Nice to know "re-accomodate" on United now means "drag you violently out of your seat."

United CEO says airline had to 're-accommodate' passenger, and people are having a riot

"This is an upsetting event to all of us here at United. I apologize for having to re-accommodate these customers. Our team is moving with a sense of urgency to work with the authorities and conduct our own detailed review of what happened."

I actually teared up a little when I saw them dragging the Dr out.

It's great when bosses stand up for their employees but if this is what they all consider correct ptocedures.. they need to get new policies ASAP, imv.

While Garland failed to make it to the Supreme Court, he will still wield significant authority over

the Trump agenda from his current post as chief judge of the D.C. Circuit, a position he’s slated to hold until 2020. Indeed, news stories from the Reagan era described the Washington-based federal appeals court as a key obstacle to that administration’s regulatory agenda.

Colleagues said they expect Garland to be highly engaged when challenges to Trump’s deregulatory moves begin to come before the court.

“What I can say about it, is he would give it exacting and careful scrutiny,” said Jack Quinn, a White House counsel under President Bill Clinton. "I’d be willing to say there’s nobody who’s more knowledgeable about this area of the law."

While the Supreme Court sets the broad rules for the deregulatory process and takes up some of the most high-profile cases, the nitty-gritty of applying those rules to individual agency actions is done by the D.C. Circuit. Often, it’s the only court to review what agencies have done.

“That’s why the D.C. Circuit is commonly referred to as the second most important court in the country,” Quinn noted. “It’s where the vast bulk of cases involving agency action are taken up.”

Interesting!

I'm so glad Jimmy called United out like this.. However..

it is my understanding that they weren't "overbooked".. they had an emergency need to transport their crew so they needed 4 seats.

And, they handled it badly.. I hope they're held responsible for this.. the CEO's statement..

Gabbard supports GOP bill on Syrian refugees


One of Hawaii’s four Democratic representatives in Congress went against party conventions in the wake of continuing tensions over the Syrian civil war and Syrian refugees following last week’s terrorist attacks in Paris.

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard was one of 47 Democrats who voted in favor of a Republican-sponsored bill that would require refugees from Iraq and Syria to receive background checks from the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The heads of the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security, and the director of national intelligence would be required to personally certify that each refugee does not present a security threat.

House Resolution 4038, known as the American Security Against Foreign Enemies Act of 2015, passed the House of Representatives by a 289-137 vote on Thursday. A total of 135 Democrats voted against the measure.

How Tulsi Gabbard became Assads mouthpiece in Washington

By Josh Rogin January 29

snip//

The Bashar al-Assad regime in Syria has had a quiet but well-funded lobbying effort in Washington since well before he began murdering his own people. But that influence campaign’s clearest triumph came only this month, when it succeeded in bringing Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) to Damascus and having her parrot Assad’s propaganda on her return.

snip//

Upon her return, Gabbard referenced those Syrians in interviews and op-eds to reinforce her long-held opposition to what she calls the U.S. “regime change” policy in Syria. She also asserted there are no moderate rebels in Syria and that the United States is funding and arming al-Qaeda and the Islamic State. Neither is true, but both match the talking points that the Assad regime has been pushing for the entirety of the war.


snip//

Principled opposition to U.S. intervention in Syria is one thing. Becoming a tool of a mass murderer’s propaganda and influence campaign is another. Gabbard’s cooperation with the Syrian regime damages her effort to promote herself as a legitimate foreign policy voice.

This is before trump's strike..

Actually, gabbard is giving a War Criminal Cover.. Dean has her #

‘No different than Trump with Putin’: Howard Dean says Tulsi Gabbard should resign for defending Assad

“I think it’s outrageous,” a terse Dean responded. “There’s a long well-known history, both in our intelligence community, Amnesty International and Doctors Without Borders. Every single one of these agencies has said that Assad is using chemical weapons. He’s a barbarian, he’s murdered half a million of his own people.”

“I can’t imagine how you could make a statement like that, especially being on the Foreign Relations Committee,” he continued. “I can’t imagine what could possibly be going through her head.”

“To that end, you put a tweet out, I’m going to read it to everybody, okay? ” Witt responded before quoting Dean on Twitter writing, “This is a disgrace. Gabbard should not be in Congress,” along with a link to Gabbard’s comments.

“All she’s asking for is proof though,” Witt pressed.

“If you’re on the Foreign Relations Committee and you haven’t seen the proof in the last five and a half years, there’s something the matter with you,” Dean shot back. “I am tired of people making excuses. This is no different than Trump making excuses for Putin. We’ve had enough of this.”
