1 lawmaker expelled, another resigns after affair cover-up

Todd CourseOne socially conservative Michigan lawmaker was expelled from office and another resigned early Friday after they rocked the Legislature with an extramarital affair and a botched attempt to conceal it with a fictional, sexually explicit email.

Republican Rep. Cindy Gamrat became just the fourth legislator to be kicked out in state history shortly after 4 a.m. An hour earlier, GOP Rep. Todd Courser resigned, effective immediately, when it became clear that majority Republicans had secured enough support from Democrats for his expulsion by promising to ask the attorney general and state police to investigate the lawmakers.

Both were immediately escorted from the chamber.

Senate Democrats voted to uphold the hard-fought nuclear accord with Iran on Thursday, overcoming ferocious GOP opposition and delivering President Barack Obama a legacy-making victory on his top foreign policy priority.


Israel resumes ethnic cleansing of the Negev

Israel resumes ethnic cleansing of NegevIn Israel's Negev desert, ethnic cleansing is once again rearing its ugly head.

The unrecognised Bedouin village of Umm Al Hiran faces demolition and replacement with a Jewish town, Hiran. Seven hundred villagers face displacement, and only because they are of the wrong ethnicity.

Umm Al Hiran is one of tens of unrecognised villages in the Negev, inhabited by descendants of the Abu al-Qian tribe. Located in the area of Wadi Attir, the village is divided into two areas: Umm Al Hiran and Attir.


Washington Supreme Court Expels Charter Schools From State Public School System

Wahington charter schools are not part of public systemThe charter school movement has been expelled from Washington state’s public education system, with a Supreme Court ruling late Friday that the privately run schools are not public schools under the state’s constitution.

Meanwhile, the quick fix for that sizeable hurdle sought by the state’s charter school proponents—a special legislative session—does not appear likely because Washington’s public education sector is embroiled in more controversial and larger battles.


Republican-led attempt to block Iran deal fails in Senate

Senate vote on IranRepublican efforts to scuttle Barack Obama’s nuclear accord with Iran were blocked by Democrats in the United States Senate on Thursday, paving the way for the president to implement the deal struck between Tehran and six world powers in July.

Senate Democrats filibustered a procedural vote on a measure that would have registered formal disapproval of the Iran deal, in effect stopping it in its tracks. The Senate voted 58-42, short of a required 60-vote threshold, on whether to end debate on the Iran deal, thus failing to even reach an up-or-down vote on the disapproval resolution itself.


Minister: Israel knows who killed Palestinian toddler, parents in arson

Palestinian family killed by arsonIsraeli authorities know who carried out a July arson attack on a Palestinian home in the West Bank that killed a toddler and his parents and left another child severely injured — but it may be too difficult to immediately prosecute the perpetrators, Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon said Thursday.

The government "believes they know who carried out the terrorist attack, but there is difficulty in putting them on trial,” Ya’alon told reporters. “I hope that we'll find the evidence necessary in order to bring the perpetrator of this heinous attack to justice."


Republicans Hold Planned Parenthood ‘Show Trial’ Based on Videos They Haven’t Seen

GOP FAUX hearingsOn Wednesday, the House Judiciary Committee held the first of several congressional hearings sparked by undercover videos purporting to show that Planned Parenthood profits from illegal sales of fetal tissue. Less than forty minutes had elapsed by the time someone quoted Adolf Hitler.

The hysteria lasted for nearly four hours, marked by claims that abortion providers start their day with a “shopping list” of body parts to procure; about a fetus’s face being cut open with scissors; about fetuses who “cried and screamed as they died” but weren’t heard “because it was amniotic fluid going over their vocal cords instead of air.”


California climate bill loses key gasoline provision

Jerry BrownMembers of the California Assembly have stripped key provisions out of a climate change bill pushed by Gov. Jerry Brown (D).

Lawmakers on Wednesday removed Brown’s proposal to cut the state’s gasoline consumption in half by 2030, The Los Angeles Times reports.   Other major provisions pushed by Brown, including a road repair fund and money for public healthcare, were also shot down by lawmakers this week.

“Oil has won the skirmish. But they've lost the bigger battle,” Brown said at a Wednesday press conference. “Because I am more determined than ever.”
