    Some of us can deal with threats on multiple sides at once, WW3 isn't going to happen any way, Trump defused N. Korea and he will defuse the other hot spots too.

    The Obama White House’s chief cyber official testified Wednesday that proposals he was developing to counter Russia’s attack on the U.S. presidential election were put on a “back burner” after he was ordered to “stand down” his efforts in the summer of 2016.The comments by Michael Daniel, who served as White House “cyber security coordinator” between 2012 and January of last year, provided his first public confirmation of a much-discussed passage in the book, “Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin’s War on America and the Election of Donald Trump,” co-written by this reporter and David Corn, that detailed his thwarted efforts to respond to the Russian attack.

    There has been a disturbance in the force. Lucasfilm is reexamining its movie plans by putting every standalone movie on hold including the rumored Boba Fett and Obi-Wan Kenobi anthology movies. First reported by Collider, the news shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise. Lucasfilm had been riding off a big high on the success of The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi, but it all came to a screeching halt with Solo flaming out spectacularly, costing Disney upwards of $50 million in losses. Lucasfilm likely wants to slow things down and examine if the movies in development are actually movies worth making. That being said, even though Lucasfilm has placed a hold on the movies in development, that doesn’t mean everything is being cancelled. There’s a chance these anthology films could get made once Lucasfilm reexamines its plans. For now, fans have two new trilogies to look forward to, including one from the creators of Game of Thrones.

    Kansas officials are continuing to enforce a proof of citizenship law that a federal judge recently deemed unconstitutional. The Topeka Capital-Journal reported Wednesday that staff for Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach has directed county clerks to continue requiring voters to present documentary proof of citizenship. One county clerk said she was instructed to continue enforcing the policy "as we have been." Danedri Herbert, a spokeswoman for Kobach, told the news outlet that state officials still need time to fully understand the court’s ruling on the law. She argued that the judge did not provide a clear timeline for when Kobach had to instruct county clerks to implement the policy. “I think ‘immediately’ is kind of open to interpretation,” she told the Capital-Journal.

The plans are not final, sources told Bloomberg. However, the meeting could take place either before the July 11 NATO summit in Belgium or after Trump visits the United Kingdom on July 13.

    The Department of Justice (DOJ) has reportedly asked the Pentagon to provide military lawyers to help prosecute illegal immigration cases along the southern border. MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow reported Wednesday night that the DOJ requested active-duty Judge Advocate Generals (JAGs) be dispatched to border states to assist with the influx of illegal immigration cases. Maddow said the JAGs will serve six-month shifts as special assistant U.S. attorneys in Arizona, Texas and New Mexico. The Defense Department has agreed to the request, Maddow reported.

    Arizona Republican Sen. Jeff Flake halted an appeals court nominee last week and he's not publicly saying why, a behind-the-scenes move that takes aim at one of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's top legislative priorities this year. The Senate Judiciary Committee scuttled a planned vote June 14 on the nomination of Britt Grant, a pick from Georgia for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit. Flake's hold throws a cog in what has been the Senate GOP's smoothly operating judicial confirmation machine. "Oh, it's just something I'm working out," Flake said Tuesday, without offering any more details. The typically media-friendly senator did say his reason didn't have anything to do with Grant herself. The move has not gone over well with Sen. Johnny Isakson, who said he confronted Flake but doesn't know the reason for the hold. "It's an indiscriminate, irresponsible use of a privilege of the Senate," the Georgia Republican said.

    Sen. Jeff Flake is warning that he may block votes on the nominations of all of President Donald Trump's pending appellate court nominees unless he gets favorable action on two issues unrelated to the judiciary.According to one source, Flake wants to spur discussions on travel restrictions to Cuba as well as issues related to tariffs. "We're discussing it," the Arizona Republican said in a brief interview with CNN as he came out of an immigration negotiation. Flake sits on the Judiciary Committee, where Republicans have a slim 11-10 advantage over Democrats. If he does not relent, he could bring the work of the powerful committee to a halt as it applies to appellate court nominees, who are often voted out on party lines. Confirming these influential circuit court nominees has been a top priority and bragging point for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Trump. So far, the Senate has pushed through an unprecedented number of appeals court nominees. Indeed, McConnell tweeted publicly in January: "@potus was able to seat more Circuit Court judges in the 1st year of his presidency than anyone in history." On Wednesday night, Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, an Iowa Republican, acknowledged that if Flake moved to block the nominees, his hands could be tied. Grassley told CNN he will not schedule votes on these nominees until Flake's issues are resolved and he is on board. "If it is a controversial one, we probably would have to have all 11 Republicans. So if one Republican wouldn't vote, and it's 10 to 10, then we're not going to take it up," he said. But Grassley added that the Senate nominations calendar is so full right now he doesn't feel any pressure for the Judiciary Committee to move anyone out until September. "I could probably wait for a month to vote any more judges out, so there is nothing immediately of concern to me as far as the work of the committee is concerned," he said.

    The French-German plan to overhaul the euro zone received its first objection Wednesday from Poland -- one of the countries most concerned it will get left behind. The government in Warsaw, which hasn’t set a date to adopt the single currency, signaled it will oppose plans to carve out a separate budget only for those nations that share the euro. Poland and other countries that have held on to their zloty, forint, and koruna have resisted steps that they say will lead to a "two-speed Europe." While the proposals for an exclusive euro-member spending plan won’t be defined until December, the concept may play a central role in negotiations in reworking the wider EU budget for the fiscal period that starts after 2020. Poland is already at the center of that debate, both because it’s the biggest net beneficiary of EU development funds and also since it’s been accused by the bloc of eroding the rule of law. “We don’t know the details as to when it will be introduced and how it would be financed, but plans to create another budget within the EU budget are clearly a concern,” Polish Finance Minister Teresa Czerwinska said in Warsaw. Investment Minister Jerzy Kwiecinski said all EU members must back the bloc’s next budget and that talks would take “many months.” More at: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-06-20/biggest-eu-aid-case-raises-early-objection-to-merkel-macron-plan?cmpId=yhoo.headline&yptr=yahoo

    The Vatican has asked retired Washington, D.C., Archbishop Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, to cease public ministry after finding he was credibly accused of sexually abusing a teenager almost 50 years ago, the archdiocese and McCarrick said on Wednesday.McCarrick is among the highest-ranking of the more than 6,700 U.S. Roman Catholic clerics to be accused of sexually abusing children since the church's sex abuse scandal broke in 2002, according to BishopAccountability.org, a private group that tracks the allegations. McCarrick, 87, was accused of sexually abusing a teenager when he was a priest in New York, he said in a statement. He said he was innocent, but an investigation by the Church found the allegations to be credible and substantiated, the archdiocese said in a statement.

    Hungary’s parliament has passed a law that mandates prison for anyone helping illegal immigrants enter the country or claim asylum. Under the “Stop Soros” law, named after Hungarian billionaire and open-borders advocate George Soros, individuals aiding migrants in the asylum process or “providing financial property or benefit” will be liable for a year-long prison sentence. “The Hungarian people rightfully expects the government to use all means necessary to combat illegal immigration and the activities that aid it,” Interior Minister Sandor Pinter wrote Wednesday. “The STOP Soros package of bills serves that goal, making the organization of illegal immigration a criminal offense. We want to use the bills to stop Hungary from becoming a country of immigrants.” Prime Minister Viktor Orban has vowed to eject Soros NGO’s from the country, saying “Soros and his ‘army’ ideological motivation is a multicultural Europe” and that “they do not like the traditions of Christian Europe.” “They want to ruin Europe because they are hoping to make large profits in the process,” he said. “That is just what financial speculators are like.” More at: https://www.infowars.com/hungary-passes-stop-soros-law-criminalizing-aid-to-illegal-migrants/

    Twitter and other online platforms are shutting down efforts to reveal the names of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) employees following the backlash against the Trump administration’s zero-tolerance policy at the U.S.-Mexico border. Developer Sam Lavigne, who claims to be an adjunct professor at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, created a database on GitHub that revealed the names of more than 1,500 ICE agents — with the data scraped from the LinkedIn business networking site. In a now-deleted Medium post, Lavigne justified the database, saying, “As ICE continues to ramp up its inhumane surveillance and detention efforts, I believe it’s important to document what’s happening, and by whom, in any way we can.” But the blogging platform suspended the post detailing the information on the grounds of "doxxing" – the intentional publication of personal information -- Lavigne told the Verge. GitHub explained in a statement why it removed the information about ICE agents. “We removed the project because it violates our community guidelines,” a GitHub spokesperson said. “In general, we have policies against use of GitHub for doxxing and harassment, and violating a third party’s privacy.”

    Both Ankara and the Pentagon are set to complete a deal for F-35s, ignoring a decision by US lawmakers to torpedo the shipment of 100 fighter jets to Turkey. Their opinion doesn’t matter, Ankara has said. “Necessary contacts have been made with the US, and delivery of the F-35 jets will be on Thursday,” Turkey’s Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag told reporters on Wednesday, two days after the US Senate voted overwhelmingly to block the deal. Senators chose to call off the long-expected sale, citing Ankara’s plans to buy S-400 surface-to-air missile batteries from Russia, and the detention of an American citizen. The same decision had earlier been made by the House of Representatives, but the bill is yet to be signed by the president. The vote in Congress does “not hold values for us,” another Turkish deputy PM, Hakan Cavusoglu, stated. “We will also definitely take the F-35s,” he said. Ankara’s defiant stance is in tune with the Pentagon, which confirmed that the first jets will indeed be handed over on June 21. The manufacturer of the aircraft, Lockheed Martin, “will hold a rollout ceremony for Turkey this Thursday in Fort Worth, and the two jets will follow-on to Luke Air Force Base in Arizona at a later date,” Pentagon spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Mike Andrews told CNN.

    Angela Merkel appears to have caved in to Donald Trump with Germany considering scrapping the European Union’s 10 percent tax on American car imports. President Trump’s ambassador to Germany, Richard Grenell, has held high-level talks with German car makers BMW and Volkswagen about dropping car tariffs between the US and Germany. The manufacturers said they were open to the idea of dropping tariffs as long as it was part of a larger overall industrial scheme.

    Recent TEDx Talks independent speaking events have featured guests promoting pedophile acceptance in society. The TED organization distanced itself from one event Tuesday, which featured a German medical student at the University of Würzburg in a lecture entitled, “Why our perception of pedophilia has to change.” In the independently organized event, which took place May 5, student Mirjam Heine discussed how pedophiles should be accepted by society, but must also be encouraged not to act on their sexual desires. Using the story of “Jonas,” a pedophile she encountered only attracted to female children between ages 6 through 12, Heine attempts to draw a distinction between people who sexually abuse children and pedophiles who do not abuse children. “Let me be very clear here: abusing children is wrong without any doubt, but a pedophile who doesn’t abuse children has done nothing wrong,” Heine says. The speaker claims society’s exclusion and isolation of pedophiles may instead encourage them to commit child sex abuse. “According to current research, pedophilia is an unchangeable sexual orientation just like, for example, heterosexuality. No one chooses to be a pedophile. No one can cease being one.” “It is in our responsibility to reflect and to overcome our negative feelings about pedophiles and to treat them with the same respect we treat other people with.”
