Cómo denunciar a un usuario en ML

Antes que nada debes saber que las políticas de Mercado Libre en protección a sus usuarios son un asco. No te hagas muchas esperanzas de que solucionarán tu problema.

Primeramente, Mercado Libre NO CUENTA CON TELÉFONOS Y NI CORREO DE ATENCIÓN AL CLIENTE. Por más que los busques en la página no los encontrarás. Para hacer algún tipo de reclamación o denuncia lo tienes que hacer directamente en la página.

Mercado Libre, o sus empleaduchos se comunican únicamente vía correo electrónico, con la cuenta  crm.ml@mercadolibre.com.mx, sin embargo si les mandas un correo sin un número de aclaración, te enviarán un mensaje de que tu denuncia no puede ser atendida y que tienes que abrir el caso directamente en la página.

Antes de hacer una denuncia, ten en cuenta lo siguiente:

1. Considera tiempos de envío establecidos en la publicación. Siempre pide el código de rastreo o número de guía de tu envío, ya sea por paquetería (Estafeta, Multipack, Redpack, Aeroflash, UPS, Fedex, DHL) o por Correo (Correo Registrado/Certificado, Mexpost) y RASTRÉALO EN INTERNET. No esperes a que el vendedor esté al tanto de tu envío. La mayoría no lo hace. Revisa diariamente el estatus de tu paquete y ante cualquier cosa extraña o inusual, CONTACTA AL VENDEDOR DE INMEDIATO.

2. Asegúrate de haber agotado todas las formas de comunicación con tu contraparte: teléfono fijo, celular, correo electrónico, etc.

Hay algunos vendedores que son muy profesionales y te contestan rápidamente y hay otros que son vendedores eventuales o no saben mucho o no se comprometen con sus ventas y pueden tardar en contestar. En cuanto a los compradores, usualmente los nuevos tardan en comunicarse. De cualquier forma trata por todos los medio de ponerte en contacto con el usuario y resolver el poblema.

3.- Siempre conserva toda la información de la operación, no borres correos. Recibos de pago /envío deben ser guardados hasta que la operación se concrete satisfactoriamente.

4.- Deben de haber pasado al menos 4 días desde que hiciste la compra/venta en el sitio. Es por esta razón que es muy recomendable que pagues dentro de los 3 primeros días hábiles después de haber hecho la compra. Entre más tiempo te tardes en hacer el pago de tu artículo comprado menos posibilidades hay de que se resuelta tu denuncia.

Así pues, las denuncias se hacen como sigue:

Denunciar a un vendedor

a) El primer paso es calificar al vendedor NEGATIVAMENTE. Si a un vendedor lo califican NEGATIVO consecutivamente, las calificaciones aparecerán sin tener que esperar el periodo de 21 días y eso ayudará a alertar a posibles víctimas antes de que sean estafadas.

b) Entra al perfil del usuario (dando click en el seudónimo del vendedor) y verifica que no tenga calificaciones negativas recientes (en las últimas dos semanas). Toma nota de lo que observes. Si es posible haz una captura de la pantalla y guárdala.

b) El siguiente paso es llenar el formulario de denuncia en el siguiente enlace: http://ayuda.mercadolibre.com.mx/contacto

Los datos que necesitas (como seudónimo del vendedor y código del artículo) vienen en el primero correo que ML te envió al hacer la compra:

https://i1.wp.com/thegreylady.webs.com/estafas/correo.jpg

c)En el MENSAJE, explica que:

-tu artículo no ha llegado/llegó dañado*/o el problema que tengas con el vendedor

-ya lo has tratado de contactar y el vendedor no se comunica.

-Si hay algo anormal en sus teléfonos o cuenta de correo, también comunícalo.

-no se te debe pasar mencionar si el usuario ha sido calificado negativamente en los últimos días, ya sea que sí o que no. MENCIÓNALO. Si no tiene negativos puedes poner algo así como “Hasta el día de hoy no tiene ninguna calificación negativa, pero no he podido comunicarme con él.**

Todo esto hazlo con un lenguaje sencillo y claro (recuerda que los que atienden en Mercado Libre son retrasados mentales y hay que explicarles con palitos y bolitas). Una vez hecha la denuncia te darán un número de seguimiento de tu denuncia. Apúntalo y no lo pierdas.

Posiblemente te contesten dentro de los próximos días con un correo estúpido diciendo que te comuniques con el vendedor y que “ellos trabajan arduamente en hacer de ML una comunidad segura”… pura basura. Lo importante es insistir en que el vendedor no está cumpliendo con lo establecido en el sitio.

d) Posteriormente ellos se contactarán con el vendedor donde le darán 72 horas (3 días) para resolver el problema o proporcionar pruebas de que tu artículo ha sido enviado*.

e) Pasado el tiempo, si el vendedor no contesta o comprueba que te envío el artículo, será dado de baja y a ti te deberán regresar tu dinero bajo su programa de protección al comprador. Sigue las instrucciones que te den en los correos que te envíen. Esto es en el mejor de los casos, sin embargo Mercado Libre hará todo lo posible por lavarse las manos y no hacerse responsables del robo (en su caso). Si esto resulta así, pues lamentamos informar que no hay mucho que hacer, pero puedes enviarnos los datos de tu estafador para expornerlo en esta página y esperar que tu experiencia sirva de ejemplo para que otras personas no sean estafadas por esta misma persona. Puedes mandarnos los datos al correo: estafasml@hotmail.com

*Mercado Libre no cubre los casos en que el artículo llegue dañado, no sea como en la descripción que puso el vendedor, o no sea el artículo  que pediste (por ejemplo que te manden un ladrillo en lugar de un autoestéreo). Es por eso que como comprador uno está a merced de la buena voluntad y honestidad del vendedor. Revisa bien la reputación de la persona a la que le vas a comprar. Para tips relacionados con esto consulta nuestra Guía para una compra segura en ML

**La razón de esto es dejar por escrito que al día que tú pones la  denuncia el usuario no tiene malas calificaciones y en caso de que el  vendedor te estafe, el programa de protección al comprador debe amparar  tu compra. Muchas veces pasa que durante la aclaración del caso (que  puede tardar entre dos o tres semanas) al vendedor lo califican mal de  otras operaciones y Mercado Libre se puede lavar las manos de tu asunto diciendo que no puede cubrirlo porque el usuario tenía mala reputación.

Denunciar a un comprador

Como vendedor, estás principalmente expuesto a personas que quieren dañar tu reputación o que te ofertan y no te pagan. Lo que debes de tener en mente es:

NUNCA ENVIAR ARTÍCULOS SIN QUE TE LOS HAYAN PAGADO. Asegúrate que los fondos están en tu cuenta de banco antes de hacer el envío. Hay gente habilidosa en edición de imágenes que pueden mandarte un recibo alterado de un depósito que jamás se efectuó.

Pide a los compradores que te paguen dentro de los 3 a 5 primeros días hábiles después de hacer la compra. Eso evitará que pagues comisiones de venta de artículos que no te han pagado en tus recibos de cobro.

Si alguien no te paga, califica NEGATIVAMENTE. Sí… a veces uno quiere ser buena onda, pero lamentablemente por las políticas laxas del sitio, muchas personas pueden ofertar en tus artículos, dañar tu reputación, echar a perder tus ventas y hacerte perder dinero. Si los vendedores honestos fueran más rígidos en ese sentido, personas poco serias serían sacadas de la página más rápido. Sin embargo, por no querer perjudicar al comprador que no paga, en realidad perjudicamos a otros vendedores honestos. Hagamos de ML una comunidad más unida y segura.

Si a pesar de estos puntos necesitas denunciar a un comprador puedes hacerlo en el siguiente enlace: http://ayuda.mercadolibre.com.mx/contacto

Ojalá estos consejos te sean útiles. ¿Tienes alguna otra duda o comentario? Déjanos un mensaje con tu e-mail en esta página.

    THE owner of Leicester City bragged he was about to sack hero manager Claudio Ranieri as he embarked on a £500,000 wine spree, The Sun can reveal.

    Club chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha made the extraordinary boast to a director of another Premier League club he bumped into in a posh store.

    The Thai businessman — accused of ripping the soul out of soccer by axing Ranieri — was “all smiles” as he told of his shock decision.

    His bill at Hedonism Wines in London’s Mayfair was double the £250,000 he spent at the same shop as a thank-you present for Ranieri for leading the Foxes to a 5,000-1 league title just nine months ago.

    The jaw-dropping incident was confirmed by West Ham vice-chairman Baroness Karren Brady.

    The businesswoman and Apprentice star, 47, said: “Whilst browsing the Leicester owner told him that in an hour or so news would break they had sacked Claudio Ranieri.

    “He then went and settled his bill for wine and champagne, quite casually.

    “I am guessing the compensation payment to his old manager is mere pocket change by comparison.

    “Such a shame that the fairytale turned into a nightmare.

    “At least the owner can drown his sorrows in some style.”

    Another source said: “The Leicester owner looked like the cat that got the cream as he nonchalantly told another customer how he was sacking Ranieri.

    “The fact he was laughing and smiling made people think he must have been joking.

    “And the fact that he then thought nothing of spending up to £500,000 on booze just demonstrates that people running football clubs have no connection to the fans.

    “It’s a kick in the teeth for any Leicester supporter.”

    The news that Leicester — struggling in the Premier League but still in the Champions League — were firing Ranieri was made officially at 8pm on Thursday.

    The tycoon, who bought the club in 2010, added: “I will never let the club down.”

    Just 16 days earlier Srivaddhanaprabha, 58, had vowed to back the popular Italian, 65.

    Last night a spokesman for Leicester City FC chose not to comment.

It was the perfect complement to my breakfast cornflakes.Or there’s the £12,100 Colgin Herb Lamb Vineyard Cabernet — a cheeky 1993 vintage with notes of cherry and a peppery, dry finish.I don’t mind telling you it got me p***ed as a fart and tasted almost as nice as the Pot Noodle I had it with.

    Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha knows FA about football. He has no connection with the club or its fans other than as a business interest! I hope they get relegated, he sells up and a new owner who actually cares takes over! What manager would want to work for him after this?

    WASHINGTON — President Trump spoke out Tuesday against a series of bomb threats against Jewish community centers across the nation after coming under fire for sidestepping earlier opportunities to condemn several waves of anti-Semitic acts since he took office last month.

    It was a statement that anti-discrimination groups and Democrats say was too long in the making.

    Touring a new museum devoted to African-American history, Trump said Tuesday he will do what he can to improve race relations and denounced recent threats and vandalism aimed at Jews.

    “The anti-Semitic threats targeting our Jewish community and community centers are horrible and are painful, and a very sad reminder of the work that still must be done to root out hate and prejudice and evil,” Trump said after touring the National Museum of African American History and Culture. In an earlier interview on MSNBC, Trump said, “Anti-Semitism is horrible, and it’s going stop and it has to stop.”

    Trump had been criticized for passing up previous chances to denounce a spate of anti-Semitic incidents that include desecration of a Jewish cemetery and bomb threats targeting Jewish community centers. Federal authorities have been investigating bomb threats to at least 10 Jewish community centers, including in Alabama, Ohio and Illinois. No one was injured, and the threats appeared to be hoaxes, the Jewish Community Center Association of North America told NBC News on Monday.

    While Trump’s statement was a clear repudiation of the latest incidents, critics say it’s too little, too late after his presidential campaign attracted some prominent anti-Semites and white nationalists.

    White House spokesman Sean Spicer said Trump’s critics are being unfair and that Trump’s comments are “never good enough.”

    “He has been very forceful with his denunciation” of hate groups, Spicer told reporters. “It’s something he’s going to continue to fight and make clear it has no place in” his administration. “He’s been very clear previous to this he wants to be someone who brings this country together,” Spicer said.

    Building pressure

    For months, pressure has been building on Trump to repudiate hate groups as critics accused his campaign of providing safe space to white nationalist groups, beginning with its choice of a campaign slogan, “America First,” that was also the name of an organization tied to anti-Semites that urged the United States to appease German Chancellor Adolf Hitler before the U.S. entrance into World War II.

    Trump’s chief strategist Stephen Bannon is also the former head of the alt-right Breitbart News, but says he rejects the white nationalist tendencies of some in the alt-right movement. Critics also say Trump’s campaign promoted anti-Semitic stereotypes and failed to decisively condemn anti-Semitic leaders, including his repeated failure — with four different attempts — during a February 2016 CNN interview to condemn former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke. After coming under attack, Trump took to Twitter to say “I disavow” Duke.

    — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 28, 2016
    Trump is contending with critics who believe his campaign fanned intolerance against minorities, including Jews and Muslims, and can be linked to the rise of a number of hate groups. According to the Southern Poverty Law Center’s annual census, the number of such groups rose for a second year in a row in 2016 as “the radical right was energized by the candidacy of Donald Trump.” The “most dramatic growth” was the near-tripling of anti-Muslim groups, from 34 to 101 last year, the group says. Still, the group’s “hate map” also includes a number of black separatist groups.

    According to the Anti-Defamation League, Twitter users had viewed language associated with anti-Semitism more than 10 billion times in 2016, the social media equivalent of a $20 million Super Bowl ad. In a Washington Post article, Twitter disputed the high number, without providing specifics.

    Given the history, Trump’s words Tuesday didn’t go far enough for some.

    “The president’s sudden acknowledgement is a Band-Aid on the cancer of anti-Semitism that has infected his own administration,” said Steven Goldstein, executive director of the Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect. It’s “a pathetic asterisk of condescension after weeks in which he and his staff have committed grotesque acts and omissions reflecting anti-Semitism,” Goldstein said in a Facebook post.

    “When President Trump responds to anti-Semitism proactively and in real time, and without pleas and pressure, that’s when we’ll be able to say this president has turned a corner,” Goldstein said. “This is not that moment.”

    Last week Trump was asked twice on separate occasions about rising anti-Semitism, including by a Jewish reporter in a press conference. He responded by shouting down the reporter and insisting he is “the least anti-Semitic person that you’ve ever seen in your entire life.”

    Both Hillary Clinton and Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, who converted to her husband’s Jewish faith, had spoken out against the anti-Semitic acts, upping the ante for Trump to take a stand. Jared Kushner, Ivanka’s husband and a top White House adviser, is an Orthodox Jew.

    Earlier on Tuesday, Clinton tweeted: “JCC threats, cemetery desecration & online attacks are so troubling & they need to be stopped. Everyone must speak out, starting w/ @POTUS.”

    Holocaust statement

    Last month, Trump came under fire for the White House statement on International Holocaust Memorial Day that failed to mention the Jewish faith of the millions of “innocent people” who were killed and the anti-Semitism that led to their slaughter. It was a break with the tradition of past presidential statements.

    “They have played footsie with racist and anti-Semitic groups for a long time,” said Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., who spoke to i24 News, which broadcasts to the Middle East. “I’m blaming the Trump campaign for setting the mood for it.”

    Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., asked why it’s taken Trump “so long to even say the word ‘anti-Semitism?’ ” and suggested Trump has been “placating his base.”

    Why has it taken @realDonaldTrump so long to even say the word “anti-Semitism?” Perhaps it has something to do with placating his base?
    — Rep. Keith Ellison (@keithellison) February 21, 2017
    The comments bring to a head tensions building since early in Trump’s campaign:

    • In a December 2015 speech before the Republican Jewish Coalition, Trump seemed to invoke stereotypes about Jews and money often considered anti-Semitic. “You’re not gonna support me even though you know I’m the best thing that could ever happen to Israel. And I’ll be that,” said Trump. “And I know why you’re not going to support me. You’re not going to support me because I don’t want your money. Isn’t it crazy?”

    • In early July, Trump posted on Twitter an image of the Star of David shape next to a picture of Clinton atop a pile of money, calling her the “most corrupt candidate ever.” After coming under fire on social media, Trump deleted the post and replaced it with one that had a circle instead of the six-pointed star shape. Then he said he should have never taken it down, saying he would have rather defended it as “just a star.” Ten days earlier, the image had appeared on a white supremacist message board that included neo-Nazi propaganda and was tweeted out by a Twitter user who had frequently posted racist memes, CNN confirmed. His campaign said they got it from an “anti-Hillary Twitter user” and that the “sheriff’s badge” fit with a “corrupt Hillary” theme. House Speaker Paul Ryan called the tweet “anti-Semitic” and said such images have “no place in a presidential campaign.”

    • Later, retired lieutenant general Michael Flynn, Trump’s former national security adviser, retweeted an anti-Semitic message where he referred to the “corrupt Democratic machine” on a message that said “not anymore Jews” before quickly apologizing.

    • Trump was criticized for closing out his campaign with an ad denouncing an international global power structure that featured a number of prominent Jews in the financial industry, including Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen and Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein.

    As Trump’s campaign came under attack for these incidents, an old interview with Barbara Walters in 1990 came to light in which Trump was asked about keeping a copy of Hitler’s speeches, My New Order at his bedside.

    “It’s the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard. A friend of mine sent me a book,” he said, confusing it with the book Mein Kampf. “It happened to be that book,” he said, adding that he might sue Vanity Fair, whose writer, Marie Brenner, had claimed he admires the speeches.

    A broad range of activists opposed to the month-old Trump administration used Monday’s Presidents Day holiday to hold “Not My Presidents Day” rallies nationwide.

    While most government workers, school employees and students enjoyed a day off due to the federal holiday, events took place in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and as many as two dozen other communities, organizers said.

    In New York, hundreds of protesters gathered shortly after noon near Columbus Circle, home to a statue of Christopher Columbus and the Trump International Hotel and Tower, which was blockaded by police. At the southwest corner of Central Park, nearly opposite the hotel, protesters chanted “Hey hey, ho ho, Donald Trump has got to go!” Thousands more gathered in the streets nearby in anticipation of being allowed to march south.

    Many people carried placards — some of them strident, some amusing. “I don’t pay taxes to fund a golf weekend,” said one, while others pleaded that Americans “Just say no to fascist pigs” and “NO! We refuse to accept a fascist America.”

    ‘Not My Presidents Day’ protests across the USA
    One elderly woman carried a poster resembling a book cover entitled “The Little Golden Book of Alternative Facts.”

    “My family immigrated into this country from the Dominican Republic,” said Maria Amoldinado, 23, of Yonkers, N.Y. She said she attended the rally because of President Trump’s immigration policies and the specter of authoritarianism.

    “My great-grandparents and grandparents came here to escape poverty and to get away from the dictatorship of President (Rafael) Trujillo. I don’t want my family to live under another totalitarian regime.”

    Another attendee, Monica Lim, 26, of Brooklyn, said Trump’s attitude toward Muslims reminded her of the Asian exclusion legislation of the late 19th and early 20th centuries in the United States. “It was ‘The Yellow Peril’ then, and it is ‘The Hijab Peril’ now,” she said, referring to the scarf worn by many Muslim women.

    She also said she foresees a time when the rise of China could bring about clashes between an “undisciplined” Trump White House and an increasingly ambitious Beijing regime.

    Another protester, John Winterton, 33, of Hastings-on-Hudson, N.Y, a suburb north of the city, said he was most worried about Trump’s attitude toward the press. Pointing to the row of television trucks present to cover the rally, he said, “They’re here to shine light on the truth, not to create fake news. Sometimes they get things wrong, but they usually correct it quickly and the overall performance of the media in this country is truthful. It’s not fake news. The real fakery here is Donald Trump and his team’s ‘alternative facts.’”

    Janice Rosenberg, 68, of Manhattan’s Upper West Side, said she feared the rise of Trump and other right-wing leaders could portend a return to the kind of dictatorial regimes that resulted in the deaths of several relatives in the Holocaust.

    “I like to think that Trump will be held back by the checks and balances of the American system,” she said, “but other countries are not as fortunate as we are in having a firm constitution. And the virus can spread.”

    In the crowd, a lone Trump supporter with a red “Make America Great Again” baseball cap had a mixture of heated and light-hearted exchanges with protesters. As the exchanges grew more heated, television crews, photographers and reporters gathered to witness the scene.

    In Los Angeles, hundreds of protesters descended on City Hall chanting “Not my President!” No official count was available, but organizers put the size of the rally at more than 1,000, many times smaller than the Jan. 21 women’s march, which attracted 750,000.

    “Fear is contagious,” said Mike Stutz of Los Angeles, who painted his face orange and sported “Orange Fever” placards. “It can really destroy what we believe in as the American dream,” he said. “Don’t catch the orange fever. Embrace your fellow man, don’t reject your fellow man.”

    In a pink “pussy” hat, Marilyn Derr of Manhattan Beach, Calif., said, “Everyone deserves a chance in this country. We’re all immigrants.”

    Susan Walker of Los Angeles said she remembered marching against the Vietnam War in the 1960s and making an impact. “We got Congress to hear us,” she said. “We were important to getting the war to end.” Showing up to the rally, she said, “is better than sitting home and being mad all the time.”

    Protests were also taking place in nearby Pasadena and near Disneyland in Anaheim, Calif.
    Farther north, in the San Francisco Bay Area, about 30 people waded out into the latest storm, hoping to catch commuters returning from work and the long weekend along a highly trafficked intersection in the Silicon Valley town of San Mateo.

    Standing in front of a Bank of America building, whose murals depict the life of Italian-American A.P. Giannini, who founded the bank to help immigrants, a little over 30 people held umbrellas and signs that read “Resign” and “Impeach the emperor.” Every few minutes, drivers honked.

    Parisa Roghani, a professor at Oakland’s Samuel Merritt University, said she made the 30-mile commute to the protest because of Trump’s executive order affecting immigrants. Her father’s side of the family still lives in Iran.

    “If that stays in effect there are several family members who will die before I see them,” she said. “It makes me sad that family members can’t see each other and it has nothing to do with me and nothing to do with them,” said Roghani, 36.

    In Chicago, several hundred protesters demonstrated near the Trump International Hotel & Tower, which has been site of several large protests since Inauguration Day. Protesters — some school-age children tagging along with parents on their day off — held up signs that dug at Trump for losing the popular vote. Others expressed their support for the media and slammed him as a “jabberwocky terrorist who combats reason with babble & blather.”

    Ursula Wheeler, 29, said she has been dismayed by the selection and confirmation of Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt, who sued the federal agency more than a dozen times during his tenure as Oklahoma’s attorney general. She said she’s also concerned about what a Trump administration will mean for reproductive health care for women around the world — one of Trump’s first action’s as president was to re-establish a Reagan-era policy prohibiting American foreign aid to health care providers abroad that discuss abortion as a family-planning option.

    Before Trump’s election, Wheeler said she was not particularly politically active. But in the last month, she said she has made roughly a dozen calls to her congressional representatives to express her concern on policy issues. She has also made a weekly effort to attend a community forum or make a small donation to a cause that’s impacted by Trump policies.

    “Being here gives me a lot of hope, honestly,” said Wheeler, who carried a sign that read “Facts are not a liberal conspiracy.”

    “Sometimes I feel kind of alone in my dismay, anger and sadness, but then I remember how many people are feeling in the same boat,” she said.

    Barbara Evans, of Elgin, Ill., said she is optimistic that the protests will persist against Trump and that “he will get impeached sooner rather than later.” Evans said the energy of the anti-Trump movement is beginning to remind her of the Vietnam-era protests when she was a young woman.

    “It’s very exciting to me to finally see a huge percentage of the population is waking up, getting energized and joining us,” said Evans, who described herself as someone who “held her nose” and voted for Hillary Clinton in November. “It isn’t just Trump. The Republicans have been moving further to the right for many decades and becoming more and more extreme. The Democrats have been moving to the right to catch up and go for those corporate donations. It’s been terrifying to watch. Economic inequality keeps increasing and that’s fed the misery and discontent and the suspicion and resentment that led us to this moment.”

    Sublime Text performance with very large files
    General Discussion
    3 / 27

    timfennisApr 2013
    Hey guys.

    Me and my colleague are always discussing many different IDE’s and text editors. I am a big sublime text fan, and he pretty much hates everything. One of the problems we had with sublime text is that it’s really slow at loading very big files. Our example use-case was opening a 50MB .sql file. In my opinion this is not a valid usecase for a text editor but according to him it is.

    Other editors seem to load the file withing a few seconds. For example: EditPlus and SciTE (based on scintilla). What is the reason sublime text is so slow with large files? Any information that could add to this discussion is welcome.

    Thanks for your time.

    NarretzApr 2013
    AFAIR it has to do with the symbol indexing Sublime does when loading a file. Loading is faster in ST3, have you tried that?

    wbondApr 2013
    Yes, what Narretz says is true. I believe Jon significantly improved the performance for large files if you switch to “Plain Text” syntax in ST3 so that it does not need to use regex (that is what syntax defs use) to parse the file.

    qgatesApr 2013
    I believe it is mostly to do with syntax colouring. Sublime along with textmate are both particularly sophisticated in this area, allowing things like context specific colouration / syntax selection. Both are slow with large files, due to their heavy dependence on regexs. In addition, Sublime has the minimap which requires everything to be coloured correctly in realtime, making lazy colouring more difficult. Large edits on large colourised files will be particularly slow, as will undos, and large amounts of multi-cursor edits will exaggerate things. Forcing sublime to turn off colourisers with “plain text” should speed things up alot.

    Sublime 3 has improved in this area, though it would be nice to be able to disable colouring by default in certain situations (per session ie. View.. disable auto colourising) or to make this a setting available as either a global, per-project or per-file setting. Rather than doing it “after the fact”.

    I wonder if S3 has moved to doing this on a background thread (or will), so you can get working with your large files right away while the thread parsers through and applies the colouring. From what I’ve gleaned, the symbol indexing thing only happens when folders are added to the project, so this shouldn’t be an issue if the project’s empty.

    9 MONTHS LATER

    unphasedFeb 2014
    There should be a simple configuration option (an integer number of bytes. Say, 10*1024*1024 or 10MB) which either controls whether a file above that size will not have syntax regexes applied, or for which all files only get syntax regexes run over that initial segment of the file. So say you have a 30MB file with this setting, only the first third of the file gets highlighted.

    I have already noticed a limit of this sort which ST3 applies to very very long lines. It will refuse to syntax highlight lines that are longer than some particular length. This may or may not be limited to XML files which was what I noticed this on first. We need only to extend this concept to the lines of the file itself.

    Just loaded a 500MB file to check — 50s by stopwatch (with human error on start/stop time, of course), with no indication what’s going on that I can see. Tolerable but not great. Less is instant, and Atom crashes, by comparison. Could be better, could be worse.

    diathesisOct 2016
    On a 50MB file, Atom is actually slightly faster, and does warn about the large file, so you have some idea of what’s happening.

    qgatesOct 2016
    Something I need to do now and then is make S&R changes to SQL files for databases generated by CMS’s like Joomla and WordPress. Both PhpMyAdmin and MySQL dump generate SQL files with long lines (sometimes over 1000 characters); I had to edit one today and this is where Sublime struggles.

    On such files, Sublime becomes quite unresponsive, with a noticeable delay / high CPU when moving the cursor around, paging up/down through the file etc. I’m running a powerful machine here, so I can only imagine how bad this would be on a more ‘typical’ i5 or core2 laptop.

    I do feel that this needs attention in Sublime. Today I got by, but there are times when this is a showstopper and most other pay-for professional editors have no issue handling either very large files or files with long lines. Doubtlessly this is down to the editing engine design but I’d love to see some work on the core to improve this.

    Do you have wordwrap turned on? If so, that can cause a huge difference. With a large file containing hundreds of thousands to millions of lines, each line has to be checked to see if wrapping will happen and how it will affect the current viewport into the file. Without wrapping turned on, the viewport offset is much simpler to calculate.

    “on_new” is often called before the file is done loading so it might work.

    Very bad things to do:

    Do not warm the user.
    Do not show a loading progress bar.
    Do not allow to cancel the operation, if not kill the the whole process.
    If sublime just freezes, it means the work is being done on the main GUI thread. I am not saying to spam a new thread when opening a new file, just call one dedicated thread to perform secondary operations.

    qgatesNov 2016 wbond
    No, word wrap is off. With wrap on it’s completely unusable. I am aware of the tricks needed to make sublime more bearable with large files / long lines, like turning wrap off, switching to plain text (no syntax colouring), turn off ‘highlight matches’ for search etc. It’s usable but sluggish, and the bigger the file / longer the lines, the worse things get.

    The best solution would be to rework the editing or rendering core somewhat as my suspicion is that the issues lie there but in the absence of that, progress bars, warnings and opportunities to cancel anything that’s taking too long would be a definite plus.

    I wonder, is there any chance that this will get some attention? It’s really frustrating!!

    There is definitely a progress bar built in when loading large files. Are you using the default theme?

    Generally there is a lot of the editor that is implemented to make it a good code editor. Text has to be split into tokens to allow keyboard navigation, highlighting, indexing, symbol list, word wrapping, etc. Rewriting all of that so that it is possible to disable the majority of built-in functionality for the sake of opening a 500MB file seems to me like a generally unproductive use of time, in the grand scheme of all of the things that could use improvement and bug fixes. Plus, I imagine different users have a different idea of what functionality is essential that they would want preserved when editing a large file.

    Eclipse IDE asks the user whether they want to disable all extra features as syntax highlight, word-wrap and etc, before opening a big file. So the user may choose whether to wait more and get all features, or open early with no extra features. Sublime could do the same.

    Yeah, Sublime text has a loading bar, I tested opening 1GB file, and it allowed to cancel closing the file hitting by ctrl+w.

    7
    For 1GB file, it required a little more than 1GB of RAM’s Memory. But right after filling the progress bar, Sublime Text hanged for 20 some seconds. Then after it became responsive, I tried to interact with the file and Sublime Text hanged using all its CPU.

    For now, 5 minutes has passed and it still hanging, so I am killing the process. This 5 minutes hang after opened the file is because of issue #1463 Packages are allowed to hang Sublime Text Indefinitely5.

    Because when I did the same on a Vanilla Install, Sublime Text only hanged for 20 seconds right after the loading bar got filled. After it It was completely responsive! Good work. Now we know Sublime Text may handle 1GB files, but only the Vanilla version, because if there are more packages installed, they will hang Sublime Text due the issue #1463 Packages are allowed to hang Sublime Text Indefinitely5.

    view.set_syntax_file(‘Packages/Text/Plain text.tmLanguage’)
    settings = view.settings()
    settings.set(‘word_wrap’, False)
    But it seems the syntax is changed back to the original syntax after loading.

    One of the things I’ve seen in other editors is a “fallback mode” paired with clever windowing on syntax highlighting. Procedurally, the editor starts by using the fallback mode to highlight the file. Fallback modes are not allowed to have context, their regular expressions must be free of all backtracking, and everything has to be line-bounded. Basically, it’s simple tokenization and nothing more (note that this will mishandle tons of common constructs, including multi-line strings).

    Then the editor attempts to refine the fallback mode with the main mode, but bounding as much as possible within the active view subset of the file (plus/minus some reasonable expected scrolling). With modes that have neatly-closing contexts, this actually works out fairly well. For example, imagine the active view is in the middle of a class body, with the class starting just above the view and ending just below. The class body will pop most of the active contexts off the stack, and you’ll end up with just source.whatever. You can defer applying the full highlighting to the text above and below the view. There are clever ways to extend this to certain forms of contexts as well (e.g. situations where you don’t have things neatly popped off above and below), but you get the idea.

    The main thing you lose here is symbol indexing, since you can’t ever fully-contextualize the entire file. I don’t think that would be a surprising loss for most people, especially if it is accompanied by a warning (e.g. a banner at the top of the view, indicating that limited highlighting is in effect, with an option to turn on full highlighting at the cost of performance). You do get to keep the minimap, which is sort of fun, though it will have limited accuracy outside the current view (and for that reason, it might be better to disable it on such files).

    Obviously, this is certainly a significant amount of work that may not have value, and might even (depending on implementation) require backward-compatible changes to modes to work optimally. But it does allow for opening and editing enormously large files.

    djspiewak:
    Fallback modes are not allowed to have context, their regular expressions must be free of all backtracking, and everything has to be line-bounded.
    We already have most of this by default. Granted, syntax definitions may still use backtracking, but it’s much slower and there are tests to ensure your syntax definition does not contain backtracking expressions.

    Although contexts may span multiple lines, I doubt it impacts performance much since the overall work done is still very similar and the entire file is almost never re-tokenized entirely after it has been once due to smart caching.

    Edit: The one thing ST wouldn’t be able to do currently is start lexing in the middle of the file for the first time. It must load and tokenize the entire file first before caching can help.

    There is a progress bar when loading, but anything that may be time consuming to the point of locking up Sublime has neither progress indication nor the facility to abort.

    I have worked on editor codebases in the past (most of my development life is C/C++) so I understand the complexities involved generally. Obviously, I can’t comment on Sublime as I have no knowledge of its design or implementation. I can’t be the only programmer / technical user that needs to work on large files or files with long lines, and the fact is I can’t use Sublime for many of these tasks. Moreover, I can work on same with almost any other half decent editor. Falling back to another editor isn’t the end of the world, but is nonetheless frustrating.

    Apart from anything else, it just doesn’t look good. Sublime is sold as a general purpose, high performance editor, but starts to feel flaky when you throw something substantial at it. I don’t share your view that addressing such issues would be a waste of time: making the editor robust under all circumstances shores up its reputation as the first choice in high performance, powerful editors for all tasks. Case in point: Photoshop. It doesn’t break when you load up huge images. It feels robust. It warns you when something’s going to take time and doesn’t lock up. It’s UI rarely falters or gets ‘slow’. Ergo, the go-to tool for pretty much anyone needing to edit images professionally.

    Don’t misunderstand me, this isn’t a rant: I love Sublime and continue to use it daily. But the value proposition is problematic for some when they have to switch between numerous editors for no good reason. We all want Sublime to improve and I see this as one of its limitations. Admittedly one that may not be the most straightforward to fix.

    wbondNov 2016
    I think this issue needs some more specification. Right now what I am hearing is that large file handling is completely broken, whereas that feels to me (based on my experience) like a little bit of hyperbole. Certainly there are areas that could be improved, but let’s identify some specifics so we can move the conversation forward.

    I should note I am using a 2.3GHz rMBP from 2013 with 16GB of ram and an SSD.

    I just opened a 5GB PostgreSQL dump with 45M lines. It took a while to load and tokenize from disk. There was a progress bar and a way to abort.

    Hangs I experienced:

    After the file was loaded from disk (1-2 min?) Sublime Text became unresponsive for about 20s
    When changing from word wrap mode to non-word wrap mode there was a hang
    Trying to apply the SQL syntax (my machine paused Sublime Text after memory was exhausted)
    Otherwise (with Plain Text syntax) I was able to scroll effortlessly through all 45M lines and move the cursor around without any lag whatsoever. This was true with word wrap on, also. Sublime Text was using around 10GB of memory.

    Perhaps the solution is:

    Figure out the lag after the file is loaded
    Prevent anything but Plain Text syntax for 100MB+ files, and disallow word wrap (just to prevent the lag of switching it)
    Currently there isn’t a way to detach the display of the file with the in-memory representation. When a syntax is applied, the file must be retokenized and have scopes applied. It would probably make sense to trigger a progress bar here. Without doubling memory usage, it wouldn’t really be possible to keep the old tokenization in-memory, so canceling would have to retokenize with the Plain Text syntax.

    Are there other situations where you see Sublime Text hanging that aren’t caused by a third-party package? I’ve seen mention of ST being unresponsive navigating a SQL dump. Perhaps someone has some SQL dumps they are experiencing lag with that I can look at? Are you moving the cursor around, or typing? Are you typing a character such as a double or single quote when you experience the lag?

    For a 24MB SQL file loading happened in < 1s and applying the SQL syntax happened in under 2s (with a hang). There were 84k lines, with many over 1000 chars long. Editing was perfectly fluid.

    IMHO, I think this is an issue but not one that too much time and effort should be spent on. ST is aimed squarely at devs and coders and most source files are small. The huge files we are talking about are likely logs or data dumps. It's mainly the inconvience of having to open another editor, or accidentally opening a huge file and have it hang ST.

    With that in mind, I think it's enough for ST to fall back into some "safe" mode, no syntax coloring or word wrap, and perhaps no packages outside of the defaults. You can add a view.is_safe_mode() method to let plugins know if safe mode is active and decide whether they want to run, or perhaps you can require plugins to declare themselves okay to run in safe mode somehow, meaning plugins are not safe by default.

    And of course user can set a size threshold to trigger safe mode, and manually force normal mode when needed.

    Packages are loaded into the plugin host, so it won't be possible to disable them for a specific view. It would require either another sheet type where various API features were not available, or some sort of opt-in system where plugins would choose not to operate on large files. The later option likely wouldn't do much, and the former would require a bunch of work to interact with the current API in a way that didn't lead to lots of Python errors.

    Ok, so "hyperbole" aside – no offense taken 😉 – there are really two issues here:

    Big files
    Long lines
    SQL files have a habit of fitting into both categories, but there are any number of file types, which may or may not be used by programmers, sysadmins, researchers etc. that could be either or both.

    Considering long lines, easier to demonstrate and the more pressing issue personally, we really don't need a 500M file as @wbond put it to see usability going south (although, 500M really isn't all that big these days?!) A 1M file will suffice for the purpose of illustration…

    So creating a 1M 'lorem ipsum' on 1 line, Sublime text 3 portable build 3083, no plugins. I observe the following:

    A. Word wrap off, 'Plain text' syntax mode, Find 'highlight matches' disabled:

    'Phase' cursor pulsing animation is jerky and not smooth
    CPU is at 25% on my quad-core system running at 3.5Ghz when idling
    All UI interaction with the keyboard is laggy and slow, even interacting with popups. Cursoring right a 0.5-1 second pause before the cursor reacts.
    Highlighting 'sit' and pressing Alt+F3 to highlight all copies (3000) freezes sublime for 5 seconds. Trying to move or type with these multicursors takes 5-7 seconds per keystroke. Phase cursor animation has almost completely stopped.
    B. Word wrap on, 'Plain text' syntax mode, Find 'highlight matches' disabled:

    Cursor pulsing as expected
    CPU is 1-2% when idling
    UI interaction within acceptable parameters (no noticeable delays)
    Highlighting 'sit' and pressing Alt+F3 takes 2 seconds. Once all copies are highlighted cursor pulsing animation has almost completely stopped. CPU use is at 25% while idling. Cursoring right takes 2s before the UI reacts
    Just viewing, scrolling and cursoring, let along performing edits in scenario (A) above is painful. And in many cases, when trying to do more sophisticated operations, Sublime will crash completely. Scenario (B) is more usable, but the moment we do anything with multicursors things get similarly bad.

    Curiously, the situation with word wrap off seems much worse; Given that most of what's going on is outside the viewport rendering area (even for the minimap) it appears that either Sublime is rendering everything all the time (without optimising for things that aren't visible like cursors) or the data representation of editing objects could use some tuning. The irony being that with word wrap on, there is more visible rendering, especially with the minimap enabled. In both A/B cases, it feels like there's room for improvement and optimisation.

    In real world files, we may have many lines which are 100K+ in addition to many more short lines, and the situation is worse. Even with syntax colouring switched off, such files are a real PITA to view and edit with Sublime and your fingers are nervously hovering the keyboard in case something you do is going to hang or crash Sublime. By contrast, Crisp, Notepad++, Codewright, UltraEdit, VIM, gedit and have no such issues, and only start to feel the strain when files/lines get huge by today's standards.

    Build 3083 is a pretty old build, is there a reason you picked that over 3126?

    I'm not seeing the issues your are describing in situation A with build 3126 when I have a single line file with 1M characters on a single line. Cursors movement is ever-so-sightly slower than a source code file, but CPU usage is 4% on my 2.3GHz laptop. I also able to use multiple cursors.

    For me it starts getting laggy when I have a 4MB file with 50kb lines. It seems that long lines are truly the issue here.

    qgatesNov 2016 1
    Build 3083 is just what I had to hand. I just tried a portable 3126 Win x64 and although the performance is slightly better in broad brush it's much the same. The whole UI becomes unresponsive, UI responses to keystrokes measureable in seconds and seems to use a core's worth of CPU in situation A pretty much all the time.

    Must confess that my 1M file is actually 1.3M. I didn't realise but I'd pasted a few extra 'lorem ipsums' in my haste 😉 But I don't see anything like the performance you're seeing, neither on my Q9xx overclocked desktop, nor on my i5 3.4Ghz Lenovo T530 laptop.

    And you are right, whether it's one long line (1.3M in this case) or lots of long-ish lines as you suggest, performance degrades about the same. A big file with lots of 20kb lines (say, with the long lines totalling 1M+) exhibits the same behaviour, with the performance degrading linearly to the point of being unusable as the file includes more long lines.

    Though I haven't done any deeper tests yet, performance in scenario B seems to be better in terms of idling, scrolling, and simple cursor movement/inserts. But for deeper edits it gets just as bad as (A). For example, selecting 'sit' and Alt+F3 (selecting around 3000 copies), cursoring right and typing 1 letter caused Sublime to crash. Repeating the exercise, Sublime hung for 2 minutes and finally came back with the inserted letter.

    Hi,
    so any news about this? Tried latest 3126 and tried to open a 500 mb log file. It took very long to open. Suggestion would be here to read only the first X MB and already show the contents. Then load more on demand when the user scrolls down or scrolls down implicitly by searching.

    That would be a good improvement (at least for me).

    Performance improvement when editing/searching in the whole file (auto select found positions) – I would see in a second step. I wonder how others solved this (i.e. UltraEdit)

    From my understanding of the codebase (which is still relatively shallow due to the sheer size), the ideas that have been suggested about partial loading go against the grain of the current implementation. Many of the existing features and built-in implementation assumptions were developed with the entire token list being in memory.

    Generally using the Plain Text syntax and turning word wrapping off helps since it causes there less work to do.

    Sublime Text performance with very large files
    General Discussion
    3 / 27

    timfennisApr 2013
    Hey guys.

    Me and my colleague are always discussing many different IDE’s and text editors. I am a big sublime text fan, and he pretty much hates everything. One of the problems we had with sublime text is that it’s really slow at loading very big files. Our example use-case was opening a 50MB .sql file. In my opinion this is not a valid usecase for a text editor but according to him it is.

    Other editors seem to load the file withing a few seconds. For example: EditPlus and SciTE (based on scintilla). What is the reason sublime text is so slow with large files? Any information that could add to this discussion is welcome.

    Thanks for your time.

    NarretzApr 2013
    AFAIR it has to do with the symbol indexing Sublime does when loading a file. Loading is faster in ST3, have you tried that?

    wbondApr 2013
    Yes, what Narretz says is true. I believe Jon significantly improved the performance for large files if you switch to “Plain Text” syntax in ST3 so that it does not need to use regex (that is what syntax defs use) to parse the file.

    qgatesApr 2013
    I believe it is mostly to do with syntax colouring. Sublime along with textmate are both particularly sophisticated in this area, allowing things like context specific colouration / syntax selection. Both are slow with large files, due to their heavy dependence on regexs. In addition, Sublime has the minimap which requires everything to be coloured correctly in realtime, making lazy colouring more difficult. Large edits on large colourised files will be particularly slow, as will undos, and large amounts of multi-cursor edits will exaggerate things. Forcing sublime to turn off colourisers with “plain text” should speed things up alot.

    Sublime 3 has improved in this area, though it would be nice to be able to disable colouring by default in certain situations (per session ie. View.. disable auto colourising) or to make this a setting available as either a global, per-project or per-file setting. Rather than doing it “after the fact”.

    I wonder if S3 has moved to doing this on a background thread (or will), so you can get working with your large files right away while the thread parsers through and applies the colouring. From what I’ve gleaned, the symbol indexing thing only happens when folders are added to the project, so this shouldn’t be an issue if the project’s empty.

    unphasedFeb 2014
    There should be a simple configuration option (an integer number of bytes. Say, 10*1024*1024 or 10MB) which either controls whether a file above that size will not have syntax regexes applied, or for which all files only get syntax regexes run over that initial segment of the file. So say you have a 30MB file with this setting, only the first third of the file gets highlighted.

    I have already noticed a limit of this sort which ST3 applies to very very long lines. It will refuse to syntax highlight lines that are longer than some particular length. This may or may not be limited to XML files which was what I noticed this on first. We need only to extend this concept to the lines of the file itself.

    Just loaded a 500MB file to check — 50s by stopwatch (with human error on start/stop time, of course), with no indication what’s going on that I can see. Tolerable but not great. Less is instant, and Atom crashes, by comparison. Could be better, could be worse.

    On a 50MB file, Atom is actually slightly faster, and does warn about the large file, so you have some idea of what’s happening.

    Something I need to do now and then is make S&R changes to SQL files for databases generated by CMS’s like Joomla and WordPress. Both PhpMyAdmin and MySQL dump generate SQL files with long lines (sometimes over 1000 characters); I had to edit one today and this is where Sublime struggles.

    On such files, Sublime becomes quite unresponsive, with a noticeable delay / high CPU when moving the cursor around, paging up/down through the file etc. I’m running a powerful machine here, so I can only imagine how bad this would be on a more ‘typical’ i5 or core2 laptop.

    I do feel that this needs attention in Sublime. Today I got by, but there are times when this is a showstopper and most other pay-for professional editors have no issue handling either very large files or files with long lines. Doubtlessly this is down to the editing engine design but I’d love to see some work on the core to improve this.

    Do you have wordwrap turned on? If so, that can cause a huge difference. With a large file containing hundreds of thousands to millions of lines, each line has to be checked to see if wrapping will happen and how it will affect the current viewport into the file. Without wrapping turned on, the viewport offset is much simpler to calculate.

    “on_new” is often called before the file is done loading so it might work.

    EDIT: I meant “on_activated_async”

    Very bad things to do:

    Do not warm the user.
    Do not show a loading progress bar.
    Do not allow to cancel the operation, if not kill the the whole process.
    If sublime just freezes, it means the work is being done on the main GUI thread. I am not saying to spam a new thread when opening a new file, just call one dedicated thread to perform secondary operations.

    qgatesNov 2016 wbond
    No, word wrap is off. With wrap on it’s completely unusable. I am aware of the tricks needed to make sublime more bearable with large files / long lines, like turning wrap off, switching to plain text (no syntax colouring), turn off ‘highlight matches’ for search etc. It’s usable but sluggish, and the bigger the file / longer the lines, the worse things get.

    The best solution would be to rework the editing or rendering core somewhat as my suspicion is that the issues lie there but in the absence of that, progress bars, warnings and opportunities to cancel anything that’s taking too long would be a definite plus.

    I wonder, is there any chance that this will get some attention? It’s really frustrating!!

    There is definitely a progress bar built in when loading large files. Are you using the default theme?

    Generally there is a lot of the editor that is implemented to make it a good code editor. Text has to be split into tokens to allow keyboard navigation, highlighting, indexing, symbol list, word wrapping, etc. Rewriting all of that so that it is possible to disable the majority of built-in functionality for the sake of opening a 500MB file seems to me like a generally unproductive use of time, in the grand scheme of all of the things that could use improvement and bug fixes. Plus, I imagine different users have a different idea of what functionality is essential that they would want preserved when editing a large file.

    Eclipse IDE asks the user whether they want to disable all extra features as syntax highlight, word-wrap and etc, before opening a big file. So the user may choose whether to wait more and get all features, or open early with no extra features. Sublime could do the same.

    Yeah, Sublime text has a loading bar, I tested opening 1GB file, and it allowed to cancel closing the file hitting by ctrl+w.

    7
    For 1GB file, it required a little more than 1GB of RAM’s Memory. But right after filling the progress bar, Sublime Text hanged for 20 some seconds. Then after it became responsive, I tried to interact with the file and Sublime Text hanged using all its CPU.

    For now, 5 minutes has passed and it still hanging, so I am killing the process. This 5 minutes hang after opened the file is because of issue #1463 Packages are allowed to hang Sublime Text Indefinitely5.

    Because when I did the same on a Vanilla Install, Sublime Text only hanged for 20 seconds right after the loading bar got filled. After it It was completely responsive! Good work. Now we know Sublime Text may handle 1GB files, but only the Vanilla version, because if there are more packages installed, they will hang Sublime Text due the issue #1463 Packages are allowed to hang Sublime Text Indefinitely5.

    One of the things I’ve seen in other editors is a “fallback mode” paired with clever windowing on syntax highlighting. Procedurally, the editor starts by using the fallback mode to highlight the file. Fallback modes are not allowed to have context, their regular expressions must be free of all backtracking, and everything has to be line-bounded. Basically, it’s simple tokenization and nothing more (note that this will mishandle tons of common constructs, including multi-line strings).

    Then the editor attempts to refine the fallback mode with the main mode, but bounding as much as possible within the active view subset of the file (plus/minus some reasonable expected scrolling). With modes that have neatly-closing contexts, this actually works out fairly well. For example, imagine the active view is in the middle of a class body, with the class starting just above the view and ending just below. The class body will pop most of the active contexts off the stack, and you’ll end up with just source.whatever. You can defer applying the full highlighting to the text above and below the view. There are clever ways to extend this to certain forms of contexts as well (e.g. situations where you don’t have things neatly popped off above and below), but you get the idea.

    The main thing you lose here is symbol indexing, since you can’t ever fully-contextualize the entire file. I don’t think that would be a surprising loss for most people, especially if it is accompanied by a warning (e.g. a banner at the top of the view, indicating that limited highlighting is in effect, with an option to turn on full highlighting at the cost of performance). You do get to keep the minimap, which is sort of fun, though it will have limited accuracy outside the current view (and for that reason, it might be better to disable it on such files).

    Obviously, this is certainly a significant amount of work that may not have value, and might even (depending on implementation) require backward-compatible changes to modes to work optimally. But it does allow for opening and editing enormously large files.

    FichteFollNov 2016 1
    djspiewak:
    Fallback modes are not allowed to have context, their regular expressions must be free of all backtracking, and everything has to be line-bounded.
    We already have most of this by default. Granted, syntax definitions may still use backtracking, but it’s much slower and there are tests to ensure your syntax definition does not contain backtracking expressions.

    Although contexts may span multiple lines, I doubt it impacts performance much since the overall work done is still very similar and the entire file is almost never re-tokenized entirely after it has been once due to smart caching.

    Edit: The one thing ST wouldn’t be able to do currently is start lexing in the middle of the file for the first time. It must load and tokenize the entire file first before caching can help.

    There is a progress bar when loading, but anything that may be time consuming to the point of locking up Sublime has neither progress indication nor the facility to abort.

    I have worked on editor codebases in the past (most of my development life is C/C++) so I understand the complexities involved generally. Obviously, I can’t comment on Sublime as I have no knowledge of its design or implementation. I can’t be the only programmer / technical user that needs to work on large files or files with long lines, and the fact is I can’t use Sublime for many of these tasks. Moreover, I can work on same with almost any other half decent editor. Falling back to another editor isn’t the end of the world, but is nonetheless frustrating.

    Apart from anything else, it just doesn’t look good. Sublime is sold as a general purpose, high performance editor, but starts to feel flaky when you throw something substantial at it. I don’t share your view that addressing such issues would be a waste of time: making the editor robust under all circumstances shores up its reputation as the first choice in high performance, powerful editors for all tasks. Case in point: Photoshop. It doesn’t break when you load up huge images. It feels robust. It warns you when something’s going to take time and doesn’t lock up. It’s UI rarely falters or gets ‘slow’. Ergo, the go-to tool for pretty much anyone needing to edit images professionally.

    Don’t misunderstand me, this isn’t a rant: I love Sublime and continue to use it daily. But the value proposition is problematic for some when they have to switch between numerous editors for no good reason. We all want Sublime to improve and I see this as one of its limitations. Admittedly one that may not be the most straightforward to fix.

    wbondNov 2016
    I think this issue needs some more specification. Right now what I am hearing is that large file handling is completely broken, whereas that feels to me (based on my experience) like a little bit of hyperbole. Certainly there are areas that could be improved, but let’s identify some specifics so we can move the conversation forward.

    I should note I am using a 2.3GHz rMBP from 2013 with 16GB of ram and an SSD.

    I just opened a 5GB PostgreSQL dump with 45M lines. It took a while to load and tokenize from disk. There was a progress bar and a way to abort.

    Hangs I experienced:

    After the file was loaded from disk (1-2 min?) Sublime Text became unresponsive for about 20s
    When changing from word wrap mode to non-word wrap mode there was a hang
    Trying to apply the SQL syntax (my machine paused Sublime Text after memory was exhausted)
    Otherwise (with Plain Text syntax) I was able to scroll effortlessly through all 45M lines and move the cursor around without any lag whatsoever. This was true with word wrap on, also. Sublime Text was using around 10GB of memory.

    Perhaps the solution is:

    Figure out the lag after the file is loaded
    Prevent anything but Plain Text syntax for 100MB+ files, and disallow word wrap (just to prevent the lag of switching it)
    Currently there isn’t a way to detach the display of the file with the in-memory representation. When a syntax is applied, the file must be retokenized and have scopes applied. It would probably make sense to trigger a progress bar here. Without doubling memory usage, it wouldn’t really be possible to keep the old tokenization in-memory, so canceling would have to retokenize with the Plain Text syntax.

    Are there other situations where you see Sublime Text hanging that aren’t caused by a third-party package? I’ve seen mention of ST being unresponsive navigating a SQL dump. Perhaps someone has some SQL dumps they are experiencing lag with that I can look at? Are you moving the cursor around, or typing? Are you typing a character such as a double or single quote when you experience the lag?

    For a 24MB SQL file loading happened in < 1s and applying the SQL syntax happened in under 2s (with a hang). There were 84k lines, with many over 1000 chars long. Editing was perfectly fluid.

    IMHO, I think this is an issue but not one that too much time and effort should be spent on. ST is aimed squarely at devs and coders and most source files are small. The huge files we are talking about are likely logs or data dumps. It's mainly the inconvience of having to open another editor, or accidentally opening a huge file and have it hang ST.

    With that in mind, I think it's enough for ST to fall back into some "safe" mode, no syntax coloring or word wrap, and perhaps no packages outside of the defaults. You can add a view.is_safe_mode() method to let plugins know if safe mode is active and decide whether they want to run, or perhaps you can require plugins to declare themselves okay to run in safe mode somehow, meaning plugins are not safe by default.

    And of course user can set a size threshold to trigger safe mode, and manually force normal mode when needed.

    Packages are loaded into the plugin host, so it won't be possible to disable them for a specific view. It would require either another sheet type where various API features were not available, or some sort of opt-in system where plugins would choose not to operate on large files. The later option likely wouldn't do much, and the former would require a bunch of work to interact with the current API in a way that didn't lead to lots of Python errors.

    Ok, so "hyperbole" aside – no offense taken 😉 – there are really two issues here:

    Big files
    Long lines
    SQL files have a habit of fitting into both categories, but there are any number of file types, which may or may not be used by programmers, sysadmins, researchers etc. that could be either or both.

    Considering long lines, easier to demonstrate and the more pressing issue personally, we really don't need a 500M file as @wbond put it to see usability going south (although, 500M really isn't all that big these days?!) A 1M file will suffice for the purpose of illustration…

    So creating a 1M 'lorem ipsum' on 1 line, Sublime text 3 portable build 3083, no plugins. I observe the following:

    A. Word wrap off, 'Plain text' syntax mode, Find 'highlight matches' disabled:

    'Phase' cursor pulsing animation is jerky and not smooth
    CPU is at 25% on my quad-core system running at 3.5Ghz when idling
    All UI interaction with the keyboard is laggy and slow, even interacting with popups. Cursoring right a 0.5-1 second pause before the cursor reacts.
    Highlighting 'sit' and pressing Alt+F3 to highlight all copies (3000) freezes sublime for 5 seconds. Trying to move or type with these multicursors takes 5-7 seconds per keystroke. Phase cursor animation has almost completely stopped.
    B. Word wrap on, 'Plain text' syntax mode, Find 'highlight matches' disabled:

    Cursor pulsing as expected
    CPU is 1-2% when idling
    UI interaction within acceptable parameters (no noticeable delays)
    Highlighting 'sit' and pressing Alt+F3 takes 2 seconds. Once all copies are highlighted cursor pulsing animation has almost completely stopped. CPU use is at 25% while idling. Cursoring right takes 2s before the UI reacts
    Just viewing, scrolling and cursoring, let along performing edits in scenario (A) above is painful. And in many cases, when trying to do more sophisticated operations, Sublime will crash completely. Scenario (B) is more usable, but the moment we do anything with multicursors things get similarly bad.

    Curiously, the situation with word wrap off seems much worse; Given that most of what's going on is outside the viewport rendering area (even for the minimap) it appears that either Sublime is rendering everything all the time (without optimising for things that aren't visible like cursors) or the data representation of editing objects could use some tuning. The irony being that with word wrap on, there is more visible rendering, especially with the minimap enabled. In both A/B cases, it feels like there's room for improvement and optimisation.

    In real world files, we may have many lines which are 100K+ in addition to many more short lines, and the situation is worse. Even with syntax colouring switched off, such files are a real PITA to view and edit with Sublime and your fingers are nervously hovering the keyboard in case something you do is going to hang or crash Sublime. By contrast, Crisp, Notepad++, Codewright, UltraEdit, VIM, gedit and have no such issues, and only start to feel the strain when files/lines get huge by today's standards.

    Sub-zero es un ninja azul enmascarado (en MK3 aparece desenmascarado, también en MK deadly alliance). Al igual que su hermano Sub-Zero original, desciende de los cryomancers, una raza foránea que posee la capacidad de generar y de controlar los poderes del hielo.

    Sub-zero se ha convertido en uno de los personajes más populares de la saga de videojuegos Mortal kombat, y su fama ha sobrepasado a la de Liu Kang, el héroe principal de los juegos. Actualmente, Sub-zero y Scorpion son considerados los personajes más populares de la serie.

    Aparece en todas las sagas de Mortal Kombat, es un personaje clásico de este video juego.

    El joven Sub-zero comparte muchos aspectos con su hermano mayor, el Sub-Zero original (quien luego fue renombrado como Noob Saibot). Como este, el joven Sub-zero da la impresión de ser un hombre frío y distante que no desea llamar la atención innecesariamente.

    Mientras que Sub-zero fue representado inicialmente como un ninja joven que vivía a la sombra de su hermano, con el paso del tiempo se ha convertido en un guerrero que ha progresado en aspectos morales y filosóficos.

    Este cambio en sus características no sólo lo ha consolidado como hombre, sino que también lo ha apartado de sus compañeros del clan Lin Kuei. Esto lo llevo a abandonar su clan y romper los códigos sagrados de honor, pues su clan empezó con la automatización de sus guerreros, Sub-zero y su mejor amigo y compañero Smoke iban a ser los primeros, pero ninguno accedió y en vez de eso prefirieron huir, pero Smoke no lo logró pues fue capturado y automatizado, igual que Cyrax y Sektor, y su primera misión fue capturar al traidor Sub Zero, pero ninguno lo logro, ya que Cyrax fue el primero que lo encontró pero fue vencido, reprogramado, terminando solo y atrapado en un desierto, después de esto se unió a la rebelión en contra de Shao Khan apoyando a Raiden y a Liu Kang (junto con otros guerreros elegidos de la tierra). Más recientemente, él derrotó al cyborg asesino Sektor, para ganar la dirección del Lin kuei y llegar a ser su Grandmaster, después de esto Sub-zero conoce a Frost en donde ve un potencial enorme y a una gran aliada, tanto que en un nuevo llamado de Raiden para enfrentar la alianza mortal Sub-zero y Frost se separaron del resto del grupo y Frost lo congelo momentáneamente robándole el medallon de dragón, Frost sintió el gran poder que este daba pero no lo supo dominar, su poder de hielo la congelo en ataúd. Después Sub-zero cargo con ella hasta llegar a unas ruinas donde después de investigárlas logro reconocer parajes de su cultura y sus antepasados, además descubrió la armadura de sus antepasados (es la que trae en MK Deception y MK Armaggedon como traje alternativo).

    Después de dejar a Frost en las antiguas ruinas, Sub-zero encuentra a un extraño personaje muy lastimado y casi muerto, pero con la particularidad que sus ojos estaban vendados, su nombre era Kenshi, Sub-zero lo cuido y ayudo en su recuperación, a causa de la simpatía y generosidad de él, ambos decidieron hacer una alianza corta hasta encontrar un portal que los trajera de regreso a casa, esta alianza resultó larga y duradera con un gran sentimiento de amistad, pues ambos se respetaban mutuamente. En el final de MK Deception, Sub-zero es emboscado por una horda de guerreros tarkata (raza de Baraka) en donde el líder de Lin Kuei demostró por qué es considerado como uno de los más fuertes, pues acabo con todos los enviados de Hotaru (guerrero que ejerce la ley y el orden a toda costa). Una noche Sub-zero y Kenshi se encontraban acampando cuando de sorpresa un rayo de luz cayo en medio de ellos dejándolos desprevenidos y atontados con este, era Hotaru que venia en caza de Sub-zero para llevarlo donde el rey Onaga, en ese momento Sub-zero queda ciego momentáneamente, y Hotaru aprovecha para acabar con él, pero no contó que esto no afectaba a Kenshi en lo más mínimo y este aprovechó para asesinar a Hotaru, salvando la vida de su amigo quien apenas estaba recobrando la vista. En MK Armaggedon, Sub-zero derrota a Blaze y con todo su poder se autonombra como dios del hielo, pero esto no le gusto a los elder gods y envían a guerreros para acabar con él, cosa que no logran.

    Él es un aliado confiable de Earthrealm que está dispuesto a colaborar cuando se lo necesita, respondiendo a las llamadas de Raiden. A pesar que Sub-zero no es el campeón más grande de Mortal Kombat, él es indiscutiblemente uno de los mejores guerreros que ha tenido Earthrealm. Es uno de los más polivalentes de todos ellos. Como muchos de los personajes de MK representa un arquetipo, en su caso el héroe enigmático que aparece cuando el protagonista necesita ayuda. Posee rivalidad (hasta Mortal kombat 4) con su viejo enemigo Scorpion, un ninja a sueldo de aspecto infernal. Pero luego de Mortal Kombat Unchained, Scorpion descubre que Sub-zero no fue quien mató a su clan, sino Quan Chi.

    Sub-zero es uno de los mejores ninjas además de tener un poder original poco visto en otros juegos como el “dominio del hielo”. Esto llamo la atención en Mortal kombat 1 por eso se hizo tan popular el juego y el personaje, junto con Scorpion y su lanza.

    Después que llego del outworld Sub-zero se dirigió a su palacio pero encontró que muchos de sus ninjas habían muerto, así que inmediatamente se dirigió a ver que pasaba y en una de las recamaras descubrió que su pupila Frost había despertado y era la causante de todo ese alboroto, la traidora solo podía pronunciar “SUB ZERO”, y lo imaginaba en todas partes, ella mira que el entra por la puerta mientras está golpeando a un ninja y se prepara para el combate, el líder de Lin Kuei también se prepara con su estilo de pelea, shotokan, y le hace frente, la batalla es dura pero ahora Sub-zero tiene más poder aún y esquiva los ataques de Frost, mas ella no logra resisitir la ráfaga de hielo que le cae como si fuera un baño de agua congelada, dejándola quieta e inmóvil, prácticamente le hacen un ataúd de hielo tan grueso que ni el mismo Sub-zero seria capaz de deshacer y gana la batalla Sub-zero, lo único que pudo hacer por ella fue depositarla en una de las cámaras del palacio y posteriormente selló la entrada con una enorme pared de hielo esperando a que su demencia se cure para así poder pagar el castigo al que debe ser sometida por la masacre del clan Lin kuei.

    Nota: Este final se cumple parcialmente, ya que es cierto que Sub-Zero regresa al Templo Lin Kuei para enterrar en un ataúd de hielo a Frost, donde encuentra su armadura en MKD, pero Raiden jamás pudo haber venido a felicitarlo ya que los hechos de MKD lo contradicen. Raiden muere por su propia energía, pero renace como un nuevo dios, pero oscuro y vengativo, jamás podría felicitar a Sub-Zero por nada.

    Libro de texto

    El libro de texto es una de las posibles formas que pueden adoptar los materiales curriculares para facilitar el proceso de enseñanza-aprendizaje. Se trata de un documento impreso concebido para que el docente desarrolle su programa: habitualmente, diseña y organiza de manera precisa la práctica didáctica, esto es, la selección, la secuencia y organización temporal de los contenidos, la elección de los textos de apoyo, el diseño de las actividades y de los ejercicios de evaluación.

    Tradicionalmente, los libros de texto han sido el soporte principal de los materiales curriculares. Sin embargo, el carácter predeterminado de estos recursos impresos es un aspecto que ha sido cuestionado en los movimientos de renovación pedagógica que se han ido sucediendo desde principios del siglo XX. La pedagogía activa ha criticado el hecho de que el profesor pueda limitarse a ser mera llave de paso entre el texto que explica y el alumno a quien instruye, coartando la autonomía e iniciativa de ambos. Además, la sociología crítica de la educación (M. W. Apple 1986, 1993) ha puesto de manifiesto el currículo oculto de los libros de texto, en el sentido de que transmiten casi siempre las ideas dominantes sobre cuáles deben ser los contenidos legítimos (tanto conceptos como actitudes y valores) que se han de transmitir en nuestras sociedades.

    Desde otro punto de vista, T. Hutchinson y E. Torres (1994), en lugar de considerar el libro de texto como un obstáculo en la enseñanza-aprendizaje o un elemento poco flexible para la marcha docente, lo conciben como «un marco o guía» que ayuda a los estudiantes a organizar su aprendizaje tanto dentro como fuera de clase. Para los profesores, el libro de texto constituye un material que hace la enseñanza más fácil, más organizada, más adecuada: proporciona confianza y seguridad. Consideran que los argumentos contra el libro de texto están basados en valores culturales e ideológicos, que no encajan con las necesidades reales de los usuarios. Aún más, según estos lingüistas, «ninguna situación de enseñanza-aprendizaje es completa hasta que tiene su libro de texto relevante», por lo que este tipo de material se convierte en una herramienta didáctica fundamental en situaciones de renovación pedagógica o de cambio teórico.

    En la elección de un libro de texto para la enseñanza-aprendizaje de lenguas, resulta útil considerar distintas variables (cfr. Atienza 1994, Lomas 2004). En relación con el libro del profesor, a efectos prácticos es muy conveniente observar los siguientes aspectos:

    Conexión entre teoría y práctica, entre enfoque y método seguido: el libro justifica teóricamente las opciones prácticas adoptadas y se explicitan las relaciones existentes entre los aspectos teóricos y los prácticos.
    Fomento de la autonomía docente: los autores del libro indican cómo han procedido en su elaboración, cuáles han sido los problemas suscitados para establecer la conexión entre teoría y práctica, qué han hecho para abordarlos, qué creen haber resuelto y qué aspectos piensan que han dejado abiertos; según los autores de los libros, se manifiesta qué ha funcionado y qué no en la práctica, y las razones.
    Explicitación del currículo: el libro especifica qué objetivos se pretenden alcanzar y qué contenidos son objeto de aprendizaje en cada una de las actividades; se establecen además criterios de evaluación prefijados y/o negociados y los procedimientos y actividades de evaluación los respetan.
    Manifestación de la estructura y progresión didáctica: el libro explica qué organización presenta y por qué; indica los criterios que determinan la secuenciación de los contenidos y se explicita su progresión.
    Instrucciones y muestras detalladas: el libro indica el modo de utilizarlo y de actuar en cada actividad y las razones para ello, siempre que no sean obvias. Aparecen transcripciones de los textos auditivos que contenga el libro del alumno, claves de respuestas, etc. Relaciona convenientemente el libro de trabajo en el aula del estudiante y el de ejercicios complementarios, si fuera el caso.
    En cuanto al libro del alumno, los aspectos a los que conviene atender son los siguientes:

    Adecuación al contexto de aprendizaje: el libro se adecua a las características de los alumnos a los que se dirige y explicita cuáles son los elementos clave de esa adecuación; propone recorridos diversos según intereses, niveles, estrategias, estilos cognitivos de los alumnos y, en general, según sus distintas necesidades.
    Aprendizaje significativo y autónomo: el libro propone actividades de toma de conciencia de los conocimientos previos de los alumnos y de anclaje de los nuevos conocimientos en los anteriores; propone fases de negociación (al menos inicial) de las actividades, objetivos y contenidos de la unidad y de otros aspectos del desarrollo de la clase; las tareas que se piden a los alumnos tienen una viabilidad práctica, a corto o medio plazo al menos; plantea además actividades que atiendan a la autonomía del aprendiente y ayuden al aprendizaje de la misma.
    Fomento de la metacognición: el libro no solo se presenta como un proyecto de acción sino que también incluye datos sobre la observación de, y la reflexión sobre, la acción; indica los procedimientos empleados para observar el desarrollo y eficacia de la propuesta y de cada uno de sus momentos, que impliquen a alumnos y profesor; propone actividades de reflexión de los alumnos sobre los conocimientos adquiridos, el recorrido realizado, los procesos seguidos.
    Tener en cuenta estos parámetros, entre otros, para la elección de un libro de texto ayuda a valorar el grado de intervención y renovación que el libro permite al docente y sus alumnos; de este modo, puede llegar a convertirse en un estímulo para la autonomía profesional del primero, y en un facilitador del aprendizaje de los segundos.

      Hey guys.

      Me and my colleague are always discussing many different IDE’s and text editors. I am a big sublime text fan, and he pretty much hates everything. One of the problems we had with sublime text is that it’s really slow at loading very big files. Our example use-case was opening a 50MB .sql file. In my opinion this is not a valid usecase for a text editor but according to him it is.

      Other editors seem to load the file withing a few seconds. For example: EditPlus and SciTE (based on scintilla). What is the reason sublime text is so slow with large files? Any information that could add to this discussion is welcome.

      Thanks for your time.

      NarretzApr 2013
      AFAIR it has to do with the symbol indexing Sublime does when loading a file. Loading is faster in ST3, have you tried that?

      wbondApr 2013
      Yes, what Narretz says is true. I believe Jon significantly improved the performance for large files if you switch to “Plain Text” syntax in ST3 so that it does not need to use regex (that is what syntax defs use) to parse the file.

      qgatesApr 2013
      I believe it is mostly to do with syntax colouring. Sublime along with textmate are both particularly sophisticated in this area, allowing things like context specific colouration / syntax selection. Both are slow with large files, due to their heavy dependence on regexs. In addition, Sublime has the minimap which requires everything to be coloured correctly in realtime, making lazy colouring more difficult. Large edits on large colourised files will be particularly slow, as will undos, and large amounts of multi-cursor edits will exaggerate things. Forcing sublime to turn off colourisers with “plain text” should speed things up alot.

      Sublime 3 has improved in this area, though it would be nice to be able to disable colouring by default in certain situations (per session ie. View.. disable auto colourising) or to make this a setting available as either a global, per-project or per-file setting. Rather than doing it “after the fact”.

      I wonder if S3 has moved to doing this on a background thread (or will), so you can get working with your large files right away while the thread parsers through and applies the colouring. From what I’ve gleaned, the symbol indexing thing only happens when folders are added to the project, so this shouldn’t be an issue if the project’s empty.

      unphasedFeb 2014
      There should be a simple configuration option (an integer number of bytes. Say, 10*1024*1024 or 10MB) which either controls whether a file above that size will not have syntax regexes applied, or for which all files only get syntax regexes run over that initial segment of the file. So say you have a 30MB file with this setting, only the first third of the file gets highlighted.

      I have already noticed a limit of this sort which ST3 applies to very very long lines. It will refuse to syntax highlight lines that are longer than some particular length. This may or may not be limited to XML files which was what I noticed this on first. We need only to extend this concept to the lines of the file itself.

      Just loaded a 500MB file to check — 50s by stopwatch (with human error on start/stop time, of course), with no indication what’s going on that I can see. Tolerable but not great. Less is instant, and Atom crashes, by comparison. Could be better, could be worse.

      diathesisOct 2016
      On a 50MB file, Atom is actually slightly faster, and does warn about the large file, so you have some idea of what’s happening.

      qgatesOct 2016
      Something I need to do now and then is make S&R changes to SQL files for databases generated by CMS’s like Joomla and WordPress. Both PhpMyAdmin and MySQL dump generate SQL files with long lines (sometimes over 1000 characters); I had to edit one today and this is where Sublime struggles.

      On such files, Sublime becomes quite unresponsive, with a noticeable delay / high CPU when moving the cursor around, paging up/down through the file etc. I’m running a powerful machine here, so I can only imagine how bad this would be on a more ‘typical’ i5 or core2 laptop.

      I do feel that this needs attention in Sublime. Today I got by, but there are times when this is a showstopper and most other pay-for professional editors have no issue handling either very large files or files with long lines. Doubtlessly this is down to the editing engine design but I’d love to see some work on the core to improve this.

      Do you have wordwrap turned on? If so, that can cause a huge difference. With a large file containing hundreds of thousands to millions of lines, each line has to be checked to see if wrapping will happen and how it will affect the current viewport into the file. Without wrapping turned on, the viewport offset is much simpler to calculate.

      “on_new” is often called before the file is done loading so it might work.

      EDIT: I meant “on_activated_async”

      addons_zzNov 2016 diathesis
      Very bad things to do:

      Do not warm the user.
      Do not show a loading progress bar.
      Do not allow to cancel the operation, if not kill the the whole process.
      If sublime just freezes, it means the work is being done on the main GUI thread. I am not saying to spam a new thread when opening a new file, just call one dedicated thread to perform secondary operations.

      qgatesNov 2016 wbond
      No, word wrap is off. With wrap on it’s completely unusable. I am aware of the tricks needed to make sublime more bearable with large files / long lines, like turning wrap off, switching to plain text (no syntax colouring), turn off ‘highlight matches’ for search etc. It’s usable but sluggish, and the bigger the file / longer the lines, the worse things get.

      The best solution would be to rework the editing or rendering core somewhat as my suspicion is that the issues lie there but in the absence of that, progress bars, warnings and opportunities to cancel anything that’s taking too long would be a definite plus.

      I wonder, is there any chance that this will get some attention? It’s really frustrating!!

      There is definitely a progress bar built in when loading large files. Are you using the default theme?

      Generally there is a lot of the editor that is implemented to make it a good code editor. Text has to be split into tokens to allow keyboard navigation, highlighting, indexing, symbol list, word wrapping, etc. Rewriting all of that so that it is possible to disable the majority of built-in functionality for the sake of opening a 500MB file seems to me like a generally unproductive use of time, in the grand scheme of all of the things that could use improvement and bug fixes. Plus, I imagine different users have a different idea of what functionality is essential that they would want preserved when editing a large file.

      Eclipse IDE asks the user whether they want to disable all extra features as syntax highlight, word-wrap and etc, before opening a big file. So the user may choose whether to wait more and get all features, or open early with no extra features. Sublime could do the same.

      Yeah, Sublime text has a loading bar, I tested opening 1GB file, and it allowed to cancel closing the file hitting by ctrl+w.

      7
      For 1GB file, it required a little more than 1GB of RAM’s Memory. But right after filling the progress bar, Sublime Text hanged for 20 some seconds. Then after it became responsive, I tried to interact with the file and Sublime Text hanged using all its CPU.

      For now, 5 minutes has passed and it still hanging, so I am killing the process. This 5 minutes hang after opened the file is because of issue #1463 Packages are allowed to hang Sublime Text Indefinitely5.

      Because when I did the same on a Vanilla Install, Sublime Text only hanged for 20 seconds right after the loading bar got filled. After it It was completely responsive! Good work. Now we know Sublime Text may handle 1GB files, but only the Vanilla version, because if there are more packages installed, they will hang Sublime Text due the issue #1463 Packages are allowed to hang Sublime Text Indefinitely5.

      I try to write a plugin to improve this:

      MAX_SIZE = 1e6

      class OpenBigFileListener(sublime_plugin.EventListener):

      def on_activated_async(self, view):
      file_name = view.file_name()
      if not file_name:
      return

      size = os.stat(file_name).st_size
      print(‘File’, view.file_name(), ‘has a size of’, size / 1000, ‘Kb’)
      if(size > MAX_SIZE and view.is_loading()):
      view.set_syntax_file(‘Packages/Text/Plain text.tmLanguage’)
      settings = view.settings()
      settings.set(‘word_wrap’, False)
      But it seems the syntax is changed back to the original syntax after loading.

      One of the things I’ve seen in other editors is a “fallback mode” paired with clever windowing on syntax highlighting. Procedurally, the editor starts by using the fallback mode to highlight the file. Fallback modes are not allowed to have context, their regular expressions must be free of all backtracking, and everything has to be line-bounded. Basically, it’s simple tokenization and nothing more (note that this will mishandle tons of common constructs, including multi-line strings).

      Then the editor attempts to refine the fallback mode with the main mode, but bounding as much as possible within the active view subset of the file (plus/minus some reasonable expected scrolling). With modes that have neatly-closing contexts, this actually works out fairly well. For example, imagine the active view is in the middle of a class body, with the class starting just above the view and ending just below. The class body will pop most of the active contexts off the stack, and you’ll end up with just source.whatever. You can defer applying the full highlighting to the text above and below the view. There are clever ways to extend this to certain forms of contexts as well (e.g. situations where you don’t have things neatly popped off above and below), but you get the idea.

      The main thing you lose here is symbol indexing, since you can’t ever fully-contextualize the entire file. I don’t think that would be a surprising loss for most people, especially if it is accompanied by a warning (e.g. a banner at the top of the view, indicating that limited highlighting is in effect, with an option to turn on full highlighting at the cost of performance). You do get to keep the minimap, which is sort of fun, though it will have limited accuracy outside the current view (and for that reason, it might be better to disable it on such files).

      Obviously, this is certainly a significant amount of work that may not have value, and might even (depending on implementation) require backward-compatible changes to modes to work optimally. But it does allow for opening and editing enormously large files.

      djspiewak:
      Fallback modes are not allowed to have context, their regular expressions must be free of all backtracking, and everything has to be line-bounded.
      We already have most of this by default. Granted, syntax definitions may still use backtracking, but it’s much slower and there are tests to ensure your syntax definition does not contain backtracking expressions.

      Although contexts may span multiple lines, I doubt it impacts performance much since the overall work done is still very similar and the entire file is almost never re-tokenized entirely after it has been once due to smart caching.

      Edit: The one thing ST wouldn’t be able to do currently is start lexing in the middle of the file for the first time. It must load and tokenize the entire file first before caching can help.

      There is a progress bar when loading, but anything that may be time consuming to the point of locking up Sublime has neither progress indication nor the facility to abort.

      I have worked on editor codebases in the past (most of my development life is C/C++) so I understand the complexities involved generally. Obviously, I can’t comment on Sublime as I have no knowledge of its design or implementation. I can’t be the only programmer / technical user that needs to work on large files or files with long lines, and the fact is I can’t use Sublime for many of these tasks. Moreover, I can work on same with almost any other half decent editor. Falling back to another editor isn’t the end of the world, but is nonetheless frustrating.

      Apart from anything else, it just doesn’t look good. Sublime is sold as a general purpose, high performance editor, but starts to feel flaky when you throw something substantial at it. I don’t share your view that addressing such issues would be a waste of time: making the editor robust under all circumstances shores up its reputation as the first choice in high performance, powerful editors for all tasks. Case in point: Photoshop. It doesn’t break when you load up huge images. It feels robust. It warns you when something’s going to take time and doesn’t lock up. It’s UI rarely falters or gets ‘slow’. Ergo, the go-to tool for pretty much anyone needing to edit images professionally.

      Don’t misunderstand me, this isn’t a rant: I love Sublime and continue to use it daily. But the value proposition is problematic for some when they have to switch between numerous editors for no good reason. We all want Sublime to improve and I see this as one of its limitations. Admittedly one that may not be the most straightforward to fix.

      wbondNov 2016
      I think this issue needs some more specification. Right now what I am hearing is that large file handling is completely broken, whereas that feels to me (based on my experience) like a little bit of hyperbole. Certainly there are areas that could be improved, but let’s identify some specifics so we can move the conversation forward.

      I should note I am using a 2.3GHz rMBP from 2013 with 16GB of ram and an SSD.

      I just opened a 5GB PostgreSQL dump with 45M lines. It took a while to load and tokenize from disk. There was a progress bar and a way to abort.

      Hangs I experienced:

      After the file was loaded from disk (1-2 min?) Sublime Text became unresponsive for about 20s
      When changing from word wrap mode to non-word wrap mode there was a hang
      Trying to apply the SQL syntax (my machine paused Sublime Text after memory was exhausted)
      Otherwise (with Plain Text syntax) I was able to scroll effortlessly through all 45M lines and move the cursor around without any lag whatsoever. This was true with word wrap on, also. Sublime Text was using around 10GB of memory.

      Perhaps the solution is:

      Figure out the lag after the file is loaded
      Prevent anything but Plain Text syntax for 100MB+ files, and disallow word wrap (just to prevent the lag of switching it)
      Currently there isn’t a way to detach the display of the file with the in-memory representation. When a syntax is applied, the file must be retokenized and have scopes applied. It would probably make sense to trigger a progress bar here. Without doubling memory usage, it wouldn’t really be possible to keep the old tokenization in-memory, so canceling would have to retokenize with the Plain Text syntax.

      Are there other situations where you see Sublime Text hanging that aren’t caused by a third-party package? I’ve seen mention of ST being unresponsive navigating a SQL dump. Perhaps someone has some SQL dumps they are experiencing lag with that I can look at? Are you moving the cursor around, or typing? Are you typing a character such as a double or single quote when you experience the lag?

      For a 24MB SQL file loading happened in < 1s and applying the SQL syntax happened in under 2s (with a hang). There were 84k lines, with many over 1000 chars long. Editing was perfectly fluid.

      IMHO, I think this is an issue but not one that too much time and effort should be spent on. ST is aimed squarely at devs and coders and most source files are small. The huge files we are talking about are likely logs or data dumps. It's mainly the inconvience of having to open another editor, or accidentally opening a huge file and have it hang ST.

      With that in mind, I think it's enough for ST to fall back into some "safe" mode, no syntax coloring or word wrap, and perhaps no packages outside of the defaults. You can add a view.is_safe_mode() method to let plugins know if safe mode is active and decide whether they want to run, or perhaps you can require plugins to declare themselves okay to run in safe mode somehow, meaning plugins are not safe by default.

      And of course user can set a size threshold to trigger safe mode, and manually force normal mode when needed.

      barth:

      Packages are loaded into the plugin host, so it won't be possible to disable them for a specific view. It would require either another sheet type where various API features were not available, or some sort of opt-in system where plugins would choose not to operate on large files. The later option likely wouldn't do much, and the former would require a bunch of work to interact with the current API in a way that didn't lead to lots of Python errors.

      Ok, so "hyperbole" aside – no offense taken 😉 – there are really two issues here:

      Big files
      Long lines
      SQL files have a habit of fitting into both categories, but there are any number of file types, which may or may not be used by programmers, sysadmins, researchers etc. that could be either or both.

      Considering long lines, easier to demonstrate and the more pressing issue personally, we really don't need a 500M file as @wbond put it to see usability going south (although, 500M really isn't all that big these days?!) A 1M file will suffice for the purpose of illustration…

      So creating a 1M 'lorem ipsum' on 1 line, Sublime text 3 portable build 3083, no plugins. I observe the following:

      A. Word wrap off, 'Plain text' syntax mode, Find 'highlight matches' disabled:

      'Phase' cursor pulsing animation is jerky and not smooth
      CPU is at 25% on my quad-core system running at 3.5Ghz when idling
      All UI interaction with the keyboard is laggy and slow, even interacting with popups. Cursoring right a 0.5-1 second pause before the cursor reacts.
      Highlighting 'sit' and pressing Alt+F3 to highlight all copies (3000) freezes sublime for 5 seconds. Trying to move or type with these multicursors takes 5-7 seconds per keystroke. Phase cursor animation has almost completely stopped.
      B. Word wrap on, 'Plain text' syntax mode, Find 'highlight matches' disabled:

      Cursor pulsing as expected
      CPU is 1-2% when idling
      UI interaction within acceptable parameters (no noticeable delays)
      Highlighting 'sit' and pressing Alt+F3 takes 2 seconds. Once all copies are highlighted cursor pulsing animation has almost completely stopped. CPU use is at 25% while idling. Cursoring right takes 2s before the UI reacts
      Just viewing, scrolling and cursoring, let along performing edits in scenario (A) above is painful. And in many cases, when trying to do more sophisticated operations, Sublime will crash completely. Scenario (B) is more usable, but the moment we do anything with multicursors things get similarly bad.

      Curiously, the situation with word wrap off seems much worse; Given that most of what's going on is outside the viewport rendering area (even for the minimap) it appears that either Sublime is rendering everything all the time (without optimising for things that aren't visible like cursors) or the data representation of editing objects could use some tuning. The irony being that with word wrap on, there is more visible rendering, especially with the minimap enabled. In both A/B cases, it feels like there's room for improvement and optimisation.

      In real world files, we may have many lines which are 100K+ in addition to many more short lines, and the situation is worse. Even with syntax colouring switched off, such files are a real PITA to view and edit with Sublime and your fingers are nervously hovering the keyboard in case something you do is going to hang or crash Sublime. By contrast, Crisp, Notepad++, Codewright, UltraEdit, VIM, gedit and have no such issues, and only start to feel the strain when files/lines get huge by today's standards.

      Build 3083 is a pretty old build, is there a reason you picked that over 3126?

      I'm not seeing the issues your are describing in situation A with build 3126 when I have a single line file with 1M characters on a single line. Cursors movement is ever-so-sightly slower than a source code file, but CPU usage is 4% on my 2.3GHz laptop. I also able to use multiple cursors.

      For me it starts getting laggy when I have a 4MB file with 50kb lines. It seems that long lines are truly the issue here.

      qgatesNov 2016 1
      Build 3083 is just what I had to hand. I just tried a portable 3126 Win x64 and although the performance is slightly better in broad brush it's much the same. The whole UI becomes unresponsive, UI responses to keystrokes measureable in seconds and seems to use a core's worth of CPU in situation A pretty much all the time.

      Must confess that my 1M file is actually 1.3M. I didn't realise but I'd pasted a few extra 'lorem ipsums' in my haste 😉 But I don't see anything like the performance you're seeing, neither on my Q9xx overclocked desktop, nor on my i5 3.4Ghz Lenovo T530 laptop.

      And you are right, whether it's one long line (1.3M in this case) or lots of long-ish lines as you suggest, performance degrades about the same. A big file with lots of 20kb lines (say, with the long lines totalling 1M+) exhibits the same behaviour, with the performance degrading linearly to the point of being unusable as the file includes more long lines.

      Though I haven't done any deeper tests yet, performance in scenario B seems to be better in terms of idling, scrolling, and simple cursor movement/inserts. But for deeper edits it gets just as bad as (A). For example, selecting 'sit' and Alt+F3 (selecting around 3000 copies), cursoring right and typing 1 letter caused Sublime to crash. Repeating the exercise, Sublime hung for 2 minutes and finally came back with the inserted letter.

      Hi,
      so any news about this? Tried latest 3126 and tried to open a 500 mb log file. It took very long to open. Suggestion would be here to read only the first X MB and already show the contents. Then load more on demand when the user scrolls down or scrolls down implicitly by searching.

      That would be a good improvement (at least for me).

      Performance improvement when editing/searching in the whole file (auto select found positions) – I would see in a second step. I wonder how others solved this (i.e. UltraEdit)

      wbondDec 2016
      mstein:
      so any news about this?
      No, not currently.

      From my understanding of the codebase (which is still relatively shallow due to the sheer size), the ideas that have been suggested about partial loading go against the grain of the current implementation. Many of the existing features and built-in implementation assumptions were developed with the entire token list being in memory.

      Generally using the Plain Text syntax and turning word wrapping off helps since it causes there less work to do.

      Right now I think this (using Sublime Text as a log viewer) is just lower priority that many of the bug fixes and tweaks that are outstanding for code and prose usage.

    Oui, vraiment. A des années-lumière du Djent et du Core, dans les forêts du nord de l’Europe, existent des styles beaucoup plus ténébreux, comme le black metal. Et pourtant ce n’est pas en Suède ou en Norvège que ce groupe a été déniché, mais un poil plus au Sud, dans le pays du thrash, de l’industriel et du metalcore : l’Allemagne. Le black rebute nombre de personnes par sa violence, son côté cru, noir, sombre, haineux. Mais tout cela a un avantage non-négligeable : l’authenticité. C’est le maître mot du black metal dépressif. L’extrême de l’extrême. Pourtant, avant 1996, et ce Dictius Te Necare, Bethlehem ne pratiquait pas ce style. Pour preuve, son opus précédent s’appelait sobrement… Dark Metal. Un revirement de situation total ou partiel qui s’accompagne d’un changement de chanteur. Exit Andreas Classen, Willkommen Reiner Landfermann. Et c’est en lui que réside tout le secret et l’intérêt de cet album. C’est lui-même qui fait de ce deuxième skeud un OVNI total dans la discographie des Allemands et un chef d’œuvre sans nom qui traversera les temps du black metal pour les décennies à venir. Au même titre qu’un Filosofem de Burzum, un De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas de Mayhem, ou un Under A Funeral Moon de Darkthrone. Le pire c’est que Landfermann ne restera que le temps de cet album et s’en ira juste après. Ou comment se retirer après le sentiment d’une satisfaction et d’un travail propre et sans bavure.

    Tout d’abord, il est extrêmement important de préciser qu’on a devant nous, un album-hommage. Dictius Te Necare (dont la signification en latin est « Vous devez vous suicider ») a été écrit dans un but d’exutoire, tout comme le groupe Bethlehem en lui-même. Contre quoi ? Revenons un instant sur l’histoire d’un groupe qui n’aurait peut-être pas existé sans les évènements tragiques qu’ont connus les deux gratteux Matton et Bartsch, les deux membres fondateurs. Accrochez-vous. Le père de Matton s’est tout d’abord suicidé par pendaison, avant que sa mère ne meurt, peu de temps après, d’un cancer. En ce qui concerne Bartsch, hormis le fait qu’il ait perdu une bonne majorité de ses amis, dont dix de ses meilleurs amis, en raison de suicides, il a également du décrocher sa petite amie enceinte des vêtements qui lui ont servi à se pendre. Tout cela l’a – et ça peut se comprendre – rendu addictif aux drogues et il a néanmoins réussi à remonter la pente petit à petit, notamment par le biais ce de projet musical dans lequel les membres peuvent déverser tous les sentiments négatifs qui les entravaient. Ai-je précisé que l’ancien chanteur s’est également suicidé après avoir été éjecté du groupe ? C’est donc dans un contexte assez délicat et sombre que cet opus voit le jour et c’est toute cette atmosphère que le groupe tenter de retranscrire à travers celui-ci. Et pour cet exorcisme, la recette est assez « simple ».

    Elle est même évidente, l’élément principal étant, sans aucun conteste possible, la voix du nouvel arrivant, Reiner Landfermann. Une voix ? Que dis-je, c’est un euphémisme ! A l’image d’un Nattramn de Silencer, ou d’un Graph Von Baphomet de Psychonaut 4, on dirait que Reiner éructe sous la torture. Sa voix rauque, cassée, éraillée, ébréchée prend atrocement à la gorge et nous transperce littéralement. Il nous en fait d’ailleurs part dès les premières millisecondes du disque (“Schatten Aus Der Alexander Welt”). Premiers sursauts, premières frayeurs. Si vous n’êtes pas préparés, le choc risque d’être violent. Tantôt le vocaliste gémit, tantôt il est à la limite des pleurs (“Tagebuch Einer Totgeburt”), tantôt on se croirait enfermé avec lui dans un cachot lointain (“Verheißung – Du Krone Des Todeskultes”). Mais n’allez pas croire que son registre s’arrête là. Il sait aussi adopter une voix plus grave par moments (“Schatten Aus Der Alexander Welt”). A vrai dire, on ne peut guère qualifier sa performance de « chant », puisqu’il n’y a pas de véritable intonation dans ce qu’il scande. On a plus à faire à un dialogue à voix haute avec l’auditeur et l’on assiste même parfois à des chuchotements (fin de “Verheißung – Du Krone Des Todeskultes”). Une chose est sûre, et incontestable : l’allemand est la meilleure langue pour un album de cette trempe. La langue de Goethe sied à merveille tant elle allie brutalité et dureté. Même pour les non-germanophiles, il n’est pas difficile de comprendre et ressentir le message que veulent faire passer les Teutons.

    Ce n’est donc pas une grande surprise de découvrir que les paroles sont hantées par la mort. L’abordant sous pas mal d’aspects, comme dans “Tagebuch Einer Totgeburt” qui est sûrement une référence et un hommage à l’ancienne petite amie de Bartsch, on découvre également des pensées nihilistes sur “Verheißung – Du Krone Des Todeskultes” et des thèmes volontairement plus mystérieux et ésotériques sur une grande partie de l’album. La chanson d’ouverture est un bon exemple de la folie dont le groupe est victime. « Der Alexander Welt » ne représenterait ni plus ni moins que le subconscient de Bartsch. La chanson serait donc quant à elle, un récit à la troisième personne de ce dernier. . . Et dans toute cette démence, surgit le bijou envoûtant et malsain. La chanson complètement à part, qui justifie à elle seule l’écoute de cet album. “Tagebuch Einer Totgeburt” commence par un petit riff mélancolique à souhait. Puis se fait entendre la voix stridente, perçant nos tympans et prenant aux tripes, au cœur, aux intestins et au cerveau. Après avoir joué l’alternance entre moments calmes, pendant lesquels on ressent une multitude d’émotions, et des moments plus rapides qui nous malmènent, la fin nous envoie dans les profondeurs et les tréfonds de l’âme la plus noire. Comme une drogue, on devient irrémédiablement accro à ce noir délice et on en redemande, car on ne se peut se délecter suffisamment des sensations que procure cette sombre pièce. Inimitable.

    En revanche du côté de l’imitation, on sent quelques influences. Et pas des moindres ! Les précurseurs du genre dark metal, Dissection et leur album The Somberlain, ont dû bercer quelques sombres nuits des membres du groupe ! Tout comme Varg Vikernes et son époque Det Som En Gang Var que l’on perçoit bien dans “Dorn Meiner Allmacht” et “Die Anarchische Befreiung Der Augenzeugenreligion” et dans leurs passages un peu plus lents et planants, à la limite du doom. Tiens d’ailleurs, le style si cher à notre ami Droom est omniprésent dans la dernière citée et ses neuf minutes. Associé à des samples de remous de marée, l’indolence des guitares vous emportera dans un monde assez malsain, tout comme les arpèges et le riff final de “Aphel – Die Schwarze Schlange” qui suscite une ambiance désenchantée. “Dorn Meiner Allmacht” balance même des tempos associables à une marche militaire. Ou plutôt une lente marche funeste. C’est pourquoi la présence de claviers est un plus non-négligeable ! Aussi bien sous la forme d’un piano lancinant que d’un synthétiseur type orgue majestueux (“Verschleierte Irreligiosität”, “Dorn Meiner Allmacht”), il sera d’un grand effet sur vous. C’est ce qui participe activement au côté déprimant, triste et ensorcelant du groupe. Côté que l’on peut appeler « dark » et qui n’est pas forcément lié à la musique en elle-même, mais à l’ambiance dégagé par le disque.

    A côté de ça, on trouve bien évidemment le côté « black ». Le côté qui délivre avec plaisir des riffs diaboliques, tout droit sortis du Tartare ! Le titre étiqueté le plus black de l’album est sans aucun doute le très rapide “Verschleierte Irreligiosität”, qui est loin d’être excellent, mais la piste d’ouverture ainsi que “Aphel – Die Schwarze Schlange” ne sont pas en reste. Parfois, la recette est assez élémentaire pour suffire à nous entrainer, comme en témoignent les riffs plus que simples de “Verheißung – Du Krone Des Todeskultes”. Et oui, les artistes black n’ont pas besoin de posséder une grosse qualité technique pour nous conquérir. Et surtout, ils ont encore moins besoin de jouir d’une qualité de production hors-norme. C’est même tout l’inverse. Dans Dictius Te Necare, le son est ultra typé old-school (normal me direz-vous pour un album d’une vingtaine d’années déjà). Cette sonorité un minimum crasseuse avec ces quelques grésillements de guitares. Volontairement impropre, il nous enfouit dans un bourbier dont on a du mal à s’extirper. Et heureusement, car c’est tout l’ambiguité de cet album et de ce type de metal. On a envie de sombrer avec les compositeurs, pour ressentir au mieux leur travail. Travail de libération en soi, mais qui peut vous faire basculer dans une profonde psychose et dépression dans une mauvaise période de votre vie. A consommer avec modération donc, mais avec délectation. Un peu comme un rhum, trente ans d’âge.

    Dictius Te Necare est clairement à rapprocher de Death – Pierce Me de Silencer et Dipsomania de Psychonaut 4 au niveau de l’émotion procurée par la voix. Bien sûr, les deux formations citées se sont forcément inspirées des Allemands car, avec cet album, ceux-ci viennent de s’inscrire dans la durée et de marquer le genre du black dépressif. Comme quoi, il n’y a pas que le djent dans la vie.

Et pourtant ce n’est pas en Suède ou en Norvège que ce groupe a été déniché, mais un poil plus au Sud, dans le pays du thrash, de l’industriel et du metalcore : l’Allemagne. Le black rebute nombre de personnes par sa violence, son côté cru, noir, sombre, haineux. Mais tout cela a un avantage non-négligeable : l’authenticité. C’est le maître mot du black metal dépressif. L’extrême de l’extrême. Pourtant, avant 1996, et ce Dictius Te Necare, Bethlehem ne pratiquait pas ce style. Pour preuve, son opus précédent s’appelait sobrement… Dark Metal. Un revirement de situation total ou partiel qui s’accompagne d’un changement de chanteur. Exit Andreas Classen, Willkommen Reiner Landfermann. Et c’est en lui que réside tout le secret et l’intérêt de cet album. C’est lui-même qui fait de ce deuxième skeud un OVNI total dans la discographie des Allemands et un chef d’œuvre sans nom qui traversera les temps du black metal pour les décennies à venir. Au même titre qu’un Filosofem de Burzum, un De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas de Mayhem, ou un Under A Funeral Moon de Darkthrone. Le pire c’est que Landfermann ne restera que le temps de cet album et s’en ira juste après. Ou comment se retirer après le sentiment d’une satisfaction et d’un travail propre et sans bavure.

    Tout d’abord, il est extrêmement important de préciser qu’on a devant nous, un album-hommage. Dictius Te Necare (dont la signification en latin est « Vous devez vous suicider ») a été écrit dans un but d’exutoire, tout comme le groupe Bethlehem en lui-même. Contre quoi ? Revenons un instant sur l’histoire d’un groupe qui n’aurait peut-être pas existé sans les évènements tragiques qu’ont connus les deux gratteux Matton et Bartsch, les deux membres fondateurs. Accrochez-vous. Le père de Matton s’est tout d’abord suicidé par pendaison, avant que sa mère ne meurt, peu de temps après, d’un cancer. En ce qui concerne Bartsch, hormis le fait qu’il ait perdu une bonne majorité de ses amis, dont dix de ses meilleurs amis, en raison de suicides, il a également du décrocher sa petite amie enceinte des vêtements qui lui ont servi à se pendre. Tout cela l’a – et ça peut se comprendre – rendu addictif aux drogues et il a néanmoins réussi à remonter la pente petit à petit, notamment par le biais ce de projet musical dans lequel les membres peuvent déverser tous les sentiments négatifs qui les entravaient. Ai-je précisé que l’ancien chanteur s’est également suicidé après avoir été éjecté du groupe ? C’est donc dans un contexte assez délicat et sombre que cet opus voit le jour et c’est toute cette atmosphère que le groupe tenter de retranscrire à travers celui-ci. Et pour cet exorcisme, la recette est assez « simple ».

    Elle est même évidente, l’élément principal étant, sans aucun conteste possible, la voix du nouvel arrivant, Reiner Landfermann. Une voix ? Que dis-je, c’est un euphémisme ! A l’image d’un Nattramn de Silencer, ou d’un Graph Von Baphomet de Psychonaut 4, on dirait que Reiner éructe sous la torture. Sa voix rauque, cassée, éraillée, ébréchée prend atrocement à la gorge et nous transperce littéralement. Il nous en fait d’ailleurs part dès les premières millisecondes du disque (“Schatten Aus Der Alexander Welt”). Premiers sursauts, premières frayeurs. Si vous n’êtes pas préparés, le choc risque d’être violent. Tantôt le vocaliste gémit, tantôt il est à la limite des pleurs (“Tagebuch Einer Totgeburt”), tantôt on se croirait enfermé avec lui dans un cachot lointain (“Verheißung – Du Krone Des Todeskultes”). Mais n’allez pas croire que son registre s’arrête là. Il sait aussi adopter une voix plus grave par moments (“Schatten Aus Der Alexander Welt”). A vrai dire, on ne peut guère qualifier sa performance de « chant », puisqu’il n’y a pas de véritable intonation dans ce qu’il scande. On a plus à faire à un dialogue à voix haute avec l’auditeur et l’on assiste même parfois à des chuchotements (fin de “Verheißung – Du Krone Des Todeskultes”). Une chose est sûre, et incontestable : l’allemand est la meilleure langue pour un album de cette trempe. La langue de Goethe sied à merveille tant elle allie brutalité et dureté. Même pour les non-germanophiles, il n’est pas difficile de comprendre et ressentir le message que veulent faire passer les Teutons.

    Ce n’est donc pas une grande surprise de découvrir que les paroles sont hantées par la mort. L’abordant sous pas mal d’aspects, comme dans “Tagebuch Einer Totgeburt” qui est sûrement une référence et un hommage à l’ancienne petite amie de Bartsch, on découvre également des pensées nihilistes sur “Verheißung – Du Krone Des Todeskultes” et des thèmes volontairement plus mystérieux et ésotériques sur une grande partie de l’album. La chanson d’ouverture est un bon exemple de la folie dont le groupe est victime. « Der Alexander Welt » ne représenterait ni plus ni moins que le subconscient de Bartsch. La chanson serait donc quant à elle, un récit à la troisième personne de ce dernier. . . Et dans toute cette démence, surgit le bijou envoûtant et malsain. La chanson complètement à part, qui justifie à elle seule l’écoute de cet album. “Tagebuch Einer Totgeburt” commence par un petit riff mélancolique à souhait. Puis se fait entendre la voix stridente, perçant nos tympans et prenant aux tripes, au cœur, aux intestins et au cerveau. Après avoir joué l’alternance entre moments calmes, pendant lesquels on ressent une multitude d’émotions, et des moments plus rapides qui nous malmènent, la fin nous envoie dans les profondeurs et les tréfonds de l’âme la plus noire. Comme une drogue, on devient irrémédiablement accro à ce noir délice et on en redemande, car on ne se peut se délecter suffisamment des sensations que procure cette sombre pièce. Inimitable.

    En revanche du côté de l’imitation, on sent quelques influences. Et pas des moindres ! Les précurseurs du genre dark metal, Dissection et leur album The Somberlain, ont dû bercer quelques sombres nuits des membres du groupe ! Tout comme Varg Vikernes et son époque Det Som En Gang Var que l’on perçoit bien dans “Dorn Meiner Allmacht” et “Die Anarchische Befreiung Der Augenzeugenreligion” et dans leurs passages un peu plus lents et planants, à la limite du doom. Tiens d’ailleurs, le style si cher à notre ami Droom est omniprésent dans la dernière citée et ses neuf minutes. Associé à des samples de remous de marée, l’indolence des guitares vous emportera dans un monde assez malsain, tout comme les arpèges et le riff final de “Aphel – Die Schwarze Schlange” qui suscite une ambiance désenchantée. “Dorn Meiner Allmacht” balance même des tempos associables à une marche militaire. Ou plutôt une lente marche funeste. C’est pourquoi la présence de claviers est un plus non-négligeable ! Aussi bien sous la forme d’un piano lancinant que d’un synthétiseur type orgue majestueux (“Verschleierte Irreligiosität”, “Dorn Meiner Allmacht”), il sera d’un grand effet sur vous. C’est ce qui participe activement au côté déprimant, triste et ensorcelant du groupe. Côté que l’on peut appeler « dark » et qui n’est pas forcément lié à la musique en elle-même, mais à l’ambiance dégagé par le disque.

    A côté de ça, on trouve bien évidemment le côté « black ». Le côté qui délivre avec plaisir des riffs diaboliques, tout droit sortis du Tartare ! Le titre étiqueté le plus black de l’album est sans aucun doute le très rapide “Verschleierte Irreligiosität”, qui est loin d’être excellent, mais la piste d’ouverture ainsi que “Aphel – Die Schwarze Schlange” ne sont pas en reste. Parfois, la recette est assez élémentaire pour suffire à nous entrainer, comme en témoignent les riffs plus que simples de “Verheißung – Du Krone Des Todeskultes”. Et oui, les artistes black n’ont pas besoin de posséder une grosse qualité technique pour nous conquérir. Et surtout, ils ont encore moins besoin de jouir d’une qualité de production hors-norme. C’est même tout l’inverse. Dans Dictius Te Necare, le son est ultra typé old-school (normal me direz-vous pour un album d’une vingtaine d’années déjà). Cette sonorité un minimum crasseuse avec ces quelques grésillements de guitares. Volontairement impropre, il nous enfouit dans un bourbier dont on a du mal à s’extirper. Et heureusement, car c’est tout l’ambiguité de cet album et de ce type de metal. On a envie de sombrer avec les compositeurs, pour ressentir au mieux leur travail. Travail de libération en soi, mais qui peut vous faire basculer dans une profonde psychose et dépression dans une mauvaise période de votre vie. A consommer avec modération donc, mais avec délectation. Un peu comme un rhum, trente ans d’âge.

    Dictius Te Necare est clairement à rapprocher de Death – Pierce Me de Silencer et Dipsomania de Psychonaut 4 au niveau de l’émotion procurée par la voix. Bien sûr, les deux formations citées se sont forcément inspirées des Allemands car, avec cet album, ceux-ci viennent de s’inscrire dans la durée et de marquer le genre du black dépressif. Comme quoi, il n’y a pas que le djent dans la vie.

    WASHINGTON — President Trump defended his weeks-old administration as a “fine-tuned machine,” lamented the “mess” he inherited from his predecessor, and lambasted the “fake news” media during a wide-ranging news conference Thursday.

    The president said he asked his former national security adviser Michael Flynn to resign because he misled Vice President Pence about his calls to the Russian ambassador to the United States. But Trump said he didn’t believe Flynn did anything wrong by making those calls and he faulted leakers for providing contents of the intercepted calls to the media.

    Trump accused the media of distorting what he has done since taking office and failing to accurately cover his administration.

    “I see stories of chaos, chaos, yet it is the exact opposite,” he said. “This administration is running like a fine-tuned machine, despite the fact that I can’t get my Cabinet approved.”

    Trump ticked off all the executive actions he has taken, including those freezing federal hiring and rule-making, ordering elimination of two regulations for every new one issued, and expediting permits for construction of the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines.

    He said his administration is preparing for the repeal and replacement of the Affordable Care Act and has already begun work to start construction of a wall along the southern border with Mexico.

    “I’m here following through on what I pledged to do, that’s all I’m doing,” he said.

    Trump said his administration has also been working hard to address problems he inherited from his predecessor, Barack Obama. He cited companies moving jobs overseas, instability in the Middle East and the threat posed by North Korea.

    “To be honest, I inherited a mess,” Trump said. “It’s a mess. At home and abroad, a mess.”
    Immigration

    Trump signaled he will issue a new immigration order next week and criticized the federal circuit court that blocked his marquee order banning Syrian refugees and temporarily halting travel to the United States from seven majority Muslim countries.

    “That circuit is in chaos and that circuit is frankly in turmoil,” he said. “But we are appealing that.”

    Trump did not provide details of the new order he plans to issue but said it will be “very much tailored” to avoid problems judges had with his last one.

    He said it was his duty to keep Americans safe from terrorism, something the first order was intended to do by blocking potential terrorists from entering the United States.

    “I will not back down from defending our country,” Trump said. “I got elected on defense of our country and I keep my campaign promises.”

    The president said he is creating a new office in the Department of Homeland Security dedicated to the “forgotten American victims” of crimes committed by immigrants in the country illegally.

    When asked what he plans to do with noncriminal immigrants who were brought in illegally by their parents, Trump said his administration is “going to show great heart,” although he did not say how. Obama had signed an executive order allowing them to stay temporarily in the United States, known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA.

    “The DACA situation is … a very difficult thing for me,” Trump said, adding that a lot of them are “incredible kids.”

    Russia

    The president called reports of contacts between his associates and Russian officials during the campaign “fake news” and said people mentioned in the stories denied it. Trump also sought to distance himself from any ties to Russia, although prior to taking office, he and his representatives made many business trips and engaged in multiple deals there.

    “I own nothing in Russia, I have no loans in Russia, I don’t have any deals in Russia,” Trump said.

    He said that he has spoken to Russian President Vladimir Putin twice in recent months, once after the election and the second time after his inauguration when Putin called “extremely nicely to congratulate me.”

    “But so did many other leaders, almost all other leaders from almost all of the country,” Trump said. “So that’s the extent.”

    The president declined to say what the United States might do to respond to recent Russian actions. A Russian spy ship was spotted 30 miles off the coast of Connecticut this week, and Russian planes have reportedly buzzed U.S. Navy ships in the Red Sea.

    Trump said the actions were “not good” but he wants to try and get along with Russia. He blasted former secretary of State Hillary Clinton for trying unsuccessfully to do so, and noted that she presented Russia with a “stupid plastic button” as a symbol of resetting U.S.-Russia relations.

    “I would love to be able to get along with Russia,” Trump said, adding that if he decided to respond to the country’s latest actions, he wouldn’t announce it publicly. “I’m not going to tell you anything.”
    Cites polls

    The president insisted the American people support him, citing a Rasmussen poll released earlier Thursday in which 55% of likely voters approve of the job he’s doing. Another poll released Thursday from the nonpartisan Pew Research Center found 39% thought he has been was doing a good job, while 55% disapproved of his performance.

    Trump noted the stock market has hit record highs since he won election and there is a “tremendous surge of optimism in the business world.”

    “Plants and factories are already starting to move back into the United States, and big league — Ford, General Motors, so many of them,” he said.

    Trump said he is fulfilling one promise after another, unlike other politicians who “lied to the American people in order to get elected,” and he falsely claimed to have had the biggest Electoral College victory since Ronald Reagan. (His 304-vote win was the biggest since Obama won 332 votes in 2012.)

    He also referred to a large campaign-style rally in Florida on Saturday (“I heard — just heard that the crowds are massive that want to be there”) and said that when it comes to governing, he is just getting started.

    “This last month has represented an unprecedented degree of action on behalf of the great citizens of our country,” Trump said. “There has never been a presidency that’s done so much in such a short period of time. And we have not even started the big work yet. That starts early next week.”

    Sacerdote en Italia ‘peca con meretrices y luego se confiesa’
    La Gabbia, de La7, evidenció las andanzas de un sacerdote de doble moral; sus veladas entre burdeles los psaba a lado de mujeres, con las qu ellegó a gastar hasta 535 euros
    17/02/2017 06:15 Redacción / Video: La Gabbia, de La7

    ITALIA

    Nuevamente Italia fue sacudida por el escándalo… un sacerdote de doble moral fue evidenciado en televisión por La Gabbia, de La7, quien captó las asiduas visitas del clérigo a clubes nocturnos para beber y pasar momentos con meretrices.

    La televisora recibió un anónimo, por lo que encomendó al periodista Silvio Schembri dar marcaje personal al denunciado.

    No hubo necesidad de esperar demasiado, la ‘carne’ venció al sacerdote, quien realizaba caminatas nocturnas por locales del norte de Italia e ingresaba a los lugares de la ‘vida loca’.

    Para documentar las andanzas de este párroco de doble moral, Schembri se colocó una cámara y un micrófono entre su ropa, con los que pudo captar las escenas en las que el padre se divertía y derrochaba entre 330 y 440 euros por velada.

    Pero no había más… por lo que se ganó la confianza del ‘pecador’ y en una de las conversaciones presume que en los privados, los masajes con las mujeres terminaban en felación.

    Los excesos lo llevaron a pasar 90 minutos con cinco mujeres, su fantasía le costó 535 euros; pero, su osadía iba más allá, acudía con sotana porque le daba seguridad y si alguien se acercaba, les advertía que los conocía y le diría a su esposa si se atrevía a ventilar sus andanzas.

    Schembri acompañó a clérigo una noche, donde acudió a dos sitios y ambos pasó tiempo con mujeres en privados.

    El TRUMPas tiene los mismos patrones de conducta del que se dice enviado del cielo a salvar a los pobres, resultaria muy recurrente que el SENADO DE LA REPUBLICA, legislara al respecto, ordenando al INE, medir la sanidad mental de cada uno de los suspirantes a la PRESIDENCIA DE LA REPUBLICA, empezando por el PEJE MESIANICO, dificil de que apruebe los examenes, se quedaria a medio camino.

    Salud mental imposibilita a Trump para gobernar: psiquiatras
    Un grupo de 35 especialistas publicaron una carta en The New York Times donde rompen el silencio sobre los ‘desórdenes mentales’ que imposibilitan al presidente para gobernar

    Un grupo de 35 especialistas de salud mental rompió la regla Goldwater para emitir un diagnostico no oficial sobre el presidente estadunidense.

    WASHINGTON

    La ola de rechazo hacía el presidente de Estados Unidos. Donald Trump, continúan en todo el país. El martes pasado un grupo de 35 especialistas, entre psiquiatras, psicólogos y trabajadores sociales rompieron el silencio y enviaron una carta abierta al editor del diario estadunidense The New York Times, bajo el título “Profesionales de la salud mental advierten sobre Trump”, en donde comentan sobre los desórdenes mentales del neoyorquino.

    Creemos que la inestabilidad emocional mostrada en el discurso del señor Trump, así como sus acciones, lo incapacitan de servir con seguridad a la nación como presidente”, indicaron los especialistas en salud mental a través de la carta publicada por el diario estadunidense.

    La salud mental del presidente de Estados Unidos adolece de ciertas capacidades entre las que destacan su incapacidad por tolerar comentarios adversos a su punto de vista, “El discurso y acciones del señor Trump demuestran su nula habilidad de tolerar puntos de vista diferentes al suyo, lo que provoca reacciones de rabia”, explicaron los especialistas quienes agregaron que le es imposible sentir empatía, agregando que los “individuos con esta clase de desórdenes, tienden a distorsionar la realidad para encajar en su estado psicológico, atacando a aquellos que los enfrentan -en este caso- (periodistas y científicos)”.

    El grupo de psiquiatras admite que al emitir dicho dictamen viola la Regla Goldwater del año 1973 impuesta por la Asociación Psiquiátrica Americana, misma que prohibió a los miembros del gremio evaluar a figuras públicas, y que sin embargo echan abajo con el argumento de que “hay mucho en juego como para permanecer en silencio”.

    En la carta publicada el pasado martes por el diario estadunidense los profesionales de la salud mental se atreven a señalar en un diagnostico no oficial que el actual presidente de la los Estados Unidos con una “grave estabilidad emocional”.

    Trump Will Issue New Travel Order Instead of Fighting Case in Court

    The United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, in San Francisco, blocked the key parts of President Trump’s targeted travel ban last week. Credit Jim Wilson/The New York Times
    WASHINGTON — The Justice Department told a federal appeals court on Thursday that it would not seek a rehearing of a decision that shut down President Trump’s targeted travel ban. Instead, the administration will start from scratch, issuing a new executive order, the department said.

    Last Thursday, a unanimous three-judge panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, in San Francisco, blocked the key parts of the original executive order, which suspended the nation’s refugee program as well as travel from seven predominantly Muslim countries. The panel said the original ban was unlikely to survive constitutional scrutiny.

    The Justice Department said that the panel’s decision was riddled with errors but that the flaws it noted would be addressed in the new executive order.

    “Rather than continuing this litigation,” the Justice Department’s brief said, “the president intends in the near future to rescind the order and replace it with a new, substantially revised executive order to eliminate what the panel erroneously thought were constitutional concerns.”

    “In so doing,” the brief said, “the president will clear the way for immediately protecting the country rather than pursuing further, potentially time-consuming litigation.”

    In a news conference on Thursday, Mr. Trump said the new executive order would be issued next week.

    In its brief, the Justice Department urged the appeals court to await the new order and then vacate last Thursday’s decision.

    President Trump’s News Conference: Live Analysis
    President Trump is expected to announce a new nominee for secretary of labor. Times reporters will be following live and offering analysis.

    It is not clear that the issuance of a new and narrower executive order will make the case before the Ninth Circuit moot or that the court will agree to vacate the decision even if it did.

    The Supreme Court has said the “voluntary cessation” of a government action does not usually make a case moot if the government remains free to resume the conduct after the case is dismissed.

    In calling for a legal do-over, the Justice Department avoided a Supreme Court test of the original executive order. A 4-to-4 tie on the short-handed Supreme Court would have left the panel’s decision in place.

    Mr. Trump’s travel ban, issued Jan. 27, caused confusion and protests at airports nationwide and was immediately challenged in court. Many federal judges blocked aspects of the order.

    The broadest injunction was issued on Feb. 3 by Judge James L. Robart of the Federal District Court in Seattle, acting in a lawsuit filed by the states of Washington and Minnesota. Judge Robart required the administration to roll back the key aspects of the order, and travel from the affected countries resumed almost immediately.

    The next day, the Justice Department filed an emergency appeal, saying that national security concerns required immediate action from the appeals court. The three-judge panel heard arguments a few days later, and in a unanimous decision last Thursday, it refused to reinstate the ban.

    Many legal scholars, including ones who disapproved of the ban, have criticized the reasoning in the panel’s ruling. The Justice Department’s brief tracked many of those critiques, saying the panel’s decision was plagued by misunderstandings about the scope of the original executive order and the president’s authority to address immigration.

    “In other circumstances,” the brief said, “the panel’s multiple errors in sustaining a substantially overbroad injunction, and thereby prohibiting enforcement of a lawful executive order designed to protect the nation’s security, would warrant” review by a larger panel of the Ninth Circuit.

    “Such review is not called for at this time,” the brief said, given the forthcoming executive order.

    In their own brief filed Thursday, Washington and Minnesota agreed with the administration on one thing: that no rehearing of the panel’s decision was warranted. But the states argued that the panel’s ruling had been careful and correct.

    “The panel’s order thoroughly considered the legal precedent and the parties’ arguments and neither overlooked nor misunderstood a point of law or fact,” the brief said.

    The briefs came in response to a request from the appeals court. Last Friday, an unidentified appeals court judge called for a vote on whether the three-judge panel’s ruling should be reheard by a larger panel of the Ninth Circuit.

    If a majority of the court’s active judges vote to rehear the case, it would typically be considered by an 11-member panel made up of the circuit’s chief judge and 10 judges chosen at random.

    Rehearing motions filed by parties and requests for votes on rehearings requested by judges are not particularly unusual. The Ninth Circuit rehears decisions issued by three-judge panels 15 to 25 times a year, the court said.

    The Ninth Circuit has 25 active judges; 18 were appointed by Democratic presidents.

    Even if the Ninth Circuit agrees to vacate the panel’s decision, challenges to the original executive order will continue in other courts. And the new executive order may draw fresh legal challenges.

    “In so doing,” the brief said, “the president will clear the way for immediately protecting the country rather than pursuing further, potentially time-consuming litigation.”

    In a news conference on Thursday, Mr. Trump said the new executive order would be issued next week.

    In its brief, the Justice Department urged the appeals court to await the new order and then vacate last Thursday’s decision.

    President Trump’s News Conference: Live Analysis
    President Trump is expected to announce a new nominee for secretary of labor. Times reporters will be following live and offering analysis.

    It is not clear that the issuance of a new and narrower executive order will make the case before the Ninth Circuit moot or that the court will agree to vacate the decision even if it did.

    The Supreme Court has said the “voluntary cessation” of a government action does not usually make a case moot if the government remains free to resume the conduct after the case is dismissed.

    In calling for a legal do-over, the Justice Department avoided a Supreme Court test of the original executive order. A 4-to-4 tie on the short-handed Supreme Court would have left the panel’s decision in place.

    Mr. Trump’s travel ban, issued Jan. 27, caused confusion and protests at airports nationwide and was immediately challenged in court. Many federal judges blocked aspects of the order.

    The broadest injunction was issued on Feb. 3 by Judge James L. Robart of the Federal District Court in Seattle, acting in a lawsuit filed by the states of Washington and Minnesota. Judge Robart required the administration to roll back the key aspects of the order, and travel from the affected countries resumed almost immediately.

    The next day, the Justice Department filed an emergency appeal, saying that national security concerns required immediate action from the appeals court. The three-judge panel heard arguments a few days later, and in a unanimous decision last Thursday, it refused to reinstate the ban.

    Many legal scholars, including ones who disapproved of the ban, have criticized the reasoning in the panel’s ruling. The Justice Department’s brief tracked many of those critiques, saying the panel’s decision was plagued by misunderstandings about the scope of the original executive order and the president’s authority to address immigration.

    “In other circumstances,” the brief said, “the panel’s multiple errors in sustaining a substantially overbroad injunction, and thereby prohibiting enforcement of a lawful executive order designed to protect the nation’s security, would warrant” review by a larger panel of the Ninth Circuit.

    “Such review is not called for at this time,” the brief said, given the forthcoming executive order.

    In their own brief filed Thursday, Washington and Minnesota agreed with the administration on one thing: that no rehearing of the panel’s decision was warranted. But the states argued that the panel’s ruling had been careful and correct.

    “The panel’s order thoroughly considered the legal precedent and the parties’ arguments and neither overlooked nor misunderstood a point of law or fact,” the brief said.

    The briefs came in response to a request from the appeals court. Last Friday, an unidentified appeals court judge called for a vote on whether the three-judge panel’s ruling should be reheard by a larger panel of the Ninth Circuit.

    If a majority of the court’s active judges vote to rehear the case, it would typically be considered by an 11-member panel made up of the circuit’s chief judge and 10 judges chosen at random.

    Rehearing motions filed by parties and requests for votes on rehearings requested by judges are not particularly unusual. The Ninth Circuit rehears decisions issued by three-judge panels 15 to 25 times a year, the court said.

    The Ninth Circuit has 25 active judges; 18 were appointed by Democratic presidents.

    Even if the Ninth Circuit agrees to vacate the panel’s decision, challenges to the original executive order will continue in other courts. And the new executive order may draw fresh legal challenges.

    The United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, in San Francisco, blocked the key parts of President Trump’s targeted travel ban last week. Credit Jim Wilson/The New York Times
    WASHINGTON — The Justice Department told a federal appeals court on Thursday that it would not seek a rehearing of a decision that shut down President Trump’s targeted travel ban. Instead, the administration will start from scratch, issuing a new executive order, the department said.

    Last Thursday, a unanimous three-judge panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, in San Francisco, blocked the key parts of the original executive order, which suspended the nation’s refugee program as well as travel from seven predominantly Muslim countries. The panel said the original ban was unlikely to survive constitutional scrutiny.

    The Justice Department said that the panel’s decision was riddled with errors but that the flaws it noted would be addressed in the new executive order.

    “Rather than continuing this litigation,” the Justice Department’s brief said, “the president intends in the near future to rescind the order and replace it with a new, substantially revised executive order to eliminate what the panel erroneously thought were constitutional concerns.”

    “In so doing,” the brief said, “the president will clear the way for immediately protecting the country rather than pursuing further, potentially time-consuming litigation.”

    In a news conference on Thursday, Mr. Trump said the new executive order would be issued next week.

    In its brief, the Justice Department urged the appeals court to await the new order and then vacate last Thursday’s decision.

    For days, news reports have noted the presence of a Russian naval ship lurking in international waters off the East Coast of the United States. For some critics of President Trump, the vessel has become a symbol of the administration’s ties with Russia.

    Mr. Trump himself referred to the ship at a marathon news conference on Thursday, saying that his critics probably think “the greatest thing I could do is shoot that ship that’s 30 miles offshore right out of the water. Everyone in this country’s going to say, ‘Oh, it’s so great.’ That’s not great. That’s not great.”

    A Coast Guard official on Thursday said the presence of the intelligence ship, called the Viktor Leonov, so close to American shores is not unprecedented, and is not a cause for alarm.

    The vessel has been traveling along the Eastern Seaboard and was spotted near the states of Connecticut, Virginia and Delaware. Capt. Andrew Tucci, who oversees Long Island Sound and coastal Connecticut, said the Coast Guard knew the Russian ship had been traveling from the Caribbean “for some time.”

    “This vessel was transiting all up the Eastern Seaboard, and the Coast Guard and other military and federal government agencies are aware,” Captain Tucci said.

    By the time the public learned of it on Wednesday, it had started to move in the direction of a submarine base in Groton, Conn., staying at least 30 miles offshore.

    Captain Tucci said that his region is traversed mostly by commercial fishing vessels and oceangoing freight ships, but that the Coast Guard had no reason to contact the Russian ship.

    Asked how often a foreign military ship passes off the U.S. coast, he said, “A couple times a year.”

    “It may not be a daily occurrence, but it is not unusual,” he said of the appearance of the Russian vessel. “This vessel was in international waters for the entirety of a transit, so it is not a violation of American sovereignty in any way,” Captain Tucci said.

    “And yes, Russian vessels transit through international waters,” he added, “and certainly American vessels transit through international waters, and it is a legitimate and lawful activity that doesn’t raise any particular concerns.”

    United States territory extends 12 miles out to sea.

    While the ship was being treated publicly as little more than a maritime curiosity, its presence became entangled in the political discourse. That was especially true after Michael T. Flynn’s resignation this week as national security adviser amid a scandal over his contact with a Russian diplomat.

    Mr. Trump, who spent part of the news conference denouncing leaks to the press, later used the ship as an example of a national security matter that he would not discuss with journalists. “So when you ask me what am I going to do with a ship, the Russian ship as an example, I’m not going to tell you,” he said. “But hopefully, I won’t have to do anything, but I’m not going to tell you.”

    Earlier in the week, some had seized on the Russian ship as a symbol. Representative Joe Courtney, a Democrat from Connecticut and a member of the Seapower and Projection Forces Subcommittee, said on Wednesday on the House floor and in a statement that the presence of the Russian “spy ship” about 30 miles from the Groton submarine base was one of several “destabilizing” actions by Russia and its president, Vladimir V. Putin.

    “This unacceptable, aggressive action, combined with the buzzing of U.S. Navy ships in the Black Sea yesterday, are clearly testing the resolve of a new administration,” Mr. Courtney said in the statement on his website. “While I have total confidence in our Navy’s vigilant, responsible readiness, the White House needs to move past their seeming infatuation with Putin and treat him like the serious threat to global peace and security that he has been for the last five years.”

    In Congress, the representative said the appearance of the ship fit into a Russian pattern of aggression, including the recent deployment of a new cruise missile that American officials say violated a landmark arms control treaty.

    “This administration needs to wake up and recognize that and move on to a bipartisan effort to respond to this threat,” Mr. Courtney said. “And they can do that by again disclosing all of the background regarding General Flynn’s interactions with the Russian government, because it is part and parcel of all those incidents which I listed in terms of aggressive actions that are happening in real time as we are here in Washington, D.C., today.”

    Though Representative Jim Himes, a Democrat from Connecticut, said in a statement on Wednesday the ship did “not present a direct threat to our physical safety,” he added that its appearance was troubling, however, viewed in conjunction with the stories of “Russian ties and interference in the Trump administration and the recent deployment of a Russian cruise missile in apparent violation of international agreements.

    He added, “In my opinion, Russia is making a show of strength and pushing established boundaries and norms to gauge the reaction of a new administration in disarray.”

    Senator Chris Murphy, a Democrat from Connecticut, said that while the appearance of the Russian ship was not “wholly unprecedented,” it showed the Trump administration had given Russia the green light to “flex his muscles.”

    For years, the 300-foot ship, which has equipment monitoring sonar and communications and carries defensive weaponry, has been patrolling near naval installations on the East Coast and was spotted two years ago near the Navy’s Trident ballistic missile submarine base in Kings Bay, Ga., The Hartford Courant newspaper reported.

    “It’s been going on for years,” said Jeff Walsh, a retired Navy senior chief, who served 22 years aboard attack submarines and who works at Electric Boat in Groton. Mr. Walsh was quoted by the newspaper as saying that the attention roused by the ship was amusing to people who understand the context.

    “It’s going to keep going on until everyone wants to play nice.”

    The Associated Press quoted an unnamed military official as saying the ship had made a port call in Cuba previously and was monitored off Delaware’s coast. It was not immediately clear how long the Russian ship had remained off the Connecticut coast.

    Captain Tucci said he did not have information about the location of the Russian ship on Thursday. “It came up here, it turned around and left, and to my knowledge the last briefing I got, it was headed back down,” he said.

    WASHINGTON — President Trump on Thursday dismissed reports about his associates’ contacts with Russia last year and vigorously defended his performance in his first four weeks in office, in a contentious news conference that showcased his unconventional and unconstrained presidency.

    At a hastily organized White House event — ostensibly to announce a new nominee for labor secretary, R. Alexander Acosta — Mr. Trump engaged in an extended attack on the news media and insisted that his new administration was not a chaotic operation but a “fine-tuned machine.” Any challenges, he said, were not his fault. “To be honest, I inherited a mess,” he said.

    In addition to his cabinet announcement, the president revealed that he had asked the Justice Department to investigate government leaks and said he would sign an executive order next week restricting travel to the United States. He promised to produce by March a plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, followed by another plan to overhaul the tax system.

    But his 77-minute news conference was dominated by an extraordinarily raw and angry defense of both his administration and his character. At times abrupt, often rambling, characteristically boastful yet seemingly pained at the portrayals of him, Mr. Trump kept summoning the spirit of his successful campaign after a month of grinding governance to remind his audience, again, that he won.

    For a president who has already lost a court battle, fired an acting attorney general and a national security adviser, and lost a cabinet nomination fight, Mr. Trump was eager to demonstrate that he was still in command. He attacked judges for blocking his original travel order and Democrats for obstructing his nominations. He denied being anti-Semitic even when no one accused him of it. With the latest Pew Research Center poll showing that just 39 percent of Americans approve of the job he is doing, Mr. Trump at one point plaintively pleaded for understanding.

    “The tone is such hatred,” he said, referring to the commentary about him on cable television. “I’m really not a bad person.”

    Mr. Trump disputed any contention that the White House was out of control or not fully functional, and boasted of a flurry of actions intended to create jobs, curb regulations and crack down on illegal immigration.

    “There has never been a presidency that has done so much in such a short period of time,” he said. “And we haven’t even started the big work yet. That starts early next week.”

    The enactment of a temporary ban on refugees and all visitors from seven predominantly Muslim countries, he maintained, was “perfect,” despite widespread confusion and subsequent court rulings blocking it. “We had a very smooth rollout of the travel ban,” he said. “But we had a bad court.”

    Mr. Trump offered his first account of his decision to fire Michael T. Flynn, his national security adviser, for misleading Vice President Mike Pence and others in the White House about the contents of a conversation with Russia’s ambassador in December.

    He said he was not bothered that Mr. Flynn had talked with the ambassador about American sanctions on Russia before arriving at the White House. “I didn’t direct him,” he said, “but I would have directed him, because that’s his job.”

    The problem, he said, was that Mr. Flynn had told Mr. Pence that sanctions did not come up during the conversation, an assertion belied by a transcript of the call, which had been monitored by American intelligence agencies.

    “The thing is he didn’t tell our vice president properly, and then he said he didn’t remember,” Mr. Trump said. “So either way, it wasn’t very satisfactory to me.”

    But he said reports that his campaign aides and other associates had contacts with Russia were “a joke” and “fake news put out by the media.” The New York Times reported this week that phone records and intercepted calls showed repeated contacts between some of his associates and Russian intelligence officials in the year before the election.

    “Russia is a ruse,” Mr. Trump said. “I have nothing to do with Russia. To the best of my knowledge, no person that I deal with does.”

    President Trump’s News Conference: Live Analysis
    President Trump is expected to announce a new nominee for secretary of labor. Times reporters will be following live and offering analysis.

    However, Mr. Trump said, all the pressure on Russia may ruin any future negotiations with President Vladimir V. Putin. “Putin probably assumes that he can’t make a deal with me anymore because politically, it would be unpopular for a politician to make a deal,” he said.

    Like presidents before him, Mr. Trump was peeved at a series of leaks, including about Mr. Flynn’s call and his own conversations with foreign leaders. In addition to requesting the Justice Department investigation, he confirmed that he might assign a New York billionaire, Stephen A. Feinberg, to conduct a broad review of the intelligence agencies. “He’s offered his services, and you know, it’s something we may take advantage of,” Mr. Trump said. But he added that it might not be necessary because “we are going to be able to straighten it out very easily on its own.”

    Mr. Trump returned again and again to his contest with Hillary Clinton, replaying key events from the 2016 campaign and reviving his favorite attacks. He repeated a false claim that Mrs. Clinton’s State Department signed off on the purchase of a Canadian company by a Russian state firm that gave Russia control of one-fifth of all uranium production in the United States. “I’ve done nothing for Russia,” he said. “Hillary Clinton gave them 20 percent of our uranium.”

    Fact checkers have said the charge is wrong on several points, noting that Mrs. Clinton was not in a position to approve or reject the deal when she was at the State Department.

    Mr. Trump spent much of the conference berating reporters and their news organizations. Clearly exasperated by coverage of him, he said he did not watch CNN but then gave a detailed critique of one of its shows. He cited specific articles in The Times and The Wall Street Journal that he called “fake,” even harking back to one from last year’s campaign.

    “The press is out of control,” he said. “The level of dishonesty is out of control.”

    He added later, “The public doesn’t believe you people anymore.”

    The acrimony grew so sharp at one point that CNN’s Jim Acosta felt the need to tell Mr. Trump, “Just for the record, we don’t hate you.”

    But that did not assuage the president. At one point, he called on Jake Turx, an ultra-Orthodox Jewish reporter from a magazine called Ami. “Are you a friendly reporter?” he asked.

    “I haven’t seen anybody in my community accuse either yourself or anyone on your staff of being anti-Semitic,” Mr. Turx said. But, citing bomb threats against Jewish centers, he said, “What we haven’t really heard being addressed is an uptick in anti-Semitism and how the government is planning to take care of it.”

    Mr. Trump bristled, taking it as a suggestion that he was anti-Semitic even though the reporter specifically said the opposite. “I am the least anti-Semitic person that you’ve ever seen in your entire life,” Mr. Trump said.

    Mr. Turx protested that he was not suggesting otherwise. “Quiet, quiet, quiet,” Mr. Trump said. “See? He lied. He was going to get up and ask a very straight, simple question.” Instead, Mr. Trump said, the question was “repulsive” and “very insulting.” He later accused Democrats of posing as supporters and holding up signs at his rallies to smear him.

    When April Ryan of American Urban Radio Networks asked whether he would meet with the Congressional Black Caucus to discuss his urban agenda, Mr. Trump again seemed piqued.

    “Do you want to set up the meeting?” he challenged her. “Are they friends of yours?”

    “I’m just a reporter,” said Ms. Ryan, who is African-American.

    “Well, then, set up the meeting,” Mr. Trump said.

    That exchange and others included claims that were false or disputed. Mr. Trump told Ms. Ryan that he had planned a meeting with Representative Elijah E. Cummings, an African-American Democrat from Maryland, but that Mr. Cummings had said: “It might be bad for me politically. I can’t have that meeting.”

    Mr. Cummings later denied that. “I have no idea why President Trump would make up a story about me like he did today,” he said. “I was actually looking forward to meeting with the president about the skyrocketing price of prescription drugs.”

    COMMENTS
    Similarly, Mr. Trump asserted that his Electoral College victory was the largest since Ronald Reagan’s. But he won fewer Electoral College votes than three of the four presidents since Reagan: Barack Obama, Bill Clinton and George Bush.

    When a reporter pointed that out, Mr. Trump brushed it off. “I was given that information,” he said.

    Trump Was Told Weeks Ago That Michael Flynn Withheld Truth on Russia

    WASHINGTON — President Trump was informed more than two weeks ago that his national security adviser, Michael T. Flynn, had not told the truth about his interactions with Russia’s ambassador, and the president eventually asked for Mr. Flynn’s resignation after concluding he could not be trusted, the White House said on Tuesday.

    At his daily briefing, Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, said the president’s team had been “reviewing and evaluating this issue on a daily basis trying to ascertain the truth,” and it ultimately concluded that while there was no violation of law, Mr. Flynn could no longer serve in his position.

    “The evolving and eroding level of trust as a result of this situation and a series of other questionable instances is what led the president to ask for General Flynn’s resignation,” Mr. Spicer said.

    Mr. Spicer’s comments were the first public confirmation by the White House that Mr. Trump was aware of the allegations against Mr. Flynn before they were reported last week. They also contradicted the previous description of the national security adviser’s abrupt departure on Monday night, and they now attributed the decision to Mr. Trump rather than Mr. Flynn.

    The issue traced back to a telephone call between Mr. Flynn, then Mr. Trump’s designated national security adviser, and Sergey I. Kislyak, the Russian ambassador to the United States, in December. Mr. Flynn later told Vice President Mike Pence and others in the White House that the conversation did not include any discussion of sanctions being imposed on Russia by the departing president, Barack Obama, over interference in American elections.

    Mr. Pence and Mr. Spicer passed along this account to the public. But the telephone conversation was intercepted by the American intelligence apparatus that typically monitors Russian diplomats, and a transcript reviewed by the Justice Department showed that sanctions did come up.

    By Mr. Spicer’s account, Sally Yates, an Obama administration holdover serving as the acting attorney general, told Donald F. McGahn II, the White House counsel, about the discrepancy. Mr. Trump was told “immediately,” Mr. Spicer said, and directed Mr. McGahn to review the matter.

    The New York Times would like to hear from readers who want to share messages and materials with our journalists.

    After a review of several days, Mr. McGahn concluded that nothing in the conversation violated federal law, Mr. Spicer said.

    But the president was then left to determine whether he could still trust Mr. Flynn, a retired Army lieutenant general and former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency. Mr. Spicer said Mr. Flynn “continued to maintain” that he had not discussed sanctions or had forgotten it, which led Mr. Trump to decide he could no longer rely on him.

    “We got to a point not based on a legal issue, but based on a trust issue, with the level of trust between the president and General Flynn had eroded to the point where he felt he had to make a change,” Mr. Spicer said. “The president was very concerned that General Flynn had misled the vice president and others.”

    Asked if Mr. Trump had instructed Mr. Flynn to talk about sanctions with Mr. Kislyak, Mr. Spicer said, “No, absolutely not.” Asked if Mr. Trump was aware that the issue had come up before the Justice Department told the White House, Mr. Spicer said, “No, he was not aware.”

    Mr. Spicer emphasized that there was “nothing wrong” with Mr. Flynn talking with representatives of other countries during the transition to prepare for the new president taking office.

    Mr. Spicer’s account from the White House lectern once again left a colleague publicly contradicted. Just hours earlier, Kellyanne Conway, the president’s counselor, said on television that Mr. Flynn volunteered his resignation. “General Flynn decided he should resign last night and the president accepted that resignation,” she said.

    A day earlier, she had been sent out to tell a television interviewer that Mr. Trump still had “full confidence” in Mr. Flynn, only to have Mr. Spicer tell reporters not long afterward that, in fact, “the president is evaluating the situation.” Seven hours after her affirmation of support, Mr. Flynn had resigned.

    Mr. Trump has assigned retired Lt. Gen. Joseph K. Kellogg Jr., a deputy national security adviser, to fill in as the top adviser while a search is conducted for a permanent replacement for Mr. Flynn. The top choice, according to administration officials, is retired Vice Admiral Robert S. Harward.

    WASHINGTON — President Trump was informed more than two weeks ago that his national security adviser, Michael T. Flynn, had not told the truth about his interactions with Russia’s ambassador, and the president eventually asked for Mr. Flynn’s resignation after concluding he could not be trusted, the White House said on Tuesday.

    At his daily briefing, Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, said the president’s team had been “reviewing and evaluating this issue on a daily basis trying to ascertain the truth,” and it ultimately concluded that while there was no violation of law, Mr. Flynn could no longer serve in his position.

    “The evolving and eroding level of trust as a result of this situation and a series of other questionable instances is what led the president to ask for General Flynn’s resignation,” Mr. Spicer said.

    Mr. Spicer’s comments were the first public confirmation by the White House that Mr. Trump was aware of the allegations against Mr. Flynn before they were reported last week. They also contradicted the previous description of the national security adviser’s abrupt departure on Monday night, and they now attributed the decision to Mr. Trump rather than Mr. Flynn.

    The issue traced back to a telephone call between Mr. Flynn, then Mr. Trump’s designated national security adviser, and Sergey I. Kislyak, the Russian ambassador to the United States, in December. Mr. Flynn later told Vice President Mike Pence and others in the White House that the conversation did not include any discussion of sanctions being imposed on Russia by the departing president, Barack Obama, over interference in American elections.

    Mr. Pence and Mr. Spicer passed along this account to the public. But the telephone conversation was intercepted by the American intelligence apparatus that typically monitors Russian diplomats, and a transcript reviewed by the Justice Department showed that sanctions did come up.

    By Mr. Spicer’s account, Sally Yates, an Obama administration holdover serving as the acting attorney general, told Donald F. McGahn II, the White House counsel, about the discrepancy. Mr. Trump was told “immediately,” Mr. Spicer said, and directed Mr. McGahn to review the matter.

    The New York Times would like to hear from readers who want to share messages and materials with our journalists.

    After a review of several days, Mr. McGahn concluded that nothing in the conversation violated federal law, Mr. Spicer said.

    But the president was then left to determine whether he could still trust Mr. Flynn, a retired Army lieutenant general and former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency. Mr. Spicer said Mr. Flynn “continued to maintain” that he had not discussed sanctions or had forgotten it, which led Mr. Trump to decide he could no longer rely on him.

    “We got to a point not based on a legal issue, but based on a trust issue, with the level of trust between the president and General Flynn had eroded to the point where he felt he had to make a change,” Mr. Spicer said. “The president was very concerned that General Flynn had misled the vice president and others.”

    Asked if Mr. Trump had instructed Mr. Flynn to talk about sanctions with Mr. Kislyak, Mr. Spicer said, “No, absolutely not.” Asked if Mr. Trump was aware that the issue had come up before the Justice Department told the White House, Mr. Spicer said, “No, he was not aware.”

    Mr. Spicer emphasized that there was “nothing wrong” with Mr. Flynn talking with representatives of other countries during the transition to prepare for the new president taking office.

    Mr. Spicer’s account from the White House lectern once again left a colleague publicly contradicted. Just hours earlier, Kellyanne Conway, the president’s counselor, said on television that Mr. Flynn volunteered his resignation. “General Flynn decided he should resign last night and the president accepted that resignation,” she said.

    A day earlier, she had been sent out to tell a television interviewer that Mr. Trump still had “full confidence” in Mr. Flynn, only to have Mr. Spicer tell reporters not long afterward that, in fact, “the president is evaluating the situation.” Seven hours after her affirmation of support, Mr. Flynn had resigned.

    Mr. Trump has assigned retired Lt. Gen. Joseph K. Kellogg Jr., a deputy national security adviser, to fill in as the top adviser while a search is conducted for a permanent replacement for Mr. Flynn. The top choice, according to administration officials, is retired Vice Admiral Robert S. Harward.

    WASHINGTON — The stunning resignation of Michael T. Flynn as White House national security adviser less than a month after his appointment has emboldened congressional Democrats to demand a broader investigation into President Trump’s ties to Russia and the Kremlin’s role in the 2016 election.

    But congressional Republicans, with the notable exception of Senator John McCain of Arizona, remained largely silent to the deep turmoil in Mr. Trump’s national security apparatus. That is a striking departure for a party once universally hawkish about Russia and now in control of all the levers of power in Washington.

    Democrats tried to make it clear that Mr. Flynn’s resignation must be only the first chapter in the story of Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election. Republicans tried to bury it.

    “I think that situation has taken care of itself,” said Representative Jason Chaffetz, chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.

    Speaker Paul D. Ryan sidestepped calls for congressional inquiries into the Flynn episode. He said he welcomed the resignation of Mr. Flynn, saying, “You cannot have a national security adviser misleading the vice president and others.”

    But when asked about calls for congressional inquiries into the episode, he said: “I’m not going to prejudge circumstances surrounding this. I think the administration will explain the circumstances that led to this.”

    Mr. Flynn resigned after admitting he misled Vice President Mike Pence about the contents of his conversations with the Russian ambassador, Sergey I. Kislyak, after the election but before President Trump took office.

    For the Democrats, broader questions have been raised by Russian involvement before and after the election.

    The revelation about Mr. Flynn “reinforces both the urgency and the significance of the Senate Intelligence Committee’s bipartisan investigation into Russian interference,” said Senator Mark Warner, Democrat of Virginia and the vice chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, “which will include a thorough examination of contacts between Russia and individuals associated with political campaigns, as well as interviews with current and former government officials.”

    He added, “It is clear that our task is more urgent than ever.”

    Dozens of other House and Senate Democrats echoed the idea. “The F.B.I. must accelerate its investigation of the Russian connection with the Trump administration, and Congress must call for a bipartisan, independent, outside commission to fully investigate Russia’s influence on the administration and the election,” said Representative Nancy Pelosi of California, the Democratic leader.

    But Republicans, whose leaders have resisted a select committee, remained largely mum.

    In his remarks on the Senate floor Tuesday morning, Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the majority leader, chastised Democrats for moving slowing on the confirmation of Mr. Trump’s cabinet nominees, and did not mention Mr. Flynn.

    In their weekly meeting on Tuesday, House Republicans talked exclusively about efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act, according to a person who attended the meeting.

    Senator Richard J. Durbin, Democrat of Illinois, speaking on the Senate floor, seemed incredulous at the position of his Republican colleagues. “The party of Reagan has spoken zero times about the Russian attack or Flynn’s actions on the floor of the Senate since early October,” Mr. Durbin said, noting Mr. McConnell’s silence on the matter.

    Mr. McCain, the chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, on the other hand, spoke out forcefully.

    “General Flynn’s resignation also raises further questions about the Trump administration’s intentions toward Vladimir Putin’s Russia, including statements by the president suggesting moral equivalence between the United States and Russia despite its invasion of Ukraine, annexation of Crimea, threats to our NATO allies and attempted interference in American elections,” Mr. McCain said in a prepared statement.

    “American policy toward Russia must be made clear and unequivocal: We will honor our commitments to our NATO allies, we will maintain and enhance our deterrent posture in Europe, we will hold Russian violators of human rights accountable for their actions and we will maintain sanctions on Russia so long as it continues to violate the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine,” the statement said.

    However Mr. McCain did not restate his earlier calls for a select committee to investigate Russian interference in the presidential election, which has not been supported by Mr. McConnell, who said any such investigations should be the purview of the relevant Senate committees. Mr. McCain has vowed that his committee will conduct a thorough inquiry.

    WASHINGTON — F.B.I. agents interviewed Michael T. Flynn when he was national security adviser in the first days of the Trump administration about his conversations with the Russian ambassador, current and former officials said on Tuesday.

    The interview raises the stakes of what so far has been a political scandal that cost Mr. Flynn his job. If he was not entirely honest with the F.B.I., it could expose Mr. Flynn to a felony charge. President Trump asked for Mr. Flynn’s resignation on Monday night.

    The New York Times would like to hear from readers who want to share messages and materials with our journalists.

    While it is not clear what he said in his F.B.I. interview, Mr. Flynn maintained publicly for more than a week that his conversations with the ambassador were innocuous and did not involve Russian sanctions, something now known to be false.

    Shortly after the F.B.I. interview, on Jan. 26, the acting attorney general, Sally Q. Yates, told the White House that Mr. Flynn was vulnerable to Russian blackmail because of inconsistencies between what he had said publicly and what intelligence officials knew to be true.
    Document: Michael Flynn’s Resignation Letter

    At issue is a conversation during the presidential transition in which Mr. Flynn spoke to the Russian ambassador about sanctions levied against Russia by the Obama administration. The call spurred an investigation by the F.B.I. into whether Mr. Flynn had violated the Logan Act, which prohibits private citizens from negotiating with foreign governments in disputes with the United States.

    On Tuesday, Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, said that President Trump was made aware of the situation weeks ago. Mr. Spicer said the White House had reviewed the situation and determined that Mr. Flynn didn’t violate any laws during his call with the Russian ambassador.

    Mr. Spicer said Mr. Flynn was asked to resign because he had lost the trust of the president and vice president.

    Frank Ancona, the professed leader of the Traditionalist American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, was shot and killed in Missouri last week in what officials called a “tragic and senseless act of violence.” His wife and stepson were charged in his death on Monday.

    His body was found on a riverbank on Saturday with gunshot wounds to the head, according to the Washington County coroner, Brian DeClue, who called the death a homicide.

    In an interview, he said that Mr. Ancona, 51, was killed with “a shotgun of some sort.” Jerrod Mahurin, the prosecutor in the case, said Mr. Ancona was also shot in the head with a 9-millimeter handgun.

    On Monday, Mr. Ancona’s wife, Malissa Ancona, 44, and stepson, Paul Jinkerson Jr., 24, were charged with a range of crimes in connection with the killing, including first-degree murder and the abandonment of a corpse, according to the St. Francois County Sheriff’s Department.

    The sheriff said Mr. Ancona was killed at his home last Thursday, and his body was then left at a remote location. Mr. Mahurin said he believed the killing happened because of a marital dispute and was not connected to Mr. Ancona’s membership in the K.K.K.

    The Washington County Sheriff’s Office said that it learned of Mr. Ancona’s disappearance on Friday, shortly before his vehicle was discovered on land owned by the United States Forest Service. His body was found on the banks of the Big River in Belgrade, Mo., the next day by a family who had gone to fish.

    In an interview with The New York Times this month, Mr. Ancona said he had been a member of the Klan for more than 30 years. He formed the Traditionalist American Knights in 2009.

    There are at least 29 separate, rival Klan groups currently active in the United States, and they compete with one another for members, dues, news media attention and the title of being the true heir to the Ku Klux Klan, said Mark Potok, a researcher at the Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks extremism in the United States.

    Mr. Ancona’s group was not considered the largest or the most influential iteration of the Klan, but he was skilled at attracting the spotlight. During the 2014 protests in Ferguson, Mo., after the police killing of Michael Brown, Mr. Ancona’s group passed out leaflets in the city, vowing to use “lethal force” against protesters. The fliers got him invited on MSNBC.

    Shortly after, Mr. Ancona explained his beliefs in an interview with a member of the hacker group Anonymous, which later claimed to have gained access to his group’s files and released his personal information.

    This year, the group also distributed fliers in several towns in Maine, far from its base in Park Hills, Mo. Mr. Ancona pointed to these operations as a sign of his group’s popularity and reach, but Mr. Potok said it had no more than a few dozen members in chapters in three states: Missouri, Idaho and Pennsylvania.

    Mr. Ancona promoted the Klan as a nonviolent fraternal organization for white Christian men, something akin to a self-help group that endorsed the separation of the races and opposed what he called “equality propaganda.”

    “I don’t focus on the negative history,” Mr. Ancona said, adding that he did not understand why people were afraid of the Klan. “What Klansman do you ever see go out and see terrorize anyone?”

    But the group’s website and fliers contained a more violent message, including images of hooded Klansmen brandishing nooses, racist cartoons of African-Americans and the letters “KKK” engulfed in flames. In one picture, which appeared to be manipulated, Mr. Ancona stood before a burning cross.

    “They want to portray us as all toothless, redneck tobacco chewers,” Mr. Ancona said this month. “Some of us are! But some of us are college educated. I am a business owner,” he said. “We just believe in promoting traditional American values.”

    Mr. Ancona dismissed the Klan’s violent history as the work of “a few bad apples” in another era. He said killings attributed to the group during the civil rights era were the work of government agents, like those who infiltrated civil rights groups at the time. “I’d say that operation cointelpro really never ended,” he said.

    In reality, the K.K.K. has killed scores of people since it was founded in 1865, the vast majority of them African-Americans. Many of the crimes believed to be committed by the Klan were not investigated, so the precise number of its victims may never be known.

    “Frank Ancona posed as the kinder, gentler Klansman, but he was really none of those things,” Mr. Potok said. “A lot of these characters seem like jokes — and some of them really are — but that doesn’t mean they’re not incredibly dangerous.”

    Frank Ancona, the professed leader of the Traditionalist American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, was shot and killed in Missouri last week in what officials called a “tragic and senseless act of violence.” His wife and stepson were charged in his death on Monday.

    His body was found on a riverbank on Saturday with gunshot wounds to the head, according to the Washington County coroner, Brian DeClue, who called the death a homicide.

    In an interview, he said that Mr. Ancona, 51, was killed with “a shotgun of some sort.” Jerrod Mahurin, the prosecutor in the case, said Mr. Ancona was also shot in the head with a 9-millimeter handgun.

    On Monday, Mr. Ancona’s wife, Malissa Ancona, 44, and stepson, Paul Jinkerson Jr., 24, were charged with a range of crimes in connection with the killing, including first-degree murder and the abandonment of a corpse, according to the St. Francois County Sheriff’s Department.

    The sheriff said Mr. Ancona was killed at his home last Thursday, and his body was then left at a remote location. Mr. Mahurin said he believed the killing happened because of a marital dispute and was not connected to Mr. Ancona’s membership in the K.K.K.

    The Washington County Sheriff’s Office said that it learned of Mr. Ancona’s disappearance on Friday, shortly before his vehicle was discovered on land owned by the United States Forest Service. His body was found on the banks of the Big River in Belgrade, Mo., the next day by a family who had gone to fish.

    In an interview with The New York Times this month, Mr. Ancona said he had been a member of the Klan for more than 30 years. He formed the Traditionalist American Knights in 2009.

    There are at least 29 separate, rival Klan groups currently active in the United States, and they compete with one another for members, dues, news media attention and the title of being the true heir to the Ku Klux Klan, said Mark Potok, a researcher at the Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks extremism in the United States.

    Most recently, Mr. Ancona was accused by rival Klansmen of being secretly Jewish. “It is endless infighting,” Mr. Potok said.

Mr. Ancona pointed to these operations as a sign of his group’s popularity and reach, but Mr. Potok said it had no more than a few dozen members in chapters in three states: Missouri, Idaho and Pennsylvania.

    Mr. Ancona promoted the Klan as a nonviolent fraternal organization for white Christian men, something akin to a self-help group that endorsed the separation of the races and opposed what he called “equality propaganda.”

    “I don’t focus on the negative history,” Mr. Ancona said, adding that he did not understand why people were afraid of the Klan. “What Klansman do you ever see go out and see terrorize anyone?”

    But the group’s website and fliers contained a more violent message, including images of hooded Klansmen brandishing nooses, racist cartoons of African-Americans and the letters “KKK” engulfed in flames. In one picture, which appeared to be manipulated, Mr. Ancona stood before a burning cross.

    “They want to portray us as all toothless, redneck tobacco chewers,” Mr. Ancona said this month. “Some of us are! But some of us are college educated. I am a business owner,” he said. “We just believe in promoting traditional American values.”

    Mr. Ancona dismissed the Klan’s violent history as the work of “a few bad apples” in another era. He said killings attributed to the group during the civil rights era were the work of government agents, like those who infiltrated civil rights groups at the time. “I’d say that operation cointelpro really never ended,” he said.

    In reality, the K.K.K. has killed scores of people since it was founded in 1865, the vast majority of them African-Americans. Many of the crimes believed to be committed by the Klan were not investigated, so the precise number of its victims may never be known.

    “Frank Ancona posed as the kinder, gentler Klansman, but he was really none of those things,” Mr. Potok said. “A lot of these characters seem like jokes — and some of them really are — but that doesn’t mean they’re not incredibly dangerous.”

    Frank Ancona, the professed leader of the Traditionalist American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, was shot and killed in Missouri last week in what officials called a “tragic and senseless act of violence.” His wife and stepson were charged in his death on Monday.

    His body was found on a riverbank on Saturday with gunshot wounds to the head, according to the Washington County coroner, Brian DeClue, who called the death a homicide.

    In an interview, he said that Mr. Ancona, 51, was killed with “a shotgun of some sort.” Jerrod Mahurin, the prosecutor in the case, said Mr. Ancona was also shot in the head with a 9-millimeter handgun.

    On Monday, Mr. Ancona’s wife, Malissa Ancona, 44, and stepson, Paul Jinkerson Jr., 24, were charged with a range of crimes in connection with the killing, including first-degree murder and the abandonment of a corpse, according to the St. Francois County Sheriff’s Department.

    The sheriff said Mr. Ancona was killed at his home last Thursday, and his body was then left at a remote location. Mr. Mahurin said he believed the killing happened because of a marital dispute and was not connected to Mr. Ancona’s membership in the K.K.K.

    The Washington County Sheriff’s Office said that it learned of Mr. Ancona’s disappearance on Friday, shortly before his vehicle was discovered on land owned by the United States Forest Service. His body was found on the banks of the Big River in Belgrade, Mo., the next day by a family who had gone to fish.

    In an interview with The New York Times this month, Mr. Ancona said he had been a member of the Klan for more than 30 years. He formed the Traditionalist American Knights in 2009.

    There are at least 29 separate, rival Klan groups currently active in the United States, and they compete with one another for members, dues, news media attention and the title of being the true heir to the Ku Klux Klan, said Mark Potok, a researcher at the Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks extremism in the United States.

    Most recently, Mr. Ancona was accused by rival Klansmen of being secretly Jewish. “It is endless infighting,” Mr. Potok said.

    Mr. Ancona’s group was not considered the largest or the most influential iteration of the Klan, but he was skilled at attracting the spotlight. During the 2014 protests in Ferguson, Mo., after the police killing of Michael Brown, Mr. Ancona’s group passed out leaflets in the city, vowing to use “lethal force” against protesters. The fliers got him invited on MSNBC.

    Shortly after, Mr. Ancona explained his beliefs in an interview with a member of the hacker group Anonymous, which later claimed to have gained access to his group’s files and released his personal information.

    White House Sends Mixed Signals About Trump’s Confidence in Michael Flynn

    WASHINGTON — Michael T. Flynn, the embattled national security adviser, faced an uncertain future on Monday as White House officials delivered conflicting messages about whether he still enjoys the confidence of President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.

    The Justice Department had warned the White House that Mr. Flynn had misled senior Trump administration officials about whether he had discussed American sanctions against Vladimir V. Putin’s regime during a phone call with Russia’s ambassador to the United States weeks before the inauguration, and that he could be open to blackmail by Russia, said a former senior official.

    At the same time, Mr. Pence has told administration officials that he believes Mr. Flynn lied to him by saying he had not discussed the topic of sanctions on a call with the ambassador in late December. Even the mere discussion of policy — and the apparent attempt to assuage the concerns of an American adversary before Mr. Flynn took office — represents a remarkable breach of protocol.

    The F.B.I. has been examining Mr. Flynn’s phone calls as he has come under growing questions about his interactions with Russian officials and his management of the National Security Council. In addition, the Army has been investigating whether Mr. Flynn received money from the Russian government during a trip he took to Moscow in 2015, according to two defense officials.

    Such a payment might violate the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution, which prohibits former military officers from receiving money from a foreign government without consent from Congress. The defense officials said there was no record that Mr. Flynn, a retired three-star Army general, filed the required paperwork for the trip.

    “The president is evaluating the situation,” Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, told reporters on Monday. Mr. Spicer said Mr. Trump would be talking to Mr. Pence and others about Mr. Flynn’s future.

    In a sign of the internal confusion over Mr. Flynn’s status, the statement from Mr. Spicer came shortly after the president’s counselor, Kellyanne Conway, said in an interview on MSNBC that Mr. Flynn had the “full confidence of the president.”

    The White House has examined a transcript of a wiretapped conversation that Mr. Flynn had with Sergey I. Kislyak, the Russian ambassador, in December, according to administration officials. Mr. Flynn originally told Mr. Pence and others that the call was limited to small talk and holiday pleasantries.

    But the conversation, according to officials who have seen the transcript of the wiretap, also included a discussion about sanctions imposed on Russia after intelligence agencies determined that President Putin’s regime tried to interfere with the 2016 election on Mr. Trump’s behalf.

    Still, current and former administration officials familiar with the call said the transcript was ambiguous enough that Mr. Trump could justify both firing or retaining Mr. Flynn.

    Mr. Trump, however, has become increasingly concerned about the continued fallout over Mr. Flynn’s behavior, according to people familiar with his thinking, and has told aides that the media storm around Mr. Flynn will damage the president’s image on national security issues.

    White House officials have begun discussing the possibility of replacements, and President Trump is consulting Jim Mattis, the secretary of defense and a retired four-star general. Among the options are David H. Petraeus, the former C.I.A. director, and Thomas P. Bossert, head of Mr. Trump’s domestic security council. Mr. Petraeus, a retired four-star general, was forced out as director of the C.I.A. because of an affair with his biographer, to whom he passed classified information. Mr. Petraeus would not need confirmation by the Senate as national security adviser.

    Mr. Petraeus is expected to be at the White House on Tuesday, said a senior administration official who was not authorized to discuss the meeting and spoke on condition of anonymity.

    Even if he stays, Mr. Flynn’s concealment of the call’s content, combined with questions about his management of his agency and reports of a demoralized staff, has put him in a precarious position less than a month into Mr. Trump’s presidency.

    Few members of Mr. Trump’s team are more skeptical of Mr. Flynn than the vice president, numerous administration officials said. Mr. Pence, who used the false information provided by Mr. Flynn to defend him in a series of television appearances, was incensed at Mr. Flynn’s lack of contrition for repeatedly embarrassing him by withholding the information, according to three administration officials familiar with the situation.

    Mr. Flynn and Mr. Pence have spoken twice in the past few days about the matter, but administration officials said that rather than fully apologize and accept responsibility, the national security adviser blamed it on his faulty memory — which irked the typically slow-to-anger Mr. Pence.

    The slight was compounded by an incident late last year when Mr. Pence went on television to deny that Mr. Flynn’s son, who had posted conspiracy theories about Hillary Clinton on social media, had been given a security clearance by the transition team. The younger Mr. Flynn had, indeed, been given such a clearance, even though his father had told Mr. Pence’s team that he hadn’t.

    Mr. Pence has relayed his complaints directly to Mr. Trump but has told White House officials that he will abide by whatever Mr. Trump decides about Mr. Flynn’s fate.

    Officials said classified information did not appear to have been discussed during the conversation between Mr. Flynn and the ambassador, which would have been a crime. The call was captured on a routine wiretap of diplomat’s calls, the officials said.

    But current Trump administration officials and former Obama administration officials said that Mr. Flynn did appear to be reassuring the ambassador that Mr. Trump would adopt a more accommodating tone on Russia once in office.

    Former and current administration officials said that Mr. Flynn urged Russia not to retaliate against any sanctions because an overreaction would make any future cooperation more complicated. He never explicitly promised sanctions relief, one former official said, but he appeared to leave the impression that it would be possible.

    During his 2015 trip to Moscow, Mr. Flynn was paid to attend the anniversary celebration of Russia Today, a television network controlled by the Kremlin. At the banquet, he sat next to Mr. Putin.

    Mr. Flynn had notified the Defense Intelligence Agency, which he once led, that he was taking the trip. He received a security briefing from agency officials before he left, which is customary for former top D.I.A. officials when they travel overseas.

    Still, some senior agency officials were surprised when footage of the banquet appeared on RT, and believed that General Flynn should have been more forthcoming with D.I.A. about the nature of his trip to Russia.

    The following month, the D.I.A. director, Lt. Gen. Vincent Stewart, sent a memo to agency staff members saying agency officials should not provide briefings to former agency leaders during the presidential campaign.

    James Kudla, a D.I.A. spokesman, said the memo was not directly the result of Mr. Flynn’s trip to Russia, but rather an effort by General Stewart to ensure that the agency was not becoming enmeshed in politics.

    “Was the Russia trip one element of it? Yes,” he said. “But it was more broadly to ensure that other former senior officials and D.I.A. staff knew what the rules are to avoid the perception of taking sides.”

    Defense officials said the White House would have to determine what penalty, if any, Mr. Flynn should face if he were found to have violated the Emoluments Clause.

    Capt. Jeff Davis, a Defense Department spokesman, declined to comment.

    Correction: February 13, 2017
    An earlier version of this article misstated the day on which the White House sent out a series of conflicting signals about Michael T. Flynn, the national security adviser. It was Monday, not Tuesday.

    Reporting was contributed by Matt Apuzzo and Eric Schmitt from Washington, and Maggie Haberman from New York.

    Trump Criticized Obama for Golfing. Now He Spends Weekends on the Links.

    As a private citizen, Donald J. Trump was repeatedly critical of President Obama’s fondness for relaxing with a round of golf.

    “Can you believe that, with all of the problems and difficulties facing the U.S., President Obama spent the day playing golf.” Mr. Trump tweeted on Oct. 13, 2014. “Worse than Carter.”

    “We pay for Obama’s travel so he can fundraise millions so Democrats can run on lies,” he said a day later. “Then we pay for his golf.”

    Then for a third time that month, Mr. Trump tweeted about Mr. Obama’s golf habit on Oct. 23, 2014.

    “President Obama has a major meeting on the N.Y.C. Ebola outbreak, with people flying in from all over the country, but decided to play golf!”

    As a president, though, Mr. Trump seems to have had a change of heart about the appropriateness of a president hitting the links.

    On Saturday, Mr. Trump played golf with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of Japan at two of his courses in South Florida: 18 holes at the Trump National Golf Club in Jupiter, and nine more at the Trump International Golf Club in nearby West Palm Beach. On Sunday, he returned, without Mr. Abe, to the club in West Palm Beach for five hours.

    It was the president’s second visit this month to South Florida, where he owns the Mar-a-Lago resort in West Palm Beach along with the golf courses.

    Last weekend, he spent four and a half hours at one of his golf clubs, a day before hosting a Super Bowl Party at Mar-a-Lago, which its original owner, the heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post, named the “winter White House.”

    Little was known about Mr. Trump’s time at either golf club this month — the White House last week declined to confirm whether he even played, or who accompanied him. On Saturday, Mr. Trump and his aides covered doors and windows at the Trump National Golf Club in Jupiter to keep the journalists inside from snapping photos of the president and Mr. Abe on the course.

    But an administration-approved photo appeared on Mr. Trump’s social media pages that showed the two leaders high-fiving under a blue sky dotted with fluffy white clouds, a gigantic American flag waving in the background.

    It was a change for a man who over the past five years had repeatedly criticized the sitting president for golfing, on the grounds that the trips were costly to taxpayers and came at the expense of time that he thought Mr. Obama should have spent on government duties.

    Since Mr. Trump became president, his resort, Mar-a-Lago, has doubled its initiation fee to $200,000, drawing a rebuke from critics who say he is profiting off the presidency. But Mr. Trump and his aides say that using an informal setting outside Washington to entertain foreign leaders — as other presidents have done — will put those dignitaries at ease.

    On Saturday, Mr. Trump told reporters that he and Mr. Abe “got to know each other very, very well” while golfing.

    Mr. Trump was not always so critical of Mr. Obama’s golf habit. In June 2012, he tweeted that he would someday like to play a round of golf with the president.

    Mr. Trump is, by at least one account, a fine golfing companion. In December, he hit the greens with Tiger Woods, who had also played with former Presidents Bill Clinton, Barack Obama and George H. W. Bush.

    Mr. Woods’s game with Mr. Obama, in 2013, became the subject of conservative anger when The Washington Times reported last year that the game had cost taxpayers nearly $4 million. The fact-checking website Snopes found that claim to be mostly false, and noted that the figure was “based on an accounting formula that is often highly misleading about the true costs involved.”

    As for his own round with Mr. Woods, Mr. Trump, in an Instagram post on Dec. 24, said he had had a “great” time, and that they were joined by Mr. Trump’s son Donald Trump Jr. and granddaughter Kai.

    Mr. Woods, in a blog post, said he and Mr. Trump had played for fun while Mr. Woods tested new drivers.

    “What most impressed me was how far he hits the ball at 70 years old,” Mr. Woods wrote. “He takes a pretty good lash,” he said, adding, “Our discussion topics were wide-ranging; it was fun.”

    Julie Hirschfeld Davis contributed reporting.

    When Republicans in Kentucky seized total control of the state government last year, Damon Thayer, the majority leader in the State Senate, began asking around for advice from counterparts in other capitals where the party already dominated both the legislative and executive branches.

    How should we handle all this power? he wanted to know.

    One answer impressed him, Mr. Thayer said, from a senior Republican lawmaker in Wisconsin: “Move quickly.”

    Kentucky Republicans have done just that, swiftly passing laws to roll back the powers of labor unions and restrict access to abortion. But they are only getting started, Mr. Thayer said in an interview: They also plan to make sweeping changes to the education and public pension systems this year.

    And they have plenty of company.

    While Republicans in Washington appear flummoxed by the complexities of one-party rule, struggling with issues from repealing the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare, to paying for President Trump’s promised wall on the Mexican border, rising party leaders in the states seem far more at ease and assertive. Republicans have top-to-bottom control in 25 states now, holding both the governorship and the entire legislature, and Republican lawmakers are acting with lightning speed to enact longstanding conservative priorities.

    In states from New England to the Midwest and across the South, conservative lawmakers have introduced or enacted legislation to erode union powers and abortion rights, loosen gun regulations, expand school-choice programs and slash taxes and spending.

    State Senator Scott L. Fitzgerald of Wisconsin, the Republican majority leader, said conservatives in the states had taken the party’s national victories in November as a directive to “shake up” government.

    “That has been amped up as a result of Donald Trump being elected president,” he said. “There’s a higher expectation now.”

    If Republicans in the states have taken Mr. Trump as an inspiration, in some respects they are also largely unburdened by his personality and his political whims. Republicans in Congress are plainly struggling to overcome deep internal disagreements and to balance traditional conservative goals with Mr. Trump’s distinctive priorities. But for Republicans in state capitals, these are comparatively remote considerations.

    Some Democrats fear that while their own party is consumed nationally with fighting Mr. Trump, leaders and activists may be too distracted to throw up effective roadblocks to the ideological agenda that Republicans are ramming through at the state level.

    “Progressives cannot afford to forget about what’s happening in our backyards,” said Nick Rathod, executive director of State Innovation Exchange, a Colorado-based liberal group focused on state legislatures. “Some of it is even more egregious than what is currently happening in Washington, D.C.”

    Republicans have gained power rapidly in the states since the 2008 presidential election, winning 33 governorships and in many instances entrenching themselves in power through legislative redistricting.

    Riding to office on a wave of discontent with the Obama administration, headstrong governors in states like Wisconsin and Ohio embarked on a ferocious quest to transform their states, repeatedly battling powerful unions and popular backlash. Sidelining Democratic lawmakers and grinding down liberal interest groups, these Republicans may have helped pave the way for Mr. Trump’s victories in a string of traditionally blue Midwestern states last year.

    Acting fastest at the moment, though, are four states where Republicans won total control of the government only in November. In addition to Kentucky, Missouri and New Hampshire became one-party states with the election of Republican governors, and Republicans in Iowa snatched away the State Senate, where Democrats had held their last grip on power.

    In all four states, Republicans are racing to strip back the influence of labor unions, a key Democratic constituency.

    In Missouri, where union membership has waned, Gov. Eric Greitens, a telegenic former member of the Navy SEALs, signed a “right to work” bill into law on Monday, denying unions the power to require that workers at companies they represent pay dues or their equivalent as a condition of employment. In Kentucky, Gov. Matt Bevin signed a similar measure in January, along with the repeal of a law that kept wages high on public construction projects. And in New Hampshire, State Senator Jeb Bradley, the Republican majority leader, said so-called right-to-work legislation was a top priority.

    In Iowa, Republican leaders announced this past week that they would pursue sweeping changes to the collective bargaining rights of public employees. State Senator Bill Dix, the new Republican majority leader, said his party had campaigned on such changes — which would cut deeply into unions’ negotiating power — and intended to make good on its commitments. He said Republicans would also seek to change state laws governing health care and to enshrine in the State Constitution the right to bear arms.

    “Iowans expect us to take action,” Mr. Dix said.

    His counterpart in New Hampshire, Mr. Bradley, a former member of Congress, echoed that language, but cautioned in an interview that Republicans had to move deliberately and not just fast.

    “We can’t just start bonfires that we can’t put out,” he warned. “But we can certainly move forward with a conservative agenda that’s a reasonable conservative agenda.”

    In a Further Blow to Democrats, Republicans Increase Their Hold on State Governments
    Republicans will control the governor’s office and both chambers of the state legislature in four more states — Iowa, Kentucky, Missouri and New Hampshire.

    OPEN GRAPHIC
    Democrats and labor unions, which in the past have been able to thwart conservative legislation with the help of a supportive governor or a bloc of allies in the legislature, describe the onslaught in newly Republican states as overwhelming.

    “They’re killing us here in the state of Missouri,” said John Stiffler, executive secretary-treasurer of the St. Louis Building & Construction Trades Council.

    Some unions in the state, shut out of power, are attempting to put the so-called right-to-work law up for a direct vote in a 2018 referendum. For the moment, Mr. Stiffler said, union leaders are seeking to meet with Mr. Greitens in the hope of finding a compromise on other policies, like prevailing-wage legislation.

    “We’re trying to find a way to get even a small audience with him,” Mr. Stiffler said of Mr. Greitens.

    The Republican agenda in the states goes well beyond limiting unions. Party leaders in Kentucky, New Hampshire and Missouri have signaled that they plan to expand school-choice and charter school programs and, in some instances, to pursue tort reform and to place new regulations on voting.

    Beleaguered Democrats see each policy as devised to undercut one of their core political constituencies: teachers, trial lawyers, minority voters or young people.

    In several states that the party has controlled for a longer span, Republican governors have also announced aggressive plans to overhaul the size and functions of government, including a Wisconsin welfare-overhaul proposal, backed by Gov. Scott Walker, and a large program of tax cuts in Florida, championed by Gov. Rick Scott. Both men were first elected in 2010.

    Republicans in a number of states are also pushing a deeply conservative social agenda.

    In New Hampshire, Mr. Bradley had long been pushing a bill to let people carry concealed guns without a permit; repeatedly, it passed both legislative houses only to be vetoed by Gov. Maggie Hassan, a Democrat.

    “We had no chance of overriding her veto,” lamented the silver-haired Mr. Bradley, but Ms. Hassan was elected to the Senate in November. The gun bill cleared the legislature again on Thursday, and the new Republican governor, Chris Sununu, has “every intention of signing it,” David Abrams, a spokesman of his, said.

    In Kentucky last month, Mr. Bevin, 50, an activist with close ties to the Tea Party, signed a set of new restrictions on abortion, banning the procedure after 20 weeks and requiring that every woman who seeks an abortion undergo an ultrasound first.

    Iowa Republicans have advanced a bill to defund Planned Parenthood; Missouri legislators have filed a barrage of anti-abortion bills, including one that would ban the procedure entirely, in defiance of the Supreme Court. In a handful of states including Missouri and Texas, lawmakers are considering legislation that would designate public restrooms and locker rooms as gender-specific.

    And as Mr. Trump attempts to crack down on “sanctuary cities” at the national level, lawmakers in states like Texas and Tennessee have proposed measures to force municipalities to enforce federal immigration law more assertively.

    Democrats and their allies, including groups like Planned Parenthood, often have little recourse in these states but to rally popular outcry and organize for the next election, or to challenge Republican-enacted policies in court.

    They have succeeded from time to time, including in North Carolina last year, ousting a Republican governor, Pat McCrory, who signed legislation gutting anti-discrimination protections for gay and transgender people. In 2013, Virginia voters broke a Republican monopoly by electing a Democratic governor, Terry McAuliffe, who campaigned in part against abortion restrictions passed by a Republican-controlled legislature.

    And in deep-red Louisiana, voters elected a Democratic governor, John Bel Edwards, in 2015, to succeed the unpopular Bobby Jindal, who pursued a hard-line agenda and briefly ran for president.

    Mr. McAuliffe, one of a growing number of Democrats who have called on the national party to devote more attention to state elections, said Democrats should recognize the role governors play in heading off the kind of conservative legislation they find deeply offensive.

    Mr. McAuliffe, who has used his veto pen 71 times, said Virginia Republicans had pushed “nuttier, more socially divisive legislation than even North Carolina.”

    “This isn’t scare tactics — this is actually happening,” Mr. McAuliffe said. “If you had a Republican governor, he would have had to sign them, and think where we would be today.”

    COMMENTS
    In Iowa, a Democratic state senator, Janet Petersen, said the zeal of the new Republican majority had broken a mood of passivity among rank-and-file Democrats. On the Planned Parenthood issue alone, Ms. Petersen said her office had received about 1,500 emails from alarmed constituents.

    “If there’s one positive thing to come out of this horrible legislation,” she said, “it’s that complacency is gone.”

Eric Greitens, a telegenic former member of the Navy SEALs, signed a “right to work” bill into law on Monday, denying unions the power to require that workers at companies they represent pay dues or their equivalent as a condition of employment. In Kentucky, Gov. Matt Bevin signed a similar measure in January, along with the repeal of a law that kept wages high on public construction projects. And in New Hampshire, State Senator Jeb Bradley, the Republican majority leader, said so-called right-to-work legislation was a top priority.

    In Iowa, Republican leaders announced this past week that they would pursue sweeping changes to the collective bargaining rights of public employees. State Senator Bill Dix, the new Republican majority leader, said his party had campaigned on such changes — which would cut deeply into unions’ negotiating power — and intended to make good on its commitments. He said Republicans would also seek to change state laws governing health care and to enshrine in the State Constitution the right to bear arms.

    “Iowans expect us to take action,” Mr. Dix said.

    His counterpart in New Hampshire, Mr. Bradley, a former member of Congress, echoed that language, but cautioned in an interview that Republicans had to move deliberately and not just fast.

    “We can’t just start bonfires that we can’t put out,” he warned. “But we can certainly move forward with a conservative agenda that’s a reasonable conservative agenda.”

    In a Further Blow to Democrats, Republicans Increase Their Hold on State Governments
    Republicans will control the governor’s office and both chambers of the state legislature in four more states — Iowa, Kentucky, Missouri and New Hampshire.

    OPEN GRAPHIC
    Democrats and labor unions, which in the past have been able to thwart conservative legislation with the help of a supportive governor or a bloc of allies in the legislature, describe the onslaught in newly Republican states as overwhelming.

    “They’re killing us here in the state of Missouri,” said John Stiffler, executive secretary-treasurer of the St. Louis Building & Construction Trades Council.

    Some unions in the state, shut out of power, are attempting to put the so-called right-to-work law up for a direct vote in a 2018 referendum. For the moment, Mr. Stiffler said, union leaders are seeking to meet with Mr. Greitens in the hope of finding a compromise on other policies, like prevailing-wage legislation.

    “We’re trying to find a way to get even a small audience with him,” Mr. Stiffler said of Mr. Greitens.

    The Republican agenda in the states goes well beyond limiting unions. Party leaders in Kentucky, New Hampshire and Missouri have signaled that they plan to expand school-choice and charter school programs and, in some instances, to pursue tort reform and to place new regulations on voting.

    Beleaguered Democrats see each policy as devised to undercut one of their core political constituencies: teachers, trial lawyers, minority voters or young people.

    In several states that the party has controlled for a longer span, Republican governors have also announced aggressive plans to overhaul the size and functions of government, including a Wisconsin welfare-overhaul proposal, backed by Gov. Scott Walker, and a large program of tax cuts in Florida, championed by Gov. Rick Scott. Both men were first elected in 2010.

    Republicans in a number of states are also pushing a deeply conservative social agenda.

    In New Hampshire, Mr. Bradley had long been pushing a bill to let people carry concealed guns without a permit; repeatedly, it passed both legislative houses only to be vetoed by Gov. Maggie Hassan, a Democrat.

    “We had no chance of overriding her veto,” lamented the silver-haired Mr. Bradley, but Ms. Hassan was elected to the Senate in November. The gun bill cleared the legislature again on Thursday, and the new Republican governor, Chris Sununu, has “every intention of signing it,” David Abrams, a spokesman of his, said.

    In Kentucky last month, Mr. Bevin, 50, an activist with close ties to the Tea Party, signed a set of new restrictions on abortion, banning the procedure after 20 weeks and requiring that every woman who seeks an abortion undergo an ultrasound first.

    Iowa Republicans have advanced a bill to defund Planned Parenthood; Missouri legislators have filed a barrage of anti-abortion bills, including one that would ban the procedure entirely, in defiance of the Supreme Court. In a handful of states including Missouri and Texas, lawmakers are considering legislation that would designate public restrooms and locker rooms as gender-specific.

    And as Mr. Trump attempts to crack down on “sanctuary cities” at the national level, lawmakers in states like Texas and Tennessee have proposed measures to force municipalities to enforce federal immigration law more assertively.

    Democrats and their allies, including groups like Planned Parenthood, often have little recourse in these states but to rally popular outcry and organize for the next election, or to challenge Republican-enacted policies in court.

    They have succeeded from time to time, including in North Carolina last year, ousting a Republican governor, Pat McCrory, who signed legislation gutting anti-discrimination protections for gay and transgender people. In 2013, Virginia voters broke a Republican monopoly by electing a Democratic governor, Terry McAuliffe, who campaigned in part against abortion restrictions passed by a Republican-controlled legislature.

    And in deep-red Louisiana, voters elected a Democratic governor, John Bel Edwards, in 2015, to succeed the unpopular Bobby Jindal, who pursued a hard-line agenda and briefly ran for president.

    Mr. McAuliffe, one of a growing number of Democrats who have called on the national party to devote more attention to state elections, said Democrats should recognize the role governors play in heading off the kind of conservative legislation they find deeply offensive.

    Mr. McAuliffe, who has used his veto pen 71 times, said Virginia Republicans had pushed “nuttier, more socially divisive legislation than even North Carolina.”

    “This isn’t scare tactics — this is actually happening,” Mr. McAuliffe said. “If you had a Republican governor, he would have had to sign them, and think where we would be today.”

    In Iowa, a Democratic state senator, Janet Petersen, said the zeal of the new Republican majority had broken a mood of passivity among rank-and-file Democrats. On the Planned Parenthood issue alone, Ms. Petersen said her office had received about 1,500 emails from alarmed constituents.

    “If there’s one positive thing to come out of this horrible legislation,” she said, “it’s that complacency is gone.”

    Hundreds arrested in immigration enforcement raids in at least six states
    The raids marked the first large-scale enforcement of Trump’s order to crack down on the millions of immigrants living here illegally. The actions, which officials said targeted known criminals, also netted some immigrants who did not have criminal records — an apparent departure from Obama administration policy.

    Massive demonstrations by constituents are an early indication of how progressive opposition movements are mobilizing.

    Flynn holds call with Pence amid calls for probes of contacts with Russian ambassador

    By Greg Miller February 10 at 10:57 PM
    National security adviser Michael Flynn spoke privately with Vice President Pence on Friday in an apparent attempt to contain the fallout from the disclosure that Flynn had discussed U.S. sanctions on Russia with that country’s ambassador and then allowed Pence and other White House officials to publicly deny that he had done so, an administration official said.

    The conversations took place as senior Democrats in Congress called for existing investigations of Russia’s interference in the 2016 election to expand in scope to scrutinize Flynn’s contacts with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak weeks before the Trump administration took office.

    Rep. Adam B. Schiff (Calif.), the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said that if the allegations are proved, Flynn should step down.

    “If the now national security adviser was undermining U.S. national security interests, he’s unfit to hold that office,” Schiff said in an interview with The Washington Post. “Compounding the issue is whether he then misled the country about the nature of his contacts.”

    Current and former U.S. officials said that in his conversation with Kislyak in late December, Flynn urged Moscow to show restraint in its response to punitive sanctions being imposed on Russia by the Obama administration, signaling that the Trump administration would revisit the issue when it took office.

    That contact was seen by some U.S. officials as potentially illegal interference in the U.S. relationship with Moscow at a time when U.S. intelligence agencies were concluding that Russia had waged extensive cyber and influence campaigns to upend the 2016 presidential race and help to elect Donald Trump.

    President Trump claimed to be unaware of the Flynn controversy as he traveled to Florida on Friday afternoon as part of a weekend trip with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. In a brief exchange with reporters during the flight south, Trump was asked about the report in The Post that Flynn had discussed sanctions against Russia despite repeated denials.

    “I don’t know about that, I haven’t seen it,” Trump said, according to a transcript of the conversation. “What report is that? I haven’t seen that. I’ll look into that.”

    Flynn’s relationship with Pence was placed under particular strain because the vice president — apparently relying on inaccurate accounts from Flynn — publicly declared that Flynn had never discussed sanctions with the Russian diplomat.

    A senior administration official said Flynn and Pence spoke in person Friday morning and by phone in the evening. Officials declined to discuss the outcome of the conversations. The two men could be seen engaging in an awkward handshake during the day while taking their seats in the audience for Trump’s news conference with Abe.

    The controversy fanned speculation about Flynn’s standing in the White House and whether he would face pressure to resign. The senior administration official disputed that Flynn was in jeopardy.

    “He seems fine,” the official said, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive internal matters. “He’s in every meeting he’s supposed to be doing, fulfilling his job as national security adviser. He’s seeing the president constantly.”

    Flynn also traveled to Florida with Trump.

    Republicans were quiet on the matter Friday, but senior Democrats called for investigations of Flynn’s contacts with Kislyak. Sen. Claire McCaskill (Mo.), ranking Democrat on the Senate Homeland Security Committee, called for FBI Director James B. Comey to testify before the committee on the status of the bureau’s examination of Flynn’s calls.

    Schiff said that he intends to request the intelligence reports on Flynn’s conversations with the Russian ambassador. Their contacts were captured as part of routine U.S. intelligence surveillance of Russian officials in the United States.

    “This is one discrete set of allegations that ought to be simple to prove or disprove,” Schiff said. “If these allegations are true, it ought to compel him to step down.”

    Sens. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) and Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.), both members of the Senate Armed Services Committee, wrote Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis and CIA Director Mike Pompeo requesting a review of Flynn’s security clearance.

    Federal agents conduct immigration enforcement raids in at least six states
    By Lisa Rein, Abigail Hauslohner and Sandhya Somashekhar February 10 at 8:25 PM

    U.S. immigration authorities arrested hundreds of undocumented immigrants in at least a half-dozen states this week in a series of raids that marked the first large-scale enforcement of President Trump’s Jan. 26 order to crack down on the estimated 11 million immigrants living here illegally.

    The raids, which officials said targeted known criminals, also netted some immigrants who did not have criminal records, an apparent departure from similar enforcement waves during the Obama administration that aimed to just corral and deport those who had committed crimes.

    Trump has pledged to deport as many as 3 million undocumented immigrants with criminal records. Last month he also made a change to the Obama administration’s policy of prioritizing deportation for convicted criminals, substantially broadening the scope of who the Department of Homeland Security can target to include those with minor offenses or no convictions at all.

    Immigration officials confirmed that agents this week raided homes and workplaces in Atlanta, Chicago, New York, the Los Angeles area, North Carolina and South Carolina, netting hundreds of people. But Gillian Christensen, a spokeswoman for the Department of Homeland Security, which oversees Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), said they were part of “routine” immigration enforcement actions. ICE dislikes the term “raids,” and prefers to say authorities are conducting “targeted enforcement actions.”

    Christensen said the raids, which began Monday and ended Friday at noon, found undocumented immigrants from a dozen Latin American countries. “We’re talking about people who are threats to public safety or a threat to the integrity of the immigration system,” she said, noting that the majority of those detained were serious criminals, including some who had been convicted of murder and domestic violence.

    Immigration activists said the crackdown went beyond the six states DHS identified, and said they had also documented ICE raids of unusual intensity during the past two days in Florida, Kansas, Texas and Northern Virginia.

    That undocumented immigrants with no criminal records were arrested and could potentially be deported sent a shock through immigrant communities nationwide amid concerns that the U.S. government could start going after law-abiding people.

    “This is clearly the first wave of attacks under the Trump administration, and we know this isn’t going to be the only one,” Cristina Jimenez, executive director of United We Dream, an immigrant youth organization, said Friday during a conference call with immigration advocates.

    ICE agents in the Los Angeles area Thursday swept a number of individuals into custody over the course of an hour, seizing them from their homes and on their way to work in daytime operations, activists said.

    David Marin, ICE’s field director in the Los Angeles area, said in a conference call with reporters Friday that 75 percent of the approximately 160 people detained in the operation this week had felony convictions; the rest had misdemeanors or were in the United States illegally. Officials said Friday night that 37 of those detained in Los Angeles has been deported to Mexico.

    “Dangerous criminals who should be deported are being released into our communities,” Marin said.

    Spanish language radio stations and the local NPR affiliate in Los Angeles have been running public service announcements regarding the hourly “Know Your Rights” seminars the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles scheduled for Friday and Saturday. By the time the 4 p.m. group began Friday, more than 100 others had gathered at group’s office in the Westlake neighborhood just outside downtown.

    A video that circulated on social media Friday appeared to show ICE agents detaining people in an Austin shopping center parking lot. Immigration advocates also reported roadway checkpoints, where ICE appeared to be targeting immigrants for random ID checks, in North Carolina and in Austin. ICE officials denied that authorities used checkpoints during the operations.

    “I’m getting lots of reports from my constituents about seeing ICE on the streets. Teachers in my district have contacted me — certain students didn’t come to school today because they’re afraid,” said Greg Casar, an Austin city council member. “I talked to a constituent, a single mother, who had her door knocked on this morning by ICE.”

    Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-Tex.) said he confirmed with ICE’s San Antonio office that the agency “has launched a targeted operation in South and Central Texas as part of Operation Cross Check.”

    “I am asking ICE to clarify whether these individuals are in fact dangerous, violent threats to our communities, and not people who are here peacefully raising families and contributing to our state,” Castro said in a statement Friday night.

    Hiba Ghalib, an immigration lawyer in Atlanta, said the ICE detentions were causing “mass confusion” in the immigrant community. She said she had heard reports of ICE agents going door-to-door in one largely Hispanic neighborhood, asking people to present their papers.

    “People are panicking,” Ghalib said. “People are really, really scared.”

    Immigration officials acknowledged that authorities had cast a wider net than they would have last year, as the result of Trump’s executive order.

    The Trump administration is facing a series of legal challenges to that order, and on Thursday lost a court battle over a separate executive order to temporarily ban entry into the United States by citizens of seven majority-Muslim countries, as well as by refugees. The administration said Friday that it is considering raising the case to the Supreme Court.

    [Federal appeals court rules 3 to 0 against Trump on travel ban]

    Some activists in Austin and Los Angeles suggested that the raids might be retaliation for those cities’ “sanctuary city” policies. A government aide familiar with the raids said it is possible that the predominantly daytime operations — a departure from the Obama administration’s night raids — meant to “send a message to the community that the Trump deportation force is in effect.”

    Frank Sharry, executive director of America’s Voice, a pro-immigrant advocacy group, said that the wave of detentions harks back to the George W. Bush administration, when workplace raids to sweep up all undocumented workers were common.

    The Obama administration conducted a spate of raids and also pursued a more aggressive deportation policy than any previous president, sending more than 400,000 people back to their birth countries at the height of his deportations in 2012. The public outcry over the lengthy detentions and deportations of women, children and people with minor offenses led Obama in his second term to prioritize convicted criminals for deportation.

    A DHS official confirmed that while immigration agents were targeting criminals, given the broader range defined by Trump’s executive order they also were sweeping up non-criminals in the vicinity who were found to be lacking documentation. It was unclear how many of the people detained would have been excluded under Obama’s policy.

    Federal immigration officials, as well as activists, said that the majority of those detained were adult men, and that no children were taken into custody.

    “Big cities tend to have a lot of illegal immigrants,” said one immigration official who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to speak publicly due to the sensitive nature of the operation. “They’re going to a target-rich environment.”

    Immigrant rights groups said that they were planning protests in response to the raids, including one Friday evening in Federal Plaza in New York City and a vigil in Los Angeles.

    “We cannot understate the level of panic and terror that is running through many immigrant communities,” said Walter Barrientos of Make the Road New York in New York City, who spoke on a conference call with immigration advocates.

    “We’re trying to make sure that families who have been impacted are getting legal services as quickly as possible. We’re trying to do some legal triage,” said Bob Libal, the executive director of Grassroots Leadership, which provides assistance and advocacy work to immigrants in Austin. “It’s chaotic,” he said. The organization’s hotline, he said, had been overwhelmed with calls.

    Jeanette Vizguerra, 35, a Mexican house cleaner whose permit to stay in the country expired this week, said Friday during the conference call that she was newly apprehensive about her scheduled meeting with ICE next week.

    Fearing deportation, Vizguerra, a Denver mother of four — including three who are U.S. citizens — said through an interpreter that she had called on activists and supporters to accompany her to the meeting.

    “I know I need to mobilize my community, but I know my freedom is at risk here,” Vizguerra said.

    A federal appeals court upheld a lower court ruling suspending President Trump’s controversial immigration order barring refugees and citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S. on Feb. 9. (Peter Stevenson/The Washington Post)
    By Matt Zapotosky February 9 at 9:26 PM

    A federal appeals panel has maintained the freeze on President Trump’s controversial immigration order, meaning previously barred refugees and citizens from seven majority-Muslim countries can continue entering the United States.

    In a unanimous 29-page opinion, three judges from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit flatly rejected the government’s argument that suspension of the order should be lifted immediately for national security reasons, and they forcefully asserted their ability to serve as a check on the president’s power.

    The judges wrote that any suggestion that they could not “runs contrary to the fundamental structure of our constitutional democracy.”

    The judges did not declare outright that the ban was meant to disfavor Muslims — essentially saying it was too early for them to render a judgment on that question. But their ruling is undeniably a blow to the government and means the travel ban will remain off for the foreseeable future.

    Trump reacted angrily on Twitter, posting just minutes after the ruling, “SEE YOU IN COURT, THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE!” He later said to reporters that the judges had made “a political decision.”

    “We have a situation where the security of our country is at stake, and it’s a very, very serious situation, so we look forward, as I just said, to seeing them in court,” he said.

    The Justice Department, which was defending the administration’s position, said in a statement it was “reviewing the decision and considering its options.”

    Washington state Attorney General Bob Ferguson, who had sued over the ban, said, “Bottom line, this is a complete victory for the state of Washington,” and declared that the judges’ ruling “effectively granted everything we sought.”

    The Justice Department could now ask the Supreme Court — which often defers to the president on matters of immigration and national security — to intervene. The Supreme Court, though, remains one justice short, and many see it as ideologically split 4 to 4. A tie would keep in place whatever the appeals court decides. The Justice Department could also ask the full 9th Circuit to consider the matter.

    The appeals court opinion was written by Judge Michelle T. Friedland, who was appointed by President Barack Obama; Judge Richard R. Clifton, who was appointed by President George W. Bush; and Judge William C. Canby, who was appointed by President Jimmy Carter. It was detailed, but it does not represent a final judgment on Trump’s immigration ban.

    Last Friday, U.S. District Judge James L. Robart granted the states of Washington and Minnesota a temporary restraining order on the ban. The appeals court judges noted their ruling was a “preliminary one,” and they were deciding only whether the government had “made a strong showing of its likely success” in getting the restraining order thrown out.

    Kellyanne Conway, counselor to the president, said on Fox News: “This ruling does not affect the merits at all. It is an interim ruling, and we’re fully confident now that we’ll get our day in court and have an opportunity to argue this on the merits, that we’ll prevail.”

    The ruling, though, is critically important — as Trump’s ban on refugees lasts only 120 days, and his ban on visitors from Iraq, Iran, Syria, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen lasts only 90 days. The judges also said that while the states of Washington and Minnesota had made serious allegations — and the impact of the order was “immediate and widespread” — the government had not pointed to any substantive evidence to support its need for the ban.

    “The Government has pointed to no evidence that any alien from any of the countries named in the Order has perpetrated a terrorist attack in the United States,” the judges wrote. “Rather than present evidence to explain the need for the Executive Order, the Government has taken the position that we must not review its decision at all.”

    [Travelers from Iran board flights to the United States following stay, attorney says]

    The states have alleged that the executive order harms their businesses and universities, preventing some students and faculty from traveling abroad for fear of being stranded and diminishing the sales tax revenue they receive.

    Legislators and others who had opposed the ban hailed the judges’ ruling and urged Trump to back down.

    “President Trump ought to see the handwriting on the wall that his executive order is unconstitutional,” said Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.). “He should abandon this proposal, roll up his sleeves and come up with a real, bipartisan plan to keep us safe.”

    Sen. Patrick J. Leahy (D-Vt.) said, “If the President were serious about bringing our country together and keeping us safe, he would rescind this arbitrary and discriminatory order and recall what makes our country great.”

    Hillary Clinton, who lost the presidency to Trump in November, posted on Twitter simply, “3-0.”

    Federal immigration law undeniably gives the president broad authority to bar people from coming into the United States, stating that if the president finds “the entry of any aliens” would be “detrimental” to the country’s interests, he can impose restrictions. But lawsuits across the country have alleged that Trump’s particular order ran afoul of the Constitution in that it intentionally discriminated against Muslims.

    At a hearing Tuesday, Justice Department lawyer August Flentje vigorously disputed that the measure was intended to target Muslims. In their ruling, the judges did not reveal their opinion on that question, although they noted Washington and Minnesota had “offered evidence of numerous statements by the President about his intent to implement a ‘Muslim ban’ as well as evidence they claim suggests that the Executive Order was intended to be that ban.”

    Former New York mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani recently said publicly: “So when [Trump] first announced it, he said, ‘Muslim ban.’ He called me up. He said: ‘Put a commission together. Show me the right way to do it legally.’ ” On the campaign trail, Trump himself called for a “complete and total shutdown” of Muslims entering the country.

    The appeals court judges had questioned both sides skeptically at Tuesday’s hearing, seeming particularly interested in what evidence Trump relied upon in implementing his order and what limits the Justice Department saw on the president’s authority to set immigration policy. While Flentje urged them to restore the measure completely, he also at one point offered a fallback position. The judges, he suggested, could limit Robart’s order so that it applied only to foreigners previously admitted to the country who were abroad now or those who wished to travel and return to the United States in the future.

    [Trump decries ‘disgraceful’ opposition as appeals court weighs immigration order]

    They declined to do even that, saying, as written, the president’s executive order could apply even to green-card holders — which it once seemed to do, although the White House counsel later issued guidance saying it did not. The judges said the Justice Department had “offered no authority establishing that the White House counsel is empowered to issue an amended order superseding the Executive Order,” and “in light of the Government’s shifting interpretations of the Executive Order,” they were not convinced that guidance would hold.

    Trump and his supporters have pressed the case that the short-term stoppage on refugees and immigrants from the seven countries is necessary for national security reasons, and they have leveled blunt criticism at the courts. Trump went so far as to suggest on Twitter that if an attack were to happen, the judiciary would be to blame. On Wednesday, he denounced arguments about his order as “disgraceful” and said “a bad high school student” would understand the broad authority the law gives him to impose immigration restrictions.

    A day earlier, Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly told Congress that he thought judges might be considering the issue from an “academic” perspective instead of the national security lens through which he views the world.

    [Trump lashes out at ‘so-called judge’ who temporarily blocked entry ban]

    “Of course, in their courtrooms, they’re protected by people like me,” Kelly said.

    Federal courts in New York, California and elsewhere already had blocked aspects of the ban from being implemented, although one federal judge in Massachusetts declared that he did not think that challengers had demonstrated that they had a high likelihood of success. The case before the 9th Circuit, though, was much broader than the others, because it stemmed from a federal judge’s outright halting of the ban.

    Pentagon journal explores what could happen if a president called for Muslim internment camps
    By Dan Lamothe February 9 at 12:13 PM

    The scholarly journal of the Pentagon’s top general published an essay that examines what someone in his position should do if a president ordered the establishment of Muslim internment camps, one day before President Trump signed an executive order restricting immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries.

    The article appears in the most recent issue of Joint Force Quarterly under the headline “The Viability of Moral Dissent by the Military.” It won an annual essay competition last spring overseen by National Defense University in Washington in the name of then-Defense Secretary Ashton B. Carter, and was published with the winners of two other competitions run in the name of Marine Gen. Joseph F. Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

    The Jan. 26 publication of the essay came at a particularly sensitive time for the Pentagon, which bans engaging in “partisan political activity.” Senior defense officials were caught by surprise by President Trump’s temporary travel ban a day later, which was signed in the Pentagon’s Hall of Heroes along with another order to improve military readiness. The travel restrictions are being contested in federal court.

    [Trump suggests only politics could lead court to rule against his immigration order]

    Dunford, perhaps more so than any other senior officer, has stressed the need for service members to stay out of politics. But academic military journals have explored political issues in the past, such as when the Army War College’s Strategic Studies Institute published a piece by professor emeritus Don M. Snider in 2014 that discussed how forcefully Army Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, then the Joint Chiefs chairman, could dissent from President Barack Obama’s plan to counter the Islamic State.

    The journal typically publishes the winners of the essay competitions in the fall, but the decision was made this time to withhold their publication until January, said Rick Osial, a spokesman for Dunford. One consideration was creating separation from the Nov. 8 presidential election, but the editorial board also wanted to highlight other articles, the spokesman said.

    The essay, authored by Air Force Maj. Lee Turcotte, states at the outset that it is “not a partisan statement, although it unequivocally judges the rising tide of nationalism, isolationism, xenophobia, and anti-Islamic rhetoric occurring throughout the West.” It was submitted for the contest amid frequent claims by Trump during the presidential campaign that he would bar Muslims from entering the country and be open to using torture against detainees.

    “This article explores whether there is ever a moral imperative for the military — primarily senior military leaders — to refuse to obey the direction of civilian leaders,” Turcotte writes. “I believe the answer is yes. In practice, though, disobedience on moral grounds is exceedingly unlikely. The year in the scenario is unstated, but the moral and racial questions of this article are urgent. Security environments, threat perceptions, and moral thresholds can shift more quickly than many people care to acknowledge. Moral debate is not a luxury for other, more secure times.”

    Osial stressed the “fictional, nonpartisan” nature of the essay, and said the category Turcotte won called for entries to “creative, feasible ideas on how best to orchestrate the core competencies of our national security institution.” The selection and publication of the winning essays is in line with the academic mission of National Defense University, he said.

    The political affiliation of the president in Turcotte’s narrative “is deliberately unstated,” the essay says, stating that “no political party has a monopoly on or immunity from ugly ideas.” He writes that he initially intended to address “what I thought was a wildly unlikely hypothetical situation of military involvement in the internment of American citizens” after noting “nationalistic, xenophobic discourse in Europe and the United States,” but shifted gears after exploring how the Army was directly involved in the internment of Japanese American citizens during World War II.

    “Instead of being a far-fetched thought experiment, this article became a straightforward question: ‘Can this happen again?’ ” he writes.

    Turcotte lays out a fictional scenario in which “political figures, media pundits and outspoken citizens began openly questioning whether collective action against Muslim citizens might be militarily necessary” amid a spate of insider attacks in America.

    In response, the fictional chairman of the Joint Chiefs voices “vehement opposition” to imposing internment camps against Muslims. From a military perspective, Turcotte writes, the general says the policy would be disastrous because it would legitimize Islamist propaganda and trigger protests that could lead to U.S. troops using deadly force on Americans. And from a moral perspective, he registers more emotional concerns.

    “The Chairman insisted that the basic premise of a mass internment was antithetical to American values, constitutional principles, and basic human rights, citing the government’s extensive record of apologies and restitution,” Turcotte writes. “The Presidential administration insisted it was a matter of supreme emergency. Amends could be made after the fact, if necessary.”

    When the president follows through on his plan, the chairman resigns immediately, although he is “deeply conflicted” about doing so, the essay says. The chairman has no expectation that he can lead opposition to the president’s plan, and is “treated with utter contempt and vitriol by segments of the media,” Turcotte writes.

    The concept of a senior officer leaving his post due to disagreements with an administration is periodically discussed in military classrooms. In one real-life example cited by Turcotte, Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Ronald Fogleman asked to retire early in 1997 due to differences of opinion with other senior leaders, including the Defense Department citing Air Force Brig. Gen. Terryl J. “Terry” Schwalier for security lapses that allowed the June 1996 bombing of the Khobar Towers complex in Saudi Arabia, which killed 19 people.

    Dunford’s relationship with Trump was scrutinized after the White House released a memo Jan. 27 stating that he will not be a regular member of the National Security Council’s principals committee and instead invited when “issues pertaining to their responsibilities and expertise are to be discussed.” White House Secretary Sean Spicer said afterward that Dunford is still welcome at any principals committee he would like to attend, and Dunford released a statement stating it was clear he would be able to fully participate in interagency government efforts.

    “I remain honored and humbled to represent the extraordinary men and women of the Joint Force in serving the President and our Nation,” Dunford said.

    Japanese nuclear plant just recorded an astronomical radiation level. Should we be worried?
    By Anna Fifield and Yuki Oda February 8

    TOKYO — The utility company that operated the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant in Japan — the one that went into triple meltdown after the enormous 2011 earthquake and tsunami — has released some jaw-dropping figures.

    The radiation level in the containment vessel of reactor 2 has reached as high as 530 sieverts per hour, Tokyo Electric Power Co. — or Tepco, as it’s known — said last week. This far exceeds the previous high of 73 sieverts per hour recorded at the reactor following the March 2011 disaster.

    That was the world’s worst nuclear disaster since the one at Chernobyl, in Ukraine, in 1986. Almost 16,000 people were killed along Japan’s northeastern coast in the tsunami, and 160,000 more lost their homes and livelihoods. The cleanup is taking much longer than expected.

    Today’s WorldView

    What’s most important from where the world meets Washington

    At this level of radioactivity, a person could die from the briefest of exposures.

    Tepco recorded the radiation near the reactor core, suggesting that some melted fuel had escaped, using a long, remote-controlled camera and radiation measurement device. It was the first time this kind of device has been able to get into this part of the reactor. There it found a three-foot-wide hole in a metal grate in the reactor’s primary containment vessel.

    So, how dangerous is this?

    At this level of radiation, a robot would be able to operate for less than two hours before it was destroyed, Tepco said.

    And Japan’s National Institute of Radiological Sciences said medical professionals had never even thought about encountering this level of radiation in their work.

    According to the Kyodo news agency, the institute estimates that exposure to one sievert of radiation could lead to infertility, loss of hair and cataracts, while four sieverts would kill half the people exposed to it.

    This measuring device hasn’t even gone into reactors 1 and 3 yet — that’s still in the works.

    So should the people who live in Japan, who live on the Pacific basin be freaking out?

    Not yet, some analysts say.

    Although the radiation level is “astoundingly high,” says Azby Brown of Safecast, a citizen science organization that monitors radiation levels, it doesn’t necessarily signify any alarming change in radiation levels at Fukushima. It’s simply the first time they have been measured that far inside the reactor.

    Here’s what Brown wrote on Safecast’s website:

    It must be stressed that radiation in this area has not been measured before, and it was expected to be extremely high. While 530 Sv/hr is the highest measured so far at Fukushima Daiichi, it does not mean that levels there are rising, but that a previously unmeasurable high-radiation area has finally been measured. Similar remote investigations are being planned for Daiichi Units 1 and 3. We should not be surprised if even higher radiation levels are found there, but only actual measurements will tell.

    Hiroshi Miyano, a nuclear expert and visiting professor at Hosei University, also warned against overreacting. He said the radiation reading might not be particularly reliable since it was only an estimation based on the image analysis. (Tepco said there was a margin of error of 30 percent.)

    “It’s not something new to worry about,” he said, although he added that it underscored how difficult the next steps would be.

    But some think there is cause for concern.

    Fumiya Tanabe, a nuclear safety expert and former chief research scientist at the Japan Atomic Energy Research Institute, said while experts expected the radiation reading inside the Daiichi reactors to be high, it was still “shocking” to learn how high it was six years on.

    “It will be very difficult to operate robots in there for a long time to come, and to remove the melted fuel. So the finding might greatly affect the decommissioning time schedule,” he said.

    Tepco had been hoping to start taking the fuel out in 2021.

    Japan’s trade ministry has almost doubled the estimated cost of compensation for the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster and decommissioning of the damaged Fukushima-Daiichi nuclear plant to more than 20 trillion yen. (Reuters)

    Could the radiation level be even higher?

    Possibly. The 530 sievert reading was recorded some distance from the melted fuel, so in reality it could be 10 times higher than recorded, said Hideyuki Ban, co-director of Citizens’ Nuclear Information Center.

    He agreed with Tanabe, saying that the findings underscore how difficult the decommissioning process will be.

    “It definitely shows the path towards decommissioning will be very difficult, and the time frame to start taking out the fuel in 2021 will most likely be delayed as more investigations will be necessary,” Ban said.

    Still, he cautioned against overreacting, saying, like Brown, that Tepco had simply not been able to measure this close to the fuel before.

    So what does this news portend?

    Tanabe said that the level of the reading should give pause to proponents of nuclear power in Japan, including Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who has been pushing to restart reactors shut down after the 2011 disaster.

    “It’s unbelievable that anyone would want to restart nuclear plants when Japan hasn’t learned how and why the Fukushima Daiichi accident happened, or learned lessons from it,” he said.

    Indeed, Ai Kashiwagi, an energy campaigner at Greenpeace Japan, said the findings showed how little the government and Tepco knew about what was happening inside the reaction.

    “The prime minister said everything was under control and has been pushing to restart nuclear plants, but no one knew the actual state of the plant and more serious facts could come out in the future,” she said. “It’s important to keep an eye on radiation-monitoring data and how Tepco’s investigations go.”

    I’d imagine that the number of people present when the president speaks to a foreign leader is not that large. Probably the main advisors, and a translator if necessary. So the person leaking must be fairly high up in Trump’s administration if that person is in a position to know what transpired between Trump and other leader. Which leads to the question: why would such a person leak obviously damaging information about Trump?

    A day earlier, Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly told Congress that he thought judges might be considering the issue from an “academic” perspective instead of the national security lens through which he views the world.

    [Trump lashes out at ‘so-called judge’ who temporarily blocked entry ban]

    “Of course, in their courtrooms, they’re protected by people like me,” Kelly said.

    Federal courts in New York, California and elsewhere already had blocked aspects of the ban from being implemented, although one federal judge in Massachusetts declared that he did not think that challengers had demonstrated that they had a high likelihood of success. The case before the 9th Circuit, though, was much broader than the others, because it stemmed from a federal judge’s outright halting of the ban.

    Trump suggests only politics could lead court to rule against his immigration order

    Trump reads immigration law and defends his order Embed Share Play Video2:24
    In a speech to law enforcement officials, Feb. 8, President Trump read federal law giving broad him broad authority to set immigration restrictions, adding, “a bad high school student would understand this.” (The Washington Post)
    By Matt Zapotosky and Robert Barnes February 8 at 11:13 AM
    President Trump denounced arguments against his immigration order as “disgraceful” on Wednesday, a day after three federal appellate judges lobbed critical inquiries at those challenging and defending the plan, and suggested a ruling against his administration would be based on politics and not a fair reading of the law.

    In a speech to law enforcement officials in Washington, Trump argued his executive action is clearly legal and read aloud the relevant part of the law, which he called “so simple and so beautifully written and so perfectly written.”

    PUBLICIDAD

    “I watched last night, in amazement, and I heard things that I couldn’t believe, things that really had nothing to do with what I just read,” he said. “And I don’t ever want to call a court biased, so I won’t call it biased. And we haven’t had a decision yet. But courts seem to be so political and it would be so great for our justice system if they would be able to read a statement and do what’s right.”

    Trump insisted the order was within his executive powers and “a bad high school student would understand this.”

    The panel from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit on Tuesday aggressively questioned a Justice Department lawyer about what he considered the limits on the president’s power and what evidence Trump relied upon in temporarily barring refugees and citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States.

But President Trump’s executive order halting the entry of Syrian refugees to the U.S. left them stranded in Istanbul as they tried to figure out whether coming to America was still possible. (Dalton Bennett, Ahmed Deeb/The Washington Post)
    But the panel similarly interrogated Washington state’s solicitor general, who is challenging the president’s directive, over what evidence he had to demonstrate religious discrimination and whether a lower-court judge’s freeze on the ban was too broad.

    The court said it expects to make a decision on the matter “probably this week,” and Judge Michelle Taryn Friedland promised rapid consideration. The ruling could affect tens of thousands of travelers whose visas were revoked by the initial executive order, then restored after U.S. District Judge James L. Robart in Seattle put a nationwide stop to it.

    The issue of whether the order is allowed to remain in place while legal challenges continue is likely to end up at the Supreme Court. But it will be harder for the Trump administration to prevail at the high court if the appeals court rules that a nationwide halt is warranted.

    The broad legal question is whether Trump acted within his authority in blocking the entry of people from Iraq, Iran, Somalia, Sudan, Libya, Syria and Yemen, or whether his order essentially amounts to a discriminatory ban on Muslims. The judges must also weigh the harm the ban imposes and whether it is proper for them to intervene in a national security matter on which the president is viewed as the ultimate authority.

    Earlier Wednesday, Trump added to his barrage of comments decrying the challenge to the order, and casting blame if the decision does not go his way. “If the U.S. does not win this case as it so obviously should, we can never have the security and safety to which we are entitled,” Trump tweeted. “Politics!”

    Later, before his address to the police chiefs and sheriffs, Trump appeared to describe the legal challenges as “horrible, dangerous and wrong.”

    Justice Department lawyer August E. Flentje argued Tuesday that the order was “well within the president’s power,” asserting that Congress and a previous administration had designated the seven affected countries as having problems with terrorism — albeit in a different context.

    Who is affected by Trump’s travel ban VIEW GRAPHIC
    Some of the judges, though, seemed wary of that claim. Friedland, who was appointed by President Barack Obama, asked Flentje if the government had “pointed to any evidence connecting these countries with terrorism.”

    Judge Richard Clifton, a President George W. Bush appointee, noted that the government already had processes in place to screen people coming from those countries and asked, “Is there any reason for us to think that there’s a real risk or that circumstances have changed such that there’s a real risk?”

    “The president determined that there was a real risk,” Flentje responded.

    Washington state Solicitor General Noah Purcell argued that the government was essentially asking the court to “abdicate” its role as a check on the executive branch, and he asserted that reinstating the ban would “throw the country back into chaos.”

    But Purcell, too, faced critical questions. Clifton said that he was having “trouble understanding why we’re supposed to infer religious animus when in fact the vast majority of Muslims would not be affected” — a key point, as the state is trying to demonstrate that Trump’s order is intentionally discriminatory and runs afoul of the Constitution.

    Purcell pointed to public statements from Trump and his allies. Former New York mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani, for example, recently said: “So when [Trump] first announced it, he said, ‘Muslim ban.’ He called me up. He said: ‘Put a commission together. Show me the right way to do it legally.’ ”

    Flentje disputed that the order is a Muslim ban, and he said the judges should limit their consideration to the executive order itself.

    “It is extraordinary to enjoin the president’s national security determination based on some newspaper articles, and that’s what has happened here,” he said.

    [Federal appeals court decides to schedule a hearing on Trump travel order]

    Whichever side loses is sure to take the fight to the Supreme Court. That traditionally has been solid ground for presidents. Justices often defer to a president on matters of immigration and national security, because of his constitutional powers and an additional grant of authority from Congress.

    The politically divisive fight comes as the Supreme Court remains shorthanded following the death of Justice Antonin Scalia nearly a year ago; the four Democratic-appointed liberals and four Republican-appointed conservatives often split.

    Trump said at a White House event Tuesday that he was prepared to elevate the dispute as needed.

    “We’re going to take it through the system,” he told reporters. “It’s very important for the country … We’ll see what happens. We have a big court case. We’re well represented.”

    Flentje did offer something of a compromise for the judges Tuesday, saying they could limit the lower-court judge’s ruling to foreigners previously admitted to the country who were abroad now or those who wished to travel and return to the United States in the future.

    Purcell countered that officials had not explained how they would practically implement such an order.

    In addition to Clifton and Friedland, the case was heard by William C. Canby Jr., who was appointed by President Jimmy Carter. The hearing was conducted via telephone, with Friedland listening from San Jose, Canby from Phoenix and Clifton from Hono­lulu.

    If those judges turn down the administration’s appeal and the matter moves immediately to the Supreme Court, the argument would be only on the temporary restraining order, and it would require five justices to reverse the lower court’s actions.

    The high court faced a similar issue last term, when a Texas judge imposed a nationwide halt on an executive action from Obama that would have shielded more than 4 million immigrants who were in the country illegally, but who met certain requirements to get work permits. The justices then split 4 to 4 on the matter.

    If five justices could not agree, the case would return to Robart, the district judge, to decide whether Trump’s order should be permanently enjoined. The fight up the legal ladder would then begin anew — possibly taking months, past when the travel ban is set to expire.

    Homeland Security Secretary John F. Kelly predicted Tuesday that the administration would prevail in its bid to reinstate the executive order and said judges might be considering the matter from an “academic,” rather than a national security, perspective.

    “Of course, in their courtrooms, they’re protected by people like me,” he said.

    Testifying before the House Homeland Security Committee, Kelly forcefully defended the measure as a necessary “pause” so officials could improve vetting procedures. He said that it is “entirely possible” that dangerous people are now entering the country with the order on hold — as Trump has said via Twitter — and that officials might not know about them until it is too late.

    “Not until the boom,” he said when asked if he could provide evidence of a dangerous person coming into the country since the ban was suspended.

    [Trump and his aides keep justifying the entry ban by citing attacks it couldn’t have prevented]

    Kelly’s view does not reflect the consensus of the national security community. Ten high-ranking diplomatic and security officials — among them former secretaries of state John F. Kerry and Madeleine Albright, former CIA director Leon E. Panetta, and former CIA and National Security Agency director Michael V. Hayden — said in a legal filing that there was “no national security purpose” for a complete barring of people from the seven affected countries.

    Kelly also acknowledged Tuesday that if he were given a second chance, he might do things differently in rolling out the order. That stands somewhat in contrast to Trump’s recent assertion to Fox News Channel’s Bill O’Reilly that the implementation was “very smooth,” and it is important because — if the appeals court reinstates the ban — Kelly might get another crack at implementation.

    “In retrospect, I should have — this is all on me, by the way — I should have delayed it just a bit, so that I could talk to members of Congress, particularly the leadership of committees like this, to prepare them for what was coming, although I think most people would agree that this has been a topic of President Trump certainly during his campaign and during the transition process,” Kelly said.

    He later said, though, that most of the confusion that followed the signing of the order was attributable to court orders and occurred not among Customs and Border Protection officers but among protesters in airports. After people were initially detained and deported, demonstrators packed airports to voice their displeasure, and civil liberties and immigration lawyers filed lawsuits across the country.

    Many of those suits are ongoing, with lawyers keeping a close eye on the proceedings at the 9th Circuit. On Tuesday, a group of lawyers asked a federal judge in New York to force the government to turn over a list of those who had been detained or deported, as the court had previously ordered officials to do. The government has said no one is being detained and has debated what information it is required to provide.

    “Noncompliance of a court order is very serious, especially where people’s lives are at stake,” said Lee Gelernt, deputy director of the ACLU’s Immigrants’ Rights Project. “We filed this motion to enforce because the government left us no choice.”

    John Wagner contributed to this report.

    “We’re going to take it through the system,” he told reporters. “It’s very important for the country … We’ll see what happens. We have a big court case. We’re well represented.”

    Flentje did offer something of a compromise for the judges Tuesday, saying they could limit the lower-court judge’s ruling to foreigners previously admitted to the country who were abroad now or those who wished to travel and return to the United States in the future.

    Purcell countered that officials had not explained how they would practically implement such an order.

    In addition to Clifton and Friedland, the case was heard by William C. Canby Jr., who was appointed by President Jimmy Carter. The hearing was conducted via telephone, with Friedland listening from San Jose, Canby from Phoenix and Clifton from Hono­lulu.

    If those judges turn down the administration’s appeal and the matter moves immediately to the Supreme Court, the argument would be only on the temporary restraining order, and it would require five justices to reverse the lower court’s actions.

    The high court faced a similar issue last term, when a Texas judge imposed a nationwide halt on an executive action from Obama that would have shielded more than 4 million immigrants who were in the country illegally, but who met certain requirements to get work permits. The justices then split 4 to 4 on the matter.

    If five justices could not agree, the case would return to Robart, the district judge, to decide whether Trump’s order should be permanently enjoined. The fight up the legal ladder would then begin anew — possibly taking months, past when the travel ban is set to expire.

    Homeland Security Secretary John F. Kelly predicted Tuesday that the administration would prevail in its bid to reinstate the executive order and said judges might be considering the matter from an “academic,” rather than a national security, perspective.

    “Of course, in their courtrooms, they’re protected by people like me,” he said.

    Testifying before the House Homeland Security Committee, Kelly forcefully defended the measure as a necessary “pause” so officials could improve vetting procedures. He said that it is “entirely possible” that dangerous people are now entering the country with the order on hold — as Trump has said via Twitter — and that officials might not know about them until it is too late.

    “Not until the boom,” he said when asked if he could provide evidence of a dangerous person coming into the country since the ban was suspended.

    [Trump and his aides keep justifying the entry ban by citing attacks it couldn’t have prevented]

    Kelly’s view does not reflect the consensus of the national security community. Ten high-ranking diplomatic and security officials — among them former secretaries of state John F. Kerry and Madeleine Albright, former CIA director Leon E. Panetta, and former CIA and National Security Agency director Michael V. Hayden — said in a legal filing that there was “no national security purpose” for a complete barring of people from the seven affected countries.

    Kelly also acknowledged Tuesday that if he were given a second chance, he might do things differently in rolling out the order. That stands somewhat in contrast to Trump’s recent assertion to Fox News Channel’s Bill O’Reilly that the implementation was “very smooth,” and it is important because — if the appeals court reinstates the ban — Kelly might get another crack at implementation.

    “In retrospect, I should have — this is all on me, by the way — I should have delayed it just a bit, so that I could talk to members of Congress, particularly the leadership of committees like this, to prepare them for what was coming, although I think most people would agree that this has been a topic of President Trump certainly during his campaign and during the transition process,” Kelly said.

    He later said, though, that most of the confusion that followed the signing of the order was attributable to court orders and occurred not among Customs and Border Protection officers but among protesters in airports. After people were initially detained and deported, demonstrators packed airports to voice their displeasure, and civil liberties and immigration lawyers filed lawsuits across the country.

    Many of those suits are ongoing, with lawyers keeping a close eye on the proceedings at the 9th Circuit. On Tuesday, a group of lawyers asked a federal judge in New York to force the government to turn over a list of those who had been detained or deported, as the court had previously ordered officials to do. The government has said no one is being detained and has debated what information it is required to provide.

    “Noncompliance of a court order is very serious, especially where people’s lives are at stake,” said Lee Gelernt, deputy director of the ACLU’s Immigrants’ Rights Project. “We filed this motion to enforce because the government left us no choice.”

    President Trump nominated Colorado federal appeals court judge Neil Gorsuch for the Supreme Court on Tuesday, opting in the most important decision of his young presidency for a highly credentialed favorite of the conservative legal establishment to fill the opening created last year by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia.

    Gorsuch, 49, prevailed over the other finalist, Thomas Hardiman of Pennsylvania, also a federal appeals court judge, and Trump announced the nomination at a televised prime-time event at the White House.

    The bonhomie of the ceremony was in stark contrast to the reaction of Democrats, who are ready for a pitched battle over the future of the Supreme Court. Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) said Gorsuch will have to win over some Democratic senators to get the 60 votes needed to clear procedural hurdles.

    Trump broke tradition by entering the White House ceremony by himself, rather than alongside his nominee. He declared that after “what may be the most transparent judicial selection process in history,” he had delivered on a campaign promise to “find the very best judge in America” for the court.

    Gorsuch took a humbler approach, and showed the flair for language that has won him praise as a legal writer.

    The path ahead for Neil Gorsuch, Trump’s Supreme Court nominee VIEW GRAPHIC
    “Standing here in a house of history, and acutely aware of my own imperfections, I pledge that if I am confirmed I will do all my powers permit to be a faithful servant of the Constitution and laws of this great country,” said Gorsuch, with his wife Louise at his side.

    Gorsuch pledged to be impartial and independent, and respectful of his place in government.

    “It is the role of judges to apply, not alter, the work of the people’s representatives,” he said. “A judge who likes every outcome he reaches is very likely a bad judge.”

    Gorsuch’s pick won extravagant praise from Republicans and conservatives, something that has been rare in the Trump administration’s combustible start. The president noted that Gorsuch had been confirmed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit 10 years ago without objection.

    “I can only hope that both Democrats and Republicans can come together for once for the good of the country,” Trump said.

    That is unlikely. Democrats and liberals are still furious that the Republican Senate did not allow a vote on former President Barack Obama’s choice for the Scalia seat, Judge Merrick Garland, and vowed to contest Gorsuch.

    An early sign of discontent: Trump invited senior Democratic senators to the White House for a reception to meet his Supreme Court pick, but they declined, according to senior aides.

    The scene as President Trump announced his Supreme Court nominee
    View Photos President Trump chose Neil Gorsuch, a judge seen as similar to the late justice Antonin Scalia, for the Supreme Court.
    A group of legal and civil rights groups blasted the nomination, saying Gorsuch was a tool of conservative activists who would gut protections for consumers, workers, clean air and water, safe food and medicine and roll back the rights of women and LGBT people.

    Gorsuch and Hardiman, 51, emerged from a list of 21 as Trump’s most likely choices. A third person on the shortlist — U.S. Appeals Court Judge William H. Pryor Jr. of Alabama — saw his chances diminish as some Senate Republican leaders have said his confirmation would be difficult.

    Trump considered six and met with four, including a federal district judge from Kentucky, Amul R. Thapar.

    Gorsuch got the word Monday, and the couple went to a neighbor’s house in Boulder, where they were met by a team from the White House Counsel’s Office. They were ferried along a country road to the airport, where they boarded a military jet to Washington.

    [Read speeches and key cases of Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch]

    Gorsuch is seen as a less bombastic version of Scalia and would seem destined to be a solidly conservative vote on the ideologically split court. But friends and supporters describe Gorsuch as being more interested in persuasion than Scalia, who was just as likely to go it alone as to compromise.

    Gorsuch would be the youngest Supreme Court justice since Clarence Thomas was confirmed in 1991. But Gorsuch has been on the bench for a decade, and at his 2006 investiture ceremony, friends joked that his prematurely gray hair was fitting.

    “When Neil came to our firm in 1995 he had gray hair,” said one of his law partners, Mark C. Hansen. “In fact, he was born with silver hair, as well as an inexhaustible store of Winston Churchill quotes.”

    Indeed, Gorsuch came equipped for the ultimate judicial elevation.

    There is a family connection to Republican establishment politics, and service in the administration of George W. Bush. There is a glittery Ivy League résumé — Columbia undergrad, Harvard Law — along with a Marshall scholarship to Oxford. There is a partnership at one of Washington’s top litigation law firms and a string of successful cases.

    There is a Supreme Court clerkship; Gorsuch was hired by Justice Byron White, a fellow Colorado native, who shared him with Justice Anthony M. Kennedy.

    Kennedy stood by that day in Denver to administer the judicial oath, and if Gorsuch is confirmed, Kennedy would become the first justice to sit with a former clerk on the Supreme Court’s mahogany bench.

    But those who know Gorsuch and have studied his decade of solidly conservative opinions on the Court of Appeals say he more resembles the man he would replace — the late Justice Scalia — than the more moderate Kennedy.

    Like Scalia, Gorsuch is a proponent of originalism — meaning that judges should attempt to interpret the words of the Constitution as they were understood at the time they were written — and a textualist who considers only the words of the law being reviewed, not legislators’ intent or the consequences of the decision.

    Critics say that those neutral considerations inevitably lead Gorsuch to conservative outcomes, a criticism that was also leveled at Scalia.

    Gorsuch would like to curb the deference that courts give to federal agencies and is most noted for a strong defense of religious liberty in cases brought by private companies and religious nonprofit groups objecting to the contraceptive mandate in the Affordable Care Act.

    Gorsuch said in a speech last spring that as a judge he had tried to follow Scalia’s path.

    “The great project of Justice Scalia’s career was to remind us of the differences between judges and legislators,” Gorsuch told an audience at Case Western Reserve University School of Law in Cleveland.

    Legislators “may appeal to their own moral convictions and to claims about social utility to reshape the law as they think it should be in the future,” Gorsuch said. But “judges should do none of these things in a democratic society.” Instead, they should use “text, structure and history” to understand what the law is, “not to decide cases based on their own moral convictions or the policy consequences they believe might serve society best.”

    But those who know him say he lacks Scalia’s combustible, combative style.

    “He has very strong opinions, but he just treats people well in every context,” said Melissa Hart, a University of Colorado law professor. She is a Democrat who clerked for former Justice John Paul Stevens and knows Gorsuch because he has taught judicial ethics, legal writing and antitrust law at the school.

    Gorsuch was born in Colorado and lives outside of Boulder with his wife, Louise, whom he met while at Oxford, and two daughters. The nominee is an Episcopalian, and would be the court’s only Protestant. There are five Catholic and three Jewish members.

    But he spent formative years in Washington and graduated from Georgetown Prep. He witnessed firsthand how difficult Washington politics can be. His mother was Anne Gorsuch Burford, a lawyer and conservative Colorado legislator who was picked by President Ronald Reagan as the first woman to head the Environmental Protection Agency. Her tenure was short and rocky: She clashed with environmentalists and was cited for contempt of Congress in 1982 for refusing to turn over subpoenaed agency documents relating to hazardous waste sites. Although she was following the legal advice of the Justice Department, Burford was forced to resign when the administration gave up the fight. She died in 2004.

    After his Supreme Court clerkship, Gorsuch joined the D.C. law firm of Kellogg Huber Hansen Todd Evans & Figel, where he developed a taste for litigation and eventually became a partner. He helped secure what his former partner Hansen said was the largest antitrust award in history and won praise for his courtroom style.

    Gorsuch did a short stint as a high-ranking official in the Justice Department and then was nominated to the appeals court by Bush. He sailed through on a voice vote in the full Senate and took his seat on the Denver-based court in August 2006.

    Gorsuch is popular with current Supreme Court justices, and his clerks regularly are hired for a term on the high court, not just by conservatives but also by liberals such as Kagan and Justice Sonia Sotomayor.

    On the appeals court, Gorsuch has not been called upon to consider two hot-button social issues that may come before the Supreme Court: same-sex marriage and abortion.

    After a federal judge in Utah struck down that state’s prohibition on same-sex marriage, Gorsuch was not a member of the 10th Circuit that upheld the decision. It was one of the cases that eventually led to the Supreme Court deciding marriage was a fundamental right that could not be denied gay couples.

    Likewise, Gorsuch has not ruled on abortion. But activists on both sides of the issue believe they know where he stands. They point to language in his book “The Future of Assisted Suicide and Euthanasia,” in which he opines that “all human beings are intrinsically valuable and the intentional taking of human life by private persons is always wrong.”

    Additionally, his rulings on behalf of those who challenged the Obamacare mandate that employee insurance coverage provide all approved contraceptives seemed instructive. He noted the provision would require the objecting businesses to “underwrite payments for drugs or devices that can have the effect of destroying a fertilized human egg.”

    Gorsuch’s opinions favoring the owners of the Hobby Lobby craft stores and a nonprofit religious group called Little Sisters of the Poor took the same sort of broad reading of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act as the Supreme Court’s conservative majority.

    In Gorsuch’s words, the law “doesn’t just apply to protect popular religious beliefs: it does perhaps its most important work in protecting unpopular religious beliefs, vindicating this nation’s long-held aspiration to serve as a refuge of religious tolerance.”

    Hart, the Democratic law professor, said she resents what Republicans did on the Garland nomination but does not believe there is a “principled reason to block” Gorsuch.

    “He will have a strong influence on the court because he’s a very persuasive writer,” she said. “That’s a little scary, but it’s not disqualifying.”

    President Trump has chosen Colorado appeals court judge Neil Gorsuch as his pick for the Supreme Court. (Victoria Walker/The Washington Post)
    By Robert Barnes January 31 at 10:12 PM
    President Trump nominated Colorado federal appeals court judge Neil Gorsuch for the Supreme Court on Tuesday, opting in the most important decision of his young presidency for a highly credentialed favorite of the conservative legal establishment to fill the opening created last year by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia.

    Gorsuch, 49, prevailed over the other finalist, Thomas Hardiman of Pennsylvania, also a federal appeals court judge, and Trump announced the nomination at a televised prime-time event at the White House.

    PUBLICIDAD
    inRead invented by Teads
    The bonhomie of the ceremony was in stark contrast to the reaction of Democrats, who are ready for a pitched battle over the future of the Supreme Court. Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) said Gorsuch will have to win over some Democratic senators to get the 60 votes needed to clear procedural hurdles.

    Trump broke tradition by entering the White House ceremony by himself, rather than alongside his nominee. He declared that after “what may be the most transparent judicial selection process in history,” he had delivered on a campaign promise to “find the very best judge in America” for the court.

    Gorsuch took a humbler approach, and showed the flair for language that has won him praise as a legal writer.

    The path ahead for Neil Gorsuch, Trump’s Supreme Court nominee VIEW GRAPHIC
    “Standing here in a house of history, and acutely aware of my own imperfections, I pledge that if I am confirmed I will do all my powers permit to be a faithful servant of the Constitution and laws of this great country,” said Gorsuch, with his wife Louise at his side.

    Gorsuch pledged to be impartial and independent, and respectful of his place in government.

    “It is the role of judges to apply, not alter, the work of the people’s representatives,” he said. “A judge who likes every outcome he reaches is very likely a bad judge.”

    Gorsuch’s pick won extravagant praise from Republicans and conservatives, something that has been rare in the Trump administration’s combustible start. The president noted that Gorsuch had been confirmed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit 10 years ago without objection.

    “I can only hope that both Democrats and Republicans can come together for once for the good of the country,” Trump said.

    That is unlikely. Democrats and liberals are still furious that the Republican Senate did not allow a vote on former President Barack Obama’s choice for the Scalia seat, Judge Merrick Garland, and vowed to contest Gorsuch.

    An early sign of discontent: Trump invited senior Democratic senators to the White House for a reception to meet his Supreme Court pick, but they declined, according to senior aides.

    The scene as President Trump announced his Supreme Court nominee
    View Photos President Trump chose Neil Gorsuch, a judge seen as similar to the late justice Antonin Scalia, for the Supreme Court.
    A group of legal and civil rights groups blasted the nomination, saying Gorsuch was a tool of conservative activists who would gut protections for consumers, workers, clean air and water, safe food and medicine and roll back the rights of women and LGBT people.

    Gorsuch and Hardiman, 51, emerged from a list of 21 as Trump’s most likely choices. A third person on the shortlist — U.S. Appeals Court Judge William H. Pryor Jr. of Alabama — saw his chances diminish as some Senate Republican leaders have said his confirmation would be difficult.

    Trump considered six and met with four, including a federal district judge from Kentucky, Amul R. Thapar.

    Gorsuch got the word Monday, and the couple went to a neighbor’s house in Boulder, where they were met by a team from the White House Counsel’s Office. They were ferried along a country road to the airport, where they boarded a military jet to Washington.

    [Read speeches and key cases of Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch]

    Gorsuch is seen as a less bombastic version of Scalia and would seem destined to be a solidly conservative vote on the ideologically split court. But friends and supporters describe Gorsuch as being more interested in persuasion than Scalia, who was just as likely to go it alone as to compromise.

    Gorsuch would be the youngest Supreme Court justice since Clarence Thomas was confirmed in 1991. But Gorsuch has been on the bench for a decade, and at his 2006 investiture ceremony, friends joked that his prematurely gray hair was fitting.

    “When Neil came to our firm in 1995 he had gray hair,” said one of his law partners, Mark C. Hansen. “In fact, he was born with silver hair, as well as an inexhaustible store of Winston Churchill quotes.”

    Indeed, Gorsuch came equipped for the ultimate judicial elevation.

    There is a family connection to Republican establishment politics, and service in the administration of George W. Bush. There is a glittery Ivy League résumé — Columbia undergrad, Harvard Law — along with a Marshall scholarship to Oxford. There is a partnership at one of Washington’s top litigation law firms and a string of successful cases.

    There is a Supreme Court clerkship; Gorsuch was hired by Justice Byron White, a fellow Colorado native, who shared him with Justice Anthony M. Kennedy.

    Kennedy stood by that day in Denver to administer the judicial oath, and if Gorsuch is confirmed, Kennedy would become the first justice to sit with a former clerk on the Supreme Court’s mahogany bench.

    But those who know Gorsuch and have studied his decade of solidly conservative opinions on the Court of Appeals say he more resembles the man he would replace — the late Justice Scalia — than the more moderate Kennedy.

    Like Scalia, Gorsuch is a proponent of originalism — meaning that judges should attempt to interpret the words of the Constitution as they were understood at the time they were written — and a textualist who considers only the words of the law being reviewed, not legislators’ intent or the consequences of the decision.

    Critics say that those neutral considerations inevitably lead Gorsuch to conservative outcomes, a criticism that was also leveled at Scalia.

    Gorsuch would like to curb the deference that courts give to federal agencies and is most noted for a strong defense of religious liberty in cases brought by private companies and religious nonprofit groups objecting to the contraceptive mandate in the Affordable Care Act.

    Gorsuch said in a speech last spring that as a judge he had tried to follow Scalia’s path.

    “The great project of Justice Scalia’s career was to remind us of the differences between judges and legislators,” Gorsuch told an audience at Case Western Reserve University School of Law in Cleveland.

    Legislators “may appeal to their own moral convictions and to claims about social utility to reshape the law as they think it should be in the future,” Gorsuch said. But “judges should do none of these things in a democratic society.” Instead, they should use “text, structure and history” to understand what the law is, “not to decide cases based on their own moral convictions or the policy consequences they believe might serve society best.”

    But those who know him say he lacks Scalia’s combustible, combative style.

    “He has very strong opinions, but he just treats people well in every context,” said Melissa Hart, a University of Colorado law professor. She is a Democrat who clerked for former Justice John Paul Stevens and knows Gorsuch because he has taught judicial ethics, legal writing and antitrust law at the school.

    Gorsuch was born in Colorado and lives outside of Boulder with his wife, Louise, whom he met while at Oxford, and two daughters. The nominee is an Episcopalian, and would be the court’s only Protestant. There are five Catholic and three Jewish members.

    But he spent formative years in Washington and graduated from Georgetown Prep. He witnessed firsthand how difficult Washington politics can be. His mother was Anne Gorsuch Burford, a lawyer and conservative Colorado legislator who was picked by President Ronald Reagan as the first woman to head the Environmental Protection Agency. Her tenure was short and rocky: She clashed with environmentalists and was cited for contempt of Congress in 1982 for refusing to turn over subpoenaed agency documents relating to hazardous waste sites. Although she was following the legal advice of the Justice Department, Burford was forced to resign when the administration gave up the fight. She died in 2004.

    After his Supreme Court clerkship, Gorsuch joined the D.C. law firm of Kellogg Huber Hansen Todd Evans & Figel, where he developed a taste for litigation and eventually became a partner. He helped secure what his former partner Hansen said was the largest antitrust award in history and won praise for his courtroom style.

    Gorsuch did a short stint as a high-ranking official in the Justice Department and then was nominated to the appeals court by Bush. He sailed through on a voice vote in the full Senate and took his seat on the Denver-based court in August 2006.

    Gorsuch is popular with current Supreme Court justices, and his clerks regularly are hired for a term on the high court, not just by conservatives but also by liberals such as Kagan and Justice Sonia Sotomayor.

    On the appeals court, Gorsuch has not been called upon to consider two hot-button social issues that may come before the Supreme Court: same-sex marriage and abortion.

    After a federal judge in Utah struck down that state’s prohibition on same-sex marriage, Gorsuch was not a member of the 10th Circuit that upheld the decision.

    “He will have a strong influence on the court because he’s a very persuasive writer,” she said. “That’s a little scary, but it’s not disqualifying.”

    En 2016, sector público incumplió con austeridad: Hacienda
    Informes de la SHCP revelaron que, el gasto público ejercido fue de 579 mil 884.9 millones de pesos; la recaudación de impuestos superó su meta
    31/01/2017 07:02 Jorge Ramos / Archivo

    CIUDAD DE MÉXICO.

    El sector público no cumplió con el programa de austeridad comprometido para 2016, reveló la Secretaría de Hacienda y Crédito Público, a través de los Informes sobre la situación de la economía, de las finanzas públicas y de la deuda pública a diciembre pasado.

    Pese al esfuerzo realizado por algunas dependencias y organismos del gobierno federal para ajustar sus respectivos presupuestos, el gasto neto del sector público se excedió en 579 mil 884.9 millones de pesos, y el programable en 553 mil 666.7 millones de pesos.
    DEUDA PÚBLICA

    El gasto neto incluye el pago de obligaciones financieras ineludibles, entre las que destaca la deuda pública, cuya versión más amplia ascendió a 9 billones 797 mil 439.6 millones de pesos, equivalentes a 50.5 por ciento del Producto Interno Bruto (PIB).

    La apreciación del dólar, le sumó a la deuda pública 1 billón 148.9 mil mdp.

    Cabe mencionar que el nivel observado en la deuda amplia como proporción del PIB fue 2.7 puntos porcentuales mayor que el programado en Criterios Generales de Política Económica, en los que se estimó que el Saldo Histórico de los Requerimientos Financieros alcanzaría 47.8 puntos del PIB al cierre de 2016.

    El crecimiento de la deuda amplia se explica, entre otras cosas, porque sólo la “re expresión” del tipo de cambio, es decir, la apreciación del dólar, le sumó 1 billón 148.9 mil millones de pesos; y la asunción de pasivos pensionarios de Pemex y la CFE otros 295.3 mil millones de pesos.

    Por su parte, el sobre ejercicio en el gasto programable, que es el destinado a financiar la operación y programas de las dependencias y organismos del sector público, se explica porque algunas instituciones se esforzaron para ajustar sus presupuestos, pero otras no, y el balance total dio como resultado un mayor gasto.

    El informe de finanzas públicas revela que los Ramos Autónomos redujeron su gasto en 7 mil 245.3 millones de pesos; pero los Administrativos, que son los del gobierno federal, y en los que se comprometió un recorte de 164 mil millones de pesos, incurrieron en un sobre ejercicio de 379 mil 942.3 millones de pesos; y los Ramos Generales en otro de 134 mil 73 millones de pesos.

    IMPUESTOS

    La indisciplina presupuestaria del sector público, específicamente la del gobierno federal, corrió con cargo a los contribuyentes, quienes pagaron 308 mil 749.6 millones de pesos más impuestos de los programados para el ejercicio fiscal que recién concluyó.

    Los mayores ingresos tributarios se explican por un crecimiento mayor al estimado en la recaudación de los principales impuestos:

    El sistema renta aportó 176 mil 686.4 millones de pesos más de los programado
    El IEPS gasolinero, 67 mil 877.7 millones de pesos
    El IEPS distinto de combustibles, 62 mil 444.2 millones de pesos
    El IVA 49 mil 710.1 millones de pesos.

    En todos los casos, arriba de la meta.

    La Secretaría de Hacienda afirmó que el programa de consolidación fiscal avanzó conforme a lo programado y que las finanzas públicas están en orden. Dijo que El déficit público tradicional se ubicó en 503 mil 682 millones de pesos, 73 mil 511 millones de pesos menos a lo autorizado por el Congreso de la Unión y una reducción de 134 mil 6 millones de pesos con respecto a 2015.

    Pelea Trump por la Riviera Maya
    El presidente de EU alega el no cumplimiento de garantías por la celebración del certamen Miss Universo 2007
    31/01/2017 13:50 Antonio Callejo

    El empresario yucateco, Rodolfo Rosas Moya (centro), participó para traer a México el certamen Miss Universo en 2007.

    CANCÚN.

    Simultáneamente a su campaña electoral, y aún ahora que arrancó su mandato, Donald Trump no pierde el tiempo para sus negocios. Se frota las manos por hacerse de 26 terrenos de alta plusvalía en la Riviera Maya, que pretende despojar a su legítimo propietario, según denuncia Rodolfo Rosas Moya.

    Trump mantiene juicios en México y Estados Unidos. Se cuentan hasta nueve demandas en varios juzgados.

    Durante siete años, los abogados de Trump han mantenido vivo este litigio, pues cuando pierde frente a algún medio de defensa de propietario de las tierras, interpone otro recurso en una estrategia que pareciera de agotamiento.

    Aquí pareciera cuadrar la frase de Trump revelada en su libro El arte del trato: “Si mi adversario es débil, lo aplasto, y si es fuerte, negocio”.

    La Génesis

    La historia se remonta a finales de 2005, cuando un grupo de empresarios de Mérida y la Ciudad de México, acordaron con los gobiernos de Chiapas, Quintana Roo y el de la Ciudad de México realizar en forma conjunta un magno evento con el objetivo de promover de forma mundial a México.

    La idea fue del empresario Pedro Ramírez Sierra, de la Ciudad de México, cuyo Grupo Promotor MU es especialista en la organización y realización de actos masivos. El grupo se puso en contacto con el empresario yucateco, Rodolfo Rosas Moya, conocido en la Península de Yucatán por su participación en obras públicas y privadas, a través de sus empresas constructora e inmobiliaria: Pyrsa Construcciones y Comercializadora Ronac.

    Rosas Moya fue quien realizó el cabildeo del proyecto, convenció al entonces gobernador de Quintana Roo, Félix González Canto, y al de Chiapas, Juan Sabines, cuyas administraciones aportaron un millón de dólares cada uno.

    “Miss Universe, entonces propiedad de Trump, obtuvo ganancias estimadas en más de ocho millones de dólares, derivadas del contrato que celebró exclusivamente con la empresa mexicana Grupo Promotor MU, más la utilidad de los derechos de transmisión”, explicó Rosas Moya.

    Trump, en apariencia, había quedado conforme, al grado de que su hija, Ivanka Trump, asistió en Chetumal al último informe del exgobernador González Canto.

    Posterior al Miss Universo, Trump recibió en su despacho, en Nueva York, a empresarios inmobiliarios de Quintana Roo, pues era conocida su intención de ampliar sus inversiones en el estado.

    La embestida de Trump

    A más de dos años y medio de celebrado el Miss Universo 2007, Rodolfo Rosas Moya recibió una notificación judicial, para enterarle que cinco de sus predios ubicados en la Riviera Maya, que acreditó como parte de las garantías, más otros 21, le fueron embargados en forma cautelar, para responder en lo futuro por una demanda de presuntos daños, por gastos no cubiertos en el certamen de belleza.

    Son esos 26 terrenos de alta plusvalía, en la Riviera Maya, lo que está buscando Trump para ensanchar sus propiedades y su influencia en los negocios turísticos.

    “Estaría reclamando unos 12 millones, que es lo que valen los cinco predios que presentamos en garantía, pero el total de 26 que nos embargaron de forma cautelar, valen más”, sostiene Rosas Moya.

    Trump, ha venido perdiendo juicios y negociaciones de arbitraje de forma recurrente; el punto son las garantías que quiere hacer válidas, dos años después y durante siete años consecutivos que persiste en las demandas.

    Los cinco terrenos se colocaron en un fideicomiso paralelo al contrato de celebración del evento, para complacer a Miss Universe. Sin embargo, el empresario yucateco en ningún momento participó, ni sus empresas, en las firmas de los contratos, se limitó a aportar sus bienes para cerrar el trato.

    “Fue tres años después de realizado el evento con todo éxito y cuando Miss Universo había obtenido las ganancias y regalías derivadas del concurso cuando Trump, con el argumento de que hizo gastos que no fueron cubiertos por la empresa organizadora, y sin haber demostrado una razón jurídica, pretendió hacer efectivas diversas garantías, algunas de estas de Comercializadora Ronac como aval”.

    El tribunal de Nueva York deslindó a Rosas Moya (JAMES ARBITRATION Case No. 1425013328) al considerar que Trump pretendió exigir indebidamente obligaciones al empresario mexicano.

    Trump podría pagar

    Marco Antonio Bautista, director de Comercializadora Ronac, dijo que Donald Trump se vio obligado a proporcionar medios de garantía, de manera que si pierde el caso, tendrá que resarcir los daños morales y económicos propiciados a Rosas Moya.

    En llamada con EPN, presidente israelí lamenta ‘malentendido’
    Reuvén Rivlin pidió a Peña Nieto, dejar atrás la crisis diplomática entre ambos países desatada por el tuit del primer ministro, Benjamín Netanyahu

    Reuvén Rivlin pidió a Peña Nieto, dejar atrás la crisis diplomática entre ambos países desatada por el tuit del primer ministro, Benjamín Netanyahu

    JERUSALÉN.

    El presidente israelí, Reuvén Rivlin, pidió hoy a su colega mexicano, Enrique Peña Nieto, dejar atrás la crisis diplomática entre ambos países desatada el fin de semana por el polémico tuit del primer ministro, Benjamín Netanyahu, disculpándose por lo que calificó de un mero “malentendido”.

    No tenemos ninguna intención de comparar entre la situación de seguridad de Israel y las necesidades que se desprenden de ella, y la situación en la que estén los países amigos de Israel”, aclaró Rivlin a su interlocutor en una llamada telefónica programada de antemano, y de la que se informa en un comunicado oficial.

    Explicó que fueron “las circunstancias de seguridad en Israel y en la región las que llevaron a la importante decisión de construir una verja en la frontera” con Egipto, tratando de distinguir entre la barrera del Sinaí y la que el presidente de EU, Donald Trump, quiere construir con México.

    La conversación se produce después de tres días de crisis diplomática entre ambos países y de que Netanyahu difundiera el sábado un tuit en el que supuestamente apoyaba la decisión de Trump de construir un muro en la frontera con México.

    El presidente Trump está en lo correcto. Yo construí un muro en la frontera sur de Israel. Paró toda la inmigración ilegal. Gran éxito. Gran idea”, escribió el jefe de Gobierno sin matizar a qué se refería exactamente, lo que provocó un fuerte encontronazo diplomático.

    Netanyahu dijo posteriormente que no se refirió en ningún momento al muro entre México y EU, y ha acusado a los medios de comunicación “izquierdistas” de deformar su mensaje.

    Aprovecharé esta oportunidad para explicar o aclarar lo que dije y no dije en mi tuit de la otra noche”, expuso hoy durante la inauguración de la feria Cybertech, uno de los mayores eventos mundiales del sector.

    Aseguró que hablaba del “notable éxito de la valla de seguridad de Israel” sin comentar sobre las relaciones entre EU y México.

    Tuvimos y seguiremos teniendo buenas relaciones” con el país y su presidente, Enrique Peña Nieto, y opinó que los lazos que les unen “son más fuertes que cualquier desencuentro pasajero o malentendido”.

    Un ministro de su Gobierno, Arie Deri, le instó el lunes a disculparse ante México, después de que líderes de la comunidad judía de ese país le pidieran interceder ante Netanyahu.

    Hoy lo ha hecho Rivlin para tratar de poner fin a la crisis y explicarle a Peña Nieto que “nadie trató de comparar entre la situación de Israel y la de México”.

    Se trata de un malentendido. Nuestras relaciones son tan importantes y estrechas que tenemos que dejar atrás cualquier malentendido que se haya producido”, le dijo.

    Rivlin también “lamentó” cualquier “daño” que produjera el malentendido y matizó que estaba seguro de que “podemos dejarlo atrás”.

    El comunicado oficial, redactado en hebreo, indica que Peña Nieto le respondió que el contenido del mensaje “no dejaba margen a la interpretación” y que éste “había generado numerosas reacciones” en México, por lo que “era inevitable nuestra petición de explicaciones” a Israel.

    Quiero destacar que México siempre ha estado y estará interesado en unas estrechas relaciones con Israel. México quiere seguir las buenas relaciones que, lamentablemente, se vieron dañadas por el tuit”, señala la nota presidencial israelí.

    Según el comunicado, en la llamada Rivlin reiteró la invitación que hizo el pasado septiembre a su colega mexicano, durante los funerales de Simón Peres, para que este año realice una visita de Estado de Israel.

    La ciudad de San Francisco demanda a Trump
    El alcalde de San Francisco aseguró que la orden ejecutiva viola la Décima Enmienda de la Constitución, que alega que los poderes no concedidos al gobierno federal recaen en los estados
    31/01/2017 13:49 EFE

    El alcalde de San Francisco, Ed Lee (en la imagen), anunció que la ciudad californiana presentó una demanda contra el presidente Donald Trump por su decisión de retirar los fondos federales a las “ciudades santuario”, que protegían de la deportación a los indocumentados.

    LOS ÁNGELES.

    El alcalde de San Francisco, Ed Lee, anunció que la ciudad californiana presentó una demanda contra el presidente Donald Trump por su decisión de retirar los fondos federales a las “ciudades santuario”, que protegían de la deportación a los indocumentados.

    La semana pasada, Trump firmó una orden ejecutiva por la que se suprimirán los fondos federales a las ciudades que se nieguen a proporcionar información sobre el estatus migratorio de las personas que detienen a las autoridades federales, entre las que se incluyen San Francisco, Los Ángeles, Chicago y Nueva York.

    Durante la campaña electoral, Trump ya prometió que cargaría contra estas urbes y entidades, llamadas “ciudades santuario”, cifradas en unas 300 en todo el país.

    La demanda, la primera respuesta judicial a la medida firmada por Trump, explica que la orden ejecutiva viola la Décima Enmienda de la Constitución de EU, donde se asegura que los poderes no concedidos al gobierno federal deben recaer sobre los propios estados.

    Con su descarada falta de respeto hacia la ley, el presidente de EU buscar coaccionar a las autoridades locales y que así abandonen sus leyes y políticas referidas a las llamadas ‘ciudades santuario”, reza el texto, presentado en la corte federal de San Francisco por el fiscal general Dennis Herrera.

    Trump firmó la citada orden ejecutiva el pasado 25 de enero en una ceremonia celebrada en el Departamento de Seguridad Nacional (DHS), en la que rubricó esa medida junto a otro decreto por el que destina financiación federal para comenzar la construcción de un muro fronterizo con México a fin de frenar el flujo de indocumentados.

    Dos días después, el presidente causó una enorme controversia con otra orden ejecutiva que firmó el viernes como herramienta para luchar contra el terrorismo yihadista.

    El decreto ley suspende el ingreso al país de todos los refugiados durante 120 días, así como la concesión durante 90 días de visados a siete países de mayoría musulmana -Libia, Sudán, Somalia, Siria, Irak, Yemen e Irán- hasta que se establezcan nuevos mecanismos de vigilancia más estrictos.

    El fiscal general del estado de Washington, Bob Ferguson, interpuso este lunes una demanda contra la orden ejecutiva sobre migración y refugiados de Trump, convirtiéndose así en el primer estado en dar ese paso.

    Coca-Cola mostró su apoyo a los latinos en conmovedor comercial
    Aunque el video es de 2015, en los últimos días recuperó importancia para hacer frente a las políticas del presidente Donald Trump respecto a los latinos
    30/01/2017 12:15 Redacción/ Fotos: YouTube

    CIUDAD DE MÉXICO.

    La comunidad latina en Estados Unidos y en todo el mundo atraviesa momentos difíciles, ya que muchas de las políticas migratorias del presidente Donald Trump podrían afectar a miles de familias.

    Desde la orden ejecutiva de construir el muro, mexicanos, latinos y gente de todo el mundo ha mostrado su apoyo a esta comunidad, por lo que un conmovedor comercial de Coca-Cola resurgió en redes sociales como muestra de apoyo.

    ‘¿Qué significa ser latino?’, es la pregunta que conforma todo el video que se lanzó en 2015 como parte de una campaña para latinos en Estados Unidos.

    En el video se celebra la cultura latina y en esta ocasión en específico el apellido, que como menciona el video ‘hay muchas cosas que hacen sentir orgullosos a los latinos, pero hay algo que lo dice todo: el apellido’.

    ‘Hay una herencia y legado que viene con el apellido. Cuando pienso en el, pienso en mi padre’, expresa una persona en el video.

    En el video se muestra ‘The Coca-Cola tatto can’, donde en varias latas de Coca Cola aparecían impresos diferentes apellidos latinos, como Reyes, García Rodríguez, y tenían la posibilidad de imprimirlos en su piel, como tatuajes temporales.

    Detrás de cada apellido hay una historia, no todo viene fácil para nosotros. Ser latino es sentirse orgulloso, trabajar duro, superar los momentos difíciles y mantener la fe, es ser optimista, es ser cariñoso, es amar.

    En su momento Coca-Cola utilizó el hashtag ‘#OrgullosoDeSer (inserte aquí apellido, origen, raza)’ para que la gente mostrara el orgullo y la diversidad que existe alrededor del mundo, así como un sentido de unidad tan necesario en estos días.

    Más de un millón de personas piden cancelar la visita de Trump al Reino Unido

    Repudio ciudadano. Pese a la demanda popular, el gobierno británico dijo que cancelar la visita de Trump al país sería un gesto ‘populista’, que EU es un ‘aliado importante’ y que hay que pensar en el ‘largo plazo’.

    LONDRES.

    La petición en la que se solicita al Gobierno británico que impida que el presidente de Estados Unidos, Donald Trump, haga una visita oficial al Reino Unido este año ha superado el millón de firmas.
    PUBLICIDAD
    inRead invented by Teads

    La solicitud, iniciada por el ciudadano británico Graham Guest, y que tendrá que ser debatida por los diputados, fue colgada el sábado en una web de peticiones al Parlamento a raíz de la controversia causada por Trump al vetar el ingreso en Estados Unidos de ciudadanos de varios países con población musulmana.

    Pese al clamor popular, un portavoz del Gobierno de la primera ministra británica, Theresa May, dijo hoy que la “la invitación ha sido cursada y aceptada” por el nuevo presidente estadunidense y que no se cancelará.

    Fuentes del número 10 de Downing Street, residencia oficial de la primera ministra británica, manifestaron hoy que cancelarla sería un gesto “populista”, que Estados Unidos es un “aliado importante” y que “hay que pensar en el “largo plazo”.

    Mientras, los partidos de la oposición británica pidieron ayer que el Gobierno no reciba al presidente tras conocerse el alcance de la nueva política migratoria.

    Las polémicas medidas acordadas por Trump vetan la entrada en Estados Unidos de ciudadanos con pasaportes de Libia, Sudán, Irak, Somalia, Siria, Yemen e Irán, países con historial terrorista.

    Además, suspenden tanto la entrada de todos los refugiados durante 120 días como la concesión durante 90 días de visados a ciudadanos con pasaportes de los siete países citados.

    En su reunión del viernes en Washington, May invitó a Trump a visitar Londres para ser recibido por la reina Isabel II.

    En esa entrevista, May y Trump abordaron varios asuntos, como la negociación de un acuerdo comercial una vez que el Reino Unido salga de la Unión Europea (UE), previsiblemente en la primavera de 2019.

    El ciudadano británico que inició la petición al Parlamento, Graham Guest, declaró que su finalidad era poner “el foco” en Trump y lamentó que la visita “legitimaría” su presidencia, ya que éste utilizaría “la foto” y el encuentro con la reina Isabel II para reforzarse en el cargo.

    El sábado por la tarde la petición contaba con 60 firmas, pero apenas unas horas después alcanzó las 100 mil, lo que hace que tenga que ser debatida en el Parlamento.

    Para esta tarde hay convocadas manifestaciones de protesta en contra de la orden ejecutiva de Trump en las ciudades británicas de Londres, Manchester, Bristol, Brighton, Liverpool, Glasgow, Edimburgo, Cardiff y Swansea.

    Estado de Washington demanda al gobierno de Trump por decreto migratorio
    El fiscal general del estado, Bob Ferguson, es el primero en desafiar judicialmente la orden ejecutiva; buscará declarar varias cláusulas como anticonstitucionales y aplicar una orden de suspensión
    30/01/2017 13:38 AP / Foto: AP

    “Esta es una medida antiestadunidense, es inapropiada y no prosperará”, advirtió el gobernador de la entidad, Jay Inslee (izq.).

    SEATTLE.

    El estado de Washington demandó al gobierno del presidente Donald Trump por el decreto que prohíbe la entrada al país a ciudadanos de siete países de mayoría musulmana, una decisión que ha desatado protestas en todo Estados Unidos.

    Ferguson es uno de 16 fiscales generales de estados que el domingo emitieron un comunicado calificando el decreto de Trump como ‘antiestadunidense e ilegal’.

    El fiscal general del estado, Bob Ferguson, anunció el lunes la medida judicial, siendo el primer fiscal de un estado en desafiar judicialmente la orden ejecutiva.

    Ferguson dijo que la demanda, contra Trump y sus principales asesores, será presentada el lunes más tarde en un tribunal federal de Seattle.

    Añadió que se buscará declarar varias cláusulas del decreto como anticonstitucionales y aplicar una orden de suspensión contra la implementación de la medida.

    El personal de nuestra oficina estuvo trabajando todo el fin de semana para redactar esta medida judicial”, dijo Ferguson en conferencia de prensa con el gobernador del estado de Washington, Jay Inslee.

    Esta es una medida antiestadunidense, es inapropiada y no prosperará”, dijo Inslee.

    La intención de esta orden ejecutiva es clara: de discriminar contra una religión entre todos los hijos de Dios”, consideró.

    El dinero también se destinará a programas de divulgación, para ‘promover el respeto a los derechos de los mexicanos, precisó el canciller Luis Videgaray
    30/01/2017 14:40 AP

    CIUDAD DE MÉXICO

    El canciller mexicano informó el lunes que su país gastará unos 50 millones de dólares para contratar abogados a fin de defender a sus nacionales que enfrenten deportación en Estados Unidos.

    El dinero también se destinará a programas de divulgación, para “promover el respeto a los derechos de los mexicanos” precisó el secretario de Relaciones Exteriores, Luis Videgaray.

    Vamos a enfocar los recursos a un objetivo fundamental, que es la defensoría de los derechos de los mexicanos. Eso significa asesoría legal, difusión de información, contratación de despachos de abogados donde sea necesario”, afirmó.

    No se trata, quiero dejar claro, de entorpecer la aplicación de la ley en los Estados Unidos, ni mucho menos oponernos a la aplicación de la ley”, agregó.

    Videgaray agregó que México entiende “con claridad que será necesario hacer unas adecuaciones” al Tratado de Libre Comercio de América del Norte (TLCAN) con Estados Unidos y Canadá. Sin embargo, dijo que México no aceptará regresar al sistema de cuotas de importación o a aranceles proteccionistas.

    Estas adecuaciones no pueden consistir en un sesgo proteccionista que implica regresar al pasado de cupos administrados o de los aranceles”, precisó.

    El presidente de Estados Unidos, Donald Trump, ha prometido renegociar el TLCAN y aumentar las deportaciones, posiciones que han causado fricciones importantes con México.

    In Private, Republican Lawmakers Agonize Over Health Law Repeal

    WASHINGTON — Congressional Republicans, meeting behind closed doors this week in Philadelphia, expressed grave concerns about dismantling the Affordable Care Act on the urgent timetable demanded by President Trump, fretting that, among other things, they could wreck insurance markets and be saddled with a politically disastrous “Trumpcare.”

    An audio recording of a session at their annual retreat, obtained by The New York Times, shows Republicans in disarray, far from agreement on health policy, and still searching for something to replace former President Barack Obama’s health care law. While their leaders called for swift action to rescue consumers from the Affordable Care Act, some backbench Republicans worried about potential pitfalls.

    “We had better be sure that we are prepared to live with the market being created,” said Representative Tom McClintock of California, because “that’s going to be called Trumpcare.”

    He added, “Republicans will own it lock, stock and barrel, and we’ll be judged on that.”

    When Democrats were writing the Affordable Care Act seven years ago, their primary goal was to provide health insurance to more people, an ambition that the Obama administration went to great lengths to fulfill as it enrolled millions of people in Medicaid or private health plans.

    Now, as Republicans try to devise a replacement for the law, they have set a nearly impossible standard for themselves: They have promised that none of the 20 million people who gained coverage through the Affordable Care Act will lose it if the law is repealed, even as they lift its mandates and penalties, pull back the tax increases that pay for it and pledge to enact a new program that will be cheaper for taxpayers and consumers.

    In their private session, the recording of which was first reported on by The Washington Post, Republicans revealed that they understood the predicament they had largely created for themselves.

    Keep or Replace Obamacare? It Might Be Up to the States

    How a partial replacement plan compares with the existing law.
    OPEN Graphic

    “I recognize that we can’t keep Obama’s promises,” Representative Tom MacArthur of New Jersey said. “They were wrong to begin with, and the system can’t be sustained.” He worried aloud about the possibility that some people could lose insurance as the law is unwound.

    “We’re telling those people that we’re not going to pull the rug out from under them, and if we do this too fast, we are, in fact, going to pull the rug out from under them,” Mr. MacArthur said. After giving states the choice to expand Medicaid under the law, he said, reversing that expansion too quickly would run the risk of pulling a “bait and switch with the states.”

    The lawmakers’ concerns contrasted with the confidence that Republican leaders and President Trump have expressed as they rush to replace Mr. Obama’s signature domestic achievement, also known as Obamacare. Congress this month approved a budget blueprint that clears the way for quick action to repeal major provisions of the law, and Mr. Trump has said Congress should repeal and replace the law at the same time, putting pressure on lawmakers to agree on an alternative.

    That budget measure created an aspirational deadline to draft repeal legislation by Jan. 27, a day that came and went.

    Privately, Republicans made clear they understand the risks they are running. At their session this week, they voiced concern that their efforts to undo the law could have harmful consequences, such as inadvertently destabilizing insurance markets — a concern shared by Democrats and insurers.

    Under Senate rules, the Senate could vote to repeal major provisions of the Affordable Care Act using fast-track procedures that neutralize the threat of a Democratic filibuster. “We can repeal parts of it,” Mr. McClintock said, “and the parts that remain, I’m concerned, could make the market even more dysfunctional.”

    Republican leaders tried to reassure anxious backbenchers, making the same points in private as they have in public.

    “We don’t own Obamacare,” said Senator John Barrasso of Wyoming, the chairman of the Senate Republican Policy Committee, adding: “We are the rescue party. We campaigned to provide relief and help repair the damage.”

    Republican leaders have predicted that Democrats will come to the table to help draft a replacement once it becomes clear that the health law will be repealed. But some rank-and-file members were not so sure.

    Representative John Katko of New York wondered what Republicans would do “if we can’t get anything out of the Democrats.”

    Another New York Republican, Representative John J. Faso, warned colleagues they were playing with fire if they cut off funds for Planned Parenthood clinics, as Speaker Paul D. Ryan has said Republicans intend to do.

    “Health insurance is going to be tough enough for us to deal with, without allowing millions of people on social media to come to Planned Parenthood’s defense,” Mr. Faso said. He wanted to know from the administration that “we’re not going to have a tweet from the president” saying “we should protect Planned Parenthood.”

    ”We’re making a grave mistake including this Planned Parenthood provision in a health care bill,” he said.

    For many Republicans, coverage and cost are still the most important issues. Estimates of the number of people who will gain or lose coverage will affect the outlook for any proposal to dismantle and replace the 2010 law. If the Congressional Budget Office, the nonpartisan scorekeeper on Capitol Hill, concludes that a significant number of people could lose coverage under a Republican plan, opposition from lawmakers — including Republicans — could jeopardize passage.

    Before Mr. Trump stepped into the debate with his call for “insurance for everybody,” Republicans were choosing their words with utmost caution: Their goal in replacing the health law was to guarantee “universal access,” they said, not necessarily universal coverage.

    “We will give everyone access to affordable health care coverage,” Mr. Ryan said in early December when asked if Republicans had a plan to cover everyone.

    But that discipline has broken down as lawmakers hear from constituents terrified of losing insurance and as Mr. Trump weighs in.

    “No one who has coverage because of Obamacare today will lose that coverage,” Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers of Washington, the chairwoman of the House Republican Conference, said on Jan. 10.
    Got a confidential news tip?

    The New York Times would like to hear from readers who want to share messages and materials with our journalists.

    A spokeswoman for Ms. McMorris Rodgers later tried to clarify what she had said. The congresswoman “didn’t deliver her remarks exactly as prepared,” the spokeswoman said. In the prepared remarks, Ms. McMorris Rodgers included an important qualification: “No one who has coverage because of Obamacare today will lose that coverage the day it’s repealed” — in the transition to a new market-oriented health care system.

    But Senator John Cornyn of Texas, the No. 2 Senate Republican, has made a sweeping commitment just like the one by Ms. McMorris Rodgers. After meeting with governors on Jan. 19, Mr. Cornyn was asked about concerns that people who benefited from the expansion of Medicaid might lose that coverage with a repeal.

    “We’re all concerned, but it ain’t going to happen,” Mr. Cornyn said. He amplified the point, adding: “Nobody’s going to lose coverage. Obviously, people covered today will continue to be covered. And the hope is we’ll expand access. Right now 30 million people are not covered under Obamacare.”

    A spokesman for Mr. Cornyn said he “meant no one will lose access to coverage.”

    Chris Jacobs, a health policy analyst who used to work for Republicans in Congress, said Republicans and Mr. Trump were at risk of overpromising, just as Mr. Obama did.

    “Conservatives should not remain fixated on the number of people with health insurance when designing an Obamacare alternative,” Mr. Jacobs said. “We will never win the battle with liberals if you measure success in terms of how many people have health insurance cards. We don’t want to spend as much as liberals, and we don’t believe in coercing people to buy insurance.”

    Democrats remember how Republicans hounded Mr. Obama for breaking his promise that “if you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan.” Democrats say they will hold congressional Republicans and the Trump administration accountable in the same way.

    Increasing the number of people with insurance was a lodestar for the Obama administration. It spent tens of millions of dollars advertising the benefits of the law. It extended deadlines to give people more time to sign up. It allowed many people to sign up outside the regular annual enrollment period and played down the significance of big premium increases, saying consumers could get subsidies to defray the costs.

    Republicans say they can get the same results for less money and without a statutory mandate that most Americans have insurance. But without that requirement, budget analysts say, it will be difficult for Republicans to achieve coverage gains as large as those achieved under the Affordable Care Act.

    “It’s easier for the Congressional Budget Office to estimate significant coverage effects if there is a federal requirement” for people to have insurance, said Douglas W. Elmendorf, who was the budget office director from 2009 to 2015. “It would be very hard to maintain the levels of insurance coverage we have now without the penalties and subsidies.”

    Robert Pear reported from Washington, and Thomas Kaplan from Philadelphia.

    WASHINGTON — Congressional Republicans, meeting behind closed doors this week in Philadelphia, expressed grave concerns about dismantling the Affordable Care Act on the urgent timetable demanded by President Trump, fretting that, among other things, they could wreck insurance markets and be saddled with a politically disastrous “Trumpcare.”

    An audio recording of a session at their annual retreat, obtained by The New York Times, shows Republicans in disarray, far from agreement on health policy, and still searching for something to replace former President Barack Obama’s health care law. While their leaders called for swift action to rescue consumers from the Affordable Care Act, some backbench Republicans worried about potential pitfalls.

    “We had better be sure that we are prepared to live with the market being created,” said Representative Tom McClintock of California, because “that’s going to be called Trumpcare.”

    He added, “Republicans will own it lock, stock and barrel, and we’ll be judged on that.”

    When Democrats were writing the Affordable Care Act seven years ago, their primary goal was to provide health insurance to more people, an ambition that the Obama administration went to great lengths to fulfill as it enrolled millions of people in Medicaid or private health plans.

    Now, as Republicans try to devise a replacement for the law, they have set a nearly impossible standard for themselves: They have promised that none of the 20 million people who gained coverage through the Affordable Care Act will lose it if the law is repealed, even as they lift its mandates and penalties, pull back the tax increases that pay for it and pledge to enact a new program that will be cheaper for taxpayers and consumers.

    In their private session, the recording of which was first reported on by The Washington Post, Republicans revealed that they understood the predicament they had largely created for themselves.

    Keep or Replace Obamacare? It Might Be Up to the States

    How a partial replacement plan compares with the existing law.

    “I recognize that we can’t keep Obama’s promises,” Representative Tom MacArthur of New Jersey said. “They were wrong to begin with, and the system can’t be sustained.” He worried aloud about the possibility that some people could lose insurance as the law is unwound.

    “We’re telling those people that we’re not going to pull the rug out from under them, and if we do this too fast, we are, in fact, going to pull the rug out from under them,” Mr. MacArthur said. After giving states the choice to expand Medicaid under the law, he said, reversing that expansion too quickly would run the risk of pulling a “bait and switch with the states.”

    The lawmakers’ concerns contrasted with the confidence that Republican leaders and President Trump have expressed as they rush to replace Mr. Obama’s signature domestic achievement, also known as Obamacare. Congress this month approved a budget blueprint that clears the way for quick action to repeal major provisions of the law, and Mr. Trump has said Congress should repeal and replace the law at the same time, putting pressure on lawmakers to agree on an alternative.

    That budget measure created an aspirational deadline to draft repeal legislation by Jan. 27, a day that came and went.

    Privately, Republicans made clear they understand the risks they are running. At their session this week, they voiced concern that their efforts to undo the law could have harmful consequences, such as inadvertently destabilizing insurance markets — a concern shared by Democrats and insurers.

    Under Senate rules, the Senate could vote to repeal major provisions of the Affordable Care Act using fast-track procedures that neutralize the threat of a Democratic filibuster. “We can repeal parts of it,” Mr. McClintock said, “and the parts that remain, I’m concerned, could make the market even more dysfunctional.”

    Republican leaders tried to reassure anxious backbenchers, making the same points in private as they have in public.

    “We don’t own Obamacare,” said Senator John Barrasso of Wyoming, the chairman of the Senate Republican Policy Committee, adding: “We are the rescue party. We campaigned to provide relief and help repair the damage.”

    Republican leaders have predicted that Democrats will come to the table to help draft a replacement once it becomes clear that the health law will be repealed. But some rank-and-file members were not so sure.

    Representative John Katko of New York wondered what Republicans would do “if we can’t get anything out of the Democrats.”

    Another New York Republican, Representative John J. Faso, warned colleagues they were playing with fire if they cut off funds for Planned Parenthood clinics, as Speaker Paul D. Ryan has said Republicans intend to do.

    “Health insurance is going to be tough enough for us to deal with, without allowing millions of people on social media to come to Planned Parenthood’s defense,” Mr. Faso said. He wanted to know from the administration that “we’re not going to have a tweet from the president” saying “we should protect Planned Parenthood.”

    ”We’re making a grave mistake including this Planned Parenthood provision in a health care bill,” he said.

    For many Republicans, coverage and cost are still the most important issues. Estimates of the number of people who will gain or lose coverage will affect the outlook for any proposal to dismantle and replace the 2010 law. If the Congressional Budget Office, the nonpartisan scorekeeper on Capitol Hill, concludes that a significant number of people could lose coverage under a Republican plan, opposition from lawmakers — including Republicans — could jeopardize passage.

    Before Mr. Trump stepped into the debate with his call for “insurance for everybody,” Republicans were choosing their words with utmost caution: Their goal in replacing the health law was to guarantee “universal access,” they said, not necessarily universal coverage.

    “We will give everyone access to affordable health care coverage,” Mr. Ryan said in early December when asked if Republicans had a plan to cover everyone.

    But that discipline has broken down as lawmakers hear from constituents terrified of losing insurance and as Mr. Trump weighs in.

    “No one who has coverage because of Obamacare today will lose that coverage,” Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers of Washington, the chairwoman of the House Republican Conference, said on Jan. 10.

    The New York Times would like to hear from readers who want to share messages and materials with our journalists.

    A spokeswoman for Ms. McMorris Rodgers later tried to clarify what she had said. The congresswoman “didn’t deliver her remarks exactly as prepared,” the spokeswoman said. In the prepared remarks, Ms. McMorris Rodgers included an important qualification: “No one who has coverage because of Obamacare today will lose that coverage the day it’s repealed” — in the transition to a new market-oriented health care system.

    But Senator John Cornyn of Texas, the No. 2 Senate Republican, has made a sweeping commitment just like the one by Ms. McMorris Rodgers. After meeting with governors on Jan. 19, Mr. Cornyn was asked about concerns that people who benefited from the expansion of Medicaid might lose that coverage with a repeal.

    “We’re all concerned, but it ain’t going to happen,” Mr. Cornyn said. He amplified the point, adding: “Nobody’s going to lose coverage. Obviously, people covered today will continue to be covered. And the hope is we’ll expand access. Right now 30 million people are not covered under Obamacare.”

    A spokesman for Mr. Cornyn said he “meant no one will lose access to coverage.”

    Chris Jacobs, a health policy analyst who used to work for Republicans in Congress, said Republicans and Mr. Trump were at risk of overpromising, just as Mr. Obama did.

    “Conservatives should not remain fixated on the number of people with health insurance when designing an Obamacare alternative,” Mr. Jacobs said. “We will never win the battle with liberals if you measure success in terms of how many people have health insurance cards. We don’t want to spend as much as liberals, and we don’t believe in coercing people to buy insurance.”

    Democrats remember how Republicans hounded Mr. Obama for breaking his promise that “if you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan.” Democrats say they will hold congressional Republicans and the Trump administration accountable in the same way.

    Increasing the number of people with insurance was a lodestar for the Obama administration. It spent tens of millions of dollars advertising the benefits of the law. It extended deadlines to give people more time to sign up. It allowed many people to sign up outside the regular annual enrollment period and played down the significance of big premium increases, saying consumers could get subsidies to defray the costs.

    Republicans say they can get the same results for less money and without a statutory mandate that most Americans have insurance. But without that requirement, budget analysts say, it will be difficult for Republicans to achieve coverage gains as large as those achieved under the Affordable Care Act.

    “It’s easier for the Congressional Budget Office to estimate significant coverage effects if there is a federal requirement” for people to have insurance, said Douglas W. Elmendorf, who was the budget office director from 2009 to 2015. “It would be very hard to maintain the levels of insurance coverage we have now without the penalties and subsidies.”

    Robert Pear reported from Washington, and Thomas Kaplan from Philadelphia.

    Making the Rust Belt Rustier

    Donald Trump will break most of his campaign promises. Which promises will he keep?

    The answer, I suspect, has more to do with psychology than it does with strategy. Mr. Trump is much more enthusiastic about punishing people than he is about helping them. He may have promised not to cut Social Security and Medicare, or take health insurance away from the tens of millions who gained coverage under Obamacare, but in practice he seems perfectly willing to satisfy his party by destroying the safety net.

    On the other hand, he appears serious about his eagerness to reverse America’s 80-year-long commitment to expanding world trade. On Thursday the White House said it was considering a 20 percent tariff on all imports from Mexico; doing so wouldn’t just pull the U.S. out of NAFTA, it would violate all our trading agreements.

    Why does he want this? Because he sees international trade the way he sees everything else: as a struggle for dominance, in which you only win at somebody else’s expense.

    His Inaugural Address made that perfectly clear: “For many decades we’ve enriched foreign industry at the expense of American industry.” And he sees punitive tariffs as a way to stop foreigners from selling us stuff, and thereby revive the “rusted-out factories scattered like tombstones across the landscape.”

    Unfortunately, as just about any economist could tell him — but probably not within his three-minute attention span — it doesn’t work that way. Even if tariffs lead to a partial reversal of the long decline in manufacturing employment, they won’t add jobs on net, just shift employment around. And they probably won’t even do that: Taken together, the new regime’s policies will probably lead to a faster, not slower, decline in American manufacturing.

    How do we know this? We can look at the underlying economic logic, and we can also look at what happened during the Reagan years, which in some ways represent a dress rehearsal for what’s coming.

    Now, I’m talking about the reality of Reagan, not the Republicans’ legend, which assigns all blame for the early-1980s recession to Jimmy Carter and all credit for the subsequent recovery to the sainted Ronald. In fact, that whole cycle had almost nothing to do with Reagan policies.

    What Reagan did do, however, was blow up the budget deficit with military spending and tax cuts. This drove up interest rates, which drew in foreign capital. The inflow of capital, in turn, led to a stronger dollar, which made U.S. manufacturing uncompetitive. The trade deficit soared — and the long-term decline in the share of manufacturing in overall employment accelerated sharply.

    Notably, it was under Reagan that talk of “deindustrialization” and the use of the term “Rust Belt” first became widespread.

    It’s also worth pointing out that the Reagan-era manufacturing decline took place despite a significant amount of protectionism, especially a quota on Japanese car exports to America that ended up costing consumers more than $30 billion in today’s prices.

    Will we repeat this story? The Trump regime will clearly blow up the deficit, mainly through tax cuts for the rich. (Funny, isn’t it, how all the deficit scolds have gone quiet?) True, this may not boost spending very much, since the rich will save much of their windfall while the poor and the middle class will face harsh benefits cuts. Still, interest rates have already risen in anticipation of the borrowing surge, and so has the dollar. So we do seem to be following the Reagan playbook for shrinking manufacturing.

    It’s true that Mr. Trump appears ready to practice a much more extreme form of protectionism than Reagan, who avoided outright violations of existing trade deals. This could help some manufacturing industries. But it will also drive the dollar higher, hurting others.

    And there’s a further factor to consider: The world economy has gotten a lot more complex over the past three decades. These days, hardly anything is simply “made in America,” or for that matter “made in China”: Manufacturing is a global enterprise, in which cars, planes and so on are assembled from components produced in multiple countries.

    What will happen to this enterprise if the United States takes a meat ax to the agreements that govern international trade? There will, inevitably, be huge dislocation: Some U.S. factories and communities will benefit, but others will be hurt, bigly, by the loss of markets, crucial components or both.

    Economists talk about the “China shock,” the disruption of some communities by surging Chinese exports in the 2000s. Well, the coming Trump shock will be at least as disruptive.

    And the biggest losers, as with health care, will be white working-class voters who were foolish enough to believe that Donald Trump was on their side.

    The appointment of Stephen K. Bannon as chief White House strategist for President-elect Donald J. Trump has been condemned by civil rights groups, Democrats and some Republicans, because of Mr. Bannon’s record as chairman of Breitbart News, the hard-right news and opinion site.

    Here, in his own words, are a selection of Mr. Bannon’s public statements about the country, the Republican Party and his own political philosophy.

    ‘Anger Is a Good Thing’

    • “Fear is a good thing. Fear is going to lead you to take action,” he said in a 2010 interview.

    • Referring to Ann Coulter, Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin in a 2011 radio interview on Political Vindication Radio, he said: “These women cut to the heart of the progressive narrative. That’s why there are some unintended consequences of the women’s liberation movement. That, in fact, the women that would lead this country would be pro-family, they would have husbands, they would love their children. They wouldn’t be a bunch of dykes that came from the Seven Sisters schools up in New England. That drives the left insane, and that’s why they hate these women.”

    • Mr. Bannon made a movie in 2012 about the Occupy Wall Street protests. He told an interviewer: “After making the Occupy movie, when you finish watching the film, you want to take a hot shower. You want to go home and shower because you’ve just spent an hour and 15 minutes with the greasiest, dirtiest people you will ever see.”

And if you’re fighting to save this country, if you’re fighting to take this country back, it’s not going to be sunshine and patriots. It’s going to be people who want to fight.”

    ‘Virulently Anti-Establishment’

    • “I’m a Leninist,” Mr. Bannon was quoted as saying by a writer for The Daily Beast who met him at a party in 2014. He later said he did not recall the conversation. “Lenin wanted to destroy the state, and that’s my goal, too,” the site quoted him as saying. “I want to bring everything crashing down, and destroy all of today’s establishment.”

    • “What we need to do is bitch-slap the Republican Party,” he said in a 2010 radio interview on Political Vindication Radio.

    • “We don’t believe there is a functional conservative party in this country, and we certainly don’t think the Republican Party is that,” he told the same gathering. “It’s going to be an insurgent, center-right populist movement that is virulently anti-establishment, and it’s going to continue to hammer this city, both the progressive left and the institutional Republican Party.”

    • “There is a growing global anti-establishment revolt against the permanent political class at home, and the global elites that influence them, which impacts everyone from Lubbock, Tex., to London, England,” he said in a 2014 interview in The New York Times.

    •“Let the grassroots turn on the hate because that’s the ONLY thing that will make them do their duty,” he wrote about Republican leaders in a 2014 email exchange with a Breitbart News editor. The emails were obtained by The Daily Beast.

    • “We call ourselves ‘the Fight Club.’ You don’t come to us for warm and fuzzy,” Mr. Bannon told The Washington Post this year. “We think of ourselves as virulently anti-establishment, particularly ‘anti-’ the permanent political class. We say Paul Ryan was grown in a petri dish at the Heritage Foundation.”

    At the Helm of Breitbart News

    Mr. Bannon took over Breitbart News in 2012 after the death of its founder, Andrew Breitbart, and shifted it further to the right. Critics, including some conservatives formerly associated with it, have denounced Breitbart in its current incarnation as a hate site steeped in misogyny, homophobia, transphobia, white nationalism and anti-Semitism. Here is a sampling of some articles published during Mr. Bannon’s tenure that drew criticism:

    • “Birth Control Makes Women Unattractive and Crazy” A December 2015 article by Milo Yiannopoulos, who was later barred from Twitter when he was accused of inciting racist and sexist attacks on the actress Leslie Jones, told women that birth control “makes you fat,” “makes your voice unsexy,” “makes you jiggle wrong,” “makes you a slut” and “makes you unsexy all the time.”

    • “Bill Kristol: Republican Spoiler, Renegade Jew” A May 2016 article by David Horowitz criticized Bill Kristol for his opposition to Mr. Trump as “a political miscalculation so great and a betrayal so profound as to not be easily forgiven.”

    • “World Health Organization Report: Trannies 49 Xs Higher HIV Rate” A December 2015 article by Austin Ruse, using a slur for transgender people in the headline, argued that a public health study on sexual health in the transgender community was actually a warning about “how dangerous it is to become ‘transgender.’” The site called it a rebuke to “the ‘transgender’ narrative that is sweeping American culture.”

    • “Roger Stone: Huma Abedin ‘Most Likely a Saudi Spy’ With ‘Deep, Inarguable Connections’ to ‘Global Terrorist Entity’” A June 2016 article by Dan Riehl chronicled the belief of Mr. Stone, a Trump adviser, that Ms. Abedin, an aide to Hillary Clinton, was connected to a terrorist conspiracy.

    • “There’s No Hiring Bias Against Women in Tech, They Just Suck at Interviews” A July 2016 article by Mr. Yiannopoulos argued that it was women’s fault that tech firms hired so few of them.

    • “Lesbian Bridezillas Bully Bridal Shop Owner Over Religious Beliefs” An August 2014 article by Susan Berry criticized a lesbian couple who complained on Facebook about a Pennsylvania bridal shop that refused to sell them wedding dresses.

    • “The Solution to Online ‘Harassment’ Is Simple: Women Should Log Off” A July 2016 article by Mr. Yiannopoulos argued that women were “screwing up the internet for men by invading every space we have online and ruining it with attention-seeking and a needy, demanding, touchy-feely form of modern feminism.”

    Mister Trump… mi Donald… mi Angry Cheeto… my friend…

    Sé que hoy tuviste una reunión con automotrices de tu país. Sé que te molesta que haya autos que se produzcan en México para que luego sean comprados por tus ciudadanos, los que hoy (dices) representas. Si por ti fuera, dices que te llevarías toda la producción de México para ahora ser producidos en tu país.

    No tienes ni idea de lo que estás diciendo. Yo te diré por qué, con números redondos, bien fundamentados:

    * Se estima que en 2018 México producirá 4 millones de autos. De estos, aproximadamente el 65% se irá para EEUU. Esos son 2.6 millones de autos.

    * Para que se construya la capacidad de producir 2.6 millones de autos al año en EEUU, necesitarás aproximadamente 7 plantas. Si a cada una le estimamos una inversión promedio de 1.5 billlones (así como tú dices, para que me entiendas) por cada una, esto me da que necesitan entonces más de 10,000,000,000 USD. (Diez mil millones de dólares… diez billones… así como tú dices).

    * Adicionalmente, pues la mano de obra te saldrá más cara. De acuerdo a costos actuales en plantas de México contra las de EEUU, casi seis veces más caras. Hago matemáticas (de las buenas, no como cuando tú cuentas la gente que te fue a ver) y si cada planta tendrá poco más de 2,000 empleados directos, el costo anual que se tendrá que pagar entonces en las 7 plantas que se construirán es de poco más de 200,000,000 (Doscientos millones USD).

    * Estos poco más de 200 millones elevarán el costo de cada auto en casi 600 USD. La inversión adicional hecha, asumiendo que será para un proyecto de 6 años, aumentará costo de cada auto otros 750 USD. A un margen de 8% estimado, el precio de cada auto subirá 1,500 USD.

    * El Ford Focus más barato que se vende en EEUU empieza en 16,775 USD. Tendrás que subir su precio 9%, hasta 18,300 USD. El Toyota Corolla y el Honda Civic que se producen ya en EEUU justamente empiezan en ese precio. Pregunto entonces: ¿Dónde estará la ventaja competitiva de Ford para competir contra los japoneses? ¡Si a ese menor precio venden hasta 100,000 unidades menos que los japoneses mencionados!

    Ni siquiera estoy hablando aquí de tiempo. Te aseguro que tu idea, eventualmente, tronará. For suuuuree….! (Así como tú dices).

    Ahora… si tú (bueno… tu país) absorberá ese costo sin problema, estamos hablando de que necesitas, en seis años, un total de 20,000,000,000 (Veinte mil millones de dólares… veinte billones… así como tú dices). Eso es más que el presupuesto anual de la NASA, casi el doble de tu presupuesto anual para instituciones de comida y agricultura, apenas un 30% menos de tu presupuesto de Ciencia y Tecnología, y así puedo seguir. Numbers are huuuuge, believe me, they are!

    Déjate de estupideces. Deja que el mercado trabaje como debe hacerlo. No eres Superman… podrías tal vez ser… Estúpido man… Orange man… pero nada más… ok?

    Cualquier cosa me hablas… aquí andamos, man..!

    El mejor muro es generar oportunidades de empleo en México: Slim
    El empresario afirmó que México está listo para negociar con Donald Trump porque todos los partidos están apoyado al presidente Enrique Peña Nieto

    El empresario afirmó que México está listo para negociar con Donald Trump porque todos los partidos están apoyado al presidente Enrique Peña Nieto

    CIUDAD DE MÉXICO.

    El empresario mexicano Carlos Slim dijo que México está listo para negociar con Donald Trump porque todos los partidos políticos están apoyado al presidente Enrique Peña Nieto en sus conversaciones con el líder estadunidense

    Carlos Slim afirmó hoy que el mejor muro fronterizo es “generar oportunidades de empleo” y cuestionó al mandatario Donald Trump, por plantear “utopías regresivas” con sus políticas proteccionistas.

    Esta unidad nacional va a permitir al Gobierno tener una posición de fuerza y con determinación hacer las negociaciones que más convengan a los intereses nacionales”, agregó.

    En rueda de prensa, Slim dijo que México tiene que negociar desde una posición de fuerza, señalando que Trump, a quien llamó un “gran negociador”, representa un cambio importante en la manera de hacer política.

    Advirtió que la negociación será “ardua y difícil” con Trump, que “no tiene tiempo a ser políticamente cuidadoso”, por lo que habrá que anteponer la patria a los partidos y defender los intereses de México con “determinación y dignidad”.

    Asimismo, afirmó que la situación y circunstancias de Estados Unidos son muy favorables para México. El empresario detalló que, aunque el presidente Donald Trump quiere cambiar la forma de gobernar y hacer política, también “representa un retroceso”.

    Por esto México tiene varias condiciones “favorables” en la negociación, que consideró que “está más de nuestro lado que de los otros lados”, y debe tratar temas como el Tratado de Libre Comercio de América del Norte (TLCAN) o de la construcción de un muro fronterizo.

    Pensar en regresar al pasado glorioso de la industria americana no funciona, van de regreso al pasado”, sostuvo.

    El cuarto hombre más rico del planeta en 2016 según la revista Forbes aseguró que “México es el mejor socio de Estados Unidos y el más complementario” y acusó a Trump de “hiperactividad”.

    Ojalá que dentro de esta hiperactividad del presidente, encuentre que estos paradigmas -como la sociedad de la información, la tecnología o la globalización- son importantes”, agregó.

    Peña Nieto y Trump mantuvieron hoy una conversación telefónica en la que acordaron resolver sus “claras y muy públicas” diferencias sobre el pago del muro fronterizo como parte de una discusión integral de todos los aspectos de la relación bilateral, y “ya no hablar públicamente” sobre ello, informó la Presidencia mexicana.

    Privacy Policy
    The Apple Privacy Policy was updated on September 12, 2016.

    Your privacy is important to Apple. So we’ve developed a Privacy Policy that covers how we collect, use, disclose, transfer, and store your information. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with our privacy practices and let us know if you have any questions.

    Your California Privacy Disclosures Information Regarding Commercial Electronic Messages in Canada
    Collection and Use of Personal Information

    Personal information is data that can be used to identify or contact a single person.

    You may be asked to provide your personal information anytime you are in contact with Apple or an Apple affiliated company. Apple and its affiliates may share this personal information with each other and use it consistent with this Privacy Policy. They may also combine it with other information to provide and improve our products, services, content, and advertising. You are not required to provide the personal information that we have requested, but, if you chose not to do so, in many cases we will not be able to provide you with our products or services or respond to any queries you may have.

    Here are some examples of the types of personal information Apple may collect and how we may use it:
    What personal information we collect

    When you create an Apple ID, apply for commercial credit, purchase a product, download a software update, register for a class at an Apple Retail Store, contact us or participate in an online survey, we may collect a variety of information, including your name, mailing address, phone number, email address, contact preferences, and credit card information.
    When you share your content with family and friends using Apple products, send gift certificates and products, or invite others to participate in Apple services or forums, Apple may collect the information you provide about those people such as name, mailing address, email address, and phone number. Apple will use such information to fulfill your requests, provide the relevant product or service, or for anti-fraud purposes.
    In certain jurisdictions, we may ask for a government issued ID in limited circumstances including when setting up a wireless account and activating your device, for the purpose of extending commercial credit, managing reservations, or as required by law.

    How we use your personal information

    The personal information we collect allows us to keep you posted on Apple’s latest product announcements, software updates, and upcoming events. If you don’t want to be on our mailing list, you can opt out anytime by updating your preferences.
    We also use personal information to help us create, develop, operate, deliver, and improve our products, services, content and advertising, and for loss prevention and anti-fraud purposes.
    We may use your personal information, including date of birth, to verify identity, assist with identification of users, and to determine appropriate services. For example, we may use date of birth to determine the age of Apple ID account holders.
    From time to time, we may use your personal information to send important notices, such as communications about purchases and changes to our terms, conditions, and policies. Because this information is important to your interaction with Apple, you may not opt out of receiving these communications.
    We may also use personal information for internal purposes such as auditing, data analysis, and research to improve Apple’s products, services, and customer communications.
    If you enter into a sweepstake, contest, or similar promotion we may use the information you provide to administer those programs.

    Collection and Use of Non-Personal Information

    We also collect data in a form that does not, on its own, permit direct association with any specific individual. We may collect, use, transfer, and disclose non-personal information for any purpose. The following are some examples of non-personal information that we collect and how we may use it:

    We may collect information such as occupation, language, zip code, area code, unique device identifier, referrer URL, location, and the time zone where an Apple product is used so that we can better understand customer behavior and improve our products, services, and advertising.
    We may collect information regarding customer activities on our website, iCloud services, our iTunes Store, App Store, MAC App Store, App Store for Apple TV and iBooks Stores and from our other products and services. This information is aggregated and used to help us provide more useful information to our customers and to understand which parts of our website, products, and services are of most interest. Aggregated data is considered non‑personal information for the purposes of this Privacy Policy.
    We may collect and store details of how you use our services, including search queries. This information may be used to improve the relevancy of results provided by our services. Except in limited instances to ensure quality of our services over the Internet, such information will not be associated with your IP address.
    With your explicit consent, we may collect data about how you use your device and applications in order to help app developers improve their apps.

    If we do combine non-personal information with personal information the combined information will be treated as personal information for as long as it remains combined.
    Cookies and Other Technologies

    Apple’s websites, online services, interactive applications, email messages, and advertisements may use “cookies” and other technologies such as pixel tags and web beacons. These technologies help us better understand user behavior, tell us which parts of our websites people have visited, and facilitate and measure the effectiveness of advertisements and web searches. We treat information collected by cookies and other technologies as non‑personal information. However, to the extent that Internet Protocol (IP) addresses or similar identifiers are considered personal information by local law, we also treat these identifiers as personal information. Similarly, to the extent that non-personal information is combined with personal information, we treat the combined information as personal information for the purposes of this Privacy Policy.

    Ads that are delivered by Apple’s advertising platform may appear in Apple News and in the App Store. If you do not wish to receive ads targeted to your interests from Apple’s advertising platform, you can choose to enable Limit Ad Tracking, which will opt your Apple ID out of receiving such ads regardless of what device you are using. If you enable Limit Ad Tracking on your mobile device, third-party apps cannot use the Advertising Identifier, a non-personal device identifier, to serve you targeted ads. You may still see ads in the App Store or News based on context like your search query or the channel you are reading. In third-party apps, you may see ads based on other information.

    Apple and our partners also use cookies and other technologies to remember personal information when you use our website, online services, and applications. Our goal in these cases is to make your experience with Apple more convenient and personal. For example, knowing your first name lets us welcome you the next time you visit the Apple Online Store. Knowing your country and language − and if you are an educator, your school − helps us provide a customized and more useful shopping experience. Knowing someone using your computer or device has shopped for a certain product or used a particular service helps us make our advertising and email communications more relevant to your interests. And knowing your contact information, hardware identifiers, and information about your computer or device helps us personalize your operating system, set up your iCloud service, and provide you with better customer service.

    If you want to disable cookies and you’re using the Safari web browser, go to Safari preferences and then to the privacy pane to manage your preferences. On your Apple mobile device, go to Settings, then Safari, scroll down to the Privacy & Security section, and tap on “Block Cookies” to manage your preferences. For other browsers, check with your provider to find out how to disable cookies. Please note that certain features of the Apple website will not be available once cookies are disabled.

    As is true of most internet services, we gather some information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type and language, Internet service provider (ISP), referring and exit websites and applications, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.

    We use this information to understand and analyze trends, to administer the site, to learn about user behavior on the site, to improve our product and services, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. Apple may use this information in our marketing and advertising services.

    In some of our email messages, we use a “click-through URL” linked to content on the Apple website. When customers click one of these URLs, they pass through a separate web server before arriving at the destination page on our website. We track this click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked in this way, you should not click text or graphic links in the email messages.

    Pixel tags enable us to send email messages in a format customers can read, and they tell us whether mail has been opened. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to customers.
    Disclosure to Third Parties

    At times Apple may make certain personal information available to strategic partners that work with Apple to provide products and services, or that help Apple market to customers. For example, when you purchase and activate your iPhone, you authorize Apple and your carrier to exchange the information you provide during the activation process to carry out service. If you are approved for service, your account will be governed by Apple and your carrier’s respective privacy policies. Personal information will only be shared by Apple to provide or improve our products, services and advertising; it will not be shared with third parties for their marketing purposes.
    Service Providers

    Apple shares personal information with companies who provide services such as information processing, extending credit, fulfilling customer orders, delivering products to you, managing and enhancing customer data, providing customer service, assessing your interest in our products and services, and conducting customer research or satisfaction surveys. These companies are obligated to protect your information and may be located wherever Apple operates.
    Others

    It may be necessary − by law, legal process, litigation, and/or requests from public and governmental authorities within or outside your country of residence − for Apple to disclose your personal information. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that for purposes of national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary or appropriate.

    We may also disclose information about you if we determine that disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce our terms and conditions or protect our operations or users. Additionally, in the event of a reorganization, merger, or sale we may transfer any and all personal information we collect to the relevant third party.
    Protection of Personal Information

    Apple takes the security of your personal information very seriously. Apple online services such as the Apple Online Store and iTunes Store protect your personal information during transit using encryption such as Transport Layer Security (TLS). When your personal data is stored by Apple, we use computer systems with limited access housed in facilities using physical security measures. iCloud data is stored in encrypted form including when we utilize third-party storage.

    When you use some Apple products, services, or applications or post on an Apple forum, chat room, or social networking service, the personal information and content you share is visible to other users and can be read, collected, or used by them. You are responsible for the personal information you choose to share or submit in these instances. For example, if you list your name and email address in a forum posting, that information is public. Please take care when using these features.

    If you or anyone else using Family Sharing logs on to a device that is owned by a third party, any information shared within your Family—including calendar, location, photos, and iTunes purchases—may be downloaded on to that third-party device thereby disclosing any such shared information. [See About Family Sharing for more information.]
    Integrity and Retention of Personal Information

    Apple makes it easy for you to keep your personal information accurate, complete, and up to date. We will retain your personal information for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law.
    Access to Personal Information

    You can help ensure that your contact information and preferences are accurate, complete, and up to date by logging in to your account at https://appleid.apple.com/. For other personal information we hold, we will provide you with access for any purpose including to request that we correct the data if it is inaccurate or delete the data if Apple is not required to retain it by law or for legitimate business purposes. We may decline to process requests that are frivolous/vexatious, jeopardize the privacy of others, are extremely impractical, or for which access is not otherwise required by local law. Access, correction, or deletion requests can be made through the regional Privacy Contact Form.
    Children & Education

    We understand the importance of taking extra precautions to protect the privacy and safety of children using Apple products and services. Children under the age of 13, or equivalent minimum age in the relevant jurisdiction, are not permitted to create their own Apple IDs, unless their parent provided verifiable consent or as part of the child account creation process in Family Sharing or they have obtained a Managed Apple ID account (where available) through their school. For example, a parent must review the Apple ID and Family Sharing Disclosure and agree to the Consent to Apple’s Collection, Use and Disclosure of Your Child’s Information; and the iTunes Store Terms and Conditions, before they can begin the Apple ID account creation process for their child. In addition, schools that participate in Apple School Manager and have reviewed and consented to the Managed Apple IDs for Students Disclosure may create Managed Apple IDs for students. The Managed Apple IDs for Students Disclosure describes how Apple handles student information and supplements Apple’s Privacy Policy. Learn more about Family Sharing, the Managed Apple IDs and Restrictions for children’s accounts.

    If we learn that we have collected the personal information of a child under 13, or equivalent minimum age depending on jurisdiction, outside the above circumstances we will take steps to delete the information as soon as possible.

    If at any time a parent needs to access, correct, or delete data associated with their Family Sharing account or child’s Apple ID, they may contact us through our Privacy Contact Form.

    Or by using the contact information here.
    Location-Based Services

    To provide location-based services on Apple products, Apple and our partners and licensees may collect, use, and share precise location data, including the real-time geographic location of your Apple computer or device. Where available, location-based services may use GPS, Bluetooth, and your IP Address, along with crowd-sourced Wi-Fi hotspot and cell tower locations, and other technologies to determine your devices’ approximate location. Unless you provide consent, this location data is collected anonymously in a form that does not personally identify you and is used by Apple and our partners and licensees to provide and improve location-based products and services. For example, your device may share its geographic location with application providers when you opt in to their location services.

    Some location-based services offered by Apple, such as the “Find My iPhone” feature, require your personal information for the feature to work.
    Third‑Party Sites and Services

    Apple websites, products, applications, and services may contain links to third-party websites, products, and services. Our products and services may also use or offer products or services from third parties − for example, a third‑party iPhone app.

    Information collected by third parties, which may include such things as location data or contact details, is governed by their privacy practices. We encourage you to learn about the privacy practices of those third parties.

    If you purchase a subscription in a third party app or within News, we create a Subscriber ID that is unique to you and the developer or publisher which we use to provide reports to the developer or publisher that include information about the subscription you purchased, and your country of residence. If you cancel all of your subscriptions with a particular developer or publisher, the Subscriber ID will reset after 180 days if you do not resubscribe. This information is provided to developers so that they can understand the performance of their subscriptions.
    International Users

    All the information you provide may be transferred or accessed by entities around the world as described in this Privacy Policy. Apple uses approved Model Contractual Clauses for the international transfer of personal information collected in the European Economic Area and Switzerland. Apple, as a global company, has a number of legal entities in different jurisdictions which are responsible for the personal information which they collect and which is processed on their behalf by Apple Inc. For example, point of sale information in our Retail entities outside the U.S. is controlled by our individual Retail entities in each country. Apple, Online Store and iTunes related personal information may also be controlled by legal entities outside the U.S. as reflected in the terms of each service.

    Apple abides by the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Cross Border Privacy Rules System. The APEC CBPR system provides a framework for organizations to ensure protection of personal information transferred among participating APEC economies. To learn more about the APEC Certification and Dispute Resolution, please click on the TRUSTe seal.
    Our Companywide Commitment to Your Privacy

    To make sure your personal information is secure, we communicate our privacy and security guidelines to Apple employees and strictly enforce privacy safeguards within the company.
    Privacy Questions

    If you have any questions or concerns about Apple’s Privacy Policy or data processing or if you would like to make a complaint about a possible breach of local privacy laws, please contact us. You can always contact us by phone at the relevant Apple Support number for your country.

    All such communications are examined and replies issued where appropriate as soon as possible. If you are unsatisfied with the reply received, you may refer your complaint to the relevant regulator in your jurisdiction. If you ask us, we will endeavor to provide you with information about relevant complaint avenues which may be applicable to your circumstances.

    Apple may update its Privacy Policy from time to time. When we change the policy in a material way, a notice will be posted on our website along with the updated Privacy Policy.

    Integrity and Retention of Personal Information

    Apple makes it easy for you to keep your personal information accurate, complete, and up to date. We will retain your personal information for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law.
    Access to Personal Information

    You can help ensure that your contact information and preferences are accurate, complete, and up to date by logging in to your account at https://appleid.apple.com/. For other personal information we hold, we will provide you with access for any purpose including to request that we correct the data if it is inaccurate or delete the data if Apple is not required to retain it by law or for legitimate business purposes. We may decline to process requests that are frivolous/vexatious, jeopardize the privacy of others, are extremely impractical, or for which access is not otherwise required by local law. Access, correction, or deletion requests can be made through the regional Privacy Contact Form.
    Children & Education

    We understand the importance of taking extra precautions to protect the privacy and safety of children using Apple products and services. Children under the age of 13, or equivalent minimum age in the relevant jurisdiction, are not permitted to create their own Apple IDs, unless their parent provided verifiable consent or as part of the child account creation process in Family Sharing or they have obtained a Managed Apple ID account (where available) through their school. For example, a parent must review the Apple ID and Family Sharing Disclosure and agree to the Consent to Apple’s Collection, Use and Disclosure of Your Child’s Information; and the iTunes Store Terms and Conditions, before they can begin the Apple ID account creation process for their child. In addition, schools that participate in Apple School Manager and have reviewed and consented to the Managed Apple IDs for Students Disclosure may create Managed Apple IDs for students. The Managed Apple IDs for Students Disclosure describes how Apple handles student information and supplements Apple’s Privacy Policy. Learn more about Family Sharing, the Managed Apple IDs and Restrictions for children’s accounts.

    If we learn that we have collected the personal information of a child under 13, or equivalent minimum age depending on jurisdiction, outside the above circumstances we will take steps to delete the information as soon as possible.

    If at any time a parent needs to access, correct, or delete data associated with their Family Sharing account or child’s Apple ID, they may contact us through our Privacy Contact Form.

    Or by using the contact information here.
    Location-Based Services

    To provide location-based services on Apple products, Apple and our partners and licensees may collect, use, and share precise location data, including the real-time geographic location of your Apple computer or device. Where available, location-based services may use GPS, Bluetooth, and your IP Address, along with crowd-sourced Wi-Fi hotspot and cell tower locations, and other technologies to determine your devices’ approximate location. Unless you provide consent, this location data is collected anonymously in a form that does not personally identify you and is used by Apple and our partners and licensees to provide and improve location-based products and services. For example, your device may share its geographic location with application providers when you opt in to their location services.

    Some location-based services offered by Apple, such as the “Find My iPhone” feature, require your personal information for the feature to work.
    Third‑Party Sites and Services

    Apple websites, products, applications, and services may contain links to third-party websites, products, and services. Our products and services may also use or offer products or services from third parties − for example, a third‑party iPhone app.

    Information collected by third parties, which may include such things as location data or contact details, is governed by their privacy practices. We encourage you to learn about the privacy practices of those third parties.

    If you purchase a subscription in a third party app or within News, we create a Subscriber ID that is unique to you and the developer or publisher which we use to provide reports to the developer or publisher that include information about the subscription you purchased, and your country of residence. If you cancel all of your subscriptions with a particular developer or publisher, the Subscriber ID will reset after 180 days if you do not resubscribe. This information is provided to developers so that they can understand the performance of their subscriptions.
    International Users

    All the information you provide may be transferred or accessed by entities around the world as described in this Privacy Policy. Apple uses approved Model Contractual Clauses for the international transfer of personal information collected in the European Economic Area and Switzerland. Apple, as a global company, has a number of legal entities in different jurisdictions which are responsible for the personal information which they collect and which is processed on their behalf by Apple Inc. For example, point of sale information in our Retail entities outside the U.S. is controlled by our individual Retail entities in each country. Apple, Online Store and iTunes related personal information may also be controlled by legal entities outside the U.S. as reflected in the terms of each service.

    Apple abides by the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Cross Border Privacy Rules System. The APEC CBPR system provides a framework for organizations to ensure protection of personal information transferred among participating APEC economies. To learn more about the APEC Certification and Dispute Resolution, please click on the TRUSTe seal.
    Our Companywide Commitment to Your Privacy

    To make sure your personal information is secure, we communicate our privacy and security guidelines to Apple employees and strictly enforce privacy safeguards within the company.
    Privacy Questions

    If you have any questions or concerns about Apple’s Privacy Policy or data processing or if you would like to make a complaint about a possible breach of local privacy laws, please contact us. You can always contact us by phone at the relevant Apple Support number for your country.

    All such communications are examined and replies issued where appropriate as soon as possible. If you are unsatisfied with the reply received, you may refer your complaint to the relevant regulator in your jurisdiction. If you ask us, we will endeavor to provide you with information about relevant complaint avenues which may be applicable to your circumstances.

    Apple may update its Privacy Policy from time to time. When we change the policy in a material way, a notice will be posted on our website along with the updated Privacy Policy.

    Personal information is data that can be used to identify or contact a single person.

    You may be asked to provide your personal information anytime you are in contact with Apple or an Apple affiliated company. Apple and its affiliates may share this personal information with each other and use it consistent with this Privacy Policy. They may also combine it with other information to provide and improve our products, services, content, and advertising. You are not required to provide the personal information that we have requested, but, if you chose not to do so, in many cases we will not be able to provide you with our products or services or respond to any queries you may have.

    Here are some examples of the types of personal information Apple may collect and how we may use it:
    What personal information we collect

    When you create an Apple ID, apply for commercial credit, purchase a product, download a software update, register for a class at an Apple Retail Store, contact us or participate in an online survey, we may collect a variety of information, including your name, mailing address, phone number, email address, contact preferences, and credit card information.
    When you share your content with family and friends using Apple products, send gift certificates and products, or invite others to participate in Apple services or forums, Apple may collect the information you provide about those people such as name, mailing address, email address, and phone number. Apple will use such information to fulfill your requests, provide the relevant product or service, or for anti-fraud purposes.
    In certain jurisdictions, we may ask for a government issued ID in limited circumstances including when setting up a wireless account and activating your device, for the purpose of extending commercial credit, managing reservations, or as required by law.

    How we use your personal information

    The personal information we collect allows us to keep you posted on Apple’s latest product announcements, software updates, and upcoming events. If you don’t want to be on our mailing list, you can opt out anytime by updating your preferences.
    We also use personal information to help us create, develop, operate, deliver, and improve our products, services, content and advertising, and for loss prevention and anti-fraud purposes.
    We may use your personal information, including date of birth, to verify identity, assist with identification of users, and to determine appropriate services. For example, we may use date of birth to determine the age of Apple ID account holders.
    From time to time, we may use your personal information to send important notices, such as communications about purchases and changes to our terms, conditions, and policies. Because this information is important to your interaction with Apple, you may not opt out of receiving these communications.
    We may also use personal information for internal purposes such as auditing, data analysis, and research to improve Apple’s products, services, and customer communications.
    If you enter into a sweepstake, contest, or similar promotion we may use the information you provide to administer those programs.

    Collection and Use of Non-Personal Information

    We also collect data in a form that does not, on its own, permit direct association with any specific individual. We may collect, use, transfer, and disclose non-personal information for any purpose. The following are some examples of non-personal information that we collect and how we may use it:

    We may collect information such as occupation, language, zip code, area code, unique device identifier, referrer URL, location, and the time zone where an Apple product is used so that we can better understand customer behavior and improve our products, services, and advertising.
    We may collect information regarding customer activities on our website, iCloud services, our iTunes Store, App Store, MAC App Store, App Store for Apple TV and iBooks Stores and from our other products and services. This information is aggregated and used to help us provide more useful information to our customers and to understand which parts of our website, products, and services are of most interest. Aggregated data is considered non‑personal information for the purposes of this Privacy Policy.
    We may collect and store details of how you use our services, including search queries. This information may be used to improve the relevancy of results provided by our services. Except in limited instances to ensure quality of our services over the Internet, such information will not be associated with your IP address.
    With your explicit consent, we may collect data about how you use your device and applications in order to help app developers improve their apps.

    If we do combine non-personal information with personal information the combined information will be treated as personal information for as long as it remains combined.
    Cookies and Other Technologies

    Apple’s websites, online services, interactive applications, email messages, and advertisements may use “cookies” and other technologies such as pixel tags and web beacons. These technologies help us better understand user behavior, tell us which parts of our websites people have visited, and facilitate and measure the effectiveness of advertisements and web searches. We treat information collected by cookies and other technologies as non‑personal information. However, to the extent that Internet Protocol (IP) addresses or similar identifiers are considered personal information by local law, we also treat these identifiers as personal information. Similarly, to the extent that non-personal information is combined with personal information, we treat the combined information as personal information for the purposes of this Privacy Policy.

    Ads that are delivered by Apple’s advertising platform may appear in Apple News and in the App Store. If you do not wish to receive ads targeted to your interests from Apple’s advertising platform, you can choose to enable Limit Ad Tracking, which will opt your Apple ID out of receiving such ads regardless of what device you are using. If you enable Limit Ad Tracking on your mobile device, third-party apps cannot use the Advertising Identifier, a non-personal device identifier, to serve you targeted ads. You may still see ads in the App Store or News based on context like your search query or the channel you are reading. In third-party apps, you may see ads based on other information.

    Apple and our partners also use cookies and other technologies to remember personal information when you use our website, online services, and applications. Our goal in these cases is to make your experience with Apple more convenient and personal. For example, knowing your first name lets us welcome you the next time you visit the Apple Online Store. Knowing your country and language − and if you are an educator, your school − helps us provide a customized and more useful shopping experience. Knowing someone using your computer or device has shopped for a certain product or used a particular service helps us make our advertising and email communications more relevant to your interests. And knowing your contact information, hardware identifiers, and information about your computer or device helps us personalize your operating system, set up your iCloud service, and provide you with better customer service.

    If you want to disable cookies and you’re using the Safari web browser, go to Safari preferences and then to the privacy pane to manage your preferences. On your Apple mobile device, go to Settings, then Safari, scroll down to the Privacy & Security section, and tap on “Block Cookies” to manage your preferences. For other browsers, check with your provider to find out how to disable cookies. Please note that certain features of the Apple website will not be available once cookies are disabled.

    As is true of most internet services, we gather some information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type and language, Internet service provider (ISP), referring and exit websites and applications, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.

    We use this information to understand and analyze trends, to administer the site, to learn about user behavior on the site, to improve our product and services, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. Apple may use this information in our marketing and advertising services.

    In some of our email messages, we use a “click-through URL” linked to content on the Apple website. When customers click one of these URLs, they pass through a separate web server before arriving at the destination page on our website. We track this click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked in this way, you should not click text or graphic links in the email messages.

    Pixel tags enable us to send email messages in a format customers can read, and they tell us whether mail has been opened. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to customers.
    Disclosure to Third Parties

    At times Apple may make certain personal information available to strategic partners that work with Apple to provide products and services, or that help Apple market to customers. For example, when you purchase and activate your iPhone, you authorize Apple and your carrier to exchange the information you provide during the activation process to carry out service. If you are approved for service, your account will be governed by Apple and your carrier’s respective privacy policies. Personal information will only be shared by Apple to provide or improve our products, services and advertising; it will not be shared with third parties for their marketing purposes.
    Service Providers

    Apple shares personal information with companies who provide services such as information processing, extending credit, fulfilling customer orders, delivering products to you, managing and enhancing customer data, providing customer service, assessing your interest in our products and services, and conducting customer research or satisfaction surveys. These companies are obligated to protect your information and may be located wherever Apple operates.
    Others

    It may be necessary − by law, legal process, litigation, and/or requests from public and governmental authorities within or outside your country of residence − for Apple to disclose your personal information. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that for purposes of national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary or appropriate.

    We may also disclose information about you if we determine that disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce our terms and conditions or protect our operations or users. Additionally, in the event of a reorganization, merger, or sale we may transfer any and all personal information we collect to the relevant third party.
    Protection of Personal Information

    Apple takes the security of your personal information very seriously. Apple online services such as the Apple Online Store and iTunes Store protect your personal information during transit using encryption such as Transport Layer Security (TLS). When your personal data is stored by Apple, we use computer systems with limited access housed in facilities using physical security measures. iCloud data is stored in encrypted form including when we utilize third-party storage.

    When you use some Apple products, services, or applications or post on an Apple forum, chat room, or social networking service, the personal information and content you share is visible to other users and can be read, collected, or used by them. You are responsible for the personal information you choose to share or submit in these instances. For example, if you list your name and email address in a forum posting, that information is public. Please take care when using these features.

    If you or anyone else using Family Sharing logs on to a device that is owned by a third party, any information shared within your Family—including calendar, location, photos, and iTunes purchases—may be downloaded on to that third-party device thereby disclosing any such shared information. [See About Family Sharing for more information.]
    Integrity and Retention of Personal Information

    Apple makes it easy for you to keep your personal information accurate, complete, and up to date. We will retain your personal information for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law.
    Access to Personal Information

    You can help ensure that your contact information and preferences are accurate, complete, and up to date by logging in to your account at https://appleid.apple.com/. For other personal information we hold, we will provide you with access for any purpose including to request that we correct the data if it is inaccurate or delete the data if Apple is not required to retain it by law or for legitimate business purposes. We may decline to process requests that are frivolous/vexatious, jeopardize the privacy of others, are extremely impractical, or for which access is not otherwise required by local law. Access, correction, or deletion requests can be made through the regional Privacy Contact Form.
    Children & Education

    We understand the importance of taking extra precautions to protect the privacy and safety of children using Apple products and services. Children under the age of 13, or equivalent minimum age in the relevant jurisdiction, are not permitted to create their own Apple IDs, unless their parent provided verifiable consent or as part of the child account creation process in Family Sharing or they have obtained a Managed Apple ID account (where available) through their school. For example, a parent must review the Apple ID and Family Sharing Disclosure and agree to the Consent to Apple’s Collection, Use and Disclosure of Your Child’s Information; and the iTunes Store Terms and Conditions, before they can begin the Apple ID account creation process for their child. In addition, schools that participate in Apple School Manager and have reviewed and consented to the Managed Apple IDs for Students Disclosure may create Managed Apple IDs for students. The Managed Apple IDs for Students Disclosure describes how Apple handles student information and supplements Apple’s Privacy Policy. Learn more about Family Sharing, the Managed Apple IDs and Restrictions for children’s accounts.

    If we learn that we have collected the personal information of a child under 13, or equivalent minimum age depending on jurisdiction, outside the above circumstances we will take steps to delete the information as soon as possible.

    If at any time a parent needs to access, correct, or delete data associated with their Family Sharing account or child’s Apple ID, they may contact us through our Privacy Contact Form.

    Or by using the contact information here.
    Location-Based Services

    To provide location-based services on Apple products, Apple and our partners and licensees may collect, use, and share precise location data, including the real-time geographic location of your Apple computer or device. Where available, location-based services may use GPS, Bluetooth, and your IP Address, along with crowd-sourced Wi-Fi hotspot and cell tower locations, and other technologies to determine your devices’ approximate location. Unless you provide consent, this location data is collected anonymously in a form that does not personally identify you and is used by Apple and our partners and licensees to provide and improve location-based products and services. For example, your device may share its geographic location with application providers when you opt in to their location services.

    Some location-based services offered by Apple, such as the “Find My iPhone” feature, require your personal information for the feature to work.
    Third‑Party Sites and Services

    Apple websites, products, applications, and services may contain links to third-party websites, products, and services. Our products and services may also use or offer products or services from third parties − for example, a third‑party iPhone app.

    Information collected by third parties, which may include such things as location data or contact details, is governed by their privacy practices. We encourage you to learn about the privacy practices of those third parties.

    If you purchase a subscription in a third party app or within News, we create a Subscriber ID that is unique to you and the developer or publisher which we use to provide reports to the developer or publisher that include information about the subscription you purchased, and your country of residence. If you cancel all of your subscriptions with a particular developer or publisher, the Subscriber ID will reset after 180 days if you do not resubscribe. This information is provided to developers so that they can understand the performance of their subscriptions.

    Trump Strategist Steve Bannon Says Media Should ‘Keep Its Mouth Shut’

    WASHINGTON — Stephen K. Bannon, President Trump’s chief White House strategist, laced into the American press during an interview on Wednesday evening, arguing that news organizations had been “humiliated” by an election outcome few anticipated, and repeatedly describing the media as “the opposition party” of the current administration.

    “The media should be embarrassed and humiliated and keep its mouth shut and just listen for awhile,” Mr. Bannon said during a telephone call.

    “I want you to quote this,” Mr. Bannon added. “The media here is the opposition party. They don’t understand this country. They still do not understand why Donald Trump is the president of the United States.”

    The scathing assessment — delivered by one of Mr. Trump’s most trusted and influential advisers, in the first days of his presidency — comes at a moment of high tension between the news media and the administration, with skirmishes over the size of Mr. Trump’s inaugural crowd and the president’s false claims that millions of illegal votes by undocumented immigrants swayed the popular vote against him.

    Mr. Bannon, who rarely grants interviews to journalists outside of Breitbart News, the provocative right-wing website he ran until last August, was echoing comments by Mr. Trump this weekend, when the president said he was in “a running war” with the media and called journalists “among the most dishonest people on earth.”

    During a call to discuss Sean M. Spicer, the president’s press secretary, Mr. Bannon ratcheted up the criticism, offering a broad indictment of the news media as biased against Mr. Trump and out of touch with the American public. That’s an argument familiar to readers of Breitbart and followers of Trump-friendly personalities like Sean Hannity.

    “The elite media got it dead wrong, 100 percent dead wrong,” Mr. Bannon said of the election, calling it “a humiliating defeat that they will never wash away, that will always be there.”

    “The mainstream media has not fired or terminated anyone associated with following our campaign,” Mr. Bannon said. “Look at the Twitter feeds of those people: they were outright activists of the Clinton campaign.” (He did not name specific reporters or editors.)

    “That’s why you have no power,” Mr. Bannon added. “You were humiliated.”

    Of all of Mr. Trump’s advisers in the White House, Mr. Bannon is the one tasked with implementing the nationalist vision that Mr. Trump channeled during the later months of the campaign, one that stemmed from Mr. Bannon himself. And in many ways Mr. Trump’s first week has put into action that vision — from the description of “American carnage’’ Mr. Trump laid out in his inauguration speech, to a series of executive actions outlining policy on trade agreements, immigration, the building of a border wall and the demands that Mexico pay for it.

    He is one of the strongest forces in a White House with competing power centers. A savvy manipulator of the press, and a proud provocateur, Mr. Bannon was among the few advisers in Mr. Trump’s circle who was said to have urged on Mr. Spicer’s confrontational, emotional statement to a shocked White House briefing room on Saturday, when the White House disputed press reports on the inauguration crowd size. He mostly shares Mr. Trump’s view that the news media has misunderstood the movement that the president rode into office.

    On the telephone, Mr. Bannon spoke in blunt but calm tones, peppered with a dose of profanities, and humorously referred to himself at one point as “Darth Vader.” He said, with ironic relish, that Mr. Trump was elected by a surge of support from “the working class hobbits and deplorables.”

    The conversation was initiated by Mr. Bannon to offer praise for Mr. Spicer, who has been criticized this week for making false claims at the White House podium about the attendance of Mr. Trump’s inaugural crowd, for calling reporters dishonest and lecturing them about what stories to write and for failing to disavow Mr. Trump’s lie about widespread voter fraud in the election.

    Asked if he was concerned that Mr. Spicer had lost credibility with the news media, Mr. Bannon chortled. “Are you kidding me?” he said. “We think that’s a badge of honor. ‘Questioning his integrity’ — are you kidding me? The media has zero integrity, zero intelligence, and no hard work.”

    “You’re the opposition party,” Mr. Bannon said. “Not the Democratic Party. You’re the opposition party. The media’s the opposition party.”

    Mr. Bannon mostly referred to the “elite” or “mainstream” media, but he cited The New York Times and The Washington Post by name.

    “The paper of record for our beloved republic, The New York Times, should be absolutely ashamed and humiliated,” Mr. Bannon said. “They got it 100 percent wrong.”

    He added that he has been a reader of The Times for most of his adult life.

    ‘Se cancela reunión hasta que México trate a EU con respeto’: Trump
    ‘El presidente de México y yo hemos acordado cancelar nuestro encuentro para la semana próxima y seguir otra ruta’, dijo Trump en Filadelfia
    26/01/2017 12:33 Redacción

    “Ese encuentro no tendrá lugar hasta que México trate al país con respeto”, aseguró el empresario.

    FILADELFIA.

    El presidente estadunidense Donald Trump aseguró durante un evento con el Partido Republicano que él y su homólogo mexicano, Enrique Peña Nieto, acordaron cancelar su reunión del próximo martes luego de la negativa del gobierno mexicano de aceptar pagar por el muro fronterizo de más de 3 mil kilómetros que el mandatario de EU busca construir. “Ese encuentro no tendrá lugar hasta que México trate al país con respeto”, aseguró el empresario.

    El presidente de México y yo hemos acordado cancelar nuestro encuentro acordado para la semana próxima y seguir otra ruta, EU no va a pagar por el muro” dijo Trump ante líderes republicanos.

    Para Trump, que México trate de manera justa y con respeto a EU significa que acepte pagar el muro que él quiere construir en la frontera para frenar la inmigración ilegal, algo que Peña Nieto rechaza rotundamente.

    El mandatario insistió en que ha “dejado claro” al gobierno mexicano que los estadunidenses “no pagarán” ese muro, al enfatizar la importancia de la seguridad fronteriza.

    A primera hora del día, Trump amenazó con cancelar su reunión con Peña Nieto si México no estaba dispuesto a pagar por el “tan necesario” muro, a lo que el mandatario mexicano respondió con la suspensión de su viaje a EU.

    Si México no está dispuesto a pagar el tan necesario muro, entonces sería mejor cancelar la inminente reunión (con Peña Nieto)”, señaló Trump en Twitter.

    La respuesta de Peña Nieto también llegó a través de la red social. “Esta mañana hemos informado a la Casa Blanca que no asistiré a la reunión de trabajo programada para el próximo martes con el @POTUS”, escribió el mandatario mexicano.

    Antes de las declaraciones de Trump desde Filadelfia, el portavoz de la Casa Blanca, Sean Spicer, dijo que iban a buscar una fecha “para concertar algo en el futuro” y mantener con México “las líneas de comunicación abiertas”.

    Asimismo, el magnate neoyorquino habló del Tratado de Libre Comercio de América del Norte (TLCAN) y aseguró que es un acuerdo ‘terrible’ un ‘desastre total’ que le cuesta a su país 6 mil millones de dólares.

    No permitiré que nuestros contribuyentes paguen el costo de este tratado, uno que debimos renegociar hace mucho tiempo”, añadió Trump.

    No estamos para tolerar que alguien nos diga qué hacer: SCJN
    Exhortó a los mexicanos a hacer un frente, con unidad y solidaridad, para defender al país y tener un plan como nación para salir adelante ante cualquier adversidad

    CIUDAD DE MÉXICO.

    El presidente de la Suprema Corte de Justicia de la Nación (SCJN), Luis María Aguilar, aseguró que México no está para tolerar que alguien nos venga a decir qué hacer.

    Durante su discurso en la Inauguración del Foro sobre el Día Internacional de Protección de Datos Personales 2017, el ministro enfatizó que somos un país soberano y con independencia.

    No podemos tolerar que nadie nos venga a decir lo que debemos hacer, ni podemos tolerar lo que otras personas quieren hacer de nosotros”, dijo.

    En su discurso, el ministro presidente pidió apegarse a lo que la Constitución rige para continuar siendo una nación que hace frente ante cualquier problema.

    Lo único que necesitamos es unirnos entorno a las instituciones que establece nuestra Constitución y hacer solidaridad entre nosotros cuando más se necesita, en torno a las autoridades que nos representan y a las autoridades que están para defendernos”, afirmó.

    Cada mexicano es un elemento de la defensa del país y cada mexicano puede, en su conjunto, hacer que México siga siendo grande, como lo ha sido desde su origen”, ponderó.

    Frente a los presientes del Congreso de la Unión, del INAI, el jefe de la Ciudad de México y la titular de la Secretaría de la Función Pública (SFP), Luis María Aguilar expuso que es esta normativa la que nos ha permitido salir adelante.

    Este referente es el que nosotros nos permite tener un plan de vida, un plan de nación, un plan que nos permita, como lo ha hecho en el pasado este gran país, enfrentar cualquier circunstancia”, dijo.

    Revela Vanity Fair el oscuro pasado de Melania Trump
    La revista Fanity Fair, en su edición mexicana, cuestionó a la primera dama de EU sobre sus secretos familiares en Eslovenia
    26/01/2017 14:15 Redacción

    ‘No tengo nada que ocultar’, contestó la primera dama a una entrevista de la publicación.

    CIUDAD DE MÉXICO.

    Bajo el nombre de Melanija Knav, Melania Trump dejó un secreto y oscuro pasado en el pueblo de Sevnica, Eslovenia, en donde nació en 1970.
    PUBLICIDAD
    inRead invented by Teads

    Su padre, Viktor Knavs, estuvo involucrado en comercio ilegal y evasión de impuestos en 1976. La edición de febrero de la revista Vanity Fair México asegura que, al preguntar a Melania sobre esto, la primera dama estadunidense respondió de manera cortante “jamás lo investigaron ni tuvo ningún problema. Nuestro pasado está limpio, no tengo nada que ocultar”.

    Viktor Knavs, quien fue miembro del Partido Comunista de Eslovenia, fue chofer del alcalde de Hrastnik y más tarde se hizo representante de una empresa automovilística estatal.

    Su padre también es acusado de tener un hijo no reconocido con Marija Cigelnjak en 1964, antes de casarse con la madre de Melania. Según la investigación de la publicación, Viktor le exigió a Marija que abortara, pero ella se rehusó y hoy, su hijo, Denis Cigelnjak tiene 50 años.

    El hermanastro de Melania habló en exclusiva con Vanity Fair, algo que nunca había hecho con otros medios, contó su historia y permitió a la revista buscar los documentos relacionados con su caso. Melania fue preguntada sobre esto y lo negó rápidamente. Más tarde, la publicación le envió los documentos y cambió su posición “no entendí la pregunta. Lo he sabido por años, mi padre es un ciudadano y les pido que respeten su privacidad”.
    Melania en la Casa Blanca

    La eslovena dijo que busca ser una primera dama tradicional, como lo era Jackie Kennedy.

    Nadie me controla. Viajo con mi marido cuando sé que puedo ir y sé que no pasa nada si mi hijo se queda unos días con la servidumbre”, dijo Melania sobre relación con Trump. “Donald me apoya mucho. Si le digo; `me voy a dar un baño o me van a dar un masaje´, él no se opone.” agregó.

    El artículo recuerda una entrevista que le hizo el conductor televisivo Howard Stern a Trump en 2005 y en la que le preguntó sobre su esposa, Melania.

    Tiene proporciones perfectas (mide 1.80 m y pesa 56 kilos) y unos senos estupendos, lo cual no es un asunto insignificante”, dijo en aquel entonces el actual presidente de EU.

    Stern le preguntó sobre si seguirían juntos si ella sufriera un accidente y resultara con alguna deformidad.

    “¿Y los pechos? ¿Cómo lucirían?”, Stern dijo que a los pechos no les pasaría nada, a lo que Trump afirmó que, en ese caso, seguiría con ella: “porque es un detalle importante”.

    WASHINGTON — On Monday, President Trump gathered House and Senate leaders in the State Dining Room for a get-to-know-you reception, served them tiny meatballs and pigs-in-a-blanket, and quickly launched into a story meant to illustrate what he believes to be rampant, unchecked voter fraud.

    Mr. Trump kicked off the meeting, participants said, by retelling his debunked claim that he would have won the popular vote if not for the three million to five million ballots cast by “illegals.” He followed it up with a Twitter post early Wednesday calling for a major investigation into voter fraud.

    When one of the Democrats protested, Mr. Trump said he was told a story by “the very famous golfer, Bernhard Langer,” whom he described as a friend, according to three staff members who were in the room for the meeting.

    In the emerging Trump era, the story was a memorable example, for the legislators and the country, of how an off-the-cuff yarn — unverifiable and of confusing origin — became a prime policy mover for a president whose fact-gathering owes more to the oral tradition than th
