    08/13/2022 2:32:21 PM PDT · by BenLurkin · 8 replies
    The advisory initially covered 23 Metro Detroit communities Saturday morning, but was updated to include only 13 by Saturday afternoon. The advisory was lifted for the following communities: Clinton Township, Flint, Flint Township, Rochester Hills, Pontiac, Auburn Hills, Orion Township, Utica, Troy, Sterling Heights and Lapeer. Officials say that crews have identified the location of a leak on a 120-inch water transmission main that distributes finished drinking water from a Lake Huron water treatment facility. According to Great Lakes Water Authority, an estimated 935,000 people were impacted as of Saturday morning. Officials are investigating the cause of the water main...
  • Risk of chemical explosion prompts evacuations in Perris [CA]; 215 Freeway closed

    A HAZMAT team responded to Harvill and Old Oleander avenues after a large plume from railcar was reported just before 7:45 p.m. Thursday, Cal Fire Division Chief John Crater said during a news conference Friday morning. Wind gusts helped spread the initial plume until it covered a two-mile area over the city of Perris, Crater said. The leaking chemical in the railcar tank was identified to be styrene, which is used to make foam products for commercial purposes. Crater consulted with experts who told him that heat building in the railcar could still cause a release. “Meaning some sort of...

    The old news of the leak of Justice Alito’s draft opinion last May overruling Roe v. Wade has now been swamped by the new news of the Supreme Court’s final opinion a month later. That final opinion, almost identical to Alito’s draft and joined by five of the nine Justices, held that Roe was wrong. As a matter of fact and law, the Constitution never mentions, alludes to, or implies a Constitutional right to abortion.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Less than 24 hours after the unprecedented leak of the draft opinion that overturned Roe v. Wade, Chief Justice John Roberts ordered an investigation into the “egregious breach. " Since then? Silence. The Supreme Court won't say whether it's still investigating.

    The shock of the ruling doesn’t seem to be there. Because it wasn’t a surprise. Now that the Opinion overruling Roe v. Wade is out, the reaction while furious, seems like resignation. That’s not to say someone else won’t try to physically attack Justices or otherwise commit violence. It’s also not to say that Democrats won’t try to make it into an electoral issue, though I don’t think that will work (people angered at the opinion likely vote Democrat anyway).But the shock of the ruling doesn’t seem to be there.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — With Congress deadlocked over how to address racism and excessive use of force, President Joe Biden plans to sign an executive order on policing Wednesday, the second anniversary of George Floyd’s death, according to three people familiar with the matter. The decision reflects Biden’s struggle to use the limited powers of his office to advance his campaign promises, as well as his attempt to strike a balance between police and civil rights groups at a time when rising concerns about crime are eclipsing calls for reform. The order would require federal law enforcement to review and revise...

    ASHINGTON (AP) — When Gail Curley began her job as Marshal of the U.S. Supreme Court less than a year ago, she would have expected to work mostly behind the scenes: overseeing the court's police force and the operations of the marble-columned building where the justices work. * * * Earlier this month, however, Curley was handed a bombshell of an assignment, overseeing an unprecedented breach of Supreme Court secrecy, the leak of a draft opinion and apparent votes in a major abortion case.

Step three: World dominationSome Chinese have spent the past two years sky high on copium, struggling to deal with their government’s negligence in unleashing a plague upon the world by looking abroad for villains instead. Naturally they settled on the United States, with Fort Detrick reportedly having become a “household name” in China thanks to propaganda alleging that the coronavirus was secretly developed at that base. Forced to choose between believing that their own country, which saw SARS 1.0 arise in the wild, might also be...

    Chief Justice John Roberts’s announcement of an investigation into the leak of a draft Supreme Court opinion that would overturn Roe v. Wade has led to speculation about the form such an investigation would take and how effective it is likely to be. Based on our many years of experience conducting such investigations we know they can be challenging and disruptive to any organization, much less an institution where collegiality and confidentiality are sacrosanct. There are ways, however, to get to the truth while respecting the court’s singular and delicate ecosystem. Supreme Court Marshal Col. Gail A. Curley has been...

    And what has happened to Chief Justice Roberts, anyway? Old Joe Biden said Tuesday that Justice Samuel Alito’s leaked draft majority opinion overturning Roe v. Wade was “really quite a radical decision” and “a fundamental shift in American jurisprudence,” but as usual, he was lying. Alito’s decision appears to be carefully reasoned, firmly based on what the Constitution actually says, and written with a full recognition of the nature and importance of judicial precedent. What is unprecedented is the leak that has allowed us to evaluate this decision before the Court has actually ruled on the case at hand, Dobbs...

    SCOTUS Blog ^ | May 5, 2022 | By Tom Goldstein
    Among the debates generated by the leak of Justice Samuel Alito’s opinion in Dobbs is whether the leaker was conservative or liberal. The leak will ultimately pale in importance to the court’s decision once it is issued; the ruling will directly affect the lives and rights of tens of millions of people. But in the meantime, the motives of the leaker are an important topic because they help explain why an institution that zealously guards its secrets suddenly seems porous. Start from the premise that there were actually (at least) two leakers, and three leaks. The first leak was to...

    MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough doubled down on suggesting the leak of the Supreme Court’s draft opinion overturning the Roe v. Wade ruling was from someone on the right. Scarborough argued that the “right-wing noise machine always churns into overdrive” when the U.S. Supreme Court comes into play about topics like abortion, which is why he said so many Republicans had accused someone on the left of being the leaker.

    ....But if you strain your ears and concentrate really, really hard, you can detect a separate faint murmur of concern. Some of those on the right, who have been getting through the disaster that is the Biden administration by looking forward to the absolute bloodbath the 2022 midterms promise to be, are quietly voicing their fear that Roe v. Wade being overturned will energize the Left and hand the midterms over to the Democrats. No worries — Athena is here to allay your fears.

Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., for claiming that Republicans want to ban interracial marriage. "The Republicans won’t stop with banning abortion. They want to ban interracial marriage. Do you want to save that?" Swalwell wrote on Twitter late Monday night. "Well, then you should probably vote." "Hi Eric, my name is Wesley Hunt, I’m a Republican nominee in a Congressional District that is 70% white. I’m black, I’m in an interracial marriage, and my wife and I have two biracial daughters," Hunt tweeted in reply on Tuesday....

'To the extent this betrayal of the confidences of the Court was intended to undermine the integrity of our operations, it will not succeed.

  • ANOTHER SCOTUS LEAK: Chief Justice Roberts Is Willing to Uphold Mississippi Law Banning Abortions at 15 Weeks But Did Not want to Overturn Roe v. Wade

    Chief Justice Roberts, who reportedly joined the liberal judges on the court in the upcoming decision, was trying to barter with the conservative judges in their negotiations. Roberts is reportedly willing to uphold the Mississippi law that would ban abortion at 15 weeks of pregnancy. It appears that five justices would be voting to overturn Roe. Chief Justice John Roberts did not want to completely overturn Roe v. Wade, meaning he would have dissented from part of Alito’s draft opinion, sources tell CNN, likely with the court’s three liberals.
