    The city is ordering schools staffers not to allow immigration agents to enter school buildings, Mayor de Blasio announced Tuesday. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents will be turned away from city schools unless they have a warrant signed by a judge, which city lawyers deem valid, according to a new policy being issued to principals. There have not been any incidents where ICE agents have tried to get in to city schools, but de Blasio said the city wanted to have clear rules in place in case it happens. “We want to be very clear to parents that we’re not...

    Sebastian Gorka, President Trump’s top counter-terrorism adviser, is a formal member of a Hungarian far-right group that is listed by the U.S. State Department as having been “under the direction of the Nazi Government of Germany” during World War II, leaders of the organization have told the Forward. The elite order, known as the Vitézi Rend, was established as a loyalist group by Admiral Miklos Horthy, who ruled Hungary as a staunch nationalist from 1920 to October 1944. A self-confessed anti-Semite, Horthy imposed restrictive Jewish laws prior to World War II and collaborated with Hitler during the conflict. His cooperation...

    Serious query here. I am upset with the judges who have said Trump cannot enforce his EOs. But I just had a "flashback" that seems to raise a question. Maybe it has been expressed but I don't recall seeing it in this manner. Here it is: Executive Orders are directions by the Chief Executive to employees and deputies of the executive BRANCH. That is, the chief executive CANNOT make rules for those working directly for the other two branches. Question: Are these judges unconstitutionally (if my understanding of EOs is accurate) meddling in another branch of gov't?

    The exhibition's curator sees little artistic merit in the undated painting. "It's a piece of crap," says curator Vittorio Sgarbi. "It's a painting by a hopeless man, it could have been done by Kafka, it says a lot about his psyche: here you do not see greatness, you see misery." Hitler famously applied to the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts in the 1900s but was rejected twice. Despite being considered a mediocre artist, his work has fetched considerable sums at auction in recent years.

But in the course of that investigation, they uncovered something that is even more disturbing: a hot tub at a house where Bannon claimed to live looked like it was filled with acid. The Post started looking into Bannon because while he claimed residency in Florida, he was spending most of his time in Washington, D.C., but his address was listed as his business manager's office in California. In fact, prosecutors in Miami have opened...

The practice is known in intelligence world shorthand as "LOVEINT" and was disclosed by the NSA Office of the Inspector General in response to a request by the Senate Judiciary Committee's top Republican Charles Grassley for a report on abuses of the NSA's surveillance authority.

The survey asks non-partisonly and without mention to Palestine and arabs questions about preference on Congressional issues, feelings about the administration, national deficit, terrorism, and so on - 7 questions in all. Went to the "Congressional Monitor" wikipedia description, and surprised to find it is Beirut-based and part of the "Institute for Palestine Studies".

Most journalists are just dismissing the allegations as a lie. There are many reasons to question Mr. Trump’s charges, but still, there are many reasons to take them seriously.

With the new changes, which were long in the works, those agencies can apply for access to various feeds of raw, undoctored NSA intelligence. Analysts will then be able to sift through the contents of those feeds as they see fit, before implementing required privacy protections. Previously, the NSA applied those privacy protections itself, before forwarding select pieces of information to agencies that...

However, Trustwave's investigation has shown this scheme to be fundamentally flawed in that it is not necessary for a remote user to possess knowledge of any secret or password, besides the challenge itself and knowledge of the protocol/computation used.The issue permits a...
