-Lurid Crime Tales-
AG Lynch says she cannot make 'prediction' about timing of Clinton probe
[Fox] Attorney General Loretta Lynch said Monday she could not make any "prediction" about the timing of a final resolution to the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

Asked at a news conference if the clock had run out against taking action against Clinton in light of the advanced election schedule, Lynch replied, "We do all our reviews, investigations of any matter carefully, thoroughly, and efficiently. And when the matter is ready for resolution, a recommendation will be made and we'll come to a decision at that time and I'm not able to give you a prediction. Sorry."

Lynch had called the press briefing to discuss a DOJ suit against North Carolina ‐ which the department brought quickly, in less than two months - over its transgender bathroom law. The state is also suing the DOJ over the issue.

[CHICAGO.SUNTIMES] Eight people -- including a 16-year-old boy -- were killed and at least 39 other people were maimed in shootings across reliably Democrat Chicago, aka The Windy City or Mobtown

He was taken to Stroger Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
He's dead, Jim!
at 4 p.m., authorities said. He lived in the 4700 block of West Gladys.

A couple hours earlier, another West Side shooting left one man dead and a woman injured in the West Garfield Park neighborhood.

Deshawn Thompson, 20, and a 19-year-old woman were sitting on a porch just before 1 p.m. in the 200 block of South Karlov when someone walked up and opened fire, authorities aid.

Thompson was shot multiple times and taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
He's dead, Jim!
at 5:45 p.m., authorities said. He lived in the same block as the shooting.

The woman suffered a graze wound to the back and was also taken to Mount Sinai, where she was listed in good condition Sunday, police said.

-Short Attention Span Theater-
Captain America’s ‘heterosexual virility’ lamented by Vanity Fair
[WASHINGTONTIMES] Vanity Fair has weighed in on the blockbuster movie "Captain America: Civil War" to lament the hero’s "heterosexual virility."
Is the objection to heterosexuality or virility?
Perhaps we need the pic of the fainting couch...
Marvel Studios and Disney’s latest installment wowed audiences in North America to the tune of $181 million last weekend, but Vanity Fair writer Joanna Robinson
You could search Ms. Robinson on Google, and her resume is every bit what you'd expect...
left the theater disappointed. Her reason: Chris Evans’ character, super soldier Captain America, got nostalgic for his "skirt-chasing" days with best friend "Bucky" Barnes.

Britain
Whites Need Not Apply: BBC Advertises 'Black, Asian, Or Minority'- Only Positions
[Breitbart] A range of British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) television departments, programmes, and radio stations are currently offering highly desirable, paid internships, but white people are prohibited from applying.

Creative Access - an organisation, registered as a charity, which offers placements at "many of the UK's top media organisations" - has listed a number of BBC placements on its website, demanding applicants are only from "Black, Asian and non-white minority ethnic backgrounds".

The website's list of opportunities shows that all but four of the positions currently available are for jobs at the publicly-funded BBC, and Creative Access is funded by the British tax payer despite its charity status.

Caribbean-Latin America
Acting speaker of Brazil lower house annuls Rousseff impeachment
The acting speaker of the lower house of Brazil's Congress annulled the impeachment process against President Dilma Rousseff on May 9 and called for a new vote in the chamber.
The fix is in...
Waldir Maranhao, who took over as acting speaker last week, said there were procedural flaws in the April 17 vote in the chamber that accepted impeachment charges against Rousseff.
"What was the flaw?"
"They succeeded in impeaching her!"
After last month's lower house vote, the impeachment process was passed to the Senate, where a Senate committee recommended on May 6 that the leftist president be put on trial by the full chamber for breaking budget laws.

In a news release, Maranhao said the impeachment process should be returned by the Senate so that the lower house can vote again. It remained unclear whether his decision could be overruled by the Supreme Court, the Senate or a majority in the house.
The Senate could ignore her and just carry on...
Brazilian markets fell sharply after the surprising decision was announced.

The full Senate had been expected to vote to put Rousseff on trial on May 11, which would immediately suspend her for the duration of a trial that could last six months. During that period, Vice President Michel Temer would replace her as acting president.

'El Chapo' Extradition To U.S. May Proceed, Mexican Judge Says
[NPR.ORG] Two days after drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzmán was transferred to a prison near Juárez, a Mexican city near the U.S. border, a federal judge in Mexico said the extradition process can move forward.

An unnamed judge said the "legal requirements laid out in the extradition treaty" between the U.S. and Mexico had been met, The News Agency that Dare Not be Named reports, adding that Mexico's foreign ministry has 20 days to approve the extradition.

NPR's Carrie Kahn reported in January that Guzmán had been "indicted on drug and arms trafficking, money laundering and murder charges in at least six U.S. states." In July 2015, Guzmán he beat feet from Mexico's supermax Altiplano prison through a mile-long tunnel. He was recaptured in January.

But the judge's go-ahead for extradition is one step in what could still be a lengthy process. Lawyers for Guzman can still try to block or delay any attempts to extradite the infamous leader of the Sinaloa cartel.

As the Two-Way has reported, the head of Mexico's extradition office, Miguel Merino, warned in January that Guzmán's legal team could pursue various appeals that could delay the drug kingpin's extradition for four to six years.

Europe
European artists celebrate Islamist terrorism
A Copenhagen art exhibit planning to portray two of the Brussels suicide bombers and one of the Paris Bataclan attackers as "martyrs" has been reported to police for encouraging terrorism.

A Danish group of artists plans to include brothers Ibrahim and Khalid el-Bakraoui, who detonated bombs in the deadly Brussels attacks on 22 March, and Foued Mohamed-Aggad, who blew himself up at Paris music venue Bataclan on 14 November. Images of the "martyrs", replicas of their belongings and plaques to explain who they are will adorn the artistic exhibition, which will be on display from May 26 until June 10 in a former abattoir in Copenhagen's trendy Meatpacking District.
An interesting choice of venue

Hildebeest Super PAC Creates Paid Troll Army to Counter Online Attacks
[LA Times] When the Internet’s legions of Hillary hecklers steal away to chat rooms and Facebook pages to vent grievances about Clinton, express revulsion toward Clinton and launch attacks on Clinton, they now may find themselves in a surprising place ‐ confronted by a multimillion dollar super PAC working with Clinton.

Hillary Clinton's well-heeled backers have opened a new frontier in digital campaigning, one that seems to have been inspired by some of the Internet's worst instincts. Correct the Record, a super PAC coordinating with Clinton's campaign, is spending some $1 million to find and confront social media users who post unflattering messages about the Democratic front-runner.

In effect, the effort aims to spend a large sum of money to increase the amount of trolling that already exists online.

The plan comes as Clinton operatives grapple with the reality that her supporters just aren’t as engaged and aggressive online as are her detractors inside and outside the Democratic Party.

The lack of engagement is one of Clinton’s bigger tactical vulnerabilities, particularly when compared with rivals like Donald Trump, whose viral social media attacks are legion, and Sen. Bernie Sanders, who is backed by a passionate army of media-savvy millennials.

Some experts on digital campaigns think the idea of launching a paid army of "former reporters, bloggers, public affairs specialists, designers" and others to produce online counterattacks is unlikely to prove successful. Others, however, say Clinton has little choice but to try, given the ubiquity of online assaults and the difficulty of squelching even provably untrue narratives once they have taken hold.

Rush just solved NC bathroom dispute with Feds
[Daily Caller] To counter the Obama Department of Justice suit regarding transgender bathrooms in North Carolina, Rush Limbaugh suggested that the state should no longer identify as North Carolina for the duration of the suit.

Monday on "The Rush Limbaugh Show," Limbaugh, noting that the DOJ gave the state of North Carolina three days to "throw that bill out," said that "If the DOJ gets their way, every business 15 employees or more, is gonna have to have unisex bathrooms and anybody can go into whatever bathroom they want depending how they want to identify or want to present that day."

"The solution here might be that the North Carolina governor could say that we don’t identify as North Carolina anymore, and therefore your lawsuit against us is irrelevant," Limbaugh suggested. "’We’re not North Carolina. We don’t identify that way, as long as your lawsuit [is in effect].'"
