Qatar Pulling Out Of OPEC Amid Tensions With Saudi Arabia – Circa
.

.
The tiny, energy-rich Arab nation of Qatar announced Monday it will withdraw from OPEC in January, mixing its aspirations to increase production outside of the cartel’s constraints with the politics of slighting the Saudi-dominated group amid the kingdom’s boycott of Doha.

The surprise announcement from Qatar’s minister of state for energy affairs, Saad Sherida al-Kaabi, again throws into question the role of the cartel after needing nonmembers to push through a production cut in 2016 after prices crashed below $30 per barrel.

It also marks the first time a Mideast nation has left the cartel since its founding in 1960.

In a statement, al-Kaabi said Qatar, the world’s largest exporter of liquified natural gas, planned to increase its exports from 77 million tons of gas per year to 110 million tons…

Theresa May Caught In Massive Lie – Zero Hedge

Theresa May refused to publish the complete legal analysis of the agreement she signed. Leaked analysis proves she lied.

On November 26, Trump proclaimed the Brexit Agreement ‘Sounds Like a Great Deal for the EU’.

“I think we have to take a look at seriously whether or not the U.K. is allowed to trade. Because, you know, right now if you look at the deal, they may not be able to trade with us and that wouldn’t be a good thing.”

Theresa May has refused for over a week to post the legal review of the Brexit agreement she signed. Instead she posted allegedly “sufficient” excerpts on which Parliament could make a decision.

According to the Guardian, the excerpts “will be sufficient information for any MP to make up their mind on the legal aspects of the deal before the upcoming five-day debate, and that it keeps to the protocol that full advice is seen as confidential between lawyer and client.”…

Teacher Accidentally Showed Students Porn, Then Things Got Way Worse, Police Say – Law & Crime

A High School teacher in Bell County, Texas accidentally showed students porn in class, according to police in a Temple Daily Telegram report. This is actually not the worst thing he’s accused of doing. Investigators determined he also possessed footage of a naked 10-year-old girl. James Edward Alleman, 45, was arrested Nov. 18 for possession of child pornography.

The investigation started Sept. 28, when Alleman allegedly showed his students porn on a classroom room.

“That should have never happened,” he said in an affidavit. He resigned the same day, but his problems had just begun. Officials at Belton High School cooperated with authorities. This included giving them his district owned laptop and iPad, as well as an external hard drive and SD card from his deck.

Police said they discovered evidence of prior wrongdoing. That SD card was key. Police said these contained four videos of a 10-year-old girl in a bathroom. She was nude at points in the videos, according the affidavit…

North Dakota Man Pleads Guilty To Plot To Kill President Trump With Stolen Forklift – Gateway Pundit

A North Dakota man has pleaded guilty to an attempt to sneak into President Donald Trump’s motorcade and flip his limousine using a stolen forklift. Gregory Lee Leingang, 42, pleaded guilty to the plot on Friday.

Leingang was arrested in September 2017, when he stole the forklift from a restricted building and attempted to drive it into the motorcade route. President Trump was visiting Mandan at the time to speak at an oil refinery about tax reform.

“The forklift got stuck in a gated area and Leingang fled. He was apprehended by Mandan police, according to Sasse Russell. She said Leingang later admitted his plan to Mandan detectives, as well as a member of United States Secret Service,” Twin Cities Pioneer Press reports.

According to U.S. Assistant State’s Attorney Brandi Sasse Russell, Leingang was attempting to kill the president…

U.S. To Delay China Tariffs After Trump-Xi Dinner Meeting At G-20 In Buenos Aires – MarketWatch
.

.
The U.S. and China said they would launch negotiations to ease trade tensions, with the U.S. postponing plans to increase tariffs on $200 billion in Chinese goods.

Under the plan, the two sides would discuss forced technology transfer, intellectual-property protection, nontariff barriers, cyberintrusions and cybertheft, services and agriculture. Should the talks fail, the White House said, the tariffs on the $200 billion of goods would increase to 25% from the current 10%. The tariffs were set to increase to that level on Jan. 1.

China also agreed to purchase a “very substantial” amount of agricultural, energy and industrial goods from the U.S., the White House said. Additionally, according to the White House, Chinese President Xi Jinping said he would consider again the previously unapproved merger between Qualcomm Inc. QCOM, +0.26% and NXP Semiconductors NV NXPI, +0.55% should the deal be presented…

Hate Crime Hoax: Drake University Student Sent Racist Notes To Herself – Daily Wire

In mid-November, a Drake University student told school officials she had received four racist notes in one of the residence halls, at least one of which was addressed to her.

After a police and school investigation, the student, who has not been charged or named, admitted to writing one of the notes. The Des Moines Register reports that Drake officials “are confident the four notes reported by the female student were hoaxes.”

The student who sent the four hoax notes now faces harassment charges, according to Sgt. Paul Parizek, a Des Moines, IA, police spokesman (whether she will actually be charged remains to be seen and is unlikely). Drake spokesman Jarad Bernstein told the Register that the student also faces a campus discipline procedure, which could result in her expulsion. Again, this is unlikely, as most hoaxers claim they were trying to “start a dialogue” and get a pass.

On Friday, Drake University President Marty Martin sent a statement to students and faculty saying the notes reported by the student on Nov. 13 and 15 were “copycat hoaxes of an initial campus incident.”…

SEC Championship Game: A Dumbfounding Fake Punt And The Anatomy Of Georgia’s Epic Collapse – CBS Sports

What seemed like a dream midway through the third quarter for No. 4 Georgia turned into an SEC Championship Game nightmare. No. 1 Alabama ripped the Bulldogs’ heart out in a thrilling 35-28 classic, just 11 months after doing the same thing in the College Football Playoff National Championship inside Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

How did it happen? How did it end this way, with Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts – benched in favor of Tua Tagovailoa in last year’s match – flipping the script and producing the same result? With some gutsy calls, bad luck and a change-up that was thrown out of necessity by Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban.

You only live once, and Bulldogs coach Kirby Smart had his “YOLO” moment with 3:04 left in a tie ball game from the Alabama 48-yard line…

Former President George H. W. Bush Dead At 94 – USA Today

George Herbert Walker Bush, the president who managed the end of the Cold War and forged a global coalition to oust Iraqi forces from Kuwait, has died at age 94. In a political career that spanned three decades, he lost his bid for re-election and lived to see his son win the Oval Office.

The death of Bush – nicknamed “41” to distinguish himself from son George W. Bush, “43” – was announced in a statement released late Friday.

“Jeb, Neil, Marvin, Doro and I are saddened to announce that after 94 remarkable years, our dear Dad has died,” his son, former President George W. Bush, said in a statement released by family spokesman Jim McGrath.

“George H.W. Bush was a man of the highest character and the best dad a son or daughter could ask for. The entire Bush family is deeply grateful for 41’s life and love, for the compassion of those who have cared and prayed for Dad, and for the condolences of our friends and fellow citizens.”…

Riot police have deployed water cannon, tear gas, and stun grenades against protesters on the Champs-ةlysées in Paris, France, as the “Yellow Jackets” stage their third major rally against President Emmanuel Macron’s “green” tax hikes on fuel.

The clashes on the famous avenue leading to Napoleon Bonaparte’s iconic Arc de Triomphe come as Macron is in Argentina for the G20, threatening to disrupt a planned trade deal between the European Union and South America’s Mercosur bloc over a disagreement with Brazil’s new president Jair Bolsonaro – dubbed the “Trump of the Tropics” – over a disagreement on climate change.

Tijuana Mayor Calls For Arrest Of Caravan Organizers – Conservative Tribune

As Mexicans become increasingly impatient with the caravan of illegal immigrants staying in Tijuana, the city’s mayor suggested arresting the organizers of the caravan.

Fox News correspondent Griff Jenkins sat down with Tijuana Mayor Juan Manuel Gastelum to discuss the caravan currently camping out in his city. Gastelum told Fox News that the federal police should arrest the organizers of the caravan for “putting people at risk.”

“Let’s take care of them in a legal way,” Gastelum added. It’s not surprising that Gastelum is growing impatient with the caravan. There is an estimated over 6,000 migrants settled in his city, and they are beginning to cause problems.

“We’ve have never, never, never, never had this problem,” Gastelum said. “Some of these people are coming in violently, disrespectfully, not as a good, law-abiding citizen. And that’s what’s hurt us.”

Gastelum said the migrants are also significantly hurting Tijuana economically…

New U.S. Climate Report A ‘Scientific Embarrassment’ – Tom Harris & Dr. Madhav Khandekar

The U.S. Fourth National Climate Assessment (NCA), released last Friday, provides a superb illustration of journalist H. L. Mencken’s (1880-1950) claim:

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed, and hence clamorous to be led to safety, by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

The 1,656-page NCA report, produced by a team from thirteen federal agencies, is riddled with imaginary hobgoblins. Especially mistaken is the NCA’s repeated reference to increased warming and extreme weather events, both in the recent past and in the future. The NCA asserts:

Observations collected around the world provide significant, clear, and compelling evidence that global average temperature is much higher, and is rising more rapidly, than anything modern civilization has experienced…

Parasitic Leftists At Google Debated Burying Conservative Media In Search – Daily Caller

Google employees debated whether to bury conservative media outlets in the company’s search function as a response to President Donald Trump’s election in 2016, internal Google communications obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation reveal.

The Daily Caller and Breitbart were specifically singled out as outlets to potentially bury, the communications reveal. Trump’s election in 2016 shocked many Google employees, who had been counting on Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton to win.

Communications obtained by TheDCNF show that internal Google discussions went beyond expressing remorse over Clinton’s loss to actually discussing ways Google could prevent Trump from winning again…

California DemoNazi Party Chairman Resigns Over Accusations Of Sexual Harassment – Zero Hedge

After they allowed Harvey Weinstein to donate millions of dollars to political campaigns and host dozens of gala black-tie fundraisers in support of their candidates, it appears the California State Democratic Party is finally learning to take allegations of sexual assault seriously.

Three days after taking a “leave of absence” from running the state Democratic Party – and just a few hours after Governor-Elect Gavin Newsom called on him to quit – California Democratic Party Chairman Eric Bauman resigned Thursday afternoon.

Rumors that multiple victims were preparing to come forward to accuse Bauman of sexual harassment and sexual assault began circulating on social media Friday night, prompting Daraka Larimore-Hall, the state party’s second-vice chair, to file paperwork on Saturday to initiate the process to have Bauman removed.

In a letter sent to the party that was reported by the Sacramento Bee, Larimore-Hall alleged that he had learned of the incidents after speaking with two of the victims and a witness who accused Bauman of intimidation…

FBI Raids Home Of Whistleblower On Clinton Foundation, Lawyer Says – Daily Caller

FBI agents raided the home of a recognized Department of Justice whistleblower who privately delivered documents pertaining to the Clinton Foundation and Uranium One to a government watchdog, according to the whistleblower’s attorney.

The Justice Department’s inspector general was informed that the documents show that federal officials failed to investigate potential criminal activity regarding former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Clinton Foundation and Rosatom, the Russian company that purchased Uranium One, a document reviewed by The Daily Caller News Foundation alleges.

The delivered documents also show that then-FBI Director Robert Mueller failed to investigate allegations of criminal misconduct pertaining to Rosatom and to other Russian government entities attached to Uranium One, the document reviewed by TheDCNF alleges.

Mueller is now the special counsel investigating whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia during the 2016 election…

Weed ‘Nuns’ In California Smoke Blunts While Running A Multimillion-Dollar Business – Circa

There’s little else that’s more attention-grabbing than seeing a bunch of women in nun habits smoking a blunt, but that’s exactly what happens at Sisters of the Valley.

Sisters of the Valley is a CBD product company that is entirely owned and operated by women, and they do it all while wearing full habits. They operate from a rural ranch in Merced, California, where they’re surrounded by almond farms and cow pastures for miles.

The women come from all walks of life, from all over the world, united in their shared belief in the cannabis plant. Together, they hand-make CBD-infused salves, tinctures, soaps and oils. (CBD is cannabidiol, the trendy component of the marijuana plant that is a hemp-derived extract, but it’s not the part of the plant that gets you high.)…

Guilty Till Proven Innocent: New Bill Requires Review Of Social Media Accounts, Search Engine History To Buy A Gun – Washington Standard

In one of the most Orwellian bills to date, lawmakers in New York have drafted and proposed a bill that will require a review of a citizens social media as well as their search engine history, going back years – just to buy a gun.

Senate Bill 9191 would establish an official investigation officer who would scour the social media posts and search engine history of anyone attempting to purchase a gun. It also applies to current gun owners who want to renew their licenses.

According to the bill, when a person attempts to purchase a gun, an investigating officer would then be given the password to the gun buyer’s social media accounts. The officer would go back three years on Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter and Instagram.

The officer would scour the gun buyer’s search engine history from Google, Yahoo, and Bing. The ominous text of the bill lays out this Orwellian process clearly…

Lice, Hepatitis, TB, Chicken Pox, Scabies Plague A Third Of The Caravan Migrants, And Now There’s Rain – American Thinker

As I write this from San Diego, the rain is pouring outside my window, a rare winter rain brought on by an offshore tropical storm blowing in from the west. It’s heavy, dripping, dropping rain, and it’s getting the entire region good. Normally, rain is a cause for rejoicing in these parts, because drought is the norm, and rain makes everything turn green.

But you don’t want to be out in that rain, which is where the Tijuana caravan migrants are, just south of San Diego, soaking up rain, mud, germs, cold, bacteria, viruses – and picking up diseases.

Right now, it’s happening in Tijuana, where 6,000 migrants are still camped out. Fox News reports that more than a third, some 2,200 of them are being treated for lice, scabies, chicken pox, hepatitis, HIV, tuberculosis, and infections…
