President Trump will not immediately agree to release a Democratic memo rebutting GOP claims that the FBI abused its surveillance authority as it probed Russian meddling in the 2016 election, but he has directed the Justice Department to work with lawmakers so some form of the document could be made public, the White House counsel said Friday night.

In a letter to the House Intelligence Committee, White House counsel Donald McGahn wrote that the Justice Department had identified portions of the Democrats’ memo that it believed “would create especially significant concerns for the national security and law enforcement interests” if disclosed. McGahn included in his note a letter from Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher A. Wray supporting that claim.

The decision stands in contrast to one Trump made last week on a Republican memo alleging the FBI misled the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court in order to obtain a warrant to surveil a former Trump campaign adviser, Carter Page. After the House Intelligence Committee voted on a Monday to make that document public, Trump authorized its release swiftly on a Friday afternoon.

The process had been largely the same for the Democratic rebuttal. The committee voted on Monday to release the document, and it was sent to Trump’s desk for approval. But this time, the president waited until the evening, informing Capitol Hill of his decision via his White House counsel around 7:30 p.m.

The committee had earlier voted along party lines against releasing both the Democratic and Republican memos at the same time.

Hillary Clinton actually violated the gross negligence clause of the Espionage Act when she put above top secret information, programs which the Inspector General of the intelligence community had to be read into just to investigate, on a private server to which administrators without security clearances had unfettered access. Comey fabricated an intent requirement for gross negligence and falsely claimed that the statute had only been used once [1]. Meanwhile uncorroborated hearsay paid for by Hillary Clinton's campaign was used to obtain a warrant against an associate of her political rival, as covered in the memos here. The evidence of conspiracy against said political rival remains hearsay to this day.

Poppi Worthington died just over five years ago at her home in Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria, after spending part of the night in bed with her father, Paul Worthington.

David Roberts, the senior coroner for Cumbria, ruled on Monday that the 13-month-old had been sexually assaulted by her father just before her death, after a postmortem found suspicious injuries in her anus. The coroner concluded that Poppi had died from asphyxiation after Worthington brought her into his bed to abuse her and she was unable to breathe properly afterwards.

Probably better to just say it was sexual assault, than putting "possible." It seems highly likely.

They stroll through Disneyland in packs of 20 or more, motley crews that resemble a cross between the Hells Angels motorcycle gang and a grown-up Mickey Mouse Club with their Disney-themed tattoos and their matching denim vests strewn with trading pins and logos.

Disneyland social clubs, by most accounts, are harmless alliances of friends and family who meet up at the park to share a nerdy obsession for all things Disney. With club names such as Tigger Army and Neverland Mermaids, how threatening can they be?

“It’s all about the shared love for Disney,” said Mark Drop, Jr., 39, who founded a club called Flynn’s Riders, after a character in the Walt Disney animated film “Tangled.”

But a lawsuit filed in Orange County Superior Court has revealed a dark undercurrent to the pastime. The head of one club has accused another of using gangster-like tactics to try to collect “protection” money for a charity fundraiser at the park.

The lawsuit reads like a mob movie set in a theme park. The plot revolves around the Main Street Fire Station 55 Social Club, whose leaders claim they have been bullied and terrorized by the head of the White Rabbits Social Club.

The lawsuit names 19 members of the White Rabbits, accusing them of defamation, invasion of privacy, conspiracy and intentional infliction of emotional distress. It asks the court to reward the victims compensatory and punitive damages, to be determined during the trial.

The suit also names Disneyland, saying the park has failed to take action against the offending club. A park spokeswoman said Disney has not been served with the lawsuit and declined to comment further.

Some longtime Disneyland fans who are not involved with the clubs say the idea of adults forming clubs to show their love for the park is a bit strange but not dangerous.

>sex with students.

>31-year-old former teacher Charli Jones Parker was convicted for having sexual intercourse with two male 16-year-old students while she was still a teacher at Pickens Academy. Tuscaloosa News reports that Parker now wants her case overturned, arguing that a law prohibiting sex with students is supposedly unconstitutional.

>Parker’s seemingly incredulous appeal comes after a Morgan County Circuit Court judge issued a ruling in August saying that the law violated an equal protection clause which gives teachers the same treatment in court as other professions. Parker’s lawyer is pushing in a brief filed Tuesday that her conviction should be appealed on the same grounds.

>The law being contested by Parker prohibits school employees from having sex with students under the age of 19, irrespective of where the student is enrolled.

>Parker’s lawyer, Virginia Buck, is insisting that Alabama law supposedly does not make it a crime for members of other occupations to have consensual sex with 16, 17, and 18-year-olds, “even when there’s a position of trust.” Buck argued that teachers are being “unfairly singled out” in such cases.

I never added sex in my post. I only said too young to understand. That leaves it open ended. Too young to understand responsibilities, social consequences, stress, emotions in general coming from pregnency, too young to understand that the pervert whos lying to her about love is only in it for the age factor and is out hitting other young poon because he's too much of a loser to wait untill she gets older because he knows once a child is grown and aware she'll understand that he's just an incompetent sick fuck who preys on the weak and dumb. I mean in this day and age, why do you need to impregnate a 14 year old? She isn't going to die at 30. No need to rush guy. There's a lot a child doesn't understand, and having sex with them and knocking them up isn't going to help them grow.

Student activists and community members helped to get a production of "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" canceled at an Ithaca, New York high school after a white student was cast in a lead role.

According to the Ithaca Journal, five student activists wrote letters and put out a list of demands after a white student, who the SJW group concedes is a "a stellar actor, singer, and dancer," was cast as Esmeralda. Additionally, black student, 17-year-old Maddi Carroll, quit the play after the white student was cast.

“It shows you that theater wasn’t made for you," Carroll told the Ithaca Journal. "And it shows you that, if you can’t get the parts that are written for you, what parts are you going to get?”

In a letter that included a list of demands, the student activists demanded the high school girl cast as Esmeralda be removed from the role because, despite her talent, she's the "epitome of whiteness."

HONG KONG — Tonga began cleaning up on Tuesday from the most powerful storm to hit the South Pacific island nation in at least 60 years, which flattened its Parliament building, damaged houses and left thousands without power.

Tropical Cyclone Gita was measured as a Category 4 storm, with sustained winds of up to 145 miles per hour, when it crossed south of Tongatapu, Tonga’s main island, late Monday.

The storm knocked down the kingdom’s century-old Parliament building and tore off roofs in the capital city of Nuku’alofa.

“It was a terrifying night,” Graham Kenna, an adviser to Tonga’s National Emergency Management Office, told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. “We’re on the third floor of one of the safest buildings in Nuku’alofa and the building was shaking and getting pounded by debris from missing roofs.”

One man died of a heart attack while being rushed to a hospital, and the storm may have contributed to his death, a police spokeswoman, Sia Adams told Radio New Zealand. More than 30 people on Tongatapu were injured, three of them seriously, she said.

The parents of GOP Senate candidate Kevin Nicholson have maxed out their campaign contributions to the Democrat he's challenging, CNN reported Monday.

Each of Nicholson's parents gave $2,700 to Sen. Tammy Baldwin's (D-Wisc.) campaign in December 2017, the largest amount they can give during the Democratic primary.

Nicholson's mother, Donna, has been documented as giving thousands of dollars to Democratic candidates over the years. However, this is the first gift either of his parents have made to Baldwin's campaign since Nicholson announced his own bid.

"My parents have a different worldview than I do, and it is not surprising that they would support a candidate like Tammy Baldwin who shares their perspective," Nicholson said in a statement to CNN.

"I'm a conservative today not because I was born one, but because of the experience I earned as a Marine in combat, my experience as a husband and father, my choice to be a Christian, the schools I chose to attend and the decision to pursue the career that I have," he continued.

"Regardless of who may disagree with my life decisions, I would not trade these experiences for anything, and they will always guide my views as Wisconsin's next U.S. Senator."

Nicholson announced in July that he would be running in the GOP primary for Baldwin's seat.

State courts in Kansas are looking for $18 million to give their employees a pay raise. Wages are so low that nearly a third of state employees in the justice system are paid below the federal poverty level.

The situation has gotten so bad at the Sedgwick County District Court in Wichita that employees have started a food pantry for their co-workers. Here & Now's Peter O'Dowd speaks with the court's chief judge, James Fleetwood.

"It's something that our employees actually recognized on their own. They saw the difficulties that co-workers were dealing with. And so those with a little extra food stocked a pantry for those that were without. We provided some space for that. And as the community has become more aware of the existence of this pantry, several groups have wanted to help out. We even had a class of schoolchildren that contacted us and asked if they could have a food drive to help stock the pantry.

"People do use it. We've emptied the shelves almost twice now. We've had to go out and restock the shelves. We've just done that just recently. It's embarrassing truly that we have to do something like this."

"It's difficult. I will admit the economy is difficult. We've gone through an era of trying to adjust taxes through a prior administration, and the economy has not responded as hoped, I suppose. Revenue streams have dropped to the point where they cannot provide the salary for employees. Thirty-two percent of my employees have to have part-time jobs, compared to the state average worker who, only 6.2 percent of the average workers in Kansas have an extra job to make bills."

>>
"There's often questions asking, 'Well, why the court, not every other employee that the state may have?' And I try to distinguish that we're not talking about expanded government services. We're talking about a third branch of the government. The officers of that branch of government must be financed appropriately. Their support staff must be financed appropriately."

"When I first started as chief judge, we would have a position open up, there would be 15 people would apply for it. It was seen as a beginning-of-a-career job. Now, we're lucky to get five people apply for it. Of those, we are lucky if we have one that even qualifies for the job. So it's getting more and more difficult to get good talent in, and it's becoming just as difficult to keep those people here. We have people leaving us all the time because they can go to any call center and have an immediate and substantial raise.

"I've done everything I possibly can and introduced as much technology as I possibly can to to make the court efficient. We have a paperless court. We use computers and an e-filing as much as we possibly can. Those efficiencies that we can introduce, I think we've used up all of that. Our people have been as creative as they possibly can, and at this point in time it will be the quality of justice that will deteriorate if we cannot keep trained employees on the job."

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-02-11/israel-says-u-s-not-in-syrian-game-as-russia-seen-dominant

>Israel is counting on Russian President Vladimir Putin to keep confrontations with Iran and Syria from spiraling into war as the Trump administration mostly watches from the sidelines, a senior aide to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said.

>“The American part of the equation is to back us up,” but the U.S. currently “has almost no leverage on the ground,” Michael Oren, Netanyahu’s deputy minister for public diplomacy and a former ambassador to Washington, said in a phone interview Sunday. “America did not ante up in Syria. It’s not in the game.”

>Oren’s criticism reflects Israel’s view that Washington isn’t doing enough to curb Iran’s military ambitions in southern Syria, which borders the Israeli-held Golan Heights, as seven years of fighting wind down and actors consolidate gains.

>In the worst military confrontation in the border region since the 2006 Lebanon war, the Israeli air force struck 12 targets Saturday in Syria, including four belonging to Iran, after it said an Iranian drone penetrated Israeli airspace. A Syrian missile brought down an Israeli combat plane, the first lost to enemy fire since Israel’s first war in Lebanon in 1982.

>Netanyahu was in direct contact with the Russians -- the dominant player in Syria -- after the confrontation.

>“We believe Russia wants to stabilize its achievements in Syria and that it understands that Iranian military presence and activity there is a source of tension and friction,” said Chagai Tzuriel, director-general of Israel’s Intelligence Ministry. American involvement is crucial to preventing a full-scale war, he said, adding that “Syria is the key arena, and what happens in Syria influences the whole region and beyond.”

>Investors in Israel have grown accustomed to geopolitical shocks but Saturday’s showdown reverberated through the market. The TA-35 stock index fell Sunday to its lowest level in two months before rebounding Monday.

>Relying on Russia may be Israel’s best bet, but it’s not a sure one. Over the past few years Netanyahu has made a number of visits to Russia to lay out Israel’s red lines and ask Putin to rein in Iran. Russian news media have cited Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov as saying that Iran’s presence in the country is legitimate, and Moscow hasn’t promised to guarantee that pro-Iranian forces will leave southern Syria.

>Asked if the Russians can keep Iran and Syria at bay, Oren replied, “We assume that they have that ability. We’ll see.”

>Israeli commentators noted that a Russian statement on Saturday’s clashes implicitly criticized Israel for violating Syrian sovereignty, but didn’t criticize the drone infiltration into Israel that prompted the attack.

>On Sunday -- more than 24 hours after the confrontation -- the White House issued a statement backing Israel’s “right to defend itself from the Iranian-backed Syrian and militia forces in southern Syria” and calling on Iran and its allies to “cease provocative actions.”

>Netanyahu also conferred with U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. Israel’s absence from Tillerson’s current Middle East tour has raised questions about how much Israel can depend on the White House, even though U.S. Vice President Mike Pence visited Israel last month.

>“I think a visit to Israel by Secretary Tillerson this week, followed by strong U.S.-Israeli coordinated messaging to Russia and the EU,” could allay concerns about U.S. indifference on Syria, tweeted Dan Shapiro, who served as U.S. ambassador to Israel under President Barack Obama. Failing to stop in Israel after Saturday’s clashes would be “malpractice” by Tillerson, Shapiro said.

>White House National Security Council Spokesman Michael Anton said Israel should have no doubts about the U.S. stance.

>“We support Israel’s security, and the idea that we are ‘on the sidelines’ when its security is threatened is very far from the case,” Anton said. “We have a very close relationship with our Israeli national security counterparts at all levels.”

>Russia entered the Syrian war to prop up its client, President Bashar Assad. Iran and Hezbollah also support Assad, and see the vacuum in Syria as a chance to build a sphere of influence stretching from Tehran to the Mediterranean Sea. The U.S. says it opposes Assad, but has limited its role in Syria to helping fight Islamic State.

>Russia’s interest “is to reach a political and military solution in Syria and to rebuild it,” Amos Yadlin, a former chief of Israeli military intelligence, told reporters on a conference call Saturday. “A conflict in the north between Israel, Hezbollah and Iran is not in their interest.”

>Yadlin, now head of Tel Aviv University’s Institute for National Security Studies, doesn’t expect Israel’s salvation in Syria to come from the U.S.

>“America is busy with other things,” he said.

Train engineer Tom Harding leaves the courtroom after hearing he was acquitted.

The town was stupid to allow, in its downtown area, a sharp curve in the railroad.

That's what happens when the federal gvment decides to cut in the budget and leave the railraod safety to companies. Company on the verge of bankrupcy. What could go wrong... ? Who wouyld've tought that they could cut on security ?
And it's not the towns fault, you seem to mention it in OP. The federal is the only one in charge of railraods. But not only that, the town have asked multiple times for the railroad to go on another route after the incident, the federal said no. So the train will keep passing by in Lac Megantic. Canada at its finest.

wtf are you fags smoking
the train faggot was responsible for keeping the train safe and not killing people why would you leave a train on an incline to set automatic brake which only works if train is running and think fucking shit on fire will not ruin your retard plan why not set hand brakes ? lazy faggot bozz man didnt tell me too wtf? faggot engineers and faggot corporate idiots should all be hung in the name of justice

>The bulk of Horan's testimony revolved around questions about the different brake systems on a train, and the rules, regulations and tests used when applying a train's handbrakes.

Crown prosecutor Sacha Blais asked Horan about an email he'd received from MMA superintendent Paul Budge asking him to remind Harding not to leave the train's automatic brakes on when a convoy is parked.

"I know that all locomotive engineers had been informed of this issue," he said, speaking specifically of train engineers working between Farnham and Megantic, "because they are the ones who used the automatic brakes on unattended trains."

He explained that according to safety regulations, the automatic brakes should have been released when a train is parked, and only the hand brakes should be used to secure a train.

Before 2009, 5 men were needed for 20 wagon. After the de-regulation it is 1 men per 72 wagons. Employees from Canada transport ministery did not agree or trust that system but nothing could be done against it. That one men needs to put manual brake on 72 wagons, make mecanical inspection everytime he stops ? Its completely out of touch with reality.
Again before 2009, there was 1 inspector from federal per 14 tank wagon. After it is 1 per 4000. One month before the incident, an employee from Irwin refinery, reported that the product quality was not homogeneous and that test came in too late to correct any safety issues. The Western petroleum company should've classified the dangerous product 2 instead of 3 and not use dot 111 tank wagon.

I agree with you. Heads should be rolling. Leaving a train full of bombs in the middle in a city should come with more than 1 man and serious inspections. Blaming that lone man for everything is denying the causes. Literally, they were bombs for fuck sake. Who tought leaving this unattended was a good idea ? The ones that should be hung are sitting in the prime minister office and at the MMA.

This sounds like Harper cuts. Hopefully someone lobbies Trudeau to put the regulations back in place.

A self-styled “womb witch” has encouraged women to drink their own menstrual blood as a natural way to boost their energy levels.

Nadine Lee, 30, teaches women the world over about “menstruation magic” practices that can be done to improve their health during that time of the month.

Menstrual spirituality has taken the world by storm recently, with women sharing rituals online in a bid to prove periods are nothing to be ashamed of.

Now, Bali-based healer Nadine is teaching her own brand of the movement- including pouring her blood into the earth and drinking it to perk up.

Her comments come hot on the heels of ex-hairdresser Yazmina Jade urging women to use their mentrual blood for facials.

A female spirit healer painted her face with menstruation blood in a 'sacred ritual' designed to break down stigmas surrounding periods .

The feminine spirit healer, based in Australia's Gold Coast, has released footage of her ritual which sparked a backlash on social media .

Yazmina has hit back at those who accused her of being 'sick' and 'mental' - claiming she has never felt better than after her apparent act show of defiance.

Pediatricians in Los Angeles said they were treating an 11-year-old boy's skin abscess when they made an unusual discovery -- a live snail inside the wound.

Dr. Albert Khait, an assistant professor of pediatrics at Loma Linda University in Los Angeles, said in a case report published by website BMJ Case Reports that an 11-year-old boy came into the pediatric ward with a skin abscess about a week after he scraped his elbow in a tide pool on a California beach.

Khait said he and his colleagues followed regular procedure for such wounds by lancing and draining the abscess, and they soon discovered a hard object measuring under .02 inches in diameter.

Closer inspection revealed the object was a snail, later identified as a checkered periwinkle marine snail.

Khait said he was surprised to find the snail was alive. Khait said doctors determined the boy had apparently gotten the snail's egg embedded in his elbow when he scraped it, and the mollusk later hatched inside his body.

"The unique characteristics of this intertidal mollusk appear to have enabled it to survive in the subcutaneous tissue for a week, despite the hostile environment of a skin abscess," he wrote in the report's abstract.

"This case emphasizes adherence to current professional guidelines that recommend incision and drainage of suspected skin abscesses and encourages clinicians to take a careful history of present illness which may aid in identification of subsequent cases of marine snails, or other living organisms, residing in skin abscesses," he wrote.

Khait said the boy, whose arm fully recovered, took the snail home as a pet. However, he said the boy's family reported the animal died after living only about a day outside of its former abscess home.

This is similar to a story a few years ago about a boy who got a snail in his knee after scraping it.

technically, wouldn't that make his the first confirmed reptilian or something?
