On Thanksgiving, Trump praises troops:

‘We’re really winning’

By Jenna Johnson and David Nakamura November 23 at 9:58 AM  …….PALM BEACH, Fla. — President Trump marked the Thanksgiving holiday by paying tribute to U.S. troops in Afghanistan, Iraq and elsewhere in the Middle East, telling them “we’re really winning” because his administration has given them a greater ability to succeed.

 

“I’m letting you do your job,” Trump said to the troops in a video call from Mar-a-Lago, his lavish resort here where he is spending the holiday

The U.S. Navy Is Poisoning Local Water Supplies Across the Nation With Toxic Chemicals

In hundreds of towns across America, citizens are becoming collateral damage.

By Dahr Jamail / Truthout…….November 22, 2017, 12:00 PM GMT…….Washington State’s Whidbey Island already has problems with inadequate water supplies. Located in Puget Sound, the residents have to face a long, dry summer with no aquifer replenishment and ongoing threats of saltwater intrusion.

 

But now they have to deal with the U.S. Navy introducing toxic chemicals into Whidbey Island’s public and private wells, particularly in the area around the small town of Coupeville, where the Navy maintains a heavily used airstrip to practice touch-and-go landings, among other exercises.

Cate Andrews is a member of Citizens for Ebeys Reserve (COER), a group of locals working to protect their land, homes and health from environmental and sound pollution from the U.S. Navy. Andrews said some of the wells in Coupeville contain toxic chemicals from the Navy’s firefighting foam exercises at levels 400 percent over what the Ault Field in Oak Harbor, the latter of which is at Naval Air Station Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) considers acceptable.

"Residents are being provided bottled water by the Navy, but warned not to drink, cook or water their vegetable gardens," Andrews told Truthout. "The Navy says, ‘Don’t worry about showering,’ but research has shown that these chemicals are transmitted through dermal absorption. Homes valued at over $1 million are unsalable, and people are trapped."

The chemicals, Perfluorohexanesulfonic acid (PFHxS) and Perfluoroheptanoic acid (PFHpA), are perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs), also called PFCs, and come from the AFFF firefighting foam used in training exercises at the Navy’s Outlying Landing Field (OLF) in Coupeville and Whidbey.

Congress Has A Sexual Harassment Problem​

After weeks of stories detailing dozens of sexual harassment incidents on Capitol Hill ― most involving unnamed lawmakers ― two things are clear: Congress has an abuse problem, and Congress is not sufficiently dealing with it.

House lawmakers recently held a hearing on the issue, leading to some female members saying they’re aware of current House colleagues who have sexually harassed staffers. Rep. Barbara Comstock (R-Va.) told of a member having a female staffer bring work materials to his residence, answering the door in a towel, and then exposing himself.

In response to the flood of these types of stories, House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) has mandated that members and staffers go through harassment training.

But this online course, which consists of a 22-minute video and quiz that HuffPost watched, hardly addresses the issue. In some cases, the quiz has led staffers to, in the words of one female Hill employee, “second guess” what is sexual harassment.

“It can end up doing more harm than good, making victims feel like what’s happening to them isn’t enough to report,” said this staffer, who shared her own story of feeling pressured to sleep with a more senior aide who once drunkenly walked her home when she was an intern. (She declined.)

The staffer also said she believed the video had the unintended consequence of teaching people how to “walk the line” of sexual harassment ― to hit on fellow staffers while not completely crossing into a legally precarious position.
