Interesting wording, there.

Nikki Haley is meeting with the IAEA later this month, over Iran's nuclear program.

Basically, the USA has to certify that Iran is following JCPOA every four(?) months, as a signatory to the treaty (the actual evaluations and investigations are carried out by the IAEA - which released its report last month showing Iran was continuing to be compliant).

Trump did certify Iran last time around...but it took significant bipartisan pressure and his own SecState to get him to sign it, on the day before it lapsed, and he wasn't very happy about doing so.  So, watch out for something to happen at that meeting, and to subsequently happen in October, when Trump is due to sign again.  I have a bad feeling...

Trump's considering pardoning Sheriff Joe.

I based it on actual problems lawyers representing suspected terrorists have. 

So some company called Pastdue Credit Solutions keeps sending me letters saying i've got outstanding debt with NPower for the student accomodation I lived in.

Hilariously they managed to get the dates, address and my name wrong on the letter which were my first clues that something wasn't right.

General consensus online agrees that this is a company just trying to scam people with scary letters.

Suggestions for amusing/effective methods of retaliation welcome.

Write back posing as another family member's solicitor.

Tell them you have run off to join the YPG.

As a member of a desginated terrorist organisation, trying to collect funds from you would put them in contravention of the Terrorism Act (2006) as pertains to terrorist financing and they are advised to confer with the National Crime Agency on how best to seek repayment.

You mean you didn't leave your door unlocked during the crack cocaine epidemic?

The rural numbers can be a significant political advantage though, due to the way the US political system is set up and weighted.

Trump lost the popular vote by 5 million, after all.  If the Dems don't take rural areas, they might find themselves dealing with a Trump-ized, alt-right Congress come 2018.  Just like Obama had to deal with a Tea Party Congress from 2010 on.

Daily reminder: I am still more qualified to talk about terrorism than fake-PhD, fake-terrorism expert, White House Special Adviser Seb Gorka.

3 days ago Seb Gorka said people should stop going on about white supremacists and terrorism.

Yeah, I'd definitely like to see some confirmation on this.

It's also worth pointing out, even if APT29 didn't undertake the hack, APT28 ("Fancy Bear", suspected Russian military intelligence asset) had broken in and was passively watching the flow of data through the DNC servers for the better part of a year.

Lots of tech journalists have poured cold water on this story.  As they're pointing out, it's a single anonymous source who claims to have found hidden, encrypted metadata in the files...pretty dubious sounding under the best of circumstances.

Has anyone told him Britney Spears is, like, 40 now?

I'm mostly hoping the shock will kill him.

Ah, "my enemies have grown a brain, I must burn down everything."  Yeah, I can see that.
