GOP allows CHIP (medicaid program ensuring medical treatment for 9 million children) to expire

No.183941 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReportDownload thread
Advocates for children’s health started worrying months ago that congressional incompetence would jeopardize the nation’s one indisputable healthcare success — the Children’s Health Insurance Program, which has reduced the uninsured rate among kids to 5% from 14% over the two decades of its existence.

Their fears turned out to be true. Funding for CHIP runs out on Saturday, and no vote on reestablishing the program’s $15-billion appropriation is expected for at least a week, probably longer. That’s the case even though CHIP is one of the few federal programs that has enjoyed unalloyed bipartisan support since its inception in 1997. The consequences will be dire in many states, which will have to curtail or even shut down their children’s health programs until funding is restored. Hanging in the balance is care for 9 million children and pregnant women in low-income households.

What happened? The simple answer is that congressional Republicans’ last harebrained attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act got in the way. A funding bill for CHIP seemed to be well on its way to enactment until a week or so ago. That’s when the effort to pass the egregious Cassidy-Graham repeal bill sucked all the air out of the legislative room.

Agreement on a bill had been reached in mid-September by Sens. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) and Ron Wyden (D-Ore.). “Momentum was building,” says Bruce Lesley, president of First Focus, a children’s advocacy group in Washington. Then came Cassidy-Graham, and “we couldn’t even get a meeting,” Lesley says. “No one was even taking our calls.”

emails and videos leaked of breitbart staff corresponding with neo-nazis

No.185391 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
Citing a cache of leaked internal documents, an expose by BuzzFeed News has sought to connect the dots on how the alt-right's leading site has been pooling racist, sexist, and/or white nationalist ideals (and, at it happens, seemingly endless cracks about masturbation).

On Thursday, BuzzFeed News’ Joseph Bernstein published the results of a massive investigation into the strategic and ideological inner workings of Breitbart News, and particularly the actions and opinions of former Trump adviser and Breitbart executive Steve Bannon and former Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos.

Based on internal emails and documents from the company, the expose reveals how Bannon, Yiannopoulos, and a large cast of other Breitbart players and employees worked to develop and advance an agenda that embraced tactics, values, and assistance from neo-Nazi and white nationalist groups, among others.

In his roles as Breitbart voice and Bannon surrogate, BuzzFeed reported, Yiannopoulos in particular sought input and content from white nationalists and neo-Nazis, but also collaborated with like-minded (if previously more low profile) members of the media and business communities.

Bernstein wrote, "These new emails and documents [clearly] show that Breitbart does more than tolerate the most hate-filled, racist voices of the alt-right. It thrives on them, fueling and being fueled by some of the most toxic beliefs on the political spectrum--and clearing the way for them to enter the American mainstream." He continued, "They [also] reveal how the website--and, in particular, Yiannopoulos--links the Mercer family, the billionaires who fund Breitbart, to underpaid trolls who fill it with provocative content, and to extremists striving to create a white ethnostate."

Trump Reportedly Jokes About Mike Pence Wanting to 'Hang' Gays

No.189000 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
In a profile of Vice President Mike Pence published Monday in The New Yorker, Jane Mayer reported on a meeting among an unnamed legal scholar, President Donald Trump and Pence in which Trump joked that Pence "wants to hang" gay people.

Mayer also cited two sources who told her Trump routinely enjoys needling the conservative former Indiana governor about his views on abortion and homosexuality. During the meeting with the legal scholar, Mayer reported Trump "belittled Pence's determination to overturn Roe v. Wade" after the scholar said many states would likely legalize abortion if the Supreme Court were to rule against it.

When the conversation shifted to gay rights, Trump allegedly motioned to Pence and joked, "Don't ask that guy — he wants to hang them all!"

We've got enough data and anecdotes now to make an early call on whether President Donald Trump's fight over NFL players kneeling during the National Anthem was a political winner for him. With a small and probably irrelevant caveat, it was.
Two national surveys with rigorous methodologies show Americans are opposed to kneeling during the National Anthem:
-- A Fox News poll found 55% of Americans saying kneeling is inappropriate.
-- The most recent CNN/SSRS poll of adults found 49% saying the players are doing the wrong thing, versus 43% who say they are doing the right thing. Almost one-quarter of American adults said they planned to personally boycott NFL games, broadcasts and products because of the protests.
Inside the CNN poll, Trump got what he wanted: More Republicans (87%) and Independents (48%) sided with him than not. Heck, even 21% of Democrats are with him on the NFL issue. Even 24% of people who disapprove of the job he's doing overall see this issue his way.
(A bevy of other surveys of varying methodologies have also found clear majorities agreeing with Trump).

Anti-corruption blogger killed by huge bomb in Malta

Daphne Caruana Galizia, Malta’s best-known investigative journalist, was killed on Monday when a powerful bomb blew up her car, police said, in a case that stunned the small Mediterranean island.

Caruana Galizia, 53, ran a hugely popular blog in which she relentlessly highlighted cases of alleged high-level corruption targeting politicians from across party lines.

“There are crooks everywhere you look now. The situation is desperate,” she wrote in a blog published on her site just half an hour before an explosion tore into her car.

Locals said Caruana Galizia had just left her house and was on a road near the village of Bidnija in northern Malta when the bomb detonated, sending her car flying into an adjacent field.

Maltese Prime Minister Joseph Muscat, who faced accusations of wrong-doing by Caruana Galizia earlier this year, denounced her killing, calling it a “barbaric attack on press freedom”.

He announced that the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) had agreed to help local police investigate the killing and was flying experts to the island as soon as possible.

“I will not rest until I see justice done in this case,” he said in a statement, calling for national unity.

Around 3,000 people held a silent, candle-lit vigil on Tuesday evening in Sliema, just outside Valletta.

The hashtag Je Suis Daphne circulated widely among social media users on the island of 400,000 people, the European Union’s smallest state.

Warren teen caught having sex with wiener dog again

No.182251 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReportDownload thread
WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – Police in Warren say a teenage boy admitted to having sex with a dog again.

Police said a family member found the 17-year-old boy naked in bed with the dog at a home on Homewood Avenue SE. They reported it to Trumbull County Children Services.

The teen spends half of his time with Children Services and the other half with his family.

It’s been almost exactly a year to the day since the then-16-year-old was charged with animal cruelty for having sexual contact with the dog. Those acts happened before Warren’s bestiality law took effect.

Now he’s facing two misdemeanor counts of bestiality and animal cruelty charges after police said he admitted to doing it again.

During an extensive interview at Trumbull County Children Services, the boy confessed to having sex with the dog in July and September, according to investigators.

He is being held on a probation violation at the Juvenile Detention Center.

The wiener dog mix named Pee Wee is being examined by a veterinarian to see if it received any injuries during the encounters.

“The dog is currently with the Animal Welfare League, checking for any injuries,” Det. Nick Carney said.

He said the encounters took place for an hour or more.

Carney said this case is far from over.

“My concern with the interview is if he would do this to an animal, what would you do to a small child? So this case is not open and shut. There is some follow-up work I have to do that I can’t really talk about right now.”

Investigators are waiting on the results of the vet examination. They said if the dog was seriously injured, the charges could be adjusted.
