http://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/403492-dnc-moves-to-limit-role-of-superdelegates-in-presidential-nominations

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) voted overwhelmingly on Saturday to limit the role of superdelegates in choosing the party’s presidential nominee, moving to heal internal divisions that emerged during the bitter 2016 primaries.

The reform, adopted by voice vote at the DNC’s summer meeting in Chicago, will bar superdelegates — lawmakers, former presidents and other party dignitaries — from voting during the first ballot of the nominating process.

Meanwhile the New York Democratic party establishment is so scared of upstart progressives and the DSA they're just nominating random members to keep "insurgents" like Ocasio-Cortez from getting nominated.

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/08/24/nyregion/queens-candidates-nominated-without-knowing.html

>There is just one problem: Ms. Gambichler, a 72-year-old retired court clerk, did not know she was running for anything. Nor does she wish to run. “I have no idea what that’s about,” she said.

>She had been nominated, without her knowledge, by the borough’s Democratic Party leadership, which is struggling to maintain control after the longtime Queens party chairman, Representative Joseph Crowley, was trounced by the left-leaning insurgent Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in a June Congressional primary that sent tremors through the Democratic establishment nationwide.

>Ms. Gambichler is hardly alone.

>The New York Times called dozens of the Queens party machine’s nominees for county committee. The candidates for 21 seats were running without their consent.

>Most of these candidates did not know they were running at all until a reporter told them; two, including Ms. Gambichler, found out when they got letters from the city Board of Elections showing how their names would appear on the Sept. 13 primary ballot. Only four candidates The Times spoke to said they were running on purpose.

>after 3 more years it will be up to $2.5 trillion dollar a year!
>thanks obama!
The Treasury Department is on track to borrow nearly $1 trillion this fiscal year, almost double the amount the federal government borrowed last year, The Washington Post reported Saturday.

The government is likely to borrow $955 billion during this fiscal year, which is the first full fiscal year under President Trump. The government last year borrowed $519 billion, the Post noted, adding that the increase was attributed primarily to the "fiscal outlook."

The Treasury Department last week released its estimates for how much it would need to borrow for the next two quarters.

The report came the same day that the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) moved up its projected deadline for when the Treasury would run out of cash, citing the Republican tax overhaul.
The nonpartisan budget scorekeeper had estimated in November that the Treasury would run out of cash in late March or early April. After Trump signed the tax-cut law in December, however, the CBO revised its estimate to the first half of March.

If the Treasury Department runs out of cash, the government would delay payments, default on its debt or both, the CBO said.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin urged lawmakers Tuesday to raise the debt ceiling as soon as possible.

$8.63bn wasted on Russian "stealth fighter" fraud scheme
http://www.business-standard.com/article/economy-policy/8-63-billion-advanced-fighter-aircraft-project-with-russia-put-on-ice-118042000029_1.html

>The proposal for India and Russia to jointly develop an advanced fighter — the eponymous Fifth Generation Fighter Aircraft (FGFA) — has been formally buried. Business Standard has learnt that National Security Advisor Ajit Doval conveyed the decision to a Russian ministerial delegation at a “Defence Acquisition Meeting” in end-February.

>Doval and Defence Secretary Sanjay Mitra, who attended the meeting, asked the Russians to proceed alone with developing their fifth-generation fighter. They said India might possibly join the project later, or buy the fully developed fighter outright, after it entered service with the Russian Air Force.

>New Delhi and Moscow have discussed the FGFA since 2007, when they agreed that Hindustan Aeronautics (HAL) would partner Russia’s Sukhoi Design Bureau (Sukhoi) in developing and manufacturing the fighter. In 2010, Sukhoi flew the fighter, called Perspektivny Aviatsionny Kompleks Frontovoy Aviatsii, or “Prospective Airborne Complex of Frontline Aviation” (PAK-FA). Seven prototypes are currently in flight-testing.

>Russia said the PAK-FA met its needs, but the India Air Force (IAF) wanted a better fighter. So HAL and Sukhoi negotiated an $8.63-billion deal to improve the PAK-FA with the IAF’s requirements of stealth (near-invisibility to radar), super-cruise (supersonic cruising speed), networking (real-time digital links with other battlefield systems) and airborne radar with world-beating range. In all, the IAF demanded some 50 improvements to the PAK-FA, including 360-degree radar and more powerful engines.

>Defence ministry sources who played a direct role in negotiations with Russia say much of this money was earmarked for Indian production facilities for manufacturing 127 FGFAs, and for India’s work share in developing advanced avionics for the fighter. It also included the cost of four PAK-FA prototypes for IAF test pilots to fly.

>Now, the IAF has backed away from the FGFA because it argues the PAK-FA — which Sukhoi has been test-flying since January 2010 — is not stealthy enough for a fifth-generation combat aircraft.

Well, hm, it did not take too long to blame Russia for something. Because NATO is a defensive alliance and absolutely never wants and even capable of simulating GNSS spoofing attack.

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-46178940
Surprisingly, media narrowly avoids directly blaming Russia for collision with the tanker, since, it turns out, their transponder was offline and they weren't reacting to environment too well.

https://www.defensenews.com/naval/2018/11/11/warnings-and-confusion-preceded-norwegian-frigate-disaster-heres-what-we-know/
>The responses from Ingstad appear confused, at one point saying that if they altered the course it would take them too close to the shoals, which prompted Sola TS to respond that they had to do something or a collision would be unavoidable.
>Contributing to the confusion, the Ingstad appears to have been transiting with its Automatic Identification System switched off. That seems to have delayed recognition by central control and the other ships in the area that Ingstad was inbound and heading into danger, the account in VG seems to indicate.

On Nov. 11, 2018, the Norwegian Armed Forces, or Forsvaret, had said the ship was "stable." Over the weekend, workers had also added two additional anchor wires between the vessel and the shore, for a total of seven.

WASHINGTON — Supreme Court Justice Anthony M. Kennedy announced Wednesday that he will retire at the end of next month, preparing the way for the most significant change in the court's makeup in half a century.

The vacancy will allow President Donald Trump to make the U.S. Supreme court a solidly conservative body for years, if not generations, to come — a towering legacy of his time in office.

https://www.vox.com/platform/amp/policy-and-politics/2018/7/22/17600344/kavanaugh-watergate-executive-power-nixon

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s views on presidential powers are not helping those concerned about the integrity of the Russia investigation sleep better at night. The latest development: the judge’s suggestion many years ago that the Supreme Court might have gotten it wrong when it compelled President Richard Nixon to turn over the Watergate tapes.

In the trove of documentation Kavanaugh turned in to the Senate Judiciary Committee as part of the confirmation process is a 1999 roundtable discussion where Kavanaugh floated the idea that maybe the United States’ highest court made a mistake in 1974. That’s the year it ruled unanimously in United States v. Nixon that the president had to hand over to a federal district court the tape recordings and other subpoenaed materials tied to the Watergate break-in. Mark Sherman at the Associated Press was the first to report the comments.

Kavanaugh’s belief in the importance of executive power is already under scrutiny, especially in light of special counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing investigation and the possibility that President Donald Trump could be subpoenaed or, less likely, indicted. As Vox’s Jen Kirby points out, the Supreme Court could wind up hearing some element of the Russia investigation, and there’s a possibility Kavanaugh could be one of the justices to decide on the matter.

In a transcript of a roundtable discussion published in the January-February 1999 issue of the Washington Lawyer on attorney-client privilege, Kavanaugh suggested that the Nixon case might have been “wrongly decided.” Per the AP, he said:

But maybe Nixon was wrongly decided — heresy though it is to say so. Nixon took away the power of the president to control information in the executive branch by holding that the courts had power and jurisdiction to order the president to disclose information in response to a subpoena sought by a subordinate executive branch official. That was a huge step with implications to this day that most people do not appreciate sufficiently...Maybe the tension of the time led to an erroneous decision.
At another point, he said perhaps the court should have stayed out of the dispute altogether.

It’s not necessarily an open-and-shut case that Kavanaugh disagrees with the Supreme Court’s 8-0 decision on the Nixon tapes.

https://www.breitbart.com/entertainment/2020/06/06/hbo-maxs-looney-tunes-reboot-bans-elmer-fudd-from-having-a-gun/

HBO Max’s reboot of the Looney Tunes cartoon features iconic character Elmer Fudd but without his classic rifle, the show’s executive producer announced.
According to the series executive producer and showrunner Peter Browngardt, the new series Looney Tunes Cartoons — which has launched on HBO Max — will still feature Elmer Fudd as a characteristically violent character. However, he will now carry a scythe instead of a gun and his attacks will be restricted to using sticks of dynamite, booby traps, and dropping heavy objects on Bugs Bunny.

“We’re not doing guns,” he told The New York Times. “But we can do cartoony violence — TNT, the Acme stuff. All that was kind of grandfathered in.”

In the original series, Elmer Fudd carries a rifle around as he unsuccessfully tries to hunt down rabbits such as Bugs Bunny. Despite the absence of a gun, Browngardt said that they tried to stick as much to the original as possible.

“I always thought, ‘What if Warner Bros had never stopped making Looney Tunes cartoons?” he added. “As much as we possibly could, we treated the production in that way.”

The Telegraph notes that the decision was taken in response to gun violence in the United States, as large swathes of the entertainment industry continue to rally against America’s right to bear arms.

Storyboard artist Jo Ryan, who worked on the show, admitted that the show is the anthesis of a supposed wave of anti-bullying throughout America.

…Iron man Mattis halts deliveries. Nice to know that at least one person has their eye on the bottom line. Didn't the president promise to get rid of the thing completely?

http://thehill.com/policy/defense/382711-pentagon-stops-accepting-f-35-deliveries-from-lockheed-report

The Defense Department has reportedly stopped accepting F-35 jets from Lockheed Martin because of a dispute over who would be responsible for covering the costs to fix a production error found in more than 200 of them.

“Production on the F-35 program continues and we are confident we will meet our delivery target of 91 aircraft for 2018. While all work in our factories remains active, the F-35 Joint Program Office has temporarily suspended accepting aircraft until we reach an agreement on a contractual issue and we expect this to be resolved soon,” a Lockheed spokeswoman told Reuters.

Fixing the jets won’t be simple because it could require technicians to travel to stations around the world, anonymous sources told Reuters.


It isn’t clear when the suspension began, but the Pentagon allegedly received two jets despite the suspension.

This isn’t the first time technical errors have disrupted the Pentagon’s most expensive weapons program.
