  • Federal government takes “preliminary step” to evaluate Strait of Belle Isle subsea tunnel (Canada)

    A subsea tunnel across the Strait of Belle Isle is back in conversation once again after a report was tabled this month in Ottawa. The federal government’s standing committee on transport, infrastructure, and communities is now calling on the federal government to work with the provinces of Newfoundland and Labrador and Quebec, as well, as the private sector, to build a fixed link across the Strait of Belle Isle and complete Route 138 along the Quebec Lower North Shore. The tunnel would link Point Amour in Labrador to Yankee Point on the Great Northern Peninsula in Newfoundland. The project would...

    Woodpile Report ^ | 21MAY19 | Ol' Remus
    I'm keeping my "few words" to a few words this week. Affirmative Action, meaning hiring quotas at the expense of qualified applicants, has been the law since March 1961. More than 58 years. Now it's been elevated to a harshly enforced cult called "diversity". If welfare, equal opportunity and Affirmative Action wasn't enough, neither will be "diversity". Before NAFTA the U.S. held a trade surplus with Mexico of about $10 million, which was break-even or near enough. Since NAFTA we've constantly run deficits of tens of billions of dollars. What a deal. It's no surprise the news media doesn't mention...
  • Justice Department releases redacted Mueller report - again

    The Justice Department released a second copy of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Monday evening, following a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by BuzzFeed and the Electronic Privacy and Information Center. The lightly-redacted version of Mueller's report appears to be identical to the 448-page document that was released in April, except it sheds more light on the redactions by explaining why the blacked-out information is exempted from release under FOIA. **SNIP** Along with the report itself, the Justice Department included a letter from senior counsel Vanessa Brinkman addressed to BuzzFeed reporter Jason Leopold, who had filed a FOIA...

    (CNN)The Mueller report -- the result of a 22-month investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election -- didn't end the debate over whether President Donald Trump obstructed justice or acted inappropriately while in office. But there's one thing it proved beyond any debate: The President lies with remarkable ease and cajoles those around him to do the same.

    Given these assumptions: 1. Mueller and his team are smart enough to know there was never any collusion of Trump with Russia... 2. Mueller's fundamental purpose was to run a lengthy (but baseless) investigation which would provide fodder for news and commentary reporting on a continuous basis. A running source of (phony) material for Dems and Trump haters. 3. While there was never any expectation to find collusion with Russia, the powers inherent to the investigation team might lead to criminal charges in other unrelated matters, which would be politically useful for Dems, Progs, etc. So WHY did Mueller end...

    House Democrats exploded in anger Wednesday over Attorney General William Barr’s plans to roll out special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, accusing the Justice Department of trying to spin the report’s contents and protect President Donald Trump. Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will hold a press conference at 9:30 a.m. Thursday morning to review the report, which may be heavily redacted. Reports that DOJ officials have already discussed Mueller’s findings with the White House only further inflamed tensions. “I’m deeply troubled by reports that the WH is being briefed on the Mueller report AHEAD of its release,” tweeted House...

    Special counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russian interference in the 2016 election is set to be sent to Congress on Thursday, but the fight to get the full, unredacted, or at least minimally redacted, report is already fiercely underway. Attorney General William Barr and his team have spent the last few weeks carving away at the nearly 400-page report and proclaiming varying degrees of exoneration for President Donald Trump. At the same time, Democrats and others have been making moves to ensure that Trump loyalists don't hide the potentially damaging parts for the president forever. But if all else fails,...

    WASHINGTON — The still-secret report on Russian interference in the 2016 election submitted by the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, last week was more than 300 pages long, according to the Justice Department, a length that raises new questions about Attorney General William P. Barr’s four-page summary. Mr. Barr wrote to Congress on Sunday offering what he called the “principal conclusions” of the report — including that Mr. Mueller had not found that the Trump campaign had taken part in a conspiracy to undermine the election. But he had notably declined to publicly disclose its length.

    While speaking to reporters on Tuesday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) called for the release of the Mueller report and stated that Attorney General William Barr “is appointed for a particular job, to make sure the president is above the law.” Pelosi said, “Right now, the message should be clearly, let us see this report. I have great respect for Special Counsel Mueller, but let us see the report. We don’t need an interpretation by the attorney general, who is appointed for a particular job, to make sure the president is above the law. We need to see the report.”

Snip Schiff told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer Friday evening that his Committee is willing to subpoena Robert Mueller and others to obtain a clearer picture of the contents of Mueller’s final report.

    Sources familiar with the probe believe there are no more indictments expected. There's no shortage of speculation on the special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, much of it totally uninformed. But we don't need to speculate on the scope – the man who appointed Mueller has already given us a potential road map on what to expect from the special counsel. The bottom line: Do not expect a harsh condemnation of President Donald Trump or any of his associates if they have not been charged with crimes. The road map comes in the form a little-noticed 12-page letter written by Deputy...

    It’s been about two years, but it feels more like 20. Special counsel Robert Mueller is finally wrapping up his investigation into Russia and Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and could deliver his report to the Department of Justice any day now. Americans, your nightmare is over. At least for some of you. There are those on the left, however, whose nightmare is probably just about to begin. They’ve elevated Trump’s supposed collusion with Russia into an article of their liberal faith, and they’ve spent two years prophesying his downfall. But there’s reason to believe that their prophecies are about to...

    RUSH: It has just been announced that the entire two years have been a hoax. The Senate Intelligence Committee has admitted that, after two years, not a shred of evidence of any collusion between Trump and Russia has been found. We had Trump’s lawyer at the beginning of the Mueller investigation, John Dowd, saying, “I’ve seen everything Mueller’s got. I know every question Mueller asked. I know every answer Mueller got. I don’t even think Mueller’s gonna issue a report! Mueller doesn’t have anything!” Folks, Mueller… That doesn’t surprise me a bit. The whole point of the Mueller investigation has...

Since China is of some interest to the US these days, I thought a description of sorts, actually more in the nature of a disordered travelog,  might be of interest.

    Though a final draft of the environmental assessment report detailing the proposed Interstate 10 widening through Baton Rouge was originally scheduled to be presented at a public hearing this month, state officials now say it will likely be February before the report is complete. There’s no particular reason why consultants preparing the report are running behind, according to Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development Secretary Shawn Wilson. “It’s just that engineering is a much slower process than the public or I, for that matter, would like it to be,” he says. “They’re gathering some additional data as they try to...

Dershowitz added that he believes the report, although it will have a...
