Trump-Authorized Strike Obliterates Base In Somalia Used To Train Terrorists – Daily Caller

The U.S. has launched its first devastating air strike Sunday against al-Qaida-affiliated militants in Somalia under new authority granted by President Donald Trump.The Pentagon estimates the lethal strike destroyed a main al-Shabaab training base about 185 miles southwest of Mogadishu, killing eight militants in the process, Reuters reports.

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.

Al-Shabaab has also conducted successful operations against government forces in Burundi, Uganda and Kenya, netting the group large supplies of heavy weaponry, armed vehicles, small arms and other gear it has used to make huge strides in Somalia…

A Florida man found walking on a highway naked attacked a sheriff’s car and urinated on it, police say.

A sheriff’s deputy arrested Andrew Humphries, 18, after police found him walking along South U.S. Highway 441 naked Wednesday following a car crash, WTSP reported.

Police responded to a report of a crash on Highway 441 and Southeast 81st Street when they learned one of the drivers left the scene.

According to a video of the incident, a deputy found Humphries strolling along the highway and asked the man to come to him.

“What’s the deal, man? Why are you naked?” the deputy asked. “Were you in that accident up the road there?”…

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…

Sex Attacks At Swedish Festivals Have Risen 1,000 Percent – Breitbart

A new report has revealed that sex attacks at Swedish festivals have increased as much as 1000 percent in 2016, a trend which does not appear to be changing.

Non-profit organisation The Night Shift say they have documented over a hundred cases of sexual molestation, and that the numbers continue to rise Expressen reports. Over the past year, Sweden has seen a dramatic increase in the number of sex attacks at open air festivals and amusement parks across the country.

Grona Lund, an amusement park in Stockholm, was the scene of one sex attack last year, but so far this year there have been at least four according to security manager Fredrik Gemzell. The park, which has only been open since April, is one of the busiest in the country.

“All cases are reported to the police. It is young teenage girls who have been victims,” said Gemzell adding, “We have our own security centre, where visitors can call. In addition, we have a security team which patrols the park. It is good that the police reported…

3 Intollerant Leftist Groups Stop D.C. Gay Pride Parade, Force Them To Take Alternate Route – 100PercentFedUp

Protesters affiliated with the group No Justice, No Pride blocked this year’s Capital Pride Parade on three separate occasions, delaying the parade and forcing participants to use an alternative route, in protest of the participation of police officers and certain corporate sponsors.

The No Justice, No Pride group first conducted its own march down the planned parade route with signs like “rainbows don’t cover death merchants” and “no pride in police violence.” They then blocked the route at 15th and P Streets NW. Police formed a barricade around the demonstrators, allowing them to continue the protest, while re-routing the official parade down 16th Street. No arrests have been reported.

Pride parade fans were furious over the hijacking of their parade by leftist activist groups like Black Lives Matter and lashed out at the thugs who forced them to re-route the parade…

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.

In April, Czech Interior Minister, Milan Chovanec, had stated that his government would have to decide whether resistance to the EU’s quotas was worth the massive fines such a refusal would incur…

House Speaker Paul Ryan and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy have issued a very promising report about President Trump so far in his presidency. Compared to his immediate predecessors, Mr. Trump is forging ahead in his bid to better the nation and move forward.

“To date, President Trump has signed 37 bills into law, placing him ahead of the last four administrations,” the two Republican leaders noted in a report issued Thursday.

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.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell invoked Senate Rule 14 on Wednesday. That would allow the American Health Care Act – which barely passed the House on May 4 – to bypass Senate committees and go straight to a floor vote without a debate.

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.

Vice President Mike Pence would cast the deciding vote if there’s a tie. The Senate also requires a score from the Congressional Budget Office before a vote…

The District of Columbia is spending $20,000 to pay artists to paint environmentally friendly, pro-LGBTQ murals on storm drains.

Mayor Muriel Bowser unveiled a “rainbow-colored crosswalk” on Friday to promote gay pride parades that are taking place in the city this weekend. Bowser announced storm drains would also be painted by local artists to “celebrate the LGBTQ identity” and the environment.

“We are installing these temporary crosswalks as a symbol of Washington, D.C.’s inclusivity and LGBTQ pride,” Bowser said. “For many years, Washington, D.C., has been a leader on LGBTQ rights, and my administration will continue pushing forward to protect and defend the rights of and expand opportunity for our LGBTQ residents.

12 Staffers At Democrat-Linked Group Charged With Voter Fraud – Daily Caller

The Damaging Case Against James Comey – Jonathan Turley

The testimony of James Comey proved long on atmospherics and short on ethics. While many were riveted by Comey’s discussion of his discomfort in meetings with President Trump, most seemed to miss the fact that Comey was describing his own conduct in strikingly unethical terms. 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…

Communist Bernie Sanders Doesn’t Think Christians Are Fit For Public Office – The Federalist

While the nation’s capital was twittering with excitement on Wednesday about former FBI Director James Comey’s testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee, something far more outrageous was underway in another Senate hearing: Sen. Bernie Sanders, in a blatant violation of Article VI of the U.S. Constitution, was applying a religious test for an office of public trust.

Specifically, Sanders doesn’t think Christians are fit to serve in government because they’re bigots. Basic Christian theology, in Sanders’s view, “is indefensible, it is hateful, it is Islamophobic, and it is an insult to over a billion Muslims throughout the world.”

Here’s what happened.

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.

The law places extremely burdensome regulations on banks and other financial institutions, with the alleged goal of preventing another financial crisis. In reality, Dodd-Frank proved to be a disaster and simply gave more power to the federal government over our economy, and failed to address the root cause of the 2008 financial crisis.

Well, now that Republicans are in power, they have their sights set on Dodd-Frank, and the House of Representatives voted 233-186 to replace the disastrous law with their own piece of legislation.

From The Washington Examiner:

Authored by Rep. Jeb Hensarling of Texas, the conservative chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, the bill is perhaps second only to the healthcare legislation Republicans passed last month in its scope and significance…

Comey’s Columbia Leaker Pal Goes Into Hiding After Testimony – New York Post

He took the right to remain silent!

A Columbia University professor from Brooklyn went into hiding Thursday after pal James Comey revealed during his Senate testimony that the man leaked memos detailing the former FBI chief’s conversations with President Trump to the press.

Daniel Richman confirmed by e-mail to several reporters that he was the “good friend” and law-school prof who Comey slipped the documents – then hightailed it out of his tony Brooklyn Heights home and refused to answer any more questions.

Comey had just told a Senate Intelligence Committee that Richman was the conduit for the memo, which documented Trump asking Comey to drop the FBI’s probe into former National Security Adviser Mike Flynn.

Comey: A Six-Foot, Eight-Inch Pajama Boy – Patricia McCarthy

Aside from revealing that President Trump is guilty of exactly nothing but winning an election, James Comey sure did reveal a lot about himself. His feelings are easily hurt, he gets scared in Trump’s presence, he gets nauseated, is weak, gets confused and stunned. He is sorry his workforce had to hear what Trump said about the FBI, that it is in disarray. He sounded like a college snowflake on almost any American college campus in need of a safe space.

After a lifetime as a lawyer, U.S. attorney for the Southern District, U.S. deputy district attorney, and corporate lawyer, this is a man who never should have been appointed as director of the FBI. He does not have the temperament for the job. We learned yesterday that he unlawfully leaked his own memo, property of the FBI, to the press to “spur a special prosecutor” and cover his own backside. Why not turn it over to acting director McCabe or the DOJ? Because he’s malicious. He likely leaked a whole lot more to the press that is so in love with anonymous sources…

British Election Results: May’s Gamble Backfires – Financial Times

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…

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.”

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

In an article published Friday, The New York Times outed the Central Intelligence Agency’s (CIA) top spy overseeing the organization’s efforts in Iran. 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.

“The agency has extremely limited access to the country – no American embassy is open to provide diplomatic cover – and Iran’s intelligence services have spent nearly four decades trying to counter American espionage and covert operations,” the article noted…

A Lot More Than London Bridge Is Falling Down – Mark Steyn
.

.
At about 10pm British Summer Time on Saturday night, the London Bridge area was the scene of a series of vehicle attacks and stabbings. So my scheduled conversational topic with Judge Jeanine on Fox News was replaced by yet another discussion about terrorism. We’ll link to any video that gets posted. I’ll be back on Fox with Abby, Pete and Clayton tomorrow morning, Sunday, live at 8am Eastern/5am Pacific.

As I write, six members of the public are dead, and three attackers. I’m wary of weighing in as the situation is unfolding, but, though the details are always different, in the end the story is always the same. And, as I said only the other day, the reality of what is happening in Britain and Europe is that this problem was imported and that, until you stop importing it, you’re going to have more of it…

‘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…

CNN Caught Staging Fake News In Aftermath Of London Bridge Attack – Zero Hedge

Being one of the more inept tentacles of the deep state, CNN was apparently caught staging Fake News in the aftermath of the ISIS claimed London attacks which claimed 7 lives and injured 48.

While ISIS supporters are celebrating the attacks, MSM propagandists have been hard at work pushing the “religion of peace” narrative – trotting out hijabbed women and a child to hold signs expressing Muslim outrage at the terrorist attacks.

This doesn’t appear to have been an ‘organic’ protest against terrorism. Instead, it looks very much like CNN staged their outrage. AP used the #FakeNews pictures.

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

The ringleader of the London Bridge terror attack appeared in a Channel 4 documentary about jihadis in the UK last year. The 27-year-old from Barking, East London, is believed to have led the trio who ploughed into pedestrians before stabbing revellers in pubs and bars on Saturday night.

He is currently only being identified by his nickname “Abz” at the request of the Metropolitan Police. In 2016, he appeared in the documentary alongside a notorious preacher as they prayed to an Islamic State flag in a London park.

Police continue to investigate the atrocity that left seven dead and 48 injured. Officers made 12 arrests on Sunday as they raided several addresses including a tower block.

The brother-in-law of the attacker told The Sun: “We haven’t been told what’s going on. “We just want to grieve in peace.” It is understood the killer was a home-grown jihadi who came from Pakistan as a child but was brought up in the UK.

Muslim Terrorists Ram Van Into Crowd On London Bridge – Zero Hedge

In what appears to be a repeat of the deadly March 22 terrorist attack on Westminster Bridge in London, on Saturday night a white van rammed into as many as 15-20 pedestrians as “several people mowed down” on London Bridge in central London in what has been dubbed a “major incident.” The incident happened at 10.30pm on Saturday.

According to preliminary reports there have been at least 6 victims, and a cab driver on the bridge has reported he saw a stabbing man. About five people were being treated for injuries after the vehicle mounted the pavement and hit them, she said.

Scotland Yard reports that in addition to the car ramming, London police say they have also responded to an incident at Borough Market; armed officers at scene. It is unclear if the two incidents are releated.

Prominent Anti-Trump Group Has Received More Than $20 Million In Government Grants – Washington Free Beacon

A prominent liberal activist group that is closely involved with anti-Trump campaigns has been awarded more than $20 million in taxpayer-funded government grants since 2002, according to a review of the organization’s Form 990s.

Make the Road New York (MRNY), a New York City-based Latino immigrant group with 19,000 dues-paying members, has been actively involved with anti-Trump campaigns and is closely linked to an organization that is spearheading a new $80 million anti-Trump network that will span across 32 states.

In addition to generous funding from liberal billionaire George Soros, MRNY has hauled in millions in government grants.

From 2002 to 2007, MRNY recorded $1,372,440 in government grants on their Form 990s, an amount that averages $274,488 per year, with no grants in 2005. Government funding to the group sharply increased between 2008 and 2014, the last year a Form 990 is publicly available from the group…

President Trump will announce 10 nominees to the lower federal courts Monday. A White House official confirmed to The New York Times the 10 nominees will be the first in what will be monthly waves of judicial appointments.

In the wake of Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation, over 120 federal judge vacancies still need to be filled. Republicans no longer need to factor in filibusters that could hamper any of the incoming nominees, given the last two rule changes that happened in the Senate over the last four years.

Middle-Schooler Suspended For ‘Liking’ Picture Of Toy Gun On Instagram – Federalist Papers

An Ohio seventh-grader was suspended from school for ten days for “liking” a picture of a toy gun on social media.

“I don’t think I did anything wrong,” Zachary said. “[The] next morning, they called me down and, like, patted me down and checked me for weapons. Then, they told me I was getting expelled or suspended or whatever.”

The note the school sent home to Zachary’s parents said that the official cause of his suspension was “liking a post on social media that indicated potential school violence.”

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.

The decision is historic: a human being has not been placed in a receivership since slavery ended in 1865…

Woman Ends Up With Broken Legs After Muslim Migrant Throws Her Out Of Window For Refusing To Have Sex With Him – Daily Mail

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.

“This is the first new treatment approved by the FDA for ALS in many years, and we are pleased that people with ALS will now have an additional option,” he said…

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…

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

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.

Stepmom Says Democrat IT Scandal Figure Threatened Kidnappings Of Pakistani Kin – Daily Caller

A former congressional information technology (IT) aide allegedly threatened to have his stepmother’s Pakistani relatives kidnapped if she talked to U.S. law enforcement authorities, according to court documents obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation’s (TheDCNF) Investigative Group.

“Imran Awan threatened that he is very powerful and if I ever call the police again, [he] will … kidnap my family members back in Pakistan,” Awan’s stepmother, Samina Gilani, claimed in the documents filed April 14 in Fairfax County, Va., in the case of Americo Financial Life and Annuity Insurance Company v. Abid A. Awan and Samina Ashraf Gilani.

Imran Awan and his brothers Abid and Jamal are under criminal investigation by U.S. Capitol Police on suspicion they abused their administrator-level access to sensitive congressional data, as reported Feb. 4 by TheDCNF.

“Imran Awan did admit to me that my phone is tapped and there are devices installed in my house,” including one Gilani claimed in the court filing to have seen “behind the printer.”…

SpaceX Launches Falcon 9 On Secret, Classified Mission – USA Today

SpaceX sent a classified U.S. spy agency mission on its way to orbit Monday morning, then brought the rocket’s first stage home for a landing, possibly to fly again.

A 230-foot Falcon 9 rocket blasted off from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center at 7:15 a.m. ET, thundering northeast over the Atlantic Ocean with a U.S. National Reconnaissance Office mission labeled NROL-76.

The flight appeared to be off to a good start, but SpaceX cut off its launch broadcast a few minutes into the flight to help preserve its secrecy, as is standard practice during NRO missions.

100 Days Of #TheResistance’s Humiliating Failure – Kurt Schlichter

In the first 100 days since Felonia von Pantsuit was not inaugurated, the goofy collection of commie traitors, coastal snobs, and crack-pot weirdoes that hilariously styles itself “#TheResistance” has only managed to successfully resist success. Oh sure, they and the catamite media tried their darnedest but, as Yoda said, “Try not. Do, or do not. There is no try.” And, as Yoda also said, “Chelsea Clinton is best Democrats can do, say you? Kidding me, you are.”

Yeah, after 100 days President Trump has reintroduced the world to Alpha America after eight years of Barack’s fussy betaism, gutted a Schumer-ton of regulations, and broke the Senate Democrats’ spirit by suckering them into a loser play that resulted in Justice Gorsuch today and, I hope, Justice Crazy Conservative Caveman to replace Justice Kennedy this summer.

Japan Dispatches Its Biggest Warship Since WWII To Protect A U.S. Supply Ship From Kim Jong-Un’s Missiles – Daily Mail
.

.
Japan is sending its largest warship to protect a U.S. vessel as it resupplies the strike group led by carrier Carl Vinson amid tensions with North Korea.

The 800ft helicopter carrier Izumo left its home port of Yokosuka, south of Tokyo, on Monday to escort the American vessel to the waters off Shikoku, around 400 miles away at the top end of Japan’s south island.

The supply vessel, which is not being named, is believed to be in the region to support the ‘armada’ sent by President Trump to warn Kim Jong-un off conducting a sixth nuclear test.

The Izumo is Japan’s largest vessel constructed since the Second World War, and its active deployment marks the first time new powers expanding the role of the country’s military have been used…

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 1994, in an attempt to catch fraudulent tax returns, the IRS created the Electronic Fraud Detection System. In 2009, the IRS began to modernize this system by working on the Return Review Program to replace it.

“Despite the recognized need to get the [Return Review Program] in place in a timely manner, the program is still in development, and is now estimated to be completed in 2022,” the watchdog group explains. “The program is also ineffective.”

In 2015, the inspector general found that the program missed 54,175 fraudulent returns that totaled $313 million. Additionally, the Government Accountability Office found that the program incurred cost overruns and surpassed its initial budget by $86.5 million…

Scientists In China Conduct ‘Successful’ Head Transplant On Rat – The Independent

Scientists in China claim to have conducted a successful head transplant on a rat.

Controversial surgeon Sergio Canavero and colleague Xiaoping Ren attached the head of a smaller rat onto a larger one while maintaining the brain activity of the donor.

A third rat was used to keep up blood pressure on the rats being operated on, which otherwise would have been catastrophic and killed the animals.

The experiment was repeated on a number of other rats. Most only survived for around 36 hours after the procedure.

But it was hailed as a success by Dr Canavero because its goal was to avoid major blood loss.

Images of the rats appear to show the donor’s front paws and head stitched to the upper neck of the recipient rat.

Illegal Alien Accused Of $1.5 Million Food Stamp Scam On The Run After Cutting Off Tracking Bracelet – American Mirror

Massachusetts State Police are on a manhunt for Martin Santiago, an illegal immigrant from the Dominican Republic accused of running a multi-million dollar food stamp scam.

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.

Pelosi may have been able to claim IGNORANCE if her office wasn’t wired with a live security feed she can watch from any wi-fi device. According to an aide who gave a deposition on the incident, Pelosi spent a good amount of the night watching and laughing and recorded the whole thing.

It’s not secret that Liberals are MORALLY BANKRUPT, but according to reports from Washington Examiner , the party was little more than a Roman toga-themed orgy in a taxpayer-funded office where DRUGS were used liberally and almost everyone ended up with their TOGA on the floor.

Disgusting use of resources paid for by the people . All of the interns have been fired and now Pelosi faces the wrath of Trey Gowdy’s newly formed ETHICS COMMITTEE…

A leading researcher on a ridiculed taxpayer-funded study of duck penises is now using her expertise on orca whales and is going to the “March for Science” to protest budget cuts.

Patricia Brennan, a visiting lecturer at Mount Holyoke College in Massachusetts, worked on the duck penis study that received $384,949 from the National Science Foundation, a grant that was funded through the 2009 stimulus package. The study looked at the differences in the corkscrew-shaped penises of ducks.

A recent interview with New England Public Radio revealed that Brennan is still fascinated by genitalia of various marine animals, this time one from an orca whale that was just delivered from Sea World to her lab…

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

A German judge has acquitted a Turkish man of rape, despite the fact that he forced a woman to have sex with him, and left her incapacitated. 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.

He asked her to “go to bed with her” and she refused. According to the report, she had said he was “not her type.” But the drug dealer forced himself on her…

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.”

Many Mexicans looking north have shifted their focus from the United States to Canada as President Donald Trump vows to crack down on America’s undocumented immigrants, about half of whom are Mexican…

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

But good-government group Judicial Watch discovered that Obama’s IRS granted a Satanist group – yes, Devil-worshippers – official nonprofit status in a mere 10 days from start to finish. Maybe Saul Alinsky paid tribute to Lucifer in Rules for Radicals for a reason.

Democrat Mayor From Ohio Pleads Guilty To Multiple Counts Of Child Rape – WCMH

Former Hubbard, Ohio mayor Richard Keenan, who now admits to raping a young child, is facing life behind bars.

According to court documents, the abuse began as early as September 2013 when the victim – who Keenan knew – was just 4 years old.

“It gives the victim some closure. Obviously, keeps this young child from having to testify and I think it’s a good result given all the facts and circumstances,” said Assistant Prosecutor Gabe Wildman.

He said prosecutors have a responsibility to do what’s best for the victim and that they accomplished that Friday.

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 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…

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.

“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.

“Tennessee is an employment-at-will state which basically means an employer can end your employment at any time without reason or cause. Of course there are a lot of different stipulations, civil rights issues that could stop them from doing that,” Department of Labor and Workforce Development spokesman, Chris Cannon said…

A Day Without Jobs: 21 South Carolinians Fired For Taking Part In ‘A Day Without Immigrants’ Protest – WLTX

Twenty one people were fired after taking part in the Day Without Immigrants Protest.

The movement closed restaurants and shops across the country to show the contributions immigrants have on the American workforce.

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.

News19 reached out to Encore Boat Builders on Friday but the company had no comment at the time. On Monday, we called them again, and they said the employees accounted for about 20 percent of their workforce. They’re now looking to hire their replacements. .

They said this was all done following protocol: if someone doesn’t call in, they can get fired.

Melissa Burnette is an employment attorney. and says South Carolina is a Right To Work state where employers can make those kinds of decisions…

Former Obama Campaign Manager Fined $90,000 For Unethical Lobbying For Uber – Breitbart
.

.
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.

The San Francisco resident was fined $1,000 a day for the 90 days he used personal email accounts without being a registered lobbyist to lobby Mayor Emanuel, former Chief of Staff to President Barack Obama, to allow Uber to make unlimited ride-share pick-ups at Chicago’s Midway and O’Hare airports. 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

Social justice warriors can find a way to be offended by anything. Even the Dalai Lama’s words are too controversial for their delicate ears.

Students at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) are protesting their school’s announcement that the Dalai Lama will speak at their commencement ceremony in June. Chinese students studying at the American campus said he was an oppressive figure given his stance on Tibetan independence. Meanwhile, left-wing students are angered by his criticism of the Communist Party of China, Quartz Media reported.

A few hours after the announcement, the Chinese Students and Scholars Association (CSSA) released a note in Mandarin on WeChat saying it had communicated with the Chinese consulate.

“UCSD is a place for students to cultivate their minds and enrich their knowledge. Currently, the various actions undertaken by the university have contravened the spirit of respect, tolerance, equality, and earnestness – the ethos upon which the university is built,” the note stated. “These actions have also dampened the academic enthusiasm of Chinese students and scholars…

Shep was NOT happy about Trump bashing CNN as fake news. (Did he also object when Obama treated Fox like fake news? Because if he didn’t… THAT would be awkward)

Watching this, we were half-expecting Shep to break into a Meryl Streep crying fit.

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.

“This is some GRADE A Bullshit right here,” Stephen Handwerk, executive director of the Louisiana Democratic Party, wrote in a private Democratic-listserv email obtained by The Daily Beast…

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…

Scott Pruitt Confirmed As EPA Chief Despite Democrat Obstruction – Washington Times

Scott Pruitt won confirmation Friday to be administrator of the EPA, foiling Democrats’ attempts to hold up his nomination until the former Oklahoma attorney general complies with a judge’s order and releases thousands of emails between his office and oil-and-gas companies.

In a highly contentious vote that came on the heels of a last-ditch delaying effort from Democrats, Mr. Pruitt was approved to head the agency by a vote of 52 to 46.

The vote broke largely along party lines, though two Democrats – Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Sen. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota – backed Mr. Pruitt.

Republican Sen. Susan Collins of Maine voted against him, saying she does not believe he’s fit to head the EPA. She was the only member of the GOP caucus to vote against Mr. Pruitt…

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.

Pagliano worked for Clinton at the State Department. There, he set up and maintained her secret email system, on which classified information was stored…

Harvard Geneticists On The Brink Of Resurrecting The Woolly Mammoth – IBT

Geneticists from Harvard University claim that they are on the brink of bringing the woolly mammoth back to life. The mammoth lived in Africa, North America, Asia and Europe before they vanished 4,500 years ago, towards the end of the Pleistocene period. The geneticists say that they are now just two years away from resurrecting the extinct animal.

The team of researchers led by Professor George Church plan to come up with a revolutionary research by using frozen DNA of the mammoth preserved in Arctic permafrost.

“We’re working on ways to evaluate the impact of all these edits and basically trying to establish embryogenesis in the lab,” Professor Church, head of the Harvard Woolly Mammoth Revival team, was quoted as saying by The Telegraph…

It’s A Bloodbath At The State Department – New York Post

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is cleaning house at the State Department, according to a report.

Staffers in the offices of deputy secretary of state for management and resources as well as counselor were shown the door Thursday, according to CBS News.

Many of those let go were on the building’s seventh floor – top-floor bigs – a symbolically important sign to the rest of the diplomatic corps that their new boss has different priorities than the last one.

The staffing changes came as Tillerson was on his first foreign trip – attending a G-20 meeting in Bonn, Germany.

“As part of the transition from one administration to the next, we continue to build out our team. The State Department is supported by a very talented group of individuals, both Republicans and Democrats,” State Department spokesman RC Hammond told CBS.

“We are appreciative to any American who dedicates their talents to public,” he added.

This week’s round of firings marks the second time State Department personnel have been cleared out since President Trump took office last month…

Black Trump Supporter Goes Off On Leftists At ‘Sanctuary City’ Town Hall Meeting – Mad World News

After opening a public forum for members of the community to speak about their sanctuary city for illegal immigrants, a few politicians realized they bit off more than they could chew. That was proven to be the case when a black woman approached the podium – and she left the panel in complete shock after dropping eight badass words.

Most of America is aware of the Democrats’ tactics to hinder President Donald Trump’s efforts at every turn, but at this point, they’re just putting the lives of their constituents at risk. In fact, as we continue to see more sanctuary cities pop up, we’re also seeing a spike in crime that comes along with it – but not everyone is taking it lying down.

In fact, residents of Cudahy, California, were so outraged over the decision to let criminals roam free within their town limits that local politicians were forced to open their doors to hear everyone out…

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…
