Surprised no one made a post on this, but...

>US President Donald Trump has vetoed a bill passed by Congress to end support for the Saudi-led war in Yemen.

>Mr Trump described the resolution as an "unnecessary" and "dangerous" attempt to weaken his constitutional powers.

>It is only the second time Mr Trump has used his presidential veto since he took office in 2017.

>Opposition in Congress to his policy on Yemen grew last year after Saudi agents killed the journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

>The resolution passed the House of Representatives in April and the Senate in March, the first time both chambers had supported a War Powers resolution, which limits the president's ability to send troops into action.

>"This resolution is an unnecessary, dangerous attempt to weaken my constitutional authorities, endangering the lives of American citizens and brave service members, both today and in the future," Mr Trump said in the veto message.

>Yemen has been devastated by a conflict that escalated in March 2015, when the rebel Houthi movement seized control of much of the west of the country and forced President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi to flee abroad.

>Alarmed by the rise of a group they believed to be backed militarily by regional Shia power Iran, Saudi Arabia and eight other mostly Sunni Arab states began an air campaign aimed at restoring Mr Hadi's government.

>The US has provided billions of dollars of weapons and intelligence to the coalition.

>The UN says at least 7,000 civilians have been killed in the country, with 65% of the deaths attributed to air strikes by the Saudi-led coalition.

>US senators have accused Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman of ordering the murder of Mr Khashoggi, but Saudi prosecutors have insisted it was a "rogue operation" and that the agents were not acting on his orders.

>President Trump first used his veto last month after Congress voted to block his declaration of a national emergency on the US southern border in order to secure funding for his border wall.

Well I don't like Trump either but he's really just continuing the longstanding US foreign policy in this specific area. Obama, Bush Jr., and Clinton did the same, if not a little bit more than what Trump is doing now. Not saying the Yemen policy is good or shouldn't be ended, only that this is one singular thing nobody can blame Trump for entirely.

Former White House Director of Communications Anthony Scaramucci says Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., is losing steam in New York while appearing on “Hannity” Monday.

Scaramucci said New Yorkers are getting tiring of Ocasio-Cortez following her role in Amazon pulling their headquarters from Queens, and that she will be challenged during the next election.

“They'll find somebody to challenge her in that district… somebody more moderate I think will take her lights out. I don't know, she destroyed herself with this whole Amazon thing,” Scaramucci said.

Scaramucci said New Yorkers are “tired” of the congresswoman.

“So, she's colorful she's got some interesting ways to attract attention to herself but I think I think New York's getting tired of it,” Scaramucci told host Sean Hannity.

Does Piers Morgan pay you to post here?

Congress ramped up its investigations into Trump's shady business dealings on Tuesday by issuing subpoenas to banks that have ties to Trump.

The investigation centers on "allegations of potential foreign influence on the U.S. political process," Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), chair of the House Intelligence Committee, said in a statement to NBC News.

Both the House Intelligence Committee and House Financial Services Committee have issued subpoenas to Deutsche Bank, as well as JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup, and Bank of America.

Trump has a long history with Deutsche Bank in particular, and still owes the bank at least $130 million.

As Schiff explained in a December 2018 interview on NBC's "Meet the Press," Trump's connection to Deutsche Bank is especially troubling because the institution has "a history of laundering Russian money."

"The potential use of the U.S. financial system for illicit purposes is a very serious concern," Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), chair of the Financial Services Committee, told NBC News in a statement.

The subpoena to Deutsche Bank is known as a "friendly subpoena," indicating the bank agreed to cooperate but needed the subpoena in order to comply with their legal obligations.

Schiff and Waters are not the only members of Congress seeking information about Trump's shady financial background.

Next time post excerpts from the article

https://www.cnn.com/2019/04/10/politics/office-of-personnel-management-trump-administration/index.html?utm_medium=social&utm_term=link&utm_source=fbCNN&utm_content=2019-04-10T20%3A46%3A04

Washington (CNN)The Trump administration is planning to dismantle the Office of Personnel Management, a decades-old federal agency that oversees the federal government's civil service, The Washington Post reported Wednesday.

The paper said the agency "would be pulled apart and its functions divided among three other departments." Citing conversations with unnamed administration officials, the Post reported that an executive order "directing parts of the transition by the fall is in the final stages of review" and that President Donald Trump will "likely" make an announcement on the plan in the coming months.

According to the paper, the agency's 5,565 employees were briefed on the plan in March.

The Post said the White House "is short on details" of the plan, but noted that it plans to break apart the agency "in several stages, with some steps beginning now and other changes delayed pending congressional approval." It also said officials "were not able to estimate the short- or long-term savings" of the agency's closure. According to the paper, OPM's annual budget is $2.1 billion.

Judd Deere, a spokesman for the White House, told CNN Wednesday that Trump "is committed to reforming the federal government, making it more efficient, effective, and accountable for hardworking American taxpayers."

No, it's called "a good reason" to take OPM out of the background investigations. I cannot think of a way possible to fail harder than this.
>>
>>380743
The reason background checks are in the OPM is it's a politically neutral and independent agency outside the three main branches of government. It's a firewall to prevent the spoils system that led to the Pendleton Act. Putting it under the DoD undermines that and draws the civilian service closer to the executive branch.

>a politically neutral and independent agency outside the three main branches of government
So it's extra-Constitutional? Anon, you ignorant pissant, the head of the agency is a Presidential appointment. It is very firmly in the Executive.
But this has nothing to do with conflict of interest. It has everything to do with demonstrable incompetence. By being unable to maintain a fucking website, they put in jeopardy the lives of every intelligence and military person with a clearance - and their families. Take a look at the SF86 and tell me if you want that information sitting in the desk of your enemies. Is anyone at OPM endangered? Nope. I doubt anyone was even fired. No skin in the game.

Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez reportedly hired a top Hollywood talent agency to try and get a book deal, but the project fell through.

The progressive darling and representative for New York, known as AOC, reportedly hired and met with officials from the Creative Artists Agency (CAA) earlier this year.

But according to , the potential book contract was pulled for unknown reasons.

CAA did not confirm or deny working with the 29-year-old, and Corbin Trent, the communications director for Ocasio-Cortez, said: 'I can't help you with it.'

It's unclear if the project will be picked up at a later date.

Sitting House members are prohibited from accepting book advances.

U.S. newspapers report that the attorney general has underplayed the obstruction findings. Given his background, maybe he should have recused himself.

Eleven days have passed since Attorney General William Barr fired off a surprisingly brief letter outlining what he asserted were the key takeaways from a highly anticipated report two years in the making. During that time, we’ve learned much more about Barr than we have about Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Trump-Russia probe.

We’ve learned, for example, that Barr rushed to exculpate President Donald Trump and his advisers in that four-page missive, which laid out what the attorney general claimed were the Mueller report’s two key criminal inquiries: Conspiracy and obstruction of justice. We’ve learned that, although Mueller felt his report didn’t completely exonerate the president, he didn’t think Trump and his team conspired with Russia to try sabotaging the 2016 presidential campaign. On the other hand, Mueller didn’t decide whether Trump obstructed justice. Barr took that as a signal that he should rule on that one, and he did: No obstruction.

We’ve learned subsequently that Barr may have come across as a little too absolute in that first letter, hence his decision to send a second missive last Friday declaring that – phew! – his first letter was never meant to be a summary or even an “exhaustive recounting” of everything in Mueller’s report. It was just a “bottom line” conclusion.

Barr being a clear political drone is why you won't see any clear changes in polling or the Mueller report because he's made it clear he's just another political hack for Trump.
Also, it's not just Barr gaslighting, but Trump and the entire conservative media.
The Mueller Report clearly said Trump obstructed justice, but Mueller punted because he can't indite a sitting president under DoJ guidelines. Barr twists that to say he doesn't see obstruction in the Barr Report. So Trump and the conservative biased media take one thing, and turn into another.
Plus they're also equating criminal conspiracy as collusion.

Given how Barr had little credibility before the report, how he was rebuked by some of Muller's team and how he then proved he's a conspiracy theorist too by saying he believed their is a deep state that is out to get Trump. No one's who's a reasonable American will believe anything Barr says or does unless you have Mueller come out and give his stamp of approval.

The economy is doing well according to simplistic metrics but a lot of people are underemployed, overworked, overstressed, in debt and overexposed to financial risks.
But all of this is not reflected in the metrics.
All you see in the metrics is whether or not they are an Uber driver. If they are, they are counted as "doing well enough" and that's the whole extent of the analysis.
>>
>>382326
Fair, though I don't think any candidate has addressed people being underemployed in a reasonable way. That said, I really don't think there is anything that can be done about it. The jobs are gone and won't be coming back. There is only so much of the population that can be retrained to a new, specialized profession before those become saturated as well and the cycle begins a new as automation continues to phase more jobs out.

>Keith Cutler surprised a courtroom by revealing he had received an official summons to sit as a juror in a case over which he was expected to preside.

The Indonesian government and military is documented by BBC to have actually harvested organs from Acehnese civilians during the Aceh separatist insurgency, just for being Acehnese.

>One of the most disturbing accounts was of Muhibbudin, a young Acehnese man with a massive scar on his torso - he says this is where his kidney was forcibly removed to give to an Indonesian soldier.

On March 27, India conducted an anti-satellite missile test and successfully destroyed a live satellite sitting 186 miles above the surface, in low Earth orbit (LEO). This means the world’s biggest democracy is also the fourth nation in the world with anti-satellite missile capabilities (after the United States, Russia, and China). The news was not greeted warmly: The Union of Concerned Scientists issued a statement expressing, well, concern about the test as an example of increased militarization of space. Planet Labs, a long-term partner of the Indian Sauce Research Organization (India’s space agency), condemned the test and emphasized that space should be used for “peaceful purposes.”
But the fiercest criticisms came on Monday by none other than NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine, during a meeting with NASA employees for an open Q&A session. Bridenstine called the test and the orbital debris field it left in its wake “unacceptable,” and said “NASA needs to be very clear about what its impact to us is…It’s is not acceptable for us to allow people to create orbital debris fields that put at risk our people…These activities are not sustainable or compatible with human spaceflight.”

UK patients should be banned from travelling to China for transplant surgery, the government has been told, before an inquiry into allegations of forced organ harvesting from prisoners of conscience.

The call has so far been backed by 40 MPs from all parties before the next session of the independent China tribunal, which is investigating claims that detainees are being targeted by the regime. China dismisses the allegations as malicious rumours and insists that it adheres to international medical standards that require organ donations to be made by consent and without any financial charges.

Opening a Westminster Hall debate last week, the DUP MP Jim Shannon urged the UK government to consider imposing an organ tourism ban like those already enacted by Italy, Spain, Israel and Taiwan.

“It is wrong that people should travel from here to China for what is almost a live organ on demand to suit themselves,” Shannon, the MP for Strangford in Northern Ireland, said. “It is hard to take in what that means – it leaves one incredulous.

“It means someone can sit in London or in Newtownards and order an organ to be provided on demand. Within a month they can have the operation.

“We need to control that structurally, as other countries have, not simply because it is the right thing to do, but also because it is necessary to protect UK citizens from unwittingly playing a role in the horrifying suffering of religious or belief groups in China.”

The China Tribunal, chaired by Sir Geoffrey Nice QC who was formerly a prosecutor at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, has been taking evidence about alleged mispractices from medical experts, human rights investigators and others.

It will hold a second round of hearings on 6 and 7 April in London. Its final judgment will be published on 13 June. China has been asked to participate but has declined to do so.

Former Vice President Joe Biden is significantly leading the Democratic primary race in South Carolina according to a poll released on Monday. Biden leads the field convincingly with 32 percent of the vote, according to a poll of voters conducted by Change Research, while Sen. Bernie Sanders only has 14 percent support. Kamala Harris comes in third place with 10 percent followed by Corey Booker and Beto O’Rourke tied at nine percent.

Biden has yet to officially announce his run for president.

Stacy Abrams, the former failed candidate for Georgia Governor, has not announced a 2020 campaign but currently has 7 percent support in South Carolina, tied with South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

Here is the full rundown:

Joe Biden — 32%

Bernie Sanders — 14%

Kamala Harris — 10%

Cory Booker — 9%
