Immigrant Mom Loses Effort to Regain Son Given to US Parents – ABC News Child theft with US Judge’s help! Inhumane and child theft!

In a controversial case that involved the rights of illegal immigrants and their young children, a Guatemalan mother lost her effort today to get back the five-year old son who was taken away from her after her arrest on immigration charges and put up for adoption in Missouri despite her objections. A Missouri judge ruled the boy should stay with the Missouri couple, Melinda and Seth Moser, who took him into their home five years ago while his mother was in federal custody, where she attempted in vain to oppose the adoption proceedings.

T-Mobile Hires Corey Lewandowski to Help Sell Merger to Trump – Everything is for sale – including competition, jobs, democracy…

T-Mobile has hired former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski to help the company gain regulatory approval for its $23 billion merger with Sprint. The looming merger has been blocked several times by regulators already because it would not only eliminate anywhere from 10 to 30,000 jobs but would dramatically reduce incentive for the remaning three large wireless carriers to seriously compete on price. As with most megamergers, the CEOs for Sprint and T-Mobile have spent the last few weeks trying to claim the exact opposite.

Trump and May have one thing in common: they are incapable of reason | Polly Toynbee | Opinion | The Guardian

As home secretary, Theresa May introduced an irrational, random cap of 1,600 tier 2 skilled visas a month, regardless of how urgently skills are needed. Start with the NHS, in obvious crisis, where 100,000 posts are unfilled. Why bar 1,518 doctors? Brexit is causing what the Royal College of Nursing calls a haemorrhage of nurses; more are leaving than joining, with new arrivals denied visas. Whatever your view of intractable anti-immigration politics, I can find no pollster who finds the public against recruiting doctors and other highly skilled people to add to the UK talent pool. This is a bee in May’s bonnet alone. What is she thinking? Her visa cap inflicts maximum harm in engineering, IT and all the industries Brexiters claim we will sell around the world. Recruitment to high-powered jobs of people from outside the EU is rising sharply, because the Brexit vote is deterring EU applicants.

In Rebuke of Trump, Tillerson Says Lies Are a Threat to Democracy – The New York Times

“If our leaders seek to conceal the truth, or we as people become accepting of alternative realities that are no longer grounded in facts, then we as American citizens are on a pathway to relinquishing our freedom,” he said in a commencement address at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va. Even small falsehoods and exaggerations are problematic, Mr. Tillerson said. (Mr. Trump is prone to both.) “When we as people, a free people, go wobbly on the truth even on what may seem the most trivial matters, we go wobbly on America,” Mr. Tillerson said.

Regarding the Post’s story on Kelly, Baquet said “every one of those deeply reported inside stories about the White House from the Times or the Post have all been verified. When [former Trump strategist] Steve Bannon talked about life inside the White House, when he left the White House, he verified them. [Former chief of staff] Reince Priebus came out, he verified them.

“This stuff so far is all held up.”

Baquet also said the Times and the Post would continue to “fight to the death on daily stories… [because] it’s healthy for the countries to have institutions fighting to the death. But we believe in the same principles. And I will defend them on these principles and they will defend me on these principles.”
