  • US judge blocks latest Trump travel restrictions to the US from eight countries (This again?)

    10/17/2017 1:17:29 PM PDT · by servo1969 · 40 replies
    A federal judge in Hawaii blocked President Donald Trump's latest bid to impose restrictions on citizens from eight countries entering the United States, which had been set to take effect this week. The open-ended ban, announced last month, targeted people from Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Chad and North Korea, as well as certain government officials from Venezuela. It was the latest version of a policy that had previously targeted six Muslim-majority countries but had been restricted by the Supreme Court. U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson on Tuesday granted Hawaii's request to temporarily block the federal government from enforcing the...

    Hawaii state representative Chris Lee has introduced a bill to guarantee economic security for the state's residents. Amidst fears of technology leading to job automation, Lee's Universal Basic Income (UBI) measure would ensure that that all residents of Hawaii are able to receive a steady income, regardless of their employment status. Prominent billionaire businessmen including Richard Branson, Mark Zuckerberg, and Elon Musk have expressed their support for the bill. "In the modern world, everybody should have the opportunity to work and to thrive. Most countries can afford to make sure that everybody has their basic needs covered," Virgin Group founder...

    A 240-foot salvage ship is on its way to aid in the recovery of a crashed Army UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter and its missing crew west of Kaena Point, a spokesman for the 25th Infantry Division said. The Military Sealift Command-chartered MV HOS Dominator, a submarine support ship, is expected to arrive in the coming days, Lt. Col. Curt Kellogg said Thursday. The ship’s involvement represents a transition from seafloor sonar mapping and camera observation by the Navy using an unmanned underwater vehicle and remotely operated vehicle to actual salvage and recovery. All five crew members from the Hawaii-based Black...

    The total number of crimes reported across Hawaii in 2016 was the lowest since statewide data collection began more than 40 years ago, according to an annual report released Thursday. Some 45,805 crimes were reported statewide last year, a rate of 3,206 offenses per 100,000 residents. That's more than 6 percent below the 2015 report, and 27 percent lower than the crime rate reported in 2007. “The record low crime statistics in 2016 highlight the outstanding work of law enforcement throughout the State and in all four counties," said Doug Chin, Hawaii's attorney general, in a statement that accompanied the...

    The United States conducted a successful missile defense test that intercepted a medium-range ballistic missile off the coast of Hawaii early Wednesday morning, according to a statement from the US Missile Defense Agency. The Standard Missile-6, built by major US defense contracter Raytheon, intercepted the missile target at sea in its final seconds of flight after being fired from the USS John Paul Jones. The test comes amid heightened tensions between North Korea and the US. Earlier this week, an intermediate-range missile, identified by the North Koreans as a Hwasong-12, was fired over Japan. A US official, however, told CNN...

    Japan has wheeled missile defence systems into the heart of Tokyo after North Korea threatened to send a volley of rockets over the country towards Guam. Pictures show how a PAC-3 Patriot missile unit has been moved in to a compound at the Defence Ministry in the capital after officials said they could shoot down North Korean rockets if they pass overhead. Sales of bomb shelters in Japan are said to have increased as tensions continue to rise in the region while officials in Seoul have vowed to bolster their defences. But South Korean citizens - long accustomed to its...

    The state's emergency management agency said the threat to the islands from the rogue nation is "currently assessed to be low." But officials added ongoing North Korean missile tests — and growing public concern — have prompted officials to work on preparedness and disaster management plans. Vern Miyagi, administrator of the emergency management agency... said, the public should see the preparation and education much like the work being done to prepare the public for hurricane and tsunami... Earlier this month, North Korea tested an ICBM missile, drawing condemnation from the US and other countries. Experts say an ICBM like the...

    The U.S. Supreme Court dealt a blow to President Donald Trump on his embattled travel ban today, rejecting his bid to bar entry by some people with family members already in the country. The 6-3 order by the justices — who last month let the president start restricting entry by people from six mostly Muslim countries — means the government must accept people with grandparents, cousins and other relatives in the (snip) Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch dissented from today’s action, saying they would have blocked Watson’s entire ruling.

    Lawyers for the state of Hawaii and other challengers to President Trump's executive order argued to the Supreme Court on Tuesday that the current phase of that dispute should play out first in a lower appeals court. The variety of Supreme Court actions that the Trump Administration has sought are either outside of normal procedures or are unnecessary, the new filing contended. Administration lawyers moved late last week to get the Supreme Court itself to clarify what it meant on June 26 in narrowing the government's power to impose a sweeping exclusion of foreign nationals from Muslim-majority nations and of...

    HONOLULU -- A former bunk mate of a U.S. soldier accused of pledging loyalty to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) group says they debated conspiracy theories. Dustin Lyles says Army Sgt. 1st Class Ikaika Kang believed the moon landing was faked, questioned the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and thought the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks were an inside job coordinated by the U.S. government. Kang was arrested Saturday and appeared in federal court in Honolulu Thursday for a detention hearing. At the hearing, the Department of Justice introduced a photo of Kang kissing an ISIS flag....
  • DOJ ask Supreme Court for 'immediate intervention' on immigration ban, documents show

    The Trump administration has told the Supreme Court that a lower court ruling earlier this week altering an executive order on immigration would bring thousands more refugees into the county and requires the justices’ “immediate intervention,” according to filing documents obtained early Saturday by Fox News. In a victory for the administration, the Supreme Court late last month lifted key components of an injunction against President Trump's temporary travel ban on refugees and visitors from six mostly-Muslim countries.

    The Latest on a judge’s decision on President Donald Trump’s travel ban (all times local): 3:50 p.m. The Trump administration is asking the Supreme Court for greater freedom in limiting visitors to the United States from six mostly Muslim countries and refugees from around the world. The Justice Department filed an emergency appeal with the high court late Friday that seeks to undo a Hawaii judge’s ruling from a day earlier. That ruling diluted President Donald Trump’s restrictions on refugees and visitors from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

    The Trump administration said Friday it will ask the Supreme Court to block a federal judge’s ruling limiting the scope of President Trump’s travel ban. “The Supreme Court has had to correct this lower court once, and we will now reluctantly return directly to the Supreme Court to again vindicate the rule of law and the executive branch's duty to protect the nation,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement. The decision came one day after a Hawaii-based judge dealt Trump a defeat by ordering the government to expand the number of people who are exempt from the...

    The Obama policy legacy continues to be systematically repealed by President Trump and congress, but sadly, the Obama cultural legacy will live on for many years thanks to the hundreds of utterly corrupt individuals he appointed to the federal judiciary. Last night we saw the latest example of what will become a long-term lawless, corrupting influence in our daily lives, as Hawaii District Court Judge Derrick Watson issued his latest extra-constitutional ruling related to the President’s travel ban. No doubt many of you have been laboring under the illusion that the U.S. Supreme Court – which has already ruled on...

    A federal judge in Honolulu has expanded the Trump administration’s list of family relationships needed by people seeking new visas from six mostly Muslim countries to avoid a travel ban. U.S. District Court Judge Derrick Watson ruled today that the travel ban exemptions should include grandparents, grandchildren, uncles, aunts and other relatives. President Donald Trump’s travel ban, which was partially allowed by the U.S. Supreme Court, did not include grandparents, grandchildren and other relations considered “bona-fide” family relationships to be granted an exemption to the ban. The administration said a bona fide relationship would be a parent, spouse, fiance, son,...
