In addition, "an internal review by Wells Fargo found that about 20,000 of those [car insurance] customers may have defaulted on their car loans and had their vehicles repossessed in part because of those unnecessary insurance costs." Wells Fargo was also fined $185 million in 2016 for "secretly opening unauthorized deposit and credit card accounts."

On Tuesday April 3, 2018 the Trump Administration announced a 25% tariff on approximately 1,300 different Chinese products, focusing mostly on technology and machinery.  The total dollar amount of products affected by the tariffs is approximately $50 billion each year. "The administration will hold a public hearing on the submissions on May 15 in Washington, and companies will have until May 22 to file final objections." In response to these tariffs of Chinese products, "China issued a list of tariffs against $50 billion in U.S. goods, including soybeans and small aircraft."

The "only exceptions are if a fetus has health problems making it 'incompatible with life' outside of the womb at full term, or if a pregnant woman's life or a 'major bodily function' is threatened by pregnancy. Pregnancies resulting from rape and incest aren't exempted." The bill was blocked by a Federal judge the next day.  "The judge’s ruling blocks the measure for 10 days, while he considers arguments on whether to stop the law from taking effect until the outcome of a full legal challenge." "State law previously banned abortion at 20 weeks after conception, in line with limits in 17 other states."

They were intended to ensure a free and open internet, give consumers equal access to web content and prevent broadband service providers from favoring their own content." "Some consumer groups fear that without the rules, Internet providers could begin charging some websites or services more to reach their customers...they also say Internet providers could artificially speed up services they own or have special relationships with, to the detriment of start-ups and small businesses." Comments about the process submitted to the FCC have been questionable as well.  An FCC spokesperson noted that "7.5 million comments filed in favor of the regulations that appeared to come from 45,000 distinct email addresses, 'all generated by a single fake e-mail generator website.' Some 400,000 comments backing the rules, he said, appeared to originate from a mailing address based in Russia."

This guidance also prohibits the federal government from interfering with "the autonomy of a religious organization" and also from favoring or targeting any "particular religious groups." This guidance also allows a person, group, or organization to refuse services or protections to another person, group, or organization based on religious values. For example, the Federal Department of Health and Human Services has immediately issued two rules that exempt healthcare providers and insurance companies from "providing an otherwise mandated item to which they object on the basis of their religious beliefs or moral convictions." In other words, healthcare providers and insurance companies will now be allowed to "deny women insurance coverage for contraception" or related care and procedures based on this religious belief exemption, even if the patient does not share those same beliefs. As another example, "clerks with the Social Security Administration or the Department of Veterans Affairs who do not agree with same-sex marriage could refuse, under this guidance, to process paperwork to provide benefits to a widow in a same-sex marriage."     [post_title] => Attorney General Jeff Sessions Issues Religious Liberty Protections Guidance Allowing Religious Exemptions From Federal Law; Guidance Possibly Limits Protection From Discrimination Against Women And LGBT Individuals [post_excerpt] => [post_status] => publish [comment_status] => closed [ping_status] => closed [post_password] => [post_name] => attorney-general-jeff-sessions-issues-religious-liberty-protections-guidance-allowing-religious-exemptions-federal-law-guidance-possibly-limits-protection-discrimination-women-l [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2017-10-07 16:23:16 [post_modified_gmt] => 2017-10-07 16:23:16 [post_content_filtered] => [post_parent] => 0 [guid] => http://factualuprising.com/?p=2383 [menu_order] => 0 [post_type] => post [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw ) [9] => WP_Post Object ( [ID] => 2331 [post_author] => 1 [post_date] => 2017-09-01 02:21:18 [post_date_gmt] => 2017-09-01 02:21:18 [post_content] => "Attorney General Jeff Sessions sent a memo Thursday [February 23, 2017] to the Bureau of Prisons rescinding the Obama administration's Aug. 16 order advising the bureau not to renew any contracts with private prisons."

In August of 2016, the Justice Department declared it would end use of private prisons because they are less safe, provide lower levels of service, and are not cost effective. The Justice Department also released a report noting "privately operated facilities incurred more safety and security incidents than those run by the federal Bureau of Prisons. The private facilities, for example, had higher rates of assaults — both by inmates on other inmates and by inmates on staff — and had eight times as many contraband cellphones confiscated each year on average."
