1…………>  Forbidden Photos: US Government

During the Great Depression in the 1930s, a US government agency led a propaganda campaign that has only recently been uncovered.

The Whitechapel Gallery in London has dedicated an exhibition to these photographs titled Killed Negatives.





2…………> AG Deputy Rosenstein: US House 

Chairman Goodlatte, Ranking Member Nadler, and members of the Committee, I always welcome the opportunity to appear before this distinguished committee, but this is not a happy occasion.

Federal Bureau of Investigation employees deviated from important principles in 2016 and 2017. Everyone knew about some of the departures when they occurred – such as discussing criminal investigations and encroaching on prosecutorial decisions. We learned about others through an internal investigation – such as leaking to the news media and exhibiting political bias.

We need to correct errors, hold wrongdoers accountable, and deter future violations. Director Wray will describe what the FBI is doing to accomplish those goals. At the Department of Justice, our mandatory annual training will include lessons from the Inspector General’s report, and we are considering other recommendations.

We already revised the Department’s confidentiality policies to emphasize that “non-public, sensitive information obtained in connection with [our] work is protected from disclosure.” We intend to enforce that principle for our employees, and we need to demonstrate respect for it ourselves by protecting sensitive information entrusted to the FBI.




3…………> Trump, Putin Lunch: July 16th 


US President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin will meet on July 16 in Helsinki, according to the Kremlin and the White House. 

The meeting will be the first official summit between the two leaders that will be closely watched by nervous US allies in Europe and critics of Russia in America. 

The two countries announced the details simultaneously a day after striking a deal on holding the meeting following a visit to Moscow on Wednesday by US national security adviser John Bolton. 

“The two leaders will discuss relations between the United States and Russia and a range of national security issues,” the White House said in a statement.

A number of flights between Australia and Bali have been canceled after the Mount Agung volcano began spewing water vapor and ash a mile up into the air. 
Key points: 

“Due to a volcanic ash cloud caused by Mount Agung in Bali, it is currently not safe to operate flights to or from Denpasar Airport,” the statement said. 

The canceled Jetstar flights include routes between Denpasar and Sydney, Perth, Melbourne, Adelaide, and Cairns.

They added that senior pilots will be assessing the situation overnight and provide an update by 9:00 am Friday.




5…………> Life On Enceladus: Organics Detected 

An international spacecraft has discovered complex organic molecules originating from an icy moon orbiting the planet of Saturn, detected by the Cassini spacecraft after they were ejected in ice grains through cracks in Enceladus’ icy shell.

“It is the first-ever detection of complex organics coming from an extraterrestrial water world,” they said.

Cassini previously flew near to Enceladus in 2005 and discovered lighter organic molecules. Larger molecules like those recently detected are created by chemical processes that could support life, according to the European Space Agency (ESA).
