As Memorial Day weekend wore on, by Sunday morning Chicago police had responded to the shootings of 21 people, three of whom died from their injuries, officials said. The grim tally was only expected to increase as a shooting Sunday about 6 a.m. in the 1300 block of South Throop Street in Englewood is said to have left two dead and two injured. The shooting was possibly in retaliation for an earlier one in the same neighborhood on West Hastings Street, which also left a man dead, investigators said. Details on that shooting, in which four people were struck, were

Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo, said in an interview that aired Sunday that text messages between former FBI investigators Peter Strzok and Lisa Page “sound an awful lot like a coup” and could even be treason. (Snip) "In my view when you have people that are in the highest echelons of the law enforcement of this nation saying things like that, that sounds an awful lot like a coup--and it could well be treason and I think we need to know more,” she said.

Standing in front of a group of potential donors in a well-appointed home, Chesa Boudin began a stump speech that would perhaps only fly in what was once the epicenter of the counterculture. “I was in diapers when my parents left me with the baby sitter to participate in an armored car robbery,” he said. “They never came home.”Boudin, 38, is campaigning for an unlikely role for someone whose parents, operatives in the 1960s radical left-wing group the Weather Underground, went to prison for their roles as getaway drivers in a botched stickup that left three men — including two police officers — dead.

Secret FBI tapes that accuse Martin Luther King Jr of having extramarital affairs with '40 to 45 women' and even claim he 'looked on and laughed' as a pastor friend raped a parishioner exist, an author has claimed. The civil rights hero was also heard allegedly joking he was the founder of the 'International Association for the Advancement of P***y-Eaters' on an agency recording that was obtained by bugging his room, according to the sensational claims made by biographer David Garrow - a Pulitzer prize-winning author and biographer of MLK.
Adachi leak: SF police union calls on

The San Francisco police union called Saturday for Chief Bill Scott to step down, saying he is unfairly blaming rank-and-file officers for a bungled leak investigation he had ordered. “It’s time for Chief Scott to go. There’s no way around it,” Tony Montoya, president of the city’s Police Officers Association, wrote in a scorching letter. The association has had a corrosive relationship with Scott from the time the chief was appointed in 2017, and the leak case — and subsequent raid on a journalist’s home — caused the long-stewing antipathy to boil over.

Nationwide injunctions—when a single district court judge can halt the enforcement of a law or policy across the country—have been stymying President Trump’s agenda from the get-go. (Snip) encouraged plaintiffs to forum shop—to seek the jurisdiction most friendly to their cause. It’s no accident that nearly all of the national injunctions issued against the Trump Administration have come from deep blue states.This has also resulted in a measure of judicial absurdity. Individual judges have declared that President Trump cannot undo actions by executive order, despite the fact that many of those same actions were created by executive

When President Trump announced the futility of attempting an infrastructure bill with Pelosi and Schumer as they simultaneously tried to impeach him, the president certainly knew he was going to issue a declassification memo within hours.The declassification directive to AG Bill Barr creates a dynamic ensuring Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer will align with the former intelligence officials and further attack the offices of the President and Attorney General; they have few options.(Snip)except to manufacture a narrative shield and accuse the President of unethical, immoral and criminal conduct.

This claim is so stupid that I can’t even give it one of our coveted Green Weenie Awards: Racial Resentment May Be Fueling Climate Denial. After Barack Obama took office, white Americans were less likely to see climate change as a serious problem, according to a recent paper published in the journal Environmental Politics. The study further finds evidence of a link between racial resentment and climate change denial. This is not to suggest that all climate deniers are racists, merely that racial resentment may, in part, be driving climate denial. I got curious, naturally. Here’s the abstract of the underlying “academic” paper:

President Trump never revoked former CIA Director John Brennan's security clearance. The president announced in August that Brennan's security clearance was being stripped due to "erratic behavior" that disqualified him from having access to sensitive information. But the White House never followed through with the complicated bureaucratic process of revocation, a source told the New York Times. A CIA spokesperson declined to comment, telling the Washington Examiner the agency does not discuss individual security clearances. The White House did not immediately return a request for comment. The revelation comes after Trump gave Attorney General William Barr "full and complete authority to

Before it was written, the American press demanded President Donald John Trump release the Mueller Report. He did. Now the president plans to release more documents concerning the spying on his campaign by Obama. He has asked Bill Barr to do so. The press is alarmed. The Washington Post said, "President Trump's new executive order giving the attorney general broad authority to declassify government secrets threatens to expose U.S. intelligence sources."That is from the newspaper that published the Pentagon Papers. The story won a Pulitzer.

Adapting the phrase from the Roman poet Horace, Wilfred Owen during World War I turned "it is was sweet and seemly to die for one’s country" into an anti-war poem. He may have had a point when it came to that war, a war that destroyed the very best of Europe’s young men and, in my view, set it on a downward spiral. Today Western Europe, with all its glorious architecture, art, and music seems like a living Disneyland.Take, for example, the fire that gobbled up the roof and spire of one of Paris’ most enduring symbols, Notre Dame.

With approximately four thousand things happening every day that would, in previous eras, have dominated the news cycle for three months, it’s easy to lose track of events that might once have been considered headline news. For example: Did you remember that the U.S. is in the middle of a trade war with China? There are a lot of consequences to that—China no longer buys U.S. oil; the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development predicts a GDP drop of 0.7 percent by 2021 as global growth slows; consumer goods that are made in China are getting much more expensive—but in addition to the global economic implications, there’s one fact

Brussels — Across the continent of Europe, anti-EU populists and proponents of closer unity made a final push for support Sunday as 21 nations went to the polls in up a continent-wide battle for influence at the European Parliament. Right-wing nationalists who want to slash immigration into Europe and return power to national governments are expected to make gains, though mainstream parties are tipped to hold onto power in the 751-seat legislature that sits in both Brussels and Strasbourg. The election began on Thursday, but most of the EU’s 28 member states, including the biggest of all, Germany and France, are voting on Sunday, and the results are expected overnight.

For a normal person, finding out that you're not being charged with criminal conspiracy with a foreign government would be great enough news. But to find out that your former mistress's attorney is facing criminal charges from two separate U.S. attorneys for two separate sets of crimes? That's just raw, unadulterated schadenfreude for the president of the United States. Part-time #Resistance hero and full-time Trump foe Michael Avenatti finally graduated from media grifting and refusing to pay back creditors to big boy crimes, and he now faces upwards of a century in the clinker.
