U.S. Supreme #Court deems half of #Oklahoma a #Native American #reservation


Source: https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-court-oklahoma/u-s-supreme-court-deems-half-of-oklahoma-a-native-american-reservation-idUSKBN24A268
The decision means that for the first time much of eastern Oklahoma is legally considered reservation land. More than 1.8 million people live in the land at issue, including roughly 400,000 in Tulsa, Oklahoma’s second-largest city.
Maybe they find out, that the rest of the land is robbed, too.

Supreme Court rules against Trump in 2 landmark cases about his taxes and financial records

The Supreme Court on Thursday struck down President Donald Trump's efforts to stop New York investigators from obtaining his financial records, a blockbuster ruling that gives Manhattan prosecutors the green light to continue probing the president while he is still in the White House.

In Trump v. Vance, the court ruled 7-2 in favor of Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance's efforts to subpoena Trumps's tax returns and other financial materials as part of a wider investigation into whether the president or his business violated state laws.

Facebook is out of control. If it were a country it would be North Korea

There is no power on this earth that is capable of holding Facebook to account. No legislature, no law enforcement agency, no regulator. Congress has failed. The EU has failed. When the Federal Trade Commission fined it a record $5bn for its role in the Cambridge Analytica scandal, its stock price actually went up.
Which is what makes this moment so interesting and, possibly, epochal. If the boycott of Facebook by some of the world’s biggest brands – Unilever, Coca-Cola, Starbucks – succeeds, it will be because it has targeted the only thing that Facebook understands: its bottom line. And if it fails, that will be another sort of landmark.
Because this is a company that facilitated an attack

I will be brief, as usual… #NETPopravkam

Reasons why:
1. The elaboration and voting procedure is completely inconsistent with the general norms of the law and common sense. Thus cannot be recognized as legitimate.
2. Prolonging the power of the current elites for life, de facto. (a. 81.3¹)
3. It discredits the people living in the country, chauvinistically mentioning them separately from the superior "state-forming" nation. (a. 68.1, 69.1)
4. It will be used to violate international agreements unilaterally. And for escalation of conflicts with other countries. (a. 79)

And just as the law in civilized countries assumes that the voice of conscience tells everybody, “Thou shalt not kill,” even though man’s natural desires and inclinations may at times be murderous, so the law of Hitler’s land demanded that the voice of conscience tell everybody: “Thou shalt kill,” although the organizers of the massacres knew full well that murder is against the normal desires and inclinations of most people. Evil in the Third Reich had lost the quality by which most people recognize it — the quality of temptation.

In our #political system, the #government “derives its just powers from the #consent of the #governed,” to quote the #Declaration of #Independence. But the “just powers” of government cannot be #unlimited, because they exist most fundamentally to secure the #God-given #rights of #life and #liberty, so that each of us can exercise our moral agency—the ability “to act for [ourselves]and not to be acted upon”[xiii]—and be #accountable before #God for our #choices and #actions.
#Constitutions, #representative government, checks and balances, and the rule of #law help constrain the tendency of government to exercise #unlimited #power.
