B-CR-TEO
Sen. Dianne Feinstein at 84
is not planning to retire

Associated Press, by Michael R. Blood

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 6/17/2017 8:01:34 PM

Los Angeles - The nation´s oldest U.S. senator looks like she´s sticking around. California´s Dianne Feinstein turns 84 on Thursday and is displaying signs that she´s headed for a re-election campaign, not a retirement party. While the Democrat has been coy when asked about seeking a fifth full term next year, her political committee, unambiguously titled Feinstein for Senate 2018, raised more than $650,000 in the first three months of this year in a cue she is looking ahead. Feinstein plays a marquee role for Democrats on Capitol Hill, where she has queried Attorney General Jeff Sessions and former FBI Director James Comey

Comments:
If you´re not serious enough to make "term limits" an issue when supporting a candidate to bring to Congress for a bill, this is what we continue to get. I daresay, like PIAPS, Feinstein passed her due date twenty years ago. Think also, she has so "power" to waste Billions of our tax dollars annually in the cesspool that is Kalifornia politics.

With individuals such as Feinstein, Schumer, Franken, Durbin, Blumenthal, etc., I believe it´s past time to abolish our totally incompetent and unrepresentative Senate. The system is broken. And repeal the 17th. Amendment.

Ok, we will be real lucky if we ever see a law for congress critters limiting their self-life.

But lets demand something we can do now. Make these congress critter clock in and clock out every day. Field trips quire receipts and justification for trips.

Lets start holding their feet to the fire. Make them accountable for everything they do.

Something simple, and the records would all be public documents. No more of this clandestine BS.

I am so sick of the Rats and the GOPe. We The People need a way to fire these idiots.

Its way past time a pen and a phone should be used to hold congress accountable to the People.

Term limits are most definitely needed, not necessarily based on age, but on years in office. We have too many fossils on both sides of the aisle who have no business being in DC.

I would bet there are a minimum 50 members of the Senate who have been there so long that they damage this country every day. Feinstein is one of them. Without the Milk shootings in SFO, we would never have been subject to her disgusting socialism. Most of them are wheeled out in a gurney. What is this, the House of Lords?

Of course she is remaining! Remember, as the head of a certain Senate Committee, she funneled BILLIONS of dollars to herself and her husband. When someone finally protested, she was not removed from the committee, just demoted from heading the committee. She and the other Creepozoid Senators are still at it. Her husband received a no-bid congressional contract on some of those Post Offices.

She is one of the great accidents of history.
If my memory serves me, she was a member of city council, and council president, in SF when a crazy police officer shot and killed a homosexual council member, Harvey Milk, as well as the mayor of SF, whose name I can´t recall.
The mayor´s death advanced Feinstein to mayor, and later to a seat in the House.
She and Barbara Boxer hit Washington in time to hate on Clarence Thomas - both ladies marched on the senate to protest the awarding of a white man´s position to Clarence Thomas, and both were elected to the U.S. Senate at the same time!
Boxer has retired, and a nasty woman replaced her. Californians never learn.

Parole denied for ex-Charles
Manson follower Patricia Krenwinkel
Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 6/23/2017 11:46:48     Post Reply
Sacramento, CA - Officials denied parole Thursday for convicted killer Patricia Krenwinkel - a follower of cult leader Charles Manson - after considering whether battered women´s syndrome affected her state of mind at the time of the notorious murders nearly five decades ago in California. Krenwinkel, 69, was previously denied parole 13 times for the slayings of pregnant actress Sharon Tate and four other people. The next night, she helped kill grocer Leno LaBianca and his wife Rosemary in what prosecutors say was an attempt by Manson to ignite a race war. The decision on parole came six months after commissioners postponed

A Catholic bishop has instructed priests in his central Illinois diocese to deny communion, last rites and funeral rites to people in same-sex marriages – unless they repent. In the decree he sent to priests, deacons, seminarians and staff in his Springfield diocese last week, Bishop Thomas Paprocki sets forth a set of norms on same-sex marriage and related pastoral issues that he says are the policy of the diocese. Paprocki´s decree bans priests and parish staff from performing same-sex marriages or allowing same-sex weddings or receptions at any Catholic facilities. People in same-sex marriages "should not present themselves for Holy

(Snip) Documents that Spiegel has been able to review show that the BND, until a few years ago, actually had considerable interest in the United States as a target of espionage.

As Title IX celebrates its 45th anniversary, one impact of the law is clear: Millions more girls now grow up playing sports, a reality that seemed impossible in the early 20th century. But the law encompasses much more than providing equal athletic opportunities for girls and women. Title IX touches every aspect of the educational system in ways that are not always apparent to the law’s target population: students. Title IX essentially bans discrimination on the basis of sex within federally funded schools, including universities. The law states that “no person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in,

Washington - Secretary of State Rex Tillerson plans to remove Iraq and Myanmar from a U.S. list of the world´s worst offenders in the use of child soldiers, U.S. officials said, a step that could prompt accusations the Trump administration is prioritizing security and diplomatic interests ahead of human rights.

Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said on Friday that a future war waged by Israel against Syria or Lebanon could draw thousands of fighters from countries including Iran and Iraq. His comments indicated that the same array of Iranian-backed Shi´ite militias - but not countries - currently fighting in Syria in support of President Bashar al-Assad could take part in any future conflict with Israel. Tensions have risen between Hezbollah and its longtime foe Israel in recent months since Donald Trump became U.S. president with his tough talk against Iran.

Sydney, Australia - The Australian government said on Friday that it would send spy planes to help the Philippine armed forces who are fighting to recapture the southern city of Marawi, where the military is battling militants for control. Extremists from the Abu Sayyaf and Maute groups seized part of the city last month, beginning a wave of violence and displacing tens of thousands of residents. Philippine officials, citing intelligence information, said Friday that two militants believed to have backed a siege of the city have been killed in the fighting.

Washington - In the early days of the Trump administration, national security officials began exploring ways to free Austin Tice, an American journalist and a former Marine officer believed to be held by the Syrian government. His case has frustrated investigators and diplomats since he disappeared while on assignment nearly five years ago. White House officials decided, because of the sensitivity of the situation, to set up a back channel. Given the deteriorated relations between the United States and Syria, options were limited. So in early February, Mike Pompeo, the C.I.A. director, spoke on the phone with Ali Mamlouk,

A U.S. jury on Friday ordered Syngenta AG to pay $217.7 million to more than 7,000 Kansas farmers over its decision to commercialize a genetically modified strain of corn before China approved importing it. The verdict by a federal jury in Kansas City, Kansas, was announced by lawyers for the farmers, who blamed the Swiss company for causing catastrophic damage to them after Chinese officials began refusing U.S. corn shipments in 2013. Their case was the first to go to trial. Thousands of other corn producers and traders also are seeking damages over China´s non-approval of the agrochemical giant's corn seeds for importation.

Jon Ossoff was on a trajectory to defeat Karen Handel narrowly, poised to deliver a humiliating blow to the White House in a race billed as a referendum of Donald Trump’s early months in office. Then the Republican voters in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District unexpectedly showed up in droves. Pollsters say sky-high turnout drove Handel, the GOP nominee, to a nearly 4-point victory on Tuesday, despite most pre-election surveys showing Ossoff with a small-but-shrinking lead. Mathematically, a 4-point loss for a Democratic House candidate in a district that has traditionally elected Republicans by wide margins is an encouraging result for

They join Kansas, Mississippi, North Carolina and Tennessee as states already subjected to the ban.

(Facebook) - Former President Barack Obama took to Facebook to ask Republicans to reconsider their efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, also known as ObamaCare. "I recognize that repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act has become a core tenet of the Republican Party," Obama wrote. "Still, I hope that our senators, many of whom I know well, step back and measure what’s really at stake, and consider that the rationale for action, on health care or any other issue, must be something more than simply undoing something that Democrats did." He argued that the Republican health care bill

Most illegal immigrants who pay taxes have stolen someone else’s legal identity, and the IRS doesn’t do a very good job of letting those American citizens and legal immigrants know they’re being impersonated, the tax agency’s inspector general said in a new report released Thursday. The theft creates major problems for the American citizens and legal foreign workers whose identities are stolen, and who have to deal with explaining money they never earned. But the IRS only manages to identify half of the potentially 1.4 million people likely affected by the fraud in 2015, the Treasury Inspector General for Tax

The deadly collision between a U.S. destroyer and a container ship June 17 took place while the freighter was on autopilot, according to Navy officials. The Philippines-flagged cargo ship ACX Crystal was under control of a computerized navigation system that was steering and guiding the container vessel, according to officials familiar with preliminary results of an ongoing Navy investigation. Investigators so far found no evidence the collision was deliberate. Nevertheless, an accident during computerized navigation raises the possibility the container ship´s computer system could have been hacked and the ship deliberately steered into the USS Fitzgerald, an Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer.

President Donald Trump has said he will pursue legislation that would bar immigrants from being eligible for welfare for at least five years. At a rally in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, last night he said ´the time has come´ for ´new immigration rules´ that would require those seeking admission to the country to be able to support themselves financially and would bar the use of welfare for a period of at least five years. He said his administration would be ´putting in legislation to that effect very shortly.´ It is unclear, however, how Trump´s proposal would change the current situation.

"With all of the recently reported electronic surveillance, intercepts, unmasking and illegal leaking of information, I have no idea … whether there are ‘tapes´ or recordings of my conversations with James Comey, but I did not make, and do not have, any such recordings," Trump said in a two separate tweets Thursday. The president´s announcement caps weeks of speculation as to whether the president had kept recordings of his discussions with Comey, who he fired last month. Trump himself
