Activist Judge Releases Racist, Black Thug Who Beat And Tortured Disabled, White Man On Facebook Live – Breitbart

The first of four Chicago suspects accused of beating and torturing a disabled teenager and broadcasting the attack on Facebook has pleaded guilty, but a judge let her off without prison time, a report says.

Brittany Covington, 19, pleaded guilty to a hate crime in court on Friday, according to the Chicago Tribune.

The suspect also “pleaded guilty to aggravated battery and intimidation charges. As part of a plea deal, prosecutors dropped additional charges, including kidnapping,” the Tribune said.

Despite the guilty plea, Cook County Circuit Judge William Hooks released Covington without jail time. Telling Covington, “Do not mess this up,” Judge Hooks imposed 200 hours of community service and banned Covington from using social media and having contact with her co-defendants for four years.

The judge did not assign jail time because, he said, “I’m not sure if I did that you’d be coming out any better.”

Hooks insisted that his sentence would give Covington the chance to put her life on a productive path…

NFL Ticket Prices Fall To An Incredible $4 Apiece In Buffalo – Independent Journal Review

The NFL has been hit hard ever since more players than ever protested during the national anthem in retaliation to President Donald Trump criticizing those who kneeled.

Ratings have crashed, fans have boycotted and ticket sales have plummeted. The league has become one of the most divisive brands in the country, and Trump hasn’t stopped putting pressure on Roger Goodell and the NFL to do something about the protests.

Despite all of this, the protests have continued.

Then, the NFL pulled donations away from military charities and breast cancer awareness causes to instead donate to social justice causes. Eric Reid, a San Francisco 49ers safety and frequent protester, revealed the details of the funding, which will see a whopping $89 million invested in social justice causes.

Now, ticket sales for the upcoming game between the 3-9 Indianapolis Colts and the 6-6 Buffalo Bills, which will take place in Buffalo, are going for a whopping $4. And Vivid Seats has plenty of tickets available for the game on Sunday…

New Supreme Court Ruling A Boon To Trump’s Bid To Defend DACA Cancellation – Daily Caller

A closely divided Supreme Court allowed President Donald Trump to shield documents relating to the cancellation of DACA, an Obama-era amnesty initiative that extended temporary legal status to foreign nationals who illegally entered the country as children.

The Court divided five to four along ideological lines in a late Friday ruling that temporarily permits the administration to conceal records relating to the program. Justice Stephen Breyer dissented from the decision, joined by Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan.

The ruling is likely a boon to Trump’s efforts to defend DACA’s termination.

Scientist Faces Criminal Charges Because Environmentalists Didn’t Like His Work – Daily Caller

A prominent glaciologist is facing criminal charges in Argentina after he released a glacier survey that angered environmental activists because it didn’t result in the closing of a gold mine.

A federal judge charged Ricardo Villalba, who headed the Institute of Snow, Ice and Environmental Research (IANIGLA), with “abusing his authority and violating his duty as a civil servant,” Nature.com reported.

The charges stem from a lawsuit brought by Argentine environmentalists who claim Villalba’s 2011 glacier survey “did not comply with a law enacted in 2010 that was designed to give extra protections to Argentina’s glaciers,” Nature.com reported. The court put a $300,000 lien on his property.

20 States Call For End To Forced Unionism – Washington Free Beacon

Aiming to help that process along, Conyers endorsed his son, John Conyers III, to replace him, setting up a potential Conyers-family showdown for the seat…

Clinton Aides Who Lied To The FBI Faced No Charges After Being Questioned By Recently Fired Anti-Trump Agent – Daily Caller

The FBI agent who was fired from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation team for sending anti-Donald Trump text messages conducted the interviews with two Hillary Clinton aides accused of giving false statements about what they knew of the former secretary of state’s private email server.

Neither of the Clinton associates, Cheryl Mills and Huma Abedin, faced legal consequences for their misleading statements, which they made in interviews last year with former FBI section chief Peter Strzok.

But another Strzok interview subject was not so lucky.

Michael Flynn, the former national security adviser, pleaded guilty last week to lying during an interview he gave on Jan. 24 to Strzok and another FBI agent. Circa journalist Sara Carter reported on Monday that Strzok took part in that interview with the retired lieutenant general.

At the time, Strzok was the FBI’s top investigator on the fledgling investigation into Russian interference in the presidential campaign…

Former Florida Democratic Rep. Corrine Brown was sentenced on Monday to five years in prison for mail, wire and tax fraud involving a sham charity.

A jury convicted Brown of stealing money from a bogus charity, One Door For Education, which purported to give scholarships to poor children but instead filled the coffers of Brown and her associates.

Federal prosecutors said she and a top aide commited fraud by using donations for lavish parties and trips. The aide and another official later accepted a plea deal and testified against Brown, who served in Congress for nearly 25 years.

Trump Tees Up Welfare Reform – Washington Examiner

Republicans searching for their next major task after tax reform may have found their answer, and it’s not infrastructure.

Over the past few weeks, President Trump has been talking up reform of anti-poverty programs, and House leaders have begun preliminary talks with his administration on what they could accomplish through a welfare overhaul, aides say. The White House, meanwhile, is preparing an administrative reordering of the welfare system regardless of whether congressional Republicans act.

Trump has suggested more than once that welfare reform might be the next big legislative item on his agenda, although he has also indicated that a major infrastructure bill or another attempt at healthcare legislation could be next up on the docket.

For their part, House Republicans would be willing forge ahead on welfare reform. The GOP conference and outside conservative groups share the goal of changing anti-poverty programs to encourage or require work…

Trump Administration Pulls U.S. Out Of UN Global Compact On Migration – The Hill

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Sunday announced the Trump administration is pulling out of a United Nations-led Global Compact on Migration (GCM), claiming it could undermine the enforcement of U.S. immigration laws.

“The United States has decided to end participation in the UN process to develop a Global Compact on Migration (GCM),” Tillerson said in a statement.

The U.S. has participated in the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants, a 2016 agreement to manage international migration, which was in the process of being adopted as a global compact in 2018.

Tillerson, however, said that the compact “contains a number of policy goals that are inconsistent with U.S. law and policy.”

Puerto Rican Government Hands Out $100 Million In Bonuses After Pleading For $94 Billion In Hurricane Relief – Washington Times

Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rossello Nevares last month asked federal taxpayers to shell out $94 billion to pay for the territory’s recovery from Hurricane Maria – then turned around and paid out about $100 million in Christmas bonuses to island government employees.

The governor’s aides say the bonuses are a longstanding tradition and part of the law, and were planned for in the budget approved last summer.

But that budget came well before Hurricanes Irma and Maria slammed into Puerto Rico, leaving much of the territory in ruin and leaving the government begging for federal assistance.

The island’s financial oversight board, created by Congress as part of a deal to bail the government out of a potential debt default last year, called the payments “imprudent” and said the hurricanes should have forced the governor to rethink his decisions.

And the payments could dent Mr. Rossello Nevares’ efforts to get Capitol Hill to pony up for the recovery…

Republicans Prepare For War With FBI, DOJ: To File Contempt Action Over Anti-Trump Bias – Zero Hedge

Five weeks ago, House Speaker Paul Ryan accused the DOJ and FBI of “stonewalling” the House Intelligence Committee’s wide-ranging subpoena for all pertinent information about how the largely unsubstantiated “Trump dossier” played into the DOJ’s decision to launch the infamous Trump collusion investigation.

At the time, the speaker said the agency was preparing to turn over the information requested by the committee, but despite his assurances, the promised documents never materialized.

Then yesterday, thanks to a series of coordinated media leaks, Nunes learned – at the same time as the broader public – about the reassignment of Peter Strzok, a senior Mueller aide who had played a critical role in the DOJ’s original collusion investigation. And before that, Strzok helped lead the FBI’s probe into Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified information.

Booming Economy: New York Fed GDP Reading Hits 3.9 Percent – Breitbart

The New York Federal Reserve’s tool for forecasting gross domestic product (GDP) hit its highest point ever on Friday, pointing to a fourth-quarter GDP growth of 3.93 percent.

The number is so high that the New York Fed’s “Nowcasting Report” had to be rescaled to allow for such a high reading. Prior to the most recent quarter, the Nowcast has never before predicted GDP above 3.2 percent and rarely ever above 3 percent.

The Nowcast uses the most recent economic figures to try to get a real-time reading of economic output. It is updated weekly. Last week’s number was pushed up by good news about employment, inventories, and new home sales. Low inflation was a drag on the number.

The message from the New York Fed is simple: the economy is booming.

The economy has grown at greater than 3 percent for every full quarter that Donald Trump has been president. It grew at just 1.24 percent in the first quarter of the year as the country transitioned from the Obama administration to the Trump administration…

It didn’t turn out that way.

As Ryan left the convenience store on Sept. 23, he noticed out of the corner of his eye a couple sitting on the grass against a cement wall. It appeared the man and woman were shooting up heroin in broad daylight behind the convenience store.

Ryan turned on his body camera and approached the couple, but he wasn’t prepared for what he saw. The woman was in the middle of injecting a needle into her companion’s arm. Then he noticed the woman was pregnant.

Matt Lauer Wants $30 Million From NBC After His Firing For Sexual Harassment – Fox News

In 2016 he renegotiated a deal with the network, but the question now is whether or not a morality clause embedded within the contract allows the network to withhold the remainder of his payment, which would be roughly $30 million.

DOJ Weighing Federal Charges In Kate Steinle Murder Case After Not Guilty Verdict – Fox News

House Committee Advances Legislation Allowing Concealed Guns In All 50 States – Zero Hedge

Though it was mostly overlooked amid the Senate’s crucial procedural vote on tax reform, the House Judiciary Committee late yesterday voted 19-11 in favor of a highly controversial bill, dubbed the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017, which would amend the federal criminal code to allow the concealed transport of handguns across state lines, so long as both states allow it.

Trump Administration Halts Taxpayer-Funded Purchases Of Iranian Nuclear Materials – Washington Free Beacon

The Trump administration has put a stop to U.S. purchases of nuclear materials from Iran, a policy that first began under the Obama administration in an attempt to ensure Iran remains in compliance with the landmark nuclear deal, according to U.S. officials who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon.

The Obama administration sparked controversy in Congress and the national security world when it announced in late 2016 that it would spend more than $8 million dollars to purchase Iranian heavy water, a nuclear byproduct, in a bid to keep the Islamic Republic in line with restrictions on these materials imposed under the nuclear agreement.

The Obama administration, in what lawmakers described as a “potentially illegal” taxpayer-funded transaction, paid at least $8.6 million to purchase 32 metric tons of heavy water from Iran. The nuclear byproduct can be used to produce weapons-grade plutonium, which is why restrictions were initially placed on Tehran’s stockpile…

Q3 GDP Revised Up To 3.3%, Highest In 3 Years – Zero Hedge

After the BEA estimated that US GDP rose an already impressive 3.0% in Q3, moments ago the Department of Commerce revised its estimate for third quarter growth to 3.3% annualized, higher than the 3.2% print expected, the highest since the third quarter of 2014. On a Y/Y basis, GDP rose by 2.3%, the highest since Q3 2015.

The increase in real GDP reflected increases in consumer spending, inventory investment, business investment, and exports. A notable offset to these increases was a decrease in housing investment. Imports, which are a subtraction from GDP, decreased.

The increase in consumer spending reflected increases in spending on both goods and services. The increase in goods was primarily attributable to motor vehicles. The increase in services primarily reflected increases in health care, financial services and insurance, and recreation services.

Winning: Donald Trump Calls Democrats’ Budget Bluff On Amnesty – Breitbart

President Donald Trump has called Democratic leaders’ bluff on their mumbled threats to block the 2018 budget if it did not include the unpopular ‘Dreamer’ amnesty.

Trump’s high-pressure tactics on Tuesday prompted the Democrats to quit the scheduled 3 pm high-visibility sit-down with GOP leaders at the White House, where they would have been forced to escalate their threats or else to admit their bluff to the waiting media.

The retreat left amnesty advocates in the lurch, despite months – and years – of media-magnified claims that the American public wants a no-strings amnesty for the 3 million ‘dreamers,’ plus their millions of chain-migration relatives.

Trump’s win sets the stage for debate over funding for the border wall and then – perhaps – for a February debate about an immigration rewrite that benefits Americans.

Trump dared “them to shut the government” and they folded, said Mark Krikorian, director of the Center for Immigration Studies…

SHOCKER: RINO McCain Sides With Democrats, Denounces Trump’s Pocahontas Remark – The Hill

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Tuesday said President Trump insulted the sacrifice of Native American veterans when he made a “Pocahontas” crack at a White House ceremony honoring them.

“Our nation owes a debt of gratitude to the Navajo Code Talkers, whose bravery, skill & tenacity helped secure our decisive victory over tyranny & oppression during WWII,” McCain tweeted.

“Politicizing these genuine American heroes is an insult to their sacrifice.”

Trump referred to Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) as “Pocahontas” at the event on Monday, an insult that critics have condemned for being inappropriate and having racial undertones.

Navajo Vet On Trump Pocahontas Comment: “The Marines Made Us Yell ‘Geronimo’ When We Jumped Out Of Planes, And That Didn’t Offend Me Either” – Daily Caller

President Trump began a media firestorm Monday after referring to Elizabeth Warren as “Pocahontas” at a ceremony honoring Navajo code talkers.

“I just want to thank you because you are very, very special people. You were here long before any of us were here. Although, we have a representative in Congress who has been here a long time, longer than you, they call her ‘Pocahontas.’”

Warren responded to the president, calling the comments a “racial slur.”

At Monday’s White House press briefing, Sarah Sanders was asked about the comments and if she thought they were offensive. Sanders said:

“I think what most people find offensive is Senator Warren lying about her heritage to advance her career.”

The missile, believed to be an ICBM by the Pentagon based on initial assessments, was launched from Sain Ni, North Korea and flew roughly 620 miles before landing in the Sea of Japan.

South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency, which first reported the launch, said the missile launch happened around 3 a.m. local time in North Korea.

Iran Deploying Warships To Atlantic Ocean, Gulf Of Mexico – Washington Free Beacon

Iranian military leaders announced on Tuesday the country will send a fleet of warships into the Atlantic Ocean en route to the Gulf of Mexico, where the Islamic Republic aims to solidify ties with several Latin American states, according to the commander of Iran’s navy.

Following orders from Iran’s supreme leader, the newly installed commander of its navy, Rear Adm. Hossein Khanzadi, announced a fleet of Iranian warships would soon be making their way into the Atlantic Ocean, despite what Iran claims is opposition by U.S. officials.

As Iran continues to deploy military assets to Syria, Yemen, Lebanon, and other Middle Eastern hotspots, its navy is placing a renewed focus on displaying force in international waters, according to the military leaders.

According to the poll:

Alabama Republican Roy Moore has reopened a 49–44 lead over Democrat Doug Jones in the race for U.S. Senate. In Change Research’s third poll since the sexual misconduct allegations against Moore first surfaced on November 9, we found that he has completely erased the 3-point lead Jones had opened up in mid-November. Moore’s lead is now just as large as it was just after the story broke.

Judicial Watch Finds More Evidence Obama’s EPA Broke Federal Law – Daily Caller

Former President Barack Obama’s EPA used a social media platform to secretly promote the agency’s policies in violation of federal law, according to a conservative watchdog group in Washington, D.C.

The agency used Thunderclap, a platform that shares messages across Facebook and Twitter, to recruit outside groups to generate support for various environmental policies.

Federal law prohibits agencies from engaging in propaganda. It also forbids agencies from using federal resources to conduct grassroots campaigns that prod U.S. citizens into browbeating lawmakers to act on pending legislation.

The MNF clash between Houston and Baltimore drew only a 6.0 in metered markets. That makes it the lowest rated MNF contest of the year for the NFL and ESPN. It also makes President Trump’s Tuesday morning Twitter shot at the league, incredibly well-timed and accurate:

Court Documents: Roy Moore Accuser Has ‘Violent Nature,’ History Of Criminal Fraud Against Own Family – Breitbart

Court documents related to Tina Johnson, an Alabama woman who claims that Republican senatorial candidate Roy Moore groped her in his office decades ago, may raise questions about Johnson’s motives in making the accusation.

The documents, reviewed by Breitbart News, show that Moore represented Johnson’s mother in a nasty custody case for Johnson’s then 12-year-old son, Daniel Sitz. In the case, Johnson was repeatedly painted by Moore’s client as an unfit, absent, and unstable mother and was accused of taking her son from his elementary school against his will. Johnson’s mother was ultimately awarded custody in the case.

One affidavit signed by Johnson’s mother while she was represented by Moore accused Johnson of having a “violent nature” and noted that she “has been treated by a psychiatrist when she was approximately 15 years of age.” Johnson was a teenage mother.

Separate criminal documents show that, as late as 2010, Johnson was arrested and pled guilty to felony fraud charges related to checks belonging to a family member…

CPS Grabs Newborn Baby From A Disabled Christian Mother After The Parents Expressed A Desire Not To Vaccinate – Washington Standard

Actually, a large number of families from all over the country have moved to Idaho in recent years specifically because of the vaccine issue.

In Idaho, there is no legal requirement to vaccinate your children, and so no child should ever be taken away because parents do not intend to vaccinate. Unfortunately, that appears to be what happened in this case.

Rep. Betty McCollum, D-Minn., introduced legislation Nov. 14 – co-sponsored by nine other Democrats – calling on the State Department to “prevent United States tax dollars from supporting the Israeli military’s ongoing detention and mistreatment of Palestinian children.”

In a news release about the proposed legislation, McCollum said: “This legislation highlights Israel’s system of military detention of Palestinian children and ensures that no American assistance to Israel supports human rights violations… Peace can only be achieved by respecting human rights, especially the rights of children. Congress must not turn a blind eye the unjust and ongoing mistreatment of Palestinian children living under Israeli occupation.”…

ESPN Crumbling After Losing $1 Billion, Facing More Layoffs – Daily Caller

It will not be a happy Thanksgiving for some ESPN employees. The sports network, which often masquerades as a political opinion site in the Trump era, is facing major cutbacks again due to budget shortfalls.

The news was first reported Monday by The Washington Post in an exposé involving dozens of men and women who worked on “Charlie Rose.”

The newspaper said eight women – three of them named – gave details that indicate a modus operandi for putting women in awkward sexual situations.

A trend among the women who spoke to the Post includes:

* Mr. Rose would allegedly grab new employees by the leg to “gauge” their reactions.
* Mr. Rose would invite women to work at his home…

Judge Roy Moore is once again leading ultra-liberal Democrat Doug Jones in the PredictIt Market.

Via PredictIt:

Before the Washington Post story broke, Roy Moore was almost a lock to win at 89 percent in PredictIt’s Alabama Senate race prediction market. After the allegations surfaced, Moore’s odds dropped to 59 percent that day. He remained a slight favorite over Doug Jones, who also saw a significant bump on the news, until Monday when a fifth woman came forward with allegations against Moore.

On Monday afternoon, for the first time in the race, PredictIt traders had Doug Jones in the lead at 47 percent to Moore’s 38 percent.

Notorious Predator Bill Clinton Facing New Accusations Of Sexual Assault By Four Women – Daily Mail

Edward Klein is the former editor in chief of the New York Times Magazine and the author of numerous bestsellers including his fourth book on the Clintons, Guilty as Sin, in 2016. His latest book is All Out War: The Plot to Destroy Trump was released on October 30, 2017.

Bill Clinton is facing explosive new charges of sexual assault from four women, according to highly placed Democratic Party sources and an official who served in both the Clinton and Obama administrations.

The current accusations against the 71-year-old former president – whose past is littered with charges of sexual misconduct – stem from the period after he left the White House in 2001, say the sources.

Attorneys representing the women, who are coordinating their efforts, have notified Clinton they are preparing to file four separate lawsuits against him.

As part of the ongoing negotiations, the attorneys for the women are asking for substantial payouts in return for their clients’ silence…

The Hotel From Leftist Hell – Daniel Greenfield

The world’s first leftist anti-Trump hotel is here. You won’t be surprised to learn that it’s opening in Washington D.C. (with additional locations in Seattle, Hong Kong and San Francisco.)

And you’ll be even less surprised to hear that it’s a luxury hotel with organic mattresses and crystal healing. Instead of a Bible, there’ll be a United Nations pamphlet. The minibar will have an activist toolkit. Staffers will be hired for their commitment to leftist social justice. (That’s technically discrimination, but it’s not as if leftists live by the laws that they impose on the rest of us.)

The Eaton Workshop is for a “global tribe of innovators, progressive thinkers and creatives”, “thought leaders”, “provocative minds” and “kindred spirits”. There will be “dialogue and debate”, but no one to debate with because the hotel is only for leftists “who are thinking outside the box”.

But not so far outside the box that they might question leftist dogma or use Airbnb. The People’s Republic of Eatonistan will cater to “a diversity of fields and backgrounds as well as gender and ethnicity” as long as they can afford to stay at a luxury hotel…

Calls Grow For Arrest Of Gloria Allred Over Forged Document – Gateway Pundit

Following The Gateway Pundit’s viral story on Judge Roy Moore’s alleged signature inside accuser Beverly Young Nelson’s yearbook, more evidence suggested it was a forgery. On Monday, CNN published photos of the signature showing two different inks.

The signature says “To a sweeter more beautiful girl I could not say, ‘Merry Christmas.’ Love, Roy Moore DA, 12-22-77, Olde Hickory House.” Strangely, “To a sweeter more beautiful girl I could not say, ‘Merry Christmas.’ Love, Roy,” is written in black ink, while “Moore DA, 12-22-77, Olde Hickory House,” is in blue ink.

And then there’s this:

Judge Roy Moore was not the DA in 1978. He would not have signed a signature with DA after it. Moore insists this is not his signature. The Moore campaign is demanding Gloria Allred turn over the fraudulent signature in the yearbook for analysis.

Saudi Arabia Offers Arrested Royals A Deal: Your Freedom For Lots Of Cash – Zero Hedge

As we noted shortly after the Crown Prince’s purge of potential rivals within Saudi Arabia’s sprawling ruling family, while the dozens of arrests were made under the pretext of an “anti-corruption crackdown”, Mohammed bin Salman’s ulterior motive was something else entirely: Replenishing the Kingdom’s depleted foreign reserves, which have been hammered for the past three years by low oil prices, with some estimating that the current purge could potentially bring in up to $800 billion in proceeds.

Furthermore, the geopolitical turmoil unleashed by the unprecedented crackdown helped push oil prices higher, creating an ancillary benefit for both the kingdom’s rulers and the upcoming IPO of Aramco.

House Passes Sweeping Tax Bill In Huge Victory For GOP – The Hill

“Passing this bill is the single biggest thing we can do to grow the economy, to restore opportunity and help these middle-income families who are struggling,” Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said ahead of the vote.

Once the bill reached the magic number for passage, Republicans in the chamber erupted into applause.

Mistrial Declared In Trial Of Democrat Senator Bob Menendez After Jury Deadlocks – USA Today

Bob Menendez’s corruption trial ended Thursday with a jury deadlocked on all 18 counts against the New Jersey Democrat and his co-defendant, raising questions about the strength of the government’s case but failing to lift the legal cloud that has hung over the senator for more than two years.

U.S. District Court Judge William H. Walls declared a mistrial after jurors were not able to reach a unanimous verdict during more than 15 hours of deliberations. Federal prosecutors have not indicated whether they will retry Menendez and co-defendant Salomon Melgen, both 63, on charges that include bribery, fraud and conspiracy.

The most serious of the charges carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison.

A wave of relief swept over one half of the Newark courtroom when the judge’s decision became apparent around 1 p.m. Menendez wrapped his two adult children in an emotional embrace while his other supporters and those of Melgen teared up as they exchanged congratulatory hugs…

Congress, Trump Administration Push Cutting Off Aid To Palestinians, Iranian-Tied Terrorists – Washington Free Beacon

Congressional leaders advanced several key pieces of legislation on Wednesday that would cut off U.S. taxpayer aid to the Palestinians and crackdown on Iran’s financial support for the terror group Hamas, legislative efforts that are being helped along by the Trump administration.

The House Foreign Affairs Committee, in a bipartisan vote, approved three pieces of legislation that will cut off U.S. aid to the Palestinian government and help prevent American businesses from doing business with Hamas and other Iranian-tied terror groups.

One of the bills, the Taylor Force Act, which would slash U.S. aid to the Palestinians until they stop using the money to pay salaries to imprisoned terrorists and their families, received support from the White House, which is said to have played a central role in ensuring the proposed legislation garnered bipartisan support.

Rabid Anti-Trumper Arrested In California After Threatening To Go On Killing Spree – PJ Media

He was charged with one felony count of making criminal threats after threatening a university professor through emails and posting threatening YouTube videos – in one he talked about going on a “killing spree.”

Every Democrat Presidential Candidate In 25 Years Had Pedophile Ties – Daniel Greenfield

Leftist Insanity Update: Poll Reveals 77% Of Democrats With 4-Year Degrees Think Sex Not Determined At Birth – Breitbart

Three out of four college-educated Democrats seem to believe that a man can be a woman if he just says so, regardless of his biology, genetics, and genitalia, according to a skewed survey conducted by the Pew Research Center.

The main question in the August-to-September survey of 4,573 people is built on the phrase: “sex assigned at birth.” But that phrase was invented by transgender activists to help them claim that every person’s sex is independent of their biology and that a newborn’s sex should not be unfairly “assigned” by the doctors and parents who examine the newborns’ biology and visible genitalia. The Pew survey asked:

Which statement comes closer to your views, even if neither is exactly right?

Whether someone is a man or a woman is determined by the sex they were assigned at birth

Someone can be a man or a woman even if that is different from the sex they were assigned at birth

According to Pew’s write-up…

Crooked Hillary Personally Overturned Visa Ban For Islamist Now Accused Of Rape – PJ Media
.

.
European Islamist scion Tariq Ramadan was banned from the U.S. by the Bush administration in February 2004 for his financial support of a charity that funded terrorist groups. In January 2010, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton overturned that ban. Clinton personally approved a visa for the controversial grandson of the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Now, Tariq Ramadan is facing multiple accusations of rape and sexual assault of minors.

Hillary Clinton’s visa for Tariq Ramadan was seen as part of the new Obama administration policy of embracing more hardcore Islamists.

The New York Times reported in 2010:

Six years after using the Patriot Act to revoke the visa of a prominent Muslim academic, the United States State Department reversed itself…

British Teacher Suspended For Referring To A “Transgender” Pupil As A Girl Rather Than A Boy In Class – Evening Standard

A teacher has been suspended for referring to a transgender boy as a girl during class.

Joshua Sutcliffe, 27, could face the sack after the child’s mother complained to the Oxfordshire secondary school where he works.

The maths teacher said that he accidentally told the teenager and another pupil “well done girls” when he saw they were working hard.

He apologised when the pupil objected but will face a formal disciplinary hearing this week and could face misconduct charges for ‘misgendering’.

Mr Sutcliffe had also called him by a female pronoun on several other occasions, according the Mail on Sunday.

He said in an interview that it was a genuine mistake but that he thought, as a Christian, referring to someone who was born female as a girl was right…

U.S. Breaks Ground For New Permanent Army Base In Israel – Defense News

U.S. and Israeli officers broke ground in Israel on Monday for a permanent U.S. Army base that will house dozens of U.S. soldiers, operating under the American flag, and charged with the mission of defending against rocket and missile attack.

The American base, officers in Israel say, will be an independent facility co-located at the Israel Defense Forces Air Defense School in southern Israel, near the desert capital of Beersheba.

Once completed, the base will house U.S. operational systems to identify and intercept a spectrum of aerial threats, along with barracks, recreational and other facilities required to support several dozen American air defenders.

“A few dozens of soldiers of our American allies will be stationed here permanently. They are part of an American task force that will be stationed here,” said Israeli Air Force Brig. Gen. Zvika Haimovich, the IDF‘s air defense commander…

Judge Roy Moore Announces Plans To Sue Washington Post: “We Expect The People Of Alabama To See Through This Charade” – Breitbart

Judge Roy Moore, the GOP nominee for the United States Senate, announced Sunday evening at an event that he plans to sue the Washington Post for its series of hit pieces against him, his wife, his foundation, and his campaign.

Breitbart News was granted exclusive access to the event, which was closed to the press.

Officials expected the casualty toll to rise when search and rescue teams reached remote areas of Iran.

A quake registering a magnitude between 7 and 7.9 can inflict widespread and heavy damage. Moreover, many houses in rural areas of Iran are made of mud bricks that can crumble easily in a quake.

The earthquake was felt throughout the Middle East, with tremors being reported in Israel, but the province of Kermanshah in Iran was hit the hardest.

Leftist Insanity Update: Toronto Proposes Muslim-Only Internship Program – The Rebel

The city of Toronto has just introduced a new program that will hire only Muslims to work in the offices of City Councillors.

In his new video, Ezra Levant explains that the applicants to this program will not be chosen by elected officials, but rather by something called Dawanet. “Dawa” is an Islamic word for Muslim evangelism. Ironically, those backing the program say that it’s aim is to “promote diversity,” which is ridiculous given the fact that it is only hiring people from one specific religion.

Of course, there is no program that exclusively hires Christians, Sikhs, Jews, Hindus, or any of the other religious communities in Toronto, because that would be “offensive” and “discriminatory” against Muslims.

It should be noted that taxpayers are being forced to fund this program, even though only a small number of taxpayers would even be eligible to participate in it. Once again, the left is forcing taxpayers to fund a program that helps Muslims, which represent a small segment of the population…

Chaos In Detroit: Undercover Cops Battle Each Other In Sting Operation Gone Wrong – Zero Hedge

This weekend, a big “embarrassment” is festering inside the Detroit Police Department after undercover units from two separate police precincts exchange blows during a sting operation gone wrong.

As officers from the 12th Precinct pretended to be dope dealers, two special operations officers from 11th precinct showed up pretending to be customers. As the deal went bad, the 11th precinct officers ordered the 12th Precinct officers to the ground not knowing that they were fellow colleagues.

Alabama Polls: Judge Roy Moore Maintains Double Digit Lead Over Democrat Doug Jones – Breitbart

Two new polls demonstrate that GOP nominee for the U.S. Senate Judge Roy Moore remains unaffected entirely by smears in the Washington Post against him, and his lead before the Post piece on Thursday afternoon remains intact.

One of the polls, which were both provided by the pollster to Breitbart News exclusively on Saturday evening, was conducted on Thursday morning before the publication of the Post piece that afternoon. The second one was conducted on Sunday evening. Together, they show Judge Moore’s lead over Democrat Doug Jones has been virtually unaffected since the Post story came out.

The first survey, which was conducted entirely before noon local time on Thursday, shows Moore leading Jones by 50 percent to 39.2 percent with 10.8 percent undecided. That survey of 1,354 likely voters in the upcoming Dec. 12 special election has a margin of error of 3.5 percent.

Kevin Spacey Cut Out Of Film And Replaced By Christopher Plummer – The Guardian

Kevin Spacey is being cut out of Ridley Scott’s forthcoming film about oil magnate J Paul Getty and replaced by Christopher Plummer little more than a month before its release.

According to the report, all of Spacey scenes will be reshot. Co-stars Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams were expected to participate.

The report came hours after a former TV news anchor said Spacey sexually assaulted her teenage son last year at a Nantucket restaurant.

German Killer Nurse’s Suspected Death Toll Rises Above 100, Police Say – Reuters

A German nurse serving a prison sentence for murdering two patients is suspected of killing a total of 102 people, more than previously known, police and public prosecutors said on Thursday. That would make him Germany’s deadliest serial killer if he was found guilty.

The man, identified only as Niels H. under reporting rules, has admitted to deliberately injecting patients at two clinics in northern Germany with deadly drugs and then trying to revive them in order to play the hero.

He has confessed to some killings, but police said in August that he could not remember all the details of his actions, prompting them to exhume the remains of 134 people with links to Niels H. to identify further victims.

The investigation has now turned up evidence leading authorities to suspect Niels H. killed 38 people at a clinic in the northern German city of Oldenburg and 62 at one in nearby Delmenhorst, Oldenburg police and the city’s public prosecutor’s office said in a statement on Thursday…

Ted Cruz: Democrats Filibustered Legislation That Would Have Resulted In Texas Church Shooter Being In Prison – Breitbart
.

.
On Monday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Fox News @ Night,” Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) criticized Democrats for filibustering the Grassley-Cruz legislation in 2013 that “would have resulted in this shooter being in federal prison instead of murdering those innocents in that Texas church.”

Cruz said, “[T]his should have been stopped beforehand. Under federal law, it was illegal for this individual to purchase a firearm. He had a conviction for a crime that’s punishable by more than a year in prison, and he had a conviction for multiple domestic violence crimes. Both of those, it’s already ineligible. But, several things happened: Number one, the air force – the Obama administration didn’t report those convictions to the [NICS] database. That’s an endemic problem…

Breaking: Woman Wins Women’s Race – Washington Free Beacon

The front page of the New York Times Monday morning was shocking. A woman won the New York City marathon! Impossible!

The Times special marathon section certainly gave that impression, too.

Google “who won the New York City marathon?” and Shalane Flanagan’s name comes up first. And don’t get me wrong: Her time of 2 hours 26 minutes 53 seconds was impressive. And she was the first American to win the women’s race in 40 years. Not bad.

But a woman did not finish first in the NYC marathon. Flanagan’s time was 16 minutes slower than the winner of the New York City marathon men’s race, Geoffrey Kipsang Kamworor of Kenya.

Kamworor’s win is buried by the Times, relegated to page 3 of the special section. The Times, and the rest of the media, neglects to note that five American men beat their self-declared winner Flanagan.

But never mind, the headlines all tell the same story: A woman won the NYC marathon!…

Pennsylvania Man Kills Woman After Failed Marriage Proposal – KYW

First Comey Memo Concluded Hillary Was “Grossly Negligent,” Punishable By Jail – Zero Hedge

According to a new report from The Hill, early drafts of former FBI Director James Comey’s statement on Hillary Clinton’s email case accused the former Secretary of State of “gross negligence” in her handling of classified information as opposed to the “extremely careless” phrase that made its way into the final statement.

As The Hill further points out, the change in language is significant since federal law states that “gross negligence” in handling the nation’s intelligence can be punished criminally with prison time or fines whereas “extreme carelessness” has no such legal definition and/or ramifications.

An early draft of former FBI Director James Comey’s statement closing out the Hillary Clinton email case accused the former Secretary of State of having been ‘grossly negligent” in handling classified information, new memos to Congress show.

Black Guy Painted His Own Car With Racist Graffiti At Kansas State University – The Sentinel

A black man painted racist graffiti on his own car parked near Kansas State University, police determined.

The end of the so-called Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) caliphate that once expanded across vast swathes of two countries is within reach now that the jihadists lost the last-remaining city under their control in Syria and its final stronghold in Iraq along the border.

“Frankly the tempo of our operations is going to reduce as Daesh [ISIS] are beaten in Iraq and in Syria,” conceded Air Commander Johnny Stringer in charge of Britain’s contribution to U.S.-led air coalition against the Islamic State, reports the Telegraph.

ISIS’s so-called caliphate had “all but disappeared,” declared the commander. However, he indicated that “it was now likely to morph into an insurgent organization.”

Four Viral Claims Spread By Journalists On Twitter In The Last Week Alone That Are False – Glenn Greenwald

There is ample talk, particularly of late, about the threats posed by social media to democracy and political discourse. Yet one of the primary ways that democracy is degraded by platforms such as Facebook and Twitter is, for obvious reasons, typically ignored in such discussions: the way they are used by American journalists to endorse factually false claims that quickly spread and become viral, entrenched into narratives, and thus, can never be adequately corrected.

The design of Twitter, where many political journalists spend their time, is in large part responsible for this damage. Its space constraints mean that tweeted headlines or tiny summaries of reporting are often assumed to be true with no critical analysis of their accuracy and are easily spread.

Claims from journalists that people want to believe are shared like wildfire, while less popular subsequent corrections or nuanced debunking are easily ignored. Whatever one’s views are on the actual impact of Twitter Russian bots, surely the propensity of journalistic falsehoods to spread far and wide is at least as significant…

Legendary Sportscaster Vin Scully Says He’ll Never Watch Another NFL Game Over Anthem Protests – Daily Caller

Legendary baseball announcer Vin Scully is boycotting the NFL over national anthem protests.

This is not surprising at all. Scully is known as one of the most famous announcers sports history, and he’s never really held back when it comes to politics. He famously slammed socialism during a live broadcast. I’d be more surprised if he did indeed agree with the national anthem protests.

His comments also represent the way many Americans feel. Lots of people have been turned off to the NFL ever since players kneeling and refusing to stand during the national anthem became a thing in the league.

Governor LePage Vetoes Bill To Regulate Marijuana Sales In Maine – Bangor Daily News

“There have been serious negative effects of legalization in other states – effects that should not be repeated in Maine,” LePage wrote in his veto letter, adding that “we need assurances that a change in policy or administration at the federal level will not nullify” public and private investments in the industry.

He also said the recreational marijuana bill fails to align with existing medical marijuana law, particularly because sales tax on medical pot would be lower.

House Votes To Abolish Obamacare ‘Death Panel’ – Daily Caller

The House Thursday voted to repeal a key government board established by the Affordable Care Act that conservatives rallied against during the Obamacare debate seven years ago out of concern that the provision could wind up rationing medical care for patients.

The Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), famously called a “death panel” by its opponents, is a 15-member federal agency intended to reduce Medicare without taking away coverage or quality of care. The American Enterprise Institute has pointed out, that IPAB “emphasizes payment reductions at the expense of real Medicare reform.

The constraints placed on what the IPAB can recommend were not accidental. The authors of the ACA support restraining Medicare spending, but only with government-imposed payment restrictions, not financial incentives.”

The IPAB can make recommendations about cuts to Medicare sans congressional oversight or input. IPAB proposals use “fast track” protocols and require a three-fifths vote in the Senate for Congress to alter the kinds of cuts to Medicare…

A New Bill In Congress Would Prevent Any Baby With A Heartbeat From Being Aborted – Washington Standard

The Left Has Blood On Its Hands In Manhattan – Daniel Greenfield

Earlier this year, a final settlement was reached in the war on the NYPD’s counterterrorist Islamic surveillance.

Walk two blocks down to City Hall. And then head down Chambers to the West Side Highway. That’s where the terrorist attack that killed eight people ended when an NYPD officer shot the terrorist. If he had kept going down the West Side Highway, instead of crashing into a school bus, he would have eventually been within attack range of the 9/11 Memorial. And maybe that was his original plan.

But his message was very clear. He shouted it as he left the truck with which he murdered 8 people.

CNN’s Jake Tapper Calls Allahu Akbar ‘Beautiful’ After Terrorist Attack – Daily Caller

CNN anchor Jake Tapper called the Islamic phrase Allahu Akbar “beautiful” minutes after reports of a terrorist attack in New York City, Tuesday on “The Lead.”

Tapper was interviewing CNN’s crime and justice reporter Shimon Prokupecz when he chimed in to give his opinion on the nature of the terrorist chant.

“The Arabic chant Allahu Akbar, God is great – sometimes said under the most beautiful of circumstances and too often we hear of it being said in moments like this,” Tapper said.

The FBI is now investigating the attack that occurred Tuesday, in which at least six people were killed in Lower Manhattan. So far reports indicate the suspect plowed over several pedestrians on a bike path and then opened fire from the car…

NYC Foreign Terror Suspect Entered U.S. With ‘Diversity Visa’ Trump Wants To End – Breitbart

The suspected foreign national terrorist behind the New York City attack that has left at least eight individuals dead came to the United States years ago through the Diversity Visa Lottery, a program that President Trump and pro-American immigration reformers have demanded an end to.

According to ABC New York, 29-year-old Sayfullo Saipov – the man who allegedly mowed down pedestrians in the Tribeca neighborhood of New York City – entered the U.S. in 2010 from Uzbekistan under the Diversity Visa Lottery before obtaining a Green Card.

The Diversity Visa Lottery gives out 50,000 visas every year to foreign nationals from a multitude of countries, including those with known terrorist problems – such as Afghanistan, Algeria, Egypt, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Syria, Trinidad and Tobago, Venezuela, Yemen, and Uzbekistan.

Trump, though, along with Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) and Sen. David Perdue (R-GA), has been calling for an end to the Diversity Visa Lottery program since August…

Consumer Confidence At Highest Level Since 2000 – The Hill

Consumer confidence in the U.S. has reached its highest point in nearly 17 years, according to a new survey out Tuesday.

The Consumer Confidence Index now stands at 125.9 – its highest point since December of 2000, when it hit 128.6, the Conference Board, a business research group, said. Last month, the index reached 120.6.

Consumers’ outlook on current economic conditions improved from last month, and they appear optimistic about the short-term outlook, Lynn Franco, the Conference Board’s director of economic indicators, said in a statement, noting that the economy is likely to continue growing at a steady pace for the rest of the year.

The findings signal more good news for the economy. Also fueling consumer confidence is the job market, “which had not received such favorable ratings since the summer of 2001,” Franco said.

Unemployment currently sits at 4.2 percent – its lowest point in 16 years…

Man Arrested After 9 Dismembered Bodies Found At Japan Apartment – Breitbart

Police say a man in Zama City, Japan, was arrested Tuesday after several dismembered bodies were found in his apartment. Takahiro Shiraishi, 27, was initially taken into custody on a charge of discarding a body after the disappearance of a local woman.

The two allegedly met after she wrote on a suicide-oriented website. Security footage shows Shiraishi and the victim walking together at nearby train stations, officials said. Police said Shiraishi confessed to killing the woman and putting her body in a refrigerator.

Japanese media said a search of Shiraishi’s apartment yielded parts of at least nine dismembered bodies, including two severed heads, the Japan Times reported. Police believe the bodies are those of eight women and one man. Investigators said DNA tests will identify them.

A neighbor in the apartment building said he noticed an unusual smell coming from Shiraishi’s apartment after he became a resident in August, but did not observe any strange noises or voices. The apartment building is near Camp Zawa, a Japanese U.S. Army base…

Mueller May Have Been Illegally Appointed To Job, Legal Expert Says – Law Newz

It’s pretty clear that Trump is not a fan of special counsel Robert Mueller. There have been reports that he’s even considering firing him or at least getting someone from DOJ to do it for him.

This week, The Wall Street Journal’s editorial board called for Mueller to resign saying that “he lacks the critical distance to conduct a credible probe of the bureau he ran for a dozen years.” However, according to one legal expert, he might not need to resign or be fired: Mueller might have been illegally appointed.

Collapse At North Korea Nuclear Test Site Leaves 200 Dead – Daily Telegraph

As many as 200 North Korean labourers have been killed after a mine shaft being dug at the regime’s nuclear test site collapsed, according to Japan’s Asahi TV. Sources in North Korea told the news channel that a tunnel being excavated by around 100 workers at the Punggye-ri test site collapsed earlier this month.

An additional 100 labourers sent to rescue their colleagues were reportedly killed when the tunnel suffered a second collapse. An exact date for the disaster has not been provided, but it comes shortly after North Korea conducted its sixth – and most powerful – underground nuclear test at the site.

North Korea claims the September 3 test beneath Mount Mantap was of a hydrogen bomb, with monitors suggesting the detonation was equivalent to an earthquake with a magnitude of 6.1 on the Richter scale. Some analysts put the yield of the weapon as high as 280 kilotons, while seismologists picked up signs of underground collapses in the hours and days after the blast…

Jerry Jones Is Trying To Take Out Roger Goodell – New York Post

Jerry Jones sees a prone Roger Goodell, and he’s pouncing. The influential Cowboys owner was a leader of a 17-owner conference call Thursday discussing whether they could halt a pending contract extension for the commissioner, according to an ESPN report Sunday.

Jones tried holding up the talks last month, according to Sports Business Daily, after Goodell slammed Ezekiel Elliott with a six-game suspension (a war that is now being waged in court).

Amid another controversy this month – the national anthem saga has necessitated multiple owners-players meetings, as Goodell won’t mandate the players stand and Jones is threatening Cowboys onto their feet – Jones appears to be relaunching an attempt at dethroning the commissioner.

According to the report, the owners are unhappy with Goodell for a few reasons beyond the anthem, including how the NFL handled the relocation of teams to Los Angeles and (still) the league’s bungling of the Ray Rice domestic violence case…

Angry Puerto Ricans Attack Whitefish Energy Workers; Canceling Contract Will Delay Power 2 To 3 Months – Gateway Pundit

Finally, A Definitive Timeline Showing When Clinton, DNC Started The Russian Dossier – Daily Caller

There has been much confusion in the media – and thereby, the public – about who funded the infamous Trump dossier. Some outlets have incorrectly reported that Republicans began financing the dossier before the Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee took over last Spring.

But that is incorrect. Democrats are solely responsible for the dossier, which was passed around by their research firm, Fusion GPS, to Beltway reporters and select lawmakers during the heat of the presidential campaign.

Here is the definitive timeline of how it all transpired.

Oct. 2015: It was reported late Friday that the Washington Free Beacon, a conservative website funded by GOP mega-donor Paul Singer, hired Fusion GPS to investigate Trump. Free Beacon’s editor said Friday that the research was standard opposition research and that it was not tied to the dossier work that would follow several months later.

Great Again: 1.5 Million Fewer Americans On Food Stamps Under Trump – Daily Wire

Former president Barack Obama has been busy since leaving office trying to secure his legacy.

But here’s one big way Americans will always remember the 44th president: People forced to live on food stamp soared 32% under his watch. In 2009, when he took office, there were 33.5 million people on food stamp benefits; in October 2016, just a few months before he left office, that number had skyrocketed to 44.2 million – a jump of 10.7 million people.

The cost of the program to taxpayers rose from $50.3 billion to $66.6 billion – all while Obama’s administration pushed the idea that the economy was booming (it wasn’t). As the unemployment rate dropped (mainly due to Obama officials reducing the number of people considered in the “work force”), millions were forced onto food stamps.

But that “hope and change” has been replaced by four simple words: “Make America Great Again.”

New statistics from the U.S. Department of Agriculture show nearly1.5 million Americans have gotten off the food stamp rolls since President Trump took office in January 2017…

Pence Breaks Tie In Senate To Nix Obama-Era Consumer Arbitration Rule – The Hill

Vice President Pence joined with Senate Republicans to nix a controversial consumer bureau rule banning companies from using forced settlements to resolve disputes with customers.

Senators voted 50-50 on the resolution of disapproval. GOP Sens. Lindsey Graham (S.C.) and John Kennedy (La.) joined with Democrats to oppose cutting the Obama-era rule. Pence then took over the presiding officer’s chair and cast the tie-breaking vote to make the total 51-50.

Republicans are using the Congressional Review Act, which gives them 60 legislative days to repeal an executive branch rule after it’s finalized with a simple majority.

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s rule would ban banks and credit card companies from using clauses in customer contracts that protect them from class-action lawsuits.

So-called forced arbitration clauses require customers to resolve any disputes with the firm through a third-party mediator, and bans them from suing the company. Democrats argue nixing the rule would be a boon to Wall Street and financial institutions…

In its latest bombshell report that – for once – doesn’t include some nefarious allegations of wrongdoing or incompetence involving President Donald Trump or members of his administration, the Washington Post reported Tuesday that the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign jointly financed the creation of the infamous “Trump dossier,” which helped inspire the launch of the floundering investigations into whether the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians.

Though neither the DNC nor the Clinton campaign worked directly with former British spy Christopher Steele as he compiled the document, the fact that Democrats funded the dossier ironically suggests the Democrats indirectly leveraged Russian sources to try and spread information of dubious veracity about a political opponent to try and sway an election…

Fake Hate Update: Police Arrest Black Man For KKK Graffiti At Michigan University – Breitbart

A black man has been arrested for a series of racist graffiti attacks that shocked minority students starting last fall at Eastern Michigan University. Last September, “KKK” was sprayed in red, white, and blue paint on a dormitory wall. Along with that, a threat telling black students to “leave” the school was also left on the wall.

In a second incident, the same threat was painted on another building at the end of October. This spring, a third racist message was left in a university bathroom. Students and faculty were shocked.

“It really has rocked our community,” Judith Kullberg, an EMU political scientist and president of the faculty Senate, told the Washington Post last year. “In this whole context of a very tense presidential election, it has raised anxiety here considerably.”

But now, Michigan police are reporting the arrest of Eddie Curlin, 29, a black student who studied at the school from 2014 to 2016, the Post reported…

Supreme Court Kills Refugee Ban Challenge – Daily Caller
.

.
The U.S. Supreme Court dismissed the second and final challenge to President Donald Trump’s executive order on refugees and migrants Tuesday, concluding that the expiration of a 120-day ban on refugee resettlement ended the controversy.

The dismissal ends a protracted round of litigating around the president’s order that was replaced in late September by a new round of travel sanctions against eight countries. Those sanctions are currently under challenges.

The justices dismissed the first travel ban case Oct. 10. That case arose in Maryland and concerned the order’s 90-day ban on the entry of migrants from six countries with high instances of terrorism. The ban’s expiration effectively “mooted” the case, the justices concluded.

Federal courts are only empowered to hear ongoing controversies where their action can affect an outcome. When the controversy concludes and renders further court action irrelevant, the case is considered moot and is thereafter dismissed…

Spineless RINO Won’t Seek Re-Election As U.S. Senator – Fox News

Arizona Republican Sen. Jeff Flake, facing a tough primary fight, announced Tuesday he will not seek re-election next year – while taking a parting shot on the Senate floor at President Trump for behavior he called “reckless, outrageous, and undignified.”

Without mentioning the president by name, Flake accused the Republican Party of having “given in or given up on the core principles in favor of a more viscerally satisfying anger and resentment… but anger and resentment are not a governing philosophy.”

Flake has had a tumultuous relationship with the Trump administration. In August, he criticized the president’s immigration policy in a New York Times opinion piece. The president tweeted in response that Flake was “WEAK on borders, crime and a non-factor in the Senate.”

Flake, 54, was elected to the Senate in 2012 after 12 years in the House of Representatives. But polls showed him trailing primary challenger Kelli Ward, a former state senator who is backed by former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon…

10 Times CNN Told Us An Apple Was A Banana – David Harsanyi

They might scream banana, banana, banana, over and over and over again. They might put BANANA in all caps. You might even start to believe that this is a banana. But it’s not. This is an apple.”

Illegal Alien Who Paved Way For Massachusetts’ ‘Sanctuary’ Policy Arrested For Robbing Disabled Woman – Washington Times

The illegal immigrant whose case turned Massachusetts into a “sanctuary” state is behind bars yet again. Police say he committed a stunning daylight robbery by taking a wheelchair-bound woman, slapping her and stealing the $2,000 she had just carried out of the bank.

Sreynuon Lunn had been free on the streets of Boston because his home country won’t take him back, leaving immigration officers no choice but to release him under a 2001 U.S. Supreme Court ruling.

His case gained headlines over the summer when the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court ruled that state and local authorities could no longer legally hold immigrants for pickup by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Now ICE is trying to decide whether to try again to pick up and deport Lunn, even as he faces local charges from the latest robbery.

“The first, obvious problem is that Lunn is here at all. He should be removed to either Cambodia or Thailand, but apparently neither country will take him,” said Jessica Vaughan…

Terror Cases In Germany Quadruple In One Year – Zero Hedge

More evidence revealing the ridiculousness of the centrist position on immigration – namely that refugees can be seamlessly integrated into European society without a spike in crime or terror – has emerged courtesy of the German newspaper Welt Am Sonntag which revealed Sunday that the number of terrorism-related cases investigated by German authorities has quadrupled over the past year.

Prosecutors have opened more than 900 cases so far this year, compared with just 240 throughout 2016, and 80 cases in 2013.

Germany’s federal police estimate 705 Islamist extremists willing to carry out terror attacks are active in the country, up from 600 during an estimate in February. Germany’s domestic intelligence agency recently said around 24,400 Islamists are active in the country but most of them don’t pose an immediate terror threat.

To be sure, the number of migrants applying for asylum in Germany plummeted to about 280,000 in 2016, about one-third the number from the prior year..

Leftist Professor Claims Math, Algebra And Geometry Promote ‘White Privilege’ – Daily Caller

A University of Illinois math professor believes that algebra and geometry perpetuate “white privilege” because Greek terms give Caucasians unearned credit for the subject. But that isn’t the professor’s only complaint. She also believes that evaluations for math proficiency perpetuates discrimination against minority students, if they do worse than their white counterparts.

Rochelle Gutierrez argues in a newly published math education book for teachers that they must be aware of the identity politics surrounding the subject of mathematics.

“On many levels, mathematics itself operates as Whiteness,” she argues with complete sincerity, according to Campus Reform. “Who gets credit for doing and developing mathematics, who is capable in mathematics, and who is seen as part of the mathematical community is generally viewed as White.”

Federal Tax Loophole Let Planned Parenthood Build Clinics Financed With ‘Abortion Bonds’ – Washington Times

Federal taxpayer funding generally isn’t allowed to be spent on abortions, but Republicans say they have spotted a loophole in which tax-free municipal bonds have been used to put federal cash on the line in order to help build abortion clinics – including Planned Parenthood’s headquarters in New York.

Rep. Robert Pittenger, North Carolina Republican, will introduce legislation this week aimed at stopping what he called “abortion bonds.” He said it’s time to make the law agree with the principle that taxpayers shouldn’t be on the hook in any way for the procedure.

“We’re utilizing the federal government to facilitate the development of these abortion clinics through the involvement of the American taxpayer, and they don’t want that,” Mr. Pittenger said.

Under current law, known as the Hyde Amendment policy, taxpayer funding is supposed to be limited to abortions in extreme cases of rape, incest or danger to the mother’s life…

Miami Man Inspired By ISIS Arrested On Charge Of Trying To Blow Up A Bomb At Dolphin Mall – Miami Herald

A Miami man suspected of being inspired by Islamic extremists was arrested Friday night on a charge of attempting to blow up a bomb at the Dolphin Mall by FBI counter-terrorism agents in an undercover operation.

Vicente Solano, who acted alone, was communicating with a confidential informant who tipped off the FBI-led Joint Terrorism Task Force about his alleged plot to carry out a weapons of mass destruction attack on the sprawling mall in Sweetwater, according to authorities.

Before the planned bombing attack, Solano made pro-Islamic State videos, authorities said. But there is no indication he was directed by ISIS terrorists.

When he was arrested, Solano planned to detonate the WMD, which was a sham bomb that he acquired from FBI undercover agents – a strategy deployed in previous counter-terrorism probes in South Florida.

Solano will have his first appearance in Miami federal court on Monday, when a criminal complaint and affidavit will be filed that charge him with attempting to blow up a WMD…

Let’s put the Uranium One scandal in perspective: The cool half-million bucks the Putin regime funneled to Bill Clinton was five times the amount it spent on those Facebook ads – the ones the media-Democrat complex ludicrously suggests swung the 2016 presidential election to Donald Trump.

The Facebook-ad buy, which started in June 2015 – before Donald Trump entered the race – was more left-wing agitprop (ads pushing hysteria on racism, immigration, guns, etc.) than electioneering. The Clintons’ own long-time political strategist Mark Penn estimates that just $6,500 went to actual electioneering. (You read that right: 65 hundred dollars.)

By contrast, the staggering $500,000 payday from a Kremlin-tied Russian bank for a single speech was part of a multi-million-dollar influence-peddling scheme to enrich the former president and his wife, then-secretary of state Hillary Clinton…

Trump Pledges $430,000 Of His Own Money To Help Cover Russia-Related Legal Bills For Associates – Washington Examiner

President Trump will provide some financial assistance to campaign associates and White House staff facing steep legal bills amid various Russia investigations.

A White House official told Axios that the president has pledged to spend at least $430,000 of his own money, which is the estimated amount the Republican National Committee has said footing the bill for lawyers representing Trump and his son, Donald Trump Jr.

However, the unnamed official said that the president is not reimbursing the RNC.

The exact method by which the president plans to make the payment is unclear, and the White House official said, “We’re working on appropriate legal and ethical approval.”

The RNC too faced legal questions when it was revealed that it was looking to pay for the Trump administration’s Russia probe legal fees.

Senate Passes $4 Trillion Budget In Crucial Step For Trump’s Tax Overhaul – Washington Times

Senate Republicans powered their budget through Thursday night, adopting a fiscal year 2018 plan that would clear the path to get a massive tax deal done relying only on GOP votes, setting the stage for Republicans’ next big-ticket agenda item.

The budget passed on a 51-49 vote. While the vote is far from a guarantee of success for tax reform, it’s a crucial first step that GOP leaders had to clear.

“Tonight we completed the first step toward replacing our broken tax code by passing a comprehensive, fiscally responsible budget that will help put the federal government on a path to balance,” said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Already months overdue – the fiscal year began Oct. 1 – the budget calls for about $1 trillion in discretionary spending this year, and envisions deficits of $641 billion.

Leftist Congressman Won’t Fire Top Staffer Convicted Of Tax Evasion – Daily Caller

The chief of staff to Rep. Bennie Thompson spends his days in the halls of Congress and his weekends in jail for tax evasion, after the Mississippi Democrat violated his pledge to fire his wealthy chief if the aide was found guilty of stiffing the treasury of $150,000.

Issac Lanier Avant made $170,000 a year in Congressional pay, yet the court found he didn’t pay any tax returns for seven years. Prosecutors said he was dishonest throughout their investigation, and when he did file tax returns, he lied about donating $50,000 to a religious group and tried to take a “bizarre” tax write-off for rollerblading. Prosecutors asked for a one-year prison term, but Avant was sentenced in January 2017 to a month-long stint in jail followed by a year of weekends in jail.

‘You Owe Me For Making My Grandmother A Slave’: Disabled Man Attacked On Bus Because He’s Old And White – Law Newz

A disabled, homeless man was attacked on a public bus in Maryland – apparently because of his age and race.

The 52-year-old passenger, who is white and not being named in press reports, was riding the Q1 bus on Sunday, September 24 when 27-year-old Marquis Evans-Royster, who is black, allegedly approached him and said: “You owe me for making my grandmother a slave.”

The homeless and disabled man reportedly remained calm after being accused of the impossible crime according to the local ABC affiliate.

After his target ignored the charge, Evans-Royster is said to have begun rifling through the 52-year-old’s pockets. Eventually, bystanders felt compelled to intervene. This upset the alleged attacker even more.

As fellow passengers cast their lot with the man being assaulted, Evans-Royster apparently charged at them in retaliation. Then he allegedly spit in the homeless man’s face and threatened to throw a container full of urine on him…

More Cases Of Voter Fraud Pile Up As Liberals Look The Other Way – Daily Signal

The Heritage Foundation added another round of cases this week to its ever-growing Voter Fraud Database.

Accounting for these new additions, the database now documents 1,088 proven instances of election fraud, including 949 cases that have resulted in criminal convictions, 48 that have ended in civil penalties, and 75 that have seen defendants enter diversion programs.

Americans should be alarmed, not only because Heritage has compiled so many examples of fraud – impacting nearly every state and elections for all levels of government – but because this figure is likely just the tip of the iceberg.

ACLU Sues To Block Ballot Initiative On Transgender Bathroom, Locker Room Use – Helena Independent Record

The ACLU of Montana filed a lawsuit Tuesday challenging the constitutionality of a proposed ballot initiative that would require transgender residents to use public bathrooms and locker rooms that correspond with their sex at birth.

The lawsuit was filed Tuesday in District Court in Cascade County on behalf of seven transgender Montanans, the parents of a transgender 9-year-old and the city of Missoula. The Bozeman City Commission voted Monday to join the effort.

“This proposed measure legalizes discrimination,” said Alex Rate, legal director for the ACLU of Montana.

The ACLU and the plaintiffs argue the Locker Room Privacy Act would deprive transgender Montanans of equal protection under the law and violate their rights to privacy, dignity and due process.

The lawsuit asks the court to declare the initiative unconstitutional and to prevent Secretary of State Corey Stapleton from placing it on the November 2018 ballot…

It Figures… DACA Illegal Aliens Working In California Government On Immigration Issues – Breitbart

Illegal aliens who have received temporary amnesty from the Obama administration are reportedly working as interns and aides in local California government on immigration issues.

A new report by the San Jose Mercury News reveals the extent to which DACA beneficiaries have been given opportunities ahead of Americans, with many working as aides and interns on immigration-related issues in San Jose, California.

Networks Blast Trump Over End Of Obamacare Subsidies, Hide Their Illegality – NewsBusters

On Friday and over the weekend, ABC, CBS and NBC reacted with their typical anti-Trump fervor to the President’s decision to end federal subsidies of insurance companies through ObamaCare, but only a meager portion of broadcast news coverage – barely three percent – tipped viewers off to the fact those payments were unconstitutional in the first place.

Instead, news coverage touted the anecdotal stories of those benefiting from the payments, and the “fear” they faced with the prospect of those subsidies ending, without seeming to care very much that no proper authorization for the government spending ever existed.

From Friday morning, October 13, through Sunday evening, October 15, the ABC, CBS, and NBC morning and evening news shows aired a total of 38 minutes, 8 seconds of coverage of the Trump administration’s decision to end the illegal subsidy payments begun under the Obama administration. Only 71 seconds of that airtime – none of it on NBC! – was spent on the important point that these payments were being made without Congressional authorization, and thus unconstitutional, according to a May 2016 federal court decision…

Dumbest Ex-VP In History Awards RINO Douchebag Who Blocked Obamacare Repeal With Medal Previously Won By Crooked Hillary – Washington Examiner

Over the years, Biden said, the two counseled each other. When McCain first ran for office, Biden was encouraging. In the 1990s, Biden said the two were chastised by their parties for sitting together during debates. In recent years, the two have been honored for their bipartisanship.

Obamacare Tax To Raise Premiums In 2018, Cost $270 Billion Over Next Decade – Washington Free Beacon

An Obamacare tax that will be imposed in 2018 will raise premiums even further and is estimated to cost $270 billion over the next decade, according to a report commissioned by UnitedHealth Group.

The report was commissioned to examine how a tax imposed by Obamacare would impact premiums. Under Obamacare, health insurers that offer coverage are required to pay a fee on health insurance premiums they earn, which is also considered a tax by the IRS.

Congress imposed a moratorium on collecting these taxes in 2017, but that moratorium will end the beginning of 2018. According to the report, $13.9 billion in insurer taxes was not collected in 2017, which saved consumers about 3 percent on premiums.

“However, under current law the moratorium will lapse in 2018 and the tax on health insurance will be reinstated for 2018 at a higher annual level ($14.3 billion), resulting in higher fully-insured premiums for the 2018 plan year and all future years,” the report explained…

Unemployment Claims Fall To Lowest Level In 43 Years, Despite Hurricanes – Washington Examiner

The total number of laid-off workers receiving unemployment benefits fell to 1.89 million at the end of September, the Department of Labor reported Thursday, the lowest such mark in nearly 44 years.

And new claims for unemployment benefits dropped 15,000 to 243,000 in the first full week of October, according to the agency, as the job market bounces back from hurricane damage even faster than forecasters expected.

Low new jobless claims are a good sign. They indicate that layoffs are rare, and accordingly that job creation is strong.

Unemployment benefits are available for up to 26 weeks in most states. Fewer people are now receiving benefits of all duration than at any time since December of 1973, when the total workforce was much smaller. That is a reflection of the strength of the jobs market, and the availability of new positions for laid-off workers…

Iran Deal Supporters Are Willing To Sell Out The U.S. To Jihadists – Ben Weingarten

Trump To Cease Using Taxpayer Dollars To Pay Illegal Obamacare Subsidies – Daily Caller

U.S. Withdraws From UNESCO, Saying It’s Biased Against Israel – Bloomberg

Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, which the U.S. co-founded in 1945, “was not taken lightly,” State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said in a statement Thursday. She cited the need for “fundamental reform in the organization, and continuing anti-Israel bias at UNESCO.”

The U.S. hasn’t been paying dues to UNESCO since 2011, when President Barack Obama’s administration stopped providing about $72 million a year after the Paris-based organization accepted Palestine as a full member.

The arrears total almost $543 million, according to UNESCO. U.S. laws bar funding for any UN agency that gives Palestinians the status of a nation, and the U.S. lost its voting privilege in the organization in 2013…

Trump Begins Dismantling Obamacare With New Executive Order – Washington Examiner
.

.
President Trump signed an executive order Thursday aimed at loosening some Obamacare requirements so that people can buy less comprehensive, but also less expensive, healthcare coverage, in the wake of the Senate’s failure this year to move any legislation to change the law.

“We are all gathered together to do something that is very powerful for our nation and very good for our people,” Trump said at the White House, surrounded by officials and small business owners.

The executive order directs the departments of Health and Human Services, Labor, and Treasury to take steps to make it easier for people to band together and buy coverage through what is known as “association health plans.”…

9 Republicans Co-Sponsoring More Gun Control For Law-Abiding Americans – Breitbart

Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-FL) introduced gun control aimed at law-abiding Americans on Tuesday. His bill has nine Republican co-sponsors, which means nine Republicans are willing to punish every law-abiding American for the behavior of one criminal in Las Vegas.

And they are doing all this to ban bump stocks, a product the ATF evaluated and approved in 2010.

The ATF approved the stocks because they are accessories for semiautomatics rather than conversion devices that turn semiautomatics into fully automatic weapons. Curbelo’s bill gets around the ATF’s approval by explicitly banning certain accessories for AR-15s, even if those accessories “[do] not convert the semiautomatic rifle into a machine gun.”

And like the Democrat bill – put forward by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) – Curbelo’s bill is already broader than bump stocks alone. In other words, it is a ban that will keep on giving for the Democrats and other gun control proponents.

Here are the nine Republicans who are co-sponsoring Curbelo’s bill…

Hillary’s Phony “Shock” At Weinstein Scandal – Joseph Klein

When Hillary did finally say something, her words were delivered via a written statement, not on camera where she has lectured us so frequently about how pervasive sexism and misogyny are in America.

The statement on Weinstein’s alleged sexual exploitation and abuse of women issued in Hillary’s name claimed that she was “shocked and appalled by the revelations about Harvey Weinstein.” The statement then added Clinton’s standard bromide: “The behavior described by women coming forward cannot be tolerated…

Pressure From Trump Leads To Pakistan Government Securing Release Of American Family Held Hostage By Terrorists – Washington Free Beacon

The government of Pakistan, under pressure from President Trump to do more against Islamic terrorism, secured the release of an American mother and her family after five years captivity at the hands of Islamic terrorists.

Caitlan Coleman, her Canadian husband, and three children, including a very young child, were freed from control of the al-Qaeda-linked Haqqani Network terrorist group Wednesday night and were in Pakistani government custody awaiting transfer to American officials.

The years’ long hostage case was resolved after the Islamabad government notified the U.S. government several days ago it had located the family and was close to securing their release.

“We’re tremendously grateful to the government of Pakistan for securing the release of Caitlan Coleman and her family,” said a senior official. “The relationship with Pakistan has had its challenges but this is exactly the kind of action that will put the relationship on the right track.

DOJ Orders FBI To Investigate Weinstein Sex Allegations – News Max

Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ Department of Justice has ordered the FBI to investigate the sexual misconduct allegations surrounding Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.

According to The Daily Mail, the FBI will open a probe into what Weinstein may have done to several women over the years. Weinstein was fired from the production company he founded and that bears his name last weekend after news reports surfaced that he had sexually harassed several women.

Subsequent reports suggest he may have even committed rape.

TMZ reported Tuesday that Weinstein planned to fly to Europe to begin sex therapy treatment in an unknown country. If he were to stay in Europe and take refuge there, and criminal charges were eventually brought against him in the U.S., he might be able to avoid prosecution by staying put because some European countries do not conduct extraditions to the U.S.

Utah Cop Fired After Arresting Nurse Who Wouldn’t Draw Blood – USA Today

For now, the court did not act on a separate challenge brought by the state of Hawaii, which the court had also agreed to hear. That case also features a challenge to a separate 120-day refugee ban, which has not yet expired.

That case could yet be dismissed once the refugee ban expires on Oct. 24, meaning the court remains unlikely to issue a final ruling on whether the ban was lawful. The justices were unanimous in deciding against ruling in the Maryland case…

California’s sheriffs are calling on the GOP-controlled Congress to intervene and pass a federal law to change the state’s sanctuary state status, warning the law that ties their hands too tightly will only increase the chances of another high-profile tragedy.

The sanctuary state law, which Gov. Jerry Brown (D.) signed Thursday but doesn’t go into effect until January, is the most far-reaching of its kind in the country and places sharp limits on how local law enforcement agencies can communicate with federal immigration authorities.

It would also make it a crime to enforce federal immigration laws on the premises of all schools, hospitals, libraries, and courthouses in state, which is home to an estimated two million immigrants.

Making the entire state a sanctuary for illegal immigrants is California’s latest salvo in its war with President Donald Trump over immigration policy, but law enforcement officials say it’s the state’s citizens who will pay the price with higher crime rates and avoidable tragedies…

The head of the federal deportation agency said Friday his agents will now have to go out into communities in California even more frequently to round up illegal immigrants, now that the state has embraced a full sanctuary policy.

Tom Homan, acting director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, made the comments a day after California Gov. Jerry Brown signed SB54 into law, canceling almost all cooperation state and local authorities can give to federal deportation officers.

He said the effect could be even more rank-and-file illegal immigrants snared because federal officers will now have to operate out in the community, rather than focus chiefly on prisons and jails.

“ICE will have no choice but to conduct at-large arrests in local neighborhoods and at worksites, which will inevitably result in additional collateral arrests, instead of focusing on arrests at jails and prisons where transfers are safer for ICE officers and the community,” Mr. Homan warned…

Obama’s Favorite Traitor Bowe Bergdahl Expected To Plead Guilty To Deserting His Post – Fox News

Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is expected to plead guilty later this month to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy rather than face trial for leaving his Afghanistan post in 2009, The Associated Press reported.

Two sources said the Idaho native would submit the plea later this month and sentencing would start Oct. 23. The AP did not name the sources.

Bergdahl’s lawyer declined to comment when contacted by Fox News. He faces up to five years in prison on the desertion charge and a life sentence for misbehavior.

Bergdahl, 31, who was serving with an Alaska-based infantry regiment, deserted his Afghanistan post in 2009, when he was 23 years old…

154,345,000: Record Number Of Americans Employed In September – Washington Free Beacon

The number of employed Americans hit a record high of 154,345,000 in September, according to the latest numbers released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. There were 906,000 more Americans who gained employment over the month, and more individuals joined the labor force as well.

There were 575,000 more Americans who joined the labor force in September, while 368,000 fewer left.

The number of Americans not participating in the labor force declined from 94,785,000 in August to 94,417,000 in September. The bureau counts those not in the labor force as people who do not have a job and did not actively seek one in the past four weeks.

The labor force participation rate, which is the percentage of the population that has a job or actively looked for one in the past month, increased from 62.9 percent in August to 63.1 percent in September. The participation rate hasn’t been this high since March of 2014.

The Harvey Weinstein Scandal And The Silent Left’s Stunning Hypocrisy – Stephen Miller

“Who is Harvey Weinstein?” is a perfectly acceptable question in light of a bombshell story The New York Times broke Thursday that reports decades of his alleged serial sexual harassment and settlements with women in Hollywood.

Putting it bluntly, Harvey Weinstein, for a time, was the most powerful producer and studio head in Hollywood. He is almost singlehandedly responsible for the indie-to-mainstream film explosion in the 90’s (backing “Pulp Fiction,” “Good Will Hunting” and “Shakespeare in Love” to name just a few examples). His influence in Hollywood is unparalleled.

But it’s his influence out of Hollywood that has parts of media and the political left flummoxed to the point of silence. Weinstein, fresh off producing a media-hailed documentary titled “The Hunting Ground,” about sexual assault on college campuses, has also taken a leave from his production company, The Weinstein Company. Who would have guessed the only real hunting ground, according to women interviews by the newspaper, was Harvey Weinstein’s casting couch?…

“In the aftermath of the evil and senseless attack in Las Vegas, the American people are looking for answers as to how future tragedies can be prevented,” Wayne LaPierre and Chris Cox said in a joint statement. “Unfortunately, the first response from some politicians has been to call for more gun control.

No, The U.S. Didn’t Just Take A Stand For Executing Gay People – Reason

Did the Trump administration just take a stand for executing gay people? No, but I understand if the internet’s been giving you that impression.

Countless journalists spread the story on Twitter, and several LGBTQ publications repeated it uncritically.

But the resolution wasn’t focused exclusively on executing gay people. It came out against executing anyone. Whether or not you favor the death penalty – for the record, I’m very much against it – this wasn’t something any country that allows the death penalty would have supported. The Obama administration voted against a similar resolution in December 2016.

A Constitutional Right To Win? The Democrats Want One – Matt Walter

Does the Democratic Party have a constitutional right to win a minimum number of elections? Of course not, but that’s what lawyers for a group of Wisconsin Democrats effectively argued at the Supreme Court in Gill v. Whitford.

Despite decades of experience and legal precedent to the contrary, Democrats are asking the Court to enter the political realm and find for the first time that a legislative map is unconstitutional on partisan-related grounds. The Supreme Court should take a pass.

In the Badger State, which voted for President Trump and where Republicans hold nearly all statewide elected offices, Democrats ask the Supreme Court to overturn Wisconsin’s legislative map because their party has failed to translate its statewide vote totals into a proportionate number of wins in the state legislature.

Never mind that America has a winner-take-all system, where winning individual elections, not running up votes, is what matters.,,

IT Aide’s Lawyer: Democrat Congressmen Ordered The Systematic Falsification Of Spending Records – Daily Caller

House Democrats ordered the systematic falsification of records showing how they spend their taxpayer-provided office budgets, according to lawyers for two former House information technology (IT) aides.

It’s a remarkable accusation that pits sitting lawmakers against the former aides, Imran Awan, his brothers Abid and Jamal, and his wife Hina Alvi. Imran was arrested in July while trying to board a flight to Pakistan, and then indicted on four counts of bank fraud involving moving money to that country. Imran and Hina, who was also indicted, face a court date Friday.

One of Imran’s lawyers, Aaron Page, acknowledged the invoicing discrepancy Aug. 21, telling The Daily Caller News Foundation, “This is just how things have been done for forever. This is what experienced members of Congress expect: to expedite things, they adjust the pricing.”

The legislation would also authorize the federal government to reimburse states up to $35 million for use of National Guard assets to reinforce border security.

Victim Of ‘Draw Muhammad’ ISIS-Inspired Terror Attack Sues FBI, Accuses James Comey Of Cover-Up – Washington Examiner

The security guard wounded in a 2015 ISIS-inspired terrorist attack at the “Draw Muhammad” event in Garland, Texas, is suing the FBI, and argues the bureau is liable for his damages because an agent “solicited, encouraged, directed and aided members of ISIS in planning and carrying out the May 3 attack,” according to court documents filed Monday.

If the plaintiff, Bruce Joiner, doesn’t settle with the bureau, the case could shake loose hundreds of documents from both local and federal officials about what happened that day, and could answer the question of why an FBI agent was in a car directly behind the attackers and did nothing as the events unfolded.

In May of 2015, Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi drove from their home in Phoenix to the Curtis Culwell center in Garland where the “Draw Muhammad” contest was being held, in a car loaded with three rifles, three handguns, and about 1,500 rounds of ammunition.

U.S. House Of Representatives Passes 20-Week Abortion Ban – Washington Free Beacon

The House of Representatives voted 237 to 189 to pass a ban on abortion after 20 weeks on Tuesday.

H.R. 36, officially the “Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act,” was reintroduced by Rep. Trent Franks (R., Ariz.) in January; House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R., Calif.) announced last week that the bill would be brought to the floor.

The act would make it a crime to perform an abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy. Violators would be subject to a fine, up to five years in prison, or both. It would make exceptions for the life of the mother, and for pregnancies that are the result of rape or incest. The act also specifically targets abortion providers; women who undergo an abortion after 20 weeks will not be prosecuted for violating the act’s terms.

Similar bills failed in 2013 and 2015, but this time the bill has support from the White House.

ESPN Will Not Televise The National Anthem On ‘Monday Night Football’ – Circa

ESPN says it will not televise the national anthem before the National Football League’s next game.

“ESPN MNF will not carry the anthem live,” spokesman Mac Nwulu told Sporting News, referencing the latest “Monday Night Football” contest.

The Kansas City Chiefs are scheduled to host the Washington Redskins in Kansas City, Missouri late Monday amid raging national debate over the NFL’s handling of national anthem protests.

ESPN previously passed on showing live NFL player protests during the league’s Week 4 games last weekend, and its treatment of Monday’s competition continues that trend.

Some Twitter users on Monday criticized ESPN’s move after the sports network televised the anthem playing live during the NFL’s Week 3.

CNN is having their infamous “audio issues” again.

The fake news network cut off Puerto Rico’s Attorney General when he began to criticize San Juan’s Mayor, Carmen Yulín Cruz.

Cruz has been extremely critical of President Trump’s amazing job handling the devastation of Puerto Rico by Hurricane Maria, and has received some criticism of her own, from her fellow Puerto Ricans.

Multiple sources within Puerto Rico’s political circles have described Cruz as being a “political opportunist” and “overly dramatic,” and portray her attacks on President Trump as politically motivated.

Georgetown Bank Teller Steals $185,000 From Homeless Customer With Garbage Bag Full Of Cash – Zero Hedge

Where did all this money come from?

That’s probably the first question that Phelon Davis of District Heights, Maryland, asked himself when a homeless man shuffled into the Wells Fargo branch in Georgetown where Davis worked as a teller three years ago and tried to deposit a garbage bag full of cash.

His next question was probably “do you think he’d notice if some of it went missing?”

Instead of helping the customer deposit the money into his account, Davis instead decided to take advantage of the situation, setting up a fraudulent second account under the customers’ name and eventually stealing more than $185,000 from the man, according to the Washington Post.

The 29-year-old bank teller stole more than $185,000 from a homeless customer who tried to deposit a garbage bag full of cash at a Wells Fargo branch in Georgetown.

In a deal with prosecutors, Davis pleaded guilty this week to one federal felony count of interstate transportation of stolen property, which is punishable by up to 10 years in prison…

High School Football Players Kicked Off Team For Protesting During Anthem – Daily Caller

A coach kicked a two Texan high school football players off of the team after the players protested during the national anthem Friday.

Senior Larry McCullough knelt and sophomore Cedric Ingram-Lewis put his fist up in the air during the national anthem before Victory & Praise Christian Academy’s football game, reported the Houston Chronicle. Ronnie Mitchem, the team’s coach and pastor, kicked them off the team directly afterwards.

“I don’t have any problem with those young men,” Mitchem told the Chronicle. “We’ve had a good relationship. They chose to do that and they had to pay for the consequences.”

Mitchem, a former Marine, had previously told the school’s players that he did not want them to kneel during the anthem, believing that the action offends veterans and distracts rather than calls attention to issues. The coach said he wanted the players to express their discontent by authoring and distributing a paper about political issues that troubled them, or by kneeling in the end zone after a touchdown…

More Than 92% Of Voters In Iraqi Kurdistan Back Independence – The Guardian

More than 92% of voters in Iraqi Kurdistan have opted for independence, according to election monitors, in an overwhelming endorsement of a proposed split from Baghdad that has sparked increasing threats of air and land blockades that could be imposed as early as Friday.

The result came after Iraq’s parliament authorised the prime minister, Haider al-Abadi, to send troops into areas disputed between Arabs and Kurds that were contentiously included in the ballot.

Euphoria on the streets of Erbil in recent days has been met with sharply increasing tension in the region, which is likely to escalate in the wake of the result.

Baghdad has threatened to close Kurdish airspace at 6pm (1500 GMT) on Friday and Turkey says it is considering whether to shut its frontier with Kurdistan and impose a trade ban.

But in an attempt to calm ever more heated rhetoric, Abadi appeared to rule out the use of military force, saying on Wednesday: “We don’t want a fight between Iraqi citizens.”…

Networks Told NFL Cameramen To Avoid Shots Of Booing Crowds – Zero Hedge

President Donald Trump’s feud with the NFL erupted nearly a week ago when he demanded that NFL franchise owners should “get that son of a b***h off the field” when they see players kneeling during the national anthem.

Since then, league owners have discovered, to their surprise, that millions of Americans – and more importantly, millions of NFL fans – agree with the president, who encouraged them to boycott the league until it agrees to ban kneeling during the anthem.

So far, evidence suggests that fans have heeded the president’s call to boycott the league. NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” last weekend recorded its worst weekly ratings in years. Overall, ratings are down 11% from last year, according to the Associated Press.

Is it permissible to desecrate the American flag for educational purposes? That question is at the center of a raging firestorm in suburban Chicago after a public high school allowed teachers to desecrate an American flag – in the school’s library.

It was a one-day exhibit at York High School on Sept. 26. Staff members from the English and social sciences departments placed an American flag on the floor in the school’s library as part of a project on First Amendment rights. Students were not permitted to walk-on or deface the flag.

Trump Preparing Executive Order To Let Americans Purchase Health Insurance Across State Lines – Washington Examiner

President Trump is preparing an executive order to allow people to purchase health insurance across state lines, a reform conservatives have long championed as a way to bring costs down and stir greater competition in the national marketplace.

“I think there’s going to be big news from the White House in the next week or two, something they can do on their own,” Paul told MSNBC, adding that Trump “can legalize on his own the ability of individuals to join a group or a health association across state lines and buy insurance.”

A Senate GOP source told the Washington Examiner the executive action is considered “a done deal” and likely to be announced “in the next few weeks.”…

Governor Moonbeam Signs Bill Moving California Primary To March – KQED
.

.
In an attempt to make California more relevant in presidential primaries, Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation Wednesday that will move the state’s June primary to March.

The change is likely to make California among the first handful of states to weigh in on the 2020 presidential race.

“The intent of the bill was to put our voters at the front seat in choosing the next president and helping us drive a different agenda at the national level,” said Sen. Ricardo Lara, D-Bell Gardens, who carried the early-primary legislation.

In years past, presidential candidates have largely ignored deep-blue California, where it’s incredibly expensive to campaign because of the sheer size of the state and its huge population…

Muslim IT Spy Funneling ‘Massive’ Data Off Congressional Server; Democrats Claim It’s Child’s Homework – Washington Standard

Democratic congressional aides made unauthorized access to a House server 5,400 times and funneled “massive” amounts of data off of it.

But there’s nothing to see here, Democrats told the Washington Post: They were just storing and then re-downloading homework assignments for Imran Awan’s elementary-school aged kids and family pictures.

A congressional source with direct knowledge of the incident contradicted the Post’s account, saying that now-indicted IT aide Imran Awan and his associates “were moving terabytes off-site so they could quote ‘work on the files’” and that they desperately tried to hide what was on the server when caught, providing police with what law enforcement immediately recognized as falsified evidence and an indication of criminal intent.

The Post described the amount of data improperly flowing out of the congressional network as “massive.”

One congressional source told Circa it was “terabits.”…

Russian Troops Build Up On North Korean Border After Shock Missile Launch – Daily Star
.

.
Dramatic pictures show a huge number of troops arriving on Kim Jong-un’s borders in a clear show of strength from the Kremlin. Soldiers can be seen patrolling the top of the infamous Zaozyonara Hill – historically used as a meeting point between Russia, China and the rogue nation.

And chillingly, Putin’s men can see directly into the tubby tyrant’s territory from the vantage point. The move comes amid fears Russia could wade into the ongoing nuclear crisis in the region – further heightened after an unexpected missile test yesterday.

Pyongyang is yet to respond to Moscow’s apparent change of stance. The Kremlin has outwardly called for calm as Donald Trump wages his war of words on the hermit kingdom…

Maine Governor Tells Sheriffs They’ll Be Fired For Defying U.S. Immigration Officials – CNS

On Tuesday, Republican Maine Gov. Paul LePage warned his state’s sheriffs that he’ll fire anyone who defies his order to cooperate with federal immigration enforcement officials.

In a letter to Maine’s sheriffs, LePage explicitly threatened to remove any sheriff who refuses to comply with Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE) requests to extend the detention of arrested individuals suspected of violating federal immigration law.

The governor’s letter was prompted by rouge sheriffs who have said they won’t comply with ICE requests, The Daily Caller reports:

The letter, which references LePage’s authority to dismiss Sheriffs who defy his orders, appears to be directed at Cumberland County Sheriff Kevin Joyce. Joyce informed ICE in a Sept. 14 letter that he would not comply with requests to detain arrested individuals beyond their scheduled release date, absent a warrant.

“We have a couple sheriffs who say they’re not going to be working with ICE,” LePage told [Radio Host Laura] Ingraham…

Congressman Mo Brooks is urging President Trump to end federal funding for professional sports teams that disrespect the American flag or the National Anthem.

In a letter, Congressman Brooks writes, “Federal law about the American flag and national anthem is clear.” Quoting federal statutes, Brooks writes, “The flag represents a living country and is itself considered a living thing.” Quoting yet another federal statutes, Brooks writes, “During rendition of the national anthem when the flag is displayed, all persons present should face the flag and stand at attention with their right hand over their heart.”

Brooks asks President Trump to withhold all federal taxpayer dollars that directly or indirectly support any professional sports team or league that refuses to display proper decorum for America’s flag or national anthem…

One Million Christians To Pray Rosary On Poland’s Border Commemorating Historical Defeat Of Islam – Breitbart

Poland’s bishops have urged the nation’s Catholics to join a massive rosary prayer crusade along the country’s 2,000-mile border to pray for the salvation of their country.

Organizers say they expect up to a million people to participate in the “Rosary on the Borders” event on October 7, the anniversary of the Battle of Lepanto, where “the Christian fleet overcame the Muslim armada, saving Europe from Islamization.”

The Catholic Feast of the Holy Rosary was established by Pope Pius V in 1571 as “Our Lady of Victory” after the so-called Holy League won a landmark victory over the Ottoman Turks at the Battle of Lepanto.

On October 7th, 1571, a fleet of ships assembled by a coalition of Christian nations fought an intense battle against the forces of the invading Ottoman Empire. The unexpected victory of the so-called “Holy League” radically curbed efforts by the Ottoman Turks to control the Mediterranean, “causing a seismic shift in international relations from East to West.”…

A Dallas jury ordered JPMorgan Chase to pay more than $4 billion in damages for mishandling the estate of a former American Airlines executive.

Jo Hopper and two stepchildren won a probate court verdict over claims that JPMorgan mismanaged the administration of the estate of Max Hopper, who was described as an airline technology innovator by the family’s law firm.

The bank, which was hired by the family in 2010 to independently administer the estate of Hopper, was found in breach of its fiduciary duties and contract. In total, JP Morgan Chase was ordered to pay at least $4 billion in punitive damages, approximately $4.7 million in actual damages, and $5 million in attorney fees…

DirecTV Offering Angry ‘NFL Sunday Ticket’ Customers Refunds – Zero Hedge

In the first reported case of corporate blowback involving the ongoing Trump vs NFL feud, the WSJ reports that DirecTV is letting some angry customers cancel subscriptions to its Sunday Ticket package of NFL games and obtain refunds “if they cite players’ national anthem protests as the reason”, according to customer service representatives.

While DirecTV’s regular Sunday Ticket policy doesn’t allow refunds once the season is under way, the representatives said they are making exceptions this season, which began in September, in response to the player’s growing protests, either kneeling or linking arms during the national anthem.

DirecTV service representatives contacted by The Wall Street Journal had different understandings of the policy. One said refunds to those concerned about the anthem protests were only offered to subscribers with certain offers or plans. One representative said full refunds were available for those who complained about anthem protests…

Roy Moore Defeats Luther Strange In Alabama Special Election – Washington Examiner

Roy Moore defeated Sen. Luther Strange on Tuesday in a closely watched special election for an Alabama Senate seat, as frustrated Republican voters rebuked their party’s leadership in Congress for failing to repeal Obamacare and deliver other marquee promises.

Moore, the former chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, removed twice for ignoring federal court orders, won despite President Trump’s endorsement of Strange. Angry Republicans in this low-turnout election sided with the candidate they perceived as the political outsider, versus the appointed incumbent who was defined by the support he received from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky.

The votes were tallied just as McConnell pulled the plug, yet again, on Senate legislation to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act…

Saudi Arabia To Lift Ban On Women Driving – Bloomberg

Saudi Arabia will allow women to drive cars, ending its status as the only country in the world to ban half the population from getting behind the wheel.

It’s the most dramatic move so far in the government’s bid to open up Saudi society, a counterpart to an ambitious program to modernize the economy that may soon see the oil-rich kingdom holding the world’s biggest IPO.

Women will be entitled to driving licenses starting in June next year, the official Saudi Press Agency reported, citing a royal decree. Committees from various ministries have been set up to examine implementation, and they’ll report within 30 days, the SPA said.

Saudi Arabia adheres to an austere version of Islam, and its curbs on women – as well as religious minorities – are a regular target for human rights activists. As well as being barred from the roads, Saudi women need the permission of a male guardian to marry or travel abroad…

Useless, RINO-Controlled Senate Won’t Vote On Graham-Cassidy Healthcare Bill – Daily Caller
.

.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is no longer expected to bring the Graham-Cassidy health care bill to the floor due to a lack of support. The legislation – recently introduced by Sens. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and Dean Heller of Nevada – was their final chance to use the Fiscal Year 2017 budget as a reconciliation tool to repeal and replace Obamacare.

Graham and Cassidy requested a vote on their measure not be held due to its narrow path to passage, Axios reports. McConnell announced last week he planned to bring the bill to the floor ahead of the Sept. 30 deadline, but after three members of his conference – Sens. Rand Paul, John McCain and Susan Collins – came out against the measure, leadership fell short of the 50-vote threshold needed to send the bill to the lower chamber…

Twitter To Expand Character Limit From 140 To 280 – Zero Hedge

And just like that, Twitter became a mini blog, as its 140-character limit died today after a long battle with Facebook.

Twitter is expanding its character limit on text posts to 280 characters from 140, starting with a subset of users, according to a post on the company’s blog. The company is describing the move as a test, but the writing is on the wall for this succinct art form. The company’s 140-character limit is survived by brands, publishers and personalities, who will miss its insistence on wit and getting to the point.

The move will likely also result in countless power users departing as the last thing they want is another Facebook-lite.

Commenting on the revolutionary shift, TWTR CEO Jack Dorsey said “this is a small change, but a big move for us. 140 was an arbitrary choice based on the 160 character SMS limit. Proud of how thoughtful the team has been in solving a real problem people have when trying to tweet. And at the same time maintaining our brevity, speed, and essence!”…

RINO Senator Corker Announces He Won’t Be Seeking Re-Election In 2018 – Breitbart

The statement read as follows:

After much thought, consideration and family discussion over the past year, Elizabeth and I have decided that I will leave the United States Senate when my term expires at the end of 2018.

When I ran for the Senate in 2006, I told people that I couldn’t imagine serving for more than two terms. Understandably, as we have gained influence, that decision has become more difficult. But I have always been drawn to the citizen legislator model, and while I realize it is not for everyone, I believe with the kind of service I provide, it is the right one for me.

I also believe the most important public service I have to offer our country could well occur over the next 15 months…
