  • A Secret Senate Impeachment Vote Would Be Outrageous

    A president's removal from office is one of the most solemn responsibilities afforded to Congress. It cuts to the heart of the relationship between the citizenry and their representatives, the act of voting, and the principle that no person is above the law.Those principles inform why I deeply disagree with former GOP adviser Juleanna Glover's argument on Tuesday that the Senate should introduce a rule change to allow senators to cast secret impeachment votes. Writing for Politico, Glover asks, "What if senators could vote on impeachment by secret ballot? If they didn’t have to face backlash from constituents or the media or the...
  • The secret to better beer could lie in cell signaling networks

    10/26/2019 12:56:36 PM PDT · by LibWhacker · 25 replies
    One of the oldest and most successful human endeavors is the fermentation of cereal-based mush to create an ethanol-rich liquid. In other words, beer-making. At the heart of this process is yeast, a single-celled fungus that does all the heavy lifting for brewers. It is so important that beer makers have learned to collect the yeast from the fermented liquid and reuse it in the next round. This trick, called serial repitching, saves both time and money. However, after several generations, the quality of the yeast begins to drop. This impairs fermentation and introduces off flavors that ruin the beer....

    **SNIP** The official House impeachment inquiry, in its open contempt for even basic due process, makes the Faber trial climactic scene (3:18) seem like dj vu all over again. The White Houses October 8 letter to key House leaders lists the due-process rights denied the president: (a) to be apprised of laws allegedly violated and all evidence produced, including exculpatory evidence, plus being given full access to evidence that impeaches the credibility of prosecution witnesses; (b) to confront and cross-examine prosecution witnesses; (c) to call defense witnesses and introduce defense evidence; (d) to make objections to witness examinations and admissibility...

    Impeachment will uncover the truth, House Financial Services Committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters, a California Democrat, tweeted Tuesday. But a decision by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to hand off the impeachment inquiry to the Intelligence Committee means key parts of the inquiry will be kept secret. The House Intelligence Committee, led by Chairman Adam Schiff, is scheduled on Friday to interview Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael K. Atkinson. Atkinson is one of the most important witnesses in the impeachment inquiry. He conducted the initial review into a whistleblower allegation that President Trump asked Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate corruption allegations...

    A recent wave of store closure announcements will hit shopping malls across the U.S., leaving hundreds of storefronts empty. Just this week, Victoria's Secret said it will shut around 50 locations in 2019 when it normally closes closer to a dozen each year; Gap said it's closing 230 of its namesake brand's stores over a two-year span; and J.C.

    If Mueller's witch hunt is dumb enough to try and take down Trump by claiming that hush money paid to the two women was a campaign finance law violation, then Mueller must also go after all the Congressmen who secretly used taxpayer funds to silence claims against them of sexual harassment. Such a secret use of taxpayer funds is also embezzlement and they all should be prosecuted.

    Almost everything we know about what actually happened in the Saudi Consulate comes from the Turks. Make that everything we know. And make that what we think we know. One thing is certain at this point. The US-based Saudi journalist Jamal Kashoggi is dead. The rest, down to how long it took for the Saudi executioners to kill him seven minutes we have from Turkish sources. Now ask yourself why are the Turks so determined to be so informative? The regime in Ankara is hardly a champion of human rights for journalists. Hardly a paragon of selfless...

    **SNIP** Similarly, a DHS document published in April noted the value of granting security clearances to those who own and operative private companies tied to the nation's critical infrastructure, including power companies, chemical plants, water utility firms and phone companies. "With clearances, these owners, operators, and representatives can access classified information to make more informed decisions," the DHS document said. The U.S. government also grants security clearance to private-sector security operatives protecting U.S. interests overseas, to senior bank officials looking to protect Americans savings accounts from foreign hackers, and to high-level officials at hotel chains who spend every day trying...

    Wall Street Journal ^ | July 29, 2018 | Sean Bigley
    The White House announced last week that President Trump was considering revoking the security clearances of six former intelligence officials. Law and policy support such revocations, but as the swift and negative reaction in Washington showed, the president must take a nuanced approach. The legal framework for security clearances was charted by a 1988 Supreme Court decision, Department of the Navy v. Egan. The justices noted that a president has absolute power to grant, deny or revoke access to classified information. This authority is inherent in his role as commander in chief. The court ruled that the president could form...

    We finally see the study that was oddly classified on arrival and it has new relevance based on Japan's desire for a new stealth fighter. Finally, in early 2016, the debate surrounding the need for more F-22s came to a head and study was mandated by Congress for the USAF to research what putting the super-fighter back into production would take. That study was finished in late 2016 with some of its findings openly discussed, but the document itself remained classified, until now. Snip The total procurement cost would be between $40 and $42 billion, with the entire program costing...

    William Cathay enlisted in the United States Army on November 15th, 1866, in St. Louis, Missouri. Cathay signed upfor a three-year engagement and was assigned to the38th United States Infantry Regimentafter passing a medical examination. Shortly after enlisting, Cathay contracted smallpox and was hospitalized. When rejoining the 38th Infantry stationed inNew Mexico, Cathay was having problems due to the lingering effects of smallpox complicated by the New Mexico heat. Of course, as anyone in the infantry can attest to, marching in the heat takes a toll on a person. Coupled with the effects of smallpox, Cathay was hospitalized more often...
