Scottish Parliament Votes For 2nd Independence Referendum

A day ahead of UK PM Theresa May's timeline for submitting Article 50 and beginning formal Brexiut procedures, Scottish parliament just voted 69 to 59 in facor of a second Scottish independence referendum. While somewhat expected, cable is lagging on the news…

As AP reports, Scottish lawmakers have voted to seek a new referendum on independence, to be held within the next two years.

The Scottish parliament voted 69-59 to back First Minister Nicola Sturgeon's call to ask the British government for an independence vote.

Sturgeon says Scots must be given the chance to vote on their future before Britain leaves the European Union. British Prime Minister Theresa May plans to launch the U.K's two-year process to exit the EU on Wednesday by triggering Article 50 of the bloc's key treaty.

"Scotland's future should be in Scotland's hands," Sturgeon told lawmakers in the Edinburgh-based parliament.

Scottish voters rejected independence in a 2014 referendum that Sturgeon's Scottish National Party called a once-in-a-generation vote. But Sturgeon says Brexit has changed the situation dramatically.

She says there should be a new vote on independence between fall 2018 and spring 2019, when details of Britain's divorce terms with the bloc are clear.

Notably, May, whose government must approve the referendum for it to be legally binding, says the time is not right. She says all parts of the U.K. — England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland — must pull together to get the best-possible deal with the EU.

Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson agreed, saying Tuesday that Scots do not want "the division and rancor of another referendum campaign." It's unclear what could break the stalemate between Edinburgh and London.

Nicola Sturgeon's full statement following the passage of the vote is below.

Man with Texas Tango Blast gang ties gets 15 years in assault on pregnant girlfriend

Jacob Pauda, who gained national attention for his heavily-tattooed mugshot, was sentenced Monday to 15 years in prison at the end of a weeklong bench trial before Judge John McClendon in the 137th District Court.

McClendon found Pauda, 31, guilty on Wednesday of a third-degree felony count of domestic assault with a prior conviction. Third-degree felonies carry a punishment range of two to 10 years in prison. However, a previous conviction for a 2003 aggravated assault enhanced his punishment range to a second-degree felony, which carries two to 20 years in prison.

McClendon believed Pauda beat his pregnant girlfriend, Mercedes Ramirez, on Feb. 8, 2016, then threatened her with a knife. A deadly weapon finding in the case means Pauda will have to serve half of his sentence before he is eligible for parole.

Pauda’s attorney, Jesse Mendez, asked the court for a punishment on the lower end of the sentencing range. He said Ramirez, who signed an affidavit of non-prosecution, does not consider Pauda a threat to her or their children. The couple has remained in contact since his arrest and incarceration at the Lubbock County Detention Center and Ramirez said she was still in a relationship with Pauda.

“She loves Jacob,” he told McClendon.

Assistant District Attorney Laura Beth Fossett told McClendon that Pauda deserved the maximum sentence. She said Pauda’s actions that night and his criminal history showed he is a violent man who’s not only a threat to his own family but to the community as well.

She said the bruises Ramirez suffered detailed an aggressive assault that was also aimed at his unborn child.

“You don’t treat your family this way,” she said. “You don’t treat the mother of your children this way”

She showed McClendon a picture of a tattoo on Pauda’s stomach that read “Certified Gangsta.”

“He wants you to know who he is,” she told McClendon. “Mission accomplished.”

Pauda’s tattoos, which covered his his entire body, scalp and legs, were a prominent part of the the state’s case during the punishment phase of the trial.

An investigator with the Lubbock County Sheriff’s Office gang unit testified that Pauda was a member of the Texas Tango Blast prison gang. He pointed out a majority of Pauda’s tattoos indicated affiliation with the gang.

However, in a pre-sentencing report, Pauda stated he was no longer a part of the the gang.

Before handing down the punishment, McClendon told Pauda he could not ignore his criminal history, particularly the aggravated assault conviction, when he decided his punishment.

“What I do see in regards to this is that it’s happened at least twice,” he said. “You’ve obviously had other issues that had brought you before this court and other courts. I can’t look past that.”

Mendez said after the trial that his client was remorseful and will write a letter of apology.

Mendez’s defense during the guilt-innocence phase of the trial focused on the allegation that Pauda chased Ramirez with a knife during his assault.

Ramirez told the court Pauda flew into a rage after an acquaintance teased him that she was being unfaithful to him.

On Tuesday, the court heard Ramirez’s desperate 911 call during which she told the dispatcher Pauda was intoxicated and took cocaine that night. A police report states she told investigators Pauda chased her with a butcher knife after beating her and kicking her in the stomach.

However, in court, Ramirez recounted Pauda’s attack that night but could not recall whether Pauda threatened her with a knife. She said she couldn’t recall if her statements to detectives and prosecutors included an allegation that Pauda pulled a knife on her.

Prosecutors played a jail phone conversation between the couple in which Ramirez told Pauda she would help him out with the case, however the two began bickering and Pauda warned Ramirez that the call was recorded.

“You pulled a ———- knife on me,” Ramirez could be heard telling Pauda.

“Mercedes, I never pulled a knife on you,” said Pauda. “Are you serious?”

“Whatever,” she said.

“I didn’t do that,” he said.

“Because you don’t remember,” she replied.

Fossett said after the trial she believes McClendon’s punishment showed he took domestic assault cases seriously.

She said her office often faces the challenge of victims of domestic assault withdrawing from a case, but her office will continue prosecuting a case because a law was broken…

FAKE NEWS: Congresswoman Interviewed “Live” By CNN and MSNBC – At Same Time

Failing media caught in another massive lie

CNN and MSNBC were caught in a stark example of fake news during recent interviews of Congresswoman Jackie Speier (D-C.A.) that were supposedly airing “live” – at the same exact time.

An observant television viewer noticed the anomaly and alerted media watchdog, Mark Dice, who broke the story in his latest report.

Dice correlated this latest faux pas by the failing corporate media machine to similar recent incidents that included CNN staging a ‘long-distance’ live interview conducted with both subjects in the same parking lot, and also a staged ‘crime scene’ erected by ABC News operatives for a report on Good Morning America, which was nothing more than a small length of caution tape strung between camera stands.

Compounding the absurdity of the situation was the fact that Speier was appearing on both shows to perpetuate a lie of massive proportions – the Russia-Trump narrative, which defies logic and was veritably created out of thin air – and also denounce Congressman Devin Nunes (R-C.A.) for coming forward with information that supports President Trump’s assertion that he and his transition team were spied upon by the Obama administration.

“The mainstream media has gotten away with their trickery, lies, and propaganda for far too long,” concluded Dice. “Now, with modern technology, we’re going to systematically expose them on a daily basis and pound more nails in the coffins of their careers.”

DICK CHENEY: ‘No question’ Russia meddled in the election, and it could be ‘an act of war’

In a wide-ranging speech at the Economic Times’ Global Business Summit, former US Vice President Dick Cheney spoke unequivocally about Russia’s meddling in the 2016 US presidential election.

Cheney cited a “rising number of threats” in the world that beyond national security, “even pose a threat to the globalization movements you’re here to talk about today.”

Then directly segueing into talking about Russian President Vladimir Putin, Cheney warned of Russia’s aggressive actions. “I think he has designs on the Baltics … We know he wanted Crimea, he took it,” said Cheney, who pointed to previous Russian cyber campaigns against Baltic states and their recent moves to nuclearize their European enclave of Kaliningrad.

On the subject of the 2016 election, Cheney said Russia attacked the US in a possible act of war.

“There’s no question that there was a very serious effort made by Mr. Putin and his government, his organization, to interfere in major ways with our basic fundamental democratic processes,” said Cheney. “In some quarters that could be considered an act of war.”

If Lawsuits Over Border Wall Successful, It Might Backfire Against Some Communist Agendas

Commies Panic: If Lawsuits Over Border Wall Are Successful, Govt Land Grabbing via Eminent Domain Would Be Effectively Outlawed by the Courts

Communists do not like private property rights. But if their lawsuits against the Border Wall were ever successful, the courts would be ruling in favor of private property rights BIG TIME which could prevent the US government from seizing private property in the future! This would interfere with the UN Agenda 21 as well, which has gained support from most communists around the world.

Under Gov. Jerry Brown, California has emerged as the state most determined to oppose the Trump administration’s immigration and border security policies.

A bill under consideration in the statehouse would make California the first “sanctuary state” in the nation, preventing state, county and municipal officials from cooperating with federal immigration agents trying to carry out detention and removal operations.

Earlier in March, two separate laws were proposed–one by San Francisco city supervisors and another by a Democratic state assemblyman–that would cut ties with any company that contracts to build the border wall ordered by President Donald Trump.

“We’re not going to bring stupid lawsuits or be running to the courthouse every day,” Brown said, suggesting a more measured approach than the one taken by some of California’s other leading Democratic politicians. Brown is constrained by the reality that California, like every other state that borders Mexico, takes a backseat to the federal government in setting border and immigration policy.

Hans von Spakovsky, a senior legal fellow at the conservative Heritage Foundation, says the question of federal supremacy in border enforcement is settled law.

“There are many, many cases where the Supreme Court has said the apex of the federal government’s power is at the border,” he told The Daily Caller News Foundation. States can go to court to challenge the construction of the wall, but “the lawsuits would be frivolous” and likely dismissed, von Spakovsky said.

Some advocacy groups are girding for a fight with the administration when it invokes eminent domain to take control of land along the border, especially in Texas, where large stretches along the Rio Grande are privately held. Legal nonprofit the, Texas Civil Right Project, has said it is drafting eminent domain defenses that can be used in multiple cases.

“This is not necessarily some barren wasteland,” Brooke Bischoff, an attorney with the Texas Civil Rights Project, told Quartz. “There are large communities; there are ancestral homes here.”

Von Spakovsky says in the case of the border wall, which is clearly a public use project, property owners won’t have much recourse other than to contest the compensation offered by the government for their land.

“This is the entire purpose of the eminent domain clause in the Fifth Amendment,” he said. “It’s the equivalent of the Interstate Highway System, but the border wall is more important because it has a national security function the Interstate Highway System doesn’t have.”

Two Software Engineers Arrested in Venezuela Over Bitcoin Mining Activities

Furthermore, the CICPC mentions both detained individuals face charges of stealing electricity.

The Venezuelan government has no love list for people engaging in bitcoin mining. Several arrests have been made over the past year. More recently, two software engineers found themselves in custody for mining bitcoin. Once again, these arrests are labeled as “stealing electricity”. Considering how the government subsidizes most of the electricity in the country, these claims are not entirely false either.

Once again, bitcoin miners find themselves in a pickle in Venezuela. The CICPC arrested two software engineers as a state company based in Lara. Both individuals are charged with computer crimes for mining bitcoin while using state-subsidized electricity. Moreover, two pieces of mining equipment have been confiscated as well. It is not the first time this happens, nor will it be the last.

Based on the information provided by El Impulso, the mining hardware in question consists of Antminer S3 models. These are older generations of bitcoin mining hardware, which draw significant amounts of electricity from the wall. Obtaining more recent versions of this hardware can be quite difficult in Venezuela, though. Bitcoin remains unregulated in the country, yet the government has cracked down on mining activities.

Venezuela Continues To Arrest Bitcoin Enthusiasts

To be more specific, two types of bitcoin activity are frowned upon in Venezuela. First of all, the mining business, which uses state-subsidized electricity. By using up this precious resource, more blackouts may occur across the entire country. For a region struggling with financial hardship, no access to electricity for extended periods is the last thing anyone needs. This does not necessarily mean people “steal” electricity, although it can be classified as such.

Secondly, there is the topic of buying and selling bitcoin mining equipment. Several people have been arrested for engaging in this activity. Although this is not an illegal act, the government wants nothing to do with bitcoin activities in general. They feel people sell bitcoin miners as a way to evade capital controls in Venezuela. So far, those claims have never been proven, though.

Furthermore, the CICPC mentions both detained individuals face charges of stealing electricity. They also used the company’s internet bandwidth to conduct their mining operations. Using state assets for bitcoin mining is frowned upon in the country and that situation will not change anytime soon. Moreover, it is believed both men installed malware on company computers. This has nothing to do with bitcoin mining, though, as they were allegedly after confidential information.

After Maryland Teen's Rape, Mass. Mayor Reveals the 'Tremendous Strain' Immigration Has on Her Town

On March 16, the reported rape of a 14-year-old Maryland girl by two older, undocumented students during school hours stunned Americans across the country.

While the appalling accusations have turned the nation’s eyes toward the city of Rockville, it seems that Maryland is not the only state reeling from the effects of illegal immigration.

On Saturday, Lynn (MA) Mayor Judith Flanagan Kennedy told Fox News’ Judge Jeanine Pirro that her city has also experienced a significant influx of undocumented immigrants, one that is causing a “tremendous strain” on her budget, school system, and community.

Russians In Israel Advised Not To Say ‘Schmuck’ Or Get Drunk

http://www.breitbart.com/jerusalem/2017/03/27/russians-in-israel-advised-not-to-say-schmuck-or-get-drunk/

Russian tourists visiting Israel have been asked to refrain from using slurs like schmuck and getting drunk, a new directive from the country’s foreign ministry states.

The consular department’s guidelines claims that Israelis are (((sensitive))) towards criticism directed at their country and to the use of offensive Yiddish and Arabic terms including putz (Yiddish for “fool”) and sharmuta (Arabic for “prostitute.”) Russian travelers have been instructed to refrain from using the Russian word jid, a derogatory term for Jews, since “it is unacceptable to any Jew, even if he does not understand Russian.”

Russian nationals have also been told not to drink in excess while in Israel and wander the streets while under the influence of alcohol. Tourists should also maintain a distance of half a meter from locals.

Russians should also not be taken aback when they overhear Russian swearwords spoken in Israel, even by non-Russian speakers, as they have become part of the vernacular since the beginning of the 20th century, the guidelines said.

The Russian Foreign Ministry’s mission is to encourage tourists to respect local customs at any given destination. While in Turkey, Russian tourists are warned against making a V gesture with their fingers since it is the symbol of Kurdish nationalism. While in Thailand they are told to avoid “petting Thais’ heads.” In Canada and France, they are advised against making jokes about homosexuals or other “man jokes.” And on visits to Kenya, the guidelines state that Russians should think twice before making comparisons between Kenyans and monkeys. In Spain, Russians should say “hello” to strangers in elevators and shops.

Alex Tenzer, a Russian communications expert, said he hoped Israel would follow suit and publish similar guidelines for Israeli tourists abroad.

House Committee Passes Bill To "Audit The Fed"

The Republican-controlled Committee on Oversight and Government Reform approved a bill earlier today to allow for a congressional audit of the Federal Reserve's monetary policy, a proposal Fed policymakers have opposed and likely faces a difficult path to final approval in the Senate. Under the bill, the Fed’s monetary policy deliberations could be subject

to outside review by the Government Accountability Office.

While similar bills have garnered some support from Democrats in the past, they uniformly spoke against the current proposal during a meeting of the House of Representatives suggesting the current iteration would face stronger resistance from an increasingly polarized environment in Washington D.C..

The House previously passed similar versions of this legislation twice before in 2012 and 2014, with dozens of Democrats joining nearly unanimous Republican support. That said, those bills both died in the Senate and likely would have faced a Presidential veto from Obama had they survived anyway.

That said, Trump expressed interest in passing such legislation multiple times during the 2016 campaign cycle which means the 3rd time might just be the charm for Republicans.

And while proponents of the bill argue that the Fed wields too much power over the U.S. economy with minimal oversight, opponents assert that Fed decisions should be informed purely by economic indicators and completely insulated from "political pressure"…and we presume those same opponents would argue that Yellen's decision to wait until just after the conclusion of the 2016 Presidential election to start hiking rates had absolutely nothing to do with politics. Per Reuters:

Proponents of the measure argue that the Fed is too powerful and lacks sufficient oversight for its interest rate decisions. But Fed officials from Yellen on down, as well as other critics, have warned that such a policy could subject the Fed to undue political pressure and discourage it from taking unpopular steps for the good of the overall economy.

"We should not in any way hinder their independence," said Representative Carolyn Maloney, a New York Democrat, echoing the sentiment of Fed policymakers who say they could come under political pressure to avoid making unpopular decisions such as raising interest rates to slow growth and control inflation.

The next step for the bill would be a floor vote by the entire House, where Republicans hold a solid majority, followed by a Senate vote that would be much more difficult given Republcans' narrow lead.

People are switching to Vid.Me - An alternative to YouTube

Popular YouTube users Styxhexenhammer666 and ThuleanPerspective, among many other gaming content creators and various uploaders, are beginning the slow process of abandoning YouTube and switching to a competitor, Vid.Me

This is due to all the recent controversies caused by YouTube such as Restricted Mode, where almost all videos with non-leftist content/opinions have are being blocked, unless you have a YouTube account and you turn that option off. New youtube users such as kids who don't have an account will therefore only get to watch videos with leftist propaganda in it, unless they make an account. That option also makes the discovery of politically incorrect videos harder, as only people with an account and with Restricted Mode turned Off will be able to find such videos and make them popular.

Will the switch to an alternative platform work? This is the only chance to abandon the ship and show YouTube that this is too much. If you have a YouTube channel consider switching to Vid.Me. Show YouTube that they can lose power.

Oh My – President Obama’s Own Defense Deputy Admits Obama White House Spied on Candidate/President-E

This is stunningly interesting and hopefully will be picked up by MSM and congressional investigators.

Sometimes when a person is deep inside an echo-chamber of like-minded ideologues, they might not realize what they’re saying is rather revealing to those on the outside. That’s the set up for former Obama administration official Evelyn Farkas (Deputy Asst. Secretary of Defense) appearing on MSNBC and admitting first hand knowledge the Obama administration spied on candidate and president-elect Donald Trump’s transition team to gather “intelligence” for political use.

It would appear Ms. Farkas was so caught up in the discussion, she didn’t quite realize the significant admissions she was making about the Obama administration spying on Donald Trump’s team and generating classified intelligence for Ms. Farkas (and others) to spread to Capitol Hill politicians. MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski recognized the ‘oh-snap’ admission and tried to play it off,… but by then it was too late.

I was urging my former colleagues, and, and frankly speaking the people on the Hill [Democrat politicians], it was more actually aimed at telling the Hill people, get as much information as you can – get as much intelligence as you can – before President Obama leaves the administration.

Because I had a fear that somehow that information would disappear with the senior [Obama] people who left; so it would be hidden away in the bureaucracy, um, that the Trump folks – if they found out HOW we knew what we knew about their, the Trump staff, dealing with Russiansthat they would try to compromise those sources and methods; meaning we no longer have access to that intelligence.

So I became very worried because not enough was coming out into the open and I knew that there was more. We have very good intelligence on Russia; so then I had talked to some of my former colleagues and I knew that they were also trying to help get information to [Democrat politicians].

But wait, it didn’t just stop there. It gets worse – or better, depending on your position.

With the help of MSNBC, simultaneous to her admission of first-hand specific knowledge of the administration spying on Mr. Trump, Ms. Evelyn Farkas outs herself as the key source for a New York Times report which discussed President Obama officials leaking classified information to media.

Considerable irony jumps to the forefront when you recognize, the New York Times tried to protect Evelyn Farkas as the source of their reporting by stating:

“More than a half-dozen current and former officials described various aspects of the effort to preserve and distribute the intelligence, and some said they were speaking to draw attention to the material and ensure proper investigation by Congress. All spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were discussing classified information, nearly all of which remains secret.”D’oh.

Whoopsie.

Looks like Devin Nunes and the House Intelligence Committee has a new person to bring in for testimony. A positive development because at this rate the media leakers will out themselves without much need for investigation.

I wonder what the criminal penalties are for having access to intelligence and sharing it with Democrat politicians [“The Hill People”].

Question #1:

Who, specifically, are these “Hill People” you speak of Mrs. Farkas?

Massachusetts Sheriff: Sanctuary Cities Put American Lives At Risk, Leaders Should Be Arrested

A Massachusetts law enforcement official testifying before Congress on Tuesday called for leaders of sanctuary cities to be arrested.

Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson told the House Subcommittee on Illegal Immigration that sanctuary cities “have become magnets for illegal aliens, some of which have violent criminal records.”

“If these sanctuary cities are going to harbor and conceal criminal illegal aliens from ICE, which is in direct violation of Title 8 of the U.S. Code, federal arrest warrants should be issued for their elected officials,” Hodgson said. “Our citizens would be safer if we never stopped enforcing immigration law and if we never formed or turned a blind eye toward sanctuary cities.”

He also took aim at a Massachusetts legislator who passed along rumors of a planned ICE raid in Brockton on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Rep. Michelle DuBois, D-Brockton, warned her constituents in a Facebook post “if you are undocumented don’t go out on the street. If there is a knock on the door of your house and you don’t know who it is, don’t open the door.”

Hodgson called her actions “outrageous.”

“This is the most outrageous, outrageous example of what is going on across the United States that is undermining my job and every other law enforcement officer in the United States,” he said.

DuBois said the rumor of the ICE raid was wide-spread in Brockton. “Passing information along that is already all-over the community, not only lets the people I represent know what is happening, it lets ICE know that everyone in Brockton is aware of ICE’s planned raid (if there was one),” she said. “Having ICE know that this rumor is ramped allows them to change the date if they feel the public’s knowledge of the raid will bring them into danger.”

ICE said it does not release information regarding future operations and does not conduct random sweeps, checkpoints or raids.

“Any person who actively incites panic or fear of law enforcement is doing a disservice to the community, endangering public safety and the very people they claim to support and represent,” ICE spokesman Shawn Neudauer said.

Sheriff Hodgson said there is no bigger threat to public safety than illegal immigration. He said his correctional officers have become de facto ICE agents and are able to perform all immigration-related actions.

Is the Corrupt DNC Staff About to Be Purged?

Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez has launched a major overhaul of the party's organization, which has been stung by recent crises — and the DNC has requested resignation letters from all current staffers.

Party staff routinely see major turnover with a new boss and they had been alerted to expect such a move. However, the mass resignation letters will give Perez a chance to completely remake the DNC's headquarters from scratch. Staffing had already reached unusual lows following a round of post-election layoffs in December.

Immediately after Perez's selection as party chairman in late February, an adviser to outgoing DNC Interim Chair Donna Brazile, Leah Daughtry, asked every employee to submit a letter of resignation dated April 15, according to multiple sources familiar with the party's internal workings.

A committee advising Perez on his transition is now interviewing staff and others as part of a top-to-bottom review process to decide not only who will stay and who will go, but how the party should be structured in the future.

Major staffing and organizational changes will be announced in coming weeks, one aide said.

"This is longstanding precedent at the DNC and has happened during multiple Chair transitions," said DNC spokeswoman Xochitl Hinojosa. "The process was started before the election of the new Chair. From the beginning, Tom has been adamant that we structure the DNC for future campaigns. Current and future DNC staff will be integral to that effort. Over the last few months, the DNC staff has done incredible work under immense pressure to hold Trump accountable."

Perez is the party's third leader in the past year, which was one of its most difficult on record.

It began with accusations that the DNC favored Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary, continued with the wrenching exposure of hacked emails and the abrupt resignation of former chair, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and concluded with the shocking defeat of its presidential nominee and a divisive race for the new party chairman.

The grueling experience, which followed years in which many Democrats felt the Obama White House ignored the party organization, has left the DNC with a crisis of confidence and competence.

Communist Pope Francis: ‘Democracy Is Egotism’

RELATED: >>>/realnews/658

The European Union “risks dying” without a “new vision“, Pope Francis has claimed, while launching a bitter assault on the value of democracy, declaring it “a form of egotism“.

In an address to European leaders on Friday, the Pope said the European Union faced a “vacuum of values” and was losing its “sense of direction” and called for a “stronger, consolidated Europe” against the rising tide of democratic populist movements.

The extreme comments delivered by the pontiff have drawn the ire of pro-democracy Catholics, who claim the pontiff is working towards calling for the reintroduction of communism to Europe.

The pontiff contrasted socialist solidarity, which draws us “closer to our neighbors,” with democratic populism, which is “the fruit of an egotism that hems people in and prevents them from overcoming and ‘looking beyond’ their own narrow vision.”

As a number of European countries prepare for important national elections pitting populist leaders against establishment, left-leaning parties, the Pope took an unusually overt stand in favor of a socialist vision of the future of the region – and the world.

“There is a need to start thinking once again as Europeans,” Francis said, “so as to avert the opposite dangers of a dreary uniformity or the triumph of particularisms.”

“Politics needs this kind of leadership, which avoids appealing to emotions to gain consent, but instead, in a spirit of solidarity and subsidiarity, devises policies that can make the Union as a whole develop harmoniously,” he added.

This union will only be lasting and successful if the common will of Europe “proves more powerful than the will of individual nations,” Francis said, quoting the Prime Minister of Luxembourg.

The pontiff’s comments come days after he controversially became the first Pope in history to hold Islamic prayers and Quruan recitals inside the Vatican.

Christians have pointed out that the pope’s decision to declare the Bible and the Quran one and the same and allow Islamic prayer in the Vatican directly contradicts Biblical teaching:

Trump To Wait Until Obamacare Fully Implodes Before Reforming Healthcare

RELATED: >>>/realnews/588 (http://archive.is/Gg8kd)

President Trump called me on my cellphone Friday afternoon at 3:31 p.m. At first I thought it was a reader with a complaint since it was a blocked number.

Instead, it was the president calling from the Oval Office. His voice was even, his tone muted. He did not bury the lead.

“Hello, Bob,” Trump began. “So, we just pulled it.”

Trump was speaking, of course, of the Republican plan to overhaul the Affordable Care Act, a plan that had been languishing for days amid unrest throughout the party as the president and his allies courted members and pushed for a vote.

Before I could ask a question, Trump plunged into his explanation of the politics of deciding to call off a vote on a bill he had been touting.

The Democrats, he said, were to blame.

“We couldn’t get one Democratic vote, and we were a little bit shy, very little, but it was still a little bit shy, so we pulled it,” Trump said.

Trump said he would not put the bill on the floor in the coming weeks. He is willing to wait and watch the current law continue and, in his view, encounter problems.

“As you know, I’ve been saying for years that the best thing is to let Obamacare explode and then go make a deal with the Democrats and have one unified deal. And they will come to us; we won’t have to come to them,” he said. “After Obamacare explodes.”

“The beauty,” Trump continued, “is that they own Obamacare. So when it explodes, they come to us, and we make one beautiful deal for the people.”

Good! Trump to Rescind Obama Regime 'Climate Orders' with EO on Energy Independence

RELATED: >>>/goodnews/93

President Donald Trump will roll out a new executive order on Tuesday that eliminates several Obama-era climate change orders in favor of policies centered on energy independence.

A senior administration official said that the coming EO will review some and take other Obama executive orders “off the books immediately to the extent we can,” while also looking forward to providing a “beginning framework for a strategy on energy.” Under the new order, each executive department and agency in the U.S. government will be responsible for identifying impediments to energy production.

Energy policy under the order will stay in line with the President’s desire for U.S. energy independence and return the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to its core mission.

Former President Obama’s Clean Power Plan, which has been tied up in the courts, will be reviewed and possibly find itself on the chopping block in Trump’s new order. There is not a time frame for review of the Clean Power Plan, but the official predicted that there would be court challenges regarding that aspect of the EO. The new rule from the Clean Air Act will also be reviewed.

The Interior Department-imposed coal moratorium will also be rescinded, according to the official.

The official listed Obama regime communist memorandums, including the 2013 Climate Action Plan, among what will be rescinded, “…that obviously will be going away.” A total of about six executive orders and memorandums will be rescinded.

The official stated that there would be policies related to the National Environmental Policy Act. Guidance on climate change published by the Council on Environmental Quality last August will be rescinded. The senior administration official added that there would be language on the “social cost of greenhouse gases.” Carbon, methane, and nitrous oxide were specifically mentioned.

“The previous Administration put out its own estimates, not in a very transparent fashion, in a fashion that we believe violates the longstanding OMB policies.” Those will no longer stand as a result, the official added. Regulations related to methane production at EPA and the Bureau of Land Management will be reviewed to see if they “reflect the policy priority that’s outlined at the beginning of the order.”

The Administration is looking at all energy options including nuclear, renewables, clean coal, natural gas, “all of it,” the official said.

NBC News: Hillary's State Department Complicit In Helping Cover Up Elite Pedophile Rings

An NBC news report claims that Hillary Clinton, while secretary of state, shut down an investigation into an elite pedophile ring in State Department ranks in order to avoid scandal and protect the careers of high ranking officials and an ambassador.

The NBC investigation was broadcast at a time when they were a real news organization rather than a branch of the Democratic Party’s PR department, and provided internal State Department memos to back up claims of a massive Hillary Clinton elite pedophile ring cover-up.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HadGh0LcXxs

“Serious allegations concerning the State Department,” the NBC anchor announced, before launching into the disturbing details that mainstream media would be unable to report on in 2017.

“According to internal State Department memos the agency might have called off or intervened into investigations into possibly illegal, inappropriate behavior within it’s ranks allegedly to protect jobs and avoid scandals.

“This concerns a time when Hillary Clinton was secretary of state.”

“There is an old saying in Washington that the cover-up is worse than the crime. But in this case both parts of it are disturbing,” Chuck Todd continued.

“Allegations of prostitution and pedophilia, and allegations that those crimes were somehow covered up or not looked into. So the State Department this morning is having to respond to those claims, and those investigations involve misconduct by State Department officials, including an Ambassador and security agents attached to then secretary of state, Hillary Clinton.

“The allegations are that these investigations were whitewashed, quashed altogether, and that those orders came from high up.”

“NBC has obtained documents relating to ongoing investigations into some disturbing allegations involving State Department personnel and at least one ambassador. A State Department memo says, quote, “the Ambassador routinely ditched his protective security detail in order to solicit sexual favors from both prostitutes and minor children.

“The memo also says a top State Department official directed State Department investigators to “cease the investigation” into the ambassador’s conduct.” It’s just one of what another document describes as “several examples of undue influence” from top State Department officials.”

In contrast to Clinton’s cover-up, President Trump has announced a federal investigation into the elite pedophile scandal involving human trafficking earlier this month and promised to help put an end to the “horrific, really horrific crimes taking place.”

The president held a short, dramatic press conference after meeting with human trafficking experts to announce that he will direct “the Department of Justice, the Department of Homeland Security and other federal agencies” to devote more resources and personnel to the investigation.

“It has been much more focused over the last four weeks, I can tell you that.”

Trump Pushed FBI to Nab Israeli-American Suspect in Bomb Threats

The Jewish Israeli-American arrested this week on suspicion of making a host of bomb threats on Jewish institutions worldwide has been making such cyberattacks for two years, but only recently was his capture given high priority, according to police sources. 

The sources attributed the turnabout to pressure from United States President Donald Trump. A few weeks ago, after Trump announced that the FBI would do everything in its power to catch the perpetrator, the agency sent 12 investigators from its cybercrime unit to Israel to assist the Israeli investigation.

Alex Jones: 'Forget Comet Ping Pong, Time To Focus On Confirmed Elite Pedo Rings'

Alex Jones caused a huge controversy last week when he broadcast a statement publicly apologizing to the owner of Comet Ping Pong pizzeria James Alefantis, a distanced himself from the Pizzagate conspiracy theories.

The Infowars host's comments hit a raw nerve with many dedicated researchers with a massive backlash following his statements branding Jones as a "shill."

Alefantis and his Washington D.C. pizza restaurant have been at the center of the Pizzagate scandal since it broke last year, due to connections made regarding the food-based codewords that seem to describe acts of pedophilia in Hillary Clinton's campaign chair John Podesta's emails, that were leaked by WikiLeaks.

Following the backlash of his statement, Jones has responded explaining exactly why he and Infowars have distanced themselves from Pizzagate.

In his latest video upload, he explains why he believes that the Pizzagate theory, in parts, is a "manufactured controversy" by the mainstream media, "designed to discredit those researching and exposing the epidemic across the world of powerful Elites and others of abusing and exploiting children".

Jones's theory is that the MSM has tried to direct focus onto the Comet Ping Pong restaurant in Washington D.C., which they believe to be a dead end, whilst distracting people's attention away from the real issue that is Elite pedophilia in the highest echelons of society and world politics.

If he's right, and Comet Ping Pong is a dead end, then it would totally discredit any theories on Pizzagate, and therefore, what it has now become - Pedogate.

Despite initial impressions from his apology statement, it seems that Jones is still intent on taking down Pedogate, and names the Clintons in connection with Elite pedophilia multiple times during his latest rant.

He could be right - Pizzagate has been manipulated by paid shills on social media and forums for a while now, and it's very likely that it could have been nudged off track to divert attention away from the real problem and make the genuine researchers appear as "wild conspiracy theorists"

Sword-carrying Joker arrested in Virginia

The Joker is behind bars. It’s a storyline that could be straight out of the comic books.

Yet in Winchester, Virginia, it's a true story.

Local police said they arrested a man dressed like the famous comic book villain – decked out in a cape and carrying a sword.

Police spokesperson Jennifer Hall said the department received several 911 calls Friday afternoon reporting a man made up as Batman’s nemesis.

Thirty-one-year-old Jeremy Putman was arrested and charged with wearing a mask in public, a felony in the state of Virginia that can result in a year in jail.

It wasn’t immediately clear whether Putman has a lawyer.

Dr. Phil Exposes Elite Pedophile Ring On Mainstream TV

RELATED: >>528798

It’s been decried as ‘fake news’ for far too long at the expense of putting our children at risk. Finally, some in the mainstream are catching on to one of the plagues of Washington today – the DC pedophile rings. Media personality Dr. Phil conducted an interview with a former child sex slave under these pedophile rings, and disturbing doesn’t even begin to describe her story. Read on with caution.

In the following video, Right Wing News looks at the utterly disgusting and horrifying reality that these pedophile rings force upon children. The victim, Kendall, in addition to recounting the countless abuses perpetrated upon her, specifically mentions being passed around groups of rich and prominent men as her earliest memories. Even more shocking, her parents had sold her to the ring at birth, and she definitely isn’t the only one.

When will the public be made aware of this problem so the corrupting and perverted influence of these pedophiles can be wiped out once and for all?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UhPP98THLKY

Dr. Phil exposed the crimes of an elite government pedophile ring to millions of viewers across the United States on Tuesday, after interviewing a former child sex slave called ‘Kendall’.

Kendall, who was repeatedly sexually abused as a young child, detailed her life growing up as a sex slave to an elite pedophile ring to a stunned audience.

As more and more Americans are beginning to wake up to the fact that high-level government officials routinely sexually abuse children, Dr. Phil helped bring the issue to the attention of an even bigger audience.

Thefreethoughtproject.com reports: https://archive.fo/Lw1zL

Kendall explains that she was born to be a sex slave, as her parents intentionally had her for the trafficker she calls her “owner.” Kendall says that her parents sold her at birth to an elite pedophile ring that serviced some of the world’s power elite, describing her first memories as being passed around groups of rich and prominent men and women for them to “take turns” with her for sadistic sexual pleasure.

Making her first public appearance after escaping from the man she calls her “owner,” Kendall describes being forced to participate in actions that shock the conscience. She explains that she was forced to rape children as young as 5- years-old, and even admits to having been forced to kill a baby by the human trafficker she describes as her “owner.”

Kendall says that she can tell the difference between kids born into sexual slavery and ones that have been kidnapped, as the ones born into it are more docile and less upset as it is the only reality they have ever known.

When Dr. Phil asks how old she thinks she was when she was first raped, Kendall explains that it was “before I could talk – I was used to it by the time I was 2.”

She says she doesn’t even know her actual age, as she has been a sex slave her entire life, being trafficked around the globe to be molested and raped by the societal elites – including high ranking law enforcement official, major sports franchise owners and even high level U.S. politicians.

Podesta Was Board Member Of Firms Linked To Russian Investors

RELATED: >>>/totalnews/129

Rep. Louie Gohmert, an outspoken House Republican from Texas, is calling for a congressional investigation of John Podesta’s role with Rusnano, a state-run company founded by Russian President Vladimir Putin, The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group has learned.

Podesta — Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign chairman and former President Bill Clinton’s White House chief of staff — first made contact with the Russian firm in 2011, when he joined the boards and executive committees of three related entities: Boston-based Joule Unlimited; Rotterdam-based Joule Global Holdings; Joule Global Stichting, the company’s controlling interest. All are high-tech renewable energy enterprises.

Three months after Podesta’s arrival, Joule Unlimited accepted a 1 billion ruble investment from Rusnano, amounting to $35 million in U.S. currency. The firm also awarded a Joule board seat in February 2012 to Anatoly Chubais, Rusnano’s CEO, who has been depicted as a corrupt figure.

Podesta has attempted to downplay his relationship with Joule and Rusnano, but it could come to haunt him.

One potential legal problem for him relates to the time he joined former President Barack Obama’s White House staff in 2014 as a senior counselor and failed to reveal his 2011 Joule stock vesting agreement in his government financial disclosure form.

Further, he failed to disclose 75,000 common shares of Joule stock he received, as disclosed in a WikiLeaks email.

After Podesta began working at the White House, his lawyer indicated in a Jan. 6, 2014 email that he had not yet finished the legal work on the private transfer of the stock to a family-owned entity called Leonido Holdings, LLC.

Gohmert’s call for an examination of Podesta’s Russian ties comes as Washington is in the grips of a set of allegations about Russian ties to President Donald Trump and his aides, as well as charges of Russian influence during the presidential election.

Gohmert is troubled about the Podesta-Russia connection, telling TheDCNF, “this certainly needs to be reviewed to see if there really is something nefarious going on with these activities.” Gohmert sits on the House Judiciary Committee and is vice chair of its subcommittee on crime, terrorism and homeland security.

The Podesta-Russia connection also could rekindle a new round of questions about Clinton relationships with foreign figures — in this case, Chubais.

Chubais, Russia’s deputy prime minister in the 1990s, owed his personal fortunes to Bill Clinton, who embraced him as a “reformer” in former President Boris Yeltsin’s government. Clinton’s ally instead created a new generation of tycoons who today rule Russia.

Podesta’s role at Joule was largely unknown until last year when the nonprofit Government Accountability Institute (GAI) published a highly-detailed report on Russian ties to Podesta and the Clintons.

An ongoing federal lawsuit, Neas Ltd, v. Rusnano, which is now before the U.S. District Court for Northern California, suggests Podesta and others at Joule may have unwittingly assisted Rusnano in a scheme hatched to move billions of weak rubles into valuable U.S. dollars by parking them as “investments” in high-tech companies in Boston and in Silicon Valley.

A deposition by Ilya Ponomarev, an architect of Russia’s innovation enterprises and the former chairman of innovations subcommittee in the Russian Parliament, shed light on Rusnano’s plans in the United States. He says its primary objective “was the transformation of Rusnano from a state-owned corporation to an enterprise suitable for operations in the United States.” Ponomarev now lives in exile in the United States.

Shortly after then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton pursued her “reset” with Russia, state-owned Russian companies began targeting American companies in Boston and Silicon Valley as investment opportunities.

Good! Mississippi Bans Sanctuary Cities

Mississippi has become the first state to comprehensively ban sanctuary cities, ensuring that no local governments have the ability to illegally refuse to help federal government enforce immigration laws.

Governor Phil Bryant signed Senate Bill 2710 into law Monday morning, which will prohibit towns, counties, or universities from “purposefully defying federal immigration laws.”

“Taxpayers expect their state and its political subdivisions to abide by federal immigration laws,” Gov. Bryant said after final passage by the legislature.

“We should make sure no local governments or state entities have the ability to break our laws, creating jurisdictions of amnesty for illegal aliens,” Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves said.

WLOX News reports: https://archive.fo/Ltulr

Sponsored by Sen. Sean Tindell, R-Gulfport, the bill passed the Senate in a comfortable 32-16 vote. The House vote also passed easily, 76-41.

The new law means a city ordinance in Jackson put in place to prevent racial and ethnic profiling is now null and void. Part of that ordinance stated that police officers couldn’t ask for immigration status.

“It had a beneficial effect on the city of Jackson because other cities go out of their way for law-enforcement agencies to harass immigrants, harass brown people,” noted Mississippi Immigrant Rights Alliance Director Bill Chandler.

Chandler went on to say he didn’t think there was ever a threat of any city in the state becoming a sanctuary city.

Associated Press report: https://archive.fo/oX8Ya

The Trump administration is continuing its tough talk against sanctuary cities, which shelter people living in the country illegally by refusing to help the federal government enforce immigration laws.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions says he is “urging states and local jurisdictions to comply with these federal laws.”

He says the Justice Department will require compliance with immigration laws in order for the cities to receive grants through the Office of Justice Programs. The Obama administration had a similar policy in place.

President Trump had said during the campaign that he would “defund” sanctuary cities by taking away their federal funding.

Sanctuary cities include New York, Chicago and Los Angeles, as well as many smaller municipalities.

Vaccination Detoxification: How to Remove Heavy Metals and Other Vaccine Toxins

If you choose to vaccinate (or believe you have no choice), it's time to detoxify. This is not an article intended to debate the efficacy of vaccinations, but merely to address the toxicity from vaccinations and advise on elimination of the toxins.

Regardless of what your position on vaccinations is, any rational person cannot deny that the ingredients in vaccines are toxic. In fact, almost every single ingredient in any immunization is toxic to the human body. Besides the vitamins and minerals, nobody in their right mind would drink a concoction with any one or combination of most of the vaccine ingredients (and those vitamins and minerals they add are toxic, too). Most vaccinations are directly injected into our bodies, allowing the ingredients to directly enter the bloodstream, which rationally, seems like an even more dangerous approach.

Vaccine ingredients (adjuvants and preservatives) and substances used in the manufacturing process, including vaccine-production media that are present only in trace quantities, include: sucrose, fructose, dextrose, potassium phosphate, FD&C Yellow #6, aluminum lake dye, fetal bovine serum, sodium bicarbonate, monosodium glutamate, aluminum hydroxide, benzethonium chloride, lactose, aluminum potassium sulfate, peptone, bovine extract, formaldehyde, thimerosal, ammonium sulfate, formaldehyde, glutaraldehyde, bovine extract), calf serum, aluminum phosphate, aluminum hydroxphosphate sulfate, and ethanol. Vaccinations also contain many inorganic minerals, vitamins, amino acids, salts, and sugars.

Much of the vaccine material will not leave the body without assistance, especially with a typical modern lifestyle and diet.

Eat Well

The goal in order to detoxify from vaccinations is to flush the body of toxins, including heavy metals. There are a few good supplements available for chelation, but it can also be done with the right foods. Along with a healthy diet, the best ingredients for a natural heavy metal chelation regimen are chlorella, cilantro, citrus peels, spirulina, and garlic.

Most vegetables have some chelation properties, and eating combinations of vegetables increases their ability to chelate exponentially (this is true for all the health benefits). Make salads with more than ten different vegetables with lots of cilantro, avocado, and garlic every day. Avoid sugar, and avoid any and all refined, processed, manufactured foods.

Fix the Immune System

Sugars are present in vaccines, and sugars suppress the immune system. Sugars also feed parasites, viruses (indirectly), fungus, bacteria, and any other little creature that wants to harm us. These refined sugars travel through the bloodstream to wherever infection can be fed. As mentioned, lots of garlic is recommended, as well as the following supplements: oil of oregano, Echinacea, goldenseal, and goldthread. These supplements, especially when used in conjunction with each other, will help purify the blood, remove toxins, and keep any infectious agent at bay, all while helping to repair the immune system.

In addition to those supplements, a B vitamin complex is recommended for a few weeks after immunizing. Formaldehydes, and metals like mercury and aluminum make assimilating B vitamins more difficult. Until the heavy metals are removed, the solution is to take a high quality B complex supplement and to make sure the digestive system is as healthy as possible.

Drink Lots of fluids, exercise, and Hot & Cold Hydrotherapy

Cranberry stevia lemonade, exercising, and hot & cold hydrotherapy can also be a huge help with detoxifying the body. Regardless of their efficacy, the irony is, the healthier a person is, the less benefit they could possibly derive from vaccines. After this kind of detox (the level of detoxification required to remove the toxins from immunizations) your body will have true immunity for disease. For more on this regimen (cranberry lemonade recipe, hot & cold, supplements etc.), see How to Detoxify from Vaccinations. And checkout this nutrition formula recipe for a multivitamin that helps detox with chlorella, spirulina, and citrus peels.

Trudeau government to legalize marijuana by Canada Day 2018: reports

The Liberal government plans to announce legislation next month that will legalize recreational marijuana use nationally by Canada Day 2018, CBC News reported Sunday night.

The report, aired first on CBC’s flagship TV show, The National, said the government plans to introduce the legislation the week of April 10.

Another report, however, indicated the bill would be introduced on April 20, or 4/20, a symbolic date for marijuana users.

According to the CBC report, Ottawa will secure the country’s marijuana supply and license producers. The national age limit to purchase the drug will be set at 18, but provinces will be able to set it higher.

Provinces will also control price, along with how marijuana is bought and sold.

Also, Canadians who wish to grow their own marijuana would be limited to four plants per household.

The new rules generally follow the recommendations of a federal task force chaired by Anne McLellan, a former justice minister. The task force delivered a 106-page report in December with 80 recommendations.

Bill Blair, the former Toronto police chief who, as a Liberal MP, was Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s point person on the issue, briefed the Liberal caucus on the roll-out plan and planned legislation during meetings this weekend, CBC said.

Marijuana legalization was a high-profile campaign promise for Trudeau. Announcing the legislation in April would fulfill the promise the Liberal government made on April 20, 2016, to do so this spring.

Before the CBC’s report Sunday night, NDP leadership candidates debating in Montreal believed the Liberal plan to move ahead on marijuana legalization was up in smoke and tried to position themselves as the pro-pot party.

B.C. MP Peter Julian, one of four contenders in the race to replace Thomas Mulcair as NDP leader, said the federal government had failed to keep its 2015 campaign pledge to legalize and regulate pot for recreational purposes.

“I believe in legalization,” Julian said during the NDP’s second leadership debate.

Many young people opted to support the Liberals in the last election due to this promise, Manitoba MP Niki Ashton said.

The Liberals ran a cynical campaign in 2015, added Ontario MP Charlie Angus, suggesting the Liberals ticked all the right boxes, including on pot, with no intention of pursuing them.

Speaking with the Star’s editorial board in December, Trudeau stressed that marijuana remains illegal until legislation passes. The prime minister also condemned the rise of illegal storefront dispensaries, some of which have popped up in Toronto.

“People are right now breaking the law,” Trudeau said.

“We haven’t changed the laws. We haven’t legalized it yet. Yes, we got a clear mandate to do that. We’ve said we will. We’ve said we’re going to do it to protect our kids and to keep the money out of the pockets of criminals.”

Good! Popular Radio Talk Show Host Calls Out Subversive Communist Disney Propaganda

Dr. James Dobson, whose organizations, first Focus on the Family and now Family Talk radio, have brought his Christian, pro-family advice to tens of millions across America and around the world, is warning parents now about the subversive message that Disney is promoting.

Regarding the homosexual element in “Beauty and the Beast.”

In a website statement, he blasts the once-family-friendly company for its new agenda.

“I am appalled by Disney’s blatant, agenda-driven decision to introduce homosexuality into a children’s classic which originally did not include this theme,” he said.

“This decision is not surprising in an age where pro-homosexual propaganda is foisted upon every movie and even awarded and celebrated. It is a subtle yet clearly deliberate attempt to normalize homosexual behavior, starting with our children.

“The recent decision by Highlights Magazine to include gay couples in their children’s publications is another tragic example of this concerted effort. We all know it isn’t mere ‘happenstance,'” he wrote.

The Christian Science Monitor said, “A movie placing first at the box office two weeks in a row, as ‘Beauty and the Beast’ has done, is a relatively common feat now, but data shows that a movie ruling over the box office for months is a feat that was much easier to achieve in decades past.”

WND reported Disney long has promoted the “gay” agenda at its theme parks, featuring, for example, “gay days” that have moved the company far from founder Walt Disney, who “personally” fired Tommy Kirk, the actor of “Swiss Family Robinson” fame, over his homosexuality.

But since then, Disney used “out” singer Elton John’s music for “The Lion King” and more.

Now its move to promote being “gay” to children has prompted reactions including a petition calling for a boycott of Disney “until it stops promoting homosexuality in children’s movies and programming.”

Franklin Graham, CEO of Samaritan’s Purse and the Billy Graham Association, also has called for a boycott.

“Disney has aired a cartoon with same-sex couples kissing. It has also been announced that their new movie ‘Beauty and the Beast’ will feature a gay character in an attempt to normalize this lifestyle,” he wrote on Facebook.

“They’re trying to push the LGBT agenda into the hearts and minds of your children – watch out! Disney has the right to make their cartoons, it’s a free country. But as Christians we also have the right not to support their company. I hope Christians everywhere will say no to Disney.”

Graham noted that when he was a young boy he met Walt Disney, who was “very gracious to me, my father Billy Graham, and my younger brother when we visited.”

Walt Disney, he said, “would be shocked at what has happened to the company that he started,” Graham wrote.

He encouraged readers to “let Disney know how you feel.”

Russia boogeyman claim for 3/24/07: They are supplying the Taliban!!!!1111

http://archive.is/w7Z4s

>Gen Curtis Scaparrotti told lawmakers in Washington on Thursday that Moscow was "perhaps" supplying the extremist group.

On Friday, Zamir Kabulov, the Kremlin's special envoy in Afghanistan, said the allegation was "absolutely false".

Russia has previously said its limited contact with the Taliban is aimed at bringing them to the negotiating table.

>Moscow considers the Taliban a terrorist organisation, and backed the Northern Alliance against the group in the civil war of the 1990s.

But in December 2015 it did concede "the Taliban interest objectively coincides with ours" in Russia's fight against so-called Islamic State.

TL;DR some deep state generals accuse Russia of supplying the taliban because reasons and only the US is allowed to be interventionist.

Middle-Age US whites Dropping Like Flies

Middle-age white Americans with limited education are increasingly dying younger, on average, than other middle-age U.S. adults, a trend driven by their dwindling economic opportunities, research by two Princeton University economists has found.

The economists, Anne Case and Angus Deaton, argue in a paper released Thursday that the loss of steady middle-income jobs for those with high school degrees or less has triggered broad problems for this group. They are more likely than their college-educated counterparts, for example, to be unemployed, unmarried or afflicted with poor health.

"This is a story of the collapse of the white working class," Deaton said in an interview. "The labor market has very much turned against them."

NEW Simple Bill Filed To Repeal Obamacare, Restore Healthcare, But Will The RINOs Pass It?

In a simple two-page document, an Alabama congressman has filed a bill in the U.S. House of Representatives to repeal Obamacare.

Or, as it is stated in the bill, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Huntsville, introduced the bill Friday.

"This Act may be cited as the 'Obamacare Repeal Act,'" the bill states.

And the bill uses just one sentence to do it.

"Effective as of Dec. 31, 2017, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is repealed, and the provisions of law amended or repealed by such Act are restored or revived as if such Act had not been enacted," the bill states.

And that's it - one sentence.

Another bill signed into law by former President Barack Obama - the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010 - would also be repealed under Brooks' bill. The health care aspect of the law is also considered a part of Obamacare.

In a statement Friday announcing he would opposing the Republican health care plan that eventually was pulled from a vote because of a lack of support, Brooks said he would be introducing the bill to repeal Obamacare.

Brooks challenged his fellow lawmakers in Washington to sign the discharge petition that would bring the bill out of committee, where it could be left to die. Brooks' bill has no co-sponsors at this point.

"If the American people want to repeal Obamacare, this is their last, best chance during the 115th Congress," Brooks said. Those Congressmen who are sincere about repealing Obamacare may prove it by signing the discharge petition.

"At a minimum, the discharge petition will, like the sun burning away the fog, show American voters who really wants to repeal Obamacare and who merely acts that way during election time."

Amy Schumer drops out of 'Barbie' movie due to 'scheduling conflicts'

Amy Schumer has parted ways with Sony’s live-action “Barbie” over a scheduling conflict, Variety has learned.

“Sadly, I’m no longer able to commit to Barbie due to scheduling conflicts,” the actress said in a statement to Variety. “The film has so much promise, and Sony and Mattel have been great partners. I’m bummed, but look forward to seeing Barbie on the big screen.”

The big screen adaptation of Mattel’s iconic toy line was expected to start production this summer on June 23, but Schumer’s busy schedule includes a lengthy promotional tour for her new Fox comedy “Snatched,” which opens in May, as well as an upcoming shoot for Rebecca Miller’s “She Came to Me” opposite Steve Carell.

Sony needed to stick to its June 29, 2018 release date since Mattel already has merchandise and product cycles in motion–shifting the production to accommodate Schumer would have put on a strain on other partners on the film, according to insiders.

“We respect and support Amy’s decision,” a spokesperson for Sony said in a statement. “We look forward to bringing Barbie to the world and sharing updates on casting and filmmakers soon.”

Sony is still trying to find a director for the comedy. The “Barbie” movie is said to be in the vein of “Splash”, “Enchanted” and “Big.” In it, the main character gets kicked out of Barbieland for not being perfect enough and lands in a real-world adventure.

Schumer recently did a polish of the script. It’s unknown whether the same tone will be kept with the comedian no longer attached.

Walter F. Parkes, Laurie MacDonald and Amy Pascal are producing the film. Parkes and MacDonald initiated the original deal with Mattel in 2014.

Schumer can be seen next in the action-comedy “Snatched,” which opens on May 12, 2017, and also has “Thank You for Your Service” opening in October. She is repped by UTA, Carrie Byalick at B Company and Maverick Management.

Globalist Cunts and Assholes @ United Nations Openly Call For Banning Free Speech

The United Nations marked the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination on Tuesday by telling governments around the world that regulating “hate speech” is part of the strategy needed to “stand up for someone’s rights.”

Governments around the world “have a legal obligation to stop hate speech…" UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein reportedly said Tuesday, adding a call “on people everywhere to ‘stand up for someone’s rights,'” the press release about the event said.

“It is not an attack on free speech or the silencing of controversial ideas or criticism, but a recognition that the right to freedom of expression carries with it special duties and responsibilities,” Al Hussein said in a statement.

“Words of fear and loathing can, and do, have real consequences,” Zeid said.

In his statement, Zeid said that U.N. member states “do not have any excuse to allow racism and xenophobia to fester.”

States “have the legal obligation to prohibit and eliminate racial discrimination, to guarantee the right of everyone, no matter their race, color, national or ethnic origin, to equality before the law.”

“At the Summit for Refugees and Migrants in September 2016, U.N. member states adopted a declaration strongly condemning acts and manifestations of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance,” the press release said. “The Summit also sparked the UN’s Together initiative to change negative perceptions and attitudes aimed at refugees and migrants.”

The press release said this year’s theme is “ending racial profiling and incitement to hatred, including as it relates to people’s attitudes and actions towards migration.”

In other words, if you call Islamic Terrorism for what it is, the UN wants you locked up!

Democrats Want To Censor Our Internet, Alternative Media....Again

Alternative Media Backup: >>>/killcen2017/

The campaign by Democrats on the Federal Election Commission to regulate the internet, from Twitter and Facebook to Drudge, is back after some liberal commissioners threw in the towel amid GOP opposition.

Seizing on an exit report card of the agency by ex-Commissioner Ann Ravel, the left is complaining that the internet isn't being regulated for political content and spending, but should be.

Using the "altFEC" twitter account, one of several "alt" sites set up by government workers in agencies resisting the new Trump administration, the proponents reference Ravel's critical report.

"It means that the @FEC's disclosure rules have not been updated for the era of YouTube, Facebook, or Twitter," it said, reiterating charges from Ravel and others that the FEC rules are outdated. She led the effort to change them and Republicans on the commission said that her goal was only to regulate right-leaning websites, like Drudge, and online campaigns of Republicans.

The new push for regulation drew a laugh from a conservative FEC watcher: "It is ironic that the Democrats are using an anonymous twitter account to attack the right of non-profit organizations to post content on the web for free without disclosing their donors."

Good! Arkansas Gets Rid Of Gun-free Zones

Arkansas governor Asa Hutchinson, a Republican, signed a bill into law on Wednesday that will allow those with gun-carry permits and special training to carry in areas that are otherwise designated gun-free zones.

"This bill, in my view, reflects the will of the General Assembly and is constitutional and will balance public safety and the Second Amendment," Hutchinson told the Associated Press.

The law allows those with a gun-carry permit who complete eight hours of active-shooter training to carry in many places where guns are otherwise prohibited. The locations affected by the law include college campuses, churches, athletic events, and government buildings. Private property owners would still be able to prohibit firearms on their property.

The law is slated to take effect on September 1 but gives state police until January of next year to determine the specifics of the training requirements it lays out. Current gun-carry permit holders would have to take the training before they would be eligible to carry in the affected locations.

The law passed despite fierce opposition from some Democrats who were upset with several of the provisions, including the campus-carry rules. "People like to have a good time before the game, during the game, people get emotional and angry during the game," Democratic Rep. Greg Leding told the wire service. "I think the idea of introducing loaded weapons into those situations is just ridiculous."

Gun-rights proponents praised the law and said it would make the state safer.

"Only criminals can find safety in gun-free zones," Chris Cox, head of the National Rifle Association's lobbying arm, said in a statement. "By allowing enhanced permit holders to carry in more places, Gov. Hutchinson has made Arkansas a safer place to live."

RIGGED! Even When They Win Big, Republicans Act Like the Minority

Republicans said they couldn’t get things done with just the House, so voters gave them the Senate. Republicans said they couldn’t get things done with just Congress, so voters gave them the White House. Republicans still can’t get things done. And it doesn’t surprise me one bit.

I’ve lived through 10 presidential elections in my lifetime, and actually followed and understood 8 of them (I started early). And one thing that is as reliable as the sun rising in the east? When Democrats win, they act like they have been given a mandate to run the table. When Republicans win, they act like they’ve been elected to bring about a new era of bipartisanship and compromise.

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t blame the Democrats for this. They know how the game is played, and they play it well. Barack Obama epitomized this kind of belligerent attitude towards lawmaking after he won his first term. Whether it was telling Republicans that they could come along, but would have to ride in the back of the bus, or famously taunting, “Elections have consequences…I won,” he took his victory as a sign of groundswell public support for a far left agenda.

And the left doesn’t back down. That’s why we got Obamacare in the first place – not a single Republican supported the disaster, but the Democrats held ranks and pushed it through regardless. After all, they won.

Did it set off a wave of anger? Of course. Did it cost them in the next election? Of course. Did they need to worry? Not a bit. Because as soon as Republicans swept into power in Congress, what did the Democrats do? President Obama strutted out like the country’s agitated schoolmarm and lectured incoming Republicans that it was “clear” the country wants Republicans and Democrats to work together.

Wait, what? Democrats win, it’s a Democrat mandate. Republicans win, it’s a call for compromise. And here’s the incredible part – the Republicans buy it.

Here we are following a presidential campaign unlike any other. Republicans swept all of the federal government after campaigning on the promise to repeal Obamacare. And once in office, do they push through the exact same Obamacare repeal bill they had already passed through to Obama’s desk a year ago? No, they write a new bill to try to reach out to Democrats. As a consequence, they lost conservative Republican support, and garnered no help from Democrats who actually mocked them for their “rookie” move.

Senate Democrat leader Chuck Schumer begins acting like he’s the one in charge, setting ultimatums: “Once the Republicans take repeal off the table, we’re willing to work with them to improve it.”

They don’t need the Democrats to work with them. But seemingly they are the only ones who can’t manage to grasp that.

It would be hilarious if it wasn’t so maddening.

Broken Arrow-area man fatally shoots three intruders

The son of a Broken Arrow-area homeowner fatally shot three masked intruders, two of whom were juveniles, during a home invasion Monday, authorities said.

Police later arrested an Oologah woman who is believed to be the getaway driver on three complaints of first-degree murder and three complaints of first-degree burglary.

Two of the deceased were 16 or 17 years old, and the third was 18 or 19, Deputy Nick Mahoney said. Their names had not been released by Monday evening.

Mahoney said the homeowner’s 23-year-old son shot the man and two boys with an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle after they broke into the house, which is about two-thirds of a mile east of the Broken Arrow city limits in Wagoner County. The property is just south of 91st Street and west of 241st East Avenue.

The three intruders were wearing all-black clothing, masks and gloves, Mahoney said. They forced their way into the home through a glass door in the back, he said.

The son, who lives at the residence, told deputies he was sleeping when he was awakened by “loud bangs” coming from the back door. He armed himself with the rifle and opened fire when the intruders came inside and he encountered them in the hallway, he told the deputies. Two of the intruders died in the kitchen, while the third made his way outside and succumbed to his injuries in the driveway.

Investigators found a knife on one of the deceased in the kitchen and brass knuckles on the other, Mahoney said.

Later that afternoon, 21-year-old Elizabeth Marie Rodriguez of Oologah turned herself in at the Broken Arrow Police Department after seeing media reports about the shootings, Mahoney said.

She reportedly indicated to police that she had driven the three burglars to the house and was supposed to have picked them up after the burglary.

PepsiCo,Walmart,Starbucks join growing list of boycotters of YouTube,racist vids why

PepsiCo, Walmart and Starbucks on Friday confirmed that they have suspended their advertising on YouTube, joining a growing boycott in a sign that big companies doubt Google’s ability to prevent marketing campaigns from appearing alongside repugnant videos.

The companies pulled their ads after the Wall Street Journal found that Google’s automated programs placed their brands on five videos containing racist content. AT&T, Verizon, Volkswagen and several other companies pulled ads earlier this week.

“The content with which we are being associated is appalling and completely against our company values,” Walmart said in a Friday statement.

Besides suspending their spending on YouTube, Walmart, Pepsi and several other companies have said they will stop buying ads that Google places on more than 2m other third-party websites.

The defections are continuing even after Google apologized for tainting brands and outlined steps to ensure ads don’t appear alongside unsavory videos.

If Google can’t lure back advertisers, it could result in a loss of hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue. Most analysts, though, doubt the ad boycott will seriously hurt Google’s corporate parent, Alphabet. Alphabet shares have fallen more than 3% since Monday, closing at $839.65 on Thursday.

Although they have been growing rapidly, YouTube’s ads still only represent a relatively small financial piece of Alphabet, whose revenue totaled $73.5bn last year after subtracting commissions paid to Google’s partners. YouTube accounted for $5.6bn, or nearly 8%, of that total, based on estimates from the research firm eMarketer.

Whether the recent events are a mere blip on the radar for Google or a harbinger of bigger problems to come may depend on whether the company can quickly improve its technical tools to give advertisers more control over where their ads appear.

YouTube has begun reviewing its advertising policies and will take steps to give advertisers more control, Philipp Schindler, Google’s chief business officer, wrote in a blog post this week. Google also plans to hire more people for its review team and refine its artificial intelligence – a key step, since much of the ad-serving is handled by automation.

Tony Podesta Made $500K Lobbying For Chinese Firm Convicted Of Illegal Sales To Iran

Democratic super-lobbyist Tony Podesta grossed more than $500,000 to represent a Chinese company criminally convicted in March of sending illegal shipments of telecom equipment to Iran, The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group has learned.

The seriousness of the illegal sales to Iran were so extreme and continued for so long — from 2010 to last year — the Department of Justice (DOJ) imposed a record $1.19 billion fine on the ZTE Telecommunications company, making it the largest penalty ever imposed in a U.S. sanctions case.

The Chinese firm hired the Podesta Group, one of Washington’s biggest and best-connected lobbying companies in the nation’s capital, in January 2016. ZTE retained Podesta’s personal help as negotiations intensified for a final resolution with DOJ during the final year of President Barack Obama’s tenure in the White House.

The Shenzhen-based company pleaded guilty on March 7 to violating a 22-year-old ban on shipments to Iran, including “conspiring by illegally shipping … U.S.-origin items to Iran, obstructing justice and making a material false statement,” according to the DOJ.

The Department of Commerce also released other documents showing ZTE executives had “ongoing projects in all five major embargoed countries — Iran, Sudan, North Korea, Syria and Cuba.”

“We are putting the world on notice: The games are over,” said Commerce Secretary Wilbur L. Ross when the guilty plea settlement was announced. “Those who flout our economic sanctions and export control laws will not go unpunished — they will suffer the harshest of consequences.”

The ZTE equipment included network servers, optical devices and other telecommunication equipment, but also shipped surveillance software that could be used to spy on Iranian dissidents, DOJ said.

While Podesta was lobbying the Obama administration, his brother, John Podesta, was campaign chairman of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential run. The brothers’ relationship meant Tony had special clout within the Obama administration as ZTE’s negotiations with DOJ progressed.

Podesta also had personal connections throughout the Democratic Party. He was former President Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign director and worked for four prior Democratic candidates, including former Sens. George McGovern, Edward Kennedy and Walter Mondale, as well as former Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis.

ZTE paid Podesta $35,000 per month as negotiations peaked in 2016, according to data provided by the Center for Responsive Politics. The payments to the Podesta Group began in January 2016 and continue to this day, according to his company’s lobbying disclosure forms.

Podesta’s lobbying firm grossed $530,000 from ZTE through the first quarter of 2017.

The firm reported its activities to the clerk of the U.S. Senate, including actively lobbying officials at the departments of Justice, Commerce, Treasury and State, as well as the White House National Security Council (NSC).

Pregnant Mexican Immigrant Teenager Blown Away by Cops as They Tried to Arrest Robbery Suspect

A 16-year-old girl was shot and killed by police officers Tuesday in Northern California after the car she was riding in rammed a police vehicle.

Family members identified the girl as Elena Mondragon, who they called Ebbie, and described her as witty and fun-loving. She was pregnant when she was killed, KTVU reported.

On Tuesday, Mondragon was one of four people in a car that had been reported stolen, the Hayward Police Department said. The car had been connected to multiple armed robberies in Fremont and the Bay Area, police said, and Fremont Police Department detectives attempted to stop it at an apartment complex.

Instead of stopping, the driver rammed cars including a police vehicle — injuring the two Fremont detectives, authorities said. They opened fire at the driver, Hayward police said, but they struck only the car and Mondragon.

She was taken to a hospital, where she died, police said. Her name has not publicly been released, but a family member started a GoFundMe to ask for prayers and donations toward funeral expenses.

“Her single mother does not have means or frame of mind to handle these details,” the page said.

Two others who were in the car — described only as a male and a female — were taken into custody at the scene. The female occupant was later released to her parents, police said.

The fourth person in the car — who was also identified as male — was arrested Wednesday night in San Francisco on suspicion of robbery, police said.

“As this is an ongoing investigation and the case has not yet been submitted to the District Attorney’s Office for charging, we will not be identifying any of the subjects who are in custody related to the Hayward Police Department’s investigation,” police said.

Following the shooting, the detectives were treated at a hospital and released. Their actions are now under investigation by the Hayward Police Department as well as the Alameda District Attorney’s Office, as is standard for officer-involved shootings in the area.

While IRS Stalled Conservative Groups, Satanic Club Granted Tax-Exempt Status in 10 Days

The Internal Revenue Service made Tea Party and conservative groups wait years for tax-exempt status, but granted exempt status to an "After School Satan Club" in just 10 days, according to the watchdog group Judicial Watch.

Charitable, religious, and educational organizations can receive tax-exempt status if they follow IRS guidelines for nonprofits. The IRS for years prevented some conservative groups from obtaining this status, targeting them using key words such as "tea-party" and "patriot." Many of these groups had to wait up to seven years to receive tax-exempt status, while others were denied.

"In the meantime, leftist groups like the Satan club got fast tracked," Judicial Watch said. "The Satanic cult applied for tax-exempt status on October 21, 2014, and received it on October 31, 2014."

The nonprofit Reason Alliance was behind the after-school club. It operates in Washington State as the Satanic Temple of Seattle.

"Children ages 5-12 will develop basic critical reasoning, character qualities, problem solving and creative expression, according to the Satanic Temple filings included in the documents," Judicial Watch explains. "The club logo is a pencil with devil's horns."

A number of secular or atheist groups, including the Reason Alliance, refer to themselves as "satanist" in order to shock religious communities. The group's website states it is committed to "secular, humanistic values" and opposes tax exemption for religious organizations.

No one signed up for the satanic club in the two weeks after its creation. The IRS still allowed this group to operate as a nonprofit in taxpayer-funded elementary schools, the watchdog group noted.

A Simple Command Allows the CIA to Commandeer 318 Models of Cisco Switches

A Simple Command Allows the CIA to Commandeer 318 Models of Cisco Switches

Cisco Systems said that more than 300 models of switches it sells contain a critical vulnerability that allows the CIA to use a simple command to remotely execute malicious code that takes full control of the devices. There currently is no fix.

Cisco researchers said they discovered the vulnerability as they analyzed a cache of documents that are believed to have been stolen from the CIA and published by WikiLeaks two weeks ago. The flaw, found in at least 318 switches, allows remote attackers to execute code that runs with elevated privileges, Cisco warned in an advisory published Friday. The bug resides in the Cisco Cluster Management Protocol (CMP), which uses the telnet protocol to deliver signals and commands on internal networks. It stems from a failure to restrict telnet options to local communications and the incorrect processing of malformed CMP-only telnet options.

"An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending malformed CMP-specific telnet options while establishing a telnet session with an affected Cisco device configured to accept telnet connections," the advisory stated. "An exploit could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code and obtain full control of the device or cause a reload of the affected device."

Compounding the risk, vulnerable switches will process CMP-specific telnet options by default, "even if no cluster configuration commands are present on the device configuration," the advisory warned. The vulnerability mostly affects Cisco Catalyst switches but is also found in Industrial Ethernet switches and embedded services. Cisco plans to release a fix at an unspecified date.

While Friday's advisory said there are "no workaround that address this vulnerability," it did say the vulnerability was active only when buggy devices were configured to accept incoming telnet connections. Disabling telnet as a means for receiving incoming connections eliminates the threat, and Cisco has provided instructions for disabling telnet. Cisco switch users who aren't willing to disable telnet can lower the risk of exploits by using an access control list to restrict the devices that are permitted to send and receive telnet commands.

Cisco's advisory is among the first from a major electronics manufacturer to warn that its products are vulnerable to exploits discussed in Vault 7, the name WikiLeaks gave to thousands of pages of documents it said were leaked from the CIA. The cache appears to have come from an internal Wiki made available to CIA insiders. In it, the members discuss various exploits and the vulnerabilities they target in products from Apple, Microsoft, Samsung, Cisco, and others.

Documents published so far don't appear to explicitly discuss technical details of the vulnerabilities or how to exploit them. Last week, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange vowed he would privately disclose those details to manufacturers so they would have time to fix them before the vulnerabilities became widely known. According to Motherboard, WikiLeaks has yet to provide any such details and instead has made only unspecified demands.

The full list of affected Cisco switches can be found here.

Court Docs Reveal Monsanto And EPA Colluded To Poison The Public

RELATED: >>>/realnews/653

A court case in California has forced the release of emails between Monsanto and the EPA, and the contents are sickening. We now have certifiable proof that Monsanto has always known Roundup causes cancer.

But even worse, we now have proof the EPA is a corrupt organization that is more interested in money than protecting the environment or the health of Americans.

This weedkiller isn’t just used on GMOs but on 70 different food crops in the U.S. – it’s in practically everything Americans eat. So, if glyphosate in Roundup is causing cancer and other diseases, I want to know about it and get it out of our food – don’t you?

Food Babe reports: http://archive.is/7gsGR

Monsanto makes billions off of Roundup sales, so they don’t want anyone to question its safety. Some never-before-seen confidential documents just released in a court case against Monsanto give us a glimpse into how they are working to influence the EPA (who is in charge of determining whether they are allowed to sell Roundup anymore) and undermine any efforts to ban its use.

These documents show what many of us have known and suspected for quite some time… Monsanto is manipulating scientific research and has gotten some EPA officials on their side who seem to be helping them cover-up the health dangers of Roundup so they can keep it on the market.

Keep in mind… Monsanto and the EPA are both fighting to stop the public seeing these internal emails! Why do you think that is?

While Monsanto is being sued in California by dozens of people who claim Roundup caused their non-hodgkin’s lymphoma, Monsanto had to provide over 6 million pages of internal emails and documents to the court and attorneys, and marked the majority of them as “confidential” so they’d be hidden from the public.

When the plaintiffs asked the court to make the records public, both Monsanto and the EPA objected. The judge didn’t agree with their objections and threatened to sanction Monsanto if they continued trying to seal documents and found it in the best interest of the public to release them for all of us to see, “even if Monsanto doesn’t like what they say”.

The public interest group U.S. Right To Know is publishing these documents in their entirety on their website here. This is just the beginning and more are coming out.

Here’s what we have uncovered in these documents so far:

Good! Trump Kills UN Climate Change Initiative, Calls It An “Elaborate Hoax”

President Trump has slammed global warming as an elaborate hoax and forced the United Nations to stop making it compulsory for nations to contribute funding to global climate change programs.

G20 officials who met on Friday announced that “climate change is out for the time being” after President Trump dismantled Barack Obama and Angela Merkel’s old blueprint for compulsory financial donations to the cause.

Asked about the cut in funding to global climate change programs, Mick Mulvaney, Trump’s budget director, told reporters “we consider that to be a waste of (Americans’) money.”

“I think the president is fairly straightforward. We’re not spending money on that,” he said.

Instead the money is being poured into long-ignored domestic infrastructure projects, such as the $100 million Flint water crisis solution granted to Michigan by Trump’s EPA last week.

Reuters reports: http://archive.is/2KM30

Opposition from the United States, Saudi Arabia and others has forced Germany to drop a reference to financing programmes to combat climate change from the draft communique at a G20 finance and central bankers meeting.

A G20 official taking part in the meeting said on Friday that efforts by the German G20 presidency to keep the wording on climate change financing had run into resistance.

“Climate change is out for the time being,” said the official, who asked not to be named.

At their last meeting in July 2016 in the Chinese city of Chengdu, the G20 financial leaders said they encouraged all signatories of the Paris Agreement on climate change to bring the deal into force as soon as possible.

But U.S. President Donald Trump, who took office in November, has called global warming a “hoax” concocted by China to hurt U.S. industry and vowed to unpick the Paris climate accord that is supposed to curb rising temperatures.

FBI Will Investigate Alleged Pedophile Ring Tied To Local Police Force Youth Program

The FBI has been ordered to investigate a child sex trafficking ring operating within the Louisville Police Department with officers suspected of rape, production of child porn, and human trafficking through a government funded youth program.

Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer described the alleged sexual abuse of children in the police department’s Youth Explorer program as "our worst nightmare".

Fischer also revealed that former U.S. Attorney Kerry Harvey had been called in to review the investigation of Louisville Metro Police, including police Chief Steve Conrad, and determine whether “errors were made”.

An integral part of the investigation will be to determine whether the pedophilia ring is localized within the department, or whether it extends and interlinks with other larger networks in the United States.

Mayor Fischer vowed to uncover any evidence of a cover-up of child sex abuse by the police department saying “if there has been an injustice, it will be remedied.”

Courier Journal reports: http://archive.is/vyrqY

Harvey, who was appointed by President Barack Obama in 2010 as the top prosecutor in the Eastern District of Kentucky and stepped down in January, said he would conduct a “stem-to-stern review” to determine if the investigation was effective and appropriate – and if procedures were not followed, “why not.”

A lawsuit filed last week on behalf of a former Scout identified as N.C. charges that his alleged rape by Officers Kenneth Betts and Brandon Wood was “concealed” by department officials. Betts and Wood are accused of sexually assaulting the former Scout from 2011 through 2013 and recording the incidents to make porn.

The Courier-Journal reported this week that Conrad ended an investigation of alleged "improper contact" between Betts and a teenage girl in the program because Betts resigned in 2014. Wood is still with the force but on administrative assignment.

Conrad told the Courier-Journal on Friday he is "dying" to talk about the allegations but is barred from doing so by a court order sealing the lawsuit. Fischer said he expects the case will be unsealed next week.

The Courier-Journal has filed a motion to unseal the case. The city has also asked that it be unsealed.

Fischer said he first learned about misconduct in the Explorer program last October when he received a heads-up from Conrad that there would be media reports. The mayor declined to comment when asked whether additional police officers or youths were involved, citing a pending criminal investigation by the department’s Public Integrity Unit.

Asked if he still has confidence in Conrad, the mayor initially avoided directly answering the question, saying “what is important is to get to the truth, and I think he agrees with that.” Ultimately, Fischer said he did have confidence in the chief.

Fischer also said Conrad was “aligned” with the decision to hire Harvey, who was retained Friday under a $275-an-hour contract capped at $50,000. Harvey will not have subpoena power but will enjoy the “full power of the mayor,” Fischer said.

The city also will conduct a separate inquiry that will examine all agencies that have programs involving children and teenagers to determine if adequate measures are in place to protect them.

Alex Jones Is Very, Very Sorry for That Pizzagate Stuff:Suecucked

In the apology, Jones says that the lawyers of James Alefantis, the man behind Comet Ping Pong, sent him a letter asking him to apologize for his comments. Jones does just that and outright says the narrative around pizzagate was "incorrect" and that apologizing was "the right thing to do."

"To my knowledge today, neither Mr. Alefantis, nor his restaurant Comet Ping Pong, were involved in any human trafficking as was part of the theories about Pizzagate that were being written about in the media outlets and which we commented upon," Jones says.

One day after Jones apologized for his role in the conspiracy that ended with three bullet holes in the roof of a pizzeria, true believers made their way to DC for a rally.

Alex Jones—the barrel-chested don of the modern day conspiracy theory movement—did something completely out of the ordinary this week.

Jones didn't take his shirt off and scream that Hillary Clinton worships the devil and smells like sulpher (that was so 2016), no, in something far more out of character, Jones got serious and apologized for his role in pizzagate.

Weird, right?

This is a man who has backed down from almost nothing in his time as the fearless leader of Infowars—from inspiring hate mail sent to Sandy Hook parents to calling the Quebec mosque massacre a false flag, Jones typically stands his ground—not this time, though. This time, in a pre-recorded video package aired on Friday, Jones went full out in saying he was wrong.

While the Joneses of the conspiracy world have backed off, the diehards are still going full bore. The day after Jones issued his apology, a contingent (read: dozens) of the true believers made their way to Washington to try and prompt President Trump to look into it.

"The elite have failed to cover up their sad world," wrote the new pizzagate king David Seaman in a tweet Saturday. "Today we make our voices heard. Pedogate [the new rebranded term for pizzagate] is real and we demand answers."

For those of you people who live full, rich lives and don't yet know what pizzagate is (you lucky, lucky folks) here's a quick catch up. The term came to light after Democratic party emails were leaked and some fun folks online started noticing what they thought to be pizza-based "code words" in the emails. This of course convinced these sleuths that there was a pizza-based pedophilia ring in DC that involved all sorts of government power brokers.

The pizzagaters started focusing on a man named James Alefantis and his pizza shop, Comet Ping Pong, because of several mentions in the emails. Jones and his theorist flunkies, alongside many, many YouTubers, fanned the flames of this theory and, at times, suggested people they should investigate it themselves—some people, as they always do, took this too far.

A man named Edgar Welch was one of the people who let pizzagate rot his brain. The 28-year-old travelled to Washington DC from North Carolina. With a rifle in hand he stormed Comet Ping Pong in an attempt to investigate it and fired three shots into the air. This, thankfully, was the final straw for many people and, other than the die hards, theorists started slowly backing away from the notion

How the CIA Plants News Stories in the Media

It is no longer disputed that the CIA has maintained an extensive and ongoing relationship with news organizations and journalists, and multiple, specific acts of media manipulation have now been documented. But as long as the public continues to ignore the influence of intelligence agencies in shaping or even fabricating news stories, the agency will continue to be able to set the policy that drives the American war machine

14-Year-Old Girl Would Never Have Been Raped if Allowed To Do Our Job, Border Patrol Council Says

“Had we done our job, that 14-year-old girl would never have been raped," National Border Council President Brandon Judd testified in a Senate hearing Wednesday.

Questioned about reports that a 14 year-old girl at a Maryland public school was raped by an illegal alien who was on their “alien removal” list, Judd blamed the inability to detain and deport previously-identified illegal aliens:

"Senator, had we done our job, that 14-year-old girl would never have been raped. Period. That's all there is to it.

“Had we held those individuals in custody, or that one individual in custody pending a determination that this person should be allowed to remain in this country, that rape wouldn't have happened. We failed the citizens of this great nation by not securing the border.”

Judd said that half of all illegal aliens are successfully breaking into the United States without capture due, in part, to policies that are demoralizing border agents:

“Not only did we have the catch and release program that completely and totally demoralized the rank and file agents in the border patrol, but we also had an arrest rate of one out of every two. We only had a 50 percent effectiveness rate. That's a problem. So not only were the individuals that we were actually arresting, not only were we releasing those individuals, but we were only apprehending one out of every two that was crossing the border illegally.

"There’s no private company in the United States that can operate and be successful if they have a 50% success rate. They would go out of business."

Putin Slams Governments for Imperialism, Pedophilia, and Faith in Satan

In a rarely seen speech, Putin states that there is a moral crisis occurring in the west and it is one that is purposely created by governments.

In short, the moral foundations of objective right and wrong often linked to Christendom have eroded.

In their place the imperial oligarchs have erected a system that reverses what is good and replaces it with propaganda that leads to cultural decay and erasure of identity, according to Putin.

He suggests that traditional faith in God has been replaced by Satanism. It sounds crazy enough, but then again, there does seem to be at least some degree of affinity for occult religious practices among certain politically connected individuals. Whether it is “Satanism” or something altogether different, is a question we will leave others to decide.

He says parties which “promote the propaganda of pedophilia” have been seriously considered as legitimate due to the excesses of political correctness.

The speech has received renewed interest in light of the current investigation into US politicians involved in sex trafficking and pedophile rings (what many are calling #pedogate).

And Putin is not just talking, he’s taking action too.

Fairly recently he implemented a ban on any US foster parents adopting Russian children.

The ban seems extreme, but one must admit it is true that the foster care industry in the US is rife with trafficking and child prostitution, using “adoption” as a front in many cases.

Putin then adds that while this moral crisis is happening at a national level, there are international attempts to eliminate sovereign nations and replace them with a system of globalized hegemony.

We know that we’re supposed to listen to the corporate media and believe that Putin is inherently diabolical. And like most powerful leaders, Putin has been involved in his share of transgressions.

But on this point, at least, Putin is technically correct. There is indeed an international western power-structure bent on creating global Statehood or a unipolar geopolitical order. Rockefeller’s recent death reminds us that he admitted he was part of this structure.

THE CIVIL WAR IS HERE

A civil war has begun.

This civil war is very different than the last one. There are no cannons or cavalry charges. The left doesn’t want to secede. It wants to rule. Political conflicts become civil wars when one side refuses to accept the existing authority. The left has rejected all forms of authority that it doesn’t control.

The left has rejected the outcome of the last two presidential elections won by Republicans. It has rejected the judicial authority of the Supreme Court when it decisions don’t accord with its agenda. It rejects the legislative authority of Congress when it is not dominated by the left.

Oy Vey! Iran to label CIA, US Army as terrorist groups

Iran announces sanctions against 15 US companies which do business with Israel in retaliation for US sanctions against Islamic Republic

Iran said Sunday it will impose sanctions on 15 US companies for supporting Israel's "terrorist actions" as part of reprisals for the increasing pressure being announced by Washington lawmakers.

The decision, which is largely symbolic since the firms do not do business with Iran, come two days after the US announced new sanctions against groups and individuals that it accuses of collaborating with Iran's nuclear weapons program.

The sanctions target firms that provide arms and equipment to Israel "for use against the Palestinians", IRNA said.

"All transactions with these firms are forbidden, their assets will be seized and their officials will not be able to obtain a visa," it added.

The list included defense firms such as United Technologies, Military Armament Corporation and Bushmaster Firearms International, as well as Re/Max Real Estate, which Tehran accuses of "buying and selling homes in settlements located in the occupied territories".

In another tit-for-tat move, Iran's parliamentary foreign affairs committee said it would propose a new law labeling the US army and CIA as terrorist groups.

The announcement was a response to a new bill put forward by US lawmakers that would see Iran's Revolutionary Guards listed as a terrorist organization.

"The American army is present in numerous regional crises such as Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and Yemen and provides vast support to terrorist groups," said Alaeddin Boroujerdi, president of the committee, according to a state television report.

Tensions have mounted between Tehran and Washington since US President Donald Trump took office in January.

Trump has repeatedly criticized a July 2015 deal between Iran and world powers that saw the Islamic republic curb its nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief.

Washington last month imposed new sanctions on individuals and companies supporting Iran's ballistic missile program and on its elite Revolutionary Guards.

On Friday, it announced the latest sanctions against entities accused of collaborating with the weapons programs of Iran and North Korea.

Should We Pay Off $20 Trillion in National Debt by Selling Federal Assets?

Total US debt is closing in on $20 trillion but it appears as if President Trump may be considering a fire sale of government assets to pay it off. Not only would this lower or completely wipe out the entire US national debt but it would also simultaneously shrink the size of government by transferring a significant amount of federal land and assets to the private sector.

This was the subject of our recent interview with William Shughart, Senior Fellow at the Independent Institute and a former economist at the Federal Trade Commission, who was contacted by Trump's team to assess the feasibility of this idea, including estimates of all federal assets.

Here's a short clip of what he had to say: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FdPGa8HHeyo

We should take advantage of the fact that the US government is the wealthiest that’s ever existed on the face of the Earth to help pay down the national debt, Shughart stated.

If a program could be launched where some of the federal government’s estimated trillions of assets could be sold off to the private sector, we could raise funds virtually overnight to wipe out the national debt as it currently exists.

“The basic idea is to begin a structured sale — a fire sale — of federal assets to raise the funds to pay off the national debt,” Shughart said.

Since the federal government owns 28% of the land mass of the United States, this would be the first place to start.

However, Shughart noted, “the real treasure trove is not on federal lands … but underneath them, in the form of oil, gas, and other mineral deposits both offshore and on.”

Depending on how those energy reserves are valued, estimates run from $28 trillion up to $128 trillion, he said.

“Selling off rights to explore and access these oil, gas, and other mineral deposits, by itself could wipe out the national debt.”

NGA: The Billion Dollar Spy Agency You’ve Never Heard Of

The NSA and CIA are household names in the U.S. most consider them the leading spy agencies. However, there’s a one spy agency that has managed to remain in the shadows.

The agency has cutting edge tools of the surveillance trade. It’s headquarters is bigger that the U.S. Capitol in size. Its name is the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA).

Surprisingly, even former President Barack Obama didn’t know of its existence when he first took office. The agency has 15,400 employees.

The NGA remains the most shadowy member of the Big Five spy agencies, which include the CIA and the National Security Agency.The secretive identity of NGA contradicts the agency’s massive physical size and the scope of its surveillance activities.

The agency was completed in 2011 at a cost of $1.4 billion. Its main building measures four football fields long and covers as much ground as two aircraft carriers.

Back in 2016, the agency purchased 99 acres in St. Louis to construct additional buildings at a cost of $1.75 billion to accommodate the growing workforce, with 3,000 employees already in the city.

NGA’s principal function is to analyze the billions of images and miles of video captured by drones in the Middle East and spy satellites circling the globe.

NGA has largely kept its ultra-high-resolution cameras pointed away from the United States, according to a variety of studies, the agency has never been involved in domestic spy scandals like its two far more famous siblings, the CIA and the NSA.

NGA was originally tasked with cartography. It has since undergone a mammoth expansion, the spy arm had been called the National Imagery and Mapping Agency, until a name and mission switch in 2003 gave the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency its name, with the hyphen allowing a three-letter acronym so enamored by the government.

President Dwight D. Eisenhower created the National Photographic Interpretation Center shortly before leaving office, it was later absorbed by the NGA.

The NGA works in conjunction with the U.S. Air Force to analyze the staggering amount of data collected through aerial surveillance abroad, mostly by unmanned aerial systems, such as drones with high-powered cameras.The NGA was integral in the analysis of surveillance data pertaining to Iran’s nuclear capabilities.

The data provided to the NGA by military officials has assisted in various U.S. operations in the Middle East by tracking vehicles believed responsible for planting improvised explosive devices, or IEDs, and for monitoring hot spots for insurgent breakouts.

The NGA was involved in the NEPTUNE’S SPEAR mission, the mission to kill Osama Bin Laden. NGA enabled the SEAL Team Six to access a perfect replica of the Abbottabad compound where the terrorist mastermind was hiding.

The NGA collected the details of Osama’s compound using laser radar and imagery to construct a 3D version of the compound.The NGA figured the compounds measurements and analysis, how many people lived at the compound, their gender, and even their heights. But the NGA didn’t stop there: Its calculations also helped the pilots of the stealth Black Hawks know precisely where to land.

The National and Military Intelligence combined budget request for 2017 totaled $70.3 billion. NGA is under the program the agency will definitely have quickened support from the authoritarian-leaning, pro-military Trump administration.

There are fears that the agencies astonishingly sophisticated equipment could be granted authority to bring its expert microscope into focus against the American people.

The agency can determine the structure of buildings and objects from a distance, it has some of the most sophisticated facial recognition software on the planet and uses sensors on satellites and drones that can see through thick clouds for ‘all-weather’ imagery analysis.

Windows 10 Keeps Spying Even When All Privacy Options Are Turned Off (No Shit)

REMEMBER OPSEC: >>>/opsec/4

In addition to the vulnerability of Apple’s expensive gadgetry, iPhones and iMac, to CIA hacking, Bill Gates’ Windows 10 is surveilling its users by default, i.e. no need for the CIA to hack it anymore. What this means is: your PC’s camera, microphone, and keystrokes are being recorded and stored in their cloud-based databases, for future reference.

Simply put, Microsoft Windows 10 and all its previous versions are the Deep State’s window to their users’ private lives.

We should not expect otherwise in the first place.

When you boot up Windows 10 for the very first time, you have the option to customize several settings related to the collection of data from Microsoft’s servers.

You can stop your machine from sending contact and calendar details, typing and speech data, location data and even error and diagnostic reports. Unfortunately, no matter how many boxes you uncheck, Microsoft is still going to collect information from your computer, whether you know it or not.

In a Voat thread last week, a user by the name of CheesusCrust published his findings after running a network traffic analysis relating to the telemetry and surveillance features of Windows 10. The results were troubling, to say the least.

While setting up a fresh copy of Windows 10 Enterprise Edition on VirtualBox, the user went through and disabled all three pages of tracking options, one by one. He then left the computer running for eight hours overnight, and returned to find that Windows 10 had attempted to contact 51 Microsoft IP addresses 5,508 times.

After 30 hours, over 112 IP addresses had been contacted. That's right, Windows 10 is a botnet.

The user attempted the same experiment once again with a fresh install of Windows 10 as well as a third party tool called DisableWinTracking. He discovered that the name of the tool is slightly misleading, as Windows 10 had contacted 30 IP addresses 2,758 times in the same 30 hour time frame.

To make matters worse, US senators just voted to allow your ISP to sell your browsing history without your prior permission.

The US Senate has voted to overturn consumer privacy laws enacted last year by the FCC. The rules, which forced internet service providers to actually get permission before selling your data, were overturned using the little-used Congressional Review Act (CRA).

Democrat Senator Richard Blumenthal said before the vote that “This resolution is a direct attack on consumer rights, on privacy, on rules that afford basic protection against intrusive and illegal interference with consumers’ use of social media sites and websites that often they talk for granted.” Hope you enjoyed it while it lasted.

Good! AG Sessions Announces Plan to Cut Federal Funding to Illegal Sanctuary Cities

On Monday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said he would begin withholding billions of dollars from so-called sanctuary cities and even begin ‘clawing back’ funds that have already been given to these cities.

Sanctuary cities are cities that protect illegal immigrants, allowing them to roam free without consequence. Many times these cities will ignore detainer requests from federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers, even releasing illegals from jail even after they have been arrested for violent crimes.

Sessions said his department is preparing to give out over $4 billion in federal funds this year, but will prevent any of it from going to cities that openly protect illegal aliens.

>Happy to have AG Sessions at the @WhiteHouse to talk about enforcing US laws to #MakeAmericaSafeAgain https://t.co/YKjHY3aONk

— Sean Spicer (@PressSec) March 27, 2017

“Countless Americans would be alive today if these policies of sanctuary cities were ended,” Sessions said at the White House while speaking about the danger American citizens who live in these cities face.

The Attorney General said he’s carrying out a policy which was presented by the Obama administration last year, but it was never enforced. This policy identified three federal grant programs: Byrne grants, COPS grants and State Criminal Alien Assistance Program money, all of which already require sanctuary certification.

Sessions is simply enforcing existing immigration laws, not creating any new ones.

CONSPIRACY: Did Trump Issue A Secret Memorandum To Allow Suppressed Free Energy Technologies?

According to secret space program whistleblower, Corey Goode, President Donald Trump issued a highly classified Memorandum soon after his January 20th inauguration ordering the release of group of classified patents concerning anti-aging and health, along with free energy technologies. The Top Secret Memorandum was sent to the Department of Defense and the Intelligence Community, and due to its classification status it will not be accessible to major media for reporting.

The information received from Goode comes from a senior official in an interagency secret space program comprising the USAF, NRO, NSA, DIA which he describes as the Military Industrial Complex Secret Space Program (MIC-SSP). The official, whom he calls “Sigmund”, is investigating Goode’s claims and conducting an “information exchange” with Goode in the process (see Part One).

On March 16, Goode briefed me about his ongoing meetings with Sigmund and/or his two subordinates. The information provided by Goode was originally slated for release in an article, “Endgame III”, as the sequel to the popular Endgame II article and video. However due to the urgency of releasing this information without delay, it was passed on to me to get it out now.

In one of his “meetings” with Sigmund (and/or his subordinates) in late January, Goode was told about Trump issuing a Presidential Memorandum to declassify over 1000 patents from a pool of over 5000. Most of the 1000 patents deal with anti-aging and health technologies, yet some deal with material science and biochemistry and a few involve free energy inventions.

These technologies are widely used in a number of secret space programs, and the patents dealing with these have been repressed under national security orders. The USPTO has issued Federal Regulations that govern when patents are classified on the grounds of national security, and subsequently withheld from the general public:

[W]henever the publication or disclosure of an invention by the publication of an application or by the granting of a patent is, in the opinion of the head of an interested Government agency, determined to be detrimental to national security, the Commissioner for Patents at the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) must issue a secrecy order and withhold the grant of a patent for such period as the national interest requires. A patent will not be issued on the application as long as the secrecy order is in force. If a secrecy order is applied to an international application, the application will not be forwarded to the International Bureau as long as the secrecy order is in force.

When a Department of Defense entity or a member of the Intelligence Community consider a patent to be a threat to national security, then the Patents Commissioner will issue a secrecy order preventing the patent from being publicly released.

The current number of patents that have been classified are approximately 5700 according to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), which matches the information given to Goode by Sigmund.

As the above table shows, the number of secret patents that are declassified each year has averaged roughly 0.5 percent annually.

Goode learned that the Pentagon and Intelligence agencies told Trump it would take 10 years to release them, but Trump told them to get it done within two to three years.

Evidence for Trump taking the bold step of declassifying secret patents as quickly as possible can be found in his inauguration speech. Towards the end of his speech, Trump uttered one sentence that contained his most developed vision of the future for America and its citizenry, which would result from the kind of declassification Memorandum Goode was told about. Trump said:

We stand at the birth of a new millennium, ready to unlock the mysteries of space, to free the earth from the miseries of disease, and to harness the energies, industries and technologies of tomorrow.

If Trump succeeds in having over 1000 of these declassified over the next two to three years, it would represent 20% of the total. This would be a staggering average yearly increase of up to 2000 percent over previous years.

Thousands Of Americans Are Fleeing The Big Cities

Why are so many people suddenly moving away from major U.S. cities? Recently, I wrote about the mass exodus that is happening out of the state of California, but the truth is that what is happening there is just part of a national phenomenon.

The populations of some of our largest cities are steadily shrinking, and many experts are completely mystified by the seismic demographic shifts that we are now witnessing. Of course there are a whole host of reasons why people would want to move away from huge cities such as Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore and Cleveland. For some families, it simply comes down to wanting a better life for their children. But as you will see below, there are others that believe that things in this country are about to take an apocalyptic turn, and the big cities will not be a place that you want to be when economic collapse, rioting, looting, civil unrest and crime are all spiraling out of control.

According to data just released by the U.S. Census Bureau, Chicago took the prize for the biggest population loss from 2015 to 2016, and it was followed by Detroit and Baltimore…

The counties containing Chicago, Detroit and the independent city of Baltimore were the biggest population losers in the United States from 2015 to 2016, according to data released today by the Census Bureau.

Cook County, Ill., where Chicago is the county seat, had the largest population loss of any county in the country from 2015 and 2016.

Cook County alone had a “domestic migration” loss of more than 66,000 people. That is a staggering number of people to lose in a single year.

Cleveland and Milwaukee were also very high on the list, and some are pointing out that all of these cities are in relatively colder climates and are all struggling economically.

So you certainly can’t blame people living in these cities for wanting to find somewhere warmer and more economically prosperous to live.

But others that are moving away from large cities are deeply concerned about where things are ultimately headed in this country. It doesn’t take a genius to see that anger, frustration and hatred are rising all around us, and many believe that conditions are ripe for civil unrest and civil conflict. In fact, best-selling author Doug Casey believes that we could soon see a “civil war” that is set off by a “financial collapse”…

Best-selling author Doug Casey wrote “Crisis Investing” at the time when the U.S. political landscape was transitioning from the Carter Administration to the Reagan Administration. Now, Casey sees a coming crisis that is equal or worse than the Civil War. Casey explains, “In the U.S. right now, there seems to be so much antagonism it’s almost like pre-Civil War. There is actually hatred in the U.S. at this point. It used to be the Republicans and Democrats could disagree, but they could have a civil conversation about a difference of opinion. Now, it’s active hatred between these two groups. This is not going to end well.”

Casey thinks the coming financial collapse will be the trigger. Casey says, “It’s going to come down eventually. I am worried about that, but we are in a situation where the country seem like it is just before a civil war. It will be more serious than just a financial collapse, and it is likely to be set off by a financial collapse.”

Without a doubt, our financial system is certainly primed for a financial collapse, and when things get really, really bad in this country how will people respond?

CIA Uses Microsoft DirectX CLSID Exploit As A Keylogger

RELATED: >>>/realnews/2003

LEARN ABOUT OPSEC: >>>/opsec/4

Wikileaks has released a trove of CIA hacking tools that have been highly ignored by the mainstream media. Recent leaks exposed the CIA's capabilities (via planted backdoors) to hack into smart phones, smart TVs, operating systems (from Windows to Linux systems), encrypted apps and even tools to hijack new digitized vehicles!

Now we know that Microsoft has helped the CIA monitor keyboard use by building a backdoor into DirectX registry code!

Keystroke logging, often referred to as keylogging or keyboard capturing, is the action of recording the keys struck on a keyboard, typically covertly, so that the person using the keyboard is unaware that their actions are being monitored.

The Microsoft DirectX library contains a function that can be used to get the state of the keyboard. It is part of the DirectInput API. The code below demonstrates how to poll the keyboard for key state information. Additional logic would have to be added to detect when keys are pressed/released and to convert this to a character.

Note that this requires the Microsoft DirectX SDK to compile.

George Galloway Vows To Return To UK Parliament And Fight Globalism

George Galloway has vowed to make a return to UK politics and take on corrupt globalists in Parliament by running in the upcoming election.

Galloway, who has previously warned that the American ‘deep state’ are out to assassinate President Trump, is keen to tackle human rights and justice for the people of Palestine as well as bring his brand of plain speaking back to the House of Commons.

Following the death last month of Labour MP Gerald Kaufman, rumors are swirling that Galloway may stand in the by-election for his vacated seat in the Manchester Gorton constituency.

Theduran.com reports: http://archive.is/GSanA

Like Kaufman, Galloway is a long time supporter of Palestine. Perhaps even more importantly at a time when the front-benches of all major UK parties are filled by people whose personalities are small and whose ideas are even smaller, Galloway is an international figure who can command audiences from Baltimore to Beirut, Baghdad to the heart of Britain.

Important issues ought to be discussed by heavyweight people and few would argue that Galloway is difficult to ignore in terms of his refined rhetoric and his ability to tackle the big topics of debate without fear or restraint.

He recently produced a film, The Killing$ of Tony Blair about the personal corruption and war profiteering off his arch-nemesis Tony Blair which he has toured around the world. He also hosts a popular radio show and a weekly current affairs programme on RT.

Galloway has opposed western meddling in Iraq, Libya and now Syria. He opposed independence in his native Scotland and campaigned for the winning Brexit campaign, once sharing a platform with Nigel Farage.

Although Galloway has had a long time friendship with current Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, Galloway remains outside of the Labour party ever since Tony Blair expelled him for his strident opposition to the Iraq War, a war which in today’s Britain, hardly any respectable figure could say was a good thing.

Whether one loves him or hates him, politics in any democracy requires figures who can command the respect of an audience and get people to pay attention to the conflicts of the wider world.

George Galloway can certainly do that.

BOOM! Obama’s NSA Illegally Spied on Radio Talk Show Host Michael Savage

RELATED! TRUMP TARGETED: http:// archive.is/0QPMw

RELATED! ARPAIO TARGETED: http:// archive.is/VMRnl

Talk-radio host Michael Savage is among the public figures who were under surveillance by the National Security Agency as part of its “Project Dragnet,” according to a database revealed by an agency whistleblower.

Jerome Corsi, an investigative reporter for Infowars.com, told Savage on “The Savage Nation” radio show Monday that one of Savage’s email addresses was discovered in the database.

Infowars.com said the database has evidence of spying on U.S. citizens from 2004 to 2010, but Corsi told Savage there is no indication the surveillance has stopped.

It shows Donald J. Trump and Infowars founder Alex Jones also were under illegal, unauthorized government monitoring during those years.

Infowars.com obtained sections of the database from Michael Zullo, formerly the chief investigator of the Cold Case Posse, a special investigative unit in the office of Joseph Arpaio, the former sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona.

Project Dragnet was first revealed by news reports in 2005 and further documented by the revelations of whistleblower Edward Snowden in 2013.

Corsi told Savage he discovered the database included some 50 entries for Donald Trump and his businesses and family members.

“They were all over Donald Trump starting in 2004, when the database starts,” he said.

Corsi said, regarding Savage, that he found two “solid hits” in the database in 2004 and 2005, which was during the time of the George W. Bush administration.

“Anybody who was prominent at that point, the NSA was going after to collect data. And it was not necessarily at the direction of George W. Bush. They were doing it on their own initiative,” Corsi told Savage.

Last Tuesday, as WND reported, the day of the launch of his new book, “Trump’s War: His Battle for America,” Savage was violently attacked at a San Francisco-area restaurant by a man who appeared to have been politically motivated.

In his interview with Corsi Monday, Savage noted that, legally, Americans cannot be spied upon without a judge’s order from a FISA court.

“That’s the way it’s supposed to be,” Corsi affirmed. “But these millions of entries, it’s impossible for me to believe they went to get FISA rulings on any of these.”

Why would the government do this? Savage asked.

“Well, just to have it available. Just in case they decided that they were going to, in any way, go after you or blackmail you, or just create a profile.”

Corsi said a full congressional investigation is necessary, calling it “an enormous, flagrant violation of your rights and everyone in that database, which are millions of Americans.”

BOOM! Obama’s NSA Illegally Spied on Sheriff Arpaio’s Prosecution

RELATED: >>>/aa/21

While the Department of Justice was prosecuting Sheriff Arpaio from 2008 to 2010, the NSA conducted electronic surveillance of the various Arizona judges on the case, on Sheriff Arpaio, and on the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office, while the DOJ attorneys for Eric Holder maintained an on-going telephone back-channel discussion with the federal judge assigned to handle the case.

A timeline of the Arpaio civil rights case, created with the assistance of the Operation Dragnet whistleblower and made public in a federal hearing that disseminated the timeline to the public, was provided to Infowars.com, and is reproduced in full here:

http://archive.is/IJHOc

https://www.infowars.com/bombshell-obama-illegally-spied-on-sheriff-arpaios-prosecution/

The timeline released in federal court details NSA electronic surveillance and DOJ judge-tampering in the civil rights case brought against Arpaio in 2008, involving the 2007 arrest of Manuel de Jesús Ortega Melendres, with the DOJ charging Arpaio with discriminating against Hispanics by implementing car-stop procedures DOJ considered to involve racial-profiling.

Infowars.com is currently taking steps to bring this information before the White House, Congress and the DOJ, alleging the Obama administration in prosecuting Sheriff Arpaio has engaged in extensive illegal and unconstitutional electronic surveillance undertaken by the DOJ and NSA working secretly together.

Infowars.com is also concerned DOJ intervened in Sheriff Arpaio’s case, communicating with the judge and various national law firms involved in the case in a pattern that would suggest judge-tampering aimed at insuring Sheriff Arpaio’s conviction.

The case against Arpaio in Arizona was orchestrated from Washington by Tom Perez, a lawyer with a La Raza activist background and the current DNC Chairman, who in 2008 was the Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division of the DOJ under Attorney General Eric Holder.

On April 24, Arpaio – aged 84, with a decades-long career in law enforcement that includes 23 years as Arizona’s Maricopa County Sheriff, became the defendant a jury trial, charged with criminal-contempt in the Melendres case and facing the possibility of six months in jail if found guilty.

The timeline alleges NSA electronic surveillance of Federal Judge G. Murray Snow – the judge presiding over the original DOJ civil rights case brought against Arpaio in 2008/2009, when the NSA taped a conversation between the DOJ and Judge Snow, on July 20, 2009.

That day, Judge Snow – a judge known to have made prejudicial comments against Arpaio in public – was assigned to preside in the Arpaio case, after Judge Mary Murguia recused herself five days earlier.

Is The White House Turning on Disgraced RINO Speaker Paul Ryan? They Should Be!

Let’s face it; Speaker Paul Ryan has done absolutely NOTHING to earn the trust of President Trump.

As a matter of fact, he’s done everything in his power to erode their relationship.

During the 2016 election, Paul Ryan constantly criticized Donald Trump, and it’s been rumored that he was part of the “Access Hollywood” tape release, designed to bring Trump down and hand the win to Hillary.

Furthermore, Speaker Paul Ryan is a globalist.

President Trump’s America First agenda is the polar opposite of the speaker’s beliefs.

Where Trump wants a border wall, Ryan wants a broken fence.

Where Trump wants travel restrictions, Ryan wants more refugees.

So, when Speaker Paul Ryan botched the Obamacare replacement, after having 7 years to come up with a viable solution, was that President Trump’s final straw? It may have been.

Or, perhaps it was the next day when this headline from Speaker Ryan appeared, sabotaging President Trump’s tax reform before it even gets started.

As GOP House members call for the speaker to step down, the White House now appears to be distancing themselves from the disgraced and failed speaker.

Hours before Judge Jeanine took to the airwaves to lambaste Ryan and demand he step down, President Trump tweeted this:

>Watch @JudgeJeanine on @FoxNews tonight at 9:00 P.M.

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 25, 2017

When asked about Ryan’s fate as speaker, White House spokesman Sean Spicer did not come to his aid.

Instead, he simply stated that Ryan’s fate was up to members of the house.

A House who is grumbling loudly about needing leadership change.

The bottom line is this – Paul Ryan is not a member of the “Trump Train,” and he never will be.

Mainstream Media Continues To Spread Insanity And Disinfo After Ryan's "Obamacare Lite" Bill Pulled

Mainstream Media Continues To Spread Insanity And Disinfo After Ryan's "Obamacare Lite" Bill Pulled

https://archive.fo/UZ753

https://jonrappoport.wordpress.com/2017/03/26/healthcare-bill-defeated-the-world-ends/

Reuters: “In the past few years, the House has voted more than 60 times to repeal or alter Obamacare, but Republicans had no hope a repeal would become law as long as Obama was president and could veto their bills.”

But now that the new version of national health insurance has failed to pass in Congress ONCE, well, according to press accounts, obviously the world is over. Mountains are falling into the sea. An asteroid just struck the Pacific Ocean. And oh yes, Trump is finished.

On top of the world ending, there is this: no one seems to know exactly what is in the new bill that just failed; Congress had to pass it to read it.

NEW HEALTHCARE BILL WHICH NO ONE HAS READ FAILS TO PASS; WORLD ENDS.

This lunacy is one of a string of lunacies since Trump was elected. If you believe the press, his reign has already ended a hundred times. It ended when somebody said somebody else had proof Trump desecrated a hotel room in Russia where Obama once stayed. It ended when Michael Flynn talked to a Russian on the phone. It ended when Trump allowed a few non-mainstream reporters into press conferences, and it ended when he excluded a few mainstream reporters from a press gaggle. It ended when a judge, ruling on behalf of all America, decided Trump’s EO limiting immigration should be temporarily suspended. It ended when the CIA implied Trump was a Russian agent. It ended when somebody on The View said he should be impeached.

Of course, it had already ended, during the campaign, when George Clooney said Trump would never become president, and when Alec Baldwin said he hated Trump. It ended when Hillary “won” the first debate.

Since the attention span of half of America is about as long as a kitten’s, all beginnings and endings must happen very quickly. There is no time to waste.

“Isn’t Hillary the president now? Didn’t we already have another election? Isn’t Trump in prison? Hasn’t global warming taken away the coastline of America?”

Trump must be out of the White House by now and in handcuffs, because Twitter has had a hundred thousand tweets demanding it. The final judgement.

Newspapers and broadcast networks are fighting over who can assess Congress’ failure to pass a new healthcare bill as the greatest possible humiliation for Trump.

THE TRAVEL BAN IS BACK! Judge Sides With Trump Administration, Declares Travel Ban EO Legal

Sponsored by >>>/goodnews/

A federal judge in Virginia ruled Friday against blocking President Trump’s executive order that called for temporarily stopping the entry of immigrants from six majority-Muslim nations and refugee admittance overall.

The decision against the injunction comes after federal judges in Maryland and Hawaii blocked the implementation of Trump’s executive order nationwide. The ruling in Maryland is set to be heard before an appeals court in May. These two past decisions keep the order at bay.

Judge Anthony Trenga of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia found that Trump was within his legal rights to impose the travel ban and that it was not discriminatory toward Muslims. The injunction had been brought forward by Palestinian activist Linda Sarsour, who was represented by an attorney from the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

Trenga, a George W. Bush appointee, wrote in his opinion that “the President has unqualified authority to bar physical entry to the United States at the border.” He said that the executive order makes no mention of religion and has a “state secular purpose” of protecting U.S. citizens from terrorist attacks.

The Hawaiian federal judge who knocked down the executive order cited past statements from Trump on the campaign trail talking about a “Muslim ban.” Judge Trenga, however, wrote, “In that regard, the Supreme Court has held that ‘past actions [do not] forever taint any effort on [the government’s] part to deal with the subject matter.'”

A Department of Justice spokeswoman said in a statement, “The Department of Justice is pleased with the ruling. As the Court correctly explains, the President’s Executive Order falls well within his authority to safeguard the nation’s security.”

Senate votes to let ISPs sell your Web browsing history to advertisers

ISP now stands for "invading subscriber privacy," Democratic senator says

The US Senate today voted to eliminate broadband privacy rules that would have required ISPs to get consumers' explicit consent before selling or sharing Web browsing data and other private information with advertisers and other companies.

The rules were approved in October 2016 by the Federal Communications Commission's then-Democratic leadership, but are opposed by the FCC's new Republican majority and Republicans in Congress. The Senate today used its power under the Congressional Review Act to ensure that the FCC rulemaking "shall have no force or effect" and to prevent the FCC from issuing similar regulations in the future.

The House, also controlled by Republicans, would need to vote on the measure before the privacy rules are officially eliminated. President Trump could also preserve the privacy rules by issuing a veto. If the House and Trump agree with the Senate's action, ISPs won't have to seek customer approval before sharing their browsing histories and other private information with advertisers.

The Senate measure was introduced two weeks ago by Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) and 23 Republican co-sponsors. Flake said at the time that he is trying to "protect consumers from overreaching Internet regulation."

"FLAKE" was payed alot of money by comcast

The Senate action "would allow Comcast, Verizon, Charter, AT&T, and other broadband providers to take control away from consumers and relentlessly collect and sell their sensitive information without the consent of that family," Markey said. That sensitive information includes health and financial information, and information about children, he said. ISPs want to "draw a map" of where families shop and go to school, and sell it to data brokers "or anyone else who wants to make a profit off you," Markey said.

"Your home broadband provider can know when you wake up each day—either by knowing the time each morning that you log on to the Internet to check the weather/news of the morning, or through a connected device in your home," Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.). "And that provider may know immediately if you are not feeling well—assuming you decide to peruse the Internet like most of us to get a quick check on your symptoms. In fact, your broadband provider may know more about your health—and your reaction to illness—than you are willing to share with your doctor."

They then can direct you to a Corporate drug web site

"This is a gold mine of data—the holy grail so to speak," Nelson said. "It is no wonder that broadband providers want to be able to sell this information to the highest bidder without consumers’ knowledge or consent. And they want to collect and use this information without providing transparency or being held accountable."

There Will Be Those Who Perish In the Next Crisis, And Those “Who Survive In Underground Luxury”

Ultimately, no one can stop what is coming.

The haves and have nots of the next, gritty era of aftermath will be those who have the means to survive when the system has failed, and those who do not.

For the wealthy, and prepper minded elite, hidden fortified layers purchased for insurance will preserve most of the luxuries of life above ground, and in the cities, even as society crumbles and burns to the ground.

Others, without the means to purchase these luxuries, may have still set aside the necessary materials to live and thrive after a great collapse, where anything and everything from the electric grid, to the fuel supply to the food supply will fail.

There will be tens of millions of starving, angry and bewildered people who face endangerment and extinction, and there will be a few who succeed not only in planning ahead, but in laying low enough to avoid being noticed and picked off by looters, marauders and misguided authorities.

Finding the perfect location for your redoubt, and making your preps to get away if need be, amount to something of an art and a science. Nothing is guaranteed, everything has its advantages and disadvantaged, but just by doing anything at all, you’ll be way ahead of the masses.

If the plans of the elite are anything to consider, they have decked out their bunkers with mementos and reminders of normal life, and not only enough to supplies not to feel the pain of a crumbling infrastructure, but to be distracted by the illusion of normalcy even in times of ultimate crisis.

But ultimately, all successful redoubts invest in the means to provide for long-term survival and maximum self-sufficiency.

France’s Le Pen Says The EU Dictatorship ‘Will Die’, Communist/Fascist Globalists To Be Defeated

The European Union will disappear, French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen told a rally on Sunday, promising to shield France from globalisation as she sought to fire up her supporters in the final four weeks before voting gets underway.

Buoyed by the unexpected election of Donald Trump in the United States and by Britain’s vote to leave the EU, the leader of the eurosceptic and anti-immigrant National Front (FN) party, told the rally in Lille that the French election would be the next step in what she called a global rebellion of the people.

“The European Union will die because the people do not want it anymore … arrogant and hegemonic empires are destined to perish,” Le Pen said to loud cheers and applause.

“The time has come to defeat globalists,” she said, accusing her main rivals, centrist Emmanuel Macron and conservative Francois Fillon, of “treason” for their pro-EU, pro-market policies.

Opinion polls forecast that Le Pen will do well in the April 23 first round of the presidential election only to lose the May 7 run-off to Macron.

Its opposition to the EU and the euro currency underlines an anti-establishment stance that pleases the FN's grassroots supporters and attracts voters angry with globalisation. But it is also likely to be an obstacle to power in a country where a majority oppose a return to the franc.

Le Pen has over the past few months tried to tackle this by criticizing the unpopular EU while telling voters she would not abruptly pull France out of the bloc or the euro but instead hold a referendum after six months of renegotiating the terms of France's EU membership.

On Sunday, while predicting the EU's demise, she was careful to say she would seek to replace it with "another Europe," which she called "the Europe of the people", based on a loose cooperative of nations.

"It must be done in a rational, well-prepared way," she told Le Parisien daily in an interview. "I don't want chaos. Within the negotiation calendar I want to carry out … the euro would be the last step because I want to wait for the outcome of elections in Germany in the autumn before renegotiating it."

Reacting to Le Pen's comments on the death of the EU, France's ambassador to the United States, Gerard Araud, tweeted: "That'll be the real significance of the French elections: the survival or the demise of the EU. A quasi-referendum."

CUCKS GONNA CUCK! NYC RINOs Pay $38,000 To Welcome Anti-Trump Democrat Schumer As Guest Of Honor

Two New York City Republican big-shots paid $38,000 for a dinner honoring anti-Trump Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer, while anti-Trump protesters are quickly turning New York City into a place where supporting President Donald J. Trump will lead to violence.

Thursday night, March 9, 2017, establishment New Yorkers gathered to honor the vocally anti-Trump Democratic Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer at the Citizen’s Budget Commission’s 85th Annual Dinner after a hard-fought 2016 national election cycle. The elite event was held at The Pierre, an iconic hotel overlooking Central Park, that has been home to President-elect Richard Nixon, Aristotle Onassis, Elizabeth Taylor, and Yves Saint-Laurent.

Among the members of the organization’s Board of Trustees, and therefore expected to contribute a minimum of $16,000 to this year’s annual trustee dinner honoring Senator Chuck Schumer is Peter C. Hein. Hein is an attorney with the white glove New York law firm Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen, and Katz. Hein is also a current board member and a former president of the anti-Trump, scandal-plagued Metropolitan Republican Club.

On January 31, 2017, Hein, a corporate attorney to prominent Fortune 500 clients, regarded for his attention to professionalism, unethically helped purge five Trump supporters from the board of the Republican club in violation of club bylaws, in what has been referred to by some observers as a “Trump purge.” Hein, along with numerous others, as a trustee and member of the Met Club, additionally double-voted that night with both a standing vote on the floor of the assembly and with a proxy vote. Hein, most surprisingly of all, has rigorously fought any attempt to audit the financial records of the Met Club, a move that has caused considerable dismay at the century-old, Upper East Side club, which some claim is falling into disrepair and cannot raise funds from interested donors as a result of the lack of the most rudimentary audit. Suspiciously, the lack of audits go all the way back to Hein’s time as club president, leading some to wonder what Hein is trying to hide.

“How nice of him to give $16,000 to honor Schumer at the Pierre. Our club actually used to have our annual trustee dinners at the Pierre too before Peter Hein and his ilk ruined this club,” said one Met Club board member upon learning about Hein’s role at the CBC dinner, “We used to be able to pull in that kind of money until Peter Hein put an end to the audits as if this place were his slush fund.”

Hein, it was later learned, in fact acted as a “Trustee Vice-Chair” for the dinner, contributing $22,000 rather than the minimum $16,000 required of a CBC Trustee.

Over the past year in the midst of the Trump Purge, Metropolitan Republican Club membership has fallen by nearly 20%. Current leadership at the Republican club, led by club President Deb Coughlin has come under fire for their strong support for Democratic politicians and extreme left-wing politics.

Jihadi John Has Become A Soros Establishment NWO Lackey

By now almost everyone has heard about Senator John McCain attacking a fellow member of the Senate, Rand Paul, for disagreeing with him and blocking an attempt to vote on a treaty for NATO membership for Montenegro, where McCain said Senator Paul was "working for Vladimir Putin." In response Paul was asked about those comments and called McCain "unhinged" saying McCain was past his prime and makes a "strong case for term limits."

For those that have not seen these exchanges, you can see both McCain's comments and Rand's response below, but beneath that I will explain why McCain is not "unhinged," but rather is actively working against America's best interest after taking into account his support for Jihadis, via supposed "Syrian rebels," who in turn come back and attack America and his ties to George Soros blood money and attempts to destabilize America in a variety of ways.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zCT21jCFsXg

It was reported in early February 2017, by Breitbart News, that some top anti-Trump Republicans had received donations from an employee of a hedge fund that was founded by George Soros, which easily could have just been a conservative leaning employee who simply preferred other candidates than Trump, nothing real sinister there, but in that same article we see that John McCain, in the past, has received a "direct" donation from Soros himself, as well from others with the firm.

McCain’s $2,500 this cycle came from Donfeld of Soros Fund Management on Sept. 23, 2015. In previous cycles, McCain has taken cash directly from George Soros himself—a $1,000 donation on June 2, 1999—and from others with the firm, including a $1,000 donation from Bessent on March 13, 2000, a $2,300 donation from Soros Fund Management’s Michael Au on Dec. 27, 2007, a $1,000 donation from Duncan Hennes of Soros Fund Management on March 13, 2000, and a $2,300 donation from Soros Fund Management’s Joshua Berkowitz on Jan. 15, 2008. McCain’s spokeswoman, Julie Tarallo, has not responded to multiple requests for comment from Breitbart News.

While a few donations here and there are not a smoking gun, so to speak, a look at McCain's support of issues that endanger America, issues where he definitely sided with the Soros agenda, starts to build a picture that forces us to ask, what has happened to John McCain to turn him into Jihadi John?

Immigration: A look at his stance on immigration as well as the very public displays of anger over the issue, absolutely proves he is a pro-amnesty Senator, where he sided with the late Ted Kennedy on immigration reform which would provide amnesty to what was over 11 million immigrants at the time.

- In 2005, Senators John McCain & Ted Kennedy proposed a guest-worker program & a path to citizenship for many illegal immigrants. Both sides torpedoed the efforts. Opposition to the bill from the right was based primarily on demands to secure the border.

It wasn't until a challenger for his senate seat highlighted McCain's support for amnesty for illegal aliens that McCain changed his tune, but as shown by the site On The Issues, his anger at having to do so was made very clear:

In the face of Hayworth's challenge, McCain abandoned his longtime support for comprehensive immigration reform that would recognize reality and provide an eventual path to citizenship for the 11 million illegal aliens already living in the country. Instead, he offered full-throated backing for the border fence he once mocked–"Complete the danged fence!," he demanded in an ad–and sought political cover in the form of an endorsement by his former running mate, Sarah Palin. [Prior to 2004], McCain went to work with Democrats such as the late Ted Kennedy to bring sanity, and humanity, to the nation's long-running debate over illegal immigration. In 2006, I watched McCain tell a group of sensible, blue-suited Republican businessmen in Milwaukee, who asked about immigration, "By the way, I think the fence is least effective. But I'll build the g*ddamned fence if they want it."

In 2007, former president George Bush and John McCain were pushing for amnesty for illegal aliens, standing once again beside Ted Kennedy to announce his support, while criticizing Republicans that were against amnesty.

Good! Iran's Supreme Leader Decries Gender Equality as a Zionist Plot That Westerners Are Regreting

Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei is no fan of gender equality, which he routinely decries as a Western concept that damages women and distracts them from their vital roles as wives and mothers.

And again this week, at a speech on March 19 marking the birth of the daughter of the Prophet Muhammad, Fatima Zahra, Khamenei doubled down, suggesting that Westerners themselves are having second thoughts.

"Today, Western thinkers and those who pursue issues such as gender equality regret the corruption that it has brought about," said the man who has the final say in religious and political matters in a country of 83 million people.

"Making women a commodity and an object of gratification in the Western world is most likely among the Zionist plots aiming to destroy society," Khamenei was also quoted as saying.

Khamenei suggested that Western views of women used to be "more decent," "more prudent," and "more suitable" with "the nature of men and women."

"When you look at the literature in European countries in the 18th and 19th centuries, it was absolutely different from the 20th century," Khamenei said. He added that "it is obvious that there has been political work from the Zionist system."

Khamenei has said in the past that the effort to establish equality between men and women was "one of the biggest intellectual mistakes" of the Western world. "Why should a job that is masculine be given to a woman? What kind of honor is it for a woman to do a man's job?"

American Sluts Fight For Right To Attract Sexual Attention In Public

As marriage rates plummet and Millennial men continue living with their single mothers and retreating into video games, American feminists are eager to employ new sexual strategies in public in the hopes of securing a husband and avoiding cat lady syndrome.

In Ohio, the Lakewood city school district revised its dress code last year following complaints that it had outdated and sexist elements.

Tight-fitting trousers, including leggings and yoga pants, went from being banned to permitted, but only if "the garment worn on top covers the buttocks".

REAL Portals To HELL! Researchers Are Diving In!

REAL Portals To HELL! Researchers Are Diving In — Linking the Visible World With the ‘Dark World’

https://archive.fo/ecXMi

http://lisahaven.news/2017/03/real-portals-to-hell-researchers-are-diving-in-linking-the-visible-world-with-dark-world/

Warning! You are about to embark on a journey into something a bit creepy. Researchers, doctors, and others are in the process of studying the paranormal phenomenon of portals that could link the visible world with the “dark sector.” While there is no mention of exactly what these “dark sectors” contains, one could only recall the biblical account found in the book of Revelation that prophecies about a future event of the opening of the very pits of hell:

“Then the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star from heaven which had fallen to the earth; and the key of the bottomless pit was given to him. He opened the bottomless pit, and smoke went up out of the pit, like the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by the smoke of the pit. Then out of the smoke came locusts upon the earth, and power was given them, as the scorpions of the earth have power. They were told not to hurt the grass of the earth, nor any green thing, nor any tree, but only the men who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads. And they were not permitted to kill anyone, but to torment for five months; and their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it stings a man. And in those days men will seek death and will not find it; they will long to die, and death flees from them.The appearance of the locusts was like horses prepared for battle; and on their heads appeared to be crowns like gold, and their faces were like the faces of men.They had hair like the hair of women, and their teeth were like the teeth of lions. They had breastplates like breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was like the sound of chariots, of many horses rushing to battle.They have tails like scorpions, and stings; and in their tails is their power to hurt men for five months.They have as king over them, the angel of the abyss; his name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in the Greek he has the name Apollyon. Revelation 9:1-11

A new study by researchers from the Institute of Basic Science (IBS) in South Korea reveals all the above and more. Here’s the breaking report…

https://journals.aps.org/prl/abstract/10.1103/PhysRevLett.118.101802

Long ago, physicists identified and categorized the components of the visible universe. Up until recently, 16 particles formed everything in the known universe. But now, thanks to the efforts of physicists at CERN working with the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), we have added another particle, the Higgs boson, to the Standard Model of physics.

However, there is an entire hidden — or dark — aspect of physics and our natural world for which the Standard Model just can’t account, even with the Higgs boson. To put it plainly, all of the matter that is visible is not enough for the universe to behave as it does.

There has to be some kind of invisible matter and energy making all of what we can see possible. To account for this mystery, scientists theorized that there must be Dark Matter and Dark Energy. These would be made up of a completely different set of particles that we have yet to discover, probably because we simply do not know how to study them.

A new study by researchers from the Institute of Basic Science (IBS) in South Korea suggests that we have found the way to bridge the gap between the visible world and the dark sector of physics — portals.

Man, 98, Survived Lung Cancer WITHOUT Any Chemo For 30 Years... Just By Eating Healthy!

RELATED: >>>/rationalnews/43

When Greek native Stamatis Moraitis was living in the United States, he was diagnosed with lung cancer and told he had just nine months to live. At the time, he was in his mid-sixties.

Here's a glimpse at his timeline, but don't worry about breaking out a box of tissues: six months into his journey, he started feeling significantly better. Twenty five years later, when he went to visit his U.S. doctors during a trip from his native Greek Island, Ikaria, he learned that his doctors had died. Today, he's living life to the fullest as a vibrant 98-year old.

Fresh, healthy foods key to combating cancer

His secret? In addition to surrounding himself with loving relationships with friends and family and getting plenty of exercise, he plants foods in his own garden and tends to his olive grove daily. He is cancer-free, simply because of the lifestyle he lives in Greece, and his choice to shun chemotherapy, drugs or any kind of therapy.

Mind-body medicine physician and founder of the Whole Health Medicine Institute training program, Dr. Lissa Rankin fully believes that people can learn from Moraitis. She suggests taking a cue from people like him who have lived long, healthy lives, especially in the face of a life-threatening illness.

One of her top suggestions is to "Eat plants, avoid animal products, consume lots of olive oil, avoid processed foods . . . " and to stay surrounded by like-minded people.

Best foods to help fight lung cancer

While most fresh fruits and vegetables have nutrients that are good for the body, certain ones in particular stand out when it comes to fighting off lung cancer.

According to the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, people who ate apples regularly had a 60 percent lower risk of lung cancer compared to those who did not consume the flavonoid-rich fruit.

Other foods linked to lung cancer prevention include cruciferous vegetables such as kale, cabbage and broccoli.

Olive oil, a large part of a Mediterranean diet, has also been shown to reduce the risk of cancers ranging from colon cancers to breast cancer. Consumption of extra-virgin olive oil daily can essentially deactivate cancer cells that try to survive and destroy the body. It's been shown effective in keeping a range of cancers at bay, from breast cancers to stomach cancers.

WE ARE FUCKED! Mad Engineers Create Cameras ‘Smaller Than Sand’ Which Can Film Our Every Move

When you read this, you'll be wishing this was fake news!

Micro Cameras No Larger Than Grains of Sand Will Soon Blanket Society… Privacy is HISTORY

Researchers at the Univerisy of Stuttgart have developed a new type of ‘smart dust’ miniature camera smaller than the size of a grain of sand.

Experts say the German camera, created using new 3D printing techniques, will allow scientists to see humans in the most intricate detail than ever before.

Newstarget.com reports: http://archive.is/XZH97

Experts say the ingenious technique provides sub-micrometer accuracy that enables users to 3D print optical systems containing four lenses. The resulting multi-lens system provides an opportunity to help correct aberration, a condition where lenses fail to bring all wavelengths of color to a single focal point, which in turn may facilitate higher quality imaging from smaller devices, researchers added.

The researchers developed the 3D lenses by blasting a light-sensitive material onto a glass substrate with a femtosecond laser, which has pulse durations shorter than 100 femtoseconds. The material then absorbed two photons that exposed it and crosslinked polymers within the material. The unexposed material was washed using a solvent, leaving the hardened, crosslinked polymer that will then serve as the optical element.

The resulting lens’ diameter measures about 120 millionths of a meter, which makes it easily as small as a grain of table salt. The lenses can go from wide to narrow and may provide low to high image resolutions. Each of the lenses has a specific line of sight – clear at the center, blurry at the sides – capped by a curvature at the end. This mechanism mimics how the fovea, the small depression in the middle of the retina, collects light, and how the brain connects images from both eyes to come up with a single, distinct picture.

The innovative method will enable a variety of designs to undergo testing to come up with high-quality images. Researchers also noted that because it is printed in one piece the lens is easier to configure. Any configuration that was designed on a computer can be readily printed and used, researchers stated. The lens can also be printed onto image sensors aside from fiber optics.

The imaging method allowed researchers to print components for optical microscopes measuring 125 micrometers, and attach them to a 1.7m thin optical fiber. The camera at the end of this small endoscope has the capacity to focus on images from a distance of 0.12 in. The entire imaging system fits perfectly inside a syringe needle, which opens possibilities for direct delivery to various organs including the brain. Researchers said future uses of this highly miniaturized camera system may include less-invasive body imaging.

Experts cite initial limitations of the camera

To further assess the various applications of the lens, the developers also printed it onto a CMOS image chip in order to come up with a tiny sensor. Researchers noted that the manufacturing mechanism was fast, and may eventually translate into smaller camera drones. “The time from the idea, the optics design, a CAD model, to the finished, 3D-printed micro-objectives is going to be less than a day. We are going to open potentials just like computer-aided design and computer-integrated manufacturing did in mechanical engineering a few years ago,” said Professor Harald Giessen, from the University of Stuttgart’s 4th Physics Institute.

“Further improvements would include antireflection coatings on the lenses, either by coatings or by nanostructuring; the use of triplets or more lens elements for aberration correction; and the inclusion of absorbing aperture stops. With fabrication times of 1 to 2 hours for one objective lens, cheap high-volume manufacturing is difficult at the moment. However, printing just the shell and a lamellar supporting frame and direct ultraviolet curing can reduce the fabrication time… ” researchers added.

The research was published in the Nature Photonics journal: advances.sciencemag.org/content/advances/3/2/e1602655.full.pdf

U.S. Sorority Alpha Chi Omega to Immediately Accept 'Any and All' Transsexual Women

March 24, 2017 — The national council of the sorority Alpha Chi Omega has announced that it will begin to accept any and all transgender women effective immediately.

A video announcement was released via the national organization’s Facebook page.

The video, starring Angela Costley Harris, national council president, addressed the decision to accept transgender women into the sorority. Harris emphasizes in the video how the change was brought upon by chapters across the nation and was not a move made solely by the national council. The comments on the video were mostly positive.

Laura Jacob Knobel, a recent college graduate, commented on the Facebook video, “So proud to be an Alpha Chi Omega today! Thank you to our National Council members and all who contributed to this decision.”

Older members also voiced their support on Facebook.

“I’m soon to be a 50-year member and I’ve never been more proud to be an Alpha Chi!” Sue Lance commented.

Others commented, expressing concern over the decision, mainly regarding sorority housing.

“I wholeheartedly disagree with this decision. Will you be allowing these men to live in the Alpha Chi houses and at the same time not allowing other men to visit at late hours?” Kerry Ann Gilmour said. Her comment received a slew of replies, many of which expressed similar concerns.

Becca Miller, vice president of recruitment for the Zeta Psi chapter at Loyola University, said that this decision has been in the works since 2008.

Chapters across the nation have repeatedly requested information from the national council regarding the status of LGBT individuals as members. These requests led to lengthy deliberation by the national council, which ultimately led to the release of the Facebook video

in February.

A summary of the decision, provided by Miller, notes that Alpha Chi Omega intends to use this opportunity to be inclusive and empowering to all women.

“We like to use our phrase ‘Real. Strong. Women,’ and that applies to everyone who is a woman, who lives and identifies as a woman,” Miller said. “Giving these fellow women a chance to grow and empower themselves in our sorority, and others as well, is advancing the culture

of women.”

The video also makes clear that this decision was not about any research or study groups, but entirely made based on requests from chapters.

Charlotte Preuss, vice president of public relations and marketing for Alpha Chi Omega’s Zeta Psi chapter, is one of many members who are thrilled over the announcement.

“I am not only excited, but also honored to be a part of an organization that recognizes the importance of acceptance and the value of each individual,” Preuss said. “Alpha Chi Omega opening its doors to all transgender individuals shows not only immense character, but also an overwhelming respect for all women.”

Miller said she is encouraged by this decision and the reactions that she has seen so far.

“I can’t speak for every single member, but from what I’ve seen on social media they have been really supportive of national’s decision and kind of excited; it’s a huge step in equality for transgender women,” Miller said.

The next recruitment season for the Zeta Psi chapter will begin at the start of the fall 2017 semester.

Soviet Style Repression Against Russian Citizens Demonstrating Against Corruption

Thousands of Russian citizens took to the streets on Sunday to protest against corruption before (((Kremlin))) police rounded up hundreds of people for arrest, including Russian politician Alexei Navalny who was recently attacked with a chemical substance on his face, turning it green.

The Kremlin said on Friday that plans for the central Moscow protest, which the city's authorities had rejected, were an illegal provocation.

As evening drew in, hundreds of riot police lined up on Manezh Square at the end of Tverskaya Street and drove protesters away from the Kremlin's walls. Some opposition supporters on Manezh Square shouted "(((Putin))) is a thief" as tourists wandered nearby.

Local media reported that large protests also took place in other cities, including St Petersburg and Novosibirsk. (((State media))) broadly ignored Sunday's protests.

Russian Lawmaker Compares EU To Soviet Union... And Perhaps He's Correct...

The European Union of today can be compared to the Soviet Union in its late years, said Pyotr Tolstoy, Russia’s State Duma (lower house of parliament) Deputy Speaker, who is currently on a visit to Serbia’s capital of Belgrade.

The Russian lawmaker, who is taking part in the events honoring the victims of NATO bombings against Yugoslavia, added that the policies pursued by the EU had no future.

"Today, the European Union is reminiscent of the Soviet Union nearing its collapse, when not a single decision could be made without consulting with the supreme authorities, while the bureaucratic machine did not take into account any national interests. We all know what it led to," Tolstoy said.

"Of course, we do not wish our European neighbors to suffer such fate but we should not expect them to offer the fulfillment of dreams to other peoples," the State Duma deputy speaker noted. According to him, "until now, they have not offered the world anything but the consumer society and the protection for the LGBT community."

At the same time, in Tolstoy’s words, Russia became "the enemy of the West" because it offers an alternative to the western civilization as well as a different value system. "We do that with all respect for international law. But it annoys them. They are particularly sensitive to what is happening in Syria and Ukraine," the Russian lawmaker added.

"However, Russia is returning to the global stage and they will have to live with it," Tolstoy stressed. Moreover, the West will have to review its attitude towards Russia, he said. "Even the statements made by (US President Donald) Trump that every country has the right to act based on its interests rather than be led by others, mark a major change in the globalist way of thinking common among the Clintons, Obama and the like," Tolstoy concluded.

Michigan Muslims Horrified When They See What Fed-Up Residents Have Hidden....

Muslims are on edge after finding out what American citizens have hidden in their local coffee shop. To a typical American, there would be no alarm, but for the Muslims? They’re freaking out.

When a Dearbornistan Muslim woman walked into a local Starbucks, she thought it would be just another day chatting with a barista and not having any bacon on her breakfast sandwich. That’s when things took a turn for the strange.

A man who worked there tried to convince her to remove her burka. Then he showed her something he was holding behind the counter. At first, she was nervous to see it. But then he pulled it out and it was shocking – she couldn’t even handle it.

He showed her a Christian Bible and she began to get nervous. The man tried to show her similarities in the Christian religion and Islam and wanted her to remove the headscarf and convert away from Islam.

She left the Starbucks with a bitter taste in her mouth after finding out the man was a missionary.

Right in her own Dearbornistan, a dreaded Christian man trying to convert people to the opposing side of the Crusades. It’s like trying to convince Larry Bird to play for the Chicago Bulls – it won’t ever happen.

The Muslim residents in Dearbornistan, the town with the biggest wave of Muslims in America, has now been a bit edgy ever since they learned about the secret missionaries hidden throughout their town.

Funny how that works, because the American citizens have felt a certain way since they’ve invaded Dearborn and now it no longer resembles an American city. It’s becoming to look a lot like the Middle East. Sure, there’s American construction, homes, and shops – but where are the Americans?

What has Dearborn become?

Will the missionaries restore Dearborn?

Treasonous Satanic Globalist Deep State Is Doing Everything They Can To Undermine Trump, America

From the Washington Post to Infowars the game is on, we are officially in open warfare as Trump-Russia probe erupts across the country. The literal game of “human” chess has commenced. Who will survive? Will it be the loony ultra-left or the patriots in America who just want their damn country back!

All that and more in this report: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bSG07pNMxGk

There’s a war breaking out in the House Intelligence Committee over the unfolding Russia scandal. And in a weird way, the evident desire of the chairman of that committee to protect President Trump may only be increasing Trump’s problems.

Today brought some new developments in the saga when Intel Committee Chair Devin Nunes and ranking Democrat Adam Schiff held dueling news conferences. Nunes took what appear to be new steps to shield the committee’s investigation — into Russian meddling and possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign — from public view, and Schiff issued some scalding criticism of Nunes that has really pushed hostilities to a higher level.

On Wednesday, Nunes made an extraordinary visit to the White House to brief the president on new information he said he’d received showing that intelligence agencies had, in the course of surveilling foreign targets, intercepted communications with some Trump associates. Stunningly, Nunes didn’t tell the other members of his committee about it, but instead rushed to inform the person who is himself, indirectly at least, the target of his committee’s investigation.

With eyebrows suspiciously furrowed, Tucker Carlson sat down tonight with NYU Professor of Russian Studies and contributor to The Nation, Stephen Cohen, to discuss the 35 page #FakeNews dossier which has gripped the nation with nightmares of golden showers and other perverted conduct which was to be used by Russia to keep Trump on a leash.

The left leaning Cohen, who holds a Ph.D. in government and Russian studies from Columbia, taught at Princeton for 30 years before moving to NYU. He has spent a lifetime deeply immersed in US-Russian relations, having been both a long standing friend of Mikhail Gorbachev and an advisor to President George H.W. Bush. His wife is also the editor of uber liberal "The Nation," so it's safe to assume he's not shilling for Trump - and Tucker was right to go in with eyebrows guarded against such a heavyweight.

Cohen, who has been quite vocal against the Russophobic witch hunt gripping the nation, believes that this falsified 35 page report is part of an "endgame" to mortally wound Trump before he even sets foot in the White House, by grasping at straws to paint him as a puppet of the Kremlin. The purpose of these overt attempts to cripple Trump, which have relied on ham-handed intelligence reports that, according to Cohen "even the New York Times referred to as lacking any evidence whatsoever," is to stop any kind of détente or cooperation with Russia.

NO SHIT! Obama's 'Catch And Release' Amnesty Policy Allowed Rape Suspects Into the US

RELATED: >>>/realnews/1015

Yet another example that the globalists HATE America and intend to subjugate us!

An alleged rapist was delivered from Central America to a school hallway in Maryland by former President Barack Obama’s policy of treating economic migrants as if they were victims of crime, said an expert on illegal immigration.

“The only reason the older youth, Sanchez Milian, was in the country at all was because of the Obama administration’s catch and release policies that allowed him to be resettled in Maryland (with the support of taxpayers), with few questions asked,” the Center for Immigration Studies’ Director of Policy Jessica Vaughan told Breitbart News.

“Few groups of illegal immigrants have left such a violent mark in our community as these so-called unaccompanied minors—they are almost like modern day Marielitos (the Cuban inmates released by Fidel Castro decades ago),” she said. “Dozens have been arrested for violent crimes in Maryland, New York, Massachusetts, Virginia and Texas.”

Police arrested two illegal alien suspects, 18-year-old Henry E. Sanchez Milian and 17-year-old Jose Montano, on Thursday after staff at Rockville High School in Maryland reported a sex attack on a 14-year-old freshman who had just escaped her alleged assailants. Sanchez Milian is a citizen of Guatemala.

Border patrol agents encountered him in Texas in August as he crossed from Mexico into the U.S., according to WTOP.com.

Obama regime policy required he be issued a notice to appear before an immigration judge for a hearing, and in the meantime, Sanchez Milian was free to roam around as he pleased. Despite his age, he was permitted to enroll in a public high school as a freshman.

According to a detective’s interview with the victim that same day, Sanchez Milian and Montano allegedly raped her orally, vaginally, and anally while bending her across a toilet in a boy’s bathroom stall, sometimes simultaneously. The victim repeatedly cried out in pain and begged them to stop throughout the savage attack. A forensic specialist found blood and bodily fluids in the boy’s bathroom after the victim reported the alleged rape.

Family honors grandma's memory by displaying all of her quilts at her funeral

http://www.sg-times.com/family-honors-grandmas-memory-by-displaying-all-of-her-quilts-at-her-funeral/

Margaret Hubl passed away last July in Nebraska at the age of 89, reported Today, but it’s safe to say her legacy will continue to live on.

You see, Hubl was a quilter. While some people make quilts as an afternoon pastime, she made them to communicate her love for her family.

This was very clear at her funeral, when her children and grandchildren decided to drape all of the quilts that she had made over the backs of the pews.

“Never did I imagine how many there were,” Hubl’s granddaughter, Christina Tollman, told TODAY. “We covered almost every single pew in that church. I never knew how many she actually made.”

And while the quilts are special, the meaning behind them really takes the cake.

Hubl spent her life caring for her family. She had three children of her own, and then took in her sister-in-law’s twins after a tragic accident. Hubl and her husband, Henry, raised all five children in a small three-bedroom home on their farm.

Hubl initially started sewing in order to make clothes for her children, but as they grew up and had kids of their own, she had to make those kids something as well.

That’s where the quilts come in. She started making them for each grandchild as they graduated from high school.

CIA NightSkies: ALT SHIFT KILL

RELATED: >>>/realnews/2003

The Wikileaks disclosure of CIA espionage software is supposed to be about Big Brother. They are defensive in nature designed to monitor and tap into our computers and communications. However, these programs have more than just a passive surveillance function. They also can kill.

Quietly embedded in the latest Wikileaks disclosure of CIA exploits is a cute little program called NightSkies. NightSkies is one in a series of Apple malware programs under a project called Triton. These programs are designed to monitor and "beacon" back information stolen from infected Apple computers. NightSkies has one nice little feature in its arsenal of functions… it can also execute any other program downloaded secretly from a remote CIA "Listening Post".

https://wikileaks.org/vault7/darkmatter/document/DarkSeaSkies_1_0_URD/page-5/#pagination

At first, this feature seems logical and more or less harmless. It is not. It is this feature that murder by software is enabled.

If the infected computer is used in an industrial, internet of things, military or medical application it can be turned into an assassination machine. While Apple computers are not often used in the military, industrial or Internet of Things fields, they are frequently found inside hospitals and they communicate with other critical systems as well - all of which can be the difference between life and death for a patient.

Clearly, the NightSkies design is not the only such program in the CIA arsenal. Similar features will be found embedded within other CIA exploit programs designed for the other major operating systems such as Android, Windows and Linux.

For example, a computer monitoring the condition of a patient can be told to ignore signs of a heart attack and not alert the staff. Other medical computers control more than just monitoring a patient, for example computers often control blood filtering for kidney dialysis. In fact the medical industry is filled with computers that perform a wide variety of life critical functions, diagnosis of brain tissues, X-ray controls, chemotherapy control, and delivery of intravenous medicines.

It is this remote code execution feature and payload delivery of the CIA NightSkies design that is of greatest concern. It could range from a subtle change in the dosage of medicine that becomes lethal, deliver a series of lethal X-Ray or radiation therapy treatments, or perform miss-diagnosis of a condition so that medical staff delivers lethal treatment. The computers involved could show the operators that they are performing flawlessly while at the same time dosing a patient with a massive amount of radiation.

NightSkies design also combines itself with embedded clock timers, to install itself and execute at a specific data/time and then de-install and delete itself at another pre-designated time. Thus, making it possible for the program to execute its prime function, kill and then delete itself, leaving no evidence behind. In addition, the NightSkies design exploits are built to be ignored and accepted by Anti-Virus programs; therefore they are almost invisible to current defenses. Finally, the NightSkies design programs communicate with their host Listening Post (LP) using encrypted communications so when they do "beacon" the data transmission is undecipherable. All these features combine to make NightSkies designs the perfect assassination tool.

The myriad of devices that we rely on for critical life functions that use any of the major operating systems are vulnerable to this kind of attack. These operating systems function aboard airliners, automobiles, in water plants, sewage facilities, oil pipelines, traffic control, police, fire, and rescue and are even present inside the controls for nuclear weapon systems. For example, the British force of nuclear tipped Trident submarines run a variant of Windows XP.

It is now clear exactly how dangerous the CIA exploits are. They are not simple defensive surveillance tools if they can download other programs unseen and then execute them. They become offensive weapons designed to kill.

Despite Rumors After Ryan's RINOcare Failure, Obamacare Will Be Repealed After It Collapses

OBAMACARE MANDATE/FINE REPEALED BY EXECUTIVE ORDER: >>>/goodnews/143

OBAMACARE COLLAPSE UPDATES: >>>/realnews/588

Vice President Pence on Saturday reaffirmed the Trump administration's commitment to repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act, saying President Trump "won't rest" until the law is dismantled.

Addressing a pro-Trump rally in West Virginia, Pence told supporters that the president "won't rest until we repeal and replace ObamaCare," according to pool reports.

The comment came a day after the American Health Care Act, the GOP healthcare reform bill, was pulled from consideration in the House due to dwindling support among Republicans.

The move was a blow to years of rhetoric from Republicans who campaigned on a pledge to repeal and replace former President Barack Obama's signature healthcare law and it handed Trump the first legislative defeat of his presidency.

After the measure was killed, Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said that ObamaCare would remain in place for the "foreseeable future," effectively shutting down current healthcare reform efforts.

The president said he would wait for ObamaCare to collapse before negotiating a new proposal with the help of Democrats.

Trump Endorses Jeanine Pirro's Call For Paul Ryan To Step Down

All going as planned…

Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro, whose show President Trump urged his followers on Twitter to watch earlier in the day, opened her program at 9pm on Saturday by calling for Speaker Paul Ryan's resignation.

"Ryan needs to step down as Speaker of the House. The reason, he failed to deliver the votes on his healthcare bill, the one trumpeted to repeal and replace ObamaCare, the one that he had 7 years to work on; the one he hid under lock and key in the basement of Congress; the one that had to be pulled to prevent the embarrassment of not having enough votes to pass." Pirro said in her opening statement.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cChG52Zpedc

"Speaker Ryan, you come in with all your swagger and experience and sell them a bill of goods which ends up a complete and total failure and you allow our president, in his first 100 days, to come out of the box like that, based on what?" Pirro said.

What made Pirro's fiery comments about Ryan especially notable is that they came hours after Trump tweeted to encourage his followers to watch "Justice with Judge Jeanine."

>Watch @JudgeJeanine on @FoxNews tonight at 9:00 P.M.

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 25, 2017

While Trump has urged people to watch TV shows in the past, typically it was when the president himself was appearing on them. However in a twist, Pirro suggested that she had not coordinated her statement with Trump in advance.

"I have not spoken with the president about any of this," Pirro said of her call for Ryan to step down on her show, where president's counter-terrorism adviser Sebastian Gorka also appeared on Saturday evening.

On Friday Trump told Ryan to pull the Republican healthcare bill, upon learning there were not enough votes in support among House Republicans. The move marked Trump's first legislative defeat as president and followed seven years of rhetoric from Republicans who campaigned on a pledge to repeal and replace former President Barack Obama's signature healthcare law.

Congress Urge Immediate Investigation Into Epidemic Of Missing DC Kids

Days after Trey Gowdy put the Washington D.C. elite pedophile ring on notice, members of Congress have called upon the FBI and Department of Justice to investigate the epidemic of missing young people in the nation’s capital – as a matter of urgency.

Washington D.C. police have also suggested the elite pedophile ring has been in operation in the nation’s capital “for a long time.” Speaking to a community group, a police chief said “The disturbing fact is we do have that many kids that go missing in our city and it’s been that way for a long time.”

D.C. police have urged young people to “stay home” in order to avoid becoming the latest victims of the elite pedophile sex trafficking epidemic that is plaguing the nation’s capital.

The extraordinary advice from D.C. police comes days after the first Democrat elected official pleaded guilty to raping a child, and adds weight to President Trump’s claim that the nation’s capital is suffering from an unprecedented sex trafficking plague.

Missing children have become a hot topic in Washington D.C. this year after a huge spike in the number of teens and children going missing coincided with claims that an elite pedophile ring is operating in the city.

The number of missing children in and around Washington D.C. is so high it is simply unfathomable.

Members of Congress have finally begun to act, spurred by the anger of their constituents and work by the alternative media in highlighting the problem. “Ten children of color went missing in our nation’s capital in a period of two weeks and at first garnered very little media attention. That’s deeply disturbing,” reads a letter signed this week by Congressional Black Caucus chairman Cedric Richmond and Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton. It calls upon the Justice Department and FBI to investigate and “return these children to their parents as soon as possible.”

At a meeting at a neighborhood school on Wednesday, the co-founder of the Black and Missing Foundation suggested the human trafficking ring that President Trump has vowed to destroy could be preying on low income teens and runaways.

Most Antivirus Tools Vulnerable To CIA Attacks, And You Cannot Not Trust Them

RELATED: >>>/hsgts/63

LEARN ABOUT OPSEC: >>>/opsec/4

Last week’s CIA leaks from WikiLeaks revealed that most antivirus programs may have been bypassed at one point or another by the CIA. We’ve asked the antivirus companies about their opinions on the leaks and what they intend to do next.

According to WikiLeaks’ leaked documents, most popular antivirus tools have been bypassed and exploited by the CIA. This fact alone isn’t as surprising as one may initially think, because it’s actually quite common for sophisticated attackers to be able to bypass most popular antivirus programs. That’s how they deliver their malware in the first place.

The real problem may come from the fact that antivirus programs in general aren’t as secure as you might expect them to be. Also, because of their deep hooks into the operating system or browsers, they can sometimes make users even more vulnerable to attacks (at least of the more sophisticated type).

Although 21 antivirus and security solutions vendors were included in a WikiLeaks document describing bypasses against them, WikiLeaks left information about the attacks on only three antivirus vendors: F-Secure, Avira, and AVG (recently purchased by Avast, another antivirus vendor). The organization said it didn’t want to expose information that might endanger actual CIA operations, which may be why the information on most of the others was redacted.

F-Secure

The CIA had the following comment on F-Secure’s antivirus software, implying that F-Secure isn’t all that secure, and that it can be bypassed easily:

"In OSB's experience, F-Secure has generally been a lower tier product that causes us minimal difficulty. The only annoyance we have observed is that F-Secure has an apparent entropy-based heuristic that flags Trojaned applications or other binaries containing encrypted/compressed payloads. Two defeats are known to exist: On involves using RAR file string tables in the resource section, the other involves cloning a RAR file manifest file – the manifest technique also works against Avira's entropy-based heuristics."

"The leaks detail a large amount evasions for basically all the end-point security products.

I think it's a fair game. CIA has targets they are trying to get to, and some of those are protected by products like these. CIA wouldn't be doing their job if they wouldn't be developing techniques like these.

We don't consider this to be a vulnerability as such, as they are not crashing us or exploiting us. Anti-virus products are never perfect; some attacks will always succeed. A superpower intelligence agency with massive budgets can definitely do that.

I much prefer them doing it like this, instead of trying to twist our arm to let them through."

Avira

The CIA doesn’t seem to have a great opinion about Avira either, calling it "easy to evade":

"Avira has historically been a popular product among CT targets, but is typically easy to evade. Similar to F-Secure, Avira has an apparent entropy-based heuristic that flags binaries containing encrypted/compressed payloads, but there are two known defeats."

Avira released a statement to Tom’s Hardware in which it said that the issue was minor and was fixed a few hours after WikiLeaks released the CIA “Vault 7” documents.

AVG (Avast)

In the leaked document, the CIA seemed to say that AVG does catch the agency’s payload, but only well after its execution–and of course by then, it’s too late. That means the CIA could have chained together multiple exploits to disable the antivirus software before it could react.

"AVG catches a payload dropped to disk and launched via link file well after execution (process hollowing)."

AVG denied their anti-virus is vulnerable at all. FISHY!

Comodo

Comodo said that version 10 of the Comodo firewall was released earlier this year, and it shouldn’t be vulnerable to such attacks anymore. That will remain to be seen.

CIA Leaks Are A Wake-up Call for Consumers

RELATED: >>>/yugioh/330

LEARN ABOUT OPSEC: >>>/opsec/4

As the full extent of the latest revelations by WikiLeaks sinks in, it once again reinforces a new normal for our world. Several lessons are in order from the cache of highly sensitive secret documents about the CIA’s technical capabilities that have been leaked.

First, the stark reality that no digital device, conversation or memory today is safe from the prying eyes of a spying agency or intruding hackers. The vulnerability of internet-connected devices is in sharp contrast to the rapid advances made in digital technology around the world and the real-time distribution of information that keeps us engrossed throughout the clock. While any one acting within legal boundaries need not worry about potential snooping by a government agency, it does raise disturbing questions about the privacy of information and personal activities for the average consumer. Similarly, for governments, getting unbridled access to someone’s electronic devices could be justified as vital if the circumstances demand it — whether to prevent a possible terror attack or to carry out a drone strike. But what would be worrying is the abuse of such technology and vast mines of data, whether by rogue elements or governments — which is why public safeguards are necessary to prevent any misuse of such unchecked oversight.

Second, simply changing passwords on digital devices might not be adequate as technology gets more sophisticated. Whether it’s a smart refrigerator, programmed lights, a talking TV or the innocuous baby monitor, every minute of our daily existence leaves digital footprints — and it’s all too easy to find them for those who seek. An added concern is the growing apathy and fatigue towards such shocking revelations, since most people have come to accept such intrusion as the inevitable by-product of a digital era. At a political level, the revelations will continue to damage intelligence communities around the world, while highlighting their overarching reach. For businesses, the cost of disruption due to a data breach or hacking are already enormous — and will only continue to climb. For both individuals and conglomerates, the latest leaks should therefore be a time for introspection of our digital priorities and building robust tools to prevent such security risks.

While Google & Facebook Censor The News, They Happily Profit From Terror and Violence

With each passing day, the insidious evil of Google and Facebook becomes increasingly apparent to all aware individuals. The latest disgusting examples show how Google earns sick profits off content that teaches Jihadi terrorists how to commit mass murder using vehicles as weapons. Similarly, Facebook now gives “thumbs up” approval to posts that call for people to “kill white women” while simultaneously banning accounts that post Bible passages.

How sick and evil have these tech giants really become? By some accounts, they now pose an imminent threat to not just the sanity — but even the safety — of citizens everywhere.

Google makes money off “Jihadi terror manuals”

Via the UK Daily Mail: https://archive.is/hA3yY

In the hours after the London attack, the Daily Mail found vile Islamic State terror manuals online through simple searches on Google and Twitter. One included a section on using vehicles as weapons.

The vile manuals were online despite widespread warnings that UK jihadists use them for training.

Fanatics are urged to deploy large vehicles as ‘tools of war’ before going on a stabbing rampage – the template for Wednesday’s atrocity in Westminster.

It told jihadists in the West to learn from Palestinian terrorists who ‘have resorted to using cars as tools of war, also knives as weapons which are easily available from DIY stores’. The manual was published a year ago, before the vehicle attacks in Nice, Berlin and London, which have killed 102 people and injured more than 500. Another Islamic State publication was available through Google and Twitter with detailed instructions on how to cause mayhem.

In other words, anyone looking to learn how to commit murder and terrorism can go straight to Google to find out how it’s done. And during all searches, Google is making money off the search history data collection of the user as well as any possible ads that might appear, served up by Google Adwords.

Facebook gives thumbs up to “white women should be hunted and killed”

At the same time Google is profiting off Jjihadi terrorism manuals that promote the mass slaughter of innocents, Facebook is giving a “thumbs up” rating to a post that urges the mass killing of white women.

As reported by InfoWars: https://archive.is/Qdkq0

The way in which Facebook polices content on its network is under scrutiny again after it was revealed that a post in which a user called for white women to be “hunted and killed” was deemed to not be a violation of community standards.

“White women should be hunted and killed then we won’t get white babies who think the(y) own the world,” the user posted.

Trump and Republicans To Focus On Tax Reform, While Allowing Obamacare To Collapse In Due Time

Now that the effort to overhaul the nation's health care system has collapsed (for now), the Trump administration is turning its attention to tax reform.

Trump's comments came after Republicans were forced to cancel a House vote on their bill to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act because they could not get the support needed for passage. The Obamacare replacement bill was not much different from Obamacare, so no worries about it failing for most conservatives.

After Republicans pulled Ryancare, Trump told reporters at the White House, "I would say that we will probably start going very, very strongly for the big tax cuts and tax reform. That will be next."

While the GOP decision to pull the health care proposal could be an ominous sign for tax cuts and the rest of Trump's legislative agenda, Trump was more optimistic, saying, "now we're going to go for tax reform, which I've always liked."

Earlier in the day, Mnuchin, the president's chief economic spokesman, suggested that tax reform might be easier to sell in Congress.

He said the goal was still to win congressional approval of the tax measure by August. But if the timeline is delayed, he said he expected the proposal to pass by the fall.

At the White House, press secretary Sean Spicer acknowledged the August deadline is an "ambitious one" for such a comprehensive and complicated project, but he said it's a goal the administration "is going to try to stick to."

"Tax reform is something the president is very committed to," Spicer told reporters. Mnuchin had lunch at the White House Friday with Trump and House Speaker Paul Ryan.

Mnuchin did not commit specifically on the goal but said, "The president's objective is a middle income tax cut. … Our primary focus in a tax cut for the middle income (earners) and not the top."

He predicted Trump's plan would achieve economic growth of 3 percent to 3.5 percent, up significantly.

IT Begins! Driverless Vehicles Crashing And Risking Lives!

A self-driving car operated by Uber Technologies Inc. was involved in a crash in Tempe, Arizona, the latest setback for a company reeling from multiple crises.

In a photo posted on Twitter, one of Uber’s Volvo self-driving SUVs is pictured on its side next to another car with dents and smashed windows. An Uber spokeswoman confirmed the incident, and the veracity of the photo, in an email to Bloomberg News.

The spokeswoman refused to confirm if there were any injuries, or whether the car was carrying passengers. Uber’s self-driving cars began picking up customers in Arizona last month.

Uber, and Chief Executive Officer Travis Kalanick, are under scrutiny because of a series of other scandals.

Uber’s self-driving car program has also been mired in controversy. Waymo, Alphabet Inc.’s autonomous driving business, sued an Uber unit called Otto earlier this year for allegedly stealing designs for an important component of driverless cars known as lidar.

The photo, showing the Uber SUV on its side, suggests a relatively high-impact crash. That would be a contrast to the incidents involving self-driving cars tested by Waymo.

A driverless car was involved in a traffic accident on a California city street in 2016: http://archive.is/Sck9m

The incident was partially caused by a subtle software update, implemented a few weeks prior in all of Google’s autonomous cars, that enabled them to “hug the rightmost side of the lane,” a common social norm that allows other drivers to pass on the left. According to the accident report, the Google autonomous vehicle was shifting within its lane to bypass an obstacle in its path when it made contact with a bus approaching from behind. The car was traveling slower than two miles per hour at the time of impact — the bus, about 15 mph.

Luciferian Takeover! New Blasphemous Movie Depicts God As a Woman, The Church Has Been Infiltrated

It is time to Wake The Church, as it has been infiltrated by new age doctrines and Luciferian philosophies! Luciferian, occultic, new age teachings within the movie The Shack are attempting to alter Scripture and sway believers.

Purportedly, over one thousand ‘faith leaders’ are in support of the blasphemous film, which is based on the book by the same name and claims that God is only about love not justice, holiness or wrath.

The following comes from Heather Clark a leading author at the Christian News Network who has done an excellent job in exposing this film.

The resource site for “The Shack” provides both written and recorded endorsements from many well-known entities, including leaders and representatives of The Salvation Army, Young Life, Family Christian Stores, The Christian Post, K-LOVE, CBN and TBN, to celebrities such as Michael W. Smith, Joel Houston of Hillsong United, Gospel artist Tasha Cobbs and Chip and Joanna Gaines of HGTV’s “Fixer Upper” show.

Numerous pastors and church leaders have lent their endorsement as well, including Kent Munsey of Hillsong Chicago, Samuel Rodriguez of New Season Church in Sacramento, California and leader of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, Kenneth Ulmer of Faithful Central Bible Church in Los Angeles, and Steve Munsey of Family Christian Center in Munster, Indiana.

“I would encourage all pastors to make sure that their congregation is able to see this movie,” said Charles Blake, the current presiding bishop of the Church of God in Christ (COGIC).

“Honestly, I was apprehensive about seeing it because I loved the book so much. What a wonderful surprise to have my expectations and hope exceeded. I love the message, the very believable message, that God is always with us doing more than we could ask or imagine,” stated Terry Meeuwsen, co-host of Pat Robertson’s “700 Club.”

“It’s not afraid to go into the real issues of life, which is pain, which is dealing with hurt and forgiveness, and what love is,” also remarked Houston of Hillsong, whose music is featured in the film. “And I think those are the things that actually connect with all humanity.”

The Luciferian Takeover

The assault on Christianity is further expanded upon in this film and is exceedingly evident given the plot; the question is, where in the world does this ideology originate from?

There are several key points throughout the book such as God doesn’t punish us for our un-repented sins, and there is no hell, the Holy Spirit is called by the Hindu name Sarayu; which can help us pinpoint the origin of this blasphemous ideology. But again where does this ideology originate from?

Subtly but evidently in the background of the day to day life, a movement has grown exponentially, and this movement seeks to overthrow Christianity. The philosophy and doctrine within this movie aligns itself directly with the ideology of Helena Blavatsky, who happens to be one of the founders of the New Age Movement and was an avid believer in the doctrines of Lucifer.

The following is a quote from Blavatsky;

>If we do not admit of any punishment outside of this earth, it is because the only state the Spiritual Self knows of, hereafter, is that of unalloyed bliss. …crimes and sins committed on a plane of objectivity and in a world of matter, cannot receive punishment in a world of pure subjectivity. We believe in no hell or paradise as localities; in no objective hell-fires and worms that never die, nor in any Jerusalem with streets paved with sapphires and diamonds. What we believe in is a post-mortem state or mental condition, such as we are in during a vivid dream. We believe in an immutable law of absolute Love, Justice, and Mercy.

So why in the world is a supposedly Christian movie supporting Luciferian Occultist ideology? Because the occultists, spiritualists, and Hindu’s are attempting a full-blown subversion of the Church. So many Christians are fascinated with the New Age’s definition of Love, that in their eyes they misinterpret scripture.

FASCIST COMMUNISM! Conservative Journalist Convicted for Self Defense Against BLM Thugs

It's not only the Russians and Chinese that suppress free speech and the right to self defense!

THE SUBVERSIVE OBAMANATION HAS TAKEN OVER THE COURT SYSTEM!

A conservative video journalist and blogger, who drew his legal handgun to scare off a rampaging crowd during a recent protest in Portland, has been convicted of felony charges.

A recent court decision involving a political activist’s attendance at a Black Lives Matter (BLM) protest last summer demonstrates just how tyrannical America has become in an era of political correctness, hostility toward the Second Amendment, and a glorification of minorities and leftist activists.

In Portland, Ore., Michael Strickland, a 37-yearold conservative blogger, journalist, and activist who maintains the popular YouTube channel “LaughingAtLiberals,” was recently found guilty of 21 felony and misdemeanor charges stemming from his presence at a BLM protest in early July of last year.

Strickland, known for his coverage of radical leftist events, was filming a BLM protest in downtown Portland on the evening of July 7 when he was confronted by a large group of hostile BLM protesters, some of whom were masked, armed with flag poles, and making threats against Strickland while advancing toward the citizen-journalist.

It must be noted that radical leftist protesters, often masked, violently assaulted their political opponents—and even innocent bystanders—repeatedly throughout the 2016 election season, causing personal injury and private property damage on numerous occasions. Additionally, BLM protests often devolve into riots, where violence, looting, and destruction take place on a massive scale.

Fearing for his safety and being completely outnumbered, Strickland briefly drew his Glock semiautomatic handgun to ward off the hostile crowd that was hounding him. Amateur video footage of the protest and confrontation shows Strickland retreating while being pursued by a group of BLM protesters before eventually brandishing his firearm, for which he had a legal concealed carry permit, only to quickly reholster his weapon after the situation was de-escalated and the crowd backed off.

“What happened was there were about 10 or 12 people that surrounded me,” Strickland explained at the time. “They started pushing and shoving me. They were using their flag staffs as weapons. I’m backing up, they kept coming toward me. . . . That’s why I drew. . . . I was outnumbered, they were pushing and shoving me. . . . I feared for my life, because I was outnumbered, and they had weapons.”

Shortly after the confrontation, a SWAT team arrived and Strickland was apprehended and taken into custody, charged with menacing and disorderly conduct.

At Strickland’s recent trial, Judge Thomas Ryan found the conservative activist guilty of 10 counts of unlawful use of a weapon, 10 counts of menacing, and one count of second-degree disorderly conduct for brandishing his legally concealed firearm at protesters that fateful evening.

While Strickland argued he was acting in self-defense, prosecutors contended he did not have a legitimate fear of being in imminent danger or of being physically hurt.

Strickland is scheduled to be sentenced in May.

The reaction to Strickland’s conviction from Second Amendment and free speech activists has been justifiable outrage.

“Given all the violence that we’ve seen at Black Lives Matter and other leftist demonstrations, Strickland clearly had cause to fear for his life,” Chris Cantwell, a leading libertarian and gun rights activist, writer, and host of “The Radical Agenda,” a popular podcast, recently explained to AFP in an email exchange.

Assraped by Digital Sales, GameStop Now Looking to Close up to 150 Stores Soon

During its earnings report for the final fiscal quarter of 2016, retail chain GameStop announced declining sales in games and hardware, and that it could potentially close at least 150 of its 7,500 stores, according to The Wall Street Journal.

The company noted that that its total global sales declined 13.6 percent during the 2016 holiday season, because of “weak sales of certain AAA titles and aggressive console promotions by other retailers”. The chain announced that it “anticipates that it will close between two percent to three percent of its global store footprint” in 2017.

GameStop CEO Paul Raines pointed to digital sales as a reason for why video game and console sales have begun to slow for the company. New hardware sales fell 29.1 percent, while software sales fell by 19.3 percent. Despite those losses, Raines noted that “new hardware innovation in the video game category looks promising,” with consoles such as the Nintendo Switch selling out quickly. Nintendo plans to double their production this year due to high demand.

Despite the those losses, there were some bright points, and GameStop appears to be pivoting to adjust. The company saw its sales rise by 27.8 percent when it came to collectibles, particularly with Pokémon-related toys and apparel. According to Raines, GameStop’s “non-gaming businesses drove gross margin expansion and significantly contributed to our profits,” a trend that he anticipated would continue in the coming year. To that end, GameStop will be opening “approximately 35 new Collectibles stores globally, and approximately 65 new Technology Brand stores.”

Ivanka’s Secret Service Detail Is Infuriating Ritzy DC Neighborhood

Residents of Washington, D.C.’s ritzy Kalorama neighborhood are in an uproar over Ivanka Trump’s Secret Service detail taking up too many parking spots on the block.

Ivanka Trump, daughter of President Donald Trump, recently moved into the Kalorama neighborhood with her husband, Jared Kushner, and their three young children, but the warm welcome they initially received is quickly wearing thin because of all the Secret Service SUVs, The Washington Post reports.

Two “No Parking” signs were installed in front of the Trump-Kushner house. The real explosion, however, happened Monday after city workers put up two more “No Parking” signs right beside the residence of the (((Friedmans))), who live next door.

For lawyer Rhonda Friedman, this apparently was the last straw.

“I started screaming,” Friedman told The Washington Post.

Holy Shit! Did Trump Just Outcuck One Of The Biggest Of Cucks?

RELATED: >>527706

Republican officials in Congress and the White House are now openly discussing finding a GOP replacement to Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) as Speaker of the House, after Ryan failed to pass the American Health Care Act out of the House and misled the public and President Donald Trump when he promised repeatedly the bill would pass.

Ryan was caught on an audio file from October—obtained by Breitbart News and published a couple weeks ago—saying he is “not going to defend Donald Trump—not now, not in the future.” While the audio file does not make the comments clear, Ryan’s staff later claimed that it was specifically about the Access Hollywood tape scandal from the election. The audio tape of Ryan, recorded from a House GOP members’ conference call, does not make that context clear.

Many allies of the president and several White House officials over the weeks since have confirmed to Breitbart News that the president is concerned that Ryan may not have his—or his agenda’s—best interests at heart. Ryan’s failure to deliver the votes on healthcare cement Trump’s skepticism of Ryan, they say.

“This is another example of the staff not serving the president well and the weakness of the Paul Ryan speakership,” a source close to President Trump told Breitbart News. “This calls into question once again the speaker’s commitment to supporting Donald Trump and his agenda.”

“Speaker Ryan proved today that he does not have the best interests of the President at heart,” said another source close to the president. “He sold out the president and showed his word can be taken with a grain of salt. There is only one course of action that should be taken to move past this catastrophe and that is the swift removal of Paul Ryan from the speakership.”

White House sources tell Breitbart News that the president is very frustrated with Ryan and feels that he has saved him multiple times already. After the election in November, it was widely reported that there were enough Republican votes to remove Ryan as Speaker—and the only reason conservatives kept him is that Trump won the election and embraced Ryan. But now Trump may perceive Ryan as a burden rather than someone who can help enact his agenda.

A senior Senate GOP aide questioned whether Ryan has the chops to continue in the position.

“A tale as old as time, our establishment leadership continue advocating for moderate pieces of legislation after ignoring conservative input,” the Senate aide said. “How can President Donald Trump trust Speaker Paul Ryan in the future after this failure? If he couldn’t deliver on something so simple as repealing Obamacare, will he be able to deliver on complex pieces of legislation?”

House Republicans are also questioning whether Ryan can remain as Speaker after this abysmal failure.

BUSTED! 12 Pieces Of Evidence Prove The Lying MSM Knew Obama Spied On Trump

http://archive.is/KatdS

http://yournewswire.com/evidence-msm-obama-spied-trump/

The mainstream media knew Obama spied on Trump and reported on it for months. Then when President Trump called Obama and the media on it in a series on tweets, pointing out the fact it was illegal, the mainstream media quickly changed their tune and began the big cover up.

The proof is in black and white. Mainstream media have damned themselves with their own newsprint. In fact, as you’ll see below, for two reasons, the media was overjoyed that this spying had occurred: (1) they got scoops damaging to Trump, and (2) in their partisan and cultish minds, the very fact that the oh-so pure Obama administration felt the need to spy, could only mean Trump was in bed with Putin.

In fact, the media was actually having a big public party using Obama’s spying. Hoo-hah here’s a scoop! Whee-hee Flynn said this! Woo-woo palace intrigue! Ha-haaah here’s what so-and-so said! Tra-la-la here’s what so-and-so did!

As Daily Wire reports: http://archive.is/BxOvz

http://www.dailywire.com/news/14756/12-pieces-proof-msm-knew-obama-spied-trump-and-john-nolte

On March 4, in a series of tweets that had the exact same effect as political nukes, Trump himself confirmed what the media had already told us – that the Obama administration had spied on him and his team.

Trump’s brilliance was focusing on the sleazy and illegal act of the actual spying. And this is when the media realized that all their ha-has and tra-la-las were about to backfire. Their Precious Barry was now at risk, and so the shameless cover up and lying began …

Suddenly, right around 8 a.m. on Saturday, March 4, the conventional wisdom and public knowledge that the Obama administration had spied on Trump, was surrounded by the media’s semantic wagons which were manned by lying journalists armed with hair-splitting. I don’t want to go through all that again, so you can read why Trump told the 100% truth in the first section of this piece. The bottom line, though, is this …

Trump accused Obama of spying on him.

Obama did spy on Trump.

The media knew Obama spied on Trump.

The media lied and covered up the fact that Obama spied on Trump.

We know this with absolute certainty because the media itself spent months telling us so. And here is all the proof you will ever need to make that case … [emphasis mine throughout]

Republicans Admit Defeat On Health Care Bill: 'Obamacare Is The Law Of The Land'

"Obamacare is the law of the land. It is going to remain the law of the land," House Speaker Paul Ryan admitted shortly after he pulled the bill. "We're going to be living with Obamacare for the foreseeable future. I don't know how long it's going to take us to replace this law."

Trump and Ryan both said health care is being put on the shelf for the time being. They're moving on to tax reform.

The failure of the health care bill is a major setback for Trump's leadership and Ryan's ability to control his conference.

Trump — who is the first president to enter office without any political or legislative experience — seemed to admit there was a bit of a learning curve.

"It's pretty exciting for us," the California Democrat said, beaming. "Yesterday the anniversary. Today is a victory for us."

College ‘Diversity Council’ Admits to Posting Fake Racist Flyers On Campus

Diversity Leadership Council at Gustavus Adolphus College admits that it — with the help of other social-justice groups — planted fake racist flyers on campus “to educate” people about racism.

The flyers, according to a photo obtained by Campus Reform, stated:

A NOTICE TO ALL WHITE AMERICANS IT IS YOUR CIVIC DUTY TO REPORT ANY AND ALL ILLEGAL ALIENS TO U.S. IMMIGRATION AND CUSTOMS ENFORCEMENT THEY ARE CRIMINALS AMERICA IS A WHITE NATION

Obviously, these flyers caused a huge uproar among the school’s students and alumni — only for Dean of Students Jones VanHecke to later announce that they were “part of a series of educational ‘invisible theater’ events taking place this week that have been planned by I Am We Are theater troupe, the Diversity Leadership Team, and the Bystander Intervention Committee.”

On Monday, the Diversity Leadership Council published a Facebook post explaining that it had posted the fake flyers to “promote, preserve, and protect on-campus diversity” and “to help educate our peers and campus community about issues of bias, and the importance of being an active bystander.” “We want to help put an end to bias-related incidents that happen on our campus, social media, and in our communities by forcing individuals to have dialogues about forms of hate and bias,” the post stated.

Hey, kids? If you want to “help put an end to bias-related incidents that happen on our campus,” how about you address those incidents instead of distracting from them by making up a fake one? Seriously — just what is bringing awareness to a fake issue going to solve? It’s not going to help solve that issue, because — and sorry if I’m blowing your mind here — a problem has to actually exist in order for you to be able to solve it.

SUPER DUPER CRAZY! Hillary Clinton May Run Again In 2020

Sponsored by >>>/crazynews/

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton could be running for president again in 2020.

Clinton’s former campaign manager Robby Mook appeared on MSNBC’s “For The Record With Greta” Monday night to discuss the possibility of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

Clinton was spotted in Pennsylvania over St. Patrick’s Day weekend, according to host Greta Van Sustern, who suggested that the visit could be related to a 2020 presidential bid.

Mook would not rule out if Clinton was planning to run against President Donald Trump in 2020, but he did say the Clinton camp’s focus is on figuring out the degree to which Russia was involved in the last election cycle.

“I’m going to let her answer for that,” Mook said. “I think what happens right now, we’ve got to get to the bottom of what happened in 2016 then we can start worrying about the next cycle. But we’ve got to make sure that this cannot happen again in two years or four years to anybody else.”

Trump made it known Saturday on Fox News that he would relish the opportunity to run against Sen. Elizabeth Warren in 2020. “That would be a dream come true,” the president said. “I think she would lose so badly.”

Rand Paul, Along With A Lot Of Other Conservatives, Celebrate Demise of Ryan's "Obamacare Lite"

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) quickly declared victory on Friday, praising conservatives for "standing up against ObamaCare Lite."

“I applaud House conservatives for keeping their word to the American people,” Paul said in a statement.

Republican leaders pulled their bill to repeal and replace ObamaCare on Friday afternoon, acknowledging that it was headed toward defeat.

Paul — who has been a top antagonist of the House bill — added that "I look forward to passing full repeal of ObamaCare in the very near future.”

Paul and other House conservatives have offered an alternative repeal bill that mirrors 2015 legislation cleared by Congress but vetoed by then-President Barack Obama.

NWO Shaken After Putin Meets Le Pen at Kremlin (Get Ready For Mass Hissy Fits by MSM)

With just one month to go until the French presidential election, President Vladimir Putin met the leader of the National Front, Marine Le Pen, in the Kremlin on Friday, and as Reuters summarized, “handed her a potential boost to her campaign to win next month’s presidential election in France.”

Putin told Le Pen Moscow reserved the right to meet any French politician it wanted and that she represented “quite a fast-growing element of European political forces.”

“Of course I know that the election campaign in France is actively developing,” said Putin who sarcastically commented on ongoing allegations that Russia is behind the final outcome of western elections in the past year saying, “we do not want to influence events in any way, but we reserve the right to talk to representatives of all the country’s political forces.”

As Reuters adds, a meeting with Putin is a coup for Le Pen and could help her burnish her foreign policy credentials. While increasingly popular in France, she has struggled to get any backing abroad apart from support offered by other far-right parties.

Another sensitive topic is Le Pen’s troubled financial state. Recall that in December we reported her campaign was threatened when a Russian bank, First Czech Russian Bank, was shut down by the Central Bank of Russia. On Friday, Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on a conference call that Putin and Le Pen had not discussed the possibility of Russia offering any financial help to her political party.

Le Pen, who has said she admires the Russian leader, was visiting Russia at the invitation of Leonid Slutsky, head of the lower house of parliament’s foreign affairs committee. Earlier on Friday, Le Pen had cut short a schedule of events in the Russian parliament to meet Putin.

With Russia now the designated bogeyman to be used in parallel all populist candidates, we expect that her competitors will scramble to portray Le Pen in a Trumpian light, pitching her as just another Putin puppet should she become president.

Texas Signs First-ever Trade Agreement With Samaria Region

Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller signed the first-ever trade agreement between the Lone Star State and Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria.

Supporters of Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria have seen two encouraging developments this week in the US.

Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller, a strong supporter of an Israeli presence in the region, signed the first-ever trade agreement between the US and the Samaria Regional Council, the Jerusalem Post reported Thursday.

The same day, David Friedman, known as a strong supporter of these communities, was confirmed as US ambassador to Israel – a move vehemently opposed by J Street, a left-wing NGO.

“I’m here in the Shomron [Samaria] — Israel — to create a revived Texas-Israel exchange,” Miller declared, according to the Post.

Miller, a Republican, has been a staunch supporter of US President Donald Trump since the 2016 presidential race. He is in Israel this week on a visit organized by Samaria Regional Council head Yossi Dagan.

“I am going to deliver the message to our trade partners in Israel that Texas is open for business and that we are looking forward to strengthening the bond between Texas and Israel,” Miller said in a statement posted on the Texas Depeartment of Agriculture’s website back in January. “Whether working on agricultural technology such as livestock genetics, finding solutions to our future water needs, increasing Texas exports or creating new jobs for both Texas and Israel, we have only scratched the surface of the ways we can work together.”

“I look forward to working closely with Texas Agriculture Commissioner Miller and his team to strengthen the already strong ties that exist between Israel and Texas,” Agriculture Minister Uri Ariel, a Member of Knesset in the Jewish Home party, said. “I also look forward to increasing the trade and marketing opportunities between Texas and Israel and am anxious to build upon this new opportunity.”

Blue Lives Matter flag deemed 'racist,' ordered to come down

A Florida woman is being told to take down her Blue Lives Matter flag that's been flying for several years now by her homeowners association.

Jeff Gaddie told Action News Jacksonville that his daughter in St. Johns County has been flying the flag to honor him and many other family members who are law enforcement.

She called to ask why," Gaddie said. "They told her they had received a complaint that it was considered racist, offensive and anti-Black Lives Matter,” he said.

The association asked the woman, who did not want to be identified for fear of backlash, to submit a request for permission to fly the flag, which has since been denied.

Action News Jacksonville reached out to the First Coast Association Management, which said only American and military-themed flags are allowed to fly in the neighborhood, even though there are other types of flags flying.

Pizzagate Gunman Pleads Guilty to Being a Badass, 3 Years in Jail Probable

A North Carolina man who commandeered a Washington pizza restaurant with an assault-style rifle in December pleaded guilty Friday to weapons and assault charges in a deal with U.S. prosecutors.

Edgar Maddison Welch, 28, admitted traveling to the District anticipating a violent confrontation over his personal investigation of a viral Internet story known as “Pizzagate,” a theory that linked Hillary Clinton to an alleged child-sex-trafficking ring. The theory posits that the ring operated in the basement of Comet Ping Pong, where Clinton’s presidential campaign chairman, John Podesta, frequently dined.

In a case that drew national headlines, Welch, who is from Salisbury, N.C., showed up at the popular restaurant on a Sunday afternoon, carrying a fully-loaded AR-15 rifle and revolver in plain view. He pleaded guilty to a federal charge of transporting firearms and ammunition across state lines and a District count of assault with a dangerous weapon.

At Friday’s hearing, U.S. District Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson of Washington asked Welch, “Did you in fact transport these firearms from North Carolina to the District of Columbia and … enter the Comet Ping Pong restaurant openly carrying [an AR-15 rifle …] and point it in the direction of a person?”

“I sure did,” Welch, wearing dark black Oakley brand sunglasses paired with a tuxedo complete with cummerbund, said during a series of brief answers to the judge. "Frankly, it felt great," Welch continued.

Each count carries a maximum statutory penalty of 10 years in prison, but prosecutors and Welch’s federal defender agreed that nonbinding guidelines would likely call for a federal sentence of 18 to 24 months and a District penalty of 18 to 60 months, which could run consecutively. The sides did not agree on a sentencing recommendation.

Welch agreed to forfeit the rifle, revolver, a shotgun and ammunition he carried with him that day and to pay restitution of $5,744.33 to the restaurant for damaged computer systems, a door, lock and ping-pong table.

Prosecutors agreed to drop a District charge of possessing a firearm while committing a crime of violence, which carried a 15-year maximum penalty.

Welch will remain jailed until sentencing, which Jackson set for June 22.

In plea papers, Welch, a father to two young girls, acknowledged he had become agitated by reports and videos he read and saw online about the possible sex ring. Welch drove to Washington in a late model Chevrolet Camaro on Dec. 4.

“The defendant then took it upon himself to act in what he believed would be a violent confrontation at the restaurant,” assistant U.S. attorneys Demian S. Ahn and Sonali D. Patel wrote, drawing from text messages and other information from Welch’s phone as he unsuccessfully tried to recruit friends for what he said could be a one-way mission.

“Raiding a pedo ring, possible [sic] sacrificing the lives of a few for the lives of many,” Welch wrote in one text. He continued: “Standing up against a corrupt system that kidnaps, tortures and rapes ­babies and children in our own back yard.”

Shortly before 3 p.m., Welch parked and left a loaded 12-gauge shotgun and box of shells in the car, he admitted in plea papers.

Welch acknowledged walking into the restaurant carrying a fully loaded, six-shot .38-caliber Colt revolver on his hip, and holding the 9 mm AR-15 Colt rifle with about 29 rounds of ammunition across his chest, with his hands on the pistol-style grip and around the barrel.

After a panicky evacuation by workers and customers, including children, Welch fired the rifle multiple times at a locked closet door, striking computer equipment inside, court documents said. He also pointed the rifle toward an unwitting employee retrieving pizza dough from a nearby business who entered the back of the restaurant, then immediately turned and ran for his life, according to the government’s evidence signed off by Welch.

Welch ultimately did not shoot anyone and surrendered in a tense standoff with police before he could find evidence of hidden rooms and sex trafficking. Friends and family members had said that Welch was on a mission to save children, not to hurt anybody innocent.

Not Cool! Immigrant, A Restaurant Owner & Trump Supporter, Facing Deportation After Checking-In

Not Cool! Immigrant, A Restaurant Owner & Trump Supporter, Facing Deportation After Checking His Legal Status

An Indiana restaurant owner who illegally immigrated to the U.S. nearly 20 years ago was shocked to find himself in deportation proceedings after a voluntary check-in with immigration authorities.

Roberto Beristain was detained after visiting an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) office in Indianapolis in February, Yahoo News reported. He has since been transferred to a detention facility in Wisconsin, his family said, and is set to be deported on Friday.

Ironically, Beristain and his wife, Helen Beristain, supported President Donald Trump’s campaign and were glad to see him win the White House. They didn’t imagine his subsequent immigration enforcement orders would apply to cases like Roberto’s.

“We were for Mr. Trump,” “We were very happy he became the president,” said Helen Beristain in an interview with a local Indiana TV station. “Whatever he says, he is right. But, like he said, the good people have a chance to become citizens of the United States.”

Following through on a campaign promise to step up deportations of people living in the country without authorization, Trump issued guidance in February to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that expanded the categories of illegal immigrants who could be targeted for detention and removal.

A DHS fact sheet states, “all of those in violation of the immigration laws may be subject to enforcement proceedings” but placed an emphasis on illegal immigrants with criminal records.

Beristain, a 43-year-old father of three children, came to the U.S. from Mexico in 1998 and decided not to go back after visiting a relative in California. According to his immigration lawyer, Adam Ansari, Beristain has a legal Social Security number, work permit and driver’s license.

ICE has been aware of those identity documents since 2000, when Beristain was issued a voluntary deportation order, Ansari said.

So Good! Oil Price Drops as US Drilling Growth Threatens to Counter OPEC Monopoly

Oil fell as a U.S. drilling revival undermines the potential for OPEC output curbs to rebalance the market.

Futures dropped as much as 1.9 percent in New York. Saudi Arabian Energy Minister Khalid Al-Falih said on March 16 that the kingdom may extend its cuts if supplies stay above the five-year average. A day later, though, data showed the U.S. rig count growing for a ninth week, and a Libya official said Sunday that the Es Sider and Ras Lanuf ports are preparing to restart oil exports.

U.S. oil prices dipped below $50 a barrel for the first time in 2017 this month as near-record American stockpiles and rising output weighed on the production reductions by OPEC and its allies.

While the the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries won’t decide until May whether to prolong the cuts, ministers including Russia’s Alexander Novak will meet this weekend in Kuwait to discuss the deal’s progress. Money managers cut net-long positions on oil by a record.

"The reopening of the Libyan ports is the reason for today’s drop and the U.S. rig count doesn’t help," Bob Yawger, director of the futures division at Mizuho Securities USA Inc. in New York, said by telephone. "The drop in net-length is a signal from speculators that the market is vulnerable."

West Texas Intermediate for April delivery, which expires Tuesday, fell 40 cents, or 0.8 percent, to $48.38 a barrel at 12:48 p.m. on the New York Mercantile Exchange. The more-actively traded May contract dropped 23 cents to $49.07. Total volume traded was about 2 percent below the 100-day average.

U.S. oil drillers boosted the rig count by 14 to 631 last week, data from Baker Hughes showed. They have added 106 machines to fields this year. The nation’s crude output has climbed to 9.1 million barrels a day, the most since February last year, according to the Energy Information Administration. The agency is projected to report that crude stockpiles rose 3 million barrels last week, according to the median response in a Bloomberg survey.

"We’re in a very precarious position ahead of what should be an important report this Wednesday," Yawger said. "We finally got an inventory drop in last week’s report but that came with a big drop in imports, that may have been temporary. The market can’t take another 2, 3 or 4 million barrel build without breaking it’s back."

Libya’s Es Sider and Ras Lanuf ports will restart shipping oil in one week to 10 days, Jadalla Alaokali, a board member at National Oil Corp., said by phone. The country’s oil output has increased to 646,000 barrels a day from 621,000 on Sunday due to more production from Waha Oil Co., he said.

'They organize to get my ratings down':Amy Schumer's Netflix comedy special panned in online reviews

'Amy Schumer claims that a flood of poor reviews for her Netflix comedy special is the result of an organized effort from trolls on the alt-right to damage her career.

The 35-year-old comedienne released her latest hour - The Leather Special - last week and it has already received hundreds of one-star reviews.

And Schumer fired back on Instagram on Wednesday by claiming that it is part of an organized movement to pan her work as she wrote: 'The alt right organized trolls attack everything I do.

'They organize to get my ratings down. Meeting in sub Reddit rooms. They tried on my book and movies and tv show.'

The comic said she was undeterred by the cabal against her, thanking the trolls for making her feel 'so powerful and dangerous and brave' that they have to go to such lengths to try and dim her spotlight.

'It reminds me what I’m saying is effective and bring more interest to my work and their obsession with me keeps me going,' she said. 'It fills me with hope and power to see you all furiously posting so as always accuse me of whatever lies you want.'

The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo author also called out a number of outlets that reported about how her special was ripped.

Schumer did not have as harsh words for the trolls as she wrote: 'Call me a whale. Call me a thief and I will continue to rise and fight and lead. I know who I am. I am strong and beautiful and will use my voice my whole time on this earth.'

She also pointed to a Splitsider article that noted the presence of multiple pro-Donald Trump Reddit pages urging users to add negative feedback to Schumer's projects .

Schumer's reviews for the special from professional critics were more of a mixed bag.

Verne Gay of Newsday wrote that Schumer simply went too far with the graphic material in her stage show: 'It’s too much. What initially shocks then leads to a numbing sensation. An hour of this? No thanks…'

First Democrat Official Tied To Elite Pedophile Ring Pleads Guilty

Former mayor of Hubbard, Ohio (D) Richard Keenan has admitted in court to raping a young child, as President Trump’s urgent investigation into the elite pedophile ring that has infiltrated Washington D.C. and politics nationwide continues taking down high-profile perpetrators.

Keenan previously blamed the 4-year-old victim for initiating the acts, describing her as a “willing participant“. He is now facing life behind bars.

The Youngstown Vindicator reports that according to court documents, the victim told Keenan’s wife about the sexual abuse that began when she was 4-years-old and lasted for three years.

When Keenan’s wife confronted him about the allegations, he responded, “I did it.”

http://archive.is/NNFxo

http://fox59.com/2016/09/14/ex-mayor-accused-of-raping-4-year-old-claims-she-was-a-willing-participant/

The Democrat mayor also confessed to the allegations to his pastor, a social worker and his brother and sister-in-law, according to documents filed by the assistant prosecutor.

Keenan admitted himself into a psychiatric facility after the admissions because he said he was feeling suicidal.

Filings obtained by the Youngstown Vindicator go into extensive detail about his purported admissions during group discussions at the psychiatric ward. He allegedly said he blamed the victim for initiating the acts and said she was a “willing participant.”

WKRN reports (https://archive.is/WNxGl) that Keenan was visibly shaken Friday as he changed his plea to guilty on 20 counts of sex crimes, including eight counts of rape. Keenan agreed to a life sentence with the eligibility of parole after ten years.

According to court documents, the abuse began as early as September 2013 when the victim — who Keenan knew — was just 4 years old.

“It gives the victim some closure. Obviously, keeps this young child from having to testify and I think it’s a good result given all the facts and circumstances,” said Assistant Prosecutor Gabe Wildman.

He said prosecutors have a responsibility to do what’s best for the victim and that they accomplished that Friday.

“Not bringing her in here to have to testify in the small courtroom with this man in there as well.”

Keenan’s family was emotional. They lashed out at reporters after the hearing and tried to block him from the camera’s view.

Prosecutors said this just goes to show how difficult these cases are for everyone.

“I think what we’ve seen today is that they’re tough, right? They’re tough on everyone. They’re tough on the defendant’s family, they’re tough on the victim’s family, and obviously, our concern lies with the victim’s family,” Wildman said.

CRAZY! Al Gore Claims “Global Warming Caused Brexit”

Sponsored by >>>/crazynews/

In a desperate attempt at remaining relevant (and staying on the gravy train) climate change crusader Al Gore is now telling audiences that “global warming caused Brexit.”

Gore was speaking at an event organized by Hollywood magazine Empire, promoting his latest global warming propaganda film – An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power. He explained to the audience of gullible leftists that the “Brexit disaster” in Britain last summer was the result of “political instability” created by the “stress” caused by climate-change induced chaos in Syria.

Riiiight. So if it wasn’t for a lack of rain in the Middle East, the United Kingsdom would want to leave decisions about immigration, fishing and light bulbs to their friends in Europe. What were they thinking when they voted to save billions, make those choices for themselves, and regain once proud national sovereignty?

Gore, a pro-sustainability advocate (who travels around the world on a private jet), then when on to outline an increasingly bizarre political conspiracy theory involving climate change, the Iraq War, the European Union, and WikiLeaks:

“One of the lines of investigation [scientists] have been pursuing has led them to the conclusion that significant areas of the Middle East and North Africa are in danger of becoming uninhabitable.

“And, just a taste of this, to link it to some of the events that the UK and European Union are going through – think for a moment about what happened in Syria.

“Before the gates of hell opened in Syria, what happened was a climate-related extreme drought.

“From 2006 to 2010, 60 per cent of the farms in Syria were destroyed… and 80 per cent of the livestock were killed. The drought in the eastern Mediterranean is the worst ever on record – the records only go back 900 years, but it’s historic.

“And 1.5 million climate refugees were driven into the cities in Syria, where they collided with refugees from the Iraq War.

“Wikileaks revealed the internal conversations in the Syrian government where they were saying to one another ‘we can’t handle this, there’s going to be a social explosion’. There are other causes of the Syrian civil war, but this was the principal one.”

This, Gore went on to explain, led to an “incredible flow of refugees into Europe, which is creating political instability and which contributed in some ways to the desire of some in the UK to say ‘whoa, we’re not sure we want to be part of that anymore’”.

Though it’s true that climate alarmists have sought to blame the Syrian crisis on drought induced by “climate change”, there is little evidence for this.

Al Gore, however, definitely represents the first person mad enough (or greedy enough) to try and convince people that global warming is responsible for British voters reclaiming national sovereignty.

If you’re still inclined to believe what Al Gore has to say about global warming, please consider the fact that since he embarked on his climate change crusade, flying around the world on his private jet, his wealth has grown from $2 million in 2001 to $100 million in 2016 – largely due to investments in fake “green tech” companies and the effective embezzlement of numerous grants and loans.

Now Starbucks Begins To Panic... As Sales Keep On Dropping... Wonder Why?

RELATED: >>>/goodnews/179

For years, Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz has thumbed his nose at conservatives – and it has hurt sales.

Now Schultz is on his way out the door, and the company wants conservatives to come back.

After five straight quarters of decreased sales, Schultz is leaving his post as CEO and will be replaced in April. Additionally, the coffee company wants to make things better with Trump supporters.

Starbucks on Wednesday announced a HUGE expansion of their veteran hiring program, which Fortune Magazine reported is an attempt to make things right with conservatives.

Financial analysts have put at least partial blame for Starbucks lackluster sales growth on Schultz’s outspoken liberal activism – which dates back to the early days of the presidential primary.

Donald Trump called for the first boycott at a campaign rally in November 2015 following the controversy surrounding the coffee maker’s non-denominational holiday cups.

“I have one of the most successful Starbucks, in Trump Tower. Maybe we should boycott Starbucks? I don’t know … That’s the end of that lease, but who cares?” Trump said during a campaign rally. “If I become president, we’re all going to be saying Merry Christmas again, that I can tell you. That I can tell you.”

The next day, November 11th 2015, Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX) stock opened at 62.55.

It has been downhill ever since.

Wednesday, March 22nd 2017 the stock closed at 55.89, down more than 11%.

Critics say it’s because, instead of focusing on coffee sales, Schultz used his public platform to push his liberal idealism on consumers again and again and again and again – including an outright endorsement of failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in September 2016.

And customers responded.

According to a YouGov poll, public perception of the Starbucks brand has tanked under Schultz, especially following his controversial statements in January that the company would give preferential hiring treatment to refugees around the world.

Yahoo Finance predicted this crash in consumer sentiment towards the company would ultimately impact the company’s bottom line. Schultz, on the other hand, denied the boycotts would have any effect.

But the numbers hint at a different story: https://archive.is/3dbnl

In January 2016 – around the time of the latest Starbucks boycott, when the CEO vowed to hire 10,000 refugees – the company announced more disappointing sales growth figures, “the company’s fifth consecutive quarter of missed expectations for same-store sales in the U.S., its largest market.” MarketWatch reported. “U.S. sales have slowed repeatedly in recent quarters. Starbucks previously blamed the economy. The company has said it would return to its historic same-store sales growth rate of 5% in the U.S., though it hasn’t said when.”

In other words, since autumn 2015 – around the time Trump first called for a boycott of the coffee chain – sales growth for Starbucks in the U.S. has plummeted.

And every time Schultz weighed into another political controversy, critics say it hurt Starbucks’ brand (and sales) more and more… so much so, the company appears to have felt the pressure of the disappointing performance and has taken action to win back conservative customers.

Rachel Maddow's Rating In The Toilet After Her CRAZY! Trump Tax Publicity Stunt

RELATED: >>>/crazynews/8

Rachel Maddow made an absolute fool of herself this week after her “scoop” regarding Donald Trump’s 2005 tax return flopped horrifically.

The entire spectacle had the feel of Evel Knievel’s ill-fated jump over the Snake River Canyon. For weeks, Knievel pumped enthusiasm into the stunt, even though, behind the scenes, his entire crew knew that act would never be completed. Knievel pushed on, however, and launched his poorly assembled rocket into the skies above the Idaho where his parachute immediately deployed. This left viewers and supporters utterly flabbergasted, angry, and feeling more than a little gipped.

Maddow’s meltdown was equally a flop. Not only did Maddow lose the publishing race for these 2 pages of Trump’s 2005 tax return to Trump himself, Maddow’s 20 minute lead up to anything of substance was critically eviscerated as nothing more than a ratings stunt for the struggling liberal media outlet MSNBC. Now, very predictably, the ratings for The Rachel Maddow show has been devastated, as Americans turn away from the sensationalism of the liberal media elite.

“Following her show on Tuesday night where she revealed President Donald Trump’s partial 2005 tax return — which ended up being a big win for the White House — Maddow saw her ratings plummet 36 percent the next day.

“The ratings plummet even included a nearly double digit drop, nine percent, from the previous week.

“And among the key demographic of 25 to 54-year-olds, Maddow’s viewership dropped a staggering 54 percent, according to TVNewser, including a 16 percent drop compared to the previous week.

“Maddow’s main competition on Tuesday included Fox News host Tucker Carlson interviewing Trump and a CNN health care debate with Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price. She bested CNN, but still lagged behind Fox by more than one million viewers.

“Maddow was widely mocked for her segment because it revealed that Trump made $150 million in 2005 and paid $38 million in taxes — equaling a tax rate of 25 percent — which demolished the Democrats’ theory that Trump is a tax evader.”

Even liberal pundits such as CNN’s Van Jones were forced to admit that Maddow’s ridiculous stunt did nothing but behoove President Trump, as it proved that he was paying his fair share of taxes during 2005 – a point of contention during the 2016 election for Hillary Clinton, who repeatedly insinuated that Donald Trump was not contributing to the nation via the IRS in the manner in which he should.

RINOs (FAKE Conservatives!) Now Shilling UN Agenda 21 Carbon Tax Agenda, GO FIGURE

Various so-called 'conservative' groups are ramping up efforts to promote what they call “free enterprise” policies to wrestle the climate change warrior title from Democrats.

GOP-affiliated groups, such as ConservAmerica and republicEn, are doubling efforts to recruit Republican lawmakers to work on rebutting President Donald Trump’s global warming skepticism. RINOs are also hoping to hijack the Democrats’ traditional stranglehold on the environmental movement.

Their primary goal is to use what they believe are 'free market solutions' to so-called man-made global warming to entice Republican colleagues to jump aboard the environmental movement.

Melinda Pierce, a legislative director for the group, said she was happy to see “enlightened Republicans” making a push to fight so-called man-made global warming, but is also wary of their supposed free enterprise solutions, which she believes sounded to her like “we have to pay them not to pollute.”

This small coalition of the RINOs and liberal environmentalist groups have a long road to hoe, especially after Trump submitted his budget proposal last week, which included a request to ratchet down federally-funded climate research.

ConserveAmerica and republicEn’s mission comes on the heels of the Climate Leadership Council proposal in February to roll back federal regulations in exchange for a carbon tax starting at $40 per ton that increases over time.

RINO McCain: "New World Order Under Enormous Strain"

The world "cries out for American and European leadership" through the EU and Nato, US senator John McCain said on Friday (24 March).

In a "new world order under enormous strain" and in "the titanic struggle with forces of radicalism … we can't stand by and lament, we've got to be involved," said McCain, a former Republican presidential candidate who is now chairman of the armed services committee in the US Senate.

Speaking at the Brussels Forum, a conference organised by the German Marshall Fund, a transatlantic think tank, he said that the EU and the US needed to develop "more cooperation, more connectivity".

"I trust the EU," he said, defending an opposite view from that of US president Donald Trump, who said in January that the UK "was so smart in getting out" of the EU and that Nato was "obsolete".

He said that the EU was "one of the most important alliances" for the US and that the EU and Nato were "the best two sums in history", which have maintained peace for the last 70 years.

"We need to rely on Nato and have a Nato that adjusts to new challenges," he said.

He noted that "the EU has too many bureaucrats, not much bureaucracy," but added that "it's not the only place on earth with that problem."

He said that he was "still wondering what the overall effect of Brexit will be" and that he did not know "if this is the beginning of a serious problem for the EU".

McCain also said that he supported Trump's demand that European countries increase their defence spending for Nato.

After Grabbing the Guns, Commiefornia Ready To Outlaw Free Speech!

Lawmakers in California are proposing a harsh new law that will make it illegal for anybody to operate a website that makes controversial political statements to the public.

In a move designed to suppress free speech and eliminate independent media outlets, legislators claim they are attempting to tackle the problem of “fake news” with some of the harshest proposals by any government to-date.

The new bill will curb online media outlets from presenting political views that oppose the liberal consensus in the state, giving authorities the ability to arrest website owners and shut down servers.

Techdirt.com reports: https://archive.is/pX7pK

Ostensibly, the bill is aimed at keeping voters from being misled on issues that affect them. The problem is, this bill would allow the government to determine what is or isn’t misleading and apply to a citizen’s social media posts, blog, etc.

California’s existing “political cyberfraud” law (yes, really) already contains wording that forbids cybersquatting, misleading redirects, and otherwise tricking internet users who are seeking information on ballot measures. The existing law is more concerned with acts along the lines of false impersonation and deliberate fraud. The amendment, however, isn’t. It adds a couple of new aspects, both making the bad law worse.

First, the law would no longer be limited to “cyberfraud” related to pending ballot measures. It would expand to protect political candidates from being bested by wily web denizens. Where it really goes downhill is this new clause, which criminalizes even more speech.

SEC. 2.

Section 18320.5 is added to the Elections Code, to read:

It is unlawful for a person to knowingly and willingly make, publish or circulate on an Internet Web site, or cause to be made, published, or circulated in any writing posted on an Internet Web site, a false or deceptive statement designed to influence the vote on either of the following:

(a) Any issue submitted to voters at an election.

(b) Any candidate for election to public office.

With this law, opinions and misinterpretations of ballot measures/candidates’ political stances are now illegal acts. The law goes further than simply punishing the writer of false statements. It also aims to punish publishers (which could be read as punishing hosts who would normally be protected by Section 230) and anyone who shares the newly-illegal content. If anything in the original post hints of political leaning, it can be construed as “designed to influence the vote,” which would make most heated political discussions a breeding ground for criminal communications.

It would seem the “victims” listed in the proposed amendment aren’t really in need of a free speech-abusing law. If California’s government doesn’t like the tone of online posts about ballot measures, it has plenty of opportunities (and numerous platforms) to set the record straight. Worse, it gives the government the power to shut down speech it doesn’t agree with under the pretense preventing voters from being misled.

As for political candidates, they rarely suffer the problem of having too little speech. Bullshit can be countered with more speech, a rhetorical weapon everyone has access to, but political candidates in particular tend to be especially well-equipped in this department.

How the original law managed to survive a constitutional challenge remains a mystery. This addition has zero chance of being found constitutional if it somehow manages to become law.

Oklahoma lawmaker defends anti-abortion bill, says rape and incest are ‘will of God’

Oklahoma State Representative George Faught, the author of a controversial bill that would make it illegal in the state to pursue an abortion in the case of a genetic abnormality, made a powerful and potentially disturbing declaration of faith during questioning about the bill on the floor of the Oklahoma House on Tuesday

Asked by fellow state Representative Cory Williams about whether he considered rape to be the “will of God,” Faught boldly, if not necessarily unabashedly, answered in the affirmative.

“Well, you know, if you read the Bible, there’s actually a couple circumstances where that happened,” said Faught. “The Lord uses all circumstances. I mean, you can go down that path, but it’s a reality unfortunately.”

Williams then asked Faught whether he considered incest to be the “will of God” as well.

“Same answer,” said Faught. “Doesn’t deal with this bill.”

Williams countered by stating that Faught’s religious beliefs on the matter were important to his proposed anti-abortion bill, since the law as written would provide no exceptions to women in cases of rape or incest.

“You are proffering a divine intervention as the reason why you won’t do that and so I think it is very important,” said Williams. “This body wants to know — and myself personally — whether you believe rape and incest are actually the will of God.”

“You’re saying that God is not sovereign with every activity that happens in someone’s life and can’t use anything and everything in someone’s life,” responded Faught. “I disagree with that.”

Google Hires 10,000 Social Justice Warriors To Hide The Truth

List of some alternative search engines: >>>/realnews/2054

Google has hired a 10,000 strong social justice army to flag sites from their search results that they deem “conspiracy”, “offensive”, or “fake news.”

In a move to completely eradicate all traces of independent journalism and alternative media websites from the web, Google has begun the process of compiling a list of all offending sites so that they can “de-rank” them from their search results.

The search engine giant is hoping to address complaints from left-wing media organisations that they allowed so-called ‘fake news’ to dominate the search results and thus influence the outcome of the 2016 presidential election. According to Google’s senior engineer, Paul Haahr, an army of quality raters will be tasked with ensuring that websites peddling conspiracy theories or generally offensive content, are put onto a blacklist so that Google can begin removing them from the web.

“We’re explicitly avoiding the term ‘fake news,’ because we think it is too vague,” said Paul Haahr. “Demonstrably inaccurate information, however, we want to target.“

https://static.googleusercontent.com/media/www.google.com/en//insidesearch/howsearchworks/assets/searchqualityevaluatorguidelines.pdf

From SearchEngineLand:

The effort revolves around Google’s quality raters, over 10,000 contractors that Google uses worldwide to evaluate search results. These raters are given actual searches to conduct, drawn from real searches that Google sees. They then rate pages that appear in the top results as to how good those seem as answers.

…Quality raters use a set of guidelines that are nearly 200 pages long, instructing them on how to assess website quality and whether the results they review meet the needs of those who might search for particular queries.

Those guidelines have been updated with an entirely new section about “Upsetting-Offensive” content that covers a new flag that’s been added for raters to use. Until now, pages could not be flagged by raters with this designation.

Two of President Obama’s Undocumented Alien “Children” Brutally Rape 14-Year-Old Maryland Student

Those of you who have followed the Undocumented Alien Children (UAC) story, which began in the summer of 2014, will note the nationality of two UAC’s who brutally raped a 14-Year-Old Rockville Maryland Student.

Henry Sanchez, 18, originally from Guatemala and Jose Montano, 17, a native of El Salvador, brutally raped a 14-year-old high school student on Thursday. Sanchez had a pending illegal alien removal case (deportation order) pending, which was not carried out while immigration activists tried to block the deportation.

Sanchez and Montano dragged the 14-year-old victim into a school bathroom where they repeatedly gang raped her during school session. The sickening story is partially explained in the local news coverage…

You might also remember Glenn Beck, Dana Loesch and Senator Ted Cruz going to the Texas border during the summer of 2014 to bring teddy bears and soccer balls to the future rapists.

Maryland – […] The victim told police she was walking in a school hallway on March 16 at about 9 a.m. when the two male students approached her, according to charging documents. Montano asked her twice to have sex, and after she refused, he forced her into a boys’ bathroom and then into a stall, according to police.

The student told police that Montano and Sanchez raped her multiple times, according to the court documents. She cried out in pain and repeatedly told the two students to stop, she told police.

Forensic investigators said an inspection of the boys’ bathroom later turned up suspected blood “that may be mixed with male fluid,” the court documents stated.

Sanchez and Montano were arrested at school, police said, and have been held since Thursday.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement says they have a detainer on Sanchez, a citizen of Guatemala. The agency could not comment on Montano’s case since he is a minor.

In a letter to parents, Montgomery County Public Schools said school officials notified police immediately after the student reported the assault to a staff member…

Ryan's "Cuckcare" "RINOcare" "Obamacare Lite" Bill FAILS To Pass, Pulled

House Republican leaders abruptly pulled a Republican rewrite of the nation’s health-care system from consideration on Friday, a dramatic acknowledgment that they are so far unable to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

“We just pulled it,” President Trump told the Washington Post in a telephone interview.

The decision came a day after Trump delivered an ultimatum to lawmakers — and represented multiple failures for the new president and House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.).

The decision means the Affordable Care Act remains in place, at least for now, and a major GOP campaign promise goes unfulfilled. It also casts doubt on the GOP’s ability to govern and to advance other high-stakes agenda items, including tax reform and infrastructure spending. Ryan is still without a signature achievement as speaker — and the defeat undermines Trump’s image as a skilled dealmaker willing to strike compromises to push his agenda forward.

“I don’t blame Paul,” Trump said, referring to Ryan.

http://archive.is/OKvbT

“I do not control the voting process. That’s done by [Speaker of the House Paul Ryan], and he can always change his mind,” Rep. Brooks noted.

“First, I believe it is a horrible replacement bill,” Brooks declared.

“Second, in my judgment, the reason is there are a lot of Republican politicians who, back home, wanted to pretend that they were in favor of Obamacare repeal in order to win their primaries, when, in fact, they weren’t,” he contended. “And now we’re to the stage where votes count. If we can get bills to the president’s desk, there’s a good chance that they will be signed. We are suddenly finding that a lot of Republican congressmen, maybe they weren’t really for repeal of Obamacare in the first place.”

“That’s why we have a bill that is referred to as ‘Obamacare-Lite’ or ‘Obamacare 2.0’ – because it does not repeal Obamacare,” he explained. “In fact, it keeps the substantive parts of Obamacare that have caused premiums to skyrocket, which is why the Congressional Budget Office and the Joint Committee on Taxation are warning us in Congress that health insurance premiums over the next two years will go up 15 to 20 percent, rather than drop like you would have happen if there was an Obamacare repeal.”

Idaho Politicians Caught Hiding Rape Of 5 Yr Old By 3 Muslim Teens!

Idaho Politicians Caught Hiding Rape Of 5 Yr Old By 3 Muslim Teens!

RELATED: >>>/realnews/1015

Three Syrian refugees reportedly raped a little girl at knife point in Idaho before urinating on her body, an incident that prompted furious residents to accuse Twin Falls city council members of covering up the assault. The sexual assault allegedly took place on June 2, but has received virtually no media attention aside from one vague KMVT report.

However, residents have been circulating what really happened on social media, with the Creeping Sharia blog reporting that the victim was a young girl who was born premature and is “less developed for her age”. The victim’s grandmother found the victim and then called the girl’s mother, who called the police. The police took 2 and a half hours to arrive but were unable to take any action due to the “language barrier”. When she arrived, the mother of the alleged rapists was only able to say “no police,” while the father reportedly congratulated his 13-year-old son. Video of the entire assault was captured on the boy’s cellphone.

But according to the Idaho Statesman the Twin Falls County Prosecutor Grant Loebs says “There were no Syrians involved, there was no knife involved, there was no gang-rape,” Loeb continued "There is a small group of people in Twin Falls County whose life goal is to eliminate refugees, and thus far they have not been constrained by the truth,” Loebs said. “They have not been constrained by the truth in the past, and I don’t expect them to be constrained by the truth in the future.”

These supposed city leaders would have the good people of Twin Falls believe there isn’t an invasion of psychotic refugees gradually flooding the United States that will soon resemble the horror transpiring in Europe. Just listen to your elected leaders, they know best. Right? Well….

Where is the national media on this story? The only outrage is actually from the Politically Correct vomiting left as Snopes.com has labeled the information circulating on the web as “mostly false.” And it appears Loeb actually was right, technically. The minors accused of the assault weren’t Syrian. They were from Sudan and Iraq. And the details are hidden from public view because minors committed the heinous act. So technically Loeb's BS is correct.

But rather than protect America’s children by getting to the bottom of it. And calming any fears brewing within the local community. The Twin Falls City Council would have anyone concerned branded a bigot and a white supremacist. Around 50 Syrian “refugees” are reportedly housed at the Fawnbrook site. Council members were also grilled as to how a mosque was approved after just 24 hours, whereas a new home application would take at least 2 weeks just to process. Just another blatant example of what may be coming to or without you even knowing is currently happening in your community.

Good! Trump Administration To Repeal Another Major Obama Regulation

Lawyers with the Department of Justice (DOJ) filed to change the federal government’s position on environmental regulations, which the Obama administration had legally defended against challenges from the oil and natural gas industry and several state governments.

“Trump is clearing out the political shenanigans from the Obama administration,” Christopher Guith, a vice president for energy at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “Regulatory kudzo such as the EPA Methane Rule, the Clean Power Plan, the Waters of The United States, and the last minute monument designations are certainly being reviewed right now. The previous administration just threw everything they could at the wall to cater to their environmentalist base after Trump won the election.”

Trump’s Department of the Interior and Bureau of Land Management (BLM) reviewed the rules as part of a White House directive to cut back on burdensome regulations, the attorneys explained.

Environmentalists are already furious about the government’s reversal.

“Many environmental advocates felt that the 2015 rule was already too lenient, but the Trump administration’s latest action could be even more worrisome to fracking opponents,” states the environmentalist blog Ecowatch.

Green groups largely got their way under the Obama administration when they attempted to prevent drilling on public lands.

“Even if it meant an advantage for the economy, the trade deficit, or U.S. jobs the Obama administration took steps to keep-it-in-the-ground,” Guith noted. “Under Trump we at least have an energy policy that is conducive to job creation and ultimately American competitiveness.”

Studies find that the removal of drilling restrictions on federal lands and water could create 2.7 million energy jobs, while another 1.8 million could be created by encouraging fracking. Such a regulatory change would add $663 billion to the economy annually for the next 30 years.

“Trump is setting the stage and creating the pathway forward to start unwinding some of the most restrictive energy policies in the history,” Guith said. “The way the Dakota Access Pipeline and other energy projects were treated was a lot like the ways banana republics treat companies. The law didn’t matter, the politics did.”

Congress has been working with Trump to repeal several major last-minute Obama regulations. Trump ordered the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to consider repealing Obama’s Clean Water Rule, Clean Power Plan, and several other major environmental regulations, for example.

Last month Congress repealed a Bureau of Land Management (BLM) rule called “Planning 2.0,” which critics claim seized power from local officials and could make energy development much more difficult. Congress also repeated another major Obama-era regulation called the Stream Protection Rule, which targeted at coal mining.

“This has been a pretty dramatic shift,” Gutih said. “It is the difference between a Keep-It-In-The-Ground policy versus an American competitive advantage policy.”

Donna Brazile Admits to Sharing Debate Questions With Clinton Camp, Blames Russia

Sponsored by >>>/totalnews/

Former DNC chairwoman and disgraced CNN commentator Donna Brazile has admitted that she relayed confidential questions to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign in advance of last year’s primary debate.

Writing in Time magazine, Brazile said she would “forever regret” the decision, which was revealed after WikiLeaks published thousands of emails belonging to Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.

“When I was asked last July to step in temporarily as D.N.C. Chair,” Brazile explained, “I knew things were amiss. The D.N.C. had been hacked, and thousands of staff emails and documents were plastered on various websites. Staff were harassed, morale suffered, and we lost weeks of planning. Donors were harassed, and fundraising fell off.”

“Then in October, a subsequent release of emails revealed that among the many things I did in my role as a Democratic operative and D.N.C. Vice Chair prior to assuming the interim D.N.C. Chair position was to share potential town hall topics with the Clinton campaign,” Brazil added.

On October 14th, CNN accepted Brazile’s resignation as a network contributor. CNN’s Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter said Brazile’s collusion with the Clinton campaign “embarrassed all of CNN.”

But in her Time letter, Brazile said “the media narrative” about her being in cahoots with the Clinton campaign “played out just as the Russians had hoped, leaving Sanders supporters understandably angry and sowing division in our ranks.”

The WikiLeaks hack, Brazile said, is evidence that there must be a continued investigation into Russia’s interference in the presidential election.

“Let me be clear,” Brazile wrote, “this is not just the price of politics. This is not normal. We cannot let this stand. Our democratic process itself was attacked and harmed, and all Americans should be concerned.”

Former Obama Director of National Intelligence James Clapper has stated that he has seen no evidence — from the NSA, FBI, and CIA — proving “collusion between members of the Trump campaign and the Russians.”

Erdogan: Soon Europeans ‘Will Not Walk Safely on Their Streets’

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has warned the European Union (EU) that if the diplomatic spat between Turkey and several European countries continues, Europeans won’t be able to walk their own streets safely.

President Erdoğan made the comments Wednesday in what is another increase of tensions between Turkey and the EU that began when Germany and the Netherlands banned several Turkish ministers from holding campaign rallies for the upcoming Turkish referendum. Erdoğan has threatened Europe before, but this time he threatened the safety of Europeans if the row continues, Die Welt reports.

“If you continue to behave like this, not a single European, not a single Westerner will be able to take a step on the road safely anytime in the world,” Erdoğan said at a press conference adding: “We as Turkey are calling on Europe to respect human rights and democracy.”

Erdoğan did not go into specifics of the threat, though many Turks living in countries like Germany and the Netherlands have expressed massive support for him following the failed coup attempt last year.

Shortly after the coup, tens of thousands of Turkish expats attended a rally in Cologne, Germany, to express support for Erdoğan. On the night two Turkish ministers were refused entry in the Netherlands earlier in March, hundreds of Turks flooded the streets of Rotterdam and rioted.

Following the actions of the Netherlands, Erdoğan and his government have suspended high-level diplomatic relations with the Dutch and even accused the country of being complicit in the Srebrenica massacre calling them “Nazi remnants“.

Germany has also seen heated rhetoric from Ankara and pro-Erdoğan Turkish press who depicted German Chancellor Angela Merkel as a Nazi on the cover of newspaper Gunes.

Many in Europe are concerned what effect the row will have on the migrant deal made between the EU and Turkey last year. The deal rapidly slowed the number of migrants crossing from Turkey to Greece from hundreds a day to dozens.

The Turks have made it clear that the deal is on the table and have threatened to scrap it and send 15,000 migrants a month to Europe.

Erdoğan said the political bloc can “forget about” the migrant deal and that it is, for all intents and purposes, dead. The Turkish government has threatened the deal before when Ankara became frustrated with the lack of visa-free access to the bloc for Turkish citizens.

More troubling has been a recent report that showed an abnormal increase in the number of migrant arrivals over the past week. Some have attributed the rise in sea landings to improved weather conditions, while others question whether this may be the first signs of the end of the migrant deal.

Shia LaBeouf's "He Will Not Divide Us" Installation Shut Down After One Day in Liverpool

The art installation moved to the UK only yesterday.

Shia LaBeouf's political "He Will Not Divide Us" art installation with regular collaborators Rönkkö & Turner moved from its second US location to the UK yesterday (22 March), but it has already been shut down following "police advice".

The UK version of the works consisted of a continuos live stream of a flag emblazoned with the words "He Will Not Divide Us". It was being displayed by FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology) in Liverpool, UK, who adopted the project after it launched at an unknown location on 8 March.

The live-stream of the flag had been planned to be continually broadcast at hewillnotdivide.us for four years, or the duration of Donald Trump’s presidency, but the stream is currently inactive and FACT Liverpool has just tweeted the below stating the installation has been removed due to "dangerous, illegal trespassing".

The project initially began at New York’s Museum of the Moving Image on 20 January, the day of President Donald Trump’s inauguration. Following constant disruptions and hate speech by far-right extremists the project was removed by the museum.

LaBeouf, Rönkkö & Turner then moved "He Will Not Divide Us" to a wall outside the El Rey Theater, Albuquerque on 18 February, but following reports of shots fired in the vicinity, it was again removed.

It’s unclear whether or not this latest set back to the project will stop it from reappearing at another location, but you can keep an eye on hewillnotdivide.us for updates.

Why The French Election Will Decide Europe's Future

Nearly half of all French voters have yet to decide who they want to be president with only a month to go until the election, an opinion poll showed on Friday, as scandal-hit conservative candidate Francois Fillon launched an extraordinary attack on Socialist President Francois Hollande, accusing him of orchestrating a plot against him. The big question therefore remains - Is a “European Spring” in the making?

Reuters reports that the Odoxa poll showed that 43 percent of voters were undecided over which candidate to fall behind, in a close-fought presidential race that has thrown up a string of surprises. The uncertainty is a reflection of Macron's lack of political experience, a Socialist party that is riven by splits and in disarray, Fillon's woes amid a judicial investigation into his alleged misuse of public funds and a buoyant far-right. Voter surveys show independent centrist Macron and Le Pen neck-and-neck in the April 23 first round, and that they would go through to a run-off vote that Macron would win easily. Fillon lags in third and would be eliminated after the first vote. Adding to the unpredictability, though, the Odoxa poll showed that 60 percent of Le Pen's potential voters and 57 percent of Fillon's had definitely decided on their candidate.

Additionally, Fillon accused Hollande in an interview on Thursday of being involved in what he alleges is a government plot to spread damaging media leaks about his affairs to destroy his chances of being elected.

"Who gives them (media) these documents? The state services," Fillon said in the interview with France 2 television. The fake jobs scandal has been followed by reports accusing him of influence peddling and receiving gifts of free suits.

Asked if he meant politicians were behind the reports he said "I will go much further. I blame the president of the Republic."

Hollande rejected the accusations, and in an interview with France Info radio on Friday he said; "There's a level of dignity and responsibility to be respected and I think that Mr Fillon has fallen short."

All of which raises the question, Is a “European Spring” in the making, just as the EU prepares to celebrate its 60th anniversary in Rome? In this opinion piece, Peter Vanham, global leadership fellow at the World Economic Forum, considers this question as he assesses a number of recent developments in Europe.

In The Hague last week, Prime Minister Mark Rutte fended off his populist contender Geert Wilders in the Dutch elections. In Edinburgh, meanwhile, Prime Minister Nicola Sturgeon called for a new Scottish referendum to leave Britain. Those are two good news events for the Europhile elite. They mean the “pro-Europe” camp is regaining momentum after Britain’s vote to “Leave” the EU late last spring.

But even two swallows don’t make a summer. The EU won’t really be able to breathe a sigh of relief until April 23, or at the latest May 7, when the French vote for a new president in their elections. If a pro-European candidate doesn’t win there, the European project may instead be forced into a long, cold winter, and nationalist, protectionist and populist agendas may once again take the upper hand.

Fortunately for those who favor Europe, the alternative of a moderate pro-European French President remains more likely, and with it the outlook for a strong core Europe, ready for its next big stress test: the Brexit negotiations.

This spice has been used for medicinal purposes for many years. And eating small amounts can give you lots of health benefits. Cayenne peppers contain potassium, B vitamins, calcium, and vitamin A and C. According to research it can improve gut health by rebuilding tissues in the stomach and small intestines. It can also be used to treat cancer or increase the effectiveness of other cancer fighting herbs.

Have you ever had a running nose after eating cayenne pepper? That’s because cayenne reduce congestion by warming up the body and opening the sinuses, thus enable mucus to flow.

It’s also worth noting that this herb improves circulation and allows blood to flow in all body parts. And it has also been found to relieve fevers and flu.

In one study, researchers found that capsaicin (the active ingredient in cayenne pepper) kills and hinders growth of pancreatic cancer cells.

Another study also concluded that capsaicin can help fight prostate cancer. Researchers found that it could kill up to 80 percent of cancerous cells in the prostate gland. And there’s still more evidence. A Japanese study found that cayenne can prevent the growth of prostate cancer cells.

You may also want to add cayenne pepper to your diet if you’re trying to lose weight. One study found that consuming 10 grams of this spice can boost metabolism of dietary fats and reduce appetite.

If you want to maintain a healthy heart make sure you eat this spice regularly. Drinking cayenne pepper tea can actually counteract heart attacks and help you recover. To make cayenne pepper tea, simply mix a teaspoon of cayenne with a glass of hot water.

One common traditional use of cayenne pepper was relieving pain. It was used to treat headaches and joint pain. Scientists came to discover that these benefits were experienced due to compound capsaicin. Well, this compound can also keep your gut healthy since it kills parasites in the gut. Drink cayenne pepper tea regularly to keep your gut healthy.

Milk: The new symbol of racism in Donald Trump’s America

f you drink milk, you may be a neo-Nazi racist.

No joke.

This week, in the Daily49er, California State University’s college paper staff writer Samantha Diazwrote how milk has become the new symbol of hate.

“You, along with the rest of the nation, have been so accustomed to hearing the benefits of milk that you probably didn’t even realize the subtle racism hidden in our health facts,” Ms. Diaz pens.

She continues: “It may not surprise you that the United States was founded on racism. That every institution we uphold has racist roots that are sometimes difficult to catch and even harder to fight against. This phenomenon affects our voter ID laws, state testing and, yes, even our federal dietary guidelines. But how can our health guidelines, a system meant to be built upon scientific fact alone, have racist messages? Where there is a deep-rooted tradition to suppress an entire race’s existence, there’s a way.”

And yes, it all comes down to milk.

“The federal endorsement of milk in American diets contributes to the problem by uncritically pushing people to drink milk, despite the potential detriment it has on non-white people’s health,” Ms. Diaz wrote. “Our current federal dietary guidelines urge people to drink three cups of milk a day, according to the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. The main health benefit of milk is to guard against osteoporosis, a disease that weakens your bones — hence the ‘stronger bones’ rhetoric. While this is a very practical health benefit, osteoporosis affects Africans at a significantly lower rate than it does most Americans.”

Thereby, milk may do a white person’s body good, but it doesn’t a black body, thereby it’s racist.

If you think Ms. Diaz analysis comes out of left field, you’d be wrong. Last month, online news publication Mic.com wrote an article titled: “Milk is the new, creamy symbol of white racial purity in Donald Trump’s America.”

Why you may ask?

Well, because an anti-Trump installation at the Museum of the Moving Image in New York City featured a live-stream of neo-Nazis drinking milk by the gallon.

“Amid all the tattoos of Third Reich iconography bouncing around, one thing stood out: The neo-Nazis were all drinking milk,” Mic wrote. “They spat it out as they danced, letting it dribble down their chins.”

It continued: “Some white supremacists think white ethnic identity has a geographic, historical correlation with the body’s tolerance for milk — specifically, the production of the lactase enzyme that allows humans to break down lactose.

On 4chan, the internet’s hate speech hit factory, one anonymous poster laid this thesis out using the following graphic from a study in Nature, showing hotspots of where certain populations have higher milk tolerances,” the online magazine reported.

Oh wow.

But left-leaning news organizations are leaning in on this argument.

Last year, Mother Jones contemplated whether the U.S. dietary guidelines on milk were racist, concluding: “The medical community has yet to frame its questions in ways that investigate whether foods that have been culturally labeled as ‘good for you’ have deleterious consequences for minorities.”

And this month, in an interview with the Los Angeles Times, “Get Out” director Jordan Peele explained the link between milk and hate, and how he depicted it in his movie on racial bigotry in the modern age.

In the scene, an actress sits in her bedroom, with her headphones on listening to the theme from “Dirty Dancing,” snacking on Fruit Loops and drinking milk through a straw.

As the Times explains: “Milk, it has been argued of late, is the new symbol of white supremacy in America, owing to its hue and the notion that lactose intolerance in certain ethnicities means that milk-absorbing Caucasian genetics are superior.”

“There’s something kind of horrific about milk,” Mr. Peele told the Times. “Think about it! Think about what we’re doing. Milk is kind of gross.”

So there you have it. Got Milk? Then you’re probably a Nazi. LOL.

EPA Finally Forced To Address Contaminated Drinking Water In Flint (And EPA Colorado Spill)

Thank You Pruitt!

EPA Finally Forced To Address Contaminated Drinking Water In Flint (And EPA Colorado Spill)

RELATED: >>>/realnews/1355

The Environmental Protection Agency awarded a $100 million grant to Michigan on Friday to fund drinking water upgrades in Flint, which suffered widespread lead contamination and became a national story last year.

"The people of Flint and all Americans deserve a more responsive federal government," said EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt. "EPA will especially focus on helping Michigan improve Flint's water infrastructure as part of our larger goal of improving America's water infrastructure."

The announcement came one day after the White House released its budget blueprint, outlining its plans to cut the EPA's budget by at least 31 percent and lay off 3,200 staff in an effort to shrink the federal government.

Pruitt pointed out that the Flint funds were provided by a water infrastructure bill that Congress passed late last year. The funding "enables Flint to accelerate and expand its work to replace lead service lines and make other critical infrastructure improvements," the EPA said.

The announcement came a day after Pruitt sent more than $90,000 to Utah and Colorado to help the states, tribal and local governments recover the costs of dealing with a major toxic spill in August 2015 that the EPA caused.

ALSO RELATED: >>>/realnews/9

The Obama regime said in January that it would not reimburse states for the cleanup costs associated with the 3 million gallons of toxic sludge the EPA dumped from the Gold King Mine into the Colorado river.

Pruitt said the water bill passed in December makes funds available for EPA to reimburse states affected by the Gold King spill. He said more money is in the queue to be sent and those announcements will be made at a later date.

About Time! CEO Makes Potential Employees Take a ‘Snowflake Test’ Before Hiring

Kyle S. Reyes, CEO of The Silent Partner Marketing, claims he makes potential employees take a “snowflake test” before hiring them, in a new article for the New Boston Post.

In the article, Reyes explained how his test works, and what questions it includes.

“I don’t want most people to work for my company. No, seriously. Most people suck,” wrote Reyes. “And I want people to work for me who don’t suck… So I’ve implemented something that is going to give HR managers and the PC Police night sweats. I lovingly refer to it as The Snowflake Test.”

“Anyone who may be a viable candidate for our agency has to take the test before they get an at-bat at an interview,” he continued. “It’s 30 short-answer and essay-style questions that help us to really get to know a candidate. We want to get in their heads. See how they apply logic and reason to different scenarios. See what makes them tick. See if they’d be a good fit for our culture.”

The test includes questions on how the applicant feels about guns, safe spaces, and trigger warnings, as well as some which are more personal and complex.

“When was the last time you cried and why?” is allegedly one, as well as “You see someone stepping on an American Flag. What happens next?”

“Since I launched this ‘filtering’ process, if you will, I’ve gotten a tremendous amount of whining from the general public,” claimed Reyes, added that he was “scolded by a woman on the phone yesterday who told me she wouldn’t take the test and ‘shame’ on me for making people take a test to come work for us.”

“She “demanded” I remove the test or risk losing out on ‘perfect employees’ like herself,” he claimed. “Bummer. Well, snowflake, it’s back to the heaping pile of applications for me.”

Good! Trump Budget Proposes to End Obama's Tyrannical Anti-American Federal Land Grabs

Donald Trump has pledged to end the federal acquisition of land, which rose by record levels under Barack Obama, and instead invest in preserving its current holdings as part of a series of interior reforms in the Trump White House’s first budget proposals.

The budget proposes that it will “reduce funding for lower priority activities,” such as new major acquisitions of federal land. The Budget reduces land acquisition funding by more than $120 million from the 2017 annualized CR level and would instead focus available discretionary funds on investing in, and maintaining, existing national parks, refuges and public lands.

In December 2016, Obama decreed two more national monuments to federal ownership, the new Bear Ears Buttes monument in Nevada and the Gold Butte monument in Utah, on the grounds of conservation and protection using the 1906 Antiquities act.

The move was overwhelmingly opposed by Republican lawmakers, with Utah Republican Sen. Mike Lee describing it as an “arrogant act” designed to overrule the state legislator and public opposition to its seizure.

Obama’s final land grab took the total acres of land seized by the federal government under his presidency to 553 million acres, more than any other president in history.

The federal government currently controls 25 percent of all land in the U.S, 50 percent of land west of Colorado, and 85 percent of land across the Nevada desert.

Globalists BTFO! G-20 Drops Anti-Protectionist Pledge as Trump Stance Goes Global

Finance chiefs of the world’s largest economies set aside a previous pledge to avoid protectionism and signed up to a fudged statement on trade instead, in response to the Trump administration’s call for a rethink of the global order for commerce.

The Group of 20 nations, meeting in Germany on Saturday, said in a communique that they are “working to strengthen the contribution of trade to our economies.” That’s a much pared-down formulation compared with the group’s statement last year, and also omits a promise to “avoid all forms of protectionism.”

In two days of meetings in Baden-Baden, delegates split under the pressure of the new U.S. rhetoric on the balance of global trade, with most favoring a multilateral, rules-based system as currently embodied in the World Trade Organization. The U.S., represented by Steven Mnuchin in his first appearance at an international forum as Treasury Secretary, argued that trade arrangements need to be made fairer, in line with the administration’s claims the U.S. has had a bad deal from the current setup.

The impasse reflects the atmosphere the previous day at the White House, where U.S. President Donald Trump met German Chancellor Angela Merkel and repeated his complaints that his country has been treated “very, very unfairly” in trade arrangements.

“We met at a time when the global economic recovery is progressing,” the official communique stated. “But the pace of growth is still weaker than desirable and downside risks for the global economy remain. We reaffirm our commitment to international economic and financial cooperation.”

While delegates greeted Mnuchin and said that he had been engaged in the process, it wasn’t possible to reconcile the U.S. stance and that of the other members in any substantive way. Officials may continue to seek greater consensus on trade between now and the G-20 leaders summit in Hamburg in July.

The communique also committed to “further strengthening the global financial architecture” and said members support work to finalize the Basel III framework on bank regulations. It dropped a reference to climate change, in the face of resistance from countries including the U.S., China, India and Saudi Arabia.

G-20 Drops Anti-Protectionist, So-called 'Free-Trade' & Climate-Change Funding Commitment

This would break with a decade-old tradition among the finance ministers and central bankers of the world's 20 top economies (G20), who over the years have repeatedly rejected protectionism and endorsed free trade.

But the new administration in the United States is considering trade measures to curb imports with a border tax and would not agree to repeat the formulations used by previous G20 communiques, clashing with China and Europe, the officials said.

"Unless there is a last minute miracle, there is no agreement on trade," one official, who declined to be named, told Reuters. "This is not a good outcome of the meeting," a G20 delegate quoted Bundesbank President Jens Weidmann as saying.

The new communique said: “We are working to strengthen the contribution of trade to our economies. We will strive to reduce excessive global imbalances, promote greater inclusiveness and fairness and reduce inequality in our pursuit of economic growth.”

The watered-down commitments on free trade reflected the anti-globalisation mood that Donald Trump has brought to Washington and came in the first G20 meetings between Steven Mnuchin, the new US Treasury Secretary, and his foreign counterparts.

US Treasury Secretary Mnuchin spoke to reporters after the meeting:

MNUCHIN: LOOKING FORWARD TO WORKING CLOSELY W/ G-20 COLLEAGUES

MNUCHIN: CONFIDENT US CAN WORK CONSTRUCTIVELY WITH PARTNERS

MNUCHIN: US BELIEVES IN FREE, BALANCED TRADE

MNUCHIN SAYS WILL LOOK AT TRADE SURPLUSES WITH VIEW TO CORRECT

MNUCHIN SAYS MULTILATERAL AGREEMENTS HAVE VERY IMPORTANT PLACE

MNUCHIN SAYS US WANTS TO RE-EXAMINE TRADE DEALS INCLUDING NAFTA

MNUCHIN: US BELIEVES IN APPROPRIATE REGULATION

MNUCHIN SAYS IMPORTANT BANKS CAN PROVIDE LIQUIDITY IN MARKETS

Reuters also points out another potential win for Trump as the communique will also drop a reference, used by the G20 last year, on the readiness to finance climate change as agreed in Paris in 2015 because of opposition from the United States and Saudi Arabia.

Trump has called global warming a "hoax" concocted by China to hurt U.S. industry and vowed to scrap the Paris climate accord aimed at curbing greenhouse gas emissions.

Trump's administration on Thursday proposed a 31 percent cut to the Environmental Protection Agency's budget as the White House seeks to eliminate climate change programs and trim initiatives to protect air and water quality.

Asked about climate change funding, Mick Mulvaney, Trump's budget director, said on Thursday, "We consider that to be a waste of money."

The man who served as former president George W Bush's most senior ethics lawyer has suggested that the FBI is "uncovering evidence of treason" by far right US news websites over their links with Russia.

Richard Painter tweeted a link to an article suggesting that the Bureau was looking into news outlets like Breitbart News, InfoWars and the Kremlin-backed RT News and Sputnik News, to see whether they worked with Russian-backed operatives to disseminate stories favouring Donald Trump during the presidential election. at times when his campaign appeared to be struggling.

Sources told US publisher, McClatchy that online "bots" had created created millions of social media posts linking to articles on the sites, some of which were completely false, while other contained a mixture of fact and fiction.

Investigators are now trying to establish whether the websites were complicit with the people managing the "bots" or the operatives were controlling them without their knowledge - which is entirely possible.

Above the article on his Twitter post, Mr Painter said: "FBI uncovering evidence of treason. There is no other word for it."

Spokespeople for Sputnik, RT and InfoWars have all vehemently denied links to Russia.

Aid group fears hundreds of migrants drowned off Libya

MADRID — A Spanish aid organization said Friday that it feared hundreds of migrants may have died off Libya's coast, while Turkish media reported that 11 migrants died after a boat sank in the Aegean.

Video footage on the DHA outlet in Turkey showed a half-dozen covered bodies that were laid out near ambulances. The migrants' boat capsized near the Turkish resort town of Kusadasi and nine people were rescued, the Turkish Coast Guard Command said. It said two people, believed to be smugglers, were detained on land.

Concerns about the migrants near Libya rose after Spain*s Proactiva Open Arms group found five bodies near two capsized boats on Thursday. Proactiva spokeswoman Laura Lanuza said German aid organization Jugend Rettet found a sixth body in the area Friday. In a tweet, the group said "there will be many more."

Meanwhile, the search for a third vessel reported missing in the area has so far proved futile.

Lanuza said their vessel was expected to arrive Saturday at the Italian port of Catania to hand over the bodies of the five young men while other nongovernmental organizations continued the search for more possible victims off Libya.

The U.N. refugee agency said it was "deeply alarmed" by the reports. Both it and Proactiva said they feared the death toll may be much higher as migrant dinghies are normally crammed with around 120 people each.

The agency cited NGO sources as saying the five floating corpses of the young men had been recovered about 14 miles (22 kilometers) off the Libyan coast near two empty and partially submerged rubber dinghies.

Lanuza said the boats were found Thursday morning, north of the Libyan town of Sabratha. The five men of African origin were estimated to be between 16 and 25 years old and appeared to have drowned, she said.

The Red Crescent in Libya, and the Libyan coast guard, said Friday that they had no reports about dead migrants or capsized boats in the 12 miles (20 kilometers) of Libyan territorial waters.

The UNHCR said the latest incidents come after an intense week of arrivals through the Central Mediterranean route with almost 6,000 migrants and refugees rescued in just five days this week.

It said so far this year some 21,903 people have crossed the Mediterranean Sea to European shores.

The agency said that since the beginning of 2017, and excluding the latest incidents, around 590 people have died or have gone missing in crossings.

Last year was the deadliest ever recorded with 5,096 migrants perishing or going missing, according to the UNHCR.

Steve Bannon Does Not Really Support RINOcare Either, They Need To Scrap Ryan's Bill, Start Over!

Gabriel Sherman writes that White House chief strategist and former Breitbart News executive chairman Steve Bannon has privately expressed concern that the American Health Care Act (AHCA) betrays the populist voters who put Donald Trump in the White House.

From New York Magazine: http://archive.is/dSmXx

The failure to repeal and replace Obamacare would be a stinging defeat for Trump. But it would be an even bigger defeat for Paul Ryan, who has all but staked his Speakership on passing this bill. And in the hall of mirrors that is Washington, the big winner to emerge out of the health-care debacle could be Steve Bannon. That’s because Bannon has been waging war against Ryan for years. For Bannon, Ryan is the embodiment of the “globalist-corporatist” Republican elite. A failed bill would be Bannon’s best chance yet to topple Ryan and advance his nationalist-populist economic agenda.

Publicly, Bannon has been working to help the bill pass. But privately he’s talked it down in recent days. According to a source close to the White House, Bannon said that he’s unhappy with the Ryan bill because it “doesn’t drive down costs” and was “written by the insurance industry.” While the bill strips away many of Obamacare’s provisions, it does not go as far as Bannon would wish to “deconstruct the administrative state” in the realm of health care. Furthermore, Bannon has been distancing himself from the bill to insulate himself from political fallout of it failing. He’s told people that Trump economic adviser Gary Cohn — a West Wing rival — has run point on it. (Bannon did not respond to a request for comment.)

Israel Ignores Putin's Warning Over Syria Bombings

According to Syria’s ambassador to the United Nations, Russia has reportedly sent a clear warning to the Israeli government that they will no longer have freedom to act in Syrian skies.

“Putin sent a clear message,” said Bashar Jaafari on Syrian television Sunday night, as reported by Haaretz. “The fact is that the Israeli ambassador [to Russia] was summoned for a conversation only a day after he submitted his credentials [to the Russian Foreign Ministry last Thursday], and was told categorically that this game was over.”

Israel has struck Syria multiple times, including before the so-called Syrian civil war began in 2011, as well as periodically over the last six-year period. Just last week, Israel conducted a number of airstrikes within Syrian territory. On Sunday, an Israeli airstrike also allegedly killed a pro-regime commander in the Golan Heights.

According to Jaafari, Syria’s use of anti-aircraft fire against Israel last Thursday night has changed the rules of the game, as Syria will no longer tolerate Israeli fire on its territory. However, Syria’s missile defense system was unsuccessful in bringing down Israeli jets.

Following the use of Syria’s defense system, Israel warned it would respond in turn by taking out Syria’s defenses if Syria deploys them again in future.

In essence, Israel believes it has the right to defend itself from homemade rockets launched from a blockaded, densely populated area that is protected by no air force and no air defenses. At the same time, Israel also believes its neighbor, Syria, does not have an equal right to defend itself from Israel’s vast military capabilities.

In response to Russia’s alleged warning, Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has reportedly told Vladimir Putin that Israeli air strikes will continue in Syria to contain threats.

The agreement between Russia and Israel that allows the air force to execute “defensive missions” against targets in Syria still stands, Netanyahu said, as reported by the Jerusalem Post. In such instances, he said, “We attack if we have information and the operational feasibility. This will continue.”

It speaks volumes that Israel conducts airstrikes within Syrian territory without even targeting the terror groups Western media has portrayed as sheer evil, like ISIS. In fact, on multiple occasions, ISIS fighters have left behind Israeli weaponry following a string of defeats.

This shouldn’t be surprising given that in 2013, Israel’s ambassador to the U.S., Michael Oren, told the Jerusalem Post:

“The initial message about the Syrian issue was that we always wanted [President] Bashar Assad to go, we always preferred the bad guys who weren’t backed by Iran to the bad guys who were backed by Iran.”

According to the Post, Oren said this was the case even if the other “bad guys” were affiliated with al-Qaeda.

Israel appears to have other plans in mind, and defeating ISIS doesn’t appear to be one of them.

Illegal Immigrant Accused of Murdering Teacher

An illegal immigrant has been charged with the murder of a Massachusetts public school system employee.

Jose Melendez, 54, allegedly killed Sandra Hehir by strangulation in her Worcester apartment, where she was found, the Boston Globe reported.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials confirmed to Breitbart Texas that they have placed an immigration detainer on Melendez.

Melendez, according to police, also used the aliases “Alvarado” and “Segura” and had a long criminal history, with most recently being arrested in a neighboring region of the state.

In 2014, Melendez defaulted on probation after being convicted for breaking and entering, according to the Globe, and is currently charged in two drug-related crimes after he allegedly used a false name with Worcester police.

Hehir was called “Buffy” by her friends and family and was a beloved educator in the local school district, according to the Telegram.

“All her life she was a very kind person,” School District Superintendent Maureen F. Binienda said of Hehir to the Telegram. “I really hope that people join together and try to find who did this.”

If released to ICE under any circumstance, Melendez will face deportation.

House Intelligence Committee: Leaks Reveal Improper Political Surveillance of Trump, Others

RELATED! TRUMP TARGETED: http:// archive.is/0QPMw

RELATED! ARPAIO TARGETED: http:// archive.is/VMRnl

RELATED! SAVAGE TARGETED: http:// archive.is/JM4Yr

A House intelligence committee investigation took a dramatic shift this week after newly disclosed intelligence reports suggested the Obama administration improperly gathered and disseminated secret electronic communications from President Trump and his transition team prior to inauguration.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R., Calif.), the chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, indicated that the administration used its foreign intelligence gathering authority to spy on the discussions of Trump and his transition team by improperly unmasking the identity of Americans who were swept up in foreign electronic spying.

"What I've read seems to be some level of surveillance activity, perhaps legal, but I don't know that it's right and I don't know if the American people would be comfortable with what I've read," said Nunes, who uncovered the reports.

Nunes announced the committee would seek to determine who knew about the classified reports, why they were not disclosed to Congress, and who requested and authorized the disclosure of the Americans' identities in the reports.

The panel also will try to find out whether the intelligence community was ordered to spy on Trump associates and if laws or regulations were violated.

Nunes said he was alarmed by what he saw in several dozen intelligence reports that include transcripts of communications, including communications directly from Trump. The reports were based on a foreign electronic spying operation between November and January. They were revealed by an intelligence community insider who alerted Nunes.

Nunes said on CNN that after reading the reports he was confident the Obama White House and numerous agencies "had a pretty good idea of what President-elect Trump was up to and what his transition team was up to and who they were meeting with."

The full extent of the improper spying—including the improper unmasking of Americans whose identities were to be hidden in reports of foreign communications intercepts—is expected to be disclosed Friday, Nunes said.

The National Security Agency has agreed to provide additional reports, although Nunes said the FBI has not yet agreed to his request to turn over additional sensitive intelligence reports on the Trump transition team.

"This is information that was brought to me that I thought the president needed to know about incidental collection, where the president himself and others in the Trump transition team were clearly put into intelligence reports that ended up at this White House and across a whole bunch of other agencies," Nunes said after meeting Trump on Wednesday.

Intelligence committee member Rep. Mike Turner (R., Ohio) said he shared Nunes' concerns about improper spying.

"An outgoing administration reviewing the communications of an incoming administration is highly inappropriate and raises serious concerns," Turner said in a statement.

"The incidental collection, subsequent dissemination, and unmasking of individuals related to the presidential transition team needs to be carefully investigated as there are real concerns about whether minimization procedures were appropriately followed," he added.

Intelligence agencies are authorized to spy on foreign targets under two different authorities. One authority is the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, a special federal court, and the second is a presidential directive known as Executive Order 12333.

Electronic surveillance under the executive order does not require court approval.

Three Million Migrants Waiting to Cross into Greece

Thousand of migrants are already bottlenecked

While visiting Athens on Thursday, European Commissioner for Migration Dimitris Avramopoulos said that there are approximately 3 million refugees waiting to cross into Greece from Turkey in an effort to reach Western and Northern Europe.

The news comes at a time when repeated threats from Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan along with many of his advisors and aides imply that the Brussels-Ankara deal might come to an end.

Mr. Avramopoulos stated that the deal signed last year between Turkey and the EU had reduced the influx of migrants toward Europe and reduced the number of deaths at sea while stressing the need to safeguard the deal in order to curb human smuggling in the Aegean.

Thousand of migrants are already bottlenecked in reception centers on the islands of the eastern Aegean, which is the first point of arrival for most migrants arriving in Greece from Turkey.

A press office official in Tahiti who was not authorized to be named told The Associated Press on Friday that the former U.S. president landed Thursday in Tahiti then took a plane on to a private island.

His destination, she said, was “The Brando” — a luxury resort popular with celebrities on Tetiaroa Island. It’s named after the late Hollywood legend Marlon Brando, who bought the spot, the hotel website says, after becoming enchanted with its rare beauty during the filming of 1962’s “Mutiny on the Bounty.”

The official did not elaborate further on the visit. French Polynesia is a French territory in the South Pacific.

Israeli-American teen arrested in Israel for over 100 JCC bomb threats

Jewish Community Centers Hate Hoaxes

JERUSALEM (JTA) — A Israeli teenager who also has American citizenship was arrested on suspicion of carrying out more than 100 bomb threats on Jewish institutions in the United States.

Israel’s anti-fraud squad arrested the 19-year-old suspect at his home in southern Israel and searched the premises on Thursday. He also is accused of a series of threats made in Europe, Australia and New Zealand in the past six months, according to reports in Israel. He also is reported to have called in threats to the Israel Police two months ago regarding Israeli educational institutions.

He is reported to have tried to take a policewoman’s gun during his arrest and harm himself with it.

Israeli police said the teen has been the subject of months-long undercover investigation by the anti-fraud unit, as well as the FBI in the United States and law enforcement in other countries. He has lived in Israel for many years, Haaretz reported.

He appeared in court in Rishon Lezion on Thursday for a remand hearing, where he was ordered held over until March 30. His motives are unknown, according to reports.

Ynet, which reports that the teen is from Ashkelon, reported that during the hearing the teens attorney requested that he be placed under supervision after raising concern for his mental status, claiming that he might try to harm himself. The attorney told the court that the teen has had a brain tumor since the age of 14, and has been homeschooled since then. The attorney said that the tumor affects his behavior, Ynet reported.

The teen reportedly used advanced technology and voice-altering equipment to call in the threats to more than 100 JCCs, Jewish day schools and other Jewish institutions in the United States, according to The Times of Israel. He also is accused of making a threatening call to Delta Airlines, leading to the emergency landing of at least one plane.

During the cyber unit’s raid on the teen’s home, police found a computer lab with sophisticated equipment, encryption and transmission systems, and a powerful antenna, according to reports.

The army refused to draft the teen after finding him unfit for service, Haaretz reported.

His father also has been detained on suspicion that he knew about his son’s activities, and ordered held in jail until March 30.

Israel’s minister of public security, Gilad Erdan, commented on the teen’s arrest.

“I congratulate the Israeli police on leading a complex international investigation, together with law enforcement agencies from around the world, which led to the arrest of the suspect,” Erdan said. “We hope that this investigation will help shed light on some of the recent threats against Jewish institutions, which have caused great concern both among Jewish communities and the Israeli government.”

Attorney General Jeff Sessions in a statement praised the work of the Israeli police and the FBI.

“The Department of Justice is committed to protecting the civil rights of all Americans, and we will not tolerate the targeting of any community in this country on the basis of their religious beliefs,” Sessions said in the statement. “I commend the FBI and Israeli National Police for their outstanding work on this case.”

Earlier this month, a St. Louis resident and former journalist, Juan Thompson, was arrested and charged for making at least eight bomb threats against Jewish community centers and the Anti-Defamation League.

Thompson, 31, made some of the threats in the name of a former romantic partner he had been cyberstalking and some in his own in an attempt to portray himself as being framed. He was charged with cyberstalking, which carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison.

Trump:slumlord and evictor and harasser of poor old people

The case involves the rather nice 15-story building at 100 Central Park South, overlooking the park. He bought it in 1981 with the intention of tearing it and the adjacent building down (the Barbizon Plaza, which he also owns) and replacing them with another of his mega-luxury towers. The curious thing about his plans is that he knew that the building was pretty much fully occupied and that the apartments were protected by either rent control or rent stabilization.

The city and state papers allege that Mr. Trump and his agents proceeded to try to force out the 60 or more tenants by the following tactics: threats of imminent demolition, spurious litigation, drastic decreases in essential services, persistent delay in repairing defective conditions with life-threatening potential, instructing employees to obtain information about the private lives (and) sex habits of the tenants, and engaging in a psychological tug- of-war to wear the tenants down which has had a deleterious effect upon the health and well-being of said tenants, many of whom are elderly and are particularly vulnerable to defendants' persistent course of conduct.

NOW CONFIRMED! Trump Was Tapped

RELATED: >>525602

Infowars.com have obtained credible information from law enforcement sources regarding individual records of U.S. citizens under National Security Agency (NSA) electronic surveillance in the years 2004 through 2010 – a database that suggests both Donald J. Trump and Alex Jones were under illegal, unauthorized government monitoring during those years.

https://www.infowars.com/breaking-documents-show-obama-surveiled-entire-trump-family-for-8-years/

Michael Zullo, formerly the commander and chief investigator of the Cold Case Posse (CCP), a special investigative group created in 2006 in the office of Joseph M. Arpaio, formerly the sheriff in Maricopa County, an Arizona State Certified Law Enforcement Agency, headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona, provided sections of the database to Infowars.com.

The electronic surveillance database, provided to Zullo by a whistleblower in 2013, was apparently created by the NSA as part of the NSA’s illegal and unconstitutional Project Dragnet electronic surveillance of U.S. citizens, first revealed by news reports published in 2005, as further documented by the revelations of whistleblower Edward Snowden in 2013.

WikiLeaks: CIA Bugs ‘Factory Fresh’ iPhones

RELATED REVELATIONS (Up To Date): >>>/falloutequestria/25

LEARN ABOUT OPSEC: >>>/opsec/4

A new WikiLeaks Vault 7 leak titled “Dark Matter” claims, with unreleased documents, that the Central Intelligence Agency has been bugging “factory fresh” iPhones since at least 2008. WikiLeaks further claims that the CIA has the capability to permanently bug iPhones, even if their operating systems are deleted or replaced.

The documents are expected to be released after a 10 a.m. EDT “press briefing” that WikiLeaks promoted on its Twitter.

https://wikileaks.org/vault7/darkmatter/?cia

Watch a livestream of the Julian Assange led event here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Ta9SuIvsU0

A summary of the documents has been released on the WikiLeaks website. It reads: http://archive.is/RmNFG

Today, March 23rd 2017, WikiLeaks releases Vault 7 “Dark Matter”, which contains documentation for several CIA projects that infect Apple Mac Computer firmware (meaning the infection persists even if the operating system is re-installed) developed by the CIA’s Embedded Development Branch (EDB). These documents explain the techniques used by CIA to gain ‘persistence’ on Apple Mac devices, including Macs and iPhones and demonstrate their use of EFI/UEFI and firmware malware.

Among others, these documents reveal the “Sonic Screwdriver” project which, as explained by the CIA, is a “mechanism for executing code on peripheral devices while a Mac laptop or desktop is booting” allowing an attacker to boot its attack software for example from a USB stick “even when a firmware password is enabled”. The CIA’s “Sonic Screwdriver” infector is stored on the modified firmware of an Apple Thunderbolt-to-Ethernet adapter.

“DarkSeaSkies” is “an implant that persists in the EFI firmware of an Apple MacBook Air computer” and consists of “DarkMatter”, “SeaPea” and “NightSkies”, respectively EFI, kernel-space and user-space implants.

Documents on the “Triton” MacOSX malware, its infector “Dark Mallet” and its EFI-persistent version “DerStake” are also included in this release. While the DerStake1.4 manual released today dates to 2013, other Vault 7 documents show that as of 2016 the CIA continues to rely on and update these systems and is working on the production of DerStarke2.0.

Also included in this release is the manual for the CIA’s “NightSkies 1.2” a “beacon/loader/implant tool” for the Apple iPhone. Noteworthy is that NightSkies had reached 1.2 by 2008, and is expressly designed to be physically installed onto factory fresh iPhones. i.e the CIA has been infecting the iPhone supply chain of its targets since at least 2008.

While CIA assets are sometimes used to physically infect systems in the custody of a target it is likely that many CIA physical access attacks have infected the targeted organization’s supply chain including by interdicting mail orders and other shipments (opening, infecting, and resending) leaving the United States or otherwise.

Modern Sexuality - Depravity by Choice

Now that sex is everywhere, it has low value, sort of like running water. We are learning that sexual liberation means sexual conformity, and because the herd is all doing the same thing, value flees to those who are outsiders and doing something else, like tying sex to family and existential purpose, which makes it more valuable where “liberation” makes it less valuable.

Like all things Leftist, sexual democratization renders worthless something one prized by destroying the best examples of it so that the other examples can feel “equal.” In other words, no one gets what is beautiful; beauty is destroyed so that the average can rule. This is what the fearful and tyrannical human ego does to any segment of experience.

For example, Americans are having less sex because sex is sort of like running water or wi-fi now, i.e. everywhere and without much significance, which cries out for it to be bonded to something larger and more transcendental than what modernity has reduced to a bodily function:

https://archive.is/yVq6r

In other words, sex has become a bargaining chip. People trade it for acceptance in a relationship, and once they are in one, there is no need for a further transaction. The liberation of sex has made everyone into slow-motion prostitutes. And as a result, sex has become a chore like any other job, something done in exchange for money or power and therefore, something undesirable.

This is the nature of all things under egalitarianism. Because society is re-oriented toward a minimum, everything which is not mediocre becomes a commodity, and as the herd chases after it, its value falls as it becomes democratized or spread around. In the end, nothing is worth anything, but each prole can claim they are a king… albeit in an entropic wasteland where nothing has value.

Stephanie says:

The sad reckoning may be on the way. Zika babies seems to be an apt warning and outcome. Sins of the father. Degeneration. Visited upon the innocent.

When kids are seeking to be a different gender, and are encouraged to do so by the ‘adults’ and the ‘experts’, and then anyone who proclaims that an anus is not a vagina and is persecuted for saying so, well, some very bad things are in store for humanity. This should be obvious.

Its going to get worse, much worse, and humanity may not survive. So much for Mars.

"Stinging Defeat For Trump": House Delays Trumpcare Vote On Doubts It Can Pass

"Stinging Defeat For Trump": House Delays Trumpcare Vote On Doubts It Can Pass

>Summary of the chaotic day's key events:

- GOP House leaders delayed their planned vote Thursday to repeal and replace "Obamacare," which as AP put it was a "stinging defeat" for Paul Ryan and President Trump in their first major legislative test.

- The decision came after Trump failed to reach agreement with a bloc of rebellious conservatives. Moderate-leaning Republican lawmakers were also bailing on the legislation, leaving it short of votes.

- At least 30 Republicans said they opposed the bill, enough to defeat the measure. But the number was in constant flux amid the eleventh-hour lobbying.

- The bill could still come to a vote in coming days, but canceling Thursday's vote is a significant defeat. It came on the seven-year anniversary of President Barack Obama signing the Affordable Care Act, years that Republicans have devoted to promising repeal.

- "No deal," House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows, R-N.C., said after he and his group of more than two dozen rebellious conservatives met with Trump to try to get more concessions to reduce requirements on insurance companies.

- The Republican legislation would halt Obama's tax penalties against people who don't buy coverage and cut the federal-state Medicaid program for low earners, which the Obama statute had expanded. It would provide tax credits to help people pay medical bills, though generally skimpier than Obama's statute provides. It also would allow insurers to charge older Americans more and repeal tax boosts the law imposed on high-income people and health industry companies.The measure would also block federal payments to Planned Parenthood for a year, another stumbling block for GOP moderates.

- A Quinnipiac University poll found that people disapprove of the GOP legislation by 56 percent to 17 percent, with 26 percent undecided. Trump's handling of health care was viewed unfavorably by 6 in 10.

- GOP leaders had targeted Thursday for the climactic vote, in part because it marks the seventh anniversary of Obama's signing the measure into law. With the House in recess awaiting the outcome of the White House meeting, C-SPAN aired video of that signing ceremony.

- House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., couldn't resist a dig. "You may be a great negotiator," she said of Trump. "Rookie's error for bringing this up on a day when clearly you're not ready."

- A key moderate who had been in the meeting, Rep. Charlie Dent of Pennsylvania, issued a statement saying he would be voting "no" on the health bill. "I believe this bill, in its current form, will lead to the loss of coverage and make insurance unaffordable for too many Americans," said Dent, a leader of the Tuesday Group of moderate-leaning Republicans.

BOYCOTTS WORK! Starbucks CEO To Step Down After Pledge To Hire 10,000 Refugees BACKFIRES

RELATED: >>>/goodnews/179

The arrogance of a CEO of a major company like Starbucks, that would put his radical political opinions above the health of the company and the stockholders is astounding. The idea that Howard Schultz believed he could say Starbucks would make hiring 10,000 refugees a priority, while so many Americans are out of work, and it wouldn’t harm the Starbucks brand is beyond foolish…

The arrogance of a liberal Starbucks CEO has backfired on him. He has to step down from his high position.

Howard Schultz will be replaced as Starbucks CEO next month.

Schultz was in the news recently when he arrogantly said that Starbucks would hire 10,000 refugees in reaction to President Trump's first executive order on the temporary travel ban for nationals of seven Muslim-majority countries.

Many Americans were offended by Schultz's offer to refugees because many of them are not employed. They felt that Americans should have been a priority for jobs for a huge company like Starbucks. Trump has said that U.S.companies must give priority to Americans.

Trump supporters also got angry with the CEO's big offer to refugees because they know he is making a political statement against Trump.

Trump supporters called for a boycott of Starbucks since January 29. Shortly after, Starbucks has felt the effect. Sales went down.

Starbucks consumer perception levels as measured by YouGov BrandIndex's Buzz score, falling by two-thirds between January 29 and February 13.

The problem with Schultz is that he used his Starbucks position for his political agenda. Schultz is a known Democrat and public supporter of Hillary Clinton. He was even considered as a running mate for the Democratic nominee.

Schultz will remain with Starbucks as executive chairman. He will focus on Starbucks' high end coffee shops. It is a lower position in essence. The new job will also not allow him to make such big statements as what he arrogantly did with the supposed 10,000 jobs offer to refugees.

He will be replaced by current Chief Operating Officer Kevin Johnson who takes over next month.

It is a loss for Schultz and a victory in a sense for Trump supporters.

White supremacist's church burns down in North Dakota

A fire that destroyed a church owned by a well-known white supremacist in a small US town is under investigation.

The place of worship in Nome, North Dakota, was recently purchased by Craig Cobb, who tried to set up a whites-only enclave in another part of the state.

The blaze was reported on Wednesday afternoon and the structure was razed by the time fire crews arrived after nearly an hour.

Cobb said the fire at the former Zion Lutheran church was "100% arson".

He says he might open a new church called "the President Donald J Trump Church of Rome", not Nome, the town located about 70 miles (112km) southwest of Fargo.

Cobb is one of the best known white supremacists in North America, according to the (((Southern Poverty Law Center))), which tracks hate groups.

ISIS Claims Responsibility for London Terror Attack, British Govt In Total Denial

Four people were killed in the Islamic terrorist attack.

29 people were injured in the attacks. 7 are in critical condition.

http://archive.is/08srx

ISIS have claimed responsibility for the terror attack in London in which four people died and 29 were injured.

The Amaq News Agency, seen as the terror group's official press service, report the attacker was "a soldier of Islamic State".

The terror group does not provide the name of the attacker who killed three people before he was shot dead by police.

http://archive.is/iTs6q

Officials have now said the lone wolf maniac was inspired by “Islamic terrorism” and had been investigated for violent extremism by MI5 before he mowed down crowds on Westminster Bridge and stabbed cop Keith Palmer to death outside Parliament.

Theresa May told Parliament this morning: “What I can confirm is the man was British-born and that some years ago he was once investigated by MI5 in relation to concerns about violent extremism.”
