Absurd DC Authorities Now Policing Play Dates.Many on Twitter were outraged.(5 Pics)

What Washington D.C. has done now, policing the play dates of preschoolers, is insane even for liberals, The Wall Street Journal reported.
Conservatives often criticize the “nanny state,” but even we didn’t imagine it would get this bad. The District of Columbia is literally targeting preschool play dates, claiming that parents need city approval before they can baby-sit their friends’ toddlers.
Since the 1970s, parents have organized play dates at the Lutheran Church of the Reformation on East Capitol Street. They formed a nonprofit to pay for the rent, insurance, snacks and Play-Doh, and each family chips in about $200 a year to cover expenses. But like many similar co-ops in D.C., the Capitol Hill Cooperative Play School has no employees. Parent volunteers trade off child-care duties.

'Facebook is behaving like it's a special snowflake': Investors call on Mark Zuckerberg to resign as chairman following damaging report that social media giant employed PR firm to smear its critics

Investors are calling on Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to step down following a report a conservative consulting firm used 'black ops' style techniques to deflect criticism from the social networking giant.

Jonas Kron, senior vice president at Trillium Asset Management which owns an £8.5m stake in Facebook, called on Zuckerberg to step down as board chairman, telling The Telegraph: 'Facebook is behaving like it's a special snowflake. It's not. It is a company and companies need to have a separation of chair and CEO.'

Doyouthinkhesaurus? Privacy fears over £90 talking dinosaur toy programmed to 'spy' on children

It's the cute toy tipped to be a Christmas hit, but there are fears ‘Dino’ the dinosaur may be vulnerable to hackers who could steal information about its young owners.

The ‘smart toy’, which is able to ‘learn’, answer questions and read bedtime stories, is among a series of technology gifts that have failed to win approval from the Mozilla Foundation, a not- for-profit organisation that campaigns for better internet accessibility and safety.

The group said it had been unable to determine if Dino – an internet-connected toy made by CogniToys and priced at £89.99 on Amazon – uses sufficient encryption to guard against hackers.

A common additive in food and drinks found to raise your blood pressure

If people can have too much of a good thing, imagine the dangers that come from of having too much of a bad thing. That’s exactly what researchers from the University of Basel found in their recent study, which appeared in the Journal of the American Society of Nephrology. In their study, they found that consuming too much phosphate, a common additive in food and drinks, can cause a person’s blood pressure and pulse rate to shoot up.

Phosphate occurs in nature, where it is found in meat, fish, nuts, and beans. However, in its synthetic form, it’s used as a preservative. It’s added to meat products to keep from spoiling, prevent coffee from clumping, and make cheese more spreadable. It’s this increased consumption, the authors said, that could be harmful to a person’s health.

Life in fear: Report says 1 in 3 US drone-strike deaths in Yemen are civilians, including children

Bombings by the Saudi-led coalition may have devastated Yemen, but the country faces another deadly threat in the sky – US drones. A third of those killed by them in 2018 were civilians, including children, according to a report.

"We live in fear. Drones don't leave the sky," said one farmer, describing the day that two of his relatives were killed in a US drone strike. His is one of several testimonies recorded in a new report by Associated Press documenting the rising civilian death toll caused by the US drone war against Al-Qaeda's Yemeni franchise.

State House Bill 258 passed in a 58-35 vote and now moves to the state Senate for consideration. Should the state Senate approve the bill, most abortions in Ohio would be effectively banned.

We Need to Block $3 Billion Handout for Amazon & Use Money to Forgive Student Debt

After a months-long PR campaign, Amazon has officially announced it will split its so-called second headquarters between New York and Arlington, Virginia, outside Washington, D.C., after being offered more than $3 billion in tax breaks and other incentives. The news prompted protests at the site of Amazon’s future office complex in Long Island City, New York, to condemn the city and state governments for showering Amazon with massive tax breaks and other giveaways to entice the company to expand into the city. As part of the deal, New York taxpayers will even build a helipad for Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, who is the richest man in the world. Many local politicians have openly criticized authorities in New York and Virginia for backing the deals, which will create a total of 50,000 jobs. We speak with New York Assemblymember Ron Kim, who is introducing legislation to block the deal and redirect taxpayer money away from Amazon subsidies and toward student debt relief. He recently co-wrote an opinion piece for The New York Times headlined “New York Should Say No to Amazon.”

(*Democrats never stop advocating forgiving student loans , which for the one millionth time is Communist logic .
Handing it over to Corporate Giant Amazon is The Only American/Capitalist thing to do , if we have a spare $3 Billionn laying around , unless The Military starts with the mine!,mine!,mine! , then handing it to Amazon would become Socialist in comparison to the Military's need of American/Capitalist proceeds , and I sure hope they make POTUS Trump aware of any deal that could land them on a firing squad. , before they do something stupid with that $3 Bil)

It's The Federal Reserve , Stupid !

Here’s the biggest myth about the ’Trump economy'
Nearly every media outlet repeats this idea constantly, but it's just not true.

***
The president doesn't control the American economy. It's an obvious fact, but it's worth emphasizing because a great deal of discussion about presidential politics and administration policy takes as a given that the president does control the economy.
***
He didn't, he can't, he won't.

Republicans used to acknowledge this. They used to say explicitly, "Government does not create jobs." Now they say, without a hint of irony, not only does government create jobs, but Trump himself is personally responsible for every job created in the country.
***
Of course, the government does take steps to manage the economy. The Federal Reserve plays the largest direct role in this on a day-to-day basis, and the president appoints its leadership on a staggered schedule (though Trump, interestingly, currently despises his own Fed chair's policies!). Congress also passes laws that have significant impacts on the economy>>>

The Nefarious Reasons Behind the US and UK’s Sudden Concern for Civilians in Yemen

American, British and French military support for the murderous operations in Yemen should have stopped months, even years ago, if official humanitarian concerns were genuine.

At first glance, it may seem like a positive move. The Trump administration and London are both putting pressure on Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates to implement a ceasefire in Yemen’s atrocious war.

What’s wrong with that, you may ask? Well, as Houthi rebels who took over Yemen at the end of 2014 are saying, the country has been under aggression for the past three years from a Saudi-led coalition supported militarily by the US, Britain and France. The unrelenting war on the poorest country in the Middle East has led to the world’s worst humanitarian crisis in decades, with over half of the population – some 14 million people – at risk of starvation, according to the UN
***
Last week, Washington announced that it was suspending mid-air refueling flights for Saudi and Emirati warplanes that have been pounding Yemen since March 2015, which has resulted in a horrendous death toll among civilians. The indiscriminate killing of the Saudis and Emirati air strikes has been amply documented, albeit downplayed by Western media. The latter keep repeating a figure of 10,000 dead in Yemen – a figure which has bizarrely remained unchanged for at least the past two years. The real death toll from air strikes is unknown but likely to be near 50,000.

One of the key lessons of the 2018 elections is that the Left is waging – and winning – a linguistic war.

‘Wrong on so many levels’: Priest paraded through town in Porsche pulled by children (VIDEO)

A newly appointed parish priest is being accused of using his stature to put on a “ostentatious” public display, during which children were seen pulling a Porsche through the streets of a Maltese town with the clergyman inside.

Fr John Sultana, who this week was named the new parish priest for Gozitan community, Malta, was honored with a traditional parade by local followers. However, the pastor’s use of a rather luxurious vehicle and manner in which he was heralded into his new role has drawn widespread criticism.

UN office warns 97 percent of ground water in Gaza is undrinkable, causing risk of disease outbreak and epidemic

Electricity supply in Gaza increased up to 18 hours a day in some areas, following the provision of additional fuel to operate the Gaza Power Plant.

Only 22 per cent of patients injured during the Gaza demonstrations, who were referred for follow-up surgery in the West Bank or Israel, have been granted Israeli exit permits.

97 per cent of ground water extracted in Gaza is unfit for human consumption, generating the risk of a waterborne disease outbreak.

‘In-house fake news shop’ – Facebook facing new scandal and losing friends

An explosive New York Times report, published Wednesday, revealed that Facebook employed a PR firm to smear critics and publish hit-pieces on rival tech companies Apple and Google. These pieces were published on NTKNetwork.com, a site run by the firm that masqueraded as a real news site. NBC jumped on board the story, with a former employee of the firm calling NTKNetwork “our in-house fake news shop.”

Facebook claimed in response that the report was fake news. The company stated that it never asked the firm – a Washington DC-based company called Definers – to write articles or spread misinformation. CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that he was unaware of Facebook’s relationship with Definers, despite the fact that the company’s statement said that relationship was “well known by the media.”

CIA ‘concludes with high confidence’ Saudi Crown Prince ordered Khashoggi murder – reports

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman personally ordered the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Turkey last month, the CIA has concluded, according to anonymous sources who spoke with the Washington Post and Reuters.

The US foreign espionage agency assessed with "high confidence" that the prince was behind the death of the Post columnist, the newspaper reported on Friday evening, citing "people familiar with the matter." Reuters later cited its own source as saying that the spy agency "had briefed other parts of the US government on its assessment," which contradicts the official position maintained by both Riyadh and Washington thus far.

GOP chairman plans to subpoena Comey, Lynch to testify before next Congress

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) is planning to subpoena former FBI Director James Comey and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch in an effort to get them to testify before Democrats take over control of the panel in January, The Hill has learned.

Goodlatte on Friday provided notice to Rep. Jerrold Nadler (N.Y.), the top Democrat on the panel and presumed incoming chairman, of his plans to subpoena the former officials. Both officials served under former President Obama, while Comey briefly served under President Trump before being fired in May 2017.

The GOP chairman plans to subpoena the pair to discuss their decisionmaking during the 2016 presidential race, a committee aide confirmed. Republicans on the panel are seeking to have Comey appear for a deposition on Nov. 29 and for Lynch to testify Dec. 5.

A Rumor About Trey Gowdy Is Bad News For Barack Obama And The Deep State

Attorney General and the Secretaries of State and Defense usually attract the biggest names.

But Jeff Sessions quickly lost Donald Trump’s confidence.

He unnecessarily recused himself in the Russia probe, which set the stage for Robert Mueller to run his rigged witch hunt.

Ever since then, Trump taunted Sessions on social media and the countdown began as to when he would leave the administration.

Now that he is out, everyone wants to know who will succeed him.

One name that’s been floated is South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy.

The 2018 Leonid Meteor Shower Peaks This Weekend! Here's What to Expect

Come early Sunday morning (Nov. 18), the famous Leonid meteor shower will reach its peak, with lesser numbers expected on the preceding and following mornings.

According to Margaret Campbell-Brown and Peter Brown in the 2018 Observer's Handbook of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada, Earth will pass through the thickest part of the Leonid swarm at 7 p.m. EST (2300 GMT) on Nov. 17. But the best time to look will be during the after-midnight hours of Sunday morning, once the source the meteors appear to stream from, called the radiant, comes above the horizon for observers in North America. The meteors appear to fly away from a point located within the Sickle of Leo (hence the name "Leonids").

Antares Rocket Launches NASA Cargo to Space Station in Dazzling Predawn Liftoff

A Northrop Grumman Antares rocket lit up the predawn sky over Virginia Saturday (Nov. 17) to launch a privately built Cygnus spaceship filled with NASA supplies (and even some ice cream) to the International Space Station.
The Antares rocket soared into the clear, chilly skies over Virginia's Eastern Shore carrying an uncrewed Cygnus spacecraft filled with tons of science experiments, food and other vital supplies for the space station's crew. Liftoff occurred at 4:01 a.m. EST (0901 GMT) from Pad-0A of the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport here at NASA's Wallops Flight Facility after two days of delay due to bad weather.

"What an outstanding launch," said Joel Montalbano, NASA's deputy station program manager, after the dazzling liftoff. Cygnus is now on track for an arrival at the station on Monday (Nov. 19), he added.

UN Human Rights Body Defends Abortion under ‘right to life.’ One Expert calls it ‘preposterous.’

The United Nations Human Rights Committee has vigorously defended abortion in an advanced draft of a “general comment” on the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.
Interestingly, the language championing abortion falls under a “right to life” heading.
Crux — which covers the Vatican and the Catholic Church — said a “general comment” is a UN agency’s interpretation of provisions in treaties to which it is a party (such as the aforementioned “covenant”).
