Trump Releases Budget Plan That Slashes Welfare, Medicaid Programs... Bigly

The Trump administration on Tuesday unveiled a budget seeking $1.5 trillion in nondefense discretionary cuts and $1.4 trillion in Medicaid cuts over the course of a decade, while adding nearly half a trillion dollars to defense spending.

The plan, titled “A New Foundation for American Greatness,” would dramatically reshape federal spending, cutting anti-poverty and safety net programs, but leaving Medicare and the retirement portion of Social Security untouched.

Congress is expected to reject many of the proposals as it takes up the budget in the coming weeks and months. It is being released, unusually, with President Trump out of town on his first foreign trip in office.

Relying on a mix of growth projections that most economists say are extremely optimistic and an assumption that a tax reform plan will manage to slash tax rates while remaining revenue-neutral, the budget lays out a path to balance the budget within a decade and lower the debt burden to 60 percent of gross domestic product.

From a budgetary baseline based on the 2011 “sequestration” deal between the GOP House and former President Obama, the Trump budget piles on defense dollars while further cutting nondefense.

By 2027, defense spending would increase $42 billion over sequestration levels, while nondefense would be cut by $260 billion. In that year, nondefense outlays would amount to just 1.4 percent of GDP. The proportion of defense to nondefense discretionary spending would be higher than in the previous 40 years.

Sequestration, when it was ushered in, was meant to use draconian cuts to both defense and nondefense discretionary spending as a cudgel to force Congress to compromise on budget cuts.

In 2018, Trump’s budget would shift $54 billion from nondefense discretionary spending to defense by enacting major cuts to government agencies.

The budget would cut 31.4 percent from the Environmental Protection Agency, 29.1 percent from the State Department, 20.5 percent from the Department of Agriculture and 10.7 percent from the National Science Foundation. It would make Pell grants available year-round, but raise monthly student loan payments.

A sizable portion of the cuts to domestic spending would be made to Medicaid. The budget assumes full passage of the House-passed version of the American Health Care Act (AHCA) to repeal and replace ObamaCare, which cuts $839 billion from Medicaid and pulls funding from Planned Parenthood.

In addition, the budget would make another $610 billion in cuts to Medicaid over 10 years by transitioning the program from a traditional entitlement to either a block grant program or a per-capita program that puts a ceiling on federal Medicaid funding to states. It would also allow states to impose work requirements for certain Medicaid beneficiaries to reduce costs.

Besides the cuts to Medicaid, the budget finds $274 billion in savings over 10 years from spending cuts to anti-poverty programs. These would include $193 billion in cuts to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), $21 billion from Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF).

It also scales back Disability Insurance offered through Social Security, a step critics say breaks Trump’s campaign promise to leave Social Security untouched.

“If you’re on food stamps and you’re able-bodied, we need you to go back to work.”

Sea lion wants loli for a mate,pulls her into water

A bystander captured video Saturday of a sea lion dragging a young girl into the water off a wharf in Richmond, British Columbia.

In the viral video, posted to YouTube,the sea lion swims up to Steveston Fisherman’s Wharf in Richmond, a Vancouver suburb, then approaches a young girl leaning over a low railing over the water. The girl sits on the railing, and the sea lion lunges up, snatches her dress in its mouth and pulls her backward into the water.

Amid screams and cries of “Oh my God,” a man jumps into the water and pulls the girl to safety without further interference from the sea lion. Fujiwara says in his description of the video that no one was injured in the incident.

Sheriff Speaks Up About Radical Terrorism And Aweful, Insane Governmental Policy

An outspoken North Texas lawman took to Facebook after Monday's deadly bombing in England to warn residents a similar attack could happen here.

"This is what happens when you disarm your citizens," Denton County Sheriff Tracy Murphree wrote. "When you open your borders without the proper vetting. When you allow political correctness to dictate how you respond to an enemy that wants to kill you."

At least 22 people were killed and more than 50 were injured in the explosion outside an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester. The Islamic State claimed the attacker — whom police identified as 22-year-old Salman Abedi, who was born in Manchester — as one of its own.

Murphree's post continues: "You better wake up America. While you are distracted by the media and the crying of the left, Islamic Jihadist are among us and want to kill you. What will it take? This happening at a concert in Dallas or a school in Denton County?

"If we don't do something quick this country will die of political correctness and the fear that someone's feelings may be hurt. It may very well be to late for Europe."

Murphree took office in January after campaigning to bring a culture change to the Sheriff's Department. Colleagues have noted better relationships with fellow law-enforcement agencies and more accountability within the department.

Murphree has previously posted about Islamic terrorists, writing in a mock "terror alert" in November that the Islamic State and al-Qaeda are not welcome in Texas — a place with "a proud tradition of courage and strength."

"You will be met with a gun behind every tree every rock every blade of grass," he wrote. "You will be met with a violence you have never seen."

After telling extremists to stay out of Texas, Murphree concluded: "PS. Where your going there are no virgins waiting for you. Just saying."

Refugees Welcome! Ariana Grande Concert Bomber in Manchester, England Was Muslim

RELATED: >>>/realnews/364 (https://archive.fo/klJrs)

CBS News confirmed Tuesday that the man who blew himself up the previous night at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England, was 23-year-old Salman Abedi, who was known to British authorities prior to the attack.

In a generic statement posted online, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) claimed responsibility for Abedi's suicide bomb attack, which left 22 people dead, including children, at one of the entrances to the Manchester Arena.

Police and British Prime Minister Theresa May have done very little to address the real problem of these attacks: open borders and amnesty policy.

ISIS issued its claim of responsibility in a brief, generic statement that did not identify the bomber and appeared to get some of the facts of the attack wrong. It claimed a "caliphate soldier managed to place a number of devices among a gathering of crusaders in Manchester, and detonated them."

Officials say there was only one explosion. So someone had lied already. No doubt this terror attack will be another cover-up swept aside.

At least 22 people - including children - were killed and 119 people were injured just as Ariana Grande finished her set on Monday evening.

Petrified parents clung on to their children as they sprinted out from the venue as the 'callous terrorist attack' took place.

One eyewitness, Abby Mullen, 17, was inside the arena where a suspected lone wolf attack took place and described finding blood in her hair.

Meanwhile, a homeless man tearfully described the moment he cradled a dying woman in his arms after the suicide bomber blew himself up.

Ms Mullen, from Airdrie, North Lanarkshire, said: 'As we were leaving a bomb or explosion went off centimetres in front of me.

'People's skin, blood and feces were everywhere including in my hair and on my bag.

'I'm still finding bits of god knows what in my hair. You never ever expect these things to happen to you but this proves it can happen to anybody.

Horrifying footage showed petrified children leaping over fences as they desperately tried to escape the 21,000-seat venue.

Countries across the world will 'tighten security' and increase their spying and police state pat-downs after a suicide bombing in Britain that killed at least 22 people, but experts say reinforced measures will do little to prevent determined individuals.

Again, this is all part of Western deliberate destabilization policy: allowing illegals, criminals and terrorists to flood across the open borders, unvetted. As long as this amnesty continues, the Western governments are allowing these attacks to continue and citizens need to be pointing the fingers at them for this blatant treason.

It is also documented fact that the CIA and Mossad helped arm and fund Islamic Terrorists in the Middle East in attempt to undermine and overthrow legitimate Middle Eastern governments and leaders such as Bashar Assad.

Collecting Student Loan Debt Costs American Taxpayers More Than Welfare Programs

RELATED: >>539828

Your government at work with your tax dollars.

Loan billions to brain dead teenagers so they can pretend to get smart in college. When they fail miserably due to the fact after twelve years of public school government indoctrination they can’t read, write or add, the government pays slimy collection agencies to get these unemployed dolts to pay up.

Not only has $600 billion of your tax dollars been pissed down the drain on loans to dumbasses, you now get to spend billions trying to collect the billions that will never be collected.

Clusterfuck is too kind of a word to use for this program Obama initiated to pump money into the economy and fake the true unemployment rate.

I bet you can’t wait until the government has full control of your healthcare.

While Congress originally approved the IDR plans in the 1990s and 2000s, Obama used executive actions, starting in 2010, to extend the most-generous terms to millions of borrowers which is precisely when loan volumes under the program started to skyrocket.

Congrats, taxpayers…you'll soon have the privilege of repaying $137 billion worth of debt spent by entitled millennials on binge-drinking trips Cancun and drugs…life, after all, is just a little bit better when we spread the wealth around…

As Bloomberg's Shahien Nasiripour reports, the federal government has, in recent years, paid debt collectors close to $1 billion annually to help distressed borrowers climb out of default and scrounge up regular monthly payments. New government figures suggest much of that money may have been wasted.

Nearly half of defaulted student-loan borrowers who worked with debt collectors to return to good standing on their loans defaulted again within three years, according to an analysis by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. For their work, debt collectors receive up to $1,710 in payment from the U.S. Department of Education each time a borrower makes good on soured debt through a process known as rehabilitation. They keep those funds even if borrowers subsequently default again, contracts show. The department has earmarked more than $4.2 billion for payments to its debt collectors since the start of the 2013 fiscal year, federal spending data show.

The findings, gleaned from the bureau’s analysis of about 600,000 borrower accounts, come as the Trump administration weighs a shakeup of the government’s student loan program. For years, defaults have mounted despite the improving U.S. economy and the money invested in collecting education debt. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos pledged earlier this year to “do a better job” than the Obama administration at managing the department’s loan contractors. Last week, DeVos suggested that the feds should “start afresh.”

Officials at the CFPB say the government should reexamine whether the loan program, and the lucrative contracts it bestows on private firms, is working for the millions of Americans struggling to repay their taxpayer-backed student debt.

“When student loan companies know that nearly half of their highest-risk customers will quickly fail, it’s time to fix the broken system that makes this possible,” said Seth Frotman, the consumer bureau’s top student-loan official.

Debt collectors aggressively angle for new business from the Education Department because the contracts are among the most lucrative in the industry. The government values the latest round at $2.8 billion.

The government often pays debt collectors nearly 40 times what they bring in, federal records show.

Crazy! AntiFA Commie Goes to Turkey With Muslim Loverboy, Gets Raped and Beaten

Sponsored by >>>/crazynews/

Lacy MacAuley is a well known radical left-wing Antifa organizer in Washington D.C. She was featured in Project Veritas’ undercover videos which exposed the #DisruptJ20 plot to violently disrupt President Trump’s inauguration.

Just like every other lunatic leftist, Lacy fell in love with Islam and became obsessed with helping Syrian ‘refugees’, wholeheartedly believing that Islam is the religion of peace. MacAuley details her experience dating a Turkish Muslim man, describing the hell and fear she lived in because he controlled every move she made, beat and raped her.

Islam is still the ‘religion of peace’, eh Lacy?

From Lacy Macauley’s archived blog post: https://archive.fo/BsPWd

I am a radical activist based in Washington DC. I fell in love with an energetic, charismatic activist I met in November when I was present to write about resistance to the G20 Summit, a global event in Antalya, Turkey. After I came home to the US, we talked every day. He was lovely and charming, I thought at the time. He offered a ready smile, engaging kindness, and intelligent conversation. He said all the right things to convince me that he cared about women’s rights and activism. In February, I decided to return to Turkey with the promise of love driving me forward. I couldn’t have known things would turn sour.

The first two weeks were quite the love story. I observed that he was drinking heavily, and called him an “alky,” but it was just a joke at first. We went to the beach and historic sites, and he introduced me to his friends. All seemed to be going well, and I felt that the romance was solidly moving forward.

Then came our first fight. I had wanted to interview a local woman for an article on Syrian refugees. He did not approve. He knew the woman and did not like her, so he strictly forbade me from speaking with her. After I questioned his rationale, he yelled and stormed out of the room to go smoke a cigarette. I just stood in the middle of the room not knowing what to do. Of course, as a Western woman, no one had ever forbidden me from speaking with anyone else. It was a strange feeling: Don’t I have a mouth to speak? Why can I not use it as I wish?

MacAuley brings up feminism 101 which should have prevented her from dating a Muslim in the first place, but liberalism is a mental disorder so we shouldn’t expect her to be thinking logically…

“This is elementary feminism. No man has the power to silence a woman, just because he is a man. How far backwards things would slide in the coming weeks.

What I found over the next few weeks was absolute frustration of my efforts to do my advocacy work. I had put myself in a place of dependence upon a person who, as it turned out, would have liked to keep me by his side and control my every move. He hindered, rather than helped, the work I tried to do there.

MacAuley learned what true Islam is versus what her leftist professors taught her…

“Things deteriorated rapidly. His insecurity and childishness got worse. In the following weeks, I was violently pushed, blocked from leaving freely, and repeatedly told not to speak. If I spoke anyway, anger erupted. I endured threats that I would be burnt with cigarettes, flinching as he “faked” with his lit cigarette. I had to duck to avoid having sharp objects thrown at my face. I had water angrily poured over my head.

Unwanted sex? Rape? All the time. He did not stop to determine whether I consented to sex. Several times, he turned off my wifi and lied about it, a modern-day form of gaslighting. He verbally criticized me for using social media, my main link to the rest of my life back in the US, and tried to discourage me from using it. He forced me to unfriend one Turkish man on Facebook, and wanted me to unfriend many more.

MacAuley was even jailed by Turkish police because she was a Western journalist..

“Two days later, however, I was jailed by Turkish police for several hours when I tried to simply enter a large public speech in Antalya by the president of Turkey. (They make a habit of jailing reporters and activists, and I didn’t look like I fit their norms. I wrote about this experience with the Turkish police here.) I had an “out of the frying pan and into the fire” sensation.

This is leftism in a nutshell.

NRA Sues California Over Unconstitutional Gun & Ammo Bans, Denying 2nd Amendment for Millions

The National Rifle Association is suing the state of California over a law restricting magazine capacity to 10 bullets or less the organization argues is an unconstitutional limitation.

The NRA Institute for Legislative Action (ILA) and the California Rifle and Pistol Association (CRPA) are spearheading the lawsuit, the second launched by the NRA this year against the state. The lawsuit, filed Thursday in federal court in San Diego, is part of the NRA’s efforts to counter an array of new gun laws in California, collectively referred to by Second Amendment enthusiasts as “gunmageddon,” enacted in the wake of the 2015 San Bernardino terrorist attack, reports Los Angeles Times.

The law bans the sale and possession of magazines with an ammunition capacity greater than 10. The NRA argues in the lawsuit, Duncan v. Becerra, the magazine restrictions are unconstitutional, violating the due process clause.

“Legislators in California routinely enact laws that only affect the law-abiding and do nothing to enhance public safety,” Chris Cox, executive director of the NRA-ILA, said in a statement. “This lawsuit, and others that will follow, is an effort to ensure the rights of law-abiding gun owners are respected in California.”

Gun owners have long owned high capacity magazines in California and argue that the state retroactively banning and seizing the property tramples on their due process rights.

The NRA filed their first lawsuit aimed at the restrictive set of gun laws in California April 24, challenging a measure banning the sale and possession of semiautomatic rifles equipped with bullet buttons, which allow the user to change magazines relatively quickly. They argue this is a violation of the taking clause in the constitution, which protects against seizure of private property without just compensation from the government.

Well Well, Say It Ain't So! Droves Of College Graduates Moving Back Home Because Insolvent Debt

America’s twenty-something college graduates are moving back in with their parents in staggering numbers because they cannot otherwise afford the high payments on their student loans.

Almost half of America’s recent college graduates admit that they moved in with their parents for some period of time after getting their diplomas. Also, 26 percent of America’s current college students say their next big step in life after graduation will likely be to return home to their teenage bedrooms — or perhaps a room in the basement.

The data comes from a new survey by the brokerage firm TD Ameritrade, according to USA Today.

Graduates with student loan debt often feel forced to put off buying homes, getting married and saving for retirement because of their monthly loan payments.

Members of America’s millennial generation say they don’t think they’ll be rid of their student loans until they reach the age of 35, according to the TD Ameritrade survey.

The students and recent graduates who participated in the survey range in age from 20 to 26.

A majority said they would feel embarrassed if they were still living at home at age 28. However, about 40 percent said they have no problem sponging off mom and dad until they are well into their thirties.

Fascist Dallas School Police Tase, Strangle, Beat And Handcuff 7-Year-Old Boy For Disrupting Class

A Dallas School District has shipped a 7-year-old special needs student to a mental facility for disrupting class.

7-year-old student Yosio Lopez was first violently restrained by the Dallas Independent School District Police who reportedly handcuffed and tasered him for banging his head against a wall.

CNN reports: https://archive.fo/R3ZPu

Yosio Lopez was handcuffed, Tased and bruised by Dallas Independent School District (DISD) Police after the boy started banging his head against a wall in class, the Lopez family lawyer, David Ramirez, told CNN.

Yosio is a special needs student who suffers from attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder and another mood disorder. He has experienced similar outbursts in the past but has always had a trained school aide nearby to help calm him down.

But last Tuesday, the aide wasn’t there and Yosio didn’t have his “safe place,” Ramirez said.

The boy told his mother, April Odis, that he was put on a desk with his arms cuffed behind his back while the school principal put her elbow on his neck and choked him to restrain him, the family lawyer said.

In a statement about the incident, the school district said in part:

“The Dallas Independent School District is committed to educating the whole child each day, and in doing so, we believe in providing a productive learning environment that is safe for all staff and students. While there has been media interest into an alleged incident at one of our Dallas ISD campuses, due to federal confidentiality laws protecting the privacy of all students and their families, we are unable to publicly confirm or deny the matter reported.”

After the incident at school, Dallas ISD Police transported Yosio to a mental health facility without his mother’s permission and committed him for nearly a week. His mother was unable to visit him for the first two days, Ramirez said.

Yosio was heavily sedated during his stay at Dallas Behavioral Hospital and was restricted from seeing his mother under the claim that he was “a danger to himself and those around him,” according to Ramirez. The child was released Monday night and is at home recovering with his mother.

Environmentalists Ignoring the Elephant in the Room: US Military is the World's Largest Polluter

Environmentalists are ignoring the elephant in the room … the world’s largest polluter.

Newsweek reported in 2014: https://archive.fo/5Wxvd

The US Department of Defence is one of the world’s worst polluters. Its footprint dwarfs that of any corporation: 4,127 installations spread across 19 million acres of American soil. Maureen Sullivan, who heads the Pentagon’s environmental programmes, says her office contends with 39,000 contaminated sites.

Camp Lejeune is one of the Department’s 141 Superfund sites, which qualify for special clean up grants from the federal government. That’s about 10% of all of America’s Superfund sites, easily more than any other polluter. If the definition is broadened beyond Pentagon installations, about 900 of the 1200 or so Superfund sites in America are abandoned military facilities or sites that otherwise support military needs.

“Almost every military site in this country is seriously contaminated,” said John D Dingell, a soon-to-retire Michigan congressman, who served in the Second World War.

The U.S. military is the third-largest polluter of U.S. waterways.

The Washington Post noted Monday: https://archive.fo/Ylbl0

The U.S. military is the single largest consumer of fuel in the world.

We use a highly-polluting form of nuclear power so the U.S. military can make bombs. U.S. military considerations also drive nuclear policy in Japan (that didn’t turn out very well) and other countries.

The government has been covering up nuclear accidents for more than 50 years.

Above-ground nuclear tests – which caused numerous cancers to the “downwinders” – were covered up by the American government for decades. See this, this, this, this, this and this.

At least 33,480 U.S. nuclear weapons workers who have received compensation for health damage are now dead.

And the country’s main storage site for nuclear waste from military production may be in real trouble.

The Pentagon is also one of the largest greenhouse gas emitters in the world … and yet has a blanket exemption from all greenhouse gas treaties.

The defense department also uses open-air burn pits which send a parade of horribles into the air.

Sealife is not exempt. Military sonar kills whales and dolphins.

And the military has long been a flagrant user of chemical weapons and depleted uranium … which can trash ecosystems and human health.

Nazi Cuck converts to Islam and kills two roomates

Police identify suspect, victims in New Tampa shootings

Tampa police have identified a man they say shot two roommates to death, then held hostages briefly in New Tampa on Friday night.

Devon Arthurs, 18, 15350 Amberly Drive, has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder as well as armed kidnapping after he said he killed two men in the Hamptons Condominium, where he lived.

On Sunday, police identified the victims as Jeremy Himmelman, 22, and Andrew Oneschuk, 18. Both were living at 15350 Amberly Drive, Tampa, the same address as the defendant.

About 5:30 p.m., police were called to Green Planet Smoke Shop, 15325 Amberly Drive, where a possibly armed man was reported. Once there, they found Arthurs was armed. He had told two customers and an employee that they could not leave.

Police talked to Arthurs, and he agreed to let the hostages go and to surrender his weapon. He was taken into custody.

While officer interviewed him. Arthurs told them he had killed two people, and told them where the bodies were. Police went to the scene, where they found two bodies suffering gunshot wounds.

The names of the victims have not been released.

Arthurs and the victims apparently were roommates and lived in the condo where the bodies were found, police said. The motive is still under investigation.

Police found possible explosives in the condo. The bomb squad and Tampa Fire Rescue Hazmat Team worked through the night to make sure the condo was safe to enter.

So basically a prominent member of Iron March and AtomWaffen converts to Islam. There was a huge shit flinging forum war over whether or not Muslims should be banned from Iron March and they eventually banned our boy Devon here. It caused a lot of internal drama about whether Muslims should be allowed in the movement and if Devon should be allowed to stay in AtomWaffen. Their leader allows him to stay because he's his best friend and roommate. Then some time later for reasons yet unknown Devon loses his shit and shoots two of his roommates who were fellow members of AtomWaffen.

Taking bets on the media narrative once they find out about his internet nazism.

Greek Government Steal Cash Deposit Boxes, Securities & Homes in Tax-Protest crackdown.

Greek Bankocracy Confiscates everything they can get their hands on from Greek Debt Slaves

Last week, the Greek parliament once again approved more austerity to unlock withheld Greek bailout funds in Brussels: a symbolic move, which has little impact without any actual follow through, like for example, actually imposing austerity. And while Greeks have been very good in the former (i.e. promises), they have been severely lacking in the latter (i.e. delivery).

That may be changing. According to Kathimerini, Greek Finance Ministry inspectors are about to start seeking out the owners of all local undeclared properties, while the law will be amended to allow for financial products and the content of safe deposit boxes to be confiscated electronically. The plan for the identification of taxpayers who have “forgotten” to declare their properties to the tax authorities is expected to be ready by year-end, according to the timetable of the Independent Authority for Public Revenue.

What follows then will be a wholesale confiscation by the government of any asset whose source, origins and funding can not be explained.

The Greek tax authorities will receive support from the Land Register to that end, as by end-September IAPR inspectors are set to obtain access to the company’s database to draw details on properties. Any taxpayers identified as having skipped the declaration of their assets to the tax authorities will be asked to comply and declare them, along with paying the tax and fines dictated by law. Should taxpayers fail to do so, the asset will be "sequestered."

Kathimerini also notes that the IAPR is also waiting for Parliament to pass regulations permitting the mass confiscation of safe deposit box contents and financial assets such as securities.

To date the process has been conducted in handwriting and is therefore particularly slow in locating the assets of taxpayers who have either concealed incomes or have major debts to the state. It is about to get much more streamlined: once the necessary regulations are in place for the operation of an automatic system to collect debts, the tax authorities will be able to issue online confiscation notices and immediately get their hands on the contents of safe deposit boxes, confiscating cash, precious stones, jewelry and so on. They will also be able to confiscate shares and other securities.

This year the tax authorities will focus their efforts on confiscations as they try to reduce the huge pile of expired debts to the state. In this context the Independent Authority for Public Revenue will auction 27 properties belonging to state debtors by the end of next month, with the aim of collecting 2.7 billion euros by the end of the year from old debts and another 690 million euros of new debts from major debtors.

Proposed Section 23-23.8-3. of the Geoengineering Act of 2017 defines the scope of geoengineering to include a ‘laundry list’ of technologies, which may not be familiar to the public; or that those “technological advances” are considered as “intentional manipulation of the environment”! OMG, is that a wakeup call for everyone?

Those technologies considered as intentional manipulation of the environment include:

• Solar Radiation Management (SRM) or what some call “chemtrails”

• Geoengineering ground-based and/or atmosphere-based deployments, including ‘tools’ and vehicles to deploy them, including drones

• Cloud cover protection and cloud whitening

• Space sunshades or sunshields

• Solar shields or atmospheric sunscreens, e.g., reflective particulates like sulfur dioxide and aluminum oxide

• Artificial ionosphere, e.g., high-density plasma cloud

• Ocean fertilization using iron or lime

• Re-icing or cooling the Arctic by artificial means

• Genetically-modified, CO-2-eating, plastic trees

• Carbon black or black carbon releases

• Atmospheric deployment of radiofrequency/microwave radiation

• Aircraft geoengineering activities

Just to mention a few conditions from what’s listed in the bill.

Whoever researched and drafted/wrote bill H6011 really did his/her homework (applause, applause, applause) because the Consequences listed on pages 3 and 4 are something every living being on Planet Earth must know before it’s too late to save the Planet and, specifically, the Planet’s prodigious life forms:

• Global dimming reducing vitamin D absorption for humans and animals

• Reduced photosynthesis

• Local rainfall patterns distribution changes

• Chemical contents of local rainfall

• Contamination of air, water and soil as particulates fall to earth

• Degradation of human, animal and plant health and other living organisms

• Acceleration of biodiversity and species losses

• Less direct sunlight reaching earth [current estimates are 25 to 30% less sunlight reaches earth due to “chemtrail” spraying]

• Increases in acid rain, sulfur and aluminum oxide

• Droughts and flooding

• Increases in ultraviolet radiation (UVA, UVB and/or UVC) reaching earth

• Visibility impairment

• Economic losses too numerous to cite here; read the bill

Sheriff Clarke Vows To Arrest Hillary Clinton If Trump Hires Him As FBI Director

Sheriff Clarke has vowed to arrest Hillary Clinton on the spot if Trump makes him the next FBI Director.

President Trump’s favorite sheriff tweeted the promise late on Tuesday, after James Comey was fired as FBI Director, sparking frenzied speculation regarding who will be tapped to fill the role.

.@SheriffClarke: If Trump made me his FBI Director I would be arresting Hillary Clinton today. pic.twitter.com/XoYxz7xNCI

— Tennessee (@TEN_GOP) May 6, 2017

That’s one hell of a way to throw your hat into the ring.

Sheriff Clarke joins Congressman Trey Gowdy as a popular favorite to replace the disgraced James Comey, as Twitter lit up on Tuesday with endorsements from the public for both candidates.

Should Trump choose either candidate, Hillary Clinton will be guaranteed restless nights as the long-awaited prosecution into her crimes gets taken seriously by an FBI Director concerned with law, order and justice – rather than crony corruption.

As Alexander Hamilton said, “A contempt of the laws is the high road to anarchy,” and neither Clarke nor Gowdy are fans of anarchy.

The fact is, Hillary Clinton’s email scandal and the Clinton Foundation scandal are back in the news, as they are likely to be for years to come. At his confirmation hearing, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said he would recuse himself from all investigations involving the Clintons.

And though President Donald Trump said that his preference was for no further investigation of Hillary Clinton or the Clinton Foundation, this does not mean that a prosecution is not in the works.

Washington Times reports: A decision (which does not seem to have been made yet) not to continue any investigation raises at least three concerns:

1). Deciding whether to prosecute someone isn’t normally the president’s decision to make. It’s the job of “the system.”

“The system” may sound amorphous, but in fact “the system” is what we call “the rule of law.” That rule is not just an arcane concept that interests lawyers and public policy mavens. The rule of law is probably the single most important governing concept we have — far more important than democracy. The rule of law elevates the weakest citizen to the level of the most powerful.

2) Dropping the case raises the question of fairness.

Fairness may be an elusive concept; even so, we tend to know it’s missing when we don’t see it. It is true that it’s not always possible to be fair. Sometime it’s necessary to be just. But in this case, there are people who have done far less than what Mrs. Clinton has already been shown to have done and who have been punished for it. Why should they have to pay a price if she does not? The response that life is not fair does not entirely satisfy.

3) Danger lurks in curtailing the investigation.

Who knows what evils the Clinton Foundation engaged in? The answer is: Many people know — the many people who have been investigating it. They know things. And it is almost inconceivable that there will be no leaks. Those leaks would embarrass Donald Trump for letting Mrs. Clinton escape, even as they would embarrass Mrs. Clinton — always assuming it’s possible to embarrass a Clinton.

The fact is, the leading candidates for FBI Director are all hell bent on prosecuting Hillary Clinton and bringing her and her cronies to justice.

Big Pharma Spokesman Secretly Filmed Saying Vaccines Cause Autism

RELATED: >>>/rationalnews/47 (https://archive.fo/jHOJW)

Big Pharma spokesman Paul Offit, known for telling the public that vaccines are totally safe, has been caught on camera admitting that vaccines causes autism.

Paul Offit, prominent vaccine spokesman, is so indebted to Big Pharma that even mainstream media have reported qualms about taking his word for anything medicine-related.

Offit makes a comfortable living as a pediatrician specializing in infectious diseases, and has an even more lucrative sideline as a self-described “expert” on vaccines, spruiking Big Pharma’s wares through the mainstream media

Expert? A more accurate term would be salesman.

He is known for refuting each and every claim against vaccines, and refusing to hear a bad word said about Big Pharma’s most profitable product line. One of his famous lines involved stating that it’s perfectly safe for children to receive 1,000 vaccinations at once.

But now we have secretly filmed footage of Paul Offit slipping and and revealing his true understanding of the link between autism and vaccines. Watch and see for yourself: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c2cHZa8t98w

In other words, Big Pharma and their pro-vaccination shills have been lying to the public. They have bought out the mainstream media, who now act as attack dogs, rabidly demanding everybody toe the line – or else they will be savaged.

Do not underestimate the power of the mainstream media’s ability to publicly shame people. There is no greater creator of ignorant groupthink. People are terrified to go against the grain of what appears to be mainstream opinion.

By stating that the MMR vaccine does not cause autism, they have been misleading you. As Paul Offit admits, the relationship between the MMR vaccine and autism is not clear-cut, black and white, and easily dismissed, as mainstream media have been telling you it is.

Paul Offit famously said it was safe for a child to receive 1,000 vaccinations at once. Given the insight we now have about him thanks to the secretly filmed footage, it’s safe to say his 1,000 vaccinations comment was probably a misleading, media-friendly soundbite that shouldn’t be taken seriously either.

Mom watched daughter’s rape and murder before having sex and making dinner with her killer

Monster mom told police that watching her daughter’s assault gave her ‘sexual gratification’

https://archive.fo/FyOWv

>Prosecutors in New Mexico are preparing for the trials of the three adults charged with the brutal murder of ten-year-old Victoria Martens.

>According to the news station KOAT, Michelle Martens confessed to police that she watched and did nothing while Fabian Gonzales and Jessica Kelley — a convicted rapist — sexually assaulted, strangled and dismembered Victoria, who had begged for mercy. It was the day after the girl’s tenth birthday. The mother admitted that watching her daughter’s rape gave her “sexual gratification.”

>Martens reportedly told police that she and Kelley injected the little girl with meth, and that the women watched as Gonzales, Michelle’s boyfriend, sexually assaulted Victoria. He then strangled her to death, according to the mother’s report, and Jessica stabbed the girl’s body repeatedly before cutting it into pieces.

>Martens told police that shortly after the murder, she and Fabian had sex, and the three later made dinner together.

>An autopsy found that Victoria had alcohol in her system at the time of death, and had the HPV virus, a sexually transmitted disease. No meth was found in her system, despite her mother’s claim.

>The transcripts revealed that Gonzales had sexually assaulted Victoria on a daily basis during the month before she died, and took photos and video of the assault.

>The mother further confessed to letting random men rape her daughter. She reportedly told police she met one at work and another online. According to KOAT, Michelle may have also let those men sexually assault her young son.

>All three defendants have pleaded not guilty to the charges against them.

>According to a report from news station KOB 4, Gonzales said Jessica Kelley is responsible. The report says that three defendants will be tried separately, as prosecutors have asked the judge for more time on what they say is a complicated case.

Globalist Traitor Angela Merkel: Germany Will Become An Islamic Stronghold

RELATED TREASON: >>>/realnews/364 (https://archive.fo/oZUTT)

Germans told to get used to being subjected to radical Islamic subjugation, terror!

Chancellor Angela Merkel blasted Germans for failing to understand how Muslim immigration has changed their country and told them they will have to come to terms with more mosques than churches throughout the countryside, according to the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung daily.

“Our country continues to change, and integration is also the task for society to deal with immigrants,” Ms. Merkel told the daily newspaper. “For years we’ve been deceiving ourselves about this. Mosques, for example, are going to be a more prominent part of our cities than they were before.”

Germany, with a population of 4-5 million Muslims, has been divided in recent weeks by a debate over remarks by the Bundesbank’s Thilo Sarrazin, who argued Turkish and Arab immigrants were failing to integrate and were swamping Germany with a higher birth rate.

The Chancellor’s remarks represent the first official acknowledgment that Germany, like other European countries, is destined to become a stronghold of Islam.

In France 30% of children age 20 years and below are Muslims. The ratio in Paris and Marseilles has soared to 45%. In southern France there are more Mosques than churches.

The situation within the United Kingdom is not much different. In last 30 years, the Muslim population there has climbed from 82,000 to 2.5 millions. Presently, there are over 1000 mosques throughout Great Britain – – many of which were converted from churches.

In Belgium, 50% newborns are Muslims and reportedly its Islamic population hovers around 25%. A similar statistic holds true for The Netherlands.

Before he died, Muammar Gaddafi compared Islamic migration to Europe with the fabled Trojan horse in ancient Greece: “There are signs that Allah will grant victory to Islam in Europe without sword, without gun, without conquest. We don’t need terrorists; we don’t need homicide bombers. The 50 plus million Muslims (in Europe) will turn it into the Muslim Continent within a few decades.”

The statistics support him.

Germany Confiscating Homes to Use for Invaders

Germany Confiscating Homes to Use for Migrants

"A massive attack on the property rights"

Authorities in Hamburg, the second-largest city in Germany, have begun confiscating private dwellings to ease a housing shortage — one that has been acutely exacerbated by Chancellor Angela Merkel's decision to allow more than two million migrants into the country in recent years.

City officials have been seizing commercial properties and converting them into migrant shelters since late 2015, when Merkel opened German borders to hundreds of thousands of migrants from Africa, Asia and the Middle East. Now, however, the city is expropriating residential property units owned by private citizens.

In an unprecedented move, Hamburg authorities recently confiscated six residential units in the Hamm district near the city center. The units, which are owned by a private landlord, are in need of repair and have been vacant since 2012. A trustee appointed by the city is now renovating the properties and will rent them — against the will of the owner — to tenants chosen by the city. District spokeswoman Sorina Weiland said that all renovation costs will be billed to the owner of the properties.

The expropriation is authorized by the Hamburg Housing Protection Act (Hamburger Wohnraumschutzgesetz), a 1982 law that was updated by the city's Socialist government in May 2013 to enable the city to seize any residential property unit that has been vacant for more than four months.

The forced lease, the first of its kind in Germany, is said to be aimed at pressuring the owners of other vacant residences in the city to make them available for rent. Of the 700,000 rental units in Hamburg, somewhere between 1,000 and 5,000 (less than one percent) are believed to be vacant, according an estimate by the Hamburg Senate.

Socialists and Greens in Hamburg recently established a "hotline" where local residents can report vacant properties. Activists have also created a website — Leerstandsmelder (Vacancy Detector) — to identify unoccupied real estate in Hamburg and other German cities.

It remains unclear why the landlord in Hamm left his apartments vacant for more than five years. Some have posited that, given the location of the properties, the renovation costs may have been too high and probably would not have been offset by the rental income.

Others are blaming city officials for not approving more building permits to allow for the construction of new residential units. A study conducted in 2012 — well before the migrant crisis reached epic proportions — forecast that by 2017, Hamburg would have a deficit of at least 50,000 rental properties.

In 2016, however, only 2,433 new residential units came onto the market, while only 2,290 new building permits were approved, according to statistics provided by the City of Hamburg. These numbers were up slightly from 2,192 new units and 2,041 new permit approvals in 2015.

In 2012, Hamburg's Socialist government presented a plan to build 6,000 new residential units per year. The plan never materialized, however, because prospective builders were constricted by government-imposed rental caps which would have made it impossible for them to even recover their construction costs.

Since then, the city has turned to seizing private property to resolve its self-inflicted housing crisis.

On October 1, 2015, the Hamburg Parliament (Hamburgische Bürgerschaft) approved a new law that allows the city to seize vacant commercial real estate (office buildings and land) and use it to house migrants.

City officials said the measure was necessary because, at the time, more than 400 new migrants were arriving in Hamburg each day and all the existing refugee shelters were full. They said that because the owners of vacant real estate refused to make their property available to the city on a voluntary basis, the city should be given the right to take it by force.

The measure was applauded by those on the left of the political spectrum. "We are doing everything we can to ensure that the refugees are not homeless during the coming winter," said Senator Till Steffen of the Green Party. "For this reason, we need to use vacant commercial properties."

Deliberate Destabilization! Obama's ICE Released Nearly 600 Rapists After Countries Refused Deportat

Deliberate Destabilization! Obama's ICE Released Nearly 600 Rapists After Countries Refused Deportation

RELATED: >>>/realnews/1015

Immigration officials released nearly 600 convicted sex offender illegal aliens back onto U.S. streets, many because their home countries refused to accept their deportation.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials reported that 564 illegal aliens convicted of sex crimes were released after a judge issued removal orders. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 2001 that ICE officials cannot indefinitely jail illegal immigrants ordered deported if their countries refuse to repatriate them. The numbers reported comes from a review by the Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI) of the latest accounting review of Fiscal Year 2015, the Washington Examiner reported.

The IRLI found that of the 564 released, 151 were due to their country of origin refused to accept them back. The immigration legal watchdog obtained records through a Freedom of Information Act request. The documents contained reports that of the 564 criminal aliens released, 194 were convicted of sexual assault, 95 were convicted of “commercialized sexual offenses,” and 275 were convicted of other sexual offenses.

“The anti-borders left routinely inject sanctimony into the immigration issue claiming that anyone with opposing arguments is morally inferior,” IRLI Executive Director Dale Wilcox told the Washington Examiner. “But when statistics like this come out, statistics which show the horrific consequences of having an unregulated immigration system, they merely step over them like they don’t exist,”

Of the 564 released sex offenders, immigration judges release 218. Twelve others were released under “prosecutorial discretion” issues including DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals).

Immigration officials did not release the names of the released sex offenders or their locations, the IRLI reported.

In 2015, Breitbart News reported that ICE officials do not track the released sex offenders. They also do not add them to sex offender registration lists. Then-executive associate director of enforcement and removal operations at ICE Gary Mead testified before a House congressional subcommittee that released criminal aliens have committed other crimes after being let go. Those crimes include “arson, assault, property damage, extortion, forgery or fraud, homicide, kidnapping, weapons offenses, embezzlement, controlled substance offenses, and sexual offenses.” At least two of the released aliens went on to kill police officers, he testified.

Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) Policy Studies Director Jessica Vaughan reviewed the fiscal year 2015 audit determined a total of 179,040 convicted criminals were ordered deported by an immigration judge, Breitbart Texas reported in July 2016. Of those, only 6,905 remained in custody of ICE officials. That leaves 172,135 convicted criminal aliens roaming the streets after a final order of removal. This number is at the highest lever for the past four report years and represents a 20 percent increase over the 2012 numbers, according to Immigration and Customs Enforcement reports obtained by CIS.

In addition to a country’s refusal to repatriate deportees, many aliens ordered deported simply disappear after being released. “Former immigration judge Mark Metcalf has analyzed immigration court data and found that more than half of non-detained aliens skip out on their hearings, Vaughan wrote in the report.”

Vaughan reported sanctuary city policies as the third major contributing reason for criminal aliens remaining in the U.S. after deportation orders.

Most notable among these is Juan Francisco Lopez Sanchez. This criminal illegal alien was awaiting his sixth deportation after serving time in a federal prison in California. Before he could be deported, San Francisco asked to take custody of the criminal alien on an old drug charge. When that charge was dropped, the sanctuary city of San Francisco ignored the immigration hold order and released him on the public. A few months later, he allegedly shot and killed Kate Steinle as she was walking along the San Francisco Pier with her father. Breitbart News has reported extensively on Steinle’s murder and the controversy over the city’s sanctuary policy.

OBSESSED! 92% Of CNN’s Trump Coverage Is Negative

RELATED: >>>/actualnews/641 (https://archive.fo/wDSi1)

There’s an understanding in the news business that any story — pro or con — about President Trump grabs eyeballs, but CNN has taken it to a new level.

A new Media Research Center survey of a full day of CNN coverage found that 92 percent of the news time was spent on Trump stories, The Washington Examiner reports.

And the angle: CNN featured 96 critics and just seven supporters.

MRC analysts reviewed a day of coverage on Friday, starting with the 4 a.m. Early Start and continuing through the 11 p.m. CNN Tonight with Don Lemon, a total of 20 hours of material.

“After excluding commercials, teases and promos, our analysts found 13 hours, 27 minutes of actual news coverage, an average of just over 40 minutes per hour. Of that, a whopping 92 percent (12 hours, 19 minutes) was devoted to the Trump presidency, with a mere 68 minutes — a little more than three minutes per hour — devoted to all of the other news of the day,” said the report.

As for the angle of coverage, MRC found: “The vast majority of all of CNN’s guests that day (96, or 78% of the total) were Trump critics, compared to a handful of pro-Trump guests (just seven, or 6% of the total). Another 13 guests were neutral, and seven offered mixed assessments of the administration.”

Insurers Request Double-Digit Premium Rate Increases for Obamacare Plans Next Year

Health insurers in Washington, D.C., Oregon, and Vermont have requested double-digit premium rate increases for Obamacare plans next year, according to state and district insurance commissioners.

In Oregon, there were eight health insurers participating in the individual market that requested premium rate hikes ranging from 6.9 percent to 21.8 percent.

"This year's rate requests follow two years of significant rate increases as insurers have adjusted to changes in the individual market," said the state insurance commissioner. "Rates increased an average of 23 percent in 2016 and 27 percent in 2017."

Premiums are continuing to increase due to higher-than-expected medical claims, declining participation of insurers, and the end of federal programs that mitigate risk for insurers. Insurers are also faced with increasing uncertainty as to whether the cost-sharing subsidies will be made and what will happen to the individual mandate (nullified by Trump's Executive Order back in February: https://archive.fo/yQayB).

"We continue to be concerned about the level of choice for Oregonians across the state," said Patrick Allen, director of the Department of Consumer and Business Services in Oregon. "In the coming weeks, we will be exploring our options to ensure all Oregonians have access to plans that fit their needs."

"We know there are still many unknowns facing insurers and consumers as we look ahead to 2018," said Laura Cali Robinson, the state's insurance commissioner.

BlueCross BlueShield requested a premium rate hike of 12.7 percent in Vermont, and MVP Health Plan Inc. requested an increase of 6.7 percent.

BlueCross Blue Shield, which is the largest insurer in Vermont, said that most of the increase in premiums was not due to direct health care services, but the federal insurer tax which was mandated by Obamacare.

Finally, in Washington, D.C., CareFirst BlueCross Blue Shield and Kaiser Permanente, two insurers participating on the individual market, have requested rate hikes ranging from 13 to 39.6 percent.

Insurers in Oregon, Vermont, and Washington, D.C., have joined Virginia, Connecticut, and Maryland insurers in submitting rate increases, and all have proposed double-digit hikes. Maryland insurers requested rates as high as 150 percent, Connecticut insurers requested rates as high as 52 percent and Virginia insurers requested rates as high as 20 percent. These proposed hikes come after the Obama administration already announced last year that premium rates would rise in 2017.

According to the Kaiser Foundation, rate increases are a result of the increasing number of insurers experiencing losses on the exchanges.

Workers with Gender Dysphoria (Tranny Mental Instability) Can Now Sue Companies if They Aren't Hired

You have to hire them: Workers with gender dysphoria are entitled to protection under the ADA, federal judge rules

A federal judge in Allentown, Pennsylvania, has refused to dismiss a lawsuit filed by a transgender woman who claims discrimination by her former employer, Cabela’s Retail Inc., under the Americans with Disabilities Act.

U.S. District Judge Joseph Leeson ruled (PDF) that the ADA protects people with gender dysphoria from discrimination, even though the law specifically excludes gender identity disorder from its protections, report Reuters and the Washington Blade.

Leeson ruled in a suit filed by Kate Lynn Blatt, who had claimed she was fired from a Cabela’s store in Hamburg, Pennsylvania, because of her sex and disability. Blatt’s lawyer, Neelima Vanguri, told Reuters that the decision is the first to allow a transgender person to sue under the ADA for discrimination based on gender dysphoria.

The ADA says the term “disability” does not include “transvestism, transsexualism, pedophilia, exhibitionism, voyeurism, gender identity disorders not resulting from physical impairments, or other sexual behavior disorders.”

Leeson distinguished the non-disabling condition of merely identifying with a different gender from gender dysphoria, “which goes beyond merely identifying with a different gender and is characterized by clinically significant stress and other impairments that may be disabling.”

Leeson said his interpretation of the law made it unnecessary to decide whether the exclusion for gender identity disorders violates Blatt’s equal protection rights.

Blatt had alleged that workers at Cabela’s had subjected her to degrading comments, and that she was not allowed to wear a name tag with her female name or to use the women’s restroom.

Explosion and Stampede: Many People KILLED at Ariana Grande Concert

At least one explosion at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England caused a "number of confirmed fatalities and others injured," police said late Monday.

Police statement on incident at Manchester Arena pic.twitter.com/gaKASukx9a

— G M Police (@gmpolice) May 22, 2017

British Transport Police said an explosion occurred in the foyer of Manchester Arena at 10:30 p.m., around the time the concert finished. Others reported hearing two blasts, a discrepancy that could not immediately be reconciled. The cause of the blasts was not immediately confirmed, but bomb disposal units were reportedly at the scene.

Spokesman Joseph Carozza said Grande, who was performing at the arena as part of her "Dangerous Woman" world tour, was "okay" and added, "we are further investigating what happened."

Witnesses described panic as concertgoers rushed to get out of the arena. Video from inside the arena showed people screaming as they made their way out amid a sea of pink balloons. Some on social media initially suggested that some of the balloons had burst, making a loud noise like a bomb.

Concertgoer Sasina Akhtar told the Manchester Evening News that Grande had just finished her last song when "there was an explosion behind us at the back of the arena. We saw young girls with blood on them, everyone was screaming and people were running. There was lots of smoke."

David Richardson, who attended the show with his 13-year-old daughter, told the MEN that he heard two explosions just after the show.

"It was about 40 feet behind us near one of the exits. We just thought it was people messing about then it happened again. Another explosion sounded. Then we saw the smoke. Everyone just fled."

Majid Khan, 22, said she heard a "huge bomb-like bang that hugely panicked everyone and we were all trying to flee the arena."

"Everyone was in a huge state of panic, calling each other as some had gone to the toilet whilst this had gone off, so it was just extremely disturbing for everyone there."

Nolan Bruder Commits Wincest, Drugs and Slowly Rapes 16y/o Sister, Judge Gladly Commends His Actions

Nolan Bruder Rapes His 16-Year-Old Sister, Judge Gives Him Slap On Wrist

Crescent City, CA – A judge gave a few days active time and probation to Nolan Bruder, age 20, who raped his 16-year-old sister, going against the recommendations of the District Attorney and the Probation Department.

According to KRCTV, Nolan Bruder pleaded guilty earlier this month to the charge of rape of an intoxicated person. In his confession, he said that his sister had refused to have sex with him. He said that he gave his sister high-potency marijuana known as ‘dabs’ to smoke, until she was so stoned she could no longer recognize him as her brother.

Judge William H. Follett sentenced Bruder to just three years, and then suspended all but 240 days of that. He then gave Bruder probation.

District Attorney Dale Trigg said that “he could not disagree more” with the sentencing.

After sentencing Bruder, Judge Follett said that he believed “the stigma” of Bruder’s conviction along with ‘mandatory sex offender registration’ would prevent him and others in the community from reoffending.

The DA said “I could not disagree more. The message that this sends to our community is that sexual predators who get their juvenile siblings stoned enough can have sex with them without any meaningful consequence. That is not the message I want to send to our community.”

During the sentencing, Judge Follett noted that the victim took off her own clothes and was not unconscious. He also doubted if there was sufficient evidence for a jury to convict.

At the trial, Deputy District Attorney Annmarie Padilla argued that Judge Follett should follow the Probation Department’s recommendation of six years in prison.

The date of the crime predated the Brock Turner case. In that case, Turner, a Stanford University swimmer, served three months in jail for sexually assaulting an unconscious woman. After that case, the California legislature changed the law to make such crimes ineligible for probation.

Nolan Bruder’s crime was committed before the Turner ruling, and the new law does not apply to his case.

Trigg said that this case was worse than Turner’s case, because he took advantage “of a position of trust as the victim’s big brother.”

He said, “He knew she didn’t want to have sex with him. She told him that repeatedly. So he got her stoned on dabs he gave her until she didn’t even recognize him in order get what he wanted.”

Do you think that Judge William Follett Should be removed as a judge? We’d like to hear what you think. Please let us know in the comments.

Trump Is Doing Exactly What He Promised During His Campaign, THAT Is Why the MSM Is Freaking Out

Trump Is Doing Exactly What He Promised During His Campaign, THAT Is Why the MSM Is Freaking Out

Despite all the lies, bitter hate, slander and propaganda aimed against Trump and the American people, and being bombarded with it 24/7, Trump recently kept two big campaign promises: to restore US-Russian relations and to joining the Russian effort to defeat ISIS/ISIL terrorism.

The deep state-run mainstream media has recently gone into hyperventilation because Obama's era of arming and aiding Radical Islamic Terror to overthrow legitimate elected governments in the Middle East seems to be coming to an abrupt end under President Trump.

Instead of trying to disarm American citizens (like Obama tried doing for 8 years), Trump is willing to work with Russia to disarm Radical Islamic Terrorists who pose a threat to civilized Western nations including Europe and the United States.

THIS is the reason the mainstream media and the corrupt establishment are in full panic. We were warned there would be a deep state coup against the Trump administration, and against the American voters. Looks like the liberal tyrants are in such a panic, they are willing to take off their gloves for the entire world to see that they really do hate democracy (when it doesn't work out their way, that is!)

The Assault on Trump Is An Assault Against Struggling Poor & Middle Class American Voters

The Assault on Trump Is An Assault Against Struggling Poor & Middle Class American Voters

https://archive.fo/0Jk1b

http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2017/05/18/the-assault-on-trump/

We are witnessing an assault by the national security state and its liberal media on a President of the United States that is unprecedented.

Wild and unsupported accusations of treasonous or illegal Russian connections have been the mainstay of the news since Trump’s campaign for president. These accusations have reached the point that there is an impeachment movement driven by the national security state and its liberal media and endorsed by Democrats, the American leftwing which has turned against the working class as “Trump deplorables,” and luminaries such as Harvard Law Professor Larry Tribe. The Washington Post, which was not present at the meeting of President Trump with Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov, purports to know that Trump gave Lavrov US national security information.

The Russian government has offered the presstitute media a transcript of the meeting, but, of course, the pressitutes are not interested.

The latest story is that Trump tried to bribe FBI Director Comey, before he fired him, not to investigate Trump as part of the “Russian investigation.” Clearly there is no intelligence left in the American media. The President doesn’t need to bribe someone he can fire.

What we are witnessing is the determination of the national security state to keep their prized “Russian Threat” in its assigned role as the Number One Threat to the US. The liberal media, owned by the CIA since the 1950s is in accord with this goal.

The American media is so accustomed to its enslavement by the national security state that it does not think of the consequences. But Professor Stephen Cohen does. I agree with him that the greatest threat to national security “is this assault on President Trump.”

Cohen said that there is a 4th branch of government, the intelligence community, which obstruts the management of American foreign affairs by the executive branch and Congress.

As an example, he reminded us that “In 2016, President Obama worked out a deal with Russian President Putin for military cooperation in Syria. He said he was going to share intelligence with Russia, just like Trump and the Russians were supposed to do the other day. Our department of defense said it wouldn’t share intelligence. And a few days later, they killed Syrian soldiers, violating the agreement, and that was the end of that. So, we can ask, who is making our foreign policy in Washington today?”

Panic at Highest Levels of DNC After Kim Dotcom Claims He Helped Seth Rich Leak DNC Emails

Saturday, an anonymous person who works in Washington DC, alleged on 4Chan’s /pol/ subgroup that high-ranking current and former Democratic Party officials are terrified of the Seth Rich murder investigation.

This comes after internet entrepreneur and hacker, Kim DotCom, admitted on Saturday that he was part of an operation along with Seth Rich to get stolen DNC emails to Wikileaks.

Moments ago Kim Dotcom dropped this bomb:

“I knew Seth Rich. I know he was the @Wikileaks source. I was involved.”

It wasn’t the Russians.

The anonymous post released Saturday reads:

“Anons, I work in D.C.

I know for certain that the Seth Rich case has scared the shit out of certain high ranking current and former Democratic Party officials.

This is the reason why they have backed away from impeachment talk. They know the smoking gun is out there, and they’re terrified you will find it, because when you do it will bring the entire DNC, along with a couple of very big name politicians.

It appears that certain DNC thugs were not thorough enough when it came time to cover their tracks. Podesta saying he wanted to “make an example of the leaker” is a huge smoking gun.”

In a follow up post, the anonymous individual wrote:

“The behavior is near open panic. To even mention this name in D.C. Circles [sic] will bring you under automatic scrutiny. To even admit that you have knowledge of this story puts you in immediate danger.

If there was no smoke there would be no fire. I have never, in my 20 years of working in D.C. Seen [sic] such a panicked reaction from anyone.

I have strong reason to believe that the smoking gun in this case is out o [sic] the hands of the conspirators, and will be discovered by anon. I know for certain that Podesta is deeply concerned. He’s been receiving anonymous calls and emails from people saying they know the truth. Same with Hillary.”

Karl Rove Names James Comey as Source of White House Leaks

Former George W. Bush Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove said on Friday the White House leaks are originating from career government officials and the lack of consequences is damaging to President Trump.

“Our biggest current leaker is [James] Comey who is obviously going back to his notes, internal memorandum and through a friend or friends leaking them to the press,” Rove said during an interview on the FOX Business Network’s Cavuto: Coast-to-Coast.

Former Whitewater Independent Counsel Robert Ray said it’s possible that some of the White House leaks have resulted from Trump’s combative relationship with intelligence agencies.

“You are always going to deal with career people in Washington who don’t owe political alliance to you. They are an important part of government which the president I think has come to understand,” Ray told FOX Business’ Neil Cavuto.

Rove said outside of the intelligence community, White House staffers are the principal source of the leaks against the Trump administration.

'Mindset evidence': Welsh binman jailed for the thought crime of sympathy for ISIS

TL;DNR: Do not read if you don't want to go to jail or something.

'Deeply radicalised' binman jailed for five years for terrorism offences

A "deeply radicalised" council binman has been jailed for five years for terrorism offences, after converting to Islam and telling his wife how he wanted to kill soldiers.

Aabid Ali, 49, from Wrexham, an apparent supporter of the so-called Islamic State (IS) group, had looked up security arrangements at Number 10, been found with maps of Parliament and spoke of using a car as a jihadi weapon, Manchester Crown Court heard. He had also said that the murder of Lee Rigby, who was attacked and killed near the Royal Artillery Barracks in Woolwich in 2013, was justified. Ali, who had visited Downing Street and said he hoped to meet the "war criminal" prime minister, also told his wife of his desire to bomb an RAF base and attack nightclubs.

When his wife, who worked at a military base, told police about her husband's extreme views it led to heightened security at the army barracks where she was employed, the court heard. She told police her husband had become increasingly fixated with radical Islam and he had said he wanted to kill a soldier with a car and described him as "driven" in his attitudes.

He was warned about his conduct but refused to engage in "state-sponsored mind bending", he said.

Police searched his home on November 10 last year, seizing his mobile phone and tablet device, showing a substantial quantity of "mindset evidence". This included downloading Inspire 13, an al Qaida bomb making manual, and Palestine: Betrayal Of A Guilty Conscience, a similar document showing how to make a pressure cooker bomb. The court heard a "flavour" of the internet searches Ali carried out included information on travelling to the Middle East, radical preachings, GCHQ and spying, pipe bombs, SAS barracks locations and how to make bomb detonators and maps of Parliament. Counter-terror police also found he had posted a comment on YouTube, on or before November 10 last year, intended to directly encourage others to commit, prepare or instigate acts of terrorism.

Ali converted to Islam 20 years ago and changed his name from Darren Glennon. He became increasingly fixated with extremist ideology in the last two years, "almost daily" watching videos of IS beheadings, stonings and bombings, as well as looking up how to make explosives, the court was told. Ali pleaded guilty at an earlier hearing to two offences of having IS bomb-making manuals and a further count of encouraging terrorism, all committed last autumn.

At the time of his arrest, Ali denied ever trying to build a bomb. Paul Smith, mitigating, said the defendant had never "crossed the line" into actually preparing an act of terrorism himself. But jailing Ali, for five years and four months, the Honorary Recorder of Manchester, Judge David Stockdale, said the refuse collector had shown, "no remorse, no regret, no apology".

Ali's wife told police her husband had always felt the need to be "part of a brotherhood" and had in the past been a member of the BNP and a biker group.

So Much For The 'War On Terror', Terrorism Rate Increases Ninefold in 15 Years

RELATED: >>>/realnews/364 (https://archive.fo/VK2YX)

Terrorists murdered almost 30,000 people in 2015, according to the latest figures from the Institute for Economics and Peace. This means terrorists killed 6 percent of the 468,000 people who were murdered around the world in 2015. Since 2000, the year before the September 11 attacks against the United States, terror deaths per year have increased ninefold (774 percent).

Of the 29,376 people murdered by terrorists, 60 percent were killed by one of four Sunni Muslim groups. The Islamic State killed 6,141 people, Boko Haram killed 5,478 people, the Taliban killed 4,502 people, and al Qaeda killed 1,620 people. These grisly statistics only count those killed outside the context of “legitimate warfare activities,” as classified by the Global Terrorism Database.

An additional 47,000 people were killed in armed conflicts with the Islamic State, Boko Haram, the Taliban and al Qaeda. This number accounts for 30 percent of all battle-related deaths in 2015. When the terrorism and battle statistics are combined, these four terrorist organizations alone were responsible for 10 percent of the world’s violent killings in 2015 (suicides and animal attacks excluded).

Non-state, Sunni Muslim groups committed the majority of terrorist murders in 2015. But Iran, which is Shiite, remained the world’s number one state sponsor of terrorism. According to a 2015 Congressional Research Service report, Iran spends approximately $100 to $200 million per year financing Hezbollah, $12 to $26 million per year financing Shiite militias inside Syria and Iraq, and $10 to $20 million per year financing Houthi rebels in Yemen.

In addition to financing more than 100 Shiite extremist organizations and militias, Iran also finances many Sunni terror groups. The same Congressional Research Service report notes that Iran gives tens of million of dollars each year to Hamas, a Sunni terrorist organization in the Gaza Strip with links to the Muslim Brotherhood. In turn, Hamas pays tens of thousands of dollars each month to the Islamic State’s Sinai branch, in exchange for help smuggling weapons into the Gaza Strip.

Iran is also funding the Taliban in a bid to stop the Islamic State from spreading into Afghanistan. “Iran is betting on the reemergence of the Taliban,” a Western diplomat told the Wall Street Journal. ”They are uncertain about where Afghanistan is heading right now, so they are hedging their bets.”

Westerners used to viewing the world through the lens of the nation-state may find it ironic that Iran is simultaneously partnering with the Islamic State’s Sinai branch while fighting against its Afghan branch. Yet Iran’s strategy for dominating the Middle East is one of destabilizing enemies and propping up allies. Clandestine aid to the Islamic State’s Sinai branch helps Iran destabilize Egypt and Israel, both of which Iran currently considers enemies. Meanwhile, covert aid to the Taliban keeps the Islamic State from growing too powerful in the Hindu Kush region.

This complicated network of terror is now killing tens of thousand of people every year. Radical Islam is now the dominant ideology across the Middle East, and Iran is this ideology’s chief state sponsor.

Trump to Comey:This Flynn thing,I hope you can let this go..or else

President Trump asked the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, to shut down the federal investigation into Mr. Trump’s former national security adviser, Michael T. Flynn, in an Oval Office meeting in February, according to a memo Mr. Comey wrote shortly after the meeting.

“I hope you can let this go,or else” the president told Mr. Comey, according to the memo.

The documentation of Mr. Trump’s request is the clearest evidence that the president has tried to directly influence the Justice Department and F.B.I. investigation into links between Mr. Trump’s associates and Russia. Late Tuesday, Representative Jason Chaffetz, the Republican chairman of the House Oversight Committee, demanded that the F.B.I. turn over all “memoranda, notes, summaries and recordings” of discussions between Mr. Trump and Mr. Comey.

Mr. Comey shared the existence of the memo with senior F.B.I. officials and close associates. The New York Times has not viewed a copy of the memo, which is unclassified, but one of Mr. Comey’s associates read parts of it to a Times reporter.

“I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go,” Mr. Trump told Mr. Comey, according to the memo. “He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go,or else.”

Mr. Comey did not say anything to Mr. Trump about curtailing the investigation, replying only: “I agree he is a good guy.”…"As opposed to others"

FBI Sued Over Fake Trump-Russia Dossier

Conservative watchdog Judicial Watch are suing the FBI for records relating to the debunked Trump-Russia dossier.

The group are seeking to obtain records about the FBI’s contacts with former British spy Christopher Steele, who compiled memos accusing Trump team members of colluding with the Russian government during the presidential campaign.

Daily Caller reports:

The suit seeks all records of communications between FBI officials and Steele, who runs the London-based consulting firm, Orbis Business Intelligence.

Judicial Watch is also seeking records of any discussions of payments from the FBI to Steele for his work compiling the dossier.

Steele’s dossier consists of 17 memos dated from between June 20 to Dec. 13.

The FBI has reportedly relied on the dossier to aid its investigation into whether Trump advisers colluded with the Kremlin.

FBI officials are said to have cited the document in the bureau’s application for a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) warrant against former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

A FISC judge reportedly granted the warrant in September, just after Page left the campaign.

Steele’s dossier asserts that Page, an energy consultant, met secretly with Russian government officials in Moscow in July to discuss lifting sanctions against Russia.

Page has denied the claims in Steele’s report, which he calls the “Dodgy Dossier.”

FBI agents met with Steele on several occasions, according to various news reports.

They first met in July, and the FBI started its investigation weeks later. Steele met with FBI agents again in October.

At that meeting, the two sides informally agreed that Steele would continue his research on Trump. A payment of $50,000 was also offered to Steele if he could corroborate some of his previous reports. The payment was never made, though it is unclear why.

Steele’s dossier was published by BuzzFeed News on Jan. 10.

Some Republicans have questioned the FBI’s relationship with Steele, who was working on behalf of a Washington, D.C.-based opposition research firm that had been hired by an ally of Hillary Clinton’s.

Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Chuck Grassley has repeatedly pressed the FBI about its relationship with Steele.

“The so-called Trump dossier is at the center anti-Trump Russian collusion conspiracy theory,” Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton said in a statement.

“It is disconcerting that the Obama FBI and Justice Department trafficked this document and evidently used it to justify unprecedented surveillance of the Trump team. Our new lawsuit seeks to expose the truth about this dossier. Maybe with new leadership at the FBI, we’ll finally get some answers.”

A Russian Perspective: America Is At War With Itself Over Trump's Election

A Russian Perspective: America Is At War With Itself Over Trump's Election

RELATED: >>>/realnews/1873

https://archive.fo/2FZ71

http://yournewswire.com/america-war-trump/

President Trump is running rough shot over established norms in Washington while taking America forward, a herculean task for a 70-year-old man, leaving the Democrats and their lackey mainstream media at a loss what to do.

The American civil war 2.0 is in full swing, it just hasn’t got too bloody yet, says a Russian political commentator.

These political schizophrenics do what they do, not realizing that their cleverness in directing the anti-Trump narrative is actually harming the country. Or, according to Russian President Vladimir Putin, they may know what damage they are causing, in which case “they are dangerous and unscrupulous.”

Sputnik reports: https://archive.fo/pVhrD

The American civil war 2.0 is not just a figure of speech: the bitter conflict has been raging on in the United States over the last few years, Russian political commentator Dmitry Kosyrev writes for RIA Novosti.

The American civil war 2.0 is not just a figure of speech: the bitter conflict has been raging on in the United States over the last few years, Russian political commentator Dmitry Kosyrev writes for RIA Novosti.

"Democrats are doing wild, suicidal things because they are not just on the defensive, but on the verge of collapse, as the Trump administration breaking down their 'evil empire'… Their goal is not the destruction of Russia, but the salvation of their own project," Kosyrev pointed out, referring to the ongoing scandal over alleged "Russian interference" in the US 2016 presidential election.

Kosyrev quoted Russian President Vladimir Putin who called attention to the fact that “the growing political schizophrenia in the United States” threatens to upset the balance in the country.

"They are using anti-Russian slogans to destabilize the internal political situation in the United States, but they do not realize that they are harming their own country. If this is the case, then they are quite simply stupid. If they do understand what they are doing, then they are dangerous and unscrupulous people," Putin told journalists following Russian-Italian talks Wednesday.

At first glance, the ongoing conflict bears no resemblance to the American Civil War of 1861-1865; however, this civil hybrid war is no less bitter, according to the commentator.

While former Chairman and CEO of Fox News Roger Eugene Ailes had managed to “give conservatives a voice,” as Ken McIntyre of The Daily Signal recently noted, the Democrats, liberals, and globalists have been maintaining a “monopoly” over the US mainstream media for years.

Gang Rape Used for TEAM BONDING by American Football Players Who Assraped 52 Women Over Three Years

AN AMERICAN football team accused of sexually assaulting 52 women over three years used gang rape as a vile team building exercise, it is alleged.

Notorious Baylor University in Waco, Texas, has been plunged further into scandal with new allegations suggesting as many as eight football players drugged a fellow athlete and took turns raping her.

The lawsuit filed by a former Baylor volleyball player known only as “Jane Doe” is the seventh lawsuit against the institution.

At least 17 women have reported having been victims of sexual or domestic violence, including five alleged gang rapes, at the hands of 19 Baylor University football players.

Another lawsuit claims a minimum of 52 rapes have been perpetrated by no fewer than 31 players on the team between 2011 and 2014.

Victims allege players hazed freshmen recruits by making them lure freshman girls to house parties, where the girls would be drugged and gang raped — or in the alleged words of the football players “trains would be run on the girls”.

According to the suit, these gang rape sessions were a “bonding” experience for the team and participants would take photos and videos of “semiconscious” girls and then “circulate” them to other players and friends.

One plaintiff has submitted a 21-second video allegedly featuring two girls being gang raped as evidence.

In March, state investigators joined federal authorities to dig into how the school handled its years-long abuse scandal involving at least 125 alleged female victims.

Doe’s filing claims that the football team, under former coach Art Briles and former athletics director Ian McCaw, “had run wild, in more ways than one, and Baylor was doing nothing to stop it”.

The volleyball player claimed she was gang raped in a practice that had become common for the team and is seeking actual and compensatory damages in addition to legal fees and a jury trial.

Doe’s lawyer Muhammad Aziz, told the Waco Tribune-Herald: “Really, what we are seeking to enforce is just a safe education environment for the girls at the school.

“These girls affected by this are seeking their day in court. We thought about this a lot, and … eventually, we decided to proceed.

“Really, what we are seeking to enforce is just a safe education environment for the girls at the school.”

Doe’s alleged assault is referenced in several other lawsuits against Baylor, including one that claims the players admitted to “fooling around” with Doe, calling it “just a little bit of playtime”.

It is the latest fallout for the school that is still reeling from a widespread sexual assault scandal that cost Baylor University president Ken Starr and Briles their jobs, and led to the resignation of McCaw a year later.

In January, a lawsuit was filed accusing 31 players of committing 52 rapes, five of them gang rapes, over a period of four years.

After the lawsuit, Baylor released text messages that implicated Briles in covering up the assaults.

Crazy! Progressive Professor Fooled by Peer-Reviewed HOAX: ‘Penises Cause Climate Change’

Crazy! Progressive Professor Fooled by Peer-Reviewed HOAX: "Penises Cause Climate Change"

Sponsored by >>>/crazynews/

https://archive.fo/3VYQu

http://www.breitbart.com/tech/2017/05/20/delingpole-penises-cause-climate-change-progressives-fooled-by-peer-reviewed-hoax-study/

Gender studies is a fake academic industry populated by charlatans, deranged activists and gullible idiots.

Now, a pair of enterprising hoaxers has proved it scientifically by persuading an academic journal to peer-review and publish their paper claiming that the penis is not really a male genital organ but a social construct.

The paper, published by Cogent Social Sciences – “a multidisciplinary open access journal offering high quality peer review across the social sciences” – also claims that penises are responsible for causing climate change.

The two hoaxers are Peter Boghossian, a full-time faculty member in the Philosophy department at Portland State University, and James Lindsay, who has a doctorate in math and a background in physics.

They were hoping to emulate probably the most famous academic hoax in recent years: the Sokal Hoax.

Sokal’s paper – comprising pages of impressive-sounding but meaningless pseudo-academic jargon – was written in part to demonstrate that humanities journals will publish pretty much anything so long as it sounds like “proper leftist thought;” and partly in order to send up the absurdity of so much post-modernist social science.

So, for this new spoof, Boghossian and Lindsay were careful to throw in lots of signifier phrases to indicate fashionable anti-male bias:

We intended to test the hypothesis that flattery of the academic Left’s moral architecture in general, and of the moral orthodoxy in gender studies in particular, is the overwhelming determiner of publication in an academic journal in the field. That is, we sought to demonstrate that a desire for a certain moral view of the world to be validated could overcome the critical assessment required for legitimate scholarship. Particularly, we suspected that gender studies is crippled academically by an overriding almost-religious belief that maleness is the root of all evil. On the evidence, our suspicion was justified.

They also took care to make it completely incomprehensible.

Racist Professor Tells White Men To Quit Or Be Demoted (Guess What She Looks Like)

A University of Hawaii assistant math professor who holds a PhD degree in mathematics from Princeton University has a new racist equation she wants to promote: white + man + job = her order for white males to quit or be demoted.

Piper Harron wrote on a blog for the American Mathematical Society (AMS), titling her piece, “Get Out The Way.”

Harron began with her demand:

Not to alarm you, but I probably want you to quit your job, or at least take a demotion. Statistically speaking, you are probably taking up room that should go to someone else. If you are a white cis man (meaning you identify as male and you were assigned male at birth) you almost certainly should resign from your position of power.

If that didn’t suffice, there was more: “Get off your hiring committee, your curriculum committee, and make sure you’re replaced by a woman of color or trans person … Remember that you live in a world where people don’t succeed in a vacuum; most success happens on the backs of others who did not consent. You have no idea how successful you would have been if you were still you, but with an additional marginalization (not white, or not male, or not cis gender, or with a disability, etc).”

After some endless ranting about needs of non-traditional families, Harron paused for a moment to snarl:

Ask yourself who benefits when your sexist society views (“traditional”) marriage as sacred. Ask yourself how we’d talk about marriage and divorce if women were allowed to be. I’m convinced that mixed in with the homophobia that propelled conservatives to suddenly want government all up in our personal lives was misogyny that said it just isn’t “marriage” if you don’t have one man (ruling) and one woman (being ruled).

Then the advice for universities:

What can universities do? Well, that’s easier. Stop hiring white cis men (except as needed to get/retain people who are not white cis men) until the problem goes away. If you think this is a bad or un-serious idea, your sexism/racism/transphobia is showing … When the applications come in, remember society makes dominant applicants look better than they are. Society makes marginalized applicants look worse than they are. There is no objectivity. There is no meritocracy.

Harron concluded:

I know you’re not going to quit your job, but I want you to understand that you should. And to understand that by keeping your job and your other unearned privileges, you are running a continued debt to marginalized people and you should always be seeking ways to pay us back. Not to alarm you, but statistically speaking you are the problem. Your very presence. I can’t tell you what is the best strategy for you to stop blocking my path. I can just ask that you please get out of my way.

On the “About the Editors” page, Harron’s bio states that she “tried really hard to play by the rules of society and academia, but she failed. Not only did she fail, but she was miserable and found that playing by the rules wouldn’t even keep her safe … She dedicates her work to everyone who dabbles in misery, trying to find their way in systems that don’t support them, and to anyone trying to tear it all down. ”

Jury says it was right that transgender inmate was held in all-male prison

An inquest jury has concluded that it was right that a transgender prisoner who died at Leeds Prison was held in a male jail, but also found she was let down by a range of services as well as her family.

Miss Thompson, who was from Keighley, West Yorkshire, had identified as female since she was 10 years old but never had any surgical or hormone treatment.

The inquest heard she did not have a Gender Recognition Certificate establishing her female identity so she was sent to a male prison.

The jury also heard about the extensive drug, alcohol, mental health and other problems Miss Thompson had experienced in her life.

Trump brags to Russkie comrades"I Fired Nut Job Comey to Ease heat From Investigation"O O J

Obstructor of justice

Trump told the Russians last week that firing Comey — who he referred to as “crazy” and a “nut job” — had relieved him from the pressure of the investigation. And according to the Washington Post, the federal investigation into Trump’s administration has focused in on a current official as “a significant person of interest.”

According to the Times, the conversation occurred during an Oval Office meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Russian Ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak on May 10 — a day after Trump abruptly fired Comey. The quotes, which were read to the Times by a current official, were written in a document the Times says was “circulated as the official account of the meeting.”

“I just fired the head of the F.B.I. He was crazy, a real nut job,” Trump reportedly said. “I faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off.”

He also told the men, “I’m not under investigation.”

The Washington Post reports the investigation has actually accelerated in recent weeks and is currently focused on a “senior White House adviser” who has not been named but who is reportedly “someone close to the president.”

Both Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and Attorney General Jeff Sessions have acknowledged meeting with Russian officials in the last six months. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson also has extensive business contacts in Russia and was once awarded a medal of friendship from Putin.

Posh Stabbing Tinder cunt gets Class Pass from snooty Brit judge,she's our kinda people

An Oxford University student who stabbed her boyfriend with a bread knife may not go to jail because it could damage her prospects of a medical career, a court has heard.

Aspiring heart surgeon Lavinia Woodward, 24, punched and stabbed her boyfriend during an alcohol-and-drug-fuelled row at Christ Church College. She admitted unlawfully wounding the Cambridge University student, who she met on the dating app Tinder.

Judge Ian Pringle QC, sitting at Oxford crown court, said he would take an “exceptional” course and defer sentence for four months, hinting that Woodward will not be jailed because of her talent. “It seems to me that if this was a one-off, a complete one-off, to prevent this extraordinary able young lady from not following her long-held desire to enter the profession she wishes to would be a sentence which would be too severe,” he said.

Comrade Traitor Manchurian Trumpinski is fuked,Mueller Named Special Counsel 4 Russ Investigation

JEWYORK TIMES,READ ALLA BOOT IT

Robert Mueller, Former F.B.I. Director, Is Named Special Counsel for Russia Investigation

WASHINGTON — The Justice Department appointed Robert S. Mueller III, a former F.B.I. director, as special counsel on Wednesday to oversee the investigation into ties between President Trump’s campaign and Russian officials, dramatically raising the legal and political stakes in an affair that has threatened to engulf Mr. Trump’s four-month-old presidency.

The decision by the deputy attorney general, Rod J. Rosenstein, came after a cascade of damaging developments for Mr. Trump in recent days, including his abrupt dismissal of the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, and the subsequent disclosure that Mr. Trump asked Mr. Comey to drop the investigation of his former national security adviser, Michael T. Flynn.

Mr. Rosenstein had been under escalating pressure from Democrats, and even some Republicans, to appoint a special counsel after he wrote a memo that the White House initially cited as the rationale for Mr. Comey’s dismissal.

By appointing Mr. Mueller, a former federal prosecutor with an unblemished reputation, Mr. Rosenstein could alleviate uncertainty about the government’s ability to investigate the questions surrounding the Trump campaign and the Russians.

Mr. Rosenstein said in a statement that he concluded that “it is in the public interest for me to exercise my authorities and appoint a special counsel to assume responsibility for this matter.”

Man feeds son to pigs (not the other way round)

Man gets life in prison for killing son, feeding him to pigs

A former Kansas bail bondsman was sentenced to life in prison Monday for killing his 7-year-old son, who authorities say endured abuse and starvation before his remains were fed to pigs on the family’s rental property.

Under the sentence, Michael Jones, 46, won’t be eligible for parole for at least 25 years. He pleaded guilty in March to first-degree murder in the 2015 death of Adrian Jones. Michael Jones turned his chair away from Adrian’s grandmother, mother and older sister, never making eye contact as they addressed the judge. They excoriated him during the sentencing hearing for a slaying authorities described as horrific, even haunting.

Keiona Doctor, the late boy’s 21-year-old sister, told Michael Jones:

>(You) do not deserve a second chance, (You) do not deserve sunlight as a free man.

He declined the judge’s offer to make a statement.

The judge ordered Jones to spend the rest of his life on parole if he is ever released from prison. His attorney did not object in court Monday to the life sentence prosecutors sought. The boy’s stepmother, 31-year-old Heather Jones, pleaded guilty to the same charge in November and is serving a life sentence. She insisted that she felt helpless to protect Adrian and herself from her abusive husband, but investigators said she also abused the boy, drawing an additional five years and eight months in prison for that.

Adrian died in September or October 2015, but his death wasn’t reported to authorities. His remains were found that November on the family’s Kansas City, Kansas, rental property after officers learned the boy was missing while they were responding to a report that Michael Jones had attacked his wife at their home. When the charges were filed, Wyandotte County’s district attorney at the time, Jerry Gorman, said it was one of the worst cases investigators had seen. During Monday’s hearing, a police investigator – Detective Stuart Littlefield – confirmed publicly for the first time:

>What was left of (Adrian’s body) was fed to his pigs.

Often choking back tears, Littlefield asked for a 20-second moment of silence, reflecting the length of time Adrian at one point was shocked by a stun gun during his “tortured young life.”

Adrian’s biological mother, Dainna Pearce, lost custody of him and two of his siblings years ago. Her mother, Judy Conway, said last week that she finally brought herself to look at videos and digital photos from the Jones home that showed the abuse Adrian suffered in his life’s waning months, much of it chronicled by more than 30 security cameras set up throughout the home. Conway said the Joneses kept Adrian naked in a shower stall and modified it so that he couldn’t get out. She said they sometimes strapped her grandson to an inversion table and that they made him stand in a swimming pool overnight, up to his neck in stagnant water. Conway said the videos and photos show that Heather Jones sometimes beat Adrian with the end of a broom handle and kept alarms on the family’s food so that he couldn’t take any when he was hungry.

Conway told Michael Jones in court Monday:

>There’s no getting over it. There’s no fix, there’s no solution to our heartache.

Pearce, Adrian’s mother, added:

>There is no glue for our broken hearts, no remedy for our pain. I pray (You) have a long, tortured life in prison. I don’t know if I can forgive (You), but I know (You) should suffer for what (You) did.

The Kansas Department for Children and Families’ chief, Phyllis Gilmore, said in a statement Friday that the agency “thoroughly investigated” each reported incident of alleged abuse or neglect involving Adrian, though she did not divulge the number of cases or their context. Gilmore added that although the family’s frequently alternating residency between Kansas and Missouri “greatly disrupted continuity of services and evaluation,” Kansas child welfare officials often shared information about Adrian “when known” with their Missouri counterparts. Gilmore said her agency last had contact with the family in early 2012.

The department’s records involving Adrian remain under court-ordered seal, though Gilmore said they will be released if a pending open-records request is granted.

MSM Blackout: Communist Maxine Waters Held $200,000 In Russia-Linked Bank Accounts

Disgraced Democrat Maxine Waters held over $200,000 in Russia-linked retirement accounts in 2015, according to newly released documents.

Maxine Waters is spearheading the movement to have Trump impeached over his alleged ties to Russia – yet her own recent financial disclosures to the House of Representatives raise serious questions about her weird ties to Russia.

Got News reports: https://archive.fo/RsojG

Waters’s cash-grabbing shamelessness has never known bounds. In 2012, she barely squeaked through a three-year House Ethics Committee investigation after abusing her position to funnel $12 million in bailout money to her husband’s bank.

Her Russian investments will surprise no one in her district, where impromptu signs declaring the congresswoman a “poverty pimp” and a race baiter have been popping up for years.

Waters’ 2015 disclosure statement details her family’s investments in BlackRock’s Russia-connected Global Allocation and Balanced funds.

2015 SEC filings for both funds advise (https://archive.fo/AalZS) of their involvement in Russian precious metals and securities:

A Fund may invest in the equity securities of companies that explore for, extract, process or deal in precious metals (e.g., gold, silver and platinum), and in asset-based securities indexed to the value of such metals. … The major producers of gold include the Republic of South Africa, Russia, Canada, the United States, Brazil and Australia. … A Fund may invest a portion of its assets in securities issued by companies located in Russia.

In the midst of a March meltdown comparing the Trump administration, the Ku Klux Klan and Russia, Waters told her Twitter followers to, “Follow the money.”

A Sept. 2015 BlackRock Balanced SEC filing (https://archive.fo/AUhWd) reveals her fund’s $2.8 million in obligations to the Russian Federation.

Plus, Waters’ BlackRock Global fund held $3 million in Russian assets, at the same time her family profited!

On Thursday, GotNews exposed another Democrat conspiracy theorist, Virginia Senator Mark Warner, for his millions in Russian profits. Warner is obstructing a Trump anti-terror nominee until Warner gets personal financial documents from former Trump advisers.

Will the loony Democrats making up fantasies about Trump ever investigate their own Russian ties?

Especially as, this year, the investors handling Waters’ retirement are excited to dump more client money into the land of Vladimir Putin.

From Forbes, Jan. 27:

Sorry haters, Russia has survived sanctions. It survived $35 oil. And it survived two years of recession. Say what you will about Vladimir Putin, Russia’s economic management team has got its stuff together. And for that reason, BlackRock says Russia is a buy.

“What gets all of the attention regarding Russia is the geopolitics. But for all the negative opinion you can have out there on Russia, from an economic standpoint it’s been amazing. We are overweight Russian equities,” says Gerardo Rodriguez, a fund manager with BlackRock in New York.

Don’t hold your breath for the suck-up “journalists” on Capitol Hill to ask Waters if she has divested from Russia.

Murdered DNC Staffer Seth Rich Had WikiLeaks Links According to Private Investigator

The Democratic National Committee staffer who was gunned down on July 10 on a Washington, D.C., street just steps from his home had leaked thousands of internal emails to WikiLeaks, investigative sources told Fox News.

A federal investigator who reviewed an FBI forensic report – generated within 96 hours after DNC staffer Seth Rich's murder – detailing the contents Rich’s computer said he made contact with WikiLeaks through Gavin MacFadyen, a now-deceased American investigative reporter, documentary filmmaker, and director of WikiLeaks who was living in London at the time.

“I have seen and read the emails between Seth Rich and WikiLeaks,” the federal investigator told Fox News, confirming the MacFadyen connection. He said the emails are in possession of the FBI, while the stalled case is in the hands of the Washington Police Department.

The revelation is consistent with the findings of Rod Wheeler, a former DC homicide detective and Fox News contributor and whose private investigation firm was hired by a third party on behalf of Rich’s family to probe the case. Rich was shot from behind in the wee hours, but was not robbed.

“My investigation up to this point shows there was some degree of email exchange between Seth Rich and WikiLeaks,” Wheeler said. “I do believe that the answers to who murdered Seth Rich sits on his computer on a shelf at the DC police or FBI headquarters.”

The federal investigator, who requested anonymity, said 44,053 emails and 17,761 attachments between Democratic National Committee leaders, spanning from January 2015 through late May 2016, were transferred from Rich to MacFadyen before May 21.

On July 22, just 12 days after Rich was killed, WikiLeaks published internal DNC emails that appeared to show top party officials conspired to stop Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont from becoming the party’s presidential nominee. That controversy resulted in Debbie Wasserman Schultz resigning as DNC chairperson. A number of Sanders supporters refused to back party nominee Hillary Clinton, and some subsequently formed groups to work against Clinton and the party.

The family of murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich has gone head-to-head with their own private investigator after he claimed Rich was in contact with WikiLeaks before he was gunned down last year.

WikiLeaks leader Julian Assange has stopped short of identifying Rich as the source of the emails, but has taken a keen interest in the case, and has not denied working with Rich.

“WikiLeaks has decided to issue a US$20k reward for information leading to conviction for the murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich,” the organization announced.

Woman likely to avoid jail for knife attack

An "extraordinary" Oxford University student who stabbed her ex-boyfriend in the leg may avoid jail as it would affect her career prospects, a judge has said.

Lavinia Woodward, 24, attacked the man at Christ Church college, while she was under the influence of drink and drugs.

She admitted inflicting grievous body harm, the Oxford Mail reported.

At Oxford Crown Court, Judge Ian Pringle QC said he believed the attack was "a complete one-off".

"To prevent this extraordinary, able young lady from following her long-held desire to enter the profession she wishes to, would be a sentence which would be too severe," he said.

During the attack at the college, she thumped him, lunged at him with a bread knife, and stabbed him in the leg.

She also threw a laptop, glass, and jam jar at him before stabbing herself, the court heard.

Three Ways Trump's Tax "Cuts" Will Raise Taxes

Three Ways Trump's Tax "Cuts" Will Raise Taxes

Tax cuts are great when they are actually tax cuts. In a system with a central bank, though, tax cuts are never tax cuts if there are no spending cuts to accompany them. This is because tax cuts without spending cuts simply mean more deficit spending.

Unfortunately, it is clear that under Trump the federal government has every intention of spending as it always has. Indeed, the Trump administration plans to spend even more than its predecessors by raising military spending without making any sizable cuts to any other program.

So what does it mean if the government plans to spend more but says it will cut its revenue via tax cuts? It means there will be more deficit spending. And, contrary to what Dick Cheney may think, deficits do matter, and they mean higher costs for many millions of Americans.

If we define a "tax" as a cost imposed on Americans by the government, then Trump's tax cuts will do nothing to lower these costs, and will only increase them in at least three ways:

- More deficits mean more borrowing, which means the taxpayers will have to pay for more to service the debt.

- Since the US is already deeply in debt and has a central bank, the Fed will increase the money supply to help pay for the deficits, thus foisting onto Americans higher taxes in the form of the stealth "inflation tax."

- Continued high levels of government spending will continue to drive up prices of goods and services that the government wants.

Let's look at each effect in more detail.

More Borrowing

Even without a central bank to monetize the debt, more borrowing means more taxes. It just means the tax bill has been pushed out into the future.

For example, in fiscal year 2015, 6 percent of the federal budget went to paying interest on debt. That's about $221 billion, or more than one-fourth of the entire defense budget. [see pic related]

Moreover, the constant flooding of the market with government bonds entices investors away from private sector investments and moves them toward government debt instead. Since governments have the power to tax, government debt is often more attractive than private debt.

As a result, it becomes more difficult for small businesses and other private enterprises to find investors and to fund private projects. This can still be done, of course, but private businesses must offer higher returns to compete with government bonds.

Thanks to deficit spending, there's less private sector investment to go around.

The "Inflation Tax

Now, some people may look at that $221 billion paid out in interest on debts and say "hey, it's only 6 percent of the budget, and that's no big deal given the low interest rates paid on government debt."

But here's the rub: debt service is only 6 percent of the budget because the central bank is pursuing "accommodative" monetary policy to push down interest rates.

Since 2009, the Federal Reserve's balance sheet has swelled to enormous levels, which increases demand for government debt, and thus lowers the interest totals that the government must pay. And where does the Fed get the money to buy up all these assets? In many cases, it simply creates new money. Then, when the Fed buys assets — including government debt — that money enters the economy and drives up prices. In recent years, the resulting price inflation has been found in assets such as real estate and stocks. In many cases, we see prices remain stable when they would otherwise be falling.

Thus, most holders of US dollars see prices rise as the value of their dollars shrink. Don't like rent growth of 10 percent per year? Are you priced out of the housing market? Thank — in part — the Fed's monetization of the debt.

And there's another reason the central bank wants to keep buying assets with new money: what would happen if the central bank sold off its assets and allowed the interest rates on government debt to rise?

The total amount of the federal budget going to debt payments would rise, and we'd be looking at a debt bill totaling far more than 6 percent of the budget. In response, Congress would most likely have to cut entitlement spending, military spending, and other payouts to friends. And nobody in Washington wants that.

Ex-Congressman Anthony Weiner Pleads Guilty To 'Sexting' 15-Year-Old Girl

Disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner has admitted exchanging sexually explicit text messages with a 15-year-old girl.

Weiner, 52, surrendered Friday morning and was taken to Manhattan federal court, where he pleaded guilty to a charge of transferring obscene material to a minor.

Weiner cried in court as he apologized to the teen saying, “I have a sickness, but I do not have an excuse.”

The judge told him he would have to register as a sex offender.

He has been released on bail pending his sentencing, which has been set for Sept. 8. He could face a fine and anywhere from no time in prison to up to 10 years. Weiner agreed to not appeal any sentence between 21 and 27 months in prison.

“Weiner’s conduct was not only reprehensible, but a federal crime, one for which he is now convicted and will be sentenced,” Acting Manhattan U.S. Attorney Joon H. Kim said in a statement.

A 15-year-old North Carolina girl claimed in a published report last September that Weiner sent her shirtless photos of himself and more graphic messages, even though she made it clear she is underage.

The report appeared in Britain’s Daily Mail and claimed that the two traded sexually charged messages for several months.

At the time, Weiner said: “I have repeatedly demonstrated terrible judgment about the people I have communicated with online and the things I have sent,” he said. “I am filled with regret and heartbroken for those I hurt. While I have provided the Daily Mail with information showing that I have likely been the subject of a hoax, I have no one to blame but me for putting myself in this position. I am sorry.”

The revelations came a month after photos surfaced of Weiner sexting a woman while his 4-year-old son was sleeping in his bed.

Shortly afterward, Weiner’s wife, Huma Abedin, announced her separation from Weiner. The separation occurred after photos of another sexting scandal appeared in the New York Post.

The investigation into Weiner’s online communications led FBI agents to seize his laptop computer, which led to the discovery of a new cache of emails that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton had sent to Abedin, her aide.

In October, just days before the election, FBI director James Comey stunned the country by announcing that his agency was reopening its closed investigation into Clinton’s handling of State Department business on a private email server so it could analyze the newly discovered correspondence.

That inquiry was brief. Comey announced shortly before the election that the new emails contained nothing to change his view that Clinton could not be charged with a crime. But Clinton partly blamed her election loss to Republican Donald Trump on Comey’s announcement.

Weiner resigned from Congress in 2011 in the wake of a sexting scandal. In 2013, he mounted a bid for mayor, but became embroiled in a second scandal and lost the Democratic primary to Mayor Bill de Blasio.

Saudi Arabia Greets Trump With Billions of Dollars of Deals

Saudi Arabia welcomed U.S. President Donald Trump with agreements for deals worth tens of billions of dollars on Saturday as he embarked on his first state visit to the kingdom, which is undertaking unprecedented economic reforms.

The Public Investment Fund, Saudi Arabia’s sovereign wealth fund, is contributing $20 billion in an infrastructure investment fund with Blackstone Group LP. The fund will eventually double in size “from other investors,” according to a statement. Saudi Aramco said it signed 16 accords with 11 companies valued at about $50 billion. One initial deal – worth $15 billion – was signed with General Electric Co. The U.S. and Saudi Defense Ministry also negotiated a package of about $110 billion, according to a White House transcript on Friday.

“I can’t imagine another business day that’s been as good for the United States or for the kingdom,” U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said in the Saudi capital, dismissing recent mainstream media propaganda and hyperbole.

Saudi Arabia, the world’s biggest oil exporter, is eager to reset relations with the new U.S. administration after feeling shunned by President Barack Obama, who crafted the 2015 nuclear deal with their Shiite rival Iran. The kingdom is also embarking on plans to diversify its economy away from oil – including the sale of a stake in Aramco – after crude prices slumped by half over the past three years.

Officials gave different figures for the value of all the deals signed. Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir said the agreements that were concluded valued more than $380 billion, $30 billion more than what was announced by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in the same news conference. Earlier in the day, Saudi Cabinet Minister Mohammed Alsheikh put the total at about $300 billion.

Honeywell International Inc., Nabors Industries Ltd., Exxon Mobil Corp. and Lockheed Martin Corp. were among other U.S. firms to sign accords Saturday after American corporate titans met local business heads in Riyadh.

“Many of us sitting at the table are overseeing substantial investments in the United States,” Energy Minister Khalid Al-Falih said on a panel at the inaugural Saudi-U.S. CEO Forum that included Saudi billionaire Lubna Al-Olayan and Finance Minister Mohammed Al-Jadaan.

The kingdom’s PIF also said it contributed in SoftBank Group Corp.’s Vision Fund, in addition to contributions from Mubadala Investment Co., Apple Inc., Foxconn Technology Co., Qualcomm Inc. and Sharp Corp. SoftBank announced its first close of the fund Saturday with $93 billion of commitments. The Saudis may put as much as $45 billion into the venture, people aware of the matter said in January.

The kingdom’s new defense company Saudi Arabian Military Industries was also due to sign four “large deals” with leading global technology, military and industrial firms, Al-Falih said, without naming the companies.

f Trump Were a C.E.O., He’d Be Fired Today

Trump has built his political career on his reputation as a successful businessman, so it seems fair to assess his recent performance as President as if he were a C.E.O. running U.S.A., Inc. The report card isn’t pretty. Indeed, if Trump were the chief executive of a public company, the firm’s non-executive directors probably would have been huddled in a crisis meeting on Tuesday morning, deciding whether to issue him a pink slip.

In such a corporate scenario, the board members would likely decide they had no choice but to oust Trump to protect the reputation of the company and prevent further damage. During the past week, he has twice messed up monumentally, doing grave harm to his own credibility and undermining the country’s reputation around the world. And these were just his latest mistakes. During his four months in the corner office, Trump has repeatedly shown that he is patently unsuited for the position he holds, and he has also demonstrated a chronic inability to change the way he operates.

It was bad enough when, this time last week, he fired one of the company’s most senior compliance employees, James Comey, and then went on television and contradicted the official version of the dismissal, which his deputy, Mike Pence, and others had stated publicly. Not for the first time since Trump took over, the firm’s public-relations department was left scrambling, and Pence was sorely embarrassed. Trump’s subsequent outbursts on Twitter, in which he appeared to threaten Comey, only made a bad situation worse. The entire episode confirmed the impression that Trump puts his own interests, and his personal grievances, ahead of his duties to the company.

But that wasn’t the nadir. On Monday we learned, courtesy of a blockbuster story in the Washington Post, of another big blunder on Trump’s part. The day after he canned Comey, Trump revealed some of the company’s trade secrets to senior executives from a key rival, Russia Corporation, which only last year did all it could to sabotage one of U.S.A., Inc.,’s key product launches. Just how much damage Trump’s indiscretions have inflicted on the company isn’t yet known. But it’s clear that he was guilty of a serious breach of trust, and another stunning error of judgment.

Since he was chosen as C.E.O., last November, it has been one thing after another. But, partly because stock in the company has risen despite it all, most of U.S.A., Inc.,’s senior executives and big shareholders have until now stayed loyal to Trump. On Monday, however, there were signs of dissension in the ranks, with some people in the company registering alarm at what is going on at the top.

Population Control? Denmark Warns DTP Vaccine Increases Child Mortality Rate Tenfold

A Danish scientific study warns that children vaccinated with the DTP vaccine may face a mortality rate up to ten times higher than their unvaccinated peers.

While the CDC and the World Health Organization refuse to perform vaccine safety studies or publish reports on vaccinated vs. unvaccinated children, the data from the Danish government study lends further weight to the argument that the public have a right to know more about vaccine safety.

The rare study, funded in part by the Danish government and led by Dr. Soren Wengel Mogensen, was published in January in EBioMedicine.

Dr. Mogensen and his team of scientists found that African children inoculated with the DTP (diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis) vaccine had a 5-10 times greater mortality rate than their unvaccinated peers.

The data suggests that, while the vaccine may protect against infection from those three bacteria, it significantly weakens the immune system and damages overall health, making children more susceptible to dying from other causes.

Worldmercuryproject.org reports: https://archive.fo/JUKTz

The scientists term the study a “natural experiment” since a birthday-based vaccination system employed for the Bandim Health Project (BHP) in Guinea Bissau, West Africa had the effect of creating a vaccinated cohort and a similarly situated unvaccinated control group.

In the time period covered by this study, Guinea-Bissau had 50% child mortality rates for children up to age 5. Starting in 1978, BHP health care workers contacted pregnant mothers and encouraged them to visit infant weighing sessions provided by a BHP team every three months after their child’s birth.

Beginning in 1981, BHP offered vaccinations at the weighing sessions. Since the DPT vaccine and OPV (oral polio) immunizations were offered only to children who were at least three months of age at the weighing sessions, the children’s random birthdays allowed for analysis of deaths between 3 and 5 months of age depending on vaccination status.

So, for example, a child born on January 1st and weighed on April 1st would be vaccinated, but a child born on February 1st would not be vaccinated until their following visit at age 5 months on July 1st.

In the primary analysis, DTP-vaccinated infants experienced mortalities five times greater than DTP-unvaccinated infants.

Mortalities to vaccinated girls were 9.98 times those among females in the unvaccinated control group, while mortalities to vaccinated boys were 3.93 times the controls.

Oddly, the scientists found that children receiving the oral polio vaccine simultaneously with DTP fared much better than children who did not. The OPV vaccine appeared to modify the negative effect of the DTP vaccine, reducing mortalities to 3.52 times those experienced among the control group.

Overall, mortalities among vaccinated children were 10 times the control group when children received only the DTP.

Mogensen and his colleagues hypothesize that the DTP vaccine might weaken a child’s immune system against non-target infections.

They conclude, “Though protective against the target disease, DTP may increase susceptibility to unrelated infections… DTP was associated with 5-fold higher mortality than being unvaccinated. No prospective study has shown beneficial survival effects of DTP.”

The Mogensen study supports the conclusions of previous investigations into child survival following vaccination. An earlier study by Dr. Peter Aaby, of the introduction of DTP in rural Guinea-Bissau, indicated a 2-fold higher mortality among vaccinated children (Aaby et al. 2004a). The Aaby report is one of several early studies that documented vaccination status and followed children prospectively.

WikiLeaks Releases Athena, DNSCACHE Backdoor

WikiLeaks has released the latest in its series of #Vault leaks on Friday discussing malware that provides remote beacon and loader capabilities on target computers using several Microsoft Windows operating systems. The five released documents are under the codename “Athena.”

https://wikileaks.org/vault7/#Athena

The operating systems which can be targeted are: Windows XP Pro SP3 32-bit, Windows 7 32-bit/64-bit, Windows 8.1 32-bit/64-bit, Windows 2008 Enterprise Server, Windows 2012 Server, and Windows 10.

Once Athena is installed on a target computer, it will use a listening post to receive beacons from the operator, allowing it to give a signal and trigger additional malware payloads undetected on the target computer.

One document contained in the leak also says that Athena “hijacks” the DNSCACHE, a temporary database being maintained by the operating system to record internet traffic on the computer and to hide its presence. Only during a signal also would the command module for Athena load, before it gets destroyed when completed.

According to the leaked documents, the CIA cooperated with the private cybersecurity firm Siege Technologies to develop the Athena malware. Siege Technologies founder Jason Syversen with a background in cryptography and hacking said he set out to create something the equivalent of the military’s so-called probability of kill metric, a statistical analysis of whether an attack is likely to succeed.

Syversen said he is also more comfortable working on electronic warfare, noting that it is a little different than bombs and nuclear weapons, add to the fact that he thinks the latter is a morally complex field to be in. He argued that at least with electronic warfare, instead of bombing things and having collateral damage, civilian casualties can really be reduced. He said such translates to a “win for everybody.”

WikiLeaks also described Siege Technologies a “self-proclaimed cyber security company”. It is based in New Hampshire.

Harvard Study Reveals Yuge Extent of Anti-Trump Media Bias

A major new study out of Harvard University has revealed the true extent of the mainstream media’s bias against Donald Trump.

Academics at the Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy analyzed coverage from Trump’s first 100 days in office across 10 major TV and print outlets.

They found that the tone of some outlets was negative in as many as 98% of reports, significantly more hostile than the first 100 days of the three previous administrations:

https://archive.fo/bB891/91989277423dd7ca8d695cf35d5996fdb364053e

The academics based their study on seven US outlets and three European ones.

In America they analyzed CNN, NBC, CBS, Fox News, the New York Times, the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal.

They also took into account the BBC, the UK’s Financial Times and the German public broadcaster ARD.

Every outlet was negative more often than positive.

Only Fox News, which features some of Trump’s most enthusiastic supporters and is often given special access to the President, even came close to positivity.

Scientists Just Found Something That Will Drastically Change The Global Warming Debate

Scientists looking at forest cover in some of the world’s driest places found something astounding — “lost” forests covering an area nearly seven times the size of Texas.

“We found new dryland forest on all inhabited continents, but mainly in sub-Saharan Africa, around the Mediterranean, central India, coastal Australia, western South America, northeastern Brazil, northern Colombia and Venezuela, and northern parts of the boreal forests in Canada and Russia,” biologists Andrew Lowe and Ben Sparrow wrote of their study, which had 28 other co-authors.

“In Africa, our study has doubled the amount of known dryland forest,” Lowe and Sparrow wrote in a recent oped for The Conversation detailing how they “found” millions of acres of “lost” forests not accounted for in previous research.

Lowe and Sparrow’s study found that 1.3 billion hectares of drylands with more than 10 percent tree cover in 2015, which is a 40 to 47 percent increase from previous estimates. Finding 1.2 billion acres of “missing” forests is equivalent to nearly seven Texases.

https://archive.fo/7G5c4

“This increases current estimates of global forest cover by at least 9%,” reads the study’s abstract. Lowe and Sparrow say the increase in forest cover means forests hold up to 20 percent more carbon dioxide than previously thought.

The co-authors say previous studies missed the vast amounts of forests on drylands because they were based off “older, low-resolution satellite images that did not include ground validation.” These forests also have relatively low tree density.

Patrick Michaels, a climate scientist at the libertarian Cato Institute, said the study reinforces the argument that man-made carbon dioxide emissions are causing global greening, in contrast to the global browning predicted by climate models.

“This may lead to a remarkable hypothesis — that one of the reasons the forested regions were undercounted in previous surveys (among other reasons) is that there wasn’t enough vegetation present to meet Bastin’s criterion for ‘forest,’ which is greater than 10% tree cover, and carbon dioxide and global warming changed that,” Michaels wrote in a blog post.

Lowe and Sparrow say climate models predict drylands to expand as human activities cause the Earth to warm, and argue dryland forests should be conserved to help fight global warming.

But previous studies suggest the same emissions scientists blame for global warming may also be increasing vegetation and tree cover through carbon dioxide “fertilization.”

A 2016 study by an international team of scientists found about half the Earth’s landmass showed “significant” greening while only 4 percent was browning.

“We were able to tie the greening largely to the fertilizing effect of rising atmospheric CO2 concentration by tasking several computer models to mimic plant growth observed in the satellite data,” Ranga Myneni, a study co-author, said in a statement.

That same study found that while climate models incorrectly predicted browning to occur in the western U.S., satellite observations showed widespread greening in the region.

FEC Boss Who Tried to Censor Alternative Media Now on Soros Payroll

RELATED: >>>/goodnews/206

The former chairwoman of the Federal Election Commission, who famously eyed regulating the politics of conservative outlets like the Drudge Report, has joined an advocacy group funded by George Soros and run by his son.

Ann Ravel is the first fellow listed with the California advocacy group New America.

Her fellowship began in March and pays a $30,000 stipend.

"We want to help amplify the work of each of our fellows, both to help them better articulate and reach their target audience, and to raise their profiles as change-makers," according to the group.

Since leaving the FEC, Ravel has continued to speak out for more election regulation, especially on the internet where she sees political advertising shifting to in the next presidential contest.

She has applauded calls for regulating political speech and spending on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube and this week endorsed tracing the funding of online ads and regulating individual Twitter accounts.

In a tweet, for example, she drew attention to a report of a Twitter supporter of Donald Trump named "Amy" who the San Francisco Examiner could not find.

Cincinnati Mayor Issues Proclamation Honoring Cop Killer Nig, Forced to Take it Back, Sobs and Cries

Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley apologized after his office inadvertently issued a proclamation honoring a man who ambushed and killed a Cincinnati police officer.

"I am really sorry that my office, that we mistakenly issued a proclamation on behalf of a man that killed, murdered Sonny Kim," Cranley said Thursday night.

Cranley choked back tears as he spoke at a local police union hall. His face was red as he paused several times during his brief, tear-filled statement.

"He was a hero," Cranley said about Kim, a father of three, who was fatally shot in June 2015.

Kim had responded to a 911 call after Trepierre Hummons, 21, contacted emergency operators twice that day, pretending to be a concerned witness who had seen a man acting erratically with a gun. When Kim arrived on scene, he was shot multiple times by Hummons, according to police. Hummons opened fired at two more officers before he was shot and killed.

Last week, the mayor's office received a request for a proclamation from Ronald Hummons for his son's birthday. The request didn't contain his son's full name and the staff member reviewing the request wasn't aware that the man being honored had killed Kim, according to the mayor's letter of apology to the Cincinnati Fraternal Order of Police.

A staff member wrote the proclamation, granting June 1, 2017, "Tre Day" in Cincinnati. The proclamation was then approved by the communications director.

Here's a copy of the letter from Mayor Cranley to FOP president. @WCPO pic.twitter.com/5429QV6sYo

— Ashley Zilka (@ashleyzilka) May 18, 2017

"Neither of them looked further into the context of the proclamation," stated the mayor's letter, which was carried by CNN affiliate WCPO. "They were both unaware that TrePierre was the man who murdered Sonny Kim."

Once the mayor's office became aware of the mistake, it retracted the proclamation.

"This was a huge mistake," Cranley said. "It was not done intentionally. It was a human error, but the buck stops with me."

The mayor said he apologized to Kim's widow, the Cincinnati Police chief and the officer who returned fire when Kim was shot. Cranley voiced his support for the police department, got choked up and stepped away from the podium.

Cincinnati Fraternal Order of Police President Dan Hils said he felt sick when he heard about the proclamation, but that Cranley appeared to own up to the error.

"He's supportive of law enforcement," Hils told WCPO regarding the mayor. "This was a breakdown in his office. I'm very glad that he said he was taking responsibility for it. I believe real leaders do that even in the worst of times."

Researchers: Hidden Signals in TV Ads Direct Smartphones to Spy on Owners

Secret messages embedded in television adverts can direct smartphones to spy on their owners using listening software, according to German researchers.

There’s been a huge growth in Android apps using software that’s designed to search for inaudible “ultrasonic” signals, and these signals can contain code which orders apps to begin tracking people’s location, what they’re watching on television and even collect personal information such as political affiliation and pornography habits, the researchers warn.

The software, called Silverpush, is designed to listen to “audio beacons” which humans can’t hear, and has allegedly been used by corporations such as McDonald’s and Krispy Kreme.

Apps that use this software can “precisely link the watching of even sensitive content such as adult movies or political documentations to a single individual – even at varying locations,” the researchers said. “Advertisers can deduce what and how long an individual is watching and obtain a detailed user profile to deliver highly customized advertisements.”

“The monitoring functionality is already deployed in mobile applications and might become a serious privacy threat in the near future,” the researchers added.

The researchers from Braunschweig University of Technology visited dozens of stores in two unnamed European cities and found four stores broadcasting these beacons.

They also noted a surge in the number of Android apps which searched for these audio beacons, from 39 in 2015 to 234 presently.

This technology was already a concern to the American Federal Trade Commission, who wrote to app developers last year asking them to clarify if they were using software like Silverpush.

“These apps were capable of listening in the background and collecting information about consumers without notifying them,” said Jessica Rich, director of the FTC’s Bureau of Consumer Protection. “Companies should tell people what information is collected, how it is collected, and who it’s shared with.”

The notion of smart devices being able to spy on citizens is nothing new.

Earlier this year, WikiLeaks released a trove of CIA documents as part of the Vault 7 leaks, detailing how the agency created malware called “Weeping Angel” which turns Samsung smart TVs into listening devices, even when the device is off.

“Weeping Angel can also reportedly extract usernames, passwords and Wi-Fi keys – allowing access to the target’s network and other connected devices,” reported Mikael Thalen.

Liberal Journalists Are Dumber Than Rest Of Population, New Study Finds

A recent scientific study just proved something that viewers of CNN have probably suspected for years: Journalists' brains function at a lower level than the rest of the population.

>A study conducted by neuroscientist Tara Swift and the London Press Club determined that "the highest functions of journalists brains were operating at a lower level than the average population, due to dehydration, self-medicating, and fueling their brains with caffeine and high-sugar foods".

Journalists' brains show a lower level of executive function - that is, the ability of the brain to regulate emotions, suppress biases, switch between tasks, solve complex problems and think flexibly and creatively - than the average person because to their heavy drinking, and caffeine consumption. They also eat too many high-sugar foods, and don't devote enough time to mindfulness.

Dr Swart recruited 31 journalists from across the industry to participate in the study. Participants were required to record their eating and drinking habits, answer a brain profile questionaire, take blood tests, and wear heart-rate variability monitors.

The study was initially launched to examine how journalists manage to "survive and thrive" while managing such high levels of occupational stress. "Journalism," the press release notes, "is one of many industries under an increasing amount of pressure in the digital age. Low pay, frequent deadlines, and high levels of accountability all contribute to high reported stress levels."

Donald Trump’s 2018 Budget Request Seeks $2.6 Billion For New Border Wall Infrastructure

President Donald Trump will ask Congress next Tuesday to provide $2.6 billion in the September budget deal for border infrastructure in 2018, including the construction of new border walls, according to details provided to the New York Times.

According to officials, $1.6 billion of that money would go toward materials to build the wall. That would initially be used for continuing the levy [sic] wall in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas and replacing existing fencing in El Paso and in San Diego.

The remaining $1 billion would go toward planning for the rest of the wall and other security measures.

The Times‘ report did not explain how many extra miles of border fences or walls would be built, or even how much of the money would be spent building a fence or wall, but it did report that:

the government intends to buy all sorts of equipment that will supplement or substitute for a physical wall. The budget request will allocate $239 million for aircraft and aviation sensors; $197 million for fixed surveillance technology, including towers, radar and cameras; and $202 million for what it described as “critical equipment” such as radios, computers and weapons … [plus] $111 million allocated for roads to gain access to parts of the border that are now hard to reach.

“Levee wall” is a term for strong flood-control walls alongside rivers, particularly along the Rio Grande river which marks the border with Mexico.

Trump’s primary promise in his 2016 campaign was the construction of the border wall, which is being desperately resisted by legislators who went to preserve the northward flow of roughly 550,000 illegal immigrant workers and customers per year up to businesses and donors in their districts.

However, illegal immigration has less of an impact on Americans than does the federal government’s policy of inflating the new labor supply by roughly 25 percent. Each year, four million young Americans enter the labor force, but the federal government also invites 1 million legal immigrants and 1 million temporary workers to compete for jobs against Americans. Also, legislators in Congress have proposed many bills to further increase the legal inflow of foreign workers.

The $2.6 billion request “seems less ambition, there’s no question about it,” said Mark Krikorian, director of the Center for Immigration Studies. The modest request may suggest they are trying to reduce opposition from Democrats in Congress, Krikorian added. “Maybe they’re trying to come up with something that [Democratic leader Chuck] Schumer won’t shut down the government over… but there’s no reason Schumer won’t threaten a government shutdown in September over wall funding — he did that in April and he got away with it.”

In March, Trump asked for $1 billion to quickly build an extra 48 miles of border fence during 2017. But Democrats threatened to shut down funding until the budget request was rejected, GOP legislators refused to fight for any money to build a wall, and so the May budget supplemental included no funds for new wall construction.

Twitter co-founder: 'Very bad' if Twitter helped Trump

Twitter co-founder Evan Williams apologized for the role Twitter may have played in electing President Trump.

In an interview published Saturday in The New York Times, Williams discussed the president’s March claim to Fox News that “I think that maybe I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for Twitter.”

“It’s a very bad thing, Twitter’s role in that,” Williams told the Times. “If it’s true that he wouldn’t be president if it weren’t for Twitter, then yeah, I’m sorry.”

Killing CIA Informants, China Crippled US Spying Operations

The Chinese government systematically dismantled C.I.A. spying operations in the country starting in 2010, killing or imprisoning more than a dozen sources over two years and crippling intelligence gathering there for years afterward.

Current and former American officials described the intelligence breach as one of the worst in decades. It set off a scramble in Washington’s intelligence and law enforcement agencies to contain the fallout, but investigators were bitterly divided over the cause. Some were convinced that a mole within the C.I.A. had betrayed the United States. Others believed that the Chinese had hacked the covert system the C.I.A. used to communicate with its foreign sources. Years later, that debate remains unresolved.

But there was no disagreement about the damage. From the final weeks of 2010 through the end of 2012, according to former American officials, the Chinese killed at least a dozen of the C.I.A.’s sources. According to three of the officials, one was shot in front of his colleagues in the courtyard of a government building — a message to others who might have been working for the C.I.A.

Still others were put in jail. All told, the Chinese killed or imprisoned 18 to 20 of the C.I.A.’s sources in China, according to two former senior American officials, effectively unraveling a network that had taken years to build.

Assessing the fallout from an exposed spy operation can be difficult, but the episode was considered particularly damaging. The number of American assets lost in China, officials said, rivaled those lost in the Soviet Union and Russia during the betrayals of both Aldrich Ames and Robert Hanssen, formerly of the C.I.A. and the F.B.I., who divulged intelligence operations to Moscow for years.

The previously unreported episode shows how successful the Chinese were in disrupting American spying efforts and stealing secrets years before a well-publicized breach in 2015 gave Beijing access to thousands of government personnel records, including intelligence contractors. The C.I.A. considers spying in China one of its top priorities, but the country’s extensive security apparatus makes it exceptionally hard for Western spy services to develop sources there.

At a time when the C.I.A. is trying to figure out how some of its most sensitive documents were leaked onto the internet two months ago by WikiLeaks, and the F.B.I. investigates possible ties between President Trump’s campaign and Russia, the unsettled nature of the China investigation demonstrates the difficulty of conducting counterespionage investigations into sophisticated spy services like those in Russia and China.

The C.I.A. and the F.B.I. both declined to comment.

Details about the investigation have been tightly held. Ten current and former American officials described the investigation on the condition of anonymity because they did not want to be identified discussing the information.

The first signs of trouble emerged in 2010. At the time, the quality of the C.I.A.’s information about the inner workings of the Chinese government was the best it had been for years, the result of recruiting sources deep inside the bureaucracy in Beijing, four former officials said. Some were Chinese nationals who the C.I.A. believed had become disillusioned with the Chinese government’s corruption.

But by the end of the year, the flow of information began to dry up. By early 2011, senior agency officers realized they had a problem: Assets in China, one of their most precious resources, were disappearing.

Theresa May Wants to Create New, Regulated Internet, Controled by UK Government

British Prime Minister Theresa May wants the UK to pioneer on-line speech regulations that would effectively create a new, government-controlled Internet.

The leader of the Conservative Party spearheaded a “manifesto” demanding new controls on how the Internet works, possibly by making radical changes to the Internet’s architecture, paving the way for the eradication of free speech on-line.

“Some people say that is it not for government to regulate when it comes to technology and the Internet,” the manifesto stated. “We disagree.”

The goal is for Britain to emerge as the “global leader in the regulation of the use of personal data and the Internet.”

According to the manifesto: (see article)

In harnessing the digital revolution, we must take steps to protect the vulnerable and give people confidence to use the Internet without fear of abuse, criminality or exposure to horrible content. Our starting point is that online rules should reflect those that govern our lives offline. It should be as unacceptable to bully online as it is in the playground, as difficult to groom a young child on the internet as it is in a community, as hard for children to access violent and degrading pornography online as it is in the high street, and as difficult to commit a crime digitally as it is physically.

May apparently wants to wrestle influence away from tech giants such as Facebook and Google, which are already in bed with the state, to allow the government to directly decide what can and cannot be said or accessed on-line.

That said, she will likely face some resistance from the tech elite who, despite being authoritarians themselves, don’t want politicians to control the Internet without their input.

“The new rules would include laws that make it harder than ever to access pornographic and other websites. The government will be able to place restrictions on seeing adult content and any exceptions would have to be justified to ministers, the manifesto suggests,” reported the Independent. “The manifesto even suggests that the government might stop search engines like Google from directing people to pornographic websites.”

Similar demands for on-line censorship are also erupting in the U.S.

As Infowars reported on Thursday, “Net Neutrality” activists demanded the FCC ban the Drudge Report, Infowars and Breitbart off the Internet entirely.

DNC Staffer Leaks Democrat Programs Used To Spam Social Media

An anonymous follower of 8ch.net who identified himself as a DNC staffer posted on the site to leak the programs Democrats used to spam social media platforms presumably in a desperate attempt to sway public opinion and push liberal views.

The anonymous source said he (although if could also be a ‘she’) cannot provide further verification regarding his work at the DNC without giving away his identity. But he made a promise to release at 12 EST the DNC bots they use for Reddit, Youtube, and Twitter.

He shared that he saw the following relevant links from another site:

http://i.imgur.com/mNfIECX.png

http://i.imgur.com/KXWgVTo.png

http://i.imgur.com/feLctGc.png

The source said he is motivated to leak the bots due to a conscience call and love for his country. He said the DNC is no longer doing it for the love of America as Democrats love to brag about, but are just driven by the need to promote their propaganda. The leaker said he can no longer deal with it. He specified the bots as:

• Reddit Vote Bot

• Reddit account Creator

• News Article to Reddit (the DNC supply us with a list, it will automatically post them, and then upvote them)

• Youtube Article creator (again, the DNC will supply us with the list, it will generate a video and TTS and upload to youtube and share to Reddit and upvote, but the Reddit post and Youtube video)

• Youtube account creator

• Twitter account creator

• Twitter Follower

• Twitter post like/retweet

• Twitter poll bot (will vote on any option we choose)

The leader also said the DNC has more bots which he could not discuss at that moment. He shared he is using TOR so he should be safe.

As always, 8ch.net followers had a lively time discussing the new post. Some expressed doubts if the anonymous guy really works for the DNC, or for just getting links from another site that many followers of 8ch.net do not have fond feelings for, to say it subtly. But a follower said that because he does not bother going to the much-maligned and obviously disliked site by 8ch.net followers, if the anonymous leaker is legitimate, then those tools would still be useful to everyone on 8ch.net.

One user shared useful information. He said it is not hard to create bots to do those things. He said the hard part is not getting banned for using them. He added that the DNC probably has some deals with those companies that gives them ban immunity.

Good! George Soros Faces a $10 Billion Lawsuit For Tying To Overthrow Democratic Nations

George Soros is now facing a $10 billion lawsuit wich accuses him of meddling in the politics of an poverty sticken African country in order to settle some of his own issues.

This will now be the second major lawsuit that Soros is facing from meddling in foreign government affairs.

Lets hope he finally gets what’s coming to him!

From Fox News: https://archive.fo/RLs8i

The 86-year-old investor, who controls a web of international nonprofits in addition to his vast financial empire, used his sway with the government of Guinea to freeze Israeli company BSG Resources out of the West African nation’s lucrative iron ore mining contracts, according to the suit filed last month in New York Federal Court by BSG Resources.

“Soros was motivated solely by malice, as there was no economic interest he had in Guinea,” BSGR alleges in court papers.

A spokesman for Soros, who regularly supports nascent democratic governments in Eastern Europe and Africa, said the philanthropist has a lifelong interest in helping impoverished nations, and only backed a probe of BSG out of corruption concerns.

Whatever the ultimate outcome in the current case, it is not the first time Soros has been accused of sowing political upheaval to advance a personal agenda.

Critics around the world, including in the U.S. and in Soros’ homeland of Hungary, say the liberal financier often masquerades as a humanitarian while manipulating the political landscape.

“We are committed to use all legal means at our disposal to stop pseudo-civil society spy groups such as the ones funded by George Soros,” Hungary’s top education official, Minister of Human Capacities Zoltan Balog said recently.

Inside The US Government's Plan To Survive Nuclear War While The Rest Of Us Die

In 2011, a staffer at Washingtonian found a government ID in a Metro parking garage and gave it to Garrett M. Graff (the magazine’s editor-in-chief at the time) to track down its owner. “Since I reported about that world, he figured I’d know what to do with it,” Graff says.

Graff immediately noticed something strange.

“The back of the ID had these evacuation instructions on it. And so I got on Google Maps and followed the instructions and they led to a road that very clearly went into the side of a mountain, and you can see on the Google satellite view big concrete bunker doors.”

That discovery inspired Graff to comb through newly declassified documents to learn more about the U.S. government’s plans in the event of a nuclear war or other catastrophe. His research culminated in the new book “Raven Rock: The Story of the U.S. Government’s Secret Plan to Save Itself — While the Rest of Us Die.”

At first, the government didn’t plan to let “the rest of us die.”

“In the early 1950s, the government really hoped and believed it would be able to save most Americans,” Graff says.

As bombs became more destructive, “plans and ambitions gradually shrunk until, realistically, the best they could hope to do is save the senior leadership.”

Drills and disasters have shown that the federal government is too complex and unwieldy to pluck out of D.C. by helicopter and set up in an underground bunker — though that was, and still is, the basic plan, Graff says.

One such shelter is the mountain fortress Graff tracked down: Raven Rock. Here’s more on it, plus other tidbits from doomsday scenarios past and present.

Raven Rock

This compound, carved out of a mountain near the Pennsylvania-Maryland border, contains several freestanding, multistory buildings (on giant, shock-absorbing springs) for a total of 900,000 square feet of office space. It has its own subterranean water supply, too. Raven Rock is where top government and military officials would hide out in the event of a major attack on Washington, D.C.; it was reportedly one of the “undisclosed locations” former Vice President Dick Cheney worked from in the aftermath of the Sept. 11 attacks.

Mount Weather

Another major underground government complex, Mount Weather has been in use since the 1950s. Located at the border of Loudoun and Clarke counties in Virginia, the 600,000-square-foot bunker inside the mountain was once (and still may be) the official evacuation site for Supreme Court justices, documents such as the U.S. Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, and the National Gallery of Art’s most valuable paintings.

E-4B ‘doomsday planes’

These custom-built 747s, also known as “Air Force One When It Counts,” are flying war rooms that follow the president when he travels internationally.

When POTUS is stateside, one plane sits ready on a runway at a Nebraska military base, “fully staffed with battle planners and war planners and meteorologists and anything else you might need to run a nuclear war,” Graff says. The planes are protected from electromagnetic pulse attacks with a fine wire mesh, and they can unfurl a 5-mile-long wire that allows communication with nuclear submarines.

Survival crackers

In the 1960s, the U.S. government distributed 150 million pounds of wheat crackers and biscuits to fallout shelters across America. Packages are still routinely found unopened in civic building basements, and apparently they don’t taste great. “I did actually find on eBay a box of them, but I haven’t been brave enough to try them in part because I have watched enough YouTube videos of other people trying them to know how disgusting they actually are,” Graff says.

Button #13

In the late 1970s, the D.C. mayor’s emergency control center at 300 Indiana Ave. NW had a Plexiglas-shielded button that, when pressed, triggered “Emer-zak,” the broadcast of emergency messages to lobbies, elevators and anywhere else served by the Muzak system.

While much of this is known, given the recent "Gotham Shield" nuclear attack drill and Washington D.C.'s recent "terror attack drill", one can't help but wonder if these old bunkers and emergency systems are getting dusted off… just as Hawaiian officials have already demanded.

Thailand's chunky monkey on diet after gorging on junk food left by tourists

A morbidly obese wild monkey who gorged himself on junk food and soda left behind by tourists has been rescued and placed on a strict diet of lean protein, fruits and vegetables.

Wildlife officials caught the chunky monkey — nicknamed "Uncle Fat" by locals — after photos of the animal started circulating on social media last month.

Wild monkeys roam free in many parts of Thailand, attracting tourists who feed and play with the animals. Most of the monkeys are macaques like Uncle Fat, and they typically weigh around 9 kilograms (20 pounds).

Uncle Fat weighs three times that, tipping the scales at around 26 kilograms (60 pounds).

"It was not easy to catch him," said Kacha Phukem, the wildlife official who conducted the capture and rescue on April 27. "He was the leader of his pack, and when I tried to go in, I had to fight off a flock of them with sticks."

The subordinate monkeys fed into Uncle Fat's bad habits.

"He had minions and other monkeys bringing food for him but he would also re-distribute it to younger monkeys," said Supakarn Kaewchot, a veterinarian in charge of the monkey's diet.

After he ate food given by humans for a while, he developed a fat mass, which became a type of benign tumor," Supakarn said. "He is now in critical condition where there is a high risk of heart disease and diabetes."

Uncle Fat is believed to be between 10 and 15 years old. To help him lose weight, his new diet is limited to 400 grams worth of lean protein, fruits and vegetables twice a day. Supakarn said she hopes that within a few months they can consider releasing him to the wild.

She said Uncle Fat is an example of why people shouldn't feed wild monkeys unhealthy food.

"I understand that people feel sorry for the monkeys and want to feed them when they see them," Supakarn said. "But please don't feed them food that people like to eat like snacks and soda. It is very bad for their health and the problem is entirely man-made."

Even Some Scientists Are Staying Away From "The Internet of Things" ... And For Good Reasons!

Dr. Herbert Lin, one of the nation’s pre-eminent thinkers on cybersecurity policy, shuns the internet-connected devices that fill some American homes.

He’ll have nothing to do with “smart” refrigerators, hands-free home speakers he can call by name, intelligent thermostats and the like.

“People say to me, ‘How can you have a doctorate in physics from MIT and not trust in technology?’ And I look at them and say, ‘How can I have a doctorate in physics from MIT and trust technology?’ ” Lin said.

Part of what he distrusts is the “internet of things,” and the ease with which hackers can penetrate “smart” devices with digital worms and shanghai them into massive robotic networks to launch crippling digital attacks or generate ever greater quantities of spam.

It is a mistrust based on mathematics. Internet-enabled devices are exploding in number. Gartner, a research giant in technology, says the devices will climb from 6.4 billion at the end of last year to 25 billion by 2020. Such growth sharply augments the power of hidden robotic networks, or botnets.

Now, an unseen battle unfolds. Weaponized digital worms are entering the scene and infecting masses of devices that obediently await instructions from a remote master to spring to action, possibly a new botnet attack.

The threat from botnets is so serious that FBI Director James Comey brought them up at a Senate hearing last week, saying the “zombie armies” created from internet devices can do tremendous harm.

“Last month, the FBI – working with our partners, with the Spanish national police – took down a botnet called the Kelihos botnet and locked up the Russian hacker behind that botnet,” Comey said. “He’s now in jail in Spain, and the good people’s computers who had been lashed to that zombie army have now been freed from it.”

Further botnet attacks are inevitable.

“The next one could be just seconds or minutes from happening again,” said J. Kevin Reid, a former FBI agent who leads the national security portfolio at KeyLogic, a Morgantown, West Virginia, firm that offers consulting services to the federal intelligence community.

Many consumers don’t realize that internet-enabled devices are unregulated and insecure – simpleton digital recruits in potential malicious armies.

Even new dolls for children can be forced into rogue botnets, Reid said.

“People would be like, ‘What? My child’s toy?’ Well, toys are pretty fancy nowadays,” Reid said. “They are going after camcorders and [newer] DVD players and other things with this particular intrusion technique.”

In practical terms, that means hackers who control botnets can extort businesses, threatening to overwhelm targets with traffic unless they pay. They can also amplify the power of those sending spam.

Why Are 'Net Neutrality' Supporters Openly Calling For Banning News Websites?

Alt-left advocates for net neutrality, who say they want a "free and open internet," want to ban the Drudge Report.

Members of the alt-left who have been tied to violent protests in the past picketed outside the Federal Communications Commission on Thursday in protest of Chairman Ajit Pai's proposal to reverse net neutrality rules. The FCC will vote to undo the Obama era Title II rule that classified Internet service providers as utilities, subjecting them to more federal regulation.

Protesters covering their faces held signs that read "Ban Drudge," with a no symbol over the Drudge Report, the highly trafficked news website run by Matt Drudge. Other protesters held signs to ban other news websites, including Breitbart and InfoWars.

Organizers of the campaign "Protect Our Internet" are connected to PopularResistance.org, which features several members of the antifascist (antifa) campaign.

Then there's these "antifa" guys. Pro-net neutrality folks not happy — @mattfwood tells me they're fighting for opposite principles. pic.twitter.com/z8z2Sg7Z60

— Brendan Bordelon (@BrendanBordelon) May 18, 2017

Protect Our Internet claims its mission is to "keep the internet vibrant, free and equal."

The campaign also claims net neutrality rules are "protecting our freedom to use the internet!"

A report released this week found that net neutrality regulations lead to higher internet prices for consumers and less innovation.

Internationally Known Broadcast Journalist Arrested for Homolestation in the Pedophile Ring Roundup

Television News Personality Personally Fucked Thirty-Five Young Boy Asses

The arrest of A Current Affair reporter Ben McCormack has allegedly been linked to a pedophile ring membership list discovered by police in Western Australia.

Police were investigating a suspected child rapist when they uncovered phone records, computer files and other information about the ring, which allegedly included school teachers and Mr McCormack, 9NEWS understands.

The information was reportedly shared with police across the country, and led to the arrest of a West Australian Catholic primary school teacher.

The West Australian investigation began in February, when the alleged rapist was arrested and charged with 35 offences.

The Daily Telegraph reports a Queensland teacher was also arrested in the operation.

Mr McCormack, 42, was arrested in Sydney on April 6 and has been charged with two counts of using a carriage service for child pornography material.

New South Wales police allege he engaged in explicit conversations about children with an adult male and discussed child pornography.

Mr McCormack was released on bail and was later admitted to a private hospital, where he continues to receive treatment.

His lawyer Sam Macedone said the charges against him have "nothing to do with the usual child pornography".

"None of the charges that have been levelled against him involves pictures or explicit details of young kids," he said.

"It's got nothing to do with the usual child pornography where you've got young children being photographed or in a video or anything like that. It's nothing more than a mutual riding of the youngsters and that's all there is."

Mr McCormack's case is scheduled to return to court on July 4.

Jhadi attempts to get into cockpit!

HONOLULU (AP) — Two U.S. fighter jets were summoned Friday to escort a flight from Los Angeles to Hawaii after an unruly man was subdued by passengers and flight attendants, who used a drink cart to block him from the front of the plane.

The man, identified by law enforcement officials as Anil Uskanil, 25, of Turkey, was duct-taped to his seat until the plane landed in Honolulu and federal agents boarded the plane and arrested him, passenger Lee Lorenzen said.

"The flight attendants just were really heroic," Lorenzen said. "By the time we landed and the FBI took him into custody, he was very mellow."

American Airlines Flight 31 had 181 passengers and six crew members aboard, said airline spokeswoman Katie Cody, who did not provide details on the incident.

The trouble with Uskanil actually began about eight hours before the flight departed. He was arrested before dawn at Los Angeles International Airport for opening a door that led onto an airfield ramp, according to Los Angeles Airport Police, who provided Uskanil's identity to The Associated Press.

Police say Uskanil had been drinking but didn't meet the criteria for public drunkenness. He was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor trespassing, given a date to appear in court and allowed to take the flight to Honolulu.

Passengers noticed him before the plane even took off.

Mark and Donna Basden were among the first to board the plane and found a laptop in the seat pocket of Mark Basden. The Albuquerque, New Mexico, couple assumed it was from the previous flight.

A flight attendant said it must belong to a man in the bathroom.

Then a "disheveled looking fellow" walked out, Donna Basden said.

Mark Basden handed the man the laptop, telling him it had been in his seat. He said the man scowled at him, took the laptop, opened it and closed it and then tried to sit in another seat in first class.

Donna Basden said the man "clearly looked out of place," but he didn't say anything. The flight attendant went up to him and asked to see his boarding pass, then when she looked at it she told him he was in row 35 and sent him to the back of the plane.

Mom Sent On Fact-Finding Mission To Read What Parking Sign Down Street Says

INDIANAPOLIS—Upon discovering what appeared to be an ideal parking spot Friday, members of the Jowhari family reportedly dispatched their mother, Anita, on a fact-finding mission to investigate the details of a nearby street sign. “I can’t see from here—find out when they tow and if there’s a thing with street sweeping on certain days,” said Jowhari’s daughter Katie, 15, who remained in the idling vehicle with her father and brother while her mother jogged down the sidewalk to gather the details required to determine if it was, in fact, safe to leave their vehicle. “And what’s that little red sign below the green one?

BASED AS FUCK! President Duterte Warns George Soros: ‘There Is A Bounty On Your Head’

George Soros cancelled a proposed “humanitarian visit” to the Philippines after President Duterte warned him “there is a bounty on your head in these islands.“

Soros is a strong candidate for south-east Asia’s most unpopular man after being widely blamed for crashing the Thai and Malaysian economies in 1997 and sparking the Asian financial crisis through ruthless currency speculation.

President Duterte hasn’t forgiven the globalist financier. The man dubbed “Duterte Harry” by the Filipino people is also wise to the Soros agenda of divide and conquer and his brand of media manipulation.

The Philippine House of Representatives approved a proposal last week to reinstate the death penalty, and the president took the opportunity to fire a warning at George Soros: “There is a special place in hell for you, idiot. Set one foot in this country and my duty is to make you go straight there.”

Duterte and Soros have been locked in a war of words for years, with the Philippine president accusing Soros of destabilizing Asian democracies and financing editorial hit-pieces against him and his country in media outlets around the world.

Critics around the world, including in the U.S. and in Soros’ homeland of Hungary, say the liberal billionaire disguises himself as a “humanitarian” while causing chaos and manipulating the political landscape.

Duterte homed in on Human Rights Watch, which he said was attacking him to justify a $100 million, 10-year grant globalist George Soros promised it six years ago.

“This Human Rights Watch of New York, that belongs to Soros. Soros was the financier. That’s him. It’s his grant,” he said.

“They have funding money. They will really attack to justify. They chose me… they’re pounding on me. That is fine, editorials every day. I can swallow that.“

Corporate media hit pieces may have influenced international opinion of Duterte, but in his own country he is revered. He boasts a massive 83% popular approval rating across the land.

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 Soros-influenced international community’s outrage, Duterte Harry is shooting from the hip, and cleaning up his country.

How does Duterte get away with taking on the rich and the powerful, installing law and order, and going against the globalist agenda of chaos and destruction?

The corporate media has no power over him. George Soros and corrupt 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 anti-globalist policies enrage the powers that be in the West, who have waged war against him through their propaganda channels in the media.

Mass Murder In America! Thousands Of Dead Bodies Found In Mass Grave At US Mental Asylum

Thousands of bodies have been recovered from a mass grave buried beneath the grounds of a former mental asylum in Mississippi.

The bodies are thought to be the result of a decades-long torture program in which the failed institution inflicted cruel and unusual punishments on citizens declared mentally unfit for society – including people who suffered from depression, those who read books, those considered “lazy”, those who “over studied religion”, and those who held political views.

Thefreethoughtproject.com reports: https://archive.fo/VivZs

These asylums were places in which abuse and death were frequent. While the rich could afford to go to fancy private establishments in the 19th and early-20th centuries, the poor were herded into these asylums with horrifying conditions.

As Dr. Ellen Holtzman points out, writing for the American Psychological Association, the disparity between government-run institutions and private ones was vast.

Holtzman notes, private asylums contrasted sharply with conditions in the late 19th-century public institutions. Patients at public hospitals were usually involuntarily committed, and they typically displayed violent or suicidal behavior before their hospitalization. The public hospitals were overcrowded and dirty, with bars on the windows. The staff was poorly paid and frequently treated patients harshly.

This harsh treatment, we are now finding out, was also deadly on a massive scale.

Built in 1855, the state of Mississippi funded their first mental institution — called the Insane Asylum.

During its peak, between 1855 and 1935, the Insane Asylum housed upwards of 6,000 people. In the first two decades it was opened, more than one in five patients would die inside its stone walls.

Four years ago, when UMMC began construction on a road across the 164-acre campus, they discovered the first of the coffins. However, that was only 66 coffins. Now, after studying the area with underground radar, Ralph Didlake, who oversees UMMC’s Center for Bioethics and Medical Humanities, said current estimates say the number of graves could be as high as 7,000.

Karen Clark of Clinton, MS, said her great-great-great grandfather Isham Earnest was held at and died at this facility.

As the Clarion-Ledger notes, the War of 1812 veteran moved to Neshoba County in 1842, was ruled “insane” in the 1850s and is believed to have died at the asylum between 1857 and 1859.

“Hundreds, if not thousands, of descendants are here today because of Isham Earnest,” she said. “Many are teachers, nurses, educators, and ministers.”

“I thought, ‘This person could be saved if modern medicine were there,’ ” Clark stated as she became overwhelmed with emotion while going through the records of patients at the hospital.

Clark noted she has sympathy for those who died in this place “because I’ve had mental issues in the distant past,” she said. “No one took me and dumped me.”

In 1935, after burying thousands and thousands of people in their backyard, the hospital was moved to where it currently resides, the State Hospital at Whitfield.

If ever there were a reason to be skeptical of government-sponsored programs ostensibly designed to help people, this is one. Although it was started with the best intentions by mental health advocate Dorothy Dix, the government-run hospital became more of a death camp than a treatment facility.

The Insane Asylum, like many other mental facilities across the United States at the time, have dark and deadly histories, many of which have rightfully inspired horror films.

The Waverly Hills Sanatorium in Kentucky killed so many people that estimates are anywhere from 150 a year to over 60,000.

Trump Is 100% Correct: The More Righteous Your Fight, The More Opposition You Will Face

Haters Gonna Hate.

Donald Trump ripped the media as he delivered the commencement address at the United States Coast Guard Academy in New London, Conn., Wednesday.

“I want to take this opportunity to give you some advice,” Trump said. “Over the course of life, you will find that things are not always fair. You have to put your head down and fight, fight, fight. Never, ever, ever give up. Things will work out just fine.”

“Look at the way I’ve been treated lately — especially by the media. No politician in history, and I say this with great charity, has been treated worse or more unfairly. You can’t let them get you down. You can’t let the critics and naysayers get in the way of your dreams. I guess that’s why I won, thank you. I guess that why we won.”

“Adversity makes your stronger. Don’t give up — don’t back down. Nothing worth doing ever, ever came easy. The more righteous your fight, the more opposition you will face.”

Trump then ran through a list of what he’s achieved in office so far.

“Jobs are pouring back into our country, a brand new Supreme Court Justice who is going to be fantastic of 45 years, a historic investment in our military, border crossings are down more than 70 percent in just a short period of time — a total record by the way, by the lot. We have saved the Second Amendment, expanded service for our veterans. We have begun plans and preparations for the border wall. We are working on major tax cuts for all. We are going to give you the largest one in American history if we get it the way we want it. We are also getting closer and closer day by day to great health care for our citizens.”

“We are setting the stage right now for many, many more things to come. The people understand what I’m doing and that’s the most important thing. I didn’t get elected to serve the Washington media or special interests,” Trump continued. “I got elected to serve the forgotten men and and women of our country. I will never stop fighting for you.”

Vladimir Putin Claims To Have Proof Trump Did Not Pass Russia Any Real Secrets

Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday that U.S. President Donald Trump had not passed any secrets onto Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov during a meeting in Washington last week and that he could prove it.

Speaking at a news conference alongside Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni, Putin quipped that Lavrov had not passed what he said were the non-existent secrets onto him either.

Putin said Russia was ready to hand a transcript of Trump's meeting with Lavrov over to U.S. lawmakers if that would help reassure them.

Two U.S. officials said on Monday that Trump had disclosed highly classified information to Lavrov about a planned Islamic State operation, plunging the White House into another controversy just months into Trump's short tenure in office.

How Ironic! Democrat Workers Sue DNC Over Slave Wages

Democrat Party workers are suing the DNC over claims that the organization pays slave wages to people working over 90 hours per week.

Dozens of DNC workers have filed a class action lawsuit claiming that the Democratic National Committee flaunt regulations and laws and treat their employees like slaves from a third world country.

Freebeacon.com reports: https://archive.fo/dktXt

Justin Swidler, the attorney representing the field workers, argued the Democratic Party failed to pay workers a minimum wage and denied them overtime compensation. Swidler “says the lawsuit seeks ‘fair pay for fair work,’ and holding the Democratic Party to the very ideals that it embraces,” according to CBS Philly.

The 2016 Democratic platform pushed for a $15-per-hour minimum wage, a nearly $8 increase from the current minimum, and promised to defend an Obama-era regulation forcing employers to pay a higher rate to employees for working more than 40 hours.

Some of the Democrats’ workers put in 80-90 hours per week, according to Swidler, and got only $3,000 per month in compensation. “They got paid a flat salary of $3,000 a month, which isn’t even minimum wage for some of the hours that they were working,” Swidler said.

The Democratic platform decried the current federal minimum of $7.25 per hour as ” starvation wage” and declared “no one who works full time should have to raise a family in poverty.”

The Democratic Party, Swidler noted, claimed it did not have enough money to pay workers overtime.

“One of the arguments that the Democrats are making is that they just don’t have the money to pay overtime to their workers,” Swidler said.

“These workers were out there in a campaign that was promising $15 an hour minimum wage, and expanding the overtime rights of workers,” Swidler added.

The lawsuit named several Democratic party organizations, including the Pennsylvania Democratic Party and the DNC.

Former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell, the chairman of the Democratic National Convention Host Committee in Philadelphia, said that he told workers before they were hired that they would receive substandard pay.

Rendell pointed out, however, that the plaintiffs did not work for his committee and that it paid interns and unpaid volunteers bonuses.

“In fact, we gave our interns, and our unpaid volunteers, bonuses at the end,” Rendell said.

Child Cyber Sex Den in the Philippines Busted, Young Boys & Girls Were Cyberly & Physically Assraped

MABALACAT, Philippines – The suspected pedophile could see people banging on his front door through his security cameras. Were they neighbors? Cops?

One had letters on her jacket. As David Timothy Deakin googled "What is NBI?" from the laptop on his bed, the Philippines National Bureau of Investigation smashed their way into his cybersex den.

Children's underwear, toddler shoes, cameras, bondage cuffs, fetish ropes, meth pipes and stacks of hard drives and photo albums cluttered the stuffy, two-bedroom townhouse. Penciled on the wall, someone had scrawled "My Mom and Dad love me" and a broken heart. In his computer were videos and images of young boys and girls engaged in sex acts.

"Why is everyone asking about children coming into my house?" said Deakin, 53, his wrists bound with a zip tie.

Deakin's arrest on April 20 reveals one of the darkest corners of the internet, where pedophiles in the U.S., Canada, Europe and Australia pay facilitators on the other side of the world to sexually abuse children, even babies, directing their moves through online livestreaming services.

The relatively new crime of webcam sex tourism is spreading rapidly, with new digital technologies sparking what the United Nations calls an "alarming growth of new forms of child sexual exploitation online." The FBI says it's epidemic, and that at any given moment, 750,000 child predators are online.

Almost every case stems from the Philippines, where good English speakers, increased internet connections and widespread international cash transfer systems combine with widespread poverty and easy access to vulnerable kids. There have been as many as three busts a week there this spring. The youngest victim ever, rescued a few weeks ago, was an infant, two months old. Most are under 12.

This spring The Associated Press watched a raid, rescue and launch of a major investigation that continues to play out on both sides of the world.

"This should serve as a warning," said NBI Anti-human trafficking chief Janet Francisco, who leads the case. "We will really catch them, with the help of our foreign counterparts. We will really put them in jail and they will die in jail."

Horst Mahler, once a founding member of Germany's leftist Red Army Faction guerrilla group in the 1960s before veering to the ultra-nationalist right, was detained in Sopron near Hungary's border with Austria, on Monday, police said.

The Budapest chief prosecutor said in a separate statement that based on the European warrant Mahler's arrest was "justified".

How to Talk to Liberals: Globalist 13 Year Old Schoolgirl Told to "F**K Off Back to Scotland"

A Tory MP told a girl to "fuck off back to Scotland" when she said she'd vote for independence if a second referendum was triggered.

James Heappey's outburst came as he addressed sixth-formers at the £12,000-a-year Millfield School in Somerset.

The Conservative, who is contesting the seat of Wells, asked the children for their views as they discussed the topic of Scottish independence. When one girl said she'd vote to leave the UK, Mr Heappey, 36, replied: "Why don't you FUCK off back to Scotland?"

The teenager left the meeting and complained to her father, who supports the Scottish National Party.

Mr Heappey has since sent her a written apology and insists he was joking. He told the Sunday Mirror: "I made a comment – intended only as a joke – but it was inappropriate and I am deeply sorry for any offence caused.

“I wrote to [the pupil] soon after the school brought her concerns to my attention and apologised unreservedly.”

The former army major was elected as an MP in 2015 after working as a researcher for Conservative Liam Fox.

Honoured to have been re-selected as @Conservatives candidate for the #Wells Constituency. Looking forward to the campaign that lies ahead. pic.twitter.com/0QpxgJ20wC

— James Heappey (@JSHeappey) April 22, 2017

Tessa Munt, the Lib Dem standing against Mr Heappey, said: “School is meant to be a safe place. We send our children to school in the expectation that they will be treated fairly and with respect by people in positions of power.

“I am utterly shocked that the then MP has used bullying, racist and abusive language to dismiss a teenage schoolgirl engaging in political debate.”

US teen died after drinking caffeine too quickly

Davis Allen Cripe collapsed at a high school in April after drinking a McDonald's latte, a large Mountain Dew soft drink and an energy drink in just under two hours, Gary Watts said.

The 16-year-old died from a "caffeine-induced cardiac event causing a probable arrhythmia".

He had no pre-existing heart condition.

The teenager weighed 90kg (200 lbs) but would not have been considered morbidly obese, Mr Watts said.

"This is not a caffeine overdose," Mr Watts told Reuters news agency.

"We're not saying that it was the total amount of caffeine in the system, it was just the way that it was ingested over that short period of time, and the chugging of the energy drink at the end was what the issue was with the cardiac arrhythmia."

27-year-old Polish girl gang raped and killed in Egypt

We reported the mysterious case of Magdalena Zuk; a 27-year-old Polish girl that died in Egypt a few days ago. Many reports believe that Zuk’s death was caused due to a fall from a high altitude — with many claiming she fell from the window sill of her hotel.

According to this Storm Front, the Polish Embassy in Egypt, Egyptian police and The Three Corners Equinox Beach Resort (where she stayed); have stated that Zuk suffered from depression and ended her own life as a result.

On the other hand, Zuk’s family as well as the Polish media believe that she allegedly got raped and was murdered.

A recent video, however, that was posted by the Polish media backs up Zuk’s family theory. The disturbing video allegedly shows what seems like Zuk in an Egyptian hospital in a non friendly environment. The men and woman — who are supposed to be hospital staff — can be seen being aggressive with the woman who is presumed to be Zuk. In the end of the video she is forcibly being carried away from the camera’s reach.

Deep State confirmed. Kikes gonna kike.

U.S. intelligence officials reportedly warned their Israeli counterparts to exert caution in sharing top secret information with Donald Trump’s administration for fear of it being passed to Russia and then to Moscow’s ally and Israel’s arch-enemy, Iran.

Discussions between U.S. and Israeli security services prior to Trump’s inauguration on January 20 gave rise to concerns that sensitive intelligence might exchange hands between him and the Russian government, Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth reported in January.

The paper published the report amid accusations of links between Trump’s campaign team and the Russian government. Now, just four months into Trump’s presidency, it has emerged that the commander in chief may have divulged highly classified intelligence to the Russian government.

On Monday, the Washington Post, citing officials with knowledge of the matter, reported that Trump boasted about top-secret information in his meeting last week with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Russian ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak.

Officials said he divulged sensitive information about an Islamic State militant group (ISIS) plot relating to aviation security that a key ally had secured, without the consent of that ally. It raised concerns among security officials that Russia could exploit that intelligence channel and identify the ally and method of intelligence used. Israel reportedly already had these concerns.

According to Yedioth, Israeli intelligence officials feared that its famous Mossad secret service would have its most sensitive methods and operations breached, potentially falling into the hands of the Iranian regime.

HSLDA To Betsy DeVos: Federal Government Is Bullying Parents Who Homeschool Their Children

Homeschool advocates say they informed U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos that homeschooling should not be included in any school voucher programs since government regulation could be tied to acceptance of taxpayer funds.

DeVos met with leaders from the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) Monday, who conveyed to the secretary their concerns about regulation of homeschooling tied to school vouchers and discrimination against homeschoolers by higher education programs that refuse to accept homeschool diplomas.

HSLDA president Mike Smith, vice presidents Jim Mason and Chuck Hurst, and director of federal relations William Estrada met with DeVos, along with Tricia Powell, a homeschooling parent.

Estrada posted on Facebook Tuesday about the meeting:

We discussed the successes of homeschooling, the work that HSLDA is doing to support homeschoolers and state and local homeschool support groups, and how homeschoolers just want to be left alone by the federal government (homeschoolers don’t want to be included in any federal k-12 voucher programs due to the threat of government regulations down the road.)

We discussed how homeschool graduates still face discrimination, usually in the form of federally funded higher education programs that refuse to accept their homeschool high school diploma.

Estrada noted the homeschooling leaders also “discussed how the Common Core and other federal overreach in public education has driven more families to choose homeschooling.”

“Secretary DeVos strongly agreed with us that the federal government does not have the authority to dictate curriculum decisions to states and local schools,” he said.

Estrada observed, nevertheless, the seeming paradox between his praise of DeVos as a “true friend and ally” to homeschoolers and his own view that there is no place for the federal government in education issues.

He wrote:

Some may find this post to be interesting as my personal position is well known that I believe the federal department of education is nowhere found in the Constitution, and should be closed, and all education decisions returned to the states and local school boards. That hasn’t changed. However, Congress created the federal Department of Education lawfully, and only Congress can close it down. And until that happens, I want someone as Secretary of Education who understands the limited federal role in education, and who respects family freedom in education. And Betsy DeVos does.

In February, Iowa Rep. Steve King created a firestorm when he introduced H.R. 610, the Choices in Education Act of 2017, a bill that Estrada asserted “would be a slippery slope toward more federal involvement and control in homeschooling.”

Donald Trump Freezes Federal Funding to Radical Leftist Groups, NGOs

Donald Trump has reportedly frozen $10 million of grants destined to threaten, intimidate and censor conservatives in the US.

More than 30 organisations were pegged by former President Barack Obama’s office to receive funding, although the White House has since put the grants on hold pending review.

Among those approved were local governments, city police departments, universities and non-profit organisations that targeted and threatened conservatives.

The Trump administration is moving focus to Islamist terrorism and radical anti-semitism.

American officials briefed on the proposed changes told Reuters the Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) initiative could be renamed “Countering Radical Islamic Extremism.”

The reclassification would remove Obama's plans to combat free speech, gun owners and conservative Christians.

Moral Decay Continues: Chris Christie Approves Law Allowing Pedophiles To Marry Children

The Governor of New Jersey Chris Christie has given his blessing to pedophiles, allowing them to marry and rape minors, as long as they claim its “part of their religion.”

Christie vetoed bill A3091 that was designed to protect children from religious perverts. He cited “concerns for religious traditions” for the veto, claiming that dirty old men should be allowed to get their wicked way with children if they so wish.

In a statement to the media, Christie said;

“I agree that protecting the well-being, dignity, and freedom of minors is vital, but the severe bar this bill creates is not necessary to address the concerns voiced by the bill’s proponents and does not comport with the sensibilities and, in some cases, the religious customs, of the people of this State.”

Patheos reports:

Christie’s reasoning is flawed. There are no “religious customs” that offer a moral justification for child marriage. In fact, reasonable people can assume that any custom that forces or permits child marriage is in fact immoral.

While Christie did not specify what “religious customs” he was referring to, there are both Muslims and Christians who believe child marriages, often arranged and even against the will of the minors involved, are appropriate.

Politico reports:

The top sponsor of the measure was Republican Assemblywoman Nancy Munoz, who said at a committee hearing last year that she introduced the bill after hearing “compelling” stories of minors forced into marriages for religious reasons.

Under current New Jersey law, children under 16 can be legally married with parental consent and approval from a sympathetic judge.

As for the legislation Christie vetoed, The New Jersey Law Journal reports: “The bill—sponsored by Assemblywoman Nancy Munoz, R-Union, and Assemblyman Reed Gusciora, D-Mercer—passed both chambers of the Legislature with only token opposition.”

Israel Says It's Time To Assassinate Assad And Destroy Iran

RELATED: >>>/realnews/364 (https://archive.fo/FPd9a)

Israeli minister Yoav Galant has called for the assassination of Syrian leader Bashar Assad, which he says will precurse the destruction of Iran.

The Israeli Housing Minister told Haaretz that he believes the “serpent’s head” in Tehran should be dealt with as soon as its tail – Syria – has been cut off.

“The reality whereby Syria executes people, intentionally uses chemical weapons to hurt them and, now, in the most recent move of extremism, is burning their bodies – this has not been seen in the world in 70 years,” Galant said.

“We are crossing a red line and, in my view, the time has come to assassinate Assad,” he continued.

RT.com reports: https://archive.fo/VNDQ1

“And when we finish with the tail of the serpent, we will reach the head of the serpent, which can be found in Tehran, and we will deal with it, too,” he said.

What appears to be the first recorded Israeli threat to assassinate Syrian President Bashar Assad came after the US Department of State alleged, without presenting any hard evidence, that the Syrian government is using “a crematorium” outside Damascus to burn the bodies of people killed by the government.

Earlier on Tuesday, Galant told Israeli Army Radio that Assad’s rule has been the worst since Nazi Germany. “What is happening in Syria is defined as genocide, under all its classifications,” he said on Army Radio, according to Jerusalem Post.

Galant, a retired IDF general, added that Israel wants to see Assad and his Alawite government ousted from power and replaced by a “moderate Sunni ruler.”

Some previous attempts to compare Assad’s government to the Nazi regime have been met with public outcry. White House spokesman Sean Spicer, who claimed that Hitler’s death squads hadn’t used chemical agents during the Holocaust “in the way that Assad used them” sparked outrage in the US and beyond.

Certain journalists have used the Assad-Hitler comparison when covering claims that Syrian forces have used chemical weapons, but those remarks were dismissed by the public.

Assad, a UK-educated doctor, has been in power since the 1999 passing of his father, Syria’s long-time president, Hafez Assad. Syria is one of the few Arab countries where the president is elected through a nationwide vote.

Trump Should Purge Globalist Staff, Ban Mainstream Media From Press Daily Press Briefings

RELATED: >>541239 (https://archive.fo/Xhsf3)

President Trump’s allies are pushing him to make drastic changes as the White House deals with persistent lies and a communications strategy (with the MSM) they believe has failed.

There is a broad sense among Trump’s media boosters and early supporters that his staff is failing him.

Now, some of the most influential figures in conservative media are openly auditioning for Spicer’s job, calling for the ouster of both press secretary Sean Spicer and communications director Mike Dubke. Some want to end press briefings altogether.

“I have always been against the White House doing daily press briefings and agree that an overhaul of how the communications team deals with the media is in order,” said Mark Meckler, cofounder of the Tea Party Patriots. “We are dealing with a media that is, by and large, hostile to conservatives, hostile to Republicans, hostile to ideas of limited government, fiscal responsibility and constitutionalism, and certainly hostile to this president. So the president and his staff should act accordingly.”

On his Monday night program, Fox News anchor Sean Hannity called for an end to the daily press briefing — something Trump has mused about on Twitter.

He said the White House should strike back by having reporters submit questions in writing, “giving the White House time to respond with clarity and specificity.” Following that, Spicer or deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders could then take a handful of questions from reporters on prearranged topics, Hannity said.

“If the White House follows this plan, I think the destroy-Trump propaganda media will have a much harder time misrepresenting the Trump administration positions and you, the American people, will be better served,” he said.

Trump’s allies blame the uproar on a failure of Trump’s chief of staff to assert authority inside a White House bitten by daily leaks to the press that paint a chaotic and unflattering picture of the president.

“It all comes back to the chief of staff,” said one GOP operative with close ties to the White House.

“Nobody respects him; nobody is afraid of him,” the operative said of Priebus. “You need someone in there who makes people feel their career in Washington would be ruined by running afoul of the president.”

Others blame the communications team for failing to control the media and get the president’s message out.

Alledged Key Intel Leaked Regarding US/Israel/Russia/Syria Conflicts of Interests

TOM asked: The news is exploding that Trump shared intel with Russians from an “ally” in the middle east and the ally is very upset. This is in regards to an Isis plot regarding airplanes and laptops.

A: The “ally” not being named is Israel, and they are mad as hell at Trump. Israel is furious because they got caught with their pants down. Lets get to the point. Isis was created by Israel and the US to weaken Iran and topple Assad. Billions in profits at stake. Israel has developed the technology to remote control airlines via laptops. A false flag was being prepared. Trump discussed it with Russian officials,exposing the “plot” McMaster pitched, and now all hell has broken loose. Trump did a wonderful thing in my opinion. We do not need anymore Isis false flags.

If Isis is eradicated, it will decrease CIA and DOD budgets, limit the amount of “support” Israel receives, and cause disruptions in the grand scheme to build a massive pipeline through Syria and ultimately cause the downfall of Iran and Russia. This is why “Isis” is being kept alive by the NWO. This is why such “bold” and “frightening” plots must be continually fed to the people. To justify larger budgets, and bigger hegemony.

Russia is actually our only hope, along with Trump, that this diabolical system can be broken, shattered, as JFK once said, into a thousand pieces and scattered to the wind.

The technology to remotely control and crash commercial airliners was developed by Unit 8200, the Israeli cyber command. Does any thinking person actually believe rag tag militants would have the know how and resources to develop this technology? Give me a break. While we are at it, you may want to see how close the Russian MetroJet 9268 was to Unit 8200 when it went down. Tensions between Israel and Russia continue to grow by the day. Putin knows every trick in the Israeli arsenal and he just happens to be a much better chess player than Netanyahu.

Here We Go! RINO Establishment Turncoats Begin To Wage Coup To Out President Elect Trump

RELATED: >>541239 (archive.fo/Xhsf3)

Rep. Justin Amash (RINO-Mich.) on Wednesday said reports that President Trump pressed ousted FBI Director James Comey to end an investigation would merit impeachment if true, becoming the first Republican lawmaker to broach the idea.

The New York Times on Tuesday reported that Trump tried to pressure Comey to stop investigating former national security adviser Michael Flynn, citing a memo written by Comey. (Where is this memo!?)

Asked by The Hill if the details in the memo would merit impeachment if they're true, Amash replied: "Yes."

"But everybody gets a fair trial in this country," Amash added as he left a House GOP conference meeting.

Asked by another reporter whether he trusted Comey's word or Trump's, Amash said: "I think it's pretty clear I have more confidence in Director Comey."

Amash is one of only two House Republicans to cosponsor a Democratic bill to establish an independent commission to investigate Russia's role in the election. Rep. Walter Jones (RINO-N.C.) has also endorsed the legislation.

C.I.A. Cyberattacks Russia:WannaCry:KARMA IS A BITCH

The malicious software, or malware, was

apparently

stolen from the National Security Agency’s arsenal of cyberweapons and put to use by

unknown hackers

WannaCry:The version of the program used to demand ransoms from the operators of frozen computer systems exploits vulnerabilities in older and unlicensed versions of Microsoft Windows, used widely in Russia, that did not have security patches.

MOSCOW — Russia was again at the center of a global hacking scandal when computer systems the world over were frozen this weekend by a variant of malicious software known as WannaCry. But this time, Russians were among the victims of the attack, not suspected of being the perpetrators.

In fact, of all the countries afflicted in the first wave of the spread of the malicious software, Russia was hit the hardest: The virus tried to infect more computers in Russia than anywhere else, according to an analysis by Kaspersky Lab, a Russian antivirus company.

While government computers were crashing, banks, cellphone operators and railroads in Russia were fending off attacks designed to freeze their systems in demand for ransoms to unlock the data.

Now on the business end of a cyberattack, Russian officials were quick to voice outrage.

How to Survive a Riot

How to Survive a Riot

1. Don’t go near it: If you don’t have to be there, don’t. There’s no honor in putting yourself in harm’s way, taking a brick to the head, and getting put in a coma. If you can stay away, do it. Leave the ego at home. Don’t look for trouble, because you’ll find more than you can handle. This is about you going home to your loved ones, not them coming to see you in a hospital bed.

2. Situational awareness: Always know what’s going on around you. Always. At the grocery store, at red lights, in your driveway, when you’re out in public, in a parking lot, at the ATM, anywhere. If you see something that looks odd, stay away. If you see some people who look like they’re planning something or up to no good, you’re probably right. Walk proud, keep your head on a swivel, and don’t look like a victim (more on that below). Lock your car doors. Pull your head out of your app, and know who is around you. More on that here.

3. Every day carry (EDC): Depending on what state you live in, you’ll have certain options as far as what you carry with you every day when you leave the house. For me, living in a free state, I carry a .40 cal pistol with an extra magazine, a small pocket knife, a neck knife, and if I’m in the mood to be extremely safe I bring pepper spray. All concealed, all the time. You DO NOT want to get caught in a situation that requires you to defend yourself without the tools necessary to do it.

4. If you’re in it, don’t panic: If you find yourself out and about when violence breaks out, DO. NOT. PANIC. Panic doesn’t help. Rational thinking does. Don’t freak out and don’t freeze in place and wait for a beatdown. You need to act and act quickly. Which, brings me to my next point.

5. Master OODA Loop: If you’re a military guy or anyone who has received any kind of tactical training, you may have heard of OODA Loop. It stands for Observe, Orient, Decide, Act and has to do with how you handle yourself in a high-stress or crisis situation. Basically, it means that you assess the situation, weigh your options, and make a decision. Instead of me hashing it out here, go check out master military strategist John Boyd’s writing on it. You’ll be very glad you did.

6. Know that you ARE NOT safe: These rioters who trash their own cities and attack women? They ARE NOT like you. The Antifa thugs, Communists, and far-left progressives don’t like people like you. They hate freedom. They don’t care if children get hurt, or if you’re with your family; so don’t try to reason with them, because it won’t work. They are not rational, so don’t expect any favors. Valueless people act in valueless ways, and you could be shown no mercy. Know your enemy.

7. Run: This is your best option. If you can run, do it. Run away and do not stop until you’re sure you’re safe. There’s no honor in getting hurt in a riot.

8. Don’t wait for the police: If things are out of control, don’t expect the police or military to save you. You need to protect yourself and your family. In riots like we’ve seen recently, the police don’t know who the good guys are and who the bad ones are at first glance. And, oftentimes, they can’t get to you anyways. You need to take action because the police may be overwhelmed and have no way to immediately help you.

9. If you need to, join in: If you can’t get out or get away, and see no options, join in. Take off your Trump hat, and blend into the crowd only for as long as you have to get out and get where you need to be. Again, this is about your safety. It’s about survival.

10. Don’t look like a target: Cowards in masks attack targets. It’s what cowards do. So, don’t look like one. If you’re hunched over with your face in your phone and not paying attention, that projects weakness and paints you as a target to rioters. Walk upright, look people in the eye, and don’t let people get close to you. If they do, issue strong verbal commands to show them you mean business and tell them to back off. Harsh language means something to these people. You’re speaking their language. So walk proud, watch for cues that you’re about to be attacked (e.g. posturing, looking around, change in stance, etc.), keep moving, maintain as much distance as you can from a would-be attacker, use strong verbal commands, and keep your head up. This has to do with something called “managing unknown contacts” (MUC). A man named “Tom “Kenobi” turned me onto this and you can read about it in depth here.

Fascist Government Thugs Threatening To Invade Organic Farms To Spray Roundup

RELATED: >>>/realnews/653 (https://archive.fo/nXGgF)

A huge, established organic farm in Oregon is scheduled for invasion by trespassing government employees who will spray the land with Roundup, poisoning the soil with the carcinogenic herbicide.

Azure Farms, a 2000-acre farm in Oregon that has been certified organic for 18 years, is under threat from the local Sherman County government.

Why? Because Sherman County officials are re-interpreting a law concerning the “control of noxious weeds,” claiming that if the organic farm doesn’t “completely eradicate” certain weeds, they will invade and forcefully spray Monsanto’s notorious weedkiller themselves.

Capital Press reports:

Local wheat farmers say weeds spreading from Azure Farms, on the outskirts of Moro in north central Oregon, cost them money in the form of additional herbicide control. Most critically, growers of certified wheat seed say their crops will be worthless if contaminated by Rush Skeleton Weed, Canada Thistle, Morning Glory and White Top spreading from the farm.

Spraying the weeds with Milestone or other herbicides, however, would cause the farm to lose organic certification for three years. Azure Standard, which operates Azure Farms, is a major distributor of organic products.

Sherman County gave the farm until May 22 to respond with a weed management plan. If not, the county will ask the Oregon Department of Agriculture to quarantine the farm.

The issue has blown up on social media.

The manager of Azure Farms, Nathan Stelzer, urged supporters to “Overwhelm the Sherman County representatives with your voice.” A video posted on the farm website called for people to express their outrage reportedly has resulted in hundreds of phone calls and thousands of emails to county officials.

The issue may come to a head Wednesday when the county’s Board of Commissioners takes up the issue. The county is expecting such a crowd that it moved the session from the courthouse to the Sherman County School gym, 65912 High School Loop, Moro, at 4 p.m.

“The school gym is the only site in Sherman County big enough to hold the expected crowd and we received permission to use the gym only if we delayed our meeting until after the students are dismissed,” Commissioner Tom McCoy said in an email.

Meanwhile, the Oregon Wheat Commission and several growers are meeting with the state agriculture Director Alexis Taylor, hoping to enlist the department’s support.

Oregon Tilth, which certifies organic operations, is calling for calm and urging the county to pause its enforcement timeline. Executive Director Chris Schreiner said Oregon Tilth hopes mediation can result in a weed management plan that allows Azure Farms to retain its certification while addressing concerns of neighboring farmers.

The Gangster Culture That Permeates Washington DC Politics

Politics has become a very dirty game in America, and if you don’t know how to play the game, the game is going to play you.

Donald Trump and Seth Rich are both victims of this cold, hard reality, and hopefully what has happened to them will help the American people understand what is really going on in Washington. Contrary to what many may believe, politics is not an easy road to fame, wealth and glory. For every Obama or Clinton that makes it big, there are thousands of others that have had their careers shattered, their reputations ruined and their futures destroyed by the game. And those such as Seth Rich that cross the wrong people at the wrong time end up dead.

This is why it is so rare for good people to get into politics these days. From a purely selfish standpoint, it just isn’t worth it.

Trump has even admitted that he thought that being president would be easier. I don’t think that he realized that the world of Washington politics is such a minefield. One wrong move and a president can be toast.

And it would be bad enough if it was just the Democrats that were determined to take him down. Unfortunately, there are Republicans such as Senator John McCain that are quite eager to jump on any new Trump scandal. Just look at how quick he was to talk to the press about this latest one. The following comes from the Hill…

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said Tuesday that allegations President Trump shared highly classified information with top Russian officials are “deeply disturbing,” becoming the latest GOP lawmaker to raise concerns over the meeting.

“The reports that the President shared sensitive intelligence with Russian officials are deeply disturbing,” McCain said in a statement.

There are a lot of other top Republicans other than McCain that hate Trump as well, and so Trump better hope that he is never facing impeachment because a lot of them would absolutely jump at the opportunity to take him down for good.

And speaking of impeachment, a number of Democrats are starting to mention that word even though Trump has done nothing wrong.

“It is a looming constitutional crisis because it involves a potential confrontation as did Watergate between the president and other branches of government,” Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) said last week, after Trump fired Comey. “It may well produce impeachment proceedings.”

We desperately need to get Trump some friends in Congress, but so far there has been very little enthusiasm for a pro-Trump movement in 2018.

Instead, conservatives just seem to be content to bitterly fight with one another.

Let us hope that changes soon, otherwise 2018 is going to be very ugly.

The fear and intimidation tactics that are used in Democratic circles are well known, and Seth Rich found out the hard way that you do not cross party leaders.

According to Fox News, the FBI has confirmed that Rich had been in contact with WikiLeaks just before his death…

An FBI forensic report of Rich’s computer — generated within 96 hours after Rich’s murder — showed he made contact with WikiLeaks through Gavin MacFadyen, a now-deceased American investigative reporter, documentary filmmaker, and director of WikiLeaks who was living in London at the time, the federal source told Fox News.

“I have seen and read the emails between Seth Rich and WikiLeaks,” the federal investigator told Fox News, confirming the MacFadyen connection. He said the emails are in possession of the FBI, while the stalled case is in the hands of the Washington Police Department.

Of course everyone knows what really happened. Rich was the one that leaked a treasure trove of Democratic National Committee documents to WikiLeaks, and as a result he was killed for doing it.

Man Sets Himself On Fire Live On Facebook

A Memphis man set himself on fire early Saturday morning on Facebook Live and then ran into Murphy’s Bar. All because his girl left him.

It happened shortly after midnight in the 1500 block of Madison Avenue.

The Video shows the desperate man, Jared McLemore, dousing himself in gasoline from a metal can.

A man runs over to help, the can falls and the doused man erupts in flames.

Police say the man suffered severe burns and died late Saturday morning.

McLemore’s ex-girlfriend was reportedly in the bar and witnesses say he shouted that she “made” him do it.

He had domestic violence charges and a restraining order.

A second man, who tried to help, also suffered burns.

Vaccines.news Publishes Emails From Boston Herald’s Hateful Rachelle Cohen

Rachelle Cohen believes that anyone who opposes mercury in vaccines should be hanged to death. She’s a veteran writer / editor for the Boston Herald, and she has just demonstrated how the vaccine industry — and its mainstream media cohorts — is a violent, lunatic terrorism organization that has now decided to start calling for the mass murder of anyone who disagrees with them

Now, Vaccines.news has published Rachelle Cohen’s emails from the Boston Herald, which reveal how she is surprisingly annoyed by the fact that the people she wants murdered have the gall to send her nasty emails. Or, as Age of Autism explains, Rachelle Cohen Wants You Dead, But You Are Not To Respond In Kind.

https://archive.fo/9wlzE

https://web.archive.org/web/20170516214140/http://vaccines.news/2017-05-16-rachelle-cohen-emails-published-boston-herald-hate-filled-vaccine-murder.html

Murdering parents who oppose mandatory vaccines is necessary, Rachelle Cohen argues in the Boston Herald, to save the children from the flu (or whatever) by injecting them with brain-damaging neurotoxins such as mercury and aluminum, both of which are still found in vaccines given to children in America. She is also convinced that vaccines harm no one, even as she displays her own symptoms of “Vaccine Rage,” characterized by violent irrationality and lunatic behavior.

Like many mainstream media “reporters” operating today, Rachelle operates in the “post-fact era” of make-believe journalism, where dishonest writers at the Boston Herald, NYT or Washington Post literally fabricate false “facts” and publish them as if they were true. Rachelle seems oblivious, for example, to the fact that according to the U.S. government’s own statistics, more children are harmed each day in America by vaccines than by gunshots. Yet to people like Rachelle, vaccines and guns probably go hand in hand, because she wants to make sure all children are maimed by vaccines while all adults who seek to protect children are murdered by the government (probably at gunpoint).

Rachelle, whose middle initial is “G” (Rachelle G. Cohen) appears to be the same Rachelle Cohen who is on the Board of Directors of the Massachusetts Association For Mental Health, Inc. Perhaps she can get a discount on treatment for her own obvious mental illness…

Rachelle is apparently annoyed that all the people she wants killed haven’t already killed themselves. How dare they write her nasty emails in response to her public call for mass executions and murder! The gall of these people!

Aetna Will Exit Obamacare Markets in Virginia in 2018 (Repost!)

original thread 404'd!

RELATED: >>>/realnews/588

Giant insurer Aetna on Wednesday continued an ongoing retreat from the Obamacare business, announcing it will not sell such health plans in Virginia next year because of expected financial losses.

Aetna left open the question of whether it will sell individual health plans anywhere next year.

The insurer, which last month announced it would exit Iowa's Obamacare market in 2018, sells individual plans in just two other states this year: Delaware and Nebraska.

"Despite significantly reducing our exchange footprint, our individual commercial products could potentially lose more than $200 million in 2017," said Aetna spokesman T.J. Crawford in an email.

"Based on that financial risk, and growing uncertainty in the marketplace, we will not offer on- or off-exchange individual plans in Virginia for 2018."

"We will communicate decisions on our remaining states as appropriate," Crawford said.

The email contains a graphic image depicting Aetna's approximate pre-tax losses on Obamacare plans since they began being sold in 2014. They go from about $100 million that year, up to $130 million in 2015, and about $450 million last year.

The pull-out of Virginia, Iowa, and potentially the other two states will not affect customers covered by Aetna through either their employer, or through Medicaid and Medicare Advantage plans.

The move only relates to individual plans sold on and off of the federal Obamacare exchange HealthCare.gov.

Aetna sells health plans in 50 of Virginia's 95 counties, according to data from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. In 24 counties where it operates, there is just one other insurer selling Obamacare plans: Anthem, under the brand name HealthKeepers.

Anthem has already filed paperwork related to potentially selling plans in 2018 in Virginia.

However, Anthem and other insurers have warned that if they are not guaranteed federal subsidies for reducing out-of-pocket health costs for low-income customers, they may have to either raise rates for 2018 plans, or not sell them altogether.

A spokesman for Virginia's insurance commissioner declined to comment when asked about Aetna's decision.

Aetna last year sold individual Obamacare plans in 15 states. But it retreated to just four states in 2017 because of losses from the plans.

Aetna CEO Mark Bertolini on Tuesday had told CNBC's "Closing Bell," that given the expected losses for 2017, "we're evaluating the markets as we speak."

"We will be notifying some other states shortly. We only have four states remaining, so our presence will be smaller than it is this year," Bertolini said that day.

Good! Hungary Unveils New Electrified Border Wall, Watch Towers And Guards With Machine Guns

Hungary is taking action to protect their nation against the evil forces behind deliberate destabilization!

The country of Hungary, 95% of whose citizens opposed European Union migrant quotas in a recent referendum, has reportedly electrified key portions of their border fence.

According to Index.hu, when approaching the border outside of authorized border crossings, those attempting to enter the country will be met with warning signs in Hungarian, Serbian and Arabic advising them that the fence has been electrified.

Kit Daniels reports: https://archive.fo/oMQKN

It may not be a full fence shield, but there are fixed wires running parallel to the ground,” reported journalist András Földes. “The 12 wires mounted on insulated points are visible on both fences of the double fence, with insulated portions on the inside of the fences since it’s assumed they [the migrants] will only come from the outside if they come in.”

“…We also learned that a worker was shaken at the time of the installation and that he was hospitalized,” he added.

Though detractors of President Donald Trump’s border wall concept have been critical of the idea that a wall would actually stop illegal immigration through America’s porous southern border, the Hungarian wall has reportedly reduced illegal crossings into the country by a whopping 97%, with a significant change seen within the first 24 hours after it was installed.

The images below paint a very intimidating picture of what migrants attempting to cross the border will see.

Glance at the warning signs in multiple languages:

NY Daily News: Trump is 'leaker of the free world'

https://archive.fo/U0FTr

The New York Daily News previewed its Wednesday cover online, which calls President Trump “leaker of the free world.”

“Trump spilled ISIS secrets to Russia,” it says below a picture of Trump meeting Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak at the White House.

The cover also describes Trump as “yukking it up” with the pair alongside a photo of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

>Trump reveals national secrets regarding ISIS that revealed the identity of their source.

>His staff deny it ever happened

>Seeing that the narrative isn't flying, Trump blows his staff out of the water and tweets (with bravado) that he did just reveal secrets and threaten the life of the source

I predicted he'll either quit or be impeached… any time now…

Cool map shows CIA cyberattack(Wannacry) on Russia,China

Sources have suggested that Wannacry was deliberately released into the wild by USA spooks to create plausible deniability in this 2nd battle of Cyberwar 1.

Ist battle of Cyberwar 1 was the influencing of the USA election by Russia

If you are following the news, by now you might be aware that a security researcher has activated a "Kill Switch" which apparently stopped the WannaCry ransomware from spreading further.

But it's not true, neither the threat is over yet.

However, the kill switch has just slowed down the infection rate.

Updated: Multiple security researchers have claimed that there are more samples of WannaCry out there, with different 'kill-switch' domains and without any kill-switch function, continuing to infect unpatched computers worldwide

The Yanks spooks didn't count on the kill switch being over rode

The SMB exploit, currently being used by WannaCry, has been identified as EternalBlue, a collection of hacking tools

allegedly stolen

from the NSA and then subsequently dumped by a hacking group calling itself "The Shadow Brokers" over a month ago.

Matthieu Suiche, a security researcher, has confirmed that he has found a new WannaCry variant with a different domain for kill-switch function, which he registered to redirect it to a sinkhole in an effort to slows down the infections.

The newly discovered WannaCry variant works exactly like the previous variant that wreaked havoc across the world Friday night.

But, if you are thinking that activating the kill switch has completely stopped the infection, then you are mistaken.

Since the kill-switch feature was in the SMB worm, not in the ransomware module itself., "WannaCrypt ransomware was spread normally long before this and will be long after, what we stopped was the SMB worm variant," MalwareTech told The Hacker News.

German Government Confiscating Homes From Civilians To Use For Illegal Islamic 'Refugee' Invaders

RELATED: >>>/realnews/364 (https://archive.fo/zU4go)

In an unprecedented move, Hamburg authorities confiscated six residential units in the Hamm district near the city center. A trustee appointed by the city is now renovating the properties and will rent them — against the will of the owner — to tenants chosen by the city. District spokeswoman Sorina Weiland said that all renovation costs will be billed to the owner of the properties.

Similar expropriation measures have been proposed in Berlin, the German capital, but abandoned because they were deemed unconstitutional.

Some Germans are asking what is next: Will authorities now limit the maximum amount of living space per person, and force those with large apartments to share them with strangers?

Authorities in Hamburg, the second-largest city in Germany, have begun confiscating private dwellings to ease a housing shortage — one that has been acutely exacerbated by Chancellor Angela Merkel’s decision to allow more than two million migrants into the country in recent years.

City officials have been seizing commercial properties and converting them into migrant shelters since late 2015, when Merkel opened German borders to hundreds of thousands of migrants from Africa, Asia and the Middle East. Now, however, the city is expropriating residential property units owned by private citizens.

In an unprecedented move, Hamburg authorities recently confiscated six residential units in the Hamm district near the city center.The units, which are owned by a private landlord, are in need of repair and have been vacant since 2012. A trustee appointed by the city is now renovating the properties and will rent them — against the will of the owner — to tenants chosen by the city. District spokeswoman Sorina Weiland said that all renovation costs will be billed to the owner of the properties.

The expropriation is authorized by the Hamburg Housing Protection Act (Hamburger Wohnraumschutzgesetz), a 1982 law that was updatedby the city’s Socialist government in May 2013 to enable the city to seize any residential property unit that has been vacant for more than four months.

The forced lease, the first of its kind in Germany, is said to be aimed at pressuring the owners of other vacant residences in the city to make them available for rent. Of the 700,000 rental units in Hamburg, somewhere between 1,000 and 5,000 (less than one percent) are believed to be vacant, according an estimate by the Hamburg Senate.

Socialists and Greens in Hamburg recently established a “hotline” where local residents can report vacant properties. Activists have also created a website — Leerstandsmelder (Vacancy Detector) — to identify unoccupied real estate in Hamburg and other German cities.

It remains unclear why the landlord in Hamm left his apartments vacant for more than five years. Some have posited that, given the location of the properties, the renovation costs may have been too high and probably would not have been offset by the rental income.

… …

On October 1, 2015, the Hamburg Parliament (Hamburgische Bürgerschaft) approved a new law that allows the city to seize vacant commercial real estate (office buildings and land) and use it to house migrants.

City officials said the measure was necessary because, at the time, more than 400 new migrants were arriving in Hamburg each day and all the existing refugee shelters were full. They said that because the owners of vacant real estate refused to make their property available to the city on a voluntary basis, the city should be given the right to take it by force.

The measure was applauded by those on the left of the political spectrum. “We are doing everything we can to ensure that the refugees are not homeless during the coming winter,” said Senator Till Steffen of the Green Party. “For this reason, we need to use vacant commercial properties.”

Others have argued that efforts by the state to seize private property are autocratic and reek of Communism. “The proposed confiscation of private land and buildings is a massive attack on the property rights of the citizens of Hamburg,” said André Trepoll of the center-right Christian Democratic Union (CDU). “It amounts to an expropriation by the state.” He said the proposed measure is a “law of intimidation” that amounts to a “political dam-break with far-reaching implications.” He added: “The ends do not justify any and all means.”

Katja Suding, the leader of the Free Democrats (FDP) in Hamburg, said that the proposed law is an “unacceptable crossing of red lines… Such coercive measures will only fuel resentment against refugees.”

NHS Cyber Attack Spreads Worldwide Because Everything Is Going Digital, NSA Hacking Tool Used

Hospitals across the country have reported being hit by the attack.

Ransomware, holding files hostage in return for Bitcoin payment, is infecting computers in at least seven countries.

Patients are being turned away from A&E.

Operations are being cancelled.

Hospitals in the North, East, London and West Midlands have been affected.

The NHS has been crippled in large areas of the country as part of a world-wide cyber attack.

The attack is part of a global spate of ransomware cyber infiltrations to hit companies and government organizations in at least seven countries.

Hospitals are understood to have lost the use of phonelines and computers, with some diverting all but emergency patients elsewhere.

All because every institution is digitizing everything, which is fucking stupid.

According to security experts, it exploited a vulnerability that was discovered and developed by the National Security Agency.

Refugee in Germany Blinds & Mutilates Friend, Eats his Ear over $50

A German court has instituted legal proceedings against an asylum seeker who cruelly crippled another refugee in a barbaric assault. The attack was allegedly provoked by a quarrel over a debt of €50 ($55).

A 20-year-old refugee who has lived in Germany since 2013 now faces charges of attempted murder and serious bodily harm over what is being described as a “barbaric” and “animalistic” attack that defies understanding.

The suspect allegedly attacked another refugee, 18, who was presumed to be his friend, in October 2016, German media report, citing the regional Prosecutor’s Office. He came to the victim’s apartment and stabbed him in the neck with two knives. As the victim fell unconscious, the assailant bit off both his ears and then cut off his eyelids with a knife.

However, he did not stop at that and then fiercely stabbed his victim in the eyes with a pen, almost poking the man’s eyes out.

An emergency paramedic, who examined the victim right after the attack, told the court on Monday that the victim’s eyelids were “torn to pieces.”

Eventually, a neighbor alarmed by the noises coming from the victim’s flat called the police and the officers arrested the perpetrator at the scene as he was “lying in a pool of blood,” the Hessian Broadcasting Corporation reported.

The victim survived the attack but was left blind and severely crippled. The incident took place in the town of Schluechtern, located in central Germany, not far from the city of Frankfurt.

Now, the German authorities are struggling to gain an insight into the motives of the attacker. The judge, Susanne Wetzel, denounced it as a “downright brutal and bizarre act.”

The public prosecutor’s office is investigating the theory that the attack was provoked by a quarrel over money that the victim owed to the assailant. However, many experts challenge this assumption.

“I have never heard about such a case. That is something really archaic,” Rudolf Egg, an expert in criminal psychology from the German city of Wiesbaden, told the German media. “The fact that the victim’s ears were bit off as if by a wild beast makes it look almost animalistic,” he added.

The expert assumed that the assailant could have been motivated by jealousy because he “wanted not only to harm his victim but also to disfigure him,” adding: “He wanted [his victim] to look ugly and shameful.”

In the meantime, the director of the German Federal Central Bureau for Criminology, Martin Rettenberger, said that the attack defies understanding. “There is no rational explanation for such a violent act,” he said, as cited by Die Welt daily.

He believes the assailant could be suffering from a severe mental disorder as the injured person could have fallen victim of “the violent fantasies of the perpetrator.”

The attacker was not under influence of alcohol or drugs, the German media report, citing the public prosecutor’s office. An (((expert))) in psychology, who was present at the court hearing, said that the suspect came through a “difficult period” while traveling to Europe as a refugee. He also revealed that the suspect complained about some “dark thoughts” and admitted that he drank alcohol and watched horror films “to relax.”

The victim also could not shed light on the chilling incident as he literally disappeared after he underwent a course of treatment in a clinic for sight-disabled people located not far from the city of Wuerzburg.

“I assume that he is in fear,” the victim’s lawyer, Gabriele Berg-Ritter told the court, adding that his whereabouts remain unknown.

According to the Bild daily, the attacker was identified as an Eritrean called Dawit W. and his victim was Mustafa H. from Somalia. Both men came to Germany in 2013. Dawit W. traveled to Germany through Italy and filed an asylum request a year after he arrived in the German town of Giessen.

The attacker had lived in Schluechtern since 2015 and was not previously known to police. Mustafa H. was officially granted asylum in Germany in 2013. He also moved to Schluechtern in mid-2015. The two men got acquainted as they both lived in a refugee center. According to the investigators, they were friends for about two and a half years. Both lived in rented apartments not far from each other.

The Hanau town court that took on this case is expected to make its judgment either in late May or in early June, according to German media. The attacker faces a possible life sentence.

Islamo-weden: Iraqi Immigrant Arrested for Raping Nursery School Child

Swedish Police has arrested a 19-year-old immigrant from Iraq on suspicion of raping one of the children at a nursery school in the municipality of Lindesberg, where the man was temporarily employed. The alleged sexual assault took place on April 18.

According to Fria Tider, police detained the man last Friday. That same day, parents were invited to an emergency meeting that was held at the school last Monday night. Parents were informed of the case during a press conference.

Apparently, the migrant had been working at the school for more than three months, after previously being employed at three other Swedish preschools. It is yet unknown if there have been other victims.

In court, where hearings were held behind closed doors, the suspected paedophile denied the allegations. The minimum penalty for child rape in Sweden is two years in jail.

Background

The suspect was born in the town of Zakho, in the Kurdish region of northern Iraq. In September 2006, he arrived in Sweden as a child with his mother, father and five siblings. The man has since been granted Swedish citizenship.

Good! Arizona Officially Removes Taxation on Gold-Silver Purchases and Sales

On May 10 the Arizona state legislature completed its approval of Bill 2014 which removes the state taxation on the sale and purchase of physical gold and silver.

This move is also the first step by the state to once again recognize gold and silver as Constitutional money, and to begin the process towards one day allowing the precious metals to be used in commerce within its borders.

Arizona also joins Utah, Idaho, Texas, Oklahoma, and Virginia in either proposing or passing legislation to work towards the legalization of gold and silver as money.

Sound money advocates scored a major victory today when the Arizona state senate voted 16-13 to remove all income taxation of precious metals at the state level. The measure heads to Governor Doug Ducey, who is expected to sign it into law.

Under House Bill 2014, introduced by Representative Mark Finchem (R-Tucson), Arizona taxpayers will simply back out all precious metals “gains” and “losses” reported on their federal tax returns from the calculation of their Arizona adjusted gross income (AGI).

Dr. Ron Paul noted, “HB 2014 is a very important and timely piece of legislation. The Federal Reserve’s failure to reignite the economy with record-low interest rates since the last crash is a sign that we may soon see the dollar’s collapse. It is therefore imperative that the law protect people’s right to use alternatives to what may soon be virtually worthless Federal Reserve Notes.” - Goldseek

Former FBI director James Comey seized and destroyed millions of documents that proved the Obama administration had illegally wiretapped Donald Trump before becoming President.

Larry Klayman, attorney for former NSA and CIA whistleblower Dennis Montgomery, had handed over 47 hard drives and data containing 600 million documents on the government’s extensive surveillance program. According to Klayman, Comey took the information, which included evidence of an Obama admin surveillance scheme on his political opponents, and buried it.

Bigleaguepolitics.com reports: https://archive.fo/YbPV0

Additionally, Comey’s former firm Lockheed Martin granted entry to Montgomery to one of its facilities to help him work on the alleged mass surveillance program, which was allegedly overseen by Obama administration officials John Brennan and James Clapper and specifically targeted Trump.

As Big League Politics recently reported: real estate mogul Timothy Blixseth claims that he saw records from Montgomery proving that Obama CIA director John Brennan oversaw repeated spying on the phone calls of President Donald Trump and millions of other private American citizens. An audiotape of an interview Blixseth gave –released by Federal Judge G. Murray Snow as part of a civil case — is presented below.

In the audiotaped interview — conducted before Trump ever ran for president — Blixseth spoke to former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and detective Mike Zullo. The audio was released in connection with a civil contempt case that the Department of Justice filed against Arpaio. The audio of this conversation appears to only be preserved in one location on the Internet, on a whistleblower Soundcloud page.

“This guy showed me 900 million phone calls. And I see myself in there. I see people I know. I see Donald Trump in there a zillion times, and Bloomberg is in there,” Blixseth said on the tape, referring to information that Montgomery allegedly showed him.

“He’s a very genius computer guy,” Blixseth said of Montgomery. “What they did is, they were actually working for the CIA. And they mask it as — I’m sure you’ll remember this — the contracts with the CIA, of which I had many copies, said that they were decoding Al-Jazeera television, said that there was broadcast embedded, remember that? Owned by Gore? Al Gore’s got part of it now. But it was all bullshit. That was bullshit. That was a front by the CIA. And this guy [Montgomery] worked for Brennan and Clapper. Those were the two guys running it,” Timothy Blixseth told Arpaio and Zullo on the tape.

“He started out in 2004 with another partner in Reno, Nevada, called eTreppid. They collected about $40 million from the CIA. Top security clearance. All kinds of letters…In 2006 they started a new company that [my ex-wife] owns, and they started doing the same business for the government. What it really turns out they were doing is they were hacking into all of America.”

Big League Politics called the listed number for eTreppid Technologies, but we were told that Montgomery no longer works there. “That company closed down years ago, sir,” a representative said of eTreppid Technologies. When asked what the company is called now, the representative said, “I’m sorry, I can’t discuss any more with you.”

Blixseth claimed in his conversation with Zullo and Arpaio that Brennan and Clapper were running the operation.

“Everything they said they didn’t do, that Brennan said recently, mainly Clapper. It’s all bullshit. And I’ve got it right here,” Blixseth said.

We are losing our money on Saudia Arabia: Trump

It has been long since Saudi Arabia has been successfully running the western franchise of hegemony in the West Asia.

Saudi Arabia has groomed Takfirism and funded Taliban and Al Qaeda in the region. It has forgotten that the United States or the British colonialists have backed a state or the leadership until they achieve their goals.

Lately the American President Donald Trump has complaint Saudi Arabia for not coming up to the expectations of United States. He has said that the monarchy that it has supported for long is not treating the United States fairly.

The United States has opposed democracies globally while supported monarchies, dictatorship and apartheid regimes such as Israel. One of such examples is Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and other Arab states. Trump is complaining that the US is losing tremendous amount of money that it has spent on the Kingdom’s defense expenditure.

After losing Iran in the year 1979, the US had its eyes over Saudi Arabia to be its puppet in the region. To create a chaos in the region, it had brought Saudi Arabia to confront Iran and used the sectarian war as an excuse to keep the division alive. To the majority, it was promoted that Iran and Saudia has a Shia Sunni grudge, but the fact was contrary to it. Saudi Arabia has supported the Wahabi mindset that considers any ideology other that Wahhabism as heretic whether it be Shia or Sunni. Other than selling its identity and dignity, the Saudi Arabia has injected a tremendous amount of oil by becoming the leading oil supplier to the United States.

Yale Launches Elitist 'Crisis Response Project' Funded By Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos

the Yale School of Management reports that $10 million has been raised to expand the Yale Program on Financial Stability and launch the “Crisis-Response Project.”

The project is primarily funded by Jeff Bezos, Bloomberg Philanthropies, Bill Gates, and the Peter G. Peterson Foundation.

The goal of the project is to "codify best practices and provide training that can help governments fight financial crises."

Who are the advisors that will be advising on the project?

The operatives that bailed out Goldman Sachs and the other crony parts of Wall Street following the 2008 financial crisis.

Get a load of this.

The Advisory Board is chaired by Timothy Geithner, Members include Ben Bernanke and Hank Paulson.

Most disconcerting is the advisory team also includes Ken Rogoff who believes that cash should be banned to fight financial crises.

This project tis going to be a serious elitist operations center for the next crisis.

According to Yale:

With the Crisis-Response Project, the YPFS is creating an online platform to provide real-time decision support in financial crises.

Andrew Metrick, Program Director of the Yale Program on Financial Stability and the Michael H. Jordan Professor of Finance and Management at Yale SOM, said, “The first time you contemplate a potential solution to a crisis shouldn’t be when you’re in the middle of one. Collectively, we must be better prepared for the next crisis. The Crisis-Response Project will do that.”

Geithner said, “Our goal is to improve the quality of decision making by governments and central banks in financial crises. With a master class designed and led by practitioners and a full curriculum of cases from crises around the world, we hope this program will become a model for how to train the next generation of policy makers.”

Got that? The next financial crisis is going to be stickhandled with input from the operatives that answer to the financial sector of the deep state with a project that is funded by Bezos and Gates.

For the record, financial crises are the result of Federal Reserve manipulations of interest rates and the money supply.

The US Dollar's "Trump Bump" has Vanished

President Trump's victory and promise to implement an "America First" agenda propelled the US dollar to 13-year highs.

But the Trump bump has proved fleeting for the greenback, which has lost virtually all of its post-election gains.

The US dollar lost further ground against rivals on Tuesday. The euro jumped 1% to $1.109, the strongest level since the days before Trump's victory in November

Likewise, the dollar index, which measures the greenback against a basket of rival currencies, dropped to territory unseen since just after the election.

Crazy! College Student Has 2 Minute Freak Out After Being Triggered By Trump Sign

Sponsored by >>>/crazynews/

Trump Derangement Syndrome is a real thing, the first symptom of which, according to an op-ed in the LA Times, is a loss of all sense of proportion by those afflicted with the recently discovered disease.

Don’t believe us?

Just take 2 minutes to watch the following video from Western Washington University, a bastion of free speech, tolerance and progressive ideals. What you’ll see is a female student come completely unhinged after seeing a sign supporting Donald Trump.

Within milliseconds of crossing paths with the sign the unnamed student is triggered to such an extent that she shrieks at the top of her lungs.

A passerby from a part of the country that may not be as progressive as Washington might have thought the woman was being stabbed by a knife wielding terrorist.

But no… It was just a sign:

Via Campus Reform: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cG8JuJ3IDEA

At certain points throughout the video, passers-by stop to ask the woman if she’s alright, to which she seems to indicate that she’s screaming as a form of protest.

“Right here on the Western Washington campus, she’s going nuts with a Trump sign—she doesn’t like the Trump sign. She’s anti-Trump,” preacher Eric Bostrom can be heard explaining in the video, holding a sign that reads “Trump: Borders, Laws, Jobs, Liberty, USA,” and another intentionally-obtrusive sign containing shocking bible verses about judgement.

In the video, Bostrom claims that the woman screaming is “an art major,” and at one point in the video another woman who appears to be an administrator runs into the shot to ask the student if she is alright, to which the student replies “call the police, bitch.”

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen protesters totally lose control because of their affliction.

At the moment Trump was inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States, a video of this person totally freaking out was captured and shared across the world, highlighting just how difficult a time liberal snowflakes were having with their new reality:

Donald Trump Threatens to Cancel Press Briefings

President Donald Trump floated the idea of canceling the White House press briefings, expressing his frustration with the media for jumping on contradicting information from both himself and his press staff.

“As a very active President with lots of things happening, it is not possible for my surrogates to stand at podium with perfect accuracy!” Trump exclaimed on Twitter. “Maybe the best thing to do would be to cancel all future ‘press briefings’ and hand out written responses for the sake of accuracy???”

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer is scheduled to take the press podium today, after Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Sanders briefed reporters in the wake of the president’s decision to fire FBI director James Comey.

Trump appeared frustrated with the news narrative on Friday morning, after days of Democratic fueled hysteria surrounding his decision.

“The Fake Media is working overtime today!” he wrote, reminding his followers that the obsession with Russia was a story “fabricated by Dems as an excuse for losing the election.”

New Bluetooth Salt Shakers Spying On Consumers

Have you ever thought about your salt shaker?

Have you ever taken a second to really contemplate how the big data industry is deperate to make huge profits by spying on you 24/7?

Well, like it or not its true. And they have taken the time to develop a new way to spy on consumers, once again.

Behold, the new smart "multi-sensory device" known as "Smalt." Smalt is the Bluetooth speaker/mood lighting/salt dispenser — complete with app — that you really should not need to sprinkle salt on your food.

"Pair your phone and let the entertainment begin," reads the website. "Make any moment more memorable with the color-changing mood light."

"Surprise your guests and their palate with a fun, interactive way to shake salt and bring out the flavor," the site further proclaims.

Smalt has been in development for two and a half years, according to Singh. A functional Smalt prototype was featured in the Inventor's Corner at this year's International Home and Housewares Show in Chicago.

MSM Silent: New Deal Allows US To Sell Tons Of Natural Gas (And Beef) To China

Last Thursday night, the Trump administration announced a new trade deal with China, part of President Donal Trump's desired “reset” with China. Under the deal, the U.S. will begin importing chicken from China, while the Chinese will accept U.S. beef and natural gas.

This announcement was pounced upon by commodity traders, who bid up cattle and natural gas futures on the expectation that Chinese demand could boost prices. As of midday Friday, June live cattle traded for $1.25 per pound and June natural gas garnered $3.41 per million British thermal units.

The U.S. and China recently agreed to a major liquid natural gas (LNG) trade deal, which could generate $26 billion annually for America.

The Department of Commerce announced a 100-day action plan to allow Chinese companies to negotiate long-term contracts from American suppliers. The energy firm Wood Mackenzie estimates this deal could pump $26 billion into the U.S. economy each year by 2030.

“This is good news for US energy exports in the future, but it is only the first step,” Richard Kauzlarich, former U.S. ambassador to Azerbaijan and Bosnia and a professor at George Mason University, told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “First, LNG exports will require long-term contracts with U.S. producers/exporters. The Chinese have proven to be tough bargainers in the energy area – ask the Russians.”

China’s dramatic economic growth over the last decade has fueled its lust for oil and LNG. Rising demand has long surpassed Chinese energy production capabilities. As China’s need for oil and LNG imports rises, its dependence on the U.S. hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, boom has increased.

“I am not shocked that China, an emerging U.S. rival in Asia and indeed throughout the world, would turn to Washington for more and more LNG, and more broadly, more natural resources,” Harry J. Kazianis, director of defense studies at the Center for the National Interest, told TheDCNF. “Chinese officials have told me time and time again that they need to diversify where they get their energy from. They fear being overly dependent on any one source, or even any one continent, for their natural resource needs.”

China is now the largest foreign buyer of U.S. oil, according to new data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration. U.S. crude oil exports in February jumped 35 percent as China started buying American oil. The country surpassed the U.S. as the world’s largest net importer of petroleum in 2013.

“Second, is U.S. gas infrastructure (pipelines and export facilities including gas liquefaction capacity) adequate to handle significant exports to China?” Kauzlarich asked. “US pipeline infrastructure needs both modernization of existing facilities and new investment to realize the potential for US gas exports.”

China is expected to buy roughly 70 percent of its oil from foreign sources over the next few decades, largely from unstable parts of the world.

“In fact, in the months and years to come, I can see Beijing purchasing more and more U.S. natural resources — and that is a good thing for U.S. suppliers too, in that Washington also should have diversified purchases from around the globe,” Kazianis said. “It is a win win for everyone and a reason for America and China to find common ground on strategic issues that divide them.”

“Bottom line: the potential is there for significant LNG exports in the future but … will the Chinese pay the right price for the US producers/exporters to make the Chinese market profitable, and will the US have the necessary infrastructure to make this possible?” Kauzlarich asked.

The former ambassador previously told TheDCNF that China will continue importing LNG and oil, but he isn’t sure if it will accept its rising dependence on U.S. energy. China’s own fracking revolution stalled due to the poor quality of its shale reserves. Though China’s shale reserves are large, they are prohibitively expensive and technically difficult to extract, being economically recoverable at a shockingly high $345 a barrel.

U.S. consumers face minimal costs to export LNG and pocket huge economic benefits, according to a study the Department of Energy published in December 2015. The study found exporting American LNG would provide huge environmental benefits as well. The report states exporting LNG will help “address a variety of environmental concerns in the power‐generation sector.”

Exporting natural gas is likely to be a growth industry, as global demand for natural gas is expected to be 50 percent higher by 2035 than it is now, according to the International Energy Agency.

CentCom Breaks 'Safe Passage' Deal With ISIS, Kills Fleeing 'Moderate Rebel' Terrorists

On Friday the U.S. “Inherent Resolve” command of its operations in Syria and Iraq released a statement that points to unnecessary intensified fighting about the city of Raqqa and elsewhere.

The Syrian Arab Coalition and their Syrian Democratic Force partners completed the liberation of the Tabqah Dam, as well as the city of Tabqah and its nearby airfield May 10.

In Tabqah, the SDF’s increased pressure on ISIS from each flank allowed it to accelerate the pace of the fight, clear the final neighborhoods of the city, and isolate Tabqah Dam.Approximately 70 ISIS fighters conceded to the SDF’s terms, which included the dismantling of IEDs surrounding the dam, the surrender of all ISIS heavy weapons, and the forced withdrawal of all remaining fighters from Tabqah City.

The SDF accepted ISIS’s surrender of the city to protect innocent civilians and to protect the Tabqah dam infrastructure which hundreds of thousands of Syrians rely on for water, agriculture, and electricity.

(The “Syrian Arab Coalition” is U.S. propaganda parlance for its own forces in the area. That force is part of its Central Command. The “Syrian Democratic Force” are predominantly fighters of the Syrian-Kurdish YPG and a few U.S. special forces embedded with them.)

The Kurdish forces obviously made a deal with the ISIS rearguard. They offered safe passage (safe conduct) to the ISIS fighters if those would dismantle their demolition charges on the Tabqa dam and leave their heavy weapons behind. The ISIS group accepted and fulfilled its part of the deal. The dam was saved. The ISIS forces withdrew.

The Kurdish commander had made the right decision. Any fighting around, on or within the dam structure could have led to a catastrophic dam failure which would have killed ten-thousands (at least) further down the Euphrates.

The next line in the U.S. press release is therefore ominous:

The Coalition tracked fleeing fighters and targeted those that could be safely hit without harming civilians.

The U.S. military broke the “safe passage” deal the Kurds had made with the ISIS fighters.

Quoting that press release via an AFP reporter I remarked:

Moon of Alabama‏ @MoonofA -3:03 PM – 11 May 2017Ahh – the outrage from @afp if the Syrian government would do alike – targeting rebels after they surrender their weapons and move out ..

and:

Moon of Alabama‏ @MoonofA – 7:26 PM – 11 May 2017ISIS fighters got screwed on deal, were promised free escape then killed. That trick works only once.

To be able to make such deals in similar future situations one needs to keep them.

The Syrian government managed to reconcile with about 1,500 towns and local areas that had taken part in the insurgency against it. It promised an amnesty for the fighters and reestablishment of public services. If it would have broken this contract with some of the first areas that took part in it, others would never have agreed to such deals but would have fought down to the last man, woman and child. The Syrian government also offered safe passage to al-Qaeda held Idleb for various Jihadist groups in besieged areas. It stuck to those deals and never attacked the departing enemies. This enabled it to make more such deals. Large parts of Homs, Aleppo and Damascus thereby returned to government control without destructive fighting.

In Tabqa the U.S. military broke the deal and the word its Kurdish allies had given to ISIS when the deal was made. It tracked and killed those who were guaranteed safe passage.

WikiLeaks Releases 'AfterMidnight' and 'Assassin' CIA Malware Leaks

RELATED: >>>/realnews/2003

WikiLeaks released a new set of CIA Vault 7 leaks, publishing information on two CIA malware frameworks known as “AfterMidnight” and “Assassin.”

WikiLeaks published documents on malware titled “AfterMidnight” and “Assassin” which according to WikiLeaks are designed to operate within the Microsoft Windows operating system. Both programs are designed to monitor and report actions on the host computer and execute actions specified by the CIA.

“‘AfterMidnight’ allows operators to dynamically load and execute malware payloads on a target machine,” writes WikiLeaks on their website. “The main controller disguises as a self-persisting Windows Service DLL and provides secure execution of ‘Gremlins’ via a HTTPS based Listening Post (LP) system called ‘Octopus’.”

“Once installed on a target machine AM will call back to a configured LP on a configurable schedule, checking to see if there is a new plan for it to execute. If there is, it downloads and stores all needed components before loading all new gremlins in memory,” WikiLeaks explains. “‘Gremlins’ are small AM payloads that are meant to run hidden on the target and either subvert the functionality of targeted software, survey the target (including data exfiltration) or provide internal services for other gremlins. The special payload ‘AlphaGremlin’ even has a custom script language which allows operators to schedule custom tasks to be executed on the target machine.”

Describing the “Assassin” malware, WikiLeaks said, “‘Assassin’ is a similar kind of malware; it is an automated implant that provides a simple collection platform on remote computers running the Microsoft Windows operating system. Once the tool is installed on the target, the implant is run within a Windows service process.”

“‘Assassin’ (just like ‘AfterMidnight’) will then periodically beacon to its configured listening post(s) to request tasking and deliver results. Communication occurs over one or more transport protocols as configured before or during deployment,” they report. “The ‘Assassin’ C2 (Command and Control) and LP (Listening Post) subsystems are referred to collectively as ‘The Gibson’ and allow operators to perform specific tasks on an infected target.”

WikiLeaks stated in March that just 1% of their Vault 7 info had been leaked so far and later claimed that the CIA had lost control of their hacking arsenal.

Obamacare Imploding... Another Major Insurance Provider BAILS

Obamacare is imploding right before our eyes.

This is why the American Health Care Act that President Trump is pushing through is so important for the American people because Obamacare is can not sustain its self.

It has gotten so bad, that major insurance provider Aetna has completely pulled out of the exchanges, citing mass losses.

From Washington Examiner:

Health insurance giant Aetna said Wednesday that it will not be participating in any Obamacare exchanges in 2018.

“Our individual commercial products lost nearly $700 million between 2014 and 2016, and are projected to lose more than $200 million in 2017 despite a significant reduction in membership,” T.J. Crawford, Aetna spokesman, said in an email.

The reason for the losses, he said, came from structural issues within the exchanges “that have led to co-op failures and carrier exits, and subsequent risk pool deterioration.”

He did not cite uncertainty over the future of Obamacare, as the company had done when it announced last week that it would be exiting the exchange in Virginia.

Aetna also announced in early April that it would be pulling out of the exchange in Iowa, and the latest announcement adds Delaware and Nebraska to that list, both on and off the exchange.

Insurers have lost money in the exchanges for a variety of reasons, including that not enough young and healthy people enrolled in the federally-subsidized plans to offset the cost of covering older and sicker individuals with higher medical spending.

Aetna had participated in several Obamacare exchanges, but dramatically reduced its participation for 2017 soon after the Obama administration’s Department of Justice challenged the company’s planned merger with Humana.

The federal judge who decided the antitrust case, effectively blocking and terminating the merger, wrote in his opinion that Aetna appeared to reduce its exchange participation as backlash against the Obama administration’s attempt to block the merger.

Aetna has maintained its decision to leave the exchanges was based on $450 million in losses it suffered in 2015 on account its exchange participation.

Good! Pro-2nd Amendment Groups React Positively to New Trump Judicial Nominations

RELATED: >>>/goodnews/302

Gun rights activists praised President Trump's new judicial nominees on Wednesday.

"As he did in nominating Neil Gorsuch for the Supreme Court, once again President Trump is keeping his promise to the American people by nominating constitutional originalists across the federal courts," Chris Cox, head of the National Rifle Association's Institute for Legislative Action, told the Washington Free Beacon.

The Trump administration announced on Monday that the president would nominate 10 judges to the federal bench. Two of those nominees, Justice Joan Larsen of the Michigan Supreme Court and Justice David Stras of the Minnesota Supreme Court, were on the list of judges Trump considered for the Supreme Court. Amy Coney Barrett, John Bush, Kevin Newsom, David Nye, Scott Palk, Damien Schiff, Dabney Friedrich, and Terry Moorer are the other eight nominees.

The nominations come on the heels of Neil Gorsuch's confirmation to the Supreme Court, which was also well-received by the gun-rights community. The announcement comes just two weeks after President Trump's speech at the National Rifle Association's Annual Meeting where he promised not to let the leading gun-rights group or gun owners down.

The Second Amendment Foundation, which has a number of gun-rights cases pending in the federal courts, said the nominations look "very promising." "We will fully vet each nominee," the group's founder Alan M. Gottlieb said. "At this point, it appears that Donald Trump is fulfilling his commitment to bring balance to the federal courts by nominating judges who adhere to the Constitution rather than try to reinvent it to fit their own political agendas."

At this point, there are over 120 federal court vacancies waiting to be filled. With federal judges serving life terms, President Trump has an opportunity to shape the federal court system in a significant fashion. The Second Amendment Foundation, which recently launched the Judicial Accountability Project, is hoping Trump will shape it in a way that protects and extends individual gun rights.

"Like it or not," Gottlieb said, "the courts have the final say whether you have gun rights or not. "We cannot risk the Second Amendment by being lethargic and disinterested in those individuals who will have the authority and responsibility to judge the merits of gun-rights cases brought to the courts."

Liberals and Democrats have reacted to the news of the nominations with a great deal of alarm.

Gottlieb said the scorn from liberal groups only served to make him more confident in the president's nominees.

"The louder liberal anti-gunners complain about federal court nominees," he said, "the better the odds that these nominees will bring the proper perspective about the Bill of Rights to the bench."

The Tears of a Meximonkey: Mother's Day in an Illegal Alien Detention Facility

The woman arrived at the U.S.-Mexico border with her daughter in late April. “From what I had heard about the U.S., it was supposed to be a country that practices showing love to their fellow man. But what I have experienced with my daughter was horrible,” she wrote a few days later, after she was transferred from Border Patrol custody to Immigrations and Customs Enforcement.

An official took me who humiliated me, throwing all of my things into the trash, even the medicines of my daughter and the food that, with much work, I had brought. When I walked in to give my declaration the officials laughed at me because I arrived wet and with mud up to my abdomen. I asked them to please allow me to change my daughter’s clothes, but they wouldn’t let me. … We were still wet with mud. My sadness was that my daughter was shaking from the cold, wet and thirsty. But they would not give us water or food.

The letter was one of 22 I received from women who had crossed into the United States in recent weeks and were awaiting asylum hearings at the South Texas Family Residential Center in Dilley, Texas. Although the worst treatment, such as that described above, occurred before the women arrived at Dilley, conditions at the camp were described in stark terms.

The center, a complex of trailers surrounded by barbed wire in this small town south of San Antonio, is one of three Immigration and Customs Enforcement facilities that house women and children in the U.S.

U.S. policy on detaining families and children has fluctuated over the years. For decades, people seeking asylum in the U.S. were released while awaiting their hearings. Even with minimal supervision, the overwhelming majority of those not detained showed up for their asylum hearings. But a 1996 law made it more common to detain people hoping to get asylum while their cases were being processed. After largely doing away with family detention, in 2014 the Obama administration responded to a sudden influx of refugee children and families from Central America by detaining large numbers of families and speeding up deportations.

Obama’s family detention camps were strongly condemned for their inhumane conditions, but Trump has arguably made the situation even worse. “There’s been a much stronger emphasis on making the asylum process stricter, detaining more people and keeping them in detention for longer periods of time,” said Katharina Obser, a senior program officer at the Women’s Refugee Commission.

As the president’s rhetoric about “bad hombres” and border walls has escalated, the number of women entering the country without documentation has fallen — and the number of residents in the Dilley center, the largest immigrant detention facility in the country, has fluctuated. Though it has the capacity to accommodate up to 2,400 residents, the actual census is at times much lower. The number of people spending this Mother’s Day at the center is between 300 and 400, according to RAICES, an immigrants rights group that gathers this information from several sources, and the Dilley center has held as few as 120 people in recent months.

Because CoreCivic, the private company (formerly known as Corrections Corporation of America) that operates the family residential center for ICE, is paid a flat fee for running the detention center, the per-person cost of staying at the centers has soared even after monthly payments for running Dilley were cut from more than $20 million to $12.6 million when its contract was revised in October. When the facility is at its emptiest, taxpayers are shelling out more than $3,500 per person per night to keep women and children at Dilley, more than the bill for a night in the fanciest penthouse suite in one of Donald Trump’s Hawaiian resorts.

By all accounts, the experience at Dilley is nowhere near as grand. The restrooms lack privacy. Lights are sometimes left on at night, making it difficult to sleep. The women at Dilley report that the water smells and tastes bad and sometimes makes them sick. Many people in town have voiced similar concerns, and according to Dilley resident Jose Asuncion, “anyone who can afford to buys bottled water.” Medical care at Dilley as well as the two other ICE family detention centers has been inadequate, according to immigration advocates.

Enraged by a Crowd of Muslims, Man Intensely Defends Donald Trump and the Trump Presidency

A man was caught on video delivering a long anti-Muslim tirade against a family vacationing last week on a Texas beach, repeatedly screaming at them about sharia law, ISIS, and Donald Trump.

Fourteen members of the family were on weeklong reunion in South Padre Island when the man, who was identified in a police report as Alexander Downing, of Waterford, Connecticut, approached them.

"You're a fucking Muslim, motherfucker," the man says at one point in front of the family, which included children playing on the beach just feet away. "You will never ever, ever stop me, my Christianity," the man says, "from rising above your sharia law. Your sharia law don't mean shit to me."

Sharia — a religious code of conduct, no different than those contained in other Abrahamic religions — has often been used as a fear-inducing term associated with anti-Western beliefs in recent years.

The video, which was captured by Noria Alward, 19, and posted on YouTube, shows Downing, intoxicated, approaching the family in an aggressive manner — repeatedly shouting obscenities and veiled threats while pointing his finger in their faces.

"Guess what? ISIS don't mean shit to me, motherfuckers," Downing says again in the video, as he circles back towards the group, shouting in the face of another man.

"Donald Trump will stop you. Donald Trump will stop you! Donald Trump got you motherfuckers. Watch… watch."

He then proceeds to grab his crotch, in front of children, telling the group to "suck my dick."

"My country is the greatest country in the world," Downing screams. He then begins to thump his chest repeatedly with his fists, while shouting, "Come fuck with Donald Trump. That's my motherfucking president!"

Commiefornia Universities Are Now Burning Books

RELATED: >>539794

California universities were caught removing and even destroying library books after digitizing them, a process critics warn leads to 1984-style censorship in which only “corrected” copies of books remain.

UC Berkeley in particular recently removed 135,000 books from its school library, claiming that by digitizing the books, library space can be reused for meeting rooms and “nap pods.”

But libraries have existed since the Middle Ages as vaults of knowledge safe from tampering; in comparison, the way universities are disappearing books after digitizing them allows anyone with a “politically correct” agenda a way to alter books during digitization – including important texts on history, science and humanities – without anyone ever knowing.

“The removal of 60% of the physical collection at the science library of the University of California, Santa Cruz, for instance, caused an uproar after it was reported that many of the books removed had been destroyed,” reported the Christian Science Monitor.

“Given the short timeframe and seeming lack of consultation of the faculty, however, many critics expressed doubts that this was actually the case.”

This, of course, draws parallels to the novel 1984, in which the protagonist, Winston, works at the Ministry of Truth altering books and important texts while sequentially destroying the original sources to hide the evidence of tampering.

In reality, it’s certainly plausible that SJW student-workers digitizing books at a university could “correct for history” by altering or downright removing passages from books that don’t conform to their world view.

Remember, these are the same activists who demand restrictions on free speech if it “offends others” and demand the removal of historical war memorials if they trigger “micro-aggressions” – and college campuses are now breeding grounds for this ideology.

“Suppose they do scan or digitize entire libraries. What then? Will it not be far, far easier for systems of authority to control or manipulate access to historical information?” Asked attorney Quintus Curtius. “How can we be sure that the University of California will not one day decide to prevent access to all works written before 1950 as being ‘offensive’ or not in tune with political correctness?”

“When it comes to our precious cultural heritage, we cannot place our faith in the same institutions that have been betraying that same heritage for the past 40 years.”

On a similar note, Google’s Vint Cerf warned we are heading into a “digital dark age” because digitalized documents will eventually be lost or lack compatibility with new formats.

The latter is already more-or-less the case with eBooks which suffer problems converting between different formatting standards.

“Old formats of documents that we’ve created or presentations may not be readable by the latest version of the software because backwards compatibility is not always guaranteed,” said Cerf. “And so what can happen over time is that even if we accumulate vast archives of digital content, we may not actually know what it is.”

Donald Trump’s Trade Representative Confirmed, Sights Set on NAFTA

President Donald Trump has repeatedly thundered against NAFTA, promising a “massive” renegotiation of the trade deal, but his attempts are just getting started.

Congress finally approved Robert Lighthizer, Trump’s nominee for the United States Trade Representative on Thursday, allowing the administration to begin “fast track” trade discussions with Congress. Lighthizer’s nomination was stalled in the Senate for four months, effectively freezing attempts from the administration to move forward on NAFTA.

Despite efforts by Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and National Trade Council Director Peter Navarro to progress Trump’s trade agenda, Congress insisted that Lighthizer be confirmed and in place before continuing fast track negotiations, according to White House sources.

“I would call it a slow track to hell,” a White House senior aide said in an interview with Breitbart News, blaming Republicans opposed to renegotiating trade deals and Democrats eager to stall Trump’s agenda. The administration still has to formally notify Congress of its intentions to renegotiate NAFTA, triggering a 90-day waiting period.

Trump shared his frustration in an interview with the Economist, pointing out that even though Mexico and Canada were ready to renegotiate NAFTA, his negotiator wasn’t confirmed.

“Here you have two people calling saying, ‘Can we negotiate?’ I say ‘Yes,’ and I have to wait for a hundred days,” Trump said. “I don’t know what a hundred days is going to be like.”

Three Republican Senators, John McCain, Ben Sasse and Cory Gardner, voted against Lighthizer, voicing dissent with Trump’s trade agenda.

“Unfortunately, your confirmation process has failed to reassure us that you understand the North American Free Trade Agreement’s (NAFTA) positive economic benefits to our respective States and the nation as a whole,” Sasse and McCain wrote in a joint statement expressing their decision to vote against Lighthizer.

“I’m afraid his policies could hurt Colorado’s farmers and ranchers,” Gardner explained after his vote, citing Lighthizer’s views on trade.

Philosophical divisions on trade extend to the White House, according to the Financial Times, as some of the president’s economic advisors want to carefully thread the negotiation process. Others favor a more dramatic approach, citing Trump’s campaign populist rhetoric against NAFTA.

Tensions were compounded by news that Trump was considering pulling out of NAFTA altogether, setting defenders of the trade deal scrambling to convince him otherwise. Although he ultimately agreed to renegotiate the deal rather than terminate it, Trump indicated that he seriously considered it.

“I was all set to terminate,” he said to the Economist. “This wasn’t like…this wasn’t a game I was playing. … I wasn’t playing chess or poker or anything else.”

ucucks getting stopped by customs because their wife's sons have different surnames

Hundreds and thousands of parents are being stopped at Britain's borders by officials suspicious they have kidnapped their own sons and daughters.

Some 600,000 mothers and fathers have been quizzed at airports, ferry and Eurostar terminals because the UK's 'out-of-date' passport system does not recognise their children might have a different surname.

Many innocent families have been forced to endure the embarrassment of being held up by officials and asked to prove they are the legal guardians at the end of their holidays.

The problem is expected to get worse because of social changes (such as sharing your wife with black men every weekend) that have seen a rising number of parents and children who do not share the same surname.

The issue particularly affects degenerate "enlightened and empowered" women who remarry to naggers, those who keep their own name when they wed, and cohabiting couples - the fastest-growing family type in the country (thank you blacked.com).

BOOM! Russian Hacker Was Offered Money By FBI If He ‘Confessed’ To Election Hacking

A Russian hacker claims that the FBI offered him money, a home and citizenship in the U.S. if he falsely admitted to conducting the Clinton email cyberattacks.

According to Yevgeny Nikulin, Comey’s FBI offered him a lucrative deal if he agreed to take responsibility for ‘hacking the US election.’

Nikulin, who was arrested in October 2016 and is currently being held in a Czech prison, claims the FBI were desperate to justify the whole Russian hacking narrative to the American public.

The Washington Times reported: https://archive.fo/W7iuV

A Russian man wanted by the Justice Department on charges connected to hacking U.S. companies now claims the FBI offered him immunity in exchange for accepting responsibility for cyberattacks targeting former Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

Yevgeny Nikulin, the alleged hacker, laid the claim to Russian media Thursday in a letter sent from a Czech Republic prison cell amid an international extradition battle currently underway between Washington and Moscow.

FBI agents promised Mr. Nikulin money, American citizenship and a free apartment for taking the fall over hacking Mrs. Clinton’s campaign, he alleged in a letter published Thursday by Nastoyashchoe Vremya, a Russian-language website.

“[They told me:] you will have to confess to breaking into Clinton’s inbox for [President Trump] on behalf of [Russian President Vladimir Putin],” Mr. Nikulin wrote, as translated by The Moscow Times.

He also claims the FBI wanted him to falsely ‘admit’ that he was working for Putin.

The Moscow Times reported: https://archive.fo/2fJUq

The cyberattack has been widely blamed on Kremlin-backed hackers.

“[They told me:] you will have to confess to breaking into Clinton’s inbox for [U.S. President Donald Trump] on behalf of [Russian President Vladimir Putin],” Nikulin wrote. In exchange, his interrogators promised U.S. citizenship, an apartment and money, he said.

Good! Citing Trump's New Tariff, Jackman Lumber Mill to Add Jobs, Second Shift

Rural Growth Is Back! UN Agenda 21 BTFO!

The Dover-Foxcroft-based Pleasant River Lumber company is expanding its Jackman sawmill in anticipation of increased demand for American lumber amid the U.S. government’s plans to levy tariffs on Canadian softwood.

In a media release Tuesday, Pleasant River Lumber said it is expanding its Moose River spruce mill in Jackman to add drying capacity this summer and hire up to 20 new workers for a second shift starting this fall.

“We have confidence with the recent tariff announcement a level playing field will exist that will allow us to invest in and expand our facilities in Maine,” said Jason Brochu, co-president of the family-owned Pleasant River Lumber.

The company employs 300 workers at its spruce and pine sawmills in Dover-Foxcroft, Jackman, Hancock and Sanford. The company acquired the Moose River Mill in Jackman in 2015, and it now produces about 85 million board feet of dimensional lumber a year.

Brochu said that the Moose River sawmill has faced “incredible competition from Canada in the past due to its close proximity to the border.” In an interview with the BDN late last year, Brochu said that Pleasant River Lumber “has been forced to run below capacity during this cycle due to intense and unfair competition from Canadian imports.”

On Monday, the U.S. Department of Commerce announced that it would levy countervailing duties on Canadian softwood lumber, ranging from 3.02 percent to 24.12 percent depending on the company.

The move was prompted by a trade petition from the U.S. lumber industry arguing that Canadian lumber exporters have been flooding the American market with cheap wood subsidized by the Canadian government in the form of access to public timberlands.

For Pleasant River Lumber, Brochu said that the announcement of countervailing duties made the timing right for an expansion.

“We will be spending the summer building a new dry kiln, hiring and training new workers and securing the necessary raw material and bi-product markets to handle the increased production,” Brochu said.

Trump Weighs Options On Breaking Up Wall Street Banks, Restoring Glass-Steagall Act

President Donald Trump said he’s actively considering a breakup of giant Wall Street banks, giving a push to efforts to revive a Depression-era law separating consumer and investment banking.

“I’m looking at that right now,” Trump said of breaking up banks in a 30-minute Oval Office interview with Bloomberg News. “There’s some people that want to go back to the old system, right? So we’re going to look at that.”

Trump also said he’s open to increasing the U.S. gas tax to fund infrastructure development, in a further sign that policies unpopular with the Republican establishment are under consideration in the White House. He described higher gas taxes as acceptable to truckers – “I have one friend who’s a big trucker,” he said – as long as the proceeds are dedicated to improving U.S. highways.

In other news, Trump said he’d be willing to meet with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, against the recommendations of his political advisers, to avert a military confrontation with the U.S. adversary. He also said that a Republican replacement for the Affordable Care Act would protect Americans with pre-existing conditions at least as well as Obamacare.

During the presidential campaign, Trump called for a “21st century” version of the 1933 Glass-Steagall law that required the separation of consumer and investment banking. The 2016 Republican party platform also backed restoring the legal barrier, which was repealed in 1999 under a financial deregulation signed by then-President Bill Clinton.

A handful of lawmakers blame the repeal for contributing to the 2008 financial crisis, an argument that Wall Street flatly rejects. Trump couldn’t unilaterally restore the law; Congress would have to pass a new version.

Trump officials, including Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn, have offered support for bringing back some version of Glass-Steagall, though they’ve offered scant details on an updated approach. Both Mnuchin and Cohn are former bankers who worked for Goldman Sachs Group Inc.

The KBW Bank Index of 24 major U.S. lenders had climbed as much as 1.2 percent before Trump’s comment, before dropping about 1 percentage point. It soon recovered most of that, and was up 0.9 percent as of 1:07 p.m. in New York. Firms including JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Bank of America Corp., the nation’s two largest banks, were among companies that swooned.

The Glass-Steagall law essentially split banking into two categories: deposit-taking companies backed by taxpayers that primarily made loans to businesses and consumers, and investment banks and insurers that trade and underwrite securities and create or focus on other complex instruments. Severing those businesses would prevent Americans’ nest eggs from flowing into more volatile capital markets, Congress reasoned at the time.

ISP Bombarded With 82,000+ Demands to Reveal Alleged Pirates by jewish rights agencies

Scandinavian telecoms operator Telia has revealed how rightsholders are bombarding the company with demands to identify alleged pirates. During the past year alone, Telia has been ordered to hand over personal details relating to more than 82,000 IP addresses, a large proportion of which will go to known copyright trolls.

It was once a region where people could share files without fear of reprisal, but over the years Scandinavia has become a hotbed of ‘pirate’ prosecutions.

Sweden, in particular, has seen many sites shut down and their operators sentenced, notably those behind The Pirate Bay but also more recent cases such as those against DreamFilm and Swefilmer.

To this backdrop, members of the public have continued to share files, albeit in decreasing numbers. However, at the same time copyright trolls have hit countries like Sweden, Finland, and Denmark, hoping to scare alleged file-sharers into cash settlements.

New study: Whites more likely to support pro-White policies when told that they're the minority soon

>A new study published in the journal Psychological Science shows us that White people are more likely to support pro-White policies when we are told that White people are becoming a minority.

Based on two studies conducted by Northwestern researchers Maureen Craig and Jennifer Richeson, it shows us that anti-White policies will not last forever as we start to stand up for ourselves.

The first study had one group that was informed that white people are now a minority in California, and another group that was told the Hispanic (mixed race) population in the United States, is now as numerous as the Black population.

The two groups were then asked their positions on various political issues. The group that was informed White people are a minority in California were more pro-White than the second group which much more preferred the policies of the anti-Whites, resulting in White genocide.

The second study was similar to the first. There were two groups; the first one was shown a prediction that predicted White people to be the minority in the U.S. by the year 2046. The second group was shown the same prediction, but it did not mention anything about race.

As in the first experiment, the first group were more likely to oppose anti-White policies and support White survival than the second group.

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.”

Professional Cunt "Journalist" Louise Mensch Claims There's A Sealed Indictment Against Trump

This evening, investigative journalist Louise Mensch dropped a bombshell on Twitter. According to a posting on her site, Patribotics, there exists a sealed indictment against Donald Trump, but it can't be enacted due to technical reasons.

Although Mensch has a large following online, and has appeared on TV in numerous outlets, she has made extremely questionable claims several times regarding Trump.

Some of the questionable claims: That Putin murdered Andrew Breitbart to help Steve Bannon; that Russia planted emails on Anthony Weiner's computer; that Bannon and his team were responsible for bomb threats at Jewish community centers.

Mensch has been called a "conspiracy queen" and by multiple news outlets. And The Intercept writes this about her:

One of the most popular online conspiracists among Democrats is now the former Tory member of the UK Parliament and current Murdoch-rag-writer Louise Mensch, whose history of public humiliations and pure bigotry is far too long to chronicle.

But because she has now turned her deranged behavior to peddling any and all conspiracies about Trump and Russia, she has built a huge Twitter following among Democrats convinced that all of their critics are Kremlin spies and anyone who dies was murdered by the Putin/Trump axis to protect their conspiratorial cover-up.

President Trump Launches Probe Into Mass Voter Fraud, Journalist To Hand Over Trove of Evidence

President Donald Trump has signed an executive order to launch an immediate probe into claims of widespread voter fraud on behalf of Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election.

Thursday’s signing of the executive order will see a commission review numerous reports which indicate that millions of people illegally voted for Hillary in 2016.

The announcement comes months after a study published by NPR proved that over 25 million Hillary Clinton votes were fraudulently placed – meaning that Clinton should have lost the popular vote by an enormous margin.

Pbs.org reports: https://archive.fo/oa8XG

The White House said the president’s “Advisory Commission on Election Integrity” would examine allegations of improper voting and fraudulent voter registration in states and across the nation. Vice President Mike Pence will chair the panel and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach will be vice chair of the commission, which will report back to Trump by 2018.

Trump has alleged, without evidence, that 3 to 5 million people voted illegally in his 2016 campaign against Democrat Hillary Clinton. He has vowed since the start of his administration to investigate voter fraud, a process that has been delayed for months.

https://archive.fo/Cflrw

A brave journalist has offered to hand over a mountain of evidence to Trump that conclusively proves widespread voter fraud took place during the 2016 presidential election.

Following Trump’s announcement of a voter fraud task force, James O’Keefe from Project Veritas has offered to hand over incriminating evidence to the White House.

“We have troves of footage proving that #voterfraudisreal, and we would be happy to cooperate with @POTUS’s voter fraud probe,” O’Keefe tweeted on Thursday.

Infowars.com reports: https://archive.fo/hdRWV

O’Keefe’s media outlet Project Veritas was credited during the 2016 US presidential election with taking down Democrat party “dark operatives” who were paid to stage violence at rallies and blame Trump supporters. As a result two operatives, Robert Creamer and Scott Foval, were fired.

A subsequent exposé released days after Project Veritas’ first report also caught Clinton campaign operatives scheming on how to “successfully commit voter fraud on a massive scale.”

DWP declared a ‘leading’ Disability Confident employer, despite UN rights violations

The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has been declared a gold-standard employer of disabled people under its own much-criticised scheme, despite being found guilty of “grave or systematic violations” of the UN disability convention.

DWP documents obtained by Disability News Service (DNS) through a freedom of information request show how it was “validated” as a “Disability Confident Leader” on 4 November 2016, just days before the report by the UN committee on the rights of persons with disabilities was published.

Among the UN’s conclusions was that DWP ministers had “regularly portrayed” disabled people as “being dependent or making a living out of benefits, committing fraud as benefit claimants, being lazy and putting a burden on taxpayers”.

DWP “strongly” disagreed with the UN report, and appeared to suggest this week that its findings were not relevant “because Disability Confident assessments look at an organisation’s employment practices and commitment to supporting both disabled employees and potential candidates”.

The validation also came despite a Civil Service survey last year which showed how more than 1,400 disabled DWP civil servants claimed they had faced discrimination in the workplace, an increase of nearly a quarter on the previous year.

The Disability Confident validation process, carried out by the Business Disability Forum (BDF), of which DWP is a member, makes no mention of those figures, or the UN report.

According to the scheme, a Disability Confident Leader – the highest of the scheme’s three levels – must ensure “there are no barriers to the development and progression of disabled staff” and that managers “are aware of how they can support staff who are sick or absent from work”.

New Orleans mayor on removing Confederate monuments: "We're actually correcting history"

When the jazz musician Wynton Marsalis first broached the idea of removing the Confederate monuments in New Orleans to Mayor Mitch Landrieu in 2014, the mayor was skeptical.

“I really rejected it, to tell you the truth,” Landrieu told TIME in an interview Wednesday. But he says it soon became “painfully obvious” that several of New Orleans public monuments' commemorating Reconstruction-era white uprisings and defenders of slavery had to go. "The truth was that these monuments were put up purposefully to send a message and to be a sanitized version of the Confederacy," Landrieu says.

Two-and-a-half years later, following a city council vote and a series of ongoing legal challenges, the monuments in New Orleans have started falling—and the removal has awakened the ghosts that linger in the South, where some see tributes to the Confederacy as symbols of heritage and others as reminders of hate.

A Serbian activist on Wednesday threw a pie in the face of Jewish French Nuclear Shyster Bernard-Henri Levy at a showing of his film “Peshmerga” in Belgrade.

The film about the Kurds’ battle against the Islamic State group was being shown at the Beldocs documentary festival in the city when ((((Leeeeveeeeeey))))) was ambushed by a member of the small anti globalist group SKOJ, the state-run Tanjug news agency reported.

As Levy addressed the audience, the young man ran in front of him and threw the pie in his face. Two others, claiming to be members of the SKOJ, shouted: “Murderer, leave Belgrade!,” and an activist stepped out on stage with a banner asserting that philosopher advocated murder.

During the 1990s, Levy strongly criticized the siege of the Bosnian capital Sarajevo by Serb forces and was a powerful voice against the regime of the then Serbian kebab remover Slobodan Milosevic as he interfered with the jewish plans for islamification of europe.

even the chinese hate sjws

If you look at any thread about Trump, Islam or immigration on a Chinese social media platform these days, it’s impossible to avoid encountering the term baizuo, or literally, the ‘white left’. It first emerged about two years ago, and yet has quickly become one of the most popular derogatory descriptions for Chinese netizens to discredit their opponents in online debates.

So what does ‘white left’ mean in the Chinese context, and what’s behind the rise of its (negative) popularity? It might not be an easy task to define the term, for as a social media buzzword and very often an instrument for ad hominem attack, it could mean different things for different people. A thread on “why well-educated elites in the west are seen as naïve “white left” in China” on Zhihu, a question-and-answer website said to have a high percentage of active users who are professionals and intellectuals, might serve as a starting point.

The question has received more than 400 answers from Zhihu users, which include some of the most representative perceptions of the 'white left'. Although the emphasis varies, baizuo is used generally to describe those who “only care about topics such as immigration, minorities, LGBT and the environment” and “have no sense of real problems in the real world”; they are hypocritical humanitarians who advocate for peace and equality only to “satisfy their own feeling of moral superiority”; they are “obsessed with political correctness” to the extent that they “tolerate backwards Islamic values for the sake of multiculturalism”; they believe in the welfare state that “benefits only the idle and the free riders”; they are the “ignorant and arrogant westerners” who “pity the rest of the world and think they are saviours”.

Apart from some anti-hegemonic sentiments, the connotations of ‘white left’ in the Chinese context clearly resemble terms such as ‘regressive liberals’ or ‘libtards’ in the United States. In a way the demonization of the ‘white left’ in Chinese social media may also reflect the resurgence of right-wing populism globally.

However, Chinese netizens’ fierce attacks against the ‘white left’ seem curiously devoid of experiential motivation, since all these problems that conservatives in the west are concerned about – immigration, multiculturalism, minority rights, and affirmative actions – are largely unknown to Chinese society. This is not to say that discrimination against women and ethnic, religious and sexual minorities do not exist in China. They are no less serious or structural here than in any other societies. But cultural and identity politics has never gained much salience as political issues under an authoritarian regime, although feminist activists have received increased attention recently. Overall, there has been ‘too little’, rather than ‘too much’ political correctness as perceived by conservatives in the west.

Chinese netizens’ fierce attacks against the ‘white left’ seem curiously devoid of experiential motivation.

In fact, heated discussions about baizuo on Chinese social media websites rarely make reference to domestic issues, except for occasionally and unsurprisingly insulting Chinese Muslims for being “unintegrated” or “complicit in the spread of Islam extremism”. The stigmatization of the ‘white left’ is driven first and foremost by Chinese netizens’ understanding of ‘western’ problems. It is a symptom and weakness of the Other.

university of arizona hires students to start sjw police

Administrators at the University of Arizona are now accepting applications for “social justice advocates,” whose job it is to snitch on other students accused of bias. They’re also expected to hold educational programs about “the mosaic of diversity, multiculturalism and inclusivity” and maintain “social justice bulletin boards” in student residence halls.

The job, which officially calls (archived link) for the advocates to “report any bias incidents or claims to appropriate Residence Life staff,” pays the student workers $10 an hour. They’re expected to work 15 hours a week, which means they could be making as much as $600 a month to police their fellow students.

Former Democrat Rep Corrine Brown Found Guilty of Fraud, Tax Evasion

Former Democratic Rep. Corrine Brown was found guilty on 18 fraud and tax evasion charges Thursday afternoon in a Jacksonville federal court.

The charges stemmed from accusations she illegally siphoned thousands of dollars from her charity into her own bank account for lavish parties, trips and shopping excursions.

Brown was found not guilty on four of the 22 total charges.

Brown served as a Florida representative in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1993 until 2017. She was defeated in her 2016 primary race.

The indictment came after an investigation into the charity One Door for Education Foundation Inc., which federal prosecutors say was purported to give scholarships to poor students but instead filled the coffers of Brown and her associates.

Earlier this year, One Door President Carla Wiley pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud after it as determined that she had deposited $800,000 into the foundation's account over four years. Over that time, federal prosecutors say it gave one scholarship for $1,000 and that Wiley transferred herself tens of thousands of dollars.

"Congresswoman Brown and her chief of staff are alleged to have used the congresswoman's official position to solicit over $800,000 in donations to a supposed charitable organization, only to use that organization as a personal slush fund," Assistant U.S. Attorney General Leslie Caldwell, chief of the Justice Department's criminal division, said in a statement earlier this year.

Brown's former chief of staff, Elias "Ronnie" Simmons, and the charity's president pleaded guilty after their federal indictments for misusing the charity's funds, and testified against Brown.

Brown said she was left in the dark about the goings-on with One Door's money, and blamed the theft on Simmons.

FLASHBACK: When Books are Burned, They Soon Burn People

Book burning has been an ugly part of human history. The symbolic significance of book-burning lies in the message from the state, or an agent of the state that “We own you, because we own the ideas we allow you to be exposed to”.

A Brief Snippet of Book-Burning

Roman history, 25 AD. Imagine having a detailed account of Roman history before 25 AD. What a treasure that would be for historians. We have pieces of things from that time, but Senator Aulus Cremutius Cordus wrote all about the civil war and the reign of Caesar Augustus. To cover up the assassination, or as some say, to turn Brutus into a folk hero, the books were burned because they tell the real story. In ancient Rome, the people had too much say and the elite felt threatened that Rome was not ruled with more of an iron first toward the general population. Subsequently, books were burned.

The Royal Library of Alexandria. Alexandria contained all of the information for entire contents hadn’t perished in a fire on four separate occasions, including one uuncident when Julius Caesar burned it down in 48 B.C. at the same time that he set fire to his own ships. The library was torched and this movement involved anti-Christian or anti-Pagan movements (i.e. whatever was in vogue at the time). The hope, in part, was the Christianity would die in these fires. Christianity was a threat to the absolutism of government practiced by the Roman state.

THE PREHOLOCAUST PERIOD– History is replete with the book-burning that went on in Nazi Germany where there was a 100% effort to control the narrative for the purposes of societal brainwashing. Ideas about freedom and indepenence were burned in the books that mentioned them. Subsequently, Christian youth groups gave way to the Hitler Youth Movement. The purpose of the book-burning was to eviscerate any opposition to an unabashed dictatorship where the people belonged to the state and had no say over their future or their fate. Book burning became synonomous with dictatorial regimes.

Comic books, 1948. Unfortunately, America did not retain the lessons of history and importance of book-burning faded into the annals of history. Thanks to Dr. Fredric Wertham we know that parents were tired of their children being corrupted by violence in comic books. Wertham wrote an article he titled “Horror in the Nursery,” and subsequent parents engaged in mass burning of comic books. There was no holocaust that evolved from this endeavor, but it was crystal clear that America was doomed to repeat the mistakes of the past.

The Washinton Post, New York Times and the Federal Government. Most of us already know the story. Your truly and my colleagues have been accused of promoting “fake news”, or dangerous ideas. These ideas are so dangerous that plans are being made to shut down our radio shows, Youtube channels, Facebook accounts, Snapchat accounts and any other social media where people congregate to identify corruption as well as to share the message about the blessings of freedom. The Washington Post, which is playing the role of the traditional Brown Shirts, have changed the narrative. They have replaced the worn out phrase of “conspiracy theorist” and have replaced it with the moniker of “fake news”. And since the message coming from fake news is inherently dangerous and can even change elections in order to give the Russians the result that they want (lol), fake news must be controlled and even eliminated and this is what we are beginning to see. When the MSM and the social media along with the government conspire to close websites, they are, in effect, burning books in order to control ideas.

Conclusion

America has entered a very dangerous period. When the First Amendment is gone the second will follow. What follows the loss fo the first and second amendment? The answer is genocide. America, we need to legally go after the powers that be that are burning our books.

Former Assistant Director of FBI: James Comey Threw the Reputation of the FBI Under the Bus

Please read some history about the REAL James Comey, before he ever became FBI director: https://archive.fo/ZzxVA

The former assistant director of the FBI tells Breitbart News that President Donald Trump fired bureau director James Comey for legitimate reasons.

“He was fired for cause in my view,” James Kallstrom informs Breitbart News. “When the referral came to the bureau close to a year ago, Comey knew at that point, if not soon after, that the Justice Department had no interest in conducting a criminal investigation of Hillary Clinton. They would never approve a grand jury and they would never approve an indictment.”

Kallstrom faults Comey for presiding over a “sham” investigation of Clinton. From granting unnecessary immunity deals to conducting an interview of Clinton not under oath to too slickly issuing a document dump the day after the Fourth of July, the FBI deviated from standard-operating procedure during the investigation of the former secretary of state’s reliance on private servers to send and receive classified material, Kalstrom says.

“He did something the FBI never does,” the former head of the FBI’s New York office points out of Comey. “It never discloses the charges against an unindicted person—ever.”

Kallstrom maintains, “He was so out of left field—the things he did.”

This included citing a lack of intent on Clinton’s part to rationalize not pursuing the case further when the relevant statute does not mention intent. “Intent does not matter at all,” Kallstrom explains to Breitbart News. “There’s no ‘intent’ in the statute. Nevertheless, in my opinion there’s a busload of intent.”

Comey angered supporters of Donald Trump when he refused to recommend charges against Mrs. Clinton in July despite finding numerous instances of wrongdoing. When he reopened an investigation into the Democratic Party’s presidential nominee less than two weeks prior to the election, Comey enraged the supporters of Mrs. Clinton. Ultimately, the FBI director less than four years into his ten-year term counted few friends in either party.

“The cause [for firing] is that he took upon himself authority he didn’t have, number one,” Kallstrom says of the former FBI director acting as a de facto prosecutor rather than as a mere investigator. “Number two, he told the public that he undertook a ‘thorough’ investigation. You can’t put ‘thorough’ and ‘lack of a grand jury’ in the same sentence. He threw the reputation of the FBI under the bus.”

The Trump administration noted a loss of faith in Comey and the need to bolster public trust in the bureau as reasons for the shocking dismissal of the FBI director. In the history of the FBI, just two other directors, William Sessions and L. Patrick Gray, acting as director in the wake of J. Edgar Hoover’s death, left the post involuntarily at the direction of the president.

“He’s basically a good guy,” Kallstrom notes of Comey. “I don’t think he’s done this with malice aforethought. He just lacks common sense. He just wasn’t up for the job of FBI director.”

Trump's Paranoia Continues To Mount As He Leans Harder On Family And Friends For Support

WASHINGTON (AP) — After four months in office, President Donald Trump has become distrustful of some of his White House staff, heavily reliant on a handful of family members and longtime aides, and furious that the White House’s attempts to quell the firestorm over the FBI and congressional Russia investigations only seem to add more fuel.

Trump’s frustrations came to a head this week with the firing of FBI Director James Comey, who was overseeing the probe into his campaign’s possible ties to Russia’s election meddling. Fearful that his own team would leak the decision, Trump kept key staff in the dark as he pondered the dramatic move.

Chief strategist Steve Bannon learned on television. The communications staff charged with explaining the decision to the American people had an hour’s notice.

When the White House’s defense of the move failed to meet his ever-changing expectations, Trump tried to take over himself. But he wound up creating new headaches for the White House, including with an apparent threat to Comey.

For a White House accustomed to bouts of chaos, Trump’s handling of Comey’s firing could have serious and long-lasting implications. Already Trump’s decision appears to have emboldened the Senate intelligence committee investigating into Russia’s election interference and the president’s associates, with lawmakers announcing a subpoena for former national security adviser Michael Flynn. Comey’s allies also quickly made clear they would defend him against attacks from Trump, including disputing the president’s assertion that Comey told Trump he was not personally under investigation.

Several people close to the president say his reliance on a small cadre of advisers as he mulled firing Comey reflects his broader distrust of many of his own staffers. He leans heavily on daughter Ivanka Trump and son-in-law Jared Kusher, as well as Hope Hicks, his trusted campaign spokeswoman and Keith Schiller, his longtime bodyguard. Schiller was among those Trump consulted about Comey and was tapped by the president to deliver a letter informing the director of his firing.

Trump confidants say Bannon has been marginalized on major decisions, including Comey’s firing, after clashing with Kushner. And while Trump praised chief of staff Reince Priebus after the House passed a health care bill last week, associates say the president has continued to raise occasional questions about Priebus’ leadership in the West Wing.

Trump spent most of the week out of sight, a marked change from a typically jam-packed schedule that often includes multiple on-camera events per day. Even when aides moved ahead on an executive order creating a voter fraud commission — a presidential pet project that some advisers thought they had successfully shelved — Trump signed the directive in private.

More than a lack of momentum on major policy goals, Trump is said to be seething over the flood of leaks pouring out of the White House and into news reports. He’s viewed even senior advisers suspiciously, including Bannon and Priebus, when stories about internal White House drama land in the press.

Boy who killed himself never said he was bullied

An 8-year-old boy shown on surveillance video being knocked to the floor unconscious at school two days before he killed himself told staff he had fainted and never said he had been bullied or assaulted, a school spokeswoman said Friday.

Gabriel Taye's mother didn't learn of the bullying until her attorneys saw a copy of an email written by a Cincinnati police homicide detective in an investigative file that describes the scene outside a boys' bathroom, her lawyers said. The attorneys have questioned why the mother was told he fainted on Jan. 24 when the video shows he had been injured by another boy at Carson Elementary School.

The Hamilton County coroner said she is reopening the investigation into Gabriel's suicide. He hanged himself with a necktie in the bedroom of his Cincinnati apartment on Jan. 26.

The real reason Trump canned Comey

The straw that broke the camel’s back for now-ousted FBI Director James Comey was the investigation he apparently wasn’t doing.

President Trump’s much-reported frustration with Comey almost certainly arose from the G-man’s failure to get to the bottom of Obama aides’ illegal leaks of classified information — leaks aimed at undermining the incoming Trump administration.

And top Republicans in Congress shared that concern.

Under grilling last week, the director refused to say whether he had launched a probe into illegal leaks by the Obama team of highly classified intelligence intercepts of Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn and possibly other private US citizens working on the Trump transition.

“I don’t want to answer that,” Comey told Senate Judicary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley. The chairman described that reticence as odd given how the government “regularly acknowledges” when it’s investigating classified leaks.
