A: POSSIBLY TRUE AND IMPORTANT
That is precisely what the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals did on Tuesday, permitting Ohio to defund Planned Parenthood by proclaiming that there is no “Fourteenth Amendment right to perform abortions.” The court’s threadbare reasoning ignores controlling Supreme Court precedent and disregards the impact of Ohio’s crusade against abortion providers on women. But that doesn’t matter to the majority, which includes all four President Donald Trump appointees who participated in the case.

B: POSSIBLY TRUE, IMPACT UNCERTAIN
The Trump administration is seeking to close nearly two dozen U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services field offices around the world in a move it estimates would save millions per year. But critics argue the closures will further slow refugee processing, family reunification petitions and military citizenship applications.
Pilots complaints on Boeing Max uncovered
Dallas Morning News
DALLAS — Pilots repeatedly voiced safety concerns about the Boeing 737 Max 8 to federal authorities, with one captain calling the flight manual “inadequate and almost criminally insufficient” several months before Sunday’s Ethiopian Airlines crash that killed 157 people, an investigation by the Dallas Morning News found.
The Morning News found at least five complaints about the Boeing model in a federal database where pilots can voluntarily report about aviation incidents without fear of repercussions.
The disclosures found by the Morning News reference problems with an autopilot system during takeoff and nose-down situations while trying to gain altitude during flights of Boeing 737 Max 8s.
But here’s the thing: the whole system is “rigged” in favor of more affluent parents. It is true that the conversion of wealth into a desirable college seat was especially egregious in this case – to the extent that it was actually illegal.

The goal is to offer candidates job interviews that are free from any of the unconscious biases that managers and recruiters can often bring to the hiring process, while still making the experience “seem human”.

“Get rid of my kids; get them back to New York,” Trump told John Kelly, then his newly installed chief of staff, according to Vicky Ward’s Kushner Inc. Ward’s book will be published next week and, she writes, is based on some 220 interviews — most of them anonymous. (Hmm.)
Ward writes that Trump felt his kids “didn’t know how to play the game,” referring to what he saw as inept attempts at public relations, inevitably resulting in negative headlines.
‘May God be with us. Can we come back?’ says pilot.
“We can promise you nothing will happen to our jaguar. She’s a wild animal and there were proper barriers in place to keep our guests safe- not a wild animals fault when barriers are crossed,” zoo officials said.
Li Yang, who took a selfie with U. S. President Donald Trump at his annual Super Bowl party, owned a massage parlor that would later become Orchids of Asia, where Robert Kraft allegedly solicited prostitution.
Yang sold the business to a new owner in 2012 and has been implicated in none of the alleged crimes associated with the current business.
