New Jersey set to make gun owners criminals?

The People’s Republic of New Jersey, again

New Jersey law enforcement officials refused to say on Thursday how they planned to go about enforcing the state’s ban on the possession of any magazine capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition, which goes into effect on Monday.

Neither the state police nor the attorney general’s office elaborated on how they plan to enforce the law. Nor did they provide any guidance for those currently in possession of the magazines.

The law, signed by Gov. Phil Murphy in June along with five other new gun laws, gave New Jersey gun owners who currently possess the magazines in question 180 days to either surrender them, permanently modify them to only accept up to 10 rounds, or transfer them to somebody who is allowed to legally own them. The deadline is set to expire on Monday.

lawsuit brought by the Association of New Jersey Rifle and Pistol Clubs and supported by the National Rifle Association failed on Thursday as the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals declared the confiscation law constitutional. Any civilian caught in possession of a magazine capable of holding more than 10 rounds may be arrested and prosecuted. Possession of such magazines after the deadline will be considered a crime of the fourth degree under state law and carry up to 18 months in prison and up to $10,000 in fines or both.

So, will New Jersey trample our constitution, which  the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals clearly has not read. Or will they choose to not harass these citizens?

Macron’s France: Hundreds Detained As ‘Yellow Jackets’ March On Presidential Palace – Breitbart
.

.
Crowds of yellow-vested protesters angry at President Emmanuel Macron and France’s high taxes tried to march on the presidential palace Saturday, surrounded by exceptional numbers of police bracing for outbreaks of violence after the worst rioting in Paris in decades.

Rows of helmeted, thickly protected riot police blocked the demonstrators’ passage down the Champs-Elysees avenue toward the heart of presidential power. A ring of steel surrounded the Elysee Palace itself as police stationed trucks and reinforced steel barriers in streets throughout the entire neighbourhood.

Prized Paris monuments and normally bustling shopping meccas locked down and tens of thousands of police took position around France…

Satanic Leftists Update: Elementary School Principal Bans Candy Canes; Says ‘J Shape’ Stands For Jesus – New York Post

An elementary school principal in Nebraska was placed on leave after telling teachers to avoid decorating their classrooms with Christmas-themed ornaments so as not to offend those who don’t celebrate the holiday.

The principal at Manchester Elementary School, identified by Fox affiliate KPTM as Jennifer Sinclair, sent out a memo earlier this week with guidelines as to what is considered appropriate for classroom decorations and assignments.

Teachers reportedly were told that generic winter-themed items, such as sledding and scarves, and the “Frozen” character Olaf, were acceptable.

Decorations that included Santa, Christmas trees, reindeer, green and red items and even candy canes, however, were not acceptable for the elementary school.

The candy canes, according to KETV, were prohibited because Sinclair deemed them to have religious significance. “Historically, the shape is a ‘J’ for Jesus…

A high school girls’ soccer coach accused of public indecency has come up with a strange defense. Blaming several incidents in which he is accused of flashing young women on recently gained weight, the athletic instructor told police that people had simply spotted him in his car with his pants undone for comfort.

David Sharpe, 29, a recently-resigned coach at Staples High School in Westport, Connecticut, was charged on Dec. 1 for public indecency and second-degree breach of peace. Police say that Sharpe had driven up to a 16-year-old in Fairfield, Connecticut and masturbated in front of her on Oct. 23.

According to the arrest warrant affidavit, a man later identified as Sharpe allegedly pulled up to the teenager in his black Ford Mustang and made eye contact with her while touching himself. The girl told her mother who, in turn, alerted police.

Officers had immediately attempted to find the vehicle described by the girl but could not do so. Later, police were able to trace back the car to Sharpe after it was spotted on a highway…

Memo Details How Trump Will Rein In EPA’s Control Over ‘Ephemeral Streams,’ ‘Ditches’ – Daily Caller

The Trump administration will roll back an Obama-era regulation that extended federal control over U.S. waterways, including over “ephemeral streams” and “ditches.”

“The previous administration’s 2015 rule wasn’t about water quality. It was about power – power in the hands of the federal government over farmers, developers, and landowners,” reads a draft Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) memo obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Landscaper Smeared In Syrup Secretly Recorded Sex With Colleague In Client’s Home – New York Post

Consider this the International House of Mistakes. A landscaper smeared himself in maple syrup during a break while working at a Connecticut home to watch porn and then secretly recorded himself having sex with a female co-worker when she joined in on the sticky scene, according to a report.

Robert Somley, 52, was booked on a voyeurism charge after he refused to delete the video when his 48-year-old colleague learned they were being recorded during the syrup-covered sexcapade inside the Monroe home, the Connecticut Post reports.

The bizarre ordeal unfolded after Somley said he needed a break while the two were loading wood into a trailer. When he didn’t return after 20 minutes, the unidentified woman went to look for him.

The woman soon found Somley inside the home, where she told police he was standing naked while watching porn on a laptop…

Judge Calls Hillary’s Use Of Private Email Server “One Of The Gravest Modern Offenses To Government Transparency”, Orders Further Fact-Finding – Daily Wire

On Thursday, a federal judge ordered further investigation into officials’ handling of Hillary Clinton’s private email server during her four-year tenure as secretary of state.

Her use of an unapproved, unsecured private email server, he said in the blistering ruling, is “one of the gravest modern offenses to government transparency.”

The ruling revolves around a Freedom of Information Act suit brought by a conservative government watchdog. Judicial Watch, U.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth ruled Thursday, should be given access to documents and be permitted to acquire additional testimony about Clinton’s use of a private server and officials’ failure to be transparent about information searches related to it.

Judge Lamberth’s opinion, published by Politico, begins by quoting former President Barack Obama, who, on his first full day in office, waxed eloquent about the importance of transparency in government and declared his administration’s commitment to FOIA…

Feds Received Whistleblower Evidence In 2017 Alleging Clinton Foundation Wrongdoing – The Hill

When a House subcommittee chairman bangs his gavel next week to convene an unprecedented investigative hearing into the Clinton Foundation, two questions will linger as preeminent: Is the Clinton family charity really the international do-gooder that earned a perfect four-star rating from Charity Navigator, or does it suffer from corruption and illegalities as conservatives allege?

And if it is the latter, how much evidence of wrongdoing does the government possess?

The answer to the first question is that the foundation and its projects reported collecting about $2.5 billion to help global crises, from AIDS to earthquakes, even as its own auditors, lawyers and employees privately warned of problems over the years.

The answer to the second question may reside in 6,000 pages of evidence attached to a whistleblower submission filed secretly more than a year ago with the IRS and FBI.

That evidence was assembled by a private firm called MDA Analytics LLC…

Sacre’ Bleu!: France Tops OECD Table As Most Taxed Country – Wall Street Journal

France became the most heavily taxed of the world’s rich countries in 2017, according to figures published the day after President Emmanuel Macron backed off a fuel-tax increase that enraged much of the nation and sparked a grass-roots protest movement against his government.

The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s annual review of taxes in its 36 members published on Wednesday showed the French government’s tax revenues were the equivalent of 46.2% of economic output, up from 45.5% in 2016 and 43.4% in 2000.

The Danish government’s tax take, which was the highest among OECD members between 2002 and 2016, fell to 46% of gross domestic product from 46.2% in the previous year and 46.9% in 2000.

The U.S. government’s tax revenues also rose relative to the size of the economy as a result of a one-off tax on accumulated profits earned by American businesses overseas. But at 27.1% of GDP, only five countries had a lower tax take: Mexico, Turkey, Chile, South Korea and Ireland. The OECD’s figures include taxes collected at state and local levels.

Embarrassing: Europeans Realizing Trump Was Right About Iran – Daily Wire

It must be murder for them to admit it, but suddenly Western European leaders are realizing President Trump was right about ditching the Iran nuclear treaty.

On Tuesday, diplomats from the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, and France expressed their concern because of an Iranian medium-range ballistic missile test on Saturday.

The U.S. government stated that the missile Iran tested could reach Europe and the Middle East. According to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the missile could carry multiple warheads and violated Security Council Resolution 2231, which instructed Iran to refrain from “any activity related to ballistic missiles designed to be capable of delivering nuclear weapons, including launches using such ballistic missile technology.”

That Security Council resolution was the implementation of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPoA). President Trump walked away from the deal last May, although China, France, Germany, Russia and the U.K. stayed with the deal…

Blood Test To Detect Cancer Within Just 10 Minutes Developed By Scientists – Daily Telegraph

A blood test can detect cancer within just 10 minutes, scientists have found, raising hopes that hard-to-spot diseases could be picked up early when treatment is most effective.

Currently doctors use symptoms and a raft of tests and biopsies to determine if cancer is present which can sometimes take months. The new method from the University of Queensland looks for differences in the genetic code of cancerous and healthy cells.

The team found that the DNA of cancer cells sticks strongly to nanoparticles of gold giving a quick indication whether disease is present or not to the naked eye. And because the same changes occur in all cancerous cells, the test should work on all cancer types, the team believes.

Writing in the journal Nature Communications Dr Matt Trau, Professor of Chemistry, said: “Our approach enabled non-invasive cancer detection, i.e a blood test, in 10 min from plasma derived DNA samples with excellent specificity…

Chinese Commerce Ministry: Trade Agreement With U.S. Will Be Implemented – Sputnik News

China is sure that the recent trade agreement reached by U.S. President Donald Trump and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Argentina will be fulfilled, the Chinese Commerce Ministry said Wednesday.

“The meeting was very successful. We have confidence that the agreement will be implemented. The working groups of the two states will actively hold consultations for 90 days in accordance with the agreement and the road map,” the ministry said in a statement.

Trump agreed last week at G20 to postpone increasing the tariff on $200 billion in Chinese imports to 25 percent, initially planned to go through on January 1. China, in turn, agreed to purchase a “substantial amount” of U.S. agricultural, energy and industrial products, among others, to reduce the trade imbalance between the two countries…

Jobless Claims Fell Last Week; Still No Signs Of Tariff Strains – Breitbart

Fewer Americans filed for jobless claims last week than the week prior, indicating a tight labor market where employers are struggling to hire and retain employees and fears that the trade war with China would trigger layoffs have not been realized.

The number of Americans filing applications for state unemployment benefits fell by 4,000 to a seasonally adjusted 231,000 in the week ended December 1, the Labor Department said Thursday.

Initial jobless claims are a proxy for layoffs across the U.S. and so they’ve become closely watched for signs that tariffs could be costing jobs. Those signs have not shown up so far, with jobless claims continuing to come in a historically low levels.

Jobless claims can be volatile week to week, especially around the holidays. The four-week moving average of claims, which smooths out that volatility, rose last week by 4,250 to 228,000. That is still considered a very low level…

Illinois’ Other Debt Disaster: $73 Billion Unfunded State Retiree Health Benefits – Zero Hedge

Pensions get all the attention when it comes to Illinois’ collapsing finances. But there’s another government-worker benefit also wreaking fiscal havoc – free and heavily-subsidized retiree health insurance for state workers.

Illinois has promised $166 billion in retiree health insurance benefits to public-sector workers over the next 38 years. Actuaries say the state should have $73 billion invested today so it can safely make those payments in the future. The problem is, the state hasn’t set aside anything at all.

That $73 billion hole is yet another financial time-bomb – one that’s been totally ignored thus far by Illinois’ lawmakers, civic leaders and the media. Unfunded healthcare promises have grown 80 percent in the past decade and are now compounding Illinois’ state and local pension crises.

Illinois courts have ruled that public employee health obligations, like pension benefits, cannot be impaired…

The Trump administration is reportedly preparing to give the coal industry a boost by rolling back another Obama-era environmental regulation.

Under the Obama-era mandate, new coal plants were not allowed to emit more than 1,400 pounds of carbon dioxide per megawatt-hour. The Trump administration is due to raise this limit to 1,900 pounds.

Teacher fired for refusing to butcher English language

It has come to this

A Virginia high school teacher who refused to use a transgender student’s new pronouns has been fired.

News outlets report that the West Point School Board voted unanimously Thursday to dismiss Peter Vlaming after a four-hour hearing that drew an overflow crowd. The school system said in a statement that Vlaming was fired for insubordination.

Over the summer, the ninth-grade student’s family informed the school system of the student’s gender transition to male. The student wasn’t involved in Thursday’s hearing.

It’s not suggested that the 47-year-old West Point High School French teacher deliberately referred to the student using female pronouns in the student’s presence, but in conversations with others.
