A new study ranks US states in order of psychopathy

Sometimes, it can feel like there are psychopaths everywhere. If you live in the United States, it’s now possible to move to less psychopathic environs, thanks to new research ranking 48 contiguous states by psychopathy.

Connecticut wins the dubious award of most psychopathic state in the US, followed by California in second, and New Jersey third. New York and Wyoming tie for joint fourth place, followed by Maine. The least psychopathic state is West Virginia, followed by Vermont, Tennessee, North Carolina, and New Mexico. The full list of psychopathic states is below:

EXCLUSIVE: Moms Of Children Killed By Illegal Aliens Slam Media For Hypocritical Coverage Of Border Separations

The “Angel Moms” of two American sons killed by illegal aliens told The Daily Caller how they felt about the media coverage of migrant parents separated from their children at the border.

The mothers told TheDC that there was huge hypocrisy in the mainstream media focusing on migrant parents instead of American parents who were permanently separated from their children after those children were killed by illegal aliens.

“There is hypocrisy in many ways. The total disregard for American families ripped apart because of illegal criminals, the total lack of concern for children in the U.S. being raped in North Carolina by illegals at disgusting numbers (some months over 400 child rapes by illegals), no concern [for] homeless American children or Veterans who would do anything to have what’s provided [to] these children. Yet, our politicians call it inhumane treatment. Would they rather these kids coming across our borders stay with the adults who aren’ttheir biological parents but have kidnapped them to get across the border as a ‘family unit?'” Mary Ann Mendoza told TheDC.

Mendoza’s story is absolutely heartbreaking.

Infowars Right Again: War Inside FBI Triggered Reopening of Clinton Email Probe

IG Report confirms patriot agent concerned McCabe delayed probe into Anthony Weiner’s laptop

The Inspector General’s report reveals that the FBI reopened Hillary Clinton’s email probe due to pressure from a case agent concerned over private Clinton emails found on Anthony Weiner’s laptop, confirming Infowars reports from October 2016.

The report explains how a patriot FBI agent was dumbfounded over the fact that top FBI leadership had taken no action in almost a month over the discovery of a batch of emails found on Weiner’s laptop.

“The crickets I was hearing was really making me uncomfortable because something was going to come crashing down…. And my understanding, which is uninformed because…I didn’t work the Hillary Clinton matter,” the agent said in page 302 of the report.

Dems Exploit Children of Illegals for Political Fodder

Appealing to emotions with false assertions, Democrats and their propaganda mouthpieces in the mainstream media have manufactured a campaign issue they seek to ride all the way to the November elections. As President Donald Trump has cracked down on illegal immigration, Democrats are shouting about his zero-tolerance law-enforcement policy that sometimes separates children from parents who illegally cross the U.S. border. As Democrats have increasingly run to the fainting couches, some have even ridiculously compared Trump’s law enforcement to that of Nazi Germany. It’s a classic case of uninformed emotions leading to calls for changing a policy few even care to understand.

First and foremost, the Trump administration has not changed any rules that govern the nation’s immigration and border enforcement. As Rich Lowry of National Review explains, “Separation happens only if officials find that the adult is falsely claiming to be the child’s parent, or is a threat to the child, or is put into criminal proceedings.”

NY TIMES SMEARS TRUMP OVER MIGRANT LINK TO CRIME IN GERMANY, BUT HE’S RIGHT

VIOLENT crime is up, and 90% of it is due to migrants

The media is demonizing Donald Trump over a tweet in which he blamed migrants for the rise of crime in Germany by claiming he’s lying, but Trump is largely correct.

“The people of Germany are turning against their leadership as migration is rocking the already tenuous Berlin coalition. Crime in Germany is way up. Big mistake made all over Europe in allowing millions of people in who have so strongly and violently changed their culture!” tweeted Trump.

Honestly, Is The Salisbury Festival Prepared...

TRENTON — Krystal Knapp was 15 minutes from the end of her shift as a volunteer at the entrance to the Art All Night festival in Trenton when she heard some scuffling.

Peering into the long and narrow former factory building where the festival was being held, she saw paintings being knocked to the floor. She heard screams and gunshots as people hurtled toward the exit and she was pushed to the ground and trampled.

Ms. Knapp sought shelter behind a car. Then, 15 feet away, one of the gunmen was shot and killed.

The authorities said the shooting appeared to be gang-related and that 22 people were injured; 17 were shot and the others hurt by being trampled. It happened just before 3 a.m. Sunday at a 24-hour art festival cherished by Trenton residents as a testament to the New Jersey capital’s artistic revitalization.

Tensions were rising shortly before the event descended into violent chaos.

“There was a report that the mood inside the venue had been changing,”

Publishers Notes: What Jake Day is bringing to Salisbury is no joking matter. You can't just act like a little kid and throw a big adult party and not be prepared. I know for a fact that Jake is not willing to pay for security, certainly not to a level of hundreds of thousands of people showing up. My guess, responsible parents and adults will stay far away from what some might think is a disaster just waiting to happen. After all, we are talking about Salisbury, Maryland. 

This driver was going too slow in the left lane. So this officer pulled her over

An Indiana State Police officer is going viral on social media after posting that he had pulled over a woman for going too slow in the left lane.

"Again...if there are vehicles behind you, you must move to the right lane to allow them to pass," Wheeles tweeted.

Obama’s Immigration Agencies Separated Children From Their Families, Too

The Trump administration has an intentional and explicit policy of separating migrant children from their families if caught crossing the U.S.-Mexico border without permission. Long before that, however, the administration of Barack Obama ramped up a program with a sometimes similar effect.

Since 2008, the United States has had a policy known as the Alien Transfer Exit Program (ATEP), or Lateral Repatriation. This program focuses on detaining male migrants of Mexican descent.

Here’s how it works: Once an immigrant is caught attempting to cross the border without documentation, they are detained, flown or bused across the United States and then shown the exit at another segment of the U.S.-Mexico border–thousands of miles from their original point of entry.

Police: Black woman declares 'I hate white people' before attacking Ride On bus passengers

GAITHERSBURG, Md. (ABC7) — A black woman declared her disdain for "white people" before pummeling two white passengers on board a moving Ride On bus, Gaithersburg Police said.

Kimberly Jordan, 24, of Silver Spring, is charged with racial harassment, obstructing and second-degree assault due to her alleged offensive and physically painful antics.

It was 9 p.m. on a Monday. The Ride On bus was operating a route near the intersection of Frederick Avenue and Travis Avenue, just north of the Lakeforest Mall.

Jordan allegedly began to stare at two white passengers and then murmured, "I hate white people." A short while later, Jordan, who weighs 250 pounds, reportedly stood up and clocked the female white passenger in the face. The male white passenger attempted to defend his friend, but got smacked in the face as well, police state.

The male victim suffered a "long" cut to this nose while the female victim had a number of scratches on her palms, likely defensive wounds.

WHY WEREN’T LIBERALS FURIOUS ABOUT THESE PHOTOS OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT DETENTIONS UNDER OBAMA?

Much of the media coverage over the last few weeks has focused on the policy of separating illegal immigrant children from their parents on the US border.

The Trump administration has come under fire for enforcing the policy, which calls for criminal prosecution of would-be immigrants who cross the border illegally, therefore separating them from their children.

The outrage has struck some reporters as peculiar, particularly since there was abject silence and a lack of outrage when the Obama administration treated illegal immigrants in a similar fashion.

Barack Obama deported more people than any president in history and reached a record number — 97,000 — of criminal prosecutions in 2013 for illegal border crossings. Breitbart Texas reporter Brandon Darby toured detention facilities under the Obama administration.

Comey refuses to testify to Congress, Grassley says McCabe pleads Fifth Amendment

Fired FBI Director James Comey refused to appear before Congress on Monday to talk about his handling of the Clinton email investigation, and his fired deputy, Andrew McCabe, asserted his Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination, Sen. Charles E. Grassley said.

Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch also declined to show up for a major hearing where the Senate Judiciary Committee was looking into the inspector general’s report detailing major bungles in Mr. Comey’s handling of the Clinton investigation.

Mr. Comey’s lawyer said he was out of the country — though Mr. Grassley, committee chairman, said he saw Mr. Comey was in Iowa over the weekend, visiting a key state in presidential campaigning.

“He has time for book tours and television interview, but apparently no time to assist this committee,” Mr. Grassley, an Iowa Republican, said.

DUI Conviction Rate

OCEAN CITY - On June 18, 2018, State’s Attorney’s Offices from every county in Maryland came together at the Clarion Hotel for the annual Maryland State’s Attorney’s Conference. In the presence of Governor Hogan, Worcester County was honored for having the highest DUI conviction rate in Maryland. Of the prior six years on record, five have been awarded to the Worcester County State’s Attorney’s Office. Furthermore, Worcester County exceeded the statewide average of 78% by achieving a 91.1% successful DUI conviction rate. 

“This is an incredible achievement for Worcester County,” Interim State’s Attorney Bill McDermott stated. “This award is a reflection of the diligent efforts of not only our devoted attorneys, but also the law enforcement involved in each one of these cases. Our officers tirelessly patrol the streets of this county and are thorough in their reports, which in turn provide our prosecutors with the tools they need to successfully convict drunk drivers.” 

He continued saying, “Earning the award for the highest DUI conviction rate not only this year but five out of the last six years is a testament to how seriously our office and law enforcement take the protection and security of our county. This award is not only an accomplishment for our office and law enforcement, it’s a win for Worcester County.” 

Interim State’s Attorney McDermott then offered his sincere congratulations to the district court prosecutors who handle the majority of DUI cases, as well as every law enforcement agency in Worcester County.

Prekindergarten Expansion Grants Awarded To Wicomico County

MSDE Awards $ 26.5 Million in Funds to Grow PreK Education

BALTIMORE (June 18, 2018) – The Maryland State Department of Education’s Division of Early Childhood has awarded 53 grants to serve four-year-olds in high-quality prekindergarten classrooms in Maryland.

Each of the State’s 19 school systems that applied have been funded for one or more additional PreK classrooms. In addition, community-based and Head Start programs in 12 jurisdictions have been funded. The approximately $26 million in grant awards will provide four-year-old children from low-income families access to full-day prekindergarten in school year 2018-2019.

“Early learning programs are critically important to the development of our youth, and provide a foundation of educational support for children from economically disadvantaged households,” said Governor Larry Hogan. “These grants are a much-needed investment that will directly impact the next generation of Marylanders.”

Systems receiving funds are:

Allegany County - $73,440
Baltimore City - $1,175,040
Baltimore County - $660,960
Carroll County - $146,880
Caroline County - $1,332,936
Charles County - $119,880
Dorchester - $844,560
Frederick County - $293,760
Garrett County - $146,880
Harford County - $859,248
Montgomery County - $1,175,040
Prince Georges County - $1,957,176
Queen Anne's County - $440,640
Somerset County - $220,320
St. Mary's County - $293,760
Talbot County - $271,728
Washington County - $1,248,480
Wicomico County - $1,674,747

For the past three years these funds have allowed school systems and early childhood programs to increase the length of the day from a half day to a full day, fund highly qualified and certified Early Childhood teachers in each classroom, and serve more vulnerable children who otherwise would not have access to the early education they need for success in school. Maryland’s statewide plan expands high-quality prekindergarten, provides intensive technical assistance, and ensures comprehensive services are accessible in many high-need communities.

These grants have been awarded since 2015 using funds provided to Maryland through the federal Preschool Development Grant – Expansion Grant program and matching state funds made possible through the passage of the Prekindergarten Expansion Act of 2014 (Senate Bill 332). 

A total of $88,216,000 will have been provided through this program over the four years of the grant.

Gallup: Satisfaction with direction of country highest since 2005

Satisfaction with the direction the country is going is higher today than it's been since 2005, according to the most recent Gallup survey.

Thirty-eight percent of Americans are satisfied with the way things are going in the United States today, similar to last month's 37% satisfaction rate but marking the numerical high since a 39% reading in September 2005.

The satisfaction rate, which Gallup has measured at least monthly since 2001, has now topped 35% three times this year – a level reached only three times in the previous 12 years (once each in 2006, 2009 and 2016).

Satisfaction with the nation is now back to the historical average of 37% for this trend, which was first measured in 1979, but is far below the majority levels reached in the economic boom times of the mid-1980s and late 1990s.

Not surprisingly, Republicans are more ebullient about the direction of the country compared to Democrats. But it is striking that the largest increase in satisfaction occurred in rural America compared to big cities and small towns.

Higher vitamin D levels cut colorectal cancer risk by 31%, major international study finds

Higher vitamin D levels significantly drive down colorectal cancer risk, a large new international study has found.

The vitamin, found in fatty fish and sunshine, was found to strengthen resistance to stomach tumors by blocking a common gateway that cancer cells pass through - and it was most protective in women.

The report, led by the Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health, adds weight to a long-suspected theory which, until now, had not been proven.

It also suggested the ideal amount of vitamin D we should be aiming for may be higher than current guidelines suggest.

This study is yet another reminder to prioritize loading up on vitamin D, since around three quarters of Americans and a fifth of Brits are deficient - but while the vitamin is hard to find in natural foods, experts warn to scrutinize supplements that may not have been tested rigorously.

Poll: 60% of Liberals Say Teen Sex is ‘Morally Acceptable'

The lastest results in Gallup's annual "Values and Beliefs"survey show that 60% of liberals believe teenagers having sex is "morally acceptable" while only 26% of conservatives say it is morally acceptable.

For the converse, 70% of conservatives say teen sex is "morally wrong" but only 37% of liberals say the same.

In the survey, Gallup asked, "I'm going to read you a list of issues. Regardless of whether or not you think it should be legal, for each one, please tell me whether you personally believe that in general it is morally acceptable or morally wrong. How about -- sex between teenagers?"

From the 1,024 adults surveyed, 54% said teen sex was "morally wrong" but 42% said it was "morally acceptable."

For the latter percentage, 42%, that's up 6 points from 36% in 2017, and it is up 10 points from when Gallup started asking the question in 2013.

IG: Some at FBI Suspected ‘Political Bias’ in Obama’s Public Exoneration of Hillary

President Barack Obama’s public comments about Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server – while the FBI was still investigating it -- raised “a suspicion” among some at the FBI that “there was a political bias...going on from the Executive Branch,” as one official told the Justice-Department inspector-general.

Several FBI officials told the inspector general they were concerned about "the potential impact on the investigation" after Obama told CBS's "60 Minutes" that Hillary made a "mistake" but she did not endanger national security. (See transcript of Obama's comments on CBS below.)

According to the report:

Former EAD [Executive Assistant Director] John Giacalone told the OIG, “[W]e open up criminal investigations. And you have the President of the United States saying this is just a mistake.... That’s a problem, right?”

Former AD [Assistant Director] Randy Coleman expressed the same concern, stating, “[The FBI had] a group of guys in here, professionals, that are conducting an investigation. And the...President of the United States just came out and said there’s no there there.” Coleman said that he would have expected someone in FBI or Department leadership to contact one of Obama’s national security officials, and “tell [him or her], hey knock it off.”

Michael Steinbach, the former EAD for the National Security Branch, told the OIG that the comments generated “controversy” within the FBI. Steinbach stated, “[Y]ou’re prejudging the results of an investigation before they really even have been started.... That’s...hugely problematic for us.”

Kathy Griffin Tweets Profanities at First Lady

Comedian Kathy Griffin tweeted out a profanity-laden criticism of first lady Melania Trump after she released a statement calling for a bipartisan effort for immigration reform so that children of illegal immigrants would not have to be separated from their families anymore when they crossed the U.S. border, the Washington Examiner reported on Sunday.

In the tweet, Griffin said "F--- you, Melanie. You know damn well your husband can end this immediately... you feckless complicit piece of s---."

Griffin's deliberate misspelling of the first lady’s first name was alluding to a May tweet from Trump in which he spelled his wife's name that way, while the use of "feckless" was apparently a reference to Samantha Bee's criticism of Ivanka Trump as a "feckless c---" on her show in May, according to Fox News.

To Combat Potholes, Cities Turn to Technology

They are a torment for motorists and a costly headache for transportation departments. Every winter and spring, potholes plague city streets and rural roads, causing drivers to curse and public works officials to shudder.

That’s why some local governments are turning to data and technology to find and fix potholes. Some are even trying to predict where they’ll open up.

In a growing number of cities, including Omaha, Nebraska; Hartford, Connecticut; and San Diego, residents can download an app for reporting potholes. In Houston, residents can check out the Pothole Tracker app or log on to a website and see graphics and chartsshowing the city’s progress in fixing them.

On 6-18-18 at 1552 hrs, Troopers from the Maryland State Police
Princess Anne Barrack, responded to a motor vehicle collision located at N/B Rt. 13 and Peach Orchard Rd, Somerset County, MD.

Upon Troopers arrival they located a single vehicle, box-truck that

The driver will be transported to the Medical Examiner’s office for autopsy. The identity of the driver is not being released at this time. Due to several large trees being uprooted, north and southbound lanes of Rt. 13 had to be closed an extended time for tree removal.

Maryland State Police Crash Team and Commercial Vehicle Enforcement personnel responded to the scene to assist with the investigation. The crash investigation is ongoing.

U.S. Disaster Zones: Are You Living In A Place Where Disasters Are Common?"

With constant media bombardment of fears of a nuclear war, many have begun to prepare for a disaster. But government uncertainty isn’t the only thing on the minds of the masses. Volcanic activity appears to be increasing and earthquakes seem to be getting more severe.

That begs the question: do you live in a disaster zone?

In just the past 16 years, parts of Louisiana have been struck by six hurricanes. Areas near San Diego were devastated by three particularly vicious wildfire seasons. And a town in eastern Kentucky has been pummeled by at least nine storms severe enough to warrant federal assistance. These are obvious red flag areas, but what about the rest of the country?

The New York Times has put together a map showing which areas in the United States were subjected to the most disasters which caused monetary losses by ZIP code between 2002 – 2017.

"Terrified" San Francisco Tourists Shocked By Aggressive Vagrants, Discarded Needles, Dead Bodies

Syringes were visible, people were staggering, others had wide aggressive eyes.

San Francisco - a Democratic stronghold known for cable cars, quaint architecture and its diverse culture, has become a bastion of squalor and crime as city dwellers and visitors alike dodge aggressive, drug-addled vagrants. And it's beginning to scare the tourists...

An Australian couple visiting the city were shocked by what they saw after deciding to walk back to their hotel:

"Is this normal or am I in a 'bad part of town?' Just walked past numerous homeless off their faces, screaming and running all over the sidewalk near Twitter HQ and then a murder scene. Wife is scared to leave hotel now," reads a Wednesday posting by Reddit user /u/nashtendo.

"A Hard Rain's a-Gonna Fall"

As the Federal Reserve kicked off its second round of quantitative easing in the aftermath of the Great Financial Crisis, hedge fund manager David Tepper predicted that nearly all assets would rise tremendously in response.

"The Fed just announced we want economic growth, and we don't care if there's inflation... have they ever said that before?"

He then famously uttered the line "You gotta love a put", referring to the Fed's declared willingness to print $trillions to backstop the economy and financial makets.

Nine years later we see that Tepper was right, likely even more so than he realized at the time.

The other world central banks followed the Fed's lead. Mario Draghi of the ECB declared a similar "whatever it takes" policy and has printed nearly $3.5 trillion in just the past three years alone. The Bank of Japan has intervened so much that it now owns over 40% of its country's entire bond market. And no central bank has printed more than the People's Bank of China.

It has been an unprecedented forcefeeding of stimulus into the global system. And, contrary to what most people realize, it hasn't diminished over the years since the Great Recession. In fact, the most recent wave from 2015-2018 has seen the highest amount of injected 'thin-air' money ever:

'Democrats are good at only three things, High Taxes, High Crime and Obstruction!' Trump doubles down on blaming Dems for forced separation of immigrant families on the border

President Donald Trump has doubled down on his insistence that Democrats are to blame for the separation of families at the border, saying his administration is merely following the rules established by the Obama administration.

'Democrats can fix their forced family breakup at the Border by working with Republicans on new legislation, for a change! This is why we need more Republicans elected in November,' Trump tweeted on Saturday.

'Democrats are good at only three things, High Taxes, High Crime and Obstruction. Sad!' he continued.

From April 19 to May 31, 1,995 children were separated from 1,940 adults who tried to enter the US illegally between official border crossings, according to Homeland Security statistics.

Affordability Crisis: Low-Income Workers Can't Afford A 2-Bedroom Rental Anywhere In America

The National Low Income Housing Coalition’s (NLIHC) annual report, Out of Reach, reveals the striking gap between wages and the price of housing across the United States. The report’s ‘Housing Wage’ is an estimate of what a full-time worker on a state by state basis must make to afford a one or two-bedroom rental home at the Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) fair market rent without exceeding 30 percent of income on housing expenses.

With decades of declining wages and widening wealth inequality via the financialization of corporate America, and thanks to the Federal Reserve's disastrous policies (whose direct outcome is the ascent of Trump), the recent insignificant countertrend in wage growth for low-income workers has not been enough to boost their standard of living.

The report finds that a full-time minimum wage worker, or the average American stuck in the gig economy, cannot afford to rent a two-bedroom apartment anywhere in the U.S.

Trey Gowdy: GOP will hit DOJ, FBI with ‘full arsenal’ to get documents

House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy said that House Speaker Paul Ryan led a meeting with senior Justice Department and FBI officials Friday, and claimed he “made it very clear” the House will use “its full arsenal of constitutional weapons to gain compliance” on outstanding subpoenas.

Gowdy, R-S.C., said on “Fox News Sunday” that Republican lawmakers’ actions could involve "the full panoply of constitutional weapons available to the people’s house."

However, it was not immediately clear which subpoenas or requests Gowdy was referencing.

In March, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte subpoenaed the Justice Department to obtain documents related to the FBI’s investigation of Hillary Clinton’s email server, potential surveillance abuses, and the decision to fire former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.

The request totals roughly 1.2 million documents.

However, that subpoena is already being handled: FBI Director Christopher Wray announced in late March that he was assigning 54 FBI staffers to oversee the request, and Attorney General Jeff Sessions then tapped the U.S. attorney in Chicago, John Lausch, in April to oversee the production of troves of documents to Goodlatte.

Second FBI Informant Tried To Entrap Trump Campaign With $2 Million Offer For Hillary Dirt: Roger Stone

These European Countries Are Refusing To Accept The Unchecked Influx Of Migrants

Much has been written about the unchecked influx of migrants into Europe recently. As the EU promotes the warm, fuzzy, “inclusive” policies that are overwhelming countries with immigrants, some of those countries are bluntly starting to say, “no more.” At the same time, other countries seem to be quietly preparing for…something… without being quite so forthcoming about the event for which they are readying themselves.

Millions of refugees and asylum seekers, primarily from Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, Nigeria, Pakistan, and Somalia are flowing into Europe, largely unchecked. This is because of a welcoming “open door” policy promoted by German Chancellor Angela Merkel back in 2015. Despite the backlash from Europeans,Merkel says she has “no regrets.”

But some overwhelmed countries have decided that enough is enough. They cite the refugees’ refusal to assimilate, increasing crime statistics (particularly against women), and no-go zones in which the migrants have banded together and created areas in which Europeans are not welcome.

The European Union is so displeased about this that they’ve taken 3 of their member countries to court for refusing to “share the burden of hosting migrants.”

I don’t have a crystal ball, but I wonder if we could see this disagreement becoming a catalyst for the dissolution of the European Union.

Is The Federal Reserve 'Public Enemy Number One'?

When currency was backed by gold, a central bank’s main function was to maintain the value of the issued currency in terms of gold. For example, if a central bank created too much money against the gold reserves in the banking system, an increasing number of people would begin to exchange their currency for gold. To combat this, a central bank would be forced to raise interest rates and decrease the money supply. The higher interest rates would incentivize people to exchange gold for larger savings on deposit that earn interest. Banking reserves – gold – would return to the banking system and the economy would return to balance. The prime reason for insisting on defining currency in terms of a precious metal was to provide a self-correcting braking mechanism to the creation of money. As expressed by the great Wilhelm Röpke:

If in the production of goods the most important pedal is the accelerator, in the production of money it is the brake. To insure that this brake works automatically and independently of the whims of government and the pressure of parties and groups seeking “easy money” has been one of the main functions of the gold standard. That the liberal should prefer the automatic brake of gold to the whims of government in its role of trustee of a managed currency is understandable.”

The US dollar was backed by gold as recently as 1971. Any central bank in the world could present the Federal Reserve $35 and receive 1-ounce of gold in exchange. However, on August 15, 1971 – blaming it on the “gnomes of Zurich” – President Nixon “temporarily” broke the dollar’s last link with gold. Nixon closed the “gold window” and reneged on the promise to exchange an ounce of gold for $35. Since then, the system of credit in the US has been under the Fed’s complete control.

On Father’s Day Danney Williams Calls on Bill Clinton to Take Paternity Test

Today is a happy day for most fathers and sons.
But not for Danney Williams.
Danney claims he is Bill Clinton’s illegitimate son.

The 27-year-old black man from Arkansas put new pressure on the former President and his wife Hillary.

Danney’s mother, a prostitute who lived in Arkansas in the mid-1980s, claimed she had sex with the the Arkansas governor at the time.

In her interview, Bobbie said that Clinton rubbed her belly and said, “Girl, that can’t be my baby.” But I knew it was. I just had this kind of woman’s feeling that this was his child”.

The liberal media ignored or attacked Danney Williams during the election.

Breaking: Comey Under DOJ Investigation Over Mishandling Classified Info; Grassley Demands Info On Use Of Personal Email

DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz made a stunning admission during Monday Congressional Testimony that former FBI Director James Comey is under a separate and ongoing investigation over mishandling of classified information - when asked by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) about

Grassley: “Comey said he did not expect a report on his handling of classified information because, “That’s frivolous.” I don’t happen to think that it is frivolous. Question number one, Mr. Horowitz, are you investigating the handling of his memo and does that include the classification issues, and should Mr. Comey expect a report when it’s complete?”

Horowitz: “We received a referral on that from the FBI,” We are handling that referral and we will issue a report when the matter is complete, consistent with the law and rules that are–a report that’s consistent and takes those into account.”

The 5 Weirdest Things About Being a Conservative Who Doesn’t Love Trump

Donald Trump was not my cup of tea in the Republican primaries. Well, maybe he was my cup of tea, if the tea was bitter and poisoned. Suffice it to say, although I started out as a Trump fan, I was not rooting for him to win the GOP nomination. Although I could never vote for Hillary Clinton, I did not support Trump either. I wrote in Ted Cruz’s name, which I thought was essentially irrelevant because there was no chance Trump could win.

I don’t feel bad about not believing Trump could win because let’s face it, even a lot of “true believers” were starting to give excuses about whom they’d blame when he lost. In fact, if you believe Michael Wolff’s Fire and Fury (and I do in this case), even the Trump campaign thought it was going down to defeat. Since then, things have gotten a little weird for a number of reasons….
1. Trump has been a much better conservative president than I thought he would be

Maybe Trump is just jumping over a low bar because after listening to some of the crazier answers he gave during the primary season, I wouldn’t have put the chances of him nuking Norway at zero. On the other hand, maybe we don’t ask enough out of our Republican politicians because I am pretty sure that if you just focus on what he’s done and not what he says, Trump’s performance in office has been orders of magnitude better than Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio or John Kasich could have ever delivered. He’s cut regulations, pushed through tax cuts, smashed ISIS, recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, helped get the NFL back on the right path, delivered brutal beatings to the liberal press, got a lot of judges confirmed, the economy is killing it – it just goes on and on. Even Trump’s harshest critics on the Right would be talking about him as another Reagan if he were capable of controlling the words that come out of his mouth or the tweets he makes. Of course, if fire were wet, it would be water.

2. I’m really surprised the Democrats haven’t made an effort to bring any of the people who didn’t vote for Hillary back into the fold

Iranian Feminist Says Western Feminists Make Things Worse for Her Cause at Home

Noted Iranian feminist Masih Alinejad wants her feminist counterparts in the West to stop what they think is being helpful or respectful.

Speaking Wednesday at a "Power Women Breakfast" sponsored by entertainment site The Wrap, Alinejad said, "I keep hearing in the West especially, Western feminists who go to my country — the female politicians — we don’t want to break the country’s law," which they use as an excuse to adopt the dress code forced on women by the country's Islamic regime.

Alinejad explained that the women of Iran "don’t want to be slaves," and "told by men or the law of the Islamic Republic of Iran what to wear."

She insists that -- as many Westerners suggest -- this isn't a "cultural issue" because "before the revolution we had the right to choose what we wanted to wear in Iran. Compulsion was never part of Iranian culture."

The recap post also says that Alinejad told the audience it was a "mistake" that "some Western feminists resisted legitimate criticism of the regime out of a desire not to appear in line with the policies of President Donald Trump."

ansas city bills parents $132,000 after child damages glass sculpture

A city in Kansas is reportedly demanding $132,000 from the parents of a 5-year-old boy who knocked over a glass sculpture.

The piece of art, “Aphrodite di Kansas City,” was on display at an Overland Park community center when the boy damaged it on May 19, the Kansas City Star reported. He was attending a wedding reception with his parents at the time.

“He probably hugged it,” the boy’s mother Sarah Goodman told the paper. “Maybe my son hugged a torso because he’s a loving, sweet nice boy who just graduated from preschool.”

Case against Chinese restaurant owner sheds light on how Hispanic illegal immigrants find work

A federal case against a Chinese restaurant owner in Kentucky is shedding light on how Hispanic immigrants work in the country illegally, including what an investigator says are phone numbers for those immigrants to find work at Chinese restaurants nationwide.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports that the owner of Asian Buffet in Shelbyville, 49-year-old Fei Zhou Tang, was charged with harboring people in the country illegally in a criminal complaint Thursday in Lexington federal court.

In an affidavit, U.S. State Department investigator Tracey Lunsford said one Hispanic immigrant whom she interviewed told her there used to be offices in Texas and Chicago for job referrals, but they switched to phones only after police raids. The Hispanic man, Salvador Salazar Gomez, said there “many phone numbers to call,” Lunsford wrote in the affidavit.

The affidavit says Tang housed immigrants in the country illegally in the other side of his duplex, and drove them to and from work. Tang has lawful permanent resident status.

When police searched Tang’s restaurant, employee Beth Tillman told officers that Hispanic immigrants used the number to find work and were charged about $700 to get a job, according to the affidavit.

Forward Mark Unread More Delete Spam Message View Subject: FBI, DOJ will feel 'full arsenal of constitutional weapons' if they don't comply with subpoena

House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy told "Fox News Sunday" that House Speaker Paul Ryan led a meeting Friday night with senior members of the DOJ and FBI, and made it clear that “there’s going to be action on the floor of the House this week if FBI and DOJ do not comply with our subpoena request.”

The House Judiciary Committee has requested more than a million
documents from the FBI and DOJ relating to the Hillary Clinton email probe, the firing of former top FBI official Andrew McCabe, and reported surveillance of a Trump aide during the 2016 presidential election.

But Republicans have accused the DOJ and FBI of stonewalling and
intentionally impeding their investigation, despite the agencies' claims
that fulfilling the request requires a careful review of the sensitive
documents.

Gowdy, R-S.C., said the GOP's action could involve "the full panoply of constitutional weapons available to the people’s house."

"I don’t want the drama; I want the documents."

Child Border Crossers Have Higher Standard of Living than 13M Impoverished American Children

Migrant children who cross into the United States either alone or with adults have a higher standard of living once they are put into federal care than the more than 13 million American children who are living in poverty across the country.

In Fiscal Year 2017, the federal government referred nearly 41,000 unaccompanied minor border crossers to the Unaccompanied Alien Children program which is facilitated by the Office of Refugee Resettlement.

Data provided to Breitbart News reveals that each unaccompanied minor costs the federal government about $34,660 annually. This is a higher standard of living per child than the roughly 13 million American children who continue to live below the U.S. poverty line.

Those comfortable living conditions include lodging, meals, clothing, medical care, education, recreation, counseling, among other services.

Nunes: There Will Be ‘Hell to Pay’ if DOJ, FBI Refuse to Turn Over Documents

On this weekend’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “Sunday Morning Futures,” House Intel Committee chairman Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) said if the Department of Justice and FBI did not turn over documents related to the Russian investigation he has requested, there would be “hell to pay.”

Nunes said, “The deadline is this week. If documents do not begin to be turned over tomorrow and a clear way and path forward for everything else is not clear here in the next couple days, there’s going to be hell to pay by Wednesday morning because we can no longer — it’s not just about the committee chairman any longer. This is about rank and file members of Congress who continue to come up to me and say ‘what are you guys doing?'”

The crazy reason the FBI didn't search the devices of Hillary Clinton's inner circle

While the FBI was investigating Hillary Clinton's secret server where she kept official emails out of the view of the authorities until her lawyers could scrub them, for some reason, agents never searched the Blackberries or other email devices belonging to her inner circle at the State Department.

Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz and his team received a crazy response when they asked FBI agents on the Hillary Clinton email investigation why not.

The agents' primary excuse was to point to "the culture of mishandling classified information at the State Department which made the quantity of potential sources of evidence particularly vast" (see page 153).

Put another way, the agents thought that they might find so much classified information on unauthorized servers and systems that they would become lost in the maze. Horowitz, in what can only be described as a generous admonition, counters by noting "that [this excuse] fails to acknowledge that the team was not required to take an all-or-nothing approach. For example, a middle ground existed where those devices belonging to Clinton’s three top aides - which the team determined accounted for approximately 68 percent of Clinton’s email exchanges - would have been reviewed, but devices belonging to other State Department employees would not."

This suggestion by Horowitz seems rather, well, obvious.

Md. Sen. Chris Van Hollen visits Mexican border on Father's Day

He is investigating the Trump Administration's policy of separating children from their families at the Mexican border.

“Everything that I saw today confirmed my worst fears,” Maryland Senator Chris Van Hollen told WUSA 9 via FaceTime Sunday evening.

Instead of spending this Father’s Day with his own children, Van Hollen was one of eight lawmakers to tour a processing center in McAllen, Texas. He also visited a site near Brownsville, TX and tells WUSA 9 he spoke with an emotional mother currently separated from her child.

Why Van Hollen?

The Maryland Senator told WUSA 9 he had enough and wanted to investigate this policy of separating children for himself. Cameras were not allowed inside the facilities he toured, so he describes it for us.

“In that center, you had people sort-of huddled in these very large pens with chain-linked fence, including a lot of kids, masses of kids huddled together,” he said. The Senator says this facility had over 100 separated kids inside.

Van Hollen tells WUSA9 what he saw is the result of the Trump Administration’s “Zero Tolerance Policy.”

It’s a practice put in place last month to deter illegal border crossings.

The Administration is now criminally prosecuting the people caught crossing the border illegally, which means detention for the adults until they get a trial.

The result: separations.

UPDATE: It turns out two black males were apprehended at the scene brandishing pistol BB-guns. The school was in lockdown and from what I understand the Teachers were scared to death. I mean, WHO in their right mind today would actually go on school grounds and do such a thing. Complete Idiots! 

Fake or real, (guns) two men are at the Prince Street Elementary School Playground where several Sheriff's Deputies are currently on the scene. Thank God the kids are out of school but the Teachers are there.

A Father's Day problem in the working class

The plight of inner-city blacks that Patrick Moynihan chronicled in his 1965 paper The Negro Family is now the plight of middle-America working-class whites. The typical child born to white parents without a college degree is growing up without the benefit of married parents at home.

You could say there’s a fatherhood crisis in Trump Country.

Marriage is declining fast in the U.S. Only half of adults are married. It was about three-fourths a generation ago.

You might go along with theexplanation from the wonks at Vox.com, who say “the ‘decline’ of marriage isn’t a problem,” but is, rather, “a consequence of something good.” The argument for this is that women have been liberated by greater economic equality with men, and so now, they’re not forced to hitch their fortunes to a man.

But the data don't support this explanation. The retreat from marriage isn’t Wesleyan-educated feminists refusing to tie themselves to a patriarchal institution, or enlightened elites eschewing a tired tradition. The collapse of marriage is mostly among those with no college degrees who don't have great financial prospects.

Liberals Need To Stop BS-ing Everyone

FBI agents called Martin O'Malley a 'douche,' disparaged other politicians: IG report

Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, two FBI agents who exchanged texts mocking President Trump, also made derogatory comments about other officials from both political parties, including former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley who was called a “douche.”

The messages were disclosed in a long-anticipated report from the Justice Department’s Office of the Inspector General, released Thursday.

According to the report, Strzok and Page, who were engaged in an extramarital affair, sent at least five text messages referencing other political and government officials.

Strzok worked on the investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server and the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election before he was removed from the latter probe. Page was a lawyer at the bureau, but resigned from her post there last month.

It’s unclear which of the two sent the messages.
