Trump Cuts More U.S. Debt For A Longer Period Of Time Than Any President In History – Gateway Pundit

President Trump now can claim the longest and largest decrease of U.S. Federal Debt in U.S. history.

When President Trump was inaugurated on January 20, 2017 the amount of U.S. Federal Debt owed both externally and internally was over $19 Trillion at $19,947,304,555,212. As of August 17th the amount of U.S. Debt had decreased by more than $100 Billion to $19,845,188,460,167.

No President in U.S. history has ever cut the amount of U.S. Debt by this amount and no President has resided over a debt cut like this ever.

History buffs may say that this is incorrect because President Bill Clinton and President George W. Bush oversaw U.S. Debt cuts over a period of a few years after the Republican Congress led by House Speaker Newt Gingrich forced Clinton into signing a balanced budget. We thought the same, but our analysis determined that this is actually not correct.

Congress did push Clinton into signing a balanced budget but the amount of U.S. debt during this period actually increased…

Vermont Attorney General T.J. Donovan said his office has concluded an investigation into the invoices and billing practices of Dr. Jonathan Gruber, an economic consultant who contracted with the state to provide policy expertise, research and economic modeling for Vermont’s abandoned single-payer healthcare system.

Former Gov. Peter Shumlin sought to create the single-payer system, known as Green Mountain Care, but eventually walked away from the plan after determining it would cost too much. The attorney general’s office’s began the investigation into Gruber’s billing after receiving a referral by State Auditor Doug Hoffer.

Donovan said Thursday his office and Gruber reached an agreement to settle the state’s potential legal claim that Gruber submitted false claims to the state under Vermont’s Civil False Claims Act…

Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz: Russia Investigation ‘Endangers Democracy’ – The Hill

Attorney Alan Dershowitz says special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia “endangers Democracy.”

“The idea of trying to create crimes just because we disagree with [Trump] politically, and target him, really endangers democracy. [It] reminds me of what the head of the KGB said to Stalin: ‘Show me the man, and I will find you the crime,'” Dershowitz told John Catsimatidis on New York’s AM 970 in an interview that aired on Sunday.

“[This is] where things happen in darkness and secrecy. The American public doesn’t learn about it,” he said, accusing the investigators of not sharing information with the public. “This exactly the wrong way to approach the problem of Russia’s attempt to influence American election. We do not know what is going on. We get leaks, but the leaks are selective leaks.”

The Harvard law scholar, who is an opinion contributor to The Hill, also criticized former FBI Director James Comey, whom he called one of the “worst offenders” of leaks that have encouraged other members of government to leak classified information…

Unshaven and working from home in cargo shorts as he moves into “Bannon the Barbarian” mode, Steve Bannon is thinking bigger than Breitbart. Axios’ Jonathan Swan hears Bannon has told friends he sees a massive opening to the right of Fox News, raising the possibility that he’s going to start a network.

Bannon’s friends are speculating about whether it will be a standalone TV network, or online streaming only.

Before his death in May, Roger Ailes had sent word to Bannon that he wanted to start a channel together. Bannon loved the idea: He believes Fox is heading in a squishy, globalist direction as the Murdoch sons assume more power.

Antifa Terrorist Stabs Innocent Man Because Of His Haircut – Daily Mail

A Colorado man says he was slashed after an anti-fascist mistakenly identified him as a neo-Nazi, because of his haircut.

Joshua Witt, 26, took to his Facebook page to post about the frightening incident in Sheridan, and says he’s luck to be alive.

He says he has no tattoos or anything else that would indicate he’s a neo-Nazi, but says his friends have explained, it’s his haircut.

Witt’s cut is similar to what people have identified as the neo-Nazi cut after countless images have flashed on TV and online from the deadly Charlottesville, Virginia protests. His cut is long-on-top, buzzed-on-the-sides.

Witt wrote ‘Sooooooo apparently I look like a neo-nazi and got stabbed for it, luckily I put my hands up to stop it so he only stabbed my hand.’

The ruling, which ended months of litigation suspended since July 26, contradicted Russia’s Federal Law on Extremism, signed by Vladimir Putin in 2015 that prohibits the Bible from being labeled extremist literature.

Court Says Arkansas Can Block Medicaid Funding For Planned Parenthood – The Federalist

On Wednesday, Arkansas became one of only a handful of states to block Medicaid funding for Planned Parenthood, despite several years of whistleblower video evidence depicting the nation’s largest abortion provider violating federal law and trafficking in human body parts.

Politico reports “The ruling Wednesday by the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals vacates preliminary injunctions from a federal judge that required the state to continue Medicaid payments following legal challenges brought by three patients challenging Gov. Asa Hutchinson’s 2015 decision to end the state’s Medicaid contract with the women’s health group.”

Although approximately 15 states have recently attempted to defund Planned Parenthood, few have succeeded. Alabama and Missouri ended their Medicaid contracts with Planned Parenthood, and Ohio and Wisconsin restricted how Medicaid could fund the organization.

Many states moved to defund the Planned Parenthood after the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) unveiled a series of videos which revealed the abortion provider was illegally selling parts of aborted babies…

“Colossal Fraud”: Lawsuit Accuses Poland Spring Of Selling Groundwater – Zero Hedge

Ever wonder if that bottled mineral water you just spent several dollars on is really mineral water? According to a bombshell new lawsuit filed this week, at least in the case of one company it isn’t.

The lawsuit was filed on Tuesday in a Connecticut federal court and accuses Nestle Waters North America Inc. of a “colossal fraud perpetrated against American consumers” the Bangor Daily News reports.

Obamacare Enrollment Program Signed Up A Fraction Of Those Who Canceled Coverage In 2017 – Washington Free Beacon

The Affordable Care Act Enrollment Assistance Program helped 14,500 individuals enroll in the Obamacare exchanges, which represented only 0.007 percent of the 1.9 million individuals who decided to drop their Obamacare plan in 2017.

The Obama administration established the Enrollment Assistance Program, which created storefronts and hired workers to help customers enroll in the Obamacare exchanges and obtain coverage.

The government spent $22.4 million on the program and created contracts with two companies, Cognosante and CSRA, to implement their mission. The Trump administration decided to stop the program this year by not renewing the contracts.

The program was able to enroll 14,500 individuals in the Obamacare exchanges during the 2017 open enrollment period. This means the administration paid about $1,545 for each person the program helped sign up…

Home Depot Employee Thwarts Kidnapping, Gets Fired For His Efforts – TellMeNow

Dillon Reagan helped prevent a kidnapping at the Home Depot store where he worked for four years. Some might consider him to be a hero, but Home Depot didn’t. They fired the 32-year-old.

A co-worker yelled for help because there was a violent dispute in the parking lot. Dillan called 911 and headed out to the parking lot.

A woman outside the Portland, Oregon store was yelling, “Somebody help me, please! He’s stealing my kid, he’s kidnapping my child!”

The 911 dispatcher asked him to follow the man who had taken the child. Three blocks later, police arrived and arrested the suspect the Home Depot employee was following. And that’s why he was fired.

Apparently, Dillon had an argument with a co-worker in the same month. Home Depot somehow viewed saving a customer’s child as an infraction as well.

After the local news started covering the story, Home Depot did an about-face and offered to rehire Dillon…

3 Knife-Wielding Terrorists Shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ Stab At Least 6 People In Finland – Daily Mirror

Armed police have opened fire on knife-wielding attacker who witnesses claim was ‘screaming Allahu Akbar’ as they went on a rampage ‘randomly stabbing people’ in Finland.

Two people have died in what people initially believed to be a terror-related incident – although police say it’s too early to be certain and said this evening it is NOT currently being investigated as such.

Police earlier said “several people have been knifed” in the centre of Turku this afternoon – including ‘a woman and a baby’ in a pushchair, according to local media.

Early confused reports suggested there may have been as many as three attackers – police would only say tonight that they were looking into whether more people were involved. Armed police shot the attacker in the leg before detaining him around 20 minutes after the alarm was raised.

Canadian Elementary School’s “Inclusiveness Training” Needs 15-Letter Acronym To Cover Everyone – I Have The Truth

LGGBDTTTIQQAAPP. No, I didn’t fall asleep on my keyboard. Our liberal friends to the north, led by the epitome of radical progressiveness, Justin Trudeau, are moving more and more to the left. And now, they are bringing it to their elementary schools. These 15 letters encompass what children in Canada will be taught in the name of tolerance.

Elementary students haven’t even hit puberty yet and for some reason the left is bound and determined to make sure they understand all of their options when it comes to sexual behaviors. It is sick and disgusting and has no place in school. Every one of those letters stands for a group of people defined solely by their sexual behaviors or identity. How is this appropriate for elementary kids?

Trump Shuts Down Obama-Era Central American Minor Protection Program – Fox News

The Trump administration on Wednesday shut down yet another Obama-era program – this one created to give Central American minors fleeing poverty and gang violence in their homeland temporary legal status in the United States.

The “CAM parole” program was established in 2014 in response to a surprise spike in the number of unaccompanied minors and families entering the country from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador. The program allowed minors who did not make the cut for “refugee status” to enter the U.S. on a two-year, renewable parole if they had a parent already legally in the country.

According to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, which oversaw the project, 1,465 minors have been granted entry under the parole program. Another 2,714 people had been conditionally approved to enter the U.S. but have now lost the opportunity.

The program’s future seemed to be in jeopardy in February when the Department of Homeland Security froze it…

Two Former Wasserman Schultz IT Aides Indicted For Conspiracy Against U.S. – Daily Caller

A federal grand jury Thursday indicted two former information technology (IT) aides of Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz – Pakistani-born Imran Awan and his wife Hina Alvi – on four counts of conspiracy in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.

The FBI arrested Awan at Dulles International Airport July 24 as he was preparing to board a flight to Pakistan. When his wife Alvi left the U.S. for Pakistan in March, federal authorities found more than $12,000 in cash hidden in a suitcase. She had withdrawn the couple’s three children from local schools and does not intend to return to the U.S., according to the FBI.

“Defendants AWAN and ALVI did unlawfully, willfully, and knowingly conspire, combine, confederate, and agree with each other to commit offenses against the United States,” including bank fraud, false statements, and unlawful monetary transactions, the indictment said.

Feds Spend $438,699 Studying If ‘Gender Norms’ Make LGBTQ People Get Drunk – Washington Free Beacon

The National Institutes of Health is spending over $400,000 studying whether gender norms of masculinity and femininity lead LGBTQ individuals to drink too much.

Trying to find the “meanings of intoxication” of sexual and gender minorities is the central question of a study that was awarded in late July.

The project will “examine the extent to which gendered norms shape risky drinking practices for sexual and gender minority (SGM) young adults,” according to the grant for the study.

The grant states that alcohol is an “integral component of bars and clubs.”

“Alcohol has played a central role for SGM by facilitating exploration of sexuality and gender, coping with minority stress, trauma, and stigma and serving as an integral component of bars and clubs for SGM young adults,” the grant states. “Given this central role, it is not surprising that problematic alcohol use, including heavy episodic drinking (HED) and intoxication, and alcohol-related problems are significant issues for SGM young adults.”…

How House Conservatives Plan To Revive Obamacare Repeal, And Why It Could Work – Daily Signal

It’s time to “put the screws” to Republican lawmakers who promised to repeal Obamacare, one House member says, and that’s why he supports reviving a successful 2015 attempt to get rid of the health care law.

“We certainly can’t give up,” Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., said in a phone interview with The Daily Signal.

Gaetz was explaining why he decided to back a small caucus of House conservatives in its strategy to force a floor vote on a bill mirroring the Obamacare repeal passed in December 2015.

The House Freedom Caucus announced Friday its plan to collect the 218 signatures required on a “discharge petition” to pull that legislation out of committee.

The Daily Signal heard from eight House members on how they stand on the strategy.

“I signed the discharge petition because the things we have done so far to appease moderates in our party haven’t worked,” Gaetz, who is not a member of the Freedom Caucus, said in the interview. “So, maybe we should take a conservative approach going forward. We certainly can’t give up.”…

California Bill: 1 Year In Jail For Using Wrong Transgender Pronoun – Breitbart

A new bill being considered by the California State Senate would punish people who “willfully and repeatedly” refuse “to use a transgender resident’s preferred name or pronouns” in a public health, retirement or housing institution.

The bill, SB 219, was proposed by State Sen. Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco). It includes several other provisions that require a health facility, for example, to honor the gender identity of a patient, meaning that the patient must be admitted to a room that comports with his or her chosen gender; allowed to use whatever bathroom he or she wants to use; and wear whatever clothing or cosmetics he or she decides to wear. It has gone through several amendments.

Putrid Waters – John Perazzo

There are many worthless deceivers from both major parties in the U.S. Congress – individuals whose principal talent is to screw over the American public while enriching themselves and basking obscenely in the glow of the political limelight they crave even more than life itself. But no one better fits this description than Los Angeles-based Congresswoman Maxine Waters, who has been secreting her special brand of racist, anti-American bile into the House of Representatives for more than a quarter of a century.

In recent months, Waters has experienced something of a resurgence in her popularity among leftists. In honor of her 79th birthday this Tuesday, for instance, Elle magazine lauded Waters not only as “a beacon of hope” in “these dark times,” but also as “a pop culture icon” who is “telling it like it is to anyone who has sense enough to listen.” MSN.com crowed: “It’s Rep.

“Antifa” and the “Black Lives Matter” regularly describe themselves as “anti-fascist” and “anti-racist,” a self-description Romney has accepted and forwarded.

Romney’s view is ubiquitous across the left-wing and Democrat-aligned news media; Tuesday’s presser with President Donald Trump saw MSNBC’s Hallie Jackson ask Trump about moral comparisons between white nationalists and their neo-Marxist detractors:

Meet Capitan, The German Shepherd Who Has Stood By His Owner’s Grave For The Past 10 years – Daily Mail

A loyal dog has kept vigil at his dead owner’s graveside for more than 10 years after the man passed away in Argentina.

Capitan the German shepherd has spent virtually every day sitting beside the grave of his late master Miguel Guzmلn since he died in 2006.

And it seems the 15-year-old dog intends to remain faithful to his last, as he continues his ritual despite being almost totally blind and barely able to walk.

Cemetery workers, who feed and care for Capitan, told Oddity Central that it seems ‘as if he is waiting for the day when they will finally be reunited.’

Mr Guzmلn bought the dog as a pet for son Damian, then 13 years old, back in 2015 before dying suddenly the following year.

The dog’s vigil began the day after Mr Guzmلn’s funeral, when he went missing from the family home in Cordoba…

Chelsea Handler, Who Calls Trump A Nazi, Finds Out Her Grandfather Was A Nazi – Your News Wire

Chelsea Handler, whose favorite pastime is shouting abuse at conservatives on Twitter, often calling them Nazis, was just informed on TV that her grandfather was an actual Nazi. In a new episode of TLC’s Who Do You Think You Are, Chelsea Handler discovers exactly what role her grandfather, Karl Stoecker, played in World War 2, and the history of her family.

Quivering and shaking after being told the news, Handler traces his path from Nazi soldier to American immigrant through documents and interviews with sources familiar with her family’s history. Handler’s story is made all the more compelling by the fact that was she raised Jewish in a family of faith.

‘My father, I guess, made a deal with my mother when they had children that they were gonna be raised Jewish,’ Handler says. ‘So I connect with my Judaism, or the Jewish side of my family, more than anything else.‘

Guam Radio Stations Spark Terror By Accidentally Broadcasting Nuclear Missile Warning Just Days After North Korea Threatened To Attack Island – The Sun

Two radio stations on the Pacific island of Guam are in hot water after accidentally broadcasting a missile warning klaxon – sparking fears of a North Korean nuke attack.

The civil danger warning message was mistakenly broadcast because of “human error” just after midnight today by both the KTWG and KSTO radio stations.

The broadcast alert came just days after noisy neighbour Kim Jong-un threatened to fire four Hwasong nuclear missiles in the direction of the American island territory.

The alarm read: “A broadcast station or cable system has issued a civil danger warning for the following countries/areas: Guam; at 12:25 a.m. on Aug. 15, 2017, effective until 12:40 a.m. Message from KTWGKSTO.”

American Bar Association Wants To Let Illegal Aliens Practice Law – Law Newz

On Monday, The American Bar Association’s House of Delegates passed a resolution demanding that Congress let undocumented immigrants practice law. The bar suggests that lawmakers should add this block of text to 8 U.S.C. 5 § 1621(d):

A state court vested with exclusive authority to regulate admission to the bar may, by rule, order, or other affirmative act, permit an undocumented alien seeking legal status to obtain a professional license to practice law in that jurisdiction.

This wouldn’t require state courts to license undocumented lawyers, but it would make it clear that the federal government won’t get in the way.

It will be a huge surprise if this move succeeds under the current administration. Republicans, who have a reputation for pushing stricter immigration laws than Democrats, maintain a (slight) majority in Congress. And then there’s the president. Donald Trump‘s policies don’t tend to favor the undocumented. Immigration and Customs Enforcement have boasted that arrest numbers for both criminal and non-criminal immigrants recently skyrocketed thanks to new executive orders…

Turns Out The Charlottesville ‘Unite The Right’ Organizer Was An ‘Occupy Wall Street’ Activist And Obama Supporter – DC Whispers

That’s right, Kessler didn’t start his white nationalist activism until after Donald Trump won the White House. Prior to that it appears he participated in the far left/socialist Occupy Wall Street movement as noted by the far-left, George Soros-funded Southern Poverty Law Center

Corrupt Koskinen’s IRS Rehires 213 Employees Ousted For Falsifying Documents, Avoiding Taxes, Other Offenses – Daily Signal

The Internal Revenue Service rehired 213 employees who ducked taxes, falsified documents, were convicted of theft, or made unauthorized use of taxpayer data, an inspector general’s report says.

The Office of Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration, which also first discovered the IRS’ targeting of conservative groups in 2013, examined the agency’s hiring from January 2015 through March 2016.

For these 15 months, the IRS official in charge was Commissioner John Koskinen, an appointee of President Barack Obama.

House Republicans for months sought to impeach Koskinen for obstructing a congressional probe into the agency’s targeting of the applications for tax-exempt status made by nonprofit tea party and conservative groups.

“Given the substantial threat of identity theft and the magnitude of sensitive information that the IRS holds, hiring employees of high integrity is essential to maintaining public trust in tax administration and safeguarding taxpayer information,” the inspector general’s report says…

U.S. Duped By ‘Monumental’ Lie About Charlottesville – WorldNetDaily

Lee as long as racist Democrats continue to be honored throughout the country, contends Dinesh D’Souza, author of the sensational historical expose “The Big Lie: Exposing The Nazi Roots Of The Far Left,”

D’Souza blasted the national media and Charlottesville officials for creating a disastrous conflict based on a lie.

“Let’s start with the fact this whole thing was kicked off because of an attempt to take down a monument to Robert E. Lee,” D’Souza told WND. “Here’s the irony: Robert E. Lee was the most decorated soldier in the U.S. Army. He was a man of unimpeachable integrity. Lincoln offered him command of the Union Army, but Lee refused only because his loyalty was to Virginia. Lee opposed both secession and slavery.

China Implements UN Sanctions Against North Korea As Trump Trade Probe Looms – Fox News

Trump has sought China’s help in dealing with North Korea, as China has remained one of the last defenders of dictator Kim Jong Un and could apply enormous financial pressure should it turn on the North Korean leader.

But in recent months, Trump has grown increasingly wary of getting any substantial aid from China, leading to the trade probe, as Axios has reported. Trump, as a presidential candidate, heavily criticized China, only to initially soften his tone upon winning the White House…

One Easy Way Democrats Can Stop Neo-Nazis – Daniel Greenfield

Hitler, too, was a socialist who headed the National Socialist Party and in fact changed the name of the German Workers Party to make it the National Socialist German Workers Party.

How, then, did progressives in America re-define fascism and Nazism as phenomena of the right? This sleight-of-hand occurred after World War II, once fascism and Nazism were discredited with the reputation of Holocaust.

North Korea’s “Not Quite” ICBM Can’t Hit The Lower 48 States – Bulletin Of The Atomic Scientists

On July 3, 2017, while Americans were preparing for the 241st celebration of the Declaration of Independence, a lone rocket rose from North Korea on a near-vertical trajectory.

After five to six minutes of powered flight, the second stage of the missile shut down and coasted to an altitude of about 2,720 kilometers. It then fell back to Earth, reentering the atmosphere above the Sea of Japan some 900 kilometers to the east of where it had launched.

The rocket’s upper stage coasted in freefall for about 32 minutes, and the overall time-of-flight, from launch to atmospheric reentry, was about 37 minutes. The launch occurred at 8:39 p.m., United States’ Eastern time. Within hours, the news of the launch was trumpeted by the U.S. mainstream press: North Korea had flown an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), a missile that could carry nuclear warheads to Anchorage, Alaska, and to the continental United States as well!…

Trump Lawyer Slams Special Counsel For ‘Gross Abuse’ In Manafort Raid, Challenges Warrant – Fox News

A top lawyer for President Trump slammed the special counsel’s office over the FBI raid of former campaign manager Paul Manafort’s Virginia home, accusing investigators of committing a “gross abuse of the judicial process” for the sake of “shock value” – and employing tactics normally seen “in Russia not America.”

Trump attorney John Dowd leveled the complaints in an email sent to a Wall Street Journal reporter who wrote about the Manafort raid. The email was obtained by Fox News.

The email reflects Trump’s legal team moving to protect the president, amid speculation that the raid could be part of a broader effort to squeeze Manafort for information on Trump.

Dowd, in his note, questioned the validity of the search warrant itself, calling it an “extraordinary invasion of privacy.” Dowd said Manafort already was looking to cooperate with congressional committees and said the special counsel never requested the materials from Manafort…

Federal Judge Orders State Department To Track Down Hillary’s Benghazi Emails – Washington Free Beacon

Nine months after Hillary Clinton was defeated by Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election, a federal judge is ordering the State Department to make another attempt in locating Clinton’s missing emails about the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack.

U.S. District Court Judge Amit Mehta ruled Tuesday that the State Department did not do enough to “track down messages Clinton may have sent about the assault on the U.S. diplomatic compound on Sept. 11, 2012 – an attack that killed four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya,” Politico reported:

In response to Freedom of Information Act requests, State searched the roughly 30,000 messages Clinton turned over to her former agency at its request in December 2014 after officials searching for Benghazi-related records realized she had used a personal email account during her four-year tenure as secretary…

Hearing Loss Of U,S, Diplomats In Cuba Blamed On Covert Sonic Device – Breitbart

The two-year-old U.S. diplomatic relationship with Cuba was roiled Wednesday by what U.S. officials say was a string of bizarre incidents that left a group of American diplomats in Havana with severe hearing loss attributed to a covert sonic device.

In the fall of 2016, a series of U.S. diplomats began suffering unexplained losses of hearing, according to officials with knowledge of the investigation into the case. Several of the diplomats were recent arrivals at the embassy, which reopened in 2015 as part of former President Barack Obama’s reestablishment of diplomatic relations with Cuba.

Some of the diplomats’ symptoms were so severe that they were forced to cancel their tours early and return to the United States, officials said. After months of investigation, U.S. officials concluded that the diplomats had been exposed to an advanced device that operated outside the range of audible sound and had been deployed either inside or outside their residences. It was not immediately clear if the device was a weapon used in a deliberate attack, or had some other purpose…

Toxic Feminism Has Now Infected Yet Another Lucrative Industry – Daily Caller

In the world of YA fiction, sci-fi, and fantasy, mobs of social justice culture cops have taken to bullying authors and publishers whom they deem “problematic,” which may affect the creative output – as well as the bottom line – of independent writers.

In an in-depth feature for Vulture, Kat Rosenfield highlighted the bullying controversy surrounding Laurie Forest’s debut fantasy novel “The Black Witch,” which is under fire for racist content. Reception for the novel had been widely positive prior to its release, but a 9,000-word review from Shauna Sinyard, a blogger and self-described “queer author assistant for hire” (in her now-deleted Twitter profile) killed the hype when it gained traction through social media…

Trump Has Eliminated 11,000 Federal Jobs So Far – Truthfeed

President Trump is keeping yet another BIG campaign promise: draining the swamp!

So far, Trump has already eliminated 11,000 federal jobs, which is the exact opposite of Obama who added thousands of federal jobs.

Of course, the swamp is still rife with Obama holdovers that need to be purged, but it’s a start.

From The Blaze

The Government Executive reported Friday that in its first six months, the Trump administration has slashed nearly 11,000 federal jobs, reversing a trend from the Obama administration that saw the number of federal workers continually increase.

The July jobs report showed that 2,700 federal jobs were cut that month, bringing the total number of jobs cut since Trump assumed the White House to 10,700.

The report was huge for the Trump administration because it also showed that more than 1 million new private-sector jobs have been created since Trump was inaugurated in January…

UAW Files Federal Complaints After Nissan Workers Overwhelmingly Reject Unionization – Washington Free Beacon

The United Auto Workers union has turned to federal labor regulators to boost its campaign in the south after workers overwhelmingly rejected its bid to unionize a Mississippi plant.

Nissan workers in Canton voted 2,244 to 1,307 against unionization, dealing a blow to the UAW’s bid to establish a footprint in right to work Mississippi. The union filed a slew of unfair labor practice complaints to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) as the two-day secret ballot election drew to a close on Friday. The complaints allege that the company’s management violated federal labor law by threatening to close the plant or otherwise cut wages, benefits, or jobs if workers voted to join the union.

“We’re disappointed but not surprised by the outcome in Canton,” UAW Treasurer Gary Casteel said in a release. “Despite claiming for years to be neutral on the question of a union, Nissan waged one of the most illegal and unethical anti-union campaigns that I’ve seen in my lifetime. Clearly, Nissan will not honor workers’ right to be free of coercion and intimidation without a binding court order requiring the company to stop.”…

The Home School Legal Defense Association this week praised the recent decision by the House Judicial Committee to advance H.R. 391, the Asylum Reform and Border Protection Act of 2017.

The bill would grant asylum to homeschooling families such as the Romeikes, who were under threat of being forcibly returned to Germany by the Obama administration.

A U.S. court granted the homeschooling family asylum, but Obama administration lawyers appealed the ruling, and it was overturned.

In Germany, authorities likely would pursue jail sentences for the parents for homeschooling their children.

Immigration Judge Lawrence O. Burman had found that the oppression the Romeikes faced is “repellent to everything we believe as Americans.” But since the revocation of the ruling, the family has lived under an indefinite order of supervision, which prevents them from obtaining permanent residency…

Obamacare Just Got A One-Two Punch Of Bad News – Business Insider

.

.
Two high-profile insurers said they would make changes to their Obamacare-related business next year, adding to the uncertainty surrounding the future of the law formally known as the Affordable Care Act.

Molina Healthcare said it would exit the Obamacare individual insurance exchanges in Utah and Wisconsin due to lagging financial performance.

“Looking back on our involvement in Wisconsin and Utah, the populations in those states were probably not significant enough to move the needle for the company in a positive way,” CEO Joseph White said during the company earnings call Wednesday. “The cost experience certainly moved it in a negative way. But, frankly, I think the markets there were just so small as to just not offer a lot of upside.”…

Massachusetts Registry Of Motor Vehicles Employees Accused Of Making Fake IDs For Illegal Aliens, Fraudulently Registering Them To Vote In Boston – MassLive

Four state Registry of Motor Vehicle clerks along with two other people were arrested Wednesday after authorities say they were making false identifications through the registry and selling them to people living in the country illegally, some of whom had been deported in the past.

Some of those phony licenses and identifications were used to fraudulently register to vote in Boston, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Evelyn Medina, 56, of Boston; Annette Gracia, 37, of Boston; Kimberly Jordan, 33, of Randolph; David Brimage, 46, of Boston; Bivian Yohanny Brea, 41, of Boston; and a 32-year-old man identified as John Doe were all charged in federal court with aggravated identity theft.

FOIA Dump Reveals Collusion Between Lynch, FBI And Media To Bury Clinton Meeting – Zero Hedge
.

Back on June 29, 2016, Obama’s Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, tried to convince us that the following ‘impromptu’ meeting between herself and Bill Clinton at the Phoenix airport, a private meeting which lasted 30 minutes on Lynch’s private plane, was mostly a “social meeting” in which Bill talked about his grandchildren and golf game. It was not, under any circumstances, related to the statement that former FBI Director James Comey made just 6 days later clearing Hillary Clinton of any alleged crimes related to his agency’s investigation.

But, according to a new DOJ FOIA dump just released by the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), it looks increasingly as if nothing reported about this “social meeting” between Lynch and Clinton was grounded in fact… shocking, we know…

Republican Donor From Virginia Beach Sues GOP, Accusing Party Of Fraud Over Failed Obamacare Repeal – Virginian-Pilot

A retired attorney in Virginia Beach is so incensed that Republicans couldn’t repeal the Affordable Care Act he’s suing to get political donations back, accusing the GOP of fraud and racketeering.

Bob Heghmann, 70, filed a lawsuit Thursday in U.S. District Court saying the national and Virginia Republican parties and some GOP leaders raised millions of dollars in campaign funds while knowing they weren’t going to be able to overturn the ACA, also known as Obamacare.

The GOP “has been engaged in a pattern of Racketeering which involves massive fraud perpetrated on Republican voters and contributors as well as some Independents and Democrats,” the suit said. Racketeering, perhaps better known for use in prosecuting organized crime, involves a pattern of illegal behavior by a specific group.

The lawsuit lists as defendants the Republican National Committee and Virginia’s two national GOP committee members, Morton Blackwell and Cynthia Dunbar, as well as the Republican Party of Virginia and state party Chairman John Whitbeck…

U.S. Created 209,000 Jobs In July, Crushing Expectations – Breitbart

Job creation in July kept up its sizzling June pace, with nonfarm payrolls growing by 209,000 while the unemployment rate slid down to 4.3%. Economists had been expecting payroll growth of 180,000 and a slight decline in unemployment. Last month, the economy added 231,000 jobs.

Employment rose in restaurants and bars, white collar jobs, and health care. Employment in mining and manufacturing, two major areas of focus for the Trump administration, was unchanged.

The labor force participation rate, at 62.9 percent, was little changed. This rate has remained steady for the past year. June was revised up to 231,000 from 222,000, which means that the jobs market was even stronger than expected.

Trump, McMaster Meet Amid Purge Of National Security Staffers, Susan Rice Revelation – Washington Times

Gen. McMaster sent a letter to Ms. Rice in April giving her unfettered and continuing access to classified information and waiving the “need-to-know” requirement on anything she viewed or received during her tenure as President Obama’s national security adviser. A copy of the letter was obtained by Circa; Mr. Trump reportedly was not aware of Gen. McMaster’s action.

Venezuela’s Socialist Fast-Track To The Apocalypse – New York Post

Venezuela is on a fast track to the apocalypse – with the regime’s efforts to lock in its control only making it worse.

Thanks to the socialist misrule of the late Hugo Chavez, the country was already the murder and kidnapping capital of the world when Nicolلs Maduro took over as president. Now it’s No. 1 in inflation, too. Food is scarce; medicine scarcer still. Regime thugs answer protests with deadly force.

Maduro has used corrupt courts to sideline the opposition-run parliament, and is in the process of setting up a phony “constituent assembly” of loyalists to replace it.

In the wee hours Tuesday, the government “arrested” two prominent regime critics who’d questioned the vote in Sunday’s “election” to that assembly. Wednesday, the firm that provided the voting machines announced that it already has evidence of at least 1 million falsified votes.

Washington has put new sanctions on Maduro and other top officials, and President Trump warns he’ll hold Maduro personally responsible for those imprisoned opposition leaders…

Douchebag Professor Shows Up To Class In Helmet And Body Armor On First Day Texas Campus Carry Law Goes Into Effect – Guns

To inaugurate the implementation of legal concealed carry at public junior colleges in Texas, one instructor came to work complete with helmet and body armor.

Professor Charles K. Smith, who wore the gear to his Physical Geography class at San Antonio College, drew comments on social media from both sides of the argument on campus this week.

“It definitely makes me feel uneasy that there are more firearms on campus than there really should be,” Smith told MySA.com. “(Dressing this way) was just a statement on how I felt.”

Signed by Gov. Greg Abbott two years ago, SB 11 gave public four-year colleges and universities in Texas a year to establish local policies to allow guns on campus. Now, community colleges are following suit at the two-year mark with the law taking effect Aug. 1.

LA Made $1.3 Billion In Illegal Alien Welfare Payouts In Just 2 Years – Fox News

Illegal immigrant families received nearly $1.3 billion in Los Angeles County welfare money during 2015 and 2016, nearly one-quarter of the amount spent on the county’s entire needy population, according to data obtained by Fox News.

The data was obtained from the county Department of Public Social Services – which is responsible for doling out the benefits – and gives a snapshot of the financial costs associated with sanctuary and related policies.

The sanctuary county of Los Angeles is an illegal immigration epicenter, with the largest concentration of any county ​in the nation, according to a study from the Migration Policy Institute. ​The county also allows illegal immigrant parents with children born in the United States to seek welfare and food stamp benefits.

Massive Doctor Shortage Reveals Obamacare Is Killing The Medical Profession – Red Alert Politics

Even though President Trump promised to let Obamacare fail before coming to a deal with the House and Senate Democrats who wouldn’t budge on repeal and replace efforts, doctors are taking the brunt of the damage.

In 2015, the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) reported that there will be a shortage of 90,000 physicians by 2025, particularly in the practice of primary care. Dr. Bruce Koeppen, dean of the new Quinnipiac University Medical School, has put an emphasis on bringing in more applicants who want to specialize in primary care to help curb the massive shortfall of 35,000 primary care physicians in 2025.

“Your primary care physician is your navigator through the healthcare system,” Koeppen told CBS2 New York. “They see you for every particular problem you have, they can refer you to specialists if that’s the case, but they’re the ones who know you the best.”

Some of the reasons for this massive shortage include an increasing demand for primary care doctors, physicians who are retiring from the profession, and, of course, money…

GOP-Run Senate Blocks Trump From Making Recess Appointments Over Break – The Hill

The move, which requires the agreement of every senator, means the Senate will be in session every three business days throughout the August recess.

Half Of Detroit’s Mayoral Candidates Are Felons – Zero Hedge

Will voters in one of the most crime-ridden cities in the country be able to stomach voting for a convicted felon? Residents of Detroit are about to find out. Half of the candidates running in next Tuesday’s mayoral primary – the first since the city emerged from Bankruptcy protection in 2014 – have felony convictions on their records, according to an analysis of criminal records by the Detroit News.

In what we must admit is a masterful attempt at spin, one political operative said the felony convictions make the candidates more relatable because they show the candidates have each “lived a little.”

“Black marks on your record show you have lived a little and have overcome some challenges,” said Bowens, a former press secretary to Detroit Mayor Dennis Archer and NAACP activist. “They (candidates) deserve the opportunity to be heard, but they also deserve to have the kind of scrutiny that comes along with trying to get an important elected position.”

Meanwhile, Canada’s ‘Free’ Health Care System Is Also Exploding – Daily Caller

“Free” Canadian healthcare is not free, according to a report released Tuesday by noted conservative Canadian think-tank, The Fraser Institute. The report illuminates that a “typical Canadian family of four will pay $12,057 for health care in 2017 – an increase of nearly 70 percent over the last 20 years.”

Canada operates under a medicare system that is understood as single-payer. Not only does the federal government use money from its general revenue to finance this taxpayer-funded health care system, individual provinces also contribute by raising money through special levies that are deducted when Canadians pay their income tax.

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton spoke repeatedly of her admiration for Canadian medicare, and Congressional Democrats could be moving in that direction in their response to the implosion of Obamacare.

“Health care in Canada isn’t free – Canadians actually pay a substantial amount for health care through their taxes, even if they don’t pay directly for medical services,” said Bacchus Barua, senior economist with the Fraser Institute’s Centre for Health Policy Studies, in a statement…

GOP Pulls In $75M In Trump’s First 6 Months, Double Obama’s First 6 Months – Fox News

Australia’s Bureau Of Meteorology Caught Erasing Record Low Temperatures – Breitbart

Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) has been caught red handed erasing record-breaking cold temperatures from its data records.

The BOM has now been shamed by media investigations into ordering a review of its procedures. But it has yet to provide an explanation as to why it made these “adjustments” in the first place.

These “adjustments” seem to go only one way. The BOM is perfectly happy to record and announce it whenever Australia’s temperatures hit record-breaking highs. But when the temperatures reach new lows it’s a different matter altogether.

For some strange reason that the BOM has been unable to explain, when temperatures go below a certain point it either deletes them as if they had never been – or it enters them into its records at higher temperature than the one actually recorded by its thermometers.

The dodgy adjustments were spotted by investigative journalist Jennifer Marohasy…

Venezuelan Opposition Leaders Dragged From Their Homes In Early Morning Raids- Daily Telegraph

Venezuelan opposition leaders Leopoldo Lopez and Antonio Ledezma were taken from their homes by intelligence agents in the early hours of Tuesday morning, in the wake of the controversial assembly vote that Nicolas Maduro said would open “a new phase of combat” in the country’s revolution.

Videos distributed by the leaders’ families showed them being dragged out of their houses and bundled into cars belonging to the notorious intelligence unit Sebin. The opposition denounced the detentions as “kidnappings”, and said the whereabouts of the two men was currently unknown.

Armed Antifa Group Offers Training Manual On Terrorism And Guerrilla Warfare – Daily Caller

An Antifa organization called Redneck Revolt is advocating for “revolution” against the rise of “fascism” in the United States, and the end of capitalism. To facilitate these goals, the group offers a variety of resources, including a training manual for conducting guerrilla warfare with sections for “executions” and “terrorism.”

In the wake of the targeted shooting of Republican members of Congress earlier this year, nothing is more concerning than extremist organizations calling for armed revolts against civil society.

Redneck Revolt is one of several organizations to spring up following Trump’s victory at the 2016 polls, and is purportedly one of the largest of these Antifa organizations currently operating in the United States with over 30 chapters across 20 states.

It describes itself as a group made up of “working class and poor people” with declarations of taking “meaningful action” against “our common enemy: the rich.” It lists “militant resistance” as one of the group’s guiding principles…

Leftist Insanity Update: NYPD ‘Powerless’ To Stop Naked Illegal Alien Panhandlers – Breitbart

The Root Cause Of The Disasters In The Middle East – David Horowitz

During the eight years of the Obama administration, half a million Christians, Yazidis and Muslims were slaughtered in the Middle East by ISIS and other Islamic jihadists, in a genocidal campaign waged in the name of Islam and its God.

Twenty million others were driven into exile by these same jihadist forces. Libya and Yemen became terrorist states. America – once the dominant foreign power and anti-jihadist presence in the region – was replaced by Russia, an ally of the monster regimes in Syria and Iran, and their terrorist proxies.

Under the patronage of the Obama administration, Iran – the largest and most dangerous terrorist state, with the blood of thousands of Americans on its hands – emerged from its isolation as a pariah state to re-enter the community of nations and become the region’s dominant power, arming and directing its terrorist proxies in Lebanon, Syria, Gaza and Yemen…

Border Wall Construction To Begin In Just A Few Months – Daily Caller

Construction on the first part of President Donald Trump’s promised border wall is set to begin in South Texas in a few months.

The Santa Ana National Wildlife Refuge in Texas is expected to be the site of a three mile border wall, managed by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

Construction is set to begin in November, however, it was originally to begin in January. As WFAA reports, “construction on the wall was not expected to begin until January because Congress has yet to approve CBP’s budget.”

“However, CBP recently told a senior Fish and Wildlife Service official in Texas that the agency would shift funds to pay for the new segment out of its current budget,” WFAA adds.

Perhaps the government is taking a cue from Donald Trump in building the border wall: “Under Budget, Ahead of Schedule.”

Child Sex Doll Imports Expose Previously Unknown Offenders – The Guardian

A surge in the number of seizures of child-like sex dolls by border officers has led investigators to identify dozens of previously unknown suspected paedophiles.

The lifelike silicone dolls, which weigh around 25kg (55lb) and can cost thousands of pounds, are being imported to the UK after being sold by traders on sites including Amazon and eBay, the National Crime Agency (NCA) said.

They are a “relatively new phenomenon” in the UK and should be criminalised, said Hazel Stewart, the operations manager at the NCA’s child exploitation and online protection command (Ceop).

Border Force officers have seized 123 such dolls in little more than a year since March 2016; seven people have been charged with importing them, including one man who was jailed last month.

The figures were revealed as a judge at Canterbury crown court dismissed an attempt by a barrister representing an ex-primary school governor, David Turner, to argue that a doll he imported was not obscene…

Seven Food Stamp Recipients Plead Guilty To Taking Part In $5 Million Food Stamp Fraud – Breitbart

Seven South Carolina women who received food stamps as part of a $5 million food stamp fraud scheme pleaded guilty to defrauding the government of more than $20,000 at a store in Rock Hill.

A state court judge ruled that the women who pleaded guilty Thursday will be able to avoid jail sentences and probation if they pay back the money by December 31, 2017, the Charlotte Observer reported.

The seven women who pleaded guilty, in order of who defrauded the most money to those who defrauded the least amount, include: Jatonica Williams, 31, $5,238 in fraud; Dequitta White, 31, $3,070; Labrecia White, 24, $2,962; Shenisa Davis, 36, $2,549; Victoria Sanders, 25, $2,234; Kimberly Johnson, 28, $2,195 in fraud; and Brooke Rogers, 27, $2,134.

Johnson entered a guilty plea by herself while the other six pleaded guilty in two groups of three.

Man ‘Marries’ His Laptop, Sues For State Recognition And A Wedding Cake – Washington Times

Chris Sevier says that if same-sex couples are able to get married and demand that Christian bakers make them wedding cakes, then he should be allowed to marry his laptop and demand a cake to celebrate the union between one man and one machine.

The self-identified “machinist” says he married his laptop in a ceremony in New Mexico, and now he has sued to demand that a Colorado baker – who is already in court after refusing to bake for a same-sex marriage – must be compelled to make cakes for him and his computer “bride.” He also has filed a lawsuit demanding that Utah recognize his man-object marriage.

It’s the latest battlefront in an increasingly thorny area of law, after the U.S. Supreme Court in 2015 established a constitutional right to same-sex marriage.

Treasury Nixes Struggling Obama-Era Government-Run Retirement Program – Washington Times

The Treasury Department said Friday that it’s canceling an Obama-era program designed to help Americans who don’t have access to a 401k plan at their work save for retirement, saying interest was too low to justify the expense to taxpayers.

Known as myRA, the program was one of President Obama’s State of the Union promises in 2014. It was supposed to try to reach millions of Americans whose jobs didn’t offer retirement savings or pensions plans, and would invest their money in government bonds.

As of late last year, however, just 20,000 people had signed up, according to CNNMoney.

“Unfortunately, there has been very little demand for the program, and the cost to taxpayers cannot be justified by the assets in the program,” said U.S. Treasurer Jovita Carranza.

The department said part of the reason for the low level of interest is that the private sector already has a number of good plans that, like the government-run program, don’t charge maintenance fees nor require a minimum balance, and are safe as investment options…

Four German Women Arrested In Iraq Worked As ‘Morality Police’ For ISIS – Breitbart

Federal Court Shoots Down DC Gun Law: Carrying In Public A “Core” Second Amendment Right – Washington Standard

Current D.C. law requires that a citizen has a “good reason” for getting a concealed carry permit, which would allow them to carry a gun in public. However, it is the city that gets to decide whether or not a person has a “good reason” for needing to carry a gun, and they can reject almost any request.

House Votes To Add Border Wall Funding To Spending Bill – The Hill

But what you may not know is that the Multnomah County district attorney, Rod Underhill, had dropped charges on Feller from another protest-turned-riot that happened back in March.

According to court documents, Feller had initially been charged with Disorderly Conduct and Reckless Burning, stemming from an event that took place on March 29th, 2017. They even released him on his own recognizance. On April 12th, All of those charges were dropped, aka “No Complaint”ed, just three weeks before Fellers next round of criminal behavior…

Walmart Unveils Manufacturing Plan To Create 1.5 Million New Jobs – Fox News

Walmart Inc. (WMT) met with government and business leaders in Washington on Wednesday to unveil a plan to spur growth in domestic manufacturing efforts that company executives say will create an estimated 1.5 million new jobs in the United States.

The meeting included a discussion with key individuals on both sides of the aisle about the biggest challenges the U.S. manufacturing sector currently faces. Using an analysis by the Boston Consulting Group and Walmart sourcing data, the company crafted a 10-point plan to “recapture” an estimated $300 billion in imported consumer goods, stoking job growth in the process.

“As we’ve worked over the last four years alongside our suppliers toward our goal to source an additional $250 billion in products that support American jobs, we’ve learned a great deal about the challenges our suppliers face in domestic manufacturing,” said Cindi Marsiglio, Walmart vice president for U.S. Sourcing and Manufacturing. “The good news is we’ve also learned how to overcome the challenges and, because of our experience, Walmart is uniquely positioned to help facilitate broad engagement in accelerating the expansion of U.S. manufacturing.”…

Man Charged With Impregnating 11-Year-Old Claims She May Have Raped Him – Law Newz

A Massachusetts man accused of raping a child by force and impregnating her had a surprising defense. Justin J. Armstrong, 38, claimed he didn’t commit the abuse, according to local newspaper The Republican – Instead, he claims she may have raped him in his sleep.

Prosecutors claim that the 11-year-old girl told them Armstrong sexually abused her for approximately 18 months. He allegedly told her he’d be arrested if she came out with the truth, but she eventually told one of her mother’s friends.

Armstrong, who was arrested Friday, denied the allegations. He told cops that according to the victim, a relative sexually abused her. As Assistant District Attorney Jill O’Connor laid it out in court Monday, he eventually learned the victim was pregnant, and suggested she raped him in his sleep.

GOP Health Care Bill Clears First Huge Hurdle In Senate – Business Insider

Even with this step, it is unclear whether Republicans will have the votes to eventually repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, the healthcare law known as Obamacare.

Every Democrat voted against the motion on Tuesday, as well as Republican Sens. Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski. GOP leadership could not have afforded another defection.

Al Gore Can’t Save The Global Warming Cult – Bruce Thornton

Following Donald Trump’s withdrawal of the U.S. from the Paris Climate Accord, Al Gore is releasing an update of his 2006 documentary An Inconvenient Truth. It’s called An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, in which no doubt we will hear the same apocalyptic hysteria of its predecessor, and the same lurid predictions that will never come true. The difference between the 2006 Academy Award winner and the updated version is that now volumes of counter-evidence and exposure of the manipulation of climate data make it obvious that catastrophic anthropogenic global warming (AGW) is a progressive cult-belief and alternative energy boondoggle, not real science.

Earlier this month PJMedia covered a new report that seriously challenges the data all warmists rely on to buttress their case that the planet has been steadily warming to disastrous levels. This peer-reviewed paper examines how the raw data from weather stations are manipulated and altered by the three main purveyors of temperature data known as Global Average Surface Temperature (GAST) – The National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration, NASA, and the Hadley Center for Climate Prediction and Research – before being used by other researchers…

As the debate over President Donald Trump’s voter fraud commission intensifies, a new study has found 8,471 instances of double voting during the 2016 elections occurring in 21 states.

The nonpartisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI), which was cofounded by Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large Peter Schweizer and former Breitbart Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon, analyzed data from 21 U.S. states and found that 7,271 ballots were cast in more than one state by individuals with the identical first and last name, middle initial, birthdate, and partial Social Security number.

Another 1,200 double votes meeting the same criteria were detected within the same state. Given the high methodological bar employed, GAI says the statistical “probability of correctly matching two records with the same name, birthdate, and Social Security number is close to 100 percent.”

8 Illegals Found Dead In Tractor Trailer At San Antonio Walmart, 30 Others In Bad Shape – MYSA

The driver of a tractor-trailer that was found in a Walmart parking lot with eight dead immigrants and 30 others in bad shape is in federal custody, officials said Sunday.

James M. Bradley Jr., 60, is believed to be from Florida. He was booked into a federal jail in San Antonio on human trafficking charges for his alleged role in what U.S. Attorney Richard Durbin called “an alien smuggling venture gone horribly wrong.”

The truck was parked at a back corner of the Walmart parking lot at 8538 S. Interstate 35 and Texas 16 on the Southwest Side at least since Saturday night.

At Least 90 Hospitalized, 50 Charged With Underage Drinking At Hartford ‘Hot Jam’ Concert – Hartford Courant

At least 90 people were hospitalized and another 50 were charged with underage drinking during the Hot 93.7 Hot Jam concert at Xfinity Theatre on Friday night, police and fire officials said.

The number of people taken to the hospital on Friday night far exceeds what is typical for a concert in the city, Deputy Police Chief Brian Foley said.

“A ‘typical’ concert is around 20-30 transports. 60 would be very bad. We had 70 once and 90 last night,” Foley said. “It depends on the act that is in town and the fan base age.”

Whistleblower: Obama Labor Officials Denied Or Delayed Pay-Outs To Nuclear Workers In Hopes They Would Die – Washington Free Beacon

A senior attorney at the Labor Department is accusing agency officials of writing and manipulating regulations to intentionally delay and deny congressionally mandated compensation to nuclear-weapons workers who suffered from sicknesses – and in some cases died – as a result of their work building the nation’s Cold War nuclear arsenal.

The attorney, Stephen Silbiger, says Labor Department leadership under former Labor Secretary Tom Perez ignored years of his complaints about the “open hostility” he said some officials exhibited toward claimants, many of whom are too poor and sick to fight the agency’s denials and red tape in federal court.

When Congress passed the law creating the compensation program in 2000, a bipartisan group of lawmakers promised these nuclear workers a claimant-friendly path to compensating them or their families for illnesses related to the country’s nuclear build-up and their exposure to toxins at bomb-making facilities…

In an interview with The New York Times, the president said Mr. Sessions’ decision in March led to the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller, a development that Mr. Trump said shouldn’t have happened.

“Sessions should have never recused himself, and if he was going to recuse himself, he should have told me before he took the job and I would have picked somebody else,” Mr. Trump said…

Congress Grants Permanent U.S. Residency To Charlie Gard – Daily Caller

Charlie Gard has reportedly been granted permanent resident status in the U.S. thanks to an amendment passed by Congress.

Congress passed an amendment granting “permanent resident status to Charlie Gard and family so Charlie can get the medical treatment he needs,” Nebraska Republican Rep. Jeff Fortenberry of Nebraska tweeted Tuesday.

Permanent U.S. residency for Gard would mean his parents, Connie Yates and Chris Gard, would not need permission from U.K. doctors to fly him to America for treatment.

Born a little less than a year ago, Gard suffers from a faulty gene that has left him unable to move or breath on his own.

The parents have been fighting a legal battle to keep their child alive since the government appointed a lawyer to determine what is in the child’s best interests rather than allowing the parents to decide…

“I Won’t Let Myself Be Fucked”: French Armed Forces Chief Resigns After Clashing With Limp-Wristed Macron – Zero Hedge

France’s armed forces chief resigned on Wednesday, culminating a dramatic dispute with president Emmanuel Macron over defense budget cuts, in what Reuters called “an early test of the newly elected president’s mettle and the tough presidential style he is cultivating.” Last week, General Pierre de Villiers publicly lashed out about Macron’s proposed €850 million cuts to the military’s budget, when in an outburst before a parliament committee he said he “won’t let myself be fucked like that,” adding that “I may be stupid, but I know when I am being had.”

In a statement released on Wednesday, the 60-year-old De Villers said that “in the current circumstances I see myself as no longer able to guarantee the robust defense force I believe is necessary to guarantee the protection of France and the French people, today and tomorrow, and to sustain the aims of our country”…

ICE Adding Officers In ‘Uncooperative Jurisdictions’ To Arrest Criminal Aliens Released By Leftist Traitors – Breitbart

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) executives are reallocating resources to increase enforcement efforts in “uncooperative jurisdictions” where criminal aliens are released back onto the streets by local jail officials.

Acting ICE Director Thomas D. Homan said he is going to deploy more officers and agents to “sanctuary cities” to arrest illegal criminals, the Washington Examiner reported. In an interview with the Examiner, praised the focus on law enforcement from President Donald Trump saying, “What this president has done is taken the handcuffs off of law enforcement officers who are charged with enforcing immigration laws.”

He said the president’s focus resulted in a 70 percent drop of border apprehensions, leaving immigration officers to place more emphasis on interior enforcement against criminal aliens. He said his focus is now on finding criminal aliens locked up in jails, illegally working jobs, and those on the run from law enforcement…

More Migrant Riots Hit France – Joseph Klein

The European migration experiment is failing miserably. Self-declared “refugees” and migrants from Africa and the Middle East are importing their violence, chaos and regressive norms of behavior into formerly harmonious countries all over Western Europe. As Seth J. Frantzman wrote in the Jerusalem Post last December, “They hate the very society they have often chosen to migrate to. Their new society tolerated their intolerance and taught them that this new country provided such unfettered freedom that it should be destroyed.”

For example, while many French people were busy celebrating Bastille Day – a year after the tragic Islamist massacre in Nice – riots and violence reportedly broke out on the nights of July 13 and 14 in suburbs of Paris heavily populated by migrants…

Trump Sends Feds In To Raid New York’s Islamberg After 2 Decades, Uncovers America’s Worst Nightmare – Freedom Daily

There’s a mysterious hidden Muslim compound called Islamberg that’s nestled deep within the woods of the Catskill mountains in New York. The only way to access the 70-acre compound is through primitive dirt roads, where more than 100 Muslims live in seclusion away from the prying eyes of curious Americans.

For over two decades, infidels have been prohibited from entering, as anyone attempting to enter will be “greeted” by armed Muslims patrolling a guard shack at the compound’s entry gate. Without access to the compound, there’s been no way to confirm rumors about the location being used as a training ground for Muslim terrorists. But after an alarming incident involving one of the Islamberg residents, police were finally able to obtain a warrant and raid the place. And what they discovered that these Muslims have been quietly plotting for years is nothing short of chilling.

For over two decades, this cult-like group of Sharia Law-following Muslims have lived quietly under the guidance of Pakistani Sheikh Syed Mubarik Ali Shah Gilani, a radical Muslim with known ties to Jamaat al-Fuqra, a terror organization responsible for a long list of terrorist activities around the world, including murders of rival religious figures in the United States…

Government Thieves Go Wild Stealing Your Stuff – WorldNetDaily

The U.S. Supreme Court has been asked to stop governments in Michigan from collecting overdue property taxes by confiscating the property, selling it and keeping the entire profit.

Lawyers for the plaintiffs, who want back the difference between their taxes owed and what the government got for their properties, warn that similar scenarios are arising in a handful of other states.

WND reported in March an appeals court decided 2-1 based on jurisdictional issues that it could not order the return of the $190,000 profit Van Buren County made when it confiscated a church’s camp property for nonpayment of taxes.

Two other plaintiffs, each of whom lost smaller parcels, are joining Wayside Church in being represented by Pacific Legal Foundation.

“Our budget is one of sustainability, smaller government, stronger national security, and greater freedom for individuals,” the committee states. “The status quo is unsustainable spending, higher deficits and debt, higher taxes, bigger government, and more federal control over the lives of Americans.”

The budget not only balances within a decade, but aims to increase economic growth by implementing tax reform and reducing government regulations, as well as reforming several government programs to ensure taxpayer dollars are used efficiently and appropriately.

The committee notes that under the Obama administration, federal spending grew at a rate that increased the debt to unprecedented levels. They found that if spending continued along this path, in the next 10 years there would be $9.4 trillion more added to the debt…

“We’ve never seen such a drop that we currently have.”

In a peculiar, rambling essay, papal adviser Father Antonio Spadaro SJ has caricatured white southern evangelicals as well as conservative American Catholics as ignorant, theocratic, Manichean, war-mongering fanatics anxiously awaiting the apocalypse.

It is “these religious groups that are composed mainly of whites from the deep American South” that push conflicts and justify belligerence, while favoring the Old Testament “rather than be guided by the incisive look, full of love, of Jesus in the Gospels.”

Leftist Judge Forces Prison To Provide Hormone Therapy To “Transgender” Dude Named Sparkles Wilson – Daily Caller

Mariani’s ruling comes after Fritz had filed a $1 million-plus lawsuit alleging that he will suffer physical harm and mental trauma if he does not continue receiving regular estrogen infusions.

Some time ago, Deutsche Bank’s chief international economist, Torsten Slok, presented several charts which showed that “Canada is in serious trouble” mostly as a result of its overreliance on its frothy, bubbly housing sector, but also due to the fact that unlike the US, the average household had failed to reduce its debt load in time.

Additionally, he demonstrated that it was not just the mortgage-linked dangers from the housing market (and this was before Vancouver and Toronto got slammed with billions in “hot” Chinese capital inflows) as credit card loans and personal lines of credit had both surged, even as multifamily construction was at already record highs and surging, while the labor market had become particularly reliant on the assumption that the housing sector would keep growing indefinitely, suggesting that if and when the housing market took a turn for the worse, or even slowed down as expected, a major source of employment in recent years would shrink.

Fast forward to today, when the trends shown by Slok two years ago have only grown more acute, with Canada’s household debt continuing to rise, its divergence with the US never been greater…

GOP Rallies Behind Idiotic Bill – Ann Coulter

Republicans are about to do something very stupid. Using bribery, threats and cajolery, they intend to pass a catastrophically unpopular bill on a party-line vote.

GOP: Obamacare is unpopular, so let’s pass a new health care bill that’s even MORE unpopular.

Normal Person: Why would you do that?

GOP: No, you don’t understand. Obamacare is totally imploding, so if we pass this bill now, all its problems will be blamed on us!

Republicans would be better off doing nothing. They can survive the ridicule for running against Obamacare through four election cycles and then not repealing it. They cannot survive a bill that does nothing to fix the actual problems with Obamacare.

The only explanation for the GOP doing something so stupid and unpopular is that it’s all about tax cuts.

Why can’t we get it through their heads that we didn’t elect Trump to cut taxes? Forty-five percent of people don’t pay any federal income tax – and they voted for Trump!…

Democrats At FEC Keep Accepting Foreign-Funded Trips – Daily Caller

Democrats on America’s top election oversight agency have regularly accepted lavish junkets funded by foreign governments and organizations.

Since 2002, the Federal Election Commission’s three Democratic members took at least 50 official trips during their combined time serving on the agency, according to documents obtained from public records and Freedom of Information Act requests. Expenses related to the trips were paid by a combination of foreign groups, governments, and by U.S. taxpayers through the agency’s own budget.

According to the records, which come from the Office of Governmental Ethics and FEC records published by The Hill’s Rudy Takala, none of the FEC’s three Republican commissioners have ever taken a single agency-related international trip while serving on the commission.

Democratic Commissioner Ellen Weintraub, who has engaged in more sponsored trips than any of her colleagues, sought last month to stoke fears over the influence that she said foreign money could have had on the 2016 election, claiming that Russia might have bought ads on Facebook aimed at influencing the American electorate…

Clint Eastwood Casts Real-Life Heroes In Next Film ‘The 15:17 To Paris’ – Variety

In an unconventional move, Clint Eastwood has tapped Anthony Sadler, Alek Skarlatos, and Spencer Stone to play themselves in his next movie, “The 15:17 to Paris.” The film will tell the story of the three Americans who stopped a terrorist on a train bound for Paris.

Jenna Fischer, Judy Greer, and Ray Corasani will also join the real-life heroes in the film. Paul-Mikel Williams, Max Ivutin, Bryce Gheisa, Cole Eichenberger, and William Jennings will play younger versions of the Sadler, Skarlatos and Stone.

Knife-Wielding Leftists Terrorize Children At Chick-Fil-A – Gateway Pundit

“They came in slicing each other’s throats, putting each other on their knees, dropping them onto the floor in front of a bunch of children,” said Crystal Valle-Najar.

Liberals love to terrorize children. They were at it again on Tuesday at a Pinellas Park, Florida, Chick Fil A fast food restaurant where a group of knife-wielding vegan protesters staged a mock slaughter of cows inside the chicken-themed restaurant while parents protected their children. The occasion was Chick Fil A’s ‘cow appreciation day’ where customers who dress as a cow are given free food.

Real-looking knives, splattered fake blood and screaming kids. It’s not the kind of scene Chick-fil-A envisioned when they kicked off “Cow Appreciation Day.”

Hundreds Of New York Cops Turn Their Backs On Sleazebag Mayor De Blasio At Funeral – The Hill

Canadian Landlord Fined $12,000 For Not Taking Shoes Off In Muslim Tenant’s Home – Fox News

A Canadian landlord who was fined $12,000 for wearing shoes in a Muslim tenant’s home said he felt “humiliated” by the harsh penalty levied by a national human rights tribunal.

In an interview with the Toronto Sun, John Alabi, 52, of Brampton, recounted how he went above and beyond trying to accommodate the Egyptian-born couple who lived in the apartment for two months – just to be slapped with a steep fine for the shoe incident.

“I go beyond all that. I just see everybody as human beings like me. That’s why I took them in,” Alabi told the Toronto Sun in May. “We got along. And then all of a sudden I’m a racist?”

The Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario ordered Alabi in April to pay the tenants $6,000 each after he failed to take his shoes off in the bedroom were the couple prayed while he was showing the home to potential renters.

Senate GOP Eyes Obamacare Repeal Vote Next Week – The Hill

Two Million More People Lost Insurance Under Obamacare In Second Quarter Of 2017 – Breitbart

A new Gallup/Sharecare poll shows that two million more Americans are without insurance this year, with the number of uninsured rising to 11.7 percent in the second quarter of 2017, up from 10.9 percent in the second quarter of 2016.

The poll stated that 10.9 percent uninsured was a record low over the period from 2008 to 2017.

The story about the poll also noted that the highest percentage of uninsured Americans was in 2013 – at 18 percent – before the Obamacare insurance exchanges opened.

However, also starting in 2014, people who did not buy health insurance faced penalties enforced by the IRS.

“Several marketplace factors could be contributing to the uptick in the uninsured rate since the second half of 2016. Rising insurance premiums could be causing some Americans to forgo insurance, especially those who fail to qualify for federal subsidies,” the pool article stated. “Furthermore, some insurance companies are leaving the ACA marketplace, and the lack of competition could be driving up the cost of plans for consumers.”…

Woman Faces Probation For Groping Female Passenger During Las Vegas Flight – Law Newz

An Oregon woman faces probation for groping a female passenger on an Alaska Airlines flight. Heidi McKinney, 26, is scheduled for a sentencing hearing at U.S. District Court on Monday.

McKinney made unrequited small talk, asking personal questions, disrespecting how much wealth the victim seemed to have, and bragging about her own wealth. She also put her arm around the woman, and took photos of her. This was before lift-off. In the air, McKinney brought out alcohol she smuggled onto the flight.

Merkel Migrant Blowback Begins: Chechen Sharia Police Terrorize Berlin – Zero Hedge

A hundred Islamists are now openly enforcing Sharia law on the streets of Berlin, according to local police who are investigating a recent string of violent assaults in the German capital.

California Upholds ‘Right’ For Pedophiles To Marry 10-Year-Old Kids – Your News Wire

Leftist Media Ignoring Virginia Governor’s Role In Green Car Scandal That Fleeced Taxpayers Out Of Millions – Judicial Watch

14 Lessons For Stupid People – Patrice Lewis

As I write this, the German town of Hamburg is in chaos as 100,000 anti-capitalists (otherwise known as “stupid people”) pour in to participate in a “Welcome to Hell” protest against the G20 summit. Police have responded to the violence with water cannons and pepper spray while Hamburg residents are suffering vandalism and arson to their homes, businesses and cars by the peaceful demonstrators. Beer appears to be a popular fuel for the rioters.

As with most protests of this nature, it’s a little vague what these people find objectionable, but a few themes have emerged. Demonstrators want open borders, more wealth distribution and an end to capitalism. According to the U.K.’s Daily Mail, “Protesters say the G20 has failed to solve many of the issues threatening world peace, including climate change, worsening inequality and violent conflicts” – thus accomplishing at the rally the very things they claim they’re against. (That’s why they’re known as “stupid people.”)

The arson, rioting and vandalism initiated by the protesters, doubtless to illustrate how peaceful and inclusive they are, as well as their violent opposition to violent conflicts, merely echoes similar protests that have taken place in many Western nations, especially America…

The Democrats’ Soviet Insane Asylum For Trump – Jamie Glazov
.

.
The former Soviet Union possessed many imaginative mechanisms to deal with the problem of enemies of the people who obstructed the path to socialist utopia – now known as “social justice.” One of those mechanisms was the practice of confining individuals who were thinking the wrong thoughts to insane asylums. Indeed, if you caused any trouble for the commissars, a good inoculation of neuroleptics (powerful drugs used to “quiet” the symptoms of schizophrenia), forcibly administered through a tube in the nose, could do wonders in bringing your politically incorrect behavior to a halt.

Dissidents such as Natalya Gorbanevskaya, Pyotr Grigorenko, Vladimir Bukovsky, Alexander Esenin-Volpin and Joseph Brodsky were all among the brave freedom-fighters who bore the brunt of the Soviet practice of institutionalizing dissidents in mental hospitals and force-feeding them mind-shattering drugs…

Trump Labels North Korea A “Problem And Menace” At G20 Summit – Associated Press

President Donald Trump assailed North Korea as a “problem and menace” Saturday as he met with Asian allies on the sidelines of an international summit to build consensus on next steps after the North’s recent test-launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile.

“Something has to be done about it,” Trump said as he met with Chinese President Xi Jinping. In a separate meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Trump said the two were tackling “the problem and menace of North Korea.”

Abe, speaking through a translator, noted that the security situation in the Asia Pacific region has become “increasingly severe” due to North Korea’s push to develop its ballistic missile and nuclear program. Abe said he wanted to “demonstrate the robust partnership as well as the bonds” between Japan and the U.S. on the issue.

North Korea’s successful test launch of an ICBM was a major milestone in its long-term effort to build a missile that could carry a nuclear warhead to attack the United States…

Leftist Oregon Governor To Sign Bill Providing “Free” Abortions For All – Washington Times

Oregon Gov. Kate Brown said Thursday that she plans to sign a sweeping, unprecedented bill requiring insurers to provide free abortions for their customers, including illegal immigrants.

“The ability to control our bodies and make informed decisions about health are critical to providing all Oregonians the opportunity to achieve our full potential and live productive, thriving lives,” the Democratic chief executive said in an email. “Attempts to deny access to contraceptives and family planning are an attack on all Oregonians, particularly women of color, low-income and young women.”

The $10.2 million bill, which cleared the state House and Senate with no Republican votes, also comes as a badly needed boost for Planned Parenthood’s Oregon affiliate, which helped write the measure and pushed for its passage as it struggles to keep its doors open.

Democrats said the bill would ensure equal access to abortion, but several Republicans said they didn’t understand why the legislation was necessary, given that Oregon already has the least-restrictive abortion laws in the nation…

Judge Brown’s Retirement Will Let Trump Appoint Conservative To Powerful DC Circuit Court – Wall Street Journal

President Donald Trump will soon have the ability to start remaking Washington’s second-most powerful court, with the expected retirement of Judge Janice Rogers Brown from the U. S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.

Judge Brown, a 2005 appointee of President George W. Bush, has notified officials that she is stepping down, according to a person familiar with the matter. Judge Brown, 68 years old, didn’t immediately return a call seeking comment.

It is common for federal judges to time their retirements when a president of the party who appointed them is in office. That increases the odds of a like-minded successor.

Moreover, retired federal judges frequently assume “senior status,” which allows them to maintain their salaries and continue hearing cases, with some limitations…

‘Black Lives Matter’ Leaders Sued Over Baton Rouge Police Shooting – Reuters

A police officer wounded in a shooting rampage in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, last year that left three officers dead sued Black Lives Matter movement leaders on Friday, accusing them of inciting violence that spurred the attack.

The lawsuit filed in a U.S. district court in Louisiana named DeRay McKesson and four other Black Lives Matter leaders as defendants and sought at least $75,000 in damages.

It came on the one-year anniversary of one of the deadliest days in modern U.S. history for law enforcement. On July 7, 2016, a black man angered by what he saw as deadly racial bias in U.S. policing launched a downtown Dallas sniper attack, killing five officers deployed at a protest decrying police shootings of black men.

McKesson was not immediately available for comment and Black Lives Matter leaders have denied accusations that their movement promotes violence against police.

New Holes In Loretta Lynch’s Story On The Hillary Probe – New York Post

When former Attorney General Loretta Lynch testified last year about her decision not to prosecute Hillary Clinton for mishandling classified information, she swore she never talked to “anyone” on the Clinton campaign. That categorical denial, though made in response to a series of questions about whether she spoke with Clintonworld about remaining attorney general if Hillary won the election, could come back to haunt her.

The Senate Judiciary Committee, which has launched a bipartisan investigation into Lynch for possible obstruction of justice, recently learned of the existence of a document indicating Lynch assured the political director of Clinton’s campaign she wouldn’t let FBI agents “go too far” in probing the former secretary of state.

Lynch’s lawyer says she is cooperating with committee investigators, who are seeking answers to several questions, as well as relevant documents. Among other things, they want to know if she or any of her Justice Department staff “ever communicated with Amanda Renteria,” who headed Clinton’s political operations during the campaign…

86 Percent Of Recently Tested ‘Underage’ Migrants In Sweden Are Actually Adults – Breitbart

The Swedish National Board of Forensic Medicine (RMV) has released new figures that show a majority of cases of disputed “underage” migrants are actually adults.

The RMV released figures this week after medically testing 1,481 migrants to determine whether or not they had lied about being under the age of 18. Of the total number, it was revealed that 1,215, or 86 per cent, of the individuals tested were adults.

The testing took place over a three-month period between March and June of this year and involved an MRI of the knee joint and an x-ray of wisdom teeth. The results were then examined by doctors who determined whether the migrants were adults or children.

Of all the migrants tested, only 49, or 3.3 per cent, were female (33 of which were found to be over 18). The figures show the overwhelming number of migrants that claim to be underage are either boys or men…

The New Left’s Fake Patriotism – Daniel Greenfield

If anyone doubts that patriotism really is the last refuge of a scoundrel, a recent CNN article boasts that liberals are reclaiming patriotism. After going through their musty attics, tossing aside copies of Howard Zinn’s revisionist Marxist history of America and all the “U.S. Out of Everywhere” buttons, they found their patriotism, moth-eaten, covered in dust and a little worse for the wear. But otherwise intact.

That’s right, progressives are patriotic again. Again refers to the brief period between the end of the Hitler-Stalin pact when the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union necessitated a sudden outburst of pro-war sentiment and the beginning of the Cold War when the Communists became the enemy again.

When the left acts as if WW2 was the only good war, it’s because it was the only war that didn’t force them to choose between their sympathies for Communism and their United States citizenship.

Every time they did have to make that choice, history records their duplicity and sordid treason…

Ratings Collapse: CNN Now Losing To Nick-At-Nite In Prime Time Ratings War – The Federalist

Last week, more Americans tuned in to watch re-runs of “Yogi Bear,” “Full House,” and “Friends” on Nick At Nite than to watch Anderson Cooper and Don Lemon’s shows on CNN.

According to cable ratings from the week of June 26-July 2, CNN’s viewership of its primetime shows was ranked significantly lower than its competitors like Fox News and MSNBC, which place first and second respectively. Clocking in at No. 10 on the list, CNN fell behind HGTV, Nick At Nite, History Channel, and ESPN – the sports network that’s been hemorrhaging viewers for months.

CNN’s ratings nosedive corresponds with the network’s ongoing feud with President Donald Trump.

Trump Has Had 50% More Meetings With Foreign Leaders Than Obama – Breitbart

A review of both presidencies reveals that Obama met with about 20 foreign leaders through July 6, 2009, not including international summits or the United Nations and other institutions. Trump has met with about 30 leaders through June 6, 2017 – not including summits, the UN, or the Palestinian Authority.

Below is a chronological list of the two presidents’ meetings with foreign leaders, with repeat meetings excluded. The list does not include meetings around the G-8 or G-20, where both would have met leaders from the same countries. The list does not include telephone calls or meetings with officials such as foreign ministers.

Vatican Police Raid Drug-Fueled Gay Orgy At Home Of Cardinal’s Aide – Breitbart

In a sordid new sex scandal, Vatican police raided the apartment of a 50-year-old priest, breaking up a gay orgy fueled by drugs and alcohol.

During last week’s blitz, Msgr. Luigi Capozzi, assistant to Cardinal Francesco Coccopalmerio of the Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts, was arrested by the Vatican gendarmerie and sent briefly to a Roman clinic for drug detox. The priest, a native of Salerno, is currently on retreat at an unspecified convent in Italy.

Capozzi’s apartment where the raid took place is in the palace of the Sant’Uffizio within the Vatican City, where a number of high-ranking prelates have lived, including then-Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger before being elected Pope.

Theories abound regarding who tipped off the police concerning the sordid affair, but reports suggest that Capozzi had made a number of enemies. According to local media, the apartment where Capozzi lived – the scene of the raid – was never supposed to be assigned to a mere secretary of a department head, but was reserved for higher level prelates of the Roman Curia…

House Dem IT Suspects Wanted Untraceable Payments, And Sure Enough, Millions Disappeared – Daily Caller

A Pakistani family under criminal investigation by the U.S. Capitol Police for abusing their access to the House of Representatives information technology (IT) system may have engaged in myriad other questionable schemes besides allegedly placing “ghost employees” on the congressional payroll.

Terrible News For Illinois: Moody’s Puts State On Review For Downgrade To Junk Despite Budget – Zero Hedge

The passage of Illinois’ budget, which is scheduled for tomorrow despite the veto of Gov. Rauner which was duly overriden on July 4, was supposed to be critical catalyst that saved the state from a downgrade to junk status by the rating agencies, a first in US history.

Unfortunately, moments ago Moody’s said that the passage of the budget may have been too little too late, and moments ago the rating agency said that it had placed the rating of Illinois’s Baa3 general obligation under review for possible downgrade, citing the state’s failure to fully enact timely budget for fiscal year that began July, and its failure to achieve broad political consensus on how to move toward balanced financial operations.

A downgrade from Baa3, even by just one notch, means that Illinois would become the first US state rated junk, potentially forcing many muni bond managers to dump its bonds, and sending its costs of funding sharply higher despite a relief rally that took place today on hopes the state’s day of reckoning had been pushed indefinitely into the future…

This week, U.S. District Court Judge Vanessa Gilmore issued an order stripping 54-year-old Jose Arizmendi of his U.S. citizenship and taking away all rights and privileges, information released by the U.S. Department of Justice revealed.

In April 1996, Arizmendi had pleaded guilty to aggravated sexual assault of a child in Harris County. According to prosecutors, soon after entering his plea, he applied for naturalization. During a subsequent interview about his application in October 1996, Arizmendi was asked by an immigration official if he had ever been arrested, indicted, charged, or detained for breaking any laws while in the country…

Leftist Assclown Update: Obama Warns Americans About Too Much Patriotism On 4th Of July Weekend – American Mirror

While most Americans are gathering with family and community this weekend to celebrate the most exceptional country in the history of the world, Mr. Hope and Change is halfway around the world talking doom and gloom – and criticizing his successor.

Barack Obama visited Indonesia this weekend, and in a series of appearances, attacked love of country and the policies of Donald Trump.

Trump’s War Of Annihilation Strategy Against ISIS Frees Military To Quickly Seize Territory – Washington Times

President Trump’s war of annihilation against the Islamic State played out this spring in the Syrian town of Tabqa, a critical prize in the ongoing final march to Raqqa.

Defense Secretary James Mattis announced the annihilation strategy in mid-May, but before that commanders in Iraq and Syria got the go-ahead to fight ISIS, as the Pentagon calls the terrorist army, Trump-style.

Under President Obama, U.S. Army Special Forces assigned to Syrian Democratic Forces needed special approval from Washington for virtually all tactical moves amid the politically complex theater of Americans, Arabs, Kurds, Turks and Syrians.

In Tabqa, where the city, its dam and its airfield were the objectives, the Green Berets decided they needed an airlift. Suddenly minus red tape, Arabs, Kurds and Americans were helicoptering into battle, and they quickly seized territory.

Under Mr. Obama, Islamic State terrorists could at times retreat from towns, immune from airstrikes if they used civilians as cover…

Federal Judge Blocks California Gun Magazine Confiscation Scheme – Washington Free Beacon

A federal judge granted a preliminary injunction on Thursday that blocks California from enforcing their gun magazine confiscation law.

U.S. District Judge Roger T. Benitez said in his ruling that the law, which would make it illegal to possess any gun magazine capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition, likely violates the Second Amendment rights of the plaintiffs in the case. He ordered that California immediately stop enforcing the law pending further legal action.

“The Court does not lightly enjoin a state statute, even on a preliminary basis,” Judge Benitez said in the ruling. “However, just as the Court is mindful that a majority of California voters approved Proposition 63 and that the government has a legitimate interest in protecting the public from gun violence…

Senator Lee Pushes Full Repeal Of Obamacare If GOP Can’t Strike A Healthcare Deal – Washington Examiner

Utah Sen. Mike Lee said Senate Republicans should jump back on board a plan they all backed 18 months ago and vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act in full if they cannot find a deal on the Senate GOP healthcare bill.

Lee said on CBS Sunday that Republicans were fine with repealing the law in full in December 2015 and should do the same if they find that an agreement on the Better Care Reconciliation Act is out of reach.

“What we ought to do is get back to what I’ve been suggesting for the last six months, and that is to push full repeal and then go through a step-by-step process to determine what comes next,” he said.

Lee is one of the conservative holdouts who has refused to back the Senate Republican healthcare plan to repeal and replace parts of Obamacare. He’s found the bill as written is not conservative enough and doesn’t go far enough in fulfilling the campaign promise Republicans have run on since the bill passed in 2010…

Trump Cuts White House Budget, Saves American Taxpayers $22 Million – Breitbart

President Donald Trump ran for office saying that the federal government spends too much. And now, with his own budget, he is leading the way by cutting spending in the White House and saving the American taxpayers a projected $22 million.

The savings come from a cut in the amount spent on Michelle Obama’s budget as First Lady, an end to the large number of “czars” and so-called “fellowships” that Obama employed, and a smaller White House workforce, Forbes magazine reported.

The hero was Brian Karem, the sweaty, surly and unshaven correspondent for Playboy, who whined that Sarah Huckabee-Sanders, the Deputy White House Press Secretary, was “bullying” the abused media.

Vox dubbed Karem “heroic” for defending “CNN’s honor.” The media’s “honor” has fallen so low that it needs defending by the red light district. If the media’s honor gets any lower, its honor will need an assist from the Mafia, Mexican drug cartels, NAMBLA and the Toxic Waste Association of America.

Karem claimed to be inspired by the tantrums of CNN’s Jim Acosta. CNN was particularly upset by the White House denying the network the precious video that it needs to show off its latest Trump attacks.

Illinois Senate Democrats Approve 32% Income Tax Hike – WGN

Illinois Senate Democrats decided to go it alone in the budget battle Monday, approving a spending plan that would raise the income tax rate in the state by 32 percent in a party-line vote.

The measure passed 32 to 26 would increase the tax rate to nearly five percent. The Illinois House will consider the measure next, but if it passes in its current form it would likely be vetoed by Gov. Rauner. Rauner said previously he won’t approve any increase unless a property tax freeze is also included. The governor and the GOP want a freeze of at least four years, but Senate Democrats have proposed a two-year freeze.

There was a lot of contentious partisan debate on the plan to add $5.4 billion dollars to state government. The bill also raises the corporate tax rate to 7 percent, and adds service taxes for things like dry cleaning and tattoos.

There are only eight days before this legislative session ends, and during that time both chambers will need a supermajority to approve a budget…

Some 150,000 individuals on Rhode Island’s voter rolls are not Rhode Island residents, the state’s top elections administrator has found.

Gorbea says this group of non-state residents is primarily composed of citizens who have since moved to other jurisdictions or died and does not suggest widespread fraud.

“It’s not really fraud,” Gorbea told the Journal. “It’s really just inaccuracies.”

Netherlands Considers Euthanasia For Healthy People, Doctors Say Things Are ‘Getting Out Of Hand’ – The Federalist

Politicians in the Netherlands are discussing the possibility of legalizing euthanasia for healthy people. The proposed “Completed Life Bill” would allow any person age 75 or over who decides their life is “complete” to receive euthanasia. It doesn’t matter if they are otherwise perfectly healthy.

Under current Dutch law, a person only becomes eligible for euthanasia when they have a terminal illness and are suffering unbearably. Pia Dijkstra, an MP for Dutch political party D66, is preparing to introduce the Completed Life Bill. D66 spearheaded most of the groundbreaking socially progressive legislation for which the Netherlands is famous. They are historically a smaller party – they’ve never had a Prime Minister – but they’ve proven themselves to be politically effective.

Even New York Times Correction Is Incorrect – Garth Kant

President Donald Trump tweeted:

The publication nicknamed “the paper of record” sought to correct a critical error that has been commonly accepted as gospel truth and repeated incessantly by both the major media and Democrats since January.

The error is the assertion that all 17 intelligence agencies came to the conclusion in an intelligence report issued on Jan. 6 that the Russians tried to interfere in the 2016 presidential election.

Updated Ramadan Rage 2017 Final Death Count: 1,639 In About 30 Countries – Breitbart

The final fatality tally for jihadi attacks during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan increased to 1,639, primarily fueled by victims who succumbed to their injuries, reveals an updated Breitbart News count of terror incidents during the period.

With a total of 3,343 casualties, including 1,704 injuries, Ramadan 2017 is one of the bloodiest holy months in recent history. The number of deaths this year marked a nearly four-fold increase from the estimated 421 people killed by Islamic extremists last year.

There were nearly 160 terror incidents in about 30 predominantly Muslim countries this year, including one jihadi attack in the United States. Soon after the holiest month for Muslims ended last Saturday, Breitbart News reported that jihadist organizations had killed 1,627 people during Ramadan.

However, after taking into account people who succumbed to their injuries throughout the month and government entities changing the casualty count after Breitbart News initially documented the attacks, this news outlet has determined the final updated tally to be 3,343 casualties (1,639 killed, 1,704 injured)…

Oh, and a bunch of syringes with methamphetemine in them.

They start with a faulty 2016 baseline that predicts that 18 million people will be covered by Obamacare in 2017, when the people who are actually in charge of tracking Obamacare enrollments, the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services, report that the number will be between 10 and 11 million.

This score is based on number of tweets, date of the last tweet, and ratio of followers to friends.”

Berniegate: How Jane Sanders Offers A Window Into Liberal Scheming – William Marshall

“The road to hell is paved with good intentions,” goes the line so often used to describe hare-brained liberal schemes.

But the tale provides so much more than affirming that age-old aphorism. It offers a microcosmic view into the mind and methodology of liberal policymakers everywhere.

In short, the scheme concocted by the former Democratic Socialist presidential candidate’s wife, Jane Sanders, when she was president of Burlington College serves up everything we’ve come to expect of modern Democrats: delusional visions of glorious benefits to be realized by the masses if we follow their screwball ideas; a shady real estate deal; phony and fraudulent claims used as the basis for getting other people to part with their money; alleged pressure from a powerful Democratic politician on a government-regulated institution to go along with their idea, or else; and, of course, no modern Democratic scandal is complete without a computer server potentially figuring in – in this case, a stolen one…

China’s National Petroleum Corporation Suspends Fuel Sales To North Korea – Reuters

China National Petroleum Corp has suspended sales of fuel to North Korea over concerns the state-owned oil company won’t get paid, as pressure mounts on Pyongyang to rein in its nuclear and missile programmes, three sources told Reuters.

It’s unclear how long the suspension will last. A prolonged cut would threaten critical supplies of fuel and force North Korea to find alternatives to its main supplier of diesel and gasoline, as scrutiny of China’s close commercial ties with its increasingly isolated neighbour intensifies.

CNPC and the Ministry of Commerce did not respond to requests for comment. North Korea’s embassy in Beijing declined to comment.

Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Lu Kang, asked about the sale suspension and whether the Chinese government put pressure on CNPC to make this decision, said: “I do not understand this situation you are talking about” and declined to elaborate.

A source with direct knowledge of the matter said CNPC decided to put fuel sales on hold “over the last month or two” and described it as a “commercial decision”…

Rhode Island Discovers 150,000 Voters Erroneously On Rolls – Daily Caller
.

.
Rhode Island Secretary of State Nellie Gorbea has found 150,000 people wrongly placed on the state’s voter rolls, The Providence Journal reported Wednesday.

During the 2016 election, the state held a total of 781,770 registered voters. According to The Providence Journal, almost 65,000 names were cleared away since Gorbea became R.I. Sec of State in 2015. An additional 30,000 were classified as “inactive.”

Gorbea said she would not describe it as “fraud.” She added, “It’s really just inaccuracies.”

It is a difficult process to purge voters from the rolls as a result of Rhode Island law and federal law. The Providence Journal notes that if an official election mailer is sent back as undeliverable, the voter can be simply called inactive…

John Podesta Hauled In For Closed-Door Questioning By House Intel Committee – Zero Hedge

Looks like Johnny’s got some ‘splainin to do. Former Hillary Clinton Campaign Chairman John Podesta was hauled in front of the House Intelligence Committee during a closed session on Tuesday – ostensibly to answer questions about the Obama administratio’s handling of intelligence that Russia tried to hack state voting systems – and, strangely enough, it’s Democrats who are taking the credit for bringing him in.

As Bloomberg reported, Podesta met behind closed doors with the committee to answer questions about exactly why former President Barack Obama decided to sit on intelligence reports that Russia-backed hackers tried to infiltrate voting systems in 20 states after President Donald Trump took to twitter to point out the obvious hypocrisy in how Congress has aggressively scrutinized him for “collusion” and “obstruction” when it’s becoming increasingly clear that Democrats committed these exact offenses.

And now, Democrats, including Californians Dianne Feinstein, the ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and Adam Schiff, ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, are apparently turning on their own…

Sarah Palin Sues New York Times After Editorial Blames Her For 2011 Gabby Giffords Shooting – NewsBusters

After Republican Rep. Steve Scalise was shot by a Bernie Sanders supporter June 14, Democrats came out in droves to repeatedly blame Republicans and President Trump for the “rhetoric” that supposedly caused the attack. That’s right; a left-wing Bernie supporter tried to assassinate a Republican politician and the media’s reaction was to blame the victim. The New York Times took the same approach but also used the opportunity to smear Sarah Palin in an editorial that reminded readers of the Gabby Giffords shooting in 2011.

The original New York Times editorial that appeared online the day of the attack and the following morning in the paper’s print edition, had this troubling paragraph:

In 2011, when Jared Lee Loughner opened fire in a supermarket parking lot, grievously wounding Representative Gabby Giffords and killing six people, including a 9-year-old girl, the link to political incitement was clear. Before the shooting, Sarah Palin’s political action committee circulated a map of targeted electoral districts that put Ms. Giffords and 19 other Democrats under stylized cross hairs…

Yazidi Sex Slave Tricked Into Eating Her Infant Son After ISIS Butchered Him – New York Post

A sex slave captured by ISIS was forced to eat her 1-year-old son with a side of rice, according to a gut-wrenching report.

The unnamed Yazidi woman – who was starved for three days in an Iraq basement – unwittingly ate the boy after barbaric guards cooked and served him to her, an Iraqi politician said in a TV interview Monday.

“One of the women whom we managed to retrieve from ISIS said that she was held in a cellar for three days without food or water,” Iraqi MP Vian Dakhill told the Egyptian TV channel Extra News.

“Afterwards, they brought her a plate of rice and meat. She ate the food because she was very hungry,” he said, according to a translation by the Middle East Media Research Institute.

“When she was finished they said to her: ‘We cooked your 1-year-old son that we took from you, and this is what you just ate.’”

‘Concerning’ Amounts Of Fecal Bacteria Found In Drinks Sold At UK’s Top Three Coffee Chains – RT

Traces of fecal bacteria have been found in drinks sold by Britain’s three major coffee chains, a BBC investigation has found.

Seven out of 10 samples from Costa, which has been voted the nation’s favorite coffee shop for the third year in a row, were found to contain the bacteria.

Three out of 10 samples from Starbucks and Caffe Nero were found to contain the bacteria, known as fecal coliform.

Florida Woman Strangles Pet Chihuahua To Death After It Bites Her Hand – Daily Mail

A woman in Florida has been arrested on animal cruelty charges for allegedly choking to death her pet chihuahua.

She was arrested after allegedly confessing her crime to medical staff at a local hospital where she went after being bitten by the animal.

Evans told police at her home that it was the third time the animal had bitten her this year, NBC Miami reported on Tuesday.

She used its leash to strangle it and then buried its body in her back yard, police say.

Senate Judiciary Committee Targets Obama ‘Unmasking’ Operatives – Washington Times

Former National Security Adviser Susan E. Rice, in addition to other top officials from the Obama administration, have come under suspicion during recent months amid accusations that they inappropriately “unmasked” requests to identify Trump associates caught up in clandestine surveillance of Russian operatives prior to and during the immediate aftermath of the November election.

While Republican lawmakers have during recent months led the charge for a deeper investigation into the unmasking allegations, it was a key Democrat on the Judiciary Committee who raised the issue during a public committee hearing on Tuesday, asserting that lawmakers hope to explore it more deeply with FBI officials during a secret hearing slated for Wednesday…

Senate Republicans Delay Vote On Craptastic Healthcare Bill Until After July 4th Recess – Daily Caller

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced Tuesday that the Senate will delay the vote on its version of Obamacare repeal until after the July 4 recess.

The Senate released a revised healthcare bill Monday that takes out the individual mandate and replaces it with a penalty for people who go without insurance. If the Senate passes the bill, people who choose to go without insurance for over 63 days will have a six-month waiting period imposed upon them before they can reenroll in the individual insurance market.

The Congressional Budget Office expected that some 22 million people would lose insurance by 2026.

The House bill, passed in early May, was originally expected to leave 24 million people without insurance, but was later amended to 23 million. The Senate’s version, after weeks of debate, is only anticipated to save an additional 1 million of the expected loss in the insurance market.

Minuteman Health of Massachusetts and New Hampshire announced it is withdrawing from the Affordable Care Act exchanges in 2018, leaving only four co-ops in operation. The co-op will stop writing business on January 1 and organize a new company, Minuteman Insurance Company, instead.

The company cited issues with Obamacare’s risk-adjustment program, which is the program that shifts money away from those with healthier customers to those with sicker enrollees. Minuteman Health said that the negative impact of this program had been “substantial.”

“Unfortunately, the program has not worked as intended,” the company said. “It has been difficult for insurers to predict their risk-adjustment obligations, which has led some to withdraw from the ACA market.”

“The program also unfairly penalizes issuers like MHI that are small, low cost, and experience high growth,” the company said. “The significant relative impact from risk adjustment has been the principal driver of a reduction in MHI’s surplus and capital over 2 [sic] time.”…

Did The FBI Retaliate Against Michael Flynn By Launching Russia Probe? – Circa

The FBI launched a criminal probe against former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn two years after the retired Army general roiled the bureau’s leadership by intervening on behalf of a decorated counterterrorism agent who accused now-Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe and other top officials of sexual discrimination, according to documents and interviews.

Flynn’s intervention on behalf of Supervisory Special Agent Robyn Gritz was highly unusual, and included a letter in 2014 on his official Pentagon stationary, a public interview in 2015 supporting Gritz’s case and an offer to testify on her behalf. His offer put him as a hostile witness in a case against McCabe, who was soaring through the bureau’s leadership ranks.

Study: Seattle’s Minimum Wage Increase Goes Horribly Wrong – Washington Examiner

Seattle’s hotly-disputed $15-an-hour minimum wage law is reportedly hurting the exact people it was supposed to help.

Low-wage workers in Seattle have seen their earnings decline by an estimated $125 per month, according to a National Bureau of Economic Research working paper titled, “Minimum Wage Increases, Wages, and Low-Wage Employment: Evidence from Seattle.”

That’s an earnings decline of $1,500 per year.

Several employers have reduced their payrolls, the study reported, adding that others have cut employee hours or the size of their staff.

The city enacted the first phase of the Seattle Minimum Wage Ordinance in 2015, raising the minimum wage from $9.47 to $11 per hour. It enacted the second phase in 2016, which boosted the minimum to $13 per hour for larger employers. Its eventual plan is to see that amount boosted all the way to $15 per hour…

Conservatives Hail Supreme Court Decision In Latest Religious Liberty Case – CNS

Arkansas had resisted, arguing that the birth certificate was a record of parentage for the child, rather than a document about the marriage.

“Not only will this bill help provide our troops and commanders with the resources they need to do their jobs, it also will ensure the success of our missions, the safety of our people, and the stability we need around the globe to make a brighter and more secure future for all.”

The bill will be considered Monday in a subcommittee meeting. President Donald Trump’s administration had requested $603 billion for the defense budget but Congress asked for more…

Gingrich: Obamacare Repeal Is Turning Republicans Into A Bunch Of Lemmings – Daily Caller
.

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich told The Daily Caller News Foundation he’s concerned Republicans may be about to replace their party elephant symbol with the lemming when it comes to the Senate consideration of Obamacare replacement.

He’s worried about the emerging “Washington centric stupidity” where someone is chanting, “we’ve got to go off the cliff because otherwise we’ll look bad” before the August recess.

He says health care policy is “life and death.” “It is ten times more complicated than national defense and you can’t fix it with a handful of congressional staffers sitting in a room somewhere, thinking they’re smart.”

If the Republicans get health care wrong, he predicts, they will lose the House…

New York Times Shills For Al Jazeera – Clarion Project

The New York Times has become the new mouthpiece for Al Jazeera, the Qatari state-owned media outlet which the monarchy uses to spew its extremism.

In an opinion piece written by the editorial board of the Times, the prestigious newspaper objects to attempts by six Gulf States – Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Yemen – to “muzzle… the state-funded news station.”

The demand – among 12 other ultimata issued by the Gulf States – is due to Qatar’s support of terrorism and Al Jazeera’s role in that project.

Over the past decades, Qatar has pumped hundreds of millions of dollars into the U.S.-designated terror organization Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood’s affiliate in Gaza. In March, Hamas leader Khaled Meshal unveiled the new Hamas Charter in the Sheraton Hotel in Doha.

As recently as February, Qatar sent $100 million to Gaza, as part of a $1 billion package they promised the terrorist-run entity after starting its latest war with Israel…

Epic: Homeowners’ Response To Government Request For Access To Property Goes Viral – I Have The Truth

One couple’s tongue-in-cheek reply to a state agency’s request for access to their property has gone viral across social media.

Larry and Amanda Anderson received the formal request from the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife last month. The reason given by the state for requesting access to “survey the creek on your property” was to look for the “foothill yellow-legged frog.”

According to the letter, ODFW is concerned with declining numbers of the frog’s population.

After considering the request, late last week the Andersons sent a detailed reply to the state agency.

The letter does grant permission for the state to enter the property and survey the creek. However, it also included a litany of requirements needed to be completed (permits, vehicle inspections, stamps, etc.) before any representative would be allowed on the property.

Additionally, once the permits, stamps and inspections had been satisfied, the letter went on to list the only kind of “survey gear” allowed to be used in capturing the frogs, mandating the nets be “made of 100% organic cotton netting with no longer than an 18″ handle.”…

Pro-Hillary Firm Behind Fake Trump Dossier Stonewalling Investigators – New York Post

The Senate Judiciary Committee earlier this month threatened to subpoena the firm, Fusion GPS, after it refused to answer questions and provide records to the panel identifying who financed the error-ridden dossier, which was circulated during the election and has sparked much of the Russia scandal now engulfing the White House.

What is the company hiding? Fusion GPS describes itself as a “research and strategic intelligence firm” founded by “three former Wall Street Journal investigative reporters.” But congressional sources say it’s actually an opposition-research group for Democrats, and the founders, who are more political activists than journalists, have a pro-Hillary, anti-Trump agenda…

Muslima Woman Arrested For Setting Iowa Mosque On Fire – Jihad Watch

Neil Gorsuch’s First SCOTUS Dissent Has Conservatives Cheering – Bizpac Review

Indeed, Gorsuch’s first dissent, penned almost two weeks after drafting his first majority opinion, offers fascinating insight into the new justice’s thought processes (hint: It’s a lot more Scalia than Souter).

The case, Perry v. Merit Systems Protection Board, dealt with the process behind the appeal of a federal census worker’s employment dispute.

The majority opinion overturned the D.C. Circuit Court’s ruling, which was against the petitioner. But Gorsuch and Thomas actually believe it’s not the court’s job to make laws. What a concept!…

German police recently raided the homes of 36 people accused of writing “hateful” posts on social media, with most of the raids targeting right-wing individuals.

Thirty-three of the raids concerned “politically motivated right-wing incitement,” while only two raids targeted people accused of left-wing extremist content. One of the raids targeted someone accused of making threats based on sexual orientation, according to the New York Times.

“Our free society must not allow a climate of fear, threat, criminal violence and violence either on the street or on the internet,” said Holger Münch, president of the Federal Criminal Police Office.

An Arkansas mall store employee is smarting after a would-be thief bit her while attempting to steal a stripper pole.

According to KATV, a woman that worked at the Spencer’s store in Little Rock’s Park Plaza Mall was attacked after a female suspect entered the store in an attempt to return an item for cash or store credit.

Cops say the employee noted the suspect looked familiar as she was believed to have previously stolen items from the store. Spencer’s manager told police the woman wanted a stripper pole instead of store credit.

Frustrated, the suspect then attempted to leave the shop with stripper pole in hand.

The Spencer’s employee gave chase, eventually recovering the pole from her. In retaliation, the alleged thief bit the employee on the upper right arm. She then fled the mall.

ISIS Leader And Mastermind Behind Massive Truck Bomb Has Been Killed In Afghanistan – Circa

Mansoor was the operational commander of the military wing of the terrorist group’s Afghanistan branch, known as ISIS Khorasan, according to the ISIS Clip.

How The Dems Burned $40 Mil To Lose 4 Elections And Scam Supporters – Daniel Greenfield

By the time it was over, Jon Ossoff, an awkward immature hipster who didn’t even live in the district, had raised $23.6 million and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee had burned through another $5 million. Other groups threw in around $2.6 million to achieve absolutely nothing.

$31 million had been spent and wasted on history’s most expensive congressional election. And the Dem experts congratulated themselves that they had lost by a smaller margin than in the past.

They had spent $30 million more than in their first special election in Kansas to gain a whole 1%.

Oops! State Of New Hampshire Accidentally Passes Bill Legalizing Murder – Law Newz

The State Senate and House in New Hampshire both passed a new bill meant to protect pregnant women, but it would’ve given them a little too much protection. The bill, SB 66-FN, calls for amending the state’s criminal code to apply the first degree murder statute to the killing of fetuses after 20 weeks of pregnancy. The bill would call for more severe consequences to someone who inflicts harm on a pregnant woman, resulting in the loss of a fetus.

In order to make it clear that this does not apply to women who get abortions or doctors who legally perform them, the bill aimed to provide exemptions, but it went a little too far. The bill, as drafted, says that nothing in the statute applies to “Any act committed by the pregnant woman.”

So basically, the bill says that pregnant women can kill people and they would go unpunished…

Leftist Democrats Using Sham Lawsuits To Try And Obstruct, Impeach Trump – Daily Signal

Nearly 200 Democratic politicians – 198 in total – are now plaintiffs in two lawsuits against President Donald Trump.

The claims they raise are substantially similar to those made in a separate lawsuit brought by the advocacy group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), which was filed against Trump in January.

All three groups of plaintiffs claim Trump is violating the Foreign Emoluments Clause and the President’s Compensation Clause of the U.S. Constitution because, like many presidents before him, he owns assets that continue to earn profits while he is president.

But these “emoluments” lawsuits have another commonality: They all advance the campaign of liberal groups and the Democrat Party to “resist” and ultimately impeach the president.

The bill repeals billions of dollars in taxes that were used to raise money for ObamaCare’s coverage expansion and also abolishes the law’s mandates to buy coverage.

The tax credits under ObamaCare to help people buy private coverage would be kept but reshaped so that they are less generous and cost the government less money.

“It’s time to act because ObamaCare is a direct attack on the middle class and American families deserve better than it’s failing status quo,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Thursday…

.

.
Several CIA contractors were kicked out of the agency for stealing more than $3,000 in snacks from vending machines, according to official documents newly obtained by BuzzFeed News.

The thefts took place starting in the fall of 2012 and continued through March 2013, according to a declassified Office of Inspector General report from October 2013. The report is one of hundreds only recently released to BuzzFeed News through a Freedom Of Information Act lawsuit filed in 2015.

The “theft scheme” involved unplugging a cable connecting the machines to an electronic payment system called FreedomPay, and then using “unfunded FreedomPay cards” to buy the snacks at no cost…

Brooklyn Public Library Hosts ‘Drag Queen Story Hour’ – Washington Free Beacon

The Brooklyn Public Library is hosting almost monthly “Drag Queen Story Hour” events that teach “gender fluidity” to preschoolers.

“Drag Queen Story Hour puts the rainbow in reading [and] also captures the imagination and play of childhood and gives kids glamorous, positive, and unabashedly queer role models!” according to a listing for an event last weekend posted on the library website.

The events began last fall, and are modeled off a program created by Michelle Tea, an “author of five memoirs,” in San Francisco.

One of the first story hours in Brooklyn featured the drag queen “Lil Miss Hot Mess,” reading from Tatterhood, a book of “feminist folktales.” Little Miss Hot Mess got her start in a gay bar in San Francisco.

“In the spirit of unfettered exploration of self that great books can prompt, the Feminist Press brings a new reading series for children to the Brooklyn Public Library, featuring classic tales read by drag queens,” the Brooklyn Public Library said in September…

Sears Canada Files For Bankruptcy – WPLG
.

.
Sears Canada filed for bankruptcy early Thursday, making it the latest casualty of the crisis among traditional brick-and-mortar retailers. It’s also another sign of trouble for the iconic retailer.

Sears Canada, which has more than 200 stores and about 17,000 employees, was spun-off as an independent company in 2012. But the filing is still bad news for Sears Holdings, which owns both the Sears and Kmart brands in the United States. Sears Holdings still owns 12% of its shares.

Sears Holdings CEO and principal shareholder Eddie Lampert, who has been struggling to keep the company afloat amid its own mounting losses, owns a total of 45% of Sears Canada both personally and through his hedge fund…

UK Man Sentenced To 20 Months For Anti-Muslim Posts On Facebook – Daily Caller

Nigel Pelham of Sussex, England, has been sentenced to 20 months in prison after being found guilty on “eight counts of publishing threatening written material intending to stir up religious hatred against Muslims,” according to the Sussex police.

Hate Crimes Sergeant Peter Allen said, “Nigel Pelham used Facebook to express some truly offensive views, with no understanding of how serious his actions were. Many people see social media as a harmless and sometimes faceless place to air their opinions, however I hope this shows we will not tolerate this type of behaviour and will act when someone reports their concern about what someone is posting.”

Pelham, 50, was convicted for eight posts he made between February and November of 2015, which included a post where he suggested people “put a Muslim on top of a bonfire.”

Sergeant Allen called on residents of Sussex to report their fellow citizens should they find anything offensive posted on social media…

In Major Diplomatic Shift, North Korea Open To Halting Nuclear, Missile Tests – Zero Hedge

Is Trump about to have his biggest diplomatic victory yet?

According to Yonhap, North Korea’s top envoy to India on Wednesday offered a conditional moratorium, i.e. halt, on his country’s nuclear and missile tests in what was said to be an “apparent bid to hold talks with the United States.” While the North Korean offer is conditional, its “demands” are hardly outrageous.

North Korea Ambassador to India Kye Chun-yong said Pyongyang is willing to talk in terms of freezing its nuclear and missile tests under certain circumstances. “If our demands is met, we can negotiate in terms of the moratorium of such as weapons testing,” Kye said in English in an interview posted on the website of India’s television station WION…

As Many As 5.7 Million Non-Citizens Voted In 2008 Election – Washington Times

A research group in New Jersey has taken a fresh look at postelection polling data and concluded that the number of noncitizens voting illegally in U.S. elections is likely far greater than previous estimates.

As many as 5.7 million noncitizens may have voted in the 2008 election, which put Barack Obama in the White House.

The research organization Just Facts, a widely cited, independent think tank led by self-described conservatives and libertarians, revealed its number-crunching in a report on national immigration.

Just Facts President James D. Agresti and his team looked at data from an extensive Harvard/YouGov study that every two years questions a sample size of tens of thousands of voters. Some acknowledge they are noncitizens and are thus ineligible to vote.

Just Facts’ conclusions confront both sides in the illegal voting debate: those who say it happens a lot and those who say the problem nonexistent…

An unknown assailant allegedly yelled “Allahu Akbar” before stabbing an off-duty police officer in the neck area at the Bishop Airport in Flint, Michigan on Wednesday, according to various reports.

The suspect is currently in custody, according to a Fox News report, and the FBI is investigating the incident as a possible terror attack. The officer, Lt. Jeff Neville, was taken to the hospital in critical condition, but has since been upgraded to stable after surgery, according to NBC.

“We are aware of reports that the attacker made statements immediately prior to or while attacking the officer, but it is too early to determine the nature of these alleged statements or whether or not this was an act of terrorism,” said the FBI in a statement…

Independent Investigators: Seth Rich ‘Likely’ Murdered By Contract Hitman – WorldNetDaily

DNC staffer Seth Rich, who was brutally murdered on July 10, 2016, on a street near his Washington home – sparking discussion that he might have been the source of party insider emails turned over to WikiLeaks during the 2016 presidential race – probably wasn’t the victim of a random homicide.

Or a robbery gone bad.

Rather, his murder “more likely (was) committed by a hired killer or serial murderer.”

Those are the conclusions of the Profiling Project, which released the results of a months-long investigation into Rich’s death on Tuesday.

The project, an “all-volunteer group of current and former George Washington University forensic psychology graduate students and instructors,” said it came together for the investigation to “aid the Washington, D.C., Metropolitan Police utilizing forensic psychology skills and tools in hopes of providing at least one actionable item.”…

Three-Time Oscar-Winner Daniel Day-Lewis Retires From Acting – Breitbart

Three-time Oscar-winning actor Daniel Day-Lewis announced his retirement from acting on Tuesday. The 60-year-old screen legend – considered by many to be among the greatest actors of his generation – said in a statement through his publicist that he had made a “private decision” to quit acting, and no further reason was given for the abrupt announcement.

“Daniel Day-Lewis will no longer be working as an actor. He is immensely grateful to all of his collaborators and audiences over the many years,” the star’s publicist, Leslee Dart, said in a statement to Variety. “This is a private decision and neither he nor his representatives will make any further comment on this subject.”

Day-Lewis is the only actor to have won three Best Actor Academy Awards (Jack Nicholson and Walter Brennan each won three apiece, but not all in the lead Actor category), for his roles in Lincoln (2012), There Will Be Blood (2007), and My Left Foot (1989)…

House Passes Bill Expanding Tax Incentives For Nuclear Power Plants – Washington Examiner

The House passed legislation on Tuesday to expand the use of tax incentives for new nuclear power plants well into the next decade.

The bipartisan nuclear tax bill passed by voice vote, and had 32 co-sponsors at the time it was approved.

“Without this legislation, the nuclear power industry may cease to exist as we know it in this country, which is exactly why passing this bill now is more important than ever,” said Rep. Tom Rice, R-S.C., a lead sponsor of the bill. “We need to give these plants the certainty of these tax credits, just as Congress intended.”

The southeast, where Rice is from, is one of the only regions of the country that is building new nuclear power plants, as the nation’s aging fleet of older plants continues to face economic and market constraints that are forcing them to shut down prematurely.

The bill removes a restriction for nuclear power plants to enter into service by 2020 in order to benefit from the production tax credit, which subsidizes the electricity generated from the plants by 1.8 cents per kilowatt hour…

Congress is considering new legislation that would permit lawmakers to carry a concealed firearm wherever they perform official duties across the United States, according to a copy of the new bill that marks an unprecedented effort to help lawmakers confront a growing threat to their safety.

Rep. Brian Babin (R., Texas) introduced the legislation on Tuesday, about a week after a radicalized shooter opposed to President Donald Trump and Republicans shot Rep. Steve Scalise (R., La.), a congressional staffer, a lobbyist, and two Capitol police officers in Virginia.

The legislation would enable certified members of Congress to carry a concealed weapon “in nearly every conceivable scenario,” according to information released by Babin’s office…

Feds Seize Nearly 100 Pounds Of Fentanyl In Unprecedented Drug Bust – Washington Times

Federal authorities said Monday that a narcotics probe has resulted in the seizure of nearly 100 pounds of fentanyl, or enough of the drug to kill more than a million people.

Drug Enforcement Administration agents seized about 97 pounds of the synthetic opiate during the course of investigating an alleged narcotics ring in San Diego, federal prosecutors announced Monday.

Details of the seizure were unveiled in tandem with the unsealing of a related indictment against three of the operation’s purported suspects: Jonathan Ibarra, 45; Anna Baker, 30; and Hector Fernando Garcia, 46.

Federal agents determined that Mr. Ibarra “received instructions” on Nov. 20, 2016 for using a female courier later identified as Ms. Baker to transport an unidentified narcotic, according to the documents.

DEA agents armed with the information requested a traffic stop of Ms. Baker’s rented vehicle afterwards and uncovered about 15 kilograms of what authorities ultimately determined to be fentanyl…

Illinois Comptroller: “The State Can No Longer Function” – Zero Hedge

With just 10 days to go until Illinois enters its third year without a budget, resulting in the state’s imminent downgrade to junk status and potentially culminating in a default for the state whose unpaid bills now surpass $15 billion, Democratic Illinois Comptroller Susana Mendoza issued a warning to Illinois Gov. Rauner and other elected officials on Tuesday, saying in a letter that her office has “very serious concerns” it may no longer be able to guarantee “timely and predictable payments” for some core services.

In the letter posted on her website, Mendoza who over the weekend warned that Illinois is “in massive crisis mode” and that “this is not a false alarm” said the state is “effectively hemorrhaging money” due to various court orders and laws that have left government spending roughly $600 million more a month than it’s taking in. Mendoza said her office will continue to make debt payments as required, but indicated that services most likely to be affected include long-term care, hospice and supportive living centers for seniors…

Racist Professor Who Made Belligerent Appearance On ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ Suspended Indefinitely – Daily Caller

A former professor at Essex County College was indefinitely suspended two days after her heated appearance on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

Lisa Durden was told that she had to cancel her classes and report to Essex County College’s human resources department two days after a June 6 appearance on the prime time Fox News show. School officials then indefinitely suspended her.

“They did this to humiliate me,” Durden told The Star-Ledger. “Essex County College publicly lynched me in front of my students.”

Durden went off on the show in defense of a black-only Memorial Day party organized by Black Lives Matter, dodging a direct question from Carlson on whether it’s okay to exclude people based on race.

“I thought the whole point of Black Lives Matter, or one of the points, would be to speak out against singling people out on the basis of their race and punishing them for that because you can’t control what your race is, and yet they seem to be doing that, explain that to me,” Tucker said…
