Charity Paying People To Give One-Star Amazon Reviews To Culturally Appropriative Halloween Costumes – Heatstreet

DoSomething.org‘s “1 star for hate” campaign is giving out $1,500 scholarships for people who spam one-star, copy/pasted reviews on Amazon listings they believe are “culturally appropriated.” The more one star reviews users submit, the greater chance they have of winning the scholarship cash.

Last year they set their ire on a Caitlyn Jenner Vanity Fair costume they felt was transphobic, getting people to write reviews like, “Wearing this costume on Halloween but enjoying cisgender privilege the other 364 days of the year is a pretty sh*tty thing to do. Stop selling this costume.”

The campaign was able to get two retailers to drop the costume.

This year they’re targeting Native American, Saudi, and “Dia de los Muertos” outfits, getting people to mass produce fake reviews for one costume each week.

The copy/pasted text this week for these Dia de los Muertos costumes is intentionally misleading, claiming the reviewer had purchased the costume in the past, before getting woke and realizing it was racist. This practice clearly violates Amazon’s review policy, prohibiting paid reviews.

When scrolling through the reviews (which are 90 percent one star), it’s pretty clear all the positive ones come from actual costumers while the negative are overwhelmingly copy/pasted from DoSomething.org.

The tastefulness of these costumes is certainly up for debate, but is spamming misleading reviews to an impartial website really the best way to get a point across?…

Ed Klein: Hillary Has A Bad Heart Valve, Turned Down Surgery – Newsmax
.

.
Hillary Clinton has a heart valve problem and turned down advice from her doctors to have surgery in order to avoid any public fallout from it, author Ed Klein said Monday night.

Klein, the author of “Guilty as Sin: Uncovering New Evidence of Corruption and How Hillary Clinton and the Democrats Derailed the FBI Investigation” spoke with Sean Hannity on Fox News regarding his new book about the Clintons.

After confirming Clinton has an irregular heart beat, Klein said her health problems are far worse.

“She has a heart valve problem. The doctors wanted to replace the valve and she didn’t do it,” Klein said.

When Hannity followed up by saying a doctor would discuss with a patient fixing a heart valve condition via surgery, Klein said that conversation took place…

12,587 Syrian “Refugees” Admitted In FY 2016: 12,486 Muslims, 68 Christians, 24 Yazidis – CNS

The administration admitted a total of 12,587 Syrian refugees during the just-ended fiscal year, exceeding the target President Obama declared last fall by 2,587 (20.5 percent).

Of the 12,587, the vast majority are Sunni Muslims – 12,363 (98.2 percent) – while another 103 are identified in State Department Refugee Processing Center data simply as Muslims and a further 20 as Shi’a Muslims.

Sixty-eight of the 12,587 Syrian refugees (0.5 percent) are Christians. They comprise 16 Catholics, eight Orthodox, five Protestants, four Jehovah’s Witnesses, one Greek Orthodox, and 34 refugees self-identified simply as Christians.

The remainder of the Syrian refugees resettled in the U.S. in FY 2016 are 24 Yazidis, eight refugees with religion given as “other,” and one with “no religion.”

The final month of the fiscal year followed the pattern of previous ones: 1,847 Syrian refugees were admitted, of whom 1,812 were Sunnis, 13 were other Muslims, 12 were Christians, seven were Yazidis, and three were “other” religion.

Throughout the year, the numbers of Christians and other religious minorities among the Syrians granted refugee status in the U.S. were dwarfed by those of Sunni Muslims.

Although the majority of Syrians are Sunnis, the number of Sunnis among the refugees was still disproportionately high, and the number of Christians disproportionately low, when compared to the overall population makeup…

Hillary’s H-1B Outsourcing Program Has 100,000 Foreign Workers In Midwest White-Collar Jobs – Breitbart
.

.
Hillary Clinton has strongly backed the unpopular H-1B outsourcing program since at least 2005, even as it has gradually sent 100,000 foreign professionals into Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania to compete for jobs against white-collar American professionals and young college graduates.

That could be a 2016 problem for Clinton because it is a direct economic threat to one of her strongest constituencies – university educated professionals. In fact, there are so many foreign workers in those three states that there’s a semi-hidden job network to help them apply for jobs ahead of American professionals.

The huge extra supply of foreign university labor, according to the law of supply and demand, pushes down the salaries earned by American professionals in those states. Nationwide, this so-called “immigration tax” annually transfers $500 billion away from blue-collar and white-collar Americans towards employers, Wall Street, and new immigrants, according to a Harvard analysis….

Clinton Staff Panics As Journalists Capture Video Of Gurney Being Wheeled Backstage – Government Slaves

Clinton staffers looked concerned after Infowars reporters captured a gurney being wheeled backstage at a Hillary rally in Akron, Ohio last night.

Footage captured by Millie Weaver shows the hospital bed being moved as Clinton supporters wait patiently for Hillary to appear.

Moments later, a Clinton staffer is seen looking nervous while taking photos of Weaver and her cameraman.

The video then shows an EMS worker exiting the backstage area with a stressed look on his face. Hillary’s security staff also look nervous before Clinton finally appears.

“They’re trying to get a feel for the crowd to see if the crowd is getting upset or impatient,” remarked Weaver.

Video from earlier in the day in Toledo showed Hillary popping another lozenge, suggesting her coughing problems have not gone away.

As we reported last month, the gurney was also spotted during Hillary’s event in Cleveland, Ohio, which was notable for the fact that Clinton suffered a 4 minute coughing fit during her speech.

Gun Sales Hit 17th Straight Monthly Record, Up 27 Percent – Washington Examiner

Gun sales hit the 17th consecutive monthly record in September according to FBI data released on Monday, and overall sales are up 27 percent compared to the same period last year.

A total of 1,992,219 background checks were processed through the bureau’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System for the month of September, higher than the 1,795,102 conducted in September 2015.

The number of checks run through the FBI’s NICS system is a reliable indicator of how firearm sales are trending, though there is no precise correlation between the number of checks and the number of guns being sold. Licensed dealers are required to run a check in the database every time they make a sale, but sometimes turn buyers down…

Fuming Czech Leader Orders Brussels To Deport Economic Migrants – Daily Express

Economic migrants arriving in Europe should be immediately deported from the continent in a tough new crackdown on the refugee crisis, a fuming EU leader demanded today.

Furious Czech leader Milos Zeman ordered Brussels to send all failed asylum seekers to “empty places” in North Africa or “uninhabited Greek islands” to deter further mass migration to Europe.

The outspoken president said EU nations should provide refuge to people fleeing war and persecution in Syria, but insisted anyone found to be an economic migrant should be sent home.

His strident intervention comes as European states continue to bicker over the best way to bring the spiralling migrant crisis under control, with big cracks opening up in the 28-member bloc.

German leader Angela Merkel has recently called for the roll-out of deals similar to the one Brussels has with Turkey – whereby all economic migrants are sent back across the Aegean – to North African countries like Egypt.

And Mr Zeman blasted: “I am for deportation of all economic migrants.

“Of course I respect the cruelty of civil war in Syria, Iraq, and so on. But we do not speak about those people, we speak about economic migrants.

“We are in Greece, and Greece has plenty of uninhabited islands, and big foreign debt.

“So if you have ‘hotspots’ in Greek islands, this would be a sort of payment of foreign debt.”…

Remember That Time When Clinton’s State Department ‘Misplaced’ $6 Billion – Townhall

Hillary Clinton is one of the biggest opponents of big business, especially of The Trump Organization. In 1996, Donald Trump found himself being challenged the same way most American risk takers are challenged when he overextended his business. The Taj Mahal, the Trump Shuttle airline, and the purchase of a megayacht eventually led to the company being $1 billion in debt. In a situation where most businessmen give up and lose their drive, Trump doubled down and nearly tripled his net worth over the next 10 years, which was the motivation for his 1997 book The Art of the Comeback.

Clinton laughs at this type of entrepreneurial hardship and says that such risks are anti-American. She applauds herself for never taking risks in business. She knows she cannot be held accountable for any personal failures because there are none. Her failures are instead the American people’s failures.

So why isn’t she held accountable for losing $6 billion of U.S. taxpayer dollars in the State Department from 2008 to 2014?

According to a report by the Inspector General, Clinton simply lost the $6 billion through “improper filings.”

The State Department misplaced and lost some $6 billion due to the improper filing of contracts during the past six years, mainly during the tenure of former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, according to a newly released Inspector General report…

FBI Allowed Hillary Aides To Destroy Laptops In Newly Exposed Side Deals – Zero Hedge

Furthermore, we learn that according to the immunity agreements, FBI agents limited their search to documents authored before Jan. 2015…

Portland Elementary School Authorizes Satanic Temple To Create After-School Club For Kids – News With Views

If this isn’t proof positive of the demise of America, then what is?

The Portland chapter of the Satanic Temple – a reference that’s significant in itself, as it shows a plurality and therefore, growth of organized Satanism in America – has just won an accommodation from school officials to offer an after-school club for children.

It’s called the “After School Satan Club.” How nice. It’s aimed at attracting the elementary-age crowd.

Beginning Oct. 19, Sacramento Elementary School will open doors to the satanic activity, which is being billed as lessons “on science and rational thinking,” according to one of the temple’s local chapter heads, Finn Rezz.

Rezz kindly explained to the Oregonian it’s not that the members of the Satanic Temple are truly Satanists, worshiping some sort of spiritual or supernatural entity of the dark side. Rather, he went on, most are simply atheists who view Satan “as an allegory for free thought,” the newspaper said.

The club is solely to foster in its participants a sense of “benevolence and empathy for everybody,” Rezz said.

He also said the After School Satan Club is intended to provide students an option to the “Good News Club,” a get-together arranged by the Child Evangelism Fellowship – a Bible-based group – that’s allowed to meet at the school once a month.

As if the two groups are morally equivalent.

This is the Child Evangelism group’s stated mission, on its webpage: “Child Evangelism Fellowship is a Bible-centered, worldwide organization composed of born-again believers whose purpose is to evangelize boys and girls with the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, disciple them in the Word of God and establish them in a Bible believing church for Christian living…

Exposed: The Corrupt Clinton Foundation You’ve Never Heard Of – Richard Pollock

Three months after leaving the White House in 2001, former President Bill Clinton arrived in India to cheering throngs to help those who had just lost a million homes in the aftermath of a massive earthquake that killed 20,000 and injured 166,000.

In classic Clinton style, he solemnly promised that his new nonprofit – called the American India Foundation (AIF) – would rebuild 100 villages. Rajat Gupta, his millionaire co-chairman, pledged $1 billion for the victims.

It never happened. Years later, AIF’s annual reports were reviewed by the Daily Caller News Foundation and show only seven villages were partially rebuilt by Clinton’s group, and a mere $2.7 million of $53 million raised over a decade went to the earthquake victims…

Flashback: Reuters Audit Finds Clinton Charity Hiding Foreign Donations On IRS Tax Filings – Conservative Treehouse

With all the MSM banter about taxes today in the headlines, here’s a report that was conveniently dismissed by the same pearl-clutching media. In April 2015 Reuters reported on Hillary Clinton’s family charities falsifying tax filings to the IRS and not reporting donations from foreign governments…

(Reuters) Hillary Clinton’s family’s charities are refiling at least five annual tax returns after a Reuters review found errors in how they reported donations from governments, and said they may audit other Clinton Foundation returns in case of other errors.

[…] The charities’ errors generally take the form of under-reporting or over-reporting, by millions of dollars, donations from foreign governments, or in other instances omitting to break out government donations entirely when reporting revenue, the charities confirmed to Reuters.

The errors, which have not been previously reported, appear on the form 990s that all non-profit organizations must file annually with the Internal Revenue Service to maintain their tax-exempt status. A charity must show copies of the forms to anyone who wants to see them to understand how the charity raises and spends money.

[…] For three years in a row beginning in 2010, the Clinton Foundation reported to the IRS that it received zero in funds from foreign and U.S. governments, a dramatic fall-off from the tens of millions of dollars in foreign government contributions reported in preceding years.

Those entries were errors, according to the foundation: several foreign governments continued to give tens of millions of dollars toward the foundation’s work on climate change and economic development through this three-year period…

Crowning The Comeback King – NY Times
October 25, 1995

Though there are still four years to go in the 90’s, business and government leaders in New York honored Donald J. Trump yesterday for pulling off what they called “the comeback of the decade.”

Mr. Trump, the developer who came to epitomize opulent wealth during the 80’s before tumbling into deep financial trouble, has managed to erase much of his debt and is moving ahead with major projects at a time other developers are idling.

Judging from the attention showered on him yesterday at the Union League Club, some of New York’s civic and business leaders are quite captivated by Mr. Trump, despite the financial uncertainties that still surround some of his properties…

Flashback: NY Times Finds Clintons Took Improper Whitewater Tax Deductions – American Thinker

The Clintons took improper tax deductions for losses and expenses in the Whitewater land deals. Then, at the instruction of their attorney, in 1996, the Clintons had to amend their tax returns to pay the IRS for the improper and excessive deductions related to Whitewater.

Jeff Gerth reported in the NY Times on 05/25/96:

White House disclosed today that President Clinton and his wife, Hillary, paid the Government $2,910 in back taxes and interest earlier this month as a result of incorrect income tax filings in the 1980’s relating to their Whitewater real estate investment.

The payment was made on May 1, after outside experts had reviewed the Clintons’ tax returns at the request of the couple’s personal lawyer, David E. Kendall.

Mr. Kendall had requested the review in response to a report issued last August by Representative Jim Leach, the Iowa Republican who is chairman of the House Committee on Banking and Financial Services. In that report, Mr. Leach contended that the Clintons owed $13,272 because of what he described as eight tax errors stemming from their Whitewater investment.

Note that the Clintons amended their tax returns only after the Republicans questioned the Whitewater deductions, and David Kendall, attorney for the Clintons, had the tax returns reviewed and advised them to pay the tax. This was strictly a CYA operation by Kendall on behalf of the Clintons.

The Clintons, and the MSM, have no shame. They took deductions for Bill’s used underwear and for improper and excessive Whitewater losses and expenses, but now the Clintons, and their cheerleaders in the MSM, are questioning Trump’s deduction 20 years ago of a legitimate business loss of about $900 million…

Clinton Campaign Admits Hillary Used Same Tax Avoidance “Scheme” As Trump – Zero Hedge

Well this is a little awkward. With the leaked 1995 Trump tax returns ‘scandal’ focused on the billionaire’s yuuge “net operating loss” and how it might have ‘legally’ enabled him to pay no taxes for years, we now discover none other than Hillary Rodham Clinton utilized a $700,000 “loss” to avoid paying some taxes in 2015.

The Clinton Campaign was quick to jump on the leaked Trump tax filing with Robby Mook tweeting:

— Trump “apparently got to avoid paying taxes for nearly two decades while tens of millions of working families paid theirs.” —

And Hillary following up, adding Trump “apparently got to avoid paying taxes for nearly two decades – while tens of millions of working families paid theirs.”

However, a look back at Hillary Clinton’s tax returns from 2015 (here), proudly displayed by the campaign proving she has nothing to hide – shows something awkward on page 17…

State Department-Funded Nonprofit That John Kerry Had ‘No Role’ In Was Founded In His Home – Daily Caller

A nonprofit created in Secretary of State John Kerry’s upscale Boston home and managed by his daughter Vanessa Kerry has received more than $9 million from the Department of State, a Daily Caller News Foundation investigation has found.

Seed Global Health was founded at 19 Louisburg Sq in Boston’s Beacon Hill, tax forms indicate. News reports show that’s Kerry’s home address, which Zillow estimates is worth nearly $18 million. Kerry’s wife, Teresa, is an heir to the Heinz family fortune.

Beacon Hill is the most expensive block in Boston, with median home values estimated at $6.7 million in 2015, a Boston Globe affiliate reported. The Boston Business Journal ranked Kerry’s house the third most valuable home in the city in 2013.

The Department of State has funneled more than $9 million through the Peace Corps to Seed since 2012, TheDCNF previously revealed. The money is awarded under the Global Health Service Partnership (GHSP) – a Peace Corps-run and State Department-funded program that Vanessa Kerry created in conjunction with officials from both agencies.

Seed has never been required to compete with other organizations for the funding. It recruits medical volunteers for overseas service.

“As we have made clear, Secretary Kerry played no role in this decision making while in the Senate or subsequently while at the State Department,” Department of State spokesman John Kirby told TheDCNF. “There was – and remains – no conflict of interest here.”….

Illegal Foreign Voting In Virginia Covered Up By Soros-Backed Democrat Officials – Breitbart

Muslim Man Shot His Daughter Twice In The Head While She Slept, Claims It Was An Accident – WorldNetDaily

Police say they can’t figure out the motive behind an Ohio father’s horrific crime of violence against his own daughter, and the media won’t touch the topic, but some say the answer lies hidden in plain view.

Jamal Mansour, 63, of Rocky River, Ohio, walked into his adult daughter’s bedroom at 1:15 a.m. Tuesday and shot her twice in the head while she slept. His daughter, Tahini Mansour, 27, died about 10 hours later at a local hospital.

“We don’t have a solid motive other than an argument occurred between a father and his daughter,” said Lt. George Lichman with Rocky River Police.

Islam experts and former Muslims say the suspect’s behavior is rife with clues but don’t look for the police or media to flesh them out and share those clues with the public.

Mansour is a Muslim immigrant from Jordan and his alleged execution-style killing of his daughter bears the hallmarks of Islamic honor violence, says Daniel Akbari, a former top Shariah lawyer in Iran who defected to the U.S. several years ago and now lives in Texas.

“Mr. Mansour might have assimilated to Western culture sufficiently to shave his beard and wear jeans but not to accept his daughter behaving like western girls,” said Akbari, author of “Honor Killing: A Professional’s Guide to Sexual Relations and Ghayra Violence from the Islamic Sources.”

After shooting Tahini in the forehead, twice, Mansour stood before a judge later that day and said it was an “accident.”…

German Mayor Beaten Unconscious After Announcing Plan To Accept “Refugees” – Zero Hedge
.

.
Over the past several months, the German people have become increasingly frustrated with Merkel’s “open-border” policy that has allowed over 1mm migrants to flow into the country from the Middle East and North Africa. The flood of migrants has brought with it a wave of violent crime including sexual assaults resulting in a rising nationalist tension as people have turned their backs on Merkel and her Christian Democratic Union party in recent elections.

The most recent example of backlash over the migrant crisis comes from the small German town of Oersdorf in Northern Germany. The Mayor of Oersdorf, Joachim Kebschull (61), was recently beaten unconscious outside of the city’s Town Hall where the construction committee was meeting to discuss a new housing development for migrants. The mayor was apparently struck with a club from behind as he stepped out the Town Hall building to get a laptop from his car.

According to The Telegraph, just hours before the committee meeting Kebschull received a threatening letter saying:

“He who will not listen will have to feel.”

“Oersdorf for Oersdorfers”

According to DW, Kebschull had been receiving threats for months. In fact, the committee meeting had already been postponed twice over bomb threats.

The controversy surrounded a local subsidized housing revitalization where the mayor wanted to offer apartments to asylum-seekers. “If we could also offer a family of refugees a new home in our village, we would like to take this opportunity and make a small contribution to people who had to flee their homes,” the association said in a statement on its website…

Hillary Cancels California Event Due To “Pneumonia” Relapse – USA Politics Now

Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton has again cancelled an event in California as a result of her health and the campaign is claiming she is being treated for pneumonia. The cancelation marks the third day – following Monday and Tuesday of last week – that the candidate’s health has pulled her from the campaign trail.

Questions surrounding her health ramped up after she collapsed at the 15th memorial service for the September 11, 2001 terror attacks.

On Sunday, Mrs. Clinton gave spoke to reporters on her campaign airplane to response to her rival Donald Trump regarding the terror attacks in Minnesota, New Jersey and New York. She appeared to be heavily sedated, which kicked off the hashtag #ZombieHillary on Twitter.

Governor Moonbeam Considering Bill To Allow Jailed Felons To Vote – CNS

The California state Legislature sent a bill to Gov. Jerry Brown’s desk last month that would allow felons serving time in county jails the right to vote.

Current California law only allows felons the right to vote after they have completed parole.

The California constitution states that “The Legislature shall prohibit improper practices that affect elections and shall provide for the disqualification of electors while mentally incompetent or imprisoned or on parole for the conviction of a felony.”

The legislation addresses this language in the state’s constitution by defining imprisoned as “currently serving a state or federal prison sentence.”

Cory Salzillo, legislative director for the California State Sheriffs’ Association, pointed out to the Daily Signal that “the bill would create an odd circumstance in which inmates out of prison on parole are prohibited from voting, but felons behind bars in county jails could vote.”

Brown has until September 30th to consider signing the bill into law.

He previously signed the Criminal Justice Realignment Act in 2011, which allowed officials to move low-level offenders who are denied probation to county jails to address overcrowding in the state’s prisons.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) supports the legislation, pointing out that “three out of every four men in California prisons are men of color,” concluding, “felony disenfranchisement laws are a legacy of Jim Crow.”…

Ahmad Khan Rahami Is Deadbeat Dad Who Was Previously Arrested For Stabbing Family Member – Daily Mail

The 28-year-old man suspected of planting bombs in Manhattan and New Jersey over the weekend was previously arrested for stabbing a person in the leg and possession of a firearm in 2014, DailMail.com has learned.

But a grand jury let him walk, despite a warning from the arresting officer that Rahami was likely ‘a danger to himself or others.’

Ahmad Khan Rahami, who was arrested on Monday in Linden, N.J., after a manhunt ended in a shootout with police, was also a deadbeat dad who didn’t like America and hated gays, according to the mother of his young daughter.

Rahami is accused of planting multiple homemade bombs in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan, which injured 29 on Saturday night, as well as explosives near a train station in Elizabeth, N.J. that were disarmed by law enforcement on Sunday.

This was not the first arrest for Rahami, a New Jersey resident who emigrated from Afghanistan and became a naturalized U.S. citizen.

Criminal court filings obtained by DailyMail.com show he has previous arrests for assault and gun charges.

However, in that case a grand jury failed to indict Rahami and he was let back out onto the streets.

On August 22, 2014, Rahami was arrested for aggravated assault and unlawful possession of a knife after allegedly stabbing an individual named Nasim Rahami in the left leg in an ‘attempt to cause serious bodily injury.’…

Clinton Foundation AIDS Program Distributed ‘Watered-Down’ Drugs To Third World Countries – Daily Caller

Former President Bill Clinton and his Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) distributed “watered-down” HIV/AIDs drugs to patients in sub-Saharan Africa, and “likely increased” the risks of morbidity and mortality, according to a draft congressional report obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

The congressional report,“The Clinton Foundation and The India Success Story,” was initiated by Rep. Marsha Blackburn, a Tennessee Republican and vice-chair of the House Energy and Commerce Committee.

The CHAI program to help AIDS victims is considered one of the Clinton Foundation’s most important contributions and is probably its best known initiative.

The congressional report focused on Clinton’s decade-long relationship with a controversial Indian drug manufacturer called Ranbaxy, which CHAI used as one of its main distributors of HIV/AIDS drugs to Third World countries.

It also highlighted the work of Dinesh Thakur, a former Ranbaxy employee who became a star whistleblower and permitted the U.S. government to launch a landmark lawsuit against the Indian firm. The company was vulnerable to U.S. prosecution because it also sold its generic drugs on the U.S. market.

Ranbaxy ultimately pleaded guilty in 2013 to seven criminal counts with intent to defraud and the introduction of adulterated drugs into interstate commerce.

The Department of Justice further levied a $500 million fine and forfeiture on the company…

Kmart Closing 64 Stores, Firing Thousands Across 28 States – Daily Mail
.

.
Kmart is to close 64 stores across 28 states. Employees were told of the closures on Friday and stores will begin liquidation sales by the weekend before being closed for good in December.

Sears Holdings, which owns Sears and Kmart, says the closures are the only way it can ‘accelerate its transformation and its return to profitability’.

Moody’s analysts say Sears and Kmart don’t have enough money, or access to cash, to stay in business.

Last week, analysts downgraded Sears’ liquidity rating, saying the company is losing cash fast and will have either rely on outside funding or start to sell off assets, such as real estate, to sustain operations.

In the spring of this year, 78 stores – 68 Kmart units, and 10 Sears stores – were shuttered as part of the drive to stem the bleeding…

Anger Over ‘Graveyard Of Lifejackets’ Propaganda Stunt In London’s Parliament Square – Daily Mail

A demonstration in Parliament Square that was given special permission by Labour London Mayor Sadiq Khan has provoked anger today.

Around 2,500 lifejackets have been laid out across the site usually reserved for military memorials in an all-day protest – despite a three-hour limit on such events imposed by the Mayor’s office.

It was organised by charity the International Rescue Commission – whose president is former Labour MP and foreign secretary David Miliband – urging the UK to do more to help those fleeing war torn countries by giving them a home here.

But many have criticised the ‘misjudged’ display and said it will encourage more people to risk their lives in dangerous crossings to Europe.

It came just hours after Theresa May warned Britain has the right to turn away tens of thousands of economic migrants posing as refugees.

Peter Bone, Conservative MP and former chairman on the All Party Group on Human Trafficking, said the protest was counter productive as it would ‘condemn more people to death’ by encouraging them to risk their lives coming to Europe.

He said: ‘If this protest is highlighting the fact that there are these evil criminal gangs out there giving people fake life jackets then that is fine and an important point.

But if it’s saying we should bring more people to the UK then it is just going to encourage more and more people to put themselves in danger and more men, women and children will lose their lives.’…

Texas Police Sergeant Sues ‘Black Lives Matter’, Obama For Igniting Race War – Newser

A Texas police sergeant has filed a federal lawsuit against the leaders of the Black Lives Matter movement and President Obama, among others, for “igniting a race war.”

The Dallas Morning News reports Sgt. Demetrick Pennie, a 17-year veteran of law enforcement and president of the Dallas Fallen Officer Foundation, filed the lawsuit Friday seeking more than $500 million in damages.

In addition to Black Lives Matter and the president, the lawsuit names Hillary Clinton, George Soros, Rev. Al Sharpton, the New Black Panthers Party, and more.

The lawsuit claims they “have repeatedly incited their supporters and others to engage in threats of and attacks to cause serious bodily injury or death upon police officers.”

In a press release that makes mention of Colin Kaepernick refusing to stand for the “Pledge of Allegiance,” Pennie’s lawyer, Larry Klayman, accuses the named parties of “igniting a race war that will ultimately totally destroy the freedoms that our Founding Fathers bequeathed to us.”

He hopes the lawsuit will teach the country a lesson that law enforcement must be respected. “Sgt. Pennie and I feel duty-bound to put ourselves forward to seek an end to the incitement of violence against law enforcement,” Klayman says in the press release…

Clinton Foundation Spent Millions More On Travel Than Charitable Grants – Daily Caller

The Clinton Foundation spent significantly more money on travel costs than it did on charitable grants in 2014, the organization’s tax filings show.

The foundation spent $7.8 million on travel in 2014, while spending less than $5.2 million on charitable grants over the same time span, according to the foundation’s 2014 IRS filings.

More than $6 million of the $7.8 million spent on travel was marked as “Program service expenses.”

Approximately $566,000 of the travel money was marked as “Management and general expenses.” The remaining almost $1.3 million spent on travel was marked as “Fundraising expenses.”

As previously reported by The Daily Caller, the Clinton Foundation spent just 5.7 percent of its massive 2014 budget on charitable grants.

The less than $5.2 million spent on charitable grants in 2014 pales in comparison to the $34.8 million the foundation spent on salaries, compensation and employee benefits.

The lion’s share – $50.4 million – of the money spent by the Clinton Foundation in 2014 was marked as “other expenses.”

Donald Trump has unleashed an unprecedented deluge of small-dollar donations for the GOP, one that Republican Party elders have dreamed about finding for much of the past decade as they’ve watched a succession of Democrats – Barack Obama, Bernie Sanders and, to a lesser extent, Hillary Clinton – develop formidable fundraising operations $5, $10 and $20 at a time.

Trump has been actively soliciting cash for only a few months, but when he reveals his campaign’s financials later this week they will show he has crushed the total haul from small-dollar donors to the past two Republican nominees, John McCain and Mitt Romney – during the entirety of their campaigns.

All told, Trump is approaching, or may have already passed, $100 million from donors who have given $200 or less, according to an analysis of available Federal Election Commission filings, the campaign’s public statements and people familiar with his fundraising operation…

Obama Regime Paid Another $1.3 Billion To Iran; Can’t Say Exactly Who Got The Money – Washington Times

The State Department confirmed Monday that the Obama administration has paid Iran another $1.3 billion to settle a failed arms deal from 1979, but couldn’t describe who in the Iran government it paid, and couldn’t say what form that payment took – cash, check or otherwise.

The State Department also admitted it can’t guarantee that the Iran Revolutionary Guard Corps wouldn’t be able to get its hands on the money eventually.

“We can always hand it over to someone who can hand it over to the IRGC,” State Department spokesman Mark Toner told reporters. Many in the U.S. see the IRGC as being responsible for helping to finance terrorism.

The administration agreed to pay Iran $1.7 billion to compensate that country for its payment to the U.S. in 1979 for military equipment. That deal fell through after Iran’s government was overthrown, and the Obama administration has said it owes Iran this money, plus interest.

The first installment of the payment was a $400 million cash payment, which has drawn criticism from Republicans. They say it looks like a ransom payment to ensure the release of American hostages who Iran released this year.

When asked how the remaining $1.3 billion was paid, Toner said he didn’t know.

“I’ll try my best to get details about that,” he said. He said the problem there is that the government generally doesn’t want to reveal entities that help the U.S. make these payments, since the U.S. has no direct financial relationship with Iran…

Birthday Boy Brings 363 Pizzas To Louisiana Flood Victims – USA Today

The day before Carson Boutte’s 9th birthday Saturday, his mom asked what he wanted as a present.

He said he wanted lunch – but not for himself.

“He said, ‘Really, I know all the poor people whose houses flooded… what I would really like to do is bring them lunch,’ said his mom, Lanie Boutte. “I suggested sandwiches and chips, and he added cookies.”

Later that night, the thought of making maybe 500 lunches herself was overwhelming.

“So my husband suggested pizza,” she said. “I said I would spend $100 since that’s what I was going to spend on Carson’s present. I decided to post it on Facebook in case any of my family wanted to chip in, too.”

But by Saturday, her message to her family had traveled much further, and people from throughout Youngsville and nearby Lafayette, La., were volunteering to help. Domino’s offered a special rate for the food as long as those who wanted to help mentioned her name and paid for the order ahead of time.

“I had no idea it would blow up,” she said. Regional Vice President “John Richards from Domino’s matched the first 100 pizzas ordered…

“They were really awesome. Perfect strangers came out to help deliver, and I couldn’t believe it,” Lanie Boutte said. “It was unbelievable.:

Over Last 10 Months, Leftist Judges Have Blocked Deportation Of Nearly 100,000 Illegal Aliens – Fox News

Immigration judges around the country are denying the Department of Homeland Security’s attempts to deport illegal immigrants in record numbers, according to a new report.

Over the last 10 months, immigration judges opted against the department’s efforts to remove some 96,223 illegal immigrants, including criminals, according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, a Syracuse University-based nonprofit.

At this rate, TRAC estimates the number of illegal immigrants allowed to remain in the U.S. despite DHS attempts to remove them will surpass last year’s breaking number of 106,676. With the court’s protection, subjects can often remain indefinitely.

“It’s concerning to me that the immigration courts are becoming such a frequently used back-door route to green cards,” said Jessica Vaughan, director of Policy Studies for the Center for Immigration Studies, a Washington, DC-based research institute, noting these cases will be nearly 10 percent of the green cards approved in 2016.

“Many of them arrived illegally, and are being awarded legal status simply because they managed to stay a long time and have acquired family members here.”

One in four of the illegal immigrants allowed to stay in the country despite DHS efforts to remove them this year is from Mexico, TRAC reported.

Another 44 percent were from the three Central American countries – El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras – where vast numbers of unaccompanied minors and women with children have crossed the border to seek asylum…

Monmouth University Pollster Busted Manipulating Poll Data To Give Hillary Edge Over Trump – Conservative Treehouse

By now most CTH readers are familiar with the more notoriously biased polling manipulators. One of those is Patrick Murray from Monmouth University [@PollsterPatrick on Twitter].

If you want to know where his political affiliations lie, you only need to read his twitter feed. Murray has also been on Fox News with Bill O’Reilly several times selling his polling results to the unwitting audience.

Today, Monmouth via Patrick Murray presents a presidential poll of Ohio voters. The actual raw data (pdf available here – see pg, 6 and 7) showed Donald Trump with a lead in the result; however, Murray changed the data through weighting to show Hillary Clinton with a lead.

“GOUSAAMER114” pointed out the manipulation:

Monmouth just announced that Clinton leads Trump 43-39 in Ohio. But Pollster Patrick actually laid out what he did on pages 6 and 7 of the PDF.

He sampled 402 voters. In the unweighted sample, the split was 33.3R/29.3D/35.6I. With that split, Trump leads Clinton 41-39 in Ohio. But Pollster Patrick re-weighted it to a 29R/33D/37I split. Nothing else was re-weighted.

It’s obvious Murray didn’t expect to be called out on it – because when confronted with what he did, pollster Patrick Murray flat out lied.

You can do the math yourself and see that no “weighting” was done by “region, age, race, or gender” only by party ID.

Just as a reminder “weighting” is the term used for actually changing the raw data to reflect the “assumptions” the pollster puts into the anticipated turnout of the election…

Company Hiring ‘Gintern’ To Travel Around Europe And Drink Gin – Huffington Post

Hand in your notice and collect your P45, because there’s an opening available for what might be the best job ever.

A company is looking to pay somebody up to £20,000 to join their business and drink gin for six months.

ILoveGin is a monthly gin and tonic club which helps subscribers (read: hipsters) discover new craft gins and mixers.

The company is looking for a ‘Gintern’ to while away their days trying new gins and mixers. The lucky so-and-so will also be required to find new brands to work with, travel around Europe visiting distilleries, pair gins and just generally inspire the public with their gin-filled wisdom.

Sadly, it’s not a full-time position and only runs for six months – but we’re sure that by that time your liver will need a holiday anyway.

The job requires you to visit between one and two new gin companies each week. The rest of the time you’ll be able to work remotely from home – or in that trendy coffee shop you’ve been dying to check out.

“The gintern will get to travel around the UK and parts of Europe discovering new gins to work with and of course sampling them,” reads the site.

“The role is flexible so you can work from home but you will need to travel, one day you might be up in Edinburgh tasting a new craft gin, the next going to a launch event in London for a new tonic water.”…

Democrat Governor Of Virginia Restores Voting Rights Of 13,000 Felons – Washington Times

Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe announced Monday that he has individually restored the voting rights of 13,000 felons, a move undertaken after the state Supreme Court rescinded a prior executive action that restored the right to vote en masse to more than 200,000 former inmates.

The Democratic governor said individual restoration orders were mailed out to the thousands of people who had had their restored voter registrations cancelled by the state on account of the court ruling. He said additional restorations, which must be done on a case-by-case basis, will be prioritized by the order of the convicted felons’ release from prison.

“We will restore first those who have waited the longest,” Mr. McAuliffe said in an announcement made at the Civil Rights Memorial in Richmond.

Individuals eager to have their rights restored may also contact the governor’s office to request an expedited review.

A voter registration application will be included with each individual restoration order that is mailed out, Mr. McAuliffe said. The names of those who have their rights restored will be published on the 15th of each month.

Republican lawmakers filed a lawsuit in April challenging the governor’s order to restore voting rights en masse to convicted felons who have finished their prison or jail sentences as well as any supervised release. They argued that the move violated the state’s separation of powers by effectively suspending the Virginia’s ban on voting by felons and said that Mr. McAuliffe was ignoring decades of practice that made clear the governor could only restore such rights on a case-by-case basis…

Federal Court Blocks Obama’s Transgender Directive Nationwide – Breitbart

A federal judge has ruled in favor of 13 states against President Barack Obama’s directive that public schools must allow students and adults to enter whatever bathrooms or showers they choose, a policy imposing transgenderism on the nation’s schools.

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 forbids any employer from discriminating on the basis of sex. In 1972, Congress added Title IX, requiring all schools receiving federal funds – which includes every public school nationwide – to provide separate facilities of equal quality for both male and female students.

On May 13, 2016, the Obama administration’s Department of Education sent a letter to every school system in America, informing them that regulations implementing Title IX require all schools to allow all children and adults to use whichever bathroom and shower facilities they choose to identify with, regardless of whether that gender identity is the same as their biological sex. This corresponded with other federal pronouncements reiterating that all employers are subject to this same requirement under Title VII…

Bahrain’s Prince Got Audience With Clinton After Donating $32 Million To Her Foundation – Daily Caller

Newly released Department of State documents reveal that the Crown Prince of Bahrain was given an audience with then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton after he donated $32 million to her foundation.

The documents, released Monday by Judicial Watch, included emails between Clinton Foundation executive Doug Band and former Clinton State Department aide Huma Abedin, which appear to show that Abedin acted as a middleman between Clinton and her foundation’s donors.

Band and Abedin’s email exchanges show that Bahrain’s Crown Prince Salman had to go through the Clinton Foundation in order to set up a meeting with Clinton after the former Secretary of State declined to meet after official requests were made.

The first email, dated June 23, 2009, shows Band interceding on behalf of the Crown Prince, noting he is a “good friend of ours.” Abedin replied that same day noting that Salman had asked to see Clinton through “normal channels,” but it appears Clinton was not interested. A later email, dated June 25, 2009, from Abedin to Band offers Salman a 10 A.M. meeting with Clinton. Abedin said she “reached out [through] official channels” to secure the meeting.

Salman was a major donor to the Clinton Foundation, having pledged millions to the Clinton Global Initiative through the Crown Prince’s International Scholarship Program (CRISP). By 2010, he had given $32 million to the initiative.

Federal Reserve Paper Reveals Another $4 Trillion Needed To Fight Off Recession – Economic Collapse News

Budget deficits, subzero interest rates and money printing are solutions to combat an economic collapse, says a new Federal Reserve paper.

If the United States economy enters another disastrous recession, similar to what happened in 2008 and 2009, then the Federal Reserve may have to ignite a $4 trillion quantitative easing initiatives. This is the suggestion made in a brand new Fed staff working paper, authored by economist David Reifschneider.

The paper makes the case that historically low interest rates, the near $5 trillion balance sheet and the lackluster U.S. economic recovery could actually hinder the central bank’s use of conventional monetary policy tools in the event of another recession. In other words, the Fed would have a difficult time employing traditional tools to juice the national economy.

Here is what the Fed paper states:

“In the simulations. QE and forward guidance take 10yr yields down 225-300 bps depending on the starting point for fed funds and whether you do $2 trillion or $4 trillion for QE. But that is not going to work very well if by design fed funds and 10yr yields can’t go below zero. And if expected rates are already low then forward guidance does not have much room. Fed official will gave to keep a straight face while saying they we will keep rates at zero… forever.

“What makes it work is that QE and committing to low rates for longer gets the long rate down quickly and this compensates for the inability to take short rates down as far as you would want. In the unconstrained model, the maximum drop in short rates is almost 9 percentage points, almost twice as much as in the constrained model, but the QE/forward guidance lower takes (and keeps) long rates 75bps lower than when the Fed takes rates to zero and stops…

Child Suicide Bomber Behind “Heinous” Attack At Turkish Wedding That Killed At Least 51 – Zero Hedge

As the death toll from a deadly suicide bombing – which took place late on Saturday at a wedding party in the southern Turkish town of Gaziantep, near the southern border with Syria – rose to 51, with another 69 wounded of whom 17 were critical, Turkey’s president Erdogan issued a statement denouncing the “heinous” bombing and saying that IS was “the most likely perpetrator of the Gaziantep attack.” This was the deadliest attack in Turkey so far this year.

The remains of a suicide vest were recovered at the site, according to the state-run Anadolu Agency, with president Erdogan later adding that the perpetrator was a child between the ages of 12 and 14 year, whose bomb was remotely or self-detonated.

The bride and groom survived the attack, however the groom did suffer injuries, a local official said, as cited by Reuters. “The celebrations were coming to an end and there was a big explosion among people dancing,” 25-year-old Veli Can said, according to Reuters. “There was blood and body parts everywhere.”

Taking advantage of the attack to further his domestic agenda, Erdogan said there was “absolutely no difference” between the Islamic State, Kurdish rebels in the southeast of Turkey or Gulen’s supporters, saying they are all terrorist organizations. “These bloodthirsty organizations and the powers behind them have neither the will nor power to silence the calls to prayer, lower the flag, divide our motherland and break up our nation,” he said, as cited by AP.

Far-Left Huffington Post Now Calling For Corrupt Clinton Foundation To Be Shut Down – Breitbart

The Huffington Post, one of the world’s most trafficked news sites, featured a headline on Sunday calling for the closure of the embattled Clinton Foundation. The left-wing outlet’s front page banner linked to a New York Times article, which highlights, among other things, that Bill and Hillary Clinton’s billion dollar nonprofit has “accepted tens of millions of dollars from countries that the State Department – before, during and after Mrs. Clinton’s time as secretary – criticized for their records on sex discrimination and other human-rights issues.”

The Huffington Post is just the latest outlet to acknowledge that the explosive research, found first in Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large Peter Schweizer’s New York Times bestselling book Clinton Cash, has inspired a massive movement of journalists and political figures – on the left, right, and center – calling on the Clintons to dismantle their problematic nonprofit.

The Times piece shines the spotlight on “a deal involving the sale of American uranium holdings to a Russian state-owned enterprise” – another revelation first revealed in Clinton Cash – “…which involved major Clinton charitable backers from Canada…” as “another example of the foundation intersecting with Mrs. Clinton’s official role in the Obama administration.”

For weeks, the Democratic presidential candidate has been bombarded with questions about the apparent global nexus of influence peddling involving top aids to Clinton offering preferential treatment to million-dollar Clinton Foundation donors when she was the head of the State Department.

U.S.-Mexico Border Agents Stop Thousands Of Middle Eastern Illegals With Forged Papers – Zero Hedge

U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents working with Mexican immigration officials have found thousands of non-Hispanic illegal immigrants crossing Mexico’s southern border to make their way to Texas. As Breitbart details, the so-called “extra-continental” immigrants enter countries as far south as Brazil and make their way to the United States, often with forged travel documents.

“The reality is that the vast majority of the people that Mexico encounters [on its southern border] that are extra-continental will eventually end up on our border,” a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) official told Reuters this week. The Reuters article confirmed the Syrian nationals reported at the Mexican border with Laredo last year by Breitbart Texas’s Brandon Darby and Ildefonso Ortiz are part of this growing pattern of illegal migration.

Since that time, the federal government has been largely silent on the numbers of what they call “Special Interest Aliens” (SIA) being captured in Texas and other border states. DHS assistant secretary for international affairs Alan Bersin told a House committee in March,

“While many citizens of these countries migrate for economic reasons or because they are fleeing persecution in their home countries, this group may include migrants who are affiliated with foreign terrorist organizations, intelligence agencies, and organized criminal syndicates.”

The new information obtained by Reuters shows that 6,342 SIAs were apprehended at Mexico’s southern border. That number is up significantly from a 2015 total of 4,261 SIAs. Only 1,831 were reported for all of 2014 when Breitbart Texas’ Brandon Darby reported a leaked intelligence document from CBP official showing countries from all over the world were exploiting the porous southern border between the United States and Mexico. Most of those SIA tend to enter the U.S. through Texas…

In 6 Months Since Budget Deal: Debt Up More Than $1 Trillion – CNS
.

.
In the six months that have passed since then-retiring House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell cut a budget deal with President Barack Obama that suspended the legal limit on the federal debt until March 15, 2017, the federal debt has increased by more than $1 trillion.

The Senate passed “The Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015” with a vote held in the early morning hours of Friday, Oct. 30. Obama signed it on Monday, Nov. 2.

At the close business on Oct. 30, 2015, the total federal debt was $18,152,981,685,747.52. By the close of business on April 28, 2016 – the latest date for which the Treasury has published the number – the total federal debt was $19,186,207,744,589.55…

French Teacher At HISD School Doesn’t Speak French – KHOU

How do you teach a French class, if you don’t even speak French?

The I-Team discovered that’s exactly what is happening at the Houston Independent School District’s Energy Institute High School in the 1800 block of Sampson Street.

Sharonda White’s son Nathanial is a junior at the school.

“I thought it was a joke, I couldn’t believe this was happening,” White said.

We asked her son about his classroom experience.

I-Team: “Does your teacher speak French?”

Nathanial White: “No sir.”

I-Team: “Have you ever heard him speak a word of French?”

Nathanial White: “Bonjour, but everybody knows that.”

The teacher, Albert Moyer, said in a brief phone interview that the extent of his French education was just one year in high school.

So why was he hired? To replace Jean Cius, a certified French teacher for more than 25 years…

States can impose their own stiff penalties on illegal immigrants – or others – who steal someone’s identity in order to get a job, a federal appeals court ruled Monday, upholding Arizona’s strict law and dealing a setback to immigrant rights advocates.

The decision is yet another victory for Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and, more broadly, for Arizona, which has been a pioneer in trying to find ways to punish illegal immigrants, stepping into a void left by the Bush and Obama administrations…

Muslims Think Allah Sent Gift From Sky, Mortified When They Learn What It Is – Mad World News

Believing Allah had blessed them with a beautiful gift, local Muslims quickly took in an object which fishermen witnessed fall from the sky. After spreading the news of Allah’s gracious present all over social media, the Muslims were utterly mortified when viewers told them what it really is.

The internet was abuzz with confusion and hilarity after a community of Muslims on an island in Indonesia mistook a very intimate object as being a fallen angel. The local media was quick to jump on the story, which alleged that a life-size doll was one of Allah’s angels cast down to earth. However, the porcelain-skinned figurine disappointed her Muslim saviors when they found out she was merely someone’s misplaced sex toy.

Local media have reported the bizarre incident as the possibility of a divine miracle, although they include some skepticism. The “girl” was found on a Kalupapi beach in Banggai by Pardin, a local fisherman who claims to have heard the moment of impact. After announcing his find, outlets describe locals as being jubilant over what they believe is an “angel child.”…

Indian Teen Fatally Shoots Himself While Taking A Gun Selfie – Time

A teen in India shot and killed himself with his father’s gun while taking a selfie with the weapon. The 15-year-old was reportedly posing with the pistol on Friday when he pulled the trigger.

CNN reports the safety of was not on when the teen took the picture. He was taken to a hospital in India’s Punjab state, where he succumbed to his injuries on Sunday afternoon.

Police told AFP they had planned to speak to the boy if he had been declared medically fit, before his death was announced. “We think that part of the blame obviously goes to the father for not keeping his loaded gun under lock and key at their home,” officials said.

India has seen a number of accidental deaths involving selfies recently. According to AFP, a teen died earlier this year after trying to take a selfie in front of an oncoming train. CNN reports Mumbai has declared some areas “no-selfie zones” to prevent injuries…

Judicial Watch: Benghazi Email Trail Leads To White House – Legal Insurrection

Last week, I wrote about the emails uncovered by Judicial Watch related to Hillary’s clear knowledge, the night of the Benghazi attack, that it was a terror attack unrelated to the video she publicly blamed for starting a protest.

Emails involving the false video story lead directly to the White House and were a coordinated attempt to focus blame on the video rather than on Obama’s failed policies.

Judicial Watch reported in 2014:

Judicial Watch announced today that on April 18, 2014, it obtained 41 new Benghazi-related State Department documents. They include a newly declassified email showing then-White House Deputy Strategic Communications Adviser Ben Rhodes and other Obama administration public relations officials attempting to orchestrate a campaign to “reinforce” President Obama and to portray the Benghazi consulate terrorist attack as being “rooted in an Internet video, and not a failure of policy.” Other documents show that State Department officials initially described the incident as an “attack” and a possible kidnap attempt…

Tuesday’s Close: Dow Plummets Another 470 Points

New Month, Same Woes: Dow Plummets 470 Points – Daily Freeman

.

.
Stocks plunged again Tuesday, continuing a rocky ride for Wall Street, after an economic report out of China rekindled fears that the world’s second-largest economy is slowing more than previously anticipated.

The sell-off adds to what has been a difficult few weeks for U.S. and international markets. U.S. stocks just closed out their worst month in more than three years. Tuesday’s drop also dashed hopes that, after some relatively calm trading Friday and Monday, the stock market’s wild swings were coming to an end.

“This market remains fragile,” said Jack Ablin, chief investment officer at BMO Private Bank. “There’s nothing fundamentally wrong with the U.S. economy, but we are going through this correction process. We’ve got a rocky road ahead of us.”

Stocks started the day sharply lower and never recovered, with the Dow Jones industrial average falling as much as 548 points. No part of the market was spared. All 10 sectors of the Standard & Poor’s 500 index fell more than 2 percent. Just three stocks in the S&P 500 closed higher.

“Monday’s relatively peaceful markets are a distant memory as Chinese data and shares sparked another severe … reaction from the developed world,” said John Briggs, head of fixed income strategy at RBS.

In the end, the Dow lost 469.68 points, or 2.8 percent, to 16,058.35. The S&P 500 fell 58.33 points, or 3 percent, to 1,913.85 and the Nasdaq composite fell 140.40 points, 2.9 percent, to 4,636.10.

As it’s been for the last several weeks, the selling and problems started in Asia.

An official gauge of Chinese manufacturing fell to a three-year low last month, another sign of slowing growth in that country. The manufacturing index, which surveys purchasing managers at factories, dropped to a reading of 49.7 in August from 50.0 in July. A reading below 50 indicates a contraction.

China’s stocks sank on the news, with Shanghai Composite Index closing down 1.2 percent. The index has lost 38 percent of its value since hitting a peak in June.

The Chinese economy has been a focus for investors all summer, and the concerns have intensified in the last three weeks. China devalued its currency, the renminbi, in mid-August. Investors interpreted the move as a sign that China’s economy was not doing as well as previously reported.

Investors moved into traditional havens like bonds and gold Tuesday. Bond prices rose, pushing the yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note down to 2.16 percent from 2.22 percent on Monday. Gold rose $7.30, or 0.6 percent, to settle at $1,139.80 an ounce.

Faced with the possibility of slowing demand in China, the commodity markets once again took the brunt of the hit.

U.S. crude oil fell $3.79 to close at $45.41 a barrel in New York. Brent Crude, a benchmark for international oils used by many U.S. refineries, fell $4.59 to close at $49.56 in London.

Energy stocks were once again among the biggest decliners. Exxon Mobil fell nearly 4 percent and Chevron fell 2.5 percent. Exxon is down 22 percent this year, Chevron 30 percent.

In a sign of how battered energy companies have been this year, ConocoPhillips announced it was laying off 10 percent of its workers, roughly 1,800 workers, as a reaction this year’s plunge in oil prices.

Along with worries about China, speculation about whether or not the Federal Reserve will raise interest rates as soon as this month continues to weigh on markets. Traders say a lot hinges on the August jobs report, which will be released this Friday. Economists are forecasting that U.S. employers created 220,000 jobs in the month and that the unemployment rate fell to 5.2 percent.

The Federal Reserve meets September 16 and 17. Some economists are predicting that policymakers will be confident enough in the U.S. economic recovery to raise interest rates for the first time in almost a decade. While Fed officials are mostly focused on the U.S. economy, they cannot ignore problems in the global economy.

“China’s problems are totally a concern for the Fed,” said Tom di Galoma, head of rates trading at ED&F Man Capital. “With inflation remaining low here, I just don’t a reason why they would raise rates.”

Markets in Europe were broadly lower. Germany’s DAX fell 2.4 percent, France’s CAC-40 lost 2.4 percent and the U.K.’s FTSE 100 index declined 3 percent. Japan’s Nikkei 225 was also volatile, dropping 3.8 percent. The Hang Seng in Hong Kong sank 2.2 percent. Stocks also fell in South Korea and Australia.

The dollar fell to 119.68 yen from 121.20 yen on Monday. The euro rose to $1.1307 from $1.1225.

In other energy markets, wholesale gasoline fell 10.3 cents to close at $1.396 a gallon, heating oil fell 12.3 cents to close at $1.578 a gallon and natural gas rose 1.3 cents to close at $2.702 per 1,000 cubic feet.

Copper lost 4 cents to $2.30 a pound and palladium slumped $23.05 to $578.50 an ounce. The price of silver edged down four cents to $14.61 an ounce and platinum edged down $2.10 to $1,008.40 an ounce.

#WomenBetrayed: Over 50 Cities To Hold Rallies Tuesday To Defund Planned Parenthood

#WomenBetrayed: Over 50 Cities To Hold Rallies Against Planned Parenthood – Big Government

.

.
On Tuesday pro-lifers in more than 50 cities – and counting – will be rallying against Planned Parenthood under the banner of #WomenBetrayed in response to the gruesome undercover investigative videos released by the Center for Medical Progress over the past two weeks.

Two Planned Parenthood senior medical officials were exposed as they explained how the taxpayer funded organization performs abortions in such a way as to harvest aborted babies’ body parts to sell them to biomedical companies.

National pro-life group Students for Life of America (SFLA) and its partner organization Pro-Life Future have launched the #WomenBetrayed initiative which urges citizens across the nation to rally to demand their states investigate, prosecute and defund Planned Parenthood.

According to a press release, SFLA chose the title of the initiative, #WomenBetrayed, because “Planned Parenthood has betrayed the very patients – women and their children – who they claim to care about and have compassion for.”

“Women are supposed to help and support other women – not use them for profit and sell the body parts of their prenatal children,” said Kristan Hawkins, SFLA president. “Planned Parenthood gets a half a billion a year in taxpayer dollars. We are calling on every state and federal government to cut off those funds immediately and investigate Planned Parenthood for possible wrongdoing.”

In the first video from the Center for Medical Progress, Planned Parenthood senior medical director Dr. Deborah Nucatola discussed how she “crushes” certain parts of the baby in order to get desired organs intact to be available for sale to biomedical companies. A second video exposes another Planned Parenthood senior medical adviser appearing to negotiate the price of selling baby body parts to undercover citizen journalists she believed to be biomedical entrepreneurs.

According to SFLA, the content of these latest videos is “only the latest infraction in a long list of horrific behaviors, including the covering up of statutory rape, the overbilling taxpayers, the aiding and abetting sex traffickers, scheduling sex-selective abortions and accepting money to abort African American children.”

“Planned Parenthood had a net profit of $127 million in 2013-2014,” Hawkins continued. “Let them fundraise and support themselves like any other business in the country that isn’t deceiving women and making money off of taking the lives of the most vulnerable and selling their body parts.”

Brendan O’Morchoe, Director of Pro-Life Future, said the #WomenBetrayed initiative is proving successful.

“Within days of announcing the national rallies to our supporters, we already have over 50 cities who will be hosting a local rally to defund Planned Parenthood,” he said. “The outrage against taxpayer dollars funding Planned Parenthood is palpable. This is the time to defund them and Americans are going to make their voices heard on July 28.”

Ben Carson To Headline Washington D.C. #WomenBetrayed Rally To Defund Planned Parenthood – Big Government

.

.
Retired pediatric neurosurgeon and 2016 GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson will be the featured speaker Tuesday at the Washington, D.C. #WomenBetrayed rally to defund Planned Parenthood.

To date, some 60 cities are confirmed as holding rallies – all of which have been coordinated by the nation’s largest organization of pro-life millennials, Students for Life of America (SFLA) and its partner organization Pro-Life Future. The rallies urge citizens across the nation to demand their states investigate, prosecute and defund Planned Parenthood.

The Washington, D.C. rally will be held on Capitol Hill.

In addition to Carson, other speakers scheduled include Sen. James Lankford (R-OK), Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), Rep. Chris Smith, Rep. Andy Harris (R-MD), Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-KS), and other national pro-life leaders. Blackburn led 135 Republican House members in a formal request to U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch for an immediate investigation into Planned Parenthood’s practices of harvesting the body parts of aborted babies for sale to biomedical companies.

In an email to SFLA supporters, president Kristan Hawkins invited them to participate in their local rallies, most of which will be held at 12:00 noon local time in the cities located at the #WomenBetrayed website.

“It’s time to stop the more than $500 million taxpayer dollars that flow to the abortion Goliath every year,” Hawkins said. “It’s the time for us to reach their would-be clients first to tell them the truth about Planned Parenthood’s motives. It’s time to topple the first domino in our mission to end abortion in America.”

Fighting Back… Obamacare Returns To Court Tuesday

Obamacare Back In Court Tuesday – Daily Caller

Obamacare is in serious danger. After weathering a Supreme Court challenge that threatened to gut the law by striking down the individual mandate, major pillars – the business penalty, the individual penalty, and the generous health-care subsidies that make the exchange plans affordable – are being challenged in court, with at least two lawsuits potentially dealing mortal wounds before New Year’s Day.

.

The chink in the armor is that Obamacare subsidizes plans for people “enrolled in through an exchange established by the state under section 1311 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act,” but in a move Democrats didn’t expect, 34 states didn’t establish an exchange. And if people aren’t able to access these subsidies, they can’t be penalized.

In addition, businesses where the employees are unable to access these subsidies also can’t be penalized. Two hundred million Americans live in those 34 states – a hefty chunk of the U.S. population.

“This is far more egregious than any other step the president has taken to ignore or rewrite federal law,” Cato Institute healthy policy studies director Michael Cannon told The Daily Caller, “because here, what the president is doing is trying to borrow and spend hundreds of billions of dollars that Congress expressly prohibits him from touching, from spending.”

But why would Democrats include this self-destruct mechanism in the law? As “an incentive for states to act,” Cannon explained – one that wasn’t fine-tuned when the Democrats scrambled to jam Obamacare through after Republican Scott Brown’s special election upset the balance in the chamber. “The incentive they created is creating an exchange,” Cannon said. “They never expected it to become law. They never expected, even if it became law, for states to refuse to set up exchanges.”

There are currently four suits pending regarding illegal taxation under Obamacare, with plaintiffs ranging from individual taxpayers to the states of Oklahoma and Indiana. On Tuesday, a D.C. court will hear oral argument for Halbig v. Sebelius, a case named for plaintiff Jacqueline Halbig, a resident of Virginia who runs her own one-woman consulting firm, and Department of Health and Human Services Director Kathleen Sebelius.

Two months ago, the judge declined to grant a preliminary injunction against Obamacare but agreed to hear the merits of the case. The Obama administration had unsuccessfully attempted to derail the suit by arguing that it was too speculative.

Another case with traction is King v. Sebelius, which is unfolding in Virginia. Both the judge in D.C. and the judge in Richmond could issue a ruling before Jan. 1 – potentially halting the subsidies and penalties from kicking in. This would be a public disaster for the administration.

That’s because the administration put a lot of effort into making sure that potential enrollees couldn’t log online and see unsubsidized plans, asking HealthCare.gov users for things like their income and household size in an attempt to figure out the taxpayer-funded subsidies they qualified for.

“The administration didn’t want people to see the unsubsidized premiums – they’d freak out,” Cannon told TheDC. “So if those subsidies are in fact illegal and a federal judge strikes them down, then never mind the people freaking out before they realize they’re eligible for subsidies – they’re not going to be eligible at all and they’re going to flee the exchanges; and the administration is very afraid it. They didn’t want these folks to get spooked.”
