Obama Plummets To Number 48 On Forbes’ ‘Most Powerful People In The World’ List – IJR
.

.
After two terms in office, President Obama will soon no longer reside at the White House.

With Trump coming to take his place, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue is going to get an extreme-home makeover. In fact, there might be so much change and repeal, Obama’s two milestones: The Patient Affordable Care Act and the Iran nuclear deal may end up in the trash bin of history.

Forbes appears to already see Obama’s influence, legacy, and power waning at an extreme pace.

In 2015, Obama was listed as the third most powerful person in the world, via Forbes’s annual list. Back then, the publication wrote, in part:

U.S. President Barack Obama fell one spot on this year’s list to #3. There’s no doubt that the United States remains the world’s greatest economic, cultural, diplomatic, technological and military power…

Beijing Issues Red Alert Over Severe Air Pollution – Your News Wire

A red alert for air pollution has been issued in the Chinese capital for the first time this year as choking smog is expected to cover the city and surrounding areas in north China during the next five days.

The red alert, the highest in the color-coded warning system, will come into force at 08:00 p.m. local time on Friday.

Private cars will be ordered off the road, with an odd-even number plate system in force, according to a notice posted on the official website of the Beijing municipal government.

Press TV reports:

According to a notice posted on the official website of Beijing’s municipal government on Monday, construction sites have also been ordered to close and further restrictions have been imposed on the production of some industrial plants and enterprises, as the hazardous pollution is expected to linger on the capital for the next five days.

“Enterprises and public institutions can adjust office time or ask employees to telecommute. Kindergartens, primary and middle schools can work on flexible teaching schedules or close,” the notice added.

According to an emergency response program adopted by Beijing in 2013 to curb air pollution, a red alert is issued when severe smog is estimated to last over 72 hours. Beijing put out its first ever red alert on December last year, when it was engulfed by a thick blanket of choking and toxic smog.

In recent years, China has seen extremely high levels of air pollution, particularly in the northeast, the industrial heartland of the country…

Obamacare Tax Subsidies To Increase By $9.8 Billion Due To Premium Hikes – Washington Free Beacon
.

.
Taxpayers will spend $9.8 billion more on Obamacare subsidies next year than this year due to double-digit increases in premiums, according to a report from the Center for Health and Economy.

The Obama administration announced in October that Obamacare premiums were set to increase by double digits, increasing at a faster rate than they have in the past.

“For the median HealthCare.gov consumer, the benchmark second-lowest silver plan premium is increasing by 16 percent this year, before taking into account the effects of financial assistance,” the administration said. According to the center, the silver benchmark plan premiums will increase by 22 percent.

The administration rarely admits that taxpayer subsidies are increasing to cover rising costs, although they often tout those subsidies for protecting Obamacare customers from higher premiums…

Facebook To Use Leftist ‘Fact Checkers’ To Label Certain Posts ‘Fake News’ – Breitbart

Facebook has announced it will introduce warning labels on stories they deem to be “fake news,” with the help of partisan “fact checking” organisations such as Snopes and PolitiFact.

Stories deemed to be false will now be “flagged” by Facebook, with an accompanying red label claiming the story is “disputed by 3rd Party Fact-Checkers.”

Users will then have the option to “learn why this is disputed” to receive an explanation as to why Facebook believes the story is false.

“We’ll use the reports from our community, along with other signals, to send stories to these organizations,” Facebook VP Adam Mosseri wrote in the Facebook news blog. “If the fact checking organizations identify a story as fake, it will get flagged as disputed and there will be a link to the corresponding article explaining why.”

Mossieri insists that the company will not prohibit users from posting anything deemed “fake,” but “you will see a warning that the story has been disputed as you share.”

Furthermore, Facebook will prohibit paid promotion of stories that have been marked as disputed.

In the announcement, Facebook confirmed that it will be working alongside organizations that are signatories of “Poynter’s International Fact Checking Code of Principles.”

Business Insider reports that these organisations will include the likes of Snopes, ABC, Politifact, and FactCheck.org, all of which have records of left-wing partisanship — particularly throughout the 2016 election…

Swearing BLM Racists Take Over Kansas School Board Meeting – American Mirror
.

.
A loud and angry group of Black Lives Matter protesters forced the Lawrence School Board in Kansas to shut down its meeting early on Monday by screaming and cursing at board members about an allegedly racist teacher.

The disruption started when a woman approached the board to set her own agenda for the meeting, telling board members “ya’ll ain’t gone give me no blank stares tonight cause I’m pissed the hell off for my kids and all the rest of the kids, and ya’ll gone answer some questions tonight,” according to a video posted by The Lawrence Journal-World.

Several other protesters who claimed to be members of Black Lives Matter-LFK stood among the crowd as the woman berated the board.

“If any of ya’ll here for a certain reason, you gots to go, cause we gone talk tonight, we gone get resolutions tonight, and that’s why we’re here,” the woman lectured the room…

Donald Trump Taps General Keith Kellogg For National Security Council Post – The Hill

President-elect Donald Trump has appointed retired Lt. Gen. Keith Kellogg as National Security Council (NSC) chief of staff, expanding the reach of generals in the new administration.

Kellogg advised Trump throughout his presidential campaign and has been floated as a possible member of the incoming White House.

He’ll be one of the president-elect’s top advisers on national security issues, serving under retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, who will lead the NSC, and K.T. McFarland, a former Fox News host and White House aide who will serve as Flynn’s deputy.

“I am honored to not only be a part of this historic administration but also to be serving with General Flynn and KT McFarland, who are widely respected as some of the most experienced and strategic national security minds,” Kellogg said in a statement.

Kellogg spent more than 30 years in the Army, serving late in his career in a key post in the 2003 invasion of Iraq. He also worked in the Joint Chiefs of Staff office before his retirement and later went on to work for defense contractors.

He’s the fourth retired general to join the administration. Trump selected Flynn to lead the NSC, as well as Gen. James Mattis to lead the Defense Department and Gen. John Kelly to run the Department of Homeland Security.

The announcement Thursday came along with the appointment of Monica Crowley to serve as the NSC’s senior director of strategic communications…

After 5 Years Of Scrutiny, Sheriff Arpaio’s Investigators Conclude Obama’s Birth Certificate Is A Forgery – Law Newz
.

.
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio held a press conference in Phoenix on Thursday afternoon where he announced, after a five year investigation, his detectives have determined that the birth certificate presented by President Barack Obama was a fraudulently created document which has been represented as an official copy of the original certificate. Arpaio said his investigators have been working this case since August 2011 after the Tea Party asked him to investigate.

“We had to follow the evidence,” Arpaio said during the press briefing. The lead investigator, Mike Zullo, presented a video which claimed to show the Obama birth certificate shows “9 points of forgery.” He claims it was copied from another document. He says they consulted several experts from all across the world including in Italy…

Activists Hold Unintentionally Hilarious ‘Funerals’ For Dead Turkeys At Whole Foods – IJR

Activists apparently staged “funerals” for dead turkeys at grocery stores across the country, from New York City to Oakland during the Thanksgiving month of November.

The group ‘Direct Action Everywhere’ on Friday posted a video on its Facebook page showing the demonstrations. The video is accompanied by a dramatic soundtrack that sounds like a mix between Halloween and something from an M. Night Shyamalan film — you know, the music that comes the moment some dark truth is finally revealed.

Some of the vegan activists are seen taking out whole turkeys and placing them on blankets on the floor for some reason.

Others were more creative and set up a cardboard fixture that at least somewhat resembled a coffin for the little guys. The “coffin” was then lined with more dead turkey bodies.

Activists in San Francisco even staged a “die-in” and pretended to be dead while holding photos of turkeys.

It’s not clear exactly when all of these protests took place, but they appear to be centered around the Thanksgiving holiday. And they will not forget the atrocity.

The comments in response to the video were seriously brutal.

They could feed the poor instead. Damn vegans, you can’t do anything, animals will keep slaughter for humans. Even the drugs you use for your therapies are tested on animals. Gtfo vegannazis.

“Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha, oh dear,” another person wrote. “Unintentionally amusing. Are they gonna pay for those?”…

Faithless Elector From Texas Lied About Being A 9/11 First Responder – Daily Caller
.

.
The Texas elector who cited his experience as a 9/11 first responder for his refusal to vote for President-elect Donald Trump appears to have fabricated the entire thing, according to an investigation by local news outlet WFAA.

Chris Suprun said he responded with the Manassas Park, Virginia fire department after the third plane hit the Pentagon during the September 11 terrorist attacks. But WFAA’s investigation reveals that the department wasn’t among those responding to the attacks. What’s more, Suprun didn’t even join the fire department until October, 2001 – a month after after the attacks.

“Fifteen years ago, as a firefighter, I was part of the response to the Sept. 11 attacks against our nation,” Suprun wrote in a New York Times op-ed announcing he would not be casting his vote for Trump when the electors meet on Dec. 19…

President Asshat Allows 4,200 Bald Eagles To Die For Green Energy – Daily Caller

The Obama administration will allow wind turbine operators to kill 4,200 federally protected bald eagles before facing any penalties.

Under a finalized rule, wind turbine owners will not face a penalty if they kill or injure up to 4,200 bald eagles – that’s almost four times the current limit.

“We can’t eliminate human-caused eagle loss any more than we can eliminate risk from any other facet of modern life,” Dan Ashe, director of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, told The Associated Press.

Bald eagles are not an endangered species, but are protected under the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act and the Migratory Bird Treaty Act. These laws prohibit killing, selling or otherwise harming them without a permit.

Wind farms kill an estimated 573,000 birds each year and 888,000 bats, according to a 2013 peer-reviewed study published in Wildlife Society Bulletin. Wind farms are projected to kill 1.4 million birds annually by 2030.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service estimates there are about 143,000 bald eagles in the U.S. and 40,000 golden eagles. Despite the deaths of numerous birds, wind power has generally been well-received by environmentalists.

Wind farms owned by Duke Energy were forced to pay a $1 million fine for killing 14 eagles and 149 other birds in 2013. An Oregon-based wind power company was fined $2.5 million for killing 38 eagles in 2015. Modern wind turbines create a powerful vortex which literally sucks eagles and other birds into them…

Obese Idiot Wraps Himself In Firecrackers And Lights The Fuse; Instantly Regrets It – Thuglife Videos

This dude must surely be up for a Darwin Award this year. Zach from the YouTube channel Too Stupid To Die is a Helluva guy. Looking like Super Mario (if he ate Luigi), the guy’s nuts, quite frankly.

Well, you’d have to be pretty crazy to run a channel like Too Stupid To Die. It’s a Jackass kind of thing. And for his latest stunt? He decided to create a ‘suicide vest‘. Made of firecrackers.

And as you can see from the photo, he lights the fuse and it goes off exactly as planned. But why you’d plan that, no one quite knows.

1,000 Muslims Block London Streets Chanting Allahu Akbar To Demand Islamic Caliphate – Daily Express

More than 1,000 Muslims took to the streets of London last night chanting Allahu Akbar and demanding an Islamic caliphate.

The street outside the empty embassy in Belgrave Square, London, was closed off as it filled with protestors and Islamic leaders chanting loudly and calling for America to be punished over Aleppo.

The demonstration became an alternative to an official rally calling for an end to the bloodshed in Syria outside Downing Street.

During the speeches which lasted almost an hour the crowd chanted Allahu Akbar ‘God is the greatest’ and cheered for those calling for a global caliphate.

A poet invited to talk shouted: “We need a Caliph who will clean up these streets. Who will smack up armies and who will back beef [fighting].

“Backhand your missiles back to your land, that’s the plan.

“World domination at hand. We can expand and take out these fools.”

The crowd largely segregated into men and women with many of the women wearing Islamic clothing.

According to website Breitbart one protester appeared to be waving a Taliban flag, while others were handed placards made by Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain, which calls for the reestablishment of a caliphate.

It is unclear who organised the demonstration.

Breitbart also reported that Haitham al-Hadad, a Saudi-trained Salafist Muslim, congratulated the crowd on amassing so quickly and in such large numbers saying: “This gathering today – in a matter of a few hours, hundreds of brothers and sisters coming together – is a sign of positivity and revival, and a sign of victory for Allah.”…

Netherlands Restaurant Offers ‘My Little Pony’ Burger Made From Real Horse Meat – Daily Mail

A restaurant in the Netherlands has become famous for serving up a dish called the ‘My Little Pony Burger’ – but it’s not just a creative name.

The burger is actually made from real horse meat.

Dutch restaurant Food Guerilla gets the strange delicacies from a quirky food truck called Keuken van het Ongewenst Dier – or the ‘Unwanted Animal Kitchen’.

The patties are all made from the butchered meat of ageing ponies at nearby amusement park Slagharen, Vice Munchies reported.

In fact, the food truck’s entire identity centres around selling products made from species that are ‘not socially acceptable’ to eat.

The idea is to avoid waste and when older horses are deemed useless and put down, their meat is typically not utilised.

Despite the environmental upsides, progressive chef Babbe Hengeveld, who owns Food Guerilla, is aware that horse meat burgers might seem a little unconventional.

‘They don’t sell well because people do feel bad about the idea of eating horse,’ Hengeveld told Vice.

‘I just need to throw away the meat sometimes. For people to understand, you really have to explain to them clearly about the unwanted ponies and horse meat.

‘When I’m cooking in the kitchen, I don’t always have time for this.’

There are foodies – and therefore in-the-know, savvy restaurants – that have proved to be keen on the burgers. The interest just isn’t always motivated by the prospect of reducing waste…

Entire Bunker Hill, Indiana Police Force Resigns Over Illegal And Unethical Behavior By Town Council – Washington Times
.

.
An Indiana town has been left without a police department after all five members of its law enforcement agency resigned this week in protest, alleging mismanagement and unethical requests made by local lawmakers.

In his resignation letter, Bunker Hill Town Marshal Michael Thomison wrote that town council members had asked him to “be involved in illegal, unethical and immoral things over time,” the Kokomo Tribune reported. The allegations include being asked to conduct criminal background checks on other council members and requesting access to confidential information.

“I have had to educate them on the things they were asking from me and explained that I would not take part in any of these actions,” Marshal Thomison said.

The marshal submitted his resignation on Monday along with letters from his four unpaid reserve deputies…

Georgia Secretary Of State Confirms 10 Cyber Attacks Traced To Obama DHS – WSB

The Georgia Secretary of State’s Office now confirms 10 separate cyberattacks on its network were all traced back to U.S. Department of Homeland Security addresses.

In an exclusive interview, a visibly frustrated Secretary of State Brian Kemp confirmed the attacks of different levels on his agency’s network over the last 10 months. He says they all traced back to DHS internet provider addresses.

“We’re being told something that they think they have it figured out, yet nobody’s really showed us how this happened,” Kemp said. “We need to know.”

Kemp told Channel 2’s Aaron Diamant his office’s cybersecurity vendor discovered the additional so-called vulnerability scans to his network’s firewall after a massive mid-November cyberattack triggered an internal investigation.

The Secretary of State’s Office manages Georgia’s elections, and most concerning for Kemp about the newly discovered scans is the timing.

The first one happened on Feb. 2, the day after Georgia’s voter registration deadline. The next one took place just days before the SEC primary. Another occurred in May, the day before the general primary, and then two more took place in November, the day before and the day of the presidential election.

“It makes you wonder if somebody was trying to prove a point,” Kemp said.

Last week, the DHS confirmed the large Nov. 15 attack traced back to a U.S. Customs and Border Protection internet gateway. But Kemp says the DHS’ story about its source keeps changing…

Ex-British Ambssador Who Is Now Wikileaks Operative Says Democrat Whistleblowers Gave Him Clinton Emails – Daily Mail

A Wikileaks envoy today claims he personally received Clinton campaign emails in Washington D.C. after they were leaked by ‘disgusted’ whisteblowers – and not hacked by Russia.

Craig Murray, former British ambassador to Uzbekistan and a close associate of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, told Dailymail.com that he flew to Washington, D.C. for a clandestine hand-off with one of the email sources in September.

‘Neither of [the leaks] came from the Russians,’ said Murray in an interview with Dailymail.com on Tuesday. ‘The source had legal access to the information. The documents came from inside leaks, not hacks.’

His account contradicts directly the version of how thousands of Democratic emails were published before the election being advanced by U.S. intelligence…

Hate Hoax: NYC Muslim Arrested After Claiming Attack By Trump Fans – Breitbart

A Muslim woman who drummed up mainstream media hysteria claiming she was attacked on a New York City subway by President-elect Donald Trump supporters is now under arrest for fabricating the hate crime and filing a false police report.

Yasmin Seweid, 18, has been charged by the New York City Police Department (NYPD) for filing a fraudulent police report after she claimed Trump supporters called her a terrorist and attempted to pull her hijab off her head, the New York Daily News reported.

A source with the New York Daily News said Seweid stood by her story until NYPD continued to press her on the matter after finding no evidence that the attack occurred. Seweid admitted that she had fabricated the story, claiming she had family problems.

“This isn’t something we normally like to do but she had numerous opportunities to admit nothing happened and she kept sticking by her story,” the source told the New York Daily News on charged Seweid for filing a fake police report.

“We dedicated a lot of resources to this – and don’t get me wrong, this is what we do – but we had guys going back and forth, looking for video and witnesses,” the source continued. “And we couldn’t find anything.”

Seweid claimed in a Facebook post that Trump supporters yelled “Look, it’s a fucking terrorist,” and “Get the hell out of the country” and “You don’t belong here!”

Seweid also blamed New York City residents for the phony attack, falsely claiming “It breaks my heart that so many individuals chose to be bystanders while watching me get harassed verbally and physically by these disgusting pigs.”…
