.

.
Hong Kong police fired tear gas and water cannon on Saturday as pro-democracy protesters threw petrol bombs in the latest in a series of clashes that have plunged the Chinese-ruled city into its worst political crisis in decades.

Police fired round after round of tear gas as protesters took cover behind umbrellas between the local headquarters of China’s People’s Liberation Army and government HQ. Protesters also threw bricks at police.

The water cannon fired blue-dyed water, traditonally used elsewhere in the world to make it easier for police to identify protesters later. Riot police then marched on foot towards the neighbouring Admiralty district, followed by about 20 police cars…

Google To Settle FTC YouTube Investigation For Up To $200 Million – Daily Caller

Google agreed to pay $150 million to $200 million to settle an investigation by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) over YouTube’s alleged breach of a children’s privacy law, Politico reported Friday.

The FTC voted to approve the settlement 3-2 and sent it to the Justice Department for review, a source familiar with the matter told Politico.

The investigation came after The New York Times report on June 3 that YouTube’s algorithm essentially directed videos of children in bathing suits to users who watched other videos of prepubescent kids. The FTC received complaints that because of this, YouTube was in violation of the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), which prevents companies from tracking and targeting of users younger than 13.

“I think the message here is that when the [FTC] did have a privacy law to enforce, it refused to do so. The punishment should’ve been at least half-a-billion dollars…

$58,000 Reward Offered After More Than 40 Wild Burros Found Shot Dead In Mojave Desert – CBS News

Federal authorities have yet to track down the person or people responsible for the escalating amount of deaths of wild burros in California’s Mojave Desert. But they are hoping a $58,000 reward for information may help track them down.

Forty-two wild burros have been found illegally shot dead in northeast San Bernardino county since May. Activists and donors are now doubling down in their efforts to solve the crime.

The original reward was $10,000 but, thanks to new donations from conservation and animal welfare organizations, the reward has now risen to nearly $60,000, the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in California said Wednesday.

“Wild horses and burros are an iconic part of the American West and part of our national heritage,” said William Perry Pendley, the BLM’s Deputy Director for Policy and Program. “We will pursue every lead until we’ve arrested and prosecuted those responsible for these cruel, savage deaths…

Trump Administration Sanctions Hezbollah Terror Network In Blow To Iranian-Backed Group – Washington Free Beacon

The Trump administration on Thursday issued a new batch of sanctions on the Lebanese terror group Hezbollah in the latest salvo aimed at disrupting the Iranian-backed organization’s illicit funding and weapons networks, according to information provided by the State and Treasury Departments.

As Iran continues to ratchet up regional support for terror groups that have attacked American and allied forces, the Trump administration is moving to disrupt these terror groups by hitting them in their pocketbooks.

The latest sanctions target Lebanon’s Jammal Trust Bank SAL, which the Trump administration has identified as providing “illicit financial and banking activities” for Hezbollah.

The Trump administration has walked a tricky diplomatic line with Lebanon as it seeks to support the country’s legitimate military forces while attempting to ensure money and military hardware does not make its way to Hezbollah operatives…

“These are kids who come and they end up doing well. They become Americans before a lot of Americans become Americans. No, I’m serious. They go to school. They do well. They contribute to the community. They contribute to the country. So number one, we legalize DREAMers,” Biden said while campaigning in Rock Hill, S.C.

All 53 GOP Senators Sign SCOTUS Letter Accusing Democrats Of ‘Direct, Immediate Threat’ To Independence Of Judiciary – Law & Crime

All 53 Republican senators sent a letter to the Supreme Court on Thursday impelling the court not to be “cowed by the threats” in an amicus brief submitted by five Democratic Senators earlier in the month. The controversial brief implored the justices to drop a case pertaining to a New York City gun law or risk appearing politically influenced.

In their letter to the high court, Republicans said the amicus brief in questioned represented an existential threat to the independence of the Supreme Court.

“[O]ur colleagues did more than raise legal arguments in favor of mootness. They openly threatened this Court with political retribution if it failed to dismiss the petition as moot,” they wrote. “The implication is plain as day: Dismiss this case, or we’ll pack the Court.”…

WaPo Investigation Finds ‘Almost Every Detail’ Of Biden War Story False – Washington Free Beacon

A Washington Post investigation found that a war story frequently told by 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden on the campaign trail was false in nearly every detail.

At a Friday New Hampshire rally, Biden told the crowd that as vice president he had once been asked to travel to the dangerous Kunar province in Afghanistan to pin the Silver Star on a war hero who had rappelled down a steep wall to retrieve the body of a fallen comrade.

Biden said he ignored others who warned him not to go. “We can lose a vice president,” he remembered saying. “We can’t lose many more of these kids.”

In Biden’s telling, as he pinned the medal to the hero’s chest, the tearful Navy captain told Biden that he didn’t deserve the medal because he hadn’t saved his friend in time. “This is the God’s truth,” he told the audience. “My word as a Biden.”

Except it wasn’t. “Almost every detail in the story appears to be incorrect,” the Post reported Thursday…

On Wednesday, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) reprimanded the University of Vermont Medical Center (UVMMC) for forcing a Catholic nurse to assist in abortions after she had made her conscientious objections clear.

A further investigation found that the hospital had forced many other professionals to assist in abortions against their consciences. UVMMC has 30 days to change its policies or lose its federal funding.

Our client’s most fundamental beliefs about the sanctity of life were simply brushed aside,” Jay Sekulow, chief counsel at the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), said…

Pennsylvania House Ban On Nonbelievers Giving Opening Prayer Upheld By Appeals Court – Epoch Times

The ban on nonbelievers giving the opening prayer at sessions of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives does not violate the U.S. Constitution, a federal appeals court has ruled, declaring that “prayer presumes a higher power.”

The 2-1 ruling on Aug. 23 by the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upholds the policy of limiting prayers at the start of legislative sessions to guest chaplains who believe in God, in the divine, or a higher power, and to members of the House.

That policy – which is not limited to a particular religion – had been successfully challenged in a lower court last year, after a collection of atheists, agnostics, freethinkers, and humanists sued. That lower court ruling in August 2018 said that the restrictions violated constitutional prohibitions on making laws that establish a religion. The House appealed.

In overturning that judgment, 3rd Circuit judge Judge Thomas L. Ambro said that such a prohibition – the Establishment Clause in the First Amendment – did not apply…

Trump Goes After Another Obama-Era Reg As EPA Plans To Ease Rules Affecting Oil Companies – Daily Caller

The Environmental Protection Agency announced Thursday a plan to loosen federal rules governing methane emissions, a move that could be a boon for some energy providers and setback for environmentalists, the agency said in a statement.

The move will reverse standards set under President Barack Obama that require oil companies to install instruments on their pipelines and well heads that curb the release of methane, an emission researchers believe contributes to global warming. President Donald Trump spent his first two years eliminating scores of his predecessor’s environmental legacy.

Trump officials believe the fossil fuel industry has an incentive to limit methane because capturing it allows companies to sell more gas, officials told WaPo on the condition of anonymity…
