Devoted Trump Supporter Corey Stewart Wins Virginia GOP Senate Nomination – WRIC
.

.
A conservative provocateur and supporter of President Donald Trump won Virginia’s Republican primary Tuesday in the U.S. Senate race, and he has promised to run a “vicious” campaign against incumbent Tim Kaine.

No Democrats challenged Kaine, a former governor and 2016 vice-presidential candidate, for his party’s nomination.

Republican Corey Stewart beat state lawmaker Nick Freitas and Chesapeake minister E.W. Jackson. Stewart had long been on the fringe of the state’s GOP; now the win makes him the standard-bearer of a deeply divided party that hasn’t won a statewide race in nearly a decade…

Pro-Trump Danny Tarkanian Wins Nevada GOP Congressional Primary – The Hill

Danny Tarkanian is projected to win his Republican congressional primary on Tuesday in the race to replace outgoing Rep. Jacky Rosen (D-Nev.) in November.

The Associated Press called the race for him at 9:30 p.m. PDT.

Tarkanian, who is fresh off a narrow defeat in the district south of Las Vegas in 2016, overcame nine Republicans challengers to win the primary Tuesday. Rosen, a freshman lawmaker, is vacating her seat to run for Senate.

The Nevada businessman was originally running as a GOP primary challenger to incumbent Sen. Dean Heller (R-Nev.) but switched to run for the House seat after being urged by President Trump.

Tarkanian, the son of legendary University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) basketball coach Jerry Tarkanian, received an endorsement from Trump after announcing that he would run for the 3rd District’s open seat…

Rep. Mark Sanford Loses In South Carolina Primary After Trump Urges His Ouster – Business Insider
.

.
U.S. Representative Mark Sanford, a vocal critic of President Donald Trump, lost a Republican congressional primary in South Carolina on Tuesday, after Trump urged voters to punish Sanford’s disloyalty by tossing him from office.

A few hours before polls closed, Trump tweeted that Sanford was “nothing but trouble” and “very unhelpful to me.” He backed Sanford’s pro-Trump challenger, state legislator Katie Arrington, for November’s congressional elections.

Arrington, who made a campaign issue of Sanford’s criticism of Trump, won 50.6 percent of the vote to Sanford’s 46.5 percent with almost all ballots counted. That just crossed the 50 percent threshold to avoid a runoff later this month between the top two contenders…

Democrat Tom Steyer Caught Using More Felons For Renewable Energy Campaign – Daily Caller

A Tom Steyer-led campaign to push renewable energy on Arizona electricity customers is hiring more convicted felons than originally anticipated, a discovery that endangers residents and violates state law.

A heated battle is underway to reform Arizona’s energy mix. Clean Energy for a Healthy Arizona is an environmentalist campaign working on the ground to require utilities in the state obtain 50 percent of their electricity from renewable sources, such as wind and solar, by 2030. To make this is a reality, the green energy campaign must amend the state constitution. Supporters are currently working to collect 225,963 valid voters’ signatures by July in order to have a referendum on the 2018 ballot.

However, not everything has run smoothly for the renewables campaign.

Financial reports in April revealed that Clean Energy for a Healthy Arizona was solely funded by NextGen Climate Action, an environmentalist group founded and bankrolled by billionaire activist Tom Steyer…

Slimeball Andrew McCabe Sues FBI, Justice Department And Inspector General – Washington Times

Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe filed a lawsuit Tuesday against the FBI, the Justice Department and its inspector general, alleging the Trump administration violated procedures when it fired him in March just hours before his retirement.

In the 36-page complaint filed in federal court in the District of Columbia, his attorneys argue that the Justice Department is refusing to hand over documents relating to the policies and procedures related to Mr. McCabe’s dismissal because it fears further litigation.

The Justice Department cited “lack of candor” as a reason for its dismissal of Mr. McCabe on March 16, just before his scheduled March 18 retirement. Mr. McCabe had worked at the FBI for more than two decades, but the firing upended Mr. McCabe’s ability to collect his benefits and pension early.

“We don’t create or adjudicate under secret law or procedure,” David Snyder, an attorney for Mr. McCabe, told The Associated Press…

Yellow Alert Has Just Been Issued For 2 Major Volcanoes In North America – Washington Standard
.

Massive eruptions of Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano and Guatemala’s Fuego volcano have captivated the entire world in recent days, and now it looks like even more volcanoes are starting to wake up. In fact, yellow alerts were just issued for Mexico’s Mt. Popocatepetl and Alaska’s Great Sitkin volcano.

Mt. Popocatepetl and Great Sitkin both sit along the “Ring of Fire” that roughly encircles the perimeter of the Pacific Ocean, and many are becoming concerned that we may be witnessing some sort of “chain reaction” as volcanoes all over the globe begin to exhibit signs of increased activity.

This even includes some unusual happenings at Yellowstone…

Charitable Giving In U.S. Tops $400 Billion For First Time – Circa

Fueled by a surging stock market and huge gifts from billionaires, charitable giving in the United States in 2017 topped the $400 billion mark for the first time, according to the latest comprehensive report on Americans’ giving patterns.

The Giving USA report, released Tuesday, said giving from individuals, estates, foundations and corporations reached an estimated $410 billion in 2017 – more than the gross domestic product of countries such as Israel and Ireland.

The total was up 5.2 percent in current dollars (3 percent adjusted for inflation) from the estimate of $389.64 billion for 2016.

“Americans’ record-breaking charitable giving in 2017 demonstrates that even in divisive times our commitment to philanthropy is solid,” said Aggie Sweeney, chair of Giving USA Foundation, which publishes the annual report. It is researched and written by the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy…

Twitter Shuts Down Black Conservative C.J. Pearson After Falsely Claiming He’s Only 13 Years Old – Conservative Firing Line
.

.
On Monday, Twitter shut down the account for C.J. Pearson, a very outspoken young black conservative Trump supporter. Twitter said it shut down his account after it “determined” that he’s 13 years old and therefore too young to use their platform. There’s only one problem – Pearson is actually 15 years old.

According to Big League Politics:

Pearson initially reached fame in 2015 on the video-sharing website YouTube, where he shared his conservative, anti-Obama views. Since then he has become a social media powerhouse, with nearly 400,000 likes on Facebook and 135,000 followers on Twitter.

Pearson would regularly share his conservative values…

The Democrats’ IT Scandal Cover-Up – Daniel John Sobieski

Former DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz subverted our democracy and interfered in the 2016 election in ways Moscow could only dream of, yet while Special Counsel Robert Mueller continues to chase Russian phantoms, the case against Wasserman Schultz and Imran Awan, the IT director she and other Congressional Democrats employed, continues to drag on despite overwhelming evidence of criminality and clear national security implications.

Schultz was forced to step down after hacked emails revealed that she and the DNC had their finger on the scales and actively worked to defeat Bernie Sanders in the 2016 Democratic primaries in favor of Hillary Clinton.

She has been forced to step aside after a leak of internal DNC emails showed officials actively favoring Hillary Clinton during the presidential primary and plotting against Clinton’s rival, Bernie Sanders…

President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un signed a document on Tuesday stating that Pyongyang would work toward “complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula” – a historic concession, which was one of the requirements the U.S. sought at the summit in Singapore.

The historic agreement came after the two leaders held several meetings throughout the day. Trump was asked by a reporter if Kim agreed to denuclearize and he said, “We are starting that process very quickly.”

Redskins Replacement Players From 1987 To Get Super Bowl Rings – Washington Times

David Windham never thought of himself as a “scab.” He just wanted to play football.

When NFL players went on strike in 1987, Windham was one of the “replacements” who crossed the picket lines for a chance to chase a football dream. For three weeks, Windham and the other replacement Redskins practiced at the team facility, wore the burgundy and gold on game days and played in front of the RFK Stadium crowd.

The replacement Redskins went 3-0 during the strike, then returned to obscurity when Doug Williams, Art Monk and the other regulars came back and put together their run to a Super Bowl title. Aided by the replacements’ winning streak, the regular Redskins cruised into the playoffs and on to a championship – a debt the team is acknowledging with a ceremony Tuesday in Ashburn to present Super Bowl rings to the long-overlooked contributors.

After the strike, Windham fared better than most, spending the rest of the season as part of the Redskins’ reserve squad…

Supreme Court Says States Can Remove Voters Who Skip Elections, Ignore Warnings – USA Today

Failing to vote can lead to getting knocked off voter registration rolls, a deeply divided Supreme Court ruled Monday in a decision that likely will help Republicans and hurt Democrats.

The court’s conservative majority ruled 5-4 that Ohio did not violate federal laws by purging voters who failed to vote for six years and did not confirm their residency – considered the strictest such law in the nation.

The ruling protects similar laws in six states, including several electing governors or U.S. senators this fall. They are Pennsylvania, Georgia, Oregon, Oklahoma, West Virginia and Montana…

Argentina’s Peso Is Collapsing Again – Zero Hedge

Just a few short days after agreeing a record bailout by The IMF, Argentina’s currency is back in freefall, collapsing to more than 26 pesos per dollar as Argentine truckers plan a national strike on Thursday that investors fear will push the government to fold on reforms… and growing anxiety over BRCA’s decision.

Companies rejected demand for 27% wage increases from truck drivers, Hugo Moyano, leader of the nation’s truckers union, says in press conference, confirming plans for a nationwide strike on Thursday.

Additionally, it appears BCRA’s decision to withdraw its USD5b daily offer shook the FX market. The central bank was absent from the market on Friday and the peso had its biggest drop in two weeks. BCRA decides monetary policy tomorrow, in first meeting after government and International Monetary Fund agreement.

This is the biggest drop in the peso in over a month…

Geert Wilders spoke at a massive rally for Tommy Robinson on Saturday. 20,000 people came out to call for Tommy’s release, and Wilders took the opportunity to put the political elites of Britain and continental Europe on notice.

“Our governments,” Wilders declared, “sold us out with mass immigration. With Islamization. With open borders. We are almost foreigners in our own lands. And if we complain about it, they call us racists and Islamophobes. But I say, no more! And what do you say? No more! And that’s right: enough is enough. We will not be gagged anymore. No more tyranny.”

It was extraordinary that the British authorities allowed Wilders into the country at all,,,

Man Bites Straphanger’s Lip Off In Subway Station Brawl – New York Post

He bit off more than he could chew.

A brawl between two Brooklyn straphangers turned gory over the weekend when one man bit off part of another guy’s lip, according to police and a video of the incident.

The two unidentified combatants got into a scuffle inside the Utica Avenue 4/5/6 station in Crown Heights at about 10 p.m. Saturday, police said.

The men first circled one another and postured while a crowd of onlookers egged them on, according to graphic cell-phone footage posted to YouTube.

“Just swing!” one spectator can be heard shouting.

Other commuters simply walked through the battle as though nothing was going on.

Things then got ugly when the taller of the two combatants pinned the shorter one behind an MTA vending machine.

The shorter man twisted his arm around his foe and socked him once in the head…

Facebook Is Hiring “News Credibility Specialists” That Will Pass Judgment On Which Sites Are “Credible” And Which Sites Are Not – Washington Standard
.

.
The war on “fake news” is about to go to an entirely new level. According to media reports, Facebook has been seeking to hire “news credibility specialists” that will be tasked with “evaluating” which news publishers are “credible” and which are not.

If the goal was just to simply filter out the handful of websites that purposely publish fake news stories, that would be fine.

But as we have seen so many times in recent years, these types of programs inevitably discriminate against conservative viewpoints. Facebook is highly liberal, and they will be hiring from a California talent pool that is also highly liberal. And liberals invariably consider liberal viewpoints to be more “credible” than conservative viewpoints…

A Crank Called Colorado Police To Shut Down Kids’ Lemonade Stand, And It Worked – The Federalist

There is nothing more American than little kids in the neighborhood running a lemonade stand. It’s not a European thing, nor is it a Chinese thing. Only in America.

For generations, lemonade stands have become a staple of summer and, like apple pies, one of the best things to demonstrate the American spirit: earning your own spending money through entrepreneurship.

That’s why Jennifer Knowles, a Denver mom of three boys, thought it was a good idea to have her boys run a lemonade stand in their Stapleton, Colorado, neighborhood this past Memorial Day. She hoped to teach her boys lessons she learned when she had her own lemonade stand as a little girl – entrepreneurship, responsibility, and the value of running your own business.

Her boys decided to take it a step further: they planned to donate all proceeds from their lemonade stand to a charity organization called Compassion International…

What’s Going On With Justin Trudeau’s Eyebrow? – Daily Caller

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau appeared to be losing an eyebrow when speaking with reporters on Thursday at the G7 Summit.

French President Emmanuel Macron and Trudeau addressed reporters at the summit, and Trudeau trashed the United States for implementing new metal tariffs on U.S. allies. However, Twitter users pointed out that during his screed it looked like he may have been losing a fake eyebrow.

The original video on the Canadian public access channel, CPAC, showed that the weird eyebrow situation was, in fact, real. It is unclear if he was simply suffering from bad lighting or just abnormally bushy eyebrows, but Twitter ran rampant with speculation…

TSA Criticized Over Video Showing Agents Searching 96-Year-Old Woman In Wheelchair – The Hill

Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agents are facing heavy criticism on social media after a video of a 96-year-old woman in a wheelchair being searched by agents at Washington Dulles International Airport was seen by almost 9 million people last month.

Jeanne Clarkson told CBS News that she was furious that her mother, who is seen in the video being patted down by TSA agents in her chair with a metal detector, was treated in such a manner.

“I was just shocked. I’ve traveled with her before, I’ve been in a wheelchair myself unable to walk through the machines and I’ve never had that kind of a pat-down ever. I was just shocked. I couldn’t believe they were doing this to my 96-year-old mother,” Clarkson said. “It was just shock, and frustration because they would not talk to me. I felt helpless.”

Clarkson can be heard protesting in the nearly six-minute video, which was posted in mid-May, sarcastically asking if agents expected her elderly mother would try to set off a shoe bomb…

State Democrat Parties Accused Of Illegally Funneling $84M Into Hillary Clinton’s Campaign – Gateway Pundit

A federal lawsuit filed in a Virginia court this week by attorney Dan Backer accused as many as 40 state Democrat parties of illegally funneling $84 million into Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

“You had individuals giving $300,000. They’re not doing it because they care about Nevada’s or Arkansas’ state party. They’re doing it to curry favor with and buy influence with Hillary Clinton,” Dan Backer told the Las Vegas Review Journal.

Attorney Dan Backer told the paper he filed the lawsuit after the FEC ignored a deadline for taking action stemming from a previous complaint.

Various spokesmen for state Democrat parties pushed back on the lawsuit…
