Palm Beach County Judge Joseph Marx ruled Monday that prosecutors can’t use the surveillance footage from Orchids of Asia day spa as evidence in the trials against two masseuses. Lei Wang, 40, and Hua Zhang, 58, face more than a dozen charges after they were allegedly taped providing sexual services to clients, including the 77-year-old New England Patriots owner. Both have pleaded not guilty.
Trump’s lawyers argued at a May 14 hearing that U.S. District Judge Amit Mehta should block the committee’s subpoena because it was pursuing a law enforcement function, which is the responsibility of the executive branch, rather than a legislative function. Mehta ruled that courts must presume that Congress is acting in its constitutional responsibility to legislate, such as in amending penalties for violating ethics disclosure laws and for monitoring the president’s compliance with the emoluments clause in the Constitution, which prohibits a president from receiving payments from foreigners.
Currently, states looking to begin work on public shooting ranges must match federal government grant funds to the tune of 25 cents on the dollar. The range bill signed by Trump this month drops the matching formula to 90/10 while also allowing funds to accrue for up to five years – up from two...

The Supreme Court upheld a Native American man’s hunting rights under a 150-year-old treaty. Crow tribe member Clayvin Herrera was charged in 2014 for off-season hunting in the Bighorn National Forest in Wyoming but argued that a treaty signed in 1868 between the tribe and Wyoming allowed him to hunt any time of the year.
“Today on an issue that is not only of vital importance to our country, but to the world – we say to Donald Trump and the fossil fuel industry that climate change is not a hoax, that climate change is one of the great threats to this country and the planet, that climate change is caused by human behavior and that the scientists tell us that we have all of 12 years to aggressively go forward and transform our energy system, unless – we are going to see disastrous results and damage to this country and the world. Irreparable damage is the term they use,” Sanders said.
But didn't Bernie's protegee Occasional-Cortex say that if we took the "world ending in 12 years" literally we'd have to have the social intelligence of a sea sponge?
An anon on 8chan found a lawsuit filing for Plaintiff: M.D. Richard Arjun Kaul vs Defendant: Allstate Insurance Company, Gannet Co., Inc., Senator Charles E. Schumer, Gibbons, PC, Geico and TD Bank, NA. After a quick search we found the same plaintiff also sued Chris Christie and Others of racketeering, mail fraud and wire fraud back in 2016.

Why does China have a clear advantage in this area? Simple: the U.S. relies on China, the dominant global supplier, for about 80% of its rare earths imports. The visit “sends a warning signal to the U.S. that China may use rare earths as a retaliation measure as the trade war heats up,” said Pacific Securities analyst Yang Kunhe. That could include curbs on rare earth exports to the U.S., he said...
Here's the thing though; Rare earths are not rare. The US can get them from Mexico and other suppliers as well mining them from domestic sources. The cost of rare earths then would increase, but the Chinese suppliers would lose market share - thus it would not be decisive matter in the trade war.
In color and composition, Ultima Thule resembles many other objects found in its area of the Kuiper Belt. It’s very red – redder even than much larger, 1,500-mile (2,400-kilometer) wide Pluto, which New Horizons explored at the inner edge of the Kuiper Belt in 2015 – and is in fact the reddest outer solar system object ever visited by spacecraft; its reddish hue is believed to be caused by modification of the organic materials on its surface New Horizons scientists found evidence for methanol, water ice, and organic molecules on Ultima Thule’s surface – a mixture very different from most icy objects explored previously by spacecraft.
Ecuadorian officials are travelling to London to allow US prosecutors to “help themselves” to items including legal papers, medical records and electronic equipment, it was claimed.
