Trump Says He’d Try Americans At Gitmo. Which Is Illegal.

TrumpA President Donald Trump might push for Americans accused of terrorism to be tried in military tribunal at the U.S. Navy base in Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, the Republican nominee told the Miami Herald on Thursday.

“I would say they could be tried there, that would be fine,” Trump said in a brief interview ahead of his speech to home builders in Miami Beach.

Under current federal law, it’s illegal to try U.S. citizens at military commissions. Changing the law would require an act of Congress.


Simone Biles, Michael Phelps, and Simone Manuel make history at the 2016 Rio Olympics.

Michael PhelpsOlympic history has been made ten times over at the 2016 Rio Games.

Michael Phelps has proven himself to be the greatest swimmer of all time — and perhaps the greatest athlete of all time. He’s broken so many records, including his own, in Rio that gold medal performances are expected.

We no longer have to wait with baited breath to see if Phelps will break the world record or come in first in his races, we assume he will.

Thailand shaken by multiple bomb blasts

Thailand explosionsThailand has tightened security after bomb attacks across the country killed four people and wounded many more, with authorities struggling to identify a motive and find the perpetrators.

Queen Simone Biles Claims Her Olympic Crown At Last

Simone Biles

And lastly, to floor, where Biles and Raisman are particularly strong. Biles needed better than a 12.4 to win, and Raisman better than 14.0 to grab silver. The deal was all but sealed. Raisman performed with the same skill, and with greater confidence, than she displayed when she won gold on the event in London in 2012, and scored a 15.433. She burst into tears upon finishing her routine, knowing that she had secured at least a silver medal.

And then, Biles. She smiled through her routine, surely knowing that the gold medal was already in her hands. When she finished her final tumbling pass — full twisting double back somersault — the stadium all but exploded. Raisman, Biles and their coaches clung on to each other, smiling, as they waited for Biles’ score.


Alex Baer: When Weird Just Isn't Enough

when weird just isn't enoughWe're not even into the tail-end, dog days of August and most of the country is already howling at the moon, scratching like mad at imaginary fleas, twitching and itchy all over, bothered and bewitched.

Oh, and, since exporting Industrial-Strength Gonzo-Crazy seems to be our new role in the global economy, let's add the rest of the world to the ranks of the queasy and squeamish.

I'm looking at some bookmarks and clippings heaped here and there, trying very hard to divine any signs of sanity.  Perhaps sanity no longer makes news, which is why it is not being reported.


Children are being Tasered by school-based police officers

Police taser studentsIt was just a dumb fight. Two boys, both juniors, stood in the hallway discussing a classic teenage hypothetical: whether one of them could win in a fight against another student. But when one of the teens, Scott, said he didn’t think his friend could win, things turned personal.

They flung curse words back and forth that Thursday morning in March, lurching through the hallway of Knightdale High School, slamming into a row of lockers and tripping over a trashcan. A video shot by another student shows a teacher breaking up the fight after a few seconds, and both teens ending up on the ground, hurt only in pride.

Donald Trump Says He Gives His Workers Childcare. His Workers Say That’s Baloney.

Donald Trump lied about child care for employeesDonald Trump has boasted that he provides childcare to his employees. “I do it all over, and I get great people because of it,” he said in November.

But an extensive review from The Daily Beast could find no evidence that this was true.
