Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch has a message for ‘the resistance’

Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch made a brief video which Senate Democrats published on their Facebook page last Tuesday. In the video, Lynch says that American’s rights are being “trampled on” and recalls past marches in which people bled and died are a model for how to respond now.

Muslim arrested for child rape was in U.S. on a visa from Chuck Schumer

Tanveer Hussain was initially denied a visa to enter the United States and compete in the World Snowshoe Championships. After he publicly appealed for help to enter the country, however, Village Mayor Clyde Rabideau asked New York Senators Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand for help.

“The Reality Is, Half Of Americans Can’t Afford To Write A $500 Check”

The CEO of Assurant appeared on Bloomberg TV to explain why demand for his services is likely to increase: the chief executive of the mobile phone insurer said he expects a surge in demand as carriers charge customers more to replace their devices. “If you think back five years ago, you as a consumer didn’t know how much that phone cost, you thought it was free or close to free,” Assurant’s Alan Colberg said Monday. “Now you’re paying $600, that’s a lot. So we’ve actually seen the attachment rate, or the number of people buying the product, going up a little bit in the last couple of years.”

China to develop satellite-delivery rockets released from airplanes

China will develop a new generation of rockets launched from aircraft that can put satellites into space, according to Li Tongyu, the head of carrier rocket development at the China Academy of Launch Vehicle Technology.

Air-launched rockets can rapidly replace dysfunctional satellites or, in cases of disaster relief, quickly send up Earth observation satellites to assist in the effort, Li said.

Designers at the academy, which is the main developer of Chinese carrier rockets, have designed a model capable of sending a payload of about 100 kilograms into low Earth orbit and are ready to produce one if the government asks, he said.

Dutch Populist Wilders Feels Trump Burn With Slide in Polls

Dutch populist Geert Wilders may have Donald Trump to blame for the slide in his popularity — at least in some part.

While Wilders’s anti-Islam, anti-European Union Freedom Party, known as PVV in Dutch, has been ahead of Prime Minister Mark Rutte’s Liberals for much of the campaign, recent polls show that lead evaporating. A Peil.nl poll published Sunday showed the Freedom Party would get 25 seats in the 150-seat parliament, down from 29 a week ago, narrowing its lead over the Liberals to one seat. The latest LISS Panel poll puts the Liberals ahead of the Freedom Party. Wilders had a lead of as many as 12 seats at the start of the year.

Lawmakers call on U.S. Marines to investigate nude photo network

Senior U.S. lawmakers on Sunday condemned the suspected distribution of nude photographs of female Marines to military personnel and veterans via a social media network that promotes sexual violence, and called on the Marine Corps to fully investigate.

The Marine Corps Times, an independent newspaper focusing on issues involving the service, published an internal Marine Corps communications document with talking points about the issue, describing the social media network as a closed Facebook group with about 30,000 members. The network solicited nude photos of female service members, some of whom had their name, rank and duty station listed, the newspaper reported.

Conservatives pan House Obamacare repeal bill as Welfare

A handful of House conservatives on Monday evening criticized GOP leadership’s newly released Obamacare replacement bill, foreshadowing trouble for the repeal effort even after leaders tried to assuage the far-right.

Some House Freedom Caucus members dismissed the bill as creating a new “entitlement program” by offering health care tax credits to low-income Americans. A Republican Study Committee memo sent to chiefs of staff, obtained by POLITICO, echoed those comments and blasted the bill’s continuation of the Medicaid expansion for three years.
