May is either ‘completely useless’ or ‘plots’ to keep UK in EU – UKIP leader to RT

Speaking to RT, Gerard Batten ridiculed the very idea that May was allowed to head the withdrawal process as she has always been a hardline remainer, who nevertheless “does not satisfy” either side. He claims she has negotiated a deal under which the UK doesn’t really leave the EU.

“She is completely useless. Either this is a deliberate plot to actually not take us out of the European Union or she is completely useless. You can’t have it either way, she’s certainly not done a competent job,” Batten told RT.

The politician also accused May of having utter disrespect for UK interests, saying that the situation over Brexit is “unparalleled in British history,” as it is ruled over by a leader “prepared to sell out the country to a foreign power, which is precisely what she’s done.”

Diabetes spike in Mexican town where Coca-Cola used as drinking water, currency & religious offering

Cristobal de las Casas, in the Mexican state of Chiapas, has for years been caught between an inept local government and a multinational corporation which is draining its local water supply in a case of crony capitalism at its worst.

Coca-Cola is produced locally at the Femsa plant, which bottles and sells the drink across Mexico. Under a long-standing agreement with the Mexican government, the factory owns the rights to draw out more than 300,000 gallons (around 1,135,623 liters) of water per day.

Desperate locals average more than two liters of soda per day, as it’s often more accessible than bottled water and is almost as cheap, with a 1.5-liter Coca-Cola bottle costing roughly 18 Mexican pesos ($0.88), compared with water, which costs 10 Mexican pesos ($0.48) per bottle.

The Chiapas state has seen a 30-percent increase in the mortality rate from diabetes between 2013 and 2016.

AUSTIN, Texas – The Texas Board of Education preliminarily voted Tuesday night to restore Hillary Clinton and Helen Keller to the state’s history curriculum and to slightly soften language about the Arab-Israeli conflict – surprising moments of bipartisanship for members who have long waged ideological battles about how students in the nation’s second largest state learn history.

"The Americans have resumed intensive airstrikes against terrorist-controlled settlements along the Eastern bank of Euphrates, including, according to local residents, the use of white phosphorus munitions," Zakharova stated, speaking at a press briefing in Moscow on Thursday, Sputnik reported.

'US to Sail and Fly Wherever International Law Allows': Mike Pence Says Disputed South China Sea Belongs to Nobody
The United States seeks to ward off spreading Chinese influence in Asia's seas by practicing "freedom of navigation" operations - naval and aerial activity in what China believes to be its own territory.

US Vice President Mike Pence has said that the contested South China Sea isn't the domain of any country, challenging Beijing's claims to the resource-rich region.

"The South China Sea doesn't belong to any one nation, and you can be sure: the United States will continue to sail and fly wherever international law allows and our national interests demand," Pence said on Friday.

US Will Defeat EU Army

The testy slap-down by US President Donald Trump to the idea of a European army was telling. Any notion of the Europeans stepping away from American "protection" would be anathema to Washington.

That's because American power is not about "protecting" Europe. That's just the vainglorious, propaganda mythology. In reality, it's all about Washington maintaining a lucrative protection racket in Europe, imperial control over supposed "allies", and militarily targeting Russia as the main objective.

The idea for a European army was floated again last week by French President Emmanuel Macron.>>>

HERE’S EXACTLY HOW MANY VOTES ANDREW GILLUM GAINED AFTER DUST SETTLED IN FLORIDA RECOUNT

Democratic Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum gained on his GOP opponent after the machine recount was completed on Thursday.

But the net change may make him question whether he should have withdrawn his concession.

The final tally of 4,075,445 for DeSantis and 4,041,762 for Gillum represented exactly one additional net vote for the Democratic Tallahassee mayor over the unofficial pre-recount results.

The resulting 0.41 percent margin is well outside the 0.25 percent needed for a manual recount, according to the Sun-Sentinel, yet Gillum so far has refused to concede.

“We never thought we were going to pass an audit, right? Everyone was betting against us that we wouldn’t even do the audit,” Deputy Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan told reporters on Thursday, announcing the end of the eleven-month process.

Man discovers he does NOT have cancer after misdiagnosis led to five years of chemotherapy and biopsies

James Salaz, of Montrose, Colorado, was diagnosed with Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis (LCH) in 2012 after 'abnormalities' were found in his left lung

LCH is a rare form of cancer in which an excess of immature white blood cells cause tumors to form throughout the body

Salaz was on chemotherapy and painkillers for five years, but the 'abnormalities' were not disappearing

After his primary doctor was dismissed in 2017, Salaz found another doctor who told him he never had cancer

Salaz was actually suffering from vasculitis, an inflammation of the blood vessels

The chemotherapy he was on has also given him pancreatitis he will have to live with for the rest of his life

‘Get it right!’ Israeli consulate spars with US journalist over Gaza headlines

An American journalist who pointed out the extensive edits the New York Times made to its article about the Israeli bombing of Gaza found himself in a heated Twitter argument with the Israeli consulate.

A Twitter account “Editing The Gray Lady,” which tracks edits to the Times, revealed on Monday how the US paper of record changed its headlines and copy to describe the events in Gaza.

“Incredible propaganda,” Ben Norton, a New York-based writer for The Real News, commented on the edits, adding that the Times “bent over backward and rewrote its article to erase how Israel initiated the violence in Gaza, obscuring the fact that Gaza's self-defense was ‘retaliatory’ and instead pushing the covert Israeli operation until the end.”

US senators seek to stop weapons sales to Saudi Arabia over Yemen war, Khashoggi murder

A newly proposed bill in the US Senate would suspend the sale of weapons to Saudi Arabia and block refueling of Saudi warplanes bombing Yemen, as punishment for the death of a Washington Post columnist.

A group of senators on the Foreign Relations Committee, led by Bob Menendez (D-New Jersey) and Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) introduced the “Saudi Arabia Accountability and Yemen Act of 2018.” It was sponsored by three Democrats and two Republicans.

Menendez, who is the top Democrat on the committee, said that sanctions against 17 Saudi nationals introduced earlier on Thursday by the Trump administration were “not enough” to ensure a credible investigation of the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, and pressure Riyadh into ending the war in Yemen.

Members of the migrant caravan are currently trying to climb over the U.S.-Mexico border wall, despite CNN’s Jim Acosta’s claim that they would not “be doing that.”

Last week during a testy exchange with President Donald Trump at a post-midterm press conference, Acosta debated the president on whether or not the migrant caravan is an “invasion.” The White House correspondent rejected the notion that members of the caravan would try to climb walls and fences to get into the United States as depicted in a Trump campaign ad.

“Your campaign had an ad showing migrants climbing over walls and so on, but they’re not going to be doing that,” Acosta claimed.

SWEDEN: GREEN PARTY SUGGESTS CONFISCATING CITIZENS’ HOMES TO GIVE THEM TO MIGRANTS

The Green Party in Sweden has suggested confiscating the homes of citizens and giving them to migrants if the property is deemed to be too large or if the owner has more than one residence.

Blogger Katerina Janouch reveals how the party wanted to introduce a new law which would allow “Municipalities to seize housing to give them refugees.”

Under the proposal, authorities would be able to “evacuate people who have too large housing,” for example “couples where the children moved home or cohabited where the partner has a residence elsewhere.”

Under any such legislation, homeowners wouldn’t even be compensated, whereas before the government would have had to pay them at least 125% market value

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Taking a page out of the South Africa's, and Zimbabwe's play-book, are you, Sweden?!?

Should this insane notion get passed, expect massive, public protests to occur with a strength and ferocity that will astonish the current government.

Oh, and it will also be the last time that any Swedish politicians who supported this, will be ever be elected... again.

You're welcome, Sweden!

Judge Rejects Bill Nelson’s Recount Deadline Extension Push Right Before Florida County Misses Deadline

A federal judge rejected a push by Democratic Florida Sen. Bill Nelson to extend the machine recount deadline in a Thursday ruling in which the judge labeled Florida a “laughingstock” because of its election failures.

“We have been the laughingstock of the world, election after election, and we chose not to fix this,” U.S. District Judge Mark Walker said in the ruling, which he handed down on the same afternoon that Florida’s Palm Beach County missed the machine recount deadline at 3 p.m. Thursday.

Walker decided that Florida’s 67 counties will still have to submit machine recount results at 3 p.m. Thursday, reported the Associated Press. However, Walker ruled earlier Thursday morning to grant 4,000 Florida voters an extension until 5 p.m. Saturday to verify their mail-in and provisional ballots if they were rejected for signature mismatches.

Travel chaos as deadly Winter Storm Avery prepares to dump up to six inches of snow on the East Coast from DC to Boston, closing schools and snarling airports with 80 million in its path

Winter Storm Avery has struck New York City, continuing up the East Coast and causing travel chaos and school closures after killing at least five.

More than 80 million people braced for the Arctic blast on Thursday as winter storm alerts were issued from St Louis through the Appalachian Mountains to New York and New England.

Nearly half a million people across the Midwest, mid-Atlantic and Northeast were left without power after the storm struck last night.

The storm was forecast to dump as much as six inches on parts of New England, while in the Midwest the St Louis area saw the highest accumulation with up to eight inches of snow on Thursday morning.

The storm has already wreaked havoc on roads in the South, where icy roads led to fatal crashes in Mississippi and Arkansas on Wednesday night.

Atheist United Church minister keeps her job; 'heresy trial' called off

A United Church minister who had faced an unprecedented ecclesiastical court hearing over her professed atheism is no longer in danger of a defrocking after the two sides reached an agreement in the long-running case.

In an unexpected development this week, Rev. Gretta Vosper and the church settled ahead of what some had dubbed a "heresy trial," leaving her free to minister to her east-end Toronto congregation.

"It's going to be wonderful," Vosper said in an interview Friday. "We'll be out from underneath that heavy cloud. Now we'll be able to really fly."

The settlement, the terms of which are confidential, came during what was supposed to be a week of routine preliminary motions ahead of the full hearing later in the month.

Florida man pleads not guilty in political pipe bombs case

The Florida man accused of sending pipe bombs to prominent critics of President Donald Trump pleaded not guilty Thursday to charges carrying a potential penalty of life in prison.

Cesar Sayoc entered the plea through his lawyers during his appearance in Manhattan federal court.

U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff set a July 15, 2019, trial date.

The judge suggested earlier dates, but Sayoc's attorneys said they needed more time to prepare given the amount of discovery in the case and a lack of staffing at the federal public defenders' office of New York.

"This is a slightly more complex case than the average one," federal defender Sarah Baumgartel told Rakoff.

Israeli Coalition on Brink of Collapse as Hawks Rage Over Gaza Ceasefire

In Israeli politics, wars against the Palestinians tend to be winning issues, especially for far-right governments. That’s why Monday’s flare-up in Gaza thrilled hawks in the current coalition. Peace, however, is another matter. Peace threatens to collapse the coalition government outright.

Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman, an outspoken opponent of the ceasefire in Gaza, quit on Wednesday morning. Education Minister Naftali Bennett could be close behind, as he’s demanding the defense portfolio job, or he’ll pull his party out as well.

Though Netanyahu desperately wants to avoid early elections, it’s not clear how he’s going to be able to. Indications are that he wants to keep the defense ministry for himself, and even then giving it to Bennett, who reportedly laid out a plan for conquering Gaza during the security cabinet, is probably not a real option.

Multiple departments battle 300-ton haystack fire at Bundy Ranch in Bunkerville

Multiple agencies and water tankers responded to a massive haystack fire reported Wednesday in Bunkerville, Nevada, when hundreds of tons of burning hay kept firefighters busy for more than five hours.

Early Wednesday evening firefighters were dispatched to what was initially called in as haystack and structure fire at the Bundy Ranch on Riverside Road and Gold Butte, Bunkerville Fire Chief Mike Wilson said.

Fire crews found the large haystack engulfed in flames, while the residence located nearby had no signs of smoke or flames.

“Our main goal at that point was to keep the fire from spreading to the home that was in close proximity to the fire, as well as several other structures on the property,” Wilson said.

Judge postpones decision in CNN lawsuit over Jim Acosta's press pass

Lawyers for CNN and the Trump administration are awaiting an initial ruling on the network's federal lawsuit over press access to the White House.

And they're going to have to wait a little while longer.

Judge Timothy J. Kelly heard nearly two hours of oral arguments about CNN's request for a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction on Wednesday. Then he said court would reconvene Thursday at 3 p.m.

But on Thursday afternoon, he rescheduled the next hearing for Friday at 10 a.m.

If Kelly grants CNN's requests on Friday, CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta would get his press pass back for a short period of time. If it's denied, Acosta's pass will remain suspended.

We don’t really hear all that much about Melania Trump in the media except occasional digs at her immigration status and a few daring photos.

Her grace, her reserve, her remarkable calm at the epicenter of a tumultuous White House, and, strikingly, her sense of style (and I don’t just mean her clothes) puts her on a different plane from the Washington circus that surrounds her.

Clapper’s Credibility Collapses

Former National Intelligence Director James Clapper’s key role in helping the Cheney/Bush administration “justify” war on Iraq with fraudulent intelligence was exposed on Tuesday at the Carnegie Endowment in Washington by his own words quoted back to him from his memoir “Facts and Fears: Hard Truths From a Life in Intelligence.” Hard truths, indeed.

Clapper was appointed Director of National Intelligence by President Barack Obama in June 2010, almost certainly at the prompting of Obama’s intelligence confidant and Clapper friend John Brennan, later director of the CIA. Despite Clapper’s performance on Iraq, he was confirmed unanimously by the Senate. Obama even allowed Clapper to keep his job for three and a half more years after he admitted that he had lied under oath to that same Senate about the extent of eavesdropping on Americans by the National Security Agency (NSA). He is now a security analyst for CNN.

The order from U.S. District Court judge Mark Walker came hours before a 3 p.m. deadline for counties to report the results of a machine recount for the U.S. Senate, governor and agriculture commissioner contests, throwing more uncertainty over a process that faces a spate of legal challenges.

PG&E Cash Sweep Sends Distress Sign to California Lawmakers

PG&E Corp.’s decision to shore up cash is a clear signal to California legislators that it may need help to stave off the fiscal threat posed by wildfires.

The state enacted a law earlier this year to help utilities cover costs of last year’s wildfires, including by selling bonds backed by customer bills. But the measure didn’t specifically address how to handle the costs of any fires in 2018. So PG&E may need to turn to lawmakers for another fix.

“We think Sacramento will likely step in to protect the utility and its customers,” Citigroup Inc. analyst Praful Mehta wrote in a research note Wednesday. PG&E, owner of California’s largest utility, has lost more than $12 billion in market value, about half, since the deadliest wildfire in state history broke out Nov. 8.
