  1. US sends missile system and ship to Middle East as Iran tensions escalate The military ship USS Arlington - which transports amphibious vehicles and aircraft - will join the USS Abraham Lincoln in the Gulf, officials say. US B-52 bombers have also arrived at a base in Qatar, the Pentagon said. It said the moves were a response to threats of possible operations against US forces in the region by Iran. The US has given little information about the exact nature of the reported threat, which Iran has dismissed as nonsense, describing the deployments as "psychological warfare" aimed at intimidating the country.

    Iran tensions escalate

    Brian Klaas @brianklaas 路 8h The Saudis bailed Trump out in 1991 when they bought his yacht. He had companies registered there up to Dec. 2016. They funneled $270k to his DC hotel 3 days after inauguration. The MBS visit to Trump Soho saved its profit margins for a quarter. And Jared has close ties with MBS.

    Wed., 4-9 under "Fan Programmers" (picked by Glenn Taranto) 12:00 AM (times ET) 93 min war Went the Day Well? (1942) An English village is occupied by disguised German paratroopers as an advance post for a planned invasion. Dir: [Alberto] Cavalcanti LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW: D: Alberto Cavalcanti. Cast: Leslie Banks, Elizabeth Allan, Frank Lawton, Mervyn Johns, Basil Sydney, David Farrar, Marie Lohr, C.V. France, Thora Hird. "Wartime melodrama laced with humor about Germans invading a rural British community. Too sly and well written to be dismissed as mere propaganda; a most intriguing time capsule. Screenplay by John Dighton, Angus MacPhail, and Diana Morgan from a Graham Greene story. And remember: this story, told as a flashback at the end of WW2, was actually made at its peak, when the outcome was far from certain."

    Chris Murphy @ChrisMurphyCT 路 Chris Murphy @ChrisMurphyCT 1/ Okay, in a few tweets I'm going to try to explain what's going on in Yemen today, so you have some knowledge to counter this claim that America needs to bomb Iran because the Houthis bombed Saudi Arabia. It's complicated, but now you need to know......... https://twitter.com/ChrisMurphyCT/status/1173406486082609152 8:21 PM 路 Sep 15, 2019 .....11/ Bottom line: the Saudis sowed the seeds of this mess. They marginalized the Houthis in the 80s and thru the 2000s wars. They bungled the prosecution of the post 2015 conflict. Houthis/Iranians have blood on their hands too, but the U.S. should not be a part of this disaster.

Erik Halvorsen @erikhalvorsen18 路 4h Replying to @senatemajldr 鈥渨hile we found Dr. Ford鈥檚 allegations credible during a 10-month investigation, Ms. Ramirez鈥檚 story could be more fully corroborated...At least 7 people...heard about the incident long before Mr. Kavanaugh was a federal judge. 2 learned of it just days after the party occurred鈥 ------------------------------------------------------------------- vlh @coton_luver 路 2h Replying to @senatemajldr Keep asking: Why did Justice Kennedy retire so abruptly? What role did his son鈥檚 job at Deutsche Bank play? Who paid off Brett Kavanaugh鈥檚 $92,000 country club fees plus his $200,000 credit card debt plus his $1.2 million mortgage, and purchased themselves a SCOTUS seat??

    Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump Saudi Arabia oil supply was attacked. There is reason to believe that we know the culprit, are locked and loaded depending on verification, but are waiting to hear from the Kingdom as to who they believe was the cause of this attack, and under what terms we would proceed! 5:50 PM 路 Sep 15, 2019 ================================ David Rothschild @DavMicRot 路 1h Yemen forces have taken responsibility for the attack on Saudi Arabia and Iran has denied responsibly: both of these are more reliable sources than either President Trump or Prince bin Salman, who are desperate for an excuse to drag US into war against Iran. --------------------------------------------------------------------- Ted Lieu @tedlieu 路 19m NO @realDonaldTrump . The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia does not dictate the terms of war and peace for us. The American people and Congress do. You do not have the power to declare war. Oh, and you promised to get America out of endless wars in the Middle East. Remember?

    Trump's Biggest Whoppers

    Peter Baker @peterbakernyt 路 1h Pompeo, Tuesday: "The president has made very clear he is prepared to meet with no preconditions." Trump, Sunday: "The Fake News is saying that I am willing to meet with Iran, 'No Conditions.' That is an incorrect statement (as usual!)."
  13. Fonda commented on the character he portrayed: Ulee is the best character I've ever read. It's the kind of role you pay money to do 鈥 a complex character full of possibilities and the script was full of moments that were very deep, very pure and very simple. I also found a lot of Ulee in my father. He kept a couple of hives and I can see him hop-footing it across the lawn, thinking he had a bee up his pant leg. As I began to develop Ulee, I used a lot of the way my father was to us as kids, the way he was to us as a family and the way he was to himself.[6] ....... "The plot poses ample opportunities for cliches, all of which Nunez deftly avoids. The characters are wonderfully drawn and bring out the best in the actors 鈥攖he taciturn Fonda often seems to be channeling his father, ...... Variety's Todd McCarthy described the film as a "gem of rare emotional depth and integrity".[ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ulee's_Gold
  14. @SethAbramson As you read the new sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh, remember Those who supported his nomination knew what he was. Those who opposed his nomination knew what he was. Everyone came to the same conclusion. 50% didn't give a sh*t....... Half of America said we don't give a sh*t about women and you can sexually assault them provided you "vote our way"鈥攁s though you couldn't have *found a non-sexual assailant* to vote your way 鈥攁nd those who said that should live with that shame splattered all over them forever. All the GOP had to do was say "Nah鈥攕eems like he might be a rapist and this job is for decades" and just *hit the pause button for a few weeks to find a replacement* ...... https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1173071609332162561.html
  15. @SamSanderson123 路 19h Replying to @SethAbramson WHY did Justice Kennedy abruptly retire? WHO paid off Kavanaugh's debt? WHO was the debt owed to? WHO owns the seat? None of this answered and he's on the court.

  19. @JasonLeopold #FOIA thread screed FBI, the WORST agency when it comes to transparency, the agency that routinely violates #FOIA, has ONLY NOW, after NEARLY A YEAR OF LITIGATION, decided to tell me & @BuzzFeedNews that it is withholding the report on its "investigation" into Brett Kavanaugh The FBI cites an exemption that is laughable to justify the withholding of its report on Brett Kavanaugh investigation: the presidential communication privilege. This leads me to believe there was interference related to the release of this report. The bureau ignores that this report was sent to Congress, and that lawmakers lead calls to conduct this investigation. We intend to litigate the **** out of this.

    The Triumph of Donald Trump

    Trump to propose 鈥榥arrower definition鈥 for water protection The Trump administration this week rolled back Obama-era regulations on the Clean Water Act, which was established to limit the amount of pollution in U.S. bodies of water and to protect sources of drinking water. Critics called the regulations an example of government overreach. ...... it's just expected to be a much narrower definition of what gets this federal protection, so wetlands are not expected to be included for the large part. The Obama rule included protection for underground bodies of water. So you know if you had a stream that drained underground into a larger body of water that counted. Those are not expected to be protected under the new rules. So there's a lot of sort of smaller bodies of water and wetlands that will not be subject to federal protection under the expected Trump rule, which they're saying they'll put out by the end of the year. ......... https://www.pbs.org/newshour/show/trump-to-propose-narrower-definition-for-water-protection?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=pbsofficial&utm_campaign=newshour

I have also informed all appropriate agencies to expedite approvals of the oil pipelines currently in the permitting process in Texas and various other States.

    Trump's Biggest Whoppers

    @thehill Trump says Kavanaugh should "start suing people for libel" after latest allegation of sexual misconduct - President Trump in an early morning tweet on Sunday said "Radical left Democrats" and the "LameStream Media" want to scare Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh into "turning Liberal.""Now the Radical Left Democrats and their Partner, the LameStream Media, are after Brett Kavanaugh again, talking loudly of their favorite word, impeachment," he tweeted. "He is an innocent man who has been treated HORRIBLY. Such lies about him.""They want to scare him into turning Liberal!".... & said Kavanaugh should "start suing people for libel," suggesting that the Justice Department should "come to his rescue." ..... http://hill.cm/rQrwUFu ======================================== @AshaRangappa_ It鈥檚 astonishing that Trump *still* doesn鈥檛 understand how civil litigation works. Truth is an absolute defense to libel. That means that such a suit would by definition involve deposing every witness who can corroborate Ramirez鈥 version of events, on public record and under oath
  25. Brett Kavanaugh Fit In With the Privileged Kids. Ramirez Did Not. "..... To Ms. Ramirez it wasn鈥檛 funny at all. It was the nadir of her first year, when she often felt insufficiently rich, experienced or savvy to mingle with her more privileged classmates. ....... Mr. Kavanaugh, now a justice on the Supreme Court, has adamantly denied her claims. Those claims became a flash point during his confirmation process last year, when he was also fighting other sexual misconduct allegations from Christine Blasey Ford, ........... Ms. Ramirez鈥檚 story could be more fully corroborated. During his Senate testimony, Mr. Kavanaugh said that if the incident Ms. Ramirez described had occurred, it would have been 鈥渢he talk of campus.鈥 Our reporting suggests that it was. At least seven people, including Ms. Ramirez鈥檚 mother, heard about the Yale incident long before Mr. Kavanaugh was a federal judge...... Ms. Ramirez鈥檚 legal team gave the F.B.I. a list of at least 25 individuals who may have had corroborating evidence. But the bureau 鈥 in its supplemental background investigation 鈥 interviewed none of them, though we learned many of these potential witnesses tried in vain to reach the F.B.I. on their own. Two F.B.I. agents interviewed Ms. Ramirez, telling her that they found her 鈥渃redible.鈥 But the Republican-controlled Senate had imposed strict limits on the investigation.... 鈥淚 would view the Ramirez allegations as not having been even remotely investigated.鈥 ........ https://www.nytimes.com/2019/09/14/sunday-review/brett-kavanaugh-deborah-ramirez-yale.html?smid=nytcore-ios-share
