.

.
Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials tried to hack Indiana’s state electoral system with at least 14,800 “scans” or hits between Nov. 1, 2016, to Dec. 16, 2016, The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group has learned.

The attacks are the second confirmed IT scanning assault by DHS officials against states that resisted then-President Barack Obama’s attempt to increase federal involvement in state and local election systems by designating them as “critical infrastructure” for national security.

Members of the National Association of Secretaries of State voted Saturday at their winter meeting to oppose the designation. They are asking President Donald Trump to overturn it…

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…

Remember that painting of protesters in St. Louis who have cops, depicted as pigs, pointing guns at them? The disagreement over the painting seemed to come to an end last month when the Architect of the Capitol concluded it violated rules for art hanging in the U.S. Capitol. Today the Hill reports that Rep. Lacy Clay will file a federal lawsuit against the Architect of the Capitol seeking to have it restored:

Clay will argue that the painting’s removal, which followed outcry from House Republicans and police advocacy groups, violated his constituent’s First Amendment rights to free expression.

Illegal Alien Charged With Murder One Month After Being Released From Jail – American Mirror

An illegal alien has been charged with murdering an American in Denver just one month after being released from jail.

Ever Valles is a criminal illegal immigrant who is one of two men to be charged in the killing of 32-year-old Tim Cruz, a Hispanic-American landscaper, at a Denver light rail station.

Valles and his accomplice Nathan Valdez allegedly attempted to rob the victim and then murdered him while he was waiting at the station, according to Fox 31 Denver.

The illegal alien was previously arrested in October by Denver Police for car theft and other charges.

After the arrest, federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials asked the Denver Police Department to notify them when Valles was going to be released because he was wanted for possible deportation.

After he posted bond, Denver Police proceeded to release the illegal alien suspect without notifying the ICE officials in time.

NBC 9News reports:

A statement from ICE sent to 9Wants to Know says ICE believes Denver failed to honor a detainer it placed on Valles upon his initial arrest in October on the car theft case…

Milo Resigns From Breitbart – Mediaite

After days of speculation, it is official: Milo Yiannopoulos is out at Breitbart, with news of his resignation reaching social media just minutes ago via Michael Grynbaum of The New York Times.

In a statement published minutes ago, Yiannopoulos said, “Breitbart News has stood by me when others caved,” continuing, “I would be wrong to allow my poor choice of words to detract from my colleagues’ important reporting, so today I am resigning from Breitbart, effective immediately.” After Yiannopoulos was slated to speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), a video of him discussing pedophilia made the rounds on Twitter and earned pretty widespread condemnation.

Yiannopoulos responded to the outcry insisting that he has an “utter disgust [for] adults who sexually abuse minors” while acknowledging that “these videos, even though some of them are edited deceptively, paint a different picture.”

Hours after CPAC uninvited him on Monday, Simon & Schuster cancelled the publication of Yiannopoulos’s highly-anticipated book Dangerous; Matt Schlapp, the chair of the American Conservative Union, said Tuesday morning, “Over the weekend I was made aware of these comments and it just broke through very important boundaries and we felt like the CPAC stage was not an appropriate place for this any longer.”…

Clinton Donor Quits CIA Because Of Trump: Says Decision Not About Politics – Washington Free Beacon

A CIA employee who contributed thousands of dollars to Hillary Clinton in 2016 and who is a registered Democrat announced his decision to leave the agency in a Washington Post column published Sunday, writing that his departure “had nothing to do with politics.”

Edward Price resigned from the CIA last week and used the Washington Post to explain his decision that he could not “in good faith serve this administration as an intelligence professional.” Price wrote that his “decision had nothing to do with politics,” and that he “would have been proud to again work under a Republican administration.”

“As intelligence professionals, we’re taught to tune out politics,” Price wrote.

Unmentioned by Price or the Washington Post is the fact that Price gave $5,000 to the Hillary Victory Fund, a joint fundraising committee that splits contributions between the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee. Public records indicate that Price is registered to vote as a Democrat in the District of Columbia.

Obama’s “Refugees” To Cost American Taxpayers Over $4 Billion In 2017 – Arutz Sheva

While much of the controversy surrounding America’s refugee resettlement program has focused on the security threat some refugees from terror hotspots may pose, little attention has been paid to the financial burden, borne by the taxpayer, of allowing in hundreds of thousands of migrants who are supported for years by the federal government.

According to data from a September, 2016 study by the National Academy of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, and a November, 2015 study by the Center for Immigration Studies, the roughly 519,000 refugees allowed into the United States since October 2009 will cost the federal government some $4.1 billion in 2017 alone, Breitbart News reported.

This figure does not include secondary costs borne by state and local governments, which, according to the National Academy of Sciences study totaled some $57.4 billion annually from 2011 to 2013.

The direct costs of resettlement will remain between $2-4 billion per year through at least 2022.

The above-listed costs do not include the expenses projected to be incurred by future refugees not yet in the country…

Trump’s DHS Establishes Support Program For Victims Of Criminal Aliens – Breitbart

Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary John F. Kelly ordered the director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to create a program to assist the victims of crimes committed by illegal aliens. The program creates a liaison and authorizes the disclosure of suspect immigration statuses and other pertinent data.

Secretary Kelly ordered the creation of the Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement (VOICE) Office to help reverse policies of the previous administration that kept certain information about criminal aliens the victims of their crimes.

“Criminal aliens routinely victimize Americans and other legal residents,” Kelly wrote in a six-page memo obtained by Breitbart Texas. “Often, these victims are not provided adequate information about the offender, the offender’s immigration status, or any enforcement action taken by ICE against the offender.”

I am establishing the [VOICE] Office within the Office of the Director of ICE, which will create a programmatic liaison between ICE and the known victims of crimes committed by removable aliens,” the secretary explained. “The liaison will facilitate engagement with the victims and their families to ensure, to the extent permitted by law, that they are provided information about the offender, including the offender’s immigration status and custody status, and that their questions and concerns regarding immigration enforcement efforts are addressed.”…

Riots Spread From Paris To Rest Of France – Truth And Action

After two weeks of general unrest across the European country, protests have given way to outright riots and street fights in some 20 districts. The trouble initially started when a black man alleged that police anally raped him with a baton, sparking outrage. However, after the authorities filed charges against the officers involved, agitators exploited the news to instigate violence in Paris and beyond:

Police in Paris are struggling to cope with the fall out from a plague of riots which have kicked off in the city’s northern suburbs.

The scandal, which has seen four police officers charged, sparked a series of legal protests. But a number a violent, illegal protests have also taken place, with trouble now nearing its third week.

Hundreds of cars have been torched, shops and banks smashed up, and even a disability vehicle was destroyed. A coach full of tourists from South Korea was targeted in northern Paris on Tuesday while a neighbourhood close to one of the busiest train stations in the city Gare Du Nord which houses the Eurostar train network was also hit.

DHS Authorizes Hiring 10,000 Immigration Officers – Breitbart

Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary John F. Kelly authorized the hiring of an additional 10,000 Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents and enforcement officers. The move by DHS delivers on a promise made by President Donald Trump to increase enforcement – particularly in removing criminal aliens inside the borders of the U.S.

Secretary Kelly ordered the director of ICE to immediately begin the process of hiring 10,000 to effectively enforce the immigration laws in the interior regions of the U.S., according to a DHS memo obtained by Breitbart Texas. In addition, Kelly authorized the agency to hire additional operational and mission support staff, along with legal staff.

Kelly said the memo implements the Executive Order, “Enhancing Public Safety in the Interior of the United States,” issued by President Trump on January 25.

ICE agents and enforcement officers were used earlier this month to conduct a targeted roundup of criminal aliens in metropolitan areas across the country. Agents and officers arrested more than 600 criminal aliens in 11 states, Breitbart Texas reported. The operation spawned a rash of “fake news” reports, tweets, and other social media comments that sparked unnecessary fear among immigrants not in the sights of the targeted operation…

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

A group of nearly 100 prominent Iranian dissidents is demanding that Congress launch investigations into clandestine efforts by the Islamic Republic to influence U.S. policy using a network of lobbyists and propaganda pieces placed in Voice of America’s Persian service, according to a letter sent to leading lawmakers and obtained by the 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 letter comes at a time when the Trump administration is seeking a tougher approach on Iran for its repeated violations of international accords governing the nuclear deal…

Two Dozen Companies Leaving California Over Leftist Economic Policies – KCRA

Two dozen California companies have said they are tired of the business-bashing in Sacramento, along with the high taxes – and they are now threatening to leave the state.

The day after Proposition 30 passed, triggering $6 billion in new annual taxes, Arizona launched a campaign to lure some of California’s top companies.

KCRA 3 has learned that 24 chief executives are flying to Phoenix, Ariz., to explore the land of lower taxes and a much friendlier business environment.

“We can deliver the mayors, we can deliver the CEOs, we can deliver the legislative support,” said Barry Broome, president of the Greater Phoenix Economic Council.

Broome launched his campaign to recruit California CEOs one day after voters in the Golden State approved Prop 30 last November, and the campaign is working.

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 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.

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.

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.

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?

Hungary’s populist prime minister on Friday lashed out against billionaire financier George Soros, claiming he and groups backed by him want to secretly influence the country’s politics.

In his annual state of the nation speech, Viktor Orban said groups partly funded by Soros, who was born in Hungary, needed to be made transparent and identifiable.

“Large-bodied predators are swimming here in the waters. This is the trans-border empire of George Soros, with tons of money and international heavy artillery,” said Orban, who received a Soros-funded scholarship as Hungary was transitioning from communism to democracy in the late 1980s…

600 Illegal Aliens Arrested In 11 States Over Past Week – Daily Mail

Hundreds of illegal immigrants across 11 states were arrested last week as part of targeted operations, federal immigration officials revealed on Sunday.

A series of raids by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers saw around 600 people apprehended.

The agency said the operations were ‘routine’.

President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Sunday morning to proclaim his commitment to a crackdown on crime.

He tweeted: ‘The crackdown on illegal criminals is merely the keeping of my campaign promise. Gang members, drug dealers & others are being removed!’

Immigration was a key platform of the billionaire’s presidential campaign before his election in November 2016.

The president plans to build a wall across the Mexican border to prevent to stop what he calls the ‘unprecedented surge’ of illegal migrants from Central America.

The raids are the first coordinated efforts by ICE under the Trump administration to arrest targeted undocumented migrants…

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. He was also convicted of having used his access to her iPhone to defraud her brother out of a R$ 15,000 (US$ 4,500) payment…

Because “there is no such thing as slavery,” professor Jonathan Brown said, the Investigative Project reported.

Brown, a 39-year-old convert to Islam, read from his paper, “Slavery and Islam” about the “Problems of Slavery” during his lecture. Following, he fielded several questions from the audience, offering up such food for thought as his view that slavery cannot be defined as an outright evil because there are so many different kinds – slavery based on religion versus gender, for example…

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.

Hatch said there was a double standard for nominations. For a Republican nominee any charge, no matter how flimsy, was enough for Democrats to oppose a nominee. But, for Democratic nominees, no charge ever seemed enough…

Obama’s Sick New Job With Anti-American Organization To Sabotage Trump – Mad World News

Barack Obama isn’t wasting any time going after President Donald Trump. In fact, he’s starting his new job with a hardcore anti-American, anti-Trump organization. Obama is going back to his roots in community organizing, and he isn’t hiding his agenda. However, what he is hiding will shock you, and we’ve uncovered everything the mainstream media won’t tell you about his new job. This will completely piss you off.

Obama’s been working behind the scenes to set up what will effectively be a shadow government to not only protect his threatened legacy but to sabotage the incoming Trump administration and its popular “America First” agenda.

Using the organization Organizing for Action (OFA), Obama intends to organize anti-Trump agitators like we saw at UC Berkeley, and the end game is to sabotage Trump’s presidency. Far-fetched? Not if you know Obama’s real passion, which is to make America a socialist state with no borders.

The New York Post reports, [Obama is] doing it through a network of leftist nonprofits led by Organizing for Action. Normally you’d expect an organization set up to support a politician and his agenda to close up shop after that candidate leaves office, but not Obama’s OFA. Rather, it’s gearing up for battle, with a growing war chest and more than 250 offices across the country…

Patriots Owner Says Trump Helped Him Through Most Difficult Time Of His Life After Wife’s Death; Called Kraft Once A week For A Year – Daily Mail

Americans who voted for President Donald Trump in the recent election have cited a number of different reasons when it comes to what drew them to the billionaire businessman, and on Monday during Media Day at the Super Bowl New England Patriots owner Bob Kraft listed a new one – he is an incredibly loyal friend.

When asked about his relationship with President Trump, Kraft chose to explain their friendship by describing what his Republican friend and the First Lady did for him after he lost his wife of 48 years Myra to cancer in 2011.

‘When Myra died, Melania and Donald came up to the funeral in our synagogue, then they came for memorial week to visit with me,’ said Kraft in an interview with the New York Daily News.

‘Then he called me once a week for the whole year, the most depressing year of my life when I was down and out. He called me every week to see how I was doing, invited me to things, tried to lift my spirits.’

Mosque Attacked In Quebec Was Founded By Muslim Brotherhood, Funded Terrorist Organizations – Gateway Pundit

In a shocking report released by the TSEC Network, it has has been revealed that the Mosque that was attacked in Quebec, Canada was founded by followers of the Muslim Brotherhood and donated money to front organizations that directly support terrorists groups like HAMAS.

The article says that the Centre culturel islamique de Québec was originally founded by the Muslim Student Association according to it’s own history.

From TSEC Network:

The Muslim Student Association was founded by adherents of the Muslim Brotherhood. The mosque donated money on a yearly basis (2001 to 2010) to the International Relief Fund for the Afflicted and Needy (IRFAN). IRFAN, according to the Canada Revenue Agency, was set up to skirt Canadian law and send millions of dollars to HAMAS. The parent organization of HAMAS is the Muslim Brotherhood according to Article Two of the HAMAS charter. IRFAN is now listed as a terrorism entity.

California Considers Becoming A ‘Sanctuary State’ – KNX

California may prohibit local law enforcement from cooperating with federal immigration authorities, creating a border-to-border sanctuary in the nation’s largest state as legislative Democrats ramp up their efforts to battle President Donald Trump’s migration policies.

The legislation is scheduled for its first public hearing Tuesday as the Senate rushes to enact measures that Democratic lawmakers say would protect immigrants from the crackdown that the Republican president has promised.

The Democratic legislation, written by Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de Leon of Los Angeles, comes up for debate less than a week after Trump signed an order threatening to withdraw some federal grants from jurisdictions that bar officials from communicating with federal authorities about someone’s immigration status.

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…

Iran Violates ‘The Deal’ Again, Conducts Another Ballistic Missile Test In Defiance Of UN Resolution – Liberty News

The rogue nation of Iran has once again violated the U.N. resolution barring the Islamic Republic from conducting ballistic missile testing which followed the Obama’s disastrous ‘Nuclear Deal.’

As clearly stated in U.N. resolution 2231, Iran is explicitly “called upon not to undertake any activity related to ballistic missiles designed to be capable of delivering nuclear weapons, including launches using such ballistic missile technology.”

Despite the unambiguous instruction not to conducted activities related to the development ballistics capable of carrying nuclear weaponry, Iranian defense minister Brigadier Gen. Hossein Dehqan stated in September 2016 that the nation would disregard the resolution and start missile production anyway because he claims the Khorramshahr missile is not designed to carry a nuclear warhead.

Marking at least the second official violation of the resolution since the first ballistics test in July of 2016, Iran launched a Khorramshahr medium-range ballistic missile Sunday roughly 140 east of Tehran.

Spray-Painting ‘Kill All Police’ On A Public Wall Isn’t A Terrorist Threat, Leftist Judge Rules – MLive

Spray-painting ‘Kill all police’ on a public wall doesn’t rise to the level of a terrorist threat, a Detroit judge ruled Tuesday.

Stuart Lewis, 49, of Detroit, faced a series of charges after police pinpointed him as the culprit who painted anti-police graffiti on a wall last October.

After discovery of the graffiti threats, Detroit Police Chief James Craig vowed to find and arrest whoever was responsible.

The department followed through, dispatching its Special Response Team – the equivalent of SWAT – to arrest Lewis at his home.

The man’s dog was killed during the raid.

“I believe that level of force was necessary, given what we knew,” Craig said after the arrest.

Police also found marijuana while making the arrest.

Carnival Forces U.S. Workers To Train Foreign Replacements Right Before Christmas – Breitbart

Americans working at Carnival Corporation say the company’s Christmas gift to hundreds of its college-graduate employees was the news that they are being fired and must train their low-wage foreign replacements.

“I am still processing my emotions and my disbelief,” said Matthew Culver, a senior Miami-based IT worker with Carnival. “After twenty years in the industry, this is one of the hardest things I have had to deal with. I never thought this could happen to me after so many years of experience, education, and hard work,” he told Breitbart News.

“On December 6, 2016, my coworkers and I were asked to attend a town hall meeting,” Culver explained, adding:

We were informed that 200 to 300 of our jobs were being terminated and we were offered jobs with an outsourcing company named Capgemini. Our last day with Carnival would be February 3rd. We are going to be training foreign workers inside and outside the United States to take over our jobs; then we are not guaranteed any future with Capgemini. The workers are in Florida, California and Washington State. We must decide by December 19th if we plan to train our foreign replacements and work with the outsourcing company in their goal of offshoring the jobs.

The jobs are being transferred because Carnival is outsourcing critical tasks to Capgemini, a French outsourcing firm.

Breaking: CIA Confirms Russian Government Killed Harambe The Gorilla – Real Strategy

The CIA has concluded in a secret assessment that Russia intervened in killing Harambe the gorilla, according to officials briefed on the matter.

Intelligence agencies have identified individuals with connections to the Russian government who provided WikiLeaks with thousands of hacked emails from the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden and others, including Harambe’s own caretaker, according to U.S. officials. Those officials described the individuals as actors known to the intelligence community and part of a wider Russian operation to boost the nearby Columbus Zoo and Aquarium’s profits.

“It is the assessment of the intelligence community that Russia’s goal here was to favor one zoo over the other,” said a senior U.S. official briefed on an intelligence presentation made to U.S. senators. “That’s the consensus view.”

The Obama administration has been debating for months how to respond to the alleged Russian intrusions, with White House officials concerned about escalating tensions with Moscow and being accused of trying to boost Columbus Zoo’s revenues.

The Trump transition team dismissed the findings in a short statement issued Friday evening. “These are the same people that said Cecil the Lion had teeth of mass destruction. It’s now time to move on and ‘Make Columbus Zoo Great Again,’ ” the statement read.

Trump has consistently dismissed the intelligence community’s findings about Russia.

“I don’t believe they interfered” in the killing of Harambe, he told Time magazine this week. The killing, he said, “could be Russia. And it could be China. And it could be some guy in his home in New Jersey.”…

IBM Announces It Will Hire Another 25,000 Workers In The U.S. Ahead Of Trump Meeting – Daily Mail

U.S. technology giant IBM has said it will hire 25,000 people in the United States over the next four years, ahead of a meeting between President-elect Donald Trump and tech industry leaders.

About 6,000 of those appointments will be made in 2017, IBM chief executive Ginni Rometty wrote in opinion article published in USA Today.

IBM, which in recent years has restructured its activities, will invest $1billion on employee training and development in the next four years, said the IBM president, chairman and CEO.

‘We are hiring because the nature of work is evolving – and that is also why so many of these jobs remain hard to fill,’ Rometty said, noting that many industries were being reshaped by data science and cloud computing.

‘Jobs are being created that demand new skills – which in turn requires new approaches to education, training and recruiting,’ she said.

‘This is not about white collar vs. blue collar jobs, but about the ‘new collar’ jobs that employers in many industries demand, but which remain largely unfilled.’

Rometty is a member of Trump’s Strategic and Policy Forum, a group of US business leaders focused on boosting economic growth and jobs.

The IBM jobs investment news came before the highly anticipated meeting today of the Republican property tycoon-turned-next U.S. president and the leaders of several major technology companies…

Shocker: Leftist Hollywood’s Big Gun Control Movie Sucks Ass – Washington Free Beacon
.

Miss Sloane, the gun control thriller starring Jessica Chastain, over the weekend posted one of the worst performances of the past 35 years for a movie in wide release.

The movie pulled in $1,167 on average at the 1,648 theaters across the country it was shown in. It made $1,922,300, meaning it was the 11th-highest grossing movie in the country. It is number 79 on Box Office Mojo’s list of Worst Opening Weekend by Per-Theater Average since 1982.

That means Miss Sloane earned less money per theater than Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Shaun the Sheep Movie, Lawnmower Man 2: Beyond Cyberspace, and Gigli.

Industry observers criticized the movie’s performance on Monday. Time said the movie “fizzled in its wide expansion.” Fortune described it as struggling…

Federal Judge Drop Kicks ‘Political Stunt’ By Colorado Electors – Downtrend

A possible Electoral College coup against Donald Trump was dealt a blow when a federal judge smacked down an effort by Colorado electors to shirk their responsibility and open the door for a national elector rebellion against the President-elect.

The lawsuit was filed by members of the so-called Hamilton Electors, a slimy and mysterious front group for anti-Trump interests that was trying to make the case that the Electoral College was intended to be a bulwark against an unacceptable president. Of course it’s a load of crap but in their derangement and fury after Hillary’s loss the liberal moonbats will swallow anything.

The Denver Post reports “Judge rejects injunction request in Colorado elector suit seeking to block Donald Trump”:

A federal judge on Monday rejected an attempt by two Colorado electors to unbind their votes in the Electoral College, saying the effort designed to impede Donald Trump’s path to the White House is “a political stunt.”

U.S. District Judge Wiley Daniel denied a request for a preliminary injunction to nullify a state law that requires presidential electors to vote for the winner of the state’s popular vote. To do otherwise, Daniel said in his ruling from the bench, “would undermine the electoral process.”

The president-elect and the Trump campaign intervened in the lawsuit to “defend the integrity of the electoral process” and applauded the ruling. “Your vote should count when you vote for president,” said Chris Murray, a Denver attorney representing Trump and the campaign…

Texas GOP Elector Risks Criminal Charges To Snub Trump; Law Allows Him To Be Replaced – Law Newz

A Texas elector just publicly stated in The New York Times his intention to vote against the party nominee of the party that elected him to the electoral college. The same Texas elector also appears to be soliciting others to do the same. What he may not know is that he is placing himself at risk of a Texas district attorney thinking his act a crime, should a “faithless elector” follow through with it. And ask Tom Delay if Texas district attorneys have any hindrance using criminal prosecutions of political officials. There is a remedy, though. Texas law allows the electors to declare an intended faithless elector ineligible and replace him at the elector meeting in Texas. This will help the voters and the faithless elector by preventing him from being accused of a crime, like election fraud or perjury.

Now, you might have heard in the media that “faithless” electors are common-place and this was the “intended” act of the founders. Both history and the law prove that media story to be #fakenews. Per electors, that is actually quite rare, despite the media narrative. The reason is two-fold: election law from a 1952 Supreme Court decision (the Ray decision) made clear the state can give state parties control over electors, and many state parties require electors sign affidavits to vote for the nominee, making any other vote an act of potential election fraud and alleged perjury under a state’s criminal laws. That is why the number of actual faithless electors who voted against the election winner since the civil rights era is so low:

2012: 0

2008: 0

2004: 0 (1 accidentally put Edwards name 1st in the ballot)…

State officials had always expected a recount to uphold Trump’s surprise win in the Badger State. Jill Stein, the Green Party presidential nominee, filed a request for a recount over unsupported concerns that hackers meddled with the results.

The final vote total, certified by Mark Thomsen, chair of the Wisconsin Elections Committee, changed by 1,769 votes after approximately 3 million ballots were recounted.

Black Guy Sets Ex-Girlfriend’s Car On Fire, Then Leaves Racist Note Before Faking His Own Kidnapping – Ormond Beach Observer

Vincent Palmer went far out of his way to send his ex-girlfriend, Staci Winn, a message.

Palmer, who has four children with Winn, drove his scooter to Winn’s home in the Forrest Hills subdivision in Ormond Beach Dec. 10 to break into her car, dump a Mountain Dew bottle full of gasoline inside and set it on fire. Before fleeing the scene, he left a note on Winn’s mailbox that led police to believe the crime was motivated by racial hate: “I HAVE WATHED (sic) YOU FOR A LONG TIME YOU AND YOUR NIGGER KIDS DONT Belong.” The letters “KKK” were one on one side of the note, and “TRUMP” was written on the other.

Winn had lived at her home since 1976. While the police were there on Dec. 10, she called Palmer and told him that her vehicle had been set on fire. He then came to the victim’s home and was arrested after officers discovered there was a warrant for his arrest, related to child support. He was transported to Volusia County Branch Jail.

The next day, the Daytona Beach Police Department responded to a call about a possible abduction: A note led family members to believe that Palmer had been kidnapped. One of Palmer’s family members told police they found blood on one of the vehicles in the driveway and a note in one of the vehicles that read: “KKK… I HATE BLACK MEN WHO FUCK WHITE WOMEN… YOU WILL NEVER SEE YOUR GRANDSON AGAIN ALIVE… YOU WILL NEVER FOUND OUT WHO I AM, THIS IS HIS NOTEBOOK…? NICE DOG, YOU SLEEP HARD”

Between the efforts of the DBPD and the Ormond Beach Police Department, Palmer was located at Burger King in Ormond Beach around noon. An officer made contact with a black male in the restaurant…

CIA: Washington Post Report Linking Russian Government To Trump And Election Hacking Is “Outright Lie” – True Pundit

The Central Intelligence Agency is declaring the Washington Post’s much-hyped story linking the Russian government to hacking the presidential election to help Donald Trump an “outright lie,” according to CIA personnel with direct knowledge of the case.

The Washington Post, in a front-page splash on Friday, fingered the CIA for allegedly confirming the wild rumors of Russian hacking that were concocted and spread by Democratic lawmakers for months preceding the election and the weeks since the GOP win. The Washington Post’s story, however, contained no CIA sources and in fact, no credible U.S. intelligence agency sources whatsoever. Instead, it hinged on what unnamed lawmakers had supposedly been told by unidentified, supposed CIA-linked sources in “secret” briefings: That the CIA had developed proof the Russian state waged an orchestrated campaign to destabilize the U.S. election to benefit GOP-candidate Trump.

“It’s an outright lie,” a CIA analyst divulged to True Pundit. “There’s nothing definitive like that. There are leads from activity originating in Finland, Italy, Norway, Sweden, Britain, France, China and Russia.”

Multiple CIA sources are now denouncing the Washington Post for knowingly reporting misleading national security intelligence. Intelligence insiders said no one in the Agency or in the FBI, who is running at least one parallel inquiry, has ruled out a possible internal leak within the Democratic National Committee from actor(s) inside the United States who funneled private DNC emails to Wikileaks…

Former Rep. Chaka Fattah (D-Pa.) was sentenced to 10 years in prison on Monday on charges of money laundering, bribery and fraud.

ICE Spends $100 Million Ferrying Illegal Alien Children Around U.S. – Washington Times

The federal agency that handles deportations spent more than $100 million of its money over the last few years to ferry illegal immigrant children around the U.S., according to calculations by a watchdog group that says the cash could have been better spent on enforcement.

Government figures obtained by the Immigration Reform Law Institute through an open records request show Immigration and Customs Enforcement spent an average of $665 per juvenile in 2014, with most of that going to the cost of airplane flights to shuttle the children among government agencies, to relatives here in the U.S. or back to their home countries – if they’re deported.

At that rate, ICE will spend about $4.5 million flying just the children nabbed at the border in October, and somewhere north of $100 million since the surge began in earnest in 2014.

“It’s insult to injury on a massive scale,” said Dale Wilcox, executive director of IRLI.

He blamed President Obama’s 2012 deportation amnesty for young adult illegal immigrants, the so-called Dreamers, for the surge, saying it enticed tens of thousands of new migrants, particularly juveniles, to take a risk on making the trip.

Instead of being sent back, they are shuttled among various federal agencies until they are eventually delivered to their parents, other relatives or sponsor families – where they often disappear into the shadows.

According to statistics from the Senate Homeland Security Committee, only 3 percent of the more than 120,000 caught over the last few years have been sent home as of June.

That, according to the new Border Patrol chief, serves as an incentive for more to make the journey…

Egypt Uncovers International Satanic Organ And Child Trafficking Ring – Your News Wire

An international Satanic organ harvesting ring has been uncovered in Egypt. Authorities have arrested doctors, nurses, professors and members of the elite allegedly involved in Satanic rituals involving human organs and dead children.

The arrests of at least 45 people on Tuesday also included international organ buyers and middlemen who profit off the Satanic organization’s thirst for human body parts, the country’s Administrative Control Authority said.

Authorities said the discovery of “millions of dollars and gold bullion” prompted them to investigate further and led to the unravelling of the “largest international network for trading human organs” in the world.

It is illegal to purchase organs in Egypt, but poverty drives some to sell their body parts. Other organs are believed to have been harvested against their owners will and in some cases people were killed for the trade.

The Administrative Control Authority, a powerful anti-corruption body, claimed the network targeted on Tuesday was “made up of Egyptians and Arabs taking advantage of some of the citizens’ difficult economic conditions so that they buy their human organs and sell [them] for large sums of money”. The organs are then used in Satanic rituals around the world.

The statement on the government website added that the group was “the largest international network for trading human organs”…

Ohio Lawmakers Pass ‘Heartbeat’ Abortion Bill – Columbus Dispatch

The election of Donald Trump emboldened majority Republicans in the Ohio General Assembly to pass the strictest abortion law in the nation Tuesday.

In a surprise move in the final days of the lame-duck session, the Senate and House adopted the Heartbeat Bill – long sought by some abortion opponents – to outlaw abortions once a fetal heartbeat can be detected, generally about six weeks into pregnancy.

Previous attempts to pass the bill failed over concerns that it would be ruled unconstitutional in the federal courts, as have similar laws in two other states.

“A new president, new Supreme Court appointees change the dynamic, and there was consensus in our caucus to move forward,” said Senate President Keith Faber, R-Celina, when asked why the measure suddenly surfaced to the shock of objecting Democrats.

“I think it has a better chance than it did before,” Faber said of the bill’s chances of surviving a constitutional review by the courts.

Ohio Democratic Women’s Caucus Chair Kathy DiCristofaro said “this bill – which was tacked on as a last-minute amendment to a child abuse prevention bill – makes no exceptions for rape or incest victims. It is cruel and plainly unconstitutional – but it seems like Ohio Republicans don’t care about the Constitution. Trump’s vision for America is already alive and well in the Buckeye State.”

Because Leftists Are Insane… – Washington Free Beacon

Several media outlets are praising recent changes that a couple made to the classic song “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” after some accused it of being an anthem for date rape.

The Daily Caller on Monday night highlighted some of the compliments coming from various media outlets, such as CNN, People, and the Huffington Post. Much of the praise comes from a newer version of the song stressing consent in its lyrics.

The original song was written in 1944 by Frank Loesser to sing at parties with his wife Lynn. The song became a hit after it appeared in movies and has become mainstream ever since, remaining a popular duet. It describes a man trying to romantically woo a woman who he likes to stay at a party longer because the weather is cold after she says she needs to go home.

Critics of the original version argue that the lyrics allude to unwanted sexual advances and even rape, noting that the man in the song pleads with the woman to stay and gives her another drink.

One couple from Minnesota thought the 1944 song was “so aggressive and inappropriate” and wrote a new version that they say emphasizes consent in sexual relations.

The Daily Caller rebuts the critics of the song in its article and asserts that “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” is simply a romantic song of which the detractors do not understand the historical context or listen to all of the lyrics.

The newer, redone version is advertised as “less sexually aggressive” than the original, which is generally recognized as a a romantic Christmas song…

Obama Clan Has Spent $85 Million In Taxpayer Money On Travel, Vacations – Washington Examiner

The first family has spent over $10 million a year on travel and vacations, and the still growing bill has crossed over $85 million in eight years, according to a watchdog group.

Judicial Watch, which has charted the travel of presidents for years, on Monday said that it has received a new batch of bills for the first family’s Christmas break in Hawaii, bringing that trip to nearly $5 million. The Obama’s are expected to return to Hawaii this Christmas.

The expenses cover items such as security, flights and hotel rooms for staff and U.S. Secret Service. They do not include the price of prepositioning ships and aircraft in the area or much of the communications costs.

From Judicial Watch:

Judicial Watch announced today that it obtained records from the U.S. Secret Service revealing that its travel expenses for the First Family’s 2015 Hawaiian vacation cost taxpayers $1.2 million, which bring the total cost of the vacation trip to at least $4.8 million. This was the Obamas’ eighth Hawaiian family vacation. The trip has become an annual event for the Obamas. To date, Obama’s and his family’s travel expenses total at least $85,029,819.

Socialist France Passes Crackdown On Pro-Life Websites – Washington Free Beacon

France’s socialist government is attempting to crack down on pro-life activists by criminalizing online advocacy at odds with the nation’s abortion regime.

On Thursday, the French National Assembly passed a bill that makes it a crime to post information online that challenges abortion. Pro-life activists who continue to operate online face up to two years in prison and a fine of more than $30,000. The bill is an expansion of a 1993 law that penalized giving out “false information” or physically blocking those seeking abortion from entering clinics. The bill passed by French lawmakers will punish web operators who post material considered “deliberately misleading, intimidating and/or exerting psychological or moral pressure.”

The French legislation follows a controversy that erupted after the French government blocked an advertisement featuring smiling children with Down syndrome because it could dredge up feelings of guilt from woman who decided to abort babies diagnosed with the genetic condition in-utero. About 96 percent of all babies diagnosed with the condition are aborted in France. The two-minute ad featured testimony from Down syndrome children and adults, as well as their parents explaining that they were capable of living full and happy lives. In November a French court upheld the ban, saying the video would “‘disturb the conscience of women who, in accordance with the law, have made personal life choices.’”

Leftist Social Media Giants To Set Up Extremist (aka Non-Leftist) Database – Yahoo News

Web giants YouTube , Facebook, Twitter and Microsoft will step up efforts to remove extremist content from their websites by creating a common database.

The companies will share ‘hashes’ – unique digital fingerprints they automatically assign to videos or photos – of extremist content they have removed from their websites to enable their peers to identify the same content on their platforms.

“We hope this collaboration will lead to greater efficiency as we continue to enforce our policies to help curb the pressing global issue of terrorist content online,” the companies said in a statement on Tuesday.

Tech companies have long resisted outside intervention in how their sites should be policed, but have come under increasing pressure from Western governments to do more to remove extremist content following a wave of militant attacks.

YouTube and Facebook have begun to use hashes to automatically remove extremist content.

But many providers have relied until now mainly on users to flag content that violates terms of service. Flagged material is then individually reviewed by human editors who delete postings found to be in violation.

Twitter suspended 235,000 accounts between February and August this year and has expanded the teams reviewing reports of extremist content.

Each company will decide what image and video hashes to add to the database and matching content will not be automatically removed, they said.

The database will be up and running in early 2017 and more companies could be brought into the partnership…

Trump Reaches Deal With Carrier To Keep 1,000 Jobs In U.S. – Daily Caller

The incoming Trump administration has reached a deal with Carrier to keep about 1,000 jobs in the U.S. rather than outsourcing them to Mexico.

Carrier, which manufactures air conditioners, attracted national attention in early 2016 due a viral video of the company’s employees reacting to the news they were getting laid off, with their jobs being sent to new production facilities in Mexico. The move was intended to save Carrier’s parent company, United Technologies, tens of millions of dollars in labor costs.

President-elect Donald Trump specifically pledged to reverse Carrier’s outsourcing plan if he were elected.

“It’s not like we have an 80 percent chance of keeping them or a 95 percent. One-hundred percent,” Trump told an Indianapolis rally last April.

On Thanksgiving, Trump announced he was negotiating with Carrier to keep at least some of its jobs in the United States. Now, those negotiations have borne fruit.

CNBC reported Tuesday night that a deal has been struck to keep about 1,000 jobs in the U.S., representing about half of the 2000 Carrier jobs that were to be outsourced from two different facilities. The deal, CNBC said, was spearheaded by vice president-elect and outgoing Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, and will be officially announced Thursday during a visit by Trump to the state.

Carrier itself later confirmed the deal.

It’s not clear how extensive the public inducements will be, but United Technologies has ample reason to please Trump…

On Monday, mere hours before the Ohio State University radical Islamic terrorist attack, whose responsibility was claimed by ISIS and perpetrated by a Somali refugee, CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota suggested that Americans wear hijabs, or religious head scarfs, in solidarity with Muslim women who claim to be too frightened to wear one since the election of Republican Donald Trump.

“Maybe there will be a movement where people wear the head scarf in solidarity. You know, even if you’re not Muslim,” stated Camerota, during a “New Day” segment called “The Trump Transition: Fearful Muslim women take steps to be safe.”

“Maybe it’s the way people shave their heads, you know, sometimes in solidarity with somebody who is going through something,” added the anchor…

Oil Prices Surge On Reports Of A Big Output Cut By OPEC – Fortune

Oil prices jumped more than 8% on Wednesday to a five-week high as newswires reported that the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries had agreed its first oil output cuts since 2008.

An OPEC source told Reuters on Wednesday that the cartel, which produces one-third of the world’s oil, had firmed up an agreement in line with a tentative deal reached in Algiers in September. That would involve cutting output from a current level of around 33.6 million barrels a day to somewhere between 32.5 million and 33 million.

Bloomberg said the new ceiling would be at the lower end of that range, an effective cut of between 1.1 million and 1.2 million barrels a day from current levels.

Brent crude futures for delivery in January were up $4 a barrel, or 8.5%, at $51.32 a barrel by 0915 ET, recovering from a drop of nearly 4% on Tuesday and on course for their biggest one-day move in nine months. U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures were $3.63 higher at $48.86 a barrel, a one-week high.

The volatility is acute because world markets are still badly oversupplied, and prices have edged up since September almost exclusively on the hope that OPEC would rein in output and end the price war that began in late 2014. Analysts at Goldman Sachs, Barclays, and ANZ had said oil prices would quickly fall to the low $40s a barrel if OPEC failed to cut output.

However, if the cut sticks, then the International Energy Agency reckons that the world market could “move from surplus to deficit very quickly in 2017”, leading prices to rise sharply once the existing stock overhang is depleted…

California Bans Cow Farts To Combat Fake Global Warming – Your News Wire
.

.
In an attempt to reduce methane emissions by 40 per cent in order to tackle global warming, California Governor Jerry Brown signed a new law regulating the amount of methane ‘allowed’ to be released from cows.

According to scientists, gasses produced by cow farts are a major source of methane, a greenhouse gas that contributes to global warming.

“If we can reduce emissions of methane, we can really help to slow global warming,” said Ryan McCarthy, a science adviser for the California Air Resources Board, which is drawing up rules to implement the new law.

Livestock are responsible for 14.5 percent of human-induced greenhouse gas emissions, with beef and dairy production accounting for the bulk of it, according to a 2013 United Nations report…

Trump Says He’ll Leave Business ‘In Total’ To Focus On Presidency – Marketwatch

President-elect Donald Trump said Wednesday morning he will leave his business “in total” to focus on running the country while in the White House.

In an early-morning series of tweets, Trump said he would hold a news conference with his children on Dec. 15.

During the presidential campaign, Trump said he would hand over his companies to his children to run.

Trump, a real-estate mogul, isn’t legally required to give up control of his business interests, as he noted in his tweets. But he said: “The presidency is a far more important task!”

Trump offered few details in his four tweets, so it’s not clear how he will do this. One area Trump will almost certainly have to address is the Constitution’s clause on “emoluments,” which bans federal officeholders from accepting gifts from foreign states.

Here are Trump’s tweets:

DHS Overwhelmed By Green Card Catastrophe – Washington Free Beacon

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has issued thousands of duplicate green cards to immigrants, including many that include incorrect information and allow these individuals to stay longer than permitted in the United States, according to a new government oversight report that warns the Department of Homeland Security is incapable of tracking immigrants who may pose a security risk to the United States.

USCIS, which handles immigration cases and the distribution of green cards, was found to have produced at least 19,000 green cards during the past three years that were duplicates or contained incorrect information, according to a new report by the Department of Homeland Security’s inspector general.

During the same period, more than 200,000 green card holders reported their cards missing and an increasing number of cards were sent to incorrect addresses, posing a risk to national security.

Problems at USCIS have been increasing over the past three years. The bureau has been deemed incapable of keeping track of green cards and immigrants who have overstayed their legal time in the United States.

“In the wrong hands, Green Cards may enable terrorists, criminals, and illegal aliens to remain in the United States and access immigrant benefits,” according to the oversight report, which disclosed that green card errors cost taxpayers $1.5 million in 2015…

Report Exposes $250 Billion In Wasteful Government Spending – Daily Signal

The national debt is expected to hit $20 trillion early next year. Sen. James Lankford has a few ideas to start chipping away at it.

The Oklahoma Republican unveiled his second government waste and solutions report during a press conference Monday on Capitol Hill and Heritage Foundation event Tuesday.

Lankford’s new report, “Federal Fumbles: 100 Ways the Federal Government Dropped the Ball,” identifies $250 billion in wasteful spending. His goal is to help Congress determine funding and programs that can be streamlined.

Lankford acknowledged that his report is not comprehensive, but is meant to offer common ground solutions to wasteful government spending that would appeal to lawmakers of all partisan stripes.

“This is not about targeting Republicans, Democrats, any administration,” Lankford said. “Bureaucracy is bureaucracy, and inefficiency is present in every government. This is an issue of oversight.”

In order to significantly decrease the national debt and cut government spending, Lankford said both Congress and the Trump administration must be more engaged in oversight.

“With $19.5 trillion in debt, this is something that cannot be ignored,” Lankford said. “If we don’t get economic activity and we do not control our spending, this does not get better in the days ahead. It gets worse.”…

Leftists Attack Trump For Suggesting That U.S. Flag-Burning Be Banned, Yet Hillary Proposed Same Thing – Washington Examiner

Critics on Tuesday morning were quick to pan President-elect Trump’s proposal to make burning the American flag illegal, but soon after a bill began circulating on social media that Hillary Clinton introduced in 2006 to do exactly the same thing.

Clinton, then a senator from New York, reportedly opposed a constitutional amendment that would criminalize the desecration of the flag, but introduced legislation in 2005 and backed a second bill in 2006 that would criminalize flag burning.

More than half of Democrats in the Senate backed her effort, the New York Times reported at the time.

On Tuesday, Clinton supporters and members of the media argued Trump was flouting First Amendment protections of free speech by tweeting that flag-burners should face a year in jail or the loss of their citizenship.

Although one of the flag-burning measures Clinton supported failed in the Senate in June 2006, the bill earned 36 votes, mostly from Democrats in the minority…

Boom: Michigan Just Crashed Hillary’s Pity Party – Allen West

As liberals continue to whine, cry, and challenge the election results that happened several weeks ago, the state of Michigan just gave these delicate snowflakes some rather bad news.

It seems the Michigan Board of Canvassers have certified Donald Trump’s victory in the state, meaning he really, truly, irrefutably turned a blue state red.

It’s too bad folks on the left won’t suck it up and just accept their loss. That would be expecting them to act like adults, which is pretty ridiculous when you think about the fact these are the same people who color and watch puppy videos when they’re “triggered.”

According to the Washington Examiner, The board voted 4-0 to certify the state’s election results Monday afternoon, and the final tally showed Trump with a total of 2,279,543 votes, while Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton got 2,268,839, a difference of just 10,704 votes. Behind the two front-runners were Libertarian Gary Johnson at 172,136 votes and the Green Party’s Jill Stein at 51,463 votes.

Last week, the Michigan secretary of state posted vote counts certified at the county level from the contest that showed Trump with a 10,704 vote lead, but the count wasn’t official until Monday.

President Asshat Tries To Push Through 98 ‘Midnight Regulations’ – Law Newz

Needless to say, the Republican-led Congress and Donald Trump are a bit miffed that their imagined lame-duck isn’t nearly as lame as they’d hoped.

Before we get into the usual story about how Congress plans to block everything President Obama does, just because he’s President Obama, let’s discuss how these “midnight regulations” even work.

Wisconsin Denies Request For Recount By Hand As Stein Threatens To Sue – Zero Hedge

Finally, a voice of reason emerges in Wisconsin to combat Jill Stein’s useless recount crusade. According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Wisconsin Elections Commission Chairman, Mark Thomsen, who happens to be Democrat, announced earlier that the committee would follow through with Stein’s recount request but denied a request that the recount be conducted by hand. Thomsen cited a 2011 recount that changed the overall vote margin by 300 votes as evidence that the current recount would overturn Trump’s 22,177 vote lead in the state.

Citing the results of a 2011 statewide recount that changed only 300 votes, Elections Commission chairman Mark Thomsen, a Democrat, said this presidential recount is very unlikely to change Republican Donald Trump’s win in the state.

“It may not be 22,177,” said Thomsen, referring to Trump’s win over Democrat Hillary Clinton in the vote count. “But I don’t doubt that the president-elect is going to win that.”

Thomsen dismissed Stein’s claims of problems with the vote as unfounded and misleading. But he directed his toughest criticism to Trump’s unsupported allegations that millions of people voted illegally nationwide, calling them “an insult to the people that run our elections.”

Under the plan adopted Monday, the recount would begin Thursday and could cost $1 million. Of course, we assume that Stein didn’t factor in the incremental costs associated with suing states that call her out for her ridiculous recount efforts…

Florida Man Hiding In Pond Tells Deputies Their Suspect ‘Went That Way’ – UPI

Authorities in Florida said a robbery suspect found hiding in a pond told deputies he was “just fishing” and the real robber “went that way.”

The Volusia County Sheriff’s Office said deputies responded Saturday to a Family Dollar store in Deltona, where a clerk told them a man with “Loyalty” tattooed across his abdomen claimed to have a gun and demanded money.

The clerk refused the request, leading the man to flea, the sheriff’s office said.

Deputies in a sheriff’s office helicopter spotted a man walking near a pond and wading waste-deep into the water.

A group of deputies accompanied by a K9 unit located the man in the water and ordered him to raise his hands and surrender.

Sean Torres, 29, allegedly told deputies he was “just fishing” and had dropped his pole in the water.

Deputies said they questioned Torres about the robbery and he responded: “The guy who did it went that way.”

Torres was arrested, however, when deputies determined his tattoos matched those described by the store clerk. He was charged with robbery and criminal mischief.

“While in the back of a VCSO patrol car, he repeatedly shouted and threw himself against the interior, kicking the doors, damaging the vehicle and causing it to rock,” the sheriff’s office said.

Torres was jailed in lieu of $30,500 bail…

Hate Hoax: Another Student Fakes Mugging Claim By Trump Fans – Breitbart

Another student at Bowling Green State University (BGSU) has hoaxed a racist hate crime attack, local police have confirmed.

More than a week after the 2016 Election, a man on the BGSU campus claimed he had been pushed to the ground and robbed, all while the two perpetrators allegedly called him a racial slur.

The university’s vice president for student affairs, Thomas Gibson, put out a statement based off a local police investigation where he confirms that the alleged attack did not actually happen, The Blade reported.

It is still unclear whether or not the student will be charged for falsifying a police report.

The hate crime hoax is the second incident on the BGSU campus alone.

Breitbart Texas reported on an alleged incident where a black, female student claimed three white male President-Elect Donald Trump supporters had thrown rocks at her.

After a week-long police investigation, the student’s allegations turned out to be a hoax, as cell tower records indicated she was not in the location claimed at the time of the imagined attack.

Further, the student who hoaxed the attack, Eleesha Long, was involved with sending discriminatory text messages about Trump supporters, police said. In one text message, Long said about Trump supporters “should take an IQ test to vote,” while other messages said “I hope they all get AIDS” and “I haven’t met a decent Trump supporter yet.”…

German Man Cheats Recycling Machine Out Of Over $47,000 Using A Single Bottle – Oddity Central

A drinks vendor in Cologne, Germany was recently tried and convicted to ten months in prison for modifying a bottle recycling machine and cheating the swindling several tens of thousands of euros from the national recycling system.

Bottle-recycling machines in Germany are fairly straightforward – a person inserts one or more bottles into the machine and they receive a receipt for a few euro-cents, or euros, depending on the number of bottles recycled. But in a case presented in front of a Cologne court last week, one recycling machine ended up paying a whopping €44,362.75 ($47,000) without recycling a single bottle. It turns out that an unnamed local drinks vendor managed to modify one such recycling machine located in the basement of his shop so that he could earn a lot more than the usual spare change.

Evidence presented during the trial showed that the 37-year-old defendant had installed a magnet sensor and a kind of wooden tunnel into the machine, which allowed him to insert the bottle into the mechanism, receive his receipt and then retrieve the bottle without it actually getting shredded inside.

If you’re wondering how many times the man had to insert and retrieve that one bottle to earn a total of $47,000, the exact number is 177,451 times. The judge presiding over this case called the scam a “logistical master stroke”, adding that must have “done nothing else every day other than attend to the machine.” And while it is unknown exactly how long it took the drinks vendor to repeat the process 177,451, he did have this to say on the matter: “I had a radio next to it because otherwise it was really boring.”…

12 Fake News Stories From The Mainstream Media – Breitbart

With all of the politically-charged talk about banning “fake news” sites, it seems appropriate to review some of the worst fake news stories pushed by mainstream media outlets. No matter how large your family gathering is this Thanksgiving, you won’t be chowing down on a turkey as big as these phony stories from A-list television shows and publications.

Walter Duranty and the Holodomor: The mother of all fake news stories must be New York Times reporter Walter Duranty helping Stalin’s Russia conceal the Holodomor from the world. Duranty helped the communists cover up one of the worst crimes against humanity ever perpetrated, the forced starvation of over 1.5 million people in Ukraine between 1932 and 1933.

This was the worst of many lies Duranty told in the service of Soviet communism. His fake news helped sell communism to impressionable people around the world and changed the course of history. It’s one of two fake news items on this list sanctified with a Pulitzer Prize, which has not been revoked despite strong calls to do so. (In essence, the Pulitzer committee insists Duranty deserves his prize for everything he wrote that wasn’t an outrageous lie.)

The New York Times institutionally refuses to condemn Duranty or acknowledge the depths of his deception, portraying him as the victim of Stalin’s “powerful and omnipresent” propaganda machine – an excuse heard again from the mainstream media in other settings over the years, when they explain how they had to play ball with horrible dictatorships in order to gain access…

Obama Regime Fines Police Department For Not Hiring Non-Citizens – Daily Caller

Denver County’s sheriff office has been slapped with a fine by the Department of Justice (DOJ) because it refused to hire non-citizens as deputies.

From the beginning of 2015 through last March, the Denver Sheriff Department went on a major hiring binge, adding more than 200 new deputies. But those jobs ended up only going to citizens, because the department made citizenship a stated requirement on the job application. The department admitted as much in a new settlement with the U.S. government, which requires it to pay a $10,000 fine.

The department will also have to comb through all of its job applications from the past two years, identifying immigrants who were excluded from the hiring process and giving them due consideration.

“Eliminating this unlawful citizenship requirement will help ensure that the Denver Sheriff Department hires the best and most qualified individuals to protect and serve,” DOJ Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Vanita Gupta said in a statement. “The entire community will benefit from these reforms.”

Under the Immigration and Nationality Act, employers are required to give equal treatment to non-citizens with valid work permits, unless state, local, or federal law explicitly requires certain jobs be open only to citizens. More than 40 U.S. states currently have laws that in some capacity restrict non-citizens from being police, but Colorado is not one of them. The department says it was simply unaware that limiting employment to citizens was a violation of federal law…

Muslims Slaughter 20 After Man’s Pet Monkey Commits ‘Islamophobic’ Offense – Mad World News

A Muslim girl was walking down the street when a local shop owner’s exotic pet monkey approached her. However, when her Muslim relatives saw the little creature commit an Islamophobic offense, they immediately went on a bloody rampage that’s left at least 20 dead and dozens of others wounded.

It’s no surprise when barbaric butchery breaks out in Sharia countries, especially after a Muslim community becomes offended by something wholly un-Islamic. While their outrage is sometimes triggered by their own inane superstitions, there are other times that the world is left scratching their heads in utter bewilderment at the level of lunacy from the “religion of peace.”

It doesn’t take much to set off the Muslim community. At least, that’s what one man found out after his pet primate did something incredibly taboo to a Muslim child. In fact, the story is so outlandish that if major international news outlets weren’t confirming its authenticity, we’d think it’s a well thought out satire for Muslim hostility.

The BBC reports that at least 20 are dead and over 50 are wounded after a shopkeeper’s pet monkey allegedly pulled off a Muslim girl’s hijab. The animal reportedly bit and scratched the child, although the major offense appears to be the attack on the girl’s modesty. In a ridiculous response to the animal’s “Islamophobic” behavior, the girl’s relatives and community launched rockets, fired mortars, and even brought out tanks and other heavy weapons against the store owner and his people in a clash between the Awlad Suleiman and Guedadfa tribes – both Muslim clans…

Thousands Of Immigration Green Cards Have Disappeared – Daily Caller

Brace Yourself For Four Years Of Nonstop Freakoutrage – Kurt Schlichter

The left is trying to come to grips with its utter rejection, and its response to Donald Trump will be to fall back on an endless series of freakoutrages – hyperbolic, unhinged, hack media-fueled spasms of faux moral panic every time he dares do anything.

The Japan Meteorological Agency said the quake was an aftershock to the devastating 2011 earthquake, the largest since that quake’s immediate aftershocks.

They warned another quake could strike in the next few days and warned residents in the area to “remain cautious”.

Small tsunami waves measuring betwen 30cm and 90cm have been recovered hitting the shore, smaller than the 3m waves predicted to hit.

The tsunami warnings have since been downgraded and now cancelled.

Live news footage from Iwaki City showed what appeared to be water rushing away from land, a phenomenon which often occurs before a tsunami.

Water is now beginning to return to land, according to the footage, increasing the likelihood of a tsunami.

Authorities said: “We have already observed a tsunami and expect the tsunami to come to the sea side.”

The Japanese Meterological Agency has ordered several locations to “evacuate immediately” and get to higher ground.

SpaceX Founder Elon Musk To Launch 4,425 Satellites Into Space – Your News Wire

SpaceX Founder Elon Musk has requested permission from the U.S. government to launch thousands of satellites into space in order to beam high-speed Internet down to earth.

The tech billionaire is competing against the likes of Facebook, Google, and Microsoft to become the first person to bring cheap Internet connectivity to unconnected parts of the world via wireless devices, drones, high-altitude beams, and laser beams.

Private rocket launch service SpaceX has asked the U.S. government for permission to launch 4,425 satellites in orbit to beam high-speed Internet down to the world, according to a newly filed application with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

That’s a hell of a lot of satellites; in fact, the figure surpasses the total number of satellites in the Earth’s orbit.

Here’s what the company’s 102-page technical document reads:

“The system is designed to provide a wide range of broadband and communications services for residential, commercial, institutional, governmental and professional users worldwide.”

Initially announced in January 2015 as part of his plan to fund a city on Mars, the project would cost at least $10 Billion, Musk estimated in 2015, though the latest documents did not mention any cost estimate or financing plan.

California-based SpaceX has also revealed in the documents technical details of the proposed network of satellites it wants to launch as an Internet Service Provider (ISP) to offer high-speed broadband and communication services globally…
