WASHINGTON (AP) — Taking unprecedented action, a federal watchdog agency recommended Thursday that President Donald Trump fire one of his most ardent defenders, counselor Kellyanne Conway , for repeatedly violating a law that limits political activity by government workers.

The U.S. Office of Special Counsel, which is unrelated to special counsel Robert Mueller’s office, said in a letter to Trump that Conway has been a “repeat offender” of the Hatch Act by disparaging Democratic presidential candidates while speaking in her official capacity during television interviews and on social media.

Federal law prohibits employees of the executive branch from using their official authority or influence to affect the result of an election. Trump and Vice President Mike Pence are exempt from the Hatch Act, but there are no exceptions for White House employees.

The agency does not have the authority to fire Conway, who was appointed by Trump, so it would be up to the president to follow its recommendation and dismiss one of his most unwavering defenders. Conway is known for her fiery television appearances in support of the president and his policies. She helped him win election in 2016 as his campaign manager.

The recommendation to fire Conway is the first time the watchdog office has recommended the removal of a White House official over Hatch Act violations.

>There is credible evidence that Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and other high-level officials are individually liable for the killing of Jamal Khashoggi, a UN expert says.

President Donald Trump’s favorite channel has some bad news for him.

A brand new Fox News poll released on Sunday shows that 2020 Democratic candidates Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) would beat Trump by ten and nine points respectively if the 2020 general election were held today.

However, the poll also reveals that support for Sanders has dropped from 23 points in March to 13 points now.

The Vermont senator brushed off the drop during a Fox News interview with Chris Wallace, saying that “polls go up and polls go down.”

“But the other part of the poll, if I heard you correctly, Chris, is that I am beating President Trump fairly decisively, which is consistent with all of the polling that I have seen,” Sanders continued.

The survey’s findings largely reflect those of other 2020 polls, which have repeatedly shown Trump trailing behind Biden, Sanders and occasionally Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).

>TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran’s Revolutionary Guard shot down a U.S. drone on Thursday amid heightened tensions between Tehran and Washington over the collapsing nuclear deal with world powers, American and Iranian officials said, though they disputed the circumstances of the incident.

>The Guard said it shot down the RQ-4 Global Hawk drone over Iranian airspace, while the U.S. said the downing happened over international airspace in the Strait of Hormuz. The different accounts could not be immediately reconciled.

>Later, the U.S. military’s Central Command released a statement calling the downing an “unprovoked attack.”

>Previously, the U.S. military alleged that Iran had fired a missile at another drone last week that was responding to the attack on two oil tankers near the Gulf of Oman. The U.S. blames Iran for the attack on the ships; Tehran denies it was involved.

>The attacks come against the backdrop of heightened tensions between the U.S. and Iran following President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw from Tehran’s nuclear deal a year ago.

>Separately, Saudi Arabia said on Thursday that Yemen’s Iranian-allied Houthi rebels launched a rocket targeting a desalination plant in the kingdom the previous night. The White House said Trump was briefed about that attack.

>Iran has quadrupled its production of low-enriched uranium and threatened to boost its enrichment closer to weapons-grade levels, trying to pressure Europe for new terms to the 2015 nuclear deal.

Rhuan Maycon, 9, was stabbed to death on May 31st by his mother, Rosana da Silva Candido, 27, and lesbian partner Kacyla Damasceno Pessao, 28.

The boy was stabbed to death as he slept after suffering for a year after a botched gender reassignment surgery.

According to Brazil’s Child Protective Services, the boy had a“kind of a sex-change surgery. After removing the penis, they sewed the mutilated region and improvised a version of a female genital organ, making a cut in the groin”

The surgery had apparently been performed with no medical supervision after Rhuan’s mother had decided to turn her son into a girl.

Rhuan’s father had previously contacted Child Protective Services and the police after expressing concerns about the welfare of his son.

Rhuan’s mother and her partner were able to evade the authorities by moving across states and around the country.

Child Protective Services were unable to keep up or save Rhuan’s young life.

Rhuan’s father told the press, “We tried to save Rhuan. We published messages on the social media, we contacted police and the Child Protective Services. No one helped us.”

The right to not be discriminated against based on race has nothing to do with the 1st Amendment. It's based on the 14th. And you enjoy the same 14th Amendment right to be banned based on your political views as any other citizen.

The Ohio jury has spoken in the libel case against Oberlin and it has spoken loudly and ferociously. In addition to the more than $11 million in regular damages that Oberlin already has to pay Gibson’s Bakery the jury has piled on an additional $33.2 million in punitive damages.

This was a very angry jury. Under Ohio law, punitive damages are supposed to be capped at twice the amount of compensatory damages, which are damages meant to compensate for the plaintiff’s injuries. Instead, the jury hit Oberlin, and its Dean of Students, Meredith Raimondo, with punitive damages that are triple the amount of the compensatory damages for a whopping total verdict of more than $44 million.

Punitive damages are not meant to compensate the plaintiff. They are designed to punish the defendant for truly egregious, intentionally wrongful behavior. So, it’s pretty obvious that the jury felt that Oberlin had behaved in a truly outrageous fashion. The jury is apparently so angry that they are willing to impose sanctions that will presumably be pared back, or perhaps overturned altogether, in order to express just how angry they are at Oberlin.

>the left's pov is endorsed more frequently and fervently to any criticism the right has.
This, again, is the same claim the left makes about the right. They claim that all media is corporate owned, thus entirely right winged in its approach and nature, constantly cite rampant racism and bigotry in every branch of news and entertainment, nickname even what I'm sure you'd call the "left leaning" PBS the "Petroleum Broadcasting System" etc. etc.

Just one of billions of examples:

Spend some time listening to the other side, you'll find they sound eerily like your own. Ya both think yer the persecuted underdogs fighting the conspiracies of the establishment, and more often than not, site the same enemies as belonging to or having bought the opposing team.

Hyping emotionally charged issues while setting folks against one another by manipulating their tribalistic tendencies to trap themselves in echo chamber, an activity which individuals will eagerly volunteer to propagate in turn, free of charge, is a great way to distract the public from real issues and leave them both blind and paralyzed, locked at each other's throats as they both endlessly scream "Fuck those guys!"
Congrats you cited 2 of the 4 right wing outlets, one cable the balance online. The overwhelming majority of the other outlets are left leaning its just they dont openly market their bias.
The point get woke go broke. Teach false science as wokeness truth pills and reality will make you write a check.
>>Jury fines Oberlin with 50% higher fine than the legal limit after students, faculty and administration spend years accusing a vindicated bakery of racism for daring to stop african american students from stealing

Aww, they were "teens" just "expressing themselves".....
The point you are missing is, from the far left's point of view, ALL corporate owned media AND the public broadcasting systems that are sponsored by corporations (largely oil and pharma) are right wing. So, basically Radio Pacifica is the only "real news" source. (Last sentence actually a quote I've heard from one.)

Granted, I often hear far right wingers complaining that Fox News isn't right wing enough, hates Trump, or what not, or that Infowars itself is a Jewish conspiracy (both of which, again, I've heard in person).

>A Dutch engineering university is taking radical action to increase its share of female academics by opening job vacancies to women only.

>Starting on 1 July, the Eindhoven University of Technology (TUE) in the Netherlands will not allow men to apply for permanent academic jobs for the first 6 months of the recruitment process under a new fellowship program. If no suitable applicant has been found within that time, men can then apply, but the selection committee will still have to nominate at least one candidate of each gender.

>“We have been talking about [gender balance] for ages,” says TUEPresident Robert-Jan Smits. “All kinds of soft measures are taken and lip service is paid to it. But the stats still look awful.” Currently, 29% of TUE’s assistant professors are women; at the associate and full professor level, about 15% are women. With this program, TUEwants to reach 50% of women for assistant and associate professors, and 35% for full professors.

>The plan wasannounced todayand is already attracting controversy. “People say it’s illegal; they say we will lower standards. That’s a load of baloney,” Smits says. Some critics say the program discriminates against men. “Yes, absolutely,” Smits says. “For years, men have been discriminating against women, and women haven’t been paid the same as men for the same jobs.”

>The program offers 5-year tenure track positions with a €100,000 startup package to set up labs, along with a mentoring program and career opportunities for spouses.

A top analyst at UBS has taken a leave of absence after his inclusion of the phrase “Chinese pigs” in research commentary this week on the country’s rising pork prices triggered an outcry among the Chinese financial community.

Paul Donovan, chief economist at UBS Global Wealth Management, referenced climbing Chinese consumer prices and linked the inflation increase to the recent African swine fever epidemic, which has buoyed pork prices in the world’s second largest economy. U.S. meat executives estimate that hundreds of millions of hogs have succumbed to the virus since August 2018.

“Does this matter? It matters if you are a Chinese pig. It matters if you like eating pork in China. It does not really matter to the rest of the world,” he said, in the podcast, which was later removed from the bank’s website.

His commentary sent tremors throughout Hong Kong’s community of Chinese financial professionals. A letter from the Chinese Securities Association of Hong Kong called for Donovan’s dismissal. Haitong International, the overseas arm of a Chinese brokerage, said they had suspended dealings with UBS.

Twelve white male San Francisco police officers are suing the city, arguing they were passed over for promotions because of their race and gender.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports Wednesday that the lawsuit, which was filed Tuesday in federal court, is the latest round in a conflict that dates back decades. A 13th plaintiff who is now retired says she also was denied promotion, because she is a white lesbian.

The lawsuit challenges a test-scoring method that the city adopted in 1979 in response to a lawsuit from a group representing black and female officers, who alleged discrimination in hiring and promotions.

San Francisco "bands" promotional test scores so that people who score within a certain range are treated the same, which means the department can consider other factors such as language skills and experience in awarding promotions. The latest lawsuit challenges that method.

"The city — to this day — has a long-standing practice and custom of discriminating against white males in SFPD promotions to the rank of sergeant, lieutenant and captain," said M. Greg Mullanax, the officers' attorney, in the lawsuit.

So what you're saying is that if your great-grandfather stole land and resources a century ago its totally fine that we go to his farm and take it back. I mean, theft is theft, right? Or are you just trying to say that theft has a time limit on it and that owning something that you stole after a certain amount of years just suddenly makes it yours?

>Biden goes full Neo-Liberal, pledges allegiance to mega wealthy

“No one’s standard of living will change, nothing would fundamentally change,” the former vice president said at a New York fundraiser on Tuesday.

Former Vice President Joe Biden told a roomful of well-heeled donors on Tuesday night that he would not “demonize” the rich if he’s elected president in the 2020 election. “I need you very badly,” he told the group.

Addressing the 100 or so guests at a fundraiser at the swanky Carlyle Hotel in New York City, Biden said he’d gotten into hot soup with “some of the people on my team, on the Democratic side” for his earlier comments about rich people being “just as patriotic as poor people.”

That’s “not a joke,” he said. “I mean, we may not want to demonize anybody who has made money.”

Appearing to suggest that his tax plan would not include excessive taxes on the rich, Biden said “no one’s standard of living change” if he’s elected.

“The truth of the matter is, you all, you all know, you all know in your gut what has to be done. We can disagree in the margins but the truth of the matter is it’s all within our wheelhouse and nobody has to be punished. No one’s standard of living will change, nothing would fundamentally change,” he said.

Bernie Sanders consistently supports a big increase in America's debt and deficit, which would threaten America's ability to meet our shared responsibility for running a national retirement system.

Sanders has called for a "Medicare for All" program, which would be a staggering 50 percent increase in America's debt and deficit by 2037.

In fairness, Sanders is technically right in saying that he would "only pay for that 10 percent increase in Social Security and Medicare by changing the way we pay for our military." But his opponents and many other Republicans aren't all that far off when they speak of increasing the deficit. Sanders' plan may be the most radical of them all, yet he is often joined in proposing measures that would fund health care for all by dramatically increasing the national debt.

Historically, as savings rates have become significantly lower in recent decades, debt has increased at an increasing rate.
Here are a few reasons that Sanders' fiscal plan is a pipe dream.

Much of the argument is based on the fact that while other entitlements like Social Security and Medicare receive an automatic annual cost-of-living adjustment, annual inflation-adjusted payouts for Social Security increases (phased in as of Jan. 1, 2016) have been unchanged for three decades. That promise of living benefits consistently is not just wrong, it's not just unsustainable - it's not sustainable at all. Without the promised automatic increase in payments, Sanders' plan is irrelevant: he doesn't change the Social Security formula at all.

Social Security's actuaries have calculated that over the coming decades, you can't even say that Social Security's current income has doubled from today without an increase in the age of eligibility. The report says that "because the net amount of benefits paid by the Trust Fund remains fixed (with no real income increase), reductions in benefits will inevitably be made to levels that do not provide enough income to maintain today's payments."

I defy anyone to vote for Bernie Sanders who doesn't think that Social Security's $16 trillion balance between today's receipts and today's payouts is dangerously thin. Nobody on the Democratic ticket is going to make Bernie Sanders' plans just sound "difficult." But he can't avoid a fundamental reevaluation of whether it makes sense to continue to pay today's payouts that exceed today's income with tomorrow's revenue. After all, Social Security isn't even in the black yet.
Having a problem with being insolvent is not a good reason to let Sanders continue to run around promising irresponsible and reckless plans like an increase in national debt levels to cover Social Security benefits that won't increase until maybe 2042. Those promises are unsustainable in the long term. The only thing that make sense is to end those promises and set the program on a sounder footing. That makes it easier for younger Americans to afford to support older Americans who depend on Social Security for survival.
most of what he's suggesting has already been done in several other European countries and their finances are fine.

Thanks for being an ultra-conservative status-quo bootlicker. None of what you said was smart, and I would love to see you defend the massive tax cuts under Bush and Trump which did nothing for the economy and just went PURELY to stock buybacks and piling more billions on people who had no idea how to spend their current billions.

Do you sell super-yachts or Ferraris by any chance?
>That makes it easier for younger americans to support...

This is the fundamental problem. We need a political cantidate who will allow younger generations to cut the boomers off from retirement and stop paying for them, so that we can afford things like homes, starting a family, and looking towards the future instead of just the next paycheck.

We can't even afford to take care of ourselves, and you're acting like we can afford to take care of an ENTIRE OLDER GENERATION that wants to keep the first world lifestyle after retirement, but not contribute any work after the age of 65. Who's going to provide money for the remaining 30-odd years of life while they're not working? If its the young working class, where is that money going to come from? Because I can barely afford the fucking rent. Realistically, I need to make about three times what I make now to have a decent "First World" life. Where do you suggest that money will come from?
