Dr. Hill



Turns out the good ol' American capitalism may take care of some of  some of our problems as advertisers continue to distance themselves from the likes of Fox News and Rush Limbaugh. 

Wonderful model brought me home grown tomatoes and cucumbers.


Disconcerting when your shrink tells you "Roland, I wouldn't worry so much about your long term goals."

“You Are A Good Man”: Trump Praised Philippine President Duterte’s For His Blood-Soaked Crackdown On Drugs

by jonathanturley
We have previously discussed the worrisome affinity that President Donald Trump has appeared to show toward authoritarian figures like Turkish strongman Recep Tayyip Erdogan.  Now the Department of Foreign Affairs has reportedly released a transcript of the call between Trump and its blood-soaked president Rodrigo Duterte.  The transcript shows Trump heaping praise on Duterte specifically for his crackdown on drugs -- the very program that has made him an international pariah so its extrajudicial murders of suspects. Thousands have been reported murdered under Duterte's reign of terror for criminal suspects.  The White House has not denied the accuracy of the transcript.

Commerce Secretary Praises Lack Of Protesters In Saudi Arabia . . . Where Protests Are Illegalhttps://jonathanturley.org/2017/05/03/commerce-secretary-syria-bombing-was-dinner-entertainment-at-mar-o-lago/

by jonathanturley
It appears that Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross has found relief from the pesky protesters of Western democracies.  He gave an almost breathless account of how he didn't spot nary one protester in Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.  Just tranquil silence of the Saudis.  It could be that the Trump Administration found a country unanimously and enthusiastically supportive of its policies. It could also be that protests are generally unlawful in the Kingdom.  The Saudis however are famous for public demonstrations of a different kind from beheadings to the image above of festive hangings.

In Oryol, Russia, Orthodox Bishop Nektary (Nikolai Seleznev) has declared that he is entitled to a new form of manna from heaven in the form of a new top of the line, fully loaded luxury Land Cruiser.  When confronted by the ethical questions over the gift from a local agribusiness, Seleznev insisted that Jesus would have definitely taken such a sweet ride if it were offered.

EEOC v. EmCare, Inc. No. 16-10598


Before SMITH, PRADO, and GRAVES, Circuit Judges.

AFFIRMED. (May 19, 2017).

Posted in Employment-Retaliation, Employment-Retaliatory Discharge, Hostile Work Environment, Sexual Harassment, Title VII

Following a six-day trial, a jury found that EmCare, Inc. ("EmCare") terminated three employees in retaliation for complaining of sexual harassment in the workplace. The District Court denied EmCare's motion for judgment as a matter of law. EmCare appealed the judgment with respect to one employee, Luke Trahan. Specifically, EmCare contended that the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission ("EEOC") failed to present sufficient evidence of a causal link between Trahan's protected activity - complaining about frequent and persistent sexual remarks and gestures in the workplace -  and termination because there was no evidence that the individual who decided to terminate Trahan was aware he had engaged in protected activity. The Fifth Circuit decides that the District Court did not err in denying EmCare's motion for judgment as a matter of law. Because the jury could have logically inferred either that EmCare's chief operating officer knew of Trahan's complaints or that EmCare's vice president for human relations was involved in the decision to fire Trahan, the EEOC presented sufficient evidence of causation.

On Appeal from the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas (Barbara M. G. Lynn)
Attorney for Appellant - Steven W. Moore, Denver, CO
Attorney for Appellee - Paul D. Ramshaw, Washington, DC

Trump Administration Accused Of Leaking British Intelligence On Manchester Investigation

by jonathanturley
Royal_Coat_of_Arms_of_the_United_Kingdom_(HM_Government).svgMi5_crest_and_logotype.svgThis week President Donald Trump again made headlines in denying that he ever mentioned Israel in his giving highly sensitive intelligence to the Russians.  (The problem is that no one suggested that he had and the later statement appeared to reaffirm to the world that Israel was the source of the human intelligence from a spy inside ISIS).  Now the Trump Administration is accused of leaking British intelligence to U.S. media in the aftermath of the massacre in Manchester.  The British were reportedly irate and made a formal complaint over the violation of core protocols and protections for intelligence sharing.  This is a very serious complaint and further undermines the core relationships that we rely on in the sharing of national security information. It should result in an immediate congressional investigation to determine what happened.
