John Lewis: Trump Not a ‘Legitimate President’

quote [ Speaking with Chuck Todd, in a Meet the Press interview set to air this Sunday, the civil-rights icon asserted that while he would like to forgive and work with the new president, “it’s going to be very difficult,” because “I don’t see this president-elect as a legitimate president.” Pressed on that point, the congressman said, “I think the Russians participated in helping this man get elected. And they helped destroy the candidacy of Hillary Clinton.” Lewis also stated that he will not attend Trump’s inauguration. “It will be the first one that I miss since I’ve been in Congress, you cannot be at home with something that you feel that is wrong.” ]

Trump thinks John Lewis is "All talk, no action."

Justice Department inspector general to investigate pre-election actions by department and FBI

quote [ The Justice Department inspector general will review broad allegations of misconduct involving FBI Director James B. Comey and how he handled the probe of Hillary Clinton’s email practices, the inspector general announced Thursday.

The investigation will be wide ranging — encompassing Comey’s various letters and public statements on the matter and whether FBI or other Justice Department employees leaked nonpublic information, according to a news release from Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz. ]

Of interest to historians, cuz the wine is spilt, we can't be unfucked.

Taiwan Scrambles Jets, Navy as China Aircraft Carrier Enters Taiwan Strait

quote [ TAIPEI —

Taiwan scrambled jets and navy ships on Wednesday as a group of Chinese warships led by China's sole aircraft carrier sailed north through the Taiwan Strait,the latest sign of heightened tensions between Beijing and the self-ruled Taiwan.

The Soviet-built Liaoning aircraft carrier, returning from exercises in the South China Sea, was not trespassing in Taiwan's territorial waters but entered its air defense identification zone (ADIZ) in the southwest, Taiwan's defense
ministry said.

As a result Taiwan scrambled jets and navy ships to “surveil and control” the passage of the Chinese ships through the narrow body of water separating Taiwan and China. ]

Please, please, don't be a diversion from Pissgate.

Jury sentences Dylann Roof to death for Charleston church slayings

quote [ The self-described white supremacist says his deadly attack on black parishioners at a Bible study meeting in 2015 was not motivated by hatred of black people. ]

I don't favor the death penalty, but it seems to be part of this guy's plan.

The Senate just named a supporter of the Dakota pipeline to head its Indian Affairs committee

quote [ Hoeven — a former North Dakota governor and vocal supporter of both the Keystone XL and Dakota Access oil pipelines — was elected to lead the committee on Tuesday.

Sen. Hoeven's new job is ironic because he has repeatedly opposed causes that Native Americans support. The Dakota Access Pipeline is the most recent example. As thousands of protesters from across Indian Country converged on Cannon Ball, North Dakota, over the latter half of 2016 to block the pipeline's completion, Hoeven called the protests "violent" and asked President Barack Obama to deploy federal law enforcement to quell them. ]

tl/dr: US Senate says "Fuck you, Indians."

France introduces opt-out policy on organ donation

quote [ Change in law means consent for organs to be removed is presumed unless person joins official ‘refusal register’

The European Union has highlighted the lack of organs for transplant and the increasing number of patients on waitings lists worldwide. Its figures claim that in 2014, 86,000 people were waiting for organ donations in EU states, Norway and Turkey, and 16 people were dying every day while waiting for a transplant. ]

Improved auto safety means less organ recycling. Self-driving cars will only make it worse (see extended).

U.S. has ID'd Russians who gave hacked emails to WikiLeaks, source says

quote [ A senior U.S. intelligence official with direct knowledge confirmed to NBC News that the report on Russian hacking delivered to President Obama Thursday says the U.S. intercepted communications where senior Russian officials celebrated Donald Trump's win.
...
The source described the intelligence about the celebration, first reported by the Washington Post, as a minor part of the overall intelligence report, which makes the case that Russia intervened in the election.
...
The staffer, who has been briefed on the classified report, said that anyone who sees the evidence would be convinced. "What you will see is that there were evolving goals over time. At the end, they were trying to elect Trump," they said. ]

We'll see how much competing news can cover this up.

This will piss off some Norwegian drivers.

Apple Manufacturer Foxconn to Fully Replace Humans With Robots

quote [ The Taiwanese company that manufactures Apple’s iPhone has announced a three-part plan to fully automate its factories, with hopes to achieve 30% automation by 2020. The move could put as many as a million people out of work, another example of automation's major implications for the global workforce. ]

Soon, they can take down the suicide nets.

Who'll make Taiwan great again?

UFC 207 results: Ronda Rousey's fighting future looks to be over after being destroyed in 48 seconds by Amanda Nunes

quote [ Ronda Rousey's future in the UFC looked all but over in Las Vegas as the former women's bantamweight champion was blown away in 48 seconds by incumbent champion Amanda Nunes.

Fast heavy hands from Brazilian Nunes, a renowned vicious starter, stunned Rousey who was returning to the Octagon for the first time since her defeat 13 months ago against Holly Holm in a bid to reclaim her bantamweight crown. ]

Title says it all, really. 2015 most dominant female fighter on Earth, and trailblazer for women fighters, appears to be finished.
