the New York Times Says Heat Waves Are Getting Worse. The National Climate Assessment Disagrees.

Americans east of the Rockies are sweltering as daytime temperatures soar toward 100 degrees or more. It is now customary for journalists covering big weather events to speculate on how man-made climate change may be affecting them, and the current heat wave is no exception. Take this headline in The New York Times: “Heat Waves in the Age of Climate Change: Longer, More Frequent and More Dangerous.”

As evidence, the Times cites the U.S. Global Change Research Program, reporting that “since the 1960s the average number of heat waves—defined as two or more consecutive days where daily lows exceeded historical July and August temperatures—in 50 major American cities has tripled.” That is indeed what the numbers show. But it seems odd to highlight the trend in daily low temperatures rather than daily high temperatures.

As it happens, chapter six of 2017’s Fourth National Climate Assessment reports that heat waves measured as high daily temperatures are becoming less common in the contiguous U.S., not more frequent.

California’s Homeless Crisis Has Reached “Epic Proportions”

The homeless crisis in the Democrat stronghold of California has reached epic proportions. Even after throwing billions of dollars at the problem, the state is unable to solve the epidemic they created.

And California’s plan to throw billions of dollars more at the issue won’t do much either. The problem isn’t a lack of money. The problem is the socialist policies in place that make homelessness inevitable. There are now nearly 60,000 homeless people living in Los Angeles County, a 12% increase from the previous year, according to the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority.

According to National Interest, Los Angeles is not the only county suffering under the weight of freedom-trampling socialist regulations that make it difficult for the average person to even get by, let alone afford a roof over their head.

Critics Raise Alarm Over Popular Drug Marketed to Children

Study cites developmental problems, liver damage, more

In the U.S., acetaminophen (also called paracetamol or APAP) is present as an active ingredient in over 600 prescription and over-the-counter medications marketed to relieve pain or reduce fever, including Tylenol. Every week, nearly one in four Americans takes an acetaminophen-containing medication, and pediatricians routinely recommend acetaminophen as the treatment of choice for fever in children.

Despite its ubiquity, acetaminophen also has many critics. These argue that the drug’s path to prominence has been littered with errors, false assumptions and undue complacency about risks. Documented problems include life-threatening liver damage in individuals who consume acetaminophen in “excess amounts”-something that is all too easy to do, given the drug’s different aliases and the sheer number of products in which it is present-as well as cardiovascular disease and renal injury risks associated with long-term use. In the critics’ view, these and other problems make acetaminophen “one of the most dangerous compounds in medical use.”

In the U.S., roughly 500 deaths are attributable to acetaminophen each year, as well as 100,000 poison control calls, 50,000 emergency room visits and 10,000 hospitalizations. Most acetaminophen-related emergency department visits are in young children (under age 5), adolescents or young adults. The problem of accidental (or intentional) overdoses is worrisome enough, but there are other reasons to be concerned about acetaminophen use in young people-notably, the drug’s association with asthma and developmental disorders such as autism. The research linking acetaminophen to these epidemic-level chronic conditions suggests that the drug’s automatic inclusion in the childhood medicine cabinet ought to be reconsidered.

Dr. Drew Warns of Imminent Bubonic Plague Outbreak Starting in Los Angeles

Nightmare scenario could be result of Democrat policies

Talk radio host Dr. Drew warned Americans that Los Angeles, California’s growing homeless and rodent populations could lead to a resurgence of the bubonic Plague.

Speaking with Dilbert creator Scott Adams, Dr. Drew explained how he predicted the current typhus outbreak infecting Los Angeles residents and said bubonic plague is similarly endemic to the area.

Both typhus and bubonic plague can be spread to humans from rodents and the combination of the city’s massive rat infestation and increasing numbers of homeless people sets the stage for a major outbreak.

In fact, the last outbreak of bubonic plague in America took place in Los Angeles from 1924-25 and was stopped by doctors who, according to Drew, gave a “heroic effort.”

With today’s technology allowing the millions of people in the Los Angeles area to travel far and fast, it would be nearly impossible to prevent a new outbreak from spreading.

Enjoying That 25Mbps Internet Speed, America? Oh, It’s Just 6Mbps? And You’re Unhappy? Can’t Imagine Why

Internet testers went down to Georgia and found a fraud

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution hired a data specialist to do a statewide study of what internet users were really getting when it comes to broadband. After compiling readings from over 380,000 individual users across the state, the results were even worse than expected: internet users are getting just 6.3Mbps on average despite official US government statistics saying the figure was four times higher at 25Mbps.

That is critical not just because it means people have to wait longer to download information from the internet but because the entire structure of oversight that is designed to make sure there is adequate broadband across the US is built around the 25Mbps figure.

It’s worse than that however: people pay for a 25Mbps service and often make that decision based on their needs, deciding not to pay more for a faster service. But then they receive speeds that are inadequate for their needs…

Despite the readily availability of accurate and reliable software that ordinary Americans can use to measure and report their true internet speeds, the FCC continues to rely on self-reporting from cable companies, mobile operators and ISPs — despite repeat evidence that they are misrepresenting and, in some cases, simply making up figures.

It is notable that a recent survey showed that of the top ten fastest ISPs in the US, six of them are small, independent providers rather than the huge corporations that dominate the market.

MSNBC’s Chris Hayes: Trump Supporters Must be ‘Confronted and Destroyed’

Media trying to stoke civil war in America to derail Trump reelection

Several days later, the liberal media still hasn’t moved past President Trump’s controversial tweets, but are instead rallying around them in opposition. MSNBC’s All In host, Chris Hayes, took a leading position Thursday night by denouncing all Republicans and Trump supporters, and calling for a revolution of sorts against the Trump administration.

As with all social justice warriors, Hayes has been circulating his “cause” all week, building the case for Trump’s apparent racism. He began: “Each part of the coalition has been dealt into the Trump presidency. It is a classic model of corrupt governance. The capo on the top and the many, many bosses below who are given control of their domain to do as they wish.”

This statement, clearly meant to place Trump along the ranks of Hitler and Mussolini, has been a staple MSNBC scare tactic for some time now.

Next, Hayes turned his ire on the American people: “But the base, what does the base get? The folks in that arena. Well, it’s obvious, isn’t it? They get to chant. They get to revel in their own Americanness and primacy at the expense of others.”

Not only is the base at fault for their patriotism and desire to protect their country but “Trump and now the entire Republican Party and most of the conservative movement realize that is enough for them.”

Orwell, Inc.: How Your Employer Spies on You From When You Wake Up Until You Go to Bed

An increasing number of large companies are using data from employees’ electronic devices to track such personal details like when you they wake up, where they go for coffee in the morning, their whereabouts throughout the entire day, and what time they go to bed according to a new Wall Street Journal article. What’s the company explanation for this type of spying?

“An increasing number of companies are keeping track of such information to flag potentially suspicious activity and measure work-life balance,” the article claims.

The article walks through the day in the life of a fictional worker, Chet. It starts by noting that his employer logs the time and his location when he first wakes up to check his e-mail in the morning.

From there, the company even sees as Chet logs onto the guest Wi-Fi connections at places like the coffee shop in the morning. Many companies require additional authentication when they try to access company information from unsecure Wi-Fi networks.

Then, a Bluetooth device and his ID badge mark what time he arrives at the office while tracking his movement around the building. These technologies are supposedly used to see what teams collaborate frequently and to make sure that employees aren’t accessing unauthorized areas.

Then, as Chet gets to his desk, his web browsing is tracked along with his email. New software breaks down how workers interact with email and how quickly colleagues reply in an attempt to see which employees are most influential. Some software on company computers even snaps screenshots every 30 seconds to evaluate productivity and hours worked.

School District Warns Parents Their Kids Could be Taken Away Over Unpaid Lunches

A school district in Pennsylvania has warned parents that their children could end up in foster care if overdue school lunch bills aren’t paid.

About 1,000 parents in the Wyoming Valley West School District received letters outlining the new policy, leading to complaints from parents and the community.

The letter indicates that the unpaid bills may lead to dependency hearings and ultimately the removal of the children for interfering with their “child’s right to food.”

It reads:

“You can be sent to dependency court for neglecting your child’s right to food. The result may be your child being taken from your home and placed in foster care.”

The school district is short $20,000 in unpaid fees and has been unsuccessful in getting them paid through the usual means, resulting in this new drastic attempt.

After parents lodged complaints about the letter and the policy it outlines, district officials announced plans to send out another less threatening letter next week.

Smollett: On Second Thought, It Was All Those Two Brothers’ Fault

Perhaps the Chicago Way isn’t quite as impenetrable any more as it’s seemed over the past century or so. Once State Attorney Kim Foxx and her friends managed to make Jussie Smollett’s problems go away for him and seal all the records, that looked like the end of the story. But since that time, a new judge has ordered the appointment of a special prosecutor to look into the case and, if justified, bring new charges against Smollett. Given the amount of national attention focused on the case, it began to appear as if there was a certain level of embarrassment that even Chicago couldn’t tolerate.

But don’t count Smollett out just yet. His attorneys were back in court this week, “respectfully requesting” that the order to appoint a special prosecutor be vacated and, failing that, no new charges against their client be allowed. (Daily Wire)

Trump Unleashed: Paul Ryan ‘Weak, Ineffective & Stupid, ‘ ‘Almost Killed’ Republican Party

President Donald Trump on Saturday lambasted former House Speaker Paul Ryan once again, calling him “Weak, ineffective & stupid” and said the now-retired lawmaker “almost killed” the Republican Party when he was in Congress.

“House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is a far superior leader than was Lame Duck Speaker Paul Ryan,” President Trump began on Twitter. “Tougher, smarter and a far better fundraiser, Kevin is already closing in on 44 Million Dollars. Paul’s final year numbers were, according to Breitbart, “abysmal.”“

“People like.Paul Ryan almost killed the Republican Party. Weak, ineffective & stupid are not exactly the qualities that Republicans, or the CITIZENS of our Country, were looking for,” he added. “Right now our spirit is at an all time high, far better than the Radical Left Dems. You’ll see next year!”

University Study Finds US Less Racist Under President Trump Than Race-Baiting Obama

A recent study by University of Pennsylvania reseachers Danial J. Hopkins and Samantha Washington found that America is much less racist under President Trump than under race-baiting, whitey-bashing Democrat Barack Obama.

The survey concluded that via most measures, white Americans’ expressed anti-Black and anti-Hispanic prejudice declined after the 2016 campaign and election, and we can rule out even small increases in the expression of prejudice.

Maybe Americans just didn’t like to be lectured by a pompous radical Socialist like Obama.

And this is despite the liberal mainstream media’s best attempts to accuse ALL Trump supporters of racism.

Brussels Changes Its Mind Again on .EU Domains: Euro Citizens in Post-Brexit Britain Can Keep Them After All

In what we believe is the fourth such dictat — although we may have missed a few — Brussels bureaucrats have now decided [PDF] that if you are an EU citizen living in the UK you can have a .eu domain.

That announcement follows a definitive decision in January that if you were an EU citizen living in the UK you could NOT have a .eu domain. There was to be a strict two-month cancellation period for any .eu domain registered to a UK address, even if the owner was a European citizen, it ruled.

Farage: Brussels ‘Bully Boys’ Will Build a Bigger EU ‘With No Dissent Allowed’

Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage has warned that “bully boys” like the next European Commission president will construct a more federalised European Union.

“The EU bully boys (and girls) are not pretending anymore,” Mr Farage wrote in The Telegraph on Friday. “A deeper and more centralised political union is to be built, with no dissent allowed.”

Remarking on Ursula von der Leyen’s recent confirmation as President of the European Commission by the European Parliament — where the former German defence minister was the only candidate on the ballot — Mr Farage called her a “fanatical federalist” whose appointment was “the result of a Franco-German stitch-up”.

“Von der Leyen has an incredibly ambitious programme for her five-year term. In 20 years of sitting in the Strasbourg chamber, I have never heard a speech like the one she gave this week, in which she set out an overt bid for the EU to take control of all kinds of arrangements inside individual nation-states, from an EU minimum wage to the harmonisation of corporation tax,” Mr Farage wrote.

“In terms of foreign policy, member states’ vetos must be removed so that a new European army can be deployed with a minimum of fuss. All aspects of the Union will be backed up by the rule of law, presided over by EU prosecutors,” he added, calling what the “EU fanatic” was planning an “updated form of Communism”.

[Comment: Sosia comments that “Communism was rebranded and repackaged by the Frankfurt School and reemerged as Cultural Marxism, though it hid behind names such as “Rights”, “Tolerance”, “Acceptance” and the opposition as “bigots”, “fascists”, “Alt— right” and a host of “-phobes”.”]

German Police Raid Flats of ISIS Supporting Extremists Suspected of Having Links to Terror Networks

German police — in a series of raids — searched the apartments of several individuals with links to a ring of supposed extremists inspired by the Islamic State, arresting six people.

According to the German newspaper Bild, the raids were carried out on addresses in the cities of Cologne and Dueren in western Germany. Police were reported to have seized knives, baseball bats, laptops, external hard drives, and mobile phones.

Cologne police mentioned that the raids were launched on the suspicions that the alleged terrorists were planning to carry out an attack. Police said that they hoped that the raids would provide them with concrete evidence of the group’s plot.

Tommy Robinson Transferred to UK Prison Known as a “Jihadist Training Camp”

The judge admitted that they specifically wanted to make an example of Robinson.

UK activist Tommy Robinson was sentenced to six months in prison last week for three counts of contempt of court. He was sent back to prison immediately following the conclusion of the hearing.

The sentence is highly unusual as contempt of court cases almost always lead to a non-custodial sentence — especially for journalists. Typically, a media outlet or journalist would face a slap on the wrist or light fine. Yet, one of the judges in the case, Dame Victoria Sharp, said that “nothing less than a custodial penalty would reflect the gravity” of the situation.

Hindu Man Beaten to Death by Jihadi Mob After His Bike Hits a Muslim Woman in Alwar

Lynching Jihad: Hindu man of Dalit community beaten to death after his bike hits a Muslim woman, family alleges mob lynching by Umar Sher and his Jihadi associates.

Upananda Brahmachari | HENB | Haridwar | July 20, 2019:: Pro-Pak Indian politicians, moron Indian media, pervert Indian intellectuals and opportunist Indian social activists set a new definition of mob-lynching. They have introduced a new norms for it. If any Muslim is killed by a mob, even caught red handed in any crime infusing heat in the mob, it is definitely a mob lynching. But, if the peace lover Muslims get infuriated by Quranic teachings and collectively kill any non-Muslim, then it is a pious act and can’t call it a mob-lynching. No, politician, media, intellectual, activists will come forward to stand with that non-Muslim victim as they prefer a Lynch Jihad than a mob-lynching very obviously!

In Rajasthan’s Alwar district, a Hindu man of Dalit Community named Harish Jatav died on Thursday after battling for his life for two days in a Delhi Hospital. Harish was allegedly beaten mercilessly by a Muslim mob after his bike hurt a Muslim woman in the Fasla village on Tuesday.

As per reports, Harish Jatav from Jhinvana village was passing through the market in Fasla village under Chopanki police station when a Muslim woman named Hakiman was hit by his bike.

As per reports, both Harish and Hakiman were found on the Bhiwadi-Chopanki road. While Hakiman was taken to the hospital by her family members, Harish was taken to hospital in a critical condition by the police. He was bleeding profusely. Angry Jihadi locals had reportedly thrashed Harish severely after the accident.

Harish had no intention to hit the Muslim woman, it was mere an accident. But, the local Muslim residents did not spared Harish anyway. Harish was a victim of Mob-lynching. But, nobody is to come forward to protest this mob-lynching as the victim was a Hindu and the attackers were Muslims. So, a Lynching Jihad is spreading in India unabated…

West Bengal: Hindu Student Thrashed by Jihadi Students for Protesting ‘Allah Ho Akbar’ During National Anthem

Allah ho Akbar slogan during reciting National Anthem of India. Hindu student thrashed badly by Jihadi students for protesting the vilification of ‘Jana Gana Mana’ in a High School in West Bengal.

Upendra Bharti | HENB | Canning | July 19. 2019:: In a very embarrassing situation a Hindu student was thrashed by Muslim boys of upper classes of the same school as the lone student protested the Allah-ho-Akbar slogan while National Anthem of India, ‘Jana Gana Mana’ was singing by the students of Taldi Mohanchand High School on Thrusday.

As many of Muslims clerics and Muslim Political leaders have been denying the Vande Mataram and Jana Gana Mana, the Jihadi influence are obviously affected on the Muslim students day by day. The anti-National effect on Indian National Song and Anthem so far were seen in schools and madrasas in Muslim majority areas in many place in India, but the bitter experience to that effect are being perceived in many Hindu majority areas also, where the Jihadi students are present in good numbers.

On Thrusday, when the students of Taldi Mohanchand High School (under Canning Police Station area in South 24 Pgs,WB) were singing the national anthem in the morning prayer as a customary, some Muslims students of class XII standard all on a sudden started the slogan as ‘Narae Taqber Allah ho Akbar’. Seeingn this, Arup Halder, a student of class IX standard vehemently protested the vilification of National Anthem by the unruly Muslim students. Arup tried to attract the notice of the teachers present in the morning prayer of the school.

But, the infuriated Muslim students jointly attacked Arup and thrashed him badly. Seeing his deteriorating condition, he was then admitted in Canning Hospital.

When parents of Arup tried to lodge a complaint to Canning Police station, the Officers present in the PS did not take any complaint; rather they procured a signature of the mother of Arup in a plain paper for a mutual settlement of the matter…

Bolsonaro Calls Amazon Deforestation Data ‘Lies’

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro has accused his own country’s national space institute of lying about the scale of deforestation in the Amazon.

He said the institute was smearing Brazil’s reputation abroad by publishing data showing a dramatic increase in deforestation there.

The far-right president said he wanted to meet with the head of the agency to discuss the issue.

The National Space Research Institute (Inpe) says its data is 95% accurate.

Mr Bolsonaro’s comments on Friday came a day after preliminary satellite data released by Inpe showed that more than 1,000 sq km (400 sq miles) of the rainforest had been cleared in the first 15 days of July — an increase of 68% from the entire month of July 2018.

Speaking in a meeting with foreign journalists, Mr Bolsonaro said the data “doesn’t relate to the reality”.

CNN’s Amazing Dishonesty in Smearing Assange

CNN has published an unbelievably brazen and dishonest smear piece on Julian Assange, easily the most egregious article of its kind since the notoriously bogus Assange-Manafort report by The Guardian last year. It contains none of the “exclusive” documents that it claims substantiate its smears, relying solely on vague, unsubstantiated assertions and easily debunked lies to paint the WikiLeaks founder in a negative light.

And let’s be clear right off the bat, it is most certainly a smear piece. The article, titled “Exclusive: Security reports reveal how Assange turned an embassy into a command post for election meddling,” admits that it exists for the sole purpose of tarnishing Assange’s reputation when it reports, with no evidence whatsoever, that while at the Ecuadorian embassy Assange once “smeared feces on the walls out of anger.” Not “reportedly.” Not “the Ecuadorian government claims.” CNN reported it as a fact, as an event that is known to have happened. This is journalistic malpractice, and it isn’t an accident.

CAIR’s Obstruction of Trump’s ICE Raids

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the self-described “Muslim civil rights organization” with a history of undermining law enforcement, has put the migrant crisis front and center of its newest efforts.

Last week the Dallas-Fort Worth chapter of CAIR reissued a community advisory aimed at undermining law enforcement efforts to conduct raids on illegal migrants who face a court removal order. The Trump administration has said it is focusing its efforts on carrying out removal orders on migrants involved in criminal activity.

Among the rights CAIR-DFW (and the national chapter) advises these undocumented immigrants to exercise in their “Know Your Rights” pamphlet are:

Chinese Immigrant Kathy Zhu Stripped of “Miss Michigan” Title After Refusing to Wear Hijab

Pro-Trump conservative refuses to back down in face of political correctness

The woman chosen as Miss Michigan World America was stripped of her title Thursday after butting heads with the organization over her conservative-leaning political views.

Kathy Zhu says she was booted from the Miss World America pageant “due to my refusal to try on a hijab in 2018, my tweet about black on black gun violence, and ‘insensitive’ statistical tweets.”

“Miss World America’s State/National/Chief Director accused me of being racist, Islamaphobic, and insensitive,” Zhu wrote on Twitter, posting the director’s email to her, along with her own response which calls out Sharia Law.

In a letter back to the organization, Zhu refused to back down to the organization’s political correctness and further shed light on the “hijab” incident.

“Do you know what is ‘insensitive’?” she asked the pageants’ directors. “What’s ‘insensitive’ is that women in the middle east are getting STONED TO DEATH for refusing to obey they husband’s order to wear hijabs.”

“A muslim woman tried to FORCIBLY put a hijab on my head without my permission. I tweeted about it on my social media, and it got the attention of the media. Almost everyone was supportive of me refusing to be put in that situation.”

Democrats Doomed in 2020 for Not Preventing Illegal Entry Into USA

Trump is set to make mincemeat of the Democrats for embracing illegal immigration in 2020

The Democrats have signed their own political suicide note for the 2020 elections with the revelation that 19 of the 22 defendants indicted on federal charges of racketeering and murder had entered the USA illegally from Central America.

The situation for the Democrats is even direr as 3 of those arrested had existing deportation orders against them whilst 5 others had sought asylum.

A federal indictment-unsealed this week-charges 16 of the 22 defendants-members of the MS 13 gang-with murders that are eligible for the death penalty; victims were beaten, tortured, and in one case, dismembered, with weapons that included knives, machetes, rocks, and pipes.

American citizens’security and safety have been clearly exposed by this newest case as being at great risk.

Democratic Party policy that has refused to co-operate with President Trump’s entreaty to join with the Republicans in introducing urgent bipartisan legislation to stop continuing illegal entry into America is under increasing public scrutiny.

A Democratic Party wipe out in the 2020 elections seems an assured outcome if no reforms are made.

Illegal Alien Twice Deported is Accused of Murdering Iowa Mother and Two Children

There is blood on the hands of open borders advocates and Democrats who refuse to close loopholes in our immigration system.

Marvin Oswaldo Escobar-Orellana, a 31-year-old from Guatemala, was arrested and charged with three counts of first-degree murder after he allegedly shot and killed 29-year-old Rossibeth Flores-Rodriguez, as well as her 11-year-old daughter and 5-year-old son (pictured below).

Fox Carolina reports that illegal alien Escobar-Orellana was living at the family’s home in Des Moines, Iowa but had no personal relationship with the Flores-Rodriguez family.

Immigration the Path to Power

Our nation is in a conflict unlike any other in our history. There are powerful Marxist forces from within and without teamed up to take us down under the age-old guise of making our lives better. They will say, promise, and do anything to win. After almost one-hundred years, they have too much invested to do otherwise.

For those that see the final confrontation coming, no persuasion is necessary. For those who either don’t see it, aren’t looking, don’t understand, or choose to live in ignorance, no amount of persuasion will suffice. But, I will try anyway. Communists have chosen to employ to achieve their goals.illegal immigration, Destruction of our culture, institutions, and morality, Resurrecting long past racism

Now, for the last several years we finally clearly see the goals and methods these Communists have chosen to employ to achieve those goals.illegal immigration, the destruction of our culture, institutions, and morality, resurrecting long past racism, a fiscally over-burdened government, and a collection of citizenry addicted to freebies. Anyone who has read the 45 Goals of the Communist Takeover of America as presented to Congress in 1963 will see that they are following the plan closely and largely succeeding.

With these Socialists/Communists finding a home in the Democrat Party and their faithful voters dwindling, importing millions of new Democrat voters becomes paramount. These immigrants, unaccustomed to our meritocracy culture and values, are being promised everything former Democrats were pledged. When the Right objects, they accuse them of the mortal sin of racism…

Our enemies have long concluded that a military victory over the United States would be impossible. As a result, a new approach was essential.

While the external opposition has slowly come to that conclusion, the forces already embedded in our government and the private Marxist institutions like Hollywood, the media, and the education system, so prevalent today, have joined forces with those malicious foreign powers. They have found our Achilles heel.our freedoms, our affinity for justice and fairness, They are now using that as the final weapon against us.

Italy: Prosecutors to Charge Another Migrant Transport NGO

Italian prosecutors have requested an indictment against members of the migrant transport NGO Proactiva Open Arms, arguing that two senior members of the group are involved in aiding illegal migration.

Prosecutor Fabio D’Anna and the deputy Santo Fornasier have requested indictments against Marc Reig Creus and the head of the NGO’s mission Ana Isabel Mier on the grounds that they aided illegal immigration in March last year, Il Giornale reports.

The NGO is accused of ignoring orders to proceed to Malta and docking at an Italian port instead. The prosecutor alleged that as a result of their actions, the Italian state had become a victim of aggression aimed at “promoting illegal migration”.

Mass Fraud by African Refugees Halted Inflow After Ilhan Omar Came to U.S.

A refugee program that allowed foreign relatives of already-arrived foreign refugees to the United States was halted, altogether, more than a decade ago due to mass fraud among applicants.

This week, Powerline blog’s David Steinberg suggested that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) entered the U.S. in the mid-1990s as a third-priority, known as P-3, refugee — that is, a refugee who is admitted to the country due to their ties to an already-resettled refugee.

Steinberg’s report also claims that Omar committed immigration fraud when she falsely entered the country as a member of the “Omar” family that had already resettled in the U.S.

Migrant Death Rate Under Trump 20 Percent Lower Than Obama Years

Deaths of migrants who illegally crossed the border during the first two years of the Trump administration fell about 20 percent from the eight-year average under the Obama era. This is in sharp contrast to the political rhetoric of Democrat presidential candidates and certain media outlets decrying the treatment of migrants under President Donald Trump’s watch.

During the eight years of the Obama administration, 2,977 migrants died after illegally crossing the southwest border with Mexico — 372 per year on average, according to a report obtained from U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials.

During the first two complete fiscal years of the Trump administration, 581 migrants died — an average of 291 per year. Despite massively higher border apprehensions in Fiscal Year 2019, the number of deaths appears to be on par with the two prior years, according to the International Organization for Migrants’ Missing Migrant Project. This represents about a 20 percent drop from the Obama administration’s reported migrant deaths.

‘Minor’ Migrant Sentenced for Murder of Swedish Teenager

An Eritrean migrant claiming to be 16 has been sentenced to seven years in prison followed by deportation for the murder of a 15-year-old Swedish schoolmate.

The murder took place in February and saw the “underage” migrant get into a fight with the victim who had previously been his friend, and during the altercation he strangled the 15-year-old and killed him — although the migrant claims he did not kill the teen on purpose, Nyheter Idag reports.

Following the death of the teen, the migrant emptied the victim’s pockets and took photographs of the body on his mobile phone that he deleted the next day, but they were recovered by forensic experts.

The family of the teen reported him missing two days after the murder but the body was not found until February 13th after the Eritrean had admitted the incident to a friend. The friend relayed the information to his parents who called the police. The migrant was arrested that day.

While the Eritrean maintained he was 16, medical tests revealed him to be at least 18 years old and a witness stated that he was as old as 21.

Trump’s ‘Accidental’ Win on the Citizenship Question

The real question for the citizens of America should be: Are we going to count illegal aliens in reapportionment of congressional districts in the states

Whether by accident or by design, President Trump has alighted upon the exact right solution for ascertaining the truest enumeration of American citizens. Not only that, but his workaround solution should have been done regardless of the recent opinion by the Supreme Court. That is, even if the Court had found that the administration could include the citizenship question in the census, Trump should still have directed his agencies, especially the Social Security Administration, to have their computer programmers write simple little programs to count up the people on their databases by citizen and all other categories.

Americans who care about citizenship or just the corruption of our data should rejoice over Pres. Trump’s announcement on July 11. And here’s what’s nifty about the president’s directive — we don’t need to wait for 2020 to get a much better idea of how many citizens are in the country, we should be able to get that data very soon. One datum I’m anxious to learn is the number of U.S. citizens still residing in California, the state with the largest number of illegal aliens.

Americans are a highly mobile lot, and for quite some time now they’ve been fleeing California and New York for other states because of high taxes, cost of living, and undesirableness. Wouldn’t it be a kicker if Trump’s computer reports showed that those states are overrepresented in Congress? But here’s the real question for America: Should we be counting noncitizens to determine the number of congressional districts in the states? This citizen thinks not…

If the most accurate count of U.S. citizens would come from federal databases, then the only reason to conduct a census is to count up illegal aliens. States like California want their illegals counted in the census because it gets them more representatives in Congress and more federal money, which Congress must borrow. I wonder what Wyoming residents think of that?

Drag Queen Reads ‘What Color is Your Underwear?’ to Young Children

A “Drag Queen Story Hour” event at a Dallas, Texas, library last Saturday featured two drag queens, one of whom read the story What Color Is Your Underwear? to small children.

More than 50 parents brought their children to the story hour held at the Grauwyler Park Branch Library and hosted by drag queens “Cassie Nova” (aka James Gary Love) and “Jenna Skyy” (aka Joel S. Hoselton).

“My little cousin dressed me,” Cassie, with pink and orange hair, told the children, reported Dallas Voice. “So, I’m wearing A LOT!”

Cassie reportedly also read My Cat Jack to the children, encouraging them to yawn, stretch, and scratch like cats.

A video of the event can be viewed at the website of pro-family organization Mass Resistance, which protested the story hour…

When a Mass Resistance activist asked a librarian who selected the books to be read to the children, the librarian reportedly responded that the Drag Queen Story Hour event is simply a form of “entertainment.” She added the library had conducted background checks on the drag queens…

One drag queen made headlines last fall when he admitted drag queens are not just about “entertainment.”

Dylan Pontiff, a gay man who uses the name Santana Pilar Andrews when dressed in drag, helped organize a story hour for Louisiana preschoolers. He said the event’s purpose is “the grooming of the next generation.”

Study: Transgender Hormone Treatments Lower IQ

Hormone disruptors administered to adolescent males impair cognitive development, study suggests

A study monitoring the cognitive effects of sex hormones on an 11-year-old child showed significant decrease in IQ points after hormone disruptors were administered.

Published in the Frontiers in Human Neuroscience medical journal in November 2017, the study observed the 11-year-old, who was born a boy, before and after hormone suppressors “to review the effects of puberty suppression on the brain white matter during adolescence.”

“According to the results obtained through the cognitive evaluations, the patient presented a decrease in their overall intellectual performance after the onset of pubertal block, pointing to immaturity in her cognitive development,” scientists reported.

After 28 months of hormone suppression, scientists noted the patient’s brain white matter “remained unchanged. which may be related to reduced serum testosterone levels.”

In a subsequent discussion, researchers stated the subject’s global IQ (GIQ) “was further slightly reduced during the follow-up with [hormone disruptor] treatment.”

“In fact, the low average GIQ together with impairment in the perceptual organization of intelligence and processing speed index presented even before treatment suggest that any neurodevelopmental immaturity may have been potentiated by pubertal suppression,” the study reads.

Apollo at 50: Looking Back, And Forward

The 20th century was one of wonders and horrors, in both cases, never before equaled. The horrors came courtesy of war, famine, dictatorship, and genocide, of which there was far too much. The wonders, equally stupendous, were the counterpoint to the horrors, inspiring generations throughout the century to ever greater exertions, discoveries, and accomplishments. When the century started, horse and buggy predominated, and steam power ran the rails. Crossing the ocean remained a dangerous proposition.

The Real Angela Davis

The National Museum of African-American History and Culture in our nation’s capital fills a void, providing us with an in depth look at the unique African-American experience in America since the days of slavery.

It is disheartening, therefore, to hear that this coming September the museum is featuring an old documentary on Angela Davis titled, Free Angela Davis and All Political Prisoners. After the screening there will be a discussion moderated by Rhea Combs who will interview and question Ms. Davis. In announcing the event, the museum’s press release notes that “we all recognize that Prof. Davis is a figure for the ages, as fascinating to us now as she was at the height of her incarceration and trial” (which took place in 1972). The release added that Davis’s life “is a quintessential American story of activism,” and that “because of her activism in support of social justice, she was criminalized and named on the FBI’s 10 most wanted list.”

This description is demonstrably false. And it elides the most important parts of Davis’s biography.

    In St. Petersburg, a native of Dagestan stabbed two deaf-and-dumb Ukrainians, who did not answer his question “Are you leaving?”.

    According to the newspaper, the conflict occurred on the night of July 20 in a subway car at the Pushkinskaya station. A 36-year-old man who came from Derbent, attacked with a knife for two people. He hit the first one twice, the second one.

    A 26-year-old local resident intervened. He knocked the knife out of the hands of the assailant and pulled him onto the platform, where the police were already. It turned out that the victims from Ukraine are both deaf and dumb. They were taken to the Mariinsky hospital with chest wounds, in serious condition, they had to undergo surgery.

    Is Kamala Harris Black Enough?

    The number two contender for the Democrat nomination has a mother from India and a father descended from Jamaican slave-holders. But there are plenty of other reasons not to want her as president.

    https://youtu.be/I5Hc7eTjeAg

  3. But there are plenty of other reasons not to want her as president.

    A few more of those inappropriate vowels or consonants in her name would be sufficient justification all by itself. Hell, at least the word “Trump” appears in everyday conversation, albeit mostly at bridge tournaments.

  4. Kamala Harris is constitutionally not eligible to be President. Neither of her parents were US citizens when she was born. Under the commonly accepted ‘anchor baby’ policy, she is a US citizen. But she is most assuredly not a natural born citizen.

    With Obama, one interpretation of constitutional law says that since his mom was a US citizen, then so was he, and a natural born one at that. I do not agree with this, but it is at least on its face a semi-logical sounding argument.

    With Harris, since neither of her parents were citizens when she was born, there is simply no interpretation of our law that gets her to natural born status. She is not, cannot be, and will never be a natural born citizen of the US.

    It amazes me that so far not one word of this has been broached by anyone in the media or politics. I suppose they are all afraid of being branded as racists.

    • The Supreme Court, in the 1875 case of Minor v Happersett, defined ‘natural born citizen’ as meaning having been born in the USA of two citizen parents. To the best of my knowledge, this is the only definition which SCOTUS has seen fit to issue.

      Harris is not a natural born citizen, and neither is Tulsi Gabbard, by this definition.
