Portland train killer with alt-right ties accused of assaulting black inmate

Source: Raw Story

MARTIN CIZMAR 15 AUG 2018 AT 13:25 ET

The man accused of harassing a pair of Muslim teen girls on a train and then stabbing three men who asked him to stop has now been accused of assaulting a black man while in jail, reports The Oregonian.

Jeremy Christian is facing murder charges from the May 2017 confrontation, which began with him verbally harassing two Muslim girls who were headed home from school. Three white men acted as Good Samaritans and tried to stop the abuse, leading to a confrontation that culminated with Christian stabbing three people, two of whom were killed.


Christian’s attorneys have said he was pushed by one of the men he stabbed—Christian pled “not guilty of anything but defending myself against violent aggression by [alleged victim] Micah Fletcher”—and both prosecutors and the transit agency that operates the trains still refuse to release the video of the run-up to the confrontation.

Christian now faces a fourth-degree assault charge, in which he allegedly “intentionally, knowingly or recklessly cause[d] physical harm” to an inmate named Aundre Dupree Mills who was held on a probation violation. The incident happened on July 29 at Multnomah County jail.

In the weeks before the MAX stabbings, Christian attended an alt-right rally in Portland where he was videotaped making racist comments and making a Nazi salute.

Business looks to Kavanaugh to extend Supreme Court hot streak

By LORRAINE WOELLERT 08/15/2018 05:09 AM EDT

Abortion rights and civil liberties have so far dominated the fight over Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court, but his confirmation would mean a victory for another constituency: business.

Industry groups, led by the Chamber of Commerce, have spent decades bringing lawsuits and filing briefs to the top court in hopes of reining in regulatory power and winning rulings favorable to business. And court-watchers believe Kavanaugh, who was recommended to President Donald Trump by the conservative Federalist Society and worked in the pro-business Bush administration, would help industry continue its hot streak at the court.

The Supreme Court last term was the most business-friendly in modern memory, according to the Constitutional Accountability Center, a progressive public-interest law firm. The group concluded in a new report that Kavanaugh would tilt the court even more in business’ favor, noting that the high court under Chief Justice John Roberts already has sided with the Chamber, which the center views as a proxy for all business interests, in more than 70 percent of relevant cases since 2006.

That’s in contrast to the Chamber’s 56 percent win record under Roberts’ predecessor, Chief Justice William Rehnquist, and 43 percent under Chief Justice Warren Burger, according to the center.

Trump-Amazon feud shadows critical Postal Service report

BY JORDAN FABIAN - 08/15/18 06:00 AM EDT

The Trump administration is expected to release a report in the coming weeks on reforming the U.S. Postal Service (USPS), an event that could revive President Trump’s feud with Amazon.

Trump earlier this year assembled a task force to recommend fixes for the Postal Service’s fiscal woes soon after he accused the online retail giant of abusing its relationship with the USPS.

Business groups worry the task force could recommend an increase in shipping rates, something that could threaten Amazon’s lucrative arrangement with the USPS.

A group of major U.S. shippers sent a letter last week to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, who leads the task force, urging him not to raise package rates.

http://thehill.com/homenews/administration/401872-trump-amazon-feud-shadows-critical-postal-service-report

First and foremost the reason why the USPS is in trouble is because of the asshole by the name Tom "fucking" Delay and his republican cronies making the service pay benefits 75 years into the future, not because of some mail service fees, so fuck you.
No other entity in this country has to do this, Amazon, GE, Halliburton and for that matter Steve Mnuchin and his fucking hedge fund, or this fucking traitor walking around conspiring with the Russians....................... ......................so get the story straight.........................

Amazon on the other hand makes and gives Jeff Bezo's over 250 million dollars a day for a man and his hedge fund mentality that doesn't pay shit in wages, and benefits, and charges people fees to become "Prime Members" in Whole Foods for example......................so this fucking task face should understand that the USPS is enshrined in the Constitution, and you cannot privatize it, without a Constitutional Convention.....................

Texas waitress quits 'dream job' at Hooters over racist bullying from giggling white family

MARTIN CIZMAR
15 AUG 2018 AT 08:28 ET

A Texas woman quit her “dream job” as a Hooters waitress after racial abuse was written on a receipt by a customer, reports the Times Record News.

Elina Blackstock, 22, is from Tokyo and was working at the wing restaurant in Wichita Falls until Monday, when she quit after getting a 70 cent tip on a $70 meal with the misspelled word “jaundice” written on it. The term is a slur for Asian Americans.


“The fact that they made a comment on my race, my skin tone, that really hurt me so bad,” she said in a video interview with the Times Record News. “Because if they said I was a bad server, and they made a comment about it, I could change that, I could fix it. But when they mention my skin tone there’s no way I can fix that, because I was born with it.”

Blackstock said the table, which was a white family, had been rude and mocked her for being Asian.

“Get a different job damn jandice [sic],” was written on the receipt.

Investigative journalist tells MSNBC how 'Trump Tower became a cathedral of money laundering'

Investigative journalist tells MSNBC how 'Trump Tower became a cathedral of money laundering'

TRAVIS GETTYS
15 AUG 2018 AT 08:35 ET

An investigative journalist explained on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that President Donald Trump’s real estate business was essentially a money laundering front.

Craig Unger alleges in his new book, “House of Putin, House of Trump,” that the president had been compromised by Russian intelligence for years through his ties to mobsters who pumped money into his family’s real estate empire.


“I go back nearly 40 years, and I see essentially the greatest intelligence operation of our times,” Unger said. “It started off in 1984 with a man who has ties to the Russian mafia, and he meets with Donald Trump in the Trump Tower, the supreme moment of Donald Trump becoming a master of real estate in the United States — and what we end up seeing is Trump Tower become sort of a cathedral of money laundering.”

That mob associate paid $6 million in cash for five condominiums, and Unger tracked hundreds of similar transactions over the following three decades.

“That sets off a pattern that goes on for the next 30 years or so, in which over 1,300 condos are sold in what appears to be money laundering,” Unger said. “They have two characteristics. One, they are all cash purchases. Two, they are shell purchases, they’re anonymous purchases. The records don’t show who the true owners are.”

Oregon homeowner's association refuses to let bus come into neighborhood to pick up a girl with

special needs: lawsuit

SARAH K. BURRIS
14 AUG 2018 AT 21:26 ET


A child with disabilities is suing the Oregon Senate Republican leader and a Salem homeowners association board after it voted to bar a school from picking the child up.

According to The Oregonian, Sen. Jackie Winters serves on the HOA board that is allegedly violating federal and state housing laws.


Parents Erika Hernandez and Paolo Regalado are asking the court to allow the school bus into the Golf Course Estates to pick up their daughter for school and pay unspecified damages and legal fees. They also want the HOA to create a plan to provide equal access for residents with disabilities.

The parents explained that their daughter “has developmental disabilities and attends a special needs school.”

The girl’s school district developed an Individualized Education Plan for her that specifies “due to her disability and the associated concern that she may run into the street, she is to be provided transportation to school in which the school bus picks her up directly in front of her house,” the lawsuit alleges. “(Her) medical providers also found that (her) disability required that she be provided an assisted pick-up and drop-off in front of her home.”
