Border Agent: ‘Miraculous’ Drop In Illegal Immigration Under Trump – Daily Caller

National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd said that agents have seen a “miraculous” drop in the number of migrants seeking to cross the border illegally thanks to President Donald Trump.

The significant reduction of illegal border crossings from Mexico to the United States is unprecedented, Judd told C-SPAN on Monday. Judd is the head of a union representing U.S. Border Patrol agents

“What we’ve seen is nothing short of miraculous,” he said. “If you look at the rhetoric that President Trump has given, it’s caused the number of illegal border crossers to go down, something that we’ve never seen in history at the Border Patrol.”

“We’ve never seen such a drop that we currently have.”

In June, the U.S. Customs and Boarder Protection reported a 53 percent decrease in the number of apprehensions and inadmissible persons along the Southwest border compared to last year. It says the drop in apprehensions has a correlation with those attempting to cross illegally…

Reebok Mocks Trump’s Compliments Of Macron’s Wife – The Hill

The sports brand Reebok is mocking President Trump’s compliments of French President Emmanuel Macron’s wife that were made during Trump’s visit to France last week.

The sports apparel company posted a graphic to their Twitter account on Friday.

In a chart, labeled “when is it appropriate to say, ‘You’re in such good shape…beautiful,’” several scenarios are listed, including “Are you a world leader greeting the spouse of a head of state?” and “Are you in an elevator with a woman?” In response, the company advises: “No.”

“Did you just find a forgotten action figure from your youth, unscathed after decades, in your parents’ basement?” is the only scenario on the chart that is labeled as appropriate for Trump’s quote.

Video posted to Macron’s Facebook page Thursday caught Trump complimenting France’s first lady Brigitte Macron as the two world leaders and their wives greeted each other following a tour…

Facebook: Muslim’s Rape Threat Against Ex-Muslim Doesn’t Violate “Community Standards” – Washington Standard

Maryam Namazie is a Marxist, which means that her opposition to Islam is just a matter of wanting to exchange one form of violent authoritarianism for another. She is a vicious Jew-hater who has spread “Palestinian” jihad propaganda.

Namazie is also a liar, as she claims here that Pamela Geller and I have accused her of practicing taqiyya, and she has published an entire report defaming and libeling us in numerous ways.

None of this, of course, means that she should be raped, or that rape threats against her should go unnoticed. Facebook’s refusal to act on this is yet another example of its determination to implement Sharia blasphemy norms and silence all criticism of Islam, as Facebook’s Vice President recently assured Pakistani authorities that it would do…

Woman Accused Of Lying About Rape Claims Psychiatric Illness – Fox News

A former university student accused of lying about being raped by two university football players is seeking to have the charges against her dismissed.

The Connecticut Post reports former Sacred Heart University student Nikki Yovino filed an application in court Friday saying she’s suffering from a psychiatric disability.

The 19-year-old South Setauket, New York, native will undergo a psychological evaluation. A judge will decide whether she qualifies for a pretrial diversionary program. If she qualifies and completes that program she could have the charges dismissed.

Prosecutors say they’ll contest Yovino’s request. They previously offered her a plea deal with a two-year prison sentence.

Yovino accused two Sacred Heart football players of sexually assaulting her during an October party. The players said the sex was consensual. Police say Yovino later admitted making up the allegations…

Teen Who Blasted ‘Fuck Tha Police’ At Cop’s Funeral Booted From Apartment – New York Post

A cop-hating Bronx teen has been kicked out of his apartment for repeatedly blasting the rap song “Fuck Tha Police” from the window as thousands of NYPD cops gathered to mourn a slain colleague, the building’s superintendent said Friday.

Super Danny Morales said he ordered a tenant to get rid of Julien Rodriguez, 16, and his older sister, who had been staying in the tenant’s third-floor pad.

“I called him and told him he needs to take care of this right away,” Morales said.

“I told him it’s disrespectful and they can’t be doing this. The police lost a family member. We all need to come together and respect that.”

Morales said he was especially offended because his nephew, Saul Quiles-Morales, is a cop assigned to the nearby 40th Precinct.

“I wouldn’t want to see him lying in a box also. We need to respect the police,” he added.

The tenant, who identified himself only as “Jesus,” insisted the incident wasn’t his fault and called Rodriguez and his sister “lowlifes.”…

Anti-Trump Group Protesting Against NRA Protected By Armed Guards – American Mirror

Do as they say, not as they do.

A group of women opposed to President Trump marched against the NRA through the streets of Washington on Saturday. They walked 18 miles from the pro-liberty group’s headquarters in Virginia to the Department of Justice in downtown DC.

The Women’s March, which first came on the scene the day after Trump’s inauguration, organized the protest yesterday. They demanded the protection of “civil rights of Black gun owners,” something the NRA defends.

The protest’s notable leftist celebrity was Linda Sarsour, the Muslim woman who defends Sharia law and once said she wanted to take the vaginas away from women with whom she disagreed politically.

Advisors To Socialist Pope Francis Bash American Christians In Bigoted Screed – Breitbart

In a peculiar, rambling essay, papal adviser Father Antonio Spadaro SJ has caricatured white southern evangelicals as well as conservative American Catholics as ignorant, theocratic, Manichean, war-mongering fanatics anxiously awaiting the apocalypse.

It is “these religious groups that are composed mainly of whites from the deep American South” that push conflicts and justify belligerence, while favoring the Old Testament “rather than be guided by the incisive look, full of love, of Jesus in the Gospels.”

The article appeared in both Italian and English in the Vatican-vetted journal La Civiltà Cattolica, of which Father Spadaro is editor-in-chief. In it, the Jesuit priest says that U.S. Evangelicals and Catholics have engaged in “an ecumenism of conflict” that seeks to advance “a theocratic type of state.”

Spadaro, a friend and counselor of Pope Francis, was assisted in drafting the essay by an Argentinian Presbyterian minister, Marcelo Figueroa, an old friend of the Pope’s who was hand-picked by the pontiff as editor-in-chief of the Argentinean edition of the Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano…

Leftist Seattle Councilman Objects To Hosing Excrement-Covered Sidewalks Because It’s ‘Racist’ – Heatstreet

Nevada Declares State Of Emergency Over Legal Marijuana Shortage – Circa

Nevada has declared a state of emergency over a shortage of legal marijuana.

Since recreational use of weed became legal in the state on July 1, Nevada’s 47 retail dispensaries have struggled to meet the high demand.

Nevada’s state Department of Taxation warned that the “nascent industry could grind to a halt” in declaring a state of emergency last week.

The state dispensary association estimated that customers in the state bought between $3 million and $5 million worth of pot in the first four days of it becoming legal.

Gov. Brian Sandoval, who at first did not support the legalization of weed, endorsed emergency regulations to increase marijuana supply.

Sandoval is supporting new reform policies to speed up the review process for cannabis companies’ transport licenses. These reforms were created by Deonne E. Contine, executive director of Nevada Department of Taxation…

Leftist Judge Forces Prison To Provide Hormone Therapy To “Transgender” Dude Named Sparkles Wilson – Daily Caller

A federal judge has ordered officials at a taxpayer-funded county prison in Pennsylvania to provide – and foot the cost for – hormone therapy treatment for transgender inmate Steven Fritz, a man who longs to become a woman and who prefers to go by the name Sparkles Wilson.

Judge Robert D. Mariani issued the order late Friday, reports The Scranton Times-Tribune.

Mariani’s ruling comes after Fritz had filed a $1 million-plus lawsuit alleging that he will suffer physical harm and mental trauma if he does not continue receiving regular estrogen infusions.

A prison doctor, Edward Zaloga, had challenged the judge’s order because, Zalonga said, side effects of the hormone treatments could harm Fritz.

However, Judge Mariani, an Obama appointee, overruled the doctor’s concerns. In his emergency order, Mariani held that Zalonga had presented insufficient evidence to support the claim that Fritz might be harmed…

Conservatives Hail Supreme Court Decision In Latest Religious Liberty Case – CNS

The Department had a strict and express policy of denying grants to any applicant owned or controlled by a church, sect, or other religious entity, and when it ultimately awarded 14 grants as part of the 2012 program, the Trinity Lutheran Church Child Learning Center was not among the group.

Trinity Lutheran sued in federal court, alleging that the Department’s failure to approve its application violated the Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment.

Arkansas had resisted, arguing that the birth certificate was a record of parentage for the child, rather than a document about the marriage.

But the high court rejected that argument, saying that in situations where a child is conceived from an anonymous sperm donor, the mother’s husband is still required to be listed.

USSC Reinstates Key Parts Of Trump Travel Ban, Schedules October Hearing On The Rest – Fox News

The court’s decision means the justices will now wade into the biggest legal controversy of the Trump administration – Trump’s order temporarily restricting travel, which even Trump has termed a “travel ban.”

“An American individual or entity that has a bona fide relationship with a particular person seeking to enter the country as a refugee can legitimately claim concrete hardship if that person is excluded,” the Court wrote. “As to these individuals and entities, we do not disturb the injunction.

New York Times Shills For Al Jazeera – Clarion Project

The demand – among 12 other ultimata issued by the Gulf States – is due to Qatar’s support of terrorism and Al Jazeera’s role in that project.

Epic: Homeowners’ Response To Government Request For Access To Property Goes Viral – I Have The Truth

One couple’s tongue-in-cheek reply to a state agency’s request for access to their property has gone viral across social media.

Larry and Amanda Anderson received the formal request from the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife last month. The reason given by the state for requesting access to “survey the creek on your property” was to look for the “foothill yellow-legged frog.”

According to the letter, ODFW is concerned with declining numbers of the frog’s population.

After considering the request, late last week the Andersons sent a detailed reply to the state agency.

The letter does grant permission for the state to enter the property and survey the creek. However, it also included a litany of requirements needed to be completed (permits, vehicle inspections, stamps, etc.) before any representative would be allowed on the property.

Additionally, once the permits, stamps and inspections had been satisfied, the letter went on to list the only kind of “survey gear” allowed to be used in capturing the frogs, mandating the nets be “made of 100% organic cotton netting with no longer than an 18″ handle.”…

Another Muslim hoax in what is now an epidemic of faked hated crimes. More interesting is the enemedia’s silence on the faux hate crime wave designed to indict, smear and defame the intended victims of jihadi wars.

Will this Muslima face 40 years in prison, as did this Texas man for the same “hate crime,” or are we forced to treat this sacred cow differently? Faked hate crimesters should suffer as egregious a penalty as real hate crime perpetrators.

These faked anti-Muslim hate crimes, which far outnumber actual anti-Muslim hate crimes, do enormous damage. They defame and libel good people. They give Muslim terror-tied groups such as unindicted co-conspirator CAIR weapons to club elected officials into some legislative action.

I am sure that terror-tied CAIR and their operatives at the FBI will count this as a “hate crime” “mosque attack,” even though a Muslim set it…

They’re Wrong About Everything – Matthew Continetti

Events are turning me into a radical skeptic. I no longer believe what I read, unless what I am reading is an empirically verifiable account of the past. I no longer have confidence in polls, because it has become impossible to separate the signal from the noise. What I have heard from the media and political class over the last several years has been so spectacularly proven wrong by events, again and again, that I sometimes wonder why I continue to read two newspapers a day before spending time following journalists on Twitter. Habit, I guess. A sense of professional obligation, I suppose. Maybe boredom.

The fact is that almost the entirety of what one reads in the paper or on the web is speculation. The writer isn’t telling you what happened, he is offering an interpretation of what happened, or offering a projection of the future…

Neil Gorsuch’s First SCOTUS Dissent Has Conservatives Cheering – Bizpac Review

When newly-minted Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch joined originalist stalwart Clarence Thomas in a 7-2 dissent that reads like something the founders would have written, any conservatives who might have been concerned about Gorsuch somehow being another David Souter probably stopped worrying.

Indeed, Gorsuch’s first dissent, penned almost two weeks after drafting his first majority opinion, offers fascinating insight into the new justice’s thought processes (hint: It’s a lot more Scalia than Souter).

The case, Perry v. Merit Systems Protection Board, dealt with the process behind the appeal of a federal census worker’s employment dispute.

The majority opinion overturned the D.C. Circuit Court’s ruling, which was against the petitioner. But Gorsuch and Thomas actually believe it’s not the court’s job to make laws. What a concept!…

German Police Raid Homes Of 36 People Accused Of ‘Hateful’ Social Media Posts – WorldNetDaily

German police recently raided the homes of 36 people accused of writing “hateful” posts on social media, with most of the raids targeting right-wing individuals.

Thirty-three of the raids concerned “politically motivated right-wing incitement,” while only two raids targeted people accused of left-wing extremist content. One of the raids targeted someone accused of making threats based on sexual orientation, according to the New York Times.

“Our free society must not allow a climate of fear, threat, criminal violence and violence either on the street or on the internet,” said Holger Münch, president of the Federal Criminal Police Office.

According to German law, social media users face up to five years in prison for “inciting racial hatred,” even if no physical violence is committed.

“Meanwhile, Islamists mow down people with cars and trucks at Christmas markets in Germany,” said Paul Nehlen, who recently announced he will challenge House Speaker Paul Ryan in Wisconsin’s 1st congressional district primary in 2018…

Barclays Bank, Four Former Top Executives Charged With Fraud Over Fundraising With Qatari Investors – Financial Gazette

Barclays and four former senior executives are facing criminal charges relating to investments sought from Qatar in 2008. The emergency funds raised by Barclays at the height of the financial crisis allowed it to avoid a government bailout when its rivals – Lloyds and Royal Bank of Scotland – took state rescue packages.

After a five-year investigation, the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) has announced Barclays has been charged with two counts of conspiracy to commit fraud and the provision of unlawful financial assistance.

The charges centre on the bank’s move to raise cash from Qatari investors Qatar Holding and Challenger Universal in June and October 2008. They also relate to a $3bn (£2.4bn) loan made available to the State of Qatar in November of that year.

The bank’s former chief executive John Varley and another senior executive Roger Jenkins have been with conspiracy to commit fraud by false representation in relation to a first round of investment in June 2008…

House Conservatives Send Senate List Of ‘Must Haves’ For Healthcare Bill – Washington Examiner

A House conservative group formerly chaired by Vice President Mike Pence plans to issue their healthcare demands to Republican senators amid growing reports that the bill has moved further to the left.

The 151-member Republican Study Committee is sending a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., detailing what the group’s members want to see in a bill repealing and replacing Obamacare, raising new questions about whether Republicans will be able to come together to pass the legislation.

Republican Study Committee members say in the draft letter they would like to see many conservative policies in the House-passed American Health Care Act preserved in whatever Obamacare bill emerges from the Senate.

This includes phasing out Medicaid expansion beginning in 2020. They also want to keep the repeal of all taxes under Obamacare, an area where Republicans broadly agree but raises questions about how to fund the healthcare law…

Mostly Useless GOP Considers Canceling August Recess To Salvage Agenda – The Hill

Alarmed by the stalemate on healthcare reform, lack of progress on tax reform and appropriations bills that are far behind schedule, Republican lawmakers across Congress are increasingly willing to consider canceling the month-long August recess.

Senate Republican negotiators reported that they are not close to a deal on healthcare reform and that scheduling a vote by July 4, which Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has pushed, is likely unrealistic.

That impasse has held up work on a budget resolution, which is necessary to move tax reform and the annual appropriations bills.

Once Republicans vote on a budget resolution for 2018, it will wipe out the special vehicle they plan to use to pass healthcare reform with a simple majority vote – a vehicle that was set up by the budget resolution for 2017.

Lawmakers calculate there are only 45 legislative days until the end of the fiscal year, on Sept. 30…

Or maybe you were intrigued by an unusual draft item (“Hmm, a blueberry shandy, how delightful”) but after ordering a pint, discovered it tasted like cough syrup. Or perhaps your bartender does one of those “set the pint glass under the tap and let it fill/overflow before handing it to you with beer and foam dripping down the side without wiping it off” maneuvers.

Russia Surrounded: NATO Starts War Games As Troops Swoop On Putin’s Enclave – Daily Express

Russia was surrounded on all sides by NATO forces yesterday as America and Britain kicked off a summer of war games in Kaliningrad, amid World War III fears.

President Vladimir Putin’s Baltic fleet is based in the region and it was reported that the joint UK/US show of strength angered him.

Mr Putin’s forces in the region include short range ballistic missiles with a 300-mile reach.

However, in a show of strength, the US deployed a historic amount of its nuclear bombers – including B-52, B1 and the B-2 stealth aircrafts.

After Seattle’s Gun Tax: Lost Jobs, Little Revenue, More Violent Crime – Legal Insurrection

Although Seattle’s gun tax was supposed to bring in $300,000 to $500,000, it’s brought in less than $200,000. The money was supposed to be used to “study” gun violence and to somehow lower the cost to taxpayers for gun violence.

It didn’t turn out that way, and Seattle ended up forking out taxpayer money from the general fund for the “study.” Meanwhile, small business owners have shuttered their Seattle gun shops, causing employees to lose their jobs. Furthermore, Seattle police report that gun violence has sharply increased.

The tax took effect in January of 2016, and includes a $25 tax on each gun purchase and up to 5 cents per round of ammunition.

The Seattle Times reported last April:

England Is Drunk On PC Kool-Aid – Renee Garfinkel

Britain has lost its way, lost its moral compass… and lost its mind.

In the midst of a season of repeated and deadly terror attacks, the British decided to permit Hezbollah, Iran’s proxy and international terrorist organization, to march in a parade through London on Sunday.

The parade marked Al Quds Day, an occasion invented by the late Ayatollah Khomeini to call for Israel to be destroyed. In his words, “any freedom lover and justice seeker in the world must do its best for the annihilation of the Zionist regime.”

Make no mistake, there is nothing pro-Palestinian or pro-Arab about Hezbollah. It is heavily engaged in the ongoing killing of Arab citizens of Syria in support of the brutal Assad regime. Hezbollah has been spreading terror around the world for decades. As far back as 1983, Hezbollah murdered 220 U.S. Marines and 21 other service personnel with a truck bomb at a U.S. Marine compound in Beirut, Lebanon.

Florida Woman Allegedly Stole More Than $93,000 In Gainesville City Funds To Pay For Brazilian Butt Lift – Breitbart

Obama-Era FCC Caught Red-Handed Giving Preferential Treatment To Leftist Groups – Daily Caller

Details of the highly friendly support were first described by then-The Washington Post’s Nancy Scola, who referred to it as an “unusual collaboration” in an in-depth report on the FCC’s filing system.

“Fearless Girl” was commissioned by Boston-based financial services firm State Street Global Advisers, and was placed directly in front of the iconic “Charging Bull” statue on Wall Street. The “Fearless Girl” has been praised by politicians and activists as a symbol of feminism.

That policy included the commuting of the prison sentence of a terrorist bomber named Oscar Lopez Rivera, whose group, Fuerzas Armadas de Liberaciَn Nacional (FALN) – translated: Armed Forces of National Liberation – bombed its way into the history books in the 1970s.

Rivera was selected to be the de facto grand marshal of the 2017 Puerto Rican Day Parade scheduled for June 11. The selection has infuriated police officers throughout the nation including the NYPD Hispanic Society.

The violence-prone FALN used terrorist tactics in the hopes of making Puerto Rico – a U.S. territory – a free nation so they could set up their own Marxist government. It’s believed the Democratic Party’s affection for the FALN has more to do with its ideology than with poverty or civil-rights on that Caribbean Island…

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is hiring! There’s a vacancy in his administration for a computer programmer analyst, in the Department of Design and Construction.

Schwartz is also the president of the Manhattan Young Democrats and the downstate region vice president of the New York State Young Democrats.

Mississippi Suspect Kills Eight, Including Deputy Sheriff, In House-To-House Rampage – Breitbart

Eight individuals were killed – including a deputy sheriff – during a house-to-house rampage in Mississippi on Saturday night.

The suspect, 35-year-old Willie Cory Godbolt, was arrested after allegedly “holding a 16-year-old hostage.”

The Daily Leader reports that Godbolt was “captured this morning shortly before 7 a.m. at Super Jack’s at East Lincoln Road and Hwy. 84.”

Lincoln County Sheriff Steve Rushing provided a few details tied to the attacks:

It appears the deputy responded to a call at Lee Drive of a resident wanting the suspect removed from the property. Rushing said the deputy and three others were killed there. Two more people were shot and killed at a residence on Coopertown Road, he said. A third crime scene was located near where Godbolt was captured.

FBI Warned MI5 In January That The Manchester Bomber Was Planning An Attack On Britain – Daily Mail

UK security chiefs were warned in January that Salman Abedi was planning an attack in Britain, it was claimed last night.

According to a security source, the FBI told MI5 that Abedi was part of a North African Islamic State cell plotting to strike a political target in the UK.

The information came from a US investigation into Abedi and his links to terrorist groups in Libya. The Mail on Sunday has also been told that US security services put him on a terror watch list – used by agents to identify key suspects – in 2016.

James Comey Acted On Russian Intelligence He Knew To Be Fake – The Hill

Former FBI Director James Comey acted on key information created by Russian intelligence in the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails that he knew to be fake, CNN reported Friday.

Unidentified officials told CNN that Comey feared that if the information became public it would undermine the investigation as well as the Justice Department itself.

The false information reportedly spurred the then-FBI chief to publicly declare last summer that the investigation into Clinton’s emails was over. Meanwhile, Comey also said that the former Democratic presidential nominee had been “extremely careless” in her handling of classified information.

The officials cited by CNN said Comey feared if the information was not made public – and Russia released the information – law enforcement would be unable to discredit it without undermining intelligence methods and sources.

Declassified Memos Show FBI Illegally Shared Spy Data On Americans With Private Parties – Circa

The FBI has illegally shared raw intelligence about Americans with unauthorized third parties and violated other constitutional privacy protections, according to newly declassified government documents that undercut the bureau’s public assurances about how carefully it handles warrantless spy data to avoid abuses or leaks.

In his final congressional testimony before he was fired by President Trump this month, then-FBI Director James Comey unequivocally told lawmakers his agency used sensitive espionage data gathered about Americans without a warrant only when it was “lawfully collected, carefully overseen and checked.”

Once-top secret U.S. intelligence community memos reviewed by Circa tell a different story, citing instances of “disregard” for rules, inadequate training and “deficient” oversight and even one case of deliberately sharing spy data with a forbidden party.

For instance, a ruling declassified this month by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) chronicles nearly 10 pages listing hundreds of violations of the FBI’s privacy-protecting minimization rules that occurred on Comey’s watch…

Minnesota Muslim Released Despite Grenade, Bomb Materials Found – WorldNetDaily

The Manchester suicide bomber was reported to authorities repeatedly over a period of five years, as British citizens pointed out his radical activities. Nothing was done.

It mirrors the script of previous jihadists who struck at San Bernardino, Orlando, Fort Hood, the Boston Marathon, London, Nice and many other places in the U.S. and Europe over the last three years.

“We knew of this man,” police said, but they were either unwilling or unable to monitor the suspect, let alone arrest him. Now there are signs that two Muslim men in Minneapolis may be up to their eyeballs in jihadist activity.

North Korea’s Latest Missile Launch Suggests Progress Toward ICBM: Experts – Reuters

North Korea’s successful missile test-launch signals major advances in developing an intercontinental ballistic missile, such as mastery of re-entry technology and better engine performance key to targeting the United States, experts say.

The isolated country has been developing a long-range missile capable of striking the mainland United States mounted with a nuclear warhead. That would require a flight of 8,000 km (4,800 miles) or more and technology to ensure a warhead’s stable re-entry into the atmosphere.

The North’s official KCNA news agency said the new strategic ballistic missile named Hwasong-12, fired on Sunday at the highest angle to avoid affecting neighboring countries’ security, flew 787 km (489 miles) on a trajectory reaching an altitude of 2,111.5 km (1,312 miles).

The details reported by KCNA were largely consistent with South Korean and Japanese assessments that it flew further and higher than an intermediate-range missile (IRBM) tested in February from the same region, northwest of Pyongyang…

DNC Workers Sue Party For Receiving Sub-Minimum Wages, No Overtime – Washington Free Beacon

Dozens of field workers have filed a class action lawsuit against the Democratic National Committee, claiming the party that is pushing employers to pay a $15 minimum wage and more in overtime failed to pay overtime and minimum wages to its own employees.

Justin Swidler, the attorney representing the field workers, argued the Democratic Party failed to pay workers a minimum wage and denied them overtime compensation. Swidler “says the lawsuit seeks ‘fair pay for fair work,’ and holding the Democratic Party to the very ideals that it embraces,” according to CBS Philly.

The 2016 Democratic platform pushed for a $15-per-hour minimum wage, a nearly $8 increase from the current minimum, and promised to defend an Obama-era regulation forcing employers to pay a higher rate to employees for working more than 40 hours.

Some of the Democrats’ workers put in 80-90 hours per week, according to Swidler, and got only $3,000 per month in compensation. “They got paid a flat salary of $3,000 a month, which isn’t even minimum wage for some of the hours that they were working,” Swidler said…

New Variant Of ‘Ransomware’ Begins To Spread – Zero Hedge

Governments and companies around the world began to gain the upper hand against the first wave of the unrivaled global cyberattack this morning.

More than 200,000 computers in at least 150 countries have so far been infected, according to Europol, the European Union’s law enforcement agency. The U.K.’s National Cyber Security Centre said new cases of so-called ransomware are possible “at a significant scale.”

“For now, it does not look like the number of infected computers is increasing,” said a Europol spokesman. “We will get a decryption tool eventually, but for the moment, it’s still a live threat and we’re still in disaster recovery mode.”

The initial attack was stifled when a security researcher disabled a key mechanism used by the worm to spread, but experts warned the hackers were likely to mount a second attack because so many users of personal computers with Microsoft operating systems couldn’t or didn’t download a security patch released in March that Microsoft had labeled “critical.”…

Maxine Waters Has Passed Just 3 Bills In Last 27 Years, Been Named ‘Most Corrupt’ Member Of Congress 4 Times – U.S. Herald

While the 78-year-old Waters’ early history could serve as inspirational as one of 13 children raised by a single mother in Missouri who eventually graduated from college and worked as a teacher’s aide, her move into politics, beginning in 1977, started her on a path to personal riches that had less to do with public service than public rabble rousing in the service of stirring racial division…

Detroit School To Hold ‘Muslim Girls Only’ Prom – Heatstreet

Segregation is all the rage these days. Under the banner of “social justice,” more and more schools are dividing their students into increasingly niche groups to provide them with “safe spaces” apart from each other – the polar opposite of inclusivity and integration.

With the goal of creating a “safe space” in mind, a Detroit school has set out to hold a girls-only prom to celebrate traditional Muslim customs. It’s being created for girls who would otherwise be prohibited by their ultraconservative Muslim families from going to regular proms, where attendees are allowed to have fun and dance with members of the opposite sex in good old American tradition.

Hamtramck High School’s girls-only “Princess Prom” was first organized in 2012 by a group of five Muslim girls to give them the opportunity to go to a “safe space” prom. In 2016, 230 girls showed up. This year, they’re expecting at least 250 attendees.

North Korea Fires Missile That Lands In Sea Near Russia – Reuters

North Korea, defying calls to rein in its weapons program, fired a ballistic missile that landed in the sea near Russia on Sunday, days after a new leader came to power in South Korea pledging to engage Pyongyang in dialogue.

ICE Detains Illegal Aliens With Prior Deportation Orders Working Construction At Air Force Base – Gateway Pundit

ICE agents have arrested two illegal aliens from Jalisco, Mexico working construction at Travis Air Force Base in California and are working to deport them ASAP.

Mejia and a coworker, Rodrigo Nuٌez from Hayward – both undocumented immigrants from Jalisco, Mexico who have been in the United States for more than a decade – were detained on the base after a military official discovered they did not have valid social security numbers during a routine identification screening and reported them to Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

ICE officials have placed both men in expedited deportation proceedings without a court hearing – known formally as “reinstatement” – because they each have old removal orders issued more than a decade ago after border agents caught them attempting to illegally cross the border. Neither of them has criminal records, according to their attorney.

Now of course the illegal aliens turned themselves into victims crying ‘why me’ (in Spanish of course) and claiming they ‘never did anything to anyone’ despite the fact that they are in the country illegally taking jobs from Americans by using stolen/false social security numbers…

Hate Crime Hoax: Black Man Firebombed Immigrant’s Store, Authored Note From ‘White America’ – American Mirror

A hate crime allegedly perpetrated by “white America” turned out to be hoax perpetuated by a black criminal with an ax to grind against President Trump.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police arrested 32-year-old Curtis Flournoy on Sunday for firebombing the immigrant-operated Central Market in east Charlotte in what they’re characterizing as a pre-planned hate crime, according to The Charlotte Observer.

Investigators allege Flournoy threw a rock through the store’s window last Thursday, followed by a flaming object that started a blaze at the store owned by Indian immigrants.

A typed letter left behind read:

Our newly elected president Donald Trump is our nation builder for white America. You all know that, we want our country back on the right track. We need to get rid of Muslims, Indians and all immigrants. Specially, we don’t want business run by refugees and immigrant any more. We are ready to wake up some of our great state including North Carolina and we will take care of the country…

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has arrived in Moscow, his plane has landed at the Vnukovo-2 airport. This is Tillerson’s first visit to Russia as Secretary of State in the Trump administration. On April 12, he will hold talks with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. The U.S. missile attack on Syria’s Shayrat air base, carried out on April 7, will top the agenda.

According to the Russian Foreign Ministry, “the recent U.S .missile strike on the Syrian government air base is an act of aggression against a sovereign state and a violation of international law which is likely to strengthen the position of terrorists.”

The Russian Foreign Ministry called on the United States to agree to an impartial investigation of the Khan Shaykhun chemical weapons incident and stop making decisions based on false reports by the so-called White Helmets and other faux non-profit organizations…

U.S. Special Forces Obliterate ISIS Fighters Trying To Assault Base In Southern Syria – Daily Caller

U.S. special forces obliterated an entire Islamic State attack team assaulting a base in southern Syria Saturday, military officials said.

“The enemy got crushed,” a U.S. military official told NBC News.

ISIS fighters launched an assault on the al-Tanf military base in southern Syria, according to the two officials who spoke to NBC News. Approximately 20-30 ISIS fighters, some with suicide vests, were following behind a vehicle that was carrying an improvised explosive device.

American forces are stationed at the base, which is used to train Syrian rebels. Other American troops on a nearby patrol responded after hearing about the attack to provide assistance.

U.S. and coalition forces killed the ISIS fighters through direct fire and airstrikes, leaving zero survivors. No Americans were killed in the fight…

Breakthrough: Pump Reverses Heart Damage Without The Need For A Transplant – Daily Express
.

British doctors last night hailed a medical procedure which sees patients with severe heart disease recover full fitness – without the need for a transplant.

Nearly two-fifths of sufferers went on to make a full recovery when they were given the mechanical pump.

A national shortage of donated hearts for transplant is leading to calls for the battery-operated machines to be considered as a tool which can allow patients to fully restore their health.

The pumps are currently used to support patients with severe heart failure while they wait for a transplant.

A spokesman for the team at Newcastle University Dr Djordje Jakovljevic said: “For the first time, what we have shown is that heart function is restored in some patients to the extent that they are just like someone healthy who has never had heart disease,” he said…

Southwest Border Crossings Drop To Lowest Point In 17 Years – Los Angeles Times

Slowly, the Border Patrol truck cut through the darkness, its headlights illuminating a deserted, sandy road framed by long grass and yellow mesquite trees.

“This area used to be really hot,” said Marlene Castro, a supervisory Border Patrol agent, as she scanned the path ahead for immigrants who had crossed the Rio Grande illegally into the United States. “You couldn’t move. Every time you turned a corner, you’d run into group after group.”

At 10 p.m. on a Friday night, this once-bustling crossing point – a stretch of wild brushland between the Rio Grande and the sprawling Texas border cities of Hidalgo and McAllen – is desolate. The only signs of life, apart from the odd wildcat stalking prey, are Border Patrol agents lurking by the roadside in pickup trucks and SUVs.

Across the Southwest border, the number of immigrants caught crossing illegally into the United States has dropped dramatically. Fewer than 12,200 people were apprehended in March, a 64% decrease from the same time last year, and the lowest monthly number in at least 17 years…

Leftist Lawmakers In New York Approve “Free” College Tuition For The Middle Class – Daily Freeman

New York will be the first state to make tuition at public colleges and universities free for middle-class students under a state budget approved by lawmakers Sunday.

The plan crafted by Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo will apply to any New York student whose family has an annual income of $125,000 or less. To qualify the student would have to meet certain class load and grade point average restrictions, and room and board would not be covered.

“College is today what high school was 50 years ago,” Cuomo said on a radio interview Sunday on AM 970 in New York City. “If you’re a young person who wants success and a career, a college education is necessary.

Israel Quietly Treats Thousands Of Wounded Syrians – WorldNetDaily

Since 2013, Israeli doctors and nurses have treated more than 3,000 Syrians wounded in the bloody six-year civil war that has ravaged the country, killed some 400,000 people and caused a refugee crisis throughout Europe.

And, if some top officials in the Jewish state have their way, that’s just a start.

As the fighting heats up and with the recent sarin gas attack that killed more than 100 civilians in mind, not to mention a U.S. Tomahawk missile strike, Israeli hospitals are preparing for many more casualties.

Some of the patients are saying their treatment has changed their minds about Israel.

Dr. Salman Zarka, director of the Ziv Medical Center in the northern Israeli town of Safed and a former colonel in the medical corps who served on the Syrian border, says he “couldn’t then have imagined setting up a humanitarian program for Syrians.” Now his hospital has delivered 19 Syrian babies and sends prescriptions with patients back to their homeland…

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

China will offer the Trump administration better market access for financial sector investments and US beef exports to help avert a trade war, according to Chinese and U.S. officials involved in talks between the two governments.

U.S. President Donald Trump and Xi Jinping, his Chinese counterpart, decided at their first meeting in Florida last week that they needed rushed trade negotiations to produce results within 100 days. The two concessions on finance and beef are relatively easy for Beijing to make.

At present, foreign investors cannot hold a majority stake in securities and insurance companies in China. The country’s largest companies in these sectors, such as Citic Securities and China Life Insurance, have achieved enormous scale in the 15 years since the world’s second-biggest economy joined the World Trade Organisation, making them formidable competitors for new entrants to the market.

The concession to allow majority foreign ownership was discussed during Barack Obama’s administration, when Chinese and US negotiators held several rounds of talks about a bilateral investment treaty, or BIT…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Chapel Hill officials already warned fans not to light bonfires on the street after the game, but by midnight fans already had three bonfires burning brightly in the intersection.

Also, by 12:05 a.m. Tuesday, young men had climbed street poles on at least three corners of the intersection and were standing on top of the walk/don’t walk signs.

And on March 23, a 54-year-old journalist and mother of three, Miroslava Breach, was fatally shot eight times outside her home while she was in her car with one of her children. A rolled-up piece of cardboard was left with a chilling reason for the crime: “being a tattletale.”

Three Mexican journalists were killed last month in an “unprecedented” wave of violence against the press. The job of a journalist has become so dangerous in the nation that one Mexican newspaper owner has decided he is no longer willing to take on the risk.

In a front-page letter published Sunday with the massive headline “Adios!” the editor of Norte, a newspaper in the Mexican border city of Juarez, announced it would be ending its print publication as a result of the ongoing violence against journalists, killings that often go unpunished…

Leftist Professor Tries To Get Conservatives Fired Over Facebook Argument – Campus Reform

Elizabeth Bishop, who is allegedly rumored to become the next dean of the College of Liberal Arts, made phone calls to employers and a university department in an attempt to punish the two conservatives for daring to disagree with her in a Facebook discussion.

The Facebook status in question was initially posted by Colton Duncan, the student body vice president, but was apparently later removed by Facebook for “violating community standards.”

Duncan decried Texas State’s apparent double standard in allowing radical communist Angela Davis to speak on campus, calling her an “American terrorist,” but not allowing the College Republicans to hold a Women’s Empowerment Summit…

Moonbat-Infested Cambridge, Mass Votes To Impeach Trump – Weasel Zippers

There’s a reason we call it the People’s Republic of Cambridge around here.

The city of Cambridge is weighing whether to call for an impeachment investigation into President Donald Trump.

Vice Mayor Marc McGovern has filed a policy order for Monday’s city council meeting pushing for an investigation.

McGovern said he and others in the city believe Trump has violated the emoluments clause of the U.S. Constitution that prohibits government officials from profiting from foreign businesses.

McGovern said he believes Trump is still deeply involved in his business operations and there is evidence showing he has business dealings with foreign countries, which violates the clause.

Cambridge voted overwhelmingly for Democrat Hillary Clinton in last year’s presidential election…

Londonistan: 423 New Mosques; 500 Closed Churches – Gatestone Institute

“London is more Islamic than many Muslim countries put together”, according to Maulana Syed Raza Rizvi, one of the Islamic preachers who now lead “Londonistan”, as the journalist Melanie Phillips has called the English capital. No, Rizvi is not a right-wing extremist. Wole Soyinka, a Nobel Laureate for Literature, was less generous; he called the UK “a cesspit for Islamists”.

“Terrorists can not stand London multiculturalism”, London’s mayor Sadiq Khan said after the recent deadly terror attack at Westminster. The opposite is true: British multiculturalists are feeding Islamic fundamentalism. Above all, Londonistan, with its new 423 mosques, is built on the sad ruins of English Christianity.

The Hyatt United Church was bought by the Egyptian community to be converted to a mosque. St Peter’s Church has been converted into the Madina Mosque. The Brick Lane Mosque was built on a former Methodist church. Not only buildings are converted, but also people. The number of converts to Islam has doubled; often they embrace radical Islam, as with Khalid Masood, the terrorist who struck Westminster…

Obama Spied, Media Lied – Andrew Klavan

Holy smoking gun, Batman!

Once you wave away all the smoke created by our dishonest media, the story of this past week was pretty simple. The Trump-Russia-Conspiracy narrative is falling apart. The Obama-Spied-on-his-Political-Opposition narrative is coming together.

The media has given credence to Democrat Congressman Adam Schiff’s hysterical charges about how the Republican chair of the committee, Devin Nunes, made his latest discoveries. But Schiff is a dishonest McCarthyite, spewing insinuations and accusations without any proof to back them up.

Nunes, on the other hand, has obviously gotten hold of solid intel showing that Obama spied on Trump and his people, pretty much as the president tweeted back on March 4. The willing Democrat executioners of truth – i.e. the news staffs at ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and the New York Times – give equal weight to the statements of both men, making it seem like the House Intelligence Committee has simply descended into partisan bickering. But that’s a lie. Nunes has found something. Schiff is smearing him and the president…

The New Jacobins – Richard Cravatts

When Chester Evans Finn, Jr., a former United States Assistant Secretary of Education, observed in 1989 that university campuses had become “islands of repression in a sea of freedom,” he was anticipating a troubling and prevalent trend now poisoning academia, namely, the suppression of free speech. With alarming regularity, speakers are shouted down, booed, jeered, and barraged with vitriol, all at the hands of groups who give lip service to the notion of academic free speech, and who demand it when their speech is at issue, but have no interest in listening to, or letting others listen to, ideas that contradict their own world view.

This is the tragic and inevitable result of a decades of grievance-based victimism by self-designated groups who frame their rights and demands on identity politics and who have been successful in weaponizing this victim status to stifle debate. In the space of the past two months, for example, tendentious and morally self-righteous progressive students, and some faculty, have displayed a shocking disregard for the university’s cardinal virtue of free expression, deciding themselves who may say what about whom on their respective campuses – and purging from campuses those ideas they have deemed too hateful, too unsafe, too incendiary to tolerate or to allow to be heard…

New Emails Reveal Obama, Clintons Led Cover-Up Of Cholera Outbreak In Haiti – The Observer

In October 2010, United Nations Peacekeepers from Nepal infected Haiti’s most significant river system with cholera, inciting the first cholera outbreak in the country in over a century. So far, the epidemic has taken over 10,000 lives, and some estimate that the disease has infected up to 800,000 people. Those who caused the outbreak – and covered it up – have not assumed responsibility, including the United Nations and several government agencies under the Obama administration, such as Hillary Clinton’s State Department.

Slate’s Jonathan Katz reports, “Nepal hadn’t invaded Haiti on its own: Its troops were part of a multinational force created by the Security Council, specifically at the behest of the George W. Bush administration in 2004. For the 13 years since, it has remained in Haiti largely to carry out U.S. policy – at a discount.”

The Russian central bank opened its first overseas office in Beijing on March 14, marking a step forward in forging a Beijing-Moscow alliance to bypass the US dollar in the global monetary system, and to phase in a gold-backed standard of trade.

According to the South China Morning Post the new office was part of agreements made between the two neighbours “to seek stronger economic ties” since the West brought in sanctions against Russia over the Ukraine crisis and the oil-price slump hit the Russian economy.

According to Dmitry Skobelkin, the deputy governor of the Central Bank of Russia, the opening of a Beijing representative office by the Central Bank of Russia was a “very timely” move to aid specific cooperation, including bond issuance, anti-money laundering and anti-terrorism measures between China and Russia.

The new central bank office was opened at a time when Russia is preparing to issue its first federal loan bonds denominated in Chinese yuan.

Jeff Sessions: Sanctuary Cities May Lose More Than Funding – Washington Times

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions told Bill O’Reilly in a recent “O’Reilly Factor” appearance on Fox News that sanctuary cities may face more backlash from the administration than a loss of funding – that the White House is considering other punitive measures, as well.

Good. No punishment is too small for sanctuary cities that go out of their way to help the criminal element. But for the left, this must be like the twisting of the proverbial knife.

“We are looking at other possibilities that would be detrimental [to these cities],” Sessions told O’Reilly. “In the future, we can put requirements on some.”

Sessions didn’t detail what those requirements might entail. And he didn’t elaborate on what the other possibilities could be.

But he did double down on the long-running White House message that cities in violation of federal immigration policy face a very real threat of losing taxpayer money.

“Right now, under the Obama administration, they sent out grant notices that require people to assert they’re in compliance with the laws and [that] threaten cutting off of various funds if they didn’t comply,” Sessions said…

NFL Owners Approve Oakland Raiders’ Move To Las Vegas – NFL

The Raiders are leaving Oakland again, this time for the neon lights of Las Vegas.

In a decision that would have been hard to fathom not so long ago, NFL owners voted 31-1 on Monday at the Annual League Meeting to approve the Raiders’ proposal to relocate to Las Vegas.

The decision comes after years of fruitless efforts by Raiders owner Mark Davis to build a viable stadium in Oakland. The failure to do so, which goes back to Davis’ late father Al Davis’ stewardship of the team, led to exploring stadium options in Los Angeles and eventually Las Vegas, where Nevada lawmakers approved $750 million in public funding for a new stadium. The Autumn Wind will no longer blow through Raiders games as the team is expected to move into a planned $1.7 billion domed stadium in Las Vegas.

In what is sure to be an awkward process, the Raiders won’t be moving immediately. The new stadium in Las Vegas is not expected to be ready until 2020. The Raiders plan to play at the Oakland Coliseum in 2017 and 2018, Davis said in a statement…

Brooklyn Prosecutor Charged With Forging Judges’ Signatures For Illegal Wiretaps – WNBC

A supervising prosecutor from the Brooklyn district attorney’s office forged judges’ signatures in order to obtain illegal wiretaps and then used those wiretaps to illegally monitor cell phone calls and text messages, federal prosecutors alleged in an indictment Monday.

Tara Lenich, 41, who was an assistant district attorney with the Kings County District Attorney’s Office, allegedly created those fake judicial orders for more than a year – from June 2015 to November 2016 – in order to get the wiretaps.

She then, prosecutors allege, used equipment from the DA’s office to “intercept, monitor and record the communications to and from the two cellular telephones.”

Lenich didn’t comment to reporters after she was arraigned Monday. Her attorney also declined to comment.

She was initially arrested last November and fired from the DA’s office once the allegations came to light.

Army Sergeant Faces Discharge Over Bin Laden Raid Intelligence That Obama Made Public In 2011 – Washington Times

The Army is booting out a 13-year public affairs sergeant for including in an unclassified government email the same information about a special operations unit and Osama bin Laden found on Army.mil web pages.

The irony in the narrative of Staff Sgt. Ricardo Branch is that his motive was to keep classified material away from public view.

His disclosure in a private Army email is also the same information as told by his commander in chief, Barack Obama, in May 2011 when the president visited Fort Campbell, Kentucky, to personally thank the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (SOAR), or “Night Stalkers,” for its critical role in killing al Qaeda leader Osamabin Laden.

Tony Podesta Made $500K Lobbying For Chinese Firm Convicted Of Illegal Sales To Iran – Daily Caller

Trump Picks Son-In-Law Jared Kushner To Head New ‘Office Of American Innovation’ – The Hill

$540,701,000,000: U.S. Property Taxes Hit Record In 2016 – CNS

Americans paid a record $540,701,000,000 in property taxes to state and local governments in fiscal 2016, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

That was up $16,748,620,000 – or about 3.2 percent – from $523,952,380,000 in property taxes (in constant 2016 dollars) that state and local governments collected in fiscal 2015.

The prior national record for property taxes was set in fiscal 2009, when they hit $527,850,500,000 in constant 2016 dollars. Fiscal 2016’s record total of $540,701,000,000 was up $12,850,000,000 – or about 2.4 percent – from that previous record.

I refer, of course, to the tiny, elite fellowship of scientists, economists, politicians, journalists and bloggers who have bravely taken the right side of the climate argument and spoken up for truth, integrity and the scientific method in defiance of the vast and terrifying propaganda behemoth they call the Green Blob.

Many of them were present at the annual Heartland Institute Climate Conference in Washington DC this week. I was sorry not to have been able to make it there myself this year because these people have become my friends…

WikiLeaks Publishes Largest Cache Of Confidential CIA Documents Ever – Zero Hedge

WikiLeaks has published what it claims is the largest ever release of confidential documents on the CIA. It includes more than 8,000 documents as part of ‘Vault 7’, a series of leaks on the agency, which have allegedly emerged from the CIA’s Center For Cyber Intelligence in Langley, and which can be seen on the org chart below, which Wikileaks also released.

A total of 8,761 documents have been published as part of ‘Year Zero’, the first in a series of leaks the whistleblower organization has dubbed ‘Vault 7.’ WikiLeaks said that ‘Year Zero’ revealed details of the CIA’s “global covert hacking program,” including “weaponized exploits” used against company products including “Apple’s iPhone, Google’s Android and Microsoft’s Windows and even Samsung TVs, which are turned into covert microphones.”

WikiLeaks tweeted the leak, which it claims came from a network inside the CIA’s Center for Cyber Intelligence in Langley, Virginia.

Among the key topical revelations is that the CIA can engage in “false flag” cyberattacks which portray Russia as the assailant…

Obama Regime Placed Over 100,000 Border-Jumping Children In Homes Headed By Other Illegals – Washington Examiner
.

.
During the last two years of the Obama administration, immigration officials handled the surge of youths across the border by delivering over 100,000 of them to households headed by other illegals, and the result was that 36 percent of the kids never showed up for court hearings.

A new analysis of the prior administration’s open door policy for illegal youths mostly from Mexico, El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala, also showed that only 25 percent of those who did go to court were given permission to stay.

The Center for Immigration Studies, in its latest analysis of the crisis in unaccompanied alien children, said:

“From FY 2014 – FY 2016, 106,802 UACs were placed in illegal alien households throughout the country as a result of Obama administration policies…

Hillary Was Tipped Off To Wiretapping Of Trump, Tweeted About It A Week Before The Election – Gateway Pundit

TGP reported earlier that the first FISA request came right after AG Loretta Lynch met with Bill Clinton on the tarmac at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport in June of 2016.

The second FISA request was submitted in October of 2016 just before the election. Hillary Clinton sent out a tweet on October 31st stating that ‘computer scientists have uncovered a covert server linking the Trump organization to a Russian-based server’.

It appears she was tipped off to the wiretapping prior to the election.

Here is Hillary Clinton’s tweet from October 31st… Computer scientists?… Connect the dots, folks. This was a well coordinated attack on a Presidential candidate. AG Lynch met with Bill Clinton just before the first FISA request.

After they were successful with the second FISA request in October, it appears Bill Clinton passed on the information to his wife to help her win the election. This scandal is about to blow wide open; it’s not going away any time soon. Stay tuned…

D.C. Suburb Cancels School So Leftist Teachers Can Protest Trump – The Federalist

A Washington D.C. suburb that overwhelmingly voted for Hillary Clinton in the November 2016 election is preemptively cancelling classes on Wednesday so its teachers can protest Donald Trump.

The same organizers behind the Women’s March, which attracted hundreds of thousands of women in opposition to President Donald Trump the day after his inauguration, are encouraging women to stay home from work on March 8 to show that they aren’t happy about the current president.

Alexandria City Public Schools said that because 300 employees asked for time off on Wednesday, there were not enough teachers to oversee its classrooms.

Democrat Super-Lobbyist Got $170,000 To End U.S. Sanctions On Russian Bank – Daily Caller

Democrat super-lobbyist Tony Podesta was paid $170,000 over a six-month period last year to represent Sberbank, Russia’s largest bank, seeking to end one of the Obama administration’s economic sanctions against that country, The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group has learned.

Podesta, founder and chairman of the Podesta Group, is listed as a key lobbyist on behalf of Sberbank, according to Senate lobbying disclosure forms. His firm received more than $24 million in fees in 2016, much of it coming from foreign governments, according to the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics.

Podesta is the brother of John Podesta, who was the national campaign chairman for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s losing 2016 campaign for the presidency. Former President Barack Obama imposed the sanctions following the Russian seizure of the Crimean region of Ukraine in 2014.

The lobbying campaign targeted Congress and the executive branch, with Podesta and other lobbyists arranging at least two meetings between Sberbank officers and Department of State officials, according to Elena Teplitskaya, Sberbank’s board chairman, who spoke to House aides in August…

Obama Regime Funneled Billions Of Taxpayer Dollars Into Left-Wing Activist Groups – Daily Wire

Several Liberal Journalists Apparently Want IRS Employees To Commit Felonies To Get Trump’s Taxes – Law Newz

Obtaining Donald Trump‘s tax documents, by any any means necessary, has become sort of an obsession for some on the left. It started back during the campaign in September when The New York Times‘ Editor Dean Baquet suggested that he would go to jail in order to publish Trump’s tax returns.

Strangely enough, about a week later a portion of Trump’s state tax return from the 1990s showed up at the The New York Times. Ever since, there has been a frenzy among some on the left to see who will get the next big scoop.

Now, here we are more than one month into the presidency of Trump and as Tax Season nears, it seems the frenzy to get eyes on the Donald’s tax returns has once again reached a fever pitch. And sure enough, The New York Times in front and center again leading the charge, this time from top columnist Nicholas Kristof.

If you were to come across someone who cried in the streets, who saw the world in terms of black and white and made death threats against strangers, who cowered in a special room and made public displays of naked self-harm and blood letting, you might conclude that they were suffering from a personality disorder.

All these symptoms can be found in the High Conflict Personality Disorder category known as Axis II in DSMV, including Anti-Social PD, Histrionic PD, Paranoid PD, Narcissistic PD, and Borderline PD.

Alternatively, you might reason that these are the everyday behaviors of the modern Social Justice Warrior (SJW).

Ukraine Has Lost Billions On The Trade Agreement With The EU In Year One – Zero Hedge

The Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Agreement (DCFTA) between Ukraine and the European Union, which came into force on 1 January 2016, was aimed at helping the East European economy to recover; however, the results after the first year fell far short of Ukraine’s expectations. The former Soviet Republic lost €2.2 billion more than it lost in 2015 on trade with the EU. While imports from the EU have surged, exports have barely grown.

As Polish media reports, the European Union has flooded Ukraine with goods, which is contrary to the aim of the free trade agreement: the document assumed the asymmetric openness of the markets in Ukraine’s favour.

According to the Eurostat data, EU’s exports to Ukraine grew in 2016 by 17.6%, from €14bn to €16.5bn, whereas Ukraine’s exports to the EU increased by 1.9%, i.e. from €12.8bn to €13bn. As a result, Ukraine’s trade deficit with the EU has surged from €1.2bn to €3.43bn!..

Further, the Journal reports that intercepted conversations between Israeli leaders confirmed Israel’s knowledge of the talks, as well as its intent to undermine any nuclear deal with Iran by leaking its details. When Netanyahu and his top aides came to Washington to talk with Jewish-American groups and members of Congress to lobby against the deal, the NSA was there to pick up the conversations.

Senior officials told the WSJ that those conversations collected by the NSA raised fears “that the executive branch would be accused of spying on Congress.”…

Obama V. Trump: Strictly Correct And Misleading V. Not Strictly Correct But Fundamentally True – Streetwise Professor

I will just mention one fact that strongly supports the veracity of Trump’s allegation: namely, the very narrow – and lawyerly – “denials” emanating from the Obama camp.

Obama and his surrogates – notably the slug (or is he a cockroach?) Ben Rhodes – harrumph that Obama could not unilaterally order electronic surveillance. Well, yes, it is the case that Obama did not personally issue the order: the FISA court did so. But even if that is literally correct, it is also true that the FISA court would not unilaterally issue such an order: it would only do so in response to a request from the executive branch. Thus, Obama is clearly implicated even if he did not issue the order. He could have ordered his subordinates to make the request to the court, or could have approved a subordinate’s request to seek an order…

Illegal Immigration Dropped 27% In January – Washington Times

Illegal immigration across the southwest border plummeted in January, compared to December, as the flow of both illegal immigrant families and children traveling alone dried up, according to numbers released by Customs and Border Protection on Monday.

The numbers are still high compared to past years – indeed, it’s the worst January in records dating back to 2012.

But total apprehensions of migrants trying to sneak across the border fell 27 percent on a month-to-month basis, to 31,575. And the number of inadmissible migrants who showed up at the southwest’s ports of entry fell 28 percent, to 10,899.

Apprehensions are deemed an indicator of the overall flow: The more people caught, the more are believed to be getting through.

The flow always decreases in the deep months of the winter, before picking up again in the spring. Last year Border Patrol apprehensions dropped 36 percent from December to January.

Wacky North Korean Dictator Executes 5 Senior Officials With Anti-Aircraft Guns – Townhall

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un ordered the execution of five senior officials from his Ministry of State Security, according to a South Korean intelligence agency.

The executions, carried out with anti-aircraft guns, were punishments for unspecified “false reports” that “enraged” the dictator.

The issue stems from the totalitarian state’s refusal of any wrongdoing in the apparent assassination of Kim Jong Un’s half brother, Kim Jong Nam.

The son of Song Hye-Rim, a South Korean-born actress who is believed to have been a mistress of former North Korean leader Kim Jong-Il, was killed outside the Kuala Lumpur International Airport in Malaysia earlier this month.

Jong-Nam had been an advocate for change in North Korea, especially after he was banned from the country after an attempt to visit Disney World in 2010.

South Korea labeled the death of Jong Nam “a state terrorist act.”…

Fake Black Woman Rachel Dolezal Is Nearly Homeless, Living On Food Stamps And Still White – Daily Caller

Former NAACP branch president Rachel Dolezal, who lied about being black but still identifies as black, is now jobless, living on food stamps and expects to lose her home next month.

“There’s no protected class for me,” the former NAACP branch president told The Guardian. “I’m this generic, ambiguous scapegoat for white people to call me a race traitor and take out their hostility on. And I’m a target for anger and pain about white people from the black community. It’s like I am the worst of all these worlds.”

Dolezal has applied for over 100 jobs, but has received no offers, even from a supermarket. She has, however, been offered work in porn and reality TV. While a friend helped pay her rent for February, Dolezal expects she’ll lose her home next month.

“I do think a more complex label would be helpful, but we don’t really have that vocabulary,” said the former Africana studies instructor. “I feel like the idea of being trans-black would be much more accurate than ‘I’m white.’ Because you know, I’m not white.”…

Chinese-American Businessman In Hiding After Confessing To Illegal Fundraising For The Clintons; Fears Untimely Death – Zero Hedge

Those who are connected to the crimes and misdemeanors of the Clinton cartel live in hiding for fear of their lives.

Of course there was funneling of money going on. The Wikileaks and Guccifer 2.0 hacks went along way in documenting the quid pro quo nature of Clinton diplomacy.

Back in the 90s, it was selling nuclear secrets to China, and schmoozing with high powered Chinese individuals, caught up in real estate deals, fundraising schemes and the like.

So it is little surprising, though certainly alarming, that this story has surfaced of a Chinese-American businessman who is living in hiding and who felt compelled to make an ‘insurance policy’ video detailing his involvement in the Clinton admin’s “Chinagate” which involved laundered funds from high powered Chinese businessmen:

The 12 Dumbest Ever ‘Bias Incidents’ On America’s College Campuses – Daily Caller

In the last few years, more than 230 American colleges and universities – 143 of them lavishly funded by taxpayers – have launched bias reporting systems encouraging students to report each other for incidents of offensive speech and other kinds of “bias.”

The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) published an exhaustive survey of such speech-chilling bias reporting systems earlier this month.

The speech and conduct of some 2.84 million students in the United States are subject to evaluation under bias reporting systems, according to the civil rights group.

The personnel who investigate student speech – usually called some variation of “bias response teams” – frequently includes law enforcement officials as well as school administrators and public relations staffers. Upon a finding of “guilty,” the teams of cops and bureaucrats summon students for hearings. These meetings are often intimidating and quasi-disciplinary. Their function, FIRE suggests, is to enforce a politically correct speech orthodoxy on campuses…

GOP Leaps On Congressional Review Act To Kill Obama Rules – Roll Call

A law that’s been successfully used only once until now is the conduit for a whole lot of action on Capitol Hill.

Republicans in Congress are expected to send a stream of bills – most of which require a single sentence – to President Donald Trump’s desk, using a process known as the Congressional Review Act to repeal agency rules. The act was tucked into 1996 legislation tied to former House Speaker Newt Gingrich’s famous “Contract with America.”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, at a press conference last week, joined a group of Republican leaders who have trumpeted using the CRA to roll back regulations put in place under President Barack Obama. The law allows Congress to repeal certain rules of the previous administration under a fast-track process that requires only a simple majority in the Senate. Congress generally has 60 days to begin repeal of those rules.

Hillary Clinton’s Eye Problems Return In DNC Welcome Video – American Mirror

Despite being relieved of the stresses of a presidential campaign, Hillary Clinton’s apparent eye problems reoccurred during a welcome video she produced for the Democratic National Committee meeting on Friday.

“We as Democrats must move forward with courage, confidence and optimism, and stay focused on the elections we must win this year and next,” Clinton said.

“Let resistance plus persistence equal progress for our party and our country.”

A close examination of the video shows Clinton’s eye problems – which appeared while she was on the campaign trail – are still evident.

At several points in the video, Hillary’s eyes were not in sync, a condition at least one doctor said can be caused by brain swelling and can lead to double vision…

Trump To Sign Executive Orders Advancing Keystone, Dakota Pipelines – Zero hedge

It is just day two of his presidency, and already Trump is taking a sledgehammer to the Obama legacy: in his latest move reported moments ago by Bloomberg, president Trump intends to sign two executive actions today that would advance construction of the controversial Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines, putting a spoke, so to say, in the train wheels of Warren Buffett’s train-based oil transportation quasi-monopoly.

The orders would fulfill campaign promises Trump made to approve both pipelines, which face strong opposition from Democrats and environmentalists, but ardent support from the oil industry and the GOP. The White House said Trump plans to sign executive orders at 11 a.m. Tuesday morning, but did not provide more details, nor did it respond to the Bloomberg report.

It’s unclear what exactly the orders would do and whether they would fully approve the pipelines or take some other steps in that direction.

If fully built by developer TransCanada Corp., Keystone would run from Alberta, Canada’s oil sands to the Gulf Coast in Texas, bringing heavy oil sands petroleum to refineries. Last month, the Obama administration ordered a comprehensive environmental impact statement to be conducted on the Dakota Access Pipeline before any decision could be made on building its final section below Lake Oahe in North Dakota.

Dakota Access has been the subject of internationally recognized protests that have fired up environmentalists and indigenous rights activists…

Trump Imposes Freeze On Federal, Non-Military Hiring – The Hill

President Donald Trump has signed an executive order freezing all federal government hiring except for the military, making good on a promise from his campaign.

The new president issued the order alongside two others on Monday morning – one to ban international organizations from using American dollars if they provide or promote abortions and another withdrawing from the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

He signed the orders just before noon in the Oval Office as Vice President Mike Pence, Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, chief strategist Steve Bannon and other top aides looked on.

As Priebus presented him with the document, Trump interrupted to make clear that the freeze exempted the military. He made no further comment about the new directive.

The order directs that no vacant positions can be filled, or new positions created, unless an agency head deems the position “necessary to meet national security or public safety responsibilities,” according to text of the order released shortly before 5 p.m.

But this freeze does not apply to Trump’s impending nomination and executive appointments, as he is still filling out his administration.

The freeze will allegedly end once the Office of Management and Budget creates a “long-term plan to reduce the size of the Federal Government’s workforce through attrition.”

White House press secretary Sean Spicer shed further light on the plan at a press conference Monday, claiming that it “counters the dramatic expansion of the federal workforce in recent years.”…

Sweden: Muslim Migrants Gang-Rape Woman, Broadcast It Live On Facebook – Jihad Watch

The Swedish publication NyheterIdag says that the attackers were “nysvenskar,” that is, “new Swedes,” which is the establishment media euphemism for Muslim migrants.

And so here we go again. The Qur’an teaches that Infidel women can be lawfully taken for sexual use (cf. its allowance for a man to take “captives of the right hand,” 4:3, 4:24, 23:1-6, 33:50, 70:30). The Qur’an says: “O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.” (33:59) The implication there is that if women do not cover themselves adequately with their outer garments, they may be abused, and that such abuse would be justified.

Shocking Security Flaws Allow Anyone To Get To UK On Eurostar Without A Passport – Daily Mail

The shocking loophole takes advantage of the open-borders Schengen Agreement that allows people to travel across Europe without showing a passport.

Britain is not part of the agreement and travellers are expected to show passports when they board the Eurostar to come here.

Man Who Stole 1.6M In Gold From NYC Armored Truck Arrested In Ecuador; Was Previously Deported 4 Times – Fox News

The man police say snatched $1.6 million worth of gold flakes from an armored truck in New York City in September was arrested Thursday in Ecuador, The Daily News reported.

The report said Julio Nivelo, 53, was deported four times to Ecuador, but managed to make his way back to the U.S. Federal agents from Homeland Security assisted in his capture.

The report said authorities believe Nivelo made his way from New York to Florida and then to California. It is believed he made his way to Ecuador from California.

He was described in the report as a career criminal and police sources told the paper he made similar grabs ranging from jewelry in a courier truck and camera equipment.

Still, the video of the gold flakes swipe was remarkably brazen to many.

The footage is said to show the man capitalizing on a 20-second window left open by the guards, one of whom was making a pickup while the other was walking to the front seat.

The theft unfolded on West 48th Street in the Diamond District on Sept. 29 – in broad daylight – as tourists and locals were walking in and out of the countless jewelry stores that line the block.

A surveillance camera captured the opportune heist on tape and showed the man making off with the 86-pound bucket. Throughout his hour-long escape, he appears to struggle with the gold flakes – stopping to set them down several times and even attempting to carry them on his shoulder at one point, according to NBC.

There is no immediate word as to where the gold flakes are…

Majority Of 230 Protesters Busted On Inauguration Day To Be Charged With Felony Rioting, Face 10-Year Prison Sentences – Daily Mail

Most of the 230 rioters arrested after violent protests erupted in Washington D.C. following Donald Trump’s inauguration will be charged with felony rioting, federal prosecutors said on Saturday.

The charge carries a punishment of up to ten years in jail and a $25,000 fine.

Thousand of protesters launched a violent rampage just blocks away from the White House as anti-Trump demonstrators smashed store windows, set fire to cars and threw bricks at police.

Many of those arrested are due to appear in court on Saturday, according to WUSA 9.

Heated clashes broke out in McPherson Square and along K Street as hundreds of riot police fired tear gas and drew their nightsticks to contain the masked mob.

As the rioting unfolded, Trump and his family were arriving at a review stand at the White House to see the end of the inaugural parade.

Militant anti-Trump protesters gave a foretaste of what could follow during the violent outbreaks, which has so far seen 217 people arrested and at least six police officers injured.

Just before the parade started, clashes broke out between more than 400 stone-throwing protesters and riot police in McPherson Square – just blocks from the parade in honor of newly sworn-in president.

As Trump’s motorcade wound its way up Pennsylvania Avenue in the parade to the White House, protesters also descended on Franklin Square Park where they graffitied a stretch limo before setting the vehicle ablaze right outside the Washington Post building….

‘DeploraBall’ Organizer To File Charges Against ‘Disrupt J-20’ Gang: Conspiracy To Commit Domestic Terrorism – Real Clear Politics

Mike Cernovich, author, pro-Trump Twitterer, and organizer of the ‘Deploraball,’ told followers on a Monday evening Periscope broadcast that he plans to file civil charges against anti-Trump protesters caught on camera planning to attack the event with stink bombs.

The ‘Deploraball’ is going to be a gathering of Trump supporters on Thursday night in Washington D.C. to celebrate the presidential inauguration. It is one of several inaugural balls planned in the city this week. Members of the ‘Disrupt J-20’ and ‘D.C. Anti-Fascist Coalition’ groups were recorded by undercover journalists from James O’Keefe’s ‘Project Veritas’ planning to release stink bombs and activate fire alarms at the party.

“They made a real big mistake,” Cernovich said about the ‘Disrupt J-20’ organizers. “When you’re threatened with terrorism, and you have people saying they’re going to commit terrorism at a party you’re hosting, you have to take that quite seriously.”

“They seem to think it is just a prank, and I would refer them to the Dept. of Justice’s website – This is actually a felony,” he continued. “This isn’t funny at all. It is terrorism… We have filed a criminal complaint against the conspirators, and the FBI is investigating that right now. Tomorrow we will be filing a civil action against them also.

Black Race Activist Calls Black Band Playing At Trump Inauguration ‘Coons’ – Daily Caller

A race activist referred to a historically black college’s marching band as “coons” for playing at President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration.

Tariq Nasheed, a black writer and activist, used a racist trope to describe Talladega College’s marching band.

“So the HBCU [historically black colleges and universities] Talladega College Marching Band has agreed to perform at the Trump inauguration… that’s interesting,” Nasheed wrote, adding a picture of a group of raccoons playing instruments.

“Coons” has been commonly used as a slur for black people. It was usually used to describe a black person whose only purpose was to entertain white people.

The announcement of the band’s decision to play at the inauguration was met with a mix of outrage and support. Some alumni from the college protested the decision, while others have donated money to help send the band to the inauguration.

A GoFundMe page set up for the students raised nearly $600,000, a far cry from the original intent to raise only $75,000.

“We didn’t get into this for any political reasons,” the college’s President Billy Hawkins explained. “We think this will be a phenomenal experience for our students. They get a chance to perform in front of the whole world, on an international stage.”…

Rio Grande Prison Riot Leaves 26 Inmates Dead During Clash Between Rival Gangs – Daily Mail

The latest Brazilian prison riot has left a confirmed 26 inmates dead – and at least three men beheaded.

Rival drug gangs have been clashing in the country’s prison system since the start of the year and a number of massacres have led to 140 prisoner deaths.

Security forces stormed the prison at dawn on Sunday and restored order after 14 hours of violence, local authorities said. They now believe all bodies are accounted for.

The state security office for Rio Grande do Norte state had reported earlier in the day that there were 27 deaths, but later lowered that by one.

State security officials said fighting between rival gangs broke out Saturday at the adjacent Alcacuz and Rogerio Coutinho prisons near the city of Natal.

Officials waited until dawn Sunday before entering to try to re-impose control, state security chief Caio Cesar Bezerra said.

“This way we guaranteed a calm intervention, a pacific intervention without resistance from the inmates,” Bezerra said.

Photos taken yesterday show the magnitude of violence that plagues the country’s incarceration system.

Like many prisons across the country, Alcacuz is overcrowded, with more than 1,000 inmates crammed into a facility meant for 620.

Another official earlier said at least three inmates were beheaded – a feature of similar massacres in other jails at the start of this month…

Tens Of Thousands Of Bikers, Cops For Trump Coming To DC For Inauguration – Conservative Base
.

.
As January 20 approaches, the fake news media (formerly known as the mainstream news media), is practically cheering on the anti-Trump groups that include several organizations funded by multi-billionaire George Soros. For example, Rev. Al Sharpton was the recipient of positive news coverage on Saturday with his Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. March that was more about Trump than about the civil-rights icon. The fact that, according to his niece, Dr. Alveda King, MLK was a registered Republican – since the Democratic Party was joined at the hip with Southern Democrats who opposed civil-rights legislation – seems to escape reporters.

While it’s a sure bet the majority of news organizations will avoid covering, pro-Trump events, the few who give them scant coverage without a doubt will denigrate and mischaracterize the groups such as Bikers for Trump and Cops for Trump…

How Chuck Schumer Caused Bank Collapse Dems Now Blame On Trump’s Treasury Nominee – Richard Pollock

Senate Democrats – led by senators Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Vermont Independent Bernie Sanders – hope to defeat Steven Mnuchin, President-elect Donald Trump’s nominee for Treasury Secretary, by focusing on his alleged role in the 2008 collapse of California’s IndyMac bank.

Warren has launched a web page on the official United States Senate website that calls Mnuchin, “the foreclosure king” because, as she and left-wing activists charge, he threw thousands of homeowners onto the street after he bought IndyMac. Mnuchin’s Senate confirmation hearing begins Thursday.

But The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group (TheDCNF) has uncovered extensive evidence that the person who triggered IndyMac’s financial crisis, which led to one of the largest bank failures in American history, was Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York.

Schumer started a $100 million-a-day run on the bank after he gave reporters a letter on June 26, 2008, addressed to federal regulators saying he was “concerned that IndyMac’s financial deterioration poses significant risks to both taxpayers and borrowers.”

The letter spooked depositors who in the next 11 days withdrew a record $1.3 billion from the bank.

News reports filed at the time squarely place the blame the bank’s failure on Schumer. The Los Angeles Times, for example, reported July 2, 2008, that “the letter stunned some Wall Street analysts, who said Schumer was in effect sealing the lender’s fate by raising the prospect of its failure.”…

FBI & NYPD: Clinton Foundation Probed For Money Laundering, Financial Transactions With Islamic Terrorists – True Pundit

Money launderers who bragged on a secret federal wire tap that they could employ Clinton Foundation connections to funnel and cleanse millions in illicit cash have sparked a newly-minted FBI investigation into the embattled charity run by Hillary Clinton and her family, federal law enforcement officials confirm.

The money laundering allegations being probed by the FBI have been buoyed by recent revelations and evidence discovered by the NYPD from a laptop confiscated from Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin’s Manhattan residence. According to NYPD, several of the emails recovered on the hard drive disclosed sensitive financial details of the Clintons and their charity. That evidence is now in the hands of the FBI too, whose New York field office has opened a parallel Clinton Foundation investigation…

Was Hillary Clinton’s Nomination Legitimate? Six Reasons To Say No – Breitbart

Democrats are consoling themselves by claiming Donald Trump’s election is illegitimate, but they’ll do themselves and the nation a favor if they consider their own faults – including the top-to-bottom corruption in their own party and political strategy.

1. The Democrats’ rigged primary: Democrats should begin by accepting the obvious truth of a rigged primary revealed by WikiLeaks. The party’s key leaders – not the party’s voters – picked and promoted Hillary Clinton, meaning she was secretly coronated before the primary ever began. Her rival Bernie Sanders never had a chance. The “nomination” contest was theater designed to make Sanders voters accept Clinton. His voters ought to be furious at Sanders for playing along with this farce, which he most certainly did.

When Party elders shriek about nefarious Russian interference in the election process, they’re trying to distract from what the leaked DNC emails actually said, and the fact that we now know those emails are 100 percent genuine, despite early Democrat statements to the contrary. One of those shrieking claims came from Donna Brazile, who was directly involved in doctoring a primary debate by leaking questions to Clinton, not to Sanders.

2. The Democrat superdelegate system: Then there’s the openly rigged element of the Democratic primary, the superdelegate system. It is a political instrument specifically designed to shut down insurgencies and make the interests of Democrat voters secondary to the judgment of party elites, and the powerful lobbyists who manipulate them…

Steelers Advance To AFC Championship With 18-16 Win Over Chiefs – Fox Sports

Who needs to reach the end zone when you have Le’Veon Bell chewing up yards and the clock, and Chris Boswell setting an NFL playoff record with six field goals?

One Hundred African Children Accuse UN Peacekeepers Of Rape – Your News Wire

An investigation has been launched into claims that UN peacekeepers brutally raped over 100 children in the Central African Republic.

This is not the first time UN workers have been accused of violent and sexual criminal activity. Similar crimes were reported after the UN entered Cambodia, Mozambique, Bosnia, Sudan and Kosovo – with reports of child sex trafficking becoming ‘rampant’ as a result.

Thefreethoughtproject.com reports:

In the past several years, the UN was caught attempting to cover-up the fact that there were 231 people in Haiti who claimed they were sexually violated by UN peacekeepers, and were forced to perform sexual acts in exchange for food and supplies that were intended as relief packages.

There are almost too many cases to list in which high-profile public figures or organizations were accused in pedophilia or human trafficking cases. However, they almost always dodge any prosecution or public scrutiny due to their control of the legal system and media.

There have been many cases in recent history where establishment figures have been caught up in child prostitution rings but quickly had the story swept under the rug.

One such case was on June 29, 1989, when the Washington Times’ Paul M. Rodriguez and George Archibald reported on a Washington D.C. prostitution ring that had intimate connections with the White House and President George H.W. Bush. It was suspected that this was connected with the Franklin prostitution ring that was being exposed at the same time, in a different part of the country…

Packers Topple Cowboys To Advance To NFC Championship Game – USA Today

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ midseason declaration that his team would “run the table” was merely a correctly predicted push to the NFC North title for a then-struggling 4-6 team.

Ringling Bros. Closing ‘Greatest Show On Earth’ After 146 Years – New York Post

Send home the clowns.

After 146 years, the curtain is coming down forever on “The Greatest Show on Earth.”

Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus’ last performance will be May 21 at the Nassau Coliseum.

The show stoppers included high operating costs, declining attendance and changing public tastes.

Not to mention a long and costly legal battle with animal rights advocates, which ended with its hugest stars – the elephants – being pink-slipped. Elephants had been the symbol of the circus since an Asian pachyderm named Jumbo joined the show in 1882.

Employes were told the sad news Saturday night in Orlando.

The circus will perform 30 more times. Besides the show on Long Island, there will be one in Brooklyn. Other stops on its last tour include Atlanta, Washington, Philadelphia and Boston.

With its exotic animals and death-defying acrobats, the big top had been a huge draw from the mid-1800s to the mid-1900s.

Phineas Taylor Barnum had made a traveling spectacle of animals and human oddities popular, while the five Ringling brothers performed juggling acts and skits. Eventually, they merged and the modern circus was born.

Its clowns, acrobats and horseback riders – along with their animals – were transported across the country in special cars on extra-long trains.

New York staged its own yearly spectacle. When the circus came to town, the performers, along with invited guests, rode elephants from the Sunnyside rail yards through the Queens Midtown Tunnel and then along Manhattan streets to Madison Square Garden…

Shootout At U.S. Consulate In Nuevo Laredo Part Of Cartel-Terrorist Attack Plan For Trump Inauguration – Jusicial Watch

A deadly shootout at the construction site of the new American Consulate occurred this week in a Mexican border town where Islamic terrorists and drug cartels plan to launch attacks against the U.S. during the period surrounding the presidential inauguration, high-level government sources tell Judicial Watch. An unknown number of gunmen fired multiple rounds adjacent to the new U.S. Consulate compound in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, a crime-infested city in the state of Tamaulipas that lies directly across from Laredo, Texas.

The Mexican military responded to the attack, law enforcement sources on both sides of the border confirm insisting that their identities be kept confidential for security reasons, and at least three soldiers were either killed or critically wounded in the ambush. A local newspaper in Tamaulipas reported that 13 people died during a shootout in Nuevo Laredo, referring to the deceased as heavily armed “delinquents” with an arsenal that includes 12 automatic weapons, a rocket launcher, grenade, loads of ammunition and drugs in three vehicles, one of them armored. The deceased have not been identified and Mexican authorities will continue to investigate, the article states, attributing the information to a press release issued by Mexico’s Defense Secretary.

Judicial Watch’s law enforcement and intelligence sources say the barrage outside what’s soon to be the new U.S. Consulate is connected to a broad operation between Islamic terrorists and Mexican drug cartels to send President-elect Donald Trump a message by engaging in attacks at border ports…

Document Reveals Clinton Global Initiative Is Shutting Down – Disobedient Media

Wastebook: Taxpayers Billed For Computers To Binge Watch ‘Desperate Housewives’, Fish On Treadmills – Washington Free Beacon

The federal government spent millions of taxpayer dollars studying if women can pick Barbie out of a lineup, creating robot flowers, and building a computer that binge watches Desperate Housewives, according to a new report on wasteful spending.

Sen. Jeff Flake (R., Ariz.) on Tuesday released Wastebook: PORKémon Go, the latest chronicle of waste in a series started by former Oklahoma Sen. Tom Coburn (R.). The report covers 50 items and over $5 billion in spending on outrageous government programs and frivolous projects.

“Within mere days, the national debt will top $20 trillion, the largest amount ever owed by any nation in history, and the federal government’s authority to borrow expires in March,” Flake wrote in the introduction to the report. “But rather than making a long overdue resolution to be fiscally responsible, the promises from Washington are to spend even more.”

The report revealed countless examples of questionable science spending, including $300,000 from the National Eye Institute and National Science Foundation studying whether women or men spent more time playing with Barbie dolls when they were children.

“The researchers’ intuition was that men may have played more with Transformers then [sic] Barbies when they were younger, and vice versa for women,” according to the report.

Researchers at Vanderbilt University also studied whether women were able to identify the real Barbie in a lineup of other dolls, challenging the “popular misconception that all Barbie dolls have the same face,” a researcher said…

Alibaba’s Jack Ma Chats With Trump About How To Create 1 Million U.S. Jobs Over 5 Years – CNBC

President-elect Donald Trump said he had a “great meeting” with Alibaba executive chairman Jack Ma on Monday, when they discussed 1 million new U.S. jobs.

Ma said that Alibaba’s expansion would focus on products like garments, wine and fruits, with a special focus on trade between the American midwest and southeast Asia.

“We’re focused on small business,” Ma told reporters. “We specifically talked about… supporting 1 million small businesses, especially in the Midwest of America. Small businesses on the platform selling products – agriculture products and America services – to China and Asia, because we’re pretty big in Asia.”

Where those jobs would come from is unclear. While an Alibaba spokesperson told CNBC before the meeting that the Chinese online retail giant company would create 1 million jobs over five years, Ma’s comments focused on supporting small businesses.

“Alibaba will create 1 million U.S. jobs by enabling 1 million American small businesses and farmers to sell American goods to China and Asian consumers on the Alibaba platform,” the company said in a statement.

Like Etsy or eBay, Alibaba enables third-party sellers in China to take their own businesses to the web. The company only had 36,446 full-time employees, almost all in China, as of March 31, according to SEC filings. But with more than 10 million active sellers as of 2015, Alibaba estimates its China retail marketplaces “contributed to the creation of over 15 million job opportunities.”…

Thousands Of U.S. Troops Arrive In Europe In “One Of Largest Deployments Since The Cold War” – Zero Hedge

Just days after we reported that the US had begun deploying some 2,800 tanks, trucks and other military equipment to Germany, from where they would be transported by rail and road to Eastern Europe as part of a buildup of NATO reinforcements against “Russian expansion”, the next U.S. deployment has made its way to Europe over the weekend, when some 4,000 U.S. troops arrived in the German port of Bremerheven, on their way to Wroclaw, Poland under a planned NATO operation to “reassure the alliance’s Eastern European allies” in the face of what NATO has dubbed mounting Russian aggression.

The American soldiers landed in Wroclaw, home to a key Nato and Polish air base in south-west Poland. The troops will be followed by the roughly 2,800 tanks and other pieces of military equipment which are currently en route from Germany.

The delivery of U.S. Abrams tanks, Paladin artillery, and Bradley fighting vehicles, as well as supporting troops, marks a new phase of America’s continuous presence in Europe, which will now be based on a nine-month rotation.

Why provoke Russia with yet another mass deployment? Because as NATO Major General Timothy McGuire told reporters, last week, when asked if the large deployment was meant to send a message to Russia, “The best way to maintain the peace is through preparation.” And while we are quoting, here is another good line from the movie Spice Like Us: “A weapon unused is a useless weapon.” The U.S. military industrial complex is doing everything in its power to make sure a lot of weapons are used in the future…

“It’s about time people understood that we’re the ones with the power and that the president is there to serve us, not the other way around“, a spokesperson for the group told The New York Times.

“We’re calling for a general strike that would include every single person involved in making motion pictures in Hollywood, starting with the actors and celebrities themselves and encompassing companies in charge of making props, movie memorabilia and even souvenir shops.”

Feds Still Don’t Know If Their Energy Data Is Reliable After 21 Years – Daily Caller

U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) officials refused to fix a major management flaw that allowed data manipulation to plague a federal lab for nearly two decades.

A USGS lab in Lakewood, Colo. never created an adequate system to prevent data manipulation, allowing the systemic problem to persist for 18 out of 19 years in existence, according to records reviewed by The Daily Caller News Foundation (DCNF) Investigative Group.

USGS could have resolved the issue as early as 2008 when the manipulation of data was first observed, a highly critical internal memo obtained by TheDCNF reveals.

“This should have been the laboratory’s first priority,” the October, 2015, memo stated.

Lab data was misrepresented for another six years, until 2014, when it was again flagged. The facility was closed in 2016 following several investigations.

Cosmetic in nature, the lab’s closure doesn’t actually solve the issue, since other USGS labs also lack a system that ensures data quality. The manipulated data impacted a variety of energy-related categories, such as the quality of coal reserves and uranium deposits. Affected projects represent $108 million in funding and the effects of the bad data could be “serious and far ranging,” a 2016 inspector general (IG) report said.

A so-called “quality management system” is necessary to ensure “quality standards” and ensure “that issued products are scientifically reliable,” according to a 2015 IG report.

Berkeley Murder Suspect Is Trans/Queer, Pro-Palestine, BLM-Supporting Social Justice Warrior – GotNews

Pablo Gomez, Jr., the first murder suspect of 2017 in the city of Berkeley, California, is a transsexual or “queer”, pro-Palestine, #BlackLivesMatter-supporting UC Berkeley student and “social justice warrior” (SJW), who is apparently studying “Chicanx/Latinx Studies.”

According to Berkeleyside:

Police are looking for a person described as armed and dangerous who authorities say is responsible for Berkeley’s first homicide of 2017.

After a seriously wounded woman flagged someone down for help just north of the UC Berkeley campus shortly before noon Friday, police ultimately located a “violent crime” scene and discovered the body of a person they say has not been identified in the 2400 block of Ashby Avenue.

Berkeleyside’s article was corrected to say that Gomez uses the pronoun “they” instead of “he” or “she”.

Gomez’ Facebook profile shows clear support for Palestine. He is also a #BlackLivesMatter supporter and protester, and his Tumblr account is full of far-left “social justice”-style content.

Gomez also posted arguments in favor of looting on his (her? their? xir? who knows!) Tumblr account.

British Government Will Not Request Prison Sentence For “Child Migrant” Who Raped 5-Year-Old Boy – Breitbart

The Attorney-General’s Office (AGO) will not request a prison sentence for a “child migrant” who raped a 5-year-old boy in late 2015, Breitbart London has established.

The migrant, who told the boy he would “break him into pieces” if he told anyone about the attack, was handed a non-custodial, three-year rehabilitation order by Judge Jonathan Bennett. Defence lawyer Alwyn Jones welcomed the ruling, saying he hoped it would “address the underlying issues this young man has.”

Any member of the public can request that the Law Officers of England and Wales appeal sentences of this nature under the Unduly Lenient Sentence scheme. Breitbart London reported last November that at least one unknown member of the public had done so in this case.

However, the AGO has since told Breitbart London that Tory MP Robert Buckland, the Solicitor-General, has “carefully reviewed the papers” and “concluded that if the sentence imposed on the offender was referred to the Court of Appeal, the Court would not increase the sentence”.

It was on this basis that Buckland “decided not the refer the case”. The AGO gave Breitbart London no indication as to its own assessment of the sentence’s suitability.

The original sentence was just one of a series of rulings which have encouraged accusations that the judiciary are “out of touch” with the ordinary public, with some calling for judges to be subject to retention elections, as in Japan and several American states…

Six Months After Brexit Vote, UK ‘Has World’s Top Economy’ – Newsbusters

In June, when UK voters decided to leave the European Union in the “Brexit” referendum, the U.S. press told the American people that the UK economy would suffer greatly as a result. Moody’s economist and max Hillary Clinton contributor Mark Zandi predicted that it would be “going down the rabbit hole.” At CBS News, Mellody Hobson said that “they’re acting as if a recession is a foregone conclusion.”

It’s one thing to predict a disaster that doesn’t happen. It’s quite another to predict bad news and have things turn out pretty darned well, which is thus far what has occurred. You’d never know it from reading U.S.-based establishment press coverage, but the UK economy, as reported in the UK Times, “ended last year as the strongest of the world’s advanced economies with growth accelerating in the six months after the Brexit vote.”

The result is so completely the opposite of what was predicted that the chief economist at England’s central bank, in a moment of refreshing candor that folks in the U.S. can only wish they would see coming from our Federal Reserve, has admitted that economists committed historically serious forecasting errors.

In another development we can only dream about here in the U.S., thanks to our partisan academic establishment, a British university has assessed forecasts of how the UK economy would perform outside of the EU, which were used to try to sway voters to remain in it, as “flawed and partisan.”…

Washington is beefing up security in the run up to President-elect Trump’s Jan. 20 inauguration, including the deployment of 5,000 National Guard troops downtown amid security concerns.

Mayor Muriel Bowser said despite increased security concerns, the city is prepared and ready for the event, she said Friday at a press conference with U.S. Secret Service and other security forces.

Riots, Looting In Mexico Over Spiking Gas Prices – Breitbart

Authorities arrested 48 men in connection with a protest that evolved into a large scale riot and the looting of numerous downtown stores. The protest appeared to be connected to Mexico’s most recent spike in gasoline prices.

Nuevo León Authorities confirmed the arrests of 48 rioters on Thursday night. The suspects allegedly assaulted other citizens, journalists, and caused widespread damage to private property as well as state, local and federal buildings.

Aldo Fasci, spokesman for Nuevo León’s security services, said the government supported the citizen’s right to peacefully protest but the government would go after the agitators who sparked the violence.

Much like in the rest of Mexico, the protests began in a peaceful manner. However, a team of agitators reportedly traveled to Nuevo Leon from the central part of Mexico and infiltrated the protest sparking the violence.

“The provocation was evident,” Fasci said. He stated that the individuals currently being interviewed by state officials speak with accents that are particular to the central part of Mexico.

In Monterrey, the looters struck at three separate shopping centers. as well as vandalizing. They also vandalized the Mayor’s Office, the Governor’s Office and other federal buildings.

The civil unrest began late last year when Mexico’s federal government announced a new gasoline price increase that took effect in early 2017…

Ford To Scrap Mexico Plant, Invest In Michigan; CEO Cites Trump Policies – Fox News

Before he’s even taken office, President-elect Donald Trump has proven to be quite the job creator.

Ford Motor Company announced Tuesday it will cancel a $1.6 billion plant planned for Mexico and will instead invest $700 million in a Michigan assembly plant, directly tying the decision to “pro-growth policies” championed by President-elect Donald Trump.

Trump had previously been critical of Ford’s plans to build in Mexico.

Megyn Kelly Leaving Fox News For NBC – Daily Caller

Megyn Kelly is leaving Fox News to take on a broad role at NBC News.

The Fox News star will host a daytime news show and anchor a Sunday night show, as well as regularly take part in breaking news and special event coverage at the network, the network announced in a statement Tuesday. The amount she was offered to move to NBC has not been disclosed.

Kelly was reportedly offered more than $20 million by Fox to stay on when her current contract expires, an offer other networks vying for her indicated they could not match. But she has hinted in recent interviews and in her new book, “Settle for More,” that she wouldn’t decide based on the highest bid; the broad role offered at NBC appears to have sweetened the deal.

One person briefed on Kelly’s discussions with NBC told The New York Times the network chairman, Andrew Lack, won her over by starting negotiations with an open-ended question about what she was seeking rather than immediately making some kind of offer. The resulting offer was tailored accordingly, offering for example, a daytime slot that would allow her to have dinner with her husband and see her kids off to school.

“Megyn is an exceptional journalist and news anchor, who has had an extraordinary career,” Lack said in the statement. “She’s demonstrated tremendous skill and poise, and we’re lucky to have her.”…

France Bans Parents From Spanking Their Kids – WNYW

France has banned spanking children. A new law went into effect at the start of the year.

The French Parliament approved the no spanking policy last month. It came after a European human rights body warned France that it wasn’t doing enough to prevent spanking and other kinds of corporal punishment of children.

In 2015, the Council of Europe said France was violating the European social charter because French law doesn’t prohibit parents and others from corporal punishment of children in a “sufficiently clear, binding and precise manner.”

While now illegal, the new law does not dictate what any punishment would be for violators.

Priest Accused Of Organising Orgies In Rectory, Pimping Out 15 Women – The Independent

An Italian priest is being investigated for allegedly organising orgies in his rectory and pimping out up to 15 lovers.

Catholic Father Andrea Contin, a parish priest in the northern city of Padua in Veneto, is under police investigation on suspicion of living off immoral earnings and psychological violence.

A variety of sex toys and videos, purportedly showing orgies taking place on the San Lazzaro church premises, have been seized after complaints from three female parishioners.

The 48-year-old also allegedly concealed pornographic home videos in covers bearing the names of various popes.

He is accused of farming out some of his lovers to men on wife-swapping websites, according to The Times.

The priest also allegedly took his female friends for stays at a naturist and swingers resort in Cap d’Agde on the southern French coast.

Complaints were reportedly first made to the local bishop last summer but church authorities did not police, saying they had not yet completed their own investigation.

One 49-year-old church volunteer, who says she had an affair with Father Contin and had sex with him in the rectory, told Il Mattino di Padova: “There were a lot of women hovering around him. I didn’t understand that at first, only later.”

Taxpayer-Funded £18 Million Tidal Energy Scheme Supposed To Power 600 Homes Stops Working After Just Three Months – Daily Mail

An £18million tidal energy scheme, which was supposed to power 600 homes, has stopped working after just three months.

The taxpayer-funded DeltaStream project in Pembrokeshire in Wales, was designed to use the flow of the ocean with a 39ft turbine installed on the seabed near Ramsey Island.

But the system developed a fault and stopped generating electricity just weeks after being turned on.

Its operator Tidal Energy Ltd has now gone into administration and is seeking a buyer.

The £18million ‘wet elephant’ received £8million funding of EU money and £500,000 from the Welsh Government.

The generator was fitted with a sonar radar to detect nearby wildlife including seals, porpoises and dolphins and would shut off if they came to close.

But the sonar developed an ‘intermittent fault’ in March 2016 – after being launched the previous December.

Development director Chris Williams of Tidal Energy Ltd said defended the massive cost of DeltaStream saying it was a ‘research’ project.

He said: ‘The project was a research and development project. It was never put in the water to generate massive amounts of electricity.

‘The purpose of the project was to provide the essential learning, new knowledge, know how and experience to progress the industry in Wales…

1,565 “Refugees” In U.S. Diagnosed With Active TB Since 2012, Three Times More Than Previously Reported – Breitbart

Between 2012 and 2015, 1,565 refugees were diagnosed with active tuberculosis (TB) in the United States, according to annual reports published by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

The CDC data, which has been public but obscure until now, shows that the number of refugees diagnosed with active TB in recent years is more than three times greater than previously reported by any media outlet.

The number of refugees diagnosed with TB in the United States has increased every year since 2012, the first year the CDC began publishing data on foreign-born cases of the disease by category, when 358 were diagnosed. In 2013, 396 refugees were diagnosed with TB. The following year, 2014, 402 refugees were diagnosed with TB, and in 2015, the number of refugees diagnosed with TB rose again to 409. Data for 2016 has not yet been reported.

In October, Breitbart News reported that 476 cases of active TB among refugees have been reported in the fifteen states that made that data available. Thirty-five states did not make the data available, even though they had apparently reported it to the CDC:

At least eight cases of active TB were diagnosed among refugees upon their arrival in Minnesota in 2015, bringing the total number of cases of active TB among refugees in Minnesota over the past six years to at least 304. That also increases the number of active TB cases diagnosed among refugees over the past six years in the fifteen states in which Breitbart News has been able to obtain data to 476, broken down as follows…

More than 1,000 migrants tried to jump a high double fence between Morocco and the Spanish enclave of Ceuta on Sunday in a violent assault that saw one officer lose an eye, local authorities said.

A group of 1,100 people from sub-Saharan Africa trying to reach Europe stormed the border fence just after 4 am (0300 GMT) on New Year’s Day in an “extremely violent and organised” way, said the central government’s representative office in Ceuta.

None however managed to get through, bar two who were badly injured and taken to hospital in Ceuta, the office said in a statement. A similar assault on December 9 saw more than 400 migrants enter the tiny enclave.

They tried “to force open some of the doors in the external fence, using iron bars, wire cutters and large stones with which they assaulted Moroccan forces and (Spanish) Guardia Civil (police) agents,” it added.

Five Spanish policemen and 50 members of the Moroccan forces were injured, including one who lost an eye, it said.

Judge Deals Obamacare Another Blow, Blocking Transgender And Abortion Protections – IJR

In what some may call yet another blow to the outgoing president’s legacy, just one day before the new policy was to take effect, a federal judge in Texas has blocked the “enforcement of an Obama administration policy seeking to extend anti-discrimination protections under the Affordable Care Act to transgender health and abortion-related services,” reports Reuters.

The injunction was granted due to U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor’s belief that it was in violation of the Administrative Procedure Act.

He also ruled that it was an infringement “on the rights of private healthcare providers under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act,” writing that if enforced, the new regulation would:

“…require them to perform and provide insurance coverage for gender transitions and abortions, regardless of their contrary religious beliefs or medical judgment.”

According to The Blaze, this ruling comes on the heels of Judge O’Connor blocking a “federal directive” that forced public schools to allow students to use whatever restroom matched their gender identity.

The Transgender Legal Defense & Education Fund director of impact litigation, Ezra Young, was deeply troubled by the judge’s current ruling, stating:

“Judge O’Connor’s conclusion that transgender people and persons who have had abortions are somehow excepted from protection is deeply troubling, legally specious, and morally repugnant.”…

Trump Team Causes Tizzy With Personnel Inquiries To Obama Agencies – Fox News

Inquiries from Donald Trump’s transition team to federal agencies about their work on hot-button issues like climate change and ‘violent extremism’ – and about the staffers involved – have spurred questions over what the incoming administration has planned for those programs.

His team, in the roughly seven weeks since the election, has posed such questions to the departments of Energy, State and Homeland Security.

Critics of President-elect Trump have suggested the inquiries are a sign his administration intends to gut key programs and punish the staffers involved. Republican defenders, though, say these concerns are overblown.

“The Democrats are trying to talk about anything other than their own problems, and currently they include stoking faux outrage about President-elect Trump rolling back women’s rights and firing bureaucrats who don’t agree with his environmental policy,” Republican strategist Joe Desilets said Wednesday.

The inquiries began earlier this month when transition team members submitted 74 questions to the Energy Department regarding climate change and other policy issues, including two about staffers who worked on President Obama’s climate agenda.

Energy officials have pledged to cooperate with the incoming Republican administration but didn’t provide the staffers’ names. The transition team hastily struck the questions, but not before a storm of criticism…

Muslim Migrant In Austria Stabs Woman For Reading Bible – Breitbart

An Afghan migrant attacked a woman at an asylum centre in Austria because she was reading a bible.

The attack took place in the town on Timelkam in the state of Upper Austria. The attacker was a 22-year-old migrant from Afghanistan who became annoyed that the 50-year-old woman had been invited by Christian residents to read the bible.

Austrian paper Kronen Zeitung says he ran into the kitchen where the woman was talking and attempted to stab her in her upper body. Her thick winter coat protected from serious harm, however she fell and injured her ear due the force of the blow.

Police arrived at the scene and arrested the migrant. He admitted he had overreacted, although he told police this was due to “personal problems”. He also stated that he had never seen the woman before the attack.

There have been numerous incidents of Christians coming under attack in migrant centres across Europe.

One charity said that over 700 Christians have been attacked in German asylums homes since May 2016, with the majority of perpetrators being Muslim.

Christian charity Open Doors said that 83 per cent of the cases reported included multiple assaults, while almost half of victims claim they have received death threats from fellow migrants. Another 44 said they had been sexually assaulted.

John Kerry’s Practiced Betrayal Of Friends – Wesley Pruden

John Kerry doesn’t come late to the betrayal of friends. He has had considerable practice.

In 1971, when he was a young lieutenant just back from Vietnam, where he was a decorated skipper of a Swift Boat patrolling the Mekong River, he appeared before the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee to pay his “respects” to the American soldiers, sailors and Marines he fought a war with.

Representing all those veterans, he told the senators, he wanted to talk about war crimes he said “were committed on a day-to-day basis with the full awareness of officers at all levels of command.”

Mr. Kerry proceeded to slander and defame hundreds of thousands of young Americans who were serving at their country’s call in a distant place where none wanted to be, doing their best at achieving the impossible.

Most of us who were there as observers and witnesses – I spent the better part of three years in Vietnam and Southeast Asia as a newspaper correspondent – saw ugly anger at work, the brutal way of war since Cain picked up a stone to slay his brother Abel. Occasional violence verged on atrocity, but we saw kindness and mercy in the midst of the noisy clangor of killing.

Mr. Kerry testified that he saw his country only at the work of atrocity, young men, many of them highly decorated, merciless in pursuit of barbarism. He told of swapping war stories with men who “personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged the countryside of South Vietnam in addition to the ravage of war, and the normal and very particular ravaging which is done by the applied bombing power of this country.”…

Israel Urges Jews To Leave France, Suspends “Working Ties” With Countries That Voted For UN Resolution – Zero Hedge

In an unexpected escalation that was not the result of Israel’s angry response to Friday’s UN vote which passed a resolution condemning the country’s settlements on occupied Palestinian territory, and which the U.S. refused to veto, Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman on Monday called on French Jews to leave their country to protest a Paris-hosted conference planned for next month aimed at restarting Palestine-Israel peace talks, Israeli daily Yedioth Ahronoth has reported.

According to Turkey’s Anadolu news agency, the Israeli government has repeatedly stated in recent months that it would not participate in the conference, which is scheduled to be held on Jan. 15 with the participation of representatives from 70 countries. Speaking at a meeting of his right-wing Yisrael Beiteinu party, Lieberman reportedly said: “Perhaps it’s time to tell the Jews of France, ‘This isn’t your country, this isn’t your land. Leave France and come to Israel’.”

“That’s the only response to this plot,” Lieberman added, in reference to the planned conference.

He also criticized the timing of the event, which will be held shortly before French presidential elections. “With France going to elections soon, this is not the time for a peace summit,” the newspaper quoted Lieberman as saying. “It [the planned conference] is a tribunal against the State of Israel.” He added: “This summit’s entire purpose is to undermine the State of Israel’s security and tarnish its good name.”

Holy Crap! A Christmas Story Is Racist! – Brian Anderson

If you’re like me, or millions of other Americans, part of your holiday tradition involves watching A Christmas Story not just because it’s a hilarious film but also because it’s pretty much the only thing on TV Christmas Day. Imagine my horror to find out this classic movie is really really racist. According to the liberal ding dongs at Salon, Ralphie, the leg lamp, the Red Ryder, and everything about this Christmas mainstay is representative of white supremacy.

I wish I were making this up, but this is an actual headline on Salon:

Dreaming of a white “Christmas Story”: A Yuletide classic’s “color-blind” racism

Under its surface, the innocent-seeming Reagan-era classic reveals much about America’s shifting racial narrative

You are probably wondering in what way this very innocent film is bubbling with racism. It turns out it’s because there aren’t enough black people in it and it “whitewashes” the struggles of black Americans:

The black characters in “A Christmas Story” are present but remain peripheral. They have no real voice or agency. They are shown in an perfectly inoffensive and neutral fashion. They are “present” in much the same way as the minor white characters who are not members of Ralphie’s family or his circle of friends. This is a perfect depiction of the nonwhite “other,” tailored to the conservative and superficial “color-blind” politics of the post-civil rights era.

This is an example of the “white racial frame” in action: People of color are present in a way that does not challenge the cultural and personal psychology of white racial innocence…

“It’s the most undemocratic thing a president can do, to tie the hands of his successor during the lame duck period. And what he did was so nasty; he pulled a bait-and-switch. He said to the American public: ‘Oh, this is all about the settlements deep in the West Bank.’ Yet he allowed his representative to the U.N. to abstain – which is really ‘for’ – a resolution that is basically ‘Jews can’t pray at the Western Wall; Jewish-Arab students can’t go to Hebrew university; Jewish and Arab patients can’t go to Hadassah hospital; Jews can’t live in the Jewish Quarter, where they’ve lived for thousands of years.’ And he’s gonna say: ‘Whoops! I didn’t mean that…'”

National Review Compares Donald Trump’s Sons To Uday And Qusay Hussein – American Thinker

Apparently Kevin Williamson at National Review has jumped over that deadly lemming cliff, along with millions of Trump-maddened New York liberals.

Williamson writes in NRO that:

“My own view is that Donald and Ivanka and Uday and Qusay are genuinely bad human beings and that the American public has made a grave error in entrusting its highest office to this cast of American Psycho extras. That a major political party was captured by these cretins suggests that its members are not worthy of the blessings of this republic…”

​Apparently NR editors didn’t read this piece, or worse, they read it and approved it.

That high-pitched grinding sound you hear is William F. Buckley drilling his way out of the grave to keep his beloved National Review from being kidnapped by a hysterical mob of establishment cons.

Uday and Qusay Hussein infamously dropped screaming human beings into industrial plastic shredders to kill them. Either Mr. Williamson is ignorant of that fact, or he has secret information about Barron and Eric Trump and Ivanka that we are not privy to. If so, I would like to ask Mr. Williamson and his neglectful editors to provide the evidence to the world. I am looking forward to Mr. Williamson’s next NR column, which will no doubt show us the cellphone pics.

It may be time for mass hara-kiri at the National Review, for descending into blithering idiocy on Christmas 2016.

Mr. Williamson wrote this NR column to argue for a return to civility in politics… and, in his next breath, committed what Jonah Goldberg has called “argumentum ad Hitleram.”…

Obama And Leftist Mayor Sneaking Muslim “Refugees” Into Austin, Texas Behind Governor’s Back – Conservative Base
.

While the news media provides wall-to-wall coverage of President-elect Donald Trump and his family – most of it negative stories – and continue to portray a failed president as having eight-years of achievement, they are once again purposely ignoring the federal government breaking laws, regulations and agreements regarding immigration.

After Governor Greg Abbott of Texas clearly stated that Texas is stopping the resettlement of so-called Syrian asylum-seekers, the President Barack Obama and his minions went behind Gov. Abbott’s back secretly colluding with the Democratic mayor of Texas’ most liberal city.

Austin, Texas, Mayor Steve Adler offered illegal aliens continued sanctuary and the Syrian Muslims are being provided with a welcome mat, according to a top nonprofit, non-government organization (NGO) based in the nation’s capital…

Rogue Elector Who Tried To Stop Trump Now Faces Prosecution – Daily Info

Last week, the Electoral College met to pass their votes for the next President of the United States; Donald Trump was officially elected and Hillary Clinton became the first woman to lose a presidential election twice.

But before all this, rogue Colorado elector Michael Baca attempted to start a movement to encourage his fellow electors to refuse to vote for Trump, and thereby steal the presidency from him.

Well, it obviously didn’t work. However, Baca likely never thought his fruitless efforts would backfire so tremendously, as he is now facing prison time.

According to MRC Blog, though Baca repeatedly claimed his movement had nothing to do with Hillary Clinton, it has now been revealed that he was actually in contact with her campaign the entire time, exchanging numerous texts and emails with the Clinton camp.

Baca was caught emailing Clinton advisor Jake Sullivan back and forth, and texting Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri. “I know I will have done everything I could to stop Trump but I am just a guy at the end of the day,” Baca wrote. “Thank you so very much and I’ll trust whatever happens was the right decision.”

Politico explained the method behind Baca’s madness:

The strategy was simple, if virtually impossible to execute: persuade Democratic and Republican electors wary of Trump to unite behind a mainstream Republican alternative such as Ohio Gov. John Kasich or 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney. If they could persuade 37 of the 306 Republicans on the Electoral College to ditch Trump, the election would have been thrown to the GOP-controlled House of Representatives in January…

Trump Will Be Able To Fill Over 100 Federal Court Positions Once He Takes Office – Daily Mail

Donald Trump will be able to fill more than 100 vacancies in the federal courts when he takes office next month.

Trump will walk into the White House as there are a total of 103 empty seats on courts, in addition to the lingering Supreme Court vacancy after the death of Antonin Scalia.

The triple-digit figure is staggeringly almost double the number President Barack Obama had to fill – 54 – when he replaced George W. Bush in the Oval Office.

Conservative leaders are already hoping Trump will pick people to further push their ideals on a number of key issues – such as gun control, women’s health and rights, immigration, and voter restriction, the Washington Post reports.

‘I’m optimistic he’ll come at this right out of the gate,’ Judicial Crisis Network chief counsel Carrie Severino said.

‘Every president can expect to make a huge impact. [Trump] is unique in having campaigned really hard on this issue – the significance of the courts, and of the Supreme Court in particular.’

Severino’s group has been staunchly against many of President Obama’s court appointments.

The Republicans refusal to confirm Obama’s choice to fill the crucial vacancy on the Supreme Court, Merrick Garland, has been seen by Democrats as a deliberate ploy organized in the hope the GOP took back the White House.

Democrats point the finger at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Judiciary Committee chairman Sen. Charles E. Grassley for the stalling…

Hillary’s Horribles – Derek Hunter

Yes, I know it’s Christmas, and if there’s one day where you should let politics go it’s today. But sometimes things happen that can’t go unremarked upon, no matter the day.

Such has been a series of events involving supporters of Hillary Clinton.

Yes, Clinton won the popular vote. Who cares? That was never, nor should it ever be, the measure that determines who is elected president. She knew it. Her supporters knew it. Her campaign knew it. They just chose not to campaign that way.

Call it arrogance or ignorance, but Hillary spent more time in California, a state she’d have won comfortably no matter what, than Wisconsin and Michigan in the final days of the election. She and her team made that choice, consciously. Just like she chose to call half of Trump’s supporters “a basket of deplorables” who, even worse, were “irredeemable.”

No one made her do that.

That became a rallying cry for Trump – and a way of life for many Clinton supporters.

There’s an old saying that goes, “If you want to know what Democrats are up to, just take a look at what they’re accusing Republicans of doing.” That’s exactly the case when it comes to those hardcore Clinton supporters who simply refuse to accept they lost; that people who have different opinions to theirs exist.

The fiery rhetoric coming from vehemently “progressive” Clinton supporters since the election has reached the point of instability. It seems as though some is aimed at inspiring some unhinged person to try to kill Donald Trump…

Kim Jong Un is the Grinch who stole Christmas.

North Korea’s tubby tyrant wants the few Christians in the hermit state to spread cheer only to celebrate his grandma, Kim Jong-suk – not the birth of Jesus.

Jong-suk – who was born on Christmas Eve in 1919 – was an anti-Japanese guerrilla and Communist activist, wife of North Korea’s first dictator, Kim Il Sung, and former leader Kim Jong Il’s mother.

Many pay homage to the “Sacred Mother of the Revolution,” who died under mysterious circumstances in 1949, by visiting her tomb.

At Least 27 People Shot In Leftist-Controlled Chicago Over Christmas Weekend – Daily Mail

Chicago’s homicides have increased by more than 50 per cent since last year, as at least 27 people were shot over the Christmas weekend.

Seven of those individuals were fatally shot within the last 48 hours, the Chicago Police Department (CPD) reported.

Officer Jose Estrada, a spokesman with the CPD told the New York Times on Sunday that the total number of homicides this year was 745, a 56 per cent increase from 476 around the same time last year.

The weekend’s most recent shooting resulted in the death of an 18-year-old male who was shot multiple times in the neck and back while he was driving at 1.30am on Sunday on the city’s Southwest Side, NBC 5 Chicago reported.

He was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

No suspects are in custody for his murder.

Last year’s Christmas weekend saw 30 people shot and six of those died.

This year was the first time in nearly 20 years that more than 700 homicides had been recorded in the city, The Chicago Tribune reported this month.

Officer Estrada said the total number of shooting victims so far stood at 4,252, up 47 per cent from 2,884 at the same time in 2015.

The majority of the individuals shot were men under the age of 30.

Forty-two homicides have been recorded for December compared to 33 around the same time last year, the Tribune reported.

Sorry, But Our Fight Against Liberal Fascism Has Only Just Begun – Kurt Schlichter

I wish I could tell you that, having dodged the naggy bullet that was Felonia Milhous von Pantsuit, we can now spend the next four years being left alone. But that’s not in the cards. Liberals won’t – because they can’t – pause to reflect on how they should stop being such insufferable jerks and live with us normals in peace and mutual respect. Instead, they are doubling down on their gambit for unrestrained power over every aspect of our lives, fueled by a hatred for Donald Trump that is, in reality, a hatred for us.

Remember, they really do hate us. Just ask them.

Just watch what they do. They will always side against us – even when a professional scammer stages a fake “hate crime” on an airplane. They will side with the hoaxer even though every single “Trump-inspired hate crime” – and almost all others – turns out to be a hoax. Every. Single. One

Facebook Threats Against Trump Land Crazed Leftist In Jail – Sun-Sentinel

A Broward man’s Facebook postings have landed him in jail after federal authorities said he threatened to kill or harm President-elect Donald Trump.

Kevin Keith Krohn, 59, was arrested Thursday at his Pembroke Pines home after law enforcement informed the U.S. Secret Service agents who protect Trump about the postings.

“I’m just glad Obama didn’t take all our gunz! I see a good use for one now,” Krohn wrote online above a picture of Trump that read, “He’s not my president / He’s an enemy of the state,” agents wrote in court records.

Krohn posted his remarks in a thread of comments related to Trump’s holiday season stay at his Palm Beach home, according to court records.

Agents said Krohn posted another comment that read: “The EXPEDITER of Trump! He will never last long!” above a picture of a man in camouflage holding a scoped sniper rifle.

When another Facebook user asked what he meant, agents said Krohn responded: “Keep yer eyes open!”

Agents said they were able to track Krohn to his home in Pembroke Pines and he was arrested there on Thursday evening. He could face a federal charge of threatening to take the life of the president-elect or inflect bodily harm. The offense carries a maximum punishment of five years in federal prison and a $250,000 fine.

“Krohn became confrontational when asked if he made the statements threatening the PEOTUS [President-elect of the United States]… Krohn declared any statements he made were an expression of his First Amendment rights,” agents wrote in court records…

Landlord Caught On Camera Having Sex In Tenant’s Bed Is Illegal Alien – American Mirror

A Colorado landlord who was busted on camera having sex in a tenant’s bed did not show up for his Thursday court appearance because the illegal immigrant was in the custody of Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials.

KKTV reports:

Carlos Quijada was scheduled to be in court Thursday, but didn’t show up because he’s still in U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody. An El Paso County judge still signed a warrant for his arrest for not appearing. ICE didn’t notify the courts that they had Quijada in custody.

Quijada faces felony trespassing charges after he was recorded in late November having sex on the bed Logan Pierce shares with his wife at Skyway Condominiums in Colorado Springs.

“I got a notification from one of the cameras on lunch the other day that it detected noise and that was strange because both of us work all day, every day,” Pierce told the news site.

“I opened up the camera and kind of had to like quit the program and… restart it again because I really didn’t believe what I saw,” he said.

The video allegedly show Quijada have sex with a woman on his bed, then use his wife’s wedding dress to clean up his mess.

“I guess the first thing that went through my mind was like complete and utter disbelief,” said Pierce, who immediately called his wife and police about the incident.

“I said, ‘Honey, I think we need to move, like, immediately,’” he said.

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?…

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….

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…

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…

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.

The development comes after a new YouGov Poll

There were approximately 330 polls analyzed in the assessment of PPD Pollster Scorecard Grade for the YouGov Poll. Worth noting, not all polls conducted and analyzed are pertinent to the specific data and results.

Predictive Value

The YouGov Poll predicted the correct outcome more than 90% of the time over its lifetime before 2014. From 2014 to 2016, YouGov was not a particularly accurate pollster, missing the eventual winner and the margin in several key battleground states, including North Carolina.

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.

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

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.

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.

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…

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…

Rep. Chaffetz: FBI’s Notes From Hillary Interview Keep Changing – Washington Examiner

The FBI has handed Congress two copies of notes from its interview with Hillary Clinton about her private email server, but according to the chairman of the House Oversight Committee, the two sets of notes aren’t consistent with each other.

“The… thing that is stunning to me, which I found out last night, is the FBI gave us one set of documents. Then we asked them, and they… gave us a second copy in a classified setting. But they’re different,” said committee Chairman Rep. Jason Chaffetz in a Monday morning interview on MSNBC.

The Utah Republican said he had no explanation, and that he would have to seek one from the FBI. “We have a second set of documents that’s now different. You turn them page by page, and they’re different. I don’t know why that happens,” Chaffetz added…

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.”…

Court Orders State Department To Speed Up Release Of 14,900 Emails Hillary Failed To Disclose To FBI – New York Daily News

Nearly 15,000 emails previously not disclosed by Hillary Clinton were unearthed by the FBI as part of its investigation into the Democratic nominee’s private server, lawyers for the State Department told a federal judge Monday.

The State Department said it is in the process of reviewing the 14,900 emails, which is nearly 50% more than the 30,000 that Clinton’s lawyers had previously provided to the agency.

State Department lawyers told U.S. District Court Judge James E. Boasberg Monday that they expected to release the first batch of the new emails in mid-October, raising the prospect new messages sent or received by Clinton could become public just before November’s presidential election…

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. Additionally, the Kingdom of Bahrain is reported to have given between $50,000 and $100,000 to the Clinton Foundation, while Bahrain Petroleum gave $25,000 to $50,000…

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.

Deputy Prime Minister Mehmet Simsek, who is in Gaziantep, said that Ankara would not “yield” to the terrorists…

Hillary’s Top Aide Was Working As Assistant Editor Of Radical Muslim Journal When It Blamed America For 9/11 – Daily Mail

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.

In a staggering sign of vulnerability, Bill Clinton told a room full of the foundation’s staff on Thursday that he will resign from the Clinton Foundation board if Hillary Clinton wins the White House in November…

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.

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 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.

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.
