‘You Owe Me For Making My Grandmother A Slave’: Disabled Man Attacked On Bus Because He’s Old And White – Law Newz

A disabled, homeless man was attacked on a public bus in Maryland – apparently because of his age and race.

The 52-year-old passenger, who is white and not being named in press reports, was riding the Q1 bus on Sunday, September 24 when 27-year-old Marquis Evans-Royster, who is black, allegedly approached him and said: “You owe me for making my grandmother a slave.”

The homeless and disabled man reportedly remained calm after being accused of the impossible crime according to the local ABC affiliate.

After his target ignored the charge, Evans-Royster is said to have begun rifling through the 52-year-old’s pockets. Eventually, bystanders felt compelled to intervene. This upset the alleged attacker even more.

As fellow passengers cast their lot with the man being assaulted, Evans-Royster apparently charged at them in retaliation. Then he allegedly spit in the homeless man’s face and threatened to throw a container full of urine on him…

More Cases Of Voter Fraud Pile Up As Liberals Look The Other Way – Daily Signal
.

.
The Heritage Foundation added another round of cases this week to its ever-growing Voter Fraud Database.

Accounting for these new additions, the database now documents 1,088 proven instances of election fraud, including 949 cases that have resulted in criminal convictions, 48 that have ended in civil penalties, and 75 that have seen defendants enter diversion programs.

Americans should be alarmed, not only because Heritage has compiled so many examples of fraud – impacting nearly every state and elections for all levels of government – but because this figure is likely just the tip of the iceberg.

The Heritage database is not a comprehensive tally of election fraud. That figure would almost certainly be substantially larger…

ACLU Sues To Block Ballot Initiative On Transgender Bathroom, Locker Room Use – Helena Independent Record

The ACLU of Montana filed a lawsuit Tuesday challenging the constitutionality of a proposed ballot initiative that would require transgender residents to use public bathrooms and locker rooms that correspond with their sex at birth.

The lawsuit was filed Tuesday in District Court in Cascade County on behalf of seven transgender Montanans, the parents of a transgender 9-year-old and the city of Missoula. The Bozeman City Commission voted Monday to join the effort.

“This proposed measure legalizes discrimination,” said Alex Rate, legal director for the ACLU of Montana.

The ACLU and the plaintiffs argue the Locker Room Privacy Act would deprive transgender Montanans of equal protection under the law and violate their rights to privacy, dignity and due process.

The lawsuit asks the court to declare the initiative unconstitutional and to prevent Secretary of State Corey Stapleton from placing it on the November 2018 ballot…

The Syrian city of Raqqa was liberated from ISIS fighters Tuesday, a commander with U.S.-backed Syrian forces said, announcing the “fall of the capital of terrorism.” Brig. Gen.

It Figures… DACA Illegal Aliens Working In California Government On Immigration Issues – Breitbart

Illegal aliens who have received temporary amnesty from the Obama administration are reportedly working as interns and aides in local California government on immigration issues.

Under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, nearly 800,000 illegal aliens have been allowed to remain in the U.S. and work legally. Last month, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced on behalf of President Donald Trump that DACA would officially be ended in March 2018.

A new report by the San Jose Mercury News reveals the extent to which DACA beneficiaries have been given opportunities ahead of Americans, with many working as aides and interns on immigration-related issues in San Jose, California.

For instance, Mario Lopez, an illegal alien in the DACA program, works as an aide and adviser to Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors President Dave Cortese. Lopez advises Cortese on immigration issues, despite technically being in the U.S. illegally…

If You Live In One Of These Nine States, You’ll Soon Need A Passport To Fly Domestically – Circa

In just over three months, residents from nine states will be required to show a U.S. passport to board any flight, including domestic travel, according to new TSA guidelines.

“Starting January 22, 2018, you will need a driver’s license or ID from a state compliant with the REAL ID Act, a state that has an extension for compliance, or an alternate ID to fly,” the Department of Homeland Security wrote in a public flier.

People who possess an ID from Kentucky, Maine, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Washington will need to use a passport to travel domestically if the states do not upgrade their security standards.

Passed by Congress in 2005, the REAL ID Act establishes the minimum security standards for state-issued driver’s licenses and ID cards. It prohibits federal agencies, like the TSA, from accepting such cards for certain official purposes, including boarding federally regulated commercial aircraft…

Networks Blast Trump Over End Of Obamacare Subsidies, Hide Their Illegality – NewsBusters

On Friday and over the weekend, ABC, CBS and NBC reacted with their typical anti-Trump fervor to the President’s decision to end federal subsidies of insurance companies through ObamaCare, but only a meager portion of broadcast news coverage – barely three percent – tipped viewers off to the fact those payments were unconstitutional in the first place.

Instead, news coverage touted the anecdotal stories of those benefiting from the payments, and the “fear” they faced with the prospect of those subsidies ending, without seeming to care very much that no proper authorization for the government spending ever existed.

From Friday morning, October 13, through Sunday evening, October 15, the ABC, CBS, and NBC morning and evening news shows aired a total of 38 minutes, 8 seconds of coverage of the Trump administration’s decision to end the illegal subsidy payments begun under the Obama administration. Only 71 seconds of that airtime – none of it on NBC! – was spent on the important point that these payments were being made without Congressional authorization, and thus unconstitutional, according to a May 2016 federal court decision…

Dumbest Ex-VP In History Awards RINO Douchebag Who Blocked Obamacare Repeal With Medal Previously Won By Crooked Hillary – Washington Examiner

Sen. John McCain received this year’s National Constitution Center Liberty Medal in Philadelphia on Monday night and was honored by former Vice President Joe Biden. Biden called the longtime Arizona sentor a dear friend and praised his courage and loyalty.

The two met when McCain served as the Navy’s liaison to the Senate Foreign Relations committee in the 1970s while Biden was on the committee, he said. “He jokes he carried my bags,” Biden said. “He never carried my bags.”

Over the years, Biden said, the two counseled each other. When McCain first ran for office, Biden was encouraging. In the 1990s, Biden said the two were chastised by their parties for sitting together during debates. In recent years, the two have been honored for their bipartisanship.

“We don’t understand why you should get an award for bipartisanship,” Biden said. The former vice president said he never expected to find himself on the ballot against McCain, as he did during the 2008 presidential race…

Republican Candidate For Georgia Governor Holds Bump Stock Giveaway – Washington Examiner

Suspect Arrested For Campus Graffiti Swastika Is Black Ex-Employee – PJ Media

A while back, someone spray-painted a swastika on a trash cart at the University of Maryland. As with so many other similar situations lately, students got extremely upset and the school did its best to respond.

Although officials didn’t indicate what the suspect’s motive was, it could be an anti-semitic hate crime or a faked hate crime.

From The College Fix:

You wouldn’t know it by reading news from the University of Maryland or its student newspaper, but the suspect charged in connection with a spray-painted swastika on campus is African-American.

FBI Confirms That Comey Drafted Statement On Clinton Probe Months Before Investigation Ended – Daily Caller

Satanic Looking Drag Queen With Horns Reads To Little Kids At Michelle Obama Public Library In Long Beach – Gateway Pundit

The Michelle Obama Public Library in Long Beach, California hosted a satanic looking drag queen on Saturday who read books to young children as part of the library’s celebration LGBTQ History Month.

Obamacare Tax To Raise Premiums In 2018, Cost $270 Billion Over Next Decade – Washington Free Beacon

An Obamacare tax that will be imposed in 2018 will raise premiums even further and is estimated to cost $270 billion over the next decade, according to a report commissioned by UnitedHealth Group.

The report was commissioned to examine how a tax imposed by Obamacare would impact premiums. Under Obamacare, health insurers that offer coverage are required to pay a fee on health insurance premiums they earn, which is also considered a tax by the IRS.

Congress imposed a moratorium on collecting these taxes in 2017, but that moratorium will end the beginning of 2018. According to the report, $13.9 billion in insurer taxes was not collected in 2017, which saved consumers about 3 percent on premiums.

“However, under current law the moratorium will lapse in 2018 and the tax on health insurance will be reinstated for 2018 at a higher annual level ($14.3 billion), resulting in higher fully-insured premiums for the 2018 plan year and all future years,” the report explained…

Unemployment Claims Fall To Lowest Level In 43 Years, Despite Hurricanes – Washington Examiner

The total number of laid-off workers receiving unemployment benefits fell to 1.89 million at the end of September, the Department of Labor reported Thursday, the lowest such mark in nearly 44 years.

And new claims for unemployment benefits dropped 15,000 to 243,000 in the first full week of October, according to the agency, as the job market bounces back from hurricane damage even faster than forecasters expected.

Low new jobless claims are a good sign. They indicate that layoffs are rare, and accordingly that job creation is strong.

Unemployment benefits are available for up to 26 weeks in most states. Fewer people are now receiving benefits of all duration than at any time since December of 1973, when the total workforce was much smaller. That is a reflection of the strength of the jobs market, and the availability of new positions for laid-off workers…

Iran Deal Supporters Are Willing To Sell Out The U.S. To Jihadists – Ben Weingarten

Among the talking points bouncing around the Iran Deal’s devoted echo chamber in the wake of President Trump’s decertification decision is one of proponents’ most honest and simultaneously sordid admissions: The JCPOA means big business for the West. As long as the money is good, let us all pretend we are not subsidizing the world’s leading state sponsor of jihad and protect the pact at all costs.

This position has been echoed implicitly by European officials, who have feverishly lobbied the U.S. against unwinding the Obama administration’s non-treaty in recent weeks.

Trump To Cease Using Taxpayer Dollars To Pay Illegal Obamacare Subsidies – Daily Caller

The Trump administration announced Thursday night that it will cease making payments to a subsidy that helps low to moderate income individuals purchase Obamacare health insurance plans.

U.S. Withdraws From UNESCO, Saying It’s Biased Against Israel – Bloomberg

“We are all gathered together to do something that is very powerful for our nation and very good for our people,” Trump said at the White House, surrounded by officials and small business owners.

The executive order directs the departments of Health and Human Services, Labor, and Treasury to take steps to make it easier for people to band together and buy coverage through what is known as “association health plans.”…

9 Republicans Co-Sponsoring More Gun Control For Law-Abiding Americans – Breitbart

Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-FL) introduced gun control aimed at law-abiding Americans on Tuesday. His bill has nine Republican co-sponsors, which means nine Republicans are willing to punish every law-abiding American for the behavior of one criminal in Las Vegas.

And they are doing all this to ban bump stocks, a product the ATF evaluated and approved in 2010.

The ATF approved the stocks because they are accessories for semiautomatics rather than conversion devices that turn semiautomatics into fully automatic weapons. Curbelo’s bill gets around the ATF’s approval by explicitly banning certain accessories for AR-15s, even if those accessories “[do] not convert the semiautomatic rifle into a machine gun.”

And like the Democrat bill – put forward by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) – Curbelo’s bill is already broader than bump stocks alone. In other words, it is a ban that will keep on giving for the Democrats and other gun control proponents.

Here are the nine Republicans who are co-sponsoring Curbelo’s bill…

Hillary’s Phony “Shock” At Weinstein Scandal – Joseph Klein

Perennial sore loser Hillary Clinton took five days to react to the New York Times story detailing a decades’ long pattern of alleged sexual harassment committed by her long time Hollywood pal and generous donor, Harvey Weinstein.

When Hillary did finally say something, her words were delivered via a written statement, not on camera where she has lectured us so frequently about how pervasive sexism and misogyny are in America.

The statement on Weinstein’s alleged sexual exploitation and abuse of women issued in Hillary’s name claimed that she was “shocked and appalled by the revelations about Harvey Weinstein.” The statement then added Clinton’s standard bromide: “The behavior described by women coming forward cannot be tolerated…

Pressure From Trump Leads To Pakistan Government Securing Release Of American Family Held Hostage By Terrorists – Washington Free Beacon

The government of Pakistan, under pressure from President Trump to do more against Islamic terrorism, secured the release of an American mother and her family after five years captivity at the hands of Islamic terrorists.

Caitlan Coleman, her Canadian husband, and three children, including a very young child, were freed from control of the al-Qaeda-linked Haqqani Network terrorist group Wednesday night and were in Pakistani government custody awaiting transfer to American officials.

The years’ long hostage case was resolved after the Islamabad government notified the U.S. government several days ago it had located the family and was close to securing their release.

“We’re tremendously grateful to the government of Pakistan for securing the release of Caitlan Coleman and her family,” said a senior official. “The relationship with Pakistan has had its challenges but this is exactly the kind of action that will put the relationship on the right track. This could be a new beginning.”..

DOJ Orders FBI To Investigate Weinstein Sex Allegations – News Max

Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ Department of Justice has ordered the FBI to investigate the sexual misconduct allegations surrounding Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.

According to The Daily Mail, the FBI will open a probe into what Weinstein may have done to several women over the years. Weinstein was fired from the production company he founded and that bears his name last weekend after news reports surfaced that he had sexually harassed several women.

Subsequent reports suggest he may have even committed rape.

TMZ reported Tuesday that Weinstein planned to fly to Europe to begin sex therapy treatment in an unknown country. If he were to stay in Europe and take refuge there, and criminal charges were eventually brought against him in the U.S., he might be able to avoid prosecution by staying put because some European countries do not conduct extraditions to the U.S.

Roman Polanski did just that after he was convicted of raping a 13-year-old girl in 1977…

For now, the court did not act on a separate challenge brought by the state of Hawaii, which the court had also agreed to hear. That case also features a challenge to a separate 120-day refugee ban, which has not yet expired.

That case could yet be dismissed once the refugee ban expires on Oct. 24, meaning the court remains unlikely to issue a final ruling on whether the ban was lawful. The justices were unanimous in deciding against ruling in the Maryland case…

California Sheriffs Call On Congress To Stop Their ‘Sanctuary’ State – Blunt Force Truth

California’s sheriffs are calling on the GOP-controlled Congress to intervene and pass a federal law to change the state’s sanctuary state status, warning the law that ties their hands too tightly will only increase the chances of another high-profile tragedy.

The sanctuary state law, which Gov. Jerry Brown (D.) signed Thursday but doesn’t go into effect until January, is the most far-reaching of its kind in the country and places sharp limits on how local law enforcement agencies can communicate with federal immigration authorities.

It would also make it a crime to enforce federal immigration laws on the premises of all schools, hospitals, libraries, and courthouses in state, which is home to an estimated two million immigrants.

Making the entire state a sanctuary for illegal immigrants is California’s latest salvo in its war with President Donald Trump over immigration policy, but law enforcement officials say it’s the state’s citizens who will pay the price with higher crime rates and avoidable tragedies…

ICE Will Target California Neighborhoods In Wake Of State’s New Sanctuary Law – Washington Times

The head of the federal deportation agency said Friday his agents will now have to go out into communities in California even more frequently to round up illegal immigrants, now that the state has embraced a full sanctuary policy.

Tom Homan, acting director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, made the comments a day after California Gov. Jerry Brown signed SB54 into law, canceling almost all cooperation state and local authorities can give to federal deportation officers.

He said the effect could be even more rank-and-file illegal immigrants snared because federal officers will now have to operate out in the community, rather than focus chiefly on prisons and jails.

“ICE will have no choice but to conduct at-large arrests in local neighborhoods and at worksites, which will inevitably result in additional collateral arrests, instead of focusing on arrests at jails and prisons where transfers are safer for ICE officers and the community,” Mr. Homan warned…

Obama’s Favorite Traitor Bowe Bergdahl Expected To Plead Guilty To Deserting His Post – Fox News
.

.
Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is expected to plead guilty later this month to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy rather than face trial for leaving his Afghanistan post in 2009, The Associated Press reported.

Two sources said the Idaho native would submit the plea later this month and sentencing would start Oct. 23. The AP did not name the sources.

Bergdahl’s lawyer declined to comment when contacted by Fox News. He faces up to five years in prison on the desertion charge and a life sentence for misbehavior.

Bergdahl, 31, who was serving with an Alaska-based infantry regiment, deserted his Afghanistan post in 2009, when he was 23 years old…

154,345,000: Record Number Of Americans Employed In September – Washington Free Beacon

The number of employed Americans hit a record high of 154,345,000 in September, according to the latest numbers released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. There were 906,000 more Americans who gained employment over the month, and more individuals joined the labor force as well.

There were 575,000 more Americans who joined the labor force in September, while 368,000 fewer left.

The number of Americans not participating in the labor force declined from 94,785,000 in August to 94,417,000 in September. The bureau counts those not in the labor force as people who do not have a job and did not actively seek one in the past four weeks.

The labor force participation rate, which is the percentage of the population that has a job or actively looked for one in the past month, increased from 62.9 percent in August to 63.1 percent in September. The participation rate hasn’t been this high since March of 2014.

The Harvey Weinstein Scandal And The Silent Left’s Stunning Hypocrisy – Stephen Miller

“Who is Harvey Weinstein?” is a perfectly acceptable question in light of a bombshell story The New York Times broke Thursday that reports decades of his alleged serial sexual harassment and settlements with women in Hollywood.

Putting it bluntly, Harvey Weinstein, for a time, was the most powerful producer and studio head in Hollywood. He is almost singlehandedly responsible for the indie-to-mainstream film explosion in the 90’s (backing “Pulp Fiction,” “Good Will Hunting” and “Shakespeare in Love” to name just a few examples). His influence in Hollywood is unparalleled.

But it’s his influence out of Hollywood that has parts of media and the political left flummoxed to the point of silence. Weinstein, fresh off producing a media-hailed documentary titled “The Hunting Ground,” about sexual assault on college campuses, has also taken a leave from his production company, The Weinstein Company. Who would have guessed the only real hunting ground, according to women interviews by the newspaper, was Harvey Weinstein’s casting couch?…

“In the aftermath of the evil and senseless attack in Las Vegas, the American people are looking for answers as to how future tragedies can be prevented,” Wayne LaPierre and Chris Cox said in a joint statement. “Unfortunately, the first response from some politicians has been to call for more gun control.

No, The U.S. Didn’t Just Take A Stand For Executing Gay People – Reason

Did the Trump administration just take a stand for executing gay people? No, but I understand if the internet’s been giving you that impression.

Countless journalists spread the story on Twitter, and several LGBTQ publications repeated it uncritically.

But the resolution wasn’t focused exclusively on executing gay people. It came out against executing anyone. Whether or not you favor the death penalty – for the record, I’m very much against it – this wasn’t something any country that allows the death penalty would have supported. The Obama administration voted against a similar resolution in December 2016.

A Constitutional Right To Win? The Democrats Want One – Matt Walter

Does the Democratic Party have a constitutional right to win a minimum number of elections? Of course not, but that’s what lawyers for a group of Wisconsin Democrats effectively argued at the Supreme Court in Gill v. Whitford.

Despite decades of experience and legal precedent to the contrary, Democrats are asking the Court to enter the political realm and find for the first time that a legislative map is unconstitutional on partisan-related grounds. The Supreme Court should take a pass.

In the Badger State, which voted for President Trump and where Republicans hold nearly all statewide elected offices, Democrats ask the Supreme Court to overturn Wisconsin’s legislative map because their party has failed to translate its statewide vote totals into a proportionate number of wins in the state legislature.

Never mind that America has a winner-take-all system, where winning individual elections, not running up votes, is what matters.,,

IT Aide’s Lawyer: Democrat Congressmen Ordered The Systematic Falsification Of Spending Records – Daily Caller

House Democrats ordered the systematic falsification of records showing how they spend their taxpayer-provided office budgets, according to lawyers for two former House information technology (IT) aides.

It’s a remarkable accusation that pits sitting lawmakers against the former aides, Imran Awan, his brothers Abid and Jamal, and his wife Hina Alvi. Imran was arrested in July while trying to board a flight to Pakistan, and then indicted on four counts of bank fraud involving moving money to that country. Imran and Hina, who was also indicted, face a court date Friday.

One of Imran’s lawyers, Aaron Page, acknowledged the invoicing discrepancy Aug. 21, telling The Daily Caller News Foundation, “This is just how things have been done for forever. This is what experienced members of Congress expect: to expedite things, they adjust the pricing.”

The legislation would also authorize the federal government to reimburse states up to $35 million for use of National Guard assets to reinforce border security.

Victim Of ‘Draw Muhammad’ ISIS-Inspired Terror Attack Sues FBI, Accuses James Comey Of Cover-Up – Washington Examiner

The security guard wounded in a 2015 ISIS-inspired terrorist attack at the “Draw Muhammad” event in Garland, Texas, is suing the FBI, and argues the bureau is liable for his damages because an agent “solicited, encouraged, directed and aided members of ISIS in planning and carrying out the May 3 attack,” according to court documents filed Monday.

If the plaintiff, Bruce Joiner, doesn’t settle with the bureau, the case could shake loose hundreds of documents from both local and federal officials about what happened that day, and could answer the question of why an FBI agent was in a car directly behind the attackers and did nothing as the events unfolded.

In May of 2015, Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi drove from their home in Phoenix to the Curtis Culwell center in Garland where the “Draw Muhammad” contest was being held, in a car loaded with three rifles, three handguns, and about 1,500 rounds of ammunition.

U.S. House Of Representatives Passes 20-Week Abortion Ban – Washington Free Beacon

The House of Representatives voted 237 to 189 to pass a ban on abortion after 20 weeks on Tuesday.

H.R. 36, officially the “Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act,” was reintroduced by Rep. Trent Franks (R., Ariz.) in January; House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R., Calif.) announced last week that the bill would be brought to the floor.

The act would make it a crime to perform an abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy. Violators would be subject to a fine, up to five years in prison, or both. It would make exceptions for the life of the mother, and for pregnancies that are the result of rape or incest. The act also specifically targets abortion providers; women who undergo an abortion after 20 weeks will not be prosecuted for violating the act’s terms.

Similar bills failed in 2013 and 2015, but this time the bill has support from the White House.

“ESPN MNF will not carry the anthem live,” spokesman Mac Nwulu told Sporting News, referencing the latest “Monday Night Football” contest.

The Kansas City Chiefs are scheduled to host the Washington Redskins in Kansas City, Missouri late Monday amid raging national debate over the NFL’s handling of national anthem protests.

ESPN previously passed on showing live NFL player protests during the league’s Week 4 games last weekend, and its treatment of Monday’s competition continues that trend.

Some Twitter users on Monday criticized ESPN’s move after the sports network televised the anthem playing live during the NFL’s Week 3.

ESPN has returned to its normal NFL coverage strategy after showing the anthem as it was played live during the “Monday Night Football” till one week ago…

CNN is having their infamous “audio issues” again.

The fake news network cut off Puerto Rico’s Attorney General when he began to criticize San Juan’s Mayor, Carmen Yulín Cruz.

Cruz has been extremely critical of President Trump’s amazing job handling the devastation of Puerto Rico by Hurricane Maria, and has received some criticism of her own, from her fellow Puerto Ricans.

Multiple sources within Puerto Rico’s political circles have described Cruz as being a “political opportunist” and “overly dramatic,” and portray her attacks on President Trump as politically motivated.

Georgetown Bank Teller Steals $185,000 From Homeless Customer With Garbage Bag Full Of Cash – Zero Hedge

Where did all this money come from?

That’s probably the first question that Phelon Davis of District Heights, Maryland, asked himself when a homeless man shuffled into the Wells Fargo branch in Georgetown where Davis worked as a teller three years ago and tried to deposit a garbage bag full of cash.

His next question was probably “do you think he’d notice if some of it went missing?”

Instead of helping the customer deposit the money into his account, Davis instead decided to take advantage of the situation, setting up a fraudulent second account under the customers’ name and eventually stealing more than $185,000 from the man, according to the Washington Post.

The 29-year-old bank teller stole more than $185,000 from a homeless customer who tried to deposit a garbage bag full of cash at a Wells Fargo branch in Georgetown.

In a deal with prosecutors, Davis pleaded guilty this week to one federal felony count of interstate transportation of stolen property, which is punishable by up to 10 years in prison…

High School Football Players Kicked Off Team For Protesting During Anthem – Daily Caller

A coach kicked a two Texan high school football players off of the team after the players protested during the national anthem Friday.

Senior Larry McCullough knelt and sophomore Cedric Ingram-Lewis put his fist up in the air during the national anthem before Victory & Praise Christian Academy’s football game, reported the Houston Chronicle. Ronnie Mitchem, the team’s coach and pastor, kicked them off the team directly afterwards.

“I don’t have any problem with those young men,” Mitchem told the Chronicle. “We’ve had a good relationship. They chose to do that and they had to pay for the consequences.”

Mitchem, a former Marine, had previously told the school’s players that he did not want them to kneel during the anthem, believing that the action offends veterans and distracts rather than calls attention to issues. The coach said he wanted the players to express their discontent by authoring and distributing a paper about political issues that troubled them, or by kneeling in the end zone after a touchdown…

More Than 92% Of Voters In Iraqi Kurdistan Back Independence – The Guardian

More than 92% of voters in Iraqi Kurdistan have opted for independence, according to election monitors, in an overwhelming endorsement of a proposed split from Baghdad that has sparked increasing threats of air and land blockades that could be imposed as early as Friday.

The result came after Iraq’s parliament authorised the prime minister, Haider al-Abadi, to send troops into areas disputed between Arabs and Kurds that were contentiously included in the ballot.

Euphoria on the streets of Erbil in recent days has been met with sharply increasing tension in the region, which is likely to escalate in the wake of the result.

Baghdad has threatened to close Kurdish airspace at 6pm (1500 GMT) on Friday and Turkey says it is considering whether to shut its frontier with Kurdistan and impose a trade ban.

But in an attempt to calm ever more heated rhetoric, Abadi appeared to rule out the use of military force, saying on Wednesday: “We don’t want a fight between Iraqi citizens.”…

Networks Told NFL Cameramen To Avoid Shots Of Booing Crowds – Zero Hedge

President Donald Trump’s feud with the NFL erupted nearly a week ago when he demanded that NFL franchise owners should “get that son of a b***h off the field” when they see players kneeling during the national anthem.

Since then, league owners have discovered, to their surprise, that millions of Americans – and more importantly, millions of NFL fans – agree with the president, who encouraged them to boycott the league until it agrees to ban kneeling during the anthem.

So far, evidence suggests that fans have heeded the president’s call to boycott the league. NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” last weekend recorded its worst weekly ratings in years. Overall, ratings are down 11% from last year, according to the Associated Press.

Leftist Teachers Desecrate American Flag In School Library – Fox News

Is it permissible to desecrate the American flag for educational purposes? That question is at the center of a raging firestorm in suburban Chicago after a public high school allowed teachers to desecrate an American flag – in the school’s library.

It was a one-day exhibit at York High School on Sept. 26. Staff members from the English and social sciences departments placed an American flag on the floor in the school’s library as part of a project on First Amendment rights. Students were not permitted to walk-on or deface the flag.

The school gave the defiled flag to the American Legion so it could be properly retired. A spokesperson for the Elmhurst Community Unit School District 205 told the Chicago Tribune neither the school board nor district administrators were notified prior to the display.

Trump Preparing Executive Order To Let Americans Purchase Health Insurance Across State Lines – Washington Examiner

President Trump is preparing an executive order to allow people to purchase health insurance across state lines, a reform conservatives have long championed as a way to bring costs down and stir greater competition in the national marketplace.

The change is likely to make California among the first handful of states to weigh in on the 2020 presidential race.

“The intent of the bill was to put our voters at the front seat in choosing the next president and helping us drive a different agenda at the national level,” said Sen. Ricardo Lara, D-Bell Gardens, who carried the early-primary legislation.

In years past, presidential candidates have largely ignored deep-blue California, where it’s incredibly expensive to campaign because of the sheer size of the state and its huge population…

Muslim IT Spy Funneling ‘Massive’ Data Off Congressional Server; Democrats Claim It’s Child’s Homework – Washington Standard

Democratic congressional aides made unauthorized access to a House server 5,400 times and funneled “massive” amounts of data off of it.

But there’s nothing to see here, Democrats told the Washington Post: They were just storing and then re-downloading homework assignments for Imran Awan’s elementary-school aged kids and family pictures.

A congressional source with direct knowledge of the incident contradicted the Post’s account, saying that now-indicted IT aide Imran Awan and his associates “were moving terabytes off-site so they could quote ‘work on the files’” and that they desperately tried to hide what was on the server when caught, providing police with what law enforcement immediately recognized as falsified evidence and an indication of criminal intent.

The Post described the amount of data improperly flowing out of the congressional network as “massive.”

One congressional source told Circa it was “terabits.”…

Russian Troops Build Up On North Korean Border After Shock Missile Launch – Daily Star

Dramatic pictures show a huge number of troops arriving on Kim Jong-un’s borders in a clear show of strength from the Kremlin. Soldiers can be seen patrolling the top of the infamous Zaozyonara Hill – historically used as a meeting point between Russia, China and the rogue nation.

And chillingly, Putin’s men can see directly into the tubby tyrant’s territory from the vantage point. The move comes amid fears Russia could wade into the ongoing nuclear crisis in the region – further heightened after an unexpected missile test yesterday.

Maine Governor Tells Sheriffs They’ll Be Fired For Defying U.S. Immigration Officials – CNS

On Tuesday, Republican Maine Gov. Paul LePage warned his state’s sheriffs that he’ll fire anyone who defies his order to cooperate with federal immigration enforcement officials.

In a letter to Maine’s sheriffs, LePage explicitly threatened to remove any sheriff who refuses to comply with Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE) requests to extend the detention of arrested individuals suspected of violating federal immigration law.

The governor’s letter was prompted by rouge sheriffs who have said they won’t comply with ICE requests, The Daily Caller reports:

The letter, which references LePage’s authority to dismiss Sheriffs who defy his orders, appears to be directed at Cumberland County Sheriff Kevin Joyce. Joyce informed ICE in a Sept. 14 letter that he would not comply with requests to detain arrested individuals beyond their scheduled release date, absent a warrant.

“We have a couple sheriffs who say they’re not going to be working with ICE,” LePage told [Radio Host Laura] Ingraham…

One Million Christians To Pray Rosary On Poland’s Border Commemorating Historical Defeat Of Islam – Breitbart

Poland’s bishops have urged the nation’s Catholics to join a massive rosary prayer crusade along the country’s 2,000-mile border to pray for the salvation of their country.

Organizers say they expect up to a million people to participate in the “Rosary on the Borders” event on October 7, the anniversary of the Battle of Lepanto, where “the Christian fleet overcame the Muslim armada, saving Europe from Islamization.”

The Catholic Feast of the Holy Rosary was established by Pope Pius V in 1571 as “Our Lady of Victory” after the so-called Holy League won a landmark victory over the Ottoman Turks at the Battle of Lepanto.

On October 7th, 1571, a fleet of ships assembled by a coalition of Christian nations fought an intense battle against the forces of the invading Ottoman Empire. The unexpected victory of the so-called “Holy League” radically curbed efforts by the Ottoman Turks to control the Mediterranean, “causing a seismic shift in international relations from East to West.”…

While DirecTV’s regular Sunday Ticket policy doesn’t allow refunds once the season is under way, the representatives said they are making exceptions this season, which began in September, in response to the player’s growing protests, either kneeling or linking arms during the national anthem.

Texas Police Can Now Be Imprisoned For Not Honoring ICE Detainer Requests – Law Newz

A federal appeals court has allowed some aspects of Texas’s anti-Sanctuary City bill SB4 to go forward.

One of the more controversial provisions of SB4 is language which directs all law enforcement agents and officials in the state to “comply with, honor, and fulfill,” Immigration and Customs Enforcement (“ICE”) detainer requests. It reads, in relevant part:

Art. 2.251. DUTIES RELATED TO IMMIGRATION DETAINER REQUESTS. (a) A law enforcement agency that has custody of a person subject to an immigration detainer request issued by United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement shall: (1) comply with, honor, and fulfill any request made in the detainer request provided by the federal government; and (2) inform the person that the person is being held pursuant to an immigration detainer request issued by United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

The above-quoted provision is now being allowed to take effect pending further litigation. Thus, any police officers, chiefs or sheriffs who violate that provision – and refuse ICE detainer requests – will now be subject to criminal penalties…

Uber Banned In London After Sexual Assaults By Migrants Skyrocket – InfoWars

Uber has been banned in London partly in response to skyrocketing rapes by predominantly migrant drivers which the company did not report to police.

According to Transport for London, Uber’s license will not be renewed beyond September 30, with the first reason listed being the company’s “approach to reporting serious criminal offenses.”

This includes Uber’s failure to report rising numbers of rapes and sexual assaults by its own drivers.

Latest figures show that Uber drivers are now responsible for one sex attack in London every week, with sexual assaults by Uber drivers skyrocketing by 50 per cent in just a single year.

This is undoubtedly connected to the fact that many of the drivers are from Muslim backgrounds, where “immodest” women are seen as easy prey. Many of the young women who hire Uber taxis late at night are drunk and in some cases scantily dressed.

Many Uber drivers are newly arrived migrants or “refugees” who don’t have to undergo the intensive training that traditional cabbies go through…

Tensions between the United States and North Korea have ratcheted up after the sixth and most powerful nuclear test conducted by Pyongyang on Sept. 3 prompted the United Nations Security Council to impose further sanctions last week.

Chinese banks have come under scrutiny for their role as a conduit for funds flowing to and from China’s increasingly isolated neighbor.

She dismissed a consolidated case that wrapped up numerous individual lawsuits charging the loss of personal information, as well as a separate claim from the National Treasury Employees Union “for lack of subject matter jurisdiction based on both standing and sovereign immunity grounds.”…

Indicted Democrat State Rep Showed Up To Work High On Morphine, Paid $51,000 For Online Psychic – Gateway Pundit

Texas Democrat State Rep. Dawnna Dukes is facing corruption charges; her trial is set for October 16th. Travis County prosecutors claim Dukes showed up to the Capitol impaired, hid a cell phone from investigators and spent over $51,000 on an online psychic.

Dukes apparently used her own money for the psychic; the court documents do not indicate that she used taxpayer money.

Austin-American Statesman reported:

According to the filing, Dukes paid an online psychic $51,348 from December 2014 to January 2016, totaling nearly $1,000 per week.

In other “extraneous acts” listed in the filing, prosecutors say Dukes:

• Was absent for roll call 65 percent of the time during the 2017 legislative regular session, and 36 percent of the time in the special session.

• Responded to a search warrant for her cellphone by providing investigators a phone that did not match the identification number on the phone they had requested…

After 2.5 Years, A Lawsuit To Unseal Draft Whitewater Indictments Against Hillary Gets Its Day In Court – Zero Hedge

Trump Tightens The Noose On North Korea With New Executive Order – Daily Caller

President Donald Trump signed an executive order Thursday significantly expanding sanctions on the rogue North Korean regime.

“The new executive order will cut off sources of revenue that fund North Korea’s efforts to develop the deadliest weapons known to humankind,” the president introduced at a press conference.

Trump explained that the order dramatically enhances the Department of the Treasury’s authority to “target any individual or entity that conducts significant trade in goods, services, or technology with North Korea.”

The order targets key industries, as well as essential shipping networks.

“For much too long, North Korea has been allowed to abuse the international financial system to facilitate funding for its nuclear weapons and missile programs,” the president told reporters. “The United States has had representatives working on this problem for over 25 years, and they have done nothing.”…

Mississippi Inmates Break Out Of Jail, Burglarize Nearby Store, Then Sneak Back Into Jail – KTIV

Four Mississippi inmates are facing more charges after allegedly breaking out of jail, burglarizing a nearby Dollar General store, and then sneaking back into jail without being noticed by guards.

According to police the inmates jumped the fence at the Holmes-Humphreys County Correction Facility

“They stole cigarettes, cigarette lighters, phones and just items they felt they could sell in jail,” said Lexington Police Chief Robert Kirklin.

After grabbing the items in the store, the chief says instead of making a run for it, the men sneaked back into jail unnoticed. Williams even bonded out for another charge before authorities figured out what happened…

Leftist Corruption Update: Obama’s UN Ambassador Sought To Unmask Americans On An Almost Daily Basis – Fox News

Two sources, who were not authorized to speak on the record, said the requests to identify Americans whose names surfaced in foreign intelligence reporting, known as unmasking, exceeded 260 last year. One source indicated this occurred in the final days of the Obama White House.

Climate Alarmists Finally Admit ‘We Were Wrong About Global Warming’ – Breitbart

Climate alarmists have finally admitted that they’ve got it wrong on global warming.

This is the inescapable conclusion of a landmark paper, published in Nature Geoscience, which finally admits that the computer models have overstated the impact of carbon dioxide on climate and that the planet is warming more slowly than predicted.

The paper – titled Emission budgets and pathways consistent with limiting warming to 1.5 °C – concedes that it is now almost impossible that the doomsday predictions made in the last IPCC Assessment Report of 1.5 degrees C warming above pre-industrial levels by 2022 will come true.

In order for that to happen, temperatures would have to rise by a massive 0.5 degrees C in five years.

Since global mean temperatures rarely rise by even as much as 0.25 degrees C in a decade, that would mean the planet would have to do 20 years’ worth of extreme warming in the space of the next five years…

Rocklin Academy Doubles Down On Transgender Lessons For Kindergartners – Washington Times

Record Bust: Enough Fentanyl To Kill 32 Million People Seized In Queens – WPIX

Agents made a record fentanyl bust in Queens and seized an amount large enough to kill 32 million people. Officers seized nearly 270 pounds of fentanyl, heroin and cocaine worth $30 million during separate busts, law enforcement officials said Monday. They also arrested four people.

“The sheer volume of fentanyl pouring into the city is shocking,” said Special Narcotics Prosecutor Bridget G. Brennan. Investigators first recovered more than 140 pounds of fentanyl during a raid on a Kew Gardens apartment along with nearly 59 pounds of fentanyl mixed with other narcotics.

A fentanyl dose weighing just two to three milligrams can be deadly. The amount of pure fentanyl seized could have yielded approximately 32 million lethal doses. They arrested Rogelio Alvarado-Robles and Blanca Flores-Solis in that bust.

Investigators also recovered 55 pounds of fentanyl and heroin in a September seizure in the Bronx. They took two people – Edwin Guzman, 35, and Manuel Rivera-Santana, 32 – into custody…

Graham-Cassidy Block-Grant Bill Sets Off Clashes In Senate As Obamacare Repeal Clock Ticks – Washington Times

Senators in both parties reignited the Obamacare repeal wars Monday, as Republicans claimed momentum for a last-chance repeal bill and Democrats told budget analysts to vet the legislation carefully, hoping to prolong a thorny debate before an end-of-month deadline.

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, a Republican, said the block grant proposal by Sen. Lindsey Graham, South Carolina Republican, and Bill Cassidy, Louisiana Republican, was the “best path forward to repeal and replace Obamacare.”

“Congress has 12 days to say ‘yes’ to Graham-Cassidy. It’s time for them to get the job done,” he said in a prepared statement.

It was a critical endorsement for Senate sponsors trying to win over Sen. John McCain, an Arizona Republican whose rejection of a limited repeal bill in July stalled the party’s effort on health care.

And the same media that still treats Watergate as the Great American Scandal had claimed that there was nothing “improper” in an Obama loyalist eavesdropping on members of the opposition party.

Every time Obama Inc. was caught eavesdropping on opposition politicians, it presented its spin in a carefully packaged “scoop” to a major media outlet. This time was no different.

When Obama Inc. spied on members of Congress to protect its Iran nuke sellout, it packaged the story to the Wall Street Journal under the headline, “U.S. Spy Net on Israel Snares Congress”. The idea was that Obama Inc. was “legitimately” spying on Israel, that it just happened to intercept the conversations of some members of Congress and American Jews…

“I’m Done”: CNN Anchor ‘Triggered’ After Panelist Proclaims Love Of “First Amendment And Boobs” – Zero Hedge

Anxious to discuss President Trump’s tweet against ESPN (and host Jamele Hill’s comments), CNN set female anchor Brooke Baldwin on the task to get to the bottom of whether Hill did anything worth being fired for or if evil President Trump was trying to crush her First Amendment rights.

The interview started to go pear-shaped very quickly.

Addressing the question of the first amendment, Fox Sports Radio’s Clay Travis said:

North Korea Launches Another Missile Over Japan – Western Journalism

North Korea launched another ballistic missile Friday over Japan capable of reaching the U.S. territory of Guam.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un called the most recent missile test over the northern Japanese island of Hokkaidoa a “shining victory in the standoff with the United States,” declaring that the U.S. is in “mortal fear” of North Korea, according to the Daily Mail.

North Korea has launched two missiles that flew over Japan in less than a month, and the first since the United Nations voted unanimously less than a week ago to place aggressive sanctions on the regime.

South Korea president Moon Jae-in warned that further acts of aggression could result in the “complete destruction,” of North Korea.

“In case North Korea undertakes provocations against us or our ally, we have the power to destroy (the North) beyond recovery,” Moon Jae-in said.

House Votes To Deport Illegal Alien Gangbangers Over Democrat Objections – Washington Examiner

The House of Representatives passed a bill Thursday aimed at keeping illegal immigrants out of the U.S. if they are members of criminal gangs. The Criminal Alien Gang Member Removal Act passed in a 233-175 vote, and was backed largely by GOP lawmakers, and opposed by most Democrats. The legislation was introduced by Rep. Barbara Comstock.

The bill would require illegal immigrants in gangs to be detained and deported, and ensures that gang members are not able to receive immigration benefits, including asylum, special immigrant juvenile status or temporary protected status.

“It will provide additional tools to law enforcement that will ensure that when [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] positively identifies a known alien gang member, they may act immediately,” Comstock said on the House floor…

School Warns Students Not To Chant ‘USA’ At Events Because It Might Send ‘Unintended Message’ – Gateway Pundit

Students at Vista Del Lago High School in Folsom, CA were warned not to chant “USA!” at events because it could send an ‘unintended message’. Whatever that means.

CBS Sacramento reports:

Controversy erupts at Vista Del Lago High School in Folsom over students chanting “USA.”

It’s a popular way to for students to show pride during sporting events and rallies, but school and district officials are now warning students that the chants could appear inappropriate and intolerant.

School officials worry the chants could come across as intolerant and offensive to some, but parents see it differently, as an expression of pride and acceptance.

The school’s principal sent out an email to families Wednesday and relayed the same message to students over the school’s P.A. system, clarifying any confusion. She told students and parents that sometimes “We can communicate an unintended message.” She also said USA chanting is welcome, but it may be best to do it at what she says are appropriate times…

FBI Reversal: Bureau Will Release More Clinton Investigation Docs – Washington Times

Weeks after saying there wasn’t enough public interest in Hillary Clinton’s email case, the FBI’s decision has been modified, and the bureau will publicly release more details of its obstruction of justice probe into the former secretary of state.

The Justice Department confirmed the new position in a letter Thursday to Ty Clevenger, a lawyer who’d filed an open-records request for the information.

The FBI had initially told him there wasn’t enough public interest to outweigh Mrs. Clinton’s privacy concerns, but he appealed to the Justice Department, which said it was “modifying the FBI’s response.”

Justice Department official Sean R. O’Neill said after speaking with Mr. Clevenger, they have concluded that the records in question are part of Clinton email investigation file, which he said they’re already making public in installments.

Amazon Deleting Hundreds Of One-Star Reviews Of Hillary’s Book – Zero Hedge

Reviews of What Happened have been mixed, with some accusing Clinton of using it as an opportunity to blame others – such as former FBI head James Comey, Bernie Sanders, Vladimir Putin, social media and pretty much everything else – for her failure, rather than herself. Even The New York Times, which supported Clinton’s campaign, wrote that the book is “a score-settling jubilee”.

At Least 11 Mayors Accused Of Child Sex-Related Crimes Since 2016 – Daily Caller

Ontario School Allowing Students To “Negotiate” Their Final Grades – The Rebel

In Ontario, we don’t fail kids at school because it might be bad for their self-esteem. Instead, progressives running the education system will be experimenting with an alternative meant to challenge our “preoccupation” with marks.

Beginning this year, a group of Grade 9 students at Mayfield school in Caledon, Ontario will be invited to negotiate their final grades with their teachers. This strikes me as similar to what the left has done to sports, where we hand out “participation” trophies as opposed to “championship” trophies, regardless of merit.

Fun and games is one thing, but shouldn’t education be something else? After all, education lays the foundation for one’s eventual life skills, but I guess progressives think you can negotiate competency.

The Death Of Liberalism – Daniel Greenfield

Liberalism is a dirty word in today’s left. You hear it most often as an insult, neoliberalism, hurled by the hard left against anyone accused of insufficient hostility to free enterprise and other open systems. If you trust the free market and individual judgement over state regulation, you might just be a neoliberal.

And neoliberals are the biggest enemies of the left.

Liberal has become a slur on the illiberal left which is intolerant of open and tolerant systems. The defining symbol of the illiberal left is the campus safe space where no free speech is allowed. Safe spaces take the college, once the symbol of a liberal commitment to the free exchange of ideas, and invert it into a space that is safe from the free exchange of ideas under a warm and fuzzy name.

The safe space isn’t a campus eccentricity. As the riots from Berkeley to Boston show, using violence to silence free speech isn’t just something overzealous college kids do. It’s what the left does now…

Chinese Government Bans Christian Children From Attending Church – Breitbart

In one of its more drastic moves to date, China’s ruling Communist Party has issued notices warning Christian parents not to take their children to church or they “will be dealt with severely.”

In their latest attack on Christianity, authorities have told more than a hundred Christian churches that children are now forbidden from attending church services and joining Christian groups. The latest move may respond in part to a new study from the University of Shanghai, which found that more than 60 percent of students are interested in learning more about Christianity and that young catechumens in official and underground Christian communities have been steadily increasing in number.

In August, communist officials issued “notices” to over a hundred churches in Wenzhou, within the largely Christian Zhejiang province, informing Christians that children are no longer permitted to enter any church.

More than 650,000 residents are reportedly subject to the mandatory evacuation order – that’s up from the 200,000 who were asked to leave to areas outside of evacuation Zones A and B, Wednesday…

Jose Upgraded To Category 4 Hurricane, Follows Irma’s Destructive Wake – Daily Caller
.

.
Hurricane Jose has intensified into a massive Category 4 hurricane, according to a Friday report from the National Hurricane Center.

Jose, which graduated from a tropical storm to a hurricane Thursday, is about 435 miles east-southeast of the Northern Leeward Islands and is toting 150 mph winds, the center said.

Jose was originally considered much weaker than Hurricane Irma, which wound a path of destruction through the Caribbean islands, but it has slowly gained mass while plotting a course for the U.S.

Irma, Jose’s larger and more powerful sister, managed to maintain 185 mph winds for 42 hours, making it the longest-lasting storm of this magnitude in the satellite era in more than 50 years…

Twitter Moves To Silence All Criticism Of Islam – Frontpage

Remember Google’s old motto, “Don’t be evil”? It sounds so ironic now, with the social media giants all rushing to implement Sharia blasphemy restrictions and choke off all criticism of Islam. Twitter is working so hard to do this that it should adopt a new motto: “Be evil.”

Twitter certainly lives by that motto. It lets stand open death threats against me. It censors content to suit Iran’s Islamic authorities. It has flagged as “hateful” tweets stating the fact that Islam is not a religion of peace and reporting accurately about anti-Semitic statements by an imam. It has let Islamic State accounts stand while banning those of people who report terrorists. It has shadowbanned my account, preventing thousands of readers from seeing Jihad Watch posts.

And it isn’t just me, of course. Breitbart reported Monday that “a Muslim apostate and high profile campaigner against both female genital mutilation (FGM) and forced marriage has been suspended from micro-blogging platform Twitter, amidst a wider crackdown on right wing voices on the website, and other online platforms like Facebook.”…

College Pays Students $10 An Hour To ‘Celebrate Diversity’ – Campus Reform

Bryn Mawr College has hired student “Community Diversity Assistants” for at least $10 per hour to “help the Bryn Mawr College community understand and celebrate its diversity.”

The newly launched “Community Diversity Assistants” program has hired 13 students who will be dispatched to dorms to serve as “mediators for conflicts and disputes around issues of diversity” and will hold “office hours” to answer students’ questions about diversity.

While the administration itself normally plans events related to diversity on campus, the Diversity Assistants will do so as well, with “race, socioeconomic class, gender identity, [and] sexuality” programming themes.

Namrata Basu, the co-leader of the program and a junior Math major at Bryn Mawr, told Campus Reform in an interview that students came up with the idea for the program, and that it’s especially needed in “this political climate.”

More Than 5,000 Out-Of-State Voters May Have Tipped New Hampshire Against Trump – Washington Times

More than 6,500 people registered to vote in New Hampshire on Nov. 8 using out-of-state driver’s licenses, and since then the vast majority have neither obtained an in-state license nor registered a motor vehicle.

Conservatives say the state’s same-day registration is an invitation for fraud because of loose proof-of-residence rules. New Hampshire House Speaker Shawn Jasper, a Republican, issued the numbers Thursday based on inquiries he made to the Department of State, which oversees elections, and the Department of Safety.

Since Election Day, Republicans have charged that a significant number of nonresident Democrats, principally from Massachusetts, flowed into New Hampshire to vote illegally, tilting a close race to their party.

Trump Continues To Remake The Federal Judiciary – Daily Caller

President Donald Trump submitted another slate of judicial nominees to Senate Thursday, naming candidates to the powerful federal appeals courts based in Washington, D.C., and San Francisco, Calif.

Circuit, the nation’s second most powerful judicial panel, and Ryan Bounds to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, the West Coast appeals court and primary antagonist of the early days of the Trump presidency.

Katsas’ nomination was widely expected. He currently serves as deputy White House Counsel and has played a major role in the administration’s early judicial nominations. Before entering government service he practiced in the Washington offices of Jones Day, a white-shoe practice intimately connected to Trump from the earliest days of the campaign.

Now That Obamacare Is No Longer On The GOP’s Radar, McCain Suddenly Supports Repeal Effort – Talking Points Memo

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said Wednesday that he would support a plan to repeal Obamacare led by Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Bill Cassidy (R-LA).

”Yes. You think I wouldn’t be?” McCain told reporters Wednesday, asked if he would support the legislation, the Hill reported.

Arizona’s senior senator, whose close friendship with Graham is well known, affirmed that he thought the bill, in The Hill’s words, “has legs before Sept. 30.”

The Graham-Cassidy legislation would essentially dismantle much of Obamacare’s federal infrastructure, turning over federal dollars to the states to do with what they wish, though that flexibility at the state level would come at a sharp cost.

Judith Solomon, vice president for health policy at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, told Politico on August 1 that she estimated it would result in 16 percent less federal spending in 2020 versus the Obamacare status quo’s spending on Medicaid expansion and market subsidies…

Appeals Court Rules Texas Can Use New Voter ID Law – The Hill

S.B. 5 was passed by the Texas legislature earlier this year in response to a court ruling that the state’s original measure, Senate Bill 14, was too restrictive and racially motivated.

One group is Refuse Fascism, a well-funded “resistance” group created for the express purpose of opposing President Trump’s administration. Internal presentations from a Refuse Fascism conference last month said the group intends to make America’s leaders lose “international legitimacy” as a way of ultimately bringing down the Trump presidency, as TheDC first reported.

The other group is Workers World Party, a Marxist organization that has played a leading role in anti-Trump demonstrations across the country.

Both groups have consistently echoed North Korean talking points that demonize America while excusing Un’s genocidal regime…

Trump Has Decided To End DACA, “Igniting A Political Firestorm” – Zero Hedge

On Friday, the White House announced that Trump would make his decision whether to end the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), or “Dreamer, program on Tuesday. Well, we won’t have to wait to long, because according to Politico, Trump has made the decision to end the DACA program with a six-month delay.

Trump, who has faced strong warnings from both Democrats and Republicans not to scrap the program and struggled with his own misgivings about targeting minors for deportation, is said to have made up his mind and according to Politico, “senior White House aides huddled Sunday afternoon to discuss the rollout of a decision likely to ignite a political firestorm – and fulfill one of the president’s core campaign promises.”…

Fake Republican And Faithless Elector Chris Suprun Now Running For Congress As A Democrat – Gateway Pundit

Eyebrows were raised and suspicions grew over what Mr. Suprun’s intentions really were after he penned an op-ed in the New York Times over his decision to be a ‘faithless elector’. Shockingly, his Twitter bio also directed media inquiries to P.R. firm, Megaphone Strategies. This P.R. firm represents radical left wing organizations like Black Lives Matter and even reps CNN’s ultra left wing radical, Van Jones.

As TGP previously reported, Got News revealed that Chris Suprun filed Bankruptcy and 6 months later joined Ashley Madison, which is a ‘dating site’ for married people looking to have an affair. Mr. Suprun had 3 children under the age of 10 at the time! It is also alleged that he was unemployed during this time while his wife worked full time!

For years Chris Suprun has passed himself off as a 9-11 hero first responder. He has even thrown the first pitch out at local ballparks.

Now it looks like that was all a lie. He didn’t become a firefighter until OCTOBER 2001…

President Trump said the recovery from Hurricane Harvey would be “hopefully a quick process” after arriving in Texas on Saturday to tour massive damage caused by the Gulf Coast storm in Houston.

Trump and his wife, Melania, visited a relief center and mingled with victims. The Trumps are also scheduled to join members of the Texas delegation before heading to Louisiana.

“There’s a lot of water, but it’s moving out. Most importantly, the governor, the relationship with the governor, the mayor and everybody, it’s been fantastic,” Trump told reporters while touring the relief center. “We’re signing a lot of documents now to get money” and it’s “going through a hopefully quick process.”…

North Korea Conducts Nuclear Test, Riling International Community – Zero Hedge

Shortly after the news that North Korea announced it was in possession of an “advanced Hydrogen bomb”, to which we said that if “the bomb appears to be authentic, it would confirm that the North is preparing for its most provocative action yet: its sixth nuclear test, which would force Trump to respond, having vowed never to allow North Korea to become a nuclear power with offensive capabilities”.

This is precisely what happened, when on Sunday morning, North Korea conducted what appears its sixth nuclear test, triggering a tremor 10 times as powerful as that from its test a year ago and just hours after it showed off what it called a hydrogen bomb capable of being mounted on a long-range missile.

The U.S. Geological Survey said it had recorded a M6.3 earthquake that it described as a “possible explosion” in northeastern North Korea – near the site of Pyongyang’s past nuclear tests – at a depth of zero kilometers at noon Pyongyang time.

Federal Judge Blocks Texas’ Ban On Dismemberment Abortion – Breitbart

Following a challenge by Planned Parenthood, U.S. District Judge Lee Yeakel issued a two-week injunction Thursday against the law – signed in June by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) – that would have taken effect Friday.

The judge wrote that Planned Parenthood and the other plaintiffs satisfied a requirement for the temporary injunction showing that “threatened injury to the Plaintiffs outweighs any damage that the temporary restraining order might cause the State.”

“The court concludes that plaintiffs have established that absent a temporary restraining order they will suffer irreparable harm by being unable to access the most commonly used and safest previability-second-trimester-abortion procedure ahead of any substantial constitutional review of the act,” Yeakel wrote…

After first assuming all the plaintiff’s allegations were true, for the purposes of weighing their claims, Judge William Zloch dismissed the lawsuit on several grounds. The plaintiffs alleged fraud on the part of the DNC in three different ways:

1. The DNC did not remain unbiased as evidenced through the DNC emails Wikileaks published.

2. Donors to the DNC were defrauded because they donated to Bernie Sanders as a Democrat candidate and the fix was in for Hillary Clinton.

Only In California: Sacramento To Pay Gang Bangers If They Stop Killing People – Zero Hedge

You’re probably thinking this is a satirical report from The Onion. We thought so, too. But be assured it’s very real, as reported by Fox 40 Sacramento:

After a violent weekend of suspected gang-related shootings, Tuesday the Sacramento City Council took action to reduce the bloodshed. It approved a controversial program called Advance Peace, which offers cash stipends to gang members who remain peaceful.

“Let’s get going on doing everything we can to save innocent lives,” Steinberg said.

The program targets key gang agitators, offering them cash stipends to graduate school and remain peaceful. It already claims success in dropping crime rates in Richmond. But the city would still have to pay half the cost of the program, $1.5 million out of the city’s general fund.

In the end, the council agreed to the program, voting 9-0 in favor.

Because policies of appeasement have worked so very well throughout history, why not give it another try?…

Police: Kansas Man Prime Suspect In 5 Execution-Style Murders Targeting White Men – Breitbart

Five murders were recorded near the same nature trails in Kansas City stretching back to August of last year. Four victims were assassinated with bullets to the back of the head, and one was shot in the back. But all were surprised from behind. In addition, all the victims were white men between 54 and 67 years of age, the Kansas City Star reported.

Police have been searching for the killer or killers for months without a break in the case, but police now say the killer broke his pattern and took his fifth victim by jumping off a city bus, shooting his victim from behind, then hopping right back on the bus.

Democrats Embrace A Single-Payer Plan That’s Radical Even By Communist China Standards – John Merline

Sanders, like all of his kindred single-payer advocates, claims that every other industrialized country in the world provides guaranteed universal coverage, and has lower health costs and better health outcomes as a result.

But what Sanders and Co. never, ever, say is that those countries also require their citizens to pay a far bigger share of health care dollars out of pocket than the U.S. does today, or that most of them have some form of private health insurance in the mix.

In Denmark, for example, out-of-pocket spending accounts for 14% of the country’s health budget, according to the latest data from the OECD. Australians pay almost 20% of their health costs out of pocket. Brits pay 15% of their health costs directly, as do Canadians. Swiss citizens pay a whopping 28% out of pocket…

Trump Moves To Restore Work Requirement For Welfare – Washington Times

The Trump administration moved Wednesday to reimpose work requirements for Americans on welfare, revoking an Obama-era policy that had urged states to apply for waivers exempting the poor from having to show they were either getting job training or looking for work.

Requiring work was a key part of the 1996 welfare reform law enacted by a GOP-led Congress and signed by then-President Clinton, and Mr. Trump’s move restores the law as written.

“The waiver option offered by the Obama administration is being replaced today by an expectation that work should always be encouraged as a condition for receiving welfare,” said acting Assistant Secretary for Children and Families Steven Wagner.

The 2012 Obama policy didn’t outright gut the welfare law. Instead, it pushed states to consider applying for waivers that would let them still pay benefits to people even if they weren’t actively seeking work, job training or meeting other criteria…

The commission, which is comprised of around 170 officers, has shown that violent, far-left extremists have been thought to be responsible for over 2,000 crimes during this period, Die Welt reports.

The most numerous of the crimes listed in the report are those relating to property damage with 575 individual cases under investigation. These are followed by 330 cases of bodily injury or assault, 303 cases of breaching the peace, 123 cases of arson, and 45 cases of resisting a police officer for a total of 2,036 cases under investigation….

Teen Shot Seconds After He Tries To Steal Gun From Old Man – Washington Standard
.

.
A 16-year-old boy was shot in the stomach as he attempted to steal a gun from a 61-year-old musician in Detroit. Darius Summers, a 61-year-old grandfather, recently got his concealed carry permit, and he is very thankful he did.

“I’d never been through this,” Summers said. “Never shot a gun before. All this is new to me.”

Summers was a gas station on Detroit’s west side early Sunday morning at the end of July. That’s when a 16-year-old boy, Xavier Futrell, showed up armed and notice that Summers was also armed.

At that point, the boy attempted to rob Summers of his weapon by putting his gun to Summers’ back. Apparently, the young boy that the elderly Summers would be an easy target because of his age. Wrong!…

AP, NY Times Have Ignored Wasserman Schultz-Dem IT Scandal For Over A Month – Newsbusters

Since Imran Awan’s arrest in late July, the Daily Caller has published roughly two dozen follow-up stories on various aspects of the scandal involving the longtime rogue Democrat IT staffer and his inexplicably enriched family members.

The Associated Press and the New York Times have, from all appearances, published nothing since July 28.

At APNews.com, the site which has replaced the wire service’s old “Big Story” site but which also theoretically includes important coverage from other AP-subscribing sources, the last story on Awan, the IT staffer for former Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, was on July 26, the day the Congresswoman officially fired him.

The AP’s main national news site, hosted.ap.org, which usually but with some notable exceptions contains stories going back about two weeks, has no relevant story.

A search at the the New York Times indicates that the paper hasn’t done a story on Awan since July 28 – and that story’s fake-news headline (“Trump Fuels Intrigue Surrounding a Former I.T. Worker’s Arrest”), as I noted at the time, made it appear that President Donald Trump was the person having problems with rogue IT staffers…

Officials Ending Obama’s Sex-Ed Spending – Breitbart

Agency officials are eliminating sex-education grants created by former President Barack Obama because the grants did not lower teen birth rates, says a senior official at the Department of Health and Human Services.

The Teen Pregnancy Prevention grants are “more than disappointing,” Valerie Huber, the chief of staff for the assistant secretary for health told Breitbart News.

The Trump administration is asking Congress to end funding for the TPP grants in the 2018 budget, while it renews funding for Sexual Risk Avoidance (SRA) education, also known as abstinence-based education. Huber is the former co-founder, president, and CEO of Ascend, which promotes abstinence-based sex education.

In contrast, Obama did not request any funding for abstinence-based education in his 2017 budget. In fact, Obama’s final versions of TPP grants require training students to believe the new gender ideology which claims that a person’s biological sex is subordinate to the person’s self-declared “gender.”…

Attorneys General From 21 States Ask Supreme Court To Hear Suit Against Maryland’s Assault Weapons Ban – Washington Free Beacon

A coalition of 21 state attorneys general filed a brief on Friday urging the Supreme Court to hear a case against Maryland’s assault weapons ban.

The group believes Maryland’s ban on certain semi-automatic rifles and magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition is unconstitutional, and are asking the Supreme Court to step in and strike the law down.

“Banning certain types of firearms steps on the Second Amendment,” said West Virginia attorney general Patrick Morrisey in a statement about the group’s brief. “Law abiding gun owners routinely use these firearms for self-defense or sporting. Such an unconstitutional act cannot stand.”…

U.S. Conducts Successful Field Test Of New Nuclear Bomb – Zero Hedge

The second qualification flight test for the nuclear bomb was carried out by the NNSA and the U.S. Air Force.

Treason Update: Illinois Governor Signs Sanctuary State Law – Breitbart

Rauner signed the sanctuary state bill into law on Monday, making it illegal for law enforcement to arrest or detain illegal aliens solely based on their immigration status, the Chicago Tribune noted.

The new law will essentially make it impossible for Illinois police to notify Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) when they have a suspected criminal illegal alien on their hands, thus increasing the possibility that they will be freed back into the general public.

The sanctuary state law also makes it illegal for local law enforcement to arrest an illegal alien, even if the individual is wanted by ICE for immigration violations…

Why Did Houston’s Mayor Tell Residents Not To Evacuate? – Red State

Europe’s Asylum Disgrace – Bruce Bawer

This summer, Swedish authorities turned her down. They were fully prepared to send her back to Iran – and to her death – when the Hungarian government stepped in and agreed to take her. It is just one individual’s story, but it illuminates the dramatic difference between Western and Eastern Europe when it comes to matters that will, before too long, decide the future of the continent.

Sweden, of course, is one of those Western European countries that have eagerly granted asylum to armies of Muslims who pose as refugees from persecution but who are, in fact, economic migrants, eager to climb onto the welfare-state gravy train.

Sanctuary City Police Release Illegal Alien Who Then Murders His Girlfriend – Daily Caller

Young Chinese Are Too Fat And Masturbate Too Much To Pass Army Fitness Tests – Evening Standard

Judge Orders Anti-Trump Website To Unmask Antifa Terrorists – News Punch

Prosecutors have filed felony rioting charges against some 200 people who they say participated in the riots and are asking for the website information as they pursue their criminal cases…

Boxing Legend George Foreman Says Trump Saved Him From Bankruptcy, Scolds Kaepernick, Durant – Daily Wire

Boxing legend George Foreman has had about enough of the disrespect of the United States he’s seeing in some professional athletes, particularly Colin Kaepernick and Kevin Durant.

In an interview on the Offended America Podcast on Monday (audio below), the 68-year-old former world heavyweight boxing champion blasted the national anthem protests and shunning of the White House by the likes of Kaepernick and Durant, suggesting they were born out of ignorance about just how privileged we are to live in this great country.

“The greatest day of my life was when I put on my colors, representing the United States in the Olympics,” said Foreman, who won the gold for the U.S. in 1968. “I love the United States. I love the flag. But there are a lot of people who haven’t found that reason. They don’t strive. They haven’t been brought up with people who were patriotic to even point them in the right direction.”…

Paul Ryan Plugs Tax Reform: Current System ‘Paternalistic’, ‘Condescending’ – CNS

“We have arguably the worst tax system in the industrialized world,” House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) told a gathering in Hillsboro, Oregon on Wednesday.

He called the current system “complicated,” “paternalistic” and “condescending.”

We don’t really have a system that is very fair, and one of the reasons why our system’s not very fair is because it’s really complicated.

You can sit next to your next door neighbor, have the same kind of income and pay dramatically different taxes because of all the different carve outs and the loopholes in the tax code. So, we want to clean this thing up.

We want to clean up our tax system to make it simple and fair, condense all these redundant loopholes, get rid of a lot of these bizarre special interest carve outs and just lower people’s tax rates. Cut people’s taxes, lower people’s tax rates…

Lesbian Who Invented 15 Sexual Assaults To Gain Sympathy From Girlfriends Sentenced To 10 Years In Prison – Daily Telegraph

Jemma Beale, 25, claimed she had been raped by nine men and seriously sexually by six in four different encounters over the space of three years, causing one man to be wrongly jailed.

A judge warned that her “grotesque” string of lies would increase the likelihood of guilty men going free and prevent real victims from reporting such crimes.

D.C. Refuses To Comply With Gun-Carry Ruling – WorldNetDaily

The District of Columbia has filed an emergency appeal requesting a hearing in a case recently won by the Second Amendment Foundation that struck down the city’s “good reason” requirement for obtaining a concealed-carry permit.

By making residents and non-residents prove they have a “good reason” to carry a firearm, D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier has been able to deny 99 percent of all carry applications.

But the city’s leaders have refused to abide by the July 26 decision of a three-judge panel in Wrenn vs. District of Columbia, which ordered them to stop the unconstitutional “good reason” excuse for denying permits.

The district is seeking further delays, requesting a full-court hearing in the case.

Climate Study Finds That Shifts In Global Temperature Are Likely Entirely Natural – Zero Hedge

It’s not surprising that so many people believe the idea that global warming is being caused almost entirely by human activity, given the fact that most scientists seem to believe the same thing. But scientists should probably ask themselves why there is still such a large cohort of “deniers” as they like to call them, who are adamant that anthropogenic climate change is a scam.

The reason why is that the scientific community has been caught many times tampering with climate data and making outlandish claims. The celebrities and politicians who promote this cause have also been caught on many occasions, living in palatial mansions, flying across the world in private jets, and generally just living lives of excess that produce so much more carbon that the average person. Given these facts, how could anyone take the global warming arguments seriously?

What also doesn’t help their cause, is when reputable scientists question climate change dogma. Recently, two Australian scientists published a paper that explains why the shifts in global temperature that we see today, are likely entirely natural…

Leftist District Court Judge Strikes Down Texas Voter ID Law For Having Discriminatory Intent – Washington Times

A federal court judge in Texas struck down the state’s voter ID law on Wednesday, ruling it had a discriminatory intent and effect against Hispanic and black voters.

The decision is a blow to the Texas legislature and to President Trump’s Justice Department, which had asked the judge to halt efforts to overturn the state’s new voter ID law since it had expanded voter ID options from an earlier version, and would protect the integrity of elections in Texas.

But U.S. District Court Judge Nelva Gonzales Ramos, an appointee of President Obama, said the state’s “SB 5” law did not meet requirements set forth from the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals after it had ruled in 2014 against an earlier voter ID law “SB 14.”

Over $6 Million In Social Security Benefits Stolen From Bank Accounts – Washington Free Beacon

My Social Security was created in 2012 and allows beneficiaries to set up direct deposit accounts for their retirement and disability payments. Identity thieves soon began abusing the system.

Republicans Dig Deeper After Postal Service Cited For Workers’ Clinton Campaign Aid – Fox News

Republican lawmakers are casting a wider net in their search for wrongdoing at federal agencies in past election cycles, after learning the Postal Service violated the law by allowing employees to do union-funded work for Hillary Clinton’s campaign while on leave.

The lawmakers blasted out letters on Monday to 10 other federal government agencies questioning their unpaid leave policy for union-related political work.

Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson, R-Wis., led the charge on the review of agencies’ practices after spurring an investigation by the Office of Special Counsel (OSC) beginning in October 2016.

But Rocklin Academy Schools has countered that it didn’t have to tell parents about the transgenderism lesson that has left a number of five-year-olds shaken and disturbed.

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.

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…

Bannon Thinking About Starting His Own TV News Network – Axios
.

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.

Now he has the means, motive and opportunity…

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 assailant, Witt says, was looking to do much more damage…

Russia Bans Jehovah’s Witnesses Bible As Extremist Literature – Daily Caller

Russian courts banned the Jehovah’s Witnesses Bible as extremist literature Thursday, after deeming it not a bible.

The Vyborg City Court banned the New World Translation of the Bible after an expert study from Moscow’s Center for Sociocultural Expert Studies (CSES) deemed that it was not a bible. 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.

The CSES experts did not have any religious studies degrees, nor were they familiar with Jehovah’s Witnesses literature, according to Dr. Roman Lunkin, head of the Center for Religion and Society Studies at the Institute of Europe, Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow…

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.

A group of bottled water drinkers has brought a class action lawsuit against Nestle, the company which owns Poland Spring, alleging that the Maine business has long deceived consumers by mislabeling common groundwater. 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.

The plaintiffs claim that falsely labeling its “groundwater” product as pure spring water allowed Nestle to sell Poland Spring water at a premium; as a result the consumers who brought the legal action are seeking at least $5 million in monetary damages for a national class and several state subclasses…

Trump DOJ Ends Obama Regime’s Operation Choke Point – Daily Signal

Republican House members announced Friday that the Justice Department has ended the controversial Obama-era program targeting payday lenders, gun shops, and other legal businesses, in response to several House Republicans who requested Operation Choke Point be shut down.

“We share your view that law-abiding businesses should not be targeted simply for operating in an industry that a particular administration might disfavor,” Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd wrote the GOP lawmakers in a letter dated Aug. 16.

The letter continued, saying the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation “subsequently rescinded its list of purportedly ‘high risk’ merchants. The Department of Justice (Department) strongly agrees with that withdrawal. All of the Department’s bank investigations conducted as part of Operation Choke Point are now over, the initiative is no longer in effect and it will not be undertaken again.”

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?

This right here is a great case for charter and private school options that give parents the right to choose a school that more closely aligns with their beliefs and educational priorities. Unfortunately, for many, there is no choice to be made…

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…
