Border Patrol union chief calls Trump troop deployment 'a colossal waste'

Troops deployed on border a 'colossal waste.'

President Donald Trump's decision to deploy members of the National Guard to the southern U.S. border with Mexico is "a colossal waste of resources," according to the leader of a union representing members of the U.S. Border Patrol.

National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd, who represents roughly 15,000 agents, panned the measure that the president implemented last month to beef up border security and curb illegal immigration, regarding it as fruitless, according to a Los Angeles Times report released late Thursday. "We have seen no benefit," Judd said.

"When I found out the National Guard was going to be on the border, I was extremely excited," the union chief said, pointing to the impact that past troop deployments have had in easing functions for the Border Patrol.

But he added that this time around, "that has not happened at all."

Zuckerberg set up fraudulent scheme to 'weaponise' data, court case alleges

Zuckerberg charged with fraudulent use of user dataMark Zuckerberg faces allegations that he developed a “malicious and fraudulent scheme” to exploit vast amounts of private data to earn Facebook billions and force rivals out of business.

A company suing Facebook in a California court claims the social network’s chief executive “weaponised” the ability to access data from any user’s network of friends – the feature at the heart of the Cambridge Analytica scandal.

A legal motion filed last week in the superior court of San Mateo draws upon extensive confidential emails and messages between Facebook senior executives including Mark Zuckerberg. He is named individually in the case and, it is claimed, had personal oversight of the scheme.

Details of new NFL national-anthem policy appear to show league caved to Trump

NFL caves to TrumpThe NFL approved a new national-anthem policy on Wednesday in response to ongoing player protests that took over the 2017 season, and the league appears to have caved to the wishes of President Donald Trump and others who stressed the importance of "respecting the flag."

ESPN's Adam Schefter tweeted out the expected details of the policy.

Colin Kaepernick garnered national attention for his protests two seasons ago, kneeling during the anthem to bring attention to issues including police brutality and racial inequality in the justice system. While Kaepernick was out of the league in 2017, protests of a similar nature became more common across the NFL, with players including Michael Bennett and Marshawn Lynch taking part.

TVNL Comment:  Another erosion to the US Constitution.  The same people who demand their right to own assault weapons by citing the Second Amendment refuse to respect the First Amendment's right to freedom of speech.

The attorney for Stormy Daniels, Michael Avenatti, issued a letter to the U.S. Southern District Court and claimed that either Michael Cohen, Trump’s self-proclaimed “fixer,” or his lawyers had “begun to leak select audio recordings to the media that were seized in the FBI raids."
