Venezuelans Accuse Socialist Regime of Selling Red Cross Humanitarian Aid

Red Cross announces May aid shipment to Venezuela

Venezuelans protested at the Red Cross headquarters in Caracas on Monday accusing the government of selling some of the organization’s recently arrived humanitarian aid.

The Red Cross made its first delivery of emergency aid to the country last week after the Maduro regime finally caved in to international pressure and accepted aid. The regime had previously denied the existence of any humanitarian crisis and rejected offers of food and medicine. There are already signs the socialist regime has meddled with the aid’s distribution, leading many to believe they have sold it for a profit.

“The children’s hospital was one of the hospitals visited by the Red Cross to assess the needs of each institution and it wasn’t put on the list to allow the entry of humanitarian aid,” Margoth Monasterios, President of the Doctors Union, told reporters at the protest. “What happened is they met with the Ministry of Health, who determined which hospitals and centers the aid would go to.”

The second round of humanitarian aid is expected to arrive on May 8, which includes surgical equipment they hope will be able to benefit around 650,000 Venezuelans.

“This humanitarian aid that is arriving at institutions specifically for use in operations,” contended Monasterios. “The medicines have not yet arrived, despite the fact that on the 8th May a ship is arriving with new equipment.” Read more: https://www.breitbart.com/latin-america/2019/04/23/venezuelans-accuse-socialist-regime-selling-red-cross-humanitarian-aid/

Trump suggests Mexican soldiers confronted US troops as cover for drug smuggling

President Trump in a tweet Wednesday morning accused Mexican soldiers involved in a recent confrontation with U.S. troops along the border of aiding drug cartels.

“Mexico’s Soldiers recently pulled guns on our National Guard Soldiers, probably as a diversionary tactic for drug smugglers on the Border. Better not happen again!” Trump warned.

“We are now sending ARMED SOLDIERS to the Border. Mexico is not doing nearly enough in apprehending & returning!” he continued.

His tweet came hours after it was reported that two U.S. soldiers were stopped earlier this month by Mexican soldiers who thought they had crossed the border in a remote part of Texas, south of the local border wall section but north of the actual physical border.

The Associated Press reported Tuesday that Mexican troops departed after a brief conversation with the U.S. forces, and a subsequent inquiry by Customs and Border Protection (CBP) found that the Mexican soldiers believed themselves to be on home territory when the confrontation occurred.

During the incident, a Mexican soldier reportedly confiscated a service pistol from one of the U.S. troops, depositing it inside one of the U.S. vehicles.

A Northern Command spokesperson confirmed the incident to The Hill, writing “though they were south of the border fence, U.S. soldiers remained in U.S. territory, north of the actual border.”

“After a brief discussion between the soldiers from the two nations, the Mexican military members departed the area. The U.S. soldiers immediately contacted CBP, who responded quickly. Throughout the incident, the U.S. soldiers followed all established procedures and protocols.”

U.S. Navy drafting new guidelines for reporting UFOs

The service says it has also ‘provided a series of briefings by senior Naval Intelligence officials as well as aviators who reported hazards to aviation safety.’

By BRYAN BENDERhttps://www.politico.com/story/2019/04/23/us-navy-guidelines-reporting-ufos-1375290

The U.S. Navy is drafting new guidelines for pilots and other personnel to report encounters with “unidentified aircraft,” a significant new step in creating a formal process to collect and analyze the unexplained sightings — and destigmatize them.

The previously unreported move is in response to a series of sightings of unknown, highly advanced aircraft intruding on Navy strike groups and other sensitive military formations and facilities, the service says.

“There have been a number of reports of unauthorized and/or unidentified aircraft entering various military-controlled ranges and designated air space in recent years,” the Navy said in a statement in response to questions from POLITICO. “For safety and security concerns, the Navy and the [U.S. Air Force] takes these reports very seriously and investigates each and every report.

“As part of this effort,” it added, “the Navy is updating and formalizing the process by which reports of any such suspected incursions can be made to the cognizant authorities. A new message to the fleet that will detail the steps for reporting is in draft.”

To be clear, the Navy isn’t endorsing the idea that its sailors have encountered alien spacecraft. But it is acknowledging there have been enough strange aerial sightings by credible and highly trained military personnel that they need to be recorded in the official record and studied — rather than dismissed as some kooky phenomena from the realm of science-fiction.

Chris Mellon, a former Pentagon intelligence official and ex-staffer on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said establishing a more formal means of reporting what the military now calls “unexplained aerial phenomena” — rather than “unidentified flying objects” — would be a “sea change.”

“Right now, we have situation in which UFOs and UAPs are treated as anomalies to be ignored rather than anomalies to be explored,” he said. “We have systems that exclude that information and dump it.”

For example, Mellon said “in a lot of cases [military personnel] don’t know what to do with that information — like satellite data or a radar that sees something going Mach 3. They will dump [the data] because that is not a traditional aircraft or missile.”

The development comes amid growing interest from members of Congress following revelations by POLITICO and the New York Times in late 2017 that the Pentagon established a dedicated office inside the Defense Intelligence Agency to study UAPs at the urging of several senators who secretly set aside appropriations for the effort.

US deploys two carrier strike groups in Mediterranean – first time since 2016

Apr 23, 2019 @ 18:50Diane ShalemIran, oil sanctions, Two US carriers in Mediterranean

The John C. Stennis and Abraham Lincoln carrier strike groups have joined the US Mediterranean 6th Fleet for the first time in more than two years. This was announced on Monday, April 22, by the 6th Fleet commander, Vice Adm Lisa Franchetti.  DEBKAfile’s military sources add that this unusual concentration of US naval and air might in the region is intended to convey a warning to Iran against striking back at the US or its allies in the region in retribution for tightened Trump administration sanctions on its oil experts. This level of concentrated strength is capable of countering any Iranian attempt to interfere with the oil tanker shipping plying routes to market from the Gulf through the Strait of Hormuz, the Gulf of Aden or the Red Sea. See DEBKAfile’s earlier special report.

Vice Admiral Franchetti commented that it was a rare opportunity for two strike groups to work together alongside key allies and partners in the region. Our sources say she was referring to British, French and Israeli naval forces. The vice admiral, who has served as 6th Fleet commander since early 2018, added: “The dual carrier operations in the Mediterranean showcase the flexibility and scalability maritime forces provide to the joint force, while demonstrating our ironclad commitment to the stability and security of the region.”

Christianity vs Satan & The World – extra news stories!

Co-opting Jesus for unholy purposes
Democrats have been working hard to spin their version of Jesus. Here’s just one example: Many of the party’s presidential hopefuls proclaim, without irony, that anyone who thinks marriage requires a man and a woman are un-Christian “bigots.”

Rev. Graham Warns Buttigieg: Sodomy, Gay ‘Marriage’ Are Sins, Only Christ Can ‘Save Us From Hell’
Reverend Franklin Graham criticized Democratic presidential contender Pete Buttigieg, who is openly gay and “married” to another man, for stressing that God does not belong to a political party while ignoring God’s commandments against homosexual behavior and so-called gay marriage. Without following God’s Word, he said, we have no moral foundation and are at risk of “eternal damnation.”

‘Our Leaders Believe Christians Are the Problem’: Columnists Criticize Leaders for Refusing to Say Sri Lankan ‘Christians’ were attacked
Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are facing criticism after calling Christians who were killed on Easter Sunday in Sri Lanka “Easter worshippers” on their Twitter accounts. “The attacks on tourists and Easter worshippers in Sri Lanka are an attack on humanity. On a day devoted to love, redemption, and renewal, we pray for the victims and stand with the people of Sri Lanka,” Obama tweeted.

Texas School Survey Tells Students ‘Gender Is How a Person Feels’
A recent survey given to all Austin public school students, as young as the third grade, told children, “Sex is what a person is born (sic).

German Lawmakers Denounce Growing Islamic Violence Against Christian Minorities

German lawmakers across the spectrum on Tuesday called for stronger protections of Christian minorities worldwide following the coordinated attacks at several Sri Lanka churches and hotels on Sunday which killed over 300 people, according to Deutsche Welle

Members of German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s conservative Christian Democratic Union (CDU), the liberal Free Democrats (FDP) and Greens all expressed their concern about what they saw as growing violence against Christians.

Germany’s commissioner for religious freedom, Markus Grübel (CDU), told Die Welt newspaper that the Sri Lankan attacks were part of what appeared to be a global trend. –DW

Christians are the target of radical Muslims worldwide,” said Grübel – which he said was “incomprehensible” given “Christianity’s close relation to Islam.” Perhaps he’s referring to the steady Islamisation of Europe?  Read more: https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-04-23/german-lawmakers-denounce-growing-islamic-violence-targeting-christian-minorities

Russian Spy Plane Set To Fly Over America This Week

Earlier this month, it was an incredible sight to see: a Russian Tu-154M-ON (NATO reporting name: “Careless”) reconnaissance plane conducting a surveillance mission over US sensitive military sites — places where even US commercial jets are generally forbidden to fly over, we reported.

A new report Monday from Krasnaya Zvezda (Red Star), translated and reported by Sputnik, said that another Russian military reconnaissance plane will fly over US territory April 22-27.

The Russians will use a Tupolev Tu-214 for the second surveillance mission carried out within the guidelines of the international Treaty on Open Skies, Red Star said, citing Ministry of Defence of the Russian Federation Sergei Ryzhkov.

Online flight tracking software provided by Flightrader24, shows the Tu-214, with the registration number RF-64525, and using an Open Skies call sign, OSY332T, landed in Reykjavik, Iceland on Monday morning. The aircraft took off around noon to continue its journey to the US.

The plane is expected to conduct the reconnaissance mission from Rosecrans Air National Guard Base, in Buchanan County, Missouri this week.

During the maximum flight distance of 3,000 miles, the plane, equipped with sensitive electro-optical cameras, will take high-resolution photos of unspecified military sites. Read more: https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-04-22/russian-spy-plane-set-fly-over-america-week

Saudis Conduct Mass Beheadings Of 37, Mostly Shiites, With Two Crucified

It’s being described as “the largest mass execution of Shiites in the kingdom’s history” — and it didn’t take place in an official US enemy country like Assad’s Syria or Putin’s Russia or even North Korea. On Tuesday Saudi Arabia (where else?) beheaded 37 Saudi citizens, the vast majority of which have been identified as minority Shiites in yet another sectarian-driven mass execution.

Saudi official statements have said the men were put to death on “terrorism-related crimes,” however human rights groups like Amnesty International have pointed to “sham trials” and confessions extracted through torture. Shockingly, authorities went so far as to tie two of the  deceased’s heads and bodies to polls in the manner of a crucifixion, erected as a public warning and deterrent to others.  Prior file photo via Asia News

King Salman personally ratified by royal decree Tuesday’s mass execution, according to Saudi law, just as he did for the prior single day record for mass beheadings, which stands at 47 and occurred on Jan. 2, 2016. The 2016 beheadings included prominent Shiite cleric Nimr al-Nimr, whose death sparked unrest across the Shia Muslim world, especially inside Iran and in eastern Saudi Arabia, home to a sizable Shia minority. 

Nimr’s killing for what many believe was merely his activism advocating for equal Shia rights inside the kingdom, resulted in soaring tensions with Iran and the ransacking of the Saudi Embassy in Tehran, which remains closed to this day. 

This week’s executions of 37 people also included a well known Shia religious leader,  Sheikh Mohammed al-Attiyah, charged with sectarian plotting and anti-government organizing in the western city of Jiddah. The Saudi Interior Ministry painted those executed on Tuesday as being extremists seeking to foster discord and instability in the kingdom. 

However, Middle East analysts and observers were quick to point out the clear anti-Iran message behind the killings. “This is political,” Ali Al-Ahmed of the Gulf Institute in Washington told the AP. “They didn’t have to execute these people, but it’s important for them to ride the American anti-Iranian wave.” Read more: https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-04-23/saudi-arabia-conducts-mass-beheadings-37-mostly-shiites-crucifies-one

A Sign Of The Evil Times We Are Living In: Court Documents Indicate 7,819 Boy Scout Troop Leaders Abused 12,254 Victims

This is a very difficult article for me to write. As a young child I was a member of the Cub Scouts, and I still have very fond memories from those days. Throughout my life I always had a tremendous amount of respect for the Boy Scouts, and so it greatly saddened me to learn about the abuse that has been running rampant in that organization. Of course this is just a very small part of a much larger trend that is plaguing our society, but if this kind of abuse is pervasive even among the Boy Scouts, what organization is truly safe for America’s kids? Have we gotten to the point as a society where our children are literally not safe anywhere?

According to ABC News, court documents that were just released indicate that 12,254 victims were abused by 7,819 Boy Scout troop leaders over the years…

An expert who has been working with the Boy Scouts revealed that there may have been as many as 7,819 allegedly sexually abusive troop leaders and volunteers in the storied organization, according to newly released court documents.

More than 7,800 individuals allegedly abused 12,254 victims, according to the court testimony.

This is what can happen when a society has absolutely no moral foundation whatsoever. These days, many Americans seem to believe that our country will be turned in the right direction if we can just get the correct political leaders into place, but that is not true at all.

Glynda Lomax Says That God Told Her That America Will Soon Be Destroyed

By Michael T. Snyder – April 23, 2019

Glynda Lomax has been receiving dreams and visions from God for more than 20 years, and if what she is saying God told her about America is accurate, all of our lives are about to change in a major way. According to her, because America has chosen darkness our nation is about to be “slaughtered” and it “will not rise again”. And in a subsequent prophecy, God warned her that the time of Jacob’s trouble is rapidly approaching but believers “are not ready”. To many, it is unthinkable that America could fall and the Tribulation could begin soon, but there are other Christians that have been waiting for these things to happen for a very long time. If you are not familiar with Glynda Lomax, the following basic information comes straight from her website

The Lord began giving me prophetic words and visions when I was in my twenties. I began to have visions and dream visions, which at that time related to my personal life, but it was not until 1996 that I truly got into an intimate walk with Him.

In 1997, I began to receive very vivid open visions as well as dream visions and prophetic words. In early 2008, the open visions came with a new intensity, so powerful that it felt as if a wall of wind had hit me as the visions opened up before me. In December of 2008, the Lord began to show me end times visions.

Just before 2011 began, He gave me several consecutive words in a short period of time for His people. I inquired of Him about receiving so many words in such a short time and He sent me a word the next day through a prophet that He is going to pour out His Spirit. That night He spoke to me to begin this blog to release them to His people.

She appears to have a very long track record, and that is why what she is now saying is so deeply troubling.

According to Glynda, America will be destroyed in the not too distant future…

America has chosen darkness over light. She has chosen her ways over Mine. She has chosen sin over righteousness. Yea, even great sin. She clings to her abominations and promotes them to other nations. Her defiance of Me, the One who made her great, is a stench in My nostrils.

Because America has chosen darkness over light, I will give her over to darkness. I will call forth her enemies to turn out the lights in America and America will be cloaked in darkness for all to see.

I called you to repentance, America, but you would not. Your haughty spirit has now spread to other nations and your abominations have overflowed your borders and defiled others. I will give you over to the evil and perversion you have chosen over Me, and it will be your destruction.

Since you have not chosen what is right, but you have chosen evil over good, evil will fill your borders. Your enemies will trample you under foot. They will take your women and kill your children. They will spare none, young or old. They will defile your land as they go, eating your crops and ruining your flocks. Famine will abound and the people of America will be turned into the streets as their homes will no longer be safe havens.

Prepare, America, for I am calling forth your enemies to destroy you. No longer will you be called beautiful or free, for I will give you over to them and none (of the wicked) shall be able to stand against Me, the Holy One of Israel. As you have shown no mercy to others, no mercy shall be shown to you.

As you have allowed those within your borders to slaughter the innocent, so shall your beauty be slaughtered and you will not rise again. Long has the innocent blood of those you killed cried out to Me, but I am longsuffering, giving you much time to repent, yet you have not repented. You are haughty and scornful, wicked and perverse and I will abide you no longer.

Certainly we are seeing America’s relations with other world powers go downhill ra… Read more: http://themostimportantnews.com/archives/glynda-lomax-says-that-god-told-her-that-america-will-soon-be-destroyed

Will U.S. Peace Plan Expose Transjordan As Palestinian Arab State?

Trump seems set to expose UN fraud on boundaries of Palestine President Trump appears set to expose more than forty years of deceptive and misleading information disseminated by the United Nations (UN) in relation to the boundaries of former Palestine. This welcome development comes with President Trump’s Special U.S Envoy Jason D. Greenblatt telling Sky News in Arabic on 19 April: “there is no reason to use the term ‘two-state solution,” the reason being that, “every side sees it differently.” The UN must take responsibility for creating such confusion by perpetuating intellectual and political fraud originating with its 1978 publication: “The Origins and Evolution of the Palestinian problem”(Study) Part 1 of the Study covering 1917-1947 was trashed by Israel’s Ambassador to the UN—Yehuda Blum—on 16 November: “Even the most cursory reading of this document can leave no doubt that the means and machinery of the United Nations have been misused once again to disseminate highly selective and tendentious information under the guise, in this instance, of what purports to be a scholarly study.The history of international conflicts, and particularly those with complex historical origins, can only be properly written by objective historians who enjoy complete academic freedom. The practice of writing and rewriting history according to the transient interests of a political body is of course characteristic of certain regimes. It is regrettable that the United Nations has now been drawn into that pattern.” Blum then told the UN General Assembly on 30 November 1978: “At the end of the first part of the publication, ostensibly dealing with the period of the Palestine Mandate, there appear a number of maps. The one map that is conspicuously absent is the official map of the Palestine Mandate which, until 1946, included Transjordan on the east bank of the Jordan River. This map was omitted because it does not fit into the PLO’s own scheme, as it would show too clearly that a Palestinian Arab state has already been in existence for 32 years on more than three quarters of the territory of mandated Palestine – that is, the state now called Jordan. That embarrassment is eliminated in this purportedly scholarly and impartial publication by the simple expedient of eliminating the map.” Blum was not finished— pointing out to the General Assembly on 20 December 1978 that Part 2 of the Study covering 1947-1977:
“Taken in conjunction with the first part, it is clear that this pseudo-scientific “study” is designed to give currency, under the emblem of the United Nations, to a completely misleading version of the history of the Arab-Israel conflict.Put briefly, that version has it that the League of Nations Mandate over Palestine was illegal, and all subsequent events, including the establishment of the State of Israel, are null and void. This wholly distorted view is set out in almost as many words in article 20 of the so-called PLO’s basic document, the “National Covenant”, and it forms the underlying thesis of the United Nations Secretariat publication in question. It completely ignores the Jewish people’s inalienable rights to self-determination, national independence and sovereignty in its homeland, the land of Israel.Thus, what purports to be a scholarly study, supported by what appears to be a scientific apparatus, is no more than a crude piece of propaganda.” Two States exist in former Palestine today: Arab Jordan – created in 1946 in about 78% of former Palestine – and Jewish Israel—created in 1948 in about 17% of that territory. These two states remain pivotal to ending the 100 years old Jewish-Arab conflict. Trump seems ready to set the UN fabricated record straight when his peace plan is released.

‘Failed States’: 8 Things To Know For April 24

1. Killing two states with one plan: In what may be the Trump administration’s most pointed comments yet against the two-state solution concept, Jared Kushner, senior aide and son-in-law to US President Donald Trump, told a conference Tuesday that previous solutions put forward to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict had “failed.”

  • “We’ve taken what I think is an unconventional approach. We’ve studied the past efforts and how they failed and why they failed… We’ve tried to do it a bit differently,” he told the Time 100 conference.
  • The comments are widely seen as an indictment of the two-state solution.
  • Barak Ravid of Axios notes that Kushner was asked directly about the two-state solution but refused to answer; instead he “referred to the Arab peace initiative from 2002 — which called for a Palestinian state on the 1967 lines with East Jerusalem as its capital — as reflecting what he called ‘old talking points.’”
  • “Two states? We’ll do something different,” reads a headline on the Mako website of Channel 12 news.
  • After Sky News Arabia reported over the weekend that a senior US official, widely reported to be Jason Greenblatt, said the two-state solution term was not helping matters, a spokesperson confirms to ToI the comments: “The ‘two state solution’ term means different things to different people. There is no point in using a phrase that never achieved peace. Our plan provides a clear, realistic and detailed vision of what peace could actually look like.”

2. Change we can’t undo: In Politico, Aaron David Miller and Richard Sokolsky argue that the administration is trying not only to change the conversation, but to change things in such a way that future administrations can never go back to the way things are, to the detriment of all.

  • This includes not just the Israeli-Palestinian conflict but the Iran deal and a host of other policies.
  • “Whatever Trump’s personal inclinations to prove he’s the world’s greatest negotiator on Iran, his hard-line advisers, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and national security adviser John Bolton, want to get rid of the mullahs who rule the Islamic Republic, not engage them. Pompeo and Bolton are now pulling out all the stops not only to provoke Iran into withdrawing from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action—and maybe into a fight as well—but to block a successor from engineering either a broader geopolitical pivot toward Iran or to engage in diplomacy to resolve outstanding US-Iranian differences,” they write.
  • “As for Israel, whatever the president’s personal views on Israeli-Palestinian peace (and during the campaign they were more balanced than they are today), Jared Kushner and his team now seem hellbent on producing a ‘made in Israel’ peace plan that will be dead before arrival and drive the final nail in the coffin of a peace process that is already on life support,” they add.

In Israel Hayom, Eyal Zisser also writes that the proposal will have far-reaching implications even if/when it goes nowhere 3. Golan Towers: Kushner’s comments don’t get a ton of play in Israel, and what little coverage there is focuses on him saying both sides will need to make painful concessions. (And in the US they are overshadowed by his dismissal of Russian meddling in the investigation.) 4. Dem Dems: Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is catching some flak for calling the Netanyahu government “dare I say, racist.”

  • In a tweet that does not mention Sanders directly, AIPAC tut-tuts over the “name-calling.”
  • The group confirms to JTA that it is indeed talking about Sanders.
  • Regional Cooperation Minister Tzachi Hanegbi calls Sanders’s comments “strange” several times and says they deserve to be condemned.

5. Down and out in Ayoub Kara’s head: Yedioth Ahronoth writes that outspoken Likud Minister Ayoub Kara, who will soon be out of a job, is fuming at everyone over the seeming end of his political career. 6. Compromise or wish list? Israel Hayom reports that the ultra-Orthodox may be willing to compromise on a law to regulate members of their community being drafted into the military. 7. Putting the jam in Benjamin: Coalition talks won’t really get underway until after Passover, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is making like the rest of the country and traveling around.

  • During a trip to the beach in Caesarea on Monday, eagle-eyed journalists took notice of what looked to be a new and scarily giant-looking gun wielded by one of Netanyahu’s bodyguards.

מאבטח של ראש הממשלה עם נשק נגד רחפנים https://t.co/f6lgUggLaGpic.twitter.com/HiSWC7lZYz — סקופים רוטר.נט (@RotterNews) April 23, 2019

  • While it looks like a death ray, speculation is that the gun is just a UAV jammer, to keep prying eyes away, and it does appear to look exactly like the Chinese-made Hikvision Defender.

 Catch me if you can, Israeli journalism style: Some will do anything to get a picture of someone they aren’t supposed to. Haaretz’s Chaim Levinson writes on Twitter about the time he came up with a madcap plan to snap a picture of the famously paparazzi-shy Leonardo Dicaprio when he was in Israel with then girlfriend Bar Refaeli over 10 years ago.

Face-Scans To Be Implemented By 2023, Apple Sued For $1 Billion Due To Mistaken Facial Recognition

DHS To Face-Scan 97% Of International Travelers Within Four Years The Department of Homeland Security says that facial recognition technology will be used on 97% of passengers departing the US by 2023, according to The Verge.  Already deployed in seventeen international airports, including Atlanta, New York City, Boston, San Jose, Chicago, and two airports in Houston, DHS systems will photograph and scan passengers at their departure gate, cross-referencing their face against a library of face images from visa and passport applications, as well as those taken by border agents when foreigners enter the country.  The aim of the system is to offer “Biometric Exit,” which gives authorities as good an idea of who’s leaving the country as who’s entering it, and allows them to identify people who have overstayed their visas. Quartz notes that US authorities have traditionally relied on airline flight manifests to track who’s leaving the country. –The Verge Last week, JetBlue customer MacKenzie Fegan was shocked after finding out that her face had been scanned in order for her to board the plane. “I just boarded an international @JetBlue flight. Instead of scanning my boarding pass or handing over my passport, I looked into a camera before being allowed down the jet bridge,” she tweeted. “Did facial recognition replace boarding passes, unbeknownst to me? Did I consent to this?” I just boarded an international @JetBlue flight. Instead of scanning my boarding pass or handing over my passport, I looked into a camera before being allowed down the jet bridge. Did facial recognition replace boarding passes, unbeknownst to me? Did I consent to this?

— MacKenzie Fegan (@mackenzief) April 17, 2019 JetBlue wrote back: You’re able to opt out of this procedure, MacKenzie. Sorry if this made you feel uncomfortable.

— JetBlue Airways (@JetBlue) April 17, 2019 When asked how they knew it was her, JetBlue said that the information was provided by DHS “from existing holdings,” and later clarified “these photos aren’t provided to us, but are securely transmitted to the Customs and Border Protection database. JetBlue does not have direct access to the photos and doesn’t store them.”  So to be clear, the government provided my biometric data to a privately held company? Did I consent to this? How long is my data held by @JetBlue? And even if I opt out at the scanners…you already have my information, correct?

— MacKenzie Fegan (@mackenzief) April 17, 2019 Would love more info about how my image was matched to a name on the flight manifest. I looked at the camera & a few seconds later the gate opened. Was my image, in the space of those seconds, sent to CBP, run through a database, matched to a name, and then sent back to @JetBlue?

— MacKenzie Fegan (@mackenzief) April 17, 2019 As we noted in March, the biometric systems are being implemented “despite questionable biometric confirmation rates and few, if any, legal guardrails.” What’s more, there are no limits to how airlines can use facial recognition data.  These same documents state — explicitly — that there were no limits on how partnering airlines can use this facial recognition data. CBP did not answer specific questions about whether there are any guidelines for how other technology companies involved in processing the data can potentially also use it. It was only during a data privacy meeting last December that CBP made a sharp turn and limited participating companies from using this data. But it is unclear to what extent it has enforced this new rule. CBP did not explain what its current policies around data sharing of biometric information with participating companies and third-party firms are, but it did say that the agency “retains photos … for up to 14 days” of non-US citizens departing the country, for “evaluation of the technology” and “assurance of the accuracy of the algorithms” — which implies such photos might be used for further training of its facial matching AI. –BuzzFeed Meanwhile, it appears that CBP has simply skipped part of the “rulemaking process” – foregoing public feedback prior to implementing the technology. Beyond “privacy, surveillance and free speech implications,” this is worrisome according to BuzzFeed, which notes that last summer the ACLU reported that Amazon’s facial recognition technology falsely matched 28 members of congress with arrest mugshots.  According to a Homeland Security OIG reportCBP was able to provide biometric confirmation for just 85% of passengers processed, while mexican and Canadian citizens were “particularly problematic” reports BuzzFeed.  “The low 85-percent biometric confirmation rate poses questions as to whether CBP will meet its milestone to confirm all foreign departures at the top 20 US airports by fiscal year 2021,” said the audit – while a spokesperson said that the rate has risen to 98.6% since the report.  Why One 18-Year-Old New Yorker Is Suing Apple For $1 Billion An 18-year-old New Yorker is suing Apple for $1 billion, claiming he was falsely arrested and charged for a series of thefts that he did not commit due to facial recognition software that Apple allegedly uses to track theft. Ousmane Bah was arrested at his home in New York in November and was charged with stealing from Apple stores in Manhattan, Boston, Delaware and New Jersey. However, the photo that accompanied the arrest warrant showed somebody that “looked nothing like” the student, according to the Daily Mail. Not only that, one of the thefts had occurred on the same day that Bah was attending his senior prom. He was in Manhattan for the event while one of the thefts occurred in Boston. So now, he is suing Apple for the hassle he has suffered as a result… which in his opinion is worth a solid one billion dollars. Bah believes that a learners permit that he lost, containing his name, address and other personal information, was used for identification at Apple stores during the thefts. The thief was caught stealing $1200 worth of products from Apple in Boston on May 31, 2018. The same thief then stole from Apple stores in Manhattan, New Jersey and Delaware, while at the same time allegedly being tracked by Apple software. Bah said he learned about the thefts the hard way: when a Boston municipal court summons arrived at his door in June. He was then arrested by the New York Police Department on November 29.  When the New York Police Department Detective who was assigned to the case examined surveillance footage from the Manhattan Apple Store, they found that the suspect “looked nothing like” Bah. Instead, the detective found that Apple’s (highly flawed) security technology had been using facial recognition to try and identify suspected thieves.  The investigator suspected that the thief had presented Bah’s learners permit during one of the multiple thefts. Bah then was forced to respond to all of the false allegations which led to ‘severe stress and hardship’ and left him ‘feeling humiliated, afraid, and deeply concerned’.  In his lawsuit, he claims: ‘[Apple’s] use of facial recognition software in its stores to track individuals suspected of theft is the type of Orwellian surveillance that consumes fear, particularly as it can be assumed that the majority of consumers are not aware that their faces are secretly being analyzed.’  While the charges in most states have been dropped against him, the ones in New Jersey are still pending. Apple has claimed it “does not use facial recognition technology in its stores.”

Bad Humans: UN Blames For Extinction Of One Million Species

U.N. Technocrats continue to throw fear-mongering mud at the wall to see what will stick. The extinction hasn’t happened yet, but humans are blamed for it as if it has. The purpose is to drive the world into Sustainable Development, aka Technocracy. ⁃ TN Editor

Up to one million species face extinction due to human influence, according to a draft UN report obtained by AFP that painstakingly catalogues how humanity has undermined the natural resources upon which its very survival depends.

The accelerating loss of clean air, drinkable water, CO2-absorbing forests, pollinating insects, protein-rich fish and storm-blocking mangroves — to name but a few of the dwindling services rendered by Nature — poses no less of a threat than climate change, says the report, set to be unveiled May 6.

Indeed, biodiversity loss and global warming are closely linked, according to the 44-page Summary for Policy Makers, which distills a 1,800-page UN assessment of scientific literature on the state of Nature.

Delegates from 130 nations meeting in Paris from April 29 will vet the executive summary line-by-line. Wording may change, but figures lifted from the underlying report cannot be altered.

“We need to recognise that climate change and loss of Nature are equally important, not just for the environment, but as development and economic issues as well,” Robert Watson, chair of the UN-mandated body that compiled the report, told AFP, without divulging its findings.

“The way we produce our food and energy is undermining the regulating services that we get from Nature,” he said, adding that only “transformative change” can stem the damage.

Deforestation and agriculture, including livestock production, account for about a quarter of greenhouse gas emissions, and have wreaked havoc on natural ecosystems as well.

The Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) report warns of “an imminent rapid acceleration in the global rate of species extinction.”

The pace of loss “is already tens to hundreds of times higher than it has been, on average, over the last 10 million years,” it notes.

“Half-a-million to a million species are projected to be threatened with extinction, many within decades.”

Many experts think a so-called “mass extinction event” — only the sixth in the last half-billion years — is already under way.

The most recent saw the end of the Cretaceous period some 66 million years ago, when a 10-kilometre-wide asteroid strike wiped out most lifeforms.

Scientists estimate that Earth is today home to some eight million distinct species, a majority of them insects.

A quarter of catalogued animal and plant species are already being crowded, eaten or poisoned out of existence.

The drop in sheer numbers is even more dramatic, with wild mammal biomass — their collective weight — down by 82 percent.

Humans and livestock account for more than 95 percent of mammal biomass.

“If we’re going to have a sustainable planet that provides services to communities around the world, we need to change this trajectory in the next ten years, just as we need to do that with climate,” noted WWF chief scientist Rebecca Shaw, formerly a member of the UN scientific bodies for both climate and biodiversity.

The Powerful Aspirin Alternative Your Doctor Never Told You About

by Nwo Report

Source: Collective Evolution

  • The Facts:This article was written by Sayer Ji, Founder of Greenmedinfo,com where it was originally posted. Published here with permission.
  • Reflect On:Given the newly released cardiovascular disease prevention guidelines recommending against daily low-dose aspirin use, natural, safe and effective alternatives are needed now more than ever.

In a previous article titled “The Evidence Against Aspirin and For Natural Alternatives,” we discussed the clear and present danger linked with the use of aspirin as well as several clinically proven alternatives that feature significant side benefits as opposed to aspirin’s many known side effects.

Since writing this article, even more evidence has accumulated indicating that aspirin’s risks outweigh its benefits. Most notably, a 15-year Dutch study published in the journal Heart found that among 27,939 healthy female health professionals (average age 54) randomized to receive either 100 mg of aspirin every day or a placebo the risk of gastrointestinal bleeding outweighed the benefit of the intervention for colorectal cancer and cardiovascular disease prevention in those under 65 years of age. Most recently, last month, new cardiovascular disease prevention guidelines submitted jointly by the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Associated and published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, earlier this year, contradict decades of routine medical advice by explicitly advising against the daily use of low-dose or baby aspirin (75-100 mg) as a preventive health strategy against stroke or heart attack, in most cases.

Of course, aspirin is not alone as far as dangerous side effects are concerned. The entire non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) category of prescription and over-the-counter drugs is fraught with serious danger. Ibuprofen, for instance, is known to kill thousands each year, and is believed no less dangerous than Merck’s COX-2 inhibitor NSAID drug Vioxx which caused between 88,000-140,000 cases of serious heart disease in the five years it was on the market (1999-2004). Tylenol is so profoundly toxic to the liver that contributing writer Dr. Michael Murray recently asked in his Op-Ed piece, “Is it Time for the FDA to Remove Tylenol From the Market?” Just as serious are tylenol’s empathy destroying properties that were only identified four years ago.

Given the dire state of affairs associated with pharmaceutical intervention for chronic pain issues, what can folks do who don’t want to kill themselves along with their pain?

Pine Bark Extract (Pycnogenol) Puts Aspirin To Shame

When it comes to aspirin alternatives, one promising contender is pycnogenol, a powerful antioxidant extracted from French maritime pine bark, backed by over 40 years of research, the most compelling of which we have aggregated on GreenMedInfo.com here: Pycnogenol Research. Amazingly, you will find research indexed there showing it may have value for over 80 health conditions.

In 1999, a remarkable study published in the journal Thrombotic Research found that pycnogenol was superior (i.e. effective at a lower dosage) to aspirin at inhibiting smoking-induced clotting, without the significant (and potentially life-threatening) increase in bleeding time associated with aspirin use. The abstract is well worth reading in its entirety:

“The effects of a bioflavonoid mixture, Pycnogenol, were assessed on platelet function in humans. Cigarette smoking increased heart rate and blood pressure. These increases were not influenced by oral consumption of Pycnogenol or Aspirin just before smoking. However, increased platelet reactivity yielding aggregation 2 hours after smoking was prevented by 500 mg Aspirin or 100 mg Pycnogenol in 22 German heavy smokers. In a group of 16 American smokers, blood pressure increased after smoking. It was unchanged after intake of 500 mg Aspirin or 125 mg Pycnogenol. In another group of 19 American smokers, increased platelet aggregation was more significantly reduced by 200 than either 150 mg or 100 mg Pycnogenol supplementation. This study showed that a single, high dose, 200 mg Pycnogenol, remained effective for over 6 days against smoking-induced platelet aggregation. Smoking increased platelet aggregation that was prevented after administration of 500 mg Aspirin and 125 mg Pycnogenol. Thus, smoking-induced enhanced platelet aggregation was inhibited by 500 mg Aspirin as well as by a lower range of 100-125 mg Pycnogenol. Aspirin significantly (p<0.001) increased bleeding time from 167 to 236 seconds while Pycnogenol did not. These observations suggest an advantageous risk-benefit ratio for Pycnogenol.” [emphasis added]

As emphasized in bold above, pycnogenol unlike aspirin did not significantly increase bleeding time. This has profound implications, as aspirin’s potent anti-platelet/’blood thinning’ properties can also cause life-threatening hemorrhagic events. If this study is accurate and pycnogenol is more effective at decreasing pathologic platelet aggregation at a lower dose without causing the increased bleeding linked to aspirin, then it is clearly a superior natural alternative worthy of far more attention by the conventional medical establishment and research community than it presently receives.

Not Just A Drug Alternative

Pycnogenol, like so many other natural interventions, has a wide range of side benefits that may confer significant advantage when it comes to reducing cardiovascular disease risk. For instance, pycnogenol is also:

  • Blood Pressure Reducing/Endothelial Function Enhancer: A number of clinical studies indicate that pycnogenol is therapeutic for those suffering with hypertension. Pycnogenol actually addresses a root cause of hypertension and cardiovascular disease in general, namely, endothelial dysfunction (the inability of the inner lining of the blood vessels to function correctly, e.g. fully dilate).[1] It has been shown to prevent damage in microcirculation in hypertensive patients, as well as reducing the dose of blood pressure drugs in hypertensive patients,[2]including hypertensive diabetic patients.[3] It has even been found to reduce intraocular hypertension found in glaucoma patients.[4]
  • Anti-Inflammatory Effects: There is a growing appreciation among the medical community that inflammation contributes to cardiovascular disease. Several markers, including C-reactive protein are now being fore grounded as being at least as important in determining cardiovascular disease risk as various blood lipids and/or their ratios, such as low-density lipoprotein (LDL). Pycnogenol has been found to reduce C-reactive protein in hypertensive patients.[5] Pycnogenol has been found to rapidly modulate downward (inhibit) both Cox-1 and Cox-2 enzyme activity in human subjects, resulting in reduced expression of these inflammation-promoting enzymes within 30 minutes post-ingestion.[6] Another observed anti-inflammatory effect of pycnogenol is its ability to down-regulate the class of inflammatory enzymes known as matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs).[7] Pycnogenol has also been found to significantly inhibit NF-kappaB activation, a key body-wide regulator of inflammation levels whose overexpression and/or dysregulation may result in pathologic cardiovascular manifestations.[8] Finally, pycnogenol has been found to reduce fibrinogen levels, a glycoprotein that contributes to the formation of blood clots; fibrinogen has been identified as an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease.[9]
  • The Ideal Air Travel Companion: In a previous article entitled, “How Pine Bark Extract Could Save Air Travelers Lives,” we delve into a compelling body of research that indicates pycnogenol may be the perfect preventive remedy for preventing flight-associated thrombosis, edema, and concerns related to radiotoxicity and immune suppression.

Given the evidence for pycnogenol’s pleotrophic cardioprotective properties, we hope that pycnogenol will become more commonly recommended by health care practitioners as the medical paradigm continues to evolve past its reliance on synthetic chemicals, eventually (we hope) returning to natural, increasingly evidence-based interventions. However, it is important that we don’t fall prey to the one-disease-one-pill model, convincing ourselves to focus on popping pills – this time natural ones – as simply countermeasures or ‘insurance’ against the well-known harms associated with the standard American diet, lack of exercise and uncontrolled stress. The ultimate goal is to remove the need for pills altogether, focusing on preventing cardiovascular disease from the ground up and inside out, e.g. letting high quality food, clean water and air, and a healthy attitude nourish and sustain your health and well-being.

Democrat District Attorney Announces Criminals Can ROAM FREE, Will NOT Prosecute Certain Crimes

by Nwo Report

Source: J.R

Don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time.

The district attorney of Dallas County has apparently never heard this phrase.

John Creuzot is now, basically, giving criminals a free pass to do whatever they want without getting punished.

Lovely.

From CBS Local:

CAST YOUR VOTE: Should President Trump CLOSE DOWN The Southern Border?

Dallas County Criminal District Attorney John Creuzot, who campaigned on criminal justice reform, announced he no longer plans to prosecute certain low-level crimes.

His office is in the process of dropping many of those cases.

He’s already dismissed more than 1,000 drug possession cases during his first three months in office.

Shortly after being elected in November 2018, Creuzot said, “On my agenda is to not ask judges to send people to the penitentiary for technical violations of their probation – for instance not doing community service, not paying fines and fees.”

In a letter to the people of Dallas County, Creuzot said his office will no longer prosecute many first-time marijuana offenses or any drug possession cases involving less than .01 grams of a drug.

Former Dallas County Prosecutor, Judge Mike Snipes said, “I think it’s forward looking. I think it’s pioneering… People who have minor offenses have a better chance of rehabilitating their life and getting back on track.”

The Texas police union wants this DA gone!

From Dallas News:

Austin police Sgt. Todd Harrison, president of the Combined Law Enforcement Associations of Texas, said in a written statement that Creuzot’s plan was “unacceptable.”

“When he was campaigning for the office, we don’t remember not prosecuting crime as part of his platform,” Harrison said in the statement.

Creuzot, a Democrat who took the post in January, has said his office would no longer prosecute most first-time marijuana offenses and theft of personal items worth less than $750, unless the theft was for financial gain.

Continued:

The district attorney also intends to curb excessive bail and probation periods, he wrote in an open letter to the public.

Creuzot said in a statement Wednesday afternoon that his new policy not to prosecute thefts of personal items under $750 was based on research that shows that people who steal necessities like food or diapers “do so out of hunger and poverty.”

“This policy was created to help address poverty-related problems, and combat the misuse of resources and taxpayer money,” he said.

Continued:

Patrick Wilson, county and district attorney for Ellis County, issued a statement after Creuzot’s announcement assuring Ellis County residents that “there will be no wholesale declarations that certain laws will not be enforced in this county.”

Wilson said it would be dangerous to rely on changing social conventions to determine how to enforce laws.

“If the citizens of Ellis County want a district attorney who refuses to enforce certain laws, they can get one,” Wilson wrote in a statement Friday. “But not while I’m in office.”

Prayer Wins! Appeals Court Thwarts Freedom From Religion Push

by Nwo Report

The Godless group was fighting to claim that an atheist could deliver the opening session with a non-religious invocation, but that didn’t fly.

On Friday, the federal appeals court for the District of Columbia remained true to the law and upheld the fact that each day’s session must begin with a religious prayer to a ‘higher authority.’

The Washington Examiner reported:

The unanimous ruling from a three-judge panel on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia came in a case filed by Daniel Barker, co-president of the Freedom From Religion Foundation and a former Christian minister who is now an atheist, who argued the House violated the First Amendment when it denied his request to deliver a secular invocation.

Rev. Patrick Conroy, the House chaplain, rejected Barker’s application in 2015 to serve as a guest chaplain because he was “ordained in a denomination in which he no longer practices.”

But over the course of litigation challenging that denial, Conroy said Barker could not serve as a guest chaplain because he wanted to deliver a secular prayer.

The House also specified that its rules require a religious invocation to be delivered.

“[T]he House does not violate the Establishment Clause by limiting its opening prayer to religious prayer,” the court said.

The D.C. Circuit upheld the lower court’s ruling dismissing Barker’s claim that his First Amendment rights were violated, giving a victory to Conroy.

“Even though we accept as true Barker’s allegation that Conroy rejected him ‘because he is an atheist,’ the House’s requirement that prayers must be religious nonetheless precludes Barker from doing the very thing he asks us to order Conroy to allow him to do: deliver a secular prayer,” the court said.

“In other words, even if, as Barker alleges, he was actually excluded simply for being an atheist, he is entitled to none of the relief he seeks. We could not order Conroy to allow Barker to deliver a secular invocation because the House permissibly limits the opening prayer to religious prayer.”

The case dates back to 2015, when Barker sought to serve as a guest chaplain in the House and deliver the invocation, which is given at the start of each legislative day.

Guest chaplains are required to be sponsored by a member of Congress, ordained, and address a “higher power” rather than House members.

Democrat Mark Pocan sponsored Barker, and he provided the Chaplain’s Office with a certification of his ordination and a copy of his draft secular invocation.

The Chaplain’s Office, however, denied Barker’s request to serve as a guest chaplain in December 2015 because, as Conroy explained in a subsequent letter, he did not satisfy the requirement that guest chaplains “be ordained by a recognized body in the faith in which [they] practice.”

Barker then sued Conroy, the House and then-House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., in 2016 and argued Conroy’s denial ran afoul of the First Amendment.

Conroy moved to dismiss the claims, and the federal district court in D.C. agreed.

As the case played out, the House specified that those who wish to deliver a secular invocation rather than a prayer cannot do so under the chamber’s rules.

“The question then, is this: does the House’s decision to limit the opening prayer fit ‘within the tradition long followed in Congress and the state legislatures?’ The answer is yes,” the court said, citing the Supreme Court’s ruling in a 2014 case upholding the practice of opening legislative sessions with a prayer.

Basically, this was a deliberate effort to remove the law, which intends that Congress must be guided by a higher power… and for the large majority of the Founding Fathers, that power is the Hebrew God.

The group, Freedom From Religion Foundation, spends millions of dollars every year fighting to remove every vestige of Christianity from the public culture. They rarely target Islam or any other religion. They hate God, and working with an evil intention, demand that His presence in the nation be obliterated.

Thankfully, they failed to remove Him from the morning invocation in the House of Representatives.

Update: Militia Leader Arrested By FBI, Funding Sites Shut Down Invasion Stopping Group

by Nwo Report

The men who form the United Constitutional Patriots are facing a coordinated attack by the leftist leaders of the US, as their leader has been arrested and their funding sites shut down.

After Larry Hopkins and his group of United Constitutional Patriots have garnered attention from the media, his efforts to stop the military-age men invading the nation are being shut down by the fascist rulers of our own society.

Hopkins, the leader of the militia group has been arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The crowd funding and PayPal sites associated with the group have also been shut down in this coordinated effort to stop a group that is effective at stopping the invasion of migrants into the country.

Reuters reported:

The arrest came two days after the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) accused the group of illegally detaining migrants and New Mexico’s Democratic Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham ordered an investigation.

Hopkins, 69, also known as Johnny Horton, was arrested in Sunland Park, New Mexico, on a federal complaint charging him with being a felon in possession of firearms and ammunition, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said in a statement.

“We’re not worried about it, he’s going to be cleared,” said Jim Benvie, a spokesman for the United Constitutional Patriots (UCP), blaming his arrest on political pressure from Lujan Grisham.

Hopkins is the “national commander” of the UCP, which has had around half a dozen members camped out on a rotating basis near Sunland Park since late February.

The UCP describes itself as a “patriot group” helping U.S. Border Patrol cope with record numbers of Central American families crossing the border to seek asylum.

The group has helped detain over 5,600 illegal invaders over the past two months. Critics claim they have pointed weapons at the illegal aliens and impersonated law enforcement, but those are lies.

“Today’s arrest by the FBI indicates clearly that the rule of law should be in the hands of trained law enforcement officials, not armed vigilantes,” New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas said in a statement of Hopkins’s arrest.

The leftist outlet continued:

Hopkins was previously arrested in Oregon in 2006 on suspicion of impersonating a police officer and being a felon in possession of a firearm, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) said in a statement it did not support citizens taking law enforcement into their own hands and instead encouraged the public to be its eyes and ears on the border.

Benvie said the UCP was doing just that and had the support of local Border Patrol and police.

Mostly military veterans, UCP members carry weapons for self defense and at no time pointed guns at migrants, as they have been accused of, Benvie said.

Despite having funding sources cut off, Benvie said the group’s online support had swelled since it came under attack this week. Its Facebook followers have more than doubled since Thursday.

Asked what the group would do if told to leave by state police, Benvie said they would probably go and, if they felt the order violated their constitutional rights, sue the state of New Mexico.

“There’s not going to be any standoffs, this isn’t the Bundy Ranch,” Benvie said, in reference to a 2014 armed confrontation in Nevada where federal agents gunned down lawful owners of on their own land.

President Trump Preparing to Declassify Carter Page FISA Docs in Coming Weeks

by Nwo Report

Source: Gteway Pundit

President Trump and his aides are preparing to declassify the Carter Page FISA docs and other pertinent Russiagate records following the release of the Mueller report.

Investigative reporter James Rosen of Sinclair Broadcasting, reported that according to sources, with Mueller’s report now public, President Trump and key White House aides are said to be taking a fresh look at declassifying documents that will expose the FBI’s and DOJ’s criminal actions of spying taken against Trump’s 2016 campaign.

According to James Rosen, President Trump is planning on declassifying the documents around the same time Inspector General Michael Horowitz releases his report on FISA abuses.

Horowitz is reportedly drafting his final report which is due to be made public within about six weeks.

-REWIND-

In September of 2018, President Trump issued an immediate declassification order of Carter Page FISA docs and all text messages relating to the Russia investigation, without redaction, of James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page and Bruce Ohr.

A few days later, President Trump walked back his promise to declassify the docs.

“I met with the DOJ concerning the declassification of various UNREDACTED documents. They agreed to release them but stated that so doing may have a perceived negative impact on the Russia probe. Also, key Allies’ called to ask not to release. “Therefore, the Inspector General has been asked to review these documents on an expedited basis,” Trump said.

According to ranking member of the House Intel Committee Devin Nunes there is exculpatory evidence in the 20 redacted pages of the Carter Page FISA docs.

The first FISA warrant was issued on Carter Page in October of 2016, just weeks before election day.

Obama’s corrupt FBI and DOJ obtained a FISA warrant and THREE subsequent renewals on Carter Page.

It is also important to note that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Andrew McCabe signed the June 2017 FISA renewal –one month after Rosenstein appointed Robert Mueller as special counsel to investigate Trump-Russia collusion.

According to Mueller’s report, the allegations against Carter Page used to justify the FISA spying campaign against him were FALSE.

“The investigation did not establish that Page coordinated with the Russian government in its efforts to interfere with the 2016 presidential election,” the report stated.

Under the law, the FBI must go back to the FISA court every 90 days and present the FISA judge with enough evidence that the subject may be acting as a foreign agent in order to obtain a renewal on the spy warrant.

What evidence did the FBI present to the FISA judges on FOUR separate occasions that enabled the FBI to obtain a total of FOUR spy warrants on Carter Page if the allegations against him were false??

Trump hinted Friday that a storm is coming when he tweeted, “It is now finally time to turn the tables and bring justice to some very sick and dangerous people who have committed very serious crimes, perhaps even Spying or Treason. This should never happen again!”

Source: Wyatt TSocial Justice Warriors have apparently run out of people and objects to declare as racist and are now taking aim at man’s best friend.

Ben Faulding, a socialist with bylines in the Washington Post, Tablet Mag, and The Forward has declared that dogs are a “tool of white supremacy and gentrification.”

“That’s not just my opinion. There is research that shows how white newcomers dogwalking routes stake out territory. And white owners user their pets to socialize with other white owners excluding minorities,” Faulding tweeted, though he keeps changing his display name.

It isn’t just Faulding expressing this sentiment.

Alicia Sanchez Gill, the “Interim Executive Director” at Safe Spaces DC, tweeted “white folks, I don’t care how nice your dog is, dogs have been used as a tool of white control, dominance and violence, from slavery, through civil rights to police dogs today.”

“I’ve said to friends, often half-jokingly, that I love dogs, but HATE white people’s dogs. what is happening at my alma mater, @HowardU, is a perfect example of why. white folks believe their dogs have more humanity and deserve more comfort than Black people,” Gill tweeted with the hashtag “gentrification.”

The outrage over dogs, or more specifically — white people’s dogs — comes in response to a dispute over some grass by Howard University in DC.

In today’s case of “I can’t believe this isn’t the Onion,” CNN’s ‘Reliable Sources’ propagandist Brian Stelter is going to be hosting Toronto’s World News Day Conference which is focused on why “independent fact-based journalism” matters.

It isn’t even a sick prank or belated April Fool’s Day joke.

Other guests on the absurd lineup include Julie Ioffe, Karen Tumulty, Philip Bump.

The panel of guests, and the host, were instrumental in pushing the Russiagate conspiracy theory.

“In an age of misinformation, World News Day provides an opportunity to create public awareness about the value of fact-based journalism in our society. Help celebrate by sharing stories of how journalism has impacted you and your community,” the conference website reads.

A search through Stelter’s feed also reveals that he has declined to speak out in support of persecuted publisher Julian Assange — you know, the one guy who has never had to issue a correction or retraction for his publications.

The lineup was thoroughly mocked on social media

Security council warns Israelis to leave Sinai

National Security Council warns of ISIS, Al-Qaeda activity in Sinai, urges Israelis in the area to get out, come home. Arutz Sheva Staff, 23/04/19 13:31  

Sinai

SinaiiStock

Tens of thousands of Israelis have ignored the National Security Council’s (NSC) warnings and are currently vacationing in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula.

Between 23,000 and 40,000 Israelis are currently vacationing in Sinai, up 20% from Pesach (Passover) last year.

Following Sunday’s suicide attacks in Sri Lanka, Israel’s security organizations warned that ISIS is still active, especially in southern Asia, Africa, and the Sinai Peninsula. The sources also warned that the Sinai hosts one of ISIS’ most effective branches.

In a warning published last week, NSC’s Counterterrorism Bureau wrote: “In addition to ISIS’ activities, Al-Qaeda members in the area are encouraging attacks on Israeli targets. The serious travel warning (Level 1) issued for Sinai is still in effect.”

The Bureau also called on all Israelis currently in the Sinai Peninsula to leave “immediately” and return to Israel. Families of Israelis currently vacationing in the area are asked to contact them and inform them of the travel warning.

“Anyone wishing to visit the Sinai is asked to refrain from doing so,” the Bureau emphasized.

ISIS Says Behind Sri Lanka Bombings; Was ‘Retaliation’ For New Zealand Mosque Massacre

Shortly after the death toll from Sunday’s Easter bombings in Sri Lanka climbed above the 300 mark, ISIS validated the Sri Lankan government’s suspicions that a domestic jihadi organization had help from an international terror network while planning the bombings were validated when ISIS took credit for the attacks.

NYT
https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-04-23/isis-takes-credit-sri-lanka-attacks-were-retaliation-new-zealand-mosque-massacre

The claim was made via a report from ISIS’s Amaq news agency. Though the group has lost almost all of the territory that was once part of its transnational caliphate, ISIS now boasts cells across the Muslim world, including in North Africa and elsewhere. Before ISIS took credit for the attack, a Sri Lankan official revealed that Sunday’s attacks were intended as retaliation for the killing of 50 Muslims during last month’s mass shooting in Christchurch, New Zealand.

However, the Sri Lankan government didn’t offer any evidence for that claim, or the claim that Sunday’s attacks were planned by two Islamic groups (though that now appears to have been substantiated by ISIS’s claim of responsibility). The group is believed to have worked with the National Tawheed Jamaath, according to the NYT.

“The preliminary investigations have revealed that what happened in Sri Lanka was in retaliation for the attack against Muslims in Christchurch,” State Minister of Defense Ruwan Wijewardene told the Parliament.

Meanwhile, the number of suspects arrested in connection with the attacks had increased to 40 from 24 as of Tuesday. The government had declared a national emergency that allowed it sweeping powers to interrogate and detain suspects.

On Monday, the FBI pledged to send agents to Sri Lanka and provide laboratory support for the investigation.

As the death toll in Sri Lanka climbs, the attack is cementing its position as the deadliest terror attack in the region.

  • 321 (as of now): Sri Lanka bombings, 2019
  • 257 Mumbai attacks, 1993
  • 189 Mumbai train blasts, 2006 166 Mumbai attacks, 2008
  • 151 APS/Peshawar school attack, 2014
  • 149 Mastung/Balochistan election rally attack, 2018

Meanwhile, funeral services for some of the bombing victims began on Tuesday.

Even before ISIS took credit for the attack, analysts told the Washington Post that its unprecedented violence suggested that a well-financed international organization was likely involved.

The bombings on Sunday, however, came with little precedent. Sri Lanka may have endured a ghastly civil war and suicide bombings in the past – some credit the Tamil Tigers with pioneering the tactic – but nothing of this scale. Analysts were stunned by the apparent level of coordination behind the strikes, which occurred around the same time on both sides of the country, and suggested the attacks carried the hallmarks of a more international plot.

“Sri Lanka has never seen this sort of attack – coordinated, multiple, high-casualty – ever before, even with the Tamil Tigers during the course of a brutal civil war,” Alan Keenan, a Sri Lanka expert at the International Crisis Group, told the Financial Times. “I’m not really convinced this is a Sri Lankan thing. I think the dynamics are global, not driven by some indigenous debate. It seems to me to be a different kind of ballgame.”

Hinting at possible ISIS involvement, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said during a Monday press conference that “radical Islamic terror” remained a threat even after ISIS’s defeats in Syria.

Of course, ISIS’s claim couldn’t be  confirmed and the group has been  known to make “opportunistic” claims in the past, according to WaPo. The extremist group said the attacks were targeting Christians and “coalition countries” and were carried out by fighters from its organization.

Speculation that the government had advanced warning of the attacks, but failed to act amid a power struggle between the country’s president and prime minister, unnerved citizens and contributed to a brewing backlash. Following the bombings, schools and mass had been canceled until at least Monday, with masses called off “until further notice.”

If only unborn children could vote:( Sanders, Harris Say Boston Marathon Bomber Should Be Able To Vote From Prison

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Kamala Harris (D-CA) said on Monday that all prisoners – including domestic terrorists such as the Boston Marathon Bomber, should have the right to vote while in prison

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-04-23/sanders-harris-say-boston-marathon-bomber-should-be-able-vote-prison

Speaking at a CNN town hall, Sanders was asked by an audience member if he thinks the right to vote should extend to serious criminals – including 2013 Boston Marathon Bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who said he and his brother Tamerlan were motivated by Islamic extremism when they built and deployed pressure-cooker backpack bombs based on designs from an al-Qaeda affiliated online magazine, killing three people and injuring several hundred others – including 16 who lost limbs. 

“If somebody commits a serious crime, sexual assault, murder, they’re going to be punished,” replied Sanders. “They may be in jail for 10 years, 20 years, 50 years, their whole lives. That’s what happens when you commit a serious crime.”

“But I think the right to vote is inherent to our democracy,” Sanders continued. “Yes, even for terrible people, because once you start chipping away … you’re running down a slippery slope. … I do believe that even if they are in jail, they’re paying their price to society, but that should not take away their inherent American right to participate in our democracy.”

Leader Of Border Militia Boasted Of Plans To Assassinate Obama, Clinton, Soros: FBI

The leader of the militia group which we profiled over the weekend for its detention of migrant families at the US border, was arrested and charged of plotting the assassination of former President Barack Obama, George Soros and various other key Democratic Party figures, the FBI said in court papers.

While militia leader Larry Hopkins, 69, was arrested on Saturday for a weapons charge said to be unrelated to his activities on the border, the FBI now claims Hopkins bragged about his fellow militia members “training to assassinate” former President Barack Obama, Trump’s nemesis in the 2016 election, Hillary Clinton, and the Democratic Party’s most generous billionaire donor, George Soros.

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-04-22/leader-border-militia-boasted-plans-assassinate-obama-clinton-soros-fbi

To be sure, Hopkins had been a busy man – if what the Feds say is to be believed (which these days is a stretch) – for a long time, and before the F.B.I. arrested the militia leader, he’d had so many run-ins with the law that his police record stretched across much of the United States. Oregon police arrested him in 2006 on charges of impersonating a police officer and a felony weapons offense. They had found him showing guns to teenagers in a gas-station parking lot while wearing a police-style uniform and a badge emblazoned with the words “Special Agent” according to the NYT.

“Hopkins stated that he worked for the federal government directly under George Bush,” Officer Jack Daniel of the sheriff’s office in Klamath County, Ore., wrote in his report. Hopkins, the report said, claimed variously to be investigating a meth lab, hunting fugitives and undertaking unspecified “operations” in Afghanistan.

Over a decade later, Hopkins finally came under the scrutiny of federal authorities in 2017, after the FBI received reports that his group was “training” to assassinate Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and George Soros, according to documents unsealed Monday in federal court.

Hopkins appeared in Federal District Court on Monday after his arrest over the weekend on yet another charge, this time of being a felon in possession of firearms and ammunition.

Hopkins’ group, the United Constitutional Patriots profiled here, claims to have helped the US Border Patrol to detain over 5,600 immigrants in the previous two months. The ACLU has condemned the group as a “fascist militia” and called its members vigilantes. In photos showcasing its actions, the group shows men in camouflage circling and detaining hundreds of migrants in the desert near Sunland Park, N.M., and then handing the migrants over to Border Patrol.

The heavily armed militia’s actions have ignited debate over whether its members broke kidnapping laws and effectively acted as a paramilitary force supporting the Border Patrol. Militia members argue that they were assisting the authorities to patrol remote areas of the border and carrying out “verbal citizen’s arrests.”

“We cannot allow racist and armed vigilantes to kidnap and detain people seeking asylum,” the ACLU said in a letter to New Mexico Governor, Michelle Lujan Grisham and Attorney General Hector Balderas.United Constitutional Patriots

Hopkins’ attorney, Kelly O’Connell, said the militia group leader planned to plead not guilty.  The militia’s spokesman told local media that he’s “confident” Hopkins will “get through this.” He also claimed that the New Mexico, Hector Balderas, “has declared war on American citizens at the order of the ACLU” by pushing to prevent private citizens “from assisting and documenting a crisis on the border.”

In an affidavit, FBI special agent David S. Gabriel, said the bureau was made aware of the activities of Hopkins after receiving reports in October 2017 of “alleged militia extremist activity” in northwestern New Mexico. Gabriel said that the following month, two F.B.I. agents went to a trailer park in Flora Vista, N.M., where Hopkins was living at the time. With Mr. Hopkins’s consent, the agents entered the home and saw about 10 firearms in plain view, in what Mr. Hopkins referred to as his office.

Hopkins, who has also used the name Johnny Horton Jr., told the agents that the guns belonged to Fay Sanders Murphy, whom he described to agents as his common-law wife, according to the affidavit. The agents collected at least nine firearms from the home as evidence, including a 12-gauge shotgun and various handguns.

According to the NYT, the court affidavit gave few details about the report the F.B.I. received stating that the United Constitutional Patriots “were training to assassinate George Soros, Hillary Clinton, and Barack Obama because of these individuals’ support of Antifa.”

Hopkins’s lawyer, Kelly O’Connell, disputed the reports about assassination plans. “My client told me that is not true,” Mr. O’Connell said. He also questioned the timing of the arrest. “My question is, why now?” O’Connell said. He suggested that pressure from prominent Democrats in New Mexico may have prompted the F.B.I. to take action.

UK Deploys Helicopter Gunships As Deterrent To Counter “Very Credible Threat” From Russia

Contributing to NATO’s latest increased presence in the Baltic states, five Boeing AH-64 Apache attack helicopters of the British Royal Force were recently deployed to the Amari Air Base in Estonia, reported the Irish Examiner. The AH-64s are expected to participate in upcoming NATO military exercises and provide defense coverage for a military base near Tapa in Estonia, a city located near the Russian border.

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-04-22/uk-deploys-helicopter-gunships-deterrent-counter-very-credible-threat-russia

Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson told reporters that the AH-64s will form a crucial element of NATO’s Enhanced Forward Presence (EFP), which forward deploys defenses and deterrence in Eastern Europe near the Russian border.

Williamson said: “It’s a very credible threat that we see from Russia and part of the reason that we’re deploying five Apache attack helicopters is making sure that we’re constantly adapting to a changing situation, but this is about deterrents.”

This is about Nato nations standing together in unity as one and you see Great Britain playing the largest role in enhanced forward presence with the largest number of service personnel deployed.

The enhancement of that deployment with the Apache attack helicopters is really vital and very, very important and it’s been very warmly welcomed by so many nations.”

The Apaches are supported by Estonia’s AgustaWestland AW159 Wildcat reconnaissance helicopters.

The Irish Times said more than 100 U.K. military personnel have been deployed to the Baltics as part of the new operation, taking the total there to 1,000 troops.

Major David Lambert, commanding officer of 663 Squadron, 3 Regiment Army Air Corps, said the AH-64s will be participating in military exercises in several Baltic states this year.

One of the war drills, dubbed Iron Wolf, will be held in Lithuania this year with 14 nations practicing defensive maneuvers.

“Whenever you go somewhere new, there’s always things that you learn about how to operate.

Your fieldcraft needs to change and in the UK we train very much in rolling countryside, it favours us in what we do.

Actually putting ourselves in a really flat area in close proximity to the Russian border brings some new, complex challenges that we need to look at.

I’m really excited by the whole prospect,” said Maj Lambert.

The EFP is deployed across Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and Poland, provides combat-capable forces to mobilize at a moments notice, in the event of war with Russia.

A unit of 300 French soldiers, five Leclerc main battle tanks and 20 infantry fighting vehicles have also arrived in Estonia.

The deployment of U.K. attack helicopters and French troops have certainly sent alarm bells ringing in Russia. The question now: How will Moscow respond?

Mystery Donor “Worth Over $200 Million” Wants To See Ocasio-Cortez Defeated Next Election

A wealthy donor “worth over $200 million” wants to make sure Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez loses her next election, according to the New York Post, citing Bronx Republican chairman Mike Rendino. 

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-04-22/myster-donor-worth-over-200-million-wants-see-ocasio-cortez-defeated-next-election

“There’s definitely national energy and money on this race,” Rendino told the Post, adding that the mystery donor has “connections to raise money in Manhattan.” 

The Democratic Socialist, who was elected after convincing voters she was a blue-collar “girl from the Bronx” despite growing up in one of the wealthiest enclaves on the East Coast, already faces challenges from one contender; Egyptian-American medical journalist Ruth Papazian – while a former cop-turned-high school civics teacher and a conservative talk radio producer may toss their hats in the ring as well. 

The three potential contenders agree on one thing: They believe Ocasio-Cortez has neglected her district, which encompasses a northeast section of the Bronx including Throgs Neck and Parkchester and a northwest portion of Queens including Jackson Heights and College Point.

It took the congresswoman two months to open a district office in Queens.

She completely ignores the people in this district,” medical writer Ruth Papazian, 61, told The Post during an interview at the homestyle Italian eatery Patricia’s of Morris Park. –New York Post

Papazian lives several blocks away from Morris Park with her 85-year-old mother in the same apartment she grew up in following the family’s emigration from Egypt in 1956. 

“I’ve lived here my whole life. I know the heart and soul of this community. The people here have scratched and clawed their way into the middle class, and they’re not about to be impoverished with the high taxes it will take to make the Green New Deal and Medicare for all,” said Papazian – referring to two of Ocasio-Cortez’s policy goals. 

According to former Gov. Pataki deputy, Tom Doherty, a Republican challenger to Ocasio-Cortez would have no problem trying to “raise real national money.” 

“We need to put individuals forward and make the incumbent work for re-election,” said Doherty. 

Papazian has met with former Trump campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, at a Lincoln Day dinner in Queens, where a source told the Post: “He was encouraging and offered to be helpful when Ruth has demonstrated that she can raise enough money for a serious race.” 

AOC won the 14th Congressional District with over 78% of the vote, while Hillary Clinton had 57% in 2016, however a recent Siena College Poll found that while 52% of AOC’s constituents view her favorably, just 33% backed her opposition to Amazon bringing a second headquarters to Queens, and just 41% support her Green New Deal. 

“She’s only interested in a national platform, and we need local representation,” says former NYPD Officer John Cummings. The 58-year-old who now teaches US government at St. Raymond High School for Boys in Parkchester is considering a run against the Democratic Socialist. Cummings acknowledges that “it’s a difficult road because this is a heavily Democratic district.”

Her other potential challenger – Mark Levin producer Rich Valdes joked that Ocasio-Cortez’s initials could stand for “ambition over constituents.” The 40-year-old launched an exploratory committee in February, meeting with Republican clubs in the Bronx and Queens. 

“They’re really, really kind of discouraged at the fact that she was elected on this platform of representing the district because she ran against [former Rep. Joe] Crowley, positing him as being no-show, and she’d turned out to be very much the same way a no-show person,” said Valdes. 

The sinister plot to steal your soul and sell your DNA for profit 1984

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-04-20/sinister-plot-steal-your-soul-and-sell-your-dna-profit-1984

Global Intel Hub 4/20/2019 Basel, Switzerland — Zero Hedge Exclusive —

This evidence shows a coordinated plan to steal your soul and sell it as a profit based on your DNA.  This is supported by law and yet another example of Demorats criminalizing business activity (signed in by Bill Clinton, a product of Bill Bradley – 2 Demorats).  Welcome to the New World Order in operation ‘corpus vile‘.

This may sound like a sci fi movie plot – but as you read on, you will see that this story will prove the adage that often truth is stranger than fiction.  Before getting into the gory details, we need a bit of history so let’s go back to the year 1984.  In this year two movements began which at the time were not likely connected, which will be the topic of this article.

  1. The Human Genome Project 
  2. The Bradley Amendment 

As we explain in Splitting Pennies (The Book) – the world is not as it seems. 

The year is 1984:

What happened in 1984 Major News Stories include Indria Ghandi assassinated, DNA profiling developed, Virgin Atlantic Starts Operations, Grand Hotel Brighton Bombing, Union Carbide Pesticide plant in Bhopal India leaks lethal gas, McDonalds Restaurant Shooting Leaves 20 dead. The Aids Virus is identified it is not the worldwide problem it is today. Following on from the PC Apple releases the Macintosh computer. Following the Widespread Famine in Ethiopia many of the top British and Irish USSR pop musicians join together under the Name Band Aid and record the song “Do They Know It’s Christmas”. Following the boycott by the US of the Moscow Olympics the soviet block boycotts the Los Angeles Olympic games. Recession continues to be a problem in the US and 70 US Banks fail in just one year.

Note the historical use of the word ‘profiling’ – a term that wouldn’t be heard with DNA for another 30 years.  The Human Genome Project was ostensibly about mapping your DNA which is, at least scientifically – all of who you are.

The Human Genome Project was a 15-year-long, publicly funded project initiated in 1990 with the objective of determining the DNA sequence of the entire euchromatic human genome within 15 years.[5] In May 1985, Robert Sinsheimer organized a workshop to discuss sequencing the human genome,[6] but for a number of reasons the NIH was uninterested in pursuing the proposal. The following March, the Santa Fe Workshop was organized by Charles DeLisi and David Smith of theDepartment of Energy’s Office of Health and Environmental Research (OHER).[7] At the same time Renato Dulbecco proposed whole genome sequencing in an essay in Science.[8] James Watson followed two months later with a workshop held at the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory.  In 1990, the two major funding agencies, DOE and NIH, developed a memorandum of understanding in order to coordinate plans and set the clock for the initiation of the Project to 1990.[16] At that time, David Galas was Director of the renamed “Office of Biological and Environmental Research” in the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science and James Watson headed the NIH Genome Program. In 1993, Aristides Patrinos succeeded Galas and Francis Collins succeeded James Watson, assuming the role of overall Project Head as Director of the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) National Center for Human Genome Research (which would later become the National Human Genome Research Institute). A working draft of the genome was announced in 2000 and the papers describing it were published in February 2001. A more complete draft was published in 2003, and genome “finishing” work continued for more than a decade. 

Many have heard about the project but there are a few facts you probably don’t know that we’d like to elaborate on here.  First, did you know the entire thing was sponsored by the US government with a final bill of about $5 Billion USD?  You’re probably asking why the US Government wants a map of your DNA (well, some of you may be asking – others know why).  The second thing you probably don’t know is that the project was headed by accused racist James Watson the profound scientist who actually discovered DNA in the first place.

James Watson is a great example of the irony of how the Elite twist science and opinion to mold public consent.  Chomsky calls this “Manufacturing Consent” which really should be the motto on the door of various TV editorial offices.  James Watson is a scientist that’s not politically correct.  He has been revoked of all his credentials because he stated the facts, that there are 3 human races which are genetically different, each with their own peculiarities.  Of course it was only offensive when he said Africans are less intelligent:

Dr Watson’s remarks “in full”. Dr Watson told The Sunday Times that he was “inherently gloomy about the prospect of Africa” because “all our social policies are based on the fact that their intelligence is the same as ours – whereas all the testing says not really”. He said there was a natural desire that all human beings should be equal but “people who have to deal with black employees find this not true”. … 

From Wikipedia:

At a conference in 2000, Watson suggested a link between skin color and sex drive, hypothesizing that dark-skinned people have stronger libidos.[65][90] His lecture argued that extracts of melanin – which gives skin its color – had been found to boost subjects’ sex drive. “That’s why you have Latin lovers,” he said, according to people who attended the lecture. “You’ve never heard of an English lover. Only an English Patient.”[91] He has also said that stereotypes associated with racial and ethnic groups have a genetic basis: Jews being intelligent, Chinese being intelligent but not creative because of selection for conformity, and Indians being servile.[92]

In a politically correct world, you can’t call a man a man – a man is a ‘non-woman’ and all people are equal.  This is the same twisted double speak that applies to the degradation of our education system, with the policy that ‘everyone deserves an A’ which is possible when you lower the testing standards.  This is the same Elite group that has twisted “Paternity Science” into “Paternity Ethics” that means it is ethical to lie to children about who their parents really are.  In this brave new world, it’s a crime to tell a child that your father is actually not your father.  It’s better to let them live with the lie.

And now we come to the second phenomenon that has been metastasizing since 1984 – The Bradley Amendment:

In United States law, the Bradley Amendment 1986, Public law 99-509 42 U.S.C. § 666(a)(9)(c). Requirement of statutorily prescribed procedures to improve effectiveness of child support enforcement. Bill Bradley requires state courts to prohibit retroactive reduction of child support obligations. Specifically, it:

  • automatically triggers a non-expiring lien whenever child support becomes past-due.
  • overrides any state’s statute of limitations.
  • disallows any judicial discretion, even from bankruptcy judges.
  • requires that the payment amounts be maintained without regard for the physical capability of the person owing child support (the obligor) to promptly document changed circumstances or regard for his awareness of the need to make the notification.

But, like any other past-due debt, the obligee may forgive what is owed to them.

When past-due child support is owed to a state as a result of welfare paid out, the state is free to forgive some or all of it under what’s known as an “offer in compromise”. The state and government agencies are non-profit organizations. … Bobby Sherrill, a Lockheed employee in Kuwait from North Carolina, was captured by Iraqis and spent nearly five months as an Iraqi hostage. Sherrill was arrested the night after his release for not paying $1,425 in child support while he was a hostage.

For those in Finance, it will shock you to learn that under the Bradley Amendment, child support is the only thing that you can go to prison for – debt related.  Although the ACLU is again on the hunt with twisted agendas about Debtors Prisons, by matter of fact and law, child support is the only debt that can cause a bench warrant to be issued for your arrest and you can be imprisoned (even if you finally pay!):

Consequences for Non-Payment of Child Support: Because child support is essentially a court order, a non-custodial parent who is not making these payments will be found in contempt of court. They are informed of the contempt charge in writing and ordered to appear in court. If the parent does not appear, a bench warrant for their arrest will be issued. Even if the parent does appear, they may still be sent to jail if they cannot provide adequate proof that they could not make the child support payments, rather than simply being unwilling to do so.

“Adequate Proof” of being held captive by Iraqi warlords during time of war wasn’t a burden of proof in the case of Bobby Sherrill.  It’s also the only way a court can garnish your wages, seize your assets, take tax refunds, and even suspend your driver’s license!  Let that sink in a little.  Only the IRS has similar powers, but unlike Bradley claims, the IRS provides a set of rules and methods to avoid things like asset seizure and wages garnishment.  For Bradley cases there ARE NONE.  It’s important to understand this difference.  As powerful as the IRS is – there is an entire industry built around dealing with the IRS and in fact it’s possible to negotiate big tax payments down to reasonable levels.  There are a number of options.  For child support cases there are NONE.

Now like with all draconian laws an argument will be made that it’s just a way to get deadbeat dads to pay what they owe.  Who can argue with that?  Well let’s use the argument about the IRS.  The IRS gets people to pay.  They will even send the jackals to Switzerland and corrupt an entire government just to shake down 100 seriously delinquent taxpayers.  So the aggressiveness of the Bradley Amendment is not only unconstitutional it’s much worse – it’s modern slavery.  Because it’s not about the cases where parents are guilty – it’s about cases where they are not; or where they are NOT EVEN THE FATHER.  Imagine this scenario:

In the late 1990s, Andre Chreky already was a star hairstylist with his own salon. But he reached new heights after he was profiled in Washingtonian magazine and it became known that his clients included first lady Laura Bush. Soon after, Chreky said, a former receptionist began showing up at his shop on K Street NW, demanding money.

“You have a child,” the woman, Adele Doudaklian, 43, of Gaithersburg, told him — a teenage son he had never met. He ordered her out.  Doudaklian did not return phone calls to her home. Chreky said he dated her several times in the early 1980s but stopped long before Doudaklian’s son, Andrew Lucas, was born in March 1986.  When the paternity action was brought in early 2003, Chreky said, he thought the DNA test would end the whole episode.  Instead, Chreky was ordered to pay $1,715 a month in child support, plus health insurance premiums, after LabCorp’s report said he was the father. By the time Lucas turned 18, Chreky had paid $25,000. (Even after he won the case, Virginia law did not allow him to get the money back.)  Chreky pleaded his case to the Virginia Division of Child Support Enforcement and then in an appeal to Fairfax Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court. But LabCorp’s “99.99 percent” finding was too tough to overcome. In fact, under Virginia law, 98 percent is automatic proof of paternity.  This spring, his case landed in Fairfax County Circuit Court in a full-blown trial. Douglas S. Levy, one of Chreky’s attorneys, said Chreky offered to take another DNA test before his trial. But the state rejected the offer, he said.  So Chreky’s attorneys hammered LabCorp’s experts, mostly about what the lawyers saw as two errors on the lab report. The director of LabCorp’s DNA identification testing division, Gary M. Stuhlmiller, said in a sworn report that he had arrived at his conclusions after comparing Chreky’s DNA with a database of the Moroccan population. Chreky is a native of Morocco.  But at trial, Stuhlmiller acknowledged that LabCorp did not have a Moroccan database.  Chreky is no scientist. He said he just knew that this was something he needed to fight. Most people don’t have the means to contest a “99.99 percent” finding. His wife, Serena, said the couple spent more than $200,000 to fight the case.

So after this poor guy spent $200,000 to fight this – only to win what they always knew was the truth – this woman was a lying financial criminal attempting to steal money from someone she knew who she felt had money.  Is Chreky able to get legal fees or anything back?  No.  Is this woman prosecuted for fraud?  No.  Can he sue for damages? No.

IN ANY OTHER SITUATION – HE WOULD BE ABLE TO SUE FOR RELIEF.

The connection between these 2 events

Scroll forwards 30 plus years into the future (today) and we’re seeing people thrown in jail for sitting on a park bench or being picked up by an Ambulance.  Fortunately, many of them have been released.  But the US justice system in particular, is a Dinosaur in this field – perhaps intentionally.  Yes, it appears this is all part of a greater plan.  While rights activists have been partying and congratulating themselves, the Elite have been busy shaping and developing a more sinister and more subtle method of control:  A global DNA grid backed by Draconian undefendable laws like the Bradley Amendment, enforced on a county and city level.  Heck, it’s a great way to control men – because all it takes is a crazed accusation by a woman (and who doesn’t believe a victimized woman in today’s world) – to ruin someone’s life whether it be financially, a character witness, or something even more complex such as the case against Julian Assange.

“Hitmen” used to be mostly male, mostly olive skinned, mostly with a particular accent – but no more.  Those days are gone.  The Vinny you once knew is now poolside at the Tropicana living life (permanently retired).  Now the “Hitman” has become the “Hitperson” which is politically correct speak for “Hitwoman.”  Basically, the Elite have created an Artificial Intelligence net in order to control you.  The basis of this net is a Matrix-like DNA network so intertwined in our society the Department of Justice (DOJ) has its own Commission on the topic, the National Commission on the Future of DNA Evidence. The National Commission on the Future of DNA Evidence was established by the Attorney General to maximize the value of forensic DNA evidence in the criminal justice system.

The FBI maintains a database of more than 13 Million DNA profiles, and publishes some of this information online:

The National DNA Index (NDIS) contains over 13,674,427 offender1 profiles, 3,435,350 arrestee profiles and 915,052 forensic profiles as of January 2019. Ultimately, the success of the CODIS program will be measured by the crimes it helps to solve. CODIS’s primary metric, the “Investigation Aided,” tracks the number of criminal investigations where CODIS has added value to the investigative process. As of January 2019, CODIS has produced over 451,781 hits assisting in more than 440,381 investigations.

You’re probably thinking – how do they get my DNA?  First, they are getting it when you are arrested (not always, but there is a growing law enforcement participation in Rapid DNA).  Second, they are getting it if you are incarcerated for ANY crime.  Third, they have wholesale agreements with companies like 23andMe, Ancestry.com and others.

This is laid out well on Zero Hedge:

As the New York Times reports:

“The science-fiction future, in which police can swiftly identify robbers and murderers from discarded soda cans and cigarette butts, has arrived. In 2017, President Trump signed into law the Rapid DNA Act, which, starting this year, will enable approved police booking stations in several states to connect their Rapid DNA machines to Codis, the national DNA database. Genetic fingerprinting is set to become as routine as the old-fashioned kind.

Referred to as “magic boxes,” these Rapid DNA machines – portable, about the size of a desktop printer, highly unregulated, far from fool-proof, and so fast that they can produce DNA profiles in less than two hours – allow police to go on fishing expeditions for any hint of possible misconduct using DNA samples.

Journalist Heather Murphy explains:

“As police agencies build out their local DNA databases, they are collecting DNA not only from people who have been charged with major crimes but also, increasingly, from people who are merely deemed suspicious, permanently linking their genetic identities to criminal databases.”

Suspect Society, meet the American police state.

Global Conspiracy (Business Plan) to enslave you via your DNA

Some people may be thinking – that if you have nothing to hide – then why the privacy concerns?  Because you can be found guilty of a crime you didn’t commit, because like Anderson you were in an Ambulance an hour before a dead guy.

But it’s not only that.  You can be a fake father victim in a paternity fraud scam that not only dupes you out of hard earned money there are far deeper implications.  Or you can be stopped from becoming a Supreme Court Judge (that didn’t work though, as we exposed the fraud).

Many believe that the Elite practice various forms of the Occult.  Because they mostly control the media and obviously if these Secret Societies really are a Secret than as George HW Bush said “I can’t tell ya because it’s a secret” they probably have a mechanism to keep the secret, and certainly aren’t broadcasting details of their goings on ‘tonight at 11’.   We’re not going to delve into this topic but we just need to mention one example in the greater context of things.  What is Ronald Reagan, Richard Nixon, and a bunch of other powerful people (all male) doing for 2 weeks in the forest of California at Bohemian Grove  dressed in animal suits dancing around a huge bonfire? On July 15, 2000, controversial radio show host Alex Jones and his cameraman, Mike Hanson, snuck in and shot footage of the Cremation of Care ceremony.[25][26]

The Grove is particularly famous for a Manhattan Project planning meeting that took place there in September 1942, which subsequently led to the atomic bomb.   The breadcrumbs lead to a Global plot dominated by [unknown] business leaders, government agencies, and various dark forces.

It is for this reason why we mention Bohemian Grove at this stage of the article, because this was the birthplace of the Manhattan Project, one of the most game-changing projects in the history of the world.  We will reveal in further articles how complex the spider web is woven – how millions of people are impacted on a personal level – and how this is just the beginning of a Terminator style Artificial Intelligence grid which has nothing positive in mind.  Our alternative history thesis is that since the French Revolution, the Elite have employed a number of subtle and less tangible methods and systems to profit and retain control at the same time.  This has been evolving later with the abolition of physical slavery, only to have this replaced by the industrial revolution, whereby millions were economic slaves with absolutely no workers rights.  During time the social control paradigm employed by the Elite evolved even more – and hit a peak in 1970.  It was at this time they employed a number of non-violent methods developed in the 1960’s such as Manufacturing Consent (via the Media), and even direct mind control via Television (TV) and non-lethal weapons such as beam weapons, genetically modified foods, aerial spraying, HAARP and HAARP v2.0, and finally what we are faced with now – a complete grid of your DNA which is who you are.

When a plane crashes or is about to – they don’t say ‘people’ they say ‘souls’ (we have 22 souls on board) regardless of your beliefs, your DNA is who you are.  Not only the government is using this DNA grid without your permission that is just one bright example, there are many others.  Corporations are now using this data and developing products which are genetically designed just for you.  Unlike genetically modified foods which are benign compared to this – we are talking about something very personal!  And the fact is that no one forces you to eat GM crap (which is by the way illegal in the European Union) – there are many organic stores that sell healthy alternatives even in rural America.  But the DNA fraud is forced down your throat, such as the case when you are either:

  1. Accused by a stranger of being the father of a child that’s not yours .. OR
  2. Being randomly accused of a crime that you didn’t commit.. OR
  3. A political ‘soft’ assassination such as was tried with Julian Assange and Brett Kavanaugh

And of course it doesn’t end there.  Even if you don’t submit your DNA – according to their flawed methodology – they don’t need it.  They have a ‘statistically sufficient’ sample of the Global population because enough of your cousins and 2nd cousins have already submitted.

Years ago people were concerned about tracking via chip implants.  It never took off.  But DNA surveillance is much more powerful and much more scary.  Imagine a world where your every movement is tracked, not by your electronic communications – but by the natural shedding of your own DNA through microscopic skin flakes and more.

Ironically, the Rapid DNA Act of 2017 was signed into law by a President who previously was afraid to shake hands (as is common in American business and social life).

We’ve had whistleblowers for Military abuses (Chelsey Manning) when will someone come forth about the above?  In further articles we are going to expose the DNA fraud which includes paternity fraud and abuse, privacy abuses, and abuses a new science that hasn’t been around long enough to have laws evolve around it (Genomics).

Something good did happen in 1984, Phil Collins wrote some of his best classics.  This one steals the Gestalt of the time, and now too:

In conclusion, there is at least one place where you can get unbiased tests, which will be revealed in further releases of this information.  This article is just a teaser of things to come.  With Julian Assange now in custody, the world needs a new army of the next generation wikileaks which is about information, nothing more.

In honor of DNA day we will be celebrating and giving credit where credit is due.

Gary and other Satanists involved in this plot to steal your soul will be in good company in Hell.  While this is being perpetrated on a global scale by a US publicly traded company, the main HQ for operation steal your soul is from the South.  Maybe these folks just need some Jesus in their life.  Or less drinking (or more).  They say in the South you’re either a drinker or a Bible beater.  Well Gary, we will see.

Repeal the Bradley Amendment

Mexican soldiers detain American soldiers on U.S. soil. Government response: ?

The Mexican government is powerless to control the cartels at our border. But somehow when it comes to belligerently confronting our own soldiers on our own soil, the Mexicans seem to muster the personnel and temerity to defend their side of the border. Moreover, they apparently have the unbridled impudence to complain about armed American citizens defending our border, while they have permanently transformed our country in the worst way imaginable through their disrespect of our sovereignty. This is clearly no longer about immigration, but about a pure invasion that requires a military buildup.

On April 13, at around 2 p.m. Central Time, a group of five or six suspected Mexican soldiers approached an unmarked vehicle of two U.S. soldiers stationed at the border in El Paso County, Texas, and ordered them out of the vehicle. According to Newsweek, which obtained the “serious incident report,” the soldiers were in fact active duty members of B Battery, 1st Battalion, 37th Field Artillery Regiment, not from a National Guard unit. The Mexican soldiers disarmed one of the U.S. soldiers and placed his sideaerm in the U.S. vehicle.

While the soldiers were parked south of the border fence near Clint, Texas, they were north of the Rio Grande riverbed, which placed them “appropriately in U.S. territory,” according to Maj. Mark Lazane, a spokesman for NORTHCOM. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and the Department of Defense (DOD), after inquiring of the Mexican government, were informed that the Mexican soldiers thought that the Americans were south of the border. “Throughout the incident, the U.S. soldiers followed all established procedures and protocols,” according to NORTHCOM.

NORTHCOM confirmed that there are approximately 2,800 service members assigned to the border mission. “This includes approximately 1,200 on the Mobile Surveillance Camera mission, plus about 1,000 service members hardening ports of entry in Texas and New Mexico. There are approximately 200 personnel as part of a crisis response force, with the remainder being headquarters and logistics personnel supporting the mission.”

When I asked both NORTHCOM and the State Department if our government had conveyed our concerns to Mexico and asked for an apology, both departments declined to comment.

Zach Taylor, a retired 26-year veteran of the Border Patrol who has formed a group of retired border agents to better educate the public on the border, told CR that he is convinced these Mexican soldiers were making a political statement. “At the reported location the Rio Grande River is distinct and easily identified in relation to the actual international boundary,” asserted Taylor, who still lives near the border in Arizona. “That one of the supposed Mexican soldiers took one sidearm from an American and put it in the American vehicle is curious, as if the Mexicans knew exactly who they encountered, where they were encountered, and were simply making a statement. What the purpose of that statement was is open to broad speculation, but on the face of it, this was probably political – as in showing that to Mexico, borders mean nothing.” Taylor confirmed that he regularly saw this behavior during his time in the Border Patrol.

We have tens of thousands of soldiers stationed in other parts of the world fully equipped for war and with at least manageable rules of engagement. Why are the soldiers at our own border too few, so lightly armed, and seeking to “de-escalate a potentially volatile situation” of Mexican aggression rather than deterring it?

What is particularly disturbing about this incident is that one could defend Mexico’s powerless response to this border crisis and the robust cartel and smuggler activity as a lack of resources to secure its own border from non-state actors. But why is it that the Mexican government suddenly has the ability to cross into our own country and detain our own personnel, but is seemingly powerless to deal with the cartels on its own side of the border?

What is also disturbing is the lackluster response from our own government, juxtaposed to its aggressive posture against private militia groups seeking to secure our border. Our government refuses to hold the line at the border and defend the ranches from cartel activity by placing the military there in meaningful numbers and with a heavy deterrent. They certainly are not deterring the migrants. Just last week, 12,500 more illegals were released into our country with no regard for the public charge, safety concerns, or potential contagious diseases. That is literally the number one job of our federal government, as distinct from a state government. While nobody wants to see vigilantes patrolling our border, they are clearly not the problem, but a symptom of the lack of government control over our sovereignty.

Yet it appears that the FBI has arrested a leader of one New Mexico militia that recently detained a group of illegal immigrants until Border Patrol was able to get to the scene. On Saturday, the FBI arrested Larry Hopkins, the “national commander” of the United Constitutional Patriots, on firearms charges two days after the ACLU complained about the presence of this group at Sunland Park, New Mexico. According to Reuters, this is a group of mainly military veterans who have detained as many as 5,600 aliens until Border Patrol was able to arrive.

Why is it that our government, which appears unable or unwilling to deal with Mexican aggression, the cartels, or illegal immigration, is suddenly pursuing a zero-tolerance policy for American militias seeking to do a job the federal government won’t do? Failing to secure our borders is a breach of the social contract of government, as laid out in the Declaration of Independence, and if there is anything that would ever justify the citizenry to take action, it is this issue. It’s not something we want to see, but where is our own government in dealing with the problem?

Mexico’s Foreign Relations Ministry expressed its “deep concern” that these militia groups would “drive human rights abuses of people who migrate or request asylum or refuge in the United States.” That’s a pretty rich statement from a government that evidently refuses to apologize for stepping on our soil and detaining our own soldiers.

It’s also self-evident from this statement that Mexico, rather than working with us to stop this bogus asylum-seeking, is helping encourage it.

The president would be wise to announce a buildup of the military in Texas and New Mexico and change the rules of engagement. He should also renegotiate NAFTA while making border and immigration issues the main sticking points.

If our government would only go after those violating our sovereignty with as much rigor as they do those American veterans trying to defend it, justifiably or not, this entire issue would go away. As Trump often says, either we are a country, or we are not.

There have been a lot of viral impersonations of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on social media, but none have been quite this hilarious and adorable.

Wearing glasses and bright red lipstick, a young girl brilliantly skewered the freshmen congresswoman in a way that put the current cast of Saturday Night Live to shame.

“Like, I’m Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka AOC, and like, I want to talk about like, climate change, because like, there’s no doubt cow farts are making the climate change,” the girl’s rant begins. “Like, in July the climate was 96 degrees and in February the climate was 36 degrees. O.M.G. like, that’s a huge change in the climate in only four months,” the girl continues after counting the months on her fingers.

The hilarious bit continues with the child claiming that the world is going to end in 12 years.

“Like, I also want to talk about socialism because socialism is so amazing! Like, socialism is actually short for social media. Did you know that? Like, I use social media so I’m a socialist — and like three of the most successful countries in the world are socialist too. Venezuela, Facebook, and Twitter are all very successful socialist countries.”

The adorable impersonation concludes with the talented child asserting that she has a lot of friends who “moved to America from Facebook.”

U.S. To Register People Born in Golan Heights as ‘Native Israelis’

by Nwo Report

The U.S. State Department has updated its policy to officially reflect President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize the occupied Golan Heights as part of Israel .

People born in the disputed territory will now be registered as “native Israelis”.

Press TV reports: All official documents issued by the State Department, including passports, will reflect the administration’s recent decision, reported Israel’s Haaretz daily on Thursday.

Previously, official US documents referred to the Golan Heights with a special designation, indicating the territory’s occupation by Israel.

The policy is still in place for Palestinian territories such as the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem al-Quds.

Trump signed a proclamation recognizing Israel’s “sovereignty” over the Syrian Golan Heights on the direction of a number of his advisers, most notably his son-in-law Jared Kushner, on March 25.

Earlier this week, Trump’s Israel adviser Jason Greenblatt published an image of an official US government map depicting the occupied territory as part of Israel, drawing much negative attention.

The Syrian territory was occupied and later annexed by the Tel Aviv regime after a full-scale war against Arab countries in 1967 in a move that was never recognized by the international community.

Damascus has repeatedly vowed to retake the Israeli-occupied territory by any means possible.

“I am leaving office, but I want to firmly underline that I am not leaving politics,” the incumbent president said after exit polls gave Volodymyr Zelensky a decisive lead.

By Associated Press

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko is accepting defeat in the election for the country’s top post.

An exit poll from Ukraine’s presidential election is giving Jewish comedian Volodymyr Zelensky – who plays a high school teacher ranting about government corruption who is elected president on a TV series – a commanding lead over Poroshenko.

Results from the exit poll released Sunday after voting stations closed showed Zelensky receiving 73.2% of the nationwide vote; Poroshenko got 25.3%.

The poll, conducted by the Kiev International Institute of Sociology and the Razumkov Center public opinion organization, was based on more than 13,000 responses to face-to-face questions at 300 polling places as of 6 p.m., two hours before the polls closed.

The poll claims a margin of error of three percentage points.

Shortly after the  poll results were published, Poroshenko said he was willing to help his rival transition into the presidency.

“I am leaving office, but I want to firmly underline that I am not leaving politics,” Poroshenko said.

New Yorkers May Soon Be Automatically Registered Organ Donors

(THE TRUTH PLEASE – Organ donation is one of the BIGGEST body snatching and harvesting schemes in all history. Fact IS doctor’s will voluntarily decline to resuscitate an individual if they know you are a willing donor. Don’t you get a say in when you want to be done with your own organs? – https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/reading-between-the-headlines/201311/body-snatchers-organ-harvesting-profithttps://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2017/06/organ-donation-death/530511/ – THINK ABOUT IT!)

A New York State Assemblyman has introduced a bill that automatically selects people over 18 as organ donors. This means adults in New York would need to opt out of the registry as opposed to opt-in, as things currently stand.

Pat Burke (D-Buffalo) said via wivb that “I’m introducing this legislation because I want to start a conversation about how we can get more people on the organ donation registry, and ultimately save more lives.”

If the bill passes, people over 18-years of age will need to opt out of donor registry on their drivers license applications. New York has the highest need for organ donations in the country, according to a press release by Burke. Burke also says that the intention of the bill is not “harvesting organs.”

It feels as though clearing up misinformation on the internet has become a large part of my job. I did not submit a proposal to harvest people’s organs after they die and I did not submit a proposal to have an automatic organ donor program for every New Yorker.

This proposal is meant to spark the conversation about the importance of organ donation. If this proposal became law, it would change the question on a New York State driver’s license application from an opt-in question to an opt-out question. Under this proposal, driver’s license applicants over the age of eighteen would have to opt-out by saying “no” to being an organ donor. The application would not be complete until this question was answered. Bypass Censorship. Join 1000’s, Subscribe Today Enter Email Address

There are thousands of New Yorkers currently on the waitlist for a life saving organ. I believe this minor alteration on a NYS driver’s license application would increase the amount of people registered as organ donors in our state and could potentially save the lives of people waiting for a donor.

I do not intend to move forward with this proposal until it has earned significant public support, but it is my hope that it draws attention to the need for everyone to register as an organ donor.

Elon Musk says Neuralink machine that connects human brain to computers ‘coming soon’

Elon Musk has revealed his Neuralink startup is close to announcing the first brain-machine interface to connect humans and computers.

The entrepreneur took to Twitter to tell followers the technology would be “coming soon”, though failed to provide more exact details.

Neuralink was set up in 2016 with the ambitious goal of developing hardware to enhance the human brain, however few details about how this will work have been made public.

The startup’s website, which is currently advertising vacancies for 11 different jobs, describes the futuristic technology as an “ultra-high bandwidth” connection between the human brain and computers.

Mr Musk has frequently claimed the rapid rise of artificial intelligence poses an existential risk to humanity. Such an interface, he says, is essential If humans are to compete with such technology in the future.

At a technology conference in 2016, Mr Musk said humans risked being treated like house pets by AI machines if a brain-computer interface was not built.

“I don’t love the idea of being a house cat, but what’s the solution?” he said. “I think one of the solutions that seems maybe the best is to add an AI layer.”

Speaking last year on the Joe Rogan podcast, Mr Musk said Neuralink’s technology would allow humans to “effectively merge with AI”. Read more: https://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/gadgets-and-tech/news/elon-musk-twitter-neuralink-brain-machine-interface-computer-ai-a8880911.html

Jason Greenblatt, the US Representative for International Negotiations, on Friday rejected reports that the Trump administration’s peace plan will include giving a portion of the Sinai Peninsula to Gaza.

In a tweet, Greenblatt warned against believing unconfirmed reports about the peace plan.

“Hearing reports our plan includes the concept that we will give a portion of Sinai (which is Egypt’s) to Gaza. False! Please don’t believe everything you read. Surprising and sad to see how people who don’t know what’s in the plan make up and spread fake stories,” he wrote. Read more: http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/262099

Google’s Sensorvault Collects And Stores ‘Detailed Location Records’

Google’s Sensorvault Can Tell Police Where You’ve Been
Do you know where you were five years ago? Did you have an Android phone at the time? It turns out Google might know—and it might be telling law enforcement. In a new article, the New York Times details a little-known technique increasingly used by law enforcement to figure out everyone who might have been within certain geographic areas during specific time periods in the past. The technique relies on detailed location data collected by Google from most Android devices as well as iPhones and iPads that have Google Maps and other apps installed. This data resides in a Google-maintained database called “Sensorvault,” and because Google stores this data indefinitely, Sensorvault “includes detailed location records involving at least hundreds of millions of devices worldwide and dating back nearly a decade.”
The data Google is turning over to law enforcement is so precise that one deputy police chief said it “shows the whole pattern of life.” It’s collected even when people aren’t making calls or using apps, which means it can be even more detailed than data generated by cell towers. The location data comes from GPS signals, cellphone towers, nearby Wi-Fi devices and Bluetooth beacons. According to Google, users opt in to collection of the location data stored in Sensorvault. However, Google makes it very hard to resist opting in, and many users may not understand that they have done so. Also, Android devices collect lots of other location data by default, and it’s extremely difficult to opt out of that collection. Using a single warrant—often called a “geo-fence” or “reverse location” warrant—police are able to access location data from dozens to hundreds of devices—devices that are linked to real people, many of whom (and perhaps in some cases all of whom) have no tie to criminal activity and have provided no reason for suspicion. The warrants cover geographic areas ranging from single buildings to multiple blocks, and time periods ranging from a few hours to a week. So far, according to the Times and other outlets, this technique is being used by the FBI and police departments in Arizona, North Carolina, California, FloridaMinnesotaMaine, and Washington, although there may be other agencies using it across the country. But police aren’t limiting the use of the technique to egregious or violent crimes—Minnesota Public Radioreported the technique has been used to try to identify suspects who stole a pickup truck and, separately, $650 worth of tires. Google is getting up to 180 requests a week for data and is, apparently, struggling to keep up with the demand. Law enforcement appears to be seeking warrants to access this extremely detailed location data. However, it’s questionable whether the affidavits supporting those warrants truly establish probable cause and also questionable whether judges fully understand what they’re authorizing when issuing these warrants. According to the Times, the warrants frequently rely on an officer’s assertion that the fact that “Americans owned cellphones and that Google held location data on many of these phones” somehow supports probable cause for the warrant. The warrants also list GPS coordinates that supposedly “geo-fence” the geographic area for which they are requesting data, but many don’t include a map showing the area itself. Without a visual representation, there’s almost no way to tell how large or small the geographic area covered by the warrant is. Law enforcement seems to be using a three-step process to learn the names of device holders (in some cases, a single warrant authorizes all three steps). In the first step, the officer specifies the area and time period of interest, and in response, Google gives the police information on all the devices that were there, identified by anonymous numbers—this step may reveal hundreds of devices. After that, officers can narrow the scope of their request to fewer devices, and Google will release even more detailed data, including data on where devices traveled outside the original requested area and time period. This data, which still involves multiple devices, reveals detailed travel patterns. In the final step, detectives review that travel data to see if any devices appear relevant to the crime, and they ask for the users’ names and other information for specific individual devices. As the Times article notes, this technique implicates innocent people and has a real impact on people’s lives. Even if you are later able to clear your name, if you spend any time at all in police custody, this could cost you your job, your car, and your ability to get back on your feet after the arrest. One man profiled in the Times article spent nearly a week in police custody and was having trouble recovering, even months after the arrest. He was arrested at work and subsequently lost his job. Due to the arrest, his car was impounded for investigation and later repossessed. These are the kinds of far-reaching consequences that can result from overly broad searches, so courts should subject geo-location warrants to far more scrutiny.

Iran Appoints Military Leader Who Vows To Destroy Israel

Iran appoints fiery general who vows to destroy Israel as new IRGC head
Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei shuffled the top ranks of the hard-line Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps Sunday, appointing the deputy chief of the hardline force as its top leader.Brig. Gen. Hossein Salami was made commander of the IRGC, replacing Maj. Gen. Mohammed Ali Jafari, who has headed the military force since 2007, according to Iranian media reports. Salami has frequently vowed to destroy Israel and “break America.” Iran was “planning to break America, Israel, and their partners and allies. Our ground forces should cleanse the planet from the filth of their existence,” Salami said in February. The previous month, he vowed to wipe Israel off the “global political map,” and to unleash an “inferno” on the Jewish state.He also said “Iran has warned the Zionist regime not to play with fire, because they will be destroyed before the US helps them.” Any new war, he said, “will result in Israel’s defeat within three days, in a way that they will not find enough graves to bury their dead.” The IRGC shakeup comes weeks after the US designated the group a terror organization, the first time it has ever blacklisted an entire military branch under the rule. Tehran has raged against the move, and responded by labeling the US military a terror group under its own designation. It also rallied around the IRGC, with some lawmakers dressing in the division’s uniforms in parliament in reaction to the designation.

Sri Lanka Death Toll Spikes To 290, 500 Wounded

Sri Lanka attacks death toll spikes to 290, about 500 wounded The death toll from attacks on churches and luxury hotels across Sri Lanka rose significantly to 290, and about 500 people were also wounded, police said on Monday.

Bomb blasts ripped through churches and luxury hotels in Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday, the first major attack on the Indian Ocean island since the end of a civil war 10 years ago. Thirteen people were arrested and three police officers were killed during a security forces raid on a house in the Sri Lankan capital Colombo several hours after the attacks, many of which officials said were suicide bomb explosions.

The government declared a curfew in Colombo and blocked access to social media and messaging sites, including Facebook and WhatsApp. It is unclear when the curfew will be lifted. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said US nationals were among those killed, but did not give details.
There are 25 unidentified bodies, believed to be of foreigners, at the Colombo Judicial Medical Officer’s mortuary, according to Sri Lanka’s Foreign Ministry.

There were no immediate claims of responsibility for the attacks in a country which was at war for decades with Tamil separatists until 2009, a time when bomb blasts in the capital were common.
Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe acknowledged that the government had some “prior information of the attack,” though ministers were not told.

He said there wasn’t an adequate response and there needed to be an inquiry into how the information was used.

He also said the government needs to look at the international links of a local terrorist group.
Agence France-Presse reported that it had seen documents showing that Sri Lanka’s police chief Pujuth Jayasundara issued an intelligence alert to top officers 10 days ago, warning that suicide bombers planned to hit “prominent churches.” He cited a foreign intelligence service as reporting that a little-known Islamist group was planning attacks.

Electric Car-Owners Shocked: New Study Confirms EVs Considerably Worse For Climate Than Diesel Cars

The Brussel Times reports that a new German study exposes how electric vehicles will hardly decrease CO2 emissions in Europe over the coming years, as the introduction of electric vehicles won’t lead to a reduction in CO2 emissions from highway traffic.

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-04-21/new-study-shocks-electric-cars-considerably-worse-climate-diesel-cars

According to the study directed by Christoph Buchal of the University of Cologne, published by the Ifo Institute in Munich last week, electric vehicles have “significantly higher CO2 emissions than diesel cars.” That is due to the significant amount of energy used in the mining and processing of lithium, cobalt, and manganese, which are critical raw materials for the production of electric car batteries.

A battery pack for a Tesla Model 3 pollutes the climate with 11 to 15 tonnes of CO2. Each battery pack has a lifespan of approximately ten years and total mileage of 94,000, would mean 73 to 98 grams of CO2 per kilometer (116 to 156 grams of CO2 per mile), Buchal said. Add to this the CO2 emissions of the electricity from powerplants that power such vehicles, and the actual Tesla emissions could be between 156 to 180 grams of CO2 per kilometer (249 and 289 grams of CO2 per mile).

German researchers criticized the fact that EU legislation classifies electric cars as zero-emission cars; they call it a deception because electric cars, like the Model 3, with all the factors, included, produce more emissions than diesel vehicles by Mercedes.

They further wrote that the EU target of 59 grams of CO2 per kilometer by 2030 is “technically unrealistic.”

The reality is, in addition to the CO2 emissions generated in mining the raw materials for the production of electric vehicles, all EU countries generate significant CO2 emissions from charging the vehicles’ batteries using dirty power plants.

For true emission reductions, researchers concluded the study by saying methane-powered gasoline engines or hydrogen motors could cut CO2 emissions by a third and possibly eliminate the need for diesel motors.

“Methane technology is ideal for the transition from natural gas vehicles with conventional engines to engines that will one day run on methane from CO2-free energy sources. This being the case, the German federal government should treat all technologies equally and promote hydrogen and methane solutions as well.”

So maybe Elon Musk’s plan to save the world with electric cars is the biggest scam of our lifetime…

“They’re Called Christians”: Conservatives Mock Obama, Clinton For Tweets About Sri Lankan ‘Easter Worshippers’

Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are being roundly criticized for their apparently coordinated decision not to use the word ‘Christian’ to describe the victims of the Easter Sunday bombings in Sri Lanka, which targeted three Catholic churches, among other targets. Some even speculated whether Obama’s and Clinton’s decision was intended to undermine the Christian faith in the US.

Obama

Instead of using the label “Christians”, Obama and Clinton referred to the victims of the attacks as “Easter Worshippers”, elicited ridicule from conservatives on Twitter.https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-04-22/theyre-called-christians-conservatives-mock-obama-clinton-tweets-about-sri-lankan

Churches Have Become The #1 Target For Hate Attacks: An Average Of 105 Every Single Month

Authored by Michael Snyder via The End of The American Dream blog,

The bombings in Sri Lanka have once again put a spotlight on the rising tide of violence against Christians all over the world.  According to Open Doors USA, an average of 105 churches and/or Christian buildings are burned or attacked every month.  That is more than three per day, and almost all of those attacks get ignored by the mainstream media in the western world.  In addition, an average of 345 Christians are killed for faith-related reasons every single month. 

Of course these numbers will soon be out of date, because violence against Christians continues to escalate all over the globe, and the horrifying attacks that we just witnessed in Sri Lanka are a perfect example.  The following comes from CBS News

A series of eight bombings in Sri Lanka targeting Christian churches and hotels in three cities killed at least 207 people and wounded up to 450 others on Easter Sunday. Defense Minister Ruwan Wijewardene described the coordinated blasts as a terrorist attack by religious extremists.

More specifically, the attackers were Muslim extremists.

Why does the mainstream media have to be so politically-correct all the time?

Of course this comes right on the heels of the fire that almost destroyed the Notre Dame Cathedral.  Authorities are still attempting to determine the cause of that fire, but we do know that many other churches have been hit by vandals and arsonists in France since the beginning of February…https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-04-22/churches-have-become-1-target-hate-attacks-average-105-every-single-month

Toxic Arsenic Found In Major Bottled Water Brands

Consumer Reports (CR) is now warning the public about a serious issue, where 11 brands of bottled water, out of 130 had detectable levels of highly toxic, arsenic, and six of those brands had levels above 3 parts per billion (ppb) — the maximum level allowed by CR.

“Of those, six had levels of 3 ppb or higher,” according to CR officials. “These brands are Starkey owned by Whole Foods, Peñafiel owned by Keurig Dr. Pepper, Crystal Geyser Alpine Spring Water, Volvic owned by Danone, and two regional brands, Crystal Creamery, and EartH₂O.”

Research from the World Health Organization (WHO) has shown long-term exposure to arsenic in drinking water can cause cancer and skin lesions. It has also been linked to cardiovascular disease and diabetes. In children, arsenic can cause negative impacts on cognitive development and increased deaths.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) limits arsenic in bottled water to 10 ppb. But CR is now demanding the federal government revise the level to 3ppb.

“It makes no sense that consumers can purchase bottled water that is less safe than tap water,” says James Dickerson, Ph.D., chief scientific officer at CR. “If anything, bottled water—a product for which people pay a premium, often because they assume it’s safer—should be regulated at least as strictly as tap water.”

Keurig Dr Pepper spoke with CR last week and said its Peñafiel production facility in Mexico had been taken offline for several weeks while it would improve its filtration system to lower arsenic level. The company said it conducted new testing after questions from CR found levels above the federal limit, at an average of 17 ppb.

Cornell scientists create ‘living’ machines that eat, grow, and evolve

Cornell scientists create ‘living’ machines that eat, grow, and evolve

The field of robotics is going through a renaissance thanks to advances in machine learning and sensor technology. Each generation of robot is engineered with greater mechanical complexity and smarter operating software than the last. But what if, instead of painstakingly designing and engineering a robot, you could just tear open a packet of primordial soup, toss it in the microwave on high for two minutes, and then grow your own ‘lifelike’ robot?

If you’re a Cornell research team, you’d grow a bunch and make them race.

Scientists from Cornell University have successfully constructed DNA-based machines with incredibly life-like capabilities. These human-engineered organic machines are capable of locomotion, consuming resources for energy, growing and decaying, and evolving. Eventually they die.

That sure sounds a lot like life, but Dan Luo, professor of biological and environmental engineering in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at Cornell, who worked on the research, says otherwise. He told The Stanford Chronicle:

We are introducing a brand-new, lifelike material concept powered by its very own artificial metabolism. We are not making something that’s alive, but we are creating materials that are much more lifelike than have ever been seen before.

Just how lifelike? According to the research they’re on par with biologically complex organisms such as mold:

Here, we report a bottom-up construction of dynamic biomaterials powered by artificial metabolism, representing a combination of irreversible biosynthesis and dissipative assembly processes. An emergent locomotion behavior resembling a slime mold was programmed with this material by using an abstract design model similar to mechanical systems.

And the racing part is no joke, the paper goes on to state:

An emergent racing behavior of two locomotive bodies was achieved by expanding the program. Other applications, including pathogen detection and hybrid nanomaterials, illustrated further potential use of this material. Dynamic biomaterials powered by artificial metabolism could provide a previously unexplored route to realize “artificial” biological systems with regenerating and self-sustaining characteristics.

Basically, the Cornell team grew their own robots using a DNA-based bio-material, observed them metabolizing resources for energy, watched as they decayed and grew, and then programmed them to race against each other. We would have made them compete in a karaoke competition, but Cornell’s application is also impressive.

NYT: The Tables Have Turned — Time To Investigate The FBI, Steele And The Rest Of The ‘Witch Hunters’

As we now shift from the “witch hunt” against Trump to ‘investigating the investigators’ who spied on him – remember this; Donald Trump was supposed to lose the 2016 election by almost all accounts. And had Hillary won, as expected, none of this would have seen the light of day

We wouldn’t know that a hyper-partisan FBI had spied on the Trump campaign, as Attorney General William Barr put it during his April 10 Congressional testimony

We wouldn’t know that a Clinton-linked operative, Joseph Mifsud, seeded Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos with the rumor that Russia had ‘Dirt’ on Hillary Clinton – which would later be coaxed out of Papadopoulos by a Clinton-linked Australian ambassador, Alexander Downer, and that this apparent ‘setup’ would be the genesis of the FBI’s “operation crossfire hurricane” operation against the Trump campaign. 

We wouldn’t know about the role of Fusion GPS – the opposition research firm hired by Hillary Clinton’s campaign to commission the Steele dossier. Fusion is also linked to the infamous Trump Tower meeting, and hired Nellie Ohr – the CIA-linked wife of the DOJ’s then-#4 employee, Bruce Ohr. Nellie fed her husband Bruce intelligence she had gathered against Trump while working for Fusion, according to transcripts of her closed-door Congressional testimony. 

And if not for reporting by the Daily Caller‘s Chuck Ross and others, we wouldn’t know that the FBI sent a longtime spook, Stefan Halper, to infiltrate and spy on the Trump campaign – after the Obama DOJ paid him over $400,000 right before the 2016 US election (out of more than $1 million he received while Obama was president).  Read more: https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-04-21/nyt-tables-have-turned-time-investigate-fbi-steele-and-rest-witch-hunters

Teachers Warn That Children As Young As Nine Are Talking About Suicide In School

by Nwo Report

Anxiety, self-harm & suicide are rising, according to survey of school leaders & teachers in UK

UK school children as young as nine years old have talked about suicide in class, a teachers’ survey has revealed

The survey also warned that mental health issues are at crisis point and are affecting younger and younger children.

The Telegraph reports: Four in five teachers said they have seen a rise in pupils experiencing mental health problems, according to a poll conducted by the National Education Union (NEU).

The survey of over 8,674 teachers and support staff found that 83 per cent saw a rise in the past two years. “Sats pressure and general expectations are taking their toll on more vulnerable pupils,” one teacher commented, adding: “We have nine-year-olds talking about suicide.”

Another said she had seen “much more anxiety” and self-harming among pupils, adding that there have been “three suicides in three years in my school alone.”

Some of those questioned said student mental health was at a “crisis point”, with others saying it was affecting “younger and younger children”.

The staff were also asked whether their workplace had the provision for supporting pupils with mental health issues.

Just under half (49 per cent) said they had a school counsellor, but the majority of teachers (59 per cent) said they had learning support assistants. 29 per cent reported having a school nurse, and 12 per cent said they had a mental health first aider.

Rosamund McNeil, the NEU’s assistant general secretary, said: “We are hearing from teachers and headteachers that social media is one of the triggers that is leading them to worry about mental health.

“Social media is part of the picture and young people being on screens for more of the time. At home children can be on screens quite a great deal, it means people don’t have a break from peer relations and bullying can be a factor.”

Ms McNeil said that over the past three to five years, spending time online has become a “significant feature” in children’s lives.

Asked what prevents them from fully supporting pupils with mental health issues, the most common reasons cited by teachers were workload and difficulties accessing support such as Educational Psychologists.

57 per cent of teachers blamed funding cuts, while 32 per cent said the “narrowing of the curriculum” was also a factor.

Research published last month suggests that more than one in 10 boys at primary school are being labelled as suffering from a mental disorder, amid growing concerns about their classroom behaviour.

An NHS report, which examines the factors which may increase the risk of mental illness, found young boys were twice as likely as girls the same age to suffer such problems.

Experts said that “difficult” behaviour in young children could be a sign of emotional distress that they struggled to talk about. Compulsory health education lessons, due to be introduced next year, will encourage children to limit their time on Facebook, smartphones and games consoles and spend more time outdoors with friends.

Judicial Watch Sues State Department Over John Kerry’s ‘Shadow Diplomacy’ to Salvage Iran Nuke Deal

by Nwo Report

Source: Gateway Pundit

Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch sued the State Department on Monday for emails, texts and instant chats with John Kerry and State Department officials and/or Kerry meetings with Iranian officials.

The watchdog group filed a [Freedom of Information Act] FOIA lawsuit (Judicial Watch, Inc. v. U.S. Department of State(No. 1:19-cv-00777)) against the Department of State over former Secretary of State John Kerry’s ‘shadow diplomacy’ to salvage the “Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (also known as JCPOA or ‘Iran nuclear deal’).

-REWIND-

Last May, it was reported by the Boston Globe that Barack Obama’s former Secretary of State, John Kerry had been secretly meeting with foreign officials to salvage Iran’s nuclear weapons program.

He [John Kerry] sat down at the United Nations with Foreign Minister Javad Zarif to discuss ways of preserving the pact limiting Iran’s nuclear weapons program. It was the second time in about two months that the two had met to strategize over salvaging a deal they spent years negotiating during the Obama administration, according to a person briefed on the meetings.

With the Iran deal facing its gravest threat since it was signed in 2015, Kerry has been on an aggressive yet stealthy mission to preserve it, using his deep lists of contacts gleaned during his time as the top US diplomat to try to apply pressure on the Trump administration from the outside. President Trump, who has consistently criticized the pact and campaigned in 2016 on scuttling it, faces a May 12 deadline to decide whether to continue abiding by its terms.

John Kerry also reportedly met with French President Emmanuel Macron in both New York City and Paris.

On May 8th, 2018, President Trump announced he was set to withdraw from Obama’s Iran nuke deal calling it one of the worst deals he’s ever witnessed.

Leading up to Trump’s announcement, John Kerry, the architect of the Iran nuke deal, was reportedly behind the scenes on a “stealthy yet aggressive mission” of shadow diplomacy, desperately trying to preserve his pact by meeting with Iranian official, Javad Zarif.

Iran’s foreign minister Javad Zarif abruptly announced his resignation in February of this year in an Instagram post.

Trump’s current Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called John Kerry’s meeting with “the world’s largest state-sponsor of terror” “unseemly and unprecedented” and “beyond inappropriate.”

“John Kerry wasn’t elected president, so he should avoid colluding with Iran and other foreign government to undermine U.S. foreign policy,” said Judicial Watch President Fitton. “Our lawsuit is meant to discover not only what Kerry was up to but also to unearth who inside the Deep State Trump ‘resistance’ were coordinating with Kerry’s clandestine efforts to undermine the President Trump’s Iran policy.”

Barack Obama and his officials continue to undermine President Trump on the world stage without fear of reprisal.

John Kerry was previously seen in Paris meeting with Iranian officials, Obama was recently in Germany secretly meeting with Chancellor Merkel and Hillary Clinton traveled to Puerto Rico (US territory) in January to meet with the governor of San Juan to help rebuild infrastructure after a powerful hurricane destroyed the island.

Apparently the Logan Act only applies to Republicans (General Flynn).

Minneapolis Public School Has Kids Color Pictures Of Ilhan Omar. Public Schools Haven’t Been So Kind About Trump.

by Nwo Report

Public school students in Minnesota are being instructed to write reports on Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and color photos of the controversial Democrat, a report from Powerline claims:

“Omar is being raised to heroic status in her district’s public schools. Elementary school students are apparently being taught to revere her, much as, in recent years, they have been taught to see Martin Luther King, Jr. as a kind of secular saint. Someone has distributed an Ilhan Omar card that students are instructed to color, while writing a ‘report’ on the inside.”

“This photo came from a public elementary school in Minneapolis,” Powerline said, noting that reports of a suburban school district within the state participating in the same coloring activity remain unconfirmed.

The project raises an issue of bias, or at least inconsistent standards with regard to public schools and politics — specifically, potential double standards involving President Donald Trump.

For example, in 2018, a high student from a public school in Oregon, Addison Barnes, was suspended for wearing a T-shirt supporting President Trump. “Donald J. Trump Border Wall Construction Co.,” the T-shirt read.

The student ended up suing the school and won on First Amendment grounds.

In March of 2018, a student from a public school in Georgia caught her teacher on video lecturing about how terrible President Trump is, claiming he has “killed millions,” reported The Daily Wire:

“‘When my president says let’s Make America Great Again, when was he talking about?’ Sixth-grade teacher Johnetta Benton is heard asking, later suggesting that Trump means ‘[America] was great for Europeans,’ but ‘when it comes to minorities, America has never been great for minorities.'”

Last month, students were suspended for simply wearing gear with President Trump’s “Make America Great Again” logo. AZ Central reported:

“Parents at a Southeast Valley high school are upset after they say school administrators demanded their children remove clothing and accessories that touted President Donald Trump’s ‘Make America Great Again’ logo.

Parents say at least one student was suspended in the Friday incident.”

“I feel bad for these children. I don’t agree with everything our president does or says, but I respect our country and I’ll support these kids using their freedom of speech,” one of the students’ parents said.

And earlier this month, it was reported that a sixth-grader at a New York public school, Bella Moscato, was told that she could not select Trump as her personal “hero.”

Moscato’s teacher apparently told her that Trump “spreads negativity and says bad stuff about women” when she rejected the 11-year-old’s choice.

“This was really frustrating to me because, you know, my daughter has every right to pick a hero of her choice. It’s first amendment right, freedom of speech, freedom of expression. So it was really upsetting to me that she was trying to shut her down,” said mother Valerie Moscato.

WATCH:

An 11-year-old girl named Bella Moscato was not allowed to have President Donald Trump as her hero for a class assignment.

Teachers should do their jobs and teach students instead of pushing their political opinions on them.

Freshman Democrat Officially Loses It — Set To Go On HUNGER STRIKE to ‘Shut Down ICE’

by Nwo Report

Source: J.R.

Freshman Democrat Rashida Tlaib must want to be remembered as a martyr or something.

The Michigan lawmaker is now calling for people to join her in a hunger strike until Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is shut down.

In other words – OPEN BORDERS!

From Free Beacon:

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.) urged her supporters to join her in a hunger strike to push for action to “shut down” U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), arguing the radical push to abolish ICE can’t be achieved by Congress.

Tlaib, headlining a Detroit fundraiser this past weekend for the Michigan Coalition for Human Rights, complained of colleagues who are constantly “policing” what she says and lack willingness to embrace bold stands such as abolishing ICE. She called on her activist audience to join her in a hunger strike at the border.

“It’s going to take movements outside the halls of Congress,” Tlaib told the crowd, according to video captured by America Rising, a conservative group.

“I want you all to shut them down, we can shut them down,” Tlaib said to applause. “Don’t wait for this Congress to act, shut them down.”

“I know what they’re going to say, they’ll go, ‘What do you mean Rashida?’ Well I’ll tell you. There are some people that are using hunger strike, all these other things, going to the border, and I plan to.”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=45Gkxn4_HkM

Tlaib may have recently been busted for violating campaign finance laws.

She’s got bigger fish to fry than worrying about whether or not illegals are granted entry into America.

From Daily Caller:

Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib reportedly paid herself $17,500 from her election campaign funds — after she won her midterm election in November 2018.

That appears to be a violation of campaign finance rules, the Washington Free Beacon reported Friday. In total, campaign records reveal that the congresswoman paid herself a salary of $45,000 before and after the election.

FEC rules state that campaign funds can no longer be transferred to a candidate once that person ceases to be a candidate.

“If the candidate loses the primary, withdraws from the race, or otherwise ceases to be a candidate, no salary payments may be paid beyond the date he or she is no longer a candidate,” the rules state.

Naughty, naughty, Rashida!

Some Democrats truly believe that freshman Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar (MN) is a victim, despite knowingly trivializing 9/11, disparaging Israel at every turn, and calling for the release of a jailed member of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Take this woman, for example, who argues that Congressional Democrats are not doing their jobs in protecting Omar…

The attacks on @IlhanMN and subsequent lack of support from Democratic leadership continues to prove that this system was never meant for us.

Do not applaud diversity and the “first” Muslims in any space if you’re not willing to be a true ally and defend us.#IStandwithIlhan.
