Harvey suspends himself while he investigates himself.


Does Harvey really think we're stupid?

Meanwhile Harvey is suing the New York Times for reporting the truth.


Meanwhile the left just well.. nothing.

Most successful women sucked a dick to get to where they are.

The only people he screwed over were shareholders in his company who expected him to hire on merit. They are the real victims here and I'm tired of women pretending to be victims and trying to get all the attention when they are sluts who are just as guilty. In fact I'd go as far as saying they owe some sort of compensation since they would not be celebrities with millions of dollars had they not participated in this fraud.

Archaeologists in Germany have discovered a 9.7 million-year-old set of fossilised teeth they say could trigger the “rewriting" of human history.

The dental remains were found by scientists sifting through gravel and sand in a former bed of the Rhine river near the town of Eppelsheim.

They resemble those belonging to “Lucy”, a 3.2 million-year-old skeleton of a human ancestor found in Ethiopia.

However, they do not resemble those of any other species found in Europe or Asia, raising questions about the “out-of-Africa” theory of human origins.

Scientists were so confused by the find they held off from publishing their research for the past year, Die Welt reports.

Herbert Lutz, director at the Mainz Natural History Museum and head of the research team, told local media: "They are clearly ape teeth. Their characteristics resemble African finds that are four to five million years younger than the fossils excavated in Eppelsheim.

“This is a tremendous stroke of luck, but also a great mystery."

At a press conference announcing the discovery, the mayor of Mainz suggested the find could force scientists to reassess the history of early humans.

The actual peer-reviewed article puts it in Hominoidea though.

Now I've known professors and grad students to start controversies just to get people arguing and get free back and forth papers for years instead of doing their homework and just putting out one with good science but they did a pretty good job with this one. The site has similar teeth finds going back to the early 1900's though most in the original collection were destroyed in WWII. They had copies of other teeth in private collections to help them and earlier German work.

This particular thing seems to be a result of the people finally having some teeth of their own in their collection and a full comparative study done with all surviving private and historical resources for the area. Seems to be something they were working toward for some time as well, since they had papers about just the historical Miocine ape samples back in the early 2010's.
>With the first paper on the research having just been published, the “real work” to unlock the mystery is only just beginning, Dr Lutz said.

Sums it up really. It's always the way with anything newly identified with only small fragments to go by.
Just enough to say you have something new. Not yet enough to really place it properly.

I found the article. Since you were so quick to shut down the discussion, mind explaining why this is wrong?

> raising questions about the “out-of-Africa” theory of human origins.

“Out of Africa” never made sense to begin with and is based on political correctness.

had to be germans that found these. lol

My only question is... why is it enough just to rely on calling the politicians? When did we become so complacent that we do so little to protect our rights?

This is not accusatory (I suffer from it myself), I mean this as a genuine question - a discussion. What is the source of YOUR social fatigue? Is it because you're more aware of all the things wrong and can't focus on just one? Do you simply not care, living up to the Boomers' stereotype of our generation? Or is it something else? Nihilism? Money? Time? Will?

Why is it so hard to band together? To DO something? Why is it so hard to make an actual impact upon the world?

>theres truly no good reason to have a system in which you must work a 40 hour work week to sustain yourself but bureaucracy and an insistence that developments drive developments rather than well being ensure quality of life will stay the same but we are all the more dependent on the system making people wary of any uprising
If only there was a system where the working class controlled all the industry instead of shareholders and bankers, that way nobody would ever have to worry about their jobs sent overseas or replaced by an immigrant, businesses would be discouraged from polluting their own towns since they're run by the people who live there and not some guy on Wall Street, and technology that increases productivity would reduce people's workload instead of causing people to lose their jobs. What a crazy system that would be, I'm guessing the wealthy "elites" would do everything they could to slander and fight against such a thing.
>What else is there? What more can we do?
Perhaps the working class could take control of the businesses where they work... seize the means of production, in other words.
Working class seizing the means of production sounds like a union. Unions have been demonized and workers' rights eroded for 5 decades. And then there are unions that don't actually work to help their members, but are set up to only profit the higher up union leaders.
I desire to live in a country with free information. There is immigration controls in every country, therefore there is a small chance I will be able to move to such a country if my own shills out to Comcast because they would rather not improve their infrastructure but would rather obtain additional revenue streams by strangling the little guy. Freedom isn't free but information should be. No one owns an idea.

Yes humans are greedy and always will be. big whoop. Don't hire union workers. easy thats what I do.
>with technology there is no good reason to work 40 hours
That's why I don't get educated, build something, profit. Being own boss is only way to break out, if you fail then try again or except that someone else will be paying you. And they will want you to work 40 hours, I do. because I love not working and to not work and profit I need to pay for work to be done, that's the system recognize and exploit instead of bitching about it and advocating for communal systems that lead (historically and inevitably) to ruin and misery.
Unions are good because they give the workers greater bargaining power against their employers (though they can sometimes succumb to corruption as you mentioned), but they are still part of the capitalist system where one person owns the business and has other people do the actual work in exchange for a portion of the value they generate. I was referring more to eliminating the employee-employer relationship entirely by simply telling the trust fund kiddies and Wall Street bankers to go fuck themselves and give complete control of the businesses to the workers so they can keep the full value of their labor and don't have to worry about getting screwed for the sake of corporate profits, similar to how co-ops work now, or how it worked in revolutionary Catalonia back during the Spanish Civil War nearly a century ago.

>Before the Obama administration approved a controversial deal in 2010 giving Moscow control of a large swath of American uranium, the FBI had gathered substantial evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials were engaged in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering designed to grow Vladimir Putin’s atomic energy business inside the United States, according to government documents and interviews.

>Federal agents used a confidential U.S. witness working inside the Russian nuclear industry to gather extensive financial records, make secret recordings and intercept emails as early as 2009 that showed Moscow had compromised an American uranium trucking firm with bribes and kickbacks in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, FBI and court documents show.

>They also obtained an eyewitness account — backed by documents — indicating Russian nuclear officials had routed millions of dollars to the U.S. designed to benefit former President Bill Clinton’s charitable foundation during the time Secretary of State Hillary Clinton served on a government body that provided a favorable decision to Moscow, sources told The Hill.

>Rather than bring immediate charges in 2010, however, the Department of Justice (DOJ) continued investigating the matter for nearly four more years, essentially leaving the American public and Congress in the dark about Russian nuclear corruption on U.S. soil during a period when the Obama administration made two major decisions benefiting Putin’s commercial nuclear ambitions.

Whoops. :^)

So because Ms. Clinton said it, that means you're incapable of holding a conversation without insulting people? Or are you implying that I'm somehow responsible for the words that came out of her mouth?

Don't go blaming other people for your own poor behavior, that's what I expect from a child, not a full-grown adult.
Hey, I didn't insult nobody

With the FBI informants NDA being overturned and them being called to testify infront of Congress, an end to the Clinton foundation seems insight. Let's just hope the Clinton's don't manage to car bomb this informant first.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Senate Democrats on Thursday failed to pass a measure to block oil and gas drilling in part of the Arctic National Wildlife Reserve, losing to Republicans who believe production there would provide jobs, wealth and help to offset revenue lost from tax cuts.

An amendment blocking the development failed 48-52, mostly along party lines. A lone Republican, Senator Susan Collins of Maine, supported the measure. The only Democrat to vote against it was Joe Manchin from West Virginia.

Conservationists and many Democrats treasure the Alaskan reserve, also known as ANWR, as one of the planet’s last paradises. Established by Congress in 1980, it is home to tribes and a habitat for sensitive wildlife including caribou, polar bears and hundreds of species of migratory birds.

Republicans, who now control Congress and the White House, have long wanted to open a portion of ANWR called the 1002 area. Senator Lisa Murkowski, the chair of the Senate energy committee and an Alaskan Republican, called the 1002 portion a “non wilderness area” because the government put it aside decades ago for petroleum exploration. The U.S. Geological Survey estimates the area on the Prudhoe Bay in Northern Alaska has up to 12 billion barrels of recoverable crude.

A Senate budget measure introduced this fall instructed Murkowski’s committee to raise $1 billion over 10 years. She hopes some of that money will come from energy company royalties after opening the 1002 area to drilling. Murkowski urged senators to see the “instruction as an opportunity to do something constructive” and focus on boosting energy output from federal lands that have long been off limit.

The failed amendment, sponsored by Senator Maria Cantwell the top Democrat on the Senate Energy Committee, would have eliminated the directive from the budget resolution seeking to raise funds.

Republicans led a “sneak attack” that turned “public lands over to polluters,” Cantwell said. Senator Jeff Merkley, another Democrat, has said there is “something cynical and sad” about the effort to open ANWR because it would boost oil output from the state feeling the fastest effects of climate change, which a majority of scientists link to carbon emissions from the burning of fossil fuels and development.

The battle is not over. The House of Representatives will next have to pass its version of a plan to raise revenues from the drilling. A final budget package would then be worked out by leaders from the two chambers.

Petroleum interests have long lobbied to explore in the area and say technology advances mean the impact of operations in the reserve would be small. Murkowski said oil companies could use infrared cameras to detect and avoid polar bear dens while exploring for oil and gas.

It is uncertain whether energy companies that have faced years of static crude prices amid a wealth of oil in the continental United States would be willing to increase drilling in the harsh and frigid Arctic.

Environmentalists vowed to keep up their fight. “Congress cannot sneak this through the back door when they think nobody is looking,” said Jamie Williams, president of the Wilderness Society. ANWR “is simply too fragile and special to drill, and we have a moral obligation to protect it for future generations of Americans.”
Cool. Historically massive ice shelves are shearing off the antarctic coastline and exposing land ice to forces of erosion they haven’t seen in millenia but let’s stack oil derricks on top of that bitch anyway
Thanks fucking god.

It's nice the adults are back in charge.
Oh no we're all gonna die.
>Muh global warming.

> A lone Republican, Senator Susan Collins of Maine, supported the measure

I wish she would get cancer like Mccain.

Even if this looks good for Trump, I don't feel that it was right that they recorded it, seems like a security thing that typically presidential matters like this are not recorded illegally. Any armybros? Was it okay that it was recorded by the grunts?
I agree. And then this dumb congress bitch makes stupid racism comments. These kind of people who record conversations and then make claims of racism should not be hired for dog catcher let alone congress.

So the only thing the media coverage of this non story does is buy Hilary time to finish her book tour.

Bill Clinton met Putin In Clinton's Home:


Obama’s FBI, headed by Robert Mueller, discovered that “Russian nuclear officials had routed millions of dollars to the U.S. designed to benefit former President Bill Clinton’s charitable foundation during the time Secretary of State Hillary Clinton served on a government body that provided a favorable decision to Moscow” – a deal which would grant the Kremlin control over 20 percent of America’s uranium supply, as detailed by author Peter Schweitzer’s book Clinton Cash and the New York Times in 2015.


Bill Clinton sought permission from Hillary Clinton’s state department in 2010 to meet with a Russian nuclear official, as well as fourteen other Russians. While the former U.S. President didn’t end up meting with any of the people on the list according to former aides to both Clintons, Bill Clinton sat down with Vladimir Putin at his “private homestead” in Russia right after Hillary Clinton’s State department approved the ’20 percent’ deal for Russian State Nuclear Agency, Rosatom, to take majority ownership in Uranium One. Later that day, Clinton collected $500,000 for a speech to a Kremlin-linked investment bank which was promoting Uranium One stock.

President Donald Trump wrote online Tuesday morning that he plans to take unilateral steps to reform the nation’s healthcare system, hinting at signing an executive order without clarifying what that order might be.
“Since Congress can't get its act together on HealthCare, I will be using the power of the pen to give great HealthCare to many people – FAST,” Trump wrote on Twitter Tuesday morning.
The president did not immediately indicate what specific changes he plans to order to the nation’s healthcare system, although he has suggested in recent weeks that an executive order allowing Americans to purchase health insurance across state lines would be forthcoming. Clarity on a timeline for those changes, beyond that they will happen “fast,” was also not immediately offered by the president.

Trump has been vocal about his frustration with Congress’s inability to pass legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare, a campaign promise that the president and his fellow Republicans ran on. A bill to do so narrowly cleared the House last spring, but the GOP effort sputtered and stalled in the Senate, where the Republican majority is much thinner.
In an interview with Forbes published Tuesday morning, Trump reiterated his position that Obamacare is "a total mess" and insisted that while the healthcare law is now his responsibility, blame for its struggles fall entirely at the feet of his predecessor. "Obamacare is Obama's fault. It's never going to be our fault," Trump said.
"What we're doing is trying to keep it afloat, because it's failing," the president said. "I mean the insurance companies are fleeing and have fled. They fled before I got here. But with that being said, no, Obamacare is Obama's fault. It's nobody else's fault."

The executive branch doesn't need congressional approval. Congress owns the coinpurse, that's where their power is. If they don't like something, then they are free to fuck with budgets and federal law.

The only branch the executive should remotely listen to is the judicial, because it's their job to interpret and justify our code of laws, specifically regarding the constitution.

The US government was designed to have checks and balances among 3 branches. Forcing one branch to run everything by one branch would turn an already slow system into an ineffective one.
>One is allowing elected body of Representatives to give their approval
not really?
he made demands and then when they didn't give him what he wanted, steamrolled his things.
The quicker we find ways to kill Obamacare the better.
If we can replace it with single payer, I'm all for it
>All he has to do is stop enforcing the mandate. And 3 seconds later Obamacare is history
Yeah... no. The most populous states run their own ACA-esque healthcare market separate from the Fed. Doing this would empower insurance providers to fuck the poor midwest and not much else. Way to fuck the real America. Meanwhile Tyrone from the hood and Lupita from the barrio collect on affordable health care when they throw a blood clot from all the fried chicken and carnitas without issue

Does that sound like a solution to you?

- The Trump administration has now completed wholesale repeal of the "Mnuchin Rule."
- "When you're cutting taxes across the board, it's very hard not to give tax cuts to the wealthy with tax cuts to the middle class," says Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.
- That represents a dramatic reversal from Mnuchin's initial assertions on the subject.

The Trump administration, bent on deregulation from the start, has now completed wholesale repeal of the "Mnuchin Rule."

It happened in an interview with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin that Politico published Wednesday. Faced with economic analyses showing the White House plan to cut corporate and personal income taxes provides big gains for wealthy Americans, Mnuchin called that result unavoidable.

"The top 20 percent of the people pay 95 percent of the taxes," the Treasury secretary said. "The top 10 percent of the people pay 81 percent of the taxes."

"So when you're cutting taxes across the board, it's very hard not to give tax cuts to the wealthy with tax cuts to the middle class," he concluded. "The math, given how much you are collecting, is just hard to do."

That represents a dramatic reversal from Mnuchin's initial assertions on the subject. After last November's election, he appeared on CNBC to pledge that wealthy Americans would receive no tax cut whatsoever.

"Any reductions we have in upper-income taxes will be offset by less deductions so that there will be no absolute tax cut for the upper class," Mnuchin told CNBC's "SquawkBox" then.

Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
After the administration took office in 2017, Mnuchin began softening that pledge, which had come to be known as the "Mnuchin Rule." When I interviewed him in May at the Peter G. Peterson Foundation's Fiscal Summit, he described avoiding tax cuts for the rich as a goal, not a commitment.

"The president's objective is to create a middle-class tax cut," he told me. "I can't pledge what the results will be, since the results are going to be a combined effort of the administration and the House and the Senate.

"The president's priority has been not cutting taxes for the high end," Mnuchin continued. "His priority is about creating a middle-income tax cut. So we'll see where it comes out."

Where it came out, according to analysts at the Tax Policy Center, was a tax plan that in 2027 would give 80 percent of the benefits to the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans. That figure involved some educated guesswork based on details in earlier GOP proposals, since the White House-Congress "Big Six" plan has not yet filled in many details.

President Donald Trump has insisted the plan he wants Congress to pass by year's end will not benefit rich people like him. "The wealthy are not getting a tax cut under our plan," National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn told ABC recently.

Under the "Mnuchin Rule," that was once the Treasury secretary's promise, too. Yet his new remarks to Politico not only conceded that the rich will get a tax cut, but cast it as mathematically inevitable.

Of course, cutting the payroll taxes that all workers pay to finance Social Security, rather than income taxes, would produce a different mathematical outcome. So would dropping the GOP proposal to eliminate the estate tax — which currently applies only to estates valued at more than $5.5 million for an individual or $11 million for a couple.

But Mnuchin, who like Trump and many top administration officials is very wealthy, cast abolishing estate taxes as a matter of fairness rather than math.
"The estate tax is somewhat of an economic issue, and somewhat of a philosophical issue," he told Politico's Ben White. "People pay taxes once. Why should people have to pay taxes again when they die?"

I was in a car accident when I was 18 and was dead at the scene. It took medics quite awhile to revive me but obviously they succeeded. The near death experience with the light at the end of the tunnel and seeing people from your past and looking down at your own body is a very real experience. I’ve always taken a science based and not a spiritual approach to understanding it but it isn’t something that people have made up. It happened a little over a decade ago but my memory of it feels like it happened this morning.

That's a great spin, but you know it's bullshit
Some bitch MP pointed out on twitter that hate crime has risen 13%. What she neglects to point out is that MP created many new hate crime offences last year, so of course there would be a rise in the number of arrests. More interestingly the conviction rate for hate crimes actually fell by 6%, so it seems that all they've achieved is wasting more police and CPS time and resources on political endeavours and quite possibly oppression, not to mention the cost to the public purse.
