Oh Katy Perry, you are a very foolish person

Pop megastar Katy Perry made an impassioned plea for people to “co-exist” and said that “barriers” or “borders” could detract from that goal in an interview following the terrorist bombing at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, U.K. on Monday night that claimed the lives of at least 22 people and injured dozens of others.

In an interview Tuesday on Elvis Duran and the Morning Show, the “Chained to the Rhythm” singer suggested that people “unite” following the tragedy, which occurred as young fans and their parents were leaving the 21,000-seat arena at around 10:35 p.m. local time.

“Whatever we say behind people’s backs, the Internet can be a little bit ruthless as far as fan bases go but I think that the greatest thing we can do is just unite and love on each other,” Perry said, adding, “No barriers, no borders, we all just need to co-exist.”

Good Freaking Grief! Coexist? No borders? That type of nonsense is what helped lead to this massacre. Good Lord how dense can some people be? The swine who targeted children, with a nail bomb, cared nothing about coexisting did he? Perry is  clueless if she cannot see that evil people use the West’s graciousness to attack us. Case in point

It all started with a complaint over littering – and ended with two men arrested and the discovery of an arsenal of guns and bomb-making devices by Minneapolis police. Now, local authorities have flagged the arrests for review by the Department of Homeland Security.

5 EYEWITNESS NEWS spoke with the man who called police to the scene. He asked us not to use his name because he doesn’t want any more attention than what he’s already received. He said he walked by a parked SUV near the intersection of North 44th Avenue and Humboldt Avenue North the evening of May 11 when he said he saw someone throw food wrappers out of a vehicle window onto the ground.

“My guardian angels steered me in that direction, and it just mushroomed from there,” the man said.

He said the two men in the car started fighting with him after he asked them to clean up the trash, and he paused to get the vehicle’s license plate number. The man said he called 911 after the men got out of the car and indicated they had guns.

Trump Budget Cuts EPA By 31 Percent – Washington Free Beacon

The Trump administration’s budget cuts the Environmental Protection Agency by 31 percent.

The budget, released officially Tuesday, seeks to reduce the agency’s redundancies and efficiencies while prioritizing infrastructure and environmental clean up efforts. If adopted, the EPA would receive $5.655 billion.

The budget allocates $2.3 billion for state revolving funds, an increase from current agency funding in the continuing resolution. Other budget increases include programs related to drinking water, wastewater, and infrastructure.

The Water Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act program, which provides subsidies for water projects, would receive $20 million. The administration expects private-public partnerships of up to $1 billion for infrastructure investments.

In addition, nearly $1 billion will go towards clean up efforts, including superfund sites, and Brownfields. The EPA says the budget respects the American taxpayer by saving $1 billion by eliminating roughly 50 duplicative programs…

Drunk Driver Damages ‘Don’t Drink And Drive’ Patrol Car In Crystal River, Florida – WFLA

The Citrus County Sheriff’s Office says a newly unveiled “Don’t Drink and Drive” patrol car was damaged after a crash involving a drunk driver.

Deputies say 63-year-old Paul Wilkins of Crystal River drove through cones at a traffic control point near US-19 and Citrus Avenue around 10 p.m. Saturday. The 2017 Pirate Fest was happening at the time in the area and deputies were warning drivers about traffic in the area.

After driving through the cones, the sheriff’s office says Wilkins hit a detective’s car and pushed it forward 30 feet into the new “Don’t Drink and Drive” patrol car.

Both sheriff’s office cars were parked and had red and blue lights flashing. Wilkins told deputies he did not see them…

Democrat Congressional Candidate Says Sexism Not Islam Is To Blame For Manchester Terrorist Attack – Townhall

Cortney covered the horrific terrorist attack in Manchester, UK after an Ariana Grande concert, which left 22 people dead, including an eight-year-old girl, and at least 50 people wounded.

It’s the worst terror attack the United Kingdom has experienced since the London July 7 bombings in 2005. Twelve of the 22 fatalities were under the age of 16. The UK authorities are treating this as a terrorist attack.

The perpetrator of this suicide bombing was 23-year-old Salman Abedi, who detonated his explosive near the box office of the Manchester Arena. ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Responses have been that of shock, horror, disgust, and sadness. Social media responses are mostly an outpouring of support, though some have been quite vile. Over here, one Democratic congressional candidate in Massachusetts, Brianna Wu, decided to blame sexism instead of terrorism…

Leftist Crime Update: Obama NSA Conducted Illegal Searches On Americans For Years – Circa

Racist ‘Social Justice Warriors’ Destroy White Women-Owned Small Business – Heatstreet

Kali Wilgus and Liz “LC” Connelly, owners of Portland pop-up shop Kooks Burritos, just wanted to make and sell some really great burritos. So when they were on a trip to Puerto Nuevo, Mexico, they “picked the brains” of the local tortilla ladies and brought those recipes back to the States.

“I picked the brains of every tortilla lady there in the worst broken Spanish ever, and they showed me a little of what they did,” Connelly told Willamette Weekly. “They told us the basic ingredients, and we saw them moving and stretching the dough similar to how pizza makers do before rolling it out with rolling pins. They wouldn’t tell us too much about technique, but we were peeking into the windows of every kitchen, totally fascinated by how easy they made it look. We learned quickly it isn’t quite that easy.”

Whelp, apparently this interview sparked an Internet shitstorm, which ended in Kooks Burritos shutting down and the two white women who owned it scrubbing social media of the business’ existence…

Democrats In Illinois Senate Pass 33% Hike In Personal And Corporate Income Taxes – Zero Hedge

Senate Democrats in Illinois, with a final vote of 32-26, have just passed a new budget proposal that includes a massive personal and corporate income tax hike and an expansion of the state’s sales tax, after saying they are no longer willing to wait for a broader deal with Republicans.

As the Chicago Tribune noted earlier this morning, the Democrats’ budget proposal includes a ~33% hike in both the the personal and corporate income tax rates and an expansion of the state’s share of sales tax revenue. In all, the package would cost Illinois taxpayers an incremental $5 billion.

Democrats spent the weekend tweaking the spending plan, and unveiled an updated proposal late Monday. It calls for spending $37.3 billion after raising about $5 billion through the tax hikes; a floor vote is expected Tuesday, said Sen. Heather Steans, a Chicago Democrat and key budget negotiator.

The blueprint relies on the passage of companion legislation that would raise the personal income tax rate from 3.75 percent to 4.95 percent, which is just below the 5 percent rate in place before Rauner took office…

Astronomical Percentage Of British Students Willing To Pay For College With Sex – Daily Caller

A staggering majority of students in the United Kingdom are willing to enter into a relationship with a “sugar daddy” to fund their college ambitions.

The crushing weight of student loan debt is pushing young adults into desperation, forcing them to look for new ways to potentially fund their educations. London South Bank University conducted a poll with The Independent, investigating what students are willing to do for a financial boost. Broadly, the Sunday poll found roughly one in three students are willing to trade sex for tuition, reports The Independent.

Roughly 75 percent of respondents said they would devote time to a “sugar daddy” when asked if they would engage in a relationship with a person they were attracted to for free tuition.

Theresa May Says Another Terrorist Attack Is Feared Imminent – Daily Mail

Troops are to be deployed onto Britain’s streets amid fears a further terror attack ‘may be imminent’.

Theresa May announced the move this evening, less than 24 hours after the bomb attack at a teen concert in Manchester, which left 22 dead and 59 injured.

The Prime Minister confirmed the identity of the Manchester suicide bomber as 22-year-old British Libyan Salman Abedi.

But intelligence agencies fear he may not have acted alone – leaving open the possibility of an active Islamist terror cell on the loose.

Britain’s Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre last night raised the terror threat level to ‘critical’, its highest level.

The threat level has only been raised to ‘critical’ twice since the system was introduced in August 1, 2006.

It came after the worst UK atrocity since 2005, when a nail bomber murdered 22 concert-goers as young as eight at an Ariana Grande concert.

The suicide bomber Abedi, a Mancunian of Libyan descent, was the son of an airport security worker, MailOnline can reveal…

Newt Gingrich: World Leaders Respect Trump; Media ‘Pygmies’ Don’t – News Max

It’s “ironic” to watch world leaders in Israel and Saudi Arabia treating President Donald Trump with “enormous respect” while the “pygmies” in the media treat him with contempt, and the president and his administration should take a tougher stance against them, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Monday.

“The reporters are pygmies, they’re little midgets,” Gingrich told Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” program. “They spent their lifetime watching other people do real things.”

Further, Gingrich said, the Trump administration should put out a new rule when it comes to the media.

“If you’re a midget, that’s fine, but you’re not going to be at a press conference with me or my staff,” Gingrich said members of the media should be told. “I think they need to have a tougher attitude toward the media.”

That would mean, he continued, for Trump to remind members of the media that he is the president, and “‘you’re not. And if you’re not worthy of my talking to you, I’m not going to talk to you.'”…

Owner Of Bar Where Seth Rich Was Last Seen Alive: Cops Never Talked To Staff Or Looked At Surveillance Video – WorldNetDaily

A manager of the Washington, D.C., bar where Democratic National Committee worker Seth Rich was last spotted hours before he was shot and killed last summer told WND that D.C. police officers never interviewed the bar’s staff or requested any evidence from the bar, including the bar’s surveillance video from that night, as part of an investigation into Rich’s murder.

The revelation backs up a claim made by a private investigator who worked on the case who said D.C. police were told to “stand down” on the investigation. WND also can report that the investigator recently was ordered to “cease and desist” his work on the murder case.

“The police never asked for the surveillance video from that night,” a manager of Lou’s City Bar told WND.

His name is being withheld for this story.

He said the bar’s surveillance video runs in a cycle of 30 days and that, by now, any footage that may have existed of Rich the last night he was seen alive has been taped over.

Furthermore, the manager said police never asked for any other kind of evidence from the bar such as Rich’s bar receipt from that night…

Almost 740,000 Visa Overstays In 2016 – Numbers USA

Visa overstaying remains a serious problem in the United States. 739,450 people overstayed their visas in 2016, and almost 630,000 remained in the U.S. by year’s end, according to a new DHS report. The actual number may be higher because the report does not cover foreign visitors who entered through a vehicular or land port of entry.

The biggest offender countries were Canada and Mexico. 182,000 foreign nationals overstayed from just those two nations. By arrival category, student visa holders were the worst. Five percent of the 1.5 million student or exchange students ignored their visa terms.

Of the more than 21.6 million Visa Waiver Program, 147,282 overstayed their visa, with 128,806 suspected in-country overstays.

Only 1.5 percent of the 50,437,278 visitors who came through air and sea ports left in accordance with their visa. But due to the volume, the small overstay rate accounts for almost 740,000 illegal aliens….

Why The Left Refuses To Talk About Venezuela – Christopher Kemmett

Elizabeth ‘Pocahontas’ Warren Gets Called Out By Cherokee Indians About Her Heritage: ‘Prove It’ – Gateway Pundit

Tulsa police officer acquitted in shooting of “unarmed” Black man, Racial Obsession Syndrome ensues

Tulsa police officer Betty Shelby, who fatally shot a man, who refused to comply with officer commands last year has been acquitted. Social Justice Warriors are, of course irate. These SJWs are, as usual ignoring certain facts about the case to push another “hands up don’t shoot” narrative. I will get to those facts in a bit, but first, here is what Clinton C Yates, a writer for The Undefeated  wrote about the acquittal

Another day, another police officer walks free after killing an unarmed black person.

Here he goes, painting police officers with a very broad brush. Yates irresponsibly paints an America where police are hunting down unarmed Black men and getting away with it. This is, to be fair, complete bull excrement

You might remember the case of Terence Crutcher. Last year in Tulsa, he was killed by Officer Betty Shelby after a situation that unfolded outside of his car that was caught by police dash cameras as well as helicopter footage. It shows Crutcher, walking toward his car with police trailing him, guns pointed. Then, Crutcher’s arms come down and shots ring out, leaving him to lie there and die on the side of the road in Oklahoma. She was acquitted on Wednesday.

Of course, the fact is that Crutcher was walking away from officers towards his car, despite their commands to stop. His hands were up, until he got to his vehicle, then they went down, his right hand dropping towards his front pocket and his left out of view, with his body leaning forward as if he might be reaching into his vehicle. Then, officer Shelby fired, fearing, with some good reason, that Crutcher might be reaching for a weapon. Yates might not realize that often when a suspect does not comply, and acts as if he or she might have, or be attempting to get a weapon, then officers do have a right to use force. Here is Shelbys version of that day

At about 7:36 p.m. Friday, dispatchers received a 911 call about an abandoned SUV in the middle of a street, with the driver’s door open and the engine still running, Tulsa Police Chief Chuck Jordan said Monday. The caller said a man was running from the vehicle, saying it was “going to blow.”

Shelby and another officer were on their way to a domestic violence call when she came across the SUV, Jordan said.

On her way to that call, Shelby saw Crutcher standing in the middle of the road, looking down at the ground, Wood said, adding that she would have stopped and checked up on him had she not been on the other call.

She then saw the SUV parked in the middle of the street, obstructing traffic in both directions, Wood said. The engine was running when she got there, which she found odd because she assumed it was either disabled or broken down, he said.

Wood said “it’s important to remember” that Shelby was on the scene with Crutcher for about a minute and a half before the start of the video clip released by police on Monday.

When Shelby approached the car, the doors were closed, and the windows were open, Wood said. She looked into the passenger’s side to make sure no one was on the floor of the car, and as she was getting ready to move to the driver’s side, she turned around and saw Crutcher walking toward her, Wood said.

Wood said that Shelby then said to Crutcher, “Hey, is this your car?”

Crutcher didn’t respond, simply dropping his head while continuing to look at Shelby, “kind of under his brow,” Wood said. Crutcher then began to put his hand into his left pocket, Wood said, adding that Shelby told Crutcher, “Hey, please keep your hands out of your pocket while you’re talking to me. Let’s deal with his car.”

Crutcher did not respond, Wood said, so Shelby ordered him again to get his hand out of his pocket. He then pulled his hand away and put his hands up in the air, even though he was not instructed to do so, which Shelby found strange, Wood said.

Shelby tried to get Crutcher to talk to her, but he simply mumbled something unintelligible and stared at her, Wood said. He then turned and walked to the edge of the roadway and turned to look at her, his hands still in the air, Wood said. He put his hands down and started to reach into his pocket again, Wood said, and she ordered him again to get his hands out of his pocket.

At this point, Shelby, a drug recognition expert, believed Crutcher was “on something,” Wood said, possibly PCP.

In fact, Crutcher was on PCP, which would explain erratic behavior.

Shelby then radioed in that she had a subject “who is not following commands.”

“You can kind of hear a degree of stress in her voice when she says that,” Wood said.

Shelby then pulled out her gun and had Crutcher at gunpoint as she commanded him to get on his knees, Wood said. She pulled out a gun instead of a Taser because she thought he had a weapon, and she was planning to arrest him for being intoxicated in public and possibly obstructing the investigation, Wood said.

Shelby ordered Crutcher to stop multiple times as Crutcher walked toward the SUV with his hands up, Wood said.

But those orders cannot be heard in the audio from the dashcam video, which starts as another patrol car pulls up to the scene, showing Crutcher walking toward the SUV with his hands up as Shelby follows him, apparently with her weapon drawn and pointing at Crutcher.

As the video from the helicopter begins, Crutcher was “angling” toward his car while Shelby repeatedly commanded him to stop, Wood said. His hands were still in the air.

“As a police officer, you have to wonder — why would someone ignore commands at gunpoint to get to a certain location?” Wood said.

Crutcher’s arms came down, and he turned to face the car, Wood said, and he reached into the driver’s side window with his left hand. That’s when Shelby fired one shot and a fellow officer, Tyler Turnbough, deployed a Taser, Wood said.

Shelby believed that when Crutcher attempted to reach into the car, he was retrieving a weapon, Wood said. In her interview with homicide detectives, she said, “I was never so scared in my life as in that moment right then,” according to Wood.

Police are trained not to allow a suspect to return to their vehicle, or to have their hand sin their pockets where a weapon might be. But, this is not important to Yates, who is focused solely on race. He writes

Where to begin. We’ll start with the trail, as the video shows you the details of the interaction. From there, let’s fast-forward to Shelby’s testimony, in which she states very plainly what the specific threat of police privilege and white supremacy means. Her fear was more important than her victim’s life. Beyond that admission, which was honest, she made an even more important statement about why, following her fear, she chose to shoot: That’s police policy.

Wow, Yates is out in left field here. Where he gets to police privilege, or White supremacy is beyond me. Maybe Yates was on PCP or some other mind-altering drug when he wrote this. Clearly Yates does not grasp the reality of use of deadly force. An officer can use deadly force when in fear for their life, or in fear of the lives of others. The late Bob Owens, laid out the case that Shelby was justified last September

The U.S. Supreme Court case Graham vs. Connor (1989) established that officers who use force must be judged on the totality of circumstances and a standard of “objective reasonableness.” That is, they must be judged on whether a similarly trained person in the same circumstance with the same vantage point and perspective as the officer in question would have a similar reaction, without the benefit of hindsight.

The murder of Deputy Kyle Dinkheller is an especially graphic example of why law enforcement officers never allow a belligerent suspect to return to their vehicle and reach inside. The chilling screams of Deputy Dinkheller have echoed through law enforcement training academies throughout the nation for 18 years as instructors have shown police cadets why it is so important for their safety, the safety of their suspects, and the safety of the public at large that they maintain control over the situation.

That brings us back to the perceptions held by Officer Betty Shelby and Officer Tyler Turnbough as Mr. Crutcher returned to his vehicle, against numerous commands to stop.

Here’s the helicopter’s view of the scene just seconds before Officer Shelby made the calculated decision to fire her handgun and Officer Turnbough then fired his taser either at the same time or split second later.

crutcher-helo-922-e1474565479701

You’ll note from the photo that Crutcher’s hand is down by his waist at approximately the one o’clock position. We can’t see his left arm (it’s blocked by his body), but he does indeed to be learning forward, as if he’s reaching into the vehicle.

As investigators look into the shooting, they’re quite likely to concur with Officer Shelby that the positioning of Mr. Crutcher’s body and the angle it is leaning does suggest that he’s leaning and perhaps reaching with his left hand. Whether he his actually reaching into the vehicle as Officer Shelby perceives, or it is merely hidden by his body lean and it just appears that he’s reaching into the vehicle is ultimately immaterial.

Terence Crutcher was going to be arrested for being intoxicated in public (and not for the first time), but resisted arrest (again, not for the first time), and appears to be reaching for a weapon (yet again, not for the first time).

I’d argue that under the totality of the circumstances, it is very reasonable for Officer Shelby to suspect that a non-compliant suspect whom she suspected of being intoxicated on PCP was reaching for a weapon when he lowered his hands and leaned hard with his side in a motion that appears consistent from her perspective at the rear of the vehicle with someone trying to reach inside it.

All of this of course, would be wasted on Yates I fear. He is so stricken with the false narratives of Black Lives Matter and with Racial Obsession Syndrome, that he ignores facts.

“She articulated all of the reasons why she believed he was armed and why she took the action that she did that was in accordance with her training. In times of heavy stress and fear and uncomfortability, we revert to our training, and that’s what you want an officer to do. And you want them to handle situations the way they’re trained to handle them,” Jerad Lindsey, chairman of the Tulsa FOP, said earlier this week about Shelby’s testimony. “It takes tenths of seconds for someone to already make the mental decision to pull a weapon and shoot you.”

The last sentence is the most important. What it basically says is the very same logic that police use to justify their decision-making in firing rounds is exactly what’s used against you when you haven’t even done anything. You can talk about the inherent danger of police work and what it takes to protect a community, but the problem with the “blue lives matter” logic is two-fold. One, no one is born a police officer. Secondarily, because it is a job, there are certain risks that simply have to be a part of the accountability scale in order for the entire system to work, if you’re even going to consider fairness a part of the equation. If every encounter is going to be considered life or death, then the logic should apply both ways. Meaning, Crutcher might have thought they were going to try to kill him, too. Otherwise, what you’re openly admitting is: This isn’t fair and doesn’t have to be.

By leaving the judgment to human nature and throwing one’s hands up after that, you’re completely eliminating acknowledgment of the most obvious of factors here: race. Inherent bias, never mind outright racist attitudes and methods, are well-studied and documented components of law enforcement, but they are clearly the defining factor in many cases. To be noted, the window was up.

This man’s blackness obviously made her feel like he was more likely to kill her or her colleagues.

Good Freaking Grief he has gone completely off the rails. That last paragraph is basically incoherent ramblings, with a healthy portion of idiocy. What does it matter tha no one is born a police officer? And, yes, there are inherent risks to police work, so what? Yates seems to believe that police should cede the right to defend themselves, to be “fair”. And I have no clue where he gets the “every encounter is going to be considered life or death” lunacy from. People of all races have millions of interactions with police every year that end up in no one getting hurt. But, again facts matter not to those suffering fron Racial Obsession Syndrome. I leave you with more of Yates babbling foolishness

The point here is that the violence that takes the lives of so many unarmed black people isn’t just accidental or incidental, it’s state-sponsored.

Again, this is the price of people not being versed in critical thinking and common sense isn’t it? Yates is angry, he is emoting and by God facts will not deter him in his outrageously  outrageous outrage. He prefers ignorance and anger to truth. Again, that is sad

Alabama Legislature Passes Bill Protecting Confederate Memorials – Daily Caller
.

.
The Alabama senate passed a bill Friday which would prevent the changing of the names of Confederate memorials and removing of historic Confederate monuments.

The bill “would prohibit the relocation, removal, alteration, renaming, or other disturbance of any architecturally significant building, memorial building, memorial street, or monument that has stood on public property for 40 or more years,” reads the text of the bill, reported Yahoo News.

Sen. Gerald Allen, a Republican sponsor of the bill, blasted what he perceived as a “wave of political correctness” assailing monuments dedicated to people who, despite having flaws, were important to history.

“You say we are protecting history,” said Sen. Hank Sanders, a Democrat African American, according to Yahoo News…

Blackstone, Saudis Set To Invest $40 Billion In Primarily U.S. Infrastructure – The Hill

A company founded by one of President Trump’s top supporters and Saudi Arabia’s sovereign wealth fund announced plans Saturday to invest $40 billion in infrastructure projects, mostly in the U.S. The announcement comes as President Trump receives a warm welcome in Saudi Arabia during his first trip abroad as president.

Blackstone, which was founded by Trump supporter Schwarzman, signed a non-binding memorandum with Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund (PIF) for the project. Blackstone said PIF had committed $20 billion to the project. Blackstone and PIF expressed optimism about the fund.

The project reflects our positive views around the ambitious infrastructure initiatives being undertaken in the United States as announced by President Trump,” PIF’s managing director Yasir al-Rumayyan said.

“This will create well-paying American jobs and will lay the foundation for stronger long-term economic growth,” Blackstone president Hamilton James said…

Humans Have Inadvertently Created A Protective Barrier Around The Earth – Daily Wire
.

.
Humans take a beating when it comes to the environment. Sure, we’re part of the natural order here on Planet Earth, but because we’re at the top of the food chain, we get a lot of blame when things go wrong. Humans have driven thousands of species extinct, some by habitat destruction, others by pure gluttony (we literally ate all the flightless dodo birds – literally). And, of course, whenever the temperature warms (or cools), it’s mankind’s fault.

But sometimes, every so often, the human race gets a little credit, too. Like this week, when NASA reported that space probes discovered an artificial barrier around Earth that was created purely by human activity. The barrier is caused by low frequency radio communications “interacting with particles in space, which results in a sort of shield protecting Earth from high energy radiation in space,” Newsweek reports…

‘Penises Cause Climate Change’; Progressives Fooled By Peer-Reviewed Hoax Study – James Delingpole

Gender studies is a fake academic industry populated by charlatans, deranged activists and gullible idiots. Now, a pair of enterprising hoaxers has proved it scientifically by persuading an academic journal to peer-review and publish their paper claiming that the penis is not really a male genital organ but a social construct.

The paper, published by Cogent Social Sciences – “a multidisciplinary open access journal offering high quality peer review across the social sciences” – also claims that penises are responsible for causing climate change.

The two hoaxers are Peter Boghossian, a full-time faculty member in the Philosophy department at Portland State University, and James Lindsay, who has a doctorate in math and a background in physics.

They were hoping to emulate probably the most famous academic hoax in recent years: the Sokal Hoax – named after NYU and UCL physics professor Alan Sokal – who in 1996 persuaded an academic journal called Social Text to accept a paper titled “Transgressing the Boundaries: Towards a Transformative Hermeneutics of Quantum Gravity”…

“We Will Go To War; We Will Fight You”: China’s Xi Threatens Duterte If Philippines Drills For Oil – Zero Hedge

The Philippines’ outspoken president Rodrigo Duterte got a glimpse of the true snarling, belligerent Chinese dragon hiding behind the cheerful, globalist Panda facade earlier this week, when in response to a claim that his country was prepared to drill for oil in a disputed part of the South China Sea, China’s president Xi told him matter-of-factly that in that case he should prepare for war.

In a meeting on Monday between the two presidents, Duterte asserted his nation’s sovereignty over disputed South China Sea territory citing last year’s ruling by the Permanent Court of Arbitration. “We intend to drill oil there, if it’s yours, well, that’s your view, but my view is, I can drill the oil, if there is some inside the bowels of the earth because it is ours,” Duterte said in a speech, recalling his conversation with Xi…

Huge Medicare Fraud Tied To Obama Appointee’s Old Firm – Daily Caller

Federal prosecutors slapped a multi-billion dollar Medicare fraud charge against United Health Group (UHG) and a key subsidiary President Barack Obama’s former top insurance official once headed, according to an investigation by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

It was the third time health fraud charges have been filed against United and its two major subsidiaries, Optum and OptumInsight.

United spokesman Matthew Burns denied the allegations, saying in a statement, “We reject these more than 5-year-old claims and will contest them vigorously.”

Andy Slavitt, who led the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) under Obama and the Obamacare health insurance program, was CEO of OptumInsight and Group Executive Vice President for Optum where the fraud allegedly was committed.

He was a senior executive with UHG from 2003 to 2013 before he entered the Obama administration. Prosecutors claim the fraud continued from at least 2005 to 2014…

President Trump on Saturday signed a $110 billion arms deal between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia.

The arms transaction is intended to bolster national security in Saudi Arabia as well as the country’s ability to combat terrorism. The White House says the agreement will provide fighter jets, tanks, radar, combat ships and anti-missile defense systems to Saudi Arabia and will create defense-related jobs in the U.S.

The defense cooperation agreements signed Saturday offer the Saudis $110 billion immediately, and ultimately worth $350 billion over the next decade. In total, Trump signed eight letters of acceptance and one letter of intent said White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders. Also signed was a joint vision statement and private sector agreements…

Leftist Corruption Update: Teachers’ Union Contract Guarantees Jail-Time Pay – Washington Free Beacon

Staff members at the nation’s largest teachers’ union are guaranteed pay for the time they spend in jail if it is related to union work.

Staffers at the National Education Association, the union that represents about 3 million American educators and school employees, are entitled to their standard wage rate during their incarceration, according to a copy of their contract first reported by The 74 Million.

“Some union staffers can receive incarceration pay ‘for reasons stemming from actions taken by him/her in the scope of his/her Association employment.’ The NEA contract specifies that this will be at the regular hourly rate for all time spent in jail,” the website reports.

The National Education Association Staff Organization represents 369 staff members employed by the union and takes in $600,000 in dues and fees each year – a drop in the bucket compared with the NEA’s $387 million revenue in 2016.

Neither the NEA nor the staffers’ union responded to request for comment about the provision or whether it has been invoked by union employees in the past…

Fox News Shitcans Leftist Nutbag Bob Beckel – The Hill

Fox News fired former Democratic strategist Bob Beckel Friday for allegedly making an inappropriate remark to an African-American employee, The Hill has confirmed.

“HR was informed of the incident on Tuesday evening and did a thorough investigation within 48 hours,” a source familar with the matter tells The Hill. “The network came to a decision that Bob needed to be terminated early this morning.”

Beckel was co-host of “The Five,” a roundtable opinion program which recently moved from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. amid the scheduling shake-up following host Bill O’Reilly’s firing over sexual harassment allegations.

It’s not clear what the alleged remark was, but Fox said in a statement to Variety that Beckel’s words were “insensitive.”

In 2014, Beckel apologized for making a racist slur against Asians on air.

Beckel’s firing comes as Fox faces a racial discrimination lawsuit from African-American employees…

Former U.S. Congressman Anthony Weiner wept on Friday as he pleaded guilty in federal court to sending sexually explicit messages to a teenage girl, ending an investigation into a “sexting” scandal that played a role in last year’s U.S. presidential election.

Professor Receives Over $200,000 To Study ‘Microaggressions’ – Daily Caller

The National Science Foundation awarded a professor over $200,000 to research microaggressions. Specifically, her research seeks to identify how microagressions keep racial minorities from comprising a larger chunk of science, technology, engineering and mathematics jobs, and it seeks ways to improve minority representation in these fields.

Mary Atwater, a science and mathematics education professor at the University of Georgia, received $229,061 to study microaggressions and their implications, according to a statement the university released Monday.

“This grant can have an impact on the number of African-American and Latino faculty members we have in science education,” said Atwater in the university’s statement.

A “microaggression” is “a comment or action that subtly and often unconsciously or unintentionally expresses a prejudiced attitude toward a member of a marginalized group (such as a racial minority),” as defined by Merriam-Webster. For example, asking a person their ethnic background would be a microagression…

More Than 7 Million Voter Registrations Are Duplicated In Multiple States – Washington Free Beacon

More than 7 million voter registrations appear to be registered in two states simultaneously, according to data obtained by the Washington Free Beacon. The new voter data was gathered from the Kansas-run interstate voter registration crosscheck program, which is used to identify “possible duplicate registrations among states.”

The program began in December 2005 and conducted its first crosscheck in 2006. It is administered by the office of Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, who was tapped recently to help lead President Trump’s voter fraud commission.

The newest data is from crosschecks of voter registrations across 28 states that participate in the program. At least 7.2 million registrations appeared in two states at once, according to the data.

Georgia (660,708), North Carolina (561,811), and Illinois (542,065) lead the 28 states studied in potential duplicated voter registrations across state lines. The study shows that more than 916,000 people appear to be registered multiple times within their state of residence…

Julian Assange Rape Charges Dropped By Swedish Authorities – Fox News

Assange took refuge in Ecuador’s Embassy in London in 2012 to escape extradition to Sweden to answer questions about sex-crime accusations from two women. He has been there ever since, claiming officials could ultimately extradite him to the United States.

Friday’s announcement meant Assange no longer was under any investigation in Sweden. However, British police said Assange was still wanted in the U.K. for jumping bail – so he could still face arrest if he leaves the Ecuadorean Embassy…

Austrian Burqa Ban Passed Into Law – Breitbart

Austria has passed into law a ban on wearing full-face Islamic veils, such as the burqa and the niqab, in public. Violators face fines when the legislation comes into effect in October.

The law is part of an integration package agreed upon by the coalition government, comprised of the Austrian People’s Party (ضVP) and the Social Democratic Party of Austria (SPض), after initial resistance by the socialists, Die Welt reports.

The integration package will also prohibit the public distribution of the Quran after a radical Islamist group called “The True Religion” used the handing out of books as a front to recruit new members. The group was ultimately banned in Germany after being raided by police and accused of spreading hatred.

When the law comes into effect in October, the penalty for anyone caught wearing the burqa or niqab will be a fine of roughly 150 euros. Much of the anti-Islamisation aspects of the package were proposed and championed by the new leader of the conservative ضVP and Austrian Foreign Minister Sebastian Kurz…

FCC To Begin Reversing Obama Regime’s Net Neutrality Rules – Washington Free Beacon

The Obama-era Title II rules classified Internet service providers as utilities, instead of information services, for the first time in history. The rules subjected ISPs to broad government regulation and rules for how companies can manage traffic over their own networks.

Flashback: Obama Broke At Least 78 Laws As President – Truth Division

The list is might long, and is a striking record of Obama’s real legacy – the one the media pundits and Democrats will not tell you about:

1) Illegally armed Mexican drug cartels and ISIS militants

In Operation Fast and Furious, the Obama administration facilitated the sale of thousands of guns to Mexican drug cartels and stopped tracking those weapons once they crossed the border so the administration could later blame the Second Amendment.

“The Department of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives apparently ordered one of its own agents to purchase firearms with taxpayer money, and sell them directly to a Mexican drug cartel,” the New York Post reported. “Let that sink in: After months of pretending that ‘Fast and Furious’ was a botched surveillance operation of illegal gun-running spearheaded by the ATF and the US attorney’s office in Phoenix, it turns out that the government itself was selling guns to the bad guys.”…

Immigration arrests climbed yet again in April as federal agents continued to track down both criminal and non-criminal aliens in far greater numbers over the first 100 days of the Trump administration than they did under former President Obama a year ago.

ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) deportation officers administratively arrested 41,318 illegal aliens on civil immigration charges between Jan. 22 and April 29, according to agency data released Wednesday.

Lies, Damned Lies, Statistics, and Climate Change Predictions

But, of course folks like William teach should not point out the many lies of the Cult of Climate Change, because the science is, well, you know

Isn’t funny how the Doomy Goal Posts Of Doom are constantly moved? Now we have the World Economic Forum, a hotbed of Warmists and extreme Socialists who love to redistribute Other People’s money making a prognostication

The Arctic is now expected to be ice-free by 2040

The last piece of summer sea-ice in the Arctic is expected to melt away in just 23 years, three decades earlier than previously expected.

Scientists now believe that the summer of 2040 will see the end of the frozen north pole after a rapid shrinking of the ice coverage in recent years, according to a report from the Arctic Council.

Now this dire prognostication might sound scary, until you consider how many other dire predictions have proven as accurate as a blind archer with no hands

Seriously, they just can’t help themselves with their prognostications. And, let’s see, from Watts Up With That?

  • 101. June 2008, Ted Alvarez, Backpacker Magazine Blogs: “you could potentially sail, kayak, or even swim to the North Pole by the end of the summer. Climate scientists say that the Arctic ice…is currently on track to melt sometime in 2008.”
  • 106. June 8, 1972, Christian Science Monitor: “Arctic specialist Bernt Balchen says a general warming trend over the North Pole is melting the polar ice cap and may produce an ice-free Arctic Ocean by the year 2000.”
  • 6. “In summer under certain conditions the scientists reckon with a complete melting of the Arctic sea ice. For Europe we expect an increase in drier and warmer summers. Winters on the other hand will be warmer and wetter.” Erich Roeckner, Max Planck Institute, Hamburg, 29 Sept 2005.

And then you had the prediction that 2016 would be ice-free. And next year or the year after (2017 or 2018). And so many more, including Gore’s prediction which failed.

Their record is pathetic. But it is their agenda-driven propaganda that is most disturbing. No matter what the facts are, no matter how often they are wrong, they just keep bleating out new doomsday scenarios. And, when challenged, they rant about the science being settled. No, the science is not settled. But, the real motives behind the Cult of Climate Change are, and about that 97% of scientists line….
