>"President Xi of China, and I, are working together to give massive Chinese phone company, ZTE, a way to get back into business, fast. Too many jobs in China lost. Commerce Department has been instructed to get it done!" Trump wrote on Twitter.

>The Chinese technology company earlier this month suspended its main operations after the U.S. Commerce Department banned American supplies to its business.

oh gee why did ZTE get placed under sanctions?

>In March 2017, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross made the initial announcement of an "unprecedented" $1.19 billion penalty leveled against ZTE for violating U.S sanctions by shipping telecommunications equipment to Iran and North Korea. ZTE, which reached an agreement with the government on the charges, was further accused of lying to investigators and obstructing a probe into their actions.

>Last month, Commerce Department decided to trigger the harshest penalty in the agreement, which was initially suspended in 2017. Because ZTE made additional false statements during the probation period, the department banned American companies from buying or selling the phone maker's products for the next seven years.

>In an April letter setting out the company's actions, the Commerce Department said the phone maker engaged in a "extensive conspiracy," approved by the then-CEO to evade U.S. laws.

>"As a result of the conspiracy, ZTE was able to obtain hundreds of millions of dollars in contracts with and sales from Iranian entities to ship routers, microprocessors. and servers controlled under the Regulations for national security, encryption, regional security, and/or anti-terrorism reasons to Iran," Richard R. Majauskas, acting assistant secretary of commerce for export enforcement, wrote in the April 15 denial order letter to ZTE.

http://www.11alive.com/article/news/local/13investigates-will-lauren-giddings-killer-get-a-new-trial/93-530201238

Four years after he admitted to the murder of his neighbor and Mercer Law classmate Lauren Giddings, Stephen McDaniel will soon get another day in court to explain why he believes he deserves a new trial.

McDaniel filed a Habeas Corpus petition in February stating his constitutional rights were violated during the pre-trial proceedings.

In part, he claims the previous Bibb District Attorney gained access to legal documents McDaniel requested from jail and prosecutors used that information against him in court.

McDaniel also questions the competence of his attorneys for not pursuing this and other issues in court.

"Part of the strength and benefit of a guilty plea is that assurance that it is very unlikely to be undone," said Bibb District Attorney David Cooke.

He says it is extremely unlikely that a judge would grant McDaniel's request given the circumstances surrounding the case.

>According to Mike Minerva, a Tallahassee public defender and member of the defense team, a pre-trial plea bargain was negotiated in which Bundy would plead guilty to killing Levy, Bowman and Leach in exchange for a firm 75-year prison sentence. Prosecutors were amenable to a deal, by one account, because "prospects of losing at trial were very good." Bundy, on the other hand, saw the plea deal not only as a means of avoiding the death penalty, but also as a "tactical move": he could enter his plea, then wait a few years for evidence to disintegrate or become lost and for witnesses to die, move on, or retract their testimony. Once the case against him had deteriorated beyond repair, he could file a post-conviction motion to set aside the plea and secure an acquittal.

Confessed killer in Lauren Giddings dismemberment murder sues lawyer for malpractice
The contentious-yet-tenuous legal wranglings of Stephen McDaniel continue to confound and hassle some of the very people who helped keep him off death row.

A month after graduating from law school in 2011, McDaniel broke into the apartment of Lauren Giddings, his next-door neighbor and Mercer University law school classmate, then strangled her and cut up her body.

In 2014, McDaniel, now 32, pleaded guilty and described in open court his version of how Giddings was slain. Earlier this year, though, in a last-ditch form of appeal that he filed from prison, McDaniel claimed that the police and prosecutors — and his own lawyers — may have wronged him.

Then last Wednesday, on what would have been Giddings’ 34th birthday, McDaniel, in a handwritten civil filing claiming legal malpractice, sued one of his former defense attorneys for upward of $200,000. McDaniel’s lawsuit contends that Macon lawyer Floyd Buford mishandled a wrongful-death lawsuit that Giddings’ parents filed against McDaniel after the killing.

McDaniel, serving a life sentence with the possibility of parole, now claims that Buford settled the wrongful-death claim against McDaniel’s wishes. Under the settlement, McDaniel, should he ever earn any money, would owe the Giddings family up to $80 million.

But McDaniel contends there was an offer to settle, one that Buford ignored, that would have imposed no financial sanctions and required only that McDaniel never earn any money from a book about the murder, if he chose to write one.

Moments before the first shot, James Shaw Jr. was watching a Waffle House employee wash dishes, stacking them higher and higher. When the first shot was fired, Shaw thought the tower of plates had come crashing down, he would later recount at a news conference. At 3:25 a.m. Sunday, police cars stormed toward the restaurant in the Nashville neighborhood of Antioch.

Shaw, 29, had gone to a club with his best friend Saturday night. Afterward, the two went to a Waffle House on Bell Road, but it was crowded, so they drove to the one at 3571 Murfreesboro Pike.
The Metro Nashville Police Department said that the suspect, Travis Reinking, arrived in the Waffle House parking lot at 3:19 a.m. Sunday and sat in his pickup truck for about four minutes staring at the customers inside. Then he got out, wearing only a green jacket and carrying a AR-15 rifle, and fatally shot two people outside the Waffle House, police said. He then went into the restaurant and continued shooting, they said. Two more people would die. The suspect, feared to be armed and wanted for murder, has not been found.

[Waffle House shooting: Authorities seized suspect’s AR-15 after arrest at White House last year]

At the news conference Sunday afternoon, Nashville police spokesman Don Aaron said that as the gunman was shooting, “a patron of the restaurant, James Shaw Jr., ran to the restroom area of the Waffle House, saw that the shooting had stopped, and saw an opportunity to intervene. Mr. Shaw wrestled the rifle away from Reinking and tossed it into another part of the restaurant to end the gunfire. Mr. Shaw saved, obviously, many lives in his heroic action.”

After the third gunshot, the window burst, Shaw said, and Waffle House employees scattered. Looking back, he saw someone lying on the ground at the door. He jumped toward the restroom, he would later tell the Tennessean newspaper, and stood behind a swivel door, where a bullet grazed his arm.

That’s when Shaw decided to act.

“I kind of made up my mind, because there was no way to lock that door, that if it was going to come down to it, he was going to have to work to kill me,” he said.

>But his trade strategy is under fire as a conflict escalates with China.

>Politicians, including some from his own party, are worried that he is leading the US into a damaging economic battle with China, after levying tariffs on steel and aluminium and threatening taxes on billions more in Chinese goods.

>They have said the administration should be working with other countries to pressure China, instead of wielding tariffs that invite retaliation on industries such as agriculture.

>Senator Ben Sasse, a Republican who represents Nebraska and has been sharply critical of the tariffs, said it was "good news" that the president directed top staff, including US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, to negotiate US entry into TPP".

This article is garbage. Here's why:

Research shows that if you aren't a reader by the fourth grade, statistically you won't ever be. I'm curious who OP is posting this article for - an article which is without relevant context and describes nothing of the power relations behind this story. We are in the era of JTRIG- you simply cannot trust what appear to be social concensus cues on the internet anymore to base your opinions on. And since Reddit's top thread re:TPP has all the top comments pushing TPP, lest you not see for yourself what's going on lets get one thing out of the way: TPP is bad.

A full third of the senior Interior Department (DOI) career officials reassigned under Secretary Ryan Zinke in a major agency reshuffling are Native American, even though Native Americans make up less than 10 percent of the Department’s workforce, a review by TPM has found.

The finding comes days after Democratic lawmakers demanded an investigation into whether Zinke discriminated when he reassigned 33 career officials last summer, and follows on reports that Zinke has repeatedly told DOI officials he doesn’t care about diversity — which prompted one member of Congress to accuse Zinke of working to create a “lily-white department.”

The book of Judges 12:4-6
Then Jephthah gathered together all the men of Gilead and fought against Ephraim. The men of Gilead defeated Ephraim, and Gilead seized the fords of the Jordan against Ephraim. When any of the fleeing Ephraimites said, “Let me pass,” the men of Gilead would say to him, “Are you an Ephraimite?” If he answered, “No!” they would ask him to say “Shibboleth.”[a] If he said “Sibboleth,” not pronouncing it exactly right, they would seize him and kill him at the fords of the Jordan. Forty-two thousand Ephraimites fell at that time.

Outside of the bible, one of the most famous example of a Shibboleth occurred in WWII. If a "lost" American or British soldier suddenly appeared out of the woods, he would be asked to pronounce the word squirrel. It's near impossible for native German speakers to say.

Outside of conflict and linguistic difference, a shibboleth may be a cultural touchstone or group shared experience that is used to identify insiders and outsiders. I'm sure everyone here has seen this in stolen honor videos or accounts. (What's your MOS? What's the order of precedence for medals?

http://www.philly.com/philly/blogs/inq-phillydeals/gunmaker-remington-faces-default-as-americans-buy-fewer-firearms-20171117.html

Remington Outdoor, the second-largest U.S. gunmaker has suffered a “rapid” and “sharp” deterioration in sales and a similar drop in profits since January, and faces “continued softness in consumer demand for firearms,” credit analysts at Standard & Poor’s Global Ratings said in a report Friday.

S&P as a result has cut the company’s corporate credit rating — already at a junk-bond-level CCC+ — two full notches, to CCC-, a move likely to make the company’s high-yield debt less attractive to investors and lenders, and force Remington to pay more in interest. The company could face a change in control, bankruptcy, or default on its debt by next year.

A backlog of unsold, unwanted firearms will force Remington to operate at a loss and “pressure the company’s sales and profitability at least through early 2018, resulting in insufficient cash flow for debt service and fixed charges,” unless Remington gives up cash to pay for ongoing operations, S&P adds.

S&P expects “a heightened risk of a restructuring” of Remington’s $575 million senior secured loan and asset-based lending facility, which it is supposed to pay back in 2019.

If Remington defaults on its payments, based on the company’s current value, S&P expects first-lien creditors may receive around 35 cents back from every dollar they have lent or invested. Lower-rated creditors would get back less, or nothing.

Default is not yet “a virtual certainty,” the report added.

Gun companies knew the market would crash eventually. They had 8 plus years of the gravy train making them higher and higher profits, they could not build weapons and ammo fast enough.

Now in glorious Emperor Trump's America panic buying has went down considerably. Some people are sometimes sitting on piles of weapons they bought during the panic that they may not be able to sell for the wild profits. Even the bumps when Kim Jong Un starting really doing his shit hard and the Vegas shooting were probably nowhere near enough to make up for lost profits. I bet they are kicking themselves for not supporting Hillary under the table, the sheer amounts of profits they'd be making would be ridiculous.

Any guns people are going to be buying now are not going to be some shitty crap that Remington puts out, like that Phaser looking pistol that had to be recalled, but higher quality shit considering they are actually planning on using it rather then reselling it to suckers on gun broker.

Innovate or die. Or get a Democrat president elected.
