    DHS has barred citizens of New York State from enrolling or re-enrolling in Global Entry and Trusted Traveler programs, because of its recently enacted Green Light law that grants New York IDs to undocumented immigrants.

    https://www.thedailybeast.com/dhs-secretary-chad-wolf-tells-tucker-carlson-new-york-residents-will-pay-for-states-sanctuary-law

    So the paperwork for NY v. US is being filed in the morning I assume.

    As are the actual directives from DHS, apparently

    https://www.cnn.com/2020/02/06/politics/department-homeland-security-new-york-trusted-traveler-programs/index.html
    A federal law enforcement official told CNN that Customs and Border Proection in New York had not received an official directive from headquarters as of late Wednesday night. The official said the directive might come Thursday morning, and would likely be an order from the Department of Homeland Security sent to CBP headquarters before it is sent to CBP officials in New York.

    This is actually Cuomo's fault and the DHS isn't wrong on this one (assuming I'm understanding the process correctly). The NYS Green Light Law added a provision barring certain agencies from accessing DMV data. My understanding is that for programs like NEXUS that data is necessary for the vetting process.

    I'm sure they just need the Secretary of DHS to sign off on something.

    Oh wait, we still don't have one of those...

    I read a blurb speculating it would have an effect on day-to-day commerce. New York truckers going to and returning from Canada now have to dance through more hoops at the border which will mean time wasted.

    Won't effect existing users but people can apply it re-apply until they sort it out.

    The Wall Street Journal: Breaking: Justice Department sues California, New Jersey and a Washington county over “sanctuary” laws

    Specifically
    The suits target New Jersey’s law limiting the information the state’s law enforcement agents share with ICE officials on unauthorized immigrants living there as well as an executive order passed by King County in Washington—where Seattle is located—that bars its airport from being used for deportation flights. Two weeks ago, the government sued California over a new state law banning for-profit immigration detention centers.

    Native American burial sites have been blown up by construction crews building the US-Mexico border wall, says a lawmaker and tribal leaders.

    Authorities confirmed that "controlled blasting" has begun at Arizona's Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, a Unesco recognised natural reserve.

    Raul Grijalva, a Democratic congressman, called the destruction "sacrilegious".

    The government failed to consult the Tohono O'odham Nation, he said.

    Environmental groups also warn of the damage being done to the local underground aquifer, as well as to migrating wildlife in the remote desert region about 115 miles (185km) west of Tucson.

    Officials say the aim of the project is to construct a 30ft-tall (9m) steel barrier that runs for 43 miles on the national park land.

    Disgraceful. :sad:

    For just 43 miles. On an area of land that is already under supervision and surveillance.

    The dumbest shit, done in the dumbest way possible.

    Wasn't there an episode where a villain literally tied people to chairs and funneled toxic sludge down their throats at his "seafood restaurant"? Just saying.

    ...but yeah, the worst thing in the dumbest way.

    What makes me especially furious about stuff like this is that the damage is irreversible. You can't un-destroy a monument or un-poison the groundwater. Same with logging/mineral extraction in national parks; same with building oil pipelines in sensitive areas. It's people choosing to destroy precious natural and cultural sites that cannot be replaced, purely for convenience or short-term gain, and treating that decision with exactly none of the gravity it deserves. Looking at "nature" as nothing more than an annoying green substance that's blocking your construction site.

    It was more like he was threatening to make them eat toxic-tainted seafood harvested from polluted waters, but yeah. And that wasn't even the worst thing they showed- Captain Planet could be very, very freaking heavy when it wanted to be (they did have episodes on puppy mills, for example- if you'll excuse me, I think I'm going to go hug my cats...)

    But yeah, it's just business as usual. And his people will cheer it because it means they get to screw someone they blame for why their lives are absolute shit instead of the actual reasons their lives are shit (themselves).

    Yup, Trump's base will cheer even if it means deep fiscal cuts to federal social programs that help poor whites too. Because it's the bucket of crabs analogy that The Boondocks cartoon made, applied to real life, and they're too stupid to realize it.

    I feel like it'd almost have to be animated. An effects heavy show like that would probably be quite an undertaking in live action, and cheaping out on said effects would just draw mockery.

    Alternatively, go full edgelord and make a dark/gritty version, like that 'mature' Power Rangers short video thing (mini-movie? I dunno, it was like 10 minutes long) that came out a while back.

    First they came for the Muslims, and we said NOT TODAY, MOTHERFUCKER!

    One of the few properties where grimdark reboot would be appropriate. Imagine a Captain Planet, a literal avatar of the world, who sees that things are worsening, attempts at improvement are few, and there's no will to make things better. Oh, and the kids are Millennials who don't have any hope for a better world, with Heart especially transmitting that deep despair to the Captain.

    Dude would rack up a body count beyond compare.

    Somebody pitch this to CW.

    We got a live-action Captain Planet a few years ago.



    It's the exact tone needed.

    I remember a game run every year at my local tabletop convention based on this- only they cast the five heroes as, well...
    Kwame is a child soldier, from an African country constantly at war, having seen more atrocities before his 14th birthday than most people do in their lives. Wheeler is a full-blown gang member in good standing, with a bodycount and a habit. Linka is portrayed as a Russian child prostitute, having been born into the business. Gi is one of an indigenous tribe of people being pushed out of their homeland by a government seeking to exploit the natural resources on their lands. Ma-Ti lives in the barrio of Rio de Janerio, living on the scraps of society and doing whatever he can to survive. The goal of the game? Try to make an idealized, better world while fighting enemies and your own fears and experiences and neuroses so you don't end up destroying the world yourselves because of your own views. Oh, and survive each other until the end of the game- there's been at least three instances of PvP, I think.

    I don't think the game's ever been 'won'...

    But to get back on topic, it just feels like they're doing it just to fulfill a campaign promise to build his stupid wall. I've always compared the Republican party to a suicide black Magic: the Gathering deck (will sacrifice everything down to the last point of life to kill the opponent), and this proves it. Yes, the land is already patrolled, but baby needs his wa-wa to show how big and strong and manly he is, and they think only some libtard would protest at blowing up some old stone things that they know nothing about.

    Trump is moving some billions more over from the military budget to build America's wall

    The Wall Street Journal:



    This includes re-purposing something like a billion and a half from overseas operations

    Wait, didn't the courts say he couldn't do that already? Or was that a different attempt at "reallocating" government funds?

    Gosh, it turns out there's a whole lot of slack in the military budget.

    Pros: That's over a billion less being spent on murdering kids and families.

    Cons: It's being used on an ineffective, racist monument.

    Also, it's nice to know that the president can just take money out of the military budget. We should do that next time we get a president to fund social programs with the military budget.

    Possibly, but chances are that money was allocated to go to something useful like food or fuel or ammo, and it’s going to cause problems down the line.

    This is Trump after all. I really doubt that any more thought went into it outside of ‘I want my wall‘ and which area of the budget had enough cash to make it happen.

    Shut up, Mr. Burton! You were not brought upon this world to get it!

    Nah, he probably took it out of something nobody in the military needs, like the medical services or retirement.

    The President can do anything if he believes it's in the national interest!

    True. You could cut the VA and pensions all you want and probably be the best kind of correct when you say the people affected aren’t actually in the military.

    3 years time. The headlines

    "Outpost overrun by insurgents. Troops blame lack of budget for arms, fortifications. President Sanders slammed by conservatives."

    If it's the same as what I remember reading the last time, they were construction funds for maintenance and repair at various bases and troop housing.

    If our troops want bases or housing they should take it from the enemy!

    By it, I meant actual buildings, but we're already selling their services to other countries so they might as well get paid through banditry
