The Lead: Shooting Down UFO's

What is with all the shooting down of objects out of the sky this weekend? 

On Sunday, Michigan Congressman Jack Bergman said on Twitter that “the US military has decommissioned another ‘object’ over Lake Huron.” 

The object was reported to be shaped like an octagon and was at an altitude of 20,000 feet just 14 miles from the Canadian border. CNN reports that it had strings hanging off of it. Strings? 

Also on Sunday, Chinese state media the Global Times said this on Twitter: “Local maritime authorities in East China's Shandong Province announced on Sunday that they had spotted an unidentified flying object in waters near the coastal city of Rizhao in the province and were preparing to shoot it down, reminding fishermen to be safe via messages.” 

On Saturday, Canadian Prime Minster Justin Trudeau also took to Twitter to say that he had “ordered the take down of an unidentified object that violated Canadian airspace. @NORADCommand shot down the object over the Yukon. Canadian and U.S. aircraft were scrambled, and a U.S. F-22 successfully fired at the object.” 

All of this shoot-first-ask-questions-later! What if they come in peace?

Foul Play in Turkish Earthquake?

Turkey has moved quickly to hold architects and building contractors responsible for the destruction that occurred during last week’s earthquake, which has now claimed over 30,000 lives. At least 130 people have been arrested or warrants issued for their arrest in connection to the buildings. 

The New York Post reports that in Turkey, earthquake codes were rarely enforced and some say that this helped turn the dangerous situation so deadly. At least three contractors were caught at the airport. 

Turkey announced the Earthquake Crimes Investigation, a government bureau that will have its hands full trying to figure out how much of this tragedy can be blamed on human oversight. 

Syria is also suffering terribly with death and devastation but no Western nation has lifted sanctions to help.

You Have The Right To Remain Lying

Liar, Liar credit: giphy

North Carolina cannot ban politicians from lying. We’d all like them not to but, according to a recent court ruling, lying is a first amendment right. 

In a court case, a political candidate was about to be prosecuted for a misleading attack on an opponent. He sued and a court sided with him, at least temporarily. The judge found that the law that he was about to be prosecuted under was likely unconstitutional because it would have “chilling effects on truthful speech during political campaigns.” 

So it is up to us to figure out if they’re lying. We can’t outlaw it

Mouse House Politics

Walt Disney World will now have to apply for permits and answer to the state in Florida like all other businesses. They used to be able to skip all of that with their Reedy Creek Improvement District, where they had self-governance but they crossed Governor Ron DeSantis and he put an end to that.

This had to do with Ron DeSantis’ education bill. Many pressured Disney to get involved and speak out against it and when they did, DeSantis decided to strike back and revoke the special privileges that Disney had enjoyed for decades. 

Disney issued a statement saying that they will play well with others now that they have no choice.
