Top Obama Official Squeals: ‘We Faked Climate Change Data’ – Your News Wire

Top Obama official Steven Koonin has become the latest Democrat to roll over and stab his former comrades in the back, telling the Wall Street Journal that Obama’s administration manipulated ‘climate change’ data to trick the public into accepting Democrat policies.

“What you saw coming out of the press releases about climate data, climate analysis, was, I’d say, misleading, sometimes just wrong,” said Koonin, former Undersecretary of the Department of Energy, referring to the Obama administration’s manipulations and lies.

According to Koonin’s explosive confession, departments responsible for environmental science either “misrepresented data” or “completely fabricated results” to justify the destructive policies of the Obama administration.

Scientists at NASA and the National Ocean and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) colluded with press officers to create deceitful press releases that propped up the former president’s agenda…

Russia Readies Back-Up System For Potential “Split With International Banking System” – Zero Hedge
.

.
The grand order of things could be undergoing some major overhauls. To put it more bluntly, a war to reset the global financial order is about to be unleashed.

Preparations inside Russia are being made in case the ultimate banking sanctions are placed on them, cutting off commerce inside the all-encompassing Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecomm SWIFT system – which runs credit, debt, and banking card transactions across a real time global network.

As it would be doled out by the banking elites, the price for misbehavior at the Kremlin could be ostracization from this global commerce vehicle.

But that isn’t the end of the story, Putin is readying his people to divorce from the international banking system altogether…

Wild Boars Rampage In Kirkuk Leaving Three ISIS Terrorists Dead – Iraqi News

Kirkuk (IraqiNews.com) Three Islamic State militants died late Sunday when wild boars attacked them in southern Kirkuk, a local source was quoted saying.

The animals went on a rampage near a farmland in al-Rashad region, an Islamic State pocket 53 kilometers south of Kirkuk. They attacked the militants and left three killed, according to the source.

Alsumaria News quoted the source saying that “Daesh (Islamic State) militants took revenge at the pigs that attacked the farmland,” but did not clarify the method.

Since emerging in 2014 to proclaim a self-styled “Islamic Caliphate”, ISIS members have held areas in southwestern Kirkuk, where thousands of civilians had to flee the group’s rule to refugee camps in the province and neighboring cities.

Local officials have repeatedly urged the government to hasten with security efforts to liberate ISIS-held regions in Kirkuk, but the Iraqi government is currently employing its full military power in the six-month-old campaign to retake Mosul, IS’s biggest stronghold in Iraq…

Islamic State militants have regularly executed civilians in Kirkuk over accusations of collaboration with security forces or attempting to flee the province to refugee camps.

The U.S. military has started moving parts of the controversial THAAD anti-missile defense system into a planned deployment site in South Korea, Yonhap news agency reported on Wednesday, amid high tensions over North Korea’s missile and nuclear programs.

The United States and South Korea have agreed to deploy THAAD in response to the threat of missile launches by North Korea but China says it will do little to deter the North while destabilizing the regional security balance.

Idiot Leftist Refuses To Believe DNA Test Proving He’s White – Daily Caller

A man refused to accept the results of his ancestry DNA test after it revealed he wasn’t black, according to a New York Times piece last week.

Two professors from West Chester University decided to do an in-depth analysis into various people’s ancestries and backgrounds. First they asked participants to guess the results. One of their participants, Bernard, came away very displeased when the test revealed he was mainly European and not at all black.

Bernard walked into the test identifying himself as “black.” He informed the professors ahead of time that despite having a white mother, his mother raised him to identify as a black man.

“My mother said, ‘I know you are me, but no cop is going to take the time to find out your mother is white,’” Bernard explained before the test. “She was very specific about raising me as a black man.”

Bernard’s test, however, revealed that he is only one percent African/Asian…

Treasonous, Obama-Appointed Judge Temporarily Blocks Part Of Trump’s Executive Order Defunding Sanctuary Cities – Daily Caller

A federal judge temporarily blocked a key portion of an immigration-related executive order Donald Trump signed in January that would allow the federal government to withhold funding from sanctuary cities.

U.S. District Court Judge William Orrick issued a nationwide preliminary injunction Tuesday that prevents the government from enforcing the part of order where it says the policy of the executive branch is to “ensure that jurisdictions that fail to comply with applicable federal law do not receive Federal funds, except as mandated by law.”

In his ruling on the lawsuit brought forth by San Francisco and by Santa Clara counties, Orrick said the cities – which shield illegal immigrants – would “suffer irreparable harm absent an injunction.”…

Ted Cruz Introduces Bill That Would Fund Border Wall With Money Seized From Drug Lords – The Hill

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) is introducing a bill to allow assets seized from drug lords, like Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, to fund President Trump’s proposed wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

Cruz’s bill, the Ensuring Lawful Collection of Hidden Assets to Provide Order Act, also known as the “El Chapo Act,” is a reference to the Mexican drug kingpin from the Sinaloa cartel.

The U.S. government is seeking $14 billion from the drug lord as part of its prosecution of Guzman.

“Fourteen billion dollars will go a long way toward building a wall that will keep Americans safe and hinder the illegal flow of drugs, weapons and individuals across our southern border,” Cruz said Tuesday, according to Axios.

Guzman was extradited from Mexico to the U.S. in January, pleading not guilty to a 17-charge indictment in a federal court in New York.

The charges allege that Guzman led a continuing criminal enterprise responsible for drug trafficking and conspiracy between 1989 and 2014…

Rumors started spreading last week that House Republicans were close to a deal on repealing Obamacare, and now Congressman Mark Meadows says a repeal bill will pass by the end of May.

Trump’s Lawyer Launches Legal Action Against BuzzFeed For Publishing ‘Completely Fabricated’ Dossier – Washington Times

Michael D. Cohen, President Trump’s personal attorney, says he has instructed his own attorney to investigate legal action against BuzzFeed, which posted an opposition research “dossier” that accused Mr. Cohen without proof of a conspiracy with Russian agents.

Mr. Cohen told The Washington Times that he also is considering a lawsuit against former British spy Christopher Steele, who wrote the gossipy 35-page dossier that the liberal news website posted on Jan. 10.

Mr. Steele was paid by a Hillary Clinton supporter, via the Democratic Party-linked firm Fusion GPS, to gather dirt on candidate Trump last summer and fall. GPS circulated the Steele memos to reporters and Democrats.

But it was not until BuzzFeed posted the dossier that some people named in it learned that they were accused of wrongdoing.

In Mr. Cohen’s case, Mr. Steele accused him of traveling to Prague in the last week of August to meet with Russian agents to devise a plan to cover up the supposed Trump-Russia hacking of Democratic Party email servers…

Mexico On High Alert After Radioactive Material Is Stolen – Daily Express

The Mexican government has placed nine states on high alert after radioactive material capable of creating a dirty bomb was stolen near the nation’s second largest city. The Iridium 192, a potentially highly unstable material used in radiography equipment, was stolen on the outskirts of tourist hotspot Guadalajara.

Luis Felipe Puente‏, head of national emergency services, placed nine states on high alert after the material disappeared just half a day’s drive from the Texan border.

Iridium 192, which has a half-life of 73 days, is one of a small number of radioactive materials suitable for use in an act of radiological terror. But authorities are concerned the radioactive isotope may have been stolen accidentally, with thieves unwittingly holding onto the destructive material after attempting to steal the pickup truck it was housed in…

Nasdaq Hits 6,000 For The First Time – Business Insider

U.S. stocks opened higher on Tuesday, building on a day-earlier rally, spurred by a raft of strong corporate earnings and an expected tax reform plan.

The tech-heavy Nasdaq crossed the 6,000 mark for the first time just after the market opened.

Better-than-expected quarterly profits from Dow components, including Caterpillar and McDonald’s, helped the blue-chip index outperform other major Wall Street indexes in active trading.

Amazon Immediately Regrets Giving Muslims A Job After Nasty Payback They Just Got For It – Freedom Daily

Employers at the Amazon headquarters stationed in the liberal city of Seattle, Washington thought they were doing the “tolerant” thing to prove to the rest of the U.S. that Muslims can make great employees with hiring several on their staff. They soon learned what happens when ignorance and Islam collide after showing up to work recently and getting a nasty surprise from these ungrateful immigrants they had generously hired. It didn’t take long for the mega-retailer to return the favor with a special surprise of their own.

Thanks to an eight-year apology tour under Barack Obama, Muslims have become entitled to believe that whatever they want, they should get, or face condemnation after claims they are being discriminated against. No other religion in the U.S. gets as many accommodations made for them as Muslims do, which they intentionally created to be this way. Ignorant liberals fell hard into their trap, coming to their defense and going out of their way to give them special opportunities, only to have to learn the hard way that they were played…

Dozens Of ‘Juveniles’ Swarm Communter Train In Oakland, Terrorize And Rob Passengers – San Francisco Gate

BART police are beefing up patrols at Oakland stations after dozens of juveniles terrorized riders Saturday night when they invaded the Coliseum Station and commandeered at least one train car, forcing passengers to hand over bags and cell phones and leaving at least two with head injuries.

The incident occurred around 9:30 p.m. Saturday. Witnesses told police that 40 to 60 juveniles flooded the station, jumped the fare gates and rushed to the second-story train platform. Some of the robbers apparently held open the doors of a Dublin-bound train car while others streamed inside, confronting and robbing and in some cases beating riders.

“I’ve been there 24 years and this is the first time I’ve heard of anything like this happening,” said Keith Garcia, a BART police officer and union president.

“Iran had a significantly higher number of individuals, of course, at the beginning of this negotiation that they would have liked to have seen released,” one senior Obama administration official told reporters in a background briefing arranged by the White House, adding that “we were able to winnow that down to these seven individuals, six of whom are Iranian-Americans.”

New Study Calls EPA’s Labeling Of CO2 A Pollutant ‘Totally False’ – Daily Caller

Wallace, Christy and D’Aleo – a statistician, a climatologist and meteorologist, respectively – released a study claiming to invalidate EPA’s 2009 endangerment finding, which allowed the agency to regulate CO2 as a pollutant.

Leftist Ossoff Fails To Garner 50% Of Vote In Georgia Special Election, Faces Handel In June Runoff – Breitbart

It was a photo finish in the “jungle primary” special election in Georgia’s Sixth Congressional District on Tuesday to select a replacement for Rep. Tom Price (R-GA), punctuated by unusual technical reporting delays from Fulton County, the largest county in the district.

In the early hours of Wednesday morning, thirty-year-old Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff fell just short of the 50-percent-plus-one vote total he needed to avoid a June runoff with the GOP’s Karen Handel, the former Georgia Secretary of State who finished in a distant second.

Claremont Snowflakes Write Hairbrained Open Letter Characterizing Truth As A ‘Myth’ – PJ Media

U.S. Deploys Two More Aircraft Carriers To Korean Peninsula – Zero Hedge

According to a report by South Korea’s primary news outlet, Yonhap, the Pentagon has directed a total of three U.S. aircraft carriers toward the Korean Peninsula, citing a South Korean government source.

Yonhap reports that in addition to the CVN-70 Carl Vinson, which is expected to arrive off the South Korean coast on April 25, the CVN-76 Ronald Reagan – currently in home port in Yokosuka, Japan – and the CVN-68 Nimitz carrier group – currently undergoing final pre-deployment assessment, Composite Training Unit Exercise off Oregon – will enter the Sea of Japan next week.

USS Carl Vinson, surrounded by a fleet of U.S. warships, was sent by Washington toward the Korean Peninsula in the beginning of April.

While details are scarce, and we would urge confirmation from U.S.-based sources, Yonhap also reports that according to the government source the operation of three aircraft carriers in the same location is unusual, and demonstrates the U.S. commitment to North Korea…

Unions Spent $1.7 Billion On Mostly Leftist Politicians In 2016 – Washington Free Beacon

Organized labor spent a record $1.7 billion on politics and lobbying during the 2016 election cycle, with the vast majority of money coming from member dues and supporting Democrats.

The National Institute for Labor Relations Research (NILRR), a nonprofit union watchdog, found that unions spent $1.713 billion on political activities and lobbying. The watchdog group analyzed federal labor filings that disclose how much unions spend on political activities at the federal, state, and local level, as well as Federal Election Commission records collected by OpenSecrets.com.

Stan Greer, the researcher behind the study, said 75 percent of the money spent on politics came from union treasuries rather than campaign PACs or other independent union-backed political operations.

“Big Labor is increasingly turning its focus away from workplace matters and more and more towards buying political influence,” Greer said in a statement.

NILRR has tracked union political spending throughout the 21st century, finding that unions have significantly ramped up their spending in the last four years…

Sen. Paul: ‘Somebody Was Spying On The Trump Campaign’ – American Mirror

On Monday, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul responded to FBI Director James Comey’s denial of President Trump’s “wiretapping” claims, telling Neil Cavuto of Fox News that “somebody was spying on the Trump campaign” adding that Mike Flynn “lost his job” because of it.

“Everybody admits that somebody spied on Mike Flynn, and he was part of the Trump campaign,” Paul said. “It sounds like what the president said has already been proven to be true.”

The senator then reminded Cavuto that whoever leaked this confidential information committed a serious crime. “Somebody listened to Mike Flynn’s conversations and revealed it to the press, which is a felony, and you don’t do that unless somehow you eavesdropped on his phone conversation.”

“The media’s been kinda confused on this, they think there has to be an old-fashioned bug placed on a wire,” Paul continued. “If you haven’t looked lately most of our cell phones don’t have wires, so wiretapping is a broad term for surveillance.”…

Economic Basket Case Venezuela Stops Printing Money Data For Obvious Reasons – Zero Hedge

More than a year after hyperinflating banana republic Venezuela stopped reporting official inflation data, Venezuela has stopped publishing money supply data, depriving the general public of the last, and best, available tool to ascertain soaring inflation in what has become the world’s worst-performing economy.

Then again, one hardly needs official data to confirm the blistering wave of hyperinflation sweeping through the nation which has seen the value of the bolivar disintegrate under the Maduro regime.

The money supply indicator suddenly stopped appearing on the central bank’s website on Feb. 24. Despite the halt of CPI data, consumer price rises are widely seen to be in triple digits, driven by an unraveling socialist system in which many people struggle to obtain meals and medicines.

The M2 money supply was up by nearly 180% in mid-February from a year earlier, according to the central bank before it halted the release of the weekly data without explanation last month Reuters reports…

Montano asked her for sex.

Moreover, every public California institution of higher learning has declared itself a “sanctuary campus” including the University of California whose president Janet Napolitano is a former Obama appointee to head the Department of Homeland Security itself.

‘Environmentalists’ Stick Taxpayers With $1.1 Million Cleanup Bill After Pipeline Protest – American Mirror

Congress Demands Investigation Into Obama Regime Meddling In Foreign Elections – Washington Free beacon

A group of leading senators is calling on newly installed Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to immediately launch an investigation into efforts by the Obama administration to sway foreign elections by sending taxpayer funds to “extreme and sometimes violent political activists” that promote leftist causes, according to a copy of the letter.

The lawmakers disclosed multiple conversations with foreign diplomats who outlined active political meddling by the Obama administration’s State Department, including the use of taxpayer funds to support leftist causes in Macedonia, Albania, Latin America, and Africa.

A portion of this State Department funding appears to have gone to organizations supported by the controversial liberal billionaire George Soros, according to the letter, which was authored by Republican Sens.

Guatemalan Court Removes Official Who Supports Trump’s Immigration Policies – Daily Caller

Guatemala is facing a potential constitutional crisis as one of the country’s most politicized courts nullified the congressional appointment of an outspoken Guatemalan who supports the Trump administration’s immigration policies, The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned.

Unión Nacional de la Esperanza, or UNE, the country’s second largest political party that has ties to the country’s former Marxist guerrilla leaders, moved quickly to oust and nullify Melanie Müllers’ appointment as executive secretary of the National Committee of Guatemalan Migrants, known as Conamigua. The group filed a complaint with the country’s most politicized judicial arm called the Constitutional Court on March 1.

Müllers has boldly staked out a unique Guatemalan position endorsing the U.S. government’s new policy of tightly closing the Mexico border and returning illegal immigrants back to their home countries.

The charismatic woman won an overwhelming election on Jan. 17 as the agency’s leader in a vote by the full Guatemalan Congress…

Trump Orders Audit Of All Executive Branch Departments In Effiort To Save Money, Improve Services – Fox News

The legislation introduced by state Rep. Jessica Farrar (D) would impose a $100 civil penalty for “masturbatory emissions” that take place outside of a woman’s vagina or a hospital.

16 Reasons Not To Live In California – Zero Hedge

It has been said that “as California goes, so goes the nation”. That is why it is such a shame what is happening to that once great state. At one time, California seemed to be the epicenter of the American Dream. Featuring some of the most beautiful natural landscapes in the entire world, the gorgeous weather and booming economy of the state inspired people from all over the world to move to the state.

But now people are moving out of the state by the millions, because life in California has literally become a nightmare for so many people.

New York To Scrap Literacy Test For Teachers In The Name Of Diversity – Daily Caller

Prospective teachers in New York will likely no longer have to pass a basic reading and writing literacy exam, the Associated Press is reporting.

Just 41 percent of black teaching candidates and 46 percent of Hispanics passed the test on their first try, compared to 64 percent of white candidates.

The multiple choice exam is meant to ensure high standards among prospective teachers, which many teaching preparation programs have struggled to do.

A December 2016 study by the National Council on Teacher Quality found that 44 percent of teaching programs “cannot ensure that most of their incoming candidates are among the top half of college students.”

Feds Paid $1 Billion In Social Security Benefits To People With No Social Security Number – Washington Free Beacon

The Social Security Administration paid $1 billion in benefits to individuals who did not have a Social Security Number (SSN), according to a new audit.

The agency’s inspector general found errors in the government’s documentation for representative payees, otherwise known as individuals who receive retirement or disability payments on behalf of another person who is incapable of managing the benefits themselves.

The audit released Friday found thousands of cases where there was no SSN on file.

Over the last decade, the agency paid $1 billion to 22,426 representative payees who “did not have an SSN, and SSA had not followed its policy to retain the paper application.”

“Furthermore, unless it takes corrective action, we estimate SSA will pay about $182.5 million in benefits, annually, to representative payees who do not have an SSN or paper application supporting their selection,” the inspector general said.

The inspector general also found the agency paid $853.1 million in benefits since 2004 to individuals who had been terminated as representative payees by the agency.

The inspector general said the errors occurred because the agency did not keep paper applications supporting an individual’s case to receive benefits on behalf of another and did not update its system if their status was terminated…

Iranian Dissidents Demand Investigation Into Islamic Regime’s Secret U.S. Lobbying Network – Washington Free Beacon

The group of dissidents, composed of prominent Iranian voices that oppose the hardline regime in Tehran, says that Congress is not doing enough to expose the Iranian regime’s lobbying efforts in D.C. and propaganda network, which is said to include some at VOA Persia.

Iranian-American groups claiming to represent American interests are said to be carrying water for the Islamic regime inside the White House and on Capitol Hill, according to these dissident voices.

The letter cites VOA’s Persian service as a source of pro-Iran corruption. The Free Beacon has reported multiple times on claims that VOA has been infiltrated by Iran regime loyalists who seek to spin coverage in a favorable way for Tehran. In one instance, an Iranian dissident was barred from appearing on VOA Persia for voicing critical opinions about the regime.

The 41-year-old Sandusky is being held on $200,000 bail and is prohibited from any contact with minors.

Sandusky’s father, Jerry, was convicted of sexually abusing 10 boys and was sentenced to at least 30 years in prison at the age of 68 – essentially a life sentence.

According to police, Jeffrey Sandusky attempted to obtain explicit material from a minor under the age of 18 – referred to as victim No. 1 – via text messages in March 2016. The minor’s mother was dating Sandusky at the time and had been for six years. Sandusky lived with the woman and her children for five of those years…

New York State Worker Racks Up Nearly $180K In Overtime Pay – New York Post

A state technology worker more than tripled her salary last year by running up $179,930 in overtime, records show.

Deborah Casais walked off with total earnings of $247,757 working for the Office of Information Technology Services despite a base salary of $67,827.

That made the Albany-area woman the state overtime champ for 2016.

Casais did not respond to a message left at her home.

Her co-worker Peter Walton made $135,109.18 in overtime on top of the same $67,827 base salary, the records show.

A woman who answered the phone at his home in Latham, an Albany suburb, said he was not there. She refused to take a message and hung up.

Noted RINO Squish Says It’s “Highly Likely” The Senate Intelligence Committee Will Investigate General Flynn – Townhall

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters on Tuesday that it is “highly likely” the Senate Intelligence Committee will investigate former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn for his dealings with Russia and comments to President-elect Mike Pence.

On Tuesday, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said that Flynn was asked to resign by President Donald Trump.

“We got to a point not based on a legal issue, but based on a trust issue with a level of trust between the president and General Flynn had eroded to the point where he felt he had to make a change.

Kim Jong Un’s Estranged Brother Murdered In Malaysia – Bloomberg

The oldest half-brother of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un was murdered in Malaysia on Monday, according to a South Korean government official.

Kim Jong Nam, the eldest son of former leader Kim Jong Il, had lived outside the country for years. The official, who asked not to be identified due to government policy, said poison was involved in his death, but provided no other details.

Two unidentified women killed Kim Jong Nam at Kuala Lumpur’s airport with a poison needle before fleeing in a taxi, YTN television station reported, citing a government source.

Trump Administration Sanctions Venezuelan Vice President For Drug Trafficking – USA Today

The Trump administration imposed sanctions Monday against Venezuelan Vice President Tareck El Aissami, accusing him of playing a significant role in international drug trafficking.

The Treasury Department has been investigating El Aissami for years over his alleged relations with Venezuela’s largest convicted drug trafficker and a Middle Eastern militant group, resulting in the decision to designate him a narcotics trafficker under the federal “Kingpin Act.”

The department said he orchestrated drug shipments from a Venezuelan air base and multiple seaports, some weighing more than 2,200 pounds per shipment.

The department also sanctioned Samark Lopez Bello, a Venezeulan businessman accused of being El Aissami’s frontman. Lopez Bello helped launder money through a network of 13 companies in the U.S., Venezuela, Panama, the British Virgin Islands and the United Kingdom.

Treasury officials would not comment on whether the Justice Department will seek indictments against the two men. But the sanctions include freezing all their U.S.-based assets, which include a twin-engine Gulfstream jet, and blocking all their U.S.-based companies and properties…

Here Are The Top 3 Most Likely Replacements For General Flynn – Daily Signal

President Donald Trump is considering three former high-ranking military officials for the post of national security adviser, after the Monday resignation of Michael Flynn.

Trump is considering retired Lt. Gen. Keith Kellogg, retired Gen. David Petraeus, and retired Adm. Robert Harward to replace Flynn. Harward is reportedly the favorite to succeed Flynn. He served as a deputy to then-Gen. James Mattis while both were in U.S. Central Command and does not carry the controversy or age of the other picks.

“There are a handful of good options, but it’s clear he’s at the top of the list,” a senior administration official told Politico Tuesday.

Both Kellogg and Petraeus served critical roles in the U.S. war in Iraq. Kellogg served as a major figure in the 2004 Coalition Provisional Authority, which served as the government of Iraq until the nationwide elections in 2005. He is currently serving as the interim national security adviser to Trump, served as one of Flynn’s deputies in the White House, and is currently 72 years old.

Hungarian PM Cracks Down On Refugee Invasion, Calls Out George Soros For Using “Tons Of Money And Heavy Artillery” To Influence Politics – 100PercentFedUp

Will anyone our U.S. government call out and expose the effect 187 radical organizations directly funded by leftist George Soros have on our nation? When will our elected officials start exposing his influence Soros’ large tentacles have on influencing the Democrat Party and anarchist groups in America, leading to riots and unrest by paid protesters in America? Will the world continue to cower when it comes to the secret dealings of radical globalist George Soros, who is fighting for open-borders in Europe and in the U.S.? Or will we start to really expose him by openly discussing his actions and revealing the truth about his “seemingly benign” organizations like one brave Hungarian prime minister is doing?

Brazil’s Two Largest Newspapers Forced By Government To Delete Story Embarrassing To President – The Intercept

A major assault on basic press freedom occurred today in Brazil, perpetrated by the government of President Michel Temer, his wife, Marcela, and a Brazilian judge. As a result, the nation’s two largest newspapers – Folha de S.Paulo and O Globo – were forced to delete a news article that each had published about a matter of great public interest.

Because one of the goals in creating The Intercept was to defend and vindicate press freedom around the world, we are publishing the censored materials so that the public can see them (see below). Few things are more dangerous than politicians and courts joining to tell newspapers what they can and cannot report, and we will do what we can to rectify that attack on the public’s right to know.

The case in question arises out of the attempted blackmail of the first lady and the president by a hacker who last April cloned her iPhone and stole all of its data. The hacker, Silvonei Jose de Jesus Souza, was sentenced to five years and 11 months in prison for the attempted blackmail, after he demanded that Marcela pay him R$ 300,000 (US$ 90,000) to avoid disclosure of the materials.

Senate Confirms Steve Mnuchin For Treasury Secretary – Breitbart

The successful confirmation of President Donald Trump’s cabinet nominees continued when senators voted 53-to-47 to confirm Steven Mnuchin as Treasury Secretary Monday.

Mnuchin is a Wall Street financier, who has worked for Goldman Sachs and ran his own investment funds and vehicles. In the 2016 presidential campaign, Mnuchin was the national finance chairman for the president’s campaign.

After the “Great Recession,” in 2009, Mnuchin and his partners and investors purchased IndyMac, a troubled California bank that was in the center of the real estate boom and bust. Six years later, after Mnuchin renamed the bank OneWest and worked through its issues, he sold it off. However, Democrats targeted the way Mnuchin and his team worked through the issues, claiming that he was insensitive to people losing their homes because they could not keep up with mortgages from the old IndyMac bank.

The chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, Sen. Orrin Hatch (R.-Utah), said on the Senate floor shortly before the vote that these allegations were unfair and untrue.

Trump Readies Crackdown On H-1B Visa Abuse – Daily Caller

President Donald Trump is preparing an executive order aimed at revamping the H-1b visa program to ensure tech companies make a good faith effort to hire American workers before importing foreign workers.

The stated purpose of the H-1b program is to allow companies to temporarily import high-skilled workers when they can’t find American workers willing or able to do the job, but critics contend its true purpose is to help big businesses cut costs by importing less expensive workers. In the past several years, Disney, Southern California Edison, Fossil Group and others have together fired hundreds of American tech workers and forced them to train their foreign replacements, many of whom were flown in specifically to take their jobs.

A major overhaul to the program would have to happen through Congress, but Trump can make some changes via executive authority, and his administration is drafting an order, reports Bloomberg. Tech companies would have to prioritize American workers first under the draft order, and if they do import foreign workers, they would have to prioritize those who are the most skilled and highest paid…

During an anti-Trump protest in Seattle this weekend, an activist associated with the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement took to the megaphone to voice her support for, among other things, “killing people,” and “killing the White House.”
