Congressman: Germany’s release of Sept. 11 money man ‘unfathomable’

mikenova shared this story from Boston Herald – Boston Herald.

U.S. Rep. Stephen F. Lynch is slamming Germany’s early release of a 9/11 money man, calling it “unfathomable” to set free someone who helped the hijackers who seized Flight 11 and Flight 175 out of Boston, launching the War on Terror.

Mounir el-Motassadeq — who paid tuition and rent for the al-Qaeda killers while they plotted in Hamburg — is being deported back to his native Morocco early. He was sentenced in 2006 to 15 years, but is being given credit for time served, German’s Bild newspaper reported Thursday. He was jailed in November 2001.

“This is extremely disappointing to say the least,” Lynch told the Herald yesterday.

“Mr. el-Motassadeq was involved in the mass murder of innocent American civilians,” Lynch added. “While I have worked with the German government on many other aspects of our war on terrorism, this decision is unfathomable.”

The deal to get el-Motassadeq out of Germany ahead of schedule so he can never return, said the sister of a murdered Sept. 11, 2001, pilot, is “pure bunk.”

“He was found guilty of 246 counts of accessory to murder — one for each of the passengers who died on all the four hijacked flights that day,” Debra Burlingame said. “It’s shocking he only got 15 years and this sends the message the cost of human life is cheap in Germany.”

Burlingame’s brother Charles “Chic” Burlingame III was the pilot of American Airlines Flight 77 that was hijacked out of Washington Dulles International Airport in Dulles, Va., and flown into the Pentagon.

She was invited to attend the 2003 trial in Germany of el-Motassadeq’s alleged accomplice, who wasn’t convicted. The news of the release, the New York native added, has her worried people are forgetting the lessons of Sept. 11.

“The news cycle is at warp speed now. Seventeen years is an eternity. … There’s no question in my mind people don’t remember,” she said. “But if you don’t learn the lessons of history, then it will repeat.”

El-Motassadeq was convicted of aiding the three hijackers, who lived in a terror cell in Hamburg — including 9/11 ringleader Mohamed Atta.

Atta was the hijacker who flew American Airlines Flight 11 into the North Tower of the World Trade Center.

El-Motassadeq also helped Marwan al-Shehhi, hijacker-pilot of United Airlines Flight 175, also out of Logan airport, that crashed into the South Tower of the World Trade Center.

He also assisted Ziad Jarrah, the hijacker-pilot of United Airlines Flight 93 out of Newark, N.J., that passengers took control of, crashing it into a field in Pennsylvania.

To let him out even a day early, Burlingame said, is “cowardly.”

“It’s human nature to forget, but we need to stay vigilant,” she said. “Europe is sitting on its hands. They don’t want to look politically incorrect. They are willing to let their own children die to show how virtuous they are. It’s foolish.”

Beryl – Wikipedia

Etymology[edit]

The name “beryl” is derived (via LatinberyllusOld Frenchberyl, and Middle Englishberil) from Greekβήρυλλος beryllos which referred to a “precious blue-green color-of-sea-water stone”; akin to Prakritveruliaveluriya (“beryl”).[6] The term was later adopted for the mineral beryl more exclusively.

When the first eyeglasses were constructed in 13th century Italy, the lenses were made of beryl (or of rock crystal) as glass could not be made clear enough. Consequently, glasses were named Brillen in German[7] (bril in Dutch and Briller in Danish).

Beryllium – Wikipedia
 

mikenova shared this story .

Beryllium is a chemical element with symbol Be and atomic number 4. It is a relatively rare element in the universe, usually occurring as a product of the spallation of larger atomic nuclei that have collided with cosmic rays. Within the cores of stars beryllium is depleted as it is fused and creates larger elements. It is a divalent element which occurs naturally only in combination with other elements in minerals. Notable gemstones which contain beryllium include beryl (aquamarineemerald) and chrysoberyl. As a free element it is a steel-gray, strong, lightweight and brittle alkaline earth metal.

Beryllium improves many physical properties when added as an alloying element to aluminiumcopper(notably the alloy beryllium copper), iron and nickel.[5] Beryllium does not form oxides until it reaches very high temperatures. Tools made of beryllium copper alloys are strong and hard and do not create sparks when they strike a steel surface. In structural applications, the combination of high flexural rigiditythermal stabilitythermal conductivity and low density (1.85 times that of water) make beryllium metal a desirable aerospace material for aircraft components, missilesspacecraft, and satellites.[5] Because of its low density and atomic mass, beryllium is relatively transparent to X-rays and other forms of ionizing radiation; therefore, it is the most common window material for X-ray equipment and components of particle detectors.[5] The high thermal conductivities of beryllium and beryllium oxide have led to their use in thermal management applications.

The commercial use of beryllium requires the use of appropriate dust control equipment and industrial controls at all times because of the toxicity of inhaled beryllium-containing dusts that can cause a chronic life-threatening allergic disease in some people called berylliosis.[6]

Germany: Government Begins Unveiling Its Anti Trump Coalition
 

mikenova shared this story from SPIEGEL ONLINE – Schlagzeilen.

On the day European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker reached a surprise deal on trade with Donald Trump, German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas was standing in front of a wood-paneled government building 11,000 kilometers (6,800 miles) to the east. Maas was in Japan on his first trip to Asia as foreign minister, and expectations were high. “We share the same values,” said Maas, who is a member of the center-left Social Democrats, as his host, Japanese President Shinzo Abe, nodded. “In the current geopolitical situation, it is good to clearly emphasize this once again.”

But the guest from Germany brought more with him in his suitcase than just friendly words. In Tokyo, Maas presented the Japanese leader with his idea for a new alliance between states. It could fill the geopolitical vacuum created by Trump. In the coming months, a network of globally oriented states is to be created that closely coordinates its foreign, trade and climate policies. “We need an alliance of the multilateralists,” says Maas — which is to say, an alliance that stands for the global rules and structures of the postwar order that Trump rejects. “It’s better to bend than break” would be the wrong maxim in these times,” Maas argues.

The outlines of the German government’s new anti-Trump strategy are currently being sketched out. The German Foreign Ministry has been doing preliminary work on it for some time now. Maas’s predecessor, Sigmar Gabriel, had already assigned the task of redefining the relationship with the U.S. in the period following the Republican president’s election. In the planning division, papers had to be constantly revised to reflect the U.S. president’s latest tweets.

But now a clear goal has emerged. If that hadn’t been the case before, the Brussels NATO summit — where the U.S. president threatened to withdraw from the Western defense alliance — and his later description of the European Union as a “foe,” cemented the conviction in Berlin, Brussels and Paris that alliances mean nothing to Trump. The U.S. has transformed from a “source of order” into a “destroyer of order,” according to sources within the German government.

At the Foreign Ministry, the idea of forming a network of Western-aligned countries “that stands for reason and adherence to the playing rules, and won’t back down when faced with protectionism and egoism” is taking shape, according to Maas. “We need a strategy, and we need allies.”

The strategy won’t likely be fully formed until the end of the year, but the allies have already been determined. In addition to Japan, they are likely to also include South Korea, which Maas will also be visiting this week. Both countries would like to sign wide-ranging free trade agreements with the EU.

Maas is also considering South Africa, Australia and Argentina as strategic partners, as well as, of course, the U.S.’s two neighbors, Mexico and Canada. In late August, Canada’s Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland is expected to be a guest at the German Foreign Ministry’s Ambassadors Conference in Berlin.

Maas envisions an alliance of countries that, “working together, defends and further develops the existing rules.” He says the alliance should “display solidarity when international law is being trampled on at another party’s front door.”

Maas plans to float the first trial balloon during the General Assembly of the United Nations in late September. Together with India, Brazil and Japan, the German foreign minister is planning a proposal for a reform of the Security Council. Germany will serve on the Security Council for two years starting in 2019. If Berlin is assigned to chair the council, that would be the point at which the new alliance would appear together for the first time. Maas wants to define the new seat as “European,” in “radical alliance” with France.

That won’t be easy, because Paris and Berlin aren’t just pursuing contradictory goals when it comes to trade. French President Emmanuel Macron wants to found an “interventions initiative” in which other non-EU states can also participate. Germany, for its part, supports a European defense union, or Pesco for short, that is focused on the EU. Meanwhile, with a “new policy for Eastern Europe,” Maas wants to, above all, overcome the rifts with Eastern European countries like Poland and the Baltic States in order to create a Europe that is “sovereign and strong.”

Now, much as they succeeded in doing during the trade war with the U.S., the French and the Germans need to find a compromise. The conflict over tariffs, Maas argues, shows “that our words carry weight when Europe acts together.”

PUERTO RICO POLÍTICA

Héctor Ferrer acusa al Gobierno de Rosselló de la situación crítica de Puerto Rico

EFEUSASan Juan

El presidente del opositor Partido Popular Democrático (PPD) de Puerto Rico, Héctor Ferrer, acusó en entrevista con Efe al Gobierno de ineficacia en el área económica, falta de transparencia en los muertos por María y tolerar la Junta de Supervisión Fiscal, todo causa de una situación crítica. EFE/ArchivoEl presidente del opositor Partido Popular Democrático (PPD) de Puerto Rico, Héctor Ferrer, acusó en entrevista con Efe al Gobierno de ineficacia en el área económica, falta de transparencia en los muertos por María y tolerar la Junta de Supervisión Fiscal, todo causa de una situación crítica. EFE/Archivo

El presidente del opositor Partido Popular Democrático (PPD) de Puerto Rico, Héctor Ferrer, acusó en entrevista con Efe al Gobierno de ineficacia en el área económica, falta de transparencia en los muertos por María y tolerar la Junta de Supervisión Fiscal, todo causa de una situación crítica.

“Miles de personas permanecen sin energía, cientos de intersecciones tienen estropeados los semáforos y cerca de cinco mil negocios que estaban operativos antes del huracán no han podido abrir”, un complicado panorama descrito por Ferrer al que en su opinión el Gobierno liderado por Ricardo Rosselló no ha sabido responder.

Ferrer aseguró que tampoco ha contribuido a mejorar las cosas la desde su punto de vista mala administración por parte del Ejecutivo de los fondos federales llegados a Puerto Rico para paliar los daños causados por el huracán María del pasado septiembre.

El presidente del PPD, una formación que defiende el actual estatus de Puerto Rico de Estado Libre Asociado a Estados Unidos, lo que le permite al Ejecutivo local cierto grado de autonomía y contar con su propia Constitución, subraya que la isla caribeña se enfrenta a una realidad complicada a la que no se dan las respuestas adecuadas.

“El Gobierno colapso tras el huracán María”, subraya Ferrer, para quien la isla solo comenzó a ver la luz tras la llegada de las autoridades federales a Puerto Rico una semana después del desastre.

Asegura que los distintos departamentos del Gobierno, comenzando por la Agencia Estatal para el Manejo que Emergencias, no estuvieron a la altura de la situación tras María.

Ferrer indicó que la cadena de errores comenzó en la gestión de la respuesta al huracán, a lo que siguió el controvertido asunto de la cifra de muertes ocasionadas por el ciclón, que el Gobierno de Rosselló mantiene fueron 64 personas, cifra oficial que contrasta con un informe de la Universidad de Harvard que la sitúa en más de 4.500.

“El Gobierno insiste en la cifra de 64 muertos pero todo el mundo sabe que fueron muchos más” asegura el líder de la oposición, para quien no tienen sentido que el Ejecutivo trate de enmascarar la cifra real de fallecidos.

La lista de graves problemas a los que se enfrenta Puerto Rico sigue con el papel de la Junta de Supervisión Fiscal, entidad de control al Ejecutivo de San Juan impuesta por una ley aprobada por el Congreso en Washington para atender el problema de una deuda pública impagable y encauzar las cuentas públicas.

“Estoy en contra de la Junta por contradecir el derecho natural de escoger las personas que nos gobiernen”, sostuvo el líder del PPD, tras matizar que “Junta y Gobierno son la misma cosa”.

La JSF exige, tras negociar con el Ejecutivo de Rosselló, la derogación de la Ley 80 que garantiza una indemnización por despido injustificado, una medida criticada por el PPD.

“Espero que el Senado mantenga su oposición y no permita que esa ley se elimine”, resaltó Ferrer, para quien no existe estudio alguno que señale que acabar con esa norma que garantiza una indemnización por despidos vaya a suponer un estímulo para la economía.

“La responsabilidad de la Junta es enderezar las finanzas del Gobierno, pero la eliminación de la Ley 80 no tiene ninguna influencia en eso”, defendió Ferrer.

A su juicio, la economía solo mejorará si se consigue un Gobierno más eficiente y unos municipios con una gestión más óptima que la actual de los servicios que se presentan a los ciudadanos.

Además, rechazó que el Gobierno exija austeridad a los ciudadanos mientras hay jefes de agencia que cobran hasta 400.000 dólares anuales

En cuanto al asunto del estatus de Puerto Rico, dijo que los esfuerzos del Gobierno para convertir a la isla en un estado más de EEUU han sido inútiles y que el Ejecutivo utiliza el asunto de la relación política con Estados Unidos para desviar la atención de los problemas reales que no sabe solucionar.

Ferrer subrayó que defiende el desarrollo del Estado Libre Asociado para ganar mayor autonomía y permitir así que la isla goce de una economía más robusta, postura que choca con el Gobierno, que defiende la plena anexión de Puerto Rico a Estados Unidos como un estado más del país norteamericano.

El líder de la oposición criticó además la situación por la que atraviesa la isla en el ámbito de la criminalidad, en su opinión sin una respuesta contundente a causa de la mala gestión del secretario del Departamento de Seguridad Pública (DSP), Héctor Pesquera.

Pidió que prescinda de los servicios de Pesquera, un funcionario que como recordó gana anualmente cerca de 250.000 dólares, y que la Policía vuelva a ser responsabilidad exclusiva de una sola persona.

Crisis en el PNP | Opinión
 

Por: Lcdo. Iván Rivera

Facebook: Facebook.com/DiscusionPuertoRico

Ramón, la semana pasada el PNP demostró síntomas de su primera gran crisis en este cuatrienio. Ante la falta de oposición real, y lo inconsecuente que ha resultado ser el PPD, en este ciclo electoral todas las situaciones del diario vivir de la administración habían sido paliadas con relativo éxito.

La excepción a eso lo fueron los dos temas relacionados a los huracanes ligados a la administración Trump y que, por ende, eran “sexies” para cierto sector del “media monopoly” de EE.UU. Los cuales aún, de vez en cuando, remachan sobre los mismos. De hecho, ni tanto. Luego de aspavientos con el tema de Whitefish, ni las investigaciones congresionales, ni de las agencias investigativas federales, han levantado un ápice de ilegalidad. Pero, en fin, era sexy decir que el tipo que aspiraba a ser empresario, sin dinero y con oficina original en una choza de Montana, había obtenido un contrato millonario, no por sus conocimientos, sino porque lo traqueteó alguien en el ministerio de lo interior del gobierno de Trump. Si la era Trump hubiese sido en 1976, Steve Jobs y Steve Wozniak hubiesen sido lapidados y hoy no tendrías tu Iphone.

Pero a lo que vinimos. Tanto el choque frontal del gobernador con Rivera Schatz, así como el desaire que le realizara Trump ante su petición informal de estadidad, en sus consecuencias, representan la primera gran crisis del presente ciclo electoral para el PNP y sus aspiraciones a la reelección.

El primero sumerge a la administración en una incertidumbre fiscal que puede tener efectos políticos adversos. Además, abre una fisura de división que puede llenarles el barco de agua. El segundo, toca la fibra de lo que le da unidad al PNP: el asunto “ideológico”. Si las huestes del PNP, ante dicho desaire comienzan a perder de perspectiva eso que los une, por imposible que aparenta ser, junto con la fisura antes mencionada, puede ser el comienzo del final. Algo similar le pasó al PPD con AGP el cuatrienio anterior y su falta de liderazgo terminó enterrándolo. Ahora queda por verse el talante de liderazgo de Ricky.

Iván, discrepo con el título que seleccionas. No estamos en una crisis del PNP sino en todo nuestro entorno económico y fiscal. Y eso, no es algo que nace en esta administración, sino que venimos experimentando con distintas gradaciones desde la administración de Sila María Calderón.

Ciertamente, el gobernador y el pueblo añaden a su lista de retos, el que no se haya podido cumplir con el acuerdo con la Junta de Supervisión Fiscal sobre la derogación de la Ley 80. Cumplirlo, aseguraba mucho dinero para nuestro desarrollo económico y protegía importantes derechos de la clase trabajadora como su bono de Navidad y sus días de vacaciones y enfermedad. Luego de que al gobernador recibiera el apoyo de la comisionada residente, alcaldes del PNP y su delegación en la Cámara de Representantes, el Senado determinó no darle paso.

Iván, cada funcionario electo es escogido democráticamente para tomar las determinaciones que entiendan benefician más a sus constituyentes. Muchas veces, las cosas que benefician al pueblo no son simpáticas. No obstante, por muchas décadas, otros han tomado determinaciones simpáticas y rehusado hacer lo correcto; por eso tenemos un gobierno en quiebra y una migración sin precedentes a otras jurisdicciones de los Estados Unidos.

El gobernador y los representantes tomaron su determinación señalando los posibles riesgos de no hacer lo correcto. El Senado tomó su determinación y es su derecho y responsabilidad. Pero, cada cual debe estar consciente que cada acción tiene resultados y hay que asumirlos y explicarlos. Eso le tocará a cada uno. No creo que el gobernador pierda liderato o apoyo con esta situación. Consistentemente, todos los estudios y encuestas de opinión resaltan la figura del gobernador porque no es un político tradicional y vino a hacer grandes cambios en las áreas de energía, educación, contributiva, salud, permisos, y otras.

Sobre Trump, lo que vi fue un gobernador valiente que exige para su pueblo la igualdad que merecemos. La reacción de Trump fue una “jocosa” ante un planteamiento al que no se puede oponer. Prefiero que mi gobernador utilice cada oportunidad que tenga para exigir la igualdad que solo nos dará la Estadidad.

GASTONIA, N.C. — Authorities arrested a former North Carolina teacher Thursday on sex offenses involving a minor.

The Gaston County Sheriff’s Office says 54-year-old Jonathan Conrad Busch of Mooresville, North Carolina is charged with two counts each of statutory rape of a child under the age of 15 and indecent liberties with a child.

Gastonia Police Officer R.S. Lewis said in an arrest warrant the indecent liberties and statutory rape charges involved the same girl and occurred between June and September 2016.

According to WCNC-TV, Busch’s case has ties to former New York congressman Anthony Weiner’s federal sexting scandal back in 2016. The name of the minor in Busch’s case matches the minor’s name in the former congressman’s sexting case.

Weiner is currently serving a 21-month sentence in federal prison after admitting to illicit online contact with a 15-year-old girl living in Gaston County.

Weiner had been married to Huma Abedin, a prominent aide to former 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, and many political experts cited his crime as a factor in Clinton’s loss to Donald Trump.

In a letter sent to parents, Lake Norman High School Principal Keith Gentle confirmed that Busch resigned from his position as a social studies teacher due to the nature of his criminal charges.

Iredell-Statesville Schools Superintendent Brady Johnson told NBC Charlotte that none of Busch’s crimes occurred on the high school’s campus nor did they involve any current or former students at the school.

Related: Teacher sentenced for sex with 15-year-old student while pregnant

According to the school system, Busch worked at Lake Norman High School for almost 15 years as a social studies teacher.

Bob Leonard, a local resident who lives just up the road from Busch’s Mooresville house, told WCNC-TV that he never spoke with him. As a grandfather, Leonard said the criminal charges concerned him.

“It’s just a little disturbing that we learn more about this,” Leonard said. “The advice I’d have to people is to pay attention and get involved and know what your kids are doing.”

Busch was arrested and released on a $20,000 bond. He’s scheduled to appear in district court on Monday, according to WCNC-TV.

Foco federal sobre otro contratista de San Juan

Las autoridades federales indagan sobre el contratista y productor Jeff Fontánez, propietario de la desaparecida empresa Buena Vibra y de la actual compañía Cosa Buena Corp., en relación al presunto esquema de corrupción en la división de compras del municipio de San Juan.

Fuentes de EL VOCERO indican que agentes del Negociado Federal de Investigaciones (FBI), averiguan sobre el empresario, sus contratos y lazos con el ayuntamiento.

De acuerdo a las fuentes, el nombre de Fontánez surgió como parte de la pesquisa que efectúa el FBI sobre supuestos actos ilegales en el municipio.

La investigación surgió tras la radicación de una demanda interpuesta contra el ayuntamiento por parte de la exdirectora de la división de compras Yadira Molina, por alegadas represalias y hostigamiento laboral luego de que la exfuncionaria denunció las presuntas prácticas ante el secretario municipal Magdiel Pérez y la Oficina del Contralor.

La pasada semana este diario informó que el propietario de BR Solutions, Corp., Leonel Pereira, está en la mirilla de las autoridades federales.

Según el recurso legal, en el municipio de San Juan se inició una práctica por parte de los supervisores de Molina de solicitar órdenes de compra en horas de la tarde para cotizaciones o la entrega de artículos para el otro día.

Se alega que el ayuntamiento tenía unos “suplidores preferidos”, quienes cobraban el triple que los suplidores regulares, debido al poco tiempo con el que se solicitaban las cotizaciones. De acuerdo al recurso legal, Pereira le informó a Molina que su compañía recibía la lista de materiales y especificaciones de compras con varios días o hasta semanas antes de que el ayuntamiento emitiera la lista oficial de los artículos.

Ni niega ni confirma

El portavoz de prensa del FBI, Carlos Osorio, dijo que no podía confirmar ni negar la existencia de la pesquisa. Entretanto, personal del municipio de San Juan no devolvió llamada solicitando su reacción a este nuevo ángulo de la pesquisa federal.

EL VOCERO se comunicó con Fontánez, quien aseguró que no ha sido contactado por el FBI y negó haber cometido actos ilegales.

“Ningún acto ilegal”

“Los contratos están en el Contralor y son públicos. No he cometido ningún acto ilegal”, afirmó.

Al ser cuestionado sobre la implicación que hizo el representante novoprogresista Georgie Navarro de que le habría pagado un viaje a Minnesota a la alcaldesa Carmen Yulín Cruz para asistir a un juego de Grandes Ligas, Fontánez respondió “no tengo nada que decir sobre esto. Es mentira”.

De acuerdo al registro de contratos de la Oficina del Contralor, Cosa Buena Group obtuvo dos contratos con el ayuntamiento capitalino que totalizaron $306,222 para las Fiestas de la Calle San Sebastián para los años 2017 y 2018.

Uno por la cantidad de $136,000 del 16 de enero de 2018 al 21 de enero de 2018 por concepto de servicios de “publicidad, de representación o artísticos”. Bajo el renglón de tipo de servicio se indica que por “servicios de productor”.

El otro contrato fue por la cantidad de $170,222 del 16 de enero de 2017 al 23 de enero de 2017 por concepto de “servicios misceláneos no personales”. Bajo el renglón de tipo de servicio indica “servicios de rotulación”.

Catorce contratos

Mientras, que la empresa Buena Vibra Group, obtuvo 14 contratos entre enero de 2013 a septiembre de 2016 por $1,159,987.

Bajo el renglón de categoría de servicios figuran: “servicios de publicidad, de representación o artísticos; compra, venta y/o alquiler de inmuebles; interagenciales y servicios misceláneos no personales”.

Según el registro del Contralor Electoral, en el 2015 Fontánez hizo una donación de $1,000 a Cruz Soto.

Por su parte, la directora de comunicaciones del municipio, Carmen Serrano, ha sostenido que “la política del municipio de San Juan es que no hacemos comentarios sobre casos sometidos ante los tribunales o bajo investigación”.

Of course, that’s a loaded question. Sure, the bureaucrats at DOJ and the FBI have a responsibility to keep the nation’s secrets and to maintain the integrity of their own investigations. But they don’t have a right to hold back information legitimately requested by Congress for its investigation into the highly questionable behavior of both the DOJ and FBI during the Russia-Trump investigation.

“A spokeswoman for House Speaker Paul Ryan said Saturday that the department (of Justice) has partially complied with subpoenas from the House Intelligence and Judiciary committees after officials turned over more than a thousand new documents this week,” the Associated Press reported.

It’s that phrase “partially complied” that sticks in our throat. Imagine “partially complying” with a judge’s order to tell the whole and complete truth in a court case. Or “partially complying” with your requirement to file you taxes. Or “partially complying” with a police officer’s lawful order to stop.

“Partial” compliance isn’t enough. Congress has repeatedly requested documents for its investigation, but has been denied. And we need to be absolutely clear here: Congress has oversight authority over both the Justice Department and FBI. So saying “No” to Congress’ request, unless it’s grounded in serious national security concerns, is not acceptable. Period.

Try impeding an investigation by DOJ or the FBI and you’ll immediately be charged with obstruction or worse, with the possibility of going to prison for many years. Why should DOJ and the FBI be exempt from the law?

Some in Congress aren’t happy about all this. Republican Rep. Mark Meadows of North Carolina is one of them.

“New reports of DOJ-FBI compliance with document requests are NOT accurate,” he tweeted. “While they have turned over additional documents, the new documents represent a small percentage of what they owe.”

“The notion that DOJ/FBI have been forthcoming with Congress is false,” he wrote.

The problem is, Congress needs to get to the bottom of what looks to be a massive conspiracy within the FBI and DOJ to boost Hillary Clinton’s election chances, while impeding Trump’s. If true, and certainly evidence amassed so far indicates it is, it would be the biggest government scandal in at least 100 years. Bigger, yes, than Watergate.

That’s why Congress has sought so much documentation from FBI Deputy Director Rod Rosenstein. They demand more than 1.4 million documents, a large amount to be sure, but have only received roughly 800,000 pages. Last week’s delivery amounted to just 1,400 pages or so. So you can see why some investigation-minded representatives, such as Meadows, aren’t satisfied.

The Justice Department and FBI had a Friday deadline to hand over the documents. They only partially complied. Yet the vow by Rep. Devin Nunes “there’s going to be hell to pay” if they didn’t comply seems to have fallen on deaf ears.

Russia Investigation: Unanswered Questions

The questions about the Russia investigation launched by the FBI and later picked up by Special Counsel Robert Mueller are many.

Congress, for instance, wants access to transcripts of conversations between “confidential human sources” — spies — and Trump campaign officials.

Congressional Republicans also seek to understand how former British spy Christopher Steele, who compiled the now-infamous Trump dossier, came to be paid by the Clinton campaign, the Democratic National Committee and the FBI. Collusion, anyone?

And they also want to look into how the FBI and DOJ used the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act to spy on the Trump campaign.

These are all legitimate issues. Stonewalling is an old strategy. Maybe the deep state is hoping for a Blue Wave in November to get Congress off its back.

Regardless, whether the U.S. remains a healthy, law-abiding republic or sinks to the level of other nations now ruled by corrupt elite bureaucracies is what’s at stake here. Who decides what gets handed over — a group of unelected bureaucrats, or the representatives of the American people?

Americans deserve answers. They should demand them.

Judge Andrew Napolitano: Can the FBI be independent?
 

mikenova shared this story .

When President Donald Trump appointed Atlanta lawyer Christopher Wray to succeed James Comey as the director of the FBI, my initial reaction was not positive. Wray is a veteran of the Department of Justice and is part of that good-old-boy DOJ network that knows how to protect its own. Indeed, when then-New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, a former U.S. attorney, needed a good criminal defense lawyer — whose millions in fees were paid by New Jersey taxpayers — he hired Wray.

Christie was never indicted in the Bridgegate scandal, but defense counsel for those who were sought Christie’s cellphone to demonstrate to jurors the governor’s involvement in the plot to shut down lanes near the George Washington Bridge for political retaliation. Christie claimed that he gave his phone to federal prosecutors, but they told the court that they did not have the phone. Where was it? In a safe of the Atlanta law firm that employed Wray.

The FBI director-to-be, sitting in his office in Atlanta, failed to provide evidence he had that he knew a federal court in Newark was seeking. This sordid episode was not dwelled upon during Wray’s confirmation hearings, at the end of which he was confirmed to a 10-year term running the FBI. So Trump’s search for an outsider who would change the Comey-led culture of political justice and run the nation’s premier law enforcement agency according to the rule of law turned up the ultimate insider.

Earlier this week, Wray testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee on the behavior of FBI agents — including the former director and former deputy director — during the criminal investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Wray had to thread a small needle.

On the one hand, the FBI is an investigative entity only. It does not decide whom or what to charge; it merely reports its findings to federal prosecutors in conjunction with their presentation of evidence to grand juries. As such, the FBI is subject to the DOJ prosecutors for whom it works, and the DOJ, of course, works for the president.

On the other hand, because both the DOJ and the FBI are guided by the ethical rules that govern lawyers and by the values of the rule of law implicit in American culture and recognized by the courts, the DOJ enjoys some independence from the president, and the FBI enjoys some independence from the DOJ. Principles such as equal protection under the law and due process of law protect life, liberty and property and trump instructions of the president to the DOJ and instructions of the DOJ to the FBI. Stated differently, the FBI must go where the evidence of crime leads it, and the DOJ must prosecute when the evidence is lawfully sufficient, no matter the subject.

This obviously becomes complex and treacherous when the president is the subject of the FBI’s investigation, because one of the rule-of-law principles is that no one can be the judge or prosecutor in his own case. And it was in that context that Director Wray testified earlier this week. His testimony was largely about the response of the present-day FBI to the political excesses of the Comey-led FBI as articulated in a 568-page report issued by the inspector general of the DOJ.

That report found that there was political bias at the FBI and the DOJ in favor of Clinton while she was the subject of a criminal investigation and that there was political prejudice against Trump at the same time. But it also found that the bias and prejudice were not the deciding factors in the ill-advised decision by Comey to announce that Clinton would not be charged and then to recount all the damning evidence the FBI had amassed against her or in his decision to reopen and then reclose the investigation.

In Wray’s testimony, I detected not a political defense of the FBI but rather a careful assessment of the constitutional relationship between Congress and the FBI that demonstrated a grasp of nuance and a defense of the rule of law.

Wray has been battling the House Intelligence Committee over its demands to get a peek at a portion of special counsel Robert Mueller’s files on the president. The committee has threatened Wray and his boss, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, with censure, contempt and even impeachment if Wray fails to deliver the files. Wray’s message to the committee, uttered in his Senate testimony, was that the FBI will follow the law and not surrender privileged information.

A privilege is the ability of the entity that enjoys it to prevent the revelation of information that the privilege covers. The attorney-client and priest-penitent privileges, for example, permit the client or the penitent to prevent the lawyer or the priest from revealing their communications. Wray knows that law enforcement, too, enjoys privileges, such as the obligation to keep matters that have been presented to a grand jury, the thoughts and impressions and strategies of investigators and prosecutors, and information developed from confidential sources secret.

By signaling that he will honor those privileges in the investigation of President Trump, Wray is upholding the rule of law. Were he not to do this, he’d be spilling the contents of a criminal file to the political allies of the subject of the file — a spill that the law would not condone because it would put the president above the law.

In defending these rule-of-law privileges, Director Wray is upholding the independence of the FBI against an unforgiving political onslaught orchestrated by the president’s allies. I hope this is resolved in a court of law and not in the court of public opinion. Public opinion is a reed that moves with the wind. The rule of law is a rock that keeps us free.

The disgrace of Comey’s FBI | Editorials
 

mikenova shared this story from www.hannapub.com – RSS Results in ouachitacitizen/opinion/editorials of type article.

The long-awaited Inspector General’s report on the FBI’s handling of the Hillary Clinton investigation makes for depressing reading for anyone who cares about American democracy. Self-government depends on public trust in its institutions, especially law enforcement. The IG’s 568-page report makes clear that the FBI under former director James Comey betrayed that public trust in a way not seen since J. Edgar Hoover.

We use the Hoover analogy advisedly, realizing that the problem in this case was not rampant illegal spying. Though IG Michael Horowitz’s conclusions are measured, his facts are damning. They show that Mr. Comey abused his authority, broke with long-established Justice Department norms, and deceived his superiors and the public.

While the IG says Mr. Comey’s decisions were not the result of “political bias,” he presided over an investigating team that included agents who clearly were biased against Donald Trump. The damage to the bureau’s reputation—and to thousands of honest agents—will take years to repair.

The issue of political bias is almost beside the point. The IG scores Mr. Comey for “ad hoc decisionmaking based on his personal views.” Like Hoover, Mr. Comey believed that he alone could protect the public trust. And like Hoover, this hubris led him to make egregious mistakes of judgment that the IG says “negatively impacted the perception of the FBI and the department as fair administrators of justice.”

The report scores Mr. Comey in particular for his “conscious decision not to tell [Justice] Department leadership about his plans to independently announce” an end to the investigation at his July 5 press conference in which he exonerated but criticized Mrs. Clinton. And the IG also scores his action 11 days before the 2016 presidential election, on October 28, to send a letter to Congress saying the investigation had been reopened.

The decision to prosecute belongs to the Attorney General and Justice, not the FBI. And the FBI does not release derogatory information on someone against whom it is not bringing charges. Regarding the October letter informing Congress that the FBI was renewing the investigation, FBI policy is not to announce investigations. “We found unpersuasive Comey’s explanation,” deadpans the IG.

“We found that it was extraordinary and insubordinate for Comey to conceal his intentions from his superiors, the Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General, for the admitted purpose of preventing them from telling him not to make the statement, and to instruct his subordinates in the FBI to do the same,” says the report.

“Comey waited until the morning of his press conference to inform [Attorney General Loretta] Lynch and [Deputy Attorney General Sally ] Yates of his plans to hold one without them, and did so only after first notifying the press. As a result, Lynch’s office learned about Comey’s plans via press inquiries rather than from Comey. Moreover, when Comey spoke with Lynch he did not tell her what he intended to say in his statement.”

All of this underscores the case that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein made when he advised President Trump in May 2017 that he should fire Mr. Comey. The President’s mistake was not firing Mr. Comey immediately upon taking office on Jan. 20, 2017, as some of us advised at the time.

As for political bias, the IG devotes a chapter to the highly partisan texts exchanged over FBI phones between FBI personnel. The IG says he found no evidence that political bias affected investigative decisions, but the details will be fodder for those who think otherwise.

The report also chronicles a long list of other questionable judgments by the FBI and Justice. These include waiting until late October to announce that the FBI was seeking a search warrant for Anthony Weiner’s laptop, though “virtually every fact that was cited” to justify the move had been known a month before.

The unavoidable conclusion is that Mr. Comey’s FBI became a law unto itself, accountable to no one but the former director’s self-righteous conscience. His refusal to follow proper guidelines interfered with a presidential election campaign in a way that has caused millions of Americans in both parties to justifiably cry foul.

This should never happen in a democracy, and steps must be taken so that it never does again. Mr. Horowitz deserves credit for an investigation that was thorough, informative and unplagued by leaks. But it is not the final word. Next week he will be testifying before Congress to flesh out and clarify his findings. Congress should also call FBI agents as witnesses.

The larger damage here is to trust in institutions that are vital to self-government. Mr. Trump will use the facts to attack the FBI, but most agents are honest and nonpartisan. Christopher Wray, the new FBI director, promised Thursday to implement the IG’s recommendations, but his cleanup task is larger. He can start by ending the FBI’s stonewall of Congress on document requests.

Mr. Wray and Attorney General Jeff Sessions have to understand that radical measures are needed to restore public trust in both the FBI and Justice Department. If they won’t do it, someone else must.

Inspector general FBI report is a disgrace – Las Vegas Review-Journal

In response to the report from Inspector General Michael Horowitz regarding the FBI: FBI Director Christopher Wray excusing subversive behavior completely erases trust in the Department of Justice.

Upper-level DOJ personnel are not summer hires or neophyte civil service employees. They are highly trained, highly educated, highly benefited professionals with an exceptionally keen sense of right from wrong and equity over bias. Most have taken an oath of allegiance to this country and to lady justice. But now, many illegal transgressions have been exposed.

The criminal, seditious and/or treasonous acts that have occurred should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Such behavior is not above the law.

Have we lost our Wray?

We hope we’re wrong. But James Comey’s replacement as head of the FBI, Christopher Wray, doesn’t give us much hope for a turnaround at the embattled agency.

“We may never know what happened to James Comey. It may become one of the great enigmas of our time. His solid reputation has become this generation’s Jimmy Hoffa – suddenly vanished from sight, perhaps buried in a putrid landfill of dirty politics.”

— Augusta Chronicle editorial, July 2016, after James Comey’s bizarre, unsupported exoneration of Hillary Clinton

We hope we’re wrong. But James Comey’s replacement as head of the FBI, Christopher Wray, doesn’t give us much hope for a turnaround at the embattled agency.

To fix a problem, you first have to acknowledge it.

Send a letter to the editor

Instead, in his formal reaction last week to an Inspector General’s report of shredded impartiality and permissive procedures at the FBI under Comey, Wray sounded like the rush chairman’s slick, disingenuous defense of his debauched fraternity in the movie Animal House.

Using a twisted series of non sequiturs, the character asks if valid allegations of his fraternity’s reckless revelry are “an indictment of our entire American society? Well, you can do whatever you want to us, but we’re not going to sit here and listen to you badmouth the United States of America!”

Not that the FBI is the Delta House. Far from it. It is filled bottom to near-top with good men and women of high ideals and integrity. But Wray’s haughty defense of the agency was blissfully dismissive of the egregious affronts to equal justice and fairness under his predecessor – who allowed a handful of Democrat partisans to back over the Constitution and any sense of neutrality in the Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump probes.

“Wray’s performance was worse than disappointing,” writes New York columnist Michael Goodwin. “It was infuriating proof that it will take more than one election to change the corrupt culture of Washington.”

Indeed, Wray’s tone conveyed more than indifference to the scandalous goings-on under Comey – agents plotting to prevent Trump’s ascendancy, rubbing elbows with the Clinton camp, expressing profane contempt for Trump voters, accepting bribes from reporters whom they leaked information to, and more.

Wray seems to think a series of “policies, procedures, and training” will fix any slight shortcomings at the agency. How in the world can you train out such virulent political bias? A strongly worded PowerPoint?

Send a letter to the editor

Then, setting up a straw man – that “nothing in the report impugns the integrity of our workforce as a whole, or the FBI as an institution,” which nobody has ever claimed – he channels the Animal House rush chairman: “The FBI’s men and women are doing all this work with the unfailing fidelity to our Constitution and laws that it demands, the bravery that it deserves, and the integrity that the American people rightly expect.”

Unfailing fidelity? Doesn’t the IG report kind of destroy that argument?

“The way Wray tells it, the FBI is doing just peachy,” writes the Washington Examiner’s Becket Adams. “Did Wray even read the report?”

Either way, he apparently won’t stand here and listen to the rest of us badmouth the United States of America.

A la luz diferencias entre alcaldesa y Calixto Rodríguez | Gobierno
 

mikenova shared this story from www.elvocero.com – RSS Results in gobierno of type article.

Por cerca de tres años, ocasionalmente el tema de las malas relaciones entre la alcaldesa de San Juan, Carmen Yulín Cruz Soto, y el comisionado de la Policía Municipal, Guillermo Calixto Rodríguez, salía a la luz pública y se anticipaba la renuncia del funcionario, finalmente formalizada en la noche del martes.

Como ejemplo, EL VOCERO reseñó el 4 de octubre de 2016 que “las relaciones entre la alcaldesa de la capital Carmen Yulín Cruz Soto y el comisionado de la Policía Municipal, Guillermo Calixto, se encuentran deterioradas desde hace bastante tiempo y tras el arresto el sábado del activista Alberto ‘Tito Kayak’ de Jesús Mercado por bajar la bandera de Estados Unidos y colocar la de Puerto Rico durante un concierto del grupo Cultura Profética en el Estadio Hiram Bithorn están en cero”.

En aquella ocasión el arresto de Tito Kayak provocó reacciones como la del licenciado William Ramírez Hernández, director ejecutivo de la Unión Americana de Libertades Civiles (ACLU) en la Isla, quien emitió un comunicado exigiendo que la Policía, el municipio de San Juan y el Estado Libre Asociado desistieran de perseguir y detener a ciudadanos por incurrir en una protesta simbólica cobijada por la Constitución.

La salida de Calixto Rodríguez del municipio se pospuso por las cercanías de las elecciones generales de noviembre de 2016.

Para esa fecha, este rotativo supo de acercamientos de allegados de la alcaldesa a un coronel jubilado y a otro coronel activo en la Policía, ambos vinculados al Partido Popular Democrático (PPD), ofreciéndoles el puesto.

Una serie de incidentes, atribuidos por conocedores al mal genio de Cruz Soto, fue minando la relación entre ambos. Para finales de 2017, Calixto Rodríguez había comunicado su intención de irse de la Policía Municipal, donde mediante contrato devengaba algo más de $90,000 anuales.

Sin embargo, no se fue y siguieron los problemas entre la alcaldesa y el comisionado, sumándosele a Calixto Rodríguez otras situaciones como la investigación estancada en la Fiscalía por supuestamente agredir a una agente estatal que fue asignada a las pasadas Fiestas de la Calle San Sebastián.

Calixto Rodríguez se acogió a su derecho constitucional para no declarar en el caso de la agente que denunció la supuesta agresión. Tras casi seis meses, fuentes policiales de EL VOCERO señalan que no se han radicado cargos por presiones de distinta índole.

Hace varias semanas un agente municipal pereció trágicamente en un accidente mientras ejercía sus funciones en la autopista Luis A. Ferré, Oficiales de la Uniformada aseguran que la alcaldesa le reclamó al comisionado por no haber utilizado los recursos de la Policía Municipal para escoltar el cortejo fúnebre. En su lugar se usaron recursos del Negociado de la Policía.

El pasado fin de semana se caldearon nuevamente los ánimos cuando un brote de violencia cobró 10 vidas en la ciudad capital entre la noche del viernes y la madrugada del lunes. Aunque oficialmente nadie se expresa, a la Policía le cuesta realizar labores con los guardias municipales de San Juan, cosa que logran con facilidad con los de Carolina, Ponce y Bayamón.

Calixto Rodríguez habría ingresado a la Policía Municipal de San Juan entre 1982 y 1983 y en 1997 pasó a ser uno de los encargados de la seguridad de la alcaldesa. Posteriormente, se convirtió en policía estatal y se jubiló en 2013, aunque mantuvo contratos con el municipio.

EL VOCERO solicitó ayer una entrevista con Cruz Soto sobre la salida de Calixto Rodríguez y no se obtuvo respuesta.

The commissioner of the Municipal Police of San Juan resigns
 

mikenova shared this story .

The major of San Juan , Carmen Yulín Cruz Soto, accepted today, Tuesday, the resignation of the Commissioner of the Police of said municipality, Guillermo Calixto, effective on June 15.

The first municipal executive said in a press release that from June 16, Deputy Commissioner Raymond Ferrer will be assuming the position on an interim basis.

He maintained that ” besides, immediately, I am designating Captain Ferrer to attend the special operation that we are coordinating in support of the state police for the increase in the criminal incidence that occurred last week in the areas of Río Piedras and Cupey. I am sure that Captain Ferrer will perform, as he has done up to now, with the highest sense of responsibility, the tasks assigned to continue taking all the measures at our disposal to combat the criminal activity that, unfortunately, has experienced an increase in the level of Puerto Rich”.

Calixto Rodríguez is commissioner of the Municipal Police since January 2013, when Cruz began his work as mayor of San Juan.

The commander was one of the agents of the State Police who sued the municipal government of San Juan, for the incident of the Betsy cafeteria, located in the Caimito neighborhood, in which the mayor Jorge Santini was involved.

La alcaldesa de San Juan, Carmen Yulín Cruz Soto, admitió que ejerce control sobre las expresiones de todos sus subalternos en el municipio, pero la única excepción a esa normativa lo será el ahora comisionado de la Policía municipal, José Caldero López.

“Cuando tú asumes una posición como la que está asumiendo Caldero tienes que saber que quien está por encima de ti jerárquicamente te va a dar todo su apoyo. No solamente él tiene todo mi apoyo, sino que usualmente, y se los digo aquí, nosotros le requerimos a ustedes, los medios de prensa, que vengan a la oficina de comunicaciones con los directores para que los directores entonces hablen con ustedes”, expresó la alcaldesa en rueda de prensa en el Coliseo Roberto Clemente.

“El coronel Caldero tiene mano libre en hablar con quien él estime necesario en términos de los medios de prensa, sin recibir autorización previa ni de esta servidora ni de la directora de comunicaciones”, agregó Cruz Soto.

En el caso del municipio de San Juan, la práctica común dentro el equipo de comunicaciones que mantiene la alcaldesa es referir cualquier petición de entrevista sobre cualquier asunto de la ciudad capital a la propia Cruz Soto. Esto aún cuando la alcaldesa no sea el recurso con el peritaje en el tema. El obstáculo al libre flujo de la información se agrava si se toma en cuenta que, como ha sucedido, la funcionaria no está disponible al momento de la solicitud, por estar en alguna actividad en uno de sus múltiples viajes fuera del país.

De hecho, la experiencia de este medio ha sido que los jefes de dependencias municipales en San Juan no están autorizados a emitir comentario alguno a los medios y referir la petición a la directora de la Oficina de Comunicación, Carmen Serrano. Por su parte, Serrano ha indicado en varias ocasiones a este medio que la alcaldesa es la única persona que representa el municipio, por lo que funcionarios no están autorizados a hablar con la prensa.

Esta mordaza que impone el municipio se pudo apreciar en marzo de este año cuando se difundió un video de la alcaldesa regañando a un empleado municipal y verbalizando que no puede hablar con la prensa.

Servicios profesionales de Caldero López son a $100 por hora

Caldero López fue contratado por el municipio el pasado viernes 15 de junio bajo la modalidad de servicios profesionales. Esto pese a que el municipio cuenta con el puesto de Comisionado de la Policía, el cual ocupaba Guillermo Calixto antes de su salida.

Tal como adelantó la alcaldesa durante la rueda de prensa, el costo anual del contrato con Caldero López es de $120,000 al año. No obstante, el contrato actual que otorgó el municipio tiene vigencia hasta el próximo 30 de junio, que corresponde al final del presente año fiscal, por una cuantía de $10,000.

La práctica de culminar contratos el 30 de junio de cada año es común dentro el gobierno, como también es común la renovación y establecimiento de nuevos contratos a partir de julio, cuando entra en vigor el nuevo presupuesto del gobierno.

El contrato establece una tarifa de $100 por hora para los servicios de Caldero López. Entre sus responsabilidades figura la coordinación de las dependencias del orden público de San Juan, establecer estrategias anticrimen, servir de enlace con la Policía para la coordinación de adiestramientos, participar en reuniones del equipo municipal y redactar informes estadísticos sobre querellas ciudadanas y delitos,  entre otras.

Curiosamente, aun cuando la alcaldesa eximió a Caldero López de la mordaza impuesta sobre otros funcionarios municipales, el contrato contiene una cláusula de confidencialidad que dispone que en caso que el comisionado divulgue información de índole confidencial para el municipio, sea de forma oral, escrita o de manera electrónica a cualquier persona, se considerará razón suficiente para terminar el acuerdo.

Carmen Yulín 2020 y el efecto Caldero | Opinión
 

mikenova shared this story from www.elvocero.com – RSS Results in opinion of type article.

“Para nosotros una sola vida que se ha perdido es suficiente”. Así comenzó la alcaldesa de San Juan, Carmen Yulín Cruz Soto, la conferencia de prensa que se llevó a cabo ayer en el Coliseo Roberto Clemente para anunciar la designación del coronel José Luis Caldero como comisionado de la Policía Municipal capitalina.

En Análisis 630 por NotiUno habíamos adelantado el pasado viernes que este nombramiento estaba ya adjudicado, lo cual nos llevó a anunciar el título de esta columna, pues entendemos que políticamente es un nombramiento de IMPACTO.

La alcaldesa de San Juan vio la crisis en su abandonado municipio cuando a principios de junio de 2018 se reportaron seis asesinatos en ese primer fin de semana. Según datos publicados en este periódico por el reportero Miguel Rivera Puig, podemos ver que marzo, junio y julio en los pasados años han sido meses calientes con respecto a los asesinatos en la ciudad capital.

Caldero, por su parte, trae en su hoja de servicio el haber comandado durante tres años la superintendencia de la Policía de Puerto Rico bajo la administración de Alejandro García Padilla; unos tres años de baja en prácticamente todas las estadísticas de criminalidad en Puerto Rico. Aun cuando no fue la primera opción de García Padilla para la superintendencia, logró lo que otros no habían podido.

Bajo su mando en la superintendencia, el coronel Caldero dio ascensos a tutiplén, los cuales redundarían en apoyo a sus nuevas funciones. No se ocupó de la División de Drogas y Narcóticos como se requería en aquel momento, lo cual luego llevó a varios arrestos por parte del Negociado Federal de Investigaciones (FBI).

En la conferencia de prensa para anunciar la designación del coronel Caldero, la alcaldesa habló más de las estadísticas de criminalidad en su municipio que de los atributos y necesidades de la Policía Municipal.

Esas conversaciones y negociaciones entre la alcaldesa y Caldero deben haber sido bien interesantes.

Caldero de por sí es un hábil y experimentado negociador y la alcaldesa es de por sí mandona y exhibe quién manda.

Cómo esos dos jueyes machos se van a llevar está por verse. Lo que sí es CLARO para mí es que la alcaldesa necesita urgentemente de Caldero y no él de ella. Por ende, estoy seguro que Caldero le debe haber establecido los límites de su entrometimiento y hasta dónde no será aceptable el maltrato verbal a sus subordinados.

La alcaldesa va a tener que tragar hondo, suprimir sus impulsos de rabia y malacrianzas para que esto funcione, pues si funciona políticamente ella luciría espectacular.

Si ambos logran lo que Caldero anunció ayer en cuanto a “traer paz y seguridad a los residentes y visitantes de San Juan”, esto la pondría a ella en una posición muy ventajosa para lo que decida hacer políticamente de camino al 2020.

Ayer en la conferencia de prensa la alcaldesa llevó varios mensajes, mensajes subliminales, pero directos.

El primero fue que ella no es “anti yankee” y que puede y está trabajando a “full swing” con las autoridades federales.

Esto quedó demostrado con la presencia del “special agent in charge” del FBI para Puerto Rico e Islas Vírgenes, Douglas Leff. También envió un mensaje de compromiso con la reforma de la Policía estatal al invitar y estar allí presente el monitor (para mí es el oficial de probatoria de la Policía de Puerto Rico), Arnaldo Claudio.

La presencia del máximo líder en Puerto Rico del FBI es significativa, pues según se ha publicado en este periódico por Melissa Correa, el FBI está investigando malos manejos en la división de compras del municipio de San Juan, lo cual me llama la atención que la jefa de Fiscalía federal, Rosa Emilia (qué se harían si no nos tuvieran) Rodríguez no estuviese allí.

Mis fuentes me indican que durante el almuerzo en la mesa donde estaban los federales y Caldero se acordó compartir información (sobre la criminalidad) entre los federales y Caldero, algo nunca antes visto. Eso además de las motoras que Caldero pidió y que ya se las aprobó la alcaldesa.

El efecto Caldero ya comenzó a rendir frutos; ahora hay que ver qué va a hacer el gobernador Ricardo Rosselló con la Policía estatal, la cual está en TOTAL y COMPLETO ABANDONO, muy similar a la de la alcaldesa.

Algo bueno va a salir de esta competencia, al menos por ahora para los residentes y visitantes de San Juan; el resto de Puerto Rico tendrá que esperar.

Puerto Rico Officials Investigated for Corruption During Hurricane Relief
 

mikenova shared this story .

Corruption in Puerto Rico may have been the cause of U.S. relief supplies not reaching those in need following Hurricane Maria in September 2017.

The administration of San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz (D), who made headlines for her criticisms of President Donald Trump’s handling of the relief efforts, is now being investigated for alleged corruption.

According to a local news report from El Vocero de Puerto Rico, the FBI is investigating several suppliers for alleged corruption in San Juan.

It says the investigation was launched after former procurement director Yadira Molina filed a lawsuitclaiming she faced punishment for reporting illegal activities to the local comptroller. The investigation has since grown to include several contractors.

“On February 21, Molina sued the city council after reporting alleged acts of corruption in the shopping division in the town hall under the administration of Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz Soto,” the report says.

The complaint states that Molina was blocked from her right “to report wrongdoing in her capacity as a private citizen, not as a public employee.” It says she was retaliated against for reporting an allegedly rigged system and was fired for attempting to report corruption, and includes other additional claims.

There were many reports following the hurricane that U.S. supplies were trapped in the ports, with local corruption preventing proper distribution. The claims were largely dismissed by legacy news outlets as conspiracy, and were used to frame Trump’s relief efforts in a negative light. The Trump administration later bypassed local officials, and the U.S. military began delivering the goods directly.

Carlos Osorio, the FBI media representative at the San Juan field office, told The Epoch Times in October 2017 that the FBI received several complaints of alleged corruption in the distribution of relief goods, and that the FBI is required to look into criminal complaints.

Comey: “I Didn’t Know That I Knew” Weiner Was Married to Huma Abedin
 

mikenova shared this story from Frontpage Mag.

James Comey doesn’t know a whole lot. Whenever he’s asked to testify, out spill a lot of Clintonesque claims of ignorance. But even by the standard of things that Comey doesn’t know, this section from the IG report is truly impressive.

James Comey doesn’t know what he knows.

Act 1: Comey plays really dumb.

“Comey told the OIG that he recalled first learning of the presence of the additional emails on the Weiner laptop at some point in early October 2016, although Comey said it was possible this could have occurred in late September. Comey explained: I was aware sometime in the first week or two of October that there was a laptop that a criminal squad had seized from Anthony Weiner in New York and someone said to me that—and I’m thinking it might have been Andrew McCabe, but someone said to me kind of in passing, they’re trying to figure out whether it has any connection to the Midyear investigation. And the reason that’s so vague in my head is I think—I never imagined that there might be something on a guy named Anthony Weiner’s computer that might connect to the Hillary Clinton email investigation, so I kind of just put it out of my mind.”

Aww shucks. You can’t expect a small town sheriff to stay on top of all this big city stuff. Who knows which aspiring politician the chief gatekeeper to Hillary Clinton is married to? Not an outsider like Jimbo Comey.

Act 2: Comey plays really, really dumb

“Comey described himself as having a “reasonably good memory” and speculated, “[T]he reason I didn’t index it is, it was a passing thing that almost seemed like he might be kidding, and so I don’t think I indexed it hard.”

Which FBI bigwig hasn’t dropped a joke about a presidential candidate’s classified emails illegally ending up on a sex offender suspect’s computer? Wait till you hear the one about the engineer and the stolen atom bomb plans. Or the one about the Muslim terror plot against a Mohammed cartoon contest in Texas.

“And I think it was the beginning of October and then I think it disappears from my memory. And then I remember for certain when Andy emails me, I think it’s the 27th [of October] saying, the Midyear team needs to meet with you urgently or right away or something.”

It’s funny how Comey’s funny memory improves when the thing he’s fudging is documented. It’s…. Clintonesque.

Act 3: Comey doesn’t know what he knows.

“We asked Comey to explain why this initial information about the Weiner laptop did not “index” with him given that Abedin was closely connected to Clinton. Comey stated, “I don’t know that I knew that [Weiner] was married to Huma Abedin at the time.”

Comey doesn’t know what he knows? I hadn’t realized that a Higher Loyalty was meant in a Cheech and Chong way.

This is what you claim when you know there may be documented evidence of you knowing what you claim not to know.

There are known knowns, known unknowns, and unknown unknowns. Also Comey unknowns.

‘GOOD POINT!’ James Comey’s professed ignorance about Weiner-Abedin marriage gets ‘even MORE disturbing’ – twitchy.com
 

mikenova shared this story from twitchy.com.

As Twitchy told you last week, the OIG report revealed that super-brilliant former FBI Director James Comey had claimed he was unaware that Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin were married when he found out about the Hillary Clinton emails on Huma Abedin’s laptop. Assuming he was telling the truth about that and was straight-up admitting to being the only person on the face of the earth who didn’t know Weiner and Abedin were married, this raises a very important point:

And you thought Comey couldn’t possibly come out of this looking any worse.

It’s pretty clear at this point that Comey’s either a liar or an idiot. Neither of those options is comforting given that he was, you know, the director of the friggin’ FBI.

Accurate.

Secret FBI files on 100,000 Puerto Ricans…thousands arrested…Chaos in 1950 Puerto Rico
 

mikenova shared this story from WAR AGAINST ALL PUERTO RICANS.

Book - 12-10

              Justice is incidental to law and order. 

– FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover

Starting in the mid-1930s, and continuing for over half a century, the FBI developed a secret information program in Puerto Rico – it was called carpetas. These were secret police files, containing intimate personal information. The files were built by a network of police officers, confidential informants, FBI agents – and the amount of information they contained was staggering.

Over 100,000 Puerto Ricans had carpetas opened on them. Of these, 74,412 were under “political” police surveillance. An additional 60,776 carpetas were opened on vehicles, boats, and organizations. Carpetas were even opened on geographic areas: entire neighborhoods had carpetas filed on them by the FBI. Eventually, the carpetas became a part of the larger COINTELPRO program developed jointly by the FBI and CIA, to monitor and suppress political dissent against the U.S.

Over time, the carpetas eventually totaled 1.8 million pages. The average carpeta contained roughly 20 pages but others were more extensive. The file on Albizu Campos filled two boxes with 4,700 pages.

The information in carpetas included school transcripts; employment history; religious practice; political affiliations; club memberships; bank accounts; property holdings; taxes paid; family and marital records; travel history; auto registration and license plates; meetings attended; publications written or received. They also included personal information: friends, business partners, sexual partners, mistresses, gigolos, debtors and creditors, personal letters (intercepted at the post office), recorded phone calls, photos, wedding lists, laundry tickets and “miscellaneous items.”

The carpetas were used to imprison people, ruin their careers, fire them from their jobs, terminate their education, and permanently discredit them – even if they weren’t members of the Nationalist Party.

One stunning carpeta is the file on Luis Muñoz Marín, the first “democratically elected” governor of Puerto Rico.  His file included this:

FBI Document

According to this document, Governor Luis Muñoz Marín was a narcotics addict, and the U.S. government knew it as of April 1943. Since this information was never released by the FBI, it appears that the U.S. government withheld this information from the general public, so that it could have some “very dirty laundry” on Luis Muñoz Marín.


Gov. Muñoz Marín (seated), after a rough night

In this manner, the U.S. acquired enormous control over Luis Muñoz Marín when he became the “democratically elected” governor of Puerto Rico in 1948. They could expose him as a narcotics addict at any time…so they had the “democratically elected governor” on a very short leash, indeed.

This is a prime example of how the carpetas program was used to control the politics and society of Puerto Rico: through fear, intimidation and outright blackmail. The program was so pervasive, that the following cartoon ran in a Puerto Rican newspaper:

cartoon - Carpeta
Yo se precisamente como cortar tu pelo...
lo veo aquí en tu carpeta.

In the cartoon, a barber tells his client, “I know precisely how to cut your hair…I see it right here in your carpeta.”

A government fund was established in 1999 to assist some of the victims of carpetas. Later in 2000, FBI Director Louis J. Freeh admitted in a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing that: “(T)he FBI did operate a program that did tremendous destruction to many people, to the country and certainly to the FBI.” Freeh then vowed to “redress some of the egregious illegal action, maybe criminal action that occurred in the past.”  Unfortunately by that time, the damage was already done – and the degree of harm caused by these carpetas, had become incalculable. This damage extended beyond any individual or group, and even beyond the issue of independence.

As befits a sun-kissed island with wonderfully fertile soil, Puerto Ricans were an open, gregarious, cheerful people – but sixty years of carpetaspolice informants, and neighbors spying upon each other, had affected the national character of Puerto Rico. It had burned fear, secrecy, lying, betrayal and mistrust into its collective experience.

The carpetas drove a permanent wound into the psyche of Puerto Rico. It is a wound that may never fully heal.

For a more complete understanding of how 100,000 Puerto Ricans were followed by FBI agents, please read…

UN Report on Extreme Poverty Blames Puerto Rico’s Political Status

United Nations Special Rapporteur on Extreme Poverty Philip Alston has presented a sharply critical report on the USA to the UN Human Right Council in which he singles out Puerto Rico for its unique political problems.

“Political rights and poverty are inextricably linked in Puerto Rico,” Alston continued.

“If it were a state, Puerto Rico would be the poorest state in the Union. But Puerto Rico is not a state, it is a mere ‘territory.’ Puerto Ricans have no representative with full voting rights in Congress and, unless living stateside, cannot vote for the President of the United States. In a country that likes to see itself as the oldest democracy in the world and a staunch defender of political rights on the international stage, more than 3 million people who live on the island have no power in their own capital.”

Puerto Rico’s status comes up in the U.N.’s decolonization committee every year.

“It is not for me to suggest any resolution to the hotly contested issue of Puerto Rico’s constitutional status,” Alston said in the report. “But what is clear is that many, probably most, Puerto Ricans believe deeply that they are presently colonized and that the US Congress is happy to leave them in the no-man’s land of no meaningful Congressional representation and no ability to really move to govern themselves. In light of recent Supreme Court jurisprudence and Congress’s adoption of PROMESA there would seem to be good reason for the UN Decolonization Committee to conclude that the island is no longer a self-governing territory.”

The question of Puerto Rico’s political status arose in the report on poverty because the territorial status affects Puerto Rico’s financial status.

“Puerto Rico has a fiscal deficit and a deficit of political rights, and the two are not easy to untangle,” said Alston.

Puerto Rico newspaper El Nuevo Día interviewed Alston and heard concerns that the PROMESA fiscal oversight board’s austerity measures would “sink the poor into a situation of greater poverty.”

The report makes a number of general suggestions for the United States which apply to poverty across the nation. For Puerto Rico, however, the emphasis in the report is on the territory’s political status.

The post UN Report on Extreme Poverty Blames Puerto Rico’s Political Status appeared first on Puerto Rico Report.

Anti-Trump FBI ‘the missed story of all time,’ says Seymour Hersh
 

mikenova shared this story from WND.

fbi_seal

Many things have been going on in the FBI in recent years, and they haven’t all been about investigating criminals.

The biggest story has been how the bureau has become a weapon against President Trump.

That’s according to Seymour Hersh, the Pulitzer-winning investigative reporter who exposed the My Lai massacre in Vietnam in 1969 and has more knowledge of journalism’s biggest stories over the years than almost anyone.

His comment came in an interview with Elon Green that appeared in Columbia Journalism Review.

The two were talking about, among other things, Hersh’s book “Reporter” and his current book about former Vice President Dick Cheney.

Hersh said the establishment media largely missed the significance of the Hillary Clinton email scandal.

“They had no idea what a good story it was,” he said.

Then he unleashed on the FBI.

“In the book I’m writing, I can segue into this stuff; I’m writing a lot about what was going on in the FBI. There was a lot going on that was counter-Trump, I will tell you that,” he said.

“I’m telling you, it’s the missed story of all time.”

But he didn’t elaborate.

WND columnist David Limbaugh would concur with Hersh, writing last month that “the real story” is how the FBI and other federal agencies were weaponized to protect Hillary Clinton and damage Trump.

“The Department of Justice, especially the FBI, bent over backward to protect [Hillary] Clinton and bent over forward to harm Trump. Despite those efforts, the stubborn facts have emerged, thanks to patriots relentlessly pursuing the truth. More will be revealed as the Obama-Clinton glass house continues to shatter, but there’s already enough to make an objective person gasp. If Clinton had won the election, this evidence would have remained buried, and the power-abusing left would have been emboldened to continue to thwart the rule of law and target its opponents. Before you say it’s preposterous that Obama or Clinton would have politicized and weaponized government agencies, remember the actions of Obama’s IRS and EPA,” he wrote.

His list of how the FBI protected Hillary Clinton to help her win the election:

  • Then-FBI Director James Comey wrote a letter exonerating her in advance of interviewing her and other key witnesses.
  • Comey presented a strong case against her yet shielded her from prosecution.
  • Comey claimed that Christopher Steele’s dossier was not an indispensable part of the FISA warrant application, when everyone has admitted it was. He said he didn’t know that the Clintons had paid for the dossier.
  • Comey earlier said there was no spying against Trump and later said there was but the “informants” were carefully regulated.
  • The FBI gave immunity like candy in the Clinton case and allowed two fact witnesses to sit in on the belated Clinton interview as her lawyers.
  • The FBI claimed to have lost five months’ worth of texts between adulterous FBI honchos Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, which the inspector general found in less than a week.
  • Then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch met privately with Bill Clinton while Hillary was under investigation. Lynch instructed Comey to refer to the Clinton investigation as a “matter” instead of an investigation.
  • Strzok texted Page after Trump and Clinton became the nominees, “Now the pressure really starts to finish MYE” – meaning “midyear exam,” the FBI’s code word for the Clinton email probe. Page responded, “It sure does.” They were desperate to wrap up the Clinton investigation to prevent Trump’s election. Page was legal counsel to then-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe. The lovebirds noted that Obama wanted “to know everything.” As Newt Gingrich said, with all that was going on under his watch, it’s inconceivable that Obama and his adviser Valerie Jarrett didn’t know about it.

And Limbaugh listed the bureau’s moves against Trump:

  • The FBI planted a spy or spies in the Trump campaign with no real evidence (beyond wishful thinking, anecdotal minutiae and hearsay rumors) that there was any nefarious connection between the campaign and Russia. It appears these spies were there not just to eavesdrop but to lure the Trump campaign into the very conduct they were pretending to investigate – trying to “honey-trap” them.
  • The government opened a counterintelligence investigation against Trump without any evidence of a crime.
  • Based on a disgraceful leak from Comey, the DOJ appointed a special counsel to investigate the Trump campaign without any evidence of a crime and without specifying any crime in the appointment memo – and such specificity is required by law. Recognizing this, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein surreptitiously amended his appointment memo, but he still won’t reveal its content to congressional investigators.
  • The FBI deceived the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court four times by presenting the Steele dossier, paid for by the Clinton machine and based on unsubstantiated opposition research, as legitimate evidence and disclosing none of its origins to the court. It also fraudulently presented a news article sourced to the same Christopher Steele as corroborating the dossier. The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act requires substantiated evidence; it’s a strict standard because of the extraordinary encroachments on privacy it entails. The FBI also concealed from the court that Steele had been fired by the FBI.
  • The government has been stonewalling and scapegoating Rep. Devin Nunes and other congressional investigators for jeopardizing national security in demanding that documents be unredacted. Invariably, when the redactions are removed, we see that no security interests were involved but that the government was seeking to conceal embarrassing actions of government officials. The government slandered Nunes for outing the FBI mole, whose existence it had previously deceitfully denied, when it leaked facts facilitating his outing.
  • The Obama administration engaged in unprecedented and egregious unmaskings.
  • Five or six DOJ/FBI officials have been fired, demoted or reassigned.
  • The FBI agents didn’t believe that Trump’s first national security adviser, Michael Flynn, lied to them, yet the special counsel pressured him into a guilty plea.
  • Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper lied to Congress but later denied he had lied, claiming he was thinking about something other than what he was being questioned about. That would be lame from any witness, but from a man of Clapper’s caliber, it is stunning. Clapper also said, disingenuously, that the government’s intent was not to spy on the Trump camp but to find out what Russia was doing. Then why did the government try to entrap campaign members, and why did Clapper earlier deny there were spies in the campaign? If the government’s goal was to protect the campaigns from Russian influence, why didn’t it plant spies in the Clinton campaign, as well? Why didn’t it warn the Trump campaign of the possible interference – unless its goal was to damage Trump and protect Clinton, as opposed to safeguarding national security?
  • The Obama administration opened up a Logan Act case against the campaign opponent (Trump) of its would-be successor (Clinton). This is unprecedented and astonishing.
  • The Obama holdouts in the DOJ and FBI are still stonewalling and misrepresenting the facts – especially as to the origin of the Trump investigation.

Strzok, who served on special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigative team, oversaw the FBI’s interviews of former Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, Trump’s national security adviser. And he played a lead role in the investigation of Clinton’s mishandling of classified information. Strzok changed former FBI Director James Comey’s language about Hillary Clinton’s actions from “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless,” forming the basis for not referring criminal charges.

He is also suspected of being responsible for using the unverified Steele dossier to obtain a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant to spy on President Trump’s campaign.

Strzok was removed from special counsel Robert Mueller’s team in August after the stridently pro-Clinton and anti-Trump texts with Page were discovered. He and Page, who worked for FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, were found to have been carrying on an extramarital affair.

Text messages between Strzok and Page released in February indicating President Obama “wants to know everything we are doing” regarding the Trump-Russia probe are growing in significance as more evidence surfaces that the Obama administration spied on the Trump campaign.

WND also has reported on an informant the FBI embedded in the Trump campaign, how the bureau used a secret program to gather Trump campaign information and a poll that revealed 61 percent of the GOP thinks the FBI is framing Trump.

Cornyn: Comey’s FBI was ‘accountable to no one’
 

mikenova shared this story .

ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn said former FBI Director James Comey “helped create a culture at the FBI that they were accountable to no one” and “it’s going to be a long time before the reputation of the FBI regains its reputation as a law enforcement organization that has integrity and is above politics.”

The Senate’s number two Republican made the critical assessment in a wide-ranging interview with Hugh Hewitt on MSNBC Saturday after Hewitt raised the specter of Herbert Hoover’s free-wheeling (and constitutionally suspect) surveillance during the dark days of COINTELPRO.

HEWITT: All right, now it’s a time of great controversy for the FBI, which I’ve always held in the highest esteem. I worked with them when I was at DOJ. And you’ve got Director Comey, his reputation’s in tatters in the eyes of many people. You’ve got Andrew McCabe referred to the DOJ for prosecution. He’s got his admirers as well. You’ve got Page and Strzok and their texts. You’ve got Bruce Ohr over at the DOJ. You will remember, you’re my age, so you will remember just reading about the dark days of COINTELPRO and J. Edgar Hoover. Are we back in those dark days?

CORNYN: Right. Well, unfortunately, I think Director Comey helped create a culture at the FBIthat they were accountable to no one. And unfortunately, that created, I believe, this situation we find ourselves with. Director Wray, I have to tell you, I think is doing an outstanding job. But it’s going to be a long time before the reputation of the FBI regains its reputation as a law enforcement organization that has integrity and is above politics.

COINTELPRO began with the best of intentions – an attempt to root out communist infiltration in America – but spiraled out of control into an unaccountable, police-state surveillance program that operated outside the constitutional oversight of congress.

The FBI’s own website describes COINTELPRO in terms that acknowledge the regrettable (if not wholly illegal) monster it had become.

“What did the president know, and when did he know it?” On June 28, 1973, during a hearing before the Senate Watergate Committee, the ranking member, Tennessee Republican Howard Baker, posed the central question of the investigation.

Forty-five summers after Baker uttered those historic words, the same question now hangs over the alleged collusion between Donald Trump and Russia in the 2016 election. But this time the question is directed at the investigators. It runs like this: What did the FBI know, when did it know it—and…

The Federal Prosecutor’s Office in Puerto Rico rejected that the owner of that agency in the Island, Rosa Emilia Rodriguez, is the subject of a probe by the US Department of Justice.

“There is no investigation, It is absolutely false,” say the statements of that office.

Last week, the exanalyst of intelligence of the federal Office of the Public Prosecutor, Francisco Kings Caparros, affirmed that Rodriguez was a target of an investigation on the part of the central offices in Washington. When asked if it has been cited as part of the investigation, I have replied that “there has been collaboration.”

Last Thursday, Reyes Caparrós won the lawsuit filed against the federal Department of Justice and his former supervisors: Rodríguez and federal prosecutors José Capó, Jacqueline Novas and María Domínguez.

The plaintiff alleged that he was subjected to a pattern of reprisals and a hostile environment, which was after the provision of a bullet proof to the ex-attorney Idalia Mestey, who in turn had filed a complaint against the federal prosecutor’s office before the Commission for the Equality of Opportunities in Employment (EEOC, for its acronym in English).

A jury of four men and four women concluded that the plaintiff must receive compensation of $ 300,000. In addition, federal judge Joseph Laplanta will determine the salary that Reyes Caparrós stopped accruing after his resignation.

The announcement comes on the 500th day of the administration of President Donald Trump.

It is indicated that it is the largest fiscal allocation in the past. Of the 311 prosecutors, 190 will work in criminal cases, 35 in immigration cases and 86 in civil cases. Many of these will assist in the recently created initiative “Prescription Interdiction & Litigation Task Force”, to work with the opium crisis that crosses the United States.

The federal prosecutor, Rosa Emilia Rodriguez thanked the US Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, for the assignment of the six new prosecutors.

I have noted that with the assignment of the new six prosecutors, the federal Department of Justice has recognized the significance of the problem of violent crimes on the island.

“They have also shown great confidence in our office by assigning these valuable resources to where they are desperately needed and greatly appreciated,” Rodriguez said.

Rampante crime in San Juan | Law and order
 

mikenova shared this story from www.elvocero.com – RSS Results in ley-y-orden of type article.

Six of the eight murders investigated by the police between 5:17 pm Friday and 7:10 pm yesterday were staged in San Juan, where 61 of the 285 violent deaths reported in the country had occurred since the year began.

Half of the murders occurred at dawn, among them a couple of ambassadors who slept under the bridge of PR-181 and José de Diego Avenue, in Río Piedras. The victims were lying down at about 4:00 am and from a car they were shot with a burst of more than 20 shots with an assault rifle.

The woman was known as “La Shorty” and the individual as “Cagüitas”. Lieutenant Joshua Velez, director of the Division of Homicide of the Criminal Investigation Corps (CIC) of San Juan, said that the couple was known in the place by nicknames and that they will be investigated in order to identify them.

The agents sought to obtain the recordings of various security cameras at that intersection, in order to identify the vehicle from which it was fired and its occupants.

While at 2:09 in the morning, a person identified as Boulding Colas, 32 years old, and a native of Haiti, but who had his address on 5th Street in Barrio Obrero, was shot to death.

Según la Policía, la víctima compartía con amistades en un negocio en la avenida Borinquen y salió a la acera al recibir una llamada telefónica. Afuera lo aguardaban sicarios que le dispararon más de 20 tiros, matándolo en el acto. El haitiano se encontraba viviendo en Puerto Rico sin permiso de las autoridades de migración.

De otro lado, a las 7:10 de la mañana del domingo y a orillas del ramal de la PR-176 a pasos del residencial Los Laureles, en Cupey, fue asesinado un joven. La víctima presentaba múltiples balazos y en la escena se levantaron casquillos de rifle de asalto y pistola.

En los últimos días se han registrado otras muertes en Cupey, de las cuales dos se produjeron a las 8:19 de la noche del viernes en la cancha del residencial Alturas de Cupey. Los jóvenes Juan Luis Cruz Pérez, de 25 años, y Kevin Cotto, de 22 años, era vecinos del residencial Jardines de Cupey.

Los jóvenes estaban comiendo de una lata de salchichas, ocupada en la escena, cuando llegaron los sicarios y dispararon en cerca de 30 ocasiones con un rifle de asalto y una pistola.

Cruz Pérez fue fichado en el 2017 por un caso de posesión de un vehículo hurtado.

El miércoles en la avenida Cupey Garden en la urbanización la Rosa en Cupey también fue asesinado Ángel Vega Rivera, de 31 años. La Policía no descartó que las cuatro muertes en Cupey guarden relación.

On the other hand, at 2:19 AM yesterday, Miguel Ángel Rivera Molina, 24, was shot in Azucena Street, in front of the E-21 residence of the Jardines de Dorado urbanization, in Dorado.

A family member took him to the Diagnosis and Treatment Center (CDT) and was pronounced dead. Rivera Molina had bullet wounds in various parts of the body, and he was seized with a Glock gun, model 22, caliber .40.

The first of the weekend killings was recorded at 5:17 pm Friday afternoon on Toa Alta Heights Avenue. Sicarios shot Javier “El Burro” Pérez Velázquez, 25, who was passing by in a gray Mitsubishi Lancer.

Indigenous Puerto Rico: DNA evidence upsets established history
 

mikenova shared this story from Indian Country Media Network.

History is written by the conquerors. The Native peoples of North America know this all too well, as they are still trying to bring the truth to light. Now, their long-lost Caribbean cousins are beginning the same process.

It’s an uphill battle.

Most Puerto Ricans know, or think they know, their ethnic and racial history: a blending of Taino(Indian), Spanish and African. Students of the islands’ past have read the same account for over 300 years; that the Native people, and their societies, were killed off by the Spanish invaders by the 1600s. It was always noted though, how many of the original colonists married Taino women or had Taino concubines, producing the original mestizaje (mixture) that, when blended with African, would produce Puerto Ricans.

Those first unions, according to the conventional wisdom, explain why some Puerto Ricans have “a little bit” of Native heritage. Mainly we are Spanish, we are told, with a little African blood and far-away Taino ancestry.

But the order of that sequence will have to change.

Dr. Juan Martinez-Cruzado, a geneticist from the University of Puerto Rico Mayaguez who designed an island-wide DNA survey, released the final numbers and analysis of the project in 2003, and these results tell a different story.

According to the study funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation, 61 percent of all Puerto Ricans have Amerindian mitochondrial DNA, 27 percent have African and 12 percent Caucasian. (Nuclear DNA, or the genetic material present in a gene’s nucleus, is inherited in equal parts from one’s father and mother. Mitochondrial DNA is inherited only from one’s mother and does not change or blend with other materials over time.)

In other words a majority of Puerto Ricans have Native blood.

“Our study showed there was assimilation,” Martinez-Cruzado explained, “but the people were not extinguished. Their political and social structure was but the genes were not.

“The people were assimilated into a new colonial order and became mixed – but that’s what Puerto Ricans are: Indians mixed with Africans and Spaniards,” he asserted.

“There has been an under-estimation of the Amerindian heritage of Puerto Rico, much larger than most historians will admit,” he said.

Martinez-Cruzado cited the historical descriptions of life in Puerto Rico during the 17th and 18th centuries as an example.

“These accounts describe many aspects that are totally derived from Taino modus vivendi, not just the hammocks but the way they fished, their methods of farming, etc.,” he related. “It is clear that the influence of Taino culture was very strong up to about 200 years ago. If we could conduct this same study on the Puerto Ricans from those times, the figure would show that 80 percent of the people had Indian heritage.”

Another historical moment that should receive more attention involves the story of a group of Tainos who, after 200 years of absence from official head-counts, appeared in a military census from the 1790s. In this episode, a colonial military census noted that all of a sudden there were 2,000 Indians living in a northwestern mountain region. “These were Indians who the Spanish had placed on the tiny island of Mona (just off the western coast of Puerto Rico) who survived in isolation and then were brought over,” Martinez-Cruzado said. “They became mixed but there were many Indians who survived but eventually mixed with the Africans and Spaniards. These Mona Tainos must have had a further influence as well.”

Martinez-Cruzado noted how many customs and history were handed down through oral tradition. To this day on the island, there are many people who use medicinal plants and farming methods that come directly from the Tainos.

This is especially true of the areas once known as Indieras, or Indian Zones.

He also pointed out that most of these Native traditions probably do come from the Tainos, the Native people who appeared on the island circa 700 AD. But there were other waves of migrations to Puerto Rico and the entire Caribbean area.

Through the extensive study of the Puerto Rican samples, Martinez-Cruzado and his team have found connections between island residents and Native peoples who arrived before and after the Tainos. He pointed out how a few of the samples can be traced back 9,000 years from ancient migrations, while others correspond to the genetic makeup of Native peoples of the Yucatan, Hispaniola, Margarita Island and Brazil among others. These latter genetic trails point to the presence of other Native peoples who were probably brought to the island as slaves from other Spanish or Portuguese colonies after the 1600s.

While island scholars will have much work to do to catch up with these “new” facts, the genetic detective work for Cruzado is also far from finished. As word spread of the remarkable survey, other scholars from the Dominican Republic, Cuba and Venezuela invited the Puerto Rican scientist to present his findings. They asked him to assist in similar projects in their respective countries.

In 2005, Martinez-Cruzado along with others released Reconstructing the population history of Puerto Rico by means of mtDNA phylogeographic analysis.

While Martinez-Cruzado and his colleagues focused on the history of Pre-Columbian migrations, people in the current Taino restoration movement (such as Nacion Taina, The Jatibonicu Taino Tribal Nation of Boriken, Taino Timucua Tribal Council, the United Confederation of Taino People, and others) hoped that many of their compatriots reflected on the following quote: “The DNA story shows that the official story was wrong,” Martinez-Cruzado said. “This means a much larger Amerindian inheritance for Puerto Ricans.”

This story was originally published October 6, 2003. 

Tracing the origin of the Island´s crisis
 

mikenova shared this story .

Orlando, Florida – A devastating storm hit Puerto Rico, leaving it adrift, and it was not Hurricane Maria. Those winds combined and, over several years, they aligned to generate a whirlwind that put the Island on its knees.

Those gusty winds have been blowing for more than 10 years, and they have taken with them hundreds of thousands of Puerto Ricans who have flown to other places, they have destroyed businesses and halted the economic growth of the island.

However, something remained: the hope of restoring Puerto Rico and drawing a new island on the blanck canvas left by this crisis.

Two economists and a social scientist are the authors of the book “Population, Migration, and Socioeconomic Outcomes among Island and Mainland Puerto Ricans: La Crisis Boricua” which was published at the end of 2017 and comes to light at a time when the island is going through a historic turning point.

Economist Marie T. Mora, native of New Mexico; economist Alberto Dávila, a native of Texas, and the sociologist Havidán Rodríguez, who is from Arecibo, witnessed how what would have been a chapter for an study on the migratory and socioeconomic situation of the island became, little by little, an extensive and detailed book that explains the factors that led Puerto Rico to the current crisis.

The authors’ analysis is supported by substantial data, an element that is often scarce in the debates regarding athe Puerto Rican crisis.

The book went to press a few days before the hurricane devastated the island. Thus, the nightmarish picture painted by the authors is based on a pre-cyclonic scenario. It is a fact that the economic, social and migratory situation became more serious after María, the authors agreed in separate interviews.

The book shows important findings: that one out of every four Puerto Ricans who have emigrated to the United States continues to live under poverty levels; contrary to what has been reported, most of those who have left are not skilled or profesional. However, this sector has been joining the current migration wave as the crisis worsened. Also, that between 2006 and 2014, about 215,000 Puerto Ricans returned to Puerto Rico, but during the same period 445,536 Puerto Ricans left the island, and that the current crisis has not only increased migration, but also dispersed the Puerto Rican diaspora in a score of states, beyond the traditional destinations such as New York, Pennsylvania and New Jersey, among others.

According to the authors the net number of emigrants is higher if the period between 2002 and 2016 is considered: 646,932 people (16.5 percent of the population). This figure, they say, represents the greatest population loss since 1898, when the island became a territory of the United States.

The book also highlights that women emigrate more than men; that the educational issue is one of the factors Puerto Ricans consider when deciding where to emigrate; that there is a high tendency among Puerto Ricans to open businesses in the United States, and that in Puerto Rico the population is aging fast, not only because of the low birth rate, but because young people are leaving the island.

Portrait of the crisis

Like an instant photo, they portray the humanitarian crisis that was forged for years, specifically from 2006, when all the ingredients for that “perfect storm” were together. Many had been predicting that storm for years. They were factors that changed the demographic and socioeconomic scenario of the Puerto Ricans on both sides of the sea.

These factors include the imposition of a Tax on Sales and Use (SUT), an element that, far from helping, impoverished the working class; the end of Section 936 – which provided tax incentives to companies that settled on the island, that caused the closure of companies that fled looking for more competitive markets.

Other factors are the furlough plan for the government, the high cost of electricity, the collapse in the housing market, the loss of bank assets, the general deterioration in infrastructure, problems in the education system and poor healthcare services. This last one due to the gradual loss of doctors and specialists, many of whom have also left the island.

Its effects affect not only the 3.3 million Puerto Ricans on the island, but it has implications for the more than five million residing in the United States who face the responsibility to speak for Puerto Rico and for those who live there.

“As part of this reserach, we made several trips to the island, and, in my case, they were not only professional trips, but emotional as well, I visited the places where I grew up, studied and worked,” said Rodriguez, president of the University of Albany. , in New York (SUNY).

“The problems of Puerto Rico did not develop overnight, and they increased with economic and political changes. What we did was trying to put a bandage on the wound without looking at the reasons that led to that crisis, “said the sociologist. “The book does not really discover anything new. It puts in context, and with data, the reasons that tooks us here,” he reiterated.

Rodriguez said that with the book -which, far from being technical and sophisticated, is simple and easy to understand-, they seek to provoke a multisectoral discussion, to create a kind of permanent forum on the island and abroad to reach concrete strategies that improve the economic and labor situation and stop the current migratory pattern.

The book highlights the potential of Puerto Ricans in the United States as a force that, if it goes out to vote, will influence the decisions of congress members that may affect the island, said Mora. It is a power that residents do not have on the island and that they acquire just by moving, she said.

All that along with proposals to strengthen the work sector, emerge as some of the alternatives that Puerto Rico must look at even when the scope of action of the government is limited to the prerogatives of the Oversight Board, created by Congress under PROMESA federal Law.

“Unfortunately, it does not look like things will improve, and if migration continues, and the island’s aging cycle continues, it will be much worse,” said the labor economist, commenting on a study that indicates that it will not be until the end of 2034 that Puerto Rico will show symptoms of improvement, and if they did occur they would be similar to those that existed in 2006.

Mora said that one of the challenges of Puerto Rico is to implement a model of socioeconomic development at a time when the Board is the one that has the authority over fiscal matters.

“It is not in the hands of the government of Puerto Rico. Meanwhile, the Board does not have to account for what it does. I believe that, in the end, Congress will be responsible for what happens on the island, and that is why Puerto Ricans in the United States have to mobilize and take advantage of the fact that they can vote and that they have representation, especially in Florida, which is a swing state that can decide on the election result. Without the above, the people of the island will not have a voice, ” she said.

Have you been called by representatives of the government of Puerto Rico to discuss the findings of this book? “El Nuevo Día asked.

“No, and that has been a surprise. But we hope that happens and we are available and very happy to be able to make a presentation, “said the professor at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley.

In the discussion about the search for solutions to the crisis of the island, there is a lack of historical analysis of the causes that led to this socioeconomic trap, Rodríguez and Mora agreed.

“The risk of not reviewing what happened, of not analyzing the things that happened, is high. If we do not know where the symptoms came from, how are we going to treat the disease? And that is what happens, that we are treating the symptoms without thinking in the long term, without knowing the impact that decisions will have, without looking at social, economic or political aspects, “said Rodríguez.

“Looking at this from outside the island, people do not seem to be discussing the real problems. And if we do not analyze the elements that led to this crisis, the island could repeat them, “Mora added.

Alberto Dávila, an economist and co-author of the book, is from the school that thinks that the crisis in Puerto Rico is not permanent and that natural market forces will correct or reverse by themselves.

“I think that the same market forces will make Puerto Ricans in the United States begin to return to the island and there will be a natural rebirth. Any intervention in that process could have unexpected and not necessarily good consequences, “said the Associate Dean of the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley.

“Look at the case of Japan and Germany after the Second World War. They were at the bottom of the crisis. Economic models indicate that when an economy is at the bottom, then it tends to recover and rise quickly. Being at the bottom and staying there is not consistent with economic theories. There is light at the end of the tunnel, and there is light because in the case of Puerto Rico, we are already at the end of that tunnel, “he said.

Judges Denounce PR Federal Prosecutors for Using False Evidence Provided by Police Officers
 

mikenova shared this story .

Even though one of the reasons for the US Justice Department to place the Puerto Rico Police Department under receivership was to avoid the fabrication of cases by agents to process citizens illegally, a series of rulings from the US District Court of Puerto Rico reveal that the federal prosecution has occasionally used police officers who lied to process people illicitly.

In the cases identified by NotiCel, the perjury or “inconceivable” testimony issued by the police officers has not prompted the withdrawal of these cases, nor has it resulted in the indictment of these agents for lying or deceiving the prosecutors.

Furthermore, the US Attorney’s Office for the District Puerto Rico has also been the object of severe reproach on behalf of the judges in the Court of Appeals in Boston, due to their improper conduct in infringing upon the constitutional rights of the accused.

In response to NotiCel’s joint investigation with the program “Jay y sus Rayos X”, the head of prosecution, Rosa Emilia Rodríguez Vélez, downplayed the accusations, stating that “[i]t would be inappropriate of us to take part in an interview to comment on the rulings issued by the court and judges of this district and of the First Circuit.”

“When our office manages criminal cases, it is subject to hundreds of court rulings a year, which we must respect and follow. Selecting decisions based simply on the court’s review of certain specific cases does not in any way represent the history of convictions obtained in court by our prosecutors,” said Rodríguez Vélez, who used to be a state prosecutor before becoming a federal prosecutor.

But the questionable conduct incurred by the prosecutors is far from being an isolated case. At the very least, all four of the magistrates serving in the US District Court of Puerto Rico—as well as one judge and a panel of appellate judges—have pointed out veracity issues in the testimonies used by the prosecution, as well as inappropriate conduct on behalf of these prosecutors.

Overall, the judicial statements show that there are instances where constitutional rights have been violated within the most powerful criminal investigation agency in the island. They also highlight that the federal prosecution in the island has spent 20 of the last 24 years in overseeing people who have not undergone the regular process of presidential appointment and approval by the US Senate. Instead, the federal heads of prosecution have stayed in power by the sheer decision power of the district judges, who have not taken any evident action in spite of the long record of excesses against the federal prosecution.

Fabulists

After an individual is arrested by federal agents, they appear in court, and that is the first turn for the defense attorneys to challenge the evidence, which usually consists of accounts offered by agents of the Puerto Rico Police Department and items seized through search warrants.

NotiCel has compiled court rulings that, at least since 2015, raise red flags regarding misleading statements issued by police officers.

In a case that was continued because there was additional evidence, aside from the questionable statements made by the police officers, Magistrate Judge Silvia Carreño Coll said:

“I cannot help but point out that the United States Attorney’s Office is meant to act in the public’s best interests. I do not believe the public’s interest is served, however, by the Government’s promotion of and reliance upon perjurers or fabulists; this is only more true when the perjurer is himself a public official, cloaked in the state’s prestige. It is thus disheartening to see the Government continue to put its imprimatur on Agent Ortiz’s falsehoods, because it suggests that Agent Ortiz, and others like him, will continue to take a perverse lesson from their actions: that official acts of dishonesty carry with them no consequences—not reprimand, not termination, not prosecution—so long as they are committed in the Government’s interest. This is a sorry state of affairs, and one in which the Government should take no pride.”

In 2016, in a case where Judge Jay García Gregory sustained the suppression of evidence, Magistrate Judge Marcos López stated:

“Thus, given these timelines, the testimony of Ortiz—a third party with no alleged motive to be less than truthful—and reliable documentary evidence, officer (Carlos R.) Torres (Anaya) did not explain this inconsistency or explain any deviation in the time reported in the search warrant. The court therefore finds by a preponderance of the evidence that the statements in the affidavit supporting the search warrant regarding investigations on May 29, 2015 were made in intentional or reckless disregard of the truth.”

Also in 2016, in a case of alleged possession of illegal weapons—which is still pending review—Magistrate Judge Camille L. Vélez Rivé found that:

“To believe officer (Santiago) Aguila (Rodríguez) would have us to conclude that he has ‘bionic’ vision, was not affected by the glare at that time of a sunny day, and that he was at a ‘perfect’ angle and in a privileged position. This is simply impossible to believe. If more were needed, suffice it to say that ‘judges are [not] required to divorce themselves of common sense,’ whereas here, an explanation is inherently unbelievable.”

In an exceptional case that was dismantled by the prosecution after finding that the police officers had rigged the security cameras, Magistrate Judge Bruce McGiverin said:

“Because (municipal police officer Luis) Burgos (Nieves) testified to four conflicting, irreconcilable accounts of the manner in which he received the report from the anonymous tipster, I find under the preponderance of the evidence that Burgos knowingly and intentionally stated falsely—or, at the very least, stated with reckless disregard for the truth—that he received a report from an anonymous tipster.”

In upholding this ruling by Magistrate Judge McGiverin, a ruling by Judge Gustavo Gelpí, who is in charge of the Police Reform case, states:

“Inasmuch as federal prosecutions increasingly rely on the actions of local law enforcement personnel, there is thus every more reason to require said officials to act in utmost accordance with federal constitutional standards. This requires the police officer at all times to provide truthful testimony, as well as observe the very mandates of the Fourth Amendment. There is simply no other route.”

“Highly Experienced” Judges Have Lost Patience with the Prosecution

Aside from these statements regarding the use of less-than-truthful testimonies from police officers, the prosecution has also been criticized for actions that have been deemed unethical, such as improper expressions made to the juries. This year, in a case that, against all odds, was resolved in favor of the prosecution, Judge Sandra Lynch of the First Circuit Court of Appeals in Boston issued some clear and strong-worded opinions about this pattern of conduct.

“You have a series of highly experienced judges who have spent decades dealing with Puerto Rico’s cases, and the inappropriate arguments from the federal prosecution and the Puerto Rico Department of Justice is a recurring issue. So seeing you stand there and say, ‘No, we are not admitting it was a mistake’ makes us even more concerned about the inappropriate conduct on behalf of the office you represent,” Lynch told the attorney defending the federal prosecution in the hearing.

“We have cases that for 20, 30 years have made this argument time and time and time again,” she emphasized.

The “Most Powerful” Investigation Agency

The seriousness of these remarks gains even more prominence when taking into account that what is under review is the actions of the most powerful law and order agency in Puerto Rico.

“The strongest and most affluent, powerful, and sophisticated law and order agency in the history of humanity is the government of the United States, it is the US Attorney’s Office. If you compare that with what’s happening in terms of finances at the local government level, with the local police, there’s just no comparison,” remarked Eric Vos, Chief Federal Public Defender. His office is tasked with advocating for federal defendants who, in 90% of cases, prove they are destitute and cannot afford their own private defense.

One of these defendants was Francisco (name changed to protect identity), who was accused of trafficking drugs and firearms based on the testimony provided by a police officer. Through scientific evidence, it was proved that the police officer’s cell phone signal was coming from a different municipality than the one he had allegedly been when compiling evidence to arrest Francisco.

Although Francisco’s attorneys were able to accurately strike down the police officer’s testimony with this evidence, the man decided to plead guilty, because the prosecution, instead of withdrawing the case and releasing him, opted to carry on, all the while making him an irresistible offer in exchange for pleading guilty.

“In federal law, if you go to trial and are found guilty, what the judge says is what goes. Sad to say, but the amount of years I was going down for was not reasonable. I had to compromise and plead guilty to be able to go on probation,” the man said in an interview with NotiCel.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) was one of the groups promoting federal action, and they find it contradictory that US Justice Department is upholding the Police Reform on one side, while also using false testimonies from police officers to process their criminal cases.

“If the federal prosecution decides to ignore this situation, it creates an environment of impunity within the Police Department. It generates mistrust among the population, which will have immense consequences in the due process of law for those that have been accused and are liable to serve their sentences illegally,” responded ACLU attorney Josué González.

“The federal prosecution in Puerto Rico should be very careful when processing criminal cases. They should look closely at the accounts given by these police officers, and ensure in every possible way that they are accurate and truthful, because it could affect the freedom of a lot of people,” he concluded.

This could be rewarded with 300 thousand in damages

Rosa Emilia Rodríguez. Archive – SURICATOS OPERATION

A jury determined this afternoon in the federal court of San Juan that Francisco Reyes Caparrós, federal employee and exanalyst of Intelligence of the Federal Prosecutor’s Office, was the victim of labor harassment and reprisals from 2012 to 2015 by his supervisors, including Rosa Emilia Rodríguez , who is the highest ranking federal official in Puerto Rico.
Reyes Caparrós could be compensated for $ 300,000 in damages.
The plaintiff, Reyes Caparrós, 38, who is now a lawyer, alleged that the pattern of actions against him forced his resignation in 2015 after almost six years of work with the federals.
That same year, in September, he sued the Federal Prosecutor’s Office, and it has taken three years for the case to go to trial.

WATCH: FBI agent accidentally shoots man after doing back flip on dance floor
 

mikenova shared this story .

DENVER, CO (WCMH) – An FBI agent is facing questioning after an accidental shooting at a Colorado distillery while he was off duty.

According to KMGH, the agent was dancing around a group of people at Mile High Spirits in Denver. As he attempted a back flip, a gun fell off of his holster and onto the floor. The agent quickly scrambled to pick up the gun, but as he did so, the gun fired, hitting one person in the leg.

The victim was taken to a nearby hospital and is expected to recover from his injury.

The FBI agent was taken to police headquarters for questioning but has not been placed under arrest. It is unclear if the gun involved was the agent’s own gun or if it was his FBI-issued gun. The Denver District Attorney will determine whether or not criminal charges will be filed.

Marijuana News  – Will Trinidad And Tobago Also Jump On The Marijuana Train?

News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. May 18, 2018: As more and more countries across the Caribbean consider decriminalizing marijuana for medicinal purposes, a legislator in Trinidad and Tobago wants the twin-island Republic to follow suit.Independent Senator, Dr. Dhanayshar Mahabir, is urging the island’s government to allow the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes, saying the initiative could also help in the diversification of the economy of the oil-rich republic.Mahabir, a University of the West Indies lecturer, made the suggestion as he was debating the Finance and Appropriation Bill in the Senate on Tuesday.Mahabir said that Canadians have been tapping into this opportunity and “it was about time we step up to the plate because our oil deals will not last forever.”Last month, former health minister, Dr Fuad Khan, also called for Trinidad and Tobago to examine the possibility of decriminalizing marijuana for medicinal purposes.Save up to 75% on FlightsThe post Marijuana News  – Will Trinidad And Tobago Also Jump On The Marijuana Train? appeared first on Caribbean and Latin America Daily News.
Marijuana News – While Guyana Punishes, Africa Legalizes

News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. May 25, 2018: While many nationals from the CARICOM nation of Guyana took to social media this week to express outrage over the three-year jail sentence of a poultry farmer there, who was found with 8.6 grams of marijuana, news broke that another African country has moved to legalize marijuana for medical and scientific purposes.Zimbabwe has become the second African country to legalize the herb with the country’s health minister, Dr David Parirenyatwa, stating in a government notice that individuals and businesses would now be able to apply for licenses to cultivate cannabis for medicinal or scientific use.The five-year licenses will clear also clear growers to possess, transport and sell fresh cannabis, cannabis oil, and dried product.Recreational use will remain illegal.Applicants for the licenses must submit detailed plans of their proposed production site and yield, according to the government notice published in the Harare Herald on Saturday.  Individuals applying for licenses must be Zimbabwe citizens or residents or have a waiver issued by the minister.The tiny state of Lesotho issued Africa’s first license for medical marijuana production last year.Meanwhile, in Guyana, Carl Mangal could spend the next three years of his life in jail if his appeal fails while the laws there continue to penalize many for minor possession of the herb.The Alliance for Change (AFC) Party, in a statement, has once again called  for an upgrade of the laws of Guyana to ensure that custodial sentences for small quantities of marijuana are remove
