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

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

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

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

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

As part of the plea deal, all seven women pleaded guilty to misdemeanor fraud charges and promised to pay the money back in exchange for a 30-day suspended sentence and two years’ probation that will be dismissed if they pay the money back before the end of the year…

Venezuela Lurches Toward Dictatorship After ‘Sham’ Election – The Guardian

The United States has vowed to take strong and swift action against the “architects of authoritarianism” in Venezuela after protesters and security forces fought deadly street battles during voting for President Nicolلs Maduro’s controversial constitutional assembly.

“The United States stands by the people of Venezuela, and their constitutional representatives, in their quest to restore their country to a full and prosperous democracy,” the US State Department said in a statement. “We will continue to take strong and swift actions against the architects of authoritarianism in Venezuela, including those who participate in the national constituent assembly as a result of today’s flawed election,” it said.

Many voters decided against taking part in an election the opposition said would turn the country into a full-fledged dictatorship…

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

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

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

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

While legal analysts said the case is a stretch, a judge in Utah has allowed part of that lawsuit to proceed, and analysts concede that Mr. Sevier’s claims get to the heart of how far the 2015 Obergefell ruling stretches when it comes to nontraditional unions…

U.S. THAAD Missile Hits Test Target Amid Growing Pressure From North Korea – Reuters
.

.
The United States said it shot down a medium-range target ballistic missile in its latest test of the country’s THAAD missile defense program, which is designed to protect the country against potential threats from countries such as North Korea and Iran.

The test, conducted over the Pacific Ocean, comes amid heightened tensions with North Korea, which on Saturday said it had conducted its own successful test of a long-range intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) that proved it has the capacity to strike American’s mainland.

The latest U.S. test of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system was planned well before North Korea’s latest missile launch, but it comes at a time of rising tension with the country since Pyongyang launched its first-ever test of an ICBM on July 4…

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

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

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

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

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

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

Trump Warns Of Ending Healthcare ‘Bailouts’ For Congress, Pushes Senate For Majority Rule – Washington Times

President Trump said Saturday that Republican senators look like “fools” for refusing to change Senate rules that would allow legislation such to pass with a simple majority, and suggested that he’s looking at ending health-care subsidies for members of Congress.

“If a new HealthCare Bill is not approved quickly, BAILOUTS for Insurance Companies and BAILOUTS for Members of Congress will end very soon!” the president tweeted. “After seven years of ‘talking’ Repeal & Replace, the people of our great country are still being forced to live with imploding ObamaCare!”

The president appeared to be referring to a part of the 2010 health care law that shifted members of Congress and many staffers out of the normal health-benefits plan for federal employees and into the new Obamacare insurance exchanges. The Office of Personnel Management decided that the employer contribution portion of premiums could be provided through the exchange in the District…

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

Four German women who travelled to Iraq to join the Islamic State and were recently captured in Mosul are said to have worked for the terror group as “morality police” enforcing strict Shariah law.

The report comes from the German security services who told German magazine Der Spiegel that the four women, including 16-year-old Linda Wurzel, worked as Shariah enforcers in Mosul in the so-called Al-Khansaa Brigade. The women are said to have enforced the strict dress codes and social codes of Shariah and had the ability to physically beat women who disobeyed the laws, Die Presse reports.

At least two of the women were also involved in recruitment propaganda for the terror group, according to the report.

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

In a major win for liberty, a Federal Court of appeals in Washington, D.C. has just handed down an opinion affirming the fact that the 2nd Amendment most certainly includes the right to carry a firearm in public.

In a split 2-1 decision the majority reasoned that Washington, D.C.’s “for cause” regulation basically amounts to a gun ban in the city.

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

D.C. Circuit Judge Thomas Griffith wrote the majority opinion for the court and was joined in his opinion by Judge Stephen F. Williams…

Gauntlet Thrown: House Judiciary Committee Demands Special Counsel To Investigate Comey, Lynch And Clinton – Zero Hedge

Roughly a month ago, we noted that Republicans might be well served to stop sitting around twiddling their thumbs waiting for the next Russia ‘bombshell’ to drop and actually go on the offensive against an ‘investigation’ that has obviously morphed into mass hysteria courtesy of free-flowing leaks from a conflicted “intelligence community” intent upon bringing down a presidency rather than finding out the truth. Here’s what we said:

Of course, until someone within the Trump administration or Republican Party smartens up and calls for the appointment of a ‘Special Counsel’ to look into Hillary’s email scandal, something that should have been done long ago, and not for retaliatory reasons but simply due to Comey’s and AG Lynch’s blatant mishandling of the investigation (a point which Deputy AG Rosenstein obviously agreed with), the Democrats have no reason to calm their mass hysteria.

Baby Charlie Gard Dies In Hospice, Parents Say – Fox News

Charlie Gard, the critically ill British baby whose parents fought a highly publicized court battle to treat him with an experimental approach in the U.S., died on Friday in a hospice, his parent said.

Gard, who was 11 months old at the time of his death, suffered from a rare genetic disorder called mitochondrial depletion syndrome. Due to the illness, the baby had brain damage and was unable to breathe or move his limbs unaided.

Gard would have turned 1 next week.

The infant’s parents, Connie Yates and Chris Gard, lost a bitter court battle to bring him to the U.S. for the experimental treatment. The parents then spent months trying to persuade London’s Great Ormond Street Hospital to let the ill baby go to the U.S. for an experimental treatment they believed could help him. The parents raised more than $1.7 million to take him to America – but Charlie’s doctors opposed the idea, saying it would not help and cause the sick baby more suffering…

“It’s time to move on,” he added after pulling the bill from the floor.

The decision by McCain to vote no came after weeks of brinkmanship and after his dramatic return from cancer treatment to cast the 50th vote to start debate on the bill earlier this week. The GOP’s ‘skinny’ repeal bill was defeated 49-51, falling just short of the 50 votes needed to advance it. Republicans Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski also voted against it…

FBI Indicts 2 Pennsylvania Democrat Mayors In Pay-To-Play Probe – Washington Standard

Pawlowski is accused of being involved in the sale of city contracts. He and others had managed to direct the bids for delinquent city tax collections to his chosen firm.

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

The House used a procedural maneuver on Thursday to add $1.6 billion to a government spending bill for construction of the U.S.-Mexico border wall promised by President Trump.

Lawmakers won’t be faced with a standalone vote on approving the $1.6 billion in taxpayer funds to pay for the wall. Instead, House GOP leaders opted to tuck adoption of the $1.6 billion into a procedural vote that begins floor debate on the part of the legislation that provides funding for defense programs.

Avoiding a standalone vote on the wall funding prevented what could have been a tough vote for some GOP lawmakers. Trump had promised during the campaign that Mexico would pay for the wall.

Five Republicans opposed the procedural vote: Reps. Will Hurd (Texas), Justin Amash (Mich.), Thomas Massie (Ky.), Walter Jones (N.C.) and Steve Pearce (N.M.).

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

McKinney made unrequited small talk, asking personal questions, disrespecting how much wealth the victim seemed to have, and bragging about her own wealth.

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

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

The vigilantes are using threats of violence to discourage Chechen migrants from integrating into German society; they are also promoting the establishment of a parallel Islamic legal system in Germany. German authorities appear unable to stop them.

The Sharia patrol came to public light in May 2017, when Chechen Salafists released a video warning other Chechens in Germany that those who fail to comply with Islamic law and adat, a traditional Chechen code of behavior, will be killed.

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

Lawmakers in California have upheld the rights for pedophiles to legally marry children as young as 10 years old, in a sick and twisted ruling.

A Bay Area legislator was shocked when he learned from a young constituent that while Californians cannot legally consent to sex until they are 18, they can – with the permission of a parent and a judge’s order – get married at any age, even if their spouse is many years older.

Left-Wing Columnist Suspended After Cops Release Video Proof That His Account Of ‘Scary’ Traffic Stop Was A Lie – BizPac Review

A Missouri sheriff called out a newspaper columnist for sensationalizing a routine traffic stop.

Boone County Sheriff Dwayne Carey fired back at Columbia Daily Tribune’s now suspended columnist Bill Clark after a June 30 opinion piece in which Clark declared he was lucky he didn’t “get shot” and now knew how “minority motorists” must feel when getting pulled over by police.

“I’m lucky I didn’t get shot,” Clark, an 84-year-old white man,wrote. “Sirens wailed and when I stopped, two officers were out of the sheriff’s vehicle. When I reached over to turn off the radio and then take my wallet out of my pocket to produce the driver’s license and insurance card, I realized my hands were not at the top of my steering wheel. Danger lurked and official arrogance was to follow.”

Clark claimed his life “seemed to be in danger” and that his “rear bumper full of liberal bumper stickers” and his aging car were probably a tip-off for police that he was an “aging hippie with a weed habit.”…

9th Circuit Court Also Says No To State Of Hawaii Challenge To Trump Travel Ban – Breitbart

One day after U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson denied the state of Hawaii’s motion to broaden the definition of “bona fide relationship” for refugees and visa applicants affected by Executive Order 13780, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals followed suit.

In its June 26 decision, the Supreme Court let stand the temporary travel and refugee ban contained in that executive order but added that the ban would not apply to refugees and visa applicants with a “bona fide relationship” to an American resident.

The Trump administration quickly defined “bona fide relationship” as parent, child, sibling, spouse or fiance. The state of Hawaii wants a broader definition that would include grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and possibly more distant relations…

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

An electric car company that folded after taking millions of taxpayer dollars was founded by Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, the chairman of Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign and former Democratic National Committee (DNC) chair, but the mainstream media is ignoring this pertinent fact.

The Mississippi-based company, GreenTech, shut down in January but is back in the spotlight because this week the state’s auditor demanded the firm repay $6.4 million in public funds. Only a small Richmond, Virginia newspaper prominently reported McAuliffe’s ties to the scandal, stating in the headline that “Mississippi auditor demands $6.4M repayment from McAuliffe’s former electric car company.”

Most mainstream news outlets ignored the story altogether and a few kept McAuliffe’s name out the minimal coverage. Washington D.C.’s mainstream newspaper went with a lengthy wire service story that matter-of-factly mentions McAuliffe in the very last sentence. “Among former insiders is Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe,” the end of the article states…

14 Lessons For Stupid People – Patrice Lewis

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

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

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

The Democrats’ Soviet Insane Asylum For Trump – Jamie Glazov

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Trump authorized the Pentagon in March to conduct “legal action” against al-Shabaab in a particular area where active hostilities are occurring.

U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) said in a statement that the reason for the strike is a direct response to al-Shabaab’s aggressive moves to cement control in the region, noting that in the last eight months, the terror group has captured three African Union Mission in Somalia forward operating bases.

Syrian State TV Claims ISIS Leader Al-Baghadi Has Been ‘Killed In A Massive Airstrike’ – The Sun

Syrian state television has reported the leader of ISIS Abu Bakr al-Baghadi has been killed in an air strike. Claims suggest the world’s most wanted terrorist was blasted with heavy artillery while in the ISIS stronghold of Raqqa.

It is possible the terror chief was ‘killed’ by white phosphorus bombing campaigns lead by Coalition forces in the IS-infested region throughout last week. Dramatic footage has emerged showing the scorching munitions showering down on to the city and setting buildings ablaze.

Al-Baghdadi has a £20 million bounty on his head because of his hate-filled sermons that inspired suicide attacks across Europe. However, this is not the first time al-Baghadi has been reported dead and many experts are sceptical of the latest claims.

The death would certainly be a propaganda victory for the Assad regime as Syria’s civil war continues. According to the British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, 13 civilians have been killed in coalition are raids in Raqqa over the past 24 hours…

Czech Republic Joins Poland, Hungary And Slovakia In Refusing EU-Imposed Migrants – Gateway Pundit

The Czech Republic has joined its Central European neighbors in officially announcing a withdrawal from the European Union’s 2015 migrant resettlement program.

After much criticism of the scheme, which seeks to resettle an initial 160,000 migrants from Italy and Greece across EU member states, the Czechs have finally withdrawn citing concerns over security and the ‘’dysfunctionality’’ of what has been criticized as a shambolic program.

Prague had accepted only 12 of the 1,600 migrants required by Brussels before leaving the program, which imposes quotas on all 28 member states under threat of sanction.

The resettlement scheme was the EU’s initial response to the near Biblical wave of migrants which arrived in autumn 2015 following Angela Merkel’s decision to open Germany’s borders.

Senate Republicans Using Special Rules To Fast-Track Obamacare Replacement – KJRH

Senate Republicans are greasing the wheels for the party’s health care replacement plan.

And since the AHCA is technically a budget reconciliation bill, Democrats can’t filibuster. The bill could pass with just 51 votes.

But before they can vote on their version of a health care bill, Senate Republicans need to finalize one.

Two major holdouts are Sen. Rand Paul and Sen. Mike Lee. Additionally, Sen. Ted Cruz and Sen. Tom Cotton have voiced concern with the bill’s direction. Republicans only have 52 seats in the Senate, which means the party can only afford to lose two votes.

The Damaging Case Against James Comey – Jonathan Turley

The testimony of James Comey proved long on atmospherics and short on ethics.

The greatest irony is that Trump succeeded in baiting Comey to a degree that even Trump could not have imagined. After calling Comey a “showboat” and poor director, Comey proceeded to commit an unethical and unprofessional act in leaking damaging memos against Trump.

Comey described a series of ethical challenges during his term as FBI director. Yet, he almost uniformly avoided taking a firm stand in support of the professional standards of the FBI. During the Obama administration, U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch gave Comey a direct order to mislead the public by calling the ongoing investigation a mere “matter.” Rather than standing firm on the integrity of his department and refusing to adopt such a meaningless and misleading term, Comey yielded to Lynch while now claiming discomfort over carrying out the order…

House Republicans Vote To Replace Disastrous Dodd-Frank Regulations – Political Insider

Following the 2008 financial crisis, Barack Obama and his liberal allies passed one of the most biggest pieces of regulatory legislation in modern history: Dodd-Frank.

Theresa May’s gamble on a snap election has dramatically backfired after her quest for a “stronger mandate” to deliver Brexit ended up in the humiliation of a hung parliament, leaving her future as prime minister in doubt. The Conservatives emerged as the biggest party but are projected to fall eight seats short of an overall majority, leaving the Tories trying to form a minority government.

A visibly shaken Mrs May said during the night that the Conservative party would “fulfil its duty” to ensure stability as the start of Brexit negotiations loom later in the month. “The country needs a period of stability,” she said after winning her constituency in Maidenhead. However, senior Conservative figures said she might be forced to quit and Tory MP Anna Soubry said the prime minister should “consider her position” after running “a disastrous campaign”.

With three seats left to be declared, Mrs May’s Conservatives were projected to win 319 seats, Labour 261, the Scottish National Party 35 and the Liberal Democrats 13. In the outgoing parliament, the Tories had 331 seats; a governing party needs 326 out of 650 seats for a majority…

The Treasonous Secession Of Climate Confederacy States – Daniel Greenfield

After President Trump rejected the Paris Climate treaty, which had never been ratified by the Senate, the European Union announced that it would work with a climate confederacy of secessionist states.

Scotland and Norway’s environmental ministers have mentioned a focus on individual American states. And the secessionist governments of California, New York and Washington have announced that they will unilaterally and illegally enter into a foreign treaty rejected by the President of the United States.

The Constitution is very clear about this. “No state shall enter into any treaty.” Governor Cuomo of New York has been equally clear. “New York State is committed to meeting the standards set forth in the Paris Accord regardless of Washington’s irresponsible actions.”

Cuomo’s statement conveniently comes in French, Chinese and Russian translations.

“It is a little bold to talk about the China-California partnership as though we were a separate nation, but we are a separate nation,” Governor Brown of California announced…

President Donald Trump’s personal attorney Marc Kasowitz suggested Thursday that former FBI Director James Comey lied under oath during his blockbuster Thursday testimony and criticized him for making “unauthorized disclosures” to the press through a friend.

Kasowitz also made note that Comey “has now finally confirmed publicly” what Trump had insisted the ousted FBI director told him in private: that “the president was not under investigation as part of any probe into Russian interference.”

“He also admitted that there is no evidence that a single vote changed as a result of any Russian interference,” Kasowitz said.

Trump Nominates New Round Of Federal And District Judges – The Hill

President Trump announced 11 new appointments to high-profile courts on Wednesday, his fourth round of appointments to the judiciary during his young presidency. The nominations were met with conservative praise.

The list sent to the Senate for confirmation includes the nomination of Colorado Supreme Court Justice Allison Eid to the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, the post previously held by U.S. Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch, Trump’s pick for the U.S. Supreme Court.

Eid held her position on Colorado’s Supreme Court since 2006, and was also included on the president’s list of potential Supreme Court nominees presented to voters prior to the 2016 election.

Disability Lawyer Who Bilked Federal Government Out Of $600 Million Disappears – Law Newz

An eastern Kentucky disability lawyer scheduled to be sentenced next month for defrauding the government of nearly $600 million has disappeared, the FBI said.

Eric Conn pleaded guilty in March to stealing from the federal government and bribing a judge. He was scheduled to be sentenced next month and had been ordered to pay the government tens of millions of dollars.

But Saturday, the FBI said Conn removed his electronic monitoring device, violating the conditions of his bond and prompting the U.S. District Court to issue a warrant for his arrest. David Habich, general counsel for the FBI’s Louisville office, said Conn’s “whereabouts are currently unknown.”

A call to Conn’s lawyer was not returned.

Conn started his law practice in a trailer in 1993 and built it into one of the most lucrative disability law firms in the country. He created a persona for himself as “Mr. Social Security,” fueled by outlandish TV commercials and small-scale replicas of the Statute of Liberty and the Lincoln Memorial at his office in rural eastern Kentucky…

Canada Encourages Teens To ‘Sext’ Photos Of Naked Mole Rats Instead Of Their Genitals – Heatstreet

The Canadian Center for Child Protection, which is trying to end the scourge of “sextortion” in Canada, says kids who are asked for pictures of their genitalia over text should instead just send pictures of naked mole rats.

According to the charity, which is allied with the Canadian government, “sextortion” – or extortion using graphic, often naked photos – is a growing problem among Canadian youths. If kids want to avoid pictures of their junk being used later for blackmail, they’ll send their friends and neighbors photos of the adorable, hairless African rodent instead.

The logic is flawless: naked mole rats, which are among natures “most extraordinary creatures,” are about 4 inches long, completely hairless and kind of look like a human penis (though they do have large buck teeth and beady eyes). One of CCP’s instructors even told kids that the animal is “long, veiny, and fleshy… you can call it Willy.”

CCP even has pictures of the mole rat available on its website in case kids can’t use Google to find one of their own…

The Iowa Republican’s effort is the first new official inquiry of Clinton since her unexpected loss in the 2016 presidential election to President Donald Trump. Trump’s supporters often chanted “lock her up” during his many boisterous campaign rallies.

Saudi Arabia, Egypt, UAE And Bahrain Cut Diplomatic Ties With Qatar, Close Borders – Zero Hedge

Just days after president Trump left the region, a geopolitical earthquake is taking place in the Middle East tonight as the rift between Qatar and other members of the (likely extinct) Gulf Cooperation Council explodes with Bahrain, UAE, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt cutting all diplomatic ties with Qatar accusing it of “speading chaos,” by funding terrorism and supporting Iran.

The dispute between Qatar and the Gulf’s Arab countries started over a purported hack of Qatar’s state-run news agency. It has spiraled since, and appears to be climaxing now just days after President Trump left the region.

As Al Arabiya reports, Bahrain has announced it is cutting diplomatic ties with Qatar, according to a statement carried on Bahrain News Agency.

Muslim-Controlled Bahrain Bans Newspaper For ‘Sowing Division’ – Daily Mail

The government in Sunni-ruled Bahrain announced Sunday an indefinite ban on the independent Al-Wasat newspaper on accusations that it publishes “what sows division” in the Shiite-majority Gulf kingdom.

The ministry of information affairs said it had decided to bar the publication and stop its circulation “until further notice”, according BNA state news agency, without specifying if the ban affects the electronic edition.

The order was due to Al-Wasat’s “violation of the law and repeatedly publishing what sows division in the society and affects Bahrain’s relations with other states,” BNA said.

The decision came after the paper published an article on Sunday that was “offensive to a sisterly Arab state,” BNA said, in an apparent reference to an article that praised protests in Morocco.

The London-based Bahrain Institute for Rights and Democracy criticised the decision, saying it was “the latest in an escalated crackdown on independent civil society”…

The New York Times Just Outed The CIA’s Top Iran Spy – The Federalist

The paper justified its outing of the undercover CIA spy and his role within the agency by saying it was necessary since the agent is “leading an important new administration initiative against Iran.”

Yes. That really happened.

In an article entitled “C.I.A. Names New Iran Chief in a Sign of Trump’s Hard Line,” the newspaper of record revealed that Michael D’Andrea, who previously led the hunt for Osama bin Laden, will now be in charge of the agency’s operations in Iran.

As the Times explained in its report, Iran is “one of the hardest targets” for the CIA to keep tabs on.

‘Kushnergate’ Is A Big Fat Nothing-Burger – Paul Sperry

Trump senior adviser Jared Kushner privately met with dozens of officials from a wide range of nations as part of his role during the campaign and transition as conduit to foreign governments. But the liberal media, led by The Washington Post, have zeroed in on only one of those countries: Russia.

Why? Because the “Russia stole the election” narrative helps them explain how a political novice like President Trump could beat the seasoned Democratic candidate they’d anointed to carry President Barack Obama’s torch, Hillary Clinton.

In fact, the WaPo knew Kushner served as the official “primary point of contact” with the Russians and other foreign ambassadors as early as Feb. 10, when it published a fairly flattering story about him serving as “a shadow diplomat” in talks with “more than two dozen countries.”

The February story noted that Kushner had secretly met with foreign officials in New York and even established “back-channel communications” with other nations. But back then it portrayed the off-the-grid talks as healthy, because Kushner was “a moderating influence” among what it viewed as foreign-policy “extremists” in the new White House…

Obamacare Insurer Participation Declines 24 Percent In 2017 – Washington Free Beacon

The number of health insurers participating in the Affordable Care Act exchanges has declined by 24 percent from 2016 to 2017, according to data from the Kaiser Family Foundation.

In 2016, there were 287 insurers who offered insurance on the Obamacare exchanges and in 2017 that number dropped to 218. There were 34 states that saw the number of insurers decline, 15 states have the same amount of insurers from 2016 to 2017 and only one state added an insurer in 2017.

Five states, Alabama, Alaska, Oklahoma, South Carolina, and Wyoming, have only one insurer operating on the exchanges, leaving consumers with little choice.

In one-third of counties in the United States, about one in five enrollees, or 21 percent, have access to only one insurer operating on the exchanges. This is a significant increase from the 2 percent of enrollees in 7 percent of counties that had access to only one insurer last year…

London Bridge Terror Attack Ringleader Appeared In Channel 4 Documentary Praying To ISIS Flag – Daily Mirror

Federal Judge Declares Constitution Void, Threatens Civil Defendant With Death – Zero Hedge

Most Americans believe that we have a reasonably fair justice system with scholarly judges at the helm. Well, how about a federal judge who suspends the Constitution, confiscates all of a litigant’s assets, orders him not to hire defense counsel, and pronounces his orders enforceable by death?

That’s exactly what federal Judge Royal Furgeson did to Internet pioneer Jeff Baron, in a case that, New York lawyer David Relkin says is “the most outrageous denial of a person’s basic constitutional and human rights in this Country since the abolition of slavery.”

In the Texas case, Judge Furgeson “sentenced” Baron to an unprecedented “human receivership” to enable the judge’s lawyers to loot Baron’s Juvenile Diabetes Research Trust.

His offense? Baron was accused of not paying his lawyers enough money – “charges” that were later proven to be completely fabricated.

Report: ICE Has 27 Different Databases For Visa Overstays, Catches Only 0.4% – Washington Free Beacon

Immigrations and Custom Enforcement cannot account for all visa overstays due to inefficiencies in the agency, according to a new report. ICE arrested just 0.4 percent of visa overstays it could account for, according to an audit by the inspector general.

The agency has 27 different databases used to investigate and track immigrants who remain in the country past the deadline issued on their temporary visas. The lack of a cohesive system has “produced numerous inefficiencies,” making ICE ineffective at catching visa overstays who may pose security risks, according to the audit.

“Department of Homeland Security IT systems did not effectively support ICE visa tracking operations,” the inspector general said. “ICE personnel responsible for investigating in-country visa overstays pieced together information from dozens of systems and databases, some of which were not integrated and did not electronically share information. Despite previous efforts to improve information sharing, the DHS Chief Information Officer (CIO) did not provide the oversight and centralized management needed to address these issues.”…

FDA Approves First New Drug To Treat ALS In 20 Years – WRAL

The Food and Drug Administration said Friday it had approved the first new drug in 20 years to treat the paralyzing disease ALS.

The drug is not a cure but can slow down the inexorable worsening of the disease, which gradually paralyzes patients completely. It’s always fatal and there is no cure.

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), sometimes known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, is rare and affects between 12,000 and 15,000 Americans, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The new drug, called Radicava or edaravone, was developed in Japan, where it was approved to treat strokes.

“After learning about the use of edaravone to treat ALS in Japan, we rapidly engaged with the drug developer about filing a marketing application in the United States,” said Dr. Eric Bastings, deputy director of the Division of Neurology Products at FDA.

So, he set out with a camera to find a few and asked them if they would each let a refugee move in with them. Their shocking, immediate response was caught on video that’s quickly gaining traction on social media for good reason.

Leftists all across the world have fought tooth and nail to help people fleeing from the Middle East and other Muslim controlled countries in Africa. In fact, they go so far as to argue that refugees are entitled to live in more civilized, Western nations, but to say that not everyone agrees is a bit of an understatement…

House Oversight Committee To Investigate Obama’s Iran Deal – Politico

Citing a Politico investigation, Republican leaders of the House oversight committee said Friday they have launched a sweeping investigation into whether the Obama administration, in trying to win support for a nuclear deal and prisoner swap with Tehran last year, undermined an ambitious U.S. counterproliferation effort to thwart Iranian weapons trafficking networks.

Also in response to the Politico investigation, 13 Republican senators have demanded answers about whether the Obama administration jeopardized U.S. national security as a result of its protracted top-secret negotiations with Tehran, and then misled the American public when disclosing the terms of the two deals in January 2016.

The House and Senate lawmakers cited various portions of an April 24 report by Politico that found that the Obama administration, through actions in some cases and inaction in others, significantly hampered a much-touted federal law enforcement effort known as the National Counterproliferation Initiative at a time when it was making unprecedented headway in thwarting Iran’s illicit weapons proliferation activities…

Manufacturing CEO Says He’s Investing $2 Billion In U.S. Because Of ‘Confidence In Trump’ – Washington Free Beacon

Australian billionaire and manufacturing CEO Anthony Pratt said Friday on Fox Business that he is investing $2 billion in the United States because he has “confidence” in President Trump.

“We have enormous confidence in President Trump. He’s doing a wonderful job, and we think he will continue to do a great job,” Pratt said. “He’s reducing unemployment. As we saw today, the job figures show unemployment is the lowest it’s been for a decade, and he’s supporting manufacturing.”

“And that’s why we are doubling down on our investment in the United States, creating 7,000 high-paying manufacturing jobs, mainly in the Midwest,” Pratt added.

Veterans Memorial In Minnesota To Include Satanic Monument – Minneapolis Star Tribune

A veterans’ memorial park in Minnesota will soon include a satanic monument among its tributes, as an unintended consequence of a free speech debate.

The city of Belle Plaine, about 45 miles southwest of Minneapolis, is allowing the monument in its Veterans Memorial Park after the Freedom from Religion Foundation threatened to sue over another statue that features a soldier praying over a grave marked with a cross. The cross was removed once the issue was raised, but more than 100 residents rallied to put it back.

City Administrator Mike Votca said the city knew it had to include everyone, so it created a free speech area for all – as long as the tributes honor veterans.

The memorial from the Satanic Temple in Salem, Massachusetts, features a black cube with inverted pentagrams, a soldier’s helmet and a plaque honoring veterans who died in battle.

Doug Mesner is founder of the Satanic Temple and its nonprofit group Reason Alliance. He said the group doesn’t worship Satan, but is a non-theistic, religious group…

Gov. Terry Branstad, a Republican who is the longest-serving governor in the nation, signed the legislation into law on May 5.

Acceptable forms of identification include passports, driver’s licenses, non-operator IDs, and military IDs. The state will also issue free voter identification cards to provide a form of ID for voters who do not have any of the other documents, ensuring that no one may be excluded because they do not fit into any other category…

Defying New Jersey’s Top Judge, ICE Continues Courthouse Arrests Of Illegals – NJ

New Jersey’s top judge asked Trump administration officials last month to stop arresting immigrants inside courthouses.

As recently as last week, armed Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents in plainclothes arrested an undocumented immigrant at the Middlesex County courthouse, Sheriff Mildred Scott told WNYC. The man was free to go – except right then, immigration agents stepped in and detained him on an undisclosed charge.

That arrest came a week after Supreme Court Chief Justice Stuart Rabner pleaded with Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly to add courthouses to a list of “sensitive locations” that ICE avoids. Rabner wrote that “serious consequences” could result if immigrants fear that coming to court could lead to deportation. Rabner argued that witnesses, victims, and defendants may not show up to testify – making everyone less safe…

Insurance companies that are planning to sell Obamacare plans in two state exchanges next year are requesting double-digit rate increases for premiums, results that are likely to become fodder for the healthcare law’s defenders and its detractors.

In Maryland, insurers requested average rate increases between 58.8 percent and 18.08 percent. In Virginia, insurers have requested rate increases of 30.6 percent on average, according to an early analysis by Charles Gaba, an independent analyst and writer of ACASignups.net.

The rates, which must be approved by a state’s department of insurance, apply only to unsubsidized plans and do not yet indicate a trend. Still, Republicans have in the past used rate increases as justification for their argument that Obamacare is failing and needs their intervention…

Puerto Rico To Close 184 Public Schools Amid Economic Crisis – Los Angeles Times

Puerto Rico will close 184 public schools as part of a broad effort to pull the U.S. territory out of a crippling debt crisis, officials announced Friday.

Roughly 27,000 students – mostly from kindergarten through fourth grade – and 2,700 teachers will be affected by the closures, which are set to take place before next school year.

The U.S. territory is in deep economic crisis. Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rossello said Wednesday that the commonwealth has filed for a type of bankruptcy to help restructure its more than $70-billion in debt after negotiations with multiple creditors failed.

The financial trouble has deepened as many people have left for the U.S. mainland in search of better jobs. Consequently, the population of school children has been in steep decline, making the education system an inviting target for cuts.

Between 2010 and 2015, Puerto Rico closed 150 schools, according to the Associated Press. This new round will be the largest in Puerto Rico’s history…

Puerto Rico To File Largest Public Sector Bankruptcy In History – Breitbart

Puerto Rico is set to file the largest public sector bankruptcy in history after vulture capitalist hedge funds that bought big pieces of the island’s $73 billion in defaulted debt for pennies-on-the-dollar refused to take $24 billion haircut.

The U.S. territory made its last-ditch offer to try to avoid a May 1 bankruptcy filing, but failed to negotiate a financial restructuring that would force creditors to take a 23 percent loss on their general obligation bonds and a 42 percent loss on their Cofina sales-tax-backed debt, according to EMMA, the Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board website.

Puerto Rico’s bond defaults last summer caused the Obama administration to team-up with a bipartisan majority in Congress to pass “The Puerto Rico Oversight, Management and Economic Stability Act” (PROMESA), which turned over the island’s finances to a federally appointed committee and created a “Title III” bankruptcy process.

Court Halts Case On Clean Power Plan, Paves Way For Dismantling Of Carbon Emissions Rule – Washington Times

In a major victory for the White House, the D.C. Court of Appeals on Friday suspended a case on the Obama-era Clean Power Plan, paving the way for the administration to dismantle the rule without interference from the courts.

President and Trump and Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt want to formally undo the plan, which would’ve set the first national limits on carbon emissions from power plants. The proposal was a cornerstone of former President Obama’s environmental agenda.

After lawsuits from energy companies and Republican state officials, including Mr. Pruitt, the plan was stayed by a federal court last year. The D.C. court was expected to soon rule on whether the proposal violated the federal Clean Air Act, which had been the chief legal argument against the proposal.

Friday’s decision removes the possibility that a court could step in and declare the plan perfectly lawful even as the administration begins undoing it. Such a scenario would’ve been politically embarrassing for the EPA and would’ve represented a significant win for environmental activists…

IRS Tax Fraud Prevention Program Costs Taxpayers $18.2 Million, But Doesn’t Work – Washington Free Beacon

An Internal Revenue Service program designed to prevent fraud costs taxpayers roughly $18.2 million per year, but doesn’t work, according to the taxpayer watchdog group Citizens Against Government Waste.

In a live video call from the Oval Office to the International Space Station, President Trump congratulated U.S. astronaut Peggy Whitson Monday on her record-setting 534th day in space and urged students watching nationwide to prepare for a mission to Mars.

“Station, this is your president, do you hear me?” Mr. Trump began the call, with daughter Ivanka and NASA astronaut Kate Rubins flanking him.

“Yes sir, we have you loud and clear,” Ms. Whitson replied from the ISS that’s orbiting the Earth at about 17,000 mph.

Despite Reports By The Fake News Media, Former Fox Guest Claims She Was Never Sexually Harassed By Sean Hannity – Law Newz

Debbie Schlussel, a former Fox News guest, appeared on a local radio show on Friday and recounted an incident where Sean Hannity purportedly asked her to a hotel, and when she rebuffed his advances, she claims, she was ostracized by the network star.

The story has since gone viral garnering headlines like “Sean Hannity Accused of Sexually Harassing Fox News Guest” in publications like The Daily Beast and The Huffington Post. Now, in an interview with LawNewz.com on Monday morning, Schlussel is denying that she was ever sexually harassed by Sean Hannity. While Schlussel stands by her description of the incident, Schlussel told us that she doesn’t believe what happened between the two amounted to sexual harassment by any legal definition.

“I would never accuse him of that. Sexual harassment has a special meaning under the law, and I would never accuse him of that,” Schlussel, an attorney herself, said. Schlussel said the interaction happened in the early 2000’s when Hannity was in Detroit taping a show…

AG Sessions: Improper Payments To ‘Mostly Mexicans’ Could Fund Border Wall – Gateway Pundit

STEPHANOPOULOS: You sound quite confident right there.

Do you have any evidence that Mexico is going to pay for it?

SESSIONS: Well, we’re going to get paid for it one way or the other.

New Orleans Tears Down Confederate Monument Under Dark Of Night – American Mirror

New Orleans city officials removed the first of four Confederate monuments in the city in the dead of night Monday to avoid potential conflicts with protestors who want it to stay where it is.

Workers decked out in bulletproof vests, military helmets and scarves covering their faces disassembled the Liberty Place monument and hauled away the pieces around 5:35 a.m., as police oversaw their work from atop a nearby parking garage, the Associated Press reports.

The precautions, which included starting work at about 1:25 a.m., didn’t deter Civil War re-enactor Robert Bonner from coming down to the site to share his thoughts about the ordeal.

“I think it’s a terrible thing,” the 63-year-old said. “When you start removing history of the city, you start losing money. You start losing where you came from and where you’ve been.”

New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landreau and the City Council disagree.

The predominantly black Council voted 6-1 in 2015 to remove the Liberty Place monument, as well as statues honoring Confederate Generals Robert E. Lee and P.G.T. Beauregard and Confederate States of America President Jefferson Davis, but legal challenges delayed the action until now.

Le Pen, Macron Move On To Run-Off Election In France – Daily Caller

Centrist Emmanuel Macron and populist Marine Le Pen will go up against each other in a run-off election May 7 after finishing first and second, respectively, in Sunday’s presidential election in France.

Exit polls gave Macron 23.7 percent with Le Pen as a close second at 21.7 percent. Communist-backed Jean-Luc Melenchon and conservative Francois Fillion were tied in third place at 19 percent.

The election has been hyped up as one of the most open in decades. Candidates from both sides of the political spectrum have been in contention until the very end.

Macron is considered a political “centrist” who wants to maintain strong relations with the European Union. Le Pen wants the country to leave the EU and impose a moratorium on all immigration.

The last week of the campaign was overshadowed by a terror attack Thursday on Champs-Elysees in Paris…

Theresa May’s Tory party has seen a surge in support since the General Election was called – while both Ukip and Labour are rapidly losing their followings, a new poll has found.

The Conservatives have garnered 45 per cent of UK voters’ support, an increase of seven per cent since before the June 8 election was announced on Tuesday, the latest poll of 2,003 adults from Opinium Research revealed.

In the eight days up to Thursday Labour managed to slip by three points to a 26 per cent overall support base following Mrs May’s decision to call a general election to build-up a Brexit mandate for her party.

Mrs May’s party’s widening lead on Labour could provide her with the majority she wants as the Tories currently only have a small working majority of 17.

A new report from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Office of Inspector General (OIG) reveals startling failures during the Obama Administration that allowed 2.2 million deportable aliens to remain on the streets in a “supervised” status.

The report (attached below) issued by ICE Inspector General (IG) John Roth last week details several failures under the previous administration that built a tremendous backlog for deportation officers (DO). Those failures include imbalanced workloads for DOs, unachievable goals, a lack of clear policies and procedures, and insufficient training.

“For a long time, Mayor De Blasio and the NYPD’s leadership have failed to heed the warning that refusing to cooperate with federal immigration officials when it comes to criminals and suspected terrorists would have consequences beyond making our City less safe.

German Judge Rules Turkish Man’s Forced Violent Sex Is ‘Culturally’ Not Rape – PJ Media

The judge argued that in “the mentality of the Turkish cultural circle,” what the woman “had experienced as rape” might be considered merely “wild sex.” The judge refused to convict the rapist, because “no intention is demonstrable.”

According to the German daily newspaper Mنrkische Allgemeine (forgive the weak translation from Google Translate), the judge told the woman, “I believe Mrs. G. every word,” but added that “her tormentor probably did not know what he was doing to her.” On the night of August 18, 2016, the 23-year-old Turkish man sold drugs to the young woman and they consumed speed together.

Canada Has Detained More Mexicans In First Two Months Of 2017 Than In All Of 2016 – CBC

The Canada Border Services Agency detained more Mexican migrants in the first two months of 2017 than it did in all of 2016, new statistics show.

According to the CBSA, 444 Mexicans had been detained in Canada as of March 9.

In 2016, 410 Mexicans were held by Canadian border officials.

The spike comes immediately after Canada’s federal government lifted its visa requirement for Mexican citizens in December. In January alone, 70 Mexicans made refugee claims upon arriving in Canada.

At that time, Conservative Foreign Affairs critic Peter Kent told CBC News the change was not surprising.

“We anticipated there would be, if not an immediate spike, a surge, and it seems that is what’s happening.”

Obama IRS Rushed Like A Bat Out Of Hell To Give Satanist Group Tax-Exempt Status – Matthew Vadum

The House voted 240-175 for the Veterans Second Amendment Protection Act to go to the Senate. The White House has signaled that President Donald Trump will sign the legislation if it passes the Senate.

The bill would end the current practice under which the Department of Veterans Affairs rules that veterans who cannot manage their financial affairs are automatically entered into National Instant Criminal Background Check System as unable to own a gun.

The bill would require a judge to assess the veteran to determine if he or she is truly a threat to anyone before the veteran is added to the database.

The bill’s supporters said there is no connection between fiscal acuity and gun ownership…

Principal Recruits Students For Secret ‘Gay’ Club – WorldNetDaily

Faculty and staff members at a charter school in Sandpoint, Idaho, set up a clandestine student “gay” club, recruited students for it and concealed their activism from the affected students’ parents apparently in violation of federal law, according to letter from the nonprofit legal organization Liberty Counsel.

Consequently, Liberty Counsel will “take further action to prevent irreparable harm to the rights of our clients, as well as the parents of other children whom the school is recruiting in the absence of their parents’ knowledge and permission,” the group says in a letter to school officials from Richard L.

Australian Teacher Quits After Islamic Students Threaten To Behead Her – Heatstreet

Teachers at a primary school in Sydney, Australia have been threatened with beheading and other violence from young Islamic students, prompting one of them to quit her job.

Students as young as those in Year 5, according to the Daily Telegraph, are making the violent threats and pressuring others to read the Koran at Punchbowl Public School in Sydney.

Documents given to the newspaper allege that three staff members have taken a leave of absence owing to stress, received counselling and been awarded compensation after bullying from Islamic students.

One female teacher reportedly quit her job after it got too much for her. She claims she quit after receiving death threats to her family from her year 5 and 6 students, with some saying they would behead her.

The teacher also said she made numerous complaints back in 2014 about the extraordinary behavior in the class…

SpaceX pulled off another successful rocket landing this morning – and this time during the day on the coast of Florida. A Falcon 9 rocket successfully touched down at SpaceX’s ground-based landing zone at Cape Canaveral after launching to space. It’s the third time that SpaceX has landed its rocket on solid ground post-launch, but the first time a ground landing has been done during the daytime. The success means that the company now has eight landed Falcon 9s in its possession.

The Falcon 9 took off from the Cape at 9:39AM ET, lofting the company’s Dragon cargo capsule into space for NASA. The Dragon is filled with nearly 5,500 pounds of supplies and science experiments for the astronauts on the International Space Station…

Israeli Hospital Helps 16 Deaf Palestinian Children Hear For First Time – Times Of Israel

Sixteen deaf Palestinian children were able to hear for the first time after undergoing a procedure at an Israeli hospital to repair their hearing, Hebrew media reported Saturday.

The operations to repair the children’s hearing, known as cochlear implant surgery, were performed by doctors at Hadassah Hospital Ein Kerem in Jerusalem over the course of the past several months, according to the Ynet news website.

The last six surgeries took place over the course of just a few days.

Dr. Michal Kaufmann, who performed the surgeries, told Ynet that being able to perform the operations was quite difficult due to the “logistical challenge[s].”

“Many authorizations were required from the Defense Ministry,” she said, adding that “some of the children arrived without a medical record and required extensive tests at Hadassah alongside emotional and psychological treatment.”

The surgery involves a small electronic implant being directly inserted into the cochlear hearing nerve in the ear to stimulate the auditory senses, with an external microphone then transferring the sounds to the internal part of the device and allowing the patient to hear, according to John Hopkins Hospital…

China Is Finally Putting The Screws To North Korea – Daily Caller

China is preparing to deliver a crushing blow to the weak North Korean economy.

It is suspending all coal imports from North Korea, the Ministry of Commerce said Saturday, without going into specifics as to why it was taking action.

Coal exports are a primary source of income for the reclusive state. Following North Korea’s fourth nuclear test in February last year, the United Nations Security Council passed UNSC Resolution 2270, which placed restrictions on North Korea’s coal exports but made exceptions through the “livelihood purposes” clause. China has been accused of exploiting this loophole to continue importing North Korean coal in order to reduce international pressure on Pyongyang.

China agreed to reduce its coal imports from North Korea last April, yet by August, coal imports had surged. In August, China imported 2.47 million tons of coal from the North. In 2016, China imported 22.48 million tons of coal, a year-on-year increase of 14.5 percent.

After the North conducted its fifth nuclear test in September last year, the UNSC passed UNSC Resolution 2321, which put a cap on North Korean coal exports, reducing its annual coal export revenue by an estimated $700 million…

Leftist “Fact-Checking” Website Snopes Proven Wrong… Again – Federalist Papers

The so-called “fact-checking” website Snopes managed to get the facts wrong when trying to debunk claims that Planned Parenthood has abortion quotas that their clinics have to meet.

The pro-life group Live Action posted an interview with two former employees of Planned Parenthood. One of them, Sue Thayer, who is openly pro-life, said every clinic has a “goal” and that employees were rewarded with incentives for meeting the abortion goals.

Planned Parenthood’s abortion services make up a significant portion of their non-government revenue business. There are no such incentives for non-abortion services, Thayer said.

Another employee confirmed Thayer’s account, saying she was told “You have a quota to meet to keep this clinic open.”…

50 Rhino Poachers Shot Dead After India Unleashes ‘Zero Tolerance’ Conservation Policy – Zero Hedge

As TheAntiMedia’s James Holbrooks reports, to protect rhinos, this national park shoots poachers, and has killed over 50 so far.

“The instruction is whenever you see poachers or hunters, we should start our guns and hunt them.”

“You shoot them?”

“Yah, yah. Fully ordered to shoot them. Whenever you see the poachers or any people during night-time we are ordered to shoot them.”

This exchange took place between journalist Justin Rowlatt and a wildlife preserve guard in India and highlights a practice that’s produced both encouragingly positive and heartbreakingly negative effects – all in the name of conservation.

Last week, BBC detailed a story unfolding at Kaziranga National Park, a wildlife conservation area in east India. Since 2014, the Indian government has granted the power to park guards to shoot and kill any and all suspected poachers with little worry they’ll face legal consequences afterward.

“Kill the unwanted,” M.K. Yadava, then-director of the park – and the man who introduced the controversial policy – recommended in a 2014 report. He also stated his belief that environmental crimes such as poaching are more serious than murder, as “[t]hey erode the very root of existence of all civilizations on this earth silently.”…

A Day Without Jobs: 18 Tennesseans Fired For Taking Part In ‘A Day Without Immigrants’ Protest – KGTV

The 18 employees at Bradley Coatings, Incorporated in Nolensville, Tennessee told their supervisors on Wednesday they’d be taking part in the nationwide movement. Then, on Thursday, they were told they no longer had jobs.

“We are the team leaders directly under the supervisors and they informed us last night that we could not go back to work and the boss said we were fired,” one employee said.

The former employee asked to remain anonymous but had this message to his former boss.

“I would tell him he was unfair, after working for them for so many years, giving him our best. They could not understand that it was just one day. We were going to make up that day on a Sunday, but they didn’t understand that, and it was not the best way. They didn’t give us an opportunity and just told us we were fired,” he said.

Juvenito Quintana and 20 other all missed work on February 16th. The next day, they got a letter from Encore Boat Builders LLC in Lexington, saying they were being terminated for no show/ no call in.

Quintana says some employees got calls from management the day before telling them not to miss or else they’d lose their job. That’s why he said a lot didn’t call in, for fear.

Most of the employees had been working there for years and have small children. Quintana is a permanent resident and feels like the termination was unfair.

David Plouffe, Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign manager, was fined $90,000 by the Chicago Board of Ethics in a 5-0 vote for improperly lobbying Mayor Rahm Emanuel on behalf of Uber Technologies.

Plouffe and Emanuel had worked together during Obama’s first campaign.

The City of Chicago had operated a lucrative business auctioning off taxi cab medallions for a minimum of $360,000 per medallion. That explained why the base fare for a Chicago taxi ride was $ 3.25 for the first mile and $ 2.25 for each additional mile…

Too ‘Politically Incorrect’: Students Want Dalai Lama Banned From Campus – Red Alert Politics

Leaked Emails: Dem State Leaders Think Obama’s New Organizing Army Is ‘Grade A Bullshit’ – Daily Beast

It is difficult to overstate just how enraged state Democratic activists and leaders are with Organizing for Action (OFA), the political and community-organizing army that grew out of Barack Obama’s presidential campaigns.

The nonprofit, which functions as a sort of parallel-Democratic National Committee, was founded to mobilize Democratic voters and supporters in defense of President Obama’s, and the Democratic Party’s, agenda. Instead, the organization has drawn the intense ire, both public and private, of grassroots organizers and state parties that are convinced that OFA inadvertently helped decimate Democrats at the state and local level, while Republicans cemented historic levels of power and Donald J. Trump actually became leader of the free world.

These intra-party tensions aren’t going away, especially now that OFA “relaunched” itself last week to protect the Affordable Care Act, boost turnout at congressional townhalls, and train grassroots organizers gearing up for the Trump era.

Judicial Watch Planning To Sue FBI, NSA And CIA For Flynn Records – Breibart

Conservative foundation Judicial Watch is planning to sue several government agencies if they do not hand over records related to the wiretapping of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

The group filed Freedom of Information Act requests for the records weeks ago but are planning to sue by next week for the records if they do not receive anything by then.

Judicial Watch filed the requests with the FBI, NSA, CIA, and Treasury Department, according to the group’s Director of Investigations and Research Chris Farrell.

The group is aiming to find out whether there was ever a warrant allowing the U.S. government to wiretap Flynn’s phone calls, and if so, who requested it and why.

“If you have a warrant, attached to the warrant 99 percent of the time, there is an affidavit, a sworn declaration normally by a law enforcement officer or senior official,” said Farrell.

Such a warrant could be classified, depending on the case, he said.

A wiretapped phone call between Flynn and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak was leaked to the Washington Post and revealed in a Feb. 9 story.

The leak, which took place in December, contradicted public assertions by Vice President Michael Pence that Flynn had never discussed sanctions with Kislyak, and led to Flynn’s eventual resignation on Monday…

House Oversight Committee Pursues Charges Against Architect Of Hillary’s Illegal Email System – Dailer Caller

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee is pursuing charges against Bryan Pagliano, the architect of Hillary Clinton’s email system who ignored subpoenas to testify in front of Congress last year.

Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz, the Republican chairman of the committee, asked Attorney General Jeff Sessions in a letter Thursday to convene a grand jury to pursue charges against Pagliano in the matter.

“The authority to compel witnesses is integral to Congress’s and the Committee’s investigative powers,” Chaffetz stated in the referral.

“Allowing Mr. Pagliano’s conduct to go unaddressed would gravely harm Congress’s ability to conduct oversight. This letter details the Committee’s significant efforts to work with Pagliano and his attorneys to avoid the necessity of a criminal referral – including giving Pagliano a second opportunity to show up after first failing to appear.”

Pagliano was subpoenaed by Congress to testify on Sept. 13 and Sept. 22 but failed to up to the hearings. The Oversight Committee then voted to hold Pagliano in contempt of Congress.

President Trump Visits South Carolina Boeing Plant – USA Today

Conducting his first visit beyond the Beltway since his inauguration four weeks ago, President Trump on Friday stressed his “America First” trade and economic policies during a campaign-like visit to an airplane plant operated by Boeing – a company he has criticized in the past.

“We are going to fight for every last American job,” Trump told employees at Boeing as the company rolled out its latest model, the 787-10 Dreamliner (“Dreamliner… great name,” the president said).

During a speech in which he referenced last year’s presidential election several times, Trump repeated a policy approach that has drawn opposition from congressional Democrats and some Republicans.

While alluding to his dispute with Boeing over the costs of a new Air Force One model, Trump said he and his administration have persuaded global companies to keep or increase jobs in the United States. In many cases, Trump took credit for corporate plans that were already in the works when he won election in November.

The president also echoed pledges to change trade deals and reduce regulations that he said have encouraged companies to move jobs to other countries; congressional critics say Trump’s approach would lead to less trade and higher prices for products at home…

Report: Leftist Minimum Wage Hikes Will Lead To 1.8 Million Job Losses – Washington Free Beacon

Minimum wage increases over the next several years will result in 1.8 million job losses, according to a report from the American Action Forum.

By July of this year, 22 states and the District of Columbia will have implemented minimum wage increases. In just 2017 alone, wage increases will lead to 383,000 job losses.

While the goal of increasing the minimum wage is to increase earnings for low-income individuals, the report finds that the additional earnings transferred from the job losers to the job keepers is minimal. For example, minimum wage hikes are projected to increase earnings by only $6,900, which would be split among all employees affected by the increase.

“While proposals to raise the minimum wage are well intended, it is important to consider the negative labor market consequences,” the report states. “A 10 percent increase in the real minimum wage is associated with a 0.3 to 0.5 percentage-point decline in the net job growth rate.”

“As a result, three years later employment becomes 0.7 percent lower than it would have been absent the minimum wage increase,” the report states.

In just 2017, minimum wage increases will lead to 1,000 eliminated jobs in Vermont to 109,000 job losses in New York…

Families Sue NYC For Reporting Them To Child Services When They Homeschool – The Federalist

New York City mother Tanya Acevedo received a home visit from Child Protective Services at 7 p.m. this winter. They were investigating her for “educational neglect” because she had legally withdrawn her child from the public system to homeschool.

After Tanya let them in, a CPS investigator insisted that they interview her child in private, and inspected their apartment, including a look inside Tanya’s refrigerator – standard practice for a home under investigation for “neglect.” The officer left Tanya with stern instructions to produce documents and her child the next day at the CPS office.

Tanya called the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) for help. After many calls navigating the New York Public School District’s bureaucracy – and another visit from CPS – her case was closed. She had followed all the applicable laws to withdraw her son from public schools and begin homeschooling. The school district had not recorded the paperwork she’d filed, so her son began accruing “absences” that eventually triggered the CPS investigation.

“Even though the school knew that Tanya had filed a notice of intent to homeschool, it reported her to CPS for ‘educational neglect’ because its policy required it to do so after so many ‘absences’ had accrued,” writes Jim Mason, HSLDA’s vice president of litigation…

Two different courts, on opposite coasts, ruled in opposite directions on Friday. A Boston federal court affirmed Trump’s executive order as “bona fide”; a Seattle federal court enjoined it. Both spoke to requests for “nationally” effective rulings. Can federal courts give conflicting directions to government employees? Did Homeland predict this in their screenplays?

The Seattle decision overstepped the traditional boundaries of district court authority, especially when sister courts are ruling on the same issues. Both the Supreme Court and the Ninth Circuit warned against issuing a national order in just these kind of cases.

Unlike state courts, federal courts enjoy the possibility of national reach in their decision. Due to the risk of conflicting decisions within the courts, venue-shopping by litigants (note how the ACLU, CAIR and the Attorney Generals aren’t suing in any Trump states), and the interference with the executive branch of government in their daily duties, the Supreme Court established precedents – precedents being what constitutes “evidence” for lawyers about what the law says – to limit this problem from occurring.

First, the Supreme Court warned against issuing any relief not individually and specifically necessary to the plaintiffs before the court. Califano v. Yamasaki, 442 U.S. 682, 702 (1979)…

Fake Hate Crime: Wisconsin College Student Put Anti-Muslim Graffiti On Own Door – Breitbart

A student at a Wisconsin college was arrested for defacing his own dorm room door with anti-Muslim graffiti in order to get attention, according to police.

Officials at Beloit College in Beloit, Wisconsin, were shocked when a student, 20-year-old Michael Kee, reported that anti-Muslim threats appeared on his door and on a wall outside his dorm room. The student told police he felt he was being threatened over his religion and ethnicity.

Police initially treated the incident as a hate crime, but after an investigation they determined that the student had perpetrated a fraud and painted the graffiti himself, according to WQRF.

Officials now say the student was affected by the outpouring of support a Jewish student recently received when he was a victim of a threatening note pushed under his door. Police said Kee “observed how the Beloit College community had come together after the first reported incident and wanted similar attention.”

The police added that Kee’s fraudulent hate crime would only served to “de-legitimize” victims of real hate crimes…

David Horowitz On Left-Wing Fascist Rioters: “Throw Them In Jail Where They Belong” – Frontpage

Freedom Center founder David Horowitz and Washington Times staff writer Charlie Hurt appeared on Fox News with Lou Dobbs to discuss whether President Trump should defund the University of California, Berkeley over the rioting Wednesday night that prevented Milo Yiannopoulos from delivering a Freedom Center-sponsored speech demanding the end of “sanctuary campuses” that harbor illegal aliens.

Milo’s address, which was canceled amid violent mob attacks, fire-setting, and wanton property destruction, had been scheduled to mark the launch of the Freedom Center’s #nosanctuarycampusforcriminals campaign.

Federal Judge Unblocks Trump Travel Ban, Asks “Where Does It Say Muslim Countries?” – Zero Hedge

As we detailed earlier, in a blow to every mainstream media news outlet (and likely hurting a lot of feelings), President Donald Trump’s ban on immigrants from seven Muslim-majority countries will take effect in Boston on Sunday after a federal judge refused to extend a temporary ruling blocking its enforcement.

As Bloomberg reports, the decision by U.S. District Judge Nathaniel Gorton on Friday dealt a setback to rights advocates who argued that blocking people from seven nations in the Middle East was unconstitutional. Gorton was weighing whether to extend a seven-day order blocking parts of Trump’s Executive Order.

The case, filed by the American Civil Liberties Union on behalf of several affected immigrants, is one of several that followed Trump’s Jan 27 order, which roiled global travel by barring entry to the U.S. of citizens of Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. Individuals, organizations, politicians and some states called it unconstitutional religious discrimination against Muslims.

New Report Exposes 6 Top Republicans On George Soros’ Payroll – UFP

In a report just out, some major Republicans have been caught suckling at the teat of George Soros. The report accessed financial records from the Soros Fund and found that not only was the former Nazi Socialist financing most of the Democrat liberal nut jobs in our government, but that it was also stroking some 13 different Republicans.

A non-profit, non-partisan research group which is based out of Washington D. C. has published a list which looks like a list of Who’s Who in the Republican Party. Of course at the top of the list are some names that you will recognize from recent events. You know the jerks that keep going behind our Presidents back and trying to make him look bad, or are withholding their full support from his programs.

At the top of the list is our old friend the Vietnam War Hero, Sen. John McCain, who seems intent in stabbing his country in the back just like the good old days. Another of the treasonous group is of course, Marco “which way is the wind blowing” Rubio, followed closely by Paul “no tax relief” Ryan, and John “I should have been the nominee” Kasich.

But the Soros list also includes other names which explain a lot, like everyone’s favorite Bush, Jeb. You can also quickly find John Boehner and the ever compromising Lindsey Graham…

Judge Dismisses $4 Million Lawsuit By Leftist Pundit Who Trump Called A ‘Real Dummy’ – Law Newz

The target of a Donald Trump insult attack on Twitter fought back by filing a lawsuit against the President-elect, alleging his tweets damaged her reputation, cost her televisions appearances and subjected her to bullying. The lawsuit, filed last year by Cheri Jacobs, demanded $4 million in damages. If Trump was concerned, perhaps he is breathing a bit easier tonight after the case was dismissed by a Manhattan Judge on Tuesday who wrote that the First Amendment protects Trump’s right to hurl insults on Twitter.

The two tweets at the center of the lawsuit stemmed from an appearance Jacobus made on CNN back in February when she reportedly claimed his campaign was less than transparent about its finances.

Trump seemingly did not care for the remarks, so he unloaded on Jacobus:

Australia’s Refugees Are Not America’s Problem – Kyle Sammin

On Wednesday night, the foreign policy world was atwitter over reports of a heated phone call between President Trump and the prime minister of Australia, Malcolm Turnbull, about refugees intercepted while trying to enter Australia. The media ran with the story. Conflict gets clicks, after all. But while news reports focused on the controversy and chaos that came from this dust-up with our antipodean ally, the underlying question is strangely untouched: why should the United States accept refugees from Australia?

Accepting refugees from Syria and Iraq is a more straightforward question, whether you agree with it or not. Someone leaving those countries and arriving here is exiting a war-torn hell hole and entering a paradise.

Even sharing the burden of refugee resettlement makes some sense when you consider that many Near Eastern refugees cannot get themselves to the United States and are packed into teeming camps in nearby Jordan, Lebanon, and Turkey. Those countries are poorer than ours and lack the capacity to house millions of newly homeless foreigners. Other states with more money and room (like the Gulf Arab states) might be expected to help out…

Trump Imposes New Sanctions On Iran Over Ballistic Missile Test – Bloomberg

Iran carried out further missile tests during an annual military exercise, a day after President Donald Trump imposed fresh sanctions on a raft of individuals and companies in response to the country test-firing a ballistic rocket last week.

The country successfully tested a range of land-to-land missiles and radar systems during the drills in a 35,000 square-kilometer stretch of desert in the northern Iranian province of Semnan, the semi-official Tasnim agency reported Saturday, citing Amir Ali Hajizadeh, commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps’ aerospace division.

“If the enemy falls out of line, our missiles will pour down on them,” the brigadier general was cited as telling reporters on the sidelines of the military trials, without referring to any particular nations. Any threats made by the U.S. against Iran were “nonsensical,” Tasnim cited him as saying.

The Treasury Department published a list Friday of 13 individuals and 12 entities facing new restrictions for supporting the missile program, having links to terrorism or providing support for Iran’s hard-line Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. The entities include companies based in Tehran, the United Arab Emirates, Lebanon and China…

‘Clock Boy’ Gets Clock Cleaned In Free-Speech Victory – WorldNetDaily

There’s more trouble for “Clock Boy,” Ahmed Mohamed, and his father, Mohamed Mohamed.

They apparently will have to pay the attorneys’ fees, court costs and “other expenses” of at least one of the personalities they sued when the youngster brought what looked like a bomb to his public school and was suspended.

Conservative commentator Ben Shapiro posted a judge’s ruling in the case brought by Mohamed Mohamed against him, the Blaze, Glenn Beck, Center for Security Policy, Jim Hanson, Fox News, Ben Ferguson and others.

“Clock Boy case falls apart like a pencil box filled with clock parts,” Shapiro tweeted in celebration.

The Mohameds sued for “defamation” after their son’s incident became the talk of the nation.

He brought a hoax clock bomb to his Irving, Texas, school in late 2015 and caused a scare. He was arrested and suspended, but then turned the incident around, gaining favors from the famous, including an invitation to the White House from then-President Obama.

ISIS’ Chief Executioner Stabbed To Death In Iraq – Daily Mail

Islamic State’s chief executioner, who has beheaded more than 100 people, has been stabbed to death in an ambush in Iraq.

Nicknamed Abu Sayyaf, he was dubbed one of the terror groups scariest decapitators and was paraded in their sick videos for his huge frame.

He was also said to be leading ISIS in the Nineveh State, where he was killed by an unknown group who swarmed terrorist territory.

Abu Sayyaf, translated to mean ‘father of swordsmith’, is also the name for an ISIS branch in the Philippines synonymous with beheadings and kidnappings.

The executioner, who died in the al-Dasawa region in the western side of the city of Nineveh, was renowned for collecting the heads of his victims and dumping them in the same infamous hole in the region of al-Khasafa.

Muhammad Yawar, an Iraqi journalist, told ARA News: ‘Abu Sayyaf was one of the scariest executioners in Nineveh. He was known for his huge body and heavy arms. He was one of the renowned faces in the ISIS propaganda videos.

Seven Inconvenient Facts About Trump’s Refugee Actions – John Hayward

The sober and logical reasons for President Donald Trump’s executive order on refugees and visitors are rising above the noise after an evening of hysterical over-reactions and emotional meltdowns on the nation’s TV networks.

Advocates of sane, secure immigration policy have long noted that it’s almost impossible to have a reasonable discussion of the refugee and immigration issues, because it’s been sentimentalized and politicized beyond the realm of rational thought.

This weekend brings them another superb example of media-magnified shrieking about fascism, bleating about “white nationalists,” howling about “religious persecution,” false invocations of the Constitution, and theatrical sobbing on behalf of the Statue of Liberty.

For readers who want to wallow in the emotion, examples can be found in this handy dossier of hysteria compiled by the Washington Post. But clear-eyed adults prefer to examine plain facts about Trump’s executive order:

1. It is NOT a “Muslim ban.” You will search the Executive Order in vain for mentions of Islam, or any other religion.

Flashback: Obama Regime Stopped Processing Iraq Refugee Requests For 6 Months In 2011 – The Federalist

Although the Obama administration currently refuses to temporarily pause its Syrian refugee resettlement program in the United States, the State Department in 2011 stopped processing Iraq refugee requests for six months after the Federal Bureau of Investigation uncovered evidence that several dozen terrorists from Iraq had infiltrated the United States via the refugee program.

After two terrorists were discovered in Bowling Green, Kentucky, in 2009, the FBI began reviewing reams of evidence taken from improvised explosive devices (IEDs) that had been used against American troops in Iraq. Federal investigators then tried to match fingerprints from those bombs to the fingerprints of individuals who had recently entered the United States as refugees:

An intelligence tip initially led the FBI to Waad Ramadan Alwan, 32, in 2009. The Iraqi had claimed to be a refugee who faced persecution back home – a story that shattered when the FBI found his fingerprints on a cordless phone base that U.S. soldiers dug up in a gravel pile south of Bayji, Iraq on Sept. 1, 2005. The phone base had been wired to unexploded bombs buried in a nearby road.

An ABC News investigation of the flawed U.S. refugee screening system, which was overhauled two years ago, showed that Alwan was mistakenly allowed into the U.S. and resettled in the leafy southern town of Bowling Green, Kentucky, a city of 60,000 which is home to Western Kentucky University and near the Army’s Fort Knox and Fort Campbell…

Obama-Appointed Judge Partially Blocks Trump’s Immigration Order – Zero Hedge

Symbolic war broke out between the Judicial and Executive branches shortly before 9pm on Saturday evening, when federal judge Ann Donnelly in the Eastern District of New York in Brooklyn issued an emergency stay halting Trump’s executive order banning immigrants from seven mostly Muslim nations entering the US, and temporarily letting people who landed in U.S. with valid visa to remain on US territory, saying removing the refugees could cause “irreparable harm”.

Muslim Migrant Gang Burns Down Women’s Center Just Weeks After It Opens – Daily Express

The Women’s Centre at the refugee camp in Grande-Synthe on the outskirts of Dunkirk, northern France, was gutted by fire only a few weeks after it was officially opened by volunteers.

The centre was opened as a safe place for women refugees and their infants to get emotional support, help and information around feeding babies and young children, and health advice.

It was funded by thousands of pounds raised through crowdfunding.

According to volunteers helping refugees within the camp, which has housed hundreds of migrants trying to get into the UK since 2006, it has been infiltrated by a migrant “criminal gang” that is believed may be responsible for the fire.

President Trump Talks To Five World Leaders On Saturday – KTLA

ABC Omits From Transcript Trump Shutting Down Muir On March For Life – Newsbusters

On Thursday afternoon, our friends at RedState flagged this peculiar development that ABC News transcript excluded an exchange from the David Muir-President Trump interview where Trump scolded Muir for the media’s lack of coverage of the March for Life versus the Women’s March on Washington.

Trump’s Executive Orders Dramatically Expand Power Of Immigration Officers – CNN

The immigration executive orders signed by President Donald Trump this week could amount to a vast expansion of authority for individual immigration officers and a dramatic increase in efforts to detain and deport undocumented immigrants.

The order lays out a series of categories of undocumented immigrants that immigration law enforcement officials should prioritize for removing from the country, a reaction to what was criticized by the right as lax enforcement of immigration law by former President Barack Obama.

But experts say the descriptions include virtually every person in the country illegally and give broad latitude to individual immigration officers to decide who should be detained for deportation.

In addition to a strain on resources, critics worry the orders could cause legal concerns.

The Obama administration had prioritized expulsion of undocumented immigrants who threatened public safety or national security, had ties to criminal gang activity, committed serious felony offenses or were habitual misdemeanor criminal offenders.

Trump’s order goes far beyond that, using a sweeping definition of “criminal” and giving a single immigration officer the ability to make judgments on threats to public safety…

President Donald Trump signed an executive order Friday for “extreme vetting” of refugees from certain foreign countries under the scope of the terror watch list, but told Christian Broadcasting Network’s David Brody that persecuted Christians overseas would be given priority for entry into the United States when it comes to the country’s refugee program.

“Persecuted Christians, we’ve talked about this, the refugees overseas. The refugee program, or the refugee changes you’re looking to make. As it relates to persecuted Christians, do you see them as kind of a priority here?” Brody asked.

“Yes,” Trump replied. “They’ve been horribly treated. Do you know if you were a Christian in Syria it was impossible, at least very tough to get into the United States?…

The Democrats Retreat From Reality – Matthew Continetti

“Retreat” is an appropriate description of what took place in Harper’s Ferry, West Virginia, this week. Senate Democrats took a break from not confirming President Trump’s cabinet to visit this historic city in a state the president won by 40 points. According to Politico the assembled were scheduled to hear from associates of the Clinton family and to “hold lessons on how to talk to real people.” Oh to be a fly on the wall.

I like to imagine Elizabeth Warren and Chuck Schumer nodding sagely as Joe Manchin, the only Democratic senator with a modicum of common sense, asks a group of Trump voters to explain why calling people drug-addled unemployable racist misogynistic fascists is not, in fact, the best way to earn their votes. It’s moments like these when Barbara Boxer’s absence from the Democratic caucus would be most felt, I think. Faced with Trump supporters, the former California senator likely would respond with a hysterical and barely coherent monologue involving climate change, immigration, abortion rights, and gun control, all the while oblivious to the fact that these were the very issues that brought Trump to office. At least Boxer has pizzazz. These days the role of the clueless liberal proclaiming her moral supremacy over the déclassé is left to the nondescript, soporific, Dolores Umbridge-like Patty Murray. Here is yet another example of national decline…

Obama Has Refused To Deport 820,000 Illegal Aliens Guilty Of Murder, Rape, Drug Offenses, And Other Crimes – Breitbart

A new report estimates that there are up to 820,000 illegal aliens in the U.S. who have escaped deportation under Obama’s regime despite that many of them have been convicted of serious crimes including murder, rape, drug offenses, and other crimes.

While some estimates say there are up to 2 million criminal illegal aliens in the U.S., a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies finds there are at least 820,000 which, as the Washington Examiner’s Paul Bedard notes, is still larger than the populations of four states: Alaska, North Dakota, Vermont, or Wyoming.

The study finds that as many as 690,000 of the 820,000 have very serious convictions, while the others have lesser crimes to their record.

Bedard also quotes CIS fellow David North who discounts dividing the illegal immigrants into separate categories based on lesser or greater crimes saying, “an illegal alien with a shoplifting record, for example, is an illegal alien who does not belong here in the first place.”

During his last four years in office, the number of illegal immigrants Obama deported plunged from his first term. In fact, during 2015, the number of deportations have cratered even over those of 2014 and measured in at his lowest number thus far in his presidency.

According to numbers supplied by the Department of Homeland Security, Obama deported 333,000 illegal immigrants (of which 140,000 were convicted of various crimes) in 2015 which is less than the 414,000 from 2014 (with 168,000 those being convicted of major crimes)…

It’s All Over But The Crying: Fascist Left’s Attempted Electoral College Coup Fails – Edward L. Daley

One final, desperate effort by moonbat Hillary supporters to subvert Donald J. Trump’s legitimate victory in this year’s presidential election has come to an end, resulting in yet another spectacular defeat for ‘Her Thighness’.

Yes, the left’s much-ballyhooed electoral college coup attempt crumbled to ashes at approximately 5:30 pm (EST) on Monday when the great state of Texas handed ‘The Donald’ 36 of its 38 electoral votes, thus lifting his total for the day above the 270 mark required for the Republican candidate to be officially declared TRiUMPhant.

According to the latest live update posted on KIRO 7‘s state-by-state electoral vote count page:

Texas cast all but 2 of their 38 Electoral votes for Donald Trump.

Dec 19, 2016 5:30 PM EST Donald Trump has been elected president as he passes 270 Electoral votes.

Obama Becomes First Nobel Peace Prize Winner To Bomb 7 Countries – Your News Wire

Barack Obama, the president who promised change, actually provided more of the same. As the 44th President of the United States prepares to exit stage left, he can congratulate himself on becoming the first Nobel Peace Prize winner to bomb seven different countries back to the Stone Age.

The president who preached hope also kept the military-industrial complex in fine fettle, selling a record $115 billion in weapons to Saudi Arabia, the world’s most repressive regime, and destabilized entire regions, creating vacuums for terrorists to thrive.

As the United States renews a bombing and propaganda campaign in Syria, it seems like America’s penchant for waging war knows no bounds. During Barack Obama’s presidency, the U.S. bombed seven countries while supporting other destabilizing military actions throughout the Middle East.

Here’s a look at these seven countries and the effects of bombing. MPN reports:

Afghanistan – Despite the announced “end” of the Afghanistan War, significant U.S. military presence in Afghanistan remains. Drones are a frequent presence in Afghan skies. One strike earlier this month killed 12 people, according to Iran’s PressTV.

Iraq – The Obama administration has conducted over 5,000 airstrikes in Iraq and Syria in just the past year, David Lerman reported for Bloomberg Business. Despite ongoing U.S. military involvement, terrorism continues to be a deadly presence in Iraq’s cities.

Libya – While the European Union and its allies carried out many of the airstrikes during Libya’s civil war, the U.S. was instrumental in destabilizing that country through both military aid and direct support…

EPA Let Pollution Fester At 302 Sites For Years, Sometimes Decades – Daily Caller

People living near up to 302 highly-contaminated sites controlled by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have faced health hazards from pollution for years or sometimes decades, a Daily Caller News Foundation investigation has found.

Those sites are part of the EPA’s Superfund program, which is intended to clean the most dangerous and polluted places in America. But the agency has either been unable or unwilling to decontaminate many of the locations, allowing pollution to fester, a DCNF analysis of more than 1,300 active Superfund sites found.

Health hazards still either threaten humans or are unknown at 117 – or nearly one-quarter – of the 480 Superfund sites added before 1987, TheDCNF’s analysis found. Those locations have waited for more than 30 years for decontamination or an adequate analysis to determine risks.

“You’re not going to find a Superfund site where there weren’t feet dragging in the process,” Karen Gogins told TheDCNF. Gogins is a policy staffer with Citizens for a Health Bay, an advocacy group for the Commencement Bay Superfund site in Washington state, which was added when the program began in 1983.

Both the EPA and the site’s polluter – Occidental Chemical – have slowed cleanup progress, Logins noted.

“We’re starting to get to the cusp of things where decisions will be made,” she said. “We’re still looking at decades more work.”…

The Blue State Depression – Stephen Moore

People are leaving the Hillary-supporting states in droves

When I say the blue states are in a depression, I don’t mean the collective funk they are in because they lost the election to Donald Trump.

I’m talking about an economic depression in the blue states that went for Hillary. Here is an amazing statistic. Of the 10 blue states that Hillary Clinton won by the largest percentage margins – California, Massachusetts, Vermont, Hawaii, Maryland, New York, Illinois, Rhode Island, New Jersey, and Connecticut – every single one of them lost domestic migration (excluding immigration) over the last 10 years (2004-14). Nearly 2.75 million more Americans left California and New York than entered these states.

They are the loser states. They are all progressive. High taxes rates. High welfare benefits. Heavy regulation. Environmental extremism. Super minimum wages. Most outlaw energy drilling. The whole left-wing playbook is on display in the Hillary states. And people are leaving in droves. Day after day, they are being bled to death. So much for liberalism creating a worker’s paradise.

Now let’s look at the 10 states that had the largest percentage vote for Donald Trump. Everyone of them – Wyoming, West Virginia, Oklahoma, North Dakota, Kentucky, Tennessee, South Dakota, and Idaho – was a net population gainer.

This is part and parcel of one of the greatest internal migration waves in American history as blue states especially in the northeast are getting clobbered by their low tax, smaller government rivals in the south, southeast and mountain regions…

Washington Post: Rape Victims Offended By Virgin Mary’s Purity – Breitbart

This year the Left’s annual War on Christmas has taken a bizarre turn with a Washington Post op-ed claiming that the Virgin Mary’s purity is offensive to victims of rape.

In an article titled, “Our culture of purity celebrates the Virgin Mary. As a rape victim, that hurts me,” Ruth Everhart explains that especially in the Advent lead-up to Christmas, Mary becomes a problem for many Christians because of her pristine purity.

Mary “set an impossibly high bar,” Everhart writes. “Now the rest of us are stuck trying to be both a virgin and a mother at the same time.”

As a rape victim, this has been especially difficult for the author, she says, which led to her becoming a pastor, in order “to come to terms with Mary’s story.”

Everhart writes that she doesn’t blame her sense of ruin “entirely” on the Virgin Mary. In fact, it isn’t really Mary’s fault, she states; it’s the Church’s for manipulating Mary into a model of purity.

“Mary is not responsible for what we’ve done to her story,” she writes. “Church culture has overfocused on virginity and made it into an idol of sexual purity. When it comes to female experience, the church seems compelled to shrink and distort and manipulate.”

To some people, “vaginas are inherently dirty,” she states. “They can never be purified.”

“And isn’t that the definition of hopelessness? Does it bother you that half of the human population is condemned to hopelessness because their body parts can never be pure?” she asks rhetorically.

Never mind that you can attend a thousand Christian church services without ever hearing a sermon on purity…

Medicaid Blew $26 Million On Health Coverage For Dead People – Judicial Watch

The government spent a breathtaking $26 million to provide dead people – who were poor when they were alive – with health insurance in one state alone, according to a new federal audit. The benefit was administered through Medicaid, the federal-state health insurance program for the needy and the astonishing multi-million-dollar figure applies to just Florida but similar atrocities are likely occurring in other states.

American taxpayers may wonder how this could possibly happen, though fraud and corruption are rampant in government, especially in welfare programs. First let’s explain how Medicaid, jointly funded by federal and state governments, functions. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) administers the program at the federal level. States must create CMS-approved plans to run their Medicaid programs, which provide low-income residents with medical coverage. In some states, such as Florida, the government contracts with insurance companies and makes fixed monthly payments to provide coverage. In Florida 37 insurance companies have contracts to provide coverage.

In this case, the government continued making payments to the insurance companies long after the beneficiaries had passed away. In other words, the government doled out huge sums to provide dead people with medical insurance for years. The astounding figures were made public recently in a report issued by the Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Inspector General, which blamed the outrageous waste on lack of collaboration between various state agencies and outdated information in databases…

China Steals U.S. Underwater Drone In South China Sea – Fox News

A Chinese Navy ship stole an American underwater research drone while a U.S. crew was watching, in a South China Sea area contested by the Chinese and the Philippines, U.S. defense officials told Fox News on Friday.

The incident occurred around noon Thursday local time approximately 40 miles west of the Philippines and about 150 miles from Scarborough Shoal. For days, the Chinese ship had been shadowing the American ship USNS Bowditch, which deployed the drone, a Slocum Glider.

“This is an act of war against the United States,” Gordon Chang, analyst and author of “The Coming Collapse of China,” told Fox News’ “Happening Now.” He said the move was an act of war because U.S. military property was stolen.

The research ship is owned by the U.S. Navy but operated by Military Sealift Command, with a crew of contracted civilian mariners and scientists.

The American crew watched the Chinese take the underwater drone from a short distance away. The Chinese Navy ship was only a quarter of a mile away, a defense official told Fox News.

The Chinese have been regularly shadowing U.S. Navy vessels in the South China Sea for months, Fox News was told. The Center for Strategic and International Studies, a Washington think tank, reported Wednesday that China apparently set up anti-aircraft guns and close-in weapons systems designed to guard against missile attacks on all seven of its man-made islands in the strategically vital area…

The flight deck of 418-foot Coast Guard Cutter Hamilton was covered in more than three dozen pallets of seized cocaine, offloaded in Port Everglades with a crane, as a result of a joint effort between the U.S. Coast Guard and the Royal Canadian Navy in the eastern Pacific over the last three months.

9th Circus Court Of Schlemiels Backs California’s 10-Day Waiting Period For Gun Purchases – Washington Examiner

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has upheld a California law requiring a 10-day waiting period for gun purchases.

Judge Mary M. Schroeder, an appointee of President Jimmy Carter, wrote the opinion of the three-person panel that reversed a federal trial court that found the 10-day “cooling off” period was unconstitutional.

“Because we agree with the state that the 10-day waiting period is a reasonable safety precaution for all purchasers of firearms and need not be suspended once a purchaser has been approved, we reverse the district court’s judgment,” Schroeder wrote. “We do not need to decide whether the regulation is sufficiently longstanding to be presumed lawful. Applying intermediate scrutiny analysis, we hold that the law does not violate the Second Amendment rights of these plaintiffs, because the 10-day wait is a reasonable precaution for the purchase of a second or third weapon, as well as for a first purchase.”

Schroeder also wrote that the 10-day waiting period would have a deterrent effect on crime because gun owners looking to buy additional firearms may be dissuaded not to.

“An individual who already owns a hunting rifle, for example, may want to purchase a larger capacity weapon that will do more damage when fired into a crowd,” Schroeder wrote. “A 10-day cooling-off period would serve to discourage such conduct and would impose no serious burden on the core Second Amendment right of defense of the home.”…

10 Ways The CIA’s ‘Russian Hacking’ Story Is Left-Wing ‘Fake News’ – Breitbart

On Monday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) pledged to support a congressional investigation into whether Russian hacking affected the 2016 election. Republicans have nothing to fear from such an investigation, because they won the election fair and square.

No, Russia is not the friend that President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spent several years pretending it was. But the idea that Russian hackers coronated Trump is only the latest left-wing opiate – after white supremacists and “fake news” – designed to dull the pain of electoral defeat, and postpone the reckoning that must occur if Democrats are to pose a significant threat as an opposition party at any time in the near future.

Here are just ten of the reasons the “Russian hacking” story is a sham – a left-wing twist on the red-baiting McCarthyism of the 1950s.

1. There is actually no new information leading the CIA to its conclusion. The New York Times reports: “The C.I.A.’s conclusion does not appear to be the product of specific new intelligence obtained since the election, several American officials, including some who had read the agency’s briefing, said on Sunday. Rather, it was an analysis of what many believe is overwhelming circumstantial evidence – evidence that others feel does not support firm judgments – that the Russians put a thumb on the scale for Mr. Trump, and got their desired outcome.” In other words, someone only decided after Trump won that it the accusation was worth making.

2. The “evidence” that the CIA has gathered is inconclusive. The FBI also disagrees with some of the CIA’s conclusions about Russia’s motives. “While lawmakers were seemingly united on the need to present a strong bipartisan response, the FBI and CIA gave lawmakers differing accounts on Russia’s motives, according to The Post,” The Hill reported on Sunday…

29 Killed, 166 Wounded In Twin Suicide Bomb Blasts Near Istanbul Soccer Stadium – USA Politics Today

Twin attacks by a suicide bomber and a car bomber near an Istanbul soccer stadium Saturday night killed 29 people and wounded 166 others in the latest large-scale assault to traumatize a nation confronting an array of security threats.

The bombs targeted police officers, killing 27 of them along with two civilians, Turkey’s Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu told reporters early Sunday. He added that 10 people had been arrested in connection with the “terrorist attack.”

The civilian death toll was lower because fans had already left the newly built Vodafone Arena Stadium after the soccer match when the blasts occurred. Witnesses also heard gunfire after the explosions.

“We have once again witnessed tonight in Istanbul the ugly face of terror which tramples on every value and decency,” Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said in a statement.

The first bomb went off just outside the facility known popularly as Besiktas Stadium after the local team and neighborhood. The second blast that came moments later was attributed by authorities to a suicide bomber.

Police cordoned off the area as smoke rose from behind the stadium and ambulances began ferrying the wounded to hospitals. Glass from the blown-out windows of nearby buildings littered the pavement.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility. This year, Istanbul has witnessed a spate of attacks attributed by authorities to the Islamic State group or claimed by Kurdish militants…

Douchebag Heckles Kids At Texas Mall, Yells ‘Santa Claus Does Not Exist’ – Dallas Morning News

A Texas pastor went to a mall in Amarillo on Saturday and heckled a group of children and their parents waiting in line to meet Santa Claus, letting them know that they were really just going to meet a “man in a suit” and that Santa Claus does not exist.

The stunt at the Amarillo mall appears to be the latest in a string of similar acts by 56-year-old David Grisham, a leader of the religious fundamentalist group “Repent Amarillo,” whose mission is to “preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and wage spiritual warfare on the demonic realm,” according to its Facebook page.

He’s used similar aggressive preaching methods in the past. Grisham previously made headlines when he tried to start a boycott against the city of Houston after Annise Parker, an open lesbian, was elected mayor and an abortion clinic was built in the city.

He also tried to publicly burn a copy of the Quran in Sam Houston Park in Amarillo in 2010, but was foiled by a shirtless skateboarder named Jacob Isom, who swiped the Quran from him at the last moment and told him, “Dude, you have no Quran!”

Grisham never imagined himself as a street preacher, much less one who inspired so much animosity in people. In fact, he was an atheist for the majority of his life after his father died in a plane crash.

But then, in his early 40s, he reunited with his first love, Tracy, and things began to fall into place. He watched M. Night Shyamalan’s movie “Signs” and had an epiphany. Everything in his life was foretold…

The Democrats’ Nauseating Putin Hypocrisy – Roger L. Simon

The degree to which the Democrats have changed their tune on Vladimir Putin almost on a proverbial dime is either black comic or nauseating or both, depending on how you want to look at it. Whatever it is, it is a extremely obvious example of how party politics is conducted in our era (possibly always).

If your side does it, it’s diplomatic genius bound to yield peace in our time. If the other side does the exact same thing, it’s a horrendous mistake bordering on treason likely to cause a national calamity, if not global Armageddon.

If there were any decent, even semi-even-handed political science departments left in our country (okay, maybe there are one or two), what we might call the Democrats’ “Great Putin Flip Flop” would be a textbook case for classroom discussion.

Let’s start at the beginning, March 2009, but a few weeks after the first inauguration of Barack Obama, when a smiling Hillary Clinton presented Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov the red “reset” button, signaling the arrival of a supposed era of peace between the two countries. The new administration was greeted with hosannas for their great symbolism from their loyal claque at the New York Times, Washington Post, NBC, et al., who were oblivious, needless to say, that the word “peregruzka” printed in Cyrillic on the button, thought to mean “reset” in Russian by the linguistic geniuses in our State Department, was actually the word for “overload.”

No wonder Lavrov has such a quizzical look on his face in the all the photos…

Republican John Kennedy Wins Louisiana Runoff Election To Become Newest Member Of U.S. Senate – Breitbart

Republican John Kennedy has been declared the winner of Louisiana’s runoff election for the U.S. Senate, defeating Democrat Foster Campbell and thwarting one of the last opportunities in 2016 for Democrats to gain a seat in the upper chamber.

Kennedy’s win on Saturday night, the first GOP win since Trump’s election, gives Republicans a 52 seat majority in the U.S. Senate, making it that much harder for Democrats to make any headway in Washington.

The stakes were high enough for President-elect Donald Trump to campaign arm-in-arm with Kennedy at a rally last week in Baton Rouge.

Trump told voters how important it was to get Kennedy to Washington, noting that it is “really close” in the Senate. “We need John in Washington, not only for the vote, but for leadership and everything,” Trump said.

Days before Trump’s stop in Baton Rouge, Vice President-elect Mike Pence also hit the campaign trail for Kennedy.

Kennedy’s Democrat opponent, Foster Campbell, clearly felt Trump’s popularity in the Pelican State as he generally refrained from too many direct attacks on Trump during his campaign. Campbell even ran campaign ads promising he would work with Trump while also insisting he would have the “courage” to oppose him when necessary. But it wasn’t enough to stave off yet another GOP win for 2016.

Seeing Campbell’s campaign as a last ditch effort, Democrats and liberal advocacy groups poured money into the campaign, giving Campbell a one million-dollar campaign fund advantage over Kennedy…

John Podesta lost his cell phone not long before his emails were shared on Wikileaks.

That’s a much more plausible reason than Russian Hackers.

Why wouldn’t savvy Russian Hackers bypass Podesta and go for Hillary’s email who is notoriously sloppy with her security?

It makes zero sense, like most liberal conspiracy theories…

Shocker: DC’s Transgender Cop Poster Child Turns Out To Be A Pervert – Daily Caller

A transgender police officer in Washington, D.C., who has repeatedly been praised as a community role model has also quietly been reprimanded for improper sexually-tinged antics with underage police interns.

In a story published Thursday night, NBC4 News profiled Jessica Hawkins as a police officer who “helps build trust in [the] D.C. community” due to his work on an LGBT outreach unit. Hawkins, who previously went by Billy, is biologically male but identifies as a woman, and publicly transitioned two years ago.

NBC4’s story is just the latest positive one about Hawkins, who has also been profiled by NPR, Metro Weekly and other outlets.

But a new report by local D.C. station Fox 5 shows another, more disturbing side of Hawkins that hasn’t appeared in profiles. According to the report, Hawkins has repeatedly landed in hot water because of his conduct around interns for D.C.’s police department.

“Sgt. Hawkins showed the interns a ‘homemade video of her having sex with 4 men while she was intoxicated,’” Fox’s report says. Another complain filed against Hawkins accused him of taking under-21 interns to an Arlington gay bar, where she helped them buy alcohol and laughed at one intern’s possession of a fake ID.

According to Fox, Hawkins has admitted that both complaints against him are accurate, and was quite cavalier in the admission. Hawkins even volunteered that he had shown other interns an inappropriate picture on his phone…

Army Beats Navy To End 14-Year Losing Streak In Series – ESPN
.

The Army football team and its fans around the world can finally rejoice.

No longer will they have to listen to barbs from Navy or lament another missed opportunity in the biggest game of the year.

At long last, The Streak is over.

Army ended a 14-year run of frustration against the Midshipmen, using an overpowering running game and opportunistic defense to carve out a long overdue 21-17 victory Saturday.

With future commander in chief Donald Trump looking on, the Black Knights blew a 14-point lead before quarterback Ahmad Bradshaw scored on a 9-yard run with 6:42 left to give Army the win it had been waiting for since 2001.

The Black Knights’ 14-game losing streak was the longest by either academy in a series that began in 1890. Army (7-5) now trails 60-50-7 in one of the nation’s historic rivalries…

Republicans Cruz And Desantis To Push Constitutional Amendment Imposing Term Limits On Congress – BizPac Review

Now that Republicans have control of the executive branch, both houses of Congress and the majority of the states, Sens. Ted Cruz and Ron Desantis think they can now get term limits implemented for senators and congressmen.

In an op-ed for The Washington Post the two senators said that creating a Constitutional amendment to limit the terms of congressmen and senators would prove Congress “has actually heard the voice of the people” to “drain the swamp.”

“Though our Founding Fathers declined to include term limits in the Constitution, they feared the creation of a permanent political class that existed parallel to, rather than enmeshed within, American society. As Benjamin Franklin said, ‘In free governments, the rulers are the servants, and the people their superiors… For the former therefore to return among the latter was not to degrade but to promote them,’” they wrote.

The Amendment would limit senators to two terms and congressmen to three.

The senators pointed out that a Rasmussen poll showed 74 percent of Americans support the idea of term limits for Congress and that Trump mentioned imposing them when he campaigned for the presidency.

“The time is now for Congress, with the overwhelming support of the American people, to pass a constitutional amendment establishing congressional term limits and send it to the states for speedy ratification,” the senators wrote…

Trump Picks Exxon CEO Rex Tillerson As Secretary Of State – Zero Hedge

In a move that is certain to infuriate those who see Trump as nothing more than a puppet of the Kremlin, moments ago NBC reported that Rex Tillerson, CEO of Exxon Mobil and late entrant into the SecState race after his first meeting with the president elect this past Tuesday at the Trump Tower, has been picked by Trump to serve as his next Secretary of State.

As NBC adds, Tillerson met Saturday with Trump at Trump Tower in New York, the president-elect’s spokesperson confirmed. The selection of Tillerson comes after Trump and his transition team spent weeks searching for someone to fill the post of the top U.S. diplomat. Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani were reportedly in the running. Giuliani said Friday he had taken his name out of consideration.

The 64-year-old Texas oilman, whose friends describe as a staunch conservative, emerged as a Secretary of State contender only last week following a meeting with Trump, when it was speculated that he would consider the offer “due to his sense of patriotic duty and because he is set to retire from the company next year.”…

Trump Chooses Ben Carson For Housing Secretary – Breitbart

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Trump Widening Lead As Wisconsin Recount Rolls On – American Mirror

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“I have lost and I say it out loud,” Mr. Renzi told a news conference, adding that he would submit his resignation on Monday…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Portland Rioters Chant “Peaceful Protest” While Throwing Bricks At Trump Motorist – Zero Hedge

In a bit on an ironic twist, the Portland rioters have been caught on film chanting “peaceful protest” all while violently attacking a Trump supporter’s vehicle by launching bricks at his windows. Seems these poor, pampered, disaffected snowflakes have completely lost touch with their own “Stronger Together” slogan.

A total of 71 “protesters” were arrested on Saturday night alone according to the Portland PD.

“Surprisingly,” the majority of the arrests were of angry, millennial, white kids rather than minorities who the mainstream media insists are so adversely impacted by a Trump presidency.

Meanwhile, a flash mob in Philadelphia over the weekend left 6 people injured, including a cop who suffered a fractured orbital bone.

Six people, including an off-duty police detective and his wife, were injured after a “flash mob” attack by some among a crowd of juveniles in downtown Philadelphia, police said.

A 55-year-old off-duty police detective saw a 20-year-old man and a 21-year-old woman being assaulted and tried to arrest one of the offenders. He was punched from behind by several people, police said.

The detective’s 53-year-old wife splashed water on the offenders to try to stop them from attacking her husband, and she was punched in the face, police said. All of the offenders then fled. The four victims were taken to a nearby hospital.

Immediately afterward, there was another assault by several juveniles nearby, and two 16-year-old youths were arrested, police said…

Obama Goes On Global Spending Spree In Final Days – WorldNetDaily

As the final months of the outgoing administration wind down, President Obama will attempt to add achievements to his legacy such as the “greening” of Mexico City’s new multi-billion-dollar airport and the modernization of Mexican border crossings – that is, the ones leading into but not out of Mexico.

Designing dozens of schools and athletic fields in an Arab kingdom, assessing the deployment of “smart” street lamps in Central America, and devising a financing system to address climate change in Asian cities are projects likewise on the agenda as Obama’s second term draws to a close.

An independent White House entity, for example, intends to aid the Mexican state-owned authority overseeing construction of the new $11 billion Mexico City International Airport project known by the acronym NAICM.

The U.S. Trade & Development Agency, or USTDA, recently agreed to award a nearly $1 million grant to Group Aeroportuario de la Ciudad de México specifically to develop an environmental sustainability management plan for the endeavor, according to a planning document located through routine database research.

The goal of this technical assistance is to ensure that NAICM becomes the first airport worldwide to receive LEED Platinum certification, the ultimate “green” rating.

The Mexico airport entity is aiming to make the NAICM “one of the few airports in the world to be carbon neutral,” meaning the facility would achieve “net-zero carbon dioxide emissions,” according to the project solicitation…

Trump Looking For Ways To Quickly Withdraw From Global Climate Deal – New York Post

Donald Trump is seeking quick ways of withdrawing from a global agreement to limit climate change, a source on his transition team said, defying widening international backing for the plan to cut greenhouse gas emissions.

Since the U.S. President-elect was chosen, governments ranging from China to small island states have reaffirmed support for the 2015 Paris Agreement at 200-nation climate talks running until Nov. 18 in Marrakesh, Morocco.

Trump, who has called global warming a hoax and has promised to quit the Paris Agreement, was considering ways to bypass a theoretical four-year procedure for leaving the accord, according to the source, who works on Trump’s transition team for international energy and climate policy.

“It was reckless for the Paris agreement to enter into force before the election” on Tuesday, the source told Reuters, speaking on condition of anonymity. The Paris Agreement won enough backing for entry into force on Nov. 4.

Alternatives were to send a letter withdrawing from a 1992 Convention that is the parent treaty of the Paris Agreement, voiding U.S. involvement in both in a year’s time, or to issue a presidential order simply deleting the U.S. signature from the Paris accord, he said.

Many nations have expressed hopes the United States will stay. Host Morocco said the agreement that seeks to phase out greenhouse gases in the second half of the century was strong enough to survive a pullout…

The Cognitive Dissonance Cluster Bomb – Scott Adams

Earlier this week CNN.com listed 24 different theories that pundits have provided for why Trump won. And the list isn’t even complete. I’ve heard other explanations as well. What does it tell you when there are 24 different explanations for a thing?

It tells you that someone just dropped a cognitive dissonance cluster bomb on the public. Heads exploded. Cognitive dissonance set in. Weird theories came out. This is the cleanest and clearest example of cognitive dissonance you will ever see. Remember it.

This phenomenon is why a year ago I told you I was putting so much emphasis on PREDICTING the outcome of the election using the Master Persuader Filter. I told you it would be easy to fit any theory to the facts AFTER the result. And sure enough, we can fit lots of theories to the facts. At least 24 of them by CNN’s count.

Generally speaking, the greater the persuasion, the more cognitive dissonance you get. Trump is – in my opinion – the greatest persuader of my lifetime. I expected this level of cognitive dissonance. Next time you see a persuader of this magnitude, you can expect the outcome to be cognitive dissonance in that case too.

This brings me to the anti-Trump protests. The protesters look as though they are protesting Trump, but they are not. They are locked in an imaginary world and battling their own hallucinations of the future. Here’s the setup that triggered them.

1. They believe they are smart and well-informed.

Senior Department of Justice official Peter J. Kadzik, newly exposed by WikiLeaks as colluding with Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, is the same Obama appointee who helped cover up the Internal Revenue Service’s deliberate targeting of conservative and Tea Party groups.

[Lois] Lerner refused to testify at congressional hearings, instead invoking her Fifth Amendment rights to avoid possible self-incrimination. Congressional investigators found that the IRS targeted right-of-center 501(c)(4) nonprofit advocacy groups during the 2010 and 2012 election cycles. They determined that Lerner organized an unprecedented crackdown on Tea Party and conservative groups and then attempted to scapegoat those nonprofits, blaming them for the harsh treatment they received at her instigation.

At DOJ, Kadzik also put the kibosh a year ago on any possible criminal prosecution of Lois Lerner… Kadzik was dismissive. “Ineffective management is not a crime,” he wrote. “The Department of Justice’s exhaustive probe revealed no evidence that would support a criminal prosecution. What occurred is disquieting and may necessitate corrective action – but it does not warrant criminal prosecution.”

Kadzik wrote there was no proof of bad intent on Lerner’s part and that she seemed to try to correct the inappropriately tough scrutiny on conservative and Tea Party nonprofits once she “recognized that it was wrong.” “In fact, Ms. Lerner was the first IRS official to recognize the magnitude of the problem and to take concerted steps to fix it,” he wrote.

Kadzik is tied to the Democratic Party Establishment and is a donor to Democrat candidates. Using his private Gmail account, on May 19, 2015, Kadzik tipped off John Podesta…

Scenes From The Liberal Meltdown – New York Post
.

.
Stop the insanity!

Days after Donald Trump stunned the world by winning the presidency, liberal America remains in the throes of a massive mental and emotional meltdown.

Anti-Trump protests have spread to more cities and continue to turn violent. In Portland Thursday night, rioters stoned police and vandalized businesses and cars.

Anyone expressing support for Trump has become the target of unrestrained venom: There are calls to boycott New Balance – its sneakers have been publicly burned – because an official said Trump would be better on trade issues.

Meanwhile, the CEO of Grubhub, the online food-delivery service, demanded that employees who agree with Trump resign, because “you have no place here.” (He had to retreat: His lawyers read him the First Amendment and noted that political discrimination also violates California law.)…

Tsunami Hits New Zealand Following 7.8-Magnitude Earthquake – Globe And Mail

A powerful earthquake and series of aftershocks shook New Zealand early on Monday, killing at least two people and prompting a tsunami warning that sent thousands fleeing to higher ground.

Emergency response teams were dispatched by helicopter to the region at the epicentre of the 7.8 magnitude quake, some 91 km (57 miles) north-northeast of Christchurch in the South Island, amid reports of injuries and collapsed buildings.

Prime Minister John Key told a dawn news conference in the capital of Wellington, where the quake was also felt strongly, that two people had been killed. Police said one of the victims was found in a house in the coastal tourist town of Kaikoura.

“It was the most significant shock I can remember in Wellington,” Key told reporters, although he stopped short of calling a national emergency. “There will be quite major costs around roads and infrastructure.”

Emergency officials were meeting later on Monday morning, added Key.

Power was out and phone lines down in many areas of the country, while roads were blocked by landslips. But a tsunami warning that led to mass evacuations was downgraded after large swells hit Wellington, in the North Island, and Christchurch, the South Island’s largest city.

The first tremor, just 23 km (14 miles) deep, struck the Pacific island nation just after midnight, jolting many from their sleep and raising memories of the 6.3 magnitude Christchurch quake in 2011, which killed 185 people. New Zealand’s Geonet measured Monday’s quake at magnitude 7.5, while the U.S. Geological Survey put it at 7.8…

Facebook Profile Glitch ‘Kills’ Millions, Even Mark Zuckerberg – The Guardian

Rumors of Mark Zuckerberg’s death may have been greatly exaggerated – but by his own billion-plus user website, as a glitch on Friday afternoon led Facebook to declare two million users, including Zuckerberg himself, prematurely dead.

U Penn Hosts Post-Election ‘Breathing Space’: Puppy Cuddling, Coloring, Chocolate – College Fix

A dorm at the University of Pennsylvania on Wednesday hosted a post-election “Breathing Space” for students stressed out by election results that included cuddling with cats and a puppy, coloring and crafting, and snacks such as tea and chocolate.

The event at the Ivy League insitution was hosted by the faculty director of Fisher Hassenfeld College House.

“There were actual cats and a puppy there,” Penn student Daniel Tancredi told The College Fix via email. “There were sheets of paper available with black and white printed designs on them for students to color in. Essentially they looked like pages from a coloring book that were printed from a computer. They all had positive feel-good messages on them. Students colored them in with colored pencils.”

The space Wednesday did not include TV watching.

“For the most part, students just hung out and ate snacks and made small talk,” Tancredi said. “Of course, that was in addition to coloring and playing with the animals. The election was mentioned a few times, though mostly in very timid and fearful tones. The event as a whole seemed to be an escape from the reality of the election results.”

The “Breathing Space” was billed by the faculty director of Fisher Hassenfeld, who hosted it, as an “open safe space to process recent events.”

“[O]ur aim is just to make a safe and quiet space to relax a bit at a time at which opening a space for quiet and relaxation feels especially important,” an email to students announcing the event stated…

Congressman Gohmert: Trump’s Wall Will Get Done, And There’s Billions Available For It – CNS

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) appeared on “Fox & Friends” on Friday morning to discuss President-elect Donald Trump’s campaign promise to “build a wall along the southern border.”

Gohmert assured host Steve Doocy that the wall “will get done,” arguing that in the past “there’s been billions of dollars appropriated for a virtual wall,” but “Janet Napolitano head of Homeland Security, she just said, you know what, I don’t want to do that, and we let her get away with disobeying the law.”

Doocy asked Gohmert if he thought Trump would run into a wall with Congress in delivering on his promise to build a wall.

“He may have trouble with some,” Gohmert replied, “but I’ve been thrilled the way our Republican leadership this week has just gotten all excited about Trump. You know, as my friend Paul Ryan said, gee he was hearing voices none of the rest of us heard…

Trump Effect: Illegals Already Leaving U.S. – GJWHG

Under Obama, two controversial amnesty programs were set up, DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) and DAPA (Deferred Action for Parents of Americans). To enter the the two programs, the 1.4 million illegals had to hand over their identities, home addresses, and admit to being in the United States illegally, therefore creating a list of illegal immigrants in the country. Now those same immigrants are fleeing for the border.

“I was surprised anyone would be stupid enough to sign up for DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) and DAPA (Deferred Action for Parents of Americans). Yet apparently hundreds of thousands of people did so anyway,” said John Miano of the Center for Immigration Studies.

He said in a blog post that the programs are dead under a Trump administration and those who signed up “created a list of prime candidates for deportation with names, addresses, and an admission of illegal alien status.”

Secrets has already received reports that illegals are already starting to leave the country. One source said that some in Virginia left for the border on Wednesday, the day Donald Trump was declared the winner.

The agency that took the names, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, has on file 1,443,762 names of applicants for DACA and DAPA. They break down this way:

Donald Trump Confirms He Won’t Accept $400,000 Annual Presidential Salary – Daily Express

Following his US presidential election win earlier this week, questions have been raised about whether the billionaire will accept the £320,000 ($400,000) salary the US President is entitled to.

At an event in Rochester, New Hampshire, in September 2015, Trump announced: “The first thing I’m going to do is tell you that if I’m elected president, I’m accepting no salary, okay? That’s not a big deal for me.”

Later that week in a Twitter Q&A session a similar question was asked, to which Trump replied: “As far as the salary is concerned – I won’t take even one dollar. I am totally giving up my salary if I become president.”

If he turns down the £320,000 salary, Trump will become only the third President in US history not to accept the hefty sum…

Protesters Get A Lesson In Democracy – Howie Carr

So the little snowflakes were out on the streets again last night, tying up traffic and waving their “NOT MY PRESIDENT!” signs.

Have you noticed how many of the riff-raff can’t wait to go in front of the TV cameras to announce in broken English that the reason they hate President-elect Trump is because they’re illegal aliens.

Then they hold up their signs saying “NOT MY PRESIDENT!”

Well then, of course he’s not your president. You’re from Guatemala, or maybe Honduras.

Last night, as a public service to the viewing public, Fox News Channel started running English-language subtitles under the anti-Trump sound bites. I’m serious.

The other kind of demonstrators are these young women with trust funds who sound like Valley Girls. The way they speak is called up-talking: “Like, do you know he wants to repeal, like – ” the voice begins to rise, questioningly, and then ends in an hysterical shriek – “ROE V. WADE!?!?”

Like, this is not what democracy is ALL ABOUT!?!?”

Actually, it is. The problem is, this is the first election these coddled millennials have ever come out on the short end of. This is the first time they haven’t gotten a participation trophy. They have never learned to cope with losing. If they don’t win, the system must be… rigged.

Even so, their rage seems a little over the top. I mean, correct me if I’m wrong, but have there been any jackbooted thugs kicking down the doors in the projects, confiscating EBT cards and Obamaphones?

Of course not. But maybe we’re just seeing some preventive rioting. They want to loot a package store or two in case Trump decides to bring back Prohibition after he trashes Roe v. Wade…

Hillary Directed Her Maid To Print Out Classified Materials – New York Post

As secretary of state, Hillary Clinton routinely asked her maid to print out sensitive government e-mails and documents – including ones containing classified information – from her house in Washington, DC, e-mails and FBI memos show. But the housekeeper lacked the security clearance to handle such material.

In fact, Marina Santos was called on so frequently to receive e-mails that she may hold the secrets to E-mailgate – if only the FBI and Congress would subpoena her and the equipment she used.

Clinton entrusted far more than the care of her DC residence, known as Whitehaven, to Santos. She expected the Filipino immigrant to handle state secrets, further opening the Democratic presidential nominee to criticism that she played fast and loose with national security.

Clinton would first receive highly sensitive e-mails from top aides at the State Department and then request that they, in turn, forward the messages and any attached documents to Santos to print out for her at the home.

Among other things, Clinton requested Santos print out drafts of her speeches, confidential memos and “call sheets” – background information and talking points prepared for the secretary of state in advance of a phone call with a foreign head of state.

“Pls ask Marina to print for me in am,” Clinton e-mailed top aide Huma Abedin regarding a redacted 2011 message marked sensitive but unclassified.

In a classified 2012 e-mail dealing with the new president of Malawi, another Clinton aide, Monica Hanley, advised Clinton, “We can ask Marina to print this.”…

Clinton ‘Charity’ Money Used To Finance Chelsea’s Wedding – Arutz Sheva

According to a newly publicized email sent by aide to the former president and co-founder of the Clinton Global Initiative Doug Band, Chelsea Clinton was allegedly paid by the Clinton Foundation to campaign, presumably on behalf of her mother’s bid for the White House.

Alzheimer’s Treatment Within Reach After Successful Drug Trial – The Guardian

An Alzheimer’s drug has been shown to successfully target the most visible sign of the disease in the brain, raising hopes that an effective treatment could be finally within reach.

A small trial of the drug was primarily aimed at assessing safety, but the findings suggest it effectively “switched off” the production of toxic amyloid proteins that lead to the sticky plaques seen in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients.

If the tablet, produced by pharmaceutical giant Merck, is also shown to slow the pace of mental decline – a crucial question that a major clinical trial should answer when it reports next year – it could be the first treatment for Alzheimer’s to be licensed in more than a decade.

Prof John Hardy, a neuroscientist at UCL who first proposed that amyloid proteins play a central role in Alzheimer’s disease, welcomed the results. “People are excited,” he said. “This is a very nice drug and I’m sure Merck are feeling very pleased with themselves.”

Matt Kennedy, who led the trial at Merck, said: “Today there are very limited therapeutic options available for people with Alzheimer’s disease, and those that exist provide only short-term improvement to the cognitive and functional symptoms. They do not directly target the underlying disease processes. There is an urgent need for [these].”

The new therapy is designed to do this by halting the steady production of amyloid-beta proteins, which are known to clump together in sticky plaques in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients. A leading theory of Alzheimer’s is that the accumulating proteins kill off healthy neurons, eventually leading to memory loss, cognitive decline and changes to personality…

East Texas Child Murdered By Previously Deported Illegal Alien – Breitbart

Law enforcement officials in East Texas are reporting the alleged murderer of 10-year-old Kayla Gomez-Orozco is a previously deported illegal alien from Mexico.

Officials with the Smith County jail confirmed to Breitbart Texas that Gustavo Gonzalez, 24, is currently being held in the jail on an immigration detainer from Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers. Gonzalez was also confirmed to be a Mexican national by the jail official.

East Texas Matters reporter Michael Wesp reported an unnamed law enforcement official claimed that Gonzalez was previously deported in 2014 for a “violent crime.” Court records show that Gonzalez was arrested twice in 2014 on charges for assault causing bodily injury.

The previously deported criminal alien is also reported to be a family member of Kayla Gomez-Orozco, the young girl whose body was found on Saturday. The body of the young girl was found in a well at a home in Smith County Texas, according to Sheriff Larry Smith. Gonzalez was initially reported to be Kayla’s uncle, but family members later clarified that he is a “cousin who acted like an uncle to Kayla.”

Kayla disappeared on Tuesday following a church service at the Bullard First Assembly Church. Her body was found wearing the same clothes on Saturday night in a well near a family member’s house.

Virginia Governor Pardons 60,000 Felons, Enough To Swing Election – Daily Caller

Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe has granted voting rights to as many as 60,000 convicted felons just in time for them to register to vote, nearly five times more than previously reported and enough to win the state for his long-time friend, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

McAuliffe sought to allow all of Virginia’s estimated 200,000 felons to vote, but state courts said each individual felon’s circumstances must be weighed. To get around that, McAuliffe used a mechanical autopen to rapidly sign thousands of letters, as if he had personally reviewed them, even as his office was saying the total was 13,000.

Democrat Organization Raided In Pennsylvania On Suspicion Of Voter Registration Fraud – Independent Journal Review

A tradition of being a Democratic state isn’t the only thing that has the state of Pennsylvania feeling blue this week.

As reports of voter fraud continue to increase, FieldWorks LLC, a grassroots organization that manages both paid and volunteer employees nationwide for campaign and ballot initiatives, finds itself in hot water.

Earlier this week, state police raided an office in Delaware County after obtaining a warrant to collect documents, financial information and a list of employees. On Thursday, police raided a second office, this time in Philadelphia.

As stated on the warrant, investigators from the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s office suspect “tampering with public records or information,” although no charges have been filed against FieldWorks.

While Attorney General Bruce Beemer declined to discuss the case, he did say that most voter registration probes focus primarily on, “cutting corners when it comes to registering individuals or doing stuff to meet quotas.”

Ruthann Alexander, a former political canvasser for the Democratic political organization group, told The Philadelphia Inquirer:

“The manager told me and she told the room full of people that she didn’t really care how we got our quota.”

FieldWorks employees on site declined to discuss the issue. However, a statement released earlier in the week on behalf of the company stated that the firm has “zero tolerance for fraud,” and maintained that they would work with authorities to prosecute anyone involved in the wrongdoing…

The Clinton Foundation’s $20 Million Off-The-Books Mystery – New York Post

The inner workings of a mysterious off-the-books arm of the Clinton Foundation were partially revealed in the hacked emails of Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.

The little-known Haiti Development Fund, an LLC incorporated in Delaware in August 2010, was created by the Clinton Foundation with an initial endowment of $20 million from shady Canadian mining mogul Frank Giustra and Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim.

The Fund was supposed to supply desperately needed seed money to Haitian entrepreneurs after an earthquake devastated the country in January 2010.

But The Post found only one project that it funded with a fraction of the start-up cash.

Since the Fund is incorporated as a private entity and not a non-profit, it is not subject to the same disclosure rules as a public charity.

And the Clinton Foundation never disclosed the Fund as a “related entity” on its tax filings as required by IRS rules. It was only after the Clinton Foundation, under mounting scrutiny and media pressure, “voluntarily” decided to refile five years’ worth of tax returns in 2015 that the Fund appears on the forms.

The for-profit Fund was managed by Jean Marc Villain, who was going through a bankruptcy in 2010 when he was working for the Clinton Foundation. The non-profit paid him an annual salary of $100,000 to oversee the Fund, according to pay records attached to the Podesta emails.

The Florida Elections Commission found that Villain also had violated state laws in 2001 when he did not file donation reports for the Haitian-American Political Caucus, a political committee where he was listed as treasurer…

Leaked Clinton Foundation “Smoking Gun” Memo Reveals It Was Breaking The Law – Zero Hedge

While there are conflicting reports whether the FBI may or may not indict the Clinton Foundation, which as the WSJ reported last week is being investigated by various FBI teams, even as other parts of the Bureau – and the DOJ – seek to squash the probe, the latest dump of Podesta emails has revealed a critical, confidential memo from prominent New York lawyer Kumiki Gibson to Clinton Foundation Chairman Bruce Lindsey (and former Bill Clinton attorney) which was performed as part of an inside audit of the foundation, and confirms that the charitable organization (which it found “operates more like a political operation”) was engaged in practices that broke the law.

As Gibson, who according to her resume “counseled the William J. Clinton Foundation, an international not-for-profit organization, on structural, legal, and compliance issues” from May 2008 until January 2014, wrote the purpose of the confidential November 10, 2008 memo, was to “set forth the findings of my review of the Legal and Human Resources Departments of the William J. Clinton Foundation (“Foundation”) and those pertaining to other areas of the Foundation revealed during this review, and my recommendations to the Foundation based on this review.”

The summary reveals serious reservations about the viability of the foundation – which “operates more like a political operation” than a “professional, strategic, and sustainable corporation committed to advancing its overall mission” – if and when Bill Clinton were to depart and “the Foundation has to rise and/or fall on its own name and work only.”…

Hacked Virginia Road Sign Calls Hillary A ‘Bitch’, Says ‘Vote Trump’ – WJLA

Police say someone changed the text of a road sign to a message insulting Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and encouraging voters to back Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

The electronic sign, located in Prince William County, flashed three messages. The first read: “CROOKED HILARY (sic),” followed by “IS A BITCH” and ending with “VOTE TRUMP.”

Police say the sign was initially placed at the Tackett’s Mill commuter lot near an elections office to encourage people to vote.

Commuter Kenneth Acoff noticed the sign when he entered the lot on Tuesday.

“The message was inappropriate, given that it declared support for a specific candidate, while using an offensive and indecent word for their opposition,” Acoff said.

“We all were shocked when we got off the bus,” said commuter Eleanor Thompson. “[It was] very unpleasant, and very nasty.”

The rented sign was one of a number of signs the Prince William County Office of Elections had arranged to have placed throughout the county. Until it was tampered with, the sign had flashed messages with information about absentee voting.

A box holding a computer on the side of the rented sign appears to have been left unlocked. That seems to be how the message was tampered with.

A group of commuters tell ABC7 they came together after seeing the vulgar word on the sign to try to get rid of it.

“All I did was hit ‘blank sign,’” said Adrienne Castro, who said she figured out how to operate the sign’s computer on the fly. “And I’m not a techie person, I have to be very honest with you.”…

Australia Legalizes The Cultivation Of Medical Marijuana – Your News Wire

Australia is to allow individuals and business’s to cultivate medicinal cannabis crops under strict government license and guidelines in an effort to substitute imports with a domestic supply.

The recreational use of marijuana will however remains a criminal activity.

RT reports:

The commencement of the Narcotic Drugs Amendment Act 2016 on October 30, 2016, marks a milestone for Australia’s medicinal cannabis prospects. The new regulations allow for the licensing of cannabis cultivation and the production of cannabis and cannabis resins for medicinal and scientific purposes.

Until now, it has been difficult for patients to access medicinal cannabis products from overseas sources,” Federal Health Minister Sussan Ley said in a statement released on Sunday.

“These new laws change that situation by providing for a domestic supply of medicinal cannabis products that are not readily available for import.”

However, while pharmaceuticals will gain an advantage from the new law, recreational pot smokers are left disappointed, as consuming marijuana still remains a criminal activity.

“I want to emphasize that the changes to the Narcotic Drugs Act do not decriminalize cannabis for recreational use,” Ley said.

Under the act, those companies ready to grow their weed plants must comply with state and territory drug legislations which would allow companies to classify their harvest in accordance with the Therapeutic Goods Administration…

The flood of illegal aliens pouring across the southern border has become a “crisis situation” and is even worse than the record 2014 border surge, says an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officer from El Paso, Texas with more than ten years of service to the agency.

The ICE agency has no room to house the arriving surge, so many illegals are being released into American communities where they disappear “into the wind never to be seen by us again,” the agent said.

The agent – who spoke to Breitbart News exclusively on the condition of anonymity for fear of retaliation by the administration – detailed how his overrun agency has been forced to pull agents from their mission of removing criminal aliens from the nation’s interior, so that they can help process the cross-border influx of illegal aliens.

The illegal aliens, mostly from Central America, are using President Barack Obama’s policies to request asylum, work permits and green cards. Whereas unlawful aliens traditionally sought to evade border agents in hopes of reaching U.S. cities where they could illegally fill American jobs, reports document how many of these new migrants are now turning themselves in to border patrol agents believing they’ll be allowed to stay permanently. This 2016 influx of migrants from Central America had exceeded 117,000 by Oct. 1, marking a new record, Breitbart News reported.

Many additional thousands of illegal aliens continue to pour across the border via smuggling routes that try to bypass the border patrol. In the 12 months up to October 2016, 271,000 illegal immigrants were caught trying to sneak across the border – but many others escaped arrest and made their way to U.S. workplaces and cities…

Obama DOJ Tried Repeatedly To Kill FBI’s Clinton Foundation Investigation – Daily Caller
.

.
Senior-level Justice Department officials pushed back heavily on an ongoing FBI investigation of the Clinton Foundation, according to a bombshell report from The Wall Street Journal.

The newspaper laid out numerous examples, based on law enforcement sources, of senior DOJ officials intervening to quash the probe.

Prosecutors with the U.S. attorneys office in the Eastern District of New York – which Loretta Lynch led before taking over as attorney general last year – refused to allow FBI investigators probing the Clinton family charity to review emails found on devices turned over this year by two of Clinton’s lawyers during the separate investigation into the mishandling of classified information on Clinton’s private email system.

The rationale, according to The Journal, was that the devices were covered by partial immunity and limited-use agreements that the Clinton lawyers – Cheryl Mills and Heather Samuelson – agreed to with the DOJ…

Hillary’s Campaign Manager Admits She Lied About FBI Letter Being Sent Only To Republicans – Washington Free Beacon

Hillary Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook admitted on Fox News Sunday that Clinton lied when she claimed FBI Director James Comey’s letter about the reopening of its probe into her private server was sent solely to House Republicans.

Comey’s stunning letter Friday stated that “pertinent” emails regarding the private server investigation surfaced during a separate inquiry. Later reporting revealed that separate investigation was into former congressman Anthony Weiner’s sexting with a 15-year-old girl. Weiner is the estranged husband of top Clinton aide Huma Abedin.

Comey sent his letter to Republican House committee chairmen but it was also carbon-copied to leading Democrats on those committees. However, Clinton said it was sent originally just to Republicans, suggesting Comey’s actions were partisan.

“If they’re going to be sending this kind of letter that is only going originally to Republican members of the House, that they need to share whatever facts they claim to have with the American people,” she said on Friday.

“Robby, why would she say something that is so flatly untrue?” Fox host Chris Wallace asked. He brandished a copy of the letter and showed on the back that the eight top Democrats on the House committees also received it.

“Chris, this has been really overhyped,” Mook said.

“Well, she said it. I didn’t,” Wallace said.

“We were all surprised by this letter,” Mook said. “She looked at the front page, and as you just said yourself, on the front page of that memo, it lists those Republican chairs. Were the Democrats cc-ed at the end of the letter? Absolutely. She looked at the front page of the letter. She has acknowledged, we all acknowledge this was sent to everybody.”…

German Intelligence Service Concerned After Migrant Camp Is Built Next To Radical Mosque – Breitbart

A new report from Germany has revealed how an asylum home was built in close proximity to a known Islamist mosque, and it is often now frequented by the residents.

An asylum home in Frankfurt is gaining attention in German media after it was reported that the migrants who live there are mere footsteps away from a mosque that has ties to radical Islamic groups and potential Islamic state recruiters, German broadcaster HR1 reports.

The asylum home in the Enkheim district of Frankfurt is home to 74 male migrants, 14 of whom are underage, and the majority are Muslims.

While a small handful of the asylum seekers in the Enkheim asylum home visit a nearby Church to pray, the majority visit the Abu Hanifa Mosque, which also serves as an Afghan cultural association. According to the domestic intelligence service in the German state of Hessen, the mosque is a hotbed for radical Islamic activity.

The intelligence service believes many Muslims who lived within the vicinity of the mosque have gone to fight for radical Islamic groups in Syria.

The state security police in Frankfurt allege the Abu Hanifa Mosque is also home to recruiters of the Islamic State terror group. They claim that many of the visitors to the mosque do not recognize the validity of the German constitution, likely wanting Islamic Sharia law to rule over Germany.

The mosque is led by Imam Said Khobaib Sadat, who has claimed to have distanced himself from the Islamic state, but some say he still tolerates the presence of ISIS recruiters in the mosque…

Podesta Part 24: Wikileaks Releases Another 2,620 Emails; Total Is Now 39,511 – Zero Hedge

In the aftermath of one of the most memorable October shocks in presidential campaign history, and down the final stretch in the presidential race which has just over one week left, Wikileaks continues its ongoing broadside attack against the Clinton campaign with the relentless Podesta dump, by unveiling another 2,620 emails in the latest, Part 24 of its Podesta release, bringing the total emails released so far to exactly 39,511.

Towns Collapse After Strongest Quake In 35 Years Strikes Italy – Zero Hedge

On Wednesday, when we reported on the latest set of powerful, shallow quakes to strike central Italy, which themselves were aftershocks of the deadly August 24 earthquake which killed 300 people and injured many more, we quoted Salvatore Mazza, the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology who said that “The earthquake today has further disrupted the tectonic plates, and in the coming hours we may see aftershocks of today’s earthquake on top of those from August 24”, and concluded that it is likely that more quakes are coming.

We didn’t have long to wait, and overnight central Italy was hit by another powerful earthquake Sunday, toppling buildings that had recently withstood other major quakes and sending panicked residents back into the streets, but luckily causing no immediate loss of life. That there were no reports of deaths was largely due to the fact that thousands of residents left their homes after two strong jolts last week shook the same mountainous area.

As AP reports, the quake with a preliminary magnitude of 6.6 was the strongest to strike the country in nearly 36 years.

Some 20 people were injured, many lightly, authorities said.

The Apennine Mountain region of central Italy, located along a major fault line, has been the site of dozens of significant earthquakes, including an Aug. 24 quake with a 6.1 magnitude that killed nearly 300 people. Back-to-back jolts on Wednesday left thousands more people homeless, but the only death reported resulted from a heart attack.

Closest to the epicenter was the ancient city of Norcia, the birthplace of St. Benedict, the father of monasticism and famed for its Benedictine monastery. Witnesses said the 14th Century St. Benedict cathedral collapsed in the quake, with only the facade still standing…

‘Pay To Slay’: Hillary Link To Baby Body-Parts Biz Revealed – WorldNetDaily

It’s a new bombshell in the scandal that horrified Americans as they learned unborn babies had their body parts harvested and sold around the world: the discovery that Hillary Clinton’s State Department granted favorable treatment to a family involved in the harvesting.

The federal agency expedited the immigration of the Isaias family, whose ownership of the DaVinci Biosciences and DV Biologics companies made headlines again recently when the district attorney in Orange County brought a criminal lawsuit against them.

The baby body-parts trade was highlighted in 2015 in a series of hidden-camera videos produced by the Center for Medical Progress, or CMP.

CMP said that for eight years, Planned Parenthood “supplied aborted baby hearts, lungs, brains, and intestines to DV Biologics, which DV Biologics then resold for profit.”

“In exchange for merely providing access to aborted baby body parts, Planned Parenthood received kickback contributions from DaVinci Biosciences over the course of their eight-year contract,” CMP said.

“The wheels of justice are beginning to turn against Planned Parenthood and their corrupt business partners in the illicit trade in aborted baby body parts. Planned Parenthood is not above the law, and law enforcement and elected representatives everywhere must now hold Planned Parenthood accountable for their barbaric profiteering off of pregnant women and the body parts of their aborted children.”

Kristan Hawkins of Students for Life of America said the Orange County district attorney “should be commended for suing Planned Parenthood’s business partners…

Hillary Goes All Crazy-Eyed Again At Daytona Beach Rally – American Thinker

The mainstream media have decided that the brain injuries causing Hillary Clinton’s eyes to move out of sync with each other are a non-issue. The problem is literally staring us in the face as time and again, Hillary starts to go crazy-eyes on us speaking from a podium.

Dr. Brian Joondeph, a retina surgeon, explains what probably is going on:

Eye movement is controlled by six muscles attached to each eye, allowing eyes to move up, down, diagonally, and rotationally. These muscles are in turn controlled by a combination of three cranial nerves originating in brain stem, an area between the brain and spinal cord, then travelling upward to the eyes…

Manure Load Dumped At Democrat Headquarters In Warren County, Ohio – Cincinnati Enquirer

A load of manure was dumped outside the Democratic Party headquarters in Warren County.

“What reasonable person thinks this is OK????” party chair Bethe Goldenfield said in a post in the Greater Cincinnati Politics Facebook Group. “I won’t be responding to anyone who thinks this is acceptable behavior. It is ILLEGAL!”

The same thing happened in 2012, Goldenfield noted. The suburban Cincinnati county is overwhelmingly Republican; Mitt Romney got 69 percent of the vote four years ago. It’s been almost 40 years since a Democrat was elected to countywide office.

Goldenfield told The Enquirer the Warren County Sheriff’s Office called her around 7:45 a.m. Saturday alerting her to the manure pile outside the Lebanon building. Deputies met party officials later to review video.

“Hopefully the perps will be held accountable for their actions,” she said.

Jeff Monroe, chairman of the Warren County Republican Party, said the GOP had nothing to do with the manure “and has offered to help clean things up.”

The Warren County Sheriff’s office had no additional information. Goldenfield said the party hired a contractor to remove the pile.

There have been other incidents of party headquarter vandalism nationwide, to both parties. In North Carolina, someone firebombed the Orange County GOP headquarters. Earlier this month someone tossed a brick through the window of an Indiana Republican Party office…

Here’s How Hackers Stole 50,000 Of John Podesta’s Emails – New York Post

.New evidence appears to show how hackers earlier this year stole more than 50,000 emails of Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, an audacious electronic attack blamed on Russia’s government and one that has resulted in embarrassing political disclosures about Democrats in the final weeks before the U.S. presidential election.

The hackers sent John Podesta an official-looking email on Saturday, March 19, that appeared to come from Google. It warned that someone in Ukraine had obtained Podesta’s personal Gmail password and tried unsuccessfully to log in, and it directed him to a website where he should “change your password immediately.”

Podesta’s chief of staff, Sara Latham, forwarded the email to the operations help desk of Clinton’s campaign, where staffer Charles Delavan in Brooklyn, New York, wrote back 25 minutes later, “This is a legitimate email. John needs to change his password immediately.”

But the email was not authentic.

The link to the website where Podesta was encouraged to change his Gmail password actually directed him instead to a computer in the Netherlands with a web address associated with Tokelau, a territory of New Zealand located in the South Pacific. The hackers carefully disguised the link using a service that shortens lengthy online addresses. But even for anyone checking more diligently, the address – “google.com-securitysettingpage” – was crafted to appear genuine.

In the email, the hackers even provided an Internet address of the purported Ukrainian hacker that actually traced to a mobile communications provider in Ukraine. It was also notable that the hackers struck Podesta on a weekend morning, when organizations typically have fewer resources to investigate and respond to reports of such problems…

Megyn Kelly To Be Replaced On Fox News By Judge Jeanine Pirro – Spinzon

Fox News is planning to replace Megyn Kelly with Justice Jeanine Pirro due to sagging ratings and an epic fail to bolster them with an attempt to take down Newt Gingrich.

As the most recent viewership numbers show, Kelly’s program indicates a decided downward shift from Bill O’Reilly’s lead-in program, and then, even more damning for Kelly, is how the ratings jump back up for the Sean Hannity program, even though Hannity should, given the later time slot, have the smaller audience.

It would appear that stance took a considerable toll on Kelly’s ratings.

Report: Justice Department Extorts Companies To Fund Left-Wing Activists – Breitbart

A new report from the Government Accountability Institute (GAI) concludes that the Obama administration’s Department of Justice has been extorting fines from major banks, which are then used to fund leftist groups that push the Democratic vote.

The report notes that while community organizing groups have been using aggressive, “terrorist” tactics for decades to force banks to provide funding for their operations, the Obama administration has brought the power of the federal government to bear on their behalf. Banks are threatened with lawsuits for racial discrimination based on the controversial “disparate impact” theory, and offered incentives to settle by paying left-wing groups directly, beyond the review or oversight of Congress.

The result, the GAI report says, is a system of political patronage:

The old time political machine has been replaced by these nonprofits and a system of patronage now operates with the imprimatur of the DOJ. The DOJ has instituted a system that provides significant funding for nonprofit “community organizers” through a pattern of extortive lawsuits. This system, wherein appointed attorneys can legally extract money from the private sector and redistribute the funds to third-party organizations outside of the appropriations process, shows an unprecedented and extraordinary disregard for Congressional authority.

Left-wing groups have long used the Community Reinvestment Act – signed by President Jimmy Carter in 1977 and boosted by President Bill Clinton in the 1990s – to threaten bank mergers unless the banks fund their lending and activist operations…

New Podesta Email Exposes Playbook For Rigging Polls Through “Oversamples” – Zero Hedge

Earlier this morning we wrote about the obvious sampling bias in the latest ABC / Washington Post poll that showed a 12-point national advantage for Hillary. Like many of the recent polls from Reuters, ABC and The Washington Post, this latest poll included a 9-point sampling bias toward registered democrats.

“METHODOLOGY – This ABC News poll was conducted by landline and cellular telephone Oct. 20-22, 2016, in English and Spanish, among a random national sample of 874 likely voters. Results have a margin of sampling error of 3.5 points, including the design effect. Partisan divisions are 36-27-31 percent, Democrats – Republicans – Independents.”

Of course, while democrats may enjoy a slight registration advantage of a couple of points, it is nowhere near the 9 points reflected in this latest poll.

Meanwhile, we also pointed out that with huge variances in preference across demographics one can easily “rig” a poll by over indexing to one group vs. another. As a quick example, the ABC / WaPo poll found that Hillary enjoys a 79-point advantage over Trump with black voters. Therefore, even a small “oversample” of black voters of 5% could swing the overall poll by 3 full points. Moreover, the pollsters don’t provide data on the demographic mix of their polls which makes it impossible to “fact check” the bias… convenient.

Now, for all of you out there who still aren’t convinced that the polls are “adjusted”, we present to you the following Podesta email, leaked earlier today, that conveniently spells out, in detail, exactly how to “manufacture” the desired data…

Hillary Clinton Had Gun-Control Supporters Planted In Town Hall Audience – Breitbart

One of the emails contained in the Wikileaks’ Podesta email release shows that Hillary Clinton had gun control supporters planted in a town hall audience in Manchester, New Hampshire.

The town hall occurred on October 5, 2015; just four days after a man opened fire on Umpqua Community College campus in Oregon.

In the email thread, dated October 4, 2015, a “speech draft” was passed around “on behalf of Megan Rooney.” The email contained “talking points” for Clinton to use to discuss guns in Manchester.

The first part of the email reminded other campaign staffers that the town hall had no specific focus, although gun control would be highlighted:

Here are short TPs about guns for the NH community college town hall >>> tomorrow. This is not a town hall exclusively about gun violence – it’s just a >>> regular town hall.

The email then turned, reminding everyone that there would be gun control plants at the town hall; that those plants would be from various gun control groups:

But the person who will introduce [Clinton] will tell a story >>> about gun violence in her life, and there will be people in the audience >>> from gun violence orgs.

The Manchester town hall was held at Manchester Community College. And the talking points advised Clinton to begin by saying, “We’ve seen yet another mass murder – this time, in a community college in Oregon that’s probably a lot like this one.”….

Venezuela Braces For Revolution After Maduro Blocks Recall Referendum – Zero Hedge

Once a “flagship socialist nation,” Venezuela has suffered over the past couple of years from a dramatic economic crisis that has resulted in severe shortages of food, clean water, electricity, medicines and hospital supplies all of which have resulted in a desperate population which has resorted to the black market and violence for survival.

That said, Venezuela likely inched one step closer to revolution on Friday when Maduro’s leftist government took steps to block a recall referendum that could have resulted in his ouster. According to the US News and World Report, Venezuelan opposition leaders are calling the efforts of Maduro “a coup” in light of the broad based public support of the recall effort.

Venezuela is bracing for turbulence after the socialist government blocked a presidential recall referendum in a move opposition leaders are calling a coup.

The opposition is urging supporters to take to the streets, beginning with a march on a major highway Saturday led by the wives of jailed activists, while a leading government figure is calling for the arrest of high-profile government critics.

Polls suggest socialist President Nicolas Maduro would lose a recall vote. But that became a moot issue on Thursday when elections officials issued an order suspending a recall signature drive a week before it was to start.

Former Prosecutor: The Clintons Are So Corrupt, Everything They Touch Turns To Molten Lead – Daily Caller

Pithy former federal prosecutor Joe diGenova believes the recent Project Veritas video by James O’Keefe featuring DNC contractors explaining their dirty practices to foment violence at Trump events, is a prima facie case of federal and state criminal activity.

DiGenova says prosecutors should investigate everyone in the video, including Illinois Democrat Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky’s husband, Bob Creamer, who suddenly retired last week.

In this exclusive 26-minute video interview for The Daily Caller News Foundation, diGenova explains why many former and current FBI officials believe James Comey, the director of the FBI, is a “dirty cop.” When Comey refused to recommend prosecution of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton for her misuse of classified government information in July after “a fake and sophomoric” investigation, he bred cynicism and tainted the premier law enforcement agency.

When Republican nominee Donald Trump responds to calls from citizens to “lock her up,” the former prosecutor believes President Barack Obama’s Department of Justice “created a double standard for justice – one for the Clintons and one for the little guy.”

DiGenova suggests that the Republican Congress pass a “resolution of no confidence” on the FBI director as soon as they return to Washington after the election to demonstrate the significance of Comey’s corrosive, political decision.

DiGenova first laughs when asked about the charges by Democrats that the Russians are influencing American elections. He says, “the notion that the Russians are influencing this election is ludicrous. [Julian] Assange is a vessel…

Former Fox And CBS News Anchor Gets New Job As Gay Porn Star – Daily Mail

For more than two decades Jim Walker was a clean-cut anchor who read the news on Fox, NBC and CBS.

He was nominated for two regional Emmys and became known for his calm and authoritative delivery of the news.

But after 23 years he left that all behind him to embark on a completely different career – reinventing himself as Dallas Steele, a gay porn actor with dozens of blue movies to his name.

The 44-year-old said he turned his back on the news networks because of the immense pressure to get ratings.

He has had implants in his backside, which he said were paid for by an escort client, and says he has no regrets.

In an interview, he said: ‘I’m much more successful in every measure than I ever was before.’

Walker told a website: ‘I left the business in 2013 after my boss in Southwest Florida told me that research had shown “people here just don’t like you”.

Judge Jeanine Schools Geraldo On Project Veritas Videos: “I Could Indict Them In 3 Seconds” – Western Journalism

If the Justice Department isn’t interested, there’s always justice with Judge Jeanine.

Judge Jeanine Pirro, the former prosecutor turned Fox News host, took over a “Fox & Friends” segment on Friday to slam the Obama-Era Justice Department, and make it clear that undercover videos released this week were strong enough evidence to bring a criminal case against the Democrat operatives who appear in them.

Even if the Justice Department doesn’t see fit to launch a probe.

The videos released by guerilla videographer James O’Keefe and his Project Veritas organization show Democrat agents and operatives openly admitting to being behind some of the most headline-grabbing incidents of the presidential election. They include the riot that shut down a planned Trump campaign rally in Chicago in March as well as violent episodes at other of the GOP nominee’s events.

So far, the videos’ impact has been limited to the political and public relations aspect of their release, but there could well be legal ramifications.

According to WITI in Green Bay, Wisconsin Attorney General Brad Schimel is reviewing the videos because they involved prominent Madison, Wisconsin, operative Scott Foval potentially violating Badger State law.

.
After the first debate, numerous videos surfaced alleging that Hillary was using some sort of teleprompter built into her podium to assist with answering questions or to offset whatever medical condition she’s dealing with. The videos were largely dismissed as “cooky alt-right conspiracy theories” and didn’t get much attention outside of those spheres.

But, when similar abnormalities surfaced on Hillary’s podium in the third debate, combined with the fact that she spent an awkward amount of time during her answers peering down rather than at the camera, we grew a bit more curious.

With that said, here is a video analyzing the abnormalities from debate 1. Notice that around 18 seconds into this video one can very clearly see a light shut off on Hillary’s podium even though there is no such light at Trump’s podium…

Facebook Employees Pushed To Remove Trump’s Posts As Hate Speech – Wall Street Journal

Some of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s posts on Facebook have set off an intense debate inside the social media company over the past year, with some employees arguing certain posts about banning Muslims from entering the U.S. should be removed for violating the site’s rules on hate speech, according to people familiar with the matter.

The decision to allow Mr. Trump’s posts went all the way to Facebook Inc. Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg, who ruled in December that it would be inappropriate to censor the candidate, according to the people familiar with the matter. That decision has prompted employees across the company to complain on Facebook’s internal messaging service and in person to Mr. Zuckerberg and other managers that it was bending the site’s rules for Mr. Trump, and some employees who work in a group charged with reviewing content on Facebook threatened to quit, the people said.

“Facebook has never contacted us about employee complaints and has never removed a post,” a spokeswoman for Mr. Trump’s campaign said. “We are not concerned about the liberal Clinton elites who are so intolerant of conservative ideas that they would seek to censor the Trump campaign’s enormously successful Facebook engagement.”

In a statement provided Wednesday evening, a Facebook spokeswoman said its reviewers consider the context of a post when assessing whether to take it down. “That context can include the value of political discourse,” she said. “Many people are voicing opinions about this particular content and it has become an important part of the conversation around who the next U.S. president will be.”…

New FBI Files Contain Allegations Of ‘Quid Pro Quo’ In Hillary’s Emails – Fox News
.

.
FBI interview summaries and notes, provided late Friday to the House Government Oversight and Intelligence Committees, contain allegations of a “quid pro quo” between a senior State Department executive and FBI agents during the Hillary Clinton email investigation, two congressional sources told Fox News.

“This is a flashing red light of potential criminality,” Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz of Utah, who has been briefed on the FBI interviews, told Fox News.

He said “there was an alleged quid pro quo” involving Undersecretary for Management Patrick Kennedy and the FBI “over at least one classified email.”

“In return for altering the classification, the possibility of additional slots for the FBI at missions overseas was discussed,” Chaffetz said…

Clinton Crime Cover-Up: CNN Host Claims It’s Illegal For Public To Read WikiLeaks Emails – Daily Caller

CNN’s Chris Cuomo told viewers it is illegal for them to possess emails leaked by the website WikiLeaks, and as a result they could not read them and had to rely entirely on the media to learn about their content.

Cuomo’s comments were made early Wednesday morning, but they attracted no attention until a clip was uploaded to YouTube Sunday morning.

In the clip, Cuomo opens a segment on leaked emails from Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s inbox by warning viewers they have to get all their information about the emails from the media, and nowhere else. If they try to check out the emails themselves, Cuomo warns, they’re breaking the law.

“Also interesting is, remember, it’s illegal to possess these stolen documents,” Cuomo says. “It’s different for the media, so everything you’re learning about this, you’re learning from us.”

Cuomo’s claim is faulty on a few counts. While the government might potentially prosecute somebody purely for the act of downloading stolen documents, legal experts are divided on whether such a prosecution would be constitutional. Even if downloading the emails were illegal, that is totally irrelevant in this case, because nobody has to download the WikiLeaks emails in order to read them. They’re all freely available to read on a website anybody can access.

Whatever the legal status of downloading the emails, there is absolutely no restriction on simply reading them, despite what Cuomo implies…

Clinton Campaign Chairman: I’m Okay With Taking Money From Foreign Agents – American Thinker
.

.
Sunday’s Wikileaks dump includes an email discussion within the Hillary Clinton campaign about whether they should continue to take money from people who were registered with the U.S. government as foreign government agents under the Foreign Agents Registration Act.

At first, on April 15, high-level campaign officials met by telephone and made the honorable decision to not take money from foreign government agents, but, as Hillary’s National Finance Director Dennis Cheng wrote, when he reopened the decision later that same day, “we are leaving a good amount of money on the table.”

The final decision appeared to have been made on April 16. Clinton’s campaign manager Robby Mook put it, “I’m ok just taking the money and dealing with any attacks.” The next day, Clinton’s communications director Jennifer Palmieri summarized the decision in three words and two exclamation points: “Take the money!!”…

Judicial Watch Hits FBI With FOIA Request To Produce Backup Device Containing Hillary’s Emails – Breitbart

A backup data device containing Hillary Clinton’s emails exists in the FBI’s possession. The FBI is now challenged to produce the long forgotten device.

The FBI received a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request “VIA CERTIFIED MAIL” Wednesday from Judicial Watch.

The existence of this device is generating behind-the-scenes frenzy in the Beltway as the FBI continues to get hammered over its investigation of the Clinton email scandal. FBI director James Comey conducted an investigation based on small partial email discoveries here and there. The fact that the FBI did not look at all of her emails actually helped Clinton to avoid prosecution. What if the FBI had considered all the emails that were just released by Wikileaks, instead of just the emails that Comey found in small batches of 30? Could that have changed the result and led to a prosecution?

The Judicial Watch FOIA request aims for Clinton’s “Datto device.”

The FOIA request asks for:

Any and all records, including but not limited to emails or text messages (SMSs, MMSs, BBMs, iMessages, etc.), discovered, recovered, retrieved from, or found on any Datto device.

Any and all records concerning or relating to the FBI’s efforts to discover, recover, retrieve, or find emails or text messages stored on the Datto device, equipment or hardware reference in Request No. 1.

What is a Datto device?

Breitbart News reported in October of last year:

Yesterday we learned that Hillary Clinton’s home-brew email server was using an online backup service called Datto, Inc. to create copies of her data – a hair-raising proposition, given that Clinton’s server improperly contained classified and Top Secret material, made even more alarming by the fact that Clinton’s computer company didn’t realize her machine was still communicating with Datto until shortly before they surrendered it to the FBI…

Political Terrorism: GOP Headquarters In Hillsborough, NC Firebombed – Charlotte Observer
.

.
The Orange County Republican Party headquarters was firebombed overnight Saturday and graffiti was spray-painted nearby in an attack that the GOP called “political terrorism.”

A flaming bottle was thrown through a window of the office and a swastika and “Nazi Republicans leave town or else” were painted in black on the side of an adjacent building, Hillsborough officials said in a news release.

The inside of the office, which contained campaign signs and other election materials, was blackened by soot, and broken glass littered the floor Sunday evening. Office equipment including a printer had melted.

The fire apparently put itself out, Hillsborough officials said.

News of the attack spread quickly, and presidential candidates of both major parties condemned it on social media…

Neurologist: Hillary’s Memory Lapses Present National Security Crisis – WorldNetDaily

A physician who believes Hillary Clinton is suffering a serious neurological disease that should disqualify her from being president suggests Hillary’s history of memory and recall difficulties, dating back to the 1990s and the Whitewater investigations, represent a serious threat to national security should she be elected president on Nov. 8.

“Either Hillary Clinton is suffering massive memory and recall dysfunction in which case her being president could represent a serious national security problem, or she is lying to Congress and various investigative bodies, including the FBI, as a strategy to avoid making self-incriminating statements, and that’s a federal felony,” said Dr. Daniel Kassicieh, D.O., a dual board-certified osteopathic neurologist and a leading headache specialist who directs the Florida Headache and Movement Disorder Center in Sarasota, Florida.

Speaking to WND by telephone, Kassicieh pointed out that Hillary’s memory loss was first evident during a press conference on Whitewater dating back to April 22, 1994.

“On at least five separate occasions during this 25 minute interview, Hillary states she does not remember or has ‘absolutely no memory of’ details about which she was questioned,” Kassicieh noted.

On Feb. 3, WND reported Washington-based watchdog Judicial Watch released 246 pages of previously undisclosed internal memos from Ken Starr’s Office of Independent Counsel investigation in 1998 showing prosecutors had evidence that Hillary Clinton and her associate Webb Hubbell at the Rose Law Firm in Little Rock, Arkansas, were guilty of criminal fraud in the Whitewater affair.

Judicial Watch noted the newly released documents also show Clinton and Hubbell engaged in a criminal cover-up conspiracy that included destroying material documents and lying under oath to federal authorities…

Felon Hillary: People Who Oppose Immigration Are ‘Un-American’ – Daily Caller
.

.
Hillary Clinton got paid $675,000 to give three speeches to Goldman Sachs in 2013. In one of them, the Democratic presidential nominee described people opposed to immigration as “fundamentally un-American,” according to a transcript released by WikiLeaks.

Clinton was asked by an employee named Garrett during an October 2013 speech at the Ritz-Carlton Dove Mountain in Arizona, “How do we reframe what we talk about in terms of the good that America does in the world and bringing about the message of hope?”

After talking about the strong American character, using the response to 9/11 as an example, Clinton said, “So yes, we do have to get back to telling the American Story and telling it to ourselves first and foremost. That’s why immigration reform is so important. I mean, get immigration reform done you [sic]. It sends exactly the signal you’re talking about.”…

Gun-Controlled Chicago: At Least 19 Shot, 6 Killed Overnight – Breitbart

Chicago police report ‘at least 19 people were shot’ and six persons killed from Friday night to Saturday morning in gun-controlled Chicago.

The shootings and death continue a string of mayhem and bloodshed that has made 2016 one of the deadliest years in Chicago history.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, one person was killed and six others wounded in one shooting Friday night. That shooting occurred at 8:15 p.m. in East Garfield Park. Police reported that the victims “were standing together in the 3300 block of West Maypole when someone in a black vehicle going east opened fire.” Three of the wounded men were able to “[take] themselves to Mount Sinai Hospital in good condition with gunshot wounds to the arms and legs.” Two others – a man and woman – were injured and had to be transported to a hospital. The sixth wounded victim was only grazed with a bullet and “was treated, but not taken to a hospital.”

A seventh individual – “a male whose age was unknown” – was taken to the hospital and pronounced dead.

Approximately 15 minutes before the shooting on West Maypole, two men – ages 18 and 20 years old – “were standing by a parked car in the 5500 block of West Congress Parkway… when a gray car drove up and someone inside opened fire, hitting the younger man in the head and the older man repeatedly.” Both men were fatally wounded.

And the shootings continue and the death toll rises.

On October 11 Breitbart News reported that Chicago was approaching 600 homicides for the year. At that point, the Chicago Tribune reported the number of homicides was 578 and the number of shooting victims was 3,368. Homicides year-to-date are now well over 580 and the Tribune reports 3,424 shooting victims January 1 through October 15, 2016…

The U.S. Just Bombed Yemen, And No One’s Talking About It – The Guardian
.

.
What if the United States went to war and nobody here even noticed? The question is absurd, isn’t it? And yet, this almost perfectly describes what actually happened this past week.

While many Americans, myself included, were all hypnotized by the bizarre spectacle of the Republican nominee for president, a U.S. navy destroyer fired a barrage of cruise missiles at three radar sites controlled by the rebel Houthi movement in Yemen. This attack marked the first time the US has fought the rebels directly in Yemen’s devastating civil war.

The cruise missile salvo ramps up the already significant U.S. military involvement in deeply divided and desperately poor Yemen. While it’s true that the US has launched drone strikes on al-Qaida targets in Yemen for years, sometimes killing civilians and even US citizens, this particular military engagement has the potential to drag the U.S. straight into a protracted and escalating conflict…

Obvious Conflict Of Interest: Cheryl Mills Directed Clinton Foundation While Hillary’s Chief Of Staff At State Department – NLPC

While she was Hillary Clinton’s chief of staff at the State Department, Cheryl Mills also played a central role in the operation of the Clinton Foundation, in apparent violation of conflict of interest laws, and contrary to her sworn statements to congressional investigators.

That is the picture painted in emails to and from Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, released by Wikileaks in October. The hacked emails confirm earlier allegations, first made by NLPC, about Mills’ dual allegiances. The emails were first detailed in an October 12 Daily Mail story by Alana Goodman.

Serious Conflict

NLPC Chairman Ken Boehm told the Daily Mail, “The new revelations in the latest Wikileaks email disclosure prove Cheryl Mills worked extensively with the Clinton Foundation, their Board, President Clinton, and Chelsea Clinton while at the same time working in a role at the State Department that appears to have created a serious conflict of interest.”

According to the emails, Mills was the architect of a reorganization of the Clinton Foundation in 2012 after it was the subject of negative media attention. Mills also mapped out a new structure for a for-profit entity called Teneo, as well as Bill Clinton’s paid speech-making operation.

Double Dealing

Mills’ involvement in Bill’s speaking business is particularly striking because she was the State Department official designated to vet his speaking engagements for conflicts of interest.

The emails also confirm that Mills was not honest with congressional investigators preparing for hearings on the Benghazi episode. During an eight-hour deposition in September 2015, where Mills answered questions under oath, she was asked directly about the Clinton Foundation…

De Blasio Demands Resignation Of Elections Official Who Admitted That Democrat Policies Lead To Voter Fraud – New York Post

Mayor de Blasio on Friday demanded the resignation of a Board of Elections commissioner who said in an undercover video that the city’s municipal ID program is contributing to voter fraud at the polls.

“That’s crazy and what he said was entirely inappropriate and unfair and absolutely the reverse of what someone should be saying on the Board of Elections. He should really step down,” de Blasio said Friday on WNYC, referring to Manhattan Democratic Commissioner Alan Schulkin.

“He obviously does not have the world view and ethics to do that… if he is going to talk about, first of all, falsehoods, and second of all, ways that would ultimately exclude people.”

The mayor noted that the ID program was developed with the NYPD to protect against identify fraud…

The Collapse Of Obamacare In North Carolina Has Been Nothing Short Of Spectacular – Jazz Shaw

These stories are now becoming so common as to be the norm, but there’s yet another tale of the Obamacare exchanges essentially collapsing in North Carolina as we approach the next open enrollment period. Keep in mind that health insurance is still mandatory under law and the grace period for not facing a hefty penalty on your taxes for non-compliance is over. Also remember that if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor and the Affordable Care Act was going to reduce premiums. Oh, wait… it was going to at least keep them about the same. No? Well, at least they’ll rise more slowly.

Don’t tell that to consumers in the Tar Heel State. All but one of the previously available insurers have fled the exchange and the sole remaining participant – Blue Cross Blue Shield – almost left. They’re sticking around, but the already high premiums they charge will be jumping up by an additional 25%. (Washington Post)

More than 250,000 people in North Carolina are losing the health plans they bought under the Affordable Care Act because two of the three insurers are dropping out – a stark example of the disruption roiling marketplaces in many parts of the country.

The defections mean that almost all of the state, from the Blue Ridge to the Outer Banks, will have just one insurer selling ACA policies when the exchanges open again for business in November. The remaining company, Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina, agonized over whether to leave, too. Instead, it is raising its rates by nearly 25 percent.

In no other state will as many people find such limited choice. But what is happening to nearly a half-million North Carolinians epitomizes a national checkerboard of ACA haves and have-nots…

Treacherous RNC Spends ZERO Dollars On Trump Television Ads – Politico
.

.
The Republican National Committee insists that it’s doing everything in its power to elect Donald Trump, but as Trump gets clobbered on the TV airwaves by his well-funded Democratic rival, the RNC has been conspicuously absent.

A POLITICO analysis of campaign finance records reveals that the committee has not spent anything on commercials boosting Trump since he emerged as the party’s likely nominee.

That’s a stark departure from recent elections. In 2008 and 2012, the RNC spent tens of millions of dollars on so-called independent expenditures – principally TV ads, but also direct mail and phone banks – supporting its nominees or attacking their Democratic rivals.

The lack of air cover has prompted grumbling from Trump aides and allies, many of whom believe that the RNC was never fully supportive of their candidate and that it’s now turning its back completely on the anti-establishment nominee as his poll numbers crater…

Scenes From The Apocalypse: Mass Immigration Ruins The Streets Of France – Zero Hedge

The Paris you know or remember from adverts or brochures no longer exists. While no part of Paris looks like the romantic Cliches in Hollywood movies, some districts now resemble post-apocalyptic scenes of a dystopian thriller. This footage, taken with a hidden camera by an anonymous Frenchman in the Avenue de Flandres, 19th Arrondissement, near the Stalingrad Metro Station in Paris as well as areas in close proximity, shows the devastating effects of uncontrolled illegal mass immigration of young African males into Europe.

If it weren’t for the somewhat working infrastructure, the scene might as well have been the setting of movie shooting – or a slum in Mogadishu. The streets are littered in garbage, the sidewalks are blocked with trash, junk and mattresses, thousands of African men claim the streets as their own – they sleep and live in tents like homeless people.

If no portable toilets are in reach, open urination and defecation are commonplace. Tens of thousands of homeless Illegal immigrants, undocumented or waiting for a decision of their asylum application, waste away trying to pass the time in the city. Although their prospects of being granted asylum as Africans are bleak, they’re hoping for a decision that would grant them an apartment, welfare and make France their new home.

The conditions are absolutely devastating. The police have given up trying to control these areas, the remaining French people avoid the areas at all cost, crime and rape is rampant, just recently mass brawls and riots made the news as fights broke out near the Stalingrad metro station.

If current trends continue and the French become minority in their own capital in even more areas, scenes like this might spread to areas frequented by tourists, forever changing the last romantic parts of Paris that match what most people have in mind when they think of the iconic city…
