News: Retroactive Racketeering Romney Killed Toys R Us


Mitt is not fit to be a jailhouse trustee; but he can utilize his Racketeering ill-gotten gains to run for high political office.

Article ends with question apropos

"Thousands of people have lost billions, federal corruption is rampant, and people have died (including victims and a brother of a United States Attorney).

When is it enough? – Enough!

If the Tom Petters Ponzi Receiver can go after Nuns - to take back Tom’s gift of a handicap elevator - then the least any decent federal agent or court could do, is claw back Mitt’s Lo Jolla, California, beach front, 3-car-garage elevator.

Just sayin….Retroactively speaking. "

Source: The HILL

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt's security detail broke down his apartment's door last year when they believed he was unconscious, ABC News reported Friday.

Citing police radio and sources familiar with the matter, ABC said EPA security workers detailed to Pruitt could not reach him by phone or by knocking on the door of the condo where he was living at the time, which was owned by a health lobbyist married to an energy lobbyist.

The security detail called 911, and dispatchers sent a fire engine and ambulance to the Capitol Hill property.

Security officers then broke down the door and went up to Pruitt's bedroom, ABC said.

Wall Street Journal staffers accuse editor of suppressing story

Source: Politico Europe

Wall Street Journal staff members circulated an anonymously written email on Thursday accusing “a senior editor” — which some later identified as editor-in-chief Gerry Baker — of suppressing a story and accompanying graphic because they were too liberal.

The email urged staffers to begin tweeting the graphics-heavy story at noon, which many did. The story and graphics detailed the country’s recovery from the 2008 financial crisis but also included information on how economic inequality had increased.

Source: The HILL

The three top cable news networks all cut away from President Trump's speech in Ohio on Wednesday before it ended, prompting complaints from the White House.

The speech was set to focus on infrastructure but saw the president go off script to touch on other topics.

It started just after 2 p.m, but within 30 minutes of Trump taking the stage CNN and MSNBC cut away to discussions with analysts and to report other news. Fox News remained on the speech for about ten minutes longer, according to social media reports, before cutting away also.

Fox Business Network, which was also covering the speech, stayed with Trump for the duration of his remarks.

Lost' film predicting rise of Nazism returns to screen

Apropos to the current state of affairs, in America, white supremacy went to the greatest of extremes, in Austria, as a precursor to WWII (doing so while Hitler was in Jail, writing his hateful book).

From the BBC article

Watching it now, the film's scenes of the expulsion are some of the most haunting and prescient.

The city's Jews are told to leave by Christmas Day. Some of the poorer people leave on foot, accompanied by soldiers with bayonets. Whole communities walk slowly through the snow, some on crutches, some carrying Torah scrolls from the synagogues.

A silent film from 1924 predicting the rise of Nazism was found in a Paris flea market in 2015 after being lost for decades. Thanks to a huge fundraising campaign, it has now been restored and returned to cinemas, reports the BBC's Bethany Bell in Vienna.

Crowds gathered, in Austria, en mass, supporting the anti-Jew sentiment.

Kentucky House passes measure to restrict abortions after 11 weeks

Source: The HILL

The Kentucky House of Representatives passed a bill Tuesday banning a common kind of abortion after 11 weeks of pregnancy.

Reuters reported that the Republican-controlled House passed the bill for a second time, approving changes made to the bill by the GOP-controlled state Senate.

The legislation would block doctors from performing an abortion procedure known as dilation and evacuation, except during medical emergencies.

About 16 percent of all abortions in Kentucky are performed using the procedure, which is generally used for pregnancies during the second trimester, according to Reuters.

American Samoa residents sue for citizenship

Source: The HILL

American Samoa residents are suing to earn citizenship at birth, The Associated Press reported Tuesday.

Residents of the U.S. territory aren't considered citizens, but are recognized as U.S. nationals.

This means the residents are not permitted to vote, sponsor relatives immigrating to the U.S. or run for office. However, they do pay taxes to U.S. officials.

The lawsuit was filed by American Samoa residents living in Utah. They are suing for the right to citizenship under the 14th Amendment, which grants American citizenship at birth to anyone born in the country, the AP reported.

INDIANA: New Law - Must disclose past abortions or Go to Jail


What the ...frigging....frug'uck!

______________LINK TO ARTICLE

Some are arguing, in the comments, that the Tweet is completely misleading/ or that the article is innocuous in compare.

But the title of the U.S. News article is this

Indiana Governor Signs Bill Mandating Abortion Information

Seems pretty straight forward - the "Mandating" remark.

Furthermore, arguments that the article is diametric to the Tweet, also is - disingenuous. If anything, the actual sense of the article is worse. Doctors are being "mandated" to report a patient's history, to the state.

In what sense of the word is "Mandating" your private info,
- violation of your privacy By Law - a good thing?

.......................Some Comments say the Tweet is bogus

But the claim the Tweet is not even close - is what's bogus

From another article by "The HILL" the contention of the Tweet is corroborated.


Failures to report complications would result in a Class B misdemeanor, which are punishable by up to 180 days in jail and a fine of up to $1,000 in Indiana.

Remington Files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy

Source: Daily Beast

Remington Outdoor Co., one of America’s oldest gunmakers, has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, according to CNN Money.

The company announced that it was planning to file for bankruptcy in February, and has officially begun the process of restructuring its debt.

Remington, which will remain in business during the bankruptcy, plans on reducing its debt by $700 million and contributing "$145 million to its subsidiaries." Its current owner, Cerberus Capital Management, will give up ownership of the company once the bankruptcy process is over. Remington makes the Bushmaster AR-15-style rifle that was used in the 2012 Sandy Hook shooting. Family members of the 26 Sandy Hook victims sued the company in the wake of the massacre.

This comes as the parent company of Smith & Wesson reported low earnings in March, and Sturm Ruger’s gun sales fell 27 percent at the end of 2017.

Rolling Stone's Jann Wenner says MeToo suffers from absence of due process

Source: AP

Jann Wenner feels the #MeToo movement shows a "real absence of due process."

In an interview with The Associated Press, the Rolling Stone publisher said he feels that mere accusations of sexual impropriety are threatening careers, many times without corroboration, with people losing their jobs over "some of the most harmless (expletive) things."

"Honestly, I do believe it's a bit of a witch hunt," Wenner said in a recent interview at his office in New York. "It's difficult to get due process because there's no real place to adjudicate it except in court, which takes forever."

Wenner made the comments while promoting the recent documentary by award-winning filmmaker Alex Gibney, "Rolling Stone: Stories From the Edge." The four-hour, six-part documentary —which aired last year on HBO — makes its way to iTunes and other online services March 27. It showcases the magazine's 50-year history, and its remarkable news coverage, including the 1972 presidential election covered by Hunter S. Thompson and the Michael Hastings article that took down Gen. Stanley McChrystal, commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan.
