GOP blocks Democratic attempts to allow CDC research into gun violence

No.185371 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReportDownload thread
A House panel ... rejected multiple efforts by Democrats to eliminate a budget amendment that has frozen nearly all government research into gun violence for 17 years.

During a markup of next year’s health spending bill, Republicans blocked two amendments that would have allowed the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to study gun-related deaths. Neither had a recorded vote.

Eliminating the provision has become a priority for Democrats since the ... attack on a gay nightclub in Orlando, Fla., that killed 49 people ...

The provision, known as the Dickey Amendment for former Rep. Jay Dickey (R-Ark.), was first enacted in 1996 after groups including the National Rifle Association (NRA) accused federal agencies of trying to advance gun control.

The amendments came from leading Democrats on the House Appropriations Committee, Reps. Rosa DeLauro (Conn.) and Nita Lowey (N.Y.). Both lawmakers mentioned that the bill’s namesake has since urged Congress to repeal the language.

“Congressman Dickey has made it clear that the Second Amendment is not threatened by science,” Lowey, the top Democrat on the House Appropriations Committee, said. “All I’m saying is, let’s do what the original author of this language advises.”

Only one current Republican lawmaker is on record in support of repealing the language. Rep. Bob Dold (R-Ill.), who is among the most endangered House lawmakers this cycle, quietly signed a letter last December from several medical groups that urged GOP leadership to make the change.

The 1997 budget amendment specifically prohibits federal funds “to advocate or promote gun control,” which researchers say has had a chilling effect.

But Rep. Tom Cole (R-Okla.), who leads the Appropriations health subcommittee, pointed out that it is not an outright ban.

Japan election 2017

No.191014 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
Today, Japan votes for its new leading party.
The favoured party to win is the current leading party, the Liberal Democrats, lead by Shinzo Abe. His goal is to amend the Japanese constitution to allow Japan to go to war again. This has been his long term goal and the situation in North Korea brought him closer to achieving it.
Personally, I hope he doesn't win.

Israeli Suspend Plan to Set Up Database of Jewish Students in U.S.

No.188875 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
Several hours after Haaretz published a story exposing a controversial Israeli government initiative to set up a database with the names of all Jewish students in the United States, the plan was put on hold.

The project was supposed to have been run through Mosaic United, a company set up by the Ministry of Diaspora Affairs several years ago with the declared mission of strengthening the religious identity and connection to Israel of young Jews abroad.

In its statement, Hillel International said it had not been aware of the plan until it received an inquiry from Haaretz. We immediately investigated and made clear to Mosaic United our objections to this initiative. We believe the initiative in this tender is not in the best interest of engaging American Jewish college students. Based on our objections, Mosaic United has agreed to take down the tender from its website and cancel this initiative. We appreciate Mosaic Uniteds swift response to our concerns.

California Now Recognizes a Third Gender called "Nonbinary"

No.189266 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread

Gov. Jerry Brown on Sunday signed into law legislation that recognizes a third gender option for driver’s licenses and birth certificates. Starting in 2019, Californians will be able to identify themselves as not just male or female, but “nonbinary.”
The bill was one of many Brown left to the last day of the Oct. 15 deadline to either sign or veto.
California joins Oregon and Washington D.C. in creating the third gender option on driver’s licenses. New York state may follow suit. Unlike California, Oregon and Washington have not passed an actual law enacting the change. Countries that recognize a third gender include Australia, Germany and India.

The legislation, SB 179, from state Sen. Toni Atkins (D-San Diego) and Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco), also rescinds the requirement that individuals who want to change their gender must submit a sworn statement from a physician declaring they have undergone clinical treatment. That change takes effect Sept. 1, 2018.
“With Governor Brown’s signature on this bill, transgender and non-binary people will now be able to identify themselves as they are, not as who society tells them they should be,” said Wiener, in a statement.
The new law not only addresses the experience of inter-sex people — those individuals born with ambiguous sexual characteristics — but also codifies a growing trend among transgender youth who eschew a traditional gender identity, decoupling it from not only their innate physiology, but from the notion that only males and females exist.
