Egypt Uncovers International Satanic Organ And Child Trafficking Ring – Your News Wire

An international Satanic organ harvesting ring has been uncovered in Egypt. Authorities have arrested doctors, nurses, professors and members of the elite allegedly involved in Satanic rituals involving human organs and dead children.

The arrests of at least 45 people on Tuesday also included international organ buyers and middlemen who profit off the Satanic organization’s thirst for human body parts, the country’s Administrative Control Authority said.

Authorities said the discovery of “millions of dollars and gold bullion” prompted them to investigate further and led to the unravelling of the “largest international network for trading human organs” in the world.

It is illegal to purchase organs in Egypt, but poverty drives some to sell their body parts. Other organs are believed to have been harvested against their owners will and in some cases people were killed for the trade.

The Administrative Control Authority, a powerful anti-corruption body, claimed the network targeted on Tuesday was “made up of Egyptians and Arabs taking advantage of some of the citizens’ difficult economic conditions so that they buy their human organs and sell [them] for large sums of money”. The organs are then used in Satanic rituals around the world.

The statement on the government website added that the group was “the largest international network for trading human organs”…

Trump Picks Marine Corps General John Kelly For Secretary Of Homeland Security – Daily Caller
.

.
President-elect Donald Trump has selected retired Marine Gen. John Kelly to head the Department of Homeland Security, according to CBS.

Kelly was the head of U.S. Southern Command (SOUTHCOM) until his retirement in January. He is the third general joining the Trump administration, having been preceded by Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, who will serve as national security advisor, and Marine Gen. James Mattis, who will serve as secretary of defense.

Like fellow Mattis, Kelly is known for his no-nonsense attitude. His appointment comes as a bit of a surprise, given his disdain for politics. He once referred to U.S. politics a “cesspool” in an interview with Foreign Policy magazine this summer. He also did not endorse Trump during the campaign, and expressed interest in working for either a Republican or Democratic administration…

Ohio Lawmakers Pass ‘Heartbeat’ Abortion Bill – Columbus Dispatch

The election of Donald Trump emboldened majority Republicans in the Ohio General Assembly to pass the strictest abortion law in the nation Tuesday.

In a surprise move in the final days of the lame-duck session, the Senate and House adopted the Heartbeat Bill – long sought by some abortion opponents – to outlaw abortions once a fetal heartbeat can be detected, generally about six weeks into pregnancy.

Previous attempts to pass the bill failed over concerns that it would be ruled unconstitutional in the federal courts, as have similar laws in two other states.

“A new president, new Supreme Court appointees change the dynamic, and there was consensus in our caucus to move forward,” said Senate President Keith Faber, R-Celina, when asked why the measure suddenly surfaced to the shock of objecting Democrats.

“I think it has a better chance than it did before,” Faber said of the bill’s chances of surviving a constitutional review by the courts.

Ohio Democratic Women’s Caucus Chair Kathy DiCristofaro said “this bill – which was tacked on as a last-minute amendment to a child abuse prevention bill – makes no exceptions for rape or incest victims. It is cruel and plainly unconstitutional – but it seems like Ohio Republicans don’t care about the Constitution. Trump’s vision for America is already alive and well in the Buckeye State.”

Janet Porter, president of Faith2Action who has pushed for passage of the bill for years, sometimes with harsh tactics including protests at members’ homes, said…

Pentagon Buried Study Exposing $125 Billion In Waste – Fox News
.

.
Senior defense officials suppressed a study documenting $125 billion worth of administrative waste at the Pentagon out of fears that Congress would use its findings to cut the defense budget, the Washington Post reported late Monday.

The report, which was issued in January 2015 by the advisory Defense Business Board (DBB), called for a series of reforms that would have saved the department $125 billion over the next five years.

Among its other findings, the report showed that the Defense Department was paying just over 1 million contractors, civilian employees and uniformed personnel to fill back-office jobs. That number nearly matches the amount of active duty troops – 1.3 million, the lowest since 1940…

Because Leftists Are Insane… – Washington Free Beacon

Several media outlets are praising recent changes that a couple made to the classic song “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” after some accused it of being an anthem for date rape.

The Daily Caller on Monday night highlighted some of the compliments coming from various media outlets, such as CNN, People, and the Huffington Post. Much of the praise comes from a newer version of the song stressing consent in its lyrics.

The original song was written in 1944 by Frank Loesser to sing at parties with his wife Lynn. The song became a hit after it appeared in movies and has become mainstream ever since, remaining a popular duet. It describes a man trying to romantically woo a woman who he likes to stay at a party longer because the weather is cold after she says she needs to go home.

Critics of the original version argue that the lyrics allude to unwanted sexual advances and even rape, noting that the man in the song pleads with the woman to stay and gives her another drink.

One couple from Minnesota thought the 1944 song was “so aggressive and inappropriate” and wrote a new version that they say emphasizes consent in sexual relations.

The Daily Caller rebuts the critics of the song in its article and asserts that “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” is simply a romantic song of which the detractors do not understand the historical context or listen to all of the lyrics.

The newer, redone version is advertised as “less sexually aggressive” than the original, which is generally recognized as a a romantic Christmas song…

Flight Logs Show Bill Clinton Flew To ‘Pedophile Island’ A Lot More Than Previously Known – Real Strategy

Former President Bill Clinton was a much more frequent flyer on a registered sex offender’s infamous jet than previously reported, with flight logs showing the former president taking at least 26 trips aboard the “Lolita Express” – even apparently ditching his Secret Service detail for at least five of the flights, according to records obtained by FoxNews.com.

Clinton’s presence aboard Jeffrey Epstein’s Boeing 727 on 11 occasions has been reported, but flight logs show the number is more than double that, and trips between 2001 and 2003 included extended junkets around the world with Epstein and fellow passengers identified on manifests by their initials or first names, including “Tatiana.” The tricked-out jet earned its Nabakov-inspired nickname because it was reportedly outfitted with a bed where passengers had group sex with young girls…

Obama Clan Has Spent $85 Million In Taxpayer Money On Travel, Vacations – Washington Examiner

The first family has spent over $10 million a year on travel and vacations, and the still growing bill has crossed over $85 million in eight years, according to a watchdog group.

Judicial Watch, which has charted the travel of presidents for years, on Monday said that it has received a new batch of bills for the first family’s Christmas break in Hawaii, bringing that trip to nearly $5 million. The Obama’s are expected to return to Hawaii this Christmas.

The expenses cover items such as security, flights and hotel rooms for staff and U.S. Secret Service. They do not include the price of prepositioning ships and aircraft in the area or much of the communications costs.

From Judicial Watch:

Judicial Watch announced today that it obtained records from the U.S. Secret Service revealing that its travel expenses for the First Family’s 2015 Hawaiian vacation cost taxpayers $1.2 million, which bring the total cost of the vacation trip to at least $4.8 million. This was the Obamas’ eighth Hawaiian family vacation. The trip has become an annual event for the Obamas. To date, Obama’s and his family’s travel expenses total at least $85,029,819.

The records obtained by Judicial Watch for Obama’s Secret Service travel to Hawaii reveal the following expenses totaling $1,234,316.67:

Hotel and lodging costs totaled $1,000,458.63.

The Secret Service spent $165,893.88 on car rentals.

Air and rail expenses totaled $67,964.16…

Socialist France Passes Crackdown On Pro-Life Websites – Washington Free Beacon

France’s socialist government is attempting to crack down on pro-life activists by criminalizing online advocacy at odds with the nation’s abortion regime.

On Thursday, the French National Assembly passed a bill that makes it a crime to post information online that challenges abortion. Pro-life activists who continue to operate online face up to two years in prison and a fine of more than $30,000. The bill is an expansion of a 1993 law that penalized giving out “false information” or physically blocking those seeking abortion from entering clinics. The bill passed by French lawmakers will punish web operators who post material considered “deliberately misleading, intimidating and/or exerting psychological or moral pressure.”

The French legislation follows a controversy that erupted after the French government blocked an advertisement featuring smiling children with Down syndrome because it could dredge up feelings of guilt from woman who decided to abort babies diagnosed with the genetic condition in-utero. About 96 percent of all babies diagnosed with the condition are aborted in France. The two-minute ad featured testimony from Down syndrome children and adults, as well as their parents explaining that they were capable of living full and happy lives. In November a French court upheld the ban, saying the video would “‘disturb the conscience of women who, in accordance with the law, have made personal life choices.’”

French pro-life group Droit de Naître (Right to Be Born) told the Washington Free Beacon in a statement that the socialist government is trying to ram through pro-abortion legislation because of its dismal prospects in the upcoming French elections…

VMI, Famed Military Academy, Giving Cadets Coloring Books For Stress – Washington Free Beacon

A prestigious military school is providing coloring books for cadets to deal with stress.

The Virginia Military Institute, the first state-sponsored military college in the country founded in 1839, offers a “stress busters” program to provide students with yoga classes to “unwind and relax.”

“Beginning in the 2016-2017 academic year, the Cadet Peer Educators (CPEs) will merge with cadet government under the Cadet Equity Association’s (CEA) Training and Education branch. As such, the formerly known CPEs are now members of CEA,” according to a screenshot taken from the school’s website. “All CEA trained educators are nationally certified through the BACCHUS™ network to assist with new cadet development, education/prevention programs, and individual peer support for a broad range of topics such as stress management, alcohol and tobacco, interpersonal relationships, bystander intervention, and suicide prevention. Trained peer educators are interviewed, selected, trained and advised by Cadet Government and the Center of Cadet Counseling.”

The school said “peer educators” will still provide “Stress Busters” programs for students, which includes an event that lets cadets color.

“Stress Busters is held on Reading Day of each semester,” the school said. “This is an opportunity for cadets to unwind and relax before studying for finals. This event often includes stress reduction activities such as yoga, therapy dogs, coloring book stations, card/game stations, and grab-and-go snacks to take with you on your way to study!”…

Southern Poverty Law Center Omits Trump-Related Hate Crimes Against White Children – Washington Times

A liberal nonprofit group dedicated to combating bigotry left out “hate crimes” committed against white students in a report titled “The Trump Effect: The Impact of the 2016 Presidential Election on Our Nation’s Schools.”

The Southern Poverty Law Center surveyed over 10,000 K-12 teachers after the Nov. 8 U.S. presidential election. The group, working in tandem with the American Federation of Teachers, compiled a list of “hate incidents,” but readers who wanted to know whether white children were also harassed were not given existing data.

Leftist Social Media Giants To Set Up Extremist (aka Non-Leftist) Database – Yahoo News

Web giants YouTube , Facebook, Twitter and Microsoft will step up efforts to remove extremist content from their websites by creating a common database.

The companies will share ‘hashes’ – unique digital fingerprints they automatically assign to videos or photos – of extremist content they have removed from their websites to enable their peers to identify the same content on their platforms.

“We hope this collaboration will lead to greater efficiency as we continue to enforce our policies to help curb the pressing global issue of terrorist content online,” the companies said in a statement on Tuesday.

Tech companies have long resisted outside intervention in how their sites should be policed, but have come under increasing pressure from Western governments to do more to remove extremist content following a wave of militant attacks.

YouTube and Facebook have begun to use hashes to automatically remove extremist content.

But many providers have relied until now mainly on users to flag content that violates terms of service. Flagged material is then individually reviewed by human editors who delete postings found to be in violation.

Twitter suspended 235,000 accounts between February and August this year and has expanded the teams reviewing reports of extremist content.

Each company will decide what image and video hashes to add to the database and matching content will not be automatically removed, they said.

The database will be up and running in early 2017 and more companies could be brought into the partnership…

The Texas chapter of one of the nation’s most powerful unions filed for bankruptcy after losing a multi-million dollar lawsuit for its smear campaign against a Houston janitorial company.

A jury ordered Service Employees International Union Texas, also known as SEIU District Five, to pay Professional Janitorial Service of Houston $7.8 million in September for making false claims about the company during a campaign to rally support from workers and local activists.

A Texas judge rejected the union’s request for a mistrial on November 15 and ordered it to hand over files associated with the case to the company for discovery.

Farce Update: Hillary Gains 5 Votes As Pennsylvania’s Largest Counties Complete Recounts – Daily Caller

Pennsylvania’s largest two counties completed their presidential vote recounts Monday and Hillary Clinton only picked up five votes.

According to an election official in Philadelphia County, the largest county in the state, Clinton netted five votes after its final computations. Another official from the board of elections in the second largest county – Allegheny, where the city of Pittsburgh is located — told The Daily Caller that no numbers changed after their second recount was completed.

An official from the board of elections in Lehigh County, which also submitted its recount numbers Monday, said their numbers did not change from their previous recount either.

The recount in Pennsylvania is a result of Green Party candidate Jill Stein’s call for recounts in three key rust belt states, where Donald Trump narrowly beat Clinton. The other two states are Wisconsin and Michigan…

Trump Chooses Ben Carson For Housing Secretary – Breitbart

President-elect Donald Trump has chosen former Campaign 2016 rival Ben Carson to become secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Trump’s decision, announced early Monday by his transition office, comes as the real estate mogul continues a series of interviews, meetings with aides and other deliberations aimed at forming his administration.

In a statement, Trump says he’s “thrilled to nominate” Carson, saying he “has a brilliant mind and is passionate about strengthening communities and families within those communities.”

Carson has been coy about joining the new administration, saying shortly after Trump’s election victory that he wasn’t certain he’d fit into a Cabinet-style role. The discussion at that time centered on speculation that Carson might be selected to head the sprawling Department of Health and Human Services…

President Asshat Blocks Dakota Access Pipeline, But Protesters Aren’t Leaving – CNS

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said Sunday that it won’t grant an easement for the Dakota Access oil pipeline in southern North Dakota, handing a victory to the Standing Rock Sioux tribe and its supporters, who argued the project would threaten the tribe’s water source and cultural sites.

North Dakota’s leaders criticized the decision, with Gov. Jack Dalrymple calling it a “serious mistake” that “prolongs the dangerous situation” of having several hundred protesters who are camped out on federal land during cold, wintry weather. U.S. Rep. Kevin Cramer said it’s a “very chilling signal” for the future of infrastructure in the United States.

The four-state, $3.8 billion project is largely complete except for the now-blocked segment underneath Lake Oahe, a Missouri River reservoir. Assistant Secretary for Civil Works Jo-Ellen Darcy said in a news release that her decision was based on the need to “explore alternate routes” for the pipeline’s crossing. Her full decision doesn’t rule out that it could cross under the reservoir or north of Bismarck.

“Although we have had continuing discussion and exchanges of new information with the Standing Rock Sioux and Dakota Access, it’s clear that there’s more work to do,” Darcy said. “The best way to complete that work responsibly and expeditiously is to explore alternate routes for the pipeline crossing.”

The company constructing the pipeline, Dallas-based Energy Transfer Partners, released a statement Sunday night slamming the decision as politically motivated and alleging that President Obama’s administration was determined to delay the matter until he leaves office…

U.S. Health Care Spending Up 5.8% To $3.2 Trillion; $9,990 Per Person – CNS

The nation’s health care tab grew at the fastest rate in eight years in 2015, driven by the coverage expansion in President Barack Obama’s law and by costly prescription drugs, the government said Friday.

The growth of 5.8 percent in 2015 boosted total health care spending to $3.2 trillion. That’s an average of $9,990 per person, although the vast share of that money is spent caring for the sickest patients.

Health spending grew about 2 percentage points faster than the overall economy in 2015, said the report from nonpartisan economic experts at the Department of Health and Human Services. That’s a problem because it makes it harder for government programs, employers, and individuals to afford the level of health care that Americans are used to having.

The report was disappointing news for the outgoing Obama administration, which had enjoyed a long stretch of historically low increases in health care spending, and had sought to credit its 2010 health care overhaul for taming costs. It’s a reality check for President-elect Donald Trump, who did not focus much on health care during his campaign and implied that problems could be easily fixed.

America has struggled for decades to balance health care cost, access, and quality. Obama’s law made significant strides to expand access, and the report found nearly 91 percent of U.S. residents now have coverage. But the problem of costs has re-emerged. That’s partly because people with health insurance use more medical care than the uninsured, who tend to postpone going to the doctor. Some of the newly insured turned out to be sicker than those who were already covered…

Obama Loses Another Ally As Italian Prime Minister Resigns After Referendum Loss – Washington Times

Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, one of President Obama’s closest partners in Europe, announced his resignation Sunday after voters rejected proposed political reforms in a referendum influenced by anti-establishment attitudes also on the rise in other countries.

The vote was intended by Mr. Renzi to revise Italy’s Constitution and reduce the size of its Senate to streamline the government and consolidate the prime minister’s power. But the balloting instead became a referendum on Mr. Renzi himself, with voters expressing some of the same anti-establishment dissatisfaction that has surfaced from the United Kingdom to the U.S. this year.

Exit polls in Italy showed the referendum losing by roughly 55 percent against 41 percent in favor. The euro hit a 20-month low on the results.

Hillary Supporter Bashes Elferly Woman Over The Head With A Chair During ‘Election Argument’ – American Mirror

A Hillary Clinton supporter is apparently still sore over the election results, and police say he hit an elderly woman over the head with a chair during an argument about it.

Donora, Pennsylvania police say 27-year-old Matthew Pugh was having an “election argument” with a fellow resident of the Donora Towers high-rise apartment complex when he “reportedly became enraged,” the Observer-Reporter reports.

“He allegedly picked up a chair and hit the woman over the head, knocking her to the floor,” according to the paper.

The chair gashed the woman on the head and she “bled severely.” She suffered other injuries during the fall and was taken to the hospital for emergency medical treatment.

According to police, Pugh left the scene, but was apprehended a short time later.

Donora police say Pugh is a Hillary Clinton supporter and was triggered when “the woman apparently made a comment either against Clinton or in support of Trump,” Donora police Officer Keith Charlton tells the paper.

The Herald Standard newspaper identifies the victim as 69-year-old Maureen Zubrick.

“Both Zubrick and Pugh took a side on the recent presidential election,” Charlton wrote in an affidavit.

Pugh was held on “attempted homicide” charges, as well as aggravated assault, simple assault and recklessly endangering another person.

He was arraigned on November 30 for the alleged November 20 attack and is currently housed in the Washington County Correctional Facility in lieu of a $50,000 bond…

Federal Government Pays $860 Million To Defense Contractors Just To Exist – Daily Caller

The U.S. Air Force is now paying $860 million dollars to United Launch Alliance (ULA), a joint venture between Lockheed Martin and Boeing, just so that it can keep existing.

The Air Force awarded ULA the money as a “sustainment fee.” The fee isn’t for any actual space launches but rather requires that the company will make itself available to conduct launches. In exchange for the cash, ULA will be required to maintain the capacity to launch a rocket into space and maintain the various bases and infrastructure necessary to do so. The money is expected to be spent by late September of 2017.

ULA was awarded the cash because the company is now facing stiff competition. ULA had almost cornered the market for national security-related rocket launches until last year, when SpaceX won U.S. Air Force certification for national security space missions.

“The U.S. Air Force uses two contracts to launch satellites,” Jessica Rye, a spokeswoman for ULA, told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “One to build the rocket and one to launch the rocket. The EELV Launch Capability (ELC) contract launches the rocket. ELC is not a sustainment fee. It is a contract structure developed by the Air Force to allow for the flexibility needed at that time in the program history… Without ELC, most of our nation’s national security satellites would have no access to space.”

The company collects an additional $5 billion in other spending from the Air Force for rocket hardware, according to the Government Accountability Office. Additionally, ULA gets $366 million dollars for most rocket launches…

New York City Man Who Lost His Sight Almost 20 Years Ago Regains Vision – Breitbart

A New York City man who went blind in 1997 has regained most of his sight, a phenomenon his doctors are struggling to explain.

Kevin Coughlin, 55, of Manhattan, was blinded by optic nerve disease when he was 36, CBS New York reported.

“I literally saw a very thick, impenetrable fog,” Coughlin told 1010 WINS’ John Montone.

Coughlin remained blind until he started seeing shadows in August 2013.

“In August of 2013 I saw a reflection of light on my medicine cabinet mirror after not seeing anything for 16 years,” Coughlin said.

Coughlin then saw the face of Elias, a black lab who was his guide dog at the time.

“I’m seeing more and more, and Elias hasn’t had his harness on for a year and a half,” Coughlin said.

Coughlin said he used to be self-conscious walking his dog through the streets, but now, he walks his dog with confidence.

“When I walked when I was blind I had this very tentative very self conscious gait, and now I have an expansive swagger,” Coughlin said. “Just seeing all the buildings that have been put up in the last 20 years, seeing the restoration of Grand Central Station is incredible.”

Coughlin has regained 70 percent of his vision, and he says it is improving every day. He credits prayer, meditation, and a diet rich with antioxidants, such as spinach, broccoli, and red kidney beans for his regained vision, according to WPIX.

Although he is happy to have regained his sight, he said losing his sight opened his eyes to the suffering of others…

Leftist Pervert Anthony Weiner Fined $65,000 For Campaign Finance Violations – The Hill

Former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) has been fined nearly $65,000 for repeatedly violating campaign finance law in his failed 2013 bid to become mayor of New York City, according to a Thursday report.

Americans Not In Labor Force Soar To Record 95.1 Million: Jump By 446,000 In One Month – Zero Hedge

So much for that much anticipated rebound in the participation rate.

After it had managed to post a modest increase in the early part of the year, hitting the highest level in one year in March at 63%, the disenchantment with working has returned, and the labor force participation rate had flatlined for the next few month, ultimately dropping in November to 62.7%, just shy of its 35 year low of 62.4% hit last October.

This can be seen in the surge of Americans who are no longer in the labor force, who spiked by 446,000 in November, hitting an all time high of 95.1 million.

As a result of this the US labor force shrank by 226,000 to 159,486K, down from 159,712K a month ago, and helped the unemployment rate tumble to 4.6%, the lowest level since August 2007.

Adding the number of unemployed workers to the people not in the labor force, there are now over 102.5 million Americans who are either unemployment or no longer looking for work…

The Western Michigan Broncos Deserve To Be In The NCAA Playoffs

So here’s the thing, I don’t like the way college football teams are selected for inclusion in the NCAA “playoffs”.

You probably noticed that I put the word playoffs in quotes there. That’s because I consider picking only four Division I-A teams out of a pool of 128 to be an insult to the very idea of a playoff system. In my opinion, there ought to be 12 teams in the mix at a bare minimum, but that’s a rant for another day.

And so, putting aside my utter contempt for the current playoff scheme, let’s suppose that it actually does have some merit, and that the participants thereof are representative of the best the NCAA has to offer. With that assumption in mind, can someone please explain to me in clear and rational terms why one of the ONLY-TWO undefeated teams in the division has been excluded from the playoffs?

I mean, if being PERFECT isn’t good enough to get you a seat at the table, how exactly are teams like the WESTERN MICHIGAN BRONCOS (13-0) incentivized to achieve such a record in the future?

What, they get to play in some pointless, participation-trophy bowl game like dozens of other teams that DIDN’T distinguish themselves at all?

*Best Church Lady voice* Well isn’t that special?

I guess it’s okay to treat Western Michigan like Fredo Corleone because the NCAA chose not to challenge that team with the caliber of opponents that the Alabama Crimson Tide faced this season, correct? It’s just one big ‘FUCK YOU’ from the start, and if you don’t like it, then all you Broncos fans can go pound sand, right?

Tell me, National Collegiate Athletic Association, what did you require of WMU at the beginning of this season which might have possibly allowed them to become a playoff team? Did they need to win every game by 25 points (on average) instead of only 24? Please proclaim your MAGIC NUMBER so I can slink off to my quiet corner of the world, safe in the knowledge that I’ve finally been set straight by the gods of college sports.

Man ‘Cured’ Of Prostate Cancer After Doctors Shock Tumor To Death With Testosterone – Daily Telegraph

A man with advanced prostate cancer is believed to be cured after doctors ‘shocked’ his tumour to death with huge amounts of testosterone.

The result has been described as ‘unexpected’ and ‘exciting’ because most prostate cancer therapies work by depriving tumours of testosterone, because cancer uses it as a fuel.

Other seriously ill men taking part in the same trial showed responses that astounded scientists, with tumours shrinking and the progress of their disease halted.

Levels of Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA), a blood marker used to monitor prostate cancer, also fell in the majority of the 47 participants.

One individual whose PSA levels dropped to zero after three months and shows no remaining trace of the disease after 22 cycles of treatment appears to be cured, said the researchers.

Professor Sam Denmeade, from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, US, who led the study, said: “”Our goal is to shock the cancer cells by exposing them rapidly to very high followed by very low levels of testosterone in the blood. The results are unexpected and exciting.

“We are still in the early stages of figuring out how this works and how to incorporate it into the treatment paradigm for prostate cancer.

“Many of the men have stable disease that has not progressed for more than 12 months.

“I think we may have cured one man whose PSA dropped to zero after three months and has remained so now for 22 cycles. His disease has all disappeared.”…

Gitmo Terrorists Reacted With Horror At Trump Victory On Election Night, Asked Guards For Tranquilizers – Mad World News

Donald Trump’s victory affected the whole world in different ways, and we’ve just learned about what went down on election night at Guantanamo Bay, which houses some of the worst terrorists who hate America more than anything. When it appeared that Donald Trump would win, the prisoners had various reactions, and it was way worse than any torture or waterboarding. You’re going to love this.

Those prisoners at Gitmo knew they had it easy with Barack Obama as president, and most of them waited with high anxiety on election night to see who would win. According to the bleeding-heart leftist attorneys representing the terrorists, the sheer terror that broke out when they realized Trump would win was priceless.

70% Of Immigrants Admitted Under Obama’s “Minor Refugee” Program Are Actually Adults – Zero Hedge

Two years ago the Obama administration sought out to tackle a “crisis” that involved minors seeking out “human smugglers” to help with transportation across the U.S. – Mexico border. So, with a swipe of the pen, Obama signed an executive order allowing minors of certain Central American countries to flee to the U.S. under a “refugee/parole program.”

Two years later, there’s just one problem: 70% of the people admitted under the program are actually adults. According to MRC TV, official data from the State Department indicates that of the 1,600 aliens that have traveled to the U.S. under the CAM program to date, only 480 of them are actually under the age of 18.

Now, under the CAM program, the State Department told MRCTV in an email Wednesday that of the 1,600 aliens who have traveled to the United States to date, only 480 of them – just 30 percent – are children under the age of 18.

Conversely, a full 70 percent of those aliens who’ve been allowed into the United States under the president’s program for “minors” are adults.

The controversial initiative was launched in December 2014 as part of President Obama’s executive actions on immigrants, and was touted as a way to bring illegal alien children from certain Central American countries into the United States to be reunited with their families, who are often here illegally themselves. The move was allegedly designed to keep underage children from relying on dangerous human smugglers to bring them across the U.S. –Mexico border illegally. Per the State Department:

The United States is establishing an in-country refugee/parole program in El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras to provide a safe, legal, and orderly alternative to the dangerous journey that some children are currently undertaking to the United States…

Taxpayer Relief Shot: 75-Year-Old Detroit Man Kills Home Invader – Washington Free Beacon

A 75-year-old Detroit man is alive, one suspected intruder is dead, and another is at large after a home invasion on Friday.

The man told police that he heard a noise at his home’s back door around 3 a.m. on Friday. Two men broke an exterior window to gain access to the home and then used a crowbar to break into an interior door. When the homeowner went to investigate he found the two men standing in his kitchen.

“He ended up firing two shots, striking one of the suspects,” Officer Dan Donakowski told the Detroit News. “Both suspects attempted to flee on foot, but the one that was hit collapsed in the backyard and was pronounced dead at the scene.”

Police said the suspects in the break-in were between the ages of 16 and 18 but did not release the identity of anyone involved in the ordeal. One community leader described the homeowner’s actions as a justifiable case of self-defense.

“These two young males presented imminent danger and the homeowner protected himself,” the local community security chairman told ABC affiliate WXYZ. “There’s no reason for anyone to violate the rights of senior citizens, women, children and try to break into a home.”

Police said the homeowner was cooperating with their investigation and they don’t plan to file any charges…

600 Veterans Potentially Infected With HIV, Hepatitis By The VA – Federalist Papers Project

Nearly 600 veterans who were being treated at a VA facility in Wisconsin may have been infected with several types of diseases due to violations of infection control protocol.

Some of those diseases include HIV, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C. The facility, in Tomah, Wisconsin, is in the process of notifying 592 veterans that they may have become infected, WEAU.com is reporting.

At a press conference Tuesday, acting medical center director Victoria Brahm said the dentist at the center was using his own equipment, then cleaning it and re-using it, a violation of VA regulations.

The facility’s rules require them to use sterile and disposable equipment.

Brahm said this was done for an entire year – from October 2015 through October 2016.

It only came to light when someone filling in as this dentist’s assistant noticed what was happening and reported it.

The dentist has been removed from “patient care” and is now working in an “administrative role,” the article states and the case will be referred to the inspector general for “assessment of any criminal charges.”

“It was purposeful that he was violating VA regulations,” Brahm said. “During all of the orientation, he used all of our equipment. He used it appropriately, so it was very purposeful from what we found in our investigation that he knew exactly what he was doing, and preferred to use his own equipment against procedure.”

Brahm told reporters that the Tomah VA has made improvements but still has others to make.

“We have clear evidence that we are moving forward and the people that remain here are very vested and here for the mission of taking care of veterans,” she said…

Leftist Baby-Killers Sue States So They Can Kill More Babies – Law Newz

The specific laws that Planned Parenthood is attempting to strike down are:

The exception to the last is if there is a medical emergency where the abortion will “avert her death or for which a delay will create serious risk of substantial and irreversible physical impairment of a major bodily function,” with mental illnesses excluded…

Leftists Lose Their Minds Over ‘Professor Watch List’ Created To Expose Liberal Indoctrination On Campus – Daily Caller

Turning Point USA, a conservative organization made up of high school and college students, has compiled a website database of more than 200 professors at universities across the nation that “discriminate against conservative students and advance leftist propaganda in the classroom.”

The website, professorwatchlist.org, doesn’t list just any professo­r – TPUSA requires proof.

“This watchlist is an aggregated list of pre-existing news stories that were published by a variety of news organizations,” the website states. “While we accept tips for new additions on our website, we only publish profiles on incidents that have already been reported by a credible source.”

The website also says that TPUSA is not attempting to silence the professors on the list, but instead they are exposing “specific incidents and names of professors that advance a radical agenda in lecture halls.”

Since its recent debut, the list has seen no shortage of harsh criticism.

Slate author Rebecca Schuman deemed the watchlist “grotesque,” and called it “a stock agency for photos of self-satisfied young white people.”

“Intentionally or not, the Professor Watchlist, simply by being a self-styled watch list, has aligned itself with the ugly, frightening new political status quo,” writes Schuman. “This is, indeed, a turning point in our country, a time of fear unprecedented on this continent since the Second World War. Fear of being placed on a list, targeted as undesirable, and subjected to whatever happens next.”…

Feds Cut $167 Million From Domestic Programs To House And Feed Illegals For Just 1 Month – Washington Examiner

The Department of Health and Human Services is raiding several of its accounts, including money for Medicare, the Ryan White AIDS/HIV program and those for cancer and flu research to cover a shortfall in housing illegal youths pouring over the border at a rate of 255 a day.

HHS is trying to come up with $167 million to fund the Office of Refugee Resettlement that is accepting the youths, according to the Center for Immigration Studies.

Policy Director Jessica Vaughan said that insiders have told her that the funding crisis has forced the department to squeeze programs for money.

She just revealed on the CIS website:

“An average of 255 illegal alien youths were taken into the custody of the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) every day this month, according to the latest figures the agency provided to Congress. This is the largest number of illegal alien children ever in the care of the federal government. To pay for it, the agency says it will need an additional one or two billion dollars for the next year – above and beyond the $1.2 billion spent in 2016 and proposed for 2017 – depending on how many more arrive. For now, the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), where ORR resides, is diverting $167 million from other programs to cover the cost of services for these new illegal arrivals through December 9, when the current continuing resolution expires.”

The money, she said, pays for “shelters, health care, schooling, recreation, and other services for the new illegal arrivals, who typically were brought to the border by smugglers paid by their parents, who often are living in the United States illegally.”…

9th Circuit Court Of Appeals Rules Marijuana Card Holders Cannot Own A Gun – Real Strategy

If you have a medical marijuana card, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals says that you can’t buy a gun.

The court ruled 3-0 on Wednesday that a ban preventing medical marijuana card holders from purchasing firearms is not in violation of the Second Amendment.

There are nine western states under the appeals court’s jurisdiction, including Nevada, where the case originated.

• Court Rules That Medical Marijuana Card will Prevent You from Buying a Gun

A lawsuit was filed in 2011 by Nevada resident S. Rowan Wilson after she tried to purchase a gun for self-defense and was denied based on a federal ban on the sale of guns to users of illegal drugs. Though marijuana has been legalized in some places on a state-by-state basis, it remains illegal under federal law. The court maintained that drug use “raises the risk of irrational or unpredictable behavior with which gun use should not be associated.”

Chaz Rainey, the attorney representing Wilson, said that he plans to appeal the decision. “We live in a world where having a medical marijuana card is enough to say you don’t get a gun, but if you’re on the no fly list your constitutional right is still protected,” he told the AP. He argued that there should be more consistency in how the Second Amendment is applied.

Alex Kreit, marijuana law expert at the San Diego’s Thomas Jefferson School of Law, expects that this ruling won’t be the last we see of the issue. He told the AP that the ruling may be challenged by people who use medical marijuana who will argue “that they shouldn’t be lumped with other drug users in terms of concerns about violence.”..

Trump Reaches Deal With Carrier To Keep 1,000 Jobs In U.S. – Daily Caller

The incoming Trump administration has reached a deal with Carrier to keep about 1,000 jobs in the U.S. rather than outsourcing them to Mexico.

Carrier, which manufactures air conditioners, attracted national attention in early 2016 due a viral video of the company’s employees reacting to the news they were getting laid off, with their jobs being sent to new production facilities in Mexico. The move was intended to save Carrier’s parent company, United Technologies, tens of millions of dollars in labor costs.

President-elect Donald Trump specifically pledged to reverse Carrier’s outsourcing plan if he were elected.

“It’s not like we have an 80 percent chance of keeping them or a 95 percent. One-hundred percent,” Trump told an Indianapolis rally last April.

On Thanksgiving, Trump announced he was negotiating with Carrier to keep at least some of its jobs in the United States. Now, those negotiations have borne fruit.

CNBC reported Tuesday night that a deal has been struck to keep about 1,000 jobs in the U.S., representing about half of the 2000 Carrier jobs that were to be outsourced from two different facilities. The deal, CNBC said, was spearheaded by vice president-elect and outgoing Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, and will be officially announced Thursday during a visit by Trump to the state.

Carrier itself later confirmed the deal.

It’s not clear how extensive the public inducements will be, but United Technologies has ample reason to please Trump…

Oil Prices Surge On Reports Of A Big Output Cut By OPEC – Fortune

Oil prices jumped more than 8% on Wednesday to a five-week high as newswires reported that the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries had agreed its first oil output cuts since 2008.

An OPEC source told Reuters on Wednesday that the cartel, which produces one-third of the world’s oil, had firmed up an agreement in line with a tentative deal reached in Algiers in September. That would involve cutting output from a current level of around 33.6 million barrels a day to somewhere between 32.5 million and 33 million.

Bloomberg said the new ceiling would be at the lower end of that range, an effective cut of between 1.1 million and 1.2 million barrels a day from current levels.

Brent crude futures for delivery in January were up $4 a barrel, or 8.5%, at $51.32 a barrel by 0915 ET, recovering from a drop of nearly 4% on Tuesday and on course for their biggest one-day move in nine months. U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures were $3.63 higher at $48.86 a barrel, a one-week high.

The volatility is acute because world markets are still badly oversupplied, and prices have edged up since September almost exclusively on the hope that OPEC would rein in output and end the price war that began in late 2014. Analysts at Goldman Sachs, Barclays, and ANZ had said oil prices would quickly fall to the low $40s a barrel if OPEC failed to cut output.

However, if the cut sticks, then the International Energy Agency reckons that the world market could “move from surplus to deficit very quickly in 2017”, leading prices to rise sharply once the existing stock overhang is depleted…

Trump Says He’ll Leave Business ‘In Total’ To Focus On Presidency – Marketwatch

President-elect Donald Trump said Wednesday morning he will leave his business “in total” to focus on running the country while in the White House.

In an early-morning series of tweets, Trump said he would hold a news conference with his children on Dec. 15.

Trump, a real-estate mogul, isn’t legally required to give up control of his business interests, as he noted in his tweets. But he said: “The presidency is a far more important task!”

DHS Overwhelmed By Green Card Catastrophe – Washington Free Beacon

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has issued thousands of duplicate green cards to immigrants, including many that include incorrect information and allow these individuals to stay longer than permitted in the United States, according to a new government oversight report that warns the Department of Homeland Security is incapable of tracking immigrants who may pose a security risk to the United States.

USCIS, which handles immigration cases and the distribution of green cards, was found to have produced at least 19,000 green cards during the past three years that were duplicates or contained incorrect information, according to a new report by the Department of Homeland Security’s inspector general.

During the same period, more than 200,000 green card holders reported their cards missing and an increasing number of cards were sent to incorrect addresses, posing a risk to national security.

Problems at USCIS have been increasing over the past three years. The bureau has been deemed incapable of keeping track of green cards and immigrants who have overstayed their legal time in the United States.

“In the wrong hands, Green Cards may enable terrorists, criminals, and illegal aliens to remain in the United States and access immigrant benefits,” according to the oversight report, which disclosed that green card errors cost taxpayers $1.5 million in 2015…

Trump Begins ‘Thank You Tour’ With Ohio Event This Week – The Hill
.

.
President-elect Donald Trump will begin his “thank you tour” to celebrate his stunning victory with a trip to Ohio this week.

The Thursday rally will be held in Cincinnati at 7 p.m. at U.S. Bank Arena, according to Trump’s campaign website schedule. He will be joined by Vice President-elect Mike Pence.

Trump’s second stop is tentatively scheduled for Des Moines, Iowa, in early December, transition officials told Bloomberg.

Trump defeated Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton on Nov. 8 in an upset that shook the political world.

Trump’s team said in mid-November that he would take a “victory tour” of states he won in the weeks after the election…

Report Exposes $250 Billion In Wasteful Government Spending – Daily Signal

The national debt is expected to hit $20 trillion early next year. Sen. James Lankford has a few ideas to start chipping away at it.

The Oklahoma Republican unveiled his second government waste and solutions report during a press conference Monday on Capitol Hill and Heritage Foundation event Tuesday.

Lankford’s new report, “Federal Fumbles: 100 Ways the Federal Government Dropped the Ball,” identifies $250 billion in wasteful spending. His goal is to help Congress determine funding and programs that can be streamlined.

Lankford acknowledged that his report is not comprehensive, but is meant to offer common ground solutions to wasteful government spending that would appeal to lawmakers of all partisan stripes.

“This is not about targeting Republicans, Democrats, any administration,” Lankford said. “Bureaucracy is bureaucracy, and inefficiency is present in every government. This is an issue of oversight.”

In order to significantly decrease the national debt and cut government spending, Lankford said both Congress and the Trump administration must be more engaged in oversight.

“With $19.5 trillion in debt, this is something that cannot be ignored,” Lankford said. “If we don’t get economic activity and we do not control our spending, this does not get better in the days ahead. It gets worse.”…

Donald Trump Chooses Tom Price As Health Secretary – Wall Street Journal
.

.
President-elect Donald Trump has chosen top officials for health-care policy, picking House Budget Committee Chairman Tom Price (R., Ga.) as secretary of the Health and Human Services Department, the sprawling agency that will likely dismantle Democrats’ 2010 health-care overhaul.

Mr. Trump on Tuesday also named Seema Verma, a consultant who helped Vice president elect Mike Pence negotiate a groundbreaking Medicaid deal with the Obama administration, as the head of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

Price, a 62-year-old former orthopedic surgeon, is one of several GOP physicians who sought to carve out a leading role in shaping the party’s health policy and, in particular, the party’s alternative vision to Democrats’ Affordable Care Act…

Leftists Attack Trump For Suggesting That U.S. Flag-Burning Be Banned, Yet Hillary Proposed Same Thing – Washington Examiner

Critics on Tuesday morning were quick to pan President-elect Trump’s proposal to make burning the American flag illegal, but soon after a bill began circulating on social media that Hillary Clinton introduced in 2006 to do exactly the same thing.

Clinton, then a senator from New York, reportedly opposed a constitutional amendment that would criminalize the desecration of the flag, but introduced legislation in 2005 and backed a second bill in 2006 that would criminalize flag burning.

More than half of Democrats in the Senate backed her effort, the New York Times reported at the time.

On Tuesday, Clinton supporters and members of the media argued Trump was flouting First Amendment protections of free speech by tweeting that flag-burners should face a year in jail or the loss of their citizenship.

Although one of the flag-burning measures Clinton supported failed in the Senate in June 2006, the bill earned 36 votes, mostly from Democrats in the minority…

Tufts University Student Leaders Reject Free Speech Measure, Call It ‘Unsafe’ – College Fix
.

.
A sweeping free speech resolution has been rejected by Tufts University’s student government, whose members called the effort to broaden and clarify students’ First Amendment rights “unsafe.”

Tufts has a “red light” speech-code rating from FIRE, which means it maintains at least one policy that both clearly and substantially restricts freedom of speech.

Student Jake Goldberg’s free speech resolution called for an end to campus anti-free speech rules at Tufts, including vague administrative provisos that crack down on the “use of nicknames,” “hurtful words,” “bias-fueled jokes,” “comments on an individual’s body or appearance,” “innuendos of a sexual nature,” “gender bias,” and dozens more similar examples cited in the measure…

Boom: Michigan Just Crashed Hillary’s Pity Party – Allen West

As liberals continue to whine, cry, and challenge the election results that happened several weeks ago, the state of Michigan just gave these delicate snowflakes some rather bad news.

It seems the Michigan Board of Canvassers have certified Donald Trump’s victory in the state, meaning he really, truly, irrefutably turned a blue state red.

It’s too bad folks on the left won’t suck it up and just accept their loss. That would be expecting them to act like adults, which is pretty ridiculous when you think about the fact these are the same people who color and watch puppy videos when they’re “triggered.”

According to the Washington Examiner, The board voted 4-0 to certify the state’s election results Monday afternoon, and the final tally showed Trump with a total of 2,279,543 votes, while Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton got 2,268,839, a difference of just 10,704 votes. Behind the two front-runners were Libertarian Gary Johnson at 172,136 votes and the Green Party’s Jill Stein at 51,463 votes.

Last week, the Michigan secretary of state posted vote counts certified at the county level from the contest that showed Trump with a 10,704 vote lead, but the count wasn’t official until Monday.

The state’s 4.8 million votes may soon be getting another look, following media reports of alleged hacking or tampering in three swing states, including Michigan, though there is no hard evidence of any tampering of the results…

President Asshat Tries To Push Through 98 ‘Midnight Regulations’ – Law Newz
.

.
President Obama is spending this holiday season trying to get 98 “midnight regulations” on the books before Donald Trump takes office in January. These last-minute regulations cover things such as commodities speculations, air pollution, immigration, Medicare, funding for Planned Parenthood, investment with China, and student loans. Needless to say, the Republican-led Congress and Donald Trump are a bit miffed that their imagined lame-duck isn’t nearly as lame as they’d hoped.

Before we get into the usual story about how Congress plans to block everything President Obama does, just because he’s President Obama, let’s discuss how these “midnight regulations” even work. The legislative branch of the federal government (Congress) gets to make laws. The executive branch (the president) enforces those laws…

Wisconsin Denies Request For Recount By Hand As Stein Threatens To Sue – Zero Hedge

Finally, a voice of reason emerges in Wisconsin to combat Jill Stein’s useless recount crusade. According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Wisconsin Elections Commission Chairman, Mark Thomsen, who happens to be Democrat, announced earlier that the committee would follow through with Stein’s recount request but denied a request that the recount be conducted by hand. Thomsen cited a 2011 recount that changed the overall vote margin by 300 votes as evidence that the current recount would overturn Trump’s 22,177 vote lead in the state.

Citing the results of a 2011 statewide recount that changed only 300 votes, Elections Commission chairman Mark Thomsen, a Democrat, said this presidential recount is very unlikely to change Republican Donald Trump’s win in the state.

“It may not be 22,177,” said Thomsen, referring to Trump’s win over Democrat Hillary Clinton in the vote count. “But I don’t doubt that the president-elect is going to win that.”

Thomsen dismissed Stein’s claims of problems with the vote as unfounded and misleading. But he directed his toughest criticism to Trump’s unsupported allegations that millions of people voted illegally nationwide, calling them “an insult to the people that run our elections.”

Under the plan adopted Monday, the recount would begin Thursday and could cost $1 million. Of course, we assume that Stein didn’t factor in the incremental costs associated with suing states that call her out for her ridiculous recount efforts…

Islamic Terrorism Suspected In Car-And-Knife Attack At Ohio State University – CNS
.

.
A Somali-born Ohio State University student plowed his car into a group of pedestrians on campus and then got out and began stabbing people with a butcher knife Monday before he was shot to death by a police officer. Police said they were investigating whether it was a terrorist attack.

Eleven people were hurt, one critically.

The attacker was identified as Abdul Razak Ali Artan. He was born in Somalia and was a legal permanent U.S. resident, according to a U.S. official who wasn’t authorized to discuss the case and spoke on the condition of anonymity. The FBI joined the investigation.

The details emerged after a morning of conflicting reports and confusion, created in part by a series of tweets from the university warning there was an “active shooter” on campus and students should “Run Hide Fight.”…

Florida Man Hiding In Pond Tells Deputies Their Suspect ‘Went That Way’ – UPI

Authorities in Florida said a robbery suspect found hiding in a pond told deputies he was “just fishing” and the real robber “went that way.”

The Volusia County Sheriff’s Office said deputies responded Saturday to a Family Dollar store in Deltona, where a clerk told them a man with “Loyalty” tattooed across his abdomen claimed to have a gun and demanded money.

The clerk refused the request, leading the man to flea, the sheriff’s office said.

Deputies in a sheriff’s office helicopter spotted a man walking near a pond and wading waste-deep into the water.

A group of deputies accompanied by a K9 unit located the man in the water and ordered him to raise his hands and surrender.

Sean Torres, 29, allegedly told deputies he was “just fishing” and had dropped his pole in the water.

Deputies said they questioned Torres about the robbery and he responded: “The guy who did it went that way.”

Torres was arrested, however, when deputies determined his tattoos matched those described by the store clerk. He was charged with robbery and criminal mischief.

“While in the back of a VCSO patrol car, he repeatedly shouted and threw himself against the interior, kicking the doors, damaging the vehicle and causing it to rock,” the sheriff’s office said.

Torres was jailed in lieu of $30,500 bail…

There Will Be No Recount In Pennsylvania: Jill Stein Perpetrating Election Fraud – Defense Watch
.

.
Everything you’ve been reading about a possible recount of the 2016 Presidential Election in Pennsylvania is wrong. There will be no “recount” in Pennsylvania. Book that. It is not speculation. It is legal fact. The broad spectrum of analysis from the blogosphere, Facebook and Twitter is pathetic. Seeing non-lawyer journalists mangle complicated election statutes so brazenly is not only sad but dangerous. It’s giving an emotionally triggered part of the electorate false hope. And it simultaneously creates conditions for the destabilization of the nation when hyper-emotional election expectations are thwarted, as they most certainly will be.

As for Jill Stein’s successful public cry for millions, she claims at her website that “fundraising for Pennsylvania’s voter-initiated recount” has already been complete…
