Former national security adviser Michael Flynn has provided "substantial" aid in the Russia investigation and beyond — and that merits a judge's consideration at Flynn's sentencing this month, prosecutors said in court papers late Tuesday.

The government said in a memo to a federal judge that it believes sentencing for Flynn should be lenient and that even a sentence without prison time "is appropriate and warranted."

Prosecutors say Flynn helped with "several ongoing investigations," not just the Russia inquiry, including a redacted criminal investigation. Authorities say some of Flynn's help may not have yet borne fruit but they've asked a judge to sentence him anyway as had been planned on Dec. 18.

Prosecutors wrote that Flynn offered "firsthand information about the content and context of interactions between [Donald Trump's] transition team and Russian government officials" on two sensitive matters: a United Nations resolution about Israeli settlements and the then-outgoing Obama administration's sanctions on Russia for interfering in the 2016 presidential election.

"Several senior members of the transition team publicly repeated false information conveyed to them by the defendant about communications between him and the Russian ambassador regarding the sanctions," the court document says.

The following sentence is redacted, as are several other parts of the document. The document hails Flynn's cooperation with prosecutors but many of the details are obscured.

On the whole, authorities said Flynn cooperated early and was "particularly valuable because he was one of the few people with long-term and firsthand insight" regarding matters being investigated by the special counsel's office.

His work with the government included 19 interviews with special counsel lawyers or others at the Justice Department.

LAWMAKERS PROPOSE SOCIAL MEDIA HATE SPEECH CHECKS BEFORE GUN PURCHASES

Lawmakers in New York have begun drafting legislation that would require potential gun owners to have the past three years of their social media reviewed before they were granted permission to own a firearm.

Eric Adams, the president of Brooklyn Borough, and state Senator Kevin Palmer are currently writing the proposed legislation, which would give law enforcement authorities the power to check up to three years of an individual’s social media accounts and internet search history before they are allowed to buy a gun, WCBS Newsradio 880 reported. One of the main aims is to identify any hate speech shared by the users, as the politicians noted that such offensive comments are generally only discovered after mass shootings occur.

“A three-year review of a social media profile would give an easy profile of a person who is not suitable to hold and possess a firearm,” Adams explained, according to the WCBS report.

“If the police department is reviewing a gang assault, a robbery, some type of shooting, they go and do a social media profile investigation,” the borough president pointed out.

One more reason not to be on social media, especially Facebook.

At some point if it's too weird for someone to have zero hits when google I might get a WordPress account and do a blog on something tame like /out/ or /ck/, I favour something like a published blog or photo album (Flickr) versus something with a higher user interaction -- that could be troublesome in that no matter how careful you are, your family and friends could screw things up.

Osaka, Japan, Ends Ties With San Francisco In Protest Of 'Comfort Women' Statue

The mayor of Osaka, Japan, is ending its "sister city" relationship with San Francisco this week, following a dispute over a statue that honors women and girls who were sexually enslaved by Japan's Imperial Army during World War II.

The Column of Strength memorial consists of three women in bronze who are holding hands in a circle as they look into the distance. An older woman stands to the side.

The statue commemorates "comfort women," a euphemism for thousands who were forced, coerced and deceived into serving men at brothels near the front lines.

But the monument's inscriptions about the comfort women "present uncertain and one-sided claims as historical facts," Osaka Mayor Hirofumi Yoshimura contended in a 10-page letter dated Tuesday to Mayor London Breed of San Francisco.

https://www.cnbc.com/2018/11/30/six-white-house-officials-violated-the-hatch-act-with-political-tweets.html

>WASHINGTON – Six Trump White House officials violated the Hatch Act by using their official government social media accounts to engage in political activity, according to a ruling issued Friday by an internal government watchdog agency

>The staffers cited include Trump's executive assistant Madeleine Westerhout; principal White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah; deputy communications director Jessica Ditto; Vice President Mike Pence's press secretary Alyssah Farrah; former White House director of media affairs Helen Aguirre Ferré, who left in August; and Jacob Wood, a deputy communications director at the Office of Management and Budget.

>None of the officials will face disciplinary action for these violations, the Office of Special Counsel wrote in a letter Friday. (This agency is different from the Justice Department Special Counsel's Office, which is led by Robert Mueller.) Instead, each of the aides has been advised that "if in the future they engage in prohibited political activity ... we will consider such activity to be a willful and knowing violation of the law, which could result in further action."

>Signed into law in 1939, the Hatch Act bars employees of the executive branch from using their official positions to actively support or oppose any candidate for federal office. This can mean making political speeches for a candidate, sending letters or endorsements, or publicly promoting one party over another. The president and vice president, however, are exempt from the restrictions. When the OSC finds that employees have violated the Hatch Act, the consequences are typically minimal, and usually consist of a warning or sometimes a remedial briefing on the rules.

>Friday's rulings were issued in response to formal complaints filed by the Committee for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, a nonprofit public interest watchdog group.

I know how you guys like to pretend that things aren't simple to put into categories anymore but being corrupt is not "grey", in fact it's pretty "black". Most things also aren't "grey" just because you're okay with them. A man stealing bread to fee his family is bad, him paying it back is good. You don't mix the two together because they are separate acts.

>>323263

'Anymore'? They never were. Look at history, humans are complicated and have complex social interactions/hierarchies. Morality is completely subjective. A man stealing food to survive is not necessarily 'black'. Survival is the top priority of any animal, humans included. Are you saying someone should let themselves starve (suicide) rather than find a means to survive (potentially stealing food)? Just because that man doesn't have the means in that society to buy or acquire food, doesn't mean he is evil, or bad. People can be born into poverty and it can be very hard to get out. Things aren't 'gray' because people feel they are. Events, decisions, and actions are 'gray' because there will always be someone who views them as 'white', and someone who views them as 'black'. Not to mention those who will simply choose not to label events as 'white' or 'black', 'good' or 'evil'. Events are, they happen. Personally, what matters to me is why they happen. What set of circumstances led to the event? You have to mix the acts together, because one leads to the other. Events in people's lives are not disconnected actions floating in space. Everything is a product of what came before. Did the man steal the food because he likes the thrill of the taboo? Is his family starving and he has no options? Is there a famine, driving food prices up so that only the societally favored can eat? Or was it simply an impulse, where there was an opportunity to easily steal something, and he did it, even if he didn't need it?

Your ideas on morality are naive at best. Things aren't black and white just because you disagree or agree with them. It's the society that decides as a whole what events they tolerate, accept, or perform, and what events they decide are unnecessary, unwanted, or deplorable. These have changed throughout history, change continuously today, and will change in the future. There is no absolute truth in morality, only what you decide to accept as true.

A Winter Haven man was arrested on Thursday after posting on his Facebook page that he was going to shoot members of Congress and their families, depending on which way the Supreme Court justice confirmation vote went.

According to the affidavit, the threats included the following statements:

"Just bought 12 boxes of hollow point 50 caliber bullets....have plenty of ammo for my sniper rifle and bought a suppressor. Have made sure all my arrangements have been made and care for my dogs because I will not be coming home. Have made extra precautions and added more supplies in the tunnel under my house in case local or federal law enforcement tries to stop me." (Note, there are no tunnels under his house)
"Getting ready if Kav is not confirmed....whoever I think is to blame may God have mercy on their soul."
"Just cleaned out the gun shop where I get guns, ammo, and target practice. Bought all their 50 cal hollow points. I expect to be confronted and I will be ready to kill and ready to die."
"I am about to accept an offer on my house just to get more money to fund my plan to kill Democrat office holders and their families. It is all I think about night and day. I even wake up in the middle of the night, most nights, thinking about it. Ultimately I will be killed but hopefully I will have killed many many liberal [sic] elected in Washington."
"I can tell it seems I will be sacrificing my life for my country. But I am ready and will know who needs to be killed after the vote to put Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court. I believe democrats need to be afraid to do what they are doing right now and weak republicans that do not vote for him need to pay with their lives."
"I can't do this by myself! Need more conservatives going into liberals' homes at night killing them in their sleep!"

https://www.nbcnews.com/tech/tech-news/rudy-giuliani-falsely-blames-twitter-after-typo-points-anti-trump-n944136

Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump's attorney, falsely alleged that Twitter was behind a conspiracy to "invade" his Twitter account on Tuesday night after he accidentally tweeted a link to a website that called the president "a traitor to our country."

Giuliani, a former federal prosecutor and mayor of New York, mistakenly posted a link to “G-20.In” last Friday when one of his tweets left no space between a sentence ending in “G-20” and the next one starting with “In.” An Atlanta-based designer quickly bought the domain and created a website that read

>“Donald Trump is a traitor to our country.”
g-20.in

So Giuliani inadvertently posted a link to a website that didn't exist until he tweeted it out on Friday. He did not appear to understand the mistake and used it to add to growing claims that Twitter is biased against conservatives and Trump supporters.

"Twitter allowed someone to invade my text with a disgusting anti-President message. The same thing-period no space-occurred later and it didn’t happen. Don’t tell me they are not committed cardcarrying anti-Trumpers. Time Magazine also may fit that description. FAIRNESS PLEASE," Giuliani tweeted just before 8 p.m. on Tuesday.

Placing any text before ".in," the equivalent of ".com" in India, will result in a web address that will then redirect Twitter users to a website.

Twitter also denied it is possible to "invade” a user's text message, and timestamps show that Giuliani's link was live before Velazquez bought the domain name, according to domain registration records. Velazquez, whose firm does not have an office, said that he doesn't know anyone at Twitter, and that there was no conspiracy between him and the company.

Giuliani's punctuation is sometimes spotty on Twitter, which he also pointed to as possible evidence of a conspiracy. In the same tweet, he typed "Helsinki.Either," with no space after the period.

A top-level domain for ".either" does not exist, so Twitter would not recognize “Helsinki.Either” as a hyperlink.

>Giuliani, who was named Trump's cybersecurity adviser before becoming his personal lawyer,

has marketed himself as a "security expert" in recent years, including in a commercial for a "dark web scanning" product for the consumer credit report agency Experian. He also gave a speech about cybersecurity at the Blackberry Security Summit in 2016.

The day after posting his tweet that accidentally contained the G-20.in URL, Giuliani replied to his own tweet with what appears to be a string of random characters.

"Kimim ° has f," Giuliani tweeted.

Velazquez has been updating G-20.in with links to news reports about the Russia investigation since buying the domain.

The only black eye to this story is the fact the guy who bought the site is clearly a redditor since the sublink to the page leads there.

If 4chan weren't so poorly run and have such a right wing bias, I'm sure someone here would have done it first. You cannot say it had great trolling potential that worked.

A father of a Parkland school shooting victim appeared on “Fox & Friends” over the weekend and suggested, without evidence, that Democrats registered the accused shooter to vote from jail as part of an effort to steal Florida’s election.

“It just shows you how despicable these Democrats are that they’ll stoop that low to go into the prison, the jail, and register these criminals,” said Andrew Pollack, whose daughter Meadow was one of 17 people Nikolas Cruz allegedly shot and killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in February. “It’s never been done in 20 years.”

Citing a “tip from deputies at the jail,” Pollack said the plan failed because Broward County — which is now involved in a recount battle that could swing Florida’s Senate and gubernatorial elections — failed to send the inmates their ballots in time to vote.

“They probably shouldn’t be voting anyway,” Fox’s Katie Pavlich remarked after listening to Pollack’s accusations, which neither she nor her two co-hosts challenged at any point, although they contradicted all public evidence.

There was a kernel of truth at the heart of the segment and the spiraling social media outrage that accompanied it: Nikolas Jacob Cruz really did register to vote in July, listing his home address as the county jail where he awaits trial after police say he confessed to the mass shooting.

He registered as a Republican, which “Fox & Friends” didn’t mention.

Congressional Democrats said Thursday they’re prepared to reject a new GOP plan to get President Trump the money he is demanding for his border wall — escalating the chances of a partial government shutdown next week.

The new Republican plan would deliver $5 billion for Trump’s long-promised U.S.-Mexico border wall by dividing the expenditure over two years — $2.5 billion in 2019 and $2.5 billion in 2020.

But Democrats, who have rejected the idea of spending $5 billion on a wall Trump claimed Mexico would pay for, said splitting the money up over two years did not make it more palatable.

“No matter how many years you spread it over, $5 billion for President Trump’s wasteful wall is too much money,” said Rep. Nita M. Lowey (D-N.Y.), the top Democrat on the House Appropriations Committee. “While we are willing to negotiate on how best to secure our border, we will never support wasting tax dollars on a wall designed to gin up the Republican base.”

Democratic lawmakers and aides in the Senate also said the plan for $5 billion over two years wouldn’t fly.

“He’s asking the taxpayers to give him money ... for something when he gave his solemn word that taxpayers wouldn’t have to pay, the Mexicans would pay, and has threatened to shut down the government in I guess an attempt to bail out the Mexicans from his promise,” said Sen. Patrick J. Leahy (D-Vt.), the top Democrat on the Senate Appropriations Committee. “It doesn’t make much sense.”

The wall will be built any day now, right?

Campaign finance
Public financing of campaigns, powered by small donations. Under Sarbanes’s vision, the federal government would provide a voluntary 6-1 match for candidates for president and Congress, which means for every dollar a candidate raises from small donations, the federal government would match it six times over. “If you give $100 to a candidate that’s meeting those requirements, then that candidate would get another $600 coming in behind them,” Sarbanes told Vox this summer. “The evidence and the modeling is that most candidates can do as well or better in terms of the dollars they raise if they step into this new system.”
Passing the DISCLOSE Act, pushed by Rep. David Cicilline (RI) and Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (RI), both Democrats from Rhode Island. This would require Super PACs and “dark money” political organizations to make their donors public.
Passing the Honest Ads Act, championed by Sens. Amy Klobuchar (MN) and Mark Warner (VA), which would require Facebook and Twitter to disclose the source of money of political ads on their platforms, and share how much money was spent.
Ethics
Requiring the president to disclose his or her tax returns.
Stopping members of Congress from using taxpayer money to settle sexual harassment cases or buy first-class plane tickets.
Giving the Office of Government Ethics the power to do more oversight and enforcement and put in stricter lobbying registration requirements.
Create a new ethical code for the US Supreme Court, ensuring all branches of government are impacted by the new law.

>>321084
Voting rights
Creating new national automatic voter registration that asks voters to opt out, rather than opt in, ensuring more people will be signed up to vote. Early voting and online voter registration would also be promoted.
Restoring the Voting Rights Act, part of which was dismantled by a US Supreme Court decision in 2013. Ending partisan gerrymandering in federal elections and prohibiting voter roll purging.
Beefing up elections security, including requiring the Director of National Intelligence to do regular checks on foreign threats.

All this stuff is great and should have been done a long time ago. Can't wait to see how conservatives will twist it into something bad.

Absolutely fucking astounding that people still call Trump a success when he had two years with complete control of both the presidency and the Senate and still got nothing done. Still, I'm glad Republicans are so incompetent, we could have had a lot more damage done to this country.

Polish Defense Minister: Russian troops are already officially attacking Ukraine

According to the minister, in 2008 Russia attacked Georgia, and in 2014, Ukraine.

“And now, Russian troops are already officially attacking Ukraine,” said Blashchak.

According to the head of the defense department of Poland, now there is a “gradual restoration of the Russian empire”

“It is the same imperial policy, which was carried out before, also carried out today. That is why I, as Minister of National Defense, as well as the government of Prime Minister Mateusz Moravetsky and President of Poland Duda, are trying to have Fort Trump in Poland, ”added Blaszczak.

Russia can go pack sand, they're not a NATO member and don't have the authority to say anything in the matter.

All they've got is threats. It's Ukraine that should get to choose.

Things took a very bizarre turn on Tuesday night’s episode of “The Voice,” as one finalist was saved from elimination without even performing a song — and some extremely unhappy fans are blaming Adam Levine.

Levine, a coach on NBC’s hit singing show since it debuted seven years ago, found himself in the middle of this season’s biggest controversy. On Monday night, the Top 10 finalists performed. As usual, on Tuesday, everyone gathered for the viewer-voted results show to learn which singers would survive and go to next week’s semifinals.

The weirdness started as host Carson Daly brought the contestants onstage, and one person was missing: Reagan Strange, the 14-year-old soul-pop singer.

“She’s in the building, not feeling well at the moment, isn’t joining us. But is still here in spirit and part of the show, as for now,” Daly assured the audience. “So we’re thinking of her.”

In most cases, an absence would be unusual, but not a big deal — except that when Daly read the results, Strange was one of the bottom three vote-getters, along with 39-year-old country artist Dave Fenley and 22-year-old R&B-soul singer DeAndre Nico. Because only two singers would be eliminated, all three had a chance to try to save themselves (the show’s “instant save”) by performing one more song, as fans live-tweeted a special hashtag for their favorite.

The only problem? Strange, who performed Faith Hill’s “Cry” on Monday’s show, was now too sick to sing.

“Dave, DeAndre and Reagan remain at risk for elimination. And you can only save one of them. Unfortunately, Reagan’s still feeling under the weather, she’s not going to be able to perform tonight.” Daly said gravely. Then, a twist!

Good to know someone appreciates it. I don't watch The Voice but I saw this in the list of articles on Google, which I like looking at to see news I normally wouldn't seek out on my own, got curious because of the headline and then found it amusing how in-depth an article it was for a silly reality TV show. Thought it'd be a nice change of pace from the constant political mudslinging threads, and here we are.

The answer to your question is yes, considering the American version of The Voice is just one of dozens of versions of the show airing worldwide.

Republican senators emerged from a briefing Tuesday about journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s killing and essentially accused the Trump administration of misleading the country about it — and even covering it up for Saudi Arabia.

In remarks after a briefing from CIA Director Gina Haspel, Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) and Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.) suggested there is no plausible way that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman didn’t order the killing of Khashoggi, a Washington Post contributing columnist, and said that the evidence is overwhelming.

This is completely contrary to the narrative that has been put forward by President Trump and his secretary of state, Mike Pompeo. Trump has said it’s unknowable whether the crown prince was actually behind it — despite the CIA concluding this with “high confidence” — while Pompeo said last week that there was no “direct reporting” implicating him.

Graham said Tuesday that you’d have to be “willfully blind” to not know Mohammed was responsible — a clear rebuke of Trump’s argument that this whole thing resides in some kind of gray area.

Graham was also asked about Pompeo’s comments and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis’s comments that there was no “smoking gun.” The senator said there was indeed a “smoking saw” — a reference to the reported bonesaw that was brought to dismember Khashoggi — and that Pompeo was being a “good soldier” by toeing the administration’s line. So that’s basically saying Pompeo aided Trump’s “willful” effort to obscure the truth.

“If they were in a Democratic administration,” Graham said of Pompeo and Mattis, “I would be all over them for being in the pocket of Saudi Arabia.”
