.

.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers in South Texas seized more than $18 million worth of methamphetamine, heroin, cocaine, and marijuana in a single drug smuggling incident.

Rio Grande Valley Sector officers assigned to the Pharr-Reynosa International Bridge cargo facility observed a tractor-trailer approaching from Mexico for entry inspection before entering the United States, according to information obtained from CBP officials in South Texas. The officers referred the driver of the rig hauling a shipment of fresh broccoli to a secondary inspection station for further scrutiny.

Officers checked the trailer with a non-intrusive imaging system which led to the discovery of a large number of unusual packages based upon the cargo manifest…

Feds Charge Somali Specialty Market Owners In Columus, Ohio With Food Stamp Fraud Totaling More Than $10 Million – WCMH

The former owners of a Somali specialty market have been charged with food stamp fraud.

A federal grand jury has charged Hassan and Abdurahim Nuriso, former owners of Towfiq Market on Sullivant Avenue, with conspiring fraudulently to redeem more than $10 million in SNAP and WIC benefits between 2010 and 2019.

“It’s very clear in all the regulations what you can and can’t do,” said Asst. U.S. Attorney David Bosley. “You can’t give food stamps for cash, you can’t buy items that are not allowed under the food stamp program, you can’t buy things that aren’t food, and you can’t give credit.”

As part of the alleged conspiracy, the Nuriso brothers are accused of converting illegally obtained food stamp benefits, WIC coupons, and WIC electronic benefits into money, in order to use the money for other purposes.

The five-count indictment also alleges the Nuriso’s allowed SNAP and WIC beneficiaries to purchase items that were not redeemable through the food stamp or WIC programs…

Bernie Comrades Demand Chris Matthews Resign Over His Nazi Comments – Right Scoop

So the Bernie Bro comrades, who are known for spewing online vitriol, are incensed that Chris Matthews compared Bernie Sanders winning in Nevada to a historical event. Because that event involved the NAZIS!

Poor little fella. As we showed before, he’s finally making the connection between these socialists and the vicious bloodthirsty communists of old. He even said that he would be one of those who would be lined up and shot in Central Park. Well it’s a little too late.

ICE Should Deport George Soros As A Nazi Collaborator – Daniel Greenfield

The deportation of a Nazi death camp guard from his residence in Queens, New York, in 2018 by ICE was described as the removal of the “last known Nazi collaborator from the United States.”

That’s not quite true.

There’s another Nazi collaborator living on Fifth Avenue. He’s a billionaire and untouchable because his dubious fortune has been used to finance the Democrat Party, radical leftists, assorted anti-Semites, and opponents of ICE: the agency that should step in to remove the aged Hungarian from the United States.

The legal basis for removing Soros is quite clear.

Drunken Mother And Daughter Spark Mid-Air ‘Riot’ Involving 20 Passengers On Easy Jet Flight Because Cabin Crew Asked Them To Stop Swearing – Daily Mail

A drunken mother and daughter abused cabin crew staff and even threw a punch at one, sparking a mid-air ‘riot’ after being repeatedly asked to stop swearing in front of other passengers, a court has heard.

Karin Parkes, 56, and daughter Carrie, 36, triggered a ‘full on fight’ involving up to 20 men at 30,000 feet while intoxicated on pink gin, it was alleged.

Staff on the easyJet flight from Manchester to Agadir in Morocco, which had 186 passengers on board, tried to calm the two women down but Carrie stuck her fingers in her ears and said: ‘I’m not listening to that vile c**t.’

The captain of the aircraft eventually diverted to Casablanca after staff told him the rear of the cabin where the women were sitting was ‘out of control.’

FDA Approves Drug That Lowers Cholesterol In A New Way – Epoch Times

U.S. regulators on Friday approved a new type of cholesterol-lowering drug aimed at millions of people who can’t tolerate – or don’t get enough help from – widely used statin pills like Lipitor and Crestor.

The Food and Drug Administration approved Esperion Therapeutics Inc.’s Nexletol for people genetically predisposed to have sky-high cholesterol and people who have heart disease and need to further lower their bad cholesterol.

The daily pill is to be taken in conjunction with a healthy diet and the highest statin dose patients can handle, the FDA said.

High LDL, or bad cholesterol, is one of the top risks for heart attacks and other problems. Studies showed that Nexletol could lower LDL by about 25 percent when taken alone and by an additional 18 percent when combined with a statin…

And then can you get it into patients?” Price told Houston’s KHOU 11. “And that’s where we have an edge as well on the other companies that are out there.”

Indiana Teacher Claims She Was Fired For Exposing Left-Wing ‘Social Emotional Learning’ Scheme – Big League Politics

New York Times Publishes Op-Ed By Afghan Terrorist Leader – Daily Wire

That provoked an outcry from many people familiar with the group’s bloody history and the massacres it has committed.

In the op-ed, titled “What We, the Taliban, Want,” Sirajuddin Haqqani wrote, “The long war has exacted a terrible cost from everyone. We thought it unwise to dismiss any potential opportunity for peace no matter how meager the prospects of its success.

For more than four decades, precious Afghan lives have been lost every day. Everyone has lost somebody they loved. Everyone is tired of war. I am convinced that the killing and the maiming must stop.”…

Facebook Sued For $9 Billion By Internal Revenue Service After Shifting Profits For Ireland – Big League Politics

Facebook is set to be sued for $9 billion by the Internal Revenue Service, which accuses the company of undervaluing intellectual property it transferred to Ireland in an effort to avoid compliance with American tax rules.

The IRS is accusing Facebook of significantly undervaluing the cost of intellectual property it transferred to an Irish component of its company in 2010. They’ll make their argument before a San Francisco judge later this month.

Facebook expects the litigation to be settled in a matter of weeks. It’s probable that the proceedings will end with a settlement in which the Silicon Valley social media behemoth will agree to pay a portion of the back taxes it owes as a result of the 2010 tax haven move. Leading employees of the company, including Chief Technology Officer Mike Schroepfer, are expected to testify in the proceedings.

Alan Dershowitz: Democrats Acting Like Stalin, ‘Show Me The Man And I’ll Find You The Crime’ – CNS

Five Times Democrats Didn’t Care When Obama Committed Obstruction Of Justice – Matt Margolis

Listening to Democrats make their “case” for impeaching Trump is like watching a child make excuses for why they should be able to stay up late or not have to eat their vegetables. It’s an endless evolving list of explanations and excuses.

We’ve seen them allege a quid pro quo, bribery, extortion… basically whatever polled well on a given week. One fairly new angle they’ve been pushing is that the mere pushback against subpoenas is tantamount to obstruction of justice – an impeachable offense.

Professor Jonathan Turley destroyed this argument during his testimony this week before the House Judiciary Committee. “He’s allowed to do that; we have three branches, not two. If you impeach a president, if you make a high crime and misdemeanor out of going to the courts, it is an abuse of power. It’s your abuse of power,” Turley said, referring Congress. “You are doing precisely what you’re criticizing the president for doing.”

Too Stupid To Survive – Mark Steyn

I can no longer remember when I first used the line, but, as I’ve said many times before, sometimes a society becomes too stupid to survive.

Back when President Trump was Candidate Trump, he famously proposed a soi-disant “Muslim ban” on entry to the United States “until our country’s representatives can figure out what the hell is going on”.

Which was a rationale to which I was rather partial – because a failure to “figure out what the hell is going on” is a big part of why we’re where we are a generation after 9/11. Mohammed is now in the Top Ten boys’ names in America, which means it will sooner than you think be, as it is in Europe, among the Top Five boys’ names, and eventually the Number One.

Well, the “Muslim ban” never happened, after being struck down by judges and filleted into meaninglessness by the lawyers of the permanent bureaucracy. But you would think, given the mountain of corpses piled up on 9/11, that at the very minimum Saudi nationals would no longer be being given pilot training in Florida…

How Trump Got Mexico To Solve America’s Border Surge When Congress Wouldn’t – Stephen Dinan

President Trump pleaded with Congress to do something as illegal immigration across the southwestern border soared this spring. Republicans seemed willing, but it was a nonstarter for Democrats. Party leaders even accused Mr. Trump of manufacturing the crisis.

So the president turned to Mexico with a combination of negotiations, controls, threats and even an explicit quid pro quo: Do something to stop 4,000 people from crossing Mexican territory each day en route to the U.S. or face crippling tariffs.

Mexican negotiators ran to Washington to make a deal. Mr. Trump didn’t get everything he wanted, but he got enough. By July, the numbers were dropping. By September, they were in manageable territory and falling.

With additional help from El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala – the countries of most of the children and families that made up the surge – the president effectively outsourced the border problem to Mexico and got the Mexicans to do what Congress wouldn’t…

FBI Failed To Inform FISA Court That Steele Dossier Was Unreliable – National Review

German Industrial Production Crashes By Most In A Decade – Zero Hedge

Just when you thought – based on all the talking heads and administration officials constant jawboning – that it was safe to buy stocks because global growth was troughing, Germany’s auto sector has to spoil the party.

Thanks to a 5.4% MoM plunge in auto production in October, German Industrial output fell 1.7% in October, that’s the steepest since April and compared with estimates for a 0.1% gain. This unexpected drop sent industrial output down 5.3% YoY – the biggest drop since November 2009.

Additionally, a new source of weakness has also emerged, with production of capital goods excluding cars now down 5.9% on its August level.

As Bloomberg notes, this means the sector is starting the fourth quarter on a very weak footing and could again place a heavy burden on the economy in 4Q. The weakness also adds downside risk to forecasts for manufacturing to stabilize this quarter (weighing down on GDP growth in 4Q by 0.59ppt)…

Leftists Rally On Behalf Of Foreign-Born Convicted Murder Who Is Set To Be Deported By ICE – Big League Politics

A foreign-born convicted murderer, Tyrone Abraham has become the latest cause du jour for liberals as they hope to get him freed before he is set to be deported by ICE.

Abraham served 25 years in prison after being convicted for the crime of second-degree murder. He is celebrated by liberals because he turned into an advocate for gun control while he was behind bars. He gave his testimony as apart of a campaign for prisoners’ voices to be heard.

Meet Tyrone. Spent 25 years in prison. Atoning for a murder at 19. Earned his BA & Masters. Helped youth understand impact of gun violence. Respected & loved. Granted parole earlier this year.

MAGA Update: After Zero Refugee Arrivals In October, November Admissions Set 18-Year Low For That Month – CNS

After an unprecedented month of not a single refugee admission into the United States in October, last month saw a total of 1,488 refugees arrive, according to State Department Refugee Processing Center data.

The November arrivals were the lowest for the month since 2001, when in the aftermath of the 9/11 terror attacks on America just four refugees were resettled in the U.S.

Between then and this year, the number of admissions during the second-last month of the calendar year has ranged from a low of 1,858 refugees (also under the Trump administration, in 2017), and a high of 8,355 (under the Obama administration, in 2016).

President Trump has signed off on a ceiling of 18,000 refugee admissions for fiscal year 2020, the lowest annual cap set by a president since the modern refugee admission program was established in 1980…

Relax: The London Bridge Jihad Murderer Was “Deradicalized” – Robert Spencer

ITV News reported Saturday that Usman Khan, the devout Muslim who murdered two people and injured three others in a stabbing rampage on London Bridge Friday “penned a letter from his jail cell asking to take part in a deradicalisation course to become ‘a good British citizen.’”

And predictably, British authorities, ever anxious to avoid charges of “Islamophobia,” fell for it hook, line, and sinker. He was even at a deradicalization event when his jihad attack began.

Khan’s plaintive cry for help came in October 2012, “after his conviction for plotting to blow up the London Stock Exchange as a member of an al Qaida-inspired group.” While he was in prison, he wrote to British authorities, saying he wanted to “learn Islam and its teachings” through a “deradicalidation [sic] course.”…

Democrat Treason Update: Sanctuary State Colorado: Freed Illegal Alien Accused Of Attempted Murder – Breitbart

An illegal alien in the sanctuary state of Colorado has been re-arrested for attempted murder less than a month after he was freed from prison.

Protesters could be heard shouting slogans such as “disband the police force,” and “the heavens will eliminate the Chinese Communist Party, let the entire Party die.”

Syracuse University is, of course, a liberal college campus located in one of the most liberal states in America, yet its students maintain it is a hotbed of racism. Students naturally took the allegations as fact and started protesting the university and demanding Chancellor Kent Syverud resign.

Alabama Supreme Court Upholds Law Protecting Confederate Monuments – The Hill

The Dow Jones Industrial Average, the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq Composite rallied to new all-time highs ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday when U.S. financial markets will be closed.

Schreiber was found guilty of first-degree murder in the 1996 ax-handle bludgeoning death of John Terry, and sentenced to life behind bars without the possibility of parole.

In March 2015, Schreiber developed large kidney stones and was hospitalized after septic poisoning caused him to pass out in his cell at the Iowa State Penitentiary.

After he was rushed to a hospital, Schreiber’s heart had to be restarted five times by medical staff, in spite of a ‘do not resuscitate’ order he had in place, according to court documents…

Jeff Sessions Announces Bid To Regain Senate Seat – Fox News

Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced he will be running to regain his former U.S. Senate seat in 2020, in a bombshell interview with Tucker Carlson on Thursday.

Sessions, 72, served an at-times tumultuous tenure as the nation’s highest-ranking law enforcement officer – drawing President Trump’s ire after he recused himself from the Russia investigation and left his deputy, Rod Rosenstein, in charge.

The Alabama Republican, however, was also one of then-businessman Trump’s earliest and most vocal supporters – notably appearing at a packed campaign rally in Mobile in 2015.

“We’ll file our papers tomorrow,” Sessions told Carlson on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”…

U.S., China Take Another Step In Trade Talks, Chinese Official Says – Daily Caller

The U.S. and China are coming closer to lifting some tariffs in what appears to be the beginning of a potential trade deal, China’s commerce ministry announced Thursday, although doubts among U.S. officials as to the specifics of a deal remain.

The announcement came after President Donald Trump met with Chinese trade officials in October and announced that the two countries would work to move toward a tentative agreement, the first phase of which he said could begin in November.

“If the phase-one deal is signed, China and the U.S. should remove the same proportion of tariffs simultaneously based on the content of the deal,” Chinese Commerce Ministry spokesman Gao Feng said during a press briefing Thursday, The Wall Street Journal reported. “This is what [both sides] agreed on following careful and constructive negotiations over the past two weeks.”

“The trade war started with tariffs, and should end with the cancellation of tariffs,” the commerce ministry spokesman continued, according to Reuters…

Texas Voters Approve Constitutional Ban On State Income Tax – National Review

Texas voters on Tuesday approved an amendment to the state’s constitution banning an income tax. While Texas is already one of seven states that does not have an income tax, the amendment will make it extremely difficult to impose the tax in the future.

“Today’s passage of Prop 4 is a victory for taxpayers across the Lone Star State,” said Republican Governor Greg Abbot. “I am grateful to Rep. Jeff Leach for his bold leadership on this issue, and for the overwhelming majority of Texans who voted to ensure that our great state will always be free of a state income tax.

“This ban on such a disastrous tax will keep our economy prosperous, protect taxpayers, and ensure that Texas remains the best state to live, work, and raise a family,” Abbot continued.

The Texas government currently derives most of its revenue from sales and property taxes.

EU Approves Brexit Delay Until January 31 As Johnson Hopes To Trigger General Election – Zero Hedge

In a Monday morning tweet, EU Council President Donald Tusk announced that the leaders of the EU would accept Johnson’s request (made under legal duress) for another Brexit “flextension” until Jan. 31, 2020. The decision, Tusk said, will be “formalized” by a written procedure, which means that EU leaders will not need to hold a summit in Brussels to sign off.

According to the FT, the ministers agreed to the extension at a brief, 20-minute meeting Monday morning. All that’s left now is for the capitals of the EU to officially sign off on the legal procedures, which is expected to take a few days.

Trump Administration Testing Out Program That Quickly Deports Migrants Who Arrive At Border – Daily Caller

The Trump administration has launched a pilot program that expedites the time it takes to process and deport asylum seekers at the U.S-Mexico border.

Migrants arriving at the border in El Paso, Texas, can receive a decision regarding their asylum claims in 10 days or less, rather than undergo an asylum process that could take months or years, according to a report from the Washington Post. The new program, known as Prompt Asylum Claim Review, aims to deter illegal immigration and keep asylum seekers out of the U.S.

The program just launched in October and is being conducted in the El Paso area only.

Under Prompt Asylum Claim Review, migrants who have been apprehended in the El Paso area are transferred to a 1,500-bed Border Patrol facility. They are then given one day to phone a lawyer or family member, and then they are interviewed by an asylum officer to determine if their asylum claims are credible, according to Customs and Border Protection officials who spoke with the Washington Post…

Pew Research: Average Illegal Alien Has Lived In U.S. For 15 Years – Breitbart

The latest research by Pew Research Center reveals that, of the roughly 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the U.S., the average illegal alien has lived in the country for 15 years – imposing an enormous financial burden on American taxpayers.

In 2000, the average illegal alien lived in the U.S. for about 7.2 years. Today, the average time that an illegal alien lives in the country has more than doubled just two decades later.

“In 2017, only 20% of unauthorized immigrant adults lived in the U.S. for five years or less, down from 30% a decade earlier,” Pew analysts write. “About two-thirds of unauthorized immigrants have been in the U.S. for more than 10 years; a decade earlier, less than half had.”

In the U.S. workforce, there are at least 7.6 million illegal aliens holding American jobs that would have otherwise gone to American citizens and legal immigrants.

University College London lecturer and Optegra Eye Hospital surgeon Alex Shortt said it was a significant development by specialists from Baylor Medical College in Texas and the University of California Los Angeles.

“Previously all attempts to create a bionic eye focused on implanting into the eye itself. It required you to have a working eye, a working optic nerve,” Shortt told the Daily Mail.

Another Immigration Coup For Trump: Guatemala Agrees To Harbor Thousands Of Asylum Seekers – PJ Media

Currently, the backlog of asylum cases is nearing one million. Every single one of those asylum seekers is entitled to a hearing before an immigration judge.

The law will apply to men “between 18 and 65 who are found guilty of raping or sexually abusing minors, and could affect thousands of people a year,” said the news outlet.

Every year around this time, as the temperatures rise and the polar ice caps melt and planetary doom inches closer, our privileged and obviously bored society erupts into a debate about air conditioning.

If you are a healthy and sane person who doesn’t spend much time on the internet, you might be surprised to learn that air conditioning is the subject of any sort of debate. It is, after all, an objective good – a clear improvement over the alternative, which includes sweltering temperatures, sweaty bodies, heat exhaustion, and death.

Air conditioning joins the ranks of indoor plumbing and electricity as a net-positive modern invention that has made life healthier, better, and more comfortable for billions of people worldwide. You would have to be a world-class whiner to find any reason to complain about something so wondrous and useful as air conditioning.

Prosecutors Say Jeffrey Epstein Caught Witness Tampering, Sent $350,000 In Bribes – Big League Politics

New reports reveal prosecutors are accusing convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, who is facing new charges relating to child trafficking, of bribing prosecutors and tampering with witnesses in the days after a bombshell story published by The Miami Herald last November.

Epstein was arrested last weekend with new charges of child trafficking, and if convicted faces up to 45 years in prison.

Oklahoma Man Arrested In Stolen Car With Rattlesnake, Uranium And More, Authorities Say – Daily Caller

Law enforcement in Oklahoma made one heck of a discovery after pulling over a man and his female passenger for driving a vehicle with expired license tags, per authorities. It happened last month when an officer with the Guthrie police department pulled over Stephen Jennings and Rachel Rivera for a routine traffic stop.

“After running the license, the officer found Jennings was driving on an expired license and Rivera was a convicted felon in possession of a firearm,” Sgt. Anthony Gibbs told ABC News in a piece published Thursday.

Both people were then placed under arrest. But the real discovery came after law enforcement took the vehicle to be impounded because it didn’t have insurance and first discovered that the Ford explorer had been stolen. Then while authorities were searching the car they found a rattlesnake.

Magic Wand Update: Prices Of Goods An The U.S. Did Not Rise At All Despite China Tariff Hike – Breitbart

The Trump administration’s trade policies are not raising prices for U.S. consumers. Prices for goods in the U.S. dropped 0.4 percent in June even as tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese imports rose from 10 percent to 25 percent, the Labor Department said Friday. Excluding the volatile food and energy categories, prices were unchanged from the prior month.

So who is paying for the tariffs? We know the U.S. government has collected billions in tariffs, so it is clear that someone is footing the bill. But keep in mind that when journalists and lobbyists claim, “tariffs are taxes on consumers,” this is inaccurate.

Tariffs are taxes, to be sure. But unlike a sales tax or a gas tax, consumers do not directly pay any tariffs…

Trump Deregulation Will Boost Household Income By $3,100, Report Finds – Daily Signal

The Council of Economic Advisers report is titled “The Economic Effects of Federal Deregulation Since January 2017: An Interim Report.”

“Wealthy” Chicago Households On Hook For $2 Million In Debt Each Under ‘Progressive Solution’ To Pension Crisis – Zero Hedge

Chicagoans are buried under so much pension debt it’s impossible to see how their city can avoid a fiscal collapse without major, structural reforms. The futility of paying down those debts becomes obvious when you try to figure out just who’s going to pay for it all.

The total amount of city, county and state retirement debt Chicagoans are on the hook for is $150 billion, based on Moody’s most recent pension data. Split that evenly across the city’s one million-plus households and you arrive at nearly $145,000 per household.

That’s an outrageous amount, but it would be a clean solution if each and every Chicago household could simply absorb $145,000 in government retirement debt. The problem is, most can’t.

Two weeks earlier, Ms Rackete and her crew rescued 40 migrants and had requested permission to drop them off on the tiny Italian-owned island. But the country’s anti-migrant interior minister Matteo Salvini refused to let them disembark on Lampedusa until other European Union countries agreed to take in the asylum-seekers
