California Dems Withdraw Insane Socialized Medicine Bill, Now Face Death Threats- What goes around comes around. Even Democrat lawmakers have to deal with increasingly aggressive leftist bullying in the wake of an unfundable plan to impose socialized medicine on California getting spiked:
California Democratic lawmakers are facing a brutal backlash from union activists and others on the left after shelving a universal health care bill – a debate that has grown so intense that lawmakers say they’ve faced death threats and other violent rhetoric.

From Daily Mail: The Canadian government will apologize to former Guantanamo Bay inmate Omar Khadr and pay him around $8m (Canadian $10m) to compensate him for the abuse he suffered in detention, two sources familiar with the matter said on Tuesday. A Canadian citizen, Khadr, now 30, was captured in Afghanistan in 2002 at age 15 after a firefight with U.S. soldiers. He pleaded guilty to killing a US army medic and became the youngest inmate held at the US military prison in Cuba. Khadr later recanted and his lawyers said he had been grossly mistreated.

If you are White, Asian, Latino, or Not-Black-Enough (like Ben Carson), this professor says you are guilty. What consequences will society suffer from colleges indoctrinating students into race hatred? This is America, but it may soon look like South Africa, where “whites” are hunted down for perceived offenses.

A new government audit finds more than a third of enrollees of the "Obamaphone" program may not be qualified -- among other fraudulent findings -- prompting a Senate Democrat to roundly criticize the program's "complete lack of oversight." A report released Thursday by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) claims the program, which gives cell phones to poor people, stashed $9 billion in private bank accounts....

All Volvo car models launched after 2019 will be electric or hybrids, the Chinese-owned company said on Wednesday, making it the first major traditional automaker to set a date for phasing out vehicles powered solely by the internal combustion engine. The Sweden-based company will continue to produce pure combustion-engine Volvos from models launched before that date, but its move signals the eventual end of nearly a century of Volvos powered solely that way. While electric and hybrid vehicles are still only a small fraction of new cars sales, they are gaining ground at the premium end of the market, where Volvo operates and where Elon Musk's Tesla Motors has been a pure-play battery carmaker from day one. As technology improves and prices fall, many in the industry expect mass-market adoption to follow.

I usually hate these "click 21 times" articles but was just curious enough today- Each year, Forbes turns to compensation data site Payscale for mid-career data on 45 popular master’s degrees. The ranking considers pay growth from early to mid-career of those holding each degree, as well as job satisfaction, stress, meaning derived from the work, and the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ (BLS) projected employment growth of jobs associated with each degree to determine which fields are promising graduates the best collection of factors–both tangible and intangible.

ANOTHER THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: 
In a new survey, 74% said that owning a gun is essential to their freedom. For the other 26%, someone else owning a gun is.

Danielle Bregoli's bad behavior has gotten the social media star into some hot water. Bregoli, dubbed the "Cash Me Outside" girl, pleaded guilty to multiple charges Wednesday in a Florida courtroom. According to WPTV, the charges predate her September 2016 appearance on the "Dr. Phil Show" and include possession of marijuana, grand theft and filing a false police report.

Yahoo/Reuters News headline: “Americans celebrate July 4 with leisure and gluttony” Yes, it’s true. Unlike non-American countries which celebrate their independence with forced labor and starvation. Much as they celebrate every day.

ANOTHER PRIME EXAMPLE WHERE MSN GETS IT WRONG, MISSES THE POINT. SUMMER JOBS ARE AN OPPORTUNITY FOR GROWTH AND LEARNING SKILLS THAT WILL SERVE IN LIFE MUCH BETTER THAN CALCULUS AND MORE COLLEGE DEBT!

LEARNING THE DISCIPLINES OF SHOWING UP ON TIME, DOING SOMETHING YOU DON'T ENJOY, COOPERATING WITH PEOPLE LESS THAN PLEASANT- PRICELESS!!!

Dave McClure, the co-founder of investment firm 500 Startups, has admitted that he made “inappropriate” advances towards women in “work-related scenarios.” In a blog post titled “I’m a Creep. I’m Sorry,” McClure confessed to putting multiple women in “compromising and inappropriate situations.”

Austria took in more than 1 percent of its population in asylum seekers at the time, which helped increase support for the far-right Freedom Party. Keen to avoid another influx, it said it would introduce controls at the busy Brenner Pass border crossing with Italy if one materialized there. That has not yet happened but Italy recently asked other EU countries to help it cope with a surge in migrants reaching its southern Mediterranean shores from Africa, raising concern in Austria that many will soon show up at its border with Italy. That is a political hot potato in Austria, where a parliamentary election is scheduled in October with immigration shaping up as a central issue.



Austrian Defence Minister Hans Peter Doskozil told the mass-circulation Kronen Zeitung in an interview published on Tuesday that he expected restrictions would be introduced along the Alpine boundary with Italy "very soon".

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Tuesday that his country and Ireland should seize the opportunity to be open and progressive as their big neighbors, the U.S. and Britain, turn inward. Trudeau said there are "tremendous opportunities for countries like Canada and Ireland at a time where perhaps our significant allies and trading partners ... are turning inward or at least turning in a different direction." He said the two nations should "make the pitch that Canada and Ireland are places that are exciting and open to the world in a positive, progressive way."
Trudeau spoke after meeting Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar in Dublin. Both leaders face tricky times with their neighbors - the U.S. under President Donald Trump and the U.K. as it leaves the European Union.

No black people are celebrating the greatest nation in history today, because that would mean they are not woke:
A black digital magazine featured a video showing black people explaining why they refused to celebrate the Fourth of July.

Danish shipping giant A.P. Moller-Maersk (MAERSKb.CO) said it had restored its major applications, as it brings its IT systems back online after being hit by a major cyber attack last week.
"Today we can finally reopen our key applications," Maersk said in a statement on Monday. The company, which handles one in seven containers shipped globally, said it expects to have all its 1500 applications fully functional within a week.

The two power stations in Hubei province have stopped 26 generators, due to flood pressure in the middle and lower reaches of the Yangtze River, Asia's longest river, the state-run Xinhua News Agency said, citing the Three Gorges Corp [CYTGP.UL], the world's largest hydroelectric power producer.
Hydropower is China's second largest electricity source after coal. The shutdowns have cut capacity by 13.52 gigawatts (GW) to just 7.5 GW. The Three Gorges plant has reduced capacity to 6 GW from 18.12 GW, while Gezhouba, some 38 kms (23 miles) away, has halved capacity to 1.5 GW from 2.9 GW.
Phone calls to Three Gorges were unanswered.
Hydropower schemes can shut during times of high rainfall to prevent flooding downstream or to protect their turbines.
Any prolonged closure of the generators will renew concerns about higher demand for coal to fuel the nation's thousands of thermal power plants as a weeks-long heatwave scorches the north.
Traders said that it would take at least a dozen large fossil fuel or nuclear power stations to make up for the hydro restrictions.
