruling concludes weeks of wrangling between Manafort’s lawyers and the special counsel over whether he had intentionally lied to prosecutors, impeding their investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election and possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign.

>U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson, who is overseeing the Manafort case in a Washington court, found there was a “preponderance” of evidence that Manafort lied on three different topics, including his communications with his former business partner Konstantin Kilimnik, whom prosecutors say has ties to Russian intelligence. Kilimnik has denied such ties.

>Jackson cleared Manafort of allegations that he intentionally lied on two other subjects - Kilimnik’s role in an obstruction of justice charge and statements Manafort made about his contacts with members of the Trump administration.

>Nevertheless, the ruling will almost certainly dash Manafort’s hopes of avoiding significant time in prison, as Mueller’s prosecutors are now released from their obligation to support a lighter sentence. Sentencing experts have said Manafort, 69, could face a decade in prison.

>Michael Zeldin, a former federal prosecutor, said one possible reason Manafort chose to lie was because he was hoping for a presidential pardon — echoing speculation raised by one of Mueller’s prosecutors at a court hearing last week.

Given how Trump treated Cohen like shit as he was sending up every 'help me' signal possible and how he only gives a shit about him self. Trump doesn't give a shit if Manafort rots in jail. The fact that his plead bargain was torn up means he's no longer a creditable witness so even if Manafort does decide to side with America over Russia and testify against Trump, his testimony and information is worthless because he's already deemed a liar.

Prosecutors recommend Manafort 19-24 years in prison

"As an initial matter, the government agrees with the guidelines analysis in the Presentence Investigation Report (PSR) and its calculation of the defendant’s Total Offense Level as 38 with a corresponding range of imprisonment of 235 to 293 months, a fine range of $50,000 to $24,371,497.74, a term of supervised release of up to five years, restitution in the amount of $24,815,108.74, and forfeiture in the amount of $4,412,500."

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/patriot-prayer-leader-joey-gibson-text-messages-portland-police-jeff-niiya/

The commander for the police rapid response team in Portland, Oregon, seems to have exchanged friendly text messages with a leader of far-right protests that have rocked the city. One city council member said the messages, which were first reported by a newspaper, confirms collusion exists between some police and right-wing extremists.
"I am not shocked, and I am not surprised at today's reporting of Lt. Jeff Niiya's collaboration with Patriot Prayer leader Joey Gibson over text to provide aid and support for their hate marches," Councilwoman Jo Ann Hardesty said in a statement. Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler called the messages "disturbing" and said he directed Police Chief Danielle Outlaw "to do a thorough investigation of this matter and report back to me expeditiously."

Willamette Week obtained text messages through a public records request between Niiya and Gibson. The texts purportedly show Niiya had a friendly rapport with Gibson, frequently discussing Gibson's plans to demonstrate.
In one text reported by the newspaper, Niiya tells Gibson that he doesn't see a need to arrest his assistant, Tusitala Toese, who often brawls with antifascist protesters, even if he has a warrant, unless Toese commits a new crime. "Just make sure he doesn't do anything which may draw our attention," Niiya texted Gibson on Dec. 9, 2017, according to Willamette Week. "If he still has the warrant in the system (I don't run you guys so I don't personally know) the officers could arrest him. I don't see a need to arrest on the warrant unless there is a reason."

Not quite the same, but they used a bike lock of good will. Sure it didn't kill anyone, but there was certainly the potential.

Also until deaths become common, I really don't think it is fair to judge any one group by the derangement of an individual in an isolated event. That said, the people who perpetrate the acts of violence should be dealt with as the dangerous people they are by the law. But hey, if you want to be bigoted, that's on you. Not my place to judge

The Associated Press:

Mideast conference in Poland starting Wednesday offers Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu an opportunity to flaunt in public what he has long boasted about happening behind the scenes - his country's improved relations with some Gulf Arab nations.


The United States and Poland are sponsoring the conference in Warsaw, which they say is aimed at promoting peace and security in the region but appears to be mainly focused on isolating Iran.


The Palestinians have pre-emptively rejected the plan, accusing the Trump White House of being unfairly biased toward Israel. They've also asked Arab countries to boycott or downgrade their representation at the conference in Poland.

“We view the Warsaw conference as a plot against the Palestinian cause,” Palestinian Foreign Minister Riad Malki said this week.

President Mahmoud Abbas met with Saudi Arabia's King Salman on Tuesday, who expressed his “permanent stand” in favour of a Palestinian state with east Jerusalem as its capital, according to the official Saudi news agency.

•Over 40% of insect species are threatened with extinction.

•Lepidoptera, Hymenoptera and dung beetles (Coleoptera) are the taxa most affected.

•Four aquatic taxa are imperiled and have already lost a large proportion of species.

•Habitat loss by conversion to intensive agriculture is the main driver of the declines.

•Agro-chemical pollutants, invasive species and climate change are additional causes.

A new study tells the catastrophic story of the world's massive decline in insect numbers.

Two Australian scientists have looked into the drivers behind the devastating losses with their results published in the April edition of Biological Conservation.

The study warns that more than 40% of insect species could become extinct in the next few decades if behaviors aren’t quickly changed. World insect biomass is disappearing a rate of 2.5% a year.

not him but i don't think you have to have an agenda or a degree in biology to see the effect the human species has had on the earth throughout history, esp in the last couple of hundred years.
pointing this effect out isn't a moral judgement, is simply stating the fact.
as to whether he's right about human extinction being a probable outcome - who really knows, but it's naive to imagine we're somehow outside of nature and immune to the laws inherent in it. we're just animals after all - sophisticated with our tech and (supposedly) capable of rational action, but still just animals.

President Trump will sign a border security bill to avert another government shutdown, but also declare a national emergency to obtain funds for his promised U.S.-Mexico border wall, McConnell said on Thursday.

In an attempt to bypass Congress to get money that lawmakers have denied him for his wall, Trump appeared headed toward triggering a swift court challenge from Democrats on constitutional grounds.

“I’ve just had an opportunity to speak to President Trump and he, I would say to all my colleagues, has indicated he is prepared to sign the bill,” McConnell said on the Senate floor. “He will also be issuing a national emergency declaration at the same time and I’ve indicated to him that I’m going to support a national emergency declaration."

The bipartisan legislation would provide more than $300 billion to fund the Department of Homeland Security and a range of other federal agencies through Sept. 30, the end of the current fiscal year. Funding is due to expire for those agencies on Friday.

Congress was expected later on Thursday to approve the legislation, which does not contain the money Trump demanded for the wall but does contain money for other border security measures.

The bill faces votes in the Republican-led Senate and Democratic-controlled House of Representatives before going to Trump, who triggered a 35-day-long shutdown of about a quarter of the federal government with his December demand for $5.7 billion to help build a portion of the wall.

In denying him that money, Congress has blocked Trump from carrying through on one of his key 2016 campaign pledges.

The border bill would provide $1.37 billion in new money to help build 55 miles (88.5 km) of new physical barriers on the border. It is the same level of funding Congress appropriated for border security measures last year, including barriers but not concrete walls.

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/congress/the-mysterious-case-of-aocs-scrubbed-green-new-deal-details
On Feb. 5, the congressional office of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez posted a new blog entry under “energy issues” detailing her "Green New Deal" proposal and answering “frequently asked questions.”

The page, announcing an 8:30 a.m. launch on Feb. 7, is now gone, and a top adviser suggested Friday it was actually authored and distributed by the GOP.

By the afternoon of Feb. 7, Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., removed the document from her website without explanation but following backlash and even ridicule over the radical plans outlined within it, including a call to "eliminate emissions from cows or air travel" — which would functionally ban the latter — and to provide “economic security for all who are unable or unwilling to work.”

The document vanished just hours after Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., formally unveiled a "Green New Deal" resolution that has so far attracted 67 Democratic co-sponsors in the House. It’s a nonbinding measure that is less detailed than the now-deleted FAQ document but calls for a complete and speedy overhaul of the nation’s energy, transportation, and farming sectors in order to eliminate carbon emissions in the coming decades.

The communications staff has so far not responded to an inquiry about the now-missing blog post.

Okay so in Frederick Maryland there is a school called Urbana Middle, and an assult took place after school over a juul.
A 6th grader with high functioning autism told the teacher that a 7th grader was juuling. The teacher then took the 7th graders juul.
After school the 7th grader got some of his friends and waiting till they were out of school so they could confront and assult the 6th grader.
The 7th graders broke the 6th graders arm and one of the kids recorded the assult and put it on his snapchat story.
What do you guys think?

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and future president Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) want to turn the screws on greedy corporations. On Monday morning, the New York Times published an op-ed in which the senators tee off on corporate stock buybacks while teasing new legislation that would ensure companies invest in their employees before padding the pockets of their shareholders.

“At a time of huge income and wealth inequality, Americans should be outraged that these profitable corporations are laying off workers while spending billions of dollars to boost their stock’s value to further enrich the wealthy few,” the senators write. “If corporations continue to purchase their own stock at this rate, income disparities will continue to grow, productivity will suffer, the long-term strength of companies will diminish — and the American worker will fall further behind.”

When a company uses its profits to buy its own stock, it’s not investing in research and development, increasing employee wages and benefits or other measures that strengthen the company as a whole. Instead, buybacks only serve to increase the stock’s value by reducing the number of publicly available shares. The only beneficiaries are corporate executives and wealthy shareholders. In other words, the rich get richer. It’s getting worse, too. As the senators note, 466 of the S&P 500 companies combined to spend $4 trillion on stock buybacks between 2008 and 2018. A quarter of that came in the last year alone, the result of the massive corporate tax cut Trump signed late in 2017. Remember? The one that was supposed to benefit working-class Americans? This hasn’t happened, of course. From December 2017 to December 2018, wages for average Americans have increased by $9.11 a week.

Okay, >>354978 again, I reread the article and the underlying Oxfam paper and the analysis is not as one-dimensional as I originally thought. Still, I find the the author's choice of "market-failure prone industries" rather suspect: it rolls up the most profitable industries over the last few decades (such as finance and IT) and simply concludes that all wealth generated in these industries over "competitive industries" was done so through rent-seeking.

If anyone else is interested I believe the sources are here:

ROME - Ahead of a summit of presidents of bishops’ conferences and other Church officials in Rome Feb. 21-24 on clerical sexual abuse and child protection, voices from around the world are emphasizing that it’s a global problem requiring a global solution.

For instance, Rogelio Cabrera, Archbishop of Monterrey, Mexico, president of the country’s bishops’ conference, said on Sunday that in the past nine years 152 priests have been removed from ministry in his country due to sexual abuse allegations.
