Leftist Prime Minister Of Sweden Ousted After Vote Of No Confidence By Parliament – Daily Telegraph
.

.
Sweden’s prime minister will be stripped of his position after losing a vote of no confidence on Tuesday, as the country grapples with a hung parliament and a surge in support for a radical nationalist party in elections earlier this month.

Stefan Lofven, the leader of the Social Democratic Party who has been prime minister for four years, will continue in a caretaker role until a new government can be formed that has the command of the Riksdag.

Mr Lofven lost the vote as Sweden’s centre-right parties joined forces with the hard-Right Sweden Democrats party to vote against him – an unprecedented move in Swedish politics that will lead to weeks of uncertainty…

MAGA Update: Consumer Confidence Index Surges To 18-Year High – Yahoo News

Consumer confidence is at its highest level since 2000. The Consumer Confidence Index reached 138.4, exceeding average analyst estimates of 132.1, the Conference Board reported Tuesday. The previous revised confidence index was 134.7 for August.

“After a considerable improvement in August, Consumer Confidence increased further in September and hovers at an 18-year high,” Lynn Franco, Director of Economic Indicators at The Conference Board, said in a statement.

“The September reading is not far from the all-time high of 144.7 reached in 2000. Consumers’ assessment of current conditions remains extremely favorable, bolstered by a strong economy and robust job growth.”

The surge suggests “solid economic growth exceeding 3.0% for the remainder of the year,” Franco added. “These historically high confidence levels should continue to support healthy consumer spending, and should be welcome news for retailers as they begin gearing up for the holiday season.”…

Trump: ‘Absolute No’ On Statehood For Puerto Rico – Washington Times
.

.
President Trump said Monday that statehood for Puerto Rico is an “absolute no” as long as critics, such as the mayor of San Juan, are in office.

“With the mayor of San Juan as incompetent as she is and as bad as she is, Puerto Rico shouldn’t be talking about statehood until they get some people that really know what they’re doing,” Mr. Trump said in a radio interview with Geraldo Rivera.

He blasted Carmen Yulin Cruz, the mayor of the capital city, as a “horror show” who was “so disrespectful” to military and Federal Emergency Management Agency responders in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, which decimated the island a year ago. He accused her and other leaders on the island territory of botching FEMA deliveries…

Murdered Man’s Remains Found After Fig Tree Grew From Seed In Stomach – Your News Wire

A remains of a missing man who was murdered over four decades ago have been found — after a seed from a fig in his stomach grew into a tree.

Ahmet Hergune was killed during the conflict between Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots in 1974, but his body remained undiscovered for decades. It was eventually discovered because the tree which grew from his stomach was unusual for the area.

The dead man had been taken into a cave with two others where they were all killed by dynamite that was thrown in after them.

However the dynamite also blew a hole in the side of the cave, allowing light to flood into the darkened interior which in turn allowed the fig seed to sprout and grow from the man’s body, eventually becoming an enormous tree.

MSN reports: His sister, 87-year-old Munur Herguner, said:

“We used to live in a village with a population of 4,000, half Greek, half Turkish…

The Real Wave Is Red : Republican Sentiment Soars To Record High – Zero hedge
.

.
With stocks at record highs and President Trump gloating at the “record strength” of the US economy, it appears confidence is coming back as sentiment among Republicans reached an all-time record high in the latest Bloomberg Consumer Comfort Index. That’s quite a red wave.

The peak spread in confidence between Democrats and Republicans occurred in July 2004 (heading into George W Bush’s 2nd term election)… President Trump is currently very close to that peak.

Additionally, Gallup reports forty-five percent of Americans now have a favorable view of the Republican Party, a nine-point gain from last September’s 36%. It is the party’s most positive image since it registered 47% in January 2011, shortly after taking control of the House in the 2010 midterm elections…

Editor Of Philosophy Journal Fired For Saying Women Don’t Have Penises – PJ Media

Not even atheist humanists are safe from the long, punishing arms of the transgender mafia. Recently, Angelos Sofocleous was fired from his job at Durham University’s philosophy journal Critique for retweeting a tweet that fellow students called “transphobic.”

The tweet in question included a link to an article from the Spectator called “Is it a crime to say ‘women don’t have penises’?” The article is about women’s activists who had police called on them for placing stickers saying as much around their city in protest of men usurping women’s rights.

In a typical 2018 overreaction, Sofocleous’s retweet of that article caused great gnashing of teeth and loud weeping in the outrage corners of the internet. As a result, Sofocleous was dismissed from his position at the Durham publication and forced to resign as president-elect of the Humanist Students group. “Humanists,”

Sofocleous told PJM, “strive to have a rational and logical approach in life, and face issues with evidence and claims, not with belief and faith…

Kavanaugh To Judiciary Committee: “I Will Not Be Intimidated Into Withdrawing” – Mediaite

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has sent another letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee following the New Yorker report on a new allegation of sexual misconduct.

Kavanaugh states rather bluntly, “Last night, another false and uncorroborated accusation from 35 years ago was publishes. Once again, those alleged to have been witnesses to the event deny it ever happened. There is now a frenzy to come up with something – anything – that will block this process and a vote on my confirmation from occurring.”

He denounces the allegations as “smears, pure and simple,” telling Chuck Grassley and Dianne Feinstein that “such grotesque and obvious character assassination – if allowed to succeed – will dissuade competent and good people of all political persuasions from service.”

Kavanaugh continues:

“I will not be intimidated into withdrawing from this process. The coordinated effort to destroy my good name will not drive me out…

The Feminist Cult Of Victimhood – Dawn Perlmutter

Christine Blasey Ford is the latest poster child in the feminist cult of victimhood. She achieved that status by claiming she was physically attacked at a high school party by Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh three decades ago.

She immediately became the perfect useful idiot whose false memories and false allegations are being fully exploited to postpone the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh. She is the latest symbol of oppression among anti-Trump women activists.

Instead of characteristics like honor, integrity and courage, feminist heroines must first and foremost be victims, real or imagined. The current feminist movement has become a cult of angry miserable women recruited by the guru of man hating misery Hillary Clinton.

There are certain predisposing factors that facilitate recruitment into cults. These factors typically include: a desire to belong, impaired capacity for critical thinking, disillusionment, dissatisfaction, idealism, lack of self-confidence and a desire for meaning in one’s life…

Three Paralyzed People Walking Again Thanks To Implant – Washington Post

Three people whose legs were paralyzed for years can stand and take steps again thanks to an electrical implant that zaps the injured spinal cord – along with months of intense rehab, researchers reported Monday.

The milestone, reported by two teams of scientists working separately, isn’t a cure. The patients walk only with assistance – holding onto a rolling walker or with other help to keep their balance. Switch off the spinal stimulator and they no longer can voluntarily move their legs.

But during one physical therapy session at the Mayo Clinic, 29-year-old Jered Chinnock moved back and forth enough to cover about the length of a football field.

“The walking side of it isn’t something where I just leave my wheelchair behind and away I go,” Chinnock, of Tomah, Wisconsin, told The Associated Press. But, “there is the hopeful side of, maybe I’ll gain that – where I can leave the wheelchair behind, even if it is to walk to the refrigerator.”…

Deputy’s Wife Texted ‘Kirk Has Lost His Mind’ Before Murder-Suicide, Friend Says – Tampa Bay Times

Kristin Kellin got a series of disturbing text messages late Sunday from her friend, Samantha Keithley, who complained about her husband, Kirk.

“Kirk has lost his mind Kristin,” one text said. “He’s literally losing it. He’s been harassing me for the last 6 hours and I’ve asked him repeatedly to just leave me alone because I’m sick.”

Samantha Keithley, 33, wrote that she had chucked her ring outside. That was 11:50 p.m. Sometime near midnight, authorities say, she was shot to death by her husband, a 39-year-old Hillsborough County sheriff’s deputy, who then turned the gun on himself in an apparent murder-suicide.

“She was an amazing mother and an amazing friend and amazing wife,” Kellin said in an interview with the Tampa Bay Times. “This is horrible.”

Pasco County deputies were called to the home in the 17000 block of Terrazzo Way when a 14-year-old ran from the house and alerted 911 after hearing an argument and a shot fired inside the home…

Why The Left Is Consumed With Hate – Shelby Steele
.

Even before President Trump’s election, hatred had begun to emerge on the American left—counterintuitively, as an assertion of guilelessness and moral superiority. At the Women’s March in Washington the weekend after Mr. Trump’s inauguration, the pop star Madonna said, “I have thought an awful lot of blowing up the White House.”

Here hatred was a vanity, a braggadocio meant to signal her innocence of the sort of evil that, in her mind, the White House represented. (She later said the comment was “taken wildly out of context.”)

For many on the left a hateful anti-Americanism has become a self-congratulatory lifestyle. “America was never that great,” New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo recently said. For radical groups like Black Lives Matter, hatred of America is a theme of identity, a display of racial pride…

Nation’s Sheriffs Launch Crowdfunding Site In Response To ‘Failure Of Congress’ To Secure Border – CNS

Since Congress won’t act to secure the nation’s borders, Americans should “take their communities’ safety into their own hands,” the National Sheriffs’ Association (NSA) said, announcing a new crowdfunding site:

“The failure of Congress to create legitimate and comprehensive immigration reform for more than 20 years has dramatically undermined our ability to keep our communities safe. This not only puts our law enforcement at serious risk for danger, but further puts them in an untenable situation of violating our oath and promise to enforce the law.”

The crowdfunding site, http://www.SheriffsWall.org, promises that 100 percent of the tax-deductible donations will be used to secure the nation’s southern border.

The sheriffs warn that refusing to secure the border will cost Americans dearly, so now is the time for them to help provide law enforcement with vital resources:

Another ‘Witness’ Denies Knowledge Of Allegation Against Brett Kavanaugh – Breitbart

An attorney representing Leland Ingham Keyser, a longtime friend of Christine Blasey Ford, the California psychology professor who recently made public an accusation of decades-old sexual misconduct against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, said Friday evening that her client denies possessing any knowledge of the alleged incident.

Dershowitz Damns Ford’s “Outrageous” Demands: “Every Civil Libertarian Should Be Outraged… It’s Insane” – Zero Hedge

We suspect after this weekend that liberal, Democrat, Harvard Law School professor, and civil-libertarian Alan Dershowitz will be persona non grata among the establishment cognoscenti.

Dershowitz did nothing to ingratiate himself with the ‘deep state’ when he proclaimed that there is no doubt that President Trump has the legal authority to fire Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, and then suggesting that he be grilled under oath:

“No president has to tolerate in his midst somebody who may have tried to pull off a palace coup, but we ought to have hearings on this. Put him under oath, put the other people who were in the room under oath.”

But it is his comments about the seemingly untouchable Christine Blasey Ford, who went public with her allegations of sexual abuse against Judge Brett Kavanaugh last week, that likely triggered more than a few #MeToo’ers to find their safe spaces…

James Woods Suspended From Twitter Over Satirical Meme That Could “Impact An Election” – Zero Hedge

Outspoken conservative actor James Woods was suspended from posting to Twitter over a two-month-old satirical meme which very clearly parodies a Democratic advertisement campaign. While the actor’s tweets are still visible, he is unable to post new content.

The offending tweet from July 20, features three millennial-aged men with “nu-male smiles” and text that reads “We’re making a Woman’s Vote Worth more by staying home.” Above it, Woods writes “Pretty scary that there is a distinct possibility this could be real. Not likely, but in this day and age of absolute liberal insanity, it is at least possible.”

According to screenshots provided by an associate of Woods’, Twitter directed the actor to delete the post on the grounds that it contained “text and imagery that has the potential to be misleading in a way that could impact an election.”

In other words, James Woods, who has approximately 1.72 million followers, was suspended because liberals who don’t identify as women might actually take the meme seriously and not vote…

One Of Australia’s Biggest Banks Caught Committing Mortgage Fraud On Elderly Couple – Zero Hedge

An elderly couple in Western Australia found themselves to be victims of a mortgage fraud that ultimately cost them about $200,000 and their marriage, when a door-to-door salesman on behalf of a real estate developer pushed them toward an overpriced home purchase – and one of Australia’s “big four” banks, Westpac reportedly modified the couple’s disclosed income in order to get them a loan that they shouldn’t have qualified for.

Internal documents from Westpac shows that the bank’s staff inflated the income of the couple in order to approve a $464,000 loan in early 2012.

After the couple’s monthly income was changed from $4561.67 to $5797, modified using a one time bonus the husband received, the couple quickly started struggling to make repayments on the new property. They were also unable to find a tenant for the property for long periods, which exacerbated their financial situation.

China Considers Lowering Tariffs As Its Economy Faces Difficulties – OAN

FBI Finally Releases Reason For Evacuating New Mexico Solar Observatory: Child Porn – Washington Standard

MAGA Update: Dow, S&P Close At Record Highs- Money Watch

A wave of buying sent U.S. stocks solidly higher on Wall Street Thursday, pushing the Dow Jones Industrial Average above the all-time high it closed at in January. The S&P 500, the benchmark for many index funds, was also above the peak it reached last month.

A weaker dollar and a mix of mostly encouraging economic reports kept investors in a buying mood, despite the escalating trade tensions between the U.S. and China as each nation imposes new rounds of punitive tariffs on the other.

Technology stocks, banks and health care companies accounted for much of the rally. Energy and industrial companies lagged, and homebuilders slumped following new data showing flat home sales in August and surging mortgage rates.

Cillizza, who has already proven himself to be one of the most flagrantly dishonest staffers at the far-left CNN, tweeted out his lie Tuesday in response to a comment Trump made about the FBI not wanting to investigate the misconduct allegation against Kavanaugh.

Cillizza’s lie is deceptive in two ways. To begin with, in his statement, all the president did was reiterate what the FBI has already said. On two occasions, through the Department of Justice, and independent of Trump, the FBI accurately pointed out that their agency does not investigate local sexual misconduct allegations…

Officials Halt Obama Library Construction, Reveal Sweetheart Lease Deal Of $10 For 99 Years – Daily Wire

The Chicago Park District has put a halt to preparations being made for the Obama Presidential Library until after a federal court reviews a lawsuit filed by Chicago residents, and federal agencies assess the transfer of historic public land to a private entity.

But in the meantime, permits and agreements filed by Chicago city officials, and with the Chicago Department of Transportation, reveal a sweetheart rent deal that any Chicago renter (or landlord) would certainly envy: the Obama Foundation will pay a mere $10 for a 99-year lease on what is supposed to be a public park.

Cold-Blooded Hitman Caught On Camera Shooting Serbian Property Developer Turns Out To Be 70-Year-Old Woman – Daily Mail

This is the chilling moment a 70-year-old woman nonchalantly approaches a man in the street and shoots him three times in the head and body. The pensioner can then be seen walking away as though nothing had happened.

Named as 70-year-old Stojanka Stojanovic, she confessed to killing the man in northern Serbian capital Belgrade. The victim has been identified as 59-year-old property investor Zoran Trifunovic, who was fighting a court case against Stojanovic.

The footage from a street surveillance camera shows the victim walking towards his killer as he talks on a mobile phone. The OAP then calmly produces a gun and shoots him in the jaw at close range. Trifunovic slumps to the floor where he is shot again, this time in the stomach.

Stojanovic then walks slowly around his body before deciding to fire a parting shot at his head. As Trifunovic lies dying on the floor, the casual killer slowly walks away looking as though she does not have a care in the world…

The Worst Ex-President Derby – Bruce Thornton

Jimmy Carter must be pleased. He got to surrender his “worst postwar president crown” to Barack Obama, and now with Obama’s recent return to public appearances, Jimmy is hopeful that his award for “worst postwar ex-president” will soon be gone as well. The real question for the rest of us is whether Obama will help or hurt the Dems in November.

Carter and Obama are competing in the same category: reactive presidents. In 1976 Carter seemed the antidote to the scandal-plagued Nixon years. The church-going peanut farmer from Georgia appeared to be the principled outsider who could cleanse the stains of Vietnam and Watergate.

No matter that Vietnam’s escalation had been a Democrat show, or that Nixon had drawn down U.S. troops in Vietnam from nearly half a million in 1969 to 27,000 in 1972.

Or that Watergate, as Conrad Black described the Europeans’ bemused reaction, was “a pious exercise in Anglo-Saxon hypocrisy covering the crucifixion of a capable and successful president,” one confected and peddled by the Nixon-hating media….

Neighbors Complain About Florida Man Doing Yard Work Naked; Police Say It Is Legal – Circa

Neighbors in Stuart, Florida, are irritated with their fellow resident who has been doing yard work in the nude.

Another neighbor believes the man should have some respect for children who live in the area. “Kids catch the bus here. It’s wrong,” neighbor Charlie Estes told WPBF-TV.

Feds Forced To Release Border-Jumping Children To Criminals In U.S. Illegally Themselves – Washington Times

The government says it’s being forced to turn illegal immigrant children over to sponsors who are themselves in the U.S. illegally – and many of those adults already have criminal records, leaving the kids in a precarious position.

Matthew Albence, the chief of deportations at U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, told senators during a hearing Tuesday that nearly 80 percent of the kids nabbed jumping the border end up being placed in households with illegal immigrants.

And he said “a large chunk” of the adults are flagged for criminal entanglements.

For illegal immigrant families nabbed at the border, meanwhile, they’re usually released together as part of the court-imposed catch-and-release practice. And nearly one-in-three of those parents quickly cuts off the ankle monitoring device meant to make sure they show up for their deportations.

That creates an impossible situation for ICE, which doesn’t have the manpower to devote to tracking down those families, Mr. Albence said…

He explained that the new Strzok-Page texts exposed a strategy to “illegally and criminally” release Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant information, including releasing the name of a U.S. citizen caught up in the surveillance abuse…

Authorities have arrested and charged a woman in Long Island for making up a story about a Trump-related hate crime, police said. Adwoa Lewis, 19, told detectives Friday four teenagers confronted her as she was driving home on September 2, yelling “Trump 2016!” before stating that she did not belong here.

Lewis also claimed that she parked her vehicle in front of her house, then woke up the next morning to find her car’s tires slashed and a note with the words, “Go home,” police said.

But when authorities investigated the alleged incident, police found that Lewis fabricated the tale and the incident never took place. Lewis later admitted to officers she placed the hand-written note on her car, police said…

State-Run Swedish Kindergarten Encourages Boys To Wear Dresses – Your News Wire

A state-run kindergarten in Sweden is encouraging young boys to wear dresses and has instructed teachers to drop the “he” and “she” pronouns.

According to an interview with a whistleblower named “Anna,” teachers are told to initiate conversations with children as young as two about “boys falling in love with boys and girls falling in love with girls.”

Infowars.com reports: Anna, who has been working in the kindergarten for two years, said she was quickly informed that telling children something they were wearing was “nice” was forbidden and that the pre-schoolers should not be assigned genders.

When Anna read books to the children, she noticed that all mentions of “he” or “she” had been covered with Tipp-Ex and replaced with the gender neutral pronoun “hen”.

She later discovered that the popular “Emil and Pippi” books had been thrown away because they didn’t feature any gender neutral characters…

Arizona Democrat Running For Senate Advertised American Troops As Undead Terrorists Saughtering Innocents – Right Scoop

Kyrsten Sinema is running against Republican nominee Rep. Martha McSally for the Senate seat vacated by the departing Jeff Flake in Arizona, and she thinks the United States conducts terrorism.

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

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

Another 9,016 people were deemed inadmissible and turned away at ports of entry, for a grand total of 46,560 people who tried to take advantage of the nation’s broken immigration system in August alone.

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

Memories Of Leftist Glee About 9/11 – Jamie Glazov

I had known some of these leftists for years, and after the fall of the Soviet empire in 1989-91 many of them bitterly lamented to me that the “alternative to capitalism” was now gone. A significant number of them retreated into a silent and sullen shell.

Then came 9/11.

Almost overnight, these individuals underwent a miraculous transformation. A bright sparkle could once again be detected in their eyes, as their revolutionary selves came out of a deep slumber. Never had I seen them so happy, so hopeful, and ready for another attempt at creating a glorious and revolutionary future. Without doubt, September 11 represented a personal – and morbid – vindication for them…

Report: Aborted Baby Body Parts Traffickers May Be Raking In U.S. Tax Dollars – The Federalist

A new report shows that an organization that harvests aborted baby organs for research has been charging more than what is legally reimbursable.

Federal law prohibits the sale or purchase of fetal tissue – that is, human body parts harvested from pre-born or aborted babies – for “valuable consideration.” The law does, however, allow reimbursing baby body part suppliers for costs “associated with the transportation, implantation, processing, preservation, quality control, or storage of human fetal tissue.”

“As the Republican nominee for Governor of Florida, it is clear to me that I will likely miss the vast majority of our remaining session days for this Congress,” DeSantis wrote. “Under these circumstances, it would be inappropriate for me to accept a salary. In order to honor my principles and protect the taxpayer, I officially resign from the House of Representatives effective immediately.”…

Winning: Small Business Optimism Surges To Highest Level Ever – CNBC

U.S. small business optimism surged to a record in August as the tax cuts and deregulation efforts of President Donald Trump and the Republican-led Congress led to more sales, hiring and investment, according to a survey by the National Federation of Independent Business.

The NFIB Small Business Optimism Index jumped to 108.8 last month, the highest level ever recorded in the survey’s 45-year history and above the previous record of 108 in 1983, set during the second year of Ronald Reagan’s presidency. The August figure was up from a 107.9 reading in July.

The NFIB noted record readings for job creation plans and the amount of owners saying it was a good time to expand. Capital spending plans were the highest since 2007.

“Today’s groundbreaking numbers are demonstrative of what I’m hearing everyday from small business owners – that business is booming,” said NFIB President and CEO Juanita D. Duggan…

“Last year we said goodbye to America’s old, broken tax code,” said Brady. “Under our new system, we’re seeing incredible job growth, bigger paychecks, and a tax code that works on behalf of families and American businesses. Now it’s the time to ensure we never let our tax code become so outdated again. We look forward to bringing these bills to the Committee soon.”

U.S. Threatens To Arrest “Unaccountable” ICC Judges If They Try To Charge Americans Who Fought In Afghanistan With War Crimes – AFP

White House National Security Advisor John Bolton called the Hague-based rights body “unaccountable” and “outright dangerous” to the United States, Israel and other allies, and said any probe of U.S. service members would be “an utterly unfounded, unjustifiable investigation.”

“If the court comes after us, Israel or other U.S. allies, we will not sit quietly,” Bolton said. He said the U.S. was prepared to slap financial sanctions and criminal charges on officials of the court if they proceed against any Americans.

California Democrats Doing Everything They Can To Drive Up Energy Costs – Fox Business

Democratic state Sen. Hannah Beth Jackson of Santa Barbara introduced the legislation after President Donald Trump’s administration announced plans to allow oil and gas drilling off most of the nation’s coastline.

California can’t directly block drilling in waters controlled by the federal government but hopes to drive up costs so it’s unprofitable.

An alleged Rotherham grooming gang victim was raped by 100 ‘Asian’ men by the age of 16 after she was “passed around” by abusers from the age of just 13, a court has heard.

The girl, named only as Girl B in local media, described how she became pregnant and her childhood was “snatched away” as a result of the abuse she allegedly suffered between 1998 and 2001, in a video interview played at Sheffield Crown Court on Friday.

Jurors heard the testimony at the trial of eight ‘Asian’ men accused of sexually abusing five girls between 1998 and 2003, including Tanweer Ali, 37, and Mohammed Imran Ali Akhtar, 37, who are accused of indecently assaulting Girl B on multiple occasions when she was under the age of 16.

Connecticut Workers Sue SEIU For Back Dues – Washington Free Beacon

Government workers in Connecticut have filed a class-action suit to recover their wages in the wake of the Supreme Court’s ruling against coercive unionism.

Employees with the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection are suing the state chapter of Service Employees International Union, Local 2001, to win back dues and agency fees the state required them to pay as a condition of employment.

The suit comes just months after the Supreme Court declared forced-dues schemes in the public sector an unconstitutional violation of the First Amendment. It alleges the department and union have made no effort to reimburse workers for mandatory payments.

“Local 2001 and the State Defendants acting under color of state law to force employees to join a union or pay a fee as a condition of continued employment have violated Plaintiffs’ rights,” the suit says. “Defendants, acting in concert with one another, have deprived, and continue to deprive, Plaintiffs and class members’ of their constitutional rights.”…

Times Op-Ed The Definitive Proof Of NeverTrump Moral Idiocy – Bruce Thornton

Trump Considering Using Military Assets To Build Border Wall If Congress Refuses To Fund It Through Homeland Security’s Budget – Daily Mail

He also wouldn’t eliminate the possibility of a government shutdown if Democrats continue to confound his efforts to appropriate money for the project on the U.S.-Mexico border.

‘We have two options,’ he told DailyMail.com aboard Air Force One as he flew from Billings, Montana to Fargo, North Dakota. ‘We have military, we have homeland security.’

He was asked specifically about using the Army Corps of Engineers as a taxpayer-funded construction crew. Trump said he would prefer to fund the ambitious construction ‘the old-fashioned way – get it from Congress – but I have other options if I have to.’

Mexican Prosecutors Find 166 Skulls In Mass Graves – Fox News

Clothes, personal possession and other parts of skeletons also were recovered, but investigators focused on the skulls in counting, because each corresponds to one person.

Report: Federal Prosecutors Impanel Grand Jury In Andrew McCabe Probe – Breitbart

Federal prosecutors reportedly impaneled a grand jury several months ago as part of an investigation into whether former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe intentionally misled investigators about improperly leaking information to a reporter.

According to The Washington Post, at least one witness was summoned to testify by the grand jury, in what is believed to be a sign that the probe has “intensified” in recent months.

“The presence of the grand jury shows prosecutors are treating the matter seriously, locking in the accounts of witnesses who might later have to testify at a trial. But such panels are sometimes used only as investigative tools, and it remains unclear if McCabe will ultimately be charged,” writes author Matt Zapotosky.

In April, Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s long-awaited report concluded McCabe made false statements to U.S. officials on at least four occasions and improperly disclosed information to then-Wall Street Journal reporter Devlin Barrett “to advance his personal interests over those of the Justice Department.”…
