French Billionaires Pledge Nearly $350 Million To Rebuild Notre Dame – Zeto Hedge

In what some might ascribe to a holy week miracle, the interior of Notre Dame was miraculously saved last night by the more than 400 firefighters worker to suppress a devastating fire that destroyed the roof of the 850-year-old cathedral, as well as its iconic spire.

In a speech delivered shortly before midnight, French President Emmanuel Macron implored the French people to join a national fundraising campaign to repair the damage, and at least one of the country’s wealthiest men has already obliged.

French billionaire François-Henri Pinault said Monday night that he and his family would donate €100 million ($113 million) to the rebuilding effort. Pinault, who is chairman of Kerring group, the luxury goods powerhouse behind Gucci, Balenciaga and Yves Saint Laurent, said the money would come from his family’s investment firm, Artemis.

In a statement, the billionaire, who is married to actress Selma Hayek, said he hopes that the money will help the Catholic Church “completely rebuild Notre Dame.”…

.

.
Two Maryland men have been charged with assault and robbery after attacking a man who was wearing a red Make America Great Again (MAGA) hat.

Atsu Nable, a legal immigrant from Togo, was reportedly out enjoying the spring weather in Germantown, Va., when the suspects approached him and started harassing him about his MAGA hat.

According to a Montgomery County Police Department press release, Nable said he told them that he is entitled to his views and walked away.

But the suspects then began striking the victim and telling him to take the hat off. He told FOX5 he was “shocked” when one of the assailants hit him from behind…

Naked, Knife-Wielding Suspect Plows Into Palmdale, California Carl’s Jr. Before Being Shot Dead By McDonald’s Guard – KCAL

A naked 29-year-old man brandishing a knife was shot and killed by a security guard after a bizarre series of events Sunday afternoon in which he reportedly plowed his car into a Palmdale fast food restaurant, and then stabbed an elderly man at an adjoining eatery.

The incident played out at around 4:30 p.m. in the area of 25th Street and East Avenue S.

It began when the suspect, described initially as a shirtless Latino man, crashed his car into into the wall of a Carl’s Jr. restaurant, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. He then got out and ran across the street to a nearby McDonald’s, during which time he undressed completely.

Deputies said the man, now naked, entered the McDonald’s and stabbed an 88-year-old man who was eating with his grandson.

As the suspect was coming out of the McDonald’s, he was confronted by an armed security guard, the sheriff’s department said…

Taxes Down 25 Percent Nationwide Due To Trump’s Cuts – Epoch Times
.

.
Americans paid 25 percent less in taxes on average in 2018, even though the impact isn’t reflected in the refund totals, according to data from tax preparation firm H&R Block.

According to H&R Block, Americans on average saw their tax refunds go up by just 1.4 percent, causing confusion among many who viewed the refund total as their bottom line and expected to see a major boost following the passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

The tax cuts indeed resulted in a 25 percent tax decrease, but average Americans saw the benefit in form of larger paychecks every month as a result of new tax withholding tables from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), which were also introduced as a result of the tax cuts…

Trump Raises $30 Million For 2020 Campaign, More Than Any Active Democrat Candidate – Fortune

President Donald Trump raised more than $30 million for his re-election effort, according to figures released by his campaign, and has $40.8 million in the bank, more than any of the active Democratic candidates have reported so far.

The Republican National Committee, which will be supporting Trump’s bid, raised an additional $45.8 million in the first quarter, the most it’s raised in a non-election year. Combined, the party and Trump’s committees have $82 million in the bank, an unprecedented war chest this early in a presidential election contest.

The $75.8 million Trump’s committees and the RNC raised in the first quarter tops the $67.5 million that eight Democratic candidates have voluntarily reported, though the Democratic National Committee and several candidates who raised money in the first quarter have yet to release totals.

Candidates must report first-quarter fundraising and spending to the Federal Election Commission by the end of Monday…

Never-Trumper Update: Smarmy RINO Douchebag To Challenge Trump In GOP Primary – PJ Media
.

.
On Monday afternoon, former Gov. Bill Weld (R-Mass.) announced his candidacy for the 2020 Republican presidential nomination. In 2016, he ran for vice president on the Libertarian ticket with former Gov. Gary Johnson (R-N.M.). In that race, Weld infamously told voters to pull the lever for Democrat Hillary Clinton.

“I’m here vouching for Mrs. Clinton,” Weld told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow days before Trump was elected. He claimed not to be endorsing Clinton, since he was running against her, but the way Weld warned about Trump and the way he said he vouched for Clinton certainly sent a clear message about whom he’d rather see in the White House.

He also endorsed Barack Obama in 2008, has long supported abortion, and was named U.S. Ambassador to Mexico by President Bill Clinton…

Illegal Alien Accused Of Raping 7-Year-Old Girl In Virginia – Big League Politics

An El Salvadoran illegal alien living in Virginia was arrested late last week for raping a seven-year-old child.

“On Thursday, Culpeper Sheriff’s Detectives arrested Oscar Ramirez, 33, of Culpeper, for the rape of a seven-year-old girl, which reportedly occurred between April 6 and 7,” according to WTVR.

Ramirez was charged with a single count of Rape of a Child younger than 13. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) placed a detainer on him for failing to appear at an immigration hearing in 2006. America’s illegal immigration process often allows for illegal aliens caught crossing the border to be set free while they await hearings in immigration courts.

“He will be deported to his home country of El Salvador after his legal proceedings in Culpeper are completed and any potential prison sentence has been served,” the report said.

Ramirez’s arrest comes amid tension in Washington, D.C. over border security…

The famed Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, France was engulfed in flames on Monday leading to the collapse of the structure’s main spire. The intense flames leaped out from two of its bell towers minutes before the spire collapsed, and later spread to one of the cathedral’s iconic rectangular towers.

A church spokesman told French media that all of Notre Dame Cathedral’s frame is burning after the spire collapsed. “Everything is burning, nothing will remain from the frame,” spokesman Andre Finot said.

Dramatic video showed black smoke billowing from the top of the cathedral as firefighters furiously worked to contain the flames…

The Vigilante From South Bend – David Horowitz

Pete Buttigieg is the latest star to emerge from Democrats’ 2020 pack, which is no surprise since he exhibits all the tropes we have come to associate with this party in the era of its Trump derangement.

On the evidence just of his attacks on Vice President Mike Pence, Buttigieg is a shameless liar, a calculating character assassin and an anti-religious/anti-free speech bigot, motivated by a virulent hatred of his political opponents, especially those who have been good to him like Pence.

Buttigieg’s chosen target is one of the most decent human beings in politics, who was supportive of Buttegieg both before he revealed he was gay and after.

Indeed, when Buttigieg made his public announcement, Pence, then governor of Indiana went out of his way to praise his achievements as mayor – a bit of political hyperbole since Buttigieg’s city, South Bend, is a violence-ridden mess. Yet, even after Buttigieg’s outrageous attacks, Pence has not had an unkind word to say about him…

The Conservatives are facing an exodus as up to 40 EU election candidates are believed to be defecting to the Brexit Party.

Former Ukip leader Nigel Farage has reportedly received word from 26 MPs that privately said they will vote for his new group. And even more are said to be ditching their Tory MEP campaigns in favour of standing for the Brexit Party.

Mr Farage told the paper: ‘After the last three years, many Conservative MPs, councillors and, indeed members, are asking what is the point of their party.’

Dozens More Suspected Graves Found Near Notorious Florida Reform School For Boys – BBC

Excavators have found up to another 27 suspected graves near the grounds of a notorious reform school in Florida. Workers hired to clear up a fuel storage site detected new “anomalies” buried near the state-run Dozier School for Boys, officials said.

The school became infamous for the alleged abuse and murder of children over its 111-year history. It was one of the largest institutions for young offenders in the US, eventually closing in 2011.

If confirmed, the latest finds would bring the total number of known burials on the campus to 82 – although researchers believe more than 100 children could have died at Dozier School.

Contractor New South Associates was preparing to clean up pollution in Marianna, Florida, using ground-penetrating radar in March when workers found what could be more burial sites near the school. Their report, obtained by Florida newspaper the Tampa Bay Times, said the possible graves did not follow any pattern…

Stratolaunch, World’s Largest Aircraft By Wingspan, Makes Historic First Flight – Fox News
.

.
The world’s largest aircraft by wingspan completed a successful first flight over California’s Mojave Desert on Saturday. The gigantic, six-engine aircraft known as Stratolaunch has a 385-foot wingspan, weighs about 500,000 pounds and is the dream of late Microsoft co-founder Paul G. Allen. It’s so large that it needs two cockpits and it’s powered by six Boeing 747 engines.

Stratolaunch Systems Corp. Chief Executive Jean Floyd said Saturday the aircraft made a “spectacular” landing that was on the mark. Stratolaunch, which was founded by Allen, is vying to be a contender in the market for air-launching small satellites. He died in October.

“It was an emotional moment for me, to personally watch this majestic bird take flight, to see Paul Allen’s dream come to life in front of my very eyes,” Floyd told a teleconference briefing…

After Electing Democrat DA, Dallas Decides To Stop Prosecuting Certain Criminal Acts – Big League Politics

Dallas County District Attorney John Creuzot is firmly dedicated to ending “mass incarceration” so much so, in fact, that the Democrat is going to let many criminal offenders back onto the streets.

Creuzot announced on Thursday that his office will be letting criminals off the hook if they commit offenses such as low-level drug possession, theft, and criminal trespass. Law enforcement will be more focused on promoting social justice than protecting property rights under Creuzot’s plan.

He will also be targeting the bail bonds system and reducing probation sentences. Creuzot does not want criminals to “sit in jail not because they pose an identifiable danger to the community, but because they cannot pay their fee to go home” so they will be let out on the streets instead.

Marijuana offenders will be among the beneficiaries of the new weak-on-crime approach of the Dallas County criminal justice system…

Julian Assange Hires Crack Legal Team From Britain And U.S., Including Birmingham Six Barrister, To Battle Extradition – Daily Mail

Julian Assange has reportedly hired a crack team of expensive lawyers as he prepares to fight extradition to the U.S. tooth and nail.

Wikileaks will apparently pump money into their founder’s upcoming legal battle to fork out hundreds of thousands of pounds for renowned barristers, including Gareth Peirce who represented the Birmingham Six and the Guildford Four.

Assange was bundled out of the Ecuadorian embassy and hauled before Westminster Magistrate’s on Thursday where he was found guilty of failing to surrender to the court. He could face up to 12 months in a UK prison when he is sentenced at Southwark Crown Court, but is wanted in the U.S. for hacking charges and in Sweden for sexual assault offences…

College Students Melt All The Way Down Into Raving Loons Over Vice President Pence Honoring Their Commencement – Right Scoop

“The state of college education today is completely ridiculous. Kids are taking out a quarter million in loans to attend woke warzones where roaming mobs will put them in a hospital if they don’t parrot talking points from the communist manifesto.” – @ComfortablySmug

Whether satirical or overblown, the tweet quoted above says something true about the state of higher education. Have kids? Yeah you might wanna send them to a trade school. Or the army. Because what they get from the enormous sums you’ll shell out and go in debt for mostly amounts to brain damage.

You already know about the crazed lunatics who attack conservative speakers (and fellow students) on campuses across the country. Liberals like to sneer at the suggestion these things happen, while simultaneously going on TV and social media every single day to condone and encourage it.

CNN anchors and pundits were all over the place explaining that wearing a MAGA hat is asking for it…

Leftist Insanity Update: Georgetown Students Vote For Slavery Reparations Tuition Hike – Washington Times

Georgetown University students overwhelmingly voted this week for a tuition hike, which would pay reparations to the descendants of slaves.

Over 66 percent of students who voted Thursday on a Georgetown University Student Association referendum favored a $27.20 semester fee to make amends for slaves owned by Jesuits in the 1830s. A final decision on the nonbinding resolution rests with the university’s leadership.

“The results of the referendum are as follows: 66.08% for yes (2541 votes), 33.92% for no (1304 votes). This means that the referendum passes,” GUSA Elections tweeted Thursday.

Todd Olson, vice president for student affairs, said in a statement that students were adopting one of many ways to respond to “legacies of slavery.”…

Michigan Farmer Fights Back Against East Lansing Leftists For Violating His Religious Freedom – Washington Free Beacon

A Michigan farmer is challenging city officials after he was banned from a farmer’s market following a Facebook post in which he affirmed the Catholic Church’s teachings on marriage.

Steve Tennes, who runs Country Mill Farms, is challenging the city of East Lansing and seeking a permanent order in federal court on Friday that would allow him to continue participating at the city’s farmer’s market, according to the Alliance Defending Freedom.

City officials targeted Tennes after seeing a Facebook post from 2016, in which he responded to a question about whether his family would use Country Mill Farms to host a same-sex wedding. Steve said they would not host a same-sex wedding because his family believes marriage is between one man and one woman, however he and his family always served everyone at their farm and at the market.

“Starting in August 2010, our family farm had taken our organic apples, peaches, and blueberries 22 miles away from our farm into the city of East Lansing where we had served everyone of all backgrounds for seven years,” Tennes told the Washington Free Beacon…

All The Pigs In Europe Can’t Make Up For China’s Hog Apocalypse – Bloomberg

Visitors aren’t welcome at Zhao Baojiang’s pigsty. Those granted access to his fortress-like farm outside Beijing must park a half-mile away, change into shoes he provides, and wear disposable overalls to prevent introducing African swine fever virus.

Zhao’s fastidiousness about infection control, combined with a towering brick wall protecting his property, probably helped save his 500-hog herd from the deadly contagion that’s ravaged pig farms across China since August. Empty barns around his village of Xi Fengwu, about 60 kilometers (37 miles) south of the national capital, indicate few of Zhao’s neighbors were as fortunate.

The infectious disease has killed tens of thousands of pigs in China, which raises about half the world’s hogs…

Three Naked Women Stand Outside Rest Stop To ‘Air Dry’, Trooper Shows Up, Then Things Get Really Out Of Control – Daily Wire

What started off with three women’s poor decision to “air dry” after taking a shower at a rest stop quickly escalated into a multi-phase car chase, threats against a trooper with a baseball bat, an attempt to run over an officer, all three women getting tased, and drug and alcohol charges.

In a wild media alert issued by the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) on Wednesday, Public Affairs Officer Sgt. Steve Gaskins details a rest stop incident that quickly devolved from bizarre to potentially deadly.

“On Wednesday April 10, 2019, at approximately 11:15 AM, FHP units in Pasco county were dispatched to a suspicious persons call at the northbound I-75 rest area, south of State Road 54,” the alert reads. “Trooper Danielle Poulin arrived on the scene and observed three black females naked, who stated that they had showered and were ‘air drying.'”

President Trump Eliminating Major Government Agency – Daily Caller

The White House is moving to dissolve the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) and reorganize the agency’s responsibilities into three existing departments in order to “drive what is needed to support the mission in all of government.”

“When we really look at the need for government overall, and we looked at the [OPM’s] design to support those needs, there was a fundamental structural misalignment between the challenges of today around our workforce and what OPM was conditioned to do,” Margaret Weichert, deputy director for management at the Office of Management and Budget and acting OPM director, told The Daily Caller News Foundation on Thursday.
