With 29 Dead So Far In Violent Protests, Venezuela’s Socialist Dictator Decrees: ‘Everyone Must Know How To Dance’ – Breitbart
.

.
As the death toll from weeks of protests in Venezuela continues to grow, dictator Nicolلs Maduro has repeatedly placed emphasis in his television appearances on the importance of dance in society, decreeing on Wednesday that all socialists must know how to dance or immediately learn how.

“The revolutionary youth need to know how to sing, love, and dance to construct a revolution of peace and happiness,” said Maduro, flanked by high-ranking socialist officials. “We must all dance; whoever doesn’t know how to dance needs to learn.”

He particularly chided Vice President of Social Development Elيas Jaua, who allegedly does not know how to dance, and made the officials on stage dance along with him…

Huma Abedin’s Family Under Federal Investigation For Wire Fraud, Securities Fraud And Conspiracy – WorldNetDaily

While Hillary Clinton loyal aide Huma Abedin was reportedly sidelined in the final stretch of the 2016 presidential campaign as a result of Abedin’s husband’s child-porn scandal, she was potentially an even greater liability than known. It turns out Anthony Weiner wasn’t the only family member under investigation.

In fact, the U.S. Justice Department has been actively prosecuting two other Abedin family members – for conspiracy, wire fraud and securities fraud – and she along with the State Department, where she previously worked for Clinton, are mentioned in the federal case, court records show.

Other documents reveal the same allegedly crooked kin solicited Abedin for help at State in a deal that netted more than $1.2 million in federal grants.

These undesirable family connections, revealed here for the first time, raise fresh questions about influence peddling at the State Department under Clinton, who is now reportedly working with Abedin on a political comeback…

Senate Confirms Alexander Acosta As Secretary Of Labor – The Hill
.

.
The Senate confirmed one of the final members of President Trump’s Cabinet, Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta, on Thursday.

Acosta, Trump’s second choice to run the Labor Department, was confirmed Thursday evening by a 60-38 vote, just ahead of the president’s 100th day in office.

The former Republican member of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) takes the helm of the Labor Department at a time when worker tensions are rising across America.

Trump promised to address these issues on the campaign trail, but so far his labor agenda has gotten off to a rocky start. Trump scrambled to find a replacement after his first pick to run the Labor Department, restaurant executive Andrew Puzder, dropped out in February…

Texas House Passes Sanctuary City Ban With Stiff Penalty For Public Officials – Daily Caller

The Texas House of Representatives passed a bill Thursday that places a statewide ban on sanctuary cities and allows state officials to jail police chiefs and sheriffs who refuse to cooperate with federal immigration authorities.

The measure also lets police officers inquire about the immigration status of anyone they detain or arrest including the subjects of traffic stops.

The Republican-controlled House approved the bill in a 3 a.m. vote, 81-64, after almost 15 hours of debate. Democrats and some Republicans had objected to the provision allowing police to ask about legal status, but the the bill eventually passed with the support of the House tea party faction.

Other Republican-led states have considered similar laws, but Texas would be the first in which local police officials could face criminal charges and be removed from office for not assisting federal immigration enforcement efforts, the Associated Press reported…

EU To Demand Britain Pay £292 Million Bill Because Of A ‘Brussels Blunder’ – Daily Express
.

.
Brussels bigwigs will demand Britain pays a £292 million bill to relocate EU agencies out the country due the bloc’s failure to enter a break clause into rental contracts based in the UK.

Theresa May will be asked by EU officials to pay the costs of relocating EU agencies, including the European Medicine Agency (EMA), who will leave Britain on March 2019 – when the UK finally leaves the bloc.

The eye-watering bill includes 20 years of payments for the EU agency for when it relocates out of Britain as dithering Eurocrats failed to insert a break clause in the London rental contract, according to the Times.

A European parliament budget control report found the rental contract for the EU medicine agency based in Canary Wharf does not lapse until 2039…

President Trump Signs Order Creating Accountability Office At VA – Fox News

President Donald Trump on Thursday created an office at the Department of Veterans Affairs to improve accountability and protect whistleblowers, calling it a “bold step forward.”

Trump, who made improving veterans’ care a prominent issue in his presidential campaign, said the Office of Accountability and Whistleblower Protection will make clear “that we will never, ever tolerate substandard care for our great veterans.” VA Secretary David Shulkin said the office will help identify “barriers” that make it difficult for the department to fire or reassign bad managers or employees.

Another function of the office will be to help shield whistleblowers from retaliation.

“With the creation of this office, we are sending a strong message: Those who fail our veterans will be held, for the first time, accountable,” Trump said at the VA before signing an executive order to create the office. “And at the same time, we will reward and retain the many VA employees who do a fantastic job, of which we have many.”…

Trump Eyes Bid To Split Up 9th Circuit Court Amid Sanctuary City, Travel Ban Disputes – Fox News

.
President Trump upped his battle with the federal appeals court potentially standing in the way of his agenda, saying Wednesday he “absolutely” has considered proposals to break up the San Francisco-based 9th Circuit.

Trump made the comments in an interview with The Washington Examiner. His complaints came on the heels of the appeals court earlier this year helping block his controversial “travel ban” and a federal District Court judge in northern California on Tuesday blocking his bid to cut off sanctuary city funding.

That judge, William Orrick, is not on the 9th Circuit bench, but the case could hit that court if appealed.

Trump accused his opponents of “judge shopping,” and told the Examiner they “immediately run to the 9th Circuit.”…

Turkey Arrests Over 1,000 ‘Secret Imams’ Who Allegedly Infiltrated Police Force – Breitbart

“One thousand and nine secret imams have been detained so far in 72 provinces, and the operation is ongoing,” Turkish Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu announced in an Ankara press conference on Wednesday.

By “secret imams,” he meant Gulenists, the followers of self-exiled cleric Fethullah Gulen. The Turkish government blames Gulen, who currently lives in Pennsylvania, for the July coup attempt against President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. The government portrays Gulen’s followers as a vast conspiracy that has infested almost every corner of the Turkish government.

The government refers to them as FETO, which stands for “Gulenist Terrorist Organization.” Gulen’s followers call themselves Hizmet, which means “service,” and insist they are peaceful exponents of a branch of Sufi Islam.

In addition to the huge number of arrests, Turkey’s police force announced that another 9,103 personnel were suspended…

House Committee Seeks Charges For Hillary’s IT Firm – Daily Caller

A House committee is referring the head of a company that managed Hillary Clinton’s private email server to the Justice Department for obstruction of justice and making false statements.

Texas Rep. Lamar Smith, the chairman of the House Science, Space and Technology Committee, issued the referral for Treve Suazo, the CEO of Platte River Networks.

Huge Blasts Near Damascus Airport Blamed On Israeli Airstrike – Times Of Israel

Explosions were heard near Damascus’s airport on Thursday morning, in what some local Arabic-language media reports blamed on an Israeli airstrike.

An unnamed regional intelligence source, quoted by Reuters, said the strike was carried out by Israel and targeted an Iran-supplied Hezbollah arms depot.

The Hezbollah-linked Al-Manar news site also attributed the raid to Israel.

“Al-Manar’s correspondent reported that an explosion struck at dawn on Thursday in fuel tanks and a warehouse near Damascus International Airport and that it was probably the result of an Israeli strike,” the channel said.

It said it caused only material damage.

The head of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights Rami Abdel Rahman said the explosion early Thursday has been heard across the capital, jolting residents awake.

The painting was displayed for weeks before Republicans complained and asked that it be taken down by the Architect of the Capitol. He blamed Republicans for “acts of theft” after GOP lawmakers took it down a few times in protest.

Clay complained on the floor that the painting was removed in an act of “politically motivated, unconstitutional retroactive censorship.”

Engineer In Oregon Fined $500 For Calling Himself An Engineer – WorldNetDaily

Beaverton, Oregon, resident Mats Jنrlstrِm – a Swedish-born electronics engineer by training and previous work experience – is $500 poorer after being fined by an Oregon agency following his attempt to point out a problem in the state’s traffic lights that “puts the public at risk.”

Specifically, Jنrlstrِm – after spending a year investigating the timing of yellow lights and red-light camera statistics – found people were being electronically captured running yellow lights because of misapplication of a timing formula developed in 1959 and still used internationally.

“They only looked at a vehicle traveling safely directly through an intersection, however the equation they developed is not used for turning lanes,” Jنrlstrِm told Motherboard. “When you make a turn you slow down, but that’s not accounted for in their solution, so people are getting caught in red-light cameras for making safe turns.”

Armed with a year’s worth of data, Jنrlstrِm presented his findings to various groups, including the local sheriff – his wife’s earlier red-light ticket having sparked his quest – “60 Minutes” and Alexei Maradudin, the last surviving author of the 1959 paper still used to time traffic lights…

Less than a year after a federal appellate court sided with the Obama administration to strike down North Carolina’s election integrity reforms, a state audit reveals that hundreds of votes were illegally cast by felons and non-citizens in just one election.

Voter impersonation, double voting and irregularities in absentee ballots sent via mail also tainted the election, according to the investigation conducted by the North Carolina State Board of Elections (NCSBE). The probe analyzed records from the 2016 general election.

State auditors found that about 500 ineligible people voted in 2016, more than 440 of them felons. Dozens of non-citizens from 28 different countries also cast ballots, the probe found. “A number of non-citizens said they were not aware that they were prohibited from voting,” the report states…

House Freedom Caucus Officially Endorses GOP Obamacare Repeal Bill – Breitbart

In a major move on the GOP effort to repeal and replace Obamacare, the conservative Freedom Caucus of the House of Representatives has announced its endorsement of the latest bill after New Jersey Republican Tom MacArthur introduced substantive changes.

The Freedom Caucus was a key voice against the bill introduced by the Republican leadership last month, causing House Speaker Paul Ryan to pull the bill from consideration. But since Ryan’s failure to pass the bill, Republicans have been negotiating amendments to make it more attractive to conservatives.

Days ago House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows (R-NC) told Breitbart News that he expected an Obamacare repeal bill to pass by the end of May, and now the group has announced its support of the newest measure.

The group said in a Wednesday press release:

Canada’s Housing Bubble Explodes As Its Biggest Mortgage Lender Crashes Most In History – Zero Hedge

Call it Canada’s “New Century” moment.

We first introduced readers to the company we said was the “tip of the iceberg in Canada’s magnificent housing bubble” nearly two years ago, in July 2015 when we exposed a major problem that we predicted would haunt Home Capital Group, Canada’s largest non-bank mortgage lender: liar loans in particular, and a generally overzealous lending business model with little regard for fundamentals. In the interim period, many other voices – most prominently noted short-seller Marc Cohodes – would constantly remind traders and investors about the threat posed by HCG.

Today, all those warnings came true, when the stock of Home Capital Group cratered by over 60%, its biggest drop on record, after the company disclosed that it struck an emergency liquidity arrangement for a C$2 billion ($1.5 billion) credit line to counter evaporating deposits at terms that will leave the alternative mortgage lender unable to meet financial targets, and worse, may leave it insolvent in very short notice…

Migrant Crime Rate Skyrockets 52 Percent In Germany – MILO

Migrant crimes and politically motivated crimes in Germany have reportedly increased drastically.

Reuters is reporting that the number of migrant criminal suspects is skyrocketing. Additionally, German broadcaster Deutsche Welle (DW) is reporting that the number of “ideologically motivated crimes by foreigners” has also gone sky high.

This should come as no surprise given the number of crimes involving migrant crime that have popped up in Germany.

In one case, a 19-year-old migrant is accused of raping a 90-year-old woman on her way home from church. In another act of perversion, an Afghan migrant was caught masturbating in front of an underage girl at a public pool.

In Germany, if you’re not being raped by a migrant or they’re not exposing themselves to you, be careful because you might be in a crowd of people about to be attacked by one with a sharp object or a truck or something. German police even had to go on a manhunt after a machete attack left an 80-year man seriously injured…

Trump’s Border Wall Request Equals 0.035 Percent Of Federal Spending – CNS

President Donald Trump’s request that Congress include $1.4 billion to fund the beginning of his proposed wall on the U.S.-Mexico border equals approximately 0.035 percent of what the federal government will spend in total this year, according to the latest estimate of fiscal year 2017 federal spending made by the Congressional Budget Office.

It also equals less than the Department of Health and Human Services spends in just twelve hours and less than the Treasury collects in taxes in four hours. That is assuming that HHS spends money 24 hours a day and the Treasury collects it 24 hours a day.

In its baseline budget projections published in January, the CBO estimated that in fiscal 2017, which runs through September, the federal government will collect $3,404,000,000,000 in taxes and spend $3,963,000,000,000.

On March 16, President Trump sent a letter to House Speaker Paul Ryan requesting certain items be included in the continuing resolution that Congress must pass to fund the government for the remainder of the fiscal year after the current CR expires on April 28…

Trump Discovers Obama Was Spending $300 Million On Fake Afghan Soldiers, Gives Pentagon New Orders – Conservative Tribune

Millions of U.S. taxpayer dollars were being foolishly wasted paying for the salaries of non-existent “ghost” soldiers and policemen in Afghanistan under the Obama administration, but no more.

According to the special inspector general for Afghanistan reconstruction, John Sopko, who recently sat down for an interview with Sharyl Attkinson of Full Measure, the ongoing problem may have been worse than anyone realized, but was being addressed by President Donald Trump’s Pentagon.

“We’ve been raising this concern about ghosts going back a number of years,” Sopko said. “Actually I want to say we heard about it from (Afghan President) Ashraf Ghani years ago, before he became president, he warned me about ‘ghosts,’ so we started looking three years ago.”

Top Obama Official Squeals: ‘We Faked Climate Change Data’ – Your News Wire

Top Obama official Steven Koonin has become the latest Democrat to roll over and stab his former comrades in the back, telling the Wall Street Journal that Obama’s administration manipulated ‘climate change’ data to trick the public into accepting Democrat policies.

“What you saw coming out of the press releases about climate data, climate analysis, was, I’d say, misleading, sometimes just wrong,” said Koonin, former Undersecretary of the Department of Energy, referring to the Obama administration’s manipulations and lies.

According to Koonin’s explosive confession, departments responsible for environmental science either “misrepresented data” or “completely fabricated results” to justify the destructive policies of the Obama administration.

Scientists at NASA and the National Ocean and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) colluded with press officers to create deceitful press releases that propped up the former president’s agenda…

Russia Readies Back-Up System For Potential “Split With International Banking System” – Zero Hedge

The grand order of things could be undergoing some major overhauls. To put it more bluntly, a war to reset the global financial order is about to be unleashed.

Preparations inside Russia are being made in case the ultimate banking sanctions are placed on them, cutting off commerce inside the all-encompassing Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecomm SWIFT system – which runs credit, debt, and banking card transactions across a real time global network.

As it would be doled out by the banking elites, the price for misbehavior at the Kremlin could be ostracization from this global commerce vehicle.

But that isn’t the end of the story, Putin is readying his people to divorce from the international banking system altogether…

Wild Boars Rampage In Kirkuk Leaving Three ISIS Terrorists Dead – Iraqi News

Kirkuk (IraqiNews.com) Three Islamic State militants died late Sunday when wild boars attacked them in southern Kirkuk, a local source was quoted saying.

The animals went on a rampage near a farmland in al-Rashad region, an Islamic State pocket 53 kilometers south of Kirkuk. They attacked the militants and left three killed, according to the source.

Alsumaria News quoted the source saying that “Daesh (Islamic State) militants took revenge at the pigs that attacked the farmland,” but did not clarify the method.

Since emerging in 2014 to proclaim a self-styled “Islamic Caliphate”, ISIS members have held areas in southwestern Kirkuk, where thousands of civilians had to flee the group’s rule to refugee camps in the province and neighboring cities.

Local officials have repeatedly urged the government to hasten with security efforts to liberate ISIS-held regions in Kirkuk, but the Iraqi government is currently employing its full military power in the six-month-old campaign to retake Mosul, IS’s biggest stronghold in Iraq…

Islamic State militants have regularly executed civilians in Kirkuk over accusations of collaboration with security forces or attempting to flee the province to refugee camps.

U.S. Military Begins Moving THAAD Missile Defense To South Korea Site – Reuters

The U.S. military has started moving parts of the controversial THAAD anti-missile defense system into a planned deployment site in South Korea, Yonhap news agency reported on Wednesday, amid high tensions over North Korea’s missile and nuclear programs.

The United States and South Korea have agreed to deploy THAAD in response to the threat of missile launches by North Korea but China says it will do little to deter the North while destabilizing the regional security balance.

Trailer trucks carrying parts of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system entered the site on what had been a golf course in the county of Seongju in a southern region of South Korea, Yonhap news agency and YTN television reported…

Idiot Leftist Refuses To Believe DNA Test Proving He’s White – Daily Caller

A man refused to accept the results of his ancestry DNA test after it revealed he wasn’t black, according to a New York Times piece last week.

Two professors from West Chester University decided to do an in-depth analysis into various people’s ancestries and backgrounds. First they asked participants to guess the results. One of their participants, Bernard, came away very displeased when the test revealed he was mainly European and not at all black.

Bernard walked into the test identifying himself as “black.” He informed the professors ahead of time that despite having a white mother, his mother raised him to identify as a black man.

“My mother said, ‘I know you are me, but no cop is going to take the time to find out your mother is white,’” Bernard explained before the test. “She was very specific about raising me as a black man.”

Bernard’s test, however, revealed that he is only one percent African/Asian…

Treasonous, Obama-Appointed Judge Temporarily Blocks Part Of Trump’s Executive Order Defunding Sanctuary Cities – Daily Caller
.

.
A federal judge temporarily blocked a key portion of an immigration-related executive order Donald Trump signed in January that would allow the federal government to withhold funding from sanctuary cities.

U.S. District Court Judge William Orrick issued a nationwide preliminary injunction Tuesday that prevents the government from enforcing the part of order where it says the policy of the executive branch is to “ensure that jurisdictions that fail to comply with applicable federal law do not receive Federal funds, except as mandated by law.”

In his ruling on the lawsuit brought forth by San Francisco and by Santa Clara counties, Orrick said the cities – which shield illegal immigrants – would “suffer irreparable harm absent an injunction.”…

Ted Cruz Introduces Bill That Would Fund Border Wall With Money Seized From Drug Lords – The Hill

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) is introducing a bill to allow assets seized from drug lords, like Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, to fund President Trump’s proposed wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

Cruz’s bill, the Ensuring Lawful Collection of Hidden Assets to Provide Order Act, also known as the “El Chapo Act,” is a reference to the Mexican drug kingpin from the Sinaloa cartel.

The U.S. government is seeking $14 billion from the drug lord as part of its prosecution of Guzman.

“Fourteen billion dollars will go a long way toward building a wall that will keep Americans safe and hinder the illegal flow of drugs, weapons and individuals across our southern border,” Cruz said Tuesday, according to Axios.

Guzman was extradited from Mexico to the U.S. in January, pleading not guilty to a 17-charge indictment in a federal court in New York.

The charges allege that Guzman led a continuing criminal enterprise responsible for drug trafficking and conspiracy between 1989 and 2014…

Trump’s Lawyer Launches Legal Action Against BuzzFeed For Publishing ‘Completely Fabricated’ Dossier – Washington Times

Michael D. Cohen, President Trump’s personal attorney, says he has instructed his own attorney to investigate legal action against BuzzFeed, which posted an opposition research “dossier” that accused Mr. Cohen without proof of a conspiracy with Russian agents.

Mr. Cohen told The Washington Times that he also is considering a lawsuit against former British spy Christopher Steele, who wrote the gossipy 35-page dossier that the liberal news website posted on Jan. 10.

Mr. Steele was paid by a Hillary Clinton supporter, via the Democratic Party-linked firm Fusion GPS, to gather dirt on candidate Trump last summer and fall. GPS circulated the Steele memos to reporters and Democrats.

But it was not until BuzzFeed posted the dossier that some people named in it learned that they were accused of wrongdoing.

In Mr. Cohen’s case, Mr. Steele accused him of traveling to Prague in the last week of August to meet with Russian agents to devise a plan to cover up the supposed Trump-Russia hacking of Democratic Party email servers…

Mexico On High Alert After Radioactive Material Is Stolen – Daily Express

The Mexican government has placed nine states on high alert after radioactive material capable of creating a dirty bomb was stolen near the nation’s second largest city. The Iridium 192, a potentially highly unstable material used in radiography equipment, was stolen on the outskirts of tourist hotspot Guadalajara.

Luis Felipe Puente‏, head of national emergency services, placed nine states on high alert after the material disappeared just half a day’s drive from the Texan border.

Iridium 192, which has a half-life of 73 days, is one of a small number of radioactive materials suitable for use in an act of radiological terror.

U.S. stocks opened higher on Tuesday, building on a day-earlier rally, spurred by a raft of strong corporate earnings and an expected tax reform plan.

Better-than-expected quarterly profits from Dow components, including Caterpillar and McDonald’s, helped the blue-chip index outperform other major Wall Street indexes in active trading.

Amazon Immediately Regrets Giving Muslims A Job After Nasty Payback They Just Got For It – Freedom Daily

They soon learned what happens when ignorance and Islam collide after showing up to work recently and getting a nasty surprise from these ungrateful immigrants they had generously hired. It didn’t take long for the mega-retailer to return the favor with a special surprise of their own.

Dozens Of ‘Juveniles’ Swarm Communter Train In Oakland, Terrorize And Rob Passengers – San Francisco Gate

BART police are beefing up patrols at Oakland stations after dozens of juveniles terrorized riders Saturday night when they invaded the Coliseum Station and commandeered at least one train car, forcing passengers to hand over bags and cell phones and leaving at least two with head injuries.

The incident occurred around 9:30 p.m. Saturday. Witnesses told police that 40 to 60 juveniles flooded the station, jumped the fare gates and rushed to the second-story train platform. Some of the robbers apparently held open the doors of a Dublin-bound train car while others streamed inside, confronting and robbing and in some cases beating riders.

“I’ve been there 24 years and this is the first time I’ve heard of anything like this happening,” said Keith Garcia, a BART police officer and union president.

New Orleans Tears Down Confederate Monument Under Dark Of Night – American Mirror

New Orleans city officials removed the first of four Confederate monuments in the city in the dead of night Monday to avoid potential conflicts with protestors who want it to stay where it is.

Workers decked out in bulletproof vests, military helmets and scarves covering their faces disassembled the Liberty Place monument and hauled away the pieces around 5:35 a.m., as police oversaw their work from atop a nearby parking garage, the Associated Press reports.

The precautions, which included starting work at about 1:25 a.m., didn’t deter Civil War re-enactor Robert Bonner from coming down to the site to share his thoughts about the ordeal.

“I think it’s a terrible thing,” the 63-year-old said. “When you start removing history of the city, you start losing money. You start losing where you came from and where you’ve been.”

New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landreau and the City Council disagree.

The predominantly black Council voted 6-1 in 2015 to remove the Liberty Place monument, as well as statues honoring Confederate Generals Robert E. Lee and P.G.T. Beauregard and Confederate States of America President Jefferson Davis, but legal challenges delayed the action until now.

Patricia Brennan, a visiting lecturer at Mount Holyoke College in Massachusetts, worked on the duck penis study that received $384,949 from the National Science Foundation, a grant that was funded through the 2009 stimulus package. The study looked at the differences in the corkscrew-shaped penises of ducks.

A recent interview with New England Public Radio revealed that Brennan is still fascinated by genitalia of various marine animals, this time one from an orca whale that was just delivered from Sea World to her lab…

German Judge Rules Turkish Man’s Forced Violent Sex Is ‘Culturally’ Not Rape – PJ Media

A German judge has acquitted a Turkish man of rape, despite the fact that he forced a woman to have sex with him, and left her incapacitated. The judge argued that in “the mentality of the Turkish cultural circle,” what the woman “had experienced as rape” might be considered merely “wild sex.” The judge refused to convict the rapist, because “no intention is demonstrable.”

According to the German daily newspaper Mنrkische Allgemeine (forgive the weak translation from Google Translate), the judge told the woman, “I believe Mrs. G. every word,” but added that “her tormentor probably did not know what he was doing to her.” On the night of August 18, 2016, the 23-year-old Turkish man sold drugs to the young woman and they consumed speed together.

He asked her to “go to bed with her” and she refused. According to the report, she had said he was “not her type.” But the drug dealer forced himself on her…

Trump Negotiates Release Of Egyptian-American Prisoner Held In Egypt For 3 Years – Business Insider

The Trump administration negotiated the release of a US citizen who was held in an Egyptian prison for three years.

Aya Hijazi, who is of Egyptian-American heritage, was released and brought back to her family in Washington, The Washington Post reported on Thursday.

Hijazi was in Egypt running a nongovernmental organization that was seen as an anti-Egyptian scheme by Egyptian security officials, according to The Post. Her Egyptian husband and four coworkers were arrested as well.

Hijazi and her coworkers were imprisoned on May 1, 2014 on child abuse and trafficking charges – accusations that were baseless, according to US officials and human-rights workers – due to the lack of evidence. In prison, Hijazi her companions were allegedly subjected to “coercive interrogation techniques,” while their trial dates were either canceled or continuously postponed.

South Indian Frog Oozes Molecule That Inexplicably Decimates Flu Viruses – Ars Technica

From the slimy backs of a South Indian frog comes a new way to blast influenza viruses.

A compound in the frog’s mucus – long known to have germ-killing properties – can latch onto flu virus particles and cause them to burst apart, researchers report in Immunity. The peptide is a potent and precise killer, able to demolish a whole class of flu viruses while leaving other viruses and cells unharmed. But scientists don’t know exactly how it pulls off the viral eviscerations. No other antiviral peptide of its ilk seems to work the same way.

The study authors, led by researchers at Emory University, note that the peptide appears uniquely nontoxic – something that can’t be said of many other frog-based compounds. Thus, the peptide on its own holds promise of being a potential therapy someday. But simply figuring out how it works could move researchers closer to a vaccine or therapy that could take out all flus, ditching the need for yearly vaccinations for each season’s flavor of flu.

With those annual waves of flu, the occasional pandemic, plus the rise of drug-resistant varieties of flu, “there is a pressing need to develop new antivirals” the authors write…

Trump Saves Another $60 Billion In Regulatory Costs – Washington Free Beacon

President Donald Trump and Congress have saved an additional $60 billion in regulatory costs by rolling back Obama administration rules, according to a new report.

The American Action Forum, a center-right policy institute, released a report Tuesday documenting the most recent ways the administration and Congress have used the Congressional Review Act to repeal regulations.

The report found the recent repeal and delay of regulations could lead to $86 billion in net fiscal effects for taxpayers from deregulation.

“Congress has already passed 13 CRA resolutions, repealing more than $1.1 billion (annually) in past regulations from the Obama Administration,” the report, written by Sam Batkins, director of regulatory policy for AAF, said. “In addition, President Trump has formally delayed and signaled an intention to amend several other major rules. Combined, these actions could generate more than $18 billion in annual regulatory savings for businesses, investors, and consumers.”…

Pervert Ex-Cop Gets 28 Years For Orchestrating Child Molestation – New York Post

An article in the Guardian last week provides more confirmation that John Brennan was the American progenitor of political espionage aimed at defeating Donald Trump. One side did collude with foreign powers to tip the election – Hillary’s.

Seeking to retain his position as CIA director under Hillary, Brennan teamed up with British spies and Estonian spies to cripple Trump’s candidacy. He used their phony intelligence as a pretext for a multi-agency investigation into Trump, which led the FBI to probe a computer server connected to Trump Tower and gave cover to Susan Rice, among other Hillary supporters, to spy on Trump and his people.

Two Muslims Arrested For Plotting “Imminent And Violent” Jihad Attack In France – Jihad Watch

“The French interior minister, Matthias Fekl, said the two… were radicalised French nationals aged 24 and 30. ‘These two radicalised men… intended to commit in the very short-term – by that I mean in the coming days – an attack on French soil.’”

The fact that neither Fekl nor the Guardian (or any other establishment media outlet) has the courage to explain exactly what these two men were “radicalized” into is an indication of why the West is losing the battle against the global jihad, and why there will be many, many more plots like this one, many of them successful.

Attentive tea-leaf readers will note that one of these men is named “Mahiedine,” a Muslim name out of Algeria, and that the term “radicalized” is usually only used of Muslims who wage jihad. But imagine if the Pearl Harbor attack had been reported this way: “Planes flown by radicalized men struck Pearl Harbor yesterday. President Roosevelt took to the airwaves to remind Americans that Japan is a peaceful nation, and that a tiny minority of radicalized extremists should not be used to create a climate of Japanophobia.”…

The National Institute for Labor Relations Research (NILRR), a nonprofit union watchdog, found that unions spent $1.713 billion on political activities and lobbying. The watchdog group analyzed federal labor filings that disclose how much unions spend on political activities at the federal, state, and local level, as well as Federal Election Commission records collected by OpenSecrets.com.
