Retired CIA operative warns us "Convergence Is Worse Than Collusion"

I heard former CIA 'clandestine serviceman' Jon Sipher on Renato Mariotti's fantastic podcast On Topic. Sipher describes how Trump and Putin's colliding interests are far more threatening to the future of democracy than answering the question "was there collusion?" The entire story was published by The Atlantic here. Two Donald Trump supporters were recently photographed at a rally wearing shirts emblazoned with the phrase i’d rather be russian than a democrat. To some supporters of Preside...

Voting Rights: Will Iowa Be The Next State To Let Felons Vote?

Republican Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds is looking to roll back the state’s ban on felon voting, she announced this week. Iowa is one of three states with constitutions that permanently ban convicted felons from voting unless the governor choses to restore the felon’s franchise. Reynolds proposed in her Condition of the State speech a constitutional amendment, which would need to go through the legislature, to change the current system, though the details of the proposal are still unclear.

Trump says San Antonio shows border walls works, despite city being 150 miles from border and having no wall

Donald Trump has cited San Antonio as proof that border walls make the US safer, despite the Texas city not having a border wall and being 150 miles from Mexico. Mr Trump’s comments on Saturday were intended to justify his demand for $5.7bn to fund a US-Mexico border wall. The president may have intended to refer to El Paso, a Texas border city he used as an example in a similar anecdote last week.

Sci-Fi Sundays: Analog, December 1962

2019 started off with a rather interesting tweet from Elon Musk. He was showing off the "Starship test flight rocket" from SpaceX. This thing evokes a strong bit of imagery that has been so deeply integrated into our culture through science fiction for so many years that it just feels... right. Starship test flight rocket just finished assembly at the @SpaceX Texas launch site. This is an actual picture, not a rendering. — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) January 11, 2019 ...

Trump 'tried to cut off' disaster relief money for Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria

President Trump attempted to cut off federal disaster aid to Puerto Rico, it has been reported, which may have prompted deputy Housing and Urban Development secretary Pam Patenaude to resign. In October, the president inaccurately tweeted that the Puerto Rican government was planning on using the disaster relief money for Hurricane Maria to pay off old debts. Although untrue, Mr Trump then reportedly attempted to prevent disaster-relief money from going to Puerto Rico, and instead requested th...

Court Allows Texas To Block Planned Parenthood From Medicaid Funding

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — A federal appeals court panel on Thursday lifted a lower-court ban that prohibited Texas from eliminating Planned Parenthood from the state’s Medicaid program. The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans issued the ruling that removes the preliminary injunction U.S. District Judge Sam Sparks of Austin imposed on the state of Texas in February 2017.
