Trump-bashing Puerto Rican mayor
reportedly facing FBI corruption probe

Fox News, by Barnini Chakraborty

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 6/18/2018 1:56:29 PM

The mayor of Puerto Rico who shot to international fame after criticizing President Trump for not doing enough to help Hurricane Maria victims is being investigated by the FBI on corruption charges, according to multiple news outlets. San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz and her administration are under fire for allegedly obstructing critical supplies from reaching victims of the category-4 hurricane that leveled much of the tiny U.S. territory nearly nine months ago. The FBI reportedly launched the investigation following a February lawsuit filed by Yadira Molina, the former director of procurement. Molina claims she was retaliated

Comments:
The Trump-bashing mayor was more interested in spouting rhetoric than getting anything done.

Been there twice, and it´s not very nice despite being in the Caribbean, having great location, weather, and the link with the U.S.

What´s even more astounding is the blown opportunity they have to remake the entire island into a magnet for businesses, particularly high-tech, by installing fiber optic cables, and other infrastructure to attract businesses that would transform the country into go-to destination not just beholden to tourism, or the pharmaceutical industry.

Given recent events, this made me chuckle: An FBI spokesperson said the agency does not comment on ongoing investigations.

Terrible what this media hog and liberal demagogue will do at the expense of her own people.

Capital Gazette calls for action on
gun laws: ´This madness must stop´
The Hill [Washington DC], by Justin Wise    Original Article
Posted By: NorthernDog- 7/6/2018 11:51:16     Post Reply
The Capital Gazette newspaper on Friday called for Maryland lawmakers to take action on gun laws in an editorial piece, arguing that "this madness must stop." "Our society has to be capable of surveying the long and growing list of victims of mass shootings and come to grips with a pretty straightforward idea: A mounting death toll is not a price we’re willing to pay for putting the Second Amendment above all other freedoms," the staff wrote. The statements come after a gunman opened fire last week in the newspaper´s Annapolis, Md., newsroom, killing five people. Police identified the suspect in

Amazon warehouse workers need

“Six minutes tops” for a bathroom break at an Amazon warehouse is hardly the “dark satanic mills” described in William Blake’s immortal description of the early Industrial Revolution. Still, one would hope humanity had made more progress over the past 200 years, so that nature’s call wouldn’t present such anxiety to any employee in an advanced nation. (Snip) To be fair, Amazon says it doesn’t monitor toilet breaks and the facilities are “just a short walk” from where employees work. Still, this isn’t the first time the Seattle-based giant has faced criticism for pushing workers to the limit in its

A group that has been surveying thousands of African Americans is expanding the project, hoping to reach 200,000 people in a push for greater political representation for black communities. The group responsible for the project, Black Futures Lab, started reaching out to black Americans in February. So far, they have collected 7,600 responses to the survey, called the Black Census Project. As they reach more people, they will give the data to elected officials with the goal of better tailoring policies to interests in African American communities. “I think oftentimes when people think of who is black in America, they think

President Trump held a rally in Montana Thursday night as part of his effort to oust Sen. Jon Tester, one of his most bitter political opponents -- but the president took time to rail against several other big-name critics. Speaking at the Four Seasons Arena in Great Falls, Trump said "it´s time to retire" Tester, a red-state Democrat. He added that Democrats "actually got their ass kicked" in 2016, drawing racuous applause as he proceeded to unload on such varied targets as The New York Times, Rep. Maxine Waters and Sen. Elizabeth Warren. "Pocahontas, to you I apologize," Trump said.

A former Thai Navy SEAL who joined the rescue operation died on his way out from the cave complex where 12 boys and their soccer coach are trapped. Thai authorities say the death was caused by a lack of oxygen inside the cave overnight. Local media are reporting the man is retired Navy Petty Officer 1st Class Saman Kunam who volunteered for the operation after having left his post. The rescuer lost consciousness after placing oxygen tanks in the cave and could not be revived despite first-aid attempts. Authorities say the cave system is losing oxygen as they continue to try and

2010 was the biggest year of my life. I was an active duty captain in the Army, fresh off my third combat rotation to Iraq or Afghanistan since 2004. The Army sent me to graduate school, where I would study positive psychology and leadership at the University of Michigan for two years. My wife and I welcomed our first child, Eli, on Easter morning. I launched my first non-profit organization (Team Red, White & Blue).

LOS ANGELES — The Justice Department says Stormy Daniels´ lawyer, Michael Avenatti, made "misrepresentations" in a bankruptcy case involving his former law firm that owes more than $440,000 in unpaid federal taxes. Avenatti´s former firm, Eagan Avenatti LLP, had agreed in January to pay about $2.4 million in back taxes and penalties as part of a resolution of a bankruptcy case involving the firm. (Snip) Lawyers for the government said they had attempted for months to contact Avenatti and his lawyer to settle the debt but were ignored. They allege Avenatti and his former firm "deliberately made no attempts to

An Indianapolis, Ind., church made a bold statement about Trump´s "zero tolerance" policy by placing statues of Mary, Joseph and Jesus inside a cage representing "ICE detention." Christ Church Cathedral erected the controversial display on its front lawn in protest of the Trump administration´s policy of separating immigrant families illegally crossing the U.S.-Mexico border. The diorama also includes a sign reading, "#EveryFamilyIsHoly," and its Spanish translation, "#CadaFamiliaEsSagrada." Stephen Carlsen, the Dean of Christ Church Cathedral, told WXIN that the display is meant to illustrate the church´s deep concern with the way the United States treats asylum seekers. "We heard a

The Episcopal Church formed a committee Wednesday to “provide a pathway” toward revising the Book of Common Prayer to include gender-neutral language. Church leaders called for immediate revisions to correct the “overwhelming use of masculine language” throughout the book, arguing that the language is now a hindrance to spiritual inclusion, according to the Episcopal Church website. (Snip) Kathleen Moore, a seminarian from the Diocese of Vermont, said she tries to help the youth see that gendered language gets in the way of faith in God. “Let’s let God be God,” Moore told the religious news agency.

That´s right: Hillary Clinton is running for president again in 2020. She has actually ramped up her campaign since her defeat in 2016! From her Twitter feed to university speeches to appearances abroad – from Ireland to Australia to India – the "I´m with her" campaign continues. (snip) The Clintons, because of their money, fixers, connections, and long held positions of power, are still widely feared in the Democratic Party. Few, if any, Democrats will risk criticizing Hillary Clinton, knowing they may appear in Trump campaign ads. Such contrariness is hazardous to a Democrat´s career and quite possibly to his

At least three suspected rhino poachers have been killed by a pride of lions after they broke into a game reserve in South Africa. Rangers discovered human remains around 4:30 p.m. local time on July 3 in the immediate vicinity of the lions’ territory at the Sibuya Game Reserve in Kenton-on-Sea in the Eastern Cape, more than 24 hours after an anti-poaching dog alerted her handler that something was amiss. The ranger however did not examine the disturbance further because it was not unusual to hear the lions at night. When members of the anti-poaching unit investigated, they recovered human

Rep. Jim Jordan appeared on Fox News for an interview with Bret Baier, who grilled him on the allegations that he ignored sexual abuse when he was a wrestling coach at Ohio State. Jordan, a Republican member of the House Freedom Caucus who coached wrestling at Ohio State from 1986 to 1994, denied any knowledge of alleged abuse by the team’s doctor, Richard Strauss, who died in 2005. Baier played a video of Mike DiSabato — one wrestler who has appeared on CNN repeatedly to accuse Jordan of knowing about the abuse — claiming talk of the abuse was frequent

An activist author ignited a social media firestorm on Thursday after saying she was left “very confused” seeing a black man with a pro-NRA and Tea Party bumper-sticker on his car. Kimberley Johnson, a feminist contributor to HuffPost and the spokeswoman for the national advocacy group We Are Woman, was slammed for questioning why a black person would not embrace progressive politics. “Out on the road the other day I saw an affluent black man driving a BMW with two bumper-stickers. One was pro-NRA and the other one was a Tea Party sticker that read, ‘Don´t tread on me,’” she

The extent to which Roe v. Wade has come to dominate American politics can be found in the anguished cries that followed the announcement of Justice Anthony M. Kennedy’s retirement from the Supreme Court. There are other issues that people care about, but Roe forms the centerpiece of any discussion about what a post-Kennedy court might look like. I am myself uneasily pro-choice. Moreover, just a few days ago, I argued that the increasingly bitter judicial wars tearing apart today’s politics can only be ended with more judicial deference to legislatures and to precedent. It stands to reason that I would

Maxine Waters has never been the mildest and most judicious of politicians, but there is a method to her current (extreme) madness. She does have something to be afraid of. Identity politics -- her bread and butter -- is, for the first time in years, in some trouble. This is particularly true in the black community, where Donald Trump´s approval level is climbing. And the reason for this isn´t all Kanye West. African Americans have the lowest unemployment rate ever under Trump and are beginning to have more cash and better lives. This is not good for Maxine and she knows it.

Last Friday Bill Clinton and James Patterson took the book tour for their co-written thriller, “The President is Missing,” to the Daily Show. Host Trevor Noah spent most of the interview talking about the book, but eventually asked Clinton about an awkward previous stop on the book tour when Clinton erupted over a question about Monica Lewinsky.(Snip)Clearly, Clinton has been coached since then. When Trevor Noah recalled that previous interview, Clinton immediately admitted it was not his “best hour.” A bit later he struck an apologetic tone and then immediately stepped on it by once again claiming the facts were
