EPA Released A Long-Delayed Report Showing Ethanol Hurts The Environment

An extensive report from the Environmental Protection Agency found that including ethanol into the U.S. gas supply is wreaking havoc on the atmosphere and soil.

In a study titled “Biofuels and the Environment: The Second Triennial Report to Congress,” the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) determined that ethanol derived from corn and soybeans is causing serious harm to the environment. Water, soil and air quality were all found to be adversely affected by biofuel mandates.

“Evidence since enactment of [the Energy Independence and Security Act] suggests an increase in acreage planted with soybeans and corn, with strong indications from observed changes in land use that some of this increase is a consequence of increased biofuel production,” read a portion of the 159-page report.

The ethanol mandate has negatively effected water quality, with greater biofuel production resulting in more harmful algae blooms and hypoxia. While most algae is harmless to water, some forms — such as the kind produced in Lake Eerie from biofuel feedstock — has emitted toxic chemicals into the water. This harmful algae can consume the oxygen in the water, a process known as hypoxia, killing other wildlife.


German Spy Chief Warns, Islamist Children "Pose Real Threat" To Nation

In a shockingly frank and non-politically-correct report, Germany's domestic intelligence chief has warned that children growing up in Islamist families in Germany may pose a risk to society.

As Germany's Deutsche Welle reports, Hans-Georg Maassen - the head of the Office for the Protection of the Constitution (BfV), Germany's domestic intelligence service - said Monday that children from Islamist households in Germany represent a "not insignificant potential threat."

In a new report cited by the Funke media group, the BfV said there were signs the "radicalization of minors and young adults" was becoming more likely and happening faster and earlier.

Maassen warned that what he described as the ongoing jihadist socialization of children was "alarming" and would pose a significant challenge to authorities in the coming years.

The BfV document estimated that some 300 children in Germany were affected. Children in some of these families are "educated from birth with an extremist world view that legitimizes violence against others and degrades those who aren't part of their group," the report said.


Women poised to take charge in Dem majority

If Democrats win the House in November, 35 women are poised to lead committees and subcommittees in the next Congress — an historically high figure that would put female lawmakers in the driver's seat for some of the most pressing issues facing Congress and the country.

That number would almost triple the amount of GOP women currently holding similar positions, and it would mark a measurable achievement for Democratic lawmakers looking to take the “Year of the Woman” to new heights of power.

The shift also would come at the outset of a crucial 2020 presidential cycle, when Democrats want to topple President Trump — a radioactive figure in the eyes of many women’s groups — and use a long-elusive House majority to battle against the administration on issues as diverse as abortion rights, family separations at the U.S. border and the ongoing probe into Russia's election meddling.


Jim Kunstler: The 'NYTimes-Jeong Affair' Represents "Peak SJW Bullshit"

Welcome To Bad Faith

Surely last week this foundering nation finally reached Peak Social Justice Warrior Bullshit with The New York Times hiring of genocide-for-white-people advocate Sarah Leong, 30, as an op-ed writer on tech matters. Apparently, one angle of the tech world Sarah Leong overlooked was the mile-wide Twitter trail of messages she left over the past ten years declaring that white people should be “canceled out,” “made to live underground like groveling goblins,” or this pungent one from the Reinhard Heydrich playbook: “Oh man it’s kind of sick how much joy I get out of being cruel to old white men.”

When this big glob of shit hit the Internet fan, The Times’s HR department cranked out the pathetically lame explanation that Ms. Leong was merely “mirroring” or “counter-trolling” malicious tweets she had received over the years, “imitating the rhetoric of her harassers.”

That left the old newspaper and its readers gratified for a day or too... until a whole new bale of Sarah Leong tweets was discovereddissing The New York Times and virtually all of its other op-ed writers in the most opprobrious terms.

She wrote:

“After a bad day, some people come home and kick the furniture. I get on the Internet and make fun of The New York Times.”

“I don’t feel safe in a country that is led by someone who takes Thomas Friedman seriously.”

“Hannah Rosin shatters ceiling by proving women writers can be as hackish as Tom Friedman, too.”

“[David] Brooks is an absolute nitwit tho.”

“Notajoke: I’m being forced to read Nicholas Kristof. This is the worst.”

“if I had a bajillion dollars, I’d buy the New York Times, just for the pleasure of firing Tom Friedman….”

So far, The Times hasn’t even deigned to respond to this sticky discovery. Good luck with your new colleagues, Sarah! And enjoy your new desk next to the furnace in the second sub-basement of 620 Eighth Avenue! Also notajoke: my own assessment of The New York Times op-ed writers is probably more unfavorable than Ms. Leong’s, but I haven’t been applying for any jobs there.


Trump’s Pentagon Taking More Assertive Stance Against China on Taiwan

The U.S. Navy has sailed ships through the Taiwan Strait throughout the last decade but normally kept those operations quiet — perhaps out of concern it would provoke China, who considers Taiwan its territory and the Taiwan Strait its territorial waters.

But in June, that changed. For the first time since 2007, both the U.S. Navy and Taiwan’s Ministry of Defense publicly confirmed that U.S. Navy ships sailed through the Taiwan Strait, on June 7 and 8.

According to a Taiwanese official, that “was the first time that both US Navy and Taiwan’s Ministry of Defense publicly confirmed such voyage since 2007.”

A U.S. Navy official confirmed that the U.S. Navy had gone “on the record” to confirm the June transit, and that it was the first time that had happened in recent memory. The official said previously there had been a “stranglehold” on discussing such operations that stemmed from the previous administration.


Court ruling freed refugee who's now charged with attempted murder of cop

An Iraqi refugee now charged with attempted murder of a Colorado police officer was actually in ICE custody in 2016 but was ordered released thanks to a court decision that ruled his previous convictions for assault and a host of other crimes weren’t serious enough to deport him.

Authorities say Karrar Noaman al Khammasi, charged last week after what police say was a shootout with Colorado Springs officers, could have been ousted from the country during the Obama administration, but for a series of judges’ rulings that set him free to continue a five-year-long crime spree.

His arrest also raises tough questions about the refugee program at a time when the Trump administration is eyeing major new constraints on the number of people let in each year.

Mr. Khammasi was admitted to the U.S. in 2012 as a refugee from Iraq, according to a Homeland Security official.


Pakistani National Caught Sneaking Across Border into Texas

Border Patrol agents in the Del Rio Sector apprehended a Pakistani national who illegally crossed the border from Mexico into Texas. The Pakistani man was reportedly not attempting to seek asylum but to surreptitiously enter the country.

A trusted source operating under the umbrella of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) who spoke with Breitbart Texas under the condition of anonymity and initially reported that agents assigned to the Comstock Station discovered a Pakistani national attempting to hide and avoid apprehension. The source said the Pakistani was not attempting to turn himself in to seek asylum, but was attempting to avoid detection.

In November 2017, Breitbart Texas Editor in Chief Brandon Darby broke the news that three Pakistani men were apprehended after illegally crossing the Mexican border into Arizona. Confidential CBP sources initially released the information to Breitbart Texas. CBP officials later confirmed the report via email. The three Pakistani men were placed in federal custody pending an investigation.

One year earlier, FBI officials confirmed to Breitbart Texas that a group of five Pakistani nationals and one man from Afghanistan were found about 16 miles inland from the Arizona-Mexico border.


Protests in Iran Hit Boiling Point

Protests against Iran's hardline ruling regime hit a boiling point over the weekend, as demonstrators took to the streets for the sixth consecutive day in the face of efforts by the regime to beat and arrest those seeking regime change in the Islamic Republic, according to multiple reports from the region.

Curfews have been imposed in parts of the country amid nightly demonstrations by Iranian dissidents who have been heard chanting, "death to the dictator" and "Mullahs should go away."

At least one protester was shot and killed by Iranian security forces over the weekend, but that does not appear to have quelled opposition to the Iranian ruling regime, which was smacked Monday with the first portion of harsh new sanctions by the Trump administration following the president's decision to abandon the landmark nuclear deal that provided Iran's leaders with millions in cash windfalls.

The ongoing protests have been percolating for weeks as dissidents take to the streets across Iran to protest the hardline ruling regime and its massive military spending, which has crippled an already weak Iranian economy.

Wells Fargo Apologizes After "Accidentally" Foreclosing Hundreds Of Homes

Another day, another 'apology' for screwing up from Wells Fargo.

Six months after the Fed Slammed Wells Fargo with unprecedented sanctions - no more total asset growth until it cleans up its act - because of a pattern of consumer abuses and other lapses, that list grew over the weekend when the firm said it may have improperly foreclosed on 400 home loans.

As The Mercury News reports, Wells Fargo says a company mistake contributed to hundreds of foreclosures because it miscalculated customers’ eligibility for mortgage modifications.

The bank said in a filing Friday the error caused about 625 customers to be denied, or not offered, loan modifications they otherwise qualified for. Foreclosures were completed in about 400 of the cases.

The customers had been using federal programs that helped families at risk of losing homes. Spokesman Tom Goyda says there’s no breakdown of where the foreclosures occurred.

The error in the bank’s underwriting tool lasted from 2010 until it was fixed in late 2015, an internal review found.

The American Banker adds that the company accrued $8 million in the second quarter to remediate customers that may have been affected by an automated miscalculation of attorneys' fees between April 13, 2010, and Oct. 20, 2015; and it may pay out more in the future.

"To the extent issues are identified, we will continue to assess any customer harm and provide remediation as appropriate," Wells said in the filing.

Cowen & Co. analyst Jaret Seiberg wrote Monday in a note that “Wells Fargo is not making it easy for the Federal Reserve to lift the asset growth cap," adding that “we don’t know how the Federal Reserve could lift the cap this year. And lifting it next year could become a problem if the Democrats retake the House in November as we expect.”


Trump To Override Rosenstein, Declassify Remaining DOJ FISA Docs: Report

After months of dribbling out incomplete document requests made by frustrated GOP lawmakers, President Trump may be about to override Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and use his presidential authority to declassify several caches of information related to the DOJ/FBI's ongoing Trump-Russia counterintelligence operation, according to former IBD Bureau Chief Paul Sperry.

Sperry tweeted on Sunday that President Trump may declassify: 20 redacted pages of a June, 2017 FISA renewal, "and possibly" 63 pages of emails and notes between "Ohr & Steele," and FD-302 summaries of 12 interviews - In reference to twice-demoted DOJ official Bruce Ohr and/or his wife Nellie, both of whom were working with opposition research firm Fusion GPS to investigate Trump.

Look this month for POTUS to declassify ...

-- 20 redacted pages of June 2017 FISA renewal

... and possibly ...

-- 63 pages of emails and notes b/t Ohr & Steele

-- FD-302 summaries of 12 FBI interviews w/ Ohr re Steele

NRA Mocks Hogg, Anti-Gun Rally Protesters With Armed Security

The NRA took full advantage of an opportunity to mock anti-gun protesters - led by David Hogg - for being under the protection of men with guns during their weekend rally in Virginia.

Armed security blanketed the hundreds of protesters and survivors of the Parkland, Florida, high school shooting who held a rally Saturday outside NRA headquarters in Fairfax.

The NRA's social team went to work.

"Today, David Hogg (with armed security) and a bunch of gun-grabbing activists protested our empty HQ, and there were some interesting people there," the NRA tweet read.

Rick Gates Testifies He Committed Crimes With Paul Manafort

ALEXANDRIA, Va. — Rick Gates was just an intern when he first crossed paths with Paul Manafort.

Years later Mr. Gates went to work for him, rising to become right hand man to Mr. Manafort, once a powerful force in Republican politics who more recently had turned his sights to lucrative opportunities abroad.

On Monday, Mr. Gates was Mr. Manafort’s ultimate nemesis, the prosecution’s star witness in Mr. Manafort’s trial on tax and bank fraud charges stemming from work they did together for pro-Russia political forces in Ukraine.

At a time when the investigation into President Trump and Russian involvement in the 2016 campaign has left Washington in a state of constant drama, it was a moment of particular pathos. There was the protégé, having turned against his mentor and agreed to a plea deal, starting to give his account of how the two of them laundered their income. A few feet away was his former boss, flanked by five lawyers waiting to shred Mr. Gates’s character.


Trump: Historic Economy Perfect Time ‘to Straighten Out Worst Trade Deals Ever Made’

President Donald Trump argued on Saturday evening in Ohio that the country’s booming economy presents the nation with the perfect opportunity to straighten out its atrocious trade deals that Trump said were the worst ever made by any nation.

“Now that we have the best economy in the history of our country, this is the time to straighten out the worst trade deals ever made by any country on earth at any time,” Trump said.

Not watering down his economic nationalist message in a more affluent congressional district (OH-12), Trump said America must stop building up foreign countries like China and focus more on rebuilding its own country. He even said of tariffs, “It’s my thing. I love it.”

“After years of rebuilding foreign countries, we are finally rebuilding our country,” said Trump, who tweeted about how he is using tariffs to negotiate fair and reciprocal trade deals before the rally. The audience roared when Trump vowed to finally rebuild America and put American workers.


Facebook reportedly asks major U.S. banks for customers' financial data

Facebook has reportedly approached several of the biggest U.S. banks, asking them to share their customers’ financial data with the social-media giant.

According to a report Monday in the Wall Street Journal, the data included such detailed matters as card transactions besides Facebook-related purchases and checking-account balances.

Citing “people familiar with the matter,” the Journal reported that over the past year Facebook has sought out JPMorgan Chase, Wells Fargo, Citigroup and U.S. Bancorp “to discuss potential offerings it could host for bank customers on Facebook Messenger.”

The talks, reflecting Facebook’s desire to be a site where people buy and sell goods in addition to chat with their friends and share cat videos, are being held up by the banks’ concerns about data privacy, partially a reflection of the selling of user data to Cambridge Analytica, the Journal reported.

Facebook maintains that if it gets the data from banks, it will use it to offer services that encourage people to spend more time on Messenger, and will not use it to target ads or share with third parties.

Midterm Meddling: Facebook Blocks Republican Candidate’s Ad

Facebook has banned Republican congressional candidate Elizabeth Heng’s campaign video ad about communist crimes that led her family to flee Cambodia for the U.S., claiming the platform doesn’t allow “shocking, disrespectful, or sensational” content.

Elizabeth Heng, who is running for California’s 16th congressional district seat, made the video about her parent’s escape from mass-murder by the Khmer Rouge communists in the 1970s.

However, according to the Christian Post, Facebook deemed the video to be “shocking, disrespectful or sensational,” and refused to allow her to run the video as an ad on the platform.


Two employees at the Howard County Fair found dead of suspected overdoses

Howard County police are investigating the suspected overdose deaths of two food vendor employees at the Howard County Fair in West Friendship. 

Police were called around 11:50 a.m. by an employee who discovered that there were two people inside a locked bunk house on the fairgrounds. Members of the fire department forced entry and found two men inside, one in his 30s and the other in his 40s, deceased. Both were from out-of-state. 

Investigators found evidence of drug use at the scene. The cause of death will be confirmed through autopsy. Preliminarily, there are no indications of foul play. 

There is no additional identifying information available about the men or their employer. Police will be working to locate and notify next-of-kin.

UPDATE: Bone Found In Chest Off Stinky Beach In WOC

WEST OCEAN CITY — More details have emerged Tuesday afternoon in the mysterious discovery of what is being described as a “seaman’s chest” containing possible human remains in the bay near Homer Gudelsky Park, or what is commonly known as Stinky Beach.

Around 9 a.m. on Tuesday morning, a couple from Ellicott City, Md., was walking on the beach and in the water off Stinky Beach, a narrow, sandy sliver of beach at the end of Old Bridge Road in West Ocean City, when they came across an odd discovery in the water.

“The couple was walking in the water and stumbled over something submerged,” said Worcester County Sheriff’s Office Public Information Officer Lieutenant Ed Schreier. “They described it as a chest or maybe a seaman’s chest. They couldn’t get it out of the water, so they opened it.”

Schreier said when the couple opened the chest, they found some personal items including a shoe, some pieces of pottery and a bone. He said it was uncertain at this point if the bone was a human remain. However, the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner was contacted and was on the scene around midday on Tuesday.


'If You Like Bernie, This Could Be Your Future': Gutfeld on Venezuela

Greg Gutfeld reacted to an apparent assassination attempt on Venezuelan's socialist president, Nicolas Maduro, in which drones packed with C4 explosives reportedly were flown toward him at a rally.

The country is experiencing nearly 1,000,000 percent inflation, food shortages and violence in the streets.

"Venezuela is a socialist paradise that was once rich. Meaning, if you like Bernie [Sanders], this could be your future," Gutfeld said.

Gutfeld said someone should "page" New York democratic socialist congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and show her the "hyper-inflation [and] human rights violations" that have wrecked what was once the most prosperous country in South America.


Donald and the Di-Spy

The point Trump should have made about Senator Feinstein and the FBI

Donald Trump couldn’t resist commenting on the news that Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein was the target of Chinese spying, but he missed the main point.

“I like Dianne Feinstein, I have to tell you, but I don’t like the fact she had a Chinese spy driving her, and she didn’t know it,” Mr. Trump averred at a Saturday rally in Ohio, adding: “Then she says to me: ‘Well, what did you know about this and that [Russia collusion]?’ I mean, give me a break, c’mon folks.”

But the issue here isn’t what Mrs. Feinstein says about Mr. Trump; it’s what the FBI told Mrs. Feinstein but didn’t tell Mr. Trump.

Foreign countries are always trying to steal U.S. secrets, and they sometimes succeed. In this case Mrs. Feinstein tweeted over the weekend that the FBI approached her five years ago with concerns about an “administrative” staffer in her San Francisco office with “no access to sensitive information.” She said she “learned the facts and made sure the employee left my office immediately.”

This is what the FBI should do, and the question Mr. Trump should ask is why the bureau didn’t treat him as a potential President with the same customary courtesy. The FBI claims it had concerns beginning in spring 2016 that low-level Trump campaign staffers Carter Page and George Papadopoulos were colluding with Russians. Yet rather than give the Trump campaign the usual defensive briefing, the FBI launched an unprecedented counterintelligence investigation into a presidential campaign, running informants against it and obtaining surveillance warrants.


Florida sheriff blasts Al Sharpton over rally: 'Go back to New York. Mind your own business'

A Florida sheriff on Monday responded to sharp criticism from the Rev. Al Sharpton for not arresting a white man who shot and killed an unarmed black man during a parking lot dispute last month.

Sharpton criticized Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri at a Sunday rally for Markeis McGlockton.

McGlockton was shot on July 19 by Michael Drejka in Clearwater, according to FOX13 Tampa Bay. Drekja told deputies he feared for his life and police at the time shot not to arrest him, citing the state’s “Stand Your Ground” law.

“This case should not be tried in a parking lot of a convenience store,” Sharpton said. “It should be tried in a courtroom.”

Gualtieri was asked about Sharpton’s comments Monday during a press conference for an unrelated investigation.

“It's a bunch of rhetoric. I don't pay much attention to it, to tell you the truth. I wasn't there, and I don't really care what Al Sharpton has to say,” Gualtieri said. “Go back to New York. Mind your own business.”

Judge Dismisses Lawsuit Against Fox News In Seth Rich Case

A New York City judge dismissed a lawsuit filed by the parents of murdered Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich on Thursday that asserted Fox News Channel colluded with the White House to propel a false, politically-biased narrative about Rich’s death.

Rich was gunned down outside of his home in Washington, D.C., on July 10, 2016. The death prompted conspiracy theories introduced by Fox News and peddled by television pundits including Newt Gingrich, Sean Hannity, Alex Jones and Rush Limbaugh that Rich was targeted because he allegedly corresponded with Wikileaks, leaking thousands of emails to them from the DNC. (RELATED: Donna Brazile Has A Theory About Who Killed Seth Rich)

Rich’s parents called Fox News’ decision to publish the article, which the family claims is false, as “extreme and outrageous conduct,” according to a lawsuit filed in March. The judge has since dismissed the allegations, which implicated Fox News reporter Malia Zimmerman and Ed Butowsky, a Fox news guest who contributed to the report, according to The New York Times.

“It is understandable that plaintiffs might feel that their grief and personal loss were taken advantage of, and that the tragic death of their son was exploited for political purposes,” but Fox evidently did not intend to inflict emotional distress, Judge George Daniels wrote in his decision. Daniels came to this decision despite the fact that Fox made “false statements or misrepresentations” in their reporting. Their story has since been retracted because it did not meet the publication’s standards.


Six Times the Obama Administration Should Have Appointed Special Counsel

What is a special counsel, and why do we have them? According to Wikipedia, “a special prosecutor (or special counsel or independent counsel or independent prosecutor) is a lawyer appointed to investigate, and potentially prosecute, a particular case of suspected wrongdoing for which a conflict of interest exists for the usual prosecuting authority” -- i.e., the perceived conflict of interest of Jeff Sessions to investigate alleged collusion of the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 election.

Anyway, while liberals are holding out hope for Robert Mueller to find evidence of collusion and force Trump to resign or be impeached, it occurs to me that despite the rampant corruption and scandals-a-plenty of the Obama years that there was never a single special counsel appointed. Not one. Obama supporters point to this as evidence that his administration was above board, but in reality, it was just proof of just how corrupt things were. By limiting investigations to their own sham investigations that saw no one held accountable, or to congressional Republicans whose investigations they could simply stonewall and accuse of being partisan, the Obama administration felt they could keep up the ruse that they were scandal-free. Here are six times the Obama administration should have appointed a special counsel to investigate a scandal but didn’t.

Top Democrat in New Hampshire Senate Faces Domestic Violence Charges, Calls to Resign

The top Democrat in the New Hampshire state Senate was arrested on Thursday on nine misdemeanor counts of domestic violence. Jeff Woodburn, the Senate minority leader, has vowed to fight the allegations even as he faces bipartisan calls to resign.

"I intend to fully address and defend against these charges in court," Woodburn said. The attorney general’s office accuses Woodburn of incidents extending back to last August, including "repeatedly biting a woman described as an ‘intimate partner,’ striking her face and stomach, throwing water at her and causing damage to her property," the Washington Post reports.

Republicans and Democrats in the state have swiftly called for Woodburn's resignation.

"This morally reprehensible, violent behavior has no place in public service, or anywhere else," Gov. Chris Sununu (R.) stated. Ray Buckley, chairman of the New Hampshire Democratic Party, said "any form of sexual harassment, sexual assault, or domestic violence is completely unacceptable behavior for anyone let alone our public officials who should all be held to a higher standard."

Woodburn, who represents Senate District 1, is a third-term senator who is running for reelection to a fourth term. He was chosen to lead the Senate’s Democratic caucus in 2014.

BREAKING NEWS: Authorities Investigating Discovery Of Possible Human Remains

12 times Christopher Steele fed Trump-Russia allegations to FBI after the election

Congressional investigators know that Christopher Steele, the former British spy who compiled the Trump dossier on behalf of the Clinton campaign, kept supplying allegations to the FBI after the 2016 election — and even after he was terminated as a source by the bureau for giving confidential information to the media.

Because he had broken his agreement with the FBI, bureau procedure did not allow agents to keep using Steele as a source. But they did so anyway — by devising a system in which Steele spoke regularly with Bruce Ohr, a top Obama Justice Department official whose wife worked for Fusion GPS, which hired Steele to search for dirt on Donald Trump in Russia. Ohr then passed on Steele's information to the FBI.

In a highly unusual arrangement, Ohr, who was the fourth-highest ranking official in the Justice Department, acted as an intermediary for a terminated source for the FBI's Trump-Russia probe. His task was to deliver to the FBI what Steele told him, which effectively meant the bureau kept Steele as a source.



“It is not right. It is not fair. It is not just. It is un-American.”

Following yet another stunt for the cameras during which he attempted to coerce the White House Press Secretary into declaring that the media is not the ‘enemy of the people,’ CNN reporter Jim Acosta appeared on the network and complained that he is “tired” of being called fake news by the President and Trump supporters.

Acosta stormed out of a press briefing on Thursday because Sarah Huckabee Sanders refused to play along with his games.


"Civil Disturbance" Declared After Portland Riot Cops Use Flash Grenades On Antifa

Police in Portland, Oregon declared a civil disturbance on Saturday after counter-protesters from Antifa showed up at a downtown Patriot Prayer rally and threw projectiles at the police, resulting in the deployment of flash grenades.

The disturbance comes around a month after "Rose City" Antifa squared off with conservatives in a violent altercation that took place in the middle of Second Avenue.


WATCH: Statue of Liberty Climber Spews Anti-America Chant Outside Manhattan Court

The activist who climbed the base of the Statue of Liberty on Independence Day spewed an anti-America chant during a news conference on Friday.

Therese Okoumou is facing numerous charges, including trespassing, interference with government agency functions and disorderly conduct for scaling the icon of freedom, according to the New York Post.

However, she appeared outside Manhattan federal court Friday wearing a dress that said, “I really care, why won’t u?” before beginning what she called her "song."

“America, you motherf–kers! You drug addicts! You KKK! You fascist USA," she shouted to her supporters.


Illegal Aliens Self Deporting to Canada Due to Trump’s Crackdown

Illegal aliens are self deporting to Canada, moving across the northern border due to President Trump’s crackdown on immigration.

A new report by the Washington Post chronicles the stories of multiple illegal aliens who were living in the United States and have now decided to self deport to Canada in order to avoid deportation.

In one case highlighted by the Washington Post, an illegal alien single mother from Eritrea with two U.S.-born anchor babies decided to flee Las Vegas and head to Canada after she was denied asylum. “So now I am here just hoping it gets better,” Mesfin said as she pushed the stroller, while trying to manage her toddler, toward Canada.

Another illegal alien, from Sri Lanka, who has been living illegally in the U.S. since 2005 said he fled from Maryland to Canada after he heard that the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) was doing more to combat U.S. businesses hiring illegal aliens over American citizens.

BOMBSHELL: Parkland Shooter Asked For Help Before Massacre, Was Denied

A newly released report has revealed that the 19-year-old gunman who shot up Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in February asked for help months before he went on the rampage, but the school district failed to act on his request.

The report was released on Friday after Broward Circuit Judge Elizabeth Scherer ordered Broward County Public Schools to release its report on the gunman who murdered 17 people during the Valentine's Day massacre.

According to The Daily Beast, the shooter was told that "he could transfer to Cross Creek, a school tailored for students with special needs; sue the Broward school district; or stay at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School without any special counseling."


The First Fake-Media-Induced Mental Illness

Fake mainstream news sources have actually succeeded in broadcasting so much unbridled fear into the United States that weak-kneed left-leaning Americans are coming down with a mental illness that goes by two different names: Trump Anxiety Disorder and Trump Derangement Syndrome.

The symptoms of these conditions include a delusional belief that it's the end of the world, a disorientation that's beyond the liberal norm, an unhealthy obsession with following every liberal news channel's apocalypse of the day, a deep sense of anxiety and dread, and being prone to unhinged hissy fits if anyone dares to besmirch the sterling reputation of either Hillary Rodham Clinton or Barack Hussein Obama.

While "Trump Anxiety Disorder" (a term originally coined by psychologist Jennifer Panning) and Trump Derangement Syndrome are real, they have been deceivingly misnamed. These mental illnesses have absolutely nothing to do with our 45th president and everything to do with our partisan media, who are ruthlessly and unethically trying to take down our duly elected commander in chief.

ICE Ramps Up I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification Enforcement: Thank You President Trump

Various sources confirm that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has significantly increased its worksite enforcement efforts, particularly in Maryland. The hospitality industry has traditionally been a target of such enforcement action. Because non-compliance penalties can be substantial, now is a good time to make sure that your workplace is in compliance with current employment verification requirements.

As of 09/18/17, employers were required to use only the most recent version (07/17/17) of Form I-9 for all new hires. This Form currently shows an expiration date of 08/31/19 at the top. Expired versions of Form I-9 used for new hires after 09/17/17 are not valid. Always make sure management is using a valid Form I-9 for new hires.

Form I-9 records must be retained in accordance with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) retention and storage rules. Generally, employers must produce I-9 records within 3 days of receiving an inspection notice.

For more information about Form I-9 and verifying employment eligibility (including the optional E-Verify companion to the I-9), visit I-9 Central.

Cory Booker Admits Dem Problem: ‘We Seem To Have Lost Our Way’

Democrats have lost their connection to everyday voters, according to Senator Cory Booker (D-NY).

Speaking at Netroots Nation 2018, a progressive political convention, Booker admitted Friday that the Democrat Party needs to refocus its message based on the needs of voters rather than its hatred of the president.

“I think a lot about the Democratic Party nationally and how it seems that that connection to people – where they are, what their experiences are, their struggles, their hurt, and their pain – how we seem to have lost our way,” Booker said.

“What we need to be doing is reconnecting ourselves to folks where they are.”

What Booker fails to realize is his party has alienated a large swath of voters through identity politicsand the party’s sudden shift towards a far-left socialist platform.

Additionally, the party’s increasingly unhinged rhetoric against President Trump, his administrationand family, and his supporters has derailed the Democrat party’s messaging – its policy platform is now for anything Trump is against, and is against anything Trump is for.


Black Chicagoans Blast "Con Man" Mayor Emanuel Amid Record Shooting Spree, Ask Trump For Help

77 people were shot last week in Chicago, 9 fatally, but the rate of shootings has accelerated aggressively today as 'HeyJackass' reports "30 shot in 3 hours is the most shot in the least amount of time we’ve recorded in 5+ years. The previous record was July 4-5, 2016 w/ 29 shot in 6 hours."

Amid this carnage, ABC7Chicago reports that, police said there was a "trauma lockdown" at Stroger Hospital with only immediate family members of victims are being allowed in the emergency room. A spokeswoman for Stroger Hospital disputes the police account.

"Over the past 24 hours, Stroger's trauma unit received an unusually high volume of patients. At no time did Stroger go on bypass or 'lockdown' its trauma unit," the spokeswoman said. "We are asking the families of trauma patients to limit visitation at this time to immediate family members only so staff may focus on patient care. "



The light turned yellow just in front of him. He did the right thing and stopped at the crosswalk, even though he could have beaten the red light by accelerating through the intersection. The tailgating woman behind him was furious and honked her horn, screaming in frustration, as she missed her chance to get through the intersection.

As she was still in mid-rant, she heard a tap on her window and looked up into the face of a very serious police officer. The officer ordered her to exit her car with her hands up. He took her to the police station where she was searched, fingerprinted, photographed and placed in a holding cell.

After a couple of hours, a policeman approached the cell and opened the door. She was escorted back to the booking desk where the arresting officer was waiting with her personal effects.

He said, "I'm very sorry for this mistake. You see, I pulled up behind your car while you were blowing your horn, giving the guy in front of you the finger and cursing at him. I noticed the 'What Would Jesus Do' bumper sticker, the 'Choose Life' license plate holder, the 'Follow Me to Sunday-School' bumper sticker, and the chrome-plated Christian fish emblem on the trunk, so naturally I assumed you had stolen the car."

President's Salary

On Friday, the Trump administration released their annual report to Congress on White House Office Personnel. It includes the name, status, salary and position title of all 377 White House employees. The report also said that Trump decided not to take a dime of his salary; instead he donated it to an amazing cause! See below.

The report also showed that President Trump is far better at saving money than Obama was. The total annual White House salaries under Trump are $35.8 million vs. $60.9 million under Obama, a savings of $25.1 million. Here are some other key findings:

There are 140 fewer employees on White House staff under Trump than under Obama at this point in their respective presidencies.

Thirty-nine fewer staffers are also dedicated to The First Lady of the United States (FLOTUS). Currently, there are only five staffers dedicated to Melania Trump vs. forty-four staffers who served Michelle Obama (FY2009)

However, it's what the report said Trump did with this salary that has everyone talking.

Instead of taking his salary, Trump donated all $400,000 to the Department of the Interior where it will be used for construction and repair needs at military cemeteries! AMAZING! It's so great to have a President who loves our brave military men and women so much!

Clinton Foundation

A Charitable Foundation Folds !

Have you wondered why the Clinton Foundation folded so suddenly after Hillary was no longer in a position of influence? Perhaps this summary will provide some insight?

From their 2014 990 Tax Form; they list 486 employees (line 5)!

It took 486 people who are paid $34.8 million and $91.3 million in fees and expenses, to give away $5.1 MILLION

The real heart of the Clintons can be seen here. Staggering but not
surprising. These figures are from an official copy of the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation for the tax year 2014. The copy of the tax return is from the National Center for Charitable Statistics web site . You can obtain the latest tax return on any charitable organization there.

The Clinton Foundation: Number of Employees (line 5) 486

Total revenue (line 12): $177,804,612.00

Total grants to charity (line 13) $5,160,385.00 (this is less than 3%)

Total expenses of $91,281,145.00

Expenses include:

Salaries (line 15) $34,838,106.00

Fund raising fees (line 16a) $850,803.00

Other expenses (line 17) $50,431,851.00 HUH??????

Travel: $8,000,000.00

Note: $20 Million in Travel & Meetings to decide who gets the $5.160 Million in Charity ?

Meetings: $12,000,000.00

Net assets/fund balances (line 22) $332,471,349.00... So it required 486 people, who were paid $34.8 million, plus $91.3 million in fees and expenses, to give away $5.1 MILLION!

And they call this a CHARITY?

(It is alleged that this is one of the greatest white-collar crimes ever
committed. And just think — one of the participants was a former president and one (gasp!) wanted to be elected president of the United States.

If justice was truly served they would both be in prison).

New FBI Docs Reveal Agency Paid Steele, Admonished Him, And Strzok Sat On Weiner Probe

In the last 48 hours, the FBI has released two caches of documents through their "FBI Vault" website related to the 2016 US election. One sheds light on the agency's relationship with Christopher Steele, while the other reveals that disgraced agent Peter Strzok waited until after the 2016 election to have Anthony Weiner's laptop analyzed for hacking.

The 71-page release of heavily redacted records concerning former MI6 spy Christopher Steele reveals that he was paid by the agency over an unknown period of time - at least 11 times during 2016, and that Steele was admonished by the agency for unknown reasons in February, 2016.

An example of the heavily redacted forms noting Steele's payments as well as his admonishment:
