High School Sets Aside Rooms For Muslim Students To Pray In During Ramadan – College Fix
.

.
A school district in New York State’s Saratoga County has announced it will set aside rooms in which its Muslim students can pray during the month of Ramadan.

Shenendehowa High School Principal Donald Flynt sent a letter home to parents which noted the move is to allow the students “to meet their religious obligations during school hours.”

“Prayer occurs on a daily basis for practicing Muslims,” the letter states, as reported by WRGB. “This can be challenging in today’s modern public high school. In an attempt to make reasonable accommodations for students and employees to meet their personal religious obligations, room 65 in High School West and room 109 in High School East have been set aside so students can incorporate this important aspect of their religion into their daily activities while at school.”…

Yale Honors Snowflakes Who Led Witch Hunt Against Professors Who Defended Halloween Costumes – Heatstreet

A new class of social-justice warriors is graduating from Yale, and to celebrate, the university honored two students who led a Halloween witch hunt against administrator Erika Christakis in Fall 2015. If you recall, Christakis had sent students an email defending free speech and asking, “Is there no room anymore for a child or young person to be a little bit obnoxious… a little bit inappropriate or provocative or, yes, offensive?”

In response, students vehemently protested, accusing Christakis of racism and cultural insensitivity. When Christakis’ husband, Nicholas, a professor at Yale, defended her, students shouted him down, screaming at him that he was “disgusting” and demanding that he and his wife resign. Both ended up leaving their Yale administrative roles that spring. Ms. Christakis also left her teaching role, while her husband continued on as an endowed professor.

Now, Yale has awarded its Nakanishi Prize – given for academic achievement and racial activism – to Alexandra Zina Barlowe and Abdul-Razak Zachariah, graduating seniors who were “two of Yale’s most prominent Christakis critics,” the Wall Street Journal’s James Freeman reports…

Congressman Farenthold Calls For Full Federal Investigation Into Seth Rich Murder – Neon Nettle

Texas Republican Congressman Blake Farenthold has said in an interview with CNN that, the theory that murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich was the source of the DNC emails leaked to WikiLeaks, should be investigated at the federal level.

Referring to “rumors circulating online”, Farenthold suggested that Seth Rich’s death is part of a coverup by the DNC and they are using the “Russia did it” narrative to deflect away from the truth.

“My fear is our constant focusing on the Russians is deflecting away for some other things that we need to be investigating,” Farenthold said. “There’s still some question as to whether the intrusion of the DNC server was an insider job or whether or not it was the Russians.”

“There’s stuff circulating on the internet,” he explained.

In a later interview with the Corpus Christi Caller-Times, Farenthold said:

“That should be a part of the ongoing investigation into alleged Russian interference in the election because that’s an alternative theory that deserves being looked at,”…

The Big Money Behind Fake News – Daniel Greenfield

Fake news is profitable.

The New York Times hit piece on the Comey memo earned the paper its most concurrent readers per second. Pretty good for a piece about a piece of paper that the leftist paper had never even seen and which was, supposedly, described to it by one of Comey’s associates.

But that didn’t stop it from racking up over 6 million views.

Media fake news isn’t just an agenda. It’s enormously profitable. Hit pieces powered by anonymous sources bring in over 100,000 readers in an age when live is king. For individual reporters, finding a source, real or fake, that can back up the left’s Trump conspiracy theories can put them on the map.

The Comey story comes from Michael Schmidt who made a name by supposedly finding documents relating to media claims of a “Haditha Massacre” in a Baghdad junkyard where “an attendant was burning them as fuel to cook a dinner of smoked carp.” It was dashing and also very convenient.

The claims didn’t hold up in court…

Over Half Of Food Stamp Recipients In 21 Georgia Counties Lose Benefits Amid New Work Requirements – Fox News

New work requirements in Georgia have caused thousands of people to lose their food stamp benefits.

More than half of food stamp recipients in 21 Georgia counties have been dropped from the program following new work mandates instituted by the state, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

11,779 people without kids and considered capable of working were required to find work by April 1 in order to continue to receive the assistance. But 62 percent were dropped after the deadline, decreasing the number receiving food stamps to 4,528.

Officials in the state started enforcing the work mandate in 2016 with Cobb, Gwinnett and Hall counties. Recipients there were afforded three months to find a job or a training program or risk having their benefits cuts.

The plan is to grow the work requirements to all 159 counties in the state by 2019. 60 more will be added in 2018…

‘Sexual Emergency’ Migrant Who Raped 10-Year-Old Boy In Austria Has Sentence Reduced – Breitbart

The Iraqi asylum seeker who raped a 10-year-old boy in a swimming centre in Vienna will have his sentence reduced from six to four years after a judge felt his punishment was too “draconian”.

On the 2nd of December 2015, the 20-year-old Iraqi Amir A. brutally raped a 10-year-old boy at the Theresienbad in Vienna and shocked the country after claiming that he had a “sexual emergency”. The Iraqi was found guilty of rape and sentenced to six years, but may see freedom much sooner as a judge has now reduced his sentence to four years, meaning he may be free as early as 2019, Kronen Zeitung reports.

Amir A., who came to Austria purely for economic reasons and was found to not have been persecuted in his native Iraq, confessed to the brutal rape. He said he had “not had sex for four months” and that it was an “emergency”.

Leftist Nightmare Update: Blue Cross Pulls Out Of Obamacare Markets In Kansas, Missouri – Washington Examiner

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas City is pulling out of 32 counties in Kansas and Missouri next year because the insurer says it has lost more than $100 million on Obamacare.

The company is the latest to pull out of the individual insurance market for 2018, following major defections in Iowa and several other states. The decision is sure to become more political fodder for both parties as the Senate debates Obamacare repeal.

The decision announced Tuesday would affect about 67,000 customers and plans sold on and off Obamacare’s exchanges. It will not affect 2017 plans.

The insurer said the decision was made due to staggering financial losses and not due to uncertainty surrounding Obamacare or the law’s insurer subsidies, which are in doubt for next year.

“Like many other health insurers across the country, we have been faced with challenges in this market,” said Danette Wilson, president and CEO of the company. “Through 2016, we have lost more than $100 million. This is unsustainable for our company.”…

Obama Knowingly Let MS-13 Gangbangers Into The U.S. As Part Of His 2014 Illegal Immigration Surge – Washington Times

The Obama administration knowingly let in at least 16 admitted MS-13 gang members who arrived at the U.S. as illegal immigrant teenagers in 2014, a top senator said Wednesday, citing internal documents that showed the teens were shipped to juvenile homes throughout the country.

Sen. Ron Johnson, chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, said a whistleblower turned over Customs and Border Protection documents from 2014 detailing the 16 persons who were caught crossing the border.

“CBP apprehended them, knew they were MS-13 gang members, and they processed and disbursed them into our communities,” Mr. Johnson, Wisconsin Republican, said.

The gang members were part of the surge of UAC, or “unaccompanied alien children,” as the government labels them, who overwhelmed the Obama administration in 2014, leaving Homeland Security struggling to staunch the flow from Central America.

Officials at the time said the children should be treated as refugees fleeing horrific conditions back home…

Twitter Suspends WorldNetDaily Account Over Seth Rich Report – WorldNetDaily

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

But since Ryan’s failure to pass the bill, Republicans have been negotiating amendments to make it more attractive to conservatives.

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

The group said in a Wednesday press release:

Over the past couple of months, House conservatives have worked tirelessly to improve the American Health Care Act (AHCA) to make it better for the American people…

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

Call it Canada’s “New Century” moment.

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

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

Migrant Crime Rate Skyrockets 52 Percent In Germany – MILO

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

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

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

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

In Germany, if you’re not being raped by a migrant or they’re not exposing themselves to you, be careful because you might be in a crowd of people about to be attacked by one with a sharp object or a truck or something.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Given the known history of her corruption, conspiring, and plotting – leading to her dismissal as chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee after scandalous revelations about her conduct came to light during the election – it would be a naive person who grants the Florida Congresswoman the benefit of the doubt…

Snowflake Update: University Of Arizona Directs Students To Say ‘Ouch’ Whenever Their Feelings Are Hurt – The Federalist

The University of Arizona really doesn’t want any of its students to have hurt feelings, so they’ve issued a 20-page guide for professors on how to avoid offending their pupils.

The document, entitled “Diversity and Inclusiveness in the Classroom,” tells professors they should encourage students to say “ouch” when they are offended in class. The offending party is supposed to say “oops” in response, William Nardi of College Fix reports.

“If a student feels hurt or offended by another student’s comment, the hurt student can say ‘ouch.’ In acknowledgement, the student who made the hurtful comment says ‘oops.’ If necessary, there can be further dialogue about this exchange,” the document states.

The guide is written by Jesús Treviño, who is the university’s vice provost for inclusive excellence. Yes, there really is an Office for Diversity and Inclusive Excellence at the University of Arizona, and being a provost of said office is really a thing.

According to the guide, it’s okay to crack jokes in class, but ABSOLUTELY NOT IF THEY OFFEND ANYONE…

Very Fake News: Juan Williams Slams CNN Report Claiming Sean Hannity ‘Pulled Gun’ On Him After ‘Argument’ – Breitbart

The fake news establishment media at CNN is at it again. Now they are attacking Fox News host Sean Hannity, smearing his reputation with a phony story about him allegedly pointing a gun at liberal Fox News contributor Juan Williams.

Dylan Byers, one of the media writers at CNN who works for media industry defender Brian Stelter, printed a story on Thursday alleging: “Last year, after ending one of his many spirited on-air arguments with liberal contributor Juan Williams, Hannity pulled out a gun and pointed it directly at Williams.” Byers cited “three sources with knowledge of the incident” to make the claim.

“He even turned on the laser sight, causing a red dot to bob around on Williams’ body,” Byers wrote, adding in parentheses: “Hannity was just showing off, the sources said, but the unforeseen off-camera antic clearly disturbed Williams and others on set.”…

House Conservatives Hope To Strike A Deal After Speaker Ryan Admits Health Care Bill Needs Improvement – Daily Signal

Conservatives in the House are proceeding with cautious optimism as they continue negotiating the bill that repeals and replaces Obamacare following an admission from House Speaker Paul Ryan that the legislation needs to undergo necessary “improvements and refinements.”

The concession from Ryan comes just a week after the Wisconsin Republican told his fellow Republicans the bill, called the American Health Care Act, was the “closest we’ll ever get to repealing and replacing Obamacare.”

But following the release of a report from the Congressional Budget Office that predicted premiums would initially rise under the proposal and 14 more million people would be without insurance next year, conservatives say they believe the door is now open for them to unite the conservative and moderate wings of the conference.

“We don’t want to completely ignore moderate members of the House,” Rep. Raúl Labrador, R-Idaho, told reporters Thursday at a monthly Capitol Hill gathering. “That would be bad negotiating.”…

Plaintiff Behind Trump Travel Ban Lawsuit Runs Muslim Brotherhood Mosque – WorldNetDaily

The main plaintiff in the Hawaii case blocking President Trump’s revised temporary travel ban is an imam with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.

The irony is hard to miss: Trump has talked about declaring the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization, and now it is a Brotherhood-backed imam who is playing a key role in blocking his executive order on immigration.

Imam Ismail Elshikh, 39, leads the largest mosque in Hawaii and claims he is suffering “irreparable harm” from the president’s executive order, which places a 90-day ban on travel to the U.S. from six countries.

One of those six countries is Syria. Elshikh’s mother in law is Syrian and would not be able to visit her family in Hawaii for 90 days if Trump’s ban were allowed to go into effect.

Hawaii’s Obama-appointed federal judge, Derrick Watson, made sure the ban did not go into effect, striking it down Wednesday while buying Hawaii’s claim that it amounts to a “Muslim ban.”…

Temple University Blames 4.8 Percent Board Rate Increase On Leftist Soda Tax -Philadelphia Inquirer

Temple University officials plan to raise board rates by 4.8 percent for 2017-18 – and they say the soda tax is to blame.

The Inquirer reports that the sweetened beverage tax the city passed last year will cost the university $400,000 a semester, according to Ken Kaiser, the school’s chief financial officer.

Combined with a separately proposed 1.6 percent increase in board cost, which would reportedly cover contractural obligations, board rates will increase by more than 6 percent next year – and the minimum meal plan will cost $1,444 a semester, the newspaper reports.

The changes were approved during yesterday’s Board of Trustees meeting, which was conducted over the phone because of the winter storm.

The soda tax, which helps fund pre-K expansion, community schools and parks and recreation, has remained a contentious subject as business across the city report negative impacts – citing sales drops, layoffs and lagging tax revenues…

U.S. Coast Guard Seizes Over 4 Tons Of Cocaine In Puerto Rico – RT

Migrant Crime And Violence Soars In German States – Breitbart

“We are very worried about the rise in violence by asylum seekers,” the police official added. The comments come following the release of figures which reveal a 95.5 per cent spike in the number of physical attacks carried out by asylum seekers and migrants.

Around 60 per cent of the assaults take place in asylum accommodation but the other 40 per cent are carried out among the general public.

The retina is located at the back of the eye, and is made up of millions of these light-sensitive photoreceptors.

Leftist College Student Pleads Guilty To Slashing Her Own Face, Making Up Post-Election ‘Hate Crime’ – Daily Caller

A 21-year-old Michigan woman pleaded guilty Monday to fabricating a “hate crime” in which an unknown white male approached her and slashed her face with a safety-pin, local news outlets are reporting.

University of Michigan student Halley Bass admitted she scratched her own face with a pin after becoming frightened by a classroom discussion in her women’s literature class.

“I had been in a discussion in my women’s lit weirdly and there were a few people in my class that sort of said some things that scared me,” Bass said. She claims she was “suffering from depression at the time.”

The temple, once used by the secretive religious sect and believed to date back 700 years, was found behind a rabbit hole in the Shropshire countryside.

Samsung Plans U.S. Expansion, Would Shift Manufacturing From Mexico – Wall Street Journal

Samsung Electronics Co. is planning a major investment to expand its U.S. production facilities, according to people familiar with the matter, with at least five states in discussions.

Talks are continuing and no final decisions have been made, with a start date for oven-range production still undetermined, the people said, so the details may change.

In subsequent years, Samsung could eventually ramp up U.S. manufacturing of refrigerators, washers, dryers and other home appliances, which could make the total investment significantly larger, according to people familiar with the discussions.

“The idea that the FBI and associates of the Clinton campaign would pay Mr. Steele to investigate the Republican nominee for president in the run-up to the election raises further questions about the FBI’s independence from politics, as well as the Obama administration’s use of law enforcement and intelligence agencies for political ends,” Grassley wrote…

Unhinged Vegan Rams Chicken Truck With Her Car, Flees Scene, Then Locks Herself In Her House When Cops Arrive – WXIA

A Georgia woman is behind bars after deputies said she slammed into a chicken truck, fled the scene and then refused to leave her home once authorities tracked her down.

The investigation began when a truck driver told police he was traveling west on Hwy. 72 when a red four-door car hit the side of his truck. The driver said he initiated his brakes only to have the suspect vehicle slam into his truck once more – spinning in front of the truck in the process.

The truck driver pulled over and called 911 as the red car fled. He only had a basic description of the driver, a woman with shoulder length red hair. Had that been all that Madison County deputies had to work with, she might not have been as easy to find. However they reported that there was debris from the crash left on the side of the road – including her license plate.

A records check tracked the car’s owner back to a residents in the 2300 block of Spring Circle in Comer, Ga. When police initially arrived, they found no one there. However, a second attempt found both the vehicle and a driver matching the driver’s vague description…

As we have mentioned here throughout the beginning of this year, Ukraine has been (and continues to be) a major “flash point” that holds dire consequences for a Europe already in tatters. Ukraine is also a major spot of contention between Russia and the United States.

To recap, presently we have a President intent on a new era of relations between Vladimir Putin and his government. The problem lies in what the U.S. has done in the past five years under the Obama-directed State Department (courtesy of Victoria Nuland). That State Department was aided and abetted by none other than Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham.

As mentioned in other articles, the situation in the Eastern Ukrainian provinces is serious. Although the Minsk accords provided for an official ceasefire between the Kiev government under President Petro Poroshenko and the separatist militias in the Donbass region, the former has been clearly guilty of violating it repeatedly. These violations have taken the form of prohibited armored vehicles and artillery barrages in numerous cities…

Scientists Have Found A Way To Rapidly Thaw Cryopreserved Tissue Without Damage – Science Alert

Researchers have developed a technique that allows them to rapidly thaw cryopreserved human and pig samples without damaging the tissue – a development that could help get rid of organ transplant waiting lists.

Cryopreservation is the ability to preserve tissues at liquid nitrogen temperatures for long periods of time and bring them back without damage, and it’s something scientists have been dreaming about achieving with large tissue samples and organs for decades.

Not only for the life-extending applications we’ve read about in sci-fi novels, but, more feasibly, because the technology could allow hospitals to safely store organs for long periods of time.

Right now, 22 people die in the US each day on average while waiting for an organ transplant. One of the biggest challenges isn’t organ shortages – it’s that organs can’t stay ‘on ice’ longer than a few hours without being irrevocably damaged…

Wife Of Pulse Nightclub Terrorist Omar Mateen Granted Bail By Federal Judge – Orlando Sentinel

A federal judge in California granted $500,000 bail Wednesday to the Pulse gunman’s widow, who faces charges of aiding his attack.

Omar Mateen pledged allegiance to terror organizations during the June shooting that killed 49 people at Pulse nightclub in Orlando and injured dozens more.

Salman will stay behind bars for two days so the government can appeal.

The Senate voted 51-49 Thursday to confirm Rep. Mick Mulvaney, R-S.C., who will be tasked with addressing the nation’s $20 trillion in national debt, as director of the Office of Management and Budget.

Mulvaney, a Republican representing South Carolina’s 5th Congressional District in the House since 2011, will be responsible for directing the budget process and reforming entitlement policy at the Office of Management and Budget.

Romina Boccia, deputy director of the Thomas A. Roe Institute for Economic Policy Studies at The Heritage Foundation, told The Daily Signal in an email that Mulvaney has a proven track record of conservative leadership.

“With the national debt soon to exceed $20 trillion as spending on health care, old-age entitlements, and net interest is projected to grow steeply, driving our debt to ever greater heights, it’s extremely encouraging to see a fiscal conservative with a conservative track record, such as Mick Mulvaney, confirmed as director of the White House budget office,” Boccia said.

Rep. Mark Meadows, chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, said Mulvaney will serve President Donald Trump’s administration well…

During his weekly press conference Thursday, House Speaker Paul Ryan announced a bill to repeal Obamacare would be introduced next week. “After the House returns following the Presidents Day, we intend to introduce legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare,” Ryan said. He added, “It has become increasingly clear that this law is collapsing.

“Look at the events that happened this week. On Tuesday another major insurance company announced that it too will leave the marketplace. In its decision, Humana cited a lack of young people signing up, a problem that has dogged Obamacare for years now.

“And then on Wednesday, the CEO of Aetna, another large insurance carrier, said that Obamacare is in a death spiral…

Judge Finds Probable Cause To Charge Governor Chrisite Over ‘Bridgegate’ – New York Post

A judge has found probable cause to charge New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie with official misconduct for his role in the Bridgegate scandal, according to reports Thursday.

Presiding Bergen County Municipal Court Judge Roy McGeady cited testimony from the federal trial of two former Christie aides convicted of scheming to close approach lanes to the George Washington Bridge in 2013 as revenge against a mayor who refused to endorse Christie’s successful re-election bid.

McGeady’s ruling stems from a complaint filed last year by retired Teaneck firefighter and political activist Bill Brennan, a Democratic candidate for governor who is seeking to have Christie prosecuted for second-degree official misconduct.

That crime is punishable by up to ten years in the slammer.

A Christie spokesman said McGeady was “violating the law, pure and simple.”

“This concocted claim was investigated for three months by the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office, which summarily dismissed it, after concluding that the very same evidence relied upon again by this judge was utter nonsense,” spokesman Brian Murray said…

Report: Millions Of Cancer Deaths Expected From Fukushima – Your News Wire

Millions of Japanese citizens could be at risk of dying from cancer as a result of the increasing amount of radiation pouring out of Fukushima.

According to a shocking report originally published by Fairewinds Energy Eduction (FEE), “Cancer on the Rise in Post-Fukushima Japan,” one million citizens in Japan were thought to be at risk of developing thyroid cancers as a result of the meltdown.

That report based its conclusions on the the fact that scientists had understood the radiation levels at the reactor to be around 73 sieverts per hour.

However, according to new information, current radiation levels are more likely to be around 530 sieverts per hour – the highest it has been since the disaster occurred in March 2011.

These unimaginable levels represent shocking 132% increase in radiation than originally measured in 2011. Radiation of that magnitude could kill almost 50% of the Japanese population, according to a report by the National Institute of Radiological Sciences.

Greenmedinfo.com reports:

A shocking new report defies the chronically underestimated impacts of the Fukushima’s triple meltdown on the risk of cancer in exposed populations, which does not just include Japan, but arguably the entire world…

.

An impartial federal judge has issued a ruling in a lawsuit that essentially accuses CNN of peddling ‘fake news’ in their reporting.

The case involves a hospital CEO that sued the network for inflating infant mortality rates at St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach.

The former CEO of that facility, Davide Carbone, accused CNN of manipulating statistics and ignoring data that painted a different picture of the true rates at the hospital.

Manipulating statistics and ignoring facts to portray a skewed version of reality? CNN? Nah, couldn’t be.

The attorney for Carbone said that “the case against CNN certainly fits the description of media-created ‘Fake News.’”…

Flashback: U.S. Army Labeled Hillary Clinton An ‘Insider’ Threat Risk – American Mirror

As the mainstream media has heart palpitations over Michael Flynn’s alleged conversations with Russia, it’s important to remember who was a part of a U.S. Army training last summer and deemed an actual “inside” threat risk.

NBC News reported:

An Army training presentation on insider threats included Hillary Clinton among a rogue’s gallery of killers and leakers, citing the former secretary of state as an example of “careless or disgruntled employees,” NBC News confirmed on Tuesday.

The unclassified slide, which first emerged on a Facebook page that spoofs the military, was confirmed by a U.S. military officials, who said it was used as part of a lesson on how to secure classified materials and improve safety.

A spokesperson from the Army’s Training and Doctrine Command said the slide was developed 18 months ago.

California Schools Cut Meat, Cheese From Lunches To Fight Global Warming – Daily Caller
.

Oakland schools partnered with the environmental group Friends of the Earth (FOE) to fight global warming by making student lunches climate-friendly.

FOE gave kids a lunch menu designed to eliminate foods it says are “unsustainable for our planet.” The new menu features far less meat and more plant-based food. Any meat or cheese the school did use came from “pastured, organic dairy cows.” The student’s lunch menu went from beef hot dogs and pepperoni pizza to vegan stir fry tofu and vegan tostadas. The new FOE-approved menu served meat and cheese-less frequently and reduced the portion sizes.

“This is a landmark moment for school food,” Jennifer LeBarre, head of nutrition services for Oakland Unified School District, said in a FOE press statement…

Kentucky ‘Blue Lives Matter’ Bill Passes Despite Disruption By BLM Racists – American Mirror

Black Lives Matter protesters failed in an attempt to shout down members of the Kentucky House of Representatives on Monday as they voted to approve new legal protections for first responders and police.

House members approved House Bill 14, a so-called Blue Lives Matter bill, in a 77-13 vote as activists in the gallery overlooking the house chamber repeatedly chanted “Black Lives Matter” to voice their opposition, the Courier-Journal reports.

The bill, now on its way to the Senate, follows similar legislation approved in Louisiana that makes it an official hate crime to attack police and first responders because of their occupation. The measure is aimed and deterring fatal ambushes of police officers that have more common in recent years amid protests by Black Lives Matter groups and other organizations over police-involved shootings.

State Rep. Kevin Bratcher, the bill’s sponsor, said he was inspired in part by the shocking ambush in Dallas last summer that left five officers dead and numerous others wounded, WFPL reports.

“You guys don’t know what’s in my heart and I don’t know what’s in your heart, but I don’t know how anybody could vote against this bill,” Bratcher said…

Republican Bill To Eliminate The EPA Is Literally One Sentence Long – Daily Caller

Republican-backed legislation to eliminate the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is definitely one of the shortest bills Congress has dealt with in a while.

“The Environmental Protection Agency shall terminate on December 31, 2018” is all the bill says regarding EPA’s elimination. The bill’s preamble has more words than its legislative language.

Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz introduced the bill in February. The bill has three Republican cosponsors and has been referred to four House committees.

The Huffington Post obtained emails sent from Gaetz’s office in early February, asking other members of Congress to support his bill to terminate the EPA. Three Republican have cosponsored Gaetz’s bill.

“Our small businesses cannot afford to cover the costs associated with compliance, too often leading to closed doors and unemployed Americans,” Rep. Matt Gaetz wrote to colleagues

“It is time to take back our legislative power from the EPA and abolish it permanently,” Gaetz wrote.

Republicans have long dreamed of eliminating or radically restructuring EPA. The GOP’s 2016 platform suggested turning EPA “into an independent bipartisan commission, similar to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, with structural safeguards against politicized science.”…

In a statement provided to The Associated Press, Puzder said that he was “honored to have been considered by President Donald Trump to lead the Department of Labor and put America’s workers and businesses back on a path to sustainable prosperity.” His Senate hearing was scheduled for the next day.

Following news of his withdrawal, Senate Democrats and representatives took to Twitter, heralding it as a major victory.

Puzder was the focus of an intense campaign by union-backed protesters, Fight for $15 activists and Democrat senators to block his nomination.
