Mediaite Tries to “Make a Case For Droning Julian Assange”

Political news outlet, Mediaite, published an article making a case to take out Julian Assange with a drone as a “quick fix” solution. Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, and CIA Director, Mike Pompeo, are currently looking for ways to punish Assange for his relation to Wikileaks. John Levine, editor of Mediaite, suggested the Trump administration send a drone attack on Assange. “We can drone Julian Assange.” Levine writes. “In a controlled targeted strike, the United States can blow up the Ecuadorian embassy in London, where he currently resides, and put an end to Mr. Assange and Wikileaks.” Levine is not using dark humor, either. He actually attempted to justify his outrageous solution to drone Assange. “Now hear me out; I don’t use the “D-word” lightly. The fact is, Mr. Assange is no ordinary hacker, fleecing little old ladies or snatching R&D from Microsoft. He is a nefarious actor on the world stage. His disclosures have directly aided and abetted America’s international adversaries from Russia to ISIS, and his leaks have unquestionably made Americans and many others less safe around the world. Assange’s actions are not hacking, they are cyberterrorism — and they should be dealt with thusly.” Levine said, “Assange should be given an ultimatum,” and he should be droned if he refuses to surrender to British authorities, within 2 days. He also explained the cost effectiveness of his solution. “The British, which the BBC estimates have spent £12,000,000 on Assange related security costs, would likely be happy enough for any solution that gets rid of him. And since there is no risk of Assange escaping, negotiations between the U.S. and Ecuador...
Trump raises alarm on ObamaCare ‘death spiral’ as insurers flee

Trump raises alarm on ObamaCare ‘death spiral’ as insurers flee

by Fox News President Trump is reviving his effort to overhaul ObamaCare and reverse what he describes as the “death spiral,” as fresh figures show premiums soaring and the number of counties growing where there will soon be no insurance option under the program. While Attorney General Jeff Sessions testifies on the Russia probe Tuesday afternoon, Trump will be in Milwaukee discussing the health care push and meeting with so-called “victims” of the Affordable Care Act’s problems. Before that, the president is meeting with numerous Republican senators to discuss the status of repealing and replacing the law, according to a White House official. Trump set the stage for the meeting in a Tuesday morning tweet: “2 million more people just dropped out of ObamaCare. It is in a death spiral. Obstructionist Democrats gave up, have no answer = resist!” But so far, the victory Trump celebrated when ObamaCare repeal legislation passed the House has not come close to being replicated on the Senate side. The pressure is on Senate Republicans to try and move a bill before the Fourth of July recess, and it’s unclear where discussions stand. Asked about the status, Senate Health Committee Chairman Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., told Fox News, “I have nothing to say right now about health care.” Related: breaking-news-otto-warmbier-is-released-from-north-korea–update-warmbier-is-in-a-coma Yet the problem of rising premiums and fleeing insurers hasn’t gone away. According to the White House, individual market premiums more than doubled from 2013 to 2017. Applying pressure to Republican senators, the official noted that several states represented by those in Tuesday’s meeting saw premium increases well over 100 percent.

The Stages of Jihad: A Well-Organized Plan

The Stages of Jihad: A Well-Organized Plan

Prior to September 11, 2001, most Americans did not know much about Islam. It was a religion that was practiced mainly in the Middle East and was, for the most part, a mystery to many in the West. Since that time, with the rise of Al Qaeda, ISIS, and other terrorist organizations, the attacks have become increasingly bold and brazen, especially on western targets. Britain recently suffered its second attack in as many weeks, and as more of these attacks are carried out, the ideology behind them has become well-known, and unfortunately, all too familiar. As the number of Muslims immigrating to America has grown, communities all over the nation have attempted to welcome their new residents and make them feel at home. However, do these newcomers have any intention of assimilating into American life, or is there something more? Could there be an actual plan? In a 2013 article by David Wood in the Christian Research Journal, he outlined not only passages from the Quran, but also historical patterns, what happened when Muslims moved into an area, and the changes to that area over time. “…Peace and violence are separate stages of a larger Islamic Program, the ultimate goal of which is the violent subjugation of non-Muslims.” What Wood described are the stages of Jihad. When most people hear that word, they immediately think of violence, but Jihad does not begin there. It begins in a friendly, peaceful manner.

If you’ve noticed many seeming human traits in animals, you’ll want to read this

by Washington Post By Vicky Hallett Picture this scenario: You and a co-worker are given a task to complete. The co-worker occasionally pretends to do something but leaves you with all of the drudgery. Now imagine that your co-worker weighs several thousand pounds and has a trunk. That’s what happened to an Asian elephant in an experiment looking at social intelligence among animals, which researchers are learning is far more complex than previously thought. In addition to deception — like that lazy elephant — there are fascinating examples of cooperation. For instance, some dolphin moms in Australia teach their daughters to don a sea sponge on their snouts, allowing them to search the seafloor for fish without hurting their noses. You can read more about it in Scientific American’s “Secret Lives of Animals,” a special collector’s edition available on newsstands until July 10. Many of the articles highlight just how much humans have in common with other creatures. One praises the architectural genius of termites, which build towering mounds that circulate air and offer protection from enemies. Another explains how wasps can recognize individual faces. There’s an examination of same-sex couplings in the animal kingdom, which details several of the reasons these relationships can evolve.

It includes an anecdote about a giraffe giving birth to an infant with a deformed foot. The mom stays close to the baby, even though that means not foraging with her herd — and potentially putting her life at risk. When the young...
My Top Tips for Job Seekers

My Top Tips for Job Seekers

As a Care Manager, I counsel job seekers by assisting with resume creation or improvement, social media instruction,  like using LinkedIn and challenging them to see themselves through a potential employer’s eyes. Because an employment crisis may happen to anyone, here are some of the top tips that I share with job seekers: What do you want to be when you grow up?    I know from personal experience that many people have no idea, so I share my story with them: When my husband, Dennis, suggested that I needed to get a job, I was taken aback. This was a time of transition from being a homeschooling mom to contributing in a new way. The problem was that my season of parenting/teaching had been very fulfilling in contrast to the jobs I could already list on my resume. So, I decided to take some time to figure out what I wanted to be when I grew up. I found a book at the library called Do What You Are and after taking the personality test that it recommended, I came up with three options. Although the first two, counseling and teaching, didn’t surprise me, I realized that four years in college wouldn’t really help the financial situation. However, the third recommendation of graphic design surprised and intrigued me, mainly because I had never considered myself artistic. Since I could earn an Associates of Science Degree in just two years, I decided to pursue it. Related: the-worst-thing-that-could-possibly-happen-to-a-parent I was delighted to find that armed with a computer and Adobe Creative Suite software, I could be successfully and enjoyably employed as a graphic artist! Eventually, I opened...
