“Ukraine’s chief prosecutor froze four pending investigations into President Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort as the U.S. finalized a weapons sale to the Eastern European country. Those cases were put into the ‘long-term box,’ one Ukrainian lawmaker, Volodymyr Ariev, told The New York Times, so as to avoid upsetting President Trump, who has bristled publicly and privately at special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. ‘In every possible way, we will avoid irritating the top American officials,’ Ariev told the Times. ‘We shouldn’t spoil relations with the administration.’ The decision to halt the investigations came shortly after the U.S. approved the sale of 210 Javelin anti-tank missiles and 35 launching units to the Ukrainian government, the Times reported.” (05/02/18)

“Cambridge Analytica, the political consultancy at the centre of the Facebook data-sharing scandal, is shutting down. The firm was accused of improperly obtaining personal information on behalf of political clients. According to Facebook, data about up to 87 million of its members was harvested by a quiz app and then passed on to the political consultancy. The social network said its own probe into the matter would continue. ‘This doesn’t change our commitment and determination to understand exactly what happened and make sure it doesn’t happen again,’ said a spokesman. ‘We are continuing with our investigation in cooperation with the relevant authorities.’” (05/02/18)

4) Trump calls Justice Department “rigged,” threatens action
Source: Washington Post

“President Trump lashed out at the Justice Department on Wednesday, complaining that he may have to ‘get involved’ amid an ongoing dispute between conservative lawmakers and the department over a memo outlining the topics being investigated by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III. The president’s tweet suggests that friction may be rising again between Trump and Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein, who just a day earlier declared at a public event that ‘the Justice Department is not going to be extorted’ by public and private threats. … Precisely what the president is complaining about is unclear, but on Monday, Justice Department officials notified Reps. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) and Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) that they would not be receiving an unredacted copy of a memo outlining the scope of Mueller’s inquiry, according to officials familiar with the matter. A heavily redacted version of that memo has emerged in the pretrial hearings of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, but Meadows and Jordan, two of the president’s fiercest defenders, want to see the rest of it.” [editor’s note: The public, not just Congress, is entitled to know what the Justice Department is up to – TLK] (05/02/18)

“A Saudi man held at the US military prison at Guantanamo Bay who pleaded guilty to war crimes has been transferred back to Saudi Arabia. Ahmed al-Darbi pleaded guilty in 2014 to the 2002 bomb attack on an oil tanker in the waters off Yemen. The transfer was announced by the Pentagon in a statement on Wednesday. It is the first time under Donald Trump’s presidency that a detainee has left the military prison at Guantanamo Bay, and leaves 40 prisoners there. Darbi’s transfer was cleared after he met the terms of an agreement following his prior admission to guilt, the Pentagon statement said. Under the plea deal, Darbi agreed not to sue the US over his capture and the conditions of his confinement.” (05/02/18)

Not all of us have to think politically the same way. I’ve said to people sometimes, ‘You know, I’ve been black all my life. You don’t have to tell me how to be black.” Rice said people should never assume they know someone’s mind based on a person’s race.” [editor’s note: Nor should they assume they know what Kanye meant by “sounds like a choice;” so far I’ve heard at least three different ways that can be interpreted – SAT] (05/02/18)

8) WA: Businesses in Seattle could pay millions to help city deal with homeless problem
Source: Fox News

“Seattle’s tech industry is booming. Amazon has hired more than 35,000 employees in the city since 2010. Google is building a campus that will be able to expand its workforce by 4,000 workers. Facebook is also growing its Seattle footprint. Downtown Seattle has led the world in the number of construction cranes for several years running thanks largely to the influx of high-paying tech jobs. But now Seattle is poised to lower the boom on its largest and most successful job creators. The city council is widely expected to pass a head tax of 26 cents on every hour worked in the city. It will hit companies that have gross revenues topping $20 million a year. The tax revenue would be used to address the city’s growing homeless problem. When business owner Saul Spady, who founded Cre8ive Empowerment, compared this to a sin tax on jobs, he was dismissed by a city council member.” [editor’s note: Sometimes telling the truth will do that – SAT] (05/02/18)

“The US state of Iowa has approved an abortion law banning most abortions once a foetal heartbeat is detected. Republican lawmakers passed the bill in back-to-back votes, sending it to the governor’s desk to sign into law. If it comes into effect the bill will ban most abortions after six weeks of pregnancy, and rights groups say it will be the country’s most restrictive. Critics argue it will make having an abortion illegal before most women even realise they are pregnant. Iowa’s Republican Governor Kim Reynolds has not said if she will sign the bill.” (05/02/18)

“The Boy Scouts of America doubled down Wednesday on its quest to become the scouting organization of choice for boys and girls, announcing it will drop ‘Boy’ from the name of its signature program. But the decision didn’t impress the Girl Scout organization, which noted no new, ‘girl-specific’ programming. ‘Girl Scouts is the premier leadership development organization for girls,’ Sylvia Acevedo, CEO of Girl Scouts of the USA, said in a statement. ‘We are, and will remain, the first choice for girls and parents.’ Both groups, which have been at odds since the Boy Scouts decided to open its doors to girls, have been struggling with declining membership. The umbrella organization will retain its name, Boy Scouts of America or BSA. The term Cub Scouts, for kids 7-10 years old, is gender neutral and also will go unchanged. Boy Scouts, which includes kids from 10 to 17, will become Scouts BSA in February.” (05/02/18)

In a lawsuit filed Tuesday in Arizona, Nikola claims Tesla TSLA, copied the design of its big rigs, which Nikola first unveiled in May 2016. According to a court filing, in early November 2017, Nikola sent a cease-and-desist letter to Tesla pointing out features on the electric Tesla Semi that resembled features on its own semi trucks — including the wraparound windshield, mid-entry door and aerodynamic fuselage — and demanded Tesla delay the public unveiling of the Semi until the infringement issues were settled. Tesla did not respond, the filing said, and Elon Musk unveiled the truck at an event in Hawthorne, Calif., on Nov. 16.” [editor’s note: Because before Nikola, there were no such things as wrap-around windshields, mid-entry doors, or aerodynamic fuselages.

Sciutto was referring to comments Stein made on a CNN interview today about America’s undeniable, entirely factual and well-documented history of meddling in other countries’ elections, including a citation of an ex-CIA Director’s recent admission that the US has interfered in foreign electoral processes and continues to do so to this day.

22) Trump’s political theater on Iran
Source: Reuters
by Peter Van Buren

“Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who on Monday presented what he claimed was evidence of a secret Iranian nuclear weapons program, may have added fuel to a looming foreign policy crisis for the United States. On May 12, President Donald Trump is expected to decide to re-impose sanctions on Iran under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. That will significantly increase the chances of war, and may be exactly the outcome Washington seeks. The 2015 agreement, signed by the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council (including China and Russia), plus Germany, requires the American president to certify every three months that Iran’s nuclear program is in compliance with the deal. In return, the next quarter’s economic sanctions are waived against the Islamic Republic. Earlier this year, Trump warned he was waiving sanctions for the final time, setting the May deadline for significant changes in the agreement to be made. Failing those changes, Trump’s non-signature would trigger sanctions to snap into place.” (05/02/18)

23) Why Washington turns a blind eye to Egypt’s thugocracy
Source: Cato Institute
by Doug Bandow

“Alas, the United States and other Western governments have gone soft on Egyptian repression because they value stability more than liberty. They assume that only obsequious support can preserve Egypt as an ally. However, Cairo is not going to war upon Israel, whether or not Washington subsidizes el-Sisi’s dictatorship. Interdicting traffic through the Suez Canal would be self-defeating for any Egyptian government. And the regime would retain significant incentive — access to spare parts and training for U.S.-supplied weapons, for instance — to maintain positive contacts with the West. However, New York University’s Alon Ben-Meir dismissed the possibility of democracy succeeding in Egypt and reported that ‘Egyptian officials prefer that concerns over human rights violations be addressed behind the scenes in order to not embarrass and weaken el-Sisi’s position in the eyes of the public.’ No doubt. From their perspective, the less said the better. However, pious private complaints, of which there have been many, evidently have had no impact.” (05/02/18)

27) Poll: Nearly half of Americans embrace “guaranteed jobs”
Source: Investors Business Daily
by staff

“‘Guaranteed jobs’ is fast becoming the latest rallying cry for Democrats. And a new poll finds that 46% of Americans approve of it. Don’t read too much into that poll result. Last week, we noted that a liberal policy group urged Democrats at a leadership meeting to adopt ‘guaranteed jobs’ as a pillar of their economic plan. In short order, Bernie Sanders said he would soon unveil his plan to achieve that. Under it, anyone who ‘wants or needs’ a job but couldn’t find one on their own would be guaranteed a government job paying $15 an hour and generous benefits. Other prominent Democrats have latched on to this plan, including those with presidential ambitions like Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand and Cory Booker. Maybe they are on to something? When Rasmussen asked about the idea in its latest poll, it found that 46% favor it. The idea of government-guaranteed jobs isn’t exactly new. The Senate proposed such a guarantee in 1977. The far-left Nation magazine resurrected it in 2014, saying the country could ‘easily afford’ to guarantee every American a job. … The only thing lacking here (besides common sense) is context.” (05/02/18)

28) Let’s see more Michelle Wolf-style nastiness in political journalism
Source: Reason
by JD Tuccille

“Give us more Michelle Wolf. We need more of the suddenly-controversial comedian not because she was so great in her appearance at this past weekend’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner — few such contentious performances are delivered so lamely. No, we need more of the likes of Wolf because the White House-focused hostility in her appearance at the annual journalists’ dinner was a hell of a lot healthier than the smug, we’re-all-on-the-same-team chumminess that usually prevails at these gatherings. Wolf did go after Democrats, including a Chappaquiddick joke that was a few decades overdue. And she zapped journalists themselves: ‘You guys are obsessed with Trump. Did you used to date him? Because you pretend like you hate him, but I think you love him.’ But the zinging of the president and his administration — especially Vice President Mike Pence and White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders — was certainly nastier and more partisan than is usually expected these events. And about damned time.” (05/02/18)

29) There isn’t a binary choice for trade with the US or EU
Source: Adam Smith Institute
by Tim Worstall

“The mistake being made is to assume that in order to export to the US — or Monaco, the EU or Mars — then our internal regulation must conform to that of the US, Monaco, the EU or Mars. This is simply not so. Our internal regulation of whatever we want can be whatever it is that we want. Those making things to export — again, to the US, Monaco, the EU or Mars — must make sure that their production accords with regulation in those intended destinations. There just isn’t a binary choice here. Our evidence, our proof of this contention, is that this is what we all do anyway.” (05/02/18)

30) Propaganda networks

“Why does American journalist Abby Martin do propaganda for socialist murderers? You’ve heard about Russian propaganda. Martin once worked for RT, Russia’s state-run news network. Now she’s got a similar gig at teleSUR, an anti-capitalist, pro-socialist news network funded by Latin American leftists. I’d never heard of teleSUR before researching this week’s YouTube video. But teleSUR matters because its videos get millions of views. Latin America stays poor because people believe socialist propaganda. One teleSUR video lists countries where ‘capitalism failed’: Canada, Mexico, England, Peru, Panama, Switzerland, the United States … Another says that ‘Trump is killing our brains with Nazi-era chemicals.’ Few viewers know that teleSUR is funded by the tyrants who control Cuba and Venezuela.” (05/02/18)

32) The dishonest of nuclear deal opponents
Source: The American Conservative
by Daniel Larison

“The ‘debate’ over the nuclear deal over the last several years has a tedious, repetitive quality to it, so forgive me if I keep repeating myself. Opponents of the deal make false and misleading assertions about the deal all the time, but this never seems to be held against them and indeed they are rewarded for repeating them ad nauseam. One of their favorite claims is that the deal ‘paves the way’ for an Iranian bomb. They need to pretend that their intense opposition to a successful nonproliferation agreement is not the result of their fanaticism and desire for conflict, and so they invent a fantasy version of the agreement that ‘permits’ Iran to develop a nuclear weapon at some point in the future. That isn’t true, but if a false claim is repeated often enough it spreads and takes hold no matter how many times it is refuted.” (05/02/18)

33) Why is everything so hideous?

by Josephine Livingstone

“This week Fast Company promised news of ‘calm interfaces,’ about a researcher at MIT who has created ‘programmable droplets for interaction.’ It turns out this is a way to choreograph drops of liquid on a grid, with the potential to change the way people communicate with one another. The droplets are awfully nice, but I think most people clicking on that link were hoping for something else. Still, the story made me suddenly aware of a terrible need. The mere suggestion of a ‘calm interface’ points out, by contrast, the busyness of our dominant interfaces: their horrid colorways, their recursive, maddening, rectangle-within-rectangle structure. In the bait-and-switch of a misleading headline, I woke up to the fact that I was spending most of my waking hours inside something ugly.” (05/02/18)

34) Hayek’s Commodity Reserve Currency
Source: American Institute for Economic Research
by James L Caton, PhD

“In 1943, disillusioned by the failure of an international gold standard managed by poorly coordinated central banks, F.A. Hayek wrote ‘A Commodity Reserve Currency,’ in which he detailed the functioning of a commodity-backed reserve currency whose operation would be subject to rules. … Hayek’s proposal argued that monetary authorities should designate a basket of commodities as reserves. The authorities would target the price of the basket, such that when the basket is below the target price, the monetary authority increases its holdings of commodities in the basket through purchases enabled by expanding the money stock. When the price of the basket is above the target, the monetary authority sells its holdings of the basket of commodities.” (05/02/18)

38) Did John Bolton leak intelligence to sabotage a Trump-Kim deal?
Source: Antiwar.com
by Gareth Porter

“The still-unscheduled Donald Trump-Kim Jong Un summit offers the opportunity for a denuclearization deal that would avoid a possible nuclear war, but that potential deal remains vulnerable to a hostile corporate media sector and political elites in the United States. At the center of this hostility is national security adviser John Bolton, who’s not just uninterested in selling a denuclearization deal to the public. He’s working actively to undermine it. Strong circumstantial evidence indicates that he leaked intelligence to a Washington think tank sympathetic to his views in order to generate media questioning about the president’s announced plan to reach an agreement with North Korea’s leader.” (05/02/18)

39) The Republican advantage that’s easy to see but nobody notices
Source: Independent Institute
by Randall Holcombe

“In close elections, any slight advantage might be responsible for determining the outcome, and it might be that the red party has a slight advantage over the blue party … because it’s the red party. An article reporting on studies by two psychologists suggests that color influences behavior and that red is a winning color. In one study from the 2004 Olympics, where competitors in combat sports like boxing and taekwondo were randomly assigned either red or blue kits, they found that those assigned the red kits were more likely to win than those assigned the blue. One of the researchers said, ‘Simply wearing red doesn’t turn you into an excellent competitor, but it helps tip the balance between winning and losing when people are fairly evenly matched.’ Might referring to one party as the red party and the other as the blue have the same effect in politics?” (05/02/18)

40) DACA should be overturned; a new lawsuit might succeed in doing that
Source: Fox News Forum
by Hans A von Spakovsky

“A lawsuit filed Tuesday by Texas and six other states may finally result in the long-overdue termination of the DACA program, which was created without legal authority by President Obama in 2012 to allow children brought into the U.S. illegally to temporarily remain here under certain conditions. The lawsuit does not address the question of whether allowing the roughly 700,000 illegal immigrants protected from deportation under DACA is a good policy or a bad one. Instead, the suit contends correctly that President Obama exceeded his authority under law and under the Constitution to create DACA without the approval of Congress and without taking other required steps. Whatever the outcome of the suit, the ruling seems certain to be appealed and wind up in the U.S. Supreme Court. DACA stands for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. President Trump announced in September that he wanted to phase out the program beginning in March, but federal judges blocked him from doing so after lawsuits were filed to keep DACA in place.” (05/02/18)

42) Inflation or employment

by Colin Lloyd

“Given the official policy response to the Great Financial Recession — a mixture of central bank balance sheet expansion, lower for longer interest rates and a general lack of fiscal rectitude on the part of developed nation governments — I believe there are two factors which are key for stock markets over the next few years, inflation and employment. The fact that these also happen to be the two mandated targets of the Federal Reserve — full employment and price stability — is more than coincidental. My struggle is in attempting to decide whether demand-pull inflation can survive the impact of a rapid rise in unemployment come the next recession.” (05/02/18)

44) New bipartisan bill could give any president the power to imprison US citizens in military detention forever
Source: The Intercept
by Jon Schwarz

“One of the most outrageous acts of Barack Obama’s presidency was his failure to veto the National Defense Authorization Act for fiscal year 2012. The fiscal year 2012 NDAA included provisions that appeared to both codify and expand a power the executive branch had previously claimed to possess — namely, the power to hold individuals, including U.S. citizens, in military detention indefinitely …. the NDAA did provide some weak restraints on the executive branch’s ability to use this power. In theory, the NDAA’s provisions only apply to someone involved with the 9/11 attacks or who ‘substantially supported al-Qaeda, the Taliban, or associated forces.’ But now, incredibly enough, a bipartisan group of six lawmakers, led by Sens. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., and Tim Kaine, D-Va., is proposing a new AUMF that would greatly expand who the president can place in indefinite military detention, all in the name of restricting presidential power. If the Corker-Kaine bill becomes law as currently written, any president, including Donald Trump, could plausibly claim extraordinarily broad power to order the military to imprison any U.S. citizen, captured in America or not, and hold them without charges essentially forever.” (05/01/18)

46) The problem with Trump dictating his own medical assessment
Source: The Atlantic
by James Hamblin

“There is no formal demand for empiricism in the evaluation of a president or presidential candidate. I’ve argued previously that there should be. A committee of appointed and accountable physicians could administer a battery of tests and use a transparent evaluation process to ensure that a candidate was able to execute the duties of office, and that the American people were at least aware of any potential issues, so that could be factored into voting, or removing a person from office. Without such a process, we are left with the opaque assessment of individual doctors.” [editor’s note: The Constitution clearly defines the qualifications to run for or serve as president. “Passed a medical exam battery dictated by James Hamblin” is not among them. It is, and should be, up to the voters to decide whether or not a candidate has been sufficiently forthcoming (and truthful) regarding his or her health – TLK] (05/01/18)

“To the naysayers who claim that the Second Amendment has nothing to do with personal defense, here is some context: We wouldn’t have the United States of America to live in without private citizens defending themselves and their right to bear arms. Far from being an off-the-cuff one-liner in the Bill of Rights, all twenty-seven words of the Second Amendment were given careful thought. Then, the complete sentence earned its spot among the most fundamental rights protected by the Bill of Rights. Why might this be? The answer to this is not found in the Constitution, but in England’s 1689 Declaration of Rights.” (05/01/18)

48) Michelle Wolf and the rise of right-wing snowflakes
Source: spiked
by Andrew Doyle

“There’s a good reason why the comedic ‘roast’ has been a tradition since Stephen Colbert’s performance at the correspondents’ dinner in 2006, in which he played a caricature of a conservative pundit in order to satirise George W Bush’s administration. This isn’t merely some exercise in bullying for the purpose of cheap laughs, it is a means to deflate the pretensions of the most powerful members of society. That Bush was present at the event made the comedy all the more potent. To take a ‘roasting’ in good grace is strategically wise for politicians. It has an instantly humanising effect, reminding voters that they are willing not to take themselves too seriously. So it is peculiar that so much of the criticism levelled at Wolf has been due to the fact that press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was sitting only a few feet away during the routine.” (05/01/18)

“The effects of the Buck v. Bell decision were widespread, with dozens of states either adding sterilization statutes or updating pre-existing ones. Furthermore, the man whose model for sterilization, or at least a very close copy, was implemented in Virginia, Harry Laughlin, was publicly lauded by the Third Reich. He was even awarded an honorary doctorate by the University of Heidelberg for his work in ‘racial hygiene.’ But of course, this portion of American history has been largely swept under the rug, thanks in no small part to the whitewashed curriculum of state schools. It is quite a large part at that, as the history of state-enforced sterilization is intertwined with the history of the United States.” (05/02/18)

It is also time to stop wasting community money on politically motivated research and theories which try to forecast future climate with mis-directed carbon-centric computer models. But what about ‘Global Warming’ and ‘Extreme Weather’ the boogie-men used to frighten children into worship of the Green Gods? It is also time to cease the vain belief that politicians can change Earth’s climate with laws, taxes, subsidies, international jamborees, windmills, solar panels, electric cars or batteries.
