Former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe loses bid to stop him from being indicted for 'lack of candor' during probe into Hillary Clinton email investigation

A U.S. attorney for Washington D.C. has recommended going forward with criminal charges against former FBI Acting Director Andrew McCabe, following a scathing Inspector General's report on his conduct during the Clinton email probe.

U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu recommended moving ahead with charges, prompting a failed appeal by McCabe's lawyers to appeal the decision, Fox News reported.

McCabe's team appealed the matter to the deputy attorney general at the main Justice Department, without success. 'The Department rejected your appeal of the United States Attorney's Office's decision in this matter. Any further inquiries should be directed to the United States Attorney's Office,' according to an email Justice provided in response.

Like Most Government Central-Planning Schemes, Zoning Laws Raise the Cost of Living

By Chris Calton

In the classic video game Sim City, players acting as the mayor of a simulated city begin by allocating space by industrial, residential, and commercial zones. There is no option in the game to have overlapping districts, where a department store might sit next to a middle-class home. The very idea would seem absurd to modern minds, which typically accept city zoning as an intuitive and unquestionable element of city governance. But prior to the twentieth century, zoning did not exist in the United States...

Your experience may not be as out of the ordinary as the official numbers indicate...

To illustrate the kind of human diversity behind the sterile statistics, consider the following employment situations. These individuals may not “count” in the column our intuition would predict...

All Hell Broke Loose When William Barr Announced This Big Change

Donald Trump finally thought he had an Attorney General he could count on.

Now all hell is breaking loose after William Barr announced this big change.

Donald Trump was furious when the Justice Department surrendered in the face of Chief Justice John Roberts’ betrayal over the Trump administration including a question about citizenship in the 2020 census.

Roberts decision left open an avenue for the Trump administration to achieve victory, but the career lawyers in the Justice Department waved the white flag of surrender.

FBI Given Evidence Of Clinton-Linked Libya Scheme; Instead Launched Trump-Russia Quagmire

Recently made public FBI records reveal that the agency virtually ignored evidence from private GOP-backed sources about a scheme in which Hillary Clinton associates tried to exploit her position as Secretary of State in order to profit from the 2011 turmoil in Libya she helped to create, according to RealClearInvestigations.

The documents, provided to the FBI in June 2016 as the agency was kicking its Trump-Russia investigation into high gear, allege that Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal sent her "a series of detailed memos and reports about Libya," which were intended as a "quid pro quo" which might help a post-Gaddafi Libya recover as much as $66 billion in offshore funds hidden by the slain strongman.

Victory! California Senate Votes Against Face Surveillance on Police Body Cams

By Haley Tsukayama

The California Senate listened to the many voices expressing concern about the use of face surveillance on cameras worn or carried by police officers, and has passed an important bill that will, for three years, prohibit police from turning a tool intended to foster police accountability into one that furthers mass surveillance.

A.B. 1215, authored by Assemblymember Phil Ting, prohibits the use of face recognition, or other forms of biometric technology, on a camera worn or carried by a police officer in California for three years. The Assembly passed an earlier version of the bill with a 45-17 vote on May 9. Today’s vote of the Senate was 22-15. We are pleased that the Senate has listened to the growing number of voices who oppose the way government agencies use face surveillance...

Did California Just Kill the Gig Economy?

By Brittany Hunter

California may have just passed a death sentence on the gig economy.

Late Tuesday night, as many California residents slept in their beds, the state legislature passed a bill that is expected to impact hundreds of thousands of independent contractors across the state.

For months now, the state assembly has been debating controversial legislation seeking to redefine how companies classify independent contractors. Directed at the gig economy, which is comprised of mainly contractors, Assembly Bill 5 (AB5) proposed changing the status of workers within the state from freelancers to actual employees—completely changing the model of the burgeoning sector...

The Official 9/11 Explanation is The Greatest “Coincidence Theory” Ever

By Madhava Setty, MD

On September 11, 2001 I was completing my last year of training as an Anesthesiologist at the University of Pennsylvania. That morning I, like many of us, sat transfixed for hours watching the continuous television coverage of the events that were unfolding in New York and Washington D.C. I was scheduled to work the night shift. When I arrived at the hospital most of the doctors and nurses who had worked during the day were still at their posts. The hospital had instituted an emergency plan of operation, expecting a possible mass casualty situation if and when hospitals in the New York City area became overwhelmed...

The Bolsheviks Are Coming! (Part I)

Suppose you are an American. And suppose you spent the last 60 years laying in quiet repose in a freezer chest after expertly injecting yourself with enough glycerine to keep ice crystals from disrupting your cellular membranes. Lord only knows why the heck you did that, but that’s all past tense now. Anyhow, now it’s 2019 and for some other unfathomable reason your great-grandchildren dig you out of the freezer chest, defrost you, zap you a few times with a cattle prod to get your heart pumping, walk you around for a bit while feeding you strong black coffee and here you are again, good as new and ready for action.

The Trillion-Dollar Military Still Isn’t Enough for the War Party

By Ryan McMaken

Since the end of the Cold War in 1990, US defense spending has increased 182 percent in nominal terms, and 44 percent in inflation-adjusted terms. In inflation-adjusted terms, defense spending is now about equal with the all-time peak reached in 2011, and the White House’s Office of Management and Budget estimates that defense spending will reach an all-time high in 2020...

EXCELLENT OP-ED in the Vancouver Sun was scrubbed from the internet in less than 24 hours.
