About The Author...
I'm afraid that this discussion is exactly what the Democrats want: dead "protesters" (rioters) and angry police saying they were defending themselves.

It appears that the more educated you are, the more you fear expressing political views. Perhaps this is why. When education becomes indoctrination, and speaking up for yourself means contradicting the authority figures who won't actually debate you, who wants to borrow trouble?

One possibility is that the petition for rehearing en banc has been denied, and at least one judge would like to write a dissenting opinion.

It seems the company just isn't doing well. I assume paying settlements is a contributing factor to the bankruptcy, but I'm not sure how much of one.

The decision to rehear en banc is all about delay at this point. The election is three months away. By keeping these charges active, Flynn can be kept quiet, out of the election, and reduce the value of his testimony in Durham's grand jury proceedings. Even when there is zero legal ground to stand on, it only takes a majority vote by the (Dem-controlled) DC Appeals Court to hear the case and from there it will be easy for them to stretch it out past the election, after which, they hope, it will no longer matter.
This whole case is disgusting.
The new date for oral arguments is August 11th.

This decision comes after the FBI tried to stonewall for four years. It was prompted by a FOIA request that sought McCabe's emails and text messages related to allegations that his wife's congressional campaign received large donations from Clinton figure Terry McAuliffe.

Trump wins victory on medical price transparency
Thanks to a court victory on this new health regulation, hospitals will be forced to post their prices for various procedures publicly instead of basically hitting you with a massive bill after the fact and then negotiating it with your insurance company. This will force hospitals to compete on price, which will reduce the cost of medical services.

Borepatch points to an article disclosing an IT firm that hires only H1-B temporary visa holders using kickbacks and fraudulent resumes. Even just advertising for only H1-B workers is itself illegal; the kickbacks and fraud are just icing on the cake.

Trump signs order lowering cost of prescription drugs
Details here. I'm mildly skeptical about where Trump's authority to issue these orders comes from, but I'm willing to let the courts sort it out. Certainly the medical industry is heavily regulated already and importing drugs for other nations is substantially a foreign policy matter.

The problem with this proposed solution is simple: if you tell HR you disagree with the political indoctrination exercise they just required you to participate in, they will ensure you are fired.
That is why people don't speak up, and write blogs under pseudonyms.

Teacher's unions demanding socialism before reopening schools
Their list of demands includes Medicare for all, income support (including for illegal aliens), moratoriums on housing costs of all kinds, more taxes, defunding the police, ban on competing schools, and of course, more money.
What does any of that have to do with a virus that doesn't even pose a significant risk to kids?
Nothing, of course. They are nakedly holding the education of our children hostage to their political demands.

When you pay people not to work, they don't work
Expanded pandemic unemployment benefits are equal to a $50K job, except you don't have to get up off your ass. Why would anyone get up and go to work for a job that pays less than that? Basic human nature says you sit on your ass and collect that check unless you can do significantly better than that by working.
(Some people don't care about the doing significantly better part and are quite happy to stay home and enjoy the leisure time even if they could make significantly more, for that matter; and that ignores that a lot of people can't do better than $50K at their best).
So of course unemployment suddenly shot into the stratosphere and stayed there. And then politicians cite high unemployment as a reason to continue the expanded benefits. That's just circular reasoning.
People won't go back to work unless you stop paying them to stay home.

全球免费加速器官网 should go a long way towards creating a new respect for layers of editors and fact checkers among a media that seems to have forgotten all about that part of their job ... but probably not until after the election.

Everything you wanted to know about Steele's primary source
We know who he was now: a Russian living in DC by the name of Danchenko. He was a regular public drunk in Washington DC who was charged, convicted, and served time for same. He has friends who have been involved in the later impeachment efforts (Fiona Hill, who also knows Eric Ciaramella). He was once prosecuted by Rod Rosenstein. His sources for the rumors about Trump were his bar friends (mostly old friends from Russia, not people currently living in Russia or likely to have access to high level information).
Several of these figures are linked to the Brookings Institute, a tax-exempt nonprofit that is supposed to not be involved in politics. But of course for the left, the rules don't matter.
Danchenko himself confessed that he was "clueless" when Steele hired him.
We also have a new name: Brian Auten wrote the FBI interview memo.

Dem prosecutors now threatening federal officers with state charges
Marilyn Mosby, who you may remember from the Freddie Grey affair, is claiming that arresting people for rioting is "illegal vigilante activities".
The last time a state tried to charge a federal officer for engaging in law enforcement activity (that I can recall offhand anyway) was Ruby Ridge, and this situation is a lot less questionable than that. At least absent a dead mom holding her baby.
The chances of state authorities stopping federal law enforcement from operating is about zero.
Both Snopes and BLM just lost all credibility. Not that either had any credibility in my book to start with.

Sally Yates to testify to Senate on SpyGate
Graham is finally producing some results. I am assuming testimony was previously blocked due to Durham's investigation, and witnesses will be allowed to speak publicly like this only once Durham is done with them.
But we still need to see indictments.
At this point I'm just keeping track of these so I can explain why my default position is to disbelieve claims of racism until proven otherwise.
