The Republican-led Arizona state Senate passed a bill on Wednesday that would permit the government to seize protesters’ assets and prosecute them under a racketeering law designed to target organized crime. If the measure passes in the GOP-controlled state House and is signed into law, protesting in Arizona would be on par with terrorism. There’s no evidence of any paid protest movement. The legislation is written in a way that would allow protesters to be charged ― even if they don’t do anything. As the Arizona Capitol Times reports, racketeering laws permit police to arrest people for planning to commit a crime ― before anything has actually happened.
Prosecutors on Thursday charged a 51-year-old man with murder and attempted murder after he allegedly started shooting in a crowded suburban Kansas City bar, killing one man and injuring two others, in an attack that some witnesses said was racially motivated. Alok Madasani, 32, and Ian Grillot, 24, were hospitalized and are in stable condition, they said. The Linked-in accounts for Kuchibhotla and Madasani say that they were engineers working at GPS-maker Garmin and had studied in India. "From what I understand when he was throwing racial slurs at the two gentlemen (Kuchibhotla and Madasani), Ian (Grillot) stood up for them," Bohnen said. The bar where the shooting took place was closed Thursday, with a sign in the door that said it would remain closed indefinitely.

Ted Cruz anticipates another vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court will arise in a matter of months. “I think we’ll have another Supreme Court vacancy this summer,” Cruz said at the Conservative Political Action Conference Thursday. “If that happens, as much as the left is crazy now, they will go full Armageddon meltdown because the next vacancy is where we’ll have the ability to act and restore basic constitution protections.”READ THE FULL STORY AT THE DAILY CALLER!

Waymo on Thursday filed a suit against Uber and its Otto self-driving tech unit in federal court in San Francisco, claiming the ride-hailing giant stole its patents and trade secrets. The company learned of this after a supplier to Waymo sent it images of a LiDAR circuit board, presumably from Uber, that resembled its own. Using a Google-issued laptop, “he downloaded 9.7 GB of Waymo’s highly confidential files and trade secrets, including blueprints, design files and testing documentation. Months before the mass download of files, Mr. Levandowski told colleagues that he had plans to “replicate” Waymo’s technology at a competitor. “Our parent company Alphabet has long worked with Uber in many areas, and we didn’t make this decision lightly,” Waymo said.
Google parent Alphabet Inc.’s heated rivalry with Uber Technologies Inc. over self-driving cars has spilled into the courthouse, after the internet giant sued the ride-hailing company for allegedly stealing trade secrets to jump-start its own autonomous vehicle program. Anthony Levandowski, a former key manager in the Google self-driving car project, is accused of secretly downloading 14,000 files before departing Alphabet last year...

Nine U.S. House members are on the roster of speakers. Nor is Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), who famously presented a colleague with a gun at CPAC in 2014.

Cohn likes to book his hotels online at the last minute, sometimes while he’s idling in the parking lot. He flies back-of-the-bus coach religiously, purposefully picking the least expensive routes and flight times while he’s crisscrossing the country. None of this befits the bespoke image of one of America’s hottest new winemakers, whose Bellacosa Cabernet Sauvignon recently snagged some of the wine world’s most coveted “Best Of” ratings last year—barely 16 months after Cohn launched his new namesake brand Daniel Cohn Wine Company in October 2015. “They think selling wine means hanging around all day pouring glasses and eating steak and oysters every night. If anyone only knew that I’m shacking up at the local HoJos right now and throwing back a $2 burrito.

You’re at the office and everything is normal... Until you get up during a meeting to give a presentation and you realize you are totally naked. Most psychologists agree it probably doesn’t represent a literal desire to be naked in public, but more likely is related to being embarrassed about something about yourself that other people don’t know about you. But neuroscientists and psychologists are convinced that, apart from meaning, dreams serve an important role in maintaining our mental and emotional health. And a pivotal study from 1960 from the “father of sleep medicine” William Dement, professor emeritus of psychology and sleep medicine at Stanford University’s Center for Sleep Sciences and Medicine, documented the detrimental effects of not dreaming. Watch The Telegraph’s video above to hear psychologist and dream analyst Ian Wallace’s interpretation of what it means to dream about being naked in public.
Prosecutors on Thursday charged a 51-year-old man with murder and attempted murder after they say he opened fire in a crowded suburban Kansas City bar, killing one man and injuring two others, but authorities declined to say whether the attack was racially motivated. The Kansas City Star, citing witnesses, reported that the suspect uttered racial slurs and yelled “get out of my country” before he opened fire. The Linked-in accounts for Kuchibhotla and Madasani say they were engineers working at GPS-maker Garmin, and that they had studied in India. Bartender Garret Bohnen told the Kansas City Star that Kuchibhotla and Madasani stopped at Austins for a drink once or twice a week. “From what I understand, when he was throwing racial slurs at the two gentlemen [Kuchibhotla and Madasani], Ian [Grillot] stood up for them,” Bohnen said.
White House press secretary Sean Spicer suggested during a press conference Thursday that the federal government may crack down on states that have legalized recreational marijuana. Spicer explained that President Donald Trump sees the legalization of medical and recreational marijuana as two distinct issues. When it comes to medical marijuana, Spicer indicated that the president understands the importance of the drug’s availability, especially to those facing terminal diseases. But when it comes to recreational use, Spicer had a very different take, connecting recreational marijuana use to the opioid crisis currently ravaging the nation. When asked if the federal government will take action around recreational marijuana, Spicer said, “That’s a question for the Department of Justice.
