(WASHINGTON) Republicans demand names of anti-Trump FBI employees from bombshell IG report: The letter said the lawmakers were “grateful” for Horowitz’s work in compiling the report, but added that they were requesting the names “in the interest of justice and transparency.” #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – June.20: A group of eight House Republicans has asked Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz to give them the names of FBI employees mentioned in last week’s report on the Hillary Clinton email investigation, some of whom were portrayed as anti-Trump: “As representatives of the American people, Congress deserves to know exactly who contributed to the abuse of power at the Department of Justice (DOJ) and FBI,” the letter reads. “These individuals need to be held accountable and only transparency will ensure that action.” #AceNewsDesk reports

Improving Police

download[Ed. Note: You may not often find the writing of poetry among the ranks of police. While I have written poetry since my early 20s, none of it addressed my work as a police officer — I wrote about justice, about loss and grief, race, and about being in love — but not about what I did for over 30 years — my time on the street. I pose to myself a question — Why? Why did I not write about this important part of my life and the people with whom I struggled and worked? Compartmentalizing? Avoiding? Was I trying to escape the life and death issues with which I faced as a cop? So here’s my recent endeavor as I try to poetically capture the events in the life I once knew, embraced, practiced, and which significantly influenced my life. Perhaps, more will come as I age.

No clear US plan yet on how to reunite children with illegal immigrant parents

Peace and Freedom

Trump administration officials say they have no clear plan yet on how to reunite the thousands of children separated from their families at the border since the implementation of a zero-tolerance policy in which anyone caught entering the US illegally is criminally prosecuted.

“This policy is relatively new,” said Steven Wagner, an acting assistant secretary at the Department of Health and Human Services “We’re still working through the experience of reunifying kids with their parents after adjudication.”

Federal officials say there are some methods parents can use to try to find their children: hotlines to call and an email address for those seeking information. But advocates say it’s not that simple.

Glasgow School of Art: sprinklers had not been fitted after first fire


17 June 2018

”Disbelief and sympathy has been expressed across the world over the misfortune of the building, considered the masterwork of the art nouveau architect and designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh, after it was engulfed in flames for a second time.”

The Weejies burning their city – yet again. Anymore fires and it will start resembling Tokyo circa WW2.

I believe the biological sciences describe the Weejies as ‘Arsonegenic’. I would have hated to have been a suspected witch back in the day. It would be another excuse for a burning.

Never mind eh – any improvement has to be welcomed. That said, I’m sure The Weej will be nice when it’s finished. Perhaps when the Israelis are finished with Palestine they could erect a fire-retardant wall around this lovely metropolis.

Peace to the humans.
