But but but but but RT assured us that Hillary would be the one who started a war with Russia!

https://www.cnn.com/2018/02/07/politics/us-strikes-pro-regime-forces-syria/index.html
>The US-led coalition fighting ISIS in Syria conducted strikes against pro-regime forces in Syria Wednesday, the coalition said in a statement.

>The coalition said the strikes were carried out after forces allied to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad "initiated an unprovoked attack" against a well-established Syrian Democratic Forces headquarters where coalition advisers were working with US-backed Syrian fighters.

>A US official told CNN that the attackers crossed the Euphrates River and were armed with artillery and other weapons. The US official said that US forces in the region counterattacked using artillery and aircraft.

>The official added that no US personnel were killed or wounded in the engagement.

>The official added that it was unclear exactly who the pro-regime forces were but the US is looking into whether Russian contractors operating in the vicinity might have been involved but added that there is no direct evidence yet that the Russians fired on the Syrian Democratic Forces facility where the US advisers were located. The official said they have not ruled out that Iranian backed-forces might have also been involved in the attack.

>"In defense of coalition and partner forces, the coalition conducted strikes against attacking forces to repel the act of aggression against partners engaged in the Global Coalition's defeat-Daesh mission," the coalition statement said, using the Arabic acronym for ISIS.

  Oh, isn't that a beautiful example. The observations on a site in Aleppo where the Al Nusra terrorist groups organized their hospitals. You can observe a similar picture everywhere in the rest of Syria where the government forces were fighting "democratic" insurgents.

Too bad Raqqa isn't given such attention at all - it was just bombed to dust by coalition and nobody even goes there any more. It's not controlled by government force, nor by American coalition, and may as well end up as another point of insurrection.

https://edition.cnn.com/2018/06/05/middleeast/us-led-coalition-raqqa-war-crimes-intl/index.html

>Airstrikes by the US-led coalition in Raqqa, Syria, probably breached international humanitarian law and potentially amount to war crimes, according to a report by Amnesty International that is being hotly contested by the Pentagon.

>The rights group accuses the coalition of killing and injuring thousands of civilians in attacks that were at times "disproportionate or indiscriminate," during its offensive to flush ISIS militants from their de facto capital.

>"The coalition's claims that its precision air campaign allowed it to bomb (ISIS) out of Raqqa while causing very few civilian casualties do not stand up to scrutiny," said Amnesty's senior crisis response adviser, Donatella Rovera.

Welcome to Trump's Internet!
https://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2018/07/comcast-starts-throttling-mobile-video-will-charge-extra-for-hd-streams/

>Comcast has been telling Xfinity Mobile customers about the changes in an email titled, "Update on cellular video resolution and personal hotspots." One Comcast customer forwarded the email to Ars, and there's also a Reddit thread discussing the email. All Xfinity Mobile customers are receiving this email, Comcast confirmed to Ars.

"To help you conserve data, we've established 480p as the standard resolution for streaming video through cellular data," Comcast told customers. For now, customers can contact Comcast for an "upgrade" to 720p video "on an interim basis at no charge."

>But after the interim period is over, getting HD-quality video will cost extra. "Later this year, 720p video over cellular data will be available as a fee-based option with your service," Comcast told customers. Comcast hasn't mentioned any plans to make 1080p or any resolution higher than 720p available over cellular, and there's no word from Comcast yet on what enabling 720p video will cost. Comcast previously imposed no speed limits on video streaming on the Xfinity Mobile service.

[...]

>"If you have the Unlimited data option, your speeds on any device connected to a personal hotspot will not exceed 600kbps," Comcast told customers. Xfinity Mobile users can get 4G hotspot speeds by switching to Comcast's "By the Gig" pricing.

>By the Gig customers pay $12 for each gigabyte of usage. The unlimited plan costs $45 a line each month, and it's unlimited in the sense that there are no overage fees for using too much data. But the unlimited plan only provides 20GB of full-speed data each month—after 20GB, the plan is limited to 1.5Mbps downstream and 750kbps upstream at all times. This limitation was already in place when Comcast started offering mobile service last year.

The US used to love personal responsibility, freedom, morality, peace, and balanced budgets.

Americans are now embracing welfare, tyranny, immorality, war, and debt.

Some Americans are not adjusting well to the changes and the hypocrisy.

You just need to go outside to see the insanity. Have you noticed the panhandlers, the illegal immigrants, the cashier high on drugs, a black man using his fingers while pretending to shoot you, the homosexual in the gym shower leering at you, the white man spitting, the fat girl wearing pajamas at the supermarket, and the old lady driving slow on purpose in the parking lot talking to herself?

People living in the US would think this was normal, but Americans don't realize how far the USA has fallen until they travel abroad.

Being a fat, tattooed single mother in Vietnam would be shameful.

So we've all heard the news (and seen that youtube music video), but what will a "Space Force" actually look like?
Will it wear the same, or similar uniform to the Air Force, with similar rank structure? Will it follow Naval rank structure like the fictional Starfleet and UNSC? Will they have their own rockets, or piggyback everything on NASA rockets? What will be the extent of their capability?

The average hourly wage paid to a key group of American workers has fallen from last year when accounting for inflation, as an economy that appears strong by several measures continues to fail to create bigger paychecks, the federal government said Tuesday.

For workers in “production and nonsupervisory” positions, the value of the average paycheck has declined in the past year. For those workers, average “real wages” — a measure of pay that takes inflation into account — fell from $22.62 in May 2017 to $22.59 in May 2018, the Bureau of Labor Statistics said.

This pool of workers includes those in manufacturing and construction jobs, as well as all “nonsupervisory” workers in service industries such health care or fast food. The group accounts for about four-fifths of the privately employed workers in America, according to BLS.

Without adjusting for inflation, these “nonsupervisory” workers saw their average hourly earnings jump 2.8 percent from last year. But that was not enough to keep pace with the 2.9 percent increase in inflation, which economists attributed to rising gas prices.

“This is very likely because of the spike in oil prices eating into inflation-adjusted earnings,” said Allen Sinai, chief global economist and strategist at Decision Economics. “We pay for energy-related costs out of our wages, out of our compensation. And it's making a real impact.”

The fall in those wages has alarmed some economists, who say paychecks should be getting fatter at a time when unemployment is low and businesses are hiring.

“This is odd and remarkable,” said Steven Kyle, an economist at Cornell University. “You would not normally see this kind of thing unless there were some kind of external shock, like a bad hurricane season, but we haven't had that.”

>Dimitrios Pagourtzis, the suspected gunman who opened fire at a Texas high school on Friday morning, apparently posted photos of neo-Nazi iconography online, according to social media accounts flagged by classmates and reviewed by The Daily Beast.

>Pagourtzis, 17, was booked into Galveston County Jail for capital murder on Friday. He allegedly killed 10 people at Santa Fe High School, where he was a student. Explosive devices were left inside the school near Houston, authorities said. Pagourtzis reportedly had an assault-style rifle, shotgun, and pistol.

>Texas Gov. Greg Abbott told reporters that Pagourtzis said in journals he wanted to kill himself after the shooting. Instead, he surrendered to police.

>Before his arrest was announced, two Santa Fe students also told The Daily Beast that Pagourtzis was the gunman and they confirmed a Facebook account with Pagourtzis’ name belonged to him. Attempts by The Daily Beast to reach Pagourtzis’ family were unsuccessful.

>On April 30, Pagourtzis apparently posted a t-shirt with “born to kill” printed on the front, boasting that it was custom-made.

>That same day, Pagourtzis posted multiple pictures of a duster jacket emblazoned with a variety of symbols including the Iron Cross, a German military award last given by the Nazis, and a hammer and sickle. He said he equated the Iron Cross with “bravery,” and the hammer and sickle with “rebellion.”

>The man, whose name has been redacted, gave a jailhouse interview in November saying he met up with Paddock outside a sporting goods store after posting an online ad to sell schematics to convert semi-automatic guns to fire automatically.

>"Somebody has to wake up the American public and get them to arm themselves," the man said Paddock told him less than a month before the Oct. 1 shooting that killed 58 people and injured hundreds. "Sometimes sacrifices have to be made."

>Paddock also ranted about "camps" the Federal Emergency Management Agency set up after Hurricane Katrina, which he claimed were a "dry run for law enforcement and military to start kickin' down doors and … confiscating guns."

>In a handwritten account, a woman said she overheard a man she believes to be Paddock talking with another man at a Las Vegas restaurant just three days before the massacre. She told police that Paddock seemed angry about the 1990s standoffs at Waco, Texas, and Ruby Ridge in Idaho.

>"At the time, I just thought 'strange guys' and I wanted to leave," said the woman.

>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.
