Stocks Plunge After Trump Vows to Retaliate to China “This Afternoon”, Orders US Companies to Find “An Alternative to China”

The reason for Trump’s ire: the continued theft of US IP over the years

Anyone who was hoping for a quiet end to the week is currently having a panic attack, as first China announced new tariffs on the US, then Powell’s J-Hole speech came and went, and then, as we expected, Trump responded to China’s trade war escalation when in a barrage of 4 tweets he lashed out at Beijing, saying “We don’t need China and, frankly, would be far better off without them”, and ordered “Our great American companies… to immediately start looking for an alternative to China, including bringing your companies HOME and making your products in the USA.”

He also ordered “all carriers, including Fed Ex, Amazon, UPS and the Post Office, to SEARCH FOR & REFUSE, all deliveries of Fentanyl from China (or anywhere else!). Fentanyl kills 100,000 Americans a year. President Xi said this would stop — it didn’t.”

The reason for Trump’s ire: the continued theft of US IP over the years:

“Our Country has lost, stupidly, Trillions of Dollars with China over many years. They have stolen our Intellectual Property at a rate of Hundreds of Billions of Dollars a year, & they want to continue. I won’t let that happen! We don’t need China and, frankly, would be far better off without them.

The vast amounts of money made and stolen by China from the United States, year after year, for decades, will and must STOP.

Our great American companies are hereby ordered to immediately start looking for an alternative to China, including bringing your companies HOME and making your products in the USA.

I will be responding to China’s Tariffs this afternoon. This is a GREAT opportunity for the United States.

Also, I am ordering all carriers, including Fed Ex, Amazon, UPS and the Post Office, to SEARCH FOR & REFUSE, all deliveries of Fentanyl from China (or anywhere else!). Fentanyl kills 100,000 Americans a year. President Xi said this would stop — it didn’t.

Our Economy, because of our gains in the last 2 1/2 years, is MUCH larger than that of China. We will keep it that way!”

[Comment: Trump is right about the trillions in IP theft. Don’t forget traitors like Clinton ensured China got the W8 multiple nuke warhead guidance technology under the cover of “dual use” — www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/265200/flashback-bill-clinton-gave-china-missile-matthew-vadum]

When it Comes to the U.S. Economy, Everyone Wants to Pin the Credit or the Blame on Donald Trump

No matter what happens with the U.S. economy, most of the credit or the blame is going to go to President Trump. And now that the U.S. economy appears to be headed for big trouble, the mainstream media is salivating over what this could mean for Trump’s chances of winning in 2020. Within the past few days, the New York Times, the Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC and Fox News have all run stories about Trump and the economy, and they are all perpetuating the false premise that presidents should be held accountable for how the economy performs. As I have repeatedly reminded my readers, the truth is that U.S. presidents generally have relatively little control over the direction of the economy. In our system, it is the central planners at the Federal Reserve that primarily direct our economy, and so most of the credit or the blame for our economic performance should go to them. And the truth is that even President Trump realizes this. He understands that the Federal Reserve has control over key economic tools that he does not, and that is one of the reasons why he is so frustrated right now. The Fed is not running things the way that he would run them, and he realizes that this could severely hurt his chances of winning the next election.

During his first term, President Trump has not actually been able to do much to alter the overall trajectory of the economy. Some pundits point to the tax cuts that he was able to pass, and certainly reducing corporate tax rates helped things a little bit in the short-term, but the overall impact of the tax bill was relatively negligible. Ultimately, the moves that the Federal Reserve has been making have been far more important, and at this point Trump seems to be convinced that Fed Chair Jerome Powell and others are intentionally trying to undermine him…

American Apocalypse: The Government’s Plot to Destabilize the Nation is Working

In 2009, reports by the Department of Homeland Security surfaced that labeled right-wing and left-wing activists and military veterans as extremists (a.k.a. terrorists) and called on the government to subject such targeted individuals to full-fledged pre-crime surveillance. Almost a decade later, after spending billions to fight terrorism, the DHS concluded that the greater threat is not ISIS but domestic right-wing extremism.

Meanwhile, the government has been amassing an arsenal of military weapons for use domestically and equipping and training their “troops” for war. Even government agencies with largely administrative functions such as the Food and Drug Administration, Department of Veterans Affairs, and the Smithsonian have been acquiring body armor, riot helmets and shields, cannon launchers and police firearms and ammunition. In fact, there are now at least 120,000 armed federal agents carrying such weapons who possess the power to arrest.

Rounding out this profit-driven campaign to turn American citizens into enemy combatants (and America into a battlefield) is a technology sector that has been colluding with the government to create a Big Brother that is all-knowing, all-seeing and inescapable. It’s not just the drones, fusion centers, license plate readers, stingray devices and the NSA that you have to worry about. You’re also being tracked by the black boxes in your cars, your cell phone, smart devices in your home, grocery loyalty cards, social media accounts, credit cards, streaming services such as Netflix, Amazon, and e-book reader accounts.

All of this has taken place right under our noses, funded with our taxpayer dollars and carried out in broad daylight without so much as a general outcry from the citizenry.

Critics Mock CNN for Hiring Ex-FBI Official Andrew McCabe: ‘Will Only Further Plunge the Network’s Credibility Into a Black Hole’

CNN announced Friday it hired controversial ex-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe as a contributor, and critics quickly slammed the decision as a “disservice” to viewers.

McCabe was famously fired by the FBI on March 16, 2018, after a Justice Department inspector general report found he had repeatedly misstated his involvement in a leak to The Wall Street Journal regarding an FBI investigation into the Clinton Foundation. The watchdog office referred the matter to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Washington, which has been investigating.

Facebook Knows Where You’ve Been, And it Won’t Let You Erase the Evidence

Facebook has launched a tool to “clear” your history. “To help shed more light on these practices that are common yet not always well understood, today we’re introducing a new way to view and control your off-Facebook activity” the newsroom article announced. “Off-Facebook Activity lets you see a summary of the apps and websites that send us information about your activity, and clear this information from your account if you want to.”

There’s just one problem, summarized by Mashable:

“After numerous delays, they’re now starting to roll out the ‘clear history’ feature. The catch? It doesn’t actually ‘clear’ any of your data at all.”

The engineers wrote that the process of deleting the information taken from unaware users would “take time and may not work reliably.” They added that “the quicker, more reliable method would be to disconnect it directly from a person’s account.”

In other words, Facebook will still have user information, it will just hopefully be anonymous. Good luck if users searched for websites that personally identify themselves and their families.

Former Kavanaugh Classmate Sues HuffPo for Defamation

“Defendants’ statements were false, malicious and fabricated, and were published with a knowing, intentional, subjective awareness of, and/or reckless disregard of, their falsity”

Here at LI, we covered the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation extensively, including the wild and ultimately debunked accusations against Justice Kavanaugh.

The media frenzy was as disgusting as it was illuminating. The leftstream media fully embraced its role as partisan social justice warriors and worked hard to derail Kavanaugh’s confirmation despite the ludicrous nature of the unsubstantiated claims against him.

Derrick Evans, one of Kavanaugh’s former classmates, is now suing the Huffington Post in relation to their role in the frenzy. According to the filing, HuffPo allegedly engaged in the fabrication of sources and evidence and to have defamed Evans in the process.

Franklin Graham: SPLC is a ‘Sham’

Evangelist Franklin Graham warns anyone who would consider the advice of the Southern Poverty Law Center that the organization is a “sham.”

While it once focused on fighting the KKK, SPLC now routinely slaps the “hate” label on Christians and Christian organizations because of their religious beliefs.

“Southern Poverty Law Center is a sham,” Graham wrote on Facebook. “This left-wing secularist group falsely labels Christian and conservative organizations that defend life, marriage, and religious freedom as ‘hate groups.’these lies against great organizations including Family Research Council and Alliance Defending Freedom even led to the vicious attack described in this link.”

Graham, the CEO of both Samaritan’s Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, said it’s “a shame that anyone would even consider SPLC’s opinion — they have a history of corruption and virtually zero credibility.”

Jail Bosses Knew Epstein Should be Watched, Source Tells Lawyer Financier’s Death Wasn’t Suicide

News reports provide reason to think Esptein’s “suicide” might not have been a suicide after all

Two more news reports provide a reason to think that pervert financier Jeffrey Esptein’s “suicide” in a federal jail might not have been a suicide after all.

The Washington Post reported Wednesday that at least eight jail officials knew not to leave the Deep State moneyman alone in his cell in the Special Housing Unit at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York, where Epstein was found dead on August 10.

And a lawyer for three of the registered sex offender’s victims, Britain’s Sun newspaper reported yesterday, received a cryptic phone call from a jail employee who said not to believe that Epstein took his own life.

Even before those facts surfaced, however, the circumstances of Epstein’s death were highly suspicious.

John Solomon: 10 Secret Documents Capable of ‘Rocking’ Deep State

Could reveal how counterintel probe ‘hijacked’to turn ‘awesome spy powers’ against Trump

John Solomon, an award-winning investigative journalist who uncovered FBI intelligence failures before 9/11, has revealed a list of 10 secret documents about the Russia-collusion scandal that have the potential of “rocking” Washington’s deep state.

They could show, he reported in the Hill, “how a routine counterintelligence probe was hijacked to turn the most awesome spy powers in America against a presidential nominee in what was essentially a political dirty trick orchestrated by Democrats.”

He said there has been discussion about making some of the documents public.

“But the long wait for transparency may soon end,” he said. “The foot-dragging inside the intelligence community (IC) that occurred under now-departed DNI Dan Coats and his deputy, Sue Gordon, could halt abruptly. That’s particularly true if Trump appoints a new IC sheriff, such as former House Intelligence Committee Chairman Pete Hoekstra (R-Mich.), the current ambassador to the Netherlands, or longtime national security expert Fred Fleitz.”

His own research suggests there are about a dozen documents altogether that could severely impact the deep state.

He listed the top 10.

MI School District Holds Taxpayer-Funded, 2-Day, Mandatory Islamic Training for Public School Teachers

The Thomas More Law Center (TMLC), a national nonprofit public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, has uncovered evidence of a well-orchestrated Islamic propaganda campaign aimed at teachers in school systems throughout Michigan and several other states.

Concerned about a two-day mandatory teacher-training seminar on Islam conducted by a Muslim consultant hired by Michigan’s Novi Community Schools District, TMLC filed a Freedom of Information Act request for documents related to the workshop.

Richard Thompson, president and chief counsel of the Law Center, commented on the results of their investigation, “We found that the teachers were subjected to two days of Islamic propaganda, where Islam was glorified, Christianity disparaged, and America bashed—all funded by Novi taxpayers.”

Moreover, during the past five years the school district has presented no teacher-training seminars focusing on Christianity, Judaism or any other religion — only Islam.

Most disappointing was the fact that of the more than 400 teachers attending the workshop, not one teacher challenged Essa’s denigration of Christianity or attacks on America.

A quick glance at Huda Hessa’s Facebook page, might lead one to believe that she’s working toward a goal of inclusiveness for all students, but upon closer inspection, it appears that her goal is to convince teachers to incorporate far-left social justice teachings in the classroom.

Pre-Crime Hysteria Sweeps the Nation as Dozens Are Arrested for Making Internet and Social Media ‘Threats’

The nationwide hysteria following mass shootings that occurred earlier this month in El Paso, TX and Dayton, OH is spiking, as dozens of people have been apprehended and charged after making supposed threats on social media and other digital forums in recent weeks.

At least 27 individuals have been arrested since the shootings, including several minors, as pre-crime becomes the new norm due to the frenzy created by emotionally-driven coverage from the fake news. Some of the threats seem credible, including a 38-year-old truck driver who was arrested after making “credible threats to conduct a mass shooting and suicide” according to an FBI agent and a 19-year-old Chicago man of foreign descent who was charged after outlining specific plans to commit murders at an abortion facility.

However, others being targeted are children and young people swept up in the enforcement crackdown. A 13-year-old child was arrested following reports of an unnamed threat allegedly made against a Wal-Mart in Weslaco, TX. A 15-year-old boy in Volusia County, Florida was charged after making a joke in a video game chat room.

Queens Women Plead Guilty to Planning Islamic Terror Attacks

Both intent on waging violent jihad in US

Earlier today, at the federal courthouse in Brooklyn, Asia Siddiqui and Noelle Velentzas, both citizens of the United States and residents of Queens, pleaded guilty to teaching and distributing information pertaining to the making and use of an explosive, destructive device, and weapon of mass destruction, intending that it be used to commit a federal crime of violence.

The guilty pleas were entered before United States District Court Judge Sterling Johnson Jr. When sentenced, the defendants face up to 20 years in prison.

“Inspired by radical Islam, Velentzas and Siddiqui researched and taught each other how to construct bombs to be used on American soil against law enforcement and military targets,” said Assistant Attorney General John C. Demers. “They were thwarted by the excellent work of the agents, analysts and prosecutors who are responsible for this investigation and prosecution. For this, we are grateful.”

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Treated for New Pancreatic Cancer

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was recently treated for a “localized malignant tumor” on her pancreas, a court spokesperson said Friday.

“The tumor was treated definitively and there is no evidence of disease elsewhere in the body,” spokesperson Kathy Arberg said.

Trump Announces Additional Increase in Tariffs on China

President Trump announced he would be placing additional tariffs on Chinese goods in response to China placing tariffs on U.S. goods.

“China should not have put new Tariffs on 75 BILLION DOLLARS of United States product (politically motivated!). Starting on October 1st, the 250 BILLION DOLLARS of goods and products from China, currently being taxed at 25%, will be taxed at 30%,” Trump said Friday on Twitter. “Additionally, the remaining 300 BILLION DOLLARS of goods and products from China, that was being taxed from September 1st at 10%, will now be taxed at 15%.”

As Boris Achieves Micro-Steps With EU Leaders, Brexiteers Warn it Isn’t Enough

EU Panic: Brussels ‘In Distress’ Due to Johnson’s Tactics — ‘Brexit is Finally Happening!’

FRENCH eurosceptic Florian Philippot said on Thursday European leaders had entered panic mode, after Prime Minister Boris Johnson appeared to inch a step closer to clinching a new Brexit deal.

France’s pro-EU leader has stressed the Brexit ball is now in the UK’s court. He said, while the bloc does not want a no-deal exit, it would be ready if it happened. “Ultra-Europeans are in distress because Brexit is finally happening. This goes to show that when you push back against threats and blackmail, you can get things done!” Mr Philippot, leader of the far-right The Patriots party, tweeted. “Kudos to Boris Johnson, whose will and resolve have helped the UK get out of the EU,” he added.

Five Indicted After French Police Bust Shisha Bar Illegal Drug Network

Five men have been indicted after French police in the city of Angers made a record seizure of cannabis in the city from a drugs network operating out of local shisha bars.

The arrests of the five men occurred in December of last year but they were only brought before a judge and indicted this week for their alleged involvement in drug trafficking, Ouest France reports.

Police discovered a record 2.5 tonnes of illegal cannabis in December, packed into around 80 suitcases and kept in the trailer of a rented truck.

Prior to the discovery, police investigators had been tracking Kamel Yousfi, believed to be the ringleader behind the drug network, for several months.

Ireland: Childcare Worker Killed by Her Married BDSM Master Tried to ‘Cry for Help’ By Telling Her Family About Their Affair

A murdered woman who was stabbed to death by her BDSM ‘master’ may have told her friends and family about her sex life as an ‘early cry for help’, according to a criminologist.

Elaine O’Hara, 36, from Dublin, was stabbed to death by Graham Dwyer, 42, in August 2012, in what is considered one of the most complex criminal cases in Ireland’s history.

During the trial, the killing was described as the ‘nearly perfect murder’, given that Elaine was initially thought to have taken her own life, and the fact that Dwyer was only caught due to a series of coincidental events.

A new documentary Secrets of a Psychopath, which airs from Saturday 24th to Monday 26th August at 10pm on CBS Reality, reveals new details about the horrendous murder.

Italy: M5S, PD Govt Talks Get Off to ‘Constructive’ Start

Constructive talks says Marcucci, wide agreement says Delrio

(ANSA) — Rome, August 23 — The anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S) and the centre-left Democratic Party (PD) on Friday started talks both sides described as “constructive” on possibly forming a coalition government replacing the M5S’s alliance with the nationalist League which League leader Matteo Salvini sank earlier this month.

“There are no unsurmountable problems”, texted one of the Democratic Party PD delegation members after the first session of the talks.

PD Senate Whip Andrea Marcucci said that “the meeting took place in a positive and constructive climate, which makes us hope for the best on the prospects (for a deal)”.

PD House Whip Graziano Delrio said that “there was ample convergence on the points of the environmental and social agenda. There is very serious work to be done on the budget bill, on the priorities”.

PD deputy leader Andrea Orlando said that “we will prepare the dossiers necessary for talks on all the issues of the programmatic agenda, we await approval by the leaders of the two parties. We want to be operational in the next few hours”.

Orlando said the PD had asked that the M5S exclusively talk to the PD and not hold any talks with former ally the League.

M5S sources said that the talks had taken place in a “constructive climate” too.

They said the M5s had stressed the need to cut 345 MPs as a “fundamental point” for any alliance. “We need guarantees on this aspect,” the M5S sources said.

President Sergio Mattarella has given the former fierce foes until Wednesday to try to put together a new government to last until the end of the legislative term in 2023.

M5S leader Luigi Di Maio laid down 10 conditions for the government including a conflict of interest law, reform of State broadcaster RAI, cutting the tax wedge, a minimum wage, justice reform, green policies and, crucially, a reduction in the number of MPs and Senators from 945 to 600, not counting five life Senators.

PD leader Nicola Zingaretti set five conditions including a change from Salvini’s tough anti-migrant stance and his closed-ports policy for NGO migrant rescue ships. The PD was initially reported to be against cutting the number of MPs but is now said to be coming round to the idea, as part of a wider electoral reform restoring 100% proportional representation.

As part of any deal, the two parties would also have to come up with a proposed premier and there is speculation Italy might get its first woman premier in former justice minister Paola Severino, or Constitutional Court Vice President Marta Cartabia.

However, there is still a slim chance of the M5S reviving its alliance with the League if Di Maio accepts Salvini’s offer of the M5S leader becoming premier in a restored M5S-League alliance.

Mattarella will hold fresh consultations on resolving the government crisis starting Tuesday with officials and the small parties and ending Wednesday with the PD, League and M5S.

He has asked for a “solid and lasting” coalition to serve out the term to 2023, saying that early elections, probably on October 27, are the only alternative.

The new government will have to pass the 2021 budget law and avert a 23-billion-euro VAT hike.

The two delegations started talking at two o’clock in the afternoon.

Amid reports of PD infighting, Di Maio said the centre-left group was already quarrelling” even before the talks had started.

“These people are already quarrelling, we knew them quite well, unfortunately..let them get their ideas straight”, “he said, reiterating that cutting MPs from 945 to 600 was “the start of any talks, it must be done at once.

“If you don’t have the first point there’s nothing else,” he said.

The M5S leader was speaking after former PD leader and ex-premier Matteo Renzi accused former premier and now PD Chair Paolo Gentiloni of wanting to sink the M5S-PD bid by setting the condition that the M5S would have to give up on the MP cut.

That alleged attempt by Gentiloni has failed, Renzi said.

Zingaretti strongly denied any such attempt on the part of the PD chair and former premier.

Gentiloni never made any “manoeuvre” to sink PD-5-Star government talks and saying so is “ridiculous and offensive,” Zingaretti said Friday, denying Renzi’s claim.

“We are in the midst of extremely delicate consultations and we are all working together to reach a difficult objective,” Zingaretti said.

“This is to give life to a turning-point government to change Italy; and this needs a united spirit, to defend the contents, history and values of the Democratic Party”.

“I must once again, for the umpteenth time, make an appeal for responsibility: fundamental to reach this objective is to stop the continual proliferation of communique’s, quips, interviews which, indeed, put everything at risk and undermine our credibility”.

From Hebron 1929 to Tlaib-Omar 2019: the Jew-Hating, Jihadist-Marxist Alliance

Ninety years ago, late August, 1929, the U.S. Beatrice Daily Sun (Beatrice, Nebraska), proclaimed, “MOSLEMS SATE BLOOD LUST. Even Little Children Die By Knife in Jehad“ (Aug. 29, 1929; p.8). This brief report conveyed with grisly accuracy the Arab Muslim jihad [jehad] depredations against the Jews of Hebron which began with the insolated stabbings (one fatal) of two yeshiva students on Friday, August 23rd, followed by a raging massacre the next morning, during which 66 Jews were butchered within two-hours:

In practically every instance death was caused by swords or knives. Even young children of two and three years, many of them girls, did not escape the savagery of the attack.

While the greatest carnage of Jews was in Hebron, the Arab Muslim jihad rampages, which continued through August 29th, extended to Jerusalem 31 killed, 119 wounded; Safed 20 killed, 39 wounded; Jaffa 8 killed, 33 wounded; Haifa 6 killed, 67 wounded; Ramla 1 killed, 1 wounded; Beisan 25 wounded; Acre 3 wounded; and Nazareth 1 wounded. Even a strained “balanced” account of the 1929 Arab Muslim jihad—which ignores 1300 years of chronic jihad-imposed dhimmitude and Islamic antisemitism, with sporadic paroxysms of mass-murderous jihad violence against Jews, within their ancestral homeland—concedes, regarding the total of 133 Jews killed, and 241 injured:

A large majority of the Jews slain were unarmed and were murdered in their homes by Arabs. Most of the Arab dead were killed as they attacked Jewish settlements or neighborhoods. Most of the Arabs were felled by bullets fired by the British armed forces…

Jerusalem historian and journalist Pinchas Grayevsky (d. 1941) provided this graphic 1929 description of the brutal murder of Hebron pharmacist Ben-Zion Gershon:…

Here’s a shot from the area Tlaib’s grandmother lives in:

Israel Hayom reports about what it’s really like to live where Tlaib’s grandmother lives in the Palestinian village of Beit-Ur alFauqa.

US & Turkey Still Actively Protecting Al Qaeda, ISIS: Battle Map Update for Syria

This has been a difficult week for Western and Gulf state-backed terrorist militants in Syria. Still, based on all available data, it’s clear that the US and Turkey are still actively protecting al Qaeda and ISIS positions in Syria.

In the northern region of Syria, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) forces and allies entered the terrorist-occupied stronghold Khan Sheikhoun in Idlib, Syria, pushing western-backed terrorist ‘rebels’ from the town they’ve occupied since 2014.

Over in the eastern section of the country, the Russian Air Force unleashed heavy air strikes on a number of ISIS targets near the Deir Ezzor governorate.

Desperate to maintain the increasingly shaky positions held by their terrorist proxy fighters in Syria, NATO allies Turkey and the United States are attempting to revive the defunct 5 year-old plan to launch a “safe zone” in northern Syria, this time around terrorist-occupied Idlib. Far from any ‘humanitarian’ objectives, this latest ‘safe zone’ is a concerted move designed to provide terrorists a corridor by which to move supplies and weapons being trafficked into Syria from Turkey — which will only extend the length of the current 8 year-long war.

Shimmery Blue Tarantula Discovered

Sri Lanka is home to a new species of tarantula—and its females are fuzzy, turquoise-tinged, and big enough to comfortably hug a donut.

Scientists found the arachnids within an isolated patch of southwestern rainforest, ringed by tea and rubber plantations. Living in tubular, silk-lined burrows, they are fast and aggressive, seizing unlucky insects that wander too close to their underground lairs. Measuring roughly five inches from tip to tip, these spiders are not exactly small, nor are their brilliant blue patches particularly subtle.

Tammy Bruce: China Wants ‘Foothold in Greenland’ Next to ‘Our Ballistic Missile Defense System’

Donald Trump’s considered acquisition of Greenland is intended to block China’s efforts to “get a foothold” on the island, said Tammy Bruce.

“Critics of the president [are] projecting their own shallow point of view and their own ignorance onto him,” said Bruce. “They’re treating this as though it’s a headline from the Onion, or he wants a legacy as if he doesn’t already have one, or he wants to build a building there.”

Bruce continued, “For anyone that is actually looking at the geopolitics that have been going on since [Donald Trump] became president, China has been trying to get a foothold in Greenland. As a matter of fact, Greenland wanted some infrastructure spending for a couple of airports. They went to Denmark — they’re an autonomous territory of Denmark — and asked for the money, and Denmark said, ‘No.’“

Bruce explained, “So what did the Greenlandic leaders do? They went to Beijing, and they said to the Chinese, ‘Do you want to spend some money and help us build these airports?’ and China was like, ‘Oh, sure, as long as we have complete control over the building, and the management.’“

China’s attention to Greenland was examined in a column of Bruce’s in the Washington Times on Wednesday:

Scientists Surprised to Find New Species of Horseshoe Bats

There are way more species of horseshoe bats than scientists thought.

If you’ve never seen a horseshoe bat, you’re missing out. Their comically large ears are only rivaled for wackiest feature by their nose leaves, little flaps of skin that spread outward from their faces like petals. If you grew up with siblings who would say, “That’s you,” when they saw an ugly creature on TV, they’d have a field day with horseshoe bats.

But while they have faces only a biologist could love, horseshoe bats have caught the interest of scientists studying the bat family tree. There are more than 100 recognized species of horseshoe bats, and researchers now believe that number could be still higher. In a study published in BMC Evolutionary Biology, researchers from the Field Museum, National Museums of Kenya, and Maasai Mara University used gene sequencing to identify up to 12 new species of horseshoe bats. They also cast doubt on the validity of several recognized species.

Germany: Failed Asylum Seeker From Africa on Trial for the Rape of a 9-Year-Old Girl

“He said to her, ‘Beautiful baby, beautiful baby.’ When the injured party told him to leave her alone, he pushed her to the ground. He licked her face and threatened, ‘I kill you’, as she screamed and struggled,” the prosecutor explained.

Legner continued, saying, “The defendant then had intercourse with the child. With her 28 kilos, she had no chance against the adult who weighs 80 kilograms.”

Prosecuting attorneys noted that although Seydou N. had applied for asylum status in the country, his application had expired only a week after he committed the heinous act.

During the height of the migrant crisis in 2015, the number of illegal migrants who reached Greek soil numbered in the hundreds of thousands. Although the numbers decreased for some time, it looks like they’re quickly rising once more.

In 2016, Greece and Turkey reached an agreement which allowed Athens to return migrants to Turkey. The agreement was terminated in 2018, and since then the steady flow of migrants into Greece from the Middle East has continued.

Thanks to the unrelenting stream of migrants coming into the already impoverished southern EU-member state, local tourism and the already struggling economy have nearly ground to a complete halt.

Illegal Alien Caught Lying About ICE Separating Her From Breastfeeding Baby After CNN Pushed Her Fake Story

It isn’t an accident that CNN is considered fake news by most Americans. The low-ratings network that can be seen playing in every major airport, has a long history of distorting the truth to fit their far-left liberal narrative. When it comes to protecting and defending the flow of illegal aliens across our southern border, there isn’t a lie that’s too big for the leftist media.

Last week, CNN reported about an undocumented migrant mom (illegal alien) who was swept up in the Mississippi I.C.E. raids. It’s strange, that CNN never mentioned that the “migrant mom” was using a fake social security number. CNN’s report centered around the mother’s inability to breastfeed her infant after she was separated from her family and held in detention…

ICE said they conducted a medical exam after the claims got national attention and found that she was not lactating, an indication that she was likely not breastfeeding her child when arrested days earlier.

“All ICE detainees receive medical, dental and mental health intake screening within 12 hours of arriving at each detention facility; that screening includes a woman being asked if she is breast feeding. During her initial medical screening, Ms. Domingo-Garcia answered no to that question,” ICE said in a statement.

“Pursuant to subsequent media reports that falsely alleged Ms. Domingo-Garcia was being detained despite being a nursing mother, an ICE Health Services Corps nurse practitioner conducted an additional medical examination of Ms. Domingo-Garcia, which verified she is not lactating,” the statement added.

Report: Trump Preparing Executive Order to Let States Refuse Refugees

Would allow state and local jurisdictions to deny entry to refugees even if they have been approved for settlement by federal government

The White House is preparing an executive order that would allow state and local jurisdictions to deny entry to refugees even if they have been approved for settlement by the federal government, according to a draft of the policy obtained by NBC News.

The draft features language stating that “the federal government will resettle refugees only where both the relevant state and local governments have consented to participate.”

Under the order, the federal government would have to find another location for refugees if the jurisdiction in question does not agree to take them in. An exception would be made for the resettling of spouses or children of those already settled.

[Comment: The solution is to get the US out of the UN refugee resettlement program. It is the UN that defines what a “refugee” is and they intentionally lowered the bar so low that anyone from the third world is a refugee…it was the camel’s nose used to push mass migration.]

Return of the Migrant Crisis: Greece Cracking as Illegal Sea Crossings Triple

The number of illegal migrants landing in Greece, numbered in the hundreds of thousands at the height of the migrant crisis, is surging upwards once more.

While the massive inflow of illegal migrants to the impoverished European Union member-state, hundreds of thousands strong, was slowed — if never entirely stopped — by a multi-billion-euro deal between the EU and Turkey, tens of thousands have remained on its Aegean islands, destroying local tourism and burdening the already struggling country at large.

Now, however, with Greece’s aggressive neighbour having suspended both a bilateral agreement and an EU-level agreement on migrant readmissions, it appears that the floodgates are being gradually reopened, with The Times reporting that migrant landings have tripled in recent weeks.

Down Syndrome ‘Drag Show’ Created by LGBT Activist Coming to Michigan

A public art event in Grand Rapids, Michigan next month will feature men and women with Down syndrome performing as “drag queens” and “drag kings.”

A drag group known as “Drag Syndrome” is comprised of performers with Down syndrome, and is an LGBT activist’s attempt to promote so-called “inclusion.” Their performances feature song and dance by men wearing women’s dresses, garish makeup, wigs, and in some cases fake breasts. Women sport beards and men’s clothing.

A local TV channel, Wood TV, reports that “some people may be concerned because people with Down syndrome have limited mental capacity that they might not have the ability to decide to take part or understand what they are taking part in.”

The organizers of the show, however, are defending the event.

‘Garbage’: Critics Slam Ontario’s New Sex Ed for Promoting Homosexuality, Gender Theory, Masturbation

Pro-family groups blasted Ontario premier Doug Ford’s government Wednesday over a sex ed curriculum they say is a betrayal of parents and no better than the radical program Liberal premier Kathleen Wynne rolled out in 2015.

They also denounced the Tory government’s “opt-out” provision, much touted in the press, as “completely ineffective.”

After Ford’s landslide victory last June, his government scrapped Wynne’s 2015 sex ed curriculum and reverted to a 2010 version pending promised consultations with parents, although Lisa Thompson, his education minister at the time, said students had to learn gender identity theory.

But most media accounts agree the Grade 1 to 8 sex ed curriculum that education minister Stephen Lecce released online August 21 closely resembles the Liberal product Ford vowed during his election campaign to repeal.

The Ford sex ed curriculum “largely mirrors the previous Liberal government’s 2015 curriculum,” reported the Globe and Mail…

This comes as no surprise to Tanya Granic Allen, president of advocacy group Parents As First Educators (PAFE).

“Doug Ford lied,” Granic Allen stated in a Wednesday press release. “Exactly nothing of the Wynne sex-ed has been repealed.”

The Ford sex ed curriculum “will harm children just like the Wynne sex-ed: by excessively sexualizing them at young ages, and by continuing to teach the unscientific gender identity theory with which many parents disagree,” she said.

That’s also the view of Campaign Life Coalition, Canada’s national pro-life, pro-family political lobbying group and largest pro-life association.

“This curriculum is exactly the same garbage that Kathleen Wynne imposed on the unwilling parents of Ontario,” CLC national president Jeff Gunnarson said in a press release.

“The unscientific theories of gender identity and gender expression are still taught by Grade 7, or earlier if teachers want to,” he said.

“Homosexuality’s snuck into Grade 3 with a wink and a nudge via the teacher prompt on accepting people ‘regardless of who they love’, without any regard for the religious beliefs of many parents,” added Gunnarson.

And “masturbation is still promoted to children in Grade 6,” he said.

That’s a shock, as well as one disappointment of many, for Jack Fonseca, Campaign Life director of political operations.

“The easiest thing for [the Ford government] to do would be to remove the despised masturbation lesson in Grade 6,” he told LifeSiteNews.

Given the known connection between masturbation and pornography use, to promote the former is to endorse the latter, which is “tremendously harmful to children,” Fonseca said. “This is child abuse, in my view.”

Jesuit Superior General: The Devil is ‘Not a Person’, ‘Symbolic’

ROME — The superior general of the Jesuits declared this week that Satan is not a real person but a symbol of evil acting in the world, sparking a sharp rebuke from the world’s exorcists.

The devil “exists as the personification of evil in different structures but not in people, because he is not a person, but a manner of carrying out evil,” said Jesuit Father Arturo Sosa Abascal in an interview with Tempi.it published Wednesday.

San Francisco Fights Crime With Euphemisms: Convicted Felons Are Now ‘Justice-Involved Persons’

Politics is all about solving problems. For example, let’s say your city has a high rate of crime. As an elected official, you could take steps to lower the crime rate — put more police on the street, build more prisons, etc. — but that’s just a temporary measure. It won’t solve the problem. You’ll never get rid of it entirely. See, the problem isn’t crime, or criminals. The problem is “crime.” The problem is “criminals.” The very words themselves!

And now, the wokest city on Earth is doing something about it. Lukas Mikelionis, Fox News:

Crime-ridden San Francisco has introduced new sanitized language for criminals, getting rid of words such as “offender” and “addict” while changing “convicted felon” to “justice-involved person…”

Tucker Carlson on Liberal Fascists: “Those Who Control Your Words Control Your Mind” (Video)

On Thursday night Tucker Carlson opened his show on how the professional left has transformed the city of San Francisco, one of America’s most beautiful cities, into a “cesspool of filth, homelessness and drug addiction.” In response to this crisis the city of San Francisco is banning words that suggests the city has a crime problem, “I people are not allowed to talk about crime maybe they won’t notice crime exists. That’s the thinking.”

What Will They Learn at College?

What will my youngster learn in college?

The American Council of Trustees and Alumni provides some answers that turn out to be quite disturbing. ACTA evaluated every four-year public university as well as hundreds of private colleges and universities. That’s more than 1,100 institutions that enroll nearly 8 million students, more than two-thirds of all students enrolled in four-year liberal arts schools nationwide. ACTA’s findings were published in their report “What Will They Learn? 2018-19.” It doesn’t look good.

The ACTA assigned grades tell some of the story. Just 23 (2%) of the over 1,100 colleges earn an A grade; 343 colleges (31%) earn a B grade; 347 (31%) get a C grade; 273 (24%) earn a D; and 134 (12%) colleges earn an F. If you’re thinking that your youngster will get a truly liberal arts education, you are sadly mistaken. It turns out that less than half of the schools studied require courses in traditional literature, foreign language, U.S. government or history and economics. At some colleges, students can fulfill their humanities requirement with a course titled “Global X: Zombies!” A U.S. cultural pluralism requirement can be fulfilled with “The Economics of ‘Star Trek.’“ And an arts and Literature requirement can be fulfilled with either the “History of Comics” or “Game Design for Non-Majors.”

Colleges often do not live up to their own promises. In college mission statements, as well as their course catalogs, they frequently exalt the virtues of a “well-rounded” liberal arts education. The reality is something different with only 68% of the schools ACTA surveyed requiring three or fewer of the seven core subjects. Their curricula poorly represent critical subjects such as U.S. history, economics and foreign languages.

Yale Computer Scientist David Gelernter Abandons Darwinism

Renowned Yale computer scientist David Gelernter claims that he is abandoning Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution.

Gelernter, who formerly served as a fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, published a column earlier this year detailing his move away from evolutionary theory. The column, which was titled “Giving Up Darwin,” provides Gelernter’s arguments against Darwinism.

Darwin’s theory predicts that new life forms evolve gradually from old ones in a constantly branching, spreading tree of life. Those brave new Cambrian creatures must therefore have had Precambrian predecessors, similar but not quite as fancy and sophisticated. They could not have all blown out suddenly, like a bunch of geysers. Each must have had a closely related predecessor, which must have had its own predecessors: Darwinian evolution is gradual, step-by-step. All those predecessors must have come together, further back, into a series of branches leading down to the (long ago) trunk.

But those predecessors of the Cambrian creatures are missing. Darwin himself was disturbed by their absence from the fossil record. He believed they would turn up eventually. Some of his contemporaries (such as the eminent Harvard biologist Louis Agassiz) held that the fossil record was clear enough already, and showed that Darwin’s theory was wrong. Perhaps only a few sites had been searched for fossils, but they had been searched straight down. The Cambrian explosion had been unearthed, and beneath those Cambrian creatures their Precambrian predecessors should have been waiting—and weren’t. In fact, the fossil record as a whole lacked the upward-branching structure Darwin predicted.

    If you turn to Wikipedia, it says that the population of Shali is 50 thousand inhabitants. Why do they need such a mosque?
    And of course it was built at the expense of Russian taxpayers.

    ***** Mikail Yüksel ^*****

    Excluded from the Center Party for being a ‘Gray Wol’.

    “The established parties have failed the multicultural society.”

    “Now we start the party for the country’s suburbs”

    Says Mikail Yüksel, Chairman of the Board, Party Nyans (Hue [of red])

    “Sweden is a fantastic multicultural country, but unfortunately it is becoming increasingly fragmented. The basis for this split is the parties political differences and ideological disputes between all established parties.

    The individual’s everyday life is determined, shaped and regulated by these disputes. Concrete results play no role in designing new policies to address the country’s problems. The established parties are stubbornly insisting on sticking to ideologically limited measures and ignoring solutions that produce results, since they are considered to go against ideology.

    Ideologies and party politics now take precedence over land, logic, science and the future of fellow human beings. Growing populism with xenophobic rhetoric also makes all established parties approach each other with a copy paste policy from the xenophobic forces that are spreading in our society.

    Liberals are no longer liberals and socialists are not socialists. This bizarre reality can only be stopped by an innovative party that prioritizes the future of fellow human beings over ideologies and party politics.
    The new Nyans party wants to pursue a nuanced policy based on logic and science. Today, political positions and solutions are often presented in terms of being for or against something, while the arguments behind the positions are forgotten.

    We are convinced that everyone benefits from a more nuanced debate climate where they dare to discuss every single issue for what it is. Therefore, the Party Nyan’s takes distance from all established ideologies and wants instead to let logic and the proven experience go before populism and ideologically locked arguments.”

    “We have identified three urgent problems to prioritize and propose the following solutions.”

    ” Islamophobia and xenophobia
    According to statistics compiled by the Crime Prevention Council (BRÅ), hate crimes with Islamophobic motives have increased steadily since 2009. Sweden’s Muslims daily experience both physical and verbal attacks of a racist nature. Damage and property vandalism are just a few examples of this horrific phenomenon. Swedish Muslims enjoy the same freedoms and rights as any Swedish citizen. The Swedish state is ultimately responsible for their safety and security.

    Yet, few Islamophobic crimes are being solved and instead of political support, Muslims face absurd proposals such as criminalizing Muslim practices and culture. This is a daunting development that should be stopped immediately. Therefore, it is high time that Islamophobia gets its own crime classification and that Muslims get a minority position in the Constitution. Sweden is good at pointing out shortcomings regarding minority rights in other countries, but not as good at seeing its own shortcomings. The party Nyans (hue) wants to change that.
    We do not see Muslims and other minority groups as voting cattle whose door is knocked only in elections.”
    And so on…
    ————————————————-

    Sociodemocratic elite might ansver:

    -In Sweden, today there is more or
    less than 1 million Muslims.

    -We need votes.

    -You need grants
    and mosques.

    -At Nyans you will not receive any grants.
         
                      Allah come along and join.
