Police Hunt Suspected Serial Killer After Third Woman Found Shot To Death In East St. Louis, Illinois – BNO News

A number of similarities have been found in the murders of three women whose bodies were found near East St. Louis in Illinois, police announced on Tuesday afternoon, prompting fears of a serial killer. All three victims were shot and killed.

The first victim, 49-year-old Sandra Reckmann of Alhambra, was found at about 5 a.m. on July 9 in an area of overgrown vegetation in Washington Park, a village in St. Clair County. Her body was discovered by a driver who called 9-1-1 after nearly running her over.

Less than a day later, at 3:10 a.m. on July 10, the body of a second woman was discovered less than half a mile (800 meters) away, at Thornton Memorial Park. The victim was later identified as 56-year-old Bridgette Williams of Washington Park.

More recently, at 4:48 a.m. on Sunday, a third body was found in overgrown vegetation near the intersection of Jefferson Avenue and Belleview Street in East St. Louis, about 2 miles (3 kilometers) from the other two scenes…

Facebook To Pay Record $5 Billion Fine In FTC Settlement – Zero Hedge

As extensively leaked in advance, on Wednesday morning Facebook agreed to pay a record $5 billion fine to resolve a long-running federal investigation that has damaged the company’s standing with consumers and clouded its future, and agreed to better police its data-privacy practices,

Under the settlement, Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg will be required to certify that the company is in compliance with new privacy strictures, and could be subject to civil and criminal penalties for false certifications.

Twitter Is Enabling A Predator And Silencing The Women Who Stand Up To Him – Daily Wire

The saga of Jessica Yaniv, the transgrender predator who is trying to legally force women to touch his penis, features many creepy twists and turns.

The very fact that Canada is taking his complaint seriously – actually deliberating over the claim that his human rights were somehow violated when female estheticians declined to wax his testicles – is so ludicrous as to seem satirical.

There is a part of me that at first wondered whether Yaniv might be a brilliant and committed satirist, out to expose the inherent absurdity of left-wing gender theory. It turns out, of course, that he is just a repugnant, degenerate creep.

As I wrote yesterday, Yaniv has been surprisingly upfront about his real intentions. He has repeatedly expressed interest in meeting young, menstruating girls in the bathroom, and wondered whether he might have the opportunity to help them with their pads and tampons…

New Sections Of Trump’s Wall Helping Secure Border, Agents Say – Breitbart

Border Patrol agents insist that completed new sections of border barriers are helping them to secure the border and making the agents safer in the process. This comes on the heels of media reports inaccurately asserting that no new barriers have been constructed during the Trump Administration.

Border Patrol Agent Mike Matzke told Breitbart News, “New sections of Trump’s wall have been built and anyone claiming that a 30-foot barrier that replaced a 10-foot high sheet metal fence isn’t new barrier doesn’t know what they are talking about. The old legacy landing mat fence in our sector wasn’t effective and really bad people were jumping all day and night.”

Agent Matzke spoke with Breitbart News in his role as president of the National Border Patrol Council’s Local 2554 in El Centro, California.

“We’ve had people throw Molotov cocktails over the old landing mat fence and it was dangerous because we couldn’t see through it like we can with Trump’s new border barrier…

“Last year, Vice President Pence announced the Genocide Recovery and Persecution Response Initiative. This is an important step forward for the United States, and we are grateful for his leadership and that of the White House, the State Department and USAID on this issue.

“We are also pleased that our organization has been able to provide important input to this and the previous administration on the response to religious persecution, and has worked successfully for unanimous passage by both houses of Congress on not one, but two bills addressing this genocide and its aftermath.”

South Bend Cops Warn Of ‘Mass Exodus’ As Morale Plummets Over Buttigieg’s Mishandling Of Shooting – PJ Media

How is he supposed to be able to run a country if he can’t manage a small city?

South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg has been embroiled in controversy for several weeks after a white policeman shot a black man to death. The officer, Sgt. Ryan O’Neill, shot and killed Eric Logan after he responded to a call of someone breaking into cars.

O’Neill claims that Logan, armed with a knife, advanced on him after repeated orders to stop and was fatally shot. But O’Neill did not turn on his body cam, so, of course, the officer’s account of what happened became not only immediately suspect, but O’Neill was tried, convicted, and hung by the South Bend media and black activists.

So how did our new liberal hero – the man who would be president – handle this crisis? He all but called the police department racists.

Trump Reaches Budget Deal With DemoNazis – Epoch Times

President Donald Trump announced on July 22 that the White House has reached a deal with Democratic and Republican leaders on a two-year budget, amounting to an against-the-odds victory for Washington pragmatists seeking to avoid politically dangerous tumult over fiscal deadlines.

“I am pleased to announce that a deal has been struck with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy – on a two-year Budget and Debt Ceiling, with no poison pills,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “This was a real compromise in order to give another big victory to our Great Military and Vets!”

Aides on both sides of the talks say the deal would restore the government’s ability to borrow to pay its bills into the next administration and build upon recent large budget gains for both the Pentagon and domestic agencies.

Trump Gives ICE New Powers To Crack Down On Illegal Immigration – Daily Wire

The Trump administration has finalized a plan that will allow Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to rapidly deport illegal aliens by bypassing immigration courts in situations where an illegal alien is unable to prove that they have been present in the United States continuously for at least two years.

“The Department of Homeland Security will publish a notice in the Federal Register Tuesday that aims to use the department’s full statutory authority to employ ‘expedited removal’ to a wider range of undocumented immigrants who cross the border illegally,” Politico reported.

NBC News reports that since 2004, “the policy allowed for immigration authorities to use the expedited removal process for unauthorized immigrants caught within 100 miles of a U.S. land border and arrested within 14 days of arrival.”

The new notice expands the policy to allow ICE to use the expedited removal process against illegal aliens anywhere in the U.S…

Trump Administration Looks To Remove Ineligible People From Food Stamp Rolls – Daily Caller

The United States Department of Agriculture proposed Monday eliminating a loophole in food stamp eligibility requirements that would cut 3.1 million people from the program and save $2.5 billion.

Those who receive temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) will no longer be automatically eligible to get food stamps through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) if the rule is enacted, according to the USDA.

“Some states are taking advantage of loopholes that allow people to receive the SNAP benefits who would otherwise not qualify and for which they are not entitled,” said USDA Secretary Sonny Perdue, according to Reuters.

The USDA wants to change the current rule in 43 states that make TANF recipients automatically eligible for SNAP benefits. Instead, TANF recipients must apply for SNAP and submit to a review of their assets and income to determine if they are qualified…

Public Library Deletes Pictures Of Drag Queens Fondling Children At Story Hour – The Federalist

The new trend of hosting “drag queen story hour” at children’s libraries has been touted as part of diversification efforts. The practice of librarians bringing drag queens to read to children has come under fire for sexualizing children.

Librarians came to the defense of this programming, touting it as innocent and family oriented, but new photographs have emerged to belie that claim, of children obscenely draped over drag queens in a way that would be obviously disgusting if they were female beauty queens.

Such photos taken at a Drag Queen Story Hour event at St. John’s Library in Portland, Oregon circulated on Facebook. Parents complained about the event, showing the photos of children lounging atop of the costumed queens on the floor, grabbing at false breasts, and burying their faces in their bodies.

Religion Of Peace Update: Muslim Jihadis Gang-Rape, Torture, Murder 60-Year-Old Christian Virgin – Frontpage

Islamic jihadis recently gang-raped a 60-year-old Christian woman to triumphant cries of “Allahu Akbar!” before stoning her to death.

When no one in her small Christian village saw Susan Grigor (or “Gregory”) on July 9, in Idlib, Syria, the worried priest sent parishioners to search for her. They eventually found her mangled and bloodied corpse on the ground of a field adjacent to her home.

The autopsy revealed that Susan had been repeatedly raped and tortured over the course of nine hours before finally being murdered by stoning.

The men responsible for this heinous act are believed to be members of the al-Qaeda-linked jihadi group, al-Nusra (elements of which the Obama administration referred to and supported as “freedom fighters”).

Described as a pious Christian and “pillar in her community,” Susan had never married and lived her entire life as a virgin (suggesting that violent gang-rape was her first—and last—sexual experience)…

But the reality is that the high water mark for firearm murders was 1994 while 2017, the most recent year with complete data on incidents, shows a sharp drop. There were “16,136 [firearm murders] in 1994” but only “10,982” in 2017…

Baby Killing In America: Planned Parenthood’s Black Genocide – Rick Johnson

Planned Parenthood has fired its director, former emergency room physician Dr. Leana Wen, after only eight months on the job. Wen wanted to make Planned Parenthood more about women’s health issues, its stated purpose, and less about abortion. The abortion body parts scandal under her disgraced predecessor, Cecile Richards, decimated fundraising.

Planned Parenthood blamed Wen for attempting to make the organization more palatable to the public in the wake of widespread condemnation and disgust. According to Wen, “The new board leadership has determined that the priority of Planned Parenthood moving forward is to double down on abortion rights advocacy”.

They fired her for attempting to move the organization away from political activism to a focus on women’s health. She forgot, again in Wen’s words, that “Our core mission is providing, protecting and expanding access to abortion and reproductive health care.”

Judge To Slash Planned Parenthood Lawsuit Against Undercover Baby Parts Videos – Breitbart

A federal judge said Wednesday he intends to decisively cut back a lawsuit filed by Planned Parenthood against the undercover citizen journalists who documented the organization’s alleged sales of aborted baby body parts for profit.

In what was a surprising victory for the First Amendment rights of the citizen journalists, Judge William Orrick III of U.S. District Court in San Francisco, delivered a tentative ruling, which Center for Medical Progress (CMP), the producer of the videos, said Orrick instructed should be treated as substantially final.

In his ruling, Orrick wrote he was “inclined to exclude from the case all damages that stem from third parties’ reactions to the release of the video recordings as impermissible damages barred by the First Amendment absent a defamation claim.”

According to a report, members of Sanders’ staff have been using the senator’s own campaign rhetoric against him as they try to wrestle more pay from the self-described democratic socialist.

In a letter to Sanders campaign manager Faiz Shakir, the campaign staffers claim they “cannot be expected to build the largest grassroots organizing program in American history while making poverty wages,” the Washington Post reported…

Hilarious: Trump Campaign Trolls Leftists; Sells Plastic Straws On Campaign Website – Big League Politics

Pushing back against bizarre and unpopular left wing narrative that paper straws are somehow going to save the planet from global warming, destruction of the ocean, and virtually every other societal ill, President Donald Trump is now selling genuine plastic straws on the campaign website.

California and other Democrat stronghold states are, almost in some sort of coordinated effort, demanding paper straws be used in place of plastic. According to Business Insider, plastic straws have now been banned in the entire state of California, the city of Seattle, and in Starbucks stores and on American Airlines.

This is apparently in a misguided effort to save the oceans and marine life, even though the overwhelming majority of plastic pollution in the ocean comes from China, Indonesia, the Philippines, Vietnam, and Sri Lanka.

Most of the top 20 countries on the list of those who widely mismanage their plastic waste are in Asia, with a smattering of African countries included, along with Brazil…

A British flagged tanker has been seized by Iran as it was heading toward Saudi Arabia in the Persian Gulf. The vessel has been identified as the ‘Stena Impero’ which according to public tracking data was expected at the port of Al Jubail in Saudi Arabia; however, on Friday it dramatically veered off course and began sailing directly into Iranian waters.

Iran state media has confirmed the IRGC announced it has “captured a British tanker in the Persian Gulf” because the vessel was “violating international regulations”. CNN is reporting that US officials have confirmed Iran captured the British vessel in the Strait of Hormuz.

Trump’s EPA Is Cleaning Up Toxic Waste At Record Rates – Daily Caller

President Barack Obama never missed a chance to talk about his environmental record. From his clean power plan to the Paris climate accord to emissions limits on vehicles, he made environmental policy a priority of his administration.

Most of his environmental policy however, centered around his view of carbon dioxide as the most dangerous pollutant the United States produces. Climate change alarmism in the Democratic Party has deep roots, but the rise of a presidential candidate who made it such a major part of his platform, Al Gore, cemented climate change as a Democratic sacrament.

If you disagreed with the Obama administration’s prioritization of carbon, but still consider yourself an environmentalist, then you may have an ally in the White House – President Trump himself.

Carbon-centric energy and environmental policy is a black hole. Because of the gravity of the problem according to climate alarmists, the mitigation of climate change overwhelms any other environmental policy…

U.S. Warship Destroys Iranian Drone In Strait Of Hormuz – Sky News

President Donald Trump has said a US warship destroyed an Iranian drone in the Strait of Hormuz after it ignored warnings to back off. He said the USS Boxer took “defensive action” after the drone ignored repeated warnings and came within 1,000 yards of the ship. The president called it a “provocative and hostile” action by Iran.

The “fixed-wing unmanned aerial system… closed within a threatening range” at 10am local time on Thursday, according to a Pentagon statement. “The ship took defensive action against the UAS to ensure the safety of the ship and its crew,” it added.

However, Iran’s foreign minister told reporters at the United Nations “we have no information about losing a drone today”.

It comes amid a period of heightened tension between the two countries, which included Iran last month shooting down a U.S. drone it said was flying over the country. That incident saw Mr Trump call off a retaliatory strike at the last minute because he said too many people would have died…

UK Knife Crime Hits Record High, Despite London Mayor’s ‘Knife Control’ – Daily Caller

The U.K., most notably London, has experienced a sharp increase in knife related crime, despite “knife-control” efforts to curb the violence, newly released figures detail.

Knife crime in both England and Wales is up 8% from April 2018 to May 2019. U.K. police reports from 43 departments recorded 47,136 incidents involving sharp objects, an Office of National Statistics crime report says.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan implemented blade bans in London in April 2018, but doesn’t appear to be working as intended. Blades found on one’s person have increased 21% since 2018, the report details.

The 8% rise is calculated to equate to an increase of over 3,300 knife-related incidents compared with this time last year.

Lawsuit Indicates Seth Rich And Brother Were Leakers Of DNC Emails To Wikileaks – Washington Standard

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.

President Trump Ends Asylum Protections For Most Central American Migrants At U.S.-Mexico Border – The Hill

The Trump administration is moving to end asylum protections for most Central American migrants, the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security announced Monday.

According to text of the rule set to publish in the Federal Register on Tuesday, asylum seekers who pass through another country before reaching the United States will be ineligible for asylum when they reach the southern border.

The move marks an acceleration in the Trump administration’s efforts to reduce the number of migrants crossing the U.S. border with Mexico and has the potential to considerably reduce the number of asylum claims…

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

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

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

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

In the U.S. workforce, there are at least 7.6 million illegal aliens holding American jobs that would have otherwise gone to American citizens and legal immigrants. This is more than double the number of illegal aliens who were in the U.S. workforce in 1995 when just 3.6 million held American jobs…

Austin’s Mayor Takes West Coast Junket To ‘Learn’ How To Fail Bigger – PJ Media

Brain Implant Restores Partial Vision To Blind People – The Guardian

Partial sight has been restored to six blind people via an implant that transmits video images directly to the brain.

Some vision was made possible – with the participants’ eyes bypassed – by a video camera attached to glasses which sent footage to electrodes implanted in the visual cortex of the brain.

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

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

“By bypassing the eye completely you open the potential up to many, many more people. This is a complete paradigm shift for treating people with complete blindness. It is a real message of hope.”…

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

Good news for the U.S. and for thousands of asylum seekers who show up at the U.S. border. An immigration official has told the New Yorker that as the result of a deal between the U.S. and Guatemala, “asylum seekers from any country who either show up at U.S. ports of entry or are apprehended while crossing between ports of entry could be sent to seek asylum in Guatemala instead.”

The U.S. currently has a “remain in Mexico” policy, where the Mexican government agreed to keep several thousand migrants there, even granting work permits so that the asylum seekers could live while waiting for their U.S. court date.

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

Previously, the procedure was to simply give the asylum seeker a court date – now stretching out to five years or more – and let them go on their merry way, free to disappear into the interior of the U.S…

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

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

Epstein is accused by prosecutors of sending $350,000 to two possible co-conspirators in what the prosecutors say demonstrates a pattern of behavior that has been ongoing since 2002. Epstein was arrested last weekend with new charges of child trafficking, and if convicted faces up to 45 years in prison.

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

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

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

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

Excluding the volatile food and energy categories, prices were unchanged from the prior month.

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

Dow Jones Close Above 27,000 For First Time Ever – CNBC

The Dow Jones Industrial Average rallied to a record high on Thursday, led by UnitedHealth shares, after testimony by Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell this week that signaled easier monetary policy could be implemented later this month.

The Dow first closed above 26,000 in January of 2018, so it’s been a little more than a year-and-half trek between 1,000 point moves.

“It’s a very sad story,” Philip Undialu, governor of Hela told news agency Reuters, explaining the killings were part of a conflict running for years. “It was retaliation of a previous attack. Both attacks were made in an innocent community where people were not expecting it and all of us are in a state of shock.”…

University Of Chicago Scholar Proves Biologists Believe Life Begins At Conception – College Fix

Steven Jacobs has described some of his time in the academy as “agony.” The University of Chicago PhD spent the last half-decade in a grueling fight to gather and publish research related to the American abortion debate.

During that time he was ridiculed, mocked and defamed; accused of committing academic dishonesty, politicizing science and conducting his work with personal bias; compared to the Ku Klux Klan; and in general painted as an unprofessional radical who was, in one academic’s words, “not deserving of a PhD degree.”

All of this came about simply because Jacobs asked thousands of scientists several questions about when they believe human life begins – questions one respondent referred to as a “trap” and another called “horribly manipulative.”

The results of Jacobs’ work would eventually reveal a stunning fact about American academia in the field of biology: professors overwhelmingly agree with the pro-life position that human lives begin at conception…

Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta pushed back Wednesday against calls for him to stand down over his past involvement in a plea deal for financier Jeffrey Epstein, who was charged in federal court this week with sex trafficking – saying his office fought for a tougher punishment after state prosecutors were ready to let him “walk free.”

“Facts are important, and facts are being overlooked,” he said at a press conference, giving his most detailed account to date of the 2008 deal.

Acosta, who was U.S. attorney for Florida at the time, helped Epstein secure a plea deal that resulted in an 18-month sentence – he served just 13 months. The deal was criticized as lenient because Epstein could have faced a life sentence…

U.S. Approves $2.2 Billion Sale Of Tanks, Missiles To Taiwan – Washington Free Beacon

The Trump administration is selling $2.2 billion worth of tanks and missiles to Taiwan but has delayed exports of new F-16s over budget shortfalls in Taipei.

The main piece of the latest arms package announced Monday is the sale of 108 M1A2 Abrams frontline tanks and associated equipment, including tank rounds, machine guns, and tank-related gear.

“The proposed sale will help improve the security of the recipient and assist in maintaining political stability, military balance, and economic progress in the region,” said Army Lt. Gen. Charles Hooper in a transmittal notice to Congress. Hooper is director of the Pentagon’s Defense Security Cooperation Agency that is in charge of arms sales.

U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday scored a crucial victory in a Democratic-backed lawsuit that accuses him of violating anti-corruption provisions of the U.S. Constitution with his Washington hotel.

The Richmond, Virginia-based 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals issued a set of decisions instructing a lower court judge to dismiss the lawsuit filed against the Republican president in June 2017 by the Democratic attorneys general of Maryland and the District of Columbia.

The three-judge panel said the attorneys general lacked legal standing to bring the case. The court said the District of Columbia and Maryland’s interest “in enforcing the Emoluments Clauses is so attenuated and abstract that their prosecution of this case readily provokes the question of whether this action against the President is an appropriate use of the courts…

Epstein’s Lawyers Offer Plea Deal To Divulge Names In Exchange For 5-Year Sentence – Epoch Times

Alleged child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein will agree to give up names of individuals who took part in the trafficking ring he ran – in exchange for a substantially lower sentence.

A two-count indictment unsealed by federal prosecutors on July 8 charged the 66-year-old billionaire financier with sex trafficking and conspiracy charges. Epstein allegedly sexually exploited and abused dozens of minor girls at his homes in Manhattan, New York, and Palm Beach, Florida, among other locations.

The charges carry with them a maximum sentence of 45 years in jail. At Epstein’s age, the charges are tantamount to “a life sentence” Geoffrey Berman, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, said at a press conference.

Shocker: Iran Violates Nuclear Deal’s Enrichment Limitations – Frontpage

The Iranian regime is boasting that it has broken through the uranium enrichment level stipulated in the Obama administration’s disastrous nuclear deal, known formally as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

A New York Times article on Monday referenced a claim by a spokesman for Iran’s atomic energy agency “that the country had surpassed a limit of 3.67 percent uranium enrichment and was prepared to go further.”

ISNA, an Iranian news outlet, quoted the same spokesman as saying that Iran had already exceeded 4.5 percent and that “increasing number of centrifuges and enriching uranium to 20 percent are options for Iran’s third step in reducing its commitments to the nuclear deal.”

It is only a short technical step from the 20 percent level to the nuclear weapons-grade level of 90 percent, according to nuclear nonproliferation experts. The speed with which Iran is moving to reverse its uranium enrichment commitments exposes the fatal flaw of the sunset clauses in the JCPOA…

Winning: Government Dependency Plunges Under Trump – Issues & Insights

Friday’s jobs report showed that the economy created 224,000 new jobs, yet the unemployment rate edged up to 3.7%. Both are welcome news. The unemployment rate went up because 158,000 rejoined the labor market. These are people who previously didn’t have a job and weren’t looking for one.

The labor market is tight enough that people who’d given up on work are getting lured back into the job market. And they’re finding work. As of June, there were 5.6 million more people with jobs than when President Trump took office – despite claims by prominent economists that the economy was already at full employment when he was sworn in.

The healthy labor market has resulted in something even more important yet little noticed: A sharp trend away from dependency on federal welfare and other benefits. Take a look at the numbers:

The administration’s focus on asking broadly about citizenship for the first time since 1950 reflects the enormous political stakes and potential costs in the once-a-decade population count that determines the allocation of seats in the House of Representatives for the next 10 years and the distribution of some $675 billion in federal spending…

Southern California Hit By 7.1-Magnitude Earthquake Days After Earlier Tremor – Sky News

A 7.1-magnitude earthquake has hit California less than two days after another strong tremor, rattling parts of LA and causing fire and building damage near its rural epicentre. The quake hit at 8.19pm local time 11 miles from Ridgecrest in the Mojave Desert, the site of Thursday’s 6.4-magnitude quake.

Offices in downtown Los Angeles shook for around 30 seconds, and the quake was also felt in the Hollywood Hills, Las Vegas and parts of Mexico.

The earthquake is the strongest to hit the region in 20 years, with experts giving it an early rating of 6.9 to 7.1 on the Richter scale.

There are “significant reports of structure fires, mostly as a result of gas leaks or gas line breaks” in Ridgecrest, said Mark Ghillarducci, head of the California Office of Emergency Services. He said the full extent of the damage would not be revealed until daybreak on Saturday.

There have been minor injuries but no reports so far of anyone seriously hurt or killed…

.

.
Former Vice President Joe Biden (D) praised far-left freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) during a CNN interview that aired Friday, describing her as a “brilliant, bright woman.”

While he hit a range of subjects during the exhaustive interview, he praised the Democrat socialist lawmaker, despite marketing himself as a moderate Democrat.

“That’s what this election is about. I’m happy to debate that issue and all those issues with my friends because guess what, look who won the races. Look who won last time out,” Biden said, referring to the extreme left’s victories in the midterm election.

Ocasio-Cortez beat incumbent former Rep. Joseph Crowley (D-NY) by a little more than 4,000 votes – 15,897 to Crowley’s 11,761….

Utah: Over 30 Armed Teachers Train To Take Out Active Shooters – Breitbart

Over 30 armed teachers gathered in Spanish Fork, Utah, for police training in locating and taking out active shooters. The Associated Press reports that the training occurred “inside a warehouse set up to look like a school.”

In one scenario, school psychologist Nancy Miramontes had to navigate hallways and walls, find the attacker, and shoot him. She “fired three shots,” one of which would have hit the active shooter in the forehead had the scenario been real life.

Miramontes received praise from the officer nearby. She had demonstrated that she could shift from nurturer to defender by recognizing a threat and removing it. Afterward, Miramontes said, “I know how to protect myself and my students now; I know what to expect if the worst happens.”

Utah is one of a number of states that allow teachers to be armed on campus for classroom defense. Teachers can be armed in Colorado and Florida after receiving a certain amount of training…

DemoNazi Congresswoman Secretly Sending Staff To Mexico To Coach Migrants On How To Game System – Daily Wire
.

.
Democrat Rep. Veronica Escobar (TX) is secretly sending staff to Mexico to find and coach migrants who are trying to enter the United States and is instructing them how to “exploit a loophole” to game the asylum process, multiple U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials allege.

The Washington Examiner reports that, according to the National Border Patrol Council’s El Paso chapter and several CBP agents, Escobar’s staff is trying to find migrants that have been returned from El Paso, Texas to Mexico “under the ‘remain in Mexico’ policy, then coaching them to pretend they cannot speak Spanish to exploit a loophole letting them return to the U.S.”

A senior union official shared evidence supporting their claims with the Examiner…

New York City Backs Off Gun Restrictions To Avoid Supreme Court Defeat – Daily Caller

The Supreme Court should dismiss a challenge to New York City’s gun transportation ban because a new ordinance will moot the case, city lawyers told the justices Wednesday.

The ordinance and a newly enacted state law will give the plaintiffs who challenged the transportation ban everything they have sought in court, making dismissal the appropriate course, city lawyers wrote in a letter to the high court.

“The new city regulation gives petitioners everything they have sought in this lawsuit,” assistant corporation counsel Richard Dearing wrote. “The new state law, upon signature by the governor, will make the case doubly moot.”

If the case is not dismissed, the city will continue arguing the dispute is moot in a legal brief due Aug. 5.

“If, however, this Court prefers to allow briefing (and potentially oral argument) to play out, respondents will file a brief on the designated due date maintaining in greater detail that the case is moot,” the letter reads…

Michigan Truckers Win Court Battle Against Union Goons – Big League Politics

Last week, three Michigan truck drivers won a federal settlement against the Teamsters Local 20 union. The dispute emerged when the union took dues and initiation fees from the truckers’ paychecks despite not joining the union in question.

The National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation submitted unfair labor practice charges to the National Labor Relations Board on behalf of former employees at Syncreon America, Inc: Wendell Collins and Damani Mincey, and current employee Arthur Caple, according to a recent blog post.

National Right to Work Foundation President Mark Mix said, “Foundation staff attorneys are committed to vigorously defending workers’ rights from Big Labor’s coercive practices, including in Right to Work states like Michigan.”

He added, “Unfortunately, Michigan has become a battleground for worker freedoms as scofflaw union officials continually flout the Right to Work law and illegally subject independent-minded workers to forced union dues.”…

The American media will be hit with nearly 12,000 job cuts in 2019, the highest number since the economic crisis of 2009.

“The consultancy Challenger Gray & Christmas reported this week media companies, which include movies, television, publishing, music, and broadcast and print news, announced plans to cut 15,474 jobs so far this year, of which 11,878 of which were from news organizations” reports AFP.

This is a huge increase over 2017’s 4,062 media job cuts and, according to the article at least, this is primarily happening due to paywalls and ad revenue. A number of media outlets are installing paywalls in the hope their customers will start to pay for something they are used to getting for free…

Officials At Chicago Airport Seize 32 Pounds Of Rat Meat From Passenger – Fox News

Sorry, Chicago. You’ll have to get your imported rat meat elsewhere. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport have confirmed the seizure of 32 pounds of rat meat, taken from a passenger arriving in Chicago from the Ivory Coast late last month.

The CBP said the passenger himself alerted officials to the rat meat after arriving on his June 26 flight.

“He declared it,” Steve Bansbach, the spokesman for the CBP’s Chicago bureau, confirmed to Fox News. “He claimed he had meat during inspection. We found that, yes, he had African rat meat – 32 pounds of it.”

The main concerns with imported meats, according to Bansbach, is the possibility of introducing African Swine Fever (ASF), or other contagious diseases, into the United States. Meats from ASF-afflicted areas or countries are prohibited from entry, according to the CBP website…

Oh, The Humanity: Jim Beam Aging Facility Burns Down In Kentucky – Breitbart

At least 45,000 barrels of Jim Beam bourbon were destroyed in a massive warehouse fire in Kentucky on Tuesday night.

Around 11:30 p.m., two warehouses full of bourbon caught fire at a Jim Beam aging facility. Woodford County Emergency Management Director Drew Chandler told local CBS affiliate WKYT that just one building full of bourbon barrels initially caught fire, but the flames soon spread to the other.

That second warehouse proved easier to quench than the first, which was still burning unabated five hours later. Chandler predicted that firefighters would still be on the scene late Wednesday night…

AG Barr Must Stick RICO On Antifa, The 21st Century’s KKK – Thomas McArdle

On Saturday in Portland, Oregon, freelance journalist Andy Ngo was beaten so badly by a cowardly, masked Antifa mob, he suffered a brain hemorrhage. The weapons included eggs and the spraying of “milk shakes” suspected of including quick-drying cement, which together temporarily blinded Ngo. The local police precinct was within view, yet video of the episode shows no intervention.

Covering your face to avoid identification so you can beat and intimidate in the name of your political agenda and avoid arrest and prosecution – sound familiar? It’s practically the definition of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan.

Nearly 50 years ago, a Democratic Congress passed and a Republican president signed into law an extraordinary measure designed to make prosecutions stick and put organized criminal organizations such as the Klan and the Mafia in prison: the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act.

RICO and Antifa are a match made in heaven…
