3.8 Million Drop Off Food Stamps Under Trump – Breitbart

More than 3.8 million people dropped off food stamps since President Donald Trump’s first full month in office, according to the most recent data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).

The latest USDA data revealed that food stamp participation dropped to 38,577,141 in November 2018, down by 3,899,257 since Trump took office in February 2017, when 42,134,301 Americans received food stamps through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).

Canadian Court Rules Parents Can’t Stop 14-Year-Old From Taking Trans Hormones – The Federalist
.

.
On Wednesday, the Supreme Court of British Columbia, Canada ordered that a 14-year-old girl receive testosterone injections without parental consent. The court also declared that if either of her parents referred to her using female pronouns or addressed her by her birth name, they would be considered guilty of family violence.

As previously reported, Maxine* was encouraged by her school counselor in BC’s Delta School District to identify as a boy while in seventh grade. When Maxine was 13 years old, Dr. Brenden Hursh and his colleagues at BC Children’s Hospital decided that Maxine should begin taking testosterone injections in order to develop a more masculine appearance.

Although Maxine’s mother was ultimately willing to support hormone injections, her father Clark* was concerned about the permanent ramifications of cross-sex hormones…

At least 32 Christians were killed by suspected Fulani extremists in Nigeria Tuesday, sources told a leading Christian persecution monitoring group.

The early-morning attack occurred in the district of Maro in the Kaduna state of north-central Nigeria, according to reports. In addition to the loss of life, homes and at least one church were burned as hundreds were displaced. Some homes even reportedly had sleeping residents inside when they were lit on fire.

.

.
A duck born with a lame left leg can now waddle around thanks to a specially tailored wheelchair.

Domestic duck Merlin was adopted by Goats of Anarchy Sanctuary in Annandale, New Jersey, in November 2018 but was immobile due to a birth defect in his leg.

The sanctuary contacted Walkin’ Pets, a business that designs and fits disabled pets with nifty wheelchairs in Amherst, New Hampshire. Engineers worked to modify the company’s mini wheelchair model, usually used for cats and dogs, to help accommodate Merlin’s physique.

Mark Robinson, who founded Walkin’ Pets in 2001, said: “I was thrilled my company was able to help a handicapped duck, our first one ever.”…

Oklahoma Becomes 15th Permitless Gun-Carry State – Washington Free Beacon
.

.
Oklahoma governor Kevin Stitt (R.) signed a bill into law on Wednesday that eliminated permitting requirements for concealed gun carry inside the state.

The bill, H.B. 2597, would allow anyone who is 21 years old or older to legally carry a concealed firearm so long as they are legally allowed to possess a firearm. It also includes exemptions for anyone between the age of 18 and 21 to be able to carry without a permit so long as they are a member of the military, national guard, or are an honorably discharged veteran.

Oklahoma follows South Dakota as the second state to adopt a permitless carry – often referred to as “constitutional carry” – in 2019…

U.S. Deploys Advanced Anti-Missile System In Israel – Fox News

The American and Israeli militaries say the U.S. has deployed a highly advanced anti-missile defense system in Israel for the first time.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hailed the deployment of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense system, or Thaad, as a testament to the strength of the two countries’ military ties, saying that it makes Israel “even stronger in order to deal with near and distant threats from throughout the Middle East.”

Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus, an Israeli army spokesman, told reporters that Thaad arrived in Israel Monday, and had only been deployed a few times elsewhere.

Israeli officials have repeatedly raised concerns about Iran’s development of long-range missiles as well as the Hezbollah militant group’s vast arsenal of rockets and missiles in Lebanon…

California’s Narco-Socialists Pulled National Guard From Border To Protect Drug Profits – Daniel Greenfield

In California, history, like everything else, repeats itself as farce.

Governor Gavin Newsom came into office announcing that he was cancelling high-speed rail to nowhere, doubling down on high-speed rail to nowhere, and pulling the National Guard from, what he called, Trump’s “manufactured crisis” at the border to deal with the greatest threat to California.

Pot.

The green crosses of marijuana dispensaries in Southern California easily outnumber the white crosses of churches or the red crosses of hospitals. Every other billboard in Los Angeles is either for a marijuana store, a marijuana app or a marijuana cookie.

Wealthy shoppers in pricey areas browse through MedMen, a drug dispensary whose bare wood and glass are designed to make buying drugs feel like shopping for the iPhone X at the Apple Store. (The prices for MedMen’s drugs and the iPhone X might be comparable, but the Apple Store doesn’t have four burly security guards or an ATM at the counter.)…

UPS Stops Deliveries To Muslim ‘No-Go Zone’ – WorldNetDaily

The international delivery company UPS will no long deliver packages in a Muslim-majority neighborhood in Malmo, Sweden, for security reasons.

The Swedish daily newspaper Sydsvenskan reported a customer in the Rosengard district of Malmo received notice from UPS that the company no longer delivers to private addresses there because of the risk of being exposed to robbery or other crimes.

PostNord Sverige, the Swedish postal company, does not deliver packages to another area in Malmo, Seved.

“We must think of our staff in the first place,” said Mathias Krummel of PostNord.

A UPS employee said home delivery in Rosengard was stopped two months ago after drivers were attacked. Even in some areas in Stockholm, UPS has stopped the delivery of parcels, Sydsvenskan reported.

Michael Jackson allegedly ‘married’ one of the boys he is accused of raping in a ceremony held in the King of Pop’s bedroom, according to the new HBO documentary Leaving Neverland. James Safechuck says that he was just 10 years old when he and Jackson, then 30, held a mock ceremony, while also showing off some of the pricey jewelry he received from the singer.

‘I was really into jewelry at that time and he would reward me with jewelry for doing sexual acts to him,’ explains Safechuck in a preview for the documentary. ‘He would say that I need to sell him some so I could earn the gift.’

At this time, Safechuck had known Jackson for a year after meeting in 1987 on the set of a Pepsi commercial…

Feds Seize $2.6 Million In Drugs At Arizona Border – Breitbart

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers seized approximately 360 pounds of methamphetamine and 2,900 of marijuana on Wednesday during two vehicle inspections at the Arizona border with Mexico. The alleged seizures resulted in the arrests of two Mexican nationals and seizure of more than $2.6 million in drugs.

The first seizure took place when CBP officers assigned to the Port of Nogales Mariposa commercial lane contacted a 35-year-old Mexican national driving a tractor-trailer as he attempted to cross into the United States from Nogales, Sonora.

Officers sent the driver to a secondary inspection area where a K-9 detection team began a search of the contents of the trailer. The K-9 alerted to the presence of a scent it has been trained to detect leading CBP officers to discover 190 bundles of marijuana concealed within a shipment of charcoal.

The weight of the marijuana registered at more than 2,900 pounds with a value of approximately $1.5 million…

U.S., China In Final Stages Of Trade Talks, With Formal Deal Possible By Month’s End – MarketWatch
.

China and the U.S. are in the final stage of completing a trade deal, with Beijing offering to lower tariffs and other restrictions on American farm, chemical, auto and other products and Washington considering removing most, if not all, sanctions levied against Chinese products since last year.

The agreement is taking shape following February’s talks in Washington, people briefed on the matter on both sides said. They cautioned that hurdles remain, and each side faces possible resistance at home that the terms are too favorable to the other side.

Despite the remaining hurdles, the talks have progressed to the extent that a formal agreement could be reached at a summit between President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping, probably around March 27…

SpaceX’s Crew Dragon Capsule Docks With International Space Station – ITV

SpaceX’s new crew capsule has arrived at the International Space Station, completing its second milestone in just over a day. Three space station astronauts had front-row seats as the Dragon neatly docked on Sunday morning and became the first American-made, designed-for-crew spacecraft to pull up in eight years.

While SpaceX has sent plenty of cargo Dragons to the space station, crew Dragon is a different vehicle. It docked autonomously, instead of relying on the station’s robot arm for help.

The Crew Dragon capsule successfully launched from Nasa’s Kennedy Space Centre in Florida on Saturday. NASA said the the unmanned craft was a significant step for “launching American astronauts on American rockets from American soil again for the first time since the retirement of the space”.

The only passenger aboard the capsule is a life-size test dummy, named Ripley from the Alien movies…

Canada’s Economy Practically Grinds To A Halt, And Nobody Saw It Coming – Financial Post

Canada’s economy practically came to a halt in the final three months of 2018, in a much deeper-than-expected slowdown that brings the underlying strength of the expansion into doubt.

The country’s economy grew by just 0.1 per cent in the fourth quarter, for an annualized pace of 0.4 per cent, Statistics Canada said Friday from Ottawa. That’s the worst quarterly performance in two and a half years, down from annualized 2 per cent in the third quarter and well below economist expectations for a 1 per cent annualized increase.

While a slowdown was widely expected in the final months of the year due to falling oil prices, it’s a much bleaker picture than anyone anticipated with weakness extending well beyond the energy sector.

Consumption spending grew at the slowest pace in almost four years, housing fell by the most in a decade, business investment dropped sharply for a second straight quarter, and domestic demand posted its largest decline since 2015…

Trump Thrills CPAC Crowd With Record-Long Speech Lasting Over Two Hours – Breitbart

President Donald Trump treated Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) crowds with a speech that lasted over two hours on Saturday. The speech was certainly the longest CPAC speech ever given by a president of the United States and the longest speech ever at CPAC. It was also described as the longest speech of his presidency.

Trump stopped to hug the American flag after he took the stage at 12:14 p.m. EST to his favorite American anthem, “Proud to Be an American” by Lee Greenwood.

He began his speech by recalling his first big political speech at CPAC in 2011. “I enjoyed it so much that I came back for a second one. Then a third, and then I said, ‘What the hell, let’s run for president,’” Trump said…

Jew-Hating Democrat Rashida Tlaib Paid Herself $17,500 From Campaign Funds After The Election In Apparent FEC Violation – Washington Examiner

The newly elected firebrand Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., could be in hot water after Federal Election Commission filings show she paid herself thousands of dollars in salary from her successful midterm campaign.

The filing shows the Michigan lawmaker taking more than $17,000 in two disbursements as a salary nearly a month after the conclusion of the 2018 midterm elections.

A candidate can only draw a salary from the official campaign for the duration of their candidacy. The FEC specifies that a candidate no longer qualifies for salary payments from the day after the general election. The two salary disbursements were made on Nov. 16 for $2,000 and on Dec. 1 for $15,500.

“Salary payments may continue until the date when the candidate is no longer considered a candidate for office or until the date of the general election or general election runoff,” the FEC states…
