.

.
President Trump on Monday announced that he’s directing the Pentagon to create a “space force” as the Defense Department’s sixth military service branch.

“When it comes to defending America, it is not enough to merely have an American presence in space. We must have American dominance in space,” Trump said during a meeting with members of the National Space Council (NSC).

“I’m hereby directing the Department of Defense and Pentagon to immediately begin the process necessary to establish a space force as the sixth branch of the armed forces. That’s a big statement. We are going to have the Air Force and we are going to have the Space Force, separate but equal.”…

Alleged CIA Leaker Charged With Disclosing Classified Information – New York Post

Manhattan federal prosecutors on Monday slapped a former CIA software engineer – who was already in prison on child porn charges – with a slew of new charges accusing him of the theft of classified information.

Joshua Adam Schulte, 29, was hit with a 13-count superseding indictment Monday that accuses him with everything from the theft of government property to copyright infringement to obstruction of justice.

The feds say Schulte illegally leaked classified information, including national defense information that he believed could be used “to the injury of the United States and the advantage of a foreign nation.” He faces up to 135 years in prison if convicted.

Schulte has been in Manhattan’s Metropolitan Correctional Center since last year after the feds raided his NYC apartment on suspicion that he had leaked classified documents to Wikileaks in what has been described as one of the worst leaks in CIA history…

Bush-Appointed Judge Strikes Down Kansas Voter ID Law – Daily Caller

A federal judge in Kansas City struck down a state law Monday requiring Kansas voters to show proof of citizenship before casting ballots.

U.S. District Judge Julie Robinson, a George W. Bush appointee, found the statute unlawfully burdens ballot access for eligible voters, in violation of the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA) and the Constitution.

“The court determines that the magnitude of potentially disenfranchised voters impacted by the law and its enforcement scheme cannot be justified by the scant evidence of noncitizen voter fraud before and after the law was passed, by the need to ensure the voter rolls are accurate, or by the state’s interest in promoting public confidence in elections,” the judge wrote.

Robinson maintained that prohibiting eligible citizens from voting because they lack proper identification did more to damage public confidence in the electoral process than voter fraud…

During the testimony IG Horowitz admitted that top level Clinton 2016 campaign operative Amanda Renteria and Attorney General Loretta Lynch exchanged “highly classified material” with each other in 2016.

Firefighters Suspended For Making Porn Videos At Firehouse – Circa

Two firefighters in Ohio have been suspended for making pornographic videos at a firehouse.

Akron officials say Arthur Dean and Deann Eller were both placed on administrative leave on Monday while the city launched an investigation into the matter.

Fire Chief Clarence Tucker says someone told a firefighter last week about the acts possibly being performed on city property.

The firefighter reported it to his supervisor, who then told the chief.

Tucker and Mayor Dan Horrigan said in a joint statement that Dean and Eller did not work at the same fire station, but were known to be in a long-term relationship.

Officials have not identified the firehouse where the videos took place.

A spokesman for the local firefighters’ union says Eller and Dean have no comment…

Venezuela Forced To Shut Down Oil Production As Operations Fall Apart – OilPrice

Every week the crisis in Venezuela takes a turn for the worse.

There are now signs that its oil industry is entering a dangerous new phase. Argus Media reports that Venezuela has begun to “proactively shut in oil production to cope with nearly replete terminal storage, further accelerating an output decline and bringing the OPEC country closer to the psychological barrier of 1mn b/d.”

Venezuela’s oil production fell to an average of 1.392 million barrels per day in May, down another 42,000 bpd from a month earlier, according to OPEC’s secondary sources. However, with the crisis in Venezuela spiraling out of control at a horrific pace, the numbers from May might as well be a year ago.

The May numbers don’t reflect the full ramifications of having to deal with inadequate port capacity, after PDVSA diverted operations to Venezuela from its Caribbean island refineries and storage facilities following the attempt by ConocoPhillips to take control of them…

Audi CEO Rupert Stadler Arrested In Germany As Volkswagen Emissions Scandal Lingers – USA Today
.

.
The CEO of Audi was arrested in Germany on suspicion of his involvement in the Volkswagen emissions scandal.

The German investigation ensnared Audi boss Rupert Stadler, who was widely considered a subject of the probe but had so far survived the fallout from the scandal despite questions over the VW luxury brand’s role.

Stadler, who was accused by Munich prosecutors of collusion, becomes the first person in the VW executive suite to spend time behind bars in connection with the scandal.

But he’s not the first high-level executive to face accusations of involvement. Former VW CEO Martin Winterkorn was previously indicted in the U.S. on felony charges of conspiracy and wire fraud, but he has eluded arrest because he has not traveled to the U.S. since the Justice Department filed charges…

113 Politicians Have Been Killed During This Campaign Season In Mexico – PVDN

Gunmen shot and killed a mayor running for re-election in Mexico on Thursday, the second murder of a politician in a week after a candidate running for federal office was shot in the back of the head while taking a selfie with a supporter.

At least 113 politicians have been killed in the bloodiest election campaign in Mexico’s modern history, and the violence appears to be intensifying in the final weeks before the July 1 nationwide election.

Political assassinations have rocked the electoral season leading up to July 1, when voters will decide over 3,000 down-ballot seats and elect a new president.

Widespread disenchantment with the ruling Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) over record levels of violence, political corruption and sluggish economic growth has helped propel leftist Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador to lead voter preferences for the presidency…

The state of Illinois has approved $224 million to pay for street and transportation projects in Chicago’s South Side neighborhood around the Obama Presidential Center site, $199 million of which will fall directly on the shoulders of Illinois taxpayers.

Gov. Bruce Rauner signed into law the legislature’s budget on June 4, which included $174 million for road work in and around Jackson Park – where the 235-foot-tall building would be located – and another $50 million to renovate an above-ground rail stop two miles away.

After Three Decades, Couple Prevails Over Union – Washington Free Beacon

When David and Shirley Pirlott filed a federal labor complaint against Teamsters Local 75 on Nov. 8, 1987, the day before the Berlin Wall fell, they did not imagine they would have to wait 30 years to resolve the dispute.

The Pirlotts were finally vindicated in March 2018 when the Wisconsin-based Teamsters local mailed them separate checks of about $3,000 for failing to allow them to opt out of union dues.

The case spanned five presidencies, dozens of National Labor Relations Board members, and numerous appearances before the D.C. Court of Appeals. In the time it took for the NLRB to issue its decision, the Pirlotts welcomed six grandchildren and four great grandchildren to the world, and Local 75 no longer existed having merged into Local 662.

The Pirlotts are a patient couple.

Shirley, 73, was a union steward when she met David, 63, at Schreiber Foods…

Child Border Crossers Have Higher Standard Of Living Than 13 Million Impoverished American Children – Breitbart

Migrant children who cross into the United States either alone or with adults have a higher standard of living once they are put into federal care than the more than 13 million American children who are living in poverty across the country.

In Fiscal Year 2017, the federal government referred nearly 41,000 unaccompanied minor border crossers to the Unaccompanied Alien Children program which is facilitated by the Office of Refugee Resettlement.

Data provided to Breitbart News reveals that each unaccompanied minor costs the federal government about $34,660 annually. This is a higher standard of living per child than the roughly 13 million American children who continue to live below the U.S. poverty line.

In 2016, there were about 13.2 million American children under the age of 18 living in poverty. These are U.S. children, for example, whose parents or guardians – in a household of four – earn less than $24,500 a year…

Here’s The Rundown On The Corrupt Obama-Appointed Judge Who Tossed Manafort In Jail – Joe Hoft

It sure seems like every Obama appointed judge is a far left radical who puts their own distorted interpretation of reality ahead of the U.S. Constitution. In this respect, U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson is a case study. This past week she again showed that she puts politics before the law.

Her actions with Paul Manafort alone are cause for her to be removed or impeached.

We reported two months ago and again earlier this month, that Obama appointed liberal activist Judge, Amy Berman Jackson, was assigned to the most important court case in U.S. history.

Sadly, Judge Jackson has a horrible far left record on the bench. In 2013 Judge Jackson rejected arguments from the Catholic Church that Obamacare’s requirements that employers provide cost free coverage to contraceptive services is contrary to their religious beliefs and violated their religious and free speech freedoms. This was overturned by the Supreme Court…

Space Catapult Startup Gets $40 Million Investment From Google And Airbus To Fling Objects Into Orbit – Daily Mail
.

.
A Silicon Valley startup has devised an ingenious way of sending rockets into space. Dubbed SpinLaunch, the firm wants to blast tiny payloads into orbit atop miniature rockets. But instead of using propellants like a typical launch would, SpinLaunch would slingshot them into space using a novel catapult technology.

SpinLaunch has already developed a working prototype of its launcher, but has provided few details on how it operates, beyond the fact that it requires the firm to get a rocket spinning in a circle as fast as 5,000mph before they let it go.

The company announced on Thursday that it received a $40 million from top investors including Google parent Alphabet’s investment arm, GV, venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield Byers and Airbus Ventures…

Paris is putting bulletproof walls around the Eiffel Tower to combat potential terrorist attacks as part of a project unveiled by city officials Thursday.

A barrier will be placed around the famous Parisian attraction in order to shield it from possible terror threats, according to the New York Post. The 10-foot panels are 2.36 inches thick, and there will be 450 in total on the northern and southern parts of the Eiffel Tower.
