Prison Records Were Falsified From Morning Epstein Committed Suicide, Report Says – Daily Wire

The two prison guards in charge of monitoring convicted pedophile and alleged sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein on the morning that he committed suicide reportedly “fell asleep,” did not check on him for hours, and then falsified prison records to hide their actions.

The new developments in the investigation into Epstein’s suicide come after the Justice Department announced on Tuesday that the two guards had been placed on administrative leave and the warden of the prison was being temporarily reassigned.

“The two correctional officers in the special housing unit where Mr. Epstein was held – 9 South – falsely recorded in a log that they had checked on the financier, who was facing sex trafficking charges, every 30 minutes, as was required,” The New York Times reported Tuesday night, citing a law enforcement official and a prison official. “Such false entries in an official log could constitute a federal crime.”

The Times noted that the two guards were reportedly asleep for three hours, during which time Epstein committed suicide…

A blood-soaked man screaming ‘Allahu Akbar’ has gone on a knife rampage through central Sydney before being taken down by brave bystanders, including three Britons. Witnesses said the man tried to stab several people near a busy intersection in Australia’s largest city.

Two Previously Deported Illegal Aliens Rape 11-Year-Old Girl In Maryland – Federalist Papers

A pair of undocumented immigrants have been arrested for brutally raping a middle school girl in Maryland on more than one occasion. The two men, Mauricio Barrera-Navidad, 29 and Carlos Palacios-Amaya, 28 were both friends with the victim’s brother, WJLA reported.

Last month, the victim – now 12-years-old – spoke with a social worker at her middle school in Germantown. Talking through tears, the girl shared the painful details about what both men allegedly did to her.

In September 2018, the victim was introduced to her older brother’s friend, Palacios-Amaya. Over the course of the next few months, the then 27-year-old man raped the middle schooler on multiple occasions, authorities allege. The victim recalled one instance where Palacios-Amaya “used his cell phone to video record the two of them having sex,” police noted in court documents.

The victim told the social worker that Palacios-Amaya would often pressure her not to attend school so that she could stay home while her parents were at work…

U.S. Delays China tariffs On Electronics, Toys Until December – Washington Times

The Trump administration announced Tuesday it will delay imposing tariffs on some Chinese imports, including toys, clothing, electronics and other popular holiday gifts, until December.

The announcement that the administration would delay the 10% tariffs on those items until Dec.15 sent U.S. stocks sharply higher. The Dow Jones Industrial Average was up more than 400 points at mid-day.

President Trump had planned to extend levies to $300 billion worth of Chinese imports Sept. 1, as the two superpowers struggle to reach a trade deal. U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said that plan is moving forward, though his office decided to offer a reprieve on some items, including cell phones, laptop computers, video game consoles, certain toys, computer monitors and certain types of footwear and clothing…

Predator-Style Thermal Vision Could Help Blind People ‘See’ With Brain Chip – New York Post

Researchers have invented new bionic eye technology that allows patients to “see” again through special glasses that send electrical signals to an implant in the wearer’s brain. These signals stimulate the implant so it gives a pattern of light to the visual cortex of the brain, which can be interpreted as a visual image.

Scientists from visual prosthetic company Second Second Sight Medical Products are trialing the artificial vision tech, called the Orion Visual Cortical Prosthesis System, in a small number of patients. It consists of a small camera on a pair of glasses, a brain implant and a processing unit that the patient can wear on their hip.

The camera on the glasses captures images which it then sends to the video processing unit and this then converts what the wearer is looking at into electrical impulses that create a perceived image on the wearer’s brain via brain implant stimulation.

The implant is installed above the occipital lobe during surgery on the back of the patient’s head…

Naked Alleged Burglar Arrested After Being Found Stuck In A Chimney – Breitbart

A naked man who allegedly tried to burglarize a Los Angeles home was arrested Sunday morning after being found stuck in a chimney. The man – who is unidentified but has been arrested on burglary charges – allegedly tried to burglarize a home in the Ladera Heights neighborhood around 7:40 a.m. until a couple confronted him, causing him to flee to another home.

But when the alleged burglar tried to escape, he got stuck in a nearby home’s chimney. Police were called to the scene and deployed a search that involved K9s and a helicopter to look for the alleged intruder.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department received a report 40 minutes later about a naked man stuck in a chimney in an area bordering Ladera Heights. The neighbor who discovered the naked man, Portia Woffard, said she had heard voices coming from a strange place in the home.

“I’ll f*cking ruin your sh*t! I’ll f*cking throw you down these stairs like a f*cking punk!” Cuomo bellowed.

California Introduces Radical Anti-Semitic High School Curriculum – Washington Free Beacon

The state of California has introduced “blatantly anti-Semitic and anti-Israel” lessons into its official high school curriculum, drawing outrage and concern in the state’s Jewish and pro-Israel communities, according to multiple sources involved in the controversy.

The California Department of Education is facing backlash after permitting a host of anti-Israel activists to build a statewide educational curriculum that demonizes the Jewish state and is said to be fostering hatred of Jewish and Israeli-American students, sources said.

Already, 83 pro-Israel and anti-discrimination organizations have petitioned the state’s education department to reform its Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum (ESMC) to remove multiple instances of what they say is anti-Semitic and anti-Israel bias.

Trump Ending Welfare-Dependent Immigration, Saving Taxpayers Billions – Breitbart

President Trump is set to save American taxpayers billions of dollars as his administration announces a new rule on Monday that will essentially ban welfare-dependent legal immigrants from permanently resettling in the United States.

A new regulation set to be published by the Trump administration will ensure that legal immigrants would be less likely to secure a permanent residency in the U.S. if they have used any forms of welfare in the past, including using subsidized healthcare services, food stamps, and public housing.

The regulation will be a boon for American taxpayers in the form of an annual $57.4 billion tax cut – the amount taxpayers spend every year on paying for the welfare, crime, and schooling costs of the country’s mass importation of 1.5 million new, mostly low-skilled legal immigrants…

Dumber Than Dirt: Gropey Joe Biden Claims He Was Vice President When 2018 Parkland Shooting Occured – Washington Free Beacon

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden on Saturday falsely claimed he was the vice president during the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

Biden was speaking at the Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund’s Presidential Gun Sense Forum in Des Moines, Iowa when he confused himself with Vice President Mike Pence, who is still serving in that role.

“The people who are going to make a difference in terms of giving some backbone to those Republicans in particular and a few Democrats who are afraid to take them on–all of you,” Biden said. “We have to go into their communities, take them on. That’s why Mayor Bloomberg is doing such an incredible job. He’s using his fortune and his money to increase the safety of the American people.”

Feds Investigating Violation Of Girls’ Civil Rights In Connecticut After Trans Athletes Smoke Competition – Daily Wire

The U.S. Department of Education Office has agreed to investigate a violation of girls’ civil rights in Connecticut following a complaint filed in Boston concerning two biologically male transgender teens triumphing over biologically female competitors in high school track.

‘The Hunt’ Cancelled For Graphic Depiction Of Violence Against Conservatives – Big League Politics

A movie about elite liberals paying to hunt conservative Americans in a safari theme park has been cancelled after a wave of criticism, accusing the film of insensitivity to a recent wave of political violence across America.

The movie starred Betty Gelpin as a kidnapped ‘deplorable’ who seeks to rally other victims of the liberals to escape their predicament.

Queer Mayor Buttigieg Sued For Hiding ID Cards For Illegal Aliens – WorldNetDaily

Government watchdog Judicial Watch is suing the administration of Mayor Pete Buttigieg in South Bend, Indiana, for documentation of its hiring of a private organization to create ID cards for illegal aliens.

“Mayor Buttigieg’s city administration in South Bend is in cover-up mode on his work for special ID cards to make it easier for illegal aliens to stay in the United States contrary to law,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “Judicial Watch made simple open records requests and have faced nothing but games from the Buttigieg administration – which is why we had to sue.”

The organization announced Tuesday it filed the case against South Bend for records of communications between Buttigieg, a Democratic hopeful for the 2020 presidential nomination, and La Casa de Amistad, a not-for-profit corporation.

Conservative Activist Cleans 12 Tons Of Trash From Baltimore Streets With 200 Volunteers – Epoch Times

Some 200 volunteers combed through the streets of northwest Baltimore on Aug. 5, cleaning up trash and weeds in an “Americans Helping Americans” event organized by conservative activist Scott Presler.

Starting at 7 a.m. at the corner of North Fulton Avenue and Westwood Avenue, the volunteers spread through the surrounding blocks. By 8 p.m. they had collected over 12 tons of trash – destination junkyard. Many locals expressed gratitude to the participants, and some joined in, Presler said in a phone call.

He learned from talking to the locals that “the people of Baltimore love their country and love their city and they’re proud to live there,” but the government is not doing enough to solve the trash problem – specifically illegal dumping at abandoned buildings.

Hey, New York! How’s That $15 An Hour Minimum Wage Working For Ya? – Rick Moran

The lede from this Wall Street Journal article says it all: “More than six months after the $15 minimum wage went into effect in New York City, business leaders and owners say the increased labor costs have forced them to cut staff, eliminate work shifts and raise prices.”

America Is Drowning In The Left’s Lies About Trump – Dennis Prager

The president of the United States, Donald Trump, never said there were “fine” Nazis or Ku Klux Klansmen.

U.S. Designates China As Currency Manipulator For First Time In Decades – Epoch Times

The U.S. government has determined that China is manipulating its currency and will engage with the International Monetary Fund to eliminate unfair competition from Beijing, U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said in a statement on Monday, Aug. 5.

The move brings already tense U.S.-Chinese relations to a boil and fulfills U.S. President Donald Trump’s promise to label China a currency manipulator for the first time since 1994.

The U.S. action follows China allowing its yuan to weaken past the key 7-per-dollar level on Aug. 5 for the first time in more than a decade. Beijing later said it would stop buying U.S. agricultural products, inflaming a yearlong trade war with the United States.

The sharp 1.4 percent drop in the yuan comes days after Trump stunned financial markets by vowing to impose 10 percent tariffs on the remaining $300 billion of Chinese imports from Sept. 1, abruptly breaking a brief ceasefire in a bruising trade war that has disrupted global supply chains and slowed growth…

Iranian Government Pirates Seize Another Oil Tanker – PJ Media

The Iranian Revolutionary Guard has captured another oil tanker under the pretense that the ship was carrying Iranian oil to be sold to foreign customers.

This excuse is ridiculous because the oil industry in Iran is totally controlled by the government. This means that even if the tanker was smuggling oil, it had already paid someone in the government for it – probably a lesser-ranking official who didn’t rate “protection.”

Currently, Iran is under sanctions for threatening its neighbors and carrying out illegal missile tests. It should be noted that many Iranian leaders have enriched themselves smuggling oil using various cutouts and fake companies to hide the transactions. The fig leaf of “oil smuggling” can’t hide Iran’s egregious violation of international law.

Politicizing Murder With Lies – Bruce Thornton
.

.
The bodies in Gilroy, El Paso, and Dayton were still in the morgue when the progressive “carrion-picking crows” started politicizing the murders. But everything they said about gun control, “white nationalism,” and Trump’s culpability was based on lies and stale clichés recycled for political gain.

The argument that more gun control laws will lessen substantially such murders has been disproven with facts over and over. In the Nineties, gun homicides fell by half, even as the number of guns increased 56%.

The reason has been obvious since Prohibition in the Twenties: if enough people want something, black markets and criminal gangs will exist to get it for them…

Illegal Alien Charged With Murdering Four Americans Claims He Is ‘Mentally Disabled’ – Breitbart

An illegal alien charged with murdering four Americans over the course of a week in Nevada is set to claim that he is “mentally disabled,” his defense attorneys have confirmed.

Wilbur Ernesto Martinez-Guzman, a 20-year-old illegal alien from El Salvador, was charged with murdering 56-year-old Connie Koontz, 74-year-old Sophia Renken, 81-year-old Gerald David, and his 80-year-old wife, Sharon David, between January 10 and 15 after prosecutors said he was looking to steal money from his victims to buy more meth. The state of Nevada is seeking the death penalty.

Now, Martinez-Guzman’s lawyers are expected to have the accused murderer declared “mentally disabled,” KOLO8 News reported. Already, the illegal alien’s attorney has said his client’s IQ could potentially be lower than 66 and that he is planning to go to El Salvador to gather additional evidence.

Connie Koontz, a mother, was allegedly murdered by the illegal alien just a day before her mother’s 80th birthday…

A clash between pro and anti-Tommy Robinson protesters in central London has seen a heavy police presence try to stop the violence. Supporters of the jailed former English Defence League leader marched down Regent Street demanding Robinson be freed from prison.

Robinson, whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, was handed a nine-month sentence at the Old Bailey last month – of which he will serve just nine-and-a-half weeks – after he was found to have committed contempt of court.

Porn-Addicted Florida Man Steals $200,000 From Family To Give To Webcam Girl, Then Kills Them – Crime Online

A Florida man has been convicted of killing his parents and brother after they demanded he stop communicating with a woman whom he met on a pornographic webcam site, the Orlando Sentinel reports.

On Wednesday, jurors found Grant Amato, 29, guilty in connection with the January shooting deaths of his parents, Chad Amato, 59, and Margaret Amato, 61, as well as his brother, Cody Amato, 31.

Authorities reportedly alleged that Grant Amato had stolen more than $200,000 from his parents and brother to send to a woman named Silvie, a Bulgarian webcam model. Amato also allegedly sold guns he stole from Cody and had taken out a $65,000 loan on the family’s house, all in an effort to present himself as successful and wealthy.

“Grant fell in love with a woman named Silvie,” Assistant State Attorney Domenick Leo told jurors during closing arguments, according to the Orlando Sentinel. “Not only did he fall in love with her, he became obsessed with her – to the point that she’s all that mattered.”…

Mom Leaves Infant In Running Car To Do Shots In Club, Hurls Racial Slur At Cops During Arrest – Crime Online

A mother in Texas was arrested early Sunday, accused of leaving her infant baby asleep in a running car as she drank alcohol in a nightclub.

An affidavit charged that Vaughan admitted to having two shots after she drove to the club to get her husband and went inside to use the bathroom. Her blood alcohol was reportedly later found to be 0.148, nearly twice the legal limit.

Illegal Alien Raped 13-Year-Old Girl Multiple Times – USIACR

An El Salvadoran citizen who has been living illegally in the United States for almost a decade has been arrested and now faces multiple charges of first degree rape of a child.

The U.S. Marshal’s Fugitive Task Force and U.S. Border Patrol-New Orleans Sector agents arrested Andres Fuentes-Castro on July 18. Fuentes-Castro has been charged with three counts of first degree rape of a child between 2014 and 2016.

In 2007, Fuentes-Castro was briefly detained in Baton Rouge after a traffic stop, but he was released because he had come to the United States under Temporary Protective Status, according to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

In 2010, Fuentes-Castro’s protective status expired, and he failed to return to his country. He is being held at Orleans Parish Prison until he can be returned to Baton Rouge for trial on the rape charges.

Fuentes-Castro will eventually be deported to El Salvador, according to CBP…

Analysis: Dem Candidates Call For More Than $200 Trillion In Spending – Washington Free Beacon

Totaling up these proposals gives taxpaying voters a sense of the budget priorities of the average Democratic candidate.

That overall figure is an undercount, as it is based only on proposals for which the Free Beacon could identify actual spending estimates. The true figure is much larger. For example, Sen.

China Gathers Forces On Hong Kong Border Amid Unrest – Zero Hedge

“These are extraordinary times and states have a legal and moral duty to do everything in their power to ensure leaders seeking the highest offices meet minimal standards, and to restore public confidence.

Illegal Alien Bought Baby For $80 In Guatemala To Get Priority Release In U.S. – Epoch Times

Children are being rented, bought, recycled, and kidnapped so that single adults, mostly men from Central America, can gain quick release into the United States after crossing the border illegally. The cost of renting a child varies.

“We’ve had indications… that it could cost anywhere from a few hundred – or even in some cases, less than $100 – up to $1,000 or more,” said Kevin McAleenan, acting Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), during a congressional hearing on July 18.

McAleenan said in one case, a 51-year-old illegal alien had purchased a 6-month-old baby for $80 in Guatemala so that he could easily get into the United States. The man, a Honduran national, confessed to border agents when he was faced with a DNA test.

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.

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…

Comey’s Cyber Spy In White House Stole Classified Material; Is Now Working For CNN – Gateway Pundit

Yesterday a report was released that corrupt and fired former FBI Director James Comey had a spy in the Trump White House. We know he stole information and shared it with Comey, the question is, did he try to frame the President as well?

As of yesterday we now know that corrupt former FBI Director James Comey had an agent inside the White House reporting back to the FBI about Trump and his aides. It’s clear that Comey’s spy, Anthony Ferrante, was feeding information that he stole back to Comey. That is what spies do. But what is not yet clear is whether Ferrante, who now works for CNN, attempted to frame the President as well, from within the White House.

In March 2019 CNN reported that their cyber expert Anthony Ferrante was used by Buzzfeed as an expert in the lawsuit against them by Aleksej Gubarev…

Trump Threatens To Slap Tariffs And Other Penalties On Guatemala In Immigration Fight – Business Insider

President Donald Trump accused Guatemala of backtracking on an agreement to take in more Central American asylum seekers on Monday, threatening to hit it with tariffs and other punishing measures.

“Guatemala, which has been forming Caravans and sending large numbers of people, some with criminal records, to the United States, has decided to break the deal they had with us on signing a necessary Safe Third Agreement,” the president wrote on Twitter. “We were ready to go.”

He said the US is now looking at the “BAN, Tariffs, Remittance Fees, or all of the above,” without offering any details. The White House and the Guatemalan foreign ministry did not immediately respond to emails requesting comment.

“Guatemala has not been good,” Trump added. “Big U.S. taxpayer dollars going to them was cut off by me 9 months ago.”…

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)…

Despite endless gun violence reports put forward by the establishment media, the dirty little secret is firearm homicides have plummeted over the past 25 years. Yet most Americans, particularly Democrats, believe firearm murders have risen period.

Washington Post analysis shows Democrats, followed closely by independents, are more apt to believe firearm murders have increased. And this feeds the Democrat psyche which is already more prone to support an expansion of gun control laws.

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.”

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.

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:

Some readers might have dismissed warnings of “Lehman-style” scenes outside Deutsche Bank’s global offices as hysteria related to the bank’s restructuring. But the mass firings that will eventually cull some 18,000 employees, roughly 20% of the bank’s global workforce, have already begun.

After announcing the bank’s most radical restructuring plan in two decades, CEO Christian Sewing on Sunday revealed that the bank would immediately move ahead with the steep job cuts.

On Monday, whole teams of equity traders in Tokyo and the bank’s other Asian offices were let go, the first step toward winding down the bank’s equities sales and trading operation.

The bank is also planning cutbacks to its fixed income, and rates, trading business. Shares bounced in pre-market trading on Sunday, but have since turned lower; in recent trade, DB shares were off nearly 2%…

U.N. Report: Venezuelan Special Forces Murdered Thousands, Altered Evidence So Victims Looked Like Resisters – Daily Wire

A report from the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights on human rights in Venezuela between January 2018 and May 2019 states that thousands of Venezuelans have been murdered by forces loyal to the government of President Nicholas Maduro and quite often the forces would manipulate the evidence to make it look as though the victims were resisting authority.

As The Miami Herald reported:

Special Action Forces described by witnesses as “death squads” killed 5,287 people in 2018 and another 1,569 by mid-May of this year, in what are officially termed by the Venezuelan government “Operations for the Liberation of the People,” U.N. investigators reported…

Deep State Vermin Bob Mueller To Testify Before Back-To-Back House Committees In Mid July – USA Today

Former special counsel Robert Mueller has agreed to testify publicly before Congress on July 17 after Democrats issued subpoenas to compel him to appear, the chairmen of two House committees announced.

Mueller’s unusual back-to-back testimony in front of the House Judiciary and Intelligence committees is likely to be the most highly anticipated congressional hearing in years, particularly given Mueller’s resolute silence throughout his two-year investigation into Russian contacts with President Donald Trump’s campaign.

Mueller never responded to angry, public attacks from Trump, nor did he ever personally join his prosecutors in court or make announcements of criminal charges from the team.

His sole public statement came from the Justice Department podium last month as he announced his departure, when he sought to explain his decision to not indict Trump or to accuse him of criminal conduct…

There have been no public meetings between Washington and Pyongyang since the breakdown of the Hanoi summit. But the prospects for a resumption of U.S.-North Korea diplomacy have brightened since Trump and Kim recently exchanged personal letters.

Trump Creates Council To Remove Regulatory Barriers To Affordable Housing Headed By Ben Carson – UPI

President Donald Trump signed an executive order Tuesday creating a council the White House said will work to remove barriers to developing affordable housing. The council will consist of members from eight federal agencies that will work with state, local and tribal leaders to reduce regulations related to developing new forms of affordable housing.

“We’re lifting up forgotten communities, creating exciting new opportunities and helping every American find their path to the American Dream,” Trump said of the order.

The White House stated that more than 25 percent of the cost of a new home is directly related to federal, state and local regulations and up to 42 percent for some new multifamily constrictions.

Further, it cited Census Bureau data showing that seven homes were built for every 10 households formed between 2010 and 2016 and that high housing prices are often linked to increased homelessness…

Indiana Church Pays Off Millions Of Dollars Of Medical Debt For Residents – KMGH

It’s Saturday night service at Northview Church in Carmel, Indiana. As parishioners pack the pews, they start singing about the power of giving. Preaching from the pulpit, senior pastor Steve Poe focuses the night’s sermon on how small donations can have a big impacts.

This Indiana-based church is truly helping their neighbors in need! Members of this congregation raised $20,000 in donations and used that money to help pay off more than $3.6 million of medical debt for Indiana citizens.

“That will have an impact on 2,500 people or more,” says Poe.

With Poe’s church buying 30 percent of all medical debt in seven different zip codes across greater Indiana, the pastor says this is financial rehabilitation through religion. In a few weeks, the families whose debts will be covered will receive letters.

“What that does then, it will notify their creditors that their debt has been cleared, which gives them the opportunity to start again without this damaging debt,” Poe says…

Scumbag Shoots Infant In The Head After Being Rejected By Her Mother – New York Post

A 10-month-old Fresno girl was shot in the head Sunday by a man who was apparently angry that the baby’s mother had rejected him, California police said.

The baby, Fayth Percy, was rushed to the hospital, where she underwent surgery to remove bullet fragments from her head, Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer told reporters. She is in critical but stable condition.

The alleged shooting took place at a home in Fresno. A man there tried to grab the mother’s hand but she rejected his advances, police said. The mother later left the home with the baby and another male friend, police said. As they were driving away, the suspect, Marco Antonio Echartea, 23, began shooting at the car, police said.

“At some point when he got close, he pulled out a handgun and fired three rounds into the driver’s-side window, which was up,” Dyer said. “One of those rounds struck baby Fayth on the side of the head as she was being held by her mother.”…

“It Would Be An Earthquake”: Three Chinese Banks Tumble After U.S. Threatens To Cut Them Off From SWIFT – Zero Hedge

In news that initially did not receive much prominence, on Monday a U.S. judge found three large Chinese banks – reportedly the state-owned Bank of Communications, China Merchants Bank, and Shanghai Pudong Development Bank – in contempt for refusing to comply with subpoenas in an investigation into North Korean sanctions violations.

This could open the door for them to be cut off from the U.S. financial system, i.e. SWIFT.

“Should it occur, to say that China will not take that well is as large an understatement as one can conceive of. It would be an earthquake”, commented Rabobank’s Michael Every.

The stunning development follows a May district judge order that three Chinese banks comply with U.S. investigators’ demands that they hand over records connected to the alleged movement of tens of millions of dollars in violation of international sanctions on North Korea.

After Public Outcry, British Appeals Court Reportedly Overrules Decision To Force Disabled Woman To Abort Her Baby – Daily Wire

On Monday, after a public outcry ensued when a British judge ordered a young disabled woman to have an abortion, the English Court of Appeal reportedly overturned the decision.

British Court Orders Disabled Woman To Have Abortion Against Her Will – PJ Media

The case, which was decided on Friday, was brought to court by a National Health Service trust that oversees the disabled woman’s care. Both the pregnant woman and her mother are against abortion, as it is against their Catholic faith.

The grandmother is reportedly a retired midwife and a Catholic member of the Nigerian Igbo community.

She offered to care for her grandchild when it is born, but the pro-abortion activist lawyer-turned judge in the case, Justice Nathalie Lieven, decided that it would be “too difficult for the grandmother to look after both the daughter and the grandchild,” according to the Catholic Herald…

Supreme Court Rejects Atheists’ Attempt To Remove ‘In God We Trust’ From U.S. Currency – Daily Wire

The U.S. Supreme Court has rejected a case filed by atheists to remove the phrase “In God We Trust” from all currency issued by the Department of Treasury.

Climate Hysteria Fails Again: Feds Remove Warning That Glaciers ‘Will All Be Gone’ By 2020 – Big League Politics

The National Park Service (NPS) is trying to backtrack from their failed predictions of climate doom. They recently removed a warning from a Glacier National Park claiming that glaciers “will all be gone” by 2020 due to global warming fears.

The predictions, which were based off of faulty computer models in the early 2000s, have been invalidated by mother nature. There has been much more snowfall than what was previously anticipated by the so-called experts in recent years.

“Glacier retreat in Glacier National Park speeds up and slows down with fluctuations in the local climate,” said the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) to The Daily Caller News Foundation.

“Those signs were based on the observation prior to 2010 that glaciers were shrinking more quickly than a computer model predicted they would,” the USGS added. “Subsequently, larger than average snowfall over several winters slowed down that retreat rate and the 2020 date used in the NPS display does not apply anymore.”…

Democratic presidential front-runner Joe Biden induced an internet-wide cringe Saturday when he tweeted a photo of a friendship bracelet with former President Barack Obama — an ally who has not endorsed his candidacy.

“Happy #BestFriendsDay to my friend, @BarackObama,” Biden tweeted.

“This is a joke, right?,” replied David Axelrod, a former top aide to the Obama-Biden campaigns of 2008 and 2012.

“‘Fraid not,” responded conservative commentator, but frequent President Trump critic, Bill Kristol.

While seemingly warm and friendly personally, Biden’s relationship with Obama has been complicated politically…

Illegal Alien Arrested On Money Laundering And Drug Charges Also Had Warrant For Child Sex Abuse In Mexico – Big League Politics

An illegal alien living in Arizona is being returned home to Mexico to face charges for allegedly sexually abusing a child after he was arrested in the United States for alleged money laundering and drug crimes.

“A Mexican national, wanted in his native country for sexual abuse or rape of a child, was removed Friday by officers with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) and transferred to the custody of the Mexican Federal Police,” according to an ICE press release.

Rodrigo Castillo Alvarez, who used the aliases Oscar Castillo and Alfonso Castillo Delgado, was first arrested in Maricopa County, Ariz. in April on money laundering and drug charges, and entered ICE custody shortly thereafter. ICE found that he was subject to an arrest warrant for allegedly raping a girl under the age of 12 in Mexico.

“On May 23, an immigration judge in Eloy, Arizona, ordered Alvarez removed from the United States,” the press release said…

Rep. Meadows: Strzok And McCabe Knew Steele Dossier Not Credible Before First Carter Page FISA – Washington Examiner
.

.
A Republican congressman said unreleased documents show that high-ranking officials at the FBI knew that the dossier put together by British ex-spy Christopher Steele “was not credible” and yet they used it anyway.

Rep. Mark Meadows told Fox News that he has seen “additional documents” which he believes show that “prior to the first FISA application, Peter Strzok, Andy McCabe, and others at the FBI knew that Christopher Steele’s dossier was not credible.”

Beginning in October 2016, a series of Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act applications and renewals were made to surveil former Trump campaign associate Carter Page. Those FISA filings made extensive use of the dossier’s claims…

Oberlin College Mass Email Criticizing Jurors Could Influence Punitive Damages Hearing In Gibson’s Bakery Case – Legal Insurrection

There are a lot of things about the way Oberlin College handled the Gibson’s Bakery dispute and lawsuit that have had me wondering who, if anyone, is in control over there.

As mentioned numerous times, “from the start of this case I have questioned the aggressive and demeaning attacks on the Gibsons as a defense strategy,” and “I’m still shaking my head at the tone-deafness of the defense in belittling this family business.”

The jury seems to have agreed, rendering a combined $11.2 million compensatory damages verdict against Oberlin College and its Dean of Students, Meredith Raimondo.

The next stage is a punitive damages hearing, since the jury found the defendants acted with intent and malice. A separate punitive damages hearing is required under the Ohio Tort Reform legislation that passed several years ago. The point is to keep some of the more inflammatory evidence that does not go to liability or compensatory damages away from the jury during the initial deliberations…

Prosecutors in Texas said Friday that a 79-year-old inmate in California may be one of the nation’s deadliest serial killers of all time, saying he has been linked to more than 60 killings in at least 14 states.

Oregon’s Leftist-Controlled House Passes Unconstitutional ‘National Popular Vote’ Legislation – Daily Wire

On April 9, the Oregon state Senate voted 17-12 to pass legislation (SB 870) to join the National Popular Vote (NPV) compact. On Wednesday, the state House of Representatives voted 37-22 in favor of the legislation.

The bill is now headed to the desk of Democratic Governor Kate Brown. Nikki Fisher, the governor’s deputy press secretary, told HuffPost: “The Governor has always believed that every vote matters and supported National Popular Vote since 2009 as Secretary of State.”

In a 2009 letter signaling her support for the NPV legislation, then-Secretary of State Brown wrote about the impact of the 2008 Democratic primary election, and how “when voters believe that their vote affects the outcome of an election, or moreover, when they feel their vote matters,” engagement increases.

The text of the legislation reads in part:

Prior to the time set by law for the meeting and voting by the presidential electors…

Why The IG Report On FISA Abuse Will Unleash Barr’s Investigation Of Spygate – Margot Cleveland

The forthcoming report from the Office of Inspector General on potential Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act abuse will finally unleash Attorney General William Barr, and when it does, watch out.

For the last month, conservative pundits have predicted the ever-imminent dropping of Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report on his investigation into the circumstances surrounding FISA surveillance of former Trump campaign advisor Carter Page.

Horowitz’s report will likely provide new and damaging details surrounding the FBI’s use of the FISA court to spy on Page. More importantly, the conclusion of Horowitz’s probe frees Barr to conduct a broader and more exacting investigation into all aspects of the Russia collusion hoax.

Barr revealed this during his interview last week with “CBS This Morning’s” Jan Crawford. In his hour-long interview, Barr made several points clear…

Alabama Legislature Bans ‘Free Speech Zones’ On College Campuses – Breitbart
.

In a victory for the First Amendment on campus, a bill that will effectively ban “free speech zones” on Alabama college campuses passed last week. According to a report by a local news outlet, the Alabama state legislature voted in favor of a bill that will ban “free speech zones” on college campuses in the state.

In recent years, many colleges have restricted the areas on campus where free expression is permitted by creating “free speech zones,” which are areas on campus where students are supposed to go when they want to engage in free speech. Breitbart News has reported extensively on the topic.

Recently, courts around the country have begun to strike down these policies as a violation of the First Amendment…

FOIA Docs: Twice-Demoted DOJ Official Bruce Ohr Received $28,000 Bonus During Work On Sketchy Dossier – Conservative Treehouse

This is a prime example of what historically sent people to the pitchforks. According to newly released FOIA documents received by Judicial Watch, twice-demoted DOJ official Bruce Ohr received pay raises and a $28,000 bonus while working on the anti-Trump operation.

Bruce Ohr was originally demoted in December 2017 stripping away his title of associate deputy attorney general based on what DOJ officials said were “undisclosed contacts” with FBI informant Christopher Steele. We later found out Bruce Ohr completely disclosed his contacts; so his first demotion was a complete CYA move by DOJ officials (ie. Rosenstein).

A month later, in January 2018, Bruce Ohr was demoted a second time, removing his title as head of the DOJ Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force. No reason was given for the second demotion. His employment remained (as it does today) but no official word as to his title.

However, it is now discovered that Bruce Ohr received performance bonuses for the same work effort he was later demoted for…
