WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Senate impeachment trial on whether to remove U.S. President Donald Trump from office formally began on Thursday even as a congressional watchdog found that the White House broke the law by withholding security aid for Ukraine approved by Congress.

The assessment from the nonpartisan Government Accountability Office was a setback for Trump, even though it was unclear if it would figure in his trial in the Republican-led Senate given that key issues such as whether witnesses will appear or new evidence will be considered remain up in the air.

Democrat Adam Schiff, who heads a team of seven House of Representatives members who will serve as prosecutors, appeared on the Senate floor to read the two charges passed by the House on Dec. 18 accusing Trump of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress arising from his dealings with Ukraine.

Chief Justice John Roberts, wearing his black judicial robe, was led onto the Senate floor by four senior lawmakers. He took an oath to preside over the trial and then swore in the assembled senators, instructing them to raise their right hand, asking, “Do you solemnly swear that in all things appertaining to the trial of the impeachment of Donald John Trump, president of the United States, now pending you will do impartial justice according to the Constitution and laws, so help you God?”

The 99 senators present signed their assent one by one. One senator - Republican Jim Inhofe - was in his home state of Oklahoma to be with a family member facing a medical issue, according to his office, but was due to sign later in the day.

>trump is a “known Russian agent”
Nope. Suspected. His obstruction of justice has kept us from the “known” part.
He wouldn't obstruct justice if he wasn't one.
Also the way how he's Putin's Cock Holster where a vast majority of his actions benefit Russia doesn't help people who say he's not Putin's Puppet.

Apocalyptic scenes give glimpse of what would be normal conditions in 3C world

The bushfires ravaging Australia are a clear sign of what is to come around the world if temperatures are allowed to rise to dangerous levels, according to scientists.

“This is what you can expect to happen … at an average of 3C [above pre-industrial levels],” said Richard Betts, professor of geography at Exeter University. “We are seeing a sign of what would be normal conditions in a 3C world. It tells us what the future world might look like. This really brings home what climate change means.”

Average temperature rises in Australia were about 1.4C above pre-industrial levels before this season’s fires, showing a more rapid rate of heating than the global average of 1.1C.

Scientists warn that beyond a rise of 2C, the impacts of climate breakdown are likely to become catastrophic and irreversible, yet current global commitments to cut greenhouse gas emissions under the Paris agreement are estimated to put the world on track for 3C of heating.

“These are the impacts we are seeing at 1C [of heating] so these impacts will get more [severe] as long as we do not do what it takes to stabilise the world climate,” warned Corinne Le Quéré, professor of climate change science and policy at the University of East Anglia (UEA). “This is not a new normal – this is a transition to more impacts.”

Lies, and you know it. Besides, natural or not, the fact that fire conditions are this high is proof we've fucked up as a species.
Anyone who genuinely believes in intentional arson behind the bushfires needs to walk into them while taking deep breaths.

Fires have been a natural event since the beginning of time. The arsonists are trying to accelerate the issue.

Your flat denial exposes your bias.

The fact Australia has something called a fire season should be evidence enough.

Only idiots would think shit lightbulbs and paying taxes will stop hurricanes, floods and forest fires.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson told Russian President Vladimir Putin that there will be no normalization of relations between the two countries until Moscow ceases its "destabilizing activities that threaten the security" of Britain and its allies, Reuters writes January 19.

A spokeswoman for the British prime minister’s office said that Johnson met with Putin on the sidelines of the Libyan summit in Berlin, where they discussed the need to address security issues in Syria, Iraq and Iran.

"He made it clear that Britain’s position on Salisbury has not changed - it was a reckless use of chemical weapons and an audacious attempt to kill innocent people in the UK. He said that such an attack should not be repeated," the spokeswoman said.

The Salisbury incident occurred in March 2018. Then, ex-GRU ex-employee Sergei Skripal and his daughter Julia were found unconscious on a park bench.

British authorities later said they were poisoned with the nerve agent Novichok, and Russia was behind the attack. Moscow has repeatedly denied these allegations.

A deaf man from Brooklyn is moaning that he can’t fully enjoy videos on Pornhub because they don’t provide closed captioning – so he has filed a class-action lawsuit alleging the site is in violation of federal law.

Yaroslav Suris claims the porn site has violated his and others’ rights under the Americans with Disabilities Act because the deaf and hearing-impaired can’t understand the audio portion of the skin flicks.

As part of MindGeek, Pornhub makes up one of several adult websites in the company’s network, along with YouPorn and RedTube, which also are named in the lawsuit.

Suris tried to watch a variety of videos on the three sites, including “Hot Step Aunt Babysits Disobedient Nephew – Sofi Ryan – Family Therapy,” “Sexy Cop Gets Witness To Talk,” “A – – – Lesbian Action and Dirty Talk” and “18 YO Blonde Stripper Samantha DP In Homemade Gangbang Porn.”

But their lack of closed captioning stripped him of his enjoyment, he lawsuit claims.

“The websites are ‘places of public accommodation’ which deny equal access to their video content which is available to hearing individuals and violates the ADA,” according to the lawsuit.

Good for him! Sue them. Everybody should sue them and any porn site making millions off of naive dumb sluts. I'm thinking about suing xHamster for not having a suitable amount of videos of hamsters being shoved into people's cavities and vaginas.

Six tourists arrested after feces found in sacred Machu Picchu area


Lima (AFP)

Six tourists, including a French woman, have been arrested over accusations that they damaged Peru's cultural heritage by defecating in a sacred temple at the iconic Machu Picchu sanctuary.

"The six tourists are being detained and investigated by the public ministry for the alleged crime against cultural heritage," Cusco regional police chief Wilbert Leyva said on Monday, quoted by the local Andina news agency.

The tourists were arrested on Sunday after park rangers and police found them in a restricted area of the Temple of the Sun, an important site at the Inca citadel.

Leyva said authorities had come across a "fracture" in a piece of stone that had "broken off a wall and caused a crack in the floor."

The world's shortest man who could walk, as verified by Guinness World Records (GWR), has died at a hospital in Nepal at the age of 27.

Khagendra Thapa Magar, from Nepal's Baglung district, measured 67.08cm (2ft 2.41in).

His brother told AFP news agency he died on Friday following a battle with pneumonia.

GWR paid tribute to Mr Magar, saying he "didn't let his small size stop him from getting the most out of life".

Mr Magar was recognised as the world's smallest man on his 18th birthday in 2010, at a ceremony attended by local and international dignitaries.

"I don't consider myself to be a small man. I'm a big man. I hope that having this title enables me to prove it and get a proper house for me and my family," he said at the time.

GWR has two categories for people of short stature - mobile and non-mobile. Filipino Junrey Balawing, who is unable to walk or stand unaided, is the world's shortest non-mobile man, measuring 59.93cm.

A recently published report describes the case of an 11-day-old female neonate who died due to acute marijuana toxicity and highlights the need for more research on the impact of marijuana use on pregnancy outcomes.

How in the fuck is this a valid news source?
Anyone who believes this is a retarded cuck. This is just the pharmaceutical industry getting scared as shit cannabis is about to be legal and cut into the profits of harmful drugs like Xanax.

Using drugs during pregnancy I dont agree with but, marijuana "toxcitiy" is a complete fabrication.

The government didnt want anyone studying cannabis for years, would not fund it, or let anyone do it - and now they wanna say OH WE NEED MORE RESEARCH CAUSE UH...WE JUST DONT KNOW.

You mean the research we were trying to do for the past 50 years that proves that cannabis is a more effective medicine than all the poisonus pharms out there... Yeah. Dont be a fucking retard.
Anyone who drinks or does drugs while pregnant is a fucking retard and isn't fit to be a parent.

That baby is lucky not to have to deal with having such a shitty person as a mother.
What was the chemical compound and how is it reaching the blood vessels without also injuring the mother? Does the father have to avoid mixing with the mother to prevent a cancer from growing?

This sounds like a bad epiaode of house.
>without also injuring the mother?
toxicity always depends on the entire organism; a newborn infant can be killed with a dose that would leave most adults without any damage
that's essentially how chemotherapy works

A Ukrainian man nearly lost his genitals after his wife put him in a painful DIY chastity belt for being unfaithful.

The unnamed man in his 40’s, from the city of Zaporizhia, in southern Ukraine, told doctors that he woke up one morning earlier this week to find a big metal nut screwed onto his wiener. It had been “installed” by his wife, as a way to stop him from being unfaithful, but the man claimed that it was strangulating his organ. He tried removing it himself, but the nut didn’t budge, so he had no choice but to call an ambulance.

Unfortunately for the desperate man, hospital staff could do little to help with his delicate problem, so a specialist team of rescuers were called in. They used a circular saw to slice the piece of metal in two, while pouring water on it to keep it from overheating because of the friction. There wasn’t too much they could do about the sparks, so the patient just had to endure.

“We received a call from doctors who asked to remove the nut,” rescuer Oleksandr Brienko said. “We used special equipment to do the job. The man was lying on the surgical operating table under anaesthesia while we were cutting the object off.”

“We often face similar incidents and are quite trained in removing rings, handcuffs and other objects off people’s bodies. In this case, we actually saved the man’s penis. He will be able to become a father in the future,” fellow rescuer Eduard Nekhoroshev added.

The Ukrainian man is currently being treated in the hospital, but is expected to make a full recovery. According to local media reports, he is considering asking for a divorce.

The federal government is once again “asking” Apple to break into an encrypted iPhone that was once owned by a now-deceased murderer and which contains what officials insist may be vital information — information that, without Apple’s technical intervention, will remain hidden from investigators’ view.

The request — it’s really a demand, and it's one that the feds have made before — can only be granted by Apple if the company makes all of its iPhone customers less safe.

To its credit, Apple has resisted this demand, as it has on similar occasions in the past.

The government's current request is related to the Saudi Arabian cadet who was training with the U.S. military in Pensacola, Florida. He killed three people and wounded eight more before he was shot and killed, according to official accounts. Apple, in response to requests from law enforcement, turned over the cadet's data it could retrieve from both its iCloud service and his online transactions.

The government — as it has in the past — wants more. In a complex ecosystem of hardware, software, storage and communications, officials want Apple (and Facebook, Google and every technology company that provides encrypted devices and software) to build what technologists call “back doors into those products and services.

3 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Apple's willingness to make sure that it is locked out of its customers' devices gets to the crux of a genuine security dilemma — which people like Barr continue to treat as a mere roadblock to robust law enforcement. Strong encryption is a yes-or-no matter: If it’s strong, and if there are no other weaknesses someone can exploit, it cannot be broken (at least in the near future). But, if you create the back door the government wants — purportedly to be used only by the “good guys” — you by definition create a weakness that can and will be exploited by the bad guys, just like a physical back door can be breached by a person dedicated to breaking into a building. This isn’t an opinion; it is mathematics, as encryption experts can attest.

That hasn't, however, stopped officials from ordering technologists to generate magic equations that break the basic laws of mathematics — which is what members of the Senate Judiciary Committee are threatening to do. In a hearing last month, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., a former prosecutor who often demonstrates fundamental contempt for civil liberties, teamed with Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., to warn the tech industry that if it didn’t find a way to provide the good-guys-only method of breaking into Americans' phones, Congress would order it to do so.

But the reality is that if Feinstein, Barr and the Trump administration get their way, they will ultimately compromise the safety of digital communications for almost everyone — not just the people who commit crimes.

And even if they could bludgeon U.S.-based companies into making communications and storage less secure for American consumers, their powers do not extend past our borders — but people's access to apps does. Would they then outlaw Americans' use of software written elsewhere, or products created collaboratively via the “open source” method and which weren't deliberately made weak?
Law enforcement has always operated under some restraints in the United States of America; they're built into our Bill of Rights, for the protection of all Americans. The ability to own communication devices that don't provide admin access to every law enforcement agency in the country is currently one such right — and it should remain one, for all our sakes.
Reminder that Barr was again implicated in the criminal conspirator with Ukraine and one of the main enablers for Trump's criminal behavior in the White House.
What does Barr know about Epstein?
Seeing as the tapes got mysteriously deleted, he was in a DOJ facility controlled by Barr, and that he visited Epstein shortly before his death. NOTHING AT ALL DONT ASK

Tired of her husband’s drinking habit, a Mexican woman decided to make him think he had become allergic to booze by lacing his beers with natural laxatives like castor oil and plum extract.

After consulting various internet pages and forums, Michel N., a young woman from Sinaloa, devised a plan to make her husband, José Brayan, quit drinking. She managed to get a hold on a mixture of castor oil and plum extract and started putting a few drops of it into his beer bottles, to achieve a mild, gradual laxative effect. José later told police that he found it a bit strange when his wife offered to pop open his beer and bring it to him whenever he needed one, but he simply “let himself be loved and pampered”.

As the natural laxatives started working their magic on José ‘s bowels, his wife tried to convince him that the diarrhea was a sign of allergy, most likely to alcohol. But the man didn’t let himself be scared into quitting his beer habit, instead popping a stomach pill and continuing to drink as usual. He even jokingly told Michel that the bathroom was a short distance away, so there was no problem.

That is a stupid woman not a mexican woman.
What is the difference?
Shes stupid for confessing. She could have just had a husband that never drank beer again but now he's going to get worse and she's getting a ticket which he will have to pay.

8 weeks to find him and 4 weeks for forging. Not like he needs heirloom swords for this, some pig iron weaboo shit would do the job for one fight. Pay-per-view can cover court costs and attorneys fees
Sounds about right.
Forged and Fire could have a special episode just for him. The final blade at the end of the episode (that bladesmiths have 5 days to forge) is used for the duel
well no dude the more civilized idea isnt to kill the other person, rather just to establish dominance and victory and end the dispute. for example, you smoke your dumbass bitch ex wife in the forehead with a rubber bullet, you get off of child support and alimony scot free, she gets a big ol welt and a bruise for three weeks, case closed

Slick ads on social media offer less of the guns-and-grunts messaging of decades past. Instead they play up college benefits and career training in medical and tech fields.
However, those jobs will be dead ends since anti-american liberals prefer to out source IT job to foreign nationals that are basically slaves rather then hire local citizens that they need to pay fair wages.

Correct. The results are likely skewed left. Meaning even more right wing retards are soaking up conspiracy theorists like Hannity. You make a good point anon.
why no longer feeling so generous towards your fellow man?
