Kindergarten Teacher At Christian School Fired For Refusing To Quit Moonlighting As Porn Star – Daily Caller
.

.
A kindergarten teacher at a Christian preschool was fired for refusing to quit her lucrative side job having sex on camera.

“I love teaching and sex. If I can get away with doing both, then I will,” Nina Skye, 21, told Fox before being confronted by her bosses who tried to convince her to leave the porn industry.

Skye said she enjoyed working as a kindergarten teacher by day and a porn star by night but administrators at the unnamed preschool fired her because her side job violated the school’s religious ethics, according to the Daily Mail.

Skye, who has been featured in videos entitled “Amateur Allure” and “Swallow Salon,” said having sex was her dream job but admitted she was also motivated by the added income…

Woman Bites Store Employee While Attempting To Steal Stripper Pole – Toronto Sun

An Arkansas mall store employee is smarting after a would-be thief bit her while attempting to steal a stripper pole.

According to KATV, a woman that worked at the Spencer’s store in Little Rock’s Park Plaza Mall was attacked after a female suspect entered the store in an attempt to return an item for cash or store credit.

Cops say the employee noted the suspect looked familiar as she was believed to have previously stolen items from the store. Spencer’s manager told police the woman wanted a stripper pole instead of store credit.

Frustrated, the suspect then attempted to leave the shop with stripper pole in hand.

The Spencer’s employee gave chase, eventually recovering the pole from her. In retaliation, the alleged thief bit the employee on the upper right arm. She then fled the mall.

Cops are still searching for the suspect, who is described as a black female, standing 5-foot-3 and weighing 120 pounds with long curly black hair and brown eyes…

USDA Suspends Brazilian Fresh-Beef Imports – MarketWatch
.

.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture suspended imports of fresh beef from Brazil, citing recurring safety concerns.

The USDA’s move came after Brazil earlier Thursday suspended beef exports from five slaughterhouses to the U.S., after a foot-and-mouth disease vaccine potentially caused abscesses in some cattle, according to the national meat-exporting group Abiec.

“Although international trade is an important part of what we do at USDA, and Brazil has long been one of our partners, my first priority is to protect American consumers,” said USDA Secretary Sonny Perdue, announcing the suspension Thursday afternoon. The USDA said the block on Brazilian beef would remain in place until Brazil’s agricultural ministry “takes corrective action which the USDA finds satisfactory.”…

ISIS Leader And Mastermind Behind Massive Truck Bomb Has Been Killed In Afghanistan – Circa

The acting ISIS leader behind one of Afghanistan’s most deadly attacks was purportedly killed Thursday by Afghan forces in the eastern Tora Bora mountains, a region once made famous in the hunt for Osama Bin Laden, Afghan and Pakistani intelligence officials told Circa.

Abdul Razaq, who was known as the ISIS deputy commander and whose alias was Khalid Mansoor, was apparently killed during a fight with Afghan forces, along with two other low ranking members of the group, an ISIS commander confirmed in an audio clip obtained by Circa.

Mansoor was the operational commander of the military wing of the terrorist group’s Afghanistan branch, known as ISIS Khorasan, according to the ISIS Clip.

According to Afghan intelligence, Mansoor was the mastermind behind the truck bomb last month that killed 90 people in Kabul’s diplomatic district and wounded more than 400, including 11 Americans. It was one of the most deadly attacks since the start of the Afghan war…

How The Dems Burned $40 Mil To Lose 4 Elections And Scam Supporters – Daniel Greenfield

“It’s a bellwether for what the Democratic Party is going to be about,” Democratic National Committee boss Tom Perez boasted.

That was back in March and the Dems had just begun their frantic spending spree in Georgia’s Sixth. By the time it was over, Jon Ossoff, an awkward immature hipster who didn’t even live in the district, had raised $23.6 million and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee had burned through another $5 million. Other groups threw in around $2.6 million to achieve absolutely nothing.

$31 million had been spent and wasted on history’s most expensive congressional election. And the Dem experts congratulated themselves that they had lost by a smaller margin than in the past.

They had spent $30 million more than in their first special election in Kansas to gain a whole 1%.

Just as after their previous special election defeats, the charts and graphs came out comparing their performance to those of previous elections. Never mind that turnout differs dramatically during presidential and special elections…

After Breitbart Investigation, CNN Retracts Conspiracy Theory Hit Piece Attacking Trump, Associates Over Russian Fund – Breitbart

CNN has admitted it printed what President Donald Trump calls “very fake news” and retracted a demonstrably inaccurate hit piece on the President and his allies after a Breitbart News investigation uncovered significant inaccuracies and flaws in CNN’s work.

“On June 22, 2017, CNN.com published a story connecting Anthony Scaramucci with investigations into the Russian Direct Investment Fund,” CNN said in a statement late Friday night. “That story did not meet CNN’s editorial standards and has been retracted. Links to the story have been disabled. CNN apologizes to Mr. Scaramucci.”

The statement was sent out very late Friday evening on CNN’s Twitter account.

The retraction is a complete cave by a network that is notorious for trying to pick fights with President Trump and his allies. President Trump has identified CNN as a “very fake news” network. It comes on the heels of Breitbart News reporting on the inaccurate CNN hit piece, citing senior administration officials and sources close to Senate GOP leadership…

Senate Announces Investigation Into Loretta Lynch’s Behavior During The 2016 Election – Washington Times

The Senate Judiciary Committee has opened a probe into former Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s efforts to shape the FBI’s investigation into 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, the committee’s chairman announced Friday.

In a letter to Ms. Lynch, the committee asks her to detail the depths of her involvement in the FBI’s investigation, including whether she ever assured Clinton confidantes that the probe wouldn’t “push too deeply into the matter.”

Fired FBI Director James B. Comey has said publicly that Ms. Lynch tried to shape the way he talked about the investigation into Mrs. Clinton’s emails, and he also hinted at other behavior “which I cannot talk about yet” that made him worried about Ms. Lynch’s ability to make impartial decisions.

Mr. Comey said that was one reason why he took it upon himself to buck Justice Department tradition and reveal his findings about Mrs. Clinton last year.

The probe into Ms. Lynch comes as the Judiciary Committee is already looking at President Trump’s firing of Mr. Comey…

Oops! State Of New Hampshire Accidentally Passes Bill Legalizing Murder – Law Newz
.

The State Senate and House in New Hampshire both passed a new bill meant to protect pregnant women, but it would’ve given them a little too much protection. The bill, SB 66-FN, calls for amending the state’s criminal code to apply the first degree murder statute to the killing of fetuses after 20 weeks of pregnancy. The bill would call for more severe consequences to someone who inflicts harm on a pregnant woman, resulting in the loss of a fetus.

In order to make it clear that this does not apply to women who get abortions or doctors who legally perform them, the bill aimed to provide exemptions, but it went a little too far. The bill, as drafted, says that nothing in the statute applies to “Any act committed by the pregnant woman.”

So basically, the bill says that pregnant women can kill people and they would go unpunished…

According to a new report published by the Center for Immigration Studies, 41 percent of immigrants coming into the United States score at or below the lowest level of English literacy, a level described as “below basic” or “functional illiteracy.”

Meanwhile, 23 percent of native-born Hispanics are functionally illiterate, as are 15 percent of all native-born Americans.

Audit: 1.4 million illegals Working Under Stolen Social Security Numbers – Washington Times

Most illegal immigrants who pay taxes have stolen someone else’s legal identity, and the IRS doesn’t do a very good job of letting those American citizens and illegal immigrants know they’re being impersonated, the tax agency’s inspector general said in a new report released Thursday.

The theft creates major problems for the American citizens and legal foreign workers whose identities are stolen, and who have to deal with explaining money they never earned.

But the IRS only manages to identify half of the potentially 1.4 million people likely affected by the fraud in 2015, the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration said in its report.

“Cases of employment identity theft can cause significant burden to innocent taxpayers, including the incorrect computation of taxes based on income that does not belong to them,” said J. Russell George, the inspector general.

It’s long been a conundrum in the federal government…

Trump Effect: iPhone Manufacturer Foxconn Plans To Invest $10 Billion In U.S. Plant – Breitbart

Foxconn, the world’s largest contract electronics maker and a major Apple Inc supplier, plans to invest more than $10 billion in a display-making factory in the United States and will decide on the location of the plant next month.

The Taiwan-based firm has been eyeing U.S. investments for some time and its CEO, Terry Gou, had previously said the company hoped to spend over $7 billion to set up a display-making plant in the country – which has no panel-making industry but is the No.2 market for televisions.

Foxconn, formally known as Hon Hai Precision Industry Co, is currently considering Wisconsin, Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania and North Carolina as possible locations, Gou told reporters after the company’s annual shareholders meeting on Thursday.

“In July we will make a conclusion,” Gou said, adding the company would invest the money over five years.

Judge Declares Mistrial In Cosby Sexual Assault Case After Jury Deadlocks – Variety

More than two years after his spectacular fall from grace amid dozens of sexual assault accusations, the case that accused Bill Cosby of drugging and molesting a woman at his home outside Philadelphia in early 2004 was ruled a mistrial by the judge on Saturday morning.

Judge Steven O’Neill said on Saturday morning that the note from jury “indicates that we the jury are deadlocked on all counts.” Cosby, 79, looked subdued as the judge made the announcement after almost of week of deliberations in suburban Philadelphia. He remained seated in his courtroom chair and looked down for a bit and said nothing as he emerged from the courtroom.

Democratic Unionist Party To Spurn Tory Remainers And Back Full Brexit – Breitbart

Ulster’s Democratic Unionist Party, which is expected to prop up Theresa May’s minority government over the coming months, has spurned Tory Remainers who hoped they would force the Prime Minister to ask the EU for a so-called ‘Soft Brexit’.

According to ITV’s Robert Peston, a source within the DUP “was very keen to be quoted” as saying that his party “completely backs [May’s] vision of Brexit” – and not that of her Chancellor of the Exchequer, Philip Hammond.

While both May and Hammond campaigned for a Remain vote during the EU referendum, the Prime Minister has subsequently endorsed what supporters call a “Clean Brexit“, taking Britain out of the bloc’s Single Market and its associated Free Movement regime, as well as the Customs Union which precludes member-states from conducting an independent trade policy.

Impeach Trump’s Impeachers – Daniel Greenfield

The rush to impeach President Trump is on by an opposition party that lacks the votes, evidence or legal basis for such a move. But since when did an illegal left-wing coup need any of those things?

No Dem has been more honest about the real motive for impeachment than Congressman Ted Lieu.

“We should not give him a chance to govern,” Lieu had declared after Trump had been in office for ten days. And he predicted that, “I do believe that if we win back the House of Representatives, impeachment proceedings will be started.”

What was the basis for impeaching President Trump after ten days in office? Lieu made it clear that if the Democrats won, they would try to impeach Trump no matter what.

That’s not how things work in the United States. But the left is running America like a banana republic.

Trump Administration Rescinds DAPA Amnesty Program – Daily Caller

The Trump administration has fulfilled another one of Donald Trump’s campaign promises by rescinding the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA) program implemented under Barack Obama that could have allowed as many as five million illegal aliens with children who are citizens or lawful permanent residents to remain in the country if they met certain criteria.

DAPA was blocked by the courts from implementation, which the Department of Homeland Security cited as a reason for rescinding the program. A DHS press released said Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly signed a memorandum rescinding DAPA on Thursday because “there is no credible path forward to litigate the currently enjoined policy.”

The program had been challenged by 26 states after Obama issued it in November 2014. The Supreme Court deadlocked when ruling on the constitutionality of the program in June 2016, splitting the vote 4-4 due to the empty seat at the time left by late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia…

The White House Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney announced earlier today ‘Phase 1’ of the Trump administration’s plans for a massive government reorganization, a move meant to increase the efficiency and productivity of the federal government.

In a memo published here, Mulvaney detailed plans to rescind or modify many of the requirements placed on federal agencies by the OMB. The office’s logic is rather straightforward: far too often agencies are required to spend more time and energy complying with menial tasks, rather than spending time allocating taxpayer dollars to effectively and efficiently carry out their missions…

Leftist Terrorism Update: Powder-Filled Letters With Threatening Notes Shut Down Georgia Republican’s Neighborhood – Washington Free Beacon

Police have blocked off Georgia Republican Karen Handel’s neighborhood after reports that letters containing a white powdery substance and calling Handel a “dirty fascist” were left at homes of her neighbors.

Cops have been going from mailbox to mailbox after finding the “suspicious package,” according to local reports, which also indicate that Roswell police continue to flood to the area.

A neighborhood resident posted a picture of the contents of the envelope. She told the Washington Free Beacon that several letters were distributed and that they contained white powder. The content of the threatening letter, posted below, contains graphic language.

“Your neighbor Karen Handel is a dirty fascist cunt but I’m sure you already knew that,” the letter says, according to a picture. “Take a whiff of the powder and join her in the hospital you Bourgeoisie motherfuckers.”

DOJ Moves To Seize Leonardo DiCaprio’s Picasso, ‘Stolen’ Funds In 1MDB Case – Reuters

U.S. authorities moved on Thursday to seize a Picasso painting given to American movie star Leonardo DiCaprio and the rights to two Hollywood comedies, as they filed complaints to recover about $540 million they say was stolen from the 1Malaysia Development Berhad sovereign wealth fund.

The U.S. Justice Department filing was the latest legal action tied to alleged money laundering at the fund set up by Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak in 2009 to promote economic development. In the complaints, the department alleges more than $4.5 billion was taken from 1MDB by high-level fund officials and their associates.

“This money financed the lavish lifestyles of the alleged co-conspirators at the expense and detriment of the Malaysian people,” Kenneth Blanco, acting assistant attorney general, said in a statement. 1MDB could not be immediately reached for comment…

20 Times Violence Threatened, Used, In Wake Of Dems’ Political Collapse – WorldNetDaily

There is no doubt that politics in the United States now include a level of violence not seen in recent memory.

It comes as factions of the Democratic Party have proven unable to accept the fact their candidate for president, now twice-failed Hillary Clinton, lost a decisive election to the GOP candidate, Donald Trump, in 2016.

It means they are not able to continue pushing the nation in a far-left progressive direction, as they did over and over again under Barack Obama.

Even during the campaign, Trump supporters faced physical beatings. They continue to face violence at “resist” protests around the country even now, as those Democrats have moved over and over to deny Trump the rights of the office.

Wednesday, Republican Rep. Steve Scalise and several congressional aides were shot during baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia, as they prepared to participate in a charity game…

Trump’s New Order Will Revive Apprenticeships In America – Red Alert Politics

President Trump took steps on Thursday to move forward with his populist agenda, including getting Americans back to work and finding alternatives to an expensive four-year college degree.

The President signed an executive order during an event on Apprenticeship and Workforce of Tomorrow initiatives to expand skill-based job training programs. “We want to make sure that we have the workforce development programs we need to ensure these jobs are being filled by American workers,” Trump said during the signing ceremony.

Taxpayers spend billions on education and workforce development programs, but they still fail to teach the required skills for Americans to get full-time jobs. Trump’s reforms would allow more people to get a skill-based apprentice job for a fraction of the expense.

The Executive Order creates more flexible apprenticeship programs and allows companies, trade associations, and unions to create their own “industry-recognized apprenticeship,” approved by the Department of Labor (DOL)…

Creepy Fag Catfishes Over 100 Boys As ‘Haley’ To Get Nude Photos – New York Post

The American Left Is Talking Itself Into Violence – John Daniel Davidson

Something is wrong with the American Left. The recent spate of violent protests on college campuses has been well-documented, but the violence and intolerance championed by left-wing student activists is beginning to creep off campus and into mainstream public life.

The reason for this is straightforward enough: although progressives pride themselves on their putative tolerance and diversity, the imperatives of leftist politics are fundamentally illiberal. Justice imposed through power is the philosophical foundation of the political left, and when earnest progressives become convinced the only avenue to power is violence, their tolerance quickly falls by the wayside. Consider a few recent events, none of which involved college protesters but all of which were marked by threats of violence.

Ahead of a town hall meeting this week in Virginia’s fifth congressional district, Republican Rep. Tom Garrett received a series of disturbing threats – not just against him but also his wife and family, even his dog. One message said bluntly, “This is how we’re going to kill your wife.”…

The Next Big Lie About ObamaCare – Investors Business Daily

Health Reform: Insurers are starting to announce their ObamaCare premiums for next year and they’re at high double-digit rates. For journalists and Democratic activists (is there any difference these days?), this is the direct result of Republicans’ threat to repeal ObamaCare. But that’s not what insurance companies are telling state regulators.

Here’s how the Democrats’ story goes. After a rough start, ObamaCare was finally on the mend. Those massive rate hikes and insurance defections of last year were a thing of the past, and there was no truth to claims that ObamaCare was in a “death spiral.”

“The market is stabilizing,” Karen Pollitz of the Kaiser Family Foundation told one news outlet recently. “I think insurers are getting the hang of it.”

But all the talk of repealing and replacing ObamaCare, the story continues, now has insurers rattled. “The debate has created one thing insurers hate above everything else: uncertainty,” claims NBC News…

Yesterday the future of the coalition government was thrown into doubt after Vice Chancellor Reinhold Mitterlehner resigned, prompting calls for an election.

The two parties had clashed regularly since taking power together in 2013 and Mr Mitterlehner’s resignation looks set to be the uneasy alliance’s death knoll.

U.S. April Budget Surplus Rises To $182 Billion – Marketwatch

The federal government ran a budget surplus of $182.4 billion in April, up $76.4 billion from the same month last year, the Treasury Department said Wednesday. This is the largest April surplus since a record set in 2001.

Total receipts were $455.6 billion, up 4% from April 2016. Receipts were boosted by a change in corporate tax filing deadlines from mid-March to mid-April. Spending in the seventh month of the fiscal year was $273.2 billion, an 18% decrease from the same month last year.

April is usually a surplus month since the government receives tax payments from individuals ahead of the tax-filing deadline. The government’s budget year runs from October through September.

Through the first seven months of the year, the government is running a deficit of $344.4 billion, down 2.4% from the same period a year ago. The Congressional Budget Office estimated earlier this year that the federal government would run a budget deficit of $559 billion in fiscal 2017…

A Texas homeowner just demonstrated the proper way to deal with criminals. In a Wild West-inspired gun duel, a Texas man was able to protect himself and his property from a group of thugs who opened fire on him late last Friday.

The thugs sped onto Glenburnie Drive in their Nissan Altima and opened fire on the Texas homeowner as he sat in his front yard. The would-be murderers let loose over 40 rounds, but none of them hit their mark. The homeowner was ready for the assault, and returned fire at the speeding vehicle.

According to reporters, the Texas man was an avid shooter with a license to carry a concealed weapon. He regularly practiced marksmanship with his AR-15. His practice ultimately paid off as the homeowner was able to successfully defend himself using his trusty AR-15 shooting all three men in the moving vehicle.

Residents at three public housing areas now have a mini-fleet of free Zipcars to make their way around Sacramento.

On Friday, Sacramento launched a pilot program that put eight shared electric Kia Souls at public housing sites. Up to 300 residents can apply for on-demand access to the vehicles, with no charge for maintenance, insurance or juicing up the battery.

The program is funded through a $1.3 million grant from the California Air Resources Board using cap-and-trade funds that businesses pay to offset their carbon emissions.

Local leaders said it will provide green transportation options to disadvantaged areas where even simple tasks like getting groceries can be a challenge…

Florida Man Gets 30 Years In Prison For Running World’s Largest Child Porn Website – WISH

A Florida man who federal prosecutors said was the creator and lead administrator of what’s thought to be the world’s largest child-pornography website has been sentenced to 30 years in prison, the FBI announced Friday.

Steven W. Chase, 58, of Naples, Florida, was sentenced this week in a federal courtroom in North Carolina on multiple child-pornography and child-exploitation charges, the agency said in a news release.

Two codefendants who also were identified as administrators of the website – Michael Fluckiger, 46, of Indiana, and David Browning, 47, of Kentucky, each received 20-year prison terms earlier this year. The FBI did not provide their hometowns.

The agency said Chase created a website called Playpen in August 2014 on Tor, an open network on the internet where users can communicate anonymously through “hidden service” websites…

President Donald Trump will make the first foreign trip of his presidency this month, and it’s a real doozy. Trump will head to Saudi Arabia, Israel, and then Rome, then attend back-to-back summits for NATO in Brussels and for the G-7 in Sicily.

The trip is meant to show “’America First’ is fully compatible with American leadership in the world,” a senior administration official told reporters Thursday. The official added the trip demonstrates Trump is “willing to and has embraced his leadership role in multinational forums when they serve the interests of the American people.”

Muslim Refugees Outraged After Arizona Finds Simple Way To Get Them Out Of The State – Freedom Daily

Muslim refugees in one particularly savvy state in the nation are fleeing in large numbers to find refuge elsewhere in the U.S. after being sent there in droves from Barack Obama’s refugee program. There was nothing this place could do to prevent them from coming but residents found the perfect plan to get them to leave on their own once they got there. Now, these Muslims can’t get out of there fast enough after what they found out shortly after arrival.

The flood of migrants that infiltrated the nation in Obama’s last days in office, settled in some states more than others where they have become a big burden on residents who didn’t want them there to begin with. Arizona saw a massive influx, receiving more than their fair share into the state as part of the former president’s plan to resettle 110,000 refugees in America before President Donald Trump took office and dramatically slowed the immigration flow. Before the immigration ban went into effect, Arizona had already absorbed approximately 7,000 unvetted migrants that they didn’t know what to do with – until now…

Scottish Conservatives Enjoy Major Gains In Local Elections – Financial Times

Early local election results in Scotland suggested major gains for the Conservatives north of the border, in what the party leaders hope will provide a springboard for next month’s general election.

While Scottish Labour looked set to suffer the latest in a series of electoral drubbings – losing control of Glasgow’s council for the first time in decades – the Tories more than doubled their seats on councils where results had been announced by early afternoon on Friday.

The Scottish National party appeared on course to win the most seats of any party, but its success looked unlikely to be as emphatic as the landslides it secured in the 2015 UK general election and 2016 Scottish parliament elections.

The Tory gains seal a remarkable return for the Conservatives from Scotland’s political fringe, after they became the largest opposition group at the Holyrood parliament last year.

U.S. Lawmakers Introduce Bipartisan Resolution To End Campus Free Speech Zones – The Federalist

On many college campuses, students are limited to small “free speech zones” to exercise their First Amendment rights. Failure to remain within one of these zones can result in disciplinary action and even arrest.

On Wednesday, several members of Congress made a bipartisan effort to stop this practice, introducing a resolution that would end free speech zones and reaffirm the First Amendment on campuses. Rep. Phil Roe (R-Tenn.) introduced the resolution along with six cosponsors: Reps. Rick W. Allen (R-Ga.); Todd Rokita (R-Ind.); Glenn Grothman (R-Wisc.); Jason Lewis (R-Minn.); Bradley Byrne (R-Ala.); and Jamie Raskin (D-Md.).

“With our current political climate, it’s more crucial than ever that colleges and universities protect all First Amendment rights,” Roe said in a press release. “It is my hope through passing this resolution we will send a strong message to college campuses across the country that restrictions on freedom of speech, thought and expression are inherently at odds with the rights guaranteed by our Constitution.”…

Number Of Americans On Unemployment Hits 17-Year Low – Business Insider

New applications for U.S. jobless benefits fell more than expected last week and the number of Americans on unemployment rolls hit a 17-year low, pointing to a tightening labor market that could encourage the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates next month.

Initial claims for state unemployment benefits dropped 19,000 to a seasonally adjusted 238,000 for the week ended April 29, the Labor Department said on Thursday. The decline unwound most of the prior two weeks’ increases in applications.

Economists say claims were distorted in recent weeks by the Easter holidays and spring breaks, which occur at different dates every year, making it difficult to strip the seasonal fluctuations from the data.

Claims have now been below 300,000, a threshold associated with a healthy labor market, for 113 straight weeks. That is the longest such stretch since 1970, when the labor market was smaller. The labor market is close to full employment, with the unemployment rate at a near 10-year low of 4.5 percent…

A 1,389 Year-Old ‘Phobia’? – Raymond Ibrahim

A direct correlation exists between Western ignorance of history and Western ignorance of Islam’s “troublesome” doctrines. It is this connection that allows Islam’s apologists to get away with so many distortions and outright lies meant to shield Islam.

Take, for instance, Reza Aslan, apparently CNN’s resident “cannibal”: he recently claimed that “Islamophobia” – defined by CAIR as “unfounded fear of and hostility towards Islam” – was created by a few “clowns” in 2014.

To be sure, Western fear of Islam is something of a recent phenomenon in modern times. Because the world was a much bigger place a few decades ago, and Islam was oceans away, the average American hardly knew anything about Muhammad’s creed. However, as the world has become smaller – as Muslims have grown in numbers in Western societies, as modern technology has made it possible for the weaker to terrorize the stronger, and then broadcast it for the world to see (Internet) – so has the Western world been hearing, seeing, and experiencing more and more of Islam…

New applications for U.S. unemployment benefits recorded their biggest drop in nearly two years last week, pointing to a further tightening in the labor market.

“The lower jobless claims filings show the economy continues to show improvement which is important news with the long expansion expected to eventually tire somewhere down the line given its longevity,” said Chris Rupkey, chief economist at MUFG Union Bank in New York.

Claims have now been below 300,000, a threshold associated with a healthy labor market, for 109 straight weeks…

Muslim Dirtbag Throws Elderly Jewish Woman Out Of Apartment Window To Her Death In Paris – Gateway Pundit

In a violent attack causing trepidation amongst Paris’ Jewish community, a 66-year-old Orthodox woman, Sarah Halimi, was murdered to the cry of ‘‘Allahu Akbar’’ early Tuesday morning, pushed from the window of her top-floor apartment in Paris’ 11th arrondissement.

The accused, a 27-year-old of Muslim origin known to police for a string of offenses, had broken into the apartment of his victim – reportedly scaling the exterior wall from the floor below where he lived with his parents – to stab his victim before throwing her to her death.

The lifeless body of Ms. Halimi was found on the ground beneath her apartment, having been pushed to her death from her third story window during the attack which took place at approximately 4:30am. Three armed police were on the scene prior to the murder, according to neighbors, who also reported hearing the cry of ‘’Allahu Akbar’’ at the moment of the crime.

Unconfirmed reports circulating on social media also suggest that Ms. Halimi had previously been harassed by a relative of the accused, and that she had been subjected to verbal abuse in the days leading up to the incident…

Senate Republicans Go Nuclear On Gorsuch Nomination – Breitbart

Senate Republicans used the “constitutional option” to change longstanding cloture rules around 12:30pm Thursday, clearing the way for Judge Neil Gorsuch to receive a vote of the full Senate on his confirmation to the Supreme Court.

Republicans resorted to the party-line 52-48 vote after weeks of wrangling over Gorsuch’s nomination in which Senate Democrats threatened the first partisan filibuster of a Supreme Court nominee in American history.

After the Democrats assembled the forty-one votes needed to prevent the end of debate under current rules, the constitutional option allowing cloture on a simple majority became the only remaining path to placing Gorsuch on the Court.

GOP: Fund Border Wall With Fee On Money Transfers Immigrants Send Home – Newsmax
.

.
Republican congressmen have introduced the first bill to fund President Donald Trump’s border wall, in a proposal to place a fee on money that Mexicans and other immigrants transfer to their home countries, The Washington Times reports.

The legislation, introduced by Alabama Rep. Mike Rogers and Pennsylvania Rep. Lou Barletta, would place a 2-percent tax on remittances, money sent from people in the U.S. to relatives in their home countries.

“This bill is simple – anyone who sends their money to countries that benefit from our porous borders and illegal immigration should be responsible for providing some of the funds needed to complete the wall,” Rogers said in a statement. “The bill keeps money in the American economy, and most importantly, it creates a funding stream to build the wall.”

“We have immigration laws for two basic reasons: to preserve American jobs and to protect national security,” Barletta said in a statement. “We cannot do either if we continue to allow illegal immigrants to flow across our unsecured borders…

Epidemic Of Muslim “Refugee” Rapes Of Women In European Cities Being Covered Up – Conservative Base

While political leaders in the United States argue over Muslim refugees being brought into American cities, they may wish to hear from police chiefs in cities throughout the European Union that have opened their “gates” thousands upon thousands of Islamic refugees from Middle Eastern and Northern African nations.

According to reports from police departments in Germany, Sweden, France, Great Britain and other Western nations, rapes, sexual assaults and other sex crimes perpetrated by Muslims have reached epidemic levels.

In the aftermath of one recent series of rampant sex crimes, a police chief in the German city of Cologne, succumbed to calls for his resignation following the German public’s display of outrage and anger over the sexual assaults against German women by hundreds of Muslim men during the New Year’s Eve celebration.

The 60-year-old Cologne police chief, Wolfgang Albers, took his early retirement pension and ran amid rabid complaints that police officers failed to respond and protect almost 200 women who were harassed, threatened, groped, robbed and raped on Dec. 31, 2015…

PETA Says Milk Is A ‘Symbol Of White Supremacy’ – Heatstreet

PETA’s shenanigans vary from the absurd to the downright offensive. From likening rape survivors to pigs and cows, to calling Pokémon a form of animal cruelty, PETA’s efforts to “save the animals” always make the headlines – and with good reason: they’re completely absurd.

The animal rights group today released a new video to cry over milk, equating the nutritious drink with Nazism. Following the rise in Trump Derangement Syndrome and the progressive left’s hysteria over white supremacism, PETA states:

“Did you know that milk has long been a symbol used by white supremacists?”

It’s an alternative fact accompanied by an equally ludicrous video, which they published on social media. They call milk the neo-Nazi drink of choice, stating that it has “long been” a symbol used by white supremacist groups as a “thinly veiled allegory for racial purity.”

Washington Post Lies About Lawmaker’s Biblical Reference, Then Refuses To Quote A Single Word He Said – The Federalist

“We don’t get religion,” Baquet said. “We don’t get the role of religion in people’s lives.”

Baquet was correct: Acela corridor political reporters don’t understand religion, especially Christianity. Though he was specifically speaking about New York Times reporters, Baquet’s comments clearly also apply to the Washington Post, which on Friday morning accused a Republican congressman from Texas of claiming that the Bible forbids the unemployed from having food to eat.

The headline from the Washington Post couldn’t have been more clear: “GOP Lawmaker: The Bible says the unemployed ‘shall not eat.” Shocking, right?

Chicago Gang On YouTube Bragging About Guns, Cash, Drugs Leads To Bust – American Mirror

Swedish Feminists Flee Suburbs Due To Islamic Fundamentalists – Breitbart

Feminists in Stockholm are leaving areas like the notorious migrant-heavy no-go zones of Husby and Tensta because they say religious fundamentalists now rule those suburbs.

Nalin Pekgul is a self-described feminist and former member of parliament for the left wing Swedish Social Democrats. For over 30 years, she lived in the Stockholm suburb of Tensta but says that she no longer feels safe there. She claims Muslim fundamentalists have taken over and she doesn’t feel she can visit the centre of Tensta without being harassed, Swedish broadcaster SVT reports.

According to Ms. Pekgul, the situation for women in public life in the area has deteriorated over the past several years. She noted that there has been a rise in religious fundamentalism amongst the men in the area, many of whom come from migrant backgrounds. Pekgul attempted to combat the trend by organising coffee shop meetings but soon abandoned the idea.

Secretary Of State Tillerson Gives NATO Deadbeats Two Months To Start Contributing – Daily Caller

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was quick to avert the challenge, insisting that Canada is already doing enough for the alliance. “Canada has always been one of the handful of countries that has always been ready and capable of stepping up on important missions of participating and of punching well above their weight,” he said in Toronto on Friday.

DEA Has Seized $3.2 Billion Since 2007 From People Not Charged With Crimes – Reason

The Drug Enforcement Administration seized more than $4 billion in cash from people suspected of drug activity over the last decade, but $3.2 billion of those seizures were never connected to any criminal charges.

A report by the Justice Department Inspector General released Wednesday found that the DEA’s gargantuan amount of cash seizures often didn’t relate to any ongoing criminal investigations, and 82 percent of seizures it reviewed ended up being settled administratively – that is, without any judicial review – raising civil liberties concerns.

In total, the Inspector General reports the DEA seized $4.15 billion in cash since 2007, accounting for 80 percent of all Justice Department cash seizures. Those figures do not include other property, such as cars and electronics, which are favorite targets for seizure by law enforcement.

All of this is possible through civil asset forfeiture, which allows law enforcement to seize property if they suspect it’s connected to criminal activity, without having to file criminal charges against the owner…

Subway Caves To Muslims, Removes Ham And Bacon From Nearly 200 UK Restaurants – Daily Mail

Fast food giant Subway has removed ham and bacon from almost 200 outlets, and switched to halal meat alternatives in an attempt to please its Muslim customers.

It has confirmed turkey ham and turkey rashers will be used instead in 185 of its stores, where all the meat will now be prepared according to halal rules.

The chain, which has around 1,500 outlets across the UK, explained its decision by saying it had to balance animal welfare concerns with ‘the views of religious communities’.

Traditional halal slaughter sees animals have their throats slit before bleeding to death. But Subway stressed that the meat served in its sandwiches would come from animals that have been stunned first, a practice that aims to reduce any suffering.

In Arabic the word halal means ‘permitted’ or ‘lawful’ and defines anything that is allowed or lawful according to the Qur’an.

It is often used to indicate food – particularly meat – has been prepared in accordance with Muslim principles and techniques…

Suspected Prowler Charged With Carrying Gun Without A Permit After Pistol Falls Out Of His Buttocks – Breitbart

Officers were booking 23-year-old Jesse O’Neal Roberts into jail when a pistol fell out of his buttocks, initially giving them the impression that Roberts was defecating on himself.

The incident occurred at Alabama’s Limestone County Jail.

According to AL.com, deputies received a call “about a prowler” and arrived at the address to find Roberts being held at gunpoint by the resident. Deputy Chad Harbin said Roberts “was showing signs of impairment,” so he arrested him on public intoxication.

They drove Roberts to jail and, upon arriving, a corrections officer noted that Roberts was walking “strangely.” While Roberts was being booked a pistol fell out of his buttocks. The corrections officer recalled, “I immediately considered that he defecated on himself before noticing a familiar shape in the form of a pistol in his boxers.”

The pistol was a Jimenez .380 which had been reported as stolen. Roberts was charged with carrying a pistol without a permit, “first-degree promoting prison contraband,” and “fourth-degree receiving stolen property.”…

Top Republicans Reveal They’re Going Nuclear If Democrats Filibuster Gorsuch – Political Insider

Federal Judge Sides With President Trump, Refuses To Block Travel Ban – Daily Caller

A federal judge in Virginia ruled Friday against blocking President Trump’s executive order that called for temporarily stopping the entry of immigrants from six majority-Muslim nations and refugee admittance overall.

The decision against the injunction comes after federal judges in Maryland and Hawaii blocked the implementation of Trump’s executive order nationwide. The ruling in Maryland is set to be heard before an appeals court in May. These two past decisions keep the order at bay.

Judge Anthony Trenga of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia found that Trump was within his legal rights to impose the travel ban and that it was not discriminatory toward Muslims. The injunction had been brought forward by Palestinian activist Linda Sarsour, who was represented by an attorney from the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

Trenga, a George W. Bush appointee, wrote in his opinion that “the President has unqualified authority to bar physical entry to the United States at the border.”…

Ryancare Bill Pulled Due To Lack Of Support – Daily Signal
.

.
House Speaker Paul Ryan abruptly withdrew the GOP’s bill to repeal and replace Obamacare Friday afternoon after it became clear Republicans didn’t have the votes to pass the plan.

The news came just minutes before the lower chamber was expected to vote on the bill, called the American Health Care Act, and after Ryan, R-Wis., huddled with President Donald Trump at the White House. The bill also faced Republican opposition in the Senate.

“I don’t know what else to say, other than that Obamacare is the law of the land,” Ryan said in a press conference. “It will remain the law of the land until it’s replaced.”

Trump and Ryan spent the better part of the past two weeks trying to court conservative lawmakers and centrist Republicans, who had doubts about the proposal and planned to vote against it…

Leftist Insanity Update: Pre-School Suspends 4-Year-Old For Bringing .22 Shell Casing To Class – Hot Air

Americans have a constitutional right to bear arms. Perhaps in this day and age of confused fear of violence, some Americans like, oh, say, school teachers should have an official obligation to know a little something about firearms.

Here’s the latest chapter in scary school silliness. In deep southern Illinois this week, Kristy Jackson went to pick up her four-year-old son Hunter from pre-school. She was greeted by an extremely unhappy teacher who said the little boy had brought to school a dangerous “shotgun bullet.”

Never mind there’s no such thing. Jackson was shocked, but also puzzled because her son had just spent a bonding afternoon learning the beginnings of gun safety from his grandfather, a police officer.

The stern teacher led Hunter’s Mom to the principal’s office. There, she was handed the evidence that had condemned her son, a tiny empty .22 shell casing.

According to Jackson’s reasoned account on Facebook, she was also silently handed a piece of paper…

In the wake of an alleged brutal rape at Rockville High School in Maryland by two illegal aliens last week, Montgomery County Superintendent Dr. Jack Smith is accusing parents of racism and xenophobia. He also claims threats are being made against students and schools.

“While I know this tragic incident has become part of a national political debate, I want to remind community members that the lives of real students have been forever affected,” Smith sent in an email Thursday morning. “While many have chosen to engage civilly in the conversation, far too many have crossed the line with racist, xenophobic calls and emails. MCPS is working with law enforcement to identify those who are making threats toward our students and schools. This behavior will not be tolerated in our community.”…

California Brewery Now Making Beer Out Of Recycled Human Sewage Water – Natural News

Stone Brewing, the country’s ninth largest brewery based in Southern California, has recently introduced a beer made with treated sewage water. The company unveiled five barrels of their latest brew, called Full Circle pale ale, at an event Thursday last week to the approval of curious customers. The craft beer was made with 100% recycled water from San Diego’s Pure Water demonstration plant in Miramar.

“This particular water will just help us not require so much natural water to come in and give us a more reliable source. So for us to be able to reuse, that’s part of our mantra, that’s part of what we do,” said Stone Brewing’s chief operating officer Pat Tiernan.

The recycled water used in the beer only required some salts prior to the brewing process. The craft beer was made with three malts and three hops. Full Circle features a clean beer taste with a hint of caramel and tropical fruit notes. Full Circle is currently not available to the public…

Trump Approves TransCanada’s Keystone XL Pipeline – Zero Hedge
.

It’s official: moments ago TransCanada said the U.S. Department of State issued a presidential permit for the construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline, ending a multi-year controversial, at times acrimonious debate over the future of the pipeline.

The pipeline linking Canadian oil sands to U.S. refiners had been blocked by Barack Obama, who said the pipeline would do nothing to reduce fuel prices for U.S. motorists and would contribute emissions linked to global warming.

“This is a significant milestone for the Keystone XL project,” said Russ Girling, TransCanada’s president and chief executive officer, said in a statement. “We greatly appreciate President Trump’s administration for reviewing and approving this important initiative and we look forward to working with them as we continue to invest in and strengthen North America’s energy infrastructure.”…

Leftist Immigration Lawyer Sentenced To 15 Months In Prison For Asylum Scam – Breitbart

A federal judge sentenced an Illinois immigration lawyer who cheated the immigration system to make sure his clients were granted asylum in the U.S. to 15 months in prison Wednesday.

Prosecutors say Robert Dekelaita, who called himself “Robin Hood” for refugees, would forge the names of his clients seeking asylum on application papers and fabricate their life stories with horrific anecdotes of kidnappings, bombings, and religious persecution that were all false, drawing inspiration from news stories he collected, CBS Chicago reported.

U.S. District Judge Matthew Kennelly sentenced Dekelaita to 15 months in prison for conspiracy to commit asylum fraud a year after Dekelaita was convicted, noting that even if he broke the law with noble intentions, he would “have to be willing to pay the price for it.”

Kennelly encouraged Dekelaita, 54, of Glenview, to file a motion to remain free while he appeals his conviction…

Muslim Arrested For Trying To Drive Car Loaded With Liquid Gas, Assault Rifle, Knives Into Crowd In Antwerp, Belgium – Daily Mail

A French -Tunisian has been arrested after trying to drive a car loaded with liquid gas, assault rifles and knives into a crowd of shoppers in Antwerp in an attempted terror attack.

Belgian police, who confirmed the bomb squad had been sent to the area, said the car was being driven at high speed and that pedestrians had to jump out of the way to avoid being injured.

Authorities found knives, a shotgun and a gas can with an unknown liquid in the car prompting officers who usually deal with extremist attacks to take over the case.

It comes just hours after three people were killed in London by a terrorist who mowed down pedestrians and cyclists outside the House of Commons before stabbing a policeman to death.

Belgian police arrested a man named as Mohamed R, 39, on Thursday after he tried to drive into a crowd at high-speed in a shopping area in the port city of Antwerp at around 11am.

The suspect, who has not been confirmed as a Muslim but is named after the religion’s prophet and is said to be of North African descent, was wearing camouflage when he was arrested…

Saiani only takes one daily blood pressure pill. Beyond that, he cooks with olive oil, makes himself a nightly vodka and tonic, and doesn’t stress about getting old.

“I just don’t think about how old I am. I really don’t. It doesn’t bother me,” he said.

Israeli-American Teen Arrested For Anti-Semitic Hate Crime Hoax Spree – Breitbart

Israeli authorities have arrested a 19-year-old suspect in connection with dozens of hoax bomb threats to Jewish community centers in the United States and around the world. ABC News reports that the unnamed suspect is a dual U.S.-Israel citizen.

Other reports indicate that the suspect is Jewish.

The arrest was “part of an ongoing international investigation that has been taking place for several months with other police and security agencies in America and Europe,” Arutz Sheva reports.

Israeli police spokesman Mickey Rosenfeld said the suspect was “the guy who was behind the [Jewish Community Center] threats,” according to CBS News’ New York affiliate. The threats were also made in Europe, Australia, and New Zealand, as well as the U.S.

Eco-Terrorists Burn Holes In Dakota Access Pipeline – Washington Times

The next activists who try to burn a hole through the Dakota Access pipeline may find that carbon pollution is the least of their problems.

The $3.8 billion project is expected to begin running oil this week, as authorities investigate two separate incidents of vandalism in Iowa and South Dakota involving holes torched in pipes located at above-ground valve sites.

No oil was flowing through the pipes, but if there had been, the consequences could have been disastrous, said Brigham A. McCown, former acting administrator of the Pipeline & Hazardous Materials Safety Administration.

“If they had tried to utilize a torch to burn through the sidewall, they would have likely ignited the oil inside and been killed instantly,” said Mr. McCown, now an infrastructure consultant. “This is a serious safety issue and cannot be justified under any basis. Those responsible should face severe criminal penalties.”…

A new WikiLeaks Vault 7 leak titled “Dark Matter” claims, with unreleased documents, that the Central Intelligence Agency has been bugging “factory fresh” iPhones since at least 2008.

Today, March 23rd 2017, WikiLeaks releases Vault 7 “Dark Matter”, which contains documentation for several CIA projects that infect Apple Mac Computer firmware (meaning the infection persists even if the operating system is re-installed) developed by the CIA’s Embedded Development Branch (EDB)…

Aussie Veterans Pissed After PC-Nazism Infects Sacred War Memorial – Heatstreet

Mateship. It’s a term that embodies loyalty, solidarity and camaraderie, so why are people finding this sign so offensive?

A sign along the Kokoda Track, a sacred military site in Papua New Guinea, has long been etched with the word “mateship” but it has now been changed to “friendship”, causing fury among Australian war veterans.

As we lead up to the 75th anniversary of the Kokoda Track campaign, part of the Pacific War of WWII, veterans feel as though they’re forgotten as “mateship” disappears from the memorial sign at the Kokoda Track’s Owers Corner.

The memorial was to describe the “mateship” between the Australian and Papua New Guinean military.

Veterans are concerned the change in the sign, which is one of four memorial signs on the Kokoda Track – courage, mateship, endurance, sacrifice – could take away from the trail’s military history…

Fake News: AP Touts Anti-Trump Poll With Warped Demographics Conducted By Soros-Backed Organization – Breitbart

The Associated Press on Monday released a news making story with a glaring headline claiming that “Most young Americans don’t see Trump as a legitimate leader.”

A closer look at the survey finds it was conducted by a group financed by billionaire George Soros whose activist arm demands reparations for slavery and “mass incarceration,” and has engaged in anti-police activism.

In addition, the survey was not representative of the racial and ethnic profiles of young adults. Instead it focused heavily on demographic samples of populations that voted overwhelmingly against Donald Trump.

The AP story, which was published in major news media outlets, claimed a “majority of young adults – 57 percent – see Trump’s presidency as illegitimate, including about three-quarters of blacks and large majorities of Latinos and Asians, the GenForward poll found.”…

House Ready To Change Health Care Bill After Learning Senate Rules Might Let Them Repeal More Of ObamaCare – Hot Air

A good time to familiarize yourself with critical procedural rules in the other chamber while you’re trying to pass the most momentous bill of Trump’s presidency is obviously the night before you bring it to the floor, I think we can all agree.

I mentioned the reconciliation problem in this morning’s post. The GOP’s dilemma, and the reason for the weird “three stage” repeal that Trump and Ryan keep mentioning, is that they can only use the 51-vote reconciliation process in the Senate to repeal budgetary provisions. Anything that doesn’t count as “budgetary” – like the regulations that set forth ObamaCare’s “enhanced health benefits” (EHBs) – must be excluded and repealed separately, either by Tom Price rescinding those regs via an HHS order or by the GOP somehow finding 60 votes in the Senate for a second bill that would repeal them…

Hackers Threaten To Wipe Up To 300 Million iPhones Unless Apple Pays Ransom – Metro

A mysterious group of hackers claim to be threatening to wipe up to 300 million iPhones and iCloud accounts – unless Apple pays a ransom in Bitcoin by April 7.

The group – who describe themselves as ‘Turkish Crime Family’ – claim to have demanded $75,000 in Bitcoin or Ethereum cryptocurrency, according to Motherboard.

A hacker said, ‘I just want my money and thought this would be an interesting report that a lot of Apple customers would be interested in reading and hearing.’

They claim to have credentials which would allow them access to hundreds of millions of users’ accounts, according to the report in Motherboard – and are threatening to wipe a number of them unless they are paid.

Screenshots of supposed discussions with Apple show Apple’s security team requesting that the gang delete a YouTube video where they supposedly access an elderly woman’s iCloud account.

The vehicle then crashed into railings just yards from the Houses of Parliament and the attacker was seen running through the gates of the Palace of Westminster with a knife. He reportedly stabbed a policeman before being shot by armed officers.

Paramedics fought to save his life and that of his victim on the floor of the cobbled courtyard just yards from the House of Commons. Both the policeman are the attacker were later confirmed dead.
