David Cameron Resigns As Prime Minister After Britain Votes Brexit – ITV
.

.
David Cameron has resigned as prime minister after Britain voted to leave the European Union.

The prime minister, who backed a Remain vote, said Britain required “fresh leadership” to negotiate the country’s exit from the EU.

“I do not think it would be right for me to be the captain that steers our country to its next destination,” he said in a statement outside Downing Street.

He promised to “steady the ship” over the coming months before stepping down in October…

SUNY Albany Race Crime Hoaxer Admits To Lies – Breitbart

A student at SUNY Albany who claimed to be a victim of a racial attack has admitted to fabricating the story – another in a long line of hate crime hoaxes.

Alexis Briggs and fellow students Ariel Aguido and Asha Burwell claimed that they were taunted with racial abuse and slurs while riding a bus in late January. In an ironic turn of events, video footage of the bus ride showed that no racial abuse had taken place.

In fact, the women themselves were charged with misdemeanor assault and with false reporting of an incident. SUNY Albany has expelled Aguido and Burwell while Briggs has received a two year suspension.

Briggs gave a tearful apology to the court, admitting to fabricating the story in order to receive a plea deal that would allow her to avoid any jail time. The student will however have to complete 100 hours of community service.

Briggs also stated that she “never anticipated the tremendous attention that would be given to this story or the far-reaching effect it would have.” Aguido and Burwell rejected plea agreements and could face up to two sentences…

Alabama Councilwoman Complains Holocaust Memorial Is Racist Because ‘It Is For Dead People’ – Raw Story

An Alabama city councilwoman made a series of outrageous – and mostly inaccurate – arguments in her attempt to claim a proposal to honor victims of the Holocaust was racist against black people.

Sheila Tyson doesn’t want the city to pay $45,500 to remove existing buildings on the site of the Birmingham Holocaust Education Center, which has raised about $500,000 to build a memorial park alongside a 9/11 memorial, reported AL.com.

“Dead is dead,” Tyson argued.

Tyson, who has previously asked the city to pay for repairs at the historically black Shadow Lawn Cemetery, said she didn’t understand why the city should help the privately funded memorial project.

“Isn’t it still for dead people,” Tyson said. “It is for dead people. Aren’t the people they are memorializing deceased?”

City Attorney Thomas Bentley, whose parents are buried in Shadow Lane, sighed and tried to explain how the black cemetery was a private entity, while the Holocaust memorial expressed the city’s remembrance.

“I’m not sure I have the vocabulary or explanatory power to indicate the distinction although it’s clear to me from a legal standpoint that there is a distinction,” Bentley said…

House Blocks Democrat Amendment To Ban People On No Fly List From Getting Guns – Young Conservatives

We have been talking a lot about how Democrats want to ban people who are on the no fly list from getting a gun.

They completely ignore the fact that the list is a complete mess.

Children and congressman routinely end up on the list and it is a terrible way to decide who should have their constitutional rights stripped away.

It also warns people who are being investigated that they are being watched by the FBI.

But Democrats don’t care about any of that.

They just want to push their own political agenda in the aftermath of a tragedy when people are feeling vulnerable.

Well, it looks like the House has struck down their plan.

From Red State:

There is no viable way to allow a person on such a list to challenge being placed on the list without divulging classified information. Both lists are fallible and subject to political manipulation. The no fly list, in particular, is useless. Toddlers and fat drunks, like Ted Kennedy, have found themselves forbidden to fly because their name is on the list. More importantly, neither of the San Bernardino shooters was on such a list…

CNN’s Tom Foreman Caught Lying In Trump-Refugees ‘Fact Check’ – Breitbart

In a segment that was billed as CNN’s “fact check” of Donald Trump’s anti-Hillary speech, CNN gave a demonstrably false presentation of U.S. immigration policy in an effort to undermine Trump’s factually correct statements.

The segment was remarkable in that it not only revealed CNN’s profound ignorance of federal immigration policy, but an examination of the segment’s transcript also reveals that CNN ignored and blatantly distorted what Trump had actually said.

CNN’s Tom Foreman accused Trump making a “false” statement about Hillary Clinton’s refugee policy when Trump statement was, in fact, true.

“The reality check team was very busy during all of this [speech],” Foreman said. “Trump attacked Clinton’s plan to increase the number of Syrian refugees taken into America.”

Foreman then played video footage of Trump’s speech in which Trump said, “Under her [Clinton’s] plan, we would admit hundreds of thousands of refugees from the most dangerous countries on Earth – with no way to screen who they are, what they are, what they believe, where they come from.”

Foreman then delved into his “analysis” of Trump’s statement:

He was talking about this in reference to the Syria program in context of his speech. So let’s look at the reality there…

Led Zeppelin Wins ‘Stairway To Heaven’ Plagiarism Trial – Entertainment Weekly
.

The song remains the same: Led Zeppelin are in the clear after a federal jury decided the band did not plagiarize their signature track, 1971’s “Stairway to Heaven.” The panel announced their unanimous decision on Thursday in a Los Angeles federal court room.

The English rockers were accused of infringing on the copyright of the instrumental track “Taurus” by the American band Spirit. Michael Skidmore, a trustee of the estate of Spirit guitarist Randy Wolfe, was the plaintiff and accused Zeppelin of lifting “Stairway’s” acoustic guitar-laden introduction from “Taurus” and sought upwards of $40 million in damages, as well as a songwriting credit for Wolfe.

But the eight-person jury ruled that even though Plant had access to “Taurus” and that Skidmore and Spirit’s estate had copyright to “Taurus,” the “original elements of Spirit’s song are not extrinsically similar” to “Stairway to Heaven.”…

Supreme Court Strikes Down Obama Executive Action On Illegal Immigration – Townhall
.

The Supreme Court voted in a 4-4 tie on United States v. Texas, which concerned the Obama administration’s DAPA program that deferred deportations of some illegal immigrants. The tie decision means that the program’s enforcement will still be blocked.

As for what’s next, that largely depends on who wins the election this November. If the Democratic candidate wins (and nominates a fellow left-leaning person to the Supreme Court), this means that the policy will likely go into place.

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said that the ruling was a vital protection of separation of powers, and that the Supreme Court made the “right call.”

“Before it could even be implemented, the President’s executive order granting de facto amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants was put on hold in court…

Baltimore Cop’s Freddie Gray Verdict Is In, And It’s A Huge Deal – Daily Caller

Circuit Judge Barry Williams handed down a not guilty verdict on all charges Thursday for Officer Caesar Goodson, one of the Baltimore cops charged in the death of Freddie Gray.

Goodson is the second of six officers to receive a verdict. So far, all have been acquitted. Goodson was charged with second-degree depraved-heart murder, assault, manslaughter, reckless endangerment, misconduct in office and two counts of vehicular manslaughter. Goodson faced the most serious charges in the case. He opted for a bench trial, which means he waived his right to a jury trial and left his fate in Williams’ hands.

The verdict strikes a major blow to the prosecution since many legal experts saw this trial as their best chance at a conviction. The prosecution’s case centered around Goodson, who they alleged gave Gray a “rough ride,” a term used to describe when an officer driving a vehicle makes sudden jerks, turns and stops to cause a passenger to slide around in the back. The state alleged Goodson’s rough ride caused Gray’s fatal spinal injury.

The prosecution suffered a big setback when their expert witness balked on cross examination earlier in the case. While grilled by the defense, former Baltimore City police commander Stanford Franklin couldn’t say for sure that the driver gave Gray a rough ride.

Goodson’s attorney pressed Franklin and directly asked him, “Is it not your contention that officer Goodson engaged in a rough ride?”

Franklin answered with, “I can’t say,” a damning moment for a prosecution that had largely rested on the rough ride theory…

The Democrats Destroy Medicare – Betsy McCaughey

Under the guise of “reform,” President Obama is dismantling Medicare – dooming seniors to needless pain and disability and shortening their lives.

The stakes are high, because Medicare and the access it allows to medical innovations have transformed aging. Before Medicare, older people languished in nursing homes or wheel chairs with crippling illnesses. Now, seniors dodge that fate, thanks to hip and knee replacements, cataract operations, heart procedures – all paid for by Medicare.

Stunning findings just published in the American Journal of Public Health show that a man turning 65 can expect to live almost five years longer than his counterpart in 1970. Five years of extra life, and almost all of it in good health. What a priceless gift.

A gift Obama is snatching away. His so-called Medicare reforms make it harder for seniors to get joint replacements. His new payment rules shortchange doctors, discouraging them from accepting Medicare. New ER rules clobber seniors with bills for “observation care.” Under ObamaCare, hospitals get bonuses for spending less per senior, despite having higher death rates and infection rates.

Expect the Medicare Trustees’ annual report, due out today, to ignore these damaging changes.

The latest assault is 962 pages of rules with the acronym MACRA that dictate how doctors treat patients. The precious minutes with your doctor are wasted completing mandatory reports for the federal government, and your ailment gets short shrift…

IRS Finally Reveals List Of Tea Party Groups Targeted For Extra Scrutiny – Washington Times

More than three years after it admitted to targeting tea party groups for intrusive scrutiny, the IRS has finally released a near-complete list of the organizations it snagged in a political dragnet.

The tax agency filed the list last month as part of a court case after a series of federal judges, fed up with what they said was the agency’s stonewalling, ordered it to get a move on. The case is a class-action lawsuit, so the list of names is critical to knowing the scope of those who would have a claim against the IRS.

But even as it answers some questions, the list raises others, including exactly when the targeting stopped, and how broadly the tax agency drew its net when it went after nonprofits for unusual scrutiny.

The government released names of 426 organizations. Another 40 were not released as part of the list because they had already opted out of being part of the class-action suit.

That total is much higher than the 298 groups the IRS‘ inspector general identified back in May 2013, when investigators first revealed the agency had been subjecting applications to long – potentially illegal – delays, and forcing them to answer intrusive questions about their activities. Tea party and conservative groups said they was the target of unusually heavy investigations and longer delays,

Edward D. Greim, the lawyer who’s pursuing the case on behalf of NorCal Tea Party Patriots and other members of the class, said the list also could have ballooned toward the end of the targeting as the IRS, once it knew it was being investigated, snagged more liberal groups in its operations to try to soften perceptions of political bias…

Secretary Without Honor – Phillip Jennings

Apologists for Hillary Clinton’s alleged criminal mishandling of classified documents say that it doesn’t matter, that she really did nothing wrong, or nothing significant. But the real question is not so much what she did as how she has responded to being found out.

Once during the mid-1960s when I was on active duty in the Marine Corps, I was the air liaison officer for a battalion of Marines aboard 11 ships in the Mediterranean. As the air officer and a senior captain, I had a rotating responsibility for the nuclear code book, kept in the safe in the operations room of the lead amphibious squadron command ship. I shared that duty with another captain, a squared away young man, liked by all he commanded and the son of a very high-ranking Marine.

On the day our ships were leaving the Mediterranean, we met the new amphibious squadron near Gibraltar and made preparations to transfer security codes and other sensitive material to the incoming Marine battalion. The young captain was on duty and went to the operations office to pick up the code book. He was alone in the office. He removed the code book and placed it on the desk while closing the safe. In a rushed moment, he stepped across the passageway to retrieve something he needed from his quarters. Seconds later, he stepped back into the operations office and found the operations sergeant having just entered, looking down at the code book.

Against all regulations, the code book had been out of the safe and unattended. It mattered not that it was unattended for only seconds, that the ship was 5 miles at sea, or that it was certain no one unauthorized had seen the code. The captain could have explained this to the operations sergeant. He could have told the sergeant that he “would take care of it.” He could have hinted that his high-ranking dad could smooth it over.

But the Marine Corps’ values are honor, courage and commitment. Honor is the bedrock of our character. The young captain could not ask the sergeant to betray his duty to report the infraction, no matter how small. Instead, the captain simply said, “Let’s go see the colonel.”…

Philippine President-Elect Urges Public To Kill Drug Dealers – Associated Press

The Philippine president-elect has encouraged the public to help him in his war against crime, urging citizens with guns to shoot and kill drug dealers who resist arrest and fight back in their neighborhoods.

In a nationally televised speech late Saturday, Rodrigo Duterte told a huge crowd in the southern city of Davao that Filipinos who help him battle crime will be rewarded.

“Please feel free to call us, the police, or do it yourself if you have the gun – you have my support,” Duterte said, warning of an extensive illegal drug trade that involves even the country’s police.

If a drug dealer resists arrest or refuses to be brought to a police station and threatens a citizen with a gun or a knife, “you can kill him,” Duterte said. “Shoot him and I’ll give you a medal.”

The 71-year-old Duterte won the May 9 presidential election on a bold promise to end crime and corruption within six months of the start of his presidency. That vow resonated among crime-weary Filipinos, though police officials considered it campaign rhetoric that was impossible to accomplish.

Human rights watchdogs have expressed alarm that his anti-crime drive may lead to widespread rights violations.

Duterte, a longtime Davao mayor, has been suspected of playing a role in many killings of suspected criminals in his city by motorcycle-riding assassins known as the “Davao death squads,” but human rights watchdogs say he has not been criminally charged because nobody has dared to testify against him in court…

Bulgarian Civilian Vigilante Groups Hunting Migrants – Daily Insider

A group of men in Bulgaria roam the countryside helping plant trees, participating in torch light parades on national holidays and tracking down illegal migrants to turn into the Bulgarian authorities. The group call themselves the “organization for the protection of Bulgarian citizens,” and were founded by Hristo Atanasov, a cook and self described patriot, Die Welt reports.

Atanasov leads the group who go out on weekends donning military fatigues to go on what they call “healthy walks” through the nearby beaches and mountains close to his home in the coastal town of Burgas. Atanasov claims that the group likes to go to the area because of the natural beauty but also because it is a major hotspot for migrants who have come across the border from neighbouring Turkey.

The self styled patriot describes the process saying that the group often spots the people smugglers first, “they run 200 to 300 metres ahead to see if the coast is clear,” he said. If the migrants see him and his men they often run away, “they think we are the police,” Atanasov remarked.

The patrol leader said that he is usually joined by around 30 more men at any given weekend. The group has so far managed to capture more than 50 migrants crossing the Bulgarian-Greek border and they bring them all directly to Bulgarian police.

The group believes they are the first line of defence from what they call the “migrant invasion,” and regard themselves as merely doing their duty to their country as self appointed border protectors. Their work is reminiscent of protests by the hipster-right Identitarians who built their own fences along the Austrian-Slovenian border when the government refused to control the migrant flow last year…

Clinton For-Profit Education Scandal Dwarfs Trump U – WorldNetDaily

Bill and Hillary Clinton’s attack on Donald Trump over Trump University could invite increased scrutiny of the Clintons’ involvement in a for-profit education scandal in which a company that runs shell colleges paid Bill Clinton $16.5 million to be its pitchman.

While the Clintons were collecting millions, Hillary Clinton’s State Department funneled at least $55 million to a group run by the college company, Laureate Education Inc., according to Peter Schweizer’s book “Clinton Cash” as Breitbart reported.

Clinton abruptly resigned from his post as “honorary chancellor” in April 2015 when the disclosure was publicized.

Documents uncovered by Washington-based watchdog Judicial Watch show Laureate Education paid the former president through a “shell corporation” pass-through account that evidently passed State Department scrutiny while Hillary was secretary of state.

Further, in a story showing how for-profit colleges encourage huge student debt, Forbes found the biggest borrower on the for-profit college list is Laureate Education’s Walden University, whose grad students borrowed $756 million in 2014.

More Than One-Third Of Refugees In Vermont Test Positive For Tuberculosis – Vermont Watchdog

Data from the Vermont Department of Health show that more than one-third of refugees resettled in Vermont test positive for tuberculosis.

Since 2013, about 900 refugees admitted to the Green Mountain State have been tested for tuberculosis, a potentially fatal infectious disease affecting the lungs. Of that number, 318 refugees, or 35.4 percent, tested positive.

Watchdog.org obtained the health data on Wednesday following reporting by Stateline that the disease may be making a comeback in the United States.

Refugees brought to the United States undergo TB tests as part of comprehensive health screenings. State health departments track the data to monitor cases and protect against public health crises.

According to IGRA (Interferon-Gamma Release Assays) blood test results from 2013 to the present, the highest percentage of incoming refugees to Vermont infected with TB occurred in 2013. That year, 108 refugees out of 248 tested, or 43.6 percent, showed positive for TB.

Test results showed slight improvement in subsequent years, with 34 percent of incoming refugees having TB in 2014 and 32 percent showing positive in 2015. Children under age 5 are excluded from the results, as they undergo tuberculin skin tests, or TSTs…
