    A federal judicial council will launch an internal investigation into a prominent judge accused of sexual misconduct on the job. Judge Alex Kozinski, a member of the San Francisco-based U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, was the subject of a Washington Post article last week in which six women accused him of engaging in in appropriate behavior and making inappropriate comments. Among the allegations, the Post reported one of the judge’s former law clerks claimed Kozinski asked her to look at pornographic images.

    Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has officially unveiled a new ID program he says is designed to welcome the “undocumented” community and people “on the sidelines” into the city. “If you want somebody who’s undocumented to feel comfortable to be able to drive their child to school and all the benefits, they have to be part of the city,” Emanuel said. The name “municipal ID” was initially floated for the program, but Emanuel revealed that Chicago’s city IDs would actually be called “City Keys.” He said City Keys were designed to give a person who doesn’t have an ID or a driver’s license essentially the same benefits as those who do. “When somebody says, 'Can I see your driver’s license?' -- what that unlocks and what that smooths out and all the speed bumps that literally get eliminated because you have a driver’s license,” Emanuel said. The mayor says the IDs will also provide benefits including discounts at cultural centers, on public transit and for veterans and senior citizens at locations across the city. Chicagoans will be able to link their public transit and library card to the ID and potentially even open bank accounts with it.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin said he was tired of hearing allegations from Warsaw that a 2010 plane crash that killed then Polish President Lech Kaczynski was the result of a Russian conspiracy, drawing a sharp rebuke from Warsaw. Responding to a question from a Polish reporter at an annual news conference, Putin said it was time for Poland to move beyond the plane crash, turn a new page, and “grow up”. Poland’s defence minister denounced Putin’s comments. “In the mouth of the leader of a country that is responsible for the Katyn genocide, as well as for the Smolensk tragedy, such words are really shocking,” Antoni Macierewicz told public radio PR 24, referring to a Soviet massacre of thousands of Polish officers and intellectuals during World War Two, as well as the Smolensk crash. “President Putin should finally face the truth: two explosions which eventually destroyed the Tu-154 were incontestably identified by official expertise,” Macierewicz said. The new investigatory commission created by Macierewicz said in April this year that blasts most likely tore the plane into pieces killing all 96 people seconds before it hit the ground. It repeated allegations that Russian air traffic controllers had deliberately set the plane on the wrong descent path. Polish prosecutors said then they would press charges against two controllers. Moscow rejected the allegations. More at: https://www.reuters.com/article/russia-putin-poland/update-1-putin-says-poland-should-grow-up-and-stop-blaming-moscow-for-air-crash-idUSL8N1OE6AY

    Reuters reports that the South Korean government is taking precautions to assuage the international community’s fears. Police conducted a series of security drills on Tuesday to prepare against terror attacks ranging from a hostage situation, a vehicle ramming a stadium and a bomb-attached to a drone. South Korea Police and firemen were among around 420 personnel participating in the exercise, held in front of the Olympic Stadium at Pyeongchang, just 80 km (50 miles) from the heavily fortified border with North Korea as SWAT team members rehearsed a scenario where they shot down a drone with a bomb attached that was flying toward a bus carrying athletes. In another situation, a terrorist takes a bus full of tourists hostage and tries to ram the vehicle into the stadium before being gunned down by police. Officers in gas masks also practiced removing a chemical bomb. More at: http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-12-12/south-korea-braces-terrorism-2018-winter-games

    Providing high-speed internet to rural areas is a constant challenge; after all, there isn't a lot of incentive for companies to build infrastructure for a limited number of people. That's why AT&T's Project AirGig is so interesting. It provides internet speeds of up to 1 gigabyte per second thanks to power lines. Today, the company announced that it's starting its first international trial of AirGig, as well as its second US trial in the state of Georgia. It's been awhile since we've heard about AirGig -- well over a year -- so you'd be forgiven for thinking AT&T had abandoned idea. Apparently, the company is just taking its time with the testing phase. It's unclear where the first US trial took place. AirGig works through tiny radio stations that are mounted on top of existing infrastructure and telephone poles. They don't require access to the pole's power source and doesn't use the existing wiring to send signals. Instead, AirGig stations use millimeter wave signals to communicate. It's a low-cost, low-impact way to put high-speed internet in areas that don't currently have access to it. More at: https://finance.yahoo.com/news/t-power-line-mounted-internet-044400254.html

    The government watchdog group Judicial Watch released documents today from the U.S. State Department showing that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her top aide Huma Abedin were allowed to "remove electronic and physical records under a claim they were 'personal' materials and 'unclassified, non-record materials," including files on Clinton's telephone calls and schedules that were not to be made public. In addition, the documents show that Abedin took five boxes of "physical files" from the State Department that included records marked "Muslim Engagement Documents." All of these records were obtained through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request made by Judicial Watch. "We already know the Obama State Department let Hillary Clinton steal and then delete her government emails, which included classified information," said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton in a statement. "But these new records show that was only part of the scandal." More at: https://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/michael-w-chapman/judicial-watch-state-dept-cut-deal-clinton-keep-call-logs-secret

    I know, but the hype going around is that they may do that or better, I don't buy it but if Kennedy does we may be rid of the turncoat sooner rather than later. I'd suggest Moore for SCOTUS but I want someone younger.

    Doug Jones’ victory in Tuesday’s special Senate election in Alabama may change Justice Anthony Kennedy’s calculus as he mulls retirement. The race’s shock result has imperiled the Republican Senate majority ahead of the 2018 midterm elections, and with it the integrity of the judicial confirmation process, which appears nonfunctional under divided government. Though the justice has recently told prospective clerks that he is considering retirement, the prospect of his departure seemed remote. In a political environment as volatile as this, his power as the Court’s swing vote is at its maximum. It seems counter intuitive that he would retire as his influence reaches its apex. What’s more, Kennedy has a high opinion of the Court’s capacity to bear moral clarity for a restless nation, making his continued service a matter of duty. However true this may be, the justice is 81 and he is, after all, a Republican. Given his age and political inclinations, it is reasonable to assume he would like to retire and would prefer to do so under a Republican president. Jones’ stunning victory Tuesday betrayed the vulnerability of the GOP’s Senate majority, and the very real possibility that Democrats will seize control of the upper chamber in November 2018.

    A Russian hacker has reportedly confessed that he hacked the DNC and stole Hillary Clinton's emails under the direction of Russia's Federal Security Service (FSB), claims Russian news outlet The Bell. Konstantin Kozlovsky - a Russian citizen with a hacker group called Lurk, confessed to the theft during a hearing about his arrest in August, along with a handwritten letter in which he admits to acting on the orders of an FSB agent he referred to as "Ilya." Sound familiar? In May, another Russian hacker claimed US officials offered him cash, citizenship and an apartment if he would accept responsibility for hacking the DNC and stealing Clinton's emails - which he refused, and was then arrested by the FBI under the lead of former Director James Comey. “ you will have to confess to breaking into Clinton’s inbox for on behalf of ,” Mr. Nikulin wrote, as translated by The Moscow Times. "Later I received an offer from an agent: "You will have to declare that you broke Hillary Clinton mailbox for J. Trump on Putin's orders, you must agree to the extradition to the US, then we will remove all charges give you apartment and money, US citizenship "- I gave up shortly" questioning "was over, the agent said that they had come" According to Nikulin, the proposal was made during conversations 14-15 November. The following conversation then took place on February 7 (translation via Currenttime.tv)

    Why Is Hillary Clinton Still Wearing Surgical Boot Two Months After Breaking Her Toe? What's going on with Hillary Clinton's toe? The former Secretary of State was spotted wearing a black surgical boot during a Vancouver stop along her book tour, two months after she says she took a tumble down some stairs in high heels while holding a cup of coffee. Clinton ambled onto the stage in some sort of black outfit to promote her book What Happened - which details why her election loss is everyone's fault but hers, when onlookers were confronted with the orthopedic device she's worn since October. While recounting her harrowing incident, Clinton said 'I was running down the stairs in heels with a cup of coffee in hand, I was talking over my shoulder and my heel caught and I fell backwards. 'I tried to get up and it really hurt. I've broken my toe." Toe fractures generally take four to six weeks to heal: "If your toe is crooked after the injury, the bone may be out of place... ...It can take 4 to 6 weeks for complete healing," according to medlineplus.gov.

    The White House is pushing back on a report by Politico Thursday that House Speaker Paul Ryan is considering leaving Washington at the end of next year. Asked whether the president was aware of the reports, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the president spoke to Ryan and that the reports are false. “The president did speak to the Speaker not too long ago and made sure the speaker knew very clearly and in no uncertain terms that if that news was true he was very unhappy with it,” Sanders said “The Speaker assured the president those were not accurate reports and that they looked forward to working together for a long time to come.” More at: https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/white-house-denies-paul-ryan-retirement-report-not-200932299.html
