Top Obama Official Squeals: ‘We Faked Climate Change Data’ – Your News Wire

Top Obama official Steven Koonin has become the latest Democrat to roll over and stab his former comrades in the back, telling the Wall Street Journal that Obama’s administration manipulated ‘climate change’ data to trick the public into accepting Democrat policies.

“What you saw coming out of the press releases about climate data, climate analysis, was, I’d say, misleading, sometimes just wrong,” said Koonin, former Undersecretary of the Department of Energy, referring to the Obama administration’s manipulations and lies.

According to Koonin’s explosive confession, departments responsible for environmental science either “misrepresented data” or “completely fabricated results” to justify the destructive policies of the Obama administration.

Scientists at NASA and the National Ocean and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) colluded with press officers to create deceitful press releases that propped up the former president’s agenda…

Russia Readies Back-Up System For Potential “Split With International Banking System” – Zero Hedge
.

.
The grand order of things could be undergoing some major overhauls. To put it more bluntly, a war to reset the global financial order is about to be unleashed.

Preparations inside Russia are being made in case the ultimate banking sanctions are placed on them, cutting off commerce inside the all-encompassing Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecomm SWIFT system – which runs credit, debt, and banking card transactions across a real time global network.

As it would be doled out by the banking elites, the price for misbehavior at the Kremlin could be ostracization from this global commerce vehicle.

But that isn’t the end of the story, Putin is readying his people to divorce from the international banking system altogether…

Wild Boars Rampage In Kirkuk Leaving Three ISIS Terrorists Dead – Iraqi News

Kirkuk (IraqiNews.com) Three Islamic State militants died late Sunday when wild boars attacked them in southern Kirkuk, a local source was quoted saying.

The animals went on a rampage near a farmland in al-Rashad region, an Islamic State pocket 53 kilometers south of Kirkuk. They attacked the militants and left three killed, according to the source.

Alsumaria News quoted the source saying that “Daesh (Islamic State) militants took revenge at the pigs that attacked the farmland,” but did not clarify the method.

Since emerging in 2014 to proclaim a self-styled “Islamic Caliphate”, ISIS members have held areas in southwestern Kirkuk, where thousands of civilians had to flee the group’s rule to refugee camps in the province and neighboring cities.

Local officials have repeatedly urged the government to hasten with security efforts to liberate ISIS-held regions in Kirkuk, but the Iraqi government is currently employing its full military power in the six-month-old campaign to retake Mosul, IS’s biggest stronghold in Iraq…

Islamic State militants have regularly executed civilians in Kirkuk over accusations of collaboration with security forces or attempting to flee the province to refugee camps.

The U.S. military has started moving parts of the controversial THAAD anti-missile defense system into a planned deployment site in South Korea, Yonhap news agency reported on Wednesday, amid high tensions over North Korea’s missile and nuclear programs.

The United States and South Korea have agreed to deploy THAAD in response to the threat of missile launches by North Korea but China says it will do little to deter the North while destabilizing the regional security balance.

Idiot Leftist Refuses To Believe DNA Test Proving He’s White – Daily Caller

A man refused to accept the results of his ancestry DNA test after it revealed he wasn’t black, according to a New York Times piece last week.

Two professors from West Chester University decided to do an in-depth analysis into various people’s ancestries and backgrounds. First they asked participants to guess the results. One of their participants, Bernard, came away very displeased when the test revealed he was mainly European and not at all black.

Bernard walked into the test identifying himself as “black.” He informed the professors ahead of time that despite having a white mother, his mother raised him to identify as a black man.

“My mother said, ‘I know you are me, but no cop is going to take the time to find out your mother is white,’” Bernard explained before the test. “She was very specific about raising me as a black man.”

Bernard’s test, however, revealed that he is only one percent African/Asian…

Treasonous, Obama-Appointed Judge Temporarily Blocks Part Of Trump’s Executive Order Defunding Sanctuary Cities – Daily Caller

A federal judge temporarily blocked a key portion of an immigration-related executive order Donald Trump signed in January that would allow the federal government to withhold funding from sanctuary cities.

U.S. District Court Judge William Orrick issued a nationwide preliminary injunction Tuesday that prevents the government from enforcing the part of order where it says the policy of the executive branch is to “ensure that jurisdictions that fail to comply with applicable federal law do not receive Federal funds, except as mandated by law.”

In his ruling on the lawsuit brought forth by San Francisco and by Santa Clara counties, Orrick said the cities – which shield illegal immigrants – would “suffer irreparable harm absent an injunction.”…

Ted Cruz Introduces Bill That Would Fund Border Wall With Money Seized From Drug Lords – The Hill

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) is introducing a bill to allow assets seized from drug lords, like Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, to fund President Trump’s proposed wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

Cruz’s bill, the Ensuring Lawful Collection of Hidden Assets to Provide Order Act, also known as the “El Chapo Act,” is a reference to the Mexican drug kingpin from the Sinaloa cartel.

The U.S. government is seeking $14 billion from the drug lord as part of its prosecution of Guzman.

“Fourteen billion dollars will go a long way toward building a wall that will keep Americans safe and hinder the illegal flow of drugs, weapons and individuals across our southern border,” Cruz said Tuesday, according to Axios.

Guzman was extradited from Mexico to the U.S. in January, pleading not guilty to a 17-charge indictment in a federal court in New York.

The charges allege that Guzman led a continuing criminal enterprise responsible for drug trafficking and conspiracy between 1989 and 2014…

Rumors started spreading last week that House Republicans were close to a deal on repealing Obamacare, and now Congressman Mark Meadows says a repeal bill will pass by the end of May.

The agreement, brokered by the House Freedom Caucus chairman and Tuesday Group co-chairman Tom MacArthur (R-NJ), would allow states to eliminate Obamacare’s community rating system – a rule that prohibits health insurers from pricing health care plans based on age, gender, or health status.

Trump’s Lawyer Launches Legal Action Against BuzzFeed For Publishing ‘Completely Fabricated’ Dossier – Washington Times

Michael D. Cohen, President Trump’s personal attorney, says he has instructed his own attorney to investigate legal action against BuzzFeed, which posted an opposition research “dossier” that accused Mr. Cohen without proof of a conspiracy with Russian agents.

Mr. Cohen told The Washington Times that he also is considering a lawsuit against former British spy Christopher Steele, who wrote the gossipy 35-page dossier that the liberal news website posted on Jan. 10.

Mr. Steele was paid by a Hillary Clinton supporter, via the Democratic Party-linked firm Fusion GPS, to gather dirt on candidate Trump last summer and fall. GPS circulated the Steele memos to reporters and Democrats.

But it was not until BuzzFeed posted the dossier that some people named in it learned that they were accused of wrongdoing.

In Mr. Cohen’s case, Mr. Steele accused him of traveling to Prague in the last week of August to meet with Russian agents to devise a plan to cover up the supposed Trump-Russia hacking of Democratic Party email servers…

Mexico On High Alert After Radioactive Material Is Stolen – Daily Express

The Mexican government has placed nine states on high alert after radioactive material capable of creating a dirty bomb was stolen near the nation’s second largest city. The Iridium 192, a potentially highly unstable material used in radiography equipment, was stolen on the outskirts of tourist hotspot Guadalajara.

Luis Felipe Puente‏, head of national emergency services, placed nine states on high alert after the material disappeared just half a day’s drive from the Texan border.

Iridium 192, which has a half-life of 73 days, is one of a small number of radioactive materials suitable for use in an act of radiological terror. But authorities are concerned the radioactive isotope may have been stolen accidentally, with thieves unwittingly holding onto the destructive material after attempting to steal the pickup truck it was housed in…

Nasdaq Hits 6,000 For The First Time – Business Insider

U.S. stocks opened higher on Tuesday, building on a day-earlier rally, spurred by a raft of strong corporate earnings and an expected tax reform plan.

The tech-heavy Nasdaq crossed the 6,000 mark for the first time just after the market opened.

Better-than-expected quarterly profits from Dow components, including Caterpillar and McDonald’s, helped the blue-chip index outperform other major Wall Street indexes in active trading.

At 9:34 a.m. ET, the Dow was up 153 points, or 0.74%, the S&P 500 was up 9 points, or 0.42%, and the Nasdaq was up 23 points, or 0.40%.

President Donald Trump promised last week to make “a big tax reform and tax reduction” announcement on Wednesday. The President has directed his aides to move quickly on a plan to cut the corporate income tax rate to 15 percent from 35 percent, a Trump administration official said on Monday.

Amazon Immediately Regrets Giving Muslims A Job After Nasty Payback They Just Got For It – Freedom Daily

Employers at the Amazon headquarters stationed in the liberal city of Seattle, Washington thought they were doing the “tolerant” thing to prove to the rest of the U.S. that Muslims can make great employees with hiring several on their staff. They soon learned what happens when ignorance and Islam collide after showing up to work recently and getting a nasty surprise from these ungrateful immigrants they had generously hired. It didn’t take long for the mega-retailer to return the favor with a special surprise of their own.

Thanks to an eight-year apology tour under Barack Obama, Muslims have become entitled to believe that whatever they want, they should get, or face condemnation after claims they are being discriminated against. No other religion in the U.S. gets as many accommodations made for them as Muslims do, which they intentionally created to be this way. Ignorant liberals fell hard into their trap, coming to their defense and going out of their way to give them special opportunities, only to have to learn the hard way that they were played…

“There are thousands of ingenious, gleaming rifles and handguns in displays about America’s gun-rich history of colonialism, immigration, expansionism and vigilante justice,” Clines wrote on page A22 of Monday’s Times. “But it is the gallery devoted to Hollywood and its guns and good-guy shooters that best illustrates the power of fantasy now driving the modern gun rights debate.”…

Dozens Of ‘Juveniles’ Swarm Communter Train In Oakland, Terrorize And Rob Passengers – San Francisco Gate

BART police are beefing up patrols at Oakland stations after dozens of juveniles terrorized riders Saturday night when they invaded the Coliseum Station and commandeered at least one train car, forcing passengers to hand over bags and cell phones and leaving at least two with head injuries.

The incident occurred around 9:30 p.m. Saturday. Witnesses told police that 40 to 60 juveniles flooded the station, jumped the fare gates and rushed to the second-story train platform. Some of the robbers apparently held open the doors of a Dublin-bound train car while others streamed inside, confronting and robbing and in some cases beating riders.

“I’ve been there 24 years and this is the first time I’ve heard of anything like this happening,” said Keith Garcia, a BART police officer and union president.

New Study Calls EPA’s Labeling Of CO2 A Pollutant ‘Totally False’ – Daily Caller

A new study published by seasoned researchers takes aim at the heart of the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) authority to issue regulations to curb carbon dioxide emissions.

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.

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.

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.

Most of the deaths took place in El Valle, a working class neighborhood near Caracas’ biggest military base where opposition leaders say a group of people were hit with an electrical current while looting and trying to steal a refrigerator from a bakery.

The chaos turned deadly when looters entered a bakery protected by an electric fence and tried to remove a refrigerator. The accounts varied, but one opposition leader said 13 people were hit with an electrical current after tossing containers filled with water and making contact with the refrigerator’s power cord.

Daniela Alvarado, 25, who sells vegetables in the El Valle area, said the looting on Thursday night began after police officers fired tear gas and buckshot at demonstrators blocking a street with burning tires…

Nancy Pelosi May Be Forced To Resign Over Intern Sex Scandal – USA Politics Today

Democrat Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is in a PICKLE and may need to STEP DOWN amid a scandal nobody SAW coming. A small group of interns working for her asked if they could throw a birthday party in her office after hours that ended being a wild ride of sex and drugs.

Taxpayer-Funded Duck Penis Researcher Now Studying Whale Penises – Washington Free Beacon

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.

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…

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

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

Aya Hijazi, who is of Egyptian-American heritage, was released and brought back to her family in Washington, The Washington Post reported on Thursday.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Trump Saves Another $60 Billion In Regulatory Costs – Washington Free Beacon

President Donald Trump and Congress have saved an additional $60 billion in regulatory costs by rolling back Obama administration rules, according to a new report.

The American Action Forum, a center-right policy institute, released a report Tuesday documenting the most recent ways the administration and Congress have used the Congressional Review Act to repeal regulations.

The report found the recent repeal and delay of regulations could lead to $86 billion in net fiscal effects for taxpayers from deregulation.

“Congress has already passed 13 CRA resolutions, repealing more than $1.1 billion (annually) in past regulations from the Obama Administration,” the report, written by Sam Batkins, director of regulatory policy for AAF, said. “In addition, President Trump has formally delayed and signaled an intention to amend several other major rules. Combined, these actions could generate more than $18 billion in annual regulatory savings for businesses, investors, and consumers.”…

Pervert Ex-Cop Gets 28 Years For Orchestrating Child Molestation – New York Post

“The French interior minister, Matthias Fekl, said the two… were radicalised French nationals aged 24 and 30. ‘These two radicalised men… intended to commit in the very short-term – by that I mean in the coming days – an attack on French soil.’”

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

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

In an initiative to “combat Islamophobia and the bullying of Muslims students,” San Diego’s public school district has formed a partnership with an organization regarded by the FBI as a front group for Hamas and by an Gulf Arab state as a terrorist organization.

The San Diego chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, nevertheless, was formally approved by the board of the San Diego Unified School District this month to help develop a plan that will include the review and vetting of materials related to Muslim culture and history.

A report outlining the district’s objectives touted CAIR as an organization that “has been involved in constructive civic engagement, promotes cultural tolerance and understanding, as well as justice and equality.”

Hanif Mohebi, executive director of CAIR San Diego, told the school board April 4 that CAIR wants the district’s program to become a national model.

Unions Spent $1.7 Billion On Mostly Leftist Politicians In 2016 – Washington Free Beacon

Organized labor spent a record $1.7 billion on politics and lobbying during the 2016 election cycle, with the vast majority of money coming from member dues and supporting Democrats.

The National Institute for Labor Relations Research (NILRR), a nonprofit union watchdog, found that unions spent $1.713 billion on political activities and lobbying. The watchdog group analyzed federal labor filings that disclose how much unions spend on political activities at the federal, state, and local level, as well as Federal Election Commission records collected by OpenSecrets.com.

Stan Greer, the researcher behind the study, said 75 percent of the money spent on politics came from union treasuries rather than campaign PACs or other independent union-backed political operations.

“Big Labor is increasingly turning its focus away from workplace matters and more and more towards buying political influence,” Greer said in a statement.

NILRR has tracked union political spending throughout the 21st century, finding that unions have significantly ramped up their spending in the last four years…

Kim Jong-Un Attempts To Launch New ‘Game-Changer’ Missile, Fails Miserably – Daily Mail

North Korea has attempted to fire a missile it introduced just hours ago at a military parade – but the launch was an embarrassing failure after the weapon blew up almost immediately.

It is thought to be one of the country’s new ‘game-changer’ intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM) which was revealed to the world in a display of military might yesterday.

The South Korean defence ministry said it had detected a failed launch from Sinpo – where North Korea’s biggest submarine base is located.

According to a military official the weapon is ‘presumed to be a new ICBM’ as it is longer than the existing KN-08 or KN-14 missiles.

U.S. defence secretary James Mattis said Donald Trump is ‘aware’ of the launch and has no further comment.

The South Korean defence ministry said in a statement: ‘North Korea attempted to test an unidentified type of missile from Sinpo area in the South Hamkyong Province this morning, but we suspect the launch has failed.’…

Chris Christie Commutes Sentence Of Marine War Veteran Facing 3 Years For Gun Charge – Breitbart

On Friday Gov. Chris Christie (R) commuted the prison sentence for former Marine Sergeant Hisashi Pompey, arrested six years ago for possessing a legally owned gun that was unregistered in the state of New Jersey.

On April 13 Breitbart News reported that Pompey brought his handgun into New Jersey while visiting from Virginia. Following an altercation at a nightclub, one of Pompey’s friends retrieved the gun and was arrested. Pompey was also arrested because the gun was not registered in the state of New Jersey.

ABC 7 reported that Pompey did “three tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan for which he received medals for bravery.” He was a military police sergeant who now has a wife and young children at home. Until Christie intervened on Friday, Pompey was preparing to surrender to authorities for what would have been a minimum 36-month sentence for possession of an unregistered firearm.

When news of the commuted sentence reached Pompey, he responded by making sure it was not a joke. Pompey said, “Oh my God, oh my God, oh my God, this isn’t April Fools, right? I don’t know how to react. I’m grateful, grateful.”

Dumbest Congresswoman In History Rallies Pack Of Deranged Morons For Trump’s Impeachment – The Hill

Waters has been among the most vocal critics of Trump in Congress, and she has repeatedly signaled that she would be willing to impeach the president.

Days after Trump took office, Waters said her “greatest desire is to lead [Trump] right into impeachment.” In March, Waters argued that Trump should be impeached if evidence emerged that he colluded with the Russian government. Later in the month, she tweeted “get ready for impeachment.”

Delaware Lawmaker And Air Force Veteran Calls Out “Despicable” Muslims For Chanting On Senate Floor – USA Politics Today

Once again the optics says it all, and perhaps more disturbing are those elected legislators who apparently can’t decide between their oath of allegiance to our Constitution or a destructive cult that seeks not to assimilate but to subjugate those who come into contact with this radical body of adherents.

How Many Countries Conspired Against Trump? – John Hinderaker

Britain’s spy agencies played a crucial role in alerting their counterparts in Washington to contacts between members of Donald Trump’s campaign team and Russian intelligence operatives, the Guardian has been told.

GCHQ first became aware in late 2015 of suspicious “interactions” between figures connected to Trump and known or suspected Russian agents, a source close to UK intelligence said. This intelligence was passed to the US as part of a routine exchange of information, they added.

190 Muslims Fired From Denver Company For Staging ‘Walk-Out’ Over Prayer Accommodations – Freedom Daily

Accountability Update: VA Launches Website To Track Medical Wait Times – Washington Examiner

The Department of Veterans Affairs on Wednesday launched a supplemental website meant to provide veterans with a tool to access quality of care data and patient wait time in real time.

“No other health-care system in the country releases this type of information on wait times. This allows Veterans to see how VA is performing,” VA Sec. David Shulkin said in a statement.

The website, http://www.accesstocare.va.gov, will list data for the 1,700 national health facilities as well as a dozen private sector hospitals.

Appeals Court Rules Against San Diego Unions: First Of Many Taxpayer Victories To Come – Zero Hedge

In 2012, San Diego voters gave Landslide Approval to Proposition B, which eliminated defined-benefit pensions for newly hired city workers except for police.

In December of 2015, the state Public Employment Relations Board, a bastion of Union sympathizers, ordered the city to make millions of dollars of retroactive payments to workers hired since the law took effect.

The city appealed. Today we have a very welcome ruling for taxpayers: An Appeals Court overturned the PERB Ruling.

“This is a victory for the citizens of San Diego and the state of California,” said taxpayer advocate April Boling, one of three who filed court appeals. “The court agreed citizens can take matters into their own hands through the initiative process and support of elected officials does not somehow trigger the requirement for union negotiations.”

Since the provisions of the ballot measure were implemented, most new employees have been offered 401k-style plans…

President Trump Signs Bill Reversing Obama’s ‘Parting Gift’ To Planned Parenthood – Townhall

President Trump signed another piece of pro-life legislation Thursday. With his signature on H.J. Res. 43, states now have the ability to deny Planned Parenthood funding and contribute to family planning as they see fit.

Trump’s action reverses a last minute law from the Obama administration which prevented states from blocking federal funds to Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers, under Title X. Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser has described that Obama HHS effort as a “parting gift” to the abortion industry.

Trump has already received applause from the pro-life movement by reinstating the Mexico City Policy, which bars taxpayer funds for overseas abortions, defunding the United Nations Population Fund, which was complicit in China’s cruel one-child policy, and succeeding in getting Neil Gorsuch confirmed to the Supreme Court…

Chicagoland: BLM Protesters Arrested For Conspiring To Help ISIS – American Mirror

Two suburban Chicago men and Black Lives Matter supporters were arrested by the FBI on Wednesday for conspiring to support ISIS after a 19-month investigation showed they plotted to send a recruit and cell phone detonators to the terrorist organization.

Federal officials arrested Edward Schimenti and Joseph Jones, both 35, around 5 a.m. Wednesday after an investigation that involved four federal agents and a fifth person cooperating with the bust.

According to the Chicago Sun Times:

The feds allegedly led Jones and Schimenti to believe they had gained access to an ISIS network designed to smuggle new recruits into Syria.

The men allegedly helped the cooperator obtain cellphones meant to be used as detonators, introduced him to an undercover fed they believed could get him overseas, and then drove the cooperator to O’Hare Airport to begin his journey on Friday. Once he left, the pair planned to deliver more cellphones via the cooperator’s “aunt,” records show…

China Buys More U.S. Coal, Sends North Korea Packing – Washington Examiner

China is banning shipments of coal from North Korea because of last week’s missile test and has made up the shortfall by importing more coal from the United States.

The news comes just days after President Trump met with Chinese President Xi Jinping at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, where the administration said North Korea’s missile tests would be a top priority in the talks.

Reuters first reported Tuesday that China’s customs department ordered all companies that receive imports from North Korea to immediately return all coal cargoes, according to three trading sources who saw the order. The order was sent by the Chinese government on April 7, soon after Trump and Xi concluded their discussions.

The decision will be a boon for U.S. coal producers as China has ramped up orders of U.S. coking coal used in making steel, Reuters reported. The increase in U.S. coal imports fits nicely with Trump’s pro-fossil fuel agenda to put miners in coal country back to work…

Russia Says It Won’t Try To Shoot Down U.S. Missiles If Trump Bombs Assad Regime Again – Daily Mail

China Offers Concessions To Avoid Trade War With U.S. – Financial Times

Montana was one of the 13 states considering legislation seeking to prevent the use of foreign law in state courts. While the bill’s focus was not on Shariah law, some supporters specifically spoke out against the religious law used in some parts of the Islamic world…

New Jersey Immigration Lawyer Charged With Visa Fraud, Mail Fraud And Aggravated Identity Theft – Long Valley Patch

A Denville immigration attorney has been charged with stealing the identity of another attorney and submitting fake via applications, U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement said in a statement.

Charles Jason Lore, 43, is being charged with visa fraud, aggravated identity theft and mail fraud. ICE officials say he submitted over 250 visa applications claiming his clients as extraordinary achievements in the entertainment industry, something ICE said is a “rare exception.”

Between April 2011 and January 2015, Lore allegedly submitted fraudulent I-129 forms claiming his clients were musicians, actors and artists who deserved temporary nonimmigrant worker visas.

After being questioned by immigration authorities, Lore allegedly stole another lawyers identity and continued to submit fraudulent claims under that lawyers name.

If found guilty, he could face more than 30 years in federal prison…

Muslim Terrorists Bomb Two Churches In Egypt, Killing 44 And Wounding 126 – Toronto Star
.

.
Suicide bombers struck hours apart at two Coptic churches in northern Egypt, killing 44 people and turning Palm Sunday services into scenes of horror and outrage at the government that led the president to call for a three-month state of emergency.

ISIS claimed responsibility for the violence, adding to fears that extremists are shifting their focus to civilians, especially Egypt’s Christian minority.

The attacks in the northern cities of Tanta and Alexandria that also left 126 people wounded came at the start of Holy Week leading up to Easter, and just weeks before Pope Francis is due to visit.

It was the single deadliest day for Christians in decades and the worst since a bombing at a Cairo church in December killed 30 people.

Obama’s DOJ Protected Illegal Alien Child Rapist Now Accused Of Murder – Breitbart

An illegal alien who allegedly twice raped his 15-year-old stepdaughter now stands accused of murdering the girl after Obama’s Department of Justice refused to prosecute him on human smuggling charges. ICE officers were never able to deport the man despite a lengthy criminal history that includes charges of assault, burglary, and human smuggling.

Many opportunities to prevent the needless rape and murder of a young Texas girl slipped by the wayside before 36-year-old Armando Rodrigo Garcia-Ramirez twice impregnated his victim, Jennifer Delgado. In 2008, police arrested the Mexican national for assault. A local prosecutor chose to drop the charges, the Washington Times reported. In 2009, Garcia-Ramires found himself in custody – this time, charged with assault. Prosecutors also dismissed this charge.

In 2011, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers took arrested the man and attempted to deport him. A judge granted the man bond and released him. No further information about this case is currently available…

Syria: It Doesn’t Matter Who Used The Chemical Weapons, The Issue Is Extremism And Stability – Sundance
.

.
There is a predictable disconnect amid political followers who have not paid close attention to the direct Mid-East visitors to the Donald Trump White House regarding the origin of the chemical weapons use in Syria.

Focusing on who used chemical weapons is a moot point in the larger issue of the Syrian conflict. It doesn’t matter whether ISIS “rebels” deployed them or whether Bashir Assad used them against the “rebels” when contemplating President Trump’s response to stop using them. The victims are Syrians. The regional alliance members don’t care who used them. The message is to stop.

We could make a solid argument that either interested party: Bashir Assad or “the rebels” (al-Qaeda, ISIS, al-Nusra et al) had motive and opportunity to use chemical weapons…

Mnuchin: Trump Planning New Economic Sanctions Against Syria – New York Post

The U.S. will slap Syria with new economic sanctions to curb the rogue nation’s use of chemical weapons, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Friday.

“We view sanctions as being a very important tool,” Mnuchin told reporters at President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida.

Mnuchin revealed few details about the penalties but said they would go into effect in the “near future,” The Hill reported.

The announcement shows that Team Trump is ratcheting up its fight against Syrian strongman Bashar Assad after a deadly nerve gas attack that his forces carried out this week.

The announcement came a day after after US navy warships launched 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at an airfield from which the Syrian military launched the attack that killed scores, including women and children…

Ed Murray, the mayor of “sanctuary city” Seattle, is facing a lawsuit from a 46-year-old man who says Murray repeatedly “raped and molested him” while the accuser was a crack-addicted teenager in the 1980s, The Seattle Times reports.

The man from Kent, Washington, identified only as “D.H.” in the lawsuit filed in a state court, accuses the mayor of sexually abusing him in frequent encounters and paying him from $10 to $20 each time.

He described the revelation as essential to the “healing process” of addiction recovery, coming to terms with “the shame, the embarrassment, the guilt, the humiliation that I put myself through and that he put me through.”…

Trump Nominates Neomi Rao For Regulatory Chief – The Hill
.

.
President Trump appointed a new regulatory czar Friday. Neomi Rao, an associate law professor at George Mason University, was nominated to run the White House’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA).

OIRA will play a central role in Trump’s regulatory reform agenda. This obscure agency, which is buried inside the White House’s Office of Management and Budget (OMB), reviews regulations from federal agencies and has the power to reject rules that do not fall in line with the president’s goals.

As the OIRA administrator, Rao will play a key role in overseeing Trump’s plan to eliminate 75 percent of federal regulations.

Rao, an expert in constitutional and administrative law, has split her career between the courtroom and the classroom.

Former OIRA Administrator Susan Dudley said Rao has a “sharp legal mind” who will be able to “manage the competing demands of regulatory policy.”…

Leftist Election Worker Charged With Illegally Changing Records To Allow Felons To Vote In North Carolina – Washington Free Beacon

A North Carolina election worker has been charged with illegally altering voter records so hundreds of felons could vote, The News and Observer reports.

Joy Yvette Wilkerson, a former temporary election worker in Granville County, N.C., accessed voter registration records and restored the active voting status of 250 convicted felons in the county. The activity, which was initially discovered by the Granville County Board of Elections last June, is a felony.

27-year-old Seth Rich was shot and killed in a Washington D.C. neighborhood in July 2016, during the 2016 Presidential Campaign.
