When Nobu Hanaoka was 8 months old, the city where he lived and played was consumed by a fiery hell. On Aug. 9, 1945, a U.S. warplane released an atomic bomb over Nagasaki, Japan. The blast, heat, fire, and radiation from the bomb killed 40,000 people almost instantaneously. Roughly 70,000 died by year's end. Three days prior, the U.S. military had also exploded an atomic bomb over Hiroshima. Those killed immediately numbered some 90,000. Those dying by the end of 1945 numbered some 140,000.

Donald Trump's Racism Was on Full Display at the 2013 Miss Universe Pageant.

If a contestant's skin was too dark or she rejected his advances, she was out. | racism on full display. According to Michael Isikoff and David Corn, authors of the upcoming book Russian Roulette, Trump regularly vetoed pageant contestants whose skin was too dark for his standards, women who did not fit European standards of beauty, and anyone other woman who refused to tolerate his predatory sexual advances, as he is known to have made during past pageants. Per Mother Jones: Frequently, Trump would toss out finalists and replace them with others he preferred. "If there were too many women of color, he would make changes," a Miss Universe staffer later noted. Another Miss Universe staffer recalled, "He often thought a woman was too ethnic or too dark-skinned. He had a particular type of woman he thought was a winner. Others were too. . .

The Grave Terror Threat the United States Refuses to Acknowledge.
Chauncey DeVega, Salon | AlterNet.org | 2018-03-08
Far-right violence is on the rise. Why do pundits and politicians look the other way? | Over the course of the last 10 years, it is white Christian right-wing domestic terrorists, not Muslims or immigrants, who are responsible for the vast majority of deaths and injuries caused by political violence in the United States. With that information comes a puzzle. Islamic terrorism inspires panic and hysteria from conservatives and the mainstream news media. By comparison, terrorist acts committed by white Christians are usually met with shrugs of surprise, denials of reality and efforts to deflect any serious analysis of the threat. The Parkland, Florida, massacre provides the most recent example of this dynamic. Several weeks ago, Nikolas Cruz, an apparent white supremacist and Donald Trump supporter who reportedly had Nazi swastikas engraved on the magazines of his AR-15 assault rifle, went on a. . .

Will Trump Help Saudi Arabia Become a Nuclear Power?
Jacob Sugarman, AlterNet | AlterNet.org | 2018-03-08
A new lobbying effort threatens to upend the Middle East. | The House of Saud is angling for approval on a new nuclear power program, and Donald Trump just might grant it. According to The Young Turks' Ken Klippenstein, King & Spalding, a law firm that has previously represented the president in his real estate dealings, registered last month to lobby the White House on behalf of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Justice Department filings reveal the firm will receive $450,000 over a 30-day period to start, and talks are set to begin in a matter of weeks. King & Spalding's ties to the Trump administration are numerous. Beyond the link to the president, FBI director Christopher Wray served as a litigator at the firm from 2005-2017. As Klippenstein notes, the appointment drew the ire of the ACLU's political director Faiz Shakir,. . .

Lebanon: 5 Steps to Improve Women's Rights.
Human Rights Watch | Human Rights Watch News | 2018-03-08
(Beirut) — Candidates running in Lebanon's May 6, 2018 parliamentary elections should commit to five key steps to improve women's rights, Human Rights Watch said today, on International Women's Day. Political parties should also ensure greater participation of women in parliament by including women on their candidate lists. | Lebanon has made some positive incremental steps in recent years toward protecting women's rights, but is behind other countries in the region in some respects. In 2014, parliament adopted a landmark law on domestic violence, but it defined domestic violence too narrowly and failed to criminalize marital rape. In 2017, parliament repealed article 522 of the criminal code, which had allowed rapists to escape prosecution by marrying their victim, but left a loophole for cases concerning sex with children ages 15-17 and seducing a virgin girl into having sex with…

Just How Bad Is Inequality at America's Major Corporations?
Bob Lord | MintPress News | 2018-03-08
That America's income distribution has grown dramatically more unequal in the past 40 years is beyond debate. The share of the top 1 percent has doubled since 1980, to over 20 percent of all income. | Could it get any worse? A look at America's large, privately held corporations suggests it could. | When Americans think of large corporations, most of us think of corporations like Pepsi or ExxonMobil, whose shares are publicly traded. | We can know a fair amount about these companies from the reports they file with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Thanks to an Obama-era rule that recently went into effect, we even know how much their CEO makes compared to typical workers. | Many large corporations, however, are privately owned. Typically a single shareholder, members of the same family, or perhaps a small group of investors owns all…

Much has been made of the investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into whether Donald Trump's presidential campaign colluded with Russian operatives or the Russian government to win the November 2016 election. While there is yet to emerge solid evidence that attempted Russian meddling actually impacted the election's outcome, in recent days Mueller's probe may have turned in a far more damning direction: how Trump's family members may have used the president's political power to obtain business advantages, and specifically how Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner may be deeply implicated. | Several recent reports offer strong suggestions of corruption.

Lebanon: 5 Steps to Improve Women's Rights.
Human Rights Watch | Human Rights Watch News | 2018-03-08
(Beirut) — Candidates running in Lebanon's May 6, 2018 parliamentary elections should commit to five key steps to improve women's rights, Human Rights Watch said today, on International Women's Day. Political parties should also ensure greater participation of women in parliament by including women on their candidate lists. | Lebanon has made some positive incremental steps in recent years toward protecting women's rights, but is behind other countries in the region in some respects. In 2014, parliament adopted a landmark law on domestic violence, but it defined domestic violence too narrowly and failed to criminalize marital rape. In 2017, parliament repealed article 522 of the criminal code, which had allowed rapists to escape prosecution by marrying their victim, but left a loophole for cases concerning sex with children ages 15-17 and seducing a virgin girl into having sex with…

Dems Team Up with GOP to Weaken Bank Rules, Which Critics Say May Lead to More Bailouts & Misconduct.
Amy Goodman, Democracy Now! | AlterNet.org | 2018-03-08
The financial industry is getting a big handout. | On Tuesday, 16 Senate Democrats joined with 50 Republicans to advance a bill slated to roll back key financial regulations passed in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis. The bill would exempt 25 of the nation's 40 largest banks from being subject to heightened scrutiny by the Federal Reserve. If it passes, it would be the biggest weakening of the Dodd-Frank Act since it was signed into law in 2010. The 67-32 vote in favor of a "motion to proceed" now sends the bill back to the floor for debate and possible amendments before a final vote in the coming days.

Ex-Deputy Rams Truck Into Louisiana Store and Robs It After Mistaking Sikh Owners for Muslims.

He's been charged with a hate crime and impersonating a police officer. | A former sheriff's deputy who drove his pickup truck through the front of a Louisiana convenience store in a deliberate attack last Saturday night has admitted that he did it because he mistakenly believed the Sikh owners were Muslims.

After being taken into custody, Horsley admitted to investigators that he slammed his truck into the store just minutes before it closed. He then told them he did it because, as a former Marine, he was upset about other Marines fighting and dying in the Middle East and he thought the owners were Muslims. According. . .

Is Donald Trump Fueling a Mass Extinction of Democracy Across the Planet?
Jacob Sugarman, AlterNet | AlterNet.org | 2018-03-08
The warning signs are there, cautions "How Democracies Die" co-author Steven Levitsky. | Earlier this week, during a freewheeling speech to Republican donors at Mar-a-Lago, Donald Trump cracked the following joke about Chinese leader Xi Jinping: "He's now president for life. President for life. No, he's great. And look, he was able to do that. I think it's great. Maybe we'll have to give that a shot someday. "If he was doing his best Don Rickles impression, only the most febrile members of his base seemed amused. Since Trump abruptly removed James Comey as FBI director last May, the United States has been slowly lurching toward a constitutional crisis. In January, we learned the president had ordered the firing of special prosecutor Robert Mueller last June, only to back off after White House attorney Don McGahn threatened to resign. (. . .

Student Activists Are Fighting Back Against the Spread of Cops on Campus.

This tense moment in America's political climate has inspired some student activists to make a radically progressive demand, calling for strengthening mental health programs in schools, among other views, instead of flooding school premises with potentially aggressive police officers. One of those young people, Kaila Scaffey of Philadelphia's Central High School, told Splinter News that the gun legislation movement is also about "a call for divestment in police officers and an investment in counselors and mental health services.

Monitoring Kids' Social Media Accounts Won't Prevent the Next School Shooting.
Rachel Levinson-Waldman, Faiza Patel, Brennan Center for Justice | AlterNet.org | 2018-03-08
Invading students' privacy isn't the solution. | The Parkland, Fla. , school shooting has reignited the national conversation on what can be done to prevent such tragedies, which seem to occur with frightening regularity. One option, which already is used by many schools and probably will be adopted by more, is to employ companies that monitor students' social media feeds to flag threats of violence, as well as behavior such as bullying and self-harm. Miami-Dade County's school system has asked for $30 million in upgrades that include "advanced monitoring of social media," while schools in California, Ohio, Tennessee and Virginia have indicated that social media monitoring, including by third-party companies, is a key security feature. But schools should think long and hard before they go down this path. There is little evidence that such monitoring works, and. . .

Trump's Top Vote Suppressor and Illegal Alien Voter Claim Goes to Court.

On Tuesday, the trial of the lawsuit by the League of Women Voters against Kobach, Kansas' Republican Secretary of State, began in a Wichita courtroom. The League has sued to block the state's law, drafted by Kobach, requiring all new voters to show proof of citizenship.

Why Trump Is So Clumsy About Fighting 'Free Trade&#039
Marshall Auerback, AlterNet | AlterNet.org | 2018-03-08
There are better ways than simply slapping tariffs on imported goods. | President Trump announced last week that he plans to impose 25 percent tariffs on imported steel and 10 percent on imported aluminum. It's important to note that any policy pronouncement from this president is done within the paradigm of a real estate wheeler-dealer who sees deals of any kind as a zero-sum game. I win, and you lose; there is no such thing as a good trade deal that works as a win-win for both sides. Expressing the opposite view is Paul Krugman, who writes, "Trade isn't a zero-sum game: it raises the productivity and wealth of the world economy. " And the corollary also applies as well: any action taken to disrupt the free flow of goods between countries is likely to provoke a counter-reaction, the result being a trade. . .

Why Trump Is So Clumsy About Fighting 'Free Trade&#039
Marshall Auerback, AlterNet | AlterNet.org | 2018-03-08
There are better ways than simply slapping tariffs on imported goods. | President Trump announced last week that he plans to impose 25 percent tariffs on imported steel and 10 percent on imported aluminum. It's important to note that any policy pronouncement from this president is done within the paradigm of a real estate wheeler-dealer who sees deals of any kind as a zero-sum game. I win, and you lose; there is no such thing as a good trade deal that works as a win-win for both sides. Expressing the opposite view is Paul Krugman, who writes, "Trade isn't a zero-sum game: it raises the productivity and wealth of the world economy. " And the corollary also applies as well: any action taken to disrupt the free flow of goods between countries is likely to provoke a counter-reaction, the result being a trade. . .

Colombia Should Celebrate its Women Activists.

Monitoring Kids' Social Media Accounts Won't Prevent the Next School Shooting.
Rachel Levinson-Waldman, Faiza Patel, Brennan Center for Justice | AlterNet.org | 2018-03-08
Invading students' privacy isn't the solution. | The Parkland, Fla. , school shooting has reignited the national conversation on what can be done to prevent such tragedies, which seem to occur with frightening regularity. One option, which already is used by many schools and probably will be adopted by more, is to employ companies that monitor students' social media feeds to flag threats of violence, as well as behavior such as bullying and self-harm. Miami-Dade County's school system has asked for $30 million in upgrades that include "advanced monitoring of social media," while schools in California, Ohio, Tennessee and Virginia have indicated that social media monitoring, including by third-party companies, is a key security feature. But schools should think long and hard before they go down this path. There is little evidence that such monitoring works, and. . .

Ex-Deputy Rams Truck Into Louisiana Store and Robs It After Mistaking Sikh Owners for Muslims.

He's been charged with a hate crime and impersonating a police officer. | A former sheriff's deputy who drove his pickup truck through the front of a Louisiana convenience store in a deliberate attack last Saturday night has admitted that he did it because he mistakenly believed the Sikh owners were Muslims. According to police reports, Chad Horsley, 27, is accused of driving his truck into a Best Stop store and taking the ATM machine before pulling a gun on a witness and then driving off, reports the Advocate. After being taken into custody, Horsley admitted to investigators that he slammed his truck into the store just minutes before it closed.

Trump's Top Vote Suppressor and Illegal Alien Voter Claim Goes to Court.
Greg Palast, AlterNet | AlterNet.org | 2018-03-08
ACLU sues Kris Kobach for blocking 1 in 7 new voters. | The mainstream media has simply missed the voting rights trial whose outcome could unleash the newest mass vote suppression weapon, the invention of Donald Trump's chief vote suppression tactician, Kris Kobach of Kansas. On Tuesday, the trial of the lawsuit by the League of Women Voters against Kobach, Kansas' Republican Secretary of State, began in a Wichita courtroom. The League has sued to block the state's law, drafted by Kobach, requiring all new voters to show proof of citizenship. Kobach's law has blocked an astonishing 1 in 7 new registrants from voting in the state because they did not satisfy his citizenship paperwork requirement. The ACLU, which represents the League, has sent in its top litigators, led by its voting rights director Dale Ho, because of the nationwide implications of the case.

Is Donald Trump Fueling a Mass Extinction of Democracy Across the Planet?

"If he was doing his best Don Rickles impression, only the most febrile members of his base seemed amused.

Dems Team Up with GOP to Weaken Bank Rules, Which Critics Say May Lead to More Bailouts & Misconduct.

Lebanon: 5 Steps to Improve Women's Rights.

Media Erase US Role in Syria's Misery, Call for US to Inflict More Misery.
