Brexit legislation ‘paused’ after MPs reject Boris Johnson’s timetable – as it happened | Politics – Politics Article

Can I say in response how welcome it is, even joyful that for the first time in this long saga, this house has actually accepted its responsibilities together, come together, and embraced a deal? I congratulate honourable members across the house on the scale of our collective achievement because, just a few weeks ago, hardly anybody believed that we could reopen the withdrawal agreement, let alone abolish the backstop. That is indeed what they were saying. And certainly nobody thought…

DACA’s day in court | Power Line – Politics Article

The Supreme Court heard oral argument today in the case challenging President Trump’s decision to shut down the DACA program, established by President Obama, that allows undocumented young adults who came to the United States as children to apply for protection from deportation. Obama had said that, because he is not a king, he lacked the power to institute this kind of program. Frustrated, though, by Congress’s inactivity, Obama eventually played the part of king and established DACA. The Trump…

The UK General Election. Just As Mad As Brexit And Possibly Just As Pointless – AN SIONNACH FIONN – Politics Article

The frenetic pace of the general election campaign in the United Kingdom is such that in the last few days I’ve twice written and discarded posts that were made redundant before I had even got to the last line. Hardly a morning or an afternoon or an evening passes by without some new or improbable twist as the contest for power in Westminster reflects the missteps and confusions that have characterised much of UK national politics since the referendum on…

[Report] Anti-Gun Activist Taylor Swift Performs For China While Hong Kong Freedom Fighters Are Gunned Down in the Streets – Politics Article

Remember when singer Taylor Swift didn’t spew out a bunch of political garbage? It seems like just yesterday that she was only about singing and entertaining her fans – but that’s all gone now. Swift came out as a staunch progressive and took a very hard-line anti-gun stance.“No one should have to go to school in fear of gun violence, Or to a nightclub. Or to a concert. Or to a movie theater. Or to their place of worship,” she…

There but for the Grace of God and Superman – Gary Has Issues – Politics Article

I’m finding myself deeply affected by the passing of Christopher Dennis, the Hollywood Superman. His story is a reflection of something we are missing. That is not a judgment of the man, himself, but of the malaise of apathy that is part of society. Maybe it has always been a societal norm to look the other way, or to numb ourselves to harsher realities, but in this day and age, with myriad networks of communication, it seems odd to be…

What Will Republicans Do After Trump Is No Longer President? – Politics Article

When I was young, Ronald Reagan was President in America. His legacy grew quite big. We Danes all remember how Danish politician (and former Minister of Justice) Søren Pind and many others have spoken quite highly of him, even though his critics – obviously – considered him to be quite tough. It is well-known that many things change over time. We all remember the past with nostalgic longing – at least in some areas… 🙂 As I have written numerous…

General election: Boris Johnson launches Conservative election campaign – as it happened | Politics – Politics Article

11.34pm GMT23:34 Closing summary That’s all from us this evening. Thanks for reading and commenting. Here’s a summary of the day’s events: The prime minister launched the Conservative party’s election campaign, saying he did not want the vote, but felt he had had not choice but to call it. Boris Johnson, whose trustworthiness has been questioned by some who have worked with him, gave a speech in Birmingham that was riddled with misleading and outright false claims. Johnson had earlier…

Labour cyber-attack: what it means and how it happened – Politics Article

Labour has been hit by two co-ordinated cyber-attacks from users reportedly based in Brazil and Russia. The party has said no data breach occurred, meaning that no personal information was taken by the attackers. The type of cyber-attack Labour experienced is called a DDoS – a distributed denial-of-service. This kind of attack is designed to stop a website from working by flooding it with a lot of requests from different areas. The aim is usually not to steal data. The…

Meet Amy Whinehouse | Power Line – Politics Article

I have observed Amy Klobuchar up close for a long time. The first time I saw her in court the court reporter asked her to spell her name for him. The judge asked his court reporter in open court, “Good God, man, don’t you read the newspaper?” Klobuchar’s rise in Minnesota politics is attributable in good part to her father’s prominence as a sports reporter and daily columnist for the Minneapolis Tribune. By the time she jumped into electoral politics…

Dem Rep Lacy Clay Has Funneled Over $1 Million Dollars to His Sisters Law Firm (That Has No Address or Website) – Politics Article

William Lacy Clay Jr. is a Democrat rep out of Missouri…and he’s in some hot water. It turns out the law firm that is run by his sister has now banked more than $1 million from the lawmaker’s campaign since 2002. The payments that are sent to the firm are among the largest payouts from the campaign according to filing documents. In some very clever “fraud coverup” moves, the campaign cash was sent to an address in Maryland and supposedly…

Rise up – Andra Day – Politics Article

Director: M. Night Shyamalan I don’t usually post these types of things… But as a Veteran and a Veterans Service Officer, it bears remembering: My main job is to assist Veterans with their disability paperwork, as well as family members with benefits coming after their Veteran has passed. Many who come through my door are messed up. A percentage of them are dying from various diseases. I haven’t been doing this for long. But I noticed that my lack of…

Proxy Corruption and Globalism | Comments On National AmnesiaComments On National Amnesia – Politics Article

By William McCullough Proxy corruption, in this case focuses on China, using surrogates, including politicians and the media, to mask their real intention of bringing down our capitalist society for their own profit and power. Author Peter Schweizer who exposed the Clinton’s institutionalized corruption in his book ‘Clinton Cash,’ has written a new tome titled ‘Secret Empires,’ which details proxy corruption as a result of globalization. With 2020 just around the corner, those voters with the ability to employ critical…

Shooting Schoolkids and mis-using the Second Amendment – Politics Article

The wording of the famous Second Amendment to the US Constitution is this: “A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed”. My students and I saw it just a few days ago, the faded writing on the Bill of Rights displayed in the National Archives still visible. I was puzzled for a while, as in the document this is actually the…

Transitioning ThinkProgress – ThinkProgress – Politics Article

Many years ago, we embarked on a new experiment: moving ThinkProgress from an organizational blog to a progressive news site, powered by reporters and editorially independent. We are proud that ThinkProgress helped shape the conversation in this country—exposing the companies that were supporting the NRA, uncovering sexual abuse within religious organizations, documenting voter suppression, and tracking the financing of white nationalism, to name just a few of the many, many, many important stories ThinkProgress covered. Unfortunately, as with so many…
