In the video, the Arkansas Capitol dome can be seen lit against the night sky as the Dodge Dart accelerates to 10, then 20 mph.

“Oh my goodness,” a man says as he flicks on the car’s lights. “Freedom!”

The vehicle speeds up the hill, and the last thing that comes into view before a crash is a large, newly installed monument.

Authorities say the man in the video is Michael Tate Reed, an alleged serial destroyer of Ten Commandments monuments.

He was arrested by state capitol police officers at the scene early Wednesday, according to Chris Powell, a spokesman for the Arkansas secretary of state. Reed is charged with criminal trespass, first-degree criminal mischief and defacing objects of public interest.

That object of public interest was a three-ton granite monument that had been installed less than 24 hours before its violent, pre-dawn demise on the southwest lawn of the state capitol in Little Rock.

Crews had cleaned up the crash site by late Wednesday morning and taken the broken pieces to storage, Powell said, but it was unclear whether the controversial monument would be reinstalled.

Reed could not be reached for comment. Powell told The Washington Post he wasn’t sure whether Reed had been released from jail.

>Michael Tate Reed II stated in a letter that his psychotic breaks led to getting inspiration from a Dracula movie, thinking Michael Jackson’s spirit was in meat, believing he was the incarnation of an occult leader and attempting to contact Lucifer’s high priestess he called Gwyneth Paltrow.

>Within weeks of being home, Reed drove to Kentucky to outrun a storm he thought was evil and following him. He took pills while there and started hallucinating on the drive back.

>“The voice had told me if I didn’t stop the cars, people would die. The voice told me the cars were all carrying meat that was infected with the spirit of Michael Jackson and it was a killer virus,” he wrote.

>Reed was to have a monthly shot for his antipsychotic treatment, but it was $900 after insurance benefits were applied. He was able to get two shots but then could no longer pay.

back in virginia where i grew up one of the courthouse bosses insisted on having a christmas tree, so they said anyone of any religion could put whatever they wanted on the courthouse lawn so one guy made a big flying spaghetti monster nativity scene and thats been on the courthouse lawn next to the menorah, anatomically correct statue of goat-satan, nude mother nature (with nice tits), totem pole, etc. every year since.
make me wonder about having rule 34 et al chiseled into stone and placed at the state capitol building. i have a 2nd cousin who married into a family with a tombstone business, he could be the guy.

As you no doubt will have heard, IMCO and the EU commission are trying to reform the firearms regulations within the EU. This change has been spearheaded by the british. Who will be brexiting, but still want to ruin everything for the rest of us while they still can.

The IMCO & EU commission have now reached a draft text which they believe will be able to pass the EU parliament. The proposal will be presented to parliament in March 2017.

The proposed changes to the current laws can be found here: https://www.docdroid.net/JCvID2y/directive-91-477-compromis-16122016.docx.html

Some of the things that our american friends will find revolting are extensive central registration (for up to decades after destruction of a firearm), medical & psychological tests, suitability checks at least every 5 years,...

It's interesting to note that some member states are already looking for work arounds. Most notably the Czech, who are planning to declare that all citizens are necessary for security of state and therefor excempt of the proposed EU rules. It'll be interesting to see how that plays out.

Below I'll go over some of the stuff that would change for me as a Belgian:

Constitutional Amendment Specifying a Right to Keep and Bear Arms Passes Czech Chamber of Deputies, Moves to Senate

>Citizens of the Czech Republic will have the right to acquire, possess and carry firearms by a constitutional law. The change will give the owners of legally-held weapons the possibility to intervene if necessary to ensure the security of the Czech Republic. There were 139 deputies for the constitutional law, 120 were required. Only 9 deputies were against it. The law still has to be approved by the Senate.
>"Show me a single terrorist act in Europe that would have been committed by a legally-held weapon. We do not want to disarm citizens at a time when security in Europe is worsening, "Interior Minister Milan Chovanec was advocating the draft constitutional act in the Chamber of Deputies.
...
>"Citizens of the Czech Republic have the right to acquire, possess and carry arms and ammunition in order to fulfill the tasks set in subsection 2. This right may be limited by law and law may set further conditions for its exercise in case that it is necessary for protection of rights and freedoms of others, of public order and safety, lives and health or in order to prevent criminality." the draft law MEPs approved.
>"We expect it to increase the security of the citizens of the Czech Republic. We will be able to stand against the absurd European directive, even if the law does not solve everything on its own," Váňa also said. Minister Chovanec is preparing a lawsuit against the directive for the European Court, which has gained support from the government.

Their amendment specifically allows infringements, which seems like a bad move.

Would be interesting to see how the EU would react to a member nation flat out ignoring their directive. What enforcement mechanism do they even have?

The enforcement mechanism is fines & sanctions. But the EU's founding charter states that the EU cannot intervene in matters of national security.
This is why the Czechs added the "to ensure the security of the Czech Republic" clause to their law. It basically means the EU can do fuckall.

Updated | Anonymous, the global hacking collective, believes that alien life exists—and that NASA is about to confirm it.

The shadowy group made the claim in a 12-and-a-half-minute video published on an unofficial YouTube channel on Tuesday.

The video centers around recent findings by the American space organization, including the discovery of 219 new planet candidates—10 of which present similar conditions to Earth—by NASA’s Kepler space telescope team in June, as well as comments made by a senior NASA official during a U.S. government hearing.

Newsweek is, and always has been since its inception, a mouthpiece and puppet for the transnational capitalists.

Do aliens exist? Who knows? But the revelation that little green men exist and that you will be eaten/tortured/raped/mutilated if you do not accept help from a one world government (because of course no individual nation could possibly stand a chance in defense against this obviously 'superior' Race from space) has been seen as a plan to convince people to not hold onto their silly, antiquated ideas about nation-states in the face of mass panic.

Science has shown that combining base chemicals will produce the needed materials for life to form. Life on other worlds isn't a question. Of course, there's literally no way it'll ever matter because of the vast distances involved. Any contact with aliens will be a prerecorded message from a race that long ago died out or whatever.

To quote Event Horizon: "This place is a toooooomb."

I'm watching NBC's coverage. Predictably, they've tried to give the impression that the "assault weapon" was an automatic weapon.

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/06/14/us/steve-scalise-congress-shot-alexandria-virginia.html

Steve Scalise, the majority whip of the House of Representatives, was shot at a baseball field in Alexandria, Va., when a gunman opened fire near a Y.M.C.A. on Wednesday morning, a congressional official said.

Representative Mo Brooks told CNN that “at least five” people were injured — including two law enforcement officers and a congressional aide — while members of a Republican congressional baseball team were practicing.

Rep. Roger Williams, a Republican of Texas, said in a statement that one of his aides was shot.

Officials described a scene of chaos and of players taking cover wherever they could on the field.

Rep. Mike Bishop from Michigan said the gunman was standing outside the fence line behind third base aiming for the field’s only exit.

Congress Pushes Bill to Let Lawmakers Carry Concealed Weapons Anywhere in U.S.
Bill to boost security for members after Alexandria shooting
http://freebeacon.com/issues/congress-pushes-bill-let-lawmakers-carry-concealed-weapons-anywhere-u-s/

>Congress is considering new legislation that would permit lawmakers to carry a concealed firearm wherever they perform official duties across the United States, according to a copy of the new bill that marks an unprecedented effort to help lawmakers confront a growing threat to their safety.

>Rep. Brian Babin (R., Texas) introduced the legislation on Tuesday, about a week after a radicalized shooter opposed to President Donald Trump and Republicans shot Rep. Steve Scalise (R., La.), a congressional staffer, a lobbyist, and two Capitol police officers in Virginia.

>The legislation would enable certified members of Congress to carry a concealed weapon "in nearly every conceivable scenario," according to information released by Babin's office.

>The legislation would supersede any other state or federal concealed carry laws, meaning that lawmakers would still enjoy the privilege even if secondary laws state otherwise. This is particularly significant, as the District of Columbia has notoriously strict gun laws that have complicated similar efforts in the past.

>Authorities scanned four containers on the ship and cleared them, reopening the terminal around 3:30 a.m. on Thursday. The Coast Guard said the terminal was evacuated during the search.

>The tip calls were prompted by a YouTube video, Coast Guard spokesman, Lt. James B. Zorn told the Times. An account of one call appeared in a YouTube video on Wednesday, according to the newspaper. In the video, George Webb, a frequent peddler of far-right conspiracy theories, described having a conversation with the Coast Guard.

>“Well I just got off the phone with the Coast Guard in South Carolina, and they were very obviously, you know, hesitant to call out all the dogs and call out all the radiation meters and all that without knowing who our source is,” Webb said in the video.

PARK CITY, Utah (AP) — Democrat Hillary Clinton encouraged Mitt Romney to take a job as President Donald Trump’s secretary of state, the former Republican presidential candidate said Friday.

Romney, speaking to a high-powered gathering of GOP officials, top donors and business leaders at a luxury Utah resort, said that when Trump briefly considered him late last year for Clinton’s former job, Romney called “virtually all the former secretaries of state” including Clinton.

“In each case, each of them said, ‘Please, please take that job if it’s offered to you,'” Romney said, drawing laughs from the crowd. “We would very much like to see you serve in that capacity.”

https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2017/04/fcc-announces-plan-abandon-net-neutrality-and-isp-privacy
>Today, the chairman of the FCC announced his desire to abandon the agency’s net neutrality protections – which protect online competition, free speech, and privacy from interference by Internet service providers like Comcast and AT&T – by undermining the legal authority behind those protections.

>Rolling back the FCC’s Open Internet Order would mean losing the only rules that meaningfully prevent ISPs from taking advantage of their control over your Internet connection to shape your Internet experience and the market for services and devices that rely on that Internet connection. Since most Americans have only one option for broadband service, ISPs would have unchecked power to extract tolls from you and from businesses that wish to reach you. While the big incumbents like Facebook and Netflix might be able to pay those tolls, the next Facebook or Netflix would have a very hard time competing. Investors hesitate to fund startups that can be held for ransom by someone like an ISP. And the situation is even more dire for nonprofits like schools, libraries, educational sites, and political groups.

>Chairman Pai suggests these fears are unfounded, but we’ve seen ISPs use every method at their disposal to favor their own content over competitors, going up to and even over the lines drawn by the previous FCC. This is particularly concerning given that at least one major ISP, Verizon, ran a news service that banned content regarding mass surveillance and net neutrality itself as contrary to the company’s interests. In Canada, an ISP blocked access to a site being used by a labor union to organize against it. A decade of misguided FCC policymaking unfortunately helped create the dysfunctional ISP market; the Open Internet Order is our best hope for preventing ISPs from abusing their power to become private gatekeepers on speech.

>Today’s announcement cleverly pretends that the current “bright-line rules,” which clearly prohibit blocking and throttling, might survive. The law says otherwise. If Chairman Pai follows through on his intention to “reclassify” broadband service, it would be legally impossible for the FCC to enforce any such rules. How do we know this? Because the DC Circuit said so.

>The same is true for privacy. Pai suggested that the Federal Trade Commission could enforce privacy requirements, but this is an empty promise for two reasons. Fir

Comcast sends out hundreds of thousands of fake anti-net neutrality letters to the FCC using customer information, threatens lawsuit against site that exposes it.

>Comcastroturf.com encourages Internet users to search the Federal Communication Commission (FCC)’s docket to check if a fake comment was submitted using their name and address to attack Title II based net neutrality protections. It has been widely reported that more than 450,000 of these comments have been submitted to the FCC – and as a result of the site at Comcastroturf.com, Fight for the Future has heard from dozens of people who say that anti-net neutrality comments were submitted using their personal information without their permission. We have connected individuals with Attorneys Generals and have called for the FCC act immediately to investigate this potential fraud.

>“Companies like Comcast have a long history of funding shady astroturfing operations like the one we are trying to expose with Comcastroturf.com, and also a long history of engaging in censorship,” said Greer, “this is a perfect example of why we need bright line net neutrality rules that protect our free speech online, and why we can’t just trust Internet Service Providers to behave when they’ve abused their power time and time again.”

President Donald Trump has instructed the State Department to slash its $10 billion budget for funding United Nations programs by as much as 50 percent, Foreign Policy is reporting.

The article said the move is “signaling an unprecedented retreat by [the] administration from international operations that keep the peace, provide vaccines for children, monitor rogue nuclear weapons programs, and promote peace talks from Syria to Yemen.”

FP used three unnamed sources for its report, which also called Trump’s directive “draconian measures” taken ahead of the planned release on Thursday of his 2018 federal budget proposal.

The budget “is expected to include cuts of up to 37 percent for spending on the State Department, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), and other foreign assistance programs, including the U.N., in next year’s budget,” according to the report, which went on:
It remains unclear whether the full extent of the steeper U.N. cuts will be reflected in the 2018 budget, which will be prepared by the White House Office of Management and Budget, or whether, as Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has proposed, the cuts would be phased in over the coming three years. One official close to the Trump administration said Tillerson has been given flexibility to decide how the cuts would be distributed.

Richard Gowan, a U.N. expert at the European Council on Foreign Relations, told FP these budget cuts would create “chaos.”

The U.N. refugee agency (UNHCR), for example, received nearly 40 percent of its budget from the United States in 2016. Cutting the U.S. contribution would “leave a gaping hole that other big donors would struggle to fill,” according to Gowan.

The left-leaning FP cites Trump’s intention to cut diplomacy and foreign assistance programs will help him increase the funding for the U.S. military by $54 billion, a “shift” from the Obama administration’s approach to the federal budget.

Fox barely covered it in this little blurb. I don't see how you people can consider Fox a legitimate news source when it doesn't give you more than a couple paragraphs on the most important issues. This article was buried pretty deep too, under a bunch of stories about how at the Democrats are ruining America of course and all those stories about how Trump is defending your rights and making heavy artillery legal for recreational use.

http://insider.foxnews.com/2017/03/07/rand-paul-trump-will-negotiate-obamacare-repeal-replacement

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) joined "Fox & Friends" Tuesday to offer his take on the House GOP's health care bill to replace Obamacare, which was released Monday.

Paul said he spoke with President Donald Trump, who according to the senator is open-minded on negotiating the new bill.

Our wonderful new Healthcare Bill is now out for review and negotiation. ObamaCare is a complete and total disaster - is imploding fast!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 7, 2017


"I like the president's statements that it's up for negotiation, and I think those have begun. ... He wants Obamacare repealed like all conservatives do, but he realizes that conservatives have a lot of objections," Paul said.

The new plan would repeal all taxes and subsidies on the current Affordable Care Act and instead offer the same tax breaks to individual workers as the government would to businesses.

>Trump said he would not put the bill on the floor in the coming weeks. He is willing to wait and watch the current law continue and, in his view, encounter problems. And he believes that Democrats will eventually want to work with him on some kind of legislative fix to Obamacare, although he did not say when that would be.

>“As you know, I’ve been saying for years that the best thing is to let Obamacare explode and then go make a deal with the Democrats and have one unified deal. And they will come to us; we won’t have to come to them,” he said. “After Obamacare explodes.”

>“The beauty,” Trump continued, “is that they own Obamacare. So when it explodes, they come to us, and we make one beautiful deal for the people.”

What they'd really do is blame all of the bill's problems on Republicans trying to undermine it, and still not play ball.

Wasn't WaPo one of the news organizations Trump regularly derides? Why did he call them first, did he lose a bet? Oh, wait, I guess he did.

This will no doubt be used to deny employment/health coverage to persons who have genetic markers indicating they've got a 5% chance of developing diabetes or whatever.

>A little-noticed bill moving through Congress would allow companies to require employees to undergo genetic testing or risk paying a penalty of thousands of dollars, and would let employers see that genetic and other health information.

Giving employers such power is now prohibited by legislation including the 2008 genetic privacy and nondiscrimination law known as GINA. The new bill gets around that landmark law by stating explicitly that GINA and other protections do not apply when genetic tests are part of a “workplace wellness” program.

>The bill, HR 1313, was approved by a House committee on Wednesday, with all 22 Republicans supporting it and all 17 Democrats opposed. It has been overshadowed by the debate over the House GOP proposal to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, but the genetic testing bill is expected to be folded into a second ACA-related measure containing a grab-bag of provisions that do not affect federal spending, as the main bill does.

>“What this bill would do is completely take away the protections of existing laws,” said Jennifer Mathis, director of policy and legal advocacy at the Bazelon Center for Mental Health Law, a civil rights group. In particular, privacy and other protections for genetic and health information in GINA and the 1990 Americans with Disabilities Act “would be pretty much eviscerated,” she said.

Actually they'll just be able to adjust policies and give additional coverage according to genetic predisposition, instead of having everyone get a flat coverage.

There's nothing wrong with increasing fairness, and if you have a risk of something it pays off in the long run to know.

And if you're genetically healthy, there's no point in giving you the same level of heart disease coverage as a dude who has a genetic predisposition to it.
