DC Bans Churches From Handing Out Straws With Free Coffee – Washington Free Beacon
.

.
Washington, D.C., will begin enforcing its ban on plastic straws on Jan. 1, which would penalize churches for offering free coffee if it comes with a stirrer.

The Department of Energy and Environment tweeted Thursday that Mayor Muriel Bowser has a “list of recyclables and compostables” banning plastic straws and stirrers. However, businesses, churches, and nonprofits can hand out straws and coffee stirrers if they are made from hay.

“On January 1, 2019, new restrictions on the use of single-use plastic straws and stirrers will take effect,” according to the D.C. Department of Energy and Environment. “DOEE will begin inspecting businesses for compliance with the District’s single-use straw and stirrer requirements on January 1st, 2019,” the department said…

School Punishes Male Teacher For Refusing To Watch A Naked Girl In The Boys’ Locker Room – The Federalist

A Florida school district allowed a self-described transgender female student regular access to the boys’ locker room, with no advance warning to the boys or their parents.

The first time she walked in, she caught “boys (literally) with their pants down, causing them embarrassment and concern by the fact that they had been observed changing by an obvious girl,” says a complaint letter to Pasco County School District from Liberty Counsel, a pro-bono constitutional law firm.

With a “gag order,” school administrators forbade teachers from talking about the change, and ordered a male P.E. teacher to supervise the potentially undressed girl in the Chasco Middle School locker room, the letter says.

When he refused to “knowingly place himself in a position to observe a minor female in the nude or otherwise in a state of undress,” administrators told him “he will be transferred to another school as discipline for ‘not doing your job in the locker room.’”…

DemoNazi Senator Compares ICE To The KKK – Townhall
.

.
On Wednesday, Senator Kamala Harris compared the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) service to the Ku Klux Klan, insisting that certain “communities” view the agency as a “domestic terrorist group” that deliberately uses “fear and intimidation” to specifically target “immigrants coming from Mexico and Central America” based on their racial or ethnic background.

The California Democrat made these remarks during a Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee hearing meant to determine whether acting ICE Director Ronald Vitiello will become the agency’s newest official head. In spite of Harris repeatedly formulating her comparison of ICE to the KKK as the “perception” of some distant third party, Vitiello saw through the senator’s transparent attempt to smear him and his agents and denied that any parallels existed between the two groups [emphasis mine]:

VITIELLO: Well, the Klan was what we would call today a domestic terrorist group.

HARRIS: Why? Why would we call them “domestic terrorist group” [sic]?

VITIELLO: ‘Cause they tried to use fear and force to change political environment[sic]…

Family Outraged After Scumbag Sentenced To Less Than 3 Years For Raping Their Dying Daughter – Circa

A Snohomish County, Washington, man was sentenced to 34 months in prison after admitting he raped a young woman while she overdosed on drugs, then let her die.

Brian Varela, 20, pleaded guilty to second-degree manslaughter, third-degree rape and unlawful disposal of remains Thursday.

He admitted he raped 18-year-old Alyssa Noceda last February while she overdosed in his bedroom. He did nothing to help. He even sent photos of her mostly nude body to his friends, mocking her as she lay there dying.

Then he tried to cover up Noceda’s death by disposing of her body, but police caught him first. In court, Varela said, “I’m sorry for my foolish actions. Whatever I get is what I deserve.”

A judge sentenced Varela to 34 months in prison Thursday, acknowledging she felt it was inadequate, but state law required her to follow sentencing guidelines. Varela had no criminal history…

Rick Scott Declares Victory Again As Florida Orders Manual Recount In Senate Race – Washington Times

Florida’s Republican Gov. Rick Scott declared victory in his Senate bid for a second time Thursday after a state-mandated machine recount widened his lead over incumbent Democrat Bill Nelson.

But Mr. Nelson’s legal team, insisting there is not “one universe of votes,” vowed Thursday evening to press on and predicted their candidate eventually will emerge as the winner.

While the election results are not official until certified by the secretary of state, a move that should come after the Elections Canvassing Commission’s Nov. 20 meeting, the unofficial recount expanded Mr. Scott’s edge by 865 votes, leaving him with a margin of 13,427.

The Top Ten University Leaders Who Are Supporters Of Terror – Frontpage

For nearly two decades, the campus organization Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) has established a beachhead of support for anti-Israel terrorists on American campuses, resulting in a dramatic rise in anti-Semitic incidents and the harassment of Jewish students.

After many years of denial, the American and Jewish press have finally begun to take notice of this epidemic of hostility towards Jews and supporters of Israel, but the true depravity of SJP still escapes their notice.

While most of the press coverage debates whether SJP’s anti-Zionism has crossed the line into anti-Semitism, this discussion misses the larger and far more sinister truth that SJP is not just the leading promoter of Jew hatred on American college campuses, nor does it content itself to spread anti-Semitic lies and propaganda defaming Israel, the only liberal democracy in the Middle East as an “apartheid state”- though assuredly it does these things.

The media posturing misses the truth that SJP is a full-fledged arm of the anti-Israel terror group Hamas…

Elon Musk’s SpaceX Wins FCC Approval To Deploy 7,518 Satellites – Bloomberg

Elon Musk’s SpaceX won permission to deploy more than 7,000 satellites, far more than all operating spacecraft currently aloft, from U.S. regulators who also moved to reduce a growing risk from space debris as skies grow more crowded.

Space Exploration Technologies Corp. has two test satellites aloft, and it earlier won permission for a separate set of 4,425 satellites – which like the 7,518 satellites authorized Thursday are designed to provide broadband communications. It has said it plans to begin launches next year.

Space companies riding innovations that include smaller and cheaper satellites – with some just 4 inches long and weighing only 3 pounds – are planning fleets that will fly fast and low, offering communications now commonly handled by larger, more expensive satellites.

Right now there are fewer than 2,000 operating satellites, and the planned additional space traffic demands vigilance, Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai said…

Roy Clark, Country Music Legend And ‘Hee Haw’ Star, Dead At 85 – Fox News

A rep for the singer told Fox News Clark died on Thursday at his Tulsa, Okla., home due to complications from pneumonia.

‘Alarming’ Study Claiming Global Warming Heating Up Oceans Based On Math Error – Washington Free Beacon

A highly circulated study claiming oceans are warming at a much higher rate due to global warming contains “key errors,” forcing researchers to issue a correction.

The study published by the journal Nature on Oct. 31 by researchers at Princeton University and UC San Diego’s Scripps Institution of Oceanography claimed the oceans were warming at a rate 60 percent higher than previously thought.

However, a mathematical error discovered by independent climate scientist Nic Lewis after he perused the study’s first page has led the journal to retract its key finding. The study has a much larger margin of error, making their findings of a 60 percent increase in ocean warming less precise, and actually between 10 percent and 70 percent.

The lead researcher now says its findings are practically meaningless, with a margin of error “too big now to really weigh in” on ocean temperatures.

When first published, the study led to “alarming” warnings in mainstream media outlets…

Feds Investigating Altered Election Documents Tied To Florida Democrat Party – Zero Hedge

The Florida Department of State (DoS) last week has asked federal prosecutors to investigate official election documents with the dates changed, which the department says can be tied to the Florida Democratic Party, according to Politico.

The concerns, which the department says can be tied to the Florida Democratic Party, center around date changes on forms used to fix vote-by-mail ballots sent with incorrect or missing information.

Known as “cure affidavits,” those documents used to fix mail ballots were due no later than 5 p.m. on Nov. 5 – the day before the election. But affidavits released on Tuesday by the DOS show that documents from four different counties said the ballots could be returned by 5 p.m. on Thursday, which is not accurate. – Politico

New Report Shows How Incredibly Wrong Obama Was About Energy Independence – Investor’s Business Daily

Energy: Has any politician ever been more wrong than Barack Obama was about U.S. oil production and energy independence? Based on the latest report from the International Energy Agency, the answer is unequivocally no.

On Tuesday, oil prices fell for the 12th consecutive decline. And amid that decline, the International Energy Agency forecasts that the U.S. will account for 75% of the growth in global oil production through 2025.

That’s a stunning finding that shows how dynamic the domestic oil and gas industry has become.

Crude oil production in the U.S. has climbed more than 67% in just the past six years. And the Department of Energy expects it will climb an additional 11% next year.

Earlier this year, U.S. production hit 11 million barrels a day, surpassing Russia as the world’s largest oil producer, after having blown past Saudi Arabia in February…

Acting AG Whitaker In 2016: ‘Special Counsel Is Required’ To Investigate Clinton Foundation – CNS

Matthew Whitaker, the acting attorney general of the United States and a former U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Iowa, said in a 2016 interview that there is enough evidence “in the public domain” to warrant the appointment of a “special prosecutor” to investigate the Clinton Foundation.

He added that the Foundation was “clearly a pay-to-play situation” where if you gave money to the Foundation, you got “preferential treatment” at the State Department, which was headed by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton from 2009 to 2013.

Hillary Clinton’s emailing of classified documents through her private computer server was a “serious” problem, but the “real ballgame” is “where Clinton Foundation donors were given preferential treatment,” said Whitaker in an Aug. 25, 2016 interview with Breitbart News Daily.

Disney World Bans Veteran After Holding ‘Trump 2020’ Sign On Ride – Washington Standard

An ex-Marine veteran was banned from Walt Disney World and all its parks after waving a “Trump 2020” banner while riding Splash Mountain. Interestingly enough, Disney apparently thought he was such a threat that they used 40 employees to escort out the 49-year-old veteran.

“I held up the sign for two seconds so I can take a picture,” Dion Cini told the New York Post. “You’re allowed to hold up signs on Disney rides – cameras, cellphones, and other stuff like that. People have been doing it for years. They just kicked me out ’cause of the context of the sign.”

Cini took to Facebook to share his story writing, “Trespassed from WDW for holding a Trump 2020 banner on Splash Mountain. – feeling super at Walt Disney’s Magic Kingdom.”

Disney didn’t think this through. Now, this story is going to go viral, Trump will get some major advertising from this and they are probably going to lose some business over this. The guy was a loyal patron, Disney. You just don’t do that.

Parasitic Leftist Judge Blocks Keystone Pipeline – Daily Wire

On Thursday, a federal judge in Montana blocked the Keystone XL oil pipeline and President Trump’s permit for the Canada-to-Texas pipeline, which Trump signed within days of taking office in January 2017.

The Keystone XL is designed to transport heavy crude oil from Alberta, Canada, to Nebraska, then connect with another pipeline to travel to Illinois.

Judge Brian Morris of the District Court for the District of Montana, who was nominated to his position by former President Barack Obama, ruled that the Trump administration’s reversal of Obama’s denial to give the pipeline a permit lacked proper justification. Morris claimed that the State Department, which analyzed the pipeline, “simply discarded” climate change concerns related to the project.

Morris stated that the State Department did not factor in low oil prices, the cumulative impacts of greenhouse gases and the risk of oil spills when it executed its analysis…

Rick Scott Files Lawsuits Against Lying, Cheating, Leftist Supervisors Of Elections In Broward, Palm Beach – WPLG

Texas State Lawmaker Wins Reelection From Jail – The Hill

A state lawmaker in Texas this week was reelected to his fifth term from jail, where he is serving a yearlong sentence. State Rep. Ron Reynolds (D) received nearly 50,000 votes in his unopposed bid for reelection, according to The Dallas Morning News.

Reynolds was convicted in 2015 of five misdemeanors for using a middleman to drive business for his law firm. The lawmaker did not have to resign his seat because the charges were misdemeanors.

Reynolds’s conviction reportedly stemmed from an undercover investigation in 2012 that found a chiropractic firm influenced patients to hire Reynolds after they were hurt in accidents.

Those charges were later dropped because investigators were accused of stealing evidence in an unrelated case. But a year later, Reynolds was arrested and found guilty of being involved in a $25 million kickback scheme involving the owner of a pair of chiropractic clinics…

Socialist Hellhole Update: Venezuela’s Annual Inflation Hit 833,997 Percent In October – Reuters

Venezuela’s consumer prices rose 833,997 percent in the twelve months through October, according to a report by the opposition-controlled Congress published on Wednesday, the latest sign that policy changes in August failed to halt rampant hyperinflation.

Monthly inflation decelerated to 148 percent from 233 percent in September, the data showed, but left the OPEC nation on track to reach the 1 million percent inflation in 2018 expected by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) after five straight years of recession.

“The figure is still scandalously high,” said opposition lawmaker Angel Alvarado. The legislature has become the only source for economic indicators after the central bank stopped publishing such information nearly three years ago as the economy unraveled amid a collapse in crude oil prices.

Pro-Life Win In West Virginia – Washington Free Beacon

Abortion supporters suffered a major setback in West Virginia after voters amended the state constitution. On Tuesday 52 percent of the state’s voters approved Amendment 1, which overturned a 1993 court ruling that allowed taxpayer-funded abortions.

The ballot measure specifically said that the West Virginia constitution does not include the right to kill a baby in the womb, opening the door for restrictions on the practice, as well as prohibition if the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade. Pro-lifers celebrated the result.

“West Virginians value life and reject abortion on demand,” said Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List. “Over the years, West Virginia taxpayers have been forced to fund the destruction of more than 35,000 innocent unborn children – including late-term abortions – at a cost of nearly $10 million.

“We are pleased to announce that Matthew G. Whitaker, Chief of Staff to Attorney General Jeff Sessions at the Department of Justice, will become our new Acting Attorney General…

Our New Muslim Representatives – Robert Spencer

As expected, two Muslim women, Rashida Tlaib in Michigan and Ilhan Omar in Minnesota, have been overwhelmingly elected to Congress. The establishment media will celebrate these victories as triumphs of America’s “diversity”; unfortunately, in reality neither one is worth celebrating.

Tlaib is a vociferous foe of Israel. With the Democrats now regaining control of the House, Tlaib is likely to be an energetic proponent of the new majority’s vendetta against the Middle East’s only democracy.

The House is likely to do all it can to roll back President Trump’s pro-Israel polices, with Tlaib as well as Omar as becoming the public faces of the effort.

According to the JTA, when Tlaib was asked if she would vote against military aid to Israel, Tlaib responded: “Absolutely, if it has something to do with inequality and not access to people having justice. For me, U.S. aid should be leverage. I will be using my position in Congress so that no country, not one, should be able to get aid from the U.S. when they still promote that kind of injustice.”…

President Trump on Wednesday sparred with reporter Jim Acosta in a press conference, at one point calling him a “rude, terrible person” and telling him CNN should be “ashamed” of employing him.

The heated exchange began after Acosta questioned Trump over his characterization of the migrant caravan heading toward the southern U.S. border. As Acosta pressed Trump on his past comments regarding the caravan, the president appeared to grow increasingly angry.

“CNN should be ashamed of themselves, having you working for them,” Trump said after Acosta gave up the mic. “You are a rude, terrible person.” He then said Acosta shouldn’t be working for the network…

Psychopathic Fucktards Win Slight Majority In U.S. House Of Representatives; Normal People Retain Control Of Senate – Zero Hedge

Despite record voter turnout and a staggering $5 billion political spend between both parties, Democrats’ hoped-for ‘blue wave’ failed to materialize on Tuesday. Instead, the reality was closer to a purple wash.

Democrats won a slight majority in the House – they were up 26 seats at last count, three more than the 23 needed to flip control, with more races expected to be called in their favor on Wednesday – but Republicans picked up seats in the Senate, solidifying what had been a razor-thin majority.

Almost all of those seats were won by staunch conservatives who are expected to back the Trump agenda. Meanwhile, it’s unlikely that the Democrats will come anywhere close to the 40 seats they would have needed to signify a “tsunami-like” victory.

However, at least one Democratic narrative was validated as 18 of the 29 Republican districts that flipped to the Democrats were won by women, cementing the ‘year of the woman’ narrative…

Proposal 1 allows adults 21 or older to possess 2.5 ounces or less of marijuana in public, transfer that amount to other adults “without remuneration,” possess up to 10 ounces at home, and grow up to 12 plants for personal consumption.

Socialist Douchebag Andrew Gillum Concedes Florida Governor’s Race To Republican Ron DeSantis – The Hill

Democrat Andrew Gillum has conceded the race for Florida governor to Republican Ron DeSantis, marking a major win for the GOP in their bid to hold on to the top job in the nation’s largest swing state.

“Earlier this evening, I called Mr. Ron DeSantis and congratulated him on what we expect will be him as the next governor of the great state of Florida,” Gillum told supporters Tuesday night. “I want you to know that in spite of our congratulating him on his victory this evening, nothing we believe in has been compromised.”

DeSantis’s apparent victory is a key accomplishment for Republicans, who feared that an energetic Democratic base and dissatisfaction with President Trump among moderate voters could cost them the governorship in the country’s third-most-populous state.

The win is also likely to be seen as a bellwether for Trump’s support in the nation’s largest swing state ahead of his 2020 reelection bid…

2019 Tax Refunds Will Be 26% Higher, Morgan Stanley Says – Fortune

Odds are you’re paying too high a tax bill today. The good news, though, is that means you could see a notably higher refund next year. A research note from Morgan Stanley estimates 2019 refunds will top this year’s by 26%, working out to an extra $62 billion given back by the Internal Revenue Service.

Payroll taxes are where people have been overpaying, says the investment firm, as most haven’t changed their withholding. Combine that with the GOP’s tax bill, which was passed last December and it increases the odds of a nice refund.

The bulk of the refunds, says Morgan Stanley, will be sent in February. And that could have some positive effects for the economy.

“We expect this boost in tax refunds to result in a sharply higher savings rate and elevated sales of big-ticket items in February and March 2019,” the firm wrote. The bulk of people getting refunds – some 65% – tucked them into savings this year…

John Bolton: Trump Slaps ‘Tough’ Sanctions On Venezuela, Targets Gold Sector – Yahoo News

The White House imposed “tough” new sanctions against Venezuela on Thursday, denouncing Caracas as being part of a “troika of tyranny” that includes Cuba and Nicaragua.

National Security Advisor John Bolton told an audience at Miami Dade College that the sanctions would particularly target Venezuela’s gold sector, which “has been used as a bastion to finance illicit activities, to fill its coffers and to support criminal groups.”

Bolton, a longtime foreign policy hawk, said the elections of far-right Jair Bolsonaro in Brazil and conservative Ivan Duque in Colombia were “positive signs for the future of the region” that demonstrate a regional commitment to free markets and “accountable governance.”

“The troika of tyranny in this hemisphere will not endure forever,” Bolton said, referring to Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua. “Like all oppressive regimes and ideologies, it too will meet its demise.”

The economy is the second most important issue for registered voters as the midterm election nears, a new Gallup Poll says. And there was very good economic news on Friday, as the Labor Department’s Bureau of Labor Statistics rolled out the October employment report – the final one before next week’s midterm election.

The number of employed Americans has never been higher. The 156,562,000 Americans employed in October is the twefth record set under President Donald Trump.

In October, the number of employed men age 20 and up – 80,405,000 – set the 12th record since Trump took office; and likewise, for the 12th time, the number of employed women age 20 and up set a record, reaching 70,909,000 in October.

Ex-Goldman Banker To Plead Guilty To 1MDB Criminal Charges, Forfeit $44 Million – Zero Hedge

Last we checked in with former Goldman Sachs SE Asia chairman Tim Leissner, the banker was nearing the nadir of a dramatic fall from grace that resulted in him being terminated from the bank, as it sought to distance itself from a series of shady bond underwritings organized by Leissner.

Goldman, as first reported in 2016, was deeply involved with the Malaysian government’s efforts to seed the 1MDB development fund, which, as we now know thanks to the DOJ, was used by former Malaysian President Najib Razak as his own personal slush fund, with most of the money going to purchase luxury yachts, paints – and some of the money was even used to help finance the Hollywood blockbuster “The Wolf of Wall Street”.

In total, Razak and his cronies are believed to have stolen nearly $700 million.

Winning: U.S. Productivity Pops 2.2% In Third Quarter, Caps Best Back-To-Back Gain In Four Years – MarketWatch

U.S. productivity rose at 2.2% annual pace in the third quarter after a strong gain in the spring, marking the best back-to-back performance in four years in a good sign for the economy. Companies increased the amount of goods and services they produced, known as output, by 4.1% in the three months stretching from July to September.

The hours workers spent on the job rose by a smaller 1.8%, the government said Thursday. Productivity also rose at a revised 3% annual rate in the second quarter. Rising productivity in the long run is the key to a higher standard of living.

Even with two straight strong gains, however, productivity only rose at a mild 1.3% rate over the past 12 months. That matches the annual average from 2007 to 2017, but it’s well below the 2.1% average since the end of World War II.

British Woman Claims To Have Had Sex With 20 Ghosts, Now Engaged To One – People

Nearly $6 Billion Belonging To Dead Libyan Dictator Gaddafi Has Gone Missing – Zero Hedge

Muslim Rape Gang Of 20 Men Whose Trial Led To Tommy Robinson’s Arrest Are Jailed For More Than 220 Years For Sexually Assaulting White Girls As Young As 11 – Daily Mail

Trump Asks Cabinet Agencies To Cut 5% From Budgets – Washington Times

President Trump asked his Cabinet secretaries Wednesday to cut their budgets by 5 percent, mindful that the government reported a $117 billion increase in the federal deficit just three weeks ahead of the midterm elections.

“Get rid of the fat, get rid of the waste,” Mr. Trump said at a Cabinet meeting. “I’m sure everybody at this table can do it. It’ll have a huge impact. That’s a very, very important request that I’m making.”

He said the Defense Department, which has received a two-year rebuilding plan totaling $1.416 trillion, would be exempt.

“Now that we have our military taken care of, we have our law enforcement taken care of, we can do things that we really weren’t in a position to do when I first came,” the president said. “I made deals with the devil in order to get that done.”…

MAGA Update: U.S. Steel Workers Set To Get Biggest Pay Raise In Years – Reuters

.
United States Steel Corp (X.N) workers are set to get the biggest wage jump in at least six years under a new deal negotiated with the company, providing early signs that gains from U.S. President Donald Trump’s clampdown on foreign imports are finally trickling down.

The agreement, reached on Monday, proposes a cumulative 14 percent wage increase over a four-year period, three sources familiar with details of the negotiations told Reuters on Tuesday.

Wages were frozen in the last contract, which ended on Sept. 1, as the Pittsburgh-based company was suffering losses from a slump in the domestic steel prices. The 2012-2015 agreement raised wages by an average of about 1.5 percent per year over three years, according to the workers’ union…

Trump Administration Moves To Stop Subsidizing Chinese Mail – WTKR

The Trump administration is moving to raise postage rates for foreign companies that ship packages to the United States.

Some countries, including China, currently benefit from subsidized postal rates set by the Universal Postal Union, a United Nations agency.

On Wednesday, U.S. officials will initiate a withdrawal process from the UPU, which was established in 1874 and has 192 member countries. The process to withdraw will take at least a year, and the administration intends to negotiate new rates with the group during that time.

Under the current rules, the UPU sets lower rates for developing countries. It makes it possible to mail a package from Beijing to New York for less than it costs to send it from San Francisco to New York, for example.

China, Singapore, Germany, France and some other countries benefit from the policy, said a senior White House official on a call with reporters…

Magic Wand Update: Unemployment Rate Falls To Lowest Level Since 1969 – Business Insider

Initial jobless claims fell last week to a 48-year low. First-time filings for unemployment benefits totaled 210,000, the lowest level since December 1969, data from the Department of Labor showed on Thursday. It was a decrease of 10,000 from the prior week and below economists’ forecast for 225,000 claims, according to Bloomberg.

The weekly-jobless-claims data offers the most real-time look into the labor market, since many people file for unemployment benefits not long after they lose their jobs. The four-week moving average of claims, which irons out some of the week-by-week volatility, fell by 5,000 to 220,500 – also the lowest since 1969.

The data shows that the jobs market remains tight, especially for highly skilled workers…

Judge Strikes Down Abortion ‘Sanctuary City’ Ordinance – Washington Free Beacon

St. Louis violated the First Amendment rights of its residents when it tried to become America’s first “sanctuary city” for abortion, according to a federal court.

Fleissig, who was appointed by President Obama at Democratic senator Claire McCaskill’s recommendation, said that ordinance violated Missouri’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act and federal law. The decision stopped short of calling the rule unconstitutional but renders enforcement nearly impossible.

Court: CAIR Must Stand Trial For Fraud – WorldNetDaily

A consumer fraud case against one of the nation’s best-known Muslim advocacy groups, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, will go to trial early next year.

Citing CAIR documents showing there were hundreds of victims of the staffer, Morris Days, the lawsuit alleges CAIR knew of the fraud and conspired to hide it from the victims. Represented by the American Freedom Law Center, the plaintiffs charge breach of fiduciary duty and common law fraud along with violations of Virginia’s statutory consumer fraud.

AFLC said the decade-long litigation exposes CAIR to more than a million dollars in legal fees alone.

USAID Spends $89.7 Million Finding Jobs For 55 Afghan Women – Washington Free Beacon

A federal government program to promote gender equality in Afghanistan and help women find employment is costing taxpayers over $200 million but has only found jobs for 55 women.

Google Employees Mocked For ‘Cult-Like’ Propeller Caps – Breitbart

Following Breitbart Tech’s release of a leaked 2016 Google “TGIF” meeting on Wednesday, which showed Google executives’ negative reactions to the election of President Trump, some viewers expressed confusion and mockery over the multi-colored propeller caps worn by employees in the audience.

For many people, it was the first time they had seen the hats – which are iconic at Google – but more or less unknown in the general populace. The caps are called “Noogler” hats, and are given to new employees at the company during their first TGIF all-hands meeting.

“If you’re new to Google, expect to be called a Noogler. Pronounced ‘new-gler,’ these people are identifiable thanks to the Google-colored propeller caps they receive,”…

12,774 Family Units Apprehended At Border In August; Up 38.1% From July – CNS

U.S. Customs and Border Protection apprehended 37,544 individuals crossing into the country illegally in August. Another 9,016 people were deemed inadmissible and turned away at ports of entry, for a grand total of 46,560 people who tried to take advantage of the nation’s broken immigration system in August alone.

That compares with the 40,011 apprehended/deemed inadmissible in July; and the 30,567 apprehended/inadmissible in August 2017.

Of particular concern last month was the increase in family units. CBP says 12,774 family units tried to cross into the U.S. in August, a 38.1 percent increase from the 9,247 family units picked up in July. That 12,774 number is the highest ever posted for the month of August. (An additional 3,181 family units were deemed inadmissible at Southwest ports of entry.)

The number of unaccompanied children apprehended at the border also increased by 12 percent in August, to 4,396 from 3,920 in July. (Another 376 UACs were deemed inadmissible.)…

Illegal Aliens Cited In Theft Of 39 Million Social Security Numbers – Washington Examiner

Nearly 40 million Social Security numbers have been stolen and used by illegal immigrants and others to get work, according to agency records obtained by an immigration reform group.

The Immigration Reform Law Institute said that from 2012 to 2016 there were “39 million instances where names and Social Security numbers on W-2 tax forms did not match the corresponding Social Security records.”

The group said that there is a “thriving black market” used by illegal immigrants to get Social Security numbers needed to get a job. Their report draws attention to a move by former President Barack Obama to stop sending so-called “no match” letters to employers notifying them that numbers used by employees on the wage forms do not match their identity.

Jobless Claims Fall Again, Hover Near 49-Year Low – MarketWatch

Initial jobless claims, a tracker of sorts for layoffs in the U.S., fell slightly in mid-August and hovered near a 49-year low. New claims declined by 2,000 to 210,000 in the seven days from Aug. 12 to Aug. 18. Economists polled by MarketWatch had forecast a 215,000 reading.

The more stable monthly average of claims slipped by 1,750 to 213,750, the government said Thursday. The number of people already collecting unemployment benefits was barely changed at 1.73 million. These are known as “continuing” claims.

The small decline in new claims reflected the third lowest reading during the current nine-year-old economic expansion, just 2,000 above the post-recession bottom set a month ago.

The rate of layoffs in the U.S. haven’t been this low since the first year of Richard Nixon’s presidency in 1969, when the working-age population was much smaller. Some economists think claims could even drop below 200,000 in the near future…

U.S. Bank Profits Hit A Record $60 Billion In Q2 – Zero Hedge

Only 3.8% of institutions were unprofitable during the quarter, down from 4.3% in second quarter 2017. The average return on assets was 1.37%, up from 1.13% a year earlier, most of it again thank to Trump’s tax law.

The improvement in earnings was mostly attributable to higher net interest income and a lower effective tax rate, which contributed more than $6 billion to the bottom line. Assuming the effective tax rate before the new tax law, net income would have totaled an estimated $53.8 billion, an increase of $5.6 billion (11.7%) from Q2 2017.
