Plumbing the Depths of Liberal Progressive Stupidity

Exclusive: Manchester suicide bomber used student loan and benefits to fund terror plot



Salman Abedi received thousands of pounds in student loans

Telegraph

The Manchester suicide bomber used taxpayer-funded student loans and benefits to bankroll the terror plot, police believe.

Salman Abedi is understood to have received thousands of pounds in state funding in the run up to Monday’s atrocity even while he was overseas receiving bomb-making training.

Police are investigating Abedi’s finances, including how he paid for frequent trips to Libya where he is thought to have been taught to make bombs at a jihadist training camp.

It comes as Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley, Britain’s most senior counter-terrorism officer, said detectives had made “immense progress” in dismantling Abedi’s terror network.


Abedi rented a flat in this apartment block on the eve of the attack
In further developments, a barber shop in Manchester was raided with one theory that Abedi may have obtained hydrogen peroxide - a chemical used in the hairdressing industry but which can also be used to construct bombs - from the salon.

Abedi’s finances are a major ‘theme’ of the police inquiry amid growing alarm over the ease with which jihadists are able to manipulate Britain’s welfare and student loans system to secure financing.

One former detective said jihadists were enrolling on university courses to collect the student loans “often with no intention of turning up”.

Abedi was given at least £7,000 from the taxpayer-funded Student Loans Company after beginning a business administration degree at Salford University in October 2015. 

It is thought he received a further £7,000 in the 2016 academic year even though by then he had already dropped out of the course. Salford University declined to say if it had informed the Student Loans Company that Abedi’s funding should have been stopped.

Separately, the Department for Work and Pensions refused to say if Abedi had received any benefits, including housing benefit and income support worth up to £250 a week, during 2015 and 2016. It would only say he was not claiming benefits in the weeks before the attack.

Abedi, 22, never held down a job, according to neighbours and friends, but was able to travel regularly between the UK and Libya.

Abedi also had sufficient funds to buy materials for his sophisticated bomb while living in a rented house in south Manchester.

Six weeks before the bombing Abedi rented a second property in a block of flats in Blackley eight miles from his home, paying £700 in cash.

He had enough money to rent a third property in the centre of Manchester from where he set off with a backpack containing the bomb.

Abedi also withdrew £250 in cash three days before the attack and transferred £2,500 to his younger brother Hashim in Libya, who is accused of knowing about the attack in advance.

A Student Loans Company spokesman said: “It would not be appropriate for the Student Loans Company to respond to media requests for information that may be relevant to the ongoing police investigation.

“It is for universities to inform the Student Loans Company when students withdraw or suspend their studies, at which point funding stops.”

A Salford university spokesman, asked if it had told the SLC Abedi had dropped out, said: “We cannot comment.”

David Videcette, a former Metropolitan police detective who worked on the 7/7 London bombing investigation, said of the student loans’ system: “It is an easy way for a terrorist to move forward and finance their activities at the expense of the taxpayer. 

“All you have got to do is get yourself into university and then off you go. Often they have go no intention of turning up.”

Professor Anthony Glees, director of Buckingham University’s Centre for Security and Intelligence Studies, said: “The British system makes funds readily available to jihadist students without checks on them. There needs to be an inquiry into this.”

The Government has previously admitted it has no idea how many terrorists could be using taxpayer funded benefits and student loans to finance their activities.

Two men were convicted at the end of 2016 of channelling thousands of pounds of fraudulent housing benefits to the Islamist fanatics behind the Paris and Brussels terrorist outrages.

Mohamed Abrini, the Brussels terror suspect dubbed the ‘Man in the Hat’ received £3,000 in fraudulent housing benefit.

    * Libya was never our problem - Obama & Clinton & Bush should be held accountable - All three of them guilty in deed way more so than the imaginary Trump- Russia fantasy

    Build safe cities in Libya, using Libyan oil money and relocate these people, all of them to where they belong.

    If you need to dress, worship and live like a Libyan muslim, Libya is where you belong, not in the UK, not in Poland or Germany or the USA.

    3. Cultural change does not happen by pledging allegiance. It is a multi-generational evolution. It can be handled in small proportions, slowly and gradually.

      We have a country, a language and relatively benign religions. That is our reality. That is our way. They are "they" because they want to be. That is their human right. Where they want to be other than their own country it is not a right.

      it is a privilege when it is in another country and it is a defensible obligation of the cultural norm majority to defend their position.

      Muti-culturalism gets a solid unambiguous F. It is the Edsel of social engineers. Scrap it. If the progressives can't contain them selves about it too bad. They are welcome to go or do what they like as long as it does not take what the native majority want.

      We had one 911 with 19 hijackers. We didn't;'t stand for it and made terrible decisions in its aftermath. disastrous decisions. We will be paying for them for long time. We do not need a cultural hijacking from the US Progressives and their media trollops. We can stop it. it should be stopped.

      We do not need any immigration from anywhere until we digest the grotesque disruptions self-inflicted sine the murdering rapist, Ted Kennedy so disrupted American society. A two generational moratorium would resolve a lot of issues.

      enough is enough.

  7. BACKGROUND
    from
    Alternet

    The heinous suicide bombing by British-born Salman Abedi of an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester was not merely the work of an “evil loser,” as Donald Trump called it. It was blowback from interventionist policies carried out in the name of human rights and “civilian protection.” Through wars of regime change and the arming and training of Islamist proxy groups, the US, UK and France played out imperial delusions across the Middle East. In Syria and Libya, they cultivated the perfect petri dish for jihadist insurgency, helping to spawn weaponized nihilists like Abedi intent on bringing the West’s wars back home.

    The son of anti-Qaddafi immigrants to the UK, Abedi grew up in Manchester’s community of Libyan exiles. A report in the London Telegraph indicated that he had traveled just weeks before his attack to Libya, where Salafi-jihadi militias are competing for control of the destabilized country. Abedi had also reportedly traveled to Syria to join up with the extremist rebels that have waged a six-year-long insurgency against the country’s government, with billions of dollars in assistance from the West and its Gulf allies. According to French Interior Minister Gerard Collomb, it was in these conflict zones where Abedi was radicalized.

      The impressionable 22-year-old returned to the UK with enough training to make a fairly sophisticated bomb that massacred 22 concert goers, many of them children. “It seems likely — possible — that he wasn’t doing this on his own,” Britain’s home secretary, Amber Rudd, told the BBC. She described the bomb as “more sophisticated than some of the attacks we’ve seen before.”

      According to the Telegraph, “A group of Gaddafi dissidents, who were members of the outlawed Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG), lived within close proximity to Abedi in Whalley Range.” They included Abd al-Baset Azzouz, an expert bomb maker who controls an Al Qaeda-affiliated militia in eastern Libya.

      When the uprising against Gaddafi began in 2011, Ramadan Abedi, the father of Salem, returned to his home country to fight with the LIFG. He was part of the rat line operated by the MI5, which hustled anti-Qaddafi Libyan exiles to the front lines of the war.

      “I was allowed to go [to Libya], no questions asked,” a British Libyan who had been under house arrest at the time for ties to extremist groups, told Middle East Eye.

      While it is not known if Salman Abedi himself was involved with the LIFG, the group’s links to British and American intelligence are well established, and go back decades.

      A FAILED STATE, COURTESY OF NATO

      Almost six years after Moamar Qaddafi was sodomized to death with a bayonet in the streets of his hometown of Sirte by Western-backed rebels operating under NATO air cover, then left to rot in a butcher shop in Misrata, his most dire warnings have come true.

      1. Libya today is a failed state, its public coffers and oil reserves looted by the foreign powers that oversaw the war of regime change in 2011

      2. Its shores are a main disembarkation point for migrants, where women fleeing conflict and poverty in sub-Saharan Africa are beaten, raped and starved in “living hellholes,” according to UNICEF.

      3. The United Nations International Organization for Migration has recorded testimony of open air slave markets in Libya where migrants from West Africa are bought and sold

      4. The refugee crisis has propelled the rise of the far-right in Europe, fueling the demagogic politics of figures from Nigel Farage to Marine Le Pen that blame the victims of the West’s catastrophic interventions.

      5. While Belhaj has emerged as a powerbroker of the “free” Libya, leading the Islamist al-Watan Party and operating his own private media empire with backing from Qatar, Libya has been overrun by warlords affiliated with jihadist groups like the Islamic State and Ansar al-Sharia, the Al Qaeda affiliate that participated in the notorious 2012 attack on the US consulate in Benghazi.

      6. Salem Abedi’s younger brother, Hashem, is a member of the Islamic State, according to a rival militia, and helped plan the Manchester attack from inside Libya.

      The British Foreign Affairs Committee report released in September 2016 on the Libyan intervention concluded that, “Intelligence on the extent to which extremist militant Islamist elements were involved in the anti-Gaddafi rebellion was inadequate.”

      Its authors added, “The possibility that militant extremist groups would attempt to benefit from the rebellion should not have been the preserve of hindsight. Libyan connections with transnational militant extremist groups were known before 2011, because many Libyans had participated in the Iraq insurgency and in Afghanistan with al-Qaeda.”

Yet, when the government fails in their promises and comes back with more excuses and asks (if they bother to ask) for more power at the expense of individual rights, these pansies from the boonies of Idaho, and Maui, and Kansas (good lord) drop their pants and say, "Thank you, sir, may I have another?"

      Why must I also comment on the carnage caused in Europe when it is the common meme here covered in excruciating detail? What more could I add. Do you see me supporting any of those actions, defending them, rationalizing them?

      I am more concerned with the US and how the actions affect me and mine.

      Once again, I'm asking you, no demanding from you, show me one instance, where I have offered a positive comment on or promotion of the Muslim religion or sharia. If you can't do that, just shut the fuck up. What I have offered is an appeal to reason, a defense of American laws, of every American’s rights under the constitution, and an appeal to American ideals as talked of in our constitution not the bigoted, perverse version you dicks offer.


      You guys piss and moan from the boondocks of Idaho and the tourist trap that is Maui arguing the American experience is the same as that of Europe. You offer up comments based on fear, and bigotry, and ignorance about American Muslims, all American Muslims. You and your ilk talk about religion. I, having worked in the middle of the largest concentration of Muslims in the US for much of my adult life, speak from experience about American citizens and the rights they have as such.

      Relocate them to another country.

      Some kind of irrational dream? Surely not serious? Who the hell knows in this joint?

      Relocating an entire population? Sure, it’s against international law, but what the hell, America is exceptional, we write the rules. It occurs to me there was someone here who condemned that practice in the past in another context?

      The idea assumes the Almaric rule, in this case, 'deport them all and let the devil sort out his own.' The fact that this dark dream is also an impossible one, well...when has that ever stopped anything around here?

      We have a country, a language and relatively benign religions. That is our reality. That is our way. They are "they" because they want to be.

      Doug and Deuce, living the American dream, bemoan the potential loss of American 'culture'.

      News boys, that ship has already sailed, something many would applaud given the racist and discriminatory laws, policies, and attitudes that were widespread in the 'good old days'.

      As for the social changes we have seen, the growth in political correctness, the entitlement bred into our children, the elitism that permeates our media, hell, that didn't happen due to foreign influence. We have met the enemy and he is us. We, most here, personally helped conceive it and witnessed it's birth in the 60's, in the revolt of the 'me' generation and in the materialism and liberal attitudes they passed along to their kids.

      But why not talk about and underlying reason for the complaints, the loss of white-privileged good old days of the 50’s, certainly not among the rich who still retain all the perks but among the masses. I know this crowd would rather piss and moan and emote than to think but look at the numbers. Look at the trends and demographics. Look at birth rates. Reality will eventually always intrude.

      If you wanted to maintain what is now past, you should have stopped getting vasectomies. You should have bought more Viagra and stopped shooting blanks. You should have listened to the existential imperative: breed.

      Other groups in the US, black, yellow and brown, are also seeing drops in birth rates, but not to the extent of whites, a group that is already the minority in the country when compared to the rest.

      Sure, it’s easy to see the appeal for guys already ‘living the dream’ to insist that the ‘other’, the "they" be kept out so as not to dilute the pot. However, given the demographics and birth rates, the dream is silly. Not only is it impossible, it is the way of the dodo.

      What really pisses me off is that these ‘defenders of the American way’, of mom and apple pie, these real American heroes willingly and with little complaint accept the steady encroachments of their rights and liberties by an ever expanding security state that grows by spreading fear and promoting the illusion that the $ billions they spend every year on intelligence and surveillance of the American public appreciably increases our safety.

    Terror: The Consequence of Apathy


    Brigitte Gabriel, Breitbart


    Equally infuriating to a radical Islamist killing innocent children at a pop concert
    in Manchester, is the very likely possibility that it will not be the last time.

    We’ve seen this tragic routine before: a radical Islamist wages violent Jihad
    against the Western world and, after a few days of cliché sloganeering and useless
    hashtags, all is forgotten.

    Well, for the parents and loved ones of those who were killed, all is not forgotten.
    They will live forever with a hole in their hearts that can never be filled.

    These are the consequences of open borders, and the willingness of a society to bury
    its head in the sand while attempting to shame and silence anyone who dares speak
    the truth.

    The truth is this: when you flood your country with millions of un-vetted migrants
    from the Islamic world, you shouldn’t be “shocked” when your society acquires the
    same problems as the Islamic world. One plus one equals two.

    We can have borders, or we can have terror. No, there is no third option. This is
    the real world, not a sociology lecture, or CNN.

    You cannot force Islamists to assimilate because Islamists do not value the same
    things we do in the West.

    While most in the West view an Ariana Grande concert as an opportunity for young
    girls to have a fun night of singing and dancing with their friends, many in the
    Islamic world views it as a shameful display of dirty infidels, who deserve death
    for their indulgence.

    Manchester bomber Salman Abedi’s parents were Libyan “refugees.” He was given refuge
    and even tax dollars of the very parents whose daughters he killed.

    Jihadists are not impressed by Katy Perry’s almost instantaneous call for “no
    borders” and “co-existence” in response to the Manchester massacre. They are
    emboldened by it.

    She, and every other pompously ignorant celebrity like her, are worse than useless.
    They are useful for our enemies. This pacifistic, “let’s all hold hands” reaction to
    the death of innocent children perfectly encapsulates why the West remains a giant
    sitting duck for radical Islamists. Imagine the disbelief our enemies must be
    feeling about how easy it is to wage war on a society that seeks to fight them with
    tolerance.

    Even after one of their caliphate soldiers bombs a teenage pop concert, one of the
    most popular singers on the planet welcomes more Islamists to our shores with open
    arms.

    But we shouldn’t make Katy Perry feel like the lone wolf in her suicidal delusions.
    After all, we’re only 6 months removed from a kumbaya President that fought ISIS
    with a live serenade of “You’ve Got a Friend” by James Taylor.

    While I, like most Americans, fear another deadly Islamic terror attack, the
    mainstream media’s biggest concern is – that’s right, you guessed it –
    “Islamophobia.”

    Martha Raddatz, who gained notoriety for her appallingly biased Presidential debate
    moderation, lamented to George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s Good Morning America, “This
    is likely to fuel anti-Islamic backlash across Britain, across Europe.”

    1. Don’t worry Martha, chances are there will still be plenty of niqabs worn in
      Manchester long after the carnage of young children is removed from the concert
      venue, and we have open border propagandists to thank for that.

      Unfortunately, for those who actually want to protect ourselves and our children
      from Jihadists, nitwitted celebrities and media pundits aren’t the only problem.

      Anti-American groups like the SPLC and ACLU have volunteered themselves to be useful
      idiots for radical Islamic outfits like CAIR, a notorious Muslim Brotherhood front
      group that has been declared a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates
      and named by federal prosecutors as an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas-funding
      operation.

      Their strategy? To smear, intimidate, bully, and ultimately silence anyone who gets
      in the way of their anti-Western agenda. They are counting on patriotic Americans to
      stay silent and seated, while their anti-American agenda marches on.

      Are we really going to let these open borders fanatics do to America what they’ve
      done to Europe? Are we really going to allow terrorist attacks to become the norm in
      America, as they are the in the Islamic world and, increasingly, Europe?

      Let the goons at the SPLC and the mainstream media call me what they want, I know
      what I am. I am an American who loves her country, and doesn’t want to see it
      diminished to the same rubble I laid under when Islamists blew up my home as a

  18. New revelations have surfaced that the Obama administration abused intelligence during the election by launching a massive domestic-spy campaign that included snooping on Trump officials.

    The irony is mind-boggling: Targeting political opposition is long a technique of police states like Russia, which Team Obama has loudly condemned for allegedly using its own intelligence agencies to hack into our election.

    The revelations, as well as testimony this week from former Obama intel officials, show the extent to which the Obama administration politicized and weaponized intelligence against Americans.

    Thanks to Circa News, we now know the National Security Agency under President Barack Obama routinely violated privacy protections while snooping through foreign intercepts involving US citizens — and failed to disclose the breaches, prompting the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court a month before the election to rebuke administration officials.

    The story concerns what’s known as “upstream” data collection under Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, under which the NSA looks at the content of electronic communication. Upstream refers to intel scooped up about third parties: Person A sends Person B an e-mail mentioning Person C. Though Person C isn’t a party to the e-mail, his information will be scooped up and potentially used by the NSA.

    Further, the number of NSA data searches about Americans mushroomed after Obama loosened rules for protecting such identities from government officials and thus the reporters they talk to.

    The FISA court called it a “very serious Fourth Amendment issue” that NSA analysts — in violation of a 2011 rule change prohibiting officials from searching Americans’ information without a warrant — “had been conducting such queries in violation of that prohibition, with much greater frequency than had been previously disclosed to the Court.”

    A number of those searches were made from the White House, and included private citizens working for the Trump campaign, some of whose identities were leaked to the media. The revelations earned a stern rebuke from the ACLU and from civil-liberties champion Sen. Rand Paul.

    We also learned this week that Obama intelligence officials really had no good reason attaching a summary of a dossier on Trump to a highly classified Russia briefing they gave to Obama just weeks before Trump took office.

  22. Meanwhile down in Venezuela (BernieLand) -

    With all that farmland, why are Venezuelans starving?
    POSTED AT 8:31 AM ON MAY 27, 2017 BY JAZZ SHAW


    With all of the unrest, riots and murders in Venezuela these days, it’s easy to overlook one very basic question about the abysmal conditions its citizens are enduring. Venezuela has some of the richest farmland in the western hemisphere and was a net exporter of agricultural products until very recently. How can the people be starving?

    That’s the question being tackled at the Washington Post this week and the answer comes down to a single source: it’s the socialism, stupid.

    At a time of empty supermarkets and spreading hunger, the country’s farms are producing less and less, not more, making the caloric deficit even worse.

    Drive around the countryside outside the capital, Caracas, and there’s everything a farmer needs: fertile land, water, sunshine and gasoline at 4 cents a gallon, cheapest in the world. Yet somehow families here are just as scrawny-looking as the city-dwelling Venezuelans waiting in bread lines or picking through garbage for scraps.

    Having attempted for years to defy conventional economics, the country now faces a painful reckoning with basic arithmetic.

    “Last year I had 200,000 hens,” said Saulo Escobar, who runs a poultry and hog farm here in the state of Aragua, an hour outside Caracas. “Now I have 70,000.”

    The case of Escobar’s chicken farm is only one of thousands of such examples, but it’s an excellent one to describe the problems the farmers are facing. He had a ranch with nearly a quarter million hens in a country where people are starving to death. That would mean the opportunity of a lifetime in any free portion of the world. But the socialist regime in Venezuela has taken charge of every aspect of the food production and distribution supply chain. They determine how much Escobar will be paid for his eggs and it turns out to be a net loss for him rather than a profit. Unable to buy sufficient amounts of feed and new chicks to raise, Escobar’s farm is withering and will soon be gone.

    That basic reality would be enough to put the farmer out of business eventually all by itself, but Escobar faces other problems as well. He’s been raided and extorted by both armed criminal gangs and government troops. They’re not paying anything for eggs or chickens… just taking them. And nobody from the government is protecting him. These are the hallmarks of socialism, particularly in its final throes. Insufficient law enforcement resources to protect the people and corrupt government and military leaders who roam the land taking what they want for themselves. So in a place completely capable of producing more than enough food for its citizens and their neighbors as well, farms are underutilized or sitting vacant, producing nothing.

    The cause of the starvation is obvious. Even under the most benevolent of socialist regimes, the government is ill equipped to operate such a complex system. And this one is far from benevolent, with the party leaders more interested in ensuring their own comfort and security than that of the rank and file. But all of this was predictable because, as we’ve said here more times than I can count, this is how socialism ends. Every. Single. Time.

  23. Criminal charges for Tim Kaine’s son over violent assault on Trump rally
    POSTED AT 10:01 AM ON MAY 27, 2017 BY JAZZ SHAW

    What’s more surprising about this story… that the alleged crime was charged in the first place or that you’re hearing about it at all?

    On March 4th in St. Paul, Minnesota, a pro-Trump rally took place on the steps of the State Capitol rotunda. No sooner had the event gotten underway than liberal “counter-protesters” wearing masks showed up and began attacking the rally participants with mace, tasers, fireworks and fists. We’ve seen these tactics of violence and intimidation by the Left at Berkeley, in New York City and too many other places to list here, so the incident itself sadly isn’t all that shocking anymore. But this one came with a twist. One of the attackers was none other than the son of former Vice Presidential candidate Tim Kaine.

    Initially, local authorities weren’t even going to bring any charges against the rioters, but after considerable public scrutiny they’ve changed their minds. (local Fox News coverage)

    Prosecutors are filing criminal charges against 8 counter-protesters who disrupted the “March 4 Trump” rally at the Minnesota State Capitol on March 4. Among those charged is Linwood Kaine, the son of former Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine…

    The permitted rally inside the Capitol Rotunda was interrupted by protesters that Saturday, some of whom turned violent. A group of Trump supporters described the scene to Fox 9.

    “They brought in pepper spray and tasers, and went after anyone with a Trump sign,” said Sandra Trater, a supporter of President Trump.

    Unfortunately, most of the charges likely won’t result in too much punishment, being primarily gross misdemeanor counts rather than felony assault. Kaine’s son Linwood has only been charged with the more benign sounding counts of fleeing on foot, concealing identity in a public place and obstructing the legal process. But he was definitely part of the group that was attacking and not one of the “peaceful counter-protesters” as they are being described in many media outlets.

    For his part, Tim Kaine seems to have a little trouble understanding basic English these days. (Emphasis added)

    Following his son’s arrest, Sen. Kaine released a statement: “We love that our three children have their own views and concerns about current political issues. They fully understand the responsibility to express those concerns peacefully.”

    So you think that “peacefully” includes concepts such as mace, tasers, bottle rockets and beating people down.

    When I heard this story initially, I predicted on Twitter that you weren’t going to see it surface in the MSM. Let’s face it… it goes against every narrative they are trying to project. The liberals were the ones engaging in violence, not the generic “Trump supporters” they love to blame. And having the child of someone as far up the DNC pecking order as Tim Kaine is just an embarrassment. But to their credit, I actually saw the story mentioned a couple of times on CNN this morning, so credit where credit is due.

    But aside from that, the coverage has been muted at best outside of conservative social media circles. And you can have no doubt that if Linwood’s last name had been Trump or Bush or that of any other prominent Republican (instead of a high profile Democrat) it would be front page fodder for weeks to come. But getting one more example of how the Left is perpetrating violence as part of the #RESIST movement out into the public eye is better than nothing, I suppose.

    Swamp Draining: More on Waters of the United States Rule
    By Dale Leuck


    ....In response to the apparent intrusion upon state responsibilities and landowner rights, the Trump administration issued on Feb. 28, its Executive Order directing the EPA and ACE to review the WOTUS rule, and all associated “…orders, rules, regulations, guidelines, or policies implementing or enforcing the final rule…” for the purpose of revising it or rescinding it. The purpose of the Executive Order was to insure “…that the Nation's navigable waters are kept free from pollution, while at the same time promoting economic growth, minimizing regulatory uncertainty, and showing due regard for the roles of the Congress and the States under the Constitution.” On March 6, the EPA and ACE published a notice in Federal Register of “…their intention to review that rule, and provide advanced notice of a forthcoming proposed rulemaking consistent with the Executive Order.”

    While it appears the WOTUS shall eventually be rolled back, Mr. Duarte has still his legal battles. His plight was noted in a May 25 joint press release by House Agriculture Committee, Chairman Michael Conaway (TX-11) and House Judiciary committee Chairman, Bob Goodlatte (VA-6), in which they issued a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions, calling for a review of the former Obama Department of Justice (DOJ) to prosecute the case against Mr. Duarte. In the letter, they note that DOJ’s actions are not consistent with legislative intent, and pose questions pertaining to whether such regulatory overreach needs to be corrected through legislative actions. The latter could include: amendments to the Clean Water Act; standalone legislation targeting implementation of WOTUS; appropriation bill limitations.

    Rollback of the WOTUS may not spare Mr. Duarte significant legal and other costs, but he may recoup these through his own lawsuit, a related waste of taxpayer’s money caused by political malfeasance.

    Draining swamps are always costly but necessary endeavors.

    The mother of Martyn Hett, who was one of 22 people killed in a bombing at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester on Monday, has said she will not invest time in feeling hate towards the attacker.

    "I have no feelings of hate and anger at all because I don’t think this person deserves any of those emotions that I should invest in," Hett's mother, Figen Murray, said in an interview with BBC North West.

    "I’m staying with my positivity for Martyn and that’s what I’m going to hold on to," she added.

    Stuart Murray, Hett's stepfather, also appeared in the interview. "I just feel sad that [the attacker] wasted their life for nothing," he said.

    "What have they got to show? Absolutely nothing. Martyn’s life is not wasted. He did so much with it. So there is nothing to feel about them. They wasted a life, not Martyn’s."

I have accused no one of guilt in any of these cases, well, that is beyond commenting on how stupid these guys are and how they create most of their own problems.

    6. Judicial Supremacy

      For the first time in his decade as chief justice, Roberts read a dissenting opinion from the bench. His dissent was particularly biting, one that pilloried the majority for what he stated was an unconstitutional, unprecedented “act of will, not legal judgment.”

      Roberts quickly and bluntly stated that while arguments of social fairness and equality have “undeniable appeal,” he thought the court was out of its element in trying to decide this issue.

      “[T]his court is not a legislature,” he wrote. “Whether same-sex marriage is a good idea should be of no concern to us. Under the Constitution, judges have power to say what the law is, not what it should be.”

      He left little doubt that he thought the five justices in the majority were overreaching, calling the court’s decision to order marriage licenses in every state an “extraordinary step.” He said that many people would celebrate this, and he wrote that he did not begrudge anyone their victory or access to new benefits. But he was extremely critical of what he called “the majority’s extravagant conception of judicial supremacy.”

      His explanation for why he feels the court overreached is worth quoting in full here:

      Supporters of same-sex marriage have achieved considerable success persuading their fellow citizens—through the democratic process—to adopt their view. That ends today. Five lawyers have closed the debate and enacted their own vision of marriage as a matter of constitutional law. Stealing this issue from the people will for many cast a cloud over same-sex marriage, making a dramatic social change that much more difficult to accept.

      Roberts returns again and again to the idea of the five justices acting without regard for precedent or the proper role of a judiciary, casting the majority’s decision as one that upends an understanding of marriage that has persisted for, as Kennedy noted, millennia.

      As he puts it at one point:

      “Just who do we think we are?”

      I'd say an overreaching Judiciary is Consequential.

      Perhaps, but not in the case you cite. At least as far as I know. I could be wrong. I haven't been following the issue closely since the decision. But that battle was lost decades ago when the generation you and I belong to decided to take off its sandals and tie dyeds and get jobs in education and politics, when they taught their kids to be non-judgmental and told them everyone was free to do whatever they wanted. It started strong in the fifties when the gay rights movement having learned the lessons of past minorities marched and made demands and when those demands were met moved on to the next step, from the justifiable initial demands for laws against discrimination and hate crimes to demands for civil unions and finally gay marriage.

      It's a recognized path oft repeated. However, it was obvious what the LLGIIUGFFDDHJ community was looking for all along especially after civil unions were judged legal. It was not legal rights they were looking for, they already had those, it was not wedding cakes and receptions, it was recognition as 'normal' for a population with a lifestyle that was alternative and unconventional and anything but 'normal'. The oxymoron that is 'gay marriage' was accepted as being the same as 'traditional marriage' by the majority of Americans who have been bred to care less. The courts in their decision recognized that.

      The gay marriage decision was the cherry on top, it changes nothing in a country that could really give a shit one way or the other. The only affect to you and me and many others is as an insult to the intellect.

      In you case, it might be a smaller insult.

      :o)

      Just kidding.

      What will effect us is any further ruling that will encroach on other individual rights such as those involving religion or others I can't think right now as my dog is pressuring me for a walk.


      And let's face it. I doubt anyone here is going to be personally affected by this decision or any other on 'religious grounds'.

  32. What President Trump’s treatment of Sarah Huckabee Sanders tells us


    In a fit of provincialism, I found and find Trump’s treatment of her as an affront of the highest order. Press secretaries have a tough job. To do it, they must trust their reputation will hold up over time. They must trust that their boss will back them up by, at the very least, making sure their stories line up. And this is Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ first time on the big stage. A young person’s make-it-or-break-it opportunity.

    But President Donald Trump sent her into the maelstrom of all those hotshot reporters with a false narrative. When she gamely gave it her all, in her first times at the podium, she endured national ridicule. And then Trump cut the legs out from under her arguments almost before the butterflies in her stomach stopped fluttering around like those lightning bugs in Trump’s brain.

    Why do good salt of the earth people still like this man? Why do they trust him with what is sacred to them?

    In the way that he has lived his life, Trump reflects open disdain for their values. A Christian marriage? Forget it! Striving to cultivate a servant’s heart? Pathetic! Living modestly? Ridiculous! Treating others humbly and with respect? Strictly for losers! Serving the Lord with the faith of a child? Strictly for total losers! Honesty? You’re killing me!

    Trump is like those hypocrites, the Pharisees, and that den of thieves, the moneychangers in the temple that Jesus famously sent packing.

    What he just did to Sarah Huckabee Sanders is what he is doing to those salt of the earth folks who supported him.

    He’s using them like playthings he throws away.

  34. Saturday Night Cinema: Fire Over England (1937)
    By Pamela Geller - on May 27, 2017
    SATURDAY NIGHT CINEMA

    Our Saturday Night Cinema classic is Fire Over England (aka Gloriana) is a 1937 London Film Productions film drama, notable for providing the first pairing of Laurence Olivier and Vivien Leigh. It was directed by William K. Howard and written by Clemence Dane from the novel Fire Over England by A. E. W. Mason. Leigh’s performance in the film helped to convince David O. Selznick to cast her as Scarlett O’Hara in his production of Gone with the Wind. The film is a historical drama set during the reign of Elizabeth I focusing on England’s victory over the Spanish Armada.

    The dazzlingly-handsome Laurence Olivier plays a British naval officer who offers his services to Queen Elizabeth after his father is executed by the Spaniards.
    Laurence Olivier and Vivien Leigh look gorgeous but it’s Flora Robson as Queen Elizabeth who steals the show

    In 1588, the Spanish Armada sailed against Elizabeth I’s England.



    “There’ll always be an England” Indeed, it just might be a sharia state.


    Review: ‘Fire Over England’

    Variety, December 31, 1936:

    This is a handsomely mounted and forcefully dramatic glorification of Queen Bess. It holds a succession of brilliantly played scenes, a wealth of choice diction, pointed excerpts from English history and a series of impressive tableaux.

    It projects Flora Robson in a conception of the British regent which holds the imagination. Her keen aptitude in dovetailing the strong and frail sides of Elizabeth’s nature makes a solid keystone for the production.
    The Guardian (2013):

    INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS
    Fire Over England, Flora Robson, Leslie Banks Photograph: Everett Collection/Rex Features

    Philip II’s Spain is beleaguered by English pirates. The Spanish ambassador turns up at the court of Queen Elizabeth (Flora Robson) to protest. Elizabeth insists she has nothing to do with piracy, and considers herself Philip’s loving sister (as history buffs will know, he was married to her half-sister, Mary I). “His portrait still hangs in a place of honour,” she assures the ambassador. “My king does not ask your grace to hang his portrait, but to hang his enemies,” the ambassador zings back.

    1. PIRACY
      Fire Over England
      Fire Over England, Vivien Leigh, Laurence Olivier Photograph: Moviestore Collection/Rex Features
      Meanwhile, fictional English pirate’s son Michael Ingolby (Laurence Olivier) is aboard a ship when it is taken by the Inquisition. He jumps overboard and swims to the Spanish coast. Conveniently, he stumbles ashore at the palace of an old friend of his father’s. Even more conveniently, the old friend of his father’s has a comely daughter, Elena (Tamara Desni). Soon he’s having a whale of a time hanging out on a Spanish beach, wearing a silly hat, singing songs and indulging in a light holiday romance.

      JUSTICE
      The reverie sours when Michael sees smoke rising from nearby Lisbon. (The film’s geography is baffling: Lisbon, being slap-bang in the middle of 16th-century Portugal, would not have been visible from anywhere in Spain – though it was the port from which the Spanish Armada sailed.) The Inquisition has condemned his father to die by fire. Michael flies into a hammy tantrum. “If only you knew how I loathed you all! Your Spanish faces, your Spanish voices!” he bellows at his hosts. “You’ve made me your household pet, but you’ve burned my father!” This scene is perhaps not supposed to be quite as hilarious as it is.

      CASTING
      Fire over England film still

      Michael flees to England on a fishing boat, and swiftly disarms an assassin heading for Elizabeth. “I would give you my life,” he tells the queen. “Would you?” she replies, caustically. “Would you give me your silly young life?” She’s magnificent. But Michael is distracted by the dewy beauty of her lady-in-waiting, Lord Burghley‘s fictional granddaughter, Cynthia (Vivien Leigh). This was Olivier and Leigh’s first film together, and they were both still married to other people at the time – though not for long. They’re disarmingly gorgeous on screen: Leigh sparkling and catlike; Olivier a 1930s Henry Cavill, only slightly less inflated and wearing more guyliner.

      Even so, it’s Robson who steals this show. She may not be as stunning as her co-stars, but she’s by turns charming, earthy and surprisingly vulnerable, with a crackling wit. She’s perfect as Elizabeth – a role she reprised three years later, in Errol Flynn vehicle The Sea Hawk.

      SPYING
      Elizabeth sends Michael to spy on Philip II (Raymond Massey). “Make up the fire,” the Spanish king orders a flunkey. “This hot April day?” asks the flunkey. Philip replies, in a tone that can only have been inspired by Bela Lugosi’s Dracula: “I am. Always. Cold.” Politically, you’d expect this film to be one-sided, and it is. There’s a fun fictional subplot that allows Michael plenty of scope for sword fights, scampering around rooftops, setting fire to things and so forth, and gives him another go with the now-married Elena. Back in England, Cynthia pines for him unwarrantedly.

      BATTLE
      Fire Over England

      The film rejoins history at Tilbury, where Elizabeth is preparing to defeat the Spanish Armada. The navy’s real commanders, Francis Drake and Lord Howard, have been written out of the film; instead, it’s Michael who sends the fireships. To Elizabeth’s annoyance, he wants to celebrate afterwards by marrying Cynthia. This leaves the queen with no one to flirt with, except her troublesome old flame the Earl of Leicester (Leslie Banks). “I’ll have no married folk at my court,” she growls. “I’m a married man,” Leicester admits, earning the queenly riposte: “More fool you.”

      VERDICT
      Though Fire Over England is fictionalised, it’s entertaining and has a decent grasp of the historical context. Moreover, its Elizabeth is one of the finest you’ll see on screen.

    Lawyer: Kushner ‘has no recollection’ of reported undisclosed Russian contacts


    Top presidential adviser Jared Kushner’s legal team pushed back Friday night against a report that the White House senior adviser and Trump son-in-law had at least three undisclosed contacts with a Russian ambassador during and after the 2016 presidential campaign, saying he had “no recollection” of the alleged exchanges.

    "Mr. Kushner participated in thousands of calls in this time period. He has no recollection of the calls as described,” Kushner’s lawyer Jamie Gorelick told POLITICO in a statement, responding to a Reuters report about Kushner's contacts with Russian ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak.

    “We have asked (Reuters) for the dates of such alleged calls so we may look into it and respond, but we have not received such information," Gorelick added.

    But Kushner's legal team was silent about other reports that President Donald Trump's son-in-law sought to establish a secret line of communications with the Kremlin. The White House did not respond to requests for comment on the reports.

    According to Reuters, Kushner held at least two phone calls between April and November of last year with Kislyak, who’s represented Russian President Vladimir Putin in Washington since 2008.
