Activist critical of police undergoes use of force scenarios

Every person on this site who says that the police are *never* justified in shooting an unarmed person need to watch this video, then leave a comment.

Classification markings (specifically paragraph (portion) markings))

WAIVERS INVOLVING MARKING OF CLASSIFIED INFORMATION. Only the Director of the Information Security Oversight Office ( ISOO) may grant waivers to the marking requirements specified by References (d) and (f) for classified information. Any portion marking waiver approved will be temporary and will have specific expiration dates. Administrative burden alone will ordinarily not be viewed as sufficient grounds to support a waiver.

All classified information shall be identified clearly by marking, designation, or electronic labeling. If physical marking of the medium containing classified information is not possible, then identification must be accomplished by other means. The term “marking” includes other concepts of identifying the classification of the information. Markings, designations, and electronic labeling shall be conspicuous and immediately apparent

Just for clarification, Hillary Clinton was an Original Classification Authority (OCA) for documents originated within the Department of State. As such, she was REQUIRED to receive training on classification methods and marking. See below for a letter that describes this required training. This letter (Memorandum) has three portion markings One (U) unclassified and two classified at the Secret (S) level. I'm positive that ANYONE reading this will understand which paragraphs are classified at what level.

"I don't remember, or I thought those referred to paragraph numbering" is an outright LIE.

To indicate the appropriate classification level, the symbols ‘‘(TS)’’ for Top Secret, ‘‘(S)’’ for Secret, and ‘‘(C)’’ for Confidential shall be used (see Figure 2). Portions which do not meet the standards for classification shall be marked with “(U)” for Unclassified.

SUBJECT: (U) Delegation of SECRET Original Classification Authority (OCA)

(U) You are hereby delegated authority to classify information up to SECRET for
information under your area of responsibility in accordance with Executive Order 13526,
“Classified National Security Information” (the Order).

(S//REL) As an OCA you are required to receive training in original classification as
provided by the Order and implementing directives prior to you exercising this authority.
Your Security Manager will facilitate this training.

(S//REL) The Order also provides that OCAs shall prepare classification guides to
facilitate the proper uniform derivative classification of information. Request that you
provide a copy of your guide(s) to this office by December 31, 2009.

Melania Trump sues Daily Mail over reports that she worked for escort service;

Daily Mail issues retraction

I love the last part. It reminds me of Dan Rather's untrue, but accurate. Sure, Dan.

Melania Trump is suing the Daily Mail and Maryland-based blog Tarpley for $150 million, claiming defamation related to reports that she once worked for an escort service.

Trump, represented by Hulk Hogan’s former lawyer Charles Harder, threatened last week to sue several news organizations over the reports. The first to publish the allegation was Slovenian outlet Suzy magazine, which the Daily Mail cited.

Harder’s statement reads: "These defendants made several statements about Mrs. Trump that are 100% false and tremendously damaging to her personal and professional reputation.”

Tarpley retracted its report last week after being threatened with the lawsuit. After Trump filed her lawsuit Thursday, The Daily Mail retracted its original report, saying, "The Daily Mail newspaper article stated that there was no support for the allegations ... The point of the article was that these allegations could impact the U.S. presidential election even if they are untrue."

Assange to Megyn Kelly: "Significant" Leak Coming Before Election

KELLY: Do you -- you know, right now according to the average of all polls, she's beating Donald Trump by 5.5 points nationwide, she's way ahead of him in most of the swing states, not all, do you believe the information in your possession could be a game-changer in the U.S. election?

ASSANGE: I think it's significant. You know, it depends on how it catches fire in the public and in the media.

Hillary made mistake over emails:Bill Clinton

They just can't stop LYING. Her predecessors and successor did NOT do the same. She had a PRIVATE SERVER, none of the others mentioned did. I guess if you're a Clinton, you can just lie your ass off and get away with it.

Bill Clinton has said it was a mistake for Hillary Clinton to use a personal email server while secretary of state even though her predecessors and her successor did the same.

The former president says his wife should have known different rules would apply to her if she ever ran for the White House.

75 Percent Positive Response to Donald Trump Speech — So CNN Trashes Its Own Poll

But CNN’s report is flawed: the 56 percent number was actually the lower of two numbers. The instant poll actually showed that 75 percent of Americans had a positive view of the speech, and that 56 percent would be more likely to vote for him following the speech.

CNN apparently thinks so little of its own instant polling service that it buries the results in the bottom paragraphs of a tedious article citing the newspapers in Spain.

Cleared but no clean bill of health: Email issue to linger with Clinton until election day

From the LA Times no less.

Comey was unsparing in his criticism of Clinton, and the language that he used to describe her handling of classified materials— in particular the words “extremely careless” — are certain to resurface in an unending Republican playback loop between now and November.

The Hadith and questions concerning Islam.

I occasionally read other religious texts as a means to attempt an understanding of them. The Hadith in Islam is (generally speaking) a guide to the Qur'an. In one sense, it is like the Federalist Papers - a way of explaining the meaning of the book and its tenets. With that said, please read the following from the Hadith and explain to me how ISIS and other radical Islamic groups can justify the killing of non-combatants, women, children, and those unwilling to convert when the Hadith specifically prohibits it?

Chapter XIX Jihad

Qur'ân, i.e., a missionary effort to establish Islâm. We are further told that there should always be among Muslims a party who invite people to Islâm (v. 3). Thus the missionary jihâd of Islâm is to be carried on in all circumstances.

The sword could never be used to force Islâm on others. compulsion in religion being forbidden in clear words (v. 4). Fighting was undoubtedly allowed but it was expressly allowed only as a defensive measure against those who were bent upon annihilating Islâm by the sword, not to compel people to accept Islâm (vv. 5, 6). When persecution ceased and everyone was at liberty to profess whatever religion he liked, the sword had to be sheathed (v. 7). Even in the midst of the war, if the enemy wanted peace, war was to be discontinued

Non-combatants were not to be killed in battle, there being a prohibition against the killing of women and children (h. 16). Fighting was to cease if the enemy offered peace, even though his intention might be to deceive (v. 8), or if the enemy entered the brotherhood of Islâm (h. 17).

Labor And Business Can Agree On This: Congress Should Act On Immigration

Businesses and unions often disagree on public policy. But after the Supreme Court's tie vote on immigration Thursday, company executives and labor leaders united to call on Congress to settle the issue.

The high court's 4-4 deadlock means President Obama's plan to defer deportation for millions of workers who are in the country without visas has been blocked. A majority of justices would have been needed to overturn a lower court's ruling that Obama's plan was beyond the power of the executive branch.

But the Supreme Court stalemate did not establish a precedent, leaving the door open for lawmakers to step up.

Without the Obama policy on deportations in place and no comprehensive immigration plan completed by Congress, employers have been left confused about which workers might suddenly be deported.

It's really quite simple. You can't have open borders *and* a welfare state. Didn't we learn anything from the Brexit vote? Apparently, according to NPR ... No.

Just a bit of remedial instruction for certain posters here, the MSM, and Hillary.

The following are common "weapons of war" better known as ASSAULT weapons. The M249 is also known as a Squad Automatic Weapon (SAW) and is carried as an individual weapon, not crew served. You'll note, Hillary, the MSM, and others here at DI, that NONE of these weapons were used in Orlando or at Sandy Hook. So, when you say ignorant things like assault weapons and automatic weapons, you really look and sound like complete tools.
