Viral App FaceApp Now Owns Access To More Than 150 Million People's Faces And Names

Everyone's seen them: friends posting pictures of themselves now, and years in the future.

Viral app FaceApp has been giving people the power to change their facial expressions, looks, and now age for several years. But at the same time, people have been giving FaceApp the power to use their pictures — and names — for any purpose it wishes, for as long as it desires.

And we thought we learned a lesson from Cambridge Analytica.

More than 100 million people have downloaded the app from Google Play. And FaceApp is now the top-ranked app on the iOS App Store in 121 countries, according to App Annie.


Trump sees bump in GOP approval after weekend tweets against 'The Squad'

Republican support for President Trump has increased slightly since Sunday when he tweeted that a group of liberal representatives should "go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came."

Democrats and some Republicans have slammed the president’s tweets as racist and xenophobic. The Democrat-controlled House passed a resolution on Tuesday condemning Trump for his attack on Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts.

The controversy seems not to have dented the president’s support among his own party and may even have bolstered it, according to a Reuters/Ipsos public opinion poll released Tuesday. A national survey conducted Monday and Tuesday found that 72% of Republicans approve of Trump, a 5% increase over a similar poll last week.

Charity run by wife of Elijah Cummings incurs new ethics complaint

A watchdog group is asking the Maryland attorney general to investigate whether Rep. Elijah Cummings and his wife used a charity for improper self-enrichment, according to a copy of the complaint obtained by the Washington Examiner.

The Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust, which leans conservative, filed the complaint on Monday against the Center for Global Policy Solutions, a nonprofit organization founded by Cummings’ wife, Maya Rockeymoore.

The complaint asked Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh to investigate the financial relationship between the Center for Global Policy Solutions and Rockeymoore’s for-profit consulting firm, Global Policy Solutions LLC.

Explosions at Perdue in Accomac

Heavy smoke blew northwest into the sky from tanks where chemical explosions occurred at around 3 p.m., Wednesday, at Perdue Farms, in Accomac, while hundreds of employees were evacuated and others were kept from starting their shifts.

“We can confirm a fire outside of our Accomac facility,” Danielle Tergis, of Perdue Corporate Communications, said Wednesday night. “Out of an abundance of caution we have evacuated the facility. There are no reported injuries. The cause of the fire is under investigation.”

Accomack County used its Code Red Alert System to call landlines in the nearby communities and notify people by cellphone who had signed up for the service. They were told to stay inside and avoid the smoke.

Accomack County Public Safety workers, volunteer firefighters and rescue personnel from six local companies, and hazmat experts responded. Some stayed on the scene for hours waiting for the fire to go out as it couldn’t be battled in the usual manner. No injuries were reported.

Rashida Tlaib says Pelosi's singling out of ‘the squad’ led to death threats

Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib partly blamed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for the death threats directed at a group of minority congresswomen.

“The fact of the knowledge is, and I’ve done racial justice work in our country for a long time, acknowledge the fact that we are women of color, so when you do single us out, be aware of that, and what you’re doing. Especially because some of us are getting death threats. Because some of us are being singled out in many ways because of our backgrounds, because of our experiences and so forth,” the Michigan lawmaker said in an interview that aired Wednesday on CBS This Morning.

Pelosi said earlier this month the group of congresswomen, known as “the squad,” had little influence in the House after they voted against a border funding bill.



Brenda Gibbons, 58, of Rehoboth Beach was arrested on Sunday for trespassing on private property and resisting arrest.

Police: Father threw 5-year-old son into Atlantic Ocean to teach him how to swim

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. —A Florida man accused of throwing his 5-year-old son into the ocean has posted bond and was released from jail Tuesday.

That man reportedly left the child alone in the water as he repeatedly dove from a Daytona Beach pier.

One witness told reporters he raced to help the little boy.

It's illegal to jump off the Main Street Pier in Daytona Beach, but that is what witnesses say John Bloodsworth was doing Monday night while his child was struggling to swim in a deep part of the ocean near the pier.

"I said, 'I can't take this no more.' So I went down to the pier, down to the shore and confronted him myself," witness Mitch Brown said.


FBI Found VAST MAJORITY of Steele Dossier Was Wrong or Unverifiable –USED IT AGAINST TRUMP ANYWAY

Investigative reporter John Solomon broke another HUGE story on Tuesday.

According to Solomon the FBI knew in early 2017 that the VAST MAJORITY of the Steele Dossier was wrong or unverified. And yet they continued to use the fake document anyway to spy on Trump and his campaign, transition team and administration.

On Hannity tonight Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) said what was significant was that they continued to use his work anyway. Meadows confirmed that John Solomon’s report is accurate.

Meadows confirmed that the FBI kept their investigation open despite them knowing the entire investigation was based on a fraud.


22 MS-13 Members Charged In Murders Of Seven People Hacked With Machetes

The Justice Department charged 22 alleged members of MS-13 in connection with seven murders in the Los Angeles area, including one in which a rival gang member was dismembered with a machete.

The indictment, which was unsealed Monday, focused on members of a Los Angeles-area subset of MS-13 known as the Fulton clique. Prosecutors called the San Fernando Valley-based gang a “particularly violent subset” of MS-13 that “has recently seen an influx of young immigrants from Central America.”

The Trump administration has made MS-13 a major focus of his crackdown on illegal immigration and drug trafficking. The notoriously violent gang originated in El Salvador, but has strongholds in numerous American cities.


Pandemonium Overtakes House as Nancy Pelosi Violates Chamber’s Rules, Trump Rebuke Backfires

Pandemonium overtook the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday afternoon and early evening as a Democrat-led effort to rebuke President Donald Trump over his criticisms of socialist lawmakers backfired badly with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi violating the rules of the chamber.

Amid the chaos, which undercut the Democrats’ message, the Democrat charged with running it literally abandoned the control of the House floor for a moment, something aides say they have never seen before and are unsure if it has ever happened in history–all as the Democrat Party struggled for hours with how to handle clear violations of House rules by their Speaker, Pelosi.

This account of what happened on the floor comes from interviews with members and staff present on the House floor during these proceedings, and from conversations with others in touch with officials present as the Democrats’ big anti-Trump parade was rained out by all the craziness.


Easton Police Department Press Release 7-17-19 (Fatal Vehicle Collision)

Woodstock 50 rocked by even more legal drama

Peace, love and under . . . threat of litigation.

Woodstock 50, the most legally fraught celebration of good vibes on record, has racked up yet more attorneys’ fees, Page Six has learned.

Original Woodstock co-organizer Michael Lang announced in December that he planned to host a festival this August to mark the 50th anniversary of the 1969 cultural landmark. But the fest has since been dogged by a string of catastrophes, with its financial backer and production company pulling out and local authorities refusing permits — and with Lang threatening lawsuits throughout.

In the meantime, another flower child, Kenn Moutenot, decided to stage his own tribute to Woodstock, planning a two-weekend “Woodstock Experience” in the hills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina.


Terrifying moment that a raft full of people plunges down waterfall

Shocking video captured the moment that a group of rafters plunged over a 30ft waterfall after apparently ignoring warning signs to turn around.

The rafters at Ohiopyle State Park in Pennsylvania had rented a raft and took an unguided white water boating trip on the Middle Youghiogheny River.

While navigating the river, the group took a wrong turn that set them on a dangerous course. They passed three warning signs urging boaters to turn back, with one sign stating 'waterfall ahead'.

The moment the rafters plummeted over the falls was captured on video by bystander Cody Veronie, who posted the video to his Facebook.


Bedlam on House Floor: Pelosi Storms Off amid Boos from Members

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was booed after attempting to shame lawmakers into supporting the House Democrats’ resolution to condemn what they consider “racist” tweets from President Trump, arguing that anything less would be “a shameful abdication” of their oath of office to “protect the American people.”

The speaker railed against Trump during Tuesday’s debate on the House floor, promising that her caucus would continue to respond to the “disrespect” aimed at the fundamental diversity of America. She accused the president of legitimizing and increasing “fear” and “hatred” against people of color and attempted to shame lawmakers who are dismissing the Democrats’ politically fueled resolution.

“It’s so sad because you would think that there would be a given that we would universally in this body just say ‘of course, of course,'” Pelosi remarked. “There is no excuse for any response to those words but a swift and strong, unified condemnation.”

“Every single member of this institution– Democratic and Republican– should join us in condemning the president’s racist tweets,” she continued.


A Bacterial Invasion? East-Coast-ers Face Flesh-Eating Disease Epidemic In 2019

Why are we suddenly seeing so many cases of flesh-eating disease all along the east coast of the United States?

For years, flesh-eating bacterial infections were so rare in the U.S. that even a single case would make national headlines. But here in 2019 the news is telling us that we are seeing flesh-eating infections “at a rate much higher than in previous years”, and this outbreak really seems to have escalated dramatically over the last couple of months. In fact, I found so many cases as I was doing research for this article that I had to simply stop reading at one point or I would have never gotten this article done in time. So in this article I will be sharing quite a few examples with you, but it is far from an exhaustive list.

Let’s start with a Tennessee man that was just killed by flesh-eating bacteria after a trip to the Florida panhandle. This is what his daughter had to say about his death
“About 4:00 a.m. Saturday morning, 12 hours after we were in the water, he woke up with a fever, chills and some cramping. … They got to the hospital in Memphis around 8 p.m.,” Wiygul said in the post. “They took him back immediately. As they were helping him get changed into his hospital gown they saw this terribly swollen black spot on his back that was not there before.”

The man’s condition worsened over the next several hours. His immune system had been weakened by a bout with cancer, the daughter said, and he died Sunday afternoon.
That is how fast flesh-eating disease can kill you. If it is not treated immediately, there is a good chance you will die.

And it doesn’t take much. One woman that had just moved to Florida recently died after getting a small cut on her leg “while walking along the coast on Anna Maria Island”


Democrat ‘Doomsday Scenario’ as Campaign Funds Evaporate

Empty wallets might finally do to the crowd of Democrat 2020 presidential challengers what national disinterest could not.

New financial disclosures show that 11 liberal contenders for the Oval Office are operating their campaigns at a deficit, having spent more money than campaign donations could support. Eight more have less than $1 million on hand. More than five months from 2020, only the front-runners have the financial means to go much further.

“This is the doomsday scenario for a lot of campaigns, where they’re grasping for air to keep their campaigns alive and to live another day,” said Washington Democrat strategist Andrew Feldman. “You can’t build an organization. You can’t build an operation that turns enthusiasm into votes without having resources to do it.”

“You’re not going to see a lot of people continuing to give to a person with no money left,” he added.


'Justice wasn't served': Grand jury foreman says he's still frustrated

The foreman in the grand jury that didn't indict US Sen. Edward M. Kennedy after his Oldsmobile sedan veered off a narrow bridge on Chappaquiddick Island on July 18, 1969 says he's still frustrated justice wasn't served for 28-year-old Mary Jo Kopechne who died.

Kennedy, 37, survived, following the incident where his car plunged off an extension of the resort island of Martha's Vineyard and into a moonlit pond 50 years ago Thursday but the Massachusetts Democrat waited 10 hours to report the accident to police, and the 'whys?' dogged him for the rest of his days.

Half a century later, what did and didn't happen on Chappaquiddick Island continues to fascinate and Leslie Leland - who was a young pharmacist when he was swept up in the aftermath - continues to be annoyed by the judge's refusal to subpoena anyone who was at the party they had attended that night.


West Virginians are inhaling and injecting WASP SPRAY as a cheap alternative to meth

Drug users are turning to wasp spray as a cheap alternative to meth, West Virginia State Police said.

Officials believe the bug killer played a role in three overdoses in Boone County last week.

Police told WCHS-TV on Monday that they are observing an uptick in the alarming drug trend, which is also known as 'wasping'.

'We're seeing this here on the streets in Boone County,' Sgt. Charles Sutphin said. 'People are making a synthetic type methamphetamine out of wasp spray.'

He added that physical effects are erratic behavior and extreme swelling and redness of the hands and feet.

Abused in combination with meth or on its own, wasp spray has been described by users as generating a 'rush,' feelings of déjà vu and a hallucinatory sense of smell, ABC News reported.


Prosecutors accuse MS-13 of 7 'medieval-style' slayings, including cutting heart out of rival

Los Angeles MS-13 gang members were charged Tuesday with the “medieval-style” slayings of seven people, including a rival gang member who had his heart cut out of his chest.

The federal RICO indictment with the murder charges targets an MS-13 group in the San Fernando Valley and spells out other acts of violence prosecutors say were committed on behalf of the notorious transnational gang, which President Trump has vilified for its wanton violence in New York and other places.

In announcing the indictment against 22 individuals, Los Angeles U.S. Attorney Nick Hanna credited a collaborative law enforcement effort with solving several murder cases and dealing “a severe blow to members of the gang who engaged in acts of brutality not seen in the region for over 20 years."


Jeffrey Epstein Registered As a Sex Offender in 2 States. In New Mexico, He Didn’t Have To.

Jeffrey Epstein, the New York financier, managed to evade federal prosecution a decade ago in a Florida sex case involving dozens of teenage girls, in part by agreeing to register as a sex offender. But for a man with many residences, and many high-powered lawyers, registering as a sex offender was not the blanket penalty it might seem.

He did register in Florida, where he pleaded guilty to two state felony charges. But in New York, where he owns one of Manhattan’s most expensive mansions, he managed to avoid check-ins with the authorities by changing his official residence to the Virgin Islands. And in New Mexico, where he owned a palatial residence south of Santa Fe, he was able to avoid inclusion in the state’s registry entirely.

That state’s relatively cursory investigation took into account only a police report which indicated, the authorities said, that the underage victim in the case to which Mr. Epstein pleaded guilty in 2010 was 17 — the age of consent in New Mexico — though the girl whose report launched the investigation against him was just 14.


Air Force warns storming Area 51 is 'dangerous' as 1.3M people sign up to break in

A widely discussed event to "storm" Area 51 may be a joke, but the U.S. military isn't playing around.

Planned for Sept. 20 between 3 a.m. and 6 a.m., a Facebook event now has roughly 1.3 million people signed up to attend "Storm Area 51, They Can't Stop All of Us."

Although the event has sparked an array of online memes and jokes about freeing aliens, the Air Force, which oversees the facility located within the Nevada Test and Training Range, is warning that any effort to breach the base is serious business.


Rep. Harris Announces Rural Development Award for Water Systems in the Town of Vienna

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Andy Harris, M.D. (MD-01) announced a $25,000 award to the Town of Vienna for rural development from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). According to the USDA, the “investment will be used to fund a preliminary engineering report (PER) and environmental report (ER) to study options for improving water quality and water system operations in Vienna, Maryland. The PER and ER reports will analyze proposed alternatives for improvement and estimated costs to determine the feasibility and potential environmental impacts of each possible solution.”

Rep. Harris made the following statement on the award:

“I applaud the USDA for investing in the water systems of Vienna. I welcome helping our rural municipalities in maintaining and improving their clean drinking water sources. We all appreciate the help of USDA in these ongoing efforts.”

This award is funded under the SEARCH -- Special Evaluation Assistance for Rural Communities and Households – program. The USDA describes the program as assisting “very small, financially distressed rural communities with predevelopment feasibility studies, design and technical assistance on proposed water and waste disposal projects.”

Quote of the Day

“There’s a constant struggle oftentimes with people who have power, about sharing that power. We are not really in the business of asking for the share of that power. We’re in the business of trying to grab that power.” ---Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Somalia)

Woodstock 50 courts Vernon with offers of jobs, VIP lounge, playground

Town of Vernon, N.Y. -- Faced with a potential court battle this week over plans to hold a concert at Vernon Downs, Woodstock 50 is courting area residents with promises of jobs, charitable donations, a VIP lounge and even a new playground.

Town codes officials have twice denied Woodstock 50’s request to hold a concert at Vernon Downs Casino Hotel in mid-August, saying the applications were incomplete and filed too late. Promoters will appeal to the town planning board Tuesday night. If they lose, they can go to court.

In the meantime, concert promoters and track owners announced in a news release they’ll hold an open house tonight and Tuesday morning to present plans for the show, expected to draw 65,000 people Aug. 16 to 18.


'What's the Big Secret?' More States Are Hiding 911 Recordings From Families, Lawyers and the Public

Troy Phillips was repairing a propane filling station on Cape Cod one afternoon last October when his mother called, her voice frantic.

“Something happened to Scott!”

Phillips’ younger brother Scott had been rushed to the hospital. Troy’s first thought was that Scott, who worked as a truck driver, must have been hurt in an accident. His mother was so upset on the phone that he could barely understand what she was saying.

Then she blurted out, “He died!”


Former Pocomoke City Police Chief Gets Probation

Despite efforts by prosecutors to elicit jail time for Pocomoke’s first black police chief Kelvin Sewell, a Worcester County Judge ruled that the former Baltimore Homicide Supervisors would serve probation for a misdemeanor misconduct conviction tied to a 2014 accident investigation.

Prior to sentencing by Judge Newton Jackson III supporters of Sewell filled the courtroom and made impassioned pleas on his behalf, according to several attendees who spoke the AFRO.

“I’m just glad people showed up today,” Pocomoke Pastor Ronnie White said. “I think the judge actually listened to what we had to say.”

Sewell was convicted of misconduct in office by a nearly all white jury in April 2019. The charges stem from a 2014 accident involving two parked cars. State Prosecutor Emmitt Davitt sought a six-month sentence for Sewell.


Kentucky Could Be the Next State to Ban 'Sanctuary Cities'

Gov. Matt Bevin said Thursday he supports proposed legislation that would prohibit the creation of "sanctuary cities" and limit local governments' authority to enact policies prohibiting local police from cooperating with immigration officials or asking people about their immigration status.

The proposed bill would prohibit any Kentucky city from enacting "sanctuary policies." The legislation defines sanctuary cities as any policy that limits local law enforcement from cooperating with federal agencies to verify immigration status or grants immunity to immigrants to remain in a city unlawfully, according to a copy of the bill.

It would also prohibit policies that require local police to get a warrant or a judge's order to work with immigration enforcement.

Bevin said the proposed bill, sponsored by Sen. Danny Carroll, R-Paducah, and Rep. John Blanton, R-Saylersville, is not about immigration. It's about increased cooperation, he said.

New Asylum Rule Is Meant to Save Lives

On Monday, the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security announced a new rule regarding U.S. asylum laws. This comes in the wake of massive numbers of foreign migrants exploiting America’s asylum system as a means of de facto immigration. It comes also as Democrats in Congress have been steadfast in opposing any legislative solution to the border crisis, as the party has essentially adopted an open-borders policy.

The new rule would bar foreign nationals from receiving asylum in the U.S. if they have not first applied for asylum in an intermediary country, which in many current cases would be Mexico or another Central American country.

In announcing the new rule, Attorney General William Barr noted that the administration’s intention is to uphold the spirit of America’s asylum system. “The United States is a generous country but is being completely overwhelmed by the burdens associated with apprehending and processing hundreds of thousands of aliens along the southern border,” he said. “This Rule will decrease forum shopping by economic migrants and those who seek to exploit our asylum system to obtain entry to the United States — while ensuring that no one is removed from the United States who is more likely than not to be tortured or persecuted on account of a protected ground.”


Booker: Trump ‘Fanning the Flames of Racial Violence’

On Monday’s broadcast of CNN’s “The Lead,” 2020 presidential candidate Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) reacted to President Trump’s tweets about Democrat congresswomen by stating that President Trump is engaging in language that is “clearly bigoted, vile, dangerous” and is “literally fanning the flames of racial violence.”

Booker stated, “My reaction is that this is clearly bigoted, vile, dangerous language. This is a president that’s trafficking in the same kind of toxic tropes that white supremacists use on their platforms, what they proffer to…attack Americans..."

Trump: Democrats Too ‘Petrified’ to Confront ‘Anti-USA, Pro-Terrorist’ Squad

President Donald Trump on Tuesday said the far-left Democrat “Squad” has uttered some of the most “vile, hateful, and disgusting things” ever said by a lawmaker on Capitol Hill and party leadership is unwilling to take them one due to fear of the “radical left.”

“The Democrat Congresswomen have been spewing some of the most vile, hateful, and disgusting things ever said by a politician in the House or Senate, & yet they get a free pass and a big embrace from the Democrat Party,” the president wrote on Twitter.

“Horrible anti-Israel, anti-USA, pro-terrorist & public shouting of the F…word, among many other terrible things, and the petrified Dems run for the hills,” he added.


Ninth Circuit Rules for Trump in Sanctuary Cities Case

Attorney General Bill Barr can implement President Donald Trump’s decision to withhold federal funding from “sanctuary cities” that attempt to thwart federal immigration laws, the Ninth Circuit appeals court ruled on Friday.

The Trump administration is denying some federal law enforcement grant money to sanctuary cities. Los Angeles challenged that decision in federal court, arguing that the decision violates federal law and limits on Congress’s authority under the Spending Clause of the U.S. Constitution.

A 1994 federal law authorizes the Department of Justice (DOJ) “to provide a range of federal assistance to state and local law enforcement,” Judge Sandra Ikuta wrote on Friday, describing DOJ’s administering “a competitive grant program that allocates a limited pool of funds.”

Congress’s law “linked to the goal of enhancing the crime prevention function of state and local law enforcement through working with the community,” the San Francisco-based court continued.


If You Can't Beat 'Em, Call 'Em Racist

Veteran journalist Brit Hume weighed in on the uproar over President Donald Trump’s latest bomb-throwing: “Trump’s ‘go back’ comments were nativist, xenophobic, counterfactual and politically stupid. But they simply do not meet the standard definition of racist, a word so recklessly flung around these days that its actual meaning is being lost.”

Many grassroots Americans would vehemently disagree with Hume’s first sentence, and we’ll come back to that. It was his second sentence that resonated. Hume even cited the Merriam-Webster’s definition of racism to show that Trump’s comments had nothing to do with race. Hilariously — and pathetically, in a sign of the times — Merriam-Webster replied with a lengthy explanation about how “the lexicographer’s role” isn’t to define “how some may feel [words] should be used,” while warning that “it is prudent to recognize that quoting from a dictionary is unlikely to either mollify or persuade the person with whom one is arguing.”

In other words, words have no meaning if facts conflict with your triggered feelings.

Nolte: Trump’s Bold Truth-Telling About ‘The Squad’ Makes Free Speech Great Again

Is it President Trump’s fault the Four Harridans of the Dempocalypse are “women of color?”

If you have enough of your own mind left after decades of being socialized by the media into believing everything is racist except actual racism, you are keenly aware that the media, Democrats, and Never Trump Kooks are acting as though it’s Trump’s fault The Jew-Hating Squad — which is made up of freshmen Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) — is a not a bunch of straight, white males.

All Trump did, all he is guilty of is telling the truth about how horrible these women are — how they appease terrorists; how they smear America as a country filled with concentration camps; how they destroy tens of thousands of jobs in New York; how they’re raging anti-Semites who despise Jews; how they’re preening, wannabe dictators desperate for personal power through socialism; and how, yes, they are straight-up racists…

But it is Trump who is attacked as a racist — even though, you know, he never mentioned race.

Answer me this question: What race is he denigrating?

I’m sorry, but Trump is not responsible for the color of another person’s skin. So what he is really doing is the least racist thing any American can do, which is to treat these villains as he would anyone else who holds their toxic beliefs.

If you think Trump singles out only “people of color,” ask the straightest, squarest, lily-white males in the free world — ask Jeb Bush, Justin Amash, Bill Kristol, Joe Scarborough, Ben Sasse, Jeff Flake, Paul Ryan, and Mitt Romney about that.


New documents revisit questions about Rep. Ilhan Omar's marriage history

New investigative documents released by a state agency have given fresh life to lingering questions about the marital history of Rep. Ilhan Omar and whether she once married a man — possibly her own brother — to skirt immigration laws.

Omar has denied the allegations in the past, dismissing them as “baseless rumors” first raised in an online Somali politics forum and championed by conservative bloggers during her 2016 campaign for the Minnesota House. But she said little then or since about Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, the former husband who swept into her life in 2009 before a 2011 separation.

The questions surfaced again this month in a state probe of campaign finance violations showing that Omar filed federal taxes in 2014 and 2015 with her current husband, Ahmed Hirsi, while she was still legally married to but separated from Elmi.

Although she has legally corrected the discrepancy, she has declined to say anything about how or why it happened.

The new documents also detail the Omar campaign’s efforts to keep the story of her marriage to Elmi out of the press, arguing that detailed coverage would legitimize the accusations and invade her privacy.


Democrat ‘Squad’ Refuses to Denounce Violent Extremism by Antifa, Al-Qaeda

Members of the Democrat “Squad” were caught on camera Monday repeatedly refusing to condemn terrorism.

In the video below, you can watch as socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) refuses to condemn a terrorist attack committed by the left-wing terrorist group Antifa over the weekend at a migrant detention center.

This might be the first time in modern history where a sitting lawmaker refused to condemn a terror attack. I’ve never seen anything like it.

What’s more, the Antifa terrorist, who was shot dead by police as he tried to firebomb a federal detention center in Tacoma, Washington, appeared to be directly inspired by Ocasio-Crazy and her inflammatory lies comparing American detention centers to Nazi concentration camps.

According to various reports, the terrorist left behind a manifesto that in part read:

"It’s time to take action against the forces of evil. evil says one life is worth less than another. evil says the flow of commerce is our purpose here. evil says concentration camps for folks deemed lesser are necessary. the handmaid of evil says the concentration camps should be more humane."

But Ocasio-Crazy still refused to condemn this act, a terrorist act against the United States government fueled by her incendiary rhetoric.

Trump abortion rule deals 'devastating blow' to Planned Parenthood, group says

The Trump administration stopped taxpayer dollars from going to abortion referrals at publicly funded family planning centers on Monday.

Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion provider, sued the administration, along with 20 states and the District of Columbia, in an attempt to stop Health and Human Services, or HHS, from diverting Title X family planning funding going to abortions. But the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, with two judges appointed by Trump, rejected the plea.

“This is a devastating blow to the 4 million patients who obtain birth control, cancer screenings, and other essential care through Title X,” the organization tweeted.

Ahead of a Tuesday HHS conference, the administration formally notified clinics that it will begin to enforce the ban on abortion referrals as well as a requirement that clinics maintain separate finances from facilities that provide abortions. Another requirement, that abortion facilities cannot be under the same roof as family planning clinics, will take effect next year.

'Bill de Blasio must go - now': NY Post demands Governor Cuomo REMOVES the Mayor

The New York Post has called for Mayor Bill de Blasio to be removed from his position because he 'does not care' about the people of the city.

In an extraordinary editorial, the publication claimed de Blasio is responsible for the deaths of children because of child services failures and is also to blame for the growing number of homeless on city streets.

It called on Governor Andrew Cuomo to remove de Blasio, 'for the good of the city'.

It also highlighted how De Blasio gave his wife $850 million for her ThriveNYC mental-health initiative, and when questioned by the City Council, 'she couldn’t come up with one thing it succeeded in doing'.

The editorial comes after de Blasio defended being 1,000-miles away in Iowa when 73,000 New Yorkers were left without power during a blackout on Saturday night.

No Injuries In Small Plane Crash In Ocean City

Peter Thiel: FBI, CIA Must Investigate ‘Treasonous’ Google

Billionaire investor, Facebook board member, and Trump supporter Peter Thiel recently called on the FBI and CIA to investigate Google for the “seemingly treasonous” act of aiding the Chinese military.

Axios reports that Peter Thiel, the billionaire Silicon Valley investor, Facebook board member, and longtime supporter of President Donald Trump, called on the FBI and CIA to investigate Google for allegedly aiding the Chinese military during his speech at the recent National Conservatism Conference.

During the speech, Thiel noted “three questions that should be asked” by the federal government of tech giant Google:

Number one, how many foreign intelligence agencies have infiltrated your Manhattan Project for AI?

Number two, does Google’s senior management consider itself to have been thoroughly infiltrated by Chinese intelligence?

Number three, is it because they consider themselves to be so thoroughly infiltrated that they have engaged in the seemingly treasonous decision to work with the Chinese military and not with the US military… because they are making the sort of bad, short-term rationalistic [decision] that if the technology doesn’t go out the front door, it gets stolen out the backdoor anyway?

Former Obama Officials Admit Trump Admin Didn’t Delay Tubman $20 Bill

Despite numerous liberal politicians and pundits excoriating the Trump administration for delaying the Harriet Tubman $20 bill, former Obama administration officials recently revealed there was no actual delay.

The Trump administration announced in May that it would not replace President Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill with Tubman by the 2020 deadline announced by the Obama administration. "The primary reason we've looked at redesigning the currency is for counterfeiting issues. Based upon this, the $20 bill will now not come out until 2028," Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin explained during a congressional hearing.

The "delay" was blasted by a number of high-profile Democratic politicians, including Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, who called it "unnecessary" and "an insult to the hopes of millions."

FLASHBACK: Obama said in 2014 crime and poverty not enough for asylum claim

President Barack Obama said in 2014 that seeking asylum in the United States was "narrowly defined," and likely wouldn't apply to most people seeking asylum at the southern border. He said in a press conference, "Under U.S. law, we admit a certain number of refugees from all around the world based on some pretty narrow criteria. Typically, refugee status is not granted just based on economic need or because a family lives in a bad neighborhood or poverty. It's typically defined, fairly narrowly. You have a state, for example, that was targeting a political activist and they need to get out of the country for fear of prosecution or even death."

Obama's interpretation of U.S. immigration and asylum law contradicts the feelings of many current Democratic lawmakers who have called for the decriminalization of unauthorized border crossings, the closing of migrant detention centers, and the abolition of Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Obama further stated of the migrants at the southern border, "There may be some narrow circumstances in which there is a humanitarian or refugee status that a family might be eligible for. If that were the case, it would be better for them to apply in-country, rather than take a very dangerous journey all the way up to Texas to make those same claims. But, I think it's important to recognize that would not necessarily accommodate a large number of additional migrants."

Biden cancer nonprofit suspends operations

WASHINGTON — A nonprofit foundation set up by Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden that relied on health care world partnerships to speed a cure for cancer has suspended its operations, it announced Monday.

The Biden Cancer Initiative’s sudden move to cease its activities comes two years after it was founded in 2017 by the former vice president and his wife, Jill, as a philanthropic extension of Biden’s stewardship of the White House Cancer Moonshot program. Biden, who on Monday was detailing his health care plan , headed the Obama administration effort to accelerate a cancer cure in tribute to his son Beau, who died of the disease in 2015.

The nonprofit promoted nearly 60 partnerships with drug companies, health care firms, charities and other organizations that pledged more than $400 million to improve cancer treatment.


The black woman who will be the next 007

Since Daniel Craig announced he was standing down as James Bond, debate has raged whether the next 007 should be a woman, or black.

Now The Mail on Sunday can reveal that she will be both – thanks to the intervention of feminist TV writer Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

In what's been called a 'popcorn-dropping moment', British star Lashana Lynch, will be given Bond's licence to kill in the 25th movie in the franchise, currently being shot in Italy and the UK.

However, traditionalists can relax: she's not the new Bond, but a new character who takes over his secret agent number after he leaves MI6.'
