Welcome to freedom: Arizona bill would make riding in a car without ID a crime

“A bill making its way through the Arizona Legislature could make it a misdemeanor to hop in a car, as a passenger, without proper identification.

Deputy Pima County Attorney Kathleen Mayer argued that requiring all passengers carry proper identification could help officers when they suspect a passenger is acting illegally.

House Bill 2305 prompted plenty of questions from members on the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Wednesday.

Democrat Representative Jesus Rubalcava pointed out how easily the law could be abused.

“I have a problem with the severity of criminalizing individuals based on not being able to show an ID, simply just by being in the passenger seat of a car without a seat belt,” Rubalcava said.

“There has to be a reasonable suspicion to stop you. And the law already requires you, as the driver, to have a driver’s license,” said Mayer. “If everyone is buckled in when an officer pulls a vehicle over, and they’re not doing anything wrong, they cannot be compelled to provide identification.”

The committee voted to pass the passenger ID bill, but warned it may not have the same members’ support if nothing is changed to protect passengers’ civil rights before it goes to the House floor for a full vote.

As it’s currently written, passengers found without an ID could face up to four months in jail and a $750 fine.”

Don’t worry about federal tyranny

It’s here on the state level

This is the worst possible case of the police state

Fight it now or fight it later

It’s coming at you one way or another

Still waiting for the Exodus

Congress shows its true mettle

https://i2.wp.com/www.officepolitics.com/advice/wp-content/Businessman_OPweasel.png

“As a result, the first day of the 115th Congress served as a sort of beta test of how some Republicans will react when Trump sics his media power on them. If the most conservative flank tries to buck Trump on a pricey infrastructure deal, how will they handle the heat from Trump’s Twitter feed? If moderate Republicans try to block his moves on health care, will they withstand the heat if Trump goes to Breitbart to attack them by name?

On Tuesday the answer came fast: Run for cover.

“With all that Congress has to work on, do they really have to make the weakening of the Independent Ethics Watchdog . . . their number one act and priority,” Trump asked in a pair of tweets just after 10 a.m., adding that there were “so many other things of far greater importance.”

By 11:50 a.m., literally 10 minutes before the constitutionally mandated start of the new Congress, Ryan and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) called an emergency meeting. Some Republicans piled into the meeting with their children in tow, there to see their mother or father sworn into another term in Congress.

The night before, by a large margin, House Republicans had approved an amendment to their new rules package for the 115th Congress that would have substantially impaled the investigative capabilities of the Office of Congressional Ethics — an independent body that was formed almost a decade ago after a raft of mostly Republican corruption cases landed in federal courthouses.

The OCE, as it is known, was meant to serve as a quasi-grand jury that would handle complaints from the public and tipsters, as well as reviewing media stories of potentially corrupt acts. If there’s a high likelihood an infraction occurred, it gets referred to the House Ethics Committee, which is evenly split between Republicans and Democrats and has full subpoena power and can mete out punishment.

Lawmakers in both parties have seen the OCE as overly zealous at times, and there have been previous calls to rein in the team of former federal prosecutors who have overseen it the past nine years.”

It all adds up to someone not wanting to let go of the brass ring

They have come this close to power and now they do not want to relinquish it

If so, I have one word for them:

Retribution

California professor in hiding after anti-Trump rant

“Los Angeles (AFP) – A California college professor who told her students that Donald Trump’s election was an “act of terrorism” has gone into hiding after her comments prompted a firestorm and death threats.

Olga Perez Stable Cox, who teaches human sexuality at Orange Coast College in Costa Mesa, fled the state after a video of her rant — secretly recorded by one of her students — was posted on Facebook, prompting outrage and threats on her life, the Orange County Register reported on Monday.

The union that represents Cox said the teacher and college had been bombarded with more than 1,000 emails and Cox had also received threatening phone calls.

“You want communism, go to Cuba… try to bring it to America and we’ll put a (expletive) bullet in your face,” one email read, according to union president Rob Schneiderman.

He said another email described Cox as a “nutcase” and vowed to make public her home address.

Cox in the video made public by the school’s Young Republicans on December 6 likened Trump’s election to “an act of terrorism” and criticized his cabinet picks and the vice president-elect, Mike Pence.

“Our nation is divided. We have been assaulted. It is an act of terrorism,” she told the students.

“One of the most frightening things for me and most people in my life is that the people creating the assault are among us.”

She added that the presidential election campaign and its outcome had left the country deeply divided “as clearly as it was in civil war times.”

Her comments were deemed offensive by many students, including the Young Republicans who filed a formal complaint and are circulating a petition to have her fired.”

To serve:‘Drunk’ cop stripped of his gun and badge

‘Drunk’ cop stripped of his gun and badge

A Bronx cop was stripped of his gun and badge amid allegations that he was drunk on the job Thursday — and as a photo emerged of him passed out in the stationhouse locker room with his beer belly exposed, The Post has learned.

Officer Richard Evans was deemed “unfit for duty” during his midnight-to-8 a.m. shift in the 52nd Precinct in Norwood, sources said.

“He was clearly inebriated. He was slurring his words,” a police official said.

Ironically, the first whiff of trouble came as Evans, 44, and his rookie partner checked out a report of a drunken dispute between neighbors, law enforcement sources said.

One of the people there accused Evans of being drunk, which he denied, and the officer summoned a supervisor, sources said.

Someone at the scene also shot video of the allegedly drunken cop and made a complaint to 311, a source said.

A sergeant responded, declared Evans fit for duty, and the cops all left without making any arrests, sources said.

Evans stayed in the field until a short time later, when a duty captain summoned him back to the precinct stationhouse near the New York Botanical Garden.

The captain interviewed Evans, declared him unfit for duty and immediately suspended him, sources said.

Evans was suspended without pay, said NYPD spokesman J. Peter Donald.

The officer — who earned nearly $126,800 during fiscal 2016, including nearly $50,000 in overtime — was described by sources as a problem drinker.

FAKE NEWS: New York Times Hires Reporter Who Sent Stories To Clinton Staffers For Approval

“Following the election of Donald Trump, The New York Times’ public editor wrote that the paper will be making a conscious effort to not be a “an echo chamber of liberal intellectualism.” The Huffington Post reported Monday that Politico’s Glenn Thrush, who was exposed in WikiLeaks emails sending stories to Hillary Clinton staffers before publication, will be joining the Times to cover the White House.

“We’re thrilled that Glenn Thrush is joining The Times,” Elisabeth Bumiller, The New York Times’s Washington bureau chief, told The Huffington Post. “He’s a premier political journalist, a master of breaking news and long-form story telling and a stellar addition to our White House team.”

While Bumiller described Thrush as a “premier political journalist,” in one email to Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta, Thrush chose to describe himself as a “hack.”

“No worries Because I have become a hack I will send u the whole section that pertains to u,” Thrush wrote to Podesta in an April 2015 email. “Please don’t share or tell anyone I did this Tell me if I fucked up anything.”

Thrush’s email included five paragraphs of a story pertaining to Podesta, and Podesta replied to Thrush telling him there were “no problems” with the writing. Those paragraphs appeared in a May story “Hillary’s big-money dilemma.”

Trump on Russia meddling in US election: ‘I don’t believe it’

“Washington (AFP) – President-elect Donald Trump dismissed a brewing storm over Russian cyber meddling in the US election, rejecting as “ridiculous” US intelligence reports that Moscow tried to help him win the White House.

“I don’t believe it,” Trump said in a pre-recorded interview that was broadcast Sunday on Fox News.

“I think it’s ridiculous,” Trump said, putting it down as an attempt by Democrats to find an excuse for their embarrassing election loss.

In the interview Trump touched on other issues — questioning US commitment to the “one China policy” without concessions from Beijing, and hailing Exxon CEO Rex Tillerson, who is under consideration for secretary of state, as “a world class player.”

But the controversy over the latest US intelligence consensus on Russia and Trump’s skepticism of the findings dominated the conversation at a time of deepening political divisions over how to respond to the hacking attacks.

Two top Republican senators — John McCain and Lindsey Graham — joined leading Democrats Sunday in calling for greater public disclosure about “recent cyber attacks that have cut to the heart of our free society.”

“This cannot become a partisan issue. The stakes are too high for our country,” they said in a joint statement with Chuck Schumer, the incoming Democratic leader in the Senate, and Jack Reed, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Armed Services Committee.

They pledged to work across party lines to have the incidents investigated, but other Republicans said the evidence does not support the conclusions that the Russian meddling was aimed at helping Trump.”

What was that noise? (Liberals heads exploding)

South Park gun gross head explode

“President-elect Donald Trump has picked Andrew Puzder, the head of the Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s fast food restaurants, as his nominee for Labor secretary.

Puzder, 66, is a vocal critic of government regulation and opposes a $15 minimum wage, broader overtime pay and the Affordable Care Act.

Trump, in a statement, credited him with an “extensive record fighting for workers.”

The Labor Department oversees America’s job market, regulates the workplace, and produces statistics like the unemployment rate that underpin economic policy.

Puzder has been the CEO of CKE Restaurants since 2000. He’s credited with turning around the Hardee’s brand, but his company has been accused of labor violations and fielded complaints about sexist commercials.

His appointment, which would require Senate confirmation, comes at a time when restaurants and other low-wage industries are feeling pressure to increase pay. Puzder would likely resist those pressures as Labor secretary.”

Hillary blames fake news for her loss, wants congress to ban it

“The epidemic of malicious fake news and false propaganda that flooded social media over the past year — it’s now clear the so-called fake news can have real-world consequences,” Clinton said during a speech on Capitol Hill.

Some Democrats have argued the spread of anti-Clinton fake news online contributed to her electoral loss to Donald Trump.

The issue has received renewed attention this week after a gunman entered a pizzeria in Washington that was at the center of a false viral conspiracy theory that alleged it was home to a pedophilia ring operated by Clinton and her inner circle.

“This isn’t about politics or partisanship,” Clinton continued during her speech Thursday at a ceremony honoring retiring Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.).

“Lives are at risk — lives of ordinary people just trying to go about their days, to do their jobs, contribute to their communities.”

“It’s a danger that must be addressed and addressed quickly,” she said.

How about a big resounding “Fuck you” Hillary?

How about we are not taking you, congress or anyone else “Banning” anything?

How about “We have had enough?”

You didn’t get that with the Bundy ranch, the defiance of numerous state gun control laws and just our whole “Go fuck yourself” attitude as disgruntled serfs?

Fake news?

No you vicious old hag, it was you

Pentagon buries evidence of $125 billion in bureaucratic waste

“The Pentagon has buried an internal study that exposed $125 billion in administrative waste in its business operations amid fears Congress would use the findings as an excuse to slash the defense budget, according to interviews and confidential memos obtained by The Washington Post.

Pentagon leaders had requested the study to help make their enormous back-office bureaucracy more efficient and reinvest any savings in combat power. But after the project documented far more wasteful spending than expected, senior defense officials moved swiftly to kill it by discrediting and suppressing the results.

The report, issued in January 2015, identified “a clear path” for the Defense Department to save $125 billion over five years. The plan would not have required layoffs of civil servants or reductions in military personnel. Instead, it would have streamlined the bureaucracy through attrition and early retirements, curtailed high-priced contractors and made better use of information technology.”

Help a patriot family out in their time of need

From Wirecutter:

“Angel just let me know Joshua Rowe III passed away unexpectedly on the 2nd of December. Strong Patriot, great family man, just one of those really good guys – we’ve exchanged many many emails over the past few years so I can say that I honestly knew his heart.
His family has set up a gofundme page to help raise money for his funeral expenses. Their goal is $3000 – it’s not much but it’s money that sorely needed right now. If you could find it in your heart to help out I know that family will appreciate it very much.
It’s hard to lose somebody, especially this time of the year.
