U.S. seizes 13-ton shipment of human hair products from China on strong suspicion of forced labor

Nearly 13 tons of wigs and human hair products have been seized by U.S. Customs and Border Protection over fears that they were made through forced labor in China.

The CBP issued the detainment order for all shipments arriving from Lop County Meixin Hair Product Co. Ltd. based in Xinjiang, China. Officials believe they have strong evidence the wigs and hair care products are linked to forced labor, potentially from the Uighur concentration camps in the communist country.

Several female survivors of the Uighur subjugation testify that women's heads are shaved when they are imprisoned in the camps, something that National Security Council spokesman John Ullyot says is "highly suspicious" given the recent shipment.

"The production of these goods constitutes a very serious human rights violation, and the detention order is intended to send a clear and direct message to all entities seeking to do business with the United States that illicit and inhumane practices will not be tolerated in U.S. supply chains," Brenda Smith, executive assistant commissioner of the CBP Office of Trade, said in a statement.

Voddie Baucham warns: 'Black Lives Matter' is a trademark phrase designed to DEHUMANIZE and USE black people

"I'm not going to use that phrase, because I love black people. I love being black."

Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to explain why he agrees with Vice President Mike Pence's refusal to say the phrase "Black Lives Matter."

Baucham, who recently drew national attention when his sermon titled "Ethnic Gnosticism" resurfaced online, said the phrase has been trademarked by a dangerous, violent, Marxist movement that doesn't care about black lives except to use them as political pawns.

"We have to separate this movement from the issues," Baucham warned. "I know that [Black Lives Matter] is a phrase that is part of an organization. It is a trademark phrase. And it's a phrase designed to useblack people.

"That phrase dehumanizes black people, because it makes them pawns in a game that has nothing whatsoever to do with black people and their dignity. And has everything to do with a divisive agenda that is bigger than black people. That's why I'm not going to use that phrase, because I love black people. I love being black."

'It's just unconscionable': Acclaimed environmentalist explains his STUNNING apology for 'climate scare'

'Apocalyptic environmentalism' has become a TOXIC religion

Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.


Mob Rule Imperils Western Civilization. Now’s the Time for Courage and Leadership.

The war on history has spread across our country and has even spilled over to other parts of the Western world.

Now, on a daily basis, we see scenes of lawless mobs attacking and tearing down statues, and defacing monuments of every type—often as authorities stand idly by.

But this violence has hardly been reserved just for statues.

After toppling a statue of an abolitionist who gave his life to the cause as a member of the Union Army, a mob in Madison, Wisconsin, mercilessly beat a Wisconsin Democrat state senator who supported the protests.


California Tried To Ban Yet Another Firearm Type

By now, anyone who follows gun rights news knows that California isn’t a great place to be a gun person. Your choices on handguns are severely limited to just what’s on a particular list, a list that is shrinking as models are discontinued and no longer sold, and your choices of tactical rifles are even more so. Sure, most hunting weapons are untouched, but the Second Amendment doesn’t say a damn thing about hunting.

However, there’s a kind of firearm that made it through the cracks of California state law. It’s not quite a pistol, not quite a rifle. It’s made life in California just a bit easier for some.

So, of course, California lawmakers are looking to ban it.

California lawmakers this week are poised to use a budget maneuver to ban a new type of gun in a move that drew bipartisan criticism in a legislative committee hearing Wednesday evening.

Gov. Gavin Newsom’s administration describes the firearm as an assault-style weapon that’s a cross between a rifle and a pistol. It doesn’t neatly fit into either category, however, because it lacks a shoulder stock needed to be a rifle and has a barrel too long to be a pistol.

Representatives for Newsom argued at a Senate Budget Committee hearing that the gun was designed to circumvent California gun control laws and that the policy change would close the loophole.

Jay Jacobson, president of the company that manufactures the firearm, disputed the administration’s characterization of the gun. He said the gun his company Franklin Armory manufactures, called a Title 1, is in a separate category from rifles and pistols and that the company has worked for years to ensure the weapon would be legal to sell in California.

Several lawmakers raised concerns about the move at the Wednesday hearing, arguing the ban should have been considered in a standalone bill, not as part of the sprawling budget deal that encompasses 19 pieces of complicated legislation.

“It should be a policy bill — banning of a new class of firearm,” said Republican Sen. Melissa Melendez from Lake Elsinore. “This isn’t a budget matter.”

So why wasn’t it?

High School Runner Who Lost to Transgender Athletes Will Compete in College

By now, millions know the story of Selina Soule, the high school track star from Connecticut who missed qualifying for the New England track and field regionals by two spots in her top event. Those two spots were taken by biological boys who identify as girls.

Soule, who is wise beyond her years, was well aware that she could face consequences for speaking out about being forced to compete against biological males. But she recognized a greater need.

Little did Soule know that she would do more than speak out. She became one of the most well-known faces of the movement to protect women’s sports from being erased.

A video about her for The Daily Signal, which I produced, attracted millions of views. After it was published, my inbox was flooded with emails from strangers asking how they could support her.


Gold Will “Trend Toward $10,000 Per Ounce Or Higher” Over The Next Four Years

You’re likely aware of the price action in gold lately. Gold has rallied from $1,591 per ounce on April 1 to $1,782 per ounce as of today. That’s a 12% gain in less than three months.

My earlier forecast was that gold would hit $1,776 by the Fourth of July. I guess I was a bit early!

Today’s price of $1,782 per ounce is the highest since 2012 and a 70% gain from the low of $1,050 per ounce at the end of the last bear market in December 2015.

The history of gold bull markets (1971–80 and 1999–2011) shows that the most powerful gains come toward the end of the bull market, not at the beginning.


How Leftists’ Critical Race Theory Poisons Our Discussion of Racism

I recently revived my Instagram account in an attempt to kill time during the COVID-19 lockdown.

Until three weeks ago, my Instagram feed was filled with cooking photos, quarantine home projects, and the occasional funny meme.

But shortly after George Floyd’s horrifying May 25 killing, my Instagram feed changed course and was filled with commentary on police brutality and race relations.

I’m glad that those I follow on Instagram are speaking out about race relations and abuse at the hands of police officers. But the casual and pervasive use of leftist language to talk about race relations is worrisome.


Judge Napolitano calls Ghislaine Maxwell the 'living version' of 'Jeffrey Epstein's little black book'

Fox News senior judicial analyst says feds 'want Prince Andrew [and] she's the key to Prince Andrew'

Fox News senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano joined "The Daily Briefing" Thursday to discuss the arrest of Jeffrey Epstein confidante Ghislaine Maxwell and break down the charges against her.

Maxwell, who was arrested Thursday morning in Bradford, N.H., is charged with conspiracy to entice minors to travel to engage in illegal sex acts, enticement of a minor to to travel to engage in illegal sex acts, conspiracy to transport minors with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity, transportation of a minor with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity, and two counts of perjury. She faces up to 35 years in prison if convicted of all charges.

“The maximum penalty [for the perjury and conspiracy charges] is five years [each] and the indication would be no time in jail," Napolitano explained. "But the enticing and transporting of minors across interstate lines for sexual purposes, for which they as minors cannot legally consent, is so serious that there is no statute of limitations on it ... The Congress is so determined to authorize the FBI to go after his kind of behavior that it removed the statute of limitations."


Two men arrested over fire at Wendy's where Rayshard Brooks was killed

Two men including a George Floyd protest organizer have been arrested for arson over the blaze at the Wendy's where Rayshard Brooks was shot dead by cops.

John Wade, 33, and Chisom Kingston, 23, were taken into custody overnight in connection with the June 13 fire at the fast food joint in Atlanta, Georgia, authorities confirmed Thursday.

This takes the arrests over the fire up to three after Brooks' girlfriend Natalie White, 29, was arrested on suspicion of setting the fire last month. White has since been released on bond.


Three Glaring Problems With The Russian Taliban "Bounty" Story

There seems to be a lack of sourcing and a big whiff of politics, say former intelligence officers...

A bombshell report published by The New York Times Friday alleges that Russia paid dollar bounties to the Taliban in Afghanistan to kill U.S troops. Obscured by an extremely bungled White House press response, there are at least three serious flaws with the reporting.

The article alleges that GRU, a top-secret unit of Russian military intelligence, offered the bounty in payment for every U.S. soldier killed in Afghanistan, and that at least one member of the U.S. military was alleged to have been killed in exchange for the bounties. According to the paper, U.S. intelligence concluded months ago that the Russian unit involved in the bounties was also linked to poisonings, assassination attempts and other covert operations in Europe. The Times reports that United States intelligence officers and Special Operations forces in Afghanistan came to this conclusion about Russian bounties some time in 2019.

According to the anonymous sources that spoke with the paper’s reporters, the White House and President Trump were briefed on a range of potential responses to Moscow’s provocations, including sanctions, but the White House had authorized no further action.

Immediately after the news broke Friday, the Trump administration denied the report—or rather, they denied that the President was briefed, depending on which of the frenetic, contradictory White House responses you read.

Traditionally, the President of the United States receives unconfirmed, and sometimes even raw intelligence, in the President’s Daily Brief, or PDB. Trump notoriously does not read his PDB, according to reports.

Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe said in a statement Saturday night that neither Trump nor Vice President Pence “were ever briefed on any intelligence alleged by the New York Times in its reporting yesterday.”

On Sunday night, Trump tweeted that not only was he not told about the alleged intelligence, but that it was not credible.“Intel just reported to me that they did not find this info credible, and therefore did not report it to me or @VP” Pence, Trump wrote Sunday night on Twitter.

Ousted National Security Advisor John Bolton said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday that Trump was probably claiming ignorance in order to justify his administration’s lack of response.

“He can disown everything if nobody ever told him about it,” said Bolton.


Judge Orders Jeffrey Epstein Accuser To Destroy Files

Jeffrey Epstein accuser Virginia Giuffre has been ordered by a US District Judge to destroy files believed to contain the names of Epstein's associates - because they were "improperly obtained.'

Senior US District Judge Loretta Preska said on Wednesday that Giuffre's attorneys would need to provide proof that the documents had been destroyed, adding that "Counsel shall submit an affidavit detailing the steps taken to do so," according toNewsweek.

Preska noted that a protective order governing the 'improperly obtained' documents only applied during a civil lawsuit proceeding which has been settled.

Preska's ruling came after a request by attorney Alan Dershowitz to gain access to the documents. Giuffre has claimed that Dershowitz was one of the men Epstein forced her to have sex with. In response, Dershowitz sued Giuffre for defamation in 2019. Dershowitz claimed that obtaining the Epstein files would be an asset to his defense.

Preska said in her ruling that Dershowitz's desire to see all of the files "with over a thousand docket entries" was not a "targeted strike" but a "carpet bombing." -Newsweek

In September 2019, an attorney for Epstein's alleged 'madam,' Ghislaine Maxwell - who was arrested on Thursday, told Preska that that there are "hundreds" of people named in some 2,000 pages of documents.

Did Susan Rice Admit Obama is Guilty of Dereliction of Duty

Despite the fact that the allegation that Trump ignored intelligence on alleged Russian bounties on U.S. troops has been debunked, the left is still clinging to the story, hoping it will be their next Trump/Russia collusion hoax. Barack Obama’s former national security adviser Susan Rice recently penned an op-ed in the New York Times, essentially disputing the claims that Trump wasn’t aware of the intelligence. “As a former national security adviser, I find it exceedingly difficult to believe that no one told Mr. Trump about this intelligence,” she claimed.

Here’s what should have happened. Had I, as national security adviser, received even “raw” reporting that Russia was paying to kill U.S. service members, I would have walked straight into the Oval Office to brief the president.

Contrary to the spin-masters in the White House today, I would not have waited until we had absolute certainty. I would have said, “Mr. President, I want to make sure you are aware that we have troubling reporting that Russia is paying the Taliban to kill our forces in Afghanistan. I will work with the intelligence community to ensure the information is solid. In the meantime, I will convene the national security team to get you some options for how to respond to this apparent major escalation in Russia’s hostile actions.”

If later the president decided, as Mr. Trump did, that he wanted to talk with President Vladimir Putin of Russia at least six times over the next several weeks and invite him to join the Group of 7 summit over the objections of our allies, I would have thrown a red flag: “Mr. President, I want to remind you that we believe the Russians are killing American soldiers. This is not the time to hand Putin an olive branch. It’s the time to punish him.”
This is what would have happened in any prior administration of either political party.

According to Rice, “That it apparently did not is deeply troubling and raises myriad questions.”


The Man who Correctly Predicted President Trump’s 2016 Win Predicts President Trump has a 91% Chance of Being Reelected in 2020

Professor Helmut Norpoth from Stony Brook University told Lou Dobbs on August 16th, 2016, that Donald Trump had an 87% chance of winning the 2016 Presidential election.

Professor Norpoth is a political science professor at Long Island’s Stoney Brook University.

His model has been correct since 1996 on predicting the popular vote.

We reported that his 2016 forecast rested on a model that tracks cyclical movements in American presidential elections. It goes back to 1828, when popular voting became widespread and the two-party system took hold. Over nearly two centuries, American presidential elections have exhibited a distinct cycle. This is not the pattern associated with partisan realignments that may last 30 years or so, but a shorter cycle that relates to party control of the White House.

Norpoth made the prediction in March and says he still stands by his election prediction.


Who is Kimberly Gardner, St. Louis prosecutor investigating gun-toting couple?

Gardner described encounter as “a violent assault” against the protesters

The standoff between a gun-toting couple who stood in their front yard and protesters who marched through the private neighborhood is under investigation, according to St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kimberly Gardner's office.

Gardner, who was elected in 2016 on a platform of reforming the criminal justice system, was reportedly backed by liberal billionaire George Soros.

Since being elected, Gardner has butted heads publicly with Missouri’s Republican attorney general and faced lawsuits for allegedly ignoring public records requests.


1842 Slave Revolt in the Cherokee Nation

The 1842 Slave Revolt in the Cherokee Nation was the largest escape of a group of slaves to occur in the Cherokee Nation, in what was then Indian Territory. The slave revolt started on November 15, 1842, when a group of 20 African-American slaves owned by the Cherokee escaped and tried to reach Mexico, where slavery had been abolished in 1829. Along their way south, they were joined by 15 slaves escaping from the Creek Nation in Indian Territory. (Date inconsistent with later assertion)

The fugitives met with two slave catchers taking a family of eight slave captives back to the Choctaw Nation. The fugitives killed the hunters and allowed the family to join their party. Although an Indian party had captured and killed some of the slaves near the beginning of their flight, the Cherokee sought reinforcements. They raised an armed group of more than 100 of their and Choctaw warriors to pursue and capture the fugitives. Five slaves were later executed for killing the two slave catchers.

What has been described as "the most spectacular act of rebellion against slavery" among the Cherokee, the 1842 event inspired subsequent slave rebellions in the Indian Territory.[1] But, in the aftermath of this escape, the Cherokee Nation passed stricter slave codes, expelled freedmen from the territory, and established a 'rescue' (slave-catching) company to try to prevent additional losses.


Feds arrest 'ringleader' in attack on Andrew Jackson statue

THIS IS NOT GOOD: In May Reports Came Out that Bill Clinton Dated Ghislaine Maxwell – Now She’s Under Arrest – What Next?

In May a new book claimed that Bill Clinton had an affair with Ghislaine Maxwell, Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged madam.

The New York Post reported:

Bill Clinton had an affair with British-born socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, who is accused of helping recruit underage victims for notorious pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, according to a blockbuster new book.

The ex-president — who denies cheating on wife Hillary Clinton with Maxwell — reportedly engaged in the romps during overseas trips on Epstein’s private plane, a customized Boeing 727 that’s since become known as the “Lolita Express.”

The nation’s 42nd head of state also repeatedly sneaked out to visit Maxwell at her Upper East Side townhouse, as detailed in this exclusive excerpt.

That was less than two months ago.


Man Charged For Riding Wild Horse On Assateague; Officials Offer Safety Reminders Ahead Of Weekend

ASSATEAGUE — The arrival of the Fourth of July weekend, along with one individual who this week thought it was a good idea to actually mount one of the horses at Assateague provides a good opportunity to remind the public the island’s most famed residents are wild and potentially dangerous and should be given plenty of space.

On Wednesday, a frequent visitor to Assateague came across a group of young men petting two stallions near their vehicle along the roadside on Assateague. The concerned visitor reportedly advised the young men the horses are wild and can bite and kick, telling them about the 40-foot rule for giving the wild horses plenty of space.

The young men asked the visitor what they should do when the horses walk right up to humans and the concerned visitor told them it was best to walk away and avoid interacting with them. One of the young men reportedly said he worked on a ranch and knew how to handle horses. The visitor left the area and returned a short time later to find the “ranch hand” riding on the back of one of the stallions.

The visitor immediately called park rangers and they arrived quickly, but by then the group of young people had left the area. The witness was able to send pictures of the incident along with pictures of the vehicle’s license plate to park rangers. On Thursday, National Park Service officials confirmed the incident and said the park rangers were able to locate the individual, who has been charged appropriately.


Harris Helps Lead Effort on School Re-opening Guidelines

WASHINGTON, DC: Rep. Andy Harris, M.D. (MD-01) issued the following statement after becoming an original co-sponsor of House Resolution 1026, which urges that local jurisdictions be empowered to make the decisions on re-opening schools:

“We know that the pandemic conditions in Baltimore City, Prince George's County, or Montgomery County are far different than those in other areas of the nation, the state, or on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. In the First Congressional District today there are still dozens of zip codes that don’t even have one confirmed COVID case. Therefore, a blanket nationwide or even a statewide policy decision on re-opening our schools is a bad approach that will lead to unnecessary closures and an undue burden on parents. Some of President Trump’s leading experts on the White House Coronavirus Task Force, like Dr. Fauci and Dr. Redfield, as well as former FDA Commissioner Gottlieb, who advises Maryland on COVID reopening issues, have already confirmed that these decisions on schools re-opening should be made at the local level. This week, the American Academy of Pediatrics has also emphasized the importance of re-opening schools in the fall. Therefore, I am proud to co-sponsor this important House resolution that urges just that. Many areas of the country, including parts of Maryland, can reopen their schools safely this fall.”

The resolution’s text can be read here.

Court Uphold's MD's Taking of Rapid Fire Trigger Activators

In a sharply split, 2-1 decision, a panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit has held that Maryland may ban the possession of "Rapid Fire Trigger Activators" by existing owners without paying just compensation under Fifth Amendment or the Maryland Constitution. The majority ruled that no just compensation was owed to existing, lawful owners because the ban “does not require owners of rapid fire trigger activators to turn them over to the Government or to a third party.” In short, as far as this majority is concerned, the State is free to ban the possession of any personal property without paying just compensation unless the State puts the property into its own pocket or the pocket of a third party. If that is the law, then no personal property, of any kind, is safe from the grasping clutches of the General Assembly. For example, the State could ban possession of your existing car and not pay a dime. The dissenting opinion ably demolishes the majority's reasoning. Needless to say, we will be seeking further review. You can read the ruling HERE. Stay tuned.

Biden says he won't hold rallies due to coronavirus

Biden told reporters: “I’m going to follow the docs’ orders. Not just for me but for the country."

Contrasting himself with President Trump, presumptive Democratic challenger Joe Biden on Tuesday said that he won’t be holding campaign rallies going forward due to the coronavirus.

When asked if would hold large-scale rallies -- which public health experts warn against -- Biden told reporters: “I’m going to follow the docs’ orders. Not just for me but for the country. And that means I’m not going to be holding rallies.”

And the former vice president -- holding a news conference for the first time in nearly three months -- acknowledged that latest “polling data is very good.” But with more than four months to go until the November election, Biden also said “it’s really early” and said he didn’t “want to jinx myself.”

The 77-year old also pushed back against claims by Trump and his campaign that Biden’s lost his mental sharpness, saying he’s “constantly testing” for cognitive decline. And he stressed that he’s anxious to compare his mental capabilities with those of the president -- and that he “can hardly wait” to debate Trump in autumn.


Black woman punches white cop and then gets knocked out by a black cop. In Baltimore!!
