  • Ninth Circuit Affirms Preliminary Injunction Against CA Magazine Ban(Prop 63)

    07/18/2018 9:06:07 PM PDT · by Vendome · 5 replies ^ | July 18, 2018 | Tom Knighton
    in a shocking turn of events, the Ninth Circuit actually affirmed the preliminary injunction. Earlier today, a Ninth Circuit Panel affirmed the district court’s grant of the preliminary injunction. The panel found that the lower court did not abuse its discretion by concluding that “magazines for a weapon likely fall within the scope of the Second Amendment.” The opinion also stated that the district court did not abuse its discretion when it found the challenged statutes did not survive intermediate scrutiny. For a law to survive a constitutional challenge, the intermediate scrutiny standard requires that a law further an important...
  • Ex-CIA Director John Brennan: 'Be Patient, Mr. Trump Is A Temporary Aberration'

    John Brennan, who served as CIA director in the Obama administration, took a shot across the bow at President Trump after the president lashed out at Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for being “dishonest” and “weak." In a pointed tweet Sunday morning, Brennan said Trump is "a temporary aberration" whose impact on the U.S. will not last. "Your wrong-headed protectionist policies & antics are damaging our global standing as well as our national interests. Your worldview does not represent American ideals. To allies & friends: Be patient, Mr. Trump is a temporary aberration. The America you once knew will return,"...

    San Salvador, El Salvador - It's not every church service that includes homilies about Pablo Escobar and Al Capone. But at a church in El Salvador, the message of sin and redemption is tailored to a different kind of parishioner: reformed members of the notorious gangs in the Central American nation. All the men are former members of Barrio 18 or the 18th Street gang, which, along with MS-13, began in Los Angeles but is now responsible for much of El Salvador's widespread violence. The Trump administration announced last week that in 18 months it will revoke Temporary Protected Status...

    They clean federal office buildings in Washington and nurse older people in Boston. They are rebuilding hurricane-wrecked Houston. And working on the Atlanta Falcons’ new stadium. The plumbing and heating systems at Fannie Mae’s new headquarters, the porterhouse at Peter Luger Steak House and even the Disney World experience have all depended, in small part or large, on their labor. They are the immigrants from Haiti and Central America who have staked their livelihoods on the temporary permission they received years ago from the government to live and work in the United States. Hundreds of thousands now stand to lose...

    The Department of Homeland Security indicated Monday that it would end a quasi-amnesty program for 5,300 people in the U.S. from Nicaragua, but extend it for 86,000 people from Honduras.The U.S. had originally granted Temporary Protected Status to people from both countries after they were ravaged by Hurricane Mitch in 1998. Administration officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, told reporters late Monday that Acting Secretary Elaine Duke had determined that additional time is needed to consider the case of Honduras, triggering an automatic six-month extension.The officials said Duke decided to end the program for 5,300 Nicaraguans but would delay implementation...

    RUSH: Okay, we got some polling data in on the Trump executive order. Rasmussen: 33% — only 33% — oppose the ban. Only 33%. Now, you compare that with the way the media has portrayed these protesters and the movement and the supposed national outrage to this, a full 57%, which we’re gonna round up to 65% — well, there’s some unaccounted for here, there’s some don’t-knows and what’s the question-type answers. But 57% in the first poll supported Trump’s temporary ban. This was not turning our backs on refugees. This whole thing is so mindless. I can’t tell you...

    Israel will accept refugees from Syria for the first time since the Syrian Civil War began in 2011, the Nanu10 Hebrew news site reported. Interior Minister Aryeh Deri approved a plan under which Israel will accept 100 children who were orphaned in the civil war. According to the emerging outline, the children will be housed during the first three months of their stay in Israel at a boarding school. They will then attend institutions provided by the Education Ministry, and the state will attempt to place them with foster families in Israel. They will remain in Israel under the status...

    In seven countries that recently experienced Zika outbreaks, there were also sharp increases in the numbers of people suffering from a form of temporary paralysis, researchers reported Wednesday. The analysis, published online in The New England Journal of Medicine, adds to substantial evidence that Zika infections — even asymptomatic ones — may bring on a paralysis called Guillain-Barré syndrome. The syndrome can be caused by a number of other factors, including infection with other viruses. Researchers studying the Zika epidemic in French Polynesia had estimated that roughly 1 in 4,000 people infected with the virus could develop the syndrome. The...

Just 42 percent of likely voters oppose a temporary ban.

    The deadline for temporary foreign workers to either become permanent residents or leave the country arrived Wednesday, leaving thousands of would-be Canadians scrambling. In 2001, the Conservatives set a deadline of April 1, 2015, for temporary foreign workers in low-skilled jobs who have been in Canada for more than four years to leave. The Canadian Federation of Independent Business says that leaves thousands of potential Canadians in jeopardy of deportation as their permanent residency applications are yet to be fully processed. The CFIB is calling for a faster track to residency for foreign workers in low-skilled jobs. "CFIB commended the...
  • The Insiders: This month’s jobs headlines don’t tell the true story

    Washington Post ^ | July 3 | Ed Rogers
    The headline of today’s jobs report, that 288,000 jobs were created in the last month, is positive. At least, it is better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick. However, as with most economic reports these days, there is a veneer of good news — but when you look closer, the White House is using the positive headlines to hide the growing deterioration of the American workforce. Last month, 523,000 full-time jobs were lost, while 799,000 part-time jobs were added. Another way of looking at these numbers is that almost all of the 288,000 jobs created last...

    Snowden Gets Temporary Asylum in Russia, Leaves Airport By PAUL SONNE MOSCOW—National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden has received asylum for a year in Russia and has left Moscow's Sheremetyevo Airport, his lawyer said on Thursday. NSA leaker, Edward Snowden, says the U.S. has left him "stateless". Is that the case? What happens when the U.S. revokes an American's passport? How often does that happen? How do you renounce your citizenship? WSJ's Jason Bellini has #TheShortAnswer. Anatoly Kucherena, a lawyer who has been representing Mr. Snowden in Moscow, said the U.S. fugitive received so-called "temporary asylum" for a period of...

    The private sector added just 84,000 jobs in June, a big miss from some projections that had it topping 100,000 for the month. More than 25,000 of those jobs came in temporary "help services" positions. Overall, private-sector hiring is down both sequentially and from the year-ago period. Last month, the private sector added 105,000 positions, including revisions upward this month. And in June 2011, the private sector added 102,000 jobs. The staggering temporary hiring represents both good and bad in the report. On one hand, the temporary health services industry added almost 33,000 more jobs compared with June 2011. It's...

    The economy has struck a soft patch that is likely temporary, and the second half of the year should be better, some economists say. Supply chain disruptions form the Japanese earthquake and tsunami have had a direct impact on manufacturing and the auto industry in particular. Additionally, the spike in oil and gasoline prices has hit consumer and business spending.
  • 'Temporary' Tax Code Puts Nation in a Lasting Bind

    12/14/2010 6:39:38 PM PST · by Nachum · 9 replies
    WASHINGTON—Welcome to the world of the temporary tax code. In the late 1990s, there were typically fewer than a dozen tax provisions that had just a limited lease on life and needed to be renewed every year or so. Today there are 141. Now Congress, taking up a deal worked out between the Obama administration and Republican leaders, is poised to turn the whole personal income-tax system into something of a temporary structure. The plan embraces a broad range of provisions—an extension of Bush-era rates, a new estate-tax formula—but for only two years. A payroll-tax cut in the bill is...

    U.S. corporations have a renewed emphasis on temporary hirings at the expense of permanent job placements. Years ago, inventory on-demand solutions arose at manufacturing companies around the world, resulting in improved returns on industrial invested capital and corporate profitability both in the U.S. and abroad. Not surprisingly, today, the trend of a broader use of temporary workers is the next generation of return optimization in an age of broad uncertainty and a wider-than-usual set of economic outcomes. Prior to the 2008-2009 Great Decession, temporary employment growth has signaled permanent hiring strength. The chart below plots the year-over-year percentage change in...

    Israel will agree to temporarily freeze construction in settlements in the framework of new understandings that Jerusalem will reach with Washington, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told European foreign ministers last week. Commenting on Clinton's statements, Israeli and American sources confirmed that the parties were close to reaching an agreement. But they said the deal was not expected to be mentioned publicly in the visit by U.S. President Barack Obama's envoy to the Middle East, George Mitchell.
