McCain scolds Trump for missing Russian sanctions deadline

Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Ben Cardin (D-Md.) slammed the Trump administration on Wednesday for missing a key deadline in implementing sanctions against Russia.
“The delay calls into question the Trump administration’s commitment to the sanctions bill which was signed into law more than two months ago, following months of public debate and negotiations in Congress. They’ve had plenty of time to get their act together," the pair said in a joint statement on Wednesday.

By Oct. 1, the McCain and Cardin-penned sanctions bill required the administration clarify which targets would be identified and punished as part of Russia's defense and intelligence sectors. The administration has not yet done so.
The bill had been intended to force President Trump into punishing Russia for its tampering in the 2016 presidential election, with legislators fearing that the president would be overly lenient.
McCain and Cardin sent a letter to Trump reminding him of the deadline on Sept. 29.

Also on September 29, Trump issued a memorandum delegating most of the responsibilities of making the decisions outlined in the bill to members of the Cabinet. Trump passed the authority to determine who counted as military or intelligence to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.
According to their Wednesday statement, the duo believes the administration has been slow to implement at least one other step in the Russian response.
“[T]here does not appear to be a significant diplomatic effort to engage our allies in Europe and lead an effort to increase pressure on Moscow. Congressional intent was clear, reflected in the overwhelming bipartisan majority in favor of the legislation," they said.

What about the current scandal that heavily implicates that Obama and Clinton were involved in Russian bribery/extortion?

Can we pass sanctions now? Fucking seriously, the Russians are begging to get their shit kicked in. It doesn't even matter if it was Democrats or Republicans giving Putin the reach-around, what matters is the fact that he was given a reach-around.

Can we drop the left vs right schtick and objectively look at this situation? I'm sick of this constant in-fighting when there are actual foreign powers attempting to subvert us.

>bill to punish Russia for tampering in the 2016 elections
Punishing Russia for unstantiated claims? Sounds more like war mongering to me. Trump wants peace, he believes the US can beat Russia through industry instead of through force. It's about time these warbirds be given the amount of attention they deserve.

I'm a panel member of the Gallup Panel so I answer their surveys about once a month, and this is a new thing they asked me to do that seems /news/worthy

>On behalf of the Gallup Panel, we thank you for being a Panel member. It is important that your opinions be heard.

>Gallup is conducting an important study about perceptions of news media trustworthiness, and we need your help! Gallup has created a media aggregation website called NewsLens, where you will find a variety of current articles from different news outlets. For the next few weeks, we will send you occasional reminders to ask you to explore the website and rate the trustworthiness of news articles. We will be updating the content every day — you may visit NewsLens here to get your daily dose of news and rate articles as often as you’d like. If you have already visited our website, thank you!

>NewsLens, created and hosted by Gallup, requires a secure login to view the site. As with all other research that Gallup invites you to participate in, your responses are confidential and Gallup will never release or share your personal information.

Cedar Creek and Belle Grove National Historical Park was evacuated Saturday due to the discovery of a suspicious item on the site during the battlefield’s anniversary weekend.
The Virginia State Police Bomb Squad rendered the device safe, but according to the release, K9 units continued to search the battlefield.
The Cedar Creek Battlefield Foundation announced earlier this week that it had received a letter threatening bodily harm to attendants of the re-enactment. As a result, security was increased.

Personally, I think it was ANTIFA or BLM. Nobody else hates history this much to want to try to kill people.

>Although all they fire are blanks on the field, the rifles themselves are very real and steel bayonets are intimidating as fuck

Is this what obese middle aged cosplayers with bad knees sit around and tell themselves at night after the reenactment?
>>
>>189148
I'm none of those things, and yeah. Although we only load the powder during the events, the weapons are all capable of live fire, and the bayonets you get from Regimental Quartermaster are just as deadly as the real thing.
(We use rubber ones in melees, but steel ones are practically ubiquitous, and don't get me started on all the scary shit the rebels carry, arkansas toothpicks, big D-guard bowie knives, belt knives, tomahawks.)

Anyway, ANTIFA seems to think I'm right. They threatened to muck up the Gettysburg event this past summer, and the reaction from all the participants, the national park service, and a bunch of hicks with ARs must have made them back down, because none of them even showed up.

There are already groups that do WW2 and Vietnam. Tons, in fact.
I saw one at the Capital Air Show in Sacramento that has a working Huey they use. There are WW2 units that have working panzers, halftracks, jeeps, shermans and stuarts, and everything in between. In the UK they have spitfires. In some ranch in Texas, you can pay $950 to set up and shoot the last fully functional PaK 40 left in the world.

The Kremlin created an inauthentic Facebook group called United Muslims of America, which was used to reach American Muslims and their allies, according to a new report.

The Russian government promoted memes, which are funny photos or jokes with an often-repeated formula, including some that asserted Hillary Clinton confessed the U.S. "created, funded and armed" al Qaeda and the Islamic State, called Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., the true founder of ISIS, and claimed that Osama bin Laden was a "CIA agent," according to the Daily Beast.

The account purchased Facebook ads and promoted political rallies to Muslim audiences. Additionally, it used a Twitter account called "muslims_in_usa" and an Instagram account called "muslim_voice" to promote the memes posted by the Facebook group.

Both the Twitter and the Instagram accounts have been suspended.

Unlike many of the inauthentic accounts connected to the Kremlin, the United Muslims of America group was impersonating an actual organization which is based out of California. The current president said the group is currently "not functional" and is currently rebuilding.

The Russian trolls also used other accounts to promote anti-Islamic messages to far-right audiences on Facebook, including promoting a rally in Idaho in August 2016 that demanded, "We must stop taking Muslim refugees!"

It was revealed Tuesday that descriptions for ads bought by a Russian "troll farm" and shared on Facebook were politically charged and intended to sow political discord during the 2016 presidential election. However, they were not necessarily intended to favor one candidate or issue.

"Russia knows no ends and no limits to which groups they would masquerade as to carry out their objectives," Rep. Eric Swalwell, a Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, told the Daily Beast.

The brutal 2008 Postville, Iowa, immigration raid that resulted in the arrests of nearly 400 immigrant workers remains one of the largest—and cruelest—raids in U.S. history. Women locked themselves in restrooms to hide while others ran into nearby cornfields to escape federal immigration agents. Families were broken and torn apart as frantic parents called friends to beg them to watch over their children. “They rounded us up toward the middle like a bunch of chickens,” recalled one worker, among the many transported to Waterloo for processing at a converted fairground.

There, hundreds of these undocumented immigrant workers were convicted to months in federal prison in a subsequent “judicial assembly line” that immigrant rights leader Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) called “a cattle auction, not a criminal prosecution in the United States of America.” It was a “cattle auction” overseen by chief judge of the Northern District of Iowa Linda R. Reade who, according to an investigation from Mother Jones, was sentencing immigrants as her husband was purchasing stock in private prison companies:

>Yet amid the national attention, one fact didn’t make the news: Before and after the raid, Reade’s husband owned stock in two private prison companies, and he bought additional prison stock five days before the raid, according to Reade’s financial disclosure forms. Ethics experts say these investments were inappropriate and may have violated the Code of Conduct for United States Judges.

Colorado resident Michael Kent recently sat down at a tattoo parlor in Colorado Springs to have his swastikas covered up.

Kent, a former neo-Nazi, credits an African-American parole officer named Tiffany Whittier with helping him to see beyond skin color and changing his views about white supremacy.

“If it wasn’t for her I would have seeped back into it,” said Kent. “I look at her as family.”

Whittier, 45, even inspired Kent, 38, to take down the Nazi flags he had hanging in his living room and replace them with smiley faces.

“I’m not here to judge him. That’s not my job to judge. My job is to be that positive person in someone’s life,” Whittier said.

Added Kent, “When you wake up and see a smiley face, you’re going to go to work and you’re going to smile.”

Kent now works full-time on a chicken farm in Colorado, where all his co-workers are Hispanic.

“Before all this, I wouldn’t work for anybody or with anybody that wasn’t white,” said Kent. “[Now] we have company parties, or they have quinceañeras, I’m the only white guy there!”

really though. Hate is a poor motivator. It was hope not hate that won it for trump. The hope of a 'return to greatness', classic imagery of a place that never existed against an enemy that that poses no threat. Used by populists the world since time immemorial. Same thing that brought us the crusades...make Christendom great again.....and the Ottoman Empire....make Constanitople great again. and hitler...make Germany great again....hate is minor in these frameworks

Some people there liked ISIS...why? open borders, the return to the world stage, nonsense worldview, uncertainty in the face of modernisation. Vice News did a great behind the lines of ISIS series.

That being said, don't be surprised if Iraq's Sunni PM appropriate many of this issues for his own. How? by tying themselves to the Turks and Iranians. By showing dominance of minority ethnic groups (the Other!)

The Kurds want freedom, autonomy and McDonalds. I hope Donald bets on the Kurds.

With the deadly flames of the Tubbs Fire bearing down on his property, Roland Tembo Hendel knew it was time to round up his family, dogs and cats flee.

But there simply was no room for the family’s flock of goats.

“By 11:10 we could see the first of the flames across the valley,” he wrote on his Facebook page. “By 11:15 they were growing larger and the winds went mad. We had loaded up the dogs and cats, but Odin, our stubborn and fearless Great Pyrenees would not leave the goats.”

Odin — living up to the Norse god he is named after — would not abandon the flock.

So the family reluctantly and with heavy hearts, watched Odin was they were departing, hoping they would see him again but knowing it was likely he would not survive.

“Even under the best of circumstances it is nearly impossible to separate Odin from the goats after nightfall when he takes over the close watch from his sister Tessa,” Hendel wrote. “I made a decision to leave him, and I doubt I could have made him come with us if I tried.”

The escape proved harrowing as the fire erupted along Mark West Springs Road. The journey through the flames would prove deadly for one of Hendel’s neighbors — Lynne Powell — but his family finally reached safety.

“Cars behind us on Mark West Springs Road were pouring flames out of the windows as they roared down the road,” he wrote on Facebook. “Later that morning when we had outrun the fires I cried, sure that I had sentenced Odie to death, along with our precious family of bottle-raised goats.”
