Like Eric Garner, this man was strangled to death by white cops for a misdemeanor crime. If you are a citizen in America–and especially if you are black–you could lose your life simply for demanding your rights. Here’s another example of poorly trained police officers who refuse to defuse a situation. Instead they behave like thugs because a black man dares question their authority.
Why isn’t this a major story? She should be forced to resign, or at least lose her seat in the Senate. Unacceptable:
Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) reportedly had a Chinese spy infiltrate her office for some 20 years.
According to reports from Politico and The San Francisco Chronicle, the mole from the communist government served as Feinstein’s driver, an office gofer, a liaison to the Asian-American community, and even attended Chinese consulate functions on behalf of the senator.
Feinstein allegedly had no idea that the man was spy for some two decades, and only found out via the FBI five years ago. She was apparently “mortified” by the shocking news and reportedly forced the spy into resignation, but neglected to tell her staff of the revelation.
The Federal Communications Commission repealed net neutrality rules earlier this year, but the Trump administration wants to go even further. On Thursday, the solicitor general requested that the Supreme Court vacate a 2016 ruling from the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals that holds that the net neutrality rules enacted during the Obama years permissibly reclassified broadband as a telecommunications service subject to regulation under Title II of the Communications Act.
Upon Trump’s inauguration and the appointment of Ajit Pai to lead the FCC, the rules preventing telecom giants from engaging in content discrimination through practices like blocking and throttling was swiftly repealed. So quickly, in fact, that the Supreme Court hadn’t gotten a chance yet to weigh in on a petition from AT&T and others to review the legality of reclassification.
Carl Bernstein, a veteran journalist who helped uncover the 1970s Watergate scandal that led to the resignation of President Richard Nixon, says Donald Trump’s presidency “is worse than Watergate.”
Bernstein’s remarks during a CNN interview this week were a rebuke of Trump’s behavior amid the ongoing Russia investigation. Trump has escalated his attacks on the probe in which federal prosecutors are examining his campaign’s ties to Russian operatives who meddled in the 2016 US election.
