>WASHINGTON — President Obama on Tuesday largely commuted the remaining prison sentence of Chelsea Manning, the army intelligence analyst convicted of an enormous 2010 leak that revealed American military and diplomatic activities across the world, disrupted the administration, and made WikiLeaks, the recipient of those disclosures, famous.

>The decision by Mr. Obama rescued Ms. Manning, who twice tried to commit suicide last year, from an uncertain future as a transgender woman incarcerated at the male military prison at Fort Leavenworth, Kan. She has been jailed for nearly seven years, and her 35-year sentence was by far the longest punishment ever imposed in the United States for a leak conviction.

>Now, under the terms of Mr. Obama’s commutation announced by the White House on Tuesday, Ms. Manning is set to be freed on May 17 of this year, rather than in 2045.

>The commutation also relieved the Department of Defense of the difficult responsibility of her incarceration as she pushes for treatment for her gender dysphoria — including sex reassignment surgery — that the military has no experience providing.

>In recent days, the White House had signaled that Mr. Obama was seriously considering granting Ms. Manning’s commutation application, in contrast to a pardon application submitted on behalf of the other large-scale leaker of the era, Edward J. Snowden, the former intelligence contractor who disclosed archives of top secret surveillance files and is living as a fugitive in Russia.

you're referring to that tweet wikileaks made about Assange being willing to concede to (illegal) US extradition.
doubt he'd do it, it's just a tweet.
but if Assange is brave enough to make good on that than i'm actually not too worried about him, he's not the kind of guy who would concede to that bullshit on bravery alone... whatever it was in those files that wikileaks didn't release that the US military/gov want back so fucking bad that they hop outside the law regularly in regards to Manning and Assange... it will still be in the power of wikileaks to release it no matter what happens to Assange so he has leverage.
If he goes anywhere near the US he's going to get suicided by two shotgun blasts to the back of the head. He probably cost Killary the election, no chance she'd let him live if he wandered into her reach.

>ELLENTON, Fla. – After 146 years, the curtain is coming down on "The Greatest Show on Earth." The owner of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus told The Associated Press that the show will close forever in May.

>The iconic American spectacle was felled by a variety of factors, company executives say. Declining attendance combined with high operating costs, along with changing public tastes and prolonged battles with animal rights groups all contributed to its demise.

>"There isn't any one thing," said Kenneth Feld, chairman and CEO of Feld Entertainment. "This has been a very difficult decision for me and for the entire family."

>The company broke the news to circus employees Saturday night after shows in Orlando and Miami.

>By midcentury, the circus was routine, wholesome family entertainment. But as the 20th century went on, kids became less and less enthralled. Movies, television, video games and the internet captured young minds. The circus didn't have savvy product merchandising tie-ins or Saturday morning cartoons to shore up its image.

>"The competitor in many ways is time," said Feld, adding that transporting the show by rail and other circus quirks — such as providing a traveling school for performers' children— are throwbacks to another era. "It's a different model that we can't see how it works in today's world to justify and maintain an affordable ticket price. So you've got all these things working against it."

>The Feld family bought the Ringling circus in 1967. The show was just under 3 hours then. Today, the show is 2 hours and 7 minutes, with the longest segment — a tiger act — clocking in at 12 minutes. "Try getting a 3- or 4-year-old today to sit for 12 minutes," he said.

This is really sad tbh
I saw the show a couple of times when I was a kid, and it amazed me since there wasn't anywhere else I could see that stuff. It's different to be able to see the stunts and animals in living color, as opposed to just watching some youtube video
The idea of local circuses and carnivals is such an antiquated idea that I was always happy that at least this one circus kept the tradition going, but now it's gone and a bunch of talented people are out of a livelihood. It feels like the end of an era and it saddens me to see people celebrating this
End of an era, but it's an opportunity for others. What better time to start a circus of your own?
On jewtube of course.

Kids capacity of feeling astonished dissapears with time. Curiously, I have the feeling that live performances will be a thing of the future once society gets bored with internet.

Think how many times you're watching porn and the camera isn't zoomed in to where you want it to be, well now it is.

>A former Texas middle-school teacher who was impregnated by a 13-year-old student has been sentenced to 10 years in prison.

>Alexandria Vera, 25, was facing up to 30 years behind bars after pleading guilty to aggravated sexual assault of a child in November. She admitted to police that a relationship that started with Instagram messages between her and the boy blossomed into a romance — one that the boy’s family approved of.

>A judge in the 209th District Court in Houston said during Vera’s sentencing hearing on Friday that he does not believe the former English teacher is a danger to children or a classic pedophile, the Houston Chronicle reported. But Judge Michael McSpadden said he wants to send a message to the community by giving Vera some prison time.

>“We want our educators to teach our students,” McSpadden said, according to the Houston Chronicle. “We want them to keep their hands off students.”

>Vera, an eighth-grade teacher at Stovall Middle School in Houston, was arrested in June and initially charged with continuous sexual assault of a child, which carries a maximum of life imprisonment. Her sentence was capped at 30 years after she pleaded guilty.

>Vera told police that she met the boy during summer school in 2015. She said she initially resisted the boy’s advances until sometime last fall, when she agreed to hang out with her student.

>Prosecutors say Vera and the teen had sex almost every day for nine months. She told investigators that they love each other, according to court documents. During the relationship, Vera told her neighbors that the boy was her brother, according to KHOU, a CBS affiliate.

you can be guaranteed she'll get work despite being an SO and Anita Sarkesian will sing her praises, while a male teacher would end up getting lashed to a tree and hacked to death.

If she shed a couple of 10 pounds from having a kid, she could become a stripper and use her situation as her schtick and dress as the naughty teacher. I, for one, would pay top dollar to see those twins of hers, if you know what I mean. (wink wink, nudge nudge)
Noone in general would hire a sex offender even for cleaning chewing gum off the sidewalker even if said SO had changed their ways and rehabilitated or even if they were just on the list for streaking at a ball game or being caught urinating in a park while drunk.
Your SO registry needs some serious reform for only the ones who actually raped someone of fucked a minor are put on it

>The wife of Omar Mateen, who killed 49 people at an Orlando nightclub in June, has been arrested by the FBI.

>Noor Salman was arrested in Rodeo, California, where she has been living, according to reports, and is due to appear in federal court in San Francisco on January 17.

>She is charged with obstructing the investigation of the mass shooting and aiding and abetting by providing material support, the New York Times reports.

>Mateen, the perpetrator of the deadliest mass shooting in US history, was killed inside the club after a standoff of several hours. While on the phone with the police, he pledged allegiance to the Daesh terrorist group and called his attack revenge for US airstrikes. Salman, who married Mateen in 2011, was questioned at length after the attack.

>In a November interview with the New York Times, Salman said that Mateen had been violent toward her during their marriage, and that she was "unaware" of anything connected with the attack. The Tampa Bay Times reports that she filed a petition in California court last month to change the name of her son by Mateen. Officials told CNN that Salman's claims that she was coerced into silence through Mateen's abuse didn't stand up to scrutiny, and that there is evidence she was complicit and knew her husband was going to commit a crime.

>"I am glad to see that Omar Mateen's wife has been charged with aiding her husband in the commission of the brutal attack on the Pulse nightclub," Orlando police Chief John Mina told CNN. "Federal authorities have been working tirelessly on this case for more than seven months, and we are grateful that they have seen to it that some measure of justice will be served in this act of terror that has affected our community so deeply." In addition to the 49 killed, 53 people were injured in Mateen's attack on the popular gay nightclub, Pulse.

The point is that she knew about it before it happened, but didn't tell anyone. That's the aiding and abetting. Not testifying isn't obstruction, but choosing to speak and then lying to the investigators and saying she didn't know anything when she did is obstruction.

Liberalism is a direct attempt to control us through the government. Criminals, especially gangs, will always have guns, yet liberals want us and our families to be defenseless. They don't understand how the brain works and blame the problem on guns, quite possibly because they don't have a brain themselves. They support Common Core, which holds back the more intelligent children in the school system. Paradoxical liberalism at it's finest. They feel so threatened by outsiders that they have been known to shut down conservative talk radio stations. Now ask yourself, do you really want to further enable a government full of brainless liberal control freaks the ability to further "coexist" in this country, or do you want to go back to the foundation and principles this country was once founded upon?
>Liberalism is a direct attempt to control us through the government.
Liberals signed the constitution. I don't think you fully understand what a liberal is and are going by the breitbart definition. In antiquity liberals were closer to modern libertarians. Today the laissez faire attitudes of 18tth century liberalism have become more about progressive permissiveness and equality.
>Criminals, especially gangs, will always have guns, yet liberals want us and our families to be defenseless. They don't understand how the brain works and blame the problem on guns, quite possibly because they don't have a brain
The NRA is a corporate lobby, Anon, not a hobbyist organization. Criminals would love to shoot you with your own gun while you sleep. What's that? It's in a safe? Well what good is it then?
>They support Common Core, which holds back the more intelligent children in the school system.
You support charter schools where corporate profit is the only goal and not educating children.
>They feel so threatened by outsiders that they have been known to shut down conservative talk radio stations.
Conservative feel so threatened by saying "Happy Holidays" that they insist there is a war on Christmas and christians when every small town has at least one church and every big city has churches every few blocks.
>Now ask yourself, do you really want to further enable a government full of brainless liberal control freaks the ability to further "coexist" in this country, or do you want to go back to the foundation and principles this country was once founded upon?
I think you're a poor judge of the foundation and principles the country was founded on and anyway the constitution is a living document meant to be changed by successive generation. Thus why we have amendments. Furthermore, "the government" is city, county, state, and federal. You don't even know which to blame. Also, half the stuff you're mad at should be blamed on corporations and not the government.

>Japan was caught killing a whale deep inside Antarctic waters declared by Australia to be a protected whale sanctuary.

>Sea Shepherd activists tracked the Japanese whaling fleet on Sunday, capturing the first images of Japan hunting whales in the Southern Ocean since Tokyo defied an international court ruling that declared the hunt to be illegal.

>But the activists have since suffered a setback in their hope to disrupt the whale slaughter when heavy fog set in overnight and they lost track of the main abattoir ship, Nisshin Maru. The hunt was several hundred miles from Casey Station in Antarctica.

>One of the Japanese harpoon ships sought to delay the Sea Shepherd vessel Steve Irwin, allowing the slower Nisshin Maru to escape radar range.

>The activists had tracked the whaling fleet after a five-week search but will not disclose the location of its second and faster ship, the $12 million Ocean Warrior, for what it called tactical reasons.

>Outrage erupted across the political spectrum on Monday after the activists made public the images of a harpooned minke whale about to be butchered.

>The whale was apparently killed inside a marine sanctuary dating back to 1999, when it was first declared by the Howard government. The same waters are also subject to an international ban on commercial whaling.

It really is illegal to have the whale meat supposedly collected under the guise of 'scientific research' end up in Tokyo fish markets. But granted, "illegal" on the international scale doesn't mean very much. Neither the toothless IWC or the UN is going to pass economic sanctions on Japan for this.
Obviously, the loop hole should have been fixed by now and there is evidently some form of corruption stopping law makers from changing the laws.
Wow sea shepherd, you had one job!
Japan is the most over rated shit on the Earth
Someone explain to me why the Japs are so fixated over killing whales that doesn't involve "tradition" or "scientific purposes" because we know both of those don't mean shit.
