Puerto Rico hit with new power outage

On the same day Puerto Rico’s governor celebrated power generation on the island reaching 50% of capacity, the lights went out in the San Juan metro area. The source of Wednesday’s outage was the same main north-south transmission line that failed last Thursday, leaving swaths of the capital without power for hours, officials said.

Noticias y Blogs de PR – Review: Muere Toto Riina, ex jefe de Cosa Nostra, la mafia siciliana

Totó Riina, el ex jefe supremo de Cosa Nostra, la mafia siciliana, ha muerto esta madrugada en la cárcel de Parma (norte) a los 87 años, ha informado este viernes el diario italiano La Repubblica.Riina, que falleció a las 3.37 hora local (2.37 GMT), había pasado los últimos cinco días en coma, tras ser intervenido quirúrgicamente en dos ocasiones, según el periódico.

El que fuera “capo de capos” de la mafia estaba condenado a 13 cadenas perpetuas por los múltiples asesinatos que ordenó, entre ellos el de los magistrados Giovanni Falcone y Paolo Borselino en 1992.

En julio pasado, el Tribunal de Vigilancia Penitenciaria de Bolonia (norte) negó su excarcelación, después de que el Tribunal Supremo pidiera que se estudiara su situación por el deterioro de su salud, con importantes problemas cardíacos y renales y parkinson, según sus abogados.

Riina (Corleone, 1930) se encontraba detenido desde 1993 como consecuencia de los más de cien asesinatos que cometió con sus propias manos y otros tantos que ordenó.

Palmer Report: Yet another Donald Trump administration official forced to resign in disgrace

The list of people who have resigned from the Donald Trump administration, via scandal or controversy or alleged criminal behavior or other embarrassing fashion, is so long that it’s difficult to recite it from memory. As of today, yet another Trump administration official has resigned in disgrace and in this instance it’s a particularly hypocritical development, even by Trumpian standards.Despite the separation of church and state mandated by the United States Constitution, there is a position in the Donald Trump administration called the “Director of the Center for Faith-Based & Neighborhood Partnerships at the Department of Homeland Security.” Reverend Jamie Johnson held that position until today, when he was forced to resign over inappropriate remarks he’d made before taking the job. His remarks are so over the top, they reveal that he’s not a legitimate reverend or religious leader, but a paranoid racist and a deranged lunatic.

Before taking the DHS job, Johnson would call into talk radio and attack black people for their “laziness.” He attacked Muslims, saying “all that Islam has ever given us is oil and dead bodies,” according to The Hill (link). He’s now apologizing and insisting that his own words somehow don’t represent his own views but that rings hollow, as he’s already made his true views plenty clear.

Jamie Johnson’s name is now added to a long and growing list of people who have controversially resigned from Donald Trump’s chaotic and dysfunctional administration. The list prominently includes Michael Flynn (alleged crimes against the United States), Sebastian Gorka (alleged Nazi), Steve Bannon (racist), Tom Price (financial scandal), Anthony Scaramucci (inappropriate remarks), Sean Spicer, Reince Priebus, and Keith Schiller (recently testified about the Pee Pee Tape). Trump has also inappropriately fired James Comey, Preet Bharara, Sally Yates and others in an attempt at preventing them from investigating his scandals.

Palmer Report: Robert Mueller finally drops the subpoena hammer on Donald Trump

Throughout his investigation, Special Counsel Robert Mueller has relied on a mix of voluntary cooperation, subpoenas, and arrests in order to get his hands on the evidence and testimony required to gradually build a cadre of criminal cases in the Trump-Russia scandal. Now we’ve reached the stage where Mueller is dropping the subpoena hammer on Trump himself, by going after Trump’s official campaign records.Trump’s campaign had been voluntarily turning over some records requested by Mueller. But now things have dramatically changed, and Mueller has sent a subpoena to the Trump campaign, according to a new Wall Street Journal report (link). This strongly suggests that Mueller has begun getting close enough to the heart of the scandal that the campaign has decided to stop voluntarily giving him what he wants. With the gloves now off, Mueller is now forcibly going after Donald Trump directly, because a subpoena issued to the campaign is essentially a subpoena issued to Trump himself. But there’s more.

Although the WSJ is just now breaking this story, it turns out Mueller sent the subpoena around a month ago, and it’s just now becoming public. This is the latest instance of Mueller being several steps ahead of the media and the public when it comes to some of the most drastic steps he’s taking.

For instance, after Robert Mueller had the FBI raid Donald Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort’s house in the middle of the night, that news didn’t leak out for weeks. He also arrested Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos in July, but didn’t reveal the arrest until October, by which time Papadopoulos had already pleaded guilty and was deep into cooperating with the investigation. Whatever is going on with Mueller’s subpoena of Trump and his campaign, it’s likely progressed far beyond what is publicly known.
