U.S. Cancels Over 1,000 Visas For Chinese Nationals Deemed Security Risks – CNBC

The United States has revoked visas for more than 1,000 Chinese nationals under a May 29 presidential proclamation to suspend entry to Chinese students and researchers deemed security risks, a State Department spokeswoman said on Wednesday.

The acting head of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Chad Wolf, said earlier that Washington was blocking visas “for certain Chinese graduate students and researchers with ties to China’s military fusion strategy to prevent them from stealing and otherwise appropriating sensitive research.”

In a speech, Wolf repeated U.S. charges of unjust business practices and industrial espionage by China, including attempts to steal coronavirus research, and accused it of abusing student visas to exploit American academia.

Wolf said the United States was also “preventing goods produced from slave labor from entering our markets…

Dementia Joe Claims Over 6,000 U.S. Soldiers Have Died From Covid-19; The Actual Number Is 7 – KRDO

In a campaign speech in Michigan focused on manufacturing and union support, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden closed out his remarks Wednesday by reading from a list of U.S. troop fatalities.

Biden told the audience that he carries an updated list with him of the number of troops lost and wounded in Afghanistan and Iraq on the back of his schedule.

After reading several figures of soldiers who had died or been wounded, the former vice president said there had been 6,114 “military Covid deaths” and 118,984 “military Covid [infections].”

Facts First: This is wrong – and not just by a little. Biden overstated the number of military Covid deaths by 6,107 and infections by nearly 79,000. There have been seven deaths in the military due to Covid-19 and 40,026 cases as of September 9, according to the Defense Department…

On Wednesday, he denied ever calling for a mandate and claimed he was a “constitutionalist.” He said he would ask governors, mayors, county executives – anyone in authority – to impose one.

Feds Paid Social Security To Woman Who Died In 1971; Almost $460,000 In Checks – Washington Times

The Social Security Administration was still paying benefits this year to a woman who died nearly 50 years ago, and her nephew had been cashing the checks – collecting a staggering $459,000 over the years, federal prosecutors said Tuesday.

The government also paid out a $1,200 coronavirus stimulus check this year to the woman, who, according to records, would have been 114 years old – the second-oldest person on Social Security.

In actuality, the woman, identified only as AV in court documents, died in Brooklyn in 1971. The government began paying Social Security benefits six years later, in 1977.

The woman was listed as filing a change of address form in 1989, nearly two decades after her death, said Scott Jones, a special agent for the Social Security Administration’s inspector general who investigated the case.

Leftist Hellhole Update: Uber And Lyft Say They May Shut Down In California If Forced To Classify Drivers As Employees – Marketwatch

Uber Technologies Inc. and Lyft Inc. warned Wednesday of plans to potentially shut down their operations in California if they are forced to recognize drivers as employees in the state.

The two companies are appealing a judge’s ruling requiring drivers to be classified as employees instead of contractors. The judge gave Uber and Lyft 10 days to file an appeal before his order goes into effect.

Uber UBER CEO Dara Khosrowshahi warned Wednesday in an interview on MSNBC that the company’s ride-hailing service could shut down in California until November as a result.

DemoNazi-Controlled Seattle City Council Approves Insane Plan To Defund Police, Lay Off 100 Cops, Slash Salaries – Breitbart

Half A Million Incorrect Absentee Ballot Applications Sent Across Virginia, Including To Dead People – Just The News

A non-profit group says more than a half-million inaccurate applications for absentee ballots were mistakenly sent across Virginia this week – including to dead voters, errant relatives and even a pet – in an unprecedented mailing flub that has heightened concerns about the integrity of expanding mail-in voting efforts.

President Trump Signs Executive Orders Suspending Payroll Taxes, Extending Unemployment Benefits, Defering Student Loan Payments And Extending The Evictions Moratorium – CNBC

President Donald Trump on Saturday signed a series of executive orders expanding coronavirus economic relief to Americans struggling during the pandemic. The president’s four orders extend unemployment benefits, provide a payroll tax holiday, defer student loan payments through 2020 and extend the federal moratorium on evictions.

Trump’s orders will quickly face a legal challenge, as continuing the programs would require federal funding, which Congress controls.

“We’re going to save American jobs and provide relief to the American workers,” Trump said during a press conference at his private golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey.

Trump said he will establish a payroll tax holiday through the end of the year to Americans earning less than $100,000 per year and instruct the Treasury Department to allow employers to defer payment of the employee portion of certain payroll taxes. However, there’s no guarantee workers will receive that money…

DemoNazi Governor Of Oregon Caught Violating Her Own Mask Order – PJ Media

Oregon Governor Kate Brown (D-Portland) and her security detail appear to have violated Brown’s own mask mandate, according to a post that has gone viral on Facebook.

In addition, a member of that security detail, an Oregon state trooper, has yet to be publicly recognized for rescuing a teenage girl from drowning. A witness to the incident last Sunday is now demanding that the trooper be awarded a medal from the Oregon State Police, but so far Brown has not publicly acknowledged the heroic act by the police officer.

In an interview with PJ Media, the witness, a woman named Rebekah (she asked us not to include her last name out of fear of retaliation from Gov. Brown) described the scene. Rebekah brought her kids to a riverside park on a hot summer day to go swimming.

She happened upon Kate Brown and her Oregon State Police security detail on a trail next to the park in Marion County. None were wearing masks, despite a mid-July executive order requiring masks outdoors, not just inside public buildings…

Rape Suspect Released From Jail Over Covid-19 Concerns Murders His Accuser In Her Home – New York Post

A Virginia rape suspect was released from jail over coronavirus concerns – and then shot dead his accuser, authorities say.

Ibrahim E. Bouaichi, 33, of Greenbelt, Md., had been indicted on charges of rape, strangulation and abduction after Karla Dominguez, a native of Venezuela, told cops in Alexandria, Va., that he sexually assaulted her in October, the Washington Post said.

Bouaichi turned himself in 11 days later, and a judge ordered him held without bond. Then, despite objections by an Alexandria prosecutor, lawyers for the man, who was charged with six felonies, successfully argued on April 9 that he be released on $25,000 bond – with a condition that he only leave his Maryland residence to meet with lawyers or pretrial services officials, the newspaper said.

In their motion requesting bond, Bouaichi’s lawyers had argued that it was “impossible” to provide their client with adequate social distancing and other safety measures amid COVID-19 while behind bars, according to the report…

A team of engineers from the U.K. and Germany says a newly developed material could be a breakthrough for a wide range of industries requiring safety or protective equipment.

Proteus – named for the shape-shifting aquatic deity of Greek mythology – is the first manufactured material that cannot be cut, researchers from Durham University and the Fraunhofer Institute write in the journal Scientific Reports.

The lightweight substance consists of ceramic spheres surrounded by a cellular aluminum structure, which combine to render cutting tools – including angle grinders, drills, and high-pressure water jets – ineffective. Although video footage released by the team shows a blade narrowly penetrating the material, researchers say the ceramic components resist it indefinitely…

Take NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace, who imagined a noose the way the narrator in Edgar Allen Poe’s The Tell-Tale Heart imagined a droning beating heart. A hysterical black American creates unnecessary panic over a noose found in his garage; draws 15 FBI agents to investigate, at a total of tens of thousands of dollars in taxpayer money; investigation confirms the black American’s story was paranoia; FBI goes home; nothing happens to the black American for making a false accusation and creating unnecessary panic; continues to receive fawning press in the DMIC (Democrat Media Industrial Complex).

During that lawless destruction, the NYPD union president blamed Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.) and Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) for publicly attacking police and for not sending reinforcements to restore order. Now, at least one business is filing a lawsuit to hold them accountable.

Supreme Court Rules In Favor Of Religious Schools, Hospitals In Employment Discrimination Suit – Daily Wire

In the second of two religious freedom decisions issued by the Supreme Court Wednesday, the court determined that religious employers, including schools, hospitals, and social service organizations, are, in fact, exempt from some aspects of employment discrimination law, where that law conflicts with their closely held beliefs.

The 7-2 decision had the same breakdown as the Supreme Court’s contraception mandate decision; Chief Justice John Roberts sided with the court’s conservatives, as did Justices Elena Kagan and Stephen Breyer, and Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor dissented.

The case before the court involved two Catholic schools, St. James Catholic School and Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic School, that dismissed employees who later sued.

Religious institutions typically have a so-called “ministerial exemption” allowing them more leeway in hiring and firing and certain protection from employment discrimination suits, but the case before the Supreme Court ultimately tested whether there was a specific limit to that “ministerial exemption,”…

If America Is So Racist, Why Are There So Many Race Hoaxes? – Dennis Prager

As I wrote nearly three years ago: “Perhaps the second greatest libel – and certainly the most widespread – is that America is a racist country that oppresses its minorities and women.

But if America is so racist, why are there so many race hoaxes? Virtually every time we read about a swastika painted on a door, or a noose hanging from a tree to taunt blacks, it turns out to be either a false alarm or, more frequently, a hoax.

Frederick Douglass Statue Torn Down, Dumped Near Gorge In Rochester, NY – Poughkeepsie Journal

On the same weekend in which famed abolitionist Frederick Douglass 168 years ago delivered one of his most historically resonant speeches, a statue of Douglass was toppled from its base and left near the Genesee River gorge.

Located in Maplewood Park, the statue “had been placed over the fence to the gorge and was leaning against the fence” on the river side, according to a statement from Rochester police. The statue was left about 50 feet from its pedestal.

The base and lower part of the statue was damaged, as was a finger on the statue’s left hand.

There is historical significance to the timing of the vandalism – though no one can now say whether the timing was mere happenstance – just as there is historical significance to the statue’s very location.

Leftist Censorship Update: Google Demonetizes Zero Hedge – Zero Hedge

Because White People Are Bad – Steve Sailer

While it may seem as if America’s Establishment has suddenly gone insane, elites are just following out the inevitable logic of dogmas mandated decades ago.

As I’ve been pointing out for approaching thirty years now, the rationale of mainstream left-of-centrism eventually leads to some extraordinarily radical and impractical conclusions. The current craziness is rooted in ideas that seemed rather moderate when they first became mandatory.

A violent mob of rioters tearing down a statue in Albuquerque, New Mexico on Monday were filmed chasing a man down in the streets and attacking him with fists and a skateboard only for the man to shoot one in self-defense.

The media and Twitterati were reporting the story as a “white supremacist” attack on “peaceful protesters” but their narrative collapse after video surfaced showing the lynch mob chased the man down, pummeled him, threw him to the ground and bashed him with a skateboard. The man only then fired back in self-defense.

Researchers: Cheap Drug Improves Covid-19 Survival Rate – Breitbart

Researchers in England say they have the first evidence that a drug can improve COVID-19 survival: A cheap, widely available steroid reduced deaths by up to one third in severely ill hospitalized patients.

The results were announced Tuesday and the British government immediately authorized the drug’s use across the United Kingdom for coronavirus patients like those who did well in the study.

Researchers said they would publish results soon, and several independent experts said it’s important to see details to know how much of a difference the drug, dexamethasone, might make and for whom.

But “bottom line is, good news,” said the United States’ top infectious disease expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci. “This is a significant improvement in the available therapeutic options that we have.”…

Rep. Scalise Demands Answers From DemoNazi Governors Who Forced Covid-19 Patients Into Nursing Homes, Killing Thousands – Washington Wxaminer

Republican House Minority Whip Steve Scalise is pressing Democratic governors on requirements they set for nursing homes requiring them to readmit COVID-19 patients from hospitals, policies blamed for the high rates of deaths among residents.

“Just sent letters to the Democrat governors of NY, NJ, CA, PA, and MI demanding they explain why they ignored protocols and forced COVID-19 patients into nursing homes. The outcome was devastating. Families who lost loved ones deserve answers. This tragedy was avoidable,” tweeted Scalise, a Louisianian.

Nursing home deaths related to COVID-19 have reached 50,000, according to the Wall Street Journal. That’s about 42% of total COVID-19 deaths in the United States.

Scalise’s letter to Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer stated that his office was “seeking information, at a granular level, about the science and information used to inform your decision to mandate nursing homes and long-term care facilities admit untested and contagious COVID-19 patients from hospitals…

Entire South Florida SWAT Team Resigns After Cowardly Police Chief And Leftist Officials Take A Knee With Cop-Hating Protesters – Daily Mail

A south Florida police department’s entire SWAT team resigned Friday, citing the chief of police’s decision to take a knee with protesters calling for an investigation into a 2014 raid in which a black man was fatally shot.

The ten-person team handed over an angry letter of resignation to the Hallandale Beach police chief in which they took aim at Vice Mayor Sabrina Javellana for comparing them to the Minneapolis Police Department that killed George Floyd.

The letter also cited safety concerns over a lack of equipment and claimed that the ‘disdain’ of local officials meant the safety of police dogs was taken more seriously than the unit’s safety.

Bikers For Trump Planning To “Retake” Seattle Autonomous Zone For America – Big League Politics

“On July 4th, Independence Day,a coalition of patriot groups and all who want to join are going to retake the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone for America. antifa members are illegally occupying public property and terrorizing small businesses in the neighborhood.

Coronavirus ‘Does Not Spread Easily’ By Touching Surfaces Or Objects, CDC Now Says – USA Today

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has always warned that “it may be possible” to become infected with coronavirus by touching contaminated surfaces or objects. It just “does not spread easily” in that manner, the agency now says, nor by animal-to-human contact, or vice versa.

“COVID-19 is a new disease and we are still learning about how it spreads,” says the CDC’s recently updated guidelines. “It may be possible for COVID-19 to spread in other ways, but these are not thought to be the main ways the virus spreads.”

Dr. John Whyte, chief medical officer for the healthcare website WebMD, told Fox News that the CDC’s slight update brings clarity and helps to reduce fears.

“Many people were concerned that by simply touching an object they may get coronavirus and that’s simply not the case. Even when a virus may stay on a surface, it doesn’t mean that it’s actually infectious,” Whyte was quoted…

‘C’mon Man!’: Gropey Joe Claims That President Trump Taking Hydroxychloroquine Is Like Injecting Clorox Inro Your Veins – RedState

Feds Classifying All Coronavirus Patient Deaths As ‘Coved-19’ Deaths, Regardless Of Cause – New York Post

The federal government is classifying the deaths of patients infected with the coronavirus as COVID-19 deaths, regardless of any underlying health issues that could have contributed to the loss of someone’s life.

Dr. Deborah Birx, the response coordinator for the White House coronavirus task force, said the federal government is continuing to count the suspected COVID-19 deaths, despite other nations doing the opposite.

“There are other countries that if you had a pre-existing condition, and let’s say the virus caused you to go to the ICU [intensive care unit] and then have a heart or kidney problem,” she said during a Tuesday news briefing at the White House. “Some countries are recording that as a heart issue or a kidney issue and not a COVID-19 death.

“The intent is… if someone dies with COVID-19, we are counting that,” she added.

Asked whether the numbers could skew data the government is trying to collect, Birx said that would mostly apply more to rural areas…

Crazy Old Communist Drops Out Of Presidential Race – The Hill

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) suspended his presidential bid on Wednesday, ending a campaign that once appeared on track to dominate the Democratic nominating contest but that quickly lost momentum.

Sanders began reevaluating his campaign after a string of primary losses last month. But he continued his push for the nomination for weeks before ultimately telling his staff in a conference call on Wednesday morning that he had decided to drop out of the race.

His decision to suspend his campaign effectively paves the way for former Vice President Joe Biden to claim the Democratic presidential nomination. He had already amassed a nearly insurmountable delegate lead over Sanders…

Leftist Psychopathy Update: ACLU Helps Illegal Alien Child Molester And Immigrant Child Abuser Back Out On The Streets – Big League Politics

Thanks to a California federal judge’s action, six illegal aliens and legal immigrants convicted of child molestation, child abuse, drunk driving, and drug trafficking were released from prison.

United States District Court for the Central District of California Judge Terry Hatter Jr, a former President Jimmy Carter appointee, mandated the release of these prisoners.

The majority of these prisoners have been in Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody after receiving felony convictions. Some of these felonies include violent crimes committed against children.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which receives funding from billionaire oligarch George Soros, contends that the six illegal aliens and legal immigrants must be released due to the risk of them catching the Wuhan Virus while being held in ICE detention.

Gropey Joe Says The China Travel Ban He Initially Called “Hysterical Xenophobia” Should Have Happened Sooner – PJ Media

Last week, Joe Biden flip-flopped on President Trump’s travel ban with China, coming out in support of it after calling it “hysterical xenophobia” for two months.

Now, he’s trying to blame Trump for not implementing the ban sooner.

“You got to go faster than slower. And we started off awfully slow,” Biden said on ABC News’ This Week. “He indicated that I complimented him on – on dealing with China. Well, you know, 45 nations had already moved to keep – block China’s personnel from being able to come to the United States before the president moved,” Biden claimed. “So, it’s just – it’s about pace. It’s about – it’s about the urgency. And I don’t think there’s been enough of it, urgency.”

But, Biden’s claim that 45 other nations had already blocked Chinese nationals from coming into their countries is simply not true.

DemoNazi Governor Of Kentucky Vetoes Mandatory Voter ID For 2020 Election – Breitbart

The vaccine would be delivered on a fingertip-size patch. When tested on mice, the vaccine produced enough antibodies believed to successfully counteract the virus.

Man Teaching His Dog How To Drive Leads Cops On High-Speed Chase – Atlanta Journal Constitution

A Washington state man was arrested Sunday after allegedly leading state troopers on a high-speed chase with his dog sitting in the driver’s seat. According to the Washington State Patrol, Alberto Tito Alejandro, 51, of Lakewood, Washington, hit two cars while being chased by police.

Alejandro, according to Washington state trooper Heather Axtman, was driving “absolutely recklessly” and was the subject of several 911 calls. At one point, the high-speed chase up Interstate 5 reached 109 miles per hour, she said.

When one of the troopers attempted to corner Alejandro’s car, he looked inside and realized a pit bull was sitting in the driver’s seat while the suspect steered, Axtman said.

Thank The Second Amendment: Armed Hero Stops Possible Mass Shooting – Washington Examiner

America’s Superb, Unappreciated President – John Perazzo

It has been a very long time since Americans last saw such a clear distinction between the considerable leadership qualities of their president, and the shameless political maneuverings of an opposition party constantly lusting for power. Let us review exactly what has happened in this country over the past two months, vis-a-vis the coronavirus pandemic.

On January 29, President Donald Trump created a White House Coronavirus Task Force to coordinate the federal government’s response to the virus outbreak and to keep the American people as informed about it as possible.

At that time, you might recall, congressional Democrats were giving precisely ZERO attention to the coronavirus threat. They had not held even a single hearing – for even a single moment – about the matter.

Instead, they had spent the preceding four months entirely obsessed with one agenda item: impeaching President Trump and trying to remove him from office…

5th Circuit Court Of Appeals Lifts Bogus Injuction, Freeing Up $3.6 Billion For Construction Of Trump’s Border Wall – National Review
.

.
On Wednesday, a federal appellate court lifted an injunction by a lower court which had prevented $3.6 billion in military funds from being used for the construction of a barrier on the U.S.-Mexico border.

The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, based in New Orleans, ruled 2-1 to lift the injunction put in place in December by El Paso-based District Court Judge David Briones, a Clinton appointee.

The court’s two Republican appointees ruled that the plaintiffs in the suit – the city of El Paso and the Border Network for Human Rights – lacked the standing to challenge the administration’s use of the funds as an encroachment on Congress’s appropriation powers…

Not So Shocking Report: Record Number Of Guns Sold As Dems Vow To Disintegrate Rights – Zero Hedge

In a not so surprising report, the FBI conducted a record number of background checks for gun sales in 2019. All of these gun purchases ramp up every time democrats open their mouths voicing support to disintegrating the rights of the people.

The FBI carried out a record 28 million background checks on firearms purchases in 2019, as Americans rushed to buy weapons amid calls by wealthy elitists in Hollywood and Democrat politicians for tougher gun laws.

According to FBI data, 28,369,750 background checks were performed in 2019, smashing the previous record of 27 million in 2016. The agency ran 202,465 checks on Black Friday alone.

The Christmas period was a festive one for firearms retailers, with just under three million checks carried out in December, the second-highest month since the National Instant Criminal Background Check System began in 1998. – RT…

Dipshits Arrested For Gluing Winning Numbers Onto Lottery Ticket – New York Post

Two men in Mississippi wanted to claim a $100,000 lottery prizes so bad, they glued the winning numbers onto a losing ticket, authorities said.

The ticket was immediately determined to have been altered using glue to paste on the winnings numbers to match the prize. The lottery agency called the Flowood Police Department about two adult males allegedly trying to claim the ticket.

Latham and Sparks were arrested at the lottery headquarters and have been charged with conspiracy to commit a felony and uttering a counterfeit instrument over $1,000. Latham was also charged with false identification information.

Iran is facing mounting pressure to explain the destruction of a civilian airliner near Tehran hours after Iranian forces launched missile strikes against U.S. forces.

Private Payrolls Soar: 202,000 Jobs Added In December – Breitbart

The U.S. private sector added 202,000 positions in December, according to an estimate from ADP and Moody’s Analytics. This far outpaced the 150,000 new hires forecast by economists. In addition, ADP revised its November estimate dramatically higher, from 67,000 to 160,000.

The report suggests that the labor market ended 2019 in a position of rising strength. The Labor Department will release its report on the jobs situation on Friday. Economists expect that to show a gain of 160,000 private and public sector jobs.

Medium sized businesses, those with between 50 and 499 employees, led the way in job growth, adding 88,000 jobs. Larger businesses added 69,000 and smaller firms added 45,000, ADP/Moody’s said.

Despite the very high number of new positions in December, Moody’s Analytics chief economist Mark Zandi said that job gains “continue to moderate.”

A Pentagon spokesperson later confirmed missiles were fired at two or more Iraqi bases with American and coalition forces.

That’ll probably be too much for even the Democrats and they’ll start looking to the next in line, which has been Sanders since the beginning of the year.

Senator Hawley Introduces Resolution To Dismiss “Bogus Impeachment” Charges Against Trump – National Review

Senator Josh Hawley (R., Mo.) on Monday introduced a resolution to update Senate rules and dismiss the “bogus impeachment” against President Trump if House Speaker Nancy Pelosi continues to delay in sending impeachment articles to the Senate for a trial.

“Speaker Pelosi started this bogus impeachment by claiming President Trump was an urgent ‘threat to democracy’ who had to be removed now,” Hawley said in a press release. “But after a bipartisan vote against the articles in the House, and with the public opposed to the Democrats’ partisan games, Pelosi has changed her tune.”

“… If Speaker Pelosi is afraid to try her case, the articles should be dismissed for failure to prosecute and Congress should get back to doing the people’s business,” he added.

Authorities said the evidence against Reynhard Sinaga, 36, indicates he had many more victims: Roughly 195 men were filmed while being abused in his apartment. Many were unconscious.

Judge Suzanne Goddard said in Manchester Crown Court the true number of Sinaga’s victims may never be known.

42 Million Babies Were Aborted In 2019, Becoming Leading Worldwide Cause Of Death – Big League Politics

According to the tracking service, Worldometers, 42 million abortions were carried out around the world in 2019. For another year, abortion became the leading cause of death in the world.

As of December 31, Worldometers recorded 42.4 million abortions, which represented more than half the total number of deaths by every other cause (58.6 million). Lifesite News reported that abortions “dwarfed every individual cause of death, including overall deaths due to disease (13 million).”

However, the true total number of abortions is murky because Worldometers uses statistics on health and mortality from the World Health Organization (WHO), which then relies on figures from the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute.

Green Psychosis Update: UK Police Wasted £1.5 Million On Electric Cars That Can’t Chase Criminals – Breitbart

Police forces in the United Kingdom have squandered over a million pounds on electric cars that are incapable of chasing criminals or performing emergency services because the eco-friendly vehicles are too slow and take too long to charge.

A freedom of information request found that police in the UK have spent £1.49 million on 448 green cars and vans. However, the actual cost of the eco-police fleets is likely much higher as many districts have not reported their purchases.

The official police reports admit that the battery-powered cars are incapable of fulfilling police duties such as chasing criminals or handling emergency response situations and often run out of power before a shift ends.

The vehicles are used almost exclusively in non-emergency situations or to drive police chiefs to work, reports the Daily Mail. The Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) has bought dozens of electric cars…

Sorry Democrats: New Zealand’s Gun Confiscation Program Just Failed Miserably – Washington Examiner

Almost every Democrat running for president supports so-called “gun buybacks.” Too bad they don’t work.

Proposals range from Joe Biden’s voluntary gun buybacks to the more radical mandatory confiscation proposed by Cory Booker. (He still misleadingly calls it a “buyback.”) So it’s worth examining how such buybacks played out recently in New Zealand, which passed a ban on the sale of semiautomatic weapons and a mandatory gun buyback program after a tragic shooting in April.

The deadline for the mandatory gun buyback program was Friday. The New Zealand program successfully led to the compensated confiscation of 51,000 of the targeted firearms. But as the left-leaning Guardian newspaper reports, this is out of an estimated 170,000 such guns currently in circulation. And there are still a minimum of 1.2 million legally owned firearms in New Zealand on top of that.

This means that many people ignored the demand that they turn in their guns and trust the supposedly benevolent government to protect them from themselves…

Winning: President Trump Adds Two GOP Judges To 9th Circuit Court Of Appeals – One America News

The Year Socialism Became A Dirty Word… Again – Flavia Krause-Jackson

It was a bad year to be any kind of socialist in Europe. The decline has been long and agonizing for a once-dominant force, but in 2019 falling popularity reached new depths and raised questions over whether reinvention can lead to a revival.

A decade ago, the prime ministers of Britain, Spain, Greece and even Hungary were from the center-left. Many went on to swiftly lose power, but then socialist governments emerged in France and Italy. Now the political brand looks like an anachronism.

Populism has tested the ability of mainstream parties to adapt and some on the center-right are regaining their footing. That cannot be said of the traditional left. It gravitated toward the middle ground in the 1990s, and then paid a price for selling out. But a pendulum swing to 1970s-style radical ideology has been shown to be just as out of sync with the times.

This year ends with the humiliation of the Labour Party in the U.K.’s Dec. 12 election and Germany’s Social Democrats more unpopular than at any time in living memory…

Boeing has fired its CEO, Dennis A. Muilenburg, and will replace him with its current chairman, David L. Calhoun. A new press release from the company claims that Muilenburg had resigned, but that same press release also says that it was the board’s decision. In short: Muilenburg got fired.

“The Board of Directors decided that a change in leadership was necessary to restore confidence in the Company moving forward as it works to repair relationships with regulators, customers, and all other stakeholders,” the press release reads.

Three Ukrainian Officials Swear Under Oath That Ukraine Interfered In The 2016 U.S. Election Against Donald Trump – Gateway Pundit

The liberal #FakeNews mainstream media continues to play defense for Democrats insisting that Ukraine did NOT interfere in the 2016 US presidential election. Of course, this is fake news.

The Gateway Pundit was the first publication to interview Ukrainian whistleblower and former embassy official Andrii Telizhenko back in December 2018. In early 2016 Telizhenko was approached by DNC operative Alexandra Chalupa. She is still working at the DNC. She wanted dirt on Trump and his campaign manager Paul Manafort.

The Ukrainian embassy in Washington DC worked VERY CLOSELY with DNC operative and Hillary supporter Alexandra Chalupa. Chalupa told Andrii she wanted Russian “dirt” on the Trump campaign.

Mueller has no interest in hearing Andrii’s story. It doesn’t fit his narrative. Mueller and his angry Democrat lawyers are not interested in the truth. They only want to destroy Trump…

A Minnesota Muslim criminal has received a $120,000 cash reward after she refused to remove her hijab for a mugshot while detained at a jail in Ramsey County.

Muslim Police Officer, Hired To Promote Diversity, Ends Up Being Part Of Child Sex Trafficking Gang – Zero Hedge

A Muslim police officer in the United Kingdom who was hired to promote diversity ended up being part of a grooming gang that sex trafficked children.

Ditta was appointed in 2016 as a diversity officer “to boost numbers of Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) people applying to join the force” after then Prime Minister Theresa May said the number of black and Asian officers in the UK was “simply not good enough.”

Upon his appointment, Ditta said the police force should reflect the community it serves in terms of diversity. Three years later and it emerges that Ditta abused his position to target teenage girls. He has now been suspended from duty.

The other men arrested as part of the sex trafficking sting include Vaqaas Abbas, Nadeem Adalat, Sajid Adalat, Vaseem Adalat, Amjad Ditta, Christopher Eastwood, Metab Islam, Mohammed Rizwan Iqbal, Ishtiaq Latif, Asad Mahmood, Arfan Mir, Younis Mohammed aka Younis Khan, Nadeem Nassir, Shahzad Nawaz, Shazad Nazir, and Sohail Zafar…

New York Cops Frame Innocent Brothers For Cocaine Possession, Try To Destroy Video Evidence – Washington Standard

To all those who make the bogus claim of “if you don’t do anything wrong, you have nothing to worry about,” consider the following case as even more evidence of how ridiculous that assertion is.

Two innocent brothers were framed by NYPD cops who were caught on video destroying video evidence of their egregious act. Luckily for the brothers, the hard drive in the video recorder survived and it caught these badged criminals in the act.

Earlier this year, apparent criminals with the NYPD’s gang unit executed a search warrant on a store owned by two brothers. The entrepreneurs had committed no crime, were conducting 100% legal business, yet they were kidnapped by officers and caged for over a month on false charges.

The cops accused the brothers of having a large amount of cocaine and when they were booked into jail, the DA’s office provided no documentation and asked for the two brothers to be held without bail…

Stockholm: Elderly Residents Kicked Out Of Apartments To Make Way For Migrants – Zero Hedge

Dozens of elderly residents were forced to leave their apartments in an area of Stockholm after the block was closed, only to be re-opened again for migrants to replace them.

The incident unfolded when Kosoian was at the Montmorency Metro station. As this innocent woman rode the escalator, a police officer – who just knew he had found himself a hardened criminal hellbent on burning down society for not holding a handrail – targeted her for extortion and kidnapping.

The officer pointed out that Kosoian was disobeying a pictograph with the instruction “Hold the handrail.” Knowing that she had done nothing wrong, Kosoian flexed her rights and refused to comply with the officer’s unlawful stop and refused to identify herself.

Trump Administration Moves To End Food Stamps For 700,000 Able-Bodied Americans – Bloomberg

The Trump administration will announce a plan Wednesday to end food stamps benefits for more than 700,000 Americans, issuing a new regulation that makes it harder for states to gain waivers from a requirement that beneficiaries work or participate in a vocational training program, according to people familiar with the matter.

Conservatives have long sought cuts in the federal food assistance program for the poor. House Republicans tried to impose similar restrictions last year when Congress renewed the program but were rebuffed in the Senate.

The work requirement covers “able-bodied” recipients. A U.S. Department of Agriculture spokeswoman said it doesn’t apply to recipients who are over 50, disabled or pregnant, or anyone with a child under 18.

Our repeat mistakes involve declaring that Trump’s claims are “lies” when they are matters of opinion, or when the truth between conflicting sources is unknowable; taking Trump’s statements and events out of context; reporting secondhand accounts against Trump without attribution as if they’re established fact; relying on untruthful, conflicted sources; and presenting reporter opinions in news stories – without labeling them as opinions.

“There’s no question that the members of Congress that [Mr. Trump] called out have absolutely said anti-American and anti-Semitic things,” Mr. Abraham tweeted Monday. “I’ll pay for their tickets out of this country if they just tell me where they’d rather be.”

Mr. Trump sparked outrage on Sunday after he declared that the “progressive Democratic congresswomen” who “loudly and viciously” criticize the country should “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.”…

Federal Judge Bars Roger Stone From Posting On Facebook, Instagram, Twitter – PJ Media

Federal Judge Amy Berman Jackson issued an order Tuesday barring Roger Stone from posting on social media, specifically Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. She justified the social media ban by claiming Stone broke the terms of a court-imposed gag order by posting on social media and reaching out to a BuzzFeed reporter to speak about his case.

“I’ve twice given you the benefit of the doubt. Your lawyer had to… twist himself into a pretzel to argue that these posts didn’t cross the line,” Jackson said, CNN reported. “The goal has been to draw maximum attention.”

Jackson presented multiple posts from the past few months drawing attention to his case. She had barred Stone from making public statements about his case in February after he posted a photo fo the judge with crosshairs behind her head on Instagram.

He apologized to Jackson, but she warned him of severe consequences if he crossed the line again. He had been indicted in January on charges of working with WikiLeaks to interfere in the 2016 election…

The Trump administration declared Monday that taxpayer-funded clinics must stop referring women for abortions effective immediately.

The Department of Health and Human Services has alerted clinics that they will be enforcing the Trump administration ban, according to CBS.

The rules now require that organizations that perform abortions and make abortion referrals will have to do so in separate buildings from those that receive Title X federal funds – a move could potentially cost Planned Parenthood “tens of millions of federal family planning dollars,” according to Politico…

Leftist Treason Update: Public University Shares ‘Toolkit’ To Combat ‘Trump’s Deportation Machinery’ – Campus Reform

The University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign’s Gender and Women’s Studies department advertised an “ICE Raid Toolkit” meant to aid illegal immigrants in evading deportation.

The toolkit was posted to the department’s public Facebook page, shortly after a post calling Trump’s ICE initiative “bullshit.” In yet another post on Monday, the Gender and Women’s Studies department shared an image which suggested Trump is a “racist” and a “rapist.”

The toolkit shared by the university was developed by the Immigrant Defense Project and the Center for Constitutional Rights in order to help individuals “prepare to fight back against the increase in ICE policing under the Trump administration.” It compiles tactics and information utilized by these organizations during the Bush and Obama administrations in order to “continue to develop strategies to fight back against Trump’s ramped up deportation machinery.”

Kentucky Set To Remove Up To 250,000 Inactive Voters As Part Of Court Consent Judgment With Judicial Watch – Judicial Watch

Tommy Robinson And The Death Of Britain – Robert Spencer

As Tommy Robinson headed into court for his sentencing Thursday, he wore a t-shirt that read: “Convicted of Journalism.” And it’s true. Tommy Robinson is heading back to jail for doing what journalists routinely do: ask questions of defendants heading into courtrooms.

The gaggle of establishment media journalists who peppered Tommy himself with questions as he entered the court have not been arrested.

British authorities claimed that Tommy Robinson had prejudiced the outcome of the trial of several members of a Muslim rape gang. This is arrant nonsense: the trial had been completed, and Tommy was asking them what they thought of their having been convicted.

There was, however, a gag order on the proceedings, and it was on the basis of the claim that Tommy violated that gag order that he is now back in prison.

Why was the gag order put into place? The obvious reason is that the British government and law enforcement authorities are deeply embarrassed by their abysmal record in dealing with Muslim rape gangs…

Federal Judge Destroys Key Mueller Claim: Indictment Of A Russian “Troll Farm” Is Not Proof Of One – Washington Standard

In what could be the final nail in the Russiagate hoax’s coffin, a federal judge has destroyed a key claim made by Robert Mueller. A federal judge ruled that Mueller’s indictment of a “troll farm” is not actual proof of it.

Mueller’s charges against Concord Management & Consulting, the Russian company accused of running a “troll farm” and “sowing discord” on social media in the United States back in 2016 during the presidential election, do not establish a link between that private company and the Russian government, U.S. District Judge Dabney L. Friedrich pointed out.

Winning: Trump Set To Slap Illegal Aliens With $500,000 Fines For Ignoring Deportation Orders – Big League Politics

The Trump administration is preparing to issue whopping $500,000 fines to illegal immigrants who have refused to comply with orders to leave the country, according to new reporting from NPR.

The fines would apply to some illegal migrants who have ignored orders of deportation for years.

Judgments against the scofflaws could make it much harder for them to remain illegally in the country, as the court system would have the power to impose wage garnishments and other penalties to recoup the cost of the hefty fine.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has the power to levy fines against individuals held in contempt of immigration law.

The Immigration and Nationality Act states that ICE can impose fines “on aliens who have been ordered removed or granted voluntary departure and fail to depart the United States.”…

Right On Cue, Leftist Judge Blocks Ohio Law Banning Abortions On Babies With Beating Hearts – LifeNews

Ohio may not enforce its new law banning abortions after an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable, a federal judge ruled Wednesday. The preliminary injunction issued by U.S. District Judge Michael Barrett in Cincinnati is in response to a lawsuit by Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union, Cleveland.com reports.

“This Court concludes that (the law) places an ‘undue burden’ on a woman’s right to choose a pre-viability abortion, and, under [Planned Parenthood v. Casey], Plaintiffs are certain to succeed on the merits of their claim,” Barrett wrote.

The heartbeat law prohibits abortions after an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable, about six weeks of pregnancy. Because many women do not even know they are pregnant at this early stage, the legislation could protect almost all unborn babies in Ohio. Gov. Mike DeWine signed the law in April.

The ruling comes as no surprise, and state leaders almost certainly will challenge it…

It Turns Out A Russian Oligarch Paid The Man Hired By Hillary Clinton To Claim Trump Colluded With Russia – Daily Wire

How Obamacare Blew Up The Student Loan Crisis – Tiana Lowe

What they and every other statist and socialist eager to default on trillions owed to taxpayers forget that President Barack Obama nationalizing student loans brought us to this catastrophe in the first place.

Lost in the kerfuffle and fuming of the Affordable Care Act’s passage in 2010 was the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act, signed into law just seven days after Obamacare.

Half of the act consisted of small and otherwise innocuous amendments to the ill-fated Affordable Care Act, but the other half, Title II, radically overhauled the country’s student loan industry, replacing federally backed bank loans with direct government lending.

The private student loan industry was already dysfunctional and never truly private. The largest private student loan lender, Sallie Mae, originated as a government-sponsored lender, and the government-subsidized market only emerged out of a small but much older federal student loan market…

Leftist-Run City Council In Thomas Jefferson’s Hometown Votes To Stop Celebrating His Birthday – Washington Examiner

WikiLeaks’ Assange Sentenced To 50 Weeks In Jail For Jumping Bail In 2012 – Daily Caller

A British court sentenced WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to 50 weeks in prison Wednesday for jumping bail in 2012.

The court sentenced the 47-year-old Assange to 50 weeks in prison for jumping bail and fleeing to the Ecuadorian Embassy in London after Sweden requested his extradition following sexual assault allegations, according to WaPo. This made him guilty of breaching the Bail Act, according to BBC.

Assange’s lawyer Mark Summers argued at the trial that Assange violated bail out of reasonable fear for his safety. Summers told London’s Southwark Crown Court that Assange was “living under overwhelming fear of rendition” and believed that if he were extradited to Sweden he would be extradited to the United States and possibly to Guantanamo Bay, according to the Washington Post.

A few weeks ago, the Chicago Cubs banned a fan for playing the Circle Game on live TV. Supposedly, making a circle with your thumb and forefinger, commonly known as the “OK sign,” is now an indicator of white supremacy. Except, of course, it’s no such thing.

The Cubs fell for a dumb hoax perpetrated by some Internet pranksters who wanted to see if they could trick people into believing that the most innocuous gesture in the world is actually bad. It worked.

Another pack of rubes in Chicago just fell for the same hoax, and it’s going to cost them a pretty penny. Steve Schering, Chicago Tribune:

The Oak Park and River Forest High School board has decided to reprint the 2018-2019 yearbook after more than a dozen photos of students engaging in the “circle game” were discovered inside.

The high school will pay Jostens $53,794 to reprint the yearbooks…

Donald Trump escalated his confrontation with House Democrats over their efforts to investigate his presidency, declaring he’d refuse to work with them on bipartisan policies including an infrastructure plan unless they halt their probes.

“Get these phony investigations over with,” Trump said he told House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on Wednesday at the White House. Democrats said he stormed out of a scheduled meeting without letting them talk.

Minutes later, reporters were abruptly summoned to the White House Rose Garden, where a podium had been prepared for Trump to speak. He led off a lengthy, unscripted statement by complaining that Pelosi had accused him of conducting a “cover-up.”…

DemoNazis Tied To Obama’s Pro-Iran ‘Echo Chamber’ Spread Terror Regime’s Anti-Trump Talking Points – Washington Free Beacon

A cadre of former top Obama administration figures and their allies in Congress have been working to amplify anti-Trump talking points issued by a senior Iranian regime official in what sources have described as an effort by Obama’s pro-Iran echo chamber to drive a wedge between President Donald Trump and his national security team.

As tensions mount between the United States and Iran, leading Democrats have become embroiled in controversy for widely repeating anti-Trump talking points first issued by Iran’s hardline regime.

Additionally, former top officials from the Obama administration have taken to social media and other outlets to push a narrative that Trump is at odds with his hawkish National Security Adviser John Bolton over how far to go in punishing Tehran for its global support of terrorism and continued efforts to secure contested nuclear technology.

The effort to push this narrative to the media has gained steam following a war of words between Trump and Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif…

NY Times: ‘Pregnancy Kills. Abortion Saves Lives’ – Breitbart

The New York Times has launched a full-court press on behalf of the abortion industry with an op-ed titled: “Pregnancy Kills. Abortion Saves Lives.”

Written by Warren M. Hern, who specializes in performing late-term abortions, the article asserts that every pregnancy poses a “serious health risk” to the mother.

“Pregnancy always comes with some irreducible risk of death,” Dr. Hern warns, whereas “abortion can be lifesaving.”

In his essay, Dr. Hern is reacting to the new Alabama law that significantly limits abortions in that state, suggesting that what legislators are restricting is a lifesaving procedure.

“Alabama’s new law claims that it does not prohibit abortion if there is a ‘reasonable medical judgment’ that the pregnancy poses a ‘serious health risk’ to the woman,” Hern notes. “But pregnancy itself poses a ‘serious health risk’ – including the risk of dying and losing all bodily functions.”…

Trump Calls For Investigation Into Biden Family’s Links To Chinese Regime – Epoch Times

‘Save Chick-Fil-A’ Bill Passed By Texas House – Fox News

“The bill as filed ensures religious beliefs are protected from discrimination. It’s about the First Amendment and freedom of speech, freedom of religion – those uniquely American rights,” bill author Sen. Bryan Hughes (R-Mineola) said of the legislation.

The policy would prevent the government from penalizing businesses for exercising their religious rights, a conversation that began after Chick-fil-A was barred from opening a location at the San Antonio Airport.

‘American Taliban’ John Walker Lindh Scheduled To Be Released Thursday – National Review

This week brings an amazing milestone: Johnny Walker Lindh, the “American Taliban” who was captured in Afghanistan by U.S. forces and Northern Alliance allies shortly after 9/11, is scheduled to be released from prison Thursday.

Lindh was sentenced to 20 years in prison but he is getting an early release for good behavior.

Last month, a federal judge in Virginia ordered that Lindh, 38, can’t have an internet-capable device without permission from his probation office, can’t view or access extremist or terrorism videos, and must allow the probation office to monitor his internet use.

But there are some ominous signs that Lindh hasn’t changed his tune much at all. Foreign Policy magazine reported in 2017 that the National Counterterrorism Center concluded, “As of May 2016, John Walker Lindh (USPER) – who is scheduled to be released in May 2019 after being convicted of supporting the Taliban – continued to advocate for global jihad and to write and translate violent extremist texts.”…

Why Freedom Of Speech Should Apply To Google, Facebook And The Internet – Daniel Greenfield

“But, it’s a private company.”

In a FOX Business editorial, Iain Murray writes that breaking up dot coms like Google would be “a repudiation of conservative principles”. He argues that “Twitter is a private company” and that “there is no positive right to free speech on Twitter or any other private venue.”

“The same goes for the president’s attacks on Google and the complaints of conservative censorship,” Diane Katz writes at the Heritage Institute. “These private enterprises are not obligated to abide any sort of partisan fairness doctrine.”

Barr has appointed John Durham for the assignment, according to the New York Times. Durham has a history of investigating potential wrongdoing among national security officials.

Barr sent shockwaves through Washington after he acknowledged earlier this year during a hearing that he would review the origins of the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign, and again when he referred to those activities as “spying.”

Specifically, he has said he wants to review whether the FBI had appropriate predicate for spying on the Trump campaign, for example, when it sought a surveillance warrant against former campaign adviser Carter Page.

Barr’s assignment of Durham may indicate that his review of the origins warrants further investigation and action…

A preliminary U.S. assessment indicates Iran was likely behind the attack that caused “significant damage” to two Saudi oil tankers on Sunday, according to a new report.

A U.S. official told the Wall Street Journal that the early findings in the ongoing analysis show Iran was likely behind the attack that occurred near the Persian Gulf as the two vessels were attempting to head into the Persian Gulf through the Strait of Hormuz.

Saudi energy minister Khalid al-Falih announced the vessels were attacked on Sunday along with at least two other oil-industry vessels. He also said that one of the ships was traveling to a Saudi port in the Persian Gulf to load oil that would head to the U.S.

Few details were offered, but Saudi officials said the engine on the tanker caught fire…

School District In Washington State Caught Giving Muslim Students “Special Privileges” And Teaching Lessons On Ramadan – Gateway Pundit

Here we go again – Islam, with the help of Hamas front group CAIR is creeping into public schools in Washington state and parents are fighting back.

A cease and desist letter was sent to a school district in Washington state that pushed Islam onto students and was promoted through a Ramadan policy that gave Muslim students ‘special status.’

This is the second school district that has been caught promoting this ridiculous Ramadan policy just in the last week – and surprise, surprise, the ‘Ramadan policy’ was recommended by terror-tied CAIR [Council on American Islamic Relations].

CAIR also suggested that teachers greet students in Arabic (Islamic supremacy) as part of the Ramadan policy.

Supreme Court Rules iPhone Users Can Sue Apple Over Alleged App Monopoly – PJ Media

On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that iPhone users can sue Apple over its alleged monopoly on iPhone apps. Apple argued that users cannot bring the lawsuit because the company is only selling the apps at the prices set by app developers.

This kind of lawsuit brings triple damages against the company. Justice Brett Kavanaugh wrote the majority opinion, representing himself and the four liberals on the Court. Justice Neil Gorsuch wrote the dissenting opinion, representing himself and the three other conservatives.

“Several customers contend that Apple charges too much for apps. The customers argue, in particular, that Apple has monopolized the retail market for the sale of apps and has unlawfully used its monopolistic power to charge consumers higher-than-competitive prices,” Kavanaugh wrote. He called this “a classic antitrust claim.”

The Supreme Court majority did not “assess the merits of the plaintiffs’ antitrust claims against Apple,” and only focused on one defense from Apple…

L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti Will “Tackle” Homelessness By Painting Murals Of Homeless People – Washington Standard

The mayor of Los Angeles, a city with a burgeoning homeless population, wants to “help” by painting murals of those who don’t have permanent homes. Only in Los Angeles could an idea so ridiculous be hailed as a means to “tackle” the homeless crisis gripping our nation.

Eric Garcetti, the mayor of LA, outlined his new plan to tackle the region’s skyrocketing homeless population this week. Garcetti said we must now “recognize our common humanity” with murals “highlighting” his city’s escalating housing crisis.

The nation’s second largest city has an estimated 50,000 people living on the streets as rising rents and increased crime threaten to make the crisis worse in the coming months.

“To end homelessness, we have to recognize our common humanity. The #DearNeighborLA murals send a strong message of support for housing homeless Angelenos. The first mural highlights LaShawn, a homeless mother in South L.A. who is working to provide for her son,” posted the Mayor on social media…

Six Reasons Why You Should Ignore The UN’s Species Extinction Report – James Delingpole

Here is why you shouldn’t take it seriously. It’s politics, not science.

The Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES), which produced the report, is a political organisation not a scientific one. Just like its sister organisation the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change – IPCC – in fact.

As Donna Laframboise notes here, both exist purely to give a fig leaf of scientific credibility to the UN’s ‘sustainability’ agenda.

When the IPBES was established in 2010, we were informed point blank that its purpose was “to spearhead the battle against the destruction of the natural world.”

Appeals Court Rules Trump Can Send Asylum Seekers To Mexico – Daily Caller

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday that President Donald Trump has the authority to send asylum seekers to Mexico as they wait for the United States to adjudicate their claims, handing the president a big win on immigration policy.

The “Remain in Mexico” policy seeks to curb catch-and-release by denying fraudulent asylum seekers the incentive of being released into the interior of the U.S. while their cases proceed in immigration courts.

The circuit court overruled an earlier decision by San Francisco Judge Richard Seeborg, who blocked Trump’s policy on the grounds that the administration was making the asylum process too difficult and could be putting migrants at further risk by demanding they stay in Mexico.

The Ninth Circuit temporarily issued a stay in mid-April while they reviewed the case, allowing the Trump administration to continue the policy until further notice…

Feds: 1 In 4 Inmates Are Foreign-Born, Costing U.S. Taxpayers $1.4 Billion Annually – Breitbart

About one in four federal inmates are either an illegal alien, legal immigrant, or suspected foreign-born criminal, a new federal report concludes.

In total, there were nearly 240,000 inmates in the federal prison system as of 2018, a Department of Justice (DOJ) report finds. Of that total, nearly 60,000 of those prisoners were illegal aliens and legal immigrants who have been ordered to be deported, were in proceedings to be deported, or were currently under investigation by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to confirm their foreign-born status.

This dictates that about one in four – or about 25 percent – federal inmates are born outside the U.S. and came to the country either illegally or legally.

In Bureau of Prisons (BOP) custody, alone, foreign-born prisoners account for more than 20 percent of the total federal prison population. This confirms that about one in five federal inmates in BOP custody are foreign-born…

Londoners’ morning commute was particularly disrupted after the protesters climbed on top of a Docklands Light Railway (DLR) train in East London…

Did Muslims Start The Notre Dame Fire? – Reverend Austin Miles

Why has no other writer asked this question? Simply because most are afraid to. When someone tried to bring up this subject with Shepherd Smith, the gay news anchor got in the way and would not allow the question to be pursued.

That surprised me. He of all people should have welcomed the discussion since Muslims not only hate gays, but believe they are all condemned and throw them off the roofs of buildings feeling that they should all die. This is part of their culture.

This writer WILL pursue the Notre Dame fire. First of all, how many know that the week preceding the Notre Dame fire, 12 French churches had been torched? That news was smothered.

This was all possibly planned, building up to the grand finale to show Islamic superiority by staging an event as earth shattering as 9-11 which brought them the notoriety they coveted as well as causing widespread fear…

All Men Are Rapists According To Swedish Politician – Big League Politics

Swedish Member of Parliament Linda Snecker has been called out for her recent statement where she declared that women “assume that all men are rapists.” Then she said that “the violence of men must be stopped” and urged that men take “collective responsibility” for perpetuating rape.

In a speech about the rising degree of violent crime in Sweden, Snecker said “Men’s violence against women governs the entire world structure.” The member of the Left Party then capped her speech off with, “That is why the struggle of feminism is everyone’s struggle. The violence of men must be stopped.”

Nearly $1 Billion Raised So Far To Rebuild Notre Dame Cathedral – WRAL

Nearly $1 billion has already poured in from ordinary worshippers and high-powered magnates around the world to restore the fire-ravaged Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, after the French president set a controversial five-year deadline to get the work done.

Construction teams brought in a huge crane and a delivery of planks of wood to the site Wednesday morning. Firefighters are still examining damage and shoring up the structure after Monday’s fire collapsed the cathedral’s spire and destroyed the roof.

French President Emmanuel Macron ratcheted up the pressure by setting a five-year deadline to restore the 12th-century landmark. Macron is holding a special Cabinet meeting Wednesday dedicated to the Notre Dame disaster, which investigators believe was an accident possibly linked to renovation work.

Bells will toll at cathedrals around France on Wednesday evening in honor of the monument. Remarkably, no one was killed in the fire, after firefighters and church officials speedily evacuated the site during a mass…

Should Senator Cory Booker Pay Slavery Reparations To Himself? – Daniel Greenfield

New York Mayor De Blasio Threatens To Sue If Trump Sends Illegal Aliens To His Sanctuary City – Breitbart

40-Year-Old Man Sues Parents For Destroying His Porn Collection – Daily Caller

Man Gets 6 Months In Prison After Cashing Dead Mom’s Social Security Checks… For 37 Years – Zero Hedge

A Detroit man has been sentenced to six months in prison (plus three years on probation) for cashing 37 years’ worth of his dead mother’s social security checks – accruing more than $280,000 in benefits to which he wasn’t entitled.

Though his neighbor, Reginald Carpenter, said he tried to do the right thing by notifying the authorities (“but the checks just kept coming”), 76-year-old Walter Terrell had cashed his mother’s checks, despite the fact that she had been dead since 1981.

The scheme was uncovered after Medicare tried to contact his mother to ask why her benefits hadn’t been used. Though Terrell tried to keep them at bay by telling them that his mother was away or on vacation when they called or tried to check on her, he was eventually found out, according to Fox 10.

Then just 20 years old, he was among a group of Taliban fighters who were captured by U.S. forces.

President Trump Visits The Last Tank Plant In America, Which He Helped Save – Forbes

President Trump’s visit this week to the Army’s sole surviving tank plant in Lima, Ohio is the first such presidential visit there since George W. Bush stopped by in 2003. President Obama never visited, and the depressed level of military spending during his presidency nearly shut the place down.

That is not an exaggeration. Wrongly assuming that Russia had ceased to be a threat to global security, the Obama administration cut the number of Army armored brigades to a record low of nine.

Production of upgraded Abrams tanks at the Lima site fell to a single tank per month, and the Army seriously considered mothballing its only facility capable of producing the nation’s premier land warfare weapon.

As if all that were not enough, the Obama administration also killed a badly needed Marine amphibious landing vehicle that would have been built at Lima. The tank plant had been renamed the Joint Systems Manufacturing Center…

Twelve French Churches Attacked, Vandalized In One Week – Breitbart

A dozen Catholic churches have been desecrated across France over the period of one week in an egregious case of anti-Christian vandalism. The recent spate of church profanations has puzzled both police and ecclesiastical leaders, who have mostly remained silent as the violations have spread up and down France.

Last Sunday, marauders set fire to the church of Saint-Sulpice – one of Paris’ largest and most important churches – shortly after the twelve-o’clock Mass.

Police have concluded that the fire was the result of arson and are now looking for possible suspects. The restoration of the church from the damage caused by the fire will reportedly cost several hundred million euros.

In Nimes (department of the Gard), near the border with Spain, the church of Notre-Dame des Enfants was desecrated in a particularly odious way, with vandals painting a cross with human excrement, looting the main altar and the tabernacle, and stealing the consecrated hosts, which were discovered later among piles of garbage…

The Federal Reserve: A Failure Of The Rule Of Law – Alexander W. Salter

“Money is power.” We’ve all heard this aphorism many times before. Too often it’s a lazy shorthand dismissal of the finding of mainstream economics, which show that the pursuit and possession of money often entails innocuous or even beneficial consequences for society.

Dr. Johnson was right after all: “There are few ways in which a man can be more innocently employed than in getting money.” But there are some contexts in which the saying is apt. An obvious case is the Federal Reserve.

The Fed has a monopoly on the creation of base money, the fundamental asset underlying the banking and financial system. And over decades, with each instance of financial turbulence, the Fed has become less constrained in how, when, and why it creates base money.

Since the Great Recession, the Fed has been able to bestow purchasing power, liquidity, and solvency on just about any financial organization it pleases. If that isn’t power, there’s no such thing…

Woman Has Anaphylactic Reaction To Semen In First Reported Case Of Its Kind – Science Alert

By the time she showed up at the emergency room of the General University Hospital of Alicante, she was vomiting profusely, had shortness of breath, and her entire body was covered in hives.

The doctors diagnosed her with a moderate anaphylactic reaction, and tried to figure out what had caused it.

Their only clue: the patient’s reaction had started after having unprotected sex with her male partner, which involved “oral ejaculation” according to the case report.

Former NYPD Commissioner Benard Kerik warned Wednesday that Americans will “never have faith” in the U.S. government until the FBI’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email probe is investigated for obstruction of justice.

Kerik’s remarks came in response to transcripts showing former FBI legal counsel Lisa Page testified to Congress that the Department of Justice ordered the FBI not to charge Clinton with “gross negligence” for mishandling classified information.

Senate Republicans Confirm Neomi Rao To Succeed Brett Kavanaugh On DC Court Of Appeals – Daily Caller

The Senate confirmed Neomi Rao to succeed Justice Brett Kavanaugh on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit early Wednesday afternoon.

The 53-46 vote followed party lines. Rao overcame Democrats who opposed her nomination in view of opinion pieces she wrote for a college newspaper as an undergraduate at Yale and social conservatives who expressed misgivings about her views on social issues.

“Neomi Rao’s experience and intellect make her uniquely qualified to fill Justice Kavanaugh’s shoes on the D.C. Circuit,” Carrie Severino, chief counsel of the Judicial Crisis Network, said in a statement. “Rao will fairly apply the law and honor the Constitution; she’ll be a phenomenal judge serving on one of our nation’s highest courts.”

The D.C. Circuit is often styled the second most powerful court in the nation because its docket encompasses high-profile regulatory and separation of powers disputes. The court is also something of a farm team for the Supreme Court…

Study: Migrants Using Nearly Two Times The Welfare Of Native-Born Americans – Breitbart

Households headed by foreign noncitizens living in the United States, including legal and illegal aliens, use nearly twice as much welfare as native-born Americans, research finds.

In recently released research by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), analysts discovered that about 63 percent of noncitizen households, those who live legally and illegally in the U.S., use some form of public welfare while only about 35 percent of native-born American households are on welfare.

Likewise, roughly 50 percent of naturalized citizens – those who legally immigrated to the country and became citizens – use taxpayer-funded welfare, as well as about 55 percent of all households headed by legal immigrants, those who are naturalized citizens and those who are not yet citizens.

Noncitizen households are more than twice as likely to use food welfare programs and Medicaid when compared to native-born American households. Only about 21 percent of native-born American households use food welfare programs and 23 percent use Medicaid…

Theresa May’s Brexit Deal Crushed By MPs Again, Leaving UK No Closer To Quitting EU After 993 Days – The Sun

Ocasio-Cortez Blames Pipeline That Hasn’t Been Built Yet For An Oil Spill – Daily Caller

Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez blamed the Keystone XL pipeline for leaking about 5,000 barrels of oil in rural South Dakota about two years ago. There’s just one problem: The Keystone XL pipeline has not been built yet.

During a House hearing Tuesday, Ocasio-Cortez claimed that “Keystone XL, in particular, had one leak that leaked 210,000 gallons across South Dakota” while she questioned Wells Fargo president and CEO Timothy Sloan.

Ocasio-Cortez probably confused the Keystone XL pipeline with the Keystone pipeline, which has been operating since 2010. Keystone XL is still under construction, but would also bring oil sands from Canada to Nebraska where it would connect to existing pipeline.

Environmentalists spent years opposing the Keystone XL pipeline, filing court challenges and successfully lobbying former President Barack Obama to personally reject the project in late 2015. President Donald Trump reversed that decision in early 2017, but Keystone XL’s progress has since been delayed by activist lawsuits…

Looters Pillage Venezuelan Supermarkets As Crippling Blackout Hits Day 5 – Zero Hedge

As reports of approaching 20 or more deaths at hospitals attempting to operate with faulty back-up generators came in over the weekend, Reuters noted, “Electricity experts said that outage was most likely due to failures in the transmission system, and that the government lacks the equipment and staff to repair them.”

The 1972 Progressive Pathway To Oblivion – Victor Davis Hanson

Omar, who already has been condemned by Democratic leaders for anti-Semitism, is again under the microscope for anti-Semitic remarks she made over the weekend.

Democrats were going to introduce another resolution this week to condemn Omar’s anti-Semitism, but after outrage from the far-left wing of the Democratic Party, it appears as though the party will no longer introduce a resolution specifically condemning Omar but will condemn all hate.

New DemoNazi Bill To Tax Stock Market Could Devastate Ordinary Savings And Retirement – Daily Signal

A new tax proposal in Congress aims to stick it to the rich. But if passed, it could devastate the U.S. financial system and ruin the value of ordinary Americans’ retirement accounts.

The cash transfers from the PACs – overseen by Saikat Chakrabarti, the freshman socialist Democrat’s chief of staff – run counter to her pledges to increase transparency and reduce the influence of “dark money” in politics.

Chakrabarti’s companies appear to have been set up for the sole purpose of obscuring how the political donations were used.

Fusion GPS Founder Had Contact With State Department Official During 2016 Campaign – Daily Caller
.

One of the co-founders of the opposition research firm that commissioned the Steele dossier was in contact with a State Department official in the days before a news article was published laying out allegations contained in the salacious anti-Trump report.

Emails obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation show that Glenn Simpson, an executive at Fusion GPS, contacted Jonathan Winer, who then served as State’s special envoy for Libya, on Sept. 19 and Sept. 22, 2016.

That was days ahead of the publication of a Yahoo! News article that was the first story to cite information gathered by Christopher Steele, the former British spy who authored the dossier…

Ocasio-Cortez’s Mom Leaves New York To Escape Democrats’ High Taxes – Daily Wire

Blanca Ocasio-Cortez, the mother of socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), has fled the state of New York and moved to Florida because she was no longer able to afford the Democrat state’s high taxes.

In an exclusive interview Monday, The Daily Mail reported that Ocasio-Cortez’s mom moved into an “out-of-the-way lakefront community shortly before Democrat AOC filed her candidacy to become the youngest woman ever elected to the U.S. Congress.”

“I was cleaning houses in the morning and working as a secretary at a hospital in the afternoon. I was working from 6 am until 11 pm,” Blanca, a lifelong Democrat, said. “And I prayed and prayed, and things worked out. After the children graduated from college, I figured it was time for me to move to Florida.”

“I lived in the New York area for most of my life but I started being unable to afford it,” she continued. “I was paying $10,000 a year in real estate taxes up north. I’m paying $600 a year in Florida. It’s stress-free down here.”…

The federal government collected a record $1,665,484,000,000 in individual income taxes in calendar year 2018, according to the Monthly Treasury Statements for year, which the Treasury finished publishing today with the belated release of the December statement.

The real federal individual income tax revenues collected in calendar 2018 were $9,312,450,000 more than the real individual income tax revenues collected in calendar year 2017. At the same time the Treasury was collecting record individual income taxes, the federal debt was climbing…

Amazon No. 1 For Sexual Exploitation Of Kids – WorldNetDaily

Think Amazon and the fast delivery of a seemingly endless array of products comes to mind. It is that, but there is a darker side. Try “gratuitous nudity and simulated sex scenes.” Think “child-like sex dolls.” Think “eroticized child nudity.” Think “incest, babysitter, and group-sex themes.”

That’s from the “Dirty Dozen” list compiled by the National Center on Sexual Exploitation, which each year “exposes and calls to account groups, agencies and businesses that contribute significantly to the normalization of sexual exploitation.”

The center, which ranked Amazon No. 1, explained, “This list ensures that their participation and collusion with the various aspects of the sex trade becomes public knowledge and equips citizens with information and tools to hold them accountable.”

Since it began the lists, it has been behind 98 policy improvements in corporations and government entities, the report said…

FEC Still Refuses To Investigate Alleged $84 Million Clinton Campaign Money Laundering – The Federalist
.

.
Tuesday evening the Committee to Defend the President (CDP) filed a motion in a D.C. federal court seeking to supplement the complaint it had filed against the Federal Election Committee (FEC) in April 2018.

In its original complaint, the CDP alleged that the agency responsible for enforcing campaign-finance law failed to act on an administrative complaint the CDP had filed with the FEC. That complaint charged that, during the 2016 presidential election, Democrats illegally funneled approximately $84 million through the Hillary Victory Fund to the Democratic National Committee (DNC), which then illegally coordinated with the Hillary Clinton campaign.

To understand the alleged scheme requires familiarity with controlling campaign-finance law and campaign contribution limits…

The Democrats’ Dangerous Gong Show – Bruce Thornton

Democratically elected people’s assemblies historically have been known for their mediocrity, and the U.S. has been no different.

The great champion of American democracy, Alexis de Tocqueville, in 1835 observed, “I was surprised to find so much distinguished talent among the citizens and so little among the heads of the government. It is a constant fact that at the present day the ablest men in the United States are rarely placed at the head of affairs,” a condition that worsens the more democratic the government becomes.

But over the last decade, the ineptitude of our Congressmen has increased dramatically, to the point that today Congress looks like the green room for the Gong Show. The last midterm especially brought to Washington some representatives whose abject ignorance of even basic math is astonishing, and whose embrace of ideas hostile to the American Constitutional order are frightening.

More troubling, some of them have become the de facto leaders of the Democrat progressives, the mangy tail that today is wagging the already scrofulous dog…

In Washington State, Sheriffs Refuse To Enforce New Gun-Control Law – Wall Street Journal
.

.
More than a dozen county sheriffs in Washington state are refusing to enforce a sweeping gun-control measure that passed with the support of 59% of the state’s voters in November. The new law raises the age for buying semiautomatic rifles to 21 from 18, stiffens background checks for purchases of semiautomatic rifles, and imposes new criminal penalties for the unsafe storage of firearms.

It is the most wide-reaching gun control law passed anywhere in the U.S. since a 19-year-old gunman opened fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., with a semiautomatic rifle one year ago this week, killing 17 people.

At least 16 elected sheriffs, primarily from rural, conservative counties that voted against the measure, say they won’t enforce the law because they believe it is unconstitutional…

New York Governor Cuomo Now Blames Florida For His State’s $2.3 Billion Budget Shortfall – Breitbart

Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) is now falsely blaming both President Trump and Florida for his own state’s $2.3 billion budget shortfall. If you recall, less than ten days ago, Cuomo attempted to blame Trump’s tax cut for New York’s failure to collect the revenue necessary to cover this year’s budget.

“It literally restructured the economy to help red states at the cost of blue states,” Cuomo whined of the tax reform that has soared the national economy.

“He says it’s prompting many of the state’s richest residents – who pay 46 percent of the state’s income tax – to either change their primary residence or leave New York entirely,” he added, according to local media.

At the time, I debunked Cuomo’s claim. You can read the details here. Warning: there is some math involved. Bottom line: Trump’s tax reform put an end to the immoral practice of allowing high-tax states like New York to force the rest of the country to underwrite their bad policies…

The Co-Sponsor Of The Green New Deal Thinks Mitch McConnell’s Plan To Hold A Vote On It Is ‘Sabotage’ And A ‘Republican Trick’ – Reason

Last week, when Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and Sen. Edward Markey (D-Mass.) introduced the Green New Deal, a resolution calling for a massive, government-driven overhaul of the U.S. economy in order to address climate change, Markey tweeted that the plan’s “transformative legislative goals are what is needed to address the generational challenge of climate change.”

In an accompanying press release, he said climate change should be “the highest of Congressional priorities,” and he stressed that time was of the essence, saying “we need bold action to avoid the worst impacts of climate change, and we may have as few as 12 years to achieve it.”

Apparently, however, such action can wait a little longer…

DC District Court Hands Trump’s EPA A Major Victory Over Environmentalist Wackos – Daily Caller

The District of Columbia District Court granted the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) petition to dismiss legal action against a policy to prohibit scientists from receiving agency funding while sitting on advisory boards.

EPA issued the policy directive in 2017 under former Administrator Scott Pruitt. A coalition of environmental groups promptly filed suit, alleging it lacked the authority to make changes to advisory board policies and violated the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA).

Judge Trevor McFadden ruled against environmental groups, led by Physicians for Social Responsibility, and agreed to dismiss all four counts leveled against EPA’s ethics policy. President Donald Trump appointed McFadden to the D.C. District Court in 2017.

“In sum, Physicians have not plausibly alleged a conflict between the Directive and the conflict of interest statute and [Office of Government Ethics (OGE)] regulations,” McFadden wrote in his opinion issued Tuesday…

GOP Takes First Step Toward ‘Nuclear’ Rules Change To Speed Trump Nominees – Washington Times

Republicans took the first official step Wednesday toward a rules change that would allow the Senate to speed up votes on some of the president’s nominees – setting the stage for what’s likely to become a “nuclear” confrontation.

While pleading for bipartisanship, GOP senators made clear they’ll likely act no matter what on a plan to cut the amount of debate time after filibusters to two hours on most presidential nominees, down from the 30 hours currently allowed under the rules.

The 10-9 party-line vote made clear that bipartisanship is unlikely, leaving Republicans with only one option if they want to force the new rules through in time for President Trump to benefit: use the “nuclear option” to approve the changes on a majority vote…

Ted Cruz Revives ‘El Chapo’ Bill To Pay For Border Wall – Breitbart

Following the conviction of Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman in a New York federal court on Tuesday, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) revived his call to pay for border wall construction with the assets seized from drug traffickers. The Texas senator first introduced the “EL CHAPO” Act in 2017.

“America’s justice system prevailed today in convicting Joaquيn Guzmلn Loera, aka El Chapo, on all 10 counts,” Senator Cruz said in a tweet on Tuesday. He said that prosecutors are seeking the seizure of $14 billion in “drug profits and other assets” from the jailed drug lord and that those funds should go toward building the border wall.

Cruz introduced the Ensuring Lawful Collection of Hidden Assets to Provide Order (EL CHAPO) Act in April 2017, Breitbart News reported.

Deep State Corruption Update: New Emails Confirm FBI Tried To Work Deal With State Department To Minimize Hillary Email Scandal – Daily Wire

Over two years after the fact, newly released FBI emails obtained via a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request confirm that James Comey’s FBI attempted to work out a quid pro quo deal with the Obama State Department to help minimize the Hillary Clinton private email server scandal just weeks before the 2016 election.

Fox News’s Catherine Herridge and Pamela K. Browne first reported on the alleged deal back on Oct. 15, 2016, but full confirmation did not come until this week when the government transparency watchdog group Judicial Watch released FBI communication related to the deal.

“FBI interview summaries and notes, provided late Friday to the House Government Oversight and Intelligence Committees, contain allegations of a ‘quid pro quo’ between a senior State Department executive and FBI agents during the Hillary Clinton email investigation, two congressional sources told Fox News,”

Stocks Surge As Senate Intel Committee Confirms “No Collusion” – Zero Hedge

Nearly a year after their colleagues in the House reached a similar conclusion, the Senate Intel Committee said on Tuesday that it was preparing to conclude its investigation into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia after finding – get this – no direct evidence of a conspiracy, according to NBC News.

The investigation is coming to a close after 2 years and more than 200 interviews. Senate Intel Committee Chairman Richard Burr said the decision to end the probe was made after the committee started running out of new questions to ask.

“If we write a report based upon the facts that we have, then we don’t have anything that would suggest there was collusion by the Trump campaign and Russia,” said Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, in an interview with CBS News last week.

Dumber Than Dirt: Democrat Senator Booker Says ‘This Planet Simply Can’t Sustain’ People Eating Meat – Washington Free Beacon

Sen. Cory Booker (D., N.J.) said the planet “can’t sustain” people eating meat, as the 2020 hopeful aims to become the first vegan president. Booker told the vegan magazine VegNews earlier this month that he became vegan after coming to the realization that eating eggs “didn’t align with my spirit.”

While claiming he does not want to lecture Americans on their diets, Booker says Americans need to be nudged into fake cheese because the planet cannot sustain the “environmental impact” of the food industry.

“You see the planet earth moving towards what is the Standard American Diet,” Booker said. “We’ve seen this massive increase in consumption of meat produced by the industrial animal agriculture industry.”

Progressing America Into The Abyss – Thaddeus McCotter

Leftists self-identify as “progressives.” Yet anyone with a scrap of sanity and a rudimentary understanding of their philosophical antecedents, as well as their injurious policy prescriptions, objectively identifies the Left not as “progressive” but as “regressive.”

Their incessant, implacable lust to destroy the American Revolution’s novel birth of individual freedom and replace it with an antiquated, governmentally coerced collectivism cannot be classified as anything ordinarily understood to be “progress.”

Today’s “progressives” stand in opposition to the autonomy of the empowering times in which we find ourselves, namely the communications revolution.

Their deluded aim seeks a societal regression back through serfdom to “noble savagery” all in the name of an “equality” that ultimately reveals itself to be one of penury, misery, and servitude (unless one is a member of the Leftist governing elite).

Yet, is this view fair to the Left?…
