Trump's son-in-law appointed to lead newly created "White House Office of American Innovation" with power over all government agencies. Kushner leads a five member board hand picked from his Wall Street friends (all of whom just happen to be jewish).

>Kushner’s office, just a few feet from the Oval Office, largely barren but for a black-and-white photo of his paternal grandparents — both Holocaust survivors

President Trump plans to unveil a new White House office on Monday with sweeping authority to overhaul the federal bureaucracy and fulfill key campaign promises — such as reforming care for veterans and fighting opioid addiction — by harvesting ideas from the business world and, potentially, privatizing some government functions.

The White House Office of American Innovation, to be led by Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law and senior adviser, will operate as its own nimble power center within the West Wing and will report directly to Trump. Viewed internally as a SWAT team of strategic consultants, the office will be staffed by former business executives and is designed to infuse fresh thinking into Washington, float above the daily political grind and create a lasting legacy for a president still searching for signature achievements.

“All Americans, regardless of their political views, can recognize that government stagnation has hindered our ability to properly function, often creating widespread congestion and leading to cost overruns and delays,” Trump said in a statement to The Washington Post. “I promised the American people I would produce results, and apply my ‘ahead of schedule, under budget’ mentality to the government.”

In a White House riven at times by disorder and competing factions, the innovation office represents an expansion of Kushner’s already far-reaching influence. The 36-year-old former real estate and media executive will continue to wear many hats, driving foreign and domestic policy as well as decisions on presidential personnel. He also is a shadow diplomat, serving as Trump’s lead adviser on relations with China, Mexico, Canada and the Middle East.

The work of White House chief strategist Stephen K. Bannon has drawn considerable attention, especially after his call for the “deconstruction of the administrative state.” But Bannon will have no formal role in the innovation office, which Trump advisers described as an incubator of sleek transformation as opposed to deconstruction.

The announcement of the new office comes at a humbling moment for the president, following Friday’s collapse of his first major legislative push — an overhaul of the health-care system, which Trump had championed as a candidate.

In January 2011, I sent an email to the Washington State Democratic Party asking about precinct results from the 2008 presidential caucus race. State party chairman Jaxon Ravens replied simply with the question, “Why would you want them?” As he reminded me, the precinct results had no bearing on delegate allocation or the eventual party nominee. My nineteen-year-old self struggled to articulate a satisfying answer.

What I failed to put into words was that election results show so much more than simply who won and lost a constitutionally-legitimized popularity contest. Election results lay bare the souls of its voters, translating millions of individual hopes, dreams, fears, aspirations, and biases into tangible, observable quantities. No census or survey can truly capture that singular moment of personal truth which occurs in the ballot box. We can identify your race, your income, a list of a thousand other measurable values which statistically imply the outcome of this moment, but as deterministic as we might try to make it seem, it always comes down to a final act of free will. These individual acts sum to make manifest the inner milieu of a people at a particular moment in time, a secular sacrament ordaining to our political priesthood.

Election results tell us who we are while other statistics only hint at what we are; maps visually organize this information in a way both informative and artful. Living on the West Coast my entire life, I’ve never had the opportunity to travel to many of the great population centers of the East, the veiled gulches and hollows of Appalachia, or the wide open country of the Heartland, but through election maps I could learn many things about the people who live there, how they vary, and how they view themselves. Using precinct-level data, I could almost walk the streets of neighborhoods and communities thousands of miles away.

They made me feel connected to and in solidarity with a world I have never experienced; they remind me that I too am a part of the American democratic experiment, even if it all too often seems a petty game for out-of-touch East Coast elites.

In 2008, I started collecting General Election county data and creating rudimentary maps in MS Paint going back to the 1840s using the University of Richmond’s Voting America application.
I began a project the following year expanding into Presidential Primary Election county data, and I took up learning GIS mapping for my high school culminating project. As an undergraduate, I continued to dabble in GIS, even though I never took a course in the subject, and at the start of the 2012 Republican Presidential Primaries I even briefly toyed with the idea of a national precinct map before realizing the enormity of such a task.

The Most Stunningly Detailed 2016 Election Map Was Just Released—Democrats Should Be Scared, Very Scared

The Trump administration is off to a rocky start, as every week seems to bring new turmoil and drama. However, it is important to remember how shockingly unlikely this presidency was in the first place.
Exhibit A:


Since Trump went from nearly zero chance of becoming Leader of the Free World to launching missiles at our enemies, one is left to ask: what trends led to this fate for Democrats? https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2016/10/24/donald-trumps-chances-of-winning-are-approaching-zero/?utm_term=.9cd7f6cfe0ee

Ryne Rohla at Decision Desk HQ set out to model American voting patterns, https://decisiondeskhq.com/data-dives/creating-a-national-precinct-map/ not just on a national or state level, but by burrowing down to the most localized, nuanced metric available: local precincts. Because of the incredible locality and difficulty of attaining such data, few have ever attempted to map the voting populace in this way. Rohla persisted. He explains in his piece entitled, “Creating a National Precinct Map”: https://decisiondeskhq.com/data-dives/creating-a-national-precinct-map/

Are you people really trying to work yourselves up into a tizzy because the country has uneven population distribution? The country has uneven natural resource distribution also and the population distribution is a natural consequence. Adam Smith wrote about that kind of thing in the first chapter of his famous book, he was particularly keen on waterways because boats can move some much more material with less effort as compared to land vehicles.
Anyway, if the population distribution bothers you then how would you go about fixing it? Some government agency with the authority to relocate people? It might not be a bad idea. Thomas Jefferson, when he imagined future America, he though it was going to be large collection of plantations each owned by a "gentlemen farmer". Sea to sea, nothing but Monticello sized farms with maybe a few small towns here and there. If his constitution was written with that kind of thing in mind, then maybe the country would be better off if we realigned towards that ideal.

FIVE people have been killed after a ‘stolen’ truck mowed down terrified crowds in Stockholm today – sending the city into lock down.

Witnesses claimed that three armed men jumped out of the lorry after it crashed into a department store, with cops fearing the ‘deliberate’ act is a terror attack on Sweden’s capital.

Shots were fired as police hunted the suspects - with the unfolding horror coming just weeks after five innocent victims were killed after a car ploughed through crowds on Westminster Bridge, outside the Houses of Parliament.

Despite reports, police have said no one has been arrested in connected with the attack outside the Ahlens store in Sweden.

Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven said that everything indicated that the crash was a "terror attack".

Local news Expressen reported that the driver of the truck had managed to escape the scene, with witnesses describing a "lone man" put a balaclava over his face before he drove the truck into crowds of people.

The Local has also reported that the Swedish brewery company Spendrups, which owns the truck, said it had been hijacked earlier in the day.

Uzbek, known to police, is suspect in Stockholm truck attack

>Swedish police on Saturday identified the suspected truck driver who killed four people in Stockholm as a 39-year-old man from Uzbekistan, a day after Europe's latest terror attack.

>The suspect was detained on Friday evening in Marsta, a suburb north of Stockholm. According to several media outlets, he is an IS supporter.

>"His Facebook page shows sympathies to IS," the head of the Centre for Asymmetric Threat Studies at the Swedish National Defence College, Magnus Ranstorp, told AFP.

>If the suspect is confirmed as the perpetrator, that would bring to three the number of attacks in less than four months by an assailant believed to have links to Uzbekistan.

Twitter filed a lawsuit Thursday against the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, asking the court to prevent the department from taking steps to unmask the user behind an account critical of the Trump administration.

The tech company said that allowing DHS access to that information would produce a “grave chilling effect on the speech of that account,” as well as other accounts critical of the U.S. government. The case sets up a potential showdown over free speech between Silicon Valley and Washington.

According to Twitter's court filings, Homeland Security is “unlawfully abusing a limited-purpose investigatory tool” to find out who is behind the @ALT_USCIS account. Its Twitter feed has publicly criticized the administration's immigration policies, particularly the actions of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) division of Homeland Security.

[One thing Trump has stopped doing on Twitter since inauguration]

Homeland Security spokeswoman Jenny Burke declined to comment on pending litigation.

Tweets from the @ALT_USCIS account, which is still active, indicate that it is run by someone who claims to be a government employee working at the USCIS. The account's description stresses that its views are “Not the views of DHS or USCIS.” As of the time of the court filing, the account had been active for two months and amassed more than 32,000 followers.

>only a closet case could be trolled this easily

Russia has banned a picture depicting President Vladimir Putin as a potentially gay clown.

Russian news outlets are having trouble reporting exactly which image of the Internet's many Putin-gay-clown memes is now illegal to share. Because, you know, it's been banned.

But the picture was described last week on the Russian government's list of things that constitute “extremism.”

Item 4071: a picture of a Putin-like person “with eyes and lips made up,” captioned with an implicit anti-gay slur, implying “the supposed nonstandard sexual orientation of the president of the Russian Federation.”

The Moscow Times thinks it probably looks like this:

A Russian court has banned an image suggesting Putin is gay & sentenced the culprit to compulsory psychiatric care. https://t.co/rUlOO5r6lp pic.twitter.com/hbkDHcndY5

>As a result, Mr Obama introduced a rule that no strike could take place outside a war zone unless there was a “near certainty” that civilian deaths could be avoided.

I would venture the opposite conclusion, if it was false flag there WOULD be a claim. Do you think the Kremlin can't put a few guys in masks in front of an IS flag and claim the attack?

Battle-hardened Southeast Asian Islamic State (IS) fighters returning from the Middle East following the group’s setbacks are expected to rebase in the southern Philippines, a security conference heard Tuesday.

Instability and the easy flow of weapons have made Mindanao and nearby Philippine islands attractive to extremist groups, said speakers at the Milipol conference on homeland security in Singapore.

“Currently, IS is moving towards creating a territory in southern Philippines. The most recent communication issued by IS has announced that they have formally declared an East Asia division of IS in the southern Philippines,” counter-terrorism analyst Rohan Gunaratna told the conference.

My favorite from the comments section:
