BREAKING: In huge blow to Trump, a federal judge just struck down Zinke's reversal of Obama moratorium on federal coal leasing.

THREAD: The retail apocalypse in full swing: Gymboree closes 800 stores, Shopko 105, Payless 2300, Charlotte Russe 400. What’s behind it? Some blame Amazon or changing taste, but the real culprit is private equity. We’ll explain how PE makes money as these businesses fail. 1/12
(a thread on private equity firms needing to get in the sea)

.@billshortenmp: Within our first 100 days, if elected, Labor will restore penalty rates. Get them back to double time on Sunday's, & to double time & a half for the public holidays. MORE: http://bit.ly/2UO1LWr #livenow https://t.co/zaGTc8pTHI
what people forget is that is that the "cut" was removing the legislation that forces business to pay penalty rates. there is nothing stopping business from paying penalty rates on their own accord
so people now blame the government because business is greedy and doesn't want to pay their workers unless they have too

@StacyJannis @WendySiegelman @ianshapira @meekwire @911CORLEBRA777 @kelly2277 @ZevShalev @mehdirhasan @jeremyscahill @RYP__ I dropped off Erik in Tripoli in 2013. He used Maleth Aero out of Malta to fly Haftar and small arms in and out of Libya. Word was UAE/MBZ was the customer.
👀
Not for nothing but if the Mueller report lets investigation into Erik Prince's war mongering happen I'd count that as a pretty big win 🤷‍♂️
> Giuliani: "In some ways I'd love to have a trial" to contest some Mueller findings
lol

Rep. Duncan Hunter posts video hopping over a vehicle barrier near Yuma, saying “this is how easy it is to cross the border in Yuma.” Turns out, his terms of parole don’t allow him to leave the US. Turns out, that isn’t the border barrier after all. He faked this stunt. https://t.co/wMOWzlYRhT
lmao
Thai navy boards cabin of fugitive bitcoin-trading 'seasteaders' facing death penalty for violating Thai sovereignty. Soooo much to unpack here. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-thailand-seahome-idUSKCN1RW06T
(he fled, and the penalty is only possibly a death sentence, but the Thai government does seem pretty pissed for whatever reason)
 
Maybe having youtubers run your political party wasn't the best idea after all
(tbf, probably 17% of that is Nigel's new brexit party)

@Wipqozn ANd so it begins:
We are losing Inter Library Loans at all Southern Ontario Libraries, and possibly all deliveries between branches. Individually negotiated replacements will only cost more. The money saved is less than a third of the public cost of political stickers being put on gas pumps.

@Ash this is awful

@GodEmperorDune I am so mad at it

1 dead in western Quebec as waters rise and army begins deployment
https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/montreal/officials-remain-on-flood-alert-quebec-1.5105493
> Authorities remain on high alert for flooding across southern Quebec as waters continue to rise with military on the way to assist in evacuations.
> A least one death can be attributed to the flooding. A woman in her 70s was killed early Saturday morning in Pontiac, Que., about 50 kilometres west of Ottawa, when the car she was driving fell into a massive hole created after floodwaters washed out a road, Pontiac's mayor Johanne Labadie said.

Has anyone read the Bob Woodward book Fear?

“U.S., Russia say cannot support a U.N. call for #Libya truce” This is very disturbing. How can countries back ⁦@GhassanSalame⁩ & then reject his appeals for a ceasefire? ⁦@UNSMILibya⁩ https://www.reuters.com/article/us-libya-security-un-idUSKCN1RU2ML
@Jolenealaska I have not
 
Chilling. The prologue alone should be shouted from the mountaintop.
I have the audiobook, and I'm using transcription software. I'll post the prologue in a bit.
Trump is more than just stupid and dishonest. He's seriously dangerous.
Not that I didn't know that before, but holy shit.
