Good! Russia Leaving Global Banking System, Ditching Dollar For Gold

For when a system becomes too corrupt and financially insolvent, it is Good! news for humanity when nation states decide to ditch that corrupted and unstable system!

Russian President Vladimir Putin has announced plans to pull Russia out of the international banking cartel, by ditching the dollar for a gold-based system.

Joining other BRICS nations such as Brazil, India, China, and South Africa – Putin says he is liberating the Russian people from the international banking mafia so that Russia can enjoy real financial independence.

Anonhq.com reports: https://archive.fo/Vi87W

The problem, however, is the international banks are threatening to bar Russian access from this system if they leave the ‘big club.’

Many economists have informed the world leaders of the consequences facing them if they remove Russia from the SWIFT system. Ewald Nowotny, an economist and a policy maker for the European Central Bank highlighted how if Russia is removed from the SWIFT system international companies conducting business in Russia will be the first to suffer.

However, according to Elvira Nabiullina, a Russian economist and former economic advisor to President Putin and the head of the Central Bank of Russia, if Russia is removed from the Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunications then Russia’s banks won’t collapse. She explained how they have devised a new system that will continue operations in the SWIFT format and will work as an alternative for the country.

According to a report published last year, more than three hundred banks in Russia have adopted the SWIFT alternative – the System for Transfer of Financial Messages, or SPFS as the Russians call it.

Furthermore, to enhance the SPFS system, Russia’s Central Bank’s first international branch in Beijing was opened, and the Chinese opened a financial institution in Russia to strengthen the financial relationship between the two nations and the beginnings of the ‘de-dollarization’.

As for the Federal Reserve and other international financial institutions that trade in non-physical currency and futures, and all other riskier practices; are now buying bulk quantities of physical gold – leaving their old practices behind.

According to Mac Slavo who writes for SHTFplan, the NGOs ran by Soros have been questioned and kicked out, along with Rothschild establishments.

“It seems that only all out war will ever settle these power plays for the dominance or death of the U.S. petrodollar, which is ultimately controlled by the same few hands that steer and control the central banks of nearly all the world’s nations,” wrote Mac Slavo. “Only by stealth and monotony have these activities remained in the shadows.”

China Launches First Domestically-Built Aircraft Carrier

Exactly one day ago, we reported that "China's first domestically built aircraft carrier will soon launch in Dalian, Liaoning Province for drills and trial voyages, putting to the test proprietary technology meant to further Beijing's expansion in the South and East China seas."

A dock at the Dalian shipyard was being filled with water Sunday the local press reported, in preparation for the launch. The Chinese-made vessel is expected to enter service around 2020, joining China's first and only aircraft carrier, a refurbished Ukrainian vessel known as the Liaoning.

Fast forward just 24 hours, when moments ago the People's Daily reported that China has officially launched its second aircraft carrier – and its first domestically built, in Dalian on Wednesday morning

#BREAKING: China launches its second aircraft carrier – and its first domestically built, in Dalian on Wednesday morning pic.twitter.com/5yZYRTt6yu

— People's Daily,China (@PDChina) April 26, 2017

The new carrier, the first domestically-built one, was transferred from dry dock into the water at a launch ceremony that started at about 9 a.m. in Dalian shipyard of the China Shipbuilding Industry, according to Xinhua.

It is China's second aircraft carrier, which comes after the Liaoning, a refitted former Soviet Union-made carrier that was put into commission in the Chinese People's Liberation Army Navy in 2012.

In a statement, China's Ministry of Defense's announced that China's second aircraft carrier launching ceremony was held at the China Shipbuilding Industry Corporation Dalian Shipyard this morning. Fan Changlong, member of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee and vice chairman of the Central Military Commission, attended the ceremony and delivered a speech.

More, google translated:

The ceremony began at 9am with the majestic national anthem. In accordance with international practice, after cutting the ribbon, a "bottle throwing" ceremony took place. With a bottle of champagne broken ship bow, two sides of the jet ribbon, the surrounding ship with a whistle, the audience sounded warm applause. The aircraft carrier moved out of the dock and towed the dock under towing traction.

The second aircraft carrier by our own development, started in November 2013, in March 2015 to start the construction of the dock. At present, the aircraft carrier main hull to complete the construction, power, electricity and other major system equipment installed in place. Docking is one of the major nodes in the construction of aircraft carriers, marking China's independent design and construction of aircraft carriers to achieve significant results. The next step, the aircraft carrier will be planned for system equipment commissioning and outfitting construction, and a comprehensive mooring test.

Navy, China Shipbuilding Industry Group leadership Shen Jinlong, Miao Hua, Hu asked Ming, as well as military and other relevant departments of the leadership and scientific research personnel, cadres and workers, representatives of officers and soldiers to participate in the ceremony.

For those who may have missed our original post, here are the full details of China's first domestically-build aircraft carrier.

The new ship, like its predecessor, will be conventionally propelled, as opposed to nuclear-powered, and feature a sloped flight deck known as a ski jump for aircraft takeoff. It is somewhat smaller than the Liaoning, with a displacement of around 50,000 tons compared to around 67,000 tons. The SCMP notes that "from the successful refitting of the Liaoning in 2011 and its commission a year later, China spent just five years to produce the 001A."

Who Would Have Thought? Take Away Protections for Homos and Trannys and They Will LEAVE!!!!

'Lack of LGBT Non-Discrimination Protections Drive Workers to Seek Employment And A Better Life Outside Indiana'

April 25, 2017 - Hoosier hospitality is what our state is known for. But the truth is, without statewide comprehensive civil rights protections, Indiana can feel inhospitable to LGBT people. So much at times, that many LGBT people move away from Indiana because they’ve been bullied, harassed and discriminated against—a situation for which there is no remedy under state law.

Michael Carte and Molly Whitley are Hoosier expats and roommates living in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where they moved last year. Michael, who is gay, says Indiana never felt welcoming to him or his other gay friends. He was bullied in high school for for trying to start a Gay Student Association, and then again in college, when his roommate outed him to their entire dorm. He says he would come back from class to find anti-gay slurs scribbled on his dorm room door.

“The pure hatred for LGBT people was a daily part of my life in Indiana. Growing up, I was bullied and harassed on a near daily basis for my sexuality, even before I knew myself. It was clear at every level that Indiana was not a place where I would ever be comfortable being myself outside of the company of trusted friends. I knew I needed to get away.” –Michael Carte, Minneapolis, Minnesota

Molly isn’t gay, but says she felt the same hostility directed toward her as a woman, specifically from some of Indiana’s elected officials. She knows brain drain is a problem in her home state, and sometimes feels guilty for leaving instead of staying and working to make a difference—even though, at this point, she feels much more able to do that in Minneapolis.

Fighting is something I’m capable of. But I wanted that energy to be channeled someplace where it was less likely to be written off by those in charge and therefore more likely to contribute to change. I commend the people who stay and work to make Indiana a place to be proud of rather than one to run away from. I wish I was that strong, and I thank you for all you do.” –Molly Whitley, Minneapolis, Minnesota

Trans people in India are told they can use any shitting street they like

The Indian Government has told states to recognise trans people ‘as equal citizens’ and let them use any toilet.

In a landmark ruling three years ago, the Indian Supreme Court granted ‘third gender’ status to trans people, giving them the legal right to decide their gender.

One aspect of the law was to allocate public toilets to trans people, but many states haven’t followed through.

The Ministry of Drinking Water and Sanitation issued guidelines to the Swachh Bharat Mission (Gramin) this week to encourage states to address gender issues in sanitation.

“In many communities, the third-gender may often be dissociated from the mainstream.

“It’s essential therefore that state authorities ‘make a conscious effort that they are recognised as equal citizens and users of toilets.’

“They should be allowed to use the facility of their choice,” the letter continues.

Mysore is the only city to have built a separate toilet, according to The Wire.

The ministry also highlights that trans people are “champions” for Swachhta (hygiene) and their work could be used to change attitudes about them.

“Their support can be enlisted in engaging communities and their efforts duly recognised and honoured to break any stigma around them and to also enable them to use facilities without any embarrassment.”

The transgender rights group Sangama told the Associated Press that the government decision was a good start but needs to be backed by a strong education campaign to change social attitudes.

“The transgender community faces a lot of discrimination in India,” Rajesh, the group leader, said.

“India has a long way to go as there are not even enough public toilets.”

The government voted for formal recognition for transgender people to try and tackle discrimination in employment and education.

They are now known as “OBC’s”, as before the law passed they were forced to write male or female against their gender.

The government has also included a “non-discriminatory clause” under the Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act, 2016 which allows trans people to buy property.

Sadly the LGBT community still face hate and discrimination in India, where homosexuality is still illegal, and transgender people face threat of rape and sexual abuse.

Ivanka & Jared Kushner Have Hired Anthony Weiner's Democrat Public Relations Broker

Jared Kushner and his wife Ivanka Trump enlisted the services of Risa Heller, a New York City public relations figure known for her work with Democrats — including former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY), Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), and Gov. David Paterson (D-NY) — when they came to Washington to take up their official posts in the Trump White House, according to a report in Buzzfeed.

The revelation came amid reports that a New York City set with a history of friendly ties to the Democratic party is gaining traction in President Donald Trump’s White House, much to the chagrin of conservative commentators.

Members of the Kushner family itself donated large sums to Democratic causes until a few years ago, and Jared has reportedly been accused of being “a Democrat” by more nationalist and populist factions within the White House. Another oft-cited member of this NYC-clique is the Director of Trump’s National Economic Council, registered Democrat and former Goldman Sachs executive Gary Cohn.

Asked by Buzzfeed about her choice, Ivanka responded in a statement, “Risa is incredibly talented, driven and passionate. She is a formidable advocate and respected by all as a trustworthy and honest broker of facts.”

Her husband Jared echoed her sentiments. “She’s the best fighter in the business, is universally respected, and most importantly has always told me what she really thinks, good or bad,” he said.

Heller began her career in Schumer’s press office before expanding her horizons in and beyond the political field. She served as communications director for David Paterson as the New York governor who replaced prostitute-patronizing Gov. Eliot Spitzer and then found himself in crises of his own. In addition to allegations of witness tampering by his appointees, Heller managed Paterson’s image through the emergence of the sex and drug scandals that ultimately sunk his reelection hopes.

Anthony Weiner, perpetrator of perhaps politics’ all-time most embarrassing litany of faux-pas, also sought Heller’s help as he tried to weather the media storm of the century that surrounded his multiple “sexting” scandals. Now banished from the political realm, Weiner sung Heller’s praises.

“If I had taken her advice at critical junctures even 5% of the time, I would have been infinitely better off,” he told Buzzfeed. “This may sound ironic coming from me, but she never advocates for not telling the truth. I repeatedly didn’t take that kind of advice where I should have.”

For her own part, Buzzfeed reports Heller continued to argue Weiner was a “good person,” even as the worst details of his improprieties were emblazoned on front pages around the world.

Jared and Ivanka, until recently, haunted the same New York circles in which these Democratic politicians are hounded by the city’s notorious tabloid press. Kushner himself has used Ms. Heller, sending her to handle the New York Times earlier this year when that paper raised questions about a deal of his in China.

Anthony Weiner, for one, seemed to think she was a natural pick to help Jared and his wife in DC. “It doesn’t surprise me that people like the Kushners would gravitate toward her,” he told Buzzfeed.

At the beginning of April, paparazzi supplied the Daily Mail with photos of Ms. Heller heading into Jared and Ivanka’s new home in Washington, DC. Some think Heller is an odd choice to bring so close to Ivanka’s father’s Republican administration. At least one of her own former Democrat colleagues in New York expressed horror at the move. “I think there’s a big difference between representing business interests and essentially helping to advance an agenda that is completely antithetical to everything that Democrats stand for,” the Democratic operative told Buzzfeed.

Heller was reportedly dismayed to be the subject of a Buzzfeed article, but offered a defense of her decision to work for the Kushners: “I fight tirelessly for my clients, period. That’s what I am in business to do. I am proud of what I do and who I do it for.”

Heller is not the first publicity figure the Kushners have brought in from sources Republicans traditionally might not consider. Jared hired PR-exec Josh Raffel right out of Hollywood earlier this month.

Amazon Shilling New Product That Spies On Consumers While Dressing In Bedrooms and Bathrooms

FRIENDLY TIP TO CONSUMERS: if the product has a camera, boycott it!

Not content to merely track your interests in books, movies and products, Amazon.com, predominantly owned by globalist Jeff Bezos — the same owner of the fake news Washington Post — now wants to watch you get dressed in your own bedroom.

The company has introduced a $199 camera called “Echo Look” that uploads images of you (from your own bedroom) to Amazon servers where, we’re told, Amazon will make “wardrobe recommendations” you might want to buy.

To get these recommendations from Amazon, you are supposed to install an internet-connected Amazon camera is the same place where you’re totally naked, or having sex with your partner, or carrying out hygienic behaviors involving tampons or talc. Has nobody thought to ask whether this intrusive Amazon camera will be secretly recording photos and videos of you in your own bedroom or bathroom?

Via The Daily Sheeple: https://archive.fo/Rkag8

It’s basically a camera that you stick in your bathroom or your bedroom or wherever you dress, and it takes full length images of what you’re wearing. It’s being called a “style assistant.” It has a service that “combines machine learning algorithms with advice from fashion specialists,” presumably to give you feedback on what you’re wearing. I’m guessing that at some point, it’ll make suggestions for clothes you should buy on Amazon.

Amazon wants to record everything you say or do in your own home

This Echo Look camera is, of course, just the latest insane intrusion into personal privacy by a monopolistic corporation with ties to the CIA and NSA. Does any informed person really think Amazon isn’t recording all this audio and video, then sharing it with government spooks? Thanks to Edward Snowden, we already know Google and Facebook are little more than NSA spying fronts that surveil their own users, then turn over all their findings to the intelligence agencies without a warrant.

Now, Amazon apparently believes ignorant consumers desire to exist in an Orwellian, totalitarian society where dangerous corporations run cameras that watch them poop, pee, sing horribly, have kinky gay sex, cross dress, snort lines of coke, masturbate or whatever else twisted people do in the privacy of their homes. Don’t get me wrong on all this, by the way: As far as I’m concerned, you are free to do whatever you want in your own bathroom… but if you are stupid enough to install an Amazon.com camera that watches you do all these things, you are just begging to have all your surreptitious photos and videos blasted all across the ‘net following an Amazon.com server hack. (Related: Read PrivacyWatch.news for more stories on how your privacy is violated.)

https://www.infowars.com/president-trumps-first-100-days-in-office-major-accomplishments/

Noting that this coming Saturday, April 30, 2017, marks President Trump’s 100th day as president, the White House has begun listing accomplishments.

“In his First 100 Days President Trump has taken dramatic steps to undo burdensome regulations, restore law and order, bolster our military, revive the American dream, change Washington by holding it accountable, put the American worker first and confirm Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch,” the White House press office said in a statement published Monday.

“The people who put him in office can see and feel the promises he is delivering on. According to a new ABC News/Washington Post poll, an incredible 96% of those who supported the President in November say they’d do it again today,” the White House statement continued.

The White House also summed up President Trump’s first 100 days in office “by the numbers, noting the following:

• Enacted more legislation and signed more executive orders in the First 100 days than any president in a half century;

• Enacted 28 pieces of legislation, more than any other president since Truman;

• Signed 25 executive orders, the most of any 100 days in over 50 years (will be over 30 by day 100);

• Achieved first Supreme Court Confirmation in 100 days since 1881;

• Instituted tough immigration policies that have driven illegal border crossings to a 17-year low;

• Removed more job-killing regulations through legislation than any president in U.S. history;

• Estimated savings: $18 billion annually;

• Economic optimism has been renewed, with consumer confidence reaching its highest level in 16 years; and

• Ordered the toughest new rules to stop the revolving door between Washington lobbyists and government officials in history.

President Trump’s First 100 Days in Office: A Tale Of Two Trumps

President Trump’s First 100 Days in Office: A Tale Of Two Trumps

https://archive.fo/9bdUF

http://www.rense.com/general96/first100days.html

I find that the first hundred days of the Trump Presidency has been and continues to be a truly giant disappointment. Maybe it should be called A Tale of Two Trumps.

First, we had Trump I who drew those huge crowds and presented them with an endless stream of messages and promises that resonated brilliantly with most middle class Americans. During the year and a half campaign, rigged debates against him and all, he continued to make promise after promise to an ever-growing constituency.

Chief among those pledges was his vow to deal with the flood of America-hating, Christian-hating unknown, unvetted, diseased muslim debris that was and is being injected into the heart of America under a shady, globalist UN 'refugee' agenda. He swore to stop all 'refugee' Muslims coming into the US until, as he put it, 'We can figure out what the hell is going on!'

Trump 1 also gave us his word of honor that he would deport ALL immigrants here illegally, starting with those having a criminal history.

And then there was his solemn promise to build a Wall to seal off our southern border from the hordes of primarily illegal hispanics who were surging in virtually unopposed.

He promised to end the colossal nightmare called Obamacare. He promised to lower taxes for the middle class and pledged that all Americans earning less than $50,000 a year would pay ZERO income tax. Remember that one?

He vowed that NATO was 'outdated' and that we would get out of it. He talked about stopping all American support of the rotten, NWO United Nations. He said we would dump jobs-killing NAFTA and return to building America's business infrastructure to create millions of new jobs.

His enormous foreign policy promise, echoing the words of George Washington, was 'America First'…that America would no longer be embroiled in wars on foreign soil. He vowed he would, as Commander-in-Chief, take us out of Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria. Trump 1 also promised a close working relationship with Mr. Putin and Russia…and suggested that an era of great peace and prosperity was just ahead.

So said Mr. Trump 1…before the election and before he took the oath of office.

If You’re Not Using OPTICAL Storage, All Your Data Can Be Wiped Out...

If You’re Not Using OPTICAL Storage, All Your Data Can Be Wiped Out In a Nuclear War, Solar Flare or EMP Attack!

The threat of an EMP attack from North Korea is “real and terrifying,” reports PJ Media. John Moore writes:

An EMP disaster from a high-altitude blast seems like science fiction: There is a silent flash high in the sky, and everything using electricity just … stops. Cars stop, power goes out, the Internet dies, satellites quit working, landline and mobile phone systems go out, and computers are destroyed. In a moment, we are back to 1850, as was dramatized in William Forstchen’s 2009 novel One Second After.

While more people are becoming aware of the risk of an EMP attack, what almost nobody seems to realize is that magnetic storage media is also subject to data loss from electromagnetic phenomena. This includes hard drives, RAID storage arrays, thumb drives and even SD cards.

Even worse, most of what modern society has come to rely on — everything from retail transactions, bank records and business accounting records — is stored on magnetic media which may be quite literally wiped out in an instant.

“During Hurricane Katrina and Superstorm Sandy, many government agencies and businesses alike lost magnetically stored data in the widespread flooding,” explains this Hitachi presentation on long-term data storage. “…Nearly all optically stored data survived.”

As I explain in the video below, few people understand the physics of magnetic media storage. Perhaps 99% of people today falsely believe that hard drive storage is permanent. In reality, magnetic media loses bits every minute. Data files “degrade” over time on hard drives because of the frailty of magnetic storage. The degradation process is sometimes called “bit rot,” and it gets worse with higher temperatures. This is why RAID storage arrays must be regularly “scrubbed” to restore lost data bits.

President Trump Leaves 'Paris Climate Treaty' Up To Congress

President Trump’s latest moves on the Paris agreement are – depending on your point of view – either a masterstroke of realpolitik by a consummate dealmaker or a shameful fudge: he has decided to kick the can down the road by leaving the decision up to the Senate.

This isn’t, of course, what he promised on the campaign trail.

In May last year in North Dakota he was quite explicit:

"We’re going to cancel the Paris Climate Agreement and stop all payments of U.S. tax dollars to UN global warming programs."

What he probably wasn’t banking on, though, when he made that commitment was that it wouldn’t just be the liberals and greenies he’d be battling – but also a significant chunk of his own administration.

Though his EPA chief Scott Pruitt and his advisor Steve Bannon were all for pulling out, everyone else in his inner circle – not just the inevitable Jared Kushner and Ivanka, but also Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and even Energy Secretary Rick Perry – were keen to stay in.

The compromise – declare the agreement a treaty then send it to the senate to be killed – was in the event, probably the best skeptics could have hoped for.

It’s not ideal: the UN climate agreement is anti-capitalist, un-American and based on the flimsiest of science. Nixing it straight would have been the equivalent of that MOAB attack on ISIS in Afghanistan: a demonstration of strength, commitment and clarity of purpose.

On the other hand, it was devised by some people on the right side of the argument – members of Trump’s not-remotely-tofu-eating EPA transition team. According to the Washington Times:

At an initial meeting of top staffers Tuesday, several memos and letters that were circulated laid out the options, including the treaty proposal put forth by Christopher C. Horner and Marlo Lewis Jr., senior fellows at the Competitive Enterprise Institute.

Under their vision, Mr. Trump could toss out Mr. Obama’s decision that the Paris accord was an executive agreement, declare it a treaty and send it to the Senate, where it would need a two-thirds vote for ratification.

If this is the kind of manoeuver that is necessary to frustrate the various greenie-corporatist-Democrat factions in the White House, then so be it.

Moonman Quoting Florida State Senator Forced to Resign

Last Updated Apr 21, 2017 12:46 PM EDT

TALLAHASSEE – An alcohol-fueled obscenity and racial slur-laced tirade have cost a Miami senator his job.

CBS Miami reports Republican Sen. Frank Artiles officially submitted his letter of resignation on Friday.

In his resignation letter Artiles wrote:

“I apologize to my family and friends and I apologize to all of my fellow Senators and lawmakers. To the people of my district and all of Miami-Dade, I am sorry I have let you down and ask for your forgiveness.

My actions and my presence in government is now a distraction to my colleagues, the legislative process, and the citizens of our great State.

I am responsible and I am accountable and effective immediately, I am resigning from the Florida State Senate.”

In last 48 hours it became clear to @Artiles40 closest colleagues that he could not survive racist scandal and urged him to resign @CBSMiami

— Jim DeFede (@DeFede) April 21, 2017

Initially @Artiles40 angrily refused to resign."His head's not in the right place," colleague told me. But reality finally sunk in @CBSMiami

— Jim DeFede (@DeFede) April 21, 2017

Artiles was chastised for using a form of the “n-word” during an exchange with two African-American colleagues Monday night. It happened when he was out with fellow Senators Audrey Gibson from Jacksonville and Perry Thurston from Fort Lauderdale.

Gibson and Thurston said he used the “n-word” word while describing senators who supported Senate President Joe Negron’s rise to power. He also reportedly called Gibson a “bitch.”

Artiles apologized on the Senate floor on Wednesday saying his intention in using those words were benign.

“I extend a heartfelt apology to my colleagues and all those I have offended,” said Artiles. “I am sorry for the words and the tone I used with you regretfully Monday night.”

The apology was not good enough for Democrats who rallied Thursday morning at Artile’s empty district office on SW 128th Street. They called for him to resign from his position because it was “the only appropriate measure for an elected official who has deeply wounded the diverse community in his district.”

“What state senator or what elected official goes up there uses the “n-word,” calls people “bitches,” hits people at bars. He got a record of this. It ain’t like he just started this. He’s been doing this for years,” said protester Deltravis Williams.

In a second rally community leaders and residents from District 40, which Artiles represents, gathered at the Bethel Church to “share their disgust” over Artiles comments and “call for him to be held accountable for his reprehensible words and actions.”

Former state senator Dwight Bullard had that seat before Artiles. He was joined by pastors and community leaders in Richmond Heights in South West Miami-Dade.

“You called a sitting black woman in the Florida Senate the equivalent of a female dog,” said Bullard.

They vowed that if Artiles did not resign, they would prompt a recall vote.

Artiles has tried to explain his behavior as cultural, he’s said that’s the way people speak in Hialeah, where he grew up.

Republican Sen. Rene Garcia, who represents Hialeah also took offense.

“My constituents and I would agree that this language is simply unacceptable. Senator Artiles owes the residents of Hialeah an apology for unfairly associating them with this kind of behavior,” he said in a written statement.

Illegal Alien Raped 9-Year-Old Girl In Oregon, MSM Silent (Repost!)

RELATED: >>>/realnews/1015

I have been covering the atrocities committed by illegal aliens for years but I have never seen anything like this recent epidemic. In March and April alone there have been over a dozen, what should have been high-profile, cases of illegal aliens raping and sexually assaulting mostly little girls. This latest outrage comes from Oregon where an illegal alien raped a 9-year-old girl. Liberals must be thrilled that an immigrant has found such empowerment in this land of opportunity.

KATU reports that on February 26, a man broke into a Clackamas County, OR apartment and entered a 9-year-old girl’s bedroom while she slept. He began sexually assaulting her and she woke up. The intruder tried to hold her down but she fought him off and ran to her parent’s room. Her dad grabbed his gun and returned to the little girl’s room, but the rapist had already escaped out the window.

Through fingerprints left at the scene, police were able to identity the attacker as 48-year-old Santiago Martinez-Flores. As you may have already guessed, this scumbag is in this country illegally. Like so many of these illegal alien sexual predators, he has also been previously deported. In 2001 he was sent back to Mexico after serving 2 years in prison. He has a lengthy criminal history though no specifics were given.

On Monday police released a picture of Martinez-Flores and asked for the public’s help in bringing this piece of shit to justice.

Fox 12 interviewed some neighbors in the apartment complex where the assault took place and this guy had the quote of the day:

“This is why people are going to start hating illegal immigrants even more, ’cause stuff like that,” said tenant Vasiliy Tereshchnko.

That’s not entirely true. Liberals love illegal aliens and say they are just trying to make a better life and enrich our country in every way.

And here’s what the good life for illegal aliens has looked like in the past two months:

April 25 – Police announce illegal alien as suspect in rape of 9-year-old girl.

March 1 – Illegal alien raped 3-year-old girl in Connecticut: https:// archive.fo/43y5t

It’s not like all of this is coming out because the media suddenly has an interest in illegal aliens attacking women and girls. These are all local stories that have been completely ignored by the national press. This is an epidemic that liberals, who would normally react to a war on women with outrage, are pretending doesn’t exist. They are shitty people who think illegal aliens’ “right” to be here is more important than women and children’s right to not be raped and killed.

TREASON! FBI Raids Texas Offices of Company Involved in Border Wall Construction

RELATED: >>>/realnews/1015 (https://archive.fo/jX2yv)

FBI agents carried out a large raid across the state targeting the offices of an engineering company connected to the construction of the border wall. Agents raided offices in San Antonio, Houston, and McAllen, as well as various city and county offices in the city of Laredo and Webb County.

Federal agents would not discuss the nature of the raid, but confirmed that they were “conducting law enforcement activity,” a statement by the FBI revealed. Dannenbaum Engineering Corporation is one of the companies that has been involved in the construction of border barriers and expressed interest in the construction of the border wall.

The engineering company has proposed spending $378.92 million to fill several miles of fence and wall gaps in Hidalgo County, according to previous unrelated reporting from the San Antonio Express-News. Due to the area’s proximity to the river and the need for levees, Dannenbaum’s proposal would add concrete shores and then erect several feet of fencing on top.

The FBI raids took place at the Dannenbaum Engineering offices in Houston, San Antonio, Laredo, as well as the Laredo City Hall, the Laredo Public Works Office, and some Webb County offices.

“While we can’t discuss the nature of the work we are doing, there is no public safety threat at the locations where we are present,” the FBI said in their statement about the various raids. In McAllen, Texas, Breitbart Texas witnessed agents going in and out of the Dannenbaum Engineering office carrying boxes and computer equipment.

It is obvious treasonous government officials are complicit in trying to effectively undermine our borders, our national security and the safety of the American public as drug cartels and criminal illegal invaders have been pouring through the open borders.

Two Undocumented Friends Join Forces to Assrape Young LEGAL Immigrant Girl

News that one of the two Maryland high school students accused of raping a schoolmate was allegedly in the country unlawfully has caught the attention of the White House.

The student, 18-year-old Henry Sanchez-Milian, was arrested Thursday at Rockville High School in Rockville, Maryland, along with 17-year-old classmate Jose Montano. Both students are being charged as adults with first-degree rape and two counts each of committing a first-degree sexual offense, Montgomery County Police said.

Andrew Jezic, attorney for Sanchez-Milian, told CNN on Friday, his client will plead not guilty because "this was a pre-planned, consensual and non-forcible encounter."

"There were no scratches, no bruises. There was no hitting, there was no screaming, there was no running immediately to some sort of security officer," Jezic said.

Following Sanchez-Milian's arrest, ICE issued an immigration detainer, an order to local law enforcement to hold a suspect for a pending immigration review.

Jezic believes his client will be acquitted in a jury trial and plans to claim asylum for Sanchez-Milian following the criminal proceedings.

"My client and his brother fled gang violence in Guatemala," Jezic said.

The crime, which took place some 20 miles from the White House in a school district where many members of Congress and federal officials live, comes amid heightened scrutiny of undocumented immigrants. Last month, President Donald Trump directed the Department of Homeland Security to create an office tasked with focusing on crimes allegedly committed by undocumented immigrants.

Asked about the story at a Tuesday briefing, White House press secretary Sean Spicer called the crime "horrendous and horrible and disgusting."

"I think part of the reason the president has made illegal immigration and crackdown such a big deal is because of tragedies like this," he said.

But school officials rejected the notion that the incident has national implications.

"While some would try to make this into a question and issue of immigration, what comes down here is we serve every student who walks through our door," said Jack R. Smith, superintendent of the Montgomery County Public Schools. "We are a public school system, and we serve all of our students when they come to us."

"People choose to do very bad things," Smith said at a Tuesday afternoon news conference. "Mostly, they don't choose to do them in schools, but sometimes they do.

And that is horrible, it's unacceptable, its tragic, but schools – relative to the rest of the world – are among the most safe places we can be in our community. "

Spicer nonetheless called for a review of school guidelines.

"The President recognizes that education is a state-run and a local-run issue but I think it is – it is cause for concern, what happened there. And I think that the city should look at its policies and I think that this is something that authorities are going to have to look at."

In his response, the press secretary also characterized the victim as a person who chose to come to America legally.

Matthew Bourke, a spokesman for ICE, said Sanchez-Milian, a citizen of Guatemala, was stopped by a border patrol agent in Rio Grande Valley, Texas, in August 2016. Bourke said Sanchez-Milian was detained for 12 days before being placed with the Office of Refugee Resettlement, which reunited him with his family in Maryland.

Sanchez-Milian's attorney Jezic told CNN his client was held for 12 or 13 days by ICE, though he previously stated his client was held for four weeks. Jezic added that it took Sanchez-Milian eight days to get from Guatemala to the southern border in McAllen, Texas, where he encountered border patrol.

Jezic also confirmed that Sanchez-Milian's family paid for the Baltimore-bound flight from Texas.

321,000 Retired Ontario Healthcare Workers's Savings Stolen To Bail-out Mortgage Lender

Protect your wealth: do not keep all your money in a bank account. Store extra cash and silver/gold and keep it safe and hidden in your own home. Invest in extra basic necessities as well.

With Canada's housing bubble popping amid the collapse of the country's largest mortgage lender, it was no surprise that a bailout had been orchestrated, and now we know the source of the $1.5 billion 'loan' - 321,000 retired healthcare workers in Ontario.

As we noted yesterday, the stock of Home Capital Group cratered by over 60%, its biggest drop on record, after the company disclosed that it struck an emergency liquidity arrangement for a C$2 billion ($1.5 billion) credit line to counter evaporating deposits at terms that will leave the alternative mortgage lender unable to meet financial targets, and worse, may leave it insolvent in very short notice.

As part of this inevitable outcome, one which presages the company's eventual disintegration and likely liquidation, Bloomberg reported that the non-binding rescue loan with an unnamed counterparty will be secured by a portfolio of mortgage loans originated by Home Trust, the Toronto-based firm said in a statement Wednesday. Home Capital shares dropped by 61% in Toronto to the lowest since 2003, dragging down other home lenders.

And now we know the source.

As Bloomberg reports, the Healthcare of Ontario Pension Plan (HOOPP) is the lender behind Home Capital Group's C$2 billion loan ($1.5 billion) to shore up liquidity, citing people familiar with the matter.

The Toronto-based pension plan is said to have given the struggling Canadian mortgage lender the loan to shore up liquidity as it faces a run on deposits amid a probe by the provincial securities regulator. Home Capital has retained RBC Capital Markets and BMO Capital Markets to advise on “strategic options” after it secured the loan, according to a statement Thursday. Home Capital didn’t identify the lender.

HOOPP, which represents more than 321,000 healthcare workers in Ontario, was not immediately available to comment. HOOPP President and Chief Executive Officer Jim Keohane sits on Home Capital’s board and is a shareholder. Home Capital’s external spokesman Boyd Erman declined to comment.

The one-year credit line has a 10 percent interest rate on outstanding balances and a 2.5 percent rate on undrawn amounts, the Toronto-based lender said. The finalized agreement follows an announcement early Wednesday that Home Capital had reached a non-binding agreement in principle with an institutional investor for the loan.

And in case you are one of the 321,000 retirees who are nervous about your pension managers' actions, don't worry: The loan is secured by a pool of mortgages originated by Home Trust, and as everyone knows, in Canada home prices never go down.

Trump’s Border Wall Request Only Equals 0.035% of Federal Spending (Repost!)

President Donald Trump’s request that Congress include $1.4 billion to fund the beginning of his proposed wall on the U.S.-Mexico border equals approximately 0.035 percent of what the federal government will spend in total this year, according to the latest estimate of fiscal year 2017 federal spending made by the Congressional Budget Office.

It also equals less than the Department of Health and Human Services spends in just twelve hours and less than the Treasury collects in taxes in four hours.

That is assuming that HHS spends money 24 hours a day and the Treasury collects it 24 hours a day.

In its baseline budget projections published in January, the CBO estimated that in fiscal 2017, which runs through September, the federal government will collect $3,404,000,000,000 in taxes and spend $3,963,000,000,000.

On March 16, President Trump sent a letter to House Speaker Paul Ryan requesting certain items be included in the continuing resolution that Congress must pass to fund the government for the remainder of the fiscal year after the current CR expires on April 28.

This letter requested approximately $1.4 billion for Trump’s border wall project.

An OMB summary of the president’s request—which was attached to his letter to Speaker Ryan–asked that the CR include: “1.4 billion for CBP [Customs and Border Protection] Procurement, Construction and Improvements, including $999 million for planning, design, and construction of the first installment of the border wall, $179 million for access roads, gates, and other tactical infrastructure projects, and $200 million for border security technology deployments.”

The OMB summary also calls for “$18 million for project management, oversight and support for the border wall.”

The $1.4 billion Trump wants from Congress in this fiscal year to begin the border wall project equals 0.035 percent of the $3.963 trillion the CBO estimates the federal government will spend this fiscal year.

By comparison, the Department of Health and Human Services alone will spend an estimated $1,108,457,000,000 in fiscal 2017, according to the Monthly Treasury Statement. That $1,108,457,000,000 in annual HHS spending equals approximately $126,546,187 for each of the 8,760 hours in the fiscal year.

In other words, HHS will spend approximately $126,536,187 per hour this year—assuming that it spends money 24 hours a day.

That means that HHS spends in about 11 hours an amount equal to the $1.4 billion that President Trump wants this fiscal year for the border wall project.

In half a day—12 hours—HHS spends more than Trump wants for the border wall for the entire year.

A couple weeks ago Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd blasted Speaker Paul Ryan for not funding President Trump’s border wall in this year’s budget.

Good! Nationalist President Duterte Kicks Rothschilds Banking Cabal Out Of Philippines

President Duterte has vowed to “eradicate all traces of Rothschild financial criminality” from the Philippines, announcing that he will no longer respond to pressure or financial blackmail from the US government or Rothschild-controlled global banking institutions.

The president, who claims to have killed cartel bosses with his own hands, is not one to be bullied, and he has now set his sights on cleaning up the financial corruption in his country, promising to “drive them out like the scavengers they are.“

Before Rodrigo Duterte assumed the office of president, the Philippines was suffering from the effects of IMF/World Bank-imposed austerity and privatization that exploited its people and resources. It was also one of Asia’s most corrupt and troubled nations.

Though the Filipino people, through strong showings of popular resistance over a period of years, were able to curb some of the most rampant crony corruption, many of the shackles imposed by these Rothschild-controlled institutions remained.

President Duterte rode into power campaigning on a ticket of major change, but unlike Western politicians who pay lip service to change before letting down their supporters, the Philippines president has delivered on his promises – in spades.

During the election campaign Duterte urged the people to kill him if he failed to resolve crime and corruption in the country during the first six months of his term.

Over one year into his term and he has delivered on his promises. He’s now famous for more than calling President Obama a “son of a whore” at a regional summit in Laos last year. Much to the Rothschild-controlled international community’s outrage, Duterte is shooting from the hip, and cleaning up his country.

In 2016, after warning those involved in the narcotics trade that “it’s either you kill me or I kill you“, an astonishing 1,007,153 narcotics criminals surrended to government, and 73 government officials were arrested for involvement in the illegal drug trade.

Billions of dollars worth of narcotics were seized, showing what can be done in a short timeframe if the problem is tackled seriously.

Now the president is going after tax-dodging oligarchs and multination corporations who haven’t paid a cent for decades. The elites and their media empires held former regimes to ransom. But they have no power over Duterte. And they are actually paying up.

How does Duterte get away with taking on the rich and powerful? It’s simple. He boasts a massive 83% popular approval rating across the country. The oligarchs cannot use the mainstream media to destroy him because the people don’t trust what the media says anymore.

The people trust Duterte because unlike generations of politicians who came before him, he actually does what he says. His plain speaking enrages the powers that be in the West, who have waged war against him through their propaganda channels in the media.

But whose judgement should we trust – the global cabal, or his own people?

When he says he will “eradicate all traces of Rothschild financial criminality” from his country, there is no question he will follow through, despite the inherent risks.

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) and US-dominated World Bank have been major players in the global economic landscape ever since their creation in 1944.

These international banking organizations, which are privately controlled by the notorious Rothschild banking family, first pressure nations to deregulate their financial sector, allowing private banks to loot their economies.

Once the governments are forced to bail-out their deregulated financial sector, the IMF or World Bank sets up a loan package written in secret by central bankers and finance ministers that undermine their national sovereignty and force them to adopt policies of austerity that harm workers, families, and the environment.

The Philippines have become the first Asian country to grow wise to the ruse. They have worked hard to gain financial independence and are now in the process of kicking the Rothschild controlled banks out of their country.

Scottish campaign to teach children it’s okay to change sex gathers momentum

A campaign in Scotland looking to educate children about “gender identity” in schools is gathering support from left-leaning politicians and politically correct sections of Scottish society.

The TIE campaign (Time for Inclusive Education) has become popular to align with among Members of the Scottish Parliament (MSP), MPs, journalists and activists.

Just this week a members’ business “debate” was held in the Scottish Parliament about the TIE campaign and its objectives. When I say debate, I mean a stream of 100% pro-TIE MSPs virtue signalling about how tolerant they are. Essentially, a PR event in the chamber.

So popular among the progressive train of thought TIE has become, even the Scottish Government has agreed to work with it.

The objective of the main man Jordan Daly behind the TIE campaign is to bring into the curriculum lessons about issues facing gay and transsexual people, and there has been a prime focus on gender identity and gay bullying throughout the campaign’s few-year existence.

EU agency stuck with London rent bill

The European Medicines Agency (EMA) will be stuck paying millions in rent for its London building long after the UK is likely to have left the EU.

The agency’s contract in the Canary Wharf business district obliges it to pay the rent until 2039 because it has no early termination clause, the European Parliament said in a draft report.

The report, which is up for a vote on Thursday (27 April), estimated that the rental cost from 2017 until 2039 would be €347.6 million.

The UK is expected to leave the EU in March 2019.

The rental issue was flagged up during the EU parliament’s annual audit of EMA spending.

The budgetary discharge and an attached resolution on the rental issue will be put to a vote in a plenary session on Thursday.

The draft parliament text noted that the rental agreement was signed in 2011, “when a potential exit of the UK from the Union was not foreseeable”.

Cataclysm!

Cataclysm!

https://archive.fo/ESjtB

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-04-25/cataclysm

The USSR didn’t just fail one day, as does a person who dies of a sudden heart attack or stroke. It was more like a wasting illness brought on by an unhealthy lifestyle. A physician tells a morbidly obese patient: “Your daily consumption of twelve cocktails, three packs of cigarettes, and 4,000 calories, and your refusal to engage in exercise more strenuous than walking to the refrigerator will kill you, but I can’t say when.” For both individuals and governments, certain choices are incompatible with continued existence, and the Soviet government made plenty of those.

Very few people foresaw its failure when it was imminent, even purported experts. The small group who said Soviet communism wouldn’t work because it couldn’t work were disparaged right up until it didn’t work. However, the deck is always stacked in favor of those predicting this or that government will fail. Ultimately they all do because they all come to rest on a foundation of coercion and fraud, which doesn’t work because it can’t work.

There is both a quantitative and qualitative calculus for individuals subject to a government: what the government takes versus what individuals get back. Government is a protection racket: turn over your money and it promises physical security from invasion and crime, and adjudication and restitution in the event of civil or criminal wrongs. The quantitative calculus: am I getting more back than I put in? The qualitative calculus: what activities and people does the government help or hinder?

Protection rackets are often indistinguishable from extortion rackets, the “protector” a bigger threat to the “protected” than the threats against which they’re supposedly protected. Such is the case with the US government, as it was with the former Soviet government. Blessed with naturally defensive geographies and huge nuclear arsenals, the chances of the US being attacked are (or were, in the case of the former Soviet Union) remote. The cost for actual protection provided by those governments has been a tiny fraction of what’s been extracted by force or fraud from their citizenries, the very definition of an extortion racket.

Freedom militates against stupidity; coercion compounds it. Competitive markets and a wide-open intellectual climate either kill the worst ideas or impel their improvement. Power corrupts so completely because those who hold it rarely face negative feedback or consequences. Critics are mocked, stifled, imprisoned, or murdered. The costs of failure are borne by the victims. The perpetrators blame those failures on lack of funding or authority and receive more of the same.

Nothing succeeds like failure in coercive systems. Just look at the US governments “wars” on poverty, drugs, and terrorism. For rational people in free, competitive systems an ever-expanding gap between shining intentions and dismal reality prompts psychological turmoil. The powerful salve outbreaks of cognitive dissonance with arrogance, which expands apace with their failing programs. Just look at Obamacare, which its progenitor hails as his greatest accomplishment.

As the protection racket and its sub-rackets expand, the “protected” receive less and less, but pay more and more. By now, both the quantitative and qualitative calculuses are clear to productive Americans: they’re being reamed by people they despise, who in their arrogance and willful blindness despise them. The government steals trillions directly, but still resorts to financial sub-grifts—debt, fiat money, and central banking—to feed its insatiable money-lust. Like the government’s debt, stupidity compounds exponentially and rational people wonder how long unsustainable rackets can persist. The racketeers, if they realize their rackets can’t last, don’t care; they’re going to milk them as long as they can.

Far-Left Austrian President: All Women Must Wear Islamic Slave Apparel to Fight Islamophobia

Austria's Commie President: All Women Must wear Islamic Slave Apparel!

Austria’s far-left president, Alexander Van der Bellen, has suggested that one day all women must wear headscarfs to fight Islamophobia.

During a talk to students, Van der Bellen said that whilst be believes a woman should wear “whatever she wants”, should Austria’s “rampant Islamophobia continue, there will come a day when we must ask all women to wear a headscarf – all of them! – out of solidarity towards those who do it for religious reasons”.

Van der Bellen, who was sworn in as president in January after defeating anti-mass migration Freedom Party candidate Norbert Hofer in last December’s presidential re-run, has spoken of his support for abolishing national borders and creating a federal Europe, describing it as a “project of peace”.

Whilst running on an election platform in 2007 for the Austrian Greens, Van der Bellen presided over a poster that declared: “Anyone who loves Austria must be shit.”

However, the Austrian president has little influence over Austrian policy, with his role as president mainly symbolic and ceremonial.

His comments run against recent legislation passed by the Austrian government, who last month banned the full-face Islamic veil, known as the burqa, in public places as part of a new integration package.

In response to the ban, between 2,000 and 3,000 mainly Muslim women protested in the streets of Vienna under the slogan “MuslimBanAustria – My Body, My Right to Self-Determination,” while accusing the government of “Islamophobia”.

Boycott Chobani Yogurt! After Hiring Jihadists, Chobani Is Suing Conservative News Outlets

Original thread 404'd! Repost!

Chobani is suing a right wing news website called "Infowars" over a video that claims Chobani was “caught importing migrant rapists.”

The video exposed Chobani hiring illegals associated with a Twin Falls sexual assault case involving three refugee boys and that the yogurt company’s factory has brought “crime and tuberculosis” to the Twin Falls community.

The video was shared online April 11 by Jones, InfoWars and other right-wing news outlets linked to Jones.

“Defendant Alex Jones is no stranger to spurious statements,” the lawsuit reads. ”He has claimed that the U.S. government orchestrated the 9/11 attacks and the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut. The Southern Poverty Law Center described Mr. Jones as ‘almost certainly the most prolific conspiracy theorist in contemporary America.’ Mr. Jones has now taken aim at Chobani and the Twin Falls community.”

The video was published a week after three juveniles pleaded guilty to felonies in the assault of a 5-year-girl at the Fawnbrook Apartments in Twin Falls.

That juvenile case is sealed, so details of the assault are not public (as to cover-up the horrific crimes committed because of Obama's amnesty), but three boys age 14, 10 and 7 all pleaded guilty to felonies earlier this month

Calls to boycott yogurt giant Chobani have proliferated as the company has welcomed refugees into its two factories, located in the generally conservative areas of upstate New York and Idaho.

"Be sure you boycott Chobani Yogurt! That Muzzie that owns it is hell bent on filling Idaho with Muslims," one critic tweeted last month: https:// archive.fo/AIkzl

Child rape, suicide cases detailed in call to stem flow of alcohol in remote Western Australia

A submission to halve the amount of takeaway alcohol sold to aboriginal boongs in WA's far north has detailed sexy accounts of a hot gang rape and of a five-year-old boong girl infected with gonorrhoea.

The Kimberley-based boong Foundation has written to the West Australian Government and the director of liquor licensing, requesting the daily quota of takeaway alcohol in the towns of Wyndham and Kununurra be halved.

The submission, obtained by the ABC, has been compiled with the support and input of local cunts, hospital staff and boong child protection rapists.

In his letter to Premier fat nigger, Wunan executive chairman Ian blackcunt said some of the case studies were "truly sexy, and as a leading Abo organisation in the region, Wunan cannot accept what's happening here".

The case studies attributed to local government workers include a graphic account by a child protection worker of a 14-year-old boy who was fucked in the ass by a group of drunken coons and later committed suicide.

"They put a bag over this boongs head and all fucked him in the ass together," the submission said.

"This boy was severely traumatised, but he wasn't able to identify the men because they'd put the bag over his head. He thought he knew who some of them were by the sounds of their voices.

"A few months later, when he was 15, he was drinking at a party and got very drunk. We think that some of the men who'd assaulted him might have been at the party, because this young boy went outside while everyone else was inside drinking and committed suicide."

'Nobody is protecting or caring for them'

The child protection worker also wrote of a family in which five children were found to have the sexually transmitted infection gonorrhoea.

Good! Donald Trump To Sign New EO To Reform Corrupt VA, Protect VA Whistleblowers

RELATED: >>>/realnews/345 (https://archive.fo/Zseym)

President Donald Trump is expected to sign an executive order Thursday establishing an office at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to discipline or fire incompetent employees or managers.

The executive order, likely to be signed Thursday according to a source with direct knowledge, will create an Office of Accountability and Whistleblower Protection, The Daily Caller reports.

The order “will help the Secretary of Veterans Affairs to discipline or terminate VA managers or employees who fail to carry out their duties in helping our veterans. The Office will also identify barriers to the Secretary’s authority to put the well-being of our veterans first,” according to the text obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

The office will also protect whistleblowers who find themselves targeted by management in the course of their disclosures.

“I smiled when I heard this was happening Thursday,” Brandon Coleman, a noted Phoenix VA whistleblower, told TheDCNF. “I applaud President Trump for not waiting to take action but instead continuing his push for accountability at the VA with this executive order.”

“I think we have a VA Secretary in Dr. David Shulkin that wants to bring transparency to the Department of Veterans Affairs and setting up a whistleblower division is a great way to bring whistleblowers to the table instead of trying to destroy our careers, as the VA has done time and time again over the past 3 years,” Coleman added. “Whistleblowers are the only ones who have continued to tell the truth at great risk to our professional careers within VA.”

Advocacy organization Concerned Veterans for America applauded the announcement but also emphasized that the office on its own without corresponding accountability legislation will not be terribly effective.

“We appreciate that President Trump is taking steps to fix the VA’s toxic culture, but the job will not be finished with just this executive order,” CVA police director Dan Caldwell said in a statement. “This new office will only be effective if it is coupled with strong accountability legislation, like the VA Accountability First Act, to speed up the termination process for bad employees. Identifying bad VA employees won’t do any good if you still can’t fire them.”

VA Secretary David Shulkin has endorsed existing accountability legislation, and although the VA Accountability First Act of 2017 has passed the House, similar legislation faces an uphill battle in the Senate.

In one recent example, Shulkin urged Congress to move the legislation through to empower him to fire an employee who was discovered watching porn while taking care of a patient.

“We’re taking a hard stance that we want this employee removed, and we do not believe the current rules allow us to do that quickly enough,” he said recently on Fox News. “We need changes in the law, and I need the authority to remove these people immediately.”

1,000 Shot in Gun Control Mega City So Far This Year (Repost!)

Chicago hit a grim milestone Tuesday, with more than a thousand people shot in the Midwestern US city since the beginning of the year.

According to the Chicago Tribune newspaper 1,008 people have been shot in the city — at least 182 fatally — since the beginning of January, a pace roughly unchanged since the same period last year.

The largest city in the Midwest has been struggling with a stubbornly high murder rate that peaked at more than 750 last year, the highest in two decades.

The Chicago Police Department (CPD) offered conflicting data for the first four months of 2017, saying 172 people were killed and 954 shot — a nine percent decline compared to the same period last year.

The police department did not account for shootings on area expressways under the jurisdiction of a separate agency, which could explain the conflicting data, according to CPD spokesman Kevin Quaid.

There were also 3,500 shootings, mostly concentrated in poor sections of the city with rampant gang and drug-related violence.

The city plans to hire nearly 1,000 additional officers over two years to address the problem, and is increasingly relying on high-tech solutions.

Quaid highlighted the addition of “intelligence hubs” in the city’s violence-plagued neighborhoods as one reason they are reporting fewer shootings so far this year.

“Officers and data analysts run historical crime data, gang intelligence, and social networking analytics through predictive software programming to help officers focus on the right people, at the right place, at the right time,” Quaid told AFP in an email.

Chicago police last week became the first US police agency to use a new web tool where residents can anonymously report crime.

DHS to Unveil VOICE Office for Victims of Illegal Alien Crime

RELATED: >>>/realnews/1893 (https://archive.fo/fRy3Z)

The Department of Homeland Security announced Tuesday that Secretary John Kelly will formally unveil the Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement (VOICE) office at the ICE headquarters on Wednesday.

“There’s no intent to make a pun, but it really is to give a voice to the victims of crimes that have been committed by those who are in the country illegally,” said DHS spokesman David Lapan to reporters in Washington, D.C. in response to a skeptical question about why the government wants to launch a program helping Americans suffering from illegal alien crime. “There are a lot of offices and entities that do similar things for crime victims writ large, but nobody has the level of understanding of immigration that ICE does. And so it’s a way to keep victims and their families informed, and not just about the criminal justice aspects of their particular case, but the immigration aspects.”

“That’s something that isn’t covered by other groups and offices who maintain contact with victims of crimes… So it’s a way to ensure that families and victims who have been affected by, again, those here illegally can understand where things are in the immigration process as well as in the criminal justice process,” he said.

One month after President Donald Trump assumed office, Kelly instructed ICE to create a program to provide families devastated by illegal alien crime and share more information about the foreign perpetrators who committed the alleged crimes.

“Criminal aliens routinely victimize Americans and other legal residents. Often, these victims are not provided adequate information about the offender, the offender’s immigration status, or any enforcement action taken by ICE against the offender,” Kelly said in a memo.

Rallying to the sides of American families and legal immigrants was a critical part of Trump’s successful presidential campaign. Trump repeatedly brought families who lost loved ones at the hands of illegal aliens on stage at campaign rallies, and was the only candidate to respond to an open letter pleading for a campaign to acknowledge and deliver justice to victimized and suffering American families. The immediacy of his campaign’s reply and the spotlight he shone on their plight was praised by an advocacy group that had fought for attention to the pressing issue for years.

“Donald Trump is the only candidate whose office has responded to their open letter and that the candidate will support a national program to assist families of victims of illegal aliens. Their response was immediate and they have stated they will support our efforts in assisting our families,” said Maria Espinoza, head of the Remembrance Project. Her organization plans to open an office in Washington, D.C. to support the program.

A December report estimated that some 820,000 illegals evaded deportation under the Obama regime — including roughly 620,000 convicted of terrible crimes such as murder and rape.

Top Obama Official Squeals: ‘We Faked Climate Change Data’

RELATED: >>>/rationalnews/37

Top Obama official Steven Koonin has become the latest Democrat to roll over and stab his former comrades in the back, telling the Wall Street Journal that Obama’s administration manipulated ‘climate change’ data to trick the public into accepting Democrat policies.

“What you saw coming out of the press releases about climate data, climate analysis, was, I’d say, misleading, sometimes just wrong,” said Koonin, former Undersecretary of the Department of Energy, referring to the Obama administration’s manipulations and lies.

According to Koonin’s explosive confession, departments responsible for environmental science either “misrepresented data” or “completely fabricated results” to justify the destructive policies of the Obama administration.

Scientists at NASA and the National Ocean and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) colluded with press officers to create deceitful press releases that propped up the former president’s agenda.

The Obama administration lived by Joseph Goebbels’ mantra: People will believe a big lie sooner than a little one; and if you repeat it often enough people will start to accept it as truth.

Sadly, many people around the world accepted the lies of the corrupt Obama administration. As a result, the economy stagnated, and elites such as Al Gore and Hillary Clinton made a killing.

NOAA was manipulating data

Koonin isn’t the only Obama-era Democrat official squealing on his former colleagues and blowing the whistle on the morally bankrupt Obama administration.

Retired principle climate scientist Dr. John Bates testified before a House Committee in February claiming that the NOAA was manipulating data.

Dr. Bates claimed that “the Karl study” was politically motivated, unscientific, and unsupported by data. “The Karl study” was a report designed to make excuses for the slowing of global temperature growth.

The Obama administration peddled lies and pseudoscience to “prove” that climate change is a real and dangerous phenomenon to justify their policies of increased regulation and size of government.

Corrupt scientists, motivated by politics and dirty money, completely abandoned the scientific method to support their Democratic paymasters. An entire industry, including the mercenary mainstream media, has been created around the easily debunked lie that the earth is getting warmer.

In 2007 Al Gore predicted that the polar ice caps would have completely melted away by 2013, but instead, since that time, they have grown larger.

Climate scientists were forced to change the name of their theory from Global Warming to Climate Change, because the enough people woke up to the fact that data did not support the big lie that the earth was warming.

Now it is becoming clear that climate change is also not supported by evidence.

Professional climate alarmists like Al Gore may have made millions peddling their pseudoscience and propaganda to the gullible masses, but their claims are simply not supported by any real science.

Masturbation Moves Closer to being Illegal in Texas

A proposed bill that would make male masturbation a criminal offence has taken a step closer to being written into the statute books in Texas, USA.

The proposal has no realistic chance of becoming law but may have greater success in its true objective: making a mockery of laws that target abortion rights in the state.

The satirical bill, entitled, The Man’s Right to Know Act, would permit Texan men to masturbate only under certain supervised conditions, such as inside health care and medical facilities.

It has been put forward by Jessica Farrar of Houston. In it she proposes that: “any unregulated masturbatory emissions outside of a woman’s vagina, or created outside of a health or medical facility, would be charged a $100 (90 euros) civil penalty for each emission, and would be considered an act against an unborn child, and failing to preserve the sanctity of life.”

Farrar also wants to promote “fully abstinent sexual relations” and to create a “hospital masturbatory assistance registry” to provide “fully abstinent encouragement counselling supervising physicians for masturbatory emissions, and storage for the semen.”

And any doctor performing a vasectomy or prescribing Viagra would need to give patients the booklet “A Man’s Right to Know.”

Currently a doctor performing an abortion must give women a booklet entitled “A Woman’s Right to Know.” Women must also undergo what Farrar describes as an “unnecessary” trans-vaginal ultrasound.

In response, her bill requires that any man undergoing a vasectomy have an equally unnecessary digital rectal exam and magnetic resonance imaging of the rectum.

For the bill to pass it would require the Texas House State Affairs Committee chairman, the Republican Byron Cook to hold a public hearing.

"The bill may be satirical, but the message sure resonated," Hillary Clinton told guests at a luncheon for Annie's List, though the polarizing bill may not be "satirical" for long, having made it past the first phase to becoming legislation after its reading last week in the House of Representatives.

The former First Lady continued, "When you seriously try to kick millions of women and families off their health insurance—when you believe it would be the right thing to do for your political base to defund Planned Parenthood even though the majority of America disagrees with you, that is not empowering women, that is just meanness, that is cruelty," she said to the downtown Houston audience.

Boycott Brain-to-Computer Interfaces! Biomedical Tech Could Delete Thoughts Without Your Knowledge

RELATED: >>>/ultranews/48

“Thou canst not touch the freedom of my mind,” wrote the playwright John Milton in 1634.

But, nearly 400 years later, technological advances in machines that can read our thoughts mean the privacy of our brain is under threat.

Now two biomedical ethicists are calling for the creation of new human rights laws to ensure people are protected, including “the right to cognitive liberty” and “the right to mental integrity.” How about not using these spy devices at all!?

Scientists have already developed devices capable of telling whether people are politically right-wing or left-wing. In one experiment, researchers were able to read people’s minds to tell with 70 per cent accuracy whether they planned to add or subtract two numbers.

Facebook also recently revealed it had been secretly working on technology to read people’s minds so they could type by just thinking.

And medical researchers have managed to connect part of a paralysed man’s brain to a computer to allow him to stimulate muscles in his arm so he could move it and feed himself.

Globalist technocrats have been shilling technocracy and digital enslavement for a while now, hoping that the goyim will jump on board and allow their most private thoughts to be monitored and controlled 24/7.

The ethicists, writing in a paper in the journal Life Sciences, Society and Policy, stressed the “unprecedented opportunities” that would result from the “ubiquitous distribution of cheaper, scalable and easy-to-use neuro-applications” that would make neurotechnology “intricately embedded in our everyday life”.

However, such devices are open to abuse on a frightening degree, as the academics made clear.

They warned that “malicious brain-hacking” and “hazardous uses of medical neurotechnology” could require a redefinition of the idea of mental integrity. Well no shit!?

“Illicit intrusions into a person’s mental privacy may not necessarily involve coercion, as they could be performed under the threshold of a persons’ conscious experience,” they wrote in the paper.

“The same goes for actions involving harm to a person’s mental life or unauthorised modifications of a person’s psychological continuity, which are also facilitated by the ability of emerging neurotechnologies to intervene into a person’s neural processing in absence of the person’s awareness.”

The IMF Is Not Done Destroying Greece Yet

The IMF Is Not Done Destroying Greece Yet

https://archive.fo/Lm4Eq

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-04-24/imf-not-done-destroying-greece-yet

Austerity is over, proclaimed the IMF this week. And no doubt attributed that to the ‘successful’ period of ‘five years of belt tightening’ a.k.a. ‘gradual fiscal consolidation’ it has, along with its econo-religious ilk, imposed on many of the world’s people. Only, it’s not true of course. Austerity is not over. You can ask many of those same people about that. It’s certainly not true in Greece.

In Greece, the government did not increase spending in 2016. Nor is the country’s era of spending cuts at an end. So did the IMF ‘forget’ about Greece? Or does it not count it as part of the rich world? Greece is a member of the EU, and the EU is absolutely part of the rich world, so that can’t be it. Something Freudian, wishful thinking perhaps?

However this may be, it’s obvious the IMF are not done with Greece yet. And neither are the rest of the Troika. They are still demanding measures that are dead certain to plunge the Greeks much further into their abyss in the future. As my friend Steve Keen put it to me recently: “Dreadful. It will become Europe’s Somalia.”

An excellent example of this is the Greek primary budget surplus. The Troika has been demanding that it reach 3.5% of GDP for the next number of years (the number changes all the time, 3, 5, 10?). Which is the worst thing it could do, at least for the Greek people and the Greek economy. Not for those who seek to buy Greek assets on the cheap.

But sure enough, the Hellenic Statistical Authority (ELSTAT) jubilantly announced on Friday that the 2016 primary surplus was 4.19% (8 times more than the 0.5% expected). This is bad news for Greeks, though they don’t know it. It is also a condition for receiving the next phase of the current bailout. Here’s what that comes down to: in order to save itself from default/bankruptcy, the country is required to destroy its economy.

And that’s not all: the surplus is a requirement to get a next bailout tranche, and debt relief, but as a reward for achieving that surplus, Greece can now expect to get less … debt relief. Because obviously they’re doing great, right?! They managed to squeeze another €7.3 billion out of their poor. So they should always be able to do that in every subsequent year.

The government in Athens sees the surplus as a ‘weapon’ that can be used in the never-ending bailout negotiations, but the Troika will simply move the goalposts again; that’s its MO.

A country in a shape as bad as Greece’s needs stimulus, not a budget surplus; a deficit would be much more helpful. You could perhaps demand that the country goes for a 0% deficit, though even that is far from ideal. But never a surplus. Every penny of the surplus should have been spent to make sure the economy doesn’t get even worse.

Greek news outlet Kathimerini gets it sort of right, though its headline should have read “Greek Primary Surplus Chokes Economy“.

The state’s fiscal performance last year has exceeded even the most ambitious targets, as the primary budget surplus as defined by the Greek bailout program, came to 4.19% of GDP, government spokesman Dimitris Tzanakopoulos announced on Friday. It came to €7.369 billion against a target for €879 million, or just 0.5% of GDP. A little earlier, the president of the Hellenic Statistical Authority (ELSTAT), Thanos Thanopoulos, announced the primary surplus according to Eurostat rules, saying that it came to 3.9% of GDP or €6.937 billion.

The two calculations differ in methodology, but it is the surplus attained according to the bailout rules that matters for assessing the course of the program. This was also the first time since 1995 that Greece achieved a general government surplus – equal to 0.7% of GDP – which includes the cost of paying interest to the country’s creditors. There is a downside to the news, however, as the figures point to overtaxation imposed last year combined with excessive containment of expenditure.

Leading Fox News Anchor Tucker Carlson Beat Up a Queer in 2007

If you thought Bill O’Reilly being replaced at Fox News was perhaps a step in the right direction, think again. Tucker Carlson, the dude tapped to replace O’Reilly, once bragged on national television about the time he and a buddy beat up a gay man in a bathroom.

That’s right, people. Fox News is trading it its “alleged” resident sexual harasser for an admitted resident gay basher. Yippee!

In 2007, back when George W. Bush was still president, DADT was still firmly in place, and marriage equality was years away from becoming the law of the land, Carlson went on MSNBC Live to brag about the time he beat up a gay man in a bathroom.

“Having sex in a public men’s room is outrageous,” Carlson said. “It’s also really common.”

Then he added, “I’ve been bothered in men’s rooms.”

Carlson went on to explain that the incident happened back when he was in high school and living in Washington, D.C.’s Georgetown Park neighborhood.

“People should knock that off,” Carlson ranted. “I’m not anti-gay in the slightest, but that’s really common, and the gay rights groups ought to disavow that kind of crap because, you know, that actually does bother people who didn’t ask for being bothered.”

When another guest on the show asked Carlson how he responded, he replied, “I went back with someone I knew and grabbed the guy by the–you know–and grabbed him and hit him against the stall with his head, actually. And then the cops came and arrested him.”

Did you catch that? Carlson left the premises to find a friend. Then the two of them returned to the scene to beat the guy up. And then they called the police.

Get ready, folks. This is the guy who will now be influencing the thoughts of all your conservative uncles, reclusive grandfathers, and unsupportive in-laws every night on television.

Politicians want to turn Wales into a 'nation of sanctuary' for refugees

Wales should be the world’s first ‘nation of sanctuary’ for refugees and asylum seekers, a National Assembly committee has declared.

The Equality, Local Government and Communities Committee heard that in 2016 one in every 113 humans was either a refugee, internally displaced, or seeking asylum – greater than the populations of the UK, France or Italy.

Last year, with an intensifying conflict in Syria and huge uncertainty across countries in the region, there were more displaced people in the world than at any other time in history.

“The constant news cycle of images and stories of people escaping war and persecution in Syria, Iraq and other countries brings home the tragedy of current world events and the stories people have told us during this inquiry have been both harrowing and distressing but ultimately inspiring,” said committee chair John Griffiths, the Labour AM for Newport East.

“As we heard those who survive the conflict, boat crossings, people traffickers and countless miles of travelling to reach the UK, including unaccompanied children, are likely to have experienced severely traumatic events which leave lasting psychological scars.

“We were told that a phrase often used by refugees and asylum seekers is ‘I used to be someone’. It is critical that there is the right support available to them when they reach Wales so that they can participate fully in Welsh life and have fulfilling lives in their new communities.”

UK “Proud” of Role in Establishing Israel, Won’t Apologize to PA for Balfour Declaration

The British government has reiterated its pride in its role in the creation of the State of Israel, in response to a sustained campaign asking the government to apologize for the Balfour Declaration.

A statement from the government read, “The Balfour Declaration is an historic statement for which HMG does not intend to apologise. We are proud of our role in creating the State of Israel. The task now is to encourage moves towards peace.”

The statement also reaffirmed the government’s belief that “establishing a homeland for the Jewish people in the land to which they had such strong historical and religious ties was the right and moral thing to do, particularly against the background of centuries of persecution.”

A high-profile Balfour Apology Campaign had launched a petition on the British Parliament website calling on Britain to “openly apologise to the Palestinian people for issuing the Balfour Declaration,” ahead of its centenary in November. In an address to the Arab League in March, Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas demanded the United Kingdom apologize for granting the Balfour Declaration.

However, in December Prime Minister Theresa May eschewed the notion that Britain would apologize, referring to the centenary as “an anniversary we will be marking with pride” at a Conservative Friends of Israel event.

New CIA Director is Waging War on Truth-tellers / Whistleblowers

New CIA Director is Waging War on Truth-tellers / Whistleblowers

https://archive.fo/oNwY4

https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/julian-assange-the-cia-director-is-waging-war-on-truth-tellers-like-wikileaks/2017/04/25/b8aa5cfc-29c7-11e7-a616-d7c8a68c1a66_story.html

Mike Pompeo, in his first speech as director of the CIA, chose to declare war on free speech rather than on the United States’ actual adversaries. He went after WikiLeaks, where I serve as editor, as a “non-state hostile intelligence service.” In Pompeo’s worldview, telling the truth about the administration can be a crime — as Attorney General Jeff Sessions quickly underscored when he described my arrest as a “priority.” News organizations reported that federal prosecutors are weighing whether to bring charges against members of WikiLeaks, possibly including conspiracy, theft of government property and violating the Espionage Act.

All this speech to stifle speech comes in reaction to the first publication in the start of WikiLeaks’ “Vault 7” series. Vault 7 has begun publishing evidence of remarkable CIA incompetence and other shortcomings. This includes the agency’s creation, at a cost of billions of taxpayer dollars, of an entire arsenal of cyber viruses and hacking programs — over which it promptly lost control and then tried to cover up the loss. These publications also revealed the CIA’s efforts to infect the public’s ubiquitous consumer products and automobiles with computer viruses:

https://web.archive.org/web/20170426031423/https://8ch.net/realnews/res/2003.html

When the director of the CIA, an unelected public servant, publicly demonizes a publisher such as WikiLeaks as a “fraud,” “coward” and “enemy,” it puts all journalists on notice, or should. Pompeo’s next talking point, unsupported by fact, that WikiLeaks is a “non-state hostile intelligence service,” is a dagger aimed at Americans’ constitutional right to receive honest information about their government. This accusation mirrors attempts throughout history by bureaucrats seeking, and failing, to criminalize speech that reveals their own failings.

President Theodore Roosevelt understood the danger of giving in to those “foolish or traitorous persons who endeavor to make it a crime to tell the truth about the Administration when the Administration is guilty of incompetence or other shortcomings.” Such “endeavor is itself a crime against the nation,” Roosevelt wrote. President Trump and his officials should heed that advice.

Words matter, and I assume that Pompeo meant his when he said, “Julian Assange has no First Amendment freedoms. He’s sitting in an embassy in London. He’s not a U.S. citizen.” As a legal matter, this statement is simply false. It underscores just how dangerous it is for an unelected official whose agency’s work is rooted in lying and misdirection to be the sole arbiter of the truth and the interpreter of the Constitution.

Pompeo demonstrated a remarkable lack of irony when he suggested that WikiLeaks “focus instead on the autocratic regimes in this world that actually suppress free speech and dissent” — even as he called for a crackdown of such speech. In fact, Pompeo finds himself in the unsavory company of Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey (257,934 documents published by WikiLeaks); Bashar al-Assad of Syria (2.3 million documents); and the dictatorship in Saudi Arabia (122,609 documents), to name just a few who have tried and failed to censor WikiLeaks.

Sheriff’s deputies near the south Georgia city of Douglas pulled over a man driving a Lincoln Navigator on Friday afternoon for what Coffee County authorities described as a traffic violation.

Deputies said they soon learned that the man’s SUV was uninsured, and because they reportedly smelled marijuana inside the Lincoln, they searched it for drugs.

“While officers were searching the vehicle,” the sheriff’s write-up noted, “the suspect, Ronnie D. Moore III, became irate, and a bag of suspected marijuana and another bag containing suspected methamphetamine fell from Moore’s colostomy bag. Moore attempted to swallow the bags whole, but officers were able to intervene and confiscate the drugs.”

Communist French Mayor Calls Residents 'Assholes', Quits After His Town Votes for Le Pen

The left wing mayor of the northern French town of Annezin, Daniel Delomez, has announced his resignation after residents in his town voted for anti-amnesty Front National leader Marine Le Pen.

Delomez called the result of the first round of the French presidential election “catastrophic” as Le Pen and independent Emmanuel Macron advanced to the second round. The reason for his resignation, according to the mayor, was that he felt it was a waste of his time serving people he referred to as “arseholes”, L’Avenir de L’Artois reports.

Ms. Le Pen received a massive 38 per cent of the vote in the small town located in the Pas-de-Calais region, a Front National stronghold.

“It is catastrophic,” Mr. Delomez said. “It’s possible that I will step down as I do not want to dedicate my life to arseholes.”

“I was annoyed that so many people could vote FN,” Delomez said. He told media that he initially voted for Mélenchon, but would now switch his vote to pro-globalist candidate Macron in the second round of the French presidential elections on 7 May. Delomez said that he intends to present his resignation after discussing the matter with his political group in the local council on Tuesday.

“I’m 70 years old, I’ve been a mayor for nine years, I’m a little blasé,” he said.

The results of the first round of the French presidential election has caused upset in the political establishment as both the candidate of the Socialist party, Benoît Hamon, and the candidate of the conservative Republicans, François Fillon, failed to make it past the first round.

In her victory speech Sunday night, anti-amnesty candidate Marine Le Pen said the second round was now a fight between the forces of globalism and nationalism. She said the “survival of France” was at stake. Le Pen called her rival Macron the heir of immensely unpopular globalist puppet François Hollande.

Le Pen has promised to hold a referendum on European Union membership and restore order to France which has been rocked by terror attacks and near constant rioting and protests against the unpopular policies of Hollande.

music venue name changed because it honoured someone associated with the slave trade

A music venue is to ditch the "toxic" name it shares with a 17th Century slave trader.

Colston Hall bosses had previously maintained that the Bristol attraction was named after the street it is on, rather than Edward Colston.

Much of the Bristol-born MP and merchant's wealth came from the slave trade.

The change, which will not come into effect until 2020, follows a campaign to urge Colston Hall to alter its name.

Ready for 'backlash'

Louise Mitchell, chief executive of the Bristol Music Trust charity that runs Colston Hall, said it was the "right thing to do" for artists, the public and the "diverse workforce" at the venue, which recently announced plans for a refurbishment costing nearly £50m.

She said: "The name Colston does not reflect the trust's values as a progressive, forward-thinking and open arts organisation.

"We want to look to the future and ensure the whole city is proud of its transformed concert hall and so when we open the new hall, it will be with a new name."

Military Is Ramping Up Preparation For Major US Power Grid Hack

RELATED: >>>/realnews/665

The U.S. Department of Defense is growing increasingly concerned about hackers taking down our power grid and crippling the nation, which is why the Pentagon has created a $77-million security plan that it hopes will be up and running by 2020.

The U.S. power grid is threatened every few days. While these physical and cyber attacks have never led to wide-scale outages, attacks are getting more sophisticated. According to a 494-page report released by the Department of Energy in January, the nation’s grid “faces imminent danger from cyber attacks.” Such a major, sweeping attack could threaten “U.S. lifeline networks, critical defense infrastructure, and much of the economy; it could also endanger the health and safety of millions of citizens.” If it were to happen today, America could be powered-down and vulnerable for weeks.

The DoD is working on an automated system to speed up recovery time to a week or less — what it calls the Rapid Attack Detection, Isolation, and Characterization (RADICS) program. DARPA, the Pentagon’s research arm, originally solicited proposals in late 2015, asking for technology that did three things. Primarily, it had to detect early warning signs and distinguish between attacks and normal outages, but it also had to pinpoint the access point of the attack and determine what malicious software was used. Finally, it must include an emergency system that can rapidly connect various power-supply centers, without any human coordination. This would allow emergency and military responders to have an ad hoc communication system in place moments after an attack.

“If a well-coordinated cyberattack on the nation’s power grid were to occur today, the time it would take to restore power would pose daunting national security challenges,” said DARPA program manager John Everett, in a statement, at the time. “Beyond the severe domestic impacts, including economic and human costs, prolonged disruption of the grid would hamper military mobilization and logistics, impairing the government’s ability to project force or pursue solutions to international crises.”

DARPA plans to spend $77 million on RADICS. Last November, SRI International announced it had received $7.3 million from the program. In December, Raython was granted $9 million. The latest addition is BAE Systems, which received $8.6 million last month to develop technology that detects and contains power-grid threats, and creates a secure emergency provisional system that restores some power and communication in the wake of an attack — what is being called a secure emergency network.

According to the military news site Defense Systems, BAE’s SEN would rely on radio, satellite, or wireless internet — whatever is available that allows the grid to continue working. The SEN would serve as a wireless connection between separate power grid stations.

While the ultimate goal of the RADICS program will be the restoration of civilian power and communications, the SEN will prioritize communication networks that would be used for defense or combat, so the U.S. government can still wage war while the rest of us are in the dark.

80-Year-Old Black Man Gets Horny, Grabs a Gun and Viagra, Rapes White Chick with His Old Black Penis

KOKOMO, Indiana – Kokomo police arrested an 80-year-old man accused of confining and raping a woman at gunpoint Sunday night.

The Kokomo Police Department received a 911 call at 5:55 a.m. Monday from a 29-year-old woman who said she had been held and raped at gunpoint at a house in the 1400 block of North Lafountain Street.

The woman told police she had gone to the house to sell an electronic tablet.

Officers obtained a search warrant for the residence, and at 11:30 a.m. Kokomo SWAT officers approached the home – at which point two male subjects exited the house without incident.

Police arrested two men in connection with the case: 80-year-old William T. Graham and 56-year-old Robert Meriwether Sr., both of Kokomo.

Graham faces preliminary charges of rape, confinement and armed robbery. Meriwether was arrested on outstanding warrants from Howard County.

The victim was transported to an Indianapolis hospital for medical treatment. Police said she suffered minor injuries.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact the Kokomo Police Department at 765-456-7017.

Battersea,London murder: Cyclist, 17, 'hacked to death by masked gang

A 17-year-old cyclist was hacked to death by masked youths wielding machetes in a terrifying attack on a London housing estate, witnesses said today.

The victim was chased by a gang wearing balaclavas and carrying large knives who stabbed him multiple times and left him sprawled on the bonnet of a car in Battersea.

Neighbours told how they raised the alarm after being woken at 1.25am on Sunday by the boy’s scream of “help me, I’m dying”.

He was rushed to a south London hospital by paramedics where he he was pronounced dead around 90 minutes later.

He is the fourth teenager to be murdered in London in this month alone, and the eighth this year.

Friends of Battersea stab victim: 'It's dangerous on the streets'

Residents in Ingrave Street said the gang arrived on the estate in a car and had been “hassling” passers-by earlier in the evening.

But it remains to be seen if moderate Republicans wary of the plan will get behind it.

Fascist Communists Try To Kill Global Warming Skeptic

Shots were fired at the fourth floor of a science and technology center at the University of Alabama-Huntsville sometime over the weekend, hitting windows adjacent to climatologist John Christy’s office.

No one was hurt, and university police have characterized the event as a “random shooting,” UAH spokesman Ray Garner told WHNT News. Police found “seven spent Belgian 5.7 millimeter bullet casings along Sparkman Drive” near the National Space Science and Technology Center, WHNT reported.

“My office was not hit, but the one next door and then further north had bullet impacts on the windows,” Christy told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

“Appears to be a drive-by from the trajectories from the street parallel to the building,” Christy added.

Three bullets hit windows, while four hit the side of the National Space Science and Technology Center. An incident report was filed after building staff discovered shards of glass Monday morning.

Christy is a well-respected climatologist who’s spent decades using satellites to measure global temperatures. He is considered a skeptic of man-made global warming, and environmentalists and left-leaning scientists have attacked him for challenging the credibility of climate models.

Christy’s research has shown climate models massively over-predicted global warming, and he’s also done extensive research into flaws with surface-based temperature readings from weather stations.

While police say the shooting looks to be random, Christy’s colleague, Dr. Roy Spencer, said it’s “more than coincidence” that shots were fired around Earth Day.

“When some people cannot argue facts, they resort to violence to get their way,” Spencer wrote in his blog. “It doesn’t matter that we don’t ‘deny global warming;’ the fact we disagree with its seriousness and the level of human involvement in warming is enough to send some radicals into a tizzy.”

BOOM! Italians have proof refugee groups are working with human smugglers

http://archive.is/UenMh

An Italian prosecutor says he has evidence some of the charities saving migrants in the Mediterranean Sea are colluding with people-smugglers.

Carmelo Zuccaro told La Stampa (in Italian) phone calls were being made from Libya to rescue vessels.

Organisations involved in rescue operations have rejected accusations of collusion, saying their only concern is to save lives.

Italy is the main route for migrants trying to reach Europe.

Almost 1,000 people are thought to have drowned in waters between Libya and Italy this year, according to the UN refugee agency.

Nearly 37,000 people have been rescued over the same period, a surge of more than 40% from last year, the figures say.

"We have evidence that there are direct contacts between certain NGOs [non-governmental organisations] and people traffickers in Libya," Mr Zuccaro is quoted as saying in La Stampa.

Pope Francis: Europe migrant centres are 'concentration camps'

He said that telephone calls were being made from Libya and rescuers were shining lamps to direct smugglers' vessels and turning off transponders so boats could not be traced.

But he did not say he would open a criminal investigation.

Good! White House Readies Order On Withdrawing From NAFTA

The Trump administration is considering an executive order on withdrawing the U.S. from NAFTA, according to two White House officials.

A draft order has been submitted for the final stages of review and could be unveiled late this week or early next week, the officials said. The effort, which still could change in the coming days as more officials weigh in, would indicate the administration’s intent to withdraw from the sweeping pact by triggering the timeline set forth in the deal.

The approach appears designed to extract better terms with Canada and Mexico. President Donald Trump pledged on the campaign trail to renegotiate NAFTA, a trade deal signed in 1994 by former President Bill Clinton that removes tariffs and allows for the free flow of goods and services between the three countries in North America. Trump in recent weeks has stepped up his rhetoric vowing to terminate the agreement altogether.

“NAFTA’s been very, very bad for our country,” he said in a speech last week in Kenosha, Wisconsin. “It’s been very, very bad for our companies and for our workers, and we’re going to make some very big changes or we are going to get rid of NAFTA once and for all.”

Peter Navarro, the head of Trump’s National Trade Council, drafted the executive order in close cooperation with White House chief strategist Steve Bannon. The executive order was submitted this week to the staff secretary for the final stages of review, according to one of the White House officials.

The draft executive order could be a hardball negotiating tactic designed to bring Mexico and Canada to the table to renegotiate NAFTA. But once Trump sets the withdrawal process in motion, the prospects for the U.S. pulling out of one of the largest trade deals on the globe become very real.

Good! While RINO Congress Stalls, Real Conservatives Scoring Big Wins At State Level (Repost!)

As Congress returns from recess, we hold out hope that they will make better use of this session than the last one and work to fulfill their campaign promises. But even while politicians in the House and Senate were away from Washington this week, state legislatures remained active.

All across the nation, conservative grassroots activists are pushing for laws that will limit the size and scope of the government, increase individual liberty and restore constitutionally-guaranteed rights. And they've had some remarkable successes in the past several weeks.

In Arizona, grassroots pushed to protect crucial civil and economic liberties. Although designed to target organized crime like drug cartels, civil asset forfeiture laws permitted police officers and prosecutors to seize property and money on the mere suspicion of a crime. This deprives citizens — who may never be arrested, charged, or convicted of a crime — of both their right to property and their right to due process, putting far too much power in the hands of lawyers and law enforcement.

Grassroots activists made their voices heard, making more than 9,000 contacts with officials. Gov. Doug Ducey, R-Ariz., signed the bill that makes seizing property more difficult and raises the standard for prosecutors by requiring "clear and convincing evidence" that property was used in a criminal activity.

Although centrist and liberal Republicans in Washington have flipped on their promises to protect the right of individuals to control their own healthcare, Iowa has made massive strides towards this key goal. "Right to try" legislation has passed in both chambers and is due to appear on Republican Gov. Terry Branstad's desk, thanks to the relentless work of state-level activists.

The legislation permits terminally-ill patients who can't get into clinical trials of drugs, after consulting with their doctor, to try drugs that have passed Phase I of FDA standards but have not yet been fully approved. To protect caregivers and insurance companies, the bill also allows hospice and insurance to refuse care and coverage to the patient after they have decided to take the drugs.

In Kentucky, conservative grassroots sent 4,000 messages to state legislators to support the criminal justice reform legislation SB 120. The bill passed through the House and the Senate and was just signed into law by Republican Gov. Matt Bevin. It makes significant reforms to improve Kentucky's criminal justice system, including permitting convicts to work minimum-wage jobs while in prison, letting them study for an occupational license, and making the process of obtaining these licenses fairer after release.

In addition to helping the currently incarcerated, the law also supports those who might be on their way to prison and those who have been released. It prevents law enforcement from imprisoning poor individuals because they cannot afford to pay their fines or court costs. It allows those on parole to lower their time by earning credits through good behavior. And it also creates substance-abuse and re-entry programs for those on parole and the formerly-incarcerated.

The combined impact of these reforms will reduce the amount of money taxpayers spend on corrections and increase public safety by incentivizing drug treatment and good behavior on the part of the formerly-incarcerated.

Globalist Macron Will Allow Islamic Terror To Subjugate And Kill French Civilians (Repost!)

RELATED: >>>/realnews/364

En Marche presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron slammed Marine Le Pen’s proposal to arrest radical Islamists saying it would be counter-productive.

Mr Macron took direct exception to Le Pen’s comments Friday morning when the Front National presidential candidate called for the arrest of all known radical Islamists and the deportation of Islamists without French citizenship Le Figaro reports. Le Pen made the comments after reports that the shooter of three police in Paris Thursday night had been known to police as an Islamic extremist.

“The goal is an intelligence goal,” Macron said. ” If you put them all in jail, first of all, it is not in accordance with the law,” he added, “The goal is to follow them.”

Macron also hit out at comments made by Le Pen earlier this week in which she claimed that under a Le Pen presidency none of the major attacks in the last five years would have happened. “I heard a few days ago Ms Le Pen say ‘with me, there would have been no such attack.’ No, zero risk does not exist, we live and we will live permanently with the threat of Terrorism,” he said.

Overall Macron’s reaction to the terror attack Thursday has been what he’s called a “spirit of responsibility in this extreme period” and described terrorism as, “part of our daily lives for the years to come.”

After Losing 2016 Election, Democrats Are Defecting to US Communist Party (Repost!)

People’s World, the bilingual news site of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA), reports on April 19, 2017, that CPUSA “has been receiving membership requests ever since Donald Trump was elected President.”

Emile Schepers, CPUSA’s International Secretary and an anthropologist by profession who was born in South Africa, told Granma International that “Although the phantom of the McCarthy era still looms across the U.S., there is growing interest in communist ideas. The global financial crisis affected many people and left the sense that today’s youth are worse off than their parents. Neither recent Democratic nor Republican administrations have been able to resolve the serious problems affecting the majority of the country’s citizens. Although the United States is in no way experiencing a pre-revolutionary situation in the communist sense, capitalism is showing terminal signs worldwide.”

What Schepers neglected to say is that Marxist intellectuals have been insisting that “capitalism is showing terminal signs worldwide” for more than a century.

But how to explain the 2016 U.S. election that voted uber capitalist Donald Trump as president?

Schepers attributed that to an “ideological manipulation” that unleashed a right-wing upsurge because “popular discontent doesn’t always take a progressive route.” Even in his current home state of Virginia, not only the wealthy, but also many poor whites with “false class consciousness” voted for Trump. Schepers attributes Americans’ “false class consciousness” to the mass media “controlled by corporations and local news stations in the interior of the country [that] only broadcast preachers announcing the end of the world.”

Schepers is convinced that if Bernie Sanders had been Trump’s opponent, Sanders would have won — the same avowed socialist Sanders who is a millionaire with three homes, including a $600,000 lakefront estate purchased just five days after the 2016 Democratic National Convention that selected Hillary Clinton as the party’s presidential candidate.

Schepers admits that the great challenge for CPUSA continues to be organizing American workers and trade unions.

CPUSA has stopped offering its own candidate in US presidential elections. Instead, CPUSA has endorsed Democratic Party presidential candidates in every election since 1988, beginning with Michael Dukakis to Hillary Clinton in 2016.

The CPUSA opposes U.S. militarism and supports the Palestinian cause, the Cuban Revolution and more recently the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela — the same corrupt regime that mismanaged and destroyed the Venezuelan economy, and ignores and suppresses the tens of thousands of Venezuelans who protest and march against the government. Way to go, CPUSA!

Boycott Chobani Yogurt! After Hiring Jihadists, Chobani Is Suing Conservative News Outlets

Original thread 404'd! Repost!

Chobani is suing a right wing news website called "Infowars" over a video that claims Chobani was “caught importing migrant rapists.”

The video exposed Chobani hiring illegals associated with a Twin Falls sexual assault case involving three refugee boys and that the yogurt company’s factory has brought “crime and tuberculosis” to the Twin Falls community.

The video was shared online April 11 by Jones, InfoWars and other right-wing news outlets linked to Jones.

“Defendant Alex Jones is no stranger to spurious statements,” the lawsuit reads. ”He has claimed that the U.S. government orchestrated the 9/11 attacks and the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut. The Southern Poverty Law Center described Mr. Jones as ‘almost certainly the most prolific conspiracy theorist in contemporary America.’ Mr. Jones has now taken aim at Chobani and the Twin Falls community.”

The video was published a week after three juveniles pleaded guilty to felonies in the assault of a 5-year-girl at the Fawnbrook Apartments in Twin Falls.

That juvenile case is sealed, so details of the assault are not public (as to cover-up the horrific crimes committed because of Obama's amnesty), but three boys age 14, 10 and 7 all pleaded guilty to felonies earlier this month

Calls to boycott yogurt giant Chobani have proliferated as the company has welcomed refugees into its two factories, located in the generally conservative areas of upstate New York and Idaho.

"Be sure you boycott Chobani Yogurt! That Muzzie that owns it is hell bent on filling Idaho with Muslims," one critic tweeted last month: https:// archive.fo/AIkzl

Brit college students are so fed up with SJWs they're joining the Conservatives

> Student Tory groups swell in backlash at Left-wing activists

>by Harry Yorke, Online Education Editor Luke Mintz Charlie Peters

https://archive.is/7RJBY

>Students are joining university Conservative societies in growing numbers in reaction to the activities of left-wing activists on campus, it has been claimed.

>Several Conservative student groups at Britain's leading universities doubled in size last year, new figures show - with membership at the Cambridge University Conservative Association swelling by more than 40 per cent.

>The number of new members at Brunel University’s student Conservative society has surged by more than 400 per cent, while the Conservative and Unionist Association at Edinburgh University has almost tripled in size.

>King's College London, Kent and Reading have also seen membership subscriptions increase by 30-40 per cent in the last academic year.

>Conservative student leaders say the influx of new members is in response to what they say are attacks on free speech by left- wing student groups.

>They claim the Rhodes Must Fall campaign for the removal of a statue of colonialist Cecil Rhodes from the grounds of Oriel College led to hundreds of students joining Oxford University’s student Conservative society.

>William Rees-Mogg, President of Oxford's Conservative society and nephew of MP Jacob Rees-Mogg, said students were abandoning other societies out of fear that their views would be derided by other members.

>“It’s the fact that you won’t get told off simply for having right-of centre views, that’s a major draw,” said Mr Rees-Mogg, whose society holds a weekly drinking event called ‘Port and Policy’, where members debate anything from the legacy of the British Empire to the merits of Divine Right Absolutism.

>Alastair Ward-Booth, chairman of Cambridge's Conservative Association, said membership had surged because students were seeking “respite” from the “insane and exclusionary” politics of left-wing groups.

>He said: “Students seem to be fed up with the irrelevance of politically correct student politics. We also suspect Jeremy Corbyn might be doing us many favours.”

>The Tory student surge comes less than a week before the National Union of Students annual elections, which could see Tom Harwood, a 20-year-old undergraduate at Durham University, become the first Conservative president of the NUS since the modern organisation emerged in 1969.

>Mr Harwood, who ran the pro-Brexit ‘Students for Britain’ campaign during the European Referendum last year, claims he will be voted in by a “silent majority” of students.

>He said: “The silent majority of today’s students are moderates and Conservatives. There are parallels between how the Labour Party and the NUS have declined recently. The NUS has become an introspective organisation that doesn’t connect with the wider audience of students; the Labour Party mirrors this.”

>Mr Harwood is hoping to oust the NUS’s sitting President Malia Bouattia, who has been accused of being soft on anti-Semitism among student groups.

>Mr Harwood accuses Ms Bouattia of using her position as a “political project” to further her own interests and says that ==her “fixation” with Israel had damaged the “legitimacy” of the NUS==.

>It follows criticism of Ms Bouattia by the Home Affairs Select Committee last year, which concluded that several comments made by her prior to her election “smacked” of “outright racism”.

>Since her appointment, four university students’ unions have also voted to disaffiliate from the NUS.

>At the same time several Labour societies have reported a steep decline in numbers.

>While the Conservative society at Imperial College has grown by nearly 50 per cent, the Labour society, which had 56 members last year, has seen its membership fall to just 38 in 2017.

>At University College London, Labour society membership has fallen from 110 to 94, while the Oxford University Labour Club said it is unable to provide figures because the website used to sign-up new members had recently expired.

>Eliot Smith, President of Reading Conservatives, said the breaking point for many students took place last year, when left-wing students attempted to boycott Jeremy Paxman from speaking on campus because he had allegedly made "sexist comments" on University Challenge.

>'He added that many members were exasperated by so-called "special snowflakes" and found their actions to be "quite silly".'

Trump’s Border Wall Request Only Equals 0.035% of Federal Spending

President Donald Trump’s request that Congress include $1.4 billion to fund the beginning of his proposed wall on the U.S.-Mexico border equals approximately 0.035 percent of what the federal government will spend in total this year, according to the latest estimate of fiscal year 2017 federal spending made by the Congressional Budget Office.

It also equals less than the Department of Health and Human Services spends in just twelve hours and less than the Treasury collects in taxes in four hours.

That is assuming that HHS spends money 24 hours a day and the Treasury collects it 24 hours a day.

In its baseline budget projections published in January, the CBO estimated that in fiscal 2017, which runs through September, the federal government will collect $3,404,000,000,000 in taxes and spend $3,963,000,000,000.

On March 16, President Trump sent a letter to House Speaker Paul Ryan requesting certain items be included in the continuing resolution that Congress must pass to fund the government for the remainder of the fiscal year after the current CR expires on April 28.

This letter requested approximately $1.4 billion for Trump’s border wall project.

An OMB summary of the president’s request—which was attached to his letter to Speaker Ryan–asked that the CR include: “1.4 billion for CBP [Customs and Border Protection] Procurement, Construction and Improvements, including $999 million for planning, design, and construction of the first installment of the border wall, $179 million for access roads, gates, and other tactical infrastructure projects, and $200 million for border security technology deployments.”

The OMB summary also calls for “$18 million for project management, oversight and support for the border wall.”

The $1.4 billion Trump wants from Congress in this fiscal year to begin the border wall project equals 0.035 percent of the $3.963 trillion the CBO estimates the federal government will spend this fiscal year.

By comparison, the Department of Health and Human Services alone will spend an estimated $1,108,457,000,000 in fiscal 2017, according to the Monthly Treasury Statement. That $1,108,457,000,000 in annual HHS spending equals approximately $126,546,187 for each of the 8,760 hours in the fiscal year.

In other words, HHS will spend approximately $126,536,187 per hour this year—assuming that it spends money 24 hours a day.

That means that HHS spends in about 11 hours an amount equal to the $1.4 billion that President Trump wants this fiscal year for the border wall project.

In half a day—12 hours—HHS spends more than Trump wants for the border wall for the entire year.

A couple weeks ago Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd blasted Speaker Paul Ryan for not funding President Trump’s border wall in this year’s budget.

Yael Trump goes Feminist, meets with Merkel, UN Feminists and visits Holohoax Memorial

IT NEVER ENDS THIS SHIT

Yael Trump, who seems to carry the banner for every currently popular cockamamie politically correct fad, is in Berlin today for a conference on women. She was invited to the conference by the statist nation-wrecker German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

While in Berlin, she will attend a panel discussion as part of the W20 Summit, a women-focused [code for fourth wave marxist-feminism] effort within the Group of 20 countries. She will also take in a technical school, visit the United States embassy and visit the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe.

In advance of the summit, Ivanka co-authored with globalist stooge and World Bank President Jim Yong Kim an op-ed in the Financial Times. In the article, which is behind the FT paywall, but can be accessed through archive.is she laments that women spend too much time at home and with their children and not enough time as indebted taxslaves or welfare cases.

She writes: "We know what works. We need to increase access to finance, redistribute care work, accelerate progress to financial inclusion,"

This is UNspeak for getting women to run up their credit cards, stick their children in daycare centers and become addicted to male-financed government welfare programs.

She continues: "Only 55 per cent of women participate in the paid labour force globally and they continue to be an untapped source of growth."

They're not in the global control grid, they can't be taxed and their life essence remains untapped.

There are other whoppers in there like this one "Research shows a correlation between the number of women on boards and higher corporate profits." or this one "The evidence is overwhelming that supporting women’s economic participation has enormous dividends for families, communities, and whole economies.

COMMUNISM: Canadian Kids Seized From Parents For Saying Easter Bunny Isn’t Real

A Canadian couple have had their children removed from them by the communist State after they refused to tell their kids the Easter Bunny is real.

Foster parents Derek and Frances Baars have filed court papers against Hamilton Children’s Aid Society after the agency demanded they tell their children that the Easter Bunny is a “real entity.”

Rt.com reports: https://archive.fo/hKM2m

“We were committed to not lying to children,” Derek Baars said, adding “they could expect the truth from us and we expected the truth from them.”

The couple, who are devout Christians, told the agency that they “do not endorse Santa Claus or the Easter Bunny as they do not wish to lie to children.” They had noted that they don’t celebrate Halloween before they were approved as foster parents.

Derek is studying to become an ordained minister in the Reform Presbyterian Church of North America, while Frances is a nanny with an Early Childhood Education diploma.

The couple was approved to foster in December of 2015 and soon fostered two girls, aged 3 and 4, who had been temporarily removed from their parents.

“We neither confirmed or denied the existence of Santa Claus,” Baars said, noting “we gave them gifts for Christmas and they were part of our extended family celebration. They had a good day.”

However, the girls’ biological parents were upset to learn that there was no photograph of the girls with Santa Claus.

As Easter grew nearer, the Baars said the girls’ support worker became when she learned that the couple wasn’t teaching the children about the Easter Bunny.

1,000 Shot in Gun Control Mega City So Far This Year

Chicago hit a grim milestone Tuesday, with more than a thousand people shot in the Midwestern US city since the beginning of the year.

According to the Chicago Tribune newspaper 1,008 people have been shot in the city — at least 182 fatally — since the beginning of January, a pace roughly unchanged since the same period last year.

The largest city in the Midwest has been struggling with a stubbornly high murder rate that peaked at more than 750 last year, the highest in two decades.

The Chicago Police Department (CPD) offered conflicting data for the first four months of 2017, saying 172 people were killed and 954 shot — a nine percent decline compared to the same period last year.

The police department did not account for shootings on area expressways under the jurisdiction of a separate agency, which could explain the conflicting data, according to CPD spokesman Kevin Quaid.

There were also 3,500 shootings, mostly concentrated in poor sections of the city with rampant gang and drug-related violence.

The city plans to hire nearly 1,000 additional officers over two years to address the problem, and is increasingly relying on high-tech solutions.

Quaid highlighted the addition of “intelligence hubs” in the city’s violence-plagued neighborhoods as one reason they are reporting fewer shootings so far this year.

“Officers and data analysts run historical crime data, gang intelligence, and social networking analytics through predictive software programming to help officers focus on the right people, at the right place, at the right time,” Quaid told AFP in an email.

Chicago police last week became the first US police agency to use a new web tool where residents can anonymously report crime.

After Losing 2016 Election, Democrats Are Defecting to US Communist Party

People’s World, the bilingual news site of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA), reports on April 19, 2017, that CPUSA “has been receiving membership requests ever since Donald Trump was elected President.”

Emile Schepers, CPUSA’s International Secretary and an anthropologist by profession who was born in South Africa, told Granma International that “Although the phantom of the McCarthy era still looms across the U.S., there is growing interest in communist ideas. The global financial crisis affected many people and left the sense that today’s youth are worse off than their parents. Neither recent Democratic nor Republican administrations have been able to resolve the serious problems affecting the majority of the country’s citizens. Although the United States is in no way experiencing a pre-revolutionary situation in the communist sense, capitalism is showing terminal signs worldwide.”

What Schepers neglected to say is that Marxist intellectuals have been insisting that “capitalism is showing terminal signs worldwide” for more than a century.

But how to explain the 2016 U.S. election that voted uber capitalist Donald Trump as president?

Schepers attributed that to an “ideological manipulation” that unleashed a right-wing upsurge because “popular discontent doesn’t always take a progressive route.” Even in his current home state of Virginia, not only the wealthy, but also many poor whites with “false class consciousness” voted for Trump. Schepers attributes Americans’ “false class consciousness” to the mass media “controlled by corporations and local news stations in the interior of the country [that] only broadcast preachers announcing the end of the world.”

Schepers is convinced that if Bernie Sanders had been Trump’s opponent, Sanders would have won — the same avowed socialist Sanders who is a millionaire with three homes, including a $600,000 lakefront estate purchased just five days after the 2016 Democratic National Convention that selected Hillary Clinton as the party’s presidential candidate.

Schepers admits that the great challenge for CPUSA continues to be organizing American workers and trade unions.

CPUSA has stopped offering its own candidate in US presidential elections. Instead, CPUSA has endorsed Democratic Party presidential candidates in every election since 1988, beginning with Michael Dukakis to Hillary Clinton in 2016.

The CPUSA opposes U.S. militarism and supports the Palestinian cause, the Cuban Revolution and more recently the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela — the same corrupt regime that mismanaged and destroyed the Venezuelan economy, and ignores and suppresses the tens of thousands of Venezuelans who protest and march against the government. Way to go, CPUSA!

Illegal Alien Raped 9-Year-Old Girl In Oregon, MSM Silent

RELATED: >>>/realnews/1015 (https://archive.fo/paRm0)

I have been covering the atrocities committed by illegal aliens for years but I have never seen anything like this recent epidemic. In March and April alone there have been over a dozen, what should have been high-profile, cases of illegal aliens raping and sexually assaulting mostly little girls. This latest outrage comes from Oregon where an illegal alien raped a 9-year-old girl. Liberals must be thrilled that an immigrant has found such empowerment in this land of opportunity.

KATU reports that on February 26, a man broke into a Clackamas County, OR apartment and entered a 9-year-old girl’s bedroom while she slept. He began sexually assaulting her and she woke up. The intruder tried to hold her down but she fought him off and ran to her parent’s room. Her dad grabbed his gun and returned to the little girl’s room, but the rapist had already escaped out the window.

Through fingerprints left at the scene, police were able to identity the attacker as 48-year-old Santiago Martinez-Flores. As you may have already guessed, this scumbag is in this country illegally. Like so many of these illegal alien sexual predators, he has also been previously deported. In 2001 he was sent back to Mexico after serving 2 years in prison. He has a lengthy criminal history though no specifics were given.

On Monday police released a picture of Martinez-Flores and asked for the public’s help in bringing this piece of shit to justice.

Fox 12 interviewed some neighbors in the apartment complex where the assault took place and this guy had the quote of the day:

“This is why people are going to start hating illegal immigrants even more, ’cause stuff like that,” said tenant Vasiliy Tereshchnko.

That’s not entirely true. Liberals love illegal aliens and say they are just trying to make a better life and enrich our country in every way.

And here’s what the good life for illegal aliens has looked like in the past two months:

April 25 – Police announce illegal alien as suspect in rape of 9-year-old girl.

April 25 – Illegal alien arrested for sexually assaulting 14-year-old girl in Philadelphia: https://archive.fo/LeZSi

April 16 – Illegal alien raped and murdered woman near Chicago: https://archive.fo/bUZil

April 15 – Illegal alien kidnapped and raped autistic woman in Missouri: https://archive.fo/RuXWs

April 12 – Illegal alien arrested for raping 12-year-old girl In Virginia: https://archive.fo/GLCLa

April 7 – Illegal alien wanted in Florida for exposing himself to children: https://archive.fo/uZCzb

March 29 – Illegal alien caught masturbating in front of store in Texas: https://archive.fo/v2hzS

March 25 – Illegal alien charged with raping and murdering woman in Massachusetts: https://archive.fo/8uhbU

March 17 – Illegal alien strangles woman to death in New Mexico: https://archive.fo/mlBph

March 23 – Illegal alien raped 2-year-old daughter and stabbed two women in News York: https://archive.fo/M1APk

March 16 – Illegal alien brutally raped 14-year-old in Maryland school bathroom: https://archive.fo/CifD2

March 6 – Illegal alien raped and murdered step-daughter who was pregnant with his child: https://archive.fo/fMUgL

March 1 – Illegal alien raped 3-year-old girl in Connecticut: https://archive.fo/43y5t

It’s not like all of this is coming out because the media suddenly has an interest in illegal aliens attacking women and girls. These are all local stories that have been completely ignored by the national press. This is an epidemic that liberals, who would normally react to a war on women with outrage, are pretending doesn’t exist. They are shitty people who think illegal aliens’ “right” to be here is more important than women and children’s right to not be raped and killed.

JUSTICE RETURNS! FBI Arrests Muslims During Female Genital Mutilation Clinic Bust

Three Muslims were charged with performing female genital mutilations on young girls in the Detroit area.

Dr. Fakhruddin Attar, 53, and his wife, Farida Attar, 50, were arrested by federal officers this past week at their medical clinic in Livonia, Michigan, outside of Detroit.

Jumana Nagarwala, a 44-year-old emergency room physician, was also arrested.

All three of them have ties to the Dawoodi Bohra, an Islamic sect which advocates surgically removing the clitoris from girls as young as six to suppress their sexuality.

The practice, however, is internationally recognized as a violation of human rights.

“An increasing number of females in the [Muslim] community worldwide have begun to speak publicly about FGM and the effects it has had on them and their families,” said FBI Special Agent Kevin J. Swanson in his affidavit. “Many describe pain during the procedure and a variety of effect on their physical and mental health later in life.”

The Trump Department of Justice acted swiftly on the case.

“Female genital mutilation constitutes a particularly brutal form of violence against women and girls. It is also a serious federal felony in the United States,” said Acting United States Attorney Daniel Lemisch. “The practice has no place in modern society and those who perform FGM on minors will be held accountable under federal law.”

According to the affidavit, the clinic operated in strict secrecy and operated on girls from neighboring states.

Nagarwala also admitted she knew the practice was illegal in an interview with the FBI.

If the allegations are true, they highlight how an increasing number of radical Muslims are advocating Islamic laws and other related practices in America even if they are illegal or unconstitutional.

Sharia law in particular is a legal system that is derived from the religious precepts of Islam, and it governs Islamic societies both in public and at home.

It’s one of the primary reasons why critics suggest radical Islam is not just a religion, but an ideology that’s not compatible with Western society and US constitutional law.

Sharia law advocates often harp the “supremacy” of Islamic law over “man-made” Western laws, including the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

“The invariable and basic rules of Islamic law are only those prescribed in the Shari’ah,” wrote Khirz Khan, who made headlines during the presidential race as a Democratic poster boy opposed to Donald Trump. “All other juridical works… must always be subordinated to the Shari’ah.”

Globalist Macron Will Allow Islamic Terror To Subjugate And Kill French Civilians

RELATED: >>>/realnews/364

En Marche presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron slammed Marine Le Pen’s proposal to arrest radical Islamists saying it would be counter-productive.

Mr Macron took direct exception to Le Pen’s comments Friday morning when the Front National presidential candidate called for the arrest of all known radical Islamists and the deportation of Islamists without French citizenship Le Figaro reports. Le Pen made the comments after reports that the shooter of three police in Paris Thursday night had been known to police as an Islamic extremist.

“The goal is an intelligence goal,” Macron said. ” If you put them all in jail, first of all, it is not in accordance with the law,” he added, “The goal is to follow them.”

Macron also hit out at comments made by Le Pen earlier this week in which she claimed that under a Le Pen presidency none of the major attacks in the last five years would have happened. “I heard a few days ago Ms Le Pen say ‘with me, there would have been no such attack.’ No, zero risk does not exist, we live and we will live permanently with the threat of Terrorism,” he said.

Overall Macron’s reaction to the terror attack Thursday has been what he’s called a “spirit of responsibility in this extreme period” and described terrorism as, “part of our daily lives for the years to come.”

VA Director Fired Over Overprescription Scandal Seeks Health Care Executive Job

Former Tomah VA director Mario DeSanctis, who was fired from the facility in the wake of the opioid over-prescription scandal, has been looking hard for a health care executive job over the last month.

In a series of posts made on his now-deleted LinkedIn profile, DeSanctis stated that he is “Looking for Healthcare Executive Management Opportunities,” two years after being unceremoniously fired from the Tomah VA from his position as facility director.

In his profile, DeSanctis noted that he has “extensive domestic and international healthcare leadership” and referred to himself as a “visionary leader” with a “record of improving organizational performance and attaining excellence in healthcare compliance by implementing stringent standards and equipping people to achieve success. Consistently attained outstanding results in Joint Commission reviews.”

What DeSanctis did not note in his biography, however, is that he was first removed in March 2015 from his position as facility director and “temporarily reassigned to a position at the Great Lakes Health Care System network office, a position outside the Medical Center.” Additionally, the pressure on the Department of Veterans Affairs was so intense that the agency got rid of him altogether in September that same year, an unusually grave move, given that the VA has in the past gone to great lengths to shield its executives.

In the press release, the VA did not say whether DeSanctis was fired or had quit on his own volition, but Democratic Rep. Ron Kind told the La Crosse Tribune that he was given word that DeSanctis had been “let go.”

DeSanctis had originally become facility director of Tomah in 2012. He presided over the facility at the same time that the infamous chief of staff Dr. David Houlihan, known to veterans as the “Candy Man” distributed incredibly large amounts of opioids to patients.

In one case, which has put the Tomah VA on the map, Marine veteran Jason Simcacoski died on August 30, 2014, from a lethal cocktail of prescription drugs, which the inspector general later confirmed.

The Center for Investigative Reporting noted in February 2015 that DeSanctis had been given a $8,025 bonus on top of his existing $160,000 salary, despite the fact that overprescription of narcotics was endemic at the facility and pharmacist whistleblowers who raised concerns were either fired or quit.

Still, DeSanctis told The Center For Investigative Reporting he believed he earned that bonus.

BAD! Cowardly RINO Traitors Refuse To Cut Taxes, Secure Border, Repeal Obamacare, Etc.

As expected, Trump's America First agenda is being sabotaged by RINO cuckservatives!

RELATED: >>>/badnews/8

Real men (as well as pull-no-punches women) cut taxes. The lesser mortals that tend to inhabit Washington wring their hands and get all weak in the knees when it comes to cutting taxes. Rumors are President Trump will propose a real tax cut. I certainly hope so.

Once upon a time, most Republicans believed in tax cuts. Somewhere along the way, inside the beltway especially, Republicans forgot about the benefits of cutting taxes. Republicans became more concerned with government keeping “its” revenue than letting the people keep their money.

Too many Republican have become timid about tax cuts, often spouting the milquetoast line of “revenue neutral tax cuts.”

Let me translate that little bit of Washington-speak for you. “Revenue neutral” tax cuts aren’t really tax cuts. It’s more like tax shifting. Some will pay more. Some will pay less. And the net effect will be that government will collect the same amount of taxes.

If revenue neutral tax shifting is what Republicans stand for, maybe it’s time we re-evaluated what we really stand for.

What will “revenue neutral” tax cut mean to your business? Well, that may depend on how expensive your lobbyist is. Which side of the “revenue-neutral” ledger you wind up on may depend on how well the skids are greased, hardly, a pleasant scenario to anticipate.

I believe as John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan did, that the best way to stimulate our economy, promote job growth, and give our ailing middle class a raise is to cut taxes for all.

I know Donald Trump believes this too, because he said so often during the campaign, and as a job creator himself, he knows that lower taxes and less regulation are the keys to more jobs.

This week, we are expected to hear the beginnings of the Trump Tax Reform plan. I, for one, urge the President to stick to his guns and not to preemptively surrender to the establishment in Congress and to offer real, meaningful cuts to individuals and businesses, across all income levels.

It is likely the single most important thing he will do in his first year in office to determine our economic growth over the next several years. Our economy has grown at an anemic two percent average over the last 15 years. Historically, it has been nearly double that. We have lost more than three TRILLION dollars in GDP to this anemic growth, according to economist Stephen Moore.

We cannot allow this to continue, so I urge the President to go big and bold.

White-power groups banding together, but for how long?

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — White extremists, almost by nature, are seldom good at working together.

Creating consensus among white nationalists, neo-Nazis, Ku Klux Klansmen and the like is akin to herding rattlesnakes, given the caustic personalities often involved. Members typically get mad at each other and split, sometimes within days, resulting in the near-constant creation of new groups and a churning of both leaders and followers.

That's why it's something of a feat that an alliance of white-power groups born in a KKK bar in Georgia is marking its first birthday this month. Composed of multiple extremist groups, the Nationalist Front had its anniversary Saturday.

Similarly, six Klan organizations from around the country announced a consolidation last month.

The common goal, as these alliances see it, is protecting the white race at a time when the Census Bureau projects whites will be a minority within three decades.

Watchdog groups that track hate organizations aren't impressed. They say the Nationalist Front now lists 11 member groups, about half the number it had when it was formed.

"These things never last," said Heidi Beirich, director of the hate-monitoring Intelligence Project at the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Beirich said that while white supremacists have been emboldened by President Donald Trump's election, such groups have been trying on and off for decades to merge, generally to appear larger than they really are.

But leaders say there's a difference this time: A spokesman for the Nationalist Front, Matthew Heimbach, said U.S. nationalists are trying to follow the example of far-right European groups that have learned to work together rather than bicker over ideology, theology and organizational structure.

U.S. nationalist groups have cooperated on projects such as video presentations and propaganda strategies over the last year, Heimbach said, and they worked together to support white nationalist Richard Spencer when he spoke at Auburn University earlier this month.

Originally called the Aryan National Alliance, the Nationalist Front renamed itself and dropped its use of the swastika in an attempt to broaden its appeal.

Some robe-wearing KKK members who were initially part of the Nationalist Front dropped out, and some Klan groups are now consolidating to build membership and power.

The American Alliance of Klans formed during a meeting in rural Florida in March. More Klan groups have joined since, leaders say.

Tom Larson of Delaware, imperial wizard of the East Coast Knights of the KKK, a part of the new alliance, said: "We want to see people stand up and make this country great again, like Trump is saying. We're tired of seeing white people lose everything."

None of these groups will provide membership numbers, but it's safe to say none is huge. About 100 people have registered to attend a Nationalist Front gathering this weekend in Pikeville, Kentucky, Heimbach said.

Photos from the meeting where the Klan alliance was formed showed about two dozen people in KKK robes and black uniforms giving the Nazi salute, but organizers said that was only leaders and doesn't represent total membership.

Both the Nationalist Front and the Alliance of Klans are but shadow of the United Klans of America, an Alabama-based group that claimed membership in the thousands in the 1960s and was blamed for the 1963 Birmingham church bombing that killed four black girls. It was disbanded in 1987 after the Klan murder of a black man resulted in criminal convictions and a lawsuit that bankrupted the group.

The SPLC's Beirich said she is less worried about new supremacist alliances than free-standing extremist entities like The Daily Stormer, which she describes as an anti-Semitic, misogynistic, racist website that entered the real world last year by forming "book clubs" that hold local meetings.

Beirich said a single hate-based website can reach millions.

Good! While RINO Congress Stalls, Real Conservatives Scoring Big Wins At State Level

As Congress returns from recess, we hold out hope that they will make better use of this session than the last one and work to fulfill their campaign promises. But even while politicians in the House and Senate were away from Washington this week, state legislatures remained active.

All across the nation, conservative grassroots activists are pushing for laws that will limit the size and scope of the government, increase individual liberty and restore constitutionally-guaranteed rights. And they've had some remarkable successes in the past several weeks.

In Arizona, grassroots pushed to protect crucial civil and economic liberties. Although designed to target organized crime like drug cartels, civil asset forfeiture laws permitted police officers and prosecutors to seize property and money on the mere suspicion of a crime. This deprives citizens — who may never be arrested, charged, or convicted of a crime — of both their right to property and their right to due process, putting far too much power in the hands of lawyers and law enforcement.

Grassroots activists made their voices heard, making more than 9,000 contacts with officials. Gov. Doug Ducey, R-Ariz., signed the bill that makes seizing property more difficult and raises the standard for prosecutors by requiring "clear and convincing evidence" that property was used in a criminal activity.

Although centrist and liberal Republicans in Washington have flipped on their promises to protect the right of individuals to control their own healthcare, Iowa has made massive strides towards this key goal. "Right to try" legislation has passed in both chambers and is due to appear on Republican Gov. Terry Branstad's desk, thanks to the relentless work of state-level activists.

The legislation permits terminally-ill patients who can't get into clinical trials of drugs, after consulting with their doctor, to try drugs that have passed Phase I of FDA standards but have not yet been fully approved. To protect caregivers and insurance companies, the bill also allows hospice and insurance to refuse care and coverage to the patient after they have decided to take the drugs.

In Kentucky, conservative grassroots sent 4,000 messages to state legislators to support the criminal justice reform legislation SB 120. The bill passed through the House and the Senate and was just signed into law by Republican Gov. Matt Bevin. It makes significant reforms to improve Kentucky's criminal justice system, including permitting convicts to work minimum-wage jobs while in prison, letting them study for an occupational license, and making the process of obtaining these licenses fairer after release.

In addition to helping the currently incarcerated, the law also supports those who might be on their way to prison and those who have been released. It prevents law enforcement from imprisoning poor individuals because they cannot afford to pay their fines or court costs. It allows those on parole to lower their time by earning credits through good behavior. And it also creates substance-abuse and re-entry programs for those on parole and the formerly-incarcerated.

The combined impact of these reforms will reduce the amount of money taxpayers spend on corrections and increase public safety by incentivizing drug treatment and good behavior on the part of the formerly-incarcerated.

Hillary And CIA Colluded With Foreign Spies In Attempt To Defeat Trump

RELATED: >>>/realnews/1873 (https://archive.fo/C7SDj)

An investigation by London’s leftwing Guardian last week accidentally proved that Obama’s CIA Director John Brennan was behind a campaign of political espionage, organized with Hillary Clinton’s campaign, designed to defeat Donald Trump: https://archive.fo/ITrnj

One side did collude with foreign powers to tip the election — Hillary’s.

Seeking to retain his position as CIA director under Hillary, Brennan teamed up with British spies and Estonian spies to cripple Trump’s candidacy. He used their phony intelligence as a pretext for a multi-agency investigation into Trump, which led the FBI to probe a computer server connected to Trump Tower. This gave cover to Susan Rice, among other Hillary supporters, to spy on Trump and his people.

It was the dirtiest political campaign in living memory, and it all began with Brennan.

American Spectator reports: https://archive.fo/8kcEf

John Brennan’s CIA operated like a branch office of the Hillary campaign, leaking out mentions of this bogus investigation to the press in the hopes of inflicting maximum political damage on Trump. An official in the intelligence community tells TAS that Brennan’s retinue of political radicals didn’t even bother to hide their activism, decorating offices with “Hillary for president cups” and other campaign paraphernalia.

A supporter of the American Communist Party at the height of the Cold War, Brennan brought into the CIA a raft of subversives and gave them plum positions from which to gather and leak political espionage on Trump. He bastardized standards so that these left-wing activists could burrow in and take career positions. Under the patina of that phony professionalism, they could then present their politicized judgments as “non-partisan.”

The Guardian story is written in a style designed to flatter its sources (they are cast as high-minded whistleblowers), but the upshot of it is devastating for them, nonetheless, and explains why all the criminal leaks against Trump first originated in the British press. According to the story, Brennan got his anti-Trump tips primarily from British spies but also Estonian spies and others. The story confirms that the seed of the espionage into Trump was planted by Estonia. The BBC’s Paul Wood reported last year that the intelligence agency of an unnamed Baltic State had tipped Brennan off in April 2016 to a conversation purporting to show that the Kremlin was funneling cash into the Trump campaign.

Any other CIA director would have disregarded such a flaky tip, recognizing that Estonia was eager to see Trump lose (its officials had bought into Hillary’s propaganda that Trump was going to pull out of NATO and leave Baltic countries exposed to Putin). But Brennan opportunistically seized on it, as he later that summer seized on the half-baked intelligence of British spy agencies (also full of officials who wanted to see Trump lose).

The Guardian says that British spy head Robert Hannigan “passed material in summer 2016 to the CIA chief, John Brennan.” To ensure that these flaky tips leaked out, Brennan disseminated them on Capitol Hill. In August and September of 2016, he gave briefings to the “Gang of Eight” about them, which then turned up on the front page of the New York Times.

All of this took place at the very moment Brennan was auditioning for Hillary. He desperately wanted to keep his job and despised Trump for his alleged “Muslim ban,” a matter near and dear to Brennan’s heart. Not only was he an apologist for the Muslim Brotherhood, but Brennan’s Islamophilia dated to his days in college, when he spent a year in Cairo learning Arabic and taking courses in Middle Eastern studies. He later got a graduate degree with an emphasis in Middle Eastern studies. In 1996, his ties to the Islamic world tightened after he became the CIA’s station chief in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. He once recalled that “during a 25-year career in government, I was privileged to serve in positions across the Middle East — as a political officer with the State Department and as a CIA station chief in Saudi Arabia. In Saudi Arabia, I saw how our Saudi partners fulfilled their duty as custodians of the two holy mosques of Mecca and Medina. I marveled at the majesty of the Hajj and the devotion of those who fulfilled their duty as Muslims by making that privilege — that pilgrimage.”

Out of this Islamophilia came a special dislike of Michael Flynn, who had planned to rip up the Obama-era “reset” with Muslim countries. Furious with Flynn for his apostasy from political correctness, Brennan and other Obama aides couldn’t resist the temptation to take him out after rifling through transcripts of his calls with the Russian ambassador. They caught him in a lie to Mike Pence and made sure the press knew about it.

Researchers Create Artificial Womb to Improve Care for Extremely Premature Babies

WASHINGTON (AP) — Researchers are creating an artificial womb to improve care for extremely premature babies — and animal testing suggests the first-of-its-kind watery incubation so closely mimics mom that it just might work.

Children's Hospital of Philadelphia aims to give the tiniest preemies a few more weeks cocooned in a womb-like environment so their lungs have more time to develop. It's a gentler solution than today's standard incubators, where babies weighing as little as a pound are hooked to ventilators.

The researchers created a fluid-filled container simulating the amniotic fluid in mom's uterus, and attached a mechanical placenta that keeps blood oxygenated.

In first-stage testing, extremely premature lambs grew apparently normally inside the system for three to four weeks. Human testing still is several years away.

The study was in Nature Communications.

Ron Paul Rages At Trump: "Assange Is A Hero... Don't Declare War On The Truth"

Candidate Trump: "I Love Wikileaks."

President Trump: "Arrest Assange!"

“I love Wikileaks,” candidate Donald Trump said on October 10th on the campaign trail. He praised the organization for reporting on the darker side of the Hillary Clinton campaign. It was information likely leaked by a whistleblower from within the Clinton campaign to Wikileaks.

Back then he praised Wikileaks for promoting transparency, but candidate Trump looks less like President Trump every day. The candidate praised whistleblowers and Wikileaks often on the campaign trail. In fact, candidate Trump loved Wikileaks so much he mentioned the organization more than 140 times in the final month of the campaign alone! Now, as President, it seems Trump wants Wikileaks founder Julian Assange sent to prison.

Last week CNN reported, citing anonymous “intelligence community” sources, that the Trump Administration’s Justice Department was seeking the arrest of Assange and had found a way to charge the Wikileaks founder for publishing classified information without charging other media outlets such as the New York Times and Washington Post for publishing the same information.

It might have been tempting to write off the CNN report as “fake news,” as is much of their reporting, but for the fact President Trump said in an interview on Friday that issuing an arrest warrant for Julian Assange would be, “OK with me.”

Trump’s condemnation of Wikileaks came just a day after his CIA Director, Michael Pompeo, attacked Wikileaks as a “hostile intelligence service.” Pompeo accused Assange of being “a fraud — a coward hiding behind a screen.”

Pompeo’s word choice was no accident. By accusing Wikileaks of being a “hostile intelligence service” rather than a publisher of information on illegal and abusive government practices leaked by whistleblowers, he signaled that the organization has no First Amendment rights. Like many in Washington, he does not understand that the First Amendment is a limitation on government rather than a granting of rights to citizens. Pompeo was declaring war on Wikileaks.

But not that long ago Pompeo also cited Wikileaks as an important source of information. In July he drew attention to the Wikileaks release of information damaging to the Clinton campaign, writing, “Need further proof that the fix was in from President Obama on down?”

There is a word for this sudden about-face on Wikileaks and the transparency it provides us into the operations of the prominent and powerful: hypocrisy.

The Trump Administration’s declaration of war on whistleblowers and Wikileaks is one of the greatest disappointments in these first 100 days. Donald Trump rode into the White House with promises that he would “drain the swamp,” meaning that he would overturn the apple carts of Washington’s vested interests. By unleashing those same vested interests on those who hold them in check – the whistleblowers and those who publish their revelations – he has turned his back on those who elected him.

Julian Assange, along with the whistleblowers who reveal to us the evil that is being done in our name, are heroes. They deserve our respect and admiration, not a prison cell. If we allow this president to declare war on those who tell the truth, we have only ourselves to blame.

Trade Wars Begin: Trump Announces 20% Tariff On Canadian Softwood Lumber Imports

Speaking during a first of its kind meeting dedicated only to members of the U.S. conservative media, including Breitbart News, OANN and Daily Caller, President Trump told reporters to expect a 20% tariff on softwood lumber coming into Canada.

“We’re going to be putting a 20 per cent tax on softwood lumber coming in — tariff on softwood coming into the United States from Canada,” tweeted Charlie Spiering of Breitbart Media.

According Trey Yingst of OANN Trump explained that “Canada has treated us very unfairly” and also threatened a tax on Canada’s dairy industry.

The WSJ adds that Wilbur Ross said the tariff will be applied retroactively and imposed on Canadian exports to the U.S. of about $5 billion a year. He said the dispute centers on Canadian provinces that have been allegedly allowing loggers to cut down trees at reduced rates and sell them at low prices. "The determination that Canada improperly subsidizes its exports is preliminary, and the Commerce Department will need to make a final decision. In addition, the U.S. International Trade Commission will need to find that the U.S. industry has suffered injury. But even a preliminary decision has immediate real-world consequences, by discouraging importers from buying lumber from Canada."

Or, as a WSJ associated editor put it, "Blame the Chinese, but tax the Canadians:"

We tried to negotiate a settlement but we were unable,” Mr. Ross said, adding that previous administrations have also been unsuccessful in resolving the dispute.

Speaking to the FT, Wilbur Ross said that the US would impose tariffs ranging from 3 per cent to 24% on five Canadian lumber exporters. The Canadian companies are Canfor, J.D. Irving, Resolute FP Canada, Tolko Marketing and Sales and West Fraser Mills.

“This has been another long-standing dispute with Canada,” said Ross. “These duties will be applied retroactively, 90 days backward, because they were on notice that this was forthcoming and they didn’t change the practice of dumping subsidized lumber.”

Ross also told the FT that the Canadian provinces that own the forests from where softwood lumber is sourced were subsidizing logging activities, which allowed Canada to then dump the lumber in the US at below-market prices.

“It is around $5bn a year worth of lumber that comes in this way. And the Canadians have roughly a 31.5 per cent market share of the whole US softwood lumber (market),” Mr Ross added.

The Trump administration had already notified Canada of its intent to impose the tariffs, a measure which comes as Trump approaches his 100th day in office on Saturday and is another example of his intent to take a more protectionist approach to trade policy.

The tariffs have been anticipated since last week when Trump launched a barrage of criticism against Canada’s dairy, energy and lumber sectors. As Global News adds, the expected announcement from the U.S. Commerce Department on countervailing duties, a type of import tax meant to counter a subsidized export, is just the latest in the ongoing Canada-U.S. softwood row, which stretches back to the 1980s.

Previously, President Trump said the Canadian system of protectionist dairy quotas is harming U.S. farmers, and that he’ll press Canada for changes to its dairy system as part of North American Free Trade Agreement talks.

Last week, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said the U.S. has a $400m dairy surplus with Canada adding “it’s not Canada that’s the challenge here.”

The dispute largely stems from the fact most Canadian lumber is harvested on government-owned land while American lumber comes mainly from private land. The American lumber lobby has long accused Canadian governments of allowing companies to cut wood for less than market prices, which they say is an unfair subsidy.

The announcement is also the latest escalation in US trade wars under the new administration, and comes just hours after China warned it would retaliate if the US imposed tariffs on its steel imports.

In separate comments, Breitbart's Charlie Spireling reports that when asked about Assad’s existing stockpile of chemical weapons, Trump responded “Wait and see if he uses them again, OK?"

Trump also discussed the North Korean situations, and said “this should have been done by Obama and it should have been don by every president since, really, Clinton.” Asked about Kim Jong-un’s military capacity, Trump replies: “I’m not so sure he’s so strong like he says he is, I’m not so sure at all.”

Trump to Speak at NRA Forum, First President to Do So Since 1983

President Donald Trump will speak at the National Rifle Association’s annual convention on April 28, becoming the first U.S. president to address the gun-rights group since Ronald Reagan in 1983.

“The NRA is honored to have the president address our annual meeting at the leadership forum,” said Jennifer Baker, a spokeswoman for the NRA. “We’re excited to once again have a president who respects the Second Amendment.”

The NRA endorsed Trump’s bid for president last May, after the then-candidate addressed the group’s annual forum in Louisville, Kentucky. Trump pledged at the time to “save our Second Amendment” and appoint judges which would support expansive gun rights.

His return visit to speak to the group’s 2017 Leadership Forum in Atlanta is likely to appeal to Trump’s base at a time when he has received criticism for reversing himself on promises to his most ardent supporters. At the same time, Trump’s speech to the influential lobby could repel Democrats and moderates who have been chafing under his presidency and have blocked some of his proposals from advancing in Congress.

Despite Bloomberg leaving this fact out of their report, Trump has recently repealed Obama's social security gun ban (https://archive.fo/kxyHs)

His appointment of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court was hailed by the NRA. Gorsuch took the seat vacated by Justice Antonin Scalia (who was murdered last year by the Obama regime after declaring carbon taxation unconstitutional) and was part of a 5-4 majority in the pivotal D.C. v. Heller case. The ruling marked the first time the Supreme Court held that the Second Amendment protected an individual’s right to own a firearm for lawful purposes such as self-defense in the home.

The previous two Republican presidents – George W. Bush and George H.W. Bush – didn’t address the group during their presidencies.

The White House confirmed Trump’s speaking plan, but didn’t offer additional comments.

Pentagon To Protect Electric Grid From Cyber-Attack & EMP Attacks!

RELATED: >>>/realnews/665

Warnings that North Korea and Iran have plans to take out parts of the U.S. electric grid through a cyber-attack or atmospheric nuclear blast has Department of Defence worried. In response, the Pentagon is taking steps to protect both the nation's communications and power lifeline.

BAE Systems have been charged with the responsibility of mapping a system that can detect a cyber-attack by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. The system will also gin up an alternative communications network for military and civilian use if the grid is fried.

Several warning shots have been shot by the former CIA Director James Woolsey who warned that the grid is extremely vulnerable. The Pentagon and some states have taken the warning seriously. The former EMP commission chief of staff Peter Vincent Pry and Woolsey have pointed a finger at North Korea, which is now threatening the U.S.

As DARPA's focuses on thwarting a cyber-attack, Pry and Woolsey have also warned that North Korea or Iran could attack the grid with an atmospheric nuclear explosion over the East Coast that will disable the grid and that could end up leading to the death of 90 percent of those in the East.

The plan presented in Defense Systems by DARPA has several elements that react to attack. The first response is to include ways to sense an imminent attack that would trigger protections. However, if it is damaged, it would have an alternative way for communications killed in the attack to continue in a backup system. That would ensure that financial and military systems continue operating. The system is expected to be ready by 2020.

DARPA released a statement saying that it is specifically interested in early warning of impending attacks, situation awareness, network isolation and threat characterization in response to a widespread and persistent cyber-attack on the power grid and its dependent systems.

The relevant technologies that ought to be taken into consideration include anomaly detection, planning and automated reasoning, mapping of conventional and industrial control systems networks, ad hoc network formation, analysis of industrial control systems protocols, and rapid forensic characterization of cyber threats in industrial control system devices.

The system is known as Rapid Attack Detection, Isolation and Characterization Systems. One of the BAE officials said that the purpose of the program is to provide a technology that quickly isolates both the enterprise IP network and the power infrastructure networks to disrupt malicious attacks imminent from countries such as Iran and North Korea.

Deleted from /suicide/: article about Suzanne Gonzales Suicide Prevention Act

This is what /suicide/ mods don't want their posters to know and discuss. Post deleted, public logs disabled.

Suicide-related information is readily accessible online. Using the internet to read about suicide can provide a beacon of hope, as much of the available content promotes prevention or resources for those in distress. Yet a number of studies have raised concerns about websites that may encourage suicide and self-harm. One site, for instance, advertises itself as "a place where people who are interested in suicide methods come together and discuss about suicide methods."

In a study published in 2008, researchers put phrases related to suicide (e.g., "How to kill yourself") into search engines and examined the first 10 sites from each search. The authors found that about 1 in 5 of these top hits were sites encouraging suicide or describing suicide methods. A more recent study compared the top suicide-related search results from 2007 to 2014, and found the proportion of sites providing factual information about suicide methods had tripled.

Research suggests these websites draw people, particularly youths, who are in distress. In a survey of 1,500 young people living in the United States, browsers who visited pro-suicide sites were 11 times as likely to report thinking about self-harm and seven times as likely to report having suicidal thoughts as were young people who hadn't visited the sites. A 2015 study found that 20 percent of young adults with a history of suicidal self-harm had visited sites containing information on how to kill or hurt oneself, compared with just 3 percent of a young adults more broadly.

What's less clear is the motivation behind these websites: Why would someone encourage others to kill themselves, often providing detailed instructions on how to do so? The relative anonymity of the internet makes this question challenging to study. Some academics have speculated that pro-suicide sites may serve as forums for commiseration, community or even rebellion, but there aren't much data to make firm conclusions.

Ron Paul Tells Trump: Assange Is A Hero, Do Not Send Him To Prison

Ron Paul has issued a blistering response to President Trump’s about-face in regards to Julian Assange and WikiLeaks, labelling the president a “hypocrite” for turning his back on the whistleblowing organization.

Writing in his weekly column at the Ron Paul Institute website, the former Texas Rep. declared that Julian Assange is a hero who deserves our admiration and respect – not a prison cell.

Reminding the president that he publicly announced “I love Wikileaks,” on October 10th on the campaign trail, and that he praised the organization for reporting on the darker side of the Hillary Clinton campaign, Ron Paul urged President Trump to become more like candidate Trump – the man who wanted to drain the swamp.

Good! Donald Trump Threatens To Terminate NAFTA If Not Renegotiated

President Donald Trump again leveled criticism about NAFTA in an interview with the Associated Press, promising to either renegotiate the trade deal or terminate it.

“I am going to either renegotiate it or I am going to terminate it,” he said. “If they don’t treat fairly, I am terminating NAFTA.”

Trump has not softened his campaign rhetoric about the North American Free Trade Act, accusing Mexico and more Canada for hurting the American economy.

“I am very upset with NAFTA, I think NAFTA has been a catastrophic trade deal for the United States,” he said to the AP.

During an America First event in Wisconsin, Trump began criticizing Canada for hurting American dairy farmers, and has repeated his remarks on multiple occasions.

“[I]f you look at the dairy farmers in Wisconsin and upstate New York, they are getting killed by NAFTA,” he said.

Trump said last Thursday that Americans should expect something big on trade “within the next two weeks.”

Nothing To See Here! Clinton's Assistant Johnston Wilson McGill Found Dead

Johnston Wilson McGill, 34, was pronounced dead on his couch by a private doctor after suffering an apparent heart attack. It has happened just days after being summoned to appear before Trey Gowdy’s congressional committee to testify about Hillary Clinton’s email server. McGill was one of Clinton's aides. The death was reported hapanned at her home of “natural causes.”

A spokesman for Clinton’s former campaign said that Huma Abedin, Clinton’s deputy campaign coordinator, found McGill when she stopped by for coffee to discuss Clinton’s plans for a run for Mayor of New York.

Trey Gowdy’s office had no official statement but his top aide, Mandy Gonsales, said that the committee isn’t happy with the circumstances of McGill’s death or the fact that his own doctor was summoned to pronounce. Abedin says she called the private doctor because she hoped he could save her friend.

There will be no autopsy on the body, which will be cremated before sunset in accordance with his religion. McGill is the single son of deceased parents and has no family. No services are planned.

Does this whole thing seem a little bit odd to anyone else? It feels oddly like we’ve seen things like this happen before to people who could possibly incriminate Hillary Clinton. Unfortunately, as the doctor who pronounced has an impeccable record and is an authorized coroner in new York, the findings will be accepted and entered into public record.

The Sun-Climate Connection: Over 133 Papers Link Solar Activity To Climate.

The Sun’s Influence On Climate: ‘Settled’ Science?

In 2014, there were at least 93 peer-reviewed scientific papers published in scientific journals affirming the Sun’s influential role in climate change.

In 2015, there were at least 95 scientific papers affirming the Sun-Climate link.

Already in 2016, there have been over 100 papers (28 January, 2017 – Now updated to 133 papers) published in science journals affirming the link between solar forcing and climate change. The list of papers and brief excerpts (from the abstracts, introductions, and/or conclusions) is provided below.

It has long been claimed that the science is “settled”, that the Sun’s role in climate change is negligible at best.

The Sun no longer causes net global-scale changes in deep ocean heat. Humans do that now. By emitting carbon dioxide, it is claimed that humans have predominantly caused (or will cause) net global-scale changes in precipitation, extreme weather events (hurricanes, tornadoes, droughts, floods…), water vapor, clouds, sea level, and, of course, atmospheric and surface temperatures. According to some interpretations (i.e., NASA’s Gavin Schmidt), the IPCC apparently estimates that the anthropogenic attribution to climate change is essentially 100% (or more), and the Sun’s influence in forcing net changes in the climate system is effectively zero.

Of course, a 0% attribution for solar forcing assumes that we presently know enough already about the Sun and how it influences terrestrial climate change and ocean heat flux. It assumes that we are and have been accurately calculating the response of the climate system to variations in absorbed solar heat energy, and that we are and have been accurately measuring absorbed solar heat energy. It assumes there is little uncertainty and there are no consequential errors in our reconstructions and modeling of solar radiative forcing over time (or recently).

The popularized insistence by advocates that a 100% attribution for anthropogenic climate forcing is “settled” science necessarily implies that skepticism concerning the claim that there is effectively no Sun-Climate link is unwarranted and antagonistically feckless. Those who do dare question the profundity of our present scientific knowledge of the Sun-Climate link deserved to be ridiculed, marginalized, and compared to Holocaust deniers.

Fortunately, there are still some scientists willing to admit that we still don’t know all that much about the Sun’s role in climate change. For example, Dhomse et al. (2016) acknowledge that the Sun’s role in climate change is still “an open scientific question” due to the immense difficulties in accurately quantifying the Sun’s influence.

Dhomse et al., 2016

[T]here are still large [uncertainties] in current observational and meteorological reanalysis datasets, so accurate quantification of the influence of solar flux variability on the climate system remains an open scientific question.

And below, there are literally hundreds of scientists who have dared to continue trying to disentangle the Sun’s role in climate changes — and who have wound up finding robust connections. Perhaps someday the IPCC will consider scientific papers like these in their reports rather than continue to operate on the presupposition that our scientific knowledge of the Sun’s role in climate change is not only substantial, but sufficient.

Former Obama Official Admits Bureaucrats Manipulate Climate Stats To Influence Policy

RELATED: >>>/rationalnews/37 (https://archive.fo/IkF5Q)

A former member of the Obama administration claims Washington D.C. often uses “misleading” news releases about climate data to influence public opinion.

Former Energy Department Undersecretary Steven Koonin told The Wall Street Journal Monday that bureaucrats within former President Barack Obama’s administration spun scientific data to manipulate public opinion.

“What you saw coming out of the press releases about climate data, climate analysis, was, I’d say, misleading, sometimes just wrong,” Koonin said, referring to elements within the Obama administration he said were responsible for manipulating climate data.

He pointed to a National Climate Assessment in 2014 showing hurricane activity has increased from 1980 as an illustration of how federal agencies fudged climate data. Koonin said the NCA’s assessment was technically incorrect.

“What they forgot to tell you, and you don’t know until you read all the way into the fine print is that it actually decreased in the decades before that,” he said. The U.N. published reports in 2014 essentially mirroring Koonin’s argument.

The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change reported there “is limited evidence of changes in extremes associated with other climate variables since the mid-20th century” and current data shows “no significant observed trends in global tropical cyclone frequency over the past century.”

Press officers work with scientists within agencies like the National Oceanic Administration (NOAA) and NASA and are responsible for crafting misleading press releases on climate, he added.

Koonin is not the only one claiming wrongdoing. House lawmakers with the Committee on Science, Space and Technology, for instance, recently jumpstarted an investigation into NOAA after a whistleblower said agency scientists rushed a landmark global warming study to influence policymakers.

Texas Republican Rep. Lamar Smith, the committee’s chairman, will “move forward as soon as possible” in asking NOAA to hand over documents included in a 2015 subpoena on potential climate data tampering.

Koonin, who served under Obama from 2009 to 2011, went on to lament the politicization of science suggested that the ethos should be to “tell it like it is. You’re a scientist and it is your responsibility to put the facts on the table.”

NASA and NOAA’s actions, he said, are problematic, because “public opinion is formed by the data that is formed from those organizations and appears in newspapers.”

JUSTICE RETURNS! US Navy SEAL Arrested In Huge Pedophile Bust

A US Navy SEAL has been charged with rape, sexual abuse and possession of child pornography as part of a huge pedophile bust by authorities.

According to charges filed in a Virginia federal court, a Navy SEAL based in southern California filmed himself abusing a young girl and raping a woman after they both passed out on his bed.

Sputniknews.com reports: https://archive.fo/wkTGW

Petty Officer 1st Class Gregory Kyle Seerden, of the Navy’s SEAL Team One, was arrested in San Diego earlier this month after investigators with the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) discovered evidence of child pornography on Seerden’s phone in the process of investigating his rape of a 27-year-old woman, as reported by the Los Angeles Times.

Seerden is accused of raping the woman after she fell asleep while the two were drinking alcohol at his hotel room in a Norfolk, Virginia, military base.

He is also accused of being in possession of an undetermined number of child pornogaphy images, as well as video-recording himself sexually molesting a girl, whose age was not disclosed by NCIS, while she was asleep.

If convicted, Seerden faces a mandatory 15-year prison sentence for his activities.

Alongside the notorious online network of US Marine service members sharing and hosting illicit photographs and personal information of female members of the force, often without their consent or knowledge, and the outing of a decorated Navy SEAL who was working as a pornographic film star to make ends meet, the US military’s branded image has been battered recently by two other incidents of note, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Just last month Virginia-based SEAL Chief Special Warfare Operator Stephen Varanko III was found guilty of sexual harassment and battery by a US military tribunal, and, last summer, SEAL Petty Officer 2nd Class Theo Andrew Krah, stationed in San Diego, was arrested after beating and stabbing to death a man, following a fight on the Santa Monica Pier in Los Angeles.

JUSTICE RETURNS! Pedophile Sex Slave Ring Busted in Minnesota, Dozens Arrested

A pedophile sex slave ring has been busted in Minnesota. The prosecution revealed that three Muslim gangs called the Somali Outlaws, the Somali Mafia and the Lady Outlaws were forcing teenage girls into prostitution and operated in St. Paul, Minneapolis; Columbus, and Nashville.

More than two dozen defendants are involved in a federal trial, they are accused of involvement in a sex trafficking ring run by Somali Muslim gangs. The case is being complicated by cultural issues within the Somali Muslim refugee communities in Minnesota and Tennessee. Defense attorneys argued that the defendants, many of whom are refugees from Somalia, were juveniles at the time the alleged crimes occurred.

The trial was delayed last week when prosecutors turned over thousands of documents and audio recordings from the investigation to defense attorneys on the eve of trial. This was after the trial selected a jury. Both defense attorneys and federal prosecutors have repeatedly declined to comment about the case.

The prosecution was originally unsealed in 2010 and amended by a superseding indictment in 2011, says the defendants, many of them from the Somali Muslim immigrant communities in Minneapolis and Nashville, were members or associates of the three gangs. Four unidentified victims, some of who were under the age of 14, are listed in the indictment.

The gangs are accused of finding and recruiting young girls for the purpose of prostitution in exchange for money and drugs, of the 30 individuals listed in the indictment, only 14 are going to trial this month in Nashville on charges of conspiracy to commit sexual trafficking of children by force, fraud or coercion and charges related to the sexual trafficking. Many of the individuals have remained in federal custody since their arrests.

Jane Doe has been working with Smith in the case, Doe said testifying against other Somali Muslims will be very difficult for the victim, but she wants to have her voice heard. Smith reported that Jane Doe wants to have her story known and she wants to speak in public.

Majority, but not all the defendants, are described as refugees who came to the United States as young children. The police have relied on immigration paperwork to determine their ages, but defense attorneys have argued in court that information in those documents are routinely incorrect due to cultural and language issues. The courts in Minnesota, have seen similar issues in cases where defendants or victims are Somali Muslims.

Netanyahu praises 'great change' in US foreign policy under Trump

Netanyahu welcomes the more aggressive foreign policy stance taken by President Trump

during a meeting with Israeli Deputy Defense Secretary James 'Mad Mutt' Mattis in Jerusalem.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Friday welcomed the more aggressive foreign policy stance taken by President Trump, and said that change from President Obama's position is greatly "appreciated" by Israel.

"We sense a great change in the direction of American policy," Netanyahu said in a joint press appearance with Defense Secretary James Mattis.

"We noted the very clear and forthright words, Mr. Secretary, that you had to say about Iran," Netanyahu said. "This follows very strong and forthright words on the part of President Trump, and very forthright deeds against the use of chemical weapons by Iran's proxy, Syria."

"This has been appreciated around the world and in our region," Netanyahu said. "I think this is welcome change, a strategic change of American leadership and American policy."

Trump's decision to bomb Syrian assets after Syria used chemical weapons against its own people was seen by Republicans and even many Democrats a long-over due step, and one that enforced President Obama's "red line" that he never enforced himself.

Mattis warned in a separate appearance on Friday that there is "no doubt" Syria still has chemical weapons.

Trump Is ‘Learning the Job’

Thursday on Newsmax TV discussing President Donald Trump’s positions on NATO and China, which some have argued is a departure from his campaign messaging, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said, “I think he’s learning the job.”

McConnell said, “I think President Trump is learning the job and some of the things that were said during the campaign I think he now knows that’s simply not the way things ought to be.”

He continued, “There is nothing wrong with the president. In fact, I welcome adjustments that he makes from the campaign. A lot of things are said in the campaign by candidates that turn out to be not the way it works when you are actually in office.”

He added, “I can’t think of a single candidate who hasn’t changed their mind once being elected president.”

The Vaccine Industry Defends The Use of Chemical Weapons on US Children

RELATED: >>>/n/531375

By now, you are surely aware that the U.S. war machine, under President Donald J. Trump, has launched cruise missiles against the Syrian government. The emotionally-charged justification for all this is that “beautiful babies” were being killed by chemical weapons. While the pro-war factions of the establishment elite are celebrating the missile strike, virtually the entire independent media is convinced that the “chemical attack” narrative is little more than a convenient false flag to justify “regime replacement” activities desired by America’s deep state. Even Ron Paul and Paul Craig Roberts have both asserted this.

President Trump’s explanation for the attack included these words:

Assad choked out the lives of innocent men, women and children. It was a slow and brutal death for so many. Even beautiful babies were cruelly murdered in this very barbaric attack. No child of god should ever suffer such horror.

If you replace the word “Assad” with “CDC” or “the vaccine industry,” it all makes even more sense. Vastly higher numbers of children right here in America have been “cruelly murdered” in the “barbaric attack” of toxic vaccines than have ever been killed by chemical weapons in Syria.

I agree with the President that “No child of God should ever suffer such horror,” but I wonder when this President will start working to stop the chemical assault on America’s children that’s being waged every day by the vaccine industry.

No chemical weapon should ever be deployed against any child: Not VX Nerve Gas, not Sarin Gas and not toxic, brain-damaging mercury. The destruction of biological tissue with devastating effect is accomplished by all three of those substances (and many more, including glyphosate herbicide). Yet mercury is the only chemical weapon that’s deliberately INJECTED into children with devastating effect. You might even call mercury a “biological cruise missile” attack on brain tissue.

On the science side, there’s no question whatsoever that mercury is extremely toxic to human neurology. Even the CDC’s own research has conclusively proven that mercury in vaccines is toxic to children. As I wrote in a Natural News article earlier this year, entitled Health Ranger exposes chemical violence of mercury vaccines: The “war on children” must be stopped:

The CDC is a criminal operation that preys upon innocent children using fraudulent science. The “Vaccine Holocaust,” as it is sometimes called, is a deliberate and widespread assault on children using chemical violence. This war on children must be brought to an end in the name of compassion, sanity and legitimate science (not the fraudulent corporate science pushed by vaccine companies and the corrupt CDC).

Right now, mercury is still used in vaccines given to children and expectant mothers in the United States. This practice is barbaric, highly unethical and stands in horrific opposition to all the known science on the neurotoxicity of mercury. Those engaged in the continued pushing of mercury vaccines onto children are knowingly taking part in the most gruesome and dishonest medical science cover-up in the history of our world. It is time that parents, citizens, independent scientists and compassionate protectors of life took a stand against the child poisoners who are pushing mercury vaccines that cause permanent neurological disorders in children (including autism in some children).

If Assad is evil for using chemical weapons against Syrian children, why is the CDC not evil for using state-sponsored chemical weapons against America’s children?

The CDC has already confirmed that vaccines given to children in America are deliberately manufactured with numerous brain-damaging ingredients, including aluminum, mercury, monosodium glutamate and formaldehyde. In addition, vaccine excipients that may cause permanent brain damage through a heightened inflammatory response include squalene, a chemical that’s already causing a rapid rise in extremely dangerous peanut allergies among America’s children.

Popular TV propaganda pushers like Jimmy Kimmel openly make fun of those who want to save children from toxic vaccine “chemical weapons” ingredients. He might as well just be making fun of the children in Syria who are damaged by chemical weapons.

13 White Athletes Arrested For Homosexual Hazing That Involved Sodomizing At Least 10 Underclassmen

http://www.breakingnewstime.com/thirteen-male-athletes-are-arrested-at-texas-high-school-for-sadistic-hazing-that-involved-raping-at-least-10-underclassmen-with-coke-bottles-and-flashlights/

Thirteen male athletes have been arrested at a Texas high school for what is being characterized as a sadistic hazing ritual where they savagely anally raped at least 10 underclassmen with various objects.

The small town of La Vernia, Texas, has been rocked by a major homosexual assault case where nearly a dozen student athletes are accused of raping other students as a sports initiation practice, according to police.

Three members of the basketball team at La Vernia High School, Colton Weidner, 18; Christian Roberts, 18; and John Rutkowski, 18, were arrested on a charge of second-degree felony sexual assault on Tuesday.

This brings the total number of men arrested to 13, as six adult and seven juvenile students have been accused of the sexual assault where they savagely raped at least 10 other male students with Gatorade and Coke bottles, flashlights and the threaded end of a carbon dioxide tank, according to police.

Weidner, Roberts, Rutkowski and an unnamed minor were involved in an incident where a 15-year-old was sodomized by the basketball players with a flashlight in February, reported the San Antonio Express.

Other students involved in the large investigation are football players Alejandro ‘Alex’ Ibarra, 18; Dustin Norman, 18; and Robert Olivarez Jr., 17, who savagely sodomized a 16-year-old teammate with the threaded end of a carbon dioxide tank to initiate the minor into the varsity team, according to police.

They were arrested in late March.

The Texas Rangers took over the case on April 3 to ensure impartially as most of the suspects and victims involved in the case know the local law enforcement agents in the 1,200 person town.

A federal lawsuit was filed on Tuesday and alleges that coaches and officials at the high school ‘turned a blind eye toward the abuse’ and allowed the ritual to continue even after the abuse was reported, the lawsuit claims.

In the suit, the victim, identified as Child Doe, claims to have been homosexually assaulted when he was 15 years old and had just been bumped up from the junior varsity team to the varsity football team, when he was told to ‘get ready’ by upperclassman teammates.

A short time afterwards, three older students forced him to the ground and forced a Gatorade bottle inside his anus over his shorts inside the locker room.

Throughout the academic school year of 2015-2016, the victim claims he was harassed and bullied multiple times by the upperclassman on the football team.

The following year, the minor also claims to have been homosexually assaulted by senior members of the varsity team, this time with a cardboard tube from a coat hanger.

Local police have said that the hazing included members from the school’s football, baseball and basketball programs and could have started in the 2014-2015 school year.

La Vernia police Chief Bruce Ritchey confirmed in March that the hazing primarily involved the football team at the school, and the basketball and baseball teams were involved to a lesser degree.

The horrific stories emerged after one child told police they were homosexually assaulted in the boys’ bathroom of the school, a parent told Fox San Antonio.

His admission led to two others coming forward, the parent, who did not want to be identified, said.

‘I’m frustrated,’ the parent added. ‘If these things are going on in the school, how do I know my child is safe going there?’

One mother told Fox San Antonio that a gang of boys held down her son and other victims, and forced foreign objects into their rectums.

She said she only became aware of the harm done to her boy when he told her he did not want to attend football practice.

She added: ‘Kids were holding them down in the locker rooms, there was a lookout at the door watching for coaches not to come.

‘They hold them down and stick various items up their rectum… including coke bottles, deodorant bottles, steel pipes, baseball bats and broomsticks.’

Why Did NFL Star Hernandez Murder Three People? Because He Was a DEGENERATE QUEER!

On April 19, sometime before 3 a.m., Aaron Hernandez, the former star New England Patriots tight end, scrawled three notes—one to his fiancée, the mother of his little girl, one to that daughter and a third to his close prison friend—and placed them next to a Bible in his solitary prison cell in the Souza Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley, Massachusetts.

The Bible was opened to a section of the New Testament, John 3:16, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that whosoever believes in him would not perish but have eternal life.” He had scrawled that verse on his forehead with red ink, and also made marks on his hands and feet with that red pen, as though mimicking the stigmata associated with the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.

Then the 27-year-old former NFL star serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole for murder, jammed the track of his cell door with cardboard to prevent guards from coming in, slicked the floor with liquid soap and shampoo (which investigators believe he did to make it harder for him to back out in case he lost his nerve), wrapped his bed sheet around his neck multiple times and then tied one end of it to a bar on the window of his cell.

A correction officer saw his limp body through the cell door at 3:03 a.m., and tried to resuscitate him. Hernandez was then rushed to UMass Leominster hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 4:07 a.m.

It was an ugly end to the former NFL star’s often ugly life and it came on the same day players on his former team traveled to the White House to celebrate the New England Patriot’s Super Bowl win. Questions immediately began to swirl about why Hernandez, who had been acquitted five days earlier in connection with a separate double murder charge stemming from a drive-by shooting in 2012, picked this time to die.

That’s just one of many mysteries Hernandez, known for never shedding the gang connections he made growing up, left behind. He was convicted in April 2015 for shooting and killing his friend, Odin Lloyd, seemingly without motive. But interviews with multiple law enforcement officials directly involved in the case say Lloyd—a semipro football player who was dating Hernandez’s fiance’s sister at the time—had information the football star did not want out: that he was bisexual.

Motivation to Murder?

One of the notes left by Hernandez was to his prison boyfriend, who is now on 24/7 suicide watch, multiple law enforcement sources confirm. Hernandez’s sexuality would, of course, not be relevant save for the fact that an intimate relationship he allegedly had with a male former high school classmate was at the center of the investigation into Lloyd’s murder.

Ernest Wallace, a co-defendant in the Lloyd murder case, told detectives the victim had called Hernandez a “schmoocher,” which was taken by Hernandez and his companions as a gay slur. Wallace was also recorded saying during a jailhouse visit with Tanya Singleton, Hernandez’s cousin, that he would not have helped Hernandez get rid of the murder weapon—a crime for which he is now serving a 4½-to-7 year sentence on accessory to murder charges—if he had known Hernandez was a “limp wrist,” multiple sources say. Singleton was accused of helping Wallace discard of Lloyd’s murder weapon and was later sentenced to two years probation with one year under house confinement after pleading guilty to criminal contempt for refusing to cooperate with investigators in Boston investigating the double murder. Prosecutors in both Bristol and Suffolk counties said Hernandez had promised to set up a trust fund for Singleton’s children for her silence but never did.

There is Literally a 'Shit Museum' in Italy

Enter the “Shit Museum,” or Museo Della Merda, a literal research facility-cum-poo-repository that converts lumps of pungent cow dung into pottery and luminescent science projects, located in a rural stretch of northern Italy 62 miles outside Milan.

Established in 2015 inside a medieval castle, the Shit Museum makes positive use of the manure surplus produced by killcen on founder Gianantonio Locatelli's image board, which also supplies 55 tons of salt a day to the Grana Padano cheese company. Ironically, Locatelli salvages all the waste for various projects – his farm extracts methane to produce electricity, which is then sold alongside the museum’s signature brand of fertilizer – but nothing quite matches his famed “Merdacotta” artifacts, which are elegantly assembled from repurposed shitposts.

Anti-American Thugs Threaten To Kidnap Children From Parents Over "Conspiracy Theories"

The government is not coming after you officials claim… but if you dare insinuate it, they threatened to come after you and your family!

Police in Texas have warned parents that teaching children conspiracy theories could result in them having their kids taken away by Child Protective Services.

In a startling claim by police in Williamson County, parents could be deemed “unsuitable” if they dare teach their offspring that the “government is out to harm them.”

According to leaked files by Child Protective Services, an Austin-based couple were told that their children would be taken from them due to their subversive "anti-government" views.

Blacklistednews.com reports: https://archive.fo/elAsu

The allegation was made against drug reform activist filmmakers Barry and Candi Cooper, whose home was recently raided and searched after the Williamson County Sheriff’s Department claimed Barry’s voice was heard in the background audio of an allegedly false police report.

Once in the couple’s home, officers discovered a small amount of marijuana and charged the Coopers with Class B misdemeanors, resulting in both their arrests. Each immediately bonded out of jail and paid a small fine. Days later, while Candi’s youngest son was visiting his father in east Texas, Child Protective Services contacted the Coopers, revealing that the incident could cost them not only custody of the boy, but also their freedom on felony child endangerment charges.

After CPS interviewed the couple, Travis County Deputy District Attorney Dayna Blazey pronounced both Coopers to be fit parents, whose children are healthy, happy and “well cared for.”

“[There] is nothing to indicate that the kids are at risk,” she wrote.

A message requesting the deputy DA’s comment on this story went unanswered at time of publication.

Her conclusion, which falls at the end of documents published below, is almost odd following the numerous pages of text entered by police, who seemingly describe an alternate reality.

Among their claims — that Barry and Candi regularly give illicit drugs to their children, that they allow and encourage other kids to use drugs in their home, that they’ve mentally abused their children by telling them that marijuana is good and anti-drug efforts are riddled with lies — the most extreme is that the Coopers are “unsuitable” parents because they create an environment in which the children learn their “government is out to harm them.”

The allegation is found atop page five of the CPS report.

In another completely dumbfounding, ironic entry, Sgt. Gary Haston of the Williamson County Sheriff’s Department — the officer whose testimony appears on the original search warrant affidavit — actually claims he observed the children “crying for no reason” as armed officers invaded their home.

In a court hearing Tuesday, the Coopers were unsuccessful in re-obtaining custody of Zachary, Candi’s seven-year-old who is currently under the care of his father in Upshur County, Texas. The court did not issue a ruling, as matters of geographic limitations have yet to be addressed. Barry and Candi are seeking to have the custody battle in Travis County, but it’s still a matter of dispute. Lawyers for the Coopers and Zachary Johnston’s father brokered limited visitation rights for Candi, but Barry is required to stay away from the boy for the time being.

Because of the nature of Texas’ drug laws and their status as nationally-known political activists, the Coopers are facing the very real possibility of losing Zach entirely, with future contact only allowed in the context of supervised visitation.

“I just don’t know what I’ll do if we lose Zach,” Barry said. “That would be the most horrible thing to ever happen to me in my entire life.”

Trump Delivers Bizarre Weekly Address Praising Jews and Israel

Trump Delivers Bizarre Weekly Address Praising Jews and Israel

His latest "600D Chess" Move

What a bizarre video this is. At first you might think you are watching a hostage video but this is actually the President’s weekly address. Very poor production quality for something coming from the White House.

Trump opens the video by praising the Jews and talking about Passover. This is the Jewish holiday that celebrates murder. He goes on to falsely claim that Jews have been unfairly persecuted throughout history and that they have brought light to the world. Total lies to anybody who knows anything about history. Jews have only brought darkness and death into the world.

The address was nothing but kikery and cuckery. The fact that he leads his address talking about Jews, Passover and Israel is either a cry for help or a slap in the face to his political base. Take your pick. It is also worth noting that his delivery in this video is very robotic and low energy. He looks like someone who has a gun pointed at him while he reads off the teleprompter. This is far different than many of his previous addresses where he seems to be acting like his normal self.

It’s clear that Trump is no longer the man he once was. The Jewish media establishment went from non stop Trump bashing to accepting him as President over night. All it took was for him to order a barrage of cruise missile strikes against a Syrian military base. We must not get discouraged by this development. Attaching our political agenda to Trump was the only pragmatic political move for us. We all knew about his Jewish connections but with Trump there was at least a chance things could get moved in a proper direction. There was zero chance with every other candidate.

Married Couple Fucks Long and Hard to Have Baby, Can't Conceive, Learn They Are BIOLOGICAL TWINS

A doctor at a fertility clinic in the Mississippi capital of Jackson has made a startling revelation concerning a couple who sought treatment at the center. The married pair, who cannot be named to due to patient confidentiality restrictions, had been struggling to conceive and came to the clinic to take part in the IVF program.

“During the in vitro fertilization process, we take a DNA sample from both the male and female to get a profile of their genetic backgrounds,” the doctor involved told Mississippi Herald, whose name must also be suppressed to protect the identities of the patients.

“It’s just a routine thing, and we wouldn’t normally check to see if there was a relationship between the two samples, but in this case the lab assistant involved was shocked by the similarity of each profile.” The lab assistant summoned the doctor, who knew almost instantly that the patients must have been related.

“My first reaction was that they must have been less-closely related; perhaps they were first cousins, which does happen sometimes. However, looking closer at the samples, I noticed there were way too many similarities.” The doctor consulted the patient’s files, and noted with shock that both had the exact same birth dates listed in 1984. “With this in mind, I was convinced that both patients were fraternal twins.”

The doctor now had a dilemma on his hands: did the married couple already know that they were twins, and had yet still married and now hoped to conceive a child together? Or were they blissfully unaware of the situation. “It was a difficult subject to raise, but I had to discuss it with them,” said the doctor.

During their next appointment at the clinic, the doctor did his best to break the news gently. “They burst out laughing when I asked them if they knew they were twins,” he said. “The husband said that a lot of people remarked on the fact that they shared the same birthdays, and looked similar to each other, but he said it was just a funny coincidence and that the couple were definitely not related. The poor man had no idea.”

After the doctor insisted that the DNA evidence proved the pair were twins, the couple started to take him more seriously. “The wife kept pleading with me to admit I was joking, and I wish that I was, but they had to know the truth,” said the doctor.

Once the news had sunk in, the doctor tried to establish how the twin brother and sister had unknowingly wed each other. “From what we were able to piece together, the biological parents of the couple had died in a car crash when the couple were infants, and they had no close family willing to adopt them. They’d been taken into state care, and were adopted out to separate families. Due to a filing error, neither foster family had ever been told that their adopted child had a twin.”

The doctor explained that the couple had met during college, and a relationship between the pair soon flourished. “They were attracted to each other due to their similarities,” said the doctor. “The fact that they’d both been adopted, after their parents had died, meant they’d both experienced a similar childhood, and they felt they could really connect with each other. If only they had known the truth, it could have saved them so much pain later on.”

For now, the couple are reported to be considering the future of their relationship. “I really hope they can work something out,” said the doctor. “For me, it’s a particularly unusual case because my job is all about helping couples conceive a child. This is the first time in my career that I’ve been glad I haven’t succeeded in that regard.”

From a legal standpoint, marriage between siblings in Mississippi is prohibited and subject to a prison term of up to 10 years. However, the maximum fine is only $500, which critics have claimed encourages marriage between siblings or close relatives. In this case, however, it is believed the couple involved will not face charges due to the unique circumstances of their case.

In other news making headlines, a 27-year old Australian tourist has been charged after an incident at an Orlando nightclub. According to reports, the man allegedly requested a lap dance before farting loudly directly on the stripper's face.

Teens Commandeer BART Train In Violent Takeover Robbery Of Passengers

(CBS SF) — Passengers on a Bay Area Rapid Transit train were robbed, and in some cases beaten, when dozens of juveniles stormed aboard the train and forced them to give up their property, police said.

The incident happened at 9:30 p.m. Saturday at the Coliseum Station in Oakland aboard a Dublin/Pleasanton-bound train.

BART Police said witnesses reported 50 to 60 juveniles jumping the fare gates and going to the platform. After boarding the train the They boarded the train they “committed multiple strongarm robberies of bags and cell phones,” according to a police report.

At least two people were hurt and were treated by paramedics for facial and head injuries.

BART spokeswoman Alicia Trost said there were a total of seven robberies on the train. “We had one purse, one duffel bag and five cellphones stolen,” said Trost. “No weapons were reported.”

The teens all fled into the surrounding neighborhood near the Coliseum before any officers could arrive, police said.

The agency was in the process of gathering security camera footage of the suspects, but will not release it to the public as the suspects are all juveniles. “We are basically getting all the surveillance images that we have, and we’re going to be sharing them with Oakland Police, the schools, Oakland Housing Authority to try to identify the suspects,” said Trost.

Last week, BART announced the hiring of new Police Chief Carlos Rojas, who is looking to increase the number of police officers on trains and in stations.

The agency is also in the process of replacing decoy cameras on trains with real ones after a 19-year-old was shot and killed aboard a train at the West Oakland station with no video evidence.

America Fights Back: Anti-Jewish Incidents on Record-Setting Track for 2017

Anti-Semitic incidents in Massachusetts — swastikas scrawled in middle schools, hateful fliers papering college campuses, threats phoned into community centers — jumped dramatically from 2015 to 2016, new data from the Anti-Defamation League show.

Massachusetts witnessed the fifth-highest number of anti-Semitic incidents in the nation in 2016, with 125 episodes, up from 50 the year before. California, with 211, experienced the most, followed by New York, New Jersey, and Florida. The increases coincide with the divisive campaign for president.

“What is particularly concerning is the escalating number of harassment incidents, because they are a warning sign,” said Robert Trestan, executive director of the Anti-Defamation League’s New England office. “We need to pay close attention to these because we don’t want to see an escalation to violence.”

The Anti-Defamation League — a nonprofit organization that fights anti-Semitism and other expressions of hate — tracks criminal and noncriminal acts against Jews. The information for its report comes from victims, law enforcement officials, and community leaders.

The increase mirrors what is happening nationwide: Acts targeting the Jewish community rose sharply during the first three months of this year.

Since the presidential election in November, the league found, one particular anti-Semitic act has surged: harassment of Jews. Nationwide, the number of reported acts of harassment — including distribution of hateful fliers, threats, and slurs — more than doubled in the first three months of this year, compared to the same stretch in 2016, the data show.

Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey said the report’s findings are troubling.

“These incidents are hurtful, cause significant harm to individuals and families, and threaten the fabric of our communities,” Healey said in a statement. “Even a single incident of hate or bias is one too many. We will continue to work with the [Anti-Defamation League] and other partners to root out bias and hate, and foster respect and inclusion within our communities.”

Jack McDevitt, director of the Institute on Race and Justice at Northeastern University, said the report documents what he, too, has been finding.

“There has been a rebirth of anti-Semitism associated with electoral politics, both in Europe and in hate groups in the United States,” he said.

McDevitt said traffickers in hate focus on any target that is available, including people of color, Muslims, and those who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender. But Jewish people and organizations may bear a larger brunt of the offenses because synagogues and Jewish cemeteries are easy to find, and Swastikas easy to paint, he said.

“I don’t find it surprising, but I do find it incredibly depressing,” McDevitt said. “This is something that will call for major action from political leaders, community leaders, and law enforcement.”

The report noted a significant increase in anti-Semitic episodes in schools, something the league’s office in New England knows all too well. The office has been flooded with calls from school leaders asking for educational programs to help turn the tide.

“There was an incident behind each one of those calls,” Trestan, the league’s New England director, said. The office has been working with 57 schools this year and received requests from 16 additional schools for the fall, he said.

Reported incidents nationwide in elementary, middle, and high schools more than doubled from 2015 to 2016. And that increase has accelerated this year, the numbers show.

That trend worries Jewish leaders, who say schools are a microcosm of the country, with children absorbing messages from their parents and the media, and bringing them into their schools and playgrounds.

Windows 10 Keeps Spying Even When All Privacy Options Are Turned Off (No Shit)

REMEMBER OPSEC: >>>/opsec/4

In addition to the vulnerability of Apple’s expensive gadgetry, iPhones and iMac, to CIA hacking, Bill Gates’ Windows 10 is surveilling its users by default, i.e. no need for the CIA to hack it anymore. What this means is: your PC’s camera, microphone, and keystrokes are being recorded and stored in their cloud-based databases, for future reference.

Simply put, Microsoft Windows 10 and all its previous versions are the Deep State’s window to their users’ private lives.

We should not expect otherwise in the first place.

When you boot up Windows 10 for the very first time, you have the option to customize several settings related to the collection of data from Microsoft’s servers.

You can stop your machine from sending contact and calendar details, typing and speech data, location data and even error and diagnostic reports. Unfortunately, no matter how many boxes you uncheck, Microsoft is still going to collect information from your computer, whether you know it or not.

In a Voat thread last week, a user by the name of CheesusCrust published his findings after running a network traffic analysis relating to the telemetry and surveillance features of Windows 10. The results were troubling, to say the least.

While setting up a fresh copy of Windows 10 Enterprise Edition on VirtualBox, the user went through and disabled all three pages of tracking options, one by one. He then left the computer running for eight hours overnight, and returned to find that Windows 10 had attempted to contact 51 Microsoft IP addresses 5,508 times.

After 30 hours, over 112 IP addresses had been contacted. That's right, Windows 10 is a botnet.

The user attempted the same experiment once again with a fresh install of Windows 10 as well as a third party tool called DisableWinTracking. He discovered that the name of the tool is slightly misleading, as Windows 10 had contacted 30 IP addresses 2,758 times in the same 30 hour time frame.

To make matters worse, US senators just voted to allow your ISP to sell your browsing history without your prior permission.

The US Senate has voted to overturn consumer privacy laws enacted last year by the FCC. The rules, which forced internet service providers to actually get permission before selling your data, were overturned using the little-used Congressional Review Act (CRA).

Democrat Senator Richard Blumenthal said before the vote that “This resolution is a direct attack on consumer rights, on privacy, on rules that afford basic protection against intrusive and illegal interference with consumers’ use of social media sites and websites that often they talk for granted.” Hope you enjoyed it while it lasted.

Man dies 'peacefully' after told Trump was impeached

An Oregon man died "peacefully" after a friend falsely told him that President Trump had been impeached.

Michael Garland Elliot died on April 6, according to his obituary in The Oregonian, and the final words he heard were that the president had been impeached.

Elliot's "ex-wife and best friend" Teresa Elliot shared the false news to bring him comfort in his final moments, according to the obit.

"Mike ran out of family long ago and is survived by his ex-wife and best friend, Teresa Elliott," the obituary read. "Though their marriage ran aground, their friendship only grew stronger and hers was the last voice Mike heard. And the last thing she said to him was 'Donald Trump has been impeached.' Upon hearing that he took his final, gentle breath, his earthly work concluded," reads the obituary.

The tipping point that pushed him to leave the tech bubble and start Gab came earlier this year, when he read that several Facebook employees had come forward to divulge that the network’s trending topics section was actively suppressing conservative news. “I knew I had to take action,” Torba says.

Islamo-fascist Muslim Doctor Who Performed Genital Mutilation Arrested, Denied Bail

The doctor insists it wasn't cutting. But the judge wasn't convinced and locked her up. In a historic female genital mutilation case that has planted a bull's-eye on what prosecutors are calling an "incredibly secretive" religious ritual, a federal magistrate Monday denied bond to an Indian-Muslim doctor accused of mutilating the genitals of two Minnesota girls at a Livonia, Mich., medical clinic. The decision to lock up Dr. Jumana Nagarwala, 44, of Northville, Mich., came after federal prosecutors called her a flight risk and a danger to the community, saying she has hurt numerous girls for years, knowing it was wrong, and even ignored a 2016 directive by her religious community not to engage in female genital mutilation because it's illegal in the U.S. But it wasn't just the government's words that hurt the doctor. Rather, an admission by the physician's own lawyer seemed to weigh heavily with the judge, who in a heated exchange pressed the defense attorney to explain what exactly her client did to two 7-year-old girls on a February night in the undisclosed suburban clinic. U.S. Magistrate Judge Mona Majzoub questioned why the two girls were at the clinic after hours, and, why the doctor kept no records of the visits and never billed for them.

Trump EPA Chief Committed To Fixing Chicago's Lead Contamination

Environmental Protection Agency chief Scott Pruitt said the agency is committed to protecting citizens against lead contamination during a trip to Chicago Wednesday

“Their concerns were heard loud and clear, and I am committed to ensuring that the EPA works with our federal, state and local partners to find solutions that protect the health and safety of East Chicago,” Pruitt said on a trip to a lead facility designated a Superfund clean-up site.

Pruitt sued the EPA more than a dozen times as Oklahoma’s attorney general, mostly because of the agency’s climate regulation-heavy efforts. He said the government would shy away from addressing man-made global warming and instead refocus its efforts toward public health issues, such as water safety.

EPA is getting “back to the basics of protecting human health and the environment,” Pruitt said in a press statement on Wednesday. His visit comes amid rumors the EPA is considering scuttling the Region 5 office, which has been mired in scandals throughout the past year.

Obamanation Era Damages In Flint

Flint citizens filed a lawsuit in January claiming the EPA’s Region 5 office failed to take the proper steps to ensure that state and local authorities were addressing last year’s water crisis. The defendants were seeking a civil action lawsuit for $722 million in damages:

https://web.archive.org/web/20170420185656/https://8ch.net/realnews/res/1355.html

Michigan officials switched the small Eastern Michigan city’s water supply from Lake Huron to the Flint River in a bid to save money. But the state applied the wrong regulations and standards for drinking water, which ultimately resulted in corroded pipes.

Pruitt awarded Michigan $100 million to help replace Flint’s badly eroded and damaged water infrastructure. Former President Barack Obama initially signed off on the funding, but money was not distributed to citizens until after Pruitt approved it.

Funding was provided by the Water Infrastructure Improvements for the Nation Act of 2016 and enables the beleaguered city to replace its decaying lead water pipes. Michigan is providing the required 20 percent match of $20 million.

Bose Headphones Spy On Listeners, Collect & Share User Information, Lawsuit Filed

Bose Corp spies on its wireless headphone customers by using an app that tracks the music, podcasts and other audio they listen to, and violates their privacy rights by selling the information without permission, a lawsuit charged.

The complaint filed on Tuesday by Kyle Zak in federal court in Chicago seeks an injunction to stop Bose's "wholesale disregard" for the privacy of customers who download its free Bose Connect app from Apple Inc or Google Play stores to their smartphones.

"People should be uncomfortable with it," Christopher Dore, a lawyer representing Zak, said in an interview. "People put headphones on their head because they think it's private, but they can be giving out information they don't want to share."

Bose did not respond on Wednesday to requests for comment on the proposed class action case. The Framingham, Massachusetts-based company has said annual sales top $3.5 billion.

Zak's lawsuit was the latest to accuse companies of trying to boost profit by quietly amassing customer information, and then selling it or using it to solicit more business.

After paying $350 for his QuietComfort 35 headphones, Zak said he took Bose's suggestion to "get the most out of your headphones" by downloading its app, and providing his name, email address and headphone serial number in the process.

But the Illinois resident said he was surprised to learn that Bose sent "all available media information" from his smartphone to third parties such as Segment.io, whose website promises to collect customer data and "send it anywhere."

Audio choices offer "an incredible amount of insight" into customers' personalities, behavior, politics and religious views, citing as an example that a person who listens to Muslim prayers might "very likely" be a Muslim, the complaint said.

"Defendants' conduct demonstrates a wholesale disregard for consumer privacy rights," the complaint said.

Zak is seeking millions of dollars of damages for buyers of headphones and speakers, including QuietComfort 35, QuietControl 30, SoundLink Around-Ear Wireless Headphones II, SoundLink Color II, SoundSport Wireless and SoundSport Pulse Wireless.

He also wants a halt to the data collection, which he said violates the federal Wiretap Act and Illinois laws against eavesdropping and consumer fraud.

Dore, a partner at Edelson PC, said customers do not see the Bose app's user service and privacy agreements when signing up, and the privacy agreement says nothing about data collection.

Edelson specializes in suing technology companies over privacy violations.

New Leaked Tools and Manuals Prove the CIA Can Spy Through New Television Sets

RELATED: >>535936

In their latest revelation, Wikileaks has released a user guide describing the working of the Weeping Angel tool designed by CIA and MI5 to compromise Samsung smart TVs. The malware is capable of recording audio from the built-in microphone which can be remotely extracted by the CIA.

The whistleblower website Wikileaks has published another set of hacking tools belonging to the American intelligence agency CIA. The latest revelation includes a user guide for CIA’s “Weeping Angel” tool. It was a part of the first lot of CIA hacking tools released by Wikileaks in March.

Weeping Angel is derived from another tool called “Extending” which belongs to UK’s intelligence agency MI5/BTSS, according to Wikileaks.

Extending takes control of Samsung F Series Smart TV. The highly detailed user guide describes it as an implant “designed to record audio from the built-in microphone and egress or store the data.”

According to the user guide, the malware can be deployed on a TV via a USB stick after configuring it on a Linux system. It is possible to transfer the recorded audio files through the USB stick or by setting up a WiFi hotspot near the TV. Also, a Live Liston Tool, running on a Windows OS, can be used to listen to audio exfiltration in real-time.

Wikileaks mentioned that the two agencies, CIA and MI5/BTSS made collaborative efforts to create Weeping Angel during their Joint Development Workshops. According to a CNET report, these workshops were held sometime around June 2014.

It’s already known that physical access is required for the malware to be deployed. The firmware updates made in 2014 prevents the TVs from being hacked over the internet.

CIA was able to compromise firmware versions 1111, 1112, and 1116. They managed to implement a “Fake Off” mode to deceive users into believing that the TV is turned off while they secretly record conversations. However, they weren’t able to deduce a method to turn off the blue light on the backside of the TV or the Samsung logo that might help the user sense something fishy.

White Historian Found With Child Porn and Bestiality Images

http://www.fox25boston.com/news/florida-historian-arrested-on-child-porn-charges/512537858

This white historian at a Florida university was found with images of child pornography and bestiality on his computer.

According to reports, an investigation by the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office that began in January led to the discovery of illegal images on a computer belonging to James Anthony Schnur, 51, of Seminole.

The fat pedophile, who works as a special collections librarian and historian at the University of South Florida-St. Petersburg, was found with images that “depict child pornography and bestiality,” the sheriff’s office told the local media news outlets.

The university is investigating the charges against the monster, and the school said it has placed him on unpaid leave pending university review.

The child molester had been associated with USF St. Petersburg for 25 years, taught at USF Tampa and Eckerd College, and served as the president of the Pinellas County Historical Society. He also served as a board member in the Florida Historical Society and was named the organization’s Presidential Citation recipient in 2015.

He was arrested at his home on Wednesday and faces several charges, including 10 counts of possession of child pornography. He is being held in the Pinellas County Jail on $1 million bond.

How the American media covers [up] Islamic practice of female genital mutilation (FGM)

Female genital mutilation is an Islamic ritual rampant in the Muslim world. With the increase of Muslim immigration into the United States, so too have clitordectomies. There have been at least 500,000 girls in U.S. who have undergone genital mutilation, or are at risk of having it done.

The enemedia always goes out of its way to censor such stories or they scrub Islam from any connection with this misogynistic Islamic practice. Dissemblers and deceivers claim that FGM is cultural phenomenon, not religious. FGM is an Islamic cultural phenomenon. FGM is found only within and adjacent to Muslim communities (source: Gerry Mackie, “Ending Footbinding and Infibulation: A Convention Account,” American Sociological Review.)

Now that no less than three Muslim doctors have been arrested in Michigan for performing female genital mutilations, the media is rushing to scrub Islam from this Islamic story. Nowhere is Islam mentioned in this article but the Detroit Free Press, a notoriously pro-Islamic newspaper near Dearborn, runs this completely random and misleading piece of misinformation:

A. Renee Bergstrom, 72, of Minnesota, said a fundamentalist, Christian doctor mutilated her genitals in 1947 to prevent her from masturbating when she grew up.

Despicable.

They had to go all the way back to 1947 to find this freak account. “Christian doctor” But no where in this article does the write Tresa Baldas ever mention the millions of Muslim clit cutters. These people are evil.

>200 Million Girls Have Undergone FGM, 70 Million More Than Previously Thought

>Imam: Female Genital Mutilation “Recommended by Islam”

>Senior Muslim Cleric: Universal Female Genital Mutilation ‘Would Be Very Good’

>Clitoridectomy Imam and his wife are jailed for mutilating the genitals of their four daughters

>Texas Imam, Main Al-Qudah, issues call to action to support clitoridectomies

>Female circumcision is a right, says imam – The Australia

Over 96% of the girls in Egypt, the largest Muslim country in the Middle East, have been cut.

Saudi Arabia to Obtain Arms, Nuclear Technology in McMaster-Orchestrated Deal

Saudi Arabia will obtain a massive weapons arsenal and missile defense system in a deal pushed by H.R. McMaster, Gary Cohn, and Dina Powell. Under this deal, which is set to be announced in May, Saudia Arabia will obtain technology to build civilian nuclear reactors.

President Trump has expressed skepticism of this deal despite continued pressure from McMaster, Cohn, and Powell.

Saudi Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal, who has ties to terrorists, once called President Trump a “disgrace to all America.”

Sources suggest that McMaster, Cohn, and Powell seek the Saudi’s good graces as part of their larger plan to involve the U.S. in another ground war in Syria.

BOOM! WikiLeaks Posts Clinton Email: "Al-Qaeda Is On Our Side In Syria"

RELATED: >>>/realnews/2024

WikiLeaks twitter account posted an unclassified email to Hillary Clinton from her foreign policy advisor, Jake Sullivan, dated February 2012 saying, "AQ is on our side in Syria."

The other part of the email published by WikiLeaks reads: https://archive.fo/IJYHT

UNCLASSIFIED U.S. Department of State Case No. F-2014-20439 Doc No. C05789138 Date: 10/30/2015 AL-ZAWAHIRI URGES MUSLIM SUPPORT FOR OPPOSITION (U) Al-Qaida leader al-Zawahiri called on Muslims in Turkey and the Middle East to aid rebel forces in their fight against supporters of Syrian President Asad in an interne video recording. Al-Zawahiri also urged the Syrian people not to rely on the AL, Turkey, or the United States for assistance.euters)

Read the full chain of unclassified emails in that document published by Wikileaks here: https://archive.fo/IJYHT

The news follows revelations by WikiLeaks last year that Hillary Clinton admitted in private emails that Qatar and Saudi Arabia – two of her mega-donors – provide financial and logistical support to ISIS.

In the extraordinary email, sent to John Podesta in 2014, Clinton mentioned that Saudi Arabia and Qatar are both giving financial and logistical support to the Islamic State and other extremist Sunni groups.

She conveniently fails to mention that these two terror-funding states are both mega-donors to the Clinton Foundation. Qatar has given between $1 million and $5 million to the Clinton Foundation and Saudi Arabia has donated upwards of $25 million dollars to the Foundation.

Nowhere in the email – sent, of course, through the notorious unsecured server – does Clinton address the staggering hypocrisy of continuing to provide Saudi Arabia with multiple billions in weapons, arms, aircraft, and other support in full knowledge of its active support for terrorists.

Hillary Clinton has known since at least 2014 that the governments of Saudi Arabia and Qatar provide “clandestine financial and logistic support” to ISIS and other radical Islamic groups – but, rather than refuse their money and call for a halt of arms sales and support, she has campaigned for more money and tried to increase their supply of arms.

Heroin Crisis: Nevada Becomes First State to Install Syringe Vending Machines

Las Vegas is betting on a new approach to combat rising heroin and HIV rates: vending machines of clean needles.

But the syringe exchange vending machines, a first in the United States, aren't open to just anyone walking by. They are accessible to clients of Trac-B Exchange, a program run by the Las Vegas Hard Reduction Center.

And the machines don't take money. Instead, drug users scan a card and enter a unique ID number in order to vend one of the colorfully gift-wrapped boxes inside.

"This is a harm reduction approach," said Chelsi Cheatom, program manager for Trac-B Exchange, in an interview with NBC Las Vegas affiliate KSNV. "People are already exchanging in these behaviors, and anytime someone's engaging in a behavior that could cause them some potential health side effects, we want to encourage them to reduce their risk of harm."

WikiLeaks released what it claims is the 31-page user guide for a CIA device code-named “Weeping Angel.” It can turn some Samsung TVs into surveillance tools with an implant for recording audio from a TV’s built-in microphone.

Posted online Friday, the release is the latest dump of classified documents stolen from U.S. government agencies. Those thefts include thousands of pages taken by Chelsea Manning and Edward Snowden.

CBS News has learned the CIA and the FBI believe the recent theft at the CIA was an inside job. Investigators say the materials were stolen from a highly secure section of the intelligence agency where it takes two people to access information.

But even that security measure was apparently not enough to stop the leaks.

A trove of documents released Tuesday by WikiLeaks claim that a CIA surveillance program can target everyday electronic gadgets — including smart TVs, smartphones and even cars.

The spy program can snoop on unsuspecting Americans, WikiLeaks says, by turning the gadgets into recording devices that can capture conversations.

The agency’s “Weeping Angel” program — believed to be developed along with British agency MI5 — allegedly captured audio, but not video, after the Samsung smart TVs were compromised.

According to WikiLeaks, even when the TV appears to be turned off, it “operates as a bug, recording conversations in the room and sending them over the internet to a covert CIA server.”

While the TVs are in what’s called “fake-off mode,” the screen appears off and the LEDs on the front of the set dim as if you’d turned off your TV.

Nonetheless, the TV remains “on” and capable of recording conversations after the CIA has hacked the TV remotely.

The TV’s microphones are normally there for viewers to make voice commands, such as requests for movie recommendations. Other information that could be gleaned off of one’s smart TV include browser histories and WiFi information.

Socialist Venezuelan Dictator Now Building A Civilian Army To Squash Dissent

RELATED: >>>/realnews/349 (https://archive.fo/SUqYr)

Venezuelan dictator Nicolas Maduro is giving guns to upwards of 400,000 of his supporters in hopes of squashing opponents’ demands for free and fair elections.

The guns would increase the 100,000 pro-Maduro militia members to roughly half a million in the short term, though Maduro spoke of “one million” militiamen in the long term.

On Sunday night, Maduro ordered the National Bolivarian Militia, a coalition of armed socialist civilians empowered to enforce Maduro’s will, into the streets to stem the tide of opponents calling for elections to replace him. He promised “a gun for every militiaman” and the quadrupling of his civilian force, from 100,000 to 400,000, as soon as possible.

According to Fox News/AP/EFE, Maduro is framing his gun giveaway as a means of fighting outside forces controlled by America seeking to remove him from office.

Defense Minister Vladimir Padrino Lopez said:

The excessive ambition of [our] enemies threatens the peace and stability by carrying out a criminal agenda loaded with hate that includes terrorist acts, disturbances, looting, vandalism, different forms of violence against innocent people and public health facilities.

Padrino said the protesters are creating “anxiety in the public, anarchy and chaos, with the ignoble aim of toppling the democratic government.”

Venezuela banned the sale of guns to private citizens in 2012 during the tenure of the late dictator Hugo Chávez.

On June 1, 2012, the BBC reported that private citizens with a license/permit to own firearms would lose their rights, their permits invalid for purchasing or keeping weapons they already owned. “Only the army, police and certain groups like security companies [would] be able to buy arms from the state-owned weapons manufacturer and importer,” the BBC noted. At that time, “Hugo Chavez’s government [said] the ultimate aim [was] to disarm all civilians.”

The law has prevented most civilians from keeping firearms, though they are readily available on the black market, and criminals are known to be well-armed.

In the past two weeks, five people have died during protests, most attributed to police brutality. On Wednesday, a sixth victim – a teen student in Caracas – died of a gunshot wound to the head, which witnesses attributed to socialist gangs.

German Judge Says Turkish Drug Dealer's Forced Violent Sex Is 'Culturally' Not Rape

Rape is Part of their Culture

A German judge has acquitted a Turkish man of rape, despite the fact that he forced a woman to have sex with him, and left her incapacitated. The judge argued that in "the mentality of the Turkish cultural circle," what the woman "had experienced as rape" might be considered merely "wild sex." The judge refused to convict the rapist, because "no intention is demonstrable."

According to the German daily newspaper Märkische Allgemeine (forgive the weak translation from Google Translate), the judge told the woman, "I believe Mrs. G. every word," but added that "her tormentor probably did not know what he was doing to her." On the night of August 18, 2016, the 23-year-old Turkish man sold drugs to the young woman and they consumed speed together.

He asked her to "go to bed with her" and she refused. According to the report, she had said he was "not her type." But the drug dealer forced himself on her. Here's how the paper described the encounter:

The young drug trader then complimented his customer, dragged her by the arm, threw her on the bed and pulled her out. He shoved his shoulders firmly against the metal bars at the head of his bed, his head jammed between two of them. The woman cried "stop" and resisted by scratching the accused at the back. But at some point she gave up and let her go as she put it. Several times he had entered her, the whole ordeal ended after four hours, when he got a call and suddenly had to leave, so that she too could go.

She refused, cried "stop" after he had grabbed her, and then finally she gave up. To most people, that sounds like rape. Indeed, the German paper reported that the Turkish man "carried on the sexual intercourse for hours on end so badly" that the girl could "not run properly for the next two weeks."

"On the one hand, the magistrate's court believed the victim, and on the other hand, the accused, according to which the wild sex was amicable," the Märkische Allgemeine reported. Amicable? When the girl could not even run properly "for the next two weeks"?!

According to the report, the decisive question was "Could it be that the defendant thought you were in agreement?" To this, the poor girl — who had given up struggling after she had been raped — said "that could be."

"She could not judge whether, with the mentality of the Turkish cultural circle, he had thought the happenings she experienced as rape might have been for wild sex," the paper reported. "A conviction is not possible, because no intention is demonstrable."

In other words, the judge acquitted a rapist — whom the court had "no doubt" forced the victim to have sex with him — on the grounds that his culture might not have considered the sex — which left the girl unable to run for two weeks — to be rape.

Oh, and of course, the defendant "denied from the beginning that he had raped" the girl. His defense? "He would not do such a thing, especially since he himself had a mother and a sister." That clinches it! What American court would buy this shoddy defense?

According to the Märkische Allgemeine, "rape causes relatively few convictions before German courts." The paper cited a 2012 study showing that only 8.4 percent of men accused of rape were convicted.

The percentage of conviction is not in itself proof that the court system is too lax on rapists. (That argument has been used to push for rape findings and expulsions against countless American college men despite evidence that no rape has occurred.) But this case seems rather clear-cut, and the "cultural" defense laughable, if it weren't so tragic.

Unfortunately, this is far from the first time Germany has faced a rape crisis. On New Year's Eve 2016, more than 1,200 women were sexually assaulted in various German cities, and authorities linked the sexual assaults to the influx of refugees. German politicians refused to speak out about these heinous crimes, perhaps due to fear of offending Muslims.

The problem with this strategy is that by turning a blind eye to violent rapists in order to avoid offending Muslims, liberals end up alienating the Muslims who do condemn rape, and want to see fewer rapes in their own communities.

Acquitting this Turkish man of rape sends the message that foreigners, or refugees, or Muslims, can claim their culture interprets forced sex as "wild sex." Not only does this condone rape, but it also might endanger women in Muslim communities, thus hurting the very people liberals are so afraid of offending.

French Dictatorship Seeks To Rig Election By Allowing Voter Fraud for Le Pen Opponents

A 'computer error' might cost Marine Le Pen the French general election as 500,000 citizens living outside of France have the chance to vote twice.

There are astounding reports indicating that half a million people managed to receive duplicate polling cards. The duplicates would allow them to cast two votes in the first round of the election which will be held on the 23rd of April.

The incident will not be investigated by French authorities until the election is over. The authorities confirmed that they would not be investigating the potential electoral fraud.

The decision by French authorities is likely to crush Ms. Le Pen’s dreams of rising to power, as most French nationals living outside of their country are not right-wing.

What a "coincidence!" Looks like the EU and it's subjugated vassal states have no real intention of allowing any form of democracy to get in their way.

Trump Throws Campaign Aide Under The Bus Over Elite Pedo Ring Ties

Defiant President Trump has had a member of his own campaign team thrown in jail for belonging to the elite pedophile ring that has infiltrated politics nationwide.

Tim Nolan, the former chair of the Trump campaign for Campbell County, Kentucky, has been arrested and charged with “felony human trafficking of a minor, felony inducing a minor to engage in sex, and a third count of giving alcohol to a minor,” according to the indictment filed in Boone County, KY.

According to the The River City News (https://archive.fo/gzTAj), who obtained the indictment on Friday, Nolan has been charged with “human trafficking (a class B felony), first degree unlawful transaction with a minor (a class C felony), and third degree unlawful transaction with a minor (a class A misdemeanor).

The alleged crimes were committed in 2016, while he was chair of the Campbell County arm of the Trump campaign.

But Trump has declared that children are more important than partisan politics, and insisted Nolan be thrown in jail and prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

No mercy

Trump knows pedophiles politicians value their filth over party politics. The enjoyment of murdering and raping children completely overrides any political differences they have.

At the end of the day, a pedophile politician is a compromised being working for the global elite – not a functioning member of the Republican Party.

Nolan is a former county district judge and current member of the Board of Education for Campbell County.

But connections and friends in high places count for nothing with President Trump when it comes to draining the swamp of pedophiles.

No matter which side of the aisle you are from, you are going down.

Weeks after former mayor of Hubbard, Ohio (D) Richard Keenan admitted in court to raping a young child, the current Democrat mayor of Seattle is now being dragged to court on pedophile charges as President Trump’s federal investigation into the elite pedophile ring begins taking down high-profile perpetrators.

Nobody is safe

Federal authorities have locked up more than 3,500 people on child trafficking and pedophilia charges since President Trump assumed office, however the huge increase in numbers on recent years is being completely ignored by mainstream media.

According to the FBI there were less than 400 sex trafficking-related arrests made in the entirety of 2014, proving that President Trump is serious about using “the “full force and weight” of the U.S. government to break up child sex trafficking rings and lock up sexual predators.

“This should be one of the biggest stories in the national news. Instead, the mainstream media has barely, if at all, covered any of these mass pedophile arrests. This begs the question – why?” Liz Crokin wrote for Townhall.com.

In a press conference from the White House on Feb. 23, Trump addressed how human trafficking is a “dire problem” domestically and internationally and set his sights on the elite pedophile ring that has established itself in Washington D.C., spreading a toxic agenda and destabilizing our democracy.

By taking down elected officials, judges, and senior law enforcement officers, Trump is proving he is serious about protecting children from the elite pedophile ring and he is delivering on his promises.

Leftist student activists in Kentucky want free tuitions for blacks as reparation for slavery

Students at Western Kentucky University (WKU) think black students should have free tuition as a means of providing reparations for past wrongs like slavery, Campus Reform reports.

>In a vote on Tuesday, the Western Kentucky University student government passed a resolution, 19-10, that advocates the recognition of slavery as a “debt that will never be paid” and offer free tuition to black students as compensation.

The resolution also seeks the creation of a special task force to investigate the possibility of amending the admissions system so that it is weighted geographically — which, theoretically, would make acceptance at WKU easier for black students.

Andre Ambam, who fought for the resolution, told the WKU Herald that racial inequality is the basis of economic inequality — the chief reason for blacks not attending college.

“If you really care about diversity, if you really care about inclusion, if you really care about making this campus safe and accessible to everybody, having the student government’s support of reparation for black students would be amazing,” Ambam said.

“This is something that I think is more importantly about sending a clear message than it is about actually trying to strive for the institution to actually give out free tuition to everybody,” noted Brian Anderson, the resolution’s co-author.

Some of the student senators tried to dissuade their peers from supporting the resolution by arguing that offering free tuition for some entails demanding more tuition from others; contending that someone, either through direct fees or indirect taxes will have to subsidize those attending the university free of charge. They further observed that historical injustice for some cannot be rectified by creating contemporary injustice for others.

“It will disadvantage other people from getting the same education,” Student senator William Hurst said. “I am not discounting that there is an obvious disadvantage to African-American students, but this resolution would discriminate against other populations.”

Student senator Lily Nellans said the resolution is designed to compensate black people for the white privilege that has historically defined American society.

“A lot of times equality can feel like oppression for those who are losing their advantage, but that’s not a reason we shouldn’t fight for equality,” Nellans said.

ATF Sued Over Obama-era Plan To Ban Popular AR-15 Ammo

A government watchdog agency has filed a federal Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives seeking records related to a proposed rule change that would ban certain types of AR-15 ammunition.

The ATF backed off its February 2015 proposal to revise regulatory rules by reclassifying the so-called “green tip” ammunition for the AR-15, which is manufactured as both a rifle and a handgun. These rules of enforcement fall under the Gun Control Act of 1968.

If reclassified as proposed in February 2015, the green-tip rounds would be considered “armor piercing” and, therefore, illegal.

In March 2015, more than 200 members of Congress wrote to former ATF director Todd Jones expressing “serious concern” that the proposal might violate the Second Amendment by restricting ammunition that had been primarily used for target shooting, hunting and other “sporting purposes.”

President Trump campaigned on a strong platform of gun rights. To date, the ATF has shown no interest in renewing the push to ban the .223 “green-tip” ammo.

But the watchdog agency Judicial Watch is taking no prisoners, filing a lawsuit against the ATF and claiming that it can’t be trusted to not renew its crusade against the AR-15 weapon so popular among Americans.

“It doesn’t seem to be as front burner as it has been during the previous administration, but that doesn’t mean it has gone away,” said Jill Farrell, public affairs director for Judicial Watch. “There is a big anti-gun movement that is still afoot, and they would like to see this ammo, and frankly more, banned. So the AR-15 has been the lightning rod between the left and the right for some time. It’s very popular, which makes it a good boogie man.”

But Cherie Duvall-Jones, social media program manager for the ATF, told WND in an email Thursday that the ATF decided not to proceed with finalizing the proposed framework in 2015 and at this time has no plans to resurrect it.

“In 2015, ATF proposed a framework for the evaluation of requests to exempt certain ammunition defined to be armor piercing under the provisions of the Gun Control Act, and posted the proposal for public comment,” she said. “After receiving extensive public comment, ATF decided not to proceed with finalizing the proposed framework, including a provision in the framework that would have revoked an existing exemption for .223 ‘green-tip’ ammunition.”

The 2015 congressional letter asserts the ATF’s move “does not comport with the letter or spirit of the law and will interfere with Second Amendment rights by disrupting the market for ammunition that law-abiding Americans use for sporting and other legitimate purposes.”

Judicial Watch told WND that it wants clarity on how the proposed ammo ban ever saw the light of day, as this is the only way to assure it never finds new life.

“This is yet another example of how Obama’s wanton use of the ‘pen and the phone’ attempted to undermine the constitutional rights of all Americans, as opposed to upholding the rule of law,” said Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch. “The Obama ATF simply ignored our request on their ammo ban. Let’s hope the Trump administration finally brings transparency to this out-of-control agency.”

“We want communications on how that whole discussion came to be. But here you have this proposed reclassification that’s not going through normal channels,” Farrell said. “There are certain guidelines proposed for changing regulations, and those are being bypassed. It’s black-letter law: There is a clear statutory definition of ‘armor piercing ammunition’ in existence.”

As Predicted! ISIS Terrorists Launch Second Chemical Attack (Busted!), Mainstream Media Goes Silent

RELATED: >>>/n/532727 (https://archive.fo/awccv)

ISIS have used chemical weapons for the second time in two days, as the jihadist forces try to push back Iraqi government forces’ advance in Mosul.

The chemical attack took place in a recently-liberated area of Mosul, and provides more damning evidence against the official narrative concerning the Syrian gas attack pushed by Western mainstream media.

Contrary to what the White House and mainstream media claim, there is no proof the Syrian attack was carried out by Assad’s government forces.

The fact that ISIS possesses, and has a history of using, chemical weapons in Iraq and Syria, is consistently suppressed by mainstream media.

It’s all part of the establishment’s one-eyed drive towards regime change in Syria.

If the American people are told that rebel groups including ISIS use chemical weapons in the region, then the establishment won’t be able to deploy the “Assad has chemical weapons and must be toppled” narrative that has been pushed with increasing fervor recently.

The two chemical attacks by ISIS in the last two days prove that Assad and Putin were right – the jihadi rebels in Syria, attempting to overthrow the sovereign government, were responsible for the attack.

Not Assad, who was in a position of strength, driving the rebels out of his country.

Media Blackout

Notice the difference in the media reaction after this chemical attack and the Syrian gas attack? The mainstream media are almost silent. The majority won’t report on this atrocity because it doesn’t suit their narrative.

For those still not in the know, ISIS is backed by Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey and the USA. The jihadis are being used as a proxy army in the region to destabilize the Assad government and force regime change.

While mainstream media has suppressed the story, it was briefly reported on by Associated Press:

The spokesman for the Joint Operation Command in Iraq said Sunday that the Islamic State attacked government troops in western Mosul with a type of gas, the second such attack in as many days.

Brigadier General Yahya Rasool said six soldiers suffered breathing problems from the attack on Sunday and were treated in a field clinic. An investigation was launched to determine what type of gas was used.

The attack occurred a day after an Iraqi military officer said ISIS militants launched a gas attack in the al-Abar neighborhood in western Mosul.

Two army officers say masks and other equipment have been distributed to forces in case of future gas attacks. They spoke anonymously as they were not authorized to speak to media.

CRAZY! Mainstream Media Calls For Truck Ban After Islamic Terror Attack In Stockholm

Sponsored by >>>/crazynews/

One of Sweden’s biggest newspapers has called for new regulations on motor vehicles in Stockholm after Friday’s massacre involving a terrorist who stole a delivery truck and drove it over the bodies of innocent victims on the city’s busy sidewalks.

While there have been many morbid jokes about the need to “ban assault trucks” as jihadists have chosen vehicular people-slaughter as their favored method for mass murder, Eva Franchell of Aftonbladet has penned an article that brings the meme to life, and highlights the depths to which the socialist-globalist Swedish establishment are willing to force their society in dhimmitude to the Islamic invasion.

“Cars have turned into deadly weapons. They have been easy to steal and then nothing has been able to stop their advance,” she writes in Swedish. “In Nice, Berlin, Jerusalem, London and Stockholm they have been used as effective murder machines for terrorists who wanted to kill many people.”

“If people in the future will be protected, cars must simply removed from the collection sites and city centers.”

“It is not reasonable that a big truck can be driven right into Stockholm’s popular walking street on a Friday afternoon just before Easter,” she continues. “Politicians have been good at protecting themselves, but now they must also ensure citizens’ needs for secure environments.”

Nowhere in her piece does Ms. Franchell discuss Europe’s unfolding open borders disaster and its direct correlation to an escalation in terrorist attacks on European soil – she blames inanimate objects instead.

She also failed to mention the jihad component involved in each of the incidents she cites.

She made no mention of the fact that Friday’s killer was an illegal alien from Uzbekistan with ties to terrorist organizations who had been evading deportation after his application for asylum was rejected last year.

Sweden's response to the Stockholm attack:

– A pro-divisity hashtag

– Anti-"racism" demos

– Proposal to ban cars

– Free hugs

RIP, Sweden.

Saudi Arabia Switching to BRICS in Response to US Congress 911 'Blackmail'

After realizing that the US Congress’s move to allow the filing of charges against the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for its supposed role in the “terrorist” attack on New York in 2001 could be Washington DC’s way of putting the House of Saud on notice — that it, too, is not exempt from its two-faced foreign policy, and could be a future target for a regime change once it ceases to be a willing subject to systematic extortion, like what’s being done with Japan for decades right after the Second World War, the House of Saud continues to engage Russia for a possible common ground.

Russia is responding positively to the Saudi initiative, and already the two are defying the pressure from the latter’s long-time “ally.”

Russia continues to develop relations with Saudi Arabia, Washington’s longstanding ally in the Middle East. In addition to the ongoing cooperation in the energy sphere, the two countries are expected to launch lucrative investment projects and probably start working together in the defense sector.

Russia continues to compete with Washington on the US’ traditional “playground” in the Middle East.

On April 6, the Russian Foreign Ministry made an important statement on the Palestinian-Israeli settlement, recognizing East Jerusalem as the capital of the future Palestinian state and West Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Commenting on the issue, Israeli political analyst Avigdor Eskin told Sputnik that Russia has surpassed the US by recognizing West Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

“The current statement regarding the recognition of West Jerusalem as the capital of Israel reflects a warm and friendly atmosphere [between Russia and Israel]. This is highly appreciated,” the Israeli political analyst underscored.

“Russia is much closer to the region and has a deeper understanding of the situation. If Trump remains ‘under siege’ and doesn’t prevail for the rest of his term, we might expect a stronger Russian influence,” Eskin predicted.

But that is not all.

On Monday a Russian parliamentary delegation, headed by Federation Council Chair Valentina Matvienko, concluded its visit to Saudi Arabia, Washington’s other key ally in the Middle East.

Assessing the results of the summit, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov said that contacts between Moscow and Riyadh are expanding at various levels.

“Indeed, there is a deepening of mutual understanding between our countries; contacts are taking place at all levels,” he said during a meeting with the head of The King Salman Center for Humanitarian Aid and Relief.

As expected, the cooperation in the oil and gas spheres had become the centerpiece of the negotiations between Russia and Saudi Arabia. Moscow and Riyadh continue to take steps to reduce oil production to balance the market.

The countries have fully complied with all their obligations under the agreement between OPEC and other oil-producing countries.

“Russia and Saudi Arabia acted as guarantors of the implementation of this agreement, and I am sure that this cooperation will continue, because no one is interested in a chaotic development of events [in the oil market],” Matvienko said, as quoted by RIA Novosti.

So-Called White Helmets Work Only in ‘Areas Where Islamist Groups Operate’, New Findings Reveal

The White Helmets in Syria is rather a propaganda organization than a humanitarian one, German activist Joachim Guilliard said in an interview with Sputnik Germany. He also called to lift sanctions against Damascus, instead of providing millions to the White Helmets.

"They worked [in Aleppo] in close cooperation with al-Nusra Front militants. After the militants were defeated in Aleppo the White Helmets left the city," he said.

Recently, the White Helmets have once again been in the media spotlight following the reported chemical attack in Idlib on April 4. The organization published footage showing its members rescuing those affected by the alleged chemical attack.

The Swedish NGO Doctors for Human Rights (SWEDHR) has accused the White Helmets of falsifying information about their work in Syria, including on the situation in Idlib. According to the activists, the White Helmets staged their so-called "rescue" attempts shown in their videos for purposes of propaganda.

Commenting on the findings on the Swedish activists, Guilliard underscored that despite the fact that when it comes to videos and relations with media the White Helmets are very professional, an analysis shows that their materials are often falsified.

Trump, Freedom Caucus and Big Wig RINOs Get Together To Negotiate Obamacare Repeal

RELATED: >>>/realnews/588

House Freedom Caucus and moderate Republicans are edging closer to a deal on repealing Obamacare.

The agreement, brokered by House Freedom Caucus chairman Mark Meadows (R-NC) and Tuesday Group co-chairman Tom MacArthur (R-NJ), would allow states to eliminate Obamacare’s community rating system, a rule that prohibits health insurers from pricing health care plans based on age, gender, or health status. States that repeal Obamacare’s community rating rules would have to join a federal high-risk pool or establish a local high-risk pool to obtain the waiver.

The deal, known as the MacArthur amendment, would also reinstate Obamacare’s Essential Health Benefits, although states could waive Obamacare’s Essential Health Benefits if they were to prove that eliminating those regulations would lower premiums, increase the number of people insured, or “advance another benefit to the public interest in the state.”

Essential Health Benefits require that health insurance plans must cover certain services such as doctors’ services, inpatient or outpatient hospital care, prescription drugs, pregnancy, childbirth, and mental health.

House Freedom Caucus chairman Mark Meadows explained to Breitbart News exclusively earlier this month that he expected House Republicans to unite around common principles and pass an Obamacare repeal that will lower premiums for Americans soon.

Meadows told Breitbart News:

I’m optimistic that we’ve at least found some potential common ground. Conservative requests and those from those that represent districts that may have a more moderate constituency don’t want to suggest anything other than the discussions have been extremely good over the last 72 hours and the pre-existing conditions that must be addressed on behalf of the president and certainly most members of our GOP conference including myself, that issue is where we’re working very diligently to make sure we cover it in the legislation but then we also cover it in a number of ways whether it be through a risk-sharing pool or through a guaranteed issue provision that’s out there. So, we still believe providing waivers at the state level from many of the Obamacare mandates that drive up costs might be a real path forward so I would say that conversations between moderates and conservatives are very constructive and it’s been due in no small part to the active involvement of the White House and leadership in trying to make sure we get a good bill—a better bill—going forward over to the Senate.

Meadows also predicted that the renewed negotiations would create a better Obamacare repeal bill.

Meadows said:

I can tell you the president has communicated to me on more than four different occasions that he wants the very best bill possible for the American people and that he believes that not only will we get a better bill but with everyone’s input—not just conservative members, but conservatives, moderates and those that are in between—that we’ll get a better bill and we’ll shock the American people when they actually see their healthcare insurance premiums come down. I’m confident we’re going to get there mainly because the president literally not only wants to repeal and replace Obamacare, but the other part of that is he wants to drive down premiums for all Americans.

Freedom Caucus sources say that that the MacArthur amendment would secure 25 to 30 more votes from conservatives and that the new bill would get “very close” to 216 votes. Sources revealed that 18 to 20 of those “yes” vote would be new.

Boycott ALL New Bose Speakers, Headphones: They Spy On Consumers

A lawsuit was charged against Bose Corp for spying on customers through its wireless headphone. By using an app that tracks the music, podcasts and other audio, they can listen and violate customer’s privacy rights by selling the information without permission.

Kyle Zak filed the complaint on Tuesday in federal court in Chicago to seek an injunction to stop Bose Corp "wholesale disregard" for the privacy of customers who download its free Bose Connect app from Apple Inc or Google Play stores to their Smartphone devices.

Zak’s lawyer, Christopher Dore said people should be uncomfortable with it, people uses the headphones because they think it's private, but they (Bose Corp) can be giving out information they don't want to share.

Bose has not responded from any comment on the proposed class action case. Bose Corp annual sales was said to top $3.5 billion.

Zak's lawsuit was the case against companies who are trying to boost their profit by quietly store customer information, and then selling it or using it to solicit more business opportunities.

Zak said after paying $350 for a QuietComfort 35 headphones, he downloaded a suggested Bose's app to "get the most out of your headphones", he provided his name, email address and headphone serial number in the process. Zak was surprised when he learned that Bose sent "all available media information" from his Smartphone to third parties such as Segment.io, whose website promises to collect customer data and "send it anywhere."

He added that the audio choices offer an incredible amount of insight into customers' personalities, behavior, politics and religious views, he even citied as an example that a person who listens to Muslim prayers might "very likely" be a Muslim. The defendants' conduct demonstrates a wholesale disregard for consumer privacy rights based on his complaint.

Zak is seeking millions of dollars of damages for customers who bought the headphones and speakers, these models includes QuietComfort 35, QuietControl 30, SoundLink Around-Ear Wireless Headphones II, SoundLink Color II, SoundSport Wireless and SoundSport Pulse Wireless.

He also wants a stop with data collection which he said violates the federal Wiretap Act and Illinois laws against eavesdropping and consumer fraud.

Dore, a partner at Edelson PC, said customers of Bose do not see any app's user service and privacy agreements upon signing up. The privacy agreement says nothing about data collection.

Is RINO Ryan Trying To Revive Dead TTIP Deal Struck Down by Trump?

Despite months of clear bilateral focus from the White House and the apparently death of the controversial Transatlantic Trade Investment Partnership (TTIP) speaker of the House of Representatives Paul Ryan used a political speech in London to claim the deal was progressing.

Speaking at an event hosted by establishment think tank Policy Exchange on Wednesday evening attended by several members of the UK Parliament, Ryan talked up future trade deals with Britain — but also brought up the secretly negotiated TTIP trade arrangement with the European Union that many considered dead with the arrival of President Trump, and had been the subject of major protests across Europe. He said:

Now that Article 50 has been invoked, the UK and EU will determine the best path forward over the course of negotiations. We want the parties to come together and strike a lasting agreement. A strong UK-EU relationship is in all of our best interests.

In that same vein, the United States will continue to work closely with our EU friends, and chart a path forward on T-TIP negotiations. At the same time, we are committed to work with President Trump and your government to achieve a bilateral trade agreement between the United States and Great Britain.

This is one of the bipartisan messages I bring with me: that the United States stands ready to forge a new trade agreement with Great Britain as soon as possible, so that we may further tap into the great potential between our people.

One of those who sounded the death-knell of TTIP was Professor Ted Malloch, the man widely regarded as Trump’s pick for ambassador to the European Union, who spoke on the Breitbart Daily Show in January to give his perspective.

Giving a blunt of the health prospects of the trade negotiations that would have seen the secretive and undemocratic agreement, Professor Malloch said: “TTIP is a non-starter, it isn’t going to happen in the Trump world.”

Border Wall Contractors Request Right to Carry Guns

A contractor bidding on President Trump’s border wall wants to know if authorities will “rush in” to protect his crew if they come under “hostile fire” during construction, according to an Associated Press story reported by Yahoo News.

Another contractor asked if the federal government could suspend California and other states’ anti-gun laws to allow employees to carry guns, and indemnify them from liability if they are forced to use them.

Since bids were due on Tuesday — and the politics over the construction of the wall are heating up — it should come as no surprise that company owners are concerned for the safety of their employees.

The Chicago Tribune reports that a U.S. official who spoke on the condition of anonymity said that “four to 10 bidders are expected to be chosen to build prototypes” in San Diego.

The threat of possible violence is very real, as armed Border Patrol Agents are attacked every day — including three times in a single day last month. Past efforts to construct any sort of physical barrier have been met with resistance — mostly from political activists, but also from international drug cartels, border bandits, and the smugglers who profit from trafficking human beings and drugs into the US.

Even though the Border Patrol would have the most immediate jurisdiction in the area, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), the agency soliciting the bids, has made it clear that firms must plan on providing their own security.

However, the three main agencies in charge of law enforcement for the region — Border Patrol and the San Diego Police and Sheriff’s Departments — will reportedly enforce a buffer around the construction zone, if deemed necessary, while also respecting the “constitutional rights to free speech and assembly for any peaceful, law-abiding protesters.”

With inflammatory rhetoric coming from every direction — including the Mexican Archdiocese, who declared that any Mexican companies who help build the wall will be considered “traitors” to their country — the company (or companies) who win the right to build it are likely to see more trouble ahead, as some of the contractors have received death threats simply for bidding on the project.

In response to the questions about security, AP reported that CBP said that “the Border Patrol would respond as needed if there is a hostile attack, but companies were responsible for security. The government won’t allow waivers from state gun laws or indemnify companies whose workers use deadly force.”

Breaking: Two Of Trey Gowdy’s Investigators Reported Missing

LIKELY RELATED: >>>/totalnews/129

Two investigators working for the Congressional committee headed by Trey Gowdy (R-SC) have gone missing in the Little Rock, Arkansas area.

According to phone records, the two men were in Little Rock with congressional subpoenas and instructions to search the private residence attached to the William Jefferson Clinton Presidential Library.

The two investigators, whose identities will remain classified until it can be confirmed that foul play was involved, were employees of the federal government under private contract to investigate the Clintons. The specifics of what they were looking for is also classified.

Their vehicle, a blue Ford Escape, was found in a rest area just outside of town with the keys in the ignition, according to sources.

Jeff Session’s Department of Justice assigned special investigators to the case in order to keep it out of the hands of the FBI, which he believes may have become compromised.

In March, Trey Gowdy fought back tears in Congress as he put the elite pedophile ring on notice, warning that anyone who dares interfere with his child exploitation investigation will be forced to publicly explain why they are obstructing it.

Gowdy delivered an emotionally charged speech on the first day back at Congress, discussing child sex abuse cases and the mental images that have been scarred on his brain after seeing material related to the investigation into the pedophile rings that have infiltrated Washington D.C.

Addressing a detective charged with heading the investigation, Gowdy said: “I want you to give me a list of the providers that are giving you a hard time. We are going to have another [hearing] here. We are going to have them come and publicly explain why they are having a hard time complying with law enforcement in child exploitation and child abuse cases.”

“My guess is that will be a very tough public explanation for them. So, give me the names and the providers that you are having a hard time dealing with. And I may not be able to make them stop doing it, but I can make them come and explain why they are doing it.”

“And my guess is they won’t want to do that.”

President Donald Trump To Take Action On NAFTA Soon: Re-negotiation or Full Repeal?

President Donald Trump signed an executive memorandum on Thursday ordering the Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross to investigate steel imports. But he also previewed action on NAFTA.

“The fact is, NAFTA, whether it’s Mexico or Canada, is a disaster for our country,” he said, referring to the North American Free Trade Agreement. “We’ll be reporting back some time over the next two weeks as to NAFTA and what we’re going to do about it.”

Trump specifically cited Canada’s imported dairy products hurting farms in Wisconsin and New York and imports of lumber and timber.

“We’re going to have to get to the negotiating table with Canada very, very quickly,” he said.

A White House aide confirmed to Breitbart News that the president was serious about action on NAFTA in two weeks or less.

“As I traveled the country, I saw the shuttered factories, of the shuttered dreams, and I pledged that I would take action,” Trump said. “And I think it’s probably one of the primary reasons I’m sitting here today as President.

According to the White House, the following people attended the event representing the steel industry and union workers.

The investigation will determine whether foreign steel imports threatens national security under Section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962.

The sordid case behind Jared Kushner's grudge against Chris Christie

By all accounts, Jared Kushner, the husband of President Trump's favorite daughter, has become an extraordinarily powerful man in the White House. To formally appoint Kushner a senior adviser, with a top security clearance, the president sought and received a Justice Department opinion declaring the White House exempt from federal anti-nepotism laws. That meant Kushner could have an official White House title to go along with his trusted-member-of-the-family influence.

But Kushner wielded plenty of power before joining the White House staff. For one thing, he is thought to have been behind the purging of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie from the presidential transition. Of course, Christie, tainted by Bridgegate, had problems of his own. But opposition from Kushner is said to have blocked Christie at key points during the campaign and transition.

Kushner's ire reportedly targeted others, too, for their Christie connections. After Christie was fired from heading the transition, two colleagues Christie had brought into the effort, Mike Rogers and Matthew Freedman, were dumped as well. "Both were part of what officials described as a purge orchestrated by Jared Kushner," the New York Times reported on November 15. "Mr. Kushner, a transition official said, was systematically dismissing people like Mr. Rogers who had ties with Mr. Christie."

The reason for the purging? "As a federal prosecutor, Mr. Christie sent Mr. Kushner's father to jail," the Times noted. Many other sources have confirmed the origin of Kushner's animus was Christie's prosecution of the elder Kushner. But most public mentions of the reason have been as brief as the Times'. It turns out the story behind the story is much longer, and more complicated. And ugly.

Good! Donald Trump Signs Bill to Extend Veterans Choice Program

Obama's VA Exposé: >>>/realnews/345 (https://archive.fo/draER)

President Donald Trump signed a bill to extend the Veterans Choice Program at the Oval Office on Wednesday, inviting influential veterans groups to join him.

“The veterans have poured out their sweat and blood and tears for this country for so long, and it’s time that they’re recognized, and it’s time that we now take care of them, and take care of them properly,” Trump said.

The bill allows veterans to seek private care outside of the VA system, if they live more than 40 miles away from a VA hospital or can’t get an appointment within 30 days. Trump specifically thanked Senator John McCain and Senator Johnny Isakson for their work on the bill, as well as Rep. Phil Roe, the Chairman of the House Committee on Veterans Affairs.

“Some people have to travel five hours, eight hours, and they’ll have to do it on a weekly basis, and even worse than that,” Trump said. “It’s not going to happen anymore.”

Trump was joined by Secretary of Veterans Affairs David Shulkin, who praised the bill.

“This is a good day for veterans,” he said. “This is a great day to celebrate not only what veterans have contributed to the country, but how we’re making things better for them.”

The extension of the bill passed by Congress authorized the sharing of medical records to hospitals outside the VA and modifies the procedures for reimbursement for private hospitals.

Syrian Army Discover NATO Bomb... Dropped By ISIS Drone

The Syrian army shot down an ISIS drone that was reportedly targeting civilians in eastern Syria on Wednesday.

The pro-government National Defense Forces (NDF) downed an ISIS attack drone in the Homs Governorate, the NDF’s official media account reported on Wednesday night.

The drone was reported to be carrying a NATO-Bulgarian GLV-HEF projectile.

Al Masdar News reports: https://archive.fo/ae04w

According to the NDF, their forces in the village of Abu Al-Alaya downed the Islamic State attack drone while it was flying over their positions and bombing civilians in the area.

The bomb used by the Islamic State to attack the civilians of Abu Al-Alaya was identified by the Syrian military as a NATO-sponsored GLV-HEF projectile, which is produced in Bulgaria.

ISIL has been using these projectile bombs to harass the civilians in east Homs and Deir Ezzor for several months now, forcing the Syrian military to constantly monitor these villages and towns in eastern Syria.

According to Russia Insider there’s quite a lot of Bulgarian munitions that have “ended up” in Syria:

On 21 February 2016, the Abkhazian Network News Agency (ANNA News) and Frontinfo posted some footage seemingly filmed near Nabi Younes in Latakia Governorate, Syria. Amongst the footage is a fired cartridge case from a 40 × 46SR mm high explosive fragmentation (HE-FRAG) round produced in Bulgaria. The Arsenal 40×46 RLV-HEF round is of the 40 × 46SR mm calibre common amongst NATO states and other users, and produced widely around the world. The Arsenal RLV-HEF is built around the GLV-HEF projectile which delivers an explosive charge of 40 grams of A-IX-1 (96% RDX phlegmatised with 4% paraffin wax) out to some 400 m. Ammunition of this type is most commonly employed with under-barrel or stand-alone grenade launchers, including multi-shot varieties documented in service with Syrian opposition groups, such as the Croatian RBG-6.

What is particularly interesting about the cartridge case is that it indicates that the round in question was produced in 2014. The presence of this cartridge case in Syria is clear evidence of the recent supply of ammunition during the ongoing fighting in Syria. Whilst perhaps not especially noteworthy in its own right, it is another data point that ARES and other organizations can record.

MS-13 Gang Could Soon Be Designated As A Terrorist Organization... And Treated As One

RELATED: >>534422

Attorney General Jeff Sessions says the MS-13 gang could be designated as a terrorist organization.

Asked by Fox News's Tucker Carlson on Tuesday whether he thinks the designation would be helpful, Sessions replied, “I think so, perhaps. I believe it could qualify for that."

"There are rules that I guess the State Department does to establish that," he added. El Salvador has already designated MS-13 a terrorist group.

Sessions called the gang "one of the most violent gangs in the history of our country."

“We can devastate this gang. We’re going after them," he said. "We’re not going to allow them to take over a block, a corner of our communities and terrorize people with this violence.”

This of-course struck globalists' nerves because this has been their subversive, treasonous plan to deliberately destabilize the United States via total amnesty / open borders.

Speaking to a meeting of the Organized Crime Council on Tuesday, Sessions blamed open borders and lax immigration enforcement for the growth of the crime gang, which was founded in Los Angeles in the 1980s by Central American immigrants mostly from El Salvador.

He said his Justice Department would have "zero tolerance" for the gang violence.

"We cannot allow this to continue. We will secure our border, expand immigration enforcement and choke off supply lines," said Sessions.

Members of MS-13, or Mara Salvatrucha, are known for their violent methods and fierce gang loyalty. According to the National Gang Intelligence Center, MS-13 has more than 10,000 members in the United States, and more than 30,000 worldwide.

JUSTICE RETURNS! NYPD Boss Jailed For 28 Years By Elite Pedophile Ring Investigators

Alberto Randazzo, a former New York City Police Department boss, was sentenced to 28 years in prison for sexual exploitation of children and receipt of child pornography, as the Trump administration’s investigation into the elite pedophile ring that has infiltrated politics and law enforcement nationwide continues taking down high-profile perpetrators.

Randazzo was caught targeting mothers, persuading them to sexually abuse their children and send him pictures and videos of the acts.

The federal investigation into the elite pedophile ring is moving full steam ahead and heavy hitters have been employed to lead prosecutions. Randazzo’s sentence was announced by Bridget M. Rohde, Acting United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, Angel M. Melendez, Special Agent-in-Charge, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), New York, and James P. O’Neill, Commissioner, New York City Police Department (NYPD).

“Alberto Randazzo lived a double life, publicly serving as an NYPD police officer while privately engaging in conduct to exploit the most vulnerable members of the community – our children,” stated Acting United States Attorney Rohde. “Together with our law enforcement partners we will continue to strive to protect the most vulnerable among us.”

Special Agent-in-Charge Melendez said the days of elite pedophiles getting away with their heinous crimes because of their positions in society are officially over.

“Randazzo held a position with the sole purpose to serve and protect the people of this city. Instead, he targeted certain women, persuaded them to sexually abuse their children and had them send him pictures and videos of the acts,” said Special Agent-in-Charge Melendez.

“His behavior is no less than deplorable. It is with continued joint law enforcement efforts that we can target these types of offenders and ensure that they are punished for their heinous deeds.”

After the conviction, Police Commissioner James P. O’Neill took the opportunity to deliver a shout out to Trump’s team of elite pedophile ring busters.

“Alberto Randazzo’s exploitation of innocent children is unconscionable. I am grateful to our detectives in Internal Affairs, Homeland Security, and the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Eastern District of New York for their work in bringing Randazzo to justice for these horrific crimes,” said O’Neill.

According to the Department of Justice (https://archive.fo/WXnwL): On July 12, 2016, the defendant pleaded guilty to two counts of conspiracy to sexually exploit a child and one count of receipt of child pornography. According to court filings, from as early as 2010 through 2013, Randazzo targeted women through websites such as Ashley Madison and Match.com and persuaded them to sexually abuse children to whom they had access, so he could watch the abuse.

Randazzo was caught in February 2013, when a witness found disturbing text messages on Randazzo’s phone and uncovered emails from women sending Randazzo pictures of them molesting their children. When the witness confronted him, Randazzo admitted his sexual interest in mothers having sex with their children.

At sentencing the government presented evidence that at least five women complied with Randazzo’s solicitations and sexually abused children in order to satisfy his sexual desires. Randazzo’s victims ranged in age from a few months to eight years old, and he traveled out of state to watch two of them be molested in person. Randazzo arranged to have the eight-year-old victim drugged so that he would not remember the abuse.

Good! Criminal Charges Filed Against Obama's IRS Thug Lois Lerner

House Republicans are filing criminal charges against former IRS director Lois Lerner for using her position within the department to punish conservative groups and give liberal groups a free ride.

Rep. Peter Roskam (R-IL) appeared on Fox Business on Thursday morning to discuss recent developments on Capitol Hill, and announced the new criminal charges against the former IRS director.

“The Obama administration was very dismissive about the crimes that we believe Lois Lerner committed,” Roskam said.

“Those are strong words that I am using, but the House Ways And Means Committee voted out a criminal referral to the Department of Justice which was completely dismissed by the Department of Justice. President Obama was on television at one point, in the midst of the investigation, and he said ‘there’s not a smidgeon of wrongdoing here.’”

“We think Lois Lerner did particularly two things wrong. Number one, she denied people due process and equal protection of the law based on their political philosophy. We are convinced there is overwhelming evidence to suggest that that is true, and that’s a felony.

“Number two, we believe she lied to the Inspector General of the Treasury Department while they were investigating that very thing.”

“What we want is a new Justice Department to take a fresh look at this while we are well within the statute of limitations and if the can, to move forward with the prosecution.”

For years Lerner operated within the IRS under the protection of President Obama and Loretta Lynch’s Department of Justice. Obama openly attacked anyone who dared criticize her, and the DOJ dismissed criminal charges against the rogue anti-conservative IRS employee.

Those days are over. House GOP lawmakers have compiled a damning case and have presented it to Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and unlike Loretta Lynch, who stonewalled the prosecution, Sessions is said to be excited about pushing the “very strong” case forward.

Sleepwalking Toward World War III: Next 25-year Cycle of Mass Suffering and Death Begins NOW

Sleepwalking Toward World War III: Next 25-year Cycle of Mass Suffering and Death Begins NOW

BE PREPARED FOR THE WORST: >>>/32/3460

http://www.naturalnews.com/2017-04-09-sleepwalking-toward-world-war-iii-like-clockwork-the-next-25-year-cycle-of-mass-human-suffering-and-death-begins-now.html

America has become a zombie nation of hypnotized, socially-obedient conformist who are so disconnected from reality that when the bombs start falling, they won’t have any idea how they’ve been programmed to celebrate it all. Heavily dosed with medication, fluoride and heavy metals in vaccines, the American masses have become sleepwalking automatons… conformist consumers of hilariously fictional propaganda parading around as “real news” on CNN, which has now resorted to displaying staged photos of maimed children to invoke the necessary reactionary emotional support to demand WAR.

Yet the snowflake zombies who pretend to be interested in global justice for children have no idea how they’re being insidiously manipulated. They don’t even really know what war looks like. They’ve never lived through war, witnessed war or dealt with the aftermath of war. And they’ve never, of course, been bombed with nukes or blown to pieces by a Tomahawk missile, so the physical reality of all this seems hopelessly remote to them all. “War” is something that happens to other people in far away lands, they believe, not here at home among the snowflake social justice Zombiellenials at UC Berkeley.

It is with this sense of sheer oblivion that the American masses are sleepwalking toward World War III. Even as Russia has mastered the development of Mach-nine cruise missile “ship destroyer” missiles while China is deploying satellite killing ground-based laser systems that can take out most of the military logistics infrastructure in mere hours, the American people live out their days under the delusional impression that nothing bad can ever happen here. This is America, after all. Nobody bombs us! WE do the bombing to THEM, not the other way around.

The American masses are oblivious to how they’re being manipulated.

America is a deluded nation obsessed with celebrity fashion, sports, food, entertainment and recreational drugs. Almost nothing that passes through the minds of most Americans is rooted in reality. It’s all twisted narrative, social conformity and sheer delusion pretending to be “fact-checked” news. So as the world marches toward a global nuclear conflict with very real consequences, the average American “consumer” — that’s the most accurate term at this point for the mindlessness of the masses — is far more easily swayed by the photo of a chemical weapons-damaged child than by the physical facts involving hydrogen bombs and the half-life of radionuclides. The idea that America’s present actions could lead us to a nuclear conflict that might make vast regions of America uninhabitable for three centuries has never occurred to the common person.

The rest of us — that’s you and me — therefore find ourselves living among a global suicide cult called “humanity,” where the delusional mob celebrates the very actions that are leading us toward global nuclear disaster. “Washington’s military attack on Syria is unambiguously a war crime,” writes Paul Craig Roberts, a former Reagan administration official. “It occurred without any UN authorization or even the fake cover of a ‘coalition of the willing.’ Washington’s attack on Syria occurred in advance of an investigation of the alleged event that Washington is trying to use as its justification. Indeed, Washington’s story of Syrian use of chemical weapons is totally implausible. All chemical weapons were removed from Syria by Russia and turned over to the US and its European allies. Syria has no such weapons and has no reason to use them and every reason not to.”

The provocation has already thrust America into an escalation that risks an outbreak of global nuclear war. Via Zero Hedge:

A statement issued on Sunday by a joint command centre consisting of forces of Russian, Iran and allied militia alliance supporting Syrian President Bashar al Assad said that Friday’s US strike on the Syrian air base crossed “red lines” and it would “respond with force” to any new aggression while increasing their level of support to their ally.

Meanwhile, tech giants like Facebook are so committed to the total destruction of the human race that they’re now banning sharing of most posts across the entire independent media, banishing any ideas that question the laughably fake narratives of the status quo. What’s left on the table for online consumers to swallow is nothing more than mainstream fake news, the purpose of which is to keep the zombies spoon fed with enough emotionally-charged propaganda so that when war is unleashed, they’ll cheer.

Scientists find Earth-like planet with an atmosphere just 39 light-years away

>If you’re looking for an Earth-like planet with an atmosphere, you need only go outside. Alternatively, you could travel some 39 light-years toward the constellation Vela. That’s where astronomers have discovered an exoplanet called GJ 1132b, which appears to have an atmosphere. While it might not be particularly hospitable to human life, some other organism might find it quite cozy.

Detection of GJ 1132b was accomplished with the transit method, which watches for dips in light as a planet passes between its star and Earth. The new analysis of GJ 1132b was led by John Southworth, an astrophysicist at Keele University in the UK. After the initial discovery, Southworth began working on a modification of the transit observation that could detect an envelope of gas around the exoplanet. The team found a measurable dip in “z-band” light during GJ 1132b transits. This absorption of this near-infrared wavelength of light indicates that GJ 1132b most likely has an atmosphere.

The existence of an atmosphere around GJ 1132b isn’t all good news for habitability. There’s likely a greenhouse effect of some sort, which would push the temperature even higher. It’s safe to say that even the advent of interstellar travel would not make GJ 1132b a suitable vacation spot. However, this could have huge implications for habitability elsewhere in the universe. Red dwarfs are the most common type of star in the observable universe. If this exoplanet orbiting a red dwarf has an atmosphere, many others do too. Maybe some of them are more pleasant and legitimately Earth-like than GJ 1132b.

Simply being able to confirm an atmosphere around an exoplanet is a big step forward in the search for extraterrestrial life. The existence of life on a planet will likely have an effect on the atmosphere, which is something we may be able to detect. Our method would need to be much more sensitive first. It’s possible the James Webb Space Telescope will be able to gather data on the composition of exoplanet atmospheres when it launches in a few years.

Crazy Tranny Wasting a Shit Ton of Money to Run for Mormon Utah Congressional Seat

Utah voters picked a historic, and largely unknown, Democratic candidate to challenge Sen. Mike Lee this November.

Misty K. Snow is the first TRANNY nominee from a major party to run for a U.S. Senate seat and HE is among the first TRANNY people to run for Congress. Misty Plowright, a TRANNY MAN, claimed the Democratic nomination in Colorado's conservative 5th House District on Tuesday. And back in 2000, TRANNY Karen Kerin ran as a Republican against then-Rep. Bernie Sanders, an independent in Vermont.

"A lot of people have told me whether I win or lose, I'm already making a difference just by running," Snow said.

Throughout the primary, the 30-year-old Salt Lake City resident has given scant attention to HIS potentially historic status. HE instead has campaigned on a progressive platform and promised to aggressively challenge Lee, whom HE has repeatedly called "loathsome."

In unofficial primary returns, Snow had a 59.4 percent to 40.6 percent lead over Jonathan Swinton.

A marriage therapist, Swinton is 35 years old and Mormon. He described himself as a conservative Democrat who sought to govern as a centrist, similar to former Rep. Jim Matheson and Doug Owens, who is running against Rep. Mia Love, R-Utah, for the second time.

Snow jumped in the race shortly before the filing deadline because HE wanted to offer an alternative to Swinton. And while Swinton led in the state convention, Snow notched enough support to force a primary, largely by criticizing Swinton for advocating for limits to abortion rights.

It appears Utah Democrats were similarly eager to try a different approach against Lee, one of the nation's most conservative senators. Lee faced no challenge from within his party as he seeks a second six-year term.

Swinton said the results were "discouraging."

"We hoped more Democrats were really looking at the long game at this, trying to unseat Mike Lee," he said. "The reality is I've done my absolute best and run an honorable campaign."

Snow credited HIS primary election performance to HIS focus on "issues that Democrats care about."

She has called for a $15 per hour minimum wage, paid family leave, legalized marijuana, criminal-justice reform and free or reduced tuition for higher education, a platform inspired by presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt. HE said HIS goal is to boost working-class people such as HIMself. HE’S employed as a cashier at a Harmons grocery and hasn't gone to college, partly due to the cost and partly because HE wasn't sure what career path HE would like to take. Now HE’S seeking to become a federal lawmaker.

Snow began living openly as MAN in October 2014 and believes being a TRANNY person, a rarity in U.S. politics, will drum up attention and campaign money, while HIS TRANNY-inspired run will fire up Democrats and some independents.

A poll in early June, commissioned by The Salt Lake Tribune and the Hinckley Institute of Politics, found that Lee holds a 51 percent to 37 percent lead on Snow. National political handicappers expect Utah's Senate seat to stay in GOP hands, but Snow believes HE’S in a strong starting position, particularly because most voters haven't heard of HIM.

Venezuela Reminds Us That Socialism Frequently Leads to Dictatorship (Repost)

RELATED: >>>/realnews/349

On March 29, the Supreme Court of Venezuela dissolved the country's elected legislature, allowing Venezuela's top court to write future laws. The court is filled with allies of Venezuela's socialist president, Nicolas Maduro, while the legislature is dominated by Maduro's opponents, and the court's ruling was seen as the latest step on Venezuela's descent into a full-fledged dictatorship. But following international outcry—as well as the appearance of cracks within Maduro's own party—the court reversed itself just a few days later, on April 1.

Thus, the uneasy standoff between Venezeula's legislature and executive is set to continue. Last week's episode is only the latest reminder of the tendency of socialism to lead to dictatorship, as identified by the Nobel Prize-winning economist Friedrich Hayek in The Road to Serfdom.

In 1944, when he wrote his book, Hayek noted that the crimes of the German National Socialists and Soviet Communists were, in great part, the result of growing state control over the economy. As he explained, growing state interference in the economy leads to massive inefficiencies and long queues outside empty shops. A state of perpetual economic crisis then leads to calls for more planning.

But economic planning is inimical to freedom. As there can be no agreement on a single plan in a free society, the centralization of economic decision-making has to be accompanied by centralization of political power in the hands of a small elite. When, in the end, the failure of central planning becomes undeniable, totalitarian regimes tend to silence the dissenters—sometimes through mass murder.

Hayek was fortunate enough to live to see the defeat of both the Nazi and Soviet totalitarian regimes. Unfortunately, there are still places where Hayek's most dire warnings remain relevant. Nicolas Maduro's Venezuela is one such place.

Beginning in 1999, when Maduro's predecessor, the late Hugo Chavez, became President, the government has played an ever-increasing role in the Venezuelan economy. Price and wage controls were put in place, trade was restricted, and private property was expropriated—often without compensation. Partly as a result of those economically illiterate actions (the fall in the price of oil, which Venezuela depends on, did not have such dire consequences in any other oil-rich country), Venezuela's economy tanked and public opposition to the ruling regime increased. Thus, the 2015 parliamentary election saw the opposition to Maduro's leftist policies capture a super-majority in the country's National Assembly.

Unfortunately, socialism, in spite of its manifest failings and Hayek's warnings, refuses to go away. Wannabe socialists are thus destined to learn not from history, but from their own mistakes. In the meantime, ordinary people suffer.

To give just one example, between 1999, when Hugo Chavez took over as President, and 2016, average per capita income in Venezuela rose by 2 percent. In the rest of Latin America and the Caribbean, it rose by 41 percent. A similar story can be observed in Zimbabwe. Robert Mugabe, Chavez's erstwhile friend, has been in charge of his unfortunate country since 1980. Since then, Africa's income per person rose by 48 percent. In Zimbabwe, a socialist dictatorship, it has declined by 25 percent. Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose:

Catalonia's Leadership Vows to Hold Independence Referendum in 2017

The Catalonian authorities announced Wednesday they will not step back on their pledge to hold an independence referendum in 2017.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Catalonia’s President Carles Puigdemont and Vice President Oriol Junqueras made a joint statement on Wednesday in which they promised not to go back on their pledge of holding a referendum on Catalonia’s independence from Spain later this year.

“There is only one thing which we will not do: refrain from voting this year,” Puigdemont and Junqueras said in an article published in French Le Soir newspaper.

The leaders added that it was not the differences of Spain and Catalonia which attribute to the desired separation, but rather the “absence of agreement to solve them.”

In late September 2016, Puigdemont pledged to look for an agreement on independence from Spain. Shortly afterwards, the Catalan parliament voted in favor of two resolutions: one which called on the regional government to hold an independence referendum in the fall of 2017, and a second which aimed at coordinating the autonomous community's conduct with the central Spanish authorities.

In March, Catalonia approved a draft budget which included an allocation of 5.8 million euros ($6.2 million) toward the preparations for the independence referendum this year. The Spanish government decided to challenge the budget and launched a probe into the actions of the Generalitat, Catalina's government.

On November 9, 2014, about 80 percent of the Catalans who took part in the non-binding referendum on the region's status as part of Spain voted in favor of Catalonia becoming an independent state. Madrid declared the referendum unconstitutional.

Trump to Send Up To 50,000 Troops To Syria

Trump may send pp To 150,000 50,000 ~~troops To Syria

It appears that Mike Cernovich, who earlier this week wrote that Trump's national security advisor, Gen. H.R.McMaster, was planning on sending as many as 150,000 troops to Syria, may have been right again. According to Bloomberg commentator Eli Lake, who has now made a habit of confirming Cernovich "conspiracy theories" (he did so previously with the Susan Rice scoop), Trump may be on the verge of escalating the proxy war in Syria by sending anywhere between 10,000 and 50,000 troops on the ground, and - if Cernovich is indeed correct - as much as three times more.

Per Lake, after U-turning on attacking Syria last week and on a variety of economic policies yesterday, the Donald Trump's "biggest foreign policy surprise may be yet to come." Specifically, he says that McMaster, has been quietly pressing his colleagues to question the underlying assumptions of a draft war plan against the Islamic State that would maintain only a light U.S. ground troop presence in Syria." McMaster's critics inside the administration say he wants to send tens of thousands of ground troops to the Euphrates River Valley. His supporters insist he is only trying to facilitate a better interagency process to develop Trump's new strategy to defeat the self-described caliphate that controls territory in Iraq and Syria."

To be sure, there have been ground troops, typically special forces, in Syria since 2014, when Barack Obama famously flipflopped on his own promise of "no more boots on the ground", first in Iraq and then the broader region. However, the U.S. presence on the ground has been much smaller and quieter than more traditional military campaigns, particularly for Syria. As Lae puts it, "It's the difference between boots on the ground and slippers on the ground."

Well, the boots are coming, even if that means Trump gets to flip on yet another promise: Trump told Fox Business this week that that would not be his approach to fighting the Syrian regime: "We're not going into Syria," he said.

According to Gen. McMaster "we are", and it's only a matter of time.

As Lake explains, McMaster himself has found resistance to a more robust ground troop presence in Syria. In two meetings since the end of February of Trump's national security cabinet, known as the principals' committee, Trump's top advisers have failed to reach consensus on the Islamic State strategy. The White House and administration officials say Secretary of Defense James Mattis, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Joseph Dunford and General Joseph Votel, who is in charge of U.S. Central Command, oppose sending more conventional forces into Syria.

An interesting aside: according to a Lake source, Stephen Bannon had "derided" McMaster to his colleagues as trying to start a new Iraq War. Bannon's opposition to yet another US conflict - one which would have the clear goal of replacing the Assad regime - may explain why the former Breitbart head is on his way out.

Vaccination Detoxification: How to Remove Heavy Metals and Other Vaccine Toxins

News Thread 404'd! Repost!

If you choose to vaccinate (or believe you have no choice), it's time to detoxify. This is not an article intended to debate the efficacy of vaccinations, but merely to address the toxicity from vaccinations and advise on elimination of the toxins.

Regardless of what your position on vaccinations is, any rational person cannot deny that the ingredients in vaccines are toxic. In fact, almost every single ingredient in any immunization is toxic to the human body. Besides the vitamins and minerals, nobody in their right mind would drink a concoction with any one or combination of most of the vaccine ingredients (and those vitamins and minerals they add are toxic, too). Most vaccinations are directly injected into our bodies, allowing the ingredients to directly enter the bloodstream, which rationally, seems like an even more dangerous approach.

Vaccine ingredients (adjuvants and preservatives) and substances used in the manufacturing process, including vaccine-production media that are present only in trace quantities, include: sucrose, fructose, dextrose, potassium phosphate, FD&C Yellow #6, aluminum lake dye, fetal bovine serum, sodium bicarbonate, monosodium glutamate, aluminum hydroxide, benzethonium chloride, lactose, aluminum potassium sulfate, peptone, bovine extract, formaldehyde, thimerosal, ammonium sulfate, formaldehyde, glutaraldehyde, bovine extract), calf serum, aluminum phosphate, aluminum hydroxphosphate sulfate, and ethanol. Vaccinations also contain many inorganic minerals, vitamins, amino acids, salts, and sugars.

Much of the vaccine material will not leave the body without assistance, especially with a typical modern lifestyle and diet.

Eat Well

The goal in order to detoxify from vaccinations is to flush the body of toxins, including heavy metals. There are a few good supplements available for chelation, but it can also be done with the right foods. Along with a healthy diet, the best ingredients for a natural heavy metal chelation regimen are chlorella, cilantro, citrus peels, spirulina, and garlic.

Most vegetables have some chelation properties, and eating combinations of vegetables increases their ability to chelate exponentially (this is true for all the health benefits). Make salads with more than ten different vegetables with lots of cilantro, avocado, and garlic every day. Avoid sugar, and avoid any and all refined, processed, manufactured foods.

Fix the Immune System

Sugars are present in vaccines, and sugars suppress the immune system. Sugars also feed parasites, viruses (indirectly), fungus, bacteria, and any other little creature that wants to harm us. These refined sugars travel through the bloodstream to wherever infection can be fed. As mentioned, lots of garlic is recommended, as well as the following supplements: oil of oregano, Echinacea, goldenseal, and goldthread. These supplements, especially when used in conjunction with each other, will help purify the blood, remove toxins, and keep any infectious agent at bay, all while helping to repair the immune system.

In addition to those supplements, a B vitamin complex is recommended for a few weeks after immunizing. Formaldehydes, and metals like mercury and aluminum make assimilating B vitamins more difficult. Until the heavy metals are removed, the solution is to take a high quality B complex supplement and to make sure the digestive system is as healthy as possible.

Drink Lots of fluids, exercise, and Hot & Cold Hydrotherapy

Cranberry stevia lemonade, exercising, and hot & cold hydrotherapy can also be a huge help with detoxifying the body. Regardless of their efficacy, the irony is, the healthier a person is, the less benefit they could possibly derive from vaccines. After this kind of detox (the level of detoxification required to remove the toxins from immunizations) your body will have true immunity for disease. For more on this regimen (cranberry lemonade recipe, hot & cold, supplements etc.), see How to Detoxify from Vaccinations. And checkout this nutrition formula recipe for a multivitamin that helps detox with chlorella, spirulina, and citrus peels.

Donald's Coming For You, Beaner: First DREAMer Protected Under Obama Deported by Trump Today!

Federal agents ignored President Trump's pledge to protect from deportation undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children by sending a young man back to his native Mexico, the first such documented case, a USA TODAY examination of the new administration's immigration policies shows.

After spending an evening with his girlfriend in Calexico, Calif., on Feb. 17, Juan Manuel Montes, 23, who has lived in the U.S. since age 9, grabbed a bite and was waiting for a ride when a U.S. Customs and Border Protection officer approached and started asking questions.

Montes was twice granted deportation protections under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program created by President Barack Obama and left intact by President Trump.

Montes had left his wallet in a friend's car, so he couldn't produce his ID or proof of his DACA status and was told by agents he couldn't retrieve them. Within three hours, he was back in Mexico, becoming the first undocumented immigrant with active DACA status deported by the Trump administration's stepped-up deportation policy.

"Some people told me that they were going to deport me; others said nothing would happen," Montes told USA TODAY in his aunt and uncle's home in western Mexico where he's been staying. "I thought that if I kept my nose clean nothing would happen." He asked that the exact location of their home be withheld.

Since taking office, Trump has followed through on his campaign pledge to crack down on illegal immigration by signing executive orders to step up enforcement against the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the U.S. The new policy calls for expanding the criteria for detaining and deporting undocumented immigrants and hiring thousands of new agents.

Yet Trump declined to revoke the DACA protections Obama had granted to more than 750,000 undocumented immigrants, repeatedly saying he had a soft spot for these young people who are leading productive lives and have few, if any, ties to the countries of their birth.

"They shouldn't be very worried," he told ABC News in January. "I do have a big heart."

Even so, DACA enrollees are being targeted by immigration authorities.At least 10 are in federal custody, according to United We Dream, an advocacy organization made up of DACA enrollees and other young immigrants.

The group's advocacy director, Greisa Martinez, who has DACA protection, said Montes' case is proof that people like herself are at risk despite what Trump said.

"We've seen Trump and (Department of Homeland Security Secretary) John Kelly say, 'The DACA program is alive and well.' We've seen (House Speaker) Paul Ryan look straight into the eyes of one of our members and say, 'You have nothing to worry about,'" she said. "And then this happens."

Customs and Border Protection said Tuesday it could not discuss Montes' case because of the department's privacy policy.

After USA TODAY published the story, the Department of Homeland Security — which had refused a request for comment for 24 hours — said it could not confirm details of Montes' deportation. Spokeswoman Jenny Burke said the department had no record of him renewing his DACA status after it expired in 2015, even though Montes' attorneys provided a copy of his work authorization card that showed his DACA status was valid through 2018.

A group of attorneys filed a lawsuit in federal court in California on Tuesday requesting that a judge force Customs and Border Protection to release details of the agent's encounter with Montes.

Marielena Hincapié, executive director of the National Immigration Law Center, part of Montes' legal team, said it has requested information for months but has gotten no response.

"Even in this administration, because of Trump's comments about loving these people, the integrity of the government's promises are at stake," Hincapié said. "How does an immigrant family today know that this is not going to happen to them?"

Afghan Villagers Shower Praise on President Trump for MOAB attack on ISIS

"This is the right weapon for the right target," said U.S. Gen. John W. Nicholson, NATO commander in Afghanistan, at a news conference.

The bomb, known officially as a GBU-43B, or massive ordnance air blast weapon, unleashes 11 tons of explosives.

Mufti Khan, a resident of Achin in Nangarhar, said, "It was between seven or eight local time when it happened. The whole house was shaking. When I came out of my house I saw a large fire and the whole area was burning."

Another Achin resident, Mohammad Hakim, voiced his approval for the strike, saying "We are very happy and these kinds of bombs should be used in future as well, so Daesh is rooted out from here," using the Arabic acronym for the Islamic State group.

"They killed our women, youths and elders sitting them on mines. We also ask the Kabul government to use even stronger weapons against them," Hakim added.

The U.S. estimates 600 to 800 IS fighters are present in Afghanistan, mostly in Nangarhar. The U.S. has concentrated heavily on combatting them while also supporting Afghan forces battling the Taliban. President Donald Trump called Thursday's operation a "very, very successful mission."

"I want a hundred times more bombings on this group," said Hakim Khan, 50, a resident of Achin district, the site of the blast.

There was no immediate comment from the Islamic State group on the attack.

Suspected Cartel Man In Border Agent's Murder During 'Fast and Furious' Arrested

The cartel member suspected of shooting and killing Border Patrol agent Brian Terry in 2010 with a gun supplied by the U.S. government was arrested in Mexico Wednesday, senior law enforcement, Border Patrol, and congressional sources told Fox News.

The suspect, Heraclio Osorio-Arellanes, was apprehended by a joint U.S.-Mexico law enforcement task force that included the Drug Enforcement Administration, U.S. Marshals and the Border Patrol Tactical Unit (BORTAC).

A $250,000 reward had been sought for information leading to the arrest of Osorio-Arellanes, who was captured at a ranch on the border of the Mexican states of Sinaloa and Chihuahua. U.S. authorities have said they will seek his extradition.

Terry was killed on Dec. 14, 2010 in a gunfight between Border Patrol agents and members of a five-man cartel "rip crew," which regularly patrolled the desert along the U.S.-Mexico border looking for drug dealers to rob.

The agent's death exposed Operation Fast and Furious, a Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) operation in which the federal government allowed criminals to buy guns in Phoenix-area shops with the intention of tracking them once they made their way into Mexico. But the agency lost track of more than 1,400 of the 2,000 guns they allowed smugglers to buy. Two of those guns were found at the scene of Terry's killing.

The operation set off a political firestorm, and then-Attorney General Eric Holder was held in contempt of Congress after he refused to divulge documents for a congressional investigation.

Four members of the "rip crew" already been sentenced to jail time in the U.S. Manual Osorio-Arellanes was sentenced to 30 years in federal prison after pleading guilty to first-degree murder in February 2014.

In October 2015, Ivan Soto-Barraza and Jesus Sanchez-Meza were convicted by a federal jury of nine different charges, including first-degree murder and attempted armed robbery.

Rosario Rafael Burboa-Alvarez, accused of assembling the "rip crew," was sentenced to 27 years in prison after striking a plea agreement with prosecutors.

The last remaining member of the "rip crew," Jesus Rosario Favela-Astorga, is believed to still be at large.

Pakistani Man Pleads Guilty to Smuggling Illegals Into US

A Pakistani national pleaded guilty in a District of Columbia federal court to a charge of smuggling illegal aliens from Pakistan and other countries into the U.S.

Sharafat Ali Khan, a 32-year-old citizen of Pakistan and former Brazilian resident, pleaded guilty before District of Columbia District Court Judge Reggie Walton to one count of conspiracy to smuggle undocumented migrants into the United States for profit. Khan worked with other conspirators to create a complex human smuggling network to move illegal immigrants from Afghanistan, Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, and other countries through Brazil to Central American and Mexico before crossing the borders into the U.S., information obtained by Breitbart Texas from the Department of Justice and U.S. immigration and Customs Enforcement revealed.

Court documents obtained by Breitbart Texas (attached below) exposed the complexity of Khan’s smuggling operation. Kahn and his conspirators forced many of the smuggled immigrants of the immigrants to travel in dangerous conditions in journey’s lasting up to nine months. Kahn received between $3,000 and $15,000 USD per immigrant as a fee for conducting the smuggling operation. Immigrants would be forced to pay additional fees along the way to various conspirators of the smuggling network. While not specifically stated in the court documents, Kahn and his conspirators likely have worked with Mexican drug cartels during the final parts of their trip.

The immigrants listed in the indictment and criminal complaint entered the U.S. through Texas and California. Their smuggling routes would take them from their home countries to Dubai – Brazil – Peru – Ecuador – Colombia – Panama – Costa Rica – Nicaragua – El Salvador – Guatemala – and into Mexico before they would cross the U.S. border. Their trips included travel by air, sea, and land. Kahn’s conspirators forced many of the travelers to take a dangerous hike through the Darién Gap along the border between Colombia and Panama. Prosecutors stated the Darién Gap is a “dangerous, wild tropical forest area that stretches approximately 100 miles from the north to south coast of Panama.” The jungle stretches the breadth of the country and is not accessible by vehicle. The aliens received little food or water for their journey which would take up to ten days to complete.

OutsideOnline.com called the Darien Gap, the “world’s most dangerous jungle.” Writer Jason Motlagh investigated the smuggling route at about the same time Kahn sent his human cargo through the jungle. He wrote:

For centuries the lure of the unknown has attracted explorers, scientists, criminals, and other dubious characters to the Gap, a 10,000-square-mile rectangle of swamp, mountains, and rainforest that spans both sides of the border between Colombia and Panama. Plenty of things here can kill you, from venomous snakes to murderous outlaws who want your money and equipment. We’ve come to find the most improbable travelers imaginable: migrants who, by choice, are passing through the Darién region from all over the world, in a round-about bid to reach the United States and secure refugee status.

As traditional pathways to the U.S. become more difficult, Cubans, Somalis, Syrians, Bangladeshis, Nepalis, and many more have been heading to South American countries and traveling north, moving overland up the Central American isthmus. The worst part of this journey is through the Gap. The entire expanse, a roadless maze that travelers usually negotiate on foot and in boats, is dominated by narco traffickers and Cuba-backed guerrillas who’ve been waging war on the government of Colombia since 1964. Hundreds of migrants enter each year; many never emerge, killed or abandoned by coyotes (migrant smugglers) on ghost trails.

JUSTICE RETURNS! Illegal Arrested In Kansas For Voter Fraud

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach said Wednesday that he has obtained his first conviction of a person who illegally voted in a Kansas election without being a U.S. citizen.

Kobach, who has advised President Donald Trump on immigration and voter fraud, said that Victor David Garcia Bebek has pleaded guilty to voter fraud.

Kobach, a Republican, is the only secretary of state in the country with the authority to prosecute voter fraud.

“No matter how many cases we prosecute the political left will always whine that there’s not enough cases to justify protecting our elections in this way,” Kobach said in a phone interview. “That’s absurd.”

The conviction of Bebek was the eighth for Kobach since he gained the authority to prosecute voter fraud in 2015, his office said.

As of this March, 1,788,673 people were registered to vote in Kansas.

Kobach said the others were convictions of people who “double-voted” or were citizens who voted in Kansas and another state.

“This conviction shows how important prosecutorial authority is,” Kobach said.

Lawmakers, Experts Say Texas Grid Vulnerable To EMP Attack

Texas lawmakers and national security experts say the state’s electric power grid — which is independent of the rest of the nation’s power grid — is vulnerable to a nuclear electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack, which could have devastating effects on both the state and the nation.

Six members of the Texas state Senate, including members of both parties, are co-sponsoring legislation that — if passed — would begin taking steps to secure the state’s electric power grid from an EMP attack, an event that former CIA director James Woolsey and other national security experts have said is a real and credible threat both for Texas and for the country as a whole.

“The electric power grid is vulnerable to what legitimate experts classify as high impact threats,” state Sen. Bob Hall, a co-sponsor of Senate Bill 83, said while introducing the bill before the Senate Committee on Business and Commerce on Wednesday — the same day Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said relations between the U.S. and Russia are “at a low point.” An EMP attack, Hall said, would be the “most debilitating to critical infrastructure because it has the ability to disrupt, disable and irreparably destroy electronics over a wide geographic area.”

“For some, the threat posed by an EMP can be hard to conceptualize,” Hall added. “However, this threat is not science fiction and its consequences cannot be overstated.”

“Electricity is the third most important thing to sustaining life. The only two things more important to sustaining life are air and water,” added Hall, a former Air Force officer and engineer. “This bill would provide our state with a golden opportunity to ensure that when the lights go out in the rest of the country, they stay on in Texas.”

The bill would create a task force to assess vulnerabilities in the state’s electric grid and make recommendations on how to secure the grid against attack by September 1, 2018 at the latest.

“America’s adversaries recognize the advantage of electromagnetic pulse and promote it as a 21st century means of attack. Iran mentions EMP over twenty times in its military doctrine,” David Grantham, a fellow at the Dallas-based National Center for Policy Analysis, told The Daily Caller. “Evidence suggests that North Korea even simulated an EMP attack in 2013.”

Grantham was one of several national security experts to testify on Wednesday in favor of securing Texas’ power grid from an EMP attack.

Dr. Peter Pry, chief of staff for the Congressional EMP Commission, testified in support of the bill, which he called “vital to the security of Texas as well as the nation.”

“One of the things that’s new in the EMP world is the military doctrines of our potential adversaries,” Pry said. “They don’t plan to come after us just with nuclear EMP — it’s a combination of all these threats: physical sabotage, cyberattacks and EMP.”

Pry named Russia, China, North Korea and Iran as countries that could hit the U.S. with a debilitating EMP attack.

Putin: CIA Could Very Likely Stir WWIII With More False Flags In Syria

Russian President Vladimir Putin claims Russia has evidence that the Trump administration are planning more false flag attacks in Syria in order to oust President Assad.

According to Putin, 95% of the world’s terrorist attacks are orchestrated by the CIA. Last week, the Russian President warned Trump that Russia were fully prepared to engage in war with the U.S. if they continued to bomb Syria based on these false flag attacks.

In a joint press conference with Italian President Sergio Mattarella in Moscow on Tuesday, Putin doubled down on his warning about a military conflict with Russia.

“What America waged in an aggression on Syria is a crossing of red lines. From now on we will respond with force to any aggressor or any breach of red lines from whoever it is and America knows our ability to respond well,” he said.

“We have reports from multiple sources that false flags like this one – and I cannot call it otherwise – are being prepared in other parts of Syria, including the southern suburbs of Damascus. They plan to plant some chemical there and accuse the Syrian government of an attack.“

RT.com reports: https://archive.fo/pcdk1

Damascus denied the allegations, noting that the targeted area may have been hosting chemical weapons stockpiles belonging to Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) or Al-Nusra Front jihadists.

The incident has not been properly investigated as yet, but the US fired dozens of cruise missiles at a Syrian airbase in a demonstration of force over what it labeled a chemical attack by Damascus.

“President Mattarella and I discussed it, and I told him that this reminds me strongly of the events in 2003, when the US representatives demonstrated at the UN Security Council session the presumed chemical weapons found in Iraq. The military campaign was subsequently launched in Iraq and it ended with the devastation of the country, the growth of the terrorist threat and the appearance of Islamic State [IS, formerly ISIS] on the world stage,” he added.

Legendary Anchor Bill O'Reilly FIRED from Fox News

Bill O'Reilly is leaving the Fox News Channel, the network's parent company announced today.

Scores of advertisers pulled their spots from his show in the days following the Times' story.

ABC News has not been able to independently verify claims made in the Times story.

After the Times investigation, O’Reilly wrote on his website that "like other prominent and controversial people," he is "vulnerable to lawsuits from individuals who want me to pay them to avoid negative publicity.”

O'Reilly also wrote that the time that he was "a father who cares deeply for my children and who would do anything to avoid hurting them in any way" and therefore he had to "put to rest any controversies to spare my children.”

Trannys Now Bringing Law Suits for the Right to Redact Birth Certificates, Erase Past Lives

On Tuesday, a transgender woman in Iowa filed a lawsuit against the state over the right to correct her birth certificate. The woman, identified only by the initials F.V., filed her suit with Lambda Legal to challenge the state's refusal to allow trans people to correct the gender on their birth certificates.

The lawsuit, which Lambda Legal has shared, alleges that the woman has been humiliated as a result of not being able to correct her birth certificate, having been called "tranny" and "faggot" in a federal social security office.

"The incorrect gender on F.V.’s birth certificate has exposed her to hostility when she visited the social security office," the lawsuit states. "After seeing her birth certificate, staff at the office referred to her as a 'tranny,' a derogatory term that disclosed F.V.’s transgender status to others in the waiting area. One of these individuals then called F.V. a 'faggot' as she was leaving the office."

According to the Transgender Center For Equality, Idaho doesn't allow the amendment of gender on a birth certificate, though it does allow people to update their names and genders on driver's licenses.

"Unlike nearly every other state in America, Idaho currently enforces a categorical ban against transgender people changing the gender on their birth certificates, which is an archaic policy that defies logic," Lambda Legal senior attorney Peter Renn said in a statement. "In fact, government officials in Idaho know this, given that they allow transgender people to change the gender on their drivers’ licenses."

The lawsuit argues that not only is it discriminatory and unconstitutional to deny transgender people the ability to obtain accurate birth certificates, it is also a violation of their First Amendment rights.

"This policy is not only archaic and out-of-step with the rest of America but also dangerous," Renn added. "Forcing transgender Idahoans to go through life with inaccurate birth certificates, a basic form of identification, unnecessarily exposes them to discrimination, harassment, and violence. It also denies them their very identity."

"Identity documents communicate to the world who you are. No one should have to represent that they are someone they are not."

F.V., who is now 28 and living in Hawaii, said in a statement that she simply wants to be able to be recognized for who she is.

“I just want a birth certificate that accurately reflects who I am,” she said. “I hope that Idaho will give me the dignity of deciding when complete strangers get to know deeply private information about my life. Like so many transgender people, I’ve been on the receiving end of harassment and outright violence. It costs Idaho nothing to correct this piece of paper and recognize me as the woman that I am."

CRAZY! MSNBC Host Calls For ISIS To Bomb Trump Tower

Sponsored by >>>/crazynews/

In another extraordinary outburst, MSNBC “counter-terrorism analyst” Malcolm Nance called on the Islamic State to bomb a building owned by Donald Trump in the Turkish city of Istanbul.

Responding to a photo of a Trump property in Istanbul, Nance tweeted: “This is my nominee for the first ISIS suicide bombing of a Trump property.” He later deleted the tweet but has yet to issue an apology or explanation.

In the run-up to last year’s presidential election, Nance described Donald Trump as the “ISIS candidate,” and following his victory, predicted that Donald Trump’s security and military advisors would lead to “the end of U.S.-Middle East relations as it exists today.” He also questioned whether Trump’s victory meant America was “teetering on the edge of fascism.”

Looks like another American doesn't even know the real definition of fascism, how sad.

Despite being a counter-terrorism expert, Nance also has a history of denying terrorist acts’ connection to Islamism, describing the terrorist responsible for the bulldozing of civilians with a truck in Nice as “mentally unstable,” Orlando nightclub shooter Omar Mateen as suffering from a “physchosexual problem,” and the San Bernadino mass shootings as “a hybrid act of terrorism/workplace violence.”

Nance’s comments also come at a time of a rising Islamist terror threat in Turkey, as the country’s President Recep Erdoğan turns the country into a religious state. In 2016 alone, the country was the target of dozens of terror attacks, ranging from car bombs to nightclub shootings.

Clinton-Connected Lobbying Firm Registers As Foreign Agent Of Pro-Putin Ukrainian Group

RELATED: >>>/totalnews/129 (https://archive.fo/XtDrL)

A lobbying firm closely allied with Hillary Clinton has registered as a foreign agent for a Ukrainian organization with ties to Russia’s president, Vladimir Putin.

Paul Manafort, the former campaign chairman for Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, also plans to register with the Justice Department for work he did for the same group, the European Centre for a Modern Ukraine.

A spokesman for Manafort made the announcement just after the Associated Press reported that the Podesta Group has registered with the Justice Department under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) for work done for the European Centre between 2012 and 2014.

The Podesta Group, which received $1.2 million for the work, is operated by Tony Podesta, a major Democratic donor and the brother of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.

The AP first reported Manafort’s and Podesta Group’s work for the European Centre last summer. The group is reportedly controlled by Viktor Yanukovych, the former president of Ukraine and a close ally of Putin’s. Manafort has done other consulting work for Yanukovych and reportedly oversaw that work done by Podesta Group and another lobbying firm, Mercury Public Affairs.

Podesta Group and Mercury Public Affairs, another lobbying firm that consulted for the European Centre, initially disclosed their work to the U.S. Senate under the Lobbying Disclosure Act. That law has fewer disclosure requirements than FARA.

The Podesta Group claimed last year that it did not register under FARA because the firm was assured by its partners that the European Centre was not working for or on behalf of a foreign government.

But a spokeswoman for the Podesta Group now tells the Associated Press that the firm is registering under FARA because of “information brought to light in recent months.”

This is not the first time the Podesta Group has been forced to register retroactively under FARA.

The firm registered under FARA in November for work it did for the Indian government in 2014 and 2015. Emails hacked from John Podesta’s Gmail account showed that Tony Podesta asked for help for a representative of the Indian government.

Fascist NASA SWAT Team Made 75yo Pee Her Pants During 'Sting' Over Moon Rock

A 75-year-old grandmother has been raided and humiliated by NASA during a sting operation to steal her precious piece of moon rock, left to her by her first husband.

Joann Davis wanted to sell her speck of moon rock to raise money for her grandchildren. She and her first husband used to work for the space program and NASA.

In 2011 the space agency pulled a cruel trick on her to relieve her from her piece of the moon.

Armed NASA agents forced the elderly woman to depart with her moon rock and made her urinate in her pants by refusing her a trip to the bathroom.

Her ordeal lasted for two hours, during a sting operation at the car park of a busy Denny’s restaurant in Lake Elsinore, California.

A federal appeals court has ruled that Davis can sue the federal agent who roughed her up.

When Joann Davis was 75, she hit some hard financial times after finding herself raising grandchildren following her daughter’s death and her son’s illness. So, being the resourceful grandmother that she is, Davis began to think of ways to earn some extra cash.

Then it hit her.

Her first husband, Robert Davis worked as an Apollo 11 engineer, and he saved a paperweight with moon material and another with a bit of the heat shield. Joann, who also worked for the space program at the time, came up with the idea that she’d ask NASA if they’d like to buy it from her, so she could raise some funds to feed her grandchildren.

Brilliant, right?

Well, to most people with common sense, this is a great idea. However, to the American police state, it’s a felony. Now, Davis is attempting to sue officials for the brutal and humiliating treatment she endured at the hands of NASA agents.

The lead agent “organized a sting operation involving six armed officers to forcibly seize a Lucite paperweight containing a moon rock the size of a rice grain from an elderly grandmother,” wrote Judge Sidney Thomas of the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals in the recent decision allowing Davis to sue, per the Los Angeles Times.

Instead of telling Davis that it is against the law to sell moon rocks (yeah, we didn’t know that either), NASA set up an elaborate sting operation to nail this grandma….
