    Resistance is profitable The New York Times is selling tickets for a night with resistance leader Sally Yates. The Times is charging $30—and half-price tickets for subscribers—for a "rare conversation" with the former Obama Justice Department holdover who refused to enforce President Trump's executive order restricting travel from terrorist hot bed countries. "Join us for a rare conversation with Sally Yates, the former acting attorney general who was dismissed by President Trump last year after refusing to defend his first travel ban," the Times writes. Topics include prison reform, civil rights, and "the fine points of constitutional law." Yates herself...

    Two high ranking FBI officials involved in Robert Mueller's Russian probe exchanged text messages calling Donald Trump 'an idiot'. FBI agent Peter Strzok and senior FBI lawyer Lisa Page, who were having an affair, shared more than 10,000 texts in 2016 discussing the future president. During their exchanges, they described Trump as an 'idiot' and a 'loathsome human' and shared their hopes that Hillary Clinton should win the election, the Washington Post reported. Special Counsel Mueller removed Strzok from the investigation into collusion between Trump's administration and Russia during the 2016 election, after the messages revealing anti-Trump sentiment first emerged...

    The Pentagon confirmed Tuesday that it will pay for a soldier’s gender reassignment surgery for the first time, according to multiple reports. Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White said in a statement shared by a BuzzFeed News reporter that an active-duty military member received sex-reassignment surgery Tuesday in a private hospital. “Because this service member had already begun a sex-reassignment course of treatment, and the treating doctor deemed this surgery medically necessary, a waiver was approved by the director of the Defense Health Agency,” White said. “The Supplemental Health Care Program will cover this surgery in accordance with the Department’s interim guidance...

McMaster, who has been criticized for firing opponents of the Iran nuclear deal and being out-of-step with President Trump’s security policy in several areas. Gaffney said he is “very much of the view that he’s the wrong man in that job at this time.”He argued that a clear case for “rank insubordination to the president” could be made against McMaster, citing his rejection of the term “radical Islamic terrorism,” which the president has repeatedly indicated he thinks is appropriate,” along with “policy differences on everything from...

    President Donald Trump surely realizes that most workers employed by the federal government diabolically oppose his views of America. According to a new report, at least 180 of those employees "have signed up for a workshop featuring expert advice on workers’ rights and expressing civil disobedience."  Also, dozens more federal workers have attended a support groups for discussing opposition to the Trump administration. As President Trump settles into the White House, he will have to start examining ways to expedite his transition from the top down.  His agenda is nothing more than words in the long term if the people working for him fail to...

Jeff Sessions, Trump's nominee for attorney general, is confirmed.

    Muslim police in France refuse to protect synagogues as growing support for Jihad is affecting law enforcement, according to a Gatestone Institute report. The report claims that a leaked confidential memo from the Department of Public Security, published by Le Parisien, detailed 17 cases of police officers radicalized between 2012 and 2015, noting that the police officers listen to and broadcast Muslim chants while on patrol. According to the anti-terrorist unit of the French Interior Ministry, as of January 2016, France is already host to 8,250 radical Islamists (a 50% increase in one year). Some have gone to Syria to...

    TUCSON — After a short, spirited exchange between a Jesuit priest and a federal judge, the score was Judge 1, Priest 0. On Wednesday, the Rev. Stephen Kelly wanted federal magistrate Judge Héctor Estrada to allow him to represent himself in an upcoming trial where the Jesuit is accused of trespassing on Fort Huachuca in November, along with Franciscan the Rev. Louis Vitale. The pair also were charged with disobeying an order of an Arizona law enforcement officer. Estrada was willing to listen to Kelly outline his qualifications to represent himself, but when the judge asked the priest to stand...

    Army prosecutors have sent subpoenas to journalists in Oakland and Honolulu demanding testimony about quotes they attributed to an officer who faces a court-martial after denouncing the war in Iraq and refusing to deploy with his unit. The Army's subpoenas, which the journalists said they received last week, put them in the uncomfortable position of being ordered to help the Army build its case against 1st Lt. Ehren Watada, who faces up to six years in prison if convicted. "It's not a reporter's job to participate in the prosecution of her own sources,'' said Sarah Olson, an Oakland freelance journalist...

    A State Department reorganization of analysts involved in preventing the spread of deadly weapons has spawned internal turmoil, with more than half a dozen career employees alleging in interviews that political appointees sought to punish long-term employees whose views they considered suspect. Senior State Department officials deny that and say an investigation has found that the proper personnel practices were followed. But three officials involved in the reorganization, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to comment publicly, acknowledge that a merger of two bureaus reduced the influence of employees who were viewed by some...

    SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Court-martial proceedings opened Wednesday for a Navy sailor turned anti-war activist who refused to board his ship when it deployed to the Persian Gulf in December. Petty Officer 3rd Class Pablo Paredes pleaded not guilty at the outset of his trial on charges of unauthorized absence and missing his ship's movement. Paredes, a 23-year-old from the New York City borough of the Bronx, waved his right to have his trial heard by a military jury. The case instead will be decided by the judge, Lt. Cmdr. Bob Klant. In his opening statement, prosecutor Lt. Brandon Hale...

    Democrats called Saturday for an investigation of charges that the Bush administration threatened to fire a top Medicare official if he gave data to Congress showing the high costs of hotly contested Medicare legislation. The official, Richard S. Foster, chief actuary of the Medicare program, said he had been formally told not to provide the information to Congress. Moreover, he said, he was told that "the consequences of insubordination would be very severe." Senior officials at the Medicare agency made it clear that "they would try and fire me" for responding directly to inquiries from Congress, Mr. Foster said in...

    THE other day I watched a British television journalist interview a British military commander, fresh from combat. Generally, the whole, incessant, rolling TV War Thing has made my life resemble Groundhog Day, but I can recall this particular discourse quite clearly. The journalist did all the usual "What’s going on?" stuff and the officer replied with all the equally usual tactical stuff that, as usual, made the journalist’s eyes glaze over in a look of such total uncomprehending blankness, he resembled a dead cod being asked to recite the Periodic Table. So far, so usual. But then, when the soldier...

Mr Hugheston-Roberts, chairman of Forces Law, said they could be thrown out of the Army or have to face a court martial. It is understood they are a private and an air technician. Mr Hugheston-Roberts said his organisation, which links service personnel with specialist...
