    Default All Purpose News and Politics Thread Part IV: The Center Cannot Hold

    Re-adjusting the thread count, after we had a APN&PT #1, a #2 (Two Steps Beyond), and the third one getting numbered incorrectly (Two Steps Beyond #2) and staying that way for 1,000 pages.

    So anyway, yeah, brand spanking new news and politics thread. Whee.

    https://chicago.suntimes.com/news/cp...ootage-police/

    A new surveillance video shows Chicago police officers push and drag a student down a set of stairs at Marshall High School on the West Side before punching her and shocking her with a stun gun multiple times.
    The video, obtained by the Chicago Sun-Times, appears to contradict the officers’ statements on how the incident unfolded, including that the student initiated the violent encounter — again raising questions of the oversight, training and stationing of police officers in Chicago Public Schools.
    But we should totally trust the Chicago PD, right?

    Pentagon's transgender policy to take effect, years after Trump tweeted about the ban

    The Pentagon's new policy that places limits on the military service of transgender individuals goes into effect on Friday, nearly two years after President Donald Trump tweeted that he wanted to ban transgender individuals from serving in the U.S. military.

    The new policy largely requires service members and those wishing to join the military to adhere to the standards associated with their biological sex.

    Service members diagnosed with gender dysphoria, defined as "a marked incongruence between one's experienced/expressed gender and assigned gender ... associated with clinically significant distress and impairment of functioning," will no longer be allowed medical surgeries for gender transition unless they are currently in the process of receiving medical treatment. And transgender individuals who have received hormones or medical surgery related to their transition are now barred from joining the military, even if they can prove stability in their preferred gender.

    A string of lawsuits were filed after Trump called for the ban in July 2017. He has not tweeted about the issue since.

    On 11 April 2019, Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir has been ousted from power by the Sudanese military after 30 years of being in control of Sudan.

    If only the North Korean fat boy can join him before this year has ended.

    Given how bad crisis in Venezuela is, I won't be surprised Maduro will be out in a few months.

    One dictator down, a few more dictators to go.

    Matt Gaetz still is an asshat.

    #BREAKING: Today I filed the “PENCIL Act,” expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that “Congressman Adam Schiff should be removed from the House Intelligence Committee and his security clearance immediately revoked.” https://t.co/1FsMt6NUjr

    Herman Cain knows that his role is to be window dressing for the Republican Party so that they can say that they're not racist because they like Herman Cain.

    The Russians have troops in Venezuela. They seem to think Maduro is worth propping up.

    He's fullfilling his purpose by shutting up and keeping the seat warm.

    trump plans on dropping off immigrants into sanctuary cities. I wonder if they realize that they can just move about wherever in the US and that it'll increase more immigration on the southern border.
