    The movement first made its presence felt in California more than two decades ago, then built its forces amid the protests against the Iraq war.Out of the sea of largely peaceful antiwar demonstrators marching in San Francisco’s Financial District in 2003, a more militant subgroup emerged. Its members wore black masks, black jackets, black hoods and helmets. They smashed windows and looted military recruitment offices.Since then, the so-called black bloc protesters have become a force in the Bay Area and beyond. They have been blamed for violence during protests in Oakland over corporate power and police abuse, notably the case of Oscar...

    See linked video Herridge said that identifying the American caller for surveillance purposes, in this case Flynn, "needs sign-off at the highest levels." House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) said authorization would have been needed to unmask Flynn's name. "If in fact the press reports are right, someone made the decision to deliberately listen to General Flynn's phone calls," said Nunes, calling it "unprecedented, unwarranted and flat-out wrong."
  • CBS's Reynolds: Obama's Campaign Plane 'Smells Terrible Most of the Time'

    CBS News' Dean Reynolds may get in hot water with his mainstream media associates for doing the unforgivable: He's committed the truth. On CBS's "From the Road" blog yesterday, Reynolds wrote, "Reporter's Notebook: Seeing How The Other Half Lives." The reporter recently switched from covering Barack Obama's campaign to that of John McCain. His rumination includes these interesting tidbits: The (Obama) national headquarters in Chicago airily dismisses complaints from journalists wondering why a schedule cannot be printed up or at least e-mailed in time to make coverage plans. The McCain campaign plane is better than Obama's, which is cramped, uncomfortable...

    Years of budget cuts have taken a toll on the Navy's fleet of strike fighters. Nearly two-thirds of the Navy's strike fighters are sitting unused because there is not enough money to repair them, according to DefenseNews.com.

Congress was unable to produce a budget before the October 1 start of the 2017 fiscal year. Political leaders say Congress' inability to pass the military budget on time is hurting the fleet.
