President Trump To Appoint 10 New Federal Judges – Daily Caller
.

.
President Trump will announce 10 nominees to the lower federal courts Monday. A White House official confirmed to The New York Times the 10 nominees will be the first in what will be monthly waves of judicial appointments.

In the wake of Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation, over 120 federal judge vacancies still need to be filled. Republicans no longer need to factor in filibusters that could hamper any of the incoming nominees, given the last two rule changes that happened in the Senate over the last four years.

White House counsel Donald McGahn told The New York Times the appointments were a vindication of a pledge President Trump made during the campaign “to appoint strong and principled jurists to the federal bench who will enforce the Constitution’s limits on federal power and protect the liberty of all Americans.”…

Middle-Schooler Suspended For ‘Liking’ Picture Of Toy Gun On Instagram – Federalist Papers

An Ohio seventh-grader was suspended from school for ten days for “liking” a picture of a toy gun on social media.

Zachary Bowlin, a student at Edgewood Middle School in Trenton received the suspension after he “liked” the photo of an airsoft gun on Instagram. The caption for the gun read “ready.”

“I don’t think I did anything wrong,” Zachary said. “[The] next morning, they called me down and, like, patted me down and checked me for weapons. Then, they told me I was getting expelled or suspended or whatever.”

The note the school sent home to Zachary’s parents said that the official cause of his suspension was “liking a post on social media that indicated potential school violence.”

“I was livid,” Zachary’s father Martin Bowlin told Fox 19. “He never shared, he never commented, never made a threatening post… [he] just liked it.”

Airsoft is something that Zachary and his friends enjoy playing, yet while the school eventually withdrew the suspension, they stood by their idiotic decision…

Texas Governor Abbott Signs Law Banning Sanctuary Cities – The Hill
.

.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) signed a controversial bill into law on Sunday that bans “sanctuary cities” and allows police officers to ask the immigration status of every individual they detain.

“Citizens expect law enforcement officers to enforce the law, and citizens deserve law breakers to face legal consequences,” Abbot said before signing the law. “Texans expect us to keep them safe, and that is exactly what we are going to do.”

The Texas bill, known as S.B. 4, will prohibit cities from declaring themselves sanctuary cities and refusing to cooperate with federal officials on immigration enforcement. It also directs local law enforcement officials to enforce immigration laws alongside their regular duties…

Federal Judge Declares Constitution Void, Threatens Civil Defendant With Death – Zero Hedge

Most Americans believe that we have a reasonably fair justice system with scholarly judges at the helm. Well, how about a federal judge who suspends the Constitution, confiscates all of a litigant’s assets, orders him not to hire defense counsel, and pronounces his orders enforceable by death?

That’s exactly what federal Judge Royal Furgeson did to Internet pioneer Jeff Baron, in a case that, New York lawyer David Relkin says is “the most outrageous denial of a person’s basic constitutional and human rights in this Country since the abolition of slavery.”

In the Texas case, Judge Furgeson “sentenced” Baron to an unprecedented “human receivership” to enable the judge’s lawyers to loot Baron’s Juvenile Diabetes Research Trust.

His offense? Baron was accused of not paying his lawyers enough money – “charges” that were later proven to be completely fabricated.

The decision is historic: a human being has not been placed in a receivership since slavery ended in 1865…

This Pre-Existing Conditions Business Is A Total Scam – Herman Cain
.

.
The vote in the House was close, but the American Health Care Act passed 217-213. Now it’s on to the Senate to see if we can get a bill that a) can pass; and b) can be worked out with the House’s version in conference committee.

It won’t be easy, but it can be done – and I think Republicans understand their differences on these issues aren’t big enough to warrant letting the failing ObamaCare stand.

One thing that will help a lot is if people realize what a bunch of bullfeathers they’re being fed with this whole business about pre-existing conditions. ObamaCare requires that people with pre-existing conditions who don’t already have insurance be allowed to sign up for it, and be charged premiums no different than those who are totally healthy…

Woman Ends Up With Broken Legs After Muslim Migrant Throws Her Out Of Window For Refusing To Have Sex With Him – Daily Mail

An asylum seeker in Germany is accused of throwing a woman out of a window and breaking both her legs after she refused to have sex with him.

Dawit A., 34, allegedly drank beer and vodka at a refugee centre in Bensheim before threatening a woman identified only as Tirhas, 26, with a broken bottle. She claims he ordered her to lie down and asked if she had ‘another man’ before hurling her out of a window where she fell 15ft on to the concrete below.

On trial at Frankfurt State Court, prosecutors said Tirhas visited Dawit in his room in July last year with another couple. Lawyers said the men drank while the women cooked and later made coffee.

But at some point during the gathering Dawit A. became violent, the prosecution allege, throwing the apartment keys out of the window. The prosecution said he was furious because he wanted sex and she refused him…

France Votes Overwhelmingly To Remain A Muslim-Infested, EU Puppet State – Bloomberg
.

.
Emmanuel Macron beat the anti-euro nationalist Marine Le Pen in France’s presidential election.

Macron, a 39-year-old centrist, leads Le Pen by about 65 percent to 35 percent, according to the estimates of four separate pollsters. The firms sampled real votes as they were being counted and weighted their results to reflect the composition of the French electorate. Their projections were all within 1 percentage point.

Le Pen conceded defeat in a televised statement.

The victory will prove a relief for markets after a campaign that saw bond yields fluctuate in tandem with the fortunes of Le Pen’s bid to take France out of the euro. A pro-European globalist, Macron will have to unite a divided France after one of the most bitter and turbulent elections of modern times…

Report: ICE Has 27 Different Databases For Visa Overstays, Catches Only 0.4% – Washington Free Beacon

Immigrations and Custom Enforcement cannot account for all visa overstays due to inefficiencies in the agency, according to a new report. ICE arrested just 0.4 percent of visa overstays it could account for, according to an audit by the inspector general.

The agency has 27 different databases used to investigate and track immigrants who remain in the country past the deadline issued on their temporary visas. The lack of a cohesive system has “produced numerous inefficiencies,” making ICE ineffective at catching visa overstays who may pose security risks, according to the audit.

“Department of Homeland Security IT systems did not effectively support ICE visa tracking operations,” the inspector general said. “ICE personnel responsible for investigating in-country visa overstays pieced together information from dozens of systems and databases, some of which were not integrated and did not electronically share information. Despite previous efforts to improve information sharing, the DHS Chief Information Officer (CIO) did not provide the oversight and centralized management needed to address these issues.”…

Irish Beach That Washed Away 33 Years Ago Returns Overnight Due To Freak Tide – Daily Mail
.

.
Villagers are delighted after an entire beach that was washed away 33 years ago has reappeared – virtually overnight thanks to a freak tide. The stunning beach near the Irish village of Dooagh on Achill Island vanished in Spring storms of 1984 after waves washed away all the sand.

With nothing more than rock pools left behind, almost all the villages’ hotels, guesthouses and cafes shut down. But miraculously thanks to a freak tide, hundreds of thousands of tonnes of sand were dumped on the beach over ten days in April, re-creating a stunning 300m long beach. And the picturesque stretch is still in place, with locals hoping it sticks around long enough for the beach to be given blue-flag status during next year’s inspection…

FDA Approves First New Drug To Treat ALS In 20 Years – WRAL

The Food and Drug Administration said Friday it had approved the first new drug in 20 years to treat the paralyzing disease ALS.

The drug is not a cure but can slow down the inexorable worsening of the disease, which gradually paralyzes patients completely. It’s always fatal and there is no cure.

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), sometimes known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, is rare and affects between 12,000 and 15,000 Americans, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The new drug, called Radicava or edaravone, was developed in Japan, where it was approved to treat strokes.

“After learning about the use of edaravone to treat ALS in Japan, we rapidly engaged with the drug developer about filing a marketing application in the United States,” said Dr. Eric Bastings, deputy director of the Division of Neurology Products at FDA.

“This is the first new treatment approved by the FDA for ALS in many years, and we are pleased that people with ALS will now have an additional option,” he said…

French, Pro-Migrant Leftists Asked To House Refugees By Reporter; All Refuse – Mad World News
.

After growing sick of listening to bleeding heart liberals declare that refugees should be allowed into his country, a man decided to see just how dedicated they were to their cause. So, he set out with a camera to find a few and asked them if they would each let a refugee move in with them. Their shocking, immediate response was caught on video that’s quickly gaining traction on social media for good reason.

Leftists all across the world have fought tooth and nail to help people fleeing from the Middle East and other Muslim controlled countries in Africa. In fact, they go so far as to argue that refugees are entitled to live in more civilized, Western nations, but to say that not everyone agrees is a bit of an understatement…

House Oversight Committee To Investigate Obama’s Iran Deal – Politico

Citing a Politico investigation, Republican leaders of the House oversight committee said Friday they have launched a sweeping investigation into whether the Obama administration, in trying to win support for a nuclear deal and prisoner swap with Tehran last year, undermined an ambitious U.S. counterproliferation effort to thwart Iranian weapons trafficking networks.

Also in response to the Politico investigation, 13 Republican senators have demanded answers about whether the Obama administration jeopardized U.S. national security as a result of its protracted top-secret negotiations with Tehran, and then misled the American public when disclosing the terms of the two deals in January 2016.

The House and Senate lawmakers cited various portions of an April 24 report by Politico that found that the Obama administration, through actions in some cases and inaction in others, significantly hampered a much-touted federal law enforcement effort known as the National Counterproliferation Initiative at a time when it was making unprecedented headway in thwarting Iran’s illicit weapons proliferation activities…

Manufacturing CEO Says He’s Investing $2 Billion In U.S. Because Of ‘Confidence In Trump’ – Washington Free Beacon
.

.
Australian billionaire and manufacturing CEO Anthony Pratt said Friday on Fox Business that he is investing $2 billion in the United States because he has “confidence” in President Trump.

“We have enormous confidence in President Trump. He’s doing a wonderful job, and we think he will continue to do a great job,” Pratt said. “He’s reducing unemployment. As we saw today, the job figures show unemployment is the lowest it’s been for a decade, and he’s supporting manufacturing.”

“And that’s why we are doubling down on our investment in the United States, creating 7,000 high-paying manufacturing jobs, mainly in the Midwest,” Pratt added.

The latest jobs report was released Friday and showed the U.S. created 211,000 jobs in April, leading the unemployment rate to fall to its lowest level in a decade, 4.4 percent…

Veterans Memorial In Minnesota To Include Satanic Monument – Minneapolis Star Tribune

A veterans’ memorial park in Minnesota will soon include a satanic monument among its tributes, as an unintended consequence of a free speech debate.

The city of Belle Plaine, about 45 miles southwest of Minneapolis, is allowing the monument in its Veterans Memorial Park after the Freedom from Religion Foundation threatened to sue over another statue that features a soldier praying over a grave marked with a cross. The cross was removed once the issue was raised, but more than 100 residents rallied to put it back.

City Administrator Mike Votca said the city knew it had to include everyone, so it created a free speech area for all – as long as the tributes honor veterans.

The memorial from the Satanic Temple in Salem, Massachusetts, features a black cube with inverted pentagrams, a soldier’s helmet and a plaque honoring veterans who died in battle.

Doug Mesner is founder of the Satanic Temple and its nonprofit group Reason Alliance. He said the group doesn’t worship Satan, but is a non-theistic, religious group…

Iowa Adopts Voter-ID Law – Breitbart
.

.
Iowa on Friday became the latest state to enact a voter-ID law to protect the integrity of its election process, and the state’s elected leaders are already bracing for a legal challenge seeking to invalidate that law before it can go into effect next year.

Gov. Terry Branstad, a Republican who is the longest-serving governor in the nation, signed the legislation into law on May 5. The bill, House File 516, specifies voter-identification requirements to cast a ballot in elections, shortens the time period for early voting, and updates the state’s absentee-voting procedures.

Acceptable forms of identification include passports, driver’s licenses, non-operator IDs, and military IDs. The state will also issue free voter identification cards to provide a form of ID for voters who do not have any of the other documents, ensuring that no one may be excluded because they do not fit into any other category…

Defying New Jersey’s Top Judge, ICE Continues Courthouse Arrests Of Illegals – NJ

New Jersey’s top judge asked Trump administration officials last month to stop arresting immigrants inside courthouses.

Now he has their response: No way.

As recently as last week, armed Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents in plainclothes arrested an undocumented immigrant at the Middlesex County courthouse, Sheriff Mildred Scott told WNYC. The man was free to go – except right then, immigration agents stepped in and detained him on an undisclosed charge.

That arrest came a week after Supreme Court Chief Justice Stuart Rabner pleaded with Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly to add courthouses to a list of “sensitive locations” that ICE avoids. Rabner wrote that “serious consequences” could result if immigrants fear that coming to court could lead to deportation. Rabner argued that witnesses, victims, and defendants may not show up to testify – making everyone less safe…

Man Spends Over $32,000 To Become ‘Trans-Species’ Elf – Breitbart

A 25-year-old cosplay merchandise seller from Argentina has spent over $32,000 in his effort to become a “trans-species” elf. The $32,000 surgery included jaw liposuction, a nose job, hair removal of his entire body, and eye color-changing operations, but his quest is not over yet.

Luis Padron, who allegedly became obsessed with elves and other fantasy beings after being bullied as a child, also spends over $5,000 per month on different “specialist creams, dyes, treatment, and SPF 100 suncream.”

Next on Padron’s list to become a complete elf is surgery to make his ears pointed, the removal of four ribs, a face and eye lift, “hair implants for a heart-shaped hairline and a limb lengthening operation to make him 6ft 5in tall.”…

Austria’s Green Party To Teach Women How To Pee Standing Up – RT

An annual breakfast club organized by Austria’s Green Party in a small town is attracting increased attention after it emerged that the gathering received “theoretical and practical” training in how women can urinate standing up.

The Green Party has been hosting a monthly breakfast meeting for 12 years, where the women of Perchtoldsdorf – a community close to Vienna – could discuss political and social issues.

However, their events hadn’t made the headlines until Saturday’s agenda was announced.

An expert on female pelvic exercises will teach women how to use devices called “Pibella” and “Urinella,” which help women pee in a standing position.

It is also planned to bring the females up to speed with how they can essentially make the devices by themselves.

“Pibella” and the like are set to be used in cases when a female patient can’t get up from a bed in a hospital or at home…

Maryland, Virginia Brace For Massive Obamacare Rate Hikes – Washington Examiner
.

.
Insurance companies that are planning to sell Obamacare plans in two state exchanges next year are requesting double-digit rate increases for premiums, results that are likely to become fodder for the healthcare law’s defenders and its detractors.

In Maryland, insurers requested average rate increases between 58.8 percent and 18.08 percent. In Virginia, insurers have requested rate increases of 30.6 percent on average, according to an early analysis by Charles Gaba, an independent analyst and writer of ACASignups.net.

The rates, which must be approved by a state’s department of insurance, apply only to unsubsidized plans and do not yet indicate a trend. Still, Republicans have in the past used rate increases as justification for their argument that Obamacare is failing and needs their intervention…

Puerto Rico To Close 184 Public Schools Amid Economic Crisis – Los Angeles Times

Puerto Rico will close 184 public schools as part of a broad effort to pull the U.S. territory out of a crippling debt crisis, officials announced Friday.

Roughly 27,000 students – mostly from kindergarten through fourth grade – and 2,700 teachers will be affected by the closures, which are set to take place before next school year.

The U.S. territory is in deep economic crisis. Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rossello said Wednesday that the commonwealth has filed for a type of bankruptcy to help restructure its more than $70-billion in debt after negotiations with multiple creditors failed.

The financial trouble has deepened as many people have left for the U.S. mainland in search of better jobs. Consequently, the population of school children has been in steep decline, making the education system an inviting target for cuts.

Between 2010 and 2015, Puerto Rico closed 150 schools, according to the Associated Press. This new round will be the largest in Puerto Rico’s history…

GOP Members Pull Back Curtain, Describe ‘Hands-On’ President – John Bennett

In the end, the political novice-turned-president out-whipped a longtime vote wrangler.

House Republicans, on their second try this year, found just enough votes to pass a measure to partially repeal and replace President Barack Obama’s 2010 health care law. As they looked for votes, senior members say President Donald Trump got his hand dirty – even giving a little tactical advice hours before the dramatic vote to House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, the chamber’s GOP whip from 2011 to 2014.

“I walked into my office [Wednesday] morning, and they say the president’s calling again,” McCarthy recalled during a Rose Garden ceremony Thursday. “I pick up the phone. I happen to be the majority leader, the former whip. I know my members well.”…
