Obama In Kenya: “Three Years Ago, I Visited Kenya As The First Sitting American President To Come From Kenya” – American Mirror
.

.
Barack Obama slipped during a recent trip to Kenya and said he was the “first American president” to come from the country. Recalling a visit to the country when he was president, Obama said, “Three years ago, I visited Kenya as the first sitting American president to come from Kenya.”

In 2017, Obama’s half-brother,Malik Obama, tweeted image of what appears to be Barack’s birth certificate. Except it’s not from Hawaii, but rather Kenya.

The document is from the “Coast Province General Hospital” in Mombasa, British Protectorate of Kenya, and is for Barack Hussein Obama II, who was born on the “4th day of August, 1961.”…

Federal Judge Slams New York AG For Prosecuting Anti-Abortion Activists – Law & Crime

Brooklyn-based anti-abortion protestors just notched a significant victory against the State of New York.

On Friday night, U.S. District Judge Carol Bagley Amon denied the New York State Attorney General’s request for a preliminary injunction against a group of ten anti-abortion activists and members of Brooklyn’s Church at the Rock.

Since 2012, various activists from the church have congregated outside the Choices Women’s Medical Center located in nearby Jamaica, Queens. There, on some Saturday mornings, those activists have clashed with volunteer clinic escorts.

The court order describes the situation like this:

Starting before Choices opens at 7:00 a.m., the anti-abortion protestors set up along the sidewalk leading to the Clinic entrance and proceed to engage in a variety of activities. Some hold large signs that purport to show images of aborted fetuses…

The National Rifle Association, Second Amendment Foundation and two Seattle residents are suing the city over its new gun-safety law. The lawsuit filed Friday in King County Superior Court says that the safe storage requirement violates Washington state law, which prevents cities from regulating guns, the Seattle Times reported.

Police Arrest Antifa Member With Cache Of Bomb-Making Materials, Guns, Manifesto – Breitbart

Police in South Dakota arrested a self-proclaimed member of the violent leftist group Antifa who had a “concerning” cache of firearms, bomb-making materials, and an Antifa manifesto in his possession.

Police in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, originally arrested Mark Christopher Einerwold, 43, on July 17 on charges of burglary, but upon serving a warrant at his home, officers discovered “concerning” evidence that he may have been planning something bigger, KELO reported.

In his Blaine Avenue home, investigators discovered bomb-making materials along with illegal firearms and accessories. The materials included ammonium nitrate and aluminum powder, a sawed-off shotgun, and a homemade rifle silencer, police said…

Newly Released Documents Contradict Peter Strzok’s Sworn Testimony That He Had Nothing To Do With Carter Page FISA Warrant – Gateway Pundit

Obama’s Deep State FBI and DOJ obtained a FISA warrant on Carter Page in October of 2016 and three subsequent renewals in order to spy on Trump’s campaign and transition team. Comey, Rosenstein, McCabe and Sally Yates all signed the FISA applications even though Hillary’s fraudulent Russia dossier was used as a pretext to obtain the warrants.

Bernie And The Bolsheviks – Matthew Vadum

While the media-driven leftist hysteria about President Trump’s non-existent electoral collusion with Russia continues to build, the Left continues to ignore the longstanding collaboration of its biggest star with the Communists who used to rule Russia.

That star, of course, is 76-year-old Bernie Sanders, the so-called democratic socialist U.S. senator from Vermont whom the Hillary Clinton-controlled Democratic National Committee quite literally robbed of the Democrats’ 2016 presidential nomination.

The Trump-Russia electoral collusion conspiracy theory and the phony Russian “piss-gate” dossier compiled on the orders of the Clinton campaign, have always seemed farfetched. Similarly, the claim that “Russia ‘hacked’ the American election – to the extent that it changed the outcome – never made any sense,” Michael Walsh has observed.

This “fever dream” was “cooked up by Sore Loser Hillary and her malignant consigliere, John Podesta…

Leftist Trudeau Government Admits It Has “Lost Track” Of 50,000 Islamic Refugees – Your News Wire

Justin Trudeau’s Canadian government have “lost track” of at least 50,000 Islamic refugees and are desperate to cover up the consequences of allowing unchecked immigration into Canada, according to an immigration expert.

Douglas Murray, author of “The Strange Death of Europe”, says Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is very good at “virtue signaling” and PR stunts, but has failed to keep track of the tens of thousands of Syrian refugees that he has brought into the country.

Speaking to “Fox & Friends” on Friday, Douglas Murray said that the Trudeau government is stonewalling reporters who are asking for a status update on the Syrian refugees, who starting entering Canada shortly after Trudeau became prime minister and he infamously used Twitter to invite any and all refugees to enter Canada.

Liberal 9th Circuit Surprises With Pro-2nd Amendment Decision Blocking California Ammo Ban – Fox News

Second Amendment activists were given a surprise boost this week when the liberal Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals backed a lower court’s decision to suspend California’s ban on the possession of large magazines.

Activists, supported by the National Rifle Association, have argued that the state’s ban on ownership of magazines holding 10 bullets or more is unconstitutional. They won a preliminary injunction by a San Diego district court last year, and a three-judge panel on the Ninth Circuit backed that injunction Tuesday.

The court found that the district court did not abuse its discretion in granting the injunction or by concluding that magazines fall within the scope of the Second Amendment.

“The district court did not abuse its discretion by applying the incorrect level of scrutiny,” the judges also found. “The district court concluded that a ban on ammunition magazines is not a presumptively lawful regulation and that the prohibition did not have a ‘historical pedigree.'”…

Trump-Hating USA Today Columnist Posts Demented Comments About Ex-Campaign Staffer’s Daughters, Is Immediately Fired – BizPac Review

A bitter, intensely personal online exchange between former Trump campaign aide Michael Caputo and Cheri Jacobus, the now former USA Today columnist, took an ugly turn when the Trump critic attacked Caputo’s daughters, suggesting that they be used at “parties” by convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.

Epstein, of course, being the disgraced financier and Bill Clinton mega-donor who was convicted in 2008 of soliciting sex from an underage girl.

Jacobus appeared to start the brouhaha when she criticized Caputo in a tweet, and he responded with a series of tweets that used the hashtag #BitterChildlessAlone to mock her.

But she crossed all lines of decency when she brought his young daughters into the fray.

Trump Administration To Provide Ukraine With Additional $200 Million To Help Fight Russians – The Hill

The U.S. is planning to send an additional $200 million defense funds to the government of Ukraine amid its ongoing struggle with pro-Russian separatists.

The Defense Department announced in a press release Friday that the decision from the Trump administration “reaffirms the long-standing defense relationship between the United States and Ukraine,” while bringing the total aid provided to Ukraine since the annexation of Crimea in 2014 up to $1 billion.

“The added funds will provide equipment to support ongoing training programs and operational needs, including capabilities to enhance Ukraine’s command and control, situational awareness systems, secure communications, military mobility, night vision, and military medical treatment,” the statement reads.

Citing a recently-passed Ukrainian law boosting cybersecurity coordination between the country and NATO, the Pentagon noted that the new reforms would improve Ukraine’s ability to defend against future territorial aggression, a clear reference to Russia.

Putin’s Decision To Raise Retirement Age Sinks Approval Rating, Triggers Nationwide Protests – Washington Times

Russian President Vladimir Putin’s approval ratings have survived reports of high-level corruption and falling living standards in recent years, but they are now falling quickly because of a government plan to raise the national retirement age.

Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev announced last month that the state pension age would rise gradually beginning next year – from 55 to 63 for women and from 60 to 65 for men. The increase marks the first change to retirement age norms, which Soviet authorities established in the 1930s. The announcement triggered anger and nationwide protests that appear likely to grow.

Nearly 60 percent of Russian men die before age 65, according to statistics. Although average Russian women can expect to live to 73, many say their employment opportunities are limited once they reach middle age.

“A significant portion of Russian citizens will not survive to retirement,” said a statement by the Confederation of Labor of Russia…

NFL Freezes Anthem Protest Policy Pending Negotiations With Players Union – Breitbart

GOP Lawmakers Grill Social Media Giants Over Censorship Of Conservatives – Daily Caller

Federal Agents Say Florida Man Posed As Housewife To Trick Men Into Sex Acts For Porn Site – Law & Crime

House GOP Pins 167 Democrats With ‘Abolish ICE’ Vote – Breitbart

Splitting Up California: State Supreme Court Takes Initiative Off November Ballot – San Francisco Chronicle

The state Supreme Court decided Wednesday that California will remain intact geographically, at least for now, while it decides whether the voters can consider a proposal to divide the Golden State into three new states.

The three-state initiative, Proposition 9, had gathered enough signatures to qualify for the November ballot. Nine days after opponents filed suit, the court issued a unanimous order removing the measure from the ballot and ordering further legal arguments on whether it should be placed on another ballot in 2020 or struck down altogether.

The court said it usually allows ballot measures to go to the voters before considering constitutional challenges. But in this case, the six justices said, “significant questions regarding the proposition’s validity” and the “potential harm” of allowing a public vote before those questions are resolved “outweighs the potential harm in delaying the proposition to a future election.”…

Sean Duffy (R., Wis.), accused top officials at the FBI and DOJ of “putting all their chips on the Republicans losing the House” so that their Democratic allies can “shut down” the longstanding Intelligence Committee probe, which has unearthed information disputing claims of collusion in recent months…

Democrat Hellhole Update: San Francisco Begins Registering Illegal Aliens To Vote – Daily Wire

The Department of Elections in San Francisco on Monday issued voter registration for illegal aliens to allow them to vote for members of the city’s Board of Education in the Nov. 6 election.

Becoming California’s first city to allow non-American citizens to vote in local elections, Supervisor Norman Yee said, “We want to give immigrants the right to vote.”

[For the record, “immigrants” are people who come to America through the legal process, while “illegal aliens” sneak into the country.]

In order to vote, the illegal aliens must live in the city, be at least 18 years old and be the “parents, legal guardians or caregivers of children under the age of 19 who also reside in San Francisco,” ABC-7 reported.

“As a parent myself and a former member of the SF Board of Education it is critical that the voices of all parents are at the table particularly those that have historically been denied a voice in the process,” said Supervisor Sandra Lee Fewer who represents District 1…

John Brennan Misses Communist Russia – George Neumayr

John Brennan’s anti-Trump tweets grow more and more maniacal. His latest tweet holds that Donald Trump’s Russian diplomacy in Helsinki “rises to & exceeds the threshold of ‘high crimes & misdemeanors.’ It was nothing short of treasonous.”

That tells people all they need to know about the unseriousness of the left’s impeachment drive, not to mention exposing once again the demented malice behind the Obama administration’s spying on the Trump campaign.

The unhinged criticism is also hilariously rich, given that John Brennan, who supported the Soviet-controlled American Communist Party, meets the textbook definition of a useful idiot for the Russians…

Democrat Hellhole Update: Suspected California ‘Rideshare Rapist’ Is An Illegal Alien – Washington Times

Federal immigration authorities say a suspected serial rapist charged with posing as a Northern California ride-hailing driver to prey on his victims was living in the country illegally.

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency said Tuesday it plans to deport Orlando Vilchez Lazo to his native Peru if he’s released from custody.

The 36-year-old was arrested last week on multiple allegations, including four counts of felony rape. He is jailed in lieu of $4.2 million in bail and is scheduled to appear in court Tuesday.

ICE asked the San Francisco Sheriff’s Department to detain Lazo for federal immigration custody if he’s ordered released from jail.

But officials believe the request will be ignored because San Francisco’s so-called sanctuary city policy bars local authorities from cooperating with most deportation efforts…

After Massive Electoral Defeat, Head Of Mexico’s Ruling Party Resigns – Daily Wire

The head of the Mexican Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI), the ruling party for the last seven decades, has resigned following a massive electoral defeat in the July 1 election.

Public School Enrollment Plummeting In North Carolina Thanks To School Choice – College Fix

Thank Republican lawmakers. If you want to see how parents act when the government stops forcing an educational monopoly on them, look to North Carolina. Nearly 20 percent of students are attending something other than a traditional public school, where attendance is falling “rapidly,” according to The News & Observer.

The rush toward charter, private and even home schools is largely due to the Republican takeover of the Legislature in 2010.

Lawmakers have since removed the 100-school cap on charter schools (it’s up to 185 as of this fall), created a $4,200 voucher for low-income families and two programs for special-needs kids to get out of public schools (where they are often treated poorly), and even made it easier for non-parent adults to teach homeschoolers.

ICE Arrests 37 Illegal Aliens In Latest Sweep; Slams New Jersey County For Being A ‘Sanctuary’ – Breaking 911

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) Newark Field Office arrested 37 individuals during a five-day operation that concluded Friday, as part of the agency’s ongoing public safety efforts.

The operation targeted criminal aliens who were previously incarcerated at the Middlesex County Jail (MCJ), and who were subsequently released to the community by MCJ, without honoring the ICE detainer or advising ICE of their release. The operation also targeted other criminal aliens residing in Middlesex County.

Of those arrested, 16 subjects had been previously released by MCJ without honoring the ICE detainer and 78% had prior criminal convictions or pending criminal charges.

“ERO New Jersey will continue to enforce ICE’s commitment to public safety,” said Ruben Perez, acting Field Office Director of ERO in Newark. “Middlesex county, which aspires to be a ‘sanctuary county’ by protecting criminal aliens, in the process assists criminals in undermining federal law, and creates a dangerous environment in the community…

Ireland To Move All Of Its Oil Reserves Out Of The UK As Brexit Nears – Zero Hedge

Under the plan, seen as one of the most significant Brexit decisions for Ireland so far, Ireland will transfer the nearly 200,000 tons of oil out of British refineries and back into Ireland or other EU member states, as the UK is preparing to leave the European Union bloc.

According to Sunday Independent, the oil would be moved out of the UK “for national security reasons.”

Jeff Bezos Becomes The Richest Man In Modern History, Topping $150 Billion – Bloomberg

Jeff Bezos is the richest person in modern history.

The Amazon.com Inc. founder’s net worth broke $150 billion in New York on Monday morning, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. That’s about $55 billion more than Microsoft Corp. co-founder Bill Gates, the world’s second-richest person.

Bezos, 54, has now topped Gates in inflation-adjusted terms. The $100 billion mark that Gates hit briefly in 1999 at the height of the dot-com boom would be worth about $149 billion in today’s dollars. That makes the Amazon chief executive officer richer than anyone else on earth since at least 1982, when Forbes published its inaugural wealth ranking.

Bezos crossed the threshold just as Amazon prepares to kick off its 36-hour summer sales event, Prime Day. The company’s share price was $1,825.73 at 11:10 a.m. in New York, extending its 2018 gain to 56 percent and giving Bezos a $150.8 billion fortune.

FDA Approves First Drug To Treat Smallpox, In Case Of Terror Attack – Circa

U.S. regulators Friday approved the first treatment for smallpox – a deadly disease that was wiped out four decades ago – in case the virus is used in a terror attack. Smallpox, which is highly contagious, was eradicated worldwide by 1980 after a huge vaccination campaign.

But people born since then haven’t been vaccinated, and small samples of the smallpox virus were saved for research purposes, leaving the possibility it could be used as a biological weapon.

Maker SIGA Technologies of New York has already delivered 2 million treatments that will be stockpiled by the government, which partially paid for the development of the drug, called TPOXX.

To test the drug’s effectiveness, monkeys and rabbits were infected with a similar virus and then given the drug. More than 90 percent survived, the company said. Its safety was tested in several hundred healthy volunteers, who were not infected with smallpox…

Border Protection Says New York Mayor De Blasio Crossed Border Illegally – Chicago Tribune

The mayor’s office flatly denied the allegation.

De Blasio, a fierce critic of the Trump administration’s immigration policies, went to the Texas border with about 20 other mayors from around the country on June 21, the day after President Donald Trump signed an order stopping family separations at the border.

More than 2,300 families were separated as a result of the administration’s zero-tolerance policy, which criminally prosecutes anyone caught crossing illegally. The mayors said Trump had failed to address a humanitarian crisis of his own making.

Deadly parasitic worms from African immigrants have begun invading Europe, causing an explosion of auto-immune diseases, allergies and inflammations. Thanks to the EU’s open border policy, scientists have discovered millions of deadly bacteria, microbes, and fungi in mainland Europe.

Karl Hoffmann, a professor of parasitology at Aberystwyth University, writes in The Independent:

Not so long ago, human diseases caused by parasitic worms were thought to be confined to resource poor communities throughout Africa, Asia and South America. But in this age of global travel and changing climate, parasitic worms are slowly but surely moving into parts of Europe and North America…

Judge Charged After Dropping Allegedly Loaded Gun In Courthouse – Law & Crime

A long-serving judge in Chicago was charged with a misdemeanor after he dropped an apparently loaded pistol in the lobby of the city’s main criminal courthouse, according to the Cook County Sheriff’s Office.

Judge Joseph Claps was charged Friday with a misdemeanor count of carrying a concealed weapon in a prohibited area. Claps previously oversaw felony criminal cases at the Leighton Criminal Court Building where the gun-dropping incident occurred. He’s since been reassigned to “nonjudicial duties” pending the outcome of a Wednesday meeting of the court’s executive committee.

In surveillance footage of the incident, Judge Claps can be seen walking through the lobby as a small, silver pistols tumbles to the floor. Claps looks down, then bends down, to pick up the gun without incident as two people pass by on his left side.

In a second video released by the CCSO, Claps can be seen removing an object from his pants pocket and then placing it underneath his arm…

Fox Raises Sky Offer To $32.5 Billion In Bidding War With Comcast – The Hill

Rupert Murdoch’s 21st Century Fox has increased its offer for the Britain-based Sky television service to $32.5 billion amid the company’s bidding war with Comcast.

The Associated Press reported that Fox, which already has a 39 percent stake in Sky, raised its offer to 14 pounds per share ($18.58), more than Comcast’s latest offer but not equivalent to the value Sky was trading at on Wednesday.

A top Sky shareholder told Reuters that Comcast is expected to respond with a higher offer for the company.

Fox has been attempting to purchase Sky since December 2016, and has increased its offer by more than 30 percent since then, according to the AP.

Fox has faced significant hurdles in attempting to purchase the service: British regulators recommended earlier this year the government block a merger with Sky over fears the Murdoch family trust would have “too much control” over news in the country…

Trump Is Cutting Off Big Labor From Skimming Americans’ Medicaid Payments, And Unions Are Furious – Daily Caller

The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) is blistering at a proposed regulation that would prevent the union from siphoning fees from American workers’ Medicaid payments.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services announced a proposed rule Tuesday that would require Medicaid payments to go directly to healthcare workers, ending a 2014 Obama-era rule that let third parties, such as unions and insurance companies, skim off a share of the paycheck before the worker saw any of it.

The SEIU, one of the largest public-sector unions in the U.S., referred to the proposed rule “as part of the [Trump] administration’s broad, coordinated attack against working people.”

“The proposed rule targets these home care workers and is designed to stop them from contributing their own wages to support their union in the same way that teachers, police and firefighters do,” the SEIU said in a statement…

Trump’s ‘America First’ Economy Secures 10-Year Employment High For Manufacturing Workers – Breitbart

More American manufacturing workers are employed today than at any time in the last ten years as President Trump’s ‘America First’ economy seeks to protect U.S. industry and jobs with tariffs, less immigration, and tax relief.

In June 2018, Trump’s booming economy delivered an additional 36,000 manufacturing jobs for American workers, many of whom have had their livelihoods destroyed by job-killing free trade deals like NAFTA and KORUS.

Specifically, in the metals manufacturing industry, Trump’s tariffs on imported steel, aluminum, and Chinese electronics seems to have boosted U.S. job growth – with 7,000 new jobs in manufacturing fabricated metal products, 5,000 new jobs in manufacturing computer and electronic products, and 3,000 new jobs in manufacturing primary metals…

GOP Bill Would Make First-Time Illegal Border Crossing A Felony, Send Sanctuary City Funds To ICE – Washngton Examiner

Rep. Diane Black, R-Tenn., introduced legislation Tuesday that would reclassify a first-time illegal entry at the border as a felony instead of a misdemeanor.

Her Zero Tolerance for Illegal Entry Act would change the punishment for those apprehended illegally entering the U.S. for the first time to one year and one day in prison, which therefore makes it a felony. Today, the misdemeanor offense comes with jail term of up to six months.

The Tennessee lawmaker said she is proposing the change because she believes it would prevent would-be illegal entrants from coming to the U.S., and encourage migrants to apply for asylum at ports of entry instead of using smugglers to travel to the U.S.-Mexico border then cross between ports.

“What this bill does is it sets up a huge disincentive,” she told the Washington Examiner. “There is already a process set up and they should be using what the process is…

Lawyers for 77-year-old Charles M. Hallinan argued that the prison term might as well be a “death sentence” given his age and declining health, however District Judge Eduardo Robreno gave no quarter as he rendered his verdict after a jury convicted him of 17 counts, including racketeering, international money laundering and fraud.

“It would be a miscarriage of justice to impose a sentence that would not reflect the seriousness of this case,” Robreno said. “The sentence here should send a message that criminal conduct like [this] will not pay.”

Venezuela Hyperinflation Hits 46,305%: Food Prices Soar 183% In One Month – Zero Hedge

Leftist Idiocy Update: California Millionaires Flee State After Tax Hike – Zero Hedge

California lost an estimated 138 high income individuals due to the passage of the Proposition 30 – a tax hike pushed by Gov. Jerry Brown (D) and approved by voters in 2012, according to new research from Stanford University and members of the California Franchise Tax Board.

The measure raised taxes on the state’s highest earners by 8% – increasing it one percentage point to 13.3%, leaving California top-earners with the highest state income tax rate in the country.

It also hiked the tax rate on income between $300,000 and $500,000 by 2%, while raising the tax rate on income over $500,000 by 3%.

Using California Franchise Tax Board data, the study led by Charles Varner, associate director of the Stanford Center on Poverty and Inequality, examined taxpayers who were and were not affected by the Prop. 30 tax hike, and found that in the two years before the increase was imposed (2011 and 2012) net in-migration for both groups “was positive and roughly consistent.”…

Socialist Darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Called For Tax Cuts When She Was Running A Business, Now Wants To Raise Taxes To Fund Her Radical Agenda – Daily Caller
.

.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the upstart Democratic Socialist who shocked the political world in the June primary when she defeated 10-term incumbent Rep. Joseph Crowley of New York, once advocated for tax cuts when she was running a business of her own, uncovered news reports from 2012 reveal.

Ocasio-Cortez, 28, is a dues-paying member of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), an organization that calls for the abolishment of capitalism and argues that “private corporate property is not only wrong, but also nonsensical.”

Her campaign platform calls for instituting a single-payer health care system, a federal jobs guarantee and housing as a human right, radical and expensive policies she says will be funded through raising taxes on corporations and high-income Americans…

Memos Detail FBI’s ‘Hurry The F Up Pressure’ To Probe Trump Campaign – The Hill

Multiple reviews of whether FBI agents’ political bias affected the Russia-Trump collusion case remain in their infancy, but investigators already have unearthed troubling internal communications long withheld from public view.

We already know from FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok’s now-infamous text messages with his fellow agent and reported lover, Lisa Page, that Strzok – the man driving that Russia collusion investigation – disdained Donald Trump and expressed willingness to use his law enforcement powers to “stop” the Republican from becoming president.

The question that lingers, unanswered: Did those sentiments affect official actions?

Memos the FBI is now producing to the Department of Justice (DOJ) inspector general and multiple Senate and House committees offer what sources involved in the production, review or investigation describe to me as “damning” or “troubling” evidence…

The NYPD used a $3 million counterterrorism plane to shuttle Mayor Bill de Blasio back and forth from his Canada vacation to the Big Apple for an event Thursday, The Post has learned. Hizzoner, who is in Quebec on a weeklong respite, briefly flew back to the Bronx for a memorial for slain Detective Miosotis Familia.

“NYPD is transporting him in their plane,” de Blasio spokesman Eric Phillips told The Post. “Their plane” is a Cessna 208 Caravan that cost roughly $3 million and was picked up by the department in 2017, sources said.

The high-tech aircraft is outfitted with special sensors that can detect at a distance radioactive material used to make “dirty bombs.”…

The Suffolk County Police Department tweeted a press release late Friday night detailing the arrest of Martin Astrof, 75. According to the release, Astrof threatened to kill supporters of Congressman Lee Zeldin and President Donald Trump at Zeldin’s campaign headquarters in New York.

China Wind Tech Firm Hit With $59 Million Fine For Theft Of U.S. Trade Secrets – Breitbart

A District judge ruled Friday Chinese turbine manufacturer Sinovel Wind Group Co. must pay $59 million in a plot to steal trade secrets from a U.S. rival. In January, a federal court in Wisconsin convicted Sinovel of stealing trade secrets from AMSC and nearly putting it out of business.

“U.S. District Judge James Peterson ordered the Chinese company to pay $1.5 million in fines and $57.5 million in restitution at a sentencing hearing Friday in Madison, Wisconsin, according to the Justice Department. American Superconductor claimed it suffered at least $800 million in losses from Sinovel’s scheme to pilfer its technology,” Bloomberg reports.

The State Of New Jersey Just Signed Its Own Death Warrant – Zero Hedge

You would think New Jersey would have learned its lesson. Two years ago, New Jersey’s richest resident – hedge fund billionaire David Tepper – decided to move himself and his business to Miami Beach.

Tepper, who personally earned more than $6 billion from 2012-2015, was tired of paying New Jersey’s top income-tax rate of 8.97% for the 20 years he lived there, in addition to the country’s highest property taxes, the estate tax and inheritance tax.

By moving to Florida, a state with ZERO income tax, Tepper stood to save hundreds of millions of dollars each year. And, as an added bonus, he’d be living in the Sunshine State.

Anyone with some common sense would have at least acknowledged the possibility that a guy like Tepper would consider moving to save a few hundred million bucks. But New Jersey, content on milking its ultra-wealthy for tax revenue, was caught completely by surprise. And Tepper’s departure left an enormous hole in its budget…

Wisconsin Court Tells University To Reinstate Conservative Professor – Townhall

Political science professor John McAdams is going to be reinstated at Marquette University following a victory at the Wisconsin Supreme Court. He had been suspended by the school for writing a blog post critical of a graduate student.

“The undisputed facts show that the University breached its contract with Dr. McAdams when it suspended him for engaging in activity protected by the contract’s guarantee of academic freedom,” said the opinion written by Justice Daniel Kelly.

The state’s high court ordered Marquette to “immediately reinstate Dr. McAdams with unimpaired rank, tenure, compensation, and benefits.” (Journal Sentinel)

The case started in 2014, when McAdams wrote a post criticizing a female student instructor for trying to shut down a debate about gay marriage. He used it as an example of liberals suppressing free speech. Yet, his post opened the instructor up to threats because he included a link to her personal website and her email address…

Socialist Hellhole Update: Nicaragua’s Daniel Ortega Leads Violent Clampdown Amid Fears Of Coup, Civil War – Washington Times

When Nicaraguan guerrilla leader Daniel Ortega first took power in mid-1979, his admirers included a 17-year-old Caracas high school dropout who celebrated a “newly lit light” in Latin America as he maneuvered his bus around Venezuela’s hilly capital.

Nearly four decades down the road, the driver, Nicolas Maduro, clings to power as his country’s embattled president, and it seems to be the increasingly unpopular Mr. Ortega who is taking cues from his Venezuelan counterpart as he tries to hold on to power.

It has been a stunning comedown for Mr. Ortega, who led the anti-U.S. Sandinista movement in the Reagan era and seemed so secure in power two years ago that he engineered the election of his wife as vice president in a landslide electoral win.

All that has changed since an outbreak of popular discontent in April. It is so severe that some warn of a coup and others fear the country could face another civil war. Faced with nationwide protests, Mr. Ortega has led a violent clampdown…

Boom! The American Economy Added 213,000 Jobs In June – Breitbart

The U.S. economy added 213,000 jobs in June as American businesses extended their hiring spree, according to a report released Friday by the Labor Department. The unemployment rate rose to 4.0 percent as more Americans entered the workforce.

The U.S. economy has added an average of over 200,000 jobs a month this year, far above the 100,000 that economists believe is required to keep up with the growth of the workforce. Minutes from the last meeting of the Federal Reserve released Thursday revealed that Fed officials believe unemployment is below its long-term sustainable level.

Average hourly earnings rose 2.7 percent year over year, slightly below expectations of a 2.8 percent increase. That is slightly disappointing for workers but also likely to fend off fears that inflation or interest rates will rise faster than expected.

The unemployment rate rose because more workers entered the workforce. The labor force participation rate rose 0.2 percentage points to 62.9 percent…

Rap Sheet: 70 Acts Of Media-Approved Violence And Harassment Against Trump Supporters – Breitbart

When not calling Trump supporters “Nazis” as a means to dehumanize us, the establishment media like to whine about the lack of civility in American politics, even as they cover up, ignore, downplay, or straight-up approve of the wave of violence and public harassment we are seeing against supporters of President Trump.

It is open season on Trump supporters, and the media is only fomenting, encouraging, excusing, and hoping for more. The media are now openly calling Trump supporters “Nazis” and are blaming Trump for a mass murder he had nothing to do with.

This, of course, is a form of harassment because it incites and justifies mob violence.

Here is the list, so far, and remember that if any one of these things happened to a Democrat, the media would use the story to blot out the sun for weeks. But what we have when it comes to Trump supporters is a media eager to normalize harassment and violence. This list will be updated as needed…

Massachusetts Governor Signs Bill Allowing Gun Confiscation Without Due Process – Keep And Bear

While the left continues to bully and bluster their way through the court of public opinion, stomping about like a petulant, unattended child, a handful of nefarious narratives are playing out around the nation.

We have pundits and politicians practically tripping over one another in order to be the first to exploit these miniature corpses.

It’s a horrifying analogy, but a necessary one.

They have used this visceral, guttural reaction to tragedy to guilt the opposition into conceding on the second most important thing that our Founding Fathers guaranteed us: The right to bear arms.

Major Medical Convention Abandons San Francisco Citing Open Drug Use And Mental Illness On The Streets – Hot Air

Tourism is big business in San Francisco, bringing in $9 billion dollars a year to the city’s businesses.

The Nicaraguan regime’s deadly ongoing crackdown on protesters discontent with the policies of the ruling government of the communist Sandinista dictator Daniel Ortega has already left over 200 people dead since demonstrations erupted in April.

Ortega’s repression has reportedly killed more people (over 220) than his counterpart Nicolás Maduro’s in last year’s brutal repression of protesters in Venezuela, not counting those who died of starvation, lack of medical care, or lack of access to water.

Seattle Passes Citywide Law Based Largely On The Research Of A 9-Year-Old Boy – Washington Examiner

Seattle has made it official: It is now the first major U.S. city to ban plastic drinking straws. As it turns out, the law, which includes a fine of $250 for all violators, is based largely on the unofficial research of a nine-year-old boy.

Probably not the best basis for sound legislation, but what do I know?

The ban, which went into effect Sunday, is an “environmentally friendly move that leaders hope will spark a nationwide conversation about small, everyday changes that people can make to protect the planet.” Or so says the Washington Post.

The paper adds: “Now customers at grocery stores, restaurants, food trucks, even institutional cafeterias have to find another way to get liquid into their mouths. Compostable paper and plastic straws are allowed under the ban.”

The Post notes that the ban carries with it a $250 fine, but stresses that the law is not so much about punitive measures as it’s about “raising awareness.”…

Ridership has decreased in recent years with 14,000 fewer weekly trips in 2018 opposed to 2017 and 27,000 fewer weekly trips in 2016 compared to 2017.

A member on the City Council claimed that taking Uber is exciting and claimed “no one will notice” because “they have no idea what they are going to pay anyway.”

The D.C. Metro is known for its constant delays, malfunctions, and fires. There is even a website, Is Metro On Fire, to prepare riders for the infernos they may encounter. The Metro has been under constant repair and has shut down large parts of the tracks for maintenance under SafeTrack while also increasing prices…

Thai Soccer Team Found Alive After 10 Days Lost In Caves – USA Today

A Thai youth soccer team and its coach were found alive Monday in a vast, flooded cave complex where they disappeared more than a week ago, and a photo taken by rescuers showed the smiling faces of several survivors.

Video released early Tuesday by the Thai navy showed the boys in their soccer uniforms sitting on a dry area inside the cave above the water as a spotlight, apparently from a rescuer, illuminated their faces.

Chiang Rai provincial Gov. Narongsak Osatanakorn said the 13 were in the process of being rescued, but he cautioned that they were not out of danger yet.

“We found them safe. But the operation isn’t over,” he said in comments broadcast nationwide, referring to the complicated process of extricating them.

It was not immediately clear when the group would be removed from the cave. Narongsak said the rescue was underway and conditions of the players were being evaluated…

Socialist Bernie Sanders Suddenly Not Leftist Enough For Many Democrats Because He’s Hesitant To Abolish ICE – Breitbart
.

.
Democratic socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is no longer left enough for some Democrats, because he has been reluctant to join calls to abolish U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

That’s according to the New Republic, once a reliable center-left organ. Writer Sarah Jones has declared that Sanders is “undermining his position as the nation’s most prominent left-wing politician” by suggesting that ICE should be reformed, rather than endorsing the total elimination of border enforcement.

Jones writes:

Sanders could be a source of consistent, left-wing pressure on party leadership, whether or not he runs in 2020…

Rudy Giuliani Tells Exiles Trump Will Bring Down Iranian Regime – Bloomberg

The collapse of Iran’s Islamic regime “is around the corner,” and the U.S. will keep increasing sanctions until it happens, President Donald Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani told an exiled Iranian opposition group.

The former New York mayor added at an event near Paris that he was speaking “as a private American citizen,” not on behalf of the Trump administration. Giuliani isn’t known to have inside knowledge of U.S. foreign-policy plans.

Speaking to the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq, or People’s Mujahedeen of Iran, a group that for years was on the U.S.’s terrorism list, Giuliani said European nations and former President Barack Obama had appeased the Islamic regime and said “Trump doesn’t turn his back on freedom fighters.”

“This government is about to collapse, and this is the time to turn on the pressure,” Giuliani told a crowd of thousands of flag-waving MEK followers…

Maxine Waters (D-CA) is now attacking establishment Democrats after they denounced her calls to form into mobs and attack Trump officials – blasting Senate and House Minority Leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi after they called for civility and debate in the wake of her inflammatory comments.

“Leadership like Chuck Schumer will do anything that they think is necessary to protect their leadership,” said Waters during a Sunday appearance on MSNBC’s “AM Joy. “What I have to do is not focus on them. I’ve got to keep the focus on the children.”
