Justice Department To Abolish Movie Distribution Rules Dating To 1949

Walmart CEO: 'We could go away at any minute'

(CNBC) -- Walmart is constantly evolving to avoid dying off, as plenty of other retailers have, according to the company’s chief executive officer.

“Walmart is not arrogant,” CEO Doug McMillon said at CNBC’s Evolve Summit in Los Angeles on Tuesday morning. “We could go away at any minute. I think most of us act that way every day. If you’re not willing to fail — and we are failing at some things — you’re going to go away.”

McMillon went on to say that, at Walmart, “everything is open to change.”

Christian campus training: 'If you're breathing, you're biased'

(COLLEGE FIX) -- Diversity training at a prominent Christian university seems to suggest that merely being alive is enough to qualify one as biased.

Baylor University’s Equity Office recently offered a training session called “If You’re Breathing, You’re Biased.” The event, which was held last Wednesday, was styled as an “introductory workshop to Building an Inclusive Community.”

“You probably don’t even know you have biases. The problem is that biases are unconscious,” the event listing reads:

FCC Chairman Wants Public Auction To Repurpose Satellite Bands For 5G

Oklahoma student gov ditches 'Boomer' and 'Sooner' for more 'sensitive' words

(CAMPUS REFORM) -- Students at the University of Oklahoma are working to remove the school’s “Boomer” and “Sooner” nicknames out of concern that the words are offensive to Native Americans.

According to the OU Daily, the Undergraduate Student Congress met Nov. 12 to mandate a name change for the “Sooner Freshman Council”, citing the words “boomer” and “sooner” as offensive to the Native American community.

The university uses the nickname “Sooners” for its athletic teams and other purposes, as well as similar references to “Boomers.” Both words, in this case, refer to groups of settlers who arrived in the late 1800s to what is now the state of Oklahoma.

Valve Announces Half-Life: Alyx, Its First Flagship VR Game

How to disunite America

This week, Chick-fil-A, the immensely popular Christian-owned chicken sandwich giant, caved to the cultural left. For years, the left targeted Chick-fil-A, dating back to the 2012 revelation that Chairman and CEO Dan Cathy supports traditional marriage – and, horror of horrors, that charities given donations by Chick-fil-A support traditional marriage. This prompted paroxysms of outrage in the media, who quickly demanded that Chick-fil-A tow the Democratic Party line, despite the fact that then-President Barack Obama did not officially endorse same-sex marriage until May 2012.

The rage of the cultural left led to unsuccessful boycotts – Chick-fil-A's business expanded from $1 billion in 2001 to $5 billion in 2013 to $10.5 billion today – but successful hijackings of local government. When the cultural left can't achieve what it wants through public mobilization, it simply uses the power of government to blackmail those it dislikes.

So, despite the fact that Chick-fil-A had never discriminated against gay customers – it would sell a chicken sandwich to anyone – then-Boston Mayor Thomas Menino promised to ban the franchise from the city. Then-Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel quickly followed suit, pledging to support an alderman's plan to block Chick-fil-A from opening a restaurant at Chicago O'Hare Airport. San Antonio recently blocked Chick-fil-A from opening a restaurant at its airport, and the airport in Buffalo, New York, followed suit. San Jose, California, pledged not to renew Chick-fil-A's lease when it ran out.

Chick-fil-A has continued to receive blowback – and the blowback has widened, helped along by a hostile media. So Chick-fil-A decided to back down and announced publicly that it will no longer donate to traditional Christian charities such as The Salvation Army, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and the Paul Anderson Youth Home. Chick-fil-A President and Chief Operating Officer Tim Tassopoulos explained, "as we go into new markets, we need to be clear about who we are."

Well, now they're clear. They're chickens.

Our First Amendment culture is endangered when local governments are given the capacity to block businesses from operating, not on the basis of business discrimination but on the viewpoint of the company's founders alone. That's precisely what's happening here. If giving to Christian charities now bars you from opening a restaurant at the airport, our culture is beyond the point of no return.

But there's something even more troubling going on here. In a free country, of course we get to choose which businesses to patronize. But is it good for the culture for us to segregate our business based on examining the politics of those who own our companies? Do we really want a country where we shop based on political affiliation? Where every decision, every day, is rooted in partisanship?

America's social fabric is already fraying. Politics has invaded everything from education to sports, from movies to fashion. Should politics now determine where we buy a chicken sandwich? A country that punishes restaurants because its founders don't openly celebrate same-sex marriage is a country destined to bifurcate. And that's pretty fowl.

Ask Slashdot: What Happened To Holographic Data Storage?

Judge bars ICE from courthouse, ICE threatens judge with arrest

Many states, counties and cities have become self-declared "sanctuaries" for illegal aliens, forbidding local law-enforcement officers from cooperating with federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents.

Now, a judge in Salem, Oregon, has banned ICE from making arrests in courthouses.

ICE has responded, insisting its officers will continue to carry out their duties and will "consider carefully whether to refer those who obstruct our enforcement efforts for criminal prosecution."

So would a judge's order banning ICE arrests in her courthouses constitute "obstruction" that could be prosecuted criminally.

The nation might find out.

Law Enforcement Today reports Oregon Supreme Court Chief Justice Martha Walters on Thursday mandated that civil arrests in state courthouses are no longer allowed, unless the arresting agency has a judicial arrest warrant.

ICE spokeswoman Tanya Roman said her agency "will continue to carry out its mission to uphold public safety and enforce immigration law, and consider carefully whether to refer those who obstruct our lawful enforcement efforts for criminal prosecution."

Law Enforcement Today said "it means that anyone who obstructs federal law enforcement could be charged with crimes."

There already have been conflicts, Law Enforcement Today reported.

"In one incident in July of this year, agents had pepper-sprayed family members of Fabian Alberto Zamora-Rodriguez, a suspected illegal alien who was charged with sexual offenses involving minors, who hindering agents from detaining him at a courthouse in Astoria, Oregon," the report said.

ACLU spokesman Katherine McDowell said judges need to ensure "that everyone can seek justice in our courts."

And Walters had been asked by members of the state's Uniform Trial Court Rules Committee to impose the ban.

Roman said that if local law enforcement would cooperate, there would be fewer problems. But since they are not, ICE "agents are forced to go to the courthouses in order to enact their duties," the report said.

ACLU lawyer Leland Baxter-Neal said it's the enforcement that could cause concern.

But ICE officials, in a statement, said there's nothing unclear.

"ICE ERO officers have been provided broad at-large arrest authority by Congress and may lawfully arrest removable aliens in courthouses, which is often necessitated by local policies that prevent law enforcement from cooperating with ICE efforts to arrange for a safe and orderly transfer of custody in the setting of a state or county prison or jail and put political rhetoric before public safety," the statement said.

The federal agency said it's "ironic that elected officials want to see policies in place to keep ICE out of courthouses, while caring little for laws enacted by Congress to keep criminal aliens out of our country."

Deep State’s Impeachment Theatre Falls Apart

Dems scramble to protect whistleblower's identity

Democrat congressman breaks with party over 'Third-World'-style impeachment

Far from leading a bipartisan attempt to save the American republic, Democrats can't even seem to get their party on the same page when it comes to impeaching President Donald Trump.

Now, one Democratic lawmaker is sounding off over his party's impeachment push, likening the process to something you'd see in a European nation's power struggle or in a destitute third-world country.

New Jersey Rep. Jeff Van Drew spoke about his opposition to the impeachment process during a recent episode of "Maria Bartiromo's Insiders" on Fox Nation.

"We have to understand, impeachment is something that's supposed to be exceptionally unusual. It is supposed to be bipartisan. It is supposed to be fair," Van Drew said.

Van Drew and Minnesota Rep. Collin Peterson, both Democrats, turned heads when they voted against an impeachment resolution pushed by their own party weeks ago.

With the exception of those two rebels, the vote was largely split down party lines.

Van Drew and Peterson might be the only two House Democrats who see impeachment for what it really is -- a powerful tool in the constitutional system of checks and balances that should only be used in grave circumstances.

Instead, it seems the left is using the hallowed process as a method to undo the results of the 2016 presidential election.

"This has nothing to do with whether you like Donald Trump, or don't like him, or want to see him have a second term or win in an election," Van Drew said.

"This has to do with the institution of impeachment itself and not misusing it."

Although Van Drew may not be a fan of Trump himself, that doesn't mean he wants to see him impeached.

The impeachment process "should be rarely used," he told Fox Nation.

Many other Democrats, who have been calling for the Trump's removal since his first day in office, seem to have a different view.

But not Van Drew, who said the impeachment of a president is "more like something you would see in Europe or third-world nations."

Instead of trying to oust an elected official, the lawmaker hopes House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and others will begin working with the president to pass meaningful and effective legislation.

Citing the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement and the need to improve America's infrastructure as two things that Republicans and Democrats largely agree on, Van Drew suggested much can be accomplished if impeachment is shelved.

"So wouldn't it be wonderful at the end of this presidency, to the benefit of both political parties, but most of all, to the benefit of Americans," Van Drew said, "if we actually got some of these very important issues finished and taken care of instead?"

"We have a job. We need to do it," the lawmaker said, "whether we always like each other or not, whether we're the same party or not, whether we agree on everything or not. That's the deal, that's what we need to do."

Unfortunately for America, it doesn't look like Democrats are ready to throw in the towel on impeachment just yet.

Despite the fact that their case against Trump seems to be crumbling more and more by the minute, most Democrats appear determined to see this impeachment process out to its ugly conclusion.

Although Van Drew may not be a fan of Trump himself, that doesn't mean he wants to see him impeached.

The impeachment process "should be rarely used," he told Fox Nation.

Many other Democrats, who have been calling for the Trump's removal since his first day in office, seem to have a different view.

But not Van Drew, who said the impeachment of a president is "more like something you would see in Europe or third-world nations."

Instead of trying to oust an elected official, the lawmaker hopes House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and others will begin working with the president to pass meaningful and effective legislation.

Citing the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement and the need to improve America's infrastructure as two things that Republicans and Democrats largely agree on, Van Drew suggested much can be accomplished if impeachment is shelved.

"So wouldn't it be wonderful at the end of this presidency, to the benefit of both political parties, but most of all, to the benefit of Americans," Van Drew said, "if we actually got some of these very important issues finished and taken care of instead?"

"We have a job. We need to do it," the lawmaker said, "whether we always like each other or not, whether we're the same party or not, whether we agree on everything or not. That's the deal, that's what we need to do."

Unfortunately for America, it doesn't look like Democrats are ready to throw in the towel on impeachment just yet.

Despite the fact that their case against Trump seems to be crumbling more and more by the minute, most Democrats appear determined to see this impeachment process out to its ugly conclusion.
