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?

lol yes you are
Neither do republicans apparently because a wall is useless when most people just overstay their visas.
anyone who defines themselves by a singular party, repub, demo, whatev - is a mouth breathing sheep without any common sense. Dime a dozen, cant think for myself, ill let others do it for me, simpleton.
>Wall is useless

A team of researchers with members affiliated with several institutions in the U.S. and China has found two stalagmites that offer a way to improve the accuracy of the carbon-14 dating technique. In their paper published in the journal Science, the group describes the stalagmites and their study of them.

The carbon-14 dating technique has been the go-to dating technique for archaeologist since the 1950s—in recent years, it has become an important tool for use in measuring climate change, as well. But the technique has always suffered from one fatal flaw—its accuracy depends on a strong record of atmospheric carbon ratios (carbon-12 to carbon-14) for the time period involved. For recent years, this has not been a problem, of course. But the technique is less precise for dating older objects. Scientists have used tree rings (both preserved and fossilized) and coral reefs as a way to measure ratios in given time periods, but such techniques begin to suffer going back tens of thousands of years. In this new effort, the researchers report on the finding of two stalagmites in a Chinese cave that offer an accurate measure of such ratios going back approximately 54,000 years. The half-life of carbon-14 is 5,370 years.

Atmospheric 14C/12C changes during the last glacial period from Hulu Cave


Stalagmites are columns formed by mineral-bearing water dripping on the floors of caves over thousands of years—as a drop evaporates, it leaves behind a residual minerals—over time, they grow, forming tall columns. The stalagmites in China were found in Hulu Cave and they offer a continuous record of atmospheric carbon ratios.

To retrieve the carbon ratio data, the researchers used an isotopic dating technique called thorium-230 dating. They used it on hundreds of very thin layers in the stalagmites—each offered a ratio for a given time in history. The results represent what they describe as an unprecedented baseline, offering a means for improving the accuracy of a valuable dating tool. In the future, archaeologists will be able to provide more accurate estimates for organic objects that are newly excavated, as well as for those that have already been found.
if it's pretty deep in a cave system wouldn't lack of air flow affect the accuracy of their estimates.
also at least stalagmites aren't alive, remember that cluster of ancient trees someone killed by taking bores of them all then tried to blame the deaths on global warming...

This year, 113 people have been killed or injured in school shootings in the United States.

That's the sobering finding of a project to count the annual toll of gun attacks in schools.

At the beginning of 2018, Education Week, a journal covering education in the US, began to track school shootings - and has since recorded 23 incidents where there were deaths or injuries.

With many parts of the US having about 180 school days per year, it means, on average, a shooting once every eight school days.

Another database recording school shootings says 2018 has had the highest number of incidents ever recorded, in figures going back to 1970.

That database, from the US Center for Homeland Defense and Security and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (Fema), uses a different way of identifying gun incidents in school, and says this year there have been 94.

Footage of an artificial intelligence robot that Russian state television used as an example of the country's technological prowess has been exposed as a man wearing a robot suit.

Footage of an artificial intelligence robot that Russian state television used as an example of the country's technological prowess has been exposed as a man wearing a robot suit.

The Rossiya 24 news channel broadcast footage of what it presented as Boris the dancing, singing robot at a technology forum for school pupils.

But viewers and other journalists spotted some human-like movements and other discrepancies - and discovered Boris was in fact a human wearing a robot costume sold by a Russian company.

As the "machine" danced on stage, a presenter had said: "At the forum there's the opportunity to see state-of-the-art robots. Boris the Robot has already learned to dance, and not badly at that."

In the report, the robot also appeared to speak in a metallic voice as lights flashed on its face in different colours, saying: "I'm good at maths but now I want to study art and musical composition."

But images shared online from backstage at the event clearly showed a human inside a robot outfit, through a gap between a bodysuit and a headpiece.

Bloggers found the Robot Show website where the suit, identical to the one shown in the news clip, can be purchased.

>>The collective value of digital media brands including Huffington Post, Yahoo and AOL, which once had a stock market capitalisation of more than $200bn (£158bn), has been slashed to only $200m by their parent Verizon.

>>The US telecoms company has taken a $4.6bn charge on the goodwill value of Oath, the digital media subsidiary that houses properties including HuffPo, Yahoo and AOL, leaving it worth about $200m on paper.

>>In a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, the US stock market regulator, Verizon said it was writing down the value of Oath after a strategic review that resulted in the downgrading of financial projections for the business.

>>The write-down of the value of Oath, which Verizon put together in the hope of creating a viable rival to Google and Facebook with a target of $10bn revenues by 2020, provides further stark evidence of the tough conditions facing a whole generation of digital media companies.

>>It is also a far cry from the frothy excesses of the turn of the century dotcom boom, when AOL hit a peak stock market value of $222bn in December 1999, with Yahoo’s capitalisation topping $100m around the same time.

>>The following year AOL’s mega-merger with Time Warner created a $350bn business that was lauded as a visionary marriage of old and new media.

>>However, the deal has since been widely derided as one of the most disastrous mergers in corporate history and the two companies split in 2009, with AOL valued at about $3.5bn.

>>A newer generation of digital media companies with hot prospects have also found themselves falling on tougher times over the past year.

>>Last month Disney wrote down $157m of its investment in Vice Media, the youth-focused upstart that had enjoyed a frothy $5.7bn valuation. Disney took a $400m stake in Vice in 2015 after investment by other traditional media companies including Rupert Murdoch’s 21st Century Fox and the advertising giant WPP.

>>BuzzFeed, the digital media company founded by Jonah Peretti, missed its revenues last year, coming in at $260m versus a planned $350m. About 100 jobs were cut and a planned stock market flotation was postponed.

>>In a recent interview, Peretti appealed to rivals such as Vice, Vox Media, which owns brands including Recode and The Verge, Group Nine and Refinery, suggesting that they should think about merging to create the scale needed to compete with Google and Facebook.

TL;DR Verizon bought up a bunch of worthless garbage companies/brands that aren't worth three fucks.

Any thoughts?
>Any thoughts?
i give even less fucks than verizon got from buying these

the simple fact that they can just divide their capitalisation by a thousand whenever they fucking want with the sec's blessings is more than enough to make me hurl
The corruption is pretty sickening, although at the same time I am happy that blatant clickbait is apparently less profitable then previously thought. Hey who knows? Maybe this might be herald of the return of quality content to mainstream intern-aahahahahahahah lol no.

The Democratic Republic of Congo's deadly Ebola outbreak is now the second largest in history, behind the devastating West Africa outbreak that killed thousands a few years ago, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).

Dr Peter Salama, WHO's emergencies chief, called it a "sad toll" as DR Congo's health ministry announced the number of cases has reached 426.

That includes 379 confirmed cases and 47 probable ones.

So far this outbreak, declared on August 1, has caused 198 confirmed deaths, DR Congo's health ministry said.

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.”

MOSCOW, Dec 11 (Reuters) - Two Russian strategic bombers capable of carrying nuclear weapons have landed in ally Venezuela in a show of support for the government there that infuriated Washington.

The TU-160 supersonic bombers, known as “White Swans” by Russian pilots, landed at Maiquetia airport near Caracas on Monday after covering more than 10,000 km (6,200 miles).

Their deployment came days after Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, whose left-wing administration is the most significant U.S. foe in Latin America, held talks with President Vladimir Putin in Moscow.

Capable of carrying short-range nuclear missiles, the planes can fly over 12,000 km (7,500 miles) without re-fuelling and have landed in Venezuela twice before in the last decade.

“Russia’s government has sent bombers halfway around the world to Venezuela,” fumed U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Twitter.

“The Russian and Venezuelan people should see this for what it is: two corrupt governments squandering public funds, and squelching liberty and freedom while their people suffer.”

As OPEC member Venezuela’s socialist-run economy implodes, Russia has become a key lender of last resort, investing in its oil industry and providing support to its military.

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!"

Sen. Jeff Flake drew a dramatic new line against President Donald Trump and his fellow Republicans on Wednesday, promising to vote against new federal judges unless the Senate protects special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

Flake, a lame-duck Arizona Republican, could jeopardize dozens of judicial nominations Senate GOP leaders want to push through before the current Congress ends in early January.

His move comes days after Trump installed Matthew Whitaker as acting attorney general, a position that effectively places him in charge of the Mueller investigation.

Whitaker's earlier public remarks have sketched out ways to undermine Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and possible obstruction of justice afterward.

On Wednesday, Flake sought unanimous consent to pass a bill with Sen. Chris Coons, D-Delaware, to protect the investigation, but Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, immediately scuttled that request.

Flake, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee who leaves office in January, offered a swift response of his own.

"Because (the legislation) has failed today, Sen. Coons and I are prepared to raise it again and again, until there is a vote on this vital bipartisan legislation on the Senate floor," Flake said. "I have informed the majority leader that I will not vote to advance any of the 21 judicial nominees pending in the Judiciary Committee, or vote to confirm the 32 judges awaiting a confirmation vote on the floor, until (the bill) is brought to the full Senate for a vote."

Oh shit. McConnell is literally the only one stopping Mueller from being protected right now.
Republicans still control the a majority of the state houses they gerrymandered like Wisconsin, Michigan and North Carolina, and the passed legislation in the lame duck session to weaken the power of governors in states where Democrats won.

They'll just renominate and slam him through in the next congress, an ideological racist like Farr is someone the Republicans can't keep off the bench.
I just don't think this gambit is going to work out for them in the long run. There wasn't too much hubbub about the NC thing in 2016 because it was the only state where it happened, but now that they're trying it again, people are losing their fucking shit and we keep hearing about it every single day. I think the Dems are going to be able to regain any lost power and then some.
So how has this been going?

Donald Trump was recorded off camera saying "get me out of here" to an aide at the end of the G20 summit in Argentina, as he walked off stage even as other world leaders gathered for a photo.

The US president was also scheduled to pose for the final photos, as the meeting in Buenos Aires came to an end after a whirlwind two days.

But footage shows Mr Trump shaking hands with Mauricio Macri, the Argentinean president, before rapidly walking off stage.

Mr Macri, who stretched out a hand after him, appeared confused by the US leader's behaviour and was left alone in front of the photographers.

An aide then rushed across the stage after Mr Trump who, off camera, can be heard saying "Get me out of here."

Despite the president's wishes he did eventually return to the stage, to pose for group photos with the other world leaders.

The 72-year-old has previously made awkward blunders during photo opportunities with other dignitaries.

He briefly wandered out of a press event with Benjamin Netanyahu in 2017, only to be ushered back by staff moments later.

Fox News Host Tucker Carlson, who regularly praises Donald Trump on his show "Tucker Carlson Tonight," bashed the president in a rare interview with Swiss Publication Die Weltwoche.

On Tuesday, during an interview with Urs Gehriger, Die Weltwoche’s editor, Tucker admitted that he “hates” when Trump boasts and unleashed a variety of insults criticizing the Commander-in-Chief.

“It’s not my culture, I didn’t grow up like that,” he said, explaining his distaste for boasting.

After being asked whether be believed Trump has kept the promises he made during his campaign, Carlson responded: “No.”

“His chief promises were that he would build the wall, defund planned parenthood, and repeal Obamacare, and he hasn’t done any of those things,” the notorious Fox News host continued, before attributing the reason to perhaps Trump’s inability to keep focus.

“I don’t think he’s capable of sustained focus,” he continued. “I don’t think Congress is on his side. I don’t think his own agencies support him.”

When asked to elaborate, Carlson didn’t hold back on his scathing remarks about the president, whom he publicly supports on a nightly basis.

“It’s mostly his fault that he hasn’t achieved those things,” Carlson said, referring to the campaign promises he mentioned earlier. “[He] knows very little about the legislative process, hasn’t learned anything, hasn’t surrounded himself with people that can get it done, hasn’t done all the things you need to do.”

Yup, you found him, the sole anon who both likes anime and doesn't like Trump, there's no one else like him out there.

Although, this would explain why the left has so much bitter infighting among factions whenever there's an ideological disagreement

>there's no one else like him out there.
How many of them spam /news/ with left wing articles that border on op-ed and often times borderline-henati anime images? It's like a snapshot of a mind of someone who thinks they're being edgy.
He clearly does it to push people's buttons and by the amount of butthurt I see, it's working.
Tucker is an idiot just like Trump.

The House GOP campaign arm suffered a major hack during the 2018 election, exposing thousands of sensitive emails to an outside intruder, according to three senior party officials.

The email accounts of four senior aides at the National Republican Congressional Committee were surveilled for several months, the party officials said. The intrusion was detected in April by an NRCC vendor, who alerted the committee and its cybersecurity contractor. An internal investigation was initiated and the FBI was alerted to the attack, said the officials, who requested anonymity to discuss the incident.

However, senior House Republicans — including Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) — were not informed of the hack until POLITICO contacted the NRCC on Monday with questions about the episode. Rank-and-file House Republicans were not told, either.

Rep. Steve Stivers (R-Ohio), who served as NRCC chairman this past election cycle, did not respond to repeated requests for comment.

Committee officials said they decided to withhold the information because they were intent on conducting their own investigation, and feared that revealing the hack would compromise efforts to find the culprit.

"We don't want to get into details about what was taken because it's an ongoing investigation," said a senior party official. "Let's say they had access to four active accounts. I think you can draw from that."

Except that's exactly what they did in 2016. They hacked both, the Democrats and the Republicans. They released only Democratic communications and kept Republican ones to themselves as leverage.
It seems like everything they accuse Democrats of doing, or flail about as failure, is either perpetrated or happens to them.
Just like in North Carolina where they push forward with a giant voter suppression scheme to protect against 'voter fraud', and the Republicans are caught doing Electoral fraud.
