1) SCOTUS publicly defecates on trial by jury in the name of countering racial prejudice
Source: Los Angeles Times

“The Supreme Court took a strong new stand against racial bias in jury rooms, ruling for the first time that reports of racist comments by jurors may require setting aside a verdict and holding a new trial. Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, announcing the court’s decision Monday, wrote that the ‘imperative to purge racial prejudice from the administration of justice’ requires setting aside the traditional rule that bars judges from second-guessing what went on in the jury room. The 5-3 decision announced a limited exception to that rule against second-guessing juries. The new rule covers cases in which ‘one or more jurors made statements exhibiting overt racial bias that cast serious doubt on the fairness and impartiality of the jury’s deliberations and resulting verdict.'” (03/06/17)

“House Republicans on Monday unveiled their long-awaited legislation to repeal and replace ObamaCare. The two measures dismantle the core aspects of ObamaCare, including its subsidies to help people buy coverage, its expansion of Medicaid, its taxes and its mandates for people to have insurance. … In its place, Republicans would put in place a new system centered on a tax credit to help people buy insurance. That tax credit would range from $2,000 to $4,000 a year, increasing with someone’s age.” [editor’s note: Why tie the credit to health insurance? Why not just lower the income tax demand on Americans by $2,000 to $4,000 a year and let THEM decide what to do with THEIR money? – TLK] (03/06/17)

“The Supreme Court announced Monday that it will put off a ruling on the rights of transgender students. Instead, the justices asked an appeals court in Virginia to reconsider the case of Gavin Grimm, a transgender boy who was denied the right to use the boys’ restroom in his high school. Lawyers for the Obama administration had weighed in on his behalf and said transgender students had a right to be treated based on their ‘gender identity,’ not their gender at birth [sic]. Based on that guidance, the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals had ruled in favor of the student.” (03/06/17)

Source: Bloomberg

“The U.S. Transportation Security Administration has declined to say exactly where — and how — employees will be touching air travelers as part of the more invasive physical pat-down procedure it recently ordered. But the agency does expect some passengers to consider the examination unusual. In fact, the TSA decided to inform local police just in case anyone calls to report an ‘abnormal’ federal frisking, according to a memo from an airport trade association obtained by Bloomberg News. The physical search, for those selected to have one, is what the agency described as a more ‘comprehensive’ screening, replacing five separate kinds of pat-downs it previously used. The decision to alert local and airport police raises a question of just how intimate the agency’s employees may get.” (03/06/17)

“President Donald Trump signed a new executive order Monday banning immigration from six Muslim-majority countries, notably dropping Iraq from January’s previous order. The new travel ban comes six weeks after Trump’s original executive order was rolled out to chaos and confusion at airports nationwide, and eventually blocked by a federal court. The new version exempts people who hold current visas and drops an indefinite ban on Syrian refugees, reducing it to 120 days. It also makes clear that lawful permanent residents are excluded from ban.” (03/06/17)

7) AR: Hutchinson seeks new restrictions on Medicaid plan
Source: San Francisco Chronicle

“Arkansas would move about 60,000 people off its hybrid Medicaid expansion and require some participants to work under a series of restrictions the governor proposed Monday, even as the future of the federal health overhaul remains murky. Republican Gov. Asa Hutchinson said he’ll ask the federal government to approve the new restrictions by June and hopes to implement them by 2018. More than 300,000 people are on Arkansas’ hybrid program, which uses Medicaid funds to purchase private insurance for the poor. The program was created in 2013 as an alternative to expanding Medicaid under the federal health law. Hutchinson is pushing for the changes even as fellow Republicans in Washington are split on how to follow through on campaign promises to repeal and replace the health overhaul. The proposed restrictions are on top of other changes to the program championed by Hutchinson and approved last year.” (03/06/17)

“A US Navy ship was forced to change course when fast-moving Iranian vessels approached it in the Strait of Hormuz, US officials say. The USNS Invincible changed direction when the other vessels came within 600 yards before stopping.

9) US Senate approves measure to kill Obama-era contractor rule

“Republicans in the U.S. Senate passed a measure to eliminate an Obama administration rule that would require prospective federal contractors to report violations of more than a dozen U.S. labor and employment laws. On a 49-48 vote, the Senate endorsed a joint resolution under the Congressional Review Act (CRA) to overturn the contractor disclosure rule. The U.S. House of Representatives approved it last month, so all that is left to kill the regulation is President Donald Trump’s signature on the resolution. The resolution targeting the contractor regulation, dubbed the ‘blacklisting rule’ by critics, is a part of a larger Republican effort to use the CRA to rollback a swath of federal regulations finalized in the last seven months of the Obama administration. ” (03/06/17)

10) Waze and other traffic-dodging apps prompt cities to game the algorithms
Source: USA Today

“Call it planners versus algorithms. Smartphone apps like Waze, a godsend for some road warriors because they shave minutes and even hours off their commutes with their creative detours off main highways, are causing headaches for city planners. Using crosswalks, wider sidewalks and traffic lights, these transportation engineers aim to make neighborhood traffic slow, safe, and friendly for pedestrians — not send frustrated commuters barreling down side roads. But the GPS-enabled computer programs often don’t know that, or care. Their creators, such as Waze (owned by Google), are sympathetic, to a degree. They may give cities tips on how to effectively game the program so a neighborhood detour doesn’t seem that appealing. But at the end of the day, the purpose of the bots is to make use of all available road space, main thoroughfare or country lane. The upshot is mounting frustration from cities, which are trying to thwart computer systems that are savvier than ever.” (03/06/17)

11) NASA proposes massive Mars shield to enable human colony
Source: Raw Story

“Mars seems to be humanity’s best bet for a colony outside Earth, though the Red Planet is notoriously inhospitable due to a lack of atmosphere and a barren landscape. Science, however, might be well on its way to a fix for that. Researchers at NASA proposed creating a giant magnetic shield around the planet that would create an atmosphere slightly more hospitable to humans, enabling our species to colonize it. The magnetic shield, presented last week at the Planetary Science Vision 2050 Workshop in Washington, D.C., would protect the planet from the solar winds that have blasted its atmosphere away over time. ‘This situation then eliminates many of the solar wind erosion processes that occur within the planet’s ionosphere and upper atmosphere, allowing the Martian atmosphere to grow in pressure and temperature over time,’ researchers said in a paper on the subject. That growth in pressure and temperature would, ideally, make Mars suitable for human life.” (03/06/17)

“Sales of guns and ammunition in the United States have dropped precipitously since Election Day, according to FBI statistics, trade groups, gun shop owners and corporate reports, what many say is the result of electing a president who has vowed to protect gun rights. But that overall decline has been accompanied by some unusual growth: Gun clubs and shops that cater to black and LGBT clients say there has been an uptick in interest in firearms since November among those who fear that racial and gender-based violence could increase during Donald Trump’s presidency.” (03/05/17)

“North Korea on Monday fired four banned ballistic missiles that flew about 1,000 kilometers (620 miles) on average, with three of them landing in waters that Japan claims as its exclusive economic zone, South Korean and Japanese officials said. The test-launches appeared to be a reaction to huge U.S.-South Korean military drills that those countries consider routine but that Pyongyang insists are an invasion rehearsal. It was not immediately clear the exact type of missile fired, but the tests will be viewed as a provocation by the Trump administration, which is working on its policy for North Korea. The New York Times reported over the weekend that the United States still can’t effectively counter Pyongyang’s actions despite efforts to perfect cyber and electronic strikes against North Korea’s missile program.” (03/06/17)

“Suppose I say, ‘I, Jason Brennan, being of sound mind, promise to obey my frequent co-author Peter Jaworski in all things.’ Suppose Peter and I sign a contract — I agree to follow his orders and in exchange, he pays me $10,000 a month. Now, such a contract might indeed obligate me to do some things. If Peter demands I refrain from watching House of Cards, the contract obligates me to follow. But suppose Peter says, ‘I demand you murder an innocent Syrian child, and, in addition, that you stop feeding your own children.’ I have no duty to obey Peter here; on the contrary, my pre-existing duties to avoid killing innocent children and to feed my own children trump my promise. Now one might believe that promises to governments are different. But unless we have a good argument to that effect, we don’t have any reason to believe it.” (03/06/17)

26) Did Obama spy on Trump?
Source: USA Today
by Glenn Harlan Reynolds

“So President Trump set off a firestorm over the weekend with a series of tweets alleging that Obama had tapped Trump Tower. But getting hung up on imprecise language in the president’s tweets isn’t the right way to look at things. What seems to be at true is that the Obama administration spied on some of Trump’s associates and we don’t know exactly how much information was collected under what authority and who was targeted. As former prosecutor Andrew McCarthy summarizes in National Review, the Obama Justice Department considered a criminal investigation aimed at a number of Trump’s associates. When they didn’t find anything criminal, they converted the investigation into an intelligence probe under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. Elements of that story have been confirmed by The New York Times, the BBC and McClatchy newspapers. FISA surveillance has to be approved by a special court, which almost always allows the government to spy on people when asked. But when the Justice Department asked to spy on several of Trump’s associates, the court refused permission, according to the BBC.” (03/06/17)

“Today there are more than a million Americans living in Mexico. Most of them are retirees. They have chosen to retain their American citizenship.

They still eat hamburgers instead of enchiladas, they still pay taxes to the IRS, they still speak English at home, they still vote here, and some of them even root for American sports teams. Should those Americans be considered bad people — unpatriotic people — for not pledging allegiance to the flag of Mexico? Of course not! They have every right to just live their lives the way they choose. Who cares that they have chosen to remain American citizens? This is one of the aspects of open immigration that anti-immigrant types just don’t get.

And this is just the first wave of pro-business actions: Trump has pledged in an executive order to remove two existing regulations for every new one. He’s already removed 90 in his first weeks in office, and if his record thus far is any guide, there are more giveaways to come.” [editor’s note: With all the regulations imposed by govt agencies, with no process of Congress passing new laws, there are clearly enough worthy of repeal to be covered by this plan – SAT] (03/06/17)

32) Cryptocurrency will survive and thrive, but will Bitcoin?

by Thomas L Knapp

“March 2017 came in like a lion for Bitcoin as, for the first time ever, one Bitcoin sold for more than one ounce of gold. As I write this, the Bitcoin currently in circulation, if sold at current prices, would bring in more than $20 billion US (that’s nearly 12 times the market capitalization of its closest competitor cryptocurrency, Ethereum). As it enters its ninth year, the future looks very bright for an idea that many have spent the previous eight years scoffing at and predicting the imminent demise of. But this time they may be right. Bitcoin is in crisis, and the crisis could kill it.” (03/06/17)

“Did you know that in our ‘great’ country, the United States of America, land of the free and home of the brave, one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all, if you seek to educate your own children, according to the First Amendment of the Constitution and the dictates of your conscience, you are liable to be arrested and have them kidnapped from their home by the statist education authorities? That’s right. In America, our supposedly free country, we have a compulsory education system in which statist education bureaucrats claim legal authority to force you and your children during their entire formative years to participate in a government brainwashing indoctrination program. Any resistance can be met with violence on the part of the government goons.” (03/06/17)

34) Twisting slowly in the French wind

by Arthur Goldhammer

“The gods apparently have no love for François Fillon, who for the moment remains the candidate of the center-right Republican Party for the French presidency. They poured rain on the impassioned speech he gave to supporters this Sunday at the Place du Trocadéro opposite the Eiffel Tower in Paris. As pressure mounted from within his own party to quit the race, Fillon sought to mobilize his troops in a final desperate effort to rescue his candidacy. For the conservative politician from rural west France, who has been in government since he turned 27 in 1981, the last few months have marked a vertiginous fall from near-certainty of becoming France’s next president to pending indictment for misappropriation of government funds. At the end of November he emerged as the surprise winner of the first-ever Republican primary, defeating both former Prime Minister Alain Juppé, the favorite in early polling, and former President Nicolas Sarkozy, under whom Fillon had served for five years as prime minister.” (03/06/17)

Watson posed semi-topless for a shoot in Vanity Fair, and, since then, war has broken out among feminist tweeters over whether or not this means she is still a feminist. … what this faux panic over breasts does reveal is how warped feminism’s idea of choice and equality is. Watson claimed that feminism was about ‘choice.’ But contemporary feminism’s stance on nudity and breasts in particular has been anti-choice for quite some time.” (03/06/17)

He told his audience that our Navy is now ‘the smallest it’s been since World War I.’ (This is at best a misleading statement.) He promised to increase the size of the nation’s naval fleet, to expand the number of operational aircraft carriers to 12 from the current 10 (which is still more than the rest of the world’s navies, combined, have in their fleets).

“The latest campus speech controversy erupted last week at Middlebury College, a liberal arts college in Vermont, where protesters shouted down and chased off invited speaker Charles Murray, a fellow at the American Enterprise Institute whom the Southern Poverty Law Center deems a white nationalist. ‘The demonstrations began conventionally enough, with several hundred organized protesters packed into a lecture hall Thursday, chanting and holding signs,’ The Washington Post reported. ‘They ended with Murray being forced to move his lecture and later being surrounded by an unruly mob made up of students and ‘outside agitators’ as he tried to leave campus.’ That this incident turned physical has provided the perfect metaphor for conservatives who have long characterized college students as illiberal ‘snowflakes’ who want to silence anyone they disagree with.” [editor’s note: That this incident “turning physical” put a professor in a neck-collar for her injuries at the hands of these thugs should be of concern to any honorable civil libertarian – SAT]

“Another attempt to convince us all of the merits of a universal basic income over in The Guardian. This is based on the experiment done in Dauphin in the 1970s. Some of us here very much like the idea but as we do so that means that we’ve also thought through the idea a little more than some others have …. The first problem with the proof being used here, that Dauphin experiment, is that it wasn’t a universal basic income, was not in fact a right to a certain income unconditionally. Rather, what was tested was a negative income tax. If you earn less than x then that income will be topped up to x. And there was a tax rate applied too, you only kept 50% of earned income over a certain level. This is an important point because it mirrors the development of the idea itself.” (03/06/17)

42) What defines a leader most
Source: Christian Science Monitor
by John Yemma

“Has there ever been a more popular subject for inspirational office posters, self-help books, or convention speakers than leadership? The business world is swimming in the mythology of great leaders and tip sheets on being like them — from dressing for success to winning through intimidation, from searching for excellence to mastering the art of the deal. Leadership isn’t just aphorism and affectation, of course. It is a necessary quality. At one time or another, most of us need a little direction, a little cheering on, someone to carry us through hard times, provide us with air cover. Some people are better at this than others. Sure, there are amusingly skewed leaders, as in the needy boss played by Steve Carell in The Office (‘Would I rather be feared or loved? Easy. Both. I want people to be afraid of how much they love me.’) or the smaller-than-life despot played by Charlie Chaplin in The Great Dictator.” (03/05/17)

43) Shakespeare’s inner economist
Source: Cato Unbound
by Sarah Skwire

“One of the central observations of public choice theory is that we are the same people, with the same controlling interests, when we are in voting booth or in positions of political power as we are when we go to the grocery store. Shakespeare’s Richard III provides further strong evidence that Shakespeare knew things as well as Tullock. As a result of his many murders, and in spite of widespread suspicion of his crimes, Richard of Gloucester has maneuvered his way into being offered the crown of England by the Lord Mayor and the citizens of London. Aware that the Mayor, Aldermen, and a group of citizens are about to arrive to press the crown upon him, Richard carefully constructs the circumstances under which this ‘high request’ will be made of him. He arranges to be discovered at prayer, standing between two bishops, and holding a Bible. He and his closest advisor, Buckingham, assert throughout the scene that Richard’s modesty and piety prevent him from even dreaming of taking the throne. With great show of reluctance, however, he finally does.” (03/06/17)

“We have written before about our numerous and low-hitting tax brackets, which have survived decades with little or no change. The effect of keeping the brackets the same while incomes and the cost of living rise is called ‘bracket creep,’ and has the effect of taxing the poor deeper into poverty. In addition, the Foundation has, on many occasions, testified that we can achieve real savings in administrative costs by not dealing with the very poor in our tax system. Tax returns are among the most complicated documents in state government, and if we can get out of processing a hundred thousand of them, we would be looking at serious money savings that could help ease the burden on taxpayers.” (03/06/17)

by Liliana Segura

“Plea deals are central to the machinery of the criminal justice system — and often the best of a bad set of options for the innocent and guilty alike. But the result is that people often plead guilty to crimes they did not commit, a problem so pervasive the Innocence Project just launched a new campaign to raise awareness of the issue. In cases that turn on flawed forensics — a growing concern across the country — the effect is to preserve junk science rather than expose and correct it. … In the years since [Angela] Garcia went to prison, state actors central to her conviction — including the trial judge — have been arrested for ethical crimes, seriously calling into question their handling of her case. And perhaps most importantly, evidence uncovered in the months after the plea deal last spring shows that Bell and his colleague Mary McGrath were perfectly aware that their 2001 conviction of Garcia was based on junk science. Rather than grapple with the possibility that they had wrongly imprisoned a young mother who lost her children, Sanchez says, they ‘offered the deal as a way to make the case go away as fast as possible.'” (03/05/17)

“The noted Russian mathematician and Soviet-era dissident, Igor Shafarevich, who died on February 19, 2017 at the age of 93, ended his 1975 book, The Socialist Phenomenon, with the following conclusion and indictment: ‘Most socialist doctrines and movements are literally saturated with the mood of death, catastrophe and destruction . . . One could regard the death of mankind as the final result to which the development of socialism leads.’ Is this too extreme a statement? Perhaps not, given that learned historians of the communist experience in the twentieth century had estimated that in the name of building the bright, beautiful socialist society of the future as many as 150 million to possibly 200 million unarmed, innocent men, women and children were shot, tortured, starved, or worked to death in labor camps as ‘enemies of the people.'” (03/06/17)

“The strange sight of liberal America participating in a neo-McCarthyite assault on Trump appointees, not on the grounds not of their inherent racism and stupidity, but because they have contacts with Russia, is among the more surreal spectacles of modern political history. At what point did Russia become the official enemy of the U.S.? Wasn’t it just yesterday that Bush Jr looked into Putin’s eyes and declared him a honorable man? The truth is, of course, that Russia never stopped being the enemy. The internalized ethos of the cold war, the anti communist hysteria of post WW2 has always been there. The resentful flinty heart of America tolerates no disobedience. No country exhibiting the slightest autonomy is allowed to escape punishment and censure. The shining light on the hill symbolism is one that demands nobody else dare to exhibit anything that resembles their own leadership role globally.” (03/06/17)

“It’s actually easy to find the non aggression principle in the Quran, ‘There shall be no compulsion in religion’ (Quran 2:256). Scholars say this verse is only prohibiting forced conversion, but the surrounding verses concern creed not proselytizing, so I see no reason not to apply it universally. The Arabic word ‘din’ actually means ‘complete way of life’ not just ‘religion.’ It seems to me that a complete way of life with no compulsion means a religion, a family life and even a political order with no compulsion. Actions which are coerced have no moral value, and the aim of Islam is to place moral value in every action, so coercion can never accomplish this. It’s also easy to find the free market in the Quran, ‘Do not consume one another’s property unjustly, except that there be trade amongst you by mutual consent.’ (Quran 4:29) ‘Thou shalt not steal’ implicitly presumes property rights.” (03/05/17)

Karp’s argument is that the relationship between politics and war is a two way street. Politicians use war for their own, domestic ends. But war and the threats of war, also fundamentally change the essence of government and alter what people expect their government can and should do for them.” (03/05/17)
