For our Instagram Friend that requested we feature some polls:
Although most - if not all polls - don't reflect reality accurately, we can deduce some basic conclusions. Anyway, no matter which poll we look at, it seems the country is split down the middle in agreeing to a border wall. You will find some polls that have heavily polled more people on one end of the political spectrum than another, while the same can be true for the other side of how it's presented. For example, some polls take more data from Democrat voters than Independents and Republicans. While the other side writes sensational titles such as: "Support for Border Wall at Record High", even though "record high" means higher than before but still low. Regardless, let's see some polls that are currently making the rounds right now.
There are more polls out there we can include, such as Fox poll or CNN poll, but what good is that if the person reading this is going to start pointing fingers at the extra strong bias from them. Which we agree.
As for Trump building a wall using a "National Emergency" premise, we have an opinion on that. We believe Trump will avoid building the wall on "national emergency" grounds because if he does without bipartisan support, it will seem very dictatorial and the narrative will be that he built it on the feet of a divided nation. Trump doesn't want division. Building on "national emergency" grounds will get the wall knocked down if DEMs ever take power again. If Trump can get bi-partisan support, then the wall won't come down when DEMs eventually come back to power again. It's really the only way the wall stays and Trump doesn't build it by "dividing a nation". But we'll see, maybe Trump anticipates this and the wall will be up for just enough years where most of the problems are cleared up. Depends on the strategy. Building a wall on the feet of a divided nation will project an image of instability to the rest of the world. What would the global reaction be to an unstable US? Not good. An unstable US is not good for business. Our generals and Trump will try to avoid building the wall using "National Emergency" as a premise, and instead, Trump will negotiate his way through and add another win under his belt that way. After all, even though he has the constitutional authority to get the wall built without congressional approval, Trump himself even said he'd like to get it done with support from both sides. In fact, he specifically said, "the ONLY solution is for Democrats to pass a spending bill that defends our borders".
I'm still of the camp that WikiLeaks is compromised, but their decision to tweet about the US State Dept's involvement with pineal glands of penguins is interesting. People have been discussing this leak for a couple of years now. What do you think WikiLeaks is up to?
According to data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the U.S. is still sitting on a massive surplus of cheese.
Even though Americans consumed nearly 37 pounds of cheese per capita in 2017, it still wasn’t enough to reduce the country’s more than 1.4 billion pounds of cheese surplus that’s currently sitting in cold storage.
According to NPR, the stockpile isn’t new, it’s just continuing to build due to the rapid pace of milk production exceeding consumption over the past 10 years. Since 2008, milk production has increased by more than 13 percent but overall consumption has rapidly decreased since the late 1970s, forcing suppliers to turn extra milk into cheese instead, as it’s less perishable.
The dean of UC Berkeley School of Law has decided to strip the name of an early benefactor of the school off one of its buildings and stop its use with organizations and student activities because of anti-Chinese immigration beliefs the benefactor held in the 1800s.
Dean Erwin Chemerinsky recently made the decision to officially stop using the Boalt name in connection with the law school, but still plans to honor Boalt’s wife’s legacy in some fashion.
Concerns over John Boalt’s legacy at Berkeley stemmed from Boalt’s authoring of an 1877 paper titled “The Chinese Question.” The paper advocated for limiting Chinese immigration to the United States.
Last year, four of the largest U.S. cell carriers were caught selling and sending real-time location data of their customers to shady companies that sold it on to big spenders, who would use the data to track anyone “within seconds” for whatever reason they wanted.
Now, new reporting by Motherboard shows that while LocationSmart faced the brunt of the criticism, few focused on the other big player in the location-tracking business, Zumigo. A payment of $300 and a phone number was enough for a bounty hunter to track down the participating reporter by obtaining his location using Zumigo’s location data, which was continuing to pay for access from most of the carriers.
Worse, Zumigo sold that data on — like LocationSmart did with Securus — to other companies, like Microbilt, a Georgia-based credit reporting company, which in turn sells that data on to other firms that want that data
“The employer did not have the required workers’ compensation coverage from March 31, 2018, to April 30, 2018, and was issued a final penalty of $1,500, which was paid,” said Workers Compensation Board spokeswoman Melissa Stewart.
“This coverage is vital to ensuring workers are protected for on-the-job injuries.”
The charred remains of 21 people killed in a suspected gang battle have been found in a Mexican border town, just over the river from where U.S. President Donald Trump was seeking to win support on Thursday for his plan to build a border wall.
Officials in the notoriously violent border state of Tamaulipas said they were investigating the incident, which took place in Ciudad Miguel Aleman, after discovering the bodies on Wednesday. Seventeen of the bodies were burned.
...according to the science journal Nature, something strange is going on deep down below. It’s causing the magnetic North Pole to ‘skitter’ away from Canada, towards Siberia. “The magnetic pole is moving so quickly that it has forced the world’s geomagnetism experts into a rare move,” Nature reports.
Thursday, a federal bankruptcy court in Illinois finished paying $11.25 million to 27 people who got E. coli in the 2017 I.M. Healthy Soy Nut Butter outbreak.
While that sounds significant and averages $416,666.67 per person, the court-appointed evaluator put the gross damages over $69 million. Struck by lawsuits, the total product recall by I.M. Healthy and the FDA shutdown of third-party manufacturer Dixie Dew Products after several disgusting factory inspections, both I.M. Healthy and Kentucky-based Dixie Dew filed Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
The precise nature and origin of the blasts of radio waves is unknown. Among the 13 fast radio bursts, known as FRBs, was a very unusual repeating signal, coming from the same source about 1.5 billion light years away. Such an event has only been reported once before, by a different telescope. "Knowing that there is another suggests that there could be more out there," said Ingrid Stairs, an astrophysicist from the University of British Columbia (UBC). And with more repeaters and more sources available for study, we may be able to understand these cosmic puzzles - where they're from and what causes them."
Former Nissan Motor Chairman Carlos Ghosn was served a new indictment in Tokyo on Friday for breach of trust and underreporting his income.
Ghosn's legal team is expected to apply for bail later on Friday. The embattled executive has denied all allegations since he was arrested in November, and spoke in his own defense in court on Tuesday.
The Tokyo District Public Prosecutors Office argues Ghosn breached trust by transferring about 1.85 billion yen ($17 million) in personal losses from foreign exchange contracts to Nissan. The allegation also covers Ghosn's payment of 1.6 billion yen in company funds to a Saudi acquaintance from 2009 to 2012.
Given these changes, resurrecting the old order will be impossible. It would also be insufficient, thanks to the emergence of new challenges... For the United States to heed that warning would mean strengthening certain aspects of the old order and supplementing them with measures that account for changing power dynamics and new global problems. The United States would have to shore up arms control and nonproliferation agreements; strengthen its alliances in Europe and Asia; bolster weak states that cannot contend with terrorists, cartels, and gangs; and counter authoritarian powers’ interference in the democratic process. Yet it should not give up trying to integrate China and Russia into regional and global aspects of the order.
[...] The United States also needs to reach out to others to address problems of globalization, especially climate change, trade, and cyber-operations. These will require not resurrecting the old order but building a new one. Efforts to limit, and adapt to, climate change need to be more ambitious. The WTO must be amended to address the sorts of issues raised by China’s appropriation of technology, provision of subsidies to domestic firms, and use of nontariff barriers to trade. Rules of the road are needed to regulate cyberspace.
The United States must show restraint and recapture a degree of respect in order to regain its reputation as a benign actor. This will require some sharp departures from the way U.S. foreign policy has been practiced in recent years.
[...] A new democratic, rules-based order fashioned and led by medium powers in Europe and Asia, as well as Canada, however attractive a concept, would simply lack the military capacity and domestic political will to get very far. A more likely alternative is a world with little order—a world of deeper disarray. Protectionism, nationalism, and populism would gain, and democracy would lose. Conflict within and across borders would become more common, and rivalry between great powers would increase. Cooperation on global challenges would be all but precluded. If this picture sounds familiar, that is because it increasingly corresponds to the world of today.
Sounds like the Council On Foreign Relations is against Trump and the NEWer World Order. They're really pushing for an older liberal world order and they can't stand it, so they justify their dislike of current changes with a pessimistic approach - one that runs counter and threatens their status as the machinists of global rule. Their denial of bi-lateral trade agreements as a stabilization mechanism for global order is not surprising as they prefer an unelected global technocratic elite managing global sovereigns through an overarching institution. Too bad.
Wisconsin teen Jayme Closs -- found alive Thursday after a three-month disappearance -- was targeted by a 21-year-old man authorities think she'd never met, who suddenly showed up at her home, killed her parents and held her captive for 88 excruciating days, officials revealed Friday.
The suspect in the teen's disappearance was identified as 21-year-old Jake Thomas Patterson, of Gordon. He was charged with two counts of first-degree intentional homicide in the murder of Closs's parents and one count of kidnapping. Authorities said Patterson surrendered peacefully and was arrested "just down the road from the residence." His first court appearance has not been scheduled.
On Thursday, the 13-year-old Closs was able to escape from a cabin before flagging down a person walking a dog in Gordon and asked for help. Jeanne Nutter, the woman who first spotted Closs told the Associated Press she "was terrified" but wanted to "get her to a safe place." She recalled the teen looked disheveled, dirty and thin. She also noted Closs was wearing shoes too big for her feet.
