  1. House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal has formally requested President Donald Trump's tax returns from the Internal Revenue Service, likely launching a battle with the administration that could stretch months or even years in the courts and could shed light on the President's finances. In a letter to the IRS sent Wednesday and first obtained by CNN, Neal cites a little known IRS code in his request for six years of Trump's personal tax returns from 2013 to 2018. He also requested the tax returns of eight of Trump's business entities, a nod to escalating pressure from liberals in the caucus who have argued that Trump's personal returns wouldn't sufficiently paint a picture of the President's financial history. While the move will largely be seen by Republicans as a political escalation, Neal explained in the letter the request is part of his oversight role. Neal wrote that the committee needed Trump's tax returns to consider legislation related to the IRS's practice of auditing sitting presidents. "Under the Internal Revenue Manual, individual income tax returns of a President are subject to mandatory examination, but this practice is IRS policy and not codified in the Federal tax laws," Neal wrote in a letter to the IRS. "It is necessary for the committee to determine the scope of any such examination and whether it includes a review of underlying business activities required to be reported on the individual income tax return." In a statement to CNN, Neal stressed that the committee's request was about "policy, not politics." "My preparations were made on my own track and timeline, entirely independent of other activities in Congress and the administration," Neal said. "My actions reflect an abiding reverence for our democracy and our institutions, and are in no way based on emotion of the moment or partisanship. I trust that in this spirit, the IRS will comply with federal law and furnish me with the requested documents in a timely manner." Neal has given the IRS until April 10 to comply with the request. https://www.cnn.com/2019/04/03/politics/trump-tax-returns-house-democrats-request/index.html

  3. President Donald Trump directed his outrage at Puerto Rico on Monday night, calling the U.S. territory "a mess" and its politicians "incompetent or corrupt," after Senate Democrats clashed with their Republican counterparts over sending more disaster aid money. Senators took test votes on two competing measures -- one drafted by Senate Republicans and another passed by Democratic-led House of Representatives earlier this year -- that would allocate billions of dollars in aid to U.S. states and territories ravaged by hurricanes, flooding, wildfires and other natural disasters in recent months. But neither piece of legislation got the support required to advance to a full floor vote. Democrats shot down the GOP legislation while Republicans rejected the House-passed bill, which proposes more aid for Puerto Rico than the Republican version. Democrats said they wanted the federal government to release the money already appropriated to Puerto Rico in a previous relief package, in addition to hundreds of millions of dollars more. Republicans echoed Trump's claims that Puerto Puerto Rico has been given much more than disaster-hit states and hasn't spent the money wisely. "The Democrats today killed a Bill that would have provided great relief to Farmers and yet more money to Puerto Rico despite the fact that Puerto Rico has already been scheduled to receive more hurricane relief funding than any 'place' in history. The people of Puerto Rico," Trump posted on Twitter, "are GREAT, but the politicians are incompetent or corrupt. Puerto Rico got far more money than Texas & Florida combined, yet their government can’t do anything right, the place is a mess - nothing works." "FEMA & The Military worked emergency miracles but politicians like," Trump continued. "the crazed and incompetent Mayor of San Juan have done such a poor job of bringing the Island back to health. 91 Billion Dollars to Puerto Rico, and now the Dems want to give them more, taking dollars away from our Farmers and so many others. Disgraceful!" https://abcnews.go.com/US/trump-lashes-puerto-ricos-incompetent-corrupt-politicians-senate/story?id=62107652

  8. The father of a 6-year-old girl killed in the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre was found dead Monday morning from an apparent suicide, police said. The body of Jeremy Richman was found in his Connecticut office building, Newtown police said. His death is the third suicide in the past week related to school massacres. Richman, 49, was the father of Avielle Richman, who was among 20 children killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. Police said they "will not disclose the method or any other details of the death," other than it does not appear to be suspicious. Parkland grieves 2 suicides a year after massacre In Florida, mourners are grieving the death of Sydney Aiello, a 2018 graduate of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School who died by suicide last week. She survived the attack on Valentine's Day 2018 that killed 17 people at the school in Parkland. more in the link https://www-m.cnn.com/2019/03/25/us/sandy-hook-victim-father-jeremy-richman-suicide/index.html?r=https%3A%2F%2Fnews.google.com%2F

  10. A former high school student who survived last year's Parkland, Florida, shooting massacre has died from an apparent suicide, according to officials. Sydney Aiello, 19, died on Sunday at her home in Coconut Creek, Florida, from a gunshot wound to the head, according to the Broward County medical examiner's office. Aiello graduated from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in 2018, months after a shooting at the school left 17 students and staff dead. Her mother, Cara Stein-Aiello, told CBS's Miami station that her daughter struggled with survivor's guilt and was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder. Efforts by ABC News to reach Stein-Aiello were not immediately successful. Aiello was a friend of 18-year-old Parkland massacre victim Meadow Pollack, said Pollack's brother, Hunter Pollack. "It was completely devastating to bury another beautiful young person in Parkland today," Pollack tweeted Friday. "Our community is going through tragedy again. Please keep the Aiello Family in your prayers. "Rest in peace, Sydney. Take care of Meadow for me," he wrote. It was completely devastating to bury another beautiful young person in Parkland today. Our community is going through tragedy again. Please keep the Aiello Family in your prayers. https://abcnews.go.com/US/sydney-aiello-19-year-parkland-survivor-dies-suicide/story?id=61869606

  15. Today in "wild GTA highways happenings," we have dashcam footage that makes a flying hunk of wood look like an overfed mosquito. The video in question, captured near Highway 404 and 16th Avenue in Markham on Tuesday afternoon, starts as most dashcam videos do: with nothing but open road in front of the vehicle it's attached to. Seconds into the clip, a small, low-flying plane slides quickly across the driver's path. Its wing tip can be seen scuffing the road as it comes within inches of the motorist before jutting out of frame, slamming into a fence, and stopping in a ditch. https://www.blogto.com/city/2019/03/dashcam-video-shows-plane-nearly-missing-car-markham/
  16. "Alabama’s only federally-recognized Native American tribe is stepping forward to cover the funerary costs of all those who fell victim to the tornado in Lee County last week. The Poarch Band of Creek Indians is making a $184,000 donation to pay for the funerals of all 23 tornado victims, as confirmed by CNN with the coroner’s office earlier this week. Since the tribe was originally going to be splitting the memorial costs with another unidentified Alabama business, the Natives upped their donation from $50,000 after the business-backed out of the agreement. “It is at times of greatest need that we often see our communities coming together to help one another – this is one of those times,” said Stephanie A. Bryan, the Tribal Chair and CEO of the Poarch Band of Creek Indians. “Our thoughts and prayers are with all of those affected.” CNN says that other local philanthropists will be making personal multi-thousand donations of their own in order to help affected families as well."

  19. Wtf, this is so stupid. Calling someone "parent 1" is like talking to a robot.... French schools are to replace the words “mother” and “father” with “parent 1” and “parent 2” under an amendment to a law passed this week. Supporters of the change say it will stop discrimination against same sex parents but critics argue it “dehumanises” parenthood, is “ugly” and could lead to rows over who gets to be “parent 1”. The amendment was passed by MPs on Tuesday night as part of a wider so-called law to build “a school of trust”, which among other things also makes attendance compulsory for all three-year-olds. “This amendment aims to root in law children’s family diversity in administrative forms submitted in school,” said Valérie Petit, MP for the majority REM party of President Emmanuel Macron. Ms Petit, from the Nord department, said that the words mother and father, on all school documents such as pertaining to the canteen or authorising children to go on excursions, no longer took into account the recently-passed gay marriage law, nor the existence of same sex parents. She added: “We have families who find themselves faced with tick boxes stuck in rather old-fashioned social and family models. For us, this article is a measurement of social equality.” Socialist MP Joaquim Pueyot also praised the reform as “a question of respect and dignity”. “You cannot imagine the consequences when children don’t feel treated like the others,” he said. FCPE, France’s biggest parent’s federation, called “a very good thing”. “It echos the (recent) law on fighting harassment because often situations of child harassment target kids who don’t fit the current criteria.” But the move angered the mainstream conservative Republicans, or LR, party and the far-Right. Conservative MP Xavier Breton said: “When I hear people say this is an old-fashioned model, I would remind people that today among unions celebrated, civil or marital, some 95 per cent are man-woman couples.” Conservative MP Fabien Di Filippo denounced a “frightening ideology, which in the name of limitless egalitarianism promotes removing points of reference, including those regarding the family”. The idea of replacing mother and father by parent 1 and 2 was already mooted during the debate leading to the 2013 law legalising same sex marriage but was not inscribed into legislation at the time. Indeed, Jean-Michel Blanquer, the current education minister, had opposed the amendment on the grounds that this need not be a legislative matter. Eric Ciotti, another Right-wing MP, said: “They swore this was fantasy, that it would never happen. The negation of gender deconstructs the balance of our society.” Traditionalists were appalled. Ludovine de la Rochère, president of the Manif Pour Tous organisation that opposes gay marriage, called it “totally dehumanising”. “Children need bearings,” she said. Meanwhile Marine Le Pen, head of the far-Right National Rally, said “the mask has fallen” from the Macron camp regarding its view of society. Jordan Bardella, head of RN’s European election list, said the move was part of an attempt to “ideologically condition children”, even claiming that “totalitarianism is not far off”. The Right wasn’t the only camp to express scepticism. AFDH, the French association for same sex parents, said that while it welcomed providing a way for such parents to be “included in forms”, it warned it could create a “parental hierarchy”. “Who is ‘parent number 1’ and who is ‘parent number 2’?,” asked AFDH president Alexandre Urwicz, who called for more “inclusive” forms including the boxes “father, mother and legal representative”. Jean-Michel Aphatie, editorialist on Europe 1 radio, said that while the change was logical to keep step with “administrative reality”, turning parents into numbers was “very administrative and very ugly”. The amendment could yet be rejected by the majority-Right Senate but will then return to the National Assembly for a final reading. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2019/02/14/schools-france-replace-mother-father-parent-1-2-controversial/
  20. Over a dozen western songs have been banned from being played in daylight hours by Indonesia's conservative West Java province. A list of 85 songs, including 17 western songs, has been singled out by the West Java broadcasting commission for containing what was deemed to be adult and offensive content. This includes Ed Sheeran's "Shape of You", Ariana Grande's "Love Me Harder", and Bruno Mars's "That's What I Like". A memorandum issued on Tuesday, 26 February warned that the listed songs should only be played or broadcast between 10pm and 3am. “In this case, what is banned is not the songs, but the lyrics of the songs that contain *****graphy, *****graphic association, and obscenity,” Rahmat Arifin, deputy head of the commission, told Tempo.co. The full list of Western songs is as follows: “Love Me Harder” – Ariana Grande feat. The Weeknd “Wild Thoughts” – DJ Khaled feat. Rihanna “Mr. Brightside” – The Killers “Dusk Till Dawn” – ZAYN “Let Me” – ZAYN “Sangria Wine” – Pharrell & Camila Cabello “Bad Things” – Machine Gun Kelly & Camila Cabello “Plot Twist” – Sigrid “Shape of You” – Ed Sheeran “Overdose” – Agnez Mo feat. Chris Brown “Makes Me Wonder” – Maroon 5 “That’s What I Like” – Bruno Mars “Versace On The Floor” – Bruno Mars “**** it, Don’t Want You Back” – Eamon “Midsummer Madness” – 88rising “Till it Hurts” – Yellow Claw “Your Song” – Rita Ora https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/feb/27/pornographic-songs-by-ed-sheeran-and-ariana-grande-banned-in-indonesian-province
