  • Justice Sonia Sotomayor says she thought about hitting Antonin Scalia with baseball bat

    New York Daily News ^ | 10/18/2016 | Christopher Brennan
    Sonia Sotomayor said her fellow Supreme Court justice´s comments sometimes left her wanting to dispense rough justice with sporting equipment. “There are things he’s said on the bench where if I had a baseball bat, I might have used it,” the Bronx-born judge said of her late colleague Antonin Scalia on Monday. Scalia was a longtime leader of the Court’s conservative wing, often on the opposite side of Sotomayor on issues such as gay marriage and affirmative action after she was appointed by President Obama in 2009.

    President Barack Obama floated the notion of a test for media organizations, griping about the wide-spread existence of alternative media available in America. He was critical of the current Wild West online environment where people could say anything on social media or on news websites. “We are going to have to rebuild within this wild-wild-west-of-information flow some sort of curating function that people agree to,” he said. Throughout his presidency, Obama has repeatedly complained about the existence of Fox News and Rush Limbaugh, causing division amongst Americans and making his job difficult, but he rarely offers a solution. This time,...

    The United States on Friday criticized Israeli policies in Judea and Samaria during a UN Security Council discussion on the issue. The meeting, titled "Illegal Israeli Settlements: Obstacles to Peace and the Two-State Solution," was informal and did not involve a vote. It was held at the initiative of Egypt, Venezuela, Malaysia, Senegal and Angola. The U.S. representative to the session, Deputy U.S. Ambassador to the UN David Pressman, said Washington is "deeply concerned and strongly opposes settlements which are corrosive to peace," according to Haaretz. Pressman added that Israeli activities in Judea and Samaria, primarily construction of new communities,...

    State Department officials are set to publish a few hundred pages of Hillary Clinton's deleted emails mid-Friday afternoon, although some may be duplicates or near-duplicates of records already released by the agency. The emails are among the 5,600 work-related emails recovered by the FBI during its year-long probe of Clinton's server. The former secretary of state's staff deleted those records off her server before handing over 30,000 emails to the State Department in 2014, claiming the deleted documents were personal in nature. Roughly half of the deleted emails are copies of records included in the original batch of 30,000. That...

    Over the past few weeks, we've written frequently about allegations of voter fraud from around the country. The key swing state of Virginia, in particular, seems to be a hotbed of potential corruption as evidenced by the actions of 19 year old "Young Virginia Democrat", Andrew Spieles, who allegedly acted alone to re-register a bunch of dead voters in his home state (see our post here). Then there were the efforts of Virginia's governor, and long-time Clinton confidant, Terry McAuliffe to register 200,000 felons to vote. But Virginia, isn't the only state with questionable voter registration practices. Fraudulent voter registrations...

    MOSCOW–Russia further curtailed its cooperation with the United States in nuclear energy on Wednesday, suspending a research agreement and terminating one on uranium conversion, two days after the Kremlin shelved a plutonium pact with Washington. It also said it was terminating for the same reasons an agreement between its nuclear corporation Rosatom and the U.S. Department of Energy on feasibility studies into conversion of Russian research reactors to low-enriched uranium. On Monday, President Vladimir Putin suspended a treaty with Washington on cleaning up weapons grade plutonium, signaling he is willing to use nuclear disarmament as a new bargaining chip in...

    The US government, much to the chagrin of Senator Ted Cruz, is set to officially relinquish the Department of Commerce's oversight of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) as of tomorrow night at midnight. ICANN is a California nonprofit that has supervised website domains since 1998, essentially under subcontract from the Commerce Department. Under the Obama transition plan oversight by the U.S. Commerce Department would end and be replaced by a multi-stakeholder community, which would include the technical community, businesses, civil society and governments. Cruz had attempted to block the internet transition by tying the recently passed...

    President Barack Obama expressed his disappointment on Wednesday with Congress, which voted overwhelmingly to overturn his presidential veto on a bill that would allow families of terrorist victims to sue foreign nations. The Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA) will allow the families of 9/11 victims to seek restitution by suing Saudi Arabia, where the vast majority of the hijackers hailed from. It passed Congress unanimously, but Obama had expressed his intention to veto it, which he did on Friday. The Senate voted Wednesday 97-1 to override Obama’s veto, and the House voted likewise 348-77, effectively passing the bill...

Leon Rodriguez, director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, could not deny that in many cases there is no data from the refugee’s home country that would corroborate or refute his story. He tried to reassure the committee by saying the screening process is lengthy and continuously being improved, noting that the United Nations pre-screens the refugees before his...

Gowdy wondered what other evidence was needed to prosecute Clinton if all that had been revealed in the federal investigation was not enough as he grilled Comey on the question of intent. Comey noted that intent could be proved by looking at whether a person...

    Protests in Charlotte turned violent for a third night when police in riot gear used pepper spray on demonstrators who blocked a highway. Officers stormed a line of protesters who had formed a human chain on I-277 and blocked traffic. The cops batted them with their shields and pushed them off the road, spraying their faces with pepper spray. A dozen of the demonstrators were hit and were unable to open their eyes as they screamed: 'It burns!' The protesters had come prepare and had milk in spray bottles which helps overcome the efforts of pepper spray. One girl sat...

    ( - The director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on Thursday defended her agency’s decision to return $113 million in funds allocated for the detention and removal of illegal immigrants in FY 2015. “Your organization operates with limited resources, and yet, in fiscal year 2015, you gave back to the Department of Homeland Security $113 million in funds that were specifically appropriated for detention and removal. Why did you give this money back given the problems that were decided by Mr. Smith and the fact as Mr. Conyers noted you have limited resources to begin with?” House Judiciary Chairman...

    An internal Obama administration email shows immigration officials may be literally working overtime to swear in as many new “citizen voters” as possible before the Nov. 8 presidential election, a powerful lawmaker charged Thursday. The email, from a U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services field office chief and part of a chain of correspondence within the agency, urges the unnamed recipient to swear in as many citizens as possible “due to the election year.” “The Field Office due to the election year needs to process as many of their N-400 cases as possible between now and FY 2016,” reads the email,...

    Gen. Joseph Dunford, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said Thursday that it would be a bad idea to share intelligence with Russia on the conflict in Syria. “The U.S. military role will not include intelligence sharing with the Russians,” Dunford told lawmakers on the Senate Armed Services Committee at a hearing on U.S. national security challenges and ongoing military operations. “I do not believe it would be a good idea to share intelligence with the Russians.” The comments by the highest-ranking military officer Thursday morning are out of step with the Obama administration’s latest efforts to solve...

    The White House said Thursday that protesters angered by the fatal police shooting of a black man in Charlotte, North Carolina, are raising “legitimate” concerns about racial disparities in the criminal-justice system. “Those are difficult questions that must be confronted,” said White House press secretary Josh Earnest. “They cannot be ignored.” After a second night of rioting and confrontations with police in Charlotte, President Obama spoke by phone Thursday with North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory to receive an update on the situation. Mr. Earnest said the president wants authorities to ensure the safety of protesters.

    Treasury Secretary Jack Lew said Thursday that the administration has not seen evidence that Iran's financial support for terrorism has grown since the U.S. paid the regime $1.7 billion in cash in January. "We have not seen an increase in terrorist financing by Iran," Lew told the House Financial Services Committee. But Lew also acknowledged that he wasn't aware if there was any way to trace how Iran uses the cash. Republicans pressed him on whether the U.S. recorded the serial numbers on the bills that were shipped to Iran, but Lew said he did not know. The U.S. arranged...

    Members of the House Oversight Committee voted Thursday to hold Hillary Clinton's former IT aide in contempt of Congress over his refusal to comply with a subpoena for documents and testimony. Bryan Pagliano, the aide who set up Clinton's private email server, failed to appear before the committee on Sept. 13 and declined to provide a copy of the immunity agreement given to him by the Justice Department during the year-long FBI investigation of Clinton's email network. "Subpoenas are not optional," said Rep. Jason Chaffetz, chairman of the Oversight Committee, at a hearing Thursday to consider Pagliano's fate. Pagliano worked...

    Left-wing pundits are slamming Donald Trump’s son for using the candy Skittles as a metaphor for Syrian refugees and terrorism — but just a few years ago, these same liberals were more than happy to use bite-sized candy as an illustration of “rape culture” in the U.S.A. Starting Monday night, the left went wild when Donald Trump, Jr., posted a graphic that stated, “If I had a bowl of skittles and I told you just three would kill you. Would you take a handful?” The image then turned the point to the current crisis saying, “That’s our Syrian refugee problem.”
  • UC Berkeley Rescinds Suspension of Controversial ‘Antisemitic Anti-Israel’ Course Without Any

    A controversial “anti-Zionism” class at the University of California, Berkeley (UC Berkeley) was reinstated on Monday without any substantial changes to the course material, The Algemeiner has learned. Despite claims by UC Berkeley officials that the syllabus of “Palestine: A Settler Colonial Analysis” underwent revision, a close examination of the new syllabus by The Algemeiner reveals only minor changes and that the same anti-Israel literature will be studied as previously listed. In addition, the language of the course description was modified to remove the admission that the course would be “exploring the possibility of decolonization,” as originally stated. It now...
