Buh Bye ICE

NY becomes first state to block ICE from making arrests in courthouses without judicial warrant

Mass deportation agents are now barred from arresting immigrants inside New York courthouses unless they have a federal judicial warrant or order, the state’s Office of Court Administration has ruled. It’s a victory long in the making for immigrant rights advocates, who have called for courthouses to be off-limits to Immigration and Customs Enforcement, arguing that arrests at courthouses trample on public trust in the justice system.

“A report by the Immigrant Defense Project said there were 178 arrests in New York state courthouses last year compared to 11 in 2016,” the AP reported, “and advocates have said immigrants are increasingly fearful to visit courts as a result." The group said that “some were appearing in court for traffic violations before immigration agents grabbed them.” In one instance, ICE agents were stalking immigrants outside a human trafficking court in Queens.

He told NYPD that his car had run out of gas. Sure, that explains the two butane lighters. Ding dong, ding dong. A different sort of bats in the belfry.

I would hope that high-profile houses of worship (and historically black ones) are putting on extra security.

BTW, the French authorities say something shorted up on the roof. Electrical fire. The alarm went off, and nobody could see anything. (Oh sure, that means no fire, for sure..... not) The alarm went off again, and this time they could see it really well, because it was out of control big time.

Yankees stopped playing Kate Smith's 'God Bless America' after discovering her racist songs

The New York Yankees have played “God Bless America” during the seventh-inning stretch since 9/11, and for most of that time, the version fans would hear booming from the speakers was Kate Smith’s well-known rendition. But the Yankees have stopped playing her recording of the song.

Why did the Yankees eliminate Smith from their seventh-inning routine? According to the New York Daily News, it’s due to several songs Smith recorded in the late 1930s that include shockingly racist language and imagery. From the Daily News:

Leader of armed white ‘militia’ group that detained migrants at the border arrested by FBI

This week the New York Times and Guardian reported that a group of armed, white nationalist vigilantes calling itself the “United Constitutional Patriots” were coordinating with the United States Border Patrol to detain and hold at gunpoint groups of allegedly undocumented immigrants in southern New Mexico. Videos posted by members of the group showed them falsely identifying themselves as border patrol agents and threatening groups of helpless, kneeling migrants (including children) with semi-automatic weapons, after which they are seen contacting the Border Patrol. According to the group’s spokesman, Border Patrol agents were well aware of and tolerated the activities of this group, which the ACLU has characterized as a ”fascist militia organization.”

Private groups of individuals have no authority under any federal or state law to “detain” people they “think” are undocumented immigrants. Reports of the group’s thuggish activities prompted a sharp outcry by the ACLU and others, who demanded action be taken against these vigilantes by New Mexico’s Democratic governor, Michelle Lujan Grisham. On Saturday, the FBI arrested the UCP’s leader, a convicted felon named Larry Hopkins, charging him with firearms violations.

Two more states are dumping Christopher Columbus to celebrate indigenous people instead

More states are ditching Christopher Columbus.

Vermont and Maine are the latest to join the growing number of cities, states and municipalities that have renamed the October holiday for the people who lived in America long before the explorer arrived.

Court Says Using Chalk On Tires For Parking Enforcement Violates Constitution

The next time parking enforcement officers use chalk to mark your tires, they might be acting unconstitutionally.

A federal appeals court ruled Monday that "chalking" is a violation of the Fourth Amendment.

I read that. The rationale for the decision is interesting. Of course, augmented GPS, pattern-recognition software, and side-pointing cameras in the cop vehicles could render it moot. More expensive than chalk, but no property is violated and the cop doesn't have to do as much to ding somebody. In fact if it's an automated ding, like the red light cameras, he needn't do anything at all. Your ticket is in the mail.

I have a hard time saying this is unconstitutional. The reason for this is if a car is left unattended on a public street the person doesn't have unlimited Fourth Amendment protection just as a person doesn't have an unlimited First Amendment right to shout fire in a crowed theater. Now, if the car is on private property then I could see the argument but to place a chalk mark on the car doesn't, IMO, amount to an unreasonable search and seizure because it's near a search or a seizure.

Jennifer Lopez-owned Fuse Media files for bankruptcy protection

Jennifer Lopez-owned millennial and Gen Z entertainment media brand Fuse Media has filed for bankruptcy on Monday (April 22) in a bid to cut approximately US$200 million in secured debt.

More specifically, the company filed for voluntary pre-packaged Chapter 11 protection, as well as filing a series of motions, known as “First Day Motions,” with the Bankruptcy Court. These would give Fuse authority to pay its employees as usual and honor its go-forward operating expenses.

As Cord Cutting Grows Comcast, AT&T, & Verizon Lost Over 900,000 Subscribers in Just 3 Months

For all the talk of cord cutting slowing down, there seems to be no sign of it. So far, with just Comcast, Verizon, and AT&T reporting their first quarter 2019 numbers, over 900,000 people canceled their pay-TV service.

If this trend continues through 2019 and does not speed up, Comcast, AT&T, and Verizon will lose over 3.6 million subscribers in 2019.

Their fault for clinging to bundling. So they try to make it up by raising the price of broadband service every chance they get. It is not hard to see an incipient death spiral here. I haven't seen an industry in need of a new concept this badly since the mess over AM stereo.

The problem with the cable providers is they bundle their services. I have no problem having my cable TV and internet services in a basic package but I'd rather they have a-la-carte pricing on the other channels. Most of the channels I get I don't watch but they are part of the bundle packages. Beyond the basic channels, I watch mainly BBC America and some Showtime. If they offered a-la-carte pricing I could reduce my cable bill considerably.

NRA’s Oliver North stepping down as power struggle roils organization

NRA President Oliver North said on Saturday he will not serve a second term and is stepping down after a bitter power struggle with executive director Wayne LaPierre.

According to USA Today, “North’s surprise move came after LaPierre charged that North, a controversial figure in the 1980s Iran-Contra scandal, was trying to drive him out of the organization. North, 75, was finishing out his first year as president this week. NRA presidents normally serve two consecutive terms in the unpaid position.”
