Florida Drug Dealer Arrested After Calling 911 To Report Stolen Cocaine – Washington Times
.

.
Florida police officers made a quick arrest last weekend when 35-year-old David Blackmon called 911 to report his stash of cocaine missing.

Charges of resisting arrest without violence and possession of cocaine were levied July 16 against Mr. Blackmon after the Fort Walton man reported the theft of $50 and his drugs, the Miami Herald reported Wednesday. Okaloosa Sheriff’s officials shared the story on Facebook.

“He told a deputy who responded that he was a drug dealer and that someone had broken into his vehicle while it was parked, taking about $50 and a quarter ounce of cocaine,” the newspaper reported.

Authorities said the responding officer “spotted cocaine” within the vehicle and “a crack rock on the center console,” although no cash was found…

Detroit: Immigrant Steals $132 Million From Medicare, Owns $7 Million Mansion – 100PercentFedUp

A health care executive cheated Medicare out of $132 million and blew the money on a $7 million Franklin mansion and courtside NBA tickets, and stuffed secret storage units with cash, prosecutors allege.

Federal court records and prosecutors provided new details about the inner workings and riches of a health-care fraud conspiracy that ranks among the largest in Detroit history, orchestrated by 37-year-old businessman Mashiyat Rashid.

Prosecutors say the conspiracy involved recruiting homeless people as patients, sending phony bills to Medicare, subjecting drug addicts to unnecessary back injections and prescribing powerful pain medication that ended up being sold on the street.

The conspiracy generated so much money that Rashid withdrew $500,000 from a bank this month and stuffed the cash in a duffel bag, the government said. A surveillance team of federal agents watched him enter and leave the bank…

Texas Allows Open Carry Of Knives And Swords – Washington Standard
.

.
In a move that gets closer to actually recognizing the right of the people to keep and bear arms of all kinds, the state of Texas has advanced a bill into law that will recognize the right of citizens to carry knives or swords with blades that are longer than 5 1/2 inches in public.

After September 1, 2017, if you are carrying anything from a small dagger to a long sword in public, you will not be violating any laws, as it should be.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed House Bill 1935 into law, which removes the restrictions regarding knife blades being carried in public by adults.

“What this law does is it gets rid of all that grey area and simplifies the law,” said AJ Postell, co-founder of Lone Star Gun Rights. “The way the law currently is is that any knife with a blade length over 5 ½ inches is prohibited…

Feds Issued $171 Million In Improper Payments To People With More Than One Social Security Number – Washington Free Beacon

The Social Security Administration issued nearly $200 million in improper payments by paying people twice for their benefits.

The inspector general for the agency found that individuals with more than one Social Security Number received $171 million, according to a new audit. In many cases, the payments were issued to SSNs held by deceased individuals.

“We identified more than 5,000 instances where, contrary to Agency policy, SSA appeared to simultaneously issue monthly [Old-Age, Survivors and Disability Insurance] OASDI benefits and/or SSI payments to individuals under both of their cross-referred SSNs,” the inspector general said.

“We also identified over 13,000 instances where SSA continued paying beneficiaries after it recorded death information on their cross-referred SSNs,” the inspector general said.

Approximately 4.9 million people have more than one SSN. Individuals who are victims of identity fraud can receive a new SSN, though they are not entitled to receive benefits under both numbers…

Leftist Douchebag Who Managed To Get Elected To Congress Calls For Statue Of Liberty On Southern Border – American Mirror

As Republicans make moves to protect the southern border from illegal immigration, a member of Congress has a different idea: build another Statue of Liberty, instead.

During a U.S. House Homeland Security hearing on Tuesday, New York Democratic Rep. José Serrano said instead of building a wall, America should send a different signal: come as you are.

“This country should never build a wall to keep people out,” Serrano said.

“On the contrary, build another Statute of Liberty on the southern border. That’s our message to the world, that statute, not the wall,” he said…

RNC Raises $13.4 Million In Record-Setting June Haul – The Hill

The Republican National Committee (RNC) raised a record $13.4 million in June, bringing its total 2017 fundraising to $75.3 million.

In a release provided first to The Hill, the RNC announced another strong monthly haul and has $44.7 million in the bank. It’s the most the RNC has raised in June of a nonpresidential year.

RNC Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel credited the record fundraising to the committee’s “loyal network of grassroots donors” due to their support for President Trump and the GOP’s agenda.

“Because of the generous contributions, the RNC will continue to promote conservative values while bolstering our efforts to support, defend, and elect more Republicans,” McDaniel said in a statement.

President Trump Reverses Obama’s Anti-Christian Refugee Policy – Front Page

After declaring that Christians have “been horribly treated” by the refugee program under former President Barack Obama, President Donald Trump has reversed the Obama administration’s disgraceful discrimination against Christian refugees.

According to a Pew Research Center analysis of U.S. State Department refugee data, during the period from January 21, 2017 – President Trump’s first full day in office – through June 30, “9,598 Christian refugees arrived in the U.S., compared with 7,250 Muslim refugees. Christians made up 50% of all refugee arrivals in this period, compared with 38% who are Muslim.”

From April through June 2017, Iraq was “the only Muslim-majority nation among the top six origin countries.” The number of Syrian refugees admitted to the U.S. from January 21, 2017 through June 30, 2017 was 1779. Comparing the number of refugee admissions from Syria for the entire month of January with the entire month of February 2017, the number dropped by nearly half. By June 2017, the number of refugees admitted from Syria was about 26 percent of the already low number of 673 admitted in February…

Congress Grants Permanent U.S. Residency To Charlie Gard – Daily Caller

Charlie Gard has reportedly been granted permanent resident status in the U.S. thanks to an amendment passed by Congress.

Congress passed an amendment granting “permanent resident status to Charlie Gard and family so Charlie can get the medical treatment he needs,” Nebraska Republican Rep. Jeff Fortenberry of Nebraska tweeted Tuesday.

Permanent U.S. residency for Gard would mean his parents, Connie Yates and Chris Gard, would not need permission from U.K. doctors to fly him to America for treatment.

Born a little less than a year ago, Gard suffers from a faulty gene that has left him unable to move or breath on his own.

“I Won’t Let Myself Be Fucked”: French Armed Forces Chief Resigns After Clashing With Limp-Wristed Macron – Zero Hedge

ICE Adding Officers In ‘Uncooperative Jurisdictions’ To Arrest Criminal Aliens Released By Leftist Traitors – Breitbart

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) executives are reallocating resources to increase enforcement efforts in “uncooperative jurisdictions” where criminal aliens are released back onto the streets by local jail officials.

Acting ICE Director Thomas D. Homan said he is going to deploy more officers and agents to “sanctuary cities” to arrest illegal criminals, the Washington Examiner reported. In an interview with the Examiner, praised the focus on law enforcement from President Donald Trump saying, “What this president has done is taken the handcuffs off of law enforcement officers who are charged with enforcing immigration laws.”

As Seth J. Frantzman wrote in the Jerusalem Post last December, “They hate the very society they have often chosen to migrate to. Their new society tolerated their intolerance and taught them that this new country provided such unfettered freedom that it should be destroyed.”

Trump Sends Feds In To Raid New York’s Islamberg After 2 Decades, Uncovers America’s Worst Nightmare – Freedom Daily

There’s a mysterious hidden Muslim compound called Islamberg that’s nestled deep within the woods of the Catskill mountains in New York. The only way to access the 70-acre compound is through primitive dirt roads, where more than 100 Muslims live in seclusion away from the prying eyes of curious Americans.

For over two decades, infidels have been prohibited from entering, as anyone attempting to enter will be “greeted” by armed Muslims patrolling a guard shack at the compound’s entry gate. Without access to the compound, there’s been no way to confirm rumors about the location being used as a training ground for Muslim terrorists. But after an alarming incident involving one of the Islamberg residents, police were finally able to obtain a warrant and raid the place. And what they discovered that these Muslims have been quietly plotting for years is nothing short of chilling.

For over two decades, this cult-like group of Sharia Law-following Muslims have lived quietly under the guidance of Pakistani Sheikh Syed Mubarik Ali Shah Gilani, a radical Muslim with known ties to Jamaat al-Fuqra, a terror organization responsible for a long list of terrorist activities around the world, including murders of rival religious figures in the United States…

Government Thieves Go Wild Stealing Your Stuff – WorldNetDaily

The U.S. Supreme Court has been asked to stop governments in Michigan from collecting overdue property taxes by confiscating the property, selling it and keeping the entire profit.

Lawyers for the plaintiffs, who want back the difference between their taxes owed and what the government got for their properties, warn that similar scenarios are arising in a handful of other states.

WND reported in March an appeals court decided 2-1 based on jurisdictional issues that it could not order the return of the $190,000 profit Van Buren County made when it confiscated a church’s camp property for nonpayment of taxes.

Two other plaintiffs, each of whom lost smaller parcels, are joining Wayside Church in being represented by Pacific Legal Foundation.

First Statewide Bicycle Tax In Nation Leaves Bike-Crazy Oregon Riders Deflated – Washington Times

In Oregon, a state known for its avid bicycling culture, the state Legislature’s approval of the first statewide bike tax in the nation has fallen flat with riders.

BikePortland publisher Jonathan Maus called it “an unprecedented step in the wrong direction.”

“We are taxing the healthiest, most inexpensive, most environmentally friendly, most efficient and most economically sustainable form of transportation ever devised by the human species,” Mr. Maus said…

House Unveils Balanced Budget That Increases GDP To 2.6% – Washington Free Beacon

The House Budget Committee unveiled its Building A Better America 2018 budget Tuesday, which is balanced and achieves a $9 billion surplus in 10 years and increases GDP growth to 2.6 percent.

“Our budget is one of sustainability, smaller government, stronger national security, and greater freedom for individuals,” the committee states. “The status quo is unsustainable spending, higher deficits and debt, higher taxes, bigger government, and more federal control over the lives of Americans.”

The budget not only balances within a decade, but aims to increase economic growth by implementing tax reform and reducing government regulations, as well as reforming several government programs to ensure taxpayer dollars are used efficiently and appropriately.

The committee notes that under the Obama administration, federal spending grew at a rate that increased the debt to unprecedented levels. They found that if spending continued along this path, in the next 10 years there would be $9.4 trillion more added to the debt…

Illegal Alien Who Snuck Into U.S. 7 Times Was Drunk During Deadly Crash, Prosecutor Says – Fox News

An illegal immigrant who sneaked into the United States from Mexico seven times was driving drunk and speeding down a Nebraska highway when he crashed his van last week, killing a passenger sitting in the back of the vehicle, prosecutors said.

Douglas County prosecutors said in court Tuesday Nemias Garcia-Velasco, 32, was deported in 2009 and 2011 and “voluntarily returned” to Mexico five times in 2005, the Omaha World-Herald reported. He was convicted of making a false claim to U.S. citizenship in 2005.

Garcia-Velasco’s bail was set at $2 million. Prosecutor Ryan Lindberg in court on Tuesday requested a high bail for the illegal immigrant because he feared the man might flee the country – again.

“If this is someone who bonds out, I don’t think we’ll see Mr. Garcia-Velasco again,” Lindberg said.

“Canada Is In Serious Trouble” Again, And This Time It’s For Real – Zero Hedge

Some time ago, Deutsche Bank’s chief international economist, Torsten Slok, presented several charts which showed that “Canada is in serious trouble” mostly as a result of its overreliance on its frothy, bubbly housing sector, but also due to the fact that unlike the US, the average household had failed to reduce its debt load in time.

Additionally, he demonstrated that it was not just the mortgage-linked dangers from the housing market (and this was before Vancouver and Toronto got slammed with billions in “hot” Chinese capital inflows) as credit card loans and personal lines of credit had both surged, even as multifamily construction was at already record highs and surging, while the labor market had become particularly reliant on the assumption that the housing sector would keep growing indefinitely, suggesting that if and when the housing market took a turn for the worse, or even slowed down as expected, a major source of employment in recent years would shrink.

Fast forward to today, when the trends shown by Slok two years ago have only grown more acute, with Canada’s household debt continuing to rise, its divergence with the US never been greater…

Democrats At FEC Keep Accepting Foreign-Funded Trips – Daily Caller

Democrats on America’s top election oversight agency have regularly accepted lavish junkets funded by foreign governments and organizations.

Since 2002, the Federal Election Commission’s three Democratic members took at least 50 official trips during their combined time serving on the agency, according to documents obtained from public records and Freedom of Information Act requests. Expenses related to the trips were paid by a combination of foreign groups, governments, and by U.S. taxpayers through the agency’s own budget.

According to the records, which come from the Office of Governmental Ethics and FEC records published by The Hill’s Rudy Takala, none of the FEC’s three Republican commissioners have ever taken a single agency-related international trip while serving on the commission.

The terrorist group, which recently lost its Iraqi stronghold of Mosul, said it will soon announce a successor to Baghdadi…

U.S. Conducts Successful THAAD Missile Defense Test In Alaska – The Hill

The U.S. missile defense system known as THAAD successfully shot down an intermediate-range ballistic missile during a test on Tuesday, the Missile Defense Agency said.

“This test further demonstrates the capabilities of the THAAD weapon system and its ability to intercept and destroy ballistic missile threats,” MDA Director Lt. Gen. Sam Greaves said in a statement. “THAAD continues to protect our citizens, deployed forces and allies from a real and growing threat.”

The test of the system has been planned for months, but took on new significance after North Korea successfully tested an intercontinental ballistic missile last week.

Tuesday’s successful test of THAAD, which stands for Terminal High Altitude Area Defense, was the first time the system has been tested on an intermediate-range ballistic missile (IRBM)…

U.S. officials were investigating on Tuesday the cause of a military transport plane crash that killed 16 service members a day earlier, leaving a five-mile trail of wreckage in rural northern Mississippi.

The KC-130 Hercules aircraft disappeared from air traffic control radar over Mississippi after taking off from Cherry Point, North Carolina. It plunged into a field at approximately 4 p.m. CDT (5 p.m. EST) on Monday in Mississippi’s LeFlore County, about 100 miles (160 km) north of Jackson, the state capital.

Fifteen Marines and one Navy sailor were onboard, the U.S. Marine Corps said. The names of the deceased were being withheld until family members were notified. Further details on the crash were not released by military officials, but Gen. Robert Neller, Commandant of the Marine Corps, pledged “a thorough investigation into the cause of this tragedy.”…

Canadian Landlord Fined $12,000 For Not Taking Shoes Off In Muslim Tenant’s Home – Fox News

A Canadian landlord who was fined $12,000 for wearing shoes in a Muslim tenant’s home said he felt “humiliated” by the harsh penalty levied by a national human rights tribunal.

In an interview with the Toronto Sun, John Alabi, 52, of Brampton, recounted how he went above and beyond trying to accommodate the Egyptian-born couple who lived in the apartment for two months – just to be slapped with a steep fine for the shoe incident.

“I go beyond all that. I just see everybody as human beings like me. That’s why I took them in,” Alabi told the Toronto Sun in May. “We got along. And then all of a sudden I’m a racist?”

The Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario ordered Alabi in April to pay the tenants $6,000 each after he failed to take his shoes off in the bedroom were the couple prayed while he was showing the home to potential renters. The couple, who moved into first floor of the home in December 2014, terminated their lease on Feb. 28, 2015.

The tribunal also said Alabi “harassed” the couple and “created a poisoned housing environment.”…

Sarin Unaccounted For At U.S. Army’s Dugway Proving Ground – Zero Hedge

A new internal US Army investigation found that the most deadly chemical and biological agents known to man were improperly handled and tracked at the Army’s Dugway Proving Ground. Dugway was the focus of international headlines in a 2015 investigation which found that “egregious safety failures” over the period of a decade resulted in the shipping of live anthrax spores to 194 laboratories located in 50 states and nine foreign countries via commercial shipping companies like FedEx.

At the time of the 2015 scandal, over two dozen personnel at Dugway were treated for potential anthrax exposure, and an Army review board disciplined ten civilian and military overseers, which included “career-killing” reprimands of the base commander, Brig. Gen. William King.

Senate GOP Eyes Obamacare Repeal Vote Next Week – The Hill

Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) said on Monday that Senate Republicans want to roll out a new draft of their bill to repeal and replace ObamaCare as soon as this week, with a vote next week.

“We’re just trying to get a good picture of what the alternatives are, and hopefully next week we’ll be prepared to take the bill up and vote on it,” the No. 2 Senate Republican told reporters.

He added that Republicans are still waiting to hear back from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) but could release an updated draft of their bill by the end of the week.

A Senate GOP aide said senators are expected to get briefed on revisions that have been made to the bill at Tuesday’s lunch, and revised text of the bill could be released later this week.

Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) earlier on Monday told CNBC he believed that a bill might be floated as early as Monday.

Cornyn’s comments come as Senate GOP leadership scrambles to figure out a way forward on its bill to repeal and replace ObamaCare. The Texas Republican pushed back against suggestions that they cancel the August recess or delay leaving town at the end of July…

Two Million More People Lost Insurance Under Obamacare In Second Quarter Of 2017 – Breitbart

A new Gallup/Sharecare poll shows that two million more Americans are without insurance this year, with the number of uninsured rising to 11.7 percent in the second quarter of 2017, up from 10.9 percent in the second quarter of 2016.

The poll stated that 10.9 percent uninsured was a record low over the period from 2008 to 2017.

The story about the poll also noted that the highest percentage of uninsured Americans was in 2013 – at 18 percent – before the Obamacare insurance exchanges opened.

However, also starting in 2014, people who did not buy health insurance faced penalties enforced by the IRS.

“Several marketplace factors could be contributing to the uptick in the uninsured rate since the second half of 2016. Rising insurance premiums could be causing some Americans to forgo insurance, especially those who fail to qualify for federal subsidies,” the pool article stated. “Furthermore, some insurance companies are leaving the ACA marketplace, and the lack of competition could be driving up the cost of plans for consumers.”…

China’s National Petroleum Corporation Suspends Fuel Sales To North Korea – Reuters

China National Petroleum Corp has suspended sales of fuel to North Korea over concerns the state-owned oil company won’t get paid, as pressure mounts on Pyongyang to rein in its nuclear and missile programmes, three sources told Reuters.

It’s unclear how long the suspension will last. A prolonged cut would threaten critical supplies of fuel and force North Korea to find alternatives to its main supplier of diesel and gasoline, as scrutiny of China’s close commercial ties with its increasingly isolated neighbour intensifies.

CNPC and the Ministry of Commerce did not respond to requests for comment. North Korea’s embassy in Beijing declined to comment.

Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Lu Kang, asked about the sale suspension and whether the Chinese government put pressure on CNPC to make this decision, said: “I do not understand this situation you are talking about” and declined to elaborate.

A source with direct knowledge of the matter said CNPC decided to put fuel sales on hold “over the last month or two” and described it as a “commercial decision”…

That’s right; a left-wing Bernie supporter tried to assassinate a Republican politician and the media’s reaction was to blame the victim.

‘Concerning’ Amounts Of Fecal Bacteria Found In Drinks Sold At UK’s Top Three Coffee Chains – RT

Traces of fecal bacteria have been found in drinks sold by Britain’s three major coffee chains, a BBC investigation has found.

Senate Republicans Delay Vote On Craptastic Healthcare Bill Until After July 4th Recess – Daily Caller

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced Tuesday that the Senate will delay the vote on its version of Obamacare repeal until after the July 4 recess.

The Senate released a revised healthcare bill Monday that takes out the individual mandate and replaces it with a penalty for people who go without insurance. If the Senate passes the bill, people who choose to go without insurance for over 63 days will have a six-month waiting period imposed upon them before they can reenroll in the individual insurance market.

The Congressional Budget Office expected that some 22 million people would lose insurance by 2026.

The House bill, passed in early May, was originally expected to leave 24 million people without insurance, but was later amended to 23 million. The Senate’s version, after weeks of debate, is only anticipated to save an additional 1 million of the expected loss in the insurance market.

19th Obamacare Co-Op Folds, Leaving Only 4 Operating In 2018 – Washington Free Beacon

The company cited issues with Obamacare’s risk-adjustment program, which is the program that shifts money away from those with healthier customers to those with sicker enrollees. Minuteman Health said that the negative impact of this program had been “substantial.”

“Unfortunately, the program has not worked as intended,” the company said. “It has been difficult for insurers to predict their risk-adjustment obligations, which has led some to withdraw from the ACA market.”

“The program also unfairly penalizes issuers like MHI that are small, low cost, and experience high growth,” the company said. “The significant relative impact from risk adjustment has been the principal driver of a reduction in MHI’s surplus and capital over 2 [sic] time.”…

Study: Seattle’s Minimum Wage Increase Goes Horribly Wrong – Washington Examiner

Seattle’s hotly-disputed $15-an-hour minimum wage law is reportedly hurting the exact people it was supposed to help.

That’s an earnings decline of $1,500 per year.

Several employers have reduced their payrolls, the study reported, adding that others have cut employee hours or the size of their staff.

The city enacted the first phase of the Seattle Minimum Wage Ordinance in 2015, raising the minimum wage from $9.47 to $11 per hour. It enacted the second phase in 2016, which boosted the minimum to $13 per hour for larger employers. Its eventual plan is to see that amount boosted all the way to $15 per hour…

Google Fined A Record €2.4 Billion For Skewing Search Results In European Antitrust Ruling – Zero Hedge
.

.
Google suffered a major regulatory blow on Tuesday, when the EU’s antitrust regulator fined Alphabet’s Google a record €2.42 billion ($2.71 billion) fine for “abusing its dominance in search” and favoring its own comparison-shopping service in search results: a decision with far-reaching implications for both the tech sector and already strained transatlantic relations.

The EU further ordered the search giant to apply the same methods to rivals as its own when displaying their services in search results.

Margrethe Vestager, the EU’s competition commissioner, said Google “denied other companies the chance to compete” and left consumers without “genuine choice.”

Google’s strategy for its comparison shopping service wasn’t just about attracting customers by making its product better than those of its rivals…

Leftist Democrats Using Sham Lawsuits To Try And Obstruct, Impeach Trump – Daily Signal

Nearly 200 Democratic politicians – 198 in total – are now plaintiffs in two lawsuits against President Donald Trump.

The claims they raise are substantially similar to those made in a separate lawsuit brought by the advocacy group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), which was filed against Trump in January.

All three groups of plaintiffs claim Trump is violating the Foreign Emoluments Clause and the President’s Compensation Clause of the U.S. Constitution because, like many presidents before him, he owns assets that continue to earn profits while he is president.

But these “emoluments” lawsuits have another commonality: They all advance the campaign of liberal groups and the Democrat Party to “resist” and ultimately impeach the president.

Two points make that clear: The meaning of the word emoluments as it appears in the U.S. Constitution, and the origin of the present “emoluments” debate…

Nearly 30% Of Illegal Alien Children Held At Border Have Ties To MS-13 Or Other Gangs – Washington Times

Nearly 30 percent of the illegal immigrant children the U.S. is holding in its dormitories have ties to criminal gangs, the government revealed Wednesday, suggesting that the Obama-era surge of Central Americans has fed the country’s growing problem with MS-13 and other gangs.

Federal officials refused even to guess at the true scope of the problem, telling the Senate Judiciary Committee that they can give only small snapshots of what they see. But they said the devastation on communities across the country is clear: killings and chaos, particularly among other immigrants – both legal and illegal.

The Border Patrol identified 160 teens who were known or suspected gang members when they first showed up at the border, but whom the Obama administration said it had to admit under U.S. law…

Minneapolis Installs Shariah Hotline For ‘Hate Speech’ Snitches – WorldNetDaily

The city of Minneapolis has set up a hotline for residents to report suspected hate crimes, including “speech and actions,” according to statements on the city’s website.

According to the local newspaper, the Star-Tribune, “the announcement comes amid signs of a recent surge of such incidents affecting Muslims and Jews across the country, many of which go unreported.”

The city’s Department of Civil Rights clearly states on its website that it only enforces hate crimes against certain “protected classes.”

CNN: Man Who Stabbed Cop At Michigan Airport ‘Said Something In Arabic’ – Chicks On The Right

Senate Republicans Release ObamaCare Repeal Bill – The Hell

Senate Republican leaders on Thursday released a draft of their long-awaited ObamaCare repeal-and-replace bill ahead of a high-stakes vote expected next week.

The measure includes deep cuts to Medicaid and fundamentally reshapes that program from an open-ended government commitment to a system of capped federal payments that limit federal spending.

The bill repeals billions of dollars in taxes that were used to raise money for ObamaCare’s coverage expansion and also abolishes the law’s mandates to buy coverage.

The tax credits under ObamaCare to help people buy private coverage would be kept but reshaped so that they are less generous and cost the government less money.

“It’s time to act because ObamaCare is a direct attack on the middle class and American families deserve better than it’s failing status quo,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Thursday…

As Many As 5.7 Million Non-Citizens Voted In 2008 Election – Washington Times

A research group in New Jersey has taken a fresh look at postelection polling data and concluded that the number of noncitizens voting illegally in U.S. elections is likely far greater than previous estimates.

As many as 5.7 million noncitizens may have voted in the 2008 election, which put Barack Obama in the White House.

Those are the conclusions of the Profiling Project, which released the results of a months-long investigation into Rich’s death on Tuesday.

House Passes Bill Expanding Tax Incentives For Nuclear Power Plants – Washington Examiner

The House passed legislation on Tuesday to expand the use of tax incentives for new nuclear power plants well into the next decade.

The bipartisan nuclear tax bill passed by voice vote, and had 32 co-sponsors at the time it was approved.

“Without this legislation, the nuclear power industry may cease to exist as we know it in this country, which is exactly why passing this bill now is more important than ever,” said Rep. Tom Rice, R-S.C., a lead sponsor of the bill. “We need to give these plants the certainty of these tax credits, just as Congress intended.”

The southeast, where Rice is from, is one of the only regions of the country that is building new nuclear power plants, as the nation’s aging fleet of older plants continues to face economic and market constraints that are forcing them to shut down prematurely.

The bill removes a restriction for nuclear power plants to enter into service by 2020 in order to benefit from the production tax credit, which subsidizes the electricity generated from the plants by 1.8 cents per kilowatt hour…

Feds Seize Nearly 100 Pounds Of Fentanyl In Unprecedented Drug Bust – Washington Times

Federal authorities said Monday that a narcotics probe has resulted in the seizure of nearly 100 pounds of fentanyl, or enough of the drug to kill more than a million people.

Drug Enforcement Administration agents seized about 97 pounds of the synthetic opiate during the course of investigating an alleged narcotics ring in San Diego, federal prosecutors announced Monday.

Details of the seizure were unveiled in tandem with the unsealing of a related indictment against three of the operation’s purported suspects: Jonathan Ibarra, 45; Anna Baker, 30; and Hector Fernando Garcia, 46.

Federal agents determined that Mr. Ibarra “received instructions” on Nov. 20, 2016 for using a female courier later identified as Ms. Baker to transport an unidentified narcotic, according to the documents.

U.S. Senate Passes Landmark VA Accountability Legislation – Daily Caller

With the passage of the bill by voice vote Tuesday evening, senators hope to give President Donald Trump the legislation to sign into law by the end of June.

Coats, Rogers Ruin Democrats’ Narrative: “Never Felt Pressured To Do Anything Illegal” – Zero Hedge

Not surprisingly, today’s hearing on the review of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act quickly morphed into another Trump witch hunt as soon as the first Democrat on the committee, Senator Mark Warner (D-VA), was allotted time for questions.

Unfortunately, Warner didn’t get the response he had hoped for when he asked Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and National Security Agency Director Admiral Mike Rogers whether they had ever been pressured by the Trump administration to downplay the Russian investigation.

Here are the headlines:

*NSA’S ROGERS: I’VE NEVER FELT PRESSURED TO DO ANYTHING ILLEGAL

It’s Failing: Major Insurer Exits Another State, Leaving 20 Ohio Counties With Zero Obamacare ‘Choices’ – Townhall

Aetna in Virginia. Blue Cross Blue Shield in Kansas City, Nebraska and Iowa. Now Anthem in Ohio. And those are just the headlines since April.

Obamacare is falling apart at the seams, and as predicted, it keeps getting worse. And in spite of Democrats’ buck-passing “GOP sabotage” spin – which never accounted for massive Obamacare face-plants in deep blue states – this latest failure has occurred in Buckeye country, where Governor John Kasich famously embraced the law’s (over-budget) Medicaid expansion and has defended his decision vociferously.

Ohio, in other words, is hardly poster child for supposed Republican treachery. And yet, here we are”

Anthem, one of the nation’s largest insurers and a major player in the individual insurance market created by the federal health care law, announced on Tuesday that it will stop offering policies in the Ohio marketplace next year. The decision leaves about a fifth of the state’s counties potentially without an insurer for 2018, affecting some 10,500 people…

Ramadan Rage 2017: The Complete List Of Jihadist Attacks Around The World – Breitbart

Welcome to Breitbart News’ running tally of worldwide jihadist terrorist attacks during Ramadan 2017. Check back for updates through the end of the Islamic holy month on June 24.

The estimated 832 deaths and 912 injuries from the estimated 60 attacks that have taken place across about 19 countries during the first 12 days of this year’s holy Muslim month of Ramadan have already marked the bloodiest Ramadan in recent years for adherents of Islam.

Jihadists believe martyrdom is doubly rewarded in paradise during Ramadan. Jihadist groups encourage martyrdom among their sympathizers and followers, promoting the belief that they will be doubly rewarded if they fatally castigate infidels during Ramadan. The holy month this year is on track to surpass the deadliest and bloodiest Ramadan in the modern record: Ramadan 2016.

Ramadan 2016 featured 1,150 casualties – both death and injuries. This year, terrorists – namely the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL), Taliban, and al-Qaeda, among other jihadists – have already killed or wounded more than 1,500 people across about 15 countries and there are still about 20 days left in the month…

Daily Mail Accuses Jeremy Corbyn, John McDonnell And Diane Abbott Of Befriending The UK’s Enemies And Scorning The Institutions That keep Brits Safe – Daily Mail

Today, the Daily Mail accuses Jeremy Corbyn, John McDonnell and Diane Abbott – the troika who could run the next government – of being unashamed apologists for terror, who have devoted their lives to befriending the enemies of Britain while undermining the very institutions that keep us safe in our beds.

Let us be clear. We have no doubt that Mr Corbyn’s expressions of horror over the atrocities in Manchester and at London Bridge, and his sympathy for the victims and their families, were sincere. But the ineluctable truth is that the Labour leader and his closest associates have spent their careers cosying up to those who hate our country, while pouring scorn on the police and security services and opposing anti-terror legislation over and over and over again.

Yes, Mr Corbyn has impressed some with his quiet composure under hostile questioning. But he personally has spent a political lifetime courting mass murderers in the Middle East, Ireland and elsewhere in the world, affronting his party and its decent traditional supporters, while voting on 56 occasions against measures aimed at containing the terrorist threat…

Ex-Intel Contractor Sues Comey, Alleging FBI Covered Up Mass Civil Liberties Violations – Circa

In Spite Of Media Silence, 50,000 Urge Trump To Investigate Seth Rich’s Murder – Real Strategy

In spite of the media’s silence and refusal to cover the topic, 50,000 Americans are urging President Donald Trump to investigate the murder of DNC staffer, Seth Rich. It’s the topic that no congress member or the media even wants to touch unless they dub those who search for the truth “conspiracy theorists.”

There are at least a few concerned Americans though, unafraid of sticking their necks out. WND reported that there are nearly 50,000 who are urging Donald Trump to probe the murder of Seth Rich. Tens of thousands of Americans have signed a White House petition calling for the appointment of a special prosecutor to investigate the case. Since the media and the authorities are hell bent on covering up this story, the petition likely seemed necessary to the signers. The petition, which was created May 19, currently has almost half the signatures required to receive a response from the White House. The goal of 100,000 signatures has a deadline of June 18.

Trump Unveils Plan To Privatize U.S. Air Traffic Control System – Fox News

President Trump announced his plan Monday to privatize America’s air traffic control system and separate it from the FAA – arguing the federal agency is too “antiquated” to innovate and casting the overhaul as an initial step toward improving the country’s infrastructure.

Trump wants to turn the air traffic control system into a modernized non-profit organization that operates on fees paid by airlines and others that use U.S. airspace, instead of taxes. “We are prepared to enter a great new era in American aviation,” Trump said, in announcing the plan at the White House. “It’s time to join the future and make flights quicker, safer, more reliable.”

Trump argues the changes are necessary because the existing system has been unable to keep pace with the fast-changing aviation industry that now includes commercial space flights and unmanned aircraft systems, also known as drones…

Federal Contractor Named Reality Winner Arrested For Sending Classified NSA Intelligence To News Outlet – Washington Examiner

The charges against Reality Leigh Winner came about an hour after the publication of a story based on an NSA document detailing Russian attempts to hack American voting systems in 2016.

President Trump has been pushing Justice to go after leakers inside the federal government, which he has identified as “the big story” when it comes to Russia’s involvement in the 2016 presidential election. Winner’s arrest could signal the federal government is going to aggressively investigate and prosecute individuals who send classified intelligence to news organizations.

Trump and other Republican allies in Washington have made pursuing leakers one of their top priorities, but Winner is the first to face charges for releasing classified intelligence.

Unemployment Claims At Lowest Level In 28 Years – Washington Examiner

Total continuing claims for unemployment benefits ran at the lowest level in 28 years at the beginning of May, the Department of Labor reported Thursday morning in a new sign that the jobs market is still improving.

The total number of unemployed workers receiving benefits fell to 1.9 million, the agency said, the lowest such mark since November of 1988, when the workforce was much smaller.

Over the past month, the average number of continuing claims per week has clocked in at 1.95 million, the lowest number in 43 years.

Those numbers were released as part of the department’s weekly jobless claims report, which is valued by investors and government officials because it provides a frequently-updated indication of new claims for unemployment benefits, a proxy for layoffs. Fewer layoffs means more job creation.

Thursday’s report showed just 232,000 new claims, adjusted for seasonal variations, for the week ending on May 13…

1 Killed, 18 Injured As Man With History Of Driving Drunk Mows Down Pedestrians In Times Square – New York Post

A driver speeding the wrong way up Seventh Avenue plowed into pedestrians in Times Square, killing at least one person and injuring 18 others, law enforcement sources said.

The motorist reportedly drove the wrong way up Seventh Avenue for up to three blocks, hitting several people along the way before crashing into a pole at 45th Street and Broadway, police and witnesses said.

Three of the injured people were in critical condition, according to police sources. The driver was tested for alcohol and has not made any statements, sources said.

Colleges Are Putting Tampons In Men’s Bathrooms Because Men Can Have Vaginas Too – Daily Caller

The idea is that transgender men, women who transitioned to men, might need tampons because they still have periods.

“That’s become a really popular rallying cry and source of activism on college campuses – the idea that these products should be freely available by the schools that these students attend,” Jennifer Weiss-Wolf, who came up with “menstrual equity” explained. “This problem is eminently solvable, through a lot of avenues, and college-campus organizing is one of them.”

Deputies in Marion County arrested Sydney Allan Markland, 68, on a charge of sexual battery. They said Markland asked the girl, who lives in his neighborhood, to help him carry some chicken into his home. While inside, Markland raped the girl and ordered her not to tell anyone, deputies said.

The girl told a parent, who called authorities. Lab tests showed Markland’s DNA was on the girl’s clothing, deputies said.

Detectives interviewed Markland, who goes by the nickname “Dread,” at that point. He told them that the girl “came into his house wearing provocative clothing and her ‘actions’ suggested that she was consenting to sexual contact,” states a news release from the Marion County Sheriff’s Office.

Federal Investigator Corroborates Private Dick’s Claim That Seth Rich Made Contact With WikiLeaks – Fox News

The Democratic National Committee staffer who was gunned down on July 10 on a Washington, D.C., street just steps from his home had leaked thousands of internal emails to WikiLeaks, law enforcement sources told Fox News.

A federal investigator who reviewed an FBI forensic report detailing the contents of DNC staffer Seth Rich’s computer generated within 96 hours after his murder, said Rich made contact with WikiLeaks through Gavin MacFadyen, a now-deceased American investigative reporter, documentary filmmaker, and director of WikiLeaks who was living in London at the time.

“I have seen and read the emails between Seth Rich and Wikileaks,” the federal investigator told Fox News, confirming the MacFadyen connection. He said the emails are in possession of the FBI, while the stalled case is in the hands of the Washington Police Department.

The revelation is consistent with the findings of Rod Wheeler, a former DC homicide detective and Fox News contributor and whose private investigation firm was hired by Rich’s family to probe the case. Rich was shot from behind in the wee hours, but was not robbed…

Antifa Chick Goes To Turkey With Muslim Loverboy, Gets Raped And Beaten – Gateway Pundit

Lacy MacAuley is a well known radical left-wing Antifa organizer in Washington D.C. She was featured in Project Veritas’ undercover videos which exposed the #DisruptJ20 plot to violently disrupt President Trump’s inauguration.

Just like every other lunatic leftist, Lacy fell in love with Islam and became obsessed with helping Syrian ‘refugees’, wholeheartedly believing that Islam is the religion of peace. MacAuley details her experience dating a Turkish Muslim man, describing the hell and fear she lived in because he controlled every move she made, beat and raped her.

Congress To Pass Fresh Sanctions On North Korea As Nuke Threat Hits Critical Stage – Washington Free Beacon
.

Congress is expected to level fresh economic sanctions on North Korea this week as the threat of the hermit nation’s capability to strike the U.S. with a nuclear missile continues to escalate, according to conversations with members of the congressional leadership who told the Washington Free Beacon that the Kim Jong Un regime could have a nuclear weapon capable of striking the United States in “only a few years.”

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R., Calif.) confirmed that he has scheduled a vote in the House on new sanctions that will target North Korea’s slave labor trade and its shipping industry, which plays a central role in ferrying illicit arms and technology to and from the country. North Korea is a major supplier of nuclear technology on the black market, particularly to Iran, which has mimicked Pyongyang’s nuclear playbook…

North Korea Threatens China With “Grave Consequences” Over “Betrayal” – Zero Hedge

Earlier this morning we reported that according to Korea Times, China had allegedly sent North Korea what amount to a final warning over its military provocations. The rumor cited the May issue of Hong Kong monthly news outlet Dong Xiang. It said a Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs junior minister invited Park Myung-ho, an official of North Korea, for a meeting. China’s Foreign Minister Wang Yi attended the meeting and asked his junior to read aloud the warning to the North over the nuclear test. The memorandum mentioned that China will condemn strongly, pull back on all economic cooperation and even blockade North Korea if it conducted the test.

It didn’t take Korea long to respond.

In an almost unprecedented criticism of China on Wednesday, North Korea’s state media said Chinese state media commentaries calling for tougher sanctions over Pyongyang’s nuclear program were undermining relations with Beijing and worsening tensions…

Apple To Create $1 Billion U.S. Advanced Manufacturing Fund – Reuters

Apple Inc (AAPL.O) plans to create a $1 billion fund to invest in U.S. companies that perform advanced manufacturing, Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook said on Wednesday, the iPhone maker’s latest effort to show how it is creating U.S. jobs.

The Cupertino, California company will announce the fund’s first investment later in May, Cook said during an interview on CNBC.

The announcements were the latest in a series of disclosures to highlight how Apple, the world’s largest company by market valuation, contributes to job creation in the United States. Apple came under fire from President Donald Trump during his campaign because it makes most of its products in China.

Republican Spending Bill Funds Border Security… In Libya, Pakistan, Ethiopia, Egypt, Afghanistan, Jordan And Lebanon – CNS

Trump Goes After FBI Director Comey On Eve Of Senate Testimony – Daily Caller

It is unclear what exactly prompted Trump’s outburst, though it was likely a response to an interview Clinton gave earlier in the day in which she blamed several factors, including Russia, misogyny and Comey, for her November election loss to Trump.

The article, published in the Journal of Medical Ethics, says newborn babies are not “actual persons” and do not have a “moral right to life”. The academics also argue that parents should be able to have their baby killed if it turns out to be disabled when it is born.

The journal’s editor, Prof Julian Savulescu, director of the Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics, said the article’s authors had received death threats since publishing the article. He said those who made abusive and threatening posts about the study were “fanatics opposed to the very values of a liberal society”.

‘White Devils’: Muhammad Ali’s Racist Mosque Speeches Revealed – Breitbart

The speeches feature Ali calling whites “crackers” and “white devils,” and telling black congregants that blacks want to be segregated from whites.

The speeches, which were released after a Freedom of Information Act request by Washington watchdog group Judicial Watch, revealed that Ali had far more radical views about race than his more benign public persona might have led people to believe.

Not only did Ali thunder that the 1964 civil rights act was a “swindle” on blacks, he also went on to excoriate whites, calling them “blue-eyed devil white people,” and insisting that “the so-called Negro is the original man and is superior to the white devil.”

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.

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…

Reports Of 150,000 Chinese Troops Moving On The Korean Border Are ‘Pure Fiction’ – Daily Caller

There “is no evidence” at this time of any significant troop movements along the Chinese-North Korean border, despite reports suggesting otherwise, the Department of Defense told The Daily Caller News Foundation Monday.

Multiple media outlets are reporting that China has deployed 150,000 troops to the border for “unforeseen contingencies” believed to be the possibility of a U.S. pre-emptive strike on North Korea, such as the one President Donald Trump ordered on Syria last Thursday.

U.S. Pacific Command refused to comment on foreign troop movements; however, they did tell TheDCNF that the first they had heard of Chinese troop movements along the border was when a reporter called for comment.

China’s foreign ministry called such reports “pure fiction,” with Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokeswoman Hua Chunying saying, “I have no idea where these reports are coming from.”…

Speaking from the U.S.-Mexico border in Nogales, Arizona Tuesday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced major changes to Justice Department protocol when it comes to charging and prosecuting illegal aliens.

“For those that continue to seek improper and illegal entry into this country, be forewarned: This is a new era. This is the Trump era. The lawlessness, the abdication of the duty to enforce our immigration laws and the catch and release practices of old are over,” Sessions said.

Army Chief Of Staff To Congress: You Suck! – Washington Free Beacon

The top officer of the U.S. Army reprimanded Congress on Wednesday for its repeated failure to pass a budget that fully funds the military, rejecting remarks from a Democratic lawmaker that the military should adapt to stop-gap spending bills as the new reality in Washington.

Army Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Milley warned that Congress’s inability to pass a budget by the end of the month would “ultimately result in dead Americans on a future battlefield” and pose a threat to national security.

“Failure to pass the budget, in my view as an American citizen and the chief of staff of the United States Army, constitutes professional malpractice,” Milley testified before the House Armed Services Committee…

Obama DOI Officials Were Paid $6 Million While On Extended Administrative Leave – Daily Caller

Department of the Interior (DOI) officials were paid $6 million while on extended administrative leave – often while under investigation for misconduct – without documented approval, a government watchdog reported Wednesday.

The $6 million went to 242 DOI employees on administrative leave for at least 45 days between January 2013 and July 2016, the agency’s Inspector General (IG) reported.

“DOI did not sufficiently document decisions made regarding the use of extended administrative leave, resulting in inefficient management and oversight,” the report said.

“If DOI management does not appropriately maintain documentation… DOI cannot demonstrate that it has properly managed its use of extended administrative leave or that it has not wasted taxpayers dollars by paying employees not to work.”

Specifically, DOI officials didn’t document approvals for extended leave approvals, alternatives considered, nor notifications sent to employees placed on extended leave…

Ben Carson Uncovers Massive HUD Fraud Under The Obama Regime – The Black Sphere

Liberals called President Trump’s selection to run HUD “unqualified.” That’s right. For Leftists, a brain surgeon wasn’t qualified to understand housing.

Worse yet, we now learn that Obama’s HUD was completely inept.

The inspector general (IG) for the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) revealed this week that for three straight years, Obama’s HUD staff cooked the books. These morons wouldn’t know a balance sheet from a fitted sheet.

Obama HUD FraudHUD’s books are in such bad shape that the IG can’t complete an audit on their second try.

Here’s what happened on the first try:

According to the IG report, after the first review, Obama staffers had to correct a whopping $520 billion in bookkeeping errors.

When the IG remained unable to issue an opinion for fiscal years 2015 or 2016, he gave Obama staffers a three-month extension. Thus, their reprieve allowed them to fix $3.4 billion in 2015 errors and $516.4 billion in 2016 errors…

Canada On Verge Of Having A Gender Neutral ‘O Canada’ Anthem – Daily Caller

Some Canadian senators are urgently trying to stop Canada from having a “gender neutral” national anthem that they say will sound “clunky, leaden and pedestrian.”

If not blocked or amended, a bill winding its way through the Canadian Parliament will render “O Canada” into a statement of political correctness. The bill has already passed through the elected House of Commons, where it was introduced by now-deceased Liberal Member of Parliament Mauril Bélanger.

Even Liberal Senator Joan Fraser, who calls herself an “ardent feminist,” is opposed to the new phrasing that she says reflects poor grammar and is a silly effort to force “today’s values” on a song that was written in a different era.

“It’s a fine example of what happens when you let politicians meddle,” she said of Bill C-210, the National Anthem Act. “Politicians are not usually poets.”

The Liberal MP who sponsored the bill died last summer from Lou Gehrig’s Disease. His changes include excising the phrase “all thy sons command” and replacing it with “all of us command.”…

Idaho’s $4.3 Million Solar Road Generates Enough Power To Run One Microwave – Daily Caller

An expensive solar road project in Idaho can’t even power a microwave most days, according to the project’s energy data.

The Solar FREAKIN’ Roadways project generated an average of 0.62 kilowatt hours (kWh) of electricity per day since it began publicly posting power data in late March. To put that in perspective, the average microwave or blow drier consumes about 1 kWh per day.

On March 29th, the solar road panels generated 0.26 kWh, or less electricity than a single plasma television consumes. On March 31st, the panels generated 1.06 kWh, enough to barely power a single microwave. The panels have been under-performing their expectations due to design flaws, but even if they had worked perfectly they’d have only powered a single water fountain and the lights in a nearby restroom.

The IRS Took Millions From Innocent People Because Of How They Managed Their Bank Accounts – Washington Post

The Internal Revenue Service has seized millions of dollars in cash from individuals and businesses who obtained the money legally, according to a new Treasury Inspector General’s report.

The report covers IRS cash seizures against businesses and individuals suspected of deliberately trying to avoid federal reporting requirements for large bank deposits.

In order to combat criminal activity, individuals and businesses are required to report all bank deposits greater than $10,000 to federal authorities. Intentionally splitting up large sums of cash into sub-$10,000 amounts to avoid that reporting requirement is known as “structuring,” and is illegal under the federal Bank Secrecy Act.

But many business owners engaged in perfectly legal activities may be unaware of the law. Others are covered by insurance policies that don’t cover cash losses greater than $10,000. Still others simply want to avoid extra paperwork, and keep their deposits less than $10,000 on the advice of bank employees or colleagues…

German Cabinet Backs €50 Million Hate Speech Fines For Social Media Firms – TechCrunch

The German cabinet has backed proposals to hit social media firms with fines of up to €50 million if they fail to promptly remove illegal hate speech from their platforms – within 24 hours after a complaint has been made for “obviously criminal content”, and within seven days for other illegal content.

The draft law would also see individuals from companies facing fines of up to €5M for any criminal content removal failures.

In a statement today [translated via Google Translate], German Justice Minister Heiko Maas said: “The providers of social networks are responsible when their platforms are abused to spread hate criminality and criminal false news. There can be just as little space on social networks for criminal acts as on the street. To do better, we owe the victims of hate criminality.

Susan Rice’s White House Unmasking: A Watergate-Style Scandal – Andrew C. McCarthy

The thing to bear in mind is that the White House does not do investigations. Not criminal investigations, not intelligence investigations.

Remember that.

Why is that so important in the context of explosive revelations that Susan Rice, President Obama’s national-security adviser, confidant, and chief dissembler, called for the “unmasking” of Trump campaign and transition officials whose identities and communications were captured in the collection of U.S. intelligence on foreign targets?

Because we’ve been told for weeks that any unmasking of people in Trump’s circle that may have occurred had two innocent explanations: (1) the FBI’s investigation of Russian meddling in the election and (2) the need to know, for purposes of understanding the communications of foreign intelligence targets, the identities of Americans incidentally intercepted or mentioned. The unmasking, Obama apologists insist, had nothing to do with targeting Trump or his people.

Illegal Immigration Down More Than 60 Percent Under Trump – Washington Times

Ethiopian ‘Child Migrants’ Confess To Real Ages, Are Denied Entry Into UK – Gateway Pundit

Media Silent On Planned Parenthood’s Ties To Lawmakers Behind Pro-Life Activist Charges – Washington Examiner

Planned Parenthood donated to the two California attorney generals responsible for bringing charges against the anti-abortion activists behind the fetal tissue scandal.

Anti-Abortion Activists Face Dubious Eavesdropping Charges In California – Reason

Yesterday California Attorney General Xavier Becerra announced 15 felony charges against two anti-abortion activists, David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt, in connection with their hidden-camera recordings of conversations with Planned Parenthood employees they sought to implicate in the illegal sale of fetal tissue.

“The right to privacy is a cornerstone of California’s Constitution, and a right that is foundational in a free democratic society,” Becerra declared. “We will not tolerate the criminal recording of confidential conversations.”

The right to freedom of the press, which Daleiden and Merritt claim they were exercising, is also foundational in a free democratic society, and it conflicts with California’s dubious definition of the right to privacy.

6.5 Million Taxpayers Paid $3 Billion In Obamacare Penalties In 2016 – Washington Free Beacon

Approximately 6.5 million taxpayers paid $3 billion in Obamacare penalties for not having health insurance in 2016, according to preliminary data from the Internal Revenue Service Commissioner John Koskinen.

Beginning in 2014, the Affordable Care Act’s individual mandate required that Americans purchase health care coverage or pay a penalty to the Internal Revenue Service.

While the number of taxpayers paying the penalty has declined since 2014, the total amount in penalties paid to the IRS has increased since then.

In 2014, individuals without insurance had to pay the greater penalty of either a flat fee of $95 or 1 percent of the household’s adjusted gross income in excess of the threshold for mandatory tax filing. In 2016, those penalties increased to a flat fee of $695 or 2.5 percent of the adjusted gross income.

In 2014, Koskinen’s preliminary data showed that there were 7.5 million taxpayers who paid a total of $1.5 billion in Obamacare penalties…

Christian Student Suspended After Challenging Muslim Professor’s Insane Claim That Jesus Wasn’t Crucified – College Fix
.

A student says he was suspended from Rollins College for challenging his Muslim professor’s anti-Christian assertions, including her claim that Jesus’ crucifixion never took place.

Twenty-year-old Marshall Polston, a sophomore at the private, Florida-based four-year college, said that the professor of his Middle Eastern Humanities class also told students that Jesus’ disciples did not believe he was God.

Polston, an avid traveler and self-described Christian, has toured the Middle East and is familiar with the Muslim culture.

“Honestly, it reminded me of some of the more radical groups I researched when abroad,” Polston told the Central Florida Post about his professor’s comments on Jesus…

Massachusetts State Representative Caught Tipping Off Illegal Aliens To Imminent ICE Raids – Daily Caller

Massachusetts state Rep. Michelle DuBois posted a warning to illegal immigrants on her Facebook page Tuesday about upcoming Immigration and Customs Enforcement raids that are rumored to be taking place in the area.

In the post, DuBois wrote, “ICE raid in Brockton (MA) on 3/28.”

“I got the following information from my friend in the Latin community: ‘I have a message for the immigrant community of Brockton. Please be careful on Wednesday 29. ICE will be in Brockton on that day.’”

“If you are undocumented don’t go out on the street,” DuBois, who represents the 10th district, added. “If there is a knock on the door of your house and you don’t know who it is, don’t open the door. I ask you to be careful.”

The Democrat included a phone number for immigrants to call if they are detained by ICE.

She also followed up her original post with a chart that explains “what to do if ICE comes to your door.”…

President Obama’s Own Defense Deputy Admits Obama White House Spied On Candidate/President-Elect Trump – Conservative Treehouse

Sometimes when a person is deep inside an echo-chamber of like-minded ideologues, they might not realize what they’re saying is rather revealing to those on the outside.

DNC Chairman Asks Entire Staff For Resignation Letters – Zero Hedge

Former Labor Secretary Tom Perez, who took over as the chair of the Democratic National Committee in late February following Hillary’s stunning November defeat, has asked for his entire staff to submit their resignation letters by no later than April 15th.

Of course, the move comes after a series of scandals plagued the DNC throughout the 2016 election cycle, including rather undeniable evidence that former Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz intentionally undermined the campaign of Bernie Sanders while her replacement, Donna Brazile, seemingly did the same by passing Hillary’s team debate questions in advance of Town Hall discussions with Bernie.

According to NBC, Tom Perez decided to clean house at the DNC shortly after taking over the leadership role from Donna Brazile and will use the mass firing as an opportunity to restructure how the party will be run going forward.

Democrat Congressional Candidate From Georgia Lied About His National Security Credentials – Washington Free Beacon

After claiming for months he had five years of experience as a congressional national security staffer with top-secret clearance, Georgia Democrat Jon Ossoff has now admitted that he had clearance for just five months.

Since Ossoff announced his campaign to fill the seat vacated by Tom Price earlier this year, he has leaned on his supposed five years as a “national security aide with top-secret clearance.” The claim has been made in campaign ads, during campaign events, and even in his campaign announcement.

The Washington Free Beacon reported last week that Ossoff’s claim was dubious. Ossoff was a 19-year-old student at Georgetown University when he began working as a part-time staffer for Rep. Hank Johnson (D., Ga.), but security clearances are generally granted only to permanent staffers. He was not made a full-time staffer for another two years.

Ossoff’s campaign did not respond to Washington Free Beacon requests for more information about his time working in Johnson’s office, but provided local reporters with a timeline that shows Ossoff worked for just over two years as a full-time aide – and worked only five months with top-secret clearance.

Judge Approves Man’s Petition To Be Legally ‘Genderless’ – PJ Media

People are free to believe anything they wish in the United States. Irrational ideas only become an issue when they impact our legal system, since that means they have the potential to enforce the stupid on the rest of us.

For example, a judge in Portland has ruled that an individual is now legally “genderless”:

The March 10 decision, reported for the first time on Thursday, involved a 27-year-old who was born male but claimed to identify with no gender whatsoever. Judge Amy Holmes, who approved the petition, also last year approved a “non-binary” gender designation for another Portland resident.

The 27-year-old formerly known as Patrick Abbatiello, now legally designated agender, also got legal approval to change names, now going only by “Patch,” no surname. That name also serves as a pronoun, Patch explained to the local NBC affiliate this week.

“Even gender-neutral pronouns don’t feel as if they fit me,” Patch said. “I feel no identity or closeness with any pronouns I’ve come across. What describes me is my name.”…

Tech Execs Indicted For H-1B Visa Fraud – Breitbart

A pair of tech executives have been indicted for allegedly using false documents to bring in help through the H-1B guest worker program.

Dynasoft Synergy’s Chief Executive Officer Jayavel Murugan, 46, and 40-year-old Syed Nawaz are accused in an unsealed federal grand jury indictment of trying to apply for H-1B visa workers using fraudulent documents and then hiring them out to tech firms, according to Mercury News.

Dynasoft operates as an “employment firm” that essentially leases foreign workers. The company also has an office in India.

According to prosecutors, Murugan and Nawaz used the false documents to replace American workers at Stanford University, Cisco, and Brocade. Nonetheless, the employers were not looking to use the H-1B workers, despite being named in the false documents allegedly produced by the two men.

Murugan and Nawaz are charged with 26 counts including H-1B visa fraud, using fraudulent documents, mail fraud, identity theft, and conspiracy to commit visa fraud…

Fake Florida Doctor Who ‘Enhanced’ Buttocks With Cement, Caulking Gets 10 Years For Manslaughter – Washington Post

From a Florida prison in November 2011, Shatarka Nuby penned a letter to the state’s health department about her cosmetically enhanced buttocks.

Her rear end had hardened and turned black, she wrote. Side effects from the years-old injections left the mother of three feeling sick. And she claimed her surgeon – Oneal Ron Morris – was the same faux cosmetic doctor that police had arrested and accused of pumping a near-lethal formula of cement, mineral oil, bathroom caulking and Fix-a-Flat tire sealant into other women’s bodies.

Her patients called her “Duchess.”

Officials began investigating and interviewed Nuby.

But four months later, she was dead.

The official cause of death was respiratory failure from “massive systemic silicone migration” from injections to Nuby’s buttocks and hips, according to the medical examiner.

Morris was charged with manslaughter and practicing medicine without a license in the summer of 2012, and last month pleaded no contest to both, reported the Sun Sentinel…

Senators Lee, Jordan And Meadows Call For Immediate Repeal Of ‘Deplorable’ Obamacare – Breitbart

Capitol Hill conservatives Sen. Mike Lee (R.-Utah), House Freedom Caucus Chairman Rep. Mark Meadows (R.-N.C.), and Meadows’ HFC predecessor Rep. James Jordan (R.-Ohio) at a Heritage Foundation-sponsored event told reporters Congress should repeal the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act immediately.

At a minimum, Congress should follow through with the PPACA, or Obamacare repeal, that was passed through the budget reconciliation process in the last Congress and vetoed by President Barack Obama, Lee said.

“We still have a Congress that is controlled by the Republican Party, and we also have a White House, we have a Republican president, so we need to pass that,” Lee said. “If we can get something more aggressive than that? Then, great. But it certainly should not be anything less aggressive than what we were able to pass in 2015.”

Lee said he was not taken in by calls to delay the repeal, which was a promise to the American people.

Instead of waiting for Congress to build a new Obamacare before repealing Obamacare, the first step is to lock down repeal, he said.

It is important that the repeal bill pass in the next three or four months because there are so many items that Congress must deal with this year, Lee said…

U.S. Has Run Annual Trade Deficits For 41 Straight Years – CNS

With the United States running trade deficits in both goods and services combined and goods alone in 2016, the nation has not seen a trade surplus in any of the last 41 years, according to data published by the Census Bureau.

The last time the United States ran a trade surplus was 1975 – when Gerald Ford was president.

The Census Bureau has published historical data on annual U.S. trade balances going back to 1960. In 13 of the 16 years from 1960 through 1975, the U.S. ran goods-and-services trade surpluses and surpluses in the trade of goods (merchandise) alone.

But in each of the 41 years after 1975, according to data released by the Census Bureau and the Bureau of Economic Analysis, the U.S. has run both a merchandise trade deficit and a goods and services deficit.

In 1974, as measured by the Census Bureau, the U.S. ran a merchandise trade surplus of $3,884,000,000. Then in 1975, the nation ran an $9,551,000,000 merchandise trade surplus. In 1976, however, the merchandise trade balance went back into the red – with a deficit of $$7,820,000,000…

Hundreds Of Immigrants Convicted And Not Deported Committed More Crimes, Even Murder – Miami Herald

At least 121 killings within a four-year span were carried out by convicted immigrants who were not deported, according to a 2015 U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee document recently reviewed by el Nuevo Herald.

Every year, federal immigration authorities release foreign nationals convicted of crimes – including murder – both because the U.S. Supreme Court has prohibited indefinite detention or because their countries refuse to take them back even after immigration judges have ordered deportation.

While the release of convicted immigrant criminals has been routine since the Supreme Court issued its landmark ruling 15 years ago, the practice is now in the national spotlight because President Donald Trump has made it imperative to deport immigrant convicts as quickly as possible lest they commit more crimes.

Research by the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee has elicited evidence that could be used to back Trump’s claim. A committee document contains comprehensive information from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) about the number of immigrant convicts in the United States, their whereabouts, whether immigration authorities have succeeded in deporting them and whether they committed additional crimes after being released…

When police arrived at the busy Oakland intersection of Centre and Melwood avenues shortly before 4 p.m. Monday, Marchese, 51, was sitting in his tan Buick 4-door, nodding in and out of consciousness, according to a criminal complaint.

Australians Turn Against Prime Minister After His Spat With President Trump – Your News Wire

Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnball’s disastrous phone call with President Trump might have thrust him into the international spotlight, but polls show “embarrassed” Australian voters have turned against him in droves since the incident.

Pundits say Australians are embarrassed their Prime Minister used his first phone call with President Trump to air his dirty laundry in public and attempt to push thousands of unwanted refugees on their closest ally, the United States.

France: Anti-Christian Attacks Rise 245 Percent – Breitbart

While racist, anti-Muslim, and anti-Semitic attacks have seen a huge fall since 2008, those on Christian places of worship more than doubled in this period of time, France’s interior ministry reported last week.

Having documented a record number of anti-Semitic and anti-Muslim attacks in 2015, the French government spent €100 million on a huge anti-populist campaign to reduce Islamophobia, racism, and anti-Semitism.

Subsequently, racist, anti-Semitic, and anti-Muslim attacks fell sharply in 2016 with the former seeing a decline of 58.5 per cent and the latter a drop of 57.6 per cent. These attacks are defined as being fires, violence, degradation, and threats – comments, inscriptions, insulting letters.

In this year, attacks on Christian places of worship have increased by 17.4 per cent in 2016 compared to 2015. Racist attacks, meanwhile, dropped by 23.7 per cent (608 versus 797).

The sharp drop in incidents of an Islamophobic or anti-Semitic nature was welcomed by the French government, who credited the figures as the “fruit of the government’s action plan”.

“Thanks to an unprecedented mobilisation of state services, we have already achieved very encouraging results, as evidenced by the figures for 2016. This gives us much satisfaction”, said interior minister Bruno Le Roux…

Nancy Pelosi Says She Can’t Work With ‘President Bush’ – Washington Free Beacon

A day after House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) was drilled by Meet The Press host Chuck Todd on whether her party’s leadership was out of touch with the current political climate the nearly three-decade veteran of Congress mistakenly referred to President Donald Trump as “President Bush.”

“While its only been a couple of weeks since the inauguration, we’ve seen nothing that I can work with President Bush on,” said Pelosi during a Monday press conference.

It appears that members standing behind Pelosi noticed the mistake but chose not to correct or interrupt her. It remains unclear, however, exactly which “President Bush” the minority leader was referring to…

College Pledges To Hire Professors Based On Skin Color, Mandates Social Justice Workshops – College Fix

A women’s college is planning to hire new professors based on the color of their skin because of the “demonstrated benefits” of nonwhite faculty.

Whether such faculty benefit the college enough to be paid for a full teaching load remains to be seen, however.

After a year of deliberation, the Barnard College Task Force on Diversity and Inclusion released a set of draft recommendations last week with the aim of improving “representation, inclusion, and social justice” in the classroom and on campus.

Beyond hiring a new C-level official to oversee diversity efforts, the recommendations include mandatory social justice workshops for all community members and extra academic support specifically for racial minorities.

The effort is so expensive that Barnard, which is affiliated with Columbia University, will have to launch a new fundraising campaign to pull it off, as the recommendations acknowledge.

Everyone ‘will be expected to participate’

The task force was created to “increase the representation of students, faculty, and staff from historically underrepresented and socially distinctive backgrounds” and to “create a campus-wide culture and commitment that values diversity.”…

Anti-Trump Protester Accused Of Blocking Ambulance Rushing Critically Ill Patient To Hospital – Law Newz

State Police in New Haven, Connecticut reportedly have their hands full with demonstrations against the new president. The latest “fad” in protesting seems to be trying to shut down busy highways and other streets. It is a practice that can have potentially deadly consequences and posses safety risks to both motorists and protesters. And over the weekend, we saw how it can potentially have an impact on a critically ill patient trying to get to a hospital.

Why Dems Love Suicidal Immigration Policies – David Kupelian

In “The Snapping of the American Mind,” I comprehensively prosecute the case that not only is what we call “the left” irrational and basically insane, but it is also driving millions of Americans right over the edge – into extreme anger, faux victimhood, violence, depression, debauchery, addiction, despair and suicide.

The recent hysterical overreaction to President Trump’s executive order temporarily restricting travel from countries known to be terrorist hotbeds illustrates the madness currently consuming many Americans.

First, a reality check: Of all the destructive trends gripping America in recent decades – from ever-expanding government funded by unrepayable debt, to a godless culture glorifying sexual anarchy, to universities morphing into far-left brainwashing centers – none is more disastrous, indeed suicidal, than the way America has been dealing with immigration.

That’s why Donald Trump – echoing Ronald Reagan, who said, “A nation that cannot control its borders is not a nation” – made immigration, both legal and illegal, his signature issue.

Our nation’s staggeringly perverse immigration policies exert a negative impact on virtually every other big problem Americans face – from an increase in homicides, rapes, robberies, assaults and shootings in our cities, to corruption of our election system, to ever-more-frequent Islamic mass-terror attacks within the U.S., to a degradation of the American identity itself…

Looting, Rape And Murder Break Out In Streets Of Espirito Santo, Brazil After Military Police Go On Strike – Daily Mail

Brazilian troops are being deployed in the state of Espírito Santo after looting, rape and murders broke out after military police went on strike.

The chaos has been compared to the 2014 thriller film The Purge, where people take advantage of the absence of law and order to carry out horrific crimes.

With officers staging a walk-out over conditions, thugs are running riot, with people running rampant with guns and machetes, shops being robbed, buses set on fire and dead bodies are left lying in the street.

The Brazilian federal government today ordered troops into the city of Vitoria, north east of Rio de Janeiro, which has been left at the mercy of criminals.

The defence ministry said soldiers were being sent in ‘due to the serious public safety situation’.

Brazil’s Defence Minister Raul Jungmann visited Vitoria today on a fact-finding mission.

Police officers have been blockading police stations in protest against unpaid salaries since Saturday.

Don’t Fall For China’s Global Baloney – Matthew Continetti

It’s rather sickening to watch self-described liberals embrace China as a responsible power. The headline on the cover of this week’s Economist, which I now read solely to find out what is not the case, is “China: the global grown-up.” The Washington Post purports to explain “Why China will be able to sell itself as the last liberal great power.” These articles, besides being wrong, have the distinction of following the line set by Beijing itself: “China may lead globalization movement,” says propaganda outlet CCTV.

How one can argue that a Communist oligarchy that practices mercantilism and industrial and diplomatic espionage, builds islands in contravention of international law, disappears lawyers and writers critical of the regime, feeds its people a steady diet of ethno-nationalist propaganda, threatens America’s allies, enables the North Korean psycho-state, recently sailed its aircraft carrier through the Taiwan Strait, massively censors the Internet, and has some of the worst air pollution in the world is “liberal” in any sense of the term is beyond me. Ironic, isn’t it, that the same press that examines every utterance of Donald Trump with Talmudic scrutiny is utterly credulous when Chinese leader Xi Jinping, who is quite self-consciously modeling himself after Mao Zedong, tells the elite assembled at Davos that he will defend free trade and – I had to laugh – immigration. How many Syrian refugees are there in China?

Trudeau Booed At Town Hall As Polls Show His Horrific Approval Ratings – USA Politics Today

Liberal Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s approval ratings have fallen to the lowest since he took office almost 4 years ago.

“Those are the worst numbers Forum – or any other pollster – has registered for Trudeau since he became prime minister,” the firm notes.

The Forum Poll™, a public opinion firm, released their numbers while Trudeau was visiting western Calgary he was met with multiple protestors and hecklers.This pushback comes after statements he has made about “phasing out” oil sands from the nation’s economy.However this comment is not the only reason for his low approval ratings as Trudeau’s approval ratings dropped ten percentage points in November when he came out and praising Communist dictator Fidel Castro.

Trudeau who was almost assured to win the 2018 elections is now in trouble as the approval gap between his Liberal Party and the rival Conservatives is closing.

Trudeau responded to hecklers by saying “As a teacher, I try not to reward bad behaviour by giving them too much attention,”

This comment about teachers came as the heckler and protesters started holding up signs reading “Go Back to Teaching Drama.”

Trudeau’s toughest moment during the town hall, however, was not the booing, but answering a question from a blue collar worker from Calgary who asked him why he is “phasing out” oil sands from the nation’s economy.This heckler said to Mr Trudeau..

IG Investigating Obama Regime Cyber Attacks On Georgia Election System – Daily Caller

Feds have launched an investigation into why the Department of Homeland Security hacked into the Georgia state governmental network, including its election system, The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group has learned.

John Roth, inspector general for DHS, wants to know why the agency broke protocol on its way to 10 unprecedented attacks on the system overseen by Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp – who is also one of the most vocal critics about the Obama administration’s attempt to designate local and state election machinery as part of federal “critical infrastructure.”

A Jan. 17 letter from Roth notified Kemp his office was officially “investigating a series of ten alleged scanning events of the Georgia Secretary of State’s network that may have originated from DHS-affiliated IP addresses.” A firewall in Georgia’s system thwarted each attempt.

Former DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson and Kemp have clashed over a federal government designation of election systems as “critical infrastructure.” Kemp called it “political power play to federalize elections.”

Johnson sparked a firestorm among state-level secretaries of state – Democrat and Republican alike – when he announced Jan. 6, two weeks before leaving office, that he was unilaterally issuing the designation.

If Roth’s investigation shows Johnson or his subordinates deliberately used federal cybersecurity resources to penetrate a state election system in order to pressure a state official over a policy dispute, it could represent a significant scandal for Johnson and for the outgoing Obama administration…

Study: Obama Had Worst Record Before Supreme Court In Modern History – Washington Free Beacon

President Barack Obama had the worst record before the Supreme Court in modern history, losing half of the cases argued before the High Court in his two terms, according to a new study.

While liberals point to legalizing same-sex marriage and the upholding of Obamacare subsidies as cementing the former president’s legacy, the study reveals Obama had a much weaker record with the Supreme Court than previous presidents.

The academic study written by Washington University professor Lee Epstein and University of Chicago law professor Eric Posner found Obama had the “worst record of any President” since Franklin D.

Dear Bernie, Meet The “Big Mac ATM” That Will Replace All Of Your $15 Per Hour Fast Food Workers – Zero Hedge

Dear Bernie, as you continue in your never-ending “Fight for $15”, we thought you might benefit from a simple example of how economics work in a real life, functioning, capitalistic society. You see, Bernie, labor, much like your daily serving of crunchy granola, is just another “good” that businesses can choose to consume more or less of, depending on price. And, just to be crystal clear, when the price of labor (i.e. wages) increases, businesses tend to consume less of it.

Finally, our dearest Bernie, when misinformed politicians radically disrupt labor markets by setting artificially high base prices, like your proposed $15 federal minimum wage, then businesses simply stop consuming labor completely and instead replace that labor with this “Big Mac ATM Machine.”

So, you see Bernie, pretty soon all those McDonald’s workers that you promised a “fair living wage” to make Big Macs, will have absolutely no wages at all courtesy of your “Fight for $15.”

Of course, as the Daily Caller points out, the “Big Mac ATM” is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to low-skilled jobs that will be automated as a result of the $15 minimum wage that has already been passed in several states across the country.

Wendy’s, another popular fast-food establishment, announced plans in May to start installing self-serving kiosks at some of its over 6,000 locations later in the year. The chain is replacing cashiers and other low-skilled jobs with computers and automated machines because, as Wendy’s president Todd Penegor told Investor’s Business Daily, it has to compensate for wage hikes…

Mary Tyler Moore, TV Icon, Dies At 80 – Variety

Television great Mary Tyler Moore, the beloved star of “The Dick Van Dyke Show” and “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” died Wednesday in Connecticut, her publicist confirmed. She was 80.

“Today, beloved icon, Mary Tyler Moore, passed away at the age of 80 in the company of friends and her loving husband of over 33 years, Dr. S. Robert Levine,” read the statement from Mara Buxbaum, her longtime rep. “A groundbreaking actress, producer, and passionate advocate for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Mary will be remembered as a fearless visionary who turned the world on with her smile.”

The vivacious brunette performer transformed the image of women on television first as Van Dyke’s sexy, vulnerable wife Laura Petrie and then as single career girl Mary Richards in her own series. Her work in the two series brought Moore five Emmy Awards, in 1965, 1966, 1973, 1974 and 1976. She won another Emmy for 1993 TV special “Stolen Babies.”

Moore was also a powerhouse producer via her MTM production company with then-husband Grant Tinker, producing her own series as well as “The Bob Newhart Show” and spinoff series “Rhoda” and “Lou Grant,” among others.

She combined wholesomeness and sex appeal with cracker-jack comedic timing. In many ways Moore was a throwback to Hollywood golden era leading ladies like Myrna Loy and Jean Arthur, but with a decidedly updated twist.

Trump Orders Construction Of Border Wall, Targets Sanctuary Cities – Fox News

The orders cover a range of immigration enforcement measures. The marquee item is a directive to pursue a southern border wall.

“A nation without borders is not a nation,” Trump declared after signing the measures, while speaking to employees at the Department of Homeland Security. “Beginning today, the United States of America gets back control of its borders.”

California Asian Restaurant Gives Diner ‘Seen Rat’ Discount – American Mirror

Seeing a rat scurrying around in a restaurant may be enough for any diner to lose her appetite, but apparently the experience is now good enough for a discount, too.

A patron of Fat’s Asian Bistro in Folsom, California allegedly saw a rat while eating at the restaurant last Thursday, claiming it “ran around her feet” during her meal.

Hot 98.3 reports the woman “who believed she would be speaking to a manager at Fat’s Asian Bistro after reporting the incident, was instead handed a receipt with a $30.95 ‘SEEN RAT’ discount.”

That amounted to a roughly 30% decrease in her $116.80 bill.

“The manager put it verbatim what the guest saw or stated, that’s not normal practice,” Restaurant Group Manager Kevin Fat tells News 10.

“In our 14 years in Folsom, we have not experienced something like this before.”

It’s not clear why the manager didn’t inquire, but instead simply offered the discount.

“That’s something that that manager at the time thought was appropriate, [it’s a] learning lesson,” Fat says.

According to the owner, restaurant staff immediately notified pest control, who found no evidence of the rat.

“For example there were no droppings, there were no live or dead bodies, no nesting, no gnawed food packages,” Kelly McCoy, a health inspector from the Sacramento County Environmental Management Department, says…

Trump State Department Freezes Obama’s $221M Gift To Palestinians – World Israel News

Former US President Barack Obama, in his waning hours, quietly released $221 million to the Palestinian Authority (PA), which Congress had been blocking.

The Trump administration announced it is freezing the move.

The State Department is reviewing the last-minute decision by former Secretary of State John Kerry to send $221 million dollars to the Palestinians.

Kerry formally notified Congress that State would release the money Friday morning, just hours before President Donald Trump took the oath of office.

The funds – supposedly intended for reconstruction in Gaza and good governance programs for the Palestinian Authority – were being blocked by at least two Republican lawmakers- Ed Royce (R-CA), the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and Kay Granger (R-TX), who sits on the House Appropriations Committee – in response to Palestinian attempts to join international organizations, from which it intended to launch more international campaigns against Israel and before a peace deal with Israel.

Such holds are generally respected but are not legally binding.

When asked about the transfer by a reporter during Tuesday’s press briefing, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said that “[Trump] is very concerned about how taxpayer money is spent, whether it’s sent overseas and what we get for it in terms of the relationship or our support for a democracy or aid to another country for their defenses. But he’s going to be examining all aspects of the budget… He’s going to make sure that every deal, every dollar that is spent by the government is done in a way that respects the American taxpayer.”…

Democrats And Republicans Unite To Rescind Last-Minute Obama Order Seeking Federal Election Takeover – Daily Caller

All 50 state secretaries of state are urging the Trump administration to rescind a last-minute Department of Homeland Security directive calling state election systems “critical infrastructure.”

Many state officials fear this is the first step toward a federal takeover of state-run elections, The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned.

While deep political discord may be found on other issues, state secretaries – who oversee all election machinery – appear completely united against the former administration’s attempt to insert the federal government into state-run elections.

Texas Governor Abbott Threatens To Cut Funding To Travis County Over Illegal ‘Sanctuary City’ Policies – Fox News

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott threatened to cut funding for one county after its sheriff announced the agency would be scaling back its cooperation with federal immigration.

Travis County Sheriff Sally Hernandez announced last week she’s scaling back the amount of aid her department provides federal immigration agents in detaining suspects who might be in the country illegally, according to the Austin American-Statesman.

Starting Feb. 1, sheriff’s officials will begin honoring so-called immigration holds or “detainers” placed by federal authorities only when a suspect is booked into the Travis County Jail on charges of capital murder, aggravated sexual assault and “continuous smuggling of persons.”

Otherwise, federal agents must have a court order or arrest warrant signed by a judge for the jail to continue housing a person whose immigration status is in question.

“The public must be confident that local law enforcement is focused on local public safety, not on federal immigration enforcement. Our jail cannot be perceived as a holding tank for ICE or that Travis County deputies are ICE officers,” Hernandez said.

Hernandez’s announcement came as Texas Republicans are gearing up for a new fight to ban so-called sanctuary cities in the current legislative session.

Trump Orders Media Blackout At Government Agencies: Bans Use Of Social Media, Bars New EPA Contracts – Zero Hedge

It wasn’t just the EPA.

Earlier today, we reported that the Trump administration instituted a media blackout at the Environmental Protection Agency and barred staff from awarding any new contracts or grants.

Emails sent to EPA staff since President Donald Trump’s inauguration on Friday and reviewed by The Associated Press, detailed the specific prohibitions banning press releases, blog updates or posts to the agency’s social media accounts. On Monday, the Huffington Post reported that EPA grants had been frozen, with agency employees barred from speaking of the matter.

Cited by The Hill, Myron Ebell, who leads the Trump EPA transition, confirmed the freeze to ProPublica. “They’re trying to freeze things to make sure nothing happens they don’t want to have happen, so any regulations going forward, contracts, grants, hires, they want to make sure to look at them first,” Ebell told ProPublica. Trump’s pick for EPA director, Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt, has frequently challenged agency policy in court.

The Trump administration reportedly told the Department of the Interior to stop tweeting from its accounts over the weekend after the National Park Service’s Twitter account retweeted a post about the crowd sizes at Trump’s inauguration Friday. The agency brought back its accounts on Saturday.

Planned Parenthood: ‘We Don’t Offer Prenatal Care’ – WorldNetDaily

Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards is on record stating her business is essential to American women because of the prenatal care it offers.

She is emphasizing that point as a move develops in Congress to withhold the half-a-billion taxpayer dollars that each year goes to the abortion-industry behemoth.

The funding must continue, Richards said, because prenatal care is among “the kinds of services that folks depend on Planned Parenthood for.”

The problem?

Planned Parenthood “offers abortions, so they don’t offer prenatal care,” according to a Tempe, Arizona, spokeswoman for the business.

That’s right. The service Planned Parenthood says is so important, it doesn’t provide.

The nonprofit Live Action, in a new video investigation, found 92 out of 97 Planned Parenthood centers contacted admitted they would refuse to provide any prenatal care.

Of the other five, one said it was not accepting new patients, and another said it could provide vitamins.

“No, see, we don’t see pregnant women as a way of giving prenatal care, we see pregnant women, um, you know, if they are considering other options,” was from Planned Parenthood in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

“No, we don’t do prenatal services. I mean, it’s called Planned Parenthood, I know it’s kind of deceiving,” said a Merrillville, Indiana, spokeswoman…

Crazed Leftist Charged With Threatening To Assassinate Trump Is Close Family Friend Of Clintons – Daily Mail

The man arrested by Miami Beach police Tuesday for allegedly threatening President-elect Donald Trump online is a member of a prominent northeast family close to Bill and Hillary Clinton.

He once gave $20,000 to the Democratic National Committee, DailyMail.com has learned.

Suspect Dominic Puopolo Jr., 51, sat near Hillary Clinton when she delivered the eulogy at the funeral of Puopolo’s mother, Sonia, who died in one of the jets that flew into the World Trade Center on 9-11.

During that eulogy on Oct. 6, 2001 in Boston, the former presidential candidate referred to ‘Dom Jr.’s latest computer wizardry.’

The ‘wizard’ is now being held in a Miami-Dade County jail after using Twitter to threaten Trump’s life.

Trump is scheduled to be sworn in Friday in Washington, D.C. as Puopolo remains incarcerated on a charge of threatening to harm a public servant.

Puopolo reportedly admitted to posting a video to Twitter, saying: ‘This is the 16th of January 2017, I will be at the review/ inauguration and I will kill President Trump, President elect Trump today.’

He was nabbed after leaving a Washington Avenue Subway sandwich shop about 4 p.m. Tuesday.

Puopolo, however, may not be the average Trump hater.

Body Of Missing Mother Of Two Found In Suitcase In Leicester Alleyway – Daily Mail

Police have named a suspected murder victim whose body was found in a suitcase.

The remains of Next call centre worker Kiran Daudia were discovered dumped in an alleyway in Evington, Leicester, on Tuesday morning.

A 50-year-old man who was arrested on suspicion of Mrs Daudia’s murder has now been charged with the offence.

Ashwin Daudia, of Lyme Road, Leicester, will appear at Leicester Magistrates’ Court on Thursday morning.

Police have appealed for witnesses who may have seen anyone pulling a suitcase in the area in the late afternoon or early evening of Monday, to come forward.

Details of the suitcase in which the body was found, such as its make or colour, have also not been revealed. However police have confirmed the suitcase had wheels.

A post-mortem examination is set to be carried out to determine how Mrs Daudia, who had worked for retail giant Next for over 17 years and is thought to have two adult sons, died.

In a statement her devastated family said: ‘Kiran was a much loved mum, daughter, sister and auntie, and she will be deeply missed by us all.

‘We ask that our privacy be respected during this very difficult time.’

A member of the public made the discovery of 46-year-old Mrs Daudia’s body in an alleyway between two terraced homes.

Forensic officers carried out a number of searches after the grim find, and doo–to-door enquires were carried out in the area…

CBS Finally Treats ‘Pizzagate’ Like A Real News Story – Your News Wire

CBS claims that the Pizzagate story, which suggests an elite pedophile ring operates out of Washington DC, is real and needs to be investigated by the FBI.

According to CBS host Ben Swann, evidence collected by alternative media researchers provides “compelling evidence” that high level government officials such as John Podesta and Hillary Clinton may be connected to some kind of child sex scandal – a claim the alternative media have been making for months.

Ben uploaded his segment to his Facebook page on Tuesday, asking the very good question “why is no one investigating this?“

The answer to this question is that like so many scandals involving the elite – a huge cover-up is likely underway in which the elites in government, media and law enforcement are trying to bury this story as deep as possible and keep it from public view…

Obama Scores The Worst Legislative Record In History – Washington Times

President Obama oversaw the deepest legislative malaise in modern political history, according to the Washington Times Legislative Index, which captures his struggles to find ways to work with a Congress that ranged from lukewarm to openly hostile toward him.

Over the course of his eight years, he has signed just 1,227 bills into law – less, even, than one-term Presidents Carter and George H.W. Bush. Digging deeper into the numbers, Congress spent less time in session, handled fewer business on the chamber floors and generally sputtered for much of Mr. Obama’s tenure, according to The Times’ index.

Blame for the poor showing falls across Washington. Some analysts say a Congress with four years of divided control hamstrung Mr. Obama, while others say the president failed to find ways to work with the legislature that voters gave him – particularly after the 2010 elections.

“The president was never good at reaching across the aisle. So when the composition of Congress changed relative to what it was in his first two years, he wasn’t able to accommodate that very well,” said Andrew Busch, a presidential scholar at Claremont McKenna College in California. “He never accustomed himself to operating in a system where he was not the sole player.”

It’s all the more stunning for Mr. Obama having emerged from the legislature himself, having served first in the Illinois Statehouse and then in the U.S. Senate, where he spent two years in a Republican-controlled Congress and two years in a Democrat-run Congress…

Nutbag Feminist Exposes Her Breasts During Unveiling Of Trump Exhibit At Wax Museum – Universal Free Press

President Asshat Commutes Sentence Of Unrepentant Marxist Terrorist Oscar Lopez-Rivera – Right Wing News

Obama came into office as the antidote to all those irritating flags liberals had to look at after 9/11. He was elected as the quintessential “other,” a guy who sees himself as a Citizen of the World, who conspicuously does not like America, and who promised to redeem us for our alleged sins against political correctness by bringing us down a few notches vis-à-vis other countries. With just a few days left of his disgraceful presidency, he continues to deliver. Commuting the sentence of a traitor who should have been executed wasn’t enough; he has done the same for vicious Marxist terrorist Oscar Lopez-Rivera:

With Obama’s commutation, Lopez, 74, will leave prison by May 17.

Like other sociopathic maniacs who have gone out of their way to deserve the death penalty (e.g., Mumia Abu-Jamal, Tookie Williams), Lopez is a cause célèbre among left-wing extremists.

Former President Jimmy Carter, Pope Francis and U.S. Rep. Luis Gutierrez of Illinois’ 4th district supported his release, as did South African Archbishop Desmond Tutu.

Here is how Lopez won their hearts:

Lopez was a leader of FALN, the Spanish acronym for the Armed Forces of National Liberation. He was found guilty in U.S. District Court in Chicago in 1981 of weapons, explosives and seditious conspiracy charges, and sentenced to 55 years in prison. He received an additional 15 years in 1988 after he was convicted of plotting to escape from federal prison.

FALN’s goal was a free [from America, Puerto Rican voters be damned] and socialist Puerto Rico. The group was primarily active in New York and Chicago and claimed responsibility for more than 140 bombings since 1974. Authorities connected five deaths to the bomb blasts. Another 100 people were maimed by the bombings, authorities said…

Religion Of Peace Update: Mali Suicide Bomber Kills At Least 60 – Toronto Star

A suicide bomber in an explosives-laden vehicle attacked a camp in northern Mali on Wednesday, killing at least 60 people and wounding 115 soldiers and former fighters who are trying to stabilize the region. The attack marked a significant setback for peace efforts.

Suspicion quickly fell on the Islamic extremist groups operating in the area which oppose the 2015 peace agreement that brought the parties together. A Mauritanian news agency that frequently receives communications from extremist groups, Alakhbar, said a group linked to al-Qaeda’s North Africa branch, al-Mourabitoun, had claimed responsibility.

The morning blast hit the Joint Operational Mechanism base in the city of Gao, home to Malian soldiers and hundreds of former fighters who signed the peace agreement with the government. Witnesses said the car breached the camp as hundreds of fighters were gathering for a meeting.

The office of Mali’s president late Wednesday put the provisional death toll at 60, with 115 wounded.

Dr. Sadou Maiga at Gao’s hospital told The Associated Press that all other hospital activities had ceased with dozens of wounded victims arriving.

“Some have died from their wounds, and others are in a very grave state,” he said. “At this point, it’s not the toll of dead and injured that interests me, it’s saving who I can.”

The attack underscores the enormous challenges that remain in northern Mali four years after the French military led an intervention to drive the jihadists from power in the major towns across the north. The peace agreement has proved difficult to implement…

11th-Hour Screwjob: Obama Regime Throws Another $500 Million Down UN Global Warming Rathole – CNS

The State Department on Tuesday announced it has transferred a further $500 million to a U.N.-affiliated global climate change fund whose congressional critics have derided as a ‘slush fund” and “handout to foreign bureaucrats.”

The move comes three days before the inauguration of a president who pledged days before his election victory to “cancel billions in global warming payments to the United Nations” and devote funds instead to “environmental infrastructure” at home.

The $500 million is the second transfer to the Green Climate Fund, whose aim is to help developing countries reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and adapt to occurrences blamed on climate change such as rising sea-levels and drought.

President Obama pledged $3 billion to the GCF over four years, and a first instalment, also $500 million, was paid last March.

Critics in Congress at the time charged that the disbursement was a waste of taxpayers’ money, and pointed out that Congress had not authorized or appropriated any funding for the GCF.

Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), who has led the criticism, on Tuesday called the latest payment “an insult to American taxpayers.”

“The hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars the Obama administration spent on the United Nations Green Climate Fund were never approved by Congress,” he said.

“The Obama administration is now sending this slush fund another $500 million in its final days in the White House,” Barrasso added…

Trump Eyes 10% Spending Cuts, 20% Slash Of Federal Workers – Washington Examiner

Making good on a promise to slash government, President-elect Trump has asked his incoming team to pursue spending and staffing cuts.

Insiders said that the spending reductions in some departments could go as high as 10 percent and staff cuts to 20 percent, numbers that would rock Washington if he follows through.

At least two so-called “landing teams” in Cabinet agencies have relayed the call for cuts as part of their marching orders to shrink the flab in government.

The cuts would target discretionary spending, not mandated programs such as Medicare or Social Security, the sources said.

The spending reductions are expected to be used to help pay for Trump’s plan to boost the Pentagon’s budget, tax cuts and some pet projects, potentially including the anti-immigration wall on the nation’s southern border.

The teams also are looking at staffing cuts over four years through attrition, a hiring freeze and reorganization.

The plan is winning cheers in conservative, anti-tax and anti-spending corners in Washington that have long sought massive cuts in the bureaucracy.

Presidents rarely cut spending, choosing freezes instead. In the meantime, federal spending has reached historic levels. Trump has picked a budget hawk, Rep. Mick Mulvaney, to head the Office of Management and Budget, a clear sign that spending cuts are a top priority.

Still, Trump is likely to face a wall of opposition from Democrats and federal unions who consider much of the federal workforce on their side…

Assange Lawyer: Manning Commutation Doesn’t Meet Extradition Offer’s Conditions – The Hill

The attorney for Julian Assange said President Obama’s commutation of Chelsea Manning’s sentence does not meet the conditions of the WikiLeaks head’s offer to be extradited to the United States if Manning were pardoned.

Obama on Tuesday commuted Manning’s sentence for leaking classified information to WikiLeaks, leading many to wonder whether that meant Assange was ready to surrender to the Department of Justice.

“Mr. Assange welcomes the announcement that Ms. Manning’s sentence will be reduced and she will be released in May, but this is well short of what he sought,” said Barry Pollack, Assange’s U.S.-based attorney, via email.

“Mr. Assange had called for Chelsea Manning to receive clemency and be released immediately.”

Assange has not been publicly charged with a crime in the United States, but his legal team believes he may be charged “under seal,” where charges are kept secret to prevent a suspect from preparing an escape.

Assange first offered in September to trade extradition to the U.S. for a pardon for Manning. He reiterated the claim as recently as last week on Twitter.

“If Obama grants Manning clemency Assange will agree to US extradition despite clear unconstitutionality of DoJ case,” tweeted WikiLeaks’s official account on Thursday.

On Tuesday, the White House denied that tweet had anything to do with commuting Manning’s sentence…

President Barack Obama granted clemency to Chelsea Manning on Tuesday, allowing the transgender Army intelligence officer convicted of leaking more than 700,000 U.S. documents to go free nearly three decades early.

Embracing his clemency powers days before leaving office, Obama also pardoned 64 individuals including retired Gen. James Cartwright, charged with making false statements during another leak probe. Manning was one of 209 inmates with sentences commuted by Obama, who has now granted more commutations than any other president in history.

Trump Effect: Hyundai-Kia To Spend $3.1 Billion In U.S. Over 5 Years – Detroit News

Hyundai Motor Co. and affiliate Kia Motors Corp. said they will spend $3.1 billion in the U.S. in the next five years, joining other vehicle manufacturers in announcing investment plans amid threats from President-elect Donald Trump of higher levies on auto imports from Mexico.

The planned U.S. investment by South Korea’s two largest automakers is about 50 percent more than the $2.1 billion they spent in the previous five-year period, Hyundai Motor President Chung Jin-haeng told reporters in Seoul on Tuesday. The group is considering building a new factory in the U.S. and may produce Hyundai Motor’s upscale Genesis vehicles and a U.S.-specific SUV in the country, said the executive, who also oversees the strategic planning for Kia.

“We expect a boost in the U.S. economy and increased demand for various models as President-elect Trump follows through on his promise to create one million jobs in five years,” Chung said. “We will actively consider introducing new models that have increasing demand and profits.”

Hyundai Motor and Kia join a growing list of automakers announcing investments in the U.S., even though they have yet to be singled out by Trump. Toyota Motor Corp., Ford Motor Co. and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV said this month they’ll spend on U.S. plants after the president-elect threatened for months to slap Mexico-built vehicles with a 35 percent import tax. Carmakers are eager to cooperate with the incoming administration as they prepare to ask for favors including weaker fuel economy rules and lower corporate taxes…

Man Accused Of Driving 132 MPH On Turnpike, Crashing Into Garbage Truck – Orlando Sentinel

A 20-year-old Clermont man driving more than 130 mph on Florida’s Turnpike crashed into a garbage truck Tuesday, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Daniele Heller was driving south on the turnpike near West Colonial Drive in Orange County “at a high rate of speed” about 8:20 a.m. Witnesses told FHP troopers he drove onto the left shoulder of the road to pass a car but lost control of his 2013 Nissan, FHP spokeswoman Sgt. Kim Montes said.

Heller hit the center barrier wall on the turnpike, Montes said, then struck a garbage truck driven by 60-year-old Carlos Guivas of Deltona.

Heller suffered minor injuries, Montes said. Guivas was not injured.

Earlier Tuesday morning, an FHP trooper clocked Heller at 132 mph, Montes said. The trooper said it looked like Heller was racing another car before the crash. That vehicle was not found.

Heller was arrested and booked into the Orange County Jail on a reckless driving charge. His bond is set at $500, according to jail records…

MLK III Refuses To Take Parasitic CNN Reporter’s Bait, Attack Trump – American Mirror

All the media wanted Martin Luther King III to do today was attack Donald Trump.

He refused to take the bait.

Raw video from the King’s brief appearance before the press in Trump Tower shows reporters – including CNN’s Jim Acosta – asking loaded questions in a vain attempt to get Martin Luther King, Jr.’s son to criticize the president-elect.

President Asshat Names Iran Deal Salesman To Holocaust Memorial Council – The Hill

President Obama on Tuesday appointed deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Council, part of a slew of appointments given to high-profile staff and supporters in the final days of his presidency.

Rhodes, whose mother is Jewish, played a key role in shaping Obama’s foreign policy during his eight years in the White House.

He also came under fire from some U.S. Jewish groups for his role in selling the Iran nuclear deal and the administration’s decision to allow a resolution condemning Israeli settlement activity to pass the U.N. Security Council.

Congress created the council in 1980 to boost awareness of the Nazi genocide and raise money for the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington.

Presidential appointees serve five-year terms and make up some of the 68-member board, which also includes lawmakers and Cabinet officials.

Vote-A-Rama Ends With Senate Passing Obamacare Repeal – Breitbart

All Republicans, except for Sen. Rand Paul (R.-KY), voted for the resolution. Paul criticized the budget resolution for not addressing the federal debt and for not having a companion replacement bill. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D.-CA), who is recovering from a scheduled medical procedure was absent from the chamber.

Judge Rules Woman Can’t Sue Trump For Calling Her A “Dummy” On Twitter – CBS News

Donald Trump can’t be sued for defamation by a political strategist who said her reputation was trashed after then-candidate Trump called her a “dummy” on Twitter during last year’s presidential campaign, according to a judge’s decision made public Tuesday.

Manhattan state Supreme Court Judge Barbara Jaffe ruled that though Mr. Trump’s tweets about public relations strategist and Republican consultant Cheryl Jacobus were “rife with vague and simplistic insults,” they were expressions of opinion protected by the First Amendment.

“Thus, although the intemperate tweets are clearly intended to belittle and demean plaintiff,” they wouldn’t prevent her from working as a consultant and political commentator, Jaffe wrote in a 20-page decision signed Monday.

Jacobus’ lawyer, Jay Butterman, vowed to appeal the decision, adding that the ruling had effectively given “now President-elect Donald Trump a free pass to trample on the free speech rights of any critic.”

Larry Rosen, Mr. Trump’s attorney, called Jaffe’s decision “well-reasoned.” A transition spokeswoman didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

The case has its roots in a February appearance Jacobus made on CNN, in which she said the Republican candidate’s presidential campaign had not been transparent about its financing.

Jacobus had previously had two meetings with then-Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski in the summer of 2015 about a possible job with the campaign…

Michigan Man Issued Parking Ticket In His Own Driveway – Zero Hedge

The state of Michigan is not exactly known for its balmy weather this time of year.

And residents reasonably do what they have to do to cope with often extreme winter temperatures.

Last Thursday a man named Taylor Trupiano of Roseville, Michigan did what a lot of people do in cold climates.

He walked out of his house, started his car, turned on the heat, and went back inside for a few minutes while his engine and vehicle interior warmed up.

According to Mr. Trupiano, he was only inside for about 7 or 8 minutes.

But by the time he came back to his car, there was already a parking ticket on his windshield– with a fine totaling $128.

Some local police officer had apparently driven by, noticed the vehicle was unattended, written up this heinous infraction, and left.

There are so many things wrong with this picture it’s hard to know where to begin.

First off, the citation that Mr. Trupiano received was a parking ticket. Yet his car was parked on his own private property.

Let that sink in: this man received a parking ticket while his car was parked on his own property.

You can’t even park your car on your own property anymore without being in violation of some series of laws, rules, or local ordinances.

The city government’s reasoning is that, if you leave a vehicle unattended, it may encourage car thieves to steal it.

This is pretty flimsy logic.

Sure, maybe if a car thief is standing right there he/she may take the opportunity…

Obama’s War On Police Continues With Sneaky Thing He’s Ramming Through Before Trump’s Inauguration – Fury News
.

.
Ironically in the wake of the kidnapping and torture of a mentally handicap boy by 4 Black Lives Matter supporters in Chicago, Obama feels the need to push for overhauls of the police in Chicago and Baltimore.

That’s right. Obama blames the crime rate in the two most violent cities in America on the police and wants to push as hard as he can for a complete overhaul before Trump takes over. So, instead of addressing the crimes and those who perpetrate them the most in these two cities Obama is instead holding the ones who are trying to stop the crime as the responsible party.

Does anyone else think this is the most asinine thing ever, or is it just me?

The mainstream media is running with this story as a way to “outline police brutality against the black communities,” yet NO ONE wants to add or outline the black on black crime rates in these cities…

Navy Submariner Invokes Hillary Clinton Defense In Bid For Clemency Over Classified Photographs – Washington Times

A former Navy submariner sent to prison for photographing his ship’s classified engine compartments has filed a presidential clemency request, arguing that President-elect Donald Trump should realize the sailor was a “scapegoat” amid the FBI probe into Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified material.

The paperwork was filed Monday with the Justice Department’s office of the pardon attorney, which now will conduct an investigation.

The case of former Machinist Mate 1st Class Kristian Saucier has become a cause celebre for conservatives. They watched the young sailor go to prison for carelessness with classified information while Mrs. Clinton avoided any punishment from the Obama administration.

The inmate’s mother, Kathleen Saucier, became his public advocate in TV interviews during the presidential campaign. She told The Washington Times that her message to Mr. Trump, who takes office Jan. 20, is: “I would like to say to Mr. Trump that I believe that he’s our hope to re-evaluate the way things are done in our government and that we, as American patriots, should never have to be in the position that myself and my family and I am sure many others have been.”

Saucier pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court to a charge of unauthorized retention of defense information and was sentenced Aug. 16 to a year in prison. For what he calls a “keepsake,” he took six cellphone pictures of his work area aboard the nuclear attack submarine USS Alexandria in 2009. They remained in his phone…

ABC’s Ratings Plunge When Megyn Kelly Appears – WorldNetDaily

Trump Selects David Shulkin As VA Secretary – Daily Caller

GOP President-elect Donald Trump has selected current Department of Veterans Affairs official David Shulkin to serve as head of the agency.

In his first press conference since July, Trump announced Wednesday that he was picking Shulkin, current under secretary for health, to serve as secretary of the VA.

Such a move is monumental, as Shulkin, if confirmed, would be the first non-veteran to ever serve in the position, which may come off as odd to some observers.

Trump emphasized during his campaign how highly he thinks of veterans, and so has tapped top generals for positions, namely retired Marine Corps Gen. James Mattis for secretary of defense, retired Marine Corps Gen. John Kelly for secretary of Homeland Security and former Army Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn for national security adviser.

Shulkin was picked for his current position by President Barack Obama in 2015 and has testified numerous times before Congress about VA scandals, meaning he will be somewhat of a familiar face to legislators and also personally familiar with the process of being endlessly questioned.

The selection process for the position of VA secretary was much lengthier than initially anticipated and involved many candidates dropping out of the running and gaining favor, losing it and gaining it again. Several times, Pete Hegseth, former CEO of Concerned Veterans for America, was believed to be a top candidate for the post, just like former GOP Sen. Scott Brown, but at the end of the day, the two fell out of favor…

In his opening remarks to the press Trump addressed the report and praised the media, which had seen the report over the summer but could not verify the claims and did not report on it. He questioned whether the intelligence agencies leaked the document to the media and said it would be a “tremendous blot” on them if they did.

NYT Accuses CNN, BuzzFeed Of Peddling “Fake News” Over Russia Report – Zero Hedge

In a fascinating retort by the left-leaning NYT to the story of the day, namely the CNN-BuzzFeed narrative based on an unverified 35-page memo allegedly prepared by a UK intelligence officer, even “the paper of record” takes the two media outlets to town, and in an article titled “BuzzFeed Posts Unverified Claims on Trump, Stirring Debate” essentially accuses them of doing what CNN has accused so much of the ‘alternative media’ in doing when distributing “fake news.”

Here are the key excerpts:

The reports by CNN and Buzzfeed sent other news organizations, including The New York Times and The Washington Post, scrambling to publish their own articles, some of which included generalized descriptions of the unverified allegations about Mr. Trump. By late Tuesday, though, only BuzzFeed had published the full document.

BuzzFeed’s decision, besides its immediate political ramifications for a president-elect who is to be inaugurated in 10 days, was sure to accelerate a roiling debate about the role and credibility of the traditional media in today’s frenetic, polarized information age.

And the punchline, where the NYT essentially accuses both CNN and BuzzFeed of stooping to the level of “fake news” disseminators:

Of particular interest was the use of unsubstantiated information from anonymous sources, a practice that fueled some of the so-called fake news – false rumors passed off as legitimate journalism – that proliferated during the presidential election…

Shocker: Intelligence Report Shows Released GITMO Terrorists Are Returning To Terrorism – WFB

A senior House Republican urged President Obama on Tuesday to “immediately halt” the transfer of Guantanamo Bay detainees, citing a new intelligence report that found recently released prisoners were returning to terrorism.

House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce wrote in a letter to Obama that his administration was knowingly transferring detainees to countries that lack the ability to prevent terrorists from returning to the “battlefield,” the Hill reported.

“The committee has just received a troubling new report from the intelligence community indicating that former detainees recently transferred out of Guantanamo Bay by your administration are attempting to return to terrorism,” Royce wrote.

“Your efforts to close the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay cannot come at the expense of U.S. national security,” he continued.

The Defense Department last week transferred four detainees to Saudi Arabia and another one to Cabo Verde in December. It is unclear from Royce’s letter whether these prisoners had attempted to return to terrorism.

The White House told Congress last month it intended to transfer 17 or 18 detainees from the military prison before the close of the Obama administration on Jan. 20. If the administration is successful, 41 or 42 prisoners would remain in Guantanamo under President-elect Donald Trump.

Trump warned the president against pursuing additional transfers before he takes office.

“There should be no further releases from Gitmo. These are extremely dangerous people and should not be allowed back onto the battlefield,” Trump recently wrote on Twitter…

President Asshat Approves 130 Tons Of Uranium Shipped To Iran Via Russia – Daily Wire

Unsatisfied with stoking the fiery cauldrons of Islamic fundamentalism with his weak-kneed response during his eight-year tenure, Barack Obama has now enabled Iran, the world’s leading sponsor of terrorism, to speed ever-closer toward successful attainment of nuclear weapons, approving a secret delivery of roughly 130 tons of uranium for the fundamentalist Iranian regime.

As AP reports, the move to send Iran the uranium from Russia is supposedly to curry favor with Iran so it will remain committed to the nuclear deal it negotiated with the West:

Iran is to receive a huge shipment of natural uranium from Russia to compensate it for exporting tons of reactor coolant, diplomats say, in a move approved by the outgoing U.S. administration and other governments seeking to keep Tehran committed to a landmark nuclear pact…

Screeching Leftist Douchebags Crawl Out Of Woodwork During Sessions’ Confirmation Hearing – Zero Hedge

With opening comments barely underway, several protesters have already been escorted out of Senator Jeff Sessions’ confirmation hearing.

The first interruption came from these lovely gentemen who, dressed in KKK garb, shouted “White people don’t get arrested… white people own this country” as they were quickly escorted by police off the premises.

Lawyer: Afghan Murderer Attacked Cops With Claw Hammer Because Left-Hand Drive Britain Is Too Stressful – Breitbart

An Afghan migrant, who was convicted of beheading a woman in the Netherlands, walked unchecked into the UK where he went on to brutally attack two police officers with a claw hammer.

Jamshid Piruz’s lawyer defended his actions by insisting the “offence was committed at a time of stress for my client” as he “was in a foreign country” and was “very confused by the vehicles driving on a different side of the road,” reports to the Daily Mail.

He had been sentenced to 12 years in jail for slaughtering a female tenant in the Netherlands in 2006. The judge rejected his insanity plea, and court documents said he was “inspired by Taliban movies” and had acted “intentionally and with premeditation”.

However, no alarm was raised when he entered the UK because Mr. Piruz was a permanent resident of the Netherlands and could take advantage of European Union (EU) open borders.

Furthermore, under EU rules, other member states have no compulsion to inform the UK about convicts and dangerous persons who could enter the country, and some nations do not even keep such records.

When inside the UK, the unemployed 34-year-old began his crime spree within days by assaulting a member of staff at Gatwick Airport. Yet, he was back on the streets days later after being released by local magistrates.

He then, on January 7 2016 attacked two police officers with a claw hammer, hospitalising one with head injuries…

Sore Loser Faces 53 Charges For Harassing And Threatening State Lottery Office Because She Hasn’t Won The Jackpot – Real Strategy

Some people just can’t lose gracefully. Then again, in this particular instance I’m talking about the state loterry, which has also been referred to as, “a tax on people who flunked math”.

One Philadelphia, Pennsylvania woman, 47-year-old Towanda Shields, isn’t just frustrated that she keeps losing that big jackpot on her scratch off tickets. She’s outright pissed. She’s so pissed, in fact, that she has called the state lotto office dozens of times and threatened the lives of pretty much everyone there.

Via Yahoo! News:

“From the calls and stuff I’ve listened to, she’s basically completely obsessed with the lottery and the fact that she doesn’t win upsets her very much,” Detective Robert Appleby said. “She would get really sexually explicit with her insults.”

Appleby said that in late October, Shields said someone would die at the retail store where she buys tickets. He said she has also told lottery employees she had searched for them online, knew where they lived and had hired someone to hurt their family members…

“She basically taunted me the one time when I spoke to her as well – ‘I switch phones. Y’all will never figure out where I am,’” Appleby said.

She likes to end some of her threats with the lottery tagline “Keep on scratchin’”.

Shields claims the First Amendment gives her the right to make the threatening calls, so she keeps buying cheap burner cell phones to continue making threatening phone calls to the lotto office. Due to some of the information she provided in her over 21 voicemails the office retained, the cops were able to determine her identity easily enough, so the burner phones aren’t really helping her all that much…

Israel’s ‘Flying Car’ Passenger Drone Moves Closer To Delivery – Reuters

After 15 years of development, an Israeli tech firm is optimistic it will finally get its 1,500 kg (1.5 tonne) passenger carrying drone off the ground and into the market by 2020.

The Cormorant, billed as a flying car, is capable of transporting 500kg (around half a tonne) of weight and traveling at 185 km (115 miles) per hour. It completed its first automated solo flight over terrain in November. Its total price is estimated at $14 million.

Developers Urban Aeronautics believe the dark green drone, which uses internal rotors rather than helicopter propellers, could evacuate people from hostile environments and/or allow military forces safe access.

“Just imagine a dirty bomb in a city and chemical substance of something else and this vehicle can come in robotically, remotely piloted, come into a street and decontaminate an area,” Urban Aeronautics founder and CEO Rafi Yoeli told Reuters.

Yoeli set up the company, based in a large hanger in Yavne, central Israel, in 2001 to create the drone, which he says is safer than a helicopter as it can fly in between buildings and below power lines without the risk of blade strikes.

There is still plenty of work required before the autonomous vehicle hits the market.

The Cormorant, about the size of a family car and previously called the ‘Air Mule’, is yet to meet all Federal Aviation Administration standards and a test in November saw small issues with conflicting data sent by on board sensors…

Ignorant Masses Shocked By Philly Beveage Tax Impact – Burning Platform

Check out the receipt pictured below and you realize why the country just elected Donald Trump. Liberal Democrat scumbag mayor Jim Kenney and his entirely Democrat city council thought it was a brilliant idea to ram a beverage tax down the throats of Philadelphians last year. They were doing it for the chilruns. It’s always for the chilrun. The ignorant masses bought the load of bullshit because they don’t understand maff. They understand it now. The tax went into effect on January 1 and the sticker shock is infuriating the ignorant masses.

This receipt for a 10 pack of flavored water shows a 51% beverage tax. It gets even better. PA has a sales tax of 6%. Philly already charges another 2% (for the chilruns) to make the sales tax 8%. These bastards now charge the 8% on the original price plus the beverage tax. Last week this purchase came to $6.47. Today it is $9.75.

Now ask yourself, who drinks the most sugary drinks? That’s right. Obese uneducated poor people who are likely to be scraping by on food stamps or very low incomes. Kenney and his liberal minions have fucked over their main voters. This tax is going to drive grocery purchases outside the city and hurt small restaurant owners. It isn’t benefiting kids. It’s funding the bloated pensions of teachers and government employees. Overall tax revenue will decline. Democrats are complete idiots when it comes to economics. Taxing their people to death is destroying Philly.

As a side note, PA, which already had the highest gas tax in the country, increased it by another 8 cents per gallon on January 1…

Julian Assange Reveals Podesta’s Password Was ‘Password’, Says A Child Could Have Hacked His Emails – Fox News

“We published several… emails which show Podesta responding to a phishing email,” Assange said during the first part of the interview, which aired on “Hannity” Tuesday night. “Podesta gave out that his password was the word ‘password’. His own staff said this email that you’ve received, this is totally legitimate. So, this is something… a 14-year-old kid could have hacked Podesta that way.”

Assange also claimed that Clinton herself made “almost no attempt” to keep her private emails safe from potentially hostile states during her tenure as secretary of state.

“Now, was she trying to keep them secure from Republicans? Probably,” Assange said. “But in terms of [nation-] states, almost no attempt.”

Hannity interviewed Assange at the Ecuadorean Embassy in London. The Australia native has been holed up there for five years battling extradition to Sweden on sexual assault charges, which Assange denies.

Suspected Rebels Storm Philippine Jail, 132 Inmates Escape – Daily Mail

Nearly 160 inmates escaped after suspected Muslim rebels attacked a jail in the southern Philippines before dawn Wednesday, and at least six people were shot dead as pursuing government forces traded fire with gunmen, officials said.

Acting Provincial Jail Warden Supt. Peter John Bongngat Jr. said a guard was killed and an inmate was wounded in an initial gunbattle when dozens of gunmen stormed the North Cotabato District Jail in Kidapawan in one of the country’s largest jailbreaks in recent years. Kidapawan city in Cotabato Province is about 930 kilometers (580 miles) southeast of the capital Manila.

Bongngat and Kidapawan police chief Supt. Leo Ajero said gunfire continued for hours after the attack as army troops and police, some in armored tanks, hunted through the surrounding forests for the 158 escaped inmates and the gunmen who freed them.

Bongat said the heavily armed attackers were suspected to include members of the outlawed Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters and guerrillas who broke away from the main Moro Islamic Liberation Front, which has signed a peace deal with the government.

Of the six killed in the shootout, at least five were escapees, while another six were recaptured, officials said.

The jail held more than 1,500 inmates, including Bangsamoro members facing murder charges for a series of bombings in the province, officials said. It was the third attack in the provincial jail facility since 2007.

France Claims ‘No Incident’ After 1,000 Cars Torched On New Year’s Eve – Breitbart

The phenomenon of torching cars at the end of the year is a “tradition” in France, with different departments and suburbs of the capital, Paris, competing to cause the most destruction.

Senate Republicans Introduce Obamacare Repeal Resolution – Washington Free Beacon

Sen. Mike Enzi (R., Wyo.), chairman of the Senate Budget Committee, introduced a budget resolution on Tuesday that would repeal the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare.

The resolution utilizes the reconciliation process to repeal elements of the health care law, since Republicans do not have a 60-seat majority that would allow them to overcome a Democratic filibuster. Reconciliation could be used to repeal parts of Obamacare with only 51 votes, similar to how Democrats used the reconciliation process to amend tax and spending provisions contained in Obamacare in 2010.

Republicans can use reconciliation to “fast-track” repeal and send legislation to President-elect Donald Trump’s desk as soon as possible.

Enzi’s resolution directs relevant House and Senate committees to achieve $1 billion in deficit reductions over the next decade.

The resolution would also reserve funds so Republicans can replace the Affordable Care Act with a patient-centered health care reform.

“Americans face skyrocketing premiums and soaring deductibles,” Enzi said. “Insurers are withdrawing from markets across the country, leaving many families with fewer choices and less access to care than they had before – the opposite of what the law promised.”

“Today, we take steps to repair the nation’s broken health care system, removing Washington from the equation and putting control back where it belongs: with patients, their families, and their doctors,” he said…

Moroccan Woman Caught Smuggling “Refugee” Into Spain In A Suitcase – Evening Standard

A young woman has been caught trying to smuggle an African refugee into Spain inside her suitcase.

The 22-year-old Moroccan woman was stopped by Spanish border control in Ceuta, a Spanish city in north Africa.

She could face up to seven years in prison for human trafficking if found guilty

Police said they grew suspicious when the woman looked unnecessarily nervous after passing through a third control point to enter the city, one of Europe’s two land borders with Africa.

On stopping the woman, border guards found a 19-year-old man from Gabon curled up inside her case.

He was conscious and unharmed but was taken to hospital for a routine check.

It is not the first time police have found migrants hiding in the luggage of travellers entering Spanish territory from north Africa.

In May 2015 police found an eight-year-old boy hiding in the suitcase of a different Moroccan woman.

His father, who was suspected of having paid the woman to smuggle his son into the country, was later arrested on the Spanish border.

Many migrants desperate to make it to Europe from north Africa are being increasingly inventive with the way in which they try and reach European territory, where they can claim asylum…

Kurdish Family In Iraq Names Their Newborn Trump – American Mirror

There’s at least one Middle East family that isn’t buying into Barack Obama’s fear mongering over what Donald Trump will do to America’s foreign relations.

A Kurdish family in Iraq named their baby after Trump. The boy’s name is Trump Hassan Jamil, to be exact.

“I called him Trump because Trump is charismatic and has clear policies,” the boy’s father tells CNN. “That’s why he won the election.”

A Kurdish business owner named his new restaurant after The Donald. Trump Fish recently opened in Dahouk, Iraq – the sign even includes the president-elect’s likeness.

“What I admire the most about Trump’s personality is that he’s decisive, he’s tough,” the restaurateur says. “And with that toughness, he’ll finish off ISIS.”…

Leftist Governor Of New York Proposes “Free Tuition” For Public Universities – Zero Hedge

There is little doubt that easy access to federally subsidized student loans has contributed to the astronomical increase in the cost of attending college in the United States. After all, what 18 year old would turn down $200,000 in free money to party for 4 years? As an added bonus, when you figure out upon graduation that your degree in anthropology if fairly worthless, you can always just move back in with mom and force taxpayers to pick up your debt burden. Anything less would be a substantial “triggering” event and we just can’t have that.

As we noted roughly a year ago, the amount of student debt outstanding is on track to reach nearly $17 trillion by 2030… which is clearly enough artificial demand to send the price of almost any commodity product soaring.

Well, apparently New York’s Governor doesn’t think that misinformed government policies are doing nearly enough to drive up college tuition costs. As a result, he has decided to jump on the Bernie Sanders bandwagon with a new proposal that would provide free tuition at public state and city colleges to any student whose parents earn less than $125,000.

As the New York Times notes, Cuomo’s plan could apply to as many as 1 million New York families though it was not “immediately clear how the program would be paid for”… which is just a minor detail anyway.

Mr. Cuomo hopes for a quick start for his idea, with a three-year rollout beginning in the fall, though it will require legislative approval, a potential snag when the governor and lawmakers on both sides of the aisle have been at odds over a pay raise and other issues…

Pit Bull Attacks Owner For Trying To Put A Sweater On Him – American Mirror

A Florida family learned the hard way that their dog “Scarface” doesn’t do sweaters.

Police responded to the Tampa home of Brenda Guerrero around 2:30 p.m. Friday after the 52 year old went outside to put a sweater on Scarface and the pit bull mix attacked her, the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Guerrero’s husband, 46-year-old Ismael Guerrero, attempted to pull the dog off his wife but was also attacked. The couple’s son, Antoine Harris, 22, stabbed Scarface in the head and neck to break up the melee and was also attacked.

“The son tried to save them as well,” Tampa Police Spokesman Eddy Durkin said. “Grabbed the knife and stabbed the dog trying to help them out.”

All three family members eventually retreated to their home and called police, who tried unsuccessfully to get the animal under control before calling in reinforcements, Durkin told WTFS.

“Officers responding said the dog was pretty aggressive,” Durkin said. “When they Tased the dog the dog was still pulling away and was able to release the prongs from the Taser.”

According to WTFS:

When Animal Control and Tampa Police arrived to the home, the dog was shot with a tranquilizer gun. After the dog got into the house, where there were two children in the back room, TPD officers deployed a bean bag gun and Taser to subdue the dog. Eventually, the dog was captured by Animal Control by using a “catch pole.”

Both Brenda and Ismael Guerrero were rushed to the hospital and treated for injuries. Brenda Guerrero sustained a serious injury to her arm that is not life threatening, Fox 59 reports…

Trump To Name Robert Lighthizer U.S. Trade Representative – Wall Street Journal

Donald Trump will name Robert Lighthizer, a former trade official under President Ronald Reagan, to head the U.S. Trade Representative office, the first in a final push of appointments anticipated this week as Mr. Trump fills the remaining senior government vacancies in the run-up to his inauguration, the transition team said Tuesday.

The president-elect is also still considering ways to try to bring into his administration two family members, daughter Ivanka Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner, who were close advisers to his campaign.

With a nominee for trade czar position, Mr. Trump has four major positions to fill: the secretaries of Agriculture and Veterans Affairs, the Director of National Intelligence and the head of the Council of Economic Advisers.

A top candidate for agriculture secretary is Sonny Perdue, a former Republican governor of Georgia, two people close to the transition said. Toby Cosgrove, chief executive of the Cleveland Clinic, had been in the running for the VA job but has withdrawn his name.

The appointments would mark the final steps in a transition process that took on a fast clip after a reorganization by Vice President-elect Mike Pence shortly after the November election.

Since then, Mr. Trump has assembled an eclectic group of prospective cabinet members and chief aides, some of whom disagree with each other on such issues as Russia and global warming, setting the stage for a potentially fragmented policy approach…

Putin Announces Syrian Ceasefire Deal, Ready To Start Peace Talks; Obama Snubbed Again – Zero Hedge

Yesterday we reported that, in what was the latest “PR fiasco” for the outgoing Obama administration, Turkey and Russia sat down, and appeared on the edge of hammering out a ceasefire plan for Syria between the two nations – something which the UN has been unable to achieve for years – in a deal which would not include the United States and be distinct from separate intermittent U.N.-brokered negotiations, which have so far failed to end the fighting in the proxy Syria war.

Then moments ago, Russian President Vladimir Putin confirmed an agreement has been reached on ceasefire in Syria and the start of peace talks.

Quoted by AP, Putin said that Russia and Turkey will guarantee the truce, which is set to begin at midnight. He says it will be followed by peace talks between Syrian President Bashar Assad’s government and the opposition, and that the Syrian parties would take part in talks to be held in Kazakhstan, without specifying a date.

Syria’s military confirmed that it had agreed to a nationwide cease-fire starting at midnight.

Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu says the truce will include 62,000 opposition fighters across Syria, and that the Russian military has established a hotline with its Turkish counterpart to monitor compliance.

Leaving an olive branch for the new US administration, if not for Obama, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov says that that President-elect Donald Trump’s administration will be welcome to join the Syrian peace process once he takes office…

Food Stamp Fraud At All-Time High As $70M Is Wasted In 2016 – Fox News

Food stamp fraud is at an all-time high, with cases this year including a state lawmaker and even a millionaire.

According to the USDA, $70 million of taxpayer money was wasted in 2016 due to food stamp fraud.

On “Fox & Friends” Tuesday, Abby Huntsman discussed the issue with New York City Councilman Joe Borelli and 2008 Clinton campaign adviser Jehmu Greene.

“The SNAP program has been ripe with problems almost since its inception,” said Borelli, who argued that the program’s costs are out of control.

Borelli mentioned a House Committee on Agriculture report that talks about a number of ways to determine new criteria for people to qualify for food stamps.

Greene noted that 45 percent of food stamp recipients are under the age of 18 and another nine percent are over the age of 60, meaning the program is responsible for keeping these young and elderly people out of poverty…

Debbie Reynolds Passes Away Just One Day After Daughter Carrie Fisher – The Guardian

Hollywood legend Debbie Reynolds has died aged 84, just one day after the death of her daughter, famed actor and author Carrie Fisher.

Her death was confirmed by her son, Todd Fisher.

“The last thing she said this morning was that she was very, very sad about losing Carrie and that she would like to be with her again,” Fisher said. “Fifteen minutes later she suffered a severe stroke.”

Reynolds died just hours after she was taken to Cedars Sinai medical center from her son’s house in Beverly Hills on Wednesday afternoon.

“The only thing we’re taking solace in is that what she wanted to do was take care of her daughter, which is what she did best,” he added.

On Friday, Carrie Fisher reportedly suffered a heart attack on a flight from London to Los Angeles. Reynolds posted on her Facebook page on Christmas Day that Fisher was in a stable condition.

Carrie Fisher died two days later.

On Tuesday, Reynolds addressed Fisher’s death on Facebook, writing: “Thank you to everyone who has embraced the gifts and talents of my beloved and amazing daughter. I am grateful for your thoughts and prayers that are now guiding her to her next stop. Love Carries Mother.”

After news of Reynolds’ own death broke on Wednesday, Fisher’s daughter, Billie Lourd, posted a picture on Facebook of herself with her late mother and grandmother at the 2015 Screen Actors Guild Awards…

University Of Kansas Students Being Offered Buttons Spelling Out Their Preferred Gender Pronouns – Daily Mail

University of Kansas students are being offered buttons through the school’s library system meant to make their preferred gender pronouns clear.

Various University of Kansas Libraries employees now sport the square-shaped pins, with extra ones also doled out to interested students, the Lawrence Journal-World reports.

Library leaders say the buttons are part of the library system’s ‘You Belong Here’ marketing effort meant to lure undergraduates and ensure that they feel welcome, including transgender students.

The buttons come in three versions: ‘He him his,’ ”She her hers’ and, for people who don’t identify themselves as male or female, ‘They them theirs.’

‘Because gender is, itself, fluid and up to the individual,’ a sign at the libraries reads. ‘Each person has the right to identify their own pronouns, and we encourage you to ask before assuming someone’s gender.

Pronouns matter! Misgendering someone can have lasting consequences, and using the incorrect pronoun can be hurtful, disrespectful, and invalidate someone’s identity.’

Expressing gender identity through buttons or other means has cropped up elsewhere in the interest of inclusion.

Buttons were given out at the start of this semester at Vermont’s Champlain College, home to a new Women and Gender Center. Students and teachers at the University of Vermont also have worn name tags and made business cards with their preferred pronouns…

Congress Moving To Cut Funding To UN In Wake Of Anti-Israel Vote – Washington Free Beacon

Congress is already setting the stage to cut off U.S. funding to the United Nations in the wake of a contested vote last week in which the Obama administration permitted an anti-Israel resolution to win overwhelming approval, according to congressional leaders, who told the Washington Free Beacon that the current administration is already plotting to take further action against the Jewish state before vacating office.

Other punitive actions by Congress could include expelling Palestinian diplomats from U.S. soil and scaling back ties with foreign nations that voted in favor of the controversial measure, according to multiple sources who spoke to the Free Beacon about the situation both on and off the record.

List: 17 Reported Post-Election Pro-Trump ‘Hate’ Crimes Debunked – American Mirror

The mainstream media breathlessly reported on the leftist Southern Poverty Law Center’s tracking of alleged “hate” crimes against minorities by Donald Trump supporters after the election.

The activist organization reported in Mid-December:

This is the fourth update in the Southern Poverty Law Center’s effort to collect reports of bias-related harassment and intimidation around the country following the election. This update spans the period from November 9 to December 12.

The SPLC collected reports from news articles, social media, and direct submissions via our #ReportHate intake page. The SPLC made every effort to verify each report, but many included in the count remain anecdotal…

While the total number has surpassed the 1,000 mark, reports have slowed down significantly compared to the days immediately following the election. The reports are nonetheless as heartbreaking and infuriating as before.

The Center claims 1,094 so-called “bias-related harassment and intimidation” incidents have taken place since Trump’s election.

But a funny thing happened on the way to the left-wing echo chamber (ie. CNN studios): one-by-one, many of the reported incidents were proved to be hoaxes.

100% Of U.S. Warming Is Due To NOAA Data Tampering – DCSB

Climate Central just ran a piece titled The U.S. Has Been Overwhelmingly Hot This Year, which the Washington Post has picked up on. They claimed the U.S. was “overwhelmingly hot” in 2016, and temperatures have risen 1,5°F since the 19th century.

The first problem with their analysis is that the U.S. had very little hot weather in 2016. The percentage of hot days was below average, and ranked 80th since 1895. Only 4.4% of days were over 95°F, compared with the long term average of 4.9%. Climate Central is conflating mild temperatures with hot ones.

They also claim US temperatures rose 1.5°F since the 19th century, which is what NOAA shows.

The problem with the NOAA graph is that it is fake data. NOAA creates the warming trend by altering the data. The NOAA raw data shows no warming over the past century

The adjustments being made are almost exactly 1.5°F, which is the claimed warming in the article.

The adjustments correlate almost perfectly with atmospheric CO2. NOAA is adjusting the data to match global warming theory. This is known as PBEM (Policy Based Evidence Making.)

The hockey stick of adjustments since 1970 is due almost entirely to NOAA fabricating missing station data. In 2016, more than 42% of their monthly station data was missing, so they simply made it up. This is easy to identify because they mark fabricated temperatures with an “E” in their database…

Court Rules State Department Can Be Required To Ask Attorney General To Recover Clinton Emails – Judicial Watch

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton made the following statement regarding today’s ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit in a case that would require Secretary of State John Kerry to seek the help of the attorney general in recovering additional Hillary Clinton emails:

The courts seem to be fed up with the Obama administration’s refusal to enforce the rule of law on the Clinton emails. Today’s appeals court ruling rejects the Obama State Department’s excuses justifying its failure to ask the attorney general, as the law requires, to pursue the recovery of the Clinton emails. This ruling means that the Trump Justice Department will have to decide if it wants to finally enforce the rule of law and try to retrieve all the emails Clinton and her aides unlawfully took with them when they left the State Department.

The appellate ruling reverses a decision in which the District Court declared “moot” a Judicial Watch’s lawsuit challenging the failure of Secretary of State John Kerry to comply with the Federal Records Act (FRA) in seeking to recover the emails of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and other high level State Department officials who used non-“state.gov” email accounts to conduct official business (Judicial Watch, Inc. v. John F. Kerry (No. 16-5015)). According to the FRA, if an agency head becomes aware of “any actual, impending, or threatened unlawful removal… or destruction of [agency] records,” he or she “shall notify the Archivist… and with the assistance of the Archivist shall initiate action through the Attorney General for the recovery of [those] records.”…

Israel Green-Lights Settlements Following Obama’s UN Back-Stab – Daily Caller

Israeli authorities gave the go-ahead for the construction of hundreds of new settlement sites in East Jerusalem Monday after a United Nations resolution condemned Israel over the issue.

The defiant move comes after the U.S. government did not veto the UN condemnation of Israeli settlements, a marked change in U.S. policy. The Obama administration affirmed the decision to abstain in the vote on the resolution, despite being able to defeat it with its veto power, saying that Israeli settlements “puts at risk the two-state solution, as does any continued incitement to violence.”

“Israel is a country with national pride, and we do not turn the other cheek,” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in the wake of the resolution. “This is a responsible, measured and vigorous response, the natural response of a healthy people that is making it clear to the nations of the world that what was done at the U.N. is unacceptable to us.”

President-elect Donald Trump more closely aligns with Netanyahu’s position, and lashed out at the UN in the wake of the vote.

Beyond approving more settlements, the Israeli government has cut diplomatic contact at the UN with countries that voted in favor of the resolution, and summoned the U.S. ambassador to Israel to admonish him.

Palestinian leaders immediately hailed the vote as a victory.

“Now we can talk about the boycott of all settlements, the companies that work with them, et cetera, and actually take legal action against them if they continue to work with them,” the foreign minister of the Palestinian Authority told Palestinian media…

Dumbasses Decide To Rob Georgia Gun Store With Predictable Outcome – WMAZ

The owner of a gun shop who shot back against two armed suspects is speaking out after the incident, saying he had no choice but to fire at the men, killing one.

Bullet holes are still visible on the front on the Dixie Gun and Pawn shop Monday night after what detectives describe as a gun battle broke out earlier in the day.

Police said two armed men burst in Jimmy Groover’s store in broad daylight Monday and held the gun store owner at gunpoint.

“Get down on the floor, get down on the floor or I’ll kill you,” Groover recalled the suspects telling him. “Then they shot at me.”

What the men weren’t aware of is that Groover had a gun of his own. Feeling like his life was on the line, he pulled the trigger, shooting and killing one of the suspects. The other is still on the run.

Groover returned to his Cobb County business after the ordeal and showed detectives and family members how he pulled the gun off his hip to defend his life.

“I had no other choice. I had no other choice. I hate that it happened,” he told 11Alive. “I’ve been doing this 30 years. Nothing like this has ever happened. I never wanted this to happen but I want to go home at night, too.”

French Students Strip Naked For End-Of-Year School Photo With Teachers – Daily Mail

Schools across the world gather their pupils together every year for the traditional class photo.

But one school in France decided to make a statement with their class picture by stripping down to their underwear and even getting their teacher to join in.

The pupils from science and technology class STD2A at the Lycee Federic Mistral high school in Avignon said they wanted to do something original for their end of term snap.

So the youngsters, aged 17 and 18, decided to take off their clothes and create a cheeky picture.

And as well as the pupils being involved in the stunt, their teacher also shed his clothes and also joined in.

However, to spare their blushes, those in the picture held strategically placed black cards to protect their modesty.

The picture was then shared online and according to the local.fr, it was entitled ’50 Shades of SDT2A’.

And soon after the class picture went viral with it being shared online thousands of times and even making its way on to several French news sites.

Many praised the picture and said it truly showed ‘freedom of expression.’

However, many expressed shock, given the age of the pupils and one person wrote: ‘Teacher and students in underwear.

Muslim Groups Denied Government Hand-Outs In Sweden Because “Their Activities Are Not Compatible With Democracy” – USA Politics Today

The whole world is in a huge turmoil with radical Islam. Moderate muslims are trying to save their legacy and their brand in the world as peaceful religion.

Several Muslim organizations in Sweden recently wrapped up their annual spending as they prepared to receive another taxpayer-funded payment of $300,000 from the government. However, as soon as they handed in their application, they were given some devastating news from the state that they never saw coming.

Mad World News reported that Young Muslims of Sweden and Sweden Democratic Youth (SDU) have been milking taxpayers for over $25 million annually for years now.

Earlier this year, they were approved for nearly $300,000 by the Swedish Agency for Youth and Civil Society (MUCF). Unfortunately for them, when they came to collect their money for 2017, they were told that they had been DENIED all funding because “their activities are not compatible with democracy.”

WOW, BOOM! Haha, this is great! Sweden is turning a new page with Islam.

After the government found that the groups were not actually promoting anti-extremism, anti-racism, or Western values and laws, they immediately cut off all of their state funding. Specifically, they confirmed that the Young Muslims of Sweden promotes both discrimination and racism towards non-Muslims and has connections to the Muslim Brotherhood.

“We make the assessment that the SDU has statements in its political manifestos and Young Muslims of Sweden has elements in its operations which mean that these organizations do not live up to the standard we want an organization to have to get government funding,” said Lotta Persson, of the Swedish Agency for Youth and Civil Society (MUCF) which hands out the grants…

“He talked about the real problems at the Department of Veterans Affairs, how it’s in need of fundamental reform, and he talked to what all of these veterans are experiencing when they do go to the Department of Veterans Affairs – which is basically a Byzantine bureaucracy that seems to be more interested in perpetuating their own jobs than taking care of veterans,” he said.

“And then he also talked about national security issues in real, clear, and unequivocal manner, talking about the threat of terrorism and the need to build up our armed forces,” Carey continued. “Many of these veterans have recently come off active duty, where they go on five, six, seven, eight deployments overseas to Iraq and Afghanistan. In large part, it’s because they have this really compressed deployment schedule because there’s just not enough forces. And he talked about that. He talked about how we need to increase the size of our armed forces, just to meet our current commitments. That was first and foremost.”…

Merry Christmas! Obama Scraps Entry-Exit Tracking System For Migrants From Muslim Countries – Breitbart
.

.
The Obama administration is officially ending a post-9/11 era registration system for immigrant men from mostly Muslim countries.

The decision to scrap the National Security Entry-Exit Registration System comes amid growing international terror fears and President-elect Donald Trump’s suggestions that he could ban Muslim immigrants from the United States.

Trump said Wednesday, “You know my plans.”

The NSEERS program was widely derided by civil libertarians as an effort to profile people based on race and religion.

The administration hasn’t been using the program since 2011…

Administrative Costs More Than Doubled After Implementation Of Obamacare – Washington Free Beacon

Administrative costs more than doubled after the implementation of Obamacare, according to a report from the American Action Forum.

In 2013, before the Affordable Care Act was implemented, insurers’ administrative costs totaled $414 per person. The year after Obamacare was implemented, administrative costs more than doubled to $893 per person.

“During the debate leading up to the passage of the Affordable Care Act, many advocates of that legislation argued that one of the benefits of establishing a government-run health insurance exchange in each state would be a reduction in administrative costs associated with private health insurance,” the report states.

By reducing administrative costs, advocates also projected that premiums and national spending on health care would decline.

However, the administration announced in October that premiums on the exchanges would increase by double digits and recent data found that administrative costs have increased as well.

The exchanges did reduce insurers’ administrative costs from $414 per person in 2013 to $265 per person in 2014, but the federal government ended up spending $628 per person to make up that cost. In the end, administrative costs totaled $893 per person with the assistance of government-run health exchanges.

“While insurers indeed appear to have spent less on administrative costs, both on a per-covered-person basis and as a percentage of total premiums since the law went into effect, government spending necessary to set up and operate the exchanges vastly exceeded the amount saved by private-sector insurers, leading to an increase in total administrative costs,” the report states…

Raving Moonbat Kicked Off Of Jetblue Flight For Accosting Ivanka Trump And Her Kids – Zero Hedge

According to reports from TMZ, an unruly Jet Blue passenger has been kicked off a plane this morning after “accosting” Ivanka Trump and “verbally berating her and ‘jeering’ at her 3 kids.”

Ivanka, Jared and their 3 children were departing from JFK when the out-of-control passenger apparently took issue with the fact they decided to fly commercial, and coach class at that.

“Your father is ruining the country. Why is she on our flight. She should be flying private.”

What are the chances that we’ll hear outrage from the left about this angry LGBT man verbally assaulting a woman and her children?

Leftist Snopes Co-Founder Accused Of Embezzling Company Money, Buying Hookers – Daily Caller

The founder of mythbusting website Snopes, which was recently tapped by Facebook as one of four “fact-check” organizations patrolling the site for “fake news,” embezzled $98,000 in company funds before spending it on “himself and the prostitutes he hired,” according to legal documents filed by his ex-wife reviewed by the Daily Mail.

After divorcing from his first wife, Barbara Mikkelson, David Mikkelson married Elyssa Young, a former porn star and current escort who now works for Snopes as an administrator, according to the Daily Mail.

The Daily Mail also revealed that top Snopes “fact-checker” Kim LaCapria claimed on her personal blog that she has “posted to Snopes” after smoking marijuana. As TheDC previously revealed, LaCapria describes herself as “openly left-leaning” and once claimed that Republicans fear “female agency.”

As originally reported by TheDC, Snopes almost exclusively employs leftists as fact-checkers, many of whom have exhibited a clear distaste for Republican voters. TheDC could not identify a single Snopes fact-checker who comes from a conservative background.

The mythbusting site has butchered the truth on more than one occasion.

In July, TheDC exposed a Snopes lie about the lack of American flags at the Democratic convention, trying to pass off a picture from day two of the convention as though it were from day one in a flailing attempt to debunk a factual Daily Caller story…

Documents Show Michelle Obama Used Taxpayer Dollars To Pay Friends And Family To Vacation With Her – US Herald

Michelle Obama is finally leaving the White House, and not a day too soon. She thought she would get off without anyone know how much she ripped out of taxpayers hands. Recently discovered classified documents show exactly how Michelle Obama has been giving taxpayer dollars to her mother and daughters.

Michelle Obama has garnered a reputation for her many trips overseas, costing American taxpayers millions of dollars. However, it seems that there was something else going on on these trips that she never wanted the public to find out.

Recently uncovered classified documents show that on these overseas trips Michelle Obama put in for her reimbursements to be paid out to her staffers that accompanied her for the past 8 years.

At first this almost sounds like a nice gesture, but if you look at who the staffers listed to be paid out were, you’ll notice that among them are her own daughters and her own mother. Michelle listed her mother and daughters as “senior staff” on her many vacations.

So they not only got to some of the most exclusive vacation destinations in the world, they got paid to do so.

“According to an Air Force flight passenger manifest for the multi-million dollar trip, which included multiple days of sightseeing and a family safari, Michelle listed her daughters as ‘Senior Staff.’ White House officials told True Pundit that as senior staff on an official diplomatic trip, Sasha and Malia could have also been paid a daily stipend in addition to the free flight, lodging, meals, sight seeing and safari.” [Via True Pundit]…

Muslim Assclown Storms Kids’ Christmas Play Yelling ‘Allahu Akbar’ – WorldNetDaily

Children were left “petrified” when, during a depiction of the traditional Christian Christmas story, a Somali asylum seeker suddenly jumped on stage and started preaching from the Quran, according to a report in the Express.

The report said the unnamed Somali, 24, was wearing a white robe when he jumped up, shouted “Allahu akbar,” and began his rant.

Eventually he was overpowered by several men attending the children’s presentation.

“The children are totally anxious and petrified, we were terribly afraid for our children,” a witness told the newspaper.

It happened in the Austrian town of Oberndorf, which is in the state of Upper Austria near Schwanenstadt.”

It caused a wave of horror among the children and their parents.

He had just appeared at the venue and had been standing next to the stage where the nursery school-age children were on stage, the Express said.

“Witnesses were afraid that some weapons might be hidden in his rucksack though it later proved to contain nothing but clothes,” the Express said, when one witness shared the fear of many.

“You never know what his intentions are,” the witness said.

The Somali was identified by police as a man who had been living in the area for several years, and reportedly was being treated for “manic depression.”

A German-language report in regional media said the man resisted being removed, shouting “Allah.”…

‘Death By China’ Author To Head Trump Trade Office – Financial Times

Donald Trump plans to create a National Trade Council inside the White House to oversee industrial policy and is appointing a China hawk and one of the architects of the populist economic message to run the new group.

Mr Trump has chosen Peter Navarro, a Harvard-trained economist, to head the NTC, the Financial Times has learnt. The author of books such as Death by China and Crouching Tiger: What China’s Militarism Means for the World has for years warned that the US is engaged in an economic war with China and should adopt a more aggressive stance – a message that the president-elect sold to voters across the US during his campaign.

“I read one of Peter’s books on America’s trade problems years ago and was impressed by the clarity of his arguments and thoroughness of his research,” Mr Trump said. “He has presciently documented the harms inflicted by globalism on American workers, and laid out a path forward to restore our middle class.”

The Trump transition team described Mr Navarro as a “visionary economist” who would “develop trade policies that shrink our trade deficit, expand our growth, and help stop the exodus of jobs from our shores”. His appointment is the second restructuring of trade policy that will see Mr Trump attempt to follow through on his focus to resurrect manufacturing, and create more industrial jobs, in the American economy.

The FT reported earlier this month that Mr Trump had tapped Wilbur Ross, a billionaire investor who has been nominated as secretary of commerce, to oversee his trade policy, creating a new inter-agency process that would cut the influence of the US Trade Representative, the office which has for years negotiated trade deals…

Fake Navy Seal Slapped With 3 Years In Prison After Scamming Charity – Washington Standard

A Navy SEAL faker was sentenced Monday to three years in prison for scamming money out of a charity after he promised he could save kidnapped aid workers.

Not only will 36-year-old William Burley have to languish in prison for three years after pleading guilty to wire fraud in August, but the judge also ordered him to pay restitution to International Aid Services America of $32,454. IAS is a non-profit group that provides clean water and sanitation, the Chicago Tribune reports.

“We’re just glad to see the justice process work appropriately and glad for that outcome,” IAS President Jonathan Wildt said.

According to a Department of Justice release, after three IAS workers were kidnapped in Somalia while engaged in humanitarian work, Burley approached the non-profit organization and said that he had the skills and experience to negotiate and recover the employees. To bolster his credentials, Burley told IAS a series of tall tales, namely that he was a highly decorated Navy SEAL and a consultant for the Navy and the Pentagon.

IAS paid Burley $30,000, so that he could travel to Kenya to begin the hostage negotiations.

He utterly failed to persuade the captors, and so he returned to the U.S. in 2012 and developed a plan to rescue the aid workers.

At this point, the non-profit was suspicious of Burley, so executives contacted Don Shipley, who is well-known for exposing stolen valor. Shipley posted the encounter on YouTube in 2012 and asked Burley to name members of his graduating class from the Navy SEALs. Burley couldn’t name a single one….

Middle Schooler Faces Criminal Charges For Cutting A Peach With A Butter Knife – College Fix

Trying to teach your children some manners at the table? Don’t send them to school with a set of utensils “made for children to learn how to eat properly.”

An 11-year-old Florida girl who brought a butter knife to school at the behest of her parents is facing potential criminal charges from the local state’s attorney, showing the “folly of overcriminalization,” according to David Rosenthal, a visiting legal fellow at the Heritage Foundation.

Writing in The Daily Signal, Rosenthal blasts school officials and prosecutors for using the criminal justice system to handle “every minor mishap” as a threat to school safety:

The zero tolerance policy prohibits possession of a Class B weapon on school premises. This includes such items as razor blades, nunchakus, shotgun shells, and knives – including “blunt-bladed table knives.” Possession of these weapons is considered a criminal incident and can trigger a host of consequences, including not only a minimum six-day suspension from school, but also a mandatory report to law enforcement…

Surely, there must be someone along the chain of command with the requisite discretion to understand that an 11-year-old cutting a peach with a child’s butter knife is not the type of evil that a school weapons ban is intended to protect against.

Rosenthal notes it’s not just school officials in wacky Florida who see a kid eating a peach as another potential Columbine: A high schooler in Ohio got suspended for five days for a class presentation on “how to make a healthy breakfast,” and another in California was nearly expelled because his parked car had pocket knives left over from a fishing trip…

Obama Heads To Golf Course After Receiving Reports On Berlin Attack And Russian Ambassador Death – Mediaite

Well, this is what one would call bad political optics.

With the dual breaking news events surrounding potential terrorism and a foreign diplomat being shot to death, White House pool reports showed that President Barack Obama headed to a country club in Hawaii near his rental house, where he is vacationing.

The first email shows that Obama has directed his staff to keep him updated on the situation in Turkey regarding the assassination of the Russian Ambassador.

From the White House, per Principal Deputy Press Secretary Eric Schultz:

“This morning the President was briefed by his National Security Team on the assassination of the Russian Ambassador to Turkey in Ankara today. The President directed his team to provide updates as warranted.”

Meanwhile, at 10:10 a.m. in Kailua, the press van prepares to depart the rental house where we’ve been holding.

In a following email, we are informed that Obama is leaving the rental home to go play golf.

The President and his motorcade departed the Kailua neighborhood where the First Family rents a vacation home at 10:21 a.m. Spectators on the street threw shakas and recorded photos or video on cell phones as the motorcade made the 10-minute drive to Mid-Pacific Country Club, where the President will be golfing under cloudy skies.

The times listed are local Hawaii time. Obama’s motorcade left his vacation home at 3:21 PM ET.

Currently, the news is dominated by both the assassination in Turkey, which could have large-scale implications on foreign policy and relations, and multiple deaths in Berlin via a truck driving through a market in an incident reminiscent of the Nice terror attack…

Thanks To Common Core, U.S. Now Ranks 31st Out Of 35 Developed Nations In Math – Real Strategy

No matter how much money we use to grease the wheels of the U.S. system of education, (at least $8.3 billion for Common Core to date) we’ve failed our children. A new U.S. Department of Education study reveals that U.S. children rank 31st out of 35 developed nations in math. They didn’t fare much better in science, or reading literacy either.

Common core is to to blame, but it is part of a wider network of disenfranchisement in order to keep your children stupid and shallow. Instead of yearning for knowledge, their interests are kept trivial. They can text three words, but not read an entire book, or do simple math.

If you assume that most people in our modern society have about 16 waking hours to use every day, with approximately 8 (or more) of them already spent on work or schooling, several hours commuting, making dinner, getting necessary household chores done, showering, getting ready for the next day etc., you are left with a precious few moments to learn the truth.

The powers which are now being exposed don’t want questioning, awake children. They want ignorant, mindless robots that are easily controlled. They want consumers who don’t question the 8 hours (plus) we already spend working hard so that almost half of our incomes can be taxed, and the other half swindled from us with fractional reserve banking, usury through inflated interest rates, quantitative easing, etc.

They don’t want us to question a lifestyle which allows us no time to spend with our families, spiritual pursuits, and real-life skills or artistry that can greatly enhance our quality of life…

New Report Cites Increase Of Needles And Feces On Sidewalks Of Leftist Haven San Francisco – UFP

Liberal cities boast of being pedestrian friendly, inclusive, and tolerant of various lifestyles. Leniency on drug enforcement, and an overall lowered expectation of civility also denotes the most liberal metropolis. So when the city of San Francisco, California, concluded their yearly report by the city controller, it should come as no surprise that more ‘FNC’ litter was found. What’s ‘FNC’ you may be asking? Well in liberal cities there is an acronym for litter that is made up of feces, needles, and condoms.

In the SF Controller’s report on street and sidewalk maintenance there is concern for the increase of human byproduct and drug refuse. The image below reflects the summary of their findings.

We shouldn’t be surprised that a city like San Francisco is treated like a giant toilet by some of it’s dwellers. A liberal city in such a liberal state attracts many types of people, especially those looking to escape the personal responsibilities of less “progressive” towns. When needles, and feces start to litter the sidewalk most cities would try to find a solution that addresses the behavior. Not San Francisco though, nope, they just use it as justification to raise taxes and spend more to clean it up.

The report had this to say about human waste:

Data from SF311 shows that service requests related to human waste increased across all Supervisorial Districts in San Francisco in FY 2015-16, and at a rate well above the average growth in overall SF311 use…

Douchebag Bartender Fired After Refusing To Serve Trump Fans – Mad World News

A liberal bartender in Washington, D.C. refused to serve some patrons who were wearing shirts in support of Donald Trump, and it was all caught on video. After telling the Trump fans they couldn’t come inside, the jerky drink-slinger was recorded calling them “racist bigots.” The footage has caused a big stir, which led to quite a few ticked off patriots deciding to help the dissed “Deplorables” get sweet revenge.

The video of the incident was spotted and then posted to Twitter on Saturday by Joe Biggs from Infowars. Since then, it’s been retweeted over 3,400 times. At least one of the customers was wearing a Trump t-shirt that the bartender at Maddy’s Tap Room apparently found offensive. According to a man in the video, after probably seeing them through one of the many windows of the building, the bartender actually went outside the bar to tell the guys that they couldn’t come in.

Obviously, the bartender’s preemptive rudeness blew up in his face because the guys came in, with cell phones out, to confront him. The first question the filming customer asked was, “Why can’t we be here?” to which the bartender replied, “Nah, I just don’t like Trump.”

The situation escalated quickly at that point, with the Trump fans going on the offensive and questioning whether the bartender was actually racist himself because one of the guys had “brown skin.” It wasn’t long before the instigator decided to play the victim and claim he was only joking until the guys started “getting bent ass*holes” – whatever that means…

Clinton Lies About Lying About Her Lies – Reason

According to a Fox News poll conducted last week, 67 percent of likely voters do not think Hillary Clinton is “honest and trustworthy.” That is five percentage points more than said the same thing about Donald Trump – an amazing accomplishment, since the blowhard billionaire can barely open his mouth without lying.

Clinton’s credibility with voters may be even weaker than that poll suggests, since it was completed before FBI Director James Comey disclosed that agents had stumbled across another trove of emails that crossed the unsecured private server she improperly used as secretary of state. Whether or not the FBI finds any previously unidentified messages containing classified material, the discovery reminded everyone of Clinton’s tendency to pile lie upon lie instead of coming clean about her mistakes.

“I’m not making excuses,” Clinton said at a rally in Ohio on Monday. “I’ve said it was a mistake and I regret it.”

Clinton did not manage to describe what Comey later called her “extremely careless” handling of “very sensitive, highly classified information” as a mistake until six months after The New York Times revealed her reliance on a personal email system during her tenure at the State Department. Until that interview, she did nothing but make excuses, and even afterward she continued to offer false assurances aimed at minimizing her misbehavior.

Clinton claimed that “what I did was allowed,” that she “fully complied with every rule,” that “there is no classified material” in the emails she sent and received, and that she “went above and beyond what I was requested to do.”…

Anthony Weiner, the husband of Hillary Clinton’s closest aide Huma Abedin, has checked into a rehab facility for treatment of sex addition.

Out-of-control Weiner, who has been sending sexually-charged messages and obscene pictures to women and at least one teenage girl for years, is now in a treatment facility, DailyMail.com has learned exclusively.

Friday’s dramatic disclosure by the FBI that it had discovered new emails relevant to their investigation into Hillary Clinton’s secret server was a shock unprecedented in electoral history.

At the center of it, however, is the tragedy of Anthony Weiner’s sex addiction.

The rehab center where Weiner is being treated separates men and women and its program includes counseling for those addicted to cybersex and exhibitionism as well as addictions to anonymous sex and porn, DailyMail.com can reveal…

Top Democrat Fundraiser Caught On Tape Saying Black People Are ‘Seriously Fucked In The Head’ – Project Veritas Action

In a new video released by Project Veritas Action, a top Democratic donor is caught on camera disparaging members of the African American community at a fundraiser for North Carolina U.S. Senate candidate Deborah Ross.

In the video, prominent Ross donor Benjamin Barber expresses his opinion about blacks who vote Republican by comparing them to Nazis.

“Have you heard of the Sonderkommandos? Jewish guards who helped murder Jews in the camps. So there were even Jews that were helping the Nazis murder Jews! So blacks who are helping the other side are seriously fucked in the head. They’re only helping the enemy who will destroy them. Maybe they think ‘if I help them we’ll get along okay; somehow I’ll save my race by working with the murderers,’” said Barber at a fundraiser for Ross on the Upper West Side of New York City on September 19, 2016.

Project Veritas Action thought it was important to share Barber’s words with African American Republicans in North Carolina. They expressed outrage over the comments that were made at the Ross fundraiser.

“I think that Deborah Ross has shown her true colors. If this is not a, if that…what you just showed me is not racism and condescending and basically calling blacks stupid and ignorant and saying that we are voting against our own self-interest if we support any republican. I am appalled. I am in incensed. Deborah Ross should be called to task for something like that,” said Bishop Wooden, a black voter in North Carolina…

Hillary Lies Through Her Teeth, Claims She Was In New York City On 9/11 – Breitbart
.

Campaigning in Florida on Tuesday, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton claimed that she was in New York City on 9/11, when terrorists flew planes into the World Trade Center. She made her claim while discussing terrorism and the threat posed by ISIS.

“I know what happened not far from here at Pulse night club in Orlando,” she said. “I was in New York City on 9/11 as one of the two senators. I will defeat ISIS. I will protect America.”

But Clinton wasn’t in New York on 9/11, according to Politico.

As a United States Senator she was in Washington D.C. at her home in Whitehaven when the first plane hit the World Trade Center. She spent most of the day reacting to the attacks in media interviews and joined her colleagues singing “God Bless America” on the Capitol Hill steps…

Two Police Officers Killed In ‘Ambush-Style Attacks’ In Iowa – Daily Caller

Two officers were shot and killed Wednesday morning in Des Moines, Iowa, in what police describe as “ambush-style attacks.”

Police in the suburb of Urbandale found a dead officer in his patrol car when they responded to to gunfire at an intersection around 1 a.m.

Another wounded officer was discovered 20 minutes later a few miles away after he was called to the first crime scene. He was later pronounced dead at the Iowa Methodist Medical Center.

“We’re just a few hours into this,” Sgt. Paul Parizek, a spokesman for the Des Moines Police Department, said at a news conference. “It doesn’t look like there was any interaction between these officers and whoever the coward is who shot them while they sat in their cars.”

Parizek said police are “developing suspect information” but couldn’t share any further information.

“We’re developing some suspect information right now,” Parizek said. “There’s nothing that we can share. As soon as we’ve got something that we can put out, it’s coming out.”

Parizek cautioned police officers in the area about the “clear and present danger” they face at the moment.

“These guys were gunned down, sitting in their car doing nothing wrong,” he said. “There is a clear and present danger to police officers right now. There’s definitely danger out there right now.”…

October Gun Sales See Massive Spike, Set Yet Another Record – Washington Free Beacon

The FBI’s background check system for gun sales processed more than 2.3 million checks in October, setting an all-time record for the month.

There were 2,333,539 gun-related checks processed through the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, known as NICS, last month, according to FBI documents posted on Monday. That represents an increase of more than 350,000 checks over the previous October, itself a record. It’s also the 18th month in a row to set a record.

With two months to go, 2016 has already seen 22,206,233 NICS checks, making it the second highest year for checks in the history of NICS with only 2015 seeing more.

Tax Form Reveals Hillary’s Campaign Chairman Continued Ties To Russian Energy Company After Claiming He Divested – Breitbart

New WikiLeaks emails show Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta apparently maintained his connection to Russian government-backed Joule Unlimited long after he claimed to have severed ties and divested from the energy company.

As Breitbart news previously reported, Podesta obtained “75,000 common shares” from his membership on Joule’s executive board. He transferred those shares to his daughter, Megan Rouse, and designated her Dublin, California residence as the address for Leonidio Holdings LLC, the Delaware-based holding company that Podesta used to transfer his Joule shares.

But a June 1, 2015 email from Podesta-connected investment firm Equilibrium Capital Group to Rouse reveals financial transactions occurring mere months after Podesta left the Obama administration and long after he “cut his ties with Joule,” according to the Wall Street Journal.

“Hi Megan, Please find attached Leonidio Holdings, LLC’s 2014 K1 for ECG. Let me know if you have any questions or require any additional information. The one for John Podesta is just a final one to show the transfer,” the June 1, 2015 email read.

Rouse is listed as “managing member” of Leonidio Holdings LLC, according to financial documents.

The K1 tax income form attached to the email shows Podesta as being responsible for $139.328 in “withdrawls and distributions.” It also lists a partner sharing income between Rouse, Leonidio Holdings, and several other beneficiaries and Podesta family members…

Syrian “Refugees” Admitted Into The U.S. Surge 675% So Far In 2016 – Zero Hedge

Through October, the Obama administration has officially resettled 13,210 Syrian refugees into the United States since the beginning of 2016, an increase of 675% compared to the same 10-month period in 2015. Of course, just last month Secretary of State Kerry revealed plans by the Obama administration to increase the number of refugees admitted into the U.S. even further to 110,000 in 2017, representing a 30% increase over the 2016 target and a 57% increase from 2015. According to CNS News, 99.1% of incoming Syrian refugees so far in 2016 are Muslim while only 0.5% are Christian despite John Kerry declaring back in March that ISIS was actively committing genocide against Christians in the war-torn country.

Of those, 13,100 (99.1 percent) are Muslims – 12,966 Sunnis, 24 Shi’a, and 110 other Muslims – and 77 (0.5 percent) are Christians. Another 24 (0.18 percent) are Yazidis.

During the Jan.-Oct. period in 2015, 1,705 Syrian refugees were admitted, of whom 1,664 (97.5 percent) were Muslims and 29 (1.7 percent) were Christians.

Meanwhile the surge of Syrian refugee admissions initiated by the administration last February has continued into the new fiscal year, now one month-old: A total of 1,297 were resettled during October – a 593 percent increase over the 187 admitted in October 2015.

October’s arrivals were once again dominated by Sunni Muslims, accounting for 1,263 (97.3 percent) of the total. Another seven were Shi’a Muslims and 12 were other Muslims. The rest of the October intake comprised 15 (1.1 percent) Christians – eight Orthodox, four Catholics and three refugees self-described simply as Christians…

WikiLeaks: Here’s How The Clinton’s Free Private Jet Scam Works – Daily Caller

Ira Magaziner, the CEO of the Clinton Health Access Initiative, asked former President Bill Clinton to thank Morocco’s King Mohammed VI for “offering his plane to the conference in Ethiopia.”

“CHAI would like to request that President Clinton call Sheik Mohammed to thank him for offering his plane to the conference in Ethiopia,” Magaziner gushed in a November 22, 2011 email released by WikiLeaks.

Clinton frequently has expected free, luxurious private jet travel during his post-presidential life. Clinton, his wife and daughter have artfully secured free air travel and luxurious accommodations since they left the White House. It’s an effective way to accept gifts of great value without declaring them for the Clinton Foundation.

“It’s highly illegal and it’s likely that the owners of these aircraft took tax deductions as a gift to the Clinton Foundation,” Charles Ortel, a Wall Street analyst and critic of the Clinton Foundation, told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

In the Moroccan case, Clinton was able to fly for free, jetting 3,367 miles from Rabat, Morocco, to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on the King’s specially equipped 747-400 jumbo jet.

Not including the flight, King Mohammed has donated at least $28 million to the Clinton Foundation.

Top 7 Charges Hillary Clinton Could Face While President – Breitbart

What scandals might the American people find themselves dealing with in Hillary Clinton’s Administration if she slides into the presidential home plate, trailing a cloud of controversy?

Let us be honest about who suffers from presidential misbehavior – it’s the American people who pay the price, including the literal price of the expensive investigations. The odds of justice actually catching up with Hillary Clinton dwindle to almost zero if she gains the White House. She might have to sacrifice an aide here and there, but if the political system of 1998 couldn’t remove her husband from office for blatant perjury, it’s hard to imagine what could possibly bring The First Woman President down in the even more corrupt and confused political system of 2017.

Clinton News Network Busted Trying To Frame Trump – Conservative Trubune

CNN (also known as the “Clinton News Network) has gone out of its way to try to rig the election for Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton this year. It hasn’t even tried to hide its bias in an attempt to destroy Republican nominee Donald Trump’s chances at becoming president.

Over the weekend, CNN tried desperately to find anything it could to distract the American people from the FBI’s announcement that it was reopening the investigation into Clinton’s use of an email server while she was secretary of state.

CNN ran a story on Sunday about a Trump rally in Colorado, only it blatantly lied about what Trump said at the rally in an attempt to smear him, Mediate reported.

The article in question originally ran with the headline “Trump, skeptical of mail-in balloting, encourages voting more than once if necessary.” Here’s a screen grab of the original.

“If you go to university center, they’ll give you a new ballot, they’ll void your old ballot, in some places they do that four or five times, so by tomorrow, almost everyone will have their new ballots in,” Trump said at the rally, according to CNN’s original article.

However there was more to that quote, which CNN decided not to run with.

“If you go to university center, they’ll give you a new ballot, they’ll void your old ballot. They’ll give you a new ballot, and you can go out and make sure it get’s in. Now in some places, they do that four or five times, but we don’t do that. So by tomorrow, almost everyone will have their new ballots in,” is the full quote of what Trump said…

Danish Police Searching For Syrian “Refugee” Whose Family Was Found Dead In Freezer – Breitbart

Danish police said Monday they found the bodies of a slain Syrian refugee and her two young daughters in a freezer in their apartment, as they launched a manhunt for the girls’ father.

The bodies of the 27-year-old mother and her seven and nine-year-old daughters were found inside a freezer in their apartment in the southern Danish town of Aabenraa after a concerned relative had not heard from them for days.

“Police went into the apartment and found the three bodies in a freezer,” local police said in a statement.

“The victim’s husband and the father of the two children was not in the apartment, and we are actively searching for him,” the statement added.

Hillary’s Email Server Company Got Nearly $1 Million In Government Loans After Wiping Her Emails – Watchtowers

Hillary Clinton’s e-mail server company got almost $1 million in government loans starting immediately after they were secretly asked to wipe Hillary Clinton’s name from her e-mails.

Platte River Networks (PRN) got a $493,000 loan from the Small Business Administration in August 2014 and another $350,000 loan in September 2015.

The first half-million dollar loan arrived not one month after PRN employee Paul Combetta was caught accidentally revealing his company was deleting evidence at Hillary’s request in July 2014.

The second $350,000 loan came about one year later.

You won’t hear this stuff from the lying mainstream media.

After getting the first loan, PRN moved to a large office space after previously working out of the owner’s condo.

The head of the Small Business Administration is Maria Contreras-Sweet, a Mexican immigrant who was appointed to the office by Barack Obama two months before Hillary’s PRN got the first loan.

WikiLeaks leaks have proven Hillary’s corrupt pay-to-play scheme. GotNews has shined a light on how Hillary gets favors from Hispanic and Democratic government bureaucrats before.

Did Hillary Clinton pay her e-mail server company Platte River Networks (PRN) with almost $1 million in favorable government loans – given out by a political friendly – in order to alter her illegal e-mails and get her name off them?

Report: Chinese Spies Stole Pentagon Secrets – Washington Free Beacon

Chinese spies repeatedly infiltrated U.S. national security agencies, including official email accounts, and stole U.S. secrets on Pentagon war plans for a future conflict with China, according to a forthcoming congressional commission report.

“The United States faces a large and growing threat to its national security from Chinese intelligence collection operations,” states the late draft report of the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission.

“Among the most serious threats are China’s efforts at cyber and human infiltration of U.S. national security entities.”

Chinese intelligence activities have “risen significantly” in the past 15 years and are conducted through several spy services, including the Ministry of State Security (MSS), the People’s Liberation Army (PLA), and Communist Party military organizations such as the PLA General Political Department and the Party’s United Front Work Department.

A copy of the draft annual report for 2016 was obtained by the Washington Free Beacon. The final report will be released Nov. 16.

The report identified repeated infiltrations by Chinese spies of U.S. national security entities, including the FBI and the U.S. Pacific Command.

The first tremor measuring 5.4 on the Richter scale came at 7.10pm local time on Wednesday, near Visso in Macerata province.

The second quake, measuring 6.1, came two hours later, wiping out buildings and plunging homes into darkness. It was felt as far away as Venice in the far north, Naples in the south and the capital, Rome, where historic buildings are reported to have shaken, 80 miles away from the epicentre near Perugia…

Podesta Laments Hillary’s ‘Terrible Decisions’, Poor Instincts In Leaked Email – Washington Times

The latest batch of WikiLeaks documents belonging to Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta include key advisers lamenting her “terrible instincts.”

A Sept. 6, 2015, email from Mr. Podesta to Center for American Progress President Neera Tanden covered the trials and tribulations of the campaign, at which time he broached the subject of Mrs. Clinton’s poor instincts.

“We’ve taken on a lot of water that won’t be easy to pump out of the boat. Most of that has to do with terrible decisions made pre-campaign, but a lot has to do with her instincts,” Mr. Podesta wrote.

“You know I’m not a sycophant to you by any means. But the thing that makes me most confident she will prevail is that you are there,” Ms. Tanden, now the the co-chair of Clinton-Kaine Transition Project, responded. “Almost no one knows better [than] me that her instincts can be terrible.”

Ms. Tanden has been tight-lipped about the stolen emails, a tiny fraction of the 50,000 WikiLeaks plans to release before the Nov. 8 presidential election. She declined to discuss the matter during an Oct. 20 CNN interview with Chris Cuomo by citing Russian state actors blamed for the theft, and declined to comment for a Washington Post story

Doctors Sound Alarm Over Hillary’s ‘Very Serious’ Eye Problem – American Mirror

Medical professionals are weighing in on Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s eyes, which have appeared out of sync in videos of several recent speeches on the campaign trail.

hillary-clinton-eyes2Most recently, at a rally in Cleveland, Ohio on Friday, Clinton’s left eye appeared to turn more than her right when looking toward her right, a problem that seemed to have first emerged during a Philadelphia really last month.

The Ear and Balance Institute’s Dr. Gerald Gianoli, a neuro-otology surgeon who specializes in intracranial pressure, has not personally examined Clinton, but said it’s reasonable to draw some likely conclusions about the former secretary of state’s ongoing medical issues based on her eye activity in the videos and her known medical history.

“She has intermittent weakness of the left lateral rectus muscle” that pulls her left eye to the left, Gianoli said. “Due to this weakness, the left medal rectus pulls the eye too far to the right at times (because it is relatively stronger), especially when she looks to the right.

“This causes double vision,” he continued. “Mrs. Clinton first demonstrated this problem at the Benghazi hearings when she wore the Fresnel lens (prism lens) in her glasses on the left side. Fresnel lenses are used in patients who have problems with keeping both eyes looking at the same spot – it makes it easier for them to see one image as opposed to two images.”

Gianoli said the Clinton’s personal physician, Lisa Bardack, has previously confirmed the problem, though the cause of her continued issues with irregular eye movements hasn’t been shared with the public…

“Executive Orders For Sale”: Leaked Email Shows Hillary Auctioning Off ‘Laws’ To The Highest Bidder – Zero Hedge

Authored by The Daily Sheeple’s Melissa Dykes vis SHTFPlan.com,

Unaccountable power multiplies, but this is astounding. This is a very good example of the reasons that the founders sought to limit and check power. But of course, over the years, those protections have been whittled down, and the loopholes are big enough drive tanks through. Corruption doesn’t even begin to cover it if wealthy donors – and even foreign powers – can just write checks, contribute to the Clinton Foundation, etc. – and just buy a law in return.

Why is no one standing up to this tyranny? Critics have taken George W. Bush and Barack Obama to task for abusing their power to write executive orders – and legislate with a pen when they have no constitutional power to make law at all. But Hillary, before she even takes power, is already leaving these two in the dust. So everyone is just going to take it, along with the ‘first female’ t-shirts they will be sending out as promos in the mail?

As MLK famously wrote from his Birmingham jail cell: “At first glance it may seem rather paradoxical for us consciously to break laws. One may well ask: “How can you advocate breaking some laws and obeying others?” The answer lies in the fact that there are two types of laws: just and unjust. I would be the first to advocate obeying just laws. One has not only a legal but a moral responsibility to obey just laws. Conversely, one has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws. I would agree with St. Augustine that “an unjust law is no law at all.”

Before taxpayer-provided subsidies, premiums for a midlevel benchmark plan will increase an average of 25 percent across the 39 states served by the federally run online market, according to a report from the Department of Health and Human Services. Some states will see much bigger jumps, others less.

Moreover, about 1 in 5 consumers will have plans only from a single insurer to pick from, after major national carriers such as UnitedHealth Group, Humana and Aetna scaled back their roles.

“Consumers will be faced this year with not only big premium increases but also with a declining number of insurers participating, and that will lead to a tumultuous open enrollment period,” said Larry Levitt, who tracks the health care law for the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation…

The Clinton campaign sent out invites to New York reporters in April 2015 on their off-the-record meeting on how to sell Hillary Clinton to the public.

These 38 reporters should NEVER BE TRUSTED!

Another group of 25 mainstream reporters were invited to a dinner at Jhn Podesta’s house on April 9.

This was a completely different list of reporters!

Here is the current RSVP list to the Thursday Night (4/9) dinner at Podesta’s. As a reminder, this is with the 25 reporters more closely following HRC (aka the future bus).

Top University Stole Millions From UK Taxpayers By Faking Global Warming Research – Daily Caller
.

.
A global warming research center at the London School of Economics got millions of dollars from UK taxpayers by taking credit for research it didn’t perform, an investigation by The Daily Mail revealed.

The UK government gave $11 million dollars to the Centre for Climate Change Economics and Policy (CCCEP) in exchange for research that the organization reportedly never actually did.

Many papers CCCEP claimed to have published to get government money weren’t about global warming, were written before the organization was even founded, or were written by researchers unaffiliated with CCCEP. The government never checked CCCEP’s supposed publication lists, saying they were “taken on trust,” according to the report.

“It is serious misconduct to claim credit for a paper you haven’t supported, and it’s fraud to use that in a bid to renew a grant,” Professor Richard Tol, a climate economics expert from Sussex University whose research was reportedly stolen by CCCEP, told The Daily Mail…

Trump Denies Groping Allegations, Calls NYT Article ‘Coordinated Character Assassination’ – Daily Caller
.

.
Republican nominee Donald Trump’s campaign released a statement denying allegations in the New York Times that he groped two women.

One woman claimed Trump groped her 36 years ago, while the other claimed he groped her in 2005.

Calling the allegations “a completely false, coordinated character assassination” attempt, senior communications advisor Jason Miller added, “It is absurd to think that one of the most recognizable business leaders on the planet with a strong record of empowering women in his companies would do the things alleged in this story, and for this to only become public decades later in the final month of a campaign for president should say it all.”…

NYT Gets Punked: Fake Groping Victim Used Velvet Underground Song To Describe Trumped-Up Attack – Gateway Pundit

The hacks at The New York Times released a hit piece on Donald Trump tonight. (Gee, who could have seen that coming!?!)

In their article a woman says she was groped by Donald Trump.

In his 70 years of being in the media spotlight Donald Trump HAS NEVER been accused of groping or assaulting a woman. But their candidate Hillary needs some assistance, so The New York Times ran with the hit piece, anyway.

Too bad they got punked.

The woman in their story fed them lines from a Velvet Underground song.

University Of Florida Offers 24/7 Counseling For Students ‘Troubled’ By Halloween Costumes – American Mirror

The University of Florida wants students to know that if they’re offended or scared by Halloween, there’s counselors on hand to walk them through the traumatic experience.

“October brings fall weather and Halloween,” the university wrote in a blog titled “Halloween Costume Choices” posted to its website Monday.

“If you choose to participate in Halloween activities, we encourage you to think about your choices of costumes and themes. Some Halloween costumes reinforce stereotypes of particular races, genders, cultures, or religions,” it continues. “Regardless of intent, these costumes can perpetuate negative stereotypes, causing harm and offense to groups of people.”

FBI Source: Majority Of Staff On Clinton Case Wanted Her Prosecuted – Daily Caller

The decision at the FBI to not prosecute Hillary Clinton over her mishandling of classified information was solely from the top down, a source told Fox News.

“No trial level attorney agreed, no agent working the case agreed, with the decision not to prosecute – it was a top-down decision,” said the source who is described as an official close to the Clinton case.

The FBI official said that Director James Comey’s announcement on July 5 angered and disgusted members of the investigative team which included over 100 FBI agents and analysts worked who worked overtime with six DOJ attorneys from the department’s National Security Division and Counter Espionage Section.

“It is safe to say the vast majority felt she should be prosecuted,” the senior FBI official told Fox News, noting that it was “unanimous” that they all wanted Clinton’s “security clearance yanked.”

According to an e-mail from the John Podesta Wikileaks e-mail dump this weak, Clinton’s team may have had access to Justice Department employees during the investigation that helped her and her staff receive favorable treatment.

House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte along with other House Republican members called for a probe to investigate “the special treatment given to key witnesses during the investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s unauthorized use of a private email server to send and receive classified information.”…

Anonymous Claims Israeli Intelligence Video Of Bill Clinton Raping 13-Year-Old Girl About To Be Released – Real Strategy

A stunning new Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) report circulating in the Kremlin today states that the entire US presidential election is nearing an “explosive crisis” over a secretly made Israeli intelligence video recording showing former President Bill Clinton raping a 13-year-old girl child that Hillary Clinton has kept hidden from public knowledge with help from the American propaganda mainstream media – but by her embroiling Donald Trump in her husbands sex crimes now threatens it being released.

Undercover Video: Hillary Staffer Says It’s OK To Rip Up Republican Voter Registration Forms – USA Politics Now

An undercover video campaign aimed at exposing voter fraud has caught a campaign staffer for Hillary Clinton confessing that ripping up voter registration forms – if they are for Republicans – is “fine.” The video also reveals a sexist atmosphere inside the Clinton campaign in which another staffer boasts he would probably have to “grab a–” twice before he’d even reprimanded. It underscores the double standard by Democrats who have been critical of the 11-year-old recording of Donald Trump making lewd remarks about women.

In a new video from James O’Keefe at Project Veritas both Wylie Mao, a field organizer for the Clinton campaign and the Democratic Party of Florida in West Palm Beach, and Trevor Lafauci, a Clinton campaign staffer, agree that ripping up registration forms from Republicans should be “fine.”

“If I rip up completed VR forms, like 20 of them, I think I’ll just get reprimanded. I don’t think I would get fired,” Mao said. And Lafauci, after being told that someone else ripped up Republican registration forms, said, “Yeah, that should be fine.” When Project Veritas journalists confronted both Mao and Lafauci about the comments they made on camera, they “refused to answer and walked away,” the organization said.

Sources have reported that O’Keefe is planning to release a series of videos from his explosive undercover investigation exposing fraud and corruption at the highest levels among operatives close to the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign.

Professor Slams “Special Snowflakes” Living In “Fantasy World” – Zero Hedge
.

.
The political correctness movement that has swept college campuses, corporate America and mainstream life can be traced back to a few psychological trends.

Howard Schwartz, professor emeritus of Oakland University, has for years studied the psychology underlying political correctness, and in his new book Political Correctness and the Destruction of Social Order: Chronicling the Rise of the Pristine Self, he offers some clarity on why the term “snowflakes” is now synonymous with college students today.

Schwartz, who taught classes in social and behavioral science within its business school, said the term stems from what he calls “the rise of the pristine self.”

Schwartz writes in the book that “this is a self that is touched by nothing but love. The problem is that nobody is touched by nothing but love, and so if a person has this as an expectation, if they have built their sense of themselves around this premise, the inevitable appearance of the something other than love blows this structure apart.”…

James Comey And Loretta Lynch Should Be Impeached For Whitewashing Clinton’s Crimes – Sydney Powell

Just when one thinks the cavalier cabal of Clinton and her cronies has exhausted all manner of corruption, yet another outrage surfaces, implicating even more people.

The bombshell this week is that Loretta Lynch and James Comey not only gave immunity to Hillary’s closest co-conspirators Cheryl Mills and Heather Samuelson – who, despite being attorneys, destroyed evidence right and left – but, in a secret side deal, agreed to limit the FBI’s review of the Clinton team laptops to pre-January 2015 and to destroy the laptops when the FBI review was complete.

Congress and every law-abiding citizen in this country should be outraged. This blatant destruction of evidence is obstruction of justice itself.

Police Detective Comes Forward To Reveal How Donald Trump Helped Catch New York’s ‘East Side Rapist’ – Angry Patriot

The Washington Post is exposing its partisan political bent to the Left by trotting out a story about a “lewd” conversation that Donald Trump had over a decade ago. But real people are coming to his defense by exampling stories of how he has been generous, supportive and hands-on when it comes to helping and protecting women throughout his life.

In a viral Facebook post released by Trump supporters, a video chronicles just one of the many things that Donald Trump has done to help keep women safe. In the video, a former New York City Police Department detective talks about the East Side Rapist case’ a case that haunted Manhattan for years in the 1990s. Had it not been for Donald Trump’s role in disseminating critical information about the rapist, many more women would have been brutally raped by this predator.

It is unsung acts like this – dozens and dozens in number – that relegate stories like the one the Washington Post published to the ash heap of disingenuous political rhetoric. If we must be subjected to this kind of political banter with just a month left to the election, then all of the information about how Trump has helped and supported the female community should come out.

In keeping with his outward support of the law enforcement community, Donald Trump’s past actions have validated his claims. Time after time, when called upon by our brave men and women of law enforcement to lend support or aid, Trump has stood up to the task and come through for the men and women in blue.

“In the late 90’s I was involved in a case called the East Side Rape Case,” the NYPD detective said. “The case was a serial rapist who at gunpoint raped and sodomized at least 16 victims. It was a terror campaign that went on for at least 3 years.”…

Denver Restaurant Accused Of Racism Over ‘Black Olives Matter’ Joke Written On Burrito Wrapper – American Mirror

A Denver man was extremely offended this weekend and called to complain to a manager at Illegal Pete’s burrito shop over a racist message an employee wrote on his burrito wrapper: Black Olives Matter.

Jovi Wansley told Fox 31 he stopped at Illegal Pete’s with friend Connor Chainhalt on Saturday night and they both ordered burritos to go, Wansley’s with black olives and Chainhalt’s without.

When the two sat down to eat a short time later, Wansely, who is black, discovered the offensive message scrawled on the top of his burrito, like a slap across the face.

“My burrito, on the foil, it says ‘Black Olives Matter,’ in a mockery of Black Lives Matter,” Wansley said. “With everything going on in the world today, I don’t think it’s acceptable.”

Chainhalt was also offended by the burrito.

“This is my good friend,” he said. “And to single him out like that, is not okay, because of his skin color.”

“It’s an ignorant statement. Like you just don’t do that. That’s something you don’t do, especially with everything going on at this point,” he said.

The incident prompted Wansely to call Illegal Pete’s to talk to the manager, who said the message was meant as a joke and apologized. The restaurant owner, Pete Turner, told Fox 31 the employee responsible is not racist, but was instead attempting to distinguish between the burritos and just made a stupid mistake. The employee, who did not know Wansely is black because he works behind a partition, was sent home after Turner received the complaint.

Wansley told the news site the burrito made him feel “helpless.”…

If convicted, Arpaio could spend up to six months in jail.

Hill’s Shills: Leaks Have Exposed Journalists In Clinton’s Corner – Daily Caller

The massive trove of emails by Clinton confidant John Podesta released by Wikileaks has exposed journalists from a variety of media organizations who are “with her.”

CNBC chief Washington correspondent and New York Times political writer John Harwood is the most prominent journalist who is cozy in the emails with the Clinton camp. The CNBC anchor is also the one who should arguably be the most embarrassed.

Harwood in several emails to Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta showers Hillary in praise. Harwood in one email to Podesta says “[Hillary] was good here” after an event and in another describes her as “pretty strong.”

Worse than just showing his love for Hillary, Harwood in the emails helps the campaign. The CNBC anchor describes a story he is writing about Hillary as one “she wants.”

In another email, Harwood tells Podesta to “watch out” for Dr. Ben Carson.

“Ben Carson could give you real trouble in a general,” Harwood wrote. The CNBC anchor was a moderator of a Republican primary debate and bragged to Podesta in an email exchange about asking Donald Trump, “Let’s be honest, is this a comic book version of a presidential campaign?”

The Daily Caller has reached out to CNBC to see if they will be addressing these emails and whether Harwood will stay on air. They have not responded.

Byrne began by saying he “couldn’t disagree with Glenn Beck more” about the radio host’s proclamation that voting for Hillary Clinton was a more moral choice than voting for Donald Trump.

“Voting for Hillary Clinton is, to me, a complete mistake, and here’s why: I started out in the U.S. Air Force. I had to pass a battery of tests to get to the point where, in the U.S. Air Force, I was allowed to protect our nuclear arsenal. I then went on to become a Secret Service uniformed division officer for 12 years, where I had to take a polygraph test.

Illegal Alien Charged With Kidnapping, Raping 6-Year-Old Texas Girl – Breitbart

Police in Fort Worth, Texas, arrested an illegal immigrant and charged him with kidnapping and raping a six-year-old girl, reports reveal.

The child disappeared from her home in southeast Fort Worth sometime early in the morning of October 8, her parents said. A quick search party was organized but the child was not found until about 2 PM when someone heard screams coming from a patch of woods nearby.

Police say Edis Moya Alas, a 35-year-old El Salvadorian national, kidnapped the girl from her home and took her to an area near Titus Park were he then raped her, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported. Police were unsure how Alas knew of the girl or how he gained access to the home.

“The young child immediately saw police officers and ran towards us. She was very scared. She was very nervous,” police officials told NewsFix. “We owe a great debt to the citizen that actually heard the screams and notified us to go into that field area.”

The child’s parents said they all went to bed at around 10 PM on Friday night but the victim’s father had discovered the front door to the home standing open and his daughter missing sometime after 4 AM.

After being apprehended, Immigration Customs Enforcement officials told the Fort Worth Police that Alas was in the U.S. illegally.
